With 4-1 vote, school

board pursues legal action


During the February meeting
of the Washington County School
Board, Attorney Gerald Holley
told members that the wills of
Fitzhugh and Essie Carter are be-
ing contested by Fitzhugh Carter's
nephew, Hulan Carter.
After a vote of 4-1, with School
Board Chairman Gary Clark vot-
ing no, the school board decided
to take the first steps necessary to
sidetrack the challenge.
According to Holley, the couple
left a considerable financial lega-
cy to Washington County high
schools.
He said the estate is valued at $5


million, 25% of which should go
to Vernon High School and 15%
to Chipley High School. Similar
bequests were made to state uni-
versities, as well as relatives of the
couple.
Holley said Florida State Uni-
versity and University of Florida
have agreed to seek an outside legal
opinion on the validity of the will,
its trust and a questionable power-
of-attorney associated with the
documentss.
Following the majority vote on
the matter, Holley will coordinate
efforts with the universities in-
volved.


Ebro opposes road action


Elizabeth Anne Harrell recently attended Inauguration
Ceremonies for President George W. Bush, as well as the Flor-
ida Ball in Washington, D.C. Paul Kitchens of Charleston, S.C.,
sitting in for her grandfather, J.T. Harrell, who was unable to
attend, escorted her to the various events. Elizabeth Anne is the
daughter of Dr. R. Ron and Nancy Harrell of Dothan, Ala., and
the granddaughter of J.T. and Edna Harrell of Chipley. She is a
graduate of Hollins University, with a bachelor of arts degree in
political science. She has many fond memories of Chipley, when
she and her brother, Alexander, spent many weekends with their
grandparents.


Ebro Town Council unanimously
approved a resolution to oppose
the cessation of maintenance on
five roads in the Red Head com-
munity.
Resolution #2005-01, addresses
concerns for emergency response,
school bus access and mail deliv-
ery, also says council is of the opin-
ion that abandoning maintenance
on the roads in question would be
the equivalent of closing them.
Leonard Dean, who represents
a group of concerned citizens op-
posed to the action, was at Ebro's
February meeting to ask for their
collective support.
A public hearing to address the
matter will be held Feb. 24, 6 p.m.,
at the Washington County Board of
County Commissioners meeting
room in the government annex in
Chipley.
In other business, council dis-


cussed the possibility of buying
into the county's proposed animal
control solutions, which would
require each municipality to pay
a yearly fee, prorated by popu-
lation.
Allowing that Parks and Rec-
reation Director David Corbin is
scheduled to appear before Council
in March, it was determined mak-
ing a decision on the issue would be
premature. The matter was tabled
pending Corbin's visit.
Also, Town Clerk Linda Mar-
low reported a 32x60 pole barn
purchased to house fire trucks and
equipment, has been erected.
In addition, Mayor Jamie Holley
reminds all Ebro community resi-
dents who plan to use a plot in the
town's cemetery, to register with
Marlow. An appointment should
be made in advance so the required
paperwork can be prepared.


Crist warns of check scam


Attorney General Charlie Crist
has advised consumers of a new
and aggressive financial scam that
leaves no Floridian immune from
attack including the Attorney
General himself.
Last week, Crist received two
cashier's checks totaling $21,000,
attempting to draw the Attorney
General into the latest variation of
a familiar scam.
For more than two decades,
authorities have battled an inter-
national mail scheme commonly
known as the "Nigerian Bank
Scam." In its traditional form,
the scam involves a promise that
an individual will pay the victim
from a large pool of money being
held overseas if the victim first
sends a smaller amount of money
as "security."
The victim sends the money but,
then, never again hears from the
sender.
Recently, a new twist on the
old system has emerged. In this
variation, the victim receives a
cashier's check in the mail or via
overnight delivery. The check is
for a large sum of money from
what appears to be a nationally
recognized banking institution.
No explanation accompanies the
check, but the victim may attempt
to deposit it into his or her bank
account. Should the victim's bank
accept the deposit, the check is
routed to the financial institution
of origin where it is discovered that
the account has been closed.


They're off!
Dirt bike riders from all over
the United States descended on
Hard Labor Creek Plantation,
south of Chipley, on Saturday
and Sunday for the second an-
nual hare scramble. The starts
of the multiple-heat program,
above, were ear-splitting and
dusty. Racers stood in front of -..
their bikes; when the whistle
sounded, they mounted and
started kicking; then it was
a drag race to the course.
Two riders, right, take it easy
through a particularly wind-
ing part of the eight-mile trail.
Additional pictures from the
event are on page 8A.


The check is then forwarded to
the original holder of the closed
account, who now has the victim's
banking information. It can take
some time for the victim to realize
that the integrity of his or her bank
account has been compromised.
"The audacity of these criminals
is breathtaking," said Crist. "It's
clear that these scam artists will
stop at nothing, and spare no one,
in their shameless ploy to make a
quick buck. This is a vivid reminder
that if something sounds too good
to be true, it probably is. It is im-
portant that all Florida consumers
are aware of this threat."
Crist is a leader in efforts against
identity theft and other scams, and
immediately recognized that the
cashier's checks were of dubi-
ous authenticity. He contacted
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement to alert them to the
scheme. FDLE confirmed that the
checks are indeed part of h scam
and said it appears to be a variant
on the traditional Nigerian check
scam. FDLE is now investigating
this new development.
Consumers who receive any type
of similar cashier's check or solici-
tation to participate in an advanced
pay scheme should immediately
contact their local U.S. Secret
Service office. Attorney General
Crist also offers these suggestions
to avoid becoming the victim of
such a scheme:

People from First Presby-
terian Church got up early
Saturday morning and roped
off the block on which their
church building sits.
Visitors were greeted by
a church member dressed
in a frilly white blouse and
red plaid skirt. A cardboard
box on a nearby table was
marked donations and it was
pretty near filled with bills by
mid-morning.
The sound of bagpipe mu-
sic by the Pipes and Drums
from Panama City made it
easy for folks to find the fes-
tival spot where there was a
lot to see and do.
A bake sale and tea were
held indoors. Visitors had
an opportunity to purchase
S cookies shaped like maple
leaves or whole cakes.
Small tartlets filled with
Sherry pie mix or lemon
pudding were served at the
tea table, along with lemon
bars, chocolate cake made
especially moist with cher-
ries in the batter, scones,
tiny biscuit and sausage
treats, and various other
kinds of tea cakes.
There also were scotch
eggs boiled and peeled eggs
wrapped in a sausage blanket
and fried.
Three kinds of hot tea
were available.
While members of the
band warmed up and talked
with visitors on the front
lawn, trips to vendors and
their booths were taken.
Highland Blades of Plant
City displayed handmade
knives of all sizes, including
small boot daggers (they
looked like shiny ice picks
) and knives with bone
handles.
A jeweler, Mahmud
Ghazal, showed crosses and
other jewelry featuring first
century Roman glass found
in Samaria. The pieces were
crafted in silver in Jerusalem
and there were certificates
of authenticity for them. The
S best pieces were priced in the
$150 range, but some were as
low as $50.
Sherridan Smith of
California showed a fine
collection of Celtic art
and jewelry while Nullus
Anxietas sold Homemade
Happiness (candles) made
of various scents, and other
vendors sold funnel cakes
and cotton candy.
Joyce Oakley, president
of the Tallahassee Scottish
Highland Games and Celtic
Festival, also was on hand.
The booths were placed
along the street beside the
vacant lot where the High-
land games were played.
Men in colorful skirts threw
heavy weights and stones and
used a pitchfork on heavy
burlap squares that looked
like the bases on a baseball
diamond.
There also was a hammer
throw and caber toss.
Those looking for lunch
could find it in the courtyard
where hot dogs and ham-
burgers were cooked on an
outdoor grill. Tables were
available as well as grassy
spots on which to spread a
blanket.
The afternoon's enter-
tainment was held in the
courtyard. The Pipes and
Drums played while various
flags were displayed. Joyce
Oakley was introduced to
the crowd and winners of
the Scottish Essay Contest
Hannah Young and Megan
Wilder were given their
prizes.
Also honored was 74-year-
old Jesse Scott of the Clan
Scott, who retired from the
railroad in Colorado in 1992
and that same year moved to
Pace "where people don't
know what a snow shovel
looks like."
The Coastal Magic Cho-


rus, a chapter of the Sweet
Adelines International, sang
several songs. Four of the
women known as the "Magic
Makers Quartet" also sang.
They are Debbie Baldwin,
tenor; Paula Chenney, lead;
Charlotte Higgs, baritone,
and Chris Geise, bass.
The singers, many from
Panama City, were dressed.

for the event, along with
Dee Bowen.
The festival was planned
to provide education to

tish Heritage and how it has
influenced their lives.
First Presbyterian of
Chipley was organized Oct.
18, 1896. In mid-1938, the
congregation began worship-
ping in its present sanctuary
at the corer of North Fifth
Street and Watts Avenue.
David Darrow has been
pastor since October 2003.
He says he "has found the
folks here to be very warm
and friendly families of
faith."
Members celebrate the
pilgrimage and successful
journey of those who have
brought them to this time
and place.
A special service Kirking
O' The Tartan was held
Sunday with families encour-
aged to wear or bring their
tartan or other personal items
as reminders of their family,
regardless of origin.
Kirk is a Scottish word
for church.
"We can thank God for
our heritage and seek God's
blessings on us all today as
we build the Godly heritage
of tomorrow," the chair-
women said.
Guests at Saturday's event
were given the traditional
Celtic Blessing: "May there
always be work for your
hands to do, May your purse
always hold a coin or two,
May the sun always shine
on your window pane, May a
rainbow be certain to follow
each rain, May the hand of
a friend always be near you,
May God fill your heart with
gladness to cheer you."
Those who missed
Saturday's festival should
mark their calendar for next
year's event.

Herbert Otho Nunley
A long-standing pillar of the community was laid to rest in a private
ceremony at Glenwood Cemetery, Thursday, February 17, 2005.
Born on August 2, 1915, in Golden Mississippi, he was the son of the
late Willis Otto and Cansie Byran Nunley. Mr. Nunley was a dedicated
employee of Rex Lumber Company for 35 years. In addition to his long-
term career at the lumber company, Mr. Nunley and his late wife, Eunice
Lucille Nunley, established three retail businesses in the community. A
full-service fabric center, located in Chipley; two full-service gas stations,
providing gas, groceries and fishing supplies located in both Chipley and
Graceville. These businesses were owned and operated by the Nunley
family for more than 20 years.
The community will remember him for the many years of enjoyment
he brought to area residents with his catfish farm. Raising catfish pro-
vided him great happiness as he watched others bring their families and
enjoy catching a few fish for dinner.
Mr. Nunley loved life to the fullest. He loved music, particularly
the Grand Old Opry. He told endless stories of his youth dancing until
the floor fell in underneath him. He always anticipated the opening of
squirrel season, a little time away from the businesses to drop a cricket
into Russ Pond, Friday night football watching his boys play and after
the boys were grown, taking the girls to the football games so he could
keep an eye on them. Hunting and fishing were family events for Mr.
Nunley and his children. He found joy and peace in the deepest parts of
"Alligator Creek." The fishing and hunting stories have been etched in
his children's minds throughout the many wonderful years they shared
with him.
Mr. Nunley was a respected man who always taught his children the
importance of living a Godly life. Although he was not a member of
an established congregation, he had a deep rooted faith in God, which
carried him throughout his life. Mr. Nunley was a profound man with a
simple message. Although departed this is a new beginning not the end
to this remarkable man's journey and we all are proud to have shared
some of the footsteps he made.
Herbert Nunley is survived by his family Ray and Joyce Nunley of
Lawrenceville, Ga.; Glenn Nunley of Graceville, Fl.; Steven Nunley of
Graceville, Fl.; the late Ann Nunley Baggett of Bonifay, Fl.; Steven
and Wanda Nunley Harrison of North Augusta, SC; and Beverly Nunley
of Charlotte, NC.
He was the proud grandfather of four grandsons; Greg Baggett,
Timothy Baggett, Adam Harrison and Steven Cole Nunley; and seven
granddaughters; Sonya Dixon, Gerri Lynn Nunley; Angela Nunley, Na-
tasha Nunley, Samatha Nunley, Amanda Harrison and Caroline Nunley.
He also had seven great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild,
which he was very proud of.
Letters and cards of condolence may be sent to:
Wanda Nunley Harrison
316 Peter Carnes Drive
North Augusta, South Carolina 32460.

- It ain't easy
Dear Editor:
Okay, I give up.
S I've tried for the seven months
I've lived in Washington County
to continue the commitment to
recycling that was ingrained in
me when I livedd in Tallahassee,-
Gainesville, West Palm Beach,
Anchorage, Tacoma, and Barstow,
CA over the past 20 years.
Knowing there is no curbside
pick-up, nor sorting at the cen-
tral recycling center, I set up four
cans in my car port -- one each
for aluminum, cardboard, plastic
and glass. I had a bin beside nmy
kitchen garbage can to collect re-
cyclables. My sons sorted the col-
lection box as one of their chores.
I know recycling can be cum-
bersome, but once it is a habit, it
is no big deal. In fact, when I first
started recycling, I was happy to
discover that more than half my
household waste went into the re-
cycling can instead of the garbage
can. When I recycle, it is easy t6
imagine, if every family did this,
how slowly the landfills would
reach capacity, and to visualize
the acreage that would be saved
from being stripped of trees and


LETTER


excavated for landfills.
But I've grown weary of load-
ing the four cans into my truck and
driving slowly to the recycling
center in south Washington Coun-
ty when one Of the cans became
full. I don't understand why the
county does not have collection
sites in each municipality, as some
of our surrounding rural counties
do. The director of the recycling
center keeps promising such bins
are planned, but does not know
when. The county commissioner
I, contacted was sympathetic, but
had no solution.'
I am so glad to be back in my
native north Florida, and delight-
ed to now call Washington Coun-
ty home, but do wish there was
more commitment to recycling.
We are spoiled living here, where
the lands and waters are pristine.
I urge every citizen who shares
my desire to recycle to contact
our county commissioners and re-
quest drop-off bins in each town.
I know curbside pick-up might
never be a reality, but the county
can make utilizing the recycling
center easier. It shouldn't be so
difficult to do the right thing.

Perry's

Praffle


by Judge Perry E. Wells, ret.


The latest book to hit the
market in our area is entitled
"VERNON the HEART of
OLD Washington County,
Florida." The authors are
Mary Catherin May and
Faye Middleton with Erik
Robinson.
The 126-page book is
basically a story in pictures
showing actual scenes and
real people, some identified
by name, and mostly all of
Vernon and its citizens,
or those living in close
proximity to the city. The
book is the second one
for Vernon native, Mary
Catherin May. Her first
one was printed in 2003
and is entitled "The Stead-
fast Line, The story of the
27th Bombardment Group
(Light) in World War II."
The book is built around her
extensive research of the
military unit listed above,
and especially, details of
the capture and experience
of Mary Catherin's uncle,
Emil Russ May, who died
in a Japanese Prison Camp
on Jan. 6, 1943. I have
purchased both books and
consider them well worth
the price.
Only a few weeks ago,
Chipley's own Joan P.
Chance released her sec-
ond book, "Joan's Pictorial

Old Fashion Day
SWashington County Farm
Bureau has planned its Old
Fashion Day activities for
Saturday, Feb. 26. The
event is held each year. in
conjunction with the annual
Youth Fair. It begins with a
spaghetti supper from 4:30-
6:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 25."
Youth will set up their
exhibits Thursday evening
and the fair will be open
on Friday with rabbit and
dairy shows to be held that
evening. Livestock shows
will be held on Saturday.
Tickets to the spaghetti
supper will cost $5 adult


Treasures of Washington
County, Florida." It, too,
is basically a pictorial his-
tory of a host.of buildings,
churches, schools, busi-
nesses and people. Joan's
first printing was an imme-
diate sellout. I have seen
the book and "thumbed"
through it, but will have to
await the second printing in
order to buy one.
Her first book, printed
approximately 15 years
ago, was entitled "Through
The Years." It's a compre-
hensive history of Washing-
ton County and its people
and is well worth reading
and having on your book-
shelf.
Another book to attract
my interest was one edited
by Bonifay native Mary
Coleman in 1995 and
entitled "Better to Dwell,
A Georgia Peddler's Di-
ary 1895-1900." This is
a most interesting story
of J.A. McCulloch, a Pike
County, Georgia peddler
who kept a rather detailed
diary and unusual records
of his selling experience.
Mary, with some ac-
knowledged assistance,
unraveled the jumbled diary
and put it into an interesting
and readable form. Maybe
the "Prattler's" experience

is this Saturday,
and $3 children with pro-
ceeds going to "Ag in the
Classroom" and other youth
activities.
Old Fashion Day will
open Saturday morning
with the sale of hot biscuits
cooked on a wood stove.
Other country-style ac-
tivities, including contests,
entertainment, exhibits and
craft booths will be held
throughout the day.
Saturday's attractions
will feature an antique
tractor display, with dem-
onstrations on log sawing,
cream separating, quilting,


of having been reared by a
peddling father, prompted
his fascination with Mary's
efforts. I am happy to have
this book in my collection.
We have all the books
written by the late E.W.
(Judge) Carswell in our
home. Aside from being
downright enjoyable, each
one is a "must" if you
are interested in the his-
tory and development of
Washington and Holmes
counties. "Washington,
Florida's Twelfth County,"
is one I find myself refer-
ring to most frequently.
I hope everyone knows
by now that books on The
Heritage of Holmes County
and The Heritage of Wash-
ington County are currently
being formulated for publi-
cation, hopefully, in 2005.
If you have not written your
story yet, please do so im-
mediately to insure that
your family does not get
left out. Call me for details
at (850) 638-1016.
Another search for fam-
ily histories is presently un-
derway by Victor Silvestri
of DeFuniak Springs. Since
1972, he has been collecting
anecdotes about Florida
sheriffs and their families.
Silvestri's goal is to collect
a family history of every


possible Florida sheriff
from 1821 to the present
time. He already has a
personal archive which in-
cludes a well-documented
roster of sheriffs, many
including genealogies dat-
ing to the arrival of those
families in America.
Silvestri is a New York
native, a retired U.S. Air
Force Major, as well as re-
tired from the U.S. Postal
Service. The May-June
2004 issue of The Sheriff's
Star published one of his
stories, "Florida's First
Sheriff."
That sheriff was William
M. Loftin. Silvestri hopes
to print in 2005 his book
of anthologies of Walton
County sheriffs and their
families. Hopefully, Holm-
es County and Washington
County will soon follow. If
you have information on
any sheriff in Florida, past
or present, this gentleman
wants to hear from you.
His telephone number is 1-
850-892-6962. Ultimately
this collection of stories
will be compiled into an
Encyclopedia of Florida
Sheriffs.
Maybe we will pur-
sue this topic in a latter
"prattle."
See you all next week.

At age 92, Charlie Abbott, right, is considered Florida's

Dr. Stuart

Steiger
Did you know that becoming cer-
tified as a chiropractor requires a mini-
mum of six years of college training?
I hold degrees in education from Fair-
leigh Dickinson University of Teaneck,
New Jersey, and from Life Chiropractic
College, Marietta, Georgia. While in college, I received
Cum Laude honors. Since college, I have received special
training in disability evaluations, independent medical
examinations, and manipulation under anesthesia, and
was appointed Chairman of the Deparment of Chiropractic
Services at the Gulf Pines Hospital in Port St. Joe, Florida.
I have visited a number of other chiropractic clinics to
study their methods and procedures including: treatment
of whiplash injuries, treatment of disc problems, and treat-
ment of headaches.
Additionally, I previously owned and operated Steiger
Clinic of Chiropractic in Panama City between 1983 and
1994. In 1995 I associated with and ran the Back and Neck
Pain Clinic of America in South St. Petersburg office where
I treated many auto accident injury cases in conjunction
with medical orthopedic, neurology and pain specialists.
This is the kind of training and professionalism I offer
you. If you have hesitated visiting a chiropractor, perhaps
you didn't know that chiropractors go to such lengths to
continue their education and provide you with the latest
techniques and the most qualified service. So, you see,
what you don't know, can't help you. Call me today and
let me help you.
Are you sufferingfrom any of these symptoms?
Back Pain Headaches Shoulder Pain Painful Joints
Neck Pain Arthritis Arm/Leg Pain Stiffness
Numbness Bursitis Hip Pain Tingling
And, because most insurance companies recognize and
cover chiropractic care, your treatment can be at little or
no cost to you, according to the limits of your insurance
policy. To encourage you to try chiropractic, please
accept this offer:
YOUR INITIAL SPINAL EXAMINATION
A $95.00 VALUE...FOR ONLY $27.00 (A $68.00 SAVINGS)
This examination will include an orthopedic test,
a neurological test, a spinal alignment check, an
examination for restricted or excess motion in the spine,
a muscle strengthness test, and a discussion of the results.
If x-rays or further tests are required to reach a diagnosis
you will be advised before proceeding.

The entire world was
shaken when Southeast
Asia was devastated by the
tsunami, destroying lives
and leaving millions home-
less, many of them children.
In the wake of this disaster,
Carolyn Sasser and Caro-
lyn's Fashions in downtown
Chipley decided to make a
contribution by hosting a
fund-raiser in the form of a
beauty pageant.

ter Pageant will be held on
Saturday, March 19, at the
Washington County Agri-
cultural Center on Hwy 90

a king or queen as well as
a first and second runner-
up. The king or queen will
receive a crown, satin ban-
ner, trophy and gift. The
runner-ups will receive a
satin banner, trophy and gift.
Each contestant will receive
a gift and a 5x7 glossy photo
taken at the pageant in their
pageant wear.
The bulk of the pageant
proceeds will be donated
to Warm Blankets Orphan
Care International to spon-
sor children orphaned in
Southeast Asia by the tsu-
nami. Warm /Blankets is a
Christian based charitable


organization dedicated to
the rescue of orphans and
widows in third world
countries.
Currently, they are fo-
cusing efforts in Southeast
Asia, reuniting orphans with
extended family members
and finding home place-
ments for those who lost
everything
As this pageant is a fund-
raiser, contestants may have
pageant fees waived by col-
lecting a minimum of $150
in donations. For those col-
lecting the greatest amounts
in donations, there will be
an overall sponsorship king
and queen crowned.
Any businesses or indi-
viduals wishing to donate
funds, gifts, or services for
door prizes should contact
Carolyn Sasser at (850)

tions around the area. Ap-

Gov. Bush endorses

'Read together, Florida


Recently, Gov. Jeb Bush
encouraged Floridians to par-
ticipate in Florida's second
statewide reading project,
Read Together, Florida. The
book selected this year is,
'Hoot', by Carl Hiaasen.
Read Together, Florida
is a month-long celebration
combining the joy of reading
with the value of reading. As
a part of this year's program,
the Governor announced a
statewide writing contest
for all Florida middle school
students.
"Carl Hiaasen's book,
'Hoot', is a wonderful way to
educate Florida students about
the importance of protecting
the environment, and high-
lights the important role our
youth play in creating change
by standing up for what
they believe," said Governor
Bush. "I encourage Florida
educators, students, and their
families to enjoy this story. It
invites readers to take part in
interesting discussions about
the importance of preserving
Florida's natural resources."
This book tells a fictional
story of young Floridians who
choose to take a stand when
environmental and growth is-
sues collide with their small
town.
Read Together, Florida be-
gins March 1 and continues
until April 30. Community
activities tied to the book will
take place across the state for
readers of all ages.
"I'm very honored that
'Hoot' was chosen," said Hi-
aasen. "I hope families have
as much fun reading it as I
did writing it." I also hope
they come away feeling that
Florida's many wild and beau-
tiful places are worth fighting
to save."



Touchstone Energy'
West Florida Electric


New to the project this
year is a writing contest for
middle school students. The
contest encourages students
to write an alternative ending
for 'Hoot' and compete for
recognition. The deadline for
entry will be April 8.
A first, second and third-
place winner will be selected
by a panel of educators,
business, and literacy lead-
ers across Florida. The first-
place winner will visit Gov.
Bush in Tallahassee in May,
and his or her winning entry
will be published in Begin-
nings, a journal for first-time
writers that is published by the
Florida Center for the Literary
Arts at Miami Dade College.
The journal will be distributed
to schools statewide. Winning
entries will also be posted on
participating websites.
Read Together, Florida is
a project of the Governor's
Family Literacy Initiative
and is managed by, nonprofit,
Volunteer Florida Founda-
tion. The annual project is
sponsored by Washington
Mutual. Participating enti-
ties include the State Library
and Archives of Florida, Just
Read, Florida, the Florida

Sports Editor
Is it time for a change
at some of the local high
school coaching positions.
Far too often our area
schools end up with people
coaching that have been do-
ing it forever or the coaches
are former graduates that
just aren't qualified.
I am not knocking any-
one that can make a start in
coaching, but this area has
some of the best athletes in
the state and they are suf-
fering because the lack of
quality coaching.
Does anyone ever ask
why none of the teams in
this area have been hang-
ing state championships on
their wall. Well it all comes
down to coaching.
We have several area
coaches that are some of
the top in the state, then we
have some that have their
position because they have
been around long enough.
I just ask this question.
Would you want your child
coached by someone that
has their job because they
were there or because they
deserved it?
More often than not the
only way a coach in this
area loses there job is be-
cause they break the law or
they die.
I remember a time when
if you didn't win every
game the coach's head was
on a chopping block all the
following week.
I don't exactly agree with
those tactics but I feel the
children playing deserve
some accountability from
the coaches.
Coaches should not get
a job because of their last
name or how long they have
been around.
I feel the principals
should also be held ac-
countable when their pro-
grams are perineal losers
and seldom make a run at
the playoffs.
More than one school in
this area feels a great sense
of accomplishment when
they make the playoffs.
That should be a stepping
stone not a centerpiece.
Its time for account-
ability for the children tak-
ing the field or putting on
the jerseys.
Let's make sure that they
have the best chance to ex-
cel and have the possibility
to play at a higher level.


Chipley tops Ponce de Leon for district crown


JEREMY RAINES
Sports Editor
The place was rocking
and the crowd was scream-
ing as the Ponce de Leon
gym was packed to stand-
ing room only to see Chi-
pley defeat Ponce de Leon
58-50 in the District 2-2A
championship game on
Saturday night.
The game saw both
teams take the lead only
to relinquish it a short
while later.
Both sides of the gym-
nasium were filled with
fans wanting to show sup-
port for their respective
teams.
The Tigers jumped out
to an early lead, before the
Pirates battled back to take
a two-point lead on a Will
Scott lay-up.
The Tigers answered
with just minutes re-
maining in the opening
half to hold a slim half-
time lead.
The second half was no
different, as both teams
came out determined to
hoist the championship
trophy. With six minutes
left in the game the Pirates
held a 38-35 lead.
Chipley Coach Tony
Davis called a time-out
and rallied his troops.
Following the time out


the Tigers tied the game
on a Decoya White three-
point shot and their de-
fensive pressure forced a
turnover and James Staten
made a basket for the Tiger
lead. From that point out
the Tigers would not relin-
quish the lead again.
Ponce de Leon made
several runs at the Tigers
only to be denied in the
end.
The Tigers celebrated
their first district title un-
der Davis and stormed the
court in celebration fol-
lowing the final buzzer.
"This was a team ef-
fort and we really had our
hands full the past two
nights in this tournament,"
said CHS coach Davis.
"Now we have to get
ready for the second
season, the playoffs," he
added.
Chipley advanced to
the championship game
after narrowly defeating
Holmes County on Friday
night. Ponce de Leon
edged South Walton to
advance.
Chipley will be at home
to face Jay the runner-up in
District 1, while Ponce de
Leon will be on the road
to face Baker. Both games
will be played on Thursday
night.


Chipley celebrates a hard fought win, following being crowned the 2005 district
2-2A champions.

Davis keeps CHS tradition alive


JEREMY RAINES
Sports Editor
New faces, same old
results.
The Chipley High School
boys basketball team re-
cently wrapped up the
district title for new coach
Tony Davis.
Many people thought
that Davis would have no
problem picking up where
longtime CHS coach Ricky
McCullough left off, but
most felt the talent level was
down and the Tigers would
struggle to reach the level
most had come to expect.
Davis not only has met
those expectations but I feel
he has surpassed them.
He entered the season
without the top two scorers
from last year's team and
the loss of his starting center
Cody Slate, who suffered a
knee injury during football
season.
Not only did he have to
deal with finding offense
but the tallest player on the
team was lucky to stretch to
6'l" tall.


So Davis decided to out-
run his opponents instead
of trying to match up with
them.
He did have the luxury
of returning sharp shooter
Decoya White and point
guard James Staten to lead
the offense.
Then he turned to the fa-
miliar faces of kids from his
JV team the year before.
Patrick Spencer and Jonte
Harmon were called upon to
step in and contribute right
away.
Behind the scene, many
people doubted Davis'
chances of putting together
the kind of squads that Chi-
pley was known for for over
25 years.
But he put together one
of the most exciting teams
to watch that I have seen in
many years.
They play the kind of
game that reminds me of a
Nolan Richardson-coached
team, former University of
Arkansas coach that won
several national champi-
onships, that ran a high


tempo pressing defense that
was named "40 minutes of
hell."
Davis deserves all the
credit in the world for
being able to hang yet an-
other banner from the ceil-
ing of the CHS gym, and
advancing his team to the
playoffs.
Most people remember
Davis for his game-break-
ing speed and pinpoint
shooting in high school that
made him one of the most
sought after athletes in the
state while in high school.
I had the luxury of play-
ing with him and saw the
competitive fire that burns
inside him. He doesn't
accept losing and when all
else fails he will find a way
to come out on top.
He is the right man for
the job and I feel will hang
many more banners from
the rafters before his career
at CHS is finished.
Congratulations Tony for
a great season and making
the game of basketball fun
to watch.

Jackson's 36 leads Tigers


to opening round win


The Chipley Lady Tigers
traveled to Baker to play
the regional semi-finals on
Thursday night. The
Tigers had a nice fol-
lowing of fans at the game
and they were loud with their
support of the Lady Tigers.
The JV cheerleaders who
have faithfully supported the
ladies all year traveled with
the team to add their support
and cheer the girls on.
The Tigers scored the first
nine points of the game, and
played steller defense.
Nikki Jackson seemed
to be on a mission to win
and win big. She took con-
trol and led the Tigers the
whole game while scoring
36 points.
The entire team con-
tributed. with great play on
the floor. Everyone stepped


up their game in offense and
defense.
Coach Rickey Mc-
Cullough was very proud of
the way the girls responded
after being defeated by
Ponce de Leon in the district
tournament.
"We played the way we
should and the way we
were playing earlier in the
season," said Coach Mc-
Cullough. "I was proud of
the way we played the whole
game and it was great to
have the fan and cheerleader
support.
Chipley led the whole
game by double digits and
won 67-48. The Lady Ti-
gers are now 23-6 on the
season.
Leading the way in scor-
ing for the Lady Tigers
were: Nikki Jackson with


36 points, 13 rebounds, five
assists, and three steals, Emi
McCullough with 12 points,
10 rebounds, two assists,
and a steal, Whitney Thomas
with seven points, seven
rebounds, and one steal,
Rachel McIntyre with four
points and eight rebounds
and Jatara Hogans with
three points,, three rebounds
and one assist.
The Tigers travel to West
Gadsden (Greensboro) Tues-
day night.
Game time is 6 p.m. CST.
West Gadsden defeated Cot-
tondale 59-54 to advance.
The Lady Tigers have
defeated West Gadsden two
times during regular season,
and with the win could have
a possible rematch with
Ponce de Leon for the Re-
gional Championship.

top scorers in the pan-

and Caleb Johnson with
eight points and five re-
bounds.
Next the Blue Devils
traveled to Grand Ridge
for their final game of the
season and came away
with a 40-35 win.
The Blue Devils got
behind early and trailed
at the end of the first
quarter 13-7.
The second quarter fa-
vored the Devils and they
outscored the Indians 15-
8 to take a 22-21 lead into
the half.
The third quarter was a
battle with both defenses
holding their opponent
under double digits and
the scoreall knotted at
27-27.
The Blue Devils hit the
offensive boards well in
the fourth quarter and
were able to score some
points off of missed out-
side shots allowing them
to outscore the Indians
13-8 and secure the win.
"Crashing the of-


fensive boards in the
final two minutes of the
game was the difference
in leaving Grand Ridge
with a win rather than a
loss," said Coach Med-
ley.
Jamarious Johns scored
a game high 21 points for
the Blue Devils.
SThe Blue Devils fin-
ished the season with 15
wins, and completed the
second half of the sched-
ule winning eight of the
final 10 games.
Coach Medley added,
"That once the freshmen
adjusted to the speed of
the game at the high
school level, and the
team as a whole started
playing with more con-
fidence things started
looking up and we be-
gan to experience suc-
cess."
"This is a good group
of kids, they showed up
everyday, worked hard
and I appreciate their
effort," he added.

Christy Bloechl, community educator for Covenant Hospice, in the far corner, is
shown educating healthcare professionals on hospice myths at a recent Lunch and
Learn seminar.

Lunch and Learn set for Feb. 25


Covenant Hospice of
Marianna held its first
Lunch and Learn semi-
nar. of the year. Christy
Bloechl, community edu-
cator, spoke on hospice
myths. She reviewed the
settings in which hospice
services are available, the
importance of a timely
referral, the general goal


for pain management, and
explained why hospice is
for all end-of-life patients,
not just the elderly.
Covenant Hospice's
Lunch and Learn pro-
grams are free to the pub-
lic. CEU's are provided to
healthcare workers.
The next class will be
held at 12:15 p.m. on Fri-


day, Feb. 25, at Covenant
Hospice's educational cen-
ter, 4440 Lafayette Street,
Suite C, in Marianna.
Carol Ricks, commu-
nity educator will speak
on Diabetes Mellitus.
Seating is limited.
For more information
contact, Carol or Christy
at (850) 482-8530.


Emerald Coast Hospice seeks volunteers


Emerald Coast Hospice
is looking for volunteers
to make a difference in a
neighbor's life.
"You can brighten some-
one's day by becoming
a Hospice volunteer," a
spokesman said.
Volunteers are needed in


several areas: patient care,
office, bereavement, phone
calls and crafts.
"Training is provided
and we will come to you,"
the spokesman explained.
For more information
about volunteering or
Hospice services, call


Sheila Glover, volunteer
coordinator, Hospice of
the Emerald Coast, at (850)
526-3577.
"Volunteers are Amer-
ica's unsung heroes,"
Glover said. "Make a dif-
ference in someone's life
today."


State agency corrects wage information


There was an error in a
recent story about the new
minimum wage for em-
ployees in the state of Flor-
ida, according to Warren
C. May, communications
director of the Agency for
Workforce, Innovation.. ;
The error concerned the
wage for tipped employees,
which the article said was


$2.13 per hour.
"That figure should have
been $3.13 per hour," May
said in making the cor-
rection.
"For tipped employ-
ees meeting eligibility
requirements for ,the tip
credit under the Fair La-
bor Standards Act (FLSA),
employers may count tips


actually received as wages
towards satisfaction of the
minimum wage, but the
employer may not pay
less than $3.13 per hour
in direct wages, the dif-
ference between the FLSA
tip credit-of$3.02 perhour
and the new minimum
wage of $6.15 per hour,"
he explained.


Expo organizers seek exhibitors, vendors


The 2005 Home and

ing a new home or improv-

This is a wonderful op-
portunity for business own-


ers or tradesmen to show-
case their business. They
will be able to introduce
the public to new equip-
ment, materials, products
and services with other
professionals.
Anyone interested in
becoming a part of this
exciting event should call
Debbie McCrary at (850)
638-4436 or Tammy Dean,
(850) 526-6831, today to


reserve a booth.

Holmes County's horizons look



pretty good in the coming years


Development
Commission and
Chamber moving
forward for 2005

JYL EICKMANN Execu-
tive Director
Holmes County
Development Commis-
sion and Chamber of
Commerce
Holmes County is defi-
nitely a work in progress!
We have had a very pro-
ductive year in laying the
groundwork for future
economic development.
The Board members of
the Development Com-
mission and Chamber of
Commerce have stayed
on course in developing
programs to help grow the
existing businesses and
lure new industry to locate
in Holmes County. We
have made great strides in
marketing Holmes County,
especially Bonifay, Ponce
de Leon and Esto via our
website, information/
relocation packets and the
"There's No Place Like
Holmes" billboard located
at the I-10, State Hwy. 79
interchange.
Bonifay and Ponce de
Leon have tremendous
growth potential due to
their proximity to Interstate
10. Esto has tremendous
marketing opportunities
for low income/moderate
housing because of avail-
able and relative inexpen-
sive land in comparison to
our surrounding counties.
Holmes County also has
tremendous potential in
luring businesses looking


A large crowd was already on hand at the Fred's ribbon cutting, showing strong support for the new store.


to serve the Alabama and
Florida market.
The success of economic
development is not solely
determined by number
of businesses, or whether
or not you have a major
manufacturing or distribu-
tion center. The heart of
economic development is
helping the small mom and
pop businesses grow and
expand, in turn to provide
good paying jobs for the
community.
The economic fabric of
the United States is made
up of 90 percent of small
businesses. I say all of
that to reemphasize our_
measure of success. For
the past four years, both
entities have been focusing


on expanding and building
the Chamber of Commerce
and formalizing programs
and incentives for existing
and new businesses.
We have several major
attributes that will posi-
tion our county for eco-
nomic growth. However,
I must remind you that
these developments will
not happen over night.
Realistically, we are prob-
ably looking at a couple of
years before some of these
projects come to fruition.
*Proposed Wild Life
Park south of Interstate 10.
*State Hwy. 79 to be
four-laned from I-10 to the
beach.
*New proposed Bay
County International Air-


port, straight down Hwy.
79. Our interchange will be
a direct access to a major
international airport.
*A new hospital south of
the Interstate 10.
*Planned Economic De-
velopment Business Dis-
trict at Interchange.
*Beautifucation at Inter-
state 10.
Based on the following
programs and incentives
we now have in place, we
are very excited about the
economic prosperity for
Holmes County.

Holmes County
Development
Commission
accomplishments:
*Working closely with


Jim Fowler and the Fowler
Center in conducting a fea-
sibility study to determine
the feasibility of a Jim
Fowler, Life in the Wild,
animal preserve south of
Interstate 10 and around
Smith Lake. The Com-

Soul Jam 2005 comes to fairgrounds March 5


On Saturday, March
5, the Holmes County
Fairgrounds will be the
scene of Soul Jam 2005,
a substance-free, Christian
music concert sponsored
by the Countywide Anti
Substance-abuse Effors
(CASE) Coalition, the
Holmes County Ministerial
Association and WJNF the
rock Christian radio sta-
tion. Soul Jam 2005 pres-
ents the Abolute Worship
Tour starring Big Daddy
Weave, Todd Agnew, and
Exit East at 6 p.m.
But the fun starts at 10
a.m. Saturday when the
gates open with rides,
food, booths and a Battle
of the Bands. Tickets are
$7.50 for groups of 10 or
more, $8.50 in advance,
and $10 at the gate. The
one ticket buys entrance
to the concert, the Battle of
the Bands, and unlimited
games and rides.
The Absolute Modem
Worship Tour kicked off on
Feb. 3 featuring Big Daddy
Weave, Todd Agnew and
Exit East in conjunction
with the Album release of
the same name by Fervent
Records. The tour is per-
forming in at least 20 cit-
ies including Birmingham,
AL, Jackson, MS, Detroit,
MI, Springfield, MO, as
well as Bonifay.
In addition to Fervent
Records and the local spon-
sors, the Absolute Modem
Worshin Tour is sponsored


Top Christian Contemporary acts are featured at Soul Jam. The Waiting was
one from last year's event.


by World Vision and is be-
ing booked through GOA,
Inc. "The Absolute Mod-
em Worship tour brings
together Big Daddy Weave
and Todd Agnew and intro-
ducing Exit East. My hope
is this will not only be
an incredible concert but
provide a context for real
worship experience," says
Greg Oliver, GOA, Inc.
With artists that represent
over six million units sold,
15 Dove nominations and
17 top songs like "Here
I Am To Worship," and
"Meet With Me," Absolute
Modem Worship will be a
sought after album for any
worship buyer. The per-
forming artists will have


copies available for sale at
the concert.
The goal of Soul Jam
2005 is to provide a ma-
jor community drug-free
event in an exciting, vi-
brant, youth-oriented en-
vironment where CASE
coalition members and its
faith-based partners can
interact with youth and
provide specific informa-
tion about substance abuse
prevention issues and
Christian resources in an
effort to raise awareness
and increase disapproval
and acceptance of harm of
substance abuse.
The CASE coalition
and local church groups
will have booths inside the


fairgrounds to provide in-
formation about substance
abuse and the coalition's
activities. Both substance
abuse counselors and faith-
based counselors will be
available for consultation
throughout the all-day
event.
Funding for the project
was secured by a grant from
Florida State University's
Prevention Department
written by Wendy Morgan,
vice president and program


director for the CASE
coalition, who also serves
as business manager and
grants administrator for the
Holmes County Sheriff's
Department in addition
to her duties as Holmes
County Teen Court Direc-
tor and Program Director
for CASE.
"According to the
Florida Youth Substance
Abuse Survey (FYSAS),"
Morgan stated, "evidence
of substance use among
Holmes County youth
is significantly higher
than the state average for
several dangerous drugs
including crack cocaine,
methamphetamine, and
OxyContin.
The study has also
shown us that youth in
Holmes County are at
greater risk for involve-
ment in drug use and other
antisocial behaviors due to
a perceived acceptance and
availability of drugs in the
community a perception
that the coalition seeks to
change." Morgan went on
to explain that the most
elevated protective fac-
tor for Holmes County is
Religiosity. The high score
reported by students in


this area represents a key
strength that the coalition
and its faith-based part-
ners seek to build on. The
integral role of the Holmes
County Ministerial Associ-
ation in implementing this
project and the selection
of faith-based performers
and Christian radio station
WJNF are designed to ad-
dress this most important
protective factor for Hol-
mes County youth.
"This event is not about
making money," said
Sheriff Dennis Lee. "Our
goal is to reach our young
people with a Christian
anti-drug message. If we
save one child from drugs
and claim that child for
Jesus, then this event will
have been successful."
Sheriff Lee's sentiments
were echoed by Shelley
Chandler, pastor of First
Baptist Church and Paul
Fries (Holmes Baptist As-
sociation) and other pastors
from throughout the area
who along with Morgan,
Sheriff Dennis Lee, Rene
Parton (General Manager
of WJNF Christian radio),
and others, have been
working hard to bring this
exciting event to Bonifay.

and commercial banking.
Formed in 1971 as First

of $543 million in assets
and 40 locations in Bir-

Badcock

& More

comes to

Bonifay
Family-owned W.S.
Badcock Corp. of Mul-
berry, FL, recently began
an ambitious program of
modernizing its stores, of-
fering a wider variety of
furniture, electronics and
appliances. Recently the
Bonifay store celebrated
becoming part of Badcock
& More.
Badcock began in 1889
when a young-"man from
Great Britain, Henry Bad-
cock, came to the United
States with $5 in his pocket
to seek his fortune. Henry's
dream of success now in-
cludes 320 stores turning
an average of $1.2 billion
annually. The corporation
is fourth-generation family
owned.
The owners of the
Bonifay store, Kevin and
Robert Pemberton, have
deep roots in the Badcock
corporation. Kevin, who
is originally from Hun-
tington, WV, began work-
ing for Badcock in 1988
in the audit department.
He married Robin Tice in
1992 and they returned to
Robin's home of Chipley,
where they managed the
Bonifay store for Robin's
father, Jerry Tice. In April
2001 they purchased the
Bonifay store and became
the new dealers.
The Pembertons have
twin sons, seth and Evan,
age nine. They attend First
Baptist Church in Chipley


among the top 15 financial
service providers in the
country.
As of September 30,
2004, Regions Financial
Corp. had some $84.1 bil-
lion in assets, serving over
five million customers
throughout the south, mid-
west and Texas. Regions
Bank prides itself in being
a full-service provider of
any retail and commercial
banking need, including
trust and mortgage ser-
vices.
Regions is ranked
among the top five on For-
tune's 2004 Most Admired
Banks in the United States
and is included on both the
Forbes 500 and Fortune
500 listing of America's
largest companies.
Clay Williams, a Hol-
mes and Washington area
native, serves as manager
of the Bonifay branch of


Regions Bank. Williams,
a member of the board of
directors of the Holmes
County Chamber of Com-
merce, as well as being
affiliated with the Bonifay
Kiwanis Club, stays busy
promoting Holmes County,
not only as a wonderful
place to live, but a prosper-
ous area in which to locate
a business.
"Even though we are
backed by Regions Fi-
nancial Corporation as
a whole, we still like to
keep a local, hometown
approach in taking care of
our customers," Williams
said.
Regions opened a new
chapter in history when the
merger with Union Plant-
ers was announced in July
of 2004. With the combina-
tion of these two forces in
the financial field, having
been in business for 139

CASE Coalition fights drug abuse in Holmes County


The Countywide Anti
Substance-abuse Efforts
(CASE) is a community
coalition that grew out of
the very active Holmes
County Juvenile Justice
and Delinquency Preven-
tion Council. The group
worked together for over
eight years and was di-
rectly responsible for tion
Assistance Program (GAP)
and the formation of the
Holmes County Teen
Court. Sheriff Dennis Lee
serves as chairman of the
Juvenile Justice Council
and the CASE Coalition.
The school board's
Graduation Assistance
Program (GAP), under the
direction of Jean West, is a
CASE coalition member.
GAP operates with fund-
ing from the school board
and prevention grants from
the Department of Juvenile
Justice and other state and
federal agencies to provide
educational opportuni-
ties for at-risk youth who
would otherwise face ex-
pulsion from school.
Over 90 percent of the
at-risk youth in this pro-
gram have substance abuse
education and prevention
programming at the GAP.
A school resource officer
from coalition partner,
Holmes County Sheriff's
Department, is based at the
GAP school to assist with
the program. Jean West is
a founding member of the
CASE coalition and serves
on its Board of Directors.
The Holmes County
Teen Court, under the di-
rection of Wendy Morgan,
is also an active CASE co-
alition member. Teen Court
provides a diversionary
program for youth charged
with first-time misdemean-


In September 2004 the CASE grand opening was held and the headquarters, located at 402 East North Avenue
in Bonifay, now serves as a base of operations to better position the coalition as a visible and tangible presence
in the community.


ors including tobacco use,
underage alcohol posses-
sion, and small marijuana
and similar drugs.
The centerpiece of the
Teen Court program is
education and prevention
programming involving
sanctions that include com-
munity service, videos, es-
says and substance abuse
counseling. Wendy Mor-
gan is a founding member
of CASE and serves on its
board of directors.
The work of the GAP
and Teen Court, in conjunc-
tion with the Department
of Juvenile Justice and
the courts, have helped the
community work smarter"
to address drug problems
by offering alternative
educational programming
and alternative judicial
sanctions for youth most
at-risk of substance abuse
in Holmes County.
The two-fold mission
of the CASE coalition is
to reduce substance abuse


among Holmes County
residents, especially youth,
by addressing factors that
increase the risk of sub-
stance abuse and promot-
ing factors that minimize
the risk of substance
abuse; and to establish and
strengthen collaboration
among all sectors in the
community to support the
efforts of the CASE coali-
tion to prevent and reduce
substance abuse among
Holmes County youth and
eventually, adults. CASE
is a collaborative effort
among law enforcement,
schools, churches and the
community.
In April 2004, CASE
was awarded funding
through the Governor's Of-
fice of Drug Control Policy
and Prevention 2003 Drug-
Free Reallocation Program.
That program provided
funding to lease space for
a coalition headquarters
and to purchase brochures,
pamphlets, videos and oth-


er drug education and pre-
vention materials. In May
2004, the CASE coalition
finalized negotiations with
the Holmes County Baptist
Association to lease space
in the old Nazarene Church
building, now owned by
the Holmes County Baptist
Association, which leases
the property to CASE in
exchange for maintenance
and utilities.
In September 2004 the
grand, opening was held
and the headquarters, lo-
cated at 402 East North
Avenue in Bonifay, now
serves as a base of opera-
tions to better position the
coalition as a visible and
tangible presence in the
community.
CASE is a non-profit 501
c(3) corporation who oper-
ates under a board of direc-
tors that includes, Sheriff
Dennis Lee, president and
executive director; Wendy
Morgan, vice president
and program director; Rev.


Shelley Chandler, trea-
surer; Catherine Wynne,
secretary; and two at-large
directors Jean West and
Rev. Eddie Eaton.
CASE operates primar-
ily through grants secured
by Wendy Morgan, who
also serves as business
manager and grants ad-
ministrator for the Holmes
County Sheriff's Depart-
ment in addition to her du-
ties as Holmes County Teen
Court Director and pro-
gram director for CASE. In
October 2004, CASE was
awarded $100,000 in fed-
eral funding through the
Drug-Free Communities
Support Program which, in
addition to paying salaries
and benefits, has allowed
the coalition to purchase an
office computer as well as
a laptop computer and pro-
jector to support grant-re-
lated activities by coalition
members and project staff.
Additional grant funds are
being used for bench and


print advertising.
CASE has also recently
been awarded two preven-
tion grants through the
Florida State University
Prevention Department
with funding provided by
the Florida Department
of Children and Families.
These grants will allow
CASE to produce a Neigh-
borhood Resource Guide
on meth as'well as provide
funding for SoulJam 2005
(see related article).
Coalition members have
donated over $100,000
of volunteered time and
in-kind resources as evi-
dence of their individual
and collective commitment
to financially support key
coalition strategies. CASE
has also received direct fi-
nancial support from local
churches and organizations
throughout the community
and has partnered with lo-
cal agencies to continue
such community support.
The coalition recently
received recognition for its
work in support of Family
Day and a check for $2,750
at the Statewide Prevention
Conference in Orlando.
CASE support facilita-
tor, Martha Willsey, is
based at the CASE head-
quarters and is available
to assist with information
and referrals for anyone
directly or indirectly strug-
gling with substance abuse.
Willsey also facilitates a
12-step Christian-based
support group which meets
twice a week on Tuesdays
and Fridays from 5:30 until
7 p.m. at CASE headquar-
ters. For more information,
contact CASE at 547-0880

ters at 402 E North Avenue

gency Department (E.D.), that
when needed by the citizens of
Washington and surrounding
communities will be there to
meet their requirements. This'
new addition will more than
double the amount of exam
rooms and will provide phy-
sicians and emergency staff
with the latest in equipment
and facilities to treat critically
ill and injured patients.
Also in progress is an
exterior building renovation
that will not only modernize
the building's appearance, but'
will also assist with energy
conservation and the overall
facility upkeep. This process
involves adding cosmetic
banding, window tint, window
caulking, brick cleaning and
resealing, and finally repaving
the hospital parking lot. All
of these transformations will
contribute to an up to date
facility and one in which the
citizens of Washington County
can be proud.
Interior improvements will
also be prevalent throughout
NFCH. One of the first in this
series of advancements is to
update nursing stations on
both the second and third floor.
This includes removing glass
that would otherwise prohibit
direct interaction with patients
and their families and adding
additional counters to increase
work space for NFCH associ-
ates. Moreover, in conjunction
with these facility upgrades,
there will also be multiple


equipment improvements. A
new patient monitoring system
that is recognized as the most
technologically advanced sys-
tem on the market, has been
installed in your community
hospital. The installation of
this Nihon Kohden system
will not only make NFCH a
leader in Northwest Florida
for cutting edge technology,
it will also allow our asso-
ciates to better care for our
community and you.
Additionally, the radiology
department is experiencing
many equipment upgrades.
New Ultrasound, a new CT,
and a new MRI are all part
of the departments improve-
ments for the upcoming year.
This new equipment will
provide the citizens of Wash-
ington County with the most
up to date radiological equip-
ment, and will allow NFCH to
provide MRI service in-house
for the first time ever.
Providing more patient
services to the people of
Washington County continues
to be a priority. Senior Spirit
and Senior Life Solutions are
the newest programs that are
now being offered at NFCH.
Senior Spirit, a program for
seniors fifty-five plus, offers
various discounts during hos-
pitalization, medical related
information, and access to
physician lectures. Senior
Life Solutions is the hospital's
newest outpatient program.
Senior Life Solutions is a
program dedicated to treating
older adults who suffer from
problems that are the conse-
quence of late life changes.
The program is specifically
designed for people 65 years
of age or older and for those
who are disabled and receiv-
ing Medicare benefits.
Increasing accessibility
to healthcare offered in the
community is also a priority
at NFCH. One way to increase
accessibility is to bring in
physicians that can provide
the community with expertise
that otherwise would require

All of these advancements in
healthcare are being made for
one reason, and that is to pro-
vide the people of Washington

communities we serve with
what they deserve, quality
healthcare they can count on.
NFCH associates work
each day to achieve their mis-

safe, compassionate, acces-

individuals in the communities
we serve.
Achievements:
The Joint Commission on


Accreditation of Healthcare
Organizations (JCAHO) com-
pleted its survey of Northwest
Florida Community Hospital
(NFCH) in July 2004.
The Joint Commission
(JCAHO) is an independent,
prestigious organization,
established more than fifty
years ago whose mission is
to continuously improve the
safety and quality of care
provided to the public through
the provision of health care
accreditation to health care
organizations. JCAHO sets
the standards by which health


care quality is measured in the
United States.
In order to receive and
maintain accreditation by
JCAHO, organizations must
have extensive on-site review
by health care professionals,
at least once every three years.
The purpose of the survey is
to evaluate the organization's
performance in areas that
affect the quality and safety
of patient care. Receiving
accreditation from JCAHO is
a nationwide seal of approval
that indicates an organiza-
tion meets high performance
standards. This process also
helps hospitals improve their
performance, raise the level of
patient care, and demonstrate
accountability in the rapidly
changing health care market-
place.
During his exit conference
with NFCH, the JCAHO
physician surveyor remarked
on the successful review by
stating "compared to other
acute care and critical access
hospitals your facility clearly
ranks in the upper echelon of
all hospitals surveyed. He
went on to comment on the
work environment by adding
"you have a good collaborative
working relationship here."
Patrick Schlenker, CEO
of Northwest Florida Com-
munity Hospital, commented
that, "The citizens of Wash-
ington County can be proud
of their hospital, and I am
proud of my staff and of all
the physicians that support
the hospital for making this
prestigious survey outcome
possible. This is an abso-
lutely remarkable outcome
considering all this hospital
has been through in the past
two years, and is further evi-
dence that the Washington
County Commission made
the correct decision in turning
the hospital over to a new or-
ganization and Board whose
entire focus is to improve the
quality and quantity of health
care provided right here in our
community."

Chamber provides fertile ground


The stated purpose of
the 'Washington County
Chamber of Commerce and
its Economic Development
Council is: to provide
proactive leadership in
improving the existing
business climate, promot-
ing economic development
and insuring growth and
stability while improving
the quality of life for the
citizens of Washington
County."
These words have been
the guiding principle of
the Chamber/EDC efforts
during the past year. We
have had a very productive
year and prospects are even
brighter for 2005. Among
the many items which we
are pleased to report is the
accomplishment of several
goals from our Strategic
Plan. Among those ac-
complishments were.
1. The 220-acre Wash-
ington County Industrial
Park continues to be mar-
keted to potential new busi-
nesses.
2. We continue to have
over 350 Chamber mem-
bers. This is truly excel-
lent for a county our size
and speaks well of the
Chamber's commitment
to its business community.
During 2004, the Chamber
welcomed 26 new busi-
nesses representing 72 new
employees.
3. The Chamber/EDC
continues it's coordination
efforts with City, County
and State governments to
encourage sound economic
development components
and zoning practices in
comprehensive plans.
4. As our area continues
to grow, housing improve-
ments and local infra-


structure become more
and more important. The
Chamber/EDC has contin-
ued its efforts to promote
Washington County to de-
velopers and to assist local
and county governments
with infrastructure planning
and development.
5. Our exciting Web
Site has been expanded to
provide a global Internet
presence for our County's
business communities:
www.washcomall.com.
The web site provides infor-
mation on and easy access to
local businesses and links to
local and state government
web sites. This global ve-
hicle is an ideal method to
promote the many benefits
our County has to offer to
prospective new business
and industry.
6. The Chamber/EDC
is proud to be an active
partner in support of our
education community and
continues its efforts to sup-
port strong education leg-
islation, participate in local
training programs provid-
ing "real world" business
experiences to students,
and encourage and expand
business' involvement and
commitment to education.
The Chamber/EDC's past
efforts have been recog-

who are a diverse group
of strong individuals from
around Washington County.
We look forward to a very
active and productive year
during 2005.
8. A Washington County
Chamber of Commerce
Foundation continues to-
ward establishing the old
Chipley City Hall as the
Chamber's new permanent
home. The process to have
the structure listed on the
National Register of His-
toric Places has begun.
9. Being the first of
its kind in the nation, the
Chamber continues the
HubZone Business Oppor-
tunity Center to assist small
businesses in Holmes, Gulf
and Washington counties
in becoming certified Hub-
Zone businesses. New in
2004, is the establishment
of three marketing per-
sonnel (one in each county)
to better serve our three
counties: Candace Croft
in Washington County, John
Hagans in Holmes County
and Sonny Chafin in Gulf
County. These HubZone
Marketers provide assis-
tance to businesses wish-
ing to do business with
the Federal Government.
The HubZone certification
allows our counties' small
businesses to compete on a
level playing field for Fed-
eral government contracts,
enabling these businesses
to grow economically
and provide employment
opportunities. The Hub-
Zone Business Opportu-
nity Center was funded
through grant funds from
the USDA Rural Enterprise
program. More information
on the HubZone Program
may be found at: http:
//ewebl.sba.gov/hubzone/
internet/
10. The Chamber's co-
ordination of the Chipley
Redevelopment Agency
provided aesthetic evi-
dence of their continuing
commitment to improve
our business communi-
ties. Through the Facade
Renovation Grant Program,
many businesses in down-
town Chipley have a bright
and pleasing new look. The
grant program provided
funds for facade improve-
ments within the CRA area
and the results have been
obvious to all those walk-
ing our sidewalks. The
.program has provided over
$200,000 in grant funds to
43 local property owners.

and in conjunction with

Dr. Stuart Steiger, chi-

S".. Church site gets marker


Chauncey Belser supervises in the exercise room of
Northwest Florida Therapy and Wellness Center.

Wellness Center

provides quality

care, close to home


Chauncey Belser is a
licensed physical therapist
and owner of Northwest
Florida Therapy and Well-
ness Center in Chipley.
NWFTWC is a joint venture
between Northwest Florida
Community Hospital and
Belser.
His operation contin-
ues to serve the residents
of Washington and sur-
rounding counties with
state-of-the-art equipment
and therapy solutions for
every situation.
Bleser is also an owner of
Integras Therapy and Well-
ness and Integras Property
Management.
He received his bach-
elor of science degree in
physical therapy from the
University of Florida and a
master of science in man-
agement with a health care
concentration from Troy
State University.
He is a member of the
American Physical Ther-
apy Association and the
Florida Physical Therapy
Association.
Not only is Belser ded-
icated to his field, but he
is also active in his com-
munity. He volunteers as
a Sunday school teacher
at First Baptist Church in
Bonifay.
Florida Board of Physical
Therapy (FBPT), whose
members are appointed by
the governor and confirmed
by the Florida Senate, is a


seven-member panel com-
posed of five physical ther-
apists and two individuals
from non-healthcare related
fields.
Belser was appointed
to the board in November
2002 to a four-year-term.
Board meetings are pub-
lic proceedings that take
place at least four times a
year.
FBPT protects the health
and safety of Florida's
residents and visitors by
establishing requirements
for licensure and through
diligent discipline of
practitioners who violate
practice acts defined by
Chapters 456, 486 and 120
of the Florida Statutes and
rule 64B17 of the Florida
Administrative Code.
Legislative intent of the
practice act is to ensure
that every physical thera-
pist practicing in the state
of Florida meets minimum
requirements for safe prac-
tice.
The board's responsi-
bility is to ensure that physi-
cal therapists who fall be-
low minimum competency
or who otherwise present a
danger to the public are dis-
ciplined or prohibited from
practicing in the state.
The board also es-
tablishes and monitors
continuing education of
physical therapists to ensure
their knowledge and skills
remain current.


This new building is for CPD evidence storage.

CPD gets storage building


Chipley Police Department
has a storage building behind
the their offices. Funds for the
construction were donated by
Orange Hill Soil and Water Con-
servation District.
City Administrator Jim Morris
thanked OHSWCD profusely for
their work. "They are an asset to
the city of Chipley and to Wash-
ington County," he said.


CPD Chief Kevin Crews
explained the building will be
used to store confiscated items.
He also thanked OHSWCD for
their help. He extended kudos to
Morris as well.
"Jim Morris is just about the
best boss I've ever had," he said.
"I went to him with a need and
three months later, we had a
building."


White Oak United Meth-
odist Church was destroyed
in a tornado that devastated
the southeastern part of Wash-
ington County on March 15,
2001.
The church was originally
organized prior to the Civil
War, making it one of the
oldest congregations in the
county.
A historic marker was
placed on the site in late
December in ceremonies
attended by several local of-
ficials.
Emergency Management
Director Roger Hagan orga-
nized the event, which was
attended by former church
members and pastors, as well
as Rev. Wesley Spivey, district
superintendent of the United
Methodist Church.
The marker's inscription
follows:
White Oak Methodist
Church was built in the
mid-1800's to help meet the
spiritual needs of a large
community of settlers in the
south central part of Wash-
ington County. The original
building was located ap-
proximately one and one-half
miles southeast of this marker
and was built on property do-
nated by James W. and Mary
Clemons. The original White
Oak Cemetery is still on that
spot which is located just off
Elkcam Boulevard. Built
among the scrub oaks and
pine trees the small church
included some of the earliest
homesteaders of Washington
County, some of them arriv-
ing before Florida became
a state in 1845. According
to the records of White Oak
Church, Wausau Circuit,


Methodist Episcopal Church
South, its first members joined
either by certificate, vows, or
baptism as early as 1852. The
last member was received into
the church in 1977. The orig-
inal church building burned
during the Civil War. When
the men of the community re-
turned from the war they built
a second church about one and
three quarter miles northwest
of the original site to place
it more in the center of the
White Oak Community. The
second church was located on
land donated by J.P. and Eva
Gilbert. Church membership
reached its peak in the early
1900's with 90 members on
record. In the years of 1929
and 1930 the church was used
as a school while the new Pine
Island School was being built.
As the timber, turpentine, and
farming industries gave way
to public employment the
community began to dwindle
as did the membership of the
church. In 1989 the member-
ship became so small it was
not possible to continue to
provide for regular church
services. Having served the
spiritual needs of the com-
munity for over 135 years
the doors of the church were
closed forever. On March
15, 2001, to the sorrow of
the community and the loss
of Washington County the
church was completely de-
stroyed by the strongest tor-
nado recorded in the county's
history. A small cemetery on
the property adjacent to this
marker and the original cem-
etery along with memories and
stories of the past are all that
remain of White Oak Method-
ist Church.

in Chipley. Sen. Bill Nelson
was on hand to do the honors
for Community South Credit

Earlier in the year, the fi-

a name change from Florida

Before he cut the red rib-

crowd that his family settled in
the area in 1829.
"I have grandparents buried
on both sides of Orange Hill


Highway," he said.
In conjunction with the rib-
bon cutting ceremony, there
were hot dogs, cotton candy,
drinks and snow cones.
A clown with balloons cir-
culated throughout the crowd,
while children played on an
inflatable slide and "bouncie"

Several door prizes were
handed out in the form of

Paul Chiofalojust opened
the Comic Palace on Main

enhanced by the beautiful de-
cor in the Lighthouse, Mardi-
Gras, Victorian, or Caribbean

ning and skin care products.

Members of Chipley City
and Washington County gov-
ernment gathered April 7 for
an open house to celebrate
upgrades to the Washington
County Animal Shelter.
Since that time there have
been many concerns about the
future of the facility.
Both governmental agen-
cies are actively pursuing
other options concerning care
and housing of abandoned and
lost pets.
During the ribbon cutting
ceremony, Washington Coun-
ty Commission Chairman
John Hall explained what had
been accomplished in the first
quarter of the year.
He said a new feline holding
room, euthanasia room, two
storage rooms, an adoption/
break room, expansion of
office space, resurfacing of
the parking lot and an outside
storage building were all part
of the renovation.
"We also want to thank the
DOC (Department of Correc-
tions) inmate crews and the


county building department
staff for all their hard work,"
said Hall.
He gave certificates of ap-
preciation to Chipley Coun-
cilwoman Karen Rustin and
Commissioner Lynn Cope.
Both have worked tirelessly
to upgrade the facility.
Chipley Mayor Tommy Mc-
Donald made an assessment
of the shelter. "We've come a
long way in the community,"
McDonald said. "This could
not have happened without
team work. I know it's not
where we need to be; it may
take awhile, but we will get
there."
All the construction and as-
sociated costs may have been
for nothing.
If present plans materialize,
Dr. Todd Anderson will take
care of animals picked up by
animal control.
He will be responsible for
adoptions, care, housing and
euthanasia. The operation will
be separate from the Rustin
Road animal shelter site.


Shops on both sides of the railroad do a brisk busi-
ness, even on a quiet Wednesday afternoon.

Gene, Trudee and Adrian Wills celebrate their latest venture.

Historic Chipley Antique

Mall has new owners


The old, two-story build-
ing on North Railroad Av-
enue has been a landmark
in Chipley since 1900.
Over the years, it has had
many lives; as a mercantile
store, a hardware store, a
bowling alley, automobile
assembly, and even served
as.a temporary courthouse
for Washington County at
one time.
Its newest incarnation
houses the Historic Chipley
Antique Mall. It is owned


and operated, as a family
business, by Gene, Trudee,
and Adrian Wills who cel-
ebrated their grand opening
on Sept. 3.
It has become the desti-
nation of choice in North-
west Florida for antique
hunters from as far away
as Alaska and as close as
Panama City.
Be sure to drop in to say
hello, have a cup of coffee,
and browse for something
you just can't do without.

trash to treasure, according
to owner Lita Branning.
Her shop, just north of
the U.S. Highway 90, State
Road 77 intersection, handles
painting, sculptures and
handmade gifts.
There is also a snack area,
featuring hot dogs and sand-


unique items
wiches.

Paul Chiofalo proudly displays his comic books.

Comic Palace is a laugh-

a-minute kind of place


Comic Palace owner,
Paul Chiofalo has been in
the comic business for over
20 years. Chiofalo has lived
in Chipley for 11 yrs.
"Comics are not only
fun to read, but educational
as well," he said. "That's
part of the reason I opened
this store. To give kids and
young adults somewhere to
go besides the local Wal-
mart parking lot."
Comic Palace has a large
selection of new and back


issue books along with
games like Magic. Gam-
ing tables and hard -to-find
toys are also available.
Comic Palace is also
planning a literacy program
which is set to begin in the
near future. The program
will be held on Tuesday
from 2 4 p.m.
"The literacy program is
free of charge. All ages are
welcome to come and learn
to read and have fun doing
it." Chiofalo said.


Due in large part to the efforts of Faye Middleton,
president of Vernon his historical plaque was placed
in the Vernon town square in 2004. It was dedicated on
July 3, prior to Vernon's Independence Day parade.

WHTC certified as "A" school by local officials


For over three decades
Washington-Holmes Tech-
nical Center (WHTC) has
been offering exciting op-
portunities for training in
many rewarding careers.
From its beginning in
1967, with nine programs
of study offered from rent-
ed facilities, the Center has
continually grown. Pres-
ently, 26 programs of study
are offered at the 26-acre
site equipped with modem
state-of-the-art buildings
and equipment.
Technical education is an
extremely important part of
the educational system of
our society. Over 85 per-
cent of the present careers
require some type of techni-
cal training which prepares
employees with industry
specific skills. This means
that, technically trained
employees are ready to go
to work with the skills that
business and industry need
the individuals to have.
This enables employers
to pay higher wages and
offer better employment
opportunities because
employees can do what is
required to enable business
and industry to function.
One of the major con-
cerns of individuals who
want to start school is the
financial aspect. WHTC of-
fers the same financial aid
programs that colleges and
universities offer. These
basic programs include,
VA, Pell Grant, College
Work Study, local fee-based
funds, and WHTC Founda-
tion Scholarships. Informa-
tion on all of these programs
is available at the Center.
Generally speaking, WHTC
is able to help a person in
some way if they are ready
to start school. There are
also many possibilities for
assistance through the One-
Stop Career Center located
on the WHTC campus.
One of the biggest bar-
gains existing in education
today is the concept of "dual
enrollment" for high school
students. It allows high
school students to attend
the Technical Center on a
half-time basis and receive
career training and attend


WHTC celebrates its "A" school status.


their high school half-time
for their required courses.
Students receive elective
credit for the career course
and therefore, do not have
to pay tuition. A regular
high school diploma is
earned through their high
school and they participate
in all the same activities as
the students who are not du-
ally enrolled. Upon gradua-
tion, students not only have
their high school diploma,
they also have a technical
certificate and marketable
skills for the job market.
Everyone needs career
skills to enter directly into
the work force or to enhance
college training and possi-
bly be able to help finance
further education.
Continuing in the tradi-
tion of growth and improve-
ment, WHTC has many new
educational opportunities.
An Applied Technology
Diploma (ATD) can now be
earned at WHTC in the area
of customer service. In ad-
dtion to preparing students
for entry-level employment
in the customer service oc-
cupations a student receives
18 credit hours to be trans-
ferred to a community col-
lege if the student enrolls
within a three-year period
of time.
There is a lot of excite-
ment at WHTC about the
new legislation which al-
lows Georgia and Alabama
residents to pay the same
fees as Florida residents.
No longer are non-Florida
residents charged out-of-
state tuition. This is a tre-
mendous savings. This will
especially help with some
of WHTC's unique courses


such as Commercial Vehicle
Driving, Corrections, Heavy
Equipment Operations, and
Nursing. These are careers
that have excellent salaries
and great placement. Many
Alabama and Georgia res-
idents are within an easy
commute to WHTC. Once
again, a very affordable way
to get career training that
will have changing affects.
WHTC is proud to of-
fer one of its ongoing day
programs in the evening.
Because of popular de-
mand, and to meet the
requirements of the health
care industry, the Nursing
Assistant portion of the
Patient Care Technician
course is offered in the
evening. There are many
career opportunities in the
health care field and this is
a way to train part-time.
WHTC has expanded its
day and evening Adult Edu-
cation program. Classes are
now offered in Bonifay and
Chipley. There are times
and locations available to
meet almost any schedule.
The Center is very fortunate
to have the Literacy Volun-
teers of America on cam-
pus. The valuable services
of this agency are available
to those who desire to
enhance their educational
level. Much of this help is
for those for which English
is a second language.
The Correctional Officer
course continues to grow
with both day and evening
classes. The day program
is an exciting program in
which a student can train
and work at the same time.
As a part of the program,
the firing range for the cen-


ter has been enhanced and
renovated.
The Heavy Equipment
Operations program stays
close to its student capacity.
This program has recently
been upgraded with the
purchase of new equipment.
There is a tremendous need
for heavy equipment opera-
tors and mechanics because
of the widely expanding
development in Northwest
Florida.
Washington-Holmes
Technical Center is proud
to announce that it has been
designated an "A" school.
This honor is based on the
outstanding performance of
the faculty and staff in the
service to the community
in the areas of training and
placement of area citizens.
WHTC constantly out
performs other institutions
from throughout the state.
This designation indicates
the ongoing, positive im-
pact that the center has on
this region and its citizens.
Technical programs pre-
pare students for employ-
ment in the ever-changing
world of work. Eighty-five
percent of the jobs today
require some post second-
ary education but less than
a four-year college degree.
Vocational-Technical edu-
cation helps meet this need
by providing post secondary
trained workers assuring
a steady supply of skilled
work-ready employees.
It is a known fact that
those secondary and post
secondary students who
completed vocational tech-
nical programs are more
likely to be employed and
earn higher wages than their
counterparts who did not
pursue any vocational pro-
grams. The Washington-
Holmes Technical Center
is proud to offer training to
the citizens of local commu-
nities in 26 different occu-
'pational areas, and pledges
to keep the training relevant
to today's job market.
For further information

1180,visit the web site at
www.whtc.org or come
by the Center at 757 Hoyt
Street in Chipley.


Sam Mitchell's widow, Nellie, cuts the ribbon officially opening Sam Mitchell Highway. Mitchell served in the
Florida House of Representatives from 1956 until 1960, and again from 1978 until 1994. He was an advocate
for the people of Washington County. Mitchell, who died Nov. 15, 2003, was a native of Vernon.


The Chuck Wagon serves a great buffet lunch.

Chuck Wagon changes hands


There are two new faces
at the Chuck Wagon House
Restaurant.
That is because, after 18
years of hard work, Eddie and
Jo Davis, along with partners,
Art and Bonnie Aukema, have
decided to retire.
On May 27, Tom and Betty
Sue Bruckner purchased the
business.
Although they are new resi-
dents of Chipley, they are not
new to the area.
Tom grew up in DeFu-
niak Springs, graduated from
Florida State University with a
degree in accounting, and has
been in the restaurant business
for more than 30 years.
Betty Sue is a native of
Troy, Ala., where she grad-
uated from Troy State Uni-
versity.
What attracted them to
Chipley was the small-town
atmosphere, friendly folks
and a sense of coming home
to family.
"It has always been my
dream to own my own restau-
rant, but I just never thought
I'd owned the Chuck Wagon,"
Tom said.
Having moved from Talla-
hassee, when asked how she
felt about leaving city life,
Betty Sue said, "God has truly
blessed us in allowing us to
begin this new venture in our
lives. Our families live close
by, and we are excited about
becoming part of the caring
community that Chipley has
already shown us it is."
Because the Bruckners be-
lieve, 'if it ain't broke, don't
fix it,' they asked the Davises
to stay on board for several
weeks to help them learn the


Chuck Wagon traditions.
When asked about changes
they plan to make, the Bruck-
ners say they do not plan to
change something that 'ain't
broke.'
They have, however, added
a barbecue buffet on Monday
nights, which has proved to be
very popular with their long-
standing customers.
Thursday night is prime
rib night at the Chuck Wagon
House, be sure to stop in to try
this sumptuous roast.
Buffet lunches, which in-
clude an amazing variety of
foods hot and fresh from the
kitchen, as well as an exten-
sive salad bar and soup table,
and even dessert, remains a
Washington County peren-
nial favorite. Drive by any
weekday beginning at about
11:30, and you will witness a
packed parking lot.
Don't let that stop you from
turning in, there is plenty of
room for everyone, as the
restaurant's wait staff, seems
to always find an empty seat
for their customers.
Besides the lunch buffet,
he restaurant is known foi
its great menu selection, the
Tuesday night seafood buffet,
and, of course, the homemade
cakes.
The Bruckner's would like
to invite everyone in the com-
munity to please come eat at
the Chuck Wagon House, and
while you are there, introduce
yourself so they can get to
know everyone in the com-
munity.
"We look forward to meet-
ing everyone and becoming a
part of the Panhandle family,"
they said.


Kiddie Karousel is open from 6:30 a.m. until 11 p.m.

Relax with more than massage at Paradise Found.

Paradise Found offers

more than massage


In an unassuming home,
nestled in the woods south-
west of Chipley, one can
find a place of relaxation and
reflection.
Paradise Found, owned
and operated by Gloria
Abbott, is not a health and
S fitness center; it's not a spa
either. It is a place to relax,
to get in touch with who you
are and who you want to be
physically, spiritually and
emotionally.
Abbott is a licensed mas-
sage therapist.
Her fee-based services
include the following mas-
sages: ETPS Therapy,
therapeutic and deep tissue
massages, as well as sports
massage, touch for health,
relaxation, Swedish massage
and reflexology.
She also has a massage
chair, which can be trans-
ported to service clients.
In the past, Abbott plied
her trade in Tampa in such
S high-stress offices as Bank
of America and Price-Wa-
terhouse.
Body wraps, including
mineral, sea clay and herbal,
are also available.
Several facials, which
include deep cleansing, re-
hydration, exfoliation, sea
clay mask and narissa, are


available.
Permanent makeup is of-
fered as well. Eyeliner, lip
liner, eye brows and lip tints
can be applied at Paradise
Found.
With airbrush tanning,
manicures, pedicures and
aromatherapy, rounding out
the fee-based services, this
bit of paradise in the woods'
is an all-around place to in-
dulge yourself.
There are also many com-
plimentary services such as
a complete array of exercise
equipment, a meeting room
and a health and fitness ref-
erence library.
Glamour makeup and skin
care mineral makeup are
available for purchase.
Abbott is a Washington
County native. She is the
daughter of Edna Peacock
and the late Curtis Peacock,
who was a Washington
County Sheriff's deputy.
"We specialize in whole
body strength and resto-
ration," Abbott explains.
"This is a ministry for me. I
have been so blessed in my
life, this is my way of giving
back."

WestPoint Stevens certifies Bettei


its commitment to the area


Once again growth
is the operative word
at WestPoint Stevens'
Chipley Plant. Now in
its 22nd year of operation
as the company's only
location in the Sunshine
State, the Chipley plant
is currently expanding
its manufacturing and
distribution into newly
leased quarters in nearby
Marianna. A total of
some 200 associates will
be added at the main
Chipley plant and its:
satellite location.
This move comes in
the face of a rapidly
developing global
market, in which
companies including
WestPoint Stevens are
finding it necessary to
source more product
from overseas in order
to remain competitive.
WestPoint Stevens is
committed, however, to
continuing a domestic
manufacturing base, and
recent consolidations of
its bed manufacturing
will bring more work to
Chipley.
"Chipley Plant will be
the Company's domestic
production center for
bedroom accessories,"
noted Plant Manager
Terry Ellis. "As we
considered our options
for expanding to handle
the additional work,
the leasing of a modern
existing building in the
Marianna Industrial Park
proved to be the most
cost-efficient."
The 260,000 square
feet of the new Marianna
location, which will
function as a part of
Chipley Plant,-will house
an expanded distribution
function, as well as a
small manufacturing
base that will support
manufacturing at the
main plant. The Marianna
facility should be in
production and shipping
in April. Chipley Plant
will also maintain its
2002 expansion, in
which the plant leased
a nearby 50,000 square-
foot facility from the city
of Chipley.
"We will be actively
seeking new associates,"
said Ellis. "We offer
training, competitive
wages and outstanding
benefits, as well as a
high-tech workplace
with state-of-the-art
equipment. We have
an excellent team of
associates, many of
whom have-been with
us continuously since


r Built Buildings expands


Better Built Buildings
continues to expand its
offerings.
Owners Mark Odom
and Daryl Foor recently
made a decision to
abandon their portable
building business.
"We are now building
full-fledged metal
buildings," said Odom.
Better Built Buildings


is offering hybrid
building construction.
They work in both
the commercial and
residential venue.
."We will work
with our customers
in any way possible,"
Odom continued. "For
professional, experienced
construction, give us a
call today."


Just recently, they
began marketing a retail
line of roll-up doors, as
well as metal roofing
and wall panels.
Better Built Buildings
is located at 1284
Jackson Ave., across
from the Courthouse
in Chipley. Call them
at 415-1998 for more
information.

our plant. opened in
1983, and now we look
forward to welcoming
new associates who
will be focused and
motivated to help keep
us moving ahead."
Chipley Plant will
continue to produce
comforters, bed skirts,
pillow shams, decorative
pillows, bedspreads and
other accessory products
that give the bed all
the finishing touches.
Added to the regular
Chipley mix will be
similar products, as well
as window treatments,
formerly produced
at other Company
locations.
The plant will
continue fabricating all
the bedding accessories
for the Walt Disney
Home license held by
WestPoint Stevens and
will now turn out the
accessory items that are
domestically produced
for the upscale Ralph
Lauren Home license
as well as the new
luxury-brand Charisma
license.
Currently, some
700 skilled Chipley
associates are turning
out an average of
200,000 items per week
utilizing high-tech, state-
of-the-art manufacturing
equipment. When the
expansion is complete,
a workforce of about 900
will ramp up production
to an average of 300,000
units weekly.
To its roster of
customers such as
Target, JCPenney, Sears
and Wal-Mart, Chipley
will add stores like
Kohl's, Kmart, Dillards,
May Department Stores
Company, SteinMart,
Linens 'n Things and
Bed, Bath and Beyond.
"We'll be making
accessories for the full
range of retailers that
WestPoint Stevens does
business with," Ellis
said.


Chipley Plant is
recognized as an
outstanding example
of workplace fitness
and safety and today is
cited as a "best practice"
ergonomic workplace
by the U.S. Department
of Labor's Occupational
Safety and Health
Administration (OSHA).
With the demands of
the plant's fast-paced
production, Chipley
management regards
the health and safety of
Chipley associates as
a primary concern and
sees ergonomics as a key
element of successful
production.
The plant also
continues its membership
in OSHA elite Voluntary
Protection Program,
which means stringent
periodic inspection and
recertification by OSHA
representatives.
"In our last
recertification in 2003,
a team of three or four
OSHA representatives
spent about a week at
the plant, scrutinizing
every aspect of our
safety program and our
accident prevention
performance," Ellis
explained. "The
requirements are
stringent, but the plant
was recertified without
any difficulty. We look
forward to achieving
this again at our next
recertification.
"There is an excellent
atmosphere for growth
and development in
this area and WestPoint
Stevens continues to
benefit from being a
part of the industrial
community here," Ellis
emphasized.
"Chipley Plant's
continued growth reflects
the cooperation and spirit
of working together has
been characteristic of
our relationship with
the community since we
began operations here,"
he added.

Washington County
officials welcomed the
newest park in the coun-
ty's burgeoning inventory
of recreation facilities on
Oct. 29.
Campbell Park, named
after the woman who do-
nated the land on which it
sits, was formally opened
with a speech by County
Commissioner Charles
Brock.
"I searched for two
years for property to
build this park," Brock
said. "One week before
I lost the grant money,
Miss Vida Mae (Camp-
bell) came forward with
this land."
He thanked inmates
from Washington County
Correctional Institution
for their work on the
project.
All the work for the
$150,000 project was
done in-house. Credit was
given to the county's road
and bridge department for
the earth work they did.


Brock also gave credit
to county employee, Su-
san Lawson, who wrote
the grant that obtained
the funding.
David Corbin, the
county's parks and recre-
ation director, also spoke
at the ceremonies.
"This has been a lot of
hard work," he said. "It
is a small token of how
much we care for this
community and everyone
here."
Folks have since en-
joyed the facility, which
includes two playground
areas, a basketball court,
two pavilions and bath-
rooms.
It has been used on
many occasions in the
last several months for
birthday parties, meetings
and family outings.
All areas of the park,
located at 4112 Jackson
Community Road, be-
tween New Hope and
Ebro, are handicapped
accessible.


Playgrounds and a pavilion welcome users of Northside Park.

Northside Park is a reality
*:': ..] .* i j


Rain, wind and cold did-not,
stop the city of Chipley from
taking time out from a busy
Friday to dedicate the newest
addition to their park system.
A ribbon cutting to officially
open the park was held in Au-
gust of 2004.
At the dedication cere-
monies, Councilwoman Karen
Rustin, who ramrodded the
project, welcomed those hearty
souls who turned out for the
occasion on Jan. 28, 2005.
She thanked all involved
with the project, including her


- fellow council members, City
Administrator Jim Morris, city
workers and Gulf Power, who
donated the land where the
park sits.
Dedication ceremonies
served to honor the memory
of Harold Moody Strickland,
a north end Chipley resident,
who dedicated his life to the
betterment of the community.
Rustin read a brief biog-
raphy as part of the cere-
monies.
Milton Strickland, served as
spokesperson for the family.


Northside Park is dedicated to the memory of Harold Moody
Strickland who lived most of his life on the north side of town.


"I've lived in north Chipley
all my life," he said.
Strickland recalled when
there were only 20 houses
north of Glenwood Avenue.
"Now it's the most popu-
lated, almost overpopulated
part of town," he said.
"I appreciate the efforts be-
ing made to accommodate the
residents of north Chipley,"
Strickland added. "The qual-


ity of life here has radically
improved over the last two
years."
Following his speech, act-
ing in her capacity as mayor
pro-tem, Linda Cain recalled
the elder Strickland.
"Harold supported me when
I first ran for city council," she
said. "He was a dear friend of
mine and the city. I still love
him dearly."

When this structure, above, was officially opened in May of 2004, instead of a ribbon,
Washington County Commissioner John Hall and Jail Administrator James Barnes
used bolt cutters to sever a chain at the county's new utility and maintenance build-
ing, which is located on jail property. According to Sheriff Fred Peel, the building
cost $37,500 to erect. It was built with seized funds and a $5,300 contribution from
Orange Hill Soil and Water Conservation District. With this kind of resourcefulness,
the county bore no expense for the project. The building is being used to perform
routine maintenance and repairs on the sheriff department's fleet of vehicles.
!


Ekahi Accounting and Tax Service, which is also an authorized Nextel representa-
tive, has moved its office to 3029 Main Street in Vernon.


As the firemen sat down to eat at their department's open house, an alarm came
in. They immediately left plates laden with barbecued chicken and ribs, with all
the trimmings, to answer the call.

An open house was held

get the offices and training

Those attending Orange Hill Park's official grand opening were treated to a deli-
cious barbecue lunch.


Tommy's Auto Glass, long a force in the Marianna business community, opened a
Chipley location in 2004. Here two of the businesses service vehicle load up for a
hard day's work.

Chipley location on Hwy 90


This is one of two pavilions available for residents' enjoyment, out of the elements.
There are also barbecue grills for picnic lunches. The other pavilion can be seen in
the background of the playground picture, below.


Anyone passing the
old Monk's Service Sta-
tion on Jackson Avenue
in Chipley probably has
noticed the building and
surrounding lot have been
spruced up quite a bit.
Jonathan Fuqua and
Jeffrey Holland, who own
and operate Tommy's
Auto Glass of Chipley,
are responsible for the
transformation.
The business offers a
full service glass shop in-
cluding auto, residential
and commercial, accord-
ing to Fuqua.
"We have windows/
mirrors, shower doors,
all types of glass," he
said.


They also will install
windshields for motor-
ists who find theirs unex-
pectedly cracked due to
the heat or road hazards.
In addition, they have
other types of auto glass,
flat glass, table tops,
french doors, sliding
doors, most any type of
residential or commercial
glass imaginable.
Installers Rodney
Lanier and Ellis "Pete"
Floyd are available to
serve their customers.
Teresa Jackson handles
all office duties, alternate-
ly serving as customer
service representative,
receptionist and in-house
bookkeeper.

Orange Hill
The newest park in
Washington County's
portfolio was officially
opened in ceremonies late
in the year.
Commissioner Lenzy
Corbin did the ribbon cut-
ting honors for the park
located behind the fire
department in the Orange
Hill community.
Corbin said, "A lot of ef-
fort went into this project.
Larry Enfinger was on the
board and got this grant.
Mr. Walters of Orange Hill
Soil and Water Conserva-
tion District did it within
the scope of the grant."
Don Walters explained
practically everything was
purchased in Washington
County.
According to Walters,
Kelly Brock from ABC

Fence supplied the wood
chips on the playground,
while Townsend Building
Supply handled the raw
materials.
Corbin then explained
the finances behind the
construction.
"We had two bids,
one was for $525,000,
with Orange Hill bid-
ding $168,000," he said
"I told Don we only had
$145,000, and Orange
Hill Soil and Water came
through. I am real pleased
Don did us the kind of job
he did us."
He then joked, refer-
ring to the four years he
was not a commissioner,
"Thank you, Larry Enfin-
ger for the vision to get
the grant while I was on
vacation."

Chipley and Bonifay
Physical and Aquatic
Therapy Centers, partner
outpatient physical
therapy clinics, have
continued to experience
dramatic' growth since
opening their doors.
Owners Ruben
and Lorrie Laurel are
very pleased with the
tremendous amount of
community support they
have received, and are
excited to be able to
provide these valuable
services to the residents
of Chipley, Bonifay and
the surrounding areas.
The offices in Chipley
and Bonifay coordinate
efforts to provide optimal
service and convenience
to their clients.
The clinics have
continued to increase
staff to provide expert
care for the growing
client.base.
Progress over the past
year has included the
very welcome addition
of physical therapist,
Teresa Wagner. She
is a Holmes County
native, and currently
lives in Chipley with
her husband and three
daughters. "She has
been a blessing to our
purpose," says Lorrie.
The two facilities
currently have two
registered physical


therapists, one licensed
physical therapy
assistant, one licensed
massage therapist
and eight support
personnel on staff, with
an additional licensed
physician therapist under
contract to begin work in
April 2005.
The businesses have
been so successful, that
work has begun to open
Graceville Physical
Thera-py, a sister clinic,
in the very near future
to even better serve the
area.
Patient care and cus-
tomer satisfaction are
of the highest priority
for all employees,
who strive to meet the
needs of the diverse
patient population
seeking physical therapy
services.
Both facilities provide
complete outpatient
rehabilitation services in
all areas of orthopedics,
sports injuries and rehab,
neurological rehab,
cardiac and respiratory
rehab, workman's comp
injuries, wound care,
pediatrics, post-surgical
rehab, vestibular rehab,
amputations, hand
therapy and arthritis.
Aquatic therapy in
indoor, heated pools
is also a valuable tool
utilized in both clinics


in the rehabilitation
process, and is also
available for after-care
programs.
Lorrie Laurel, a
registered physical
therapist, says that having
a local facility that offers
expert physical therapy
care is invaluable.
"In the past, many
of our clients have had
to drive to Dothan or
Panama City for their
physical therapy services.
Now, these clients can
receive quality care right
in our community," she
said.
The businesses are
independently owned
and operated.
They offer all private
insurances, Blue Cross/
Blue Shield, Tricare,
Medicare, Medicaid and
Florida Healthy Kids.
Both offices will
assist in coordinating
transportation
arrangements.
"Our goal is to assist
patients in overcoming
life-threatening and
life-style-threatening
conditions, help them
regain and maintain as
independent a life as
possible, and do it at a
fair and reasonable cost
that does not create a
financial burden for the
patient and their family,"
says Ruben Laurel.

Building a gazebo, top, was a labor of love for Councilwoman
Marion Lee, bottom left, and Orange Hill Soil and Water Con-
servation District Director Don Walters, bottom right.


Gazebo is
Chipley has a gazebo.
Officials gathered just
before Christmas to offi-
cially dedicate the structure
located next to the railroad
depot downtown.
"The way to tell a healthy
community is things hap-
pen," Mayor Tommy Mc-
Donald said. "We have
councilmen who don't just
got to meetings and vote,
they take on projects.
"My favorite saying is,
I love Chipley. It's such
a beautiful community
and getting prettier all the
time."
Councilwoman Marion
Lee, took the lead in build-
ing the gazebo.
She explained the idea for
the structure was hatched


dedicated
in October when the Pride
committee met to discuss
Christmas decorations.
"I told them," she said, "I
don't think this is possible
because the city of Chipley
can't afford it.
"I knew as I got to the
house, I was going to call
Don Walters at Orange Hill
(Orange Hill Soil and Water
Conservation District)."
In addition, Lee said
benches and landscaping
would come in the spring.
"The reason we do so
much is because of the
wonderful spirit of cooper-
ation we have in Chipley,"
she said. "I can visualize
birthday parties, band con-
certs, plays put on, maybe
caroling."

Building a sidewalk from Chipley High School and Roulhac Middle School was a joint project in-
volving the Community Traffic Safety Team (CTST), Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT),
Washington County and the city of Chipley. In an effort to expedite construction, Washington County
commissioners and members of Washington County School Board fronted the money, which will be re-
imbursed by FDOT. Members of CTST identified the sidewalk as one of its most important projects.

golfing weather. The staff
at Covenant Hospice has
decided to move their
annual fall fundraising golf
