A2 Opinion ................................. A4 Classieds ............................. A5 By Cecilia Spears Staff Writer cspears@chipleypaper.com CHIPL E Y The Wash ington County Drug Task Force reported the arrest of a habitual methamphet amine cooker, Stanley Phillip Tutton, 55, of Chipley and the dismantling of a meth lab on Tuesday, Sept. 20. According to the report, WCDTF investigators with the assistance of Chipley Probation and Parole dis covered both trafcking amounts of methamphet amines and drug para phernalia during a drug raid. Also found were nu merous shake and bake meth labs in active pro duction of methamphet amines in two separate sheds found on the property. Tutton was arrested, charged with possession of methamphet amine and possession of drug paraphernalia and is being held at the Washington County Jail. (Chipley Police) Chief (Kevin) Crews and I know that its ineffec tual to only target and eliminate new threats when working cases involving methamphetamine cookers and dealers, said Wash ington County Sheriff Bobby Had dock. Methamphetamines are attributed with the ability to take hold of its victim and keep them in a revolving pattern of use and production. The grip is like no other, and without drastic inter vention, habitual offenders will be at its mercy for the rest of their lives. The WCDTF comprises the Washington County Sheriffs Of ce and the Chipley Police De partment. Haddock asks that any one with information on illegal drug activity contact the sheriffs ofce at 638-TIPS (8477) or by email at tips@wcso.us. By Cecilia Spears Staff Writer cspears@chipleypaper.com CHIPL E Y Christopher Allen Kirk, 25, of Chipley was arrested this week in connection with the recent burglaries at Lanes Out door Equipment, Tractor Supply and Chipley Gun and Pawn, the Washington County Sheriffs Ofce has announced. According to the report, WCSO investigators had worked numer ous leads and conducted several interviews until Kirk was identied as the wanted suspected and the stolen property, valued at $4,000, was recovered. Kirk was arrested and charged with dealing in stolen property, a seconddegree felony; burglary, a third-degree felony; grand theft on three counts, a third-degree felony; break/ injury to a fence on two counts, a rst-degree misdemeanor; and trespassing, a third-degree misdemeanor. Our guys put the leg work in that resulted in this arrest and our ability to put our local busi ness property back into its rightful hands, Washington County Sheriff Bobby Haddock said. At the end of the day, we treat theft of our resi dents and local business owners property with extreme priority. It is satisfying to know that those who chose to prot on the backs of the hard work of others nd the justice they deserve. Kirk is being held at the Wash ington County Jail on $25,000 bond. Additional charges are pending, some of which are a result of Kirks suspected connection to burglaries in Holmes and Walton counties. By Tom McLaughlin Florida Freedom Newspapers T ALLAHASSEE Northwest Flo ridians packed the State Capitol building Sept. 19 to see Niceville resident state Sen. Don Gaetz des ignated as the next president of the Florida Legislatures upper cham ber. Gaetzs friends, family and sup porters packed the Senate spec tator seating to the brim, and the spillover was obligated to watch on television as Gaetz was unanimous ly selected the Republican Party caucus choice to lead the Senate from November 2012 until 2014. They saw Gaetz pull out oratori cal skills that left no one wondering how hed led a little Midwestern college to a national debate title and a defeat of debate powerhouse Harvard. That was a great speech, Oka loosa County Supervisor of Elec tions Paul Lux marveled as he, one of an estimated 600 from Northwest Florida, left the Senate chambers to attend a reception in the Senate president-designates honor. Its incredibly easy to see why Harvard lost. Both Don Gaetz and his wife, Vicky, said they were as humbled by the attendance of folks from home as they were by the honor of the designation itself. It looks like we emptied out Northwest Florida, Gaetz quipped as acquaintances circled him to wish him well. That was the best part of the day. Seminar takes on Sunshine laws By S.

By Steve Liner Managing Editor sliner@chipleypaper.com Richie Cristan is his name, and best management practices is his game. Florida Forest Service Best Manage ment Practices (BMP) Forester Cristan stands ready to offer valuable advice to landowners and other land-use groups, especially when it comes to conducting forestry operations in or around wetland areas, streams and lakes. Though his ofce is centrally located in Panama City, Richie serves 18 Florida counties from Escambia at the western most tip of the panhandle to Madison and Taylor counties in the big bend area. One of the duties of a BMP forester is to conduct a biennial survey to determine the level of BMP implementation. That means he and his counterparts in the state look for forestry operations, such as logging, site preparation and tree plant ings near streams, lakes, rivers and other wetland areas, and evaluate whether or not BMPs were properly applied. Participation in the survey is volun tary, and the results help report and de termine how well BMPs are being used in the state. This process is not regulatory. That means Cristan is not authorized to write citations for operations that are not in compliance with BMPs. This serves as education and information for the land owner and for the Florida Forest Service. Another valuable aspect of a BMP forester is the availability to present educational workshops for loggers, for esters and private industry, as well as special groups and civic organizations like Kiwanis Clubs Rotary Clubs, etc. Workshops can even be conducted in the eld for logging companies. The average workshop is about four hours long but can be modied to as short as 10 to 15 min utes if necessary, depending on the needs of the organization. Professionals such as foresters also might be eligible for con tinuing education credits from some of the BMP training and workshops. Finally, BMP foresters like Cristan are available to help guide loggers and land owners through forestry operations by conducting BMP courtesy checks. This service is available to any interested par ty and there is no cost associated with it. For more information about BMP courtesy checks, visit www.-dof.com/ forest_management/hydrology_checks. html. BMPs for silviculture in Florida rst were established in the mid-1970s in re sponse to the Federal Clean Water Act of 1972, to help protect Floridas streams and lakes from potential sources of pollu tion associated with forestry activities. On a personal level, Cristan was born and raised in central Pennsylvania. He al ways liked working outside and working with the environment. He has a masters degree in forest resource management with a concentration in forest biometrics from the University of Tennessee. 1 in 4 older Americans volunteers Staff Report New data released to day by the Corporation for National and Commu nity Service indicates that 18.7 million older adults more than a quarter of those 55 and older con tributed on average more than 3 billion hours of ser vice in their communities per year between 2008 and 2010. The yearly economic benet of this service to the nation equals more than $64 billion. In this area, the contri butions offset more than $5 million in needed public tax dollar investment, the organization said. Communities across America are seeing the benets from the talent and skill older Americans offer through volunteer ing, said Robert Velasco II, acting CEO of the Cor poration for National and Community Service. Dur ing Senior Corps Week, we celebrate the powerful impact of the more than 450,000 Senior Corps vol unteers who are helping to solve problems ranging from poverty and illiteracy to helping seniors continue to live independently. The Corporation for Na tional and Community Ser vice administers three Se nior Corps programs: Fos ter Grandparents, RSVP and Senior Companions. Older Americans bring a lifetime of skills and expe rience that can be tapped to meet community chal lenges, solve problems and serve those most in need, making senior service a vital investment for the 15 North Florida counties in our service area, said Julie Prevatt, Division Di rector of Senior Volunteer Programs. Last year, 160 local Fos ter Grandparent volun teers gave 125,147 hours of their time to more than 300 at-risk youth. These volunteers play a key role in addressing the academic and social challenges these youth face and are dem onstrating success 86 percent of youth served by a Foster Grandparent dem onstrated improved aca demic performance, while 90 percent of pre-schoolers served gained the neces sary skills to enter kinder garten increasing their chance for overall school success. RSVP, Senior Corps largest program, engages more than 400,000 volun teers nationwide and more than 325 locally in tutoring and mentoring children, assisting low-income fami lies with food and shelter, providing transportation to medical appointments for many frail seniors and helping nonprot and faithbased organizations. By Chris Segal Florida Freedom Newspapers PANAMA CITY The campus has a plethora of students walking between classes, and there is a premium on parking spaces, signs Gulf Coast State College ofcials nd healthy. Preliminary enrollment gures released Sept. 19 re corded 6,303 students enrolled in the fall semester, an increase of slightly more than 2 percent. I feel good about enrollment, said GCSC President Jim Kerley. We are see ing increased enrollment in our E-learn ing classes, vocational classes, bachelor programs and I think we are on the right track. Kerley said new programs are criti cal to increasing the number of students who enroll, but new opportunities, schol arships dollars and exibility also are re quired. The colleges goal is to have 3 to 4 percent enrollment growth each semester, Kerley said. Online college prep num bers increased 45.6 percent. The E-Learning programs overall had the most growth with a 9.9 percent rise in head count and a nearly a 12 percent increase in full-time students. This is clear evidence that students, who have a demand for exibility in their lives, nd distance education as the best t for them, Steve Dunnivant, associ ate dean of E-Learning, said in a news release.

New RE JEWE S ES, Ford was a longtime em ployee of the Jackson Coun ty School District. During her 21 years working for the district, friends and col leagues said she never lost her cool despite the oc casional angry caller and baked a mouth-watering cheesecake. State Attorney Glenn Hess said the plea agree ment was made at the re quest of Fords family, who wanted to move on without being re-victimized during the long and inevitable ap peals process. Larry Ford, Vivian Fords husband, read a let ter to Judge William Wright explaining the familys decision. We are without reser vation informing the court system of our request for a sentence of life impris onment without parole for John Wayne Lincoln, Ford said. We do not wish to con tinue the legal proceedings that follow capital punish ment cases. Clyde Taylor, Lincolns attorney, apologized to the family on behalf of his cli ent. Lincoln couldnt ex plain why hed killed Ford, except that he freaked out and lost it, Taylor said. He has no explanation for what happened that day, Taylor said. There had been ques tions about Lincolns men tal tness. Taylor had his client interviewed by a mental health expert in anticipation of a possible death penalty trial, but Lincoln indicated he felt competent and had been receiving his prescribed medications. Wright sentenced Lin coln to three consecutive life sentences nonetheless. Lincoln received one life sentence each for rst-de gree murder, armed bur glary of a dwelling and rob bery with a deadly weapon. Lincoln also was charged with several other robber ies, and the plea agreement resolved those cases as well. He received 15-year sentences for each of three counts of burglary of a dwelling, ve-year sentenc es for each of two counts of grand theft and a 15-year sentence for a single count of dealing in stolen prop erty. All sentences are to be served consecutively. Another man, King Sher man, has been charged with dealing in stolen property and burglary of a dwelling, but investigators have charged him with murder charge, though they said they believe he was present during the slaying. Sher mans trial on those charg es is set to begin Monday in Jackson County. LINCOLN from page A1 SUNSHINE from page A1 PRESIDENT from page A1 Tuesday, as long as they dont talk about public business. County commissioners, school board members and other public ofcials can socialize, even in their pajamas on their street, as long as they dont dis cuss the publics business, Petersen said. She was addressing about 50 people, includ ing government employ ees, journalists, citizen activists and students, during a one-day seminar at Florida State Univer sity Panama Citys Holley Center. Petersen took the attendees through a crash course in Floridas public records and public meet ings requirements. Petersen pointed out that Floridas Constitu tion gives every person the right to inspect or copy any public document made or received in con nection with ofcials busi ness. Subsequent laws and the courts have inter preted that to cover email, Gaetz took the rostrum of the Senate chamber after being unani mously, and enthusiastically, se lected by his peers as its president designate. From there he encour aged his fellow senators to take on three jobs with him, just as he had taken on three jobs when his father died suddenly when Gaetz was 16. The rst job he tasked his fel low senators with was to deal with one another, members of the state House and of the Democratic Par ty, in a civil, productive and aboveboard manner. Never fear the debate, he said. But let the debate be constructive. There is nothing keeping this legislative body from being the greatest deliberative body in the nation, or the highest in its ethi cal standards, he said. Let there never be a time when the people of Florida say they are ashamed of their political leaders. With Gov. Rick Scott in atten dance, Gaetz also challenged his fellow senators to help him make Florida a place attractive to For tune 500 businesses by doing away with binding taxes and regulations and educating a workforce capable of taking on the science, technol ogy, engineering and mathematics jobs required to attract business. 700,000 new jobs without 700,000 educated graduates ready to ll them just raises another economic question, Gaetz said, having made reference to Scotts pledge to create 700,000 Florida jobs in seven years. The third job for which Gaetz asked for help from his Sen ate mates was making Florida a free zone for research and entrepreneurism. Im asking you to sign up for a mission to make Florida rst, Gaetz said. I know what its like to do three jobs. Its hard, Gaetz said in clos ing. We can do these three jobs because we have to. These are not small times, he said, after quoting Winston Churchill. The times are hard times, but they can be great times. Let us not waste one day. After the speech, Scott told re porters, Im looking forward to working with Sen. Gaetz. Its not only nice to know we have a friend in there (the Senate presidency) but its nice to know we have a friend in there who will ght to get things done. Gaetzs ghting spirit, along with his upbringing, his ability to build a hugely successful business promoting care for the dying and his love of family were all themes of the designation ceremony. How ard Hill, who served with Gaetz on the Okaloosa County School Board and who gave the Pledge of Alle giance at the ceremony Monday, said the state Senate has found in Gaetz what the county school board found. I think hes got a vision that is good, and if he can get everybody on board well do well, Hill said. Granted these are tough times, but its not words, its work. And I know him. He will be working harder than anybody. If you ever want a leader thats leading by ex ample, its him. Scott was joined on the Senate oor Monday by members of his cabinet and Northwest Florida congressmen Jeff Miller and Steve Southerland. State Sens. John Thrasher, RJacksonville, and Joe Negron, RStuart, nominated Gaetz for the designation. Thrasher told the assembled, I continue to be im pressed by his drive and passion. He praised Gaetz as an accom plished businessman, problem solver, husband and father. Gaetz will be the rst Senate president from Okaloosa County since Newman C. Brackin held the position in 1949. He will succeed current Senate President Mike Haridopolos. texts and even handwritten notes by public ofcials. The law requires com pliance from state agen cies, local governments, school boards, special dis tricts, advisory boards, pri vate companies doing busi ness on behalf of a govern ment agency and even lone agents acting on behalf of a board or commission. Petersen also explained exemptions under the law. For instance, some gov ernment meetings can be closed to the public, but they are limited in scope, and the board has to take its action in the open. Also, the home addresses for police ofcers and Social Security numbers of every citizen are exempt from public scrutiny. Sometimes the exemp tions created by the Leg islature dont make sense, she added. One group of government employees, hoping they could get their home addresses exempted from public scrutiny, failed to take their names out of area phone books and from certain websites before petitioning Tallahassee of cials for the change. Finally, Petersen cov ered the sanctions those who violate the Sunshine Law could face. An unin tentional violation is non criminal and punishable by a ne not exceeding $500. An intentional violation is a rst-degree misdemeanor punishable by a ne of up to $1,000 and a jail term not exceeding one year. The event was co-spon sored by The League of Women Voters and The Panama City News Herald.

By Kenneth E. Brooten Jr. Editors Note: This speech was given locally as part of a celebration of the birthday of the U. S. Constitution and excerpts are printed here. The full text can be found at www. chipleypaper.com. The opinions expressed are those of the writer, not this newspaper. John Adams, our Second President in his Inaugural address on March 4, 1797, warned us: We should be unfaithful to ourselves if we should ever lose sight of the danger to our Liberties if anything partial or extraneous should infect the purity of our free, fair, virtuous, and independent elections. If an election is to be determined by a majority of a single vote, and that can be procured by a party through artice or corruption, the Government may be the choice of a party for its own ends, not of the nation for the national good. Clearly, subversive elements within our nation have, through, artice, corruption, fraud and intimidation hijacked the Democratic party and they have converted it to advance their subversive Marxist Leninist aesthetic agenda for America. Let us begin by examining the provable facts: The Democratic Party currently has 189 members in the House of Representatives and of those 189 Democrats 81, or 43 percent, have unleashed their deadly invasive subversive cancer on our Nation and our Constitution. They use euphemistic names to disguise their true identities and agenda; They call themselves American Democratic Socialists and Democratic Progressives. The MarxistLeninist cancer they have unleashed on America has already metastasized and has inltrated every Department, Agency and entity of our Federal Government. Eighty One veried Democratic Members of The House of Representatives and the President and this Administration are the prime Agents of Change. The ACLU; The Southern Poverty Law Center, The National Lawyers Guild and other lesser known legal organizations have provided the legal assistance to implement their subversive agenda and forever change the face of America. Their objectives not only directly threaten but would completely reshape the relationship between individual citizens and our Federal Government. They would dramatically increase the role and control by government over our every aspect of our daily lives and undermine our rights and liberties guaranteed by our United States Constitution. The cancer that invades the institutions of our Government is neither new or novel. Communism reared its subversive head in America during the labor union movements of the 1930s. Much like the stealth approach of violent Islamic Jihad they are seeking to shape America to the image of their original sponsor Marxist, Leninist, Stalinist Russia. During the 1930s the Communist Party, U.S.A. was active in America. However, post World War II as the Soviet iron curtain fell over Europe and America, Americans quickly identied and recognized the Communist threat and minimized it. During the 1950s and the 1960s the Senate and the House Un-American Activities Committee exposed Communists in the Department of State and shed a light on Communist activity which served to minimize but not exterminate the subversive threat. Be it remembered that President Jimmy Carter granted blanket amnesty to the American draft dodgers who evaded military service in Vietnam. Those Communist inspired cowards came back to the United States from their safe haven in Canada and quietly began to inltrate our society and enter our political landscape. They have names, William Ayres, Bernadette Dorne, The Weather Underground and thousands of others who today are part of the Socialist Progressive coalition. Unfortunately, because of revisionist history many younger Americans neither know or understand the scope of the existing threat to our Constitution and to our individual and collective Freedoms and Liberties that Communism poses. Manifestly American Democratic Communists are well organized, well nanced and if allowed to continue to metastasize unchallenged their aesthetic Marxist Leninist Ideology will consume all of our individual Constitutional freedoms and liberties and forever change the face of our nation. We are at War not War in the conventional sense but a cultural and economic war against those who seek to conquer and dominate our Constitutional Republic and completely do away with our capitalistic free market economy. Capitalism and a free market economy were the major factors that built this nation and made her prosper. Our free market economy and our United States Constitution are the critical underpinnings of our American Exceptionalism. Our Constitutional freedoms and liberties and a free market economy have allowed every person to aspire to the American Dream and make it a reality. Today, because of the clear and present danger posed by the Socialist and Progressive far left our Constitutional liberties and freedoms and the American Dream hang perilously in the balance. The enemy within, like every form of deadly cancer ows untreated and unchecked through the veins and arteries of America and her public and private institutions. Those who believe in the Marxist-Leninist ideology have migrated to the Democratic party which is now nearly to 50 percent controlled by American Democratic Socialists and Progressives. They have shed the name Communist but retained its core ideology. They are sinister subversive elements who seek to erode our fundamental individual Constitutional rights. Few Commentators talk about them and the major mass media often exalts their goals. They use our First Amendment rights to trample on the rights of all Americans. They are today everywhere on the march. They have a name Subversive Agents of change change that is designed to strip us of our individual and collective fundamental American Constitutional rights change to our economic system and our free market economy Change to our cultural heritage Change that would stie our Freedom of speech, change that would strip us of our right to bear arms change that mandates that we buy health insurance change to the very fundamental foundations and fabric of our American exceptionalism. Barack Hussein Obama promised Change you can believe in. You had better believe in that change because it is as real as it is deadly. I can tell you that none of what they advocate is contained in our Constitution. In fact the core beliefs of American Democratic Socialists and Progressives are in direct conict to our Constitution, yet 81 current Democratic Members of the House who have taken an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic are actively seeking to undermine our Constitution. Since the founding of our nation Patriots and Statesmen have been repeatedly admonished us: Freedom is never free and our individual freedoms and liberties are fragile. During the years immediately following WWII our memories were fresh about Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan seeking to dominate the world. Fortunately, America and her allies prevailed. However as soon as we defeated the Axis powers we then faced the great Iron Curtin and the Cold War. As some of you may remember during those years we had Civil Defense drills, we got under our desk at school to survive a Soviet nuclear attack. I still vividly remember the yellow, blue and red Civil Defense signs. Some people built bunkers in their backyards. America and Americans knew we were at war because we lived it. The enemy and the threats we faced were clear and well dened. We were at War in Korea and the Cold War enveloped each of us. The House Un-American Activities Committee held hearings and we saw those hearings on Movietone news in black and white lm clips at our local movie theaters. Today, those Communists of the 1930s have repackaged themselves they shed their name and quietly inltrated and hijacked the Democratic Party. Today, they are known as American Democratic Socialists and Democratic Progressives they use lofty rhetoric like Freedom, liberty, equality, but what do they really mean by the words they use?. Only a few of their words are actually in our Constitution. To assure fairness and understanding, I will read you their words and not mine. I am going to read directly from their writings because I want to provide you with a small glimpse into Who they are and What their agenda for America really is. Before I begin to speak about American Democratic socialists and progressives, I believe that it is incumbent that I disclose to that you my remarks today are not intended to be a political speech. I am not a politician. I have never held nor have I ever sought political ofce. I have no political party afliation. I am an American. I am an Independent. I make that disclosure because you have a right to know if I have a political agenda. From a legal standpoint, I am a conservative, Constitutional strict constructionist who after careful and detailed study believe that our Federal Constitution was framed by the founders of our American Republic to protect individual freedoms, rights and liberties from the tyranny of the majority. I believe that the Constitution is a restraint on government, not a mandate to allow Government manage and control every facet of our daily lives. I believe that the key to American Exceptionalism is a capitalist free market economy unfettered by onerous Government Regulation. I hold the opinion that the 10th Amendment to our Constitution means precisely what it says: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
