BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsTouting the project as the biggest economic development effort in Hendry County in nearly 50 years, local of cials at a ribbon-cutting ceremony announced that Nitrogen Holdings Corporation will soon be breaking ground on a new cleantech fertilizer plant. Local and state of cials, Hendry County residents and members of BioNitrogen convened at the Weekley Industrial Park on C.R. 833 on May 14 to celebrate the momentous occasion. "I'm humbled that you are all here today," said Hendry County Economic Development Council President Gregg Gillman, welcoming guests at the start of the ceremony. "I have been in economic development for 25 years. This is the third largest, successful economic development project that I have been involved with, and I was in Indianapolis for 16 years." BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsThough they may not be as sprightly as they once were, the men of the Eighth Air Force are still as quick-witted as ever and made their way to Clewiston this past weekend for an annual reunion. Sharing stories about their time in training and reminiscing about the B-17 bombers that kept them safe during covert missions, less than a dozen WWII veterans of the "Mighty Eighth" Air Force gathered in the conference room of the Clewiston Inn on May 16, along with their wives and a few youngsters from the Korean and Vietnam wars. Their meeting was part of a threeday reunion featuring a seminar- lled itinerary with meet and greets, dinners and ample story telling time. The Eighth Air Force Historical Society dates back to 1975, when it BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsThe Clewiston City Commission met for their regular meeting at Clewiston's City Hall on May 19. On the agenda for the night were discussions of the 2015 paving project, options for a $75,000 boat basin grant and a sixmonth recap of scal year 2015.Paving Project 2015At the start of the meeting, Public Works Director Sean Schef er presented two alternatives for the 2015 paving project to the commission. Both options target the northern side of town near the Youth Center and public library, as well as E. Pasadena Avenue. The rst option would pave 2.69 miles of road, at a cost of about $200,000, and would leave all driveway aprons to be paved as one project in 2016. The second option would pave 1.75 miles of road at a cost of $139,721, as well as 62 driveway aprons, for a total cost of about $200,000. City Manager Al Perry and Director Schef er agreed that the rst option would be the best choice, however, commissioners were at odds about what the best option would be for the city and its residents. Commissioner Mali Gardner expressed that she would like to see as much road paved as possible in the 2015 project, saying she would rather see the $200,000 be spent entirely on roads. Mayor Phillip Roland, however, seemed concerned about not including the driveway aprons in the project because of a city ordinance that mandates all properties have a paved driveway apron by February 2016. The cost of the apron would be paid for by both the property owner and the city, in a 50-50 split. This ordinance is the reason City Manager Perry and Director Schef er suggested the single driveway apron project.

was rst incorporated. Traditionally, members of the historical society were WWII veterans who served in the Eighth Air Force, which began on January 19, 1942, less than two months after Pearl Harbor was bombed by the Japanese. The Eighth Air Force became infamous after the war ended, having had the largest percentage of casualties compared to any other out t during WWII, according to Chapter Director Sidney Katz, who served in the 467th bomb group during the war. Katz was a specialist in radar during the war. It was his job to keep the pilots he ew with safe by "jamming" the German radars with thousands of different signals. The Germans would have to gure out which signal out of a thousand was the one that would tell them exactly where the Americans were ying. Shells from German ghter planes could be heard zooming underneath the American formation, according to Katz, and the pilots would tap him on the shoulder knowing it was him who was keeping them all safe. Every member of the army air corps -the forerunner to the air force -was a volunteer, said Katz. "You couldn't draft people into the air corps. We were looking for adventure, we were looking for revenge," he said. "Girls played with dolls and carriages when they were young, and boys played with guns." Each veteran served a different purpose during the war and each veteran had his own unique story to tell. Bernard Silverblatt ew blacked-out B-24s in a night out t, using ashlight morse code to drop supplies over Norway and Denmark in the cover of darkness. Morton Israel conducted his ight training at Clewiston's own Riddle Field, and became a ball turret gunner during the war. As the ball turret gunner, Israel manned the machine gun inside the sherical chamber underneath the bombers. Not all of the veterans who met for the reunion served in WWII. Mark Norman is a veteran of the Korean War, and Levy Sur is a retired ghter pilot who served in Israel's rst air force, after it was established on May 26, 1948. The number of veterans from America's later wars, as well as the dwindling number of WWII vets who make it to the annual reunions is testament to the time that has passed since the last great war. "There's not too many of us left. I was lucky to make it," said Art Jenkins, who turns 90 years old this week. Jenkins, a pilot in the Mighty Eighth, ew 30 combat missions over Germany during the war. But it was his missions dropping food over Holland in May of 1945 that has become his most talked about memory. After the war, Jenkins took advantage of the GI bill and became an engineer. He kept pictures in his of ce of his time overseas, and a fellow engineer came into his of ce and began looking at the photos. The engineer told Jenkins he had grown up in Holland. His father died during the war because there was no food after the Germans ooded the land. "I was a nine-yearold boy catching the food that came down from the American planes," the engineer told Jenkins. "That is my most talked about memory," said Jenkins, fondly More and more stories owed from the vets during their three-day reunion. The chapter president, Bill Uphoff, who recently celebrated his 95th birthday, began ying B-17s at the age of 21 with 11 men in his group for whom he was responsible. Uphoff ew 34 missions and said he was one of the lucky few to bring all of his men back safely. Uphoff ew three missions to Berlin, but his mission to Cologne, Germany was one that sticks out in his mind. Uphoff said he was charged to bomb the granite bridge that stood in front of the cathedral. During the mission, Uphoff's plane was damaged and forced to make an emergency landing at the nearest air eld 20 miles from Cologne. Uphoff and his navigator ew 500 feet off the ground towards a forest, dodging enemy re and praying for a safe landing. When they neared the air eld, the navigator told Uphoff the eld was German held. "Everything sunk," said Uphoff. "We couldn't go around because we had two engines out. So we landed." Once they landed, Uphoff said he knew it was over. Then a truck started towards them with a white star across its front -the Americans had taken the air eld just before Uphoff made his emergency landing. "If you get home," Uphoff said, "it's not because of your skills. It's because of your luck." 3 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 22, 2014 AIRContinued From Page 1 PHOTO/ MELISSA BELTZ

The Blessings of Love BugsBY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchLove bug blessings. That’s an oxymoron if I ever heard one. Like jumbo shrimp or good grief, the words seem contradictory to each other. Some blessings are easy to acknowledge. For instance, I feel blessed with the sacri ces and freedoms we have received from those who have served or are serving in the armed forces. That makes sense. It’s right and proper. I celebrate that we are honoring them this weekend. But I have trouble celebrating and nding blessings in the love bug explosion that invaded us these last couple of weeks. Love bugs are not what comes to mind when I count my many blessings and name them one by one. But we are told in the Scriptures to give God thanks for everything, so I began wracking my brain for love bug blessings. I found that there are some blessings if you look hard enough. First, love bugs don’t bite. Praise God for that! Other blessings: Love bugs encourage me to wash my truck more often. Love bugs bring all of us together with a common nemesis. Love bugs increase on-the-road comradeship: “If I convoy behind that truck, it will take out most of the love bugs.” Love bugs increase my prayer life (Good Lord, where did all these love bugs come from?) Love bugs help me deal with statistics (with all of these hundreds of thousands of love bugs being smashed, surely there will be less in the future!) Love bugs only live three to four days, less if they y near a road. Love bug season helps us appreciate even more the 10-plus months when we don’t have to deal with them. In my search for love bug blessings, I was reminded of the story of Granny G, who never said anything bad about anyone or anything. Several guys decided to tease her and challenged, “Granny, what do you have to say about the devil?” Granny answered, “That rascal certainly gets around!” Attitude can make a world of difference in how we respond to the daily challenges we encounter, and we can always nd some positive sin the negatives we come across – even love bugs! That’s a life lesson worth embracing. Having said all this, there is still a part of me that wants to ask, “Noah, why couldn’t you have swatted those mosquitoes and squashed those love bugs?”First Methodist Time ChangeCLEWISTON — First United Methodist Church has changed their Sunday worship to one combined worship service at 10 a.m. each Sunday. After the opening praise, children through the fourth grade are invited to leave for a special Children’s Church Program. The nursery is also available for very young children.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 22, 2014 4 RELIGION NEWS AND INFORMATIONATTITUDE CAN MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE IN HOW WE RESPOND TO THE DAILY CHALLENGES WE ENCOUNTER...JOHN HICKS Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 2.3 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.62/g yesterday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 8,237 gas outlets in Florida. This compares with the national average that has not moved in the last week to $3.62/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 16.9 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 12.4 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has not moved during the last month and stands 5.0 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. “The drop that we had observed in the national average weeks ago took a pause over the last week,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “Oil prices have perked back up, and some supply tightness across areas of the country helped propel wholesale gasoline prices higher last week, leading retail prices to hold steady instead of continuing to decline. The temporary stability in the national average will ebb over the next week or two, and gas prices will head down again as we approach Memorial Day,” DeHaan said.

The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) Governing Board is recognizing May 18–24, 2014, as Water Reuse Week to promote the bene ts of using reclaimed water as part of a continuing effort to protect regional water supplies. “Reusing water is essential throughout the state in protecting Florida’s water resources,” said SFWMD Executive Director Blake Guillory, P.E., who also is on the board of directors for the national Water Reuse Association. “Reuse technologies are continually improving, and as a result, we’re seeing an increase in customized industrial applications—especially as Florida’s economy also continues to improve.” Reclaimed water projects ease demand on traditional sources of water and reduce discharges into the ocean. Florida leads the nation in water reuse. Within the District’s 16-county region, more than 100 reuse systems produce and reuse 266 million gallons of reclaimed water per day. Water reuse involves treating domestic wastewater and using the resulting high-quality reclaimed water for a bene cial purpose. Extensive treatment and disinfection ensure that public health and environmental quality are protected. Reclaimed water can be used for many purposes, including:  Irrigation of golf courses, parks, residential properties, highway medians and other green space  Aesthetic landscape features, such as decorative lakes, ponds and fountains  Agricultural irrigation  Environmental restoration and wetland creation  Groundwater recharge  Industrial uses, including equipment wash down, processing water and cooling water Communities that reuse water are able to grow in size while minimizing or even reducing their impact on the water resources they depend on. In addition, use of reclaimed water allows communities to postpone or minimize their capital investments in developing new, more costly water sources and supplies. Further, reclaimed water is exempt from SFWMD landscape irrigation restrictions. The SFWMD, along with local governments and organizations throughout the state, recognizes Water Reuse Week each year during the third full week of May, just as the dry season comes to an end.

city that are not up to code, at a cost of about $463,000. The city would have to take out a loan to pay for the project initially, and residents would pay back their portion of the project over the next few years. Commissioner Julio Rodriguez said he has already had residents approach him saying they will ght the city for paving their aprons in the project, because they said they won't be able to pay the cost. "To do 300 aprons now -I think it's a little premature to do 300 now," said Commissioner Rodriguez. "It may be the case that no one has a problem spending that money, but I guarantee if we have 300 people in here saying they don't want that apron, I'm going to say, let's not improve that apron. ... I don't know if I want to ght that battle," said Commissioner Rodriguez. The back and forth led to a discussion about paving only the driveway ares in the project, instead of the entire apron, which would still protect the edge of pavement until the aprons are completed in the coming years. Commissioner Pittman made a motion to do the 2015 paving project up to 2.69 miles as the budget allows and to allow Director Schef er to pave driveway ares as he sees t, and not to include driveway aprons in the 2015 project. Commissioner Rodriguez seconded the motion, so long as the commission did not vote that night on the single apron project. Commissioners voted 5-0 to approve the motion. The motion, however, would not carry until commissioners addressed one of the city's ordinances.Amending a City OrdinanceCurrently, the city has an ordinance that states when the city paves a road, it must also pave any driveway aprons that need to be improved -unless the property owner decides to pave the apron himself. In order to pass their motion, the city commission would need to amend the ordinance, which takes two meetings to complete. The city could also take this opportunity to push back the February 2016 deadline that makes driveway aprons a requirement. Commissioner Gardner suggested the staff come back at the next meeting with recommendations for amending the ordinance, so the commission can move forward with approving the paving project. Commissioner Pittman also suggested the commission push the February 2016 deadline date to December 31, 2016, giving the public works department time to work through the winter on the paving project and the driveway aprons. A second ordinance was also discussed at the workshop before Monday's regular meeting, when local real estate agent Laura Smith stood before the commission to voice concerns about an ordinance that forces property owners to put in a driveway apron in order to do repairs or improvements on the home. The ordinance reads that any repair or improvement project that exceeds $2,500 on a home that does not have a driveway apron must have an apron paved before or by the time the repair or improvement is nished. If the driveway apron is not paved, the permit remains open and could present problems for the homeowner if they wish to sell or borrow money on the house. Smith said she was concerned the ordinance would inhibit her ability to rent and sell homes, which could be especially detrimental at a time when the real estate market is once again gaining traction. Community Development Director Travis Reese recommended the commission modify the language in the ordinance, as well as in a similar ordinance concerning dumpster enclosures for businesses. The commission could not take action on any of the ordinances at the night's meeting, but City Attorney Schoech was given direction to modify the language of the ordinances in accordance with the direction given by the commission.Attorney General Says, ‘No’The next agenda item also required direction from the city attorney. At a previous meeting, the Clewiston Chamber of Commerce asked the city to donate money towards its second annual Capturing Clewiston Photo Contest, which compiles the best resident-submitted photography of the area into a book. Attorney Schoech raised concerns that the city could not donate money to such a project and called upon the Florida Attorney General for recommendations. The Attorney General came back and said in order for the city to legally donate money towards the project, the project must serve a public municipal purpose. In this case, the project would have to promote the city of Clewiston and Hendry County and the Chamber must demonstrate to the city how that will take place. The Attorney General, in four different opinions, said the project does not serve a speci c public purpose and Attorney Schoech said the project only has the "potential to serve a public purpose," but it is not guaranteed to do so. Members of the Chamber, including Executive Director Electa Waddell and board member John Wellslager, addressed the commission at the meeting and said the photo contest has been funded in part by the Tourism Development Council and the Economic Development Council because the intent of the book is to market Hendry County and the city of Clewiston. Most of the commissioners seemed to believe the book would, in fact, promote the area and voted in favor of a motion to give $500 on behalf of the city to the Capturing Clewiston Photo Contest. Commissioner Rodriguez, however, voted against the motion, saying it was too gray of an area to vote in favor of, while Commissioner Petersen opted out of the vote because she is a member of the Chamber of Commerce's Board of Directors.Improving the Boat BasinScott Pruitt presented options for a $75,000 grant from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) to improve the boat basin in Clewiston. Of cials discussed adding a 20-foot by 40foot pavilion, similar to the one in Trinidad Park, on the south end of the basin, as well as extending some sidewalks and loading docks. The city must present FWC with a request for funds by Jan. 31, 2015, so the commission asked Pruitt to come back at the next meeting with more concrete ideas and numbers for the project. Golf Course Numbers Are UpFinance Director Ted Byrd presented commissioners with a six-month budget recap on Fiscal Year 2014. So far, the general fund's revenues exceed its expenses and Director Byrd said the city's budget is "not too bad at the halfway mark." "We're not going to be swimming in cash, but we'll be in decent shape going into scal year 2015." he said. The positive review was contributed, in part, by the Clewiston Public Golf Course's increase in revenues, compared to last scal year. Mayor Roland was impressed with the change from last year to this year and said the new golf pro, Robbie Rush, was the reason the golf course has seen so much more play. "I wish I had pictures of the times I saw between 18 and 22 women on the putting green taking a lesson all at one time. Or the times that we had all the kids lined up taking lessons," said Mayor Roland, who asked City Manager Perry to try and get Rush committed to next year. Robbie Rush is leaving to serve as golf pro at another club during the summer months, and of cials are itching to get Rush back at the Clewiston course this fall.

I DON’T KNOW IF I WANT TO FIGHT THAT BATTLE.COMMISSIONER JULIO RODRIGUEZ At around 8:24 p.m. on Tuesday, May 20, deputies responded to a report of gun re in the area of Liberty Avenue and Fleetwood Street in the Twin Lakes mobile home park, the Hendry County Sheriff's Of ce (HCSO) is reporting. When deputies arrived on scene, they found at least one victim who was transported to Hendry Regional Medical Center for treatment, according to information released by HCSO. Shortly after deputies arrived at the scene, a second call came in regarding shots red on Joshua Boulevard. As deputies traveled to the location, it is reported that a deputy was following behind a vehicle who was driving erratically before pulling in to the house on Joshua Boulevard that deputies were responding to. The driver reportedly exited the vehicle and ran into the home, which, according to reports, had been shot into. Deputies then made contact with the man and identi ed him as 21-year-old Angel Herrera. A short time later, Herrera was arrested, though he was not charged in connection to the shooting, he was charged with possession of a rearm by a convicted delinquent, possession of ammunition by a convicted delinquent, possession of marijuana with the intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia. Herrera is being held at the Hendry County Jail on a $36,500 bond. HCSO is continuing to investigate the shooting and is following up on all leads. Anyone with information regarding the shooting is asked to contact the Hendry County Sheriff's Of ce at 863-674-5600 or 863-805-5000, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477). All callers will remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.

On April 25, she signed with the new university along with her parents, her grandmother and new coach, Donnie Stephen. BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsA new store opened in Clewiston last weekend. Tucked comfortably in the corner near Git ‘n Split and Western Union, Art By Josh And More offers residents access to high-end art supplies, including oil paints, acrylics, paint brushes, colored pencils and canvases, fabrics, prints of paintings and silk owers accompanied by delicate vases and baskets. Art By Josh And More owners Cathy Martinez and Josh Martinez Sr. have been working diligently for the past couple months to get the store together before the grand opening on May 17. Using a trio of blue balloons to mark the grand opening that Saturday, Mrs. Martinez joked that people would think they were announcing the birth of a baby boy. But the blue, she said, represented autism -the main reason they were there, standing in the store. Mr. and Mrs. Martinez’s son, Josh Jr., has autism. And while using art as a therapy, Josh discovered an incredible talent that catapulted him to his current position: selling his own paintings in his own store. Josh has an uncanny knack for pairing colors, shapes and objects to create a beautiful collage worthy of a frame and a focal point. Over the years, Josh has created hundreds of pieces of art and has sold them at different festivals and events, as well as online at his website, www. abstractjoshi.wordpress.com. Now, Josh can add brick and mortar to his many mediums. The store offers numerous Art by Josh paintings, which hang strategically on the newly painted wall behind the cash register -many of his pieces are also available as prints. “I think he’s really proud of himself. He was very excited. He doesn’t know what to do with himself,” said Mrs. Martinez, as Josh walked with his hands in his pockets around the store. Josh revealed another creative talent of his at the grand opening: silk owers arranged appealingly in varying vases throughout the store. “He loves putting together ower arrangements,” said Mrs. Martinez. “Just the way he puts them together, they look so appealing.” Mrs. Martinez said they would be working on more ower arrangements for the future. Mr. and Mrs. Martinez also made sure to include books and brochures for parents to learn more about autism. “We’re going to have a pretty good library,” she said. Walking around the store and looking at the shelves stocked with colorful paints and decorations, then catching a glimpse of the artwork hanging on the red wall, it isn’t hard to notice the hard work and effort that went into making the new store a reality; it also isn’t hard to see the supportive parents standing behind the cash register who recognized their child’s talent and ran with it.

15 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 22, 2014 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe American Flamingo is mostly found in the West Indies, with some showing up in South Florida, Texas, South America, the Yucatan Peninsula and the Galapagos Islands. These birds, who were formally known as Greater Flamingos, are seen almost annually in the Everglades. Recently, a record-breaking 147 Flamingos were con rmed in a group at an undisclosed location in Palm Beach County, however, only two birds were observed last week at the same location. In order to protect themselves from predators, these birds usually live and feed in group, which are called a "colony," " amboyance," " urry," "regiment" or "strand" of amingos. Adult birds are tall and pink, with a long, lean, curved neck and a black-tipped bill with a downward bend. Young Flamingos are born gray and white, but turn pink when they are about two years old. The American Flamingo's voice is a honking goose-like, "huh-huh-huh." Their bent bills allow them to feed on plankton, tiny sh, y larvae and other organisms found in muddy ats or shallow water. They use their long legs and webbed feet to stir up the water bottom and then bury their bills or entire head to suck up mud and water. Morsels of food are then ltered from the mud with their beak and excess liquid is expelled. American Flamingos are known to reproduce in the Bahamas, Cuba, Mexico and Ecuador. At the beginning of nesting season they perform courtship displays with hundreds moving together in a coordinated walk. Once mating is complete, a pair takes turns incubating their single egg.InformationIf you would like to join Hendry-Glades Audubon volunteers on June 12 or 14, email to Margaret England at sta5birding@embarqmail. com with your name and contact information, including an emergency cell number, the date you would like to participate, and the number of people in your party.

Box 2340, La Belle, FL 33975) or by fax (863674-4914). Karson Turner, Chairman Hendry County Board of County Commissioners Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 22, 2014 16 The grand-scale economic development project is two years in the making and Gillman spoke of the fragile elements that all came together to make the project a reality. The city of Clewiston, Florida Power and Light, Florida City Gas, the Department of Environmental Protection, the Department of Transportation, Enterprise Florida and U.S. Sugar Corp. all play a role in the development of the project, said Gillman, and if any of those components fall apart, the deal could fall apart. “On a project of this magnitude, you never go away, you never take a break, you never relax, because they will nd somewhere else to go,” said Gillman in an interview following the ceremony. South Florida certainly is the ideal location for BioNitrogen -having all the components necessary for its production -but Gillman’s constant determination brought the urea fertilizer company to Hendry County, instead of Orlando, Miami or along either coast. In fact, Hendry County will house the rst cleantech urea fertilizer plant in the state of Florida. “We chose this site, not just because state and local of cials recommended it, but because of the jobs and the opportunities in this area. There’s feedstock, there’s transportation, there’s all the basic inputs that we need in our recipe to make this a success,” said BioNitrogen President and CFO Bryan Kornegay Jr. BioNitrogen produces urea fertilizer, but instead of using the normal feedstock of natural gas and coal, which can be detrimental to the environment, BioNitrogen uses woody biomass as feedstock in a patented process that Kornegay claims could be carbon negative. “Our company’s patented process allows us to use woody biomass and other waste products as feedstock. This not only reduces the co2 emissions from people burning or burying this feedstock, but it also reduces the co2 emissions from a typical natural gas or carbon-based urea plant. In fact, we believe our process is not only carbon neutral, but possibly carbon negative,” said Kornegay. Some examples of the woody biomass that BioNitrogen can use to make its fertilizer include corn leaves and stalks, palm fronds, rice and peanut hulls, sugarcane bagasse, paper goods and municipal waste wood. According to Kornegay, the city of Clewiston has already pledged to take its woody biomass waste to the plant, a process that will bene t both BioNitrogen and the Clewiston. BioNitrogen is not only bringing a strong ecological sensibility to Hendry County, it is also bringing strong economic ties to the area, as well. Kornegay said the company is in the process of negotiating with Florida Power and Light for its newly approved economic development rate, signed a 25-year contract that supplies the Hendry County plant with woody biomass feedstock and signed a 25-year offtake agreement with United Suppliers, ensuring a market for its future output. In addition, Kornegay announced that the plant has received, thanks to the Industrial Development Authority of Hendry County, $300 million in bonds to be used towards the construction of the plant, and over $10 million in upfront inducements from the local community and the state. “This ceremony does mark the beginning of a long-term relationship with the state of Florida and with Hendry County and the local community. We expect to be here for a long time,” said Kornegay. The excitement of the morning was certainly palpable, but only truly recognizable when the number of jobs the endeavor is expected to create was revealed. During the initial 18-month building period, 250 construction jobs are expected to be created, with 55 full-time positions expected to be created when the plant is opened for operation. Gillman said he always asks every project to give full consideration to Hendry County residents for their jobs. However, even if all 55 positions are not lled by Hendry County residents, Gillman said the positions will attract people to the area who will hopefully buy a house and put their children in the school system. “It’s an opportunity for us to gain residents, on top of giving Hendry County people jobs,” said Gillman. And what about those who will not directly bene t from an employment opportunity at BioNitrogen? Gillman said this project is a “monster property tax generator.” Gillman said much of the property in Hendry County is nontaxable because it is either public land, a park or used for agriculture, a project like this carries a huge tax bill that will go to the county, the school board and Hendry Regional Medical Center. In fact, Kornegay said in his speech that BioNitrogen is expected to add $1 million to the school board system alone over the next 40 years. With such impressive prospects for Hendry County’s future, it is no wonder that city and county of cials are so excited about this project. They are not, however, the only ones excited -nor surprised -to see such huge economic development in Hendry County. “It’s amazing how one community can be so focused and so dedicated on trying to make sure that their community grew, prospered and was headed in the right direction,” said state Rep. Matt Hudson, who represents Hendry County in Tallahassee. “It’s no wonder we’re standing here today on the precipice of a major announcement, major capital infrastructure and jobs that are going to create strong families and an even stronger community for next generations.” INCContinued From Page 1 PHOTO/ ASHLEY SMITH
