A5 Southerland touts farm bill By CHRIS OLWELL 747-5079 | @PCNHchriso colwell@pcnh.com MARIANNA — Two congressmen behind the recently signed into law farm bill visited a farm in one the Panhandle’s most agriculturally dependant counties to tout the impacts of the new law on local farmers. Rep. Steve Southerland, R-Panama City, and Rep. Frank Lucas, R-Yukon, Okla., the House Agriculture Committee chairman, spent part of their afternoon visiting Baggett Farms to discuss the bill, which is expected to cost about $1 trillion over 10 years and recently passed with bipartisan support. Though they said they wanted more reforms included in the bill, they said they were proud of the bill. “It’s done. It’s a ve-year farm bill that moves the curve forward in a number of areas,” Lucas said. “We didn’t get everything.” For Adam Baggett, who raises cattle and grows peanuts and cotton on the farm that hosted Southerland and Lucas, the details of the 1,000-page bill are largely unclear and dif cult to understand. He’s a plainspoken man, so it was nice to have the congressmen out to translate the legalese into “redneck”-speak, Baggett said half-jokingly. “To be honest with you, I know it’s good, I know it’s better, that it’s going to bene t us, but as far as telling you why — I couldn’t tell you,” Baggett said. Baggett said support prices, subsidies that kick in when market prices drop below a certain level on peanuts and changes to crop insurance will bene t farmers in Jackson County, and he was glad to have laws in place that will create stability. “Now we’ve got something in concrete for ve years,” Baggett said. In the past, the government has paid subsidies to farmers regardless of whether they produced crops. This bill will require farmers to pay for insurance against crop failures, subsidized by the government, that won’t pay if a harvest goes as planned. “You’ll only get help when you have a weather failure or a market failure,” Lucas said. The visit to Jackson County makes sense. Agriculture is a “huge” industry in Jackson County, said Tamarah Rasmussen with the local Chamber of Commerce. About 35 percent of the almost 50,000 people who live in the county are employed in agriculture, she said. “We are one of the biggest agriculture and agro-tourism counties in the state,” Rasmussen said. Southerland was instrumental in crafting the farm bill’s requirement that able-bodied adults work, enter a training program or do volunteer work in order to receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistant Program bene ts. SNAP bene ts used to be called food stamps. The provision will Proposed changes coming to SR 77 By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT ckent@chipleypaper.com The Florida Department of Transportation says the planned expansion of Highway 77 won’t mean four laning through the town of Wausau after all. FDOT spokesman Ian Satter says the recommended bypass will be to the east of Wausau instead. “We’re not actively looking to four-lane through the town of Wausau,” Satter said. “We got to looking at it and decided it wasn’t in the best interest for the department or for the Town of Wausau.” The current proposal includes widening State Road 77 from one mile north of Wausau to just south of Clayton Road (County Road 276). That segment of construction is scheduled to begin in 2019 at a cost of $20.8 million. The project is part of a ve-year work program outlining about $300 million in new infrastructure projects in the Panhandle that is intended to increase capacity on state roadways that connect to I-10. A public information meeting is scheduled at 5 p.m. March 18, at the Wausau Town Hall. The meeting is intended to present proposed changes to the State Road 77 bypass project, followed by a public hearing on the matter. See FARM BILL A2 Investigators fear more victims in case of Chipley Army Sergeant By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT ckent@chipleypaper.com Federal and state agencies are warning residents of both the Chipley area and in the area of the Joint Base Lewis McChord military base in Washington that more victims could surface in the recent investigation of a Chipley Army sergeant. Acting on a tip from Florida last week, investigators from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, US Army Criminal Investigation Division, and Washington State Patrol arrested a 27-year old Sergeant Joseph T. French of Chipley on multiple allegations of child rape. The arrest was made shortly after detectives from the Washington State Patrol’s Missing and Exploited Children’s Task Force (MECTF) interviewed French. “This is a terri c example of how multiple agencies can move very quickly to protect the most vulnerable citizens in our society,” said Captain Wes Rethwill, commander of WSP’s Investigative Assistance Division. JOSEPH FRENCH Tigers on the hunt for 2nd state championship in 3 years, A2 Special to The News LAKELAND — Chipley’s nal push for a state championship was timed two minutes too soon. The Tigers rallied to take the lead late in the fourth quarter, but Paxton regained control in the game’s waning minutes to beat Chipley 39-34 in the Class 1A girls basketball state championship at The Lakeland Center on Thursday. Chipley collected its second consecutive runner-up nish at state and nished the year 256. Paxton earned the fth state championship in program history with the victory and ended the season 26-3. The Tigers led 25-20 early in the third quarter before turnovers allowed Paxton to unleash a 10-0 run to take a 30-25 lead into the fourth quarter. The Bobcats, who forced 33 turnovers a day earlier against Chie and in the semi nals, scored four buckets off of Chipley turnovers in the third quarter. Another successful season!

Financing Arranged (W AC) By JASON SHOOT 747-5069 | @PCNHJasonShoot jshoot@pcnh.com CHIPLEY — Put a hand in their face, and Chipley standouts Trent Forrest and Tyrome Sharpe will put the ball on the oor and attack the basket. Sag off defensively, and the Tigers’ electrifying duo will rain down 3-pointers all night. Port St. Joe simply ran out of ways to defend For rest and Sharpe, and Chi pley pulled away in the second half to earn a 66-41 home victory in a Region 31A boys basketball seminal Tuesday night. The Tigers, who are seeking their second state championship in three years, hosted West Gadsden — a 61-54 winner over Bratt Northview on Tuesday — in the regional nals on Friday night at 7 p.m. (Results were not available at press time.) The winner will advance to the Class 1A state semi nals in Lakeland next week. Forrest red in 31 points to power the Tigers on Tues day. He scored 11 points from the foul line before he made a bucket from the oor, and he overwhelmed PSJ’s defense with relent less drives to the basket that resulted either in a layup or a trip to the foul line. “I just want to see if I can get to the rack,” Forrest said. “If I can’t, I trust my teammates to knock down the shot.” Chipley held a 13-10 lead through the rst eight min utes before Forrest and Sharpe took control in the second quarter. They scored seven points apiece to help the Tigers stretch their lead to 35-27 at halftime. Tigers coach Joel Or lando slowed the pace in the third quarter, and Forrest and Sharpe combined for nine of Chipley’s 11 points to extend the margin to 46-33 going into the nal quarter. Chipley unleashed a 17-2 run in the fourth quarter to put the game away. Sharpe nished with 16 points for the Tigers. He is the lone holdout from the Chipley team that won a state title two years ago. ”I can’t really make a comparison,” Sharpe said of the two teams. “Both teams work hard. It’s different teams with different play ers, but (the effort) is basi cally the same thing.” Justin Campbell added 10 points off the bench for Chipley, taking advantage of gaps in the Tiger Sharks’ de fense as PSJ focused on im peding Forrest and Sharpe. TJ Williams and JD Da vis scored nine and eight points, respectively, for PSJ. impact between 4 and 5 mil lion people, they said. “Our desire in the work requirement came from the belief that work is a blessing,” Southerland said. The original iteration of Southerland’s work re quirement was more con troversial and was blamed for delaying the passage of the bill. Southerland said he still hears about that. “It’s funny that the de tractors want to talk about last summer and the origi nal bill going down, but they fail to nish the story,” Southerland said. That might have been a not-so-veiled dig aimed at his Democratic challenger in the next election, Gwen Graham, who earlier in the day released a statement blaming Southerland for delaying the passage of a farm bill. “The farmers in North Florida will nally have certainty when planting next year’s crops,” Gra ham said in a statement released Tuesday. “It is un fortunate the sole reason the bill was delayed in the rst place was because of a manufactured crisis by Congressman Southerland — who put partisan politics above farmers, the econo my and his own district.” S peci PECI A l L TO TheTHE N e E W s S Washington County Chamber of Commerce members and ambassadors were on hand to welcome Holmes Creek Pizza and Pasta Company as a Washington County business Tuesday, Feb. 18, with an ofcial ribbon cutting.

Smith Elementary School students spent Valentine’s Day creating dried oral arrangements with the Chipley Garden Club. As Vonceil Coggin demonstrated oral design techniques in the classroom, Charlotte Sapp and Second Vice President/Youth Fair Chairperson Linda Pigott explained techniques, introduced dried materials and identied new vocabulary words. After the classroom activity, the children joined club members under the pavilion. Boxes lled with a large assortment of dried materials — all grown and/or collected by club members — and recycled containers lled with sand were ready for the students. Club members assisted by identifying dried materials, reinforcing design techniques and providing ideas for the young designers. “I continue to be amazed at the creativity and imagination of the children,” Pigott said. “The arrangements the fourth-graders created this year are just wonderful! The judges will have their work cut out for them this year at the Washington County 4-H Youth Fair on Feb. 28 and March 1.” Later this month, club members will return to KMS to teach live oral design.

J.A. Hicks of the WSP told The Washington County News in a Feb. 20 phone inter view. “And we have reason to believe there are others who could still come for ward, even as far away as the Chipley, Fla., area.” Current charges involve multiple assaults upon a single victim over a period of about three years. According to investiga tors, French reportedly sexually abused the female victim both at a private Washington residence and on the joint base LewisMcChord, where he was stationed. French is accused of ty ing the victim’s wrists and feet to a swing during the attacks, which he report edly broadcast to another military service mem ber and a female viewer through Skype. “Once we make arrests in these kinds of cases, it’s very common for additional victims to come forward,” Rethwill said. “We hope that any additional victims will now feel safe enough to make a report.” Investigators will now focus on verifying state ments from those involved and forensic examina tion of computers, smart phones and any other digi tal media. It has not yet been de termined whether the case will be handled at the state or federal level. Prosecu tors will make that decision after additional investiga tion by WSP’s Missing and Exploited Children Task Force, the FBI’s Child Ex ploitation Task Force and the Army’s Criminal In vestigation Division. Detectives encourage anyone whose children had contact with French to contact them at (360) 704-2410 or mectf@wsp. wa.gov. A hearing is set for French for Feb. 28 in Washington.

Chipley held the Bobcats without a point over the next ve min utes, however, and reeled off seven straight points to seize a 34-32 lead with Alivia Thomas’ free throw with 2:42 remaining. That amounted to Chipley’s last point of the game. Emily Murray, who led all scorers with 20 points, buried a 3-pointer with 39 seconds left to put Paxton back on top 35-34. Murray made four free throws in the nal 11 seconds to seal the Bobcats’ win. “She took over the game today like she took over the game yesterday,” Tuel said of Murray. Amanda Paschal powered Chipley with 16 points, 10 rebounds and ve assists, and it was her three-point play with 3 minutes left that gave the Tigers their rst lead of the fourth quarter at 33-32. The two teams traded the lead four times in the opening quarter before nishing the rst eight minutes dead locked at 11-11. Paschal converted a three-point play and knocked down a 3-pointer in the second quarter, and the Tigers carried a 21-18 lead into the locker room at halftime.

NOTICE OF FORECLOSURE SALE NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN pursuant to a Final Judgment of ForeSpecial to The News The Chipley Kiwanis Club met for its weekly luncheon Tuesday at Pattillo’s Res taurant at the Washington–Holmes Tech nical Center. The students of the WHTC Culinary Program provided lunch. Michelle Taggert, scholarship chair man, said Kiwanis scholarship applica tions are available at Chipley and Vernon high schools. She offered applications to members to distribute to interested stu dents and families. Dell Corbin, youth services chairman, presented a check for $1,000 to Andy Compton, who is leading the effort to put on a Dixie Youth Baseball World Series this summer. Eleven teams from 11 South ern states will come to Chipley to play be ginning July 26. Teams will comprise high school students ages 17 and under. Comp ton noted the budget for the World Series is $40,000, of which the Washington County Tourist and Development Commission is funding $20,000. There is also a goal to raise $20,000 from the community. Ad sales for the program will begin in April. Corbin also presented a check to Mark Mauldin, the new agriculture and natural resources agent for Washington County. The check will be used to support the Washington County Youth Fair, which will be Feb. 28 to March 1. The program was introduced by Paul Goulding and presented by Washington County Commissioner Alan Bush and In terim Clerk of the Court Harold Bazzel. Their purpose was to inform the public about the issues related to the closing of the Washington County Courthouse. “Over the last two summers, Washing ton County has experienced heavy rainfall, and water has collected in the basement near the elevator well and the probation ofce,” they reported. “After some time, occupants and visitors began to notice a terrible smell.” Last summer, with the heavy rains, there began to be problems on the outside of the courthouse as well. A 900-pound piece of the faade fell off and destroyed a handicap ramp. There were also roof leaks and problems. In the basement, mold was found in the old records and in the jury bathroom. There were also leaks in some secondand third-oor rooms. Mold and water damage were noted par ticularly in the southeast corner of the basement, where old records back to 1840 were stored. It was then decided to have an air qual ity test performed in limited areas of the courthouse, including some areas in the basement and second and third oors. Dozens of strains of mold were identied, including ve that were health risks. Paint also was chipping off, and the paint con tained lead. Judge Colby Peel determined the court house was no longer safe to hold court be cause of the health risks. In December, the Washington County Board of Commission ers voted to close it. Because the court has to meet in Washington County, the Annex Court Room in the sheriff’s ofce is being used, as well as the county commission ers’ boardroom. The boardroom is used for low security cases. The Annex Court Room has security issues and will only hold about 80 people. To nd solutions for these problems, the county commission created a Facili ties Steering Committee to nd solutions and to seek help from the state legislature. While the state legislature seems sympa thetic, there’s no solution yet. There has been a good response from legislators in the last two weeks, as well as from the State Supreme Court, the governor’s of ce and staff. Washington County has about $700,000 available for courthouse repairs. The roof is a one-ply membrane that is leaking, the window wells leak and the French drains clog up. In addition to the roof, the exte rior brick walls need to be sealed, new windows and gutters are needed, and the mold and peeling paint within the build ing are issues as well. These problems are estimated to need about $5 million to x, while a new courthouse would cost $8 million to $9 million. The new court would have more facilities and built to meet cur rent courthouse codes, which would be impossible to meet in the current build ing. A suggestion was made to build a new courthouse on the land formerly occupied by the old Chipley Motel. Bush and Bazzel were invited to return soon to brief the Kiwanis Club on further progress on this vital problem.
