4 4 DECEMBER 2000 LWVCC fcucaiio~l Nancy Wolfe, Chair International College Tour January 24th A ~our of the new north Nap~s campus of the International College ;s scheduled for Wednesday morning, January 24, 2001, from 10 to 11 a.m. Nancy Wolfe, Education Chair, invites all interested League members to participate. Dr. Lou Traina will conduct the tour and give us some information about the rapidly expanding programs of the college. After the tour League members are invited to Nancy Wolfe's home for a brown bag lunch. The new International College campus is located on the north side of Immokalee Road, just east of Interstate 75, Exit 17. League members wishing to attend should contact Nancy at ; Carolyn Jefferson-JenKins, Pres., LWVUS Speaks Out On the Florida Vote The i League of Women Voters of Soyth Palm Beach Coynty and West palm Beach Area have together received several hundred calls regarding the election in Palm Beach county As a community resource, we have endeavored to direct the callers to use the processes set up in the county and the state. The League's position is that the Florida Secretary of State should do everything in her power to ensure the integrity of the voting process and to promote public confidence in the Florida voter tally. The League has long advocated standardized election procedures and legal performance standards for all hardware, software and management elements of voting systems certified by the Secretary of State. The League also believes that the Florida Elections Commission should be responsible for investigating election procedures, hearing complaints and making recommendations for change. Should a re-vote be necessary, our Leagues will be available to assist in any capacity. The following statement has been issued by Carolyn Jefferson-Jenkins, Ph.D., President of the League of Women Voters of the United States, November 9, The uniquely Al1Jerican story now being played out in Florida illustrates two key points about our political system. First, in the age of the Internet, we still rely on a horse-and-buggy election system. Second, despite the uncertainty of and confusion surrounding the outcome of the presidential ejection, our ~AIURAL RESOURCES Leonore Reich, Chair Due to the holiday, our December 15th meeting is canceled. Next meeting will be on Friday, January 1 9, Speaker and details will be in January's VOTER. Happy Holidays to alii (continued from column 1) democracy is strong and stable. The League believes wholeheartedly that the current legal steps being taken to determine the outcome of the 2000 presidential election should be deliberately pursued to their final conclusion. There is no rush. There is no need to short-circuit that process. The rule of law must prevail. The process is proceeding appropriately and peacefully, and all parties have pledged to abide by the eventual result~ Even so, the American people are deeply and appropriately concerned. And that is why, after the outcome of this election is determined, we must make reforms to ensure a broadbased representative democracy in the 27st century. American elections are a crazy quilt. Ballots and administrative procedures vary from state to state, and even from county to county. Our system is a relic of the past that is lagging behind the rest of our 21st century democracy. For example, the next President of the United States may be determined by the placement of names on a ballot, made by one county's officials. Voters in several states who registered when they renewed their driver's licenses found their names missing from the rolls on election day. We needa technology upgrade. The course of american history has been an inexorable trend toward greater fairness, uniformity and inclusiveness in our democracy. Yet, the systems for electing the most important representative of the American people are stuck in a time warp. The Electoral College, a curious vestige of the 18th century, violates the principle of one person, one vote. The time has come to abolish it. It's time to bring our elections into the 27st century. It's time to streamline the confusing patchwork system that uhderminesvoters' faith in their government. It's time to ensure that the President of the United States is directly elected by the people he or she will represent. It's time to guarantee that, across the country, every person's vote counts -- and counts the same. " (Text forwarded from LWV South Palm Beach)

5 LWVCC DECEtvmER AROUND FLORIDA FERTILIZER POSITION IN BREVARD LOOKING FOR CONCURRENCE The Space Coast League, Brevard County, has adopted the following position: "Appropriate governmental agencies shall test fertilizers for heavy metals, persistent organic poisons, and other toxic substances. The results 01 those tests shall be printed on labels that are attachea to the fertilizer containers. Fertilizers that contain materials derived from toxic waste orsludge shall be labeled as SUCh. Our full report and annotated bibliography have been sent to State and we ~ill be requesting concurrence with our position at the State Convention in May Through our research we have found that American fertilizer companies routinely "recycle" toxic factory wastes of all kinds into fertilizers. Most farmers and home gardeners are not aware of this. Although fertilizer products must list beneficial materials, there is no requirement that toxins, such as arsenic, lead and cadmium, be included on these ingredient labels. The federal government does not regulate fertilizers at all, nor do most states have any regulations on toxins in fertilizers. The state that is most concerned, Washington, has not been able to pass legislation requiring the listing of toxic materials on fertilizers because of strong opposition from the fertilizer industry. There is a good case here for the fertilizer user's "right to know." This is a problem that affects the whole country and there needs to be national grass roots support if any changes are to be made. The League has always supported the cause of "truth in labeling." Fertilizer is another product, among many, that has the potential of harming many people without their knowledge and without the listing of all ingredients, consumers are deprived of their "right to know." The State League's position as stated in Study and Action ( ), is "The League supports toxins-use-reduction standards for industry and community right-to-know legislation on toxic and hazardous chemicals." Shirley Jin and Yvonne Hubbard Natural Resources Committee LWVSC - Brevard County JUSIICE Katherine Todd, Chair After a brief period of derailmeont following the unfortunate news of Dorothy Ferguson's resignation as Chair, the Justice Committee will get back on track in January with Katherine Todd, as the new Chair. Although new to Naples and the League, Katherine is no stranger to justice-related issues and agencies. A clinical social worker in the1970's, she designed and implemented a victim/witness assistance program and a diversion program for first-time felony offenders for a district attorney's office. Later she served as a consultant to a public defender's. office, conducting psychosocial evaluations, testifying' and forwarding re~ommendations. A specialist in children and adolescents, she has served on numerous child abuse and juvenile justice committees and panels. Katherine has conducted assessments and prepared disposition reports at the request of family court judges and case workers. While continuing its strong focus on juv~nile justice issues, the committee will also explore the over-representation of minorities in arrests and sentencing, and the availability of alternatives to incarceration and of mental health and substance abuse treatment. Katherine will contact each committee member of 'record in late December/early January when specifics regarding topic, speaker, date, time and location have solidified. She encourages anyone who may be interested in checking out the committee to give her a call at "A human being is part of a whole, called by us, the 'Universe' a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest - a kind of'optical delusion' of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind ofprison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion, to embrace all living creatures and the whole ofnature in its beauty." - Albert Einstein
