Koon, Director of the Division of Emergency Management. “A family disaster plan and a well-stocked di saster supply kit are essential tools to ensure your family’s safety and se curity during a hurricane.” In a major disaster, emergency workers may not be able to reach ev eryone right away, and in some cases it may take three or more days for help to arrive. Having a plan for this possibility will help residents take care of their family’s unique needs during this time. Building a disaster supply kit is a simple and effective way to make sure a family has enough water, food, medicine and other essential sup plies when other resources may not be readily available. Different families have different needs, so residents need to be sure to take into account their family’s spe cic needs, and include: • Water — at least 1 gallon daily per person for 3 to 7 days • Food — at least enough for 3 to 7 days • Blankets / Pillows, etc. • Clothing • First Aid Kit / Medicines • Special Items — for children and the elderly • Toiletries • Flashlight / Batteries • Radio — Battery operated and NOAA weather radio • Keys • Toys, Books, and Games • Important documents • Tools • Full vehicle fuel tanks • Pet care items It is vital that residents and visi tors stay informed of the latest infor mation during an approaching storm by monitoring a trusted local infor mation outlet, and knowing when to put your family disaster plan into action. The best way for residents to make their families and homes safer is to be prepared before a disaster happens. The Atlantic Hurricane Season runs from June 1 – November 30.

Superintendent Joe Taylor said DAG Architects Inc. had been the district’s contract architect on and off since the mid-1990s. “Miss (Sandra) Cook chose not to renew the con tract and we have been without one for three years,” Taylor said. Taylor said that the contract does not include a retainer for the architectural rm, but the company would be paid when they did work for the district based on an agreed upon scale. The contracted rm would be called in for projects costing up to $2 million. “The more complex the work, the more it costs,” Taylor said. Branton presented a rate sheet to the board for their consideration. “We have a standard rate sheet and we bill per employee based on their classication,” he said. School Board Attorney Jeff Goodman said he would have the contract ready for the board to approve at the June 10 meeting. “I’ll get with Rick and Mr. Taylor and have it ready for the next board meeting,” Goodman said.

By WES LOCHER 229-7843 |@PSJ_Star wlocher@star.com PORT ST. JOE — Attorneys for a Gulf County man cite Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law in a re quest to have a murder charge dismissed. The public defender for Wal ton Butler led a motion May 21 for the dismissal of criminal charges in the 2012 shooting death of Everett Gant. Butler is charged with one count of sec ond-degree murder with a re arm, evidencing prejudice based on race. Florida’s Stand Your Ground law justies the use of deadly force if someone believes force is neces sary to prevent death or harm to themselves or another. The defense motion states Butler feared re taliation for use of racial slurs and combined with the “aggressive behav ior” of Gant and the difference in size between the two men, But ler contends deadly force was his last resort and he is entitled to immunity from arrest and prosecution. A hearing for the motion is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. EDT July 11. No ofcial trial date is known. According to the orig inal arresting afdavit from former Gulf County Sheriff Joe Nugent, an incident occurred dur ing the afternoon of July 30 when a woman, along with a child, came to But ler’s apartment in the Pine Ridge Apartment complex on Garrison Avenue. Butler, who is white, used a racial slur to refer to the child, ofcials said. Investigators discovered But ler had been making similar ra cial slurs to other children in the complex in the days leading up to the incident. The woman became upset and left Butler’s apartment. Gant, who was black, went to Butler’s apartment to discuss the racial comments. Butler claims Gant came to the residence and attempted to enter through the sliding door in a “threatening and aggressive manner” while making threats of bodily harm. Butler shot Gant between the eyes with a .22 rie and shut his door, leaving Gant to bleed outside. Butler called 911, nished cooking supper, sat down and began eating, the arresting af davit details. Nugent arrived on the scene and contacted Butler by phone, at which time Butler told Nugent to come in, said he was eating dinner and had put up the gun. Nugent said Butler, who had been drinking, acted as if “in convenienced” when put under arrest, saying he could not un derstand the problem as “he had only shot a (racial slur).” Butler acknowledged shoot ing Gant, who died six weeks to the day after the shooting. Star News Editor Tim Croft contributed to this report. WALTON BUTLER Accused killer using Stand Your Ground law Community EVENTS P hoto HOTO S pecial PECIAL toTO theTHE N ews EWS Gov.

Faith EVENTS F AITH Why not ask ‘why?’ “Why?” is one of the world’s simplest — yet most profound — questions. It’s one of the rst things a child says upon learning to talk. The desire to ask questions has driven humanity to seek increased knowledge. Questioning is critical in every aspect of life. This single question — “Why?” — must be asked in every school, government, organization, workplace and religious institution. It’s important to ask questions of religious authorities, just as you would of anyone else. When somebody says something is true, you have the right to ask why. Responsible clergy members are glad to discuss your questions. If you pose a particularly dif cult question, they may need to research the matter further before getting back to you. That’s an honest response. I’ve been asking questions of religious personnel for decades, and occasionally receive “I don’t know” as an answer. Many clergy members, instead of being put off by questions, hope their congregants will care enough to pose thoughtful questions. If you’re a member of an organized religion, try re-examining it. In other words, adopt the perspective of a visitor who knows nothing about the faith. What does your group or denomination really teach? Why do those teachings appeal to you? What draws your attention? What part of the service moves you most? Is there anything you don’t understand? Ask questions at every turn. Ask why you believe what you believe. There’s a spiritual exercise involving the frequent use of our favorite question, “Why?” Let’s say that you’re in a church that uses creeds. Have you ever stopped after each sentence of that creed and asked “Why?” “We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.” Why? Do you honestly believe what you’re saying, or are you just giving it lip service? Sacred texts, hymn lyrics, creeds and other documents can be examined this way. “Why?” is a proper response to all assertions, including religious ones. Some people think questioning undermines belief, but it can actually strengthen one’s faith. It clears away spiritual dead weight. It sets aside ideas we no longer nd useful, allowing us to concentrate on concepts we do wish to embrace. It’s like getting dead branches off a tree. If something doesn’t work anymore, remove it. Some of the most spiritually aware people I’ve ever met became that way by asking questions. In fact, some of the most questioning people I’ve ever met are ordained minsters. The other day, I encountered a teenager who mentioned a Bible study course he’s taking. The instructor told the class that neither the Bible nor the church must ever be questioned because both are perfect. What a sad excuse for a teacher. This instructor clearly thinks the Bible is such a fragile document, the church such a frail institution, and God so weak that questioning will destroy them all. If someone ever tells you not to ask questions, that’s the precise moment you need to be asking a lot of them. Religious belief isn’t an excuse to hang up your brain. Take a moment and think of something you’ve always wondered about. Then ask that big question: “Why?” Do your best to discover the answer. Even if you can’t nd the answer easily, you’ll have embarked upon a journey of knowledge while trying to nd out. That all-important question — “Why?” — is the rst step toward progress and discovery. NONPROFIT OF THE WEEK: SECOND CHANCE OF NORTHWEST FLORIDA INC. Second Chance of Northwest Florida works with adults who are coping with brain injuries. The organization was founded by Dr. Clell Warriner, who felt that brain injury survivors need a safe environment for not only relearning lost skills, but socializing.

of Washington County Washington County Business Volume 6, Number 5 Washington County, Florida June-July 2013 WE BELIEVE IN WASHINGTON COUNTY! Planning Commission focuses on land use map, development code and RESTORE Act projects Mike DeRuntz Washington County Senior Planner Over the past few years the Washington County Planning Commission has been studying the Comprehensive Plan to see if it has been followed and to include the various regulations passed down from Growth Management Legislation by the state of Florida. e Comprehensive Plan is the Countys guide for development over the next 10 years. A series of community Visioning meetings were held between 2009 and 2010. During these meetings the following issues were discussed: transportation, aordable housing, urban sprawl, economic development, urban services, protection of open spaces, natural springs and resources, land use, review of the Comprehensive Plan and Land Development Code, and public school facilities. From these meetings, amendments to the Comprehensive Plan were prepared and adopted by the Board of County Commissioners. e Florida Department of Community Aairs approved the amendments and an Evaluation and Appraisal Report (EAR) for Washington County. In 2012 the Planning Commission conducted a series of public information meetings throughout the County to allow county residents input into existing discrepancies or proposed changes with the Future Land Use Map (FLUM). is map provides the direction where and what type of development can occur in the county. From the information received at these meetings, the Planning Commission is proposing amending the FLUM to update the map to correct errors and omissions to the existing FLUM. During this administrative process, a list of over 900 parcels of property were identied for correction. ese properties consisted of state, county, municipal, school district-owned properties, and small and large scale amendments, as well as boundary discrepancies with the Sunny Hills Mixed Use Development. Besides these amendments, the Planning Commission will be evaluating proposed amendments from private property owners and recommendation for additional commercial and industrial areas. e Planning Commission will be reviewing these recommended amendments to the FLUM at a joint Workshop with the Board of County Commissioners on Wednesday, June 19 at 9 a.m. at the County Annex. Land Development Code e Planning Commission will be reviewing amendments to the Land Development Code over the next couple of months. e Land Development Code is the regulations adopted by the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) to implement the guidelines provided by the Countys Comprehensive Plan e BOCC will review these recommended amendments at a Joint Workshop on Wednesday, Aug. 14 at 9 a.m. at the County Annex. e County will schedule a series of Public Hearing at each of the municipalities, as well as with the Planning Commission and nally with the BOCC. Any amendments that are approved will be sent to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity for their review for consistency with State Growth Management Statutes. RESTORE Act e RESTORE Act established a Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council which is comprised of governors from the ve aected Gulf Jim Brook See RESTORE ACT page 7 Mike DeRuntz, Senior Planner, presents RESTORE information to BOCC.

PROVIDES A BUSINESS INVESTMENT Tax Deductible Chamber Investments EDC Investments and Opportunities to be involved in Economic Development Eorts in Washington County It has been a busy time at the Chamber these last several months. One reason is the May launch of the 2013 membership drive, Together We Succeed It has just ended with better than expected results. Many thanks to the Chamber Board and the Ambassadors for all their hard work. ere are two things I really do want to touch on in this article. e rst is a site certication program that has been introduced by Gulf Power to the local counties. Simply put, an industrial or distribution site that has been certied means that a thorough analysis has been done by the best site consultants in the country. rough this analysis, the site owner, public or private, has had the site vetted and all of the outstanding issues addressed. It does not mean that the site is shovel ready, although in most cases the site is, but that a plan has been laid out and agreed to by all parties on how to get all utilities onto the site. South Carolina alone has over 20 certied sites to show manufacturing entities looking to expand or locate. ere is only one certied site in Florida and that is Cecil Field in Jacksonville. Are you beginning to see what Florida must do to make strides against our neighbors? Because of the lack of certied sites, Gulf Power is willing to help defray some of the cost for the certication program. is step is an important one to help rural and other counties begin the process of identifying and removing obstacles on industrial sites that should and can be more eectively marketed. It is a lengthy process but one that I think has a lot of merit and hopefully, will create more certied sites thus insuring we get a fair look by companies that are looking for a home in Florida. Secondly, in this past Legislative session Rep. Marti Coley, was able to nd sponsors for several bills that will help our county. First, Rep. Coley took it upon herself to help with Enterprise Zone expansion. I had many conversations with her about this and convinced her that this would not only be good for Washington County but all rural counties that have Enterprise Zones. If signed by the Governor, Washington County will have three to ve square miles of Enterprise Zones in addition to what we have already. e Enterprise Zone, gives extra incentives to businesses that create new, full-time jobs within that area. Rep. Coley was also instrumental in having a new bill passed that will help limit liability to those that are involved in Agritourism. is will have a signicant impact on farmers who are opening or thinking about opening their farms to the public such as strawberry farms. Purchasing insurance for this type of activity has been expensive and cumbersome; this will help greatly and for that and all the other issues Rep. Coley has taken up on our behalf, we say thank you. Rep. Coley shares her view on this session on page 4 of this Advocate. Its great to see things humming along at the Chamber, where helping local businesses stay strong is job one. One way to do so is with Chamber Perks, which allows small businesses a way to see signicant savings in areas such as shipping and group health insurance. e reality is many small businesses cant benet from the economies of scale achieved by larger organizations, but as a member of the Washington County Chamber of Commerce small businesses and their employees can have access to discounts and savings that otherwise would be cost prohibitive. Read more about this great value for Chamber members on page 3 of the Advocate. Washington County will also benet from recent legislation that expands the Enterprise Zone. is legislation, pursued by Chamber Executive Director Ted Everett and championed by State Rep. Marti Coley, provides tax incentives to local businesses which create new jobs as part of an expansion. It not only helps our county, but other Rural Areas of Critical Economic Concern (RACEC) in the state. Read more about it in the Executive Directors Message below, as well as the article by Coley on page 4. In short, this Chamber supports the local business development and growth. As a member, you have a role in helping other local businesses and our county -thrive. Be engaged in local government and municipal activities that aect local businesses. Share your experiences as well as the issues that impact your individual business. In the end youll nd that together we succeed for the benet of all business in Washington County.

Coley gives update on recent Legislative session I am excited to inform every one about some of the most meaningful legislation passed this session. As always, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns please contact me at: marti.coley@ myorida house.gov. Progress Made in Education As an educator, I feel educa tion is an essential investment for our state. e 2013-2014 state bud get is highlighted by an increase of $1.5 billion in new K-12 education funding, which will enable school districts to award pay raises for teachers. Addition ally, we made transformational changes to our educational system. is year we created multiple pathways to a standardized diploma. In such a diverse state the Legislature real ized that a one-size-ts-all approach to education was leaving gaps. e creation of these multiple pathways allows students with dierent strengths as well as ambitions to focus on curriculum that will al low them to follow a path to success. Students will now have the opportunity to earn credit in math and science by taking classes that can lead to industry-approved credentials. By expanding career-based training in Floridas public schools, we will better serve students who wish to enter directly into the workforce fol lowing completion of high school. e previous requirement for all students to pass Algebra II as been removed on two of the tracks. Students choosing to receive a standard diploma, or a standard diploma with a merit designation, will not be required to pass Algebra II to graduate. Only those students seeking a scholar designation must do so. e various tracks allow freedom for students to transition from one to an other. ese new pathways are designed to keep students engaged in their studies as well as provide them with technical training for high-demand jobs. I was pleased to advocate for these new standards, and truly believe this is some of the most signicant education legislation we have passed. House Memorial 545: A message to Protect Gun Rights e Florida House of Representative adopted House Memorial 545, urging Congress and the President to uphold their duty to protect the constitutional right of the people to keep and bear arms. I co-sponsored this memorial to express my opposition to any eorts by the federal government to infringe upon Floridians second amendment right and its intent to lawfully use all of its authority to resist or overturn any federal measure that violates that right. Copies of this memorial have been dispatched to the President of the United States, to the President of the United States Senate, to the Speaker of the United States House of Repre sentatives and to each member of the Florida delegation to the United States Congress. Business Friendly Legislation Passes This Session e Florida Legislature passed legislation to increase accountability and transparency for the economic de velopment incentives provided to busi nesses. is legislation also reduces the tax burden of existing manufacturers to boost prospective capital investment and hopefully create new job oppor tunities.

In Florida, the 23 Gulf coastal counties have access to two categories, 35 percent directly to the counties, and 30 percent to a consortium of counties. A third category provides that 30 percent of the funds be used for projects of Gulf-wide signicance, and will be allocated according to a Comprehensive Plan developed by the Council. Gov. Scott represents Florida on the Council, and has asked the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to propose restoration projects to the Council for inclusion in the Comprehensive Plan. Washington County has not been identied as either a disproportionately or nondisproportionately aected county, but because it is within 25 miles of the Gulf of Mexico, it would qualify to be able to apply for funding through the RESTORE Act program. Washington County BOCC has appointed a Stakeholders Committee for the county. is is an important step in implementing a local Recovery Planning eort through the RESTORE Act Grant Funding program. e Committee has met twice to review resource materials and proposed recommendations for thirteen projects for submittal to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. e Committee will be holding a community meeting in July to inform the citizens of Washington County about the RESTORE Act program, review the proposed projects and to solicit recommendations for projects for consideration. e meeting date has not been scheduled, but will be advertised both in the local paper and on the Planning Department webpage http://www.washington.com/planning/ plan%20dept.htm.

One revi sion is to the TDCs concept of the day trip program, changing it from a tour operator run business to a self-driving tour promotion. With the economy driving vacationers to seek less expensive options, the Jack son County and Washington County TDCs felt they would get better results oering day trip alternatives to va cationing families. ese alternatives would have low cost or free admissions and would be able to be enjoyed on a single tank of gas. A new rack card will be created and distributed to all the surrounding military bases, Welcome Centers and resorts on Panama City Beach oering these trips. One of the new projects discussed was geocaching, a type of treasure hunt for adults using GPS devices or a smartphone. e Washington County TDC has decided to join the ranks of other TDCs in the tri-state area by creating a geocaching trail throughout Washington County. is trail would focus on the natural beauty and his tory of the area to educate tourists on all that is unique about our county. A geocoin will be oered to tourists that complete a specied number of sites within the county as a prize. Another new project the Tourist De velopment Council has made plans for is to create a Visitors Guide that would be used to promote tourist opportuni ties and oer general information on the entire county. is guide would be available at all travel shows and promo tional opportunities that the TDC is involved in, as well as being sent to any person inquiring about information on the county and handed out at the Chamber of Commerce. Lastly, the TDC will also be further developing its brand by creating a new logo and updating its website. Also, new niche markets that t what there is to oer in Washington County, such as canoe/kayakers, will become a part of the new marketing plan going into the next scal year. e Washington County TDC is funded solely from bed tax dollars collected on overnight stays in the area hotels/motels, RV parks, campgrounds and other forms of transient housing. is is a special purpose tax to be used only for tourist development for Wash ington County.

Additionally, the Florida Enterprise Zone Act has been revised to allow for any enterprise zone that is at least 15 square miles and less than 20 square miles and includes a portion of the state designated as a rural area of criti cal economic concern to expand the boundary of the enterprise zone up to three miles. is change is critical for my district. Campaign Finance and Ethics Reform House Bill 569 is a multipurpose campaign nance bill that eliminates Committees of Continuous Existence through a de-certication process on September 30, 2013, increases the frequency of campaign nance report ing for candidates, political committees and electioneering communications organizations, and prohibits candidates who switch races from doubledipping contributors for maximum contributions in both races. e bill modies the current $500 per elec tion individual contribution limit for candidates as follows: $3,000 for state wide and Supreme Court candidates and $1,000 for other candidates. e bill also subjects individuals seeking a publicly-elected position on a political party executive committee to a new reporting requirement. Senate Bill 2 places elected ocials nancial disclosures online, provides the Commission on Ethics more author ity including the ability to garnish the public and private salaries of ocials who fail to pay nes for ethics and elections violations, requires state of cers to abstain from voting on matters that benet them directly, requires eth ics training for constitutional ocers, places greater restrictions on public employment while in oce, and pro hibits ocials from accepting gifts from political committees. e bill allows public ocials to place assets in a blind trust to help avoid potential conicts of interest and allows the use of certied public ac countants or attorneys when preparing nancial disclosures. e bill provides for the ling of ethics complaints all the way up to the day of an election, currently prohibited within the 5 days preceding an election, but requires that complaints led within 30 days of an election be based on actual knowledge of a violation not hearsay to stop the ling of frivolous politically motivated complaints. Ad ditionally, the bill bars legislators from lobbying the executive and legislative branches after leaving oce for two years. SB 4 provides the same safe guards for new provisions allowing the Ethics Commission to initiate inves tigations based on referrals from the Governor, Department of Law Enforce ment, and the state and U.S. Attorneys that already exist for investigations based on a complaint. Currently, the Commission can only act on a complaint led by a citizen. ese changes have been signed into law by Governor Scott and will now be put in place. State Employees Receive a Raise Because of the tough decisions we have made over the last several years, Floridas economy is nally on an upward trend, and the legislature nally had additional revenues to access dur ing the budget process. As a result, the Florida Legislature included raises for state employees in the states budget. State employees with annual salaries less than $40,000 will receive a $1,400 across-the-board increase. ose who earn more than $40,000 annually will receive a 1,000 dollar raise. Further more, approximately 35 percent of state workers could get merit bonuses of up to $600. I am so pleased with this raise not a bonus, which was extremely impor tant for state employees. Pay raises for our dedicated state employees will have a tremendous impact on District 5 since it is home to so many of our state employees. LEGISLATIVE from page 4

We encourage every Floridian to be proactive in preparing their family for potential hurricanes, said Bryan W. Koon, Director of the Division of Emergency Management. A family disaster plan and a well-stocked disaster supply kit are essential tools to ensure your familys safety and security during a hurricane. In a major disaster, emergency workers may not be able to reach everyone right away, and in some cases it may take three or more days for help to arrive. Having a plan for this possibility will help residents take care of their familys unique needs during this time. Building a disaster supply kit is a simple and effective way to make sure a family has enough water, food, medicine and other essential supplies when other resources may not be readily available. Different families have different needs, so residents need to be sure to take into account their familys specic needs, and include: Water at least 1 gallon daily per person for 3 to 7 days Food at least enough for 3 to 7 days Blankets / Pillows, etc. Clothing First Aid Kit / Medicines Special Items for children and the elderly Toiletries Flashlight / Batteries Radio Battery operated and NOAA weather radio Keys Toys, Books, and Games Important documents Tools Full vehicle fuel tanks Pet care items It is vital that residents and visitors stay informed of the latest information during an approaching storm by monitoring a trusted local information outlet, and knowing when to put your family disaster plan into action. The best way for residents to make their families and homes safer is to be prepared before a disaster happens. The Atlantic Hurricane Season runs from June 1 November 30.

Hatch Mott MacDonald is an award-winning, full service consulting engineering rm that offers clients multidisciplinary expertise and comprehensive capabilities in planning, project development, studies and analysis, design, procurement, construction engineering and inspection, project, program and construction management, and facility maintenance and operations, according to hatchmott.com. The company has ofces across the U.S. and has regional ofces in Panama City, Pensacola, Tallahassee as well as the Chipley ofce. Hatch Mott MacDonald is a North American company which has earned a reputation for technical excellence, innovation, and client responsiveness on some of the most prominent and challenging projects, according to the website. Hatch Mott MacDonald is currently ranked as the 36th largest design rm in the United States, with yet higher rankings in selected market sectors, such as transportation and pipelines. This is another tough choice, at the end of the day we would be well served by any of the three rms, said Board Chairman Terry Ellis. What sticks out to me is the chance of having someone local, said Board Member Milton Brown. Superintendent Joe Taylor said DAG Architects Inc. had been the districts contract architect on and off since the mid-1990s. Miss (Sandra) Cook chose not to renew the contract and we have been without one for three years, Taylor said. Taylor said that the contract does not include a retainer for the architectural rm, but the company would be paid when they did work for the district based on an agreed upon scale. The contracted rm would be called in for projects costing up to $2 million. The more complex the work, the more it costs, Taylor said. Branton presented a rate sheet to the board for their consideration. We have a standard rate sheet and we bill per employee based on their classication, he said. School Board Attorney Jeff Goodman said he would have the contract ready for the board to approve at the June 10 meeting.

JOE Attorneys for a Gulf County man cite Floridas Stand Your Ground law in a request to have a murder charge dismissed. The public defender for Walton Butler led a motion May 21 for the dismissal of criminal charges in the 2012 shooting death of Everett Gant. Butler is charged with one count of second-degree murder with a rearm, evidencing prejudice based on race. Floridas Stand Your Ground law justies the use of deadly force if someone believes force is necessary to prevent death or harm to themselves or another. The defense motion states Butler feared retaliation for use of racial slurs and combined with the aggressive behavior of Gant and the difference in size between the two men, Butler contends deadly force was his last resort and he is entitled to immunity from arrest and prosecution. A hearing for the motion is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. EDT July 11. No ofcial trial date is known. According to the original arresting afdavit from former Gulf County Sheriff Joe Nugent, an incident occurred during the afternoon of July 30 when a woman, along with a child, came to Butlers apartment in the Pine Ridge Apartment complex on Garrison Avenue. Butler, who is white, used a racial slur to refer to the child, ofcials said. Investigators discovered Butler had been making similar racial slurs to other children in the complex in the days leading up to the incident. The woman became upset and left Butlers apartment. Gant, who was black, went to Butlers apartment to discuss the racial comments. Butler claims Gant came to the residence and attempted to enter through the sliding door in a threatening and aggressive manner while making threats of bodily harm. Butler shot Gant between the eyes with a .22 rie and shut his door, leaving Gant to bleed outside. Butler called 911, nished cooking supper, sat down and began eating, the arresting afdavit details. Nugent arrived on the scene and contacted Butler by phone, at which time Butler told Nugent to come in, said he was eating dinner and had put up the gun. Nugent said Butler, who had been drinking, acted as if inconvenienced when put under arrest, saying he could not understand the problem as he had only shot a (racial slur). Butler acknowledged shooting Gant, who died six weeks to the day after the shooting. Star News Editor Tim Croft contributed to this report.

Faith EVENTS FAITHWhy not ask why?Why? is one of the worlds simplest yet most profound questions. Its one of the rst things a child says upon learning to talk. The desire to ask questions has driven humanity to seek increased knowledge. Questioning is critical in every aspect of life. This single question Why? must be asked in every school, government, organization, workplace and religious institution. Its important to ask questions of religious authorities, just as you would of anyone else. When somebody says something is true, you have the right to ask why. Responsible clergy members are glad to discuss your questions. If you pose a particularly dif cult question, they may need to research the matter further before getting back to you. Thats an honest response. Ive been asking questions of religious personnel for decades, and occasionally receive I dont know as an answer. Many clergy members, instead of being put off by questions, hope their congregants will care enough to pose thoughtful questions. If youre a member of an organized religion, try re-examining it. In other words, adopt the perspective of a visitor who knows nothing about the faith. What does your group or denomination really teach? Why do those teachings appeal to you? What draws your attention? What part of the service moves you most? Is there anything you dont understand? Ask questions at every turn. Ask why you believe what you believe. Theres a spiritual exercise involving the frequent use of our favorite question, Why? Lets say that youre in a church that uses creeds. Have you ever stopped after each sentence of that creed and asked Why? We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen. Why? Do you honestly believe what youre saying, or are you just giving it lip service? Sacred texts, hymn lyrics, creeds and other documents can be examined this way. Why? is a proper response to all assertions, including religious ones. Some people think questioning undermines belief, but it can actually strengthen ones faith. It clears away spiritual dead weight. It sets aside ideas we no longer nd useful, allowing us to concentrate on concepts we do wish to embrace. Its like getting dead branches off a tree. If something doesnt work anymore, remove it. Some of the most spiritually aware people Ive ever met became that way by asking questions. In fact, some of the most questioning people Ive ever met are ordained minsters. The other day, I encountered a teenager who mentioned a Bible study course hes taking. The instructor told the class that neither the Bible nor the church must ever be questioned because both are perfect. What a sad excuse for a teacher. This instructor clearly thinks the Bible is such a fragile document, the church such a frail institution, and God so weak that questioning will destroy them all. If someone ever tells you not to ask questions, thats the precise moment you need to be asking a lot of them. Religious belief isnt an excuse to hang up your brain. Take a moment and think of something youve always wondered about. Then ask that big question: Why? Do your best to discover the answer. Even if you cant nd the answer easily, youll have embarked upon a journey of knowledge while trying to nd out. That all-important question Why? is the rst step toward progress and discovery.

of Washington County Washington County Business Volume 6, Number 5 Washington County, Florida June-July 2013 WE BELIEVE IN WASHINGTON COUNTY! Planning Commission focuses on land use map, development code and RESTORE Act projectsMike DeRuntzen Washington County Senior PlannerOver the past few years the Washington County Planning Commission has been studying the Comprehensive Plan to see if it has been followed and to include the various regulations passed down from Growth Management Legislation by the state of Florida. e Comprehensive Plan is the Countys guide for development over the next 10 years. A series of community Visioning meetings were held between 2009 and 2010. During these meetings the following issues were discussed: transportation, aordable housing, urban sprawl, economic development, urban services, protection of open spaces, natural springs and resources, land use, review of the Comprehensive Plan and Land Development Code, and public school facilities. From these meetings, amendments to the Comprehensive Plan were prepared and adopted by the Board of County Commissioners. e Florida Department of Community Aairs approved the amendments and an Evaluation and Appraisal Report (EAR) for Washington County. In 2012 the Planning Commission conducted a series of public information meetings throughout the County to allow county residents input into existing discrepancies or proposed changes with the Future Land Use Map (FLUM). is map provides the direction where and what type of development can occur in the county. From the information received at these meetings, the Planning Commission is proposing amending the FLUM to update the map to correct errors and omissions to the existing FLUM. During this administrative process, a list of over 900 parcels of property were identied for correction. ese properties consisted of state, county, municipal, school district-owned properties, and small and large scale amendments, as well as boundary discrepancies with the Sunny Hills Mixed Use Development. Besides these amendments, the Planning Commission will be evaluating proposed amendments from private property owners and recommendation for additional commercial and industrial areas. e Planning Commission will be reviewing these recommended amendments to the FLUM at a joint Workshop with the Board of County Commissioners on Wednesday, June 19 at 9 a.m. at the County Annex. Land Development Code e Planning Commission will be reviewing amendments to the Land Development Code over the next couple of months. e Land Development Code is the regulations adopted by the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) to implement the guidelines provided by the Countys Comprehensive Plan e BOCC will review these recommended amendments at a Joint Workshop on Wednesday, Aug. 14 at 9 a.m. at the County Annex. e County will schedule a series of Public Hearing at each of the municipalities, as well as with the Planning Commission and nally with the BOCC. Any amendments that are approved will be sent to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity for their review for consistency with State Growth Management Statutes. RESTORE Act e RESTORE Act established a Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council which is comprised of governors from the ve aected Gulf Jim BrookSee RESTORE ACT page 7 Mike DeRuntz, Senior Planner, presents RESTORE information to BOCC.

PROVIDES A BUSINESS INVESTMENT Tax Deductible Chamber Investments EDC Investments and Opportunities to be involved in Economic Development Eorts in Washington CountyIt has been a busy time at the Chamber these last several months. One reason is the May launch of the 2013 membership drive, Together We Succeed. It has just ended with better than expected results. Many thanks to the Chamber Board and the Ambassadors for all their hard work. ere are two things I really do want to touch on in this article. e rst is a site certication program that has been introduced by Gulf Power to the local counties. Simply put, an industrial or distribution site that has been certied means that a thorough analysis has been done by the best site consultants in the country. rough this analysis, the site owner, public or private, has had the site vetted and all of the outstanding issues addressed. It does not mean that the site is shovel ready, although in most cases the site is, but that a plan has been laid out and agreed to by all parties on how to get all utilities onto the site. South Carolina alone has over 20 certied sites to show manufacturing entities looking to expand or locate. ere is only one certied site in Florida and that is Cecil Field in Jacksonville. Are you beginning to see what Florida must do to make strides against our neighbors? Because of the lack of certied sites, Gulf Power is willing to help defray some of the cost for the certication program. is step is an important one to help rural and other counties begin the process of identifying and removing obstacles on industrial sites that should and can be more eectively marketed. It is a lengthy process but one that I think has a lot of merit and hopefully, will create more certied sites thus insuring we get a fair look by companies that are looking for a home in Florida. Secondly, in this past Legislative session Rep. Marti Coley, was able to nd sponsors for several bills that will help our county. First, Rep. Coley took it upon herself to help with Enterprise Zone expansion. I had many conversations with her about this and convinced her that this would not only be good for Washington County but all rural counties that have Enterprise Zones. If signed by the Governor, Washington County will have three to ve square miles of Enterprise Zones in addition to what we have already. e Enterprise Zone, gives extra incentives to businesses that create new, full-time jobs within that area. Rep. Coley was also instrumental in having a new bill passed that will help limit liability to those that are involved in Agritourism. is will have a signicant impact on farmers who are opening or thinking about opening their farms to the public such as strawberry farms. Purchasing insurance for this type of activity has been expensive and cumbersome; this will help greatly and for that and all the other issues Rep. Coley has taken up on our behalf, we say thank you. Rep. Coley shares her view on this session on page 4 of this Advocate. Its great to see things humming along at the Chamber, where helping local businesses stay strong is job one. One way to do so is with Chamber Perks, which allows small businesses a way to see signicant savings in areas such as shipping and group health insurance. e reality is many small businesses cant benet from the economies of scale achieved by larger organizations, but as a member of the Washington County Chamber of Commerce small businesses and their employees can have access to discounts and savings that otherwise would be cost prohibitive. Read more about this great value for Chamber members on page 3 of the Advocate. Washington County will also benet from recent legislation that expands the Enterprise Zone. is legislation, pursued by Chamber Executive Director Ted Everett and championed by State Rep. Marti Coley, provides tax incentives to local businesses which create new jobs as part of an expansion. It not only helps our county, but other Rural Areas of Critical Economic Concern (RACEC) in the state. Read more about it in the Executive Directors Message below, as well as the article by Coley on page 4. In short, this Chamber supports the local business development and growth. As a member, you have a role in helping other local businesses and our county -thrive. Be engaged in local government and municipal activities that aect local businesses. Share your experiences as well as the issues that impact your individual business. In the end youll nd that together we succeed for the benet of all business in Washington County.

Coley gives update on recent Legislative session I am excited to inform everyone about some of the most meaningful legislation passed this session. As always, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns please contact me at: marti.coley@ myoridahouse.gov. Progress Made in Education As an educator, I feel education is an essential investment for our state. e 2013-2014 state budget is highlighted by an increase of $1.5 billion in new K-12 education funding, which will enable school districts to award pay raises for teachers. Additionally, we made transformational changes to our educational system. is year we created multiple pathways to a standardized diploma. In such a diverse state the Legislature realized that a one-size-ts-all approach to education was leaving gaps. e creation of these multiple pathways allows students with dierent strengths as well as ambitions to focus on curriculum that will allow them to follow a path to success. Students will now have the opportunity to earn credit in math and science by taking classes that can lead to industry-approved credentials. By expanding career-based training in Floridas public schools, we will better serve students who wish to enter directly into the workforce following completion of high school. e previous requirement for all students to pass Algebra II as been removed on two of the tracks. Students choosing to receive a standard diploma, or a standard diploma with a merit designation, will not be required to pass Algebra II to graduate. Only those students seeking a scholar designation must do so. e various tracks allow freedom for students to transition from one to another. ese new pathways are designed to keep students engaged in their studies as well as provide them with technical training for high-demand jobs. I was pleased to advocate for these new standards, and truly believe this is some of the most signicant education legislation we have passed. House Memorial 545: A message to Protect Gun Rights e Florida House of Representative adopted House Memorial 545, urging Congress and the President to uphold their duty to protect the constitutional right of the people to keep and bear arms. I co-sponsored this memorial to express my opposition to any eorts by the federal government to infringe upon Floridians second amendment right and its intent to lawfully use all of its authority to resist or overturn any federal measure that violates that right. Copies of this memorial have been dispatched to the President of the United States, to the President of the United States Senate, to the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives and to each member of the Florida delegation to the United States Congress. Business Friendly Legislation Passes This Session e Florida Legislature passed legislation to increase accountability and transparency for the economic development incentives provided to businesses. is legislation also reduces the tax burden of existing manufacturers to boost prospective capital investment and hopefully create new job opportunities.

CommunitySouth.net RESTORE ACT from page 1 states, the secretaries from the U.S. Departments of the Interior, Commerce, Agriculture, and Homeland Security as well as the Secretary of the Army and the Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. e Gulf States recommended and President Obama appointed the Secretary of Commerce as the Councils chair. e RESTORE Act dedicates 80 percent of all administrative and civil penalties related to the Deepwater Horizon spill to a Gulf Coast Restoration Trust Fund and outlines a structure by which the funds can be utilized to restore and protect the natural resources, ecosystems, sheries, marine and wildlife habitats, beaches, coastal wetlands, and economy of the Gulf Coast region. In Florida, the 23 Gulf coastal counties have access to two categories, 35 percent directly to the counties, and 30 percent to a consortium of counties. A third category provides that 30 percent of the funds be used for projects of Gulf-wide signicance, and will be allocated according to a Comprehensive Plan developed by the Council. Gov. Scott represents Florida on the Council, and has asked the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to propose restoration projects to the Council for inclusion in the Comprehensive Plan. Washington County has not been identied as either a disproportionately or nondisproportionately aected county, but because it is within 25 miles of the Gulf of Mexico, it would qualify to be able to apply for funding through the RESTORE Act program. Washington County BOCC has appointed a Stakeholders Committee for the county. is is an important step in implementing a local Recovery Planning eort through the RESTORE Act Grant Funding program. e Committee has met twice to review resource materials and proposed recommendations for thirteen projects for submittal to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. e Committee will be holding a community meeting in July to inform the citizens of Washington County about the RESTORE Act program, review the proposed projects and to solicit recommendations for projects for consideration. e meeting date has not been scheduled, but will be advertised both in the local paper and on the Planning Department webpage http://www.washington.com/planning/ plan%20dept.htm.

One revision is to the TDCs concept of the day trip program, changing it from a tour operator run business to a self-driving tour promotion. With the economy driving vacationers to seek less expensive options, the Jackson County and Washington County TDCs felt they would get better results oering day trip alternatives to vacationing families. ese alternatives would have low cost or free admissions and would be able to be enjoyed on a single tank of gas. A new rack card will be created and distributed to all the surrounding military bases, Welcome Centers and resorts on Panama City Beach oering these trips. One of the new projects discussed was geocaching, a type of treasure hunt for adults using GPS devices or a smartphone. e Washington County TDC has decided to join the ranks of other TDCs in the tri-state area by creating a geocaching trail throughout Washington County. is trail would focus on the natural beauty and history of the area to educate tourists on all that is unique about our county. A geocoin will be oered to tourists that complete a specied number of sites within the county as a prize. Another new project the Tourist Development Council has made plans for is to create a Visitors Guide that would be used to promote tourist opportunities and oer general information on the entire county. is guide would be available at all travel shows and promotional opportunities that the TDC is involved in, as well as being sent to any person inquiring about information on the county and handed out at the Chamber of Commerce. Lastly, the TDC will also be further developing its brand by creating a new logo and updating its website. Also, new niche markets that t what there is to oer in Washington County, such as canoe/kayakers, will become a part of the new marketing plan going into the next scal year. e Washington County TDC is funded solely from bed tax dollars collected on overnight stays in the area hotels/motels, RV parks, campgrounds and other forms of transient housing. is is a special purpose tax to be used only for tourist development for Washington County.

Additionally, the Florida Enterprise Zone Act has been revised to allow for any enterprise zone that is at least 15 square miles and less than 20 square miles and includes a portion of the state designated as a rural area of critical economic concern to expand the boundary of the enterprise zone up to three miles. is change is critical for my district. Campaign Finance and Ethics Reform House Bill 569 is a multipurpose campaign nance bill that eliminates Committees of Continuous Existence through a de-certication process on September 30, 2013, increases the frequency of campaign nance reporting for candidates, political committees and electioneering communications organizations, and prohibits candidates who switch races from doubledipping contributors for maximum contributions in both races. e bill modies the current $500 per election individual contribution limit for candidates as follows: $3,000 for statewide and Supreme Court candidates and $1,000 for other candidates. e bill also subjects individuals seeking a publicly-elected position on a political party executive committee to a new reporting requirement. Senate Bill 2 places elected ocials nancial disclosures online, provides the Commission on Ethics more authority including the ability to garnish the public and private salaries of ocials who fail to pay nes for ethics and elections violations, requires state ofcers to abstain from voting on matters that benet them directly, requires ethics training for constitutional ocers, places greater restrictions on public employment while in oce, and prohibits ocials from accepting gifts from political committees. e bill allows public ocials to place assets in a blind trust to help avoid potential conicts of interest and allows the use of certied public accountants or attorneys when preparing nancial disclosures. e bill provides for the ling of ethics complaints all the way up to the day of an election, currently prohibited within the 5 days preceding an election, but requires that complaints led within 30 days of an election be based on actual knowledge of a violation not hearsay to stop the ling of frivolous politically motivated complaints. Additionally, the bill bars legislators from lobbying the executive and legislative branches after leaving oce for two years. SB 4 provides the same safeguards for new provisions allowing the Ethics Commission to initiate investigations based on referrals from the Governor, Department of Law Enforcement, and the state and U.S. Attorneys that already exist for investigations based on a complaint. Currently, the Commission can only act on a complaint led by a citizen. ese changes have been signed into law by Governor Scott and will now be put in place. State Employees Receive a Raise Because of the tough decisions we have made over the last several years, Floridas economy is nally on an upward trend, and the legislature nally had additional revenues to access during the budget process. As a result, the Florida Legislature included raises for state employees in the states budget. State employees with annual salaries less than $40,000 will receive a $1,400 across-the-board increase. ose who earn more than $40,000 annually will receive a 1,000 dollar raise. Furthermore, approximately 35 percent of state workers could get merit bonuses of up to $600. I am so pleased with this raise not a bonus, which was extremely important for state employees. Pay raises for our dedicated state employees will have a tremendous impact on District 5 since it is home to so many of our state employees. LEGISLATIVE from page 4
