For more information visit www. pandlewatermelon. co m Fuel levy eyed to generate revenue By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Washington County of cials are hoping a ve cents gas tax will help generate the revenue needed to help pull the county out of staggering debt. The tax, commonly called the ELMS Nickel, allows counties to levy a fuel tax of up to ve cents and requires approval by a supermajority vote from the Board of County Commissioners. The revenue projected to be about $458,000 a year would be distributed between the county and its municipalities through an interlocal agreement. Of that amount, the county would receive about $400,000, and the rest would be split between the cities. Interim Clerk of Court Harold Bazzel says the idea is to earmark revenue from the levy to fund road projects as allowed by the state, freeing other funds to be allocated to repay the countys debts. Washington County is in serious debt, said Bazzel. It didnt get this way all at once, so our commissioners inherited a mess. Theres been a cycle of spending and borrowing since sometime in the 90s, and it needs to stop. Currently, notes owed by the county total more than $8.2 million. County addresses ooding issues By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The Washington County Board of County Commissioners were told theres no long term solution for ooding problems on Rolling Pines and Childress roads. Both have properties that have been underwater since April, causing residents to use boats to reach their cars. One Childress resident who receives her medication by mail reports her postal carrier said they can no longer deliver mail to her address until the water recedes. The county has been pumping water off the roads with a pump on loan from the Florida Department of Transportation at a FEMA reimbursable cost of about $200 a day, and commissioners voted to look into acquiring another pump to use as well. Don Fendley, a resident of Rolling Pines Rd. since 1997, says the pumping has helped. Before the county started pumping the water off, we were having to travel by boat, said Fendley. The water was so high we could oat over where we knew a four-foot fence separated property lines easily. Im not please with the water, but I am not pleased with the way the county has responded. Fendley says others have helped out, too, including local members of the Florida Baptist Convention Disaster Relief Team and members of Vernons Abigail Baptist Church, who lled Fendleys truck with more than 22 cases of bottled water. My son and daughter both have homes here, too, and were worried about Legislation geared to protect 260 jobs here Staff reports WASHINGTON, D.C. As promised in an April press conference at Chipleys WestPoint Home facility, U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland, II introduced legislation (H.R. 4955) Wednesday to extend for 10 years a free trade provision between the United States and Bahrain that is critical to keeping 260 Northwest Florida manufacturing jobs at WestPoint Home in Chipley. Southerlands bill would keep in place a Tariff Preference Level (TPL) set to expire in January 2016, ensuring WestPoint Home can continue accessing input materials imported from Bahrain. At a time when U.S. textile manufacturers are struggling to survive, WestPoint Home in Chipley, Florida represents one of the few remaining textile facilities in America, said Southerland. Unfortunately, this facility and its 260 highly skilled Washington County workers are at risk due to an expiring trade provision. I am proud to introduce this legislation to ensure these jobs stay right here in Northwest Florida, while also extending much-needed relief to an industry that has moved predominately overseas. As the President and CEO of the last major U.S. based home textiles producer, this is an issue my team has been very focused on, said Normand Savaria, President and CEO of WestPoint Home. The bottom line is that the proposed extension provides a mechanism to protect U.S. jobs. We appreciate the recognition and focus of Congressman Steve Southerland on this critical issue. The Northwest Florida Manufacturers Council supports the extension of the TPL program under the UBFTA in order to assist the domestic textile industry and to secure jobs in Florida, said Greg Britton, President of the addresses ooding REBIRTH OF A SPRING Groundbreaking held for Williford Spring restoration By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com SAND HILLS Groundbreaking ceremonies were held Thursday for the $1.5 million restoration project at Williford Spring in southern Washington County. The spring, one of several found in the Econ na Creek Water Management Area, was closed in April so the Northwest Florida Water Management District (NWFWMD) could prepare for the project, which will address shoreline erosion and improve recreation access to the area. Recreational improvements will include spring entry steps, a patio terrace, spring view deck, canoe dock, boardwalks, picnic pavilions, parking area, a connector trail to Pitt and Sylvan springs, as well as interpretive trails and native landscaping. NWFWMD Governing Board Member Gary Clark says the enhancements will improve public access to the spring in a way that protects the health of the spring and surrounding habitats.

Local A2 | Washington County News Saturday, June 28, 2014 One of those debts, owed to SunTrust Bank, is on a $5.5 million sales tax prom issory note used for various projects, such as renova tions to the county ofces on South Blvd. Washington County has only paid inter est on that loan since 2009, an amount projected in this years audit to be around $280,000. The terms of the loan state its principal is due October 1. Over the years, the county has been trying to borrow away the debt, said Bazzel. And come October, the bank could call that note. Bazzel contracted with former Leon County Finan cial Director Bill Bogan to help address the problem. Bogan assures residents the county is working to identify and address its budgetary issues, and the note wont be called. Were not going to let it get to that point, said Bo gan. We hope to renegoti ate that note with the bank and begin to pay it down, as well as other debts, rath er than just keep paying interest. County Attorney Jeff Goodman will draft the ELMS Nickel proposal, which will be presented to local municipalities for ap proval, as well as in a public hearing. This is really the best option, said Bazzel. In stead of through raising property taxes, revenue will be generated by all res idents, as well as those just passing through, not just property owners. If the proposal passes, the new ve cents fuel levy will become effective Janu ary 1, 2015. REVENUE from page A1 Northwest Florida Manu facturers Council. By creating a level play ing eld, FTAs help Florida companies. The Mid-East region is an important trading block with Florida. The benets achieved un der the US-Bahrain FTA are important to creating opportunities for manufac turers, small business and our goal to expand trade relationships to global markets, said David Hart, Executive Vice President of the Florida Chamber of Commerce. JOBS from page A1 Through this restora tion project, the district will improve water quality and clarity by removing sedi ment from the pool, restor ing native vegetation along the spring bank that helps catch runoff and sediment, and by constructing areas to capture and treat storm water to improve water quality before it enters the spring, said Clark. This will help protect one of Washington Countys beautiful natural attrac tions long into the future. Not only is it a perfect spot for Washington County res idents to spend time out doors, it also attracts visi tors to the area who rent canoes and kayaks, shop in our stores, and eat in our restaurants. Funding for the proj ect includes more than $377,000 from the nearly $37 million in springs fund ing proposed by Governor Rick Scott and appropri ated by the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). The project also includes nearly $70,000 in funding from a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission grant. DEP Secretary Her schel Vinyard called the project the rebirth of a spring, saying it was a re sult of local leadership and support. Nothing gets done without leadership, said Vinyard. There was re cord funding for the springs last year, and that fund ing was tripled this year. Theres a great passion for our springs right now, and the challenge has just begun. There will be other projects. Joe Petrich, the proj ects landscape architect, says restoration should be complete in a year, but there may be a period that the spring remains closed as the natural vegetation becomes re-established. Nearby Pitt and Sylvan springs remain open to the public. CAROL KENT | The News Protective barriers currently surround the spring to protect the waters quality and clarity. Several leaders, including Representative Jimmy Patronis ( pictured below ), praised the restoration project as an opportunity to increase the quality of Washington Countys ecotourism. A small crowd was gathered at Williford Spring in southern Washington County Thursday to mark groundbreaking ceremonies for the recreational areas restoration project.

County Engineer Cliff Knauer states theres no easy x. Theres just not a good long-term solution, Knau er told commissioners when they met in regular session Thursday. These people will keep having the same problem as long as they keep get ting rain. For the time be ing, if pumping the water helps get them to and from their house, thats what we should keep doing.

Pi tt ma n Staff Report CHIPLEY The Florida Department of Health in Washington County has con rmed a case of pertussis, or whooping cough. The persons family and immedi ate friends have been contacted and are being treated. DOH-Washington advises parents, childcare workers and health care providers to verify the children they care for are properly immunized against whooping cough (pertussis). It is advis able for new parents, grandparents and relatives to be fully immunized before be ing around a baby. Whooping cough, known medically as pertussis, is a highly contagious bacterial infection of the respiratory tract that can be a serious health threat, especially for infants. Family members are most often the transmission source of pertussis to infants. Initial symptoms of pertussis are like those of a cold, including runny nose, sneezing, low-grade fever, and a mild cough. Within two weeks, the cough can be come much worse. Pertussis can infect people of all ages, yet most commonly af fects infants and young children and can be fatal, especially in babies less than one year of age. Children and the elderly with pertussis often have episodes of rapid sporadic coughing followed by a charac teristic intake of breath that sounds like a whoop. These whooping coughing spells can make it hard for a child or older adult to eat, drink, or even breathe. Per tussis is contagious before severe cough ing starts. To schedule an immunization appoint ment, call 638-6240. Some fees may apply. The best way to prevent whooping cough is through immunizations. Infants and children receive a series of four to ve doses of DTaP, a diphtheria, pertus sis, tetanus containing vaccine, with a booster at 10 to 11 years of age. However, protection provided by the childhood se ries fades over time. All persons age 11 to 64 can get a booster called Tdap, which protects against whooping cough, tetanus, and diphtheria. Adults 65 and older who expect to have close contact with a baby younger than 12 months of age should get a dose of Tdap to help protect the baby from pertussis. Additional information about immuni zations and whooping cough (pertussis) can be found at www.immunizeFlorida.com/ or www.cdc.gov/Features/Pertussis/ Residents urged to seek pertussis vaccine Man faces new charges in shooting PANAMA CITY Drug charges have been led against a man authorities said shot and killed his neighbor while welcoming home his newborn son last week. Charles Edward Shisler, 62, is already facing charges of manslaughter and felon in possession of a rearm for the shooting death of Steven Justin Ayers, 33. Ayers and his wife had gathered family members to celebrate the homecoming of their 3day-old baby born on Fathers Day. But the celebration at 2502 Michigan Court ended shortly after 6 p.m. when a stray bullet entered the home from more than 200 feet away, struck Ayers in the back of the head and killed him instantly Shisler had picked up a loaded 9mm pistol in his residence, adjacent to the Ayers home, and the gun discharged, he told investigators. Shisler was in his backyard at 3708 W. 25th St. by the time Bay County Sheriffs Ofce deputies arrived minutes after the shooting, according to arrest reports. During their investigation into the shooting, BCSO found a glass pipe and shake and bake kit in Shislers residence, which both tested positive for methamphetamine residue, authorities said. Ofcers led additional charges of methamphetamine and paraphernalia possession felony offenses. Shisler is scheduled for arraignment in August. Court records indicate he will represent himself. Pertussis can infect people of all ages, yet most commonly affects infants and young children. News BRIEFS CHARLES E.

A4 | Washington County News Saturday, June 28, 2014 By JAN WADDY 747-5072| @JanWaddy1 jwaddy@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY Whether you caught the fish yourself or purchased it from a seafood market, preparations should enhance the natural flavors. Ferrucci Ristorante, 301 Harrison Ave., serves Pesce di Giorno, a fresh fish of the day served with the chefs own creation. We have a fish of the day, but its usually Snapper Piccata because that is what people want the most, said owner and chef Mike Ferrucci. Gulf recreational red snapper season is open through July 14 in Gulf state waters, but Ferrucci gets his fresh fish daily from Tarpon Dock Seafood Market, 234 E. Beach Drive. A native of Southern Italy, Mike Ferrucci was enjoying fresh snapper long before moving to the Gulf Coast, and its still one of the rst things he wants to eat when he returns to visit his Italian family. But, he said, the snapper tastes completely different in both places. Its due to the water itself and what the animals feed on, he said. Both are good, but I grew up on the flavors of the Mediterranean, so to me that snapper has a richer flavor. The Mediterranean waters are saltier than the Gulf. The saltiness of the Snapper Piccata recipe with lemon and capers complements the fish from both waters. I use extra virgin olive oil, only enough to cover the bottom of the pan, Ferrucci said. Some people dont use it because it is tricky. It has a low boiling point, so you dont want it on a full blast burner, but it has a much better flavor. When the fish is completely cooked, add a little butter to the sauce, then pour on the fish and top with fresh basil. Ferrucci also has served Grouper al Cartoccio grouper dropped in a foil pouch with basil, white wine, olive oil and garlic. John Certo II, owner of Andys Flour Power Cafe & Bakery in Panama City Beach, grew up in an Italian family in New York, but he usually turns to a Spanish influenced recipe for fish Fish Veracruz. We put the fish and lime in tin foil. Its a really simple recipe we make at home once a week. We love it simple and delicious, Certo said. The recipe can be made with red snapper or grouper, another Gulf Coast favorite. We are slammed. We have so much sh coming in right now, said Sean Lyon, co-owner of Uncle Ernies Bayfront Grill, 1151 Bayview Ave. We sell about 1,000 pounds of grouper a week. Richard Stewart, retired chairman of the Business and Technology Departments at Gulf Coast State College, supervised the colleges award-winning culinary program. His recipe for Cedar-planked Salmon can be made with any firm-fleshed fish, such as grouper. These planks have been soaked in water, so I dont catch on fire 30 minutes or over an hour and you can do it overnight, Stewart said during a recent cooking demonstration at Somethins Cookin, 93 E. 11th St. Thin cedar planks can be purchased from area stores, or Stewart said, have them made for you at a home supply store. Make sure they are untreated wood. If you decided to have them made you will need to submerge them in water and soak for several days changing water as it gets tannic, when it is clear I then soak the boards in Chardonnay and then freeze. He seasons the fish with Capt. Andersons House Seasoning. Its the best seasoning Ive ever found, Stewart said. I probably give 10 to 15 of these (bottles) away every Christmas. CEDAR-PLANKED SALMON Salmon or any firmfleshed fish Cedar planks Chardonnay Extra Virgin Olive Oil Capt. Andersons House Seasoning Lemon slices Chopped red onion Soak planks for at least 30 minutes in Chardonnay or water. When ready to cook, cover the board in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and then cover the fish with olive oil and sprinkle Capt. Andersons House Seasoning on top of the filet. If you are cooking on the grill or in the oven, cook at 350 degrees for 24 minutes. Cook the fish to 125 degrees and then let it rest for 5 minutes covered with foil. Garnish with lemon slices and some chopped red onion. You can cook skin side down or skinless, however your filet was cleaned.

Community CALENDAR Attorney Generals ofce obtains $225 million settlement in business scam Special to The News Attorney General Pam Bondi, the Federal Trade Commission and the New York Attorney Generals Ofce have obtained nal judgments of $255 mil lion in monetary relief against The Tax Club Inc., a telemarketing operation, and its owners. The judg ments also permanently enjoin The Tax Club and its owners from continu ing certain telemarketing activities. The settlement resolves allegations that The Tax Club enterprise took more than $200 mil lion from thousands of consumers, including Flor ida consumers, through an elaborate small-business development telemarket ing scheme that involved 12 interrelated corporate entities, using dozens of different business names, all controlled by a small group of four individuals. While work-at-home careers are an attractive opportunity for many peo ple, it is imperative that Florida consumers do their research and report any possible scams to my of ce, Bondi said. According to the com plaint, The Tax Club en terprise relied on lead lists obtained from companies in the business of selling business development products and services to identify potential custom ers who may be suscep tible to the telemarketing scheme. The Tax Club sales representatives then contacted consumers and gained their trust by falsely representing to the con sumers that they were af liated with the companies. The sales representatives used high pressure sales tactics and false claims to sell thousands of dollars of additional products and services to the consumers. The complaint further al leges that consumers who bought the products and sought refunds did not get their money back when re quested due to unworkable refund policies and were pressured not to cancel. Before you put money into a work-at-home busi ness opportunity, ask questions to determine if it is legitimate, said Jes sica Rich, director of the FTCs Bureau of Con sumer Protection, adding, We encourage consum ers to read our consumer information to learn how to recognize schemes that promise more than they deliver. The permanent in junctions prohibit certain telemarketing activities, require compliance with the FTCs telemarketing sales rule, and ban The Tax Club defendants from ad vertising, marketing, pro moting, or offering for sale any business coaching ser vices, credit development services or work-at-home opportunities. The nal judgments require The Tax Club defendants to turn over various bank accounts and other assets, and liqui date and sell personal and real property to satisfy the monetary obligations of the judgments.

For more information about Emerald Coast Hos pice, call the Chipley ofce at 638-8787. Special to The News The Northwest Florida Water Management Dis trict recently completed an unprecedented work plan for the establishment of minimum ows and levels (MFLs) in Northwest Flor ida, a vital step for the longterm protection of three regional spring systems in cluding the St. Marks River Rise, Sally Ward Spring and Wakulla Springs. The work plan includes the data, technical informa tion and assessments the District is now using to suc cessfully establish realistic, science-based MFLs. The plan also includes a public involvement and peer re view process, as well as a schedule and cost estimate for development of the MFLs. One of the districts top priorities is establishing a meaningful and realistic MFL program that will help us ensure the long-term protection and sustainabil ity of our water resources, said District Executive Di rector Jon Steverson. This work plan is our road map to achieving a successful MFL program by clearly laying out the steps the District is taking as we move forward with developing these three MFLs for our region. Since 2012, the District has begun work to develop MFLs for ve waterbodies in Northwest Florida: St. Marks River Rise, Wakulla Springs, Sally Ward Spring, the Florida Aquifer in Coastal Franklin County and Jackson Blue Spring. The District anticipates the technical assessment of its rst MFL, St. Marks River Rise, to be completed in 2018. MFLs serve as an im portant tool in protecting Floridas water resourc es, including many of the states treasured springs, said Drew Bartlett, Florida Department of Environ mental Protections Deputy Secretary of Water Policy and Ecosystem Restora tion. The Department appreciates the Districts commitment to establish ing MFLs throughout the region and commends Dis trict staff on the progress theyve made over the past two years. MFLs set water ows, levels and limits necessary to prevent signicant harm to the water resources or ecology of an area from water withdrawals. Florida law (section 373.042(1), Florida Statutes,) requires each water management district to develop and set MFLs to protect the water bodies, including springs, rivers and aquifers, within their region. MFLs are calculated us ing the best available infor mation and science, and the process of developing those MFLs includes a series of steps including identica tion of priority waterbod ies and establishment of the Districts ambitious but achievable schedule; technical analysis of data collection; and nally, the adoption of District rules establishing MFLs.

All proceeds go to the Kay Yow Founda tion, helping raise aware ness for breast cancer and funds for research. The rules are simple. A coach calls out another coach before they receive an ice water shower. Called out people have 48 hours to respond by taking on the cold water challenge or paying up in donations. Those who fail to do so owe the Kay Yow Foundation $250. As sistants owe $100. To help the cause, those who take the ice bath are still asked to pony up a donation of $50 or $25 to the foundation. Chipola womens basketball coach Greg Franklin was the first Chipola coach to take the challenge. He called out Chipola president Dr. Jason Hurst, ath letic director Dr. Steve Givens, assistant athletic director Joc Calloway and cross country coach Rance Massengill.
