Council talks code enforcement Mayor wants fake flowers removed from lawn By RANDAL SEYLER
638-0212 | @WCN_HCT firstname.lastname@example.org CHIPLEY â€” Chipley City Council members discussed the need for a private property standards ordinance at the councilâ€™s June workshop on Thursday. Mayor Linda Cain had a list of 52 properties from around the city that she said need cleaning up, and the primary property she was concerned with was a house on Main Street that has its lawn decorated with artificial flowers. â€œThose silk flowers look ridicu-

He said the artificial flowers were planted in a flowerbed in the lawn, but Cook disagreed. â€œThey arenâ€™t in a flowerbed, theyâ€™re just strewn about in the yard.

He asked the council members to look at the code and make a list of concerns they have about private property standards, then they can discuss how to respond to those concerns. â€œOne issue we have is how do we recover any funds we spend on cleaning up properties?â€? Miner said.
City Attorney Michelle Taggart told the council the Florida Supreme Court recently ruled that municipalities are not allowed to supersede mortgages with their liens, which makes recovery of fines more difficult. â€œLook at the codes and see if there is anything we can do to reduce debris or dilapidated

Sen. Gaetz rips feds for sequestration PANAMA CITY — State Senate President Don Gaetz blasted the “dysfunctional” federal government Wednesday, saying the “mindless” sequestration cuts might force him and House Speaker Will Weatherford to call a special SEN. DON session to remedy funding cuts. GAETZ While meeting with The Panama City News Herald’s editorial board, Gaetz also said the Legislature shouldn’t be reconvened to work out a solution on implementing the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare); that he supports greater attention being paid to Apalachicola Bay; and that the Senate will hold hearings on a recent $52 million deal approved by Citizens Property Insurance Corp.
Sequestration Gaetz, a Niceville Republican, said he was to receive a list
Wednesday of state services and projects that will lose federal funding under sequestration. These include the National Guard and mental health and substance abuse programs. “Your federal government in Washington is dysfunctional; it’s the Hatfields and the McCoys. They can’t pass a budget and so they’ve got a mindless sequestration,” he said. So, there’s a looming question, Gaetz said, whether he and Weatherford should call a special session to bail out the federal government. Gaetz laid out Florida’s options to deal with the sequestration cuts — shortchange programs and those who have contracts through those programs; raise taxes; deplete the state’s cash reserves; or reroute other state monies to the affected programs. Gaetz already sounded a warning on sequestration earlier in the week. He and Weatherford wrote Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, asking that federal military technicians be exempted from the furloughs, which start July 8. The Florida National Guard would be affected by the seques-
tration cuts, and their service is vital during and after disasters, the letter said. But, Gaetz said, there’s been no response from Washington. “They have a Dumpster on Capitol Hill,” Gaetz said. “There’s a sign on the side of it that says ‘input from the states.’ That Dumpster gets filled during the week, and then dumped in the Potomac River on Friday nights.” Gaetz, more seriously, said letters also were sent to Florida’s congressional delegation. He said every member of the delegation should “think as a Floridian” and apply common sense to the cuts. “Sequestration is not just a federal issue, but it’s a state issue — and it suddenly becomes a local issue, especially if a hurricane hits Northwest Florida,” he said.
ObamaCare Gaetz was adamant the state Legislature shouldn’t reconvene to pass a deal on implementing the Affordable Care Act because the parties are too far apart. He said there needs to be a “landing zone.” “The governor, as you know, has gone from: ‘No, no, hell no’ to
‘Yes, please, I’ll take two scoops on Medicaid expansion,’ ” he said. The House, meanwhile, doesn’t want to expand Medicaid or take the billions in federal dollars that comes with it, and the Senate wants the money but doesn’t want to expand Medicaid; instead it would use the money to allow Floridians to buy private insurance. “You really have three parties, none of whom look at this the same way,” Gaetz said.
Apalachicola Bay Gaetz also is ready to put a greater state focus on the ailing Apalachicola Bay, which has seen a steep decline in its oyster harvests, largely because of the lack of freshwater flowing down the Apalachicola River. “People are now beginning to understand how significant and important that issue is,” he said. Gaetz said he expects more attention will be paid to it in the future, and to solve it there needs to be interstate cooperation with Georgia, where the water feeding the bay originates. “We ought to be banging on the door of the governor of Georgia all the time and trying to figure out
what we can do that would make it worthwhile for them to cooperate with us,” he said. The state has taken some feeble steps, including $3 million in the state budget for the bay, some of which will monitor water flow down the river. Gaetz even gave a creative suggestion on how to gain leverage against Georgia for more water flow. He said that plenty of people who use the state-subsidized Citizens Insurance aren’t residents. “Now, I’m not talking about starting a trade war, but I do think that I’ve learned in business and a little bit in politics that if negotiation is to occur somebody has to want something or they have to want something to stop,” he said. Gaetz said he and state Sen. David Simmons, R-Altamonte Springs, who chairs the Banking and Insurance Committee, worked on the idea to allow for “differential rates” for the insurance program. “I think we’re in a position to play that card, and it needs to become very important for the governor, and not just him, it needs to become very important for Will Weatherford and me,” he said.

“I understand how you may feel about alcohol sales, and the consumption of alcohol, but in this country, you are allowed to make a choice, whether or not you want to purchase or consume alcohol,” Anderson said. Anderson said he had called DeRuntz’s office and been told that he could not sell alcohol under the county’s current zoning laws. “I would like someone to sit down with me and explain why it’s okay to sell a six-pack three miles north of town, but I can’t negotiate for a piece of property to move a fraternal organization to,” Anderson said.
DeRuntz said he would be more than happy to explain the ordinances to Anderson. “What we have here are a couple of issues. First there is the property zoning, then there is the alcohol sales issue.” The property zoning became residential during the ongoing process of creating the Future Land Use Map, which began back in 1975, Commissioner Roger Hagan said. “It’s not just us, a lot of people have sat in these chairs during this process.” The property would have been operating as a fraternal organization as a nonconforming usage, DeRuntz said, which
meant that when it ceased to be a fraternal organization the property reverted back to its original zoning, which was low density residential. As for selling and consuming alcohol on premises, the rules in Washington County are pretty clear, DeRuntz said. “It’s prohibited. There is an exception for convenience stores, but clubs and restaurants are not allowed to sell alcohol.” Anderson complained that the real estate listing did not match the county’s designated zoning, but real estate consultant Jim Town, who was in the audience, said that it was the
real estate broker’s job to make sure the zoning was correctly identified for a listing. “A lot of real estate agents do get in touch with Mike (DeRuntz) and make sure to get the proper land use.” Town noted that even if the county rezoned the proposed property as commercial, that would not mean that Anderson would automatically get a liquor license. DeRuntz said he spoke with Anderson again on Thursday attempting to set up a meeting with him and his real estate agent. “We’ll try and get his issues resolved.”

NOAA resets snapper season By VALERIE GARMAN
747-5076 | @valeriegarman firstname.lastname@example.org PANAMA CITY BEACH â€” Recreational anglers in the Gulf of Mexico will have a 28-day season for red snapper in federal waters regardless of what state shoreline they fish. Officials from the National Atmospheric and Oceanic Administration announced the change Monday after a judgeâ€™s ruling last week that forced the agency to re-evaluate its management procedures. U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen, of Brownsville, Texas, overturned an emergency rule
that gave NOAA authority to set separate federal seasons for recreational snapper harvest in the five Gulf states. Hanen said the rule was used to penalize anglers in states that enact fishing seasons that do not match the federal season, which include Florida, Texas and Louisiana. â€œThat wasnâ€™t the intent, but that was the judgeâ€™s ruling,â€? NOAA Fisheries regional administrator Roy Crabtree said. â€œThatâ€™s the law now and weâ€™ll abide by it.â€? Billy Archer, a third generation Panama City charter fisherman, sits on the board of the Charter Fishermanâ€™s Association, an organization that joined Texas and
Louisiana in the lawsuit against NOAA Fisheries. â€œBasically what happened, the way the lawsuit was filed, the states of Texas and Louisiana were the primary plaintiffs, but we were a part of that group,â€? said Archer, who captains the boat â€œSeminole Windâ€? out of St. Andrews Marina. â€œThe whole purpose of the lawsuit is that you canâ€™t penalize the states â€” Florida, Texas, Louisiana â€” because they chose to go noncompliant.â€? Crabtree said NOAA Fisheries estimated the daily catch rate for state and federal seasons and determined a 28-day Gulfwide season would keep the catch within the recreational quota.
â€œThe bottom line is that you canâ€™t treat each state differently,â€? Archer said. â€œThe judge had no idea about red snapper as far as fishing goes, but he understood the law.â€? NOAA finalized its federal snapper seasons last month, allowing a 34-day season in federal waters off Mississippi and Alabama, where the season in state waters, which extend 9 miles offshore, mirrors the federal season. The noncompliant states faced shorter seasons: 26 days in Florida, 24 in Louisiana and 17 in Texas. In Texas, state waters are open for snapper fishing yearround with a four-fish bag limit, and state waters in Louisi-
ana are open Friday, Saturday and Sunday, March 23 through Sept. 30, with a three-fish bag limit. Floridaâ€™s 44-day season and two-fish bag limit was set by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) in April. â€œThe commission decided to choose a 44-day season rather than a compliant season based on public comments and concern and based on snapper (stock) being better off than we previously thought,â€? said FWC spokeswoman Amanda Nalley. Nalley said the ruling will have no effect on what happens in state waters.
Fla Choppas finish season undefeated By VALERY MCALLISTER-LAWTON Special to the News
CHIPLEY â€” The Fla Choppas, a 9-10 year olds team Chipley team coached by Jamar Franklin, had an undefeated 13-0 season this year. Some of the team members have gone on to the All Stars team, which is playing in the AAA District Tournament, which kicked off Friday with Chipley taking on Poplar Springs. The tournament concludes today at 7 p.m. at Pals Park. Franklin is a Chipley High graduate and baseball star prospect who would have gone on to college had it not been for a diagnosis of cancer right before his senior season. Franklinâ€™s diagnosis resulted in multiple surgeries at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and through much prayer and faith in God, is now healed of cancer. For the love of the sport of baseball and a love for the youth in his community, he started the Fla Choppas, a team in which most of the players had never stepped on a baseball diamond, one being his own son, Malik Franklin.
Coach Franklin sponsored the Fla Choppas, and has exposed these youth to the All-American sport of baseball, and given them an opportunity to play baseball and broaden their horizons, who otherwise might have never gotten the chance to play baseball. The regular season has come to an end at PALS Park, and now coach Franklin, and assistant coach Joey Tharp will coach the AAA Dixie Youth 9-10 year olds. The All Stars has placed 12 of the leagueâ€™s best together to compete in District Playoffs. Those chosen from PALS Park are Ziar Potter, Malik Franklin, Justin Keys, Kaden Tharp, Logan Pumphrey, Parker Smelcer, Khalil McKinnie, Isaac Berry, Caleb Watford, Will Taylor, Konner Odom and Trevor Balkcome as the AAA All-Star Team for 9-10 year olds. Top pitchers are Ziar Potter, who has never played before, and according to Coach Franklin is â€œa naturalâ€? and also pitching is Malik Franklin. Behind the plate defense will be Kaden Tharp and Isaac Berry. Solid hitting offense will be Logan Pumphrey, Malik Franklin along with others.

CODE from page A1 houses,â€? Miner said. The mayor said the legal process of hunting down property owners and sending them letters takes too long to do anything about cleaning up neglected properties. â€œItâ€™s a matter of due diligence,â€? Miner said. â€œThere is a legal process we have to follow, and it does take some time.â€? The city has to find the abandoned or neglected property owners and notify them of the problem. Then if nothing is done, the city
can seek citations, fines and liens. But the process is time-consuming. Miner said as generations pass, properties change from homes to rental properties, and often the pride of ownership and care of lawns and homes falls to the wayside. â€œOften the kids have moved off to Illinois or who knows where, and itâ€™s just a rental property to them. Thereâ€™s no upkeep on the properties,â€? Miner said. For abandoned properties, if the city decides to
