"Committed to Faithfully Serving the Readers of Clewiston and Hendry County"


Vol. 85, Number 52 50 cents


Happy Fourth of July!

Everyone is in the patriotic spirit, with the Fourth of July holiday right around the corner.


Local EDCs work to 'Keep Hendry Green'


What agriculture,
technology and global
business mean to
Hendry-Glades

By Patty Brant
INI Florida
Green technology is the wave of the
future. And it's a wave Hendry-Glades
wants to ride.
Hendry County Economic Develop-
ment Council President and CEO Roger


Harrison has jumped into that green tech-
nology wave, with the hope of using it to
restore local prosperity. It's not all about
the long term, though, Hendry County is
looking for more immediate routes to a
firmer tax base.
For instance, Hendry County EDC
has applied for a USDA grant to set up
small business incubators in LaBelle and
Clewiston, called "Enterprise Hendry."
The LaBelle version will be created by
dividing the old garage at the EDC of-
fice into three or four small cubicles for
start-up businesses. They could share the
EDC board room and equipment like the


copier scanner and fax machine, as well
as a shared administrative assistant. An
eligible new business may stay for up to a
year then move out when they can sus-
tain themselves.
It would only work for certain types of
businesses, Roger realizes, but says we
have to start somewhere.
The EDC is also partnering with Good-
will Industries' new MicroEnterprise Pro-
gram. New business owners are able to
learn about how to create a successful
business and, upon completion, then be
paired with small business loan sources.
In addition, the Small Business Devel-


opment Center offers classes at a very
low cost, which may be subsidized by the
EDC, for prospective business owners.
The idea of an incubator is to provide
the time and resources for small busi-
nesses to get their feet under them before
they have to stand on their own. Once
the incubator is set up in LaBelle, Roger
said the EDC will then work getting one
in Clewiston.
Everybody thinks about attracting the
big companies, Roger said, but he be-
lieves in pulling in mid-sized companies

Thoughts about marriage
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
God created marriage for our happiness,
but also to help us mature. You cannot have
a fulfilling marriage without both of these.
It is impossible to be happy in a marriage
relationship without maturing. The joys of
marriage can only come to those of mature,
unselfish character.
Marriage is hard on people who are self-
ish because this is the number one reason
there are so many miserable marriages. It is
so imperative that both mates have a sensi-
tive, understanding servant spirit.
The central point in a happy marriage is
when two people are serving each other.
Woe is it to two stubborn, selfish individuals
trying to get the other to yield to their domi-
neering, bossy disposition. The real need
is to respect each other and to unselfishly
share with each other.
As a lad, King David of the Old Testament,
brought down that ugly giant. Many are the
potential ugly giants that defy the success
of a happy marriage. These giants are self-
ishness, insensitivity, pride and many other
immature, unconquered ways of life. Good
character choices will defeat these giants
when we choose them.
The late newspaper columnist, psycholo-
gisst and physician, Dr. George Crane, told of
a wife who came into his office full of hatred
toward her husband. "I do not only want to
get rid of him, I want to get even. Before I
divorce him, i want to hurt him as much as
he has hurt me."
Dr. Crane suggested an ingenious plan.
"Go home and act as if you really love your
husband. Tell him how much he means to
you. Praise him for every decent trait. Go
out of your way to be as kind, considerate
and generous as possible. Spare no efforts to
please him, to enjoy him. Make him believe
you love him.
After you've convinced him of your un-
dying love and that you cannot live without
him, then drop the bomb. Tell him that you
are getting a divorce. That will really hurt
him." With revenge in her eyes, she smiled
and exclaimed, "Beautiful, beautiful! Will he
ever be surprised!"
And she did it, acting "as if" with enthu-
siasm. For two whole months she showed
love, kindness, listening, giving, reinforcing,
and sharing. When she didn't return, Crane
called, "Are you ready now to go through
with the divorce?"
"Divorce!" she exclaimed, "Never! I dis-
covered I really do love him." Her actions
had changed her feelings and perhaps that
of her husband. Motion resulted in emotion.
To make marriage work, sometimes you
have to "jump-start" it. The ability to love is
established not so much by fervent prom-
ise as it is by continued effort and repeated
deeds.

The Fourth of July: recollee- In God we trust?


tions, blessings, promises
The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D. +
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
No, I wasn't there when Francis Scott
Key saw the flag flying over Fort Sumter and
wrote the Star-Spangled Banner, but I was
there at an American Embassy in Europe
when I saw the lines of people going around
the block and waiting for an opportunity to
come to the United States.
The flag flew over that embassy in a for-
eign land and stood as a silent witness of a
glorious past, a proud present and a future
with challenges that would be met with
American ingenuity and determination.
We celebrate the birthday of this nation in
a few days. I was fortunate enough to grow
up where a great deal of that history took
place and the countryside was permeated
with sites to reflect courage, determination,
faith, and love of country.
Places such as Valley Forge, Washing-
ton's Crossing (of the Delaware), Betsy Ross
House, seeing the Liberty Bell, Indepen-
dence hall where our nation's first capital
laid the foundations for the country; were all
visited during school trips or on weekends
during family outings.
My baptism took place at a Church where
our first Presidents attended and where
many of the founding fathers are buried.
A part of the greatness to be celebrated
on the fourth of July is the place faith had in
the lives of everyone who had a place in our
history; where our Constitution acknowl-
edges that religion has a place in our society
and where it's freedom is recognized.
Scriptures remind us of a challenge faced
by the Lord when asked about His relation
with the state. He was challenged to declare
if allegiance to the state was primary over
allegiance to God (Matthew 2215ff).
The Lord replies "Give to Caesar what is
Caesar's and to God what is God's (v.21)."
While spoken in the context of paying taxes,
it has always struck me as having a greater
meaning.
I believe we are to give to our country
what is it's rightful due; as we give to God
His rightful due along with it.
This would mean our allegiance, our
working to make things better when we see
things that we regard as needing interven-
tion, our thanksgiving for the blessings we
receive from our collectivity, our acknowl-
edging the unique place we have on this
earth, and our appreciation for somehow
beyond our control finding ourselves in a
place where we have been given so much.
We are to likewise give to God what is
due Him; our faith, allegiance, our working
and our worship; and thanking God for the
place where we can exercise that faith.
I believe we still have a way to go; but we
have been given the foundations and abili-
ties to work to bring in one day that King-
dom that God intends.
May we become that "one nation under
God" and may this holiday make us mind-
ful of our blessings, resolute in meeting our
obligations to God and others, and thankful
for the heritage, opportunity and lives given
to us all.


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
A pastor tol' a disturbing but true story
about a hunting party that ventured into the
woods in the northern part of Canada. As
some members set up camp, two members,
captivated by the beauty around them, went
exploring. Not paying attention, they found
themselves completely lost.
When the two men did not return to the
camp, an emergency protocol went into
effect. By the next day, a military helicop-
ter from the Search and Rescue Center on
nearby Prince Edward Island had flown in.
Local trackers were summoned. No one
panicked, but time became critical as the
weather turned cold and snowy.
The search continued for eleven days un-
til the two men stumbled into another group
of hunters who gave them shelter. Tragically,
during the night, one of the two lost men
died of hypothermia.
Two days later, the pastor who told this
story was asked to meet with the survivor
in the local hospital. The surviving man was
grateful to be alive, but was still grieving the
death of his friend.
He confessed to the pastor that on the
second day of the search, he and his friend
had heard the rescue helicopter coming to-
ward them, but rather than waving it down,
they hid from it. Why? Because they were
embarrassed by the obvious trouble they
were causing and were convinced they
could walk back to their campsite, claiming
they had not been lost at all. That tragic deci-
sion had deadly consequences.
How many of us have ever been lost, or
embarrassed to admit we needed saving? I
have. Has pride ever kept you from asking
for the help you may have needed? It has
me.
The good news is that even though I have
been guilty of the above, I've learned through
experience and the school of hard knocks
that there are times I just need to swallow
the pride of my independence and admit I
need help. Life goes better when I do.
The same is true in my faith walk. There
are times when I need to admit I can't do it
alone, that I need help; and at times need
saving. There were times when I needed to
get over my embarrassment, swallow my
pride, and do what I knew I needed to do.
Believe it or not, the church roof didn't fall
in when I did.
The good news in all of this is that the
pages of the Bible are punctuated with
promises from God that He will be an ever-
present help in our times of need. All we
have to do is trust Him.
In God We Trust. We inscribe those
words on our money, but do we embrace
these words with our lives? Our challenge
and our need is not just to trust God in some
things some of the time, but to trust God
with all things all of the time. Life goes better
when we do.

Here comes the rain, so here come the mosquitoes!


By Pat Dobbins
The Hendry and Glades County Health
Departments monitors for the presence of
illnesses carried by mosquitoes including
West Nile virus infections.
Protect yourself by using the 5 D's: Dusk
and Dawn That's when mosquitoes are
out and looking for the next bite! Avoid be-
ing outdoors just before the sun comes up
and just before the sun goes down; dress -


try to wear light clothing that covers most
of your skin; DEET use insect repellents
containing DEET, but talk to your healthcare
provider before you use this product on chil-
dren; and drainage check around your
home. Get rid of any standing water such
as old tires, buckets, etc, where mosquitoes
can lay their eggs.
Using repellent can help protect against
mosquito bitesw. Read label directions care-


fully. Some repellents are not suitable for
children. According to the CDC, mosquito
repellents containing oil of lemon eucalyp-
tus should not be used on children under the
age of 3 years. DEET is not recommended
on children younger than two months old.
Products with concentrations of up to 30
percent DEET are generally recommended.
Apply insect repellent to exposed skin, or
onto clothing, but not under clothing. In-


fants should be kept indoors or mosquito
netting should be used over carriers when
mosquitoes are present.
Here are some tips for getting rid of mos-
quito breeding sites around your home:
clean out the gutters; remove old tires or
drill holes in those used in playgrounds so
water can drain; turn over or remove empty
pots or buckets; and pick up all beverage
containers and cups after use.

FWC supports 'Operation Dry Water' for second year


Increased officer effort
reduces boating accidents
and saves lives
It may seem like an oxymoron, but the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) wants Florida waters to re-
main dry this summer. "Dry," as in free of
alcohol, that is.
"More than 26 percent of Florida's fatal
boating accidents in 2009 were the result of
alcohol or drug use," said Capt. Carol Key-
ser, of the FWC's Boating and Waterways
section.
"Boaters who have had too much to
drink or who are impaired by drugs are a
great danger to the boating public."
The FWC is making every effort to de-
crease the number of accidents to keep


Florida waters safe. This weekend, the FWC,
the U.S. Coast Guard and state and local
law enforcement agencies are participating
in "Operation Dry Water" a nationwide
public-education effort aimed at reducing
boating under the influence (BUI) incidents
and the number of alcohol-related accidents
and fatalities.
"We know that increased officer effort
reduces boating accidents and saves lives.
Saving lives is what 'Operation Dry Water' is
really all about," Keyser said.
2009 was the inaugural year for this effort.
Agencies in 51 states and U.S. territories par-
ticipated, and nearly 300 impaired boaters
were taken off the water before they could
kill or injure themselves or someone else.
The program's effectiveness last year led
to another year of the "Operation Dry Wa-
ter" effort this year.
Boating under the influence includes not


only the effects of drinking alcohol, but also
the effects that drugs prescribed and oth-
erwise may cause.
Being under the influence of alcohol or
drugs impairs a boat operator's vision and
reaction time. Sun, wind, fatigue and other
conditions can intensify the effects alcohol
or drugs have on a boater. Intoxicated boat-
ers are susceptible to injuries or falling over-
board because of impaired coordination
and balance.
'Anticipate increased patrols for BUI vio-
lators by the FWC and local marine units,"
Keyser said.
"We also will be educating the public
about other aspects of safe boating. In ad-
dition to remaining sober while operating
a vessel, boaters are reminded to abide by
all applicable navigation rules, have all the
required safety equipment onboard, and to
wear a life jacket at all times while on the


"If you're caught boating under the influ-
ence, you may be fined and jailed, your boat
may seized, and you could lose your boating
privileges," Keyser said. "But most impor-
tantly, you are risking your life, the lives of
your passengers and the lives of other per-
sons out on the water.
"We are setting the tone for the summer.
We want everyone to have a great time and
stay safe on the water," Keyser said.
"Boaters are responsible for making deci-
sions that keep themselves and others safe.
Drinking while operating a boat is a careless
decision that can result in a tragic ending to
an otherwise wonderful day on the water."

Meeting set for Port Mayaca to Sand Cut dike repair


Public information meet-
ings scheduled for July and
August

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jack-
sonville District released a Draft Supplemen-
tal Environmental Impact Statement for
Reach 1A Landside Rehabilitation on the
Herbert Hoover Dike Major Rehabilitation
Project, Martin and Palm Beach Counties.
The Corps will host a public information
meeting July 22 and accept written com-
ments through Aug. 10.
The National Environmental Policy Act
(NEPA) requires the Corps to prepare a
Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact
Statement (DSEIS) for renovations to a 4.9-
mile-long reach of the Herbert Hoover Dike
(HHD), which surrounds Lake Okeechobee
in south-central Florida.


This DSEIS proposes renovations to HHD
Reach 1A, Port Mayaca to Sand Cut, as part
of a major rehabilitation program endorsed
by local, national and international experts.
The final rehabilitation plan for Reach
1A is the Recommended Plan from the Fi-
nal EIS, HHD Major Rehabilitation Report,
Reach One (USACE 2005) with refinements
and modifications based on independent
technical review recommendations and ad-
ditional planning and engineering analysis.
The purpose of this DSEIS is to assess those
specific modifications for the landside de-
sign.
The HHD encircles Lake Okeechobee, a
730-square-mile lake in south-central Flori-
da, for the purpose of flood risk management
and other water management benefits.
The dike is divided into eight segments
or reaches for planning purposes. Reach 1,
a 22-mile section from Port Mayaca to Belle


Glade, is the area of the dike with the great-
est perceived risk of failure and impacts to
local population centers.
Major renovations to the HHD are neces-
sary to prevent dike failure and consequent
significant effects on public safety, infrastruc-
ture and natural resources in south Florida.
A failure in the dike may occur in Reach 1A
as a result of internal erosion (piping) from
seepage when lake elevations reach 17 feet
(NAVD88) or higher.
Providing meaningful opportunities for
public input is an important part of the
NEPA process. The public is invited to at-
tend a meeting July 22, 6:30 p.m., at the
Canal Point Community Center, 12860 U.S.
Highway 441, Canal Point, Fla. 33438.
The HHD team will provide a presenta-
tion on the Port Mayaca to Sand Cut rehabili-
tation plan, followed by an open comment
period. Attendees are welcome to ask ques-


tions at this time also. Interested attendees
can call (561) 683-1577 for Spanish transla-
tion or other special services.
The Draft SEIS for HHD Reach 1A is avail-
able for public review online at http://www.
saj.usace.army.mil/Divisions/Everglades/
Branches/HHDProject/HHD.htm.
Send written comments and suggestions
concerning this draft report by postal mail
or e-mail to Angela Dunn, U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers, Jacksonville District, Planning
Division, Environmental Branch, 701 San
Marco Boulevard, Jacksonville, Fla. 32207 or
to HHDEnvironment@usace.army.mil. All
comments must be received on or before
Aug. 10.

Veterans of Foreign Wars honor the American Flag


By Linda Meier
President Ladies Auxiliary
VFW 4185
The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW)
Post 4185 in Clewiston recently held the an-
nual Flag Day Ceremony. We would like to
thank our local Scouts for their participation
as well as all who attended.
For more than 200 years the American
flag has been a symbol of strength, unity,
pride and inspiration to citizens and a sym-
bol of freedom and equal rights to people in
foreign lands.
After 9/11 in particular, Americans "ral-
lied 'round the Flag" showing their patrio-
tism and love for our country. The VFW and
Ladies Auxiliary works with local teachers,
students and scouts to promote patriotism.
Military personnel deployed are fighting for
the American Flag and what the flag means.
We support our troops and the Flag.
In May 1776 Betsy Ross sewed the first
American Flag. On June 14, 1777 the Conti-
nental Congress passed the first Flag Act.
Between 1777 and 1960 Congress has
passed other acts changing the shape, de-
sign and arrangement to allow for addition-
al stars and stripes with the addition of new
states.
The 13 stripes represent the original 13
colonies; the stars represent the 50 states of


the Union. Red symbolizes hardiness and
valor, White symbolizes purity and inno-
cence and Blue represents vigilance, perse-
verance and justice. It is also referred to as
Old Glory.
The flag should never be dipped to any
person or thing and is flown upside down
as a distress signal. It should not be used as
a decoration or advertisement.
It should not be put on cushions, hand-
kerchiefs, napkins, boxes or any item to be
discarded after use. When the flag is low-
ered, no part should touch the ground or
any other object but should be received by
waiting arms and hands.
The Flag is saluted when hoisted and
lowered. You can get more information Flag
Etiquette and the Standards of Respect from
the internet or call the VFW Post and leave
a message for Linda Meier, President of the
Ladies Auxiliary if you have questions.
When the flag becomes worn, torn, fad-
ed or badly soiled it is time to replace it with
a new Flag. It is a dishonor to the Flag to dis-
play it in this condition. The old flag should
be "retired" with dignity and respect.
The VFW collects worn and torn flags
throughout the year and on June 14th holds
a solemn and dignified ceremony to retire
the flags by proper burning.

Guidelines for Display of the Flag


Public Law 94-344, known as the Federal
Flag Code, contains rules for handling and
displaying the U.S. flag. The language of the
federal code makes clear that the flag is a
living symbol.

Things to Remember
*Traditional guidelines call for displaying
the flag in public only from sunrise to sun-
set. However, the flag may be displayed at all
times if it's illuminated during darkness.
The flag should not be subject to weath-
er damage, so it should not be displayed
during rain, snow and wind storms unless it
is an all-weather flag.
*The flag should be displayed on or near
the main building of public institutions,
schools during school days, and polling
places on election days. It should be hoisted
briskly and lowered ceremoniously.
It should not be draped over a vehicle.
In a group of flags displayed from staffs,
the U.S. flag should be at the center and the
highest point.
*When the U.S. flag is displayed other
than from a staff, it should be displayed flat,
or suspended so that its folds fall free.
No other flag should stand higher than


The flag may cover a casket, but should
not cover a statue or monument for unveil-
ing.
During the hoisting or lowering of the
flag or when it passes in parade or review,
Americans should stand at attention facing
the flag and place their right hand over the
heart.

Out of respect for the U.S.
flag, never:
Let the flag touch anything beneath it:
ground, floor, water, merchandise.
Fasten or display it in a way that will
permit it to be damaged or soiled.
Use it for holding anything.
Use it as wearing apparel, bedding or
drapery. It should not be used on a costume
or athletic uniform. However, a flag patch
may be attached to the uniform of patriotic
organizations, military personnel, police of-
ficers and firefighters.
When the flag is worn out or otherwise
no longer a fitting emblem for display, it
should be destroyed in a dignified way, pref-
erably by burning.

PUBLIC NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE AIR PERMITS
Florida Department of Environmental Protection
Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permits
United States Sugar Corporation
Clewiston Sugar Mill and Refinery
Draft/Proposed Permit No. 0510003-032-AV
Draft/Proposed Title V Air Operation Permit Renewal
Draft Permit No. 0510003-031-AC
Draft Air Construction Permit Revision
Applicant: The applicant for this project is the United States Sugar Corporation. The applicant's responsible official is Mr. Neil Smith, Vice President and Gen-
eral Manager of Sugar Processing Operations. The applicant's mailing address is: Clewiston Sugar Mill and Refinery, United States Sugar Corporation, 11 1
Ponce DeLeon Avenue, Clewiston, Florida 33440.
Location: The United States Sugar Corporaton operates the existing Clewiston sugar mill and refinery, which is located in Hendry County at the intersection of
W.C. Owens Avenue and State Road 832 in Clewiston, Florida.
Project: Sugarcane is harvested from adjacent, neighboring and remote fields in Glades, Hendry, Martin and Palm Beach counties and transported to the mill
by train. In the mill, sugarcane is cut into small pieces and processed in a series of presses to squeeze juice from the cane. The juice undergoes clarification,
separation, evaporation, and crystallizaton to produce raw, unrefined sugar. In the refinery, raw sugar is decolorized, concentrated, crystallized, dried, condi-
tioned, screened, packaged, stored, and distributed as refined sugar. The fibrous byproduct remaining from the sugarcane is called bagasse and is burned as
boiler fuel to provide steam and heating requirements for the mill and refinery. Molasses is also produced as a byproduct. Molasses is stored and processed
into an animal feed product for sale.
The primary sources of air pollution consist of five industrial boilers (1, 2, 4, 7 and 8) that fire bagasse as the primary fuel and distllate oil as a startup and
supplemental fuel. Boilers 7 and 8 are also permitted to fire wood chips as an auxiliary fuel. Emissions of sulfur dioxide are minimized by the use of low sulfur
fuels. Particulate matter emissions from Boilers 1, 2 and 4 are controlled by wet impingement scrubbers. Particulate matter emissions from Boilers 7 and 8 are
controlled by cyclones followed by electrostatic precipitators. The largest boiler, Boiler 8, uses a selective non-catalytic reduction system with urea injection to
reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides.
United States Sugar Corporation submitted an applicabon to renew the Tite V air operation permit for the existing Clewiston sugar mill and refinery, which in-
corporates subsequent air construction permits. The project also includes the concurrent processing of an air construction permit revision for several underlying
conditions including the: removal of obsolete emissions standards, testing and monitoring requirements; removal of several conditions related to higher sulfur
oil since all units now fire low sulfur distillate oil; reductions of the maximum permitted steam production and heat input rates for Boilers 1, 2 and 4 based on
actual capacities; removal of obsolete test requirements for Boilers 1 and 2; removal of redundant steam production caps for Boilers 4 and 7; revisions of the
wet scrubber monitoring requirements for Boiler 4; modification of the general good combustion practices and startup and shutdown procedures for Boiler 4;
change in the frequency for sampling and analysis of wood chips for Boilers 7 and 8; reduce the test frequency for sulfur dioxide to before renewal of the op-
eration permit; and revision of the visible emissions test frequency for the lime unloading system.
Permitting Authority: Applications for air construction permits are subject to review in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 403, Florida Statutes (F.
S.) and Chapters 62-4, 62-210 and 62-212 of the Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.). Applications for Title V air operation permits are subject to review in ac-

ber is 850/488-0114.

tion for an administrative hearing is filed under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. or unless public comments received in accordance with this notice results in
a different decision or a significant change of terms or conditions.
Comments: The Permitbng Authority will accept written-comments concerning the draft air construction permit and the draft/proposed Title V air operation

fected by the permitting action. For additional information, contact the Permitting Authority at the above address or phone number If written comments or
comments received at a public meeting result in a significant change to the draft permits, the Permitting Authority will issue a revised draft permit and require,
if applicable, another Public Notice. All comments filed will be made available for public inspection.

of this Public Notice or receipt of a written notice, whichever occurs first. Under Section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who asked the Permitting Au-
thority for notice of agency action may file a petition within 14 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 bme of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition within the appropriate time peri-
od shall constitute a waiver of that person's right.to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sectons 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene
in this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the approval of the

A petition that disputes the material facts on which e permitting Authority's acton is based must contain the following information: (a) The name and ad-
dress of each agency affected and each agency file or idenbfication number, if known; (b) The name, address and telephone number of the petitioner; the
name address and telephone number of the petitoner's representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the pro-
ceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner's substantial rights will be affected by the agency determination; (c) A statement ofwhen and how the peti-
tioner received notice of the agency action or proposed decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petibon must so

upon which the Permitting Authority's action is based shal estate that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth
above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency acon, the filing of a petition means that the Permitting Authority's final ac-
tion may be different from the position taken by it in this Public Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permits. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by
any such final decision of the Permitting Authority on the application have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the re-
quirements set forth above.
Mediation: Mediation is not available in this proceeding..
EPA Review: EPA has agreed to treat the draft Title V air operation permit as a proposed Tite V air operation permit and to perform its 45-day review provid-
ed by the law and regulations concurrently with the public comment period. Although EPAs 45-day review period will be performed concurrently with the public
comment period, the deadline for submitbng a citizen pebtion to object to the EPA Administrator will be determined as if EPA's 45-day review period is per-
formed after the public comment period has ended. The final Title V air operabon permit will be issued after the conclusion of the 45-day EPA review period so
long as no adverse comments are received that result in a different decision or significant change of terms or condions. The status regarding EPA's 45-day re-
view of this project and the deadline for submitting a citizen petition can be found at the following website address: http://www.epa.goviregion4/air per-
mits/Florida.htm.
Objections: Finally, pursuant to 42 United States Code (U.S.C.) Secon 7661 d(b)(2), any person may petition the Administrator of the EPA within 60 clays of
the expiraton of the Administrator's 45-day review period as established at 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(1), to object to the issuance of any Title V air operation
permit. Any petion shall be based only on objections to the permit that were raised with reasonable specificity during the 30-day public comment period pro-
vided in the Public Notice, unless the petitioner demonstrates to the Administrator of the EPA that it was impracticable to raise such objectons within the com-
ment period or unless the grounds for such objection arose after the comment period. Filing of a petition with the Administrator of the EPA does not stay the
effective date of any permit properly issued pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 62-213, F.A.C. Petitions filed with the Administrator of EPA must meet the re-
quirements of42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(2) and must be filed with the Administrator of the EPA at: U.S.o
EPA, 401 M Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20460.

2009 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
South Shore Water Association/City of Clewiston
Este informe contiene information imuy important sobre agua de beber. Traduzcalo o hable con alguien que lo entienda bien.
We are very pleased to provide you with this year's Annual Quality Water Report. We want to keep you informed about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. This report is provided pursuant to Federal and State drinking
water requirements. Your water source is City of Clewiston Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment Plant, draws water from the Floridan Aquifer. After the RO process, the water is disinfected and fluoride is added to the drinking water. If you have
any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, or want to obtain a copy of this report, please contact the office at (863) 983-9830.
South Shore Water Association routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws. This table shows the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1st to December 31st, 2009, except
where otherwise indicated. For contaminants not required to be tested for in 2009, test results are for the most recent testing done in accordance with the regulations.
The FDEP conducted a SWAPP assessment of this water system in 2009. The assessment found petroleum storage tanks as possible contamination sources. The risk is moderate. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water
Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp."
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occurring minerals
and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-
products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can, also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for con-
taminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about
contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, peo-
ple with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropri-
ate means to lessen the risk of infection by cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

In this table you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the following definitions:
Action Level (AL) The concentration of a contaminant, which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements, which a water system must follow.
Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG)- the level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control
microbial contaminants.
"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/1) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (/pg/1) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Picocuries per liter (pCi/L) -measure of radioactivity in water

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. South
Shore is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by
flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps
you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.

as well and wants to help people already
invested in this county grow their business-
es. It's not an either-or, large or small busi-
ness situation, he stresses, adding that an
enterprise-friendly community is best for the
community.
He also believes that agriculture is a good
foundation for growing businesses and
wants to embrace our agricultural history to
help diversify our economic base.
"When we talk about innovation and en-
trepreneurship, farmers are some of the best
at both. If there is an opportunity for the ag-
ricultural community to introduce improve-
ments and inventions, we want to be able
to assist them with getting those ideas and
items to market," Roger said.

Keep Hendry Green
The EDC is implementing a county-wide
initiative.
"We're all in this together," Roger points
out. He adds that keeping the money local is
good for everyone. In fact, each dollar spent
in the community is turned over roughly five
times. By buying in Hendry County we all
support local business, local jobs and keep
our taxes here rather than disbursing them
to other counties.

Outlook
Even with the economy slowing, things
are happening.
At Airglades a lease option has been
signed with a company for a potential multi-
million dollar project. Economic develop-
ment projects like this one are extremely
sensitive, Roger said, and require a very deli-
cate touch.
If a large company is exploring reloca-
tion, there are many pitfalls when it comes
to confidentiality. The prospective company
needs to keep details, often including its
identity, very quiet or risk the deal falling
through. Remember, if a company is con-
sidering relocation to Hendry County, they
are leaving somewhere else, and that com-
munity would likely do everything it could
to stop the move. Also, if it becomes known
that a large company is interested in Hen-
dry-Glades, then a community with more
resources could step up with a sweeter deal.
Being secretive in these situations is simply
protecting the county's interests in positive
growth.
The Airglades project could break ground
as early as this fall if everything goes right.
It could provide residents with good paying
jobs and use/improve existing infrastructure
and resources.
If this project is successful, it would also
attract ancillary businesses that increase the
investment in the county five-fold.


As a small county, Hendry has limited
incentives to offer. However, these can be
extremely important to an industry that is
the right fit. Hendry can offer tax incentives
based on job creation and most of the coun-
ty qualifies as an Enterprise Zone, opening
the door to even more incentives.
Another plus for the county is that Hen-
dry has cheap land compared to many other
counties. Airglades is the most likely place
for large industrial type businesses in Hen-
dry, but it has deed restrictions and the land
cannot be given away as in some counties.
It must be leased at fair market value. The
only government-owned land in an indus-
trial park within the county is the Clewiston
Commerce Park. Upon city commission ap-
proval, with a large investment and job cre-
ation, the commission would be willing to
discuss land incentives with prospects.
Other drawing cards for Hendry include
accessibility, location and workforce.
Roger said about eight other projects are
in the works. Interest in Hendry County is
high. The fact that people are looking bodes
well for improvement in the economy, Rog-
er believes.
After just five months on the job, Roger
said he sees more activity than he expected
there would be for about a year into his em-
ployment here. Don't discount anybody, is
Roger's philosophy. Responding to every
inquiry is important.
Roger also feels that perhaps the eco-
nomic slow down is a blessing in disguise.
Grow too fast too soon, he said, and we
could lose who we are.
Roger points out that, once "on the road"
like the Germany trip, he is just a salesman
for the county. Economic development
a strategy for growth, and a tremendous
amount of preparation goes into having an
area we want to sell. He said he is learn-
ing about the area through total immersion
from "those who know."
He said the annual farm tour gave him a
very good feel for the county.
"We have a treasure in Gene McAvoy and
his staff. Having come from an Extension
background, I can tell you we are lucky to
have Gene," Roger comments.
"It's not just about bringing big com-
panies here," Roger said. He is concerned
about increasing local exports and making
connections with other people and commu-
nities that can help Hendry grow.

Germany
Roger and his Glades County counterpart,
Tracy Whirls, recently returned from Germa-
ny where they took part in the 2010 Green
Ventures Conference and Trade Show.
Florida's Heartland Regional Economic
Development Initiative (FHREDI) made the
trip possible through a grant and scholarship.
Roger and Tracy, with FHREDI Executive Di-
rector Lynn Topel were the only Americans
at the 2010 Green Ventures Conference and


Trade Show, although some American states
and companies had their German represen-
tatives there.
As the only Americans there, Roger said
they attracted quite a bit of attention and
made what could be some very helpful
contacts.
Roger met individually for 30 minutes
each with ten prospects, including private
industries from Spain, Italy, Egypt and a
University in Turkey. He also spoke with site
selection consultants from Germany, eager
to learn about the Florida Heartland and mu-
tual opportunities.
Roger related information on Hendry
County's available workforce, education, in-
centives and affordable land to attendees. In
a whirlwind of activity, the group met 180 of
the 220 attendees at their tradeshow booth.
For Hendry County, the emphasis was
on seeking out large industries that will go a
long way to expanding our tax base and job
market. "Mom and Pops" are always wel-
come, of course, but they are mainly local
residents.
The 50 countries represented were focus-
ing on green technology, a field this country
must work to catch up in.
The Hendry-Glades area is attractive to
businesses in other parts of the world be-
cause of its proximity to rail, port and high-
ways. Roger said they were also intrigued by
the area's agricultural background, especial-
ly prospects in ethanol production.
Coincidentally, an ethanol plant just
south of Clewiston is in the permitting stage,
Roger said. The $100 million plant will pro-
vide 50 direct jobs and another 250 support-
ing jobs in agriculture. This plant could be


Hendry EDC's first ground breaking since he
became director five months ago.
According to Roger, site consultants and
business representatives at the conference
seemed to be impressed with our offerings.
By the time the small local delegation re-
turned home, Roger said he already had two
e-mails from attendees waiting one from
a business; one about an exchange student
program.
Glades County EDC Director Tracy Whirls
agreed the trip was worthwhile and said the
area of Germany they visited is very similar
to Hendry-Glades. They have been making
use of renewable energy since 2002 and
provided 46,000 jobs in solar energy for their
residents.
She sees opportunities based on the Ger-
man experience and feels it could be dupli-
cated here.
Tracy said the Deepwater Horizon oil
spill may be expected to increase the cost
of oil and natural gas. This will create a huge
problem for Florida which relies heavily on
natural gas. She said it just underscores our
need for renewable energy.
Tracy said Hendry-Glades needs to ad-
dress the kinds of local, state and federal
policy initiatives that can make it happen.
If we increase available power, we in-
crease opportunities in Hendry-Glades, she
points out. But legislation is the first step
so the state can allow recovery of the initial
costs for solar energy.
It was "very clear" that German compa-
nies are interested in expanding to the Unit-
ed States and Florida, she added, and that
those attending were very impressed with
what Hendry-Glades has to offer.
