The pastime is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Par ticipants navigate to a specic set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to nd the geocache (container) hidden at that loca tion. There are 2,449,008 active geocaches and over 6 million geocachers worldwide, all regis tered on the ofcial geocaching website. Washington County’s trail will also be registered on that website, www.geocaching. com. “We already have some geo caching sites here other people have established,” TDC Direc tor Heather Lopez said. “But we wanted a trail that would be history based, so we’re only put ting caches at historical sites throughout the county.” There will be about 30 sites, and anyone completing 15 of those and will receive a set of four pathway coins that commemorate something signif icant to the county. So far, com missioned coins represent the Washington County Historical Society, the TDC, and the Vernon Historical Society. To claim their coins, partici pants will download a grid sheet, which will be available on the ofcial worldwide and state geo caching websites, as well as from the TDC. The “caches” will have codes, which the TDC will verify. The TDC says the trail will bring a welcomed boost to the lo cal economy. “In order to win, players will have to go in several quadrants of the county,” Lopez said. “They can’t really do all that in one day, so they will stay in our hotels and shop in our stores. Hopefully, they will see other things we have to offer and come back to enjoy all aspects of our county.” The trail will kick off Oct. 11 at Falling Waters State Park with the “Caches, Critters, and Cars” festival, which will include vendors and activities, such as a classic car show. Museum offers antique spool basket weaving class CHIPL EE Y — The Washington County Historical Society’s History Museum will open early today, July 19, to offer a beginning basketry class. Master Weaver Sharon Hynes will begin teaching the class at 9 a.m. The basket-of-the-day is simple but very interesting, featuring an antique spool as the handle on a rectangle basket. The class fee is $35 per person, which includes all supplies required to weave the basket. Participants must bring a pair of shears and a towel. It will take about three hours to complete the basket. Call Museum Director Dorothy Odom at 638-0348 by July 16 to reserve your spot. The museum’s regular hours are Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the rst Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. to noon. By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN|HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com CHIPL EE Y — Washington County Property Appraiser Gil Carter re cently certied the preliminary property tax roll, and the county’s overall taxable value is preliminar ily listed at $813,482,973 down 3.23 percent from last year. Carter says many factors can impact values, but this year’s de crease is a standard depreciation in set value based on sales. “Taxable values are down be cause the market is down right now,” said Carter. 2014 values are based on the previous year’s sales and do not reect any sales or property im provements after December 31, 2013. While values have decreased, it’s too early to tell if property own ers can look for a 3 percent drop in their tax bill as well. The values have been submitted to the Florida Department of Rev enue, as well as the local taxing au thorities, which include the Board of County Commissioners, district school board, Northwest Florida Water Management (NFWMD), City of Chipley, and City of Vernon. Those taxing authorities will soon set their millage rates so the appraiser’s ofce can apply the numbers to the values to deter mine nal bills. The millage rate trend hasn’t changed much over the past ve years, however. NFWMD and the City of Chipley’s millage rates have remained unchanged in that time at .0450 and 6.0000, respectively, while the Board of County Com missioners haven’t hiked their cur rent rate since increasing it from 8.6185 to 8.9195 in 2010.

Local A2 | Washington County News Saturday, July 19, 2014 The Washington County School Board has had the most uctuation, most re cently decreasing their mill age to 7.5380 in 2013. The district’s millage rates in previous years were: 7.9750 in 2012; 8.0270 in 2011; 7.7840 in 2010 and 7.7810 in 2009. Each “mill” levied will raise $1 for every $1,000 of a property’s assessed value. “I encourage everyone to take a close look at their Truth in Millage (TRIM) no tice,” said Carter. “Property owners only have 25 days to appeal anything they be lieve to be inaccurate.” About 45,000 notices are expected to be sent out around the second week in August.

But an immediate state appeal quickly silenced their wed ding bells. Circuit Judge Luis M. Garcia said same-sex cou ples could get marriage li censes as early as Tuesday in Monroe County, but Re publican Attorney General Pam Bondi said the voters’ will must be respected. An overwhelming majority approved a constitutional amendment in 2008 that de nes marriage as a union solely between one man and one woman. Her notice of appeal creates an auto matic stay that prevents any same-sex marriage licenses from being issued, her ofce said. Garcia, appointed by Republican Gov. Jeb Bush in 2000 and re-elected twice since then, invoked other moments in American his tory when the courts had to guarantee the civil rights of minorities. He said Flor ida’s ban violates the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which guaran tees equal protection under the law. “The court is aware that the majority of voters oppose same-sex marriage, but it is our country’s proud history to protect the rights of the individual, the rights of the unpopular and the rights of the powerless, even at the cost of offending the major ity,” Garcia wrote. “When Nazi suprema cists won the right to march in Skokie, Illinois, a pre dominantly Jewish neigh borhood; or when a black woman wanted to marry a white man in Virginia; or when black children wanted to go to an all-white school, the Constitution guaran tees and protects ALL of its citizens from government interference with those rights,” he added. “It hit us a little bit by surprise,” said attorney Bernadette Restivo, who led suit on behalf of Aaron Huntsman and William Lee Jones, a couple for 11 years. “But it’s very well written ... a thorough analysis of the argument, so we couldn’t be happier.” Huntsman and Jones were celebrating Thursday night at a nightclub in Key West. “We did this to change the laws for everybody in the state of Florida,” Huntsman said. “Not just for us, but for all the people that have been hurting over this undue law that is not right.” Lee said he could barely believe the news when he heard it. “I actually dropped my phone when I got the call,” Jones said. “I was so ex cited, so proud and happy, so glad that we made it this far.” Florida has long been a gay rights battleground. In the 1970s, singer and orange juice spokeswoman Anita Bryant successfully cam paigned to overturn a Dade County ordinance banning discrimination against gays. The county commission re instated those protections two decades later. In 1977, Florida became the only state prohibiting all gay people from adopting children. A state court judge threw out that law in 2008, nding “no rational basis” for that ban, and two years later, the state decided not to appeal, making gay adop tion legal. Gay marriage opponents said Thursday’s ruling dis enfranchises nearly ve mil lion voters — the 62 percent who approved the marriage ban. Repealing the amend ment would require at least 60 percent support. “They do not have a consensus of Floridians, so they’re trying to go to the courts for a quick x. If they’re going to do it, that would be the appropriate way to do — take it to the people again with another amendment. They deliber ately passed on that strat egy because they know that Floridians by and large sup port marriage between a man and a woman,” Stem berger said. Republican Gov. Rick Scott’s ofce attempted to straddle the issue in a state ment late Thursday, saying he “supports traditional marriage, consistent with the amendment approved by Florida voters in 2008, but does not believe that anyone should be discriminated against for any reason.” His Democratic challeng er Charlie Crist had nothing but praise, calling the ruling “a great step toward equal ity in Florida” via Twitter. Currently, 19 states and the District of Columbia have legalized same-sex marriage, and gay mar riage proponents have won more than 20 legal decisions against state marriage lim its since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the fed eral Defense of Marriage Act last year. With many rul ings under appeal, it’s likely the justices in Washington may ultimately decide the question for all states. The ground is shifting in Florida, too, but the state re mains politically complex. The live-and-let-live Keys, captured by Jimmy Buffet in “Margaritaville,” are one of the most liberal parts of the state, which runs the gamut from conservative, reliably Republican areas that close ly resemble the Deep South to political swing region of central Florida to the Dem ocratic bastions of populous South Florida. And within each area are exceptions, such as Miami’s GOP-lean ing Cuban-Americans. Far removed culturally from Anita Bryant’s Florida, Huntsman and Jones met a gay pride celebration in Key West, where they planned to celebrate on Duval Street Thursday night. Two other challenges of Florida’s marriage ban are pending in court. Attorneys for gay couples in MiamiDade County argue that denying marriage to gay parents stigmatizes their adopted children, making them second-class citizens. Another case, in federal court in Tallahassee, would force Florida to allow gay marriage as well as recog nize same-sex marriages performed in other states.

But the addition of more than 37,000 jobs wasn’t enough to push down the state’s unemployment rate signicantly. Florida’s unemploy ment rate was 6.2 percent or a slight dip of 0.1 percent from May. The jobless rate has remained largely at for the rst half of 2014. And for the rst time in more than a year, Florida’s rate is higher than the na tional rate. The U.S. unem ployment rate dropped to 6.1 percent. Florida Gov. Rick Scott, who has made job creation a central focus of his reelection campaign, did not focus on the unemploy ment rate on Friday, choos ing instead to emphasize the number of new jobs that were added. “This news is great for Florida families, and Florida continues to have great success in our state’s economic recovery,” said Scott, who announced the new job numbers during a press conference held in Bonita Springs. Florida led the nation in job losses in May, so the news that the state had rebounded in June is good for Scott. The Republican incumbent ran for ofce four years ago, promising to create 700,000 jobs over the jobs created by normal growth. The governor has continually suggested that his policies have aided the state’s gradual recovery, although that assertion has drawn skepticism and criti cism, especially from his political opponents. Economists have warned this year that the state’s unemployment rate will not drop as sharply as it once did. The state’s economy is recovering, but it is a much slower and drawn out re covery than previous ones. A new economic overview released this week by Flori da’s Ofce of Economic and Demographic Research predicted that “it will take a few more years to climb completely out of the hole left by the recession.” As the recovery takes hold, people begin looking for work again and that’s reected in the monthly unemployment totals. Back in December, for example, there was an es timated 584,000 people out of work. The June numbers put the total of jobless Flo ridians at 597,000. The new numbers show Walton County in Florida’s Panhandle had the lowest unemployment rate at 3.4 percent, while the highest jobless rate in the state is 10.4 percent in Hendry County. Florida unemployment rate dips slightly in June “This news is great for Florida families, and Florida continues to have great success in our state’s economic recovery.” Rick Scott governor

Local Washington County News | A3 Saturday, July 19, 2014 Special to The News Gov. Rick Scott was joined Tuesday, July 15, by state and local emer gency management of cials to remind Floridians that hurricane season has already started and now is the time to get a plan if they don’t have one al ready. Hurricane season goes from Sunday, June 1 through Sunday, Nov. 30 and covers the time frame when hurricanes most likely will form in the At lantic Ocean. Scott said, “With the 2014 hurricane season underway, I want to en courage every family to get a plan. So far this year, there has been one named storm, Hurricane Arthur, and Florida was lucky that we were not directly impacted by it. But, Hurri cane Arthur should serve as a reminder for everyone to get a plan if they don’t already have one. Prepar ing for the upcoming hur ricane season should be a priority for every Florida family, and we must take action now before it’s too late.” Floridians and visitors are advised to develop a plan centered on self-sus tainability for the rst 72 hours following a disaster. FloridaDisaster.org in cludes valuable informa tion on building a plan for individuals, families and businesses, taking into ac count those with special needs, persons with pets, and the elderly. FDEM Director Bryan W. Koon said, “Hurricane Arthur was the rst named storm of the season, and at its closest, it was less than 85, miles from our coast. Hurricane Arthur didn’t impact us signicantly, but it did underscore the need for all Florida families, vis itors and businesses to get a plan and to be prepared for when severe weather does strike us.” Representative Dana Young, Majority Whip, said, “Hurricane season started back in June, but I’m sure many Floridians still don’t have a plan. I can’t stress enough how important it is to account for what you will do with your family and your pets when the next hurricane comes our way.” Maj. Gen. Emmett R. Titshaw Jr., adjutant gen eral of Florida, said, “The Florida National Guard, alongside other Florida rst responders, remains ready to safeguard our citizens. We’ve conducted numerous exercises over the past several months to minimize compla cency and maximize our readiness.” To get tips on how you can protect your family, visit www.FloridaDisaster. org.

Circuit Judge Terry Lewis found two of Florida’s 27 Congres sional Districts, Districts 5 and 10, unconstitution al and ordered them redrawn. While the fair voting amendments require dis tricts to be about equal in population and use obvi ous geographic boundar ies as borders, District 5 — U.S. Rep. Corinne Brown, a Democrat, holds the seat — zigzags from Jackson ville and through Central Florida. District 10 borders District 5 in Central Flori da, and the seat is held by Republican U.S. Rep. Dan Webster. Gaetz, however, defend ed the decision to draw the districts under the Voting Rights Act, which protects the rights of minority vot ers in the United States. “We thought that we had done what the Voting Rights Act required us to do in terms of a majorityminority district,” Gaetz said during an interview with The News Herald’s editorial board. “We’ll re draw the boundaries of those two districts, but 25 of 27 districts were left intact,” including those in Northwest Florida. However, Gaetz and House Speaker Will Weath erford are pushing to delay redrawing districts until the 2016 congressional election. “We want to make sure that the ballots that have already been mailed to our servicemen and women overseas — about 65,000 ballots have al ready been sent — that the voting rights of those uni formed military families would be protected,” Gaetz said. Because the judge reserved jurisdiction over some aspects of the case, the affected parties will attend a status conference with Lewis on Thursday to discuss the next step. It will be up to Lewis to decide whether to let the Legislature redraw the maps. His ruling last week did not specify who should redraw the map or when it should be redrawn. “We feel the judge was fair,” Gaetz said. “We be lieve his ruling can be complied with, and we fully intend to comply with his ruling.” GOP won’t appeal redistricting ruling Summer is here and so is the heat Special to The News The Florida Department of High way Safety and Motor Vehicles is re minding everyone to take additional steps to ensure that no child is left unattended in a vehicle this sum mer. This year, there have been two reported cases in Florida of children dying of heatstroke after being left in cars. Don’t be distracted when leaving your vehicle and take a sec ond look in the back seat to ensure a child is not left behind. Getting into a car that has been sitting in the sun on a hot summer day in Florida can be unbearable. The inside of a vehi cle can heat up by 20 degrees in just 10 minutes and cracking a window open does little to keep the vehicle cool. A child’s body temperature can rise three to ve times faster than an adult’s and heatstroke in a closed vehicle can occur when the temperature is as low as 57 degrees outside. For the safety of your chil dren, never leave a child unattended in a vehicle, even for a short period of time. Florida law makes it a crimi nal offense to leave a child younger than age 6 unattended in a vehicle. Tips for preventing heatstroke deaths in vehicles: z Never leave any child unat tended in a vehicle. z Put something in the back seat that you will need at your nal des tination like a purse, briefcase, cell phone or shoe that will remind you to look in the back seat. z If you see a child unattended in a vehicle, call 911. z After checking to make sure your vehicle is empty, always lock it and teach children not to play in vehicles. z Pets also are susceptible to heatstroke if left unattended in a closed vehicle as well. A study by researchers at San Francisco State University showed that, on average, 38 children die each year as a result of heatstroke after being left in a closed vehicle. Since 1998, 66 child heatstroke deaths have occurred in Florida for this reason, more than any other state. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and secu rity through excellence in service, education and enforcement. The Department is leading the way to A Safer Florida through the efcient and professional execution of its core mission: the issuance of driver licenses, vehicle tags and titles and operation of the Florida Highway Patrol.

Gaetz: Florida changing approach to attract businesses By VALERIE GARMAN 747-5076 | @valeriegarman vgarman@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY — A passive ap proach to economic development doesn’t cut it anymore in the Sun shine State. “Florida for a long time took a very passive approach to job creation and economic develop ment,” Florida Senate President Don Gaetz said at a News Herald editorial board meeting Tuesday. “We sat at the welcome station with a glass of free orange juice and a real estate map and sort of hoped they’d come, and for de cades and decades they did.” But as the U.S. continues to recover from an economic reces sion and states jockey for proj ects, even the freshest juice isn’t enough to create jobs. Gaetz, R-Niceville, said the state now is taking an active approach to economic develop ment, with larger investments made to attract new businesses to create jobs and diversify the economy. But while state-funded incen tives often were “faith-based” in the past — offer funds with limited, if any, strings attached — these days the state requires companies meet certain metrics before they receive funding. “When taxpayer money is used to incent economic develop ment, what I’ve insisted on is that there be a very careful, businesslike return on investment calcu lation,” Gaetz said. “We’ll provide tax breaks and economic induce ments as we see the jobs actually being induced.” Even with those standards to meet, Gaetz said companies have been biting. “I think we have plenty of ad vantages to bring to the table in Northwest Florida,” Gaetz said. “I don’t think we have to go in and say, ‘Look, you get this mon ey whether you perform or not.’ I don’t think that’s economic devel opment; I think that’s stupidity.” However, economic develop ment ofcials in Bay County of ten cite the area’s scarce skilled workforce as the biggest chal lenge in attracting new industry. Gaetz said legislators have been working to address the issue statewide by incorporating pro grams for public school students to earn national industry certi cations to prepare them to enter the workforce after graduation. Initially developed in Okaloo sa County where Gaetz served as superintendent of schools, the CHOICE Institute program has expanded its reach statewide and teaches industry standards through industry instructors. As a result, the number of students learning job skills in secondary school has increased drastically, from 900 in 2008 to 273,000 this year, Gaetz said. At the college level, the state recently enacted performancebased funding for colleges and universities, rewarding institu tions based on graduation rates and the number of students that enter a job in their eld. “We’re doing more perfor mance funding tied to gradua tion and jobs than any other state in the country,” said Gaetz, who fears efforts will come forth in fu ture legislative sessions to water it down. “My crusade has been trying to lash education closer to the realities of the economy,” Gaetz said. “I’ll be standing there do ing what we need to strengthen it instead.” “I don’t think we have to go in and say, ‘Look, you get this money whether you perform or not.’ ” Sen. DD on Gaetz R-Niceville
