We have what you need for SUPER BOWL SUNDAY! By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The rst civil commitment case under the Jimmy Ryce Act to be heard in Washington County occurred Tuesday when a jury found Alton Hartzog to be a sexually violent predator based on the evidence provided by the state. As a result of the six-person jurys nding, Hartzog, 73, will be committed inde nitely to the Florida Civil Commitment Center in Arcadia, where he has been held since his release from prison in 2008. The case was tried in front of District Court Judge Christopher Patterson in Chipley. Basically, he has been locked up 10 years for a ve year sentence, said Marianna Attorney Crystal Marsh, representing Hartzog. Marsh is assistant regional counsel for the Of ce of Criminal Con ict and Civil Regional Counsel, 14th Judicial District. Hartzog, a former Washington County resident, pled guilty in 2004 to 14 counts of sexual performance with a minor in connection with photographs he took of a 7-yearold and a 9-year-old girl. Hartzog was found guilty of possession of photo/ picture showing sexual performance by a child in Bay County in 2004 and found guilty of possession of photo/picture showing sexual performance by a child and producing, directing or promoting sexual performance by a child in Washington County court in 2004.

Local A2 | Washington County News Saturday, February 2, 2013 According to Wikipedia, Agenda 21 is a non-binding, voluntarily implemented action plan of the United Nations with regard to sustainable development. It is an action agenda for the UN, other multilateral organizations, and individual governments around the world that can be executed at local, national, and global levels. The government wants to control every aspect of humanity, Schoen said. Agenda 21 has set us on a path to destroy Florida. Individual property rights have taken a back seat to the good of the collective. Neither Coley nor Gaetz had any comment on Schoens statement. On a more local concern, Vernon Elementary School PTO President Tara Dockery asked the legislators to consider providing more funding to local schools to improve security. Dockery took her concerns to the Washington County School Board and the Board of County Commissioners earlier in January, and the BOCC recommended she also approach the legislators. Dockery said she had a petition with 400 signatures of concerned parents she had presented to the school board. We want to make safety a top priority, she said. Right now in the House this discussion is being held, Coley said. This is a very timely subject. If there are additional funds available, do you believe there should be exibility in how the money is allocated or should there be a recipe on how to use the funds? Gaetz asked Dockery. I would trust our school board to do the right thing, they have done a good job, Dockery said. Mike DeRuntz, the countys senior planner, asked the legislators to help Washington County receive their portion of the RESTORE Act funding when it came available. The RESTORE Act funds are federal and Congress will be the deciding force in distributing those funds, Gaetz said. Were out of the drivers seat. Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Ted Everett asked for Legislative support in expanding the Washington County Enterprise Zone from 20 square miles to encompass the entire county. Twenty square miles does not cover quite what we could use, Everett said. Most counties have an ag eld they call an industrial park, with no utilities or water, and that isnt going to do much for bringing jobs to an area. Everett used Ebro as an example. There is only nine-tenths of a mile of Enterprise Zone at the intersection of Highways 20 and 79 in Ebro, and I believe one day that is going to be the biggest intersection in the county. However, now to expand the Enterprise Zone and offer incentives to businesses to locate there, the county would have to take away zone status from some other community. I can say that Marti Coley is one of the strongest voices in the Legislature for rural economic development, Gaetz said. I understand how this could be bene cial to our counties, Coley said of the request. County Commissioner Alan Bush also asked the legislators to help with the Washington County budget, citing numerous cuts to county revenue from the state. Gaetz said he doesnt know where all the money Gov. Rick Scott has been proposing to spend is going to come from, but said the Legislature would be challenged in the coming session to fund everything. Were waiting to see what the President and Congress do in March with this new scal emergency, Gaetz said. If they dont step up, we can go into automatic sequester and the state will be drowning in red ink.

Hartzog was incarcerated in the Department of Corrections until 2008, when he was released from prison, only to be detained in the state Civil Commitment Center pending treatment nearly ve years ago. During the intervening years, Hartzog has not received treatment at the Civil Commitment Center, due to his failing health and a succession of lawyers who have tried to represent him in his ght against the state. Marsh said she received the case in October. I got it just in time to go to trial. The state has been committing individuals deemed sexually violent predators to incarceration and statemandated treatment. The evidence against Hartzog in Tuesdays trial primarily consisted of the testimony of psychologists, based on evaluations that were performed on Hartzog in 2008, as well as the fact that Hartzog had indeed been convicted of sexual offenses in 2004. Prosecuting Attorney Zachary Taylor of Panama City, an attorney with the law of ce Manuel and Thompson, said he is a former prosecutor and he works part time for the state prosecuting cases under the Jimmy Ryce Act of 1999, which is also known as the Jimmy Ryce Involuntary Civil Commitment for Sexually Violent Predators Treatment and Care Act. Taylor said he as tried 13 of these commitment cases in the district over the past ve or six years, mainly in Bay County, and he has won them all. Tuesdays case was the rst Jimmy Ryce Act case tried in Washington County, and it proved no exception to Taylors record, with the four women and two men of the jury taking less than 25 minutes to come to a verdict, following a six-hour trial. In closing arguments, Marsh pointed out that the states psychologists said there was a seven percent chance that Hartzog would reoffend in the next ve years, based upon their studies and their nding that he is a diagnosed pedophile. That means there is a 93 percent chance that he wont reoffend in the next ve years, Marsh told the jury. His life expectancy might be less than his chance of reoffending. Taylor said that commitment was the best thing for Hartzog. This isnt a case of throwing away the key on someone, we want Mr. Hartzog to get the treatment he needs so he will no longer be a threat to society. We hope someday he can be released, but not until he gets the treatment and care that he needs.

BRIEF from page A1 We were looking for events that were free or low cost, TDC member Scott Sweeney said. The itinerary of the tours can always be modi ed, but the idea was to keep the tour low cost tourists will pay $35 to take the tours of Washington and Jackson County. If we add too many things, it can wind up costing like a trip to Disney World, Sweeney said. We dont want that. The TDC bid farewell to one of their longtime members Monday as Jim Town was feted for his eightplus years of service to the council. Jim, you have single handedly brought this council to the level that it is, said Everett. You gave us a good set of basics, good bylaws, good procedures and a budget that we can look at and understand. I enjoyed working with you all, and I just wish I could leave you with rising revenues, Town said. Although Town said he plans to travel the world, he noted he wouldnt be too far away for the most part. The house is going to stay where it is, he said. The council approved a grant request from the Orange & Bluegrass Festival for $2,000. The bluegrass festival is sponsored by the Vernon Athletic Boosters and will be held on April 5 and 6 near Vernon. They also approved a grant request from the North Bay Clan of the Lower Muscogee Creek for $700 to advertise the Veterans Day Pow Wow, to be held Nov. 8, 9 and 10 south of Chipley. The council will also submit the names of Dana Phillips and Mark Hess to the Board of County Commissioners for approval as members of the TDC. The BOCC is expected to vote on the nominations Feb. 28.

Its been quite an adventure. There have admittedly been a few challenges, including enduring the summer heat and having to produce what seemed like a thousand pieces of legal documentation just to obtain a Florida drivers license, but I feel happy and blessed to be here. Ive already met some amazing people, and have had many interesting experiences. One aspect of my work involves reading historical newspapers. Every day, I read old papers from across the nation. That includes local publications. In a 1920s issue of the Chipley Banner, the paper boasted that Chipley had many different businesses and amenities, including a telegraph office, a blacksmith shop, a chicken hatchery, two dental parlors, three meat markets, a moving picture theater, a millinery store, a canning factory, two newspapers, a soft drink bottling works, an ice factory, a chiropractor and an undertaker. For those who wished to join, there were several lodges and clubs available, including the Knights of Pythias, the Odd Fellows, Woodmen of the World, and the Masons. Women could join the Order of the Eastern Star, the Womans Club, or the Pythian Sisters. The city also hosted the Florida National Egg Laying Contest. Well, Chipley may no longer have a millinery store, but theres more business in Chipley today than the city fathers of those bygone days couldve dreamed of. Between the various businesses, civic clubs, schools, libraries, religious institutions, social activities and other offerings in this area, Washington and Holmes Counties both have a great deal to be proud of. Prior to moving here, my husband and I often vacationed at the Gulf Coast. When we had to leave, Id watch forlornly as the beautiful waves disappeared from sight, knowing that I had to return to my landlocked state. We rst encountered the beauty of the Gulf of Mexico during a full moon, and often tried to time our visits to coincide with it. When we couldnt get away, wed look up at the full moon and wistfully sigh, You know where we should be, meaning that we should be at the Gulf Coast. On the rst full moon we saw after our arrival here, my husband said, You know where we should be and here we are! Now, were within one county of a trip to the beach. We dont have to wait for a vacation to hit the water anymore. When were not at the waterfront, were in Washington County, an amazing place to live and work. When moving, we had a choice of relocating to several different states. Im glad we chose this one. During the past year, weve met some fantastic people, and are looking forward to meeting even more. Every morning when I look out the window and see a palm tree, I feel grateful to be living in Florida. CHARITY OF THE WEEK Lions International Lions International isnt a charity, but a service organization. Like many service organizations, this group has generated an astounding amount of charitable aid. There are Lions Clubs right here in our area, and any city with a Lions Club has got a humanitarian powerhouse on its side. Lions not only bene t the communities in which theyre located, but provide aid globally. Active in over 200 countries, Lions are famous for their work in preventing blindness. Theyve funded over 8 million cataract surgeries. One small way you can help the Lions in their work is to donate your old eyeglasses. Eyeglasses are recycled, refurbished and distributed to those who might not be able to see without them. Whether its local community improvement projects, sight programs, disaster preparedness or global health initiatives, over one million members of Lions International stand ready to serve the public.

of Washington CountyWashington County Business Volume 6, Number 3 Washington County, Florida February March 2013WE BELIEVE IN WASHINGTON COUNTY! Education and jobs in Florida demand access to broadbandJim Brook, Executive Director Opportunity Florida e Florida Legislature has approved an aggressive plan to convert learning materials and resources from print to digital. By the 2015-16 school year, 50% or more of the millions of dollars traditionally spent for traditional textbooks will be reallocated to digital delivery through Kindles, Nooks, IPads, Androids, Electronic notebooks and gadgets. To implement this plan the Florida Department of Education has formed the Florida 2.0 Digital Learning Group, to study and make plans to ensure that Floridas schools are equipped with the infrastructure, quality instruction and institutional reform to convert the States educational resources from paper to digital. Many of todays top careers did not even exist 10 years ago, according to Florida Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson, pointing to digital learning as an increasingly important and critical aspect of education and crucial to the preparation of students for jobs in the 21st Century. Quality and relevant education is key to economic development and a higher quality of life in the rural areas of Florida. Construction of the infrastructure to deliver this digital content is a major issue. at issue is being addressed by Floridas Rural Regional Economic Development Organizations, including Opportunity Florida. Opportunity Florida is the marketing name for the Northwest Florida Business Development Council, a public-private partnership of business and industry working in tandem with county governments, allied agencies and local economic development organizations to build and create economic opportunity in nine (9) rural counties of the eastern half of the Northwest Florida Panhandle. Opportunity Florida supports economic development in those counties that are part of the Northwest Florida Rural Area of Critical Economic Concern (RACEC) established over a decade ago by the Governor and Florida Legislature (Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty & Washington Counties). Washington County, as a member of Opportunity Florida, has continued to support the many eorts of this organization. Several business leaders from Washington County, Darrin Wall from Gulf Power, Gary Clark of West Florida Coop, Tommy Meade of Southeastern Surveyors and Ted Everett of the Washington County Chamber of Commerce currently sit on the Board of Opportunity Florida and have been involved with the project of bringing broadband to rural counties such as Washington County. For the past four years Opportunity Florida has been working with the National Technology Information Agency (NTIA), engineers and consultants to fund, design and construct a wireless middle-mile broadband network through eight counties in northwest Florida and seven in the south central region of the state. e Florida Rural Broadband Alliance, Inc system is being designed to deliver middle-mile or wholesale broadband transmission and internet to community anchor institutions (CAI) and retail providers in rural areas. Local governments and agencies are key entities to make this service aordable. Spaces on tower structures, including water tanks and existing radio antenna structures are being donated by local governments and agencies as in-kind assets to the wireless system. In fact, over $10 million of the total $34 million dollar project must be contributed by nonfederal public and private entities. e federal government, taxpayer funded grant is for $24 million. Between now and July 31, crews will be working in Washington and surrounding counties building-out the antenna and radio equipment to create a robust, wireless, broadband pipeline designed to increase digital capacity in rural Florida. Future jobs and economic growth will depend upon highly educated, trained workers who will require digital content, resources and delivery. e Washington County Chamber of Commerce working with economic development partners like Opportunity Florida continue to take steps to ensure Washington County is prepared and can compete for economic growth.

PROVIDES A BUSINESS INVESTMENT Tax Deductible Chamber Investments EDC Investments and Opportunities to be involved in Economic Development Eorts in Washington County Ted EverettI trust each of you had a great holiday season and have welcomed the New Year with a renewed sense of optimism. Indeed, if we look our Countys and States unemployment rate, they been coming down over the last 12 months. Florida still is maintaining its triple star credit rating and the state budget has been reduced by almost $2.3 billion. Unfortunately, the unemployment rate for Washington County is still high and building permit lings are still very low. Rural counties are typically the last to feel the eects of a rising economy but there are some things that the Chamber is actively pursuing that would be of some help to the County. I have spoken directly with both State representatives Marti Coley and Jimmy Patronis about the way the current Enterprise Zones are set up in Rural Areas of Critical Economic Concern (RACEC) counties, Currently, each county that is classied as RACEC receives 20 square miles of geography in which special zone(s) are created as an Enterprise Zone(s). Any business that creates a new, full -time position can apply for and receive 20 to 45 percent of that new employees salary as either a credit against a sales tax obligation of the employer or as a credit against Corporate Income, if that is their structure. While this is good, there are many businesses which open up outside these zones. e Chamber recognizes this inconsistency and is pursuing ways in which the State could increase the zones boundaries to include the entire County. We have approached Rep. Patronis as chair of the Economic Development Committee and Rep. Coley as the Speaker Pro Tem to solicit their assistance to expand Enterprise Zone boundaries for Washington County as well as all other RACEC counties. e Chamber also will develop avenues for the new Economic Development Council to work more closely with local businesses. Many businesses have legislative issues and we hope to provide assistance with these issues. It is not always easy to bring the needed changes to a community and especially one that does not have a lot of infrastructure in place. We will be working with both Dan Miner, the Chipley City administrator and Steve Joyner, the County administrator, to see what we can all do to help foster a better climate for business growth. e Economic Development Council asked them both to serve on the Council so that a better ow of ideas could exist between business and local government to have the best chance of improving Washington County employment. I am very hopeful that with all the people that are involved in our new Economic Development Council and the plans beginning to take shape, we can see a better economic climate as we move forward into 2013. Nicole BareeldI dont know of a business or organization in Washington County thats not trying to gure out the future for their company. How government regulations and economic conditions will impact their ability to survive and prosper. ese are uncertain times indeed. And yet, we have a great resource for support that often goes untapped your Chamber of Commerce. is 300-plus member-driven organization of diverse talents, skills and expertise can be a driving force for economic growth when it joins together. In other words, when members help members, good things can happen for all. Check out pages 10 and 12 of this Advocate for a list of your fellow Chamber members; I think youll be amazed. So how can you help each other through the Chamber? Be involved. Take part in events and activities designed to educate and build connections. Share your expertise in one of the committees: marketing, special activities and membership services. Be an Ambassador; chair Cindy Brown shares her story on page 5. Let us know about your business needs, challenges and how the Chamber can help you. In the next few months members will be invited to participate in a short survey about the Chamber; please take the time to respond. Too often we hear, what does the Chamber do for me? I challenge you as a member -to ask, what can I do for the Chamber? I hope to hear from you soon.

After listening as they related their plan for a tourist destination center, he, in measured tones, said: I dont hold much with carnival rides. So Walt Disneys folks went to Orlando and soon Disneyworld came with its thrill rides and comic book characters and castles and palaces. And West Florida was left with rivers and streams and rst magnitude springs, complete with ora and fauna, and great forests and beaches, and history that precedes the Spanish invasion. Judy Randall, president of Randall Travel Services, the premier tourism company of the southeastern United States, called Interstate 10 a river of money at a March 2010 Jackson County Chamber power breakfast. She told of the millions of vehicles that moved annually on the east-west route and described the passengers: sales representatives, families, truck drivers -some going on by, some staying at roadside hotels. And she told the attendees what the visitors were looking for. ey are eager to have a home-style meal in a nice restaurant, IF they knew where to nd one. Some would like to visit parks and attractions that were not as hokey as the theme parks, IF they could only knew about them. Many would like mementos, handcrafted by locals, that would be conversation pieces back home in Indiana or Kansas or Texas or California IF they were able to nd them.
