Glades area homeless counted


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN Does
a person have to live under a
bridge, or push their belongings
around in an old shopping cart
to be considered homeless?
This image of homelessness
is not always an accurate one.
According to the Florida Heart-
land Rural Consortia for the
Homeless (FHRCH), an individu-
al is homeless if they lack a fixed,
regular and adequate nighttime
residence, or have a temporary
nighttime residence. This defini-


tion is specified in Florida Statute
420.621.
Another media image of the
homeless portrays them clus-
tered in urban settings. This is
not accurate either. Inland rural
areas are frequently overlooked
by government agencies and
charities for the homeless be-
cause of the focus on metropoli-
tan areas.
Erica Villafuerte is the presi-
dent of Hendry/Glades Homeless
Coalition, a member of FHRCH,
and that has been in existence
for about a year. Ms. Villafuerte


is also the director of SHIP and
is familiar with the needs of resi-
dents who have inadequate shel-
ter in Glades County.
She realizes that people may.
be surprised to know there
are homeless people in Glades
County. This is partly due to the
stereotype of urban recluses liv-
ing under a bridge. There are
"dwellings" within the county
that simply are not adequate
shelters -- storage sheds, lean-
tos, breezy shacks and rusted-
out travel trailers.
FHRCH researches data on


the homeless and their charac-
teristics. An estimate of the total
number of homeless in Glades
County was completed in Janu-
ary 2007. FHRCH is required to
compile data on homeless popu-
lations that are served in its six-
county area, including Glades
County.
On this single day of research,
61 people were documented as
homeless by checking with local
resources; social .service agen-
cies, the Glades County Sheriff's
Office and Angela Snow, direc-
tor of emergency management;


as well as actual footwork in the
community.
Erica Villafuerte would like
concerned residents to know
that much more time and input
is needed to make really accu-
rate estimates.
She and the members of
Hendry/Glades Homeless Coali-
tion are seeking help Il':m local
schools, churches, law enforce-
ment and advocates for the
needy. They rhay be able to help
refer families and individuals to

Residents revive
celebration

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN The
Fourth of July celebration at
Perry City Park has been re-
vived in order to raise funds for
a pavilion which will be part of
the planned water park. The
holiday event was held annu-
ally until about 1999.
Since there is not enough
money for the pavilion, local
residents -organized quickly
and put together a small cel-
ebration that kept children
busy, and sold food and bev-
erages as a fund raiser for city
park additions.
Wednesday,. the Fourth of
July, was a very hot and steamy
day. Luckily, snow cones and
shade trees helped parents
and children cool off so they
could enjoy the events.

Janet Gonzalez talks about
how her family planned to raise
farm animals so that their three
children could take an interest
in it.
Evidence of their new life
was on the kitchen counter:
nearly two gallons of hand-
gathered fresh eggs were by
the sink, ready to be washed
and cooled.
The children contribute to
the family business with their
daily chores. Their oldest daugh-
ter is also named Janet, and
a younger daughter is Heidy.

Guest Commentary


Reducing greenhouse gas emissions important


By Lewis Hay, III
Chairman and CEO
FPL Group, Inc.
The threat of major, long-term
environmental and- economic
damage from climate change is
real and warrants action to slow,
stop and eventually reverse growth
in greenhouse gas emissions such
as C02. Because industrial activity
is at least partly to blame for the
problem, business leaders have a
responsibility to be part of the so-
lution. It is critical to put the right
policies in place that will be effec-
tive in reducing emissions without
imposing unacceptable costs or
needlessly shocking the economy.
Bad policy can .be just as damag-
ing as no policy. In addressing this
issue, we need to think as Florid-
ians because different potential
policies can vary dramatically in
their impact on our state.
At FPL, we invested significant-
ly in making our existing power
plants more efficient and building
highly efficient plants to meet the
needs of our growing customer
base. Our fuel mix is diversified,
and about half of our electricity
today is generated from cleaner
natural gas and a fifth from nucle-
ar. That starkly contrasts to the to-
tal U.S. fuel mix used to generate
electricity with coal producing
half of the nation's power. Most of
those coal plants are traditional,
less efficient plants with higher
rates of C02 emissions.
If we are not diligent about de-
tails of new federal C02 policies,
Floridians could end up paying
twice. By investing in clean and
efficient technologies, we already
have paid for our cleaner skies
and lower emissions rates. In
fact, if all U.S. electric companies


reduced their C02 emissions to
the same level as FPL Group, the
nation's C02 emissions would be
better than required by the Kyoto
Protocol. We have achieved this
standard in part because of our
national leadership in renewable
energy, such as wind. It would be
grossly unfair if we were forced
by the federal government to
pay to clean up other regions of
the country that have enjoyed
the lower prices associated with
cheaper traditional coal plants
and inefficient generation, and
consequently much higher emis-
sions.
Certain Congressional propos-
als addressing C02 and climate
change would require every com-
pany simply to reduce their emis-
sions by the same percent relative
to their historical level of emis-
sions, without regard for efficien-
cy records or customer growth.
It's like asking a 300-pound man
and a 165-pound man each to
lose 25 per cent of their weight.
The 300-pound man the inef-
ficient, high emitter of C02 in our
analogy--clearly needs to lose
the weight and more. The 165-
pound man -- who has made the
difficult decisions and the sacri-
fices necessarily to be fit simply
doesn't have any weight to lose.
Instead, in a perverse twist, un-
der some Congressional cap and
trade proposals, the lean man will
have to buy allowances from the
overweight man just to meet the
arbitrary reduction mandate. In
real terms, Floridians, because
companies like FPL have already
reduced C02 emissions rates
significantly over recent years
and thus have little, if any, more
"weight" to lose, will have to buy


credits from companies in other
states. In contrast, a policy that
simply puts a price on carbon and
keeps raising that price provides a
powerful market incentive to the
heavy carbon emitters to change
their fuel diet without penalizing
those who have already achieved
C02 "fitness."
Likewise, a C02 policy that ig-
nores Florida's growth rate would
be like asking a fast-growing 14-
year old athlete to lose weight at
the same rate as his sedentary
middle-aged parents. It is unrea-
sonable and can be dangerous to
his health.
While it may be possible for
Congress to agree to a reasonably
fair and effective cap and trade
system, there is no assurance that
this will be the case. Moreover,
it will be administratively com-
plex, expensive, subject to fraud
and substantially harmful to our
economy. FPL recommends a
straightforward fee to be imposed
equally on all carbon used as fuel
anywhere in the nation. It puts a
price on carbon as it enters the
market -- a direct way that is sim-
ple and inexpensive to administer,
fair in its application and effec-
tive in achieving lower emissions
while encouraging technological
advancement.
The carbon fee spreads the
burden across the entire economy
so that transportation, electricity
generation and all other sectors
are equally encouraged to take ac-
tion. Starting at $10 per ton of car-
bon content and rising every year,
the fee provides a real price signal
to change consumer behavior and
incentives for investments in new
technology and alternative fuels.
Proceeds from the fee should be


put back into the economy to
help fund development and de-
ployment of carbon capture and
alternative fuel technologies and
to compensate low-income con-
sumers who might be hurt by the
price increases. This is not a tax
because 1) it would be revenue-
neutral to government, and 2) you
can actually avoid paying a fee by
choosing not to emit carbon.
Economists such as Paul Volker
and Robert Reich are among those
who support a fee to control car-
bon use. Commentator Thomas
Friedman and former Vice Presi-
dent Al Gore also suggest pricing
carbon into all goods and services
nationwide rather than allow his'
torical levels of C02 emissions
to be "grandfathered" or given
"free" allowances. Even a recent
report by the Intergovernmental
Panel on Climate Change, a group
under the direction of the UN and
the WMO, notes that a fee would
be an efficient way to internalize
the price of greenhouse gases and
that emission allowances have
distributional consequences and'
price volatility that make it difficult'
to predict the cost of compliance.'
A price on carbon makes com-
plete sense to economists and
also is fairest to Florida.
We encourage Floridians to
learn everything they can about
the issue, to take whatever con-
servation steps they can person-
ally, and to ask their U.S. Senators
and Representatives to look out,
for Florida 's interests while pro-
viding good policy for the nation-
and the world.
A national fee on carbon as
fuel is fair, equitable, effective and,
responsible. It is a policy whose
time has come.

Early in the contest
Children loved the bubble blowing contest at the Fourth of
July event in Moore Haven. They were antsy and fidgeting
around while they waited for the bubble gum to be passed
out. Here they exhibit fast and strenuous chewing before
they form their bubbles.

Shooting in Harlem injures three


Officials search
for shooter

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
HARLEM Witnesses say
a man involved in an argument
with another man shot several
rounds at him, hitting him -- and
two others by accident -- in a dis-
pute in Harlem on Monday.
* The shooting victims all sur-
vived, and officials are now
searching for Joe Nathan Willing-
ham,. also known as "Sunshine,"
for questioning.
The incident happened July 9th
at 1068 Harlem Academy.
According to a probable cause
affidavit provided by the Hendry
County Sheriff's Office, an argu-
ment between, the two subjects


started shortly before 10 p.m.
Witnesses at the scene said the
two were arguing about one hav-
ing reportedly hit the other with
his car earlier.
Before long, one man pulled a
gun out and reportedly fired sev-
eral times at the other hitting him
in the left upper thigh/buttock
area. Markeith Dwan Pope, 29,
told officials he tried to run away
from the shooter, fearing that he
would be shot in the face, and,
when he felt a sting in his leg,
knew he had been hit.
According to the report, at
the hospital, Pope told investi-
gators that he wanted to press
charges against his attacker, but
also warned deputies that if they
didn't "do y'all's job," his "boys'll
handle it."
Pope said he knew the sus'


pect.
'lo others were also injured
in the shooting.
Both said they did not know
what had happened, and had
only heard arguing. They said
they were not sure who had shot
them.
Surveillance video at the near-
by Sony's Service Center store
showed the scene as it played
out. Investigators are reviewing
the video for evidence, but are
looking for Mr. Willingham for
further questioning.
If you have any information
about this crime, you are urged
to contact the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office at 983-1440.

FHP reported 31 holiday fatalities


TALLAHASSEE -.Thirty one
people were killed in crashes
investigated by Florida Highway
Patrol troopers over the six-day
July fourth holiday driving period,
which began July 3 and ended
July 8. During this period, troop-
ers charged 167 people with driv-
ing under the influence; issued
7,589 speeding citations; issued
1,426 seatbelt and child restraint
citations; and assisted 4,225 mo-
torists on Florida's highways. The,
Florida Highway Patrol again par-
ticipated in Operation C.A.R.E.
(Combined Accident Reduction


Effort), a national program aimed
at reducing the number of traffic
crashes on interstate highways
during holiday periods. During
the official holiday driving period
(Tuesday, July 3, through Sunday
July 8), the Florida Highway Pa-
trol investigated 2,270 collisions.
The statistical information provid-
ed below represents preliminary
figures and covers only those
crashes investigated by Florida
Highway Patrol troopers:
The 31 deaths occurred in
28 separate traffic crashes.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), Jacksonville District, Regulatory Division,
invites you to a public scoping workshop on the proposed permit application from the
South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) to construct additional
Stormwater Treatment Areas (STAs) on parcels of land referred to as Compartments B
and C of the Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA) in Palm Beach and Hendry Counties.
The purpose of the workshop is to provide information and take public comment.
Information will be provided at a series of interactive stations with no formal presentation.
As part of the permit review process, the Corps is evaluating the environmental effects associ-
ated with construction and operation of the STAs. The Corps will prepare an Environmental

Curry Is

By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to
Glades County Democrat
Thear there are those around
in both town and country of the
"chosen" counties that border
Lake Okeechobee: Glades, Hen-
dry, Palm Beach and Okeechobee,
and also, since they are so geo-
graphically close, St. Lucie and
Highlands, who know about it.
But then there are more than a
few who don't. Curry Island. A
spit of land in Glades County, on
the western perimeter of the Big
Lake that in days a-gone was a
real honest-to-God island before
those who thought they could
improve the earth got to digging
and ditching.
And there's a story about the
fruit that grows there, the guava/
guajava that has taken to the wilds
of the used-to-be island like bees
to honey or bass to the lake.
It's still called an island, but
when all the diking was going on
close to the lake, the water level
of the lake was lowered, thus the
island became connected to the
land at one point, therefore an
island as such, it is no more. Nev-
ertheless, in. this part of the world,
it's still Curry Island, where, the
biggest and best of the biggest
and best guajavas grow. Their
chosen time of year is September
and October.
According to the late Vance
Whidden of Moore Haven, who
was a well-known native Floridi-
an and served as a Glades County
Commissioner for 20 years, there
used to be untold numbers of the
trees, great stands of them on
Curry Island. Now, sadly enough,
there are relatively few but those
that remain are big and bountiful,
and so far this look as if it will be
a good year..
As to the name of the island,
according to Mr. Whidden, there
used to be a commercial fisher-
man who had his place on the
left, the north, that is, right there
at the island. Everybody called
him Uncle Will, Uncle Will Curry,
so the island just got to be called
Curry Island. This was way back
in the early 1900s. Mr. Whidden's
grandfather, who was also a
Florida native, lived on that island
for a long, long time. They had a
pitcher pump and they farmed
right there.
In fact, a lot of people lived
- on that island before the big hur-
ricane in the late 1920s and a
few stayed on afterwards but not

many.
'And the story goes on that one
of the biggest moonshine opera-
tions in these parts was on that is-
land. It was owned by the Parker
brothers who were in the cattle
business. All the land was open
range then, but it was the still that
was the real money maker.
There was a big concrete slab,
that's where the still was. Living
quarters were on the second floor
above the still.'
The man that ran the still
was named Cecil Johnson. They
raised corn between the island
and where 78 is now, then natu-
rally, they used the corn to make
the moonshine. That still was run
24 hours a day!
After it was made and bottled,
that moonshine was loaded on
boats and hauled to Canal Point
where they sold it. In those days
about everybody made moon-
shine. It was just another indus-
try.
One day Cecil Johnson was
headed out going to town or
somewheree" to pick up sup-
plies and things, and here comes
the prohibition officer.
The officer stopped Cecil and
said, "You're under arrest for run-
ning a moonshine operation."
Cecil was real quick with a
comeback saying, "You can't 'rest
me without a warrant and papers
to search."


The officer agreed, then sim-
ply took out handcuffs, locked
Johnson to the nearest fence
post, went back to town, got the
warrant papers, came back and
destroyed the whole operation!
'Course Johnson got arrested.
And that's the story about
moonshine-makin' on Curry Is-
land.
But getting back to the guavas
on Curry Island, Mr. Whidden said
that every few years (like 1997 for
instance), the trees get knocked
down by freezing and then for a
couple years there was little or no
fruit, but in a good year, like 1996,
those guavas were something to
see, and to taste.
And, there are those who be-
lieve that every now and then
for reasons known only to them,
guavas and guajavas simply rest
a year producing little or no fruit,
then the next year, there will be a
bumper crop.
Both varieties thrive in sub-
tropic Florida providing delicious
fruit and extraordinary beauty in
the landscape. While preferring
rich soil in a sunny location, both
are amazingly adaptable and
quite drought-tolerant when the
plants become well established.
Oddly enough neither attracts
diseases.
Raccoons and squirrels as well
as various birds prize both variet-
ies almost as much as "folks".

These tropical fruits are also
called guava apples.
As big and impressive as the
guava/guajava is, there are those
who vow that its flavor does not
compare with the Cattley guava,
commonly called strawberry
guava, which is a much smaller
fruit and close to the color of
strawberries. It is the Cattley that
is most often used in the land-
scape. There are old favorite fam-
ily recipes for making guava jelly,
or jelly-jam as the case may be.
If, in straining the juice from the
fruit after it's been cooked, the
pulp goes through the strainer,
the results will be jelly-jam. And
there are those who vow that
guava jelly-jam has a finer flavor
than the clear guava jelly.
And for guava non-purists, try
this: Just when the juice begins to
string off a spoon, which means
it's just before jelling, simply add
a box of either strawberry or rasp-
berry Jello. Stir rapidly and in a
minute or two the juice will show
it's ready to be poured into jars.
In addition to the color being en-
hanced, so the flavor will be also
-- a delicate taste of strawberry or
raspberry. You'll probably never
go back to making plain guava
jelly. (One box of either flavor to
a 4-cup jelly recipe.)

The 2006-2007 water shortage Question and answer


SThe following questions are
those frequently asked by local
residents in the South Florida Wa-
ter Management District regard-
irig recent drought situation.
SQuestion: Finally, it's started
to rain, which should help the
drought. So, why is water being
released to the ocean? Shouldn't
we be saving every drop?
Answer: We are storing as
much rain from storm water
runoff as possible, but there are
limits. Why? Because there is
not a lot of surface water storage
available in most coastal commu-
nities, particularly areas east of
1-95. That's why you may see wa-
ter being discharged: to prevent
rainfall-related flooding in some
neighborhoods.
Flooding can happen very
quickly because most of South
Florida is relatively flat, and in
heavily developed areas, natural
lands that could absorb excess
water are in short supply. Sudden,
heavy rainfall also doesn't sit long
enough on the soil to be well ab-
sorbed. In addition, most storm
water systems in older commu-
nities are not designed to handle
more than a few inches of rain
without some flooding. Those
neighborhoods, as well as larger
city or county systems, all feed
into our regional system. So, even
if it doesn't look as if your neigh-
borhood is in danger of flooding,
many communities upstream or
downstream of your neighbor-
hood may need to drain excess
water into the regional system.
In short, we simply do not
have enough places to store all
the rainfall We receive during the
wet season, and there is no way
to move water all the way back
to Lake Okeechobee. Without
the storage capacity to capture
additional rainfall, the SFWMD


must make periodic discharges of
water to tide for flood protection.
Without these discharges, streets
and homes would be flooded.
As we head into the peak of
the rainy season, additional rain-
fall likely will trigger the need for
additional flood protection dis-
charges to tide.
Question: How can you still
claim there's a drought when my
lawn is green and it's raining ev-
ery day?
Answer: Central and northern
portions of the SFWMD remain
critically dry, as wet season rains
have been highly localized over
much of the southern third of the
District. Over the past 30 days, for
example, Lake Okeechobee, a
primary backup water supply to
five million South Floridians dur-
ing the dry season, received less'
than five inches of rain, while por-
tions of Miami-Dade and Broward
counties received more than 12.
inches over the same period.
In Central Florida, this is still a
drought.
Think of a drought as a clima-
tological phenomenon where not
enough rain enters the system; a
water shortage is a community's
inability to deal with a drought.
While the Lower East Coast ap-
pears to be transitioning out of an
18-month-long, dry weather pat-
tern, it certainly is still experienc-
ing a water shortage.
Question: When will the Dis-
trict lift the restrictions?
Answer: It depends or rainfall,
Lake Okeechobee, water levels in
the regional system and a variety
of other factors. This water short-
age is the most severe and wide-
spread since the 1930s, weeks or
even months of constant rainfall
will be needed. The District will
continue to monitor conditions
daily, and when they improve,


the SFWMD Governing Board will
make the decision to modify re-
strictions.
The water shortage will end
only when enough rainfall soaks
into our underground supplies,
refills the Water Conservation
Areas and raises the level of Lake
Okeechobee. One indicator of
adequate water supply is a wa-
ter elevation of 14 feet in Lake
Okeechobee, and computer
modeling currently suggests there
is only a 10 percent chance the
lake level will climb to this eleva-
tion by the end of the current wet
season.
Question: Why are lower Lake
Okeechobee levels a concern?
Answer: It is a constant and
delicate balance: water supply
for people and the needs of the
environment. Low water levels
do benefit the lake ecosystem;
for example, submerged aquatic
vegetation receives more sunlight
and thus tends to thrive, rejuve-
nating fish and wildlife habitats
and improving the ecology of the
lake.
Habitat recovery efforts are un-
derway to remove harmful muck
layers from the exposed lakebed.
However, water levels that are too
low can be detrimental and cause
unwanted drying of critical areas.
Question: What will it take for
Lake Okeechobee's water levels
to rise again?
Answer: The water level in
Lake Okeechobee remains ex-
tremely low for this time of year,
and it will take above average
rainfall on and directly to the
north of the lake to replenish the
lake to normal levels.
SFWMD meteorologists an-
ticipate that it may be more than
a month before flows into Lake
Okeechobee from the Kissimmee
Watershed are reestablished. No


prediction can be made at this
time as to precisely when the
lake's water levels will return to
their normal elevations.
Question: What is the
minimum water level Lake
Okeechobee must reach before
we can end water restrictions?
Answer: That is hard to tell. A
variety of factors, not just the lake
level, will be used to determine
modifications to current water
restrictions; these include rainfall,
groundwater levels, other surface
water levels, soil moisture lev-
els, salinity levels in coastal well
fields, etc.
Water levels in Lake
Okeechobee are approximately
four feet below their historic aver-
age for this time of year. The lev-
els will need to rise appreciably
before any end to water restric-
tions can be declared, particularly
within the Lake Okeechobee Ser-
vice Area, which relies almost ex-
clusively on the lake as a primary
water resource.
Question: Why did you drain
the lake last year? Isn't this all
your fault?
Answer: The Army Corps of
Engineers, which is responsible
for managing water levels in the
lake, relies on the best, most
current information available to
guide water management deci-
sions; this includes long term
weather predictions from the
National Weather Service and
others.
Water discharges were made
from Lake Okeechobee during
the summer of 2006, in anticipa-
tion of what was expected to be a
very active hurricane season and
in accordance with a complex
regulation schedule, which helps
direct water management deci-
sions at specific water elevations
and times of year. These resulted


in a water level reduction of per-
haps 1.5 feet over the course of
several months.
The Army Corps of Engineers
made these decisions in light
of concerns over the structural
integrity of the Herbert Hoover
Dike and the serious flooding
threat that high lake levels pose
to communities around the lake.
The same occurred prior to the
active hurricane seasons of 2004
and 2005.


Should a storm of even mod-
erate magnitude damage the dike
when water stages are high, com-
munities like Clewiston, Pahokee
and Belle Glade could experience
catastrophic flooding. As a matter
of public safety, the lake cannot
be managed at high elevations
during the wet season, and even
if no discharges had been made,
we would still be in a severe,
long-term drought and subse-
quent water shortage.

Citrus Growers may be exemption to the rule


LAKELAND Florida citrus
growers could benefit from a re-
tent expansion of the sales tax
exemption on electricity used to
operate a farm.
SThe new exemption, which
took effect July 1, means all elec-
tricity used in the processing or
production of agricultural prod-
bicts on a farm is exempt from
sales tax. This includes electricity
used in offices, storage buildings
Ond maintenance shops.
The previous law's ambiguous


language made it unclear whether
certain uses were exempt. The re-
vision could eliminate the need to
install additional meters to segre-
gate eligible and non-eligible elec-
trical power used on the farm.
However, the new law does
not exempt the sales tax on elec-
tricity used in homes or residenc-
es even if they are located on the
farm. Growers should evaluate
their on-farm electric usage to
determine if they benefit from the
expanded exemption.


If a grower benefits, he should
contact his electric company and
provide them with an exemption
certificate. For more information
on the exemption call Rusty Wi-
ygul at (863) 682-1111.


Florida Citrus Mutual, founded
in 1948 and based in Lakeland, is

A 'Dear John' letter worth keeping Owszapco

By Pastor John Hicks from my dad. I would like to share had my mind made up, and did Your mother stood and walked i PksI ac o
-f nn .......h rnfimp,-A -..fnr- ,nin ,-c I-, 1p fir- ,t ti aftor hpr, Community Links. Individual Voices


First United
Methodist Church, Clewiston
I know it might be hard to be-
lieve, but I was somewhat of a
rebellious child growing up. My
parents and I did not always see
eye to eye. I took pride in being
the first child to
leave home. I
loved my par-
ents, but felt that
they really did
not understand
me or my deci-
sions in life.
This feeling
was so strong John
that when I was Hicks
planning to go
on a special retreat in which let-
ters of support from friends and
family were sought by a sponsor,
I didn't even give my sponsor the
name or address of my parents.
He found it anyway. What resulted
was the first letter I ever received


the blessing of tmis letter with you,
dated Dec. 13, 1987.
Dear John (I have received a
lot of "Dear John" letters in my
life!)
Your mother and I have been
asked by Mike Oliver to write you
a letter in support of your planned,
"Walk to Emmaus" in January. It
is supposed to be an opportunity
for us to express our appreciation
of you and what our relationship
means and has meant over the
years.
When you were little, I had
the same close relationship with
you that I had with the other boys
and I realize now that when you
were in Jr. High, I let you down
by not being as involved with you
in your activities as I was with
the other boys. I also did not un-
derstand your sensitivity to other
people at that time, and when
you came home with a peace
symbol, I never gave you an op-
portunity to state a position I


notL cardl LU U e cuIonU1U Dy iacts.
I was critical of your friends and
thus alienated you and never re-
ally re-established a close bond
with you. I regret that now, and if I
had the opportunity to re-run that
part of the race, I would move up
to scouts when you did, to try to
gain back the son that I had "lost"
with a few hasty words.
You are in the correct field.
From the time you were in Sr.
High, I began to see the potential,
and it really came out when you
were in college. I felt that the min-
istry was where you belonged,
but I was not the one to whom
you came for advice in those
days. I will admit that I was quite
pleased when you finally made
the decision to enter the ministry,
and I am very proud of you and
your accomplishment in dedicat-
ing yourself to a life of service to
others.
You will never know the sense
of pride we felt at your ordination.

accident, and held her head high
the whole way down the isle. That
event inspired her to do what very
few believed could be done!
Your accomplishments in
school, in the scouts and now as a
person have been sources of pride
to us which you will recognize
when you have children of your
own. The greatest gift any par-
ent can receive is to have a child
do well, and the highest feelings
of ecstasy are realized in the ac-
complishments of your off-spring.
When you do well, we glory.
Keep up your good works,
son, and hold the hand of Him
whom you have vowed to follow.
Your earthly parents love you very
much, and are very proud of you.
Your Heavenly Father must be
even more so. Love, Dad.
Would that all parents might
send such a letter of blessing to
their children!


When to argue and when not to argue


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewisto
One of the ministers who came
to his ministry after many years in
the Air Force used to say "A man
convinced against his will is of the
same opinion still." Later, I read of


a doctor's obser-
vations over the
years, who con-
cluded that our
opinions that do
not come from
reason cannot
be changed by
reason. During


my years of min- Samuel S.
istry, I've heard Thomas
many eloquent
arguments, pro and con, on all
sorts of issues. Usually, they are
well-crafted, well thought-out
and well-reasoned. They rarely
did much to change the minds of
those who took opposing views.
It seems that people rarely change
their minds in the face of logic
alone; something else must be
going on.
A recent article came across
my desk about moral judgments,
pointing out that there are many
factors in deciding what is right


or wrong other than rational de-
cisions. A person is poor, but
needs medicine for his wife: will
his stealing be wrong? Of course
it is wrong, but there is a chance
to save a life.
What to do when there is a
conflict?
Usually the deciding factor is
what matters in our own personal
life, not a textbook discussion of
right-versus-wrong. Many of the
rationalizations for doing wrong
center around the idea that the
person is somehow "entitled" to
do what he wants to do rather
than choosing a "right" answer.
People "rationalize" when
there is no rational thinking in-
volved at all. I've heard people
argue that others are "better off"
and they're somehow deprived,
so they can act out to somehow
"even things up." People some-
times just do what they want
without regard for what will hap-
pen later or who will be hurt. A
loving wife asked me one day
why her husband wouldn't go to
the doctor, even though he was
so sick and suffered so much. I
suggested that maybe he hadn't
suffered enough. "When he gets
tired of suffering, he'll go." She ac-


knowledge that "Maybe you've
got something there." We are
not really rational beings and so
many non-rational factors enter
into our decisions and choices.
It isn't learning by reasoning but
learning by consequences. There
is a poignant parable when the
lord heals a paralytic carried to
Him by four others (Mark 2:8ff).
The man was desperate and be-
lieved that the Lord would be able
to help him. When he couldn't get
close enough to Jesus, his friends
chopped a hole in the roof of the
house where Jesus was staying
and lowered the paralytic down.
Jesus said simply "My son, your
sins are forgiven." The miracle
was not so much a rational grant-
ing of a wish for healing but see-
ing the heart of the matter and
treating something far more emo-
tional that was at the root of the
problem. When questioned about
it, Jesus replies "Which is easier
to say to the paralytic 'your sins
are forgiven' or to say 'rise, take
up your pallet and walk'? (v.9)."
The pronouncement that follows
afterward is "Rise, take up your
pallet and go home (v.11)." The
healing comes from speaking to
the person where he really hurts.
The consequences of the


man's illness were so drastic that
he was willing to do something
very irrational even to have a
chance of getting well; having his
friends chop a hole in somebody's
roof just to get inside. This is not
the most rational of decisions, but
everyone understands what went
into his choices. The Lord under-
stands and acts. The Bible is not
a book of logic, or about people
who do rational things. Rather, it
is a book about people who think
and act as we do. We learn from it
because it can speak to the heart
of human conditions.
That's where we need to listen;
make our decisions; choose what
is best for others and ourselves.
Debates and arguments work
best when things are abstract and
people are indifferent; our choices
come when we stand alongside
of others, when we're personally
involved, when loving is difficult
but the only way forward. Deci-
sions about right or wrong are
never simple, never without emo-
tion, never clear-cut. Recognizing
some of the forces that weigh in
them helps in making them, and
remembering to temper them
with the best kind of love we can
offer. That's what Jesus did!


That we'll never forget: God bless America


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
On July 4, 1776, there was
signed in the city of Philadelphia
one of America's historic docu-
ments: The Declaration of Inde-
pendence. It marked the birth of
the nation which, under God, was
destined for world leadership!
But what we often forget is
that, in declaring independence
from an earthly power, our fore-
fathers made a forthright declara-
tion of dependence on Almighty
God! The closing words of this
historic document solemnly de-
clare: "With a firm reliance on the
protection of Divine Providence,
we mutually pledge to each other

our lives, our fortunes, and our
sacred honor."
It is important that we recall
this very basic Declaration Of De-
pendence, for in her prosperity
and power, and in her unique po-
sition of world leadership, Amer-
ica today is showing signs of for-
getting the God of our Fathers, the
God who gave this nation its birth
and its present greatness.
We need to be reminded of a
solemn warning that God gave to
another great nation which had
just been declared independent.
This warning is found in the Bible
and, although written over 3,000
years ago, it might well refer to
modern America today.
"For the Lord thy God brin-

Gospel music and
fellowship planned
Come join us for food, fellow-
ship, the word and great gospel


geth thee into a good land...a
land wherin thou shalt eat bread
without scarceness... (And) when
thou hast eaten and art full, then
thou shalt bless the Lord thy God
for the good land which He hath
given thee. Beware that thou for-
get not the Lord thy God:...lest
when thou hast eaten and art full,
and hast built goodly houses, and
dwelt therein; and thy silver and
thy gold is multiplied; and all that
thou hast is multiplied; then thine
heart be lifted up, and thou forget
the Lord thy God." (Deut. 8:7-14)
Indeed, history has made it
abundantly clear not only in the
lives of nations, but also of indi-
viduals, that those who by their
lives and actions declare their


music on Thursday, July 12, at
the Freedom Fellowship Minis-
tries of LaBelle. Special speaker
this month, Marsha Edgar, will

p.m. Food and fellowship will
begin at 7 p.m. Take time out to
come worship with us! All are
welcome.


independence from God, soon
become slavishly dependent
upon the circumstances of life.
On the other hand, those who
have humbly declared their de-
pendence upon God have been
remarkably free and independent
of life's changing circumstances.
So as we think again of the
birth of our great nation, may
we pray that our beloved coun-
try might have new birth of free-
dom; not a freedom from God,
which always leads to license
and ultimate slavery, but rather
a freedom built upon God and
His commandments, apart from
which any nation will eventually
perish.

Ortona Community Association held a bake sale fundraiser for the community summer pro-
gram. Local residents stopped by to support the efforts and to satisfy a sweet tooth.


Ortona Kids Are Cookin!


The Ortona Community As-
sociation's (OCA) Kids Summer
Program got off to a sizzling pre-
liminary start with a fund raising
bake sale. The goodies were pre-
pared the day before and proud-
ly displayed for sale by fifteen of
the kids enrolled in the program
,which begins July 9.
Customers who had stopped
.by the Ortona Pure Station found
the eager young salespersons
hard to resist. Under the watch-
ful eyes of program coordina-
tors Melissa Pasch and Angel
Kirtland, the children offered
their wares, carefully wrapped
purchases, added prices, and
collected money. Besides valu-
able lessons in salesmanship,


Parents, Angel Kirtland and Melissa Pasch keep watchful eyes over Ortona kids participat-
ing in the fundraiser.


"OCA is committed to our community children.
The bake sale was a very successful way for the
parents to show their support. I'm delighted that
it,is also such a great learning experience for the
kids.
Marie Kussman,
OCA board member and summer program chair


the youngsters learned to make
change and shout "thank you" in
unison.
After asking how much the
children had earned so far, one
generous customer matched the
fifty dollars in sales so far with a
fifty dollar donation. One father
present admitted that he had
helped bake the cookies that he


was now buying!
"OCA is committed to our
community children. The bake
sale was a very successful way
for the parents to show their sup-
port. I'm delighted that it is also
such a great learning experience
for the kids." OCA board mem-
ber and summer program chair,
Marie Kussman remarked.


OCA board member, Marie Kussman enjoys a day spent supervising local Ortona kids in
fundraising efforts to support the community summer program.

A Child's Guide to Florida Wildlife


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to INI Florida
"A Child's Guide to Florida
Wildlife" is a crown jewel in the
world of children's books.
Alto Adams, Jr.'s text is strong-
ly yet simply written for the young
reader.
His stunning photographs in
full color all but walk or fly off the
pages.
Questions are asked and an-
swered. Why does it rain? What
do birds eat? Why do animals
die? Where do baby birds and
Animals come from?
There are happy answers to
these and other questions that
satisfy even the most curious
young mind.
Mr. Adams writes: "In this part
of Florida young deer are born
with spots.
This is the time of year (spring)
when clover and wildflowers
bloom and these spots help the
deer to hide. As they grow older
they lose their spots."
Hammocks are explained,
as is the life of water birds, the
Osceola Wild Turkey, the Bobcat
and Alligator.
This is a small book but it car-
ries a very large message to both
children and adults. The heart
of the message is: We must not
waste our precious resources.
Florida is a good place to live but
it will continue to be a good place
for homes and animals only if we
do not waste our water and if we
take care of the land.
This treasure of a book is 8.5
x 11-inch printed on fine enamel
photographic paper in full color.
Illustrations other than Mr. Ad-
am's magnificent photographs
are by Amy Adams.


Submitted photo/Barbara Oehlbeck

The back cover, is nothing less
than a sign of hope for all of us,
a glorious double rainbow arch-
ing over water, land and trees, a
full color keepsake that must be
framed.
"A Child's GuCider to Florida


Wildlife" is a limited edition.

Plans for Sugar Institute at local college continue


BELLE GLADE Palm Beach
SCommunity College (PBCC), Belle
Glade Campus Provost Beverly
'Robinson and Tere Johnson, chief
chemist for the Belle Glade-based
Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative
of Florida, attended the American
Society of Sugar Cane Technolo-
gists conference in New Orleans
in June to present details of the
need and plans for the Sugar
Technology Institute to more than


450 attendees from around the
world. Plans call for PBCC to offer
an associate in science degree as
well as college credit certificates
in sugar technology. Provost Rob-
inson said PBCC's associate in sci-
ence degree in sugar technology
would be the only one of its kind
in North America. PBCC is estab-
lishing the program in response
to requests from industry leaders,
who anticipate a shortage of high-


ly skilled engineers and chemists
as the workforce ages and begins
retiring.
"It's giving the industry an op-
portunity to get trained, degree
individuals in the field," Robinson
said. "People from all over the
country can benefit from the pro-
gram."
The college has completed the
DACUM and is completing the
curriculum for presentation to the


curriculum committee. The DA-
CUM was developed with input
from employees and supervisors
in the industry as well as chemists
from U.S. Sugar, the Sugar Cane
Growers Cooperation of Florida
and Okeelanta Corporation (Flor-
ida Crystals). The College's new
program development schedule
has the sugar technology degree
program slated to begin in Janu-
ary 2008.


Currently, according to Rob-
inson, there are no degree pro-

Leadership grads train to take


on nonprofit challenges


WEST PALM BEACH Two
'dozen nonprofit managers are
ready to assume greater leader-
ship roles in their organizations
,to facilitate change in their com-
inunities as a result of participa-
tion in the Palm Beach County
Leadership and Management Ini-
tiative (LMI).
"When I was selected for this
program, I thought it was far too
late in my career to learn anything
new," remarked Chris Skerlec,
Palm Beach County School Dis-
trict. "After only three days in the
program, I was amazed at how
much I had learned. This course
renewed my way of thinking and
-my desire to improve things."
, For School District employee
.Connie Gregory, participation in
the LMI led to a new position. In
her new post she will be facilitat-
ing the leadership development
of others.
"I knew after a few months in
)he program that helping others
build their leadership skills was
what I was meant to do," she
said. "The LMI helped me see
that."
The Palm Beach County Lead-
ership and Management Initia-
tive is offered through a training
partnership between the Center
for Nonprofit Excellence and
the University of Miami, Division
of Continuing & International
Education. The program builds


management skills and strength-
ens leadership abilities of middle
managers in the nonprofit sector
who are the next generation of
leaders in their organizations.
This year's graduates repre-
sented the Children's Services
Council of Palm Beach County,
Early Learning Coalition, Family
Central, Inc., Health Care District
of Palm Beach County, NOAH,
Inc., Palm Beach County School
District, Resource Depot, Inc., Ur-
ban League of Palm Beach Coun-
ty and United Way of Palm Beach
County. Participants attended bi-
monthly, three-day seminars for
one year and worked in teams to
develop projects that applied key
leadership strategies to real issues
affecting Palm Beach County.
The teams presented their
projects to community leaders
on June 25. Team One designed
a community event, Get R.I.C.H.
(Resources and Information for
Children and Housing), a full day
of networking and resource ex-
change among nonprofit organi-
zations to facilitate collaboration
of county resources. Team Two,
"The Resourcefuls," assisted
with the expansion of Resource
Depot, Inc. into the Glades area.
Team Three's project, "A New
Day for VPK," envisioned a plan
to secure funding for extended
hours for low-income children in
the Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten


program.
Carol Hillier, Professional
Development Manager at the
Children's Services Council, re-
ported that the LMI "gave me an
opportunity to reflect on my own
leadership style and plan for fur-
ther leadership development."
Ms Hiller especially valued devel-
oping professional relationships
with peers in similar positions in
the nonprofit world.
The next LMI begins Aug. 29:

Wellington Regional honors heroes


PALM BEACH COUNTY -
Honoring veterans for their part
in keeping our great nation free,
was the thought behind "Honor
Our Heroes" Day held on July 3,
at Wellington Regional Medical
Center (WRMC). The event was
sponsored by the hospital's Busi-
ness Office, Service Excellence
Committee.
The Committee collected do-
nations for one week prior to the
event, with all funds raised, ben-
efiting the VA Center for Combat
Veterans, located on 10th Avenue
in Lake Worth. For a small dona-
tion, hospital employees were
permitted to wear blue jeans to


work on July 3 and encouraged to
wear red, white and blue to show
their support.
The VA Center helps veterans
in our local communities by pro-
viding services to assist them and
their family members to achieve a
successful post-war adjustment.
Areas of staff expertise include:
'post-traumatic stress disorder;
crisis intervention, individual and
group counseling; relationship
issues; sexual trauma; bereave-
ment counseling.
Thanks to the generosity of
employees and to a special pa-
tient of the hospital, Francis Drake.
Upon learning of the fundraiser to


benefit the Veterans Center, Mr.
Drake, himself a World War II
veteran, most generously contrib-
uted $1,000 to the cause. At a spe-
cial presentation, Marshall Goby,
Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist and
retired US Colonel, now with the
VA Center, was presented with a
check for over $1,900.
"I am proud of the employees
of Wellington Regional Medical
Center for recognizing the contri-
butions of our nation's veterans
and making this effort to give back
in some small way," said Kevin Di-
Lallo, Wellington Regional Chief
Executive Officer.

Dry conditions set records in Lake Okeechobee


WEST PALM BEACH The
vast Kissimmee-Okeechobee-Ev-
erglades system, which spans 16
counties across South Florida, is
expected to continue breaking
records this week. According to
water managers at the South Flor-
ida Water Management District
(SFWMD), July 6, will mark 240
days eight months since water
flowed from the Kissimmee River
into Lake Okeechobee. At the
same time, a persistent pattern
of below average rainfall over the
Lake Okeechobee basin resulted
in yet another record low water
level for the 730-square-mile lake,
as a new all-time low of 8.82 feet
above sea level was recorded
Tuesday morning.
"In order to release water from
Lake Kissimmee and the connect-
ed lake system into the Kissim-
mee River, the water levels in all
of the lakes would have to climb
above their regulation schedules,"
said Lawrence Glenn, director of


the SFWMD's Kissimmee Divi-
sion. "At this point, it would take'
well above normal rainfall over
the remainder of the wet season
to achieve that."
In accordance with regulation
schedules set by the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers for the Kissim-
mee River and water bodies in the
Kissimmee Chain of Lakes region,
water structures that normally al-
low the flow of water from the
Kissimmee River into the lake
have been closed since Novem-
ber 8, 2006. The southernmost
and northernmost ends of the
river remain impassable by boat,
and small islands have appeared
on miles of banks that normally
would be flooded this time of
year.
Despite recent rains, water
levels remain below normal in
the Kissimmee watershed that
typically helps replenish Lake
Okeechobee, and backup water
storage in the watershed has been


lost because of the severe regional
drought.
Meanwhile, along the lower
east coast, groundwater levels
are steadily rising, aided by above
average rainfall in June, includ-
ing more than 12 inches of rain
recorded over the past 30 days
in coastal areas of Miami-Dade
and Broward counties. These
rains are replenishing water levels
along Palm Beach, Broward, Mi-
ami-Dade and Monroe counties,
where many residential canals
and local storm water ponds are
now full. Water Conservation Ar-
eas 1, 2 and 3 are all nearly a foot
-above their respective floor eleva-
tions established by the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers and have been
recovering steadily since the start
of the wet season.
Given limited water storage op-
tions in residential areas of these
counties and without the 'ability
to move water all the way back
to Lake Okeechobee, additional


wet season rainfall likely will trig-
ger the need for periodic flood
protection discharges to tide.
Without these discharges, streets
and homes could be inundated in
even modest rain events.
"This combination of manag-
ing the system for a lack of water
to the north and for flood control
to the south demonstrates the
variability and challenges present-
ed by this dynamic regional water
system," added Terrie Bates, As-
sistant Deputy Executive Director
for Water Resources, "Even while
Lake Okeechobee remains at re-
cord lows, counties along the low-
er east coast are now seeing good
signs of recovery as above aver-
age rains replenish groundwater
levels, canals and wetlands."
South Florida's regional water
management system is an inter-
connected network of natural
water bodies, conveyance canals,
water conservation areas and
water control structures. The Kis-


simmee-Okeechobee-Everglades
system is comprised of three pri-
mary regions, each with unique
hydrological features, distinct land
forms and land uses, differing
populations and human impacts,
and notable differences in water
sources and uses. Approximately
seven million South Floridians de-
pend on water from this system.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District is a regional,
governmental agency that over-
sees the water resources in the
southern half of the state from
Orlando to the Keys. It is the old-
est and largest of the state's five
watei management districts. The
agency's mission is to manage
and protect water resources of the
region by balancing and improv-
ing water quality, flood control,
natural systems and water supply.
A key initiative is cleanup and res-
toration of the Everglades.

Lake Okeechobee muck removal landmark


WEST PALM BEACH In only
six weeks, more than 1.9 million
cubic yards of phosphorus-rich
muck were scraped and trucked
off Lake Okeechobee's dried-
out shoreline, exposed for two
months by this year's drought. In
addition, 1,000 native pond apple
and cypress trees were planted
on the rim canal and spoil islands
near Clewiston, and 1,725 trees
were planted fear Moore Haven.
By adding native trees where they
once grew in abundance and
cleaning off the lake's naturally
sandy bottom, critical aquatic
habitats will be restored when
water levels return to normal.
"Lake Okeechobee is going
to be healthier as a result of this
work," said Carol Ann Wehle, Ex-
ecutive Director of the South Flor-
ida Water Management District.
"Although the drought and cur-
rent water shortage have brought
many difficult challenges, they


also provided a real opportunity
for environmental restoration in.
the lake."
Muck removal progress
Muck removal is complete at
two large sites around the perime-
ter of the southeast United States'
largest lake, an achievement
made possible by the prolonged
dry conditions. Work is conclud-
ing at several remaining sites, as
summer rains soaking the muck
are slowing the work and bring-
ing the project to a close.
A total of 134 heavy-equipment
vehicles have been dedicated to
muck removal, including 25 bull-
dozers, 56 off-road dump trucks
and 23 backhoes. Along the lake's
northwest shoreline, where a
total of five large sites are being
cleared, the following progress
has been made to date:

Eagle Bay Island: 350,000 cu-
bic yards removed; $1.8 million
invested
Fisheating Bay: 180,000 cubic
yards removed; $300,000 invested
Once the muck is removed
and lake levels return to nor-
mal, native plants such as tape
grass, spike rush, bulrush and
Kissimmee grass should rapidly
grow and thrive along the sandy
shoreline. These vegetated areas
are ideal spawning and nursery
grounds for sport fish, such as
bass and crappie, and are prime
habitat for apple snails, the prima-
ry food of the snail kite,.a federally
endangered, native hawk.
Project managers report that
some vegetation is already start-
ing to grow at the fishing pier in
Okeechobee. About 85 percent of
the new growth is desirable native
plants that can grow underwater;
about 15 percent is undesirable
exotics. The native vegetation is
expected to survive on moist soil
and continued rainfall until the
lake rises to normal levels. The
exotic grasses are likely to die as
they become submerged later this
summer.
Tree planting update
Pond apple forests once grew
on Lake Okeechobee's southern
shore and interior islands before
the trees were cleared a century
ago to create cropland. Lowwater
levels in the lake have provided an
opportunity to re-establish these
trees to help preserve the endan-
gered Okeechobee gourd habitat.
Also, by increasing the extent of
native trees-particularly pond ap-
ple, cypress and willow, wading
bird populations will benefit.

has taken place on Ritta Island, a
spoil island where farming was
abandoned in the mid-1970s. Dur-
ing the drought in 2001, trees were
planted and a berm removed from
the island's perimeter to enhance
natural water flow and restore
wetland habitat. With extremely
low lake levels during this year's
drought, access to Ritta Island has
been impaired.
This summer, tree planting ef-
forts were moved to the spoil is-
lands near Clewiston and along
the rim canal, to Moore Haven
Marsh and to the spoil islands in
Fisheating Bay. Project managers
report that 1,000 trees, each 4-8

"In a democracy, the highest office is that of citizens."
US Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter.

and a return of the values of the American Revolution.


How are we doing?

DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT
The Department of Environmental Protection gives Notice of its Intent to grant a solid
waste Construction/Operation Permit (No.0044768-003-SO/30) for the proposed
project as detailed in the application (No.0044768-003-SO/30) to the applicant,

County Manager, PO. Box 1018, Moore Haven, Florida 33471.
The Permit, when issued, will allow the Permittee to constructoperate:
a solid waste processing facility (transfer station), specifically identified as Glades
County Solid Waste Transfer Station, located at the Glades County Sanitary Land-
fill No. 2 Site, SR 78 N (1/4 mile north of SR 78, 6 miles west of US 27), Ortona,
Glades County, Florida.
The Department's file on this matter is available for public inspection during normal
business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Fnday, except legal holi-
days, at Florida Department of Environmental Protection, South District, 2295 Vic-
toria Avenue, Suite 364, Fort Myers, Florida.
The Department will issue the permit unless a timely petition for an administrative
hearing is filed under Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes, or all
parties reach a written agreement on mediation as an alternative remedy under
section 120.573 before the deadline for filing a petition,. i1" ."i ,i n,,.j,.,, 0ii
not adversely affect the right to a hearing, if mediation does no iresull in a settle-
ment The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set forth below, followed by
the procedures for pursuing mediation.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the above proposed agency
action may petition for an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the infor-
mation set forth below and must be filed (received) in the Department's Office of
General Counsel, Marjory Stoneman Douglas Building, 3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Petitions filed by
anypersons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3) of
the Florida Statutes must be filed within fourteen (14) days of publication of this
notice or receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first. The petitioner shall
mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the
time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition (or a request for media-
tion, as discussed below) within the appropriate time period shall constitute a
waiver of that person's right to request an administrative determination (hearing)
under Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes, or to intervene in this
proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention (in a pro-
ceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding
officer upon the filing of a motion In compliance with Rule 28-106.205 of the
Florida Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action is based
must contain the following information:
(a) The name, address, and telephone number of each petitioner, the applicant's
name and address, the Department File Number and the county in which the pro-
ject is proposed;
(b) A statement of how and when each petitioner received notice of the Depart-
ment's action or proposed action;
A statement of how each petitoner's substantial interests are or will be affected by
the Department's action or proposed action;
A statement of all material facts disputed by petitioner or a statement that there are
no disputed facts;
A statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including a statement of the specific facts
which the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the Department's
action or proposed action;
()A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require re-
versal or modification ofthe Department's action or proposed action; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action the
petitioner wants the Department to take with respect to the Department's action or
proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the material facts on which the Department's action
is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain
the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency
action, the filing of a petition means that the Department's final action may be dif-
ferent from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial Inter-
ests will be affected by any such final decision of the Department have the right to
petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements
set forth above.
In addition to requesting an administrative hearing, any petitioner may elect to pur-
sue mediation. The election may be accomplished by filing with the Department a
mediation agreement with all parties to the proceeding (i.e., the applicant, the De-
partment, and any person who has fled a timely and suicient petition for a hear-
ing). The agreement must contain all the information required by Rule 28-106.404
FA.C. The agreement must be received by the clerk in the Office of General Coun-
sel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Talla-
hassee, Florida 32399-3000, within ten (10) days after the deadline for filing a
petition, as set forth above. Choosing mediation will not adversely affect the right
to a hearing, if mediation does not result n a settlement.

the mediation;
(b) the name, address, and telephone number of the mediator selected by the par-
ties, or a provision of selecting a mediator within a specified time;

d) the agreement of the parties on the confidentiality of discussions and docu-
ments introduced during mediation;
(e) the date, time, and place of the first mediation session, or a deadline for holding

(I) the name of each party's representative who shall have authority to settle or rec-
ommend settlement;
(g) either an explanation of how the substantial interests of each mediating party will
be affected by the action or proposed action addressed in this action or a state-
ment clearly identifying the petition for hearing that each party has already filed,
and incorporating it by reference; and

SFWMD repairs hurricane-damaged canals


WEST PALM BEACH The
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD) recently
announced that four major proj-
ects are underway as part of a
multi-million dollar effort to re-
pair more than 30 miles of canal
damaged by Hurricane Wilma
in October 2005. The large-scale
infrastructure work is intended to
repair and restore canals in Palm
Beach, St Lucie, Highlands and
Glades counties and reinforce ca-
nal banks to help mitigate the po-
tential for future storm damage.
The SFWMD Governing Board
awarded four canal repair con-
tracts totaling more than $6.5


million at its February meeting,
including close to $1.25 million
to install turf reinforcement mats,
rubble riprap and sod along
20,300 linear feet of the C-24 ca-
nal bank in St Lucie County; more
than $1.97 million to install turf
reinforcement mats, berm drains,
rubble riprap and sod along
55,070 linear feet of the C-39A
and C-40 canals in Highlands and
Glades counties; more than $1.9
million to install turf reinforce-
ment, mats, berm drains, rubble
riprap and sod along 74,180 lin-
ear feet of the C-41 canal bank in
Highlands and Glades counties
and nearly $1.4 million to install


gabions and sod along 7,800 lin-
ear feet of the L-12 canal bank in
Palm Beach County. The U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture's Natural
Resources Conservation Service
is funding 75 percent of the cost
to repair the L-12 Canal.
"Our water infrastructure must
remain in good operating condi-
tion, and in light of new projec-
tions for an active hurricane sea-
son, it was critical that our agency
get these projects in motion as
quickly as possible," said SFWMD
Governing Board Chairman Eric
Buermann. "A speedy implemen-
tation of the prescribed repairs
will optimize the performance
of these canals and make them
more resilient in the face of future
storm events."
The SFWMD approved nearly
$1.5 million in fiscal year 2006
for canal repairs relating to Hur-
ricane Wilma. Including the four
repair projects announced recent-
ly, the District has also approved
more than $12.1 million to repair
hirricane-damaged canals this
year. The four repair projects are
scheduled for completion this
summer.,
South Florida's intricate wa-
ter management system was de-
Ssigned more than 60 years ago
on the premise that its popula-
tion would not exceed 1.4 million
people by the new millennium.


Today, following sound construc-
tion by the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers and decades of respon-
sible preventive maintenance by
the SFWMD, this system provides
flood protection for nearly 7 mil-
lion residents.
In addition, the SFWMD con-
tinuously clears and maintains all
lands 40 feet from the top of Dis-
trict canal banks. This preventa-
tive maintenance ensures that de-
bris and obstructions do not enter
the primary drainage system and
mitigates the potentially devastat-
ing impacts of hurricanes on the
canal system. Keeping these ca-
nals open and free of blockages
is paramount to making sure the
drainage system works for the cit-
izens who live in and around the
basins served by these canals.
Today, the District invests close
to $6 million annually on auto-
mation and telemetry systems
to manage more than 60 major
pump stations; double the num-
ber of stations operated with the
same number of staff a decade
ago. Additionally, the District in-
vests more than $14 million each
year to maintain water structures
at strict operating standards,
maintain more than 2,000 miles
of canals and levees and support
a sophisticated communication
systems.
