County graduation rate soars


LARRY CLIFTON
Staff Writer


More Sumter County students
are graduating than ever before,
according to a recent report
from the Florida Department of
Education.
Principal, guidance coun-
selor, and the school superin-
tendent explained why they
believe Sumter's graduation
rates are almost seven percent-
age points higher than the state
average.
"Accountability. Everyone in
the system, administrators,
teachers and students are ac-
countable for their work This
results in an individualized
focus on the child's needs," said


Sumter County School District's 2008-09 graduation rate is 83.2 percent, an
increase of 10 percent from the 2005 school year and well above the
graduation rate of 76.3 percent for the state of Florida.


Richard Hampton, principal of
Wildwood Middle/High School.
Sumter County School Dis-
trict's 2008-09 graduation rate is
83.2 percent, an increase of 10
percent from the 2005 school
year and well above the gradua-
tion rate of 76.3 percent for the
state of Florida.
Guidance Counselor Marilyn
Noe, of South Sumter High
School, attributes the increase
to implementation of the Credit
Recovery Program.
"I think the Credit Recovery
Program at South Sumter High
School has had a significant im-


pact over the years. When stu-
dents are behind in credits or
their GPAs are low, they can
work in the computer lab and
complete course work on-line,"
said Noe.
"It is a rigorous curriculum,
but when the students complete
and 'fix' the issues that often
cause them to drop out ... they
get back their confidence and
have hope that graduation is
within reach," she said.
The Florida Department of
Education actually provided
three different graduation rates,
each one based on current for-


mulas utilized nationwide.
Sumter exceeded the state aver-
age in all three calculations and
improved since last year, ac-
cording to School Supt. Rick.
Shirley.
Shirley acknowledged
progress like this does not occur
without the hard work of stu-
dents, teachers and administra-
tors. Shirley believes the
(graduation) results reflect a
sound implementation of re-
sources and policies in the
classrooms.
Students are receiving a bet-
ter education at elementary and


middle school levels that con-
tribute to a better graduation
rate, Shirley said.
"Smaller class sizes, account-
ability, and an emphasis on
math and reading skills are
leaving students better pre-
pared for high school," he said.
"A while ago, we went from
six periods in a school day to
seven periods per day, and that
is a fundamental reason for our
increase in graduation rates.
"Students used to have. four
years to earn 24 course credits
and that was it. With the seven
periods (courses) per day, a stu-
dent who is struggling has more
opportunity because there are
28 credits offered," Shirley said.

Project set

for lake
LARRY CLIFTON
Staff Writer


Lake Okahumpka, a
670-acre body of water
between the turnpike
and County Road 44,
near Wildwood, is
scheduled to have 15
acres of dense aquatic
growth removed from
an area adjacent to the
Sumter County Park and
Boat ramp.
In an effort to "en-
hance wading bird and
fish population and in-
crease overall habitat
diversity," 60,000 cubic
yards of muck and an-
other 60,000 cubic yards
of hydrilla, tussocks and
other dense plant mate-
rial will be removed, ac-
cording to Florida
Wildlife Commission
(FWC) in a letter ad-
dressed to the county.
There are approxi-
mately 100 acres of tus-
socks, hydrilla and other
dense plant life just
under the surface of the
lake that is stunting the
population of wildlife
and fish.
Getting rid of the thick
aquatic plants will also
allow boat operators to
navigate freely without
their propellers con-
stantly getting entangled
in hydrilla and tussocks.
The state intends to
begin work in February
and complete the proj-
ect mid-May of next
year.
The material will be"
excavated and trans-
ported by barge, and silt
barriers will be utilized
to prevent material from

Church has 'Pawn Shop Christmas'


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer-

Christmas messages and fun ar-
rive in a variety of ways and
through a variety of mediums.
For the Church of the Fisherman
in Lake Panasoffkee and some of
their congregation members, this
year's message was delivered
through music and on-stage action.
Church music director Rob Clark
wrote "The Pawn Shop Christmas"
- an inspiring story with humor,


drama and music.
Clark's wife Shaz directed the
play.
"The musical was a lot of fun to
write and perform, and I hope the
message of the play was clear -
Christ gives extravagant love, and
because of that love we can love
each other extravagantly and give
love back to Him."
"Keeping that focus is what gives
peace during the stress and worry
over life's challenge, even when we
don't understand our circum-


stances. I hope that anyone who
hasn't experienced that supernatu-
ral love and peace will try to find
out more."
Clark also got help from family
members. His mother Arlene wrote
act II.
"Her spiritual wisdom and in-
sight really helped to make the mu-
sical worshipful as well as fun. I
hope that those who came had a
good time and left refreshed,"
Clark said.
The play was about a couple fac-


ing financial difficulties during the
Christmas season and was based on
the story "The Gift of the Magi,"
Clark said.
In Clark's adaptation, the hus-
band wants a transmission for the
truck he inherited from his grand-
father and the wife wants a stone
for the ring she inherited from her
grandmother, but they don't have
the money.
The story is a journey that helps
them understand - material things
aren't what's really important


The finale included a visual and
musical presentation of the Christ
child in the manger with children
in the church participating as an-
gels, shepherds, Mary and Joseph.
The dinner program began at 6
p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 12 in the
church fellowship hall.
Clark expressed his gratitude to
the group of people who partici-
pated in the musical, as well as to
the community for their support.

The plant material is to
be piled on property adja-
cent to the southwest cor-
ner of the lake.
Ultimately, the material


will be transported in
dump trucks to designated
county property and
burned.
According to the FWC
letter, conflict with the
public boat ramp and park
will be minimal and tem-
porary as equipment is
deployed and recovered
during the staging of the
task

Candy Branch, when con-
tacted by telephone.
Branch said the kids
brought in approximately
$1,200 last year.
"We were thinking this
year would be about the
same, but the kids pulled out
all of the stops and finished
strong," said Branch.

Students who are per-
forming well can use the
extra courses to focus on
career-related studies and
electives, so the seven-pe-
riod system benefits all
students, he said.
"We strive to make edu-
cation relevant to our stu-


dents."
He said teachers aren't
always able to convince
students that they need to
learn how to read Shake-
speare's Hamlet, but they
all want to know how to
read a student driver's
handbook so they can
eventually obtain their
driver's license. . :
"We want every child
who possibly can to gradu-
ate with a sound educa-
tion. Even with these


successes, and our dedi-
cated staff, we have still
got some work to do," said
Shirley.

staff puts up the oversized
wooden greeting cards, wish-
ing passersby holiday greet-
ings.
The wooden cards line
County Road 471, from the
front of Webster Elementary
School north.
Police Chief Dennis John-
son said the tradition was
started in the 1970s, through
an effort led 'by the late
Martha Locke. She also
served on the city council.
"We were down in Tampa
and went down Bay Shore
Boulevard," said Locke's
husband Walton.
He said it was the late
1960s or early 1970s.
When Mrs. Locke saw
them, she thought it would be
a good thing to do in Webster.
She got local businesses
involved and in those early
years they had three blocks
of Christmas cards.
With humor, he said he and
his construction company
were even dragged into it
"They (the cards) ran down
471 and even turned on Main
Street"
While there were sign.
painters hired, "most of them
were painted on the carport
there at the house," he said
of their home in the city lim-
its.
He and his employees also


did the work on the electrical
hook-ups, while the power
companies donated the elec-
tricity and actual hook-ups.
"I think it was a wonderful
thing," he said of the cards,
adding that it "puts a lot of
enthusiasm in the commu-
nity."
Johnson said the cards
went up a little later this
year. That was due to
weather and staff shortage,
since budget cuts.
He said the city's more
than glad to store the signs
and put them up during the
holiday season, but they do
have some requirements.
The cards cannot be any
bigger than 4-feet by 8-feet
and must contain a relevant
message - they can't be just
advertisement
The city's annual parade
was on Saturday, Dec. 12 and
drew a large number of en-
tries. The city and commu-
nity also hosted a gathering
after the event which in-
cluded a visit from Santa.
Johnson said they had
more entries than usual be-
cause of weather and parade
cancellations.
First-place winner in this
year's parade was Boy Scout
Troop 313, second place was
the Webster Post Office and
third went to Webster Travel
Park
Johnson noted with humor
that things went off well de-
spite the arrival of the
Grinch, who drew plenty of
"boos" from the crowd of kids
lining the street

The presentation includes a portrayal of the young Jesus teaching in the
temple.



Living Nativity




draws crowd


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

Members of the First
Baptist Church of Bush-
nell give their own spe-
cial gift to the community
each year, drawings thou-
sands of visitors.
Every Christmas sea-
son, members don cloth-
ing designed for an era
long gone and settle into
position for their annual
Living Nativity.
They portray the
events of Christ's life
here in human form,
from birth to death and
resurrection.
The event starts with a
scene from Bethlehem
where Mary and Joseph
were turned away from
the inn. There's a host of
heavenly angels, a
manger scene, wise men,
a young Jesus teaching in
the temple, Lazarus
being brought back from
the dead, and the Lord's
Supper.
Three men are. on
crosses as "Roman sol-
diers" crack the whip


and mourners cry in the
scene from the crucifix-
ion and an angel sits atop
the cave, as he informs
the women that "Christ is
alive" for the resurrec-
tion scene.
The church members
even portray the current
day family, with Jesus
knocking at the door.
Visitors in cars wait pa-
tiently along the side


streets and Main Street
for their turn to drive
through the presentation.
The church hosts the
event free to visitors and
typically draws at least
2,000 people. This year's
presentation was on Sat-
urday and Sunday, Dec.
19 and 20.
For more photos of the
event, visit www.sumter-
countytimes.com.


A visit to Bethlehem was part of the trip at the

Letter to the editor


Thanks for
support
In the last few months,
SCARC, Inc. has been the ben-
eficiary of many gifts that
demonstrate the wonderful
level of community support
that maintains our ability to
enrich the lives of the people
we serve. Not only did these
gifts nourish our bodies and
replenish our bank account,
but they also nourished our
spirit, giving us renewed hope
for the future helping dispel
the gloom and doom of the
economic recession.
Two fundraisers this fall
started the ball rolling. The
2nd annual Lake Panasoffkee
Open fishing tournament was
hosted by Tracy's Point Fish-
ing Lodge on Oct 24. Organ-
ized by Maggie Brock and
James Smith, the tournament
cleared $4,000. Outdoors With-
out Limits (OWL) organized
pontoon boat trips for SCARC
group home residents depart-
ing from Pana-Vista Lodge.
The Speckled Butterbean
restaurant provided a fish fry
for everyone involved. Then a
yard sale on Nov. 14 spon-
sored and organized by the L.
Norman Adams Home
Builders cleared $2,300.
On Monday, Nov. 23, the St.
Catherine United Methodist
Church hosted its annual
Community Thanksgiving
Service to recognize and sup-
port the service to the com-
munity provided by SCARC,
Inc. Grant Grogan, a partici-
pant in SCARC, Inc. programs,
spoke to the gathering offer-
ing his views of the organiza-


tion from "first-hand" experi-
ence. Beautiful music was
presented by Mr. Bernard
Dew at the county's only pipe
organ. An inspiring message
was given by thesRev. Haig
Medzarentz. The congregation
generously donated $750 to
SCARC, Inc. It was truly a joy-
ful and uplifting experience.
Then on Wednesday, Nov.
25, the Bushnell Assembly of
God Church treated partici-
pants, staff and guests to its
15th annual Thanksgiving
feast - turkey and dressing
with all the trimmings - all
prepared and served by the
willing hands of the church
members and coordinated by
Mrs. Janis Harrison. The
Thanksgiving Celebration was
at Dade Battlefield lodge.
Most recently, participants
and staff got into the Christ-
mas spirit by providing gifts
for 31 children from Sumter
Santa. Finally, many people
and organizations have do-
nated wonderful Christmas
gifts for the residents of the
SCARC, Inc. group homes to
help make sure their Christ-
mas is bright
On behalf of everyone asso-
ciated with SCARC, Inc.,
many, many thanks to every-
one who has supported each
and every one of these events,
demonstrating the true spirit
of the holiday season. Merry
Christmas to one and all. Let
us work together toward a
peaceful and more prosper-
ous new year.
Sincerely,

Letters to the editor


The "Idiocy
Of Christmas"
Idiocy: 1. A silly or foolish per-
son (if we may add companies
and corporations, as we address
"The Idiocy of Christmas) 2.
Showing complete lack of
thought or common sense. 3.
Mentally defective.
The historic time of Christmas
for 2,000 years, has been a time
of reflection, reflecting on God's
love for the world in giving of his
Son Jesus Christ to the whole
world as a gift, and found in him
(Jesus Christ) is eternal life!
Special note: God's love was ex-
pressed not only in just giving of
his Son in Bethlehem's manger,
but all the way to the cross of
Calvary! (John 3:16)
During this time of year
(Christmas) the historic reason
for the season is demonstrated
in the lives of people around the
world. The spirit of Christmas is
about 1. Giving which originated
from God himself by giving his
Son Jesus Christ as a gift to the
whole world and by receiving
his Son (God's Gift), we (the
world) can have eternal life in
Heaven.
The spirit of giving surrounds
each of us and has for 2,000
years and it is just as alive in
Christmas 2009 like never be-
fore! The spirit of Christmas
(giving) dominates the atmos-
phere of the world. 2. Christmas
is not only about giving, but the
true spirit of Christmas that
comes from God is about what
this world needs, love, caring,
sharing, kindness, compassion,
peace, joy, hope, blessings and
being blessed, respect, courtesy,
sacrifice, family, friends, appre-
ciation, forgiveness, reconcilia-
tion, worship, praise,
celebration, togetherness, etc.,
etc., all of this is what we need
in the world this Christmas!
As we think of "Idiocy Of
Christmas," we cannot help but
to think of those who take'the
overwhelming majority (80 to 90


percent) as being fools or being
foolish enough to be fooled into
thinking that Christmas is
everything but the recognition
and celebration of Jesus Christ's
birth! Please don't take the ma-
jority of Americans as being
fools! Celebrating the true
meaning of Christmas goes way
beyond our 233 years as a na-
tion. Go back more than 2,000
years!
Again to my point of the "Id-
iocy Of Christmas" is addressed
mainly to the corporate world in
that the majority of the Christ-
mas shoppers are getting tired
of whether or not your corpora-
tion will allow or forbid your
employees to respond to the ma-
jority of your customers with a
"normal, traditional" Merry
Christmas or have a Great
Christmas?
The most profitable time of
the year for a corporation is
when? Yes Christmas! Every
corporation needs to open their
ears and eyes to the tiring cus-
tomers year after year of won-
dering if saying "Merry
Christmas" or "Have a good
Christmas" is going to be an
issue!
The majority of the American
shoppers are getting tired of this
issue that should never be an
issue! A grassroots movement
has been building for the past
several years now and I believe
the corporate world knows it, in
this "Idiocy Of Christmas" that
some in the corporate world
have been practicing! You think
about all your products from
food, toys, TVs, electrical, DVDs,
CDs, etc. The overwhelming ma-
jority of those who purchase
from you are the "Merry Christ-
mas" people and their giving
(purchasing your products) is
what keeps you in business!
Some may be foolish to say this
is not a big issue? It is bigger
than you think and this issue is
growing every year for the past
many years concerning the "Id-


iocy Of Christmas!" This major-
ity has its ears and eyes open
wide this year and after Christ-
mas 2009 we will find out all
those who are playing the game
the "Idiocy Of Christmas" with
its supporting customers.
And these supporting cus-
tomers will make a decision
next Christmas concerning in-
formation on who played "The
Idiocy Of Christmas" and then
every consumer will decide
next Christmas what corpora-
tion and businesses by their own
choice and conviction to sup-
port next Christmas!
"God bless you and for the
sake of the 'profit' of all, keep
Christ in Christmas!"

Thank you
The family of Doris M. Wood-
ward extends our sincere ap-
preciation to everyone for your
expressions of sympathy during
this time of our loss. We are
most appreciative of the visits
and telephone calls by family
and friends to Aunt Doris during
the last few months.
A special thank you is offered
to the caregivers at Magnolia
Woods Assisted Living Facility
and the staff of Cornerstone
Hospice for the kindness and
care provided to Aunt Doris
during the last year of her amaz-
ing life.
Aunt Doris was six days short
of her 96th birthday when she
died on Thanksgiving Day with
loved ones, in person and in
spirit, by her side. Her plans for
her funeral called for a celebra-
tion of her life, with no sorrow
or sadness. Thank you to every-
one who had a part in making
these plans come to fruition on
the 5th of December at Indian
Hill Baptist Church.
Sincerely,
The Family ofDoris

South Sumter girls nip Hernando


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

South Sumter High's
girls basketball team took
a commanding 10-0 lead in
the first quarter and it
looked like the Raiders
were headed for a running
clock and a blowout Fri-
day night at the South
Sumter High gym.
Hernando High, how-
ever, had other ideas.
The visiting Leopards
(6-5) forced the Raiders
into a messy 33 turnovers
and outscored the host-
esses 23-14 in the final
quarter as South Sumter
(6-6) just barely eked out a
58-55 victory.
The Raiders needed a
ground traffic controller


and that night, it was
Tasha Kennerson. The
junior guard, scored 18
points, grabbed 12 re-
bounds and made three
steals despite getting
knocked to the floor sev-
eral times. Desiree
Mitchell added 14 points
and Alayna Sumner and
Jalesa Ford both scored
eight points. Mitchell also
had five rebounds and
three steals.
Pacing was a problem.
"We just didn't slow the
pace down like we were
supposed to," said Ken-
nerson. "We (veteran play-
ers) have to get them (the
inexperienced players) to
stop having butterfingers
out there. There was a lot
of pressure. A lot of us had
to step up and show the

Raiders were headed for a running clock
and a blowout Friday night at the South
Sumter High gym.


younger people what to
do."
Kennerson averages 20
points per game and could
possibly score her 1,000th
point this season.
The game started out
differently. South Sumter
took an 18-6 first quarter
lead with Mitchell scoring
eight points.
Hernando was improv-
ing but the Raiders out-
pointed them 16-10 in the


second period to take a 34-
16 halftime lead. Kenner-
son, Brittany Taylor and
Sumner each scored four
points in the quarter. Her-
nando's Liz Lawrence
scored six for the visitors.
Hernando turned the ta-
bles on the Raiders
outscoring them 16-10 in
the third period. Jasmire
Brown scored eight for the
Leopards while Mitchell
and Kennerson both hit


four points.
Hernando wanted to
shock their opponents and
outscored South Sumter
23-14 in the fourth period.
Brittany Flowers led the
Leopards with eight
points. Kennerson and
Nina Flores both hit six
points as South Sumter
just held on.
Brown led Hernando
with 18 points and
Lawrence scored 17.
Flowers added 10 points.
The South Sumter head
coach had to work hard to
keep her girls from blow-
ing the game.
"I thought we started out
very strong," said South
Sumter coach Kimberley
oBorum. "Towards the end
of the third, I thought we
were a little bit relaxed.


Even though you have a
lead, you have to keep
playing the way you
started out. They listened
a little bit at the end so
that was great for us. I
can't be any happier about
us teamwork offensively.
Some of the things defen-
sively broke down hustling
on their fast break. Things
like that we have to.fweak
and make sure we are set
on that day in and day out.
"We have a young team.
We are mostly sophomores
and juniors. I have three
sophomores right now. Two
are playing for the first
time. I can't take anything
away from Hernando.
They came back with the
pressure defense. We have
to learn to handle it when
that comes upon us."

2009 with the goal to raise

lish a stronger culture of

opportunities for the stu-
dents of LSCC," said
Rosanne Brandeburg, Ex-
ecutive Director.
During the past 30 years,
more than 10,000 students

graduated and have had a
significant impact on their
fields of expertise, their

nities. Our donors are in-
creasingly more aware
that a. college education
from LSCC has positive
ripple effects for genera-
tions to come in our com-
munity. Because of our

Grace notes



In remembrance of Him


Nancy
Kennedy

Special to the
i Times


'm trying to remember
Jesus. Not that I've ever
really forgotten him. But
there once was a time when
he was my first and highest
thought.
There once was a time
when my relationship with
him took priority and prece-
dence over everything else.
Somewhere, sometime,
somehow in the past 30 years
I pushed him aside, although
that sounds harsh, a violent,
one-time shove.
I think it was more of a
gradual crowding out by all
the other stuff in my life, like
a well-worn pair of pants that
gets relegated to the back of
the closet. Not tossed out,
just pushed aside.
I'm trying to remember
Jesus - his compassion for
the immoral woman with
whom he talked so kindly yet
so pointedly one hot after-
noon at a well in ancient
Samaria.
I'm trying to remember
Jesus, like the time he com-


manded the raging wind to
be quiet and it was, and how
he calmed both the violent
storm and his terrified disci-
ples and all the times he's
calmed me.
I'm trying to remember
Jesus and how he raised the
dead only son of a poor
widow woman and the time
he brought a little girl back to
life and cast demons out of a
man and made a blind man
see.
The One who said, "Come
to me, all you who are weary
and burdened, and I will give
you rest" and who said,
"Take heart; your sins are
forgiven" - I'm trying to re-
member him and all that he
said when he was here on
earth.
I'm trying to remember
how he opened my eyes to my
need, how he caused me to
see my. great sin and his
greater mercy and helped me
desire and then accept his
gift of grace.
I'm trying to remember the
moment he bid, "Seek my
face," and my heart an-
swered, "Your face, Lord, I
will seek."
I'm trying to remember
being in love with him and
wanting everyone I knew to
be in love with him, too, to
the point of obnoxiousness.
Love turns people into fools,


and I'm trying to remember
being a fool for Christ, speak-
ing his name with every
breath, wanting to be with
him every day, every hour,
every minute.
It's there, the memory. It's
tugging at my consciousness.
As I sit in my chair reading,
as I roam the mall, as I work
and cook and pump gas in my
car, as I fold laundry and ex-
ercise at the gym, as I climb
into bed at night, the mem-
ory...
He was there all along.
Even when I didn't know
him, he knew me.
He knew the overweight
girl, the lonely teen, the
frightened young woman. He
was there, in the background.
I'm trying to remember,
afraid to forget - I don't
want to forget.
I don't know when it hap-
pened, when Jesus became
less than first and only. I only
know that he has.
I've seen the bumper stick-
ers and the lapel pins lately,
reminding me that Jesus is
the reason for the season.
I haven't forgotten that. I
just haven't remembered. Or,
I've remembered, but not
well. Not to the point of for-
getting all else, of putting the
reason before the season and

"How do I decide which funeral
home to call when the time comes?"


Aside from the requirement that all funeral homes be
licensed by the state, some basic questions you might ask
when selecting a funeral home' include: Are they flexible
enough to handle your specific needs? Are decisions made
locally or from an out-of-town corporate office? Are they
full service? Do they sub-contract services such as
cremation or do they provide these options on-site?
Everyone has different priorities and questions about
funeral pre-planning. We invite your questions and we
will respect your priorities. Please call us for a no cost, no
obligation, no pressure appointment to get the facts on
how you can benefit from funeral pre-planning.

tice of Its intent to issue a permit (No. FLA013558) to the

cated at 9544 County Road 476B, Bushnell, Florida
33513-0667, In Sumter County. The Substantial Revision
Includes: Remove six existing tertiary filters from the site
and construct two cloth media disc fiters. The new fil-
ters will be built just north of the area occupied by the
existing fitters. Remove existing gaseous chlorine disin-
fection system and install a new sodium hypochlorite
(liquid) feed system and bulk storage tanks. The loca-
tion of the new hypochlorite storage and feed system
will be located In the building just south of the waste-
water treatment facility ground storage tank. Addition
of an alum coagulant injection/storage system, to In-
clude a 55-gallon drum storage tank, metering pumps,
and piping and Injection saddle. Relocation of the ef-
fluent flow meter (EFA-01) to be located after disinfec-
tion along the existing eight-Inch effluent reuse main
prior to the sprayflelds. Installation of two
remotely-actuated valves In below-grade vaults that
control flow to the public access/restricted access
sprayfields based on effluent water quality. The valves
will be controlled by a proposed telemetry system from
the main wastewater treatment facility. Improvements

cludes piping modifications and replacement of the
existing pump with two new pumps. Abandonment of
the wet well, located between the filter holding ponds,
and to be replaced with an above-grade suction

ponds.
The Department will Issue the permit with the attached
conditions unless a timely petition for an administrative
hearing Is filed under Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of
the Florida Statutes before the deadline for filing a peti-
tion. 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) un-
der Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes.
The petition must contain the Information set forth be-
low and must be tiled (received by the clerk) In the Of-
fice of General Counsel of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35. Tallahas-
see, Florida 32399-3000.
Petitions by the applicant or any of the parties listed
below must be filed within fourteen days of receipt of
this written notice. Petitions filed by any persons other
than those entitled to written notice under Section
120.60(3) of the Florida Statutes must be filed within
fourteen days of publication of the notice or within
fourteen days of receipt of the written notice, which-
ever occurs first.
Under Section 120.60(3) of the Florida Statutes, how-
ever, any person who has asked the Department for
notice of agency action may file a petition within four-
teen days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the
date of publication.
. The petitioner shall mall a copy of the petition to the
. applicant at the address Indicated above at the time
- of tiling. The failure of any person to file a petition
within the appropriate time period shall constitute a
waiver of that person's right to request an administra-
tive determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569
and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. Any subsequent In-
tervention (in a proceeding Initiated by another party)
will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer
upon the filing of a motion In compliance with Rule
28-106.205 of the Florida Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the
Department's action Is based must contain the follow-
Ing information:
(a) The name, address, and telephone number of
each petitioner; the Department permit Identification
number and the county In which the subject matter
or activity is located;
(b) A statement of how and when each petitioner re-
ceived notice of the Department action:
(c) A statement of how each petitioner's substantial
Interests are affected by the Department action;
(d) A statement of the material facts disputed by the
petitioner. If any;
(e) A statement of facts that the petitioner contends
warrant reversal or modification of the Department ac-
tion;
(f) A statement of which rules or statutes the peti-
tioner contends require reversal or modification of the
Department action; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner,
stating precisely the action that the petitioner wants
the Department to take.
A petition that does not dispute the material facts on
which the Department's action Is based shall state that
no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain
the same Information as set forth above, as required by
Rule 28-106.301, Florida Administrative Code.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed
to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition
means that the Department's final action may be dif-
ferent from the position taken by it In this notice. Per-
sons whose substantial Interests will be affected by any
such final decision of the Department have the right to
petition to become a party to the proceeding, In ac-
cordance with the requirements set forth above.
Mediation under Section 120.573 of the Florida Statutes
is not available for this proceeding.
The application is 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 FDEP
