Follow Us On Facebook And Mobile Too! @WCN_HCT www.chipleypaper.com Connect With Us 24/7 City of Vernon liable for accidents on Wayside land By Drew Mudge Florida Freedom Newspapers VERNON An ongoing land dispute over who owns Wayside Park had its initial court hearing Tuesday, with both sides winning a partial victory. Hal Kirk, who says the land belongs to him, won a ruling that the city of Vernon is liable for any accidents that happen on the land. Of cials with the city of Vernon, who say the park belongs to the city, won their injunction request to prohibit Kirk from blocking access to the property, as he tried to do last week. Kirks main concern at the current stage of the proceedings is whether he holds liability for a person if he were to injure himself at the park. Kirk has noted throughout the land dispute that there are dead trees in danger of falling, a broken foundation at one of the picnic pavilions and exposed wiring at some of the pavilions. The courts ruling was that all liability for injuries will be the responsibility of the city of Vernon, until the matter is settled. City attorney Kerry Adkison said the deed gives ownership to the city. C.E. Miller deeded the property to the state of Florida in 1956; then the state of Florida deeded us in 1998, and thats the only deed in By Brad Milner Florida Freedom Newspapers CHIPLEY Before this season, long before Chipley won 11 games and advanced to the Rural Class 1A state football title game, Tigers coach Rob Armstrong singled out one name as the most important cog in the machine: Josh Myers. The senior quarterback has three years in Armstrongs system, which is run-heavy and requires him to throw about as frequently as one would see Halleys Comet. When he does throw, its typically with great success, however, as evidenced by last weeks game-winner over Bratt Northview in the state semi nal. Myers importance to the offense is much more than handing off the ball to Kobe McCrary or pitching to Ryan McIntyre or James Voorhees. Its about getting players in proper position and leading the Tigers emotionally. He Vernon Christmas Parade The City of Vernons annual Christmas Parade will be at 2 p.m. today, Dec. 10. Lineup will be at the track behind City Hall. Refreshments will be served in the Community Center, and Santa Claus is scheduled to make an appearance.

Rhythm DRI hearing postponed Florida Landings must submit development order by today By Cecilia Spears Staff Writer cspears@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY A public hearing concerning a proposed senior community has been postponed until the Jan. 10 meeting of Washington County Planning Commission, under the stipulation that developer Florida Landings can provide a development order by today, Dec. 10. Rhythm DRI is the name given to Florida Landings proposal to build a community in Sunny Hills that would cater toward the elderly. At the commissions Dec. 6 meeting, several residents requested that the Rhythm DRI hearing be postponed until February to allow residents ample time to review paperwork and present their concerns. County Planner Michael DeRuntz advised that the Jan. 10 meeting remain and that if adequate information hadnt been provided, the commission could table the issue until February. This hasnt given the public adequate time to air out their grievances, said commission member David Morris. The good people need their concerns addressed. Commission member Al Keown said if the paperwork wasnt received until the day before the meeting, that wouldnt be enough time for citizens to review and research the paper work. Theyve had 30 days to submit a development order, Keown said. Once its submitted, allow the public to review it for 30 days. The citizens agreed that 30 days would be an adequate amount of time for review of the development order, and the Planning Commission voted and Santa to visit Chipley tree farm today A2 IN BRIEF Vernon man cant block park access WASHINGTON COUNTY COURT RULING: GAME COVERAGE Chipley (11-2) played Jefferson County (8-5) at 6 p.m. Friday in the Class 1A state championship.

Local A2 | Washington County News Saturday, December 10, 2011 does well on the rst account, with Chipley rarely agged for illegal procedure penalties, and on the second, keeping the team level-headed. Hes one of those kids that no matter what, hes never too high or too low, Armstrong said. Sometimes as a coach that drives you crazy, even if you get on him, but thats what you want on offense. Chipley fell behind 14-0 after Northview scored easy touchdowns on Dec. 2. Momentum was squarely in the Chiefs corner, but Myers and the Chipley offense were never concerned, he said. We know that our offense is good enough to score points and keep us in the game, Myers said. We knew we could do it, we just needed to get where we needed to be. Myers watched as McIntyre carried two of his pitches for touchdowns to bring Chipley within 14-12 at halftime. Myers tossed a 53-yarder down the middle to McIntyre to cap a 25-21 victory and set a date with Jefferson County in Fridays 6 p.m. CST title game. Myers said Chipleys offense is pretty simple, but that doesnt diminish his role on the eld. Im the quarterback. Im the one that needs to lead the team, Myers said. Armstrong said Myers leadership has pushed Chipley this far. He said Myers also is pivotal on defense and lines up in a variety of positions depending on the opposing teams alignment. I dont even have enough time to go over how important he is for us on defense, Armstrong said. Myers is one of 12 seniors on the team, which also includes offensive linemen Taylor Smelcer and Garrett En nger. The remaining ve players on the line, which includes tight ends used solely for blocking, are underclassmen. Smelcer said the line and the team are comfortable with each other. Everyone helps with blocking assignments and each player knows where hes supposed to be. Much of that also is attributed to Myers running a well-oiled offense. Our team chemistry is great, and we play good as a team, Smelcer said. Everything just ows great for us. Armstrong agreed and said this team was one of his most favorite to coach. The coach said Myers keeps things running smoothly, which is vital not only to the offense but to the coaching staff for not having to worry about things being run in capable hands. With what we do its a credit to him and all our kids that we have discipline, Armstrong said. They all are mentally tough, they play for the name on the front of the jersey, its about the team. PARK from page A1 the chain from 1956. It speci cally described the park, Adkison said. Kirk said he had mixed feelings with the courts ruling. I feel that it was fair, he said. I feel the judge looked at all the evidence and understood. Im just trying to protect my own rights and my own self and just get what belongs to me. Ill have to wait and see how it turns out down the road. Kirk, who owns a canoe livery on Holmes Creek next to Wayside Park, maintains the deed gives him the land in the event the city abandons the property, which he said the city has done. However, city of cials dont agree and voted recently to keep ownership of the property. Further court dates for the disposition of the park have yet to be announced, but at this point Kirk said he still is set to dispute the ownership of the park. MYERS from page A1 RHYTHM from page A1 approved to continue the Rhythm DRI hearing Jan. 10, providing that the developer can provide the required documents by today, Dec. 10. Its not the Rhythm projects taking their time with the development order but its the Board of County Commissioners not responding to the development order thats causing it to be delayed, said Jim Town. The developer would like to keep the meeting time to keep BOCC moving. Commission chairwoman Tonya Pippin said once the development order is in, it will become available on the county website. By Ali Helgoth Florida Freedom Newspapers CHIPLEY Its hunting season. Its the time of year people ignore the chill in the air to go outdoors, where the lucky ones bag the perfect specimen to complement their home dcor the right size, the right coloring, the right smell. Christmas tree hunters who want to cut their own have several options in the Panhandle, including Maphis Tree Farm & Nursery in Chipley. For the past 12 years, Bill Maphis and his family have helped residents celebrate Christmas with the perfect tree. Every year starting in late November, families come to the tree farm to choose from Virginia pine, Leyland cypress, Carolina sapphire and Southern red cedar. Live potted trees are also available, so buyers can decorate for Christmas, then plant them outdoors later. Inside the of ce, a stream of photographs of families with their Christmas trees appears on a computer monitor. That right there is what its all about. See those smiles? Maphis said. He expects to see plenty of smiles today. Santa will visit the tree farm from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. If families traveling to the business cant nd the tree they want, Maphis said he will try to nd a nearby tree farm that has it. Its important people get the tree theyre looking for, he said. Other Panhandle tree farms include Havana Christmas Tree Farm in Havana, Lees Tree Farm in Grand Ridge, Powell Tree Farm and Vineyard in Sneads, Bouvier Farms in Baker, Whispering Pines Christmas Tree Farm in Milton and Strickland-Davis Christmas Tree Farm in DeFuniak Springs. Economic boost Raising Christmas trees has long been a part of Floridas agriculture economy. I encourage all Floridians to consider buying locally grown Christmas trees this holiday season, Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam said in a news release. Florida-grown Christmas trees provide many environmental bene ts to our state and buying from small businesses also boosts our local economy. Selecting a tree is the hard part. The process of cutting and preparing it to be taken home is relatively easy. Customers use hacksaws to cut down the trees, or someone from the tree farm can use a chain saw. The tree then is loaded on a cart and the customer pushes it to a shaker, where loose needles fall to the ground. A hole is drilled in the bottom of the tree so it can stand upright in a reusable Stand Strait tree stand, which is available at the tree farm. The tree then is bagged so it is easier to transport and bring into the house. At Maphis, trees are $6 per foot, up to 6 feet. Trees 8 feet or taller are $8 per foot. Once home, Maphis said its important to keep trees hydrated. A well-hydrated tree wont pose a re hazard, he said. Purchasing a live tree means it will be cut fresh, but its important to make sure it doesnt dry out. The U.S. Fire Administration reports needles on trees should be green and hard to pull back from the branches. The organization also states trees should not be placed close to a heat source that can dry out the tree. The tree stand should be lled with water at all times. For many of Maphis customers, selecting a live Christmas tree is a family tradition. For Maphis, raising and selling the trees is a family tradition. Although the selling season is about 30 days, growers tend to the trees year-round, just like any other agriculture crop. After a tree is cut, another is planted in its place. It could take three to ve years for a newly planted tree to mature. Selling Christmas trees makes up about 10 percent of the business at Maphis Tree Farm, Maphis said. But it bene ts more than the bottom line. Its a form of agritourism, a growing industry, and visiting a farm is one of the best ways to educate people in where products come from off the farm, he said.

BILL MAPHIS The Washington County Chamber of Commerce welcomed Smokers Depot with a grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony on Dec. 1. Smokers Depot is at 1691 Main St. near Walmart in Chipley. It sells bulk tobacco, cigars, pipes, dips, snuff and many accessories. They are open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. SPECIAL TO THE NEWS Kiwanis learns about schooling for homeless children Special to The News The Kiwanis Club of Chipley had several guests from Chipley High School at its Dec. 6 luncheon, and the featured speaker was Dr. Sandra Cook, Washington County superintendent of schools. Representatives of the CHS football team, CHS cheerleaders and CHS marching band were in attendance to receive checks from the Kiwanis Club to help offset travel and other costs related to representing CHS and Washington County at the football state championships. CHS played Jefferson County (Monticello) on Friday in Orlando at the Citrus Bowl. Checks were presented by Dell Corbin, chair of the Kiwanis Youth Services Committee, to Garrett En nger and Jordan McKinney for the football team; Julia Viet, Cameron Owens, and Richard Davenport for the marching band; and Kendall Whitson and Olivia Guettler for the varsity cheerleaders. Cook spoke to the club about the issues and solutions for the Washington County School District to comply with the McKinneyVento Homeless Education Act, which dates from 1987 and has been amended several times, as well as the Florida statutes that also apply. The purpose of the various laws is to ensure that every child has the opportunity for an education regardless of family circumstances and to prevent discrimination against children from less fortunate homes. During the last two years, Washington County averages about 160 students that are within the homeless de nition, or about 5 percent of the student population. The laws also provide certain protections to pre-kindergarten students for access to the Head Start program, which receives nancial support annually from Kiwanis, and to students participating in special education. Free breakfast and lunch programs are also reimbursed back to the school district for students in the homeless category. According to data shown by Cook, a signi cant portion of the homeless children in Washington County fall into the category of unaccompanied youth, which means they are not living in a traditional family structure, and might be living on their own physically away from immediate family. All students in the county are screened for family circumstances at the time of school enrollment, and students meeting the homeless de nitions are enrolled even if past school records, shot records and other academic records are not immediately available. The Florida Homeless Education contact for Washington County is Dr. Bobbie Dawson at the School District of ce, at 638-6222, or the guidance counselors at each school. The Kiwanis Club of Chipley has been providing support to youth-oriented events and programs for 70 years and last year supported 31 organizations throughout the county. The annual holiday fruit sales campaign has been completed, and orders should be available about Dec. 14. The nut sales campaign continues throughout the holidays, and gourmet nuts are available from Kiwanians and certain businesses that have a display for $20 per 3-pound can (no peanuts). The club meets at noon Tuesdays at Patillos restaurant in the middle of the WHTC campus. For an invitation, contact any Kiwanian or David Solger, membership chairperson, at 638-1276.

By Courtney Poppell Special to The News On Dec. 3, most of the JROTC Yellow Jacket Battalion went to the Boardwalk Beach Resort to enjoy a night of excellent food, hilarious dancing, and plenty of promotions, or in other words, the annual JROTC Christmas Ball. The night started out brisk as the ladies in their beautiful gowns and the gentlemen in their suits began arriving at Vernon High School to load the bus and depart for Boardwalk Beach Resort. Upon arriving, most of the cadets opted to have their pictures taken at the beautiful sleigh display. After the pictures were taken, all of the cadets lined up to be greeted by our lovely S-1, Carolyn Poppell, our delightful battalion commander, Maegen Sheehan, our charming guest speaker, Brain Riviere, and his exquisite wife. After everyone had been greeted and seated, the formal portion began. We started with the posting of the colors and an invocation. Following that were toasts and a wonderful meal. After everyone had eaten, Riviere gave a fantastic speech on the nine qualities of leadership. We were also honored with the presence of three of our ve school board members, Pamela Cates, Susan Roberts and Wayne Saunders. After Rivieres speech, our S-1 presented promotions and awards. We are proud of all of our cadets. Then, after the benediction and the retiring of the colors, the formal portion ended. For the rest of the night, all of the cadets spent the evening dancing and just having fun. At 11 p.m., we loaded onto our yellow limo and left for home. We thank everyone who participated in making this a night to remember. We especially thank Riviere for being our guest speaker and giving a marvelous speech.

The recently completed authentic log and stone cabin circa 1890 located at the end of a narrow trail in the Orange Hill woods was buzzing on the fth of December. Club members Angie Lane, Edwina Showers, Linda Pigott, Gweneth Collins, Catherine Nelson, Glenda Wilson and Karen Roland spent the morning festooning the cabin with wreaths and swags of yaupon berries, pine, magnolia, cypress, cedar, eucalyptus, holly berries and citrus in keeping with the 1890s cabin. A cedar tree was decorated with dried lemon slices, tiny pine cones, old-fashioned cloth ornaments, homespun bows, holly berries and bird nests.
