Airport project continues to move forward


JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
The Panama City-Bay County
International Airport project con-
tinues to move forward. Randy
Curtis, executive director of the
airport authority, was on hand
Thursday morning as the Wash-
ington County Chamber of Com-
merce held its monthly breakfast
at Patillo's Restaurant at Washing-
ton-Holmes Technical Center.
Curtis said that the process
could be compared to a football
game.
"We're inside the 10-yard line
and it's first and goal," he said.
"Success is in sight, but the last 10
yards are the hardest." Curtis said,
however, that there did not appear
to be anything that could stop the
estimated $331 million project to
put the facility on West Bay.

History
The process began in 1997-98
when it was becoming obvious
that Panama City Airport was rap-
idly becoming obsolete. It handled
382,551 passengers in 2006.
"The airport was built over 60
years ago," Curtis said. "Once it
was out in the country, but now
it's surrounded." The only pos-
sible place to expand the 6,304-
foot primary runway to handle

larger jets was into St. Andrew's
Bay, impossible due to a probable
environmental firestorm. There
were noise issues (a nursing home


was at the end of one runway), the
aging facility did not meet all the
necessary Federal Aviation Ad-
ministration (FAA) regulations,


and Tyndall AFB was too close
for comfort. During Hurricane
Opal a third of the airport was
under water.
It was time to upgrade or move.
Move won out.
Curtis said. The problem was
finding land, but the interest of a
major timber and paper company
to diversify presented an oppor-
tunity.
"About this time the St. Joe
Company began reorganizing the
direction they were going in,"
Curtis said. St. Joe is one of the
largest landowners in Florida, and
they began moving away from
timber and paper toward devel-
oping their properties. Once or-
ganizers found that St. Joe would
provide about 4,000 acres for an
airport, as well as 10,000 acres
for the required environmental
mitigation, the feasibility study
was underway.
"The feasibility study that was
done showed that it would be
more economical to move to a
new site versus remaining at the
constrained site,"
Eventually, what organizers
came up was a 70,000 acre site
on West Bay with 40,000 acres
set aside for conservation. Curtis

Update on driving range, lease for old City Hall


JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
The former driving range in
Chipley will definitely be vacated
by February 25, according to Chi-
pley City Administrator Jim Mor-
ris. Morris made his report at the
regular meeting of City Council
Tuesday night.
Council approved sending a
letter to the School District having
Washington-Holmes Technical
Center vacate the former driv-
ing range by February 25, or be
charged $250 a day after that, at
its last meeting. The driving range
was originally to be vacated by
September 5, 2006, and then by
January 1, and then by February
25.
Morris told Council that the
School Board told him at its regu-
lar meeting last week that it would
vacate the property on time.
The Chamber of Commerce
is getting its new home. Council
approved a 99-year lease for $1 a
year for the Chamber to move to
the old City Hall. Chamber Ex-
ecutive Director Ted Everett was
on hand, and told Council that he
expected the Chamber Board of
Directors to approve the agree-
ment at its meeting Wednesday.
Under the agreement the Chamber
will be responsible for paying
utilities and maintenance, and the
City will take care of the grounds.
The renovation of the historic
building was funded by a grant.
The Washington County Tour-
ist Development Council is among
the organizations that could oc-
cupy the present Chamber office
in the old depot.

said the large amount of
land set aside for conserva-
tion pleased almost all local
environmentalists who were
concerned about the safety
of the bay.
"They realized that it
went a long way toward
preserving the bay," Curtis
said.
It has not pleased some
large national organiza-
tions, but their protests
have been futile to date, and
Curtis said he expects that
most challenges presented
by these organizations will
be met.
Both wildlife and airliner
safety will be enhanced by a
10,000-foot wildlife habitat
around the airport. This is
planned to limit possible
problems with birds drift-
ing into the path of jumbo
jets, a bad combination for
airline safety.
The site is also out of
the storm surge area and
is much less susceptible to
flooding and other damage
from hurricanes.

of Decision approving the
relocation of the Panama
City - Bay County Inter-
national Airport to the pro-
posed site in West Bay.
On Dec. 4,2006 the proj-
ect received the final State
of Florida permits necessary
to move forward with the re-
location of the Panama City
- Bay County International
Airport. Issuance of the
state permit clears the way
for the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers to issue a Section
404 permit, the final permit
necessary before construc-
tion of the new airport can
begin. All challenge periods
for the State of Florida per-
mits have expired, and the
issuance of these permits
concludes the state permit-
ting process.

The funding
"We promised the citi-
zens of Bay County that the
airport would not cost any
tax money," Curtis said. To
accomplish that, organizers
are looking at the following
funding mechanisms, most
of which are in place:
*Revenue from the new
airport.
*Grants from the FAA:
About one-third of the fund-
ing.
*Funding from the state
'Transportation Trust Fund
for another third.
*Sale of the existing air-
port. Four proposals were
received in October 2006
ranging from $30 to $61
million and including a

to set up its facility there.
Originally there were 10
acres, but three more acres
were needed. Council also'
approved donating two
acres of land in the park to
the Chamber.
*Approved appointing
Darrin Wall to the Recre-
ation Committee to replace
Gene Holley.
*Declared a 1999 Crown
Victoria police car as sur-
plus and approved dispos-
ing of it. It was recently
replaced by a new vehicle.
*Approved allowing the
Shaddai Shriners to hold
their annual Shrine Paper
Day at the intersection of
Jackson Avenue and Main
Street on March 24. Rain
date is March 31.
*Approved an agreement
with Baskerville-Donovan,
Inc., the City's engineering
firm, outlining deadlines
and additional payments.
NOTE: City offices will
be closed Monday, January
19 for President's Day.

Things that are not sold
Feb. 24, will be donated to
Goodwill, Salvation Army
or Habitat for Humanity.
"We plan to have a lot of
fun so come and help sup-
port us," Burch added.
The group has 4x6 foot
American flags for sale at
$10 each.

tions, may call Mike or Ira

wide variety of develop-
ment plans.

The project
Estimated cost of the
project has increased from
$316.2 million in August
2006 to the present $331
million, Curtis told the
Chamber. This is in con-
junction with increases in
all building supplies and
construction costs in North-
west Florida over the past
few years.
Curtis noted that 4,000
acres is far too much for
current air transportation


needs, and only about 1,400
acres will be utilized at first.
The rest will be there for ex-
pansion when necessary. All
of the property, however, is
going through the permit
process.
"We're looking out for
the future," Curtis said.
"We're getting all the land
permitted for future use."
Development will be in
phases, and there will be
almost 100 buildings in
Phase I. All will need to be
permitted.
The planned 8,400-foot
primary runway could be


expanded up to 12,000 feet
if feasible. A 10,000-foot
runway could handle 99
percent of all airline and air
transport needs.
There will also be a
5,000-foot crosswind run-
way, a commercial pas-
senger terminal, a general
aviation terminal, air traffic
control tower, and support
and service facilities. There
will be cargo-handling fa-
cilities (it may be possible
to handle cargo from an
Airbus 380, but not the im-
mense passenger load of
that aircraft), and the ter-
minal is planned to handle
Boeing 767 airliners.
The 100,000-square-foot
terminal (the current airport
has a 56,000-square-foot
terminal) has a light, open
look. While there is plenty
of glass, that glass will be
stressed to handle both pow-
erful jet exhaust and high
winds from storms, Curtis
said. The terminal will also
meet the "Silver Level" of
the U.S. Green Building
Council by being at least
20 percent more energy ef-
ficient than a conventional
building of similar size and
function. "The goal is 30
percent," Curtis said.
"As far as we know it will
also have the first escalator
in Bay County," Curtis said.'
There will be six to eight
gates, with one specifically


designed for a 767.
Security and passenger-
handling arrangements are
still being developed and
could change as Homeland
Security develops new tech-
nology.
There will also be resi-
dential and industrial re-
gional development orga-
nized under the West Bay
Sector Plan. The Airport
Commerce Council will
also be involved, and mem-
bership includes chambers
of commerce, environmen-
tal groups, business leaders
and other organizations.
Curtis told Washington
County Chamber of Com-
merce Executive Director
Ted Everett to "be prepared
for a phone call." Everett
expressed his interest.
"It's very important that
this be regional rather than
just Bay County and Pana-
ma City," Curtis said. "Our
marketing area is within a
two-to-three-hour drive."
Curtis said that Bay
County is close to working
out a deal to transfer County
Road 388, a major access
road, to the state of Florida.
"The state appears to be
more than willing to make
the necessary improve-
ments," Curtis said.
The. St. Joe Company
will donate right of.way,

will donate about $2 million

Washington County celebrates Relay for Life


History of Relay for Life
Washington County Sher-
iff Bobby Haddock told the
story of how Relay for Life
began at last year's event.
The story can be found at
www.cancer.org.
The American Cancer
Society Relay For Life
began in Tacoma, Wash.,
as the City of Destiny Clas-
sic 24-Hour Run Against
Cancer.
In the mid-1980s, Dr.
Gordy Klatt, a Tacoma sur-
geon, wanted to increase
the income of his local
American Cancer Society.
He decided to raise money
for the fight by doing some-
thing he enjoyed; running
marathons.
In May 1985, Dr. Klatt
spent 24 hours circling the
track at Baker Stadium at
the University of Puget
Sound in Tacoma for more
than 83 miles. Throughout
the night, friends paid $25
to run or walk 30 minutes
with him.
He raised $27,000 to
fight cancer. That first year,
nearly 300 of Dr. Klatt's
friends, family, and pa-
tients watched as he ran and
walked the course.
While he circled the track
those 24 hours, he thought
about how others could take
part. He envisioned a 24-
hour team relay event that
could raise more money to
fight cancer. Months later


Lamar Townsend was among the walkers at last year's Relay.


he pulled together a small
committee to plan the first
team relay event known as
the City of Destiny Clas-
sic 24-Hour Run Against
Cancer.
In 1986, 19 teams took
part in the first team relay
event on the track at the
colorful, historical Stadium
Bowl and raised $33,000.
Haddock said that more
than three million people
participate in the Relay for
Life all across the country,
and that millions of dollars
have been raised to fight
cancer.
Haddock said there were


over 98,000 new cases of
cancer in 2006 in Florida
and over 1.3 million new
cases of cancer in the U.S.
"We are all in the race to
find a cure for every kind of
cancer," Haddock said.
The American Cancer
Society was established
in 1913 and is the largest
private provider of cancer
research in the U.S. It boasts
38 Nobel Prize winners.
For more information, call
1-800-ACS-2345 or www.
cancer.org.

Meeting schedule
A meeting schedule for


Washington County Relay
For Life has been released
for this year's event. The
relay will be held April 20-
21. Its theme will be televi-
sion game shows. Meetings
will take place February 19,
March 19 and April 16.
All meetings will be held

HEALTHY DOSE


Train your brain to stay
sharp through the years
Giving your brain a work-
out can help you stay men-
Stally sharp with age. A study
published in the Journal of
the American Medical As-
sociation found that "brain
training" sessions can keep
older people's minds fit and
improve their ability to do
everyday activities.
The study looked at
nearly 3,000 men and wom-
en, most of them white, in
six U.S. cities. The par-
ticipants were randomly
assigned to a six-week
training course in memory,
reasoning or speedy mental
processing. The courses
involved hourlong classes.
The participants were tested
before and after the train-
ing courses and compared
to a group that received no
training.
The researchers found
that nearly 90 percent of
the speed training group,
74 percent of the reasoning


group and 26 percent of the
memory group had better
test scores in the mental
functions they were trained
in almost immediately after
finishing the course. After
five years, the participants
were asked to evaluate their
ability to perform everyday
tasks, while researchers also
rated their functioning. The
group that received reason-
ing training reported less
decline than the compari-
son group, and researchers
said participants who got
refresher courses in speed
training were the only ones
who actually performed
better.
The researchers say that
the training is not a cure-
all, but the fact that there
were some improvements in
function five years after the
training is significant, The
Associated Press reports.
VITAMIN D AND MS:
Vitamin D could prevent
multiple sclerosis. That's
the finding of a study pub-


LIVESTOCK REPORTS

For the week ended February 15, 2007
At the Florida Livestock Auctions, receipts totaled
$5,850 compared to $6,0141ast week and $6,047 a year
ago. According to the Florida Federal-State Livestock
Market News Service, compared last week, slaughter
cows and bulls were steady to $2 higher, feeder steers and
heifers,were $2 to $4 higher.
Feeder Steers: Medium & Large Frame No. 1-2
200-300 lbs. $128.00- 195.00
300-400 lbs. $118.00- 160.00
400-500 lbs. $ 95.00 - 128.00
Feeder Heifers: Medium & Large Frame No. 1-2
200-300 lbs. $115.00 - 180.00
300-400 lbs. $100.00 - 134.00
400-500 lbs. $ 90.00 - 114.00
Slaughter Cows: Lean
750-1200 lbs. 85-90 percent $44.00 - 49.00
Slaughter Bulls: Yield Grade, No. 1-2
1,000-2,100 lbs. $58.00 - 66.00


lished in the Journal of the
American Medical Asso-
ciation. The study looked
at data on more than seven
million people serving in
the U.S. military. Research-
ers analyzed blood samples
of servicemen and women
to measure their vitamin D
levels. They found that for
whites, those with the high-
est levels of vitamin D had
a 62 percent lower risk for
MS compared to those with
the lowest levels. Those
with low vitamin D levels
who were younger than 20
were at greatest risk for MS,
suggesting that vitamin D


exposure before adulthood
is especially important, The
Associated Press reports.
There was no MS-vitamin
D connection in blacks or
Hispanics in the study.
The researchers said that
if confirmed, their findings
suggest that MS might be
prevented by increasing
vitamin D levels, although
they said it was too soon
to recommend vitamin D
supplements to prevent the
disease.

Girl Scout Council of the Apalachee Bend anniversary


Were you a Girl Scout
between 1912 and 1997
and currently reside in Bay,
Calhoun, Gulf, Holmes,
Jackson, or Washington
County? Whether you are a
former Girl Scout (Brownie
counts), leader, volunteer,
camp counselor/director,
board or staff member, the
Girl Scout Council of the
Apalachee Bend, Inc. in-
vites you to reconnect in
2007 as Girl Scouts cel-
ebrate 95 years of making
the world a better place.
To commemorate this
milestone, the Girl Scout
Council of the Apalachee
Bend, Inc. is hosting an
alumnae reception from 5
- 8 p.m., Thursday, March
15, at the Girl Scouts Bay
Service Center, 1515 St.
Andrews Blvd., Panama
City.
"This is an opportunity
for former Girl Scouts to be-
come aware of the transfor-
mation that is taking place
at the national and local
level to keep Girl Scouting
relevant," said Raslean M.
Allen, chief executive offi-
cer of the Girl Scout Coun-
cil of the Apalachee Bend,
Inc. "The evening will be
a revered time of sharing
memories, having fun, and
celebrating 95 years of suc-
cess and making the world a
better place," she added.
Since 1912, nearly 50
million women across the
country have been Girl


Scouts. This means nearly
a half million women in
America have been a part of
the world's preeminent or-
ganization dedicated solely
to girls, an organization that
has shaped many of today's
leaders. Girl Scouts alum-
nae know firsthand how
transforming the programs
offered can be.
Bay County residents
who were involved in Girl
Scouts as leaders, day camp
directors and as girls had
this to say: "Girl Scouts
gave me. lots of confidence
.and I have met lasting
friends. I feel I can meet
any challenge," stated Lynn
I. Rebello, a former Day
Camp director, leader and
girl and adult Girl Scout.
Pam Fleege, Ph.D., Ex-
ecutive Director of Early
Education and Care, Inc,
credits Girl Scouting with
giving her lifetime skills to
use. "I am always prepared
because of Girl Scouting,"
Fleege said.
Pamela Medlock Bout-
well of Jackson County was
an assistant leader, leader,
trainer and staff member. "I
started out with my daugh-
ter in Brownies because this
was something we could
do together. We continued
on through my daughter
earning her Gold Award as
a Senior Girl Scout," Bout-
well stated.
"The Girl Scout Gold
Award is the highest award


a Girl Scout age 14-18
may earn. Girl Scouts re-
ally helps girls to become
empowered. The empow-
erment and leadership de-
velopment they get through
Girl Scouting comes from
seeing other women making
a mark on the world because
they are willing to get out
and volunteer," she said.
In observance of Girl
Scouts' 95th Anniversary
on March 12 and Girl Scout
Week March 11-17, many
more activities are planned.
To RSVP for the reception,
please contact Dawn Lavoie,
Membership Marketing
Consultant, at (850) 873-
