The policy establishes criteria for putting speed humps in the city, City Administrator Dan Miner said. The policy sets guidelines and procedures for placing and requesting speed humps. It outlines the procedure for determining when, where and how speed humps will be installed within city limits. The policy exempts collector or arterial roads and streets from control with speed humps, because the main purpose of a collector road is to convey the trafc from nearby residential Council adopts speed hump policy See SPEED A2 By FELICIA KITZMILLER 522-5114 | @PCNHFelicia fkitzmiller@pcnh.com SAND HILLS Bay County is appealing the decision of an administrative law judge who advised against permitting a well eld near the Washington County line. In July, Judge David Maloney stated Bay County failed to provide reasonable assurances natural systems would not be signi cantly affected by their proposed well eld. Bay County is disputing the ruling on several grounds, including an argument Maloney misapplied the burden of proof in making his decision. We took exception to some of his conclusions because we dont believe they are backed up by fact or by testimony, Assistant County Manager Dan Shaw said. Bay County is asking the case be remanded to Maloney for reconsideration, which would require additional hearings.

Local A2 | Washington County News Saturday, September 8, 2012 WELL from page A2 knew about the arrest, but the FBI had not made the information public that the suspect was respon sible for the Chipley rob bery. Someone dropped the ball, or we would have had our news release on this, Crews said. Michael Aaron Al dridge, 39, of Fort Worth, Texas, was arrested May 25 by the Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce for one count of bank robbery. According to the Jack sonville Business Jour nal, Aldridge is suspected in 26 bank robberies 18 in Texas, seven in Florida and one in New Orleans. FBI investigators, along with authorities in Florida and Texas, are continuing to investigate Aldridge for those other bank robberies. According to the Sara sota Patch website, Al dridge robbed a Wells Fargo Bank in St. Johns County on May 1 and an other Wells Fargo on May 11. Shortly after the Wells Fargo surveillance images were released, detectives were contacted by the FBI who said the suspect resembled Aldridge, who was under investigation for multiple bank robber ies in at least three states, according to the Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce. Aldridges wife and a bank teller reportedly identied him as the suspect in the Sarasota case, according to the sheriffs ofce. Aldridges wife told the FBI she and her daughter sat in the familys truck in the Kohls parking lot be side the Wells Fargo Bank when Aldridge said he went to do something, according to the sheriffs ofce report. When Aldridge re turned he, jumped in the truck and sped off as he was removing his clothing. When Mrs. Aldridge asked what was going on, Michael Aldridge told her he had just robbed a bank. ROBBERY from page A2 From Staff Reports EBRO A Ponce de Leon woman died Mon day in a one-vehicle ac cident near Ebro, accord ing to a Florida Highway Patrol report. Benda G. Howard, 52, of Ponce de Leon died when her vehicle rolled over, went down an em bankment and into some trees. The accident occurred about one mile east of Ebro on Highway 20 in Washington County. The accident hap pened shortly before 8:00 a.m. Monday morning. According to the re port, she was not wearing a seat belt. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Special to the News MIAMI Take Stock in Children, a statewide nonprot organization with a solid history of providing scholarships, mentors and hope, is proud to announce the launch of Keeping the Promise, an initiative to raise enough funding to purchase college scholar ships for an additional 1,800 deserving low-income stu dents. This will increase the number of scholars currently served by 25 per cent to 9,000 active students across Florida. As a role model organi zation that has supported more than 18,000 students to date, over 80 percent whom are the rst in their family to attend college, Take Stock in Children re cently received national recognition for its exem plary successes. As a result of its win ning formula of provid ing low-income students scholarships, mentors and hope, the organization was awarded the prestigious Investing in Innovation grant from the U.S. Depart ment of Education, and also shined in a study by the Ofce of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability. On the heels of this success, the State of Florida demonstrated their belief in Take Stock in Chil dren by allocating an addi tional $1 million in funding with the understanding that the organization will register an additional 1,800 students. The State of Florida recognizes Take Stock in Children is a strong partner in the solution for improv ing education, says Emilio Alonso-Mendoza, Presi dent/CEO of Take Stock in Children. We must now keep the promise of provid ing a college education to these students by purchas ing 1,800 scholarships and recruiting caring mentors for each of them. Prior to enrolling any student Take Stock in Chil dren must rst secure the funding to purchase a col lege scholarship for them, as this is the promise made to all its scholars. In return, each student promises to meet with their mentor once a week, maintain a minimum grade point aver age of 2.5 and remain drug and crime free. Upon fulll ment of this agreement stu dents are awarded a college scholarship at high school graduation. To achieve this goal, indi viduals and businesses are needed to rally behind Take Stock Childrens Keep ing the Promise initiative. Volunteering, mentoring or providing resources to purchase scholarships will help ensure Floridas fu ture workforce is strong and improve our commu nities. With Take Stock in Childrens unique public and private model of fund ing, any contribution made is matched dollar for dollar by the state. Take Stock in Children plays a critical role in chang ing the face of education and has a long history of proven results, says Don Pember ton, State Board Chair of Take Stock in Children. We believe that knowledge is power and education is the best investment to trans form lives. The program offers a unique opportunity for stu dents with comprehensive services starting in middle school, continuing through high school and including assistance during the tran sition to college. With an unparalleled high school graduation rate of 92 per cent, and 89 percent enroll ing in college, Take Stock in Children contributes to the economic viability of our communities and delivers an unmatched return on in vestment. High school grad uates contribute 46 percent more in taxes, have longer lives with less public health dependency and are 3 times more likely to be employed and not dependent on gov ernment assistance. The total benet to the State of Florida is estimated to be $300,000 per student over a lifetime.

Ponce de Leon woman dies in accident Chamber slates credit seminar SPEED from page A2 roads and streets in order to provide access to another collector or arterial roadway. A residential street that would be eligible for a speed hump would be a street that has a problem with either cut-through trafc or vehicular speeding. In that case, the road is functioning as a minor collector road but may not have the standard pavement width, pavement structure, shoulder width or drainage to serve effectively as a collector road. Priority for trafc calming will be placed on streets where a higher density of housing exists, according to the policy. Cut-through trafc or speeding prob lems can be identied by the city through current trafc counts, speed surveys and projections of future trafc impact in ac cordance with long range development plans for the area. Speed humps can be requested by neighborhood residents, a regulatory agency such as the police department, a city council request or from a staff eld review. We denitely need it, Mayor Linda Cain said. I looked at the policy, and it looks good. I didnt see anything we had to add to it. In other business, the council ap proved a resolution for a Department of Transportation reimbursement to the city of nearly $12,000 for maintenance to trafc signals and approved the renewal of a lease until 2017 with WestPoint Home for the usage of a 50,000-square-foot warehouse the city owns. One change to the lease was the shortening of the notice of vacation requirement from six months to three months. The way that works is that if the warehouse is empty, then we dont have to make payments on the loan, Miner said. He added that WestPoint was not ex pected to leave the facility any time soon, but due to the volatile nature of the econ omy, they had requested the change. The council also voted unanimously to take back control of the citys website and Facebook pages from the Goulding Agency. The council discussed the citys web presence at the Aug. 16 meeting after resident Cheryl McCall asked the city council to consider retaking control of the citys Facebook page, citing slow perfor mance by the current service provider, the Goulding Agency. Miner said the Goulding Agency had gotten faster at posting items to the web site after he discussed the situation with agency owner Paul Goulding. However, the council voted to resume control of the websites. to follow Maloneys recom mendations, but they usu ally do, according to Shaw. The county also made a settlement offer to reduce the number of wells from 10 to eight and reduce the daily well withdraw als from 5 million gallons per day to 2 million gal lons per day. Bay County ofcials have said the well eld would be used as a backup water supply to Deer Point Lake in case of emergency. The settlement agree ment grants the Northwest Florida Water Manage ment District the authority to decide what constitutes an emergency. Proposed withdrawals from the well eld during an emergency 30 mil lion gallons per day for no more than 52 days re mains the same in settle ment proposal. The Northwest Florida Water Management Dis trict issued a notice of in tent to grant Bay County a permit for 10 water wells as a backup water supply to Deer Point Lake in Oc tober 2010. Washington County, the Knight Family Trust a large landowner in the area and two resi dents appealed the permit on the grounds it would have detrimental effects on the sensitive Sand Hills ecosystem. I think that Bay County is looking for a way to save face, said attorney John Thomas, who is represent ing Washington County. Thomas said Bay Coun ty has been arrogant throughout the case. I think the problem all along is Bay County thought they could get this permit without really mustering any evidence, he said. Thomas said his clients were not interested in the settlement offer because it fails to address their most pressing concern prox imity to the Washington County line and threat to their water resources. Thomas said he also would be arguing against the re quest to remand the issue to Maloney.

By TOM McLAUGHLIN 315-4435 | TomMnwfdn tmclaughlin@nwfdailynews.com State Attorney Bill Eddins said his of ce should take action this week in the case of Dr. Michael Berkland, a former associate medical examiner who performed autopsies for Okaloosa and Walton counties from 1997 to 2003. Organs or organ specimens belonging to more than 100 people were found Aug. 24 in a commercial storage unit Berkland had rented in Pensacola. They are believed to have come from private autopsies. Law enforcement authorities have been scrambling since nding the human body parts to determine what laws Berkland might have violated by keeping his organ collection. Weve reviewed the case, spoken to the attorney for the defendant, reviewed various laws that may apply to this situation and are continuing to review those laws, Eddins said. We anticipate a decision in this matter will be made later this week. Neither Berkland nor his attorney, Eric Stevenson of Pensacola, has returned phone calls seeking comment. Stevenson was quoted in a South Florida newspaper last week making a statement that seemed to con rm the organs belonged to Berkland. Every profession has a certain way it stores things related to their profession, Stevenson told the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. Ultimately, these were intended to go to the incinerator for destruction. Its no different than les in a lawyers of ce that ultimately go to a shredder. Jeff Martin, the chief investigator for First Judicial Circuits Medical Examiners Of ce, seemed to refute portions of Stevensons comments. Last week, Martin doubted several organs found in Berklands storage unit including fully intact brains, hearts and lungs could be considered forensic work product. The only time a medical examiner would keep an entire organ would be if it was going to be sent to a specialist. There were entire intact organs that had never been dissected, never touched, Martin said shortly after the discovery. I have no idea what the motivation behind keeping it was. Martin also said not all the organs Berkland brought to the storage facility had been labeled and some were not properly preserved. For instance, a heart was found stashed in a 32-ounce cup purchased at Dodges Store in Fort Walton Beach. The organs found at Uncle Bobs storage facility were discovered after someone took over the unit after Berkland had stopped paying for it, the Medical Examiners Of ce said. They were assumed to have been collected from the late 1990s through 2007 at autopsies performed outside the scope of Berklands medical examiner duties, the of ce said. The Daily News, a sister paper to The Washington County News, has con rmed Berkland performed autopsies after he left his job as associate medical examiner, although the Public Defenders Of ce denied Berkland performed autopsies for the agency. When he left the Medical Examiners Of ce, Berkland became a forensic consultant to the First Judicial Circuits Public Defenders Of ce, according to the Medical Examiners Of ce. He did consulting work on forensic issues, Public Defenders Of ce spokesman Mike Van Cavage said Tuesday. He worked a few cases, not many, Van Cavage said. Berkland still provides expert testimony in criminal cases, most recently in a controversial case in Bradenton Beach near Tampa. FSU PC enrollment tops 1,400 students By JESSICA McCARTHY 747-5073 | @PCNHJessica jmccarthy@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY Four years after budget cuts prompted discussions of closing the Florida State University Panama City campus, enrollment goals have been met, saving the campus. Were excited weve been able to grow as much as we have over the last four years and were able to provide continuing service to the students in Northwest Florida, said Ken Shaw, dean of the Panama City campus. After the option of closing FSU PC was discussed, a blue ribbon committee was formed and made recommendations to help keep the campus open. One of those goals was enrollment of 1,400 students by this fall. Shaw said the fall enrollment is 1,417. Shaw said the increases are not just natural growth; they can be attributed to more recruitment and online programs. Also, we have started some online programs that have really taken off, Shaw said. The computer science online program has mushroomed from a little over 100 students last year to more then 200 this year. That really helped our overall numbers. Shaw said this is not the end of their growth. The FSU board of trustees approved FSU PC for freshmen and sophomores beginning next year, Shaw said. We anticipate a freshman class of 200 students, which is a big increase. Over the course of the next four years, with classes like that, well be well over 2,000 students by 2016. Gulf World responds to rare whale stranding By VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman vgarman@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY BEACH The outlook did not look good Saturday night for the rare whale stranded on Seagrove Beach in South Walton. The stranding team from Gulf World Marine Institute in Panama City Beach responded to a call from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration at 11:30 p.m., after beachgoers reported a distressed 8-foot, 250-pound marine mammal stranded along the shoreline. After assessing the whale on the beach, the chances of survival didnt look good, said Secret Holmes-Douglas, director of marine mammals and facility stranding coordinator at Gulf World. When they strand on the beach, its their last chance for survival. Upon arrival, the team con rmed the animal was a melon-headed whale, a species not often seen in stranding incidents. Holmes-Douglas said the whale was emaciated and clearly ill. The Gulf World team worked to stabilize the animal as best they could and quickly removed the animal from the beach. Unfortunately, after transporting the female whale to the Gulf World rehabilitation center, she was determined too sick to be admitted for rehabilitation and was euthanized. Samples taken after death conrmed pneumonia, kidney disease and a large amount of parasites in the whale, as well as a number of abnormal organs. Pneumonia is common for marine mammals, Holmes-Douglas said. Youll see pneumonia in most stranding animals that come in. The samples will be sent to NOAA sheries for further examination to identify parasites, compare to past cases and conduct genetic testing. Holmes-Douglas said the team responds to a number of dolphin and pygmy sperm whale strandings in the area. However, the melon-headed whale, a member of the dolphin group, was only the second of its kind to be brought back to Gulf World in the last six years. We dont see a whole lot of them, said Holmes-Douglas, who noted that even though the whale did not survive, the stranding still provides her team with useful information for future strandings. Any information we collect is useful, she said. We learn something from each response and look for ways to improve. State attorney: Decision on organs to come this week MICHAEL BERKLAND ANDREW P JOHNSON | The News Herald A student walks through campus at Florida State University Panama City last month. The schools enrollment has topped 1,400. SPECIAL TO HALIFAX MEDIA Melon-headed whales like this one are small members of the dolphin group. They can reach a length of 9 feet and weight of 460 pounds. FWC charts next steps for Florida panther population Special to the News The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, working in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, plans to document where panthers are roaming beyond south Florida and develop the best practices to help people and panthers coexist. The efforts described in its recent staff report at the FWCs Commission meeting in Tampa would aid a potential northward expansion of the range of breeding panthers as part of the next steps in panther population recovery. Panther expansion northward is going to be, in large part, due to cooperation with private landowners, Commission Chairman Kenneth Wright said. The panther needs a large area to roam, as much as 200 square miles for an adult male. In South Florida, panthers have access to federally managed public lands such as Everglades National Park, Big Cypress National Preserve and the Panther National Wildlife Refuge in addition to state and privately owned lands. In the southern part of central Florida, a key area for potential expansion of the large cat, more panther habitat is privately owned. We have room for more panther population growth as long as we manage areas successfully, said Commissioner Ronald Bergeron, who suggested it should be a priority both to conserve the core population in south Florida and prepare for expansion north of the Caloosahatchee River. We have to target the heart of where the panthers are, and continue to move forward with good habitat and with underpasses to protect panthers crossing highways. In the coming months, staff said the FWC will be collaborating closely with stakeholders, including private landowners in central Florida, about what information and resources they need to feel prepared for an increased presence of panthers. The commissioners supported this approach, particularly an exploration of what panther-related conservation incentives should be made available to landowners. For expansion, I think we have to see some version of good wildlife corridors or good unfragmented habitat, said Commissioner Aliese Liesa Priddy. We need to get realistic about what our goals should be and what habitat is available. The panther is Floridas of cial state animal. All funding for state research and conservation of panthers comes from Florida residents voluntary purchase of the panther specialty license plate.

Saturday, September 8, 2012 Many years ago, my father served as president of his local Chamber of Commerce. He occasionally came home from meetings frustrated because people were laughing at his ideas for ushering the city into the next century. They simply didnt believe his suggestions were possible. The towns economy had long hinged on a rapidly dying industry. People were thrown into complete panic (and even pretended to act surprised) when those industries began shutting down one after another. My father kept telling anybody who would listen that the town needed to aggressively re-train the workforce and court new high-tech industries. They needed to forget about yesterdays money makers, because their time had come and gone. The only real solution was to leave the past behind and move forward. But theres no moving forward when people dont believe in themselves. So the townspeople sat around moaning about their lost jobs, and they waited for the old factories to come back. That was decades ago, and theyre still waiting. Dad kept telling them that any company wanting unskilled or low-tech labor could easily nd it overseas without having to pay U.S. wages, but no one seemed to care. They also didnt believe that once-productive industries would eventually go the way of the horse and buggy, but they did. People passively watched while even more of their jobs got outsourced. Meanwhile, other cities were able to successfully attract new businesses using strategies much like those my father had presented. Thats because those towns had suf ciently proven that their citizens were willing to adapt and learn new skill sets demanded by global corporations. Can you train a person of average intelligence to work in high-tech industry? Certainly, you can. Unless, of course, that worker continutally argues that he or she cant learn such skills or worse yet, is betrayed by city fathers who insist that their own citizens are too ignorant to rise to the task. Enough arguing, and a potential employer will move on to others who can get the job done. Employers need a work force that isnt bogged down in the past. The word cant wasnt in my fathers vocabulary, but he found out that it was apparently the only word that some people had ever learned. Do you have a can do attitude when it comes to progress, or are you content to sit around dreaming about what used to be? Heres a guarantee for you: time is going to pass. It will pass whether youre ready for it or not. Ten years will speed by regardless of whether youre using the time wisely or foolishly. By the end of that decade, will you have put yourself in a better position nancially, emotionally and spiritually? Or will you just be ten years older and wondering what happened? I mentioned spiritual progess, and yes, I believe that any worthwhile form of spirituality involves progress and learning. If youre a member of an organized religious group, its important to ask yourself what kind of progress youre making. Are you constantly learning new things, expanding your knowledge, growing in your faith and otherwise moving forward? If not, why? Beware of organizations, including religious ones, that arent moving forward. By moving forward, I dont mean jumping on the latest theological fads. There are fads and buzzwords in religion just as much as anywhere else. To see evidence of Christian fads, go to any thrift store or ea market and take a look at the book shelves. There are certain books that are common as dirt. They can hardly be given away, and are practically falling off the thrift store shelves. Thats because they were hot for about a month, and then everybody dumped them for the next new craze that came blowing in. If your theology requres a different bumpersticker or T-shirt every month, you might want to seek out something a little more stable. By spiritual progress, Im referring to a sense of actually having learned something. Im talking about growth and change. Religion, like everything else, depends upon learning. In any area of life, if youre not moving forward, youre wasting your time. That may sound harsh, but its true. Have you learned anything new in the past month? No? Then you need to be doing something else. One of the most harmful phrases in the English language is But weve always done it that way. If somebody hadnt decided to do things differently, wed still be sitting in the dark without electric lights. In religion, clinging to the past can be downright dangerous. Some religions historically supported devastating practices such as slavery and the denial of womens rights. Even today, there are religions that openly condone bigotry. Its time to move ahead and leave such ideas where they belong in the past. Whether in commerce, nance, personal relationships or religion, theres only one direction to go: forward. A city cant run on antiquated industries, and a soul cant run on yesterdays worn-out ideas. When people choose the path of progress, all of humanity will reap the bene ts.

Dan Hendrix, City Clerk Special to the News TALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott proclaimed September as Florida Preparedness Month on Wednesday, and the Florida Division of Emergency Manage ment reminds Floridians that September is the historical peak of hurricane season and there is no better time than today to get a plan for your family or business. In 2004, September was desig nated as National Preparedness Month following the September 11th tragedies. Florida Preparedness Month provides a great opportunity to educate Floridas residents and visitors on the importance of having a plan and disaster sup ply kit, said Florida Division of Emergency Management Di rector Bryan W. Koon. Regard less of where you live in Florida, you can be impacted by a tropi cal weather system. Many in our state have felt the impact of weather systems this season with Tropical Storms Beryl and Debby and Hurricane Isaac. You do not have to live in a coastal community to be impacted. While Florida is the most hur ricane vulnerable state in the nation, it is important to be pre pared for all natural and manmade hazards that may impact the state. Natural hazards facing Florida include extreme heat, tropical weather, thunderstorms, tornadoes, wildre oods and drought. National Preparedness Month was established in re sponse to the largest man-made disaster on American soil. This month serves as a reminder to all Floridians to remain vigilant about the threat of both natural hazards and other disasters. All Floridians should take per sonal responsibility and develop a disaster preparedness plan based on their own needs, and an emergency supply kit to sus tain themselves and their family for up to 72 hours after a disaster by visiting www.FloridaDisas ter.org. Kids can also build their own disaster supply kit at www. kidsgetaplan.com. Students, parents and teachers can also obtain safety information, books and learning tools to be better prepared. The 2012 Atlantic Hurricane Season began on June 1. Halfway through the six month season, three tropical storms have al ready impacted Florida and thir teen tropical systems have been named, including seven tropical storms and ve hurricanes.

Community EVENTS Governor Scott proclaims September Florida Preparedness Month Special to the News TALLAHASSEE The Florida Divi sion of Emergency Management reminds residents and visitors to use caution when visiting the beach, as a high risk of rip currents is expected along some of Floridas coasts this week. Along the Atlantic Coast, from Nassau through Mar tin County, ocean swells from Trop ical Storm Leslie are generating a high risk of rip currents. The risk of rip currents will also increase along the Southeast Florida coast, from Palm Beach County through Miami-Dade County this weekend. Additionally, an area of low pres sure moving southward into the northern Gulf of Mexico will gener ate rough surf and large breaking waves up to 3-6 feet. The Emerald Coast, from Escambia through Gulf County, will see a moderate to high risk of rip currents through the end of the week. Ocean swells from distant Tropical Storm Leslie as well as an area of low pressure in the north ern Gulf of Mexico bring a moder ate to high rip current risk to some of Florida beaches, which will likely persist through the upcom ing weekend, said FDEM Dep uty State Meteorologist Michelle Palmer. Beachgoers should re member to review the rip current outlook for their area, check the warning ag signs before entering the water and swim within sight of a lifeguard. It is important to remember that when red ags are ying, beachgo ers should remain alert while visit ing Floridas beaches. A rip current is a narrow, powerful current of wa ter that runs perpendicular to the beach, out into the ocean. These currents may extend 200 to 2,500 feet (61 to 762 meters) in length, but are typically less than 30 feet (9 meters) wide. Rip currents can of ten move at more than 5 miles per hour (8 kilometers per hour) and are not always identiable to the average beachgoer. When at the beach: Before you leave for the beach, check the latest National Weather Service forecast for local beach conditions. Many ofces issue a Surf Zone Forecast. Obey all instructions and or ders from lifeguards. Lifeguards are trained to identify hazards. Know the meaning of and obey warnings represented by colored beach ags. Different beaches may use different colors but a commonly used series include: Double Red: Beach is closed to the public Single Red: high hazard, e.g., strong surf or currents Yellow: medium hazard Green: Calm conditions al though caution is still necessary Purple: Flown with either Red or Yellow: Dangerous marine life Stay at least 100 feet away from piers and jetties. Permanent rip currents often exist alongside these structures. Pay especially close attention to children and persons who are elderly when at the beach. Even in shallow water, wave action can cause loss of footing. Be cautious. Always assume rip currents are present even if you dont see them. If caught in a rip current: Dont panic. Remain calm to conserve energy and think clearly. Never swim against the rip. Stay aoat and signal for help. Swim out of the current in a direction following the shoreline. When out of the current, swim at an angle--away from the current-towards shore. If you are unable to swim out of the rip current, oat or calmly tread water. Draw attention to yourself: face the shore, wave your arms, and yell for help. If you see someone in trouble, dont become a victim too: Get help from a lifeguard or, if one is unavailable, have some one call 9-1-1. Throw the rip current victim something that oats a lifejack et, a cooler, an inatable ball. Yell instructions on how to escape. The 2012 Atlantic Hurricane Season began June 1 and contin ues through Nov. 30.
