Save Sand Hill Lakes meets


Organization opposes well drilling plan


JAY FELSBERG

afelsberg@chipleypaper.com
EBRO More than
100 people were on hand
Thursday night as Save
Sand Hill Lakes held an
informational meeting for
members at the Ebro Com-
munity Center and City
Hall, as the organization
continues its opposition to
a plan to drill water wells in
northern Bay County.


SSHL includes a num-
ber of private citizens, in-
cluding landowners in the
Sand Hills area of south
Washington County and
northern Bay County, the
Bay County Audubon So-
ciety, the Florida Audubon
Society and the James L.
Knight Trust.
The organization was
formed to oppose a plan
by the Bay County Board
of County Commissioners
before the Northwest Flor-


ida Water Management
District that would call for
drilling 10 water wells to
serve as a backup for Deer
Pont Lake, the primary wa-
ter supply for Bay County.
The wells are just south of
Washington County.
The Knight Trust and
the Washington County
Board of County Commis-
sioners filed petitions to
block a planned hearing

afelsberg@chipleypaper.com

TALLAHASSE The third-grade
portion of the Florida Comprehen-
sive Assessment Test/Sunshine
State Standards scores showed
that county third-graders on aver-
age scored above the state aver-
age, as well as showed improve-
ment over 2009.
Washington County students
showed a six-point improvement
on reading scores and a two-point
improvement in math scores com-
pared with 2009.
In math, the state average
released by the Florida Depart-
Sment of Education was 78 percent
achievement for Level 3 or above.
FCAT has five levels of achieve-
ment. The state average was 9 per-
cent at Level 1, 13 percent at Level
2, 32 percent at Level 3, 30 percent
at Level 4 and 15 percent at Level 5,
the highest level of achievement.
Washington County's 263 third-
graders who took FCAT Mathe-
matics scored 9 percent at Level 1,
11 percent at Level 2, 36 percent at
Level 3, 32 percent at Level 4 and
13 percent at Level 5, with 80 per-
cent of students scoring at Level 3
or above.
In 2009, Washington County
third-graders scored 78 percent in
math, equal to the state average.
In reading, the state average
was 72 percent of students scoring
at Level 3 or above, with 16 percent
at Level 1, 12 percent at Level 2, 33
percent at Level 3, 31 percent at
Level 4 and 8 percent at Level 5.
Washington County third-grad-
ers scored 12 percent at Level 1,
9 percent at Level 2, 36 percent at
Level 3, 37 percent at Level 4 and
6 percent Level 5, with 79 percent
of students scoring at Level 3 or
above.
In 2009, students scored 73 per-
cent, two points above the state
average.
The superintendent and school
board members praised the ac-
complishments before Chipley
High School's graduating class last
week.
"Congratulations to the faculty,
staff, parents and students for a
job well done," Superintendent Dr.
Sandra Cook said.
"These are excellent results,
and everyone should be proud of
having achieved them," School
Board President Vann Brock said.
"The results show that the hard
work of everyone involved in FCAT
paid off," School Board member
Terry Ellis said.
"That's awesome," School
Board member Susan Roberts
said. "Congratulations to our stu-
dents and teachers."

Kiwanis Club hears about Healthy Start


SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

CHIPLEY At the weekly club
luncheon on June 1, the Kiwanis
Club heard John West of Chipola
Healthy Start present a summary
of information about the program.
Healthy Start is a public-pri-
vate partnership that focuses on
improving infant mortality and
low birth weight babies in Holmes,
Washington, Jackson, Calhoun
and Liberty counties. It partners
with county health departments to
provide risk screening and prena-
tal services to low income moth-
ers.
The Florida Legislature cre-
ated the Healthy Start Program in
1991 as a way to address Florida's
high infant mortality rate. Chipola
Healthy Start was established in
1993.
West presented a number of
statistics affecting Healthy Start
programs provided from state
sources:
*One in eight babies, or about


500,000 each year is born prema-
ture in the U.S. Of those, about
28,000 die in their first year of life.
*The U.S. ranks 33rd in the
world in infant mortality. Florida
ranks 29th among the states.
*Nationally, 8.1 percent of
births are premature while coun-
ties in the Chipola H.S. region
range from 13-17 percent.
*The counties served by Chipo-
la Healthy Start have higher than
state averages for low birth weight
babies. Lack of pre-natal care is a
contributing factor for low birth-
weight babies.
Other factors can also affect
the health of the baby, West said.
*Underweight mothers are 72
percent more likely to miscarry.
Obese mothers are 48 percent
more likely to have an overweight
child. In Washington County, 18.5
percent of mothers are under-
weight and 18 percent are obese.
*The age of the mother can
also be a factor in the birth. The
percentage of teen pregnancies


(age 15-19) ranges from 14 to 22
percent in Holmes, Washington
and Jackson counties. Births for
mothers ages 10-14 are also rising.
Key issues for mothers in these
age groups are low self-esteem
and lack of a father for the child,
West said.
*In Washington County, 42 per-
cent of mothers are unwed.
Smoking increases risks for
newborns in many categories.
This is true whether the mother
smokes or is exposed to second-
had smoke. In Washington County,
21.3 percent of mothers are smok-
ers.
West made the point that if
smoking and other drugs were
eliminated, infant mortality and
low birth-weight problems would
drop dramatically.
Waiting 18-23 months after
birth to have the next child is best
for the subsequent baby's health.
This amount of time allows the
mother's body to recover from the
first birth.


Several presentations were
also made during the meeting.
Zedra Hawkins, Children's Li-
brarian at the Washington Coun-
ty received a check from the Del
Corbin of the Kiwanis Sponsored
Youth Committee for the Sum-
mer Reading Program. Registra-
tion for the reading program be-
gins June 3. The Reading Store
will be open and children in the
Summer Reading Program can
receive a "Library Buck" for ever
100 minutes of reading. They
can purchase items in the Store
and be entered in a drawing for
prizes.
Washington-Holmes Techni-
cal Center received two checks.
The first was from the Club
Scholarship Committee for the
WHTC Foundation Scholarship
program. Thirty-one students
receive scholarships from the
WHTC Foundation.
The second check was from
the Sponsored Youth Committee
in support of Skills USA, a com-


petition in which WHTC students
compete in the skills they have
learned at WHTC.
Finally, David Solger, chair-
man of the membership commit-
tee, inducted Jeff Goodman as a
new member of the club. Good-
man was sponsored by Wayland
lilford. Goodman is an attorney
who opened his law office recent-
ly in Chipley
The next fund raising event
will be the 55th Annual Kiwanis
Pancake Breakfast on June 10 at
Kate Smith Elementary School
from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m.
The club meets Tuesdays
at Pattillo's Restaurant in the
middle of the Washington-Hol-
mes Technical Center (WHTC)
at noon.
For an invitation to lunch, con-
tact any Kiwanian or call Mark
Collins, membership chairper-
son, at 850-258-9453.

to introduce expert testi-
mony.
George Wilson of Wil-
son Consulting LLC of
Tallahassee, a consultant
to the Knight Trust, noted
that the wells are on St.
Joe Co. land, and that led
to verbal speculation by
several of those present
that the plan was to drill
for water to sell to hous-
ing developers around
the new international
airport.
Wilson said that the plan
was inconsistent with the
section of the Bay County
Comprehensive Plan for
Sand Hills and that there
have been no proper stud-
ies of the possible effect
of the well plan, adding,
"we can't reduce the wa-
ter level of the Sand Hills
lakes."
Eric Draper, executive
director of the Florida
Audubon Society, noted
that similar well plans
were used in other parts
of Florida resulting in se-
rious damage to ecosys-
tems. He also said that the
plan was developed using
state alternative water
supply funding to develop
use of surface water and
other sources.
"Never did we think
that the water manage-
ment district would take
that funding and use it in
exactly the opposite way
it was intended," Draper
said.
"Throughout the state
of Florida, water utili-
ties are trying to grab the
money from water; that's
how local government
makes money. It's a water


grab."
Dr. Bruce Means, pres-
ident and executive direc-
tor of the nonprofit Coast-
al Plains Institute and
Land Conservancy and an
adjunct professor at Flor-
ida State University, de-
scribed the area affected
by the well plan as being
home to numerous unique
plant and wildlife species.
Means said the area had
"the highest biodiversity
in the United States and
Canada, including 2,197
unique plant species and
87 reptile species, includ-
ing several recently dis-
covered.
"There are a number of
regions there with species
found there and nowhere
else," Means said. "We
are desperately trying to
understand the ecosystem
before it is lost to us."
Means gave an over-
view of the area's features,
including steepheads,
tree-laden "valleys" that
actually migrate and have
up to 35 species of trees
in one area, "the most in
such a region in the Unit-
ed States," Mears said.
Mears also noted that
endangered species such
as the federally protected
flatwood salamander is
"hanging on by its toes."
He also emphasized the
importance of the crystal-
clear water of the area for
animal and plant life.
"It's a brief overview
of the biodiversity we all
own," Means said.
Local landowner Bill
Gunter noted the drop in
water levels at local lakes
and said that after several
years of drought, the lev-
els have not come back up
and are much more seri-
ously threatened by the
well plan.
"Folks, this is serious,"
Gunter said. Gunter said
that a 3-foot drop in the
water level at Lucas Lake,
for example, would actu-
ally be a 65-foot drop into
the lake bottom.
Neal Lamb, director of
the Bay County Audubon
Society and a Sand Hills
landowner, criticized the
planners of the well sys-
tem for not keeping the
public properly informed
and for "the stealthy way
this was done."
"We need to keep them
honest," he said.

on the well plan before the
NWFWMD set for April 22.
The plan is being reviewed
by a special administra-
tive law judge in Tallahas-
see, according to attorney
Edward Cole of the Aker-
man Senterfitt law firm in
Tallahassee representing
the Knight trust. Cole said
the petition against the
well plan is based on two
issues.
"Bay County does not
need the water," Cole
said. He said that the ca-
pacity of Deer Point Lake
is 97 million gallons of
water a day, and that Bay
County uses only half that.
Cole also said that the Bay
County BOCC has "never
substantiated" its claim
that it needs the new wells
as an emergency supply.
Cole said the other is-
sue was the possibility of
destroying many unique
ecosystems in the area,
"on my client's land,

Busch to set new mark


Kyle Busch will make his
200th NASCAR Sprint Cup
Series start on Sunday in the
Gillette Fusion ProGlide 500
presented by Target at Pocono
Raceway.
In doing so, at 25 years, one
month and four days, Busch
will become the youngest driv-
er in series history to reach start
No. 200.


The previous youngest was
Brian Vickers, at 25 years, 11
months and three days at
Dover International Speedway
back on Sept. 27, 2009.
Vickers has been sidelined
for the remainder of this season
as he is being treated for a
blood clotting condition that is
requiring him to take blood
thinners.


Red Bull Racing swaps teams


Red Bull Racing Team
officials announced the
swap of crew chiefs and sup-

the No. 82 and No. 83
Toyotas, effective immedi-
ately.
"Due to the circum-
stances of our current situa-
tion, we have an opportunity
to experiment with different
personnel combinations,"
said Jay Frye, Red Bull


Racing Team General
Manager and Vice President.
Driver Scott Speed is
paired with crew chief Ryan
Pemberton, and driver
Casey Mears with crew
chief Jimmy Elledge.
Elledge previously
worked with Mears at Chip
Ganassi Racing from 2003-
2005, earning two poles,
four top-fives and 18 top-10
finishes.


Richard Jackson passes at 74


Former NASCAR team
owner Richard Jackson
passed away Monday
evening. Jackson, who field-
ed cars from 1975 to 2001 in
the NASCAR Winston Cup
Series and NASCAR Busch
Grand National Series, was
74.
Jackson was born on
March 31, 1937 in Asheville,
NC. Racing and race cars
were always a passion of
Richard's, and he and brother
Leo Jackson Jr. built their
first racer when Richard was
18.
They raced the car
through the mid- 1950's at the
McCormick Field baseball
stadium in Asheville, NC.


In the fall of 1974, broth-
ers Richard, and Leo Jr.,
formed Precision Products
Racing.
The team competed in the
NASCAR Late Model
Sportsman Division, which
later became the NASCAR
Busch Series, and then the
NASCAR Nationwide
Series.
The team's first season of
racing was in 1975 with
driver Bob Pressley (father
of former NASCAR driver
Robert Pressley and grandfa-
ther to NASCAR
Nationwide Series driver
Coleman Pressley) behind
the wheel. The team won its
first races.

Volume 3 Number 5 Washington County, Florida June-July 2010


Washington County Cities and Towns:


Focus on Wausau & Chipley


The weak economy has made
life difficult for everyone the last few
years. A small, rural county seems to
feel the effects more profoundly.
I recently spoke with several
local municipalities to see how they
are weathering these challenging
economic times.
This issue will feature responses
from the cities of Chipley and
Wausau. The August Advocate
will focus on Caryville, Vernon and
Ebro.
The City of
Chipley's population
of 3,554 has not
changed much over
the past several
years. Chipley is
one of two county
municipalities that
offer both water
and sewage to its
residents; Vernon is Ted Everett
residensExecutive
the other. Director
Chipley is the
only municipality to have its own
police department. It also has a paid
fire department.
Wausau has a population of 434
and offers only water hookups to its
citizens.
Sewage is handled through
individual property septic tanks.
Wausau relies on Washington
County for its public safety through
the Sheriff's Department. It also has
a volunteer fire department.

* .~ A


Chipley is among many cities facing tough decisions at budget time.


CHIPLEY
The City of Chipley faced some
tough decisions regarding services at
budget time. I recently talked with
Chipley City Administrator Dan
Miner about the revenue challenges
the City is experiencing and the
plans for its future, including the
south side of the 1-10 overpass.
There is a lot of growth on the
north side of the Interstate but not
the south side due to unavailability
of sewer and water.


First of a Two-Part
Series

Miner said he would like to
see a design plan created that
concentrated on the placement
of services when there is the
opportunity to do so. This would
allow Chipley to be ahead of the
curve when the services are ready to
be placed on the south side of I-10.


However, funding is needed
to get that infrastructure to the
south side of I-10. In order to get
a Community Development Block
Grant (CBDG), which specifically
targets a municipality's infrastructure
needs, the City of Chipley would
first need to contract with a business
that required water and sewer
services on the south side of I-10.
This expensive process would

At the May 2010 Third
Thursday, our speaker, State Rep.
Brad Drake, spoke about what
he and the
Legislators have
been working on
in Tallahassee.
He went through
all the bills that
he had sponsored
and co-sponsored.
As I sat and
listened it was easy
to see where Rep. Andy Fleener
Drake stood on
several issues that were important to
the Chamber and me.
As a State Legislator in this
technological world, we can easily


As the school year winds
down and families begin to think
about their vacations, we at the
Washington County Chamber of
Commerce are
just catching our
breath. It has been
a rather hectic three
months beginning
with our annual
Banquet in April
and ending with
our Membership
Drive in June. I Ted Everett
must comment
on the good work of the Staff, the
Ambassadors and the Chamber
Board. Thank you all for your hard
work and support over the last few
months.
As I look around, I see the
upcoming months will have plenty
of issues to address. There is
the issue of the proposed water


track how he agrees or disagrees
with our views.
Rep. Drake spoke a lot about
repealing laws that are on the books
that have no meaning as well as
faith in schools including prayer. He
thinks it is important to repeal laws
that no longer have value.
Rep. Drake also thought it
was important that someone take
a common-sense approach and
stand up for student-led prayer and
teachers having faith rights in the
school system.
We all need to be more aware
of the job our elected officials are
doing at all times other than election
years. Quite frankly, I agreed with
the majority of our Representative's


wells Bay County is planning to
drill. This issue will have large
consequences for Washington
County and I am not sure that
everyone knows exactly what and
how serious those consequences
will be for our County. I hope that
the process will be slowed down
and that Washington County will
receive more and better information
on these proposed wells.
Of specific interest is the oil spill.
The spill that has occurred will
have a large impact on the Gulf of
Mexico for a long time, resulting
in the possible forced shut-down of
affected businesses. The spill will
be sure to bring out people who
will argue against oil drilling just as
it will bring out those who say we
must continue to drill in order to
feed America cheap and plentiful
fuel that ultimately drives most
aspects of our economy.


comments.
As informed voters, it is our duty
to research elected officials positions
and hold them accountable
throughout their elected terms.
Too many times we do not express
our rights as Americans to agree or
disagree with the job our officials
are accomplishing.
Take time to write, email or
call your City Council, County
Commissioner, State Representative,
Governor, Senator, Congressman,
and even the President of the
United States to express your
RIGHTS as United States citizens.
Otherwise you cannot truly
have fulfilled your rights in the
government you ultimately elect.


This argument will be long and
bitter, but in the end I believe there
will have to be a compromise.
Both sides of the argument have
valid points. It may be that this
catastrophic spill will finally force
the legislators to come to real terms
with this issue.
We all realize that the Gulf
Coast's beautiful beaches drive a
large part of our tourist economy.
It is also the cheap and plentiful fuel
that allows the tourists to come and
spend their money here. This will
be a tough answer to find and it will
be even tougher for one side or the
other to compromise.
Yes, the issues are always there
and because of them, we will be
busy here at the Chamber, giving
to you the best information that we
can to keep you informed and allow
you to make your own decisions on
issues which affect all of us.

2010-2011 State Legislative wrap up


Florida lawmakers faced an
uphill battle at the beginning
of this year's legislative session
with an estimated $3 billion
dollar revenue
shortfall to
overcome ,
while keeping
their promises a
not to raise
taxes. As the
final hours
of the session
came to a close la
it was obvious Gary Clark
there were
going to be many program and
budget cuts and that business as
usual was not the case.
With the exception of a few
new limited sources of revenue
the outcome looked bleak.
Fortunately, the legislature saw
the need and placed a priority


on job creation and business
expansion as a tool to grow
state revenues and as the best
way to recover Florida's failing
economy.
Economic Development was
a priority and in spite of the
dwindling revenues the 2010-
2011 economic development
budget allocations remained
strong and in place.
The final budget allocations
for Fiscal Year 2010-2011 are as
follows:
*Transportation Road Fund--
- ,'' 1 00,000
*Quick Action Closing Fund-
-81,000,000

Thinking regionally has become
a trend for many organizations and
counties across the state of Florida in
the last couple of years. Due to the
economy and the competitiveness in
receiving government grants many
areas are deciding to pool their
resources to
accomplish their
goals.
Washington
County is no
different. The
Washington
County Tourist
Development
Council has Heather Lopez
recentlyjoined Administrative
forces with Assistant
both Tourist
Development Councils from Holmes
andJackson counties in two regional
projects.
The first project is to develop a
day-trip program that will span the
three counties. All three TDCs will
be establishing sub-committees made
up of their Council members and


representatives from the Holmes
County Development Commission, to
meet and discuss how to bring their
plans to fruition.
Basically, the project would pull
tourists and snowbirds from area
beach destinations, including Panama
City Beach, Destin, and Fort Walton
Beach.
This is the easiest market to target
since the beach destinations have
already advertised to bring visitors to
the area for vacation.
After the project gets off the
ground, plans to draw niche groups
and other feeder markets will be
developed.
If your business qualifies as an
agribusiness or ecotourism based
business and you are interested in
becoming a part of the day trip
program, please call our office at 850-
638-6013.
The second project is the joining
of RiverWay South- Apalachicola, a
Florida charter, to RiverWay South
out of Columbus, Ga. Georgia and
Alabama started the regional river


program.
Florida was involved as the
Ch(: 1i.1 ..l... I. and Flint River
systems became the Apalachicola
River.
This regional group is composed
of six riparian counties along the
Apalachicola River basin. Washington
and Holmes counties have been
asked to join the effort so all the
Choctawhatchee River basin can be
included.
A name change is in the process to
help incorporate the new river basin
into the organization. The mission is
to develop rural tourism in all eight
counties and market it as a single
destination.
A grant has been proposed to
Office of Touristm to fund a project
manager who work with all counties
to determine their strengths and
weaknesses. Also, an interactive web
site is being developed that will feature
information on all eight counties.

South visit their website at www.

GROWTH
Continued
from Page 1
then require the
improved property be
annexed into the city
limits of Cl(:q.! This,
in turn, would add
revenue to its tax base
and ultimately help pay
for the services to all of
its citizens.
Another goal the
City is pursuing is
applying for a CBDG to
cover the replacement
of water lines east of
Old Bonifay Road, as
well as Martin Luther
King Boulevard and
Bennett Drive.
The lines that


need to be replaced
are old and much
smaller than what is
currently up to code.
If the City is successful
in its application,
then the northeast
side of Chipley will
acquire some needed
improvements.

WAUSAU
The Town of
Wausau has not
experienced much
growth either over
the last decade. It
has previously and
continues to apply
for grants that
would make some
needed infrastructure
improvements.


According to
Wausau Mayor Roger
Dale Hagan, work on
the new city water well
will be completed by
the end of 2010. This
project was funded by
a CBDG as well. The
new well is located at
the new Emergency
Management Center
on Pioneer Road.
This well will greatly
improve water services
in Wausau.
Hagan also said
there will be a new
recreational facility
coming soon to
Wausau. This facility
is grant-funded and
will include a new
skateboard park for


kids.
Recreation
facilities are essential
components of any
community and provide
a safe place to play and
have fun.
As many are aware,
the annual Fun Day
and Possum Festival
is a major social and
financial event for the
Town of Wausau.
Revenue generated
from the event could be
anywhere from $7,000
to $10,000, according
to Hagan. Of course,
these figures vary
each year, with a large
increase during the
political season. This
year Possums should


bring a good price.
The funds raised
from this Festival
go right back to
the community for
improvements and
development as well as
educational scholarships
for students in the
community.
Although things
are tough for many, it
is important to note
that our communities,
as well as the County
government, are doing
all they can to obtain
grants and other
funding that will allow
our towns and cities to
grow and prosper.
