County prepares for Karen From Staff Reports CHIPLEY â€” Washington County officials were preparing for Tropical Storm Karen on Friday. â€œWeâ€™ve already drafted a local State of Emergency declaration, and I will be signing that shortly so we donâ€™t have to call the Board of County Commissioners in on the weekend,â€? Public Safety Director Lynne Abel said. â€œWeâ€™re just doing that as a precaution.â€? Abel said the county is on call with the National Weather Service. â€œThe biggest impact we are expecting is rain, but there is always the potential for a tornado to spin up,â€? she said. â€œIt looks like this is going to be a weekend event, and we arenâ€™t seeing that we will need to close schools on Monday, but you never can tell.â€? On Thursday, Gov. Rick Scott called FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate to request all needed federal resources would be available for Tropical Storm Karen. The storm poses a threat to the Florida Panhandle and could strengthen into a Category 1 Hurricane. A hurricane watch has already been issued for Escambia, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Walton, Bay, and Gulf counties.

Gaming draft report released

â€œThey canâ€™t wait in the cafeteria at that time, so if it is raining or cold, I donâ€™t know what we are going to do with them,â€? Whitaker added. Whitaker said the bus dismissal schedule had been changed in hopes of giving teachers more after school time to work, but that is not the case. â€œWith the late dismissal of students, we donâ€™t
PANAMA CITY â€” Whatâ€™s all the fuss about? That could be the summation of the state Legislatureâ€™s draft report on the social and economic impacts of expanding gambling in Florida â€” and it could serve as a douse of cold water for both advocates and opponents. The report, however, will be revised and some of the final numbers could be â€œway different,â€? a state official said Tuesday. The study, conducted by Spectrum Gaming Group, will surely disappoint some who tout gamblingâ€™s expansion as a panacea for Floridaâ€™s jobs and economy. â€œOverall, Spectrum believes that the expansion of casino gambling, whether on a small scale or very large scale, would have, at best, a moderately positive impact on the state economy,â€? the study said. The report agreed that gamingâ€™s expansion would likely increase the stateâ€™s tax revenue â€” provided it attracted tourists and kept casino tax rates above sales tax levels â€” but the sheer size of Floridaâ€™s economy would blunt any large-scale effect on jobs and personal income. â€œThere are likely to be only mild positive impacts on local and statewide employment and wages, however,â€? the study said.

Teacher concerned about bus schedule By RANDAL SEYLER
638-0212 | @WCN_HCT firstname.lastname@example.org CHIPLEY â€” Kate Smith Elementary School Teacher Marla Whitaker expressed her concerns about the bus dismissal schedule to the Washington County School Board on Monday during a special meeting. â€œWeâ€™re dismissing children and they are sitting there 30-40
neighbors to effectively address the criminal activity in our community.â€? The local Crime Stoppers program has been very effective in helping solve crimes like, burglaries, busting drug dealers and the apprehension of many wanted individuals, Crews said. â€œI am looking forward to working together with the citizens of Washington County and pledges to be ef-
minutes waiting on a bus,â€? Whitaker said. â€œI have concerns about the safety of having the children sitting there waiting that long.â€? â€œStudents are being dismissed at 2:30 p.m., and the late buses arrive at 3:15 p.m.,â€? Whitaker said. The number of students waiting to ride on one of the five late-arriving buses is about 200, she said, and there are only three or four teachers on hand to watch over the waiting children.

EBRO â€” A new study on gaming in Florida predicts six dog tracks, including Ebro Greyhound Park, will end live racing if the state eliminates a law requiring tracks run a minimum number of races to operate a poker room. The study, which is only a draft report by the Spectrum Gaming Group, was released Tuesday and is the second part of a review of gambling in Florida. The state Legislature commis-
sioned the $388,845 report earlier this year. Dog tracks and animal advocates alike have pushed for â€œdecouplingâ€? â€” removing ties between live parimutuel races and the right to operate a card room â€” for some time. The study concludes that if the Legislature passed decoupling legislation, Ebro would end live races within three years. But the track disagrees. Mark Hess, associate manager, said as long as greyhound racing is profitable, Ebro will continue to

Change is in your hands Human beings are naturally creative. We enjoy making things. Some people enjoy knitting or quilting, while others might bake cakes or do woodworking. Still others prefer more mechanical pursuits like building custom vehicles, clocks or radios. Regardless of whether you’re an amateur or have turned your hobby into a profitable venture, there’s probably something you like making. ‘ But did you know that there’s something else you SHANNON can make? SEYLER In this case, I’m Faithfully Yours not referring to a handcrafted product, but instead, to your own success, well-being and happiness. Some individuals operate under the mistaken impression that life is a series of random happenings. They don’t grasp that they’re often responsible for the circumstances that befall them. While there are a few truly random events, such as sudden death or natural disaster, most events in life aren’t random at all. When people examine their lives carefully, they’ll begin seeing patterns. This includes patterns of setting oneself up for success or failure. But even if you’ve established some bad patterns, there’s hope. You can make new patterns. Think about sewing a garment. Suppose the finished item turns out poorly, and after examining it carefully, you realize the pattern was faulty. It wasn’t your lack of skill, but simply a
NONPROFIT OF THE WEEK: LOVEISRESPECT.ORG Based on a partnership between Break the Cycle and the National Dating Abuse Helpline, this is an online resource that educates people about healthy relationships. It particularly focuses on youth who may not realize that stalking, harassment, possessiveness, aggression, and financial, emotional and sexual manipulation are inappropriate behaviors that constitute abuse. In a nation where one in three teens is threatened or abused by a partner each year, it’s important to let young people know that, just like adults, they don’t have to put up with it. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, so this is a good time to remember the teens, as well as adults, who are victims of abusive relationships. loveisrespect.org text “loveis” to 22522 1-866-331-9474 bad pattern. Now, would you keep that same pattern and keep producing one ill-fitting garment after another? Of course not. You’d toss out the pattern and find a new one, one that actually works. If you don’t like the patterns in your life, then change them. I know people who rack up bad relationships so frequently you’d think they collected them as a hobby. They subconsciously seek out the most ill-suited people imaginable, people guaranteed to treat them like garbage. The minute they ditch one, they hook up with another. If this sounds like you, it’s time to throw out that bad pattern permanently. Are you a “loser magnet” who surrounds yourself with abusive people? Do your supposed “loved ones” walk all over you? If so, you’re using a bad pattern. Yes, you may have unwittingly created
these self-destructive patterns, but as the creator of those patterns, you also have the power to destroy them and make a fresh start. Try detecting the negative patterns in your life, and then put your honest effort into changing them. This can be a spiritual exercise as well as a psychological one. Just as the Creator can change or destroy creations, to a certain extent, so can we. This is a divine gift. Some people make the error of waiting for divine intervention in their lives while refusing to help themselves. But with the gift of creativity, we’re already capable of creating and discarding our own patterns. There’s no lifelong waiting necessary, no idle daydreaming about being rescued. The power to both create and change patterns is in your hands. You can use that power to change your life.

As the newly elected president, Crews appointed a law enforcement coordinator, Lt. Chris Welch of the State Fire Marshal’s Office, to assist with Crime Stoppers. Lt. Welch is excited to be on the team and brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience, Crews said. The chief also plans on promoting the Washington County Crime Stoppers program with a renewed vigor and enthusiasm. “We want to incorporate the Crime Stoppers Program into the lives of our students at school and within our communi-
gaming from page A1
ties. Students can report school incidents anonymously or pass on any information they feel should be reported, such as bullying, criminal mischief, drugs and/or weapons on campus. We need to educate our young people on how they too can become Crime Stoppers,” Crews said. Anyone with information regarding a crime or wanted person can call 638-TIPS. All calls to the Crime Stoppers of Washington County with information remain anonymous. Crime Stopper tips leading to an arrest will receive a cash reward.
It pointed out the areas being considered for major gaming expansion — notably South Florida — are counties with large populations already and “would not represent a large expansion of their local economies ... .” The study acknowledged gambling’s potential social costs, most notably addiction, but said it found these costs “would not change dramatically, especially since gambling opportunities are already widespread across Florida.” ”Upon systematic examination, the research fails to demonstrate that gambling expansion has changed the prevalence of gambling related problems,” the study said. It noted research on social cost is limited and the numbers can vary depending on how social cost is defined. The study said long-range studies spanning several years are needed to yield definitive results on gambling’s impact on public health and welfare. Only the study’s third draft was released Tuesday, though the final report was slated to come out. State officials spent the day sorting through the study’s problems and ultimately concluded to release only the draft report and extend Spectrum’s deadline

situation. “Lets have Mr. Taylor and Mr. Park bring us back a solution to the October workshop.” The board also approved the low bid of $70,980 for the renovations to the Chipley High School gymnasium lobby expansion. The low bidder was Anderson & Associations Construction of Panama City. The next meeting of the Washington County School Board is set for Oct. 14 with a workshop beginning at 3 p.m., to be followed by the regular October meeting beginning at 5 p.m.
Senate President Don Gaetz, RNiceville, released a statement, along with the report, at the end of day Tuesday, saying the problems likely would be sorted out by Nov. 1. He said the state economist had asked for some clarifications on the tables in the report, but emphasized lawmakers were not trying to tinker with the numbers. “The Legislature has not and will not request that any outcomes (in the study) be changed,” he said. John Guthrie, staff director for the state Senate Gaming Committee, said it was a hectic day as they reviewed the study, and said ultimately Gaetz and state Sen. Garrett Richter, R-Naples, felt it was more important to get it right rather than release the final version by the deadline. The Legislature paid $388,845 for the study and the first part of it was released in July. “Some of the numbers are going to change, perhaps significantly, in the final report,” Guthrie said, adding, “There are issues with the economic analysis.” Guthrie said some of the numbers would be “way different” when the final version comes out.
study from page A1 run the dogs. And he believes racing will continue to make money, even if decoupling passes. “We’re in a unique situation,” he said. “I mean there are millions of tourists that visit Panama City Beach every year, and they come from states that don’t have greyhound racing, and they really enjoy coming out and watching the dogs run.” During the summer months, he said 75 percent of the people at the track are tourists and this year in June and July attendance approached 2,000 some nights. “Ebro does support the decoupling of racing,” Hess said. “The main reason for that is it allows us to do business like a normal business would … it allows us to run days that are profitable and not run days that aren’t profitable.” The track is required to run 167 performances during the state’s fiscal year, from July through June,

but the track applied for 178 performances to ensure it has a cushion. Each performance includes eight races. Hess said the number of performances would likely drop to around 100 if decoupling took effect. That’s a 44 decrease, based on the 178 performances it applied for this year. “We don’t know for sure (what would happen),” Hess said. “We would have to take a good look at it, and we’re not really going to spend the time to look at it until decoupling really exists.” Bleak picture The draft report paints a particularly bleak picture for greyhound racing, an industry that has been in precipitous decline for years. It predicts six of the state’s 13 greyhound tracks would end racing if decoupling passed. Including dog tracks, the state has a total of 25 pari-mutuel

Costing taxpayers The report found that greyhound tracks are not contributing to state tax revenue, but rather are costing it money, when tax credits and regulatory expenses are factored in. The industry received $12.3 million in tax credits in fiscal year 2012-13. The study estimated it cost the state $4.1 million to regulate greyhound racing in fiscal year 2011-12, while receiving only $3.1 million in tax revenue — a $1 million net loss. If other non-operating regulatory expenses were considered, the state would have lost an additional $3.3 million, the study said, noting Ebro only paid $21,545 in state taxes. “Literally the taxpayers are

taking a loss on greyhound racing today,” said Carey Theil, executive director of GREY2K USA. Theil, who is cited in the study, heads an organization fighting to end greyhound racing and to ensure dogs still in the industry are treated humanely. A staunch proponent of decoupling, he plans to emphasize the toll the greyhound industry is taking not just on dogs but state coffers when he meets with lawmakers heading into next year’s legislative session. The Legislature plans to craft a comprehensive gaming proposal that will draw heavily on the Spectrum study and Theil wants to see decoupling included in it. He said it has “good chance” of getting in. “Every taxpayer in the state is losing money so that dogs can run around a track while no one bets,” Theil said, adding that decoupling “is something that shouldn’t be controversial.”
