By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT firstname.lastname@example.org CHIPLEY Washington County employees will not see an increase in their health insurance premium in the coming year, thanks to the Board of County Commissioners decision on Tuesday morning. J. Scott Olson, investment advisor with Olson Insurance & Financial Services of Tallahassee, presented the costs of the countys Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance plan to the board during a special meeting. As you instructed at the last meeting, I calculated the expenses covering the employee-only cost, Olson said. We recalculated it, and covering the employee-only costs increased the total cost by $10,000. The county can expect to pay about $864,757.92 to provide insurance to the countys 106 enrolled employees, an increase of $172,790 over last years expense, according to information Olson provided to the board. You basically have three plans; I call them gold, bronze and silver, Olson said. In the highest level of bene ts, 53 employees are enrolled, and the mid-tier bene ts have 37 employees participating. Only 16 county employees are enrolled in the lowest level of health insurance coverage. Obviously our plan is fairly economical if the bulk of our employees are in the highest level of coverage shows that our program is pretty affordable, Chairman Alan Bush said. Commissioner Todd Abbott objected to the presentation. Were not going to let our agent dictate what coverage our employees receive, he said. Abbott asked what it would cost for the county to absorb all the proposed health care premium Health care premiums will not change BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS School Board discusses construction managers 5 solidly quali ed candidates to give presentations Monday By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT email@example.com CHIPLEY The Washington County School Board had a brief special meeting Monday to discuss applicants for the construction manager position the district recently advertised. We had five packets submitted, and they are all solidly qualified, Superintendent Joe Taylor said. I suggest we just interview all five of them next Monday instead of taking time to rank them today. The board agreed to have all five applicants for the construction manager position make presentations at the board meeting scheduled for 4 p.m. Monday, Dec. 2. See PREMIUMS A2 By MATTHEW BEATON 522-5114 | @matthewbeaton firstname.lastname@example.org SUNNY HILLS Improvements and restoration efforts began Monday on a popular swimming spot just north of Bay County. The goal is to curtail erosion at Devils Hole by stacking sandbags along the shore and planting trees and shrubs to secure the bank, according to the Northwest Florida Water Management District, which is overseeing the work. Devils Hole sits north of Walsingham Bridge in Washington County. The project also includes a swimming platform and boardwalk, with steps that enter the water. Use of such an entrance limits shoreline erosion, according to the district. Devils Hole currently has none of these features. River oats, ferns, swamp chestnut oaks, wax myrtles, hollies and azaleas are among the native species that will be planted along the shoreline, stabilizing it and stopping it from washing away. Were excited to begin this project, which will allow us to restore the stream bank and prevent erosion at Devils Hole, bene ting water quality and protecting (the) native habitat, said Swimming hole to be improved See SCHOOL A2 INDEX Faith .....................................

Local A2 | Washington County News Saturday, November 30, 2013 Special to the News CHIPLEY Community South Credit Union learned on Nov. 23 that its brand video Fish for the Future earned an Emmy from the Suncoast Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. The credit unions marketing partner, The Pod Advertising, accepted the statue before a room lled with television industry professionals from around the Southeast at the awards show in Hollywood, Fla. The Suncoast Emmy Awards honors achievement in television markets within Florida, Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia and Puerto Rico. Community South Credit Union earned an Emmy in the competitive category of Commercials. However, the goal was unique compared to its competitors. Weve struggled with how to encourage long-term scal responsibility because its easy to tune out traditional nancial education, said Jan Page, CEO of Community South Credit Union. Our friends at The Pod created a video that embodies the spirit of our brand while sharing important lessons about thinking toward the future. Appreciating outsidethe-box thinking is part of what makes Community South unique and successful, said Samantha Strickland, CEO of The Pod. Not all credit unions would be comfortable with a marketing strategy that doesnt specically sell a product, Strickland said. But Jan Page and her team understand that branding is not about selling, its about storytelling. Long-term loyalty is derived from messages that resonate on a deeper level than price. Strickland founded her rm, The Pod Advertising, in January 2011 after leading the marketing efforts of First Commerce Credit Union for almost 13 years. A team led by Creative Director Ma[R]co Barreto and Senior Producer Deirdre Morales, along with Production Director/Editor Kristin Bass-Petersen, Camera Operator Mar Garcia and writers Jason Whitmore and Amanda Broadfoot collaborated tirelessly to bring this piece to life. The full-service marketing rm is in Tallahassee and primarily focuses on the credit union industry. Community South was one of The Pods rst clients and where Stricklands passion for credit unions originally started. Im a lifelong Community South member, so theyve been a part of a lot of milestones in my life my rst savings account, my rst car, my rst trip to Greece. And with this Emmy win, weve shared a new milestone together, Strickland said. But more importantly, Im proud to see my hometown credit union consistently growing and setting an example of how to lead a market. This year, Community South has experienced growth in all areas. Membership is up over 3.2 percent. Loans have increased almost 5 percent, and with 3.6 percent growth in assets so far, the credit union is closing in on the benchmark $100 million mark (currently $95 million). And there are no plans to slow down. In fact, Jan Page sees big things on the horizon. She said, In Fish for the Future the grandfather teaches us that all great things have small beginnings. Something tells me this Emmy win is just the beginning for great things to come for Community South and The Pod. ON THE WEB Watch the video at http://bit.ly/CSCUFish.

Under the proposal Ol son presented to the board, only the employee-only coverage would see no increase. Family plans would see increases ranging from 19.6 percent to 23.1 percent, however. It would cost about $15,000 to cover all the increases, Olson said. That would be $25,000 in cluding the $10,000 for employee only. Olson said the amounts were approximate because there has not been an enrollment for county employees, who might add depen dents to the plan. We wont have nal numbers until after we have an enrollment, he said. County Coordinator David Corbin asked when Olson would like to hold the open enrollment for the county employees. As soon as possible, Olson said. Next week if we can. Olson said he would meet with Corbin to schedule the enrollment period for the county employees after Tues days meeting. Commissioner Charles Brock made the motion to pay for the insurance including the $25,000 in crease so county employees would not see an increase in their health care costs next year. Abbott sec onded the motion, much to the sur prise of Brock. Youre agreeing with me? Brock asked, jokingly. If you cant beat them, join them, Abbott said. The boards vote was unanimous. The two also combined to make the motion that the county adopt the proposed voluntary dental plan for employees, which will re main the same but will see a slight increase in cost. Employee-only will increase $3.79 a month, a 13.98 percent increase. Family, spouse and child plans will increase about 14 percent, or an increase ranging from $4.01 to $6.13 depending on the number of dependents. Ive had phone calls from a few employees asking about pay bonuses, Commissioner Lynn Go thard said. Now, David, you can tell them they just got it. The construction man ager will be over the Ver non Elementary School project, which includes new classrooms and de molition of some existing structure. The board members will hear 20-minute pre sentations Monday from each of the ve companies that submitted an applica tion for the position, after which they will select a winning candidate. The district has a num ber of construction proj ects in the works, includ ing the renovations at the Chipley High School and Vernon Elementary School, and a new, $33 million Kate M. Smith El ementary School is in the planning stages. The new elementary school was given the high est ranking in August from the Department of Educa tions Special Facilities Construction Committee, which means the project most likely will receive funding from the state. The project was ranked No. 1 by the committee in Tallahassee, which means the new school is deemed a critical need project. Taylor and a few board members went to Talla hassee on Aug. 15 to pres ent the project to the com mittee and returned feel ing optimistic about their presentation. A letter from the DOE dated Aug. 21 states, the committee voted to recom mend the new Kate Smith Elementary School project for inclusion in the Com missioners Capital Outlay Budget for 2014-15. The districts work to get the construction proj ect ready for presentation to the committee in August began in January when the school board started debating whether or not to build the new school on the same site where the current school sits or to build it somewhere else. Ultimately, the board de cided to build the new school in a new location a 22-acre tract of land the district owns between Brickyard Road and South Boulevard. The board tabled the rest of the meetings ac tion items due to Attorney Jeff Goodman being un able to attend the meeting. The action items included the approval of the 2012-15 Master Contract and the approval of the distribu tion of the teacher salary allocation funds. Taylor also asked the board to plan on recog nizing, during the Dec. 9 board meeting, the Vernon Yellow Jackets football players for their district championship as well as Chipley High band and choral students who earned all-state honors recently.

F AITH www.chipleypaper.com A Section Upon entering college, one of my rst assignments involved selecting a folded slip of paper from a hat. Every student was required to take one. Each slip listed a philosophical, religious, social or moral viewpoint considered unpopular, controversial or offensive. Then we were instructed to defend the random position wed just drawn by delivering a speech. If the speech wasnt enthusiastic and persuasive, it would receive a failing grade. And thats how I delivered my rst and only public lecture on the glories of fascism. As uncomfortable as it was, it was de nitely a learning experience. It forced me to think outside of my comfort zone. In defending the indefensible, I had to examine the mindsets of people whose ideas I nd appalling. Naturally, I still nd fascism loathsome, but I earned an A on that assignment. I learned how to let down my guard while researching opposing viewpoints, as well as how to work around my own preconceived ideas. This would come in handy later as an interviewer and roundtable moderator, enabling me to conduct calm, orderly discussions with people whose viewpoints horrify me. Theres a spiritual exercise involving the intensive study of unfamiliar religious positions. Its not about learning a few quick facts about a different religion, but completely immersing yourself in it, even when you disagree. You need never formally convert to the religion in question, but just study it carefully for a month. By the end of that month, youll be surprised at what youve learned. But some people are incapable of doing this. Theyre usually the same types who cant handle hypothetical situations. They cant cope with what if? scenarios and questions. They wont let down their guard. But take a moment to think about your guard in a literal sense. Psychologically, we place guards over our minds, hearts and spirits. Picture an actual guard standing at a door. Though a guard can protect you, he can also keep you imprisoned. You probably dont have a guard posted outside your actual front door, so why allow one to obstruct the doorway of your mind? With a guard in place, nothing can go in or out freely. Its time to send your guard out for a coffee break. Yes, Im aware that if we believe everything were told, we become gullible fools. Thats why we set up mental guards in the rst place. But while these guards initially serve a useful function, they can overstay their welcome. In the case of my college assignment, nobody was asking me to actually become a fascist. It was merely a classroom exercise. Its like accepting a role in a play. We willingly let down our guard to both watch and act in plays, so why not try it in other areas of life? Whatever youre trying to protect yourself from, its probably not the overwhelming threat you think it is. So let down your guard, even if just temporarily. After a while, you may discover that its no longer necessary or advisable to keep a guard on permanent duty.
