BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston News“We come up with every excuse in the book not to do something,” said Clewiston’s Public Works Director Sean Schef er. That statement rings true for many things -exercising, eating healthy, nishing the home improvements that were started last year and never completed. But besides those resolution-worthy “somethings,” Schef er hopes the residents of Hendry County will take on recycling as their next “to do.” The city of Clewiston has been working hard to make recycling as easy as possible for residents. Though curb-side pickup is a thing of the future for residents within the city limits, the city of Clewiston offers two recycling centers on E. Esperanza Avenue and S. Olympia Street. The city has also introduced “single-stream recycling,” meaning residents no longer have to sort through their recycling; glass bottles, aluminum cans, cardboard, paper and plastic can all be thrown in BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsA Clewiston man was arrested Jan. 18 on felony battery charges after a confrontation inside Mary Lou’s convenience store allegedly turned violent. At around 10:46 a.m., Hendry County deputies responded to the incident. On their way to the store, located on County Road 833, deputies received another call stating the victim was in a car with his three friends and needed an ambulance to meet them, according to an arrest report released by the Hendry County Sheriff’s Of ce. Deputies saw the car on their way to the store and stopped to assist the victim until the ambulance arrived and took him to Hendry Regional Medical Center. Once at the store, deputies met with the manager and viewed the surveillance video that captured most of the alleged ght. BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston News“In Washington this week, Congress is debating a four-year delay to the drastic rate increases to ood insurance from the Biggert-Waters Act. We can’t rely on Congress to x this, instead we must ensure Floridians are protected from egregious rate increases,” stated Sen. Brandes in a press release issued Jan. 9. The Florida Senate is currently debating a bill, introduced by Sen. Brandes, that would establish a private marketplace for ood insurance, creating a “wide range of exible options for policyholders to choose [from],” according to the press release. When the federal government passed the Biggert-Waters Act in 2012, the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) was required to increase ood insurance rates to re ect “true ood risk,” removing subsidies that existed for homeowners whose homes were built before their community adopted its rst ood maps and for homeowners whose homes were built in highrisk areas, called Special Flood Hazard Areas. The threat of subsidy removal caused an outcry from home and business owners who feared the rate increase would be too much of a burden on their wallet. Some homeowners feared the value of their home would diminish and others feared they would be unable to sell their home because of the high cost of mandated ood insurance. But while Congress debates a four-year delay, Florida’s State Senate is working to create a private marketplace for consumers to “shop around” for ood insurance, in order to nd the best, most affordable policy for them. Currently, consumers can only purchase ood insurance through the NFIP.

One of my teachers told about the rebuilding of Japan after World War II: The railroads were destroyed and in an effort to modernize, a newer-model locomotive was brought in from the U. S. The Japanese carefully took it apart and copied all of the parts, then built new engines from this template. The locomotive they bought had been repaired during its lifetime and there was a patch on the boiler. Each Japanese locomotive came brand spanking new from the factory with a patch on the boiler! There have been times when I’ve sought to rebuild something, but asked along the way about what each part did or why the designer included it. Sometimes I’d run into “local variations” for one reason or another: a lawn mower with the air cleaner removed so it would be easier to start; a missing socket in a socket set that was replaced with a metric equivalent; radio knobs that had been glued back onto the radio because they had cracked or the metal insert was lost. Such measures work, but they come with a price. The lawn mower would be taking in dirt, the socket set would be bad for my knuckles and the radio couldn’t be disassembled if repairs were needed. There are always stop-gap solutions, and they come with a price. I’d see two holes beside the carburetor on the lawn mower and know they were for something. Looking at other lawn mowers soon let me know why. A change in the numbering on one of the sockets was a warning: if I want to keep my knuckles intact, beware! Radio knobs can be replaced from other non-working sets. Then the restoration is how the maker intended it to function; demise is forestalled and a small resurrection has taken place. I see the same thing in Churches, as well. Some local custom is af xed to the workings of a religious group, nobody asks any questions and the boiler patch becomes law. Nobody checks with what the rest of the faithful are doing, or how the practice came to be. It seems that this is not a new problem! The Acts of the Apostles tell us that some went out on their own, not part of the wider fellowship of Churches, and caused those in Antioch, Syria and Cilicia to be “disturbed” and “troubled” (Acts 15:22ff). The disciples wrote, “It seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us not to burden you with anything beyond the following requirements ... (vs. 29)” -not adding anything else and keeping erratic local situations from becoming out-of-hand. I see the same thing in people’s lives: avoiding problems by denying they exist, covering for others in hopes things will get better on their own, pushing others into something that’s only good for themselves. Temporary patchwork can come back to haunt us. The apostles saw it at work in three Churches and intervened, not to add more problems, but to avoid what was leading them astray. I am a part of different, larger groups. Hearing the latest developments in ministry, or in other areas of my professional interests, keeps me in touch with my colleagues and gives me resources when I have questions about what to do in a particular local situation. I can contact someone who has “been there before” and learn of approaches to take. I can share a proposal for something I’d like to undertake and see if it’s been tried before. I can attend conferences to meet with colleagues and learn of the latest developments. In short, I work to keep balance by being part of the larger Church, the larger community of professional colleagues, the greater body of the faithful. Likewise, it is those around us who help us keep personally balanced; the wider the circle, the better the opportunities for help when we need it. The wider the circle, the more ways to look for true solutions that go beyond patchwork and the more ways to better become who God intended us to become. If you would like to contact Rev. Thomas about this column or have an idea for one, please send an email to fatherthomas@saintmartins-clewiston.org. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 CLEWISTON ADULT & COMMUNITY SCHOOL475 E.

BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe American Gold nch is one of the most common and widespread birds in North American. It is the state bird of New Jersey, Iowa and Washington. Populations in southern Canada and the southern United States migrate seasonally south, but will linger longer in locations where food is abundant. They are a relatively common wintering bird in Florida, but most depart the state by early April. These small nches, which are about ve inches long, are also called Wild Canary or Gold nch. They have a thick, short, conical bill with a pale or light gray color, small head, long wings and short-notched tail. Both male and female birds have a white rump. In the spring and early summer, adult males are bright yellow with a black forehead, black wings with white markings, and with patches both above and beneath the tail. Adult females are duller yellow beneath and olive above. Wintering birds are drab, non-streaked brown with blackish wings and two pale wing bars. These birds are the only nch that molts its body feathers twice a year, once in the winter and again in late summer. The oldest known American Gold nch, as of May 2007, lived to be 10 years and ve months old. The male's song is a long, variable series of twitters and warbles, which can be several seconds long. These birds continue to learn song patterns throughout their lives. The American Gold nch's most common call sounds like the bird is quietly saying, "po-ta-to-chip," with a very even cadence. Some of their other calls include harsh threat calls or males making a "tee-yee" courtship call. The Gold nch's main habitats are weedy elds, overgrown areas and oodplains where plants, like sun owers, thistles and asters, are common. They are among the strictest vegetarians in the bird world. Their diet consists mainly of seeds from plants, grasses and trees, and they only occasionally swallow an insect. At bird feeders they prefer nyler and sun ower seeds. American Gold nch nest later than most North American birds. Most nesting occurs in June or July when there is an abundance of milkweed, thistle and other plants to use for nesting material and as food for their young. When Brown-headed Cowbirds lay eggs in the Gold nch nest, the young Cowbird chick seldom survives longer than three days on the all-seed diet that the Gold nch feed their young. A mated pair of American Gold nch will raise one to two broods of four to six eggs annually. The female does most of the 10to 12-day incubation, but both parents feed their offspring during the 11to 17-day nesting phase. Anyone who would like to participate in upcoming driving trips at STA-5 on Feb. 1, 15, 16 or 17 or March 8 or 9 should email Margaret England at sta5birding@embarqmail.com or call 863-674-0695 or 863-517-0202.

BY NAJI TOBIAS Special to e Clewiston NewsLenorris Gaines had a season to remember for the Clewiston Tigers. The junior athlete, who nished with 30 catches for 794 yards and seven touchdowns, was the only area player selected to the Class 4A All-State First Team. "It's a privilege, but it wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for the teammates I had around me," Gaines said. "I just always felt like it was a minor set back for a major come back." The dynamic playmaker, who scored both of Clewiston's touchdowns in a thrilling 16-10 road over crosstown rival Glades Day in Week 9 of the regular season, credits assistant coach Brad Garrett for the progress he has made on the eld. "I owe all my success to Coach Garrett for pushing and believing in me to the fullest," he said. Gaines, who also caught two interceptions on defense, recapped his junior season. "I worked hard last summer," he said. "The team had something to prove, so I had to work hard to make sure that happened. I came a long way in learning how to block for my teammates when I didn't have the ball and thinking before acting on anything. But really, I just made plays when I had the chance." Gaines wasn't the only All-State selection from our area. Glades Central senior linebacker Jarvis Philibert was a Class 4A All-State First Team Defense pick, while fellow teammate and senior cornerback Bernard Willingham made the Class 4A All-State Second Team Defense. Meanwhile, Clewiston senior offensive lineman Joe Hernandez was selected to the Class 4A All-State Second Team Offense, while fellow teammate and senior running back Derry West was a Class 4A All-State Honorable Mention pick at his position. In Class 3A, Pahokee senior cornerback Dontrell Johnson and linebacker Anton Paige were both All-State Second Team Defense selections, while senior athlete Rashaun Croney was a 3A All-State Honorable Mention pick as a utility player. Class 2A had two All-State picks from Glades Day, as senior offensive lineman Dillon McGahee made the classi cation's All-State First Team on offense, while fellow teammates and juniors William Mercer and Kevon Spence were 2A All-State Second Team Defense picks at defensive lineman and defensive back, respectively. Here's the complete list of our area's All-State picks: Glades Central LB Jarvis Philibert Class 4A All-State First Team Defense DB Bernard Willingham Class 4A All-State Second Team Defense Glades Day OL Dillon McGahee Class 2A All-State First Team Offense DL William Mercer Class 2A All-State Second Team Defense DB Kevon Spence Class 2A All-State Second Team Defense Pahokee DB Dontrell Johnson Class 3A All-State Second Team Defense LB Anton Paige Class 3A All-State Second Team Defense UT Rashaun Croney Class 3A All-State Honorable Mention Clewiston WR Lenorris Gaines Class 4A All-State First Team Offense OL Joe Hernandez Class 4A All-State Second Team Offense RB Derry West Class 4A All-State Honorable Mention In total, there were 11 All-State selections from our area. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 6 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 23, 2014 Glades Area Players Make Appearance as All-State Selections SUBMITTED PHOTORashaun Croney, Class 3A All-State honorable mention pick. “I OWE ALL MY SUCCESS TO COACH GARRETT FOR PUSHING AND BELIEVING IN ME TO THE FULLEST.”LENORRIS GAINES

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 8 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 23, 2014 Discovery Day Academy’s Head of School Elizabeth Garcia and Department Head Allana Cardenas recently attended the prestigious P21 Summit on 21st Century Learning in Washington D.C. P21 is the leading national organization advocating for 21st century readiness. The invitation-only event brought together experts in the eld of 21st century learning to explore and celebrate exemplars of 21st century learning practices, and a call to action to make achieving 21st century learning a priority for all students. The event also celebrated the soon-to-be announced 25 schools of P21’s 21st Century Learning Exemplar Program, designed to showcase what 21st century learning looks like in practice, and highlight the schools and districts across the nation that are improving learning opportunities and outcomes for students by integrating 21st century learning into their curriculum, professional development, learning environments and community partnerships. Attendance included national and state policy makers, senior-level executives from national and international businesses and cutting-edge educational leaders and innovators. “It was exciting to share our school’s successes with 21st century education,” said Garcia. “We appreciated the rare opportunity to learn from others on this incredible stage as we embark on our school’s growth process.” Garcia is the founder of Discovery Day Academy, with more than 10 years of experience in the education eld. She is a passionate empirical researcher and writer in the areas of deeper learning, cognitive development and 21st century student outcomes. Multiple intelligences and individual learning styles are Cardenas’s areas of expertise. Her educational experiences and personal research fostered her mission of advocacy toward exemplary student outcomes. Discovery Day Academy was founded in 2006 as an independent lab school for early learning research. Garcia’s experiences as a primary school teacher, interest in generational challenges and proximity to the business community attributed to her desire to make a difference the the nation’s youngest leaders.

Water supply continues to be adequate for this time of yearNearly a month’s worth of rain fell during three days in some areas of Miami, while much of Central and South Florida experienced below-average precipitation in December, South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) meteorologists reported. “When it comes to the regional water supply, we are still being sustained by accumulated above-average wet season rainfall and a few recent rainfall events,” said Susan Sylvester, chief of the Water Control Operations Bureau. “It is too early to predict how rainfall in the remainder of the dry season will impact the system.” District-wide, only 0.74 inches of rain fell in November, representing 39 percent of average, or 1.15 inches below average for the month. Miami-Dade County received 3.62 inches of rain, representing 190 percent of average, or 1.71 inches above average. Warm temperatures, close proximity to the Gulf Stream and stalled fronts combined to cause above-average rainfall in portions of Miami both in November and December. The Kissimmee region, the East Caloosahatchee and the Southwest Coast represented the driest portions of the 16-county District, with all areas from Orlando to Naples recording more than 1.21 inches or more below-average rainfall. Coastal areas of Martin, St. Lucie, Palm Beach and Broward counties also saw belowaverage rainfall. Lake Okeechobee stood at 14.16 NGVD on Jan. 2, which is 0.58 inches below its historic average for this date. The lake received 0.37 inches of direct rainfall in December, representing 23 percent of average, or 1.23 inches below average. December Statistics from the National Weather Service: West Palm Beach: tied for the warmest December on record since 1931 at 74.4 degrees Fahrenheit Fort Lauderdale: third warmest on record since 2006 at 74.2 degrees Fahrenheit Miami: second warmest on record since 1931 at 75.3 degrees Fahrenheit Naples: third warmest on record since 1948 at 72.4 degrees Fahrenheit For the calendar year 2013, the average temperatures at these sites rank in the top 10 warmest for each location. South Florida’s Dry Season, November to May About 18 inches of rainfall is the average May and October are important transition months March, April and May are the driest months because evaporation is highest Highlights of the 2013-2014 South Florida dry season forecast from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center include below-normal precipitation and a possibility of near to slightly above-normal temperatures. For reference, South Florida precipitation in an average dry season is 12 to 15 inches in the interior/west; 15 to 21 inches in the east. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 9 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 23, 2014 Santos Perez, a second grade student at Westside Elementary School, won the Elks State Soccer Shoot in the Boys U-8 (under eight years of age) division on Saturday, Jan. 4 at the Elks Camp in Umatilla, Fla.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 11 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 23, 2014 In the Jan. 16 edition of The Clewiston News there was an error in the article titled “Board of Commissioners Hears Updates on Airglades Airport” on page 11. The article states Commissioner Mike Swindle seconded Commissioner Don Davis’ motion to waive the application fee for a landowner who wished to expand her business, while Commissioner Darrell Harris voted against the motion. It should have been written that Commissioner Harris seconded the motion and Commissioner Swindle voted against the motion. Article Correction: The King’s Academy (TKA) Clewiston proudly announces that Cassidy Noel Lee has been accepted to Florida Gulf Coast University for the 2014 Fall Semester. She will be seeking a degree in elementary education. Cassidy has always worked well with children and will be pursuing her lifelong dream of becoming a teacher. In addition to taking AP courses, maintaining membership in the National Honor Society and taking additional studies online, Cassidy is employed by Beef ‘O’ Brady’s restaurant in Clewiston. Cassidy, her parents and her four siblings have been involved in the academic and agricultural Clewiston community all their lives. She was chosen Hendry County Cattleman’s Sweetheart for 2013/14. She will compete for State Sweetheart at Marco Island in June. She is also entering a 4H steer at the Hendry County Fair in February. Now, Cassidy is either at school, at work or following the rodeo circuit with her brothers, but after June 6, she will be greatly missed by all at TKA when she graduates with honors and leaves Clewiston for Florida Gulf Coast University. TKA Pupil Accepted to FGCU Cassidy Lee the same bin, both at home and at the recycling centers. Though many of the city’s recycling bins say “plastics only” or “cardboard only” they are all mixed recycling bins. The same applies to the glass recycling bins: residents can choose to sort the glass by color and put it in the separate bin, or put it together in the mixed recycling bin. Schef er also explained that residents do not need to worry whether, for example, a plastic container has a recycling symbol on the bottom, or whether that symbol carries a number 1, 2 or 6. It can all be recycled, said Schef er, no matter the number and no matter the symbol. Though efforts to make recycling simpler and more convenient for city residents have been made, Schef er said a change in attitude and habit is necessary to make recycling part of everyone’s daily routine. “Recycling is something parents need to do so small children see it as a way of life,” said Schef er. “We need to start developing a thought process in our children.” Scheffler gave the example of seat belts in cars and trucks. W hen he was in elementary school, Schef er said there were no seat belts in cars; and when every car nally came equipped with seat belts, it was not mandatory to wear them, therefore, people often did not. After years of pushing to mandate the use of seat belts and a change in the attitude of drivers and passengers, it is second nature to “click it” when they get in the car. Schef er believes recycling will work the same w ay. “We can reduce by 80 percent the amount of solid waste sent to our land lls by recycling,” said Schef er. Schef er also offered suggestions to make recycling easier for families. Batteries, for example, are abundant in everyone’s home and are usually thrown out without another thought. Schefer suggests keeping a sturdy bucket underneath the kitchen sink or near the washing machine (or any place that is convenient for the family) and putting the batteries in the bucket when they die. Once the bucket becomes full, simply call the county to set up a time to bring the batteries to the household recycling center. The number to call is 863-675-5252. Residents can also recycle and make a little bit of extra money at the same time by taking their aluminum cans to Allied Recycling, located at 521 E. Haiti Avenue in Clewiston. Allied Recycling will pay per pound for certain metals, including aluminum, copper, steel, lead and brass. Examples of items they accept are aluminum cans and pots, power cords, Christmas lights, car batteries, car parts, lawn mowers, washing machines and even weights from cast nets. Like the stock market, the prices paid for the metals vary per day. It is also necessary to bring in at least one pound worth of metal, as the scales will not register under one pound. Larry Whitaker, manager at Allied Recycling, said it takes roughly 23 aluminum cans to make a pound. Allied Recycling also accepts cars and car parts, and customers typically receive $200 to $500 for scrap cars, according to Whitaker. As customers continue to bring metal goods to be recycled at Allied Recycling, Whitaker said those customers become savvier about what can be broken down and sold, maximizing the amount of money the customer receives. Allied Recycling is based out of Fort Myers and has locations throughout Florida. The Clewiston location is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Potential customers should call 863-301-3670 for more information. With eased restrictions on what can be recycled and a modernized single-stream recycling system, it is easier than ever for residents living within the city of Clewiston to reduce, reuse and recycle.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 14 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 23, 2014 “The federal government has proven incapable of running a nancially sound ood insurance program, necessitating the development of a private market for ood insurance in Florida,” said Senate President Don Gaetz. “I commend Senator Brandes for developing a common sense market-based solution to the problem of ood insurance in our state and I’m grateful to the members of the committee who supported his legislation.” The bill has since passed the Subcommittee on Banking and Insurance with a unanimous vote, and is now awaiting approval by the Appropriations Subcommittee on General Government. On Jan. 17, State Attorney General Pam Bondi sent a letter to Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid stating she has led legal briefs “urging the court to stay the law’s enforcement,” which she claimed in the letter was unlawfully implemented. “As I travel the state talking to Floridians, I hear devastating accounts of the real-life impact of the Biggert-Waters’ implementation. I hear of people losing their homes, others unable to sell their homes, and buyers fearful of what the drastic ood insurance hikes will do to the overall housing market,” said Attorney General Bondi in her letter. If the legislation passes in the state senate, it will allow homeowners to choose whether they wish to cover their outstanding balance of their mortgage, the replacement cost of their property or the actual cash value of their property, according to the press release. “This legislation puts consumers in charge and it offers exibility to families struggling under the burdens of failed federal policies,” said Sen. Brandes. FloodContinued From Page 1 The video reportedly shows the victim pointing and saying something to the suspect, 28year-old Daniel David Castro, on his way out of the store. Castro then reportedly approached the victim, who tried to punch Castro before being “scooped up” and wrestled onto the counter by Castro. Castro reportedly hit the victim several times in his right side while the victim was on the counter. The victim then bit Castro right before Castro picked him up and slammed him onto the ground. According to the report, the video then shows the two ghting on the ground with Daniel on top. Shortly after the two begin ghting on the ground, the victim reportedly went limp while Castro continued to punch him, his head bouncing off the concrete oor as he was being hit. The video then shows the victim being lifted up and slammed onto the ground a second time, his head hitting the concrete oor again, before everything stopped, according to the report.The report also states the video did not capture the entire ght, as both the victim and Castro leave the frame several times. While deputies reviewed the video, they received a call from Castro’s mother who said her son wished to speak to them about the incident. Deputies traveled to Castro’s house, where he gave them an account of what happened. Castro’s account, according to the report, was as it happened in the video. Castro was arrested and charged with aggravated battery causing bodily harm or disability. At this point, no information has been released about the condition of the victim.

Operations to be scheduled on ‘as needed’ basisThe city of Clewiston has contracted with Clarke Environmental for the 2014 Mosquito Control services. Beginning in January, a xed-wing aircraft will be ying at low levels over populated areas of the city and the Harlem community spraying for the control of adult mosquito populations. These ights will be scheduled on an “as needed” basis throughout the year. Ground trucks will also be in service using equipment designed to spray a cloud of pesticide into the air allowing it to drift through the community killing adult mosquitoes. These operations will also be scheduled on an “as needed” basis throughout the year. All chemicals used for controlling mosquitoes are approved by the FDEP and labeled for this use. All applicators are trained and licensed to apply these chemicals in populated areas. Anyone who has questions or concerns, or needs to register a complaint about mosquitoes, should call the Public Works Of ce at 863-9831471 between the hours of 7 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Public Notice Public Notice Public Notice Public Notice *** PUBLIC NOTICE *** U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Okeelanta Cogeneration Station Air Permit PSD-EPA-R4016 For New Hope Power Company Public Comment Period: January 23, 2014 to February 24, 2014 The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is seeking public comment on a draft Clean Air Act (CAA) Prevention of Signi cant Deterioration (PSD) Greenhouse Gas (GHG) air permit for New Hope Power Company (NHPC) Okeelanta Generation Station Project (Project), 8001 U.S. Highway 27 South within the City of South Bay, in Palm Beach County, Florida. The draft permit will regulate GHG emissions from an additional natural gas boiler with a maximum 1-hour heat input rate of 589 million British thermal units per hour and a maximum steam production rate 440,000 pounds per hour. The EPA Region 4 is the agency responsible for implementing and enforcing CAA requirements for GHG sources in Florida. Pursuant to the air quality regulations applicable to GHG sources set forth in Title 40, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 52, a GHG source is required to obtain an air quality permit before beginning construction. The EPA has completed review of the NPHC air permit application and supplemental materials and is soliciting comments on the Agency’s proposal to issue Permit No. PSD-EPA-R4016 to NHPC for their project, which is subject to the terms and conditions described in the permit. The EPA has prepared a draft permit for public comment, as well as a preliminary determination/statement of basis document that explains the basis of the permit conditions. These documents are available on the EPA Region 4’s website at: http://www.epa.gov/region4/air/permits/ghgpermits/ghgpermits.html. To request a copy of these documents or to be added to the EPA’s GHG permit mailing list, please contact: Ms. Rosa Yarbrough, Permit Support Specialist at: 404-562-9643, or yarbrough.rosa@epa.gov. For questions on the draft permit, please contact: Mr. James Purvis at 404-562-9139 or purvis.james@epa.gov.

Public Comments must be received by email, submitted electronically via www.regulations.gov, or postmarked by February 24, 2014. Public Hearing requests must be received by the EPA by email or mail by February 7, 2014. Project Emissions: The potential annual emissions in tons per year (TPY) of GHG emissions from the Project are summarized in the following table. Okeelanta Cogeneration Station is an existing major source and this project triggered PSD review for emissions of GHGs exceed the subject-to-regulation applicability threshold of 75,000 TPY of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) and the PSD signi cant emission rate of 0 TPY of GHG emissions on a mass basis. Hence, NHPC is required to apply Best Available Control Technology for GHGs. Pollutant PTE Subject-to-Regulation Signi cant PSD Review (TPY) Threshold Emission Rate Required (TPY of CO2e) (TPY mass) GHGs 274,446 75,000 0 Yes The project will also result in emissions increases and decreases of other regulated air pollutants; however, these emissions are subject to a separate preconstruction permitting action under the jurisdiction of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Public Comments: Any interested person may submit written comments on the draft permit during the public comment period. If you believe any condition of the permit is inconsistent with applicable requirements, you must raise all reasonably ascertainable issues and submit all reasonably available arguments supporting your position by the end of the comment period. Any documents supporting your comments must be included in full and may not be incorporated by reference unless they are already part of the record for this permit or consist of state or federal statutes or regulations, EPA documents of general applicability, or other generally available reference materials.

All comments on the draft permit must be received by email, submitted electronically via www.regulations.gov, which can be accessed through the EPA Region 4 website listed above, or postmarked by February 24, 2014. An extension of the 30-day comment period may be granted if the request for an extension adequately demonstrates why additional time is required to prepare comments. Comments must be sent or delivered in writing to the address above. All comments will be included in the public docket without change and will be made available to the public, including any personal information provided, unless the comment includes Con dential Business Information or other information whose disclosure is restricted by statute.

Similar comments may be grouped together in our response, and the EPA will not respond to individual commenters directly. Public Hearing : The EPA will hold a public hearing if the Agency determines that there is a signi cant degree of public interest in the draft permit. Requests for a public hearing must be received by the EPA by e-mail or mail by February 7, 2014, and state the nature of the issues proposed to be raised in the hearing. You may submit oral or written comments on the draft permit at the public hearing. You do not need to attend the public hearing to submit written comments.

BY NAJI TOBIAS Special to e SunLenorris Gaines had a season to remember for the Clewiston Tigers. The junior athlete, who nished with 30 catches for 794 yards and seven touchdowns, was the only area player selected to the Class 4A All-State First Team. "It's a privilege, but it wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for the teammates I had around me," Gaines said. "I just always felt like it was a minor set back for a major come back." The dynamic playmaker, who scored both of Clewiston's touchdowns in a thrilling 16-10 road over crosstown rival Glades Day in Week 9 of the regular season, credits assistant coach Brad Garrett for the progress he has made on the eld. "I owe all my success to Coach Garrett for pushing and believing in me to the fullest," he said. Gaines, who also caught two interceptions on defense, recapped his junior season. "I worked hard last summer," he said. "The team had something to prove, so I had to work hard to make sure that happened. I came a long way in learning how to block for my teammates when I didn't have the ball and thinking before acting on anything. But really, I just made plays when I had the chance." Gaines wasn't the only All-State selection from our area. Glades Central senior linebacker Jarvis Philibert was a Class 4A All-State First Team Defense pick, while fellow teammate and senior cornerback Bernard Willingham made the Class 4A All-State Second Team Defense. Meanwhile, Clewiston senior offensive lineman Joe Hernandez was selected to the Class 4A All-State Second Team Offense, while fellow teammate and senior running back Derry West was a Class 4A All-State Honorable Mention pick at his position. In Class 3A, Pahokee senior cornerback Dontrell Johnson and linebacker Anton Paige were both All-State Second Team Defense selections, while senior athlete Rashaun Croney was a 3A All-State Honorable Mention pick as a utility player. Class 2A had two All-State picks from Glades Day, as senior offensive lineman Dillon McGahee made the classi cation's All-State First Team on offense, while fellow teammates and juniors William Mercer and Kevon Spence were 2A All-State Second Team Defense picks at defensive lineman and defensive back, respectively. Here's the complete list of our area's All-State picks: Glades Central LB Jarvis Philibert Class 4A All-State First Team Defense DB Bernard Willingham Class 4A All-State Second Team Defense Glades Day OL Dillon McGahee Class 2A All-State First Team Offense DL William Mercer Class 2A All-State Second Team Defense DB Kevon Spence Class 2A All-State Second Team Defense Pahokee DB Dontrell Johnson Class 3A All-State Second Team Defense LB Anton Paige Class 3A All-State Second Team Defense UT Rashaun Croney Class 3A All-State Honorable Mention Clewiston WR Lenorris Gaines Class 4A All-State First Team Offense OL Joe Hernandez Class 4A All-State Second Team Offense RB Derry West Class 4A All-State Honorable Mention In total, there were 11 All-State selections from our area. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 6 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 23, 2014 Glades Area Players Make Appearance as All-State Selections SUBMITTED PHOTORashaun Croney, Class 3A All-State honorable mention pick. “I OWE ALL MY SUCCESS TO COACH GARRETT FOR PUSHING AND BELIEVING IN ME TO THE FULLEST.”LENORRIS GAINES
