Shiloh Baptist Youth Team concert WASHINGTON COUNTY The Shiloh Baptist By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT email@example.com CARYVILLE The Town of Caryville reviewed the contract for its new garbage truck during their regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday. First of all, I think its peculiar that we even got a garbage truck without signing a contact rst, said Town Attorney Lyndia Spears. Second of all, Im really apprehensive of this contract because it is drastically one-sided and not in our favor. She said it was a seven-year contract that would cost the town $130,000, with $18,000 of it being interest. The town then needs to prove that this item will not only be tax-exempt, but that it will be the only taxexempt item that the town owns, Spears said. Im no tax attorney, so I dont know if this or anything else we have is tax-exempt. She said the contract says that if anything happens to the vehicle, the town would be responsible for it unless it has a warranty that if anything happens it would be against the vendor not the lender, prove they have suf cient funds and if a payment is late then they will charge 12 percent interest and collect the vehicle. Even stranger is that they want me to place this contract on my letterhead and sign it, and since I highly advise against it, then I will not, Spears said. But even if I do advise against it, Im only your legal advisor and have no authority over you as a council. Hall seeks position on Washington commission From Staff Reports CHIPLEY Travis Hall announced his candidacy for County Commissioner District 1 in Washington County on Thursday. I was born and raised in Washington County. I love and believe that with our creeks, rivers, hunting and good southern living, Washington County is one of the best places in this country, Hall said in a news release. I am concerned greatly by the leadership in this county, and about the lack of faith and trust in our government, Hall said. I have decided that instead of complaining, I am going to get involved. Hall is the son of John and Judy Hall, and he said his family lived here even before Washington County was established. I have owned and operated our family business for nine years and believe that trust is a key characteristic in a person, Hall said. In my business I deal with people and their personal information, and I have earned the trust of these people. I believe that likewise, representation of the county requires business sense, trust and common sense. I ask that you allow me to serve this county with the honesty, integrity and love that you deserve and that I have demonstrated throughout my life. I ask you for your support and your vote, to allow me to serve Washington County as County Commissioner District 1, and to let me prove to you, the people of Washington County, that there can be representation in which you can trust and of which you can be proud, Hall said. By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT firstname.lastname@example.org CHIPLEY The nal frontier is far from being closed to the United States. NASA has several new rockets in design that will take American astronauts not only to the space station, but eventually to Mars, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson said Thursday while speaking to local residents, elected of cials and business leaders in Chipley. The space program isnt shutting down, its just warming up, Nelson said. Nelson, a democrat, was in the Panhandle this week meeting with business, civic and political leaders in Washington, Jackson, Calhoun and Gulf counties. He was holding town hall meetings across Florida, giving updates on recent happenings in Washington and hearing from leaders on issues affecting the local community. The topic of NASA came up during the mornings Q&A session, when Washington County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Ted Everett asked why the government was dismantling the Rep. Southerland visits Kiwanis Club By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT email@example.com CHIPLEY Service is the best type of leadership. That is a value U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland of Panama City said he learned growing up in the family business, which happens to be a funeral home. If you call us at 2 a.m., then at 2:30 we are at your door in a coat and tie, Southerland, 46, told the Chipley Kiwanis Club on Tuesday. A Republican, Southerland represents the states 2nd congressional district in Washington, D.C., a place where service leadership, like common sense, is often lacking, he said. We de nitely have our challenges in Washington. Even our issues have issues, he joked. Southerland said his family has lived in this district for more than 200 years, and the family business, Southerland Family Funeral Homes, was founded by his grandfather following World War II in 1955. Southerland is co-owner and president of the company. I had never served in public ofce before this election, he said, adding that in 1983 he was elected class president in high school. So were 2-0 for elections, he added, laughing. In the funeral business, Southerland said his family walked with people through a very bad time, and under those circumstances, TRAVIS HALL Hard work, honesty and service RANDAL SEYLER | The News Sen.

Local A2 | Washington County News Saturday, April 14, 2012 notice. Spears said she was able to talk with a representative from Gulf Power about the towns proposal. Caryville Town Council approved to pursue a settlement with Gulf Power during their regularly scheduled meeting on March 13 after a lumber company recently employed by the town cut down trees on land owned by Gulf Power. The Town of Caryvilles land borders Gulf Powers land, and the man we hired went too far when he was cutting, Spears said. Unfortunately, we are unable to see how much money he received for the amount of trees he cut and if that money was included to the city when he paid for the trees. Spears said Gulf Power estimated an amount by the stumps left on their land, but instead of charging the town with the amount they usually would receive for their trees from their contractor, which would have been estimated at more than $9,000, they decided to go with what the town would have received, which is $5,272. Because the town council agreed that they didnt authorize for the contractor to cut down the trees, the council approved to pursue only paying half of the $5,272, which is $2,686. The council also is going to see about paying the amount to Gulf Power in payments while looking into getting the contractor to pay the other half. Just going to court alone would cost over $4,000 in legal fees, Spears said. It would be best at this point to minimize the damages as much as possible. She said she spoke with the representative, who said he would present it to his superiors and would contact her with a reply. Chambers said he heard that Council member Debra Pugh had moved outside the town limits and asked Spears for advisement. I advise that you should send her a letter to con rm or deny these allegations to her last known address, Spears said. The town approved of sending a letter to her last known address for con rmation. A woman wants to cook at the ea market every weekend, Chambers said. I told her shed have to have a $6 vendors license, and I would present it to the council. The town approved to allow her to cook if she purchased a license. The town approved of a ea markets owners request to pay half of the $250 to place a light pole at the ea market so they could have power. Council member Jim Taylor informed the council there would be a controlled burn by the Florida Division of Forestry between Church Street and Monroe Street soon. The next regularly scheduled Caryville Town meeting will be at 6 p.m. May 8. Chairman Henry Chambers made a motion to accept the contract. With the economy being the way it is, we wont be able to get a bank to nance us, Chambers said. Council member Ransom Works said he agreed that there wouldnt be a bank that would want to nance them, but he still didnt quite want to sign a contract he didnt understand. The motion died from lack of a second and was tabled until further OF CHIPLEY, INC.

Nelson spent six days orbiting Earth In January 1986 as a payload specialist aboard the space shuttle Columbia. According to his website, that experience gave him a new perspective on the Earths fragile environment and a greater appreciation of the importance of our nations space exploration program. I think 98 percent of the American people feel the same way you do, Nelson told Everett. The truth is, we think that because the shuttle program has been shut down. The shuttle program was shut down because following the Columbia accident in 2003, it was mandated that the program be used just as long as necessary to complete the space station. The design of the space shuttle, with the craft being mounted on the side of the rocket, was not as safe as if the capsule had been on top of the rocket. Having the shuttle mounted on the side subjected it to debris from the rocket, Nelson said. NASA is in the process of developing new rockets for carrying American astronauts into space, and the new design puts the capsule back on top of the rocket. With the capsule on top, if something goes wrong, it can separate from the rocket and parachute back to earth, Nelson said. Shutting down the shuttle program had a devastating effect on Brevard County, where 7,000 NASA employees lost their jobs. Brevard County is Nelsons home county, he said. It was gut-wrenching what happened in Brevard County, Nelson said. The number of workers at Cape Canaveral dropped from 15,000 to 8,000 following the end of the shuttle program. The goal was to shut down the shuttle program and replace it with a safer rocket, Nelson said. Unfortunately, the new rockets were not ready as soon as planned, but the rst test launch of the new prototypes is planned for later this month from Cape Canaveral. According to the website NASA. gov, the Falcon 9 rocket will launch the Dragon capsule to the International Space Station. Pending completion of nal safety reviews, testing and veri cation, NASA has agreed to allow SpaceX to send its Dragon spacecraft to rendezvous with the station in a single ight. SpaceXs Falcon 9 rocket is targeted to lift off at 11:22 p.m. April 30, on a mission to become the rst commercial company in history to attempt to send a spacecraft to the International Space Station, according to NASA.gov. SpaceX is formally known as Space Exploration Technologies Corp., founded by former PayPal entrepreneur Elon Musk. NASA has also awarded SpaceX a contract to develop and demonstrate a human-rated Dragon as part of its Commercial Crew Development program to transport crew to the ISS. SpaceX is planning its rst crewed Dragon/Falcon9 ight in 2015, when it expects to have a fully certi ed, humanrated launch escape system incorporated into the spacecraft. In addition to NASA contracts, SpaceX has signed contracts with private sector companies, nonAmerican government agencies and the American military for its launch services. It already has launched, for a paying customer, a low earth orbiting satellite with its Falcon 1 booster in 2009. The company plans to launch its rst commercial geostationary satellite in 2013 from a Falcon 9. The Falcon launch vehicle family is designed to provide breakthrough advances in reliability, cost, ight environment and time to launch, according to spacex. com. The primary design driver is and will remain reliability. Like Falcon 1, Falcon 9 is a two stage, liquid oxygen and rocket grade kerosene powered launch vehicle. It uses the same engines, structural architecture (with a wider diameter), avionics and launch system. The space station is huge, Nelson said, bigger than a football eld. The launch on April 30 will send a test capsule to the space station with supplies and is part of the redesign efforts by NASA to come up with safer space travel. Future target dates for NASA include launches in 2014 and 2017 with the goal of reaching an asteroid on 2025. Travel to Mars with current technology will take 10 months, and the astronauts would have to stay on Mars for a year until the planet was close enough to Earth for a return trip. One friend of mine is working on a plasma rocket that could get astronauts to Mars in 39 days, traveling at 400,000 mph, Nelson said. In March, NASA released plans for to use the space station to stage a mock Mars ight to train astronauts. It would be patterned after Russias mock ight to Mars that lasted 520 days at a Moscow research center. Six men were involved in that study, which ended late last year. They were locked in a steel capsule. NASAs future for manned exploration is up in the air as the debate drags on as to where astronauts should head in the decades ahead: the moon, asteroids and/or Mars. The cost promises to be a major factor, along with the development of rocketships big enough to travel so far. Suffredini said he expects the consensus ultimately will be to simulate at least the rst leg of a trip to a distant planet. Nelson said the ultimate goal is a safe, reliable space taxi and that is what NASA is working on for the future. We launched a probe to Mars a few months ago that was the size of a Volkswagen, Nelson said. The future looks excellent for the space program. The Associated Press contributed to this report. customers often become more like family. When Southerland sought of ce, he said there were quite a few jokes around Tallahassee about a funeral director running for of ce, but it was because of having been a funeral director that Southerland had what it took to win, he said. It was because of the lessons I learned in that little house, he said. Hard work, honesty and service. Though Southerland had no magic wand to make people feel better after losing a family member, he said his familys way of helping was to crawl down into the grief and hurt with them. The purest form of leadership is to get down on your knees and serve, he said. Happiness is a mindset, Southerland said, and happiness has nothing to do with how much money one has or what items one possesses. None of our funeral vehicles have a trailer hitch on them nobody gets to take it with them, he said. Southerland said he was raised to believe work was more than just an expectation, but a gift. Growing up in the funeral services, the family home had six telephone lines, and calls would come in all times of day and night. Sometimes we would have to turn the TV off because dad was talking to someone, walking with them through one of the worst times of their lives, he said. Sure, we would be disappointed, but we learned to handle it. These days people dont deal with disappointment very well, especially in Washington, Southerland said. For us, working was a gift, and we had the opportunity to be successful, as well as opportunity to fail. Though there are no perfect countries, just as there are no perfect churches, Southerland said America is one of the worlds greatest, most benevolent countries. When youre a Haiti or Japan, you love it when you see America coming, because you know were bringing help. The de cit problem the nation faces is one of the prime concerns for Southerland, and he said something has to be done to cut down on spending. If your tractor is stuck in the ditch, you dont start painting it, he said. But in Washington, they go out and buy all kinds of paint, attachments Get the tractor out of the ditch. Southerland said his opinions make him sometimes unpopular with his own party in Washington, but that is all right with him. I didnt go to Washington to be a congressman, I went to be a representative. I want to serve you, the people I represent. I dont want the day to come where I start thinking, Ah, Im a congressman! When I wake up in the morning thinking Im a congressman instead of a representative, then I am going the wrong way.

Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Ted Everett explained that the leases would be part of a statewide initiative to bring high-speed, high capacity broadband service to counties served by Opportunity Florida through the Florida Rural Broadband Alliance. Opportunity Florida, along with its sister organization, the Florida Rural Heartland Economic Development Initiative, are co-owners of the Florida Rural Broadband Alliance. The project is part of a federal stimulus program spending billions to get the nations broadband infrastructure completed, Everett said. Opportunity Florida is using $34.7 million in grant funds to complete this project, and we are to come up with $10 million in kind services as our part of the project, Everett said. Letting the broadband project use two of the citys towers ve years rent free goes toward paying the city and countys in kind debt. After ve years the city will receive income of $2,200 a month for each of the towers the project uses, Everett said. The Opportunity Florida project will bring broadband internet to eight rural counties. If youre like me, and live out in the county, you cant get high-speed internet, Everett said. The project will not only help residents surf the internet faster, but the broadband network will serve as the backbone of information services. It is a utility, and some towns might consider providing internet the same way they provide water and sewer or electricity, Everett said. If you wanted to start a company as a provider, you could do that. Everett said businesses had looked at placing a call center in the old Winn-Dixie building in Chipley, but due to a lack of broadband availability, which meant the telephone traf c could not be provided that the company needed, the call center went to a different community. This is a very huge vote, not just for Chipley, but for the area, Everett said after thanking the council for their votes. We cant even imagine what this is going to mean for the area ve years from now. The city of Vernon approved a similar resolution Monday at their April City Council meeting allowing the broadband project to use the citys tower. There was also some controversy on the council following the discussion of the sole bid the city had received for the EECBG lighting project. The city received one bid from Mayer Electric Supply, for about $136,000. Councilman Roger Sloan took exception with the citys receiving only one bid. I see a pattern here, Sloan said. How come I can get three bids just like that and we always only get one bid? Sloan said the city was not advertising in the right place to get bids, adding that big construction rms were not going to be looking in small local newspapers for bid advertisements. Sloan also said he contacted three local rms and they were all interested in doing the work. If theyre local, then why didnt they bid? asked Mayor Linda Cain. If theyre local, they know to look in the local paper. Sloan veered from the bid question and asked City Administrator Dan Miner if he or any city employees had gone on hunts with Empire Piping. Miner said he was offended that Sloan was accusing him of improper behavior. We go by the city procurement package as we are required to do. Patrice Yates, assistant city administrator and city clerk, said that the city had been contacted by four rms for information so they could bid on the EECBG project, but only one had actually turned in a bid. Sloan said the city should go out and nd bidders instead of advertising for them. Miner explained that the city doesnt solicit bids unless no one bids on a project after it has been duly advertised, as required by law. Only then is the city allowed to solicit bids. If you go out looking for bids, and there are ve companies in your town and you only contact three of them, then you can get into trouble, the mayor said. There are certain times we have to solicit bids, Yates said, but we dont do that unless we have to. By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT email@example.com CHIPLEY The city of Chipley honored some homegrown celebrities Tuesday night. Mayor Linda Cain read a proclamation declaring April 8 as Lotta Davis Day. A 50-year resident of Chipley, Mrs. Davis turned 100 years old on April 8, and she was honored by the City Council in front of an audience full of residents for her years of service to the community. Besides being a teacher for 20 years, she and her husband, Joseph Fern Davis, owned and operated the Vance Theater for years. She was born on April 8, 1912, in Dothan, Ala., and married Mr. Davis in 1935. He passed away in 2001. They have one daughter, Cheryl Suarez. Mrs. Davis is a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Chipley, and she was elected president of the Womens Club from 1956-58. She told a story to the audience of her days as a teacher, and invited everyone to her birthday party scheduled for 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, April 15, at the Presbyterian church. The council also honored the Chipley High School basketball team with a proclamation, and unveiled the planned sign the city intends to install at the city limits which will state that the Chipley Tigers are the 2012 State Champions. Were very proud of all of you, and we know you have an excellent coach, the mayor said.

This individual, during the height of Harry Potter mania, would dress up like various characters from the series and attend parties with other costumed fans. Im not talking about a little kid here. Im talking about a grown adult. Ive covered conventions where people dress up like characters from TV shows and anime series, or take part in live-action roleplaying games. Thats the kind of dedicated fan base that a good series can spawn. When I was a teenager, decades before the Peter Jackson movies, reading The Lord of the Rings was all the rage. One could nd the phrase, Frodo lives! scrawled on walls from London to Los Angeles. If you werent into Tolkien or his series, you wouldnt get it. The reference was strictly for the fans. Theres something about a good epic story that can captivate the human mind. Books, TV series, lms, and even cartoons and soap operas can get people hooked. In earlier historical periods, wandering bards and minstrels would travel from town to town reciting epic poetry and weaving larger-than-life stories about heroes. If people found themselves longing for the next installment, theyd either have to wait for the bard to come back around, or write the next chapter of the story themselves. An endless supply of myths and legends have been generated about the exploits of both humans and gods. With the building of the rst camp re came the rst person to sit down beside it and start telling stories. Storytelling is one of the things that we, as humans, do best. But a person whos completely addicted to any of todays popular stories might, paradoxically, be bored stiff by religious services. Why? Almost any given religion has stories packed with excitement, drama, adventure and intrigue. If its supernatural characters one wants, many of the worlds sacred texts are full of them. Gods, angels and men frequently interact, and characters embark upon astonishing heroic quests and journeys. Part of it has to do with discovery. A kid whos never been permitted to ask questions about religion has not truly discovered that religion. Its like trying to take a test after someone has already handed you all the answers. It becomes a meaningless exercise. Demanding that someone get excited about a book that he or she is being forced to read doesnt make much sense. Also, stories can get worn out from sheer repetition. Even die-hard fans couldnt bear watching endless re-runs of a single episode of their favorite show, especially if that episode were picked by a third party. Its ne to re-read books, but most people arent going to read one story to the exclusion of all others. Over time, people want to discover new books. A fresh book, TV show, movie or religious experience can be captivating precisely because its new (or at least new to you). Its an adventure you havent personally taken before. Fortunately, we can take even the most wellworn adventures and make them new again. After many years of attending religious services, one might start nding stories of faith a bit dull around the edges. If so, its time to liven things up a bit. Ive often found that its not the stories that are lacking in excitement, but me. For instance, I remember my father and I reading the Book of Job together when I was in the second grade. I thought it was the most amazing, profound thing Id ever read in my life. Wed study a portion of it and then discuss it over pizza. He found an illustrated version, which also helped bring it to life. But by the time I was a college undergraduate doing a research paper on the Book of Job, I was considerably less enthused. The story hadnt changed at all, but I certainly had. It had become dull to me, worn out from familiarity. I had to travel back in my own mind to re-create the excitement I had known upon my initial encounter with it. Some schools of Zen Buddhism discuss a concept called beginners mind. One way of triggering the beginners mind is to start with a complete lack of assumptions and expectations. Its a quick way to both dispel boredom and rekindle a sense of discovery. It can apply to anything, including religion. Jesus notes in Matthew 18:3 that except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. He may have been reminding us to approach faith with a beginners mind. In the book Zen Mind, Beginners Mind, Shunryu Suzuki notes that while in the beginners mind there are many possibilities, in the experts mind there are few. Young children who grow up attending Christian churches are often taught catchy little songs. Its easy to dismiss tunes like This Little Light of Mine, Jesus Loves the Little Children, or Hes Got the Whole World in His Hands, as silly little Sunday School ditties for the pre-school set. But if you know one of these songs, try singing it again. Maybe you havent sung it in decades, or maybe you heard it last week. It doesnt matter. Just think about the words as if youd never heard them before. Its like discovering a whole new song. Theyre old tunes, but you can make them new again. If it helps, try imagining different settings of the song. Imagine it being performed by one of the worlds great symphonies, or being sung very simply and without accompaniment by a beloved relative. Imagine it being sung by a toddler. Play with it. Add lyrics. Its your new song; you can play with it all you want. I tried this with a Stations of the Cross service. I attended three of them recently. At one point, I decided to approach the story of the cruci xion as if Id never heard it before. What an amazing epic. I cant even count how many times Ive heard stories of the cruci xion and resurrection, but the story can be made new again. It really doesnt matter what approach you use to reach a state of beginners mind, as long as youre able to get there. I know people who do it by saying dont know when confronted with a common idea. What is this in front of me? Dont know. What is this message Im hearing preached? Dont know. Who is the hero of this story, and why is he doing these things? Dont know. What is this religion Ive belonged to for all these years? Dont know. In that moment, youve wiped out your social conditioning, ego, schooling and other biases and opened yourself up to the joy of rediscovery. We can revive a sense of newness by reading old stories with fresh eyes. Its a pity to allow religious services, rites and stories to become tedious, dry, boring relics of the dusty past when they can be kept fresh and relevant. One key is to allow people, including young children, to make their own discoveries. If somebody has discovered something for you, then you havent discovered it at all. Having something handed to you and learning about it for yourself are two very different matters. Also, we can nd new ways to relate the importance of religious rituals and spiritual teachings. Encourage active participation from those who may not normally be included, since discovery often lies in direct, hands-on participation. Even a small gesture can be helpful. For example, if your house of worship uses candles, and the same person has been lighting those candles for the past decade, maybe ask a less active member (or even a visitor) to do it. The hands-on approach can help people learn interesting new things. In every case where Ive been offered a chance to take an active part in a service, Ive walked away with a newfound sense of appreciation. In terms of secular epics, some people participate in their favorite stories by joining fan groups. Theres also a whole literary subgenre of fan ction or fan c in which fans write new adventures and installments of stories, even for stories that ended long ago. If the author didnt write the ending you wouldve preferred, no problem. Write it yourself. Its a way of viewing the story from a different perspective. We can revive our own spiritual stories by looking for new ways to tell old stories, and becoming more directly involved. If youre bored by religion, perhaps theres a reason. Over-familiarity and a lack of participation might be to blame. Also, some people were never permitted to make spiritual discoveries for themselves. They were only offered secondhand information and then threatened with dire consequences for asking questions. But questions are always acceptable, and so is new spiritual discovery. Its never too late to make a new start. So maybe its time to rediscover a sense of wonder and awe about your own faith. Discovering things anew is always fascinating, whether youre enjoying the adventures of a ctional hero or the in nitely more exciting adventures of your own life.

From Staff Reports CHIPLEY The Fitzhugh & Essie D. Carter Education Foundation is pleased to announce the awarding of $40,000 in grants to Vernon High School and Chipley High School for the 2011-2012 school year. The funds were presented to representatives of Vernon and Chipley High Schools Tuesday during the April meeting of the Washington County School Board. The Trust was established by the late Fitzhugh and Essie D. Carter to supplement educational activities in our local high schools. A local board of directors was created in 2006 and has since managed and administered the million dollar trust fund in accordance with the wishes of the Carter Family. Longtime area educators and civic leaders, Mr. & Mrs. Carter wanted to see the fruits of their labor utilized to promote some very unique aspects of our education system. The terms of the trust specify the primary uses are to supplement, vocational agriculture, English, drama, libraries and minor sports. Each year both area high schools submit grant requests to the trust. This year the trust was able to award a total of $40,000 to the Vernon and Chipley High School agriculture, English, library and sports programs. All grant requests are reviewed and recommended by a select committee consisting of teachers and advisory council members from each High School.
