Bonifay 1720 S Waukesha Street (850) 547-2260 Chipley 1044 Hwy. 90 East (850) 638-8376 Wednesday, SE P TEMBER 21 2011 Volume 88, Number 45 By Steve Liner Managing Editor sliner@chipleypaper.com Three suspects, all from Louisiana, were arrested following an investigation into a vehicle burglary last week. Ofcer Michael Richter of the Chipley Police De partment responded to a call following a vehicle bur glary at a local gas station. Richter immediately con ducted an investigation into the incident. He viewed the businesss security video, which showed the suspects stealing a womans purse from her car, according to police reports. Richter be gan searching for the sus pects, and within a short period of time had located the suspects and their ve hicle, his report indicated. After identifying the sus pects from the security video, Richter conducted a trafc stop of the suspects: Ebon Linton 23, Jeremy Linton, 19, and Gontacha Williams, 26, all of Baton Rouge, La. All three were arrested following the stop. All property was recovered and returned to the owner, reports show. Through hard work and commitment, we were able to identify, locate and take into custody these subjects from Louisiana, said Chipley Police Chief Kevin Crews. The Chi pley Police Department remains committed to the apprehension of those who choose to come into our city and commit crimes that affect those who live here. Close proximity to the interstate provides a prime opportunity for criminals passing through our city to commit crimes and then depart the area quickly. Through the co operation of the public and local businesses, we are able to work together to deter and apprehend criminals in our area. Charges were Ebon Linton, driving while li cense suspended or re voked; Jeremy D. Linton, burglary of an unoccupied conveyance and petit theft; and Gontacha Monique Williams, principle to bur glary of an unoccupied conveyance. Vernon man charged with producing meth By Steve Liner Managing Editor sliner@chipleypaper.com Joshua Lee Bryant, 21, of Vernon was arrested on charges of production of meth amphetamine and possession of listed chemicals on Sept. 7, following a trafc stop in Chipley. Bryant was stopped by Washington County Drug Task Force investigators, consisting of the Chipley Police De partment and Washington County Sheriffs Ofce, for a trafc violation. Investigators conducted a search of Bryants vehicle, where they said they found a portable methamphetamine lab in the oorboard of the passengers compartment of the vehicle. Bryant also was found to be in possession of chemicals for the manufac ture of methamphetamine. An investiga tion led investigators to believe Bryant was in the process of obtaining the remaining ingredients to produce more methamphet amine. Bryant was placed under arrest and transported to the Washington County Jail. Methamphetamine continues to plague our communities, said Chipley Police Chief Kevin Crews. This drug destroys the lives of our family and friends and seems to be a preferred drug to the younger genera tion. I encourage anyone with information of criminal activity to contact the Chipley Police Department. Special to the News Technically at least, Washing ton Countys unemployment rate dipped by two-tenths of a percent between July and August, from 11.2 percent to 11 percent. But in real life terms, there was virtually no change, according to of cials at the Florida Department of Workforce Innovation, who pointed out that the number of unemployed workforce members remained al most totally unchanged. There were 41 additional jobs in the service and retail sectors, at least a hint of better days to come. Even so, the countys workforce reduced by more than 700, gures show, as prospective employees leave the job market or the county to seek work. Washington County has the highest unemployment level in the central Panhandle. Neighbor ing Holmes County had an August unemployment rate of 8.3 percent, down from 8.5 percent in July. The statewide rate dropped last month by one-tenth of a percent to 10.9, leading Gov. Rick Scott to say, The August job numbers prove that when you reduce the size, scope and cost of government, it allows the private sector jobs to grow. For every job lost in the pub lic sector, Florida gained two jobs in the private sector. There is still a long road ahead, but by remov ing the red tape that restricts eco nomic development, we are on the right path to getting Florida back to work. The addition of more than 71,000 jobs since the beginning of the year is positive news for all Floridians and businesses and is a potent re minder that by making tough choic es, we are doing the right things to turn the economy around. Washington County accounts for 57 of those jobs. 3 charged in vehicle burglary GONTACHA WILLIAMS JEREMY D. LINTON EBON D.

Thats what happened Thursday to the Washington County Commission. The commissioners were there. The county staff was there. The public was not, despite the fact that each taxpayer had received writ ten notice of the hearing. Only a single private citizen attended the hearing, and she did not speak. Nevertheless, other than taking public comments which were not forthcoming, it took the commission about seven minutes to complete the hearings required work. Based on tentative decisions (they cannot be nalized until the nal public hearing on the budget is con ducted and concluded), the Washing ton County budget for the scal year beginning October 1 will be almost 21 percent less than the current years spending plan. The commission unanimously ap proved the tentative millage rate of 8.9195, the same as last year. Im just gad we kept the millage rate (the same). Said Commissioner Todd Abbott. Based on that millage rate, the countys tax income for the new s cal year will be slightly more than $33 million. Passage of the tentative millage rate and budget were both unanimous. I would like to thank all the depart ment heads and others who helped prepare this budget, said Commis sioner Charles Brock. The nal hearing is set for Sep tember 27, just before the new budget takes effect. The following arrests were made Sept. 5-12 in Washington County.

The dry cleaning and laundry business owner had to rush back to work to prepare some uniforms for a morning pick up. He and his employees were working into the night because they have found they use 38 per cent less electricity if they can do most of their cleaning after sunset. Last year, the Cottondale resident who operates his business in Bonifay, said he paid $19,000 to Gulf Power in utility costs. At the current electricity prices, he strug gled nancially and closed a location in Chipley, laying off two employees. If Gulf Pow er is granted the base rate increase it has requested that would increase power bills by $12.15 for every 1,000 kilowatt hours used, Porter said he and the utility com panys other 428,000 custom ers will face some very dif cult decisions. Its virtually impossible to see how my little opera tion in Bonifay ... how were going to survive, he said. The money is just not there in America today to do what Gulf Power is asking us to do. When Gulf Power led to raise rates this summer, they cited huge increases in the cost of doing business since the last time they raised their base rate in 2002. The base rate is used to fund the daily operations of the com pany including poles, wires, customer service locations and repair costs. Power bills have gone up since the last time the base rate increased, but it was largely a result of increases in the cost of fuel, which Gulf Power passes along to its customers at cost, spokesperson Jeff Rog ers said. But consumers are facing the same rising costs, cus tomer after customer point ed out at the public hearing in the main ballroom of Holi day Inn Select on Martin Lu ther King Boulevard. Joyce Fox said she hasnt had a raise in three years, and she has to cope with climbing prices too. Every time we are about to make ends meet, someone moves the end, she said. An interim rate increase of $38.5 million, $4.49 per month for the typical user, went into effect in August, but the Public Service Com mission still has to make a ruling on the increase in its entirety. If it is rejected, the interim increase would have to be refunded to customers with interest, public counsel J.R. Kelly said. Kelly, who is employed by the state to represent the rate payers in utility is sues, said he will be ghting against the increase and has discovered several items he will object to in court. For in stance, he said, the increase would move the utility com panys prot margin from 6 percent to 11 percent, an amount Kelly called entire ly excessive in the current economy; a huge increase to the storm damage reserve fund; and the amassing of $27 million for the possible construction of a nuclear power plant some time in the future. Gulf Power has made returns to its shareholders every year, utility spokes woman Sandy Sims said. To ensure continued interest in the stock, Gulf Power is under pressure to continue providing high returns. If re turns diminish and interest in the stock declines, Sims said customers will have to shoulder more of the cost of providing electricity. Gulf Power proposes rate increase Arrest REPORT

Several weeks ago, my friend Joe Earl Collins, retired Chipley High School chemistry teacher, inquired about the early history of Bethel Primitive Baptist Church. He was especially interested in who donated the original land for the church building and cemetery and the names of some of the people who might have lived in the immediate area at that time. The prattler is aware that the Brackin Family, who owned the adjoining property to Bethel Church in my earliest memory, is related closely to Joe Earls family. His great aunt, Rebecca (Becky) Collins Brackin, was living as a widow on the property just down the hill from the church in 1942 when James Thomas (Tom) Collins, wife, Pearl Rice Collins and two sons, Mack and Tom Alex moved from Malvern, Ala., to live on and farm the Brackin land. Later, Vivian J. (V.J.) Collins and wife, Lote Merritt Collins, accompanied by two young children, Joe Earl and Annie Myrel, along with two work mules, Pet and Babe, joined the other family members by moving to Florida in 1945. After rst owning his own farm, V. J. Collins and family later moved to the Brackin Ranch upon V.Js fathers retirement. Sen. Newman Brackin, Sr. had his cousin move to the ranch and manage the expanded operation. This included producing Black Angus, Brahman and Hereford cattle on the acreage, and using hay produced on the land supplemented by the improved pastures for grazing. The impressive twostory frame construction Brackin house was still standing tall and strong when the younger Collins family moved onto the property. They remained there until the death of V. J. and Lote. All that is left of the old home now are the two towering chimneys. Attending church at Bethel was a must for the neighboring Collins, even though none of them ever united with the congregation as members. Stories of the Brackin and Collins families, the history of Bethel Primitive Baptist Church and many of the families with long records of membership at the church, are contained in the Heritage of Washington Book, released in 2006. Matthew T. Brackin married Rebecca (Becky) Collins as his third wife and brought his young family to the homestead land in Washington County. After the death of Matthew, Becky moved into Bonifay in order for her children to attend school there. Her son, Newman, became a rst string player on Bonifays rst football team. He worked for the H. B. Douglas drug store as a soda jerk prior to serving as an apprentice pharmacist under Mr. Douglas. Newman became a licensed pharmacist upon completing schooling in Atlanta and opened Brackin Drug Store in Crestview. Later, he became State Senator in Okaloosa County. It is reported that the Brackin property was conveyed to them by the Allen Family and that the mammoth two story home was already under construction when the purchase was made. Minutes of Bethel Primitive Baptist Church show that A. W. Allen was received by that body for church membership by letter on May 24, 1890. It is not shown where he was transferring from. On that date, he was appointed as a delegate to the General Meeting to be held at Bethel Church that same weekend. Later notations in the church record, report A. W. Allen as offering public prayer in the worship service and serving as moderator, pro tem at one conference. His wife was received by letter into church membership at a later date. Charles G. Allen, who served as sheriff of Washington County from 1893-1901 and from 19041913, is reportedly from this family. My brother, Jim Wells, one year my senior, conrms my memory of two or three elaborate, top of the ground, mammoth tombstone, then in a poor state of repair, being in place at Bethel Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery and being identied to us as the graves of the Allen Family members, who once owned the Brackin property. Somewhere along the way, these broken and dilapidated grave markers were removed from their southwest corner of the cemetery and no one seems to recall when nor why they disappeared. One theory is that the sites were never used for burials and removing them allowed for others to be buried there. Joe Earl Collins is aware that his Brackin ancestors proved to be extremely benevolent in conveying additional land for the Bethel Cemetery as the need arose. He does not know if the Allens may have been the rst contributors in allowing for the church building and the cemetery, which only a title search of that era, would reveal. Collins agrees that some death dates recorded on tombstones in the old cemetery pre date the May 7, 1887 founding of the Church. Water was provided for church meetings from a giant, long handle, manually operated pump situated on the church grounds. Separate outdoor toilet facilities were provided for the men and the ladies. Hitching arrangements were plentiful for the horse drawn buggies and wagons which transported throngs of people to associational meetings and Sacred Harp Sings. The care and upkeep of the cemetery at Bethel Primitive Baptist Church, known to be 124 years old, probably rates higher, than comparable burial grounds. It is encouraging to observe Joe Earl Collins, and present younger church members, take an interest in the upkeep and general appearance of the cemetery grounds. Mr. Collins wife, Eileen Pipkin Collins, who died a year ago, is buried at Bethel, as is her Pate and Pipkin kin. He has recently attended to some repairs to these aging markers. See you all next week. Bethel Primitive Baptist Church history SP E C I A L TO T HE N EWS Elder Carlton W. Todd served as pastor at Bethel from 1941 to his death in 1998, a total of 57 years of the churchs 124 years of continuous service. PERRYS PRA TTLE Perry Wells Dear Editor: The political charges and claims are coming at us from all directions. It is now time to inject some truth, facts and reality into this storm of claims. However, we must factually dene democratic government as we know it. Our governments only function is protection for our physical selves, freedom, democracy, and economic justice. It provides a protective military, law enforcement, and regulations that protect our rights and economic security. Big government means big protections. Now we must dene freedom, as we know it. God given freedom is a common claim among us all, a true claim. However, the republicans claim that we have no freedoms except those that are given to us by some authority over us. The democrats go along with God given that we have all freedoms except that which has been prohibited or regulated by the people, collectively, through their representatives to our protective government. Now we must truthfully dene job which seems to be the center of our political conict right now. Newt Gingrich gave us that denition during the Tea Party gathering this week in Tampa. He said people create jobs, a very true and easily understandable statement. People are the consumers that drives our economy, and their demands for goods and services is what makes jobs possible. Entrepreneurs only take advantage of this demand for their prots. No one is going to sell any goods or services that the public does not want. So, now, let us do a little truth in politics. Small Government means small, or weak protection for us all. Government runs on taxes, and low taxes means weak, or small, government, weak or no protection for us all. The denition of job says that government and politicians cannot create jobs except where consumer demands are satised. Government jobs (employees) are necessary to provide the our protections of government, and government provided national infrastructure. Government cannot mandate that we buy goods that we do not want just so a capitalist can make prots. All of our laws (regulations) have been created with the good intention that they protect us and our way of life in some way. Less government quite factually is a plea to take away some or all of these protections. Now let us dene something else, anarchy. Anarchy is a condition of absolute freedom, without protection, every man for himself, individually and separately. The short path to tyranny as the meanest, strongest, and best organized simply walks in and creates dictatorship, unopposed by anyone except individuals. We can never allow this to happen in our society. It is a condition that existed and disappeared thousands of years ago, and must never be allowed to return. Totalitarian government, the product of anarchy, also must never be allowed to return. I know of no opponent of regulation that ever dened what regulation he is opposed to or how we the people will benet from the demise of any regulation. Let us make our political discourse honest, for the rst time. Freedom must not be wasted by lies. Charles W. Smith Bonifay cwssystems@centurylink.net Its politics time again LETTER TO THE EDITOR Its funny how things change. Fresh from summering on Marthas Vineyard, President Obama is now getting heat from blacks for the shocking increase in their unemployment under his policies. Then we have Dick Cheney promoting his book by showing up on every show on TV in a limo, with bodyguards and a posse, bragging about how he shot a man in the face and got away with it. Cheney might get the BET Rapper of the Year award while Obama is getting heat for not doing enough for blacks. What is interesting is how, under Obama, black unemployment hit a 27-year high last week. Even his loyal supporters are starting to get snippy. Just to add to what Jack Kennedy said, a rising tide does lift all boats, but conversely, when the tide goes out, it crushes those under the boat. We are all hurt by his governments policies of anti-business, increasing regulation and debt-craving controls. Instead of dividing black workers from white, Obama has resisted the temptation to overplay the race card. He is more of a classenvy card player. Just FYI, it aint so great in white America either. From what I can tell by watching TV, the only growing industry is redneck hand-shing. At a loss for anything but spending money on unions and government jobs, Obama has no ability to reduce the AfricanAmerican unemployment rate. Generally, when blacks got mad in the past, politicians would build them a Martin Luther King Jr. statue or name another street after MLK, and all was well. Not any more. Folks are no longer pacied by idle patronizing, which is a good thing. Maybe now we can have a nonracial discussion on how a growing economy helps us all. What can Obama do to help black male unemployment? There is nothing he can do except get out of the way. Yet he will not. Attorney General Eric Holder seems to want to sue businesses over anything; Holders DOJ seems to see race issues everywhere. They also love PC wordsmithing. The presidents smart phone is no longer a BlackBerry. Now its an African-American-Berry. Under Obamas watch, the U.S. bond rating has gone from AAA to AA. As any AA person will tell you, the rst thing you have to do is admit you have problem in order to change your ways. Apparently Obama was not in step with the Twelve-Steppers when he gave his muchanticipated jobs speech, which was full of the same pork stimulus that failed the rst time. The only good shovelready jobs were created by Texas Gov. Rick Perry when his state executed 235 murderers. If you wonder why the rst stimulus never worked, look no further than this example. Our Homeland Security Department had an ofce in a town of 12 people on the Canadian border with Maine; it handled six cars a day. But that wasnt good enough. With at least $16 million in stimulus money, DHS is building a huge ofce in Forest City, Maine to handle the one car every four hours that crosses the border there. The Forest City ofce building is so nice that DHS also created several Homeland Security desk jobs there. They just hope the terrorists respect our honor system by taking the time to come into the ofce and check in when they enter the country illegally and dont forget to enjoy the free espresso and the nice lobby. The jobs bill that Obama is pushing like a used-car dealer trying to move some metal (Pass this bill now!) has more of the same. One CNBC analyst said he thought it would cost $230,000 to $400,000 for each $50,000 job created. At some point, even the most partisan politicians in Washington have to understand that good policies benet us all. In reality, blacks have fared better under Republicans, pretty much from Abraham Lincoln on. We are all in this together and must help businesses in the U.S. grow and compete so we all can work to provide for our families.

Local Washington County News | A5 Wednesday, September 21, 2011 By Felicia Kitzmiller Florida Freedom Newspapers TALLAHASSEE The open ing day of an administra tive hearing challenging Bay County well permits was plagued by legal ambi guity that slowed proceed ings and seems destined to take the case to an appel late court. Bay Countys applica tion for 10 potable water wells to be drilled along the Washington County border is being challenged by Washington County, the Knight family trust and pro se petitioners James Mur phy and Lee Lapenshon. According to Bay County ofcials, the wells are nec essary as a backup water supply if Deer Point Lake somehow was contaminat ed, which is possible in the event of saltwater intrusion from a hurricane or chemi cal spills, either from the road over the dam or from nearby train tracks. The opponents have argued Bay County has not demon strated sufcient need for the wells they fear would draw down the groundwa ter supply along with the Floridan Aquifer, damaging the environment and de creasing property values. The case is the rst to be heard at Floridas Division of Administrative Hearings in Tallahassee under legis lation that went into effect July 1. The new rules shift the burden of proof of envi ronmental impact, or lack thereof, from the applicant to the challenger. However, the new rules left the door open for a dis agreement about the num ber of rebuttals and wit nesses allowed, a disagree ment the judge suggested would have to be resolved at the appellate level. Opening statements Despite the back and forth, both sides did give opening statements Mon day and assistant utilities director Paul Lackem acher took the stand. The days proceedings ended during Lackemachers cross-examination by Bri an Bolves, representing the petitioners. Although no one argues Deer Point Lake will suf ciently meet the potable water demands of Bay County for many years to come, Kenneth Oertel, representing Bay County, outlined the possible dan gers of an above-ground water source. In the 1970s, a train de railed in the area of the lake, releasing chlorine gas. Although the gas did not harm the water supply, trains that follow the same tracks carry chemicals that have the potential to cause such contamination, Lackemacher said. They have decided this risk is unacceptable to Bay County utilities and its customers, Oertel said. Ofcials added that Bay County supplies water for surrounding municipali ties, including two hospi tals, two military instal lations and other entities whose operations would be crucial in an emergency. Though Bay County consistently has said the water supply would be used only in an emergen cy, such a stipulation is nowhere to be found in the permit application, Bolves pointed out. The appli cation only states water withdrawals would be lim ited to an average of 5 mil lion gallons per day, not to exceed 30 million gallons for a length of more than 52 days. On cross-examination, Lackemacher said the 30 million gallons per day was based on his knowl edge and experience and admitted he wanted to get every gallon of water pos sible. Bay County has an average daily water usage of 24.5 million gallons per day with a peak of 40 mil lion gallons per day, but Bolves pointed out the 30 million gallons per day permit request fails to fac tor out the potential for storm evacuations and the curtailing of nonessential water use. John Thomas, an at torney for Washington County, called the permit application an exercise in water banking. If a party is allowed to lock up the rights to water, it interferes with the right of other users that might come along later, Thomas said. The placement of the wells along the border ensures nearly all the ad verse effects, including re ceding water levels at area lakes and the potential for sinkholes, would be almost exclusively in Washington County, Thomas said. The case is expected to last three weeks, and a public hearing tentatively has been scheduled Oct. 18 in Chipley. 306 West Brock Avenue Bonifay, FL (850) 547-9289 Rapid Recovery Program for In-Patient or Out-Patient Rehab Come Take A Virtual Tour www.bonifayrehab.com n Physical, Occupational & Speech Therapy with vital stem available daily n Outpatient Rehabilitation n Stroke Recovery n Cardiac Recovery n Respite Care n Restorative Care Services n Infusion Therapy Services n Advanced Wound Care Services with Specialized Physician on Staff to Oversee Wound Care Therapy n Terminal Care n Respiratory Therapy Services n Pharmaceutical Services n Dietary Services n Patient & Family Educational Services n Pastoral Care Services n Social Services B ONIFAY N URS IN G & REH AB CE N TER 2039597 Admission = FREE Parking = FREE.

As published in the Washington County News September 14 and 21, 2011 By Meridith Kaufman Florida Freedom Newspapers Local chefs are gather ing to lend their support to Childrens Home Soci etys 8th annual Compas sionate Chefs for Kids on Saturday. Its a celebration for those 120 employees serv ing children and families who need us and a cel ebration of those being served, director of de velopment for Childrens Home Society, Erica Spiv ey said. We wanted to gather all those who are supporters, volunteers, champions, cheerlead ers, board members and donors who support us and help us to support the community. More than 20 chefs from the Panama City area will present their sig nature dishes throughout the evening. Some of the restaurants participating are Firefly, Bonefish (on the Beach), Buccaneer, Uncle Ernies, Somethins Cookin and Trigo. The event will raise money and awareness for Childrens Home So ciety because all of the proceeds benefit their programs and work, said event chair and volun teer Krista Barker. But we also want everyone to have a great time because it is a fun event. Barker was very moved by the work that Childrens Home Society provides the community and became a volunteer and board mem ber two years ago. I was just really touched by what they do for children and families, Barker said. I think if you donate to Childrens Home Society you can feel good that your donation is going to help the most vulnerable in our society children. Throughout the eve ning, guests can enjoy live entertainment by Mark Harris and Mojo Rising, local children will be performing as well as the Fred Astaire dancers. There will also be a tes timony given by a family that Childrens Home So ciety has helped during a difficult time. Were also going to be doing something that weve never had to do before, doing a tribute to someone special who re cently passed away, Rusty Hill, Spivey said. He was a champion for us. So Panama City Toyota will be helping present some thing special to his family. And we will be awarding an advocacy all-star award this year as well. Even though this event is celebrating all those who have helped inside and outside of Childrens Home Society, it is also a fundraising event and they hope to raise more than $60,000. Money will be raised through spon sorships and ticket sales. $60,000 is amazing, but some of our programs cost $25,000 to operate a month, so we rely heavily on grants, Spivey said. And with the vulnerabil ity going on with the leg islature, we just want to make sure we can sustain the programs. Compassionate Chefs for Kids will be $35 for general admission and $75 for VIP. It will be held from 6-9 p.m., starting at 5 p.m. for VIPs at the FSU PC Holley Academic Center, on Saturday. For more information, tickets or sponsorships, contact director of devel opment Erica Spivey at 747-5411.

Local Washington County News | A7 Wednesday, September 21, 2011 By Pat Kelly Florida Freedom Newspapers PANAMA CITY One issue that has been giving some Airport Authority board members nightmares is nearing resolution. The Airport Authority board is close to turning the old airport in Panama City over to its new owners, a hurdle to the new airports successful future that board members have been strug gling with for months. At issue is a $130,000 interest payment airport ofcials must make each month on state construc tion loans used to build the airport near West Bay, loans that will be paid off with the nal turnover of the old air port sale to the St. Andrew Bay Land Co. (SABLC), which is holding $56.5 mil lion in escrow until the nal closing. Two of the last remaining stumbling blocks to a suc cessful turnover are nally nearing completion, board Chairman Andy McKenzie said. The Florida Department of Environmental Protec tion recently sent a clear ance letter saying there were no remaining environ mental concerns at some areas of the 700-acre old airport site. Other areas still remain in question at the old facil ity and will determine the nal cleanup price that will be negotiated with the new owners, board attorney Franklin Harrison said. That notice should come within the next three to four weeks after repairs are completed to the sites pas senger terminal building, the last remaining obstacle. That work is now under way and should be complet ed in the next three to four weeks, airport Executive Director John Wheat said. Hundreds of thousands of dollars in environmental credits are at stake in the nal purchase price, and the airport is testing sites for possible contamination in order to determine their size, Wheat said. Their size will determine how much in environmental credits the airport will receive, Wheat said. Once the 30-day notice is issued, the airport and SABLC can negotiate and nalize the level of environ mental credits. Some board members had expressed concerns earlier this year that SA BLC had hoped to delay closing until next year in order to get out of the sale. But Harrison said the air port and SABLC have been in constant contact over the last few weeks to evaluate the remaining environmen tal areas in order to deter mine the level of environ mental credits. The cleanup is essential because SABLC plans a vil lage-type development for the old airport site that will include a mix of residential and multi-use building and open green spaces.

Nationwide, there were an estimated 1.2 million violent crimes re ported to authorities in 2010 and an estimated 9 million property crimes. An aging population, better policing and con tinued high rates of im prisonment for criminals are helping to drive down crime rates, criminolo gists say. Robbery fell 10 per cent, rape dropped 5 per cent, and murder, nonnegligent manslaughter and aggravated assault fell more than 4 percent. Each category of property crime offenses decreased in 2010. The largest decline, 7.4 per cent, was for motor ve hicle thefts. Burglaries decreased 2 percent and larceny-thefts declined 2.4 percent. The last thing we should do is get compla cent and say mission ac complished, and so lets transfer resources away to other areas, said James Alan Fox, a crimi nologist at Northeastern University. You dont solve the crime problem. You only control it. With out sufficient support for policing and crime pre vention, the numbers can go back up. On a related front, he said that law enforcement agencies have targeted gang leadership in com munities in states from Florida to New York, and from Tennessee to North Carolina.

Airport set for new owners F-22 to resume ights By RANDAL YAKEY Florida Freedom Newspapers TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE After more than fourand-a-half months of being grounded, the F-22 Raptor once again will take to the skies. Secretary of the Air Force Michael Donley and Chief of Staff Gen. Norton Schwartz on Monday an nounced an implementation plan developed by Air Com bat Command ofcials that will allow the F-22 Raptor to resume ight operations, according to Air Combat Command ofcials. We now have enough insight from recent studies and investigations that a return to ight is prudent and appropriate, Schwartz said in a news release Mon day. Were managing the risks with our aircrews, and were continuing to study the F-22s oxygen systems and collect data to improve its performance. Air Combat Command ofcials said they developed a comprehensive incre mental return-to-y plan that balances safety and the expedient qualication of pilots against the inher ent risks of ying advanced combat aircraft, ofcials said. Neither the Air Force nor Lockheed Martin has said much over the past few month other than they were investigating the problem. The problem with the F22 oxygen system came to light in November when an F-22 crashed just outside Elmendorf Air Force Base, Alaska, killing the pilot, Capt. Jeff Haney. Air Force ofcials briey halted F-22 ghts out of Elmendorf af ter the crash. The Air Force conrmed a parallel investigation of the on-board oxygen sys tems of the A-10, F-15E, F-16, F-35 and T-6 aircraft, none of which y out of Tyn dall. Tyndall Air Force Base ofcials said other aircraft continue to y to and from the base. Tyndall is the home of the 325th Fighter Wing, whose primary mission is to provide air training for F22 Raptor pilots, as well as maintenance personnel and air battle managers.

The reports from over there are sounding better and better. The water is as clear as a bell, and the redsh and speckled trout are starting to turn on after this last bout of bad weather. The only problem is which way the wind is going to blow. One day they are saying a front isnt going to come through and give us some cooler weather, and then the next thing you hear is it will be in the 60s. It might rain, and then again it might not. Dont worry about the temperature, worry about the direction of the wind. St. Joe Bay lies in a northsouth direction. If the wind blows from the east, it leaves you little choice but to sh the east side, which is not my favorite. If it blows from the west, you are in business. This will keep the west shore wave-free, and that means sight-shing for speckled trout will be very good. If the wind blows from the north, you might as well stay home and watch football because the entire bay will be messed up. To keep from burning a ton of gas, I recommend going to the state park on the west side of the bay and launching. Catch a livewell full of menhaden or choffers, and put someone on the poling platform or drop the electric motor. Just ease down the bank as slowly as possible and sight-sh for trout and redsh. Except for catching speckled trout on topwater, this form of shing for specks is one of the most exciting ways of shing for trout and reds. To actually see the sh, cast to it and then get it to bite is a blast. After you catch your rst one, you will feel like you know something no other sherman knows. The stump hole on the inside of the bay reportedly is full of redsh. A shallow-water boat is needed to sh this area because of the depth. A kayak would be better, but a shallow-riding ats boat also would do the trick if you go at high tide. Free line choffers or menhaden, and dont use any lead. Keep an eye on the wind, because this is a big body of water, and it can become extremely rough.

BAY BOATS By Frank Sargeant franksargeant@bellsouth.net To be sure, no one boat will do it all, but one style comes close. For anglers who sh both the shallows of coastal bays and the green water off the beaches, its hard to beat the vessel that has become known as the bay boat. These are center-console rigs from 17 to 24 feet long; theyre considerably larger than the classic ats boat, which maxes out at 17 feet in most versions, but not nearly as large as most offshore boats, which typically are 24 feet and up. But bay boats have design features other than length that make them so versatile. For one thing, they sport a shallow vee bottom. Combined with relatively light weight, this allows them to run in very shallow water. Though they wont quite match the ankle-deep capability of some ultra-light ats rigs, most bay boats will easily run in just 18 inches of water and can be poled in as little as 12 inches. That means they can do a good job in the pursuit of ats species such as redsh, often found in water less than knee-deep. Bay boats also boast a longer running surface and higher freeboard (distance between the waterline and the gunwale) than ats rigs, which makes them more capable of delivering a smoother, drier ride in rough water. Most ats boats will beat your brains out in a foot-tall chop, but a bay boat with the bow trimmed down can handle three-footers. In good weather with a competent skipper, they can readily take on Panhandle inlets, allowing anglers to get offshore to sh for cobia, kings, Spanish and reef species. The larger size of bay boats also means you can carry a sizable crew families of two adults and three kids t nicely into a 21-footer, while three is denitely a crowd in any ats boat. And the broad beam of most bay rigs allows safe installation of a tower, a great spot from which to look for cobia or tarpon cruising at the surface. Many bay boats also are rigged with hard tops, providing shade at the helm and overhead space for a radio box and life preservers. Bay boats typically weigh between 1,500 and 2,500 pounds, which means they run nicely on a single outboard as small as 150 horses. Particularly with four-strokes or HPDI two-strokes, fuel economy is very good. The light weight also means an electric trolling motor mounted on the bow makes these boats very easy to maneuver when youre sneaking up on sh. Casting decks bow and stern offer lots of space to swing a rod, and all have lots of storage in water-resistant compartments below the decks. Trailering boats in this weight class is not a problem for any medium to fullsized truck with a frame hitch. Theres no need for giant V8-powered tow vehicles and weight-distributing hitches, which are required in towing a big offshore rig. If your interests are more in chasing billsh, dolphin, wahoo and tuna, the bay boat is not for you you need a big, deep, twin-engined offshore rig, and that will cost you plenty. Fortunately, in the Panhandle, there are hundreds of offshore charter boats that can take you out for less than the cost of a monthly payment on an offshore rig and also save you all the maintenance headaches. Unless youre absolutely rabid about shing blue water and have bushels of money to boot its better to rent time aboard a charter instead of having that six-digit monster depreciating in your driveway. A lot of bay boat companies have come and gone in the last few years. My favorite builder for both economy and quality, Sea Pro, sank without a ripple a few years back, but a lot of good used Sea Pros still are around. Many other familiar names still are in business; Ranger, Skeeter, Triton and others build high-end rigs, while Mako available at Tracker/Bass Pro Shops in Destin and Hydra-Sports are medium-priced alternatives. Good used bay boats can be owned for about $15,000, while premium brands new can cost more than $75,000. FRA N K S ARGEA N T | Special to Florida Freedom Above, bay boats like this Ranger are a Panhandle favorite, with shallow draft that allows ats access plus enough length, beam and vee to handle moderate offshore duties in good weather. Renting: an economy angle for the casual boater By Frank Sargeant franksargeant@bellsouth.net The Freedom Boat Club offers a way of having an assortment of boats ready to use at a price thats well under the typical monthly payment for owning a boat. Brian Gwinnup, owner of the Freedom franchise at Bluewater Bay, Destin, said year-round, go-anytime membership is $249 a month, and economy memberships that allow use except on summer weekends are just $200. The club requires a one-time $4,900 membership fee to join. We fuel the boat, put it in the water for you and clean it up, Gwinnup said. You just load your crew and gear and go. He said the eet at his facility includes a 25-foot offshore boat with twin outboards, a 21-foot bay boat, a deck boat, a 19-foot center console and a sailboat. Gwinnup said an online reservation system allows boaters to reserve boats in advance, but its also possible to call up and get an immediate slot if boats are vacant. Were open 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. in summer, and if anglers want to go out at daybreak, well get them set with the boat the night before, he said. When anglers bring the boat back to the dock, its refueled at the users expense. Its then cleaned and put in dry storage, ready for the next trip. You dont have to worry about insurance, theft, any of those ownership issues, Gwinnup said. There also are franchises at Niceville, Gulf Breeze and 57 other coastal locations around the eastern U.S. For details, visit www.freedomboat club.com. Page 8 Wednesday, September 21, 2011

By BRAD MILNER Florida Freedom Newspapers CHIPLEY Chipleys Jor dan McKinney scored with six minutes remaining and the Tigers defense stopped Bratt Northview on fourth down to seal a 34-27 high school football victory on Friday. The game featured two of the favorites in the new Ru ral classication, as the Tigers improved to 3-0 on the season. Kobe McCrary scored three touchdowns for Chi pley, which held a 22-19 lead at the half and never trailed. McCrary scored on a 45-yard pass from Josh Myers in the rst quar ter and added TD runs of 25 and 3 yards. James Voorhees added a 79-yard kickoff return for a TD for Chipley. McKinney went in from 25 yards to give Chipley the deciding margin. North view (1-1) drove past the Tigers 30-yard line and was stopped yards short on fourth down. The two teams are in separate regions in the Rural classication. If they met in the playoffs it would be in the state seminal. That would be where Chipley and coach Rob Armstrong want to be, but he said theres more work to be done before any dreams of the Final Four can be realized. It was a big win be cause it was two good football teams and this is a gauge for where we are at this time of the season, Armstrong said. But were only three weeks into the season, we havent started district play yes and thats about all that it means. Im real proud of the kids and the coaches and we played well offensively and defensively. They (North view) are a well-coached team, played hard and have great football players, It was a heckuva game. Chipley is at Marianna next week in another nondistrict game. By Steve Liner Managing Editor sliner@chipleypaper.com Confronted with an 18-0 decit as the rst quarter came to an end, the Holmes County High School Blue Devils (now 3-0) proved unstoppable for the remainder of the game. The team racked up 27 unanswered points to squelch the Baker High School Gators 28-18. The Devils romped behind a surprisingly ver satile quarterback in 11, Ethan Russ, and his un stoppable brother, 7, of fensive runningback Cody Russ for their third victory in as many outings. Cody Russ was the most ver satile player of the game, providing service on of fense, defense and special teams, where he served as kicker. In fact, for three Devil touchdowns he both made the touchdown run and point after kick. The lightning quick Number 7 proved virtually unstoppa ble to the Gator defense for much of the evening. The Blue Devil effort in cluded two goal line stands against Baker on the night, holding their rivals out of the end zone on both. Blue Devil Head Coach Brad Johnson credited the early decit to crucial pen alty calls and reigned in his team who drew only three adverse calls for the nal three periods of play. Its game time now, crooned Ethan Russ after the Blue Devils second touchdown of the night in the second quarter just be fore the haltime whistles blew. The Gators were not so fortunate in penalties, drawing back-to-back hold ing calls on offense and three delay of game calls on the night. By JASON SHOOT Florida Freedom Newspapers VERNON Bozemans defense redeemed itself when it needed to, and place-kicker Jordan Burns took care of the rest. Burns booted a 26-yard eld goal in overtime to lift the Bucks to a 17-14 victory over Vernon in a non-district football game Friday night. Vernon quarterback Hunter Dobbs reeled off a 47-yard touchdown run with 44 seconds left in the fourth quarter and then scored on a two-point con version to tie the game and send it into overtime. Bozemans defense bounced back with an impressive showing in overtime, preventing the Yellow Jackets (1-2) from gaining positive yardage on any of their four plays in the extra session. With the ball placed in the middle of the hash marks at the 10-yard line, Bucks coach Loren Till man sent Burns out to kick the game-winner. The attempt split the uprights, and Bozemans players rushed the eld to cel ebrate their hard-fought victory. He did very good, Bozeman quarterback Jacob Martinez said of Burns. The coaches made a great call. Jordan did it. Martinez engineered an eight-play, 60-yard drive in the rst quarter. Marti nez broke loose on a 21yard scramble on fourthand-4 to move the ball to Vernons 15, and two plays later located Tommy Cook in the end zone on a 15yard touchdown pass for a 7-6 lead 10 seconds into the second quarter. Martinez compiled 81 rushing yards and another 80 passing to power the Bucks. Bozeman totaled 252 yards as a team. We put points on the board (early) and it gave me condence, Martinez said. The Bucks (2-1) seem ingly put the game away late in the fourth quarter with Daniel Taylors 2yard plunge into the end zone with 2:23 remain ing. That play capped an 11-play drive that began at Bozemans 35. Taylor nearly fumbled away pos session at Vernons 4, but he bounced back two plays later running off tackle to the right and diving over the goal line. Vernons top play maker on offense, senior tailback Shaquille Powell, watched the game from the sidelines with a sling securing his right arm. Powell injured his shoul der last week against Wewahitchka. The Yellow Jackets didnt appear to need him initially. On the second play from scrimmage, Dobbs rolled out to his right before heaving a strike downeld to Julian Silas that turned into a 76-yard touchdown and a quick 6-0 lead. Vernon attempted a two-point conversion, but JQ Leverette was tackled before reaching the goal line. That Dobbs kid is a great player, Tillman said. He made plays all over the eld. Powells absence was more noticeable as the game progressed. Vernon could have used his break away speed as its offense bogged down in the rst half. After their big play, the Yellow Jackets com piled just 54 more yards before halftime. Bozemans defense con tinued to corral Vernons defense in the second half. The Yellow Jackets gained only 12 yards on offense in the third quarter, and they didnt register a rst down after halftime until the fourth quarter. Dobbs nished with 170 total yards for Vernon.

They got a huge re sponse and selected an ex ceptional Navy veteran for a home makeover. A few months ago, I traveled to Fayetteville, N.C., to watch hundreds of volunteers build Barbara Marshall a new 5,000-square-foot home. The three-story home, dubbed the Jubilee House, serves as a shelter and resource center for homeless female veterans. This episode, which also features a special visit by First Lady Michelle Obama, will kick off the shows ninth season Sept. 25. With that episode ready to air, the shows produc ers once again are seeking people involved with the military to feature in up coming episodes. The producers are look ing for people with amaz ing strength of character and who put their own needs aside to help oth ers, they said in a news release. Whether its a sol dier, a mom, a teacher or a reman, we think deserv ing families are families who inspire those around them. Additionally, the shows producers are seeking families whose houses need major alterations or repair homes that pres ent serious problems for the family and affect the familys quality of life. To be eligible, families must own their single-fam ily home and be able to demonstrate how a make over will make a difference in their lives. Rather than apply through the normal chan nels, interested military families or people who wish to nominate a military family can email a short description of the familys story directly to Jackie Topacio, casting producer, at jax@emhe.tv. Jackie told me she wants to make sure she reads every story submitted. Please dont wait to ap ply; the deadline for nomi nations is Sept. 29. The email should in clude the names and ages of household members, a description of the familys challenges, an explanation of why the family is deserv ing of a makeover or is a positive role model in the community, photos of the family and their home, and contact numbers. For more information on the application process, visit http://abc.go.com/ primetime/xtremehome/ index?pn=apply. Please pass this infor mation on to deserving military families. I hope to see a few on Extreme Makeover this season. By Steve Liner Managing Editor sliner@chippleypaper.com TALLAHASSEE A new study by the Florida Commission on Hu man Relations, the states lead ing anti-discrimination agency, has found that the commission saved Florida businesses $60.7 million over the past ve years by preventing costly litigation in hun dreds of discrimination cases. The commissions mediation services produced outcomes that typically cost businesses 89 percent less than if the cases had ended up in court, gures show. The study reveals that the com mission (FCHR) provided Florida with an average return on invest ment of 144 percent over the past ve years. In other words, for ev ery $1 provided by taxpayers to fund FCHRs annual operations, the Commission returned an ad ditional $1.44 in benets to Florida businesses through avoided costs associated with discrimination lawsuits. Were extremely proud of the commissions record resolving cases that allege discrimination, said Interim Co-Director Michelle Wilson. While ensuring the rights of individuals is of paramount im portance, the less money and time a business has to spend defending itself in court, the more that busi ness can focus on creating jobs for Floridians. Over the span of the 200607 through 2010-11 scal years, FCHRs free mediation process helped individual complainants in 508 cases reach a mutually agree able resolution with those they had accused of illegal discrimination. During that same time period, FCHR issued no cause deter minations in 3,571 cases. Without FCHR closing these cases quickly, a portion of them likely would have gone to court and required busi nesses to incur attorney costs, court fees, investigative and depo sition expenses, and other courtrelated expenses even though the actual complaints may not have been substantiated. While the extensive savings from these no-cause ndings can not be rmly established, the me diation cases offer clear evidence of FCHRs value to the business sector: According to a 2006 analysis by the federal Bureau of Justice Statistics, the average court-or dered damage award in discrimi nation cases was $134,125. Since mid-2006, the average settlement amount in cases suc cessfully mediated by FCHR is $14,527. Therefore, the average cost avoided per case resulting from FCHR mediation services is $119,598. This average savings multi plied by the number of successful mediations (508) equals $60,755,784, or an average of $12,151,156 per year. These gures do not include additional expenditures, such as attorney fees or court costs. Although average damage awards have likely risen signi cantly over the past ve years, FCHRs study reects a more con servative estimate based on the last documented federal study of discrimination case awards. Avoid ed court costs to businesses could in fact be substantially higher than what has been estimated by FCHR, but this cannot be deter mined conclusively. The study also establishes FCHRs return on investment for the taxpayers of Florida, based on the successful resolution of cases through mediation. Over the past ve scal years, the Legislature has appropriated just under $5 million per year, on average, for FCHRs entire annual budget. In the same period, businesses have realized, conservatively, more than $12.1 million per year in avoided costs. Thus businesses saved an additional $1.44 beyond each $1.00 spent to fund FCHR. Over the past ve scal years: The Legislature has appro priated, on average, $4.99 million per year for FCHR operations. Businesses have realized, conservatively, more than $12.15 million per year in avoided costs (as documented above). Return on Investment: 144% to taxpayers/businesses above the level of FCHR funding.

Washington, Holmes at a glance INDEX Society ................................. B2 Faith .................................... B4 Obituaries ............................

B7 Washington County News Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, SEP T EMBER 21 2011 B PA GE 1 Section School News B3 Birthdays B2 Faith Events B4 By Cecilia Spears Staff Writer cspears@chipleypaper.com Singer and songwriter Jon McLaughlin made his debut back into music, after dedicating a song to his cousin that died in the April 20, 2010, explosion of Deepwater Horizon. The song is now #1 on the iTunes Singer Songwriter Album and Song Charts and Top 20 on the iTunes Top Albums Chart for his new album Forever If Never. The last song on the album is called These Crazy Times, which I wrote shortly after my cousin died on the oil rig, said McLaughlin. Its about what happened with the oil spill and whats going on with the economy; its mainly a song written in frustrating times when things are not moving as fast as wed like them; unfortunately I think its a song that people can relate with. He currently holds the number one spot for his track, Maybe Its Over, making this the third album in a row to hit top single on the charts. Additional tracks from Forever if Ever also are located on the Top 20, including Ill Follow You at #5 and If Only I at #9 and My Girl Tonight at #20. McLaughlin is starting a 3-month, 40 city tour on September 27th, which will run through the end of the year. A private link for media to preview the album is available here: soundcloud.com/ user8796451/sets/jonmclaughlin-forever-if-ever/ s-ppBQO McLaughlin also was in a recent Disney lm, Enchanted, lmed in a ballroom scene singing So Close. I was on my way back home when a woman that worked with my record company asked me if Id like to sing a song for a Disney movie, said McLaughlin. I grew up watching Disney movies, so I was excited and told them I would, and before I knew it, they went from me just recording the song to me being in the movie. He said he got a real glimpse into what it takes to make a movie. We were lming the ballroom scene in a warehouse and I must say Ive got a new respect for those who make movies because we were in that warehouse for weeks doing that same scene over and over, said McLaughlin. Each scene became harder and harder because theyd drop this glitter from the ceiling and to redo the scene theyd have to clean up the glitter and do it again; it was a lot of hard work, but it was also a lot of fun. McLaughlin said he grew up playing the piano and listening to music by Elton John and Billy Joel. Its funny how life works, said McLaughlin. My career that has been lled with critical acclaim and success that has taken me up the charts, to the Oscars, into the studio with fellow artists like Jason Mraz, and on the road with Sara Bareilles and Kelly Clarkson, and Marc Broussard. He said that hes had four years, two albums, hit singles like Beautiful Disaster and an Academy Award performance that brought him to an unlikely crossroads when it came time to record a new disc. I wanted to write songs, and I wanted them to be my own, said McLaughlin. Ive been very grateful for the brilliant songwriters that my label had paired me with while making 2007s Indiana and OK Now (2008), but I missed the connection I felt when singing lyrics from my own soul. McLaughlin chose to part ways with Island Records and got back to writing solo. I just wanted to take a year or two to just write and thats what I did, he said. Then after a year I went back to looking for a label, but with the economy the way it was no one was looking for an artist. He said that didnt get him down and he encouraged his band to get together and record an album on their own. Our band recorded on our own and what we thought was just going to be a demo ended up being a whole record recorded in my house because we got so excited about the music, McLaughlin said. And thats how we got Forever if Never. McLaughlin said he was grateful to be managing his own music because now he could get back to the style of music he felt connected with. Ive always seemed to be drawn to love songs, he said. Those heartbreaking songs are what I think does the most for peoples emotions, whether it be a love song or a good song about heartbreak; you want a song to connect with your emotions. He said his inspiration comes from just living from day to day. It always seems like Im looking back and seeing that things were not as bad as they seemed, he said. Like when I was in college and stressing out about having no time; now I look back with my career as it is now and think that I had way more time at that time then now. He said it was like catching on to a pattern. I think that Ive gained a little more foresight and learned to relax a lot more, said McLaughlin. Because I dont want to miss a single moment because Im too wrapped up in stressing over the little things.

Ofcer Michael Richter of the Chipley Police De partment responded to a call following a vehicle bur glary at a local gas station. Richter immediately con ducted an investigation into the incident. He viewed the businesss security video, which showed the suspects stealing a womans purse from her car, according to police reports. Richter be gan searching for the sus pects, and within a short period of time had located the suspects and their ve hicle, his report indicated. After identifying the sus pects from the security video, Richter conducted a trafc stop of the suspects: Ebon Linton 23, Jeremy Linton, 19, and Gontacha Williams, 26, all of Baton Rouge, La. All three were arrested following the stop. All property was recovered and returned to the owner, reports show. Through hard work and commitment, we were able to identify, locate and take into custody these subjects from Louisiana, said Chipley Police Chief Kevin Crews. The Chi pley Police Department remains committed to the apprehension of those who choose to come into our city and commit crimes that affect those who live here. Close proximity to the interstate provides a prime opportunity for criminals passing through our city to commit crimes and then depart the area quickly. Through the co operation of the public and local businesses, we are able to work together to deter and apprehend criminals in our area. Charges were Ebon Linton, driving while li cense suspended or re voked; Jeremy D. Linton, burglary of an unoccupied conveyance and petit theft; and Gontacha Monique Williams, principle to bur glary of an unoccupied conveyance.Vernon man charged with producing methBy Steve LinerManaging Editor sliner@chipleypaper.com Joshua Lee Bryant, 21, of Vernon was arrested on charges of production of meth amphetamine and possession of listed chemicals on Sept. 7, following a trafc stop in Chipley. Bryant was stopped by Washington County Drug Task Force investigators, consisting of the Chipley Police De partment and Washington County Sheriffs Ofce, for a trafc violation. Investigators conducted a search of Bryants vehicle, where they said they found a portable methamphetamine lab in the oorboard of the passengers compartment of the vehicle. Bryant also was found to be in possession of chemicals for the manufac ture of methamphetamine. An investiga tion led investigators to believe Bryant was in the process of obtaining the remaining ingredients to produce more methamphet amine. Bryant was placed under arrest and transported to the Washington County Jail. Methamphetamine continues to plague our communities, said Chipley Police Chief Kevin Crews. This drug destroys the lives of our family and friends and seems to be a preferred drug to the younger genera tion. I encourage anyone with information of criminal activity to contact the Chipley Police Department. Special to the NewsTechnically at least, Washing ton Countys unemployment rate dipped by two-tenths of a percent between July and August, from 11.2 percent to 11 percent. But in real life terms, there was virtually no change, according to of cials at the Florida Department of Workforce Innovation, who pointed out that the number of unemployed workforce members remained al most totally unchanged. There were 41 additional jobs in the service and retail sectors, at least a hint of better days to come. Even so, the countys workforce reduced by more than 700, gures show, as prospective employees leave the job market or the county to seek work. Washington County has the highest unemployment level in the central Panhandle. Neighbor ing Holmes County had an August unemployment rate of 8.3 percent, down from 8.5 percent in July. The statewide rate dropped last month by one-tenth of a percent to 10.9, leading Gov. Rick Scott to say, The August job numbers prove that when you reduce the size, scope and cost of government, it allows the private sector jobs to grow. For every job lost in the pub lic sector, Florida gained two jobs in the private sector. There is still a long road ahead, but by remov ing the red tape that restricts eco nomic development, we are on the right path to getting Florida back to work. The addition of more than 71,000 jobs since the beginning of the year is positive news for all Floridians and businesses and is a potent re minder that by making tough choic es, we are doing the right things to turn the economy around. Washington County accounts for 57 of those jobs.3 charged in vehicle burglary GOnNTACHA WILLIAMsS JEREMY D. LLInNTOnN EEBOnN D.

Thats what happened Thursday to the Washington County Commission. The commissioners were there. The county staff was there. The public was not, despite the fact that each taxpayer had received writ ten notice of the hearing. Only a single private citizen attended the hearing, and she did not speak. Nevertheless, other than taking public comments which were not forthcoming, it took the commission about seven minutes to complete the hearings required work. Based on tentative decisions (they cannot be nalized until the nal public hearing on the budget is con ducted and concluded), the Washing ton County budget for the scal year beginning October 1 will be almost 21 percent less than the current years spending plan. The commission unanimously ap proved the tentative millage rate of 8.9195, the same as last year. Im just gad we kept the millage rate (the same). Said Commissioner Todd Abbott. Based on that millage rate, the countys tax income for the new s cal year will be slightly more than $33 million. Passage of the tentative millage rate and budget were both unanimous. I would like to thank all the depart ment heads and others who helped prepare this budget, said Commis sioner Charles Brock. The nal hearing is set for Sep tember 27, just before the new budget takes effect. The following arrests were made Sept. 5-12 in Washington County.

The dry cleaning and laundry business owner had to rush back to work to prepare some uniforms for a morning pick up. He and his employees were working into the night because they have found they use 38 per cent less electricity if they can do most of their cleaning after sunset. Last year, the Cottondale resident who operates his business in Bonifay, said he paid $19,000 to Gulf Power in utility costs. At the current electricity prices, he strug gled nancially and closed a location in Chipley, laying off two employees. If Gulf Pow er is granted the base rate increase it has requested that would increase power bills by $12.15 for every 1,000 kilowatt hours used, Porter said he and the utility com panys other 428,000 custom ers will face some very dif cult decisions. Its virtually impossible to see how my little opera tion in Bonifay ... how were going to survive, he said. The money is just not there in America today to do what Gulf Power is asking us to do. When Gulf Power led to raise rates this summer, they cited huge increases in the cost of doing business since the last time they raised their base rate in 2002. The base rate is used to fund the daily operations of the com pany including poles, wires, customer service locations and repair costs. Power bills have gone up since the last time the base rate increased, but it was largely a result of increases in the cost of fuel, which Gulf Power passes along to its customers at cost, spokesperson Jeff Rog ers said. But consumers are facing the same rising costs, cus tomer after customer point ed out at the public hearing in the main ballroom of Holi day Inn Select on Martin Lu ther King Boulevard. Joyce Fox said she hasnt had a raise in three years, and she has to cope with climbing prices too. Every time we are about to make ends meet, someone moves the end, she said. An interim rate increase of $38.5 million, $4.49 per month for the typical user, went into effect in August, but the Public Service Com mission still has to make a ruling on the increase in its entirety. If it is rejected, the interim increase would have to be refunded to customers with interest, public counsel J.R. Kelly said. Kelly, who is employed by the state to represent the rate payers in utility is sues, said he will be ghting against the increase and has discovered several items he will object to in court. For in stance, he said, the increase would move the utility com panys prot margin from 6 percent to 11 percent, an amount Kelly called entire ly excessive in the current economy; a huge increase to the storm damage reserve fund; and the amassing of $27 million for the possible construction of a nuclear power plant some time in the future. Gulf Power has made returns to its shareholders every year, utility spokes woman Sandy Sims said. To ensure continued interest in the stock, Gulf Power is under pressure to continue providing high returns. If re turns diminish and interest in the stock declines, Sims said customers will have to shoulder more of the cost of providing electricity.Gulf Power proposes rate increase Arrest REpPOrtRT

Several weeks ago, my friend Joe Earl Collins, retired Chipley High School chemistry teacher, inquired about the early history of Bethel Primitive Baptist Church. He was especially interested in who donated the original land for the church building and cemetery and the names of some of the people who might have lived in the immediate area at that time. The prattler is aware that the Brackin Family, who owned the adjoining property to Bethel Church in my earliest memory, is related closely to Joe Earls family. His great aunt, Rebecca (Becky) Collins Brackin, was living as a widow on the property just down the hill from the church in 1942 when James Thomas (Tom) Collins, wife, Pearl Rice Collins and two sons, Mack and Tom Alex moved from Malvern, Ala., to live on and farm the Brackin land. Later, Vivian J. (V.J.) Collins and wife, Lote Merritt Collins, accompanied by two young children, Joe Earl and Annie Myrel, along with two work mules, Pet and Babe, joined the other family members by moving to Florida in 1945. After rst owning his own farm, V. J. Collins and family later moved to the Brackin Ranch upon V.Js fathers retirement. Sen. Newman Brackin, Sr. had his cousin move to the ranch and manage the expanded operation. This included producing Black Angus, Brahman and Hereford cattle on the acreage, and using hay produced on the land supplemented by the improved pastures for grazing. The impressive twostory frame construction Brackin house was still standing tall and strong when the younger Collins family moved onto the property. They remained there until the death of V. J. and Lote. All that is left of the old home now are the two towering chimneys. Attending church at Bethel was a must for the neighboring Collins, even though none of them ever united with the congregation as members. Stories of the Brackin and Collins families, the history of Bethel Primitive Baptist Church and many of the families with long records of membership at the church, are contained in the Heritage of Washington Book, released in 2006. Matthew T. Brackin married Rebecca (Becky) Collins as his third wife and brought his young family to the homestead land in Washington County. After the death of Matthew, Becky moved into Bonifay in order for her children to attend school there. Her son, Newman, became a rst string player on Bonifays rst football team. He worked for the H. B. Douglas drug store as a soda jerk prior to serving as an apprentice pharmacist under Mr. Douglas. Newman became a licensed pharmacist upon completing schooling in Atlanta and opened Brackin Drug Store in Crestview. Later, he became State Senator in Okaloosa County. It is reported that the Brackin property was conveyed to them by the Allen Family and that the mammoth two story home was already under construction when the purchase was made. Minutes of Bethel Primitive Baptist Church show that A. W. Allen was received by that body for church membership by letter on May 24, 1890. It is not shown where he was transferring from. On that date, he was appointed as a delegate to the General Meeting to be held at Bethel Church that same weekend. Later notations in the church record, report A. W. Allen as offering public prayer in the worship service and serving as moderator, pro tem at one conference. His wife was received by letter into church membership at a later date. Charles G. Allen, who served as sheriff of Washington County from 1893-1901 and from 19041913, is reportedly from this family. My brother, Jim Wells, one year my senior, conrms my memory of two or three elaborate, top of the ground, mammoth tombstone, then in a poor state of repair, being in place at Bethel Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery and being identied to us as the graves of the Allen Family members, who once owned the Brackin property. Somewhere along the way, these broken and dilapidated grave markers were removed from their southwest corner of the cemetery and no one seems to recall when nor why they disappeared. One theory is that the sites were never used for burials and removing them allowed for others to be buried there. Joe Earl Collins is aware that his Brackin ancestors proved to be extremely benevolent in conveying additional land for the Bethel Cemetery as the need arose. He does not know if the Allens may have been the rst contributors in allowing for the church building and the cemetery, which only a title search of that era, would reveal. Collins agrees that some death dates recorded on tombstones in the old cemetery pre date the May 7, 1887 founding of the Church. Water was provided for church meetings from a giant, long handle, manually operated pump situated on the church grounds. Separate outdoor toilet facilities were provided for the men and the ladies. Hitching arrangements were plentiful for the horse drawn buggies and wagons which transported throngs of people to associational meetings and Sacred Harp Sings. The care and upkeep of the cemetery at Bethel Primitive Baptist Church, known to be 124 years old, probably rates higher, than comparable burial grounds. It is encouraging to observe Joe Earl Collins, and present younger church members, take an interest in the upkeep and general appearance of the cemetery grounds. Mr. Collins wife, Eileen Pipkin Collins, who died a year ago, is buried at Bethel, as is her Pate and Pipkin kin. He has recently attended to some repairs to these aging markers.

PERRYS pPRaA TTLE Perry Wells Dear Editor: The political charges and claims are coming at us from all directions. It is now time to inject some truth, facts and reality into this storm of claims. However, we must factually dene democratic government as we know it. Our governments only function is protection for our physical selves, freedom, democracy, and economic justice. It provides a protective military, law enforcement, and regulations that protect our rights and economic security. Big government means big protections. Now we must dene freedom, as we know it. God given freedom is a common claim among us all, a true claim. However, the republicans claim that we have no freedoms except those that are given to us by some authority over us. The democrats go along with God given that we have all freedoms except that which has been prohibited or regulated by the people, collectively, through their representatives to our protective government. Now we must truthfully dene job which seems to be the center of our political conict right now. Newt Gingrich gave us that denition during the Tea Party gathering this week in Tampa. He said people create jobs, a very true and easily understandable statement. People are the consumers that drives our economy, and their demands for goods and services is what makes jobs possible. Entrepreneurs only take advantage of this demand for their prots. No one is going to sell any goods or services that the public does not want. So, now, let us do a little truth in politics. Small Government means small, or weak protection for us all. Government runs on taxes, and low taxes means weak, or small, government, weak or no protection for us all. The denition of job says that government and politicians cannot create jobs except where consumer demands are satised. Government jobs (employees) are necessary to provide the our protections of government, and government provided national infrastructure. Government cannot mandate that we buy goods that we do not want just so a capitalist can make prots. All of our laws (regulations) have been created with the good intention that they protect us and our way of life in some way. Less government quite factually is a plea to take away some or all of these protections. Now let us dene something else, anarchy. Anarchy is a condition of absolute freedom, without protection, every man for himself, individually and separately. The short path to tyranny as the meanest, strongest, and best organized simply walks in and creates dictatorship, unopposed by anyone except individuals. We can never allow this to happen in our society. It is a condition that existed and disappeared thousands of years ago, and must never be allowed to return. Totalitarian government, the product of anarchy, also must never be allowed to return. I know of no opponent of regulation that ever dened what regulation he is opposed to or how we the people will benet from the demise of any regulation. Let us make our political discourse honest, for the rst time. Freedom must not be wasted by lies.Charles W. SmithBonifay cwssystems@centurylink.net Its politics time again LETTER TO THE EDITOR Its funny how things change. Fresh from summering on Marthas Vineyard, President Obama is now getting heat from blacks for the shocking increase in their unemployment under his policies. Then we have Dick Cheney promoting his book by showing up on every show on TV in a limo, with bodyguards and a posse, bragging about how he shot a man in the face and got away with it. Cheney might get the BET Rapper of the Year award while Obama is getting heat for not doing enough for blacks. What is interesting is how, under Obama, black unemployment hit a 27-year high last week. Even his loyal supporters are starting to get snippy. Just to add to what Jack Kennedy said, a rising tide does lift all boats, but conversely, when the tide goes out, it crushes those under the boat. We are all hurt by his governments policies of anti-business, increasing regulation and debt-craving controls. Instead of dividing black workers from white, Obama has resisted the temptation to overplay the race card. He is more of a classenvy card player. Just FYI, it aint so great in white America either. From what I can tell by watching TV, the only growing industry is redneck hand-shing. At a loss for anything but spending money on unions and government jobs, Obama has no ability to reduce the AfricanAmerican unemployment rate. Generally, when blacks got mad in the past, politicians would build them a Martin Luther King Jr. statue or name another street after MLK, and all was well. Not any more. Folks are no longer pacied by idle patronizing, which is a good thing. Maybe now we can have a nonracial discussion on how a growing economy helps us all. What can Obama do to help black male unemployment? There is nothing he can do except get out of the way. Yet he will not. Attorney General Eric Holder seems to want to sue businesses over anything; Holders DOJ seems to see race issues everywhere. They also love PC wordsmithing. The presidents smart phone is no longer a BlackBerry. Now its an African-American-Berry. Under Obamas watch, the U.S. bond rating has gone from AAA to AA. As any AA person will tell you, the rst thing you have to do is admit you have problem in order to change your ways. Apparently Obama was not in step with the Twelve-Steppers when he gave his muchanticipated jobs speech, which was full of the same pork stimulus that failed the rst time. The only good shovelready jobs were created by Texas Gov. Rick Perry when his state executed 235 murderers. If you wonder why the rst stimulus never worked, look no further than this example. Our Homeland Security Department had an ofce in a town of 12 people on the Canadian border with Maine; it handled six cars a day. But that wasnt good enough. With at least $16 million in stimulus money, DHS is building a huge ofce in Forest City, Maine to handle the one car every four hours that crosses the border there. The Forest City ofce building is so nice that DHS also created several Homeland Security desk jobs there. They just hope the terrorists respect our honor system by taking the time to come into the ofce and check in when they enter the country illegally and dont forget to enjoy the free espresso and the nice lobby. The jobs bill that Obama is pushing like a used-car dealer trying to move some metal (Pass this bill now!) has more of the same. One CNBC analyst said he thought it would cost $230,000 to $400,000 for each $50,000 job created. At some point, even the most partisan politicians in Washington have to understand that good policies benet us all. In reality, blacks have fared better under Republicans, pretty much from Abraham Lincoln on. We are all in this together and must help businesses in the U.S. grow and compete so we all can work to provide for our families.

LocalWashington County News | A5Wednesday, September 21, 2011By Felicia KitzmillerFlorida Freedom Newspapers TALLAHASSEE The opening day of an administrative hearing challenging Bay County well permits was plagued by legal ambi guity that slowed proceedings and seems destined to take the case to an appel late court. Bay Countys application for 10 potable water wells to be drilled along the Washington County border is being challenged by Washington County, the Knight family trust and pro se petitioners James Mur phy and Lee Lapenshon. According to Bay County ofcials, the wells are nec essary as a backup water supply if Deer Point Lake somehow was contaminated, which is possible in the event of saltwater intrusion from a hurricane or chemi cal spills, either from the road over the dam or from nearby train tracks. The opponents have argued Bay County has not demonstrated sufcient need for the wells they fear would draw down the groundwa ter supply along with the Floridan Aquifer, damaging the environment and de creasing property values. The case is the rst to be heard at Floridas Division of Administrative Hearings in Tallahassee under legis lation that went into effect July 1. The new rules shift the burden of proof of environmental impact, or lack thereof, from the applicant to the challenger. However, the new rules left the door open for a dis agreement about the num ber of rebuttals and wit nesses allowed, a disagree ment the judge suggested would have to be resolved at the appellate level. Opening statementsDespite the back and forth, both sides did give opening statements Mon day and assistant utilities director Paul Lackem acher took the stand. The days proceedings ended during Lackemachers cross-examination by Bri an Bolves, representing the petitioners. Although no one argues Deer Point Lake will suf ciently meet the potable water demands of Bay County for many years to come, Kenneth Oertel, representing Bay County, outlined the possible dan gers of an above-ground water source. In the 1970s, a train de railed in the area of the lake, releasing chlorine gas. Although the gas did not harm the water supply, trains that follow the same tracks carry chemicals that have the potential to cause such contamination, Lackemacher said. They have decided this risk is unacceptable to Bay County utilities and its customers, Oertel said. Ofcials added that Bay County supplies water for surrounding municipali ties, including two hospi tals, two military instal lations and other entities whose operations would be crucial in an emergency. Though Bay County consistently has said the water supply would be used only in an emergen cy, such a stipulation is nowhere to be found in the permit application, Bolves pointed out. The appli cation only states water withdrawals would be lim ited to an average of 5 mil lion gallons per day, not to exceed 30 million gallons for a length of more than 52 days. On cross-examination, Lackemacher said the 30 million gallons per day was based on his knowl edge and experience and admitted he wanted to get every gallon of water pos sible. Bay County has an average daily water usage of 24.5 million gallons per day with a peak of 40 mil lion gallons per day, but Bolves pointed out the 30 million gallons per day permit request fails to fac tor out the potential for storm evacuations and the curtailing of nonessential water use. John Thomas, an at torney for Washington County, called the permit application an exercise in water banking. If a party is allowed to lock up the rights to water, it interferes with the right of other users that might come along later, Thomas said. The placement of the wells along the border ensures nearly all the ad verse effects, including re ceding water levels at area lakes and the potential for sinkholes, would be almost exclusively in Washington County, Thomas said. The case is expected to last three weeks, and a public hearing tentatively has been scheduled Oct. 18 in Chipley. 306 West Brock Avenue Bonifay, FL (850) 547-9289 Rapid Recovery Program for In-Patient or Out-Patient RehabCome Take A Virtual Tourwww.bonifayrehab.comnPhysical, Occupational & Speech Therapy with vital stem available daily nOutpatient Rehabilitation nStroke Recovery nCardiac Recovery nRespite Care nRestorative Care ServicesnInfusion Therapy Services nAdvanced Wound Care Services with Specialized Physician on Staff to Oversee Wound Care TherapynTerminal CarenRespiratory Therapy ServicesnPharmaceutical ServicesnDietary ServicesnPatient & Family Educational ServicesnPastoral Care ServicesnSocial Services B ONIFAY NURSING & REHAB CENTER 2039597 Admission = FREE Parking = FREE.

Barker was very moved by the work that Childrens Home Society provides the community and became a volunteer and board mem ber two years ago. I was just really touched by what they do for children and families, Barker said. I think if you donate to Childrens Home Society you can feel good that your donation is going to help the most vulnerable in our society children. Throughout the eve ning, guests can enjoy live entertainment by Mark Harris and Mojo Rising, local children will be performing as well as the Fred Astaire dancers. There will also be a tes timony given by a family that Childrens Home So ciety has helped during a difficult time. Were also going to be doing something that weve never had to do before, doing a tribute to someone special who re cently passed away, Rusty Hill, Spivey said. He was a champion for us. So Panama City Toyota will be helping present some thing special to his family. And we will be awarding an advocacy all-star award this year as well. Even though this event is celebrating all those who have helped inside and outside of Childrens Home Society, it is also a fundraising event and they hope to raise more than $60,000. Money will be raised through spon sorships and ticket sales. $60,000 is amazing, but some of our programs cost $25,000 to operate a month, so we rely heavily on grants, Spivey said. And with the vulnerabil ity going on with the leg islature, we just want to make sure we can sustain the programs. Compassionate Chefs for Kids will be $35 for general admission and $75 for VIP. It will be held from 6-9 p.m., starting at 5 p.m. for VIPs at the FSU PC Holley Academic Center, on Saturday.

LocalWashington County News | A7Wednesday, September 21, 2011By Pat KellyFlorida Freedom Newspapers PANAMA CITY One issue that has been giving some Airport Authority board members nightmares is nearing resolution. The Airport Authority board is close to turning the old airport in Panama City over to its new owners, a hurdle to the new airports successful future that board members have been strug gling with for months. At issue is a $130,000 interest payment airport ofcials must make each month on state construc tion loans used to build the airport near West Bay, loans that will be paid off with the nal turnover of the old air port sale to the St. Andrew Bay Land Co. (SABLC), which is holding $56.5 mil lion in escrow until the nal closing. Two of the last remaining stumbling blocks to a suc cessful turnover are nally nearing completion, board Chairman Andy McKenzie said. The Florida Department of Environmental Protec tion recently sent a clear ance letter saying there were no remaining environ mental concerns at some areas of the 700-acre old airport site. Other areas still remain in question at the old facil ity and will determine the nal cleanup price that will be negotiated with the new owners, board attorney Franklin Harrison said. That notice should come within the next three to four weeks after repairs are completed to the sites pas senger terminal building, the last remaining obstacle. That work is now under way and should be complet ed in the next three to four weeks, airport Executive Director John Wheat said. Hundreds of thousands of dollars in environmental credits are at stake in the nal purchase price, and the airport is testing sites for possible contamination in order to determine their size, Wheat said. Their size will determine how much in environmental credits the airport will receive, Wheat said. Once the 30-day notice is issued, the airport and SABLC can negotiate and nalize the level of environ mental credits. Some board members had expressed concerns earlier this year that SA BLC had hoped to delay closing until next year in order to get out of the sale. But Harrison said the air port and SABLC have been in constant contact over the last few weeks to evaluate the remaining environmen tal areas in order to deter mine the level of environ mental credits. The cleanup is essential because SABLC plans a vil lage-type development for the old airport site that will include a mix of residential and multi-use building and open green spaces.

Nationwide, there were an estimated 1.2 million violent crimes re ported to authorities in 2010 and an estimated 9 million property crimes. An aging population, better policing and con tinued high rates of im prisonment for criminals are helping to drive down crime rates, criminolo gists say. Robbery fell 10 per cent, rape dropped 5 per cent, and murder, nonnegligent manslaughter and aggravated assault fell more than 4 percent. Each category of property crime offenses decreased in 2010. The largest decline, 7.4 per cent, was for motor ve hicle thefts. Burglaries decreased 2 percent and larceny-thefts declined 2.4 percent. The last thing we should do is get compla cent and say mission ac complished, and so lets transfer resources away to other areas, said James Alan Fox, a crimi nologist at Northeastern University. You dont solve the crime problem. You only control it. With out sufficient support for policing and crime pre vention, the numbers can go back up. On a related front, he said that law enforcement agencies have targeted gang leadership in com munities in states from Florida to New York, and from Tennessee to North Carolina.Violent crime dropped in 2010Special to the NewsDOTHAN, Ala.

Secretary of the Air Force Michael Donley and Chief of Staff Gen. Norton Schwartz on Monday an nounced an implementation plan developed by Air Com bat Command ofcials that will allow the F-22 Raptor to resume ight operations, according to Air Combat Command ofcials. We now have enough insight from recent studies and investigations that a return to ight is prudent and appropriate, Schwartz said in a news release Mon day. Were managing the risks with our aircrews, and were continuing to study the F-22s oxygen systems and collect data to improve its performance. Air Combat Command ofcials said they developed a comprehensive incre mental return-to-y plan that balances safety and the expedient qualication of pilots against the inher ent risks of ying advanced combat aircraft, ofcials said. Neither the Air Force nor Lockheed Martin has said much over the past few month other than they were investigating the problem. The problem with the F22 oxygen system came to light in November when an F-22 crashed just outside Elmendorf Air Force Base, Alaska, killing the pilot, Capt. Jeff Haney. Air Force ofcials briey halted F-22 ghts out of Elmendorf af ter the crash. The Air Force conrmed a parallel investigation of the on-board oxygen sys tems of the A-10, F-15E, F-16, F-35 and T-6 aircraft, none of which y out of Tyn dall. Tyndall Air Force Base ofcials said other aircraft continue to y to and from the base. Tyndall is the home of the 325th Fighter Wing, whose primary mission is to provide air training for F22 Raptor pilots, as well as maintenance personnel and air battle managers.Landmark to demonstrate peanut harvesting

OUTDoo OO RS www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection&If I were going to let the grouper go their merry way and I wanted to catch some sh that didnt require burning up $1,000 in gas, I would go to St. Joe Bay. The reports from over there are sounding better and better. The water is as clear as a bell, and the redsh and speckled trout are starting to turn on after this last bout of bad weather. The only problem is which way the wind is going to blow. One day they are saying a front isnt going to come through and give us some cooler weather, and then the next thing you hear is it will be in the 60s. It might rain, and then again it might not. Dont worry about the temperature, worry about the direction of the wind. St. Joe Bay lies in a northsouth direction. If the wind blows from the east, it leaves you little choice but to sh the east side, which is not my favorite. If it blows from the west, you are in business. This will keep the west shore wave-free, and that means sight-shing for speckled trout will be very good. If the wind blows from the north, you might as well stay home and watch football because the entire bay will be messed up. To keep from burning a ton of gas, I recommend going to the state park on the west side of the bay and launching. Catch a livewell full of menhaden or choffers, and put someone on the poling platform or drop the electric motor. Just ease down the bank as slowly as possible and sight-sh for trout and redsh. Except for catching speckled trout on topwater, this form of shing for specks is one of the most exciting ways of shing for trout and reds. To actually see the sh, cast to it and then get it to bite is a blast. After you catch your rst one, you will feel like you know something no other sherman knows. The stump hole on the inside of the bay reportedly is full of redsh. A shallow-water boat is needed to sh this area because of the depth. A kayak would be better, but a shallow-riding ats boat also would do the trick if you go at high tide. Free line choffers or menhaden, and dont use any lead. Keep an eye on the wind, because this is a big body of water, and it can become extremely rough.

Submit your hunting and shing photos to news@ chipleypaper.com.Hook harvest The ultimate Panhandle rig?BAY BOATSBy Frank Sargeantfranksargeant@bellsouth.net To be sure, no one boat will do it all, but one style comes close. For anglers who sh both the shallows of coastal bays and the green water off the beaches, its hard to beat the vessel that has become known as the bay boat. These are center-console rigs from 17 to 24 feet long; theyre considerably larger than the classic ats boat, which maxes out at 17 feet in most versions, but not nearly as large as most offshore boats, which typically are 24 feet and up. But bay boats have design features other than length that make them so versatile. For one thing, they sport a shallow vee bottom. Combined with relatively light weight, this allows them to run in very shallow water. Though they wont quite match the ankle-deep capability of some ultra-light ats rigs, most bay boats will easily run in just 18 inches of water and can be poled in as little as 12 inches. That means they can do a good job in the pursuit of ats species such as redsh, often found in water less than knee-deep. Bay boats also boast a longer running surface and higher freeboard (distance between the waterline and the gunwale) than ats rigs, which makes them more capable of delivering a smoother, drier ride in rough water. Most ats boats will beat your brains out in a foot-tall chop, but a bay boat with the bow trimmed down can handle three-footers. In good weather with a competent skipper, they can readily take on Panhandle inlets, allowing anglers to get offshore to sh for cobia, kings, Spanish and reef species. The larger size of bay boats also means you can carry a sizable crew families of two adults and three kids t nicely into a 21-footer, while three is denitely a crowd in any ats boat. And the broad beam of most bay rigs allows safe installation of a tower, a great spot from which to look for cobia or tarpon cruising at the surface. Many bay boats also are rigged with hard tops, providing shade at the helm and overhead space for a radio box and life preservers. Bay boats typically weigh between 1,500 and 2,500 pounds, which means they run nicely on a single outboard as small as 150 horses. Particularly with four-strokes or HPDI two-strokes, fuel economy is very good. The light weight also means an electric trolling motor mounted on the bow makes these boats very easy to maneuver when youre sneaking up on sh. Casting decks bow and stern offer lots of space to swing a rod, and all have lots of storage in water-resistant compartments below the decks. Trailering boats in this weight class is not a problem for any medium to fullsized truck with a frame hitch. Theres no need for giant V8-powered tow vehicles and weight-distributing hitches, which are required in towing a big offshore rig. If your interests are more in chasing billsh, dolphin, wahoo and tuna, the bay boat is not for you you need a big, deep, twin-engined offshore rig, and that will cost you plenty. Fortunately, in the Panhandle, there are hundreds of offshore charter boats that can take you out for less than the cost of a monthly payment on an offshore rig and also save you all the maintenance headaches. Unless youre absolutely rabid about shing blue water and have bushels of money to boot its better to rent time aboard a charter instead of having that six-digit monster depreciating in your driveway. A lot of bay boat companies have come and gone in the last few years. My favorite builder for both economy and quality, Sea Pro, sank without a ripple a few years back, but a lot of good used Sea Pros still are around. Many other familiar names still are in business; Ranger, Skeeter, Triton and others build high-end rigs, while Mako available at Tracker/Bass Pro Shops in Destin and Hydra-Sports are medium-priced alternatives. Good used bay boats can be owned for about $15,000, while premium brands new can cost more than $75,000. FRAn N K SS ARGEAn N T | Special to Florida FreedomAbove, bay boats like this Ranger are a Panhandle favorite, with shallow draft that allows ats access plus enough length, beam and vee to handle moderate offshore duties in good weather. Renting: an economy angle for the casual boaterBy Frank Sargeantfranksargeant@bellsouth.net The Freedom Boat Club offers a way of having an assortment of boats ready to use at a price thats well under the typical monthly payment for owning a boat. Brian Gwinnup, owner of the Freedom franchise at Bluewater Bay, Destin, said year-round, go-anytime membership is $249 a month, and economy memberships that allow use except on summer weekends are just $200. The club requires a one-time $4,900 membership fee to join. We fuel the boat, put it in the water for you and clean it up, Gwinnup said. You just load your crew and gear and go. He said the eet at his facility includes a 25-foot offshore boat with twin outboards, a 21-foot bay boat, a deck boat, a 19-foot center console and a sailboat. Gwinnup said an online reservation system allows boaters to reserve boats in advance, but its also possible to call up and get an immediate slot if boats are vacant. Were open 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. in summer, and if anglers want to go out at daybreak, well get them set with the boat the night before, he said. When anglers bring the boat back to the dock, its refueled at the users expense. Its then cleaned and put in dry storage, ready for the next trip. You dont have to worry about insurance, theft, any of those ownership issues, Gwinnup said. There also are franchises at Niceville, Gulf Breeze and 57 other coastal locations around the eastern U.S. For details, visit www.freedomboat club.com. Page 8 Wednesday, September 21, 2011

The game featured two of the favorites in the new Ru ral classication, as the Tigers improved to 3-0 on the season. Kobe McCrary scored three touchdowns for Chipley, which held a 22-19 lead at the half and never trailed. McCrary scored on a 45-yard pass from Josh Myers in the rst quar ter and added TD runs of 25 and 3 yards. James Voorhees added a 79-yard kickoff return for a TD for Chipley. McKinney went in from 25 yards to give Chipley the deciding margin. North view (1-1) drove past the Tigers 30-yard line and was stopped yards short on fourth down. The two teams are in separate regions in the Rural classication. If they met in the playoffs it would be in the state seminal. That would be where Chipley and coach Rob Armstrong want to be, but he said theres more work to be done before any dreams of the Final Four can be realized. It was a big win because it was two good football teams and this is a gauge for where we are at this time of the season, Armstrong said. But were only three weeks into the season, we havent started district play yes and thats about all that it means. Im real proud of the kids and the coaches and we played well offensively and defensively. They (North view) are a well-coached team, played hard and have great football players, It was a heckuva game. Chipley is at Marianna next week in another nondistrict game.By Steve LinerManaging Editor sliner@chipleypaper.com Confronted with an 18-0 decit as the rst quarter came to an end, the Holmes County High School Blue Devils (now 3-0) proved unstoppable for the remainder of the game. The team racked up 27 unanswered points to squelch the Baker High School Gators 28-18. The Devils romped behind a surprisingly ver satile quarterback in 11, Ethan Russ, and his un stoppable brother, 7, of fensive runningback Cody Russ for their third victory in as many outings. Cody Russ was the most ver satile player of the game, providing service on of fense, defense and special teams, where he served as kicker. In fact, for three Devil touchdowns he both made the touchdown run and point after kick. The lightning quick Number 7 proved virtually unstoppable to the Gator defense for much of the evening. The Blue Devil effort in cluded two goal line stands against Baker on the night, holding their rivals out of the end zone on both. Blue Devil Head Coach Brad Johnson credited the early decit to crucial pen alty calls and reigned in his team who drew only three adverse calls for the nal three periods of play. Its game time now, crooned Ethan Russ after the Blue Devils second touchdown of the night in the second quarter just be fore the haltime whistles blew. The Gators were not so fortunate in penalties, drawing back-to-back holding calls on offense and three delay of game calls on the night.By JASON SHOOTFlorida Freedom Newspapers VERNONERNON Bozemans defense redeemed itself when it needed to, and place-kicker Jordan Burns took care of the rest. Burns booted a 26-yard eld goal in overtime to lift the Bucks to a 17-14 victory over Vernon in a non-district football game Friday night. Vernon quarterback Hunter Dobbs reeled off a 47-yard touchdown run with 44 seconds left in the fourth quarter and then scored on a two-point conversion to tie the game and send it into overtime. Bozemans defense bounced back with an impressive showing in overtime, preventing the Yellow Jackets (1-2) from gaining positive yardage on any of their four plays in the extra session. With the ball placed in the middle of the hash marks at the 10-yard line, Bucks coach Loren Till man sent Burns out to kick the game-winner. The attempt split the uprights, and Bozemans players rushed the eld to cel ebrate their hard-fought victory. He did very good, Bozeman quarterback Jacob Martinez said of Burns. The coaches made a great call. Jordan did it. Martinez engineered an eight-play, 60-yard drive in the rst quarter. Marti nez broke loose on a 21yard scramble on fourthand-4 to move the ball to Vernons 15, and two plays later located Tommy Cook in the end zone on a 15yard touchdown pass for a 7-6 lead 10 seconds into the second quarter. Martinez compiled 81 rushing yards and another 80 passing to power the Bucks. Bozeman totaled 252 yards as a team. We put points on the board (early) and it gave me condence, Martinez said. The Bucks (2-1) seem ingly put the game away late in the fourth quarter with Daniel Taylors 2yard plunge into the end zone with 2:23 remain ing. That play capped an 11-play drive that began at Bozemans 35. Taylor nearly fumbled away pos session at Vernons 4, but he bounced back two plays later running off tackle to the right and diving over the goal line. Vernons top playmaker on offense, senior tailback Shaquille Powell, watched the game from the sidelines with a sling securing his right arm. Powell injured his shoulder last week against Wewahitchka. The Yellow Jackets didnt appear to need him initially. On the second play from scrimmage, Dobbs rolled out to his right before heaving a strike downeld to Julian Silas that turned into a 76-yard touchdown and a quick 6-0 lead. Vernon attempted a two-point conversion, but JQ Leverette was tackled before reaching the goal line. That Dobbs kid is a great player, Tillman said. He made plays all over the eld. Powells absence was more noticeable as the game progressed. Vernon could have used his break away speed as its offense bogged down in the rst half. After their big play, the Yellow Jackets com piled just 54 more yards before halftime. Bozemans defense continued to corral Vernons defense in the second half. The Yellow Jackets gained only 12 yards on offense in the third quarter, and they didnt register a rst down after halftime until the fourth quarter. Dobbs nished with 170 total yards for Vernon.Holmes County comes from behind to winCHS Tigers move to 3-0 on the seasonBozeman takes Vernon to overtime loss Ph H OTO By Y JAMES BB Ail IL Ey Y Blue Devils offense proved unstoppable for the Baker High Gators.

They got a huge re sponse and selected an ex ceptional Navy veteran for a home makeover. A few months ago, I traveled to Fayetteville, N.C., to watch hundreds of volunteers build Barbara Marshall a new 5,000-square-foot home. The three-story home, dubbed the Jubilee House, serves as a shelter and resource center for homeless female veterans. This episode, which also features a special visit by First Lady Michelle Obama, will kick off the shows ninth season Sept. 25. With that episode ready to air, the shows produc ers once again are seeking people involved with the military to feature in up coming episodes. The producers are look ing for people with amaz ing strength of character and who put their own needs aside to help oth ers, they said in a news release. Whether its a sol dier, a mom, a teacher or a reman, we think deserv ing families are families who inspire those around them. Additionally, the shows producers are seeking families whose houses need major alterations or repair homes that pres ent serious problems for the family and affect the familys quality of life. To be eligible, families must own their single-fam ily home and be able to demonstrate how a make over will make a difference in their lives. Rather than apply through the normal chan nels, interested military families or people who wish to nominate a military family can email a short description of the familys story directly to Jackie Topacio, casting producer, at jax@emhe.tv. Jackie told me she wants to make sure she reads every story submitted. Please dont wait to ap ply; the deadline for nomi nations is Sept. 29. The email should in clude the names and ages of household members, a description of the familys challenges, an explanation of why the family is deserv ing of a makeover or is a positive role model in the community, photos of the family and their home, and contact numbers. For more information on the application process, visit http://abc.go.com/ primetime/xtremehome/ index?pn=apply. Please pass this infor mation on to deserving military families. I hope to see a few on Extreme Makeover this season.By Steve LinerManaging Editor sliner@chippleypaper.com TALLAHASSEE A new study by the Florida Commission on Hu man Relations, the states lead ing anti-discrimination agency, has found that the commission saved Florida businesses $60.7 million over the past ve years by preventing costly litigation in hun dreds of discrimination cases. The commissions mediation services produced outcomes that typically cost businesses 89 percent less than if the cases had ended up in court, gures show. The study reveals that the com mission (FCHR) provided Florida with an average return on invest ment of 144 percent over the past ve years. In other words, for ev ery $1 provided by taxpayers to fund FCHRs annual operations, the Commission returned an ad ditional $1.44 in benets to Florida businesses through avoided costs associated with discrimination lawsuits. Were extremely proud of the commissions record resolving cases that allege discrimination, said Interim Co-Director Michelle Wilson. While ensuring the rights of individuals is of paramount im portance, the less money and time a business has to spend defending itself in court, the more that busi ness can focus on creating jobs for Floridians. Over the span of the 200607 through 2010-11 scal years, FCHRs free mediation process helped individual complainants in 508 cases reach a mutually agree able resolution with those they had accused of illegal discrimination. During that same time period, FCHR issued no cause deter minations in 3,571 cases. Without FCHR closing these cases quickly, a portion of them likely would have gone to court and required busi nesses to incur attorney costs, court fees, investigative and depo sition expenses, and other courtrelated expenses even though the actual complaints may not have been substantiated. While the extensive savings from these no-cause ndings can not be rmly established, the me diation cases offer clear evidence of FCHRs value to the business sector: According to a 2006 analysis by the federal Bureau of Justice Statistics, the average court-or dered damage award in discrimi nation cases was $134,125. Since mid-2006, the average settlement amount in cases suc cessfully mediated by FCHR is $14,527. Therefore, the average cost avoided per case resulting from FCHR mediation services is $119,598. This average savings multi plied by the number of successful mediations (508) equals $60,755,784, or an average of $12,151,156 per year. These gures do not include additional expenditures, such as attorney fees or court costs. Although average damage awards have likely risen signi cantly over the past ve years, FCHRs study reects a more con servative estimate based on the last documented federal study of discrimination case awards. Avoid ed court costs to businesses could in fact be substantially higher than what has been estimated by FCHR, but this cannot be deter mined conclusively. The study also establishes FCHRs return on investment for the taxpayers of Florida, based on the successful resolution of cases through mediation. Over the past ve scal years, the Legislature has appropriated just under $5 million per year, on average, for FCHRs entire annual budget. In the same period, businesses have realized, conservatively, more than $12.1 million per year in avoided costs. Thus businesses saved an additional $1.44 beyond each $1.00 spent to fund FCHR. Over the past ve scal years: The Legislature has appro priated, on average, $4.99 million per year for FCHR operations. Businesses have realized, conservatively, more than $12.15 million per year in avoided costs (as documented above). Return on Investment: 144% to taxpayers/businesses above the level of FCHR funding.Human Relations Commission study: millions savedThe Sure Shots 4-H Club of Washington County started off the 2011-12 4-H Year with a big bang.

Washington, Holmes at a glance INDEXSociety ................................. B2 Faith .................................... B4 Obituaries ............................ B5 Classieds ............................ B7 Washington County News Holmes County Times-AdvertiserWednesday, SEPt T EMBER 21 2011 B PaPA GE 1 SectionSchool News BB3 Birthdays BB2 Faith Events BB4 By Cecilia Spears Staff Writer cspears@chipleypaper.com Singer and songwriter Jon McLaughlin made his debut back into music, after dedicating a song to his cousin that died in the April 20, 2010, explosion of Deepwater Horizon. The song is now #1 on the iTunes Singer Songwriter Album and Song Charts and Top 20 on the iTunes Top Albums Chart for his new album Forever If Never. The last song on the album is called These Crazy Times, which I wrote shortly after my cousin died on the oil rig, said McLaughlin. Its about what happened with the oil spill and whats going on with the economy; its mainly a song written in frustrating times when things are not moving as fast as wed like them; unfortunately I think its a song that people can relate with. He currently holds the number one spot for his track, Maybe Its Over, making this the third album in a row to hit top single on the charts. Additional tracks from Forever if Ever also are located on the Top 20, including Ill Follow You at #5 and If Only I at #9 and My Girl Tonight at #20. McLaughlin is starting a 3-month, 40 city tour on September 27th, which will run through the end of the year. A private link for media to preview the album is available here: soundcloud.com/ user8796451/sets/jonmclaughlin-forever-if-ever/ s-ppBQO McLaughlin also was in a recent Disney lm, Enchanted, lmed in a ballroom scene singing So Close. I was on my way back home when a woman that worked with my record company asked me if Id like to sing a song for a Disney movie, said McLaughlin. I grew up watching Disney movies, so I was excited and told them I would, and before I knew it, they went from me just recording the song to me being in the movie. He said he got a real glimpse into what it takes to make a movie. We were lming the ballroom scene in a warehouse and I must say Ive got a new respect for those who make movies because we were in that warehouse for weeks doing that same scene over and over, said McLaughlin. Each scene became harder and harder because theyd drop this glitter from the ceiling and to redo the scene theyd have to clean up the glitter and do it again; it was a lot of hard work, but it was also a lot of fun. McLaughlin said he grew up playing the piano and listening to music by Elton John and Billy Joel. Its funny how life works, said McLaughlin. My career that has been lled with critical acclaim and success that has taken me up the charts, to the Oscars, into the studio with fellow artists like Jason Mraz, and on the road with Sara Bareilles and Kelly Clarkson, and Marc Broussard. He said that hes had four years, two albums, hit singles like Beautiful Disaster and an Academy Award performance that brought him to an unlikely crossroads when it came time to record a new disc. I wanted to write songs, and I wanted them to be my own, said McLaughlin. Ive been very grateful for the brilliant songwriters that my label had paired me with while making 2007s Indiana and OK Now (2008), but I missed the connection I felt when singing lyrics from my own soul. McLaughlin chose to part ways with Island Records and got back to writing solo. I just wanted to take a year or two to just write and thats what I did, he said. Then after a year I went back to looking for a label, but with the economy the way it was no one was looking for an artist. He said that didnt get him down and he encouraged his band to get together and record an album on their own. Our band recorded on our own and what we thought was just going to be a demo ended up being a whole record recorded in my house because we got so excited about the music, McLaughlin said. And thats how we got Forever if Never. McLaughlin said he was grateful to be managing his own music because now he could get back to the style of music he felt connected with. Ive always seemed to be drawn to love songs, he said. Those heartbreaking songs are what I think does the most for peoples emotions, whether it be a love song or a good song about heartbreak; you want a song to connect with your emotions. He said his inspiration comes from just living from day to day. It always seems like Im looking back and seeing that things were not as bad as they seemed, he said. Like when I was in college and stressing out about having no time; now I look back with my career as it is now and think that I had way more time at that time then now. He said it was like catching on to a pattern. I think that Ive gained a little more foresight and learned to relax a lot more, said McLaughlin. Because I dont want to miss a single moment because Im too wrapped up in stressing over the little things.
