BY PATTY BRANT Special to e Clewiston NewsSince the July 22 county commission meeting, Hendry County taxpayers have a better idea of how much they will be paying in property taxes this coming year. County Administrator Charles Chapman explained that the board agreed to set the tentative millage rate at 8.8209 mills 1.l mills higher than 2013/14. That rate will include $101,000 to the Hendry County Sheriff’s Of ce for four deputies for six months. The annual millage budget hearings will be held in September. The rst will be in Clewiston City Hall on Sept. 9 and the nal hearing will be held at the courthouse in LaBelle on Sept. 23. At either of those meetings, the tentative millage may be lowered but BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsA Clewiston resident dug up a surprise while doing yard work last Sunday afternoon -a surprise that prompted a response from the Clewiston Police Department and the Lee County Bomb Squad. Of cers were called to the 600 block of E. Trinidad Avenue in Clewiston on July 27, with reports that a homeowner had stumbled upon a grenade while doing work in his yard, said Lieutenant Michael Rowan, of the Clewiston Police Department. Of cers called on the help of the Lee County Bomb Squad to ensure BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsQ: What is your name? A: My name is Butch Wilson. That’s a nickname I acquired when I was three weeks old. I had surgery and the doctor said he had butchered on me. They didn’t know if I was going to live. My real name is William Paul Wilson but I acquired the name Butch and my family started calling me Butch. Q: Where did you grow up? A: I grew up in South Bay. South Bay is very similar to Clewiston. It’s a small rural town, however we never had the money circulating around South Bay as you do here in Clewiston, because we weren’t blessed to have a large industry like U.S. Sugar, so everyone in the community pitched in and made things happen. I played in a lot of sports programs. Baseball, especially, was a large program. I played a lot of baseball. There wasn’t a lot of other things to do so us guys would get together and we turned the North New River Canal that goes through South Bay. That was our municipal pool. That was where I learned to swim. Also, out on Lake Okeechobee. I did a lot of shing. As I grew a little older, when I was in the eighth grade, my parents entrusted me with a ri e, and shotgun, and us guys would just go walking through town. We were responsible and did not load our guns, but just walked right through town with our guns over our backs, ve or six of us, and go out in the woods hunting. It was really unique; a really unique experience. Q: Where you always interested in history, fossils? A: Not really. It was unfortunate, but I was always more interested in the living things. I did not really have a mentor, someone to encourage me and explain fossils. I acquired that interest later in life.

Rocket Attacks and IsraelBY DR. TODD BUCK First Baptist Church of ClewistonWhat should the Christian (not just American) response to the Middle East con ict be? First we must pray for peace -as with any nation. We know Israel was chosen by God from all the peoples of the world -and this climaxed in Jesus Christ, the Messiah. "The LORD your God has chosen you to be a people for his treasured possession, out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth" (Deut. 7:6). God also promised the disputed land from the time of Abraham onward. God said to Moses, "This is the land of which I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, I will give it to your offspring'" (Deut. 34:4). A problem arises because both the blessed status of the people and the privileged right to the land are conditional on Israel's keeping the covenant God made with her. God said to Israel, "If you will indeed obey my voice and keep my covenant, you shall be my treasured possession among all peoples" (Exodus 19:5). When Israel suffered in captivity in Babylon, Daniel prayed, "O Lord ... we have sinned and done wrong. ... To you, O Lord, belongs righteousness, but to us open shame ... to all Israel ... in all the lands to which you have driven them, because of the treachery that they have committed against you" (Daniel 9:4-7). Israel has no absolute divine right to the land of promise when she is breaking the covenant of promise. This does not mean that other nations have the right to molest or attack Israel. She still has human rights even if she has forfeited her divine right for a time. Israel as a whole today rejects her Messiah, Jesus Christ, God's Son. God promised that to Israel "a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace" (Isaiah 9:6-7). But with tears this Prince of Peace looked out over Jerusalem and said, "Would that you ... had known on this day the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes ... You did not know the time of your visitation" (Luke 19:42-44). When the builders rejected the Cornerstone, Jesus said, "The kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people producing its fruits" (Matt. 21:43). God has saving purposes for ethnic Israel (Rom. 11:25-26). But for now His people are at war with God in rejecting the gospel of His Son (Rom. 11:28). God has expanded His saving work to embrace all peoples (including Arabs in general, and even Palestinians) who will trust His Son and depend on His death and resurrection for salvation. "Is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles also? Yes, of Gentiles also, since God is one. He will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith" (Rom. 3:29-30). The Christian plea in the Middle East to Palestinians and Jews is: "Believe on the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved" (Acts 16:31). The future is bright -when both Jewish and Gentile followers of King Jesus inherit the earth (not just the land), without lifting sword or gun. Until then justice must rule.

SUMMER SPECIAL! Obituaries 5 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 31, 2014 BY PAT DOBBINS Florida Department Of HealthAccording to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), local transmission of chikungunya is now being reported in other countries in the Caribbean. Since the end of June 2014, the following Caribbean countries have reported cases of chikungunya: Anguilla, Antigua, British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Dominican Republic, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Guyana, Haiti, Martinique, Puerto Rico, Saint Barthelemy, Saint Kitts, Saint Lucia, Saint Martin (French), Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Saint Maarten (Dutch), Turks and Caicos Islands, U.S. Virgin Islands. Travelers who go to these islands in the Caribbean are at risk of getting chikungunya. In addition, travelers to Africa, Asia, and islands in the Indian Ocean and Western Paci c are also at risk, as the virus is present in many of these areas. The mosquito that carries chikungunya virus can bite during the day and night, both indoors and outdoors, and often lives around buildings in urban areas. The CDC recommends that anyone traveling to the Caribbean should protect themselves from mosquito bites. However, some people may be more likely to get chikungunya because of certain risk factors. Travelers in high-risk groups should discuss their travel plans with their health care provider. The high-risk groups include the following:  People who have arthritis  People with serious underlying medical conditions (such as high blood pressure, heart disease or diabetes)  People older than 65  Women who are late in their pregnancies, because of the risk to babies born at the time their mother is sick  Long-term travelers, including missionaries and humanitarian aid workers and people visiting friends and relatives  People who might have dif culty avoiding mosquito bites, such as those planning to spend a lot of time outdoors or staying in rooms without window screens or air conditioning. Chikungunya is an illness caused by a virus that spreads through mosquito bites. The most common symptoms of chikungunya are fever and joint pain. Other symptoms may include headache, muscle pain, joint swelling or rash. Chikungunya disease rarely results in death, but the symptoms can be severe and disabling. Most people who get sick feel better within a week. In some people, the joint pain may last for months or years. There is currently no vaccine or medicine to prevent chikungunya. The only way to prevent chikungunya is to prevent mosquito bites. Preventing bites can be dif cult but it is important, as anyone can get sick after just one bite. Follow these steps to reduce the chances of being bitten by mosquitoes during a trip. Prevent mosquito bites: Cover exposed skin by wearing long-sleeved shirts, long pants and hats. Use an appropriate insect repellent as directed. Higher percentages of active ingredient provide longer protection. Use products with the following active ingredients:  DEET -Products containing DEET include Off!, Cutter, Sawyer and Ultrathon  Picaridin -Cutter Advanced, Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus and Autan (outside the US)  Oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE) -Repel and Off! Botanicals  IR3535 -Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus Expedition and SkinSmart Always follow product directions and reapply as directed. If you are also using sunscreen, apply sunscreen rst and insect repellent second. Follow package directions when applying repellent on children. Avoid applying repellent to their hands, eyes, and mouth. Stay and sleep in screened or air conditioned rooms. Use a bed net if the area where you are sleeping is exposed to the outdoors. If you feel sick and think you may have chikungunya: Talk to a health care provider if you feel seriously ill, especially if you have a fever. Tell them about any of your travels. Get lots of rest and drink plenty of liquids. Avoid spreading the disease by preventing more mosquito bites. Chikungunya Fever: Message to Travelers Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 4.9 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.43/g Sunday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 8,237 gas outlets in Florida. This compares with the national average that has fallen 4.9 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.51/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 15.6 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 17.7 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 16.5 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 11.7 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. “The national average as of today has been on decline for a month straight,” said GasBuddy. com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “The drop in gas prices during the middle of the summer certainly has been welcome relief to families and individuals alike who are hitting the road during the peak of the summer driving season. The national average now stands at its lowest point since March of this year, and will likely drop under $3.50/gallon by mid-week. No states in the lower 48 feature average prices over $4/gal, and just 4.1 percent of all stations GasBuddy tracks stand over that level, which is a drop from 8.7 percent a month ago. In addition, a month ago, nearly 75 percent of gas stations were charging over $3.50/gal, while today we see just 38.2 percent of all stations over that levelan impressive decline in price that GasBuddy alerted motorists to weeks ago,” DeHaan said.

FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTHThe Florida Department of Health announced that research grants in the amount of $1,600,000 each are being awarded to the H. Lee Mof tt Cancer Center and Research Institute and the University of Florida. This grant funding will be used to expand research into tobacco-related diseases, such as lung cancer. Lung cancer is the leading cause of all cancer-related deaths, and is the most common tobacco-related cancer. "Florida is creating collaborative research networks to accelerate progress in the care of patients with cancer and tobacco-related disease," said State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. John Armstrong. "These projects will move us closer to becoming the premier destination for cancer treatment, research and prevention." Funding for the awards comes from the James and Esther King Biomedical Research Program which supports initiatives addressing tobacco-related diseases including cancer, cardiovascular disease, stroke, and pulmonary disease. The Department will issue a new funding opportunity announcement for the King program as well as the Bankhead-Coley Cancer Research Program prior to July 15. H. Lee Mof tt's research project will seek to detect lung cancer early, when it may be treated more successfully. The research focuses on improving the accuracy of cancer scanning using a type of x-ray scan called low-dose CT screening. Mof tt plans to translate the work of their research teams into improved computer software to analyze the scans and provide more accurate results. Mof tt will advance the quality of care and Florida's research infrastructure by sharing everything in this project (which includes the screening methods, computer software programs, and education materials) with hospitals, universities and research institutions in Florida. Mof tt plans to engage health care providers and the community to ensure that the people at high risk know that screening is a lifesaving choice. The University of Florida will use this new grant to expand an existing research network that includes nearly 40 percent of all Floridians through a network of 22 hospitals, 416 clinics, and more than 3,000 physicians. This project will seek to improve quality of care for tobaccorelated diseases by testing new ways of providing care in real-world clinical settings. The project is signi cant because it will increase enrollment of vulnerable populations in research studies to better understand ways of improving health outcomes for everyone in Florida. The project will expand the existing research network, provide education for physicians on conducting research in real-world settings, and collaborate with the Florida Department of Health to reduce regulatory barriers to conducting large-scale research at many institutions. State Representative Marti Coley said, "Working to nd better treatments and a cure for tobacco-related diseases, such as lung cancer, is so important for the citizens of Florida. I want to express my congratulations to the research teams that have been awarded these critical grants and wish them great success." State Senator Eleanor Sobel said, "It is important for Florida to stay on the frontline of the effort to address all cancers and speci cally those tied to tobacco use. This grant funding from the James and Esther King Biomedical Research Program will assist these research institutions in their mission to nd cures and share that information with the rest of the state." Dr. Daniel Armstrong, Chair of the Biomedical Research Advisory Council said, "As the state strategic research priorities were being developed, the Biomedical Research Advisory Council recognized an opportunity to fund enduring infrastructure in the prevention, diagnosis and cure of tobacco-related diseases. This infrastructure can bene t investigators across the state and help us realize advances to reduce cancer burden. The funded projects demonstrate desired collaboration across institutions, shared scienti c advisory boards, and meaningful ways to include input from research participants and community advisors. Importantly, these projects include speci c plans to share results and make infrastructure available to any researcher in Florida." "We applaud the state's continued commitment to funding cancer research and the effort to position Florida as the premier destination for cancer treatment and research," said Thomas Sellers, PhD, MPH, center director and executive vice president of Mof tt Cancer Center the only NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center based in Florida. "This grant will be used to improve the excellent research being conducted at Mof tt and the funding will enable greater collaboration among the network of research institutions across the state." University of Florida President Bernie Machen said, "This grant funding enables us to expand on the nationally-recognized research we have been conducting for several years. A key distinction of the Clinical and Translational Science Institute at the University of Florida is to serve as a central source which connects resources, people and ideas that lead to increased collaboration and new discoveries." Dr. Myra M. Hurt, Senior Associate Dean for Research, Graduate and Undergraduate Programs at the Florida State University College of Medicine said, "We are pleased to collaborate on this grant with the University of Florida that will accelerate the sharing of information across the research community and lead to increased potential for better prevention technology and new treatments for patients." Stephanie Leeds, vice president for advocacy in the Florida Division of the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) said, "We appreciate the strategic grant funding that the Florida Department of Health has awarded to these distinguished institutions. Cancers that develop from the use of tobacco affects so many Floridians and their families. It is critical that we remain relentless in our pursuit of better prevention methods, improved treatment and collaborative research throughout our state." Martha Bogdan, President and CEO for the American Lung Association in Florida said, "Lung cancer is the #1 cancer killer of women, killing almost twice as many women as any other cancer. On average, less than half of all women diagnosed with lung cancer will be alive one year after their diagnosis. The American Lung Association in Florida applauds this investment of research by the James and Ester King Research Program and we remain committed to working toward a day when Florida families will be free from the pain and loss caused by tobaccorelated illnesses." Dr. Charles E. Wood, Chair of the Department of Physiology and Functional Genomics at the University of Florida and the American Heart Association member on the Biomedical Research Advisory Council, said, "These awards provide critical resources that will allow for vibrant research on diseases that stem from tobacco use. We are particularly pleased by the new level of collaboration that is now made possible with these speci c projects."

In addition, more acres are now available for hunting use at the Lake Marion Creek and Southern Glades management areas. Open for a ninth season, hunters will have access this year to approximately 5,143 acres in the popular Rocky Glades Public Small Game Hunting Area in western Miami-Dade County. Non-native reptile hunting is also available there. Open for a seventh season, hunters will have access this year to approximately 1,185 acres in the C-23/C-24 Public Small Game Hunting Area in St. Lucie County.

The state of Florida is selling the property to Blue Spoon, LLC for the purpose of putting in a large-scale classi ed military training facility. The owner has a similar facility in Copeland in Collier County, Specialized training at the site will include weapons handling and ring. The board approved the special exception for a training facility, temporary structures and "heavy recreational" use -for equipment and vehicle use. Special accommodations will be made for noise, density and buffering of the site.

Q: How did you get into the role you nd yourself in today? A: There was a position. I had been with U.S. Sugar for 32 years. They had to let a lot of us go. They got into nancial situation. They were very generous in the fact that they gave us a week for every year we had been employed with the company. But it still left me high and dry. I was 56 years old. I majored in history in college, up at Lee University in Cleveland, Tenn. I applied for the job, wasn't sure if I met the credentials or requirements, but they hired me. They didn't realize, and I jokingly say, the board turned a kid loose in a candy store. Q: What is your favorite aspect of the job? A: I enjoy meeting people, telling them about the history and the heritage of our area. I think that's the most rewarding aspect: meeting people with enquiring minds who come in here. The museum is kind of unique because, most small towns, it's unfortunate, and I'm guilty myself, but when you go into a small town, you have small expectations as a visitor. Much of this was already in place when I came here. I've worked primarily on the natural history, but people are always surprised because we're fortunate to have a building that has something of this size that is part of our community. It's always surprising to the locals. Unfortunately, I would probably say 80 or 90 percent of the adults living in Clewiston have never been in this museum. And you think about that, but how many times did you go in your local museum where you grew up. You'll go out of state and out of county, and when you're visiting somewhere you get an enquiring mind, you're wanting to know about the things that are on the other side of the fence, so to speak. But right in your own backyard, you don't have the same interest.

After rubbing the “magic germs” into the hands of the eager volunteers, a black light was used so that the kids could see all of the germs. The kids were then taught the proper way to wash their hands by using the 20-second rule or singing the tune of the “Happy Birthday Song” or the “ABC Song.” Nurse Kevin also read a book about germs to the kids and talked to them about other healthy habits such as sneezing and coughing into your elbow.

11 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 31, 2014 Ray Sullivan Sr. is turning 90, and his children are throwing him a party. But its no ordinary party. The festivities will be located at the South Bay Crossroads Center at 50 Levee Rd., South Bay, where Ray and his family will be receiving friends who want to congratulate the nonagenarian and share memories of life in the Glades. Please do not bring gifts. Only your memories and best wishes. Drop by on Saturday, August 2 between the hours of 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. and enjoy punch, hors d’ oeuvres and a lot of stories and memories shared among friends. Ray began making friends over 70 years ago coming to the Glades from Wauchula, Fla. after graduating from high school. He married Judy McCarson, the love of his life and spent the next 64 years with her. They had four children, Ray (Baby Ray) Sullivan Jr., Gail Rushing, Marion Primmer and Judy Ann Sullivan. Ray served his country during World War II as a sergeant in the Marine Corps. He served the community of South Bay as councilman and Mayor, and he served the people of the Glades through a variety of businesses: Sullivan’s Sunoco, The South Bay Variety Store, Wilson’s Superette and The Lunch Box -all in South Bay. He and Judy’s nal enterprise was cooking and serving school lunches at Glades Day School. Ray’s birthday party is meant to serve as an opportunity for Glades folk to come together and celebrate one another in a place that everyone, at one time or another, called home. Topics of conversation might be: Did Willit’s Store really sell everything? Could Principal Oulette’s paddle be heard all over South Bay Elementary? Is it true that nine of the 11 starters on the 1966 Suncoast Conference Champion Belle Glade Golden Rams came from South Bay? No Gifts. No RSVP. Bring yourself and your family. We want to see you. Ray Sullivan Sr. Invites to Birthday Sullivan Sr. ...RAY AND HIS FAMILY WILL BE RECEIVING FRIENDS WHO WANT TO CONGRATULATE THE NONAGENARIAN AND SHARE MEMORIES OF LIFE IN THE GLADES. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles is reminding everyone to take additional steps to ensure that no child is left unattended in a vehicle this summer. This year, there have been two reported cases in Florida of children dying of heatstroke after being left in cars. Don’t be distracted when leaving your vehicle and take a second look in the back seat to ensure a child is not left behind. Getting into a car that has been sitting in the sun on a hot summer day in Florida can be unbearable. The inside of a vehicle can heat up by 20 degrees in just 10 minutes and cracking a window open does little to keep the vehicle cool. A child’s body temperature can rise three to ve times faster than an adult’s and heatstroke in a closed vehicle can occur when the temperature is as low as 57 degrees outside. For the safety of your children, never leave a child unattended in a vehicle, even for a short period of time. Florida law makes it a criminal offense to leave a child under the age of 6 unattended in a vehicle. Tips for preventing heatstroke deaths in vehicles: NEVER leave any child unattended in a vehicle. Put something in the back seat that you will need at your nal destination like a purse, briefcase, cell phone or shoe that will remind you to look in the back seat. If you see a child unattended in a vehicle, call 911. After checking to make sure your vehicle is empty, always lock it and teach children not to play in vehicles. Pets are also susceptible to heatstroke if left unattended in a closed vehicle as well. A study by researchers at San Francisco State University showed that, on average, 38 children die each year as a result of heatstroke after being left in a closed vehicle. Since 1998, 66 child heatstroke deaths have occurred in Florida for this reason, more than any other state. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement. The Department is leading the way to A Safer Florida through the ef cient and professional execution of its core mission: the issuance of driver licenses, vehicle tags and titles and operation of the Florida Highway Patrol.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 31, 2014 14 that the grenade was not active. According to Lt. Rowan, the grenade was in fact a real grenade, but was hallowed out in the middle and did not contain any explosive devices. “It was more or less a souvenir,” said Lt. Rowan, adding that the grenade was probably left by a previous homeowner. This marks the third incident where the Clewiston Police Department has been called due to reports of a potential grenade since April 2013. The rst incident occurred in late April 2013 when an employee discovered a hand grenade placed conspicuously atop a pay phone outside of Walmart. The grenade was found to be inactive, however, the incident was enough to shut down Walmart for several hours until law enforcement agencies fully assessed the situation. The second incident occurred more than six months later in January 2014 and also resulted in the shutdown of Walmart for an hour or more. Of cers were called to the store after employees noticed what looked to be a hand grenade laying underneath a shelf in the jewelry section. The “grenade” turned out to be merely a toy the store sold at the time. GRENADESContinued From Page 1 BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsAiming to promote the easy grace and bountiful beauty of Hendry County, the Clewiston Chamber of Commerce is inviting the area’s amateur photographers to take up their cameras, point and shoot the most quintessential aspects of the region. The Capturing Clewiston Photo Contest and Beyond is hosted by the Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by Clewiston and Hendry County businesses. The contest includes three age categories -junior, adult and senior -and features 12 categories to which one photograph can be submitted. Categories include nature, pets, celebrations, recreation, wildlife, birds and birding, black and white, skyline views, farming and ranching, sugar cane, best of Lake Okeechobee and local Clewiston. First making an appearance in summer 2013, the Capturing Clewiston Photo Contest was the design of Chamber Vice President John Wellslager, whose vision of creating a showpiece that showed off the many assets of Clewiston and surrounding Hendry County became reality with the coffee table photography book. Coming into its second year, the contest will feature a few new changes compared to last. Chamber President Denise Hatton announced that the contest seeks to promote Hendry County as a whole, offering only one Clewiston-devoted category in 2014. Hatton also said the contest winner will be decided by a popular vote, but the front page picture will be decided by the corporate sponsors. This year’s winner will receive a cash prize and prominence in the photo book designed to be displayed on coffee tables across the county, state and nation. The contest runs from Aug. 1 to Sept. 5. Visit the Chamber of Commerce’s website at www.clewiston.org for more information.

Industrial wastewater is treated by a closed loop recycle system. The system will not discharge to groundwater or surface water. A water gain/loss percent is to be calculated to insure the closed loop system is functioning as intended. The facility will be located at latitude 26 43’ 08.3” N, longitude 81 29’ 36.5” W, on 3655 State Road 80, Labelle, Florida 33935 in Hendry County. The Department has assigned permit le number FLA861863-001-IW9A to the proposed project. The intent to issue, application le, and draft permit are available for public inspection during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at the Department’s South District Of ce, 2295 Victoria Ave, Suite 364, Ft. Myers, Florida 33901-3875, at phone number (239) 344-5600. The Department will issue the permit as drafted unless a timely petition for an administrative hearing is led under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, within fourteen days of receipt of notice. The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set forth below. A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department’s proposed permitting decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be led (received by the Clerk) in the Of ce of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida Administrative Code, a person may request an extension of the time for ling a petition for an administrative hearing. The request must be led (received by the Clerk) in the Of ce of General Counsel before the end of the time period for ling a petition for an administrative hearing. Petitions led by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must be led within fourteen days of publication of the notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs rst. Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, however, also allows that any person who has asked the Department in writing for notice of agency action may le a petition within fourteen days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publication. The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of ling. The failure of any person to le a petition or request for an extension of time within fourteen days of receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of that person’s right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding of cer upon the ling of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Florida Administrative Code. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department’s action is based must contain the following information, as indicated in Rule 28-106.201, Florida Administrative Code: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency’s le or identi cation number, if known; (b) The name, address, any e-mail address, any facsimile number, and telephone number of the petitioner, if the petitioner is not represented by an attorney or a quali ed representative; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner’s representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner’s substantial interests will be affected by the determination; (c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the Department’s decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the speci c facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modi cation of the Department’s proposed action; (f) A statement of the speci c rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modi cation of the Department’s proposed action, including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the speci c rules or statutes; and (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action petitioner wishes the Department to take with respect to the Department’s proposed action. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate nal agency action, the ling of a petition means that the Department’s nal action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such nal decision of the Department have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. Mediation under Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, is not available for this proceeding. 466503 CN 7/31/2014
