Two killed in fatal accidents: One still not ID'd


Florida Highway Patrol re-
ported a fatal accident Feb 17,
on Bell Community Road, west
of IIwy. 79.
James Michael Grizzard, 36,
of Santa Rosa Beach was driv-
ing a 2002 Kawasaki motorcycle
north on Hwy. 79 at a high rate
of speed when a Washington
County deputy attempted to


initiate a traffic stop. Grizzard
turned west onto James Potter
Road, attempting to flee, then
turned south onto Bell Commu-
nity Road continuing to evade
capture.
He drove onto the left shoul-
der of the road and lost control
of the motorcycle, striking a tele-
phone pole with the left front of


the bike and continued south un-
til he hit a tree stump, throwing
him from the motorcycle where
he struck a tree.
Grizzard was transported to
Bay Medical Center in Panama
City by the Washington County
EMS.
*Florida Highway Patrol re-
ported a fatal accident Feb. 19


on River Road, eight miles south
of Caryville.
An unknown male (John Doe)
was driving a 1997 Ford Explor-
er south on River Road at a high
rate of speed. He lost control
of the vehicle as he was nego-
tiating a curve, rotating counter
clockwise, sliding on the grassy
shoulder.


The vehicle collided with sev-
eral trees, overturned and came
to rest right side up. The driver,
who was not wearing a seat belt
was ejected. The driver had no
identification and will be listed
as unknown until identification
can be made. The vehicle was
reported stolen out of Quincy by
the registered owner.

Edition honors
business and service
growth in area
JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
Welcome to Horizons 2006,
our annual showcase of area
business and services by the
Washington County News and the
Holmes County Times-Advertiser.
The edition highlights growth
and improvement in Washington
and Holmes counties in 2005.
It particularly showcases new
business and industry in our
area.
There are articles and photos
of a number of businesses which
made substantial improvements
in 2005. A case in point is
Northwest Florida Community
Hospital (NFCH), which added a
state-of-the-art emergency' room.
The ribbon cutting :as iheldcIin
May for the $1.4 million 4,000-
square-foot facility.
There are nine ER bays
(which doubles the number that
can be treated from the old ER),
which can be expanded to 11 if
necessary. Double headwalls
make it possible to bring in extra
gurneys. The ER bays include
two trauma bays for acute
cases. There is also an isolation
room for patients with possible
contagious diseases, as well as a
decontamination room for nurses
and doctors.

mately doubles our former num-
ber of exam rooms and provides

and facilities to treat critically ill
and injured patients."
As one of only a few rural hos-
pitals in Florida, the new emer-
gency department at NFCH will
continue to be staffed with Ad-
vanced Trauma Life Support and
Advanced Cardiac Life Support
trained physicians, along with
many amenities that previously
were not available in our current
facility.
The new facility will provide
the community with two new
trauma rooms, a chest pain cen-
ter, double the number of exam
rooms and a decontamination fa-
cility for use in the event of a bio-


hazardous or chemical disaster.
In addition, 'the new facil-
ity houses the recently installed
state of the art cardiac monitor-
ing system, which is the most
technologically advanced patient
monitoring system on the market.
Moreover, to improve logistics
for helicopter transport,: the he-
licopter landing area that previ-
ously was located in the front
of the hospital has been moved
adjacent to the new emergency
department entrance.
The SOTA patient monitoring
system is used. "It's the best on
the market," Patrick Schlenker,
chief executive officer, said.
"We are the only hospital in the


Panhandle with it."
All of the patient's d

said. The system allows
monitoring patients on

Two injured in rollover
Chipley Volunteer Fire Department, Washington County EMS, Washington
County Sheriff's Office and Florida Highway Patrol were on the scene Monday
evening at the 122 mile marker on Interstate 10 when an SUV driven by Keesha

Perry's Prattle


By Perry Wells


Elder Carlton W. Todd, Elder Lasserre Bradley Jr. and Elder Cecil Darity are
shown at the 50th anniversary of Carlton Todd's pastorship at Bethel Primitive
Baptist Church.


Jeannie Betts. could
well, be numbereAd mnong
the most ardent readers of
'Perry's Prattle." She has
told me this many times
when I have seen her at the
Washington County Cham-
ber of Commerce office
where she serves actively
as a chamber ambassador.
A few\ weeks ago. Jean-
nie in her kind and soft
spoken voice, told me she
would like to see an article
i.on the topic of "Our Chris-
tian Heritage." My reply
was that the subject might
be too serious for "prattle."
She readily agreed, but
said she would send me
something to read, which I
assumed wouldd be related
to the topic mentioned.
I once heard a Primitive
Baptist Church preacher
say that he always
preached with a handicap.
iHe further explained that
;his handicap was having
to preach what was on his
'mind!
This has been my expe-
rience with the "prattle." I
must write what is on my
mind.


The .next rime I saw
. Jeapnie. I tol -her that I
had not dismissed her idea
completely, at which time
she said that she would
still send me the writing
she had referred to.
To date. I have not
received her material.
Maybe that is good, for
now I think I will try to
write a few thoughts on my
own "Christian Heritage."
rather than try to apply
the topic in a more general
way. Maybe my approach
should be more appropri-
ately titled "My Spiritual
Hertage" or "My Church.
Heritage."
This is not to promote
my theology or beliefs, but
simply state what I was
subjected to in the spiritual
realm of life.
Chuich, in my upbring-
ing, was Bethel Primitive
Baptist Church. It is also
called the Old School
Baptist and its detractors
have labeled us Hard Shell
Baptist.
The practices of the
church differ from most
others in that we do not


have Sunday school mu-
.sical instruments, choirs.
seminaries, or any of the
other host of auxiliaries
which exist among other
groups.
The general teaching of
the church is based on Ro-
mans, Chapter 8, verses 14
through 31; and Ephesians.
Chapter 1, verses 4 and 5.
and Chapter 2. verses 8
and 9. the doctrine of Pre-
destination and Election.
Truth, honesty, sobriety,
caring for the poor, visit-
ing the sick, regular church
attendance and supporting
the ministry are some of
the tenets taught as prac-
tical godliness, obviously
based on Lake. Chapter 6.
verse 29 and others.
The Annual Meeting
is an important one at
Bethel and at other Pimni-
tive Baptist Churches. It is
also known as Communion
when the elements of the
Lord's Supper are adminis-
tered with actual wine used
along with unleavened
bread. The service con-
cludes with feet washing!
Disciplinary action.


including exclusion from
the church, was a com-
mon practice of the early
church. Drunkenness was
one of the most flagrant
violations of church rules.
I remember only two
pastors serving Bethel
Church during my up-
bringing. Elder R.D. Dod-
gen was the first. followed
by Elder Carlton W. Todd,
who remained at Bethel
for fifty-seven years and
died while still serving as
pastor. -.
Our pastor lived in the:
community. We saw him
often as he would work on
the farm with us. He drove
a school bus, thus being
visible in the community.
For a time, he worked as
a barber. He and his fam-
ily visited in our home.
ate at our table and was
available at anyone's call
for spiritual assistance,
visiting and praying for the
sick. as well as performing
weddings and conducting
funerals.
Baptisms were conduct-
ed in streams or borrowed
pools. I recall my dad be-
ing baptized in Gum Creek.
My mother was baptized in
an outdoor pool at St. John
Freewill Church when she
first joined that church
and was again baptized
there when she united with
Bethel Primitive Baptist
Church.
My brother. Jim, and
I were baptized at the
long established and well
known swimming area of
Holmes Creek at Vernon.
MNany other Bethel Prini-


tive Church baptisms were
conducted there.
Deacons in the Primitive
Baptist Church are impor-
tant to the function of the
local body. The method
of selecting deacons, and
their qualifications, are
spelled out in Acts. Chapter
6, verses 1 through 6 and
in First Timothy, Chapter
3, verses 8 through 13. My
great-uncle. John Wells,
and Daniel Lee Pipkin
were among the deacons at
Bethel in my early-years. I
had the greatest respect for
their wisdom, judgment
and opinions when it came
to spiritual matters. Maybe
somewhat unaware, I tried
to pattern my life after
those two deacons.
The qualifications of
the Bishop (called Elders
among our ministers) are
outlined explicitly in First
Timothy. Chapter 3, verses
1 through 7.
All Bible references
here are from the 1611
King James Version. In
my formative years, I did
not know any other ver-
sion existed. Today, I still
consider The King James
as THE BIBLE! It rings a
familiar harmonious chord
in my heart.
Our preacher also
served other churches
in nearby Alabama and
Georgia towns thus we, as
a family, had opportunity
to visit those congrega-
tions occasionally and we
enjoyed visitation from the
members of those churches
from time to time, espe-
cially when three-day as-


sociational meetings were
hosted at Bethel Church
This gave us an opportu.
nity to get to know others
and learn new things and
ideas that we would not
have known otherwise.
In my involvement with
The Washington County
Heritage Book preparation
which will include stories
and histories on a number
of churches. I have noticed
that earlier ministers, espe.
cially in Baptist Churches
held long tenures of service
and lived in the communmi
ties in which they served.
This would include
Reverend F.C. Hawk
who participated in the
constituting of Blue Lake
Baptist Church; Reverend
S.D. McCormick of Hol
mes Creek Baptist Church
Reverend J. E. Mitchell of
Unity Baptist Church. Rev.
erend W.H. Mcintosh, who
served various churches
in the area, and Reverend
Tippins, the first pastor of
Ebenezer Baptist Church
Others will be listed in the
several stories, including
Bethel Primitive Baptist
Church. Elder Carlton W
Todd's life story also will
be included.
This effort today may
be far from the thoughts
and ideas Jeannie Betts
had in mind. But it is my
reflections on the subject
and what I feel to be my
Christian Heritage.
Who knows, maybe I'll
be impressed to write more
once I read what Jeannie
has to share with me.
See you-all next week.

Lady Tigers fall to top-ranked

FSU High in regional finals


Chipley's Lady Tigers
wrapped up their bas-
ketball season Saturday
night at Bob Albertson
Gym in Tallahassee,
losing the Region 1-3A
championship to top-
ranked Class 3A Florida
High, 34 to 31.
The Lady 'Noles start-
ed out on the warpath,
outscoring the Lady Ti-
gers by nine points in the


first quarter, a lead the
Tigers were never able to
overcome.
Chipley picked up
steam in the second
and outscored Florida
High by one point, and
again in the third by five
points.
The Lady Tigers
suffered a significant
setback in the fourth
when senior guard Emi


J.T.Hogans fights for the loose ball.


McCullough (game high
scorer) was benched.
The 'Noles regained'
momentum,. outscoring
the Tigers by two points
and giving them the
championship by three.
Scoring for Chipley
were: Emi McCullough
with 17, Shanida Thomas
had seven, J. T. Hogans
and Teanna Hill finished
with three each, and
Kassi Shackleford added
one point.
Scoring for Florida

sia Raffington with 10,
Markeshia Grant with
seven, Brittany Christie
with five, Jayme Warner
had four, GiGi Thomas
with two, Nicole Smith
with two, Gerica Raffing-
ton with two, and Aneka,
Tucker added two in the
win.
The Chipley Lady Ti-
gers defeated the Ribault
Lady Trojans, 61-57, in
the regional semifinals
in Chipley Tuesday night
to advance to the region
finals.


Emi McCullough drives to the hoop for two of her game-high 17 points.


The Lady Tigers got
first possession, but
turned the ball over and
Ribault sank a three-point
shot to take the lead.
The first half the Tigers
'were playing catch-up
basketball. They cut
the Trojans' lead to two
with about eight seconds
to go in the first, but the
Trojans hit a three at the
buzzer to put the Tigers
down five.
The score at the half
was Chipley 20, Ribault
25.


The third quarter didn't
look good for the Tigers
either, with the Trojans
all over the boards, get-
ting three or more shots
to make a basket.
Chipley picked up the
pace after a timeout and
cut the lead to three on
smart ball movement
and shots from behind
the arc.
The Lady Tigers hit a
three at the buzzer to tie
the game.
The Lady Tigers-
played great in the fourth


quarter -- shooting well,
rebounding and taking
over on the court.
The Trojans, although
they never gave up, were
in panic mode, pressing
up and down the court
and fouling.
Scoring for Chipley
were Emi McCullough
with 28, J. T. Hogans
with 11, Erica Sewell
with 8, Tiffany Owens
added 5, Teanna Hill
added 5. Shanida Thom-
as and Kassi Shackleford
finished with two each.

Morris named NWTF-FWC

officer of the year


BONIFAY, Fla.
- Continuing their com-
mitment to law enforce-
ment, the National Wild
Turkey Federation hon-
ored Law Enforcement
Officer Larry Morris,
of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission, for his
efforts in conserving
America's wildlife.
Morris will be recog-
nized as the NWTF's
Florida Wildlife Law
Enforcement Officer of
the Year during its 30th
annual Convention and
Sport Show in Nash-
ville, Tenn., Feb. 23 to
Feb. 26.
The NWTF initiated
their awards program
to acknowledge top of-
ficers such as Morris
across North America.
Morris and other state
winners are eligible for
the NWTF's National
Law Enforcement Of-
ficer of the Year award,
which will be announced
during the Awards Ban-
quet at the Convention
and Sport Show.
"Trap and transfer is
one part of the success
story of the wild tur-
key," said Rob Keck,
NWTF CEO.
"Protection from
poaching is the other.
Wildlife officers played
a huge role in the come-
back of the wild turkey.
This is our way of
sa ing thanks to those
officers."
Morris has received
numerous commenda-
tions in addition to


the NWTF's Florida
Wildlife Law Enforce-
ment Officer of the Year
award.
Each year before tur-
key hunting season, he
works diligently to find
illegally baited sites so
when the season starts,
he can apprehend the
violators.
In 1995, Morris ini-
tiated what is known
as the Holmes County
Wild Turkey Restora-
tion Program.
He and a group of
landowners noticed a
lack of wild turkeys in
Holmes County, even
though the area had
prime turkey habitat.
With the support of
local hunters, the tur-
key hunting season was
closed in Holmes Coun-
ty and a trap and transfer
effort ensued.
A total of 121 wild
turkeys were released
throughout the county.
In 2006, there will be
a limited turkey hunt-
ing season in Holmes
County.
"Thanks, in great
measure, to the efforts
of Officer Morris, the
successful restoration
program has continued
to foster an unprece-
dented spirit of coopera-
tion between landown-
ers, the community and
the Commission that
will pay dividends to
all for years to come,"
said Julie Jones, director
of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission, Division


o.f Law Enforcement.
For more information
about the NWTF's law
enforcement award win-
ners, or the NWTF's ef-
forts to support wildlife
law enforcement, call
(800) THE-NWTF, or go
online at www.nwtf.org.
About the NWTF: In
1973, when the National
Wild Turkey Federation
was founded, there were
an estimated 1.3 million
wild turkeys and 1.5
million turkey hunters.
Thanks to the work
of wildlife agencies
and the NWTF's many
volunteers and partners,
today there are nearly 7
million wild turkeys and
nearly 3 million turkey
hunters.
Since 1985, the
NWTF and its coop-
erators have spent more
than $224 million up-
holding hunting tradi-
tions and conserving
more than 9.6 million
acres of wildlife habitat.
The NWTF is a non-
profit organization with
more than 500,000
members in 50 states
and 16 foreign coun-
tries.
It supports scientific
wildlife management
on public, private and
corporate lands as well
as wild turkey hunting
as a traditional North
American sport.

Turkey Federation, call

DONNA DYKES
Staff Writer
The sound of bagpipes
filled the air Saturday as
members of the Panama
City Pipes and Drums
marched up and down the
roped off streets around
the host church, Chipley
Presbyterian.
In addition to enjoying
the native dress and music,
visitors had a chance to try
some of the Scottish foods
they sometimes read about
in novels scones, Scotch
eggs and an array of cook-
ies. Dundee cakes made by
Winona Vanlandingham of
Clan Douglas were a treat
in their red plaid holders.
Cookies, cakes, coffee
and tea were served in-
doors where members of
several dance teams dis-
played their art.
Visitors were told tradi-
tional Scottish dances usu-
ally express an emotion.
For instance, the Seann
Triubhas (Shawn Trues)
means old trousers and
expressed the Scots' rebel-
lion years ago at the ban on
wearing kilts.
SMany of the steps mimic
the Scots' effort to kick off
the trews.
The oldest and best
known traditional dance
is the Highland Fling, be-
lieved to be a dance cel-
ebrating victory in battle.
Roger Vanlandingham
provided Scottish music
and the Blue Lake Singers
were featured.
In a lot behind the
church, heavily-built men
competed in Highland
games throwing the stone
i6f strength, and the ham-


mer, and tossing a caber
- while wearing skirts and
knee socks.
In an adjacent yard,
youngsters tried their hand
at similar games with
smaller equipment while
Linda Norton explained
"how to" and presented
neck medals for their ef-
fort. Instead of a heavy log
(caber) the youngsters tried
their hand at tossing a long
piece of PVC pipe.
The adult games includ-
ed the sheaf toss where
contestants used a pitch-
fork to pick up a small
straw-filled object (shaped
like a pillow).
After spinning around
several times, the contes-
tant flung it above his head,
up and over something that
looked like a football field
goal. After everyone had
a turn, the goal rope was
raised for a another round.
The older athletes re-
ceived awards during a late
afternoon program.
Karl Sinclair Franz, MD,
and wife, Angela, were
honored guests at the third
annual Scottish Festival
held Feb. 18.
A 1963 graduate of
Chipley High School,
Franz continued his edu-
cation at Chipola Junior
College and the University
of Miami. He received his
medical degree from the
University of Florida in
1972 and completed ,his
internship and residency
in general surgery at Car-
olina's Medical Center in
Charlotte in 1977.
Franz credits his "suc-
cess in life to his expe-
rience growing up in

Chipley." He and his wife
now live in Tallahassee
where he spends his time
as a medical consultant
and is involved in coastal
development and other real
estate ventures.
He is an active member
of the St. Andrew Society
and Chirurgeon in the Sov-
ereign Military Order of
the Temple of Jerusalem.
The festival continued
on Sunday with a church
service known as "Kirking
0' the Tartans."
Kirk is a Scottish word
for church and the, tartan
is the traditional garb of a


Highland Scot. Kirking the
tartan is a blessing of the
tartan by the clergy.
The Rev. David Darrow
is pastor of First Presby-
terian Church in Chipley,
He gave the welcome and
introduced guests Satur-
:day during .the opening
ceremony. Darrow also
presented a certificate
to Brittany Hawes, who
won second place in the
church's, Scottish essay
contest.
The. first-place winner,
Marissa Coleman, and
honorable mention, Paige
Holmes, were not present.

gent, the resident quickly
leaned that he had been

Nadine Hall is the PAEC Employee of the Month for
February. She receives her award from PAEC Execu-
tive Director Paula Waller.

Hall is named PAEC

Employee of the Month


For Bonifay's Nadine
Hall, the second time is the
charm.
Hall, who is now on her
second round of employ-
ment at the Panhandle Area
Educational Consortium,
was selected employee of
the month for February.
Hall retired from PAEC
after almost 30 years, but
didn't like retirement be-
cause it meant "half the
pay and twice the husband."
She came back to work as
an academic advocate for
PAEC's Migrant Program.
Before retirement, she
spent almost 15 years in
the Migrant Program' as a
consultant, and another 15
with PAEC's FDLRS pro-
gram. FDLRS, pronounced
'fiddlers," is the common
acronym for, the Florida
Diagnostic Learninig Re-
sources System.
Many of PAEC's
consultants and district
educators rely on Hall to
mentor them. She holds
a master's degree in emo-
tional disturbances/specific
learning disabilities, as
well as certifications in el-
ementary education, early
childhood education, spe-
cific learning disabilities,
mental retardation, gifted
education and administra-
tion and supervision.
Hall continues learning,
which is her hallmark. She
is presently pursuing an
endorsement in reading,
which is not required for
her position but she be-
lieves will help her better
serve migrant students.
Her nominator for the
honor, said, "Nadine is
the poster child for what
TEAM stands for-To-
gether Everyone Achieves
More. She is not bound
by her job description. If
she sees where she could
be of service, she jumps in
and helps others no matter
what the task."
Hall is an accomplished
artist, and several of her
floral paintings adorn hall-
ways in PAEC's Chipley
office. She is generous
with her talent, donating
paintings and crafts for
raffles in support of the
Migrant program as well
as the American Cancer
Society.
She also serves as cur-
riculum coordinator for the
Migrant Program's sum-
mer school in Quincy. She
supervises up to 25 teach-
ers and ensures instruc-
tion meets the rigorous
standards of the federal No
Child Left Behind initia-
tive.
"I commend Nadine on
TO ADVERTISE

OR 547-9414


receiving this honor. She
is very-deserving of it,"
said Paula Lovett Waller,
PAEC executive direc-
tor. "Nadine is extremely
knowledgeable about
teaching, learning and the
educational system. She
is an invaluable resource
and we're proud to have
her back."

Earned Income
Tax Credit
Florida's Agency for
Workforce Innovation and
Workforce Florida, Inc.
in partnership with the
HR Florida State Council,
urges Florida employers to
help their employees take
advantage of the Earned
Income Tax Credit (EITC).
The EITC is a refund-
able federal income tax
credit for low to moderate
income working individu-
als and families. Taxpayers
who qualify.' and claim the
credit can pay 'less federal
tax, pay no tax or even get a
tax refund of up to $4,400.
Based on information from
the IRS it is projected that
as much as $635 million
goes unclaimed by the
estimated 350,000+ work-
ing families/individuals in
Florida who are not taking
advantage of the EITC.
To learn more about
the EITC and how you
can help your employees
take advantage of it go to

Washington County


In an effort to help a
future generation learn
about the benefits of
exercise, employees of
the Washington County
Health Department spent
a very windy day leading
area youngsters through a
variety of games designed
to burn calories and
exercise muscles.
Children from all area
day care centers were


invited to participate, and
close to 100 boys and,
girls, were there to enjoy
fun activities suited to
their ages at the Step-Up
Florida program held Feb.
7 in the front parking lot
at Northwest Florida
Community Hospital in
Chipley.
Health department
employees manned the
six stations where kids


were introduced to hula
hoops, croquet, play with
large soft balls, jump
rope, hockey (kicking
a ball into a backdrop),
and basketball (throwing
a packet through a hoop).
The kids were given a
colorful little sticker for
each score they made.
The stickers were stuck to
the black ribbon pinned to
the their T-shirts.

with a walk from Piggly
Wiggly to the recreation


park, where prizes were
awarded.
Activities included ka-
rate and dance exercises at
Bonifay Elementary. a run
around the track at Ponce
deLeon and a variety of
activities throughout the
school district.
Different physical ac-
tivities, such as walking,
jogging and biking was un-


dertaken. Holmes County
schools were involved
throughout the day with
the help of physical edu-
cation teachers and other
support staff.
The third annual "Step
Up, Florida" focused at-
tention on obesity. Holmes
County had the highest
rate of coronary heart dis-
ease in the state in 2002.

Taxpayers who owe the IRS


must read this
. If you owe $10,000 or more in past
Sdue taxes, there are four solutions:
(1) You can pay it in full. This is, of
course, your best option.
(2) You can pay it off with a credit
card. This is not a good solution-
unless you can pay off your credit
card in full quickly. Besides, the IRS
charges you a hefty "convenience"
fee.
(3) You can borrow from a friend or
relative. You already know this is not
a good idea.
(4) You can use the equity in your
home to pay off your debts.
This is your best option and we
have the best program.
ONE, we guarantee the lowest rate
in writing. We will beat all offers-or
we'll pay you $250.
TWO, we will not increase your
'rate even if you have a low credit
score.
Honey Mae Home Loans Is licensed by th


before April 15
,We don't let our computer tell 'us
what to do. We can give you a loan
when others say no even if you have
a "low" credit score.
THREE, there's an excellent chance
your loan will be approved. We
approve 6 out of 7 applicants.
And some of these people have
credit scores below 540. You have an
86% chance of getting a loan-no
matter your situation.
Why must you call before April
15? Because you don't know what
the IRS may do after April 15. They
may garnish your wages, seize your
car or even foreclose your house.
There's no reason to owe the IRS if
you have equity in your home. We
can tell you-liree ol' charge-and

Chamber: Holmes County moving forward in 2006
..... -_ ___ __ ....... ,s ----- ,,fla--4 e s &- J ,J 4 L h a',.


JYL EICKMANN
For Chipley Newspapers
All you have to do is
look around and you will
see the evident buzz of
economic activity happen-
ing in our county. The days
of Holmes County being
overlooked for develop-
ment opportunities is gone
and I hope within the next
few years we can come off
the list as being on of the
top five poorest counties in
the State of Florida.
The Development Com-
mission Board has made
major strides in laying the
groundwork to accommo-
date growth. Spearheading
the effort in submitting the
application to the Gover-
nor's Office for Holmes
County's re-designation
as an Enterprise Zone was
critical.
The Enterprise Zone
will prove 'to be extremely
beneficial over the next ten
years in providing incen-
tives to businesses look-
ing to locate in Holmes
County. It also provides
jobs tax credits to existing
businesses that expand
their full-time staff and
offers sales tax refund on
building materials to resi-
dents and businesses.
The Development Com-
mission recently hosted
an economic development
workshop where commu-
nity leaders were invited
to help developed a long-
range economic strategic
plan for Holmes County.
The Plan is in the process
of bding fomialized.
The Workshop was
hosted by Touchstone En-
ergy and Gary Clark, West
Florida Electric Coopera-
tive, was the facilitator for
the workshop.
Another milestone was
working with the Gover-
"tib's Office in resitaigg
Holmes County's status as
a rural area of critical eco-
nomic concern. Governor
Bush has made it a top pri-
ority in his economic agen-
da, to assist the distressed
communities in their eco-
nomic development efforts.
This designation will allow
for expedited permitting
and will be helpful in se-
curing infrastructure and
road funds needed for de-
velopment. ::
The Haas Center com-
pleted the feasibility
study of a Wildlife Park
in Holmes County.: The
study revealed that it was
feasible to' expect a park
of this nature to sustain
itself, based on our loca-
tion to Interstate 10 and
all the economic activity
going on around us in Bay,
Washington and Walton


of. Cities, and Enterprise I


Counties. Project is mov-
ing forward at this time.
The Bay County In-
ternational Airport is the
impetus that is driving the
"development frenzy" that
we are seeing. Land prices
are soaring and our inter-
change is receiving a lot
of interests from various
development groups.
Jyl Eicknann is Ex-
ecutive Director of the
Holmes County Develop-
ment Commission and the
Holmes County Chamber
of Commerce.
Overview of 2005
Development Com-
mission Chairman Bob
Dinkins and Development
Commission and Cham-
ber Executive Director
Jyl Eickmann provided a
power-point presentation
of activities for 2005 (the
presentation was done by
Washington-Holmes Tech-
nical Center) at the annual
Development Commission

January. Those activities,
which the two organiza-
tions were involved in as
active participants or as
supporters, included:

site.

the proposed "Project Jim"
by the Haas Center at the
University of West Florida.
Development of this proj-
ect is ongoing.
*The campaign by Doc-
tors Memorial Hospital to

or sell bonds to finance a
new hospital.
*A strategic plan for

its grand reopening in September 2005. The restaurant had been closed for two

Doctors Memorial Hospital ready to move on new facility


"Now we're ready to go,"
Holmes County Hospital
Corporation Chairperson
Brenda Blitch said in Octo-
ber 2005 as employees and
staff at Doctors Memorial
Hospital celebrated around
her. "We're in the process
of deciding financing and
finding an architect."
The reason for the
celebration was the over-
whelming passage of a
referendum that will allow
the hospital board to bor-
.row over the former limit
of $175,000. The referen-
dum passed 3,831 to 704,
with five undervotes. On
October 18, 2005, Holmes
County gave the manage-
ment of DMH the ability to
finance a new facility.
"We are pleased that the
voters understood what the
referendum was about,"
Blitch said. "They are
looking for progress and
know what a new medical
center would mean to Hol-
mes County.
"I expected it to pass but
not to pass overwhelm-
ingly. We put forth a very

that included hospital em-
ployees "doing a great job'
of spreading the word.
At issue was a referen-
dum to allow the Holmes
County Hospital Corpo-
ration to issue bonds or
obtain loans to build a new
hospital at the southeast
comer of Interstate 10 and
Hwy. 79. The corporation
owns 10.5 acres of land at
that location.
Florida law requires a
referendum before a bill
can be enacted repealing
limits on issuing bonds.
The corporation is cur-
rently limited to obtaining
,$175,000 in financing.


DMH Administrator
Robert Winkler laid
out the case for passage
of the referendum at
this meeting of the Hol-
mes County Chamber of
Commerce. Winkler was
a tireless advocate of the
move, which will allow
the Holmes County Hos-
pital Corporation to issue
bonds or obtain loans to
build a new hospital at
the southeast corner of
Interstate 10 and Hwy.
79.

State Sen. Durell
Peaden and State Rep. Don
Brown held a public hear-
ing on the issue of the new
hospital, and introduced
legislation to remove the,
$175,000 ceiling.
The bill passed the Flori-
da legislature unanimously
and went into effect once
the referendum passed.
That allows the corpora-
tion to seek the necessary
financing to build the new
hospital.

undergone modest expan-

Winkler said in an ear-
lier interview tiai the hos-

In recent years the hos-

number of specialized
services, including acute

specialized, in-house ser-
vices previously unavail-
able at medical facilities in
Holmes County.
Winkler said the prob-
lem is the present hospital
is too old and too cramped
to allow enough space for
new services.
"There is no room for ex-
pansion, or to be able to re-
model the existing facility
for proper use of the new
equipment." Winkler said.
Renovation of the present
hospital is estimated to be
more expensive than build-
ing a new facility. "We
need a complete replace-
ment facility." Large-scale
renovation would also
disrupt current services,
Winkler said.
Building a new hospital
would also allow future
expansion, including offer-
ing:additional health care
services by recruiting new
specialists and physicians.
Expansion would also
add jobs to the county,
Winkler said. Currently 60
percent of DMH employ-
ees live in Holmes County.
Building a new hospital
with additional services
would also mean residents
would not have to travel to
Panama City, Tallahassee,
or Dothan for specialized
services.
"This should result in
saving money spent for
gas. food and other items."
Winkler said.

Pet Butler offers a

one-of-a kind service


Rose's Vintage Cottage, the old Jenkins homestead located at 2074 N. Highway 79 is a charming gift shop
where unique items like one of a kind stained glass, vintage jewelry, sun catchers, wind chimes, antiques, and
an interesting array of decorative items can be found.


Rose's Vintage Cottage a unique kind


Joe and Rose Blanchette
purchased the old Jenkins
homestead' at 2074 N.
Highway 79 in 2001. The
couple decided the home
built in the. late 1920's was
not large enough for them
to live in, but they wanted
to preserve the history of
the homestead. They de-
cided to convert the home
to a gift and art store.
Velma Jenkiris Stubbs
grew up in the home and
said, "Our family is so
glad that they decided to
fix up the home. It has re-
ally meant a lot to the fam-
ily to be able to visit the
home and know the public
has an opportunity to visit
it as well." Stubbs said she


is really pleased with the
work the Blanchettes have
done to the home that she
and seven brothers and sis-
ters grew up in.
After many years in the
salon industry, Rose de-
cided to open a business
where she could dabble
with her passion for inte-
rior design.
She enjoys playing with
color and theme. Rose has
given each room a theme
and painted them a dif-
ferent color to create a
.charming gift shop where
unique items like frames
constructed with wood
from old plantation homes,
stained glass, handmade
quilts, vintage jewelry,


antiques, wooden outdoor
furniture, paintings of local
artists, and an interesting
array of decorative items
can be found.
Work of several local
artists can be found on
display at Rose's Vintage
Cottage. Bob Marsh of
Marianna creates jewelry
made of dichroic glass that
has a three-D effect. Marsh
also creates one-of-a-kind
stained glass lamps, win-
dows, and hanging sun
catchers. Pat Rollins of
Bonifay, a landscape art-
ist, has several paintings
on display. Harvie Belser,
a black-and-white photog-
rapher, has prints taken of
our area on Holmes Creek


of gift shop
and Wright's Creek. Henry
Butler, a craftsman of out-
door furniture, has pieces
displayed that are not only
beautiful but also very
comfortable.
Chris Moody of Mont-
gomery, Ala. has frames,
mirrors, candlesticks, and
coat racks made from
wood of old Southern
homes. Moody maintains
the original color of the
wood. Gary G. Greene of
Lancaster, Pa. is a land-
scape and seascape artist
who creates watercolor
paintings that are sooth-
ing and peaceful. His work
can be found in the pale
blue "beach room" of the
cottage.


Niki Tudge, who oper-
ates Bonifay Canine Col-
lege, has expanded her
business by opening one
of the first two Florida
franchises of Pet Butler,
the nation's leading pet
cleanup services.
Pet Butler, based in Dal-
las, provides professional
pet waste cleanup and
removal services for indi-
vidual homeowners and
their pets, as well as for
multi-family communities
and parks. The eight-year-
old company proudly bills
'itself as "Number 1 in the
'Number 2' business."
Pet Butler charges a
small per-visit fee to col-
lect dog and cat waste, car-
ry it away, and dispose of it
properly. Whether in yards
or in public spaces, accu-
mulated domestic animal
waste can ruin lawns and
present a significant source
of water pollution.
Tudge's Pet Butler op-
erations serves the Florida
coast from Panama City
to Fort Walton Beach and
adjacent areas, offering


weekly and twice-weekly
pickup services. She said
affiliation with the nation's
top pet waste service was
a natural addition to her
existing canine-focused
business.
Tudge has extensive
experience in high-quality
customer service environ-
ments with an emphasis
on "wowing" customers.
After working for more
than a decade for a British
hotel company in various
countries, she finally had
the chance to pursue her
dream of working with
dogs.
Along the way, she
earned diplomas in animal
psychology, dog obedi-
ence, veterinary assistance,
and pet grooming. She
operated a canine school
in Hawaii before she and
her husband decided to
move to Florida, where
she opened Bonifay Ca-
nine College.

C.A.S.E. Coalition hosts SoulJam 2006 April 1


The Countywide Anti
Substance-abuse Effort
(C.A.S.E.) Coalition an-
nounces the third annual
SoulJam concert to be held'
in Bonifay on Saturday
April 1. This year's event
features Rebecca St.
James, BarlowGirl and
Jadon Lavik in concert at
the Holmes County Fair-
grounds.
SoulJam 2006 is spon-
sored by the C.A.S.E.
Coalition in partnership
with the Holmes County
Ministerial Association
and Christian radio station
WJNF, 88.3, the ROCK
in Marianna. According
to organizers, these three
partners share a deep.de-
sire to bring to Holmes
County a Christ-centered
event geared toward youth.
Through the all day event,
the partnership enjoys
building relationships and
bringing people together
for a day of fun.
Like last year's success-
ful event, one low price
gains ticket holders access
to all events including a
Battle of the Bands, a game
area with blow up and oth-
er "Extreme" games, vol-
leyball, the main concert,
and more.
Each year SoulJam
hpsts a Battle of the Bands
where local bands,compete
for a chance to open for the
main concert event. This
year the battle will begin at
noon the day of the event.
SThe game area will once
again contain games for all
ages. Local churches are
encouraged to participate
by sponsoring a game.
This year's headliner
is Grammy Award winner
Rebecca St. James. The
Australian-born Rebecca
St.' Jriil.. has tuhroughout
the late 90's until pres-
ent been considered to be
a major defining female
voice in contemporary

The Countywide Anti-Substance-abuse Effort
(C.A.S.E.) Coalition announces the third annual
SoulJam concert to be held in Bonifay on Saturday
April 1. This year's event features Rebecca St. James
(right), BarlowGirl (above) and Jadon Lavik in con-
cert at the Holmes County Fairgrounds.


Magazine named Rebecca
to the list of "The 50 Most
Influential People in Con-
temporary Music."
Her book, "Wait For
Me," now in a ninth print-
ing reached the number
one spot on the presti-
gious CBA (Young Adult)
book chart in 2003, with
Rebecca's passionate, and
often controversial, chal-
lenge to young people to
"stand strong" with her on
issues of sexual purity. In
the midst of all the acclaim,
Rebecca St. James remains
true to her mission.
"I'm not called to be a
star," said the articulate
young Aussie in a major
media interview. She open-
ly admitted she considers
her worldwide acceptance
a ministry rather than a ca-
reer. "God has called me to
be a servant" said Rebecca.
Touring with St. James
this year is the sisters act
BarlowGirl. The' Barlow
sisters are out to rock their
generation with messages
of faith. hope and living
.. in God's perfect, image,
not NITV's. BarlowGirl is
an all girl band made up
of three sisters: Rebecca,
Alyssa and Lauren Barlow.
BarlowGirl is three young
women from the Midwest,
who are close to their fam-
ily, who stand firm in their
beliefs, and who are open
enough to say they aren't
perfect and share their
struggles transparently in
order to grow.

C.A.S.E. Coalition begins

fourth year of operation


The highly acclaimed
Countywide Anti Sub-
stance-abuse Efforts
(C.A.S.E.) Coalition is
entering its fourth year
of operations. Headquar-
tered in the old Nazarene
Church building located at
402 North Ave in Bonifay,
C.A.S.E. works hard to
reduce substance abuse in
Holmes County, especially
among south. ::::i ,
C.A.S.E. has received
numerous awards and priz-
es including being hon-
ored at Florida's Annual
Prevention Conference in
Orlando where it has been
the first place winner of the
Governor's Family Day
Pledge 'Drive two years
in a row. C.A.S.E. leaders
have been invited guests
and speakers at several key
events in Tallahassee and
other locations. -
SLast year C.A.S.E. Vice
President and Program
Director, Wendy Morgan,
was named to the state of
Florida's "Who's Who of
Prevention Leaders". The
C.A.S.E. booth at the Hol-
mes County Fair has con-
sistently earned first place
ribbons as did their float in
the Rodeo parade.
"Most importantly," said
Sheriff Dennis Lee, who
serves as C.A.S.E.'s Presi-
dent and Executive Direc-


tor, "C.A.S.E.'s efforts are
paying off. The results of
the most recent Florida
Youth Substance Abuse
Survey (FYSAS) tell us
that the combination of
awareness, educating our
community, and fighting
the drug war from a law
enforcement standpoint,
is making a huge differ-
ence."
Marijuana use among
Holmes County students
has declined seven per-
-centage points and meth-
amphetamine use among
students has declined six
percentage points based
on a comparison of data
from the two most recently
released surveys.
"The reports clearly
show that the strategies
we are using to better edu-
cate our youth about the
dangers of marijuana and
methamphetamines are
working. And for the first
time, the last published re-
port showed that marijuana
and methamphetamine use
were lower among Holmes
County students compared
to the state of Florida as a
whole," Lee added.
Future plans call for
C.A.S.E. to become more
involved in addressing
alcohol use by Holmes

God has done with it (their
debut album) and how He
has built a ministry out
of it," says Lauren. "He's
using three normal girls
from Elgin, IL, who have
nothing to offer apart
from Christ. We were all
ready to go do our own
thing, and He called us and
turned us around and said,
'I have something for you
to tell the world.'"
Contemporary Christian
Music's biggest break-
through band of 2004
came back in 2005 with
"Another Journal Entry,"
their second album which
is on fire with conviction
and commitment. The CD
includes a new version of
"Never Alone," the song,
that earned this sister trio
multiple Gospel Music
Association (GMA) Award
nominations, including
2004's,Best New Artist


and Best Rock Song.
Newcomer Jadon
Lavik's two big interests in
college were business and
baseball, but he never made
it to the major leagues, nor
did he become a com-
mercial realtor. Instead,
a meeting with worship
leader Rick Muchow not
only gave him some post-
graduation advice, but also
an offer for a music intern-
ship at Saddleback Church
in California.
The position allowed
Lavik to develop his sing-
ing and guitar skills, and
after two years, he was
courted by BEC Record-
ings to release his debut,
"Moving on Faith." Unlike
many other BEC artists,
Lavik is not an aggressive
or alternative rocker.


.-U







He's mostly an acous-
tic guy along the lines of
Jeremy Camp, Bebo Nor-
man, Howie Day or Ari
Hest. Lavik's trademark is
his provocative, faith-cen-
tered lyrics that point to
both praise ("Redeeming
King," "Saved by Grace")
and personal experiences
("Searching," "Let It Go").
'Additionally attractive are
"Following You," a lively
band-driven composition
about living a godly life,
and "Today," which cel-
ebrates the beauty of life
through subdued finger
picking.
In an effort to keep
ticket prices affordable,
funding for SoulJam
comes from the anti-drug
grants, awards, and other
fundraising efforts of the


Holmes County C.A.S.E.
Coalition. "Like last year
we are. blessed to have
grant funding to help pay
for this event." said Sheriff
Dennis Lee who serves as
C.A.S.E.'s President and
Executive Director.
Wendy Morgan wrote
the grant which was
awarded by Florida State
University's Prevention
Department in partnership
with the Florida Depart.
ment of Children and
Families. Morgan serves as
C.A.S.E.'s Vice President
and Program Director.
Sponsors would like
to encourage residents to
make this year's event a
life changing experience
for someone, by inviting
a friend, a/neighbor or a
family member to attend
and not only have a great
time, but also hear about
the most important rela-
tionship they can have... a
relationship with God.
Just as last year, one
ticket is good for every-
thing. Individual tickets
are $12 in Advance or $15
at the Gate. Group rates
(10 or more) are $10 in Ad-
vance or $12 at the Gate.
Tickets can be
purchased online at
www.souljamonline.com.
through itickets.com or
WJNF.org. Locally, tickets
are available at the First
Baptist Church of Bonifay
on Waukesha Street, at the
WJNF Studio at 2914 Jef
ferson Street in Marianna
and other locations.

WHTC expands to better serve the area


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 our society. Over
85 percent of the present
careers require some type
of technical training which
prepares employees with
industry specific skills.
This means that, technical-
ly trained employees are
ready to go to work with
the skills that business and
industry need the individu-
als 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
offers the same financial
aid programs that colleges
and universities offer.
Basic programs that col-
leges and universities offer
include VA, Pell Grant,
College Work Study, lo-
cal fee-based funds, and
WHTC Foundation Schol-
arships.
Information 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


WHTC students do more than gain practical experience at the tech center. Here, the heavy equipment class
helped out Holmes County by clearing the old Prosperity School site, future home of the D.D. Eldridge Memo-
rial Park complex.


start school. There are
also many possibilities for
assistance through the One-
Stop Career Center.
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 their high school
half-time for their required
courses.l
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 dually enrolled. Upon
graduation, students not
only have their high school
diploma, they also have
technical certificate and
marketable skills for the
job market.
Everyone needs career
skills to enter directly into


the work force or to en-
hance college training and
possibly be able to help
finance further education.
Continuing in the
tradition of growth and
improvement, WHTC has
many new educational
opportunities. The center
is excited to announce the
launch of a new build-
ing trades academy for
students interested in
engineering or construc-
tion management degrees.
Enrollment. for the pro-
gram will be limited to 15
students the first year and
30 the year after.
This rigorous academic
program is not for ev-
eryone, but will greatly
enhance the skills of some-
one whose career path is in
engineering or construc-
tion management.
High school students
from Washington and Hol-
mes County schools, and
Graceville or Cottondale
High School are eligible
to enroll. The students
will enter th6 academy in
their junior year. It is rec-


ommended that students
attend school during the
summer between their ju-
nior and senior year and
then concentrate on one
vocational program their
senior year. The program
will place students in a
vocational "wheel" which
will teach them the basics
of many different con-
struction programs.
These programs are
heating and air-condition-
ing, carpentry, electrical
wiring, welding, heavy
equipment operator, draft-
ing, and surveying and
mapping. Each student
will select four areas of
study and spend their last
year at the academy in
the program that interests
them the most.
A new course of study,
in surveying and mapping
has been developed and
will begin this fall. This ex-
citing course will not only
be a part of the building
trades academy but will


also be available to dually
enrolled high school stu-
dents and post secondary
students.
An Applied Technology
Diploma (ATD) can now
be earned at WHTC in the
area of customer service.
In addition to preparing
students for entry-level
employment in the cus-
tomer service occupations
a student receives 18 credit
hours to be transferred to a
community college if the
student enrolls within a
three-year period of time.
WHTC has expanded
its day and evening
Adult Education program.
Classes are now offered in
Bonifay, Chipley, and Ver-
non. 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 avail-
able 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 continued to grow
with both day and evening
classes. The day program
is a course in which a stu-
dent can train and work at
the same time. As a part
of the program, the firing
range for the center has
been enhanced and reno.
vated.
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 sec-
ondary education but less
than a four-year college
degree. Vocational-techni-
cal education helps meet
this need by providing post
secondary trained workers
assuring a steady supply
of skilled work-ready em-
ployees.
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
programs. The center is
proud to offer training to
the citizens of local com-
munities in 26 different
occupational areas, and
pledges to keep the train-
ing relevant to today's job
market.
For information, call
(850) 638-1180, visit the
web site at www.whtc.org
or come by the center
at 757 Hoyt Street in

Agriculture still alive and well ..* ^ ,

Holmes County is still a
rural county, and tradition-
al agriculture is still alive
and well. Farm Bureau
and the Florida Extension
Service celebrated Farm
City Week with the help of
Bonifay Kiwanis Club on
Wednesday, November 16,
2005 at Blitch's Restaurant
in Bonifay.
County Commissioner
Raymon Thomas of the
Holmes County Farm
Bureau noted that it is the
50th anniversary of Farm
City Week nationwide,
and Kiwanis International
originally started the event.
The event highlights the
second-largest industry in
Florida, which also pro-
vides a $1.3 trillion gross
domestic product to the
nation.: -
Thomas said that agri-
culture was a big reason
that Florida's economy
survived the wave of hur-
ricanes and 9-11. "After 9-
11 tourism went down, and
agriculture helped Florida
survive," Thomas said. In
2003, growers in Holmes
,County produced 1,500
acres of corn, 4,200 acres
of peanuts, 2,000 acres
of soybeans, 3,100 acres
of cotton and 8,000 head
of beef cattle. There were
about 1,000 milk cows in
the county. A wide variety
of other crops are also
grown in the county.
"We're one of the larg-
est agriculture counties
in Northwest Florida,"
Thomas said.
There were 112 entries
in the third-grade-coloring
contest, and winners were
Jenna Singletary (Poplar
Springs), Dalton Blount
(Ponce De Leon), Chel-
sea Morris (Bethlehem)
and Cierra Pou (Bonifay).

Residential development undergoes tremendous change


JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
Residential develop-
ment has changed tremen-
dously in Holmes County.
The real estate market has
overall enjoyed intense
activity over the past year,
and in the process has
changed the face of land
use in the county.
Where once Holmes
County real estate was af-
fordable and easy to find,
realators now scramble
to find properties to list.
Real estate "for sale" signs
cover the county.
Property prices have
increased drastically, with
one 10-acre tract just off
the interstate in Bonifay
going for $1.1 million last
year. Other properties have
sold for very high prices
compared to the past.
There has also been con-
troversy over some large
developments as well as te
recognition of the need to
revise the county compre-
hensive plan.
Canopy Crossing proj-
ect is a case in point It is
underway, following ac-
tion by.the Holmes County
Board of County Com-
missioners. The Board ap-
proved the recommenda-
tion of the Planning Com-
mission at a special called
meeting Friday, September
23, 2005.
The Board's action fol-
lowed a public hearing by
the Planning Commission
earlier, and the subsequent
approval of a recommenda-
tion to approve the project.
A large number of people
were on hand at the public
hearing to voice their opin-
ions about the project.

approved a variance to the

Parrish also noted
that county regulations
are vaguely Written. Par-
rish offered his services
to revise the regulations.
Small County Technical
Assistance may also be
involved.
ITERA offered a num-
ber or restrictive covenants
as part of their proposal:
*Parcels can only be
used for residential or rec-.
reational purposes.
*No swine, livestock or
poultry are allowed. One
horse is allowed per acre,
and must be fenced. There
must be .a barn to house
horses.
*No unsightly or di-
lapidated building will be
allowed, except for pre-ex-
isting structures (there are
almost no structures pres-
ent on the property).
*Junked and inoperable
vehicles are not allowed.
Only one barn or outbuild-
ing can be constructed.
*Only site-built, single-
family homes are allowed.
Log homes are allowed.
Strict 1btiildinig standards
must be met.
*Single-story homes


must be at least 1,400
square feet, and two-story
homes must be at least
1,000 square feet on the
ground.floor.
*Home-based businesses
are allowed, but can only
get two express carriers
make deliveries a day and
cannot store inventory out-
side, nor are tractor-trail-
ers allowed. No signs that
advertise a business are
allowed.
*No parcel smaller than
20 acres can be subdivided.
Those 20 acres or above
(there are a total of 88
parcels) can be subdivided
once, and the new parcel
must be at least five acres.
*There is a 15-foot set-
back for any buildings.
*There will be a property
owners association that
will be responsible for pay-
ing for upkeep of all roads,
landscaping, mowing and
weeding, premiums of
insurance where needed,
administrative costs, and
legal fees among other
costs. This will be paid by
an annual assessment.
*The present covenants
will be in effect for 25
years and can be renewed
for 10-year increments af-
ter that, unless modified by
a 70 percent of members
of the property owners as-
sociation.
*There will be two ways
to enter and exit: the main
gate on Hwy. 177A and an-
other on Tobe Rutherford
Road. Canopy Crossing is
a gated community with a
fence surrounding some of
the property.


ITERA representatives
answered most of the
questions from the public
by quoting the covenants.
There is a possibility of
a fire department substa-
tion being set up nearby.
Fire departments and the
School Board have been
contacted to determine the
impact of the development
on their services.
After the public hearing
the Planning Commission
unanimously approved
recommending that the
Board approve the project.
The Board did so, subject
to recording the covenants.
These were provided in
writing to the Board.
There was an open
house at Canopy Crossing
over the weekend after the
Board's action, and one
salesman at the open house
called Saturday morning
"a madhouse."
Interested buyers from
all over Florida and other
states were on hand, and
reportedly 80 percent of the
lots were already optioned
by end of day Saturday.
With prices like $150,000
for lots, this may appear to
be high by Holmes County
standards, but buyers from
south and central Florida
jumped on this price.
Because of several
other developments with
features similar to those
of Canopy Crossings, the
Board recently approved
a moratorium on such
developments until the
comprehensive plan can
be revised. That process is
underway.

The stated purpose of

viduals from around Wash-
ington county. We look
forward, to a very active
and productive year during

8. The Washington
County Chamber of Com-
merce Foundation con-
tinues its efforts toward
establishing the the old
Chipley City Hall as the
Chamber's new perma-
nent home. The building is
now listed on the National
Register of Historic Places.
Additionally, the City of
Chipley has secured fund-
ing for historic preserva-
tion renovations.
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
2004/05, is the establish-
ment of three marketing
personnel (one in each
county) to better serve our
three counties: Candace
Croft guided the efforts in
Washington County, John
Hagans in Holmes County
and Alan McNair in Gulf
County.
These HubZone Market-
ers provide assistance to
businesses wishing to do
business with the Federal
Government. The Hub-
Zone certification allows
our counties' small busi-
nesses to compete on a
level playing field for Fed-
eral Government contracts,
enabling these businesses
to grow economically and
provide employment op-
portunities.
The HubZone Business
Opportunity Center was
funded through grant funds
from the USDA Rural E i-
terprise program. More in-.
formation on the HubZone
Program may be found
at: http://ewebl.sba.gov/
hubzone/internet/
.10. The Chambers's ad-
ministration of the Chipley
Redevelopment Agency
provided aesthetic evi-
dence of their continuing
commitment to improve
our business communities.


Through the Facade Reno-
vation 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
$205,000 in grant funds to
44 local property owners.
Additionally, the low-cost
CRA Revolving Loan pro-
gram provides 2% interest
on funds utilized for build-
ing renovation to upgrade
health and safety issues.
11. Through the Cham-
bers' participation, leader-
ship and determination
and in conjunction with
area economic develop-
ment coalitions (such as
Opportunity Florida, En-
terprise Florida, Florida's
Great Northwest and
Florida Economic Devel-
opers Council), the state
legislature has been well-
informed on the economic
needs and concerns of rural
Florida counties.
*Washington County
Chamber continues to pro-
vide leadership involving
the 16-county area of the
Rural Counties of Critical
Economic Concern. The
Rural Area of Critical Eco-
nomic Concern designa-
tion provides communities
with support for economic
development efforts and
authorization for waivers
of criteria, requirements,
or similar provisions of
any economic develop-
ment initiatives authorized
in statutes.
*Washington County
Chamber assisted in ex-
tensive. legislative lobby-
ing for the Florida State
Enterprise Zone program.
This program has been
fedesignated as of Januar
1. The Washington Couinty
Enterprise Zone have
been expanded to include
most of the city limits of
Chipley, as well as a zone
in Vernon and a reconfig-
ured zone in Ebro. An en-
terprise zone is a specific
geographic area targeted
for economic revitalizing.

12. Growth will, hap-
pen. How growth happens
in our communities is of
utmost importance to our
economic development
efforts. Providing oppor-
tunities for our children
to attain their greatest
potential and contributing
to a strong foundation for


their future success, is of
the highest priority in any
economic developmental
activity of our communi-
ties. Through the efforts of
the Chamber's Economic
Development Council, this
small sampling of evidence
of annual growth tells the
story (see above).
The viability and future
of existing businesses and
industries in our County
cannot be assured without
active participation of all
members of our com-
munities. Continuing and
consistent support of lo-
Scal businesses provides
the first step in preparing.
our future generations for
successful business lives.
Equipping them with the


means to succeed through
education and realistic
workplace experiences is
another step. Establish-
ing and embracing sound
growth and economic
development practices
enables future generations
the freedom to achieve
their potentials while sus-
taining the quality of life
which nourished them.
The attitude, commit-
inent and patience required
of all citizens in our County
today are the key elements
to the success, prosperity
and balanced growth of to-
nmorrow.

in Washington

WestPoint Home foundation for local industry

Chipley plant and its Marianna department a continuing force in tri-county economy


The 760,000 square foot combined facility is devoted to fabrication of comforters
bed skirts, pillow shams, decorative pillows, bedspreads, window treatments and
other items that extend the look of the be# to total room decor.


Governor Jeb Bush awarded the Governor's Business Diversification Award to
WestPoint Home, Inc. The award, sponsored annually by Enterprise Florida, Inc.,
came about as a result of the recent expansion of WestPoint in both Washington
and Jackson Counties. Opportunity Florida nominated the company in recogni-
tion for the economic and community support that WestPoint brings to the region.
Those receiving the award for the company included Terry Ellis, WestPoint plant
manager and Obadiah White, WestPoint distribution manager. Representing the
economic development agencies assisting with the expansion were Gary Clark,
Washington County Chamber Board member; Bill Stanton, Jackson County De-
velopment Council Director and Rick Marcum, Opportunity Florida Executive
Director. All attended a luncheon at the Governor's mansion on Monday, Septem-
ber 19.


Chipley Plant and its
Marianna Department may
represent a new company
name in the tri-county,
area, but the plant's opera-
tions are by no means new
to the local industrial com-
munity.
With 23, years under its
operational belt and two
years for its Marianna De-
partment- Chipley Plant is
the only Florida manufac-,
turing facility of WestPoint
Home a new company


created last August when
American Real Estate
Partners, L.P. (AREP) pur-
chased the assets of the old
WestPoint Stevens. AREP
is controlled by nation-
ally-known financier Carl
C. Icahn.
"Chipley Plant and our
Marianna Department are
really pleased to be part of
this new company," said
Plant Manager Terry Ellis.
"It's a winning combina-
tion our strong textile


heritage of almost 200
years infused into a new
company with a strong bal-
ance sheet and a strategic
plan for competing in the
global economy.
Even with increased
sourcing of product, West-
Point Home is committed!
to continuing a domestic
manufacturing base, and
all of the Company's
domestic fabrication and
distribution of bedroom
accessories is now done at


Chipley/Marianna.
The 760,000 square feet
of the combined Chipley/
Marianna facilities is
devoted to fabrication of
comforters, bed skirts, pil-
low shams, decorative pil-
lows, bedspreads, window
treatments and other items
that extend the look of the
bed to total room d6cor.
In addition to products
marketed under WestPoint
Home's own famous
brands, Chipley/Marianna
also fabricate accessories
domestically produced for,
well-known licenses such
as the upscale Ralph Lau-
,ren Home, the ultimate
luxury brand Charisma
and coming this spring -
the new Harley-Davidson
line, which will be at Har-
ley-Davidson dealerships
and select stores across the
country.
Customers for the vari-
ous brands and licenses
include such stores as Bed,
Bath & Beyond, Dillards,
Kohl's, Kmart, Target, Wal-
Mart, Stein Mart, Linens
'n Things, May Company,
Federated and Blooming-
dale's.
Currently, there are
some 950 associates at
the Chipley and Marianna
locations. "We've got an
excellent team many


have been with us since
our plant opened in 1983.
And we're always looking
for good people," noted
Ellis. "We offer training,
competitive wages and
outstanding benefits in a
high-tech workplace with
state-of-the-art equip-
ment."
Chipley/Marianna con-
tinues to be recognized as
an outstanding example of
workplace fitness and safe-
ty, cited as a "best practice"
ergonomic workplace
by the U.S. Department
of Labor's Occupational
Safety and Health Admin-
istration (OSHA).
With the demands of the
plant's fast-paced produc-
tion, Chipley management
regards the health and
safety of Chipley associ-
ates 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 inspec-
tion and recertification by
OSHA representatives.
"In our last recertifica-
tion in 2005, an OSHA
team took several days to
scrutinize every aspect of
our safety program and our


accident prevention per
formance," Ellis explained
"We were recertified and
look forward to achieving
this each time.
"We feel very fortunate
to be in the Washington
Jackson and Holmes in
dustrial community," he
stressed. "There is an
excellent atmosphere for
growth and development
The state of Florida, under
Gov. Jeb Bush; has pro
vided significant support
for our expansion.
"In return, Chipley and
Marianna strive to make
a positive difference. For
United Way, contributions
by our associates topped
$40,000 this year. And
using the formula that a
payroll turns three times in
a community, we can say
that the Chipley/Marianna
payroll has an annual im
pact of $50 million in the
tri-county area
"We're gratified by the
cooperation and sup
port that have helped our
growth here, and we ap
preciate the people of this
area buying our products
here at our local outlet
in department and mass
merchant stores and at our
retail outlets across the
country while traveling,'
Ellis concluded.

Sunny Hills leads residential development in Washington County


Sunny Hills experienced
rapid growth during 2005
that included the addition
of 23 miles of paved roads,
lot sales at a pace not seen
since the early 1970's, and
new home construction by
several builders.
Located about 16 miles
south of Chipley along
Highway 77, the Sunny
Hills community consists
of about 28 square miles
designed to contain 25,000
home sites. Presently there
are about 13,000 sold home
sites and The Deltona Cor-
poration has plans for de-
velopment throughout the
community with more new
roads to provide access to
new home sites.
Along with the new
homes, the sewer and wa-
ter plant is being expanded
for the originally devel-
oped area, and planning is
underway to build added
sewer and water plants for
areas with new construc-
tion.
Deltona recently re-
ceived initial planning ap-
proval to build both single
family homes and multi-
family units along High-
way 77 between Sunny
Hills Blvd and Shenandoah
Blvd for several hundred
new residents.
In Washington County
during 2005, according
to the Florida Associa-
tion of Realtors data base,
total real estate sales
were $72,347,753 and
Sunny Hills accounted
for 53 percent or a total of
$38,081,623. There was
probably a similar amount
that was unrecorded as
Deltona has a financing
plan for lots where the
buyer gets the deed when
the purchase contract is
paid-in-full.
Sunny Hills also ac-
counted for 57 percent of
all the existing residential
sales ($21,956,097) ..in the;
county, and 76 percent of
the vacant land sales at a
.total of $10,527,970.
Sunny Hills has about
18,000 acres and is 4.8 per-
cent of the total land area
in Washington County.
When 53 percent of the real
estate transactions come
from about five percent
of the land, that indicates
the high level of interest


With over 180 miles of paved roads, and more being built, Sunny Hills has about
50 percent of all the paved roads in Washington County, which insures quick ac-
cess to homes in the event of fire or medical emergencies.


by people wanting to own
and live in Sunny Hills and
Washington County.
Sunny Hills is benefit-
ing from the growth com-
ing north along Highway
77 from Bay County,
about eight miles to the
south, the expansion of the
prison facility about three
miles south to double it's
employment base, and a
steady flow of new resi-
dents from northern states
and elsewhere in Florida.
Sunny Hills may be the
last development in Flor-
ida of its size with exist-
ing infrastructure already
in-place with roads, sewer
and water, and recreation
and green space that offers
land at reasonable prices,
and-provides easy access
to all the amenities across
the Panhandle and Gulf of
Mexico.
Home prices range
from less than $150,000 to
about $400,000, so there is
.a-wide selection of-floor
plans. Several builders are
active in the community
and at any point in time
there are 40 to 50 homes
under construction. Plans
and permits have been
approved for a townhouse
style development, with
more to follow, and new
commercial construction is
also getting started within
the community.


Home prices range from less than $150,000 to about
$400,000, so there is a wide selection of floor plans.
Several builders are active in the community and at
any point in time there are 40 to 50 homes under con-
struction.


With the exception of
Deltona, who operates
model homes, builders are
constructing new homes
for specific customers,
rather than building with-
out knowing if the home is
sold (speculation building).
Builders during 2005 have
had a backlog of buyers
waiting for their new home
to be completed, and 2006
has also started with a
backlog.
Turner Heritage Build--
ers from Tallahassee is
about to complete con-
struction on three model
homes, and has several
homes already under con-
struction. McQuagge Con-
struction from Lynn Haven
had acquired an inventory
of lots prior to 2005 and


Sunny Hills Golf & Country Club


In December, 2005, the
Sunny Hills Golf & Coun-
try Club was purchased by
Tony and Debbie Ray, and
Frank and Barbara Mize of
Canyon Creek, Inc.
They have made sig-
nificant improvements to
the 18 hole course and are
booking tournament events
for 2006.
Plans have been drawn
to build a new clubhouse
facility that will be split-
level with an expanded pro
shop and locker rooms on
the lower level, and q first-
class restaurant and group
facilities on the ground
level.
The restaurant menu will
feature a variety of meat,
fish, and fowl prepared
under the supervision of
the managing chef, while a
lighter menu will be avail-


able in the deli shop on the
clubhouse level. For those
cooler days, the restaurant
will feature a see-through
fireplace.
Both the clubhouse and
restaurant levels will have
glass walls overlooking the
golf course. In addition to
being able to host group
meetings and provide
gourmet food, there are
plans to also develop con-
dominiums in the vicinity
of the clubhouse for use by
visitors for tournaments,
or if visitors just want to
stay a few days for golf
and enjoy the other activi-
ties within a short drive of
Sunny Hills.
As the population in
Washington County grows,
there are plans by the new
owners to also develop the
second 18 hole golf course,

has been building 8 to 10
homes concurrently during
2005, and the pace in 2006
is expected to continue.
Sunny Hills already has
a top-rated fire department,
and lower home insur-
ance rates, with all the
volunteers and the small
full-time staff trained as
medical emergency first
responders. Location in
Sunny Hills of an EMS
ambulance and staffing for
24-hour response has been
approved.


With over 180 miles of
paved roads, and more be-
ing built, Sunny Hills has
about 50 percent of all the
paved roads in Washing-
ton County, which insures
quick access to homes in
the event of fire or medical
emergencies.
Increased materials
costs during 2005 have
resulted in the average
price of homes rising,
and land prices for both
newly opened lots and re-
sale of existing lots have
increased during 2005.
Compared,to lot prices as
recently as 2003, new lots
are selling for 5 to 7 times
the 2003 prices.
A sample of new resi-
dents indicates a mix of
about 50 percent families
with school-age children
and 50 percent "empty
nesters" who have often
retired early and relocated
to Sunny Hills to main-
tain an active life style
with easy access to the
recreational, entertain-
ment, shopping, and other
amenities in Panama City
just 25 miles to the south.
While empty nesters may
someday become retirees,
that is several years into
the future.
It's anticipated that the
"Baby Boomer" genera-
tion will be attracted to the
Florida Panhandle in large
numbers, and that group


starts turning 62 in 2007.
Some of them are already
having their next home
built in Sunny Hills.
The impact of the new
international airport in
West Bay and the surround.
ing commercial/industrial
growth will be noticed in
Sunny Hills. Also, Chipley
is experiencing employ.
ment growth with new
plants locating in the in-
dustrial park areas.
Residents of Washing.
ton County can already
travel to almost any point
in the United States within
a few hours from Panama
City. The new airport will
offer more flights than
present, so people can live
in Sunny Hills or Washing.
ton County and still work
and travel a wide area by
airline.
Sunny Hills has a cur-
rent population of about
1,600 people, which makes
it second in size behind
Chipley, and Sunny Hills is
well on its way to becom-
ing the population center.
since growth in Washing.
ton County is progressing
from south to north. It's a
short commute for people
working, in either Chipley
or Panama City. The
Sunny Hills community
may achieve municipality
status within this decade as
growth continues through.

"We need to partner with
Bay County because we
are a small community,"
said Jyl Eickmann last year.
Eickmann, executive direc-
tor of the Homes County
Development Commission
and the Chamber of Com-
merce, has strongly advo-
cated a regional approach
,to development to benefit
Holmes County.
One development that
will impact on the region
is the new airport on West
Bay in Panama City. Ted
Clem, executive director of
the Bay County Economic
Development Alliance,
was on hand at the Janu-
ary 2005 luncheon of the
Development Commission
and Chamber to provide an
update on the project and
other development in Bay
County.
Clem described the land-
use meeting in December
2003 as "the biggest hurdle
in the whole process,"


with some doubt as to the
outcome. Clem noted that
Eickmann was one of the
supporters of the project
who spoke in favor of it at
the meeting. Eickmann said
that the airport was not just
a Bay County project, but
that it was an essential part
of economic development
for the entire region. The
land-use changes passed
just 3-2 in a vote of Bay
County Commission.
Clem said that once ev-
erything is cleared with the
Federal Aviation Agency
and other government en-
tities, "the dirt will start
flying."
"The studies indicate
that the airport will have
tremendous impact on the
region," Clem said. Esti-
mates of new jobs range
from 10-20,000. "They
will be in Bay County,
Holmes County, Washing-
ton County throughout
the region."


There will also be
improvements in qual-
ity of life, ranging from
improved air service to
total preservation of much
of the West Bay area. "It
will be just as pristine 100
years from as it is today,"
Clem said.
Clem described three
keys to economic success
that communities can fol-
low to take advantage of
the airport or other region-
al development:
*Get strong local sup-
port, including supporting
Chambers and develop-
ment commissions.
*Get regional coopera-
tion. "The economy does
not recognize boundaries,"
Clem said. "Recognize
the need to work together."
Founding the Florida's
Great Northwest organi-
zation is one example of
regional cooperation. "De-
velopers look at the region,
and FGN helps, establish


our identity as a region and
to market the region as a
place."
*Create a healthy busi-
ness climate. This includes
less business regulation,
good planning (an example
being the evolving devel-
opment district around the
Hwy. 79/I-10 interchange),
a business-friendly tax sys-
tem (Clem praised that ap-
proach by Gov. Jeb Bush),
a clean and attractive com-
munity (an example being
the ongoing interchange
beautification project),
quality schools, and incen-
tives.
Above all, keep the bot-
tom line of the term "quali-
ty of life" in mind "Qual-
ity of Life begins with a
paycheck," Clem said.

Economic overview offered -

for Washington County : "" -


Washington County's
economy is growing, and
from all appearances
will grow even more rap-
idly over the next several
years. Washington County
Chamber of Commerce's
Past President Jeff Helms
toured the area last year
reporting on Chamber ac-
tivities, including future
economic development.
Helms delivered a power-
point presentation at .the
regular breakfast meeting
of the Chamber in June
2005 that provided infor-
mation on recent develop-
ment efforts.
"The first rule in eco-
nomic development is to
protect your existing busi-
nesses," Helms said. Keep-
ing the Chipley West Point
Stevens plant was the first
priority under that rule.
Losing the West Point Ste-
vens plant would have cost
the area about $10 million
a year.
Considerable effort was
made to keep the plant.

Helms praised Plant Man-
ager Terry Ellis and the
late Tommy McDonald
for their efforts, which
were helps by A $750,000
road fund grant and a QTR
training grant administered
by Washington-Holmes
Technical Center. The re-
sulti $750,000 spent to
convert the former Rus-
sell plant in Marianna to
a WPS distribution/small
manufacturing center that
created 56 new jobs, and
an additional 133 jobs at
the Chipley plant. Helms
said that an additional $10
million has been added to
the area economy by the
expansion of WPS opera-
tions..
The additional employ-
ment at WPS reflects the
relatively high employ-
ment figures for the entire
area. Washington County
had an unemployment
rate of 3.2 percent in April,
well below the state's 4.2
percent rate (4 percent in
May) and the national av-

erage of 5.1 percent. The
preliminary rate for Wash-
ington County May is 4
percent, with 3.9 percent in
Holmes and Jackson coun-
ties. Walton County has
just a 2.6 percent rate for
May, and Helms noted that
even fast-food restaurants
in that county are paying
much higher-than-aver-
age wages to find workers.
Walton County has the
lowest unemployment rate
in Florida, according to the
Saturday, June 18 Panama
City News Herald. The
Panama City/Lynn Haven
area had a 3.5 percent un-
employment rate in May.
There are also more
workers in the area thanks
to population growth. In
2001 Washington County
had a growth rate of .69
percent, while in 2004 it
had a 1.84 percent growth
rate. Population is expect-
ed to grow about 1 percent

ITh e sate Department of
Transportation is propos-
ing to spend $200 million
to reconstruct 38.5 miles
of Hwy. 79 from two lanes
to four lanes. The project
will run from the north end
of the proposed West Bay
Bridge through Pine Log,

non to 1-10 at the Bonifay
interchange.. The project is
designated a Florida Inter-

tion, which could lose up.
to 1,800 jobs.
*It may be necessary
to build one or more spec
building. Helms 'noted
that the jury is still out on
whether or not spec build-
ings are worthwhile, but
he noted examples of how
not having such a building
may have kept a business
from locating in Washing-
ton County..;
Overall, the future of
Washington County looks
very bright, Helms said.
The Chamber is follow-
ing Tommy McDonald's
example and is taking a
regional approach to de-
velopment. For example,
while Washington County
didn't land the Family
Dollar distribution center
that went to Marianna, the
Chamber supported having
the center locate in this
area so Washington Coun-
tians could work there.
"On the heels of Famnily
Dollar more and more site
consultants are taking a
look at the 1-10 corridor as
a potential location for dis-
tribution centers," Helms
said.
That regional approach
includes national market-
ing by Florida's Great
Northwest (representing


16 counties) and Opportu-
nity Florida (eight counties
designated as RACEC).
Deltona is marketing Sun-
ny Hills nationally with an
informational video, and
St. Joe/Arvida is also mar-
keting nationally. ,
:Helijis .said thaf' 1 vith
economic opportunity
comes responsibility.
"Washington County
will have significant
economic opportunities
starting within five to six
years," Helms said:
*"We need to have a
clear vision along with a
strategic plan to address
future growth and eco-
nomic opportunities.
*"We need to recruit
businesses that are willing
to make a considerable
investment in Washington
County."
Helms noted a recent se-
ries of articles in the St.
Petersburg Times noting
that several businesses
only stayed as long as their
incentives lasted And then
pulled out.
*"WHTC should have
an opportunity to partner
with businesses at the new
airport to provide training
for higher-paying jobs.
"My hope is that in 15
years Washington County
will emerge from the
RACEC category."

miles with over 2,300 911
addresses), this can be a
serious hardship.
Those troubles in large
part may be over soon. A
well was drilled at the fire-
house on Hwy. 77 south
last year, and the well
should benefit more than
just Greenhead.
Fire Chief Chris Collins
said that Orange Hill Soil
Water Conservation Dis-
trict (OHSWCD) funded
the well, which cost about
$6,000. "If it wasn't for
them this would not be
happening," Collins said.
By having a well at the
firehouse GVFD will not
have to go all the way to
Sunny Hills or Wausau to


fill up. The Sunny Hills
and Wausau departments,
among others, can also
use the 8,500-gallon grav-
ity-fill tank when doing
mutual aid operations.
Water will also be avail-
able in other emergencies
in the area. For example, if
electricity goes out, water
can be obtained for various
uses at GVFD.
"It will also help the
district's ISO rating," Col-
lins said, which could help
reduce insurance costs.
OHSWCD was repre-
sented by Don Walters.
Wausau Fire Chief Sam
Rudd was also on hand
to watch the well being
drilled, as was Greenhead
firefighter Burl Law, who
Collins noted does a great
deal of the mechanical
work for the department.
Like other departments,
GVFD was making prepa-
rations for the weekend.
The trucks were being
"topped off' with fuel in
case gas ran low through
Labor Day. Washington
County EMA was contact-
ing all the departments Fri-
day morning making sure
their trucks were fueled up
and ready to go.

Groundbreaking held

for water project


The groundbreaking
ceremony for the $20 mil-
lion WasteWater Improve-
ment Program took place
on in October 2005 at the
Chipley City Hall (left).
State Rep. Don Brown
was among the dignitar-
ies who attended the cer-
emony. Don Berryhill of
Baskerville-Donovan, Inc.
addressed the crowd and
said that he was happy
to be of assistance. Mark
Shaeffer of Baskerville-
Donovan said this was the
first phase of a roughly $20
million wastewater im-
provement program.
Since Department of
Transportation (DOT) had
planned to resurface US
90, the project will begin


with replacing the sewer
beneath it. This will pre-
vent disturbing the pave-
ment at a later date.
The contractor will be
using technology called
pipe bursting where they
pull the new pipe through
the existing sewer pipes
that were installed many
years ago. The waterline
contractor will then re-
locate some of the city's
waterlines that are pres-
ently located beneath the
pavement outside the curb.
This will make leaks and
breakage easier to repair.
DOT will then resurface
Hwy 90 from Sinclair to
the DOT office. The proj-
ect includes sidewalk, curb,
and gutter replacement.

Hwy. 77 route sparks contre rsy throughout the year

The Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation's
(FDOT) alternative for by-
passing Chipley got mixed
reviews in Ocotber 2005
before Chipley City Coun-
cil.' There 'were few com-
ments made at the meeting
following a presentation
by Project Manager Kirk
Stull of HDR Engineering,
representing the Florida
Department of Transporta-
tion, and most were made
by Chipley Mayor Linda
Cain.
While the HDR :prpre-
sentative said that they
were still seeking public
input, Cain said that, "It
sounds like you've already
made up your mind." The
mayor expressed her con-
cern that the proposed
'truck route," or bypass
around Chipley will reduce
business activity in the city.


Cain said she supports the
project to four-lane Hwy.
77, but with reservations.
"We.want the money, we
just don't want our city to
dry up," Cain:said.
"The historic district was
a breaker." Stull said about
the possibility of running
a, four-lane through down-
town.
Stull said that accord-
ing to traffic projections
it, will be necessary to
greatly improve Hwy. 77.
Those improvements are
under ay in Bay County
north 'to the Washington
County line. It is projected
that average daily traffic
will double by 2030, the
established design year for
the highway. A four-lane
highway will be needed to
handle this traffic, at least
up to Chipley.
Stull said that traffic pro-


sections north of"Chipley
do not warrant four-laning
at this time.
The estimated $239.5'
million project includes
$187.5 million for con-
struction, $46.5 million to
acquire right of way, and-
$5.1 million for wetlands
mitigations.
"Improvements are
planned to handle more
traffic, improve safety and
meet state standards." Stull
said. The project will uti-
lize existing right of way,
but will be an entirely new\
roadbed. A 200-foot right
of way will be required.
The project has not been
funded yet, nor is it part of
the state's Five-Year Work
Plan as of yet. Portions of
the project are funded for.
design. The project is cur-
rently in the Project Devel-
opment and Environmental


phase.
Citizens Advisory Coun-
cils have already provided
feedback for the project
and the various alterna-
tives offered. Public input
has also been obtained in
Wausau and Chipley, in-
cluding a public hearing
at Chipley High School.
Workshops have also been
held.
The basics of the plan
are as follows:
*From the Bay County
line to Greenhead. shifts
to accommodate gas lines
between Blocker Church
Road and Moss Hill Road
(CR 279). There are no-ma-
jor alterations in the route
from Moss Hill Road to.
just south of Wausau.
*Just south of Wausau
a four-lane "truck route"
bypass will go to the east
around the town to where


Old Mill Road joins Hwy.
77.
Stull said that many
in WVausau wanted the
four laning to go through
downro%\n to keep traffic
in town and increase pos-
sible customers for local
business. However, many
buildings and downtown
itself are potential con-
tributors to the National
Register of Historic Places.
Using a downtown route
could lead to considerable
trouble with federal his-"
toric preservation regula-
tions.
"There are 11 properties
eligible for the Register,"
Srull said. There are also
cemeteries to the west of
town that would hinder
running a bypass in that
direction. There is also
only 75 feet of right of way
through downtown.


*North of Wausau there
will be a realignment to the
w\est from Old Mill Road
to Monroe Sheffield Road.
A realignment to the west
\ ill be done to accomm6
date Blue Lake Park.
*Stull said that the alter-
native being offered for
Chipley is a "truck route'
to the east of downtown.
The route will begin as a
circle south of CR 280, cut
up across 280 (through the
County sod farm), follow a
new road ay (initially two
lanes) north across 90 at
the location of the PBS&J
office, over the railroad
(including a new crossing).
past the industrial park
and rejoining Hwy. 77 at

NOTE: The project
apparently now extends
north only to I-10.

Buyers beware whe


Listed below are several
steps buyers should take, in
order to protect themselves
when purchasing land. The
information was provided
by the Washington County
Planning Office.
Look at the property..
Do not buy over the
phone or by mail.
Do not buy based on a
friend's recommendation.
Look at the fee amounts
required for purchase
and development (real
estate taxes, community
or, homeowner's assess-
ment fees, building permit
fees, deposits with electric
companies, and septic tank
fees).
Talk to residents that
live in the area.
Talk to other real estate
agents in the area and ask
how long it took to sell
similar property.
Check with the County
Planning Office to see
what new development is
planned for the area that
might affect land value.
If the land is undevel-
oped, find out who will be
responsible for the costs of
building roads, utilities, or
sewer. Talk to the utility
companies to find out what
the cost will be to place
power poles and lines into
undeveloped land.
Ask what percentage
of the property is within
environmentally protected
areas. These areas are des-
ignated by the Florida De-
partment of Environmental
Protection (FDEP), as well
as county-level govern-
