Mayor denies wrongdoing Report: Cain suspended for falsifying report By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Chipley Mayor Linda Cain denied falsifying Florida Department of Correction records in a news conference Friday morning at Chipley City Hall. There was no intent on my part to falsify the reports in question. In the course of the investigation, I answered each question posed to me the only way I knew, honestly and truthfully, Cain said in a prepared statement. My friends know thats who I am. I cannot account for the interpretation of the answers given. Cain said she intends to seek re-election as mayor. I look forward to continuing my service to the city of Chipley, its employees and its citizens, she said. Over the past 24 years, I have strived to do what is best for Chipley, and to serve the city with honesty and integrity. I will continue to do so. Cain received a 80-hour suspension from her job with the Florida Department of Correction in Jackson County for, among other things, falsi cation of reports or records, conduct which violates state statute and failure to answer truthfully questions related to the performance of ofcial duties, according to a DOC report released April 27. The ndings of the report were said to be sustained by the DOC Of ce of the Inspector Generals administrative investigation report and the addendum report. The report details an investigation into misdeeds at Jackson Correctional Institution in Malone uncovered an affair between the LINDA CAIN CATHRINE LAMB | The News The Infant of Prague Council 10513 of the Knights of Columbus, representing membership from both Washington and Holmes counties, donated $4,500 to ARC of Washington and Holmes County on Tuesday. Attending were, from left, Mike DeRuntz, grand knight; Dallas Simmons, inside guard; Don McElwzin, trustee; Sandy Pritchard, ARC director; Al Holzscnuh and Donald J. Bush, deputy grand knights. Harmon seeks seat in District 5 From Staff Reports CHIPLEY John Harmon announced his candidacy for the District 5 position on the Washington County Board of Commissioners on Thursday. A lifelong resident of Washington County, Harmon said he has deep family ties to the Orange Hill area, through Oscar Harmon. He is president of H & R Construction and is an avid farmer. Harmon said he cares about the little man. Like a farmer, I want to sustain positive growth for District 5 and Washington County as a whole, Harmon said in a news release. I plan to use tools available on the county and state level to attract companies to our area. It is no secret we are ripe for development, I want to make sure its the type of people want, paying livable wages and shortening commutes. Ultimately this will keep more tax revenue and business dollars within our county, while lessening travel expenses on commuters, Harmon said. A county the size of Washington County, with a 10.9 percent unemployment rate, needs at least one more major employer to move within our county, Harmon said. Land abatement, tax cuts, an eager work force are all incentives for employers to relocate here, he said, and House Bill 7087 and HB 7029 will reinforce county initiative on the state level. I started work at a young age on the family farm with my father, Joseph Harmon, a World Caryville joins WCHD against candyavored tobacco By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com CARYVILLE Representatives from the Washington County Health Department and volunteers from Tobacco Free Washington County visited the Town of Caryville during their regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, May 8 to pass a resolution disagreeing on the local sale of candyavored tobacco targeting youth in Caryville. Guest speaker and volunteer for Tobacco Free Washington County Milton Brown came before the council to answer any questions and address any concerns the council may have about the resolution. Weve got a small town and smoking is bad but imagine the revenue that it would be taking away from us, said Chairman Henry Chambers. Brown assured that it wasnt a law that was being passed, just a request that the local convenient store not sale candyavored tobacco. This is just requesting that the store not sale candyavored tobacco, excluding menthol, which is blatantly targeting our youth towards tobacco products, Brown said. This is just a resolution saying you disagree with what theyre doing. Town Attorney Lyndia Spears concurred that it wasnt a law-binding contract, just a request. It wont prevent them from selling it, its just the town saying they disagree with these tobacco companies targeting children, Spears said. The Town approved of the resolution. Chambers then informed the council that there was a light out at the basketball court and that Gulf Power would need to be noti ed to see about replacing it. Spears informed the council that they have yet to hear back from Gulf Power. During the previous meeting April 10, Spears reported 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 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, said Caryville Town Attorney Lyndia Spears. 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 that Gulf Power estimated an amount by the stumps left on their land, but instead of charging the town with the amount they would usually receive for their trees from their contractor, which wouldve been estimated at over $9,000 and decided to go with what the town would have received, which is $5,272.

City Council hears harassment complaint By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Police harass ment of the black commu nity needs to stop, a Chi pley resident told the City Council on Tuesday. For some reason, there is a problem between our community and the police, Dorothy Harper said. She said drivers are being pulled over by Chipley police when they are coming home from working on the night shift and said it was proling. One lady got pulled over, taken out of her car and her car searched, Harper said. Im glad that wasnt me, because Id be in jail. No one is going to search my car. Harper said some people are afraid to speak to the council about the police. Im glad Chief (Kevin) Crews is here, maybe he can talk to his ofcers, Harper said. The police have other things to do be sides harassing people. Harper said the only trouble she had ever had with the law was the occa sional speeding ticket. She said another young person driving through the neighborhood was also pulled over for no apparent reason. People shouldnt have to be living like that. Mayor Pro-Tem Karen Rustin asked Harper to sit down with Crews and City Administrator Dan Miner to discuss the problem. Mayor Linda Cain was not in attendance at Tues days meeting. Following Harpers ad dress to the council, Rustin adjourned the meeting. Council Member Roger Sloan objected to the sudden adjournment. I have some thing I want to say, Sloan said. Ive already adjourned the meeting, Rustin replied. Rustin asked at the start of the meeting if any of the council members wanted to be added to the agenda. The mayor usually asks each council member if they have something they want to say before adjourn ing, Sloan said. Im not the mayor, Rustin replied. Im the mayor pro-tem. War II vet, and my eight siblings, Harmon said. I graduated Chipley High and then went to Santa Fe Community College in Gainesville. A father and no stranger to hard work, I bring dedication, patience, and the business savvy (need ed) to be an effective problem solver, Harmon said. A part of problem-solving is transparency in this way you can gain as much feedback from citizens as possible. Coupled with public partici pation in the civic process, this will allow for bet ter service to all of the citizens of Washington County, he said. I know our triumphs, I know our customs and I know our determination. Lets work together. For more information, email Harmon at John_ Harmon63@yahoo.com or visit facebook at John Harmon(ElectJHarmon). HARMON from page A1 TOBACCO from page A1 Since the town council agreed that they didnt authorize for the contrac tor to cut down the trees, the council approved to pursue only paying half of the $5,272, which is $2,686. The council is also 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, said Spears. It would be best at this point to minimize the damages as much as possible. She said she spoke with the repre sentative and the representative said that he would present it to his supe riors and he would contact her with a reply. Also during the last meeting the Town approved of the request of own er of Parons Produce at Caryville Flee Market, Paron Beeco, to pay half of the $250 to place a light pole at the ee market so they could have power. Were still willing to pay half if you pay the other half, Chambers said. Beeco informed the council that he was having trouble getting the other three venders to pay their portion. They just dont seem to under stand where the moneys going and I cant get them to understand its so that we can have electricity at the ee market, said Beeco. So as soon as I can get them to give me the money Ill be down here to pay. Chamber said that the offer still stands because the request has already been approved and they await payment. Resident Bobby Hipburn was present to inform the council that his water bill had drastically spiked the previous month and that the records would indicate that he normally has the minimum required payment every month. We checked and there isnt a leak, we just think it might be because its an old meter skipping, Hipburn said. I just want you to look into it and credit me the extra money on the next bill. The council agreed to credit Hip burns account for the next billing cycle. The next regularly scheduled meet ing is scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 12 at the Caryville Town Hall. Local A2 | Washington County News Saturday, May 12, 2012 warden and a nurse, doctored, delet ed and shredded reports, negligent care of inmates, lies to investigators, and a host of other problems. The investigation ultimately led to the termination of Warden Ted Jeter and Assistant Warden Carolann Bracewell. I have been told by the Depart ment of Corrections that this unfortu nate situation is behind us and we are moving forward. I am still proudly em ployed with the Department of Cor rections and look forward to returning to work on May 18, Cain said in her statement. Cain, a senior health services ad ministrator with the DOC, submitted two incident reports that were found not to have been created on her work station but on Bracewells work sta tion, according to the report. The report states that Cain signed both of the incident reports on July 25-26, 2011, the dates typed on the re ports. Jeters signature and handwrit ten dates were the same as Cains, indicating the reports were reviewed by Jeter the same day they were cre ated by Cain. According to the investigation re port, it was determined that the re ports were not created until Aug. 11, 2011, it was not possible for Health Service Administrator Cain to have written and signed, nor Warden Jeter to have reviewed and signed, copies of the reports prior to that date. The report states Cain falsied re ports by providing false information and a false date on an incident report, that she knowingly submitted inaccu rate or untruthful information when she provided false information and a false date on the incident report, that her conduct violates state statute due to her falsifying a report and submit ting inaccurate information on an ofcial document, and for conduct unbecoming for committing the afore mentioned violations. On July 25-26, 2011, I prepared, dated, and signed two incident re ports regarding health issues of two inmates, Cain said in her statement. The information I provided in the reports was correct and accurate to the best of my knowledge. These re ports were sent to the wardens ofce where they were processed. When I signed the completed reports, I used the date they were originally created by me. The information contained in the wardens reports was the same as prepared by me. No changes had been made. The reports reected the situa tion as I reported on July 25-26, 2011. According to the addendum inves tigation report, an allegation that Cain failed to answer truthfully questions related to the performance of ofcial duties was sustained, based on the information gathered during this fol low-up investigation. On April 13, Cain said in a sworn in terview conducted by Inspector Louis Cordova, that she was instructed by Jeter to submit the incident report about the construction of medical bins, while in her initial interview with inspectors, Cain said she was not di rected by anybody to submit the inci dent report related to construction of medical bins. Jeter instructed Cain to write the information in the incident report about a neurological protocol form be ing absent. Cain said the form was not in the bins, although it was in the le book and could have been copied, ac cording to the report. Cain said neither Jeter nor Brace well instructed her on what to say dur ing an interview. According to the report, problems began in July 2011 when a nurse, Tara West, allegedly failed to provide prop er medical care for an inmate. The inmate ultimately was taken to a hos pital to be treated. However, details of the inmates medical issue and the result of the alleged failure to provide proper care are not public record and have not been released by the DOC. A second inmate was given negli gent care by nurses Chastity Sandusky, Mary Tanner, Mark Starkey and Sheila Hines, according to the report. It was during and shortly after these incidents that reports about the negligent care began disappearing, being deleted and routed outside the normal channels straight to Jeter and Bracewell in order to keep certain em ployees out of the loop, the report states. Reports also were shredded, according to the report. An investigation into the initial negligent care problems recommend ed the prisons physician, Dr. Eong Andem, be terminated. The doctor is no longer employed by the prison, al though DOC could not say whether he was terminated or resigned. Along with the termination of Brace well and Jeter and the suspension of Cain, Lt. Lisa Lawrence was suspend ed for 56 hours, and Capt. Eddie Jones was suspended for 56 hours. Florida Freedom Newspapers S. Brady Calhoun contributed to this report. MAYOR from page A1

Theres a great deal to be said for the benets of physical exercise. Were often reminded about the importance of staying physically t, especially as we begin aging. There are also mental exercises designed to keep the mind sharp. But what about spiritual exercises? Many religious traditions offer spiritual exercises, such as meditation, chanting, prayers, devotions or the reading of sacred texts. Just as physical exercise builds up the body, spiritual exercises can fortify the soul. One spiritual exercise that continues to grow in popularity is centering prayer. Centering prayer is part of the Christian contemplative tradition, but people of other faiths have found it useful, as well. Some people equate meditation with Eastern religious traditions, not realizing that Christians have used it for centuries as a spiritual practice. Spiritual exercises are nothing new. The spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola, for instance, were composed in the 1500s and are still in use today. Heres a rather over-simplied explanation of centering prayer: Select a special word of your own choosing. Dont tell anyone what it is, but keep it as your own private word. This word represents your desire to be open to the presence of the Divine. Some people choose a sacred name (Jesus, God and so forth), while others choose words that hold spiritual meaning for them (Love, Holiness, Yes, Silence, Spirit, Light etc). It can be any word you like. Sit comfortably in a relaxed position, with the spine erect. Close your eyes, relax deeply, and feel yourself in the holy presence. Dont speak. Remain immersed in silence. Many people spend a great deal of time talking during prayer, but do very little actual listening. Stay open to God. If thoughts come, and they will, use your secret word. Dont speak it aloud, but merely think it. That word is your anchor, centering you once again in Gods presence. One thing I found helpful during a centering prayer session was being advised that thoughts are like toy boats passing beneath a bridge. Let them oat past. It would be absurd to jump off the bridge and try to ride a toy boat, and its just as absurd to get attached to passing thoughts. The thought that your left elbow itches, that you have a meeting tomorrow morning, or that you could really go for a Caesar salad may very well oat by, but you dont have to jump on board. Your connection to God is whats important here, not the random thoughts. Part of developing a spiritual exercise is to do it intentionally. After all, one doesnt develop a physical exercise plan by doing things completely at random. You wouldnt lift a couple of weights and then haphazardly do a pushup, followed by some jumping jacks. Youd develop an orderly and specic plan and stick to it, at least if you wanted to see actual results. Think about what kind of spiritual exercises you might nd meaningful. It could involve setting aside a special time to read scripture, agreeing to pray at a certain time of the day, or just taking some time out to be mindful of spiritual things. I know someone who turned a simple observation of the sun into a spiritual exercise. He would step outside at dawn, noon and sundown every day and meditate upon the suns travels across the sky. His thoughts naturally turned toward the unseen force behind the suns movements. Sometimes, spirituality can be as simple as directing ones attention to the commonplace. Thats one of the reasons breathing exercises are popular in several different religious traditions. The sun above us, or our very breath, are nothing short of miraculous. Yet, were so busy running around worrying about trivia that we scarcely notice them. We take them for granted. Nearly anything youre worrying about at the moment pales in comparison to the existence of your breath, your heartbeat, or even the sun. If you think your breath isnt worth paying attention to, just imagine where youd be without it. So even being mindful of the very air youre taking in can constitute a spiritual exercise. Sometimes, physical movement can be incorporated into spiritual exercises. Many people have discovered the benets of sacred dance, while others have found refuge in the spiritual aspects of yoga, Tai Chi, Falun Dafa, qigong and other systems. Many of these practices have their roots in Eastern culture, but are now widely practiced across the U.S. One may merely regard them as a set of physical movements, but quite a few people also reap spiritual benets from them. Another spiritual exercise is saying novena prayers. A novena is a nine-day prayer cycle. Its an interesting exercise, because it forces one to actually think about praying in a sequence. Its not a one-time prayer that one walks away from and forgets. The idea is to return to it for nine consecutive days. Many people associate novenas with Catholicism, but anyone can pray them. There are many different types of pre-written novena prayers to choose from, such as the Novena to the Holy Ghost or the All Souls Novena. These prayers can easily be found online. Much like developing a physical exercise routine, it may take a bit of time to pin down exactly what you wish to achieve and then nd a set of exercises that will help toward that goal. But many people have found spiritual exercises helpful. Just as nobody wants physical muscles to atrophy, getting out of shape spiritually isnt a good idea, either. Like physical exercise, one can start at any point. Millions of Americans came to realize that they didnt have to be as physically t as the late Jack LaLanne in order to exercise with him on television. Whatever your physical or spiritual level may be, theres always a chance to expand capabilities and push toward new growth. So the next time youre out getting a little exercise, dont forget to get some exercise for the spirit, as well. POSTMASTER: Send address change to: Washington County News P.
