Baccalaureate sends students off


Annual program
congratulates
graduating students

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- The program
served as the community's fond
farewell gift to graduating se-
niors.
Parents and community
members and friends filled the
seats at New Harvest Church in
Clewiston last Wednesday, gath-


ering to send their graduating
class off to the real world.
Speakers from various area
churches participated, hoping
that the graduating class would
use the time to reflect and make
good decisions regarding their
next step in life.
Instead of focusing on the
fact that some of the students
would be leaving their homes
shortly and beginning their new
lives in college and elsewhere,
the speakers directed the young
men and women to do the best
that they can in their future en-


deavors.
The hour-and-a-half program
featured Clewiston Mayor Mali
Chamness and her fellow city
commissioners, and perfor-
mances by students.
Scholarships were also pre-
sented to several students. Jas-
mine Hawkins and Ebony Martin
received scholarships that night.
Rows of students wearing
their caps and gowns were seat-
ed at the center of the church,
listening intently.

missioner Julio Rodriguez. "They
deserve an applause tonight."
Mayor Chamness urged stu-
dents to always remember their
city.
"If you want to make Clewis-
ton a better place, come back
home," she said.
A few light-hearted moments
punctuated the evening's pro-
cession.
"Just a few short years ago, I
was sitting where you were sit-
ting," joked a grey-haired Com-
missioner Jimmy Pittman. "I'm


proud of you and I believe in
you, so you need to believe in

Harlem residents


prepare to patrol


Commissioner:
Residents tired of
break-ins

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- When Har-
lem residents met to discuss
vital community issues two
weeks ago, the most pressing
concern on their mind was
crime.
While normally the meet-
ings, hosted by the county, give
people a chance to express their
views on health care, or aca-
demic issues and other items of
importance, most were primar-
ily affected by a recent rash of
burglaries.
In the month-long period
preceding the' meeting, 29
breaks-ins were reported in the
community.
According to Hendry County
Commissioner Janet Taylor, the
residents had had enough.
Community members ap-
proached the Clewiston Police
Department about a local crime
watch, and enlisted the help of
Sheriff Ronnie Eee.
The Hendry County Sheriff's
Office is now in the process of
training Harlem residents on
a crime watch and citizens on
patrol program.
Last Thursday, Barbara
Brown, with the sheriff's office,
was in Harlem conducting the
first of the training sessions.
The 16-hour training ensures
that residents are prepared to
deal with a variety of scenarios
while keeping a close watch on
their streets.
Commissioner Taylor knows
the importance of community
'policing. Herself a former police
officer, having served with the
city of Clewiston for 12 years,
Ms. Taylor hoped that the crime


watch program would help to
drastically reduce the occur-
rence of crime in Harlem.
,Perhaps the most difficult
aspect of catching criminals for
law enforcement agencies is
following a good lead. When
people are not at home, and
their neighbors haven't seen
anything out of the ordinary, it
becomes almost impossible to
track down the culprits.
"They are the eyes and ears
for law enforcement," said
Sheriff Lee. "It's a good thing
for the community to 'get in-
volved."
According to the sheriff, vol-
unteers will be riding in patrol
cars, but will not carry firearms
with them. Volunteers also can-
not make arrests, but can re-
port crimes in progress, or sus-
picious activities immediately
and assist deputies.
Ms. Taylor also recognized
the work of the citizens who
signed up to help.
"They volunteered because
they care about their com-
munity," the commissioner
said. "Secondly, they want to
do something to help improve
the quality of life that people
have."
She believes the crime
watch program will make
prove the difference in being
able to catch the criminals.
"We will have citizens look-
ing out for other citizens," said
Ms. Taylor. "We know who
don't belong in our commu-
nity, when suspicion things
happen in our community. Our
residents thought it was time to
take action."

Senator Nelson meets in Hendry County


By Patty Brant
Just two days after three US
Congressmen touched base
with LaBelle residents on criti-
cal infrastructure needs, yet an-
other visitor from Washington
came to learn his constituents'
thoughts and needs.
On Friday, May 30, US Sena-
tor Bill Nelson held another of
his Town Hall meetings. This
one was at Flora & Ella's and
brought out the agricultural
community.
Florida Gulf Coast Citrus
Association Executive Director
Ron Hamel played host for the
event and characterized Sen.
Bill Nelson as a friend to Florida
agriculture who helped author
the original ag jobs bill.


The Senator explained that
the recently passed a biparti-
san Farm Bill passed by both
Houses benefits Florida by
adding specialty crops fruits,
vegetables and citrus as well as
and research money for cellu-
losic ethanol. The Senator said
he understands that people are
hurting because of the energy
price crunch and relayed the
story of shrimpers in Fernandi-
na Beach who came with their
catch and could not go back
out because they couldn't af-
ford the fuel.
He assured his audience
that the University of Florida is
involved in researching the pro-
duction of ethanol from non-
food sources. He said any type


of natural fiber can be used -
grass cuttings, bagasse, wood
shavings and the like. Every
community has access to cel-
lulose and distribution would
be simple. Previously, ethanol
could be mixed with gas in a
10-90 ratio. New methods are
increasing that ration to 85 per-
cent ethanol, 15 percent gas.
The Senator believes continued
improvements will contribute
to a drop in demand for oil and
its price.
He warned that its "time to
get serious" with 60 percent
of the United States' daily fuel
consumption coming from the
Persian Gulf, Nigeria and Ven-

Words of wisdom: Don't worry! Be happy!


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
There is a story of a man who
worried excessively. It showed
in his face and his posture: He
seemed to carry the weight of the
world on his shoulders. However,
one day this man changed. He
had a bounce to his step. It was as
if he had not a care in the world. A
friend asked what had happened.
"Well," he confided, "as you
know I have always been one to
worry. I have decided that this
is both unwise and unhealthy,
so I have hired someone to do
my worrying for me." "But how
much does this cost you?" the
friend asked. "Oh, about $1,000
a week," the man replied. "But
'how can you afford to pay this
man who worries for you?" was
the astonished response. The
man answered calmly, "That's his
worry!"
I wish it was that easy to get
rid of our worries! We worry


about big things and little. We
worry about the future. We worry
about the past. We worry about
our finances. We worry about our
family. Some of us literally worry
ourselves sick over some situa-
tion in which we have no control.
So, how can we rid ourselves of
this demon called worry?
First of all, we need to under-
stand that worry is not based so
much on an outer circumstance
as on an inner condition. Worry
comes not so much from what is
happening to us on the outside as
much as it comes from how we
process it on the inside.
This is not to minimize the
very real problems that many of
us face. It is to say that often our
worry reflects our mind set more
than it does our circumstances.
For some people, a bad hair day
is a real crisis, a cause of deep
personal anguish. For others of
us, a diagnosis of cancer can be
dealt with confidently with faith in
the love of God. It depends what


we have on the inside more than
what is confronting us on the out-
side.
Some years back psychologist
Richard Carlson wrote a best-sell-
ing book titled, "Don't Sweat the
Small Stuff." He was convinced
that most of the things we worry
over really aren't worth worrying
about. A famous speaker once
put life into perspective like this:
"You are born. That's big stuff.
You die. Big stuff. Everything in
between-small stuff!" Carlson's
book reflects that same perspec-
tive. In fact, the full title is, Don't
Sweat the Small Stuff-and It's All
Small Stuff.
Maybe life's not quite that sim-
ple. Still, one of the secrets of a
fulfilled life is to focus on the pres-
ent. Do not worry about tomor-
row," says Jesus, "for tomorrow
will worry about itself. Each day
has enough trouble of its own."
There's a lot of truth in that.
We don't know the future. We
may be worrying about some-


thing that will never happen. We
may be worrying about somne-
thing that will resolve itself. We
need to focus on today, and try
not to anticipate what may never
occur.
"Therefore I tell you, do not
worry about your life, what you
will eat or drink; or about your
body, what you will wear. Is not
life more important than food,
and the body more important
than clothes? Look at the birds of
the air; they do not sow or reap
or store away in barns, and yet
your heavenly Father feeds them.
Are you not much more valuable
than they? Who of you by worry-
ing can add a single hour to his
life?"
So this is the message that Je-
sus has for us today: Don't worry!
Be happy! Live in the present.
Always try to do the right thing.
God loves you. God will provide
for you.

By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
We used to enjoy eating at
one of the local restaurants. The
manager told us that his personal
budget would only allow him
to eat out a few times a week.
Then, one day, the restaurant
was closed. I knew this meant
a loss for the waitresses, cooks,
cleaning staff and the manager
himself. It was not the first time
I saw a business close here; nor
the first time I learned about one
closing nearby, or about hearing
of closings in great numbers on
1he news. Recently, one of our
commissioners shared some sta-
tistics about our region at a local
service club meeting. We have
the highest unemployment rate in
Florida, a great number of people
have no insurance, we are facing
losses of services with changes in
tax structures.
Each week we have people
"come to our Church and ask for
help with rent or utilities and I
have to explain that we are sup-
ported from outside of our com-
munity; our Church is too small
to be self-supporting and we de-
perd on others to keep our \\it-
5 h;re. Thatl'-rlrs cq.utrch
p+-- funds are irimited
I share what I can, fty' to hinir:


of where help might be available,
look for resources that are in short
supply and getting scarcer, have
few answers where what might
be requested is to be found. Our
economy seems to be interdepen-
dent: high gas prices means not
as much boating, higher costs for
fertilizers and tractor hours, fewer
or no vacations, limited business
trips and fewer or no times eat-
ing out. Now I am supposed to
be a purveyor of Good News and
hope! What, then, can be offered
during these times? As I was
checking out of a hotel one sum-
mer in France, I asked the desk
clerk to call a cab for the train sta-
tion. She told me "You can walk it
in about ten minutes." That was
something unexpected.
The hotel obviously didn't
have a contract with the cab
companies. She was also telling
me a way of saving a few dollars.
She, too, was living with higher
gas prices than I was used to pay-
ing (and still is fuel in Europe
is higher than our costs). In one
sense, she was telling me "We're
in this together-the economy is
tight- I'm on your side." I thanked
her; it was something very unex-
pected: "We're in this together."
I remermnber rationing .during the
,S CQhi"d W..rld!' War:' ratioiiil: c.i
food, ratiJcrning o ga).'oline, rni-l
ing of essentiall goods "


We had relatives who had a
farm, another who could help
with gas he was entitled to buy
but did not use, we had things we
did not need, and our extended
family traded around. We were
all in it together but we found we
had enough. There is a Biblical
account of the fist company of
believers who "were of one heart
and soul, and no one said that
any of the things he possessed
was his own but they had every-
thing in common. And with great
power the apostles gave their tes-
timony to the Resurrection of the
Lord Jesus and great grace was
upon them all.
There was not a needy person
among them they brought the pro-
ceeds of what was sold and laid it
at the apostle's feet; and distribut-
ed what was made to each as any
had need (Acts 4;33-35)" These
were poor people too; they lived
in a time of persecution for what
they believed, their land was oc-
cupied by a hostile and repressive
power, and the the little they had
was likely to be taken away from
them. In spite of it all, they lived by
their belief and they shared what
they did have. How many times I
have been grateful for someone
who knew how I was really feel-
ing.and said "I'm withyou." .,

tin of Tours, who was a Roman

legionnaire. One night a beggar
who was freezing during a cold
winter night came to him. Mar-
tin had his legionnaire's cope,
the large robe that he wrapped
around himself to keep warm. He
was moved and cut it in half, shar-
ing it with the beggar and saving
his life. He later realized that he
had to repudiate the things hedid
as a legionnaire; they were really
not his ways or those of the Lord
he cared to know.
He was not known for his pol-
ished manners or refined ward-
robe, but he loved people, lived
with them during their hard times
and shared what he had for the
rest of his years in the countryside
around Tours, France. He lived
and shared as a servant when
times were hard and shortages
were an everyday occurrence. He
knew that "We're in this together
- and God is in here with us, too."
I'm proud to serve a Church
named after him and to be a part
of that tradition. We're all in hard
times together God is here too;
in our moments of difficulty, in
our limits, in our fears and wor-
ries and when things seem to
be very bad. He has carried us
through other hard times and if
we follow He will.carry us again,
as we reach out, share, work to-
gether, keep our faith and never
lose hope.

Health care information you haven't thought about


By Elizabeth Whitmer,
RHIT, AHDI-F
Until the 20th
century, empha
sis was on th
medical care
of the sick and
mainly involved
physicians, nurs-ES mIae e pt
es, and hospitals.W h it m e r,
In the last centuryRHIT, A HDIIF,
significant -prog-


ress has been made in learning
about disease processes and all
the factors that predispose one
to disease and illness. Many new
techniques and instruments have
been developed to diagnose and
treat diseases.
Where once health was de-
fined simply as the absence of
disease, health now is defined
,as ihe. state of, complete physi-
cal, mental, and social well-be-


ing. In this more comprehensive
definition, consideration is given
to health care which includes
the prevention of disease and
health maintenance, in addition
to medical care which is curative
or palliative. With these chang-
ing attitudes toward health, the
public now considers health care
to be a right to which everyone
is, entitled regardless of financial
status.,


Today the health care delivery
system includes many different
kinds of practitioners, facilities,
and organizations working to-
gether to provide broad health
care services to patients. In my
articles I plan to help you familiar-
ize yourselves with the healthcare
industry and what it is all about.
Look for my upcoming articles in
this section of your newspaper.

Red Cross urges preparedness


WEST PALM BEACH-Hur-
ricanes took a two-year break;
however, this doesn't mean you
should take a break from pre-
paredness!
There's no guarantee that this
hurricane season will be as quiet
for the United States as the past
two seasons and America needs
to be ready. Fewer than expected
U.S. landfalls over the past two
years may have lulled some peo-
ple into a false sense of security
but we do know that being pre-
pared can save lives and property
during a disaster. The American
Red Cross urges everyone to dust
off their disaster supplies kit and
get prepared now!
"By taking three basic pre-
paredness actions you can get
"Red Cross Ready" for disasters
and other emergencies 1) Get a
kit, 2) Make a plan and 3) Be in-
formed," said Wilfredo Rosario,
Interim CEO of the American Red
Cross Greater Palm Beach Area
Chapter. "The Red Cross is also
here to help you get prepared for
specific disasters like hurricanes.
Even if you took action to prepare
last hurricane season, it's impor-
tant that you revisit and update
your communication plan and
check your disaster supplies kit
for expired items."
The American Red Cross
recommends the following pre-
paredness actions:
Get or assemble a disaster sup-
plies kit:
Gather enough emergency
supplies to meet your needs. A
portable kit, stored in a sturdy,
easy to carry, water resistant con-
tainer should have enough sup-
plies for three days. The Red Cross
also recommends having at least
two weeks worth of supplies at
home and to keep a smaller kit in
the trunk of your car. Check your
kit and replace the stock every six
months. Whether you purchase a
kit or choose to build your own,
your kit should include:
*A three-day supply of water
(one gallon per person, per day)
and ready-to-eat non-perishable
foods, such as tuna fish, peanut
butter, crackers, canned fruit,
juice boxes, etc.
*A manual can opener
*A battery-powered or hand-
crank radio, flashlight and plenty
of extra batteries
*A first aid kit and reference
guide
S*Prescription and non-pre-
scription medication items Cop-
ies of important documents,


including birth certificates, insur-
ance policies and social security
cards
-Cash. ATMs and credit cards
won't work if the power is out.
*Special items for infant, el-
derly or disabled family members
*A change of clothes for every-
one, including long-sleeved shirts,
long pants and sturdy footwear
-One blanket or sleeping bag per
person
*Emergency tools, including
tools to turn off utilities
*An extra set of home and car
keys
An extra pair of glasses or
contact lenses, extra batteries for
hearing aids
Pet supplies
*Prepare a Personal Disaster
and Evacuation Plan:
The American Red Cross urges
each and every household to de-
velop a household disaster plan.
Meet with your family to cre-
ate a plan. Discuss the informa-
tion you have gathered and why
it is important to prepare for a
disaster.
Identify two meeting places;
One right outside your home in
case of a sudden emergency, like
a fire, and one outside your neigh-
borhood in case you can't return
home.
Be sure to make advanced
preparations for your pets. Be
aware that pets may not be al-
lowed in shelters. Contact hotels,
motels, family members and ani-
mal shelters to see if they would
allow pets in a disaster situation.
Keep a contact list of "pet friend-
ly" locations. If you are asked to
evacuate, take your pets with
you.
Choose an out-of-area emer-
gency contact person. During or
after a disaster, it's often easier to
call long distance, especially if lo-
cal phone lines are overloaded,or
out of service. Family members
should call this person and tell
them where they are. Everyone
must know your emergency con-
tact person's phone number and
email address.
Tell your family about the Safe
and Well web site accessible at
all times via www.redcross.org.
The Safe and Well Web site is an
Internet-based tool that allows
those directly affected by a disas-
ter to let their loved ones know of
their well-being. People within a
disaster affected area are able to
select and post standard "safe
and well" messages. Concerned
family members who know the


person's phone number (home,
cell, or work) or a complete
home address can search for the
messages posted by those who
self-register.
Show and explain to each
family member how and when to
turn off the water and electricity
at the main switches. Turn gas off
only if instructed by local authori-
ties. Remember, if the gas is shut-
off, only a professional can turn it
back on.
Plan your evacuation route.
Use local maps and identify al-
ternate evacuation routes from
home, work and/or school. Know
where e going and how
you plan to get there before you
leave home.
Be informed:
Find out what types of disas-
ters are likely to occur in your area
and how to prepare for each.
Find out how local authorities
will contact you during a disaster.
Listen to local media broadcasts
or NOAA Weather Radio for the
latest storm conditions and follow
the advice of local authorities.
Contact your local American
Red Cross chapter for details
about community disaster edu-
cation presentations that may be
arranged or are available in your
workplace, school or community
organization..
Get trained in CPR and first aid
so you will know how to respond
to emergencies in the event that
help is delayed.
If you are told to evacuate, do
so immediately. You may choose
to evacuate sooner than alerted
if you think you may need addi-
tional time.
Know what to do if a hurricane
WATCH is issued:
Listen to weather updates
from your battery-powered or
hand-cranked radio.
*Bring in outdoor objects
such as lawn furniture, hanging
plants, bicycles, toys and garden
tools, anchor objects that cannot
be brought inside.
*Close all windows and doors.
Cover windows with storm shut-
ters or pre-cut plywood.
*If time permits, and you
live in an identified surge zone,
elevate furniture or move it to a
higher floor to protect it from
flooding.
Fill your vehicle's gas tank.
*Check your disaster supplies
kit to make sure items have not
expired.
Know what to do if a hurricane
WARNING is. issued:


*Listen to the advice of local
officials, and leave if they tell you
to do so.
*If in a manufactured home,
check tie-downs and evacuate as
told by local authorities.
*Secure your home by un-
plugging appliances and turning
off electricity and the main water
valve.
SIf you are not advised to evac-
uate, stay inside, away from win-
dows, skylights and glass doors.
*Do NOT use open flames,
such as candles and kerosene
lamps, as a source of light.
If power is lost, turn off ap-
pliances to reduce damage from
a power surge when electricity is
restored.

ing how individuals and families

ness and first aid kits, visit www.

Whidden running for Sheriff of Hendry County


Steve Whidden, a longtime
resident of Hendry County, has
announced that he will seek the
seat of Hendry County Sheriff
during this upcoming election
in 2008. Citing inadequacies,
out-dated practices and overall
mismanagement of personnel
and resources, Whidden said he
knows that he has the right mix
of hands-on leadership, practical
knowledge and ability to bring a
positive change to the Office of
Hendry County Sheriff.
Whidden believes he has his
finger on the pulse of the people
of Hendry County. Serving the
Sheriff's Office in many areas as
a Deputy Sheriff, Investigator, and
even now as a law enforcement
officer for the Clewiston Police
Department, he has dedicated his
career to the community in serv-
ing, protecting and most of all
listening to their needs. He feels
he has a "working" knowledge of
the issues facing Hendry County
residents and possesses the skills
necessary to implement change.
He was honored by the City
of Clewiston as Employee of the
Year in 2006 and recently received
recognition for his dedication
and service by the Federal Drug
Enforcement Agency. Whidden
said he knows that his experi-
ence will speak for itself. He has
been on the front lines in the War
on Drugs. Traveling as a Special
Agent with the DEA, he has seen
the international influence on lo-
cal crime. During his work in the
War on Drugs he orchestrated
countless arrests and convictions
while making many record break-
ing arrests. He was influential in
taking down a grow house in
Montura that yielded over 30,000
plants. This was the largest bust
in Florida history. His work also
carried him to Jamaica where
he infiltrated a Rastafarian Cartel


and removed over 2,800 pounds
of marijuana off the streets of
Clewiston.
His progressive thinking and
leadership has led to the forma-
tion of Narc-Scent, Inc., which
produces tools and products to
train law enforcement and edu-
cational institutions in areas of il-
legal drugs. His efforts have been
recognized and published in a na-
tional law enforcement publica-
tion (Law & Order, The Magazine
for Police Management Vol. 53,
No. 2 February 2005).
The people of Hendry County
have come to know Steve Whid-
den as a Deputy Sheriff, Investi-
gator, Special Agent, Patrolman,
husband and father. Whidden
feels he knows what needs to
change because he has been
there. His plans are not to bring
change from the outside in.
He wants change to come
from the inside out. With a practi-
cal approach to law enforcement,
Whidden said he wants to give
the citizens of Hendry County a
Sheriff's Office they can trust, de-
pend on and be proud of, adding,
"This is my home and I want to
do this for my family and yours."
He believes common sense
can only carry someone so far
before initiative must take over.
Whidden feels that his ideas are
not only practical, but necessary.
His goals are to equip the depu-
ties with the tools and training
they need to effectively do their
job. He wants to transition the
Sheriff's Office from a small, rural
agency into an accredited agency
that excels in professionalism,
service and performance.
A prominent area of concern,
according to Whidden, is that
the Sheriff's Office has become
dependant on other agencies to
"make-up" for the short comings
of this Administration. This has a


(


Officer Steven Whidden
wide range of effects: from other
agencies "footing the bill," pro-
longed response times, deflated
morale among the deputies and
most importantly the inability of
the Sheriff's Office to provide ad-
equate service and protection.
He believes the current struc-
ture of the Sheriff's Office must
change. By taking positions that
have lofty salaries and formless
job descriptions he plans to al-
locate that money to create new
positions to more effectively serve
some of the outlying areas of the
county.
He said he wants to restore the
trust and respect the community
once had in the Sheriff's Office as
well as strengthen working rela-
tionships with various groups and


Submitted photo


organizations that help to makq
Hendry County a great place to
live.
He knows what it is like to
dedicate your entire career to the
people of Hendry County and he
wants to provide the men and
women of the Sheriff's Office
the opportunity to live and work
in a community where they can
be appreciated and respected for
protecting their neighbors.
Whidden believes in a proac!
tive, hands-on and up-to-date ap7
proach to solving these problems:
Hendry County is growing and
changing rapidly. Steve Whid-
den believes that planning today
for what will happen tomorrow is
already a day too late.

Plan now for
November
It is time to organize your
schedule so that you can take
the time off during Thanksgiving
week to attend the Big "0" Hike
around Lake Okeechobee.
The Hike will, begin in Paho-
kee on November 22, and end at
Pahokee on November 30. That's
nine days of walking from 9 to 14
miles a day to make it all the way
around the lake. There is a little
bit of a challenge to this walk.
Hundreds of people have tried
over the years and (for some rea-
son) only about 20 to 30 percent
of the walkers manage to finish
the 9 days.
So plan now and get in shape
for November.

of Environmental Protection Bureau of Air Monitoring and Mobile Sources, 2600 Blair Stone Road, Mail Station #5510, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-2400. Any written comments filed shall be made available for public inspection. Ifwritten comments received result in a significant

A person whose substantial interests are affected by the proposed permitting decision may petition for an administrative hearing in accordance with Sections 120.569 alid 120.57 of the Florida Statutes (F.S.). The petition must contain the information set forth below and
must be filed (received) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department of Environmental Protection, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station #35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section
120.60(3). F.S., must be filed within 14 (fourteen) days of publication of the public notice or within 14 (fourteen) days of receipt of the notice of intent, whichever occurs first. Under Section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who asked the permitting authority for notice of agency
action may file a petition within 14 (fourteen) days of receipt of that notice, regardless of the date of publication. A 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 within the appli-
cable time period shall constitute a waiver of that person's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene in this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention will be only at the approval of
the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205 of the Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.).
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the permitting authority's action is based must contain the following information:
(a) The name and address ofL .....'. 'i1 1 and each agency's file or identification number, if known;
(b) The name, address and telephone number of the petitioner; name address and telephone number of the petitioner's representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how petitioner's sub
stantial rights will be affected by the agency determination;
(c) A statement of how and when the petitioner received notice of the agency action or proposed action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so state;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, as well as the rules and statutes which entitle petitioner to relief;
(f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the agency's proposed action; and,
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the agency's proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the material facts upon which the permitting authority's action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise slall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C.
Because thle administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the permitting authority's final action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice of intent. Persons whose substantial interests will
be affected by any such final decision of the pernutting authority on the applications) have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above.
Mediation is not available for this proceeding.

Section 7661d(b)(1), to object to issuance of any Title V permit. Any petition shall be based only on objections to the Title V permit that were raised with reasonable specificity during the 30 (thirty) day public comment period provided in this notice, unless the petitioner demonstrates
to the Administrator of the EPA that it was impracticable to raise such objections within the comment period or unless the grounds for such objection arose after the comment period. Filing of a petition within the Administrator of the EPA does not stay the effective date of any Title V
permit properly issued pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 62-213, F.A.C. Petitions filed within the Administrator of EPA must meet the requirements of 42 U.S.C. Section 7661ld(b)(2) and mist he filed with the Administrator of the EPA at: U.S. EPA, 401 M Street, S.W., Washington,
D.C. 20460.

tiaalth concanat certain levels of eposutre.
Thle laboratory analysis results for the TTHM sample collected in April 2008, Janu-
ary 2008, December 2007, and July 2007, now indicate a running annual average
TTHM concentration of 105.6 micrograms per liter (ug/L). Therefore, the Depart-
ment lias determined that this water system has generated a Maximum Contami-
nant Level (MCL) violation for TTHM's, since Table 3 of rule 62-550, Florida
Administrative Code (EFA.C.), identifies the MCL for TTHM' s as 80 (ug/L).
HEALTH EFFECTS
Some people who drink water containing Trihalomethanes in excess of the Maxi-
mum Contaminant Level (MCL) over many years may experience problems with
their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased chance
of getting cancer.
WHAT SHOULD CUSTOMERS DO?
This is not an immediate risk, however, until the problem is corrected, any custom-
ers who are concerned about their exposure to TTHM's may wish to use alterna-
tive sources of water for ingestion, such as commercial bottled water, or water
treated by an appropriate home water treatment device. Appropriate home water
treatment devices are those certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (DSF)
for reducing TTHM's in drinking water.
WHAT IS BEING DONE?
The problem will be corrected when the Seminole Tribe builds their new water treat-
ment plant on the Brighton Reservation. Construction is expected to be completed
in early 2008.

Notice and Public Explanation of a Proposed Activity in the 100-Year
Floodplain and Wetland
To: All interested Agencies, Groups and individuals
This is to give notice that Hendry County has conducted an evaluation as required
by Executive Orders 11988 and 11990 in accordance with HUD regulations at 24
CFR 55.20 to determine e the potential affect that its activity in the floodplain and
wetland will have on the environment.

Hendry County intends to undertake a project to be funded by two Florida Small Cit-
ies Community Development Block Grants (07DB-Z10 and8DB-A08). The pro-
posed project includes the construction of an Emergency Operations Center
(EOC) to be located on Congen Road, approximately 5 miles west of the City oa
LaBelle, in an unincorporated area of the County. The improvements also involve
the construction of water, sewer, and roadway improvements to serve the site.

work. This activity will have no significant impact on the environment for the fol-
lowing reasons:
The site for the Emergency Operations Center is being donated to Hendry County by
the South Florida Water Management DisticL The County's budget for this pro-
ject does not allow ample funda for the purchase of land for ths activity. The
County completed an extensive search for land tor this activity and this site is the
best location tor this achvity. The flood zones associated with this project are
Zones A and C. The work to be undertaken in the floodpain will not adversely im-
pact the environment
Although the project is located in the 100-year floodplain, the improvements cannot
be undertaken in any other location due to the scope of the project. There is,
therefore, no practicable afemaNtive.
The proposed improvements conform to applicable floodplain protection standards.
The proposed action will not affect natural or beneficial floodplain values, and
residents of the community will benefit from the prjecL At this time, there are ne
known mitigation measures that will be required. The County will construct onsite
water and sewer improvements to serve the EOC. Failure to provide for the con-
struction of the EOC and the related infrastructure improvements could result in
severe health and safety concems to the residents of Hendry County during an
unforeseen natural disaster.
Additional agencies involved in this project include the florida Department of Com-
munity Affairs and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Other
agnocis contacted sto date hiave been the Fodda Departmeont of Stlate,, Histosite

Using their swords


By Denise Hatton
Clewiston Christian
School
Sixth and seventh grade stu-
dents from Clewiston Christian
School took up their swords for an
all out competition on Thursday,
May 29. The battle was known as
"Bible Drills" and their real weap-
on was the ability to find things in
God's Word (better known as the
Sword of the Spirit).
When the school year began
last fall, students in Theresa Salva-
tore's sixth and seventhth grade
class began memorizing the
books of the Bible, namely where
to locate the 66 different books
found in God's Word. For the past
nine weeks, the focus changed so
that the students were challenged
to learn the answers to biblical


questions, such as "Where vvould
you find the story of the Resurrec-
tion?" or "When will God heal
our land?"
Ten students participated in
the three part drill. They had 10
seconds to locate the answers in
the following areas: location of a
specific book in the Bible- includ-
ing naming the books before and
after the requested book, finding
an event detailed in Scripture,
and finding the location of the an-
swer to a specific Bible issue. First
place went to sixth grader Mary
Gibson and second place went
to Jazmine Thompson, a seventh
grader.
When the drills were over, au-
dience members were offered the
opportunity to compete against.
the sixth and seventh graders.
Only a handful of students even


considered taking up their swords
against these seasoned swords-
men who could beat the 10-sec-
ond clock.
According to Mrs. Salvatore,
the purpose of Bible Drills is to
'make the Bible smaller' by tak-
ing away the fear of it. Prior to
the preparation the students look
at the Bible as something huge
and overwhelming. As they be-
gin to learn the books' locations
they find that they can navigate
through scripture. The Bible is no
longer something to be afraid of.
Mrs. Salvatore has 14 years of
experience with Bible Drills and
has taken teams to state competi-
tion many times. Her goal for next
year is to locate other schools to
compete against as a preparation
for state competition.

RAK Club racks them up


By Denise Hatton
Clewiston Christian
School
Students from Clewiston
Christian School racked up RAKs
(Random Acts of Kindness) and
made an impact at school, home
and in the community as 2,334
documented acts of kindness
were performed in the past eight
months. Each completed RAK
earned the student a 'link' in a
paper chain that was displayed in
the lunchroom during the school
year. Every class had a designated
color so the result was a colorful
reminder that being kind bright-
ens the lives of others!
On May 29, RAK Club leader
Denise Hatton recognized the
students from each class that per-
formed the most acts of kindness.
Class winners were as follows:
Payton Bryant and Dylan Cor-
ley, K-3; Jesse Eaves, K-4; Chloe
White, K-5; Morgan Tripp, first
grade; Jonathan Hatton, second
grade; Bryce Corley, third grade;
Whitney Thompson, fourth grade;


Monica Llossas, fifth grade; Lind-
sey Martin, sixth grade and Shan-
non Holcomb, seventh grade.
Mrs. Hatton congratulated the
student body for meeting two of
the three "End of the Year Chal-
lenges." Students were successful
in surpassing the goal of 2,222
RAKs (since this was CCS's sec-
ond year of being in existence)
and in having ell students in ele-
mentary school earn a RAK Club t-
shirt. The third goal, which wasn't
met, was to conduct more RAKs
off-campus than on-campus.
However, the students were com-
mended for touching 1,118 lives
off-campus compared to 1,216
on-campus acts of kindness.
Examples of off-campus ran-
dom acts of kindness include:
returning a shopping cart to the
store, thanking a clerk, assisting a
sibling with homework, visiting a
neighbor, working at Sugar Fest,
picking up trash, washing dishes
at home without complaining or
taking food to a shut-in. All of the
students showed great creativity
and compassion as they began


thinking of others and putting ac-
tions to those thoughts whether
at home, school, or out in the
community.
When the RAK Club began in
October, 2007, students and fac-
ulty were encouraged 'to think
of others and to impact the lives
of others through visible expres-
sions of unexpected kindness.'
Participation in the RAK Club was
voluntary, yet every student at
CCS chose to get involved and all
students in Kindergarten through
seventh grade earned a RAK Club
t-shirt which was provided by the
club sponsor, Beef 'O0 Brady's.
Students were required to per-
form four RAKs, with at least one
of them being done off-campus,
in order to earn a t-shirt.
Clewiston Christian School
desires to give back to the com-
munity that has been so generous
to them. Plans are being made
to expand the impact of the Ran-
dom Acts of Kindness Club when
classes resume in the fall.


School Happenings


New Fundraiser
PTO has a new fundraiser,
Recycle for Education! Please
encourage your students to col-
lect 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 an 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.

Lakeside Lions roar in flag football game


LastThurs-
day, the Pa-
hokee Patri-
ots took the
field against
the Lakeside
Academy Li-


~SLJkW

V
'I ~


ons in a flag football game
that had been hyped for
months.
The Pahokee Patriots,
coached by 3-time state
champion quarterback and
Belle Glade's own Curtis Hol-
ley, came to Lakeside Field
brimming with confidence.
This proved short-lived as
the Lakeside Lions held a
42-0 lead at half time.
At the conclusion of the
first half, game referee and
also the Patriots' coach,
Holley told Lakeside Coach


George Litinski that the Patri-
ots could not continue play
because of bus scheduling
issues.
When asked about the
lop-sided victory, Coach
Litinski said that his game
plan was simple: the Lions'
defense would shut down
the Patriots' passing game,
and rely on the multi-talented
quarterback Damien Lincoln
to power the Lions' offense.
The plan worked to per-
fection as indicated by the
final score.
Fans were entertained by
the talented and pretty Lake-
side Academy Cheerleaders,
who were disappointed that
they did not have the oppor-
tunity to perform their half
time routines.


Terriers defeat Sarasota 43-25


The Moore Haven Terriers
defeated Sarasota Out-of-Door
Academy 43-25 on Saturday night
in the annual spring game at Joe
Brown Stadium.
The Terriers ammassed 548
yards of total offense in the game,
led by quarterback Dalton Britt,
who went 13-20 for 255 yards and
three touchdowns. Xavier Fagan
led the receivers with 8 catches for
160 yards and two touchdowns.
Elazarus Blackmon had four
catches for 60 yards and scored a
touchdown.
Running back Fred Hall paced


the ground attack for Moore Ha-
ven rushing 23 times for 177
yards.
Erick Morales provided some
tough runs for the Terriers in re-
lief of Hall and provided several
tackles on defense.
Josh Patterson returned a
fumble 56 yards for a touchdown
in the second quarter and then
scored a 50 yard touchdown in
the fourth quarter in his lone car-
ry at running back.
"I was very pleased with the
offense," said Head Coach Jason


"We executed and played hard
for four quarters. The defense had
a couple of mental mistakes that
cost us some points but I think we
can easily fix those problems,"
said Bond.
"The key to our success for
next season will be having a
/ strong off season."
The Terriers will start sum-
mer weight training on June 9 at
6 p.m. and also plan to attend a
FCA Camp on July 10.

Smith leads Blue Devils to spring game win


Defense forces
critical turnovers

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE -- It is safe to say
that this, spring was decided by
the beginning of the second half
-- something the Pahokee Blue
Devils mastered all of last season.
Senior-to-be running back Vin-
cent Smith led Pahokee's rushing
attack with 64 yards on 11 carries
and two first half touchdown in a
18-7 victory over the Dwyer Pan-
thers.
Though the Blue Devils made
the win relatively easy, they actu-
ally played from behind much of
the first half, thanks to an early
4-yard rushing touchdown the
defense allowed with less than
three minutes in the game. Paho-


kee was trailing 7-0 at that point.
"We were missing tackles on
our first defensive drive," said
Blaze Thompson, the head coach.
"Dwyer marched down the field
with help from a 30-yard penalty.
"We had 'a late hit out of
bounds and a scuffle, which were
two 15-yard penalties," Thomp-
son continued. "Players were
in position but weren't making
plays."
Smith scored his first touch-
down of the game on a 6-yard
run with 6:25 in the first quarter.
However, a missed extra point
would allow Dwyer to cling to 7-6
lead.
Later in the first half, Paho-
kee's Doral Willis caught an inter-
ception from Dwyer as they driv-
ing toward the goal line with 6:51
in the second quarter, which led
to Smith's second rushing touch-


down, a 3-yard run, just three
plays later to give the Blue Devils
their first lead of the game, 12-7.
Nu'Keese 'Pete' Richardson,
a soon-to-be senior who started
at quarterback for the Blue Dev-
ils, led the passing attack as he
went 9-for-13 with 138 yards and
a touchdown. The 5-yard touch-
down pass, which put Pahokee
up 18-7, came early in the third
quarter to senior-to-be wide re-
ceiver Dexter Holmes, who led all
receivers with 62 yards on three
receptions.
The Blue Devils defense would
not let Dwyer score again in the
game as senior-to-be Norman
Griffith recovered a fumble while
Dwyer was looking to cross the
goal line late in the third quarter.
"They (Dwyer) were driving
toward the end zone and getting
the momentum back from us,"


Griffith said. "We had to take it
back from them, so I put myself in
position to get us the ball back."
Senior-to-be Jarvis Byrd helped
seal Dwyer's fate as he recovered
a fumble late in the fourth quar-
ter. Pahokee's defense forced
three turnovers in the game.
"We were able to get some
turnovers when Dwyer was in po-
sition to score," Thompson said.
"Dwyer is a good football team
and to hold them to one touch-
down speaks a lot about our de-
fense."
Senior-to-be Brandin Haw-
thorne, who led all Blue Devils
defenders with 12 solo tackles
and three sacks, couldn't agree
more.
"We never take any team light-
ly, so we had to step it up against
this team," Hawthrone said. "First
quarter, we started off sluggish


but we tightened our screws up.
We had to be more focused on
our jobs and step it up big time."
On the offensive end, a new
starting quarterback may have
emerged in sophomore-to-be
Emanuel Perez, who was pretty
solid in his first game with 32
yards on 3-for-7 passing and most
importantly, no turnovers. He
filled in for Richardson at various
points in the game.
"Manuel did his thing, he was
looking real good," Richardson
said. "He's a deep ball passer, so
he needs to learn to put his touch
on the ball on deep routes."
Richardson, who is also a wide
receiver and one of the nation's
top prospects, said he'll be men-
toring Perez throughout the sum-
mer as they prepare for a series
of seven-on-seven camps. Even-
tually, Richardson is hoping that


Perez will earn the starting quar-
terback position once the regular
season begins in September.
"We'll be in the weight room
a lot this summer and I'll have
him run a lot of drills everyday,"
Richardson said. "I'm basically
just taking him under my wing
right now. He's surrounded by
good people, so he'll be fine by
the time the season starts."
Perez was pleased with how
Richardson and the entire team
rallied around him when he was
in the game.
"Pete gave me some wise
words of advice, told me to stay
calm in the pocket and stay there,"
Perez said. "He told me basically
to just do my thing. I just thank
my team for helping me out with
what I had to do."

Nelson
Continued From Page 1
ezuela all world trouble spots.
Nigeria is an "accident waiting to
happen," he said. With its unpro-
tected oil industry already being
plagued by bandits. The US gets
12 percent daily oil supply from
Nigeria.
Our dependence on foreign oil
threatens our economic security,
he noted. With China and India
industrializing, the demand for oil
is multiplying.
During recent questioning of
the oil industry, the Senator said
an Exxon Mobil executive re-
vealed that the average cost of a
barrel of crude oil during typical
times is $55 per barrel. At this
time, oil is $135 per barrel. He
noted that this oil companies are
pocketing record profits. During


a recent 90-day period, Exxon
profited $12 billion in part due to
speculation buying and selling
oil futures contracts.
Concerns were raised about
China and India planning to drill
for oil off the Cuban coast. A
major spill off the Cuban coast
would result in serious detriment
to Florida. The Gulf Stream would
carry the slick to the Keys, up the
coast to Fort Pierce and across the
Atlantic. However, having no dip-
lomatic ties to Cuba adds to the
difficulty of the American govern-
ment is solving this problem. The
Senator injected a hopeful note,
saying there may not be oil that
far off the Cuban coast. However,
it will be a "hot potato" for next
President.
Sen. Nelson said he's been ad
"Johnny One Note" for years on
this issue and now the day of
reckoning is beginning. He said
the next President must take the


lead on the hard choices for oil
independence.
Environmental issues
Discussion on environmental
issues including funding for water
quality, agricultural Best Manage-
ment Practices, citrus canker and
greening research was lively.
Riverwatch's John Capece
recalled a Town Hall Meeting
several years ago when Sen. Nel-
son took a bottle of green water
from the Caloosahatchee River to
Washington to demonstrate the
waterway's dire condition. Con-
gress eventually passed the Water
Resources Development Act of
2007 (WRDA), overriding a Presi-
dential veto.
It was the first WRDA act to
be passed in seven years and au-
thorizes some $24 million in proj-
ects. Florida will get $1.8 million
in projects including restorations
in the Picayune Strand and Indian
River.


Sen. Nelson told his audience
that Florida and California have
the most water development
programs in WRDA. However,
funding must be authorized every
year.
Expanding on the issue, Sen.
Nelson said he has been to the
Picayune Strand and said the
success of the 1950s draining
to build roads and bridges for
homes was detrimental to the
Picayune Strand and nearby Fak-
kahatchee Strand, which is prime
panther habitat. Lowering the wa-
ter table changed the habitat, but
now plugging canals has raised
the water level and old vegeta-
tion is regenerating; panthers are
coming back.
Hugh English cited agricul-
ture's dependence on Lake
Okeechobee Florida's liquid
heart. He said the lake level was
at 24 feet. Now it's around 10 feet.
Sufficient water supply critical for


agriculture as well as the rest of
the population.
Sen. Nelson agreed. He said
CERP, the Comprehensive Ever-
glades Restoration Program, has
calculated the needs of six million
people in South Florida and ag.
He said he understands the need
to hold back water.
Just days before Senator Nel-
son's visit to LaBelle, US Con-
gressmen Tim Mahoney and
James Oberstar met with locals.
A major topic of concern was the
failing Hoover Dike around Lake
Okeechobee. Sen. Nelson agreed
Congress needs to set aside mon-
ey for its renovation, He said the
Corps is difficult to get started,
but acknowledged that we can-
not afford the strongest structure
there, but it can be made safe.
The Senator told the group to let
him know if the Corps is not do-
ing what they think it should "I
can get their attention."


Mr. Hamel cited the need to ac-
celerate the dike repairs and also
to return the lake to appropriate
levels. The Senator said last year's
dire hurricane prediction caused
the Corps to release water from
the, lake. The hurricanes did not
materialize and the seasonal rains
did not measure up, leaving the
lake level drastically low.
Immigration
On the hot topic of immigra-
tion reform, Sen. Nelson noted
that comprehensive reform is im-
perative, but people on both sides
of the issue are still passionate
about this topic. It will take Presi-
dential leadership to accomplish
it, he predicted.
The hosts for the Town Hall
Meeting were Gulf Coast Citrus
Association, Farm Credit of South-
west Florida and Hendry-Glades
Farm Bureau.
