Board

approves

offer to

business

prospects
JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
The Washington County
Board of County Commis-
sioners approved a tentative
agreement to offer three pro-
spective businesses space at
the industrial park. The action
was taken at a special called
meeting on Thursday morning
at the County Annex. I
Managing Director Ted Ev-
erett of the Washington Coun-
ty Chamber of Commerce and
Chipley City Administrator
Jim Morris brought a draft
agreement before the Board
that called for shifting the area
planned for sprayfields that
would be part of Chipley s
\ aste\ after system improve-
ments to another part of the
park to free up property for
the three prospective busi-
ness clients.
These businesses could
bring over 300 new jobs to
Washington County. .
The three possible investors
are code named "Project Pipe,"
'Project Lumber" and "Project
Sorbet." Since recruiting new
businesses is a very competi-
tive process, it is often neces-
sary to keep potential clients
anonymous until a contract
is signed. No contracts have
been signed yet in this case.
The businesses are seeking
a "cluster" location between
Pensacola and Tallahassee
with rail access and utili-
ties. Economic Development
Commission (EDC) Chairman
Gary Clark said in December
that Washington County has
been rated first among all the
possible sites the businesses
have reviewed.
The proposed agreement
approved by the Board has
the following provisions:
*The City of Chipley would
take option on 102 acres in the
industrial park running north


Chamber Managing Director Ted Everett and Chipley City Administrator Jim Morris were on
hand to make a presentation to the Board of County Commissioners on an offer to three pro-
spective businesses for the Industrial Park.


and south.
*The County would declare
that the remaining property be
sold by the county EDC.
*A survey is needed for these
three parcels to include legal
descriptions: 40 acres for, "Proj-
ect Pipe," 10 acres for "Project
Lumber," and 5-acres-for "Proj-
ect Sorbet." ;
*The Chamber will get sales
agreements in place based on
acreage in the above.
*Offer 30 acres with a five-year
option to "Project Pipe" contin-
gent on the number of new jobs
created and the amount of capital
investment.
*Get City and County engineers
involved as soon as possible.
*Begin mitigation plans. There
are wetlands involved in the
property swap and mitigation
through the state Department of
Environmental Protection could
be necessary. Any other environ-
mental issues will also have to be
worked out.
The County will have first
right of refusal for purchase of
any excess property.
It will be necessary to provide
a rail spur and road access to the
site, which is located on the east
side of the part of the industrial
park fronting Jackson Avenue


(Hwy. 90).
The Board also approved
spending up to $50,000 to assist
with engineering for the relo-
cated sprayfields site.
A proposed land swap with
the Washington County School
Board was rejected by School


Board members in Decem-
ber. This proposal would have
moved planned sprayfields to
School Board property that is
part of the old Chipley High
School property. Members who

Parking


issues


discussed


at Council
SANDRA OHMER
Staff Writer
Downtown business owner
Gene Willis appeared before
Chipley City Council at the
workshop held on Jan. 5. Wil-
lis suggested that Council ad-
dress the parking problem in the
downtown area. He reported that
the west side has only 18 parking
slots to service six active busi-
ness. That gives each business
three parking spaces each if di-
vided fairly. In addition to the six
businesses, there are two vacant
buildings one of which is being
considered for a food service
establishment. The opening of
another business would further
stress the parking problem.
It was reported that a new res-
taurant at 1370A North Railroad
avenue is planning to seat over
50 people. During lunch hour
patrons of this business could
possibly occupy every parking
space available which would
inhibit parking for customers of
the other businesses.
Willis suggested the city needs
to look at how they issue permits
to businesses in the downtown
area. He said, "Permitting and
licensing of high-occupancy
businesses such as restaurants
in areas that cannot support the
traffic may not be in the best in-
terest of other businesses sharing
such limited resources.
"Business licenses should be
tied to'the type of business being
operated and the impact of other
businesses in the area."

Suggestions made
Willis made the following sug-
gestions to the council:
*Limited parking duration (five
minute loading zones, 30-min-
utes adjacent to shop entrances.
one-or-two hours limits for on-
street parking in commercial
areas), to encourage turnover an
favor shorter-term users (since
higher priority trips, such as
deliveries and shopping, tend to
park. for shorter' duration than
lower priority trips.)
*Consider more surface park.
ing in the downtown area.

COUNCIL.
Continued from page 1
Possibly purchasing the
old BP station and con-
venience store of Jackson
Avenue and Main Street.
*Better use of signs to
direct motorists to existing
parking lots that are free to
customers and employees
with no time limits.
*Encourage employees
and customers who need
more time to use off-site
parking facilities so spaces
that are more convenient
are. available for short-
term users.
'Hire a consulting firm to
complete a parking study
of the downtown area to
document the situation.
Willis mentioned the
possibility of making
Railroad Avenue a walking
park area cutting off street
access, planting trees, add-
ing benches and tables. Pa-
trons would be guided to
off-site parking areas. This
concept has been put into
place successfully in other
cities according to Willis.
SMayor Linda Cain said
the City did not have
the money at the present
time to purchase addi-
tional property for parking.
Councilwoman Marion
Lee suggested that patrons
be directed to the park-
ing lot behind the Dollar
General store or the public
parking area at the corer
of 5th Street and Railroad
Avenue.
Council discussed the
possibility of parking
signs to restrict parking
time and direct patrons to
other parking areas. Lee
suggested that Willis call a
business owners' meeting
where all business owners
could work to solve the
problem.

The following items
were presented at the
vorkshop and wilff Be act&d

three businesses are "envi-

The Chamber's eco-

Smith, said that state fund-
ing should be available for
industrial access, including
the road spur.
"I feel pretty confident


knowing what they have
done in the past," he said.
The next step will be
for representatives of the
three businesses to come
to the county and review
the sites. If it meets with
their approval, the busi-

of intent to locate here.
These letters could also
be used to apply for eco-

including industrial access
grants.

Character First adopted by businesses, local schools


Character education is a
priority for many business-
es and other organizations.
Businesses are recogniz-
ing that good character is
the most important trait
for a ne\\ employee. Da-
vid Melvin, president of
the Character Council of
Florida, Inq,, (CCF) was
on hand last fall to discuss
character education.
CCF is the local version
of the non-profit Character
First program founded by
businessman Tom Hill of
Oklahoma City, OK. "Hill
found that more time was
spent addressing personal
problems of employees
than anything else," Mel-
vin said. This led Hill


and his staff to develop.
character education for his
employees.
The goal of Character
First is to help people
reach their full potential
by pursuing character first.
This came about when Hill
recognized that bad char-
acter, which includes ev-
erything from theft to poor
relations with customers,
was costing businesses a
considerable amount of
income. Schools were see-
ing more and more serious
offenses by students.
Character has several
components, Melvin said:
*Character determines
the response to difficult
situations. "You don't


know you are a loyal em-
ployee until the going gets
tough," Melvin said.
*Character determines
who someone is when no
one else is looking.
*Character is the most
accurate predictor of fu-
ture actions. Using a job
application that focuses on
character, "you get a real
feel of what kind of a per-
son they are," Melvin said.
*Good character is the
motivation to do what is
right. "Everyone has a 100
percent truthfulness poten-
tial," People do the right
thing out of three different
motivations: Fear, the pos-
sibility of personal gain,
and because it's the right


thing to do, Melvin said.
"You want to develop
a culture that thrives on
character."
Hill and other busi-
ness people who went
through CTI training and
instituted Character First
in their workplaces said
the results were excellent,
with much better customer
service and more business.
In another example, Hill
said that at his corporation
workman's comp claims
fell from 24,000 a month
to 2,000.
"The bottom line is that
our customers benefit,"
Melvin said.
CTI helps businesses
and organizations set up


character training using
workshops and consultants,
emphasizing:
*Good character based
on 49 good character traits
(matched with a bad char-
acter trait).
*Monthly newsletters ad-
dress a good character trait.
Church sermons are even
available.
*Provide examples of
real people responding to
the teaching.
*Have organizations
.require good character.
Raise expectations within
an organization and dem-
onstrate good character
through organizational
policies.
-Recognize positive


character at regular em-
ployee meetings. 'Praise
the positive qualities of
employees and challenge
others. Recognize an as-
sociate and the character
trait that enabled them to
do their job.
In 1998-99 the state
legislature mandated char-
acter education for Florida
schools. Character First
was first taught to local
teachers beginning in 2001.
and about 2,000 teachers in
Northwest Florida partici-
pate in the program.

Vernon Middle
School WINGS
travel to
Disney World
On Saturday, Decem-
ber 10, 2005, the Vernon
Middle School WINGS
program took a group of
46 to Walt Disney World's
Magic Kingdom for the
final component of their
recent poetry,projects. Stu-
dents enjoyed the wonder-
ful shows, beautiful light
show parades, and thrilling
rides of the amusement
park in search of Mickey
Mouse.
Prior to the trip, WINGS
students researched, com-
posed and typed a detailed
poem regarding Mickey
Mouse's popularity, which
has resulted in the status as
an American hero. Once
completed, the students'
poetry was compiled into a
book and is currently avail-
able in the Vernon Middle
School library. Each stu-
dent was also required to
name a person in his own
life that he views as a hero.
The hero projects are a
continuation from a previ-
ous presentation brought
to the WINGS program
from Donna Wissinger, a
famous flutist and motiva-
tional speaker.
Wissinger has been
working with the Vernon
Middle School WINGS
program throughout the
academic year to define

Enjoying their Thanksgiving feast at a well-decorated
table are some of the older WCCS students.


Corn on the cob seems to be the favorite food of these
WCCS youngsters at their Thanksgiving feast.


There were no crock pots to keep food warm at the
first few observances of Thanksgiving. And the tables
were not so elaborately set.

Speaker at Historical Society
The Washington County Historical Society is proud
to announce that the author of "Vernon, The Heart of
Old Washington County," Mary Cathrin May will be the
speaker for our next meeting. May will talk about her
book and her memories of Vernon.
The meeting will begin at noon at the Historical So-
ciety Museum on Sat. Jan. 7. The meeting is a pot luck
lunch affair and the public is invited to bring their favor-
ite potluck dish and join in.
May was born in Vernon in 1939. She grew up there
at a time when the town was filled with a number of resi-
dents who vividly recalled the Town's early days.
She graduated from Vernon High School in 1956 and
joined the U.S. Air Force where she served her country
as an Air Traffic Controller and a reporter for the Apollo
space program. She has written two books so far: the one
mentioned above and "The Steadfast Line: the Story of
the 27th Bomb Group".


It's easy to tell who the Indians are at this Thanksgiv.
ing feast. They seem to outnumber the Pilgrims at this
observance held at WCCS.
With the Thanksgiving celebration at hand, WCCS ad-
ministrator Jason Haddock helped the teachers prepare
"feasts" for their individual classes.
"With our days so full of things to do, it is hard to stop
and reflect on how far America has come since the first
Thanksgiving," he said recently. "Many sacrifices were
made in order for us to have this land of plenty."
Tables were set with a traditional feast, and students
gathered around, forming family units in each class-
room.
"Each one took time to stop and consider what they
have to be thankful for, realize how important it is to set
our differences aside, and to work together," Haddock
explained. "What better example do we have than that
of Gov. Bradford who invited Chief Massasoit and his
warriors to join the Pilgrims in their first feast of Thanks-
giving.


I am sorry for selling drugs in

in -an automobile accident
on :Orange Hill Highway
Dec. 10 just three days
before she was to be sworn
into the military.
".-'She suffered multiple
injuries, the worst of which

.parents said. "The doctors
Told us that she will never
.walk again. We still be-
lieve in miracles."
Friends can help with
Jamie's rehabilitation by

S"Some have asked where
to. send flowers," a family
spokesman said. "As dif-
ficult as it is for the fam-
ily .t ask, due to the need
of financial assistance, in
lieu of flowers a donation


to Jamie would be deeply
appreciated since she will
need months of expensive
health care and therapy,
and she has no insurance."

Step Up Florida
Since much of the popu-
lation is overweight, or
obese, members of Step-
Up Florida plans to focus
attention, on the problem
during 2006.
"Excess weight and
lack of physical activity
are known risk factors for
many diseases, including
diabetes, heart disease,
stroke, hypertension, os-
teoarthritis, sleep apnea.
and some forms of cancer,"
explains Heather Shelby,
RN and nursing program
specialist for the Chronic
Disease Program for Hol-
mes and Washington coun-
ties.
The third annual "Step
Up, Florida" will focus at-
tention on obesity. "Holm-
es County had the highest
rate of coronary heart dis-
ease in the state in 2002,"
Shelby added.
Step-Up, Florida is a
non-competitive physi-
cal activity designed to
promote regular exercise
within the communi-
ties across the state. The
program's goals are to
motivate people of all ages
to increase physical activ-
ity and engage in healthier
and more physically ac-
tive lifestyles, as well as
showcase various physical
opportunities available
to citizens and visitors
throughout Florida.
The 2006 program will
be a point-to-point relay
and will take place in. all 67
counties in Florida. Four
routes will begin on sepa-
rate days throughout the
state with the first starting
on February 1. "The Pan-
handle portion of the event
begins in Escambia County
on and will come through
Holmes County on Febru-
ary 6," Shelby said.
Different physical ac-
tivities, such as walking,
jogging and biking will be
undertaken to complete the
journey through Bonifay,
the Holmes County seat.
Holmes County schools
will be involved through-
out the day with the help., of
physical education teach-
ers and other support staff.
"We will hand off the
Step-Up flag to Washing-
ton County to continue
the relay throughout the
state," the Holmes County
nursing specialist said. For
information, call Heather.
Shelby, 638-8500, ext 162,
or Deborah Maqueira, 638-
8500, ext. 114.
