Connect With Us 24/7 Facility visitation restrictions lifted By Randal Seyler Managing Editor CHIPLEY Washington County Health Department tested inmates at the Northwest Florida Reception Center after 65 inmates became ill with u-like symptoms on Feb. 20. We did help with testing to see what caused it, said health department director Rick Davis. Symptoms included nausea and diarrhea, Davis said, and the outbreak lasted for a couple of days. Testing was performed via stool sample, and the results came back negative for bacterial or parasitic infections, Davis said. The health department did not test the reception center kitchen. The health department tests industrial kitchens, such as schools and hospitals, Davis said, but the department does not test Department of Corrections facilities. In fact, the number of kitchens the health department inspects has been scaled back as the mission of the health department has likewise been reduced. The health department does not inspect restaurants in Florida, Davis said. The outbreak was limited to 65 inmates and cleared up in a day or two, Davis said. Considering the number of inmates there, 65 isnt a big number, he added According to the reception centers website, the maximum capacity for the facility is 1,303. In November, more than 400 inmates from several different blocks and several food service employees reported u-like symptoms, including diarrhea. Ann Howard, spokesperson for the Department of Corrections, said visitations were restricted Naker announces bid for tax collector From Staff Reports CHIPLEY Ken Naker of Chipley announced his candidacy for the of ce of Washington County Tax Collector on Wednesday. The ofce is being vacated by Helen McEntyre, who recently announced her retirement. Naker is the current IT director/chief deputy tax collector for the Washington County Tax Collectors Of ce. He has worked with the tax collectors of ce for the last 17 years and has learned all aspects of the of ce by working directly with McEntyre for the past 10 years, he said in a news release. Naker is married to Vicky Mayo Naker of Chipley, and they have four children: Matthew, Christopher, Lathan and Kensi. The Nakers are active members of Orange Hill Baptist Church. After graduating high school, Naker enlisted in the United States Navy. While in the service, he began his studies in computer technology. After his stint in the military, he completed his studies in business/networking and computer programming. Naker began his employment with Washington County in 1995 as a computer programmer. Throughout the past 17 years, he has developed a number of software applications for the tax collectors of ce, including the current system used to bill, collect, track and report the activity and status of all parcels in the county. In addition, he developed the software program designed for the tax certi cate Panel approves rezoning request for convenience store By Randal Seyler Managing Editor CHIPLEY Members of the Washington County Planning Commission want you want you to attend their public hearings, at any rate. The county has been in the process of preparing a countywide land-use map and has held public hearings, but the public has been less involved than of cials prefer. I would like to see more attendance at future meetings, County Planner Michael DeRuntz said. It is frustrating that people are not getting involved, Chairwoman Tonya Pippin agreed. The purpose of the hearings is to seek public input into the land-use plan of the county. The plan recently received several amendments in the course of the months-long approval process for the Rhythm project, a 55-and-older community development planned for southern Washington County. The meetings also serve as a venue for the public to learn what can, and what cannot, be built in their neighborhoods. The topic of what can go where became central to the commissions rst item of business, which was a request for a rezoning from agricultural/silvicultural to general commercial zoning for a convenience store on Highway 279 near Vernon. Edward Dale Whiddon brought his plans for the 279 Express Convenience Store before the Commission on Tuesday night to seek rezoning. The store is planned to be 5,000 square and have six pumps for gasoline and diesel, which makes it too big of a project for neighborhood commercial zoning, DeRuntz said. Members of the Presbytery of Florida were on hand to speak against the project, because they felt general commercial zoning was too permissive and because should the convenience store ever change ownership, something else could potentially take its place, such as a bar, liquor store or a night club.

The location is 1331 South Blvd., Chipley, Florida. The purpose of the Executive Session will be to address legal issues concerning the county. FEBRUARY COLORING CONTEST WINNERS 1. 2. 3. 1. Mikayla Morgan Westville Grand prize winner 2. Rayna Little eld Bonifay 3. Dylan Baldwin Ponce de Leon Congratulations! The Rev. Kevin Veldhuisen told the panel the Dogwood Acres retreat center and summer camp, which the Presbytery of Florida owns, is across the road from the proposed convenience store. The certi ed letter the county had sent to the Presbytery of Florida notifying it of the proposed rezoning was returned undeliverable because the church organization had not updated its address on the county tax records, which can be one reason some residents might not receive noti cation of development or zone changes in their areas, DeRuntz said. We have children there in the summer, and we want to make sure nothing goes in across the road that could harm the kids, Veldhuisen said. Veldhuisen, Presbytery of Florida Associate Executive Presbyter for Outdoor Ministry and Spiritual Development, serves as Dogwood Acres full-time director, according to the Dogwood Acres website. The safety of our guests is our main concern, Veldhuisen said. I understand your concerns, Whiddon said. Im a man of God myself, I am not even going to sell rolling papers or none of that stuff. When asked if the store would sell beer, Whiddon said, Yes sir. Its going to be a regular convenience store. We want this to be a convenience for the community, not a nuisance, he added. The commission voted to approve the rezoning request. Now the recommendation goes to the Board of County Commissioners for nal approval at the boards 9 a.m. meeting on March 15. This is a case in point, DeRuntz said after the discussion of the rezoning ended. We did have a neighborhood meeting, and some residents expressed concern, but most were very supportive of the proposed use there. Increased attendance at the public hearings would bring concerns out into the open before the nal approval process, a stage at which developers do not arrive until after several months of work. I know for a fact they have been planning this for a while, Pippin said of the convenience store. Im happy hes moving forward with the project, DeRuntz added. sale and tax deed applications, according to the release. The Washington County Tax Collectors of ce is responsible for collecting millions of tax dollars each year, Naker said. Therefore, it is critical this of ce be lled with a person you can trust, a person who is honest, a person who is proven and a person who has the experience to handle the everyday demands of this of ce. I have experience assisting citizens with tag renewals, collecting current and delinquent taxes, tax deeds, bankruptcies, tax distributions and assists with preparing the of ce payroll and the of ce budget, Naker said. The of ce is currently in the process of adding the capabilities to issue and renew driver licenses. This will be a valuable service to the citizens of Washington County, and I have had the opportunity in helping implement this process. With 17 years experience in the tax collectors of ce and my dedication to the people of Washington County, I am uniquely quali ed to be tax collector, Naker said. I will work diligently to make sure every citizen is treated in a professional and courteous manner. I cannot change the laws, but I will work with each individual to achieve the best possible solution. he said. COMMISSION from page A1 last weekend because of the outbreak but said the restriction has since been lifted. We get sick inmates all the time, but typically there are no more than ve, and that often happens when they live in close proximity to each other. The DOC policy is to try to isolate the sick prisoners to prevent an outbreak from spreading, Howard said. If the facility is an open dormitory, then things can spread faster, she said. If we dont know the cause of the problem, then we call the department of health. Davis said there was no way to know what caused the outbreak. All the tests have come back negative, so the source can be pretty hard to track down. The one test that has yet to come back is the test for the norovirus. Noroviruses are a group of related, single-stranded RNA, non-enveloped viruses that cause acute gastroenteritis in humans. The most common symptoms of acute gastroenteritis are diarrhea, vomiting, and stomach pain, according to the Centers for Disease Control website. Davis said his rst thought on the infection was that it was probably related to food. It doesnt have to be, but it usually is caused by someone handling food with unsanitary hands.

Local A4 | Washington County News Saturday, March 10, 2012 Through technology, expand your religious knowledge In addition to attending my usual religious services, I enjoyed a ne service at the First Presbyterian Church of Chipley on Sunday, and my husband and I also visited Blessed Trinity Catholic Church in Bonifay on Wednesday night. While there, we observed the Stations of the Cross, which we found deeply meaningful. Additionally, Ive been in communication with some people from neighboring counties, including a member of the Bahai Faith in the Panama City area. If you dont know about that religion, its de nitely worth your time to do an online search. Ill be bringing you some more information on Bahai later, as one of their major holidays is approaching. Once again, I attended two different Sunday morning services. This time, just like last Sunday, I was fortunate enough to hear two different ministers discussing the same lesson. This time, the topic was the Biblical story of Abraham and Sarah. The couple was told by God that they would produce countless descendants despite the fact that they were both elderly and childless. When God gets involved, the word impossible no longer has meaning. I recently read a book of stories about Hindu gods. In those stories, the god Shiva performs many feats that normally would be deemed impossible. Miracles and wonders are not only part of the Judeo-Christian tradition, but also factor into the sacred texts and traditions of other religions. One is left with a lingering sense that though mankinds capabilities are clearly nite, people of various cultures realize that those of the Divine are not. Though its truly inspirational to read time-honored stories of faith and miracles, theres no need to hunt through the shrouded mists of antiquity to nd something extraordinary. Sometimes, miraculous elements surface in commonplace things. For instance, the Internet is a product of modern science and technology, but to me, there has always been something almost miraculous about it. Not only does it affect our daily lives in countless ways, but it also affects the way we look at religion. The face of religion worldwide has been irrevocably changed by the Internet. Consider the immense amount of information that is now available to the average individual. Information that was once completely inaccessible to the working classes is now available to all, young or old, rich or poor. If everyone could take a break from playing World of Warcraft, we could use the Internet to become among the most widely educated people the world has ever known. With education comes tolerance of other beliefs and cultures. Hence, we could also theoretically become more peaceful and advanced people, if wed just resolve to use our newfound knowledge prudently. The proliferation of knowledge on the Internet serves the dual purpose of both educating the public and thwarting authorities who were once able to withhold information from others. There was a time, and not so very long ago, when information could be easily controlled. That includes information about religion. In those days, if you didnt want kids to learn about other religions, it was easy enough to simply deny them access to books about those religions. But today, with a quick Google search, a curious kid will be treated to with staggering amounts of information on any imaginable topic. In countries where certain religions are suppressed or banned altogether, there is new hope. Securing electronic copies of banned materials and re-circulating them online is far easier than smuggling actual physical documents. With any luck, over time, information will circulate so quickly that the censors wont have a chance. Before the Internet, it was also easier to make false claims about religion. Some people spread misinformation, making untrue accusations against rival religious groups, while others made bogus claims about their own origins. One group claims to have been around for several thousand years, despite the fact that no one can nd a single example of them having existed at any point before the late 19th century. Another organization claiming ancient origins cant be traced back any farther than the mid-20th century. Fortunately, spreading falsehoods to the Internet generation is more dif cult than it was with previous generations. Those who consider such tactics today should think twice, because even a 10-yearold can publicly prove them to be dishonest. Thankfully, people can now double-check facts theyve heard through the grapevine before passing them along to others. Having massive amounts of knowledge available via computer is awe-inspiring. Its as amazing as Abraham becoming a father of nations in his old age. The story of Abraham is quite old, but still has relevance today. After all, some of the worlds largest religions are classi ed as Abrahamic religions. So he did, in that sense, become the father of an unimaginably large nation. His story reminds us that impossibility, a human notion, doesnt apply to God. If someone had told Johannes Gutenberg, founder of the European printing revolution, that an entire Bible could be downloaded online in seconds, he likely wouldve laughed aloud and declared it impossible. Abraham and Sarah are recorded as having chuckled at the thought of having children in their old age. Is there something in your life that seems impossible? Maybe its time to stop laughing at seemingly impossible solutions and try acting upon them, instead. Impossible is merely a dictionary word. Dont turn it into a lifestyle. Heres another thing thats not impossible: sending us your religion news. Is your group having a special event? Let the community know about it. You can either email it to me directly at archangel505@yahoo.com or contact the paper at news@ chipleypaper.com. Washington Countys Relay For Life will be May 11-12 at Pals Park soccer elds on Rustin Drive, starting at 6 p.m. May 11. This years theme is Storybook.
