The Board of County Commissioners were holding their March meeting Thursday morning when Gothard read a prepared statement in which she alleged that County Manager Steve Joyner violated state laws when he arranged for the county to buy a generator from a fellow county employee a generator that happened to be stored at Joyners residence. After the meeting, I received information that the purchase had possibly violated both Florida statutes and county purchasing requirements, Gothard said. She began researching the information and agreed that possible violations had occurred and that more information and disclosure was needed. On Tuesday, March 4, three days after the February meeting, I both verbally and through email contacted Mr. Joyner asking that the generator not be purchased and the item be put on the March agenda for additional discussion, Gothard said. On Thursday, March 14, I received information that an invoice had been received by the nance of ce with the instructions for it to be paid ASAP. This was three business days before the March workshop where I had requested the item be discussed. Gothard contacted Joyner to ask why the generator was not on the agenda for the March workshop, and was told that a couple of commissioners had told him to go ahead and purchase the item since it had been approved in the February meeting, she said.

Sunny Hills meeting brings proposals Commissioners take no action on MSBU By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The Washington County Board of County Commissioners heard a report Thursday morning on a recent community meeting in Sunny Hills, but still made no decisions on the fate of the Sunny Hills Municipal Service Bene t Unit. We held a community meeting in Sunny Hills on March 14, and about 95 people were present, said Commissioner Lynn Gothard. It was a very good meeting, we got a lot of feedback and suggestions. The commissioners took no action Thursday, but the fate of the Sunny Hills MSBU has been an ongoing topic at BOCC meetings this year. The commissioners started discussing the MSBU in earnest on Jan. 24, when attorney Crystie Voehl of Tallahassee, a lawyer from County Attorney Jeff Goodmans law rm, gave the board a presentation on the history of the MSBU. An MSBU is an ordinance-created tax district and is a an area on a map, Goodman said at the January meeting, and ArtKidDoo to be held Saturday PHOTO BY RANDAL SEYLER | The News The Easter bunny was welcomed around Chipley by the Garden Club with decorations throughout the historic downtown district.

Local A2 | Washington County News Saturday, March 30, 2013 This Easter, make sure you celebrate the true meaning of the holiday with those you love. Fill your Easter baskets ...and hearts. clary-glenn.com 80 OV ER And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulcher... He is not here, but is risen. (Luke 24:2, 6) lack of regard for truthful disclosure and information, Gothard said. Gothard said county policy requires purchases of more than $10,000 to re ceive three quotes or bid proposals, and state statute requires disclosure of any potential conict of interest. Mr. Joyner was obligated to tell this board of his business and personal re lationships with the owner of Holdfast Construction and that the generator when purchased by the BOCC vote was located at Mr. Joyners home, Gothard said. Let me also say that I have found no where in either the Washington County policy or Florida Statutes any authority hat empowers a county commissioner to direct a county manager to disre gard the directive of fellow commission ers, Gothard said. In addition, asking commissioners about an issue which is or was to be added to the agenda and which could have resulted in a vote of the BOCC could be construed as poll ing of the board which violates Florida Sunshine Law. County Attorney Jeff Goodman did not comment on Gothards accusations during the meeting, and no one on the board asked him for a legal opinion. Her fellow commissioners did, however, begin to take exception with Gothard as soon as she nished her statement. Chairman Alan Bush told Gothard that there had been complaints from unidentied county employees who said that they felt threatened by her. Commissioner Joel Pate said Go thard was the most meddlesome com missioner he had ever seen. Joyner noted that the board, includ ing Gothard, had voted to purchase the generator, and Commissioner Todd Abbott said the generator was a much needed piece of equipment. Frankly, I was embarrassed to nd out the county couldnt run if the power went out, Abbott said. The generator was needed so the county could run both the lights and the fuel pumps in the case of a power outage. The generator was purchased for $22,500 from Holdfast Construction, owned by Mike Horton. According to the minutes from the Feb. 28 meeting, the generator was purchased with mon ey the county raised by selling scrap metal. Today I am making a public notice that failure to follow the policies as stat ed in the Washington County employee handbook and operational manual, as well as the Florida Statutes, in the fu ture will result in my request of this board for disciplinary action as directed by board policies, Gothard said. STATUTE from page A1 all responsibility for the MSBU area falls back on the county commissioners. Currently, the county collects $31.25 a year from residents and property owners within the MSBU, and that money is used to provide services to those living in Sunny Hills, as well as pay down the $1.66 mil lion in debt a loan that is not scheduled to be paid off until 2028, Goodman said. At the Feb. 28 board meeting, Sal Zuricka pre sented to the commission ers the MSBU advisory boards recommendation that all services to Sunny Hills be terminated and all incoming MSBU funds ap plied to the retirement of the $1.66 million debt. The primary services the commissioners want to keep going for Sunny Hills are street lights and mow ing the right-of-ways on the main boulevards. Zuricka said the Sunny Hills group strongly rec ommends that the disso lution be done as soon as possible. Zuricka also recom mended two members of the advisory board should stay in place to monitor the disbursement of the money. Gothard suggested the community meeting in Sun ny Hills, and she, along with Commissioner Todd Abbott and County Manager Steve Joyner, met with Sunny Hills residents on March 14 to hear the communitys ideas about the future of the MSBU. I came away from that meeting seeing two basic options, Gothard said. Option one would be to put all the MSBU assess ment funds toward paying off the debt, then discon tinue the assessments. Another option would be to pay off the debt, then keep a reduced assessment in place to provide funds to keep services such as mow ing and street lights. Both options Gothard mentioned included us ing as much of the MSBU assessment funds as pos sible to pay off the debt by 2016. The MSBU cannot be totally dismantled by the county until the debt is paid off, since it was created by ordinance to raise funds which were used to pay for road repairs. Another issue that came up was that we should put measures in place to be sure spending of the MSBU never occurs again, Go thard said. She noted that the county is engaged in a law suit with a group of Sunny Hills residents, and said the group was seeking $7 million from the county in damages. At the commu nity meeting, Gothard said she received a note from another Sunny Hills group also threatening to sue the county. It was apparent to me that a number of the people want to continue the MSBU, Abbott said. When the MSBU was formed, it was formed for a purpose. Can that purpose be altered? Abbott asked Goodman. Goodman said the Sun ny Hills MSBU ordinance was broader than a typical ordinance, and that the or dinance could be changed to narrow the focus of the MSBU. Most MSBU ordi nances you see now in the state are very specic. Goodman said he would suggest terminating the MSBU then starting a new one with a more specic scope. This has been an ongo ing issue, and I think the board just wants to make things clear, said Abbott. Another problem the county faces is future main tenance of Sunny Hills roadways, Abbott said. Those are county roads, and we will have to main tain them, Abbott said. Commissioner Charles Brock said the road condi tions were the main reason the MSBU was created. Those roads were noth ing but potholes, potholes, potholes. SUNNY HILLS from page A1 Special to the News CHIPLEY River Road at Gum Creek will be closed beginning April 8 for ap proximately four to six months, accord ing to Washington County ofcials. This project will replace the existing bridge on River Road over Gum Creek.

Pack 339 visits the USS Alabama Special to the News On March 22, eight Cub Scouts from Pack 339, sponsor by the Chipley Kiwanis Club, toured and then spent the night aboard the Battleship USS Alabama in Mobile, Ala. Led by their Cubmaster, Coy Pennington, the Scouts explored the ship from bow to stern and learned about life on this historic Battlewagon as she served in World War II. The Scouts also explored the submarine USS Drum, which ranked eighth among all U.S. Navy subs for the amount of enemy shipping tonnage she sank. The aviation enthusiasts in the group were thrilled as they viewed over 20 aircraft on the grounds of the Park and in the Indoor Aircraft Pavilion dedicated to the 28 Medal of Honor recipients from Alabama. The USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park is dedicated to Alabamians who served in all branches of the military and is an independent agency of the State of Alabama.

Faith BRIEFS Honor the Savior by following His example For Christians, the week leading up to Easter can be an emotional roller coaster ride. Palm Sunday opens with accounts of Jesus triumphant entrance into Jerusalem, but quickly turns to the darker subject of his trial. For the denominations that observe Maundy Thursday, parishioners are invited to meditate upon the Last Supper. On Good Friday, Christians around the world commemorate the cruci xion. Following the Easter Vigil, we nally arrive at Easter Sunday, one of the most triumphant days of the entire Christian calendar. Ive known several clergy members whove stated that Easter should receive more attention than Christmas. Jesus birth is, indeed, something to celebrate but to many Christians, the resurrection is the focal point of the Gospels, and thats what Easter is all about. People are not only observing Easter at this time, but also Passover and other major holidays. So this is a season of great contemplation and joy for religious individuals around the world. It can also be a time for charitable giving. Theres almost always an outpouring of charity at Christmas, but after New Years Day, many people feel burned out. By Easter, charitable organizations are hurting for funds. Easter is a highly appropriate time for giving. At one point, my husband and I were sponsoring a child overseas. We were informed that Easter, in that childs country, is actually more of a time for exchanging gifts than Christmas. Here in the U.S., people go out of their way to buy Easter baskets, but perhaps a bit of the money spent on chocolate could also be diverted toward helping the poor. If youre celebrating Easter, a good way to honor Jesus resurrection could include following his example of helping others. True, the stories about Jesus are miraculous. I cant touch a suffering individual and heal them like Jesus did, but I can donate to organizations that send physicians to heal those who lack access to medical services. Jesus spoke of providing food and clothing for the poor, visiting prisoners and other acts of kindness. Look closely at the stories of Jesus ministry. What was important to him? What did he focus on? This isnt about whats important to some denominational party line, but rather, about whats really going on in the Gospels. Read the stories again. What can you learn from them? What can these centuries-old stories teach us today? The same questions can be asked for those celebrating Passover and other holidays. Holidays dont arise by accident. When you celebrate a holiday, do you take the time to understand what its really about? What does it mean to you? What can be learned from the classic stories repeated during your favorite holidays? No matter what youre celebrating, thinking of others is always in season. CHARITY OF THE WEEK Give Kids the World Give Kids the World is a Florida-based charity serving families from all 50 states and over 70 countries worldwide. They operate Give Kids the World Village, a non-pro t resort in Florida for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. Theyve now assisted over 120,000 families. This group works with kids from ages 3 to 18 who have been diagnosed with critical illnesses. These children and their families are treated to a free week-long resort vacation. Give Kids the World is an independent organization, but partners with several different wish-granting charities, taking recommendations for qualifying children from these groups. They provide a chance for children and their families to get a much-needed break, and allow seriously ill youngsters a chance to take home magical memories of a place built especially for them.

KNIGHTS GIVE TO PREGNANCY CENTER Funeral inspires testimony of faith Dear Editor, I attended a funeral of a citizen of Washington County today and I want to give this testimony in memory of Jesse Andrew Dennis, Jr. who lived down in the Hinson Crossroads area. Brother Jessie was more than a friend, he was a brother of mine. A friend and former church member, yes, but he was a brother to me because both of us had been born into the family of God by the only birth on can do so, by the blood of Jesus Christ. Brother Jesse was a registered building contractor and a faithful church member. Most of the times I saw him was when he had in his hands a hammer, a saw or a Bible, The Word of God. I know he will be missed by many who knew him, as well as his loving wife, Mary and the children and grandchildren. I close these words of memory by saying Brother Jesse also loved to sh. I often would go and stay a short while and then go back to my ministry. Brother Jesse said the reason I did not catch many sh from the pond or creek, was because I had catching souls for Christ on my mind all the time. He was a soul sher also! I may not ever see him on earth again, but I will see him again! His word to us, if he could speak today, would be, Get the birth and keep the faith! Rev. Dr. Billy Bruner, Th.D.
