By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The Chipley City Council voted on Wednesday to take the rst step in seeking grant funding for repairing the citys aging waterlines and to expand the citys water system to south of Interstate 10. Meeting in a special session, the council heard a presentation from H. Douglas Bruce and Tom Bryant, consultants from the rm Doug Bruce & Associates of Tallahassee, who told the council members of the steps necessary to seek federal grants for waterline repairs. I had talked to Mayor (Linda) Cain about the needs of the city, and we understand you have an issue with unaccounted water, Bruce said. The Legislature has appropriated funds to address these types of issues. Bruce said the city could apply for grants and funding by using the services of a consulting rm at no cost to the city. The consulting rm would be paid a percentage of whatever grant monies eventually are secured, and the percentage is negotiated between the city and the consultants. The city would rst seek a planning grant of up to $300 for hiring consultants and engineers to come up with the necessary designs for improvements. The grants are typically 75-25 matching grants, Bruce said, which means the city would be responsible for $75,000 on a $300,000 grant. We dont have the money, but I would hate to see us miss the opportunity, said council member Karen Rustin. Resident and real estate broker Gary Hartman told the council that extending water service south of I-10 could mean economic growth for the citys interstate corridor.

It was one of many. Poor shooting, a lack of making good on secondchance opportunities, a wide disparity in fouls and a pair of surging South Walton scorers in the second half helped the Seahawks pull away for a 58-49 victory at The Lakeland Center. It was the rst state championship for South Walton (23-6). Chipley nished the season 23-5 in its rst appearance in a state title game and second trip to the Final Four. Sorey recorded her fourth foul on a Katie Logan shot with one second to play in the third quarter. Logan missed both attempts and Chipley led 39-35. Sorey, however, was relegated to the bench after scoring 14 points through three quarters and South Walton capitalized without the senior on the oor. She de nitely had a passion for us on defense and without her in it brought the level of intensity down, Chipley coach Heather Hingson said. She played really hard for us on defense. Casey Perot moved the Seahawks within two early in the fourth quarter. Mackenzie Perot scored a possession later to provide the rst tie of the game. Casey Perot then gave South Walton its rst lead, 41-39, a minute into the fourth. South Walton went on a 9-0 run to open the fourth quarter to turn a four-point de cit into a 44-39 lead with South Walton rallies past Chipley for title SCOTT WHEELER | The Lakeland Ledger Chipleys Ebony Williams reacts as South Waltons Tayler Menard, background, celebrates a state championship. By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Washington County Commissioners agreed Wednesday to help Greenhead Volunteer Fire Department purchase a used tanker/ retruck, but not without some debate over who would actually own the vehicle. The Board of County Commissioners held a special meeting to consider the purchase so the $55,000 retruck could be bought in a timely fashion. Fire Chief Jim Palmer told the commissioners the Greenhead department had put a binder on the truck and it was being held for them. Greenhead to buy re truck By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Getting RESTORE Act funds for local projects may take some effort, but it is possible that some of the federal money could nd its way to Washington County. Senior Planner Mike DeRuntz gave a presentation to the Washington County Board of County Commissioners Wednesday outlining the steps needed for the county to pursue recognition as an area impacted by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill of 2010. DeRuntz was given approval by the board to pursue the federal funds and prepare working on a grant proposal. Deepwater Horizon was the largest offshore oil spill in U.S. history. While drilling at the Macondo Prospect 0n April 20, 2010, an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig caused by a blowout and killed 11 crewmen. The explosion also ignited a reball visible from 35 miles away. The resulting re could not be extinguished and, on April 22, Deepwater Horizon sank, leaving the well gushing at the seabed, according to hazmatmag.com.

Woodrick, CFP 850-215-2244 | www.SeriousMoneyAdvisor.com Securities oered through LPL Financial, Member FINRA/SIPC Local A2 | Washington County News Saturday, February 23, 2013 SEARCH from page A1 If the water is there, the businesses will come, Hartman said, noting that while a hotel could not be built without city sewer services, restaurants could function on city water and a septic tank. Restaurants de nitely need city water, if they operate on a well, then they have to have their water tested every month, Hartman said. He said interested businesses have looked at the land in the past, but due to lack of water and sewer utilities, nothing has been done with the property. The city also loses between 22 and 27 percent of its water supply due to leaks, City Administrator Dan Miner said. Improving the water retention would save energy and make the water service more pro table, as well as saving energy, Bruce said. The energy savings for the citys water plant could be suf cient cause to receive a grant for the repairs. The rst step, Bruce explained, is to secure the services of a consulting rm. He recommended the city publish a Request For Quali cations and begin the process of searching for a consultant. The council agreed and voted to proceed with the preparation of an RFQ. The last 5-7 years weve not had the chance to do this, the mayor said. Id hate to not take the chance. Its not going to slip away from us because we didnt try. If we dont do something, were never going to get anything done, Rustin said. But I do not want to leave our childrens children in debt. The total amount of money that will be garnered through Clean Water Act civil and administrative penalties is unknown, but the nes that BP pays will go into the RESTORE Act trust fund will be divided 80-20, with 20 percent going into a oil spill liability trust fund and the 80 percent getting divided between the states (35 percent), the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council Allocation (30 percent), Oil Spill Restoration Impact Allocation (30 percent), the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Science, Observation, Monitoring & Technology Program (2.5 percent) and the Centers of Excellence (2.5 percent), according to a ow chart prepared by the Ocean Conservancy which DeRuntz presented to the commissioners. The 35 percent that is slated for the states will be divided equally, with Florida receiving 7 percent 75 percent of that amount is destined for the disproportionately impacted counties, Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, Bay, Gulf, Franklin and Wakulla. Washington County hopes to be one of the nondisproportionately affected counties, which will share the remaining 25 percent of the funds, DeRuntz said. Were not identi ed speci cally by name, because we dont have coast lines to the Gulf, DeRuntz said. But there is language in the bill that states that counties within 25 miles of the Gulf can apply. DeRuntz said that for the county to apply for RESTORE Act funds, several steps would have to be taken, including creating a committee of stakeholders and identifying projects which meet the federal grant parameters, which include things such as promotion of seafood, conservation and land acquisition, workforce development and tourism/ shing promotion. If we put a grant in, it has to focus on these grant parameters, DeRuntz said. Tasks such as updating the county parks map or developing a watershed management plan are two such projects the county could pursue under the RESTORE Act funding. I think we should de nitely go after this, said Board Chairman Alan Bush. The major northsouth corridors run right through Washington County, so there is no way we werent impacted by this, and we should be able to show that. Commissioner Charles Brock said he knew of several people in southern Washington County who lost their jobs following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill due to the economic downturn in Bay County. I know for a fact the people in the south end of District 3 were impacted hard. FIRE TRUCK from page A1 Palmer said he had been searching for a truck for the department for two years, and this truck, a combination re truck and tanker, was just what the department needed for the south end of Washington County. It meets our needs and our budget, he said. The key to success is getting water to the scene, Palmer said. We dont have any hydrants in the south of the county. Since re hydrants arent available, the rural re ghters have to take their own water to the scene, and keep replenishing that supply. The key is having a reliable tanker. Palmer said the tanker truck the department currently has is a manual transmission and not just anyone can drive it. The truck the department is purchasing is an automatic and is easier to drive. Also, the truck features remote dumping capacity, so that the trucks water can be unloaded from inside the cab. If there is a re in the daytime, we might just have two people show up, Palmer said, a hazard all the rural volunteer re departments face since the majority of the re ghters are working at their daytime jobs. With the new truck, a smaller crew could respond to a re and both have tanker capacity and re ghting tools. The re department was seeking $45,000 from the county and would provide $13,850 toward the purchase and other fees. The funds for the truck are budgeted for the Greenhead Fire Department, but Palmer was required to request the money from the board. The Greenhead Volunteer Fire Department is a corporation, and it would share ownership of the vehicle with the county, Palmer explained. Commissioner Lynn Gothard objected to the shared ownership, since the county has been considering making all the county re departments county-controlled organizations. If we decided to bring this truck back into the countys re service, then we would have to buy back our part of the truck from your corporation? Gothard asked. Palmer agreed. Gothard said she would prefer the county had sole ownership of the retruck. Palmer said he didnt care whos name was on the title, but he did want to retain possession of the truck. I would agree to signing over the title as long as there is some language in there that says the truck would stay permanently in Greenhead, Palmer said. Maybe its just my attorney mind, but I always start shaking in my boots when I hear someone say permanent, said County Attorney Jeff Goodman. I always wonder, Fifty years from now, how will this play out? He said a waiver of the contract which exists between the re department and the county would be required to make changes to the title. The commissioners decided that the ownership of the truck should be pro-rated in accordance with the amounts of money paid for the truck by each party, which would mean the county would hold the majority ownership of the vehicle. They also agreed the vehicle would remain at the Greenhead department. The purchase was approved contingent upon the contract waiver, written by Goodman, being brought back to the commissioners at the next meeting for review. RESTORE ACT from page A1 4:40 showing on the clock. Casey Perot scored all 13 of her points in the second half. Eve Heffron added 10 points, also notching all her points in the nal 16 minutes. Sorey returned to the game with 4:48 to play, but fouled out with less than a minute to go while the Tigers tried to stop the clock. That measure proved dif cult as well with South Walton able to milk the time from 1:40 to 1:04 before a foul. Chipley trailed 51-45 at that point and couldnt pull any closer. Chipley led 25-23 at halftime despite shooting 30 percent. South Walton shot at a 42 percent clip, but warmed in the second half. The Seahawks, led by Casey Perot and Heffron, were 11 for 18 in the second half (61 percent) while Chipley improved marginally to 34 percent. The Tigers won along the boards with 38 rebounds, including 26 on the offensive glass. However, Chipley couldnt convert enough to increase its lead, which it held for three quarters, and failed to draw fouls under the basket. South Walton committed just nine fouls to 23 for Chipley and the Tigers attempted only seven free throws. The Seahawks attempted 33 free throws and made 20 with the considerable difference playing a role in the outcome. We just fouled them a lot and they de nitely made a lot of shots, Hingson said. I think they were able to penetrate better. In the end their guards waned it and they took it to us and put on a lot of pressure. Chipley led by as many as eight late in the third quarter after three consecutive charging calls on South Walton, but the Seahawks took control with a 15-2 run that included the hot start in the fourth quarter. Jasmine Belser scored 14 and Ebony Williams 10 for Chipley. Williams missed her rst nine shots, but went 4 for 5 after the dry spell. Mackenzie Perot scored 12 and Tayler Menard eight for South Walton. Seven Seahawks scored in a balanced attack with six of those with ve or more points. Chipley came up short in its rst trip to the state semi nal since 2005, when Rickey McCullough was head coach. That was the fourth in an eight-year run of regional appearances. This season marked the rst time Chipley advanced past the district stage since 2009. We had a good run and it wasnt what we hoped for or expected, Hingson said. But Im still very proud of them.

We will have a readers theater presented by a rst grade class, snacks, drinks, PTO information and an open house to visit classrooms to kick off a second semester of fun and learning. Employee of the Year Recognition VERNON Washington County School District will hold a reception By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The Washington County School Board approved the 22-plus acre site between South Boulevard and Brickyard Road as the future home of Kate M. Smith Elementary School on Monday night. District Maintenance Director Mike Park reviewed the process the Site Selection Committee had gone through in choosing the new location for the school. This has been an ongoing process of about 20 years, Park said, and over the years, some of the names on the committee changed. In October the Department of Education visited the elementary school to determine the need for a new facility. Five days later, DOE issued the nding that there was a critical need for a new elementary school in Chipley, Park said. With that information, the selection committee met in late December and again on Jan. 3 to discuss the choice of school site, which came down to either stay at the current location, or move the school to the 22-plus acre tract of land the district owns that stretches between South Boulevard and Brickyard Road. Not all of the committee members were able to attend the Jan. 3 meeting, so Park polled the committee last week at Superintendent Joe Taylors request, and the committee recommended relocating the elementary school to the new site. With the funding, this is likely to be a two-year or three-year funding cycle, Park said. That was an important consideration, we really dont want to try and have construction going on while we are also having school.

Call 638-0212. FAITH Saturday, February 23, 2013 A Page 4 Section www.chipleypaper.com What would you be doing right now if you had all the money and time in the world? Lets say that youve got a month off of work, all the bills are paid in advance, and you can go anywhere you like. Where would you go? What would you do? Let you mind run wild. Its fun to daydream, isnt it? Of course, most of us dont have a month off of work and unlimited airfare. But the great thing about dreams is that they can come true. Dreams, with the proper application of effort, can become reality. There are times when we might temporarily whittle our dreams down to size. Lets say that you want to visit a coastal town in Australia, but dont currently have the time and money. Of course, if you want to go badly enough, youll make the time and money. But in the meanwhile, consider nearby spots that offer attractions similar to what youre seeking in your target destination. True, our local beaches are not the beaches of Australia. They dont seem exotic to us because theyre nearby. But theyre still beaches. So go to the beach, and consider it a preview of your future success. Consider a situation thats similar to your actual goal, but can be accomplished on a small, local scale. You may hope to run the Boston Marathon, but while youre waiting, dont forget to run in local competitions. If youre still awaiting start-up funds to open your own business, try selling on a smaller scale locally or online. If nothing else, host a yard sale. Commerce is commerce. Its good even when its small. Its great to dream, but dont become so entangled in dreams of the future that you fail to take action today. Sometimes, temporary measures can work in spiritual matters, too. I know several people who moved to locations where their particular spiritual paths arent represented. Instead of allowing their faith to lapse, they united with fellow believers online. No, its not the same as attending services with hundreds of people, but its sure better than nothing. Likewise, if a certain program isnt available at your house of worship, dont wait for someone to come start it. Do it yourself. If you cant make it happen now, then try working with (and learning from) similar groups that have already been established until you can launch a program of your own. Dont think of temporary measures as failures. They can actually be small victories. Even if youre not a captain of industry at the moment, every time you handle money, whether spending it or earning it, youre learning something about business. Try putting your leadership skills to the test on a small scale, learning as many lessons as possible, and then working up to the next level. Very few people who rose to greatness strolled into it by accident. They worked their way up. You may not currently be in your ideal location, school or job, but nothings stopping you from making the best of whatever situation youre in right now. The small steps you take today can lead toward achieving greater goals in the future.
