Saturday, OCTOBER 19 2013 Volume 90, Number 54 Faith Events A4 WEEKEND Washington County News Man sentenced to 25 years for selling hydrocodone Staff Reports CHIPLEY A Westville man has been sentenced to 25 years in the Department of Corrections, the Washington County Sheriffs Ofce reported on Tuesday. The sentence stems from an October 2012, arrest on narcotics charges. Gary Michael Kenyon, 56, of Westville, was sentenced to 25 years minimum/mandatory (day for a day) in the state Department of Corrections with 120 days credit including a civil judgment of $500,000. Kenyon was the target of a narcotics investigation during which he sold undercover of cers 40 hydrocodone pills, according to the sheriffs of ce report. Kenyon was arrested on charges of sell of hydrocodone and traf cking in hydrocodone. We have assembled this narcotics task force with the singular purpose of aggressively targeting those who continually pursue a career in the illegal drug market in our county said Sheriff Bobby Haddock. Kenyon is a career criminal who has habitually pushed illegal narcotics for several years. This sentence re ects both the State Attorneys Of ce as well as our commitment to not settling for a band aid x, but pursuing a permanent removal of this threat to our community. The Washington County Drug Task Force asks that anyone with information on illegal drug activity contact them at 638-TIPS (8477) or by email at tips@wcso.u s GARY M.

Local Washington County News | A3 Saturday, October 19, 2013 operating savings, ABM also offered students in the schools Building Trades Program hands-on experi ence with the project. Improvements to the 15 buildings on campus include retrotting light xtures with new high-ef ciency T-8 uorescent lamps and ballasts; renovating exhaust systems in certain buildings for improved air circulation; installation of a campus-wide, web-based HVAC control system, al lowing the school to better manage energy use as well as notify appropriate staff should any problems arise with the equipment; and 63 HVAC units will be re placed with high-efciency equipment that exceeds a Seasonal Energy Efciency Ratio (SEER) of 15, accord ing to the website. From the period of March 2012 to June 2013, the district saw utility sav ings of $116,723, Walker told the board, saying the district would have spent $251,904 in utilities but ac tually only spent $135,181, for the savings of $116,723. Contractually, the dis trict was guaranteed sav ings of $149,314 ($30,000 in maintenance and opera tion savings and $119,314 in energy savings), Walker said. However, the total savings for the period was actually $150,351 ($30,000 in maintenance and operation savings, $18207 in construc tion period energy savings, $98,516 in audit period sav ings July 2012-June 2013, $1090 in reconciled energy savings and $2,538 in opera tional water savings.) The saved energy amounts to 1,218 barrels of oil not consumed, or 4.0 acres of forest preserved, Walker said. Were right where we said wed be with the en ergy savings, Board Presi dent Terry Ellis said. The board also discussed the bus schedule at Kate Smith Elementary School. On Sept. 30, teacher Marla Whitaker told the school board of her con cerns about elementary students who are forced to wait 30 or more minutes after school for their bus to arrive, some times with little supervision. Transportation and Maintenance Director Mike Park told the board on Mon day that the buses were running the best schedule they could. I went to Kate Smith and noted the bus arrival times, Park said. After the rst couple of weeks of school, the schedule settled down. They are delivering the students who live nearby to make room for the elemen tary students, Park said. Were doing the best we can, but the schedule is set. Right now, this is the most efcient schedule we can come up with. The children are still staying out there wait ing, Board Member Susan Roberts said. We want to stay on top of this, Ellis said. We are going to have to address different xes, other than just buses.

Financing Arranged (W AC) jobs. Clearly we have got some work to do there. Grove, of Panama City, is working with the manufacturers council on loan from Gulf Power to help with workforce develop ment, spoke on the importance of manufacturing jobs to the re gional economy, and the potential for good careers for students with industrial certications. We all get to live in a place where millions of people wish they could live, and we want to provide jobs so our children and grandchildren can stay close to home, if not in the same city, then at least in the region, Grove said. Close enough they can visit but not so close you have to do all their laundry, she added, joking. While there is not a lack of ap plicants for jobs at Gulf Power, there is often a lack of qualied applicants applying for the jobs which is a problem for manu facturers across the country as well as across the region. In my job, I focus on work force development for the energy industry, and it is a struggle to nd employees who have not only the job skills, but the soft skills as well, such as the habit of showing up for work every day on time, Grove said. The manufacturers council is looking at the same challenges as they apply to industrial jobs across the 12-county region. The region, which stretches from Es cambia to Franklin counties, is expected to receive $2.6 billion in total 2013 Gross Domestic Prod uct from manufacturing. Manufacturing provides 14,518 jobs within the regional economy, and generates $985 million in total earnings. The leisure and hospitality industry, on the other hand, employs 63,053 workers in the region and generates $1.3 bil lion in earnings. We looked at the manufactur ing jobs in Northwest Florida, and found there are 14,000 jobs with an average annual salary of $67,872, Grove said. On the other hand, the tourism industry is paying an nual salaries of $20,600. For every job in manufactur ing, an additional 1.7 jobs are gen erated in the region. Getting parents and legisla tors on board with the idea that manufacturing careers are lucra tive has been a challenge, but the state of Florida is ahead of the game, Grove said. Adam Putnam, commissioner of agriculture, said recently he would rather be involved in the government of Florida rather than any other state in the coun try, Grove said. While our legis lators are debating how much we should be involved in getting our high school and middle school students on track to get indus trial certications, other states are still debating whether or not it should even be an issue. Regional manufacturers coun cils are also found across the country and throughout Flori da, but until the forming of the Northwest Florida Manufactur ers Council, there was not one in this region, Grove said. As an example of one benet of having a manufacturers council, local businesses are now eligible for grants to reimburse them for training expenses up to $3,500 for each new job added, Grove said. Normally, you have to add 10 jobs to be eligible for this reim bursement, but through the coun cil, you can now be eligible for even one job due to this grant, she said. Nationally, 70 percent of Amer icans think manufacturing is the most important industry as far as impact to the national economy, yet only 30 percent of those polled would want their children to work in manufacturing. The days when you gradu ated high school, went to college, then lived happily ever after are over, Grove said. If you look at the state unemployment statis tics, and see the number of bacca laureate degree holders who are unemployed, you realize just hav ing a college degree isnt enough any more. Grove said parents need to be talking to children about what type of career they want to have and begin learning skills as early as middle school. You have to know what you want to do, and then you have to develop those skills needed for that career to be successful, Grove said. This is why manufacturing is so important to our rural coun ties, said Terry Ellis, who man ages WestPoint Home in Chipley and also serves on the board of directors for the manufacturers council. So many of our young people are having to go nd work somewhere else, its important we create an atmosphere where they can stay close to home.

Each episode highlights someone who converted to Catholicism, including several Protestant ministers. Conversion stories are interesting, regardless of what faith a person has converted to. As Ive often noted, religion is like a revolving door, with people constantly moving in and out. Its interesting to know what causes people to convert to a certain faith (or, in some cases, to reject religion altogether.) The title of the program, The Journey Home, underscores the perception of ones chosen faith as a home. Home is where we feel most comfortable. Its warm and familiar. Ive met many Christians who refer to their house of worship as their church home. But even in our actual homes, not everyone will hold the same viewpoints. Personally, Ive never found a spiritual group that shares my beliefs exactly, and thats okay. Just as family members cant be expected to think exactly alike, neither can those who share our spiritual homes. A classic example would be Unitarian Universalist congregations, in which people can hold very different beliefs and opinions while still being united as a strong, thriving community. People often change homes. A place that once felt comfortable may no longer be adequate. Just as people change physical locations, they may likewise change spiritual homes. Unanticipated events in life can sometimes alter the structure of our homes and families. Spiritual changes are also among lifes little surprises. Even if youre never changed religions, or arent religious, youre still on a journey. Peoples beliefs and outlooks change over time. Often, those changes are subtle, but in some cases, theyre not. Someone I know shocked her family and friends by abruptly becoming a Jehovahs Witness. She has remained one for decades. She found her spiritual home, although it certainly took everyone around her by surprise. A major religious conversion certainly quali es a journey, but so does the progress of someone whose religious af liation has never changed. Lets say that someone has belonged to a certain religion all her life. Even so, her outlook and experiences within that religion will have changed over the years. Such individuals have the good fortune of making their journey within a spiritual framework they already know and love. So, what about your own journey? What led you to where you are today? Get a sheet of paper and try writing down the steps of your spiritual journey. Take note of people, movements or ideas that have in uenced you. You might be surprised to see what has in uenced you most. If youre not religious, try charting your philosophical journey. How have your personal beliefs and viewpoints changed? Learning more about your journey can help you anticipate where it might take you next.
