WE ARE TORNADOES
Tornado positivity
taking over town
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Starke’s water tower will be sporting
a new look before long — the same
look already being worn by students,
staff and supporters of Bradford High
School.
The city commission has agreed
with the school that painting the
water tower would be a great way to
demonstrate the community’s support
for the high school and its students, so
once the money has been raised, the
tower will read “We are Tornadoes.”
You may have already seen the
slogan popping up on T-shirts
around town. And if you haven’t,
you will soon. Businesses and others
have enthusiastically embraced the
campaign, which is meant to restore
school spirit among the students, rally
the community around Bradford High
and return the school to the stature it
once held in local life.
“I’ve heard so many good things
about where Bradford was such a
long time ago,” said BHS Assistant
Principal Anthony McCallum. “I want
to get back to that. I heard the whole
community would shut down on
Friday nights for football games.”
The campaign got underway last
week with the distribution of “We
are Tornadoes” T-shirts — purchased
with a total of $5,000 donated by 15
sponsors — to every student. The
student body piled into the stadium for
a group portrait of their Tornado pride.
The school spirit campaign was born
out of the positive behavior support
program. PBS refers to the approach
of rewarding students for doing well
and not merely reserving attention for
those in need of discipline.
Assistant
Principal
Anthony
McCallum and his PBS team —
English teachers Beth Oody and
Lindley Adkins — attended a seminar
last spring, and that was where the
Bradford High’s We Are Tornadoes campaign kicked off with a school photo taken at the stadium.

Cummings wins school board seat
Other races TBD
this November
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
The big winner in Tuesday’s primary
election was Sheila Fayson Cummings who
was able to unseat School Board Member
Archie Kittles in District 1.
It was a close race separated by 24 votes, but
Cummings was able to pull 52 percent of the
518 votes cast.
The other big winner in Bradford may be

negotiate tax breaks in exchange for economic
development. Nearly 63 percent were in favor
of the referendum.
Other candidates still have obstacles to face,
including Republican Kenny Thompson who
won the right to run against Doyle Thomas in
November for the District 2 county commission
seat. Thompson easily won the support of his
party with almost 73 percent voting for him
over his opponent, Andy Norman.
There was no clear winner in the three-way
race for the District 5 school board seat. Voters
were nearly evenly split between candidates
Billy Rehberg and Randy Starling, with just
21 votes separating them. But it was Starling
who took those votes and will run against the
top vote-getter, Erica Mains Reddish, in the
November runoff. Reddish received almost 37
percent of the votes, but that was only 35 more
than votes than Starling.

Starke budget
includes money
for raise, capital
projects
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
For the first time anyone can remember, staff
presented the Starke City Commission with a balanced
first draft during its budget workshop Aug. 19.
In the proposed budget for 2014-15, everyone will
receive a 3 percent raise, which also hasn’t happened
for a number of years.
Water and sewer rates are also scheduled to increase
again.
The new budget — prepared by Alica McMillian
and John Thieman in the finance department — totals
$16.9 million, down from $17.2 million this year.
The pay increase was made possible by the $83,000
difference between anticipated revenue and planned
expenditures.
McMillian noted this is a cost of living adjustment,
not a merit raise, although the city has been working
to put a more consistent evaluation program in place
for employees.
The budget for utilities and roads is down, but
general government costs are up in 2015, most notably
for the police and fire departments.
City Clerk Ricky Thompson said everyone’s wish
list was included.
For the police department, that includes four more
new cars at an estimated cost of $84,000, plus the cost
of outfitting them.
Commissioner Tommy Chastain questioned Police
Chief Jeff Johnson about getting additional cars on
top of the six recently purchased. Johnson said this
purchase would eliminate his remaining 2003 and
2004 models.
The department must also pay $64,000 on the loan
for cars already purchased.
McMillian pointed out that car repair costs have
been cut in half and a request for computers was
eliminated.
The police budget is up from $1.35 million to
$1.55 million, and adding the grants that pay for two
employees to that brings the total to $1.61 million,
surpassing the high reached back in 2010. Johnson
said the only increase would be the cost of living
adjustment, but in reality, that accounts for less than
$23,000 of the budget increase.
The fire department also reached a high with its
request for $1.15 million. The budget includes $200,000
for a fire engine. Fire Chief Tom Rowe said the new
truck would feature a larger cab. The department
plans to surplus two vehicles to help purchase the new
engine. One is older and nearly beyond repair. The
other only transports two firefighters and is obsolete

initial ideas for the “We are
Tornadoes” campaign and all
that surrounds it were born.
“We are Tornadoes” is the
theme, and the motto, borrowed
from the football program, is “I
am a part of something bigger
than myself.”
“To be a part of something
bigger means a lot,” McCallum
said.
To help get that point across, a
little something has been added
to the tornado image appearing
on T-shirts and other promotional
items — a star. It represents each
student and their starring role in
the school’s success.
Achieving that success means
that students fulfill their threepart mission — to be respectful,
responsible and productive in all
that they do.
One of the diagrams created
by Adkins for the program
materials depicts a pyramid, and
the foundation of that pyramid is
the code of conduct. Resting on
that are the expectations, which
can change depending on what
students are engaged in at the
time. Regardless, students are
told what is expected of them
in every situation, and when
they fall short, it’s a matter of
revisiting those expectations.
PBS is not a program without
rules. Rather it is about teaching
and reteaching students what
is expected of them, giving
them goals to work toward and
rewards for reaching those goals.
It is about preventing problems
before they start. It is about
the individual, but also about
realizing that the individual is a
part of something bigger and has
a role to play that contributes to
the functioning of the whole.
“You’re creating a positive
atmosphere where the kids want
to come to school,” McCallum
said, talking about the favorable
reactions students had when
they came to campus and saw
the encouraging promotional
materials posted throughout the
hallways.
“At the end of the day you’ve
got to show them what it is, teach
them the expectations and then
praise them for what they are
doing,” he said.
The hope was that once the
community saw the school
coming together, then it too
would feel a tighter bond with
the school. The bond has already
begun to manifest.
“We’re selling shirts like
you couldn’t even imagine,”
McCallum said, of the remaining
We are Tornadoes tees. Proceeds
from the sale of the shirts go
back into supporting the positive
behavior support program.
Through that funding and
donations, the PBS team
pays for the rewards students
receive. That could be biweekly
doughnut delivery for classes
with no “tardies,” or the monthly
class competition rewards like
tailgate parties and sporting
matches with faculty that take
place during the final periods of
the day and give kids a break in
exchange for showing up the rest

of the month.
All of this is being analyzed
as closely as academic data, but
it’s not just feedback for teachers
and administrators. The students
receive daily announcements
about the previous day’s
attendance numbers, and there
are displays that will record how
many competitions each class
has won.
Speaking of data, the school
has been tracking data on the
number of referrals written for
rule breaking and the results
might be surprising to those with
a negative image of the school.
From the 2013 school
year to 2014, the number of
referrals dropped by nearly
40 percent. There were fewer
incidents of skipping, class
disruption,
disrespect
to
teachers,
aggression/fighting,
abusive language, tardiness and
technology violations. There
were 57 fewer referrals for
skipping, 49 fewer for disruptions
and 27 fewer for fighting. In fact,
aggression/fighting represented
just 5 percent of the 356 referrals
written in the 2014 school year.
Students are disciplined for
attendance problems more than
anything else.
McCallum has also been
tracking what he calls positive
versus negative days.
“Any day on our campus
where our students’ attention
isn’t distracted by something
negative is a positive day,” he
said. “Students are able to go to
school, focus on their education
and do well.”
In the two years since
McCallum has been keeping
score, the high school has had
more than 330 positive days and
fewer than 30 negative ones.
“333 to 27 is 92 percent. It’s
beautiful,” he said. “That kind
of stuff is really important (and)
people need to know.”

Shands accredited in cardiac care
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
County Emergency Services and
its leaders, Dr. Pete Gianas and
Allen Parrish.
“Their willingness to play
a critical role throughout the
accreditation process is much
appreciated, and without their
help we would never have
been able to accomplish our
accreditation goal,” Emery said.
The process began more
than a year ago, and according
to Chief Nursing Executive
Andrea Waterhouse, many were
apprehensive, but EMS has
helped with organization and
education.
“We have learned so much,
we have put so many processes
in place,” she said. “We are so
blessed to have such a good
hospital to work at. … Our
mission there is to treat all people
like we’d want to be treated.”
Waterhouse said they never
want to miss an opportunity
to educate, and she introduced
Annette Starling and Heather
Bennett,
who
distributed
literature on responding to chest
pain. Both were integral in the
hospital’s accreditation, she said.
Roberts said Shands is one of
the best rural hospitals. He said
those who haven’t checked out
Drew
Emery
and
the
employees at Shands Starke
Regional Medical Center are
celebrating a recently achieved
accreditation.
The hospital has been
recognized by the Society of
Cardiovascular Patient Care as
an accredited chest pain center.
“The journey involved a very
thorough evaluation of all patient
care processes in our cardiac
service line,” said Emery, the
hospital’s recently appointed
CEO. “I’m proud to say that
because of this hard work that
we can provide our patient care
improvements to the citizens of
Bradford County.”
Emery appeared before the
county commission last week
with hospital board President
Scott Roberts to make the
announcement.
Roberts
praised
the
partnership the hospital has with
the county’s emergency services,
which was important in receiving
the accreditation. Emery said the
hospital could not have achieved
success in accreditation without
the commitment of Bradford
the hospital would be surprised
by what it offers.
“We’re probably one of the
smallest hospitals in the country
to achieve this,” he said.
According to the Society of
Cardiovascular Patient Care,
hospitals that receive chest
pain center accreditation have
achieved a higher level of
expertise in dealing with patients
who arrive with symptoms of
a heart attack. They are able
to provide more efficient and
effective evaluation as well as
more appropriate and rapid
treatment of patients with chest
pain and other heart attack
symptoms.
Shands
Starke
Regional
Medical Center has processes in
place to:
•
reduce the time from
onset of symptoms to diagnosis
and treatment.
• treat patients more
quickly during the critical
window of time when the
integrity of the heart muscle can
be preserved.
•
monitor patients when it
is not certain that they are having
a heart attack to ensure that they
are not sent home too quickly

County ‘workshops’ $39M budget
BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor
Bradford
County
Commissioners made their first
attempt in years at publicly
discussing their budget for 201415, but got bogged down in a
couple of details.
Rather than discuss the bulk of
the $39.4 million budget before
them, they spent much of the
time discussing whether or not to
spend an additional $10,000 on
recreation.
Commission
Chairman
Danny
Riddick
requested
$10,000 for park equipment for
Speedville, which lies in his
district. Commissioner Eddie
Lewis wanted to know where the
money would come from, and
Commissioner Doyle Thomas
said he didn’t have a problem with
spending money in Speedville,
but there are other communities
that have even less.
“If we put money in the
pot, don’t designate it all for
Speedville,” he said. “I would
like for every little community to
have something.”
Riddick agreed, saying he had
also been looking into someone
writing a grant for a splash park
similar to the one built in Lake
Butler. It doesn’t matter where it
is located, he said.
“I feel like if we don’t give
our children something to do,
then the sheriff is going to have
to give them something to do,”
Riddick said.
Commissioner Ross Chandler
said the county needs to keep
applying for grants, but as far
as the money the commission
spends, it has to be equitable for
all parts of the county.
Chandler questioned funding a
project already approved by the
board to put a basketball court
in Lincoln City for the same
reasons. That project is in Lewis’
district and is already underway.
The money was committed to
that purpose.
In the end, they compromised,
agreeing to put $10,000 more in
the budget for general recreation
purposes, but not designated for
a particular project.
The recreation budget, which
primarily covers the operation
of the senior center is up from
$62,000 to more than $89,000,
Present at the commission meeting were hospital board President Scott Roberts,
Shands Starke CEO Drew Emery, nurse Heather Bennett, Dr. Pete Gianas, Chief
Nursing Executive Andrea Waterhouse, EMS Director Allen Parrish and nurse Annette
Starling.
hospital.
“People tend to wait when
they think they might be having
a heart attack, and that’s a
mistake,” according to Emery.
“The average patient arrives in
the emergency department more
than two hours after the onset of
symptoms, but what they don’t
realize is that the sooner a heart
attack is treated, the less damage
to the heart and the better the
outcome for the patient.”
Shands is also involved in
promoting healthier behaviors to
reduce the risk factors for heart
attacks, and Waterhouse said
they are happy to help educate
local groups.
mostly due to added personnel
costs. There is also now a $15,000
reserve, up from $10,000, to pay
for contributions to qualifying
athletic associations.
Sheriff Gordon Smith made
a presentation about upgrading
emergency dispatch. Smith said
it’s time to take the next step in
public safety in Bradford County.
For him that means giving
dispatchers the tools to talk
callers through an emergency
while they are waiting on help to
arrive. That means giving them
guidance if someone is choking,
bleeding, experiencing chest
pain, not breathing, etc.
The software system will
enable the county to dispatch
resources more efficiently as
well, sending paramedics or
firefighters only where they are
needed and only in the numbers
necessary.
Smith said the lifesaving
technology would potentially
benefit everyone who lives in,
drives through or visits Bradford
County. Alachua, Clay and Duval
counties do it, but Bradford
would be the first county of
its size to provide this level of
service, he said.
The company providing, the
system, Priority Dispatch, is
a sole source for the product.
The recurring cost will be the
additional
communications
officers the sheriff intends to
hire.
Commissioners agreed the
plan and associated costs should
be added to the budget.
At $7.25 million, the fine and
forfeiture fund was down from
$7.8 million as of the workshop.
Of that amount, the jail accounts
for $2.1 million, up from $2
million, and the sheriff’s office
accounts for $3.18 million,
up form $3 million. More is
budgeted for personnel in the
jail as well as the sheriff’s office.
Operating costs were also up
slightly in both budgets.
The fund also comprises the
board’s spending on insurance,
utilities, repairs and maintenance,
and other law enforcement related
costs. The budget shows more
than $240,000 in set aside funds
from inmate housing available
for unplanned expenses.
Commissioner Lila Sellars
said her only “beef” with the
budget was the lack of a raise for
employees.
“That’s just a sore subject to
me, because I feel that all of our
employees are entitled to that,”
she said. She wants the board to
focus on making that happen in
the 2016 budget.
County Manager Brad Carter
discussed a request from solid
waste to add the cost of a garbage
truck into the 2015 budget. The
department’s oldest truck has
more than 800,000 miles on it.
The estimated cost is around
$155,000.
Thomas asked about equipment
in the road department. Carter
said they were on the lookout
but believe they already have the
needed funding included in the
budget.
The solid waste budget
proposed is currently down to
$1.45 million from $1.49 million.
The road department budget is
up from $4.53 million to $5.19
million. That includes grants for
Southeast 19th Avenue ($258,000)
and Southeast 144th Avenue
($1.5 million). It also includes
$200,000 for milling material
and $400,000 for hauling that
material. There is little change in
the rest of the budget compared
to 2014, including the $153,000
included for new item requests.
The general fund is up from
$12.8 million to $13.1 million.
The primary areas of difference
include the clerk’s office, up
$150,000 in personnel and
operating costs to $795,000; the
property appraiser, up nearly
$22,000 in personnel and
operating costs to $640,000; and
maintenance, which is up nearly
$39,000 to $505,000 largely due
to a new service agreement for
mold.
The supervisor of elections
budget is down more than
$22,000 to $401,000, and the
county attorney’s budget is down
$31,000 to $94,000. The same
$305,000 is included for the fire
departments. The EMS budget is
down from $3 million to $2.87
million.
The county continues to bank
“fiscally constrained” money
from the state and is up to $3.8
million. Chandler cautioned
that the board has to be careful
because the state could cease that
support if it feels the county has
too much.
“Even though we’re just trying
to be good stewards of the money,
they’ll just try and take that away
from us,” he said.
The library fund is up from
$1.99 million to nearly $2.38
million, although the county’s
contribution remains around
$462,000.
The commission’s first public
hearing on the budget is set for
5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 4.

2015, at 3:30 p.m. at the Woman’s
Club of Starke, 201 N. Walnut St. Cheryl Canova, Patricia Evans, Tyler Wilkins, Chrissie Owens, Denise Durban, Iana
Patterson, A.J. Sontag, Betty Warren and Pam Whittle participated in the Community
Steering Group meeting hosted by the Woman’s Club of Starke on Aug. 19.
Yoho re-elected. Yoho had an
overwhelming lead districtwide
as well, with more than 79
percent of the vote.
Bradford Democrats were
much more split on their choice
for governor. Former Gov.
Charlie Crist, took the majority
with 52 percent of the vote, but
Nan Rich was only 79 votes
behind. Statewide, Crist had
more than 74 percent of the vote
as of press time.
As for their choice for attorney
general, Bradford Democrats
chose George Sheldon over
Perry Thurston 62 to 38 percent.
Statewide Sheldon had 61 percent
of the vote as of press time.
In another landslide, William
Davis won the circuit judge race
with nearly 78 percent of the
vote in Bradford and 81 percent
throughout the Eighth Judicial
Circuit.

the primary was just below 25
percent.
in base rates recommended
by a rate study and the annual
5-percent increase in usage rates.
McMillian
attributed
declining revenue to a reduction
in sales, but she said a lot of
problem meters have been
discovered, too, and the city has
to be aggressive about getting
those repaired.
Commissioner Wilbur Waters
asked if the meter readers
couldn’t tell when a meter was
stuck. Some customers were
being billed the base rates for
water and sewer, but not for any
added consumption charges.
Consumption for some other
customers was estimated.
That needs to stop, Waters
said.
He also said the city needs to
be mindful of the need to replace
aging and failing water lines
around the city.
Capital outlay in utilities
includes $322,000 for the sewer
department. The sewer costs
are for equipment upgrades and
software costs as well as a new
lift station being installed on
Pratt Street.
McMillian noted that the
revenue transfer from utilities to
support general government is
down. It will go from $494,000
this year to $321,000 next year.
Retirement contributions have
been cut throughout the budget
because the city was working off
of inflated numbers. The back
and forth about what the city
was contributing on employees’
behalf was confusing. Overall,
the city contributes 57 cents for
each dollar it pays in salary to
general employees, down from
previous years.

Starke voters will go to the
polls Tuesday, Sept. 2, to vote
on the same referendum that was
just approved countywide. If the
referendum passes in Starke, the
city commission will have the
same authority to negotiate tax
breaks with new and expanding
businesses.
Polls will be open from 7
a.m. to 7 p.m. at city hall. All
registered votes in the Starke city
limits are eligible to vote in the
on developing the 2015 budget,
making the budget more realistic
in terms of current versus historic
needs.
The document does need some
tweaking. The amount rollover
from the utility rate stabilization
fund, for example, has not yet
been included.

Hampton
The Hampton election is set
for Tuesday, Sept. 9, at Hampton
City Hall. Polls will be open
from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m., and all
registered voters residing in the
city are eligible to participate.
All five of the council seats are
up for election. The candidates
are Michael David Armes, Frank

September in
the garden
I have been waiting for some cooler weather
to get my garden beds worked and my vegetable
garden started, and so I am a little bit behind in my
chores. If you are like me and have fallen behind,
here are some ideas to get started.
Summer garden beds can look a little
tired this time of year; try refreshing them
with ageratum, celosia, zinnia and wax
begonia to provide color into fall. You
can also add color, texture and pattern
to the garden with the many varieties of
elephant’s ear (Alocasia) available now.
Other bulbs to plant now include calla,
narcissus and zephyr lily. Plant herbs that
tolerate the warm temperatures of early
fall, such as Mexican tarragon, mint,
rosemary and basil. We can also plant cool season
vegetable crops such as radish, carrot, cabbage and
lettuce.
Fall is a great time to work in the yard and
garden, so here are some things to do in September.
Fall armyworms, chinch bugs, mole crickets and
sod webworms are still active this month, so
continue to monitor the lawn for signs of insect
damage. Now is a good time to divide and replant
perennials and bulbs that have grown too large
or need rejuvenation. Add organic matter to new
planting areas and monitor water needs during
establishment.
September is a good time to fertilize Bahia,
Bermudagrass, Zoysia and St. Augustine
lawns. Choose a fertilizer with no or very little
phosphorus unless a soil test indicates a need for it.
A fertilizer containing controlled-release nitrogen
will give longer lasting results. Healthy grass is the
I really enjoy watching the wildlife!
Here are some things to look for:
• Get feeders ready for returning birds.
• Hawk migration begins at St. Joseph
Peninsula in Gulf County.
• Bald eagles return to nest sites and
begin courtship.
• Manatees begin to concentrate in rivers, bays
and near power plants.
• Start listening for spadefoot toads after heavy
rains.
• Blue crabs migrate from the shallow panhandle
coast to deeper water for the winter.
Spadefoot toads are so named for a single,
sharp-edged, black spade that occurs on each of
the hind feet. This feature enables the amphibian
to burrow vertically into sandy or loose soils.
Unlike true toads, which have well-developed
warts and horizontal pupils, spadefoot toads
have vertical pupils and no warts. The Eastern
spadefoot toad is the only spadefoot occurring east
of the Mississippi River.

Water and Land Conservation - Dedicates funds to acquire and restore Florida conservation and
recreation lands
Funds the Land Acquisition Trust Fund to acquire, restore, improve, and manage conservation lands
including wetlands and forests; fish and wildlife habitat; lands protecting water resources and drinking
water sources, including the Everglades, and the water quality of rivers, lakes, and streams; beaches
and shores; outdoor recreational lands; working farms and ranches; and historic or geologic sites, by
dedicating 33 percent of net revenues from the existing excise tax on documents for 20 years.
This amendment does not increase or decrease state revenues. The state revenue restricted to the
purposes specified in the amendment is estimated to be $648 million in Fiscal Year 2015-16 and grows
to $1.268 billion by the twentieth year. Whether this results in any additional state expenditures depends
upon future legislative actions and cannot be determined. Similarly, the impact on local government
revenues, if any, cannot be determined. No additional local government costs are expected.

Prospective Appointment of Certain Judicial Vacancies
Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution requiring the Governor to prospectively fill
vacancies in a judicial office to which election for retention applies resulting from the justices or
judges reaching the mandatory retirement age or failure to qualify for a retention election; and
allowing prospective appointments if a justice or judge is not retained at an election. Currently,
the Governor may not fill an expected vacancy until the current justices or judges term expires.

a vote of the qualified electors within the territorial jurisdiction of the court.
(2) The election of county court judges shall be preserved notwithstanding the provisions of subsection
(a) unless a majority of those voting in the jurisdiction of that county approves a local option to select
county judges by merit selection and retention rather than by election. The election of county court
judges shall be by a vote of the qualified electors within the territorial jurisdiction of the court.
(3)a. A vote to exercise a local option to select circuit court judges and county court judges by merit
selection and retention rather than by election shall be held in each circuit and county at the general
election in the year 2000. If a vote to exercise this local option fails in a vote of the electors, such option
shall not again be put to a vote of the electors of that jurisdiction until the expiration of at least two
years.
b. After the year 2000, a circuit may initiate the local option for merit selection and retention or the
election of circuit judges, whichever is applicable, by filing with the custodian of state records a petition
signed by the number of electors equal to at least ten percent of the votes cast in the circuit in the last
preceding election in which presidential electors were chosen.
c. After the year 2000, a county may initiate the local option for merit selection and retention or the
election of county court judges, whichever is applicable, by filing with the supervisor of elections a
petition signed by the number of electors equal to at least ten percent of the votes cast in the county in
the last preceding election in which presidential electors were chosen. The terms of circuit judges and
judges of county courts shall be for six years.
SECTION 11. Vacancies.

persons but not more than six persons nominated by the appropriate judicial nominating commission.
The term of the appointment commences upon the expiration of the term of the office being vacated and
ends on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in January of the year following the next general
election.
(b) The governor shall fill each vacancy on a circuit court or on a county court, wherein the judges are
elected by a majority vote of the electors, by appointing for a term ending on the first Tuesday after the
first Monday in January of the year following the next primary and general election occurring at least
one year after the date of appointment, one of not fewer than three persons nor more than six persons
nominated by the appropriate judicial nominating commission. An election shall be held to fill that
judicial office for the term of the office beginning at the end of the appointed term.
(c) The nominations shall be made within thirty days from the occurrence of a vacancy or prospective
vacancy unless the period is extended by the governor for a time not to exceed thirty days. The
governor shall make the appointment within sixty days after the nominations have been certified to the

Conservación de aguas y tierras: dedicar fondos para adquirir y restaurar tierras objeto de conservación y
recreación en el Estado de Florida
Provee fondos para el Fondo Fiduciario de Adquisición de Tierras con el fin de adquirir, restaurar, mejorar
y administrar tierras objeto de conservación, entre ellas pantanos y bosques; el hábitat de peces y vida
silvestre; tierras que protegen los recursos hídricos y las fuentes de agua potable, incluidos los
Everglades, y la calidad del agua en ríos, lagos y arroyos; playas y costas; tierras de recreación al aire
libre; establecimientos agrícolas y ganaderos en actividad, y emplazamientos históricos o geológicos. Para
ello se dedicará el 33% de los ingresos netos obtenidos del impuesto especial existente sobre documentos
durante 20 años.
Esta enmienda no incrementa ni reduce los ingresos estatales. El ingreso estatal limitado para los
propósitos especificados en la enmienda se estima en $648 millones para el año fiscal 2015-16 y aumenta
a $1.268 mil millones hacia el vigésimo año. Si eso traerá como consecuencia gastos estatales adicionales
depende de futuras acciones legislativas y no puede determinarse. De la misma manera, tampoco puede
determinarse el impacto sobre los ingresos de gobiernos locales, si los hubiera. No se prevén costos de
gobiernos locales.
ARTÍCULO X
VARIOS
SECCIÓN 28. Fondo Fiduciario de Adquisición de Tierras.—
a) Con vigencia el 1° de julio del año posterior a la aprobación de esta enmienda por parte de los votantes
y durante un período de 20 años a partir de esa fecha de entrada en vigor, el Fondo Fiduciario de
Adquisición de Tierras recibirá no menos del 33% de los ingresos netos derivados del impuesto especial
existente sobre documentos, tal como se define en los estatutos vigentes al 1° de enero de 2012,
enmendados de tanto en tanto, o de cualquier impuesto sucesor o de reemplazo, después de que el
Departamento de Hacienda deduzca primero un cargo de servicio con el fin de pagar los costos de
recopilación y aplicación del impuesto especial sobre documentos.
b) El dinero del Fondo Fiduciario de Adquisición de Tierras se empleará únicamente con los siguientes
propósitos:
1) Como lo establece la ley, para financiar o refinanciar: la adquisición o mejora de tierras, áreas de agua y
derechos inmobiliarios relacionados, entre ellos las servidumbres de conservación y los recursos para
tierras objeto de conservación, como, por ejemplo, pantanos, bosques y hábitat de peces y vida silvestre;
áreas de administración de vida silvestre; tierras que protegen los recursos hídricos y las fuentes de agua
potable, entre ellos las tierras que protegen la calidad y cantidad del agua en ríos, lagos, arroyos,
manantiales, y tierras que brindan recarga de agua subterránea y sistemas acuíferos; tierras en el Área
agrícola de los Everglades y el Área de protección de los Everglades, como están definidas en el Artículo
II, Sección 7(b); playas y costas; tierras de recreación al aire libre, incluidos senderos recreativos, parques
y espacios abiertos urbanos; paisajes rurales; establecimientos agrícolas y ganaderos en actividad,
emplazamientos históricos o geológicos; junto con la administración, restauración de sistemas naturales y
mejoramiento del acceso público o disfrute recreativo de las tierras objeto de conservación.
2) Para el pago del servicio de la deuda sobre los bonos emitidos conforme al Artículo VII, Sección 11(e).
c) El dinero depositado en el Fondo Fiduciario de Adquisición de Tierras, tal como se define en los
estatutos vigentes al 1° de enero de 2012, no estará mezclado ni se mezclará con el Fondo de Ingresos
Generales del Estado.
Uso de marihuana para algunas enfermedades
Permite el uso médico de la marihuana a las personas con enfermedades debilitantes, según lo determine
un médico autorizado por el Estado de Florida. Permite a los cuidadores asistir a los pacientes en el uso
médico de marihuana. El Departamento de Salud deberá inscribir y regular los centros que producen y
distribuyen marihuana con fines médicos y deberán extender tarjetas de identificación a pacientes y
cuidadores. Se aplica únicamente a las leyes del Estado de Florida. No autoriza infracciones de la ley
federal ni ningún uso, posesión o producción de marihuana con fines que no sean médicos.
El aumento de costos generado por esta enmienda para el gobierno estatal y los gobiernos locales no
puede determinarse. Habrá actividades adicionales de regulación y aplicación asociadas a la producción y
venta de marihuana con fines médicos. Las tarifas compensarán al menos en parte los costos de
regulación. Si bien el impuesto sobre la venta se aplica a las compras, los cambios fiscales no pueden
determinarse de manera razonable, dado que, si no existe una acción legislativa o administrativa estatal,
no está claro en qué medida la marihuana con fines médicos estará exenta de impuestos.
ARTÍCULO X
VARIOS
SECCIÓN 29. Producción, posesión y uso de marihuana con fines médicos.—
(a) POLÍTICA PÚBLICA.

ante el Departamento, o sus empleados, según se contempla en esta sección y en cumplimiento de las
reglamentaciones del Departamento, no estarán sujetos a responsabilidad ni a sanciones penales o civiles
conforme a las leyes del Estado de Florida, excepto según se indica en esta sección.

superiores a los riesgos potenciales para la salud de un paciente.
(2) «Departamento» significa el Departamento de Salud o su agencia sucesora.
(3) «Tarjeta de identificación» significa un documento emitido por el Departamento que identifica a una
persona que tiene un certificado médico o a un cuidador personal de por lo menos veintiún (21) años de

recursos judiciales para obligar al cumplimiento de las obligaciones constitucionales del Departamento.
(4) El Departamento deberá proteger la confidencialidad de todos los pacientes calificados. Todos los

Nombramiento Eventual para Ciertos Cargos Judiciales Vacantes
Proponer una enmienda a la Constitución del Estado en la que se establezca que el Gobernador
debe cubrir las vacantes eventuales en los cargos judiciales que estén sujetos a elecciones de
retención cuando los jueces o magistrados se encuentren por cumplir la edad legal para jubilarse o
en el supuesto de que no califiquen para la elección de retención; y permitir los nombramientos
eventuales si un juez o magistrado no se retiene en su cargo en una elección de retención. En la
actualidad, el Gobernador no puede cubrir una vacante prevista hasta que termine el mandato del
juez o magistrado actual.
ARTÍCULO V
PODER JUDICIAL
SECCIÓN 10. Retención; elección y mandatos.—
(a) Cualquier juez o magistrado puede calificar para la retención, la cual se produce mediante el voto de los
electores en la próxima elección general que sea anterior a la conclusión del mandato del juez o magistrado
por las causas establecidas por ley. Cuando Si un juez o magistrado no esté habilitado para ser retenido o
no cumple con los requisitos para la retención, se producirá una vacante eventual al finalizar el periodo de
calificación de retención a fin de nombrar un juez o magistrado sucesor, y se producirá una vacante en ese
cargo judicial a la finalización del mandato cumplido por el juez o magistrado. Cuando un juez o magistrado
califique como tal para la retención, en la boleta se deberá leer claramente lo siguiente: “¿Deberá el
Magistrado (o Juez) ...(nombre del juez o magistrado)... de la...(nombre de la corte)... ser retenido en el
cargo judicial?” Si la mayoría de los electores calificados que votan dentro de la jurisdicción territorial de la
corte eligen retenerlo, entonces, el juez o magistrado continuará ejerciendo sus funciones durante un
periodo de seis años. Este mandato del juez o magistrado que ha sido retenido comenzará el primer martes
luego del primer lunes de enero siguiente a la elección general. Si la mayoría de los electores calificados
que votan dentro de la jurisdicción territorial de la corte eligen no retenerlo, una vacante eventual se
producirá inmediatamente luego de la elección general con la finalidad de nombrar a un juez o magistrado
sucesor, y se producirá una vacante en ese cargo judicial a la finalización del mandato cumplido por el juez
o magistrado.
(b)(1) Se deberá mantener el método de elección de jueces de circuito sin perjuicio de las disposiciones de
la sub-sección (a), excepto que la mayoría de los votantes en la jurisdicción de dicho circuito aprueben la
opción local de elegir a los jueces de circuito mediante el sistema de selección por mérito y elecciones de
retención en lugar de mediante una elección. La elección de los jueces de circuito deberá realizarse
mediante el voto de electores calificados dentro de la jurisdicción territorial de la corte.
(2) Se deberá mantener el método de elección de los jueces de la corte del condado, sin perjuicio de las
disposiciones de la sub-sección (a), excepto que la mayoría de los votantes en la jurisdicción de dicho
condado aprueben la opción local de elegir a los jueces del condado mediante el sistema de selección por
mérito y elecciones de retención en lugar de mediante una elección. La elección de los jueces del Condado
deberá realizarse mediante el voto de electores calificados dentro de la jurisdicción territorial de la corte.
(3)a. En la elección general del año 2000 se deberá votar en cada jurisdicción territorial de circuito y de
condado para decidir si el modo de elegir a los jueces de circuito y a los jueces del condado será mediante
el sistema de selección por mérito y elecciones de retención en lugar de mediante una elección. Si los
electores votan por no ejercer esta opción local, esta opción no podrá someterse a votación de los electores
en esa jurisdicción hasta que hayan transcurrido al menos dos años.
b. A partir del año 2000, cada circuito puede presentar la opción local de elección por mérito y elecciones de
retención o de la elección de jueces de circuito, según corresponda, al presentar una solicitud ante el
encargado de los registros estatales. Dicha solicitud deberá estar firmada por un número de electores igual
a por lo menos el diez por ciento de los votos emitidos en la jurisdicción de ese circuito en la última elección
presidencial efectuada.
c. A partir del año 2000, cada condado puede presentar la opción local de elección por mérito y elecciones
de retención o la elección de los jueces del condado, según corresponda, al presentar una solicitud ante el
supervisor de las elecciones. Dicha solicitud deberá estar firmada por un número de electores igual a por lo
menos el diez por ciento de los votos emitidos en el condado en la última elección presidencial efectuada.
Los mandatos de los jueces de circuito y los jueces de condado serán de seis años.
SECCIÓN 11. Vacantes.—
(a)(1) Siempre que se produzca una vacante en un cargo judicial sujeto a la elección de retención, el
gobernador deberá cubrir la vacante mediante el nombramiento de una persona entre al menos tres y no
más de seis personas nominadas por la comisión judicial de nombramientos correspondiente, por un
periodo que finalizará el primer martes luego del primer lunes de enero del año siguiente a las próximas
elecciones generales que se efectúen al menos un año después de la fecha del nombramiento.
(2) Siempre que se produzca una vacante eventual en un cargo judicial sujeto a la elección de retención, el
gobernador deberá cubrir esa vacante eventual mediante el nombramiento de un juez o un magistrado de
entre al menos tres personas y no más de seis personas nominadas por la comisión judicial de
nombramientos correspondiente. El plazo del nombramiento comienza cuando finaliza el plazo del cargo
que quedó vacante y concluye el primer martes luego del primer lunes de enero del año siguiente a la
próxima elección general.
(b) El gobernador deberá cubrir cada vacante de una corte de circuito o de una corte de condado, en donde
los jueces sean elegidos por mayoría de votos de los electores, al nombrar a una persona entre no menos
de tres y no más de seis personas nominadas por la comisión judicial de nombramientos correspondiente,
por un periodo que concluye el primer martes luego del primer lunes de enero del año que sigue a elección
primaria y general que se efectúe por lo menos un año después de la fecha del nombramiento. Se deberá
realizar una elección para cubrir ese cargo judicial por el periodo del cargo que comienza al finalizar el
periodo del cargo por nombramiento.
(c) Los nombramientos se deberán realizar dentro de los treinta días desde que se ha producido la vacante
o vacante eventual, excepto que el gobernador extienda el período por un lapso que no podrá exceder los
treinta días. El gobernador deberá realizar el nombramiento dentro de los sesenta días desde que los
nombramientos hayan sido certificados ante el gobernador.
(d) Tal como lo establece la legislación general, deberán existir diferentes comisiones judiciales de
nombramientos para el Tribunal Supremo, para cada tribunal de apelación de distrito, y para cada circuito
judicial en todos los juzgados de primera instancia del circuito. Las comisiones judiciales de nombramientos
deberán establecer reglamentos de procedimiento uniformes en cada nivel del sistema judicial. Tales
reglamentos, o cualquier parte de ellos, podrán ser derogados por las leyes generales promulgadas con la
mayoría de votos de cada cámara de la Asamblea Legislativa, o por el Tribunal Supremo de Justicia con el
voto concurrente de cinco magistrados. A excepción de las deliberaciones realizadas por las comisiones
judiciales de nombramientos, los procedimientos de las comisiones y sus registros deberán estar abiertos al
público.

permit# IND-001-84297-2. The project is located in Alachua County, Section 33, Township 9S South, Range
19E East. The permit authorizes a
surface water management system
on 1.3 acres for Gymnasium and
Parking Addition known as Tower Hill
Insurance. The receiving water body
is Alachua County Public Works MS4.
A person whose substantial interests
are or may be affected has the right
to request an administrative hearing
by filing a written petition with the St.
Johns River Water Management District (District). Pursuant to Chapter
28-106 and Rule 40C-1.1007, Florida
Administrative Code (F.A.C.), the petition must be filed (received) either
by delivery at the office of the District Clerk at District Headquarters,
P.O. Box 1429, Palatka FL 321781429 (4049 Reid St, Palatka, FL
32177) or by e-mail with the District
Clerk at [email protected], within
twenty-one (21) days of newspaper
publication of the notice of District
decision (for those persons to whom
the District does not mail or email
actual notice). A petition must comply with Sections 120.54(5)(b)4. and
120.569(2)(c), Florida Statutes (F.S.),
and Chapter 28-106, F.A.C. The District will not accept a petition sent by
facsimile (fax). Mediation pursuant to
Section 120.573, F.S., may be available and choosing mediation does
not affect your right to an administrative hearing.
A petition for an administrative hearing is deemed filed upon receipt of
the complete petition by the District
Clerk at the District Headquarters in
Palatka, Florida during the District’s
regular business hours. The District’s
regular business hours are 8 a.m. – 5
p.m., excluding weekends and District
holidays. Petitions received by the
District Clerk after the District’s regular business hours shall be deemed
filed as of 8 a.m. on the District’s next
regular business day. The District’s
acceptance of petitions filed by email is subject to certain conditions
set forth in the District’s Statement of
Agency Organization and Operation
(issued pursuant to Rule 28-101.001,
Florida Administrative Code), which is
available for viewing at floridaswater.
com. These conditions include, but
are not limited to, the petition being in
the form of a PDF or TIFF file and being capable of being stored and printed by the District. Further, pursuant
to the District’s Statement of Agency
Organization and Operation, attempting to file a petition by facsimile (fax)
is prohibited and shall not constitute
filing.
The right to an administrative hearing and the relevant procedures to
be followed are governed by Chapter 120, Florida Statutes, Chapter
28-106, Florida Administrative Code,
and Rule 40C-1.1007, Florida Administrative Code. Because the administrative hearing process is designed
to formulate final agency action, the
filing of a petition means the District’s
final action may be different from the
position taken by it in this notice. Failure to file a petition for an administrative hearing within the requisite time
frame shall constitute a waiver of the
right to an administrative hearing.
(Rule 28-106.111, F.A.C.).
