New official says he is
ready to get to work on
city business.
By JUSTIN LANG
flangPlakecityreportercom
Stephen M. Witt officially
became Mayor of Lake City
before more than 50 onlook-
ers at a swearing-in ceremony
in City Hall Wednesday.
With the standing-room-
only crowd squeezed into
council chambers, City
Council members Mike Lee,
John Robertson, Eugene
Jefferson and Vice Mayor
George Ward met as the city's
Canvassing Board to officially
certify Tuesday's election
results and name Witt as the
new Mayor of Lake City.
Joined by his wife, Jodi,
Witt was sworn in by City
Clerk Audrey Sikes and Ward,
who gave a short speech
beforehand.
Having acted as mayor for
the past three and half months
since the resignation of for-
mer Mayor Ray Kirkland,
Ward said despite the
unprecedented special elec-
tion and council being
.reduced to only four mem-
bers, the city has met all of its
deadlines, maintained project
schedules and "not skipped a
beat."
Ward also commended City
Manager Joe Cone as well as
all of the city's department
heads and staff for keeping
the city running smoothly,
including Sikes, who helped
administrate the special elec-
tion.
'We are swearing in a new
mayor today to take over the
helm of a good ship in solid
shape," Ward said.
Handing over the gavel and
head chair at the council table
to Witt, the new mayor settled
in to oversee the remainder of
the brief meeting. As he had
joked before, Ward returned
to his regular place on council
and "chair in the corner."
Witt thanked his wife, fami-
ly and voters for supporting

free health screenings and
medical information at Lake
City Medical Center's Health
and Fitness Fair Wednesday.
The event was held in the
entertainment building of the
Columbia County

Numer(jus health agencies
were.on hand to answer qUes-

Jennifer Thomas of
Ramadan Hand Institute pro-
vided information on treat-
ments available for disorders
including arthritis and Carpal
'Tunnel Syndrome.
"Most hand injuries can be
treated; people don't need to
live in pain," she said. I think
many people feel that experi-


encing pain is just a part of old
age, but there are ways it can
be treated."
The institute provides $50

LOCAL & STATE


DOT gets local input




on its long-range plan


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter. corn

Florida's long-range trans-
portation needs for the next
20 years were discussed dur-
ing a two-hour meeting
Wednesday.
Florida Department of
Transportation representa-
tives met with residents, busi-
ness owners and community
leaders at the DOT District II
office to hear what they felt
needed to be addressed as
the state plan begins to be
formulated.
"We thought it was impor-
tant in helping develop the
plan and helping the work of
the steering committee, to
get input from different areas
to make sure we're address-
ing the different, unique
types of issues of the differ-
ent regions," said Kathy
Neill, project coordinator for
the Florida Transportation
Plan 2025. "We want to get as
many ideas from as many
people as possible. The chal-
lenges facing Florida from a
transportation perspective


are fairly daunting we're a
high growth state, we've got a
growing economy and a large
tourism industry that's
great, but that puts a big
demand on our transporta-
tion system and how we deal
with those issues."
In the course of developing
the plan, a steering commit-
tee of 46 people representing
various transportation
modes, will devise a plan to
meet state and regional trans-
portation needs. That plan is
scheduled to be unveiled
Aug. 25 in Tampa at the DOT
Summit meeting.
Information from
Wednesday's meeting will be
reviewed and added to the
DOT Web site and could later
be incorporated into the draft
2025 Florida Transportation
Plan.
Funding needs, priority
lists, impact fees, environ-
mental planning and mainte-
nance and construction
needs for roads were
addressed during the meet-
ing.
Funding was a common


issue throughout the meet-
ing, as DOT officials
explained the amount of
money they receive from the
federal government. They
say they hope to get addition-
al money from the federal gas
tax over the next few years
because of the state's growth.
Officials also noted that
rural areas needed a better
funding source for their
roads, since the state's high
traffic, metropolitan areas
now get a lion's share of that
funding.
To offset that, many atten-
dees suggested impact fees,
tolls, improving the bidding
process and continuing to let
developers pay for new roads
to alleviate funding problems.
Meally Jenkins, Florida
Crown employer representa-
tive, attended the meeting
and said not only did she
learn a lot from the meeting,
she was able to add input to
the proposed plan.
"I liked the information
that was given, but the main
thing I like was that our input
was taken serious today," she


said. "I like the fact that we
are valuable resource for the
DOT."
During one of two break-
out sessions, Jenkins' group,
as well as two other groups,
discussed impact fees as a
way of funding future proj-
ects.
"I'm not for any impact fees
or any increases in taxes,"
she said. "But, I do under-
stand that will have to hap-
pen, but I'm not for it. For us
to grow, as fast as we're grow-
ing, we are going to need to
take care of those needs
whether it be with a tax or
whatever."
Neill said the 2025 Florida
Transportation Plan is study-
ing the long-range goals and
objectives for the entire state
transportation system,
including state roads, county
roads, air ports, mass transit
and railways.
"We update this plan once
every five years," she said.
"We update it based on new
trends and changes in the
state to try and keep it cur-
rent."

Great race


by both


candidates

Both candidates in the race for
Mayor of Lake City did them-
selves proud in the end. Both
Stephen Witt, who won the
mayor's seat, and Glenel
Bowden, who finished second, ran very
clean campaigns.
They both should be congratulated for
their efforts.
Both gave top-notch performances on
the street and in the neighborhoods as
they took their message to the people in
advertisements and through many person-
al appearances and door-knocking cam-
paigns.
Both represented themselves with class
and dignity and that is appreciated.
Witt took office at noon Wednesday after
a gentleman's campaign was settled by the.
voters Tuesday. Thirty-three percent of
voters turned out to.cast ballots and that is
a decent turnout, considering the time of
year and the fact that the mayor's race is
limited to a small population that lives
inside city limits and it was a special elec-
tion.
This was a highly competitive election
with two candidates with very specific
qualifications for the job.
Both kept their bids for the office very
professional and were a credit to politi-
cians everywhere.

day of 2005. There are 219 days left in the

sion in 1998 to get money.
Since our inception, we've
been trying to get money for
a community park and cen-
ter."
Bethlehem Community
Center Inc., has been togeth-
er since 1998 and one of their
primary focusing points has
been trying to get the park
established.
Brown said she was
extremely happy to hear of
the latest developments sur-
rounding the proposed park.
"I was so elated because it
was a long time waiting and of
course, we had gotten turned
down before," she said. 'The
county put in a grant request
before, but it was turned
down. I was very elated to
know that we were finally
pending approval for the
grant, though it can be vetoed
by the governor."
Brown said she was noti-
fied by Columbia County
Commission Chairwoman,


Jennifer Flinn, with the good
news about the grant funding.
To prepare for the pro-
posed park, the Bethlehem
Community Center Inc., will
hold a meeting to get public
input, 835 SW Bethlehem
Ave., Fort White.
The special meeting has
been scheduled for 7 p.m.
Thursday.
"We will be discussing
plans about the future park at
our special meeting," Brown
said. "Citizen's input will be
very helpful."
The park will be located at
the far south end of the coun-
ty, on the corner of Bellamy
Road and Bethlehem Avenue.
The site for the proposed
park sits on a five-acre trek of
land.
"Where they want to put
the park, it doesn't have any
facilities," Brown said. "We
have a grant for a ball field
with lighting, outside rest-
rooms, an outside storage


area and a paved parking lot."
However, The Bethlehem
Community Center has two
modular buildings on another
five-acre site, dubbed
Bethlehem Community
Center Complex A.
The site where the pro-
posed park will be is located
less than a mile from the cur-
rent Bethlehem Community
Center Complex A.
Brown said the park is very
much needed in the southern
end of the county.
"The south end of the coun-
ty has been left out of a lot of
things when it came to receiv-
ing roads, parks, etc...," she
said.
"We are in need of so
much. Maybe that's not inten-
tionally, but we do get left out.
That's why we were so elated
about the grant. It gave me
inspiration to keep working
hard for the community,
whether it be better roads,
parks or whatever."

Walking for the children


By ASHLEY CISNEROS
acisneros@lakecityreporter.com
Louis Figueroa has always
been a doer.
When a 10-year-old cancer
patient became angry and
depressed about his condi-
tion, Figueroa decided to
take a walk for him.
A very long walk.
Only 16, he left his home
in New Brunswick, N.J., and
ended up in San Francisco,
Calif., 60 days later.
Years later the former
marathoner set out again in
1996 for his brother Jimmy,
who died of AIDS.
As he is approaching 40,
he is walking his last walk -
this one for children.
Since Jan. 29, he has been
walking to raise awareness
and money for abused chil-
dren.
Figueroa stopped in Lake
City Wednesday as part of
"7,500 Miles for Children,
benefiting two national non-
profits, Justice for Children
and Promise to Protect.
He will be leaving for
Jacksonville today.
He has been featured on
Oprah and was the inspira-
tion for "Forrest Gump" by
his quote, "When I felt tired,


I slept,. When I got hungry, I
ate. When I had to go to the
bathroom, I went."
Figueroa says he is tried of
politicians not standing up
for children.
'They say children don't
vote, but do whales?" he said.
"When is the last time you
saw Moby Dick cast a ballot?
Never, but they are spoken
about more than children."
Figueroa hopes to raise
awareness about child abuse.
"In 34 states, a 'father,'
used loosely here, can abuse
his child and not face a day in
jail, but in 50 states, a man
who is driving under the
influence will serve at least
one token day of jail," he
said.
Figueroa works as a finan-
cial analyst in Arizona and
has two children of his own,
Steveland, 6, and Zyanya, 4.
He is inspired by them and
says the hardest part is being
away from them.
Figueroa says that every-
one has a a gift, but that the
secret is to find what it is and
better humanity.
He is motivated by a quote
from his good friend and
child's rights attorney
Andrew Vachss, "The world
has far more humanitarians

Until he competes his trip, "You just gotta take that

Educators get training to align curriculum

Service Center speaks at a 'Women in Business' luncheon
Wednesday. The luncheon is held the fourth Wednesday of


^^^ ;'. ,.








the month at the Quality Inn.


Business women


luncheon held


By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com

For local educators, the
2004-05 school year conclud-
ed less than a week ago, but
Wednesday morning, many
were back in school.
Secondary school educa-
tors from Columbia High
School, Fort White High
School and Richardson
Middle School attended the
first day of a five-day curricu-
lum alignment program
Wednesday. The training was
part of school reform,
through the Modern Red
SchoolHouse program.
The Modern Red
SchoolHouse is a compre-
hensive, capacity-building
school reform design that
makes standards-driven
instruction work for students
and teachers through the use
of data to inform instruction-
al and organizational deci-
sions.
"It's a five-day training
where we are working with
scope and sequence and
alignment of curriculum that
we will better serve our stu-
dents in the next coming


years," said Joann
Chamberlin, Columbia High
School principal. 'The bene-
fit of this program is student
achievement. We want to see
what we can do as a staff, and
all three staffs combined, so
that a student coming to
Columbia High School, Fort
White High School will
receive a quality and aligned
curriculum."
More than 250 educators
where .at the first day of the
training, where they focused
on scope and sequence of
the curriculum.
"We have a really lofty, but
important goal of creating a
districtwide scope and
sequence K-12 (plan)," said,
Marci Kozinn, Modern Red
SchoolHouse site manager
responsible for the imple-
mentation and design for
Columbia County Schools.
"The hope is, eventually, that
we get a K-12 comprehensive
scope and sequence fully
aligned with the Sunshine
State Standards, where each
grade level builds upon the
previous grade level and pre-
pares for the next."
The scope of the curricu-


lum refers to the topics that
are important to address and
the depth of addressing them
while the sequence aspect is
the order for doing the work.
Andrea Sukow, math coor-
dinator for metro Nashville
(Tennessee) public schools
and a Modern Red
SchoolHouse consultant, said
the teachers at the training
session were coming togeth-
er to work to develop a com-
mon understanding of how to
align the courses.
Ken Campbell, a Columbia
High School mathematics
teacher said, scope and
sequence was important
because it showed a connect-
ing track between classes
from different grades.
"I think the teachers need
have freedom in their class-
rooms to be able to teach
according to their styles, but
I think there are realistic
expectations that need to be
met," he said. "As students
are traveling through their
educational journey, they
have other modes of trans-
portation to connect with on
certain dates and years and
we need to see that they are


o* w mw bpam


prepared to do that."
Campbell said he believes
there will be a noticeable dif-
ference in the schools by the
fall because of the training.
"This will help to encour-
age teachers to realistically
look at those goals that there
is going to be an agreement
between faculty members
that this is where we all need
to be at a certain time," he
said.
Kozinn said the scope and
sequence idea is popular in
other states and the Modern
Red SchoolHouse is in more
than 20 states implementing
similar programs.
"We provide a lot of pro-
fessional development for a
lot of schools and a lot of
states and they've shown sig-
nificant growth," she said.
"It's exciting for me, person-
ally, because we're bringing
together a whole community.
Particularly a community
where there is some tran-
siency between the schools
- if it's important for an
eighth grader that goes to
Fort White, then it's impor-
tant for an eighth grader that
goes to Richardson."

he said.
After dismissing the meet-

SHOW
Continued From Page 1A

Columbia County Cattlemen's
Association and the Columbia
High School Future Farmer's
of America Alumni
Association, along with
numerous sponsors through-
out the community, which
includes various local busi-
nesses and organizations.
Art Graves, chairman of the
Show Committee for the
Cattlemen's Association, said
already 200 head of cattle are
already pre-registered with
125-200 more expected to reg-
ister on-site.
Graves said the contest
draws people from all over the
area, as well as many from
across Florida and some from
out-of-state. The show is open
to any 4-H or FFA member
from any chapter.
Following check-in from 12
p.m.-5 p.m. on Friday, the
event officially begins at 7 p.m.
with a beef brisket dinner for
all participants and their fami-
lies provided by the
Cattlemen's Association. The
dinner is immediately fol-
lowed by a kick-off of the
showmanship contest, which
is open to any participant and
divided into three age groups:
Junior (8-12), Intermediate
(13-15) and Senior (16-18).
The second day of the event
begins at 7 a.m. Saturday with
a breakfast provided by the
Cattlemen's Association for a
"nominal" fee. That is followed
at 8 a.m. by the judging of the
various classes of steer. The
steer classes are determined
by the animal's weight, while
the heifers, which begins
immediately after, are divided
by their breed and age.
For the steer show, first
place winners from each class
will be entered into a Grand
Champion contest that the
winner of will receive $150,
while second place winners
will be part of a Reserve
Champion contest paying out
$100 to the winner.
For the heifer portion of the
show, the Grand Champion
contest will also feature the
first place winners from each
class, but pays out $300. In the
Reserve Champion contest,
the pay out is $200 for the win-
ner.
But Graves said "this is one
show that nobody goes home
without getting something,"
even if its a complimentary
feed bucket.
"Nobody is a complete loser
in this thing, which we felt was
important," he said.
Also, all proceeds from the
show will go to the FFA for
scholarships and to help send
members to the organization's
national convention.
Graves said the show wraps
up Saturday late afternoon or
early evening, "when the last
class is judged."
He said having children par-
ticipate in 4-H and/or FFA and
showing animals, "if it's han-
dled properly, it's the best
thing in the world to prepare
children for later life."


"If you raise a pig or raise a
calf, it teaches you respect for
animals, it teaches you to keep
a checkbook," Graves said.
"All of the things you do as an
adult later in life, you are
going to have to do in a project
for a pig, or a goat, or whatev-


er."
People who are interested in
this weekend's show can con-
tact Ray Richards at

clubcalf.com on the Internet

Summer

brings new

events, fun
For those of you
(besides me)
who are jonesing
for sports in the
community now
that the high school season
is officially over, there are
several events that are
either under way or about
to start.
Youth baseball is enter-
ing All-Star season, with
various tournaments in the
upcoming months to keep
sports going in the county.
Fort White will host an
Invitational Tournament on
Friday- Sunday, with two
games at 5 and 8 p.m at the
South Columbia Sports
Park.
There will be four teams
in both the Minors and
Majors participating for
eight teams total.
Teams that are compet-
ing are from Live Oak,
Gilchrist County, Hamilton
County and Branford.
Fort White will also host
the small State B
Tournament for 10- and 12-
and-under teams June 23-
26.
In Lake City, the Rookie
State Qualfying
Tournament will be held
again at Southside Sports
Complex June 9-12.
Thirty-eight teams from
around the state will com-
pete for berths in the state
tournament in West Palm
Beach.
"That one went real well,"
Lake City/Columbia
County Babe Ruth Youth
Chapter President David
Davis said.
"We had a lot of positive
feedback about the fields
and the facilities."
Southside will also host
the Southeast Regional
tournament July 22-25, with
the winners moving on to
the World Series in every
class except Rookie, which
has no World Series.
This year the county has
added some improvements
to the facility.
"We had a net put up
over the bleachers and the
stands so if any balls go
over the fence no one will
get hurt," Davis said.
'We've also got some new
batting cages, new land-
scaping. We're hoping to
host this more than one
time. We hope to host the
World Series down the
road."
Lake City has already
hosted one softball tourna-
ment with the Slider
Slugfest last weekend, and
the ISA District
Championships will be at
Southside June 17-19.
Also, there will be vari-
ous camps for sports such
as volleyball, soccer and
basketball throughout the
summer. And American
Legion baseball tryouts
start this weekend, so sev-
eral former, current and
future Columbia High
Tigers and Fort White
Indians will hone their
skills during the summer
season as well.
So fear not, sports fans.
You can still get your local
fix at the various fields
across the county. And
more often than not, I'll
probably be there taking in
the sights as well and
maybe a hot dog or two.

Children learn to
swim at Columbia
Aquatic Complex
By MARIO SARMENTO
msarmento@lakecityreporter. com
Summer is here, which
means the Columbia Aquatic
Complex is once again a busy
place. Kids play volleyball on
the sand court beside the
pool, which itself is besieged
by a swarm of children. There
is also a throng of parents
watching from the various
lounge chairs spread out
across the deck.
This is the hectic season for
the lifeguards who monitor
the aquatic activities. Some
teach as many as four lessons
a day to children ages 3-and-
.up.
Monday. marked the begin-
ning of the second session of
swim lessons at the complex,
which are taught from 8-11
a.m. and continue at 5:15 and
6 p.m. This session ends on
June 3, with four more to fol-
low through July 22.
"So far they're pretty good,"
Aquatic Supervisor Drew
Sloan said. 'We had about 90
people sign up for the first ses-
sion. And usually, the first ses-
sion for summer is a little bit
slower because everybody's
going on vacation, everybody's
out of town. The second and
third session's usually pretty
crowded. So we encourage
everybody to sign up on the
days we have available to sign
up because we don't have early
or late registration."
Registration for the next
session from June 20-July 1 is
on June 15 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
at the complex and June 16
and 17 from 9 a.m.-7 p.m.

Columbia Aquatic Complex swim instructor Joanna Watson (left) leads 3-year-old Kylie Thomas
lesson on Wednesday.


Travis Russell is a third-
year lifeguard who is teaching
Level 2 classes and up this
year.
When asked what he
enjoyed so much about his
job, Russell said, "It's just the
satisfaction that I taught some
little kids something they did-
n't know before."
Russell estimated that there
have been as many as 100
kids in the pool on a daily
basis, and on Saturday that


total was up to 180.
Jessica Stalnaker is also in
her third year as a lifeguard at
the complex. She teaches
Level 1 and Level 2 classes.
"You have to have a lot of
patience with the younger
kids," she said. "Because you
have some 3-year-olds, 4-year-
olds. Five 3-year-olds can be a
handful sometimes, so I
would say patience."
The lessons are popular not
just in Columbia County, but


also with people in the sur-
rounding counties.
"They love them," Sloan
said.
"We have people coming
from all out of town too not
only from Lake City. We have
people coming from Macc-
lenny, High Springs, Lake
Butler, Suwannee County, and
parents love it. Because our
main goal here is to promote
safety and teach kids how to
swim."

People can also sign up for
private parties on weekends,
though Sloan said the pool is
booked for May and June and
calls must come well ahead of
the party date. There are also
water aerobics classes at noon
and 3 p.m. Monday, Wednes-
day and Friday. Lap swim-
ming is from 6-7:30 a.m. and
again from 1-8 p.m., which is
also when the pool is open to
the public. Family time is
from 5-8 p.m.

FWC announces tips for alligator safety


From staff reports

During the warm weather
days of late spring and early
summer, alligators in Florida
tend to be more active than at
other times of the year. .
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Commission offers
the following reminders to
help contact with alligators to
be safe and at a distance -
enjoyable.
Leave alligators
alone. State law prohibits peo-
ple from killing, harassing,
molesting or attempting to
move alligators. The potential
for being bitten or injured by a
provoked alligator is high.
Closely supervise
children when playing in or
around water. Never allow
small children to play by
themselves near water.
M Don't swim outside of
posted swimming areas or in
waters that might contain
large alligators.
Swim only during daylight
hours. Alligators most active-
ly feed at dusk, dawn or at
night.
Don't allow pets to
swim, exercise or drink in
waters not known to be free of
alligators or in designated
swimming areas with
humans.
Dogs suffer many more
attacks than humans, proba-
bly because dogs more close-
ly resemble natural prey
items of large alligators.
Alligators are more likely to
attack small animals than larg-
er ones.
M Never remove any
alligators from their natural

and Wildlife Commission is giving Floridians this summer


season.

habitat or accept one as a pet.
It is a violation of state law to
do so. Alligators do not
become tame in captivity and
handling even small ones may
result in bites,
Enjoy viewing and
photographing wild alligators.
Remember, they're an impor-
tant part of Florida's natural
history, as well as an integral
component of many freshwa-
ter ecosystems.
Seek immediate med-
ical attention if you are bitten
by an alligator.
Alligators harbor a very
infectious bacteria, and even
minor bites may require spe-
cial treatment.
Never feed or entice


FWC launches toll-free

number for gator nuisance


From staff reports

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Comm-
ission (FWC) has launched a
new toll-free telephone num-
ber to report nuisance alliga-
tors. That number is 1-866-
FWC-GATOR and should be
the primary telephone num-
ber for alligator complaints,
available to customers around
the clock.
Alligators have shared mar-
shes, swamps, rivers and lakes
with humans for many cen-
turies in the southeastern
United States and are found in
all of Florida's 67 counties.


There have been increased
interactions between alligators
and humans as more and
more people are seeking
homes on waterfront property.
The FWC annually receives
more than 15,000 alligator-
related complaints. The agen-
cy removes more than 5,000
alligators each year when the
reptiles pose a threat to
humans or their property.
There are many precaution-
ary measures people should
take to reduce the potential for
conflicts with alligators. To learn
more, download the "Living
with Alligators" brochure from
MyFWC. corn/alligator.


alligators it's dangerous
and illegal. Alligators over-
come their natural shyness
and become accustomed or
attracted to humans when
fed.
Inform others that feed-
ing alligators is a violation of
state law and that by feeding
alligators, people create prob-
lems for others who want to
use the water for recreational
purposes.
Dispose of fish scraps
in garbage cans at most boat
ramps or fish camps.
Although you are not inten-
tionally feeding alligators
when you dispose of fish
scraps in water, the end result
can be the same feeding.

at 7825 Baymeadows Way, Suite B-200,
Jacksonville, Florida 32256-7590. Any
written comments filed shall be made
available for public inspection. If written
comments received result in a significant
change in the proposed agency action,
the Department shall revise the proposed
permit and require, if applicable, another
Public Notice.
A person whose substantial interest are
affected by the proposed permitting de-
cision may petition for an administrative
proceeding (hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Stat-
utes (F.S.). The petition must contain the
information set forth below and must be
filed (received) in the Office of General
Counsel of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station
35, Tallahassee, Florida, 32399-3000.
Petitions filed by the permit applicant or
any of the parties listed below must be
filed within fourteen days of receipt of
this notice of intent, whichever occurs
first. Under Section 120.60(3), F.S.,
however, any person who asked the De-
partment for notice of the agency action
may file a petition within fourteen days


of receipt of that notice, regardless of the
d(late of publication. A petitioner shall
mail a copy of the petition to the appli-
cant at the address indicated above at the
time of filing. The failure of any person
to file a petition within the appropriate
time period shall constitute a waiver of
that person's right to request an adminis-
trative determination (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57 F.S., or to
intervene in this proceeding and partici-
pate as a party to it. Any subsequent in-
tervention will be only at the approval of
the presiding officer upon the filing of a
motion in the 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 infor-
inatioln:
(a) The name and address of each agen-
cy affected and each agency's file or


Legal

identification number if known;
(b) The name, address, and telephone
number of the petitioner, the name ad-
dress, and telephone number of the peti-
tioner's representative, if any, which
shall be the address for service purposes
during the course of the proceeding; and
an explanation of hoe the petitioner's
substantial on interest will be affected by
the agency determination;
(c)A statement of how and when peti-
tioner received notice of the agency ac-
tion or proposed action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of
material fact. If there are none, the peti-
tion must so indicate;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate
facts alleged, including the specific facts
the petitioner contends warrant reversal
or modification of the agency's proposed
action;
(f) A statement of the specific rules or
statutes the petitioner contends require
reversal or modification of the agency's
proposed action; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by
the petitioner, stating precisely the action
petitioner wishes the agency to take with
respect to the agency's proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the ma-
terial facts upon 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 proc-
ess is designed to formulate final agency
action, the filing of a petition means that
the Department's final action may be
different from the position taken by it in
this notice. Persons whose substantial in-
terest will be affected by any such final
decision of the Department on the appli-
cation have the right to petition to be-
come a party to the proceeding, in ac-
cordance with the requirements above.
The application is available for public
inspection during normal business hours,
8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through
Friday, except for legal holidays, at the
Department of Environmental Protec-
tion, Northeast District Office, 7825
