TALLAHASSEE Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is urging parents to
pay attention to a new recall on
some Thomas the Train toys.
The Consumer Product Safety
Commission in cooperation with
RC2 Corp., the toy importer an-
nounced the voluntary recall due
to a lead poisoning hazard. Par-
ents should take the recalled toys
away from their kids immediately.
Various Thomas & Friends Wood-
en Railway Toys contain lead in
the surface paint. Lead can be
toxic and cause illness if ingested
by young children. The recall
involves wooden vehicles, build-
ings and other train set compo-
nents. The front of the packaging
has the logo "Thomas & Friends
Wooden Railway" on the upper
left-hand corner. A manufacturing
code may be located on the bot-
tom of the product or inside the
battery cover. Toys marked with
codes containing "WJ" or "AZ"
are not included in this recall.
"Young children often put their
toys in their mouths so the pres-
ence of lepd in the paint is a seri-
ous thing," Bronson said. "I want
to help the CPSC get the word out
as quickly as possible."
There have been no reported
injuries from the product. About
a million and a half toys are in-
volved in the recall. The CPSC
says people who have the re,
called toys should contact RC2
Corp. for a replacement toy. The
company has a toll free number,

Office at the time of a fatal crash
that took the life of a 21-year-old
mother, Kristina Waddell and re-
sulted in serious injuries to two
other occupants of the vehicle.
According to court records,
Garnto, a convicted felon, was
helping HCSO build a case
against an alleged cocaine dealer
Juan Sanchez and an associate,
Marcus Dennis.
Garnto had an extensive arrest
record, including 41 arrests and
19 convictions when he began
working with the HCSO in 1997.
He was convicted in October
1997 of battery in Hendry County
and sentenced to 364 days in jail
with credit for 29 days served. It
was discovered that he had an
outstanding warrant from Palm
Beach County on a felony drug
charge, on which he was eventu-
ally found guilty. HCSO Lt. Susan
Sibbald requested he be allowed
to serve that time in Hendry

County because he was working
with the sheriff's office on special
projects. The request was ap-
proved.
When he was returned to the
Hendry County Jail, he was im-
mediately released, continuing
his work as a confidential infor-
mant.
On July 5, 1998, Garnto was
spending the holiday in Fort My-
ers with Marcus Dennis and two
women. He was attempting to set
up a meeting between Dennis and
a DEA Agent to purchase a half
kilo of cocaine. When it was sug-
gested that Garnto was in danger
from Sanchez, he left, driving the
same Ford vehicle he had been
using as an undercover agent for
the HCSO. While driving north
on San Carlos Boulevard, Garnto
crossed the center line and struck
a vehicle driven by Erik S. Hemer-
son. As a result of the crash Ms.
Waddell, a passenger in the Hem-
erson vehicle, was killed. Mr. He-
merson and another passenger,
Gary L. Wheeler Jr., both suffered
debilitating injuries.

He is anxious to get to work.
"I am excited with all the plans
I have for the City of Clewiston's
Recreation Department," said MrY
McCraine. "I am really proud to
say that this is one of the best jobs
I have ever had, he concluded
saying."

limit.
Just as the deputy was about
to give the man a warning and
order him to remove the tints, he
reportedly smelled a strong smell
of alcohol.
An open bottle of Heineken
beer was lying next to the driver
inside of a small, brown paper
bag, according to the report.
The suspect claimed that the
beer belonged to a female friend
that he had dropped off moments
earlier.
The driver was asked to exit
the vehicle, and for permission
for a search of the vehicle.
According to the sheriff's of-
fice, the suspect said, "Go ahead
and search it, there is nothing in
there."
Deputies found a large amount
of what later proved positive for
the presence of Ecstasy in the ve-
hide. The illegal substance was
reportedly concealed in the car.
Joe McCray, 37, of Lope4
Street in Clewiston was charged
with first degree felony traffick-
ing in Phenethylamines (Ecstasy)
10 grams or more, third degree
felony paraphernalia (used to
transport drugs) and first degree
misdemeanor possession of para-
phernalia, and was later trans-
ported to the Hendry County Jail
awaiting trial with bond was set
at $50,000.

Rec Department gears up


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - When Robert
McCraine was recently promot-
ed to recreation department su-
pervisor for the city of Clewiston,
he was very excited.
After being employed as a
grounds keeper for the city for
less than a year, Mr. McCraine
stepped up to the plate and took
charge of the facility a slew of
ideas he would like to imple-
ment.


As one of his first duties, he is
now overseeing this year's sum-
mer camp program.
"Being that this is the first year
handling the summer camp, and
being my first year supervising it,
it has run pretty smoothly," ex-
plained Mr. McCraine.
This year 135 children signed
up for the summer camp "keep-
ing me very busy," Mr. McCraine
said jokingly.
Though he had gotten used to
working hard in his old position,


Mr. McCraine is having to learn
the ropes all over again now that
he has more responsibilities.
"With this new position, I'm
having to wear a lot of hats" said
Mr. McCraine. "It's more than
what I expected. But of course,
I can handle it, I learn something
new everyday," Mr. McCraine.
Almost immediately, Mr. Mc-
Craine is focused on upgrading
existing park facilities to "bring
them back to life," he said. The

Safari Tan open it doors


Former military
man opens shop
By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - After serv-
ing for 13 years in the United
States Marines as a sniper, Ju-
lian Jaramillo III, in partnership
with his sister, Rose Tamez,
have opened a tanning salon in
Clewiston.
Mr. Jaramillo still serves as
a drill instructor for a private
contracting company in West
Africa - which was the inspira-
tion for the name of the salon:
Safari Tan.
His experience there contin-


ues to inspire him even now.
When he returned from his
stay there, Mr. Jaramillo and his
sister hit on the idea of opening
the tanning salon. His sister, a
long-time Clewiston resident,
who works for the Seminole
Tribe of Florida, understood the
desires of local residents for a
quality salon. When the oppor-
tunity presented itself, the two
got to work.
They both have put a lot of
hours and hard work into learn-
ing the ins and outs of the busi-
ness, running a modern tanning
salon isn't a simple task..
The business offers the new-
est in tanning products, with
name brands like Fiji, Nano X,


Emerald Bay and Tinglers. The
salon is equipped with two
tanning beds and one tanning
booth.
For a quick refresher after a
tan, the business also offers pri-
vate showers for use with de-
signer body washes, perfumes,
colognes and body sprays. Re-
freshments are also for sale.
Both Mr. Jaramillo and Mrs.
Tamez say they are shooting to
become one of the best if not
the best tanning salon in all the
lake area, providing the best tan
to their clients as well as main-
tain a safari spa atmosphere for
their customers.
Although they just started,

bringing it up to code, is one of
those projects.
Another big project is the
renovation of the city's swim-
ming pool. Mr. McCraine said
residents can expect a "major
facelift" to be 'completed by
summer's end.
His work is being supported
by the city manager and every-
one else at city hall, the new su-
pervisor said.
Mr. McCraine is taking stock
of all the facilities the city can


take advantage of in providing
more recreational outlets for
residents, and has also focused
his attention on the performing
arts center - something he'd like
to see expanded.
But he isn't ready to call ita
day when summer ends. ..
"I really want to focus on yeaT
round activities for children and
adults," Mr. McCraine said. I
want to add fun and educational
activities that children can enj oy

Illegal window

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - A routine
traffic stop on Monday, June
18, for car windows windows
allegedly a few shades darker
.than the legal limit, yielded
much more for the Hendry
County Sheriff's Office.
According. to information
provided by the agency, depu-
ties arrested.a man suspected
of dealing in the trafficking of


the drug Ecstasy.
An investigator first spotted
the truck driving through Aztec
Avenue in Clewiston when he
stopped the man for what he
believed were illegal tints on
the vehicle.
The dark shade of the win-
dows, according to the deputy
was so dark he could "barely
make out the outline of the
driver's upper body."
The deputy stopped the ve-
hicle further down the way, on
Lopez Street. When he tested
the opacity of the window, the
deputy found that the shade
was much darker than the legal

Jury finds


HC SO negligent


By Patty Brant
INI Florida
In a lawsuit against Ronnie
Lee and the Hendry County
Sheirff's Office stemming from
the death of a 21-year-old Fort
Myers woman in 1998 a jury
found that:
* Sheriff Ronnie Lee and
the Hendry County Sheriff's
Office was negligent in hiring
or retaining Terry Garnto in an
undercover capacity and that
negligence was a legal cause
of the traffic crash that took the
life of Kristina Waddell on July
5, 1998.
* The Hendry County Sher-
iff was negligent in the release
of Terry Garnto from incarcera-
tion on May 26, 1998, which
was a legal cause of the crash;
however,


* Terry Garnto was not in
the course and scope of his
employment or agency with
Sheriff Lee at the time of the
crash;
* The sheriff was not negli-
gent in failing to suprrvise Terry
Garnto at the time of the crash.
The verdict came on May 18
of this year.
Circuit Court Judge Kyle has
not yet determined any amount
of damages and the sheriff's
department has filed a motion
for another trial.
The case goes back to 1998.
when the Hendry County Sher-
iff's Office signed Terry Lynn,
Garnto on as a confidential in-
formant.
The civil lawsuit alleged that
Garnto was acting as a paid

Effects of drought widespread -r Tropi-eai
Effects of drought wi~despread Cafez Tro'pical


By: Lorna Jablonski
INI Florida
The U.S. Drought Monitor
has South Florida rated from
"moderate drought" to "extreme
drought". Last year was the third
driest on record for the entire
state. As the drought continued
into 2007, Lake Okeechobee hit
a record low of 8.89 feet on May
31.
The effects of the continu-
ing drought in Florida are wide-
spread. Water restrictions are in
place across the region. Pastures
are not growing. Large animal
owners have been forced to sup-
plement their animals' feed with
greater amounts of hay to make
up for the dormant pastures. Un-
fortunately, droughts in the Mid-
west have already affected the
production of hay nationwide
and it is almost impossible to buy
common coastal hay locally, forc-
ing owners to scramble to find
alternative food sources for their
stock.
Even if farmers begin to bale
hay, the majority of it is already
spoken for. So, local feed stores
do not see any relief in sight.
The drought is also affecting
fish and wildlife. According to
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
officials, there are both positive
and negative effects for the state's
wildlife during this crisis.
"Short-term droughts probably
are more beneficial to freshwater
fish and their habitat than they
are harmful," said Fred Cross, re-
gional freshwater fisheries biolo-
gist in the FWC's regional office
in Panama City. "The drought ex-
poses lake bottoms and dries up
the muck that has accumulated.
Desirable vegetation expands
into deepwater portions of lakes
and rivers, and seeds germinate
on exposed lake bottoms. The
downside to this is that invasive
and exotic plants like hydrilla
will also make their way into
the deeper water. Droughts also
provide the opportunity to use
prescribed burning to reduce
vegetation in the wetlands, cre-
ating open water habitat which
helps water quality and reduces
the potential for wildfires," stated
Mr. Cross.
"Droughts can increase the
effectiveness of planned habi-
tat enhancement projects," said
Dale Jones,. section leader for
the FWC's Division of Freshwater
Fisheries Management.
On the downside, droughts
can reduce the aquifer level, al-
lowing sink holes to form and


Okeechobee News/Lorna Jablonski
Alligators are on the move in search of water as the drought continues. According to FWC per-
sonnel, they have not become more aggressive. They are simply looking for food and water.


Many different types of wildlife have been affected by the
drought. Animals that usually stay clear of humans are com-
ing closer to civilization looking for food and water. This little
rabbit was rescued by a good-hearted human after being
separated from its mother.


drain lakes. Salinity intrusion may
stress fish. Low water levels can
trap fish, resulting in fish kills
from low dissolved oxygen.
As the water levels drop, boat-
ers should exercise extreme cau-
tion to prevent striking underwa-
ter objects or even the bottom.
Many boat ramps are not usable
due to falling water levels. The
ramps are actually out of the wa-
ter and steep drop-offs and the
end of the ramps can damage
boats and trailers.
Wildlife are suffering from the
lack of water.


"Droughts can be stressful on
most aquatic wildlife, including
alligators," stated Allan Wood-
ward, research administrator at
the FWC's Gainesville Wildlife
Research Lab.
Even though the water re-
cedes, alligators do fairly well be-
cause of the fish, turtles and birds
that become trapped in dry areas.
But, there is also the threat of in-
creased cannibalism.
"Under prolonged droughts,
such as the one we are now ex-
periencing, alligators may be
forced to move in search of water.


Traveling over dry land can cause
increased mortality from motor
vehicles, as well as dehydration.
Smaller alligators may fall prey to
predators during these searches
for water," said Woodward.
Increased movement results
in an increase in nuisance alliga-
tor complaints.
"We have found that there
is no increase in the number
of attacks on humans during
droughts," stated Woodward.
"When moving over dry land, al-
ligators are awkward and out of
their element. They merely want
to find water, which provides
them with security and food."
Hunters are already being
warned of smaller and fewer
yearling deer this fall due to the
droughts.
"This drought has made life
more difficult on these fawns and
their mothers that need extra wa-
ter in their diets while nursing,"
said Scott Johns, district biolo-
gist from the FWC's Olustee Field
Office. "The tips and shoots of
growing plants are a large part of
deer diets during the spring and
summer. This is a favorite deer
food, and without the protein
from these plants, fawn growth
will be delayed and even antler
development in bucks could be
stunted this year."

New lake regulation schedule set


By Pete Gawda
INI Florida
There is some relief in sight for
those who .have been complain-
ing of large releases of lake water
to the estuaries.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers (COE) recently announced
that a new regulation schedule
for Lake Okeechobee will soon
go into effect that addresses this
problem.
Because the present sched-
ule, known as WSE (Water Sup-
ply and Environment), is not
suited to handle persistent high
lake levels like we have had in
recent years and also because of
seepage problems in the Herbert
Hoover Dike, a study was initiated
last year to revise the regulation
schedule.
According to Pete Milam, COE
project manager, under the new
schedule the lake will be man-
aged a foot lower. The extreme


ranges under the WSE are 9.4 feet
to 18.5 feet. Under the proposed
schedule the extremes will be-
tween 8.7 feet and 17.3 feet.
Mr. Milam said one of the goals
of the new schedule was a health-
ier lake. Lower lake levels are bet-
ter for the environment. He said
there was also concern in recent
years about the safety of the Her-
bert Hoover Dike. Therefore, the
decision was made to maintain
the lake at a lower level.
The new system will allow wa-
ter mangers to discharge smaller
amounts of water more often
to the estuaries. Discharges will
be made earlier than under the
present system and in smaller
amounts. This will help the salin-
ity level. Mr. Milan said the Caloo-
sahatchee River needs small re-
leases of fresh water in dry times
to maintain salinity levels.
One of the complaints against
WSE has been that too much ex-
cess water is sent east and west to


the estuaries.
Under WSE the lake would
reach a higher level before water
was released and more water was
released to the estuaries.
However, in extremely wet
years it might still be necessary to
dump excess water into the estu-
aries.
The problem was to balance
the need for lower lake levels
while maintaining water sup-
plies.
"The WSE did not give us
the flexibility to make the right
management decision when wa-
ter levels were too high," said
Colonel Paul Grosskruger, com-
mander of the Jacksonville Dis-
trict of COE in a press release. "To
achieve lower lake water levels,
we had to regularly deviate from
the approved WSE schedule. The
decision paths provided in a new,
approved regulation schedule
should enable us to make deci-
sions to better manage water


levels in and discharges from the
lake. That is why we developed
the new schedule."'
The proposed schedule is de-
signed,to be an interim schedule.
Mr. Milam said the schedule will
be in place only until 2010. By
that time, plans call for more wa-
ter storage areas to the south. The
additional storage will allow the
schedule to be revised to allow
for some excess water to be sent
south of the lake, relieving the
pressure on the estuaries.
There will be four regional
public meetings before the plan is
put into place. One of those meet-
ings will be held in Okeechobee.
Allowing for the required
amount of time for public review,
the revised schedule should be in
place by November.

Everglades construction



causes traffic delays E


PALM BEACH - Beginning
July 16, construction on the Ev-
erglades Agricultural Area (EAA)
Reservoir is expected to cause
travel delays along a seven mile
stretch of U.S. 27 in Palm Beach
'County, about 15 miles south of
South Bay. Drivers are encouraged
to use alternate routes including
1-595, 1-95, the Florida Turnpike,
S.R. 80 and 1-75 while the con-
struction continues over the next
six months (click here for map of
alternative routes)
Engineers and explosives tech-
nicians will begin blasting through
seven feet of rock and soil layers
within 150 feet of the highway's
western edge to create a seep-
age canal that will surround the
planned reservoir. For safety rea-
sons, all four lanes of U.S. 27 will
be closed during blasting. Experts
in electronic detonation plan to


set off charges Mondays through
Friday with road closures ex-
pected each day from 11 a.m. to
2 p.m. Construction will continue
-for at least six months.
Alternate routes will be iden-
tified on Florida Department of
Transportation signs posted in
South Bay on U.S. 27, Belle Glade
on S.R. 872 (heading South) and
at the intersection of Interstate 75
and U.S. 27, north of Alligator Al-
ley.
The EAA Reservoir is an Ev-
erglades restoration project of
the South Florida Water Manage-
ment District. With a capacity of
190,000 acre-feet or 62 billion
gallons, the aboveground res-
ervoir will store water released
from Lake Okeechobee, reduce
harmful freshwater discharges
to coastal estuaries and capture
stormwater runoff from the Ever-


glades Agricultural Area.
When finished, the canal will
capture groundwater that natural-
ly seeps from the reservoir, lessen-
ing any impacts the water could
have on the surrounding area.
For up-to-date traveler infor-
mation, drivers can call the Flor-
ida Department of Transporta-
tion at 511, or visit the website at
http://www.pbfdot.com . For fact
sheet on the EAA Reservoir blast-
ing project click here.
Alternate traffic routes:
Northbound drivers in Bro-
ward County can take 1-595 East
to S.R. 7/S.R. 441 or take 1-595
West to Interstate 75. Other routes
are the Florida Turnpike or Inter-
state 95.
Southbound drivers in Palm
Beach County can use S.R. 80
East to S.R. 7/S.R. 441, the Florida
Turnpike of 1-95.

Florida community colleges celebrate 50 years


TALLAHASSEE - This
month, Florida's Community Col-
lege System celebrated its 50th
anniversary. Since 1957, the Com-
munity College System has been
providing Floridians increased ac-
cess to postsecondary education
and workforce training opportu-
nities. A celebration commemo-
rating this impressive milestone
was held earlier this month and
attended by Lt. Governor Jeff Kott-
kamp, an Edison Community Col-
lege alumnus, among others.
"Governor Crist and I congratu-
late Florida's Community College
System on 50 years of excellence
in education," said Lt. Governor
Kottkamp. "As a graduate of one of
Florida's outstanding community


colleges, I experienced firsthand
the world-class academic pro-
grams that support and strength-
en Florida's economic growth
and development by expanding
access to higher education, pre-
paring students to enter the state
university system and providing
workforce education programs to
meet the evolving needs of local
communities."
During the past 50 years, Flor-
ida's Community College System
has made a number of notable
accomplishments. Some high-
lights of these accomplishments
include:
* Increased access to postsec-
ondary education, in particular for
underserved populations.


* Continued expansion of four-
year degree programs and work-
force education opportunities.
* Development of on-campus
partnerships with traditional four-
year colleges and universities.
* Creation of partnerships with
major business organizations.
* Development of bachelor's
degrees targeted to high-demand,
critical-shortage areas in Florida's
workforce.
"Florida's community colleges
are proud to be the major point of
entry to higher education in the
state for over 800,000 students
each year," said Community Col-
leges Chancellor David Armstrong.
"Thanks to the support of our
state's leaders and the Legislature,


record funding increases (more
than 41 percent) over the past 10
years are providing increased ac-
cess, and a passport to the Ameri-
can Dream for students who need
to get a high-quality, affordable
education- close to home."
Making postsecondary oppor-
tunities even more accessible for
those pursuing higher education
is an important goal for commu-
nity colleges. Florida's Commu-
nity College System will continue
its focus on this goal by:
* Increasing first-rate technol-
ogy and distance learning options.
Florida's community colleges cur-
rently offer nearly 14,000 distance
learning courses and this number
will continue to grow.


American Education Services launches new student


HARRISBURG, PA -- Ameri-
can Education Services (AES)
has launched a unique student
loan rebate program that benefits
student loan borrowers as they
repay their AES-serviced student
loans.
StudentLoanRebates.com
is a unique network of programs
and merchants offering more
rebate choices than the typical
single rebate program. AES has
teamed with some of the best re-
wards programs around, includ-
ing Upromise, the largest college
savings rewards program, Grad
Gold and Jellyfish, to help stu-
dent loan borrowers earn rebates
while shopping. These rebates
are then applied to the borrow-
er's AES-serviced student loan
balance, allowing them to repay
their loan faster.


"No other major rebate pro-
gram brings all the big players
into one convenient location,"
said Dick Willey, AES President
and CEO. "StudentLoanRe-
bates.com brings multiple busi-
ness partners together, specializ-
ing in different areas of shopping,
making it possible for members
to benefit without changing their
shopping habits to maximize
their student loan rebate poten-
tial. Participants can repay their
student loans faster, saving mon-
ey, without costing them anything
extra."
Borrowers with AES-serviced
student loans can create their free
account at www.StudentLoan-
Rebates.com.
In 2002, AES teamed up with
Upromise allowing its members
to apply their Upromise rewards


to borrower's AES-serviced loan
balances. "We wanted to build
upon the success of this program
and provide even more opportu-
nities for our borrowers to earn
money back to help pay for their
education," explained Willey.
"StudentLoanRebates.com is
the perfect solution, something
for everyone."
Little Grad, Inc. has part-
nered with AES to create a new
brand, Grad Gold, allowing mem-
bers to earn rebates at more than
1,700 online merchants at the
Grad Gold online mall.
Jellyfish.com offers an in-
novative rewards program where
members initiate the purchase of
an item that they're looking for
and merchants bid for the pur-
chase. The purchase savings can
be applied to the borrower's stu-


dent loan balance.
AES expects to add more part-
ners and merchants to the pro-
gram, providing increased access
to rebate programs and rebate
choices, all from one convenient
website.
American Education Ser-
vices (AES) is among the na-
tion's leading providers of stu-
dent financial aid services. Each
year, AES serves millions of stu-
dents and thousands of schools
through its loan guaranty, servic-
ing, and financial aid processing
systems. As a nonprofit enter-
prise with $94 billion in assets un-
der management (1/31/07), AES
channels its earnings into a wide
array of public service programs
and initiatives that help ease the
financial burden of higher educa-
tion.


New Pioneers: Capitalizing on emerging economies


Culminating six months of
interactive workshops and semi-
nars, 20 graduates of the inau-
gural leadership class of Glades/
Hendry County Economic Devel-
opment Council received their
diploma June 16 at the Clewiston
Country Club with more than one
hundred guests in attendance.
Janice Groves, Hendry EDC
Executive Director and Emcee
Dan Regelski, Director of the
Small Business Development
Center at Florida Gulf Coast Uni-
versity, congratulated the gradu-
ates and encouraged them to
take the foreground in leadership
for the community.
Kevin Thomas of CHL and
EDC Board Member introduced
each graduate and highlighted
the accomplishments that quali-
fied them as selected participants
in the program who plan to move
forward with individual goals and
objectives to accomplish over the
coming year.
The keynote address was pre-
sented by Glades County author,
Nancy Dale, Ph.D. with a message
to "The New Pioneers: Capitaliz-
ing on the Emerging Economies
in Glades/Hendry Counties.
"Moving forward into a vision
of the future often means look-
ing back from where we started,"
said Ms. Dale talking about the
two hundred year cultural heri-
tage of the Florida pioneer "cow
hunters" who settled Florida in
the 1800s and thosethat came
before dating back to the Paleo-
indians, and later Ponce de Leon
in the 1500s who named Florida,
"the land of flowers.
"With a state population to-
day of 18 million, up more than
300,000 since last year, we are
not going to stop growth; how-
ever, we do need to manage
it and attract the urban dollars
into Glades/Hendry Counties for
more jobs, an expanded tax base,
and career opportunities for our
youth."
The emerging economies are
based on what Ms.. Dale termed
a triangulation of nature-based/
cultural heritage tourism; new
green - communities incorporat-
ing agriculture and habitat; and
an educational consortium for
the development of 21st century
sustainable "green industry"
technologies that provide career
opportunities and economic spin
offs for local businesses.
In the arena of renewable en-
ergy, Dr. Dale cited the examples
of "Alico, Inc. in LaBelle investi-
gating a cellulosic ethanol project
using a $13 million grant from
the Department of Energy, and
Citrus Energy, LLC in Clewiston
planning to construct a 4 million
gallon per year ethanol bio-refin-
ery using citrus waste projected
to produce 80 million gallons of
ethanol a year."
Dr. Dale referenced state and
national research regarding the
fast growing emerging multi-bil-
lion dollar economies that can be
marketed and capitalized upon in
Glades/Hendry Counties, empha-
sizing "first what we already have
here in this last vast, valuable land
in Florida, our nature-based and
cultural heritage tourism. More
than 78.6 million people visit
Florida every year with an impact
of $57 billion dollars on the state


economy; 189 million Americans
hike, trek or travel into wilderness
areas, or 94.5% of the population.
Regionally, nature-based and cul-
tural heritage tourism increased
nearby county coffers, such as
Charlotte Harbor watershed with
more than $3.2 billion a year into
the area and $1.8 billion a year
to Florida. Glades/Hendry Coun-
ties needs to attract dollars to our
pristine wilderness and cultural
heritage sites, the later which
additionally draws to the region
'more than 200,000 people."
Ms. Dale said that Glades and
Hendry Counties need to cultivate
regionally a marketing image to
attract more of the urban tourist
dollar. She said that beaches and
condos are "a dime a dozen" but
that Glades and Hendry Counties
"provide a unique pristine wilder-
ness and heritage that is unique,
like no other place in the world.
It is a refuge from the pollution,
traffic, stress and by-products of
the city. People are paying to es-
cape."
"Incubating and capitalizing
on new economies means cross-
ing the chasm into creating highly
valuable and sustainable use of
the areas most valuable asset:
Land," said Ms. Dale'. "Growth
means not only marketing nature-
based-cultural heritage tourism,
but the triangulation of the $12
billion 'green industry' in collabo-
ration with educational consor-
tiums such as Florida Gulf Coast
University and Edison College to
develop affordable 'green' hous-
ing in collaboration with the Flori-
da Green Builders Association"
Pointing to a planned new
"green" community in rural Cal-
houn County, "Sky Project," was
recently awarded $1.8 million by
Governor Crist along with Florida
State University's Advanced Pow-
er Systems and consortium to pay
for geothermal and'solar energy
applications in the 624 home sites
on 571 acres in Crestview about
one hour from Tallahassee.
The new community will ded-
icate half of the development to
agriculture to bring back the rural
centerpiece of the farmers market
providing opportunities for home
owners as small farmers and the
opportunity to contribute to the
$14 billion organic market.
Presently, there are 77 green
markets in cities across Florida.
Ms. Dale said that, "With agri-
culture in Hendry/Glades County
having a long-time economic
presence, Hendry County's mar-
ket value of crops is more than
$375,000 contributing to the $87
billion agricultural industry, it
is vital lifeblood in Florida." Ed
Kuester of the office of the Florida
Commissioner of Agriculture said
that Florida's "rural land base has
experienced a five-fold increase
in urban conversion from 1964 to
1997. This increase in urban land
use resulted in the loss of nearly
5 million acres of valuable agri-
cultural land during this period.
According to University of Florida
research, we can expect to lose
another 1.3 million acres of land
to urban conversion over the next
ten years."
Ms. Dale added that with these
numbers "we cannot be in a situ-
ation to depend on foreign coun-
tries for our food supply. If new


communities can incorporate
agriculture, we can at least save
some of the land and further de-
velop local green markets for our
food source."
Ms. Dale said that in terms of
dollars into rural Calhoun County
from the new Sky Project com-
munity/agriculture concept, "it
is expected to bring $22 million
into the county tax fund within
12 years. Additionally, through
university consortium such as
FSU assisting in the development
of renewal geo-thermal and so-
lar energy for Sky Project, these
consortium offer future careers
in the billion dollar 21st Century
"green technology" industry for
the rural areas.
In land use preservation, such
as Sky Project, the new green
community incorporates native
habitat, open space and agricul-
ture. Also in terms of dollars,
there are federal tax incentives for
green home builders, tenants, and
by 2008 there is expected to be a
federal tax deduction for the use
of green energy. On Yahoo's web
page, there is currently a contest
for the "Greenest Community
in Florida" with a cash prize of
$250,000 or 10 hybrid taxis."
However, housing/accommo-
dations are a concern to attract
new industries. To create afford-
able housing, Ms. Dale said that
the "unique pioneer heritage of
Glades/Hendry County can be
capitalized into dollars for sec-
ond home getaways for urban-
ites wanting to escape the city,
and affordable housing for locals
with new communities support-
ing both low and high end green
"cracker houses" and log homes
that also provide 21st Century
technology such as wireless in-
ternet.,
In closing, Ms. Dale para-
phrased poet Robert Frost's
poem, "The Road Not Taken," to
the graduates as the Glades/Hen-
dry County entrepreneurs moving
forward, following a path where
"it bends into the undergrowth"
and cannot be seen beyond the
curve but encouraged the gradu-
ates to take the "road less trav-
eled" into the future, leading the
community in preservation of the
land and cultural heritage in the
sustainable growth of green in-
dustry communities and technol-
ogy of the 21st century. In a final
note, Dr. Dale posed a question
to the graduates: "What is the
vision of Glades/Hendry Counties
ten years from now?"
At the end of the ceremony,
graduates received a gift packet
with a copy of two books: "A Land
Remembered," by Patrick Smith
and a personally inscribed copy of
"Would Do, Could Do and Made
Do: The Pioneer Cow Hunters
Who Tamed the Last Frontier," by
Nancy Dale.

* Increasing access to higher
education, particularly for under-
served populations via special
partnerships and specific work-
force-oriented baccalaureate de--
grees.
* Continuing their commit-
ment to affordability and vigor-
ously pursuing increased access
to financial aid.
* Renewing their commitment
to student retention, success and
completion via surveys and other


data collection means.
* Growth in facilities, class-
rooms, and labs to meet capac-
ity demands and requirements of
new technology.
Another important goal for the
future of community colleges is
the continued emphasis on high-
quality, relevant educational op-
portunities for students in both
university transfer and career/
technical programs. This will be
accomplished by:


Readiness rate set


for VPK providers


MIAMI - The State Board of
Education recently established
the 2005-06 Voluntary Prekinder-
garten (VPK) Provider Kinder-
garten minimum readiness rate.
All VPK providers that earned
a readiness rate of greater than
200 (201 or higher) out of 300
possible points are considered
satisfactory providers of the VPK
program. Of the 3,772 VPK pro-
viders, 3,216 providers scored
above the minimum rate. This
is the first time the State Board
has set a VPK minimum readi-
ness rate.
"The establishment of the
minimum readiness rates by the
State Board of Education allows
parents to assess a provider's
performance based on results,"
said Education Commissioner
Jeanine Blomberg. "VPK is a
powerful tool that provides chil-
dren with a firm foundation for
increased success through their
academic career."
Low-performing providers
are required to submit an im-
provement plan to their early
learning coalition or school dis-
trict by August 21. Support will
be available to low-perform-
ing providers through the Early
Learning Coalitions, Depart-
ment of Education, Agency for
Workforce Innovation, Depart-
ment of Children and Families,
community colleges and private
provider networks. Providers
identified as low performing
for three consecutive years will
no longer be eligible 'to provide
the VPK program. This year, 556
providers scored below the min-
imum rate.
Final 2005-06 VPK Provider
Kindergarten Readiness Rates
were announced last week fol-
lowing a two-week period for
providers to submit disputes to
the Department of Education.
Parents and other interested
persons can check a searchable,
online database with readiness
rate reports for individual VPK
providers at https://vpk.fldoe.
org/.
VPK Provider Kindergarten
Readiness Rates include only
the results of children who par-
ticipated in VPK during 2005-06.
The rate is based on the scores


of children who attended VPK
and who participated in the
Florida Kindergarten Readiness
Screener (FLKRS) - a screen-
ing instrument given to children
within the first 30 days of kin-
dergarten. The FLKRS is admin-
istered by district public schools
to all public school kindergar-
ten children. Children who par-
ticipated in VPK and attended
a non-public school for kinder-
garten were also provided the
opportunity to participate in the
screening.
Not all providers received
readiness rates. Readiness rates
were only calculated for provid-
ers with a minimum of four chil-
dren who were enrolled in the
VPK program for 85 percent or
more of the total instructional
hours and participated in each
of the three kindergarten screen-
ing measures.
Final readiness rates indicate
that children who participated
in the state's Voluntary Prekin-
dergarten (VPK) Education pro-
gram performed better on the
FLKRS than children who did
not participate in the program.
Further, children who attended
the VPK program less than 85
percent of the time still scored
higher on the FLKRS screening
measures than children who had
no exposure to the program.
Florida's VPK program is
jointly administered by the
Department of Education, the
Agency for Workforce Innova-
tion, and the Department of
Children and Families. The De-
partment of Education oversees
standards, curricula and profes-,
sional development; the Agency
forWorkforce Innovation admin-
isters the day-to-day operations
of the program including policy
development, financial manage-
ment and oversight of the 31
Early Learning Coalitions; and
the Department of Children and
Families provides oversight of
child care licensing, regulation,
Florida's Gold Seal Quality Care
program and issues credentials
for child care personnel.

ness Rates, visit https://vpk.fl-

Grandpa's land was on Fisheating Creek


By Ralph Wadlow as told
to Carroll Wadlow
Edited by
MaryAnn Morris
INI
Early Florida was an adventure
for all who came here, so when
information comesto light from
those who have now passed on,
we like to share with our read-
ers. The Wadlow family troubled
by the depression in Indiana and
the mother's health, came to
Florida, thinking it couldn't' be
any worse.
"Mother, Dad and I crossed the
Edison Bridge at about 2 p.m. on
December 16, 1932. From Tampa
to Ft. Myers we had travelled the
Tamiami Trail in the pouring rain.
'Look,' Mother pointed. 'It says
Thomas Edison Bridge, but hasn't
a single light.'
"Not even the rain could dim
the beauty of the street into
which we turned. Stately royal
palms lined both sides in either
direction. White picket fences en-
closed well kept lawns. Here was
a red brick mansion trimmed in
marble, there a quaint white
church, even a large white hotel
weather boarded and generously
trimmed with gingerbread all over
its broad verandas. A little farther
on we saw a sign, 'M. Flossie Hill
Co., the Ladies' Trading Place.'
'Stop here,' my mother called
from the backseat and she
climbed out of the car. 'We need
an umbrella.' But she was back
almost instantly.
'They have no umbrellas: they
say it never rains in the winter!'
The Boston Store was almost
across the street and they provid-
ed us with an umbrella.
'We had parked in front of busi-
nesses the likes of which we had
never seen. The entire fronts were
open to the sidewalk, with folding
doors pushed all the way back on
each side. There was a fruit stand,
Schlossberg"s ten-cent store, Pix-
ton Schultz Drugstore and appar-
ently, a land office. Their propri-
etors had become interested in us
by now. Our Essex Four sported
an Indiana license plate. Our
folding cots, quilts and tent were
stored in the back behind the
spare tire. A wooden box on the
running board held out cooking
utensils and food supplies, open-
ing out into a sort of table or work
counter.
"James H. Ragsdale came to-
ward us with hands extended,

The Wadlow's palmetto-thatched house in Palmdale, 1934,
creaked and groaned through hurricanes, but it never leaked.

both sides in either direction. White picket fences

presenting himself as a real estate
broker and promising to show us
excellent land to buy. We told him
we already had 20 acres on Fish-
eating Creek in Glades County,
east of Palmdale and hoped he
could direct us toward it.
'My grandfather, William Fer-
dinand Weiss, of Springfield,
Missouri, had offered us the use
of his land near Palmdale when
my mother's arthritis had flared
and her doctor advised that she
coome to a warm climate. Both
my father, Clyde V Wadlow and
I had been laid off in the depres-
sion crunch, so we all three de-
cided to come down and starve
together in the sun.
"Thankfully, this turned out to
be an overstatement, just barely. I
was 23 years old.
"Mr. Ragsdale started us east.
We turned around and went out
over Billy's Creek, leaving the
paving behind and proceeded to

"Old Man Waggoner stood on
his store porch.
'No,' he said, 'this is Citrus
Center. It is too late to make Palm-
dale tonight.' He opened the gate
alongside his store and waved
us into the Citrus Center Camp
Ground Trailer Park, which was
just an open field. As we rolled
through the gate, I heard a terrible
noise and felt an awful jolt. I did
not call attention to it then and we
went on in, bedded down for the
night as usual, in out tent and on
our cots.
"As soon as Mother and Dad
were asleep, I took the flashlight
and crawled under the car to find
that five of the six universal bolts
had dropped off. Next morning,

ments. There was Henry Ran-
dall's honey house just across the
road and he sold me five bolts for
25 cents. As soon as they were in
place, we were ready to roll and
headed for Palmdale Post Office
where we picked up our mail
forwarded from our residence,
Evansville, Indiana. One of the
letters was from the Evansville
bank where our last $200 was
on deposit; sadly, we found out
it had closed (Banks often folded
during the Depression.) Dad had
a five dollar bill and I had a half
dollar, which I got changed into
two quarters so 1 could each of
my parents a Christmas present.
The postmaster's son-in-law
offered to help us find Grandpa
land so we could set up camp He
led us to a spot so etherally beau-
tiful that we were speechless."
As you can see, the story is not
over. We will continue with more
of the story of the Wadlow family
on Fisheating Creek next week.

Toys recalled for Recreation


use of lead paint


TALLAHASSEE - Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is urging parents to
pay attention to a new recall on
some Thomas the Train toys.
The Consumer Product Safety
Commission in cooperation with
RC2 Corp., the toy importer an-
nounced the voluntary recall due
to a lead poisoning hazard. Par-
ents should take the recalled toys
away from their kids immediately.
Various Thomas & Friends Wood-
en Railway Toys contain lead in
the surface paint. Lead can be
toxic and cause illness if ingested
by young children. The recall
involves wooden vehicles, build-
ings and other train set compo-
nents. The front of the packaging
has the logo "Thomas & Friends
Wooden Railway" on the upper
left-hand corner. A manufacturing
code may be located on the bot-
tom of the product or inside the
battery cover. Toys marked with
codes containing "WJ" or "AZ"
are not included in this recall.
"Young children often put their
toys in their mouths so the pres-
ence of lepd in the paint is a seri-
ous thing," Bronson said. "I want
to help the CPSC get the word out
as quickly as possible."
There have been no reported
injuries from the product. About
a million and a half toys are in-
volved in the recall. The CPSC
says people who have the re,
called toys should contact RC2
Corp. for a replacement toy. The
company has a toll free number,

On July 5, 1998, Garnto was
spending the holiday in Fort My-
ers with Marcus Dennis and two
women. He was attempting to set
up a meeting between Dennis and
a DEA Agent to purchase a half
kilo of cocaine. When it was sug-
gested that Garnto was in danger
from Sanchez, he left, driving the
same Ford vehicle he had been
using as an undercover agent for
the HCSO. While driving north
on San Carlos Boulevard, Garnto
crossed the center line and struck
a vehicle driven by Erik S. Hemer-
son. As a result of the crash Ms.
Waddell, a passenger in the Hem-
erson vehicle, was killed. Mr. He-
merson and another passenger,
Gary L. Wheeler Jr., both suffered
debilitating injuries.

Just as the deputy was about
to give the man a warning and
order him to remove the tints, he
reportedly smelled a strong smell
of alcohol.
An open bottle of Heineken
beer was lying next to the driver
inside of a small, brown paper
bag, according to the report.
The suspect claimed that the
beer belonged to a female friend
that he had dropped off moments
earlier.
The driver was asked to exit
the vehicle, and for permission
for a search of the vehicle.
According to the sheriff's of-
fice, the suspect said, "Go ahead
and search it, there is nothing in
there."
Deputies found a large amount
of what later proved positive for
the presence of Ecstasy in the ve-
hicle. The illegal substance was
reportedly concealed in the car. *

Independence Day - Declaration of Dependence


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
Call me sentimental, but I still
believe in baseball, mom and ap-
ple pie. Something still happens
to me when I see people waving
flags and hear
patriotic songs ..
being sung. Call j .
me optimistic, .
but I still believe ' -.
in one nation
under God. In
God I still trust.
For us, the _'
Fourth of July is a John
day in on which Hicks
we declared that
we are an independent people, a
sovereign nation. The Declaration
of Independence was adopted
231 years ago next Wednesday.
Permit me to share some of those


words with you:
"We hold these truths to be
self-evident, that all men are cre-
ated equal, that they are endowed
by their Creator with certain un-
alienable rights, that among these
are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of
Happiness...
We, therefore, the Represen-
tatives of the United States of
America, in General Congress,
assembled, appealing to the Su-
preme Judge of the world for the
rectitude of our intentions, do, in
the Name, and by Authority of the
good People of these Colonies,
solemnly publish and declare,
That these United Colonies are,
and of right.ought to be free and
independent states...
And for the support of this
declaration, with a firm reliance
on the protection of divine provi-
dence, we mutually pledge to


each other our lives, our fortunes
and our sacred honor."
It was a Declaration of In-
dependence around which the
people rallied. But in that Decla-
ration of Independence there was
a declaration of dependence - not
upon the British government and
King George, but upon God and
upon each other.
Their arguments depended
upon God's natural order - we
are created free. The authority
behind these wonderful words
we celebrate came from God.
The founders of this great nation
needed God's authority to declare
their independence.
I believe the colonists trusted
God. I believe that you trust God
too and I believe that if we re-
member that we are dependent
upon God, He will use us to make
fireworks happen not just on the


fourth of July, but every day.
You see, I still expect fireworks.
I still expect miracles. I still expect
excitement and enthusiasm, heal-
ing and conversion. I expect fire-
works to happen every time God
calls us and sends us out. I expect
my faith and my church to make
a difference in my world. And I
want you to expect it, too!
Where would we be today if
the founders of our nation hadn't
exercised the authority God gave
them to declare liberty? Where
would we be today if the disciples
of Jesus hadn't used the authority
God gave them to proclaim God's
truth in the world? Where will the
world be tomorrow if we go forth
to change our world, depending
upon God for our strength and
our vision and taking the author-
ity God has given us? Imagine the
possibilities!

The coming holiday: July Fourth and a special freedom


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
We're coming up on another
holiday; Independence Day. July
seems to be a month when other
countries celebrate their "Inde-
pendence Days" too; France, Can-
ada, Jamaica and some others
that have come into being during
a hot summer month along with
the United States.
This year, the day falls in the
middle of the week and will be
celebrated between two week-
ends. I like to take time on holi-
days to reflect on their meaning
and all of the implications for oth-
ers and myself; and at this time to
especially think about the rights
and freedoms we enjoy. One,
of course, is the freedom of reli-
gion.
History is full of times when
that freedom wasn't available
to people in different parts of
the world; today is one of those
times. There are still parts of the
world where people are persecut-
ed for their religious beliefs. Not
too long ago, a man was declared
"mentally insane" so he could
leave his native country and not
be put to death - and all because
he had changed his religion.
Civil wars are being fought
with people identifying with one

religious faction or another; remi-
niscent of the Crusades in the
Middle Ages. My belief is that we
in the Western World have risen,
matured, grown in our under-
standing of God and have got-
ten beyond the persecution and
damage done in our past but is
still going on
in the name of
their religion. I
look with sad-
ness at parts of
the world where
wars go on or

notion of reli- Thomas

ity." On the other hand, we may
be abusing our religious freedom
in another way; ignoring our
right to exercise it. What should
be, "We respect the right of all-
to believe as they wish," seems
to be, "You don't have to believe
in anything," and with it comes
the notion, "You don't have to do
anything about it."
I grew up in a state (Pennsyl-
vania) where religious freedom
was a part of the historic founda-
tions. William Penn (the name of
the state means "Penn's Woods")
was a persecuted Quaker and
knew what the meaning of reli-
gious freedom meant. His colony

was chartered to make. sure that
people were free to believe in the
God they knew and he welcomed
all to bring their own expressions
to his colony. The idea spread and
has been a part of our heritage
ever since.
Unfortunately, I see the free-
dom stifled; in other parts of the
world as I watch the news, but
also at home by neglect. People
are acutely aware of the loss of
freedom of assembly or free-
dom of speech; the freedom of
religion is more subtle. It is lost
when people no longer think God
is important or at work in their
lives; it is lost when people fail to
stand up for what they believe;
lost when people no longer fol-
low their consciences when they
make choices and it is lost when
we have something but don't use
it; we might as well not have it at
all.
The Christian mandate
is that we are "doers of the
word..."(James 1:22) lest we lose
something at the heart of our life,
our being, our country. I like to
stop and think about how we've
come into being; how we've
made it through the hard times;
wars, depression, internal strife,
corruption and upheavals, and
have been able to continue be-
cause - I believe - God has been
there with us.

I find it sad that we don't thank
Him more than we do, but that
seems to be a part of our nature.
Jesus knew about that: He healed
ten lepers and only one stopped
to thank Him afterward (Luke
17:11 - 19). My prayer is that, on
the Fourth of July this year, we
may be the ones who stop and
thank Him. for His guidance and
all that He does and has done for
us as a people and nation. Thanks
be to God we have the freedom
to thank Him.

It has, happed to EVERY great
nation before, NOT ONE avoided
the curse:
And there's no assurance that
we are exempt, their fate - could
be ours - or worse!
Wake up! America, we shout
in despair, as we view the torment
of change;
Crime in the streets - warfare
against law, Perversion and filth
born of greed!
"Must we eat our own flesh -
and drink our own blood, to as-
suage this great lust to destroy?


For the right to dissent and the
will to reject, what has made us
- Whatever, we are?"
God forbid! The price is too
great to be paid, by those who are
yet to be born;
Let's give them a chance that
our fathers gave us, in a nation,
UNITED and STRONG!
"STAND UP! AMERICA!"...let
your voices be heard, reject those
who destroy with their hate;
God can bless this great land,
if TOGETHER we stand, let's us
pray we're not already too late!


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
As we are celebrating the birth
of our Nation, I believe the follow-
ing poem is very pertinent:
I've pondered a question that
searches my soul, yet, no answer
seems clearly defined;
"Will history record that Amer-
ica survived, the seething unrest
of our time?"
Or have we as a Nation, finally
arrived, at the crest, of the moun-
tain we climb;
With nothing left to be written
of us, but the tragedy of a _ation's
decline?

CITY OF SOUTH BAY
PWS ID#4501911
2006 ANNUAL DRINKING WATER
QUALITY REPORT
Este informed continene information muy important sobre su agua beber. Traduscalo 6 hable con un amigo quiten Io entienda bien.
We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Drinking Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and
dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to conenually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. If you
have any questions or concerns about the information provided in this report, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed.
WHERE.YOURWATERCOMES FROM
The water source for the City of South Bay is surface water that is withdrawn from the Lake Okeechobee Border Canal. The water Is treated by aeration, lime softening, coagulants and filtration. Finally, the water Is disinfected using
chlorine before it is delivered to the customers.
HOW WE ENSURE YOUR DRINKING WATER IS SAFE
The City of South Bay routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the
period of January 1 to December 31, 2006. The state allows us to monitor for some contaminants less than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants do not change frequently. Some of the data in the water
quality summary table are more than one year old but are based on the most recent water analyses performed and are representative of the water quality.
HOW TO READ THE TABLE
The terms used in the water quality summary table and in other parts of this report are defined below.
Action level (AL) - the concentration of a contaminant which, If exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.
Maximum contaminant level or MCL - the highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in dnking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum contaminant level goal or MCLG - the level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there Is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL - the highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG - the level of a dnnking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control
microbial contaminants.
N/A - not applicable
ND - means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
ppm - parts per million or milligrams per liter is one part by weight of analyte to one million parts by weight of the water sample.
ppb - parts per billion or micrograms per liter is one part by weight of analyte to one billion parts by weight of the water sample.
pCi/I - picocuries per liter is a measure of the radioactivity in water

ADDITIONAL HEALTH INFORMATION
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring
minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. /
C Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses.
D Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and
septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining actvifoes.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish
limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More
information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at
1-800-426-4791 .. ...... .....


FOR CUSTOMERS WITH SPECIAL HEALTH CONCERNS
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than
the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons
with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ
transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some
elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people
should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers.
EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by
Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from
the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (1-800-426-4791). .

new full-time jobs for residents of the City and surrounding Hendry County.
Although the project is located in the 500 year floodplain, no part of the project is in
a wetland. The improvements cannot be undertaken in any other location due to
the selection of the site by the private businesses and the need for the infrastruc-
ture to support the new business. There are no practicable alternatives.
The proposed improvements conform to applicable State floodplain protection stan-
dards and are part of the City's long range floodplain management plan. The pro-
posed actions will not affect natural or beneficial floodplain values, and the
residents of the City will benefit from this project The engineer for the project will
ensure that any necessary mitigation measures will be taken, if applicable, to
minimize adverse impacts to the environment

Community Affairs and the U.S. Department of Housin and Urban Development.

CFR 58, and it has been determined that the activities will have no significant im-
pact on the environment. Therefore, an Environment Impact Statement (EIS), as
described in the National Environmental Policy Act, will not be prepared. Specific
reason for finding of no significant impact and decision not to prepare an EIS Is
that the project will not significantly affect the quality of the human environment
