Saturday, AUGUST 25 2012 Volume 89, Number 38 WEEKEND Washington County News And Mobile Too! Connect With Us 24/7 Fire station plans put on hold By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com WAUSAU A resident asked the Wausau Town Council for help in accessing her property on Tuesday. Sharon Fowler owns a lot in Wausau that has no access road to allow her to drive onto the property. I have no access, and the only thing left to do is ask for approval of a driveway down the city roadway, she said. Fowler said she wanted access to her property from Monroe Street. There is a platted but undeveloped unnamed street that runs into her property, and she asked if the city could do anything with the road. The citys Comprehensive Plan says that to open a street, it has to be according to the current standards, Mayor Roger Hagan said. In that case, I think youd have to have the road engineered, planned and paved, and that is an expensive proposition. Hagan estimated the cost of paving a roadway to Fowlers property at $100,000. However, if you build it, well be happy to name it Fowler Road, Hagan said, jokingly. I cant afford anything like that, Fowler said. The council studied plats and surveys of Fowlers land. Hagan said his concern with the town granting her access via city rightof-way is that future owners of the property might not have access to the property unless a permanent solution is found.

Arrested was Phil Potter Jr. of Chipley, on charges of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. Potter was out of jail on bond for a previous charge of selling crack cocaine, according to a Chipley Police Department report. Also arrested was Carlon Smith, who police say ed the residence. Smith was arrested on charges of providing false identi cation to law enforcement. Weve worked several cases like this over the years, and its always amazing the steps the dealers will take to facilitate drug deals, said Chipley Police Chief Kevin Crews.

If you were suddenly handed $10 and told to donate it to any charitable organization in the world, who would you give it to? Many people have causes that are close to their hearts. Some might choose to donate their $10 to a food program, while others would donate it to a disaster relief agency, museum, medical organization, hospice, childrens charity, library, environmental fund or animal shelter. Its easy to think of a cause, whether local or global, that could use a small donation. The trick, though, is getting that $10. As nice as it would be to have somebody walk up and randomly give us cash, the chances of that happening are pretty slim. So, well have to rely on ourselves to come up with the funds. Most of us probably have $10 to spare. If you dont have that amount right now, dont worry. If you can just hold back one dollar a week, youll eventually have $10 that you can use to help make the world a better place. Ten dollars doesnt sound like much in todays economy. What good is a $10 donation, anyway? Why would anybody waste their time with such a tri ing amount? Even a small donation can make a difference. I recently visited a food banks website to nd out how far $10 will go. Many food pantries have ongoing arrangements with local and national grocery chains, food producers and other groups that help them acquire food at a signi cantly discounted price. I learned that $10 can provide 20 meals for the hungry. Thats 20 people who will be eating because of a single donors generosity. So now that I know that, Im faced with a choice: I can blow 10 bucks on burgers, snacks, coffee or other little pleasures for myself, or feed 20 people. When thinking of it that way, spending money frivolously seems less appealing. Then again, Ive been through times when $10 would have been a godsend. I remember a time in my life when I frequently scanned the streets for loose change people dropped, because the change helped me buy marked-down food at a local grocery outlet. Ten dollars seemed like a lot of money back then. For you, today, it might still be a lot of money. In that case, hold on to it to feed your own family. Just consider making a small donation to a good cause when youre able. If you have Internet access, did you know you can, completely free of charge, help raise funds for charity? There are many click to donate websites both in the U.S. and abroad. Sponsors agree to donate a certain amount of money to charity for every click the website receives. Theres usually a button that reads, Click here to give or something similar. One well-known program of this type is thehungersite.com, and from there, you can also click to help homeless military veterans, people with autism, children needing health care, animal shelters and more. Click every day, and you can easily help charities without spending a dime. Another useful online resource is charitynavigator.org, which sorts out good charities from bad for those who are considering making nancial contributions. If you cant donate money, consider donating time. A few hours a week can really help. At the very least, you could help spread the word about your favorite charity, letting people know about the good work its doing. If youre religious, perhaps your religious group operates a charity. There are many faith-based charities in the world, as well as secular ones. Almost all religions promote the spiritual and practical bene ts of charity. Even if youre not religious, there are still obvious bene ts to charitable giving, as well as non-religious organizations that could use your help. So the next time you get paid, take the $10 challenge. Round up $10 and donate that sum to any charity you like. If you cant donate money, consider donating time. Keep in mind that we have several ne charities right here in our immediate area. Or, if you wish to give to a nationwide or international organization, do it. Give to a literacy program, a human rights organization, a volunteer re department, a hospital or anything else you think will help. If everybody in our local area would give just $10 to charity, the citizens of Washington and Holmes counties could do a great deal to help improve other peoples lives. Gillman family reunion WESTVILLE The Gillman Family Reunion will be held today in the fellowship hall at Leonia Baptist Church. The church is located at 1124 Gillman Road in Westville. The reunion is always held on the last Saturday in August and lunch will be served at noon. For more information, call Sylvia Glover at 956-2877 or Teresa Johnson at 956-2810.

Local Washington County News | A3 Saturday, August 25, 2012 Other students involved in the program received cookbooks with healthy entrees they can prepare with their parents help. Chamber Executive Director Ted Everett said the purpose of the program is to teach children and their parents the importance of exercise and good nutrition. Theres no better way to keep a kid moving than a bicycle, Everett said, jokingly. Childhood obesity is a nationwide epidemic, and Washington County has higher than average rates of heart disease and of tobacco use, said NFCH President/CEO Patrick Schlenker. The population of Washington County is 25,109. According to state statistics, Washington County is 35 percent obese, compared to the state average of 27 percent. The county also ranks higher in cancer, diabetes and strokes, according to the state Of ce of Vital Statistics. In the U.S., one in three children is overweight, and 12.5 million kids (or 17 percent) ages 2-19 are obese. The We Can! program introduces ways to enhance childrens activity and nutrition and is a science-based national education program developed by the National Institutes of Health, designed to help children ages 8-13 stay at a healthy weight through improving food choices, increasing physical activity and reducing screen time. The next step with the Washington County We Can! program is for the 40 parents who signed up for the program to attend three 90-minute training sessions in the next year, where they will learn about nutritional guidelines and fun activities for children. The training sessions will be offered quarterly, said NCHF Chief Nursing Of cer Joanie Beard. This was the rst year for the hospital to participate in the We Can! program, but Beard said the plan is to follow these fourthand fth-grade students through their school career to see how their healthy lifestyles are maintained. Next year a new group of We Can! students and parents will be trained, Beard said.

The council agreed tentatively to allow Fowler access to her property using the city right-of-way, pending review by the city attorney, Gerald Holley. Engineer Charley Cotton updated the city on projects and recommended the city hold off applying for a grant to build a re station until next year. The deadline to have everything needed for the application, including architects plans, is October. Cotton said because the city doesnt have an architect or architecture plans, it is unlikely the city could have a grant packet put together in time for this years grant cycle. Next year also starts a new 10year cycle for CDBG, Cotton said. Cotton also suggested the town consider seeking funding for a new water tower to improve the citys water pressure. City Clerk Margaret Riley reported that the $25,000 owed the city for past due water bills is now down to $18,000. She also said the mayor is in negotiations with Washington County to provide code enforcement services for the city. You can see in some places in Chipley where code enforcement has made a huge difference, Hagan said. Its a little controversial, but if we can get someone with some expertise it can work. I just want to make sure we do everything to the letter of the law. When it was nally opened, Schlenker learned that the Chipley hospital was listed at 2,969 in the magazines top 5,000 businesses in the U.S. That is out of about 5.2 million U.S. businesses, Schlenker said. The Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth over a four-year period. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by the rst week of the starting calendar year and therefore able to show four full calendar years of sales. The 2012 list is on the magazines website, www.inc.com. Each year, over 676,000 new business are registered, Schlenker said. For the past 30 years, the organization Inc. has recognized the top 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in America. As an Inc. 5000 honoree, Northwest Florida Community Hospital now shares a pedigree with Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Jamba Juice, Timberland, Clif Bar, Pandora, Patagonia, Oracle and other notable alumni, Inc. Magazine Editor In Chief Eric Schurenberg wrote in the noti cation letter. In addition to Northwest Florida Community Hospital, the 2012 list added such powerhouses as Publix Supermarkets, CDW, Levi Strauss and a little social media company called Facebook. Welcome to a very exclusive club. To me that is almost an impossible achievement, Schlenker said. It took a lot of folks for us to receive that honor. We have a very dedicated, hardworking team. Schlenker said the hospitals board, physicians, 270 associates and a very dedicated community have worked together to make NFCH a success. You have to have community support. Without that, none of this would be possible. The Washington County Chamber of Commerce is also a great supporter of NFCH, he said. We have been very blessed. The entry on NFCH shows that the hospital has posted a 3-year growth of 74 percent and reported 2011 revenue of $62.4 million. According to the magazine, the hospital had $35.9 million in 2008 revenue and has added 95 jobs in the previous three years. The hospital was founded in 1951 and has 212 employees. NFCH ranks 243 in the health industry list, according to the magazine. NFCH is a 59-bed health care facility that includes a 25-bed critical access hospital, a 34-bed long-term care facility and a home health agency. It offers a wide range of services, including family medicine, surgery, podiatry, cardiology, sleep studies, counseling and lab services. The 2012 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2008 to 2011, according to the website inc.com. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2008. They had to be U.S.based, privately held, for pro t and independent not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies as of December 31, 2011. Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired. The minimum revenue required for 2008 is $100,000; the minimum for 2011 is $2 million. Companies on the Inc. 5,000 are featured in Inc.s September issue. We are so proud and honored to have been recognized as one of their fastest-growing private companies, Schlenker said. In short, as a small rural hospital, we have been blessed and will be forever grateful for that, Schlenker said. Its de nitely another great day in Washington County where thousands live like millions wish they could. On Wednesday, the Chipley Police Departments K-9 Unit worked in conjunction with the United States Postal Service Inspectors and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement on a narcotics investigation. The investigation began with the postal inspector intercepting a suspicious package from Washington state destined to a Chipley resident. A controlled delivery was made of the package to a residence on Fifth Avenue. Then police contacted the recipient, and a search of the package revealed several ounces of high-grade marijuana, according to a police report. Police said at the time investigators entered the property, a man identied as Smith ed out the rear door of the residence. They said they encountered Smith about a block away from the residence. Please call the Chipley Police Department with any tips concerning illegal narcotics at 638-6310.
