City officials offer layman
breakdown of budget basics
By Stankeisha Burchell
Special to the Clewiston News
It's everywhere. TV, radio, newspaper,
the bank, the grocery store, the barbershop.
That's right, capital. And where there's capi-
tal, there must be a financial plan, or what
most people so fondly refer to as a budget.
According to Oxford American Diction-
ary, a budget is an estimate of income and
expenditure for a set period of time. Also, it
is the amount of money needed or available
for a purpose.
The city of Clewiston is no exception.


City foregoes

Nov. election


Steve McKown is the city manager and is
responsible for overall city operations.
So what is a budget?
'A financial plan ... to keep an entity fi-
nancially stable," said the manager.
It is McKown's objective to offset cost
within workable bounds.
McKown, also a CPA, or certified public
accountant, with a Masters degree in Public
Administration, has been working with gov-
ernmental finances for a long time, he said.
Although the city is only in the preliminary
budget stage, McKown says there are good
signs for the year to come.
"We had an increase in sales tax which
means that our gross sales increased. This is
a good thing," he offered.
Why is this good? Well it means that peo-


ple are investing money in the city. It means
that people are spending money. It means
the economy is improving because more
taxes were collected in the previous year.
Except for one nagging issue: taxes col-
lected from slumping home values is down.
"Also, our property taxes decreased 17
percent, which means there was a decrease
in the amount of property tax collected,"
said Mr. McKown.
One of the major challenges finance
teams face is circumventing the need to in-
crease taxes for the residents. This is always
a challenge.
"What sets Clewiston apart is we have
a water and sewage fund and we have an

Why Fordt


Qualifying candidates
agree to terms
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Clewiston News
Clewiston voters in November will
have one less item to worry about -- that
for three seats on the Clewiston City Com-
mission.
Incumbent Commissioners Joey Mill-
er, Rick Miller and Jimmy Pittman were
scheduled to participate in the Nov. 2 elec-
tions, but all three agreed to scrap the cost
of holding an election and agree to the
terms of their office, with the blessing of
the city commission.
Had the qualifying candidates gone
forward with an election, the two candi-
dates receiving the greatest numbers of
votes would have served four-year terms,
and the candidate with the fewest votes
would have served a two-year term. The
three were facing no opposition for their
staes

Fish kills, though natural occurrences, need to be reported


Scientists intend to keep
track of locations of
reported fish kills
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission
X s reported by the Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC),
1 igh temperatures and cloudy rainy
days can spell trouble for fish in Florida's riv-
ers and lakes.
These conditions can cause fish kills,
which are natural occurrences and typically
do not cause permanent damage to the eco-
system or to fish populations.
Many factors can contribute to a fish kill.
Some fish kills are complex and involve a
variety of factors that may not be easily dis-
cernable.
However, most common causes of kills


'k\ r


in brackish estuaries, fresh-
water lakes and man-made
retention ponds are well un-
derstood by scientists. a
Fish kills are commonly *
caused by weather-related
factors. Sudden temperature
fluctuations or extreme temrn-
peratures can result in fish
kills any time of the year.
Hot weather during the
summer months can cause
fish kills because warm water
holds less oxygen than cold g
water.
In addition, a lack of rain
during hot-weather months lowers the water
levels in the system, heating the water and
further depleting the oxygen in the system.
Fish kills also can occur during extended
periods with little sunshine.
The process leading to these types of die-


offs begins with overcast
T g skies and rainy weather.
During extended periods
4 of overcast, rainy or cloudy
weather, the biological sys-
tem uses the dissolved oxy-
gen in the water faster than
it can produce it.
Rain water can com-
pound the situation by
causing vegetation, such as
dead leaves and grass clip-
pings, to wash into the sys-
tem and decompose.
The decomposition pro-
cess also can remove oxy-
gen from the water.
The good news is that most natural water
bodies are resilient to these types of fish kill
events.
It is important for FWC scientists to keep
track of the location and extent of fish kills


in natural lakes and estuaries to see if there
are serious problems developing in an eco-
system that might require investigation or
restorative measures.
People can only prevent fish kills by main-
taining good water quality. Once a kill starts,
there is nothing that can be done.
State and most county agencies cannot
clean up dead fish and private landowners
must undertake the task themselves.
Residents can report fish kills in natural
water bodies to the FWC at Nip' I, ir. It.
MyFWC.com/fishkill/submit.asp or call the
FWC Fish Kill Hotline at 800-636-0511.
It is not necessary to report fish kills in
man-made retention or private ponds to the
FWC.
For more information on fish kills visit
hi .. -- .. I .MyFWC.com and select "fish
and wildlife health" located under the "ex-
plore" section.

Ice Cream Prayers
Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Generally, we think of the acronym
ASAP as standing for "As Soon As
Possible." Maybe if we substitute
the words, 'Always Say A Prayer", we'll
begin to find a new way to deal with those
rough days we all encounter.
There's work
to do, deadlines to
meet, you've got no
time to spare, but as
you hurry and scurry,
ASAP: Always Say a
Prayer. In the midst of
family chaos, quality
time is rare. Do your
best; let God do the
rest, ASAP: Always
Say a Prayer.
It may seem like John Hicks
your worries are
more than you can
bear. Slow down and take a breather, ASAP:





Always Say a Prayer.
God knows how stressful life is; and
wants to ease our cares. He'll respond to
our needs, large or small even our desire
for ice cream!
A six-year-old was given permission to
say grace at a restaurant. He prayed: "God is
great and God is good, let us thank Him for
the food, and God I would thank You even
more if Mom gets us ice cream for dessert.





And liberty and justice for all! Amen!"
Along with the laughter from customers
nearby, a woman at the next table growled
loudly: "That's what's wrong with this coun-
try. Kids today don't even know how to pray.
The very idea of asking God for ice cream!





Why, I never."
Hearing this, the boy burst into tears and
asked his mother: "Did I do it wrong? I'm
sorry. Is God mad at me?"
The little boy's mother pulled him over
into her lap. She hugged him tightly and
assured him that he had done a terrific job






with his prayer and God was certainly not
mad at him.
An elderly gentleman walked over to the
table. He winked at the little boy and said:
"I know God really well. We visit every day
and I happen to know that God loved your
prayer. It may have been the best one He has
heard all day." "Really?" the little boy asked.
"Cross my heart," said the man.
Then he leaned over and whispered into
the little boy's ear. Pointing at the woman
at the next table who had made the remark
that started the whole thing, he said: "Too
bad she never asks God for ice cream. A little
ice cream is good for the soul sometimes."
Naturally, the mom ordered ice cream at


"I know God really well. We visit every day and I happen to know
that God loved your prayer. It may have been the best one He has
heard all day." "Really?" the little boy asked. "Cross my heart,"
said the man.
Pastor Hicks


the end of the meal. The boy stared at his
for a moment and then did something that
no one in the restaurant that day would ever
forget.
He picked up his sundae and without a
word walked over and placed it in front of
the woman at the next table.
With a big smile he said to her: "Here,
this is for you. Ice cream is good for the soul
sometimes and my soul is good already!'
People applauded and somewhere in heav-
en Jesus was smiling.

Risk Taking
Rev. Samuel S. Thomas, Ph. D.
Saint Martin's Church
ome of the hardest things I've had to
do was to watch a loved one suffer.
I remember vividly having to take
my daughter to the doctor for an examina-
tion that followed
a screening by her
school. Thankfully,
there was nothing
wrong. Afterwrds
she told me "Daddy,
I didn't like that!" I
told her that I didn't
like it either. Later, I
could only pray when
a loved one went into
shock and blood pres- Samuel Thomas
sure was temporarily
lost. I offered up many
prayerswhile waiting for things to stabilize;
my prayers were answered as I hoped. The
hardest thing was not being able to take the
place of the one who was suffering because
they were loved.
Those we care about give us the power to
take a willing risk of our own safety, well-be-
ing, comfort, life. This past week I attended
a conference among a group of profession-
als; and, like all professionals I know(and
most non-professionals too), they were con-
cerned about risk.
Every organization and every profession-
al, most of us in fact are concerned about
taking them. It seems to be a "given" in so-
ciety and touches so many things that we do
daily.
As the session continued, an attorney
who advised the group talked about limit-
ing risk, but not eliminating it. The presenter


ADJUST SPRINKLERS,
So You'RE NOT WATERING
THE HOUSE, SIDEWALK OR STREET.


posed the question "What are we to do?" I
answered "We are the people who take the
risk," and he acknowledged "You're right."
If you are willing to help others, you must
be willing to suffer for them; if you love
them, you must be willing to put it all on the
line for their well-being.
In other words; for us to share with any-
body, they must be thought of as if they were
our own family, our loved ones. Paul, in his
Hymn to Charity (1 Cornithians 13) does not
speak of a particular person when he de-
scribes "the greatest of things...love."
Rather he talks about what we do; being
kind, not proud, not self-seeking, not easily
angered. The more we "translate" our will-
ingness to care, to risk, to love..from those
we know best, to everyone we meet; the
more we fulfill that great commandment
that we "love one another as I have loved
you (John 13:34)."
The measure of that love? What havel
shared? What have I given? What have I
sacrificed that another might have a better
life? Did I take the risk? There is a Savior who
did and He changed the world by it. It came
with a cost: it gave us all a great victory.

2010 commissioner candidate questionnaires


Editor's Note: The following candi-
dates will be featured in the Aug. 24
primaries and Nov. 2 general election.
Listing in the order received.
Name: Al Perry

Age: 41
Occupation: Self Employed (I own and
operate an Income Tax office, a sod com-
pany and manage rental properties as well
as buy and sell Real Estate.)
Family: Married to wife Sissy for 17 years.
3 daughters Megan 23, Mandi 15, and Alee
11.
Seat you are seeking: Hendry County
Commission District 4

What motivated you to run for of-
fice? It is in my blood. I love working with
people to make things better and I love
where I live and want to see Hendry County
remain a great place to work and live.
We're losing a very educated and experi-
enced commissioner and I feel that with my
business background and my entrepreneur
visions, I could step in and do a great job for
the county.

Why are you the best candidate? I
will bring a fresh voice to our commission. I
have a vested interest in Hendry County, ev-
erything I own is here, and everything that
I've invested in is here. My family, friends
and future are in this county. I believe I could
be a great asset to our commission and will
work hard for the Hendry County citizens.

What is the biggest issue facing our
community and how do you intend on
addressing it? The biggest issue is the fu-
ture of Hendry County. I believe we are on
the verge of some major changes in this
county.
Changes that we have never seen before
that could have a major financial burden on
our county. We have to be smart with our
tax dollars! We have to focus on economic
development by bringing in new business
and new families here.
We live on a major crossroad in our state.
We need to promote this crossroad and edu-
cate others on what we have here and why
we love it here.

Who do you consider the "role
model" public servant and why? The
role model public servant is the person
that continually gives of themselves with-
out needing anything in return. We have so
many awesome citizens in this county that
fit this description and we are so fortunate to
have them here.

Name: Dwight Clinton Hatfield

Age: 60
Occupation: Self Employed- President
of Hatfield Homes, Inc., Treasurer of JD &


Dwight's Mobile Home Set-up, Builder, De-
veloper, Mobile Home Sales, Modular, Mo-
bile Home Set-ups, Realtor, and Finance
Specialist.
Family: Wife- Janet Hatfield, Sons- Clint
and Billy Hatfield
Office: County Commissioner Hendry
County District 4

What motivated you to run for of-
fice? I have great concerns for Hendry
County and its prosperity. I have been a
resident here since my family moved here in
1957. I believe we have the best to offer a
small community.
I want to help make the right decisions
through these tough times to catapult Hen-
dry County to the forefront of the place to
be; a good, clean place to live with opportu-
nities for all without crime and activities for
all ages.
I believe that through my life experience
and business experience I have had to make
the right decisions most of the time to sur-
vive.
I also feel like I have been here before.
My dad died when I was 22 years old and I
was thrown into running a business at that
time. I had to learn quickly and listen.
The tough times in the 70's and 80's are
very similar to the tough times we are facing
today. Banks are disappearing and we are
facing financial struggles and rapidly rising
interest rates.
I do not want to see that again. In the 70's
and 80's I paid 21% floor plan interest. To
put this in perspective I pay 6% presently. We
could see these times again. In those times
we also faced triple digit inflation, surviving
those times were tough. We need plans in
place to be prepared for what the future
holds.

Why are you the best candidate: I
think I am the best suited because of what
I have experience before. Through being a
mobile home expert, real estate broker, and
builder/developer deal with closing state-
ments, taxes, millage rates, property values,
assessments, financing, business plans,
budgeting, permitting (throughout south
Florida), and much more.
I deal daily with the residents and work-
ers in Hendry County I understand their
needs and the needs of Hendry County.
One of my goals is to fill all of our needs
to the best of my ability and as many wants
as I can. I know that I listen and try to get
as much information as I can; because my
ability to make a decision is only as good as
the information I have.
I believe there are people who make
things happen, people who watch things
happen, and people who wonder what hap-
pened. I am the person who makes things
happen.

What is the biggest issue facing our
community and how do you intend


on addressing it? The biggest obstacles
Hendry County faces are: budget, budget
restraints, employment (school employees,
law enforcement, county employees, small
businesses, new businesses) taxes, crime,
and quality of life.
Look to other counties and learn what
has been successful and what has failed. We
need to utilize organized groups in Hendry
County to pursue business to locate here.
My political role model is President
Dwight D. Eisenhower because I got my pic-
ture in the paper with a caption that read,
"Dwight taking a picture of Dwight," I was
only 6.
Thanks for your vote and support.

Strong Capital Position A bank's capital is the cushion that protects your
deposits from operating losses. Many banks tout that they are "well capitalized"
by regulatory standards. Our parent company, CenterState Banks, Inc., ended
2009 with a very strong Tier 1 capital ratio of 11.4o, which is more than double
the 5%o required to be considered "well capitalized."

Continued Profitability For the year 2009, CenterState Bank of Florida,
NA posted a profit of approximately $4.7 million. This is at a time when many
banks are experiencing unprecedented losses. These profits continue to build upon
our capital cushion.

FDIC Insurance Recent legislation increased the amount of deposit
insurance coverage per depositor from $100,000 to $250,000. In addition, certain
non-interest bearing accounts now qualify for unlimited coverage through the
FDIC. These changes are in place until December 31, 2013. We would be happy
to assist you in structuring your accounts in order to obtain even higher insurance
coverage. You may also review the FDIC informational video on our website.

Six Florida cases of Whooping Cough since Jan. 2009


Prevention of disease is
through up-to-date
immunization

Pat Dobbins
Hendry & Glades County Health Dept.
How many folks remember their
parents or grandparents talking
about whooping cough? It seems
to be making a "come-back."
Vaccination for whooping cough became
available in the 1940s and it should be part of
your family's vaccination schedule.
Healthcare providers will make sure the
children they care for are properly vaccinat-
ed for whooping cough which is medically
known as pertussis.
New parents, grandparents and relatives
should also get vaccinated before being
around a baby.
Whooping cough is a highly contagious
respiratory tract infection that can be a seri-
ous health threat, especially for infants. Fam-
ily members are usually the ones who pass it
along to infants.
A typical case of whooping cough starts
with a cough and runny nose lasting for
one-to-two weeks with cough gradually
becoming more severe, followed by weeks-
to-months of rapid coughing fits that some-


times end with a whooping sound.
Adults or older children in the homes
could have mild symptoms, so they may not
realize that they can pose a risk of transmis-
sion to other family members.
Whooping cough is contagious before
the severe coughing starts and can still be
contagious 2-3 weeks after the coughing first
started.
"There have been six cases of whoop-
ing cough (pertussis) in Hendry and Glades
Counties since January 2009 and recent
reports are showing that numerous states
are experiencing an increase in whooping
cough," said Pat Dobbins, Administrator for
the Hendry and Glades County Health De-
partments.
"It is important that parents discuss
whooping cough immunization or booster
with their healthcare providers."
Florida has 145 reported cases of whoop-
ing cough this year; 23 of those cases were
reported in infants less than three months of
age.
More than 900 cases of whooping cough
have been reported in California this year, in-
cluding five deaths in infants less than three
months of age.
The risk of death from whooping cough is
greatest in infants.
The best way to prevent whooping cough
is through immunizations. Infants and chil-
dren receive a series of 4-5 doses of DTaP,


a diphtheria, pertus-
sis, tetanus contain-
ing vaccine, with a
booster at 10 to 11
years of age.
However, pro-
tection provided by
the childhood series
fades over time.
All persons age
11 -64 can receive one
dose of Tdap, which
protects against
whooping cough,
tetanus, and diphthe-
ria. The vaccination
cannot cause pertus-
sis disease.
For more informa-
tion about whooping
cough, talk to your
healthcare provider
or local health de-
partment.
Additional infor-
mation about im-
munizations and
whooping cough
(pertussis) can be
found at www.im-
munizeFlorida.com
or www.cdc.gov/Fea-
tures/Pertussis/.

Draft Minor Source Air Construction Permit
Project No. 0510033-001-AC
H & H Liquid Sludge Disposal, Inc.
Hendry County, Florida
Applicant: The applicant for this project is H & H Liquid Sludge Disposal, Inc. The applicant's authorized represent
tive and mailing address is: Mr Rick D. Hacht, H & H Liquid Sludge Disposal, inc., P.O. Box 390, Bradford, Florida
32008
Facility Location: H & H Liquid Sludge Disposal, Inc. proposes to construct a new liquid sludge drying and disposa
system to be located in Hendry County at 3010 Evercane Road in Clewiston, Florida.
Project: The project consists of a Sludge Dryer & Processing System that includes one(l) Sludge Dryer, two (2) pro
pane/diesel burners (heaters), one (1) conditioner, two (2) tractor- engine driven mixers, one (1) metering screw
one(1) pelletizer, one(l) collection hopper, two (2) cyclones, one(l) inclined screw conveyor, four (4) transfer screw
conveyors and one(l) 18,000 gal. diesel storage tank. All components are located outdoors.
Note: The mixers are driven by a power takeoff from the road certified, wheeled tractors. The tractors operate in z
fixed (stationary) position while driving the mixers. The mixers are mobile, however are operated as fixed (stationary'
units when connected to load into a collection hopper that feeds the dryer. The tractor engine power sources are con
sidered as "insignificant emission" sources. The mixers are subject to the facility-wide visual emissions standard
(20%VE), and also are included in the sum of the fugitive emissions for the facility. The tractor engines are NOT sub
ect to the opacity rules, but can be included in the sum of the facility-wide fugitive emissions when required.
The facility is designed to receive 920 tons/day of biologically stabilized Class B municipal wastewater sludge operate
ing continuously 24 hours/day. (The sludge is typically processed by the municipal wastewater utilities in anaerobic
digesters, chemically conditioned with cabonic polymers, dewatered in centrifuges, loaded into containers and trucker
to the H & H facility.
The process includes receiving municipal liquid refuse waste sludge to a mixer, then flow to a metering screw, to E
pelletizer, to a collection hopper, and gravity dump into an M2 Dryer. Flow from the dryer to a conditioner unit, then
to mechanical screw conveyors to truck loading or portable tote bins. The dryer (20 mmbtu/hr) is rated at 10 tons/hr
and utilizes two (2) heaters which are primarily fueled by diesel with the option of using propane. Annual production
is 177,840 tons. Annual fuel usage is approximately 1.165 Million gallons.
Fines (light particulate matter) is vented from the sludge dryer to two (2) high efficiency cyclones that drop the
"fines" into mechanical screw conveyors that load portable tote bins for off-site processing or disposal.
Dried final product from the sludge dryer and conditioner is stored in static piles on the ground. A front-end loader
loads open container trucks to distribute the class AA Biosolids to volume users. (The fugitive emissions from storage
and truck loading are less than 5 tons of particulate matter (PM) per year.
This project is defined as a NESHAP classification and a Title V facility due to hazardous mercury (0.9328 tons/year'
contained in the source emissions.
This project is also subject to the applicable federal provisions regarding air quality as established by the EPA in the
following sections of Title 40 in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). This facility is classified as a Title V source
subject to National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Pollutants (NESHAP). Each emission unit is subject to Emission
Guidelines (40 CFR Part 60), (40 CFR Part 61, Part 63) and 40 CFR Part 61 Subpart E National Emissions Standards
for Mercury, adapted by reference in 62-204.800(10)(b).3 FA.C., and Standards of Performance for Volatile Organic
Liquid Storage Vessels, 40 CFR Part 60, Subpart Kb.
Emissions include CO, NOx, S02, PM, VOC and HAP (Mercury H114). There are no fugitive emissions at the dryer anc
fugitive emissions for the process facility do not exist or are insignificant and less than 5.0 tons/year, and kept to E
minimum at all times. Potential emissions for mercury are 0.9305 tons/year.
Note 1: Facility-Wide or Multi-Unit emissions Cap for Mercury (H114), Allowable emissions 3,200 grams/24 hrs. or
7.05 lbs/24hrs. (Reference 40 CFR 61.52).
Note 2: There are no fugitive emissions at the dryer and fugitive emissions for the process facility do not exist or are
insignificant and less than 5.0 tons/year, and kept to a minimum at all times.
Permitting Authority: Applications for air construction permits are subject to review in accordance with the provi-
sions of Chapter 403, Florida Statutes (ES.) and Chapters 62-4, 62-210 and 62-212 of the Florida Administrative
Code (F.A.C.). The proposed project is not exempt from air permitting requirements and an air permit is required to

issue a Final Permit in accordance with the conditions of the proposed Draft Permit unless a timely petition for an ad-
ministrative hearing is filed under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. or unless public comment 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 proposed Draft Permit for a per
od of 14 days from the date of publication of this Public Notice. Written comments must be received by the Permittinc
Authority by close of business (5:00 p.m.) on or before the end of the 14-day period. If written comments received
result in a significant change to the Draft Permit the Permitting Authority shall revise the Draft Permit and require, i
applicable, another Public Nobce. All comments filed will be ma e available for public inspection.
Petitions: A person whose substantial interests are affected by the proposed pert
lifting decision may petition for an administrative hearing in accordance with Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. Th
petition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed with (received by) the Department's Agency
Clerk in the Office of General Counsel of the Department of Environmental Protection at 3900 Commonwealth Boule-
vard, Mail Station #35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000 (Telephone: 850/245-2241). Petitions filed by any persons
other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), F.S. must be filed within 14 days of publicaon o0
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 Authority for notice of agency acton may file a petition within 14 days of receipt o0
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 appropriate time
period shall constitute a waiver of that person's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sec
tons 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene in this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent in-
tervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the approval of the presiding officer upon the
filing of a moon in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, F.A.C.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Permitting Authority's action is based must contain the follow
ing information: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file or identification number, ii
known; (b) The name, address and telephone number of the petitioner; the name address and telephone number oi
the petitioner'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 pettioner's substantial rights will be affected by the agency determination;
(c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the agency action or proposed decision; (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, including the specific facts the pettioner contends warrant reversal or modificaton o0
the agency's proposed action; (f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reverse
or modlficaton of the agency's proposed action including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific
rules or statutes; and, (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action the 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
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 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 Public Notice of Inteni
to Issue Air Permit. 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 fort above.
Mediation: Mediaton is not available for this proceeding.

Lake holding steady
Lake Okeechobee's water level is holding steady at around 14 feet, dropping
this week just slightly to 13.97 feet. Heading into hurricane season, water
managers prefer to have a slightly lower lake level with the threat of active
stormy events looming.

Clewiston AYSO soccer to host British soccer camps


Camps will provide players
with professional advice
and training

Players who participate in the American
Youth Soccer Organization in Clewiston will
have a chance to learn soccer techniques
from a team of international experts in Au-
gust.
Challenger Sports British Soccer Camps
will conduct camps for kids 3 to 16 years of
age from Aug. 9-13 at Sugarland Park soccer
field. Kids ages 3-5 will meet from 9 a.m. to
11 a.m. each day, while those 6-9 and 10-16
will meet from 9 a.m. to noon. The cost is
$89 for the week for ages 3-5 and $103 for
ages 6-9 and 10-16.
Each day of the camp includes individual
foot skills, technical drills, tactical practices,
small-sided games, coached scrimmages
and a daily World Cup Tournament. The
coaching staff will also provide kids with les-


sons in self-discipline, good sportsmanship
and respect for others and for the game.
AYSO offers a fun and safe environment
in which children can learn to play soccer.
Everyone plays a minimum of 50 percent
of each game, as players will not learn the
game by sitting on the bench. Every season,
teams are designed to be as evenly balanced
as possible.
Coaches can be some of the most influ-
ential people in a child's life, so AYSO re-
quires that they create a positive experience
for all players and model good sportsman-
ship, rather than a win-at-all-costs attitude.
Registration is open to all players ages 4 to
16, regardless of ability. Interest and enthusi-
asm are the only criteria to play.
AYSO started in Clewiston in 1998, and
since then 850 players have participated in
soccer. Last season there were 220 kids play-
ing soccer.
The players are divided into various age
group divisions: U5, U6, U8, U10, U12 and
U 14/16, and they play age-appropriate small-


sided games.
All games are played at Sugarland Park
in Clewiston. The season runs from August
to November and ends with a Jamboree.
All players receive trophies at the end of the
season.
Registration for the 2010 fall soccer sea-
son is conducted at the Clewiston Youth
Center, Monday through Friday between 8
- 5 p.m., until Aug. 2.
Registration fees are $65 per child, which
includes your child's insurance, a ball, uni-
form and trophy.
New players will need to provide a copy
of their birth certificate. Shin guards are
available for $10.
For more information, call 863-805-0125,
email clewsoccer@embarqmail.com or vis-
it the website (www.clewistonayso.org).
Clewiston soccer is an all-volunteer orga-
nization and we always welcome new vol-
unteers, coaches, referees, team parents or
board members.
No experience is necessary.

Racer earns spot in motocross national championships


Annual championships is
'World Series' of motocross

Clewiston's Brandon Westberry, 18,
qualified for the largest amateur motocross
race in the world, the 29th Annual AMA Am-
ateur National Motocross Championships.
Only the top winners in area and re-
gional qualifiers earn a spot and Westbury
took on over 20,000 hopefuls from across
America to earn one of just 1,386 qualifying
positions.
"The Amateur Nationals is the event ev-
ery motocross racer wants to be in," said
Event Director Tim Cotter. 'A win here gives


a rider instant notoriety and can be spring-
board to a professional motocross career."
The track that Brandon Westbury will
race on is located in a section of Loretta
Lynn's Ranch and Campground in Hurri-
cane Mills, Tenn.
The course itself contains a variety of
jumps, corners, and other obstacles that are
designed to test the skills and stamina of the
racers.
Brandon Westbury will be making the
trip to Tennessee with his parents, Greg and
Dana Westberry, where he is confident that
he will claim the top spot.
The race runs Aug. 2 7, 2010.

Challenges

electricity fund," McKown explained. "With
the electric fund, they make a payment in
lieu of tax since by Florida law they are not
required to be taxed. In lieu of them not pay-
ing taxes, the city receives a dividend. From
there, [monies] can be taken from the elec-
tricity fund and put into the general fund to
offset costs."
McKown is committed to keeping the city
budget within operable parameters to sati-
ate city government function as well as ap-
pease city residents.
"What has set us apart is having one
more area of diversification that keeps the
bill off of the taxpayers a lot more so than


other communities," Mr. McKown said.
And he isn't alone inside of Hendry
County in that objective. The neighboring
community of LaBelle has its own similar
challenges.
Ron Zimmerly, finance director for the
City of LaBelle, is also intimately familiar
with the process.
"It is always a challenge to balance the
budget without raising taxes," says Zimmer-
ly. In LaBelle, just as in Clewiston, property
values have taken a dip in the national reces-
sion, so counting on those taxes is a thing of
the past.
"The County is trying to stay at the same
millage rate that they had last year and
the property values have gone down. So
that means that the amount of money that
they are receiving for ad valorem taxes has


shrunk just as the two cities have shrunk
even though the millage may stay the same.
So the amount of money that the city and
the county has to run on is considerably
less," he explains.
In order to keep that same millage or
amount of tax revenue, funds would have to
be cut somewhere. The difficulty comes be-
cause expenditures such as insurance pre-
miums or other employee benefits may vary
from year to year. These types of allocations
are beyond the control of budget officials. If
these expenses go up, the budget may be
affected adversely.
The question becomes where to cut
-- which departments or services could be
trimmed down some. Should employees
receive a cost of living increase in the face
of a budget that just doesn't lend itself to be-


ing balanced, or should a local municipality
make do with having less employees at city
hall, or, worse, the police department?
Throughout the country, large cities have
targeted non-essential programs such as
public pools, and stories have been writ-
ten about dozens being closed in cities and
counties to save the money normally needed
to operate them. As an anecdote, that does
not exist in Clewiston, where Recreation Di-
rector Lance Raimer finds himself keeping
the pool open well into the night to capture
the revenues that the pool generates.
So the two local cities continue studying
where to cut back and where to spend. Bud-
gets for both are expected soon, though not
before each has taken a magnifying glass to
the financial spreadsheets.
"It's a balancing act," said Mr. Zimmerly.

Glades County to house world's largest solar panel project?


FPL in talks with local
leaders to site 100
megawatt solar project

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
FPL is in advanced discussions with
Glades County leaders to site a 100 mega-
watt solar panel project in Glades County.
Two years into discussions about the proj-
ect, the company is hoping that legislation
will make the possible $400 million invest-
ment a reality.

Photovoltaic Power
According to Tracy Whirls, Glades Coun-
ty Economic Development director, if built
the project will be similar in technology to a
solar project in Desoto County, which made
national news this year when President Ba-
rack Obama toured the site and encouraged
FPLs work in developing and pursuing alter-
native energy systems.
The Glades County site will be capable of
producing four times the power of its sister
project -- easily making it the world's largest
-- and will output almost double the capac-
ity of sites in Spain and Germany, two na-
tions which have been leading the charge in
producing solar projects.
The technology driving the new project
is known as Solar Photovoltaic, which fea-
tures the same solar panel technology found
on orbiting satellites, but rather than placed
on an electronic appendage, the panels are
laid out in neat rows on a field to capture the
sun's energy.


Possible site
FPL has identified a field located at the
intersection of State Road 78 and State Road
29 in Glades County, on sod farm property
owned mostly by Lykes Brothers for the
project. The area on which the panels will
be installed is approximately 1,000 acres.
According to Ms. Whirls, the company
said the site is a good location for the solar
panels, both for the cost of locating in rural
Glades County, and based on studies which
show that the land is perfectly suited to the
technology.
The company has reportedly been in ne-
gotiation with Lykes Brothers for the prop-
erty and has internally generated a survey of
the site. Aside from its plans in Glades Coun-
ty, FPL is also working with Hendry County
to construct a 7.3-mile long transmission
line to hook the panel project up to the local
power grid to feed the generated electricity
to other areas.

What this means for the area
Once installed, the panels require very
little maintenance, but the expectation is
that approximately 1,200 temporary jobs
will be created during the time it will take to
construct the project. With unemployment
as high as it is in the area, Ms. Whirls wel-
comes the jobs, and spoke about the eco-
nomic benefits 1,200 workers will have on
local commerce in Moore Haven, LaBelle
and Clewiston.
However, unless the various electronic
components of the project are compromised
-- an inverter needing replacing or a panel
suffering damage -- the project will operate
strictly by computer, and as an example the

powered by Trulia.com, one of the coun-
try's leading Internet real estate search
firms. Visitors to www.newszap.com will
be able to click through to ZapHomes and
then browse real estate listings by city,
town or zip code.
Newszap.com's new real estate section
also provides easy access to a communi-
ty's demographic information, along with
recent sales trends and property values. Us-
ers will also find local maps, lists of nearby


parks and recreation areas, schools and

civic organizations. In addition, this online
section offers a variety of online tools use-
ful to prospective home buyers, including
a mortgage calculator. Searches can be re-
fined by location, price range, number of
bedrooms, number of bathrooms, square
feet, as well as by the style of house.
Searches can also be based on re-sales,
foreclosures, newly constructed or recently
sold homes. One can even search for open
house tours on specific dates.
"We are very excited to add this great
functionality to our real estate coverage,"
said Jose Zaragoza, Publisher of The
Clewiston News. "Homebuyers, sellers,
and real estate professionals alike will ben-
efit from this new resource."
ZapHomes also includes local advertis-
ing opportunities for realtors, builders and
related industries.

energy automatically adjust themselves as

The next step
"We will do whatever we can to support
the project," said Ms. Whirls. "Mostly our ef-
forts at this point have been trying to work
with our legislators and those folks to get the
renewable energy legislation passed. We'll
be concentrating on it a lot between now
and the regular session in March."
According to her, the company is looking
to the state to adopt a standard requiring a
certain percentage of electricity generated in
Florida to be produced through renewable

resources, or to pass legislation that would
authorize them to build a certain number of
projects within a year and recover the cost
from the rate payers.
"That is the last sticking point," she said.
"The concern from lawmakers is that with a
bad economy there are people struggling to
pay their bills. Can they afford to pay extra in
order to have these renewable projects go
online?"
Ms. Whirls believes the answer is yes.
While it is true that passing the cost to rate
payers would result in customers paying
more, the actual cost would be somewhere
in the neighborhood of about $1 a month,
or less.
