Early Voting Numbers Show Steady Voting in the Glades

just shy of 500 voters had turned out to cast
their votes through ,i, ,-,i._: in Western Palm

Perhaps the first indication that not every
thing was going to go as planned with a highly
anticipated boat racing event in Pahokee, was the
masked man who brandished a knife and scared
race participants and volunteers from last week
end's event.
Concerns that manatees in the lake could be
harmed from the high-speed vessels that were
planned to take the waters on Lake Okeechobee
nearly shut down the event before it happened,
until a last-minute arrangement involving a heli-
copter flying to search for possible animals in the
water was made.
Still, not everyone was happy with the safety

race for District 6, choosing between incumbent
Democrat Jess Santamaria, Republican candidate
John E. Carroll Sr. and Andrew Schaller, no party
affiliation.
Jess Santamaria defeated local candidate Mi-
chael Jackson in the August Primary Election,
grabbing 62 percent of the vote in the district. Mr.
Jackson had served as Santamaria's liaison and
had announced his desire to run earlier this year,
not able to beat his former employer in the race.


In the race for the school board, District 6,

The Palm Beach Post and


The Town-Crier Newspaper

are the two newspapers who are most familiar with Jess Santamaria's business and community activities over the
past 30 years. They have consistently endorsed Jess for the Palm Beach County Commission in 2006 and his
re-election in 2010 for both the primary and general elections:


The Palm Beach Post July 31, 2010
Primary Election Endorsement
Santamaria: Promises kept
"Commissioner Santamaria is one of the few on the board who
routinely criticizes developer giveaways. He was among the first to
urge his colleagues to adopt strong ethics rules, and pushed to assure
independence of the new inspector general. Commissioner
Santamaria promised when he ran for Tony Masilotti's old seat to
stress ethics and transparency and he has kept those promises."


The Town-Crier August 13, 2010
The Town-Crier Endorses Jess
in the Primary Elections
"Four years ago, the Town-Crier strongly supported the election of
Jess Santamaria because we believed he would bring a unique,
absolutely incorruptible point of view to the Palm Beach County
Commission. Now that four years have passed, like his style or dislike
his style, that has been the case. It is because of the work of
Santamaria that Palm Beach County is on the verge of having the
ethics rules, regulations and enforcement mechanisms to finally
begin to clean the stain of corruption that has hung over county
government for far too long. From time to time, there have been
individual issues with which we disagree, but overall Santamaria is
exactly as he appears to be a principled man who puts the people
above party, special interests and developers. If the county
commission were made up entirely of people like Santamaria, we
would most likely have a far more honest and transparent
government."


The Palm Beach Post October 9, 2010
Once Again, The Palm Beach Post
Endorses Jess Santamaria For The
November 2nd General Election
"During his one term, District 6 incumbent Jess Santamaria, a
Democrat, has annoyed other commissioners by criticizing a lack of
decorum and pushing for tougher anti-corruption rules. Their
annoyance reflects well on him. He has been a reliable vote on
protecting the environment. He records interviews with developers,
and refuses campaign money from the construction and real estate
industries."


The Town-Crier October 22, 2010
Keep Jess Santamaria On The
Palm Beach Commission
Because of everything the county has been through over the past
decade, the commission needs an extremely independent,
exceedingly ethical viewpoint, and if there's one person who has
proven to be just that, it's Jess Santamaria. The Town-Crier
strongly endorses the re-election of Jess Santamaria for Palm Beach
County Commission in District 6.

OTHER ENDORSEMENTS:
* Florida Alliance of Retired Americans
* Voters' Coalition
* Sierra Club (Environmentalists)
* South Florida 912 Principles Not Parties "We support his drive against corruption"
* Professional Firefighters/Paramedics of PB County

IJESS SANTAMARIA


NDORS
STATE SENATOR DAVE ARONBERG "Jess is a
different kind of elected official that we have all been
searching for. He is definitely different because he is all
about good government and ethics. He is not afraid to
step on toes. He fights for us against the old ways of
doing business. He's the same guy I have known for 8
years he has not changed one bit. That's why we are all
glad he has decided to serve four more years. The days
of corruption in Palm Beach County will soon be over
with Jess."


IENTS
KEN ADAMS (Former County Commissioner and
Prominent Business Man) "I have known Jess for
about 30 years. He's got exactly what Palm Beach
County needs to regain public trust in government. He
is a man with incredible character, unlike anyone
I've ever known in Government! Jess brings a talent
and a capability you can't buy for any kind of money.
We are fortunate that Jess and his family are willing to
give us another four years."

Voters To Consider Amendments To State Constitution


BY KATRINA ELSKEN
INI Florida
When Florida voters go to the polls on Nov. 2,
they will decide the fate of six amendments that
are proposed to the state's constitution.
Amendment #1: Repeal of
Public Financing Requirement
Ballot Summary: Proposing the repeal of
the provision in the State Constitution that re-
quires public financing of campaigns for elective
statewide office who agree to campaign spending
limits.
Sponsor: The Florida Legislature
Background: In 1987, the Florida Legislature
established public financing for those running for
statewide election. In 1998, it was placed on the
ballot as a constitutional amendment and was ap-
proved by 64 percent of the Florida voters.
In 2005 the Legislature voted to triple the
amount of campaign funding candidates could
raise and still qualify for state funding.
In 2010, a candidate for governor could raise
$24.9 million and still qualify for public funding.
In the last election, candidates for governor
and the four Cabinet offices received a total of $11
million in public funding.
This year, the Florida Legislature decided to
put the question to the voters.
A "yes" vote on Amendment #1 would repeal
the public financing system and put a stop to us-
ing tax dollars to help fund campaigns.
A "no" vote would keep the current public fi-
nancing system in place.
Those in favor of public financing argue that it
is too expensive to run for public office and that
without public financing only millionaires can af
ford to run for office. They also say without the
availability public funding, incumbents have an
unfair advantage.
Those against public financing argue that
Florida tax payers can't afford to give millions
of dollars to political campaigns, and that most
Florida candidates have been successful in raising
enough money for their campaigns even without
the public funds. They also point out that the in-
crease in the amount candidates are allowed to
raise and still receive public funding defeats the
original intent of the public funding plan.
Most states do not provide public financing for
candidates. For state office Florida is one of ten

"This honor reflects the commitment of the
entire South Florida Water Management District
to restore the Everglades and, most notably, rec-
ognizes the successful acquisition of 42 square
miles of agricultural land to improve water quality
and the environment in the River of Grass," said
SFWMD Governing Board Chairman Eric Buer-
mann. "An occasion such as this also serves as
a reminder to Ms. Estenoz and me that we must
build on the successes and continue moving for-
ward with new ideas to meet the complex chal-
lenges of Everglades restoration."

The Skinny on the Scary
BY PASTOR JOHN HICKS
First United Methodist Church
Someone shared that being a Christian is
like being a pumpkin. "God picks you
from the patch, brings you in, and wash-
es all the dirt off of you. Then He cuts off the top
and scoops out all the yucky stuff. He removes
the seeds of doubt, hate, greed,
etc., and then He carves you a
new smiling face and puts His
light inside of you to shine for
the entire world to see."
In 1 Corinthians 9:22-23,
the Apostle Paul states, "To the
weak I became weak, to win the
weak. I have become all things
to all men so that by all possible -,
means I might save some. I do
all this for the sake of the gos-
pel, that I may share in its bless-
ings."
In other words, Paul is stat
ing that he tries to find common ,
ground with those around him
so that he might share Christ with Pastor.
them.
My purpose in this article isn't to make a
statement about how you should or shouldn't
feel about Halloween, rather to encourage us all
to find "common ground" with unbelievers and
use October 31 as a way to help bring people to
Christ.
God calls us to be faithful and to make a dif
ference. We don't have to do great things. Little
things we do can make a big impact. There are
times in our lives when we have opportunities to


J<


reach out and touch people in a special way. Hal-
Celebrating 'Halloween'


loween can be one such opportunity.
One of the biggest problems we face is that
Halloween today has become strongly associ-
ated with the occult and a preoccupation with
the dead-two influences that Scripture and the
church have always warned against. That's the
skinny on the scary, which makes it even more
important for us to shine in the midst of the dark-
ness that surrounds us. So,
how can we use this odd cel-
ebration to introduce people
to the Savior?
There was a man in the
neighborhood where I grew
up who made snow cones
every Halloween for all of
us trick- or-treaters. I remem-
ber him. More than that, I
remember how special he
made each of us feel.
It inspired within me a
desire to one day, if at all
possible, to do what he
did to make and hand out
snow cones on Halloween
ohn Hicks -- to make good memories by
touching the hearts of children
and youth in special ways.
As kids come to your door, let them see His
light in you. Don't give in to the world, but be in
the world with your light shining.
Don't hide it under a bushel, but hold it up to
the world as a living witness for our living God.
It is the combined wattage of many lights, each
shining in its own place but for a common pur
pose, that illuminates a city in the midst of the
darkness of night.


BY REV. SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+
Saint Martin's Church
I saw an article about the "evils" of Hallow-
een recently and the efforts to discourage
people from celebrating it. Judging by the
tenor of the article, the author seemed to have his
mind made up that it was evil before he sat down
to write about it. That's a poor
wayof going i..1 ,ii ii;.. Early
in Church history, long before
Churches were sectarian, the
one Church that was carrying
on the teachings and traditions
of Jesus remembered their he- \
roes or "saints." Like all people
do, they would remember them
on anniversaries of their birth of
death, and they served as exam-
ples to the world by their good
works and deeds. Some were
Biblical and others came after
the New Testament era.
They gave people models for
fashioning their lives and kept
the faith alive during some very Rev. Sam T
dark times in world history. Today,
we do something similar when we celebrate our
presidents, founding fathers, great figures that
have given us a heritage of freedom or have led us
against those who would threaten our way of life.
Calendars can become quite full; and sometimes
we wonder if we gave people enough credit for
what they did to make our life better. So too in the
early Church. After remembering all of the heroes
of the faith, the Church leaders felt it would be
appropriate to have a special time to remember


I
h


"All Saints" or all of the holy ones.
The language of the day spoke of the "hal-
lowed" or "holy" ones and the day was known
as "All Hallows Day" that came to be set aside to
remember them all. It was a time to remember
that God's saints would be victorious and win
over the devil and forces of evil that attempted
to do the world harm. It was a victory celebra-
tion for Christians; they recalled the triumph God
had promised and victory that
would come with the return
. .of His Son at the end of time;
that the victory had begun
and God's purpose would be
Accomplished.
The forces of evil knew
this too, and they would have
one last rally to attempt to
do their worst; that was the
symbolism of it all. Their ral-
lying of all of the evil possible
would take place on the Eve
of All Hallow's Day; or All
Hallow's Even which became
shortened simply to "Hal
loween." Was the day evil?
omas, Ph.D+ Pagan? "Bad?" Not at all! It
came with the recognition that
God would ultimately be victo
rious and, as the hymn says "When the Saints
Come Marching In." The faithful would celebrate
the day by recognizing the forces of evil may have
their moment, but they will come to a swift end.
That ultimately is God's purpose and the belief of
the faithful. Halloween can be the dramatization
of the Christian message; evil may be present but
it will come to an end, God will finally be victor
ous and we will share eternity with Him. That's
not so bad after all!

FWC Biologist Honored


BY GABRIELLA B. FERRARO
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Recognized as one of the state's premier ex-
perts on Lake Okeechobee ecology, Donald Fox,
a biological administrator with the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC),
was named 2010 Fisheries Biologist of the Year
by the Southeastern Association of Fish and
Wildlife Agencies. Fox, who has been with the
FWC for nearly 30 years, received the honor last
Tuesday at the association's annual conference in
Biloxi, Mississippi.
"The FWC has given me the opportunity to
pursue a career in natural resource manage-
ment, a responsibility that I approach with love
and passion," said Fox. "Working in the Kissim-
mee River/Lake ( 'I.. iI .1.. I -. i..-l .I. system
is challenging, but also extremely rewarding. I
am deeply honored to be recognized by SEAF
WA, for I believe there is no greater honor than
to be recognized by one's peers."
As a biological administrator for the FWC's
Division of Habitat and Species Conservation,
Fox manages the habitats supported by Lake
Okeechobee, the second largest freshwater lake
in the country. The lake and its associated marsh
and open water habitats are home to rich and
dynamic fish and wildlife species, some of which
are listed as threatened and endangered.
Additionally, the lake provides many recre-
ational and commercial opportunities, including
fishing, ... ii... wildlife viewing and duck hunt
ing. These activities generate significant revenue
to the state and local economy.
In recent years, Fox has led efforts to design
and implement multi million-dollar habitat-en-
hancement projects benefitting Okeechobee's
fish and wildlife.
Fox has worked closely with the FWC's part-
ners to make substantial scientific contributions
to the understanding of the lake's ecology and its
conservation needs. The lake, once a rapidly de-
grading aquatic ecosystem, is slowly recovering.
Tim Breault, director of the FWC's Division of


Donald Fox


Habitat and Species Conservation, said, "We are
extremely proud of Don and the fact that he has
been recognized by his fellow professionals in the
Southeast for his commitment and contributions
to Lake Okeechobee restoration.
Our citizens and visitors are enjoying a health-
ier, cleaner lake today, and this is largely due to
Don's dedication and diligence in managing the
fragile Lake Okeechobee ecosystem."


AT&T Gives Fisherman
More Coverage on the Lake

BY KELLY LAYNE STARLING
AT&T South & West Florida Markets
AT&T customers who go fishing and boating
on Lake Okeechobee, and commute from Paho-
kee to Indiantown and Okeechobee now have
more mobile broadband coverage.
AT&T today announced it has activated a new
3G cell site on S.R. 98 in Canal Point in western
Palm Beach County as part of its continuing net-
work investment to support growing demand for
advanced mobile devices and applications.
The new cell site is one part of AT&T's ongo
ing efforts to extend its mobile broadband wire-
less network the fastest in the nation, according
to expert, independent testing.
With mobile broadband speeds, AT&T cus-
tomers can surf the Web, download files faster,
and enjoy the very latest interactive mobile ap-


plications. AT&T continues to drive investment
and innovation to deliver the nation's best, most
advanced mobile broadband experience for cus-
tomers.
"Supporting mobile broadband growth is our
No. 1 investment priority," said Rich Guidotti, vice
president and general manager, AT&T Mobility &
Consumer Markets for South Florida. "This new
cell site is just one example of our efforts to in
crease network speed, capacity and coverage for
our customers."
The new Canal Point cell site is one of many
network upgrades AT&T has made in the South
Florida market in 2010 to enhance coverage and
capacity.
Since the start of the year, AT&T has activated
eight new cell sites in Palm Beach, St. Lucie, In-
dian River, Broward and Miami-Dade counties;
upgraded three sites in Palm Beach, Broward and
Miami Dade counties to 3G; and has added capac-
ity to approximately 50 cell sites in Palm Beach,
Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe counties.

Introducing Lake Okeechobee Fishing Report


The Season is Getting
Under Way

BY MARK KING

First let me introduce myself, I'm Capt. Mark
King from Clewiston and I will be writing a week
ly fishing report for Lake Okeechobee. I'm a full
time guide working out of world famous Roland
Martin's Marina and Resort in Clewiston Florida
and I also guide during tarpon season out of
Marathon in the Florida Keys. My weekly fishing
report will focus on bass, bluegill, and crappie on
Lake Okeechobee and will include any tourna-
ment results. I will focus on fishing live bait, artifi-
cial lures, and fly fishing on the Big "O".
The lake has been producing some really nice
bass the past couple weeks and with the full moon
on us there is a good number of bass spawning in
the shallows even this early in the fall. My clients
and I have been catching bass from Long Point all
the way up to the Monkey Box with areas like the
East Wall, West Wall, and the Shoal all producing
some really nice bass.
There have been bass in the rim canal and
dynamite holes when the wind is blowing too
hard to fish out on the main lake, but they are
a little smaller in size compared to the bass that
are moving in to the spawning areas close to the
main lake. I try to fish the outside grass line close
est to the main lake as long as the wind will allow
me to do this.
Artificial lures have been working really well


10 i.i mnie.:ic.:il si.:lf


the past week or two and of course if you like to
live bait fish the wild shiners just can't be beat.
For artificial lures I have been using the Gambler
Big EZ swim bait and Gambler Cane Toads in
the grass and for fishing in the dynamite holes
and rim canal a straight tailed worm rigged on a
shakey head jig has been producing a good num-
ber of bass for my clients.
If live bait is what you like to fish with than a
wild shiner fished under a cork bobber along the
outside grass line will produce some really nice
bass. The fishing will only get better as we head
into the winter months and the water continues
to cool off. The bass spawn on Lake Okeechobee
during the winter months and this is the best time
to catch a trophy largemouth bass, especially
around the full moon phase.
I just returned from the Florida Fly Fishing
Expo in Orlando and generated a lot of interest
in fly fishing for bass on Lake Okeechobee, the
word is out and I will be guiding a lot more fly
fishermen and women for bass and bluegill. Lake
Okeechobee is a hidden treasure that we have in
our back yard that people come from all over the
world to fish, we need to take care of and quit
polluting this magnificent lake. Take some time
and get out on the lake, take the kids fishing and
ni.. 11,. wildlife we have around Lake Okeecho-
bee. Until next week take time to take someone
fishing, good luck and tight lines.
Capt. Mark King is a full-time guide out
of world-famous Roland Martin's Marina
and Resort in Clewiston Florida. Give him

Around the Lake: Weekly Football Wrap Up


BY JUSTIN DIAZ
Special to INI


Glades Day
What's the best way to bounce
back from a disappointing loss? Beat
the next team senseless. Glades
Day's matchup last Friday was not
only heavily one sided; it also didn't
even make it past the first half.
With the score being 49-6 at
halftime, Berean Christian accepted
the loss and went home early. The
only Berean Christian touchdown
came from an 80-yard pass early in
the game; which at the time kept the
score even at 6-6.
Unfortunately for them, it would
be the last time they saw the end
zone that night. Gator's quarterback
Tanner Reddish was 8 of 14 with
147 yards and 3 touchdowns; each
to a different receiver: a 40 yard pass
to Mike Terrell, a 17 yard pass to


Clewiston
BY DAVID SANKEY

The Clewiston Tigers faced the
Lake Placid Dragons at Cane field
tonight.
Conditions were pretty windy but
both teams were excited for this im-
portant district game. In the district,
Clewiston was 1-1 before tonight's
match, and the Dragons were 1-2.
The Tigers controled the first
half of the game with over 200 rush-
ing yards and three rushing touch-
downs.
In the second half of the game,
the Dragons controlled the tempo of
the game with their passing attack.
While several passes were tipped,
only one was picked by the Tigers.


J.T. Thorton, and a 29-yard pass to
Steven Williams. Two short rushing
touchdowns by Walter Sandoval, a
37-yard rush by Eaton Spence, and
a 15-yard interception return for a
touchdown by Steven Williams was
enough to send Berean Christian to
the point of no return.
Needless to say, the win was
definitely needed to help them
move past that disappointing loss
the week before. The Gators will get
a chance to better their record this
week against Coach Walker's ex-
team King's Academy.

Glades Central
Glades Central didn't need a late
game rally to make it past their op-
ponent last week; considering the fi-
nal score was 53-0. The win silenced
anybody who had their doubts
about the Raiders after the previous
Friday's loss; but really, who doubts
the Raiders? Two of the touchdowns


The Dragons were able to control
the clock and made a good effort in
the second half to regain the lead.
An onside kick with just a couple
of seconds left in the game was the
last time the Dragons had a shot, but
Tyree Wilson fell on the ball to let
Andre Rios take a knee to end the
game.
This game was also Clewiston's
homecoming game. Lisa Walker
was crowned queen, and Labrena
Coleman was first runner up. The
Dragon's 22 Andre Wilson had 8
receptions for 87 yards. And 10 Al-
rick Gayle ran the ball 25 times for
98 yards. The Tiger's Andre Rios had
84 passing yards with a passing TD
and 113 rushing yards with a rush-
ing TD.

WI


came from the defense: a 37 yard
fumble recovery by Dominique Gib-
son and a 38-yard interception re-
turn by Don'Kevious Johnson.
More surprisingly, the Raiders'
defense held Boynton Beach to just
26 total yards of offense, and only
one first down throughout the entire
game. All of Boynton's five passes
were incomplete, other than a nice-
ly-thrown pass right into the hands
of Raiders' Don'Kevious Johnson.
With another easy win, the Raiders'
record advances to 7-1 as they look
to make it 8-1 when they host Sun-
coast at home next Friday.

Pahokee
Last Friday's 28-12 matchup
against Pine Crest marked the 5th
straight loss for the Pahokee Blue
Devils; but more importantly, elimi-
nated them from playoff contention.
For the first time since 2000, the
Blue Devils won't see any action in


the post season. Despite alternat-
ing quarterbacks in an attempt to
get something going, the Blue Dev-
ils were held to just 54 total yards
in the first half. It wasn't until the
third quarter, when Rashaun Croney
scored on a 29-yard keeper, that Pa-
hokee was able to put anything on
the board.
With a 2-5 record, and a 1-3 re-
cord in their division, it seems as
though everyone is on the hot seat.
Fans are desperately looking for
ways to bring back a program that
they feel is going down the drain.
However, the coaching staff is
the same staff that has taken teams
to state championships multiple
times; and the fact that the majority
of the team consists of underclass-
man has proved to be of no help.
Not only are the Blue Devils fighting
with the losses as they host Palm
Beach Lakes this Friday; they're also
fighting fan pressure as well.

Glades Day Holds Another


Successful Fall Festival


BY ELISE GAVIRIA

This past weekend on Saturday, October 23
the Fall Festival was held at the school. It was a
long, busy, fun filled day. First it started off with
the Costume Parade which took place at 5 p.m.
The parade consisted of four categories; Best
Characters, Best Halloween, Best Group and
Best Visitors.
Students in grades pre-kindergarten through
sixth grade are eligible to compete along with
visitors. All the outfits were quite the sight to see.
The winners were first grader Audree Aschman
for Best Character, who dressed up as a pirate
princess in a ship named "The Pink Pearl" and
second grader Trey Sanford for Best Halloween,
who looked quite spooky in his Jason outfit.
The winner for Best Overall Visitor went to the
children of the Davis and Stein family who cre-
ated their very own pumpkin patch with a plat-
form with hay and scarecrows and three baby
pumpkins.
Finally the winner of Best Group went to Ad-
dison Aschman and Dean Congleton who had a
rolling bee hive complete with bees and a bee
keeper. As soon as the parade ended the evening
festivities began. Several booths were open from
delicious treats all the way to the hay dig in ex-
change for tickets.
Some of the other booths were the popcorn
booth, the hay ride, hairdos and tattoos, and the
bounce houses.
This year the eighth grade class put on a
Haunted House which was held in the old band


room. They were worked very hard to create what
many said was quite a frightening experience.
Some new additions to the festival were Rita's
Italian Ice booth and Bingo. Bingo was a huge
success! Numerous people played for the vari-
ety of prizes such as a Happy Heart Handbag, a
signed football, and several gift cards.
One long standing event that's been held over
the years was the big $8,000 raffle although in the
past it's been a raffle for a car. The prize this year
was actually split by the final two ticket holders.
The winners were Hannah Kate Lively and Rio
Bak Corporation.
There was also a raffle for an HD-TV 32"
which was won by Donna Lewis, the Apple iPad;
won by Kathy Miller, a shotgun; won by Charlie
Hollingsworth, a Coach handbag won by Chella
Martinez, and an Apple iPod Touch won by Tom
Schelecter.
It was a great time filled with food and fes-
tivities. Students are already anticipating the next
one.

Glade View Goes Pink
All faculty, staff, and students at Glade View Elementary were encouraged to wear pink symbolizing support in the fight against breast cancer. Each member
of the Eagle family wore stick-on butterflies with the fight against breast cancer pink ribbon in the center. Pink food items were sold and all proceeds were
donated to the Susan G. Komen for Breast Cancer Research Center as an effort to help eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease by advancing
research, education, screening and treatment. Students and faculty alike were extremely elated to participate in this great cause. This event was organized
and sponsored by the Glade View Student Council. For more information, contact Ruben Sariol at (561) 993-8831 or via e-mail at Ruben.Sariol@palmbeach.

Amendment Four Would Require Referendum Votes


BY KATRINA ELSKEN
INI Florida
When Florida voters go to the polls on Nov.
2, they will decide the fate of six amendments
that are proposed to the state's constitution. 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 before a
local government may adopt a new comprehen-
sive land use plan, the proposed plan or amend-
ment shall be subject to vote of the electors of
the local government by referendum, following
preparation by the local planning agency, con-
sideration by the governing body and notice. Pro-
vides definitions.
Financial Impact statement: This amend
ment's impact on local government expenditure


cannot be estimated precisely. Local govern-
ments will incur additional costs due to the re-
quirement to conduct referenda in order to adopt
comprehensive plans or amendments therein.
The amount of such costs depends upon the fre-
quency, timing and method of the referenda and
includes the cost of the ballot preparation, elec-
tion administration and associated expenses. The
impact on state government expenditures will be
insignificant.
Sponsor: Florida Hometown Democracy
Inc. PAC
Background: Amendment #4 is sponsored
by a political Action Committee, Florida Home-
town Democracy. President Lesley Blackner, a
Palm Beach land use attorney, claims that "mis-
managed growth destroys communities." Florida
Hometown Democracy claims that the amend-
ment will add another layer of protection against
unwanted and out of control development. Flori-
da 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 current system, proposed changes
to a city or county comprehensive plan are re-
viewed by the local planning commission, are
reviewed at public hearings, receive recommen-
dations from local government planning staff, are
reviewed by state agencies, and are 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 such proposed changes 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 comprehensive plan
changes. They say the proposed amendment will
give local residents more control over the growth.
Opponents to Amendment #4 say putting every
comprehensive plan change on a ballot could be
costly and confusing to the voters. They argue that
this could cause local governments to pay for nu-


merous special elections or else delay proposed
plan changes until the next scheduled election.
Floridians for Smarter Growth maintains the
amendment would hurt business development,
cause the state to lose even more jobs and further
depress Florida's economy. They call it the "vote
on ., .liii,._' amendment, and claim it would
cause costly delays to growth that the state needs
to recover from the current economic downturn.
According to state records, in fiscal year 2006,
there were 6,406 amendments to local compre-
hensive plans.
Supporters: Florida Hometown Democracy
Inc., The Sierra Club.
Opponents: Floridians for Smarter Growth,
The Florida League of Cities, the Florida Associa-
tion of Counties, the Florida Chamber of Com-
merce.

Amendments Five And Six Deal With Voting Districts


New district lines to be
drawn due to changes in
2010 Census

BY KATRINA ELSKEN
INI Florida
Amendment 5 and Amendment 6 both deal
with redistricting. Every 10 years, following the
Census, as required by the United States Constitu-
tion, the states redraw the voting district lines for
congressional, state house and senate districts to
reflect population changes and to ensure the dis-
tricts are roughly equal in population.
Proponents of Amendments 5 and 6 say the
current reapportionment procedures allow the
party in power to draw the districts to favor can-
didates in that political party. The State Legisla-
ture approves the redistricting plans, which has
historically led to district boundaries that favor
the incumbents from that political party. Drawing
voting district lines to favor a candidate or party is
referred to as "gerrymandering."
The term gerrymander was coined by the Bos-
ton Gazette newspaper in 1812. Governor Elbridge
Gerry approved a bill that redistricted Massachu-
setts to benefit his party. The district lines he ap-
proved created a voting district that reportedly re-
sembled the shape of a salamander. In later years,
such districts have sometimes been called "bug
splat" districts because they resembled the shape
of an insect splattered on a car windshield.
Historically, redistricting plans in Florida have
left the state with some odd shaped districts that
combine parts of communities with little in com-



















There's a wonderful world around us. Full of
fascinating places. Interesting people. Amazing
cultures. Important challenges. But sadly, our
kids are not getting the chance to learn about
their world. When surveys show that half of
America's youth cannot locate India or Iraq on
a map, then we have to wonder what they do
know about their world. That's why we created
MyWonderfulWorld.org. It's part of a free National
Geographic-led campaign to give your kids the

mon. For example, Florida State Senate district 27,
stretches in an odd shape across the state from
the east to west coast including pieces of Palm
Beach, Charlotte, Glades and Lee Counties and a
section of Lake Okeechobee.
Amendment 5 Ballot Summary: Legisla
tive districts or districting plans may not be drawn
to favor or disfavor an incumbent or political
party. Districts shall not be drawn to deny racial
or language minorities the equal opportunity to
participate in the political process and elect rep-
resentatives of their choice. Districts must be con-
tiguous. Unless otherwise required, districts must
be compact, as equal in population as feasible,
and where feasible must make use of existing
city, county and geographical boundaries.
Amendment 6 Ballot Summary: Congres
sional districts or districting plans may not be
drawn to favor or disfavor an incumbent or po-
litical party. Districts shall not be drawn to deny
racial or language minorities the equal opportu-
nity to participate in the political process and elect
representatives of their choice. Districts must be
contiguous. Unless otherwise required, districts
must be compact, as equal in population as feasi-
ble, and where feasible must make use of existing
city, county and geographical boundaries.
Proposed By: Fair Districts, Florida.


Supporters: Supporters of the plan say the
amendments would set nonpolitical standards for
redistricting, reduce gerrymandering or the draw-
ing of districts for political purposes and protect
the ability of r, ,in, r. ii. to participate in the
political process. The Florida League of Women
Voters, AARP, The Florida Education Association,
the Service Employees International Union, the
NAACP, Gov. Charlie Crist, former-Governor Bob
Graham, The Miami Herald, Florida Today, the
Tampa Tribune and the Palm Beach Post have all
endorsed Amendments 5 and 6.
The Miami Herald editorial board wrote, "Tak-
ing the rigging out of redistricting and reappor-
tionment would give voters real choices closer to
home come election time."
The Tampa Tribune editorial board wrote,
"The current system empowers politicians, not
voters. Approving the proposed standards would
bring order to the process ... a logical electoral
map that keeps neighborhoods 1I._. ii r could
reinvigorate a healthy election system where vot-
ers pick their politicians rather than the other way
around."
The Florida League of Women Voters stated
"Setting rules for redistricting has been a League
priority since 1982. The League supports single-
member election districts that are equal in popu-


lation, provide access for minorities, and when
possible, take local characteristics such as po-
litical and geographical boundaries into consid-
eration. The League strongly supports Amend-
ments 5 and 6."
Opponents: Opposition to Amendments 5
and 6 has primarily come from Florida Repub-
licans who are currently in office. Outspoken
opponents to the amendments include Repre-
sentative Corrine Brown (D- Jacksonville), Rep-
resentative Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Miami), Florida
House Majority Leader Adam Hasner, Dean Can-
non (R- Winter Park) and Senate President desig-
nate Mike Haridopolos, (R-Melbourne).
Those who oppose Amendments 5 and 6 say
the amendments' goals would be impossible to
meet. They also claim the amendments could
hurt minorities by eliminating minority access
districts which traditionally are not compact and
may not follow natural geographic boundaries.
Mr. Haridopolos has stated that passage of
Amendments 5 and 6 will be costly to the state
because they will increase the chance of legal
challenges to redistricting plans.

Amendment 8 Gives Some Flexibility To Class Size Rules


Revision of the Class Size
Requirements for Public
Schools

Ballot Summary: The Florida Constitution
currently limits the maximum number of stu-
dents assigned to each teacher in public school
classrooms in the following grade groupings: for
prekindergarten through grade 3, 18 students; for
grades 4 through 8, 22 students; and for grades
9 through 12, 22 students. Under this amend-
ment, the current limits on the maximum num-
ber of students assigned to each teacher in public
school classrooms would become limits on the
average number of students assigned per class to
each teacher, by specific grade grouping, in each
public school. The amendment also adopts new
limits on the maximum number of students as-
signed to each teacher in an individual classroom
as follows: for prekindergarten through grade 3,
21 students; for grades 4 through 8, 27 students;
and, for grades 9 through 12, 30 students. This
amendment specifies that class size limits do not
apply to virtual classes, requires the Legislature to
provide sufficient funds to maintain the average
number of students required by this amendment
and schedules these revisions to take place upon
approval by the electors of this state and to oper-
ate retroactively to the beginning of the 2010-2011
school year.
Background: In 2002, 52 percent of the Flor-
ida voters approved an amendment to the Florida
Constitution that set limits on the number of stu-
dents in core classes (such as Math, English and
Science) in the state's public schools. Beginning
with the 2010-2011 school year, the maximum
number of students in each core class would be:
18 students in prekindergarten through grade 3;
22 students in grades 4 through 8; and, 25 stu-
dents in grades 9 through 12.
In 2003, the Florida Legislature passed Senate
Bill 30-A that required the schools to phase in the
new class limits. Schools were ordered to reduce
the number of students in each classroom by at
least two students per year until the maximum
number of students per classroom did not exceed
the requirements in law. The school districts were
given until this year (the 2010-2011 school year)
to bring the classroom sizes down to meet the
new rules.
In 2010, the Florida Legislature approved a
constitutional amendment to be placed on the
ballot that will ask voters to change the state
constitution's current maximum class sizes to

"school-wide average class sizes." If the amend-
ment is passed, the class size would be calcu-
lated based on the school-wide average of the
number of students in core classes. In addition,
largest number of students in any individual class
could not exceed: 21 students in prekindergarten
through grade 3; 27 students in grades 4 through
8; and 30 students in grades 9 through 12.
The proposed amendment would give the
school systems a little more leeway in meeting
the class size requirements. They could get by
with adding three to five additional students to an
individual class, so long as the school average for
that subject in that grade met the state class size
requirements.
Supporters of this proposal say it will give the
school system's much-needed breathing room.
While they agree that small classes are good for
the students and the teachers, they argue that the
current economic conditions make it cost-pro-
hibitive to build more classrooms and hire more
teachers if there is one student over the limit.
Opponents on this proposal say smaller class
sizes are good for the students. They maintain
the people of Florida voted on this in 2002 and it
should not be changed. The Florida Educations
Association, the largest teachers' union in Florida,
filed a lawsuit in July, challenging the wording of
the amendment, which they say is "both cloudy
and misleading." FE ii,.... ,-,._.-. i thatallow-
ing larger classrooms also allows the Legislature
to escape the funding obligation that was part of
the original class size amendment.
The Florida Supreme Court has ruled that
Amendment 8 can stay on the ballot.
According to Florida TaxWatch's Center for
Educational Performance and Accountability,


Amendment 8 would save billions of dollars for
Florida taxpayers. According to TaxWatch, if
Amendment 8 does not pass, school taxes will
increase on average about 26 percent per house-
hold over the next ten years.
An organization that opposes the amendment
"Vote No on 8" disputes TaxWatch's estimates.
"Vote No on 8" maintains the amendment would
cut school funding with no guarantee the taxpay-
ers would see any tax relief. The state could sim-
ply funnel money that currently goes to schools
to other state programs. Opponents also point to
a Harvard University study "The Impact of a Uni-
versal Class-Size Reduction Policy: Evidence from
Florida's Statewide Mandate," which concluded
that class size had no clear impact upon student
achievement. However, the Florida Education As-


sociation questioned the results of the study. The
FEA said the research could have been flawed be-
cause an advisory committee chaired by former
Gov. Jeb Bush (who opposed the original class
size amendment in 2002) was involved.
Supporters of Amendment 8 include Com-
munity College Council of Presidents, the Florida
School Boards Association, Florida Association of
School Administrators and the Florida Chamber
of Commerce and gubernatorial candidates Rick
Scott and Alex Sink.
Florida Rep. Will Weatherford (R-Pasco Coun-
ty) said using an average is a common sense solu-
tion and could help some students. For example,
he said, under the current system, if a high school
student is hoping to get into an advanced place-
ment (AP) Math Class and the class already has
25 students, then the school can't let the student
into the class unless they hire another teacher.
With schools already struggling to stay within
their budgets, that student will have to settle for
a spot in a regular Math class that has an open
seat. With Amendment 8, the AP Math class could
have 26 students and another Math class at the
school could have 24 and the school would still
meet the average of 25 students.
Opponents include the Florida Educators As-
sociation, The Florida PTA, the NAACP and the
Florida Association for Child Care Management.
A message from the Florida PTA stated: "Pas-
sage of Amendment 8 will not help the children
of Florida. It will only relieve the legislature of its
obligation to ., .. i.. constitution."

Program To Aid Environment And Regatta


Cattle Industry Continued From Page 1


BY PETE GAWDA
Special to INI
The cattle industry will benefit from a pro-
gram designed to help the environment. That's
what Keith Fountain of the Nature Conservancy
told the Friday, Oct. 22 meeting of the County
Coalition for Responsible Management of Lake
Okeechobee, St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee
Estuaries and Lake Worth Lagoon. The organi-
zation, which met at the Okeechobee County
Courthouse, is made up of county commission-
ers representing Okeechobee, St. Lucie, Martin,
Lee, Palm Beach, Hendry, Glades, Highlands
and Osceola counties. Susan Sylvester, of South
Florida Water Management District (SFWMD),
told the coalition that so far, we have had "a
very, very dry October.
"The dry season has started early this year,"
she said. She discussed the decision tree that is
used to determine the level and duration of re-
leases for Lake Okeechobee. She said the salin-
ity level of the Caloosahatchee River is one of the
factors taken into consideration when making
these decisions.
"It is one of the most difficult decisions you
will have to make," Ms. Sylvester said of lake re-
leases.
"We need more storage," she said to hold
surplus water for drier times.
Dave Unsel of SFWMD then reported on
water quality. He said the present level of the
lake is about a half foot lower than this time last
year. He said that both total phosphorous and
total suspended solids in the lake have slightly
increased. However, he did have some good
news.
"Water clarity is very good on the lake."
He added that it has been a very good year for


submerged ,. .-.- i i. .... He said aquatic grasses
make a nursery ground for fish and fish attract
birds. Mr. Unsel said the district recently planted
13,000 bullrush plants on the northern end of
the lake near Limpkin Creek. He said this area
proved to be a great nursery ground for the bull
rushes which will be transplanted to other areas
of the lake.
He added that the same area would be a
good nursery for the apple snail. In the past
SFWMD has hatched apple snails and placed
them in shallow areas of the lake to attract the
snail kite which feeds on these snails. Mr. Unsel
said this has been an excellent year for snail kite
nesting.
He said there were a lot of complex and
lengthy plans for phosphorous reduction. He
mentioned Lakeside Ranch Storm water Treat-
ment Area (STA) at the edge of Okeechobee
County which will remove 20 metric tons phos-
phorous a year. He said the department of agri-
culture is working on owner Best Management
Practices. The prevailing philosophy has been
to take care of phosphorous in the northern
watershed first. However, Mr. Unsel said some
water managers are now thinking of dredging
phosphorous from the lake and possibly using
alum treatment. LTC Michael Kinard of the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers (COE) gave an update
on rehabilitation of the Herbert Hoover Dike. He
said the rehabilitation of three sections of Reach
1 on the eastern side of the lake have been com-
pleted.
The COE also filled in the toe ditch in the area
of Belle Glade to reduce seepage. Reaches 2 and
3 on the southern and eastern side of the lake
will be rehabilitated next. The COE has $104 bil-
lion tot spend on the dike this year.


of the manatees and a man donning the ill-
timed Halloween mask scared off a few of Jessica
O'Connor's, one of the event organizers, many
volunteers.
"Probably half of the volunteers ran for the
hills," said a frustrated Ms. O'Connor earlier this
week. "They were terrified that this guy was going
to hurt them."
It all went downhill from there, Ms. O'Connor
said, with the weather creeping in to make the
lake a dangerous proposition for high-speed rac-
ers, and generators giving out right before the
event.
The organizer feels especially awful for all the
racing fans who sat through two days without an
actual boat race. Every time the racers deter-
mined to put on a show for the spectators took
to the lake, the winds picked up and the water's
became too choppy to safely navigate.
With most of the racers very close acquain-
tances of the event organizers, Ms. O'Connor
made the decision to keep the boats out of the
water to avoid putting anyone's life at risk.
Although Mother Nature can't be tamed, and
racers are used to events being rained out or can-
celed due to it, this event hurt more than others,
Jessica said.
"I just take it personal because I don't want
anyone to be upset or unhappy with the event,"
she said. With the backing of private businesses
in Pahokee, the marina and resort, the city itself,
and even Palm Beach County, Ms. O'Connor
couldn't help but feel badly that the event didn't

go as planned.
She may be the only one who feels that way.
What the event showed, others said, is the
resolve of Glades residents to come 1,. .i. i to
make the best of a situation that could have been
deemed a disaster.
According to local leaders, many of the spec-
tators who drove in from all areas of the United
States said they enjoyed their visit to Pahokee, the
warmth of its people and the fellowship that they
had when the decision was made to ground the
boats.
Spectators were allowed inside the pit to talk
to racers and learn more about the sport, and the
racers did what they could to make the best of it.
Already, fans are signaling that they would like
to return next year.
"I think everybody had a really nice time any
way," said Mayor J.P. Sasser, who showed up
both days of the event. "Of course you can't do
anything about the weather."
Even with all that went wrong, a lot of things
came 1, I.. i r. the mayor said.
"I can't wait to have them back next year,"
he said. "What we'll plan to do next year is have
more events taking place so if for some reason the
weather doesn't cooperate, at least there will be
some other things for people to participate in."
Ms. O'Connor remains open to the possibil-
ity of bringing the race back to Pahokee, if all of
the various parties that participated in this year's
event are willing to do so.
Maybe next time they'll have better luck with
the weather, she said.
"Monday morning when we woke up, the
lake was perfectly calm," she said. "It would have
made a beautiful day of racing."
