Local girl dies in highway crash


Sport-utility vehicle
veered off U.S. 27

WESTERN PALM BEACH
COUNTY - A Thursday morning
drive of U.S. Highway 27 turned
out to be a fatal encounter for a
23-year-old Clewiston woman.
According to information
provided by the Florida Highway
Patrol, on May 8 at about 7:05
a.m., Mayra V. Flores, the driver
of a 2000 GMC sport-utility ve-


hicle, was travel-

she just crossed

battalion chief of the Palm Beach
County Fire Rescue, an off-duty
paramedic witnessed the ac-
cident at about 7:10, when fire


rescue workers were dispatched
to the scene.
Less than 15 minutes later,
the fire rescue arrived to the area,
pronouncing the driver dead at
the scene of the crash. A passen-
ger, 24-year-old Gabriel G. Horta
from Pahokee, was listed in se-
rious condition and transported
to Glades General Hospital for
observation.
"Right now, we don't know

Minutes

County recognizes
Salvation Army; re-
visits substation
By Stankeisha Burchell
Special to the Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - More crowd-
ed than previous months, this
month's Hendry County Com-
mission meeting featured exten-
sive discussion.
In this month's public hear-
ings, Sunshine Towers Inc. re-
quest a special exception to al-
low the co ,i ij:iii- of a 150-l,
monopole structure.
The company wants to erect
towers for T-mobile cell phones.
Evidently, local municipalities
can't ban cell phone towers be-
cause it is a federal issue that it
has no control over.
Towers are registered with
the FCC (Federal Communica-
tions Commission).
Local concerns arise, how-
ever, about the effects of large
sound wave frequencies as they
relates to the mental condition
autism. Autism is characterized
by great difficulty in communi-
cating and forming relationships
with other people and in using
language and abstract concepts.
Talks arise again regarding
the fate of the police substation
on El Paso Avenue.
Destroyed by Hurricane Wil-
ma in 2005, the buildings fate
has yet to be determined.
Deemed unfit by some, but
redeemable by others, the future
of old police substation building,
neighboring the fairgrounds, has
been an unresolved issue ever
since its evacuation.

Smart safety tips for spending time outdoors


With warmer weather arriving,
the call to head outdoors can't be
far behind.
Boating, camping and RV rec-
'reation, fishing, canoeing and
numerous other outdoor sports
enjoy a popular resurgence each
summer.
Unfortunately, so do acci-
dental injuries, according to the
Consumer Product Safety Com-
,-mission.
' That's why having the proper
'gear on hand to reduce the threat


Lehigh:
*Pack a first aid kit. Include
bug spray, sunscreen, antiseptics
for cuts and scrapes, a snakebite
kit and pain relievers along with
other emergency supplies.
*Learn CPR and how to treat
serious injuries. Cardiopulmonary
resuscitation (CPR) and basic first
aid skills are essential, especially
if you find yourself in an isolated
area.

victims after a swimming acci-

Know how to deal with breaks,
sprains, head and neck injuries.
*Safely secure outdoor recre-
ational and camping gear.
A tie-down that absorbs shocks
and holds items firmly in place is
best.
A new stretch cord called
Cordzilla from Lehigh features
a bungee encased in a flexible

*Keep campfires low and
away from brush, trees, cars, tents
and other potential hazards.
One stray spark from a camp-,
fire is all it takes to ignite nearby
brush or potentially toxic materi-
als.
*Keep a fire extinguishing
spray nearby and never leave fires
unattended.
Make sure family members
know where fire extinguishers


are located and how to use them.
First Alert� offers a portable and
effective new fire extinguishing
spray, TundraT, designed for easy,
one-hand use.
No pins to pull or hoses to
maneuver, and Tundra cleans up
with a damp cloth, so it's environ-
mentally friendly.
*Watch the weather. Keep a
portable radio on fiand to stay on
top of current weather forecasts.
Inclement weather can arrive


with little warning, so stay in the
know and be prepared to move
to a nearby shelter.
The summer fun is about to
begin, with more than 59 million
Americans planning to take to the
water this season, according to
the National Marine Manufactur-
ers Association.

icans place themselves among

igar Prices Affordable and Stable


WASHINGTON-At a time
,when the nation's newspapers
.are filled with stories of climbing
'commodity prices, the U.S. De-
;partment of Agriculture yesterday
!published data showing sugar has
been the exception to the rule.
According to USDA figures,
:sugar prices have remained steady
-over the past three years. In fact,
'the average price for a pound of
,sugar at the grocery store in March
was 50.4 cents, down more than
:a cent from 2007.
Alan Welp, a Colorado sugar
'farmer and president of the Amer-
;ican Sugarbeet Growers Associa-
.tion, points out that even though
'the price people pay at the check-
out line is low it is higher than
;the price sugar producers receive
:from the grocery store for that
*same bag of sugar.
: "A farmer's share of any food
-product is miniscule," he said.
"For a bag of sugar, we're getting


barely half what a shopper is pay-
ing. We're actually getting less for
the sugar we produce today than
we did in 1980."
The divide between consumer
price and a sugar farmer's profit
is even more stark in processed
foods like candy, cakes, and cook-
ies. For example, there is less
than less than two pennies worth
of sugar in a 72-cent chocolate
bar.
Prices for sugar farmers are so
low right now that many produc-
ers are wondering whether they
will be able to repay government
loans taken out to produce the
crop.
"If we don't get some kind of
relief from slumping prices soon,
a lot of cane farmers in my area
could be forced to leave the busi-
ness," said Louisiana farmer Jes-
sie Breaux, who pointed out that
many of these growers are still
recovering from Hurricanes Rita


and Katrina.
"This country can't afford to
lose U.S. sugar producers be-
-cause we'd have to depend on
foreign countries to supply us
with an ingredient used in almost
everything we eat," Breaux, the
president of the American Sugar
Cane League, explained.
The last time America was
heavily dependent on overseas
sugar production was during
World War II when sugar .pur-
chases were rationed by the
government because foreign
supplies dried up. Ironically, this
week marks the 66th anniversary
of sugar rationing.
Both Welp and Breaux agree
that the best hope for recover-
ing from these slumping farmer
prices is Congress passing and
President Bush signing the pend-
ing Farm Bill.

Prices for fuel continue to rise at a seemingly alarming rate. However, the Let's Refuel
America Program helps provide stability to that problem with a simple solution.
Using a special card, program participants pay $2.99 per gallon for a maximum number of
gallons (which varies depending on model) of unleaded gas or diesel fuel in each of
the next 3 years. So no matter what the price at the pump says, you'll never have to pay
more than $2.99/gallon.
To qualify for the program, you must purchase or lease an eligible Chrysler vehicle from
May 7 through June 2, 2008 and have a valid MasterCard or Visa credit card or check card.

New technology means new sources of stress


The modern computer age
comes with new kinds of stress.
One of my "pet peeves" is the
stress associated with dealing
with e-mail hoaxes.
Some of these hoaxes claim
to associate health hazards with
everyday foods. Others associate
health benefits with questionable
substances or practices.
For example, these emails
make claims such as "scrubbing
sponges contain agent orange,"
to "disposable chop sticks cause
cancer" to "there is lead in lip-
stick." (All of these claims are
false.)


' A

Healthier

Life
The hoaxes quite often sound


convincing, quoting researchers
by name, claiming the informa-
tion was announced on the To-
day Show or claiming to actually
know a "friend of a friend" some-
thing happened to.
At best, these emails are a joke
that wastes your time. (Such as
the email claiming the Titanic
was carrying a large cargo of
mayonaise bound for Mexico,
and when it was sunk the Mexi-
can people declared a day of
mourning -- sinko de mayo.)
At worst, the email hoaxes are
connected to web sites that at-
tempt to steal your money or your


identity or infect your computer
with spyware or a virus.
These email hoaxes are often
forwarded by well-meaning, if na-
ive people, who don't mean any
harm.
If you receive an email that
sounds odd or a little too interest-
ing, before forwarding it to your
entire address book, check it out.
Don't subject your friends and
family to another email hoax.
There are quite a few web sites
devoted to researching and de-
bunking email myths and hoaxes.
A few are:
www.snopes.com


* www.truthorfiction.com/
www.hoax-slayer.com/
www.urbanlegends.about.
com.
While the internet can be a
source of health hoaxes, there
are also some many good web
sites that offer useful information.
When online, consider the source.
And if the web site is trying to sell
you something -- beware.
For general health information,
there are a few web sites I trust. I
like www.peoplespharmacy.com,
which is the web site of the Peo-
ple's Pharmacy radio program on
National Public Radio. I also like


www.health.harvard.edu/ which
is the public information web site
for Harvard Medical School. The
Center for Disease Control web
site at www.cdc.gov also has a lot
of useful health information.
Before making any change to
your diet or exercise plan, consult
your doctor. This is especially im-
portant if you are on any prescrip-
tion drugs. Some drugs interact
badly with foods that would oth-
erwise be considered "healthy."


April rainfall not enough to drop water use limits


WEST PALM BEACH - The
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) announced on
Wednesday, May 7, that South
Florida received above-average
rainfall in April, continuing a
moderate improvement since
February. District-wide rainfall
averaged 3.44 inches in April,
about one inch higher than the
historical average for the month
and slightly higher than the 3.35
inches received in March.
April marks the third con-
secutive month of above-average
rainfall during the dry season this
year.
South Florida's water supply
has been impacted by a multi-
year rainfall deficit, although
groundwater levels in most areas
of the District are benefiting from
three months of above-average
rainfall.
The District's 16-county region
remains in a water shortage, and
landscape irrigation restrictions
remain in place.
Since the start of the dry sea-
son on November 1, 2007, Dis-
trict meteorologists recorded an
average of 12.73 inches of rain
District-wide.
Rainfall from early Febru-
ary through early April brought
improvements, but through the
end of April, dry season rainfall
remains 1.86 inches below the
historical average.
In some southern and inland
areas of the District, including por-
tions of Broward, Glades, Hendry,
Miami-Dade, Monroe and Palm
Beach ,counties, dry season rain-
fall is now close to historical a%


erages as a result of the February
through early April rains.
Most coastal areas and coun-
ties north of Lake Okeechobee,
however, remain one to four
inches below historical average
rainfall, including Collier, High-
lands, Lee, Martin, Okeechobee,
Osceola, Polk counties and east-
ern Palm Beach, Broward and
Miami-Dade counties.
Water managers remain cau-
tious, because May can be one
of the drier months of the year. In
May 2007, Lake Okeechobee lev-
els dropped about ten inches that
month due to low rainfall and
high evaporation rates.
Florida's wet season typically
lasts about five months, begin-
ning in late May or June and con-
tinuing through November 1.
The wet season on average
produces two-thirds of the re-
gion's annual rainfall.
Current Water Levels
At 10.09 feet above sea level
this morning, Lake Okeechobee
levels have dropped about an
inch since the last week of March
and are now about 3.5 feet below
the historical average for this time
of year.
However, Lake Okeechobee
levels remain more than half a
foot higher than they were at this
time in 2007.'
Groundwater and surface
water levels across most of the
District remain at average or
above-average levels, although
they have declined over the last
couple of weeks due to low rain-
fall amounts typically observed
as the end of the dry season ap-


Jill
FoWL


preaches.
Water levels in the Kissimmee
River are near regulation levels
and higher, similar to this time
last year. Water levels in the three
Everglades Water Conservation
Areas in western Palm Beach,
Broward and Miami-Dade coun-
ties are also near or above their
regulation levels for this time of
year and nearly more than a foot
higher than this time last year.
Water Restrictions and long-
term conservation planning
Emergency landscape water-
ing restrictions remain in place
throughout South Florida to help
manage the water supply impact-
ed by a multi-year rainfall deficit.
Outdoor irrigation accounts for
up to 50 percent of water use.
Details about current outdoor
water restrictions are available at
www.savewaterfl.com.
Separate from the emergency
watering restrictions, theDistrict
is also seeking public input on a
proposed year-round landscape
irrigation rule.
The rule is a part of the Dis-
trict's comprehensive water con-
servation program to bring about
a permanent conservation ethic
throughout South Florida
Public workshops to continue
gathering ipput on the proposed
year-round landscape irrigation
rule are scheduled for the follow-
ing dates:

Faith is the substance of things hoped for


By Jackie Miller
Hebrews 11:1 says, "Faith is
the substance of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen."
Faith is the base, or foundation
stone, on which your whole life
is established. But do you know
just exactly what you believe? Ro-
mans 10:17 says, "Faith cometh
by hearing and hearing by the
Word of God."
There is simple test that will
show you what you do believe
about God, about yourself, about
your world; and about your fel-
low man. Take a look at the way
you are acting and reacting to life,
and you will have a clear picture
of what you believe in your heart.
The test of faith is action and
perseverance--activity and per-
sistence. The words you say and
the thoughts you think, you think
mean little compared to the moti-


vation that determines the actions
of your life.
For instance, a group of people
gathered for a meeting to pray for
rain. Only one small boy brought
an umbrella. The people said
(and perhaps even thought they
believed) that they were going
to pray for rain, but they had no
real faith that God would answer
their prayers, or they would have
prepared for the eventuality. Their
actions spoke louder than their
words they said.
What do you believe about
God? Your actions will tell you.
If you feel deeply that God cares
for you and wants to help you to
greater good, you will take steps
daily that indicate your trust in
God and your willingness to co-
operate in bringing forth His plan
of good in your life. You don't just
say a prayer occasionally and then
decide that it didn't work. Rather,


you will revamp your whole life to
express an abiding faith that God
will help you when you take all
the steps you can to help yourself.
You will act in faith, and you will
persist. You will not give us easily,
or fall back into an old attitude of
blaming God for your difficulties.
You will have an umbrella handy
when you pray for rain. You will
act on faith, and thus shape your
life for good.
What do you believe about
yourself? Many time a brash, bel-
ligerent attitude covers a deep in-
feriority complex; such a person
may feel that he cannot compete
in his world, so he seeks to alien-
ate others and blame them for his
shortcomings. If you truly believe
in yourself, your basic goodness,
your abilities, and your poten-
tial, you will act to bring forth
that which you are. You will not
blame others for your problems.


Right for a different reason


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
In the summer of 1980,1 I spent
six weeks in a program with
young Canadian adolescents.
It was the summer when Ron-
ald Reagan was running against
Jimmy Carter and they asked me
who I thought was going to win. I
told them "Ronald Reagan." They
were shocked; telling me, "but
Jimmy Carter is such a nice per-
son!" I replied "Yes, but Ronald
Reagan comes closer to our na-
tional hero - John Wayne." Rea-
gan was elected; at his inaugu-
ration the Iranian crisis that had
everyone's attention came to an
end with the release of the hos-
tages. My reasons for suggesting
Reagan would win had nothing to
do wth logic, polls, speeches, can-
didates election teams, debates or
any of the things ordinarily touted
by the media. My answer was
based on an observation about
some of the signs I saw in our
national psyche and values, and
a person who was running. Per-
haps by coincidence I was right,
maybe by making a good guess,
maybe by picking key character-
istics on where to bet. I note that
Jesus calls upon His detractors,
the Pharisees and Sadducees, to
"read the signs." They ask hm to
"show them a sign from Heaven
(Matthew 16:lff." He answers
+ them by telling them that they
already know how to read the


signs: "When it is evening, you
say 'It will be fair weather; for the
sky is red.' And in the morning 'It
will be stormy today, for the sky
is red and threatening' You know
how to interpret the appearance
of the sky, but you cannot inter-
pret the signs of the times (vss
2-3)." It is that Jesus expects us
to read the "signs of the times"
and then act on them. The signs
were there for me when I was
asked to predict; only they were
different signs than others might
have used or expected. Part of my
answer was related to my belief
that people make choises that
are not always sane, rational or
predictable by customary means.
Jesus called on the Pharisees
and Sadducees to look at what
was before them and what they
had already seen, and use their
abilities to discern the truth from
them. in spite of all of our best
reasons, we spend money, get
married, move around the coun-
try, hold crazy religious views,
change jobs, vote for candidates
for all sorts of reasons that have
little or nothing to do with reading
the signs in front of us. Ican see
why the Lord refused to give addi-
tional signs when He was asked;
He knew it wouldn't do any good.
People go on being peopleany-
way, that seems to be the way we
are! Besides, there were a host of
signs already around and all over
theh place and He told them so.
Pick the right ones and you're
home free - if (and it's a big "if")


you follow them. My sympathy
is for those who do not read the
earthly signs but think they have
insight into the Heavenly ones. It's
about loving the ones who seem
unlovable, about protecting the
vulnerable and weak, about living
responsibly, about sharing what
we have, about being as reason-
able as possible with others and
in our beliefs, about respecting
how God made the world and
acting accordingly, about wor-
ship, about being thankful, about
honoring our commitments to
others and the world where we
live, about using the knowledge
God has revealed to us in right
ways. The signs abound about
what happens when we do such
things and about what happens
when we don't do them. Some
things in our world have gotten
better as a result; some have got-
ten worse. Sometimes we got it
right; and sometimes we were
wrong. One thing for certain;
we'll ahve to keep doing it over
and over until w get it right. More
signs? "Proof?"= No! living as
intended and then watching the
great things that come from be-
ing at one with others, the world
and with God. Maybe this doesn't
make sense with the ways of the
world; but the world isn't always
rational anyway. Maybe it will
work out all right for us when we
read God's signs and follow them
for a different reason.


Flying high, wings like eagles


Your actions, and your persever-
ance, will demonstrate your basic
belief that you were created to be
something special. And your be-
lief, put into action, will make it
so in other ways.
What do you believe about
your world? The way you react
to the things that happen, near
you or halfway around the globe,
tells much of your attitude toward
the universe in which you live.

Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
The eagle teaches its young
to fly on their, own. The parent
pushes the baby bird out of the
nest and the eaglet tumbles help-
lessly through the air, plummet-
ing to earth and certain death. But
then, just in time, the parent-eagle
swoops under its young, catches
the bird on its own strong, spread-
ing wings, and bears it aloft again
on sturdy pinions to try once
more to fly.
God uses this example of the
eagles and eaglets in Exodus 19:4
to help illustrate His relationship
with us when He states, "You
yourselves have seen what I did to
Egypt, and how I carried you on
eagles' wings and brought you to
myself." In Deuteronomy 32:10,
God says He guards His people
as the "apple of His eye," like an
eagle that stirs up its nest and hov-
ers over its young, that spreads its
wings to catch them and carries
them on its pinions.
God, who is majestic in power
and might, teaches us that He
accommodates Himself to our
weakness, and bears us up with
His ever sturdy strength. It's reas-
suring when we remember that
we have the wings of God hover-
ing over us to meet us at our point
of need.
Back in the 1980's Bette Midler
came out with the song "You are
the wind beneath my wings".
There was a story in the Read-

S foroveracentury


ers Digest Magazine about a man
who saw this song come to life
when he saw a man roller-skating
toward him with an owl, wings
outstretched, clinging to a leather
patch on his shoulder. As they got
closer to him, he realized the owl
was missing part of one wing.
The skater stopped for a
breather, and the man struck up a
conversation as the skater rested.
"Twice a day we go out so he can
pretend he's flying," the skater
shared. "I'm sure he would repay
you if he could," the man replied.
"He already has," the skater said.
"I used to weigh 25 pounds more
and I smoked." With that, the
skater and bird took off again".
As I reflect on the wings of God
uplifting me in my times of need,
I think of the song, "The Wind
Beneath My Wings", but mostly
my mind turns to the many won-
derful people God has placed in
my life who are and have been an
encouragement to me.
There have been times when


my wing was broken and I was
flapping around in circles on the
ground when someone came
along to help me fly again.
I have come to the realiza-
tion that we and those around us
many times are called to be the
hand of God - reaching out and
lifting others up and helping them
to fly when they can no longer fly
themselves. We can be "the wind
beneath their wings" and God's
provision of strength.
From ancient times the eagle
has been regarded as a symbol
of courage and power because of
the altitude at which it flies.
The strength it displays in flight
is remarkable.
God had this kind of strength
and flight in mind for us when He
said, "But they that wait upon the
Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings
as eagles." (Isaiah 40:31)
With wings as eagles, we can
lift others up for the glory of God,
and all fly high.

Some newspapers seem to take pleasure in the bad news. Not us.

We do print "bad" news. (It IS newsworthy when things go wrong, and
citizens need to know about problems.)

Still, we give most of our attention to good news - the kind you clip and
tape to your refrigerator door. (This isn't difficult. The vast majority of
what happens in our community IS good.)

How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your editor.

The Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of its intent to issue an Environmental Resource Permit (ERP)/water
quality certification (File Number 0277994-001) to Rinker Matenals of Floida 100 Lem Carnes Road, Davenport, Florida,
33837, for a surface water management system for an existing sand mine and for an expansion of the mine. The mine operat-
ed under various permits issued by the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) since April 15, 1993. The mine is
currently operating under Permit No 22-00245-S, issued by the SFWMD. Under the operating agreement between the Depart-
ment and SFWMD, the Department is processing the ERP application for the existing system and the expansion area
The application is for the addition of a 355.2 acre tract known as the Langford pasture, increasing the area to be mined in the
South Deese tract by 13.4 acres, relocating the Greensmix area in the North Deese tract, mining the existing 0.7-acre Greensmix
area, increasing the mining area south of the existing Greensmix area by 3.9 acres, and relocating the processing plant to the
north and west of its current location. The total size of the property is increasing from 539.2 acres to 894.4 acres. The size of
the surface water management system will increase from 375.5 acres to 588.4 acres. The total area of extraction will increase
from 338.5 acres to 548.1 acres.
The current permit does not approve dredging or filling in wetlands or other surface waters. The proposed expansion will include
dredging or falling of a 0 77-acre ditch that was originally cut in uplands (upland ditch 8) in the South Deese tract In the Lang-
ford pasture, 1.92 acres of upland cut ditches (upland ditches 1 through 7) and 0.16 of an acre of isolated herbaceous wet-
lands (wetlands P and 0) will be dredged. No wetland mitigation is required.
The Langford pasture will be interconnected with the existing mine area through culverts under the private access road allowing
recirculation of mine process water. The total size of the impervious area will remain as 6.1 acres. The permitted has a consent
to easement right-of-way (extract sand) from the Army Corps of Engineers on 33.42 acres. The estimated depth of mining (lake
depths) is approximately 50 feet below natural ground which is 49.24 feet below the normal water level. Wetlands that will not
be dredged or filled are protected by a minimum 50-foot upland buffer. Wetlands H, I, N, and 0 must be monitored for stress
assessment.
No changes to the method of mining will occur. It will continue to operate as a closed-loop system. The sand will be extracted
via an electric hydraulic dredge approximately 50 feet below the level of the floating dredge. No unauthorized chemicals or ad-
ditives are allowed in the mine processing. The processed sand is transported off site via trucks.
The post-mining land use of the 894.4 acre mine will be 350.1 acres of improved pasture, 331.1 acres of water (includes littoral
shorelines), 116.0 acres of freshwater marsh, 70.9 acres of cropland and pastureland, 9.6 acres of wax myrtle uplands, 6.5
acres of borrow pits, 6.1 acres of entrance roads, 3.0 acres of live oaks, and 1,1 acres of mixed upland hardwoods.
No off-site discharge of water from the mining operation is authorized below the design 100-year, 3-day storm event. The total
area served by the system will be 588.4 acres. The operator is required to comply with the signed and sealed Best Manage-
ment Practices Plan. The end of the construction phase of this permit will be 20 years after this permit Is issued. This permit
will replace and supercede Permit No. 22-00245-S, issued by SFWMD.
The existing mine and proposed mining areas are located on the east side of US 27, approximately three miles south of Palmdale,
in Sections 11, 12, and 13, Township 41 South, Range 30 East, and in Sections 7 and 18, Township 41 South, Range 31 East,
Glades County.
Under this intent to Osue, the permit is hereby granted subject to the applicant's compliance with any requirement in this intent to
publish notice of this intent in a newspaper of general circulation and to provide proof of such publication in accordance with
section 50.051 oo the Florida Statutes (ES. This action is final and effective on tie date filed with the Clerk of the Department
unless a sufficient petition for an administrative hearing Is timely filed under sections 120.569 and 120.57, ES. as provided be-
low. If a sufficient petition for an administrative hearing is timely filed, this intent to issue automatically becomes only proposed
agency action on the application, subject to the result of the administrative review process. Therefore, on the filing ot a timely
and sufficient petition, this action will not be final and effective until further order of the Department. When proof of publication
is provided, if required by this intent, and if a sufficient petition is not timely filed, the permit will be issued as a ministerial ac-
tion. Because an administrative hearing may result in the reversal or substantial modification of this action, the applicant is ad-
vised not to commence construction or other activities until the deadlines noted below, for filing a petition for an administrative
hearing or request for an extension of time, have expired and until the permit has been executed and delivered. Mediation is not
available.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's action may petition for an administrative proceeding (hear-
ing) under sections 120.569 and 120,57, F.S. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed (re-
ceived by the clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35

an extension of time to file a petition for an administrative hearing. The Department may, for good cause shown, grant the re-
quest for an extension of time. Requests for extension of time must be filed with the Office of General Counsel of the Depart-
ment at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, before the applicable deadline. A
timely request for extension of time shall toll the running of the time period for filing a petition until the request is acted upon. If
a request is filed late, the Department may still grant it upon a motion by the requesting party showing that the failure to file a re-
quest for an extension of time before the deadline was the result of excusable neglect.
If a timely and sufficient petition for an administrative hearing is filed, other persons whose substantial interests will be affected by
the outcome of the administrative process have the right to petition to intervene in the proceeding. Intervention will be permitted
only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the iling of a motion in compliance with rule 28-106205, FA.C.

ment for notice of agency action may file a petition within 21 days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publica-
tion.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of filing. The failure of
any person to file a petition for an administrative hearing within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that per-
son's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under sections 120.569 and 120.57, ES.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's achon is based must contain the following information:
(a) the name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file or identification number, if known;
(b) the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner's repre-
sentative, 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 are or will be affected by the agency determination;
(c) a statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the agency decision:

require a remand for an administrative hearing, the applicant has the right to seek judicial review of the order under section
120.68, F.S., by the filing of a notice of appeal under rule 9,110 of the Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure with the Clerk of the

for an administrative determination (hearing), or, pursuant to Section 120.573 Fla.

to 120.57 or 120.68 Fla. Stat. respectively. The petition must contain the informa-

not be accepted. A copy of the Petition must also be mailed at the time of filing to
the persons named above at the address indicated. Failure to file a petition within
the 21 days of publicabon of notice, or other receipt of the written notice, which-
ever first occurs first, constitutes a waiver of any right such person has to an ad-
ministrative determination (hearing) pursuant to Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
Fla. Stat. as provided by Subsection 28-106.11 (4) Fla. Admin. Code.

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 Fla. Admin.

different from the position taken by it in this notice.
In addition to requesting an administrative hearing, any petitioner may elect to pur-
sue mediation. The election may be accomplished by filing with the District a me-
diation agreement with all parties to the proceeding (i.e., the applicant, the
District, and any person who has filed a tmely and sufficient petition for a hear-
ing). The agreement must contain all the information required by Rule

Florida Communities Trust closes 2008 Florida Forever Grant application cycle


"Stan Mayfield Working
*Waterfronts Program,
which would receive
$7.5 million in Florida
Forever funding and
would be administered
by the Florida
Communities Trust
program"

TALLAHASSEE-Dozens of Florida
communities will compete for


funds to preserve open space and
recreational areas, following the
close of the 2008 application pe-
riod for grants awarded by Florida
Communities Trust (FCT), the
state's premier program for help-
ing local communities acquire
property for conservation efforts.
FCT received a total of 91 ap-
plications from local governments
and non-profit environmental
organizations during a 75-day ap-
plication period that ended this
week. For the coming year, local
communities have requested a
combined $260.7 million from the


Florida Forever Program through
FCT, which will have $63 million
available to award. Including lo-
cal matching funds, the projects
would use a combined $423
million to acquire 13,694 acres
throughout the state.
"Local communities have
come to recognize that Florida
Communities Trust can be a
valuable partner to help them
achieve what they could not do
on their own," said Department
of Community Affairs Secretary
Tom Pelham, who serves as chair
of the FCT Governing Board. "I


am pleased to see that so many
communities are committed to
preserving and protecting their
natural, cultural and historical
resources for current and future
generations of Floridians to en-
joy."
Since its inception in 1991,
Florida Communities Trust has
provided more than $687 million
to local governments to preserve
parks and recreational space.
The 91 projects proposed for FCT
funding in the 2008 application
cycle will be evaluated and scored
over the next several months, and


the Governing Board will meet in
September to determine which
projects will be approved for
funding.
Secretary Pelham commended
the Legislature's recent decision
to reauthorize Florida Forever
through Senate Bill 542, which
awaits Governor Charlie Crist's
approval. Under that legislation,
FCT would award $63 million
per year for local land acquisition
projects. In addition, the bill es-
tablishes the Stan Mayfield Work-
ing Waterfronts Program, which
would receive $7.5 million in Flor-


ida Forever funding and would be
administered by the Florida Com-
munities Trust program once ad-
ministrative rules and operating
procedures are developed.

Glades Day's softball team falls in title quest


INI/Naji Tobias
The Glades Day Gators softball team, coached by Sherri Paez, made it to the Class 2A state
Final Four tournament in Plant City on May 7 - this came as a result of winning the Class 2A
regional championship on April 29. The state team consisted of Kaitlyn Barningham, Kailey
Boss, Alana Byrd, Cassidy Carter, Jordan Hawkins, Alli Jimenez, Brianna Lohmann, Alex
Lynn, Amber Martyn, Brittany McDaniel, Jennifer Onega, Zoe Perry, Chelsea Powell, Phlysica
Powell, Samantha Sgroi, Melinda Soriano, Alyssp.Sullivan and Chelsie Underwood.


Gators lose in Class
2A state semifinals to
Wewahitchka, 1-0

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE - Reaching the
Class 2A state Final Four in soft-
ball is no easy feat, especially
when there are a slew of teams
throughout Florida in the classi-
fication.
But this year, the Glades Day
Gators did just that, fulfilling its ul-
timate goal for the season - well,
almost.
Though the Gators softball
team made it to the state tour-
nament, they would lose to the
eventual Class 2A state champion,
Wewahitchka, in a heartbreaking
1-0 loss on May 7. The state tour-
nament was played at Plant City
Stadium in Plant City.
With two outs in the bottom
of the fifth inning, Glades Day's
defense made an error on a er-
rant throw from the catcher to the
shortstop as Rebecca Barnes, of
the Wewahitchka team, scored
the game's only run.


Other than that, the pitching
and defense basically put the Ga-
tors in a position to reach the Class
2A state championship game. But
in the end, it would come down
to a seventh-inning scoring drive
that ended with a game-ending
strikeout. Glades Day was in po-
sition to win after having runners
on second and third base, but the
opposing pitcher, Samantha Rich,
struck out the final two batters to
end the game.
"I knew it would come down
to who would make an error,"
Paez said. "Our offense shut
down and our defense held their
own, so when our shortstop mis-
handled the ball late in the game,
I figured it would be tough for us
to come back from that."
Rich struck out 18 Gators,
while allowing just two hits in the
tightly contested state semifinal
game.
Kailey Boss, a junior pitcher
who finished the season with
a 13-7 record with an earned
run average (ERA) of 1.16, was
equally impressive, allowing just
four hits to the opposing team.
It's worth noting that if not for
the error, then Boss might have
emerged the winning pitcher in


the contest.
"Kailey pitched an awesome
game," Paez said. "She did a great
job holding down a team that led
the state in home runs this year."
Boss, who helped lead the
team to an overall record of 21-9,
was proud of the team's efforts
in the game and throughout the
season.
"Everyone worked together as
a team, so going on the mound, I
knew I had the backup I needed
to take us to state," Boss said.
"Hopefully, we get to the state fi-
nal an win it all next year."
Glades Day, who was this
year's Class 2A-District 2A-13
runner-up and Class 2A-Region 2
regional champion, knows what
it takes to become state champi-
ons - the Gators achieved that feat
in 2004.
What helped the Gators make
the amazing run to the Class 2A
state Final Four was taking each
game one at a time, preparing in
a variety of ways.
"I made the mistake of one
year overlooking a team and did
not give them the respect they
deserved and it cost my team,"
Paez said. "Now when we play
games, we focus in on that team


and that team only. If we need to
slow down our batting or work
on a different defense for that par-
ticular team, then that is what we
do."
Also contributing to the suc-
cess of the program is that Glades
Day has a strong junior varsity
team, ,allowing the athletes to
train for the sport before playing
on the varsity level.
As opposed to the Paho-
kee and Glades Central softball
teams, whose players generally
don't have the luxury to play the
sport year-round, Glades Day
has that ability. Helping mat-
ters is that some of Glades Day's
players are from Wellington and
Loxahatchee, two areas that are
known for having a city league
softball program throughout the
year.
"Out of our 13 players on var-
sity, seven of them play travel or
summer ball," Paez said. "Since
most cities have some type of city
league softball program, I can't
really say that any of my players
have never picked up a softball."
Playing with much bigger
schools helped out in Glades
Day's run to the state tourna-
ment. The Gators played a total of
14 regular-season games against
teams with a higher classification,
including Clewiston, Royal Palm
Beach and Okeechbbee - the Ga-
tors defeated all three teams in
their contests this year.
"As a coaching staff, we al-
ways look for ways to challenge
the players," Paez said. "The best
way to do this is to go out and find
the best competition out there."
It has worked marvelously for
Glades Day, posting an 8-0 record
in district play during the regular
season. Also, after losing to Amer-
ican Heritage-Delray Beach in the
district championship, the Gators
avenged the loss with a 10-0 win
in the regional semifinals.
In the end, the girls showed
that they were deserving of reach-
ing their goal this year.
"I think all our coaches pre-
pared us as well as they could
for the state game," sad Amber
Martyn, a senior. "We played big-
ger schools and practiced longer
that anyone else. With those two
things, it helped is jell as a team


and allowed us to go a far as we
went."

New Fundraiser
PTO has a new fundraiser,
Recycle for Education! You have
received flyers in your mailboxes
today to send home. Please en-
courage your students to collect
phones and empty inkjet and
toner cartridges. A collection
box has been placed in the front
office. Unfortunately we have
started this fundraiser a bit late in
the school year, but hope to get
this really going next school year
and plan to have a contest for the
class that collects the most.
This is a easy fund raising


program (like Boxtops). It's easy
because there is absolutely no in-
vestment. To raise funds through
this program we just collect empty
printer Inkjet and Toner cartridges
and used cell phones. They pay
us cash for all listed cartridges
and cell phones we collect. They
have sent us collection boxes and
shipping supplies free. So there
are no costs. They accept most
printer ink and toner cartridges,
Laser fax cartridges and desktop
copier cartridges including the
Canon PC line of copiers. You can
look up exactly which are accept-
ed on the web site: http://www.
recycle4charity.com.
Every year over 400 million cell
phones, inkjet and toner cartridg-
es are thrown away, lets recycle
and earn money for Westside.

Henry County schools facing tough e

Hendry County schools facing tough times


Editor's Note: The follow-
ing item was submitted by
the Hendry County School
District.

Representatives from the Hen-
dry County School Board, and the
two collective bargaining units
representing teachers, Hendry
County Education Association
and support personnel, Hendry
Educational Support Personnel
Association met Thursday, May
8, 2008, to discuss the School
Board's financial situation.
The School Board's represen-
tatives and Chief Negotiators, As-


sistant Superintendent Scott Coo-
per along with Director of Human
Resources Steve Stinnett, outlined
the District's financial difficulties.
These problems are a direct
result of the recent downturn in
both the national and State econ-
omy.
The projected 2008-2009 bud-
get or "first calculation" is esti-
mated at three million dollars less
than the first calculation for this
school year.
This provides the District sub-
stantially less operating capital for
next year.
The present student enroll-


ment is at a ten-year low. Last
week's student enrollment was
512 less students than the dis-
trict's ten-year high.
The beginning "Fund Balance"
for this year's budget was $2.8
million, and represented 5 per-
cent of the district's revenue.
The same projected Fund Bal-
ance for next year is only $0.4
million and represents less than 1
percent of the projected revenue
for next year.
This year the District has expe-
rienced three waves of cutbacks
totaling over $1.6 million.
All parties agree there are


troubling variables that may still
negatively impact the next year's
budget.
These variables include: future
State cutbacks; additional student
enrollment shortfalls; unforeseen
increases in health insurance;
energy and fuel costs and poten-
tially lower property valuations
for 2009.
Both employee associations
and the School Board representa-
tives recognize the seriousness of
the situation.
Everyone realizes that the Dis-
trict must work under a balanced
budget and continue to protect


and preserve class size.
Every school and department
has been asked to make opera-
tional or programmatic cuts for
next year, but over 80 percent of
the District's -- ".1..- a ii ,. . repre-
sent employee salaries and ben-
efits.
It's impossible to trim the bud-
get without impacting employ-
ees.
All of the participants are
aware of the difficult decisions
and sacrifices that must be made
in the next few months.
There was a genuine feeling of
"We're in this together," and all


parties were committed to work
as a team, and to cause as little
long term damage to employees
as possible.
The primary concern was to
protect the classroom and our
students.
Together, all parties are look-
ing at several options.
The decisions will be made
, . , . .. , IIi . l, and shared with
those who are impacted first.
More information will be avail-
able for parents and the commu-
nity as it becomes available.


Pre-file now for 2009, and other news


The Hon. Kristina Kulpa,
Property Appraiser, would like
to remind you that you can pre-
file for your 2009 tax exemptions
now. You do not have to wait until
January 2, 2009 to file. If you file
early you can avoid the rush, the
waiting in line and perhaps even
forgetting to file and missing out
on the exemption.
Both of our office locations
maintain the same hours 8:30
a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through
Friday. Please stop by during
those hours and put your filing for
tax exemptions behind you.
If you have any questions on
pre-filing for 2009, you can call
our office in LaBelle at 863-675-
5270 or in Clewiston at 863-983-
3178. You can also go to our
website www.hendryprop.org for
additional information.


Don't lose your home-


stead
The Hon Kristina Kulpa, Hen-
dry County Property Appraiser
wants everyone to remember
that if you relinquished your
Florida Homesteaded property in
2007 and are applying for or have
already applied for homestead in
2008 you may be eligible for the
new "portability exemption".
The same applies to your
property relinquished in 2008 and
you are now pre-filing for 2009 on
a new homestead. If you qualify
for portability it will allow you to
carry your cap (Save Our Homes)
with you to your new Florida
property.
If you are upsizing, meaning
the market value of your new
homestead property is greater
than your old homestead prop-
erty you will be able to carry your
"Save Our Homes" benefit for-
ward up to $500,000.
If you are downsizing, mean-


ing the market value of the new
homestead property is less than
the old homestead property you
will carry the SOH benefit forward
based on a percentage of old to
new homestead up to $500,000.
You can go to our website
www.hendrypa.org and down-
load the information for what you
need to bring with you to pre-file
for 2009 homestead plus an appli-
cation for portability. If you have
relinquished your Florida home-
steaded home in 2007 or 2008 but
have not yet purchased another
home you can also download a
"Request For Removal of Tax Ex-
emption".
If you have additional ques-
tions please call our office and
my staff will be able to assist you.
In Labelle call 863-675-5270 and
in Clewiston 863-983-3178.

Hospitals across the coun-
try are celebrating National
Hospital Week (May 11-17)
and Hendry Regional Medical
Center is among them.
The celebration of National
Hospital Week began in 1921,
when a magazine editor sug-
gested that more information
to the public about hospitals
might alleviate their fears
about hospital institutions.
The idea caught on, and,
today National Hospital Week
is the nation's largest annual
health care event.
A full slate of activities is
planned for the employees
and medical staff at HRMC in-
cluding:
Monday, breakfast served
by administration. Proclama-
tion presented to hospital em-
ployees by Mali Chamness, Mayor
of Clewiston; Tuesday, Crazy Hat
Day, and Bingo in the cafeteria.
