Theres a lot of things that the Florida Chamber of Commerce does that directly effects you, said Washington County Chamber of Commerce Director Ted Everett. You may not see it but these guys are ghting the battles in the halls of Tallahassee and, of course, your chamber is ghting them in the halls of Washington County. Blose opened by saying that many of the topics that he would be discussing during the meeting would be considered controversial. Its funny because as I was walking around this building this morning it was interesting because I saw this plaque that was out front dedicated to some of the people who helped build this facility and it said thank you to these three gentlemen for making the unpopular but correct decision to build this facility, said Blose, referring to the Specialty Center at Northwest Florida Community Hospital. I thought that was interesting because a lot of what we do is controversial or maybe unpopular but that doesnt mean that isnt whats right for Floridians or we shouldnt take action on certain things because of it being an unpopular decision. Blose said that there are a lot of changes coming to the state of Florida, not only demographically but population wise. The New York Times had an article a week or two ago that was a big deal because they were saying well, were going to have Florida pass us as the third most popular state because New York is currently third and Florida is fourth and theyre trying to gure out why people are moving to Florida and why New York is being left behind, he said. Of course, we in Florida know low taxes, nice weather and friendly businesses is a large part of the reason. It was no surprise to those who live in Florida, Blose said, because the population of Florida continually grew in the housing boom and it was a subject of the local news often. After The Recession began it kind of tapered off, but there is going to be six million new residents moving to the state of Florida by the year 2030, he said. A lot of what we do at the Florida Chamber of Commerce Suspect caught on camera and arrested Staff Reports SANTA ROSA BEACH Walton County Sheriffs Of ce reports the arrest of Lisa Marie Aldrich, 31, of Vernon, for burglary to a dwelling and larceny grand theft on Wednesday, Jan. 15. According to the report Aldrich broke into her ex-husbands residence located in Santa Rosa Beach and stole a shotgun, a socket set and some clothes. After the victim discovered the burglary, he reviewed his video surveillance cameras at his house and confronted the suspect by phone telling her to bring the items back. The suspect brought the shotgun, socket set and some of the clothes back and left them near the victims residence, according to the report. Thursday, Jan. 16, Aldrich admitted during an interview that she did take the items belonging to her ex-husband, which was corroborated by video surveillance and then was taken into custody and awaits rst hearing at the Walton County Jail.

Local A2 | Washington County News Saturday, January 18, 2014 is to plan on the future and not just whats happening immediately in front of us. To take a look out into our future and say what we want our state to look like in year 2030. The current unemploy ment rate in Florida is 6.4 percent, explained Blose, which is a decline from 11.4 percent when Charlie Crist was governor. A lot of the 6.4 percent is because a lot of folks dropped out of the labor force, so keep that in mind, he said. Theres been a lot of progress since the dark est days this state has seen in many decades and its still going to be a tough road to climb, which is to create 9,000 new jobs by the year 2020. Despite all of the prog ress thats happened in the state of Florida a recent poll shows that only 35 percent of the people feel that were moving in the right direction versus 49 percent that say were moving in the wrong direction. He said if someone were to look at Florida as its own country, then it would be ranked the nineteenth larg est economy in the world. Technology and the in ternet has allowed us to do not only business in other areas but other countries, said Blose. Florida really is one of the leaders in the globe in being business friendly and having busi nesses being successful. One of the bad parts is that the cost of living has increased from fth to twenty-fth in the last few years and that was one of Floridas biggest selling points. Eighty percent of all jobs created in the state of Flor ida are created by smaller businesses, he said, and to be considered a small busi ness by Florida standards is any businesses of 500 or less employees. Thats why our focus is on small businesses and small business creation and not so much luring big busi ness companies into the state, although that is a good benet as well, said Blose. Id also like to add that 2014 is a big election year and in terms of you providing feed back to your elected ofcials and sharing your opinion and sharing whats going on in your business and in your community and things youd like to see changed, your voice is going to have even more impact this year then it did last year so I really en courage you to become even more involved with com municating to your elected ofcials. He said that more and more people are becoming independent or other voters instead of voting Democrat ic or Republican and that there are two constitutional amendments coming up. One of which is to legal ize marijuana in Florida, which is being ran by John Morgan and he is a very in teresting gentleman, said Blose. There is a growing concern about legalizing marijuana at the Florida Chamber of Commerce in the state of Florida because the conversation about legal izing marijuana in the state of Florida is more about can cer patients and sick people but what this amendment is really about is to legalize the use of marijuana for any rea son as long as your doctor gives you a prescription. So if a doctor determines that marijuana is going to x your headache, your backache, your gout or whatever, thats what were talking about. Blose said theres also an idea that Morgan is only pushing for the legalization of marijuana so that more Democrats will vote for Crist over Governor Rick Scott based on the fact that Crist works for Morgan as a trial lawyer. Another constitutional amendment coming up is water and land conserva tion, which is as American as mom and apple pie, and when you look at this con stitutional amendment you will think that you should do this, said Blose. What it says is that it will require 33 percent of net revenue from excise tax to be depos ited in the Land Acquisition Trust Fund for 20 years and we all love the outdoors and want to conserve land, the question is if this is the right way to do it. And if you look at the numbers, what that 33 percent will look like in the scal year 2015-16 is $648 million and when you think of funding problems and places where the state could use money in we feel its better not to hamstring the budget by purchasing land but instead use it on other things like economic devel opment and solving other problems. Another issue facing the state of Florida, Blose said, was increasing the quality of education through common core and higher education. Education is the new economic currency and in the nation we dont have a set standard of education in ev ery state, he said. Theres that to consider, a national standard which would be regulated by common core that the third graders in ev ery state are measured by the same standards and that the local school systems are developed exactly how to achieve those goals, not the federal government is something that we support at the Florida Chamber of Commerce. Blose said there was also a growing concern from higher education ofcials, colleges, business lead ers and military about the level of education that high school students have after graduating. We have regular meet ings with representatives from these organizations and they are concerned with the level of skills of high school graduates, he said. The military did a study that one quarter of all people gradu ating and trying to join the army fail the entrance exam, colleges are telling us that the level of students going from high school to college are increasingly needing remedial classes, business owners are telling us that the skills high school gradu ates dont match their needs and so if you think about it as a high school graduate those are the three areas youre going to go to. If all three sectors are telling us they have a concern about the skills of high school students then we need to pay atten tion to what theyre trying to say and take action. He then moved on the economic development of Florida. We are really try ing to diversify Floridas economy, said Blose. Ba sically were laying out a road map on how to create 150,000 jobs in the next ve years by taking advantage of the expansion of the Pan ama Canal and global trade. Theres a lot of global trade occurring in Florida, howev er, were not even scratching the surface of the potential that Florida has. They also support rural and military economic de velopment, targeted invest ments for civil and com mercial space projects and Enterprise Florida. Here in the state of Florida we are falling be hind because we are use to being the leader in space exploration and space based businesses for decades and now that the governments kind of backed out of that business and its going more commercial we need to fo cus on that changing factor and what we can do to make sure that Florida remains number one space-based business in the Union, he said. They are also looking into ways of expanding water, en ergy and transportation to accommodate the increase of Floridians and mentioned a potential $500 million tax cut that would reduce DMV fees, Communication Ser vices Taxes, Commercial Lease Taxes and Commu nication Services Tax. For more information visit their website at www.chamber.co m The AT&T Pioneers do nated school supplies to the Washington County District School Board for needy children. This is the volunteer as pect of the telecommunica tion industry, said Area Vice President Ray Dubuque. We support schools, activi ties that go on at schools, we do nursing home visits, we do a lot of different things within the community. Dubuque explained that it used to be just AT&T that started the volunteer net work but it has since then expanded to telecommuni cation entities such as Veri zon and Centrelink. He also added they are the largest volunteer network with a single eld of specialty with 500,000 members but also the least known due to their modesty. Donated were hun dreds of items that included school supplies of every sort, ranging from crayons to notepads and bags. It was announced that Rogers Insurance Agency of Chipley was celebrating their 40th Anniversary as a third generation company. The Chamber also wel comed Northwest Florida Community Hospitals new CEO Mark Bush. The staff is outstanding and the community is very welcoming, said Bush. We appreciate all the support we receive from the community, board and staff. Were here to take care of you so if you need anything dont hesitate to ask. It was also announced that the second phase to Paint the Plug would be in March. For more informa tion visit www.washington countyartscouncil.org CHAMBER from page A1 N e w Vi z h-u hn I nc.

Renee Scott Hopkins, Chipola Coordi nator of Library Cataloging and Library Materials, and Casey Bush, Teacher Edu cation assistant professor, presented the practice, Why is Amelia Bedelia in a Col lege Library? at the AFC state confer ence in Orlando. The K-12 Collection in the Chipola Library serves students in the Teacher Education Program. The collection was created to provide students with handson experience with childrens and young adult library resources. The presentation included a discussion of the collaboration between the Chipola Library and the faculty and students of Teacher Education Program and how as signments were successfully tied into the collection. The presentation also included video clips of Chipola teacher education graduates using the library in the schools in which they teach. Hopkins said, The premise for the cre ation of the K-12 Collection was the goal of providing Chipola teacher students with hands-on experience with library resources so that they would understand the importance of the school library/me dia center within their future workplaces. The goal has expanded to include extend ing the importance of reading within the classroom and beyond. Library staff also created the Teacher Education Collection that includes books pertaining to curriculum development, classroom management, instructional activities, and lesson planning together in close proximity to the K-12 Collection, making it easier for the Education stu dents to make use of Library resources. Soon after Chipola established a Teacher Education Program, Hopkins recognized an opportunity for the Li brary to become a signicant resource for the students during their classes and for teachers as an important extension of their classroom. Working with Casey Bush and others in the School of Education, Hopkins es tablished a 2,000-book collection in the library and created student instructional units in Library assignments. This led to frequent use of the library by faculty and students. Dr. Sarah Clemmons, Chipola Senior Vice President, said, Mrs. Hopkins com mitment to education and excellence ex tends beyond her service to the Chipola Library to having a substantial impact on the Teacher Education Program. Through her efforts, Hopkins ensures that Teacher Education graduates are procient in technology and research, and will ad vance the frequent use of the Library in schools where they are employed.

Community EVENTS Special to Halifax Media Group CHIPLEY The Chipley Kiwanis Club met for its weekly luncheon at Pattillos Restaurant at the Washington Holmes Technical Center. Lunch was provided by the students of the Culinary Program at the Technical Center. Paul Goulding, Program Chair, introduced the program. Clay Hatcher is Executive Director of West Florida Teen Challenge in Bonifay. Teen Challenge gives opportunities and second chances for teens who have had problems. Teen Challenge also goes by the name of Gateway Military Academy and is sponsored by Carmel Assembly of God in Bonifay. It is a Christ centered program. Teen Challenged was started in the 50s by David Wilkerson. The Cross and the Switchblade is a book written about Teen Challenge. Hatcher related how ve young men in New York City committed murder.

Clay Hatcher related that he tries to teach the youths in the program Gods Word to sustain them throughout their lives. Carmel Assembly of God started Teen Challenge in 198990.
