law, which prescribes require-
ments for each department and
agency of state government to
submit a planning document and
supporting budget request, is ade-
quate and an additional task force
is not needed.

WhatYour Vote Means:

YES If approved by voters,
Amendment #1 would establish
a long-range budget-planning
process, putting both budget and
revenue estimates together in one
document. It would create a Gov-
ernment Efficiency Task Force
(appointed every four years by
the Governor, Senate President
and Speaker of the House) to seek
input'from the public, executive
and judicial branches and create a
long-range financial plan.

NO If Amendment #1 is not
approved by voters, the current
laws as set by Section 19 of Article
III of the State Constitution will
remain in place as originally pro-
posedby the Taxation and Budget
Reform Commission and
approved by the voters in 1992.

Financial Impact: There is not
a direct financial impact on state
or local government.
Note: The Financial Impact
Estimating Conference is not
required to adopt and prepare
official financial impact state-
ments to accompany proposed
constitutional amendments
which are placed on the ballot by
the Florida Legislature.

OfficialTtle: Requiring Broad-
er Public Support for Constitu-
tional Amendments or Revisions

Proposes an amendment to
Section 5 of Article XI of the State
Constitution to require that any
proposed amendment to or revi-
sion of the State Constitution,
whether proposed by the Legisla-
ture, by initiative, or by any other
method, must be. approved by at
least 60 percent of the voters of;
the state voting on the measure,
rather than by a simple majority.
This proposed amendment
would not change the current
requirement that a proposed con-
stitutional amendment imposing
a new state tax or fee be approved
by at least 2/3 of the voters of the
state voting in the election in
which such an amendment is

Citizen information
hotline open
In response to localized flood-
ing from recent rainfall, the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District has activated its Cit-
izen Information Line (CIL) so
that residents in the 16-county
region can report flooding and
get information regarding water
conditions. Hours of operation
will be based on the volume of
calls received and weather con-
The Citizen Information Line
telephone number is toll-free
(877) 429-1294 or locally (239)
338-2929, Ext. 7780.
Canals throughout the region
have been lowered to accommo-
date large amounts of stormwa-
ter runoff.
District officials encourage
residents to look to their local
and county officials for specific
instructions in case of emergen-
cies or flooding.

Amendment Type: Legisla-
tive/Joint Resolution, this amend-
ment was placed on the ballot by
the Florida Legislature during the
2005 Legislative Session. It was
required to pass both the Senate
and House by a 60% vote to be eli-
gible for the ballot.

Common Cause

This Amendment was placed
on the ballot via the Legislature. It
was required to pass both the
Senate and House by a 60 percent

FOR: Florida's Constitution is
:the easiest to amend in our
nation. In recent years, ballot ini-
tiatives have become a vehicle for
well-financed special interest
groups to protect their interests
via the state's most sacred docu-
ment. By implementing a higher
threshold for approval of constitu-
tional amendments, it broadens
consensus because a higher per-
centage of Florida's electorate will
be required to pass the initiative.

AGAINST: When issues are not
passed through the Legislature,
the ballot initiative processes criti-
cal to ensuring the peoples' voic-
es arestill heard. The citizen initia-
tive process remains a vital .check
on government when, for what-
ever reasons, the government
refuses to act. Requiring a higher
percentage of the electorate
could diminish an initiative's
chances of being approved.

What Your Vote Means
YES If approved by voters,
SAm4endment #3 would increase
the number of votes needed to
approve ballot initiatives from 50
percent'+1 to 60 percent +1 of
those voting on the measure.

NO If Amendment #3 is not
approved by voters, the current
requirement of 50 percent +1
Approval would remain in place.

Since Relay For Life is a com-
munity gathering rather than an
athletic event, anyone and every-
one can participate. Businesses,
clubs, families, friends, hospitals,
churches, schools, and service
organizations form teams. These
teams share a common purpose
- their support of the American
Cancer Society's mission.
Why Relay For Life
The power of Relay allows a
community to grieve for those lost
to cancer and to celebrate those
who have survived. For a newly
diagnosed patient, Relay For Life
offers an opportunity to meet oth-
ers who have fought this battle
and won. For the cancer patient in
treatment, Relay offers the oppor-
tunity to share experiences with
others. For the long-term survivor,
Relay brings recognition that the
community cares about their
struggle and closure to a trying
time in life.
Another group finding hope in
Relay For Life is caregivers. These
individuals give their time, love,
and support to friends, family, and
neighbors who face cancer. At
Relay, everyone understands the
challenges and joys of being a
caregiver. There is peace of mind
in knowing that together we can
face the challenges ahead.
Where does the Money Go?
In the broadest sense, all the
money raised goes to eliminating
cancer as a major health concern.
The money raised is central to
supporting the American Cancer
Society's mission, which aims to
focus efforts in four main areas:
research, education, advocacy,
and service.
The American Cancer Society
is the largest non-profit, non- gov-
ernmental founder of cancer
research in the United States, hav-
ing spent over $2 billion dollars
on cancer research since 1946.
We teach people how to avoid
preventable cancers, when to get
early detection tests, what treat-
ment options exist and how to
care for the cancer patient. We
sponsor support groups, hold
classes, seminars and forums, do
outreach to health professionals
who need to know the latest
information on treatment and
clinical trials, and we develop pro-
grams aimed at youth and adults
on the advantages :of healthy
lifestyle choices (don't smoke, eat
fruits. and vegetables, exercise
regularly, use sunscreen, follow
early detection guidelines).

and music performance assess-

Legislative advocacy at the fed-
eral, state, and local levels is
another area where the American
Cancer Society makes a differ-
ence. Advocacy is a force multi-
plier in the war against cancer.
Changes in laws can impact mil-
lions of people, exponentially
expanding and enhancing the
American Cancer Society's mis-
sion to eliminate cancer as a
major health problem. The public
policy arena can be as powerful a
tool against cancer as the lab.

ACS provides free, around-the-
clock information and support by
phone (800-ACT-2345) or com-
puter (www.cancer.orgy) every
day and night of the year. With
upwards of 80,000 volunteers in
Florida, we provide services
directly to cancer patients and
their families. They have three
Hope Lodges in Florida, providing
free lodging to patients who need
to travel for treatment. We pro-
vide transportation for cancer
patients to their doctor's appoint-
ments and treatments, help peo-
ple cope with their illness through
support groups, offer scholar-
ships to young cancer survivors,
make possible summer camps
and recreational outings for chil-
dren with cancer, and provide
organized opportunities for the
public to join the fight against
Every dollar raised by the
American Cancer Society is strate-
gically invested in the fight against
cancer 15.9 percent going
toward research, 22.4 percent
toward prevention programs,
14.6 percent toward detection
programs and 22.7 percent
toward direct patient services.
The Wall Street Journal has called
the American Cancer Society "the
very model of an efficient charity"
because only about 18 percent of
our money goes toward fund rais-
ing and less than .7 percent goes
toward overall management of
the organization. ACS keeps the
administrative costs relatively low
because they're a volunteer-led
organization that is fortunate to
have more than one million vol-
unteers working on our behalf
across the country.
Relay for Life will be held in
Frostproof on Friday and Satur-
day, March 23 and 24, 2007. San-

Amendment requires anti-smoking campaign

Part 2 in a series
Editor's note: Florida voters will
be asked to decide on six proposed
amendments to the Florida Consti-
tution in November. Originally,
eight amendments were pro-
posed. Amendment #2 (which
dealt with term limits) was with-
drawn and Amendment #5
(which proposed a nonpartisan
board to determine voting districts)
was ruled unconstitutional by the
Florida Supreme Court. This series
of articles on the proposed amend-
ments is designed to help ourread-
ers better understand them before
going to the polls.
The following information was
provided by VoteSmart Florida.
VoteSmartFlorida.org is a non-prof-
it, non-partisan organization com-
posed of more than 60 diverse
groups including community
organizations, trade associations,

tion on proposed constitutional
amendments and the process by
which they get on the ballot.

of Using Tobacco.
Official Ballot Summary: To pro-
tect people, especially youth, from
addiction, disease, and other health
hazards of using tobacco, the Legis-
lature shall use some Tobacco Set-
tlement money annually for a com-
prehensive statewide tobacco
education and prevention program
using Centers for Disease Control
best practices. It specifies some
program components, emphasiz-
ing youth, requiring one-third of
total annual funding for advertising.
Annual funding is 15 percent of

Known Opponents:

Were paid signature gatherers
used to place this on the ballot? Yes,
more than $1 million was spent
with California-based PCI Consul-
tants to pay professionals to collect
Top Contributors: $1.5 Million -
American Cancer Society, Florida
Division, $495,000 -American Heart
Association, $175,000 American
Lung Association of Florida.
Arguments: -
For: In Florida, nearly 29,000
deaths are attributable to tobacco
use annually, and the threat of
tobacco is greatest among youth.
Florida receives more than $360
million annually from the tobacco
settlement, yet only $1 million is
used to- educate Florida's youth
about the dangers of tobacco use.
Factoring in inflation and increased
cost of advertising, $57 million
appears to be both reasonable and
fiscally responsible.
Against: Everyone agrees kids
should not smoke. However, the
$57 million a year will be coming
out of our state's general revenue
budget, which means less money
for schools and roads. Technically,
this proposed amendment could
be achieved through the legislature
instead of the Constitution.
WhatYour Vote Means
YES If approved by voters,
Amendment #4 would require that
15 percent ($57 million) of the 2005
tobacco settlement payments to
Florida would fund a statewide
tobacco education and prevention
No If Amendment #4 is not
approved by voters. Florida would
continue to receive allocations as
set by the Legislature and approved
by the Governor. Current alloca-
tions are set at 1 percent of the
tobacco settlement money.
Official financial impact state-
mentto appear on the ballot:
This amendment requires state
government to appropriate approx -
imately $57 million in 2007 for the
comprehensive Statewide Tobacco
Education and Prevention Pro-
gram. Thereafter, this amount \\ill
increase annually ,%ith inflation.
This spending is expected to reduce
tobacco consumption. As a result,
some long-term savings to state
and local government health and
insurance programs are probable,
but indeterminate. Also, minor rev-
enue loss to state government is
probable, but indeterminate.
Additional financial effects
based on the financial impact esti-
mating conference's research &
Education, prevention and
enforcement costs will increase.
The state will be required to appro-
priate approximately $57 million
from Tobacco Settlement funds in
2007, which will be adjusted annu-
ally for inflation. Because the
Tobacco Settlement funds are cur-
rently fully obligated, the require-
ment to spend these dollars on the
specified programs will result in
reductions to existing programs or
the replacement of those dollars
with $57 million of other state
Some long-term savings to
state and local government health
and insurance programs is proba-
ble. The Comprehensive Statewide
Tobacco Education and Prevention
Program, is expected to reduce
tobacco consumption. Because of
this, state and local governments
that offer health and insurance pro-
grams will probably experience
some long-term savings. However,
the savings resulting from the pre-

vention program are indetermi-
nate. Many factors besides the pre-
vention program contribute to the
decline of tobacco use. In addition,
the number of persons, particularly
youth, who will stop using tobacco,
for how long they will stop, or who
will never use tobacco is unknown.
Minor loss of revenue to the
state is probable, but is indetermi-
nate. Revenue to the state from the
Tobacco Settlement payments and
from the Cigarette and Other
Tobacco Products Taxes are
dependent in part on tobacco sales.
The statewide campaign proposed
by the constitutional amendment is
expected to reduce consumption
by some unknown .amount. Many
other factors may also contribute to
the decline of tobacco use, includ-
ing affected opinions about tobac-
co companies following the multi-
state settlements, increasing cost of
cigarettes, increasing tax rates on
tobacco products, and the imple-.
mentation of smoking regulations
in public places. Consequently,
minor loss ol revenue is probable.
but the amount attributable to the
prevention program cannot be

Amendment 6
Official Title: Increased Home-
stead Exemption
Official ballot summary Propos-
ing amendment of the State Consti-
tution to increase the maximum
additional homestead exemption
for low-income seniors from
$25,000 to $50,000 and to schedule
the amendment to lake effect Jan.1,

Amendment Type:
Legislative/Joint Resolution, this
amendment was placed on the bal-
lot by the Florida Legislature during
the 2006 Legislative Session. It was
required to pass both the Senate
and House by a 60 percent vote to
be eligible for the ballot.
Sponsor: Florida Legislature,
(2006 Session), Rep. Carlos Lopez-
Cantera (R-Miami)
Known proponents: Unknown
Known opponents: Unknown

For: Low-income seniors are
vulnerable to sudden increases in
property tax assessments, because
many live on fixed incomes and
simply, can't 'keep pace with
increasing property taxes. This
amendment will authorize the Leg-
islature to allow local government
to ease tax burdens on those who
are most affected by higher proper-.
ty taxes.

Against: Property taxes generate
a major source of revenue for local
government. .Reducing property
taxes could financially devastate
counties resulting in massive tax
increases to cover revenue needs
for schools and other local priori-
ties. Therefore, reducing property
the tax burden on owners could
result in a shift of tax burdens from
the homestead property owner to
other taxpayers.
WhatYourVote Means
Yes: If approved by voters,
Amendment #6 would authorize
the Legislature to allow counties to
increase the maximum additional
homestead exerription for low-
income seniors from $25,000 to
$50,000 effective Jan. 1, 2007. Local
counties have an existing option of
adding an additional $25,000, there-
fore, a low-income senior could
receive an exemption from proper-
ty taxes as high as $75,000. Low-
income seniors are defined as
those 65 years old or above with a
household income that foes not
exceed $20,000.
No: If Amendment #6 is not
approved by voters, homestead
exemptions would remain as cur-

rently listed in the Constitution:
$25,000 homestead exemp-
tion to all owners of "homestead"
Allows local governments the
option of offering an additional
exemption to low-income seniors
of up to $25,000 (established in
1982). Low-income seniors are
defined as those 65 years old or
above with a household income
that does not exceed $20,000
Financial impact: There is not a
direct financial impact on state gov-
ernment. If all counties were to fully
implement the increased exemp-
tion and millage rates remain the
same, it could have an impact of
negative $36 million to local rev-
Note: The Financial Impact Esti-
mating Conference is not required
to adopt and prepare official finan-
cial impact statements to accompa-

ments \\lhi(ch are placed orn the

Red Cross seeks sponsors and motorcyclist

Polk and Highlands Counties,
FL The American Red Cross
Polk County Chapter and High-
lands County Service Center
have begun gathering riders and
sponsors for this year's fall
motorcycle poker run.
The Fun Bike Center Ride for
the Red to benefit the American
Red Cross of Polk County will
mount up at 10 a.m. Saturday,
Nov. 18, in two locations with
two motorcycle packs. One
pack will leave from the Circle in
Sebring. Another will leave from
Central Park in Winter Haven,
the site of the original ride. Rid-
ers will have their choices of
eight stops four in Highlands
County and four in Polk County
- to end at the Winter Haven
Bikefest at 5 p.m. For those who
haven't pre-registered, registra-
tion begins at 8:30 a.m. at the
two locations.
Linda Scialo, Emergency Ser-
vices Director for the Polk Coun-
ty Chapter, organized the origi-
nal Ride for the Red and was
thrilled to have Fun Bike Center
agree to be title sponsor for this
year's event. Not only was Fun
Bike Center in Lakeland an origi-
nal stop and sponsor from the
inaugural Ride for the Red in
Polk County, Scialo and several

members of her family pur-
chased their motorcycles from
Fun Bike Center and met many
of their riding friends two years
ago through rides sponsored by
Fun 3ike Center.
Highlands County Service
Center Director Art Harriman
first learned of the ride last fall,
he and Scialo immediately
began discussing plans for a
dual event, giving avid motorcy-
clists in Highlands County-who
showed tremendous support for
the American Red Cross during
the last two years a chance to
have fun in a family-oriented
event. Harriman looks forward
to having this ride on a regular
basis every year, and is so excit-
ed about the ride, he's joked
about getting a motorcycle and
training to do the ride himself.
Prospective riders from both
counties are welcomed to stop
by Fun Bike Center in Lakeland
and see a 2006 Kawasaki Vulcan
Classic 1500, to be given away in
a chance drawing after the ride.
So far, stops include Fun Bike
Center as title sponsor and

PCC celebrates Fallfest Oct. 21

Fallfest. The word conjures up
a cool autumn day on Polk Com-
munity College's Winter Haven
campus filled with happy fami-
lies participating in a variety of
activities. Thou-sands and thou-
sands of area residents trek to the
campus each October to, enjoy
the event. This year PCC's
Fallfest, which will be held Satur-
day, Oct. 21 from 9 am to 4 pm,
will celebrate its 20th anniver-
"Who would have dreamt
that this event would have grown
to this size?" asked Tom Dowl-
ing, Chair of the Fallfest Commit-
tee. "I remember the first year
there were 30 or so craft booths
setup around the center of the
campus and the people attend-
ing the fund raiser consisted
mostly of faculty and staff from
During the two decades the
family event has grown and
expanded adding ne\\ exhibits
here or there. This year Fallfest
will feature: Hundreds of Home-
made Crafts, a Kids Zone, music
by PCC groups and area profes-
sional entertainers, a Haunted
House, La Sertdma's Pumlpkin
Patch, Police and EMS exhibits
and all kinds of food and snacks.
"Today, we have over 160
crafts booths fanning out in all
directions on' our Winter Haven
campus. As Fallfest hal grown so
has our, attendance," Dowling
said. "During the last couple of
years some 12,000 people turned
out for this family festival.
"We've been so successful that.
one of our major challenges has
been to make sure everyone has
a place to park." To handle all the
tremendous attendance, grassy
areas on campus have been
turned into temporary parking
"When you, talk to people

about Fallfest they each have
their favorite area," said "For me
and many others Fallfest would-
n't be Fallfest without the hun-
dreds of handmade crafts on dis-
play. The craft show is the
backbone of Fallfest."
Fundraiser: Fallfest is a fund
raiser with proceeds going to var-
ious student organizations and to
the PCC Foundation. The PCC
Foundation financially supports
PCC's educational mission in
many ways including establish-
ing scholarships and purchasing
equipment. The fees from the
craft booths and other sales go to
the PCC Foundation.
Kids Zone: One area of the
campus will be transformed into
the Kids Zone complete with
LaSertoma's Pumpkin Patch. The
Kids Zone also features magic
shows and balloon art by Luis
Campanerfa hands-on activities
and face painting. A big hit every
year is the Haunted House. Once
again,. the" Physical Therapist
Assistant students will be con-
verting their classroom into a
spooky place full of ghosts and
Food: Tables will be setup in
the center of the Winter Haven
campus. There PCC's various
athletic teams will sell hot dogs,
hamburgers, and soft drinks.
There will also be popcorn, cot-
ton candy and other snacks sold
by various student organizations.
Music: Fallfest Visitors can sit
under the oaks and listen to
PCC's many talented musical
groups: The PCC Concert Choir,
The PCC Jazz,Band, Over 55
Show Band, The PCC Chorus.
Also taking Ihe outdoor stage this
year will professional groups:
Roger Hew ill's Octet, The Al
Moore Quintet and a Taste of
Country with J. C. Anderson &
Company. ,

Arts: Visitors can also stroll to
the Fine Arts Gallery and admire
the decorative quilt show and
watch a quilt being made or visit
a PCC a classroom and admire
the student work.
EMS and Police: In another
area, PCC's Emergency Medical
Services (EMS) program will
stage their Team Day. Paramedic
,students will encounter a simu-
lated crash scene and will be test-
ed on their emergency response
skills. Other vehicles and demos
from various fire and EMS agen-
cies will also be featured at this
area of Fallfest. Nearby, various
police agencies will be on hand
with a variety of demonstrations
including Police vehicles and a
Handmade Crafts: Spread
throughout the campus will be
over 160 craft booths selling
country crafts, wood working,
clothing, glass works and much
more. "Where ever you .'look
around campus you see these
wonderful handmade items on
display," Dowling explained. "I
marvel at these fine crafters, who
come in the early morning and
setup their beautiful creations.
Crafters have been most kind
with their praise and many say
they were attracted to Fallfest by
its reputation. For the past sever-
al years 90% of our crafters have
rated PCC Faiifest as excellent!
"We always strive for excel-
lence at PCC whether it's in the
classroom or in'our service to the
community," Dowling contin-
ued. "it's the cooperative people
at PCC and participating groups
that are responsible for Fallfest's
great reputation."

ing a long 35-yard pass to Tyler
Batts to put the Warriors.on the
Hornet 10-yard line for a first
down. Tubbs' pass setup senior
defensive back Ryan McNally for a
15-yard field goal and a 17-3 War-
rior lead to end the half.

ed with Smith for the second time

back Ken Johnson, which was
forced by sophomore defensive
lineman Rondell Joyner, at the

it for a touchdown. With 37 sec-
onds left in the quarter, JaMarcus
Watkins intercepted a Timothy
King pass in the Warrior end zone

and returned in for 100 yards and

nated the quarter, scoring 21
