Saturday, NOVEMBER 23 2013 Volume 90, Number 64 TDC considers exibility in grants Sweeney resigns from council By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.co m CHIPLEY — A Wausau-based Pit Bull Terrier dog show brings hundreds of visitors from out of state, and the Washington County Tourist Development Council wants to help keep that tradition going strong. Sheree Folmar had withdrawn her application for a grant from the TDC after attending the council’s recent Event Planner Workshop due to the council’s new policy of providing local radio advertising instead of advertising funding. “She brings in people from all over the country, and her best advertising is the national trade magazine,” said Heather Lopez, executive director of the TDC, during Monday’s meeting at the Washington County Chamber of Commerce building in Chipley. “If she advertises locally, there may be some local people who come by to see the dogs, but her main audience comes from out of state.” Folmar said the local radio would not be very useful for her event so she withdrew her application. Lopez said last year the American Dog Breeders Association dog show Folmar hosts is called the Sunshine State American Pit Bull Terrier Club (APBTC) and the event drew enough people to ll up motels in Chipley. “The only reason all the motels were not full was that some of them have a ‘no pets’ policy, so people were sent to Bonifay,” Lopez said. “Now wait a minute,” said TDC board member Ted Everett. “This is a multi-day event that is bringing heads in beds, which is exactly the kind of thing the TDC is here to support.” Everett suggested the TDC help Folmar with advertising in the national magazine as well as offer some local radio advertising. “We have to be exible with our thinking, we don’t want to have our policies written in stone,” Everett said. The board approved the motion See TDC A3 By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.co m CHIPLEY — The third Symposium for Economic Development in Washington County looked at the effect a new industry could have on the local economy. Sponsored by the Washington County Chamber of Commerce, the symposium was held Tuesday at the Panhandle Area Educational Consortium. The meetings bring civic and business leaders together to discuss how to create economic growth in the county. Larry Sassano, president of Florida’s Great Northwest, explained the community role in economic development preparation. Getting an industrial site in front of potential industries means developing the communities’ sites, buildings and infrastructure before hand. “Your county is your product, and you have to get it out there and sell it,” Sassano said. As a representative of Florida’s Great Northwest, Sassano travels to trade shows and site consultants to market the Panhandle to Business, civic leaders discuss economic growth PHOTOS BY RANDAL SEYLER | The News Larry Sassano, right, president of Florida’s Great Northwest, discusses industrial site selection, while Andrew Rhodes, an analyst with Gulf Power, listens during Tuesday’s Symposium on Economic Development.

Earlier this year they all received letters from their Vietnamese Pen Pals — 12 time zone hours away. Each student also received a special souvenir gift, a carefully sculpted sea shell keychain, from the small coastal town of Vung Tau, and had the opportunity to sample authentic Vietnamese candy. The children have just nished writing their return letters on special fall-time stationary to send a long with individual laminated leaf-art pictures, and pictures of themselves. Mrs. Ledet also sent some hot apple cider packs, so their pen-pals can experience something from the U.S., not sold in their own country. The students in both countries will learn about life and customs from their newly found friendships, from countries half way around the world from their own.

Local Washington County News | A3 Saturday, November 23, 2013 Board member Amy Wiwi announced the Cham ber’s plans to hold its rst annual Chili Cook-Off on Dec. 7 as part of the city’s Christmas Fest. “We’re limiting entry to 10 entries, and we already have six,” Wiwi said. “If you have one of the best chili recipes in Washington County, then be sure to sign up.” The cook-off will be held from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Farmers Market Complex in downtown Chipley with chili judging beginning at 5:30 p.m. During the November Chipley City Council meet ing, Everett invited Mayor Linda Cain and the city council members to come serve as judges for the cookoff. The public is invited to attend all of the Christmas Fest events. The annual Christmas Parade will begin at 3:30 p.m. with line-up begin ning at 2:30 p.m. at the old Chipley High School track. Photos with Santa will be available from 2 to 3 p.m. and from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the gazebo downtown. At 5:30 p.m. there will be a reading of the Cajun “The Night Before Christmas” by Kermit Soileau. The Spanish Trail Play house will also stage their program, “A Classic Chipley Christmas,” at 7 p.m. at the historic Chipley High School auditorium, on Dec. 7. There will also be car riage and pony rides, food and drinks and the Wash ington County Historical Museum will be holding an Open House as part of the Christmas festivities. The program’s topic was Affordable Care Act: Key Small Business Provisions, and it was presented by Donna Padgug, a business development specialist with the U.S. Small Business Ad ministration North Florida District Ofce. “Businesses that have fewer than 25 full-time em ployees and that pay aver age annual wages below $50,000 and contribute 50 percent or more toward employees’ self-only health insurance premiums may qualify for a small busi ness tax credit of up to 35 percent,” Padgug said. “In 2014 this credit goes up to 50 percent.” Another change will be the requirement that ag gregate annual health care costs be reported on the W-2. However, the W-2 re porting requirement does not apply to employers re quired to le fewer than 250 Form W-2s in the previous calendar year. “The employee does not have to pay tax on this amount, it is just for infor mational purposes.” Padgug said employees of small businesses will have insurance options in January 2014, with open enrollment now ongoing, through the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP), which will provide a broader-based insurance pool for small businesses to participate in. The SHOP program will offer small businesses in creased purchasing power to obtain a better choice of high-quality coverage at a lower cost. The SHOP program will also pool risks for small groups and reduce adminis trative complexity, reducing costs. In 2016, employers with up to 100 employees will be able to participate. “The more people you have in your pool, the better it is for everyone and it low ers the risk and ultimately it lowers premium costs,” she said.

Financing Arranged (W AC) potential developers. “This year I am working on 52 projects, and so far two of those have actually made announcements,” Sassano said. He often travels to New Jersey, Dallas and Atlanta to meet with site consultants and to prospect for industries that could re locate to Florida. The nal step is clos ing the deal, Sassano said, which includes identify ing state and local incen tives and coordinating with the client to complete the agreement. “When companies look at sites as possible locations, it is more of a process of elimination,” Sassano said. “Companies look to elimi nate as many locations as possible before they actu ally start looking at sites.” The rst phase of site searching begins with a ranking of the site crite ria, mapping the coverage area, issuing a Request for Proposals, and then select ing communities where the business may succeed. Once the sites are vis ited and ranked, negotia tions begin and after due diligence a nal site is se lected. At that point, there is an announcement made and incentive assistance is offered, Sassano said. Andrew Rhodes of Gulf Power explained the eco nomic potential of a 100-job industry locating in Wash ington County by using a real example of an industry that was looking to locate in the Panhandle. A food processing facili ty seeking a 160,000 squarefoot building with 22-foot ceilings and 10-15 acres was looking to locate in the region. The facility needed 660,430 gallons of water per day, which is a requirement beyond the capacity of any water utility in Washington County. “When I saw that, I had to say, ‘we’d love to help you, but we just can’t do it,’” said Ted Everett, executive director of the Chamber of Commerce. “That is a tremendous amount of water,” Sassano said. “There are not very many municipalities in our area that could handle that type of a request.” However, if the county had been capable of host ing such a facility, those 100 jobs would have generated over $5 million in labor in come and another $3.8 mil lion in indirect and induced effect on the local economy, Rhodes said. “The impact is truly regional,” Rhodes said. “Only 36.8 percent of the workforce in Washington County comes from Wash ington County.” Workers for jobs in Washington County also come from Jackson, Holmes, Bay Walton, Cal houn, Escambia, Okaloosa, Leon and Gulf Counties as well, with Jackson County leading the pack with 13.5 percent. “The high tide oats all boats,” Everett said. “Job creation is not just some thing that helps those 100 people, it’s good for the whole county.” GROWTH from page A1 P hotos by RANDAL SEYLEr R | The News Donna Padgug, a business development specialist with the U.S. Small Business Administration North Florida District Ofce, discusses the Affordable Health Care Act at the Washington County Chamber of Commerce’s meeting on Thursday in Chipley.

Sweeney submitted a letter informing the board of his intention to move to Holmes County to reside, although he will continue to work at Falling Waters State Park in Chipley. Lopez said she would research whether or not members of the TDC were required to live in the county that the council serves. Another member, Mark Hess, now also resides out side the county, so Lopez will nd out if they can con tinue to serve on the TDC. The board also put off advertising the open seat on the TDC until the matter can be researched.

In some cases, the abuse was documented by audio recording devices or hidden cameras. When I lived in another state, one youngster recorded ongoing violence in a foster home and sent it to a local TV news station, revealing that people who’d won accolades for taking in children were actually abusive thugs. After reading one such story online last week, I was intrigued by the public commentary, much of which involved people’s own stories of abuse. These harrowing tales recalled memories of beatings and psychological abuse, often in school settings. If you think it doesn’t matter who handles our society’s children, think again. I had a dreadful rst grade teacher. In her “care,” children were whipped, ridiculed, harassed and constantly berated. Her actions deeply affected me. It wasn’t physical violence in my case, but an onslaught of intensely hostile remarks coupled with a publicly humiliating experience. By contrast, my preschool experiences involved gentle, patient people. I remember kindergarten fondly. First grade, not so much. So why would I even remember rst grade today? Because my teacher, a sadistic old bag, made quite an impression on me. She was a teacher, all right. I learned classroom basics better from every other teacher before and since, but she did teach me one thing: how not to treat others. Fortunately, it’s not as easy to get away with mistreating children, the elderly and the disabled as it was in previous generations. I’ve seen videos of nursing home employees striking elderly patients. Maybe if more nursing homes used cameras, employees would reconsider harming people in their care. Some chronic abusers gravitate toward careers leaving them in charge of people weaker than themselves. They may shift from one school, hospital or institution to the next, and by the time their offenses are discovered, there’s an extensive trail of damage. Memories of abuse can last a lifetime. Mistreat a child, and there’s an excellent chance he’ll remember it in old age. On the other hand, most abusers go comfortably to their graves without a moment’s thought for those whose lives they’ve wrecked. Victims of abuse can suffer for years, even after their abuser has died or moved away. Bad memories cause bitterness that can haunt people for life. The bullies win twice, once when perpetrating the harm, and again whenever the victim remembers it. Almost every religion teaches some variation of the Golden Rule. Some act as if it doesn’t apply when dealing with children. But notice that the rule isn’t followed by the words, “unless they’re younger than you.” It also doesn’t say, “unless they’re elderly” or even “unless they’re animals.” The Golden Rule doesn’t have an escape clause. So if you’re dealing with living beings of any age, be careful. The things you say and do can have lifelong effects, both on yourself and others.

The WCSO, along with other members of the North Florida Internet Crimes Against Chil dren Task Force, conducted an operation called “Operation Tur key Hunt” to take all violators into custody who traveled from multiple locations to Walton County with the intent to have sexual relations with a minor.

During the course of the operation, numerous posts were placed on several social net working sites. The undercover proles that were used online were mostly of juvenile females and males with the approximate age of 12 to 13 years old. The online advertisements had been posted to target sus pects who engage in sexual ac tivities with underage minors within the state of Florida. Ten individuals responded to online advertisements through the use of email and electronic communications. According to police, during conversations between some of the suspects and the undercov er ofcer, who was posing as a 12-year-old female’s mother, the suspects solicited the “mother” to engage in sexual activity with the 12-year-old female. Other conversations con sisted of the suspect engaging in conversations with the un dercover ofcer, posing as a 13year-old male, and the suspect soliciting the 13-year-old male to engage in sexual activity, ac cording to police. During the course of the conversations, the suspects ob tained an address, and upon ar rival at the location the suspects were all taken into custody. The suspects’ ages ranged from ear ly 20s to early 50s, and occupa tions run the gamut from activeduty military to steel worker, retail sales, unemployed and a preacher. All suspects were booked at the Walton County Department of Corrections. Each suspect was issued a $1 million bond with the release conditions of no contact with minors and that they be required to wear an electronic tracking device, ac cording to police. To combat the online sexual exploitation of children, many hours were devoted to the plan ning and execution of this oper ation, Adkinson said. In the com ing weeks, additional arrests could be made in connection with Operation Turkey Hunt. In addition to the Walton County Sheriff’s Ofce, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, St Johns County Sheriff’s Ofce, Gainesville Police Department, Escambia County Sheriff’s Ofce, Pen sacola Police Department, Bay County Sheriff’s Ofce, Talla hassee Police Department and Crestview Police Department all participated in the task force investigation.
