By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Site Selection Committee members, along with school board members and city residents, met Thursday to discuss the location on which a new Kate M. Smith Elementary School might one day be built. Only two members of the veperson committee were able to attend Thursdays meeting, but Superintendent Joe Taylor said he would poll the other members next week so the Washington County School Board can approve the site selection at the Jan. 15 meeting. Theres nothing new here, this has been a 20-year process, Taylor said of the plans for a new elementary school. The district is looking at a 22-plus acre site off South Boulevard on which to build a new elementary campus. The district owns the South Boulevard site as well as the property on which the current elementary school sits, and the choice the site committee is facing boils down to whether or not to build the new campus at the same location where the current Kate Smith Elementary School is located, or move to another site entirely. The two members present, as well as most of the audience, favored building the new elementary school on a different site than where the current school is located. We are looking at a two-year or three-year construction cycle, Taylor said, Which would mean that for two years or more you would have construction going on right there on campus while also having classes, if we chose to build on the current location. Having construction going on while trying to hold classes Special to the News Matthew Orwatt, Washington Countys IFAS/UF horticulturist, will be the guest speaker at the January meeting of Chipley Garden Club. Orwatt will speak on New Farming Practices in Florida. Plans for celebrating Florida Arbor Day and the annual English Tea project also will be discussed. The meeting, will begin at 10:30 a.m. Jan. 9 at the home of Linda and Ray Pigott at 1023 U.S. 90 E. in Chipley. Lunch will be served following the meeting.

If you did, perhaps one of your resolutions was to be kinder to others. If so, thats wonderful. But dont forget to be kind to yourself, as well. Many people treat themselves in ways that would be considered scandalous if applied to others. Do you honestly expect other people to work themselves half to death, accept blame for things that arent their fault, single-handedly accomplish tasks that should be delegated to multiple people, solve everyone elses problems and never get a single moment to themselves? Of course, you dont. So why have similarly unrealistic expectations of yourself? Someone I knew once suffered a serious injury but was horri ed by the idea of allowing others to take care of him. One day, he had a massive hemorrhage. Dont worry about me, he insisted. Im doing ne! Had he not been physically dragged to the hospital, he wouldve politely bled to death. Sometimes, we can take the need to not impose upon others too far. Be good to yourself. Remember its okay to accept help sometimes. If you feel youve been bearing the weight of the world on your shoulders, ask yourself why. Have you conditioned others to believe youre some kind of magical being responsible for solving everyones problems? If so, its okay to let people gure out things for themselves sometimes. This includes kids. Children who have an adult swooping in to x every little problem often develop poor coping skills. Theyll still be expecting someone else to solve their problems well after they reach adulthood. Avoid playing the martyr. If you nd yourself constantly whining about the sacri ces you make, theres a simple solution: Stop sacri cing. The martyr complex seeking to impress others with woeful tales of self-sacri ce is more widespread than many people realize. Its psychologically similar to people who live through their kids. Having no lives of their own, they vampirize every aspect of their childrens lives. Professional martyrs, also having no lives of their own, manufacture their own problems and then invite everyone to a big pity party afterward. Sure, they give up a lot for others. And you can bet that theyll never let others forget it, either. Under the guise of dedication, theyre actually practicing an extreme form of sel shness, expecting applause (and worse yet, guilt from others) for even the smallest act of so-called duty or sacri ce. People who really do practice duty and sacri ce dont go around boasting about it. Some people make New Years resolutions to change their physical health while disregarding their psychological, intellectual, moral and spiritual health. You dont have to develop the body of an Olympic gold medalist in order to make a bene cial change in your life. There are improvements that dont involve dropping a pants size. If youre interested in spirituality, perhaps its time to take your spirituality a step further. What can you do to better yourself spiritually? How can you make yourself more emotionally healthy? How can you be more ethical? What new things will you learn this year? One fun way to enter a new year is to do something that you normally wouldnt. Step out on a limb and try something new, something out of character. Whatever you do to usher in the new year, have a good time with it. If youve been driving yourself too hard, relax. You dont have to take on the problems of the entire world, or even your entire family. Dont be a martyr. Above all, resolve to have some fun this year. Youll feel better for it. Dont forget that the new year also gives you a fresh opportunity to start sending in your regional religious news. If your events arent announced in the paper, its probably because you didnt send them in. Nobody will know about your events if you dont announce them. Be sure to send in news of your local events so everyone gets a chance to hear about them. E-mail church news items to rseyler@chipleypaper.com.

Notice to Professional Consultants Chipley Sidewalk Enhancement Project FPID No. 425739-1-58-01 City of Chipley, Florida The City of Chipley, Florida anticipates seeking professional consultant services for Construction Engineering Inspection on the construction of sidewalk along East Boulevard, Pecan Street, and Orange Street from South Boulevard to U.S. 90 in Chipley, Florida. The average length of each segment is approximately .57 miles with a combined project total of 1.71 miles. Consideration will be given to only those firms that are qualified pursuant to law and that have been prequalified by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) in accordance with Rule Chapter 14-75, Florida Administrative Code to perform the indicated Type(s) of Work. Work Types: 10.1-Rdwy Construction Engineering Inspection Response Deadline:Feb 1, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. local time Selection Date: February 12, 2013 at 6:00 p.m. local time CONSULTANT ELIGIBILITY: It is a basic tenet of the Citys contracting program that contracts are procured in a fair, open, and competitive manner. By submitting a Letter of Response, the Consultant certifies that they are in compliance with FDOT Directive No. 375-030-006. This directive is available on FDOTs Web Site. In addition to the restrictions identified in Directive No. 375-030-006, please be advised of the following prohibition: A consultant firm or its affiliate who was the Designer or Engineer of Record is precluded from bidding on the same project as the construction contractor, or as a member of the construction contractors team (subcontractor). FEDERAL DEBARMENT: This project is federally funded with assistance from the Florida Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration(FHWA). By submitting a Letter of Response, the consultant certifies that no principal (which includes officers, directors, or executives) is presently suspended, proposed for debarment, declared ineligible or voluntarily excluded from participation on this transaction by any Federal Department or Agency. E-VERIFY: The Vendor/Contractor shall utilize the U.S. Department of Homeland would be distracting, said Lesa Burdeshaw, principal at Kate M. Smith Elemen tary School. Another issue with the current site is that the campus is bisected by a city street, Taylor said. We have talked to the city about closing that road, and there are utilities there that the city would have need to maintain ac cess to. Taylor said having a city street run through a campus is something the Department of Education frowns on. The 22-acre site off South Boulevard stretches to Brickyard Boulevard and is separated from that street by a drainage area. There is no construction on the property, but the water utilities are in place, Taylor said. Another prob lem with the current site is the infrastructure under the school is 60 years old, he said. With the new loca tion, all the water and sew age plumbing would also be new. The district is trying to get a site located and a package prepared so the project can be presented to the Special Facilities Construction Account Committee in Tallahassee in August. If the project can be approved in August by the state, then it is pos sible the school could be considered for state fund ing beginning as early as 2014. This is a long-term project, but we have to get the process started, Tay lor said. Currently there are two Special Facilities projects in line ahead of Washington County School District that have been approved by the state for funding a $49 million and a $36 million project. If we can get approved, and if no other schools are out there planning a proj ect, we could be number three in line, Taylor said. Taylor said the elemen tary school is projected to cost about $20 million. Once the school board approves a site for the new school, the next step will be to get an architects drawing for the project. Well probably start ad vertising for an architects services in the next two weeks or so, Taylor said. SITE from page A1RANDAL SEYLE R | The News The proposed site for the new elementary school is seen in this aerial map, presented to the site selection committee on Thursday at the Washington County School District administration building board room in Chipley. The property is northeast of the Chipley High School and Roulhac Middle School campuses and stretches between Brickyard Road at the south end of the property and South Boulevard at the north end. Humanity Wash ington County chapter, and the Habitat For Hu manity Thrift Store was closed Thursday in his memory. When I rst met him, he was Col. Yates, Page said. It took a while be fore he let you into his other side. Survivors include his wife of 57 years, Becky Yates of Chipley; three sons, Steve Yates and wife, Lisa, of Chipley, Todd Yates of Leander, Texas, and Mark Yates and wife, Alison, of Lynn Haven; one sister, Edwina Showers of Chipley; nine grandchildren and two great-grand children. Memorial ser vices were held at the First Bap tist Church in Chipley with the Rev. Michael Orr ofciating. We will miss him in Kiwanis Club, Page said. We made him an honorary lifetime member when his health got to where he couldnt attend meetings. I think his service and what he meant to the Kiwanis Club was evident by the number of Kiwan ians at the service today, Page said. There were a bunch of us there. CHARLES E.
