Connect With Us 24/7 Ofcer avoids deer, crashes into tree By Cecilia Spears Staff Writer cspears@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Local law enforce ment walked away with scratches after an accident totaled his patrol car Dec. 31 between Chipley and Bonifay on State 90. According to a report by Florida Highway Patrol, Wash ington County Sheriffs Ofcer Charles Williams was respond ing to an emergency call at 6:15 a.m. in Washington County traveling west on State 90 when out of the dense fog a deer ran out in front of Williams patrol vehicle. Swerving to avoid the deer, Williams patrol car rotated clock wise and then hit a tree on the north shoulder just west of Vista Lane, Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Steve Preston said. Williams received noncapacitating injuries and was taken to the Northwest Florida Community Hospital, Preston said. The 2010 Crown Victoria received an estimated $20,000 in damages.

Washington County voters will decide whether to allow slot machines Jan. 31. SLOT MACHINE SQUABBLE By Ali HelgothFlorida Freedom N ewspapers EBRO When Washington County residents vote at the end of this month whether to al low installation of slot machines in Ebro, their decision could have wide-reaching economic impacts. The addition of up to 2,000 slot machines at Ebro Grey hound Park is part of a proposed expansion of the property into a $300 million contemporary resort hotel and entertainment center that would include 300 to 500 hotel rooms, retail stores, restaurants and an entertain ment venue. Expansion would be on the parks existing 36 acres, of which about 18 are occupied. The facility includes greyhound racing and a poker room. With the expansion comes jobs, an estimated 1,200 to 1,500, including 300 construc tion-related jobs, and the addi tion of millions of dollars to the countys revenue, park owners Stockton Hess and Mark Hess said. We feel like its a great thing for Washington County, its a great thing for Bay County, its a great thing for Ebro, Mark Hess told Florida Freedom Newspapers on Thursday. Not everyone agrees, though. Alcus Brock is part of Citi zens for Positive Development of Washington County, an orga nization that opposes the addi tion of slot machines at Ebro. We dont see gambling as anything positive, he said. It is an uncertain thing, and it brings some undesirable things with it. The biggest hurdle to ap proval is opposition because of the moral issue, Mark Hess said. Others say they are con cerned about an increase in crime, Stockton Hess said. Although they said they re spect the opinion of those who oppose the addition of slot ma chines on moral grounds, they dont believe the addition will result in increased crime. Weve been around since 1954, and weve had little or no crime, Mark Hess said. A message left with the Washington County Sheriffs Ofce on Thursday to discuss crime around the park was not returned. Brock said he is concerned slot machine gambling is addic tive and he is skeptical about the projected job growth. According to information from the Rhode Island Gam bling Treatment Program, BACKERS: EBRO GAMBLING WOULD CREATE JOBS, REVENUE The addition of up to 2,000 slot machines at Ebro Greyhound Park is part of a proposed expansion of the property into a $300 million contemporary resort hotel and entertainment center that would include 300 to 500 hotel rooms, retail stores, restaurants and an entertainment venue.

Miss Buttery meets with Garden Club | A2 Yard sale negotiations take a turn for the positive By Cecilia Spears Staff Writer cspears@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The topic of yard sales has been a hot topic for Chipley for a couple months, and it was during the Chipley City Councils workshop on Thursday that they be gan to make some positive headway. Ive went through vari ous cities denitions of garage sales, rummage sales, yard sales and the like; if you can kind of give me a feel for what youd like to see I can work from there, City Administra tor Dan Miner said. But I dont think this is about yard sales, but people us ing yard sales as a busi ness. It was about buying things and then reselling them every weekend, and thats a business. After much discussion the council set up a set of standards to be rened by the attorney and then be delivered to the next Chi pley City Council meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday. The city is wishing to limit the amount of yard sales per person per site to six a year. The yard sale will need a permit, but it is free and will be issued out like a burn permit. This is where the person wishing to set up a yard sale will call the city and that per son will be issued a permit number, which they will have to identify on their yard sale sign. One yard sale can run for three days on a week end: Friday, Saturday and Sunday. If someone is wishing to have more than six yard sales in that year then they will be required to pur chase a peddlers license, which allows them to sell at that location, with permis sion of the landowner, all year round for $75. It used to be that once they paid the $75 theyd still have to check in once a month for whatever rea son. I request that the city See YARD SALE A2

Local A2 | Washington County News Saturday, January 7, 2012 computerized gambling includ ing video slots, poker, keno and other games have produced the most addictive form of gam bling in history. Gaming industry proponents have criticized similar reports, saying a 2011 Minutes segment on computerized gambling included discredited arguments that gambling critics have been making for more than 20 years, ac cording to a report in the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Despite the opposition, Mark Hess said based on a poll he expects the referendum will be approved if those who say they support the ad dition of slot machines vote. The referendum coincides with the Florida Republican Presiden tial Preference Primary, and fewer than half of the countys 13,882 registered voters are Republicans, which could affect turnout. Supervisor of Elections Carol Finch Grifn said its difcult to predict how high voter turnout will be, but she said after a political ac tion committee (PAC) formed to promote the referendum (Grow Our Local Economy) and sent out a yer encouraging people to vote by mail, the phone has been ringing off the hook. The PAC is backed by Mark and Stockton Hess. Early voting begins Jan. 21, and Election Day is Jan. 31. All regis tered voters, regardless of party afliation, can vote in the slot ma chine referendum. Although build-out is expected over three to ve years, park owners said the economic benets to Washington County would begin immediately. Initially, there would be temporary expansion to allow the installation of slot machines, but the rst phase of construction would include a gam ing and hospitality component that is expected to create 400 to 500 jobs. At full build-out, job creation would include clerical, hospitality, gaming, retail, restaurant and convention center positions, among others. The facility employs 225 people, about 145 of them full-time em ployees, and has a payroll of about $2.8 million. New tax revenueOther money would go to state and local governments through a tax and a binding agreement. A state law allows voters to de cide if slot machines are to be in stalled at pari-mutuel facilities that have provided a full schedule of live racing for two consecutive calen dar years immediately preceding its application. With that approval, a state license must be obtained. Part of the licensing require ments includes payment of a 35 percent state tax on win money or taxable revenue, which is equal to the amount of money put into a slot machine minus the amount paid out. That money goes into an edu cation trust fund. The owners of the park have proposed a legally bind ing agreement that would direct an additional 1.5 to 3 percent of taxable revenue to the county government to be used for emergency medical services, law enforcement, re pro tection services, the school board and the city of Ebro. The payments would be made monthly, and they estimate they will have paid about $2 million to the county at the end of the rst full year of operations. Mark Hess called the estimate conservative. He said they intend to work back ward from projected revenue to de termine a percentage that would equal about $2 million the rst year. With that percentage in place, the amount the county would receive each year would go up or down, de pending on performance at Ebro. As we do better the county does better, Mark Hess said. That amount would be in addi tion to other taxes the facility pays to the county. Property taxes are about $270,850 per year. A market study indicated there could be 1.2 million visitors per year and that taxable revenue could be equal to $60 million the rst year and $68 million the second year of operation, Mark Hess said. Based on the $60 million estimate, it would take more than a 3 percent levy to equal $2 million. Stockton Hess said they expect their customers to be those who currently leave the area to gamble in places like Biloxi, Miss., and those who would choose to come to Ebro as a destination because of its proximity to the beach. GAINER ROAD OVER FLAT CREEK BRIDGE REPLACEMENT Washington County The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will host a public information meeting regarding the proposed bridge replacement on Gainer Road over Flat Creek Tuesday, January 17, 2012, from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. CST.

Dressed as a Passion ower, McGlamery start ed by reading her poem, Discovery America, and then shared her passion for ying owers, aka butteries. She recalled childhood memories of butteries in Georgia and told of fol lowing the Monarchs mi gration from Canada to Mexico. She reported on her three terms as Flor ida State Buttery chair man and her efforts to have the Zebra Longwing named the Florida State Buttery. The Zebra Longwing is the only buttery that lives throughout Florida. Besides its beautiful color, you know it by its ight slow and lazy, kinda Southern, McGlamery said with a smile. McGlamery recommended tulip poplars, wild cherry, paw paws, sassafras, spice bushes, buddleia, lantana, milkweed and passionowers to attract specic butteries to a back yard buttery garden. Plant them, and they will come, maybe not today, but they will come, she said. She concluded her presen tation with a reading of her renowned poem, Zebra Mas querade from her book, Red Clay Pots, which is in its third printing. Following luncheon, the regu lar business meeting was held. The Downtown Pots and the Sundial Garden were discussed. Plans are underway for the Eng lish Tea & Garden Walk featur ing two local gardens will be March 31 at the farmers market. Tentative dates have been set to visit KMS Elementary School to teach fresh and dried ower arranging for entries in the 4-H Youth Fair. Plans also were made to honor McGlamery on Florida Arbor Day, Jan. 20. The February meeting will be Feb. 1 at the Nelson home and will include a eld trip to Hoovers Mill.

CHANGING OF THE GUARD Incoming Worshipful Master for 2012 of Wausau Lodge 39 Tommy Barnes, receives the gavel Dec. 29 from installing ofcer R.W. Alan T. Bush, past master and past district deputy grand master of Florida. Garden Club learns about joy of butteriesdo away with that require ment, Miner said. Just let them pay their $75 for that year and be done with it till its time for them to renew the next year. Mayor Linda Cain said the main target wasnt those who lived here wish ing to hold a yard sale to raise additional money in this poor economy, but it was to target out-of-town venders who came in to town under the guise of be ing yard-sellers to peddle their wares. The city attorney also agreed to look into exemp tions for charitable orga nizations and non-prot yard sales as well as a sign ordinance to require the permit to be placed on the sign, that the sign hold the date of the yard sale and that the signs be removed within 24 hours after the yard sale or there be a $25 ne issued per sign that has to be removed by the city. A more dened issu ance is scheduled to be presented at the next city council meeting. Council member Rog er Sloan brought up the prospect of the Mongoven Building. Weve gave that build ing a thorough looking over, and weve found that building is quite salvage able, Sloan said. The building is measured to be 60 squares in construction standards, and its about $100 per square to repair to what is considered dried in, so its estimated around $50,000 to get that building dried in. Thats to stop the damage being caused by the water com ing in just to get started on repairing the inside of the building. Council member Kevin Russell recommended they ask a structural engi neer to examine the build ing before making any de cisions and Miner said one had volunteered to check out the building for free. The city agreed to send a letter to the children of Mongoven to request a pos sible price for the building and to invite them to the next workshop to disuss it further. Russell said he had some issues with a recent project by the Chipley Re development Agency. I went to the last CRA meeting, and Ive got a problem with their Alley way Project, Russell said. The project is estimated at a cost of $40,000, and I nd that putting $40,000 into one alleyway is a waste of money. Russell asked that the CRA present the city council with a report of what they are doing to encourage business own ers to remodel and x up their building fronts. He said all he was seeing was the businesses plastered then painted brown, plas tered then painted brown, plastered then painted brown. Forty thousand dollars on an alleyway is like put ting a band aide on a dead pig, Russell said. They should be doing more with businesses and not invest ing in something that no ones going to see unless they walk through it to get from one parking lot to another. Former council mem ber Cheryl McCall sug gested the Washington County Chamber of Com merce be held accountable for monthly reports much like the department heads of the city are. We need them to have accountability, McCall said. Miner reported the next and last reading of the Compression Air Breaks/ Jake Break Ordinance will be Tuesday and there was a slight issue with sign placing between the city and the Department of Transportation. They dont want us to put the sign on a DOT right-of-way, so well have to gure out how to place the sign so that everyone can see it coming into town, Miner said. An issue had arrived about using a section of land that use to be the old landll for an RC track. The issue is that it may be encroaching on a longstanding organization called the Academy of Model Aeronautics. Both organizations came to the workshop and agreed to get together about possible negotiations to bring to the next meeting. Miner reported Music Park just recently had a face lift and encouraged the council members to check out the new look. Chipley Police Chief Kevin Crews reported the latest armed robbery at Walls Jr. Mart on State 77, which is the third armed robbery in a year. We were just bragging about how safe things were here, and then we have three almost back to back in an area thats never ex perienced it before, Crews said. Its crazy. Miner reported the en ergy conservation grant project will be starting in the next couple of weeks, which means replacing the street lamps and stop lights with more energy ef cient ones.

COMMUNITY CALENDAR The Kiwanis Club of Chipley held its rst meeting of 2012 on Tuesday, Jan. 3 and received updates about two new initiatives to further improve the responses from the Washington County Sheriffs Ofce (WCCSO). The program was presented by Andrea Gainey, Public Relations for Washington County Sheriffs ofce and Captain Randy Brown, who is responsible for Administrative operations. Andrea Gainey spoke rst about a new interactive way to keep the community connected and informed through opt-in email, text message and web published public safety alerts. In addition, the new system provides a truly anonymous tip method for the public to alert the Sheriffs ofce about situations of concern that might need further followup from the WCSO. Known as Tip411, anyone can contact the Sheriff about suspicious behavior or circumstances by texting WCSO, 847411 (tip411). You can then exchange information via normal texting, but the software erases the source address (IP or Cell #) on the rst contact, so the person making the contact is 100% anonymous. This function can be accessed by texting, through the social media for the Sheriffs Ofce, or through website links. While Crime Stoppers and Neighborhood Watch have helped involve the public, this new technology is a major development. Through this system, the public can also subscribe to receive various alerts via email that can be targeted to your immediate area of the county. For more information, visit www. wcso.us. Life threatening emergencies or a crime in progress should be reported to 9-1-1, with other emergencies reported to 638-6111. The TIPS phone line is 638-8477 (TIPS), and you can now also report suspicious activities at tips@ wcso.us or the new texting link. Captain Brown then introduced the new Public Service Ofcer Program, which in some counties is known as the Community Service Ofcer Program. The purpose of the PSO is to handle Sheriffs ofce duties that do not require a sworn law enforcement ofcer, such as trafc control, vandalism reports, parades, funeral escort, and other tasks that can free a sworn deputy to focus on law enforcement issues. To start the program, Captain Brown is looking for 6 volunteers who will serve about 16 hours per month, can pass the normal background checks for a deputy sheriff, and can complete the training program focused on the limited duties for a PSO. When on duty, a PSO might be assigned a sheriffs ofce vehicle that will have amber lights and radio equipment, but if a PSO encounters a criminal activity or a situation requiring a sworn LEO, then the PSO will report and wait for a sworn deputy to arrive. WCSO operates a Sheriffs Reserve that is composed of sworn deputies to augment normal sheriffs law enforcement functions, but the PSO is a separate program to perform administrative and support functions that do not require a sworn LEO. For more information about the PSO program, contact Captain Brown at 638-6111. The Kiwanis Club of Chipley has been providing support to youth oriented events and programs for 71 years and last year supported 30 organizations throughout the county. There are still some cans of the gourmet nuts available from Kiwanians and certain businesses that have a display for $20 for a 3 pound can (no peanuts). The club meets Tuesdays at Patillos restaurant in the middle of the WHTC campus at noon. For an invitation, contact any Kiwanian or David Solger, Membership Chairperson at 638-1276.
