By MATTHEW BEATON 522-5114 | @matthewbeaton Mbeaton@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY Only two counties in the state are less healthy than Washington County, according to rankings released by a nonpro t organization Wednesday. Bay and other Panhandle counties nished closer to the middle of the pack. The 2013 County Health Rankings outlined several factors, which, directly or indirectly, impact residents overall well-being. These included smoking, drinking, obesity, teen pregnancy and even high school graduation. The study was conducted as a partnership between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute. It included nearly every county in the U.S. Its not a huge surprise, Rick Davis said of Washington Countys nearbottom ranking, 65th out of 67 counties. As the countys health department administrator, Davis is aware Washington County has been ranked poorly for the last three or four years, remaining in the bottom 10. Last year it was 64th. I dont think its any secret that the populations health in Washington County and most small, rural counties is below average for the state, he said. Washington County performed worse than the state average in nearly every category. For example, 25 percent of its residents are in poor or fair health, compared to 16 percent statewide and 17 percent in Bay County. About 9 percent of the countys babies are born with a low birth weight, compared to 8.7 percent statewide and 8.4 percent in Bay County. Twenty-seven percent of the countys adults smoke; 19 percent smoke statewide and 22 percent do in Bay County. Thirty-six percent of the countys adults are obese, compared with 26 percent statewide and 27 percent in Bay County. AREA HEALTH RANKINGS Out of 67 Florida counties, here is how area counties fared in a newly released health study: Bay: 35 Calhoun: 46 Franklin: 33 Gulf: 34 Holmes: 52 Jackson: 49 Walton: 41 Washington: 65 County 65th in states healthy residents See HEALTHY A2 By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT email@example.com CHIPLEY Washington County businesses may be eligible to file claims for losses due to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill of 2010, even if they were initially denied by the BP claims offices, said Ron Bell, director of sales for NFW Consulting. Bell spoke to the Washington County Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, at Northwest Florida Community Hospital, during the chambers monthly Third Thursday breakfast meeting. Deepwater Horizon was the largest offshore oil spill in U.S. history. While drilling at the Macondo Prospect 0n April 20, 2010, an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig caused by a blowout and killed 11 crewmen. The explosion also ignited a fireball visible from 35 miles away. The resulting fire could not be extinguished and, on April 22, Deepwater Horizon sank, leaving the well gushing at the seabed. The oil spill decimated the economy in this area, Bell said. When it first occurred to BP that they had a bad PR problem, they hired an independent insurance adjustment firm to handle the claims. Bell explained that when catastrophes such as hurricanes or tornadoes occur, insurance companies often hire independent adjustment firms to help with the numerous claims filed. BP hired one of those firms to handle the initial claims from businesses seeking reparations following the oil spill. On those initial claims, in some cases BP was paying more than 10 times what the loss was worth, Bell said. Then BP realized it was putting too much money in the wrong hands. Consultant: County was affected by 2010 spill See SPILL A2 Special to the News GREENHEAD Northwest Florida Reception Center is proud to announce that 24 inmates out of the 30 who took the GED test are now high school graduates. With more and more jobs requiring a minimum of a high school degree to go to work for them, teachers and of cers are doing their part to help inmates succeed when they are released. Everyone is committed to the slogan: When they succeed we succeed. The staff at Northwest Florida Reception Center is working together to help inmates who want to earn their GED before they are released, have that opportunity, said Katherine Moat, PTS at the Northwest Florida Reception Center Annex. Through hard work in the dorms with fellow inmates tutoring them, classrooms in the therapeutic community, one on one help with their educational goals and monitoring progress through testing,each inmate has proven they have the desire to learn. Failed attempts in the past no longer haunt them and they can hold up their heads high knowing they earned their diplomas through adversity. Reception Center inmates receive GEDs See GED s A2 Games, food, bounce houses and Easter eggs were all in abundance Wednesday at Shivers Park in Chipley when several area churches came together to host a community Easter egg hunt.

Woodrick, CFP 850-215-2244 | www.SeriousMoneyAdvisor.com Securities oered through LPL Financial, Member FINRA/SIPC Thirty percent of the countys adults report not exercising in their leisure time, compared with 24 percent statewide and in Bay County. Teen pregnancy Another striking gure is the teen birth rate, which was very high in rural counties. For every 1,000 female teenagers 15 to19 years old, Washington County had 57 births compared 40 statewide. Bay County had 56 births per 1,000 teens; Calhoun County had 57; Franklin County had 82; Gulf County had 44; Holmes County had 68 births; Jackson County had 55; and Walton County had 53. Davis said the countys health department offers minors free, con dential birth control and no parents will ever be noti ed of their visit. Increased use of the free service could reduce teen pregnancy numbers in the future. In Bay County, minors also can get free, con dential birth control from the Health Department, but they must ll it at a pharmacy. Adults also can receive free birth control, provided they meet certain income criteria, said Julia Ruschmann, county health department spokeswoman. Free condoms always are available. Ruschmann said the Health Department does not assist teens looking to get an abortion. Other counties Overall, Bay County ranked 35th of the states 67 counties; last year it was 34th. Calhoun County was 46th; Franklin County was 33rd; Gulf County was 34th; Holmes County was 52nd; Jackson County was 49th; and Walton County was 41st. Of the eight counties, Franklin County had the worst high school graduation rate at 59 percent, and Gulf had the highest smoking rate at 29 percent. Of the eight counties, Calhoun County followed Washington County with an obesity rate of 34 percent, followed by Jackson at 33 percent. Income and availability of healthy food can be a factor. Thirty-four percent of the children in Washington County live in poverty, compared to 25 percent statewide and 23 percent in Bay County. Meanwhile, 52 percent of Washington Countys restaurants are fast-food joints, compared with 44 percent statewide and 42 percent in Bay County. Socioeconomic factors For the state, 71 percent of high schoolers graduated in four years, while 59 percent of adults had some college. But, that was better than Washington County, with its 69 percent high school graduation rate and 42 percent some college rate. Bay County had a graduation rate of 68 percent and some college rate of 59 percent. Davis also said Washington County needs to improve its personal health education and responsibility. He feels the problem is institutionalized in rural counties and there is little health departments can do. He said they cant force people to live healthier, more responsible lives. We try to educate, but this is a democracy. I cannot force you to not eat a piece of fried chicken. If you want to go out back and smoke, thats between you and your employer, he said. I cant force you to not smoke, and I cant force you to exercise. HEALTHY from page A1 Then the process went to the Gulf Coast Claims Facility, under Kenneth Feinberg, and the GCCF turned down many claims and lost a lot of the paperwork that residents led with the organization, Bell said. Soon, a federal lawsuit led in Louisiana led to a settlement from BP in which $7 billion was made accessible to pay claims through the Deepwater Horizon Claims Center. Likewise, the nations best economists were called upon to come up with a formula for calculating loss due to the oil spill and the resultant economic downturn a formula that came out in a 1,000 page document, Bell said. NWF Consulting came about as a company when a Santa Rosa County entrepreneur, Harrell Downey, tried to submit claims for his nancial advising and real estate businesses and was denied by the GCCF. Downey learned how to le a claim with the Deepwater Horizon Claims Center, using the complex formula, then began teaching others how to le a claim by holding seminars along the coast, Bell said. The resulting rm, NWA Consulting, became the top Deepwater claims experts in the country, he added. In the case of the rst two programs, it was the case of the proverbial fox guarding the henhouse, Bell said. With the settlement claims center, BP is no longer in charge of who can le. Some businesses are, however, not allowed to le claims, including banks, nancial advisors and BP gas stations. Most other businesses, however, can le a Deepwater Horizon claim if they can show that there was a downturn in pro ts in 2010. The way they determine if you have a claim is to look at your pro ts from 2007 to 2011, Bell said. If they can show that you had a downturn in pro t, then they do this calculation and it tells you how much you will get paid. NWF Consulting will le claims for local businesses, and the consultants receive a 15 percent fee on whatever amount is collected. Bell said that on average it costs NWF Consulting $7,500 to le a claim, but that cost is covered by the consulting rm and they only get paid if they collect a claim payment. Washington County falls into zones C and D as far as claims go, with the A zone being directly on the coast. However, in the case of Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana, the entire states are considered affected areas so towns such as McComb, Miss., which are not costal at all, have received claims. People are ling claims, and getting paid, Bell said. What weve seen, is if we look at four claims, one will get paid. This is pulling a lot of money back into our economy, and that is having a positive impact. SPILL from page A1 GED s from page A1 It takes all areas in the correctional environment working together for inmates to achieve this accomplishment. When it comes to helping inmates who want to help themselves, everyone working together in the corrections environment are dedicated to improving lives not just incarceration, said Moat. The leadership of the institution encourages each and every staff member to put forth effort in encouraging the inmates under their care to earn a GED if they have been unsuccessful in the past. With the Warden and Assistant Wardens support, the staff at the institution can look ahead knowing that they are doing their part for the betterment of inmates who will be going out into communities one day with more than they had when they entered.

IN BRIEF from page A1 Special to The News Every other Sunday afternoon, youll nd about 30 Washington County 4-Hers and their parents at the archery range or skeet/ trap range for shooting sports practice. Theyre laughing, talking and having a good time, but as soon as they step up to shooting line, the expressions on their faces let you know this is serious business to them. Across the nation, the 4-H Shooting Sports program has become one of the most popular programs, and Florida 4-H is no exception. Washington County 4-H hosts two of the shooting sports disciplines in shotgun and archery. Taking a deeper look into the program, youll learn that youth arent just being taught to shoot targets with accuracy; they are learning positive skills that will go with them throughout their lives. The mission of Extension 4-H programs is positive youth development. The different programs, including shooting sports, are vehicles to achieve this. Not only are youth learning safe and responsible use of rearms and principles of archery, they are developing life skills in self-con dence, personal discipline, responsibility and sportsmanship. Shotgun coach, Gary Clark, stated that safety is the top priority in everything he teaches his members. At a recent shotgun coach recerti cation session, the trainer commented that Sure Shots 4-H Club members were some of the most conscientious youth she had worked with and that Clarks dedication to teaching safety and respect for rearms was evident in everything the 4-Hers did. Samantha Raney knows rsthand the value of the 4-H Youth Development program; once a Washington County 4-Her, Raney is now a 4-H volunteer and coach of Top Nocks 4-H Club. While shes participated in everything from science projects to public speaking to consumer judging, she says that the shooting sports program was one of the most bene cial experiences that she had as a 4-Her, and she wants to pass that on to other kids. At the recent Florida 4-H state archery match, 4-H Juniors Gavin Kindig, Cole Dillard and Avery Sapp competed along with Senior 4-H members Levi McDaniel, Joel Owen, Aaron Doss and Nathan Nichols. Held at the Easton Newberry Sports Complex, 4-Hers competed in FITA (Federation of International Target Archery) which are the traditional ringed archery targets, eld which involves shooting in wooded, rough and rugged terrain at different distances and angels as well as 3-D which involves shooting at wildlife targets where hits are scored according to where it lands on the target. After a full day of competition with over 230 4-Hers from all over the state, Cole Dillard placed 10th in Junior Compound and Avery Sapp placed ninth in Junior Compound. Senior 4-H member Aaron Doss placed eighth in Compound. Levi McDaniel, who competed as a Florida National Archery Team Member last year, placed third in Recurve. The Florida 4-H state shotgun match was hugely successful for the Sure Shots 4-H Club who took away the majority of top placing at the competition. Following are their awards: Senior Team 1 Morgan Locke, Whit Pettis, Seth Pemberton, and John Michael Walsingham rst in skeet, second in trap, and rst Overall Team Senior Team 2 Tyler Daniels, Matt Fisher, Tyler Imke, and Colby Williams third in trap, and third in Skeet Intermediate Team 1 James Wesley Clark, Tripp Hodges, and Tyler Lee rst in skeet, rst in trap, and rst overall Jr. Team 2 Caleb Hutching, Dylan Rudd, and Kolton Cox third in trap Senior Skeet Individual awards rst Morgan Locke, second Whit Pettis, fth John Walsingham, sixth Tyler Daniels, seventh Tyler Imke, and eighth Seth Pemberton Senior Trap Individual awards fth Colby Williams, seventh Tyler Daniels, eighth Whit Pettis, ninth John Walsingham, and 10th Seth Pemberton Intermediates Individual Skeet awards rst James Wesley Clark and forth Tyler Lee Intermediates individual Trap awards third Tyler Lee, forth James Wesley Clark, fth Tripp Hodges, sixth Caleb Hutching and eighth Tripp Hodges Other Notable accomplishments Morgan Locke had a 25 straight in skeet, Highest overall Senior Whit Pettis, Highest overall Intermediate James Wesley Clark Three 4-Hers quali ed for the National Florida Shotgun Team match to be held this summer in Nebraska Whit Pettis, Seth Pemberton, and Tyler Daniels. Parents of the Sure Shots 4-H Club shared these remarks about the positive impacts of the 4-H Shooting Sports program: There are many personal qualities learned only through individual competition, and many valuable others, only through team competition. The 4-H Shooting Sports program is a unique opportunity that encompasses both aspects of competition, while developing con dence and camaraderie in our youth. This club has really helped its members with so many different individual aspects: self-control, composure, discipline, disappointment, team spirit, attitude and so much more. The pressure they feel mentally when they are competing is a big part of their performance. They have to learn how to deal with pressure while being the focus of a lot of people. I am so proud to see what an impact this has made on their lives and to know that the character development they are experiencing will last the rest of their lives and will help shape the adults they become. For more information on 4-H programs, contact Julie Pigott Dillard, 4-H Youth Development Agent, UF IFAS Washington County Extension, at 638-6180 or juliepd@u .edu. County 4-H competes at state shooting competition SPECIAL TO THE NEWS Special to the News Survivor Day at Orange Hill Express reminded attendees how they can survive off the land, a message emphasized by 2009 Survivor winner J.T. Thomas. Im really promoting agriculture, the home grown foods and natural resources we enjoy, said the CBS series star, plus the activities that will get kids interested in agriculture. Its an important message for area residents, where agriculture is a big driver for the economy. The free Saturday event featured home-grown produce and gardens, demonstrations including goat milking and cheese making, and plenty of chickens and rabbits. Thomas, who was brought in by Purina Mills and OHE, manages a black Angus herd in Mobile, Ala. when hes not advocating for agriculture. He was attending Troy and working when his mother strongly encouraged him to apply for the Survivor casting-call. I lled out my only application, and got picked, said Thomas, who still enjoys his agricultural roots. I wake-up every morning and have something to do, he said. It makes me feel good.

Due to the difference in the Western and Eastern liturgical calendars, the Eastern Orthodox churches began observing Lent on March 18, while Lent started on February 13 in most of the Western churches. As it turns out, the spring equinox is an extremely popular time for religious festivals. The same is true of the winter solstice, which falls near Christmas, Hanukkah and many other holidays. A solstice or equinox can frequently be connected with intense religious activity worldwide. Of the various spring holidays, Easter is one of the most widely observed. The Easter season is a time of mixed solemnity and joy, ranging from the penitential observances of Good Friday to the festive celebration of Easter Sunday. There are also, in some churches, additional services during Holy Week (the time between Palm Sunday and Easter). This includes Maundy Thursday and Easter Vigil (the Saturday before Easter Sunday). Maundy Thursday commemorates the Last Supper, as well as the institution of Holy Communion. It is marked in some churches by ritual foot washing. On Good Friday, Christians re ect upon the cruci xion. In some denominations, Easter Vigil is a time for bringing new converts into the congregation, and may also be observed by the lighting of a special re and/or a Paschal (Easter) candle. Not all Christian denominations observe Holy Week services, but for those that do, this is a very busy time indeed. I grew up in an area where certain churches refused to celebrate Easter and Christmas. They argued that these arent proper Christian holidays because of having been adapted from earlier non-Christian practices. So I became accustomed to different approaches to Easter, including the option of not celebrating it at all. At school, children from families that objected to Easter were often forbidden to have Easter candy. Kids were taught to respect that decision and not offer them holiday-related treats. Children, as well as adults, were expected to peacefully interact with those of different beliefs, traditions and opinions. As for my own childhood, I greatly enjoyed receiving Easter baskets. I also remember the thrill of hunting for Easter eggs. Major holidays, such as Easter, are a good time for adults to keep con icts to a minimum in order to avoid tarnishing childrens holiday memories. When it comes to Easter baskets, dont automatically assume that certain people are too old for them. Perhaps consider putting some ageappropriate goodies in baskets for teens or adults, but nearly anyone, from toddlers to senior citizens, can appreciate being remembered at Easter. Also, dont forget those with diabetes or other blood sugar issues. After all, they like Easter treats, too. Sugar-free candy is available nearly everywhere now. This is such an amazing time of year. With all the blooming owers, chirping birds, and a fresh springtime feeling in the air, its hard to be anything but happy on Easter. Everything inside us and even nature itself knows that its a time of celebration, renewal and joy.
