South Bay utility improves


Work aims
to keep federal
agencies at bay

By Naji Tobias

SOUTH BAY On Tuesday,
June 19, during South Bay's
commission meeting, the Gov-
ernment Services Group (GSG)
outlined a host of improvements
made by the utility department
over the past two months.


The company has been hired
by the city to overall improve the
important city department in the
wake of repeated warnings from
the Department of Environmen-
tal Protection. The company had
a report to give to commission-
ers during their regular meeting.
According to John Dunty, the
utility manager for GSG, improve-
ments in the utilities department
Include the continuation of utility
assessment and further training
to help staff.
Also, the utility department


plans to begin work on the man-
hole issues that currently exist
in the city. As explained by Mr.
Dunty, the number of manholes
to be fixed has yet to be deter-
mined.
On June 5, the company be-
gan a study of the condition of
the manholes throughout the
city in preparation for the-work
ahead.
According to Charles L. Sweat,
the utility consultant for GSG, the
project is expected to be finished
in approximately six months.

Making ice cream
On Friday, June 22 at the Project Harmony in the Streets summer camp, held at the
Okeechobee Center in Belle Glade, 11-year-old Vanessa Cano learns to make and
eat! -- ice cream.


Because the company is un-
certain just how large the project
will be, it is also unknown how
much it will cost to address the
problem. The company, though,
has committed to helping the
city identify such funding.
"We're on an uphill climb
right now," said Mr. Sweat.
"We're not at the top of the
mountain yet, but we are climb-
ing."
Mr. Sweat said he is pleased
with his company's work, es-
pecially as it relates to creating


more stability within the city's
utilities department, work that
included developing a format for
proper work procedures.
"The positive impact of South
Bay is that we haven't had warn-
ing letters recently, the staff is
confident that all pf the pump-
ing stations and backup pumps
are working and the operating
procedures are being developed;
with some actually already irj

Blazing along the


Thompson chain


'Blaze' Thompson
selected as new
Pahokee coach

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE As far as former
Pahokee Blue Devils head coach
Don Thompson is concerned,
passing on the family's coaching
legacy to his son was a dream
that he had for many years.
Mr. Thompson's first got the
idea in 1969, with the birth of his
son, Blaze.
Now, after 38 years, the vision
is finally realized as the Pahokee
Blue Devils have named Don
'Blaze' Thompson as the team's
new head coach.
To find out how Blaze got him
name, one only has to look back
to his father. The senior Thomp-
son smiled, saying that he always
thought Blaze would be "the


coolest name."
"I figured that from birth,
Blaze would be a great football
player and coach someday and
I thought he would enjoy the
name," said Mr. Thompson.
Mr. Thompson said that, from
an early age, was already blazing
trails.
Blaze would work out on the
Herbert Hoover Dike to prepare
for upcoming football seasons
with the Blue Devils. He was al-
ways a popular kid, his father
said, and.the neighborhood chil-
dren followed him like a 'pied
piper,' his father said.
Mr. Thompson and his wife,
Alice, knew they had a true leader
on their hands.
"What Alice and I noticed
and observed was the fact that
Blaze's peers loved being around
him as led by example," said Mr.
Thompson. "Not by words, but
See Blaze Page 12


INI/Naji Tobias
Both Don and Alice Thompson said that they are thrilled that their son, Blaze, wants to
stay in Pahokee. Blaze Thompson, sitting between his mother and father, was named the
new football head coach of the Pahokee Blue Devils about two weeks ago. Ms. Thomp-
son said that she thinks the move is good for their family, the youth and the city of Paho-
kee. "I hope everyone gets behind Blaze and the team," said Ms. Thompson

Effects of drought widespread


By: Lorna Jablonski
INI Florida
The U.S. Drought Monitor
has South Florida rated from
"moderate drought" to "extreme
drought". Last year was the third
driest on record for the entire
state. As the drought continued
into 2007, Lake Okeechobee hit
a record low of 8.89 feet on May
,31.
The effects of the continu-
ing drought in Florida are wide-
spread. Water restrictions are in
place across the region. Pastures
are not growing. Large animal
'owners have been forced to sup-
plement their animals' feed with
'greater amounts of hay to make
up for the dormant pastures. Un-
fortunately, droughts in the Mid-
west have already affected the
production of hay nationwide
and it is almost impossible to buy
common coastal hay locally, forc-
ing owners to scramble to find
alternative food sources for their
stock.
Even if farmers begin to bale
hay, the majority of it is already
spoken for. So, local feed stores
do not see any relief in sight.
The drought is also affecting
,fish and wildlife. According to
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
officials, there are both positive
and negative effects for the state's
,wildlife during this crisis.
"Short-term droughts probably
are more beneficial to freshwater
fish and their habitat than they
are harmful," said Fred Cross, re-
gional freshwater fisheries biolo-
gist in the FWC's regional office
in Panama City. "The drought ex-
poses lake bottoms and dries up
the muck that has accumulated.
Desirable vegetation expands
into deepwater portions of lakes
and rivers, and seeds germinate
on exposed lake bottoms. The
downside to this is that invasive
and exotic plants like hydrilla
will also make their way into
the deeper water. Droughts also
provide the opportunity to use
prescribed burning to reduce
vegetation in the wetlands, cre-
ating open water habitat which
helps water quality and reduces
the potential for wildfires," stated
Mr. Cross.
"Droughts can increase the
effectiveness of planned habi-
tat enhancement projects," said
Dale Jones, section leader for
the FWC's Division of Freshwater
Fisheries Management.
On the downside, droughts
can reduce the aquifer level, al-
lowing sink holes to form and

Okeechobee News/Lorna Jablonski
Alligators are on the move in search of water as the drought continues. According to FWC per-
sonnel, they have not become more aggressive. They are simply looking for food and water.


Many different types of wildlife have been affected by the
drought. Animals that usually stay clear of humans are com-
ing closer to civilization looking for food and water. This little
rabbit was rescued by a good-hearted human after being
separated from its mother.


drain lakes. Salinity intrusion may
stress fish: Low water levels can
trap fish, resulting in fish kills
from low dissolved oxygen.
As the water levels drop, boat-
ers should exercise extreme cau-
tion to prevent striking underwa-
ter objects or even the bottom.
Many bdat ramps are not usable
due to falling water levels. The
ramps are actually out of the wa-
ter and steep drop-offs and the
end of the ramps can damage
boats and trailers.
Wildlife are suffering from the
lack of water.


"Droughts can be stressful on
most aquatic wildlife, including
alligators," stated Allan Wood-
ward, research administrator at
the FWC's Gainesville Wildlife
Research Lab.
Even though the water re-
cedes, alligators do fairly well be-
cause of the fish, turtles and birds
that become trapped in dry areas.
But, there is also the threat of in-
creased cannibalism.
"Under prolonged droughts,
such as the one we are now ex-
periencing, alligators may be
forced to move in search of water.


Traveling over dry land can cause
increased mortality from motor
vehicles, as well as dehydration.
Smaller alligators may fall prey to
predators during these searches
for water," said Woodward.
Increased movement results
in an increase in nuisance alliga-
tor complaints.
"We have found that there
is no increase in the number
of attacks on humans during
droughts," stated Woodward.
"When moving over dry land, al-
ligators are awkward and out of
their element. They merely want
to find water, which provides
them with security and food."
Hunters are already being
warned of smaller and fewer
yearling deer this fall due to the
droughts.
"This drought has made life
more difficult on these fawns and
their mothers that need extra wa-
ter in their diets while nursing,"
said Scott Johns, district biolo-
gist from the FWC's Olustee Field
Office. "The tips and shoots of
growing plants are a large part of
deer diets during the spring and-
summer. This is a favorite deer
food, and without the protein
from these plants, fawn growth
will be delayed and even -antler
development in bucks could be
stunted this year."

New lake regulation schedule set


By Pete Gawda
.INI Florida
There is some relief in sight for
those who have been complain-
ing of large releases of lake water
to the estuaries.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers (COE) recently announced
that a new regulation schedule
for Lake Okeechobee will soon
go into effect that addresses this
'problem.
Because the present sched-
ule, known as WSE (Water Sup-
ply and Environment), is not
Suited to handle persistent high
'lake levels like we have had in
recent years and also because of
'seepage problems in the Herbert
,Hoover Dike, a study was initiated
last year to revise the regulation
schedule.
According to Pete Milam, COE
project manager, under the new
schedule the lake will be man-
aged a foot lower. The extreme


ranges under the WSE are 9.4 feet
to 18.5 feet. Under the proposed
schedule the extremes will be-
tween 8.7 feet and 17.3 feet.
Mr. Milam said one of the goals
of the new schedule was a health-
ier lake. Lower lake levels are bet-
ter for the environment. He said
there was also concern in recent
years about the safety of the Her-
bert Hoover Dike. Therefore, the
decision was made to maintain
the lake at a lower level.
The new system will allow wa-
ter mangers to discharge smaller
amounts of water more often
to the estuaries. Discharges will
be made earlier than under the
present system and in smaller
amounts. This will help the salin-
ity level. Mr. Milan said the Caloo-
sahatchee River needs small re-
leases of fresh water in dry times
to maintain salinity levels.
One of the complaints against
WSE has been that too much ex-
cess water is sent east and west to


the estuaries.
Under WSE the lake' would
reach a higher level before water
was released and more water was
released to the estuaries.
However, in extremely wet
years it might still be necessary to
dump excess water into the estu-
aries.
The problem was to balance
the need for lower lake levels
while maintaining water sup-
plies.
"The WSE did not give us
the flexibility to make the right
management decision when wa-
ter levels were too high," said
Colonel Paul Grosskruger, com-
mander of the Jacksonville Dis-
trict of COE in a press release. "To
achieve lower lake water levels,
we had to regularly deviate from
the approved WSE schedule. The
decision paths provided in a new,
approved regulation schedule
should enable us to make deci-
sions' to better manage water


levels in and discharges from the
lake. That is why we developed
the new schedule."
The proposed schedule is de-
signed to be an interim schedule.
Mr. Milam said the schedule will
be in place only until 2010. By
that time, plans call for more wa-
ter storage areas to the south. The
additional storage will allow the
schedule to be revised to allow
for some excess water to be sent
south of the lake, relieving the
pressure on the estuaries.
There will be four regional
public meetings before the plan is
put into place. One of those meet-
ings will be held in Okeechobee.
Allowing for the required
amount of time for public review,
the revised schedule should be in
place by November.

Letters to the Editor


Gang Violence
It's a shame that every where
you turn you have to check over
your shoulder to ensure you're
safe, or better yet be cautious of
what shade of blue or what type
of black you wear when entering
a neighborhood. It started out
as a small weed and has now
become a termite hill that pesti-
cides aren't strong enough to dis-
mantle. It's a virus that's eating
the flesh off of our community
and the time has come to began
eradicating this problem.
Here is an equation that I used
my elementary school math
skills to develop: gangs plus vio-
lence equals gang violence. Then
I used my analysis skills and criti-
cal thinking skills to reverse that


problem and eventually develop
strategies to put a stop to the
two problems that continuously
combine to form an even greater
problem.
Gang violence has taken over
our community and our youth.
The ones with so much potential,
but little motivation and initiative
to better themselves are destroy-
ing not only their lives, but the
lives of others. Many people have
given loads of suggestions, many
of which have been barren. But,
in my opinion, we need to start
with the parents. Most parents of
gang members could care less
what their child is doing and have
little discipline policies in place
in their home. But if we could
just persuade those parents and


make them feel responsible for
letting their child run amok in a
gang and in their home, hopefully
we'll see change in their parent-
ing skills and their child. Almost
every gang member I know has a
parent who needs to act their age
and not their shoe size, may be
too busy to raise their children,
or just act phony in front of pub-
lic officials as if they're trying to
raise their child in the right way.
Everyone has a suggestion
about how to stop gang violence,
but apparently they are too busy
to get up and put forth any action
to stop the problem. I can give
credit to Linda Johnson of the
NAACP for being proactive. Ms.
Johnson took the effort of going
to the streets and pulling aside


some of those gang members to
mentor them and educate them
on the mistake they're making by
"gang banging." What Ms. John-
son has taken upon herself is a
heavy burden, but she's used to
it since she mentors at least 50
students every year.
Gang violence is a problem
that's spreading like cancer, but
if we don't have anyone to act
as chemo-therapy and treat this
problem, then it will continue.
It's time to stand up against the
gang members, the households
that allow it, and anyone else
who supports this type of foolish-
ness taking place in our commu-
nity. It's time for a change, so let's
get moving.

Tax collector signs ATM agreement


PALM BEACH COUNTY --
Customers will have convenient
access to cash this fall while do-
ing business in five branch loca-
tions of the Palm Beach County
Tax Collector. The branches
located in West Palm Beach,
Delray, North Palm Beach, Royal
Palm Beach and Lake Worth will
have ATMs installed by the Palm


Beach County Credit Union.
"This is a win-win situation
for both .our customers and
the agency," said Anne M. Gan-
non, Tax Collector, Palm Beach
County. "Too often our custom-
ers. have to make a second trip
to our branch offices because
they are short on cash. Now
they can use a convenient ATM


without leaving the building and
are able to complete their trans-
action the first time."
To use an ATM, customers
will pay a minimal fee of $1 per
transaction. Part of that fee will
go directly to the Palm Beach
County Tax Collector to offset
the, costs of the machines.
The budget of the Palm


Beach County Tax Collector is
not drawn from taxpayer dollars
through the county but from the
fees charged to do business with
the office.

tor's office, please visit our web-

Help us spread the word: 'Use only what you need'


WEST PALM BEACH --
Reaching 7 million South Flo-
ridians with critically important
information about conserva-
tion during the water shortage
is a challenge that several cor-
porate partners are helping the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District meet.
Wal-Mart, Publix and
NPbertson stores have stepped
forward to support the District's
water conservation efforts at no
cost to taxpayers, with in-store
announcements and circulars


reminding each shopper to
"use only what you need."
"The district applauds these
organizations. Their efforts to
help educate the public shows
their dedication to preserving
South Florida's natural resourc-
es," said Terrie Bates, Assistant
Deputy Executive Director of
the South Florida Water Man-
agement District.
Public service announce-
ments about water restrictions
are being broadcast for a sec-
ond month in 61 Wal-Mart


stores throughout South Flor-
ida. The announcements run
hourly in English and Spanish,
and began running in May.
"Our ability to air these criti-
cal messages is a demonstration
of our everyday commitment to
strive for excellence, serve our
customers, and make a differ-
ence in our communities," said
Michelle Azel, Senior Manager
of Public Affairs at Wal-Mart.
Publix ran ad in their June
21 circular, which has a circula-
tion of nearly four million.


"As a good neighbor and
community partner, it is a re-
sponsible act to share vital in-
formation with our customers,
especially about water conser-
vation during this time of water
shortage," said Maria Brous,
director of media and com-
munity relations with Publix
Super Markets. "We not only
work here, we live here too. It
is up to each of us to make our
communities a stronger, better
place. Use waler responsibly."
Albertson's began running


public service announcements
in their South Florida stores on
June 11, 2007. They will con-
tinue -to run for six weeks to
help remind people that even
though rainy season has be-
gun, we are still experiencing a
severe water shortage.
"We feel as a member of the
community and a good corpo-
rate citizen it's our responsibil-
ity to help get this message out
there", said Shane McEntarffer,
Communications Manager for
Albertsons LLC Florida Divi-


sion. "We're proud to partner
with the South Florida Water
Management District to help
educate our neighbors on this
important matter".
Although water levels may
be rising in canals, ponds and
lakes, water restrictions are still
in effect. District meteorologists
are estimating that 36 inches of
rain is still needed district-wide
for South Florida to recover
from the severe water short-
age.


Notices sent taxpayers with new qualifications for Homestead


Nearly 6,300 letters to Palm
Beach County taxpayers re-
garding their qualifications will
be received in the near future.
These notices are in addition
to more than 1,400 homestead
denial letters being tailed next


week to property owners who
applied this year for a home-
stead exemption, but were
found not to be qualified.
"Each year my staff care-
fully verifies the qualifications
of property owners at the-time


the application is filed," said
Mr. Nikolits. Automatic renew-
al cards returned by the U.S.
Postal Service are also inves-
tigated to determine whether
the owner is still entitled to the
exemption. "It is much more


cost-efficient to take the time
up-front to ensure that only
qualified owners receive an
exemption and those who may
no longer qualify have their
exemptions removed,"Mr.
Nikolits said.


Property owners who falsely owner will have until July 30


claim a homestead exemption
are subject to back taxes and
penalties as well as possible
prosecution for fraud.
The letters will be mailed
June 29, and the property


appeal the denial.
"Anyone who receives a
denial letter should call (561)
355-2866 and discuss the mat-
ter with our Exemption Servic-
es staff," said Mr. Nikolits.

PALM BEACH Beginning
July 16, construction on the Ev-
erglades Agricultural Area (EAA)
Reservoir is expected to cause
travel delays along a seven mile
stretch of U.S. 27 in Palm Beach
County, about 15 miles south of
South Bay. Drivers are encouraged
to use alternate routes including
1-595, 1-95, the Florida Turnpike,
S.R. 80 and 1-75 while the con-
struction continues over the next
six months (click here for map of
alternative routes)
Engineers and explosives tech-
nicians will begin blasting through
seven feet of rock and soil layers
within 150 feet of the highway's
western edge to create a seep-
age canal that will surround the
planned reservoir. For safety rea-
sons, all four lanes of U.S. 27 will
be closed during blasting. Experts
in electronic detonation plan to


set off charges Mondays through
Friday with road closures ex-
pected each day from 11 a.m. to
2 p.m. Construction will continue
for at least six months.
Alternate routes will be iden-
tified on Florida Department of
Transportation signs posted in
South Bay on U.S. 27, Belle Glade
on S.R. 872 (heading South) and
at the intersection of Interstate 75
and U.S. 27, north of Alligator Al-
ley.
The EAA Reservoir is an Ev-
erglades restoration project of
the South Florida Water Manage-
ment District. With a capacity of
190,000 acre-feet or 62 billion
gallons, the aboveground res-
ervoir will store water released
from Lake Okeechobee, reduce
harmful freshwater discharges
to coastal estuaries and capture
stormwater runoff from the Ever-


glades Agricultural Area.
When finished, the canal will
capture groundwater that natural-
ly seeps from the reservoir, lessen-
ing any impacts the water could
have on the surrounding area.
For up-to-date traveler infor-
mation, drivers can call the Flor-
ida Department of Transporta-
tion at 511, or visit the website at
http://www.pbfdot.com. For fact
sheet on the EAA Reservoir blast-
ing project click here.
Alternate traffic routes:
Northbound drivers in Bro-
ward County can take 1-595 East
to S.R. 7/S.R. 441 or take 1-595
West to Interstate 75. Other routes
are the Florida Turnpike or Inter-
state 95.
Southbound drivers in Palm
Beach County can use S.R. 80
East to S.R. 7/S.R. 441, the Florida
Turnpike of 1-95.

Year-round water


conservation rule adopted


WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.
- The South Florida Water Man-
agement District (SFWMD) has
initiated an accelerated rule de-
velopment process for expanding
year-round water conservation
measures across the entire 16
county district. The mandatory
measures, currently in place in
Lee and Collier counties, aim to
conserve more water by reduc-
ing landscape irrigation to three
days per week and only during
(he morning and evening hours
when less water is lost to evapo-
ration.
"The Governing Board wants
to promote wise and efficient use
of water," said SFWMD Govern-
ing Board Chairman Eric Buer-
mann. "By expediting the rule-'
making process, we can ensure
there is a long-term strategy in
place to strengthen protection
for our water resources after we
emerge from the current water
shortage."
The proposed expansion of
the year-round rule will provide a
framework for consistent imple-
mentation of water conservation
measures across the District and
help ensure the long-term sus-
tainability of the region's water
resources. Although municipali-
ties will be encouraged to uni-
formly adopt ordinances that
include these measures, as well
as variance and enforcement pro-
visions, they will have the option
to pass more stringent, individual
local ordinances.
Five rule development work-
shops are scheduled to directly
engage water users across the
District and obtain public com-
ment during the rulemaking pro-
cess:
June 18, from 10 a.m. to noon at
the South Florida Water Manage-
ment District Miami Field Station
9001 NW 58th Street, Miami;
June 18, from 1:30 to 3:30
p.m. at the Fern Forest Nature
Center, 201 Lyons Road Coco-
nut Creek;
June 20, from 9 to 11 a.m.
in the Stuart City Hall Commis-
sion Chambers, 121 SW Flagler
Avenue, Stuart;
June 20, from 3:30 to 5:30
p.m. at the South Florida Wa-
ter Management District Build-
ing 1, Storch Conference Room,


3301 Gun Club Road, West Palm
Beach; and,
June 21, from 1 to 3 p.m. at
the Osceola Heritage Park Meet-
ing Room 162, 1921 Kissimmee
Valley Lane, Kissimmee.
The SFWMD Governing Board
authorized staff to initiate rule-
making for District wide adoption
of the agency's year-round water
conservation rule, section 40E-
24 of the Florida Administrative
Code, at its March meeting. Fol-
lowing the five scheduled public
workshops, a preliminary draft of
the rule will be reviewed by the
District's Water Resources Advi-
sory Council (WRAC) at its July
5 meeting. If approved by the
WRAC, the rule will be submitted
to the SFWMD Governing Board
for formal rule adoption on July
12. Final district-wide implemen-
tation is anticipated this fall after a
subsequent review by the State.
"This water shortage has
taught us all critical lessons
about the limitations of our wa-
ter resources," added Carol Ann
Wehle, executive director of the
SFWMD. "We have also learned
more about the benefits of indi-
vidual water conservation, and
that with moderate rainfall our
lawns can survive and thrive on
as little as once-a-week water-
ing. These measures represent
a responsible water use ethic,
while providing for the protection
of our citizens' economic invest-
ment in their landscapes."
Under measures currently in
place in Lee and Collier counties,
landscape irrigation is permit-
ted before 10:00 a.m. and after
4:00 p.m. on Mondays, Wednes-
days and Saturdays for homes
and businesses with odd street
addresses, as well as on Tues-
days, Thursdays and Sundays for
homes and businesses with even
street addresses. No landscape ir-
rigation is permitted on Fridays.
The SFWMD's experience
following implementation of
the year-round water conserva-
tion measures in Lee and Collier
counties in 2003 suggests that dis-
trict-wide expansion of the land-
scape irrigation rules may help to
reduce overall water demand by
a minimum of five percent and as
much as 15 percent.

Awareness


campaign


continues

PALM BEACH COUNTY -- In
support of a nationwide cam-
paign by the American Prostate
Cancer Initiative to raise public
awareness of prostate cancer,
Wellington Regional Medical
Center hosted a workplace event,
SNEAKERS AT WORK DAY, on Fri-
day, June 15.
The goal of SNEAKERS AT
WORK DAY, is to encourage early
detection of prostate cancer, a dis-
ease that has become the number
two cancer killer among men. In
this country alone, over 230,000
new men were diagnosed with
prostate cancer last year. It is
hoped that through education
and advocacy, the course of the
disease will be changed, thereby
reducing suffering and fatalities.
Wellington Regional Medical
Center employees were encour-
aged to take part in the event by
wearing sneakers to work on
June 15. In exchange for making
a small donation to the American
Prostate Cancer Initiative, each
participant received a pair of blue
shoelaces.
The shoelaces were sold in
the lobby of the hospital for a
two week period prior to that day
thanks to, the work of Prostate
Cancer Support Group facilitator,
Jesse Seligman, who coordinated
the event. Special thanks to sup-
port group volunteers Alexis Ad-
ams, Lois Cautilli, Harvey Finkel-
stein, Wally Gress, Joel Grossman,
Joe Lutin and Darlene Tintori.
The Prostate Cancer Support
Group at Wellington meets on
the first Friday of every month at 7
p.m. in the cafr. Mr. Seligman in-
vites physician lecturers to speak
to the group about the latest treat-
ment options for prostate cancer.
Family members are always wel-
come.
One hundred percent of every
dollar raised through the SNEAK-
ERS AT WORK DAY, will benefit
the American Prostate Cancer Ini-
tiative and US TOO International,
both 501 (c) (3) non-profit orga-
nizations which support prostate
cancer awareness, patient educa-
tion and research programs that
might otherwise go unfunded.
US TOO, Inc. also grants funds to
help establish new prostate can-
cer organizations.
"Without public awareness,
prostate cancer will remain life
threatening when it doesn't have
to be," said Jesse Seligman. For
more information about the
Prostate Cancer Support Group
at Wellington, please call (561)

Grandpa's land was on Fisheating Creek


;By Ralph Wadlow as told
to Carroll Wadlow
Edited by
MaryAnn Morris
INI
Early Florida was an adventure
for all who came here, so when
information comes to light from
those who have now passed on,
we like to share with our read-
ers. The Wadlow family troubled
by the depression in Indiana and
the mother's health, came to
Florida, thinking it couldn't' be
any worse.
"Mother, Dad and I crossed the
*Edison Bridge at about 2 p.m. on
December 16, 1932. From Tampa
*to Ft. Myers we had travelled the
Tamiami Trail in the pouring rain.
'Look,' Mother pointed. 'It says
Thomas Edison Bridge, but hasn't
a single light.'
"Not even the rain could dim
the beauty of the street into
which we turned. Stately royal
palms lined both sides in either
direction. White picket fences en-
closed well kept lawns. Here was
a red brick mansion trimmed in
marble, there a quaint white
church, even a large white hotel
weather boarded and generously
-trimmed with gingerbread all over
its broad verandas. A little farther
on we saw a sign, 'M. Flossie Hill
Co., the Ladies' Trading Place.'
'Stop here,' my mother called
.from the backseat and she
climbed out of the car. 'We need
an umbrella.' But she was back
almost instantly.
'They have no umbrellas: they
say it never rains 'in the winter!'
The Boston Store was almost
across the street and they provid-
ed us with an umbrella.
'We had parked in front of busi-
nesses the likes of which we had
never seen. The entire fronts were
open to the sidewalk, with folding
doors pushed all the way back on
each side. There was a fruit stand,
Schlossberg"s ten-cent store, Pix-
ton Schultz Drugstore and appar-
ently, a land office. Their propri-
etors had become interested in us
by now. Our Essex Four sported
an Indiana license plate. Our
folding cots, quilts and tent were
stored in the back behind the
spare tire. A wooden box on the
running board held out cooking
utensils and food supplies, open-
ing out into a sort of table or work
counter.
"James H. Ragsdale came to-
ward us with hands extended,

The Wadlow's palmetto-thatched house in Palmdale, 1934,
creaked and groaned through hurricanes, but it never leaked.

"Not even the rain could dim the beauty of the street
into which we turned. Stately royal palms lined
both sides in either direction. White picket fences
enclosed well kept lawns. Here was a red brick
mansion trimmed in marble, there a quaint white
church, even a large white hotel weather boarded
and generously trimmed with gingerbread all over
its broad verandas. A little farther on we saw a sign,
'M. Flossie Hill Co., the Ladies' Trading Place.'


presenting himself as a real estate
broker and promising to show us
excellent land to buy. We told him
we already had 20 acres on Fish-
eating Creek in Glades County,
east of Palmdale and hoped he
could direct us toward it.
'My grandfather, William Fer-
dinand Weiss, of Springfield,
Missouri, had offered us the use
of his land near Palmdale when
my mother's arthritis had flared
and her doctor advised that she
coome to a warm climate. Both
my father, Clyde V. Wadlow and
I had been laid off in the depres-
sion crunch, so we all three de-
cided to come down and starve
together in the sun.
"Thankfully, this turned out to
be an overstatement, just barely. I
was 23 years old.
"Mr. Ragsdale started us east.
We turned around and went out
over Billy's Creek, leaving the
paving behind and proceeded to


LaBelle on a shell road, then by
sand Road 27, until we finally saw
a few structures in the distance.
Palmdale at last!
"Old Man Waggoner stood on
his store porch.
'No,' he said, 'this is Citrus
Center. It is too late to make Palm-
dale tonight.' He opened the gate
alongside his store and waved
us into the Citrus Center Camp
Ground Trailer Park, which was
just an open field. As we rolled
through the gate, I heard a terrible
noise and felt an awful jolt. I did
not call attention to it then and we
went on in, bedded down for the
night as usual, in out tent and on
our cots.
"As soon as Mother and Dad
were, asleep, I took the flashlight
and crawled under the car to find
that five of the six universal bolts
had dropped off. Next morning,
as soon as I could see, I got out
to look around for some replace-

ments. There was Henry Ran-
dall's honey house just across the
road and he sold me five bolts for
25 cents. As soon as they were in
place, we were ready to roll and
headed for Palmdale Post Office
where we picked up our mail
forwarded from our residence,
Evansville, Indiana. One of the
letters was from the Evansville
bank where our last $200 was
on deposit; sadly, we found out
it had closed (Banks often folded
during the Depression.) Dad had
a five dollar bill and I had a half
dollar, which I got changed into
two quarters so I could each of
my parents a Christmas present.
The postmaster's son-in-law
offered to help us find Grandpa
land so we could set up campl He
led us to a spot so etherally beau-
tiful that we were speechless."
As you can see, the story is not
over. We will continue with more
of the story of the Wadlow family
on Fisheating Creek next week.

things as personal hygiene, nu-

how to, properly communicate
with each other and team-build-
ing through a variety of games.
"The games are meant to
show that the deputies are no
harm to the kids," Deputy Jack-
son said. "The deputies are here
to build a partnership with the
kids and the community."
During the camp, representa-
tives from the PBSO units such
as the bicycle, mounting and K-9
Units, as well as the Palm Beach
County Fire Rescue, spoke to the
participants about how each de-
partment serves the community,
according to Deputy Sheriff Wil-
lie Brookins.
"The kids have learned team-

Sby deeds."
That start was steeped in reli-
gion.
"Ever since Blaze gave his
life to Christ at age 7, he was a
peacemaker in our family and al-
ways was that around his peers,"
said Mr. Thompson.
It certainly didn't hurt that
when he played ball with the
Blue Devils, Blaze's father also
served as the team's head coach,
from 1985 to 1988. Don Thomp-
son was the head football coach
for the Blue Devils from 1984 to
1992 winning the team's first-
ever state title in 1989.
After high school Blaze did
not play college football, but fo-
cused on his academics while
enrolled at the University of Cen--
tral Florida.
After returning to Pahokee in
1994, Blaze said that he and his
father wanted to become assis-
tant coaches under then-head
coach Joe Marks.
"I remember Coach Marks tell-
ing me at the time that he needed
both an offensive and defensive
line coach and asked both my
dad and I if we wanted to coach,"
Blaze remembers.


work, discipline, respect and the
importance of education," said
Deputy Brookins. "We' tried to
emphasize .the importance of
trusting law enforcement and
not being afraid to talk to depu-
ties and officers," said Deputy
Brookins.
Deputy Sheriff Jessie More-
land also talked to the kids.
"Relating to the youth is my
way of motivating them in order
to stay out of trouble," said Dep-
uty Moreland.
"We would like the parents to
know that what their children get
involved in will be more memo-
rable by them showing up at
their events and showing them
support," Deputy Moreland said.
According to Andrew Flowers,
the site director for the mobile
camp division of the youth ranch-
ers, this is the fourth summer that
Project Harmony has taken place
at the Okeechobee Center.


Mr. Thompson coached the
defensive line until 1998, while
Blaze coached the offensive line
until the 2006 season. Now, Blaze
Thompson is the team manager,
a post he has held since 1999.
'Coach Thompson said that
during his time as an offensive
line coach, he learned a great
deal in preparation for his cur-
rent role.
"What I've learned from my
dad, Mr. Foster and all of the pre-
vious coaches is how to prepare
for a football game,.knowing a
team's tendencies and who the
key players are," said the new
head coach. "I also learned to
let my assistant coaches do their
jobs."
The coach said that he likes to
describe himself as a technician
who teaches his players the skills
needed to succeed on the football
field and he likes to relate to the
players in.a respectful manner.
Coach Thompson's coaching
style may have, in part, led the
Blue Devils in not only winning
their May 24 spring game against
William T. Dwyer High School,
but also winning an Adidas 7-on-
7 camp tournament during the
weekend of June 2-3 at UCF.
However, he said his assistant
coaches had much to do with
the how the recent tournament


Mr. Flowers said that his staff
have benefited a great deal from
the week-long summer camp.
"What the program has done
for the staff is that they have been
able to reach out to the commu-
nity kids in efforts to prevent ju-
venile delinquency," Mr. Flowers
said.
A challenge course kept the
kids engaged to improve metal
capacity, environment educa-
tion and group building.
Woodruff Laputka, a group
leader for the youth ranchers,
said that he was pleased with
how the camp turned out,
"We've gotten a great re-
sponse from the kids, many of
them have had this experience
for the first time," Mr. Laputka
said. "Overall, it was a blast for
them."

played out.
"Defensive coordinator Rick
Lammons and offensive coor-
dinator Jonathan Johnson were
integral in how we performed
in our seven-on-seven tourna-
ment," said the head coach.
The football team earned an
all-expense paid trip to Los Ange-
les from July 18-19 to participate
in the Adidas 7-on-7 national
championship.
Pahokee, along with finalist
Daytona Beach-Seabreeze, will
be the Florida representatives in
the national competition.
The football team, in prepa-
ration for the upcoming season,
will be participating in other
camps, including an offensive/
defensive line camp, to be held
from June 29 to July 1 at Stetson
University.
Coach Blaze Thompson said
he would like to keep things in

"I don't like to claim acco-
lades as all glory goes to God, the
players and the staff," said the
head coach. "Any success that
the Pahokee football has will go
to show the greatness of the tal-
ent of the players and our entire

Need help reading food labels?


TALLAHASSEE Florida Ag-
riculture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles Bronson
says people who want to know
more about the food they eat can
get help deciphering the some-
times confusing food labels.
There is a lot of useful informa-
tion on labels, including nutrition-
al values, ingredients, serving siz-
es, fat and calorie content and net
quantity. The Florida Department
of Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Division of Food Safety has
a brochure available that breaks
down each section and explains
exactly what they mean and how
the consumer can use the infor-
mation for better health.
"In the wake of recent reports
of food borne illnesses as well
as numerous product recalls, the
public is concerned about food


safety issues," Bronson said. "I
think it is timely for us to remind
consumers we can help them, un-
derstand how the label informa-
tion is relevant to them."
For example, knowing what
nutrients are in the products en-
ables people to make healthy food
choices. More importantly, for
people who have food allergies,
carefully reading the label and
knowing what a product contains
can be a matter of life or death.
Making sense of product date
stamps is also important. Dairy,
infant formula and shellfish must
have expiration dates stamped on
them but the majority of prod-
ucts are not required to do so.
There are a number of phrases
used and not all product dating
is related to safety, it is often a
quality issue. "Sell by" gives the


Same Day Service Lab On Premises Repairs While You Wait







Procelain & Whitest Shades Available MDI Implants No More Loose Dentures


retailer a time limit on how long
to have a product out so there is
time for the consumer to take it
home and use it. "Best if used
by" tells consumers how long the
product will be at its, Pest quality
and is not related t6o any safety
concerns. An expiration date tells
when a product should no longer
be consumed because of the po-
tential for bacteria growth or for
loss of nutrient value.
Consumers who want to know
more about the label information
can obtain a brochure by calling
the Department consumer hot-
line at 1-800-HELP FLA (1-800-
FL-AYUDA) or download it by
logging onto the Department's
Division of Food Safety website

Independence Day Declaration of Dependence


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
Call me sentimental, but I still
believe in baseball, mom and ap-
ple pie. Something still happens
to me when I see people waving

patriotic songs
being sung. Call
me optimistic,
but I still believe
in one nation
under God. In
God I still trust.
For us, the
Fourth of July is a John
day in on which Hicks
we declared that
we are an independent people, a
sovereign nation. The Declaration
of Independence was adopted
231 years ago next Wednesday.
Permit me to share some of those


words with you:
"We hold these truths to be
self-evident, that all men are cre-
ated equal, that they are endowed
by their Creator with certain un-
alienable rights, that among these
are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of
Happiness...
We, therefore, the Represen-
tatives of the United States of
America, in General Congress,
assembled, appealing to the Su-
preme Judge of the world for the
rectitude of our intentions, do, in
the Name, and by Authority of the
good People of these Colonies,
solemnly publish and declare,
That these United Colonies are,
and of right ought to be free and
independent states...
And for the support of this
declaration, with a firm reliance
on the protection of divine provi-
dence, we mutually pledge to


each other our lives, our fortunes
and our sacred honor."
It was a Declaration of In-
dependence around which the
people rallied. But in that Decla-
ration of Independence there was
a declaration of dependence not
upon the British government and
King George, but upon God and
upon each other.
Their arguments depended
upon God's natural order we
are created free. The authority
behind these wonderful words
we celebrate came from God.
The founders of this great nation
needed God's authority to declare
their independence.
I believe the colonists trusted
God. I believe that you trust God
too and I believe that if we re-
member that we are dependent
upon God, He will use us to make
fireworks happen not just on the


fourth of July, but every day.
You see, I still expect fireworks.
I still expect miracles. I still expect
excitement and enthusiasm, heal-
ing and conversion. I expect fire-
works to happen every time God
calls us and sends us out. I expect
my faith and my church to make
a difference in my world. And I
want you to expect it, too!
Where would we be today if
the founders of our nation hadn't
exercised the authority God gave
them to declare liberty? Where
would we be today if the disciples
of Jesus hadn't used the authority
God gave them to proclaim God's
truth in the world? Where will the
world be tomorrow if we go forth
to change our world, depending
upon God for our strength and
our vision and taking the author-
ity God has given us? Imagine the
possibilities!

The coming holiday: July Fourth and a special freedom


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
We're coming up on another
holiday; Independence Day. July
seems to be a month when other
countries celebrate their "Inde-
pendence Days" too; France, Can-
ada, Jamaica and some others
that have come into being during
a hot summer month along with
the United States.
This year, the day falls in the
middle of the week and will be
celebrated between two week:
ends. I like to take time on holi-
days to reflect on their meaning
and all of the implications for oth-
ers and myself; and at this time to
especially think about the rights
and freedoms we enjoy. One,
of course, is the freedom of reli-
gion.
History is full of times when
that freedom wasn't available
to people in different parts of
the world; today is one of those
times. There are still parts of the.
world where people are persecut-
ed for their religious beliefs. Not
too long ago, a man was declared
"mentally insane" so he could
leave his native country and not
be put to death and all because
he had changed his religion.
Civil wars are being fought
with people identifying with one


religious faction or another; remi-
niscent of the Crusades in the
Middle Ages. My belief is that we
in the Western World have risen,
matured, grown in our under-
standing of God and have got-
ten beyond the persecution and
damage done in our past but is
still going on .,
in the name of
their religion. I
look with sad-
ness at parts of *" "-
the world where
wars go on or
people are pun-
ished because
of someone's Samuel S.
notion of reli- Thomas
gious "infidel-
ity." On the other hand, we may
be abusing our religious freedom
in another way; ignoring our
right to exercise it. What should
be, "We respect the right of all
to believe as they wish," seems
to be, "You don't have to believe
in anything," and with it comes
the notion, "You don't have to do
anything about it."
I grew up in a state (Pennsyl-
vania) where religious freedom
was a part of the historic founda-
tions. William Penn (the name of
the state means "Penn's Woods")
was a persecuted Quaker and
knew what the meaning of reli-
gious freedom meant. His colony


was chartered to make sure that
people were free to believe in the
God they knew and he welcomed
all to bring their own expressions
to his colony. The idea spread and
has been a part of our heritage
ever since.
Unfortunately, I see the free-
dom stifled; in other parts of the
world as I watch the news, but
also at home by neglect. People
are acutely aware of the loss of
freedom of assembly or free-
dom of speech; the freedom of
religion is more subtle. It is lost
when people no longer think God
is important or at work in their
lives; it is lost when people fail to
stand up for what they believe;
lost when people no longer fol-
low their consciences when they
make choices and it is lost when
we have something but don't use
it; we might as well not have it at
all.
The Christian mandate
is that we are "doers of the
word..."(James 1:22) lest we lose
something at the heart of our life,
our being, our country. I like to
stop and think about how we've
come into being; how we've
made it through the hard times;
wars, depression, internal strife,
corruption and upheavals, and
-have been able to. continue be-
cause I believe God has been
there with us.


I find it sad that we don't thank
Him more than we do, but that
seems to be a part of our nature.
Jesus knew about that: He healed
ten lepers and only one stopped
to thank Him afterward (Luke
17:11 19). My prayer is that, on
the Fourth of July this year, we
may be the ones who stop and
thank Him for His guidance and
all that He does and has done for
us as a people and nation. Thanks
be to God we have the freedom
to thank Him.

Chairman Couse, center, accepts the deed with Museum Secretary, Jeff Barwick, on the right,
witnessing the acceptance event.

Trust bequeaths home to museum


CLEWISTON The Marjorie
Kelly Trust has donated the late
Mrs. Marjorie H. Kelly's residence
to The Clewiston Museum. Mrs.
Kelly, who died recently, had stip-
ulated that her home should be
given to Museum. Mrs. Kelly had
been a major benefactor of the
Museum during her lifetime.


"Marjorie Kelly, through her
past giving and this final gift, has
essentially provided the funds we
needed to purchase our current
property, Museum Chairman Mill-
er Couse said. Proceeds from this
home will allow us to retire the
remaining mortgage debt on our
building." Mr. Couse added, "We


will be forever indebted to Mrs.
Kelly and entire Kelly family for
their unwavering support of our
Museum." The deed for the prop-
erty was presented by Successor
Trustees Alden Wyse, Peggy Jo
McEwen (Mrs. Kelly's niece) and
John Perry, Sr.

By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
As we are celebrating the birth
of our Nation, I believe the follow-
ing poem is very pertinent:
I've pondered a question that
searches my soul, yet, no answer
seems clearly defined;
"Will history record that Amer-
ica survived, the seething unrest
of our time?"
Or have we as a Nation, finally
arrived, at the crest of the moun-
tain we climb;
With nothing left to be written
of us, but the tragedy of a nation's
decline?

It has happed to EVERY great
nation before, NOT ONE avoided
the curse:
And there's no assurance that
we are exempt, their fate could
be ours or worse!
Wake up! America, we shout
in despair, as we view the torment
of change;
Crime in the streets warfare
against law, Perversion and filth
born of greed!
"Must we eat our own flesh -
and drink our own blood, to as-
suage this great lust to destroy?


For the right to dissent and the
will to reject, what has made us
- Whatever, we are?"
God forbid! The price is too
great to be paid, by those who are
yet to be born;
Let's give them a chance that
our fathers gave us, in a nation,
UNITED and STRONG!
"STAND UP! AMERICA!"...let
your voices be heard, reject those
who destroy with their hate;
God can bless this great land,
if TOGETHER we stand, let's us
pray we're not already too late!

2006 ANNUAL DRINKING WATER
QUALITY REPORT
Este informed continene information muy important sobre Su agua beber. Tradfscalo 6 hable con un amigo quien lo entienda blen.
We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Drinking Water quality Report. This report Is designed to form you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal s to provide you with a safe and
dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. If you
have any questions or concerns about the information provided in this report, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed.
WHERE YOUR WATER COMES FROM
The water source for the City of South Bay is surface water that is withdrawn from the Lake Okeechobee Border Canal. The water Is treated by aeration, lime softening, coagulants and filtration. Finally, the water is disinfected using
chlorine before it is delivered to the customers.
HOW WE ENSURE YOUR DRINKING WATER IS SAFE
The City of South Bay routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report Is based on the results of our monitoring for the
penod of January 1 to December 31, 2006. The state allows us to monitor for some contaminants less than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants do not change frequently. Some of the data In the water
quality summary tablere more than one year old but are based on the most recent water analyses performed and are representative of the water quality.
HOW TO READ THE TABLE
The terms used in the water quality summary table and in other arts of this report are defined below,
Action level (AL) the concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.
Maximum contaminant level or MCL the highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum contaminant level goal or MCLG the level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL the highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG the level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control
microbial contaminants.
N/A not applicable
ND means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
ppm parts per million or milligrams per liter is one part by weight of analyte to one million parts by weight of the water sample.
ppi parts per billion or micrograms per liter is one part by weight of analyte to one billion parts by weight of the water sample.
pCl/I picocunes per liter is a measure of the radioactivity in water

ADDITIONAL HEALTH INFORMATION
The sources of drinking water both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring
minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
Inorganic contaminants such as salts and metals, which can benaturally occurring or result from urban tormwater runff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses.
Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and
septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish
limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More
information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at
1-800-426-4791.

CONCURRENT NOTICE (07.02)
Notice to the Public of:
Finding of No Significant Impact on the Environment, and
Request for Release of Funds and Removal of Environmental Conditions
Recipient: City of Clewiston Date: June 28,2007
Address: 115 West Ventura Avenue Telephone Number (863) 983-1484
Clewiston, Florida 33440
TO ALL INTERESTED AGENCIES, GROUPS AND PERSONS:
The City of Clewiston intends to undertake a FY 2006 Economic Development pro-
ject that will be funded by the Florida Small Cities Community Development Block
Grant program:
To construct 4,043 square yards of street improvements and associated drainage in
the Clewiston Commerce Park on behalf of PranaSleep, LLC, who will create 20
new full-time jobs for residents of the City and surrounding Hendry County.
Although the pmject is located in the 500 year floodplain, no part of the project is In
a wetland.. The improvements cannot be undertaken in any other location due to
the selection of the site by the private businesses and the need for the Infrastruc-
ture to support the new business. There are no practicable altematives.
The proposed improvements conform to applicable State floodplain protection stan-
dards and are part of the City's long range floodplain management plan. The pro-
posed actions will not affect natural or beneficial floodplain values, and the
residents of the City will benefit from this project. The engineer for the project will
ensure that any necessary mitigation measures will be taken, if applicable, to
minimize adverse impacts to the environment.
Additional agencies involved in this project include the State of Florida Department of
Community Affairs and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The anticipated permitting agencies include City of Clewiston, Hendry County
Heath Department, and Sout Florida Water Management District and any other
permitting agencies as applicable.
An environmental review of the project has been conducted in accordance with 24
CFR 58, and it has been determined that the activities will have no significant im-
pact on the environment. Therefore, an Environment ImpactStatement (EIS), as
described in the National Environmental Policy Act, will not be prepared. Specific
reason for finding of no significant Impact and decision not to prepare an EIS is
that the project will not significantly affect the quality of the human environment.
No further environmental review of the project will be conducted.
An Environmental Review Record (ERR), which documents the environmental re-
view of the project, is on file at the City of Clewiston's City Manager's Office, 115
West Ventura Avenue, Clewiston, Florida 33440 and is available for public ex-
amination. All interested parties are invited to submit written comments to the at-
tention of the Mr. Wendell Johnson, City Manager, City of Clewiston, 115 West
Ventura Avenue, Clewiston, Florida 33440. Written comments must be received
on or before Monday, July 16, 2007. All comments will be considered, and no
administrative action will be taken until comments are resolved.
The project described above will be funded with Florida Small Cities Community De-
velopment Block Grant funds for FY 2006 projects in the category of Economic
Development from the State of Florida and the U.S. Department of Housing and
Urban Development (HUD), under Title I of the Housing and Community Develop-
ment Act. The City of Clewiston is certifying to the State and to HUD that, its chief
elected official and/or designee, n his or her official capacity, consents to accept
the urisdlcion of the federal courts if an action is brought to enforce respon-
sibilities related to environmental reviews, decision making, and action; and that
these responsibilities have been satisfied. The legal effect of the certification is
that upon approval, the City of Clewiston may expend CDBG funds and the State
and HUD will have satisfied their responsibilities under the National Environmental
Policy Act.
The City of Clewiston anticipates that its Certification and Request for Release of
Funds and Removal of Environmental Conditions will be submitted to the Depart-
ment of Community Affairs (DCA) on or about July 17, 2007. DCA will then allow
a 15 day comment period before taking any action on the request. Objections will
only be accepted by DCA if they meet one of the following conditions: (1) the cer-
tification was not executed by the City of Clewiston's environmental certifying offi-
cer Mayor Mali Chamness or another officer of the local government approved by
DCA; or (2) the ERR Indicates omission of a required decision, finding, or step
applicable to the environmental review process. Objections must be prepared and
su mifted in accordance with 25 C.FR. 58 within 15 days following DCA's receipt
of the Request for Release of Funds. If you have comments or objections, submit
them to the Florida Department of Community Affairs, Att: Judy Peacock, Florida
