for future in biofuel


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Biofuel it seems you hear the
word everywhere these days.
Scientists, agronomists, econ-
omists and business people are
looking to biofuels to replace fos-
sil fuels like oil which are becom-
ing scarce in an energy hungry
world.
The sustainability of biofuels
as an energy source is the reason
for this interest that is, they can
readily be produced using com-
mon ingredients like corn, sor-
ghum, sugarcane and many other
biological materials that are easily
replaced.
Biofuels will reduce the world's
reliance on oil, which is expen-
sive, and becoming harder to find
in large quantities. Oil is at the
heart of many of the world's most
serious human issues just take a
look at the Middle East. Biofuels
are also safer for the environment
because they cut down on the gas
emissions that result from burn-


ing fossil fuels think pollution
and global warming.
Hendry-Glades is situated in a
unique location to benefit from
the production of biofuels, which
holds the promise of good jobs
and a better economy. The con-
cept has been studied by local
experts for quite some time and
plans are taking shape.
University of Florida Professor,
Soil and Water Science of the IFAS
Center Edward Hanlon, and John
Capece, PhD and Consulting En-
gineer Southern Datastream, have
been collaborating on the Hendry-
Glades biofuel project. Structured
around education, this project is
intended to put Hendry-Glades
"in the game," providing techni-
cal training in pertinent biofuel-
related jobs of the future.
The idea is to take advantage
of what Hendry County has an
abundance of to tap into local
resources and talent to create a
biofuel center.

Herrero runs for District 2 seat


Hello,
My name is Andy Herrero and I am run-
ning for District 2 County Commissioner. I
was born in New York and raised from the
age of three in Miami, Florida. I come from
a Spanish heritage and speak both English
and Spanish fluently. At the age of 22 years
old, I opened my own carpet and upholstery
cleaning company, as well as home renova-
tions and repairs. I have owned my business
for over 25 years.
In 1992 I met my wife, Lisa Herrero. She
is a Florida Licensed Realtor with The King
Group Realtors here in LaBelle. We have two
wonderful sons. Alex, who graduated from
the University of Miami in May 2010 and will
go on to graduate school in Spring of 2011,


and Brandon, a Freshman at LaBelle High
School, who has grown up in LaBelle all his
life and has made many wonderful friends
in our community through his involvement
with LaBelle Youth Soccer and his participa-
tion in school.
In 1997 we decided it was time to move
out of the big city and move to a smaller,
more family oriented community where
we could raise our children. So we took a
leap of faith, sold our home and business in
Miami and moved to beautiful LaBelle. We
came to know LaBelle through my father
Andy Herrero, Sr. and my step-mother Ruby
Herrero (Deese) who was born and raised

Biofuel
Continued From Page 1

Hendry-Glades agriculture has a lot of
what the biofuel industry needs. John ex-
plains by taking a look at the farm system,
starting with the main, traditional purpose
of farming food. Historically, biomass is
grown and harvested to supply people with
food. However, some of that biomass may
be converted to energy, including electricity,
ethanol and biodiesel.
The biggest factor in sustainability, he
said, is improving the farming system and
creating a balance in key areas: greenhouse
gas (responsible for global warming), car-
bon and energy; along with farming activi-
ties like water and soil conservation, fertiliz-
er use and its release into the environment.
Another key element is storing water on
farm land. This will provide an opportunity
for farmers to produce food and fuel and to
build a better business mold keeping agri-
culture viable locally in the future. Holding
water on farm land will have the additional
effect of improving our estuarine system
and provide a continuous supply of good
water during the dry season, Ed adds.
According to Ed, applying this Hendry
County system would help meet environ-
mental goals.
Holding water on farm land will filter out
undesirable chemicals that pollute water
sources. As a part of the total process, hold-


ing water can limit the Total Maximum Daily
Load (TMDL) of chemicals which has been
set for the Caloosahatchee Basin. At this
time, the TMDLs are set only for nitrogen.
(Too much nitrogen in the water can cause
a serious algae bloom that depletes oxygen
from the river and estuary, killing fish and
other plants.) Scientists are currently work-
ing on TMDLs for phosphorous.
Another part of the overall system is a
Basin Management Action Plan that can
designate who's responsible for a specific
area's clean up. Apportioning the respon-
sibility means it will be easier to clean the
water before it goes into the river.
The key to this, John said, is making it
worthwhile for farmers to build in water
storage for carbon holding. The system
would lower the cost of cleaning the water
and paying farmers for their water storage
service (treating water as a crop) would en-
sure that agriculture would remain viable in
this area as well as improve water quality.
It would be an alternative to buying up
ag land for full ecological reasons.
The payoff would be in clean water and
another income stream for agriculture giv-
ing farmers another reason to stay in busi-
ness.
The whole process is tricky, John said,
and people in all segments of the process
must understand how everything affects
every part of the equation, from the tractor
driver on down the line.
There are three components to this plan:
research (in the economy, field research,
energy biomass); education K-12 and up;

and economic development.
To be sure, there's a lot involved in this
process. It means orchestrating the various
components including improving sugar
harvest, carbon sequestration in the soil
and water storage filtering.
This plan would be an economic ve-
hicle for Hendry County. Because the area
already has much of the infrastructure
needed to capitalize on such a process, it
can become a focal point for biofuels in
the future. In recent years some locals have
experimented with possible biofuels like
jatropha (which is very susceptible to freez-
ing), but they have not worked out. It will
just take the right combination of biomass
(crops), along with environmental controls
and education.
In addition to all these elements, farmers
have to make a profit on their efforts or it
will never happen.
Of course, there are long and short term
issues that need to be resolved. In Florida,
John said there is 1/2 acre of farmland per


Military members whose service was in-
voluntarily extended, or whose retirement
was suspended between September 11,
2001 and September 30, 2009, due to stop
loss are entitled to retroactive payments of
$500 for each month they were extended,
according to Department of Defense offi-
cials. The deadline to apply for the benefits
is October 21, 2010.
The 2009 War Supplemental Appropria-
tions Act established the Retroactive Stop


person. To produce ethanol, 1/2 to two
acres per person are required. So, to pro-
duce ethanol you will necessarily decrease
food production.
In addition, it is not desirable to use pub-
lic natural land for farms.
In the end, John said it may be most sus-
tainable to grow algae in an industrial pro-
cess to supply biofuel. However, he said this
is a complex process and it will take a long
time to get there. Using our waste material
is the "first best" way to produce electricity.
By utilizing this system, Hendry-Glades
can keep its traditional agricultural base
intact. Agriculture would remain the area's
main source of income and its culture, at
the same time providing a good living for
our residents. It would create much-needed
fuel and produce clean water for our envi-
ronment.
To top it off, Hendry-Glades could con-
tinue as a main contributor to our national
food supply and remain a haven for wild-
life.

in LaBelle.
Together, my wife and I worked hard to
build our business All In One Ventures Inc.
I do all kinds of commercial and residential
repairs as well as carpet and upholstery
cleaning using a truck mounted system to
clean. We still have our company to the pres-
ent time in which we serve the surrounding
county's of Hendry, Glades, Lee, and Col-
lier. We have gained the trust, confidence
and friendship of the community. Over the
years we have grown to know many people
hi our community and gained many friend-
ships, relationships, and experiences, and
because of this we are most grateful.
I have found myself to be self-motivated,
and a team player. I have gained many years
of management and organization skills as
well as leadership skills through owning my
own businesses and I look forward to the
opportunity that will allow me to excel and
apply my knowledge, skills and experience
to helping this community. I am bilingual, I
speak fluent Spanish and with the percent-
age of Hispanic residents in Hendry County
I feel that this helps to make me an asset to
the board.
Some of you have asked me, "What are
you going to do for us if you are elected, my
response is, "I will not promise you some-
thing that I cannot do, but what I will prom-
ise you is that if I am elected, I will give you
what you pay for." We as tax payers pay our
commissioners a full time salary for a part
-time job with all of the county benefits,
health insurance, and a retirement plan. I
will give you a full-time commissioner.


I have lived in District 2, since we moved
to LaBelle in 1997 and have seen the chang-
es that have taken place, but also see where
changes need to take place. I want to be
your leader for District 2. Allow me to grow
with you, let us work together for the future
of Hendry County. Let me be your voice in
the community. Let me work for you. Let's
make changes together. Remember to vote
on November 2. "Let Your Voice Be Heard"
- Your vote counts.
If you would like to help support this
campaign and have a sign in your home or
business or have any questions or concerns,
please feel free to call me, I'll be happy to
meet with you. I can be reached at cell 863-

As party-going ghosts and goblins cel-
ebrate Halloween this October, Hendry
County Sheriff Steve Whidden reminds ev-
eryone to keep the party off the road.
"There isn't a Halloween costume clever
enough to hide an impaired driver who has
made the poor decision to get behind the
wheel," said Sheriff Whidden. "Whether
you've had one too many or way too many it
is just not worth the risk. Remember, Buzzed
Driving is Drunk Driving."
Nighttime is an especially dangerous time
to be on the road, but Halloween night is of-
ten one of the deadliest nights of the year for
impaired drivers. According to the National
Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHT-
SA), in 2008, 58 percent of all highway fatali-
ties across the nation on Halloween night (6
p.m. Oct. 31 to 5:59 a.m. Nov. 1) involved a
driver or a motorcycle rider with a Blood Al-
cohol Concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher,
which is illegal in every state.
"The scariest part of Halloween isn't the
spooky costumes and scary pranks," said
Sheriff Whidden. "It's the fact that too often
impaired drivers don't plan ahead and end-

A DUI sobriety checkpoint is scheduled in
Hendry County for the weekend of October
29, 2010.
This operation will take place in an undis-
closed location in Hendry County. Hendry
County Sheriff Steve Whidden stated, "In
our continued effort to protect the citizens
and visitors in Hendry County we are par-
ticipating in the "Buzzed Driving is Drunk
Driving" campaign. No matter who you are,
drunk driving has scary consequences. Not
only do you risk killing or injuring yourself or
someone else, but the trauma and financial
costs of a crash or an arrest for driving while
impaired can be significant."
This checkpoint emphasis is placed on
the following:
1. Removing impaired drivers from the
roadway;
2. Heightening awareness;
3. Educating the public on the dangers of
drunk driving.
Various community partnerships, includ-
ing planned DUI sobriety checkpoints, are
established with the goal of education and
information for the public on traffic safety
issues.

ommends these simple tips for a safe Hal-
loween:
Plan a safe way home before the festivi-
ties begin;
Before drinking, designate a sober driv-

If you're impaired, use a taxi, call a sober
friend or family member or use public trans-

If you happen to see a drunk driver on the
road, don't hesitate to contact your local law

Centenarians look back on their life and regrets


By Les Morgan, pastor
Caloosa Baptist Church, LaBelle
Some time back, I read an interview given
by people who were at least 100 years old.
They were asked to talk about major
changes that had witnessed in their life,
where they were when significant events in
history had taken place (Wright brothers in
flight, automobiles rolling off the assembly
lines, the end of WW I and WW II, the rise
of Communism, etc...) and the like. One
inquiry probed was what regrets they may


have had. The replies from those who had
experienced ten decades of life were surpris-
ing.
"I never took enough risks," said one.
"I wasn't assertive enough when I could
have been," admitted another. "I wish I
would have been bolder. I believe could
have made a difference in this life."
A third whimsically said, "I wished I had
spent more time with my family. I would give
anything to talk with some of them now. I
miss them so much." Then the tears fell.

Child's play?
There was a recent incident at a local
church where one our boys had to be air-
lifted by helicopter to Lee Memorial Hospital
due to another boy using a strangle hold on
him to the point where he lost conscious-


ness. When he was finally let go he fell to
the ground on his face breaking his nose
and fracturing his skull. What really is alarm-
ing is the whole incident was blamed on
child's play. Since when does child's play
involve choking another person to the point
of unconsciousness?
And what if anything was done to the
teen that showed this aggressive behavior?
It is the responsibility of parents, schools
and church leaders to teach our youth that
this kind of behavior is unacceptable. I am
speaking out because the outcome could
have been a lot more serious and I do not
want this sort of thing to happen to anyone
else. We need to keep our children safe.


Letters to the Editor


Our statewide average unemployment
rate is still above 11 percent and we remain
in the midst of a troubling economic climate.
With that in mind, I believe the Environmen-
tal Protection Agency's (EPA) planned regu-
lations on greenhouse gas emissions from
stationary sources will only further strain our
economy and contribute to more job loss in
our state. All sorts of businesses will be af-
fected since stationary sources can include
agricultural sites, commercial facilities, and
hospitals.
Representing Florida Citrus Grower As-
sociates, Inc. a Florida-based citrus grow-
ers organization, Florida's economy will
face serious consequences if these new
rules by the EPA are enacted at the start of
2011. Businesses will be required to obtain
expensive and time-consuming permits for

munity can certainly expect to feel the pinch
of these new regulations.
Florida's farmers cannot handle more
regulations that will make it harder for us to
survive in this economy. Congress needs to
quickly take action to postpone these new
requirements before it is too late.

There was one surprise I had when I read
the list of regrets from these people who had
seen so many changes and experienced so
much of life.
Not one of them said, "I wish I had made
more money." It appears to be insignificant
in the grand scheme of things. No regrets
were expressed for having not spent more
time at the office banging out the big bucks.
Amazing!
Some people have no hope at all. Case in
point Bertrand Russell.
Russell was a brilliant thinker, yet he
made no room for God in his thoughts
whatsoever. As a result he could not figure
out the mystery of life. A life without any
room for God is laced with regrets.
A cursory review of some of Russell's
writings will attest to this. Example: "All the
labors of the ages -the inspiration, the
noonday brightness of human genius -are
destined to extinction. The whole temple of
man's achievement must inevitably be bur-
ied in the debris of a universe in ruins."
How cheerful! (Tongue in cheek, of
course)
But exclude God from your life there is
no other way to think. One's life lacks mean-
ing, a sense of fulfillment and deep, endur-
ing purpose.
Contrast such purposelessness with
someone like Joni Eareckson Tada. In 1967,
she broke her neck in a tragic diving acci-
dent in Chesapeake Bay. She has admitted to
days of dark depression and despair unlike
anything she could have imagined.
However, she learned to commit her an-
guish, and times where there seemed to be
no hope to Christ. What a difference!
She has written several books. Though a
quadriplegic she sings, paints with a paint
brush she holds in her mouth. Christmas
cards are available everywhere with her art-
work.
Her challenges as a virtually immobile
person have not held her back. In fact, it
is her so called "limitations" that have pro-
pelled her into being active in various min-
istries for the disabled. She also hosts a na-
tional radio program and continues to be
involved in multiple international efforts for
those with physical limitations. Her paraly-
sis may prohibit her from feeding herself or
bathing herself, or caring for her most basic
needs.
Yet, her passion for life and others is un-
stoppable. She is a deeply committed Chris-

tian. She talks of heaven & what it will mean
for her.
"I have hope in the future," she says. "The
Bible speaks about bodies being glorified. I
know the meaning of that now. It's the time
after my death here when I, the quadriple-
gic, will be on my feet dancing."

Have any regrets
in your life? Ready for
some release from the
junk that clogs you
from breathing with
emotional ease? It is Les Morgan
time to chuck that
baggage into the near-
est dumpster!
Here is a list five things you will never re-
gret:
1. Showing kindness to an aged person.
2. Destroying a letter written in anger.
3. Offering an apology that will save a
friendship.
4. Stopping a scandal that was ruining a
reputation.
5. Refraining from gossip when others
around you delight in it.
One old adage goes like this: "A man is not
old until regrets take the place of dreams."
Another great piece of advice says, "It is
better to sleep on what you plan to do than
to be kept awake by what you've done."
The truth is if we fill our hours with re-
grets over the failures of yesterday, and with
worries over the problems of tomorrow, we
have no today in which to be thankful.
You do have an option, however. You
don't have to receive God's spiritual bless-
ings if you do not want them. You can but
them in a sealed bottle, and throw it in the
sea. That bottle of blessing will float sur-
rounded in a shoreless ocean, and will re-
main dry, corked up, waxed over and im-
penetrable. Grace won't come.
However, regret will.
It's your call.

Church, located 200 yards behind Flora & Ella's

Fort Myers Pastor chosen


for key diocese position


Venice, FL -Bishop Frank J. Dewane
has announced that he has appointed Mon-
signor Stephen E. McNamara to serve as
Vicar General of the Diocese of Venice in
Florida.
Bishop Dewane noted: "This is done after
much prayer and broad consultation among
the priests of the Diocese of Venice."
The primary role of a Vicar General is
to assist the Bishop and share administra-
tive authority in the overall governing of the
Diocese. This appointment came as a result
of the death of former Vicar General, Monsi-
gnor Edward D. Moretti.
Msgr. McNamara has been Pastor at Res-
urrection of Our Lord Parish in Fort Myers
since 1982. He was born in Ennis, County
Clare, Ireland. On June 10, 1967, and was or-
dained a priest at St. Patrick College, Carlow,
Ireland, for the Diocese of St. Augustine.
"It is an honor and privilege to be called
to serve in this important capacity for the Di-


ocese of Venice by Bishop Dewane," Msgr.
McNamara said. "I ask for the prayers of all
the faithful of the Diocese as I take on this
new and exciting challenge."
It is required for a bishop to appoint
a Vicar General to assist him in the gover-
nance of the diocese. As a general rule, one
Vicar General is to be appointed per diocese.
The Vicar General exercises his office in the
name of the Diocesan Bishop.
Over the years, Msgr. McNamara has
served on numerous boards and is currently
Chairman of the Priest Personnel Board, as
well as being Treasurer of the Diocese, and
Dean of the Central Deanery. He is a mem-
ber of the College of Consultors, the Dioce-
san Finance and Investment Committee, the
Real Estate Board, the Planning and Devel-
opment Committee, the Peer Review Com-
mittee, and is also an ex-officio member of
the Diocesan Presbyteral Council.

Cowboys falter in fourth quarter against Dunbar


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Even though the score doesn't show it,
Cowboy Head Coach Hal Bennett said his
team "had their number" for the first three
quarters against Dunbar Friday, Oct. 8. A field
goal by David Antunez in the first quarter put
the Cowboys' only score on the board; final
34-3.
He said the Cowboy defense just wore
down they were all over the field, with the
best defense coach said they've played all
year. Unfortunately, they didn't get much
rest with all their time on the field.
"We had them frustrated," Coach Ben-
nett said, "but they frustrated our offense,"
LaBelle never moved the ball, he said,
with just one long pass during the entire
game. "We finally have tackling," coach
said, "now we need blocking."
The Cowboys held Dunbar to about 103


yard rushing. "All their stats are for the fourth
quarter," coach explained. "Offensively, we
couldn't get anything going. They did things
with their defense we couldn't handle," he
said adding, "we did not block well." Coach
Bennett said the Cowboys would be going
back to the drawing board this week with
their offensive line.
"We need to get five guys who can get
after it, create running lanes and block so
we can pass," he said. "It was disappointing.
We're capable of doing better. Our priority
will be the offensive line," Coach Bennett
commented.
Friday night is LaBelle's Homecoming
and the team will face a big, physical Lemon
Bay team. "Their offense will be our chal-
lenge," Coach Bennett said.
"We're better than they are," coach said,
"if we can get the ball to some of our mov-
ers Taylor Jordan, Chris Garcia or William


Thomas. "He added that the Cowboys will
be a little undersized compared to Lemon
Bay and will need better blocking and tack-
ling.
Offensive Player of the Week sopho-
more #22 Derek Bass stepped in when
Taylor Jordan went out in the third quarter,
throwing a 74-yard pass and making six out
of ten passes. Coach Bennett: "I was im-
pressed with his performance."
Defensive Player of the Week #9
Noel Gutierrez, back from the injured list,
made seven tackles, three quarterback pres-
sures, one interception and three tackle for
losses.
Special Teams Player of the Week
senior #31 Chris Garcia's punts were out-
standing, with a 50-yarder. The shortest was
37 yards.
Practice Player of the Week senior #8
Michael Pittman.


Wouldn't it be nice to learn at a glance

fared last night, or to discover who and
where it plays next? Wouldn't it be great

Low-income housing complex going


up on Jaycee Lions Drive


Construction workers with DeAngelis
Diamond Port Charlotte are hard at work on
Pollywog Creek Commons a 64-unit apart-
ment community on Jaycee Lions Drive for
low-income, migrant and seasonal workers.
The project's owner is Homestead-based
Rural Neighborhoods Inc., a private, non-
profit agency that has a string of similar proj-
ects in the smaller, mainly agricultural towns
around the state: Homestead, Immokalee,
Fort Pierce, Okeechobee, Ruskin, Winter
Haven.
The LaBelle project's costs are subsidized
by federal and state programs, but even so,


"There is some degree of risk in trying to
build rental housing in the current market,"
Rural Neighborhoods president Steve Kirk
said. "It's not just home ownership that's
down. There are sizeable vacancy rates and
occupancy issues in most communities."
Rural Neighborhoods has largely avoided
that because its communities have subsi-
dized rent, Kirk said, residents are getting a
good deal and don't want to leave if they can
avoid it.
Also, he said, there's little competition
from the private sector. "A typical for-profit
wouldn't build affordable housing."

cated west of County Road 833, South of State Road 80, within the vicinity
of Sears Road, Collins Slough Road, Loop Road, Off Road Grade Road and
C-3. The use is reasonable-beneficial, will not interfere with any presently
existing legal use of water and is consistent with the public interest. The
permit was issued September 27, 2010 to Barron Water Control District at
PO. Box 1606, LaBelle, Florida, 33975.
The Permit and Staff Report, including limiting conditions to provide rea-
sonable assurances that the projects meet SFWMD statutes and rules can
be obtained by contacting Elizabeth Vegullla, Deputy Clerk, during normal
business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except le-
gal holidays, at 3301 Gun Club Road, West Palm Beach, FL 33406 or by
telephone at (561) 686-8800 extension 6739.
The Districts agency action as set forth in the Staff Report shall become
final unless a timely petition for an administrative hearing is filed under Sec-
bons 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes before the deadline for fil-
ing a petition. The procedures for petitoning for a hearing are set forth
below, followed by the procedures for pursuing mediation.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the District's permit
bng decision may petiton for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The pebtion must
contain the informaon set forth below and must be filed (received) in the
Office of the Clerk at the SFWMD Headquarters at 3301 Gun Club Road,
West Palm Beach, FL 33406. Pursuant to Rule 28-106.104 Fla. Admin. Code,
any documents received after 5:00 p.m. shall be filed as of 8:00 a.m. on the
next regular business day. Filings by e-mail will not be accepted. A copy of
the Petition must also be mailed at the time of filing to the persons named
above at the address indicated. Failure to file a petion within the 21 days
of publication of notce, or other receipt of the written notice, whichever
first occurs first, constitutes a waiver of any right such person has to an ad-
ministrative determinaton (hearing) pursuant to Sectons 120.569 and
120.57, Fla. Stat. as provided by Subsecbon 28-106.11(4) Fla. Admin. Code.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petiton to the applicant at the ad-
dress indicated above at the time of filing.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the District's action is
based must contain the information set forth in Rule 28-106.201(2), Fla. Ad-
min. Code, including:
(1) Identificaton of the acton being contested, including the permit
number, application number, District le number or any other SFWMD
identification number, if known.
(2) The name, address and telephone number of the petitioner and peti-
tioner's representative, ifany.
(3)An explanation of how the petitioner's substanal interests will be af-
fected by the agency determination.
(4)A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the
SFWMD's decision.
(5)A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none,
the petition must so indicate.
(6)A concise statement of the ulbmate facts alleged, including the specific
facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the
SFWMD's proposed action.
(7) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the pebtioner contends
require reversal or modification of the SFWMD's proposed action.
8)If disputed issues of material fact exist, the statement must also in-
cude an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules
or statutes.
(9) A statement of the relief sought by the petioner, stating precisely the
acbon the petitioner wishes the SFWMD to take with respect to the
SFWMD's proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the material facts on which the District'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, Fla. Admin. Code. Because the administrative hearing process
is designed to formulate final agency acton, the filing of a petition means
that the District's final action may be different from the position taken by it
in this notice.
The procedures for pursing mediabon are set forth in Secbon 120.573 Fla.
Stats, and Rules 28-106.111 and 28-106.401-405 Fla. Admin. Code. The
SFWMD is not proposing mediation for these agency actions under Secbon
120.573. Fla. Stat. at this bme.

Amendment 4: Referendum votes


by Katrina Elsken
Independent Newspapers
On Nov. 2, voters will decide the fate of six
amendments proposed to the state's consti-
tution. The amendment generating the most
controversy statewide is Amendment #4.
Amendment #4: Referenda required
for adoption and amendment of local
government comprehensive plans.
Ballot summary: Establishes that be-
fore a local government may adopt a new
comprehensive land use plan, the proposed
plan or amendment shall be subject to vote
of the electors of the local government by
referendum, following preparation by the
local planning agency, consideration by the
governing body and notice. Provides defini-
tions.
Financial Impact statement: This amend-
ment's impact on local government expen-
diture cannot be estimated precisely. Local
governments will incur additional costs due
to the requirement to conduct referenda
in order to adopt comprehensive plans or
amendments therein. The amount of such
costs depends upon the frequency, timing
and method of the referenda and includes
the cost of the ballot preparation, election
administration and associated expenses.
The impact on state government expendi-
tures will be insignificant.
Sponsor: Florida Hometown Democ-
racy Inc. PAC
Background: Amendment #4 is spon-
sored by a political Action Committee, Flori-
da Hometown Democracy. President Lesley
Blackner, a Palm Beach land use attorney,
claims that "mismanaged growth destroys
communities." Florida Hometown Democ-
racy claims that the amendment will add an-
other layer of protection against unwanted
and out of control development.
Florida Hometown Democracy Inc.
started collecting petition signatures for this
amendment in 2003. The group is led by Mr.
Blackner and Tallahassee environmental
attorney Ross Burnaman. Under the cur-
rent system, proposed changes to a city or
county comprehensive plan are reviewed
by the local planning commission, at pub-
lic hearings, receive recommendations from
local government planning staff, reviewed
by state agencies, and voted on by county
or city commissions (or councils). These
changes must also be approved by the
Florida Department of Community Affairs. If
Amendment #4 passes, all would be put to
a vote in a local referendum.
Supporters of Amendment #4 claim that
elected officials too often ignore the wishes
of the voters when it comes to comprehen-
sive plan changes and the proposed amend-
ment will give local residents more control
over the growth.
Opponents to Amendment #4 say put-
ting every comprehensive plan change on a
ballot could be costly and confusing to the
voters; it could cause local governments to
pay for numerous special elections or delay
proposed plan changes until the next sched-
uled election.
Floridians for Smarter Growth maintains
the amendment would hurt business devel-
opment, cause the state to lose even more
jobs and further depress Florida's economy.
They call it the "vote on everything" amend-
ment, and claim it would cause costly delays


to growth that the state needs to recover
from the current economic downturn. In fis-
cal year 2006, there were 6,406 amendments
to local comprehensive plans.
Supporters: Florida Hometown Democ-
racy Inc., The Sierra Club.
Opponents: Floridians for Smarter
Growth, The Florida League of Cities, the
Florida Association of Counties, the Florida
Chamber of Commerce.
