2010 Candidate Questionnaires


Editor's Note: The following candidates
will be featured in the Aug. 24 primaries
and Nov. 2 general election. Listing in the
order received.
Name: Ron Zimmerly
Age: 46
Occupation: Hendry County Grants and
Special Projects Director until July 30, 2010. Fi-
nance Director for the City of LaBelle effective
July 1, 2010.
Family: Wife of 27 years, Flora. Four chil-
dren: Christopher (26), Jonathan (24), Angela
(21) and Gregory (19).
Seat you are seeking: Hendry County Conm-
missioner, District 4.
What motivated you to run for office?
The incumbent decided not to run. I've had a
successful career as a county employee. When
I originally went to work for Hendry County I
did so because I firmly believed I could make
a difference. I believe I have made a big differ-
ence and I believe I can make an even bigger
difference from the other side of the podium.


Why are you the best candidate? I know
the issues Hendry County is facing. I have an
excellent working relationship with the other
four Commissioners. I believe I can build a con-
sensus and help lead the board in the direction
it needs to take to address the challenges and
opportunities the county faces in the upcoming
four years. With my experience as a county em-
ployee, my experience in private business and
my work with a private, non-profit international
mission organization in a third world country, I
believe I am the best candidate.
What is the biggest issue facing our
community and how do you intend on
addressing it? The economy is the largest
single issue the county currently faces and the
high annual unemployment is an integral part. I
believe we need to continue to support our ag-
riculture as the largest single contributor to our
local economy but I also think we need to think
outside the box and attract other industries by
promoting economic development. I think we
need to streamline the entire process related to

Newly released
unemployment figures
sees Hendry at top of the
list
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Clewiston News
Of the approximately 17,000 people
in Hendry County's labor force, nearly
3,000 are without a job, the state's Agen-
cy for Workforce Innovation revealed this
week.
With the state mounting what look to
be the early stages of a recovery, posting
for the third straight month slightly im-
proved figures, Hendry County continues
hurting more than any other county in
Florida.
With a 16.1 percent unemployment
rate locally, the takeaway is that one out
of every six "employable" residents is
without work in Clewiston and LaBelle
and their outer-lying areas.
Figures show the unemployment rate
dropping by .3 percent this month across
the state. This has brought the unemploy-
ment number in Florida to 11.7 percent,
down from its peak above 12 percent in

attracting new business and the expansion
of existing businesses. We need to be more
aggressive in seeking out other businesses
and resolve any issues that would hinder
a business from locating in the county. We
also need to address any current needs of
existing businesses to help keep them in
business.
Who do you consider the "role
model" public servant and why? The
ultimate role model for any public servant
is a man who lived over 2,000 years ago,
Jesus Christ. He demonstrated humility and
yet was a powerful leader. The world as we
know it has been changed due to his life and
death. I am a firm believer in the completed
work of Jesus Christ and seek to emulate
Him in my daily life.

Name: Laura Smith
Age: 47
Occupation: Real Estate Broker
Family: Married for 25 years to Neil, 3
children, Nigel, Emily and Trevor (all in col-
lege) and 1 grandson Aiden.
Seat you are seeking: Hendry County
BOCC District 4
What motivated you to run for of-
fice? I am deeply concerned about the chal-


lenges that face Hendry County in these dif-
ficult economic times and know I have the
skill and ability to make a difference. I love a
challenge, and sincerely believe I can make
a difference in our community. I want to be
involved in the future of Hendry County and
to be a part
of the deci-
sion-making
process that
affects the
quality of life
of its resi-
dents.
Why are
you the best
candidate? I
am a confi-
dent person-
able leader
with a strong
financial Laura Smith.
background.
I am fair and
open-minded, and a financial conservative,
who believes if you need it we'll find a way
to get it, but if you want it you'll have to wait
until we can afford it. I respect the value of
a dollar whether it is mine or somebody
else's. I commit wholeheartedly to my goals
and as a Clewiston Chamber of Commerce
Board Member never missed a meeting in
5 years. I have also attended the Board of


County Commissioners Meetings (BOCC)
for the past 18 months to familiarize myself
with the issues in order to provide seamless
transition to the BOCC once I am elected. I
will work to support a "needs-based" bud-
get rather than a "wants-based" budget that
provides a high level of service to residents.
What is the biggest issue facing our
community and how do you intend on
addressing it? This would have to be the
decreasing revenues from property devalua-
tion and the resulting shortfalls in the bud-
get, a scenario all too familiar to many other
counties. My goal would be to find creative
ways to minimize spending and still main-
tain a high level of service to residents, and
to encourage new and diverse business to
Hendry County that would add to the tax
base and provide existing residents more
employment opportunities and less taxes.
Who do you consider the "role
model" public servant and why? State
Representative Denise Grimsley she is a
dedicated and loyal supporter of the smaller
and "forgotten" counties in our area. She is
tenacious and stands up for what she be-
lieves in and does not forget her supporters.
She is focused and does not waiver from the
goals she sets for herself and the District. She
is always available to listen and give feed-
back to voters.

Lake 0 residents warned about destructive lightning


Precautions advised for
Lake 0 communities

As insurers and homeowners keep a
close watch on the Atlantic Basin for hur-
ricane activity this summer, the Institute for
Business & Home Safety (IBHS) cautions
people in the Lake 0 area not to underes-
timate the destructive and deadly force of
thunderstorms and lightning, which occur
far more often and directly affect more of
the U.S. than hurricanes.
According to the National Weather Ser-
vice, every thunderstorm produces light-
ning. On average, 300 people are injured
and 80 people are killed each year in the U.S.
by lightning.
Thunderstorms are a dangerous weath-
er event and their destructive capabilities
should not be taken lightly. Property losses
related to lightning strikes exceed $1 billion
annually, according to insurance industry
data. These losses can range from damage
to expensive electronic equipment fires that
destroy an entire house or business.
For lightning protection, a whole-house/
building surge protector is the best starting


point for reducing the risk of damage.
It is important
to make sure
that it is either a
secondary surge
arrestor tested to
IEEE C62.11 or a
transient voltage
suppressor that
has been tested
to UL 1449, 2nd
Edition.
A number of
power compa-
nies have pro-
grams to provide
and install the
whole-building
surge protec-
tion. If this is not
available in your
area, consult a
licensed.
Howe ver r
for best results,
the protection
should extend
beyond the whole-

Dengue Fever makes its way into South Florida


Residents should be mindful
of mosquito-borne illness
By Pat Dobbins
Florida Department of Health
You've probably heard stories in the news
lately about Dengue fever. Dengue fever has
re-entered the United States after an absence
of 65 years. There have been reported cases
in Key West and now a suspected case is be-
ing investigated in Miami-Dade.
This potentially serious, mosquito-borne
illness had once disappeared from the Unit-
ed States.
Locally transmitted cases haven't been
reported in Florida since the 1930s. Any
cases in Florida since then have been found
in people who traveled outside the United
States, but more recently, the new cases


RM 'k\ r


have been found in people who haven't left
our borders.
The Florida Department of Health says
that in 2009 there were 27 confirmed cases
of dengue fever in Key West. Then in May
2010, dengue fever reappeared in Key West
and so far there are 16 confirmed cases.
The disease causes symptoms similar to
the flu, including a sudden fever with head-
ache, joint and muscle pain, severe pain be-
hind the eyes, and skin rashes. Nausea and
diarrhea can also occur.
Dengue fever is not spread from person
to person and is seldom fatal except to the
very young and the elderly who may have
other health conditions.
Additionally, people need to avoid mos-
quitoes by avoiding being outdoors just
before sunrise and just before sunset, wear
light clothing that covers most of your skin,
use insect repellent containing DEET, and


get rid of any standing water such as old
tires, buckets, etc, where mosquitoes can
lay their eggs.
Empty and refill bird baths, pet water
dishes, etc. on a weekly basis, because most
mosquitoes only need a week to breed!
There is no specific medication for den-
gue but the CDC says people who think
they may have dengue should consult their
healthcare provider, use pain relievers with
acetaminophen and avoid pain relievers
which contain ibuprofen, naproxen or as-
pirin.
They should rest, drink plenty of fluids
and avoid mosquito bites to prevent spread
of the disease.
Outbreaks of dengue occur primarily in
areas where certain types of mosquitoes
live. This includes most tropical urban areas
of the world.
Dengue viruses may be introduced into


Dengue fever is characterized by:


Fever
Rash
Muscle and
joint pains


Aedes aegypti mosquito


areas by travelers who become infected
while visiting other areas of the tropics
where dengue commonly exists.

Repentance!
Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
Most everyone knows the story of the
prodigal son as re-
lated by Jesus. This





young man took
his inheritance and
left home to spend
it his own willful
way. He squan-
dered it on sin and
finally ended up
living with the pigs
and even wanting
to eat their food. .
But one day he -
came to himself
and decided there Jackie Miller.
must be a better





way. So he picked
himself up and went back home to ask his
father's forgiveness. The father forgave him
and welcomed him back home.
The story well illustrates true repentance.
But there is a different version today.
Instead of people leaving the filth of sin
and going to their heavenly Father and home,
they want God to move into the pig pen with
them! They want to be Christians, sons of
God, but they want to continue in sin, too.




While they know that home is better in the
long run, they want to enjoy sin as long as
they can. And, of course, if God is there with
them, it almost seems like home.
This may be a crude comparison, but it
is true.
There are too many people who want to
"join" some church or make some religious
profession without forsaking all sin to follow
Christ. They think to be able to continue liv-
ing with at least some of their old sins, they
can still be Christians. But you forget one
thing, if such thoughts have crossed your
mind.
The prodigal's father didn't go to the pig
pen to wallow with him, and neither will
God come down on your sinful level. You
must change your mind about sin and get
out of it before you can be restored to the
household of God! That is God's plan for the
backslider (See Acts 8:22).
God's plan for the non-Christian is for
him to hear the "good news" (Gospel) that
Christ has died for your sins, was buried,
and arose from the dead, and is alive for-
evermore. The next step is to repent, die to


the practice of sin, i.e. regret that you ever
sinned and decide to restrain yourself from
sin in the future.
The next step is to Confess faith in Christ,
like the Ethiopian Eunuch, "I believe that Je-
sus Christ is the Son of God" (Acts 8:37).
The final step in becoming a Christian is
to be baptized (immersed) in water for sal-
vation (Mark 16:15-16); for remission of sins
to receive the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38); to obey
the Gospel (Romans 6:3-5, 16-18); to put on
Christ by faith (Galatians 3:26-27); The Lord
adds you to His church (Acts 2:47); and you
are to continue faithful (Acts 2:42); wearing
only the name "Christian" (Acts 11:26). This
is God's one and only plan of salvation as
taught by Christ and His Apostles.

Compound Probabilities
Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Science has developed a method of
studying odds called the science of com-
pound probabilities. Using this method, a
study was done to determine the odds of
one man in history fulfilling all the prophe-
cies recorded in the Scripture that point to
the Jewish Messiah.
There are over 300 Messianic prophecies
in the Scriptures. For the study, eight clearly
defined and specific Messianic prophecies
were chosen that were totally beyond the
human control of Jesus: (1) His place of
birth (Micah 5:2); (2) Time of birth (Daniel
9:25); (3) Manner of birth (Isaiah 7:14); (4)
Betrayal (Zechariah 11:12, 13); (5) Manner
of death (Psalm 22:16-18) Notice the detail
even down to the gambling for His robe; (6)
Piercing of hands, feet, and side (Zechariah
12:10); (7) People mocking (Psalm 22:7,8);
and (8) Burial (Isaiah 53:9).
The compound probability of just these
eight prophecies being fulfilled was found to
be 1 in 10 to the 17th power.
To better understand what this number
really means, take that many presidential
golden dollars and lay them on the face of
Texas. They would cover the entire state
almost two feet deep. Then, mark a single
golden dollar and drop it somewhere in the
state as you fly over it. Blindfold someone
and let him or her parachute in anywhere
they want. Allow them only one attempt to
try to find and pick up the coin you marked.
What chance do you think they would
have of getting the right one? It would be
just about the same chance that the proph-


ets had of writing these eight prophecies and
having them all come true in any one man.
Yet, Jesus fulfilled them all!
Now let's raise the odds using 48 proph-
ecies. If my math is correct and my zero
count accurate, the chances of one person
fulfilling 48 of the Messianic prophecies to
be 1 in 10 to the 157th power.
And to think, Jesus is reported to have
fulfilled over 300 prophecies! It would seem
to me that if you ran the numbers, it would
take more intestinal fortitude (my wife
doesn't like me to use the word "guts"!) for
someone to defend that Jesus is not the Mes-
siah, than to accept the fact that He is! The
science of probabilities speaks for itself!

Accused offender arrested


By Juan Lopez
The Clewiston News
Anthony Smith,
42, of Clewiston, was
arrested on July 4th
on charges of battery .
and lewd and lascivi-
ous behavior, victim
under 16. The case
was brought to the at-
tention of the Hendry
County Sheriff's Office
when a relative of the
victim placed a phone
call to the Sheriff's Of-
fice after receiving a
text from the victim
that she had been in-
appropriately touched
by the suspect the
night before.
The relative then Anthony Smith.
confronted the suspect
and a fight ensued.
The suspect was taken to Hendry Regional
Medical Center for treatment.
Sgt. Herrera was contacted and advised
by Sgt. Davis of the case and began to inves-
tigate further. He discovered that the suspect
was closely related to victim and that they
both lived in the same residence along with
other relatives. The victim stated that the sus-
pect had repeatedly touched her in the past
and had done so in the days leading up to his
arrest. Sgt. Herrera asked for and received


permission from the vic-
tim's guardian to place
the victim in the care of
relatives while the case
wwas being sorted out.
The guardian stated that
that she could and ad-
vised that the victim does
lie quite a bit. When the
suspect was interviewed,
he stated that the he had
never touched the vic-
tim at anytime and that
what was he was being
accused of was not true
and claimed ignorance
as to why the victim's
relative had beaten him.
The Department of
Children and Famnilies
was notified by Sgt. Her
rera and the Children's
Advocacy Center sent
a representative to in-
terview the victim. The victim advised that
representative of multiple instances of being
touched by the suspect. After the interview
was conducted, DCF advised Hendry County
Sheriff's Office that there were indications of
abuse in this case and that the victim's state-
ment was consistent with her interview with
DCF and Sgt. Herrera. As a result, the sus-
pect was arrested and is now being held in
the Hendry County Jail. No bound amount
was given.


Hendry County deputy


quits following incident


Implicated in Lee County
DUI case, Hendry deputy
resigns from post

By Patty Brant
INI Florida
Former Hendry County Deputy Timothy
Niedert has resigned from the sheriff's of-
fice after being arrested in Lee County for
a DUI on July 7.
It was his second.
His first was in the early '90s.
He had worked for Hendry County for
six years.
Coming on as a certified corrections of-
ficer and eventually becoming a road pa-


trol officer.
HCSO policy dictates that any officer
arrested or even receiving a citation is re-
quired to notify the sheriff by memo of the
situation.
In a criminal case like DUI, which is a
misdemeanor, the officer is placed on ad-
ministrative leave pending the outcome of
the case as well as an internal investiga-
tion.
"He was a good deputy who made a big
mistake," Chief Deputy Kevin Nelson said,
adding that it was a shame.
Had he not resigned, the chief deputy
said he would have been dealt with severe-
ly. Fired, in fact, according to policy.
"Deputies must be held to a higher stan-
dard," he commented.

Olde Cypress fails, acquired by CenterState


Local bank assumed by the
government, transferred to
winning bidder

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Clewiston News
CenterState Bank found out it had ac-
quired Olde Cypress Bank and its branches
just two days before its president and a
room full of FDIC representatives came
down to Clewiston and delivered the news
to employees.
What had occurred is simple: Olde Cy-
press was taken over by the federal gov-
ernment, more specifically by the Federal
Deposit Insurance Corporation's Office of
Thrift Supervision, and was just as quickly
transferred over to CenterState.
In an event that is happening more and
more around the country, the bank had
failed, and here was another coming in to
assume all of that former company's assets
and liabilities.
At 6 p.m. last Friday, the change was of-
ficial, and CenterState representatives met
with their new employees, assuring them
they would all keep their jobs, and explain-
ing the transition. The next day, employees
answered calls with: "Good afternoon Olde
Cypress Bank, a division of CenterState Bank,
how may I help you?"


CenterState
CenterState bank is based in Winter Ha-
ven and has locations in Leesburg, Lake
Wales, Okeechobee, and now Clewiston.
John Corbett, its president and CEO, de-
scribes the company as a "small town com-
munity bank."
"You won't find us in downtown Miami,
or Orlando, or Jacksonville," he said.
As far as the company's plans to expand
to Clewiston, Mr. Williams said it just made
sense and follows the company's mission
in catering to those smaller communities


around the state.
Additionally, the company recently
brought in John Williams, who will be head-
ing the Olde Cypress locations in Hendry
County from Okeechobee.
Addressing questions of whether de-
positors doing business with Olde Cypress
should be concerned about the acquisition,
Mr. Corbett and Mr. Williams both pointed
to CenterState's five-star superior rating by
Bauer Financial as proof that the new ven-
ture will not fail any time soon.
"We're a very strong bank financially,"
said Mr. Corbett. "Not a single deposit will
lose a penny. I think people understand this
now."
This is not the bank's first acquisition of
a failed bank. According to the CEO, Center-
State acquired the Ocala National Bank in
January of 2009, as well.


How locals will be affected
According to Mr. Corbett, there was very
little activity on Saturday once word got out
that Olde Cypress had been acquired by an-
other bank. People were not rushing to pull
their accounts from the bank.
The transition from one bank to the other
should be a seamless one for both custom-
ers and employees, the leadership team as-
sured. No employee lost his or her job as a
result of the change, and though there may
be some structural changes made later -- Mr.
Williams said he will focus on those possi-
bilities at a later point -- customers will con-
tinue banking the way they have been.
"It's a lot simpler than people realize.
They'll keep writing checks, using their deb-
it cards like they do, everything stays status
quo," said Mr. Corbett.
No changes will be made until October
1, promised Mr. Williams. That is when he
expects CenterState to begin implementing
changes once it has had a chance to prop-
erly review the company's operations.
"I don't have any idea how many people
we'll have October 1," Mr. Williams said.
The CEO could not say when or if the


Photo/Jose Zaragoza
Olde Cypress Bank was acquired by CenterState Bank through an arrangement
with the federal government.


Olde Cypress name will be changed, and
said that the focus now was on continuing
operations. He said CenterState didn't have
the luxury of time in planning a careful ac-
quisition and did in two or three days what
would normally take months.
CenterState had bid on the prospect along
with other banks, after the FDIC issued the
prospect, but did not hear back on the bid
until a few days before the acquisition was
to be done.
According to Mr. Williams, early reserva-
tions on the part of employees were eased
after the announcement.
"They've been under a lot of stress the


last several months," said Mr. Williams of
the employees. 'As hard as it is to have your
bank fail, now that it has, we can say," we
are a five-star bank.
Mr. Williams is looking forward to Cen-
terState delving more into broad-based
commercial banking, offering more incen-
tives to local businesses to come on board
as clients.
"I think the response has been great,"
said Mr. Williams.
Mr. Corbett agreed.
"Now they have the confidence that
they're customers of one of the strongest
bank in Florida."

TO ANOTHER INSTITUTION**
On July 16, 2010 (the "Closing Date"), the Office of Thrift Supervision
closed OLDE CYPRESS COMMUNITY BANK, CLEWISTON, FL, 33440 (the
"Failed Institution"), and appointed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corpora-
tion (the "FDIC") as Receiver (the "Receiver"). The FDIC, which insures
your deposits in its corporate capacity, arranged for the transfer of your in-
sured deposits) ('deposits") at the Failed Institution to another insured de-
ository institution, CenterState Bank Of Florida, N.A., Winter Haven, FL,
33880 ('the New Insbtution'). This arrangement should minimize any in-
convenience the closing of the Failed Insitution may cause you. Although
you may leave your deposits) in the New Institution, you must
take some action to claim ownership of your depositss.
1. How to Claim Ownership of Your Deposits
Under federal law 12 U.S.C. Section 1822(e) you must claim ownership of
your deposits) at the New Institubtion within eighteen (18) months from the
Closing Date. If you do not claim your deposits) at the New Insitution by
January 16, 2012, your deposits) will be returned to the FDIC by the New
Institution and you may not be able to claim the depositss, except as de-
scribed below in Section 2.
You may claim your deposits) at the New Institution by taking any of the
following actions within 18 months from the Closing Date. If you have
more than one deposit account, your action in claiming your deposit in one
account will automatically claim your deposits in all of your accounts.

writing a check on any account or having an automated direct deposit
credited to or an automated withdrawal debited from any account;
b. Executing a new signature card on your accountss, entering into a
new deposit agreement with the New Institution, changing the ownership
on your accountss, or renegobtiating the terms of a certificate of deposit
account;
c. Providing the New Institution with a completed change of address
form; or
d. Writing to the New Institution and notifying it that you wish to keep
your accounts) active. Please be sure to include in this notice the

You should know that bank drafts issued by the Failed Institution,
including officer's checks, cashier's checks money orders dividend
checks, interest checks, and expense checks, are all considered de-
posits and must be claimed within 18 months from the Closing
Date.
2. Failure to Claim Ownership of Your Deposits within 18 Months
If you do not claim ownership of your deposits) at the New Institution
within 18 months from the Closing Date, federal law, 12 U.S.C. Section
1822(e), requires the New Institution to return the deposits) to the FDIC
and the FDIC to deliver the unclaimed deposits) as unclaimed property to
the state listed in your address in the Failed Institution's records. If your
address is outside of the United States, the FDIC is directed to deliver the
unclaimed deposits) to the state in which the Failed Institution had its main
office. If the state accepts custody of your depositss, you will have ten
years from the date of delivery to claim your deposits) from the state in ac-
cordance with its unclaimed property laws. If you do not claim your depos-
it(s) from the state within the ten years, the funds will be returned to the
FDIC, and you will be permanently barred from claiming your depositss. If
the state declines to accept custody of your unclaimed depositss, you will
be able to claim your deposits) directly from the FDIC until the receivership
is terminated. However, please note that a receivership may be terminated
at any time. Once the receivership is terminated, you will not be able to
claim your depositss.
3. Your Deposit Relationship with the New Institution
The New Institution needs your correct address. If the address to which
this notice has been addressed is no longer your current address, contact
the New Institution to ensure that it has your correct address. Similarly, if
you have not been receiving account statements, or you have changed your
address, you should contact the New Institution. Remember, supplying a
completed change of address form to the New Institution will serve to claim
your depositss.
Your deposit agreement with the Failed Institution is no longer in force.
The New Institution will determine the interest rate it will pay on your de-
posit(s) and will notify you of its rate structure and the terms of your new
deposit agreement.
If you choose not to keep your deposits) at the New Institution, you may
withdraw your depositss. As stated above, if you have more than one ac-
count, withdrawing money from any one of the accounts will serve to claim
all of your deposits. If you have time deposits, such as certificates of de-
posit, please note that, in order to avoid interest penalbties for early with-
drawal, contact the New Institution immediately for information regarding
withdrawals from your accountss.
If you have a loan with the Failed Institution, and you would like to discuss
offsetting your insured and/or uninsured deposits) against the loan, you
must contact the FDIC immediately.
4. Challenging Your Final Insurance Determination
In the event you disagree with the FDIC's determination of your insurance
coverage as represented by the accounts) made available at the New Insti-
tution, you may seek a review of the FDIC's determination in the United
States District Court for the federal judicial district where the principal place
of business of the Failed Institution was located. You must file your re-
quest for this review no later than 60 days after the date on which
your deposits) became available to you at the New Institution.

cept legal holidays, at 3301 Gun Club Road, West Palm Beach, FL 33406 or

The District's agency action as set forth in the Staff Reports shall become

tions 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes before the deadline for fil-
ing a petion. The procedures for petibtioning for a hearing are set forth
below, followed by the procedures for pursuing mediation.

emitting decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) un
der Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The petition must

the Petition must also be mailed at the time of filing to the persons named
above at the address indicated. Failure to file a petition within the 21 days
of publication of notice, or other receipt of the written notice, whichever
first occurs first, itutes a waiver of any right such person has to an ad-
ministative determination (hearing) pursuant to Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Fla. Stat. as provided by Subsection 28-106.11(4) Fla. Admin. Code.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the ad-
dress indicated above at the time of filing.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Distnct=s acton is
based must contain the information set forth in Rule 28-106.201(2), Fla. Ad-
mmin. Code, including:
(1) Identification of the action being contested, includincluding the permit
number, application number, District file number or any other SFWMD
identification number, if known.

fected by the agency determination.
(4) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the
SFWMD's decision.
(5) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none,
the petition must so indicate.
(6) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specif-
ic facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the
SFWMD's proposed action.
(7) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends
require reversal or modification ofthe SFWMD's proposed action.
8) If disputed issues of material fact exist, the statement must also in-

action the petitioner wishes the SFWMD to take with respect to the
SFWMD's proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the material facts on which the Distnrict=s
action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise
shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule
28-106.301, Fla. Admin. Code. Because the administrative hearing process
is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a pebtion means
that the District's final action may be different from the position taken by it
in this notice.
The procedures for pursing mediation are set forth in Section 120.573 Fla.
Stats, and Rules 28- 106.111 and 28-106.401-405 Fla. Admin. Code. The
SFWMD is not proposing mediation for these agency actions under Secbtion
120.573. Fla. Stat. at this time.

No tournament fees help set Bass Busters apart


When Chris Fickey launched Bass Bust-
ers Florida in 1987, he had no idea that the
organization would still be active 23 years
later.
"We like doing it, but we didn't know
it would last this long," Fickey said. "Now
that it has lasted this long, I think we'll do
it for another bunch of years. Our mission
for the Bass Busters Team Tournament Trail
has always been to promote the positive ex-
perience of competitive tournament fishing,
good sportsmanship and professionally run,
economical tournaments, while providing
ample cash payouts for excelling anglers."
Tournaments are open to all ages, and
there are no membership fees. Competition
for the Gold and Silver divisions runs from
January through October, with the champi-
onships held in November. The Super Bucks
Division runs from May through September.

Gold Division team standings

The Bass Busters organization was
formed in Titusville in 1987. The group
began running competitive fishing tourna-
ments that year, as well as organizing and
promoting the "Florida Fishing Show" on
WAYK-TV (Ch. 56), hosted by Ficke. In
1988, Bass Busters sponsored tournaments
from Tallahassee to Cocoa to Clewiston.
The following year, Clewiston was claimed
as the home base for the majority of Bass


Busters' tournaments. Tourna-
ments have been conducted .
in Clewiston every month for
the past 20 years. To date, Bass
Busters has run more than 800 -.
fishing tournaments in Florida,
with more than 320 of them
held in Clewiston on Lake
Okeechobee.

Donated building to become


TKA's Clewiston campus


Jeffrey Loveland
President, The King's Academy
The King's Academy (TKA) is pleased to
announce the construction of a new multi-
purpose assembly and classroom building
generously donated by the Diocese of Palm
Beach. TKA is planning to open the 12,800
square foot building in time for the start of
the 2010 -2011 school year.
When completed, the new building will
house a 5,000 square foot, 400-seat audi-
torium, providing space for classes, chapel
programs, and small event performances.
The new facility will also house offices and
storage.
TKA is a nationally recognized private
Christian school serving approximately
1,200 students from preschool through 12th

January.
It is the third consecutive monthly de-
cline in the state's unemployment rate and
the lowest rate since October 2009, reports
AWl.
But the battle isn't won yet. While rank-
ing at the top of the list, Hendry County is by
no means alone in high ranking, with Flagler
and St. Lucie counties rounding out the top
three, at 15.4 and 14.3 percent respectively.
Neighboring Glades County reports that
12.1 percent of its workforce is without a
job -- a nearly full percentage point improve-
ment from the month before.
Nearby Palm Beach County reported
an 11.8 unemployment rate, although in-
dications from the Palm Beach County
Economic Development Office, which con-
ducted an independent study last year, are
that the Glades cities of Belle Glade, South


grade and is accredited by the Southern As-
sociation of Colleges and Schools, the As-
sociation of Christian Schools International,
and the Florida Association of Christian Col-
leges and Schools.
The King's Academy serves students and
their families across Palm Beach and Hendry
Counties at its main campus at Belvedere
Road and Sansbury's Way in West Palm
Beach, Florida, its Clewiston, Florida cam-
pus on Caribbean Avenue, and its satellite
preschool campuses in Greenacres, Palm
Beach Gardens, and Royal Palm Beach,
Florida. The King's Academy also provides
remote learning at TKAOnline.net.
More information about The King's Acad-
emy is available online at www.TKA.net and
www.TKAClewiston.net.


Bay and Pahokee see unemployment rates
between 30 and 40 percent -- which means
that roughly one out of every three residents
are without a job.
The reporting agency finds that the coun-
ties affected by the highest unemployment
figures experienced "seasonal declines in
agriculture and related industries."
This seems to be the case around the lake
area, with agriculture on uncertain terms
with the potential purchase of U.S. Sugar by
the state, as well as a focus from these in-
dustries to automate more and more jobs.
AWI reports that there are now 47 coun-
ties reporting double-digit unemployment
rates in June, up from 44 the previous month
- only 20 counties are reporting single-digit
rates.
"This continuing decline in Florida's un-
employment rate is another strong indica-
tion that our economy is improving," said
Cynthia R. Lorenzo, AWI director.
Hendry County, meanwhile, has less to
be enthused about.
