A HISTORY LESSON

Playhouse presents ‘Daddy’s Dyin’’

Tuesday night the goal was to work through the first two topics: Strengths and Weaknesses. The audience participated in a discussion of the pros and cons of Washington County. “We need to know what is out there affecting us positively and negatively,” said Chamber Executive Director Ted Everett. “Then we can begin creating a road map for the future of the county.” The strengths identified for

TALLAHASSEE — Some state lawmakers aren’t ready to accept a study’s conclusion that expanding gambling would have a minimal impact on jobs and the Florida economy. The Spectrum Gaming Group presented the $388,845 study before the state House Select Committee on Gaming Wednesday. Expanding slots and destination casinos would only have a “moderately positive” effect on the economy and a “mild” effect on wages and employment in the state, said Joseph Weinert, Spectrum’s vice president. The study contends that the state’s economy is so large and the counties most likely to get casinos — Broward, Hillsborough, Miami-Dade and Orange — are so populous that the impact would be negligible. That wasn’t the answer Rep. Jim Waldman, the ranking Democrat on the committee, wanted to hear. He noted the job increases would be in the thousands regardless of whether the local population was big enough to make them statistically insignificant. The study found opening up Broward, Hillsborough, MiamiDade and Orange to stand-alone casinos and slot machines would add more than 18,000 jobs in the “leisure and hospitality” and “other services” sectors. And almost

Ellis, Brook discuss strengths and weaknesses of county Second economic development meeting held By RANDAL SEYLER

638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY — County leaders and officials began discussing the strengths and weaknesses of the area during Tuesday’s Economic Development Symposium.

The symposium was the second in an ongoing series of meetings sponsored by the Washington County Chamber of Commerce. “We want to develop a plan, a vision of what we want the county to be in the future,” said Jim Brook, executive director of Opportunity Florida. Part of the process of developing that plan will include working through a S.W.O.T. analysis — a process of discussing the county’s Strengths, Weaknesses Opportunities and Threats, Brook said.

Board from page A1 changes. “I believe the time needed for getting a new person up to speed on the planning commission takes time,” DeRuntz said. “With term limits, we would be losing that institutional knowledge every eight years.” DeRuntz also said he thought the 10-year span between service was excessive. “We have criteria for selecting board members in place,” DeRuntz said. “If the board doesn’t feel as if that criteria is working, they can certainly change it.” Currently, county planning commissioners serve to represent the district of the county in which they live, and their terms run concurrent with the county commissioner who represents their district. “I came before the board several months ago to address this problem with the planning commission,” Anderson said. “It wasn’t just me who worked on this proposed legislation, it was also Mr. Bush, Mr. DeRuntz and Mr. Corbin.” Anderson said he appreciated Corbin’s assistance and his willingness to address problems. “Thank you, Mr. Corbin, for rising up and dealing with the issues.”

“I felt during our meeting that you were in favor of these proposals,” Anderson told the commissioners. Anderson said he had been mistreated by the planning commission earlier this year when he was seeking a zoning change for a property that was under consideration as a potential new location for the AmVets lodge. He had gone before the board to discuss his concerns, and the outcome of those discussions had been the work to limit the terms of the planning commissioners. Anderson also said that there are no African-American planning commissioners, which means that a portion of the county population is not being represented properly. The planning commission makes recommendations to the county commissioners, which are usually approved by the board with little discussion or dissent, Anderson said. “I don’t know that this board has ever not approved a recommendation by the planning commission, which is amazing,” Anderson said. “Normally, the five of you can’t even agree on what day it is.” He thanked the board for al-

lowing him to participate in drafting the proposed code changes. “I appreciate you going through the process and allowing the public to participate,” Anderson said. Planning Commissioner Jim Ackerman told the board he would prefer not to be considered an employee of the county, but if he were to be so considered, he would like to have the same benefits as other employees such as health insurance. “If we are supposed to be employees, tell us what parts of the 83-page employee handbook apply to us,” Ackerman said. “I do think the Conflict of Interest section should apply to the planning commission.” If the planning commissioners are not behaving in a respectful manner, the BOCC has the ability to correct that now, Ackerman said. Finding volunteers to serve on the planning commission is not always easy, Ackerman added. “We have gone six months without members, and sometimes we wouldn’t even have a quorum.” “I think we have been negligent in the past, but now that it has come to light, I think we are more prepared to have discus-

Resident Jim Town suggested the board consider off-setting the terms of the planning commis-

sioners and the county commissioners by a year. “That way, if you have a new county commissioner, he has a year of experience when the time comes to make the reappointment. I would suspect that a new commissioner has a different perspective on things after having served on the board for 12 months,” Town said. The second and final public hearing on the proposed changes will take place at 9 a.m. during the Oct. 24 meeting of the Board of County Commissioners.

History from page A1 Washington County included fine medical facilities, interstate access and railroad and the quality of life found here in the Panhandle. The weaknesses included lack of water/sewer infrastructure and the lack of properties available for industrial development. The Chamber of Commerce went through a similar process in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Former Chamber Director O.L. “Ole” Ellis Jr. opened the symposium by telling the audience about his early experiences with the Washington County Chamber and some of the early successes of the county, including WestPoint Home and Wal-Mart. “When we look back, we can learn from past successes, and see what we did right, and what we did wrong,” Ellis said. One of the early tasks the chamber faced in working on economic development was the preparation of a slide show to use to promote the county before both state officials and potential industries which may be looking to locate in Florida. “We had to prepare an inventory of our assets — WashingtonHolmes Technical Center, the Department of Transportation,

the Panhandle Area Educational Consortium, the Interstate — and then we worked on our marketing technology,” Ellis said. That technology in 1980 included a slide show, which eventually was upgraded to a VHS cassette. Ellis also stressed the importance of cooperation between the city and county officials in landing important economic developments such as WestPoint Home and Wal-Mart. It took work between the County Commissioners, the City Council and the Planning Commissioners to put together the properties, to fund the needed upgrades to utilities, and to present a professional front to the potential industries. “If a local effort is not in place, then the desired results will not be achieved,” he said. “Above all else, industries are looking for stability,” said Terry Ellis, manager of WestPoint Home and son of Ole Ellis. A strong commitment by local business and civic leaders is absolutely necessary for economic development success, Everett said. “The reason we were able attract people back in the ‘80s was we had land and a building we could show them,” Everett said.

O.L. “Ole” Ellis Jr. refers to his original “Powerpoint” presentation as he recalls early economic development efforts in Washington County during Tuesday’s symposium on economic development. “Right now, if an industry were to contact me, I don’t have anything to show them. Nothing.” Everett said the adage “homes follow jobs, and retail follows homes” applies to economic development, and to have growth

in Washington County, the county has to increase the number of jobs it has to offer. “Right now, Washington County is exporting 75 percent of its workforce,” Everett said. “Most of our people have to go out of the

county to work.” “The nine most important factors in economic development are attitude, attitude, attitude; commitment, commitment, commitment; and patience, patience patience,” Ole Ellis said.

gaming from page A1 1,500 new businesses would open in those sectors. Locally, the Ebro Greyhound Park has long sought slot machines and in 2011 Washington County voters, through a local referendum, approved putting them at the dog track, which also has a card room. The study found adding slot machines would increase the number of businesses in the county by only 2 percent and would increase jobs in the “leisure and hospitality” and “other services” sectors by 3.5 percent (21 jobs). It would also increase wages in those sectors by about 3 percent. The numbers, however, don’t reveal whole truth. The Ebro track owners announced plans last year to install 2,000 slots at a $300 million facility, which would include a hotel with up to 500 rooms as well as retail, restaurants and an entertainment venue. The hotel alone would likely employ dozens of locals. But all those plans have been halted as owners wait for the Legislature to act on gaming’s expansion.  

State Rep. Steve Precourt, R-Orlando, said the economic impact would be sizable in a less populous state and was most interested in the study’s mention of “winners and losers” for the four counties that could see new casinos. “Being from Orange County, I presume some of those counties could be big winners and some of those counties could be big losers,” Precourt said. A Spectrum representative clarified that groups of individuals and businesses would most likely impacted, not whole counties, noting the casinos compete with some businesses while complementing others. In rural Washington County, the Ebro track’s expansion could steal hotel guests and restaurant patrons from existing facilities, but it would offer locals more dining options, draw in more tourists and create more jobs, likely at higher pay. It can come down to a matter of perspective, said Michael Pollock, Spectrum’s managing director. If a casino comes to town, it can increase the prevailing wage rate, drawing workers from a neighboring county with a weaker economy. From the workers’ standpoint it’s a positive, but from the “Winners and losers” State Rep. Erik Fresen, R-Miami, businesses standpoint it’s a negative, pointed out that any single business he said.   moving into a heavily populated area will have a minimal impact on the ‘Rorschach test’ economy. The study also was criticized as “It would seem to me, statistically, supporting all sides and thus supportfrom a comparison standpoint, that the ing no sides. employment effect of any industry in“As I’ve read the report and heard jected into a smaller county is always the reactions to the report … it has going to be greater than it is in a larger sort of become this session’s version county,” he said. of a Rorschach test, where everyone

can stare at the ink blot and see what they want to see,” said state Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach. Pollock agreed that the report’s complexity allows people to support or refute their particular positions. “There’s never going to be a simple thumbs up or thumbs down,” he said. State Rep. Joe Gibbons, D-Hallandale Beach, said the study gives legislators little to latch onto, as they look to craft and pass a comprehensive gaming bill during the 2014 legislative session. “It seems to me that the effects are almost so negligible that it’s going to be very difficult for us to drag something out of this to make a hard decision,” Gibbons said. The study is still in draft form, though the final version was due Oct. 1. Spectrum decided to hold back on submitting the final report while it worked to correct and update numbers on the economic and fiscal impacts of expanded gaming. The final version should be out in November.  

‘Decoupling’

State Rep. Dana Young, R-Tampa, brought up the issue of “decoupling” — no longer requiring pari-mutuel facilities to run a minimum number of races to operate a card room. She seemed to make a case for the move. She asked if there were any social costs to removing the racing minimums requirement. The Spectrum representative seemed baffled by the question and Young responded, laughing, “The right answer is no.”

Gov.

Lawmaker worries about revenue leaving the state By MATTHEW BEATON

522-5114 | @matthewbeaton mbeaton@pcnh.com TALLAHASSEE — A state senator is concerned about the gambling revenue leaving Florida, as Panhandle residents place their bets in cities like Biloxi, Miss., and Las Vegas. State Sen. Bill Montford, D-Tallahassee, on Monday volleyed questions at the authors of a $388,845 gaming study commissioned by the Florida Legislature earlier this year, wanting to know how much gaming money leaves the state annually and what can be done to recapture it if gambling were expanded. “Florida is a very diverse state. … Did you take into consideration the great diversity of the state, because I know a lot of people in North Florida travel out of state to gamble?” he said during a Senate gaming panel meeting. The authors, part of the New Jersey-based Spectrum Gaming Group, told him $1.5 billion leaves Florida annually and is spent in outside casinos. The figure only includes casinos within a four-hour driving radius from the state line. The study’s authors said gamblers are more likely to leave Florida if they are close to outside casinos. Montford, whose district includes Calhoun, Franklin, Gulf and Liberty counties, worried South Florida’s robust gaming revenues would skew the view of the state, not recognizing North Florida has very limited gaming options. His questions were just a few the Spectrum representatives fielded during the three-hour meeting. Committee chairman Sen. Garrett Richter, R-Naples, emphasized the second part of the study was only a draft and the finalized version is expected in about a month. The study was due Oct. 1, but Spectrum asked for more time because several of its economic calcula-

tions needed to be updated. Richter was gracious about the delay. “The only thing for sure you know and I think certainly folks that work with financial models and forecasts models [know is] … it’s wrong. That’s the only thing you really, really know,” Richtersaid. “The charge is to make it a little bit wrong and not a lot of it wrong.” Richter pointed out the study was only a “resource” and the committee should use it that way as it prepares to overhaul Florida’s gaming laws heading into the 2014 legislative session. Some senators, however, appeared frustrated the draft concluded gambling’s expansion would only have a minimal impact on Florida jobs and the state economy. Sen. Tom Lee, R-Brandon, said the study focuses strictly on the economics, but there are moral issues at play and mused whether he should “keep my powder dry” or wait until the final version of the study came out to have that debate. “We’re kind of premature in terms of coming to any conclusions and yet … there was a major conclusion made in the report about the impact of gaming in Florida,” Lee said. Sen. John Thrasher, R-St. Augustine, went a step further by pressing the Spectrum representatives to admit that economic impacts would be significant at a very local level, and they agreed. Lee also suggested Florida’s tax rates are too low, based on the study’s finding the state could increase its revenue significantly by implementing the same rates as Pennsylvania, which is 54 percent for slots and 15 percent for tables games. The Florida tax rate on slots is 35 percent.   The Spectrum representatives acknowledged Lee’s suggestion but warned tax rates are a “balancing act” and raising them could reduce investment and jobs in the gambling industry.

Shop wisely in the spiritual marketplace At the grocery store, shoppers are faced with decisions. We’re fortunate to live in a nation with a mind-boggling array of food choices, but many of those choices are nutritionally disastrous. Sure, there might be 15 different brands of snack cakes, but that doesn’t mean they’re healthy. Shopping often involves choosing between chemicalladen garbage and SHANNON food your body can SEYLER actually use. Faithfully Yours Much like a supermarket, the spiritual marketplace is teeming with variety. To understand the extent of that variety, get a phone book from any major U.S. city. Flip to “churches” in the yellow pages. You’ll find scores of Christian churches, but remember that for each one listed, there are plenty more that aren’t. Then add in the non-Christian religions. Also keep in mind that many people are believers, but don’t belong to any specific organized religion. Count them in, too. Then factor in the religious groups that operate primarily by TV, radio, mail or the internet. Soon, your head will be spinning with spiritual choices — and that’s just in one city. Spiritual choices are nothing new. Even in the ancient world, there were a staggering number of religions. During the formative years of Christianity, when St. Paul entered the spiritual marketplace, it was already crowded. Selecting beliefs, whether now or in ancient times, is like wandering into an open-air market with a bewildering supply of vendors and wares. In such a busy marketplace, how does one shop wisely?

NON-PROFIT OF THE WEEK: BAY AREA FOOD BANK For over 30 years, the Bay Area Food Bank has been feeding the hungry in Florida, Alabama and Mississippi. This group operates over 700 feeding programs at more than 550 agencies. The Panhandle Branch, located in Milton, FL, serves seven Florida counties, including Washington and Holmes Counties. Their backpack and summer food service programs help feed hungry school children who lack access to food when schools are closed. Mobile pantry programs help deliver food to even more communities. Additionally, the organization provides emergency food supplies during natural disasters. The Bay Area Food Bank has distributed literally millions of pounds of food to people right here in our area. The Bay Area Food Bank, Panhandle Branch http://www.bayareafoodbank.org/ 5709 Industrial Boulevard Milton, FL 32583 (850) 626-1332 Remember that the loudest vendor doesn’t always have the best goods. If you’ve ever encountered pushy sales representatives or even watched a commercial, you know that claims are often exaggerated. Just because a religion has a flashy spokesperson doesn’t mean it’s the best. And bigger isn’t always better. Consider a TV set. You’re watching the same broadcast whether you have a small, inexpensive TV or one covering your entire wall. The big screen is fancier, but in the end, it’s the exact same program. You can connect with God whether alone, in a group with only five members, or in a congregation of thousands. Shop for good nutrition, whether physical or spiritual. Some teachings seem temporarily satisfying, like a candy bar, but eventually do more harm than good. Select beliefs that nourish your soul instead of leaving you empty and dissatisfied.

At a grocery store, candy is usually more attractively packaged than raw vegetables, but which provides better nutrition? Shiny packaging, sugar coating and an energetic spokesperson doesn’t lead to optimal nutritional or spiritual health. Then again, just because something’s new doesn’t mean it’s worthless. Have you used a product for years, only to discover a new one is far better? Maybe you’ve used Product A for decades, but someone proves to you that Product B is better. It’s silly to refuse giving up Product A simply to maintain tradition. There’s no sense in robbing yourself of spiritual experiences just because they’re new to you. In the spiritual marketplace, your business is constantly being courted, so be a smart shopper. Whether in a supermarket or a house of worship, take the time to examine products, claims and choices carefully.
