JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
DeWayne Bohannon had a sad
task Thursday morning. Bohan-
non was burying Buddy, one of
his dogs, following a Wednesday
night fire that sent two family
members-to local hospitals.
Bohannon said he and his
family were asleep at their home
at 3379 Crossvine Court in the
Country Oaks Community. "It
was about 10:30 or 11 p.m.,"
Bohannon said. "My wife, Patsy,
woke up hollering."
Bohannon broke through a
window to get his wife and her
elderly aunt, Annie Alsobrooks,
out of the blazing trailer. Also-
brooks had passed out. Trailers
can be destroyed by fire within

Washington Chamber of Com-
merce unveiled its master plan
for the next several years Thurs-
day. Vision 2010...And Beyond
was unveiled at the regular
monthly Chamber breakfast at
Patillo's Restaurant at Washing-
ton-Holmes Technical Center in
Chipley.
The project has been in the
works since November 2006,
according to Chamber Board
President Paula Waller. The plan
includes adding development
initiatives.
The Chamber already had
two initiatives in place the
Economic Development Council
and the Executive Committee
that consists of Chamber officers.
The three new elements are:

There are two kinds of fire,
ants in Washington County. Most
people are aware of the ferocious
little insect that delivers a sting-
ing bite.
The other fire ants are bigger
and bring smiles to'people's fac-
es. They are the students home
schooled by the Treasurer group,
who formed the Florida Fire Ants
4-H Club, and took "they're all
over it" as their motto.

mantha Raney. They rounded up
photos, artifacts and information

"Colonial America and War His-
tory Fair." Some of the students
chose Colonial happenings, like


Thanksgiving, or one of the wars
America has fought.
Some of the booths featured
individuals like Pocahontas, who
was the great-grandmother of
Malinda Locke's great-grand
mother. She was born Nancy
Eleanor Creason, but the half
Potawatomi Indian of the Miami
Nation later took the name of
Pocahontas. Locke displayed a

IL'"i iiI-
Left to right: Jerry Obert, Fritz Wilson, Ralph John-
son, Kim Wilson, Kiwanis President, and Richard
Gilbert.


Guest speakers at
Tuesday's Kiwanis regular
luncheon meeting were
representatives of the Flor-
ida Baptist Disaster Relief
team who spoke about
their volunteer efforts to
serve people in need after
disasters like 911, Hur-
ricane Charley, Hurricane
Katrina as well as other
hurricanes and natural di-
sasters.
Fritz Wilson, State of
Florida Director from
Jacksonville, related that
his group is part of an orga-


nization sponsored by the
Southern Baptist Conven-
tion Disaster Relief Team,
which has operated for 40
years, has 40,000 trained
volunteers nation wide
and works closely with the
American Red Cross.
They served for two
months at Ground Zero
after 911, serving 24 hours
a day, seven days a week
at the World Trade Center
serving meals and clean-
ing 650 apartments in the
disaster area.
Richard Gilbert, repre-


senting the West Florida
Baptist Association of
Chipley and employed
locally by Gulf Power,
explained that his group
serves primarily in Wash-
ington County but also
worked with the Florida
Baptist Disaster Relief
Team after Hurricane Ka-
trina in 2005, which served
over 1.4 million meals in
the disaster area.
His group also served
after Hurricane Charley
in 2004 and explained
that the organization's


main purpose, rather than
preach, is to serve people
in need in the name of Je-
sus Christ and to exhibit a
Christian lifestyle.
Gilbert introduced two
off his Blue Hat volunteers,
Ralph Johnson and Jerry
Obert and made the point
that all the organization's
work is free and includes
crisis counseling when
appropriate. Some of the
equipment they use in their
work was on display in the
parking lot at WHTC after
the presentation.


Yard of the Month
Deann Vaughn of the Chipley Garden Club presents
Gerald and Arlen Deforge with the Yard of the Month
award. They live at 644 Third Street.

Volunteers needed
RSVP has two openings for volunteer receptionist.
Anyone who can spare a few hours a week, and would
like to spend them in pleasant surroundings, will be
rewarded for their effort. For more information, or to
volunteer, call Jerry Haviland at 638-6217.

PLAN
Continued from page 1
the property to be owned
by the Board of County
Commissioners.
Acadia Hardwoods, a
Louisiana-based firm with
five other locations in the
southeast, will occupy the
last 13 acres available in
the existing industrial park.
Everett said this is a "fast-
track" project that was
quickly accomplished with
help from several agencies.
The firm will relocate some
employees and hire others
locally. Acadia Hardwoods
handles quality hardwood
and soft hardwood for up-
scale furniture and cabinet-
inakers.
Another project in the
works is to find funds to
build a small "incubator'
building, which has proved
to be a successful way to
attract new business in
other areas. The building
would have three spaces
for small businesses. Once
the businesses grow they
would move to larger
buildings and another new
business would open at the
incubator building.
Membership Enhance-
ment would look for ways
to offer potential members
services "above and be-
yond what would normally
cause someone to join
the Chamber," Everett
said. The local Chamber
recently became a feder-
ated partner with the U.S.
Chamber of Commerce,
and the services available
to local members include
an update on Federal leg-
islation.
"We want to get our
members information
about what is happening
in Washington, D.C.," Ev-
erett said. He also urged
members to give feedback
to their elected representa-
tives. "If they don't know .
how you feel about certain


issues, they vote the way
they feel."
Everett said that the
Chamber also serves as
a "clearing house" for
information. He said the
hard-working staff regu-
larly gets calls from people
interested in Washington
County. "Hands down, we
are the busiest Chamber
around," Everett said.
The Chamber also plans
to open an office in the
southern part of the county.
Everett said that part of the
county is 'ready to take
off," and the Chamber
Board wants to have a lo-
cation in the south.
Washington County is
recognized as a Regional
Economic Development
Hub by the state, and the
Quality of Life committee
will be one that is tasked
with working in this area.
"The trick is to have eco-
nomic development and
keep our quality of life,"
Everett said. "You do this
by proper planning and
zoning."
The tourism component
of this is already in place
through the Tourist Devel-
opment Council, directed
by Dr. Sandra Cook.
"I think you will be very
pleased over the next year
with announcements about
industrial development,"
Everett said. One upcom-
ing announcement will be
for a new business in the
Ebro area.
Another announcement
in the next few months
will be for "Project Pipe,"
the next occupant of the
current industrial park in
Chipley. Everett said the
project is on track and once
transportation, utilities and
other issues are finalized,
the facility will come to
Washington County.
Everett also noted recent
news reports about two
new businesses coming
to the former Winn-Dixie


building in Chipley. He
said that confidentiality is
important when businesses
go into expansion or relo-
cation mode. "Word on the
street makes negotiations
harder," Everett said. He
also said that a number of
projects have been lost to
Washington County over
the years due to lack of
confidentiality.
This project was origi-
nally going to Jackson
County, but "they found
better here," Everett said.
"They felt like Washington
County was where they
wanted to be."
Washington County has
also been designated a
Rural County of Critical
Economic Concern. Under
this designation the Coun-
ty can set up Enterprise
Zones, which offer a num-
ber of tax breaks and other
incentives for business
expansion or setting up
new businesses. Permits
are also "fast tracked" by
the state. "At present this
is quite helpful," Everett
said.
Another project is to cre-
ate 300 new jobs by end of
2007, and then create 300
more in 2008. Everett said,
however, that the goal is to
create better-paying jobs.
"The average income
in Washington County is
about $22,000," Everett
said. "We are working on
creating jobs that average
about $34-35,000," which
is close to the state average.
This is part of the Cham-
ber's economic plan to be
presented to the Board of
County Commissioners on
January 25.
"If we can't get the coun-
ty the wages we need, then
we are going backwards,"
Everett said. "Jobs create
wealth."
The Chamber will form
several "action commit-
tees" in the near future to-
facilitate these plans.

Day Blacksmith (custom
handmade knives) by Co-
rey Wilson, and Southern
Belles' Fashion by Haley
Helms, a second grader.
Jesse Owen did a pre-
sentation on Colonial
America, while Connell
Donoghue highlighted the
Revolutionary War; Chad
Wilson presented a booth
with information on the
Stuka JU87D and planes,
gases, subs, and zeppelins


used during WWII; Brett
Wilson highlighted the
Civil War (1861-1865).
The first Thanksgiving
was presented, by Jes-
sica Wells, a third grader.
Shelby Briana Ward, of
the 10th grade also had a
Thanksgiving display. She
wore an Indian headdress
and her sister, Sydney
Elizabeth Cross, 5, wore a
long grey dress with a print
bonnet. Candy Staggs, a
ninth grader, portrayed
Betsy Ross, sitting in a
rocker with the American
flag on her lap.
Other booths were by
Mogan Locke, a sixth
grader, who used the
Civil War and the Battle of
Mobile Bay as his theme.
Joel Owen highlighted
WWI hero, Alvin C. York.
Jesse Kneiss of the seventh
grade also used World War


I as his theme. His brother,
Marshall Kneiss of the
first grade, had a display
on Jamestown: the first
settlement. Marshall built
a stockade in the shape of
the original encampment
with thatched buildings
placed inside.
A captured Viet Cong
flag was displayed. It is
half blue, half red with a
gold star in the center.
Judges were Aubrey
Davis, retired Navy Com-
mander, Charlotte Sapp,
and Jane Potter. They
carefully examined each
display, asking questions
about the students' indi-
vidual subject. Awards
were presented after a
surprise program. Richard
F. Kneiss, retired Army
Lieutenant Colonel, con-
ducted the program. He
served as a helicopter and


fixed-wing aviator in many
assignments both home
and abroad, including two
years in the Republic of
South Vietnam. He said
U.S. and Australian forces
fought together in Vietnam.
He displayed mementoes
of that time.
Kneiss, who was born in
Ohio, retired in 1978 with
a disabling eye disease. He
and his wife, Polly, settled
in Chipley where he raised
registered American Quar-
ter Horses.
Davis shared the stage
with Kneiss, being called
upon several times to
discuss memories the
two men shared. He was
a Navy Seal Commander,
and spent 24 years in the
U.S. Navy. Back home, he
owned and operated Davis'
Nursery.
Incidentally, Davis now


does landscaping while
Kneiss grows Christmas
trees.
Malinda Locke helped
Raney present certificates,
potted narcissus and other
items to the judges and
speakers. Certificates
were presented to students
preparing the 17 displays.
No one went home empty
handed.
Blue ribbons and tro-
phies for first-, second-
and third-places were
presented to those chosen
by the judges.
Jessica Wells won a blue
ribbon in the K-third grade
category. Haley Helms
won second place, and
Connell Donoghue, third.
In the 4-6 division, Mo-
ran Helms won first place,
Joel Owen was second,
and Morgan Locke, third.
Winners in the 7-9 cat-


egory were Jesse Kneiss.
first; Candy Staggs, second.
and Chad Wilson, third.
Brett Wilson won first in
the 10-12 grades division.
The little fire ants were
"all over" the meeting room
at the Chipley Ag Center
minutes after photos had
been made. Each student
removed his/her display
until nothing was left but
the table where a sandwich
lunch had been served
to the kids, and refresh-
ments were available for
those coming to view the
displays.
Samantha Raney, chair
man for the event, said she
did a disaster fair through
4-H and everyone enjoyed
it, so she decided to do a
history fair.
"Everybody showed up.
and I think it went very
well," she said.

NEW BUSINESS


Bank of Bonifay has ribbon cutting


DONNA DYKES
Staff Writer
It was standing room
only Jan. 16 when mem-
bers of Washington County
Chamber of Commerce,
friends and customers
gathered for the formal
opening of the Bank of
Bonifay's new branch of-
fice in Chipley.
The weather had a lot to
do with the crowded con-
ditions. The ribbon-cutting
was moved into the bank's
lobby when rain, which
had begun earlier in the
day, continued to drizzle.
In addition to the big red
ribbon, chamber members
had printed a long chain of
outsized dollar bills to be
cut during the ceremony.
President Steve Thames
and branch manager Kathy
Rudd did the honors.
The bank also received
its framed dollar with
congratulations from the
chamber's Executive Di-


rector Ted Everett.
Refreshments were
served following prayer by
the Rev. Gary Wiggins of
Chipley.
The branch opened Dec.
9 in its new building at
1012 Main Street. Hours
of operation are 9 a.m. to
4 p.m. Monday through
Thursday and 9 a.m. to 5:
30 p.m. Friday. The drive
through window opens at
8:30 a.m. Monday through
Friday. Most days it closes
at 4:30 p.m. but it's open
until 5:30 p.m. Friday,
according to Laurie Peel,
personal banker.
Other employees are
Kathy Rudd, branch man-
ager, Heidi Isaacs and Am-
ber Moore, tellers.
There's plenty of park-
ing in the back. The phone
number is (850) 638-7892.
Bank of Bonifay also
has branches in Marianna
and Destin.
