Rocket Attacks and IsraelBY DR. TODD BUCK First Baptist Church of ClewistonWhat should the Christian (not just American) response to the Middle East con ict be? First we must pray for peace -as with any nation. We know Israel was chosen by God from all the peoples of the world -and this climaxed in Jesus Christ, the Messiah. "The LORD your God has chosen you to be a people for his treasured possession, out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth" (Deut. 7:6). God also promised the disputed land from the time of Abraham onward. God said to Moses, "This is the land of which I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, I will give it to your offspring'" (Deut. 34:4). A problem arises because both the blessed status of the people and the privileged right to the land are conditional on Israel's keeping the covenant God made with her. God said to Israel, "If you will indeed obey my voice and keep my covenant, you shall be my treasured possession among all peoples" (Exodus 19:5). When Israel suffered in captivity in Babylon, Daniel prayed, "O Lord ... we have sinned and done wrong. ... To you, O Lord, belongs righteousness, but to us open shame ... to all Israel ... in all the lands to which you have driven them, because of the treachery that they have committed against you" (Daniel 9:4-7). Israel has no absolute divine right to the land of promise when she is breaking the covenant of promise. This does not mean that other nations have the right to molest or attack Israel. She still has human rights even if she has forfeited her divine right for a time. Israel as a whole today rejects her Messiah, Jesus Christ, God's Son. God promised that to Israel "a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace" (Isaiah 9:6-7). But with tears this Prince of Peace looked out over Jerusalem and said, "Would that you ... had known on this day the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes ... You did not know the time of your visitation" (Luke 19:42-44). When the builders rejected the Cornerstone, Jesus said, "The kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people producing its fruits" (Matt. 21:43). God has saving purposes for ethnic Israel (Rom. 11:25-26). But for now His people are at war with God in rejecting the gospel of His Son (Rom. 11:28). God has expanded His saving work to embrace all peoples (including Arabs in general, and even Palestinians) who will trust His Son and depend on His death and resurrection for salvation. "Is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles also? Yes, of Gentiles also, since God is one. He will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith" (Rom. 3:29-30). The Christian plea in the Middle East to Palestinians and Jews is: "Believe on the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved" (Acts 16:31). The future is bright -when both Jewish and Gentile followers of King Jesus inherit the earth (not just the land), without lifting sword or gun. Until then justice must rule. If readers would like to comment on an article or suggest an idea for one, feel free to email Dr. Buck at: toddbucksr@gmail. com.Community Christian EventsCLEWISTON The Red Barn Gospel Sing will be held at the Community Christian Church during the summer months.

SUMMER SPECIAL! Obituaries 5 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 31, 2014 BY PAT DOBBINS Florida Department Of HealthAccording to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), local transmission of chikungunya is now being reported in other countries in the Caribbean. Since the end of June 2014, the following Caribbean countries have reported cases of chikungunya: Anguilla, Antigua, British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Dominican Republic, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Guyana, Haiti, Martinique, Puerto Rico, Saint Barthelemy, Saint Kitts, Saint Lucia, Saint Martin (French), Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Saint Maarten (Dutch), Turks and Caicos Islands, U.S. Virgin Islands. Travelers who go to these islands in the Caribbean are at risk of getting chikungunya. In addition, travelers to Africa, Asia, and islands in the Indian Ocean and Western Paci c are also at risk, as the virus is present in many of these areas. The mosquito that carries chikungunya virus can bite during the day and night, both indoors and outdoors, and often lives around buildings in urban areas. The CDC recommends that anyone traveling to the Caribbean should protect themselves from mosquito bites. However, some people may be more likely to get chikungunya because of certain risk factors. Travelers in high-risk groups should discuss their travel plans with their health care provider. The high-risk groups include the following:  People who have arthritis  People with serious underlying medical conditions (such as high blood pressure, heart disease or diabetes)  People older than 65  Women who are late in their pregnancies, because of the risk to babies born at the time their mother is sick  Long-term travelers, including missionaries and humanitarian aid workers and people visiting friends and relatives  People who might have dif culty avoiding mosquito bites, such as those planning to spend a lot of time outdoors or staying in rooms without window screens or air conditioning. Chikungunya is an illness caused by a virus that spreads through mosquito bites. The most common symptoms of chikungunya are fever and joint pain. Other symptoms may include headache, muscle pain, joint swelling or rash. Chikungunya disease rarely results in death, but the symptoms can be severe and disabling. Most people who get sick feel better within a week. In some people, the joint pain may last for months or years. There is currently no vaccine or medicine to prevent chikungunya. The only way to prevent chikungunya is to prevent mosquito bites. Preventing bites can be dif cult but it is important, as anyone can get sick after just one bite. Follow these steps to reduce the chances of being bitten by mosquitoes during a trip. Prevent mosquito bites: Cover exposed skin by wearing long-sleeved shirts, long pants and hats. Use an appropriate insect repellent as directed. Higher percentages of active ingredient provide longer protection. Use products with the following active ingredients:  DEET -Products containing DEET include Off!, Cutter, Sawyer and Ultrathon  Picaridin -Cutter Advanced, Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus and Autan (outside the US)  Oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE) -Repel and Off! Botanicals  IR3535 -Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus Expedition and SkinSmart Always follow product directions and reapply as directed. If you are also using sunscreen, apply sunscreen rst and insect repellent second. Follow package directions when applying repellent on children. Avoid applying repellent to their hands, eyes, and mouth. Stay and sleep in screened or air conditioned rooms. Use a bed net if the area where you are sleeping is exposed to the outdoors. If you feel sick and think you may have chikungunya: Talk to a health care provider if you feel seriously ill, especially if you have a fever. Tell them about any of your travels. Get lots of rest and drink plenty of liquids. Avoid spreading the disease by preventing more mosquito bites. Chikungunya Fever: Message to Travelers Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 4.9 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.43/g Sunday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 8,237 gas outlets in Florida. This compares with the national average that has fallen 4.9 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.51/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 15.6 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 17.7 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 16.5 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 11.7 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. “The national average as of today has been on decline for a month straight,” said GasBuddy. com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “The drop in gas prices during the middle of the summer certainly has been welcome relief to families and individuals alike who are hitting the road during the peak of the summer driving season. The national average now stands at its lowest point since March of this year, and will likely drop under $3.50/gallon by mid-week. No states in the lower 48 feature average prices over $4/gal, and just 4.1 percent of all stations GasBuddy tracks stand over that level, which is a drop from 8.7 percent a month ago. In addition, a month ago, nearly 75 percent of gas stations were charging over $3.50/gal, while today we see just 38.2 percent of all stations over that levelan impressive decline in price that GasBuddy alerted motorists to weeks ago,” DeHaan said.

is 985 and they currently have 983 inmates with 157 employees. He stated they retained 90 percent of the employees from CCC who previously operated the facility and 58 percent of those had previously worked for GEO. He said to comply with all state requirements, certain services to the inmates had changed and he now uses vendors and providers instead of employees for some services.Consent Agenda All approved with minor corrections to the Minutes noting that Joe Collins is not a resident of Glades County and the address he had listed on the sign-up form was the address of his employer in Glades County.  Approve Payment of County Warrants  Approve the Minutes of the July 8, Regular Meeting  Approve the Minutes of the July 8, Budget WorkshopBusiness Agenda Appoint Citizen Member to the 2014 Value Adjustment Board Board appointed Jerry Peavey to serve with Commissioners Beck and Drake.  Adopt Current Year Proposed Millage Rate for BOCC and Law Enforcement MSTU and Schedule the Tentative and Final Budget Hearings. Board tentatively adopted ad valorem tax millage of 9.1367 for the BOCC and 2.45 for the MSTU for Law Enforcement. (The law enforcement MSTU does not fund all of the Sheriff’s budget, the remainder comes from the general fund of ad valorem tax revenue.) Board will hold Tentative Budget Hearing on September 8 at 5 p.m. and Final Budget Hearing on September 23 at 5 p.m.  Port LaBelle Utility System Shane Parker, PE, Hendry County Engineer addressed the Board requesting an increase of $12 per year for MSBU assessments on vacant lots in Port LaBelle to help fund needed repairs. Board approved the increase which will now total $36 per year. With 1,560 vacant lots, the increase will raise $15,120.  Capital Outlay City of Moore Haven Clerk Brown explained that $5,075 of one cent discretionary surtax revenue had been encumbered for the City of Moore Haven but there have been no requests for expenditures. Board granted her request to unencumber the money to be included in the one-cent fund balance.  Capital Outlay Community Development County Manager Carlisle explained that $112,688 of one cent discretionary surtax revenue had been encumbered for the remodeling of the community development building; the building is complete and the Board agreed to unencumber the money to be included in the one-cent fund balance.  Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers, Inc. Board moved to authorize Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers Inc. to act as its agent for the purpose of applying for and receiving monies from the Crime Stoppers Trust Fund per Florida Statutes.Constitutional Of cersSheriff Stuart Whiddon reported that he had law enforcement attorneys examine the county’s proposed noise control ordinance and their recommendation was to change the language of “county manager and his designee” and let the Sheriff’s of ce handle it. However, he had approached the State Attorney’s Of ce and they stated it was much like the state statute which had been ruled unconstitutional in criminalizing some noise. Whiddon stated the county needs to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding with the SAO. Sheriff stated he and Chief Deputy Pottorff discussed it and came up with the suggestion that instead of charging violators with a misdemeanor, change it to a civil infraction with citations and nes and the violator could appear/appeal before the Judge. He said he would need about six of the decibel meters at about $200 each. He said he would have his trainer become certi ed to operate it and train other deputies to use it. He stated that Lee County and City of Fort Myers are in the process of drawing up a noise ordinance and the SAO is watching that one closely as well. Sheriff Whiddon stated Glades Correctional Development Corp (GCDC) had agreed to hire a lobbyist from DC to pursue contracts for housing juvenile detainees in the county’s old jail facility. He said if successful, GCDC will lease the facility again as it did before and may require minor changes as rules for juveniles are different; for instance, teachers will have to be hired including those who speak Spanish. Whiddon stated ICE currently has just over 300 detainees in GCDC detention center at the jail. He said with that many, the operating costs are more than covered but the pro t is not enough to cover principal and interest payments to the bonding company.County Attorney/ County ManagerMr. Carlisle requested and was granted Board consensus to allow a state agency to administer CDBG to provide programs for citizens not now being utilized. Carlisle told the Board he would be gone September 17 through 21 to the International City-County Managers conference in Charlotte NC. Chairman Storter commented this was something agreed upon in his employment contract. He stated he has a contract on his house in Rock Hill SC and may be needing to make a quick trip up there to remove the rest of his personal belongings. Chairman Storter Long commented that after the groundbreaking luncheon a short meeting with Gov. Scott’s Director of Economic Opportunity led to the discussion of the County’s responsibility to administer the funding for the training center and the need for planning to meet deadlines. Commissioner Storter stated Mr. Carlisle would need to meet with stakeholders, employers, educators and planners to meet the goals. Mr. Carlisle stated that the County as the recipient of the funding, is ultimately responsible for the planning, construction, development, operation and management of the training center. He agreed to keep the Board informed as he gathers information. A facilitated planning session is scheduled to include regional employers and educators to determine the best direction to head in planning the project.Public Input on Non-Agenda ItemsDavid Alexander of Crescent Avenue addressed the Board saying he was being singled out for code enforcement about mowing needed on a lot he owns in Port LaBelle. He stated his was the only one cited and all the vacant lots out there are in the same condition. He asked the Board to have Code Enforcement withdraw the notice of violation since he was the only one charged because the owner of the home adjacent to his lot complained. Chairman Storter informed him that Code Enforcement would not be told to stop doing its job responding to complaints and citing violators. He showed pictures of the lot, which he has mowed, and pictures of other lots in the area, and a picture of the complainant’s lot which was not completely mowed but had high vegetative growth. He wanted to know if all the others were going to be cited by Code Enforcement. Chairman Storter Long told him if he wanted to le a complaint about them he could and Code Enforcement would be out there. She suggested he meet with County Manager Carlisle and the Code Enforcement ofcer, as this discussion was a non-agenda item and no Board action could or would be taken.Commissioners Items and CommentsCommissioner Stanley stated he did not like to quote newspapers but had read an article in the Okeechobee News about part of Fisheating Creek in Glades was to be sold for $50 million and inquired if Mr. Carlisle or Board members had heard of it. None had. Commissioner Stanley said he was glad to see that a cell tower was to be put in Buckhead Ridge as it was needed. Commissioner Echols commented on the cost of the study for the Fire MSBU and this Board should carefully consider spending $33,000 for something and not follow through with the ordinance. Commissioner Storter commented that the Board should have had the opportunity to review a draft of the proposed ordinance in a meeting prior to the Public Hearing as some of the issues could have been addressed and the ordinance revised but under the Sunshine Law the issues could not be discussed anywhere but at a meeting.

Commissioner Beck commented that the proposed MSBU ordinance was supposed to be for re but had morphed into a wide scope that would cast a net for other things. Commissioner Beck told the Board that the Tourism Development Council chairman [Hugo Geistman] and secretary [Chick Ghitter] had resigned due to health issues. He said he has spoken with Vice Chairman Ed Massey and they will be seeking more members, and he asked the Board to solicit more members for the Council as it determines how to spend the "bed tax" collected to support tourism. He commented on the Harney Pond Park project that is nearing completion and invited the Board members to visit it. He stated that FDOT would not be paving in Curry Island because the county had not acquired the additional property and the property was not acquired because the deed restrictions would not allow the traditional uses.AdjournThese agenda notes are prepared by Donna Storter who is solely responsible for their content and may not be in exact chronological order.

Moore Haven Elementary School jumped two grade levels this year, rising from a C to an A and both West Glades Elementary School and Pemayetv Emahakv Charter Middle School rose from a B to an A.

Both are located in the County's Industrial Park, located on the northwest corner of the intersection of U.S. 27 and State Road 78. Glades County Commission Chairman Donna Storter Long welcomed all and introduced special guests. State elected of cials and agency directors were recognized for their efforts in obtaining funding from the legislature and Chairman Storter Long especially thanked her fellow commissioners Paul Beck and Tim Stanley and County Manager Paul Carlisle for their willingness to go to Tallahassee and their effective efforts. Special guest Jesse Panuccio, Gov. Scott's director of Economic Opportunity, brie y addressed the crowd on his agency's participation, eagerness and willingness to help with the projects, including development of the training center. Senator Denise Grimsley, who formerly represented Glades County in the House of Representatives, commented on her determination to help Glades County from the rst visit she made here eight years ago, when Health Dept. Director Pat Dobbins led her on a tour of the then-decrepit facility that housed the Health Dept. Senator Grimsley expressed her delight in helping get the new medical center just east of this construction site that was funded by state grants. She assured the guests that she will continue to serve Glades County even though it is not in her senate district. Senator Bill Galvano addressed the crowd, noting his pleasure serving Glades County as its state senator and urged it to continue contacting him whenever help is needed. Representative Cary Pigman spoke of his gladness in assisting the process of procuring funding for both these projects and noted that Glades County is well represented in Tallahassee. Gina Reynolds, executive director of Florida Heartland Regional Economic Development Initiative, gave comments from Senator Negron, chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee. Senator Grimsley, Senator Galvano, Representative Pigman and Senator Negron were the key players in obtaining the funding through the legislature. Also instrumental in working with CAS Governmental Services in Tallahassee were Gina Reynolds and Commissioners Paul Beck and Tim Stanley, as well as County Manager Paul Carlisle. Also recognized were other elected Glades of cials in attendance, including Tax Collector Gail Jones, Moore Haven City Councilman John Ahern, Glades County School District Superintendent Scott Bass, and members of the Glades County Economic Development Council. Glades County Public Safety Director Bob Jones and Emergency Management Director Angie Colegrove were so pleased to participate in the event as they have worked for 18 years planning for this day when a new, modern, even futuristic Emergency Operations Center will commence construction. The current EOC is a small of ce in the courthouse. The new facility will provide room for training, electronic communications, storage for supplies needed during emergency events, as well as provide bays for re trucks and ambulances with area for the EMS station staff. According to Bob Jones, "This facility will serve the needs of Glades County for the next 50 to 60 years." Tommy Perry, president of Glades County Economic Development Council, was pleased to attend as EDC has been involved with the training center as part of their efforts to promote development of the logistics and manufacturing site near the training center. Mr. Perry commented, "The EDC is excited to see the training center break ground as it will provide training for companies seeking a highly educated workforce as well as providing specialized training for logistics and manufacturing employees. This facility will enhance EDC'S ability to compete and lure logistics and manufacturing companies to Glades County." Other guests included Fred Edman of Wright Construction, who is the contractor for the EOC building; Gary Ritter, of South Florida Water Management District who provided 90 percent of the material for the site work for the EOC; and Hendry County Commissioner Janet Taylor.

11 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 31, 2014 Ray Sullivan Sr. is turning 90, and his children are throwing him a party. But its no ordinary party. The festivities will be located at the South Bay Crossroads Center at 50 Levee Rd., South Bay, where Ray and his family will be receiving friends who want to congratulate the nonagenarian and share memories of life in the Glades. Please do not bring gifts. Only your memories and best wishes. Drop by on Saturday, August 2 between the hours of 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. and enjoy punch, hors d’ oeuvres and a lot of stories and memories shared among friends. Ray began making friends over 70 years ago coming to the Glades from Wauchula, Fla. after graduating from high school. He married Judy McCarson, the love of his life and spent the next 64 years with her. They had four children, Ray (Baby Ray) Sullivan Jr., Gail Rushing, Marion Primmer and Judy Ann Sullivan. Ray served his country during World War II as a sergeant in the Marine Corps. He served the community of South Bay as councilman and Mayor, and he served the people of the Glades through a variety of businesses: Sullivan’s Sunoco, The South Bay Variety Store, Wilson’s Superette and The Lunch Box -all in South Bay.

Ray’s birthday party is meant to serve as an opportunity for Glades folk to come together and celebrate one another in a place that everyone, at one time or another, called home. Topics of conversation might be: Did Willit’s Store really sell everything? Could Principal Oulette’s paddle be heard all over South Bay Elementary?

Waste ManagementArnold’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, animal care specialists Freddie Holecek and Angela Waldron, along with Waste Management Sr. District Manager Tony Bishop participated in the recent release of an array of rehabilitated animals to the Okeechobee wildlife habitat. Upon release of the three barn owls, two took ight directly to the trees and one found home on a fence post. The bobcat ran directly into the woods, showing immediate adaptation. The box turtle and blue heron were released into the land ll’s wetlands which will serve as a perfect habitat for the two animals. The bunnies were released at the newly planted pollinator garden and hopped away as soon as they were placed on solid ground. “The rehabilitated animals were a sight to see as they made the Land ll their new home,” said Bishop. “It is always a memorable experience to watch the wild animals adapt to their natural surroundings.” The Okeechobee Land ll, a 4,100-acre facility in rural Florida, continues to provide habitat for a variety of sensitive species, including the sand hill crane, gopher tortoise, eastern indigo snake and American alligator. More than 2,000 acres of the site are managed for wildlife and consist of restored marsh and forested wetland habitat. In addition to habitat enhancement projects, the Okeechobee Land ll also hosts elementary students and camps to teach them about environmental conservation. Waste Management Community Relations Manager Teresa Chandler, along with ATKINS Environmental Scientist Tiffany Crosby, also worked with South Elementary fourth grade students in the planting of 100 pine seedlings to enhance the wetland wildlife corridor at the Land ll. “Arnold’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Center congratulates Okeechobee Land ll on its Wildlife Habitat “Wildlife at Work” site,” said Sue Arnold, president of the center. “We have utilized the wildlife preserve on several occasions to release rehabilitated animals back into the wild, and we appreciate the preservation of these natural areas in Okeechobee County for their important habit and educational value.” In 2007, Waste Management pledged to preserve and restore 25,000 acres of wildlife habitat across North America. The company achieved this goal in 2010 and now has 28,000 acres. Waste Management also committed to have WHC certi ed programs at 100 or more of its facilities.. With the addition of this year’s certi cations, the company has surpassed this goal. “At Waste Management, our conservation goals are aggressive but achievable. Look at what we’ve accomplished in just a few years,” said President and CEO David Steiner. “The success of our WHC programs has driven us to work harder on developing long-term sustainability and conservation programs that provide a role of everyone in the community to pursue a common goal – making the planet a better place for future generations to enjoy.” Waste Management has been working closely with WHC since 2000. In 2008, the company was the rst recipient of the organization’s William W. Howard CEO Award recognizing the company’s efforts in conservation, education and outreach efforts.

The Department will issue the permit as drafted unless a timely petition for an administrative hearing is led under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, within fourteen days of receipt of notice. The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set forth below. A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department’s proposed permitting decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be led (received by the Clerk) in the Of ce of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida Administrative Code, a person may request an extension of the time for ling a petition for an administrative hearing. The request must be led (received by the Clerk) in the Of ce of General Counsel before the end of the time period for ling a petition for an administrative hearing. Petitions led by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must be led within fourteen days of publication of the notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs rst. Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, however, also allows that any person who has asked the Department in writing for notice of agency action may le a petition within fourteen days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publication. The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of ling. The failure of any person to le a petition or request for an extension of time within fourteen days of receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of that person’s right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding of cer upon the ling of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Florida Administrative Code. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department’s action is based must contain the following information, as indicated in Rule 28-106.201, Florida Administrative Code: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency’s le or identi cation number, if known; (b) The name, address, any e-mail address, any facsimile number, and telephone number of the petitioner, if the petitioner is not represented by an attorney or a quali ed representative; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner’s representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner’s substantial interests will be affected by the determination; (c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the Department’s decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the speci c facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modi cation of the Department’s proposed action; (f) A statement of the speci c rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modi cation of the Department’s proposed action, including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the speci c rules or statutes; and (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action petitioner wishes the Department to take with respect to the Department’s proposed action. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate nal agency action, the ling of a petition means that the Department’s nal action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such nal decision of the Department have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. Mediation under Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, is not available for this proceeding. 466503 CN 7/31/2014
