And Mobile Too! Connect With Us 24/7 By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The Chipley City Council approved a resolution allowing for closing roads for parades and heard a report on upcoming sidewalk projects during the Dec. 11 meeting at City Hall. Resolution 13-04 determines the temporary closure of roads is necessary for special events and authorizes the appropriate administrative of cials to apply to the Department of Transportation for approval of the temporary road closures. This resolution is for the parades we hold each year, City Administrator Dan Miner said. This is necessary for us to hold our various parades, such as the Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade, Watermelon Festival and Homecoming. The council also heard and approved the second and nal reading of an ordinance to abandon a portion of a public alley behind the Piggly Wiggly. Were not losing any property, and we are getting land on the other side to make up for this, Mayor Linda Cain said. Miner told the council members a list of several future sidewalk projects had been approved by the Department of Transportation and several Chipley projects have been slated for funding with construction set for 2015. It is something that is in the future, but it is good that we have been approved and are moving forward. The FDOT also is advertising in December and January for $760,465 sidewalk project in Chipley including sidewalks along East Boulevard, Pecan Street and Orange Street from South Boulevard to U.S. 90, according to Miners report to the council.

The Christmas story never will change. The message of hope, joy and love still is offered today. Journey to the Manger looks at this meaning on a journey through time. The event is free, and the public is invited to attend. BOCC to meet Tuesday CHIPLEY The Washington County Board of County Commissioners will meet at 9 a.m. Tuesday. The board meets in the commission board room at the County Annex, 1331 South Blvd., in Chipley. FUMC presents Christmas Cantata Special to The News CHIPLEY The First United Methodist Church of Chipley Sanctuary Choir will present a Christmas Cantata at 6 p.m. today and again at 11 a.m. Sunday during the worship service. A teenage girl giving birth in a stable. A newborn baby cradled in a feeding trough. A choir of angels glorifying God in the midnight sky. Dignitaries from a far-off country worshiping the King of all kings. These familiar sounds and images express for us the wonder of Christmas, the amazing story of how our God became one of us. Noel and Alleluia is about these sounds and images, but just as Christ is uniquely re-expressed in each life He transforms, the wonder of Christmas is here uniquely expressed through a beautiful blend of the familiar and the fresh. Creator and arranger Tom Fettke has drawn together traditional carols with new songs by some of the Churchs nest living artists and songwriters: Michael W. Smith (Sing Noel, Sing Hallelujah and All Is Well) Shannon Wexelberg (Love Came for Me) and Casting Crowns (I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day). The result is a musical celebration for all. Our congregation will be lifted by the ever-colorful orchestrations of Russell Mauldin. Weaving together the entire work are the poignant and heartfelt narrations of Claire Cloninger. Dont miss this opportunity to invite your friends and family to enjoy the good news of the birth of Jesus Christ. The church is at 1285 Jackson Ave. For additional information, call 638-0010. These two performances are open to the community. The church invites all to come and worship. Dollar General eyes larger store By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The Chipley City Council heard plans of a new Dollar General during Tuesdays meeting. The company is looking to build a 12,480-square-foot market on U.S. 90 and would relocate the store from downtown Chipley to the new location. The new location will be bigger and will feature more groceries with up to 50 coolers, said Tom Hodges, who was representing Dollar General at the meeting. The council was asked to approve an application for abandonment of public property so the process of building the new store could begin. What this does is it allows the process to start, City Administrator Dan Miner said. It still has to go through planning and zoning, the whole nine yards. This is just necessary before they can begin. The council approved the application, but Mayor Linda Cain said she was unhappy to see the store move. Thats not a convenient as having a store right downtown, Cain said. And that means were going to have another empty building. The store would be across from Gulf Power on U.S. 90 East, Miner said. The project is called Teramore Development, which is requesting the abandonment of the 10th Street right-of-way as well as the 20-foot alley intersecting the 10th Street right-of-way. The new Dollar General store will be a hybrid between a regular store and the Dollar General Market, such as the one in Slocomb, Ala., Hodges said. Dollar General Corp., based in Goodlettsville, Tenn., is the nations largest small-box discount retailer, according to the companys website. Dollar General ranks among the largest retailers of top-quality, such as Procter & Gamble, Kimberly Clark, Unilever, Kelloggs, General Mills and Nabisco. Dollar General, which has 10,000 stores in 40 states and 11 distribution centers, posted $14.8 billion in sales according to the website.

Watch Night Service VERNON Unity Baptist Church, at 3274 River Road in Vernon will celebrate New Year with a watch night service at 7 p.m. Dec. 31. The guest speakers will be the Rev. Jonathan Taylor and the Rev. Allen English. COMMUNITY CALENDAR Have you heard about the Birth 2012 movement? Some people will be celebrating a planetary birthday on Dec. 22. The birth in this case refers to the birth of a new era for humanity, a time of worldwide spiritual awakening. There will be celebrations in our area, including one in Bay County at Unity of Panama City. The idea that humanity is moving toward a massive spiritual rebirth is hardly a new one, nor is it unique to the Birth 2012 movement. This idea has recurred at various points in history. There have been times during which signs of spiritual change were seemingly everywhere. Personally, Ive been noticing changes not only within religious groups, but among individuals from all walks of life. I recently received an e-mail from an old friend who feels that something major is happening in his life. Speci cally, hes experiencing a spiritual awakening. Then I randomly got a message from someone else whos undergoing major transformations and improvements in her life. Ive been getting reports of this nature in surprising numbers from people both in the U.S. and abroad. Whats more, Ive recently encountered teachings from several religious traditions that seem to indicate the presence of some sort of massive spiritual shift. These teachings might be stated in different ways, but one thing is clear: People are beginning to wake up. Perhaps youve noticed changes in your life. These changes can range from subtle to intense. Perhaps youre simply wishing that something would change in your life. If thats the case, this period of uctuation and growth may be a good time to make that change happen. It makes sense that people are anticipating spiritual rebirth, especially at this time of year. Soon, well be celebrating the winter solstice, after which well slowly be pushing toward warmer weather. Make no mistake, winter will remain with us for a while, with January and February still ahead. But following the solstice, well be edging slightly closer, day by day, toward spring and the blossoming of new life. Just as plants are now lying dormant in the soil, our hearts are sheltering the dormant seeds of something new and beautiful. The awakening of these owers, both of the literal and spiritual varieties, isnt far away. Its time to prepare ourselves for revival and new growth of the mind and spirit. Right now, many Christian denominations are observing Advent, a time of preparation for the Christmas season. Its not just preparation for giving presents, but a religious season of selfre ection. How are people preparing themselves spiritually to observe of the birth of Christ? People of other religions are also preparing for (or currently celebrating) various holidays. These, too, involve intense preparation and re ection. If youre in the process of making holiday preparations, stop for a moment and ask yourself what youre actually preparing for. As we approach Christmas, its a perfect time to turn our thoughts toward rebirth and renewal. At this time of year, Christians around the world joyously anticipate celebrating the incarnation of Jesus Christ. But there may also be another birth to celebrate: the spiritual rebirth within our own hearts. CHARITY OF THE WEEK The Water Project, Inc. 800 million people dont have access to clean drinking water. One out of 5 deaths worldwide is related to water issues. Poor water quality is linked to many different illnesses. Hospitals cant operate properly without access to clean water. Nutritious food cant be grown in unsafe water. When teachers and students get sick due to diseased water, schools cant remain open. Any thriving society depends upon access to water. Since 2006, The Water Project has been providing fresh water to people in areas devastated by unsafe water supplies. The next time you take a drink of clean water, think about those for whom access to drinkable water remains a daily struggle. The Water Project Inc. thewaterproject.org P.O.

Washington County School Board meeting for their efforts at the state Junior Beta Club convention in Orlando on Dec. 2. Among students attending the convention and winning awards were, from left, Austin Hallmark (third place, Battle of the Books), Olivia Cotton (third place, cross-stitching), Taylor Hammack (second place Recyclable Art), Matthew Spittler ( rst place, quilting), Callie Batey ( rst place, oil/acrylic painting). Also attending the convention but not pictured were Bryce Sasser, ShanaRay Shef eld (third place, Battle of the Books), Cannan Hall ( rst place, watercolor), Caleb Donaldson ( rst place, woodworking), and Marquez Brown, Tyreise Leblanc, Anthony Gatlin (third place, technology). Future projects include a sidewalk on Seventh Street from South Boulevard to U.S. 90. Design work for the project and construction is scheduled for 2015, according to the report. Also planned for 2015 is a sidewalk along U.S. 90 from the Washington County Agricultural Center to Dalton Street. Among other projects approved by the FDOT are sidewalks along Highway 77 from South Boulevard to the south entrance of Harrell Square and from the north entrance of Washington Square to Nadia Avenue, with engineering scheduled for 2014 and construction slated for 2017; a sidewalk on Sinclair Street from South Boulevard to Forrest Avenue, with engineering in 2014 and construction in 2015; and a sidewalk for Third Street from Pine Avenue to South Boulevard, also with engineering in 2014 and construction in 2015. Miner asked if the council would send a letter of thanks to DOT District 3 Secretary James Bar eld for his help in getting the sidewalk projects approved. The mayor asked Miner to write up the letter. I would like for all the council members to sign it, she said. The council also approved a special event application for the Early Learning Coalition of Northwest Florida to hold an event in Shivers Park from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 6. Chipley Resident Cheryl McCall also told the council her neighborhood is thankful for the Chipley Fire Department and the job they did responding to the re at 644 Fifth St. on Dec. 1. The home, which belongs to former City Councilman Roger Sloan, was destroyed in a morning blaze. They did a great job keeping the re from spreading, and they were complete professionals, McCall said, noting the re department is manned by volunteers. Not only did they ght the re until 10:30 in the morning, then they washed up the trucks and had them ready to ride in the Christmas parade, McCall said. She also noted the department had to borrow an aerial truck because the city does not have one. At some time, the city is going to have to look at getting a ladder truck, she said.

This theme for the 2013 Relay For Life is Race For a Cure. Relay for Life BRIEFS When I came back to Florida, it was to retire, and I didnt really see getting into this, Phillips said of his service on the town council. But I have really enjoyed it, it has been a learning experience. There was a reception Thursday for outgoing council members Hagan and Culbreth, and both were presented with plaques for their service to the community. Weve appreciated your 24 years of service, Councilman Dallas Carter told Hagan. Youve really been a good one. Hagan thanked the council for the recognition and welcomed the new council members, wishing them well in their time on the town council. We not only endured it, but we enjoyed it, Hagan said of his time serving Wausau. I was born and raised here, and if I was able to give back even a fraction of what the town has given me over the years, then I think I have accomplished something good.
