Holmes Creek Pizza & Pasta Company is at 3031 Main St. in Vernon. Growth strategies taking shape By CAROL KENT 638-0212 ckent@chipleypaper.com The Washington County Chamber of Commerce hosted the fourth in a series of Economic Development Symposiums on Thursday at the Panhandle Area Education Consortium in Chipley. The previous three symposiums helped provide insight into how economic development works and identi ed Washington County’s needs, strengths and weakness. Collaborative member Terry Ellis opened the meeting, explaining this meeting was simply the next step on the path to a stronger local economy. “We’re just putting the details together,” said Ellis, who serves as manager of West Point Home Inc. in Chipley. ”Jobs represent opportunity, and the challenge is to forget about district lines and city limits and do this for our families.” The collaborative posed three questions that were discussed and answered by four groups in “break-away” sessions: What existing assets do we have that can be used to stimulate economic development? How can we enhance those assets to improve their marketability? How do we fund those enhancements? There was no shortage of answers from the participants. Assets identi ed included the county’s proximity to transportation corridors such as I-10 and highways 77 and 90, availability of large tracts of quality land, quality hospital and education systems, low crime and existing infrastructure.

Above, Keen poses with ance Heather Carter while providing music for Chipley High School’s Class of 1993 reunion last November. Keen remembered for ‘giving back’ From Staff Reports A Washington County man is being remembered as a loving family man and friend this week after succumbing to injuries he received in a car accident last Monday, February 10. The Florida Highway Patrol reports Samuel Aldon Keen, 40, was traveling westbound on County Road 276 around 4 p.m. and entered the northbound lands of State Road 75 (Highway 231) and crossed the path of a semi truck, driven by Jonnie W. McClendon, 68, of Georgia. The front of the semi collided with the left side of Keen’s 2000 Dodge van, sending the van to rest facing west in the southbound lanes. The semi came to rest facing north across the northbound lanes and left turn lane. Keen was airlifted to Bay Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead Tuesday, February 11. Keen’s ance, Heather Lynn Carter, who is expecting the couple’s rst child, was a passenger in the van. Carter was transported to Jackson Hospital, where she was treated and released later that same day. Keen’s sister, Charlotte Miller, says while her family is grieving their loss, she hopes Keen will be remembered for his contributions to his community. “Sammy loved to give back,” says Miller. “He enjoyed working as a music DJ and would often donate his services to non prot events, such as Chipley’s ROTC program. He was a great friend, father, brother and son and never met a stranger.” Keen had four children, with a daughter expected this summer. Arrests made by JCSO in separate domestic complaints Special to the News Tuesday, Feb. 4, new and outgoing Battalion Com manders, C/LTC Myiesha Boston and C/LTC Jona than Gilbert, met with the Kiwanis club to present and share about the Chi pley High School JRTOC program. C/LTC Boston gave in formation about the his tory of the program, as well as what occurred dur ing her year as Battalion Commander. The program as a whole in the last year has collect ed over 2,000 hours of com munity service. These hours were earned by a vast majority of the cadets during projects such as helping restore a home with Hammer and Hearts, participating in a canned food drive to give to the Council on Aging, tak ing care of their own high way with Adopt-A-Highway and presenting the colors at football games. In the year that C/LTC Boston was Battalion Commander, as much as 403 ribbons and at least 80 promotions have been issued. In the program, as many as 5 cadets joined our Mili tary Forces. Their mission is not to recruit or inuence young people to join the military, but it is a good experience if they are considering it. Afterward, C/LTC Gil bert discussed the six teams that the program is involved in including Color Guard, Honor Guard, Flag Detail, Drill Team, Rie Team, and Raider Team. All of the teams have done exceptionally well, with Fe male Color Guard placing 4th out of 36 schools at the State-Level competition in April of 2013. The CHS JROTC pro gram is the only one in the region to have competed at State in all events. It was with great honor to have the privilege to share with the local Ki wanis group.

Local Washington County News | A3 Saturday, February 15, 2014 “The cost is $350 for the gig with Paron’s Pro duce and Black Hat-Camo Productions as the event promoters.” Hot dog lunches will be sold at the Caryville Flea Market today, Feb. 22, March 7, March 15, March 29, April 5 and April 11 at $4 a plate to raise funds for the entertainment. In other business, the council approved resident Ashley Pate’s request to in stall a gate limiting access to private property off of Strickland Road. “People are going down that portion of road and dumping garbage and needles,” Pate said. “I’ve spoke with the surround ing landowners, and they are more than happy with the idea. There will be a combination lock, and both the owners and the city will have access to the combination.” Council approved with a vote of 2-1, with council member Ransom Works voting “no.” “It’s not right to block people off from accessing areas of the city,” Works said. The Council also ap proved a proclamation recognizing Feb. 11 as Di xie Phonics Day. “Dixie Phonics” is a style of music as presented by Herbert J. “Kuntry” Carter, a 72-yearold country singer from Leon County. Carter said he created Dixie Phonics so North Florida and South Georgia would have a classication for the area’s own unique sound, which he said is a combination of Cajun, Tex as swing and bluegrass. “This will allow local artists to have a platform to work from, especially if they’re planning on going to Nashville,” Carter said. “This helps musicians con nect. I’m creating a cultur al exchange.” Millard French told the Council visitors represent ing the local Tourist Devel opment Council will be at the next council meeting to discuss Caryville’s old RV Park, the Farmer’s Market and the old prison. French also said the materials cost quote to x the roof of the Caryville Recreational Center is $4,600, with local inmates providing the labor. Council member Jim Taylor said they were “re ally close” to xing the roof, with $3,500 left in the Worm Fiddling account. The Council also ap proved of Fire Chief Gene Forehand purchasing a new phone with a prepaid plan from Wal-Mart. The Council will meet again in regular session at 6 p.m. March 11.

GROWTH from page A1 CARYVILLE from page A1 Greyhound Park has shown off plans to add slot machines to its existing facilities, which include a dog track and card room. State Sen. Jack Latvala, R-St. Petersburg, pushed the hardest on the panel to open up slots in these counties. He said six coun ties across the state consented to slots already but can’t use them. Latvala said the voters’ will should be recognized and took his argument a step further. He said all other counties should have an equal opportunity for a referen dum to get their own slots. The committee plans to pro pose comprehensive legislation this year that will include a re quirement that any gambling ex pansion be approved as a state constitutional amendment, re quiring 60 percent of the vote. Latvala wants all counties to have a chance at slots without that requirement. Palm Beach County senators, where slots are stalled by the Bondi decision, also pushed to allow the casino-style gambling machines. Other lawmakers avoided the contentious issue, including the panel’s only Panhandle represen tative, Sen. Bill Montford, D-Tal lahassee, whose district includes Calhoun and Gulf counties. Comprehensive legislation The committee and the public still haven’t seen the rst draft of the comprehensive gaming legis lation and what it will say about slots. Chairman Garrett Richter, R-Naples, ultimately will decide what goes into it and was non committal on the issue Monday. “We just have to continue to weigh all the impact … that there is as we proceed in this,” he said. His hesitation comes even though Lee County, which he rep resents, also has its slots stalled because of Bondi’s decision. Richter, however, agreed other counties should have a shot at their own referendum before the constitutional amendment re quirement would take effect. The constitutional amend ment requirement is one of many provisions in the three-bill pack age that will come in proposed committee bills and be revealed Feb. 24. Richter chose to delay mak ing the bills’ text public Monday; instead, he opted to open up the panel for more discussion on the legislation, offering only details of the legislation’s current content. Richter also reasserted his support for decoupling — ending a requirement that tracks run a minimum number of races to op erate card rooms. Last week he got pushback from Latvala over fears about breeders’ and train ers’ jobs after decoupling, but he suggested a phase-in approach Monday, and although he gave no details that appeared to mollify Latvala. Because of possible conicts with federal law on horse racing, the panel will address the dog and horse decoupling as separate measures. The committee also recon rmed its commitment to require tracks to report animal injuries. Seminole Compact The committee also voiced concerns over how the legisla tion would affect the Seminole Compact. The state government must renegotiate the banked card games portion of the com pact by 2015; these games in clude blackjack and baccarat. The concern is how much revenue the state would lose on the compact if it allowed a des tination casino in Miami-Dade County and in Broward County. Both are included in the current legislation. Palm Beach County senators still are pushing to get a destina tion casino in their county, but Richter wasn’t interested. He said the state can’t have “carte blanche expansion of casinos.” The proposed legislation also would create a ve-member “Gaming Control Board.” The panel would oversee all gaming throughout the state, except for the Florida Lottery. The mem bers would be appointed by the governor for staggered fouryear terms and former lawmak ers could not be picked for three years. Some lawmakers opposed the Lottery’s exclusion from the gaming commission. Lat vala said the state constitution limits the number of state de partments the Legislature can create and it’s getting pretty close to that ceiling already. He suggested putting the Lottery under the gaming commission to free up a department. Meanwhile, Sen. Oscar Braynon, D-Miami Gardens, took a jab at the Republican-led Legislature proposing multiple layers of government expansion. He said he wasn’t sure about a provision allowing the state ag riculture department to oversee bingo and other games when a gaming commission would exist. He also noted the state already has the Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering. “I would hope that if we are creating a new joint-oversight gaming department that we would try to condense things … but again that’s just me as the small-government Democrat that I am,” he said. SLOT sS from page A1 Ideas to enhance those ex isting assets included creating and keeping a current inven tory of available land tracts and their available resources, such as water and sewer ac cess. Also discussed was the importance of pre-developing the areas most desirable to develop by initiating new in frastructure. Promoting the community and developing continuity between local gov ernment entities, merchants and the private sector were also listed as a priority. Funding ideas ranged from partnering with the Tourist Development Commission for capital improvements to earmarking a percentage of county land sales to contrib ute to the economic develop ment fund. Vernon’s strong recreation base also was discussed, along with the po tential to enhance it through state grants. More state and federal grants also could be identied through establish ing a lobby relation in Talla hassee to listen out for fund ing opportunities. ”It’s time for us to stop talking about it and do some thing about it,” said John Rob bins of Bay Solutions. “You have a lot more power than you realize. Together, we can do it. Together, we can move mountains.” Because of possible conicts with federal law on horse racing, the panel will address the dog and horse decoupling as separate measures.
