Watts. The 2012 Florida Legislature designated Highway 90 the Ben G. Watts Highway from the Jackson County line to Holmes County, and the sign was unveiled in a ceremony at the Washington County Agricultural Center. Watts said he was honored to have the highway named after him. In my youth, Highway 90 was the street of dreams into and out of Chipley, Watts said. In my day it was to Chipley what Interstate 10 is now. Watts served as secretary of the DOT from 1989-97, and District 3 was the beginning point of his career, according to the DOT website. Watts was a registered professional engineer and graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point with a bachelors degree in science. He served ve years with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers before Ben (Watts) was the right man for the times. He brought the department and the Legislature together and made the DOT one of the best in the nation.

We believe in the future of newspapers, both in print and online. We have to be great at both. These newspapers embody Halifax Media Groups philosophy for providing local news that no one else can deliver. About Halifax Media Group Founded in 2010, Halifax Media is headquartered in Daytona Beach. The companys investment group includes Stephens Capital Partners, JAARSSS Media, and Redding Investments. The group consists of 36 newspapers and af liated websites, published in six states, primarily in the Southeast. Halifax Medias strategy is to invest long-term capital in quality companies positioned in strong markets that are closely connected to the community. offered to the company. The $1.4 million will be given to Marianna. The city will oversee its distribution to make improvements to the building, which it owns. State Rep. Marti Coley, R-Marianna, was credited with working to secure this funding for the city. After recently visiting more than 15 rural counties statewide, I know how important these jobs are to Jackson County, said Gov. Rick Scott. Home Source Internationals choice of Floridas Great Northwest demonstrates that all of our communities are competitive, regardless of their size and population. It also shows that Florida possesses the talent, resources and business climate to encourage companies to expand and create jobs in our state. joining DOT as a district roadway maintenance engineer. In 1984, he became a deputy engineer in District 5, and in 1987 he became District 5 secretary. In early 1989, Watts was named assistant secretary of operations of DOTs seven districts and Floridas Turnpike, according to the website. In August 1987, then-Gov. Bob Martinez appointed him secretary of transportation. Watts was retained as secretary of DOT in 1991 by Gov. Lawton Chiles. I cannot begin to thank all those who helped me along the way, Watt said. It is an honor to follow in his footsteps, said Ananth Prasad, current secretary of the DOT. When Watts became secretary, the DOT was in dire straits and was under funded by about $800 million, Prasad said. Ben was the right man for the times. He brought the department and the Legislature together and made the DOT one of the best in the nation. Prasad said Watts primary rule for the DOT was in place running a state agency aint rocket science. State Rep. Brad Drake said Watts left a big mark in Tallahassee with his work at the DOT. Any time you talk to anyone about transportation in Tallahassee, the common denominator is the name Ben Watts, he said. You have no idea he number of people I run into who mention you. Jane Potter, Watts former English teacher at Chipley High School, was the person who sought to have the highway named after him. If it wasnt for the vision of Jane Potter, we wouldnt be here today, Drake said. In 1963, when that tall, blondeheaded boy walked into my 11thgrade English classroom, I knew he would excel in life and be a leader, Porter said. I dont know anyone who has had a greater impact on transportation in the state of Florida than Ben Watts, said Frank Carlile, former assistant secretary of the DOT. He was able to accomplish so much because he always stuck to his principles of faith, honesty, integrity and dignity.

BRIEFS from page A1 Drug roundup nets multiple arrests From staff reports The Washington County Drug Task Force, comprising the Chipley Police Department and the Washington County Sheriffs Of ce, has reported multiple arrests as narcotics investigations that have spanned several months have concluded. The investigation included the sale of marijuana, crack cocaine and controlled substances as well as the manufacturing of cocaine and illegal possession of rearms. During this roundup we were able to extend our reach not only to local drug dealers, but had the unique opportunity to apprehend a suspect for the manufacturing of crack cocaine, said Chipley Police Chief Kevin Crews. Anytime we have the opportunity to stop someone responsible for producing crack cocaine in our community, we have had a successful day. Arrested were: Dana David Johnson, 43, of Chipley for sale of crack cocaine and manufacturing crack cocaine. Patricia Ann Dampier, 37, of Chipley for sale of crack cocaine. Jeffery Fern Martin, 37, of Chipley for sale of methamphetamines. David Christopher Chris Baxley, 38, Chipley for sale of opium. Linda Fae Wood, 40, of Chipley for sale of crack cocaine (2 counts). Julious C. Russ, 77, of Chipley for sale of opium (traf cking). Julie Darlene Bledsoe, 43, of Chipley for sale of marijuana. Robert Martin Marty French, 55, of Caryville for sale of opium (traf cking), possession of a weapon by convicted felon and violation of probation. The numbers tell a very small part of a much larger story of success as a result of this recent roundup, said Sheriff Bobby Haddock. We were able to not only apprehend suspects who were dealing in traf cking amounts of illegal drugs, we were also able to diffuse an active methamphetamine lab that was within a few feet of a 50 pound bag of ammonia nitrate creating the potential for a life threatening explosion within close proximity to several residences. The Washington County Drug Task Force asks that anyone with information on illegal drug activity contact the sheriffs of ce at 638-TIPS (8477) or by email at tips@wcso.us.

Call today for your personal appointment. Q1. Will the bank take my house? No. The title to the property remains in your name. You must keep the taxes and insurance current on the property. Q2. Does my home have to be free and clear? No. Many people get a Reverse Mortgage to pay off their current mortgage or equity thereby eliminating those monthly payments. Q3. How much money can I receive? Three factors are taken into consideration: Date of birth of the youngest person on the title, your zip code and the value of your home. Q4. Is the money I receive taxable? No. The IRS treats these funds as borrowed money. This is a loan, not income. Q5. What happens to my home when I pass away? The loan is repaid to the lender through the sale or refinancing of your home by your heirs. Any proceeds in excess of the amount owed to the lender belong to your heirs. You only pay for the funds you used plus interest. Q6. What if I dont use all the money? You and yours heirs are required to pay back ONLY the outstanding balance that is due. Any money remaining after the mortgage is paid, regardless of the home value, goes to your heirs. Q7. Can I be forced to sell or vacate my home if the loan amount exceeds the value of my home? No. The FHA mortgage insurance guarantees they pay the difference to the lender. You cannot be forced to sell your home if the loan exceeds its value.

Special To The News CHIPLEY The Wash ington County Republican Party held its annual Rea gan Day Dinner on Tuesday at the Washington County Ag Center in Chipley and a large crowd of attendees enjoyed dinner and net working, highlighted by an address by Florida Sen. Don Gaetz. Washington County Re publican Party members decided this years annual fundraiser (originally titled Lincoln Day and changed to Reagan Day after the death of the president) would more effectively try to enfranchise voters, es pecially those with a con servative mindset, and this event celebrates the United States Constitution and encourages people to get involved in the political process. This years theme was Faith, Freedom and Fam ily and the Republican party invited all conser vative-minded persons to join the event, which included an address by Blaise Ingoglia, author of Government Gone Wild and a question and answer session with Gaetz, Rep. Marti Coley and Rep. Brad Drake. Free copies of the U.S. Constitution were distrib uted. Ingoglia engaged the crowd with a passionate explanation of the current national scal situation, and Gaetz addressed a va riety of issues including the Stand Your Ground leg islation, education, taxes and the need for personal responsibility.

By BRIAN GODDIN Special To The News After almost two decades of play ing a very important role in ghting a few thousand Northwest Florida wildres while protecting possibly in the tens of thousands of homes along the way, Chipola Forestry Center duty ofcer Starla Peters is moving on to what she believes will be a new adventure. I do love my job, and I love dis patching but its time for a new chal lenge in my life, Peters said. Thats the life-long Holmes County natives optimistic view of not only her past service but also whats to come. Peters has been a duty ofcer for the Florida Forest Services Chipola Forestry Center which serves the seven central panhandle counties of Walton, Holmes, Washington, Jack son, Calhoun, Gulf and Bay. In ad dition to dispatching on the radio to Florida Forest Service wildland re ghters and crews during wildres, she and other duty ofcers like her are also responsible for greeting and issuing prescribed re authori zations to the members of the public usually over the phone often in the morning hours in those same seven counties. It is estimated that Starla alone has issued several thousand burn authorizations during her al most 19 years serving the commu nity since September 1993. Peters will continue to be employed by the Florida Forest Service, but her new role is a joint venture with the U.S. Forest Service. Although it will be based in the FFSs Forest Protec tion Bureau in Tallahassee, she will work from the Florida Interagency Coordination Center. The rst-of-itskind position is the Dispatch Center management specialist. Peters has been selected from several other highly qualied people from similar dispatching and leader ship backgrounds. She will continue to use her skills and experience in coordinating and communications although perhaps on a much higher and broader level as she interacts among national agencies particu larly in times of great need and wide-spread disaster relief efforts like hurricanes, oods, and wildres for example. Thought of by her fellow duty of cers as talkative and outgoing, Pe ters will be missed from all angles: on the radio, over the phone and in person. From Staff Reports NEBRASKA CITY Neb. Americas forestland is a prized natural resource, and anyone can help plant much-needed trees in these vital areas by joining the Arbor Day Foundation. Through the Replanting Our National Forests campaign, the Arbor Day Foundation will honor each new member who joins the Foundation in July by planting 10 trees in forests that have been devastated by wildres, insects and disease. The cost for joining the Ar bor Day Foundation is a $10 donation. Americas national for ests face enormous challeng es, including unprecedented wildres that have left a back log of nearly one million acres in need of replanting. The Arbor Day Foundation has worked with the United States Forest Service for more than 20 years to plant trees in forests in need. Our national forests need protection because they provide habitat for wildlife, keep the air clean and help ensure safe drink ing water for more than 180 mil lion Americans. Keeping our forests healthy is vital to the health of people and the entire planet, said John Rosenow, founder and chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. By plant ing trees in our national for ests, we will preserve precious natural resources and the bene ts they provide for generations to come. To join the Arbor Day Founda tion and help plant trees in our national forests, send a $10 mem bership contribution to Replant ing Our National Forests, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave., Nebraska City, NE 68410, or visit arborday.org/july.

WANT MORE? Find us online at chipleypaper.com friend us on Facebook or tweet us @WCN_HCT Saturday, June 30, 2012 I was recently talking with someone who is dissatis ed with her religion. I want to leave my religion, she said, but I just cant imagine having nowhere to go. I pointed out that theres always somewhere else to go. Sometimes, people act as if religion doesnt involve conscious choices. For them, its as if religion were an airborne virus that one mysteriously catches, rather than something entered into voluntarily. Even if you had no choice about religious matters during your youth, being raised in a religious tradition doesnt mean that youre required by law to stay in it forever. It amazes me how many people forget that they have a wide array of choices. They get married because they think they must and spawn children for the same reason. In every facet of their lives, they act as if they dont have choices and options all along the way. Im not even talking about people living in repressive nations where choices are not widely available but about people right here in the United States, the land of the free. At any rate, as I told my friend, theres always someplace to go. If you leave a religion, you have at least three immediate choices. You can join another religion, become non-religious or seek alternative spiritual and/or secular options. Nowhere to go? With the nearly unbelievable number of denominations represented within Christianity alone, not to mention the options offered by other faith groups, the notion of having nowhere to go is absurd. Add secular options to that, and the problem becomes the opposite: theres almost an overwhelming abundance of options. The truth is that life is full of choices. In this country, we generally have choices of who to marry (or whether to marry at all), how many children we have (if we decide to have any), what religion to join (if any), where to work, what organizations to af liate with and so forth. Every single day, we make decisions. The important thing to remember is that these decisions can often have lasting consequences. For instance, if you decide to have a child, youve made a decision that is not only going to affect both you and the child for life, but everyone around you and even the lives of complete strangers. Your child will also be consuming resources as he or she grows, so the decision to bring a child into the world literally affects the entire planet. Your religious choices can impact others, too. If your religion isnt helping make you a more ethical person, it can have a negative effect not only on you but on everyone else. For instance, if you were to join a religion that promotes bigotry, your religious decision directly affects other peoples lives. Youre effectively telling your entire community that berating others for being different is acceptable. At the very least, youre saying that certain people are not your equals, which will de nitely have an effect upon those individuals and upon the community as a whole. If you adopt a religion and then force other people (such as family members) into it, youre also impacting other peoples lives. On the other hand, if your religion improves and uplifts you both spiritually and morally, thats something positive that you can pass on to the whole world. If youre making progress morally, you cant help but improve your own life and the lives of those around you. If you leave your religion, dont worry about having nowhere to go. Even in the event that you nd yourself in such an isolated area that you cant nd other practitioners of your new belief system, chances are good that you can nd them online. Interacting with people on the Internet is no substitute for real-life experience, but it can provide a sense of spiritual community at times. You could, of course, also turn your thoughts inward. Are you practicing your beliefs for your own knowledge and improvement, or to impress others? Some people mistake the social aspect of religion for the religion itself. Spend some time alone, taking a moment to seriously think about what youre doing and where youre headed spiritually. Even if theres nowhere to go in terms of uniting with like-minded believers, you can always concentrate on the inner journey. Go within.
