Amendment requires anti-smoking campaign


Editor's note: Florida voters
will be asked to decide on six
proposed amendments to the
Florida Constitution in Novem-

posed amendments is designed
to help our readers better under-
stand them before going to the
polls.

Were Paid Signature Gatherers
Used to Place This on the Ballot?
Yes, more than $1 million was
spent with California-based PCI
Consultants to pay professionals


to collect signatures.

Top Contributors: $1.5 Million
- American Cancer Society, Flori-
da 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 rea-
sonable and fiscally responsible.

AGAINST: Everyone agrees
kids should not smoke. However,
the $57 million year will be com-
ing out of our state's general rev-
enue budget, which means less
money for schools and roads.
Technically, this proposed
amendment could be achieved
through the legislature instead of
the Constitution.

WhatYourVote Means
YES If approved by voters,
Amendment #4 would require
that 15% ($57 million) of the 2005
tobacco settlement payments to
Florida would fund a statewide
tobacco education and preven-
tion program.

NO If Amendment #4 is not
approved by voters, Florida
would continue to receive alloca-
tions as set by the Legislature and
approved by the Governor. Cur-
rent allocations are set at 1% of
the tobacco settlement money.

Official Financial Impact State-
ment to Appear on the Ballot:
This amendment requires
state government to appropriate
approximately $57 million in 2007
for the comprehensive Statewide
Tobacco Education and Preven-
tion Program. Thereafter, this
amount will increase annually
with inflation. This spending is


expected to reduce tobacco con-
sumption. As a result, some long-
term savings to state and local
government health and insurance
programs are probable, but inde-
terminate. Also, minor revenue
loss to state government is proba-
ble, but indeterminate.

Additional Financial Effects
Based on the Financial Impact
Estimating Conference's
Research & Public Workshops:
Education, prevention and
enforcement costs will increase.
The state will be required to
appropriate approximately $57
million from Tobacco Settlement
funds in 2007, which will be
adjusted annually for inflation.
Because the Tobacco Settlement
funds are currently fully obligated,
the requirement 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 funds.
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 programs will probably
experience some long-term sav-
ings. However, the savings result-
ing from the prevention program
are indeterminate. Many factors
besides the prevention program
contribute to the decline of tobac-
co 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, including
affected opinions about tobacco
companies following the multi-
state settlements, increasing cost
of cigarettes, increasing tax rates
on tobacco products, and the
implementation of smoking regu-
lations in public places. Conse-
quently, minor loss of revenue is
probable, but the amount attrib-
utable to the prevention program
cannot be determined.
AMENDMENT 6
Official Title: Increased Home-
stead Exemption

Official Ballot Summary:
Proposing amendment of the
State Constitution to increase the
maximum additional homestead
exemption for low-income sen-
iors from $25,000 to $50,000 and
to schedule the amendment to
take effect January 1,2007.

Amendment Type: Legisla-
tive/Joint Resolution, this amend-
ment was placed on the ballot by
the Florida Legislature during the
2006 Legislative Session. It was
required to pass both the Senate
and House by a 60% vote to be eli-
gible for the ballot.
Sponsor: Florida Legislature,
(2006 Session),Rep. Carlos
Lopez-Cantera (R-Miami)

Known Proponents: Unknown

Known Opponents: Unknown

Arguments:
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 Legislature to allow
local government to potentially
ease tax burdens on those most
threatened by increasing property
taxes.

AGAINST: Property taxes gen-
erate 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 priorities. Therefore,
reducing property tax burden on
owners could result in a shift of
tax burdens from the homestead
property owner to other taxpay-
ers.

What Your Vote Means
YES -If approved by voters,
Amendment #6 would authorize
the Legislature to allow counties
to increase the maximum addi-
tional homestead exemption 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, therefore, a low-income
senior could receive an exemp-
tion from property taxes as high
as $75,000. Low-income seniors
are defined as those 65 years old
or above with a household
income that does 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"
properties
Allows local governments
the option of offering an addition-
al exemption to low-income sen-
iors 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
government. If all counties were
to fully implement the increased
exemption and millage rates
remain the same, it could have an
impact of negative $36 million to
local revenues.
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.

AMENDMENT 7
Official Title: Permanently Dis-
abled Veterans' Discount on
Homestead Ad Valorem Tax

Official Ballot Summary:
Proposing an amendment to the
State Constitution to provide a dis-
count from amount of ad valorem
tax on homestead of a partially or
totally permanently disabled vet-
eran who is age 65 or older who
was a Florida resident at the time
of entering military service,
whose disability was combat-
related, and who was honorably
discharged, to specify percentage
of the discount as equal to the
percentage of veteran's perma-
nent service-connected disability;
to specify qualification require-
ments for the discount; to author-
ize the Legislature to waive the


annual application requirement
'in subsequent years by general
law; and to specify that the provi-
sion takes effect Dec. 7, 2006, is
self-executing, and does not
require implementing legislation.

AmendmentType:
Legislative/Joint Resolution,
this amendment was placed on
the ballot by the Florida Legisla-
ture during the 2006 Legislative
Session. It was required to pass
both the Senate and House by a
60% vote to be eligible for the bal-
lot.

Sponsor:
Florida Legislature, (2006 Ses-
sion), Rep. Ray Sansom (Fort Wal-
ton Beach)

Arguments
FOR: This is a chance to give
thanks to veterans who were
wounded in combat serving our
country. The amendment would
provide substantial ad valorem or
"property tax" relief for Florida's
military veterans who have fought
in a foreign war. The proposed
amendment would ensure the,
exemption is in proportion to the
amount of disability a veteran
receives:

AGAINST: Every permanent
Florida resident who has legal title
to and resides on real property is
eligible for a homestead exemp-
tion of $25,000. Currently, dis-
abled veterans receive an addi-
tional $5,000 homestead
exemption. Rather than an
"across-the-board" exemption,
the proposed amendment would
create exemptions. of different
amounts for each veteran.

WhatYourVote Means
YES -If approved by voters,
Amendment #7 would lower
taxes for certain disabled veterans
by allowing them to take a dis-
count on their homestead proper-
ty tax equal in proportion to the
amount of disability as deter-


mined by the US. -Department of-
Veterans Affairs. (Effective Dec. 7,
2006).

NO -If Amendment #7 is not
approved by voters, the current
law which authorizes a $5,000
exemption for ex-servicemen
who are disabled to a degree of 10
percent or more as a result of
service in war would remain in
place.

Financial Impact: The Office of
Economic ,and Demographic
Research (EDR) has estimated
the fiscal impact to be $20.1 mil-
lion.
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. The Rev-
enue Estimating Conference has
estimated that the recurring fiscal
revenue to local governments will
be $1 million; it does not appear
to have an impact on local expen-
ditures.

Required Documentation for
Disable Veterans to qualify for
exemptions includes:
Proof of residency at time of
entering service;
Proof that injury was com-
bat-related;
Official letter from the U.S.
Dept. of Veteran's Affairs stating
that the percentage of the veter-
an's service-connected perma-
nent disability;.and,
Copy of the veteran's honor-
able discharge.

dren
The National Alliance for the
Mentally Ill (NAMI) of Polk
County will be presenting the

addresses childhood mental ill-
nesses and the impact they
have on a family.
To begin the seminar, a team

tor who is the mother of a child
with mental illness, a mental
health professional who is the
parent of a child with early
onset illness, a father of a child
who had early onset, and an
individual who was mentally ill
as a child, will tell their stories.
The four will share their lived
experiences. Those attending

engage in dialog about what
can be done to improve the
lives of children stricken by
brain disorders such as atten-
tion deficit disorder, ADHD,
depression, bipolar disorder,
anxiety disorders, obsessive
compulsive disorder, opposi-
tional defiance, schizophrenia
and others.'

tal health professionals: psychi-
atrist, Dr. Anne Tyson of Lake-
land; child psychologist, Dr.
Richard Marshall, professor of
psychology at the University of
South Florida, Lakeland branch

speakers will focus their presen-
tations on the school age child
and what parents and teachers
can do to work together in rec-
ognizing warning signs, under-
standing the child's behavior
and finding resources and sup-
port.

will be Lt. Brian Garrett from the
Polk County Sheriff's Depart-
ment.,.Lt. Garrett has been a

Some newspapers seem to take pleasure in the bad news. Not
us.


We do print "bad" news. (It IS newsworthy when things go
wrong, and citizens need to know about problems.)


Still, we give most of our attention to good news the kind you
clip and tape to your refrigerator door. (This isn't difficult. The
vast majority of what happens in our community IS good.)


How are we doing?

The Frostproof News, Thursday, November 2, 2006

Haunted House enjoyed by many!


The 1st annual Project Gradua-
tion Haunted House proved to be
a welcomed Halloween event as
folks were lined up Friday, Oct 27
and Saturday, Oct. 28 waiting for
opportunity to enter the spooky
asylum.
After brief planning for the
haunted house FHS students and
parents came together to pull off
a successful event with a lot of
screams and giggles from atten-
dees.
The haunted house was one of
many fundraisers planned by the


Project Graduation committee.
Other events held to raise money
for the Class of 2007 include
'Sponsor a FHS Senior' and a golf
tournament that was held Oct. 28.
Watch the Frostproof News for the
next upcoming Project Gradua-
tion event
Project Graduation is a coordi-
nated community effort, commit-
ted to keeping our graduating sen-
iors safe on graduation night with
an all-night chaperoned, drug and
alcohol free event. It is estimated


this all-night adventure will cost a
minimum of $100 per senior.
The Project Graduation Com-
mittee challenges everyone in the
community to sponsor a senior for
this event. Please contribute to
this worthy cause and accept the
challenge! If you would like to
sponsor a senior, contact Russ
Flood, or you may send donations
(along with a note about who you
are sponsoring) to Project Gradu-
ation, Post Office Box 1292, Frost-
proof, Fl 33843

Winter


Haven


Hospital


Launches


New


Partnership with UF/Shands Cancer Center


to Provide Cancer Care Services


inter Haven Hospital today
launches a new collabora-
ion \ith the University of
Florida Shands Cancer Center
(UFSCC) that w ill offer a full range of
cancer care services to residents of east
Polk County and the Ridge Corridor
communities.

The new\ initiative is pat of the
Hospital's long-tenr strategy to estab-
lish major areas of clinical excellence.
The strategy was launched in 2001
with the implementation of a health
services partnership between the
Hospital and UF that initially focused
on planning for expanded cardio\ ascu-
lar services, and a 2003 agreement
between the Hospital and Shands for
the administration of Winter Haven
Hospital's Emergency Department.
The agreement for the physician
staffing of the Hospital's Emergency
Department \as a major element in
securing the dramatic improvement in
Winter Haven Hospital's Emergency
Services.

Since then. Winter Haven Hospital has
continued to establish areas of clinical
excellence by:

* Striking an agreement in 2005
with the Ocala Heart Institute for
the provision of cardiovascular
surgical and anesthesia services at
the Bostick Heart Center.

* Securing designation by the Joint
Commission on Accreditation of
Healthcare Organizations
(JCAHO) as a Stroke Center of
Excellence.

* Winning national recognition for
Regency Medical Center. In June.
Regency \ as awarded the 2006
Premier Award for Quality for
Maternal and Neonatal Care. The
award recognized Regency for
achieving excellence in both qual-
ity of care and operational effi-
ciency.

* Launching an effort to pursue des-
ignation by the American Nurses
Credentialing Center (ANCC) as a
Magnet Hospital. This designation


is nadonall\ accepted as the "gold
standard" in nursing and patient
care excellence.
In addition. UFSCC has recently com-
pleted a physician needs analysis study
for the Hospital. For cancer care.
UFSCC "will provide clinical oversight
of all cancer cases at the Hospital.
allowing the application of the latest
clinical protocols. Complex cases will
be referred directly to the UFSCC
facilities in Gainesville.

"Year after year. we are able to report
to the community that we have made
great strides in providing access to the
world's most advanced health care
services. This new agreement with UF
for cancer care is yet again more evi-
dence of that." said Mark Bostick. out-
going chairman of the Winter Haven
Hospital Board of Trustees. "Through
this partnership, we will have access to
some of the best cancer care physi-
cians and clinicians in the world, and
we will be able to recruit additional
high-quality professionals to live and
work here in Winter Haven."

The University of Florida Shands
Cancer Center at Winter Haven
Hospital will offer a wide range of
diagnostic. treatment and after-care
services for all types of adult cancer. Its
comprehensive cancer program pro-
vides patients with the finest leading-
edge cancer prevention and treatment
while giving physicians and healthcare
professionals the tools and facilities to
do their best work.

Richard Straughn. incoming chairman
of the Hospital Board and chairman of
the NMid-Florida Medical Services
Foundation Board of Trustees, said:
"This is a historic development for our
Hospital and for our community. We
all know that there have been some
amazing advances in state-of-the-art
cancer care in recent years. This agree-
ment brings those advances to our
community as part of an outstanding
partnership between two fine institu-
tions.

Stratford May. M.D., Director,
UFSCC. said: "We are very pleased to
extend our relationship with Winter


Ha\ en Hospital. Our respective institu-
tions bring together the best aspects of
an academic setting of the Unixersityv
a teaching hospital and the real-\\orld
needs of a conununity hospital in
Winter Haven. I am convinced that
both Shands and Winter Haven
Hospital have been strengthened by
our relationship. I see only more good
things happening as a result of dus ne%\
partnership for cancer care."

Lance Anastasio. President and CEO
of Winter Haven Hospital, said: "'We
have come a long \%wa since we first
began our relationship \\ith the
University of Florida. Expanding our
capabilities in cancer care yet again
signifies our commitment to providing
our community with the best health
care services available."

Established in 1926. Winter Haven
Hospital serves as the major medical
center for east Polk and Highlands
counties and the U.S. Highway 27 /
Ridge Corridor. The 527-bed hospital
