Connect With Us 24/7 WEEKEND Washington County News 7 candidates vying for 3 city council seats From Staff Reports CHIPLEY Residents head to the polls Tuesday to elect three Chipley City Council members in the 2012 city General Election. Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. at Chipley City Hall, 1442 Jackson Ave. If a run-off election is necessitated, it will be Sept. 11. All city residents within the city limits who were registered to vote by July 8 are eligible to vote in this election, regardless of where they live in the city. City elections are nonpartisan, and political party af liation does not apply. The Washington County News contacted the candidates with a questionnaire to provide a pro le of the men and women seeking election to public of ce. Questions included: What made you decide to run for this of ce? What qualities and experience do you have which make you qualied for this of ce? What other political experience have you had? Are you a veteran? If so, list branch of service. What challenges do you think the of ce you are seeking will face in the near future, and what would you do to meet those challenges? Tell our readers whatever you want them to know about you before they head to the polls. Responses have been edited for space and clarity and begin on Page A2 Voters return to the polls on Aug. 14 for the statewide Primary Election, which includes several county and state elections. See precincts on Page A3 Part I in a three-part series about a rst-time owner of a racing greyhound, a rst-time owner of a greyhound racing kennel and the dog making his racing debut this summer at Ebro Greyhound Park. By PAT McCANN 747-5068 | @patmccann pmmcann@pcnh.com EBRO This literally begins with a lick and a promise. Sarah Lucas, who lives a few hops from Ebro Greyhound Park, had promised one of the greyhound pups from a small litter of three to Joe Watson, her former partner for four years in SL Kennel. Lucas brought the male puppy to the track and the of ce of Teresa Duncan, who works in administration at Ebro, where Lucas was County: Fee needed for park safety, maintenance By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Most recreational activities are not free, so why should 40 parks maintained by Washington County remain free to the public? And how can the county maintain the parks in a safe, sanitary fashion without resources? Those are questions County Administrator Steve Joyner and Public Services Director David Corbin have been asking, and now they are working with County Attorney Jeff Goodman to try and devise an ordinance establishing a recreation fee for county residents. At the July 19 Board of County Commissioners meeting, the discussion centered around the use of boat ramps and camping facilities. But the problems with the parks are wide-ranging. What I want to get out to people is that we arent just wanting to charge fees just for the sake of charging fees, Joyner said. Id like the county to have a better understanding of our motives. Safety is a prime motive Joyner and Corbin both cited, listing a number of instances at county parks that illustrate the need for some sort of oversight. We would like to use this revenue to hire a park ranger, someone who can go around and keep an eye on the parks, Joyner said. The parks have become ad hoc garbage dumps, meth cooking sites and even a garage in one instance. We had one person hook up a hoist under the pavilion and used it to change out a motor, Corbin said. He used the park like a shop. The work crews also have found the remnants of shake and bake meth labs in the trash at the parks, which necessitates having the sheriffs of ce come out for disposal.

I have been married 45 years to the former Jane E. Young and am the father of two sons and grandfather of ve. I am Deacon and lifelong member of Mr. Ararat First Missionary Baptist Church in Chipley. If you elect me as your Chipley City Council Member-At-Large, I will communicate and work effectively toward common goals as a team member to ensure compliance with board policies, procedures and all relevant legal and ethical standards. I will maintain availability, serve and attend council meetings and actively participate in city council matters. I will value and respect the views and worthiness of each citizen and establish innovative ways to make new ides work for the betterment of our citizens now and in the future. I am a graduate of Roulhac High School and the Washington-Holmes Technical Center with a certi cate in commercial printing/ advanced apprenticeship level. I have been af liates and served for 17 years in various capacities within the city of Chipley. I have been a part of the Advisory Task Force Board, Neighborhood Watch, First Start Anti-Drug Coalition, Enterprise Zone Board, Enterprise Zone Development Agency and the Code Enforcement Board.

I am currently serving as city councilman and have made sure that the peoples voices have been heard. I will make the peoples voices heard in the future as well. Since I have been in of ce, I have had several projects completed that had not been previously attended to. My goal is to help give the city back to the people. I operated and owned a 200man company in Florida and was president of one of the largest IBEWs in Florida and on the executive board and negotiation committee. I was previously in the Army Airborne Infantry and am a Vietnam veteran. We have got to stop the taxes from being driven higher in Chipley. We need better workmanship from contractors coming into town. We need to stop wasteful spending in our town. There are a lot of challenges to be faced, and if they are not addressed, I believe the city of Chipley will see hard times. As you head to the polls, take into consideration I have proven my leadership skills, treated all people fairly with honesty and integrity. I have always listened to any citizen and will continue to help anyone and everyone solve any and all problems they have now and in the future. COUNCIL MEMBER-AT-LARGE ELLIS W. REED Chipley | City Council Member-At-Large ELLIS W. REED ROGER SLOAN Chipley | City Council at Large Incumbent ROGER SLOAN Robert Brown was out of town on a business trip and unable to respond to the questions, according to his wife, Alyson Brown. ROBERT BRET BROWN Chipley | City Council Member-At-Large CITY COUNCIL WARD 1 LEVINGSTON D. HODGES JR. Chipley | City Council. Ward 1 Hodges was called out of town on business and could not return his answers to the of ce before press time. I wanted to do my part in working in the community to help the city of Chipley to grow and prosper. I was elected to the city council in 2002. I am a local business owner. My husband and I own Rustin Vault & Monument. I handle all aspects in running the of ce, which consists of customer service, business management and accounting. I have 10 years of experience in working for the city. During this time, I have taken several classes for training with the Florida League of Cities. I feel I can make educated and skilled decisions for the city. Before I was elected into of ce, I served as an ambassador for the Washington County Chamber of Commerce and also on the membership committee. Also, I have served on the Glenwood City Cemetery Committee and the Chipley Planning and Zoning Committee. No, I have never served in the Armed Forces. But I am so thankful to the men and women that have fought for our country, past and present. People need to realize that freedom does not come free. They put their life on the line every day so we can live in a safe world. With the economy the way it is, balancing the budget is going to be a huge challenge. It will be hard to fund all aspects of the city without cutting services or having to lay employees off. I promise to work hard to use every tax dollar wisely and frugal, so the city can continue to run smoothly. I also will strive to bring economic development to the downtown area. I will also continue to work with DOT (the Department of Transportation) for sidewalks on Highway 77 for the elderly and disabled. I have also been working closely with the city police department to crack down on speeders using our side roads for a cut-thru. People need to feel safe in their neighborhoods. I grew up on a farm so I know the meaning of hard work. I am a devoted wife and mother and also a breast cancer survivor, so I know how important each day is. If re-elected, I promise to continue to do my very best for each and every citizen of Chipley. I will continue to be available to listen to the concerns of all citizens. I promise to work with the other members of the council to do what is in the best interest of the entire city. I will also continue to support all of our wonderful employees, so they can work in an environment without being intimated or harassed. I would just like to thank the citizens of Chipley for letting me serve them. I hope you will continue to give me your vote and support on Aug. 7.

Approved by Karen Kinser Rustin I am Linda Cain, a candidate for re-election to the Chipley City Council, Ward Four. I live at 706 Third St., Chipley. I am pleased to offer this response to questions submitted by the managing editor of the Washington County News. Two responses requested were party af liation and veterans status. Although the city council election is nonpartisan, I will state I am a registered Democrat who votes my convictions, not party af liation. I am not a veteran, but am proud and supportive of every veteran who has served our country. In 1988, I ran for this council position hoping to be an active voice for all the citizens and employees of the city. I was given the opportunity to begin my service on the council 24 years ago. I attended the seminar for elected of cials at Chipola College and the Advanced Elected Of cial class held in Panama City. The Northwest Florida League of Cities and the Florida League of Cities assist the city in answering questions, making contacts and obtaining funding for all aspects of city operation. I am proud to be a member of both and attend meetings as often as possible when the budget permits. Many needed projects could not be completed without grant money. The council and management have been able to receive funding through grants for such projects as needed upgrades to the wastewater treatment facilities; purchase of the Northwest Florida Campgrounds to expand the Pals Park complex; the renovation of the old city hall, ensuring this historic building will continue to be a vital part of our community; the construction of a 400,000 gallon water storage tank at the old Roulhac Middle School; and beauti cation of all four entrances into Chipley. For any future projects, my goal is to ensure money spent will clearly show the investments were necessary and bene cial to all citizens. We are living in a time where every penny has to be spent wisely, while continuing to provide services each citizen expects from the city. Monies are not owing as freely from the state and federal governments. This will probably continue for the next few years. As your representative on the council, I will pledge to do all I can to ensure the vital functions of the city continue without interruption. I could not make this pledge without the work our city employees do every day. They play a vital role in our success. I want to make sure they are able to continue their work in an atmosphere of cooperation, not intimidation. I have always had a concern for people, no matter their status. I have strived to listen and respond to your needs and concerns. I will continue to do this to the best of my ability. You will always have access to me to discuss any city or personal issues. I will continue to respond with promptness and professionalism to all complaints received. I feel I have gained the experience needed to provide positive input in all aspects of Chipleys growth and management. I have served on a council that has worked in unity with the city management and employees to make the decisions required to ensure smooth operation of every aspect of city life. I have enjoyed serving you on the council. Remember, without the assistance and support of the citizens and the city employees, the council would not be able to accomplish anything. Working together, we can continue to take the steps needed to ensure Chipleys Bright Future. I believe that in order for Chipley to grow, it is necessary for younger individuals to begin to take an active part in our city. Although I do not have any past political experience, I feel that I have many qualities that are essential for being a leader in our community. As a nurse practitioner, I work with a diverse population with differing levels of education, backgrounds and beliefs. I am a compassionate listener. Working together with patients and their family members, I am able to set reasonable and obtainable goals with them. As a health care provider, I must consider all aspects of a problem before making a nal decision. Seeing the bigger picture instead of what is in plain sight is necessary for success. I have not served in the military. The economic future of our city is a big concern. Budgets and nances are going to get tight, and I feel this is going to be one of the biggest challenges faced by our city council. Careful examination of resources we already possess, and using them to wisely is a must. Additionally, seeking alternative funding for projects to improve our community through grants is another way in which the needs of our city can be met. As an individual who has been a lifelong resident I am concerned about our city and its future. I will be available to talk the citizens of Chipley. As a mother, I also want to make Chipley a place people want to raise their children.

We look forward to you sharing this special occasion with us. Faith Saturday, August 4, 2012 Have you noticed the back-to-school sales? Theyre everywhere. People across the nation are stocking up on everything from ballpoint pens to backpacks in an attempt to get ready for the coming school year. Additionally, many area charities are trying to take a load off of financially stressed families by giving away school supplies. If you encounter such a program, please consider helping others by donating either school supplies or the money required to purchase them. With the entire community gearing up for a new academic year, one can almost feel the excitement in the air. But even if your school days are long past, its never too late for learning. Its an exhilarating time, even if you havent set foot in a classroom in decades. If youre not going to be enrolled in school this year, thats fine. There are still plenty of classes being offered in the school of life. While school supplies are on sale, it might be a good time to purchase a few blank notebooks. If youre a student, get at least one extra notebook that you wont be using for class. Student or not, theres nothing as wonderful as a fresh, clean notebook. Its a blank slate just waiting to receive your thoughts. What can you write in your new notebook? Anything your heart desires. Every notebook is a potential journey for the mind, heart and soul. You can jot down family history, write ideas for stories and poems, draw pictures, copy inspirational quotes, start a journal, preserve memories of the past for future generations or record passing thoughts. Its your notebook; customize it any way you like. Or perhaps youd prefer loose paper. When I was in my early teens, colored notebook paper was all the rage. It came in light pastel shades of pink, aqua, lavender and other hues. No teacher would permit it to be used in the classroom, but somehow, our little notes to each other seemed so much more important when scrawled onto festively colored paper. We wanted to leave behind the plain, boring white paper officially approved by the school and express ourselves with vividly colorful paper and ink. If a boy received a note from a girl on pink paper, he knew that he was a special being, indeed. He rated highly enough to get a note on the fancy paper, the kind reserved only for close friends. It might be fun to revisit your school days by getting some colorful paper and making a special note or card for a friend or loved one. As for using a notebook as a journal, Ive attended several spiritual courses in which journaling was considered an important activity. To me, as a writer, sometimes ideas dont seem real until I take the dual step of writing them down and then putting them into action. Writing something down tends to give it more of a sense of permanence. Its also a natural memory aid. It sends a message to the brain that these ideas are important. Even random thoughts can start becoming organized when committed to paper. Theres a reason people write out grocery lists rather than going to the store and hoping theyll just magically remember what they went there for. The same is true for the big ideas in life. Writing leads to organization, and organization leads to realization. You can also use a notebook to record your dreams. Some spiritual groups consider dreamwork to be valuable. One aspect of dreamwork involves keeping a journal to capture dreams before they fade from conscious memory. The notebook is kept next to the bed, and dreams are written down before they fade away. Ive tried this, and found it to be quite interesting. Ill occasionally read back over the various dreams Ive written down. I was able to commit them to paper before my waking mind wiped them away. It makes for some intriguing (and occasionally bizarre) reading. Catch those dreams before they fade, and you might learn more about yourself as a person. You may also, as I did, start seeing recurring themes that are worth taking notice of. Many religious people believe that were created in the image of God, who is the ultimate creative force. If God is creative, and we are fashioned in his image, then it stands to reason that we are also creative beings. As humans, we create by using words, images, music, science and art. During the coming school year, children will be given a chance to create with markers, crayons, glue and glitter. But dont forget that adults have a right to be creative, too. Its our natural heritage as human beings. So check out the school supplies. Even if youre not going back to school, see if theres something youd like to pick up. Youre never too old to draw a picture, carry a notebook, or even cut out paper snowflakes. Theres a spiritual connection to creativity, and it can be experienced at any age. Dont forget to send in your religion news. Is your house of worship or spiritual group having an event? Are you hosting a revival, luncheon, special class, musical number or public lecture? If so, let everyone know about it. All faiths are encouraged to send in their news. Send an email to archangel505@ yahoo.com or news@ chipleypaper.com.

Special to the Times-Advertiser WASHINGTON COUNTY The Washington County Health Department is investing a case or cases of rabies in domestic cats. One cat has tested positive for rabies. Dogs and other animals also could have been exposed. The area in question is in northern Washington County, just south of the Jackson County line near State Road 77. The Washington County Health Department reminds all residents to avoid wild or stray animals. One has no way of knowing if the animal is vaccinated or infected with some disease. Dont feed stray or wild animals, and vaccinate your pets. Take these steps to protect yourself and your loved ones against rabies: If you are bitten by an animal, wash the wound thoroughly with soap and water and seek medical attention immediately. Report the bite to your county health department and animal control agency. Keep rabies vaccinations up to date for all pets. Keep your pets under direct supervision, so they do not come in contact with wild animals. If your pet is bitten by a wild animal, seek veterinary assistance for the animal immediately and contact your local county health department, 638-6240 for the Washington County Health Department. Do not handle, feed or unintentionally attract wild animals with open garbage cans, litter or pet food. Never adopt wild animals or bring them into your home. Teach children never to handle unfamiliar animals, wild or domestic, even if they appear friendly. Unusual acting animals should be reported to the Washington County Animal Control at 638-6306. Anyone bitten or scratched by wild or stray animals should report it to their doctor immediately, and notify the animal control agency and the county health department in their area.

Washington County News | A5 Saturday, August 4, 2012 Local Corbin and Joyner have seen pretty much everything imaginable at the county parks, they say, and something has to be done to not only maintain the parks, but to patrol them. Weve had complaints of people be ing intimidated, of people drinking at the parks, which is a violation of the states open container law, Corbin said. Routinely, the countys work crews clean up large amounts of garbage at the parks, some of which is obviously house hold waste, Joyner said. Empty beer bot tles are evident in a photo Joyner shared, taken Monday at the Holmes Creek Cul pepper Landing. Weve seen trash piled up to where you cant see the guard rail, Joyner said. You know, I pay Waste Management to pick up my trash at my house, and if I go to a facility, I take my garbage home with me, Joyner said. I dont leave it at the park for someone else to pick up. As tax revenues shrink, resources available for maintaining the 40 county parks also shrink, resulting in the need for additional revenue to cover expenses. The county spends $7,000 a year on Port-APotties, Joyner said, not to even mention manicuring the lawns, repairing facilities and replacing damaged park property. People will burn a picnic table with out even thinking about it, Corbin said. Thieves also have struck at parks, taking copper wiring from facilities. Each week, the county provides a truck and equipment to a Department of Corrections crew that goes around to the parks for cleaning and maintenance, which saves the county about $200,000 a year in labor. The county also gets about $6,000 a year from the state as their part of funds gath ered from boating registration fees. One complication to charging fees comes from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. According to FWC ofcials, if the county charges fees for a facility with a boat ramp funded by the Florida Boat ing Improvement Program, then those fees can only be used in the maintenance of that ramp, said Chris Paxton, regional sheries administrator for the FWCs northwest region. The fee also would have to be approved by the FWC before it could go into effect. The county has constructed several boat ramps with monies from Florida Boating Improvement Program grants, ac cording to the county website. The grants are administered through the FWC. Cedar Tree Boat Ramp, Jenkins Land ing Boat Ramp and Stewart Lake Boat Ramp are some of the boat ramps either refurbished or constructed through these grants, according to the website. Corbin noted that the FWC would have to approve any fees for parks with grantfunded boat ramps before the county could implement them.

Local A6 | Washington County News Saturday, August 4, 2012 to meet Watson, who owns and operates AJN Kennel. Duncan and the pup immediately bonded, which was evident to Watson when he arrived. But this is Duncans story, so let her tell it. As babies, (Sarah) let me see them, and when Joe came to see the one he was going to get, Sarah gave him to me and he was loving on me, Duncan said. When I handed him to Joe, he was still paying attention to me, and then he was licking and loving me again. Joe said, I guess I have a partner. It just happened. Duncan is an Ohio native who has spent much of her adult life in the Panhandle. Now in her 40s, she lives with her husband, Cecil, on 10 acres outside of Fountain. A self-professed animal person, Duncan has worked at the track for six years. Though she doesnt have human children, she has an extended family of seven greyhounds in her care in addition to horses and a miniature schnauzer, among others. But there was something else missing. I had adopted (greyhounds) and they are great, but I wanted to have a baby greyhound, Teresa said. I had to do it. AJN Sweet Smoke has been performing like a prodigy in the 2012 live greyhound racing meeting at the Washington County pari-mutuel facility. It has been a short journey thus far for the rst-time owner, as well as Watson, who this year has branched out to full ownership of a kennel. In addition to AJN Sweet Smoke, who only began racing in May, trainer Thomas Suggs is in his rst year of handling that responsibility. The initial results have been highly positive with Sweet Smoke breaking his maiden at Ebro, or winning for the rst time, and continuing to perform at a high level while advancing through grades to compete with the best dogs at the track. Duncan initially took the latest addition of her family to Fountain to live. Stocky Hess, president of Ebro Greyhound Park and a veteran of many aspects of the greyhound racing industry for parts of six decades, told Duncan some champion dogs had been hand-raised by owners and not sent immediately to a farm. Stocky has taught me a lot, Duncan said. He talks to me about when he used to run dogs. He can tell you this and that. His experience. Training. Hes done it all. AJN Sweet Smoke would roam the property with the schnauzer. He was kennel trained, but he did pretty much what he wanted to do, Duncan said. That included getting a lot of sleep. In the king-sized bed. When he was a year old, I knew from the get-go he would have to leave me and go to a trainer, Duncan said. Sarah talked about sending all three to Oklahoma, but it was November, it was cold and the ground was hard, and I didnt want him to cut his feet. Joe sends a lot of his dogs to Fort White between Lake City and Gainesville. He was down there almost six months; I didnt get him back until April. Joe was there a lot, and he knew he was well taken care of. Joe has a kennel in Sarasota, and he was getting ready to close (for that meet) and took him to Sarasota, not for racing, but to get him used to kennel life, and he would work him a little bit. Previously Duncan had taken care of Sweet Smokes registration with the National Greyhound Association. He got his ID tattoo numbers in his ears at 3 months. She received an onion skin document with the dogs markings on it and ID numbers, and later his of cial papers of ownership. Then there was no small matter of naming her boy, as Duncan commonly refers to her greyhound. Duncan explained that only 16 letters can be used, and that Watsons greyhounds all have the AJN moniker. We put AJN Smoke, and I wanted Sweet because hes so sweet, Duncan said. And then he smokes them on the track. Im a NASCAR fan, and Tony Stewarts nickname is Smoke and he owned the track in Ohio where my grandfather use to race in the s and s. He bought it and kept the memories going. A more sobering aspect of her greyhounds identi cation markings came when Duncan explained why she had Sweet Smoke micro chipped. It serves as a psychological safeguard for her emotional attachment. She was one of the rst on the scene that day in late October 2010 when the appalling realization of what had occurred in one of the kennels on the compound was discovered some weeks after the racing season had concluded. Thirty-four greyhounds, some of them with their muzzles bound by duct tape, had been methodically starved to death. The man responsible, Ronnie Williams, was sentenced to ve years in prison for his crime, but Ebro Greyhound Park likely will be viewed by some into the future as his accomplice. I was the one that was down there. I was the one that realized the duct tape, Duncan said. That still haunts me. It was the most horrible day ever. I can still remember the clothes I had on. It is one of the worst things Ive ever experienced in my life. It will always be a part of me. If you can do that to an animal, what else can you do? Because of her of ce duties, Duncan was the person charged with elding queries from greyhound owners wondering if their animals were among those victimized. Many of the dogs bodies had decomposed to the extent they couldnt be identi ed by their ear markings. I was the one answering the phone, and I couldnt tell them, Duncan said. I never want to be in a situation those people were in. Duncans position at Ebro also offers many perks. Not in the least is her friendship with Watson, and con dence that Sweet Smoke is receiving proper care and handling. In addition to the advice from Hess, presiding judge Lamar Page has been helpful. He put me on the racing roster so I can see him when I want, Duncan said. He tells me little tips, tells me he looks good. He makes it exciting for me. Hes been very encouraging with his potential and how this works. Greyhound owners are paid a percentage of their dogs earnings through an agreement with the kennel owner. Usually that is a somewhat standard 35 percent, and 50 percent for stakes races. It can vary, as some kennel owners only pay for results in Grades A and B, but Watson rewards all grades. The amount depends on whether the dogs places rst, second or third, and points are rewarded depending on the grade or race which can be maiden, J, D, C, B or A depending on the past performance of the greyhound. The prize money pool is affected by the handle (amount wagered) bet on the entire live racing performance as well as the tracks simulcast handle, and the take from Ebros Poker Room also gures into the mix. Various parimutuel facilities in Florida and other states also offer slot machines on premises, which equates to a higher take and more lucrative payoffs for both the kennel and the greyhound owner. There is no fee for owners to enter races. Ebro racing secretary Bill Nelson determines the daily performance schedule, most greyhounds racing every fourth day. Otherwise theyre housed in an air-conditioned kennel at the track where there sometimes is a television or radio to provide background noise. The dogs are turned out into an outside pen every ve or six hours and at times are taken to a sprint path for exercise. Duncan is getting familiar with the racing routine for AJN Sweet Smoke. I know he loves doing this, she said. Theres no way you can make one run. Some just decide that this isnt for them. The ones that want to run, youve got to let them run. You can see it in their eyes. If you werent into it, you would know. Like when he was sick, or if theyre hurt. The relationship I have with Joe, if I really wanted to create an issue I would call the racing secretary. As an owner you have the right to pull your dog. Ebro Greyhound Park is known throughout the circuit as a Puppy Track, or venue where promising greyhounds break in before chasing larger purses often offered at downstate or out-of-state tracks. Duncan knows that like a highly recruited prep athlete going off to college in another part of the country, that time could come for AJN Sweet Smoke. Its gonna kill me if we send him out of state, she said. Hes like a real child, and you want to be there supporting them. Im anxious for the day he comes back to the house. I dont want him to get hurt for that to happen, but no ifs ands or buts, whatever it takes to x him were going to do. Euthanization is not an option. Part II: Joe Watson of AJN Kennel branches out on his own in his eighth year in the business.

Supports healthy lifestyle, workforce On Aug. 11 at the Northwest Florida Community Hospital Back 2 School Fair, the Washington County Chamber of Commerce, the NFCH and the Washington County Health Department will introduce the WE CAN! program to the parents and children of Washington County. WE CAN! Stands for Ways to Enhance Childrens Activity & Nutrition. It is a nationally recognized program that seeks to oer sustainable lifestyle changes to aid in the prevention of obesity and the development of signicant health issues in children as they mature into adults. e Chamber and the Hospital have partnered with several local businesses to educate parents and children on healthy, nutritional eating and behavior. According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, In the past 30 years, the prevalence of childhood obesity has more than doubled among children ages two to ve, has tripled among youth ages six to 11, and has more than tripled doubled. Many attribute this to an increasingly sedentary lifestyle, as well as poor nutritional habits. Often diet, exercise and lifestyle changes can help children manage Type 2 Diabetes or prevent it from developing, but sometimes medications may be needed as well, Ross writes. e Chamber and the Hospital as well as the partners in this program desire to reduce this trend in Washington County. Not only is this issue a potentially great health risk to our children, it is also a future workforce issue. As health insurance costs continue to climb, employors will not want to hire people that will most likely have these type of issues as it will only increase their insurance costs. Also, having Type 2 Diabetes can also lead to signicant amounts of time that an employee is unable to work thus lowering productivity for that business. e WE CAN! program will introduce dierent ways of lowering Ted Everett Executive Director among adolescents ages 12 to 19. is is a staggering statistic and if not changed, studies show that obese children are likely to begin suering from Type 2 Diabetes beginning in their late 20s to early 30s. People who have Type 2 Diabetes either do not produce enough insulin or do not use insulin eectively. Insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, helps glucose (sugar) move from the bloodstream to the cells, where it is used as an energy source. according to diabetes writer Heather Ross on AboutHealth.com. If sugar does not get into the cells, they lack the fuel needed for the body to function. Over time, excess sugar in the blood can damage the bodys organs, writes Ross. Reducing insulin resistance combats Type 2 Diabetes by helping the body to better metabolize sugar. One of the main causes of Type 2 Diabetes is obesity, which contributes to both insulin resistance and cardiovascular problems, Ross continues. Since the 1970s, the rate of obesity in children has more than

For most of us in this rural area it can also mean a visit to other regions of the country where you can experience the faster pace of life. While I truly enjoy a visit to a big city and the excitement of being around the hustle and bustle, I am always glad to come home to our slower pace of life. We have a tendency to take for granted the advantages we have in our area. Recent illness in my family has really brought this home for me. e people in our area are some of the most caring individuals in the world. Our friends are the kind of people that will go that extra mile without even being asked. Our closet is full of shirts o the backs of our friends, as the old saying indicates. As our nation struggles with the dicult decisions of the day, I am more and more thankful for the community I am blessed to have grown up in. e discourse our nation is experiencing is tempered somewhat by our tight knit community. We all are truly blessed to live in this place and in this nation. Your Chamber is working diligently to keep this way of life, while also trying to improve the economic opportunities available to our community. Many would be surprised by the business leads coming into the Chamber. Most of the leads are not well-suited for our small community, with the requirements far beyond what is Philip Pippin Your Washington County Chamber recently partnered with the Washington County Emergency Operations Center to host a Disaster Preparedness Expo at the Agricultural Center. e program included presentations from local broadcast meteo rologists Chris Smith, WJGH, and Elissia Wilson, WMBB. Additionally, Woody Bollinger of the Central Panahandle American Red Cross provided valuable information, as did Ron Sharpe with United Way of Northwest Florida.

Ask them if they Believe in Washington County like the Chamber president, board of directors and members do. I talked about how businesses should be prepared for a natural disaster by making sure all computer les are backed up with a CD or Flash Drive and then stored in a very safe and secure area. Its especially important for business owners to have a rallying point -a place to meet your employees -after a disaster has passed. Most telephones may not be operating due to loss of power or cell tower damage; therefore, it is important to have a predetermined spot to meet employees and determine when everyone will be back to work. It is essential to get the damaged busi nesses up and running as quickly as pos sible in order to be able to put dollars back into the local economy. Being prepared requires many steps; most people do not think of it until the storm is close, and by Ted Everett that time it is usually too late to locate and acquire the supplies needed. e Washington County Chamber has available DVDs that contain all informa tion presented at the Expo, plus much, much more that you and your business need to know in order to survive and recover from a natural disaster. Feel free to come by and pick one up.

August-September 2012 Washington County Business Advocate Page Five To the citizens and residents of Northwest Florida: I want to share an expression of thankfulness for the honor and opportunity to serve you in the Florida House of Representa tives for the past 4 years. It was truly a delicate task during tough, tough economic times, yet fullling an obligation and oppor tunity to make reductions in regulatory aairs, bureaucracy in government and the size and scope of governments involvement in our very lives. We focused rst and foremost on facing the scal challenges posed by multi-billion dollar budget shortfalls. We met those challenges by passing responsible, balanced budgets and passing legislation designed to help recharge Floridas economy and get Floridians back to work. Nationally and across the globe, the world is experiencing unprecedented nancial uncertainty. With unsteady economies, states are relying on the federal government for their very exis tence, and our federal government continues to crawl deeper and deeper into inescapable debt. Unfortunately, these challenging times have not overlooked the Sunshine State. In Florida, during the 2011 Legislative Session we faced signicant challenges due to a $4.6 billion budget shortage. We made these dicult choices knowing that the road before us would not be quick or painless, but that the nancial security of future generations of Floridians depended on the decisions we made. We have led boldly while many states and nations have been unwilling to make the tough choices today to ensure a brighter tomorrow. Our eorts were not in vain. e budget and policy choices we made last session provided the catalyst for upgrading Florida to a stable AAA bond rating, resulting in lower interest rates, and potentially saving our taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars. However, there is still much work to do. I look forward to working with and for you, and encourage everyone to maintain positive interaction with our local, state and Federal leaders in rebuilding a stronger and better Northwest Florida! Sincerely, I am Florida State Representative Brad Drake, 5th Dist.

And how can the county maintain the parks in a safe, sanitary fashion without resources? Those are questions County Administrator Steve Joyner and Public Services Director David Corbin have been asking, and now they are working with County Attorney Jeff Goodman to try and devise an ordinance establishing a recreation fee for county residents. At the July 19 Board of County Commissioners meeting, the discussion centered around the use of boat ramps and camping facilities. But the problems with the parks are wide-ranging. What I want to get out to people is that we arent just wanting to charge fees just for the sake of charging fees, Joyner said. Id like the county to have a better understanding of our motives. Safety is a prime motive Joyner and Corbin both cited, listing a number of instances at county parks that illustrate the need for some sort of oversight. We would like to use this revenue to hire a park ranger, someone who can go around and keep an eye on the parks, Joyner said. The parks have become ad hoc garbage dumps, meth cooking sites and even a garage in one instance. We had one person hook up a hoist under the pavilion and used it to change out a motor, Corbin said. He used the park like a shop. The work crews also have found the remnants of shake and bake meth labs in the trash at the parks, which necessitates having the sheriffs of ce come out for disposal.

I will maintain availability, serve and attend council meetings and actively participate in city council matters. I will value and respect the views and worthiness of each citizen and establish innovative ways to make new ides work for the betterment of our citizens now and in the future. I am a graduate of Roulhac High School and the Washington-Holmes Technical Center with a certi cate in commercial printing/ advanced apprenticeship level.

I operated and owned a 200man company in Florida and was president of one of the largest IBEWs in Florida and on the executive board and negotiation committee. I was previously in the Army Airborne Infantry and am a Vietnam veteran. We have got to stop the taxes from being driven higher in Chipley.

HODGES JR.Chipley | City Council. Ward 1Hodges was called out of town on business and could not return his answers to the of ce before press time. I wanted to do my part in working in the community to help the city of Chipley to grow and prosper. I was elected to the city council in 2002. I am a local business owner. My husband and I own Rustin Vault & Monument. I handle all aspects in running the of ce, which consists of customer service, business management and accounting. I have 10 years of experience in working for the city. During this time, I have taken several classes for training with the Florida League of Cities. I feel I can make educated and skilled decisions for the city. Before I was elected into of ce, I served as an ambassador for the Washington County Chamber of Commerce and also on the membership committee. Also, I have served on the Glenwood City Cemetery Committee and the Chipley Planning and Zoning Committee. No, I have never served in the Armed Forces. But I am so thankful to the men and women that have fought for our country, past and present. People need to realize that freedom does not come free. They put their life on the line every day so we can live in a safe world. With the economy the way it is, balancing the budget is going to be a huge challenge. It will be hard to fund all aspects of the city without cutting services or having to lay employees off. I promise to work hard to use every tax dollar wisely and frugal, so the city can continue to run smoothly. I also will strive to bring economic development to the downtown area. I will also continue to work with DOT (the Department of Transportation) for sidewalks on Highway 77 for the elderly and disabled. I have also been working closely with the city police department to crack down on speeders using our side roads for a cut-thru. People need to feel safe in their neighborhoods. I grew up on a farm so I know the meaning of hard work. I am a devoted wife and mother and also a breast cancer survivor, so I know how important each day is. If re-elected, I promise to continue to do my very best for each and every citizen of Chipley. I will continue to be available to listen to the concerns of all citizens. I promise to work with the other members of the council to do what is in the best interest of the entire city. I will also continue to support all of our wonderful employees, so they can work in an environment without being intimated or harassed. I would just like to thank the citizens of Chipley for letting me serve them. I hope you will continue to give me your vote and support on Aug. 7.

Approved by Karen Kinser Rustin I am Linda Cain, a candidate for re-election to the Chipley City Council, Ward Four. I live at 706 Third St., Chipley. I am pleased to offer this response to questions submitted by the managing editor of the Washington County News. Two responses requested were party af liation and veterans status. Although the city council election is nonpartisan, I will state I am a registered Democrat who votes my convictions, not party af liation. I am not a veteran, but am proud and supportive of every veteran who has served our country. In 1988, I ran for this council position hoping to be an active voice for all the citizens and employees of the city. I was given the opportunity to begin my service on the council 24 years ago. I attended the seminar for elected of cials at Chipola College and the Advanced Elected Of cial class held in Panama City. The Northwest Florida League of Cities and the Florida League of Cities assist the city in answering questions, making contacts and obtaining funding for all aspects of city operation. I am proud to be a member of both and attend meetings as often as possible when the budget permits. Many needed projects could not be completed without grant money. The council and management have been able to receive funding through grants for such projects as needed upgrades to the wastewater treatment facilities; purchase of the Northwest Florida Campgrounds to expand the Pals Park complex; the renovation of the old city hall, ensuring this historic building will continue to be a vital part of our community; the construction of a 400,000 gallon water storage tank at the old Roulhac Middle School; and beauti cation of all four entrances into Chipley. For any future projects, my goal is to ensure money spent will clearly show the investments were necessary and bene cial to all citizens. We are living in a time where every penny has to be spent wisely, while continuing to provide services each citizen expects from the city. Monies are not owing as freely from the state and federal governments. This will probably continue for the next few years. As your representative on the council, I will pledge to do all I can to ensure the vital functions of the city continue without interruption. I could not make this pledge without the work our city employees do every day. They play a vital role in our success. I want to make sure they are able to continue their work in an atmosphere of cooperation, not intimidation. I have always had a concern for people, no matter their status. I have strived to listen and respond to your needs and concerns. I will continue to do this to the best of my ability. You will always have access to me to discuss any city or personal issues. I will continue to respond with promptness and professionalism to all complaints received. I feel I have gained the experience needed to provide positive input in all aspects of Chipleys growth and management. I have served on a council that has worked in unity with the city management and employees to make the decisions required to ensure smooth operation of every aspect of city life. I have enjoyed serving you on the council. Remember, without the assistance and support of the citizens and the city employees, the council would not be able to accomplish anything. Working together, we can continue to take the steps needed to ensure Chipleys Bright Future. I believe that in order for Chipley to grow, it is necessary for younger individuals to begin to take an active part in our city. Although I do not have any past political experience, I feel that I have many qualities that are essential for being a leader in our community. As a nurse practitioner, I work with a diverse population with differing levels of education, backgrounds and beliefs. I am a compassionate listener. Working together with patients and their family members, I am able to set reasonable and obtainable goals with them. As a health care provider, I must consider all aspects of a problem before making a nal decision. Seeing the bigger picture instead of what is in plain sight is necessary for success. I have not served in the military. The economic future of our city is a big concern. Budgets and nances are going to get tight, and I feel this is going to be one of the biggest challenges faced by our city council. Careful examination of resources we already possess, and using them to wisely is a must. Additionally, seeking alternative funding for projects to improve our community through grants is another way in which the needs of our city can be met. As an individual who has been a lifelong resident I am concerned about our city and its future. I will be available to talk the citizens of Chipley. As a mother, I also want to make Chipley a place people want to raise their children.CITY COUNCIL WARD 4LINDA CAINChipley | City Council, Ward 4 Incumbent LINDA CAINTOBY MURRAYChipley | City Council Ward 4 TOBY MURRAY Election 2012 Precinct 1 (Caryville): Caryville Town Hall, 4436 Old Spanish Trail, Caryville, FL 32427 Precinct 2 (Five Points): Five Points Community Center, 3892 Desalva Road, Caryville, FL 32427 Precinct 3 (Hinson Crossroads): Hinson Crossroads Fire Station, 5487 Douglas Ferry Road, Caryville, FL 32427 Precinct 4 (Agricultural Center): Washington County Agricultural Center, 1424 Jackson Ave., Chipley, FL 32428 Precinct 5 (Vernon City Hall): Vernon City Hall Old VHS Cafeteria, 2808 Yellow Jacket Drive, Vernon, FL 32462 Precinct 6 (New Hope): Gilleys Place, 3351 Mallory Road, Vernon, FL 32462 Precinct 7 (Orange Hill): Orange Hill Fire Station, 1927 Orange Hill Road, Chipley, FL 32428 Precinct 8 (Armory): US National Guard Armory, 749 Seventh St., Chipley, FL 32428 Precinct 9 (Wausau): 1607 Second Ave., Chipley, FL 32428 Precinct 10 (Courts of Praise Church): Courts of Praise Church, 1720 Clayton Road, Chipley, FL 32428 Precinct 11 (Ebro): Ebro City Hall, 629 Dog Track Road, Ebro, FL 32437 Precinct 12 (Greenhead): New Vision Methodist Church, 2661 Blocker Church Road, Chipley, FL 32428 Precinct 15 (Sunny Hills): Sunny Hills Community Center/Library, 4083 Challenger Blvd., Chipley, FL 32428 Precinct 17 (Shepherds Gate Church): Shepherds Gate Church, 1915 Ferguson Road, Chipley, FL 32428 Precinct 18 (Recycling Center): Washington County Recycling Center, 3115 State Road 77, Chipley, FL 32428 Precinct 19 (Buckhorn Creek): Country Oaks Baptist Church, 574 Buckhorn Blvd., Chipley, FL 32428 EARLY VOTINGEarly voting for the 2012 Primary Election begins today, Aug. 4, from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Washington County Supervisor of Elections of ce.

People across the nation are stocking up on everything from ballpoint pens to backpacks in an attempt to get ready for the coming school year. Additionally, many area charities are trying to take a load off of financially stressed families by giving away school supplies. If you encounter such a program, please consider helping others by donating either school supplies or the money required to purchase them. With the entire community gearing up for a new academic year, one can almost feel the excitement in the air. But even if your school days are long past, its never too late for learning. Its an exhilarating time, even if you havent set foot in a classroom in decades. If youre not going to be enrolled in school this year, thats fine. There are still plenty of classes being offered in the school of life. While school supplies are on sale, it might be a good time to purchase a few blank notebooks. If youre a student, get at least one extra notebook that you wont be using for class. Student or not, theres nothing as wonderful as a fresh, clean notebook. Its a blank slate just waiting to receive your thoughts. What can you write in your new notebook? Anything your heart desires. Every notebook is a potential journey for the mind, heart and soul. You can jot down family history, write ideas for stories and poems, draw pictures, copy inspirational quotes, start a journal, preserve memories of the past for future generations or record passing thoughts. Its your notebook; customize it any way you like. Or perhaps youd prefer loose paper. When I was in my early teens, colored notebook paper was all the rage. It came in light pastel shades of pink, aqua, lavender and other hues. No teacher would permit it to be used in the classroom, but somehow, our little notes to each other seemed so much more important when scrawled onto festively colored paper. We wanted to leave behind the plain, boring white paper officially approved by the school and express ourselves with vividly colorful paper and ink. If a boy received a note from a girl on pink paper, he knew that he was a special being, indeed. He rated highly enough to get a note on the fancy paper, the kind reserved only for close friends. It might be fun to revisit your school days by getting some colorful paper and making a special note or card for a friend or loved one. As for using a notebook as a journal, Ive attended several spiritual courses in which journaling was considered an important activity. To me, as a writer, sometimes ideas dont seem real until I take the dual step of writing them down and then putting them into action. Writing something down tends to give it more of a sense of permanence. Its also a natural memory aid. It sends a message to the brain that these ideas are important. Even random thoughts can start becoming organized when committed to paper. Theres a reason people write out grocery lists rather than going to the store and hoping theyll just magically remember what they went there for. The same is true for the big ideas in life. Writing leads to organization, and organization leads to realization. You can also use a notebook to record your dreams. Some spiritual groups consider dreamwork to be valuable. One aspect of dreamwork involves keeping a journal to capture dreams before they fade from conscious memory. The notebook is kept next to the bed, and dreams are written down before they fade away. Ive tried this, and found it to be quite interesting. Ill occasionally read back over the various dreams Ive written down. I was able to commit them to paper before my waking mind wiped them away. It makes for some intriguing (and occasionally bizarre) reading. Catch those dreams before they fade, and you might learn more about yourself as a person. You may also, as I did, start seeing recurring themes that are worth taking notice of. Many religious people believe that were created in the image of God, who is the ultimate creative force. If God is creative, and we are fashioned in his image, then it stands to reason that we are also creative beings. As humans, we create by using words, images, music, science and art. During the coming school year, children will be given a chance to create with markers, crayons, glue and glitter. But dont forget that adults have a right to be creative, too. Its our natural heritage as human beings. So check out the school supplies. Even if youre not going back to school, see if theres something youd like to pick up. Youre never too old to draw a picture, carry a notebook, or even cut out paper snowflakes. Theres a spiritual connection to creativity, and it can be experienced at any age. Dont forget to send in your religion news. Is your house of worship or spiritual group having an event? Are you hosting a revival, luncheon, special class, musical number or public lecture? If so, let everyone know about it. All faiths are encouraged to send in their news. Send an email to archangel505@ yahoo.com or news@ chipleypaper.com.

One cat has tested positive for rabies. Dogs and other animals also could have been exposed. The area in question is in northern Washington County, just south of the Jackson County line near State Road 77. The Washington County Health Department reminds all residents to avoid wild or stray animals. One has no way of knowing if the animal is vaccinated or infected with some disease. Dont feed stray or wild animals, and vaccinate your pets. Take these steps to protect yourself and your loved ones against rabies: If you are bitten by an animal, wash the wound thoroughly with soap and water and seek medical attention immediately. Report the bite to your county health department and animal control agency. Keep rabies vaccinations up to date for all pets. Keep your pets under direct supervision, so they do not come in contact with wild animals. If your pet is bitten by a wild animal, seek veterinary assistance for the animal immediately and contact your local county health department, 638-6240 for the Washington County Health Department. Do not handle, feed or unintentionally attract wild animals with open garbage cans, litter or pet food. Never adopt wild animals or bring them into your home. Teach children never to handle unfamiliar animals, wild or domestic, even if they appear friendly. Unusual acting animals should be reported to the Washington County Animal Control at 638-6306.

Washington County News | A5Saturday, August 4, 2012 LocalCorbin and Joyner have seen pretty much everything imaginable at the county parks, they say, and something has to be done to not only maintain the parks, but to patrol them. Weve had complaints of people being intimidated, of people drinking at the parks, which is a violation of the states open container law, Corbin said. Routinely, the countys work crews clean up large amounts of garbage at the parks, some of which is obviously household waste, Joyner said. Empty beer bottles are evident in a photo Joyner shared, taken Monday at the Holmes Creek Culpepper Landing. Weve seen trash piled up to where you cant see the guard rail, Joyner said. You know, I pay Waste Management to pick up my trash at my house, and if I go to a facility, I take my garbage home with me, Joyner said. I dont leave it at the park for someone else to pick up. As tax revenues shrink, resources available for maintaining the 40 county parks also shrink, resulting in the need for additional revenue to cover expenses. The county spends $7,000 a year on Port-APotties, Joyner said, not to even mention manicuring the lawns, repairing facilities and replacing damaged park property. People will burn a picnic table without even thinking about it, Corbin said. Thieves also have struck at parks, taking copper wiring from facilities. Each week, the county provides a truck and equipment to a Department of Corrections crew that goes around to the parks for cleaning and maintenance, which saves the county about $200,000 a year in labor. The county also gets about $6,000 a year from the state as their part of funds gathered from boating registration fees. One complication to charging fees comes from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. According to FWC ofcials, if the county charges fees for a facility with a boat ramp funded by the Florida Boating Improvement Program, then those fees can only be used in the maintenance of that ramp, said Chris Paxton, regional sheries administrator for the FWCs northwest region. The fee also would have to be approved by the FWC before it could go into effect. The county has constructed several boat ramps with monies from Florida Boating Improvement Program grants, according to the county website. The grants are administered through the FWC. Cedar Tree Boat Ramp, Jenkins Landing Boat Ramp and Stewart Lake Boat Ramp are some of the boat ramps either refurbished or constructed through these grants, according to the website. Corbin noted that the FWC would have to approve any fees for parks with grantfunded boat ramps before the county could implement them.

LocalA6 | Washington County News Saturday, August 4, 2012to meet Watson, who owns and operates AJN Kennel. Duncan and the pup immediately bonded, which was evident to Watson when he arrived. But this is Duncans story, so let her tell it. As babies, (Sarah) let me see them, and when Joe came to see the one he was going to get, Sarah gave him to me and he was loving on me, Duncan said. When I handed him to Joe, he was still paying attention to me, and then he was licking and loving me again. Joe said, I guess I have a partner. It just happened. Duncan is an Ohio native who has spent much of her adult life in the Panhandle. Now in her 40s, she lives with her husband, Cecil, on 10 acres outside of Fountain. A self-professed animal person, Duncan has worked at the track for six years. Though she doesnt have human children, she has an extended family of seven greyhounds in her care in addition to horses and a miniature schnauzer, among others. But there was something else missing. I had adopted (greyhounds) and they are great, but I wanted to have a baby greyhound, Teresa said. I had to do it. AJN Sweet Smoke has been performing like a prodigy in the 2012 live greyhound racing meeting at the Washington County pari-mutuel facility. It has been a short journey thus far for the rst-time owner, as well as Watson, who this year has branched out to full ownership of a kennel. In addition to AJN Sweet Smoke, who only began racing in May, trainer Thomas Suggs is in his rst year of handling that responsibility. The initial results have been highly positive with Sweet Smoke breaking his maiden at Ebro, or winning for the rst time, and continuing to perform at a high level while advancing through grades to compete with the best dogs at the track. Duncan initially took the latest addition of her family to Fountain to live. Stocky Hess, president of Ebro Greyhound Park and a veteran of many aspects of the greyhound racing industry for parts of six decades, told Duncan some champion dogs had been hand-raised by owners and not sent immediately to a farm. Stocky has taught me a lot, Duncan said. He talks to me about when he used to run dogs. He can tell you this and that. His experience. Training. Hes done it all. AJN Sweet Smoke would roam the property with the schnauzer. He was kennel trained, but he did pretty much what he wanted to do, Duncan said. That included getting a lot of sleep. In the king-sized bed. When he was a year old, I knew from the get-go he would have to leave me and go to a trainer, Duncan said. Sarah talked about sending all three to Oklahoma, but it was November, it was cold and the ground was hard, and I didnt want him to cut his feet. Joe sends a lot of his dogs to Fort White between Lake City and Gainesville. He was down there almost six months; I didnt get him back until April. Joe was there a lot, and he knew he was well taken care of. Joe has a kennel in Sarasota, and he was getting ready to close (for that meet) and took him to Sarasota, not for racing, but to get him used to kennel life, and he would work him a little bit. Previously Duncan had taken care of Sweet Smokes registration with the National Greyhound Association. He got his ID tattoo numbers in his ears at 3 months. She received an onion skin document with the dogs markings on it and ID numbers, and later his of cial papers of ownership. Then there was no small matter of naming her boy, as Duncan commonly refers to her greyhound. Duncan explained that only 16 letters can be used, and that Watsons greyhounds all have the AJN moniker. We put AJN Smoke, and I wanted Sweet because hes so sweet, Duncan said. And then he smokes them on the track. Im a NASCAR fan, and Tony Stewarts nickname is Smoke and he owned the track in Ohio where my grandfather use to race in the s and s. He bought it and kept the memories going. A more sobering aspect of her greyhounds identi cation markings came when Duncan explained why she had Sweet Smoke micro chipped. It serves as a psychological safeguard for her emotional attachment. She was one of the rst on the scene that day in late October 2010 when the appalling realization of what had occurred in one of the kennels on the compound was discovered some weeks after the racing season had concluded. Thirty-four greyhounds, some of them with their muzzles bound by duct tape, had been methodically starved to death. The man responsible, Ronnie Williams, was sentenced to ve years in prison for his crime, but Ebro Greyhound Park likely will be viewed by some into the future as his accomplice. I was the one that was down there. I was the one that realized the duct tape, Duncan said. That still haunts me. It was the most horrible day ever. I can still remember the clothes I had on. It is one of the worst things Ive ever experienced in my life. It will always be a part of me. If you can do that to an animal, what else can you do? Because of her of ce duties, Duncan was the person charged with elding queries from greyhound owners wondering if their animals were among those victimized. Many of the dogs bodies had decomposed to the extent they couldnt be identi ed by their ear markings. I was the one answering the phone, and I couldnt tell them, Duncan said. I never want to be in a situation those people were in. Duncans position at Ebro also offers many perks. Not in the least is her friendship with Watson, and con dence that Sweet Smoke is receiving proper care and handling. In addition to the advice from Hess, presiding judge Lamar Page has been helpful. He put me on the racing roster so I can see him when I want, Duncan said. He tells me little tips, tells me he looks good. He makes it exciting for me. Hes been very encouraging with his potential and how this works. Greyhound owners are paid a percentage of their dogs earnings through an agreement with the kennel owner. Usually that is a somewhat standard 35 percent, and 50 percent for stakes races. It can vary, as some kennel owners only pay for results in Grades A and B, but Watson rewards all grades. The amount depends on whether the dogs places rst, second or third, and points are rewarded depending on the grade or race which can be maiden, J, D, C, B or A depending on the past performance of the greyhound. The prize money pool is affected by the handle (amount wagered) bet on the entire live racing performance as well as the tracks simulcast handle, and the take from Ebros Poker Room also gures into the mix. Various parimutuel facilities in Florida and other states also offer slot machines on premises, which equates to a higher take and more lucrative payoffs for both the kennel and the greyhound owner. There is no fee for owners to enter races. Ebro racing secretary Bill Nelson determines the daily performance schedule, most greyhounds racing every fourth day. Otherwise theyre housed in an air-conditioned kennel at the track where there sometimes is a television or radio to provide background noise. The dogs are turned out into an outside pen every ve or six hours and at times are taken to a sprint path for exercise. Duncan is getting familiar with the racing routine for AJN Sweet Smoke. I know he loves doing this, she said. Theres no way you can make one run. Some just decide that this isnt for them. The ones that want to run, youve got to let them run. You can see it in their eyes.

Supports healthy lifestyle, workforceOn Aug. 11 at the Northwest Florida Community Hospital Back 2 School Fair, the Washington County Chamber of Commerce, the NFCH and the Washington County Health Department will introduce the WE CAN! program to the parents and children of Washington County. WE CAN! Stands for Ways to Enhance Childrens Activity & Nutrition. It is a nationally recognized program that seeks to oer sustainable lifestyle changes to aid in the prevention of obesity and the development of signicant health issues in children as they mature into adults. e Chamber and the Hospital have partnered with several local businesses to educate parents and children on healthy, nutritional eating and behavior. According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, In the past 30 years, the prevalence of childhood obesity has more than doubled among children ages two to ve, has tripled among youth ages six to 11, and has more than tripled doubled. Many attribute this to an increasingly sedentary lifestyle, as well as poor nutritional habits. Often diet, exercise and lifestyle changes can help children manage Type 2 Diabetes or prevent it from developing, but sometimes medications may be needed as well, Ross writes. e Chamber and the Hospital as well as the partners in this program desire to reduce this trend in Washington County. Not only is this issue a potentially great health risk to our children, it is also a future workforce issue. As health insurance costs continue to climb, employors will not want to hire people that will most likely have these type of issues as it will only increase their insurance costs. Also, having Type 2 Diabetes can also lead to signicant amounts of time that an employee is unable to work thus lowering productivity for that business. e WE CAN! program will introduce dierent ways of lowering Ted Everett Executive Director among adolescents ages 12 to 19. is is a staggering statistic and if not changed, studies show that obese children are likely to begin suering from Type 2 Diabetes beginning in their late 20s to early 30s. People who have Type 2 Diabetes either do not produce enough insulin or do not use insulin eectively. Insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, helps glucose (sugar) move from the bloodstream to the cells, where it is used as an energy source. according to diabetes writer Heather Ross on AboutHealth.com. If sugar does not get into the cells, they lack the fuel needed for the body to function. Over time, excess sugar in the blood can damage the bodys organs, writes Ross. Reducing insulin resistance combats Type 2 Diabetes by helping the body to better metabolize sugar. One of the main causes of Type 2 Diabetes is obesity, which contributes to both insulin resistance and cardiovascular problems, Ross continues. Since the 1970s, the rate of obesity in children has more than

Ask them if they Believe in Washington County like the Chamber president, board of directors and members do.I talked about how businesses should be prepared for a natural disaster by making sure all computer les are backed up with a CD or Flash Drive and then stored in a very safe and secure area. Its especially important for business owners to have a rallying point -a place to meet your employees -after a disaster has passed. Most telephones may not be operating due to loss of power or cell tower damage; therefore, it is important to have a predetermined spot to meet employees and determine when everyone will be back to work. It is essential to get the damaged businesses up and running as quickly as possible in order to be able to put dollars back into the local economy. Being prepared requires many steps; most people do not think of it until the storm is close, and by Ted Everett that time it is usually too late to locate and acquire the supplies needed. e Washington County Chamber has available DVDs that contain all information presented at the Expo, plus much, much more that you and your business need to know in order to survive and recover from a natural disaster.

August-September 2012 Washington County Business Advocate Page Five To the citizens and residents of Northwest Florida: I want to share an expression of thankfulness for the honor and opportunity to serve you in the Florida House of Representatives for the past 4 years. It was truly a delicate task during tough, tough economic times, yet fullling an obligation and opportunity to make reductions in regulatory aairs, bureaucracy in government and the size and scope of governments involvement in our very lives. We focused rst and foremost on facing the scal challenges posed by multi-billion dollar budget shortfalls. We met those challenges by passing responsible, balanced budgets and passing legislation designed to help recharge Floridas economy and get Floridians back to work. Nationally and across the globe, the world is experiencing unprecedented nancial uncertainty. With unsteady economies, states are relying on the federal government for their very existence, and our federal government continues to crawl deeper and deeper into inescapable debt. Unfortunately, these challenging times have not overlooked the Sunshine State. In Florida, during the 2011 Legislative Session we faced signicant challenges due to a $4.6 billion budget shortage. We made these dicult choices knowing that the road before us would not be quick or painless, but that the nancial security of future generations of Floridians depended on the decisions we made. We have led boldly while many states and nations have been unwilling to make the tough choices today to ensure a brighter tomorrow. Our eorts were not in vain. e budget and policy choices we made last session provided the catalyst for upgrading Florida to a stable AAA bond rating, resulting in lower interest rates, and potentially saving our taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars. However, there is still much work to do. I look forward to working with and for you, and encourage everyone to maintain positive interaction with our local, state and Federal leaders in rebuilding a stronger and better Northwest Florida! Sincerely, I am Florida State Representative Brad Drake, 5th Dist.
