They also shared in Mayor Linda Cain’s recognition by the League of Cities for 25 years of service. About a hundred people crammed into city hall to hear community members voice their support for the council members, who vowed not to remove the city-owned nativity scene from city property. Last week, an attorney representing Wisconsinbased Freedom From Religion Foundation wrote Mayor Linda Cain suggesting that the display was illegal because it amounted to an endorsement of a single religion, thus violating the 1st Amendment. In attempt to bring the display into compliance with the law, the city has added a decorated tree. “It’s about time that communities, church leaders just all get together and start taking our country back,” said council member Karen Rustin, who pointed out that she placed her hand a Bible when she took the oath of of ce. “First it started with the schools. You can’t pray in schools. You can’t say this, you know, the pledge of allegiance. Now they’re up here, you know, you can’t have a bible. Well here’s my Bible.” News editor Randal Seyler had called the Wisconsin-based organization as well as others while researching what is permissible for displays on public property. Cain issued a prepared statement questioning whether Seyler’s action had generated the inquiry from FFRF. Seyler responded by publishing a column in which he explained that he was simply trying to nd out the rules governing such displays when he contacted the group; it was not an attempt to have the display removed nor did he make such a request. “I am sorry that the letter from FFRF was generated after I contacted them for an interview, and I am sorry that the FFRF letter was construed as an attempt by myself and the Citizens support nativity scene See COUNCIL A2 Mayor recognized for 25 years of service By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY — Washington County Board of County Commissioners approved of County Planning Director Mike DeRuntz’ request to expand the Enterprise Zones for Ebro and Vernon during its regular meeting on Thursday. “This has nothing to do with taxes or land use,” Executive Director of the Washington County Chamber of Commerce Ted Everett said. “It is just an imaginary boundary to help business owners. Enterprise Zones are a state incentive for new businesses create full time jobs in those areas.” After a public hearing, the board approved of a Small Scale Future Land Use Map Amendment from a Public/Semi-Public to a General Commercial designation for property at 3319 Court Ave. in Vernon. “It is just a future land use amendment,” DeRuntz said. “It is not for development.” Chair Alan Bush assured everyone if there was a need for a turn lane for that future business that it would be discussed during the development stage. The board held the rst of four public hearings before applying for a $750,000 Community Block Development Grant to pave Orange Hill Highway from where the pavement ends to Quail Hallow. “This is the rst of four public hearings we have advertised for in case anyone from the community wants to attend and speak about it,” County Engineer Cliff Knauer said. “Under the board’s direction, we are ready to move forward. We’ve had to push from January to February, but we have surveying and design done and permitting must be submitted; we’re still on schedule.” DeRuntz was asked to give an update on the Rhythm Project. “They are applying for permits and are still interested in developing in that area,” DeRuntz said. “They’re still meeting the requirements for the Department of Environmental From Staff Reports Herbert “H.J. Kuntry” Carter has been a xture at area city council meetings the past few months as he travels the Panhandle seeking recognition of his version of country music, known as “Dixie Phonics.” Carter, 72, appealed to the Chipley, Vernon and Bonifay city councils in November, seeking proclamations recognizing “Dixie Phonics” as a “cultural and artistic manifestion of music unique to the Panhandle Region of Florida and South Georgia area.” Carter told the Vernon council he was working to promote Southern music for our area. “Other parts of the country have their types of music, Delta blues, New Orleans Jazz — the Panhandle also has its own sound,” Carter said. Gulf, Leon and Wakulla counties have also signed the proclamation as have a number of cities in the area. Carter describes the “Dixie Phonics” sound has having a slowed-down Staff Reports POPLAR SPRINGS — Holmes County Sheriff’s Of ce reported there were three people arrested in connection to a synthetic narcotic ring on Dec. 6 at a residence in the Poplar Springs Community. The Holmes County Sheriff’s Of ce served a search warrant at the residence ,and deputies discovered 150 pounds of synthetic marijuana, along with paraphernalia, rearms and cash, according to the report. Owner of the residence, Frederick Gordon Fondo, 48, was arrested along with his wife, Shelia Marie Fondo, 45, and son, Frederick Tyler Fondo, 37, as a result of a month long investigation into complaints of suspected illegal activity at the residence by the Holmes County Sheriff’s Of ce, with the assistance of the Washington County Drug Task Force, according to the report.

Local A2 | Washington County News Saturday, December 14, 2013 Frederick Gordon Fondo was charged with possession of imitation controlled substance, pos session of analogue drug and possession of rearm in commission of felony; Shelia Marie Fondo was charged with possession of imitation controlled substance and posses sion of analogue drug; and Frederick Tyler Fondo was charged with possession of imitation controlled sub stance and possession of analogue drug. All are awaiting hear ing at the Holmes County Jail. “We will not toler ate anyone selling illegal drugs to our children or young adults,” Sheriff Tim Brown said. Brown asks anyone with any information on illegal activity to call 850-547-4421 or reportacrime@holmes cosheriff.org. Protection. It will be two years in January since they got started, and they’ve got ve years to meet their criteria.” DeRuntz said Bay Coun ty is still not supporting the project. Resident Howard Brock came before the board to say he suggested the board create a ve-member com mittee to attend Water Management meetings and to state he was con cerned with the number of houseboats on the Choc tawhatchee River and Hol mes Creek. “Fifteen years ago, you’d only see one or two and last week I went down there and seen over 11,” Brock said. “I’m concerned that it’s ruining our river. I’m ask ing the county commission what can we do to preserve our creeks and rivers.” Bush assured Brock the matter would be looked into. Melissa Collins, a vol unteer reghter with the Orange Hill Volunteer Fire Department said she had concerns with Sheriff Bob by Haddock being placed in charge over the re departments. “I question the vote on Nov. 9 that put Sheriff Had dock over various agen cies,” Collins said. “We were under the impres sion that there would be a discussion before the vote, but it was hurried along, and now instead of answer ing to the board, all that power was put in the hands of one man. What’s more is that it’s in the hands of a man that isn’t certied to handle the affairs of a re department.” Commissioner Todd Ab bott said there were multi ple re departments calling to ask who they answer to. Pat Thomas with the Florida League of Cities presented the board with a check for $27,021. “You have Casualty Insurance with Florida League of Cities,” Thomas said. “Because your trust was protable, you will receive a check from the Florida League of Cities in the amount of $27,021. We appreciate representing the county, and we look for ward to continue working with you.” The board approved of giving County Manager David Corbin authority to shut down and relocated the Clerk of Court’s ofce in the case the mold clean-up in the courthouse takes lon ger than a couple of days. County Attorney Jeff Goodman said during the process to repair damage to the Washington County Courthouse, mold was found in the basement, in the third oor and in air duct feeding to several rooms. “The courthouse has already elected not to use the court rooms, and the judges have already moved to the courthouse annex,” Goodman said. “As your legal represen tative I will have the ten dency to act towards over kill, like using a baseball bat instead of yswatter, especially when involving liability dealing with the health and well-being of staff members. We’re do ing this to see if we can get things resolved over the Christmas holiday, how ever, I recommend that if it takes more than a few days that David have the authority to shut down and relocate the Clerk of Court and give a status report in January.” tempo and a “coastal” sound — one he hopes will be identied with this part of the country much as Bluegrass is with Kentucky or Hillbilly music with the Ozarks. He said he encour ages others to see some of the country and hopes his story will inspire people to expand their horizons be yond the county line. Carter is no stranger to either music or the Pan handle. He grew up on a 68-acre farm on U.S. High way 319 along the FloridaGeorgia line and gradu ated in 1958 from Leon High School, where he and a friend won the talent con test his senior year by play ing a country music song. “When I graduated high school, I went into the Marines as a six-month reservist and fullled an eight-year obligation,” Carter told Tallahassee Magazine in 2007. “I went to work in 1960 … as a Tal lahassee city reman. I started going to Nashville in 1964, pitching songs.” Carter even managed a meeting at RCA Records to talk about his career. “I was 24 at the time,” Carter told the magazine. “It was my rst trip to Nashville, and I was kind of intimidated.” Carter never did make it to the meeting, but he did not give up on his country music dream. In 1967, he built a small recording stu dio and started producing gospel recordings. Carter also wrote a song about Marine Corps boot camp he pressed into a single. “It went international — went out all over the world through the Armed Forces Network,” Carter said. “I spent about 10 grand on that song, from my salary back in the 1960s — everything I had. But it was a good lesson; it was a good experience. I spent 16 months promoting that record. Then technology came along and started getting multiple tracks, and I couldn’t compete. I couldn’t keep up with them.” Carter found a musical protg, but things didn’t work out, and it almost ended Carter’s stint as a musician. “I said next time I got to be sure, because I can’t afford it,” Carter said. To avoid disappointment, Carter decided to bet on someone he could count on — himself. Carter took the plunge and became an in dependent country act. Along with his rst selfproduced album, Carter told the magazine he sent out comment cards. One came back with the com ment, “We’re 100 percent kuntry.” “Bingo – I’d never seen country spelled that way.” He liked it so much, he ad opted it as his stage name. His full-length album, “They Call Me H.J. Kun try,” featured Carter’s friend, Cliff Parker, and a group called the Nashville Cats. Once the album was out in 1975, Carter took off on a 10-year, cross coun try journey to promote his album. “The way I routed my self across the country, I got a list from the Coun try Music Association that showed me where every … station was that pro grammed country music, and I updated my list every year for 10 years. My focus was rural America.” “If I sold 20 (albums), I made a hundred bucks,” he said. “Albums cost me 60 cents to press in Nash ville; I sold them for ve bucks. Eight-tracks cost me two dollars; I sold them for six dollars. So my mar gin of prot was enough to buy me a tank of gas, two meals and to replenish my inventory.” In this manner, Carter said he sold more than 30,000 albums. Carter said his mantra on the road was simple. “Five to survive, 10 to win, 20’s plenty.” Doubtless, “Dixie Pho nics” will not just survive but will be plentiful by the time Carter is nished with his mission. Washington County News to have the city’s nativ ity scene removed. Again, that was not the case,” wrote Seyler. Though he made no complaint, Seyler has since contacted FFRF and told them he believes the city is compliant with its display. There has been no for mal legal challenge, but Richard Burke, who leads a street ministry called Hellghter Motorcycle Ministry, told the council he had spoken with an at torney who would repre sent the city free of charge in the event the dispute ends up in court. Some in the audience clearly felt FFRF’s action amounted to persecution of Christians. “They ridicule Chris tians. They laugh at Chris tians,” Burke said. “So I hope the City of Chipley will stay strong.” Cain thanked the peo ple who formed the stand ing-room only crowd at city hall Tuesday for showing up. “It’s good to know we’ve got the support out there,” Cain said. “—Because it’s not com ing down,” Rustin added. In other council busi ness Mayor Cain received an award from the Florida League of Cities. Sharron Barrion, Associate Direc tor of Membership De velopment for the league, presented Cain with the award recognizing her for 25 years of elected service and commending her for her “unselsh commit ment to municipal leader ship and governance.” Finally, council mem bers approved spending about $16,000 to buy a new phone system from AT&T. The police and re de partments as well as city administration will use the new phone system. The old one had become so obsolete that replace ment parts were no longer available.

Wednesday, December 14, 2013 Like us on WASHINGTON COUNTY NEWS/ HOLMES COUNTY ADVERTISER COMMUNITY CALENDAR When I was a high school senior, a local business offered a choice of gifts to members of the graduating class. One of those choices was a hope chest. I ultimately selected a different gift after seeing the puny size of the hope chest. Given the size of it, they apparently assumed our class was completely hopeless. Using a chest or box to conceal treasured items has been popular throughout history. I don’t know if young girls these days even know what a hope chest is, but they likely have some kind of decorative containers for storing valuables and heirlooms. Speaking of containers, consider the stereotypical image of a pirate’s treasure chest. What would a pirate have kept in there, anyway? You’d be sorely disappointed to dig up a pirate’s treasure chest only to discover he’d used it for hiding his dirty laundry. So what’s in a treasure chest? Treasure, of course. We know about treasure chests, hope chests, strongboxes, safety deposit boxes and other containers for stashing away prized material possessions, but what about a spiritual treasure chest? Humans are collectors by nature. We store away not only possessions, but thoughts, memories, hopes and dreams. We collect spiritual and emotional concepts. What spiritual teachings or experiences do you nd most precious? Whatever they are, they belong in your spiritual treasure chest. Even if you’re not religious, you can still have a treasure box lled with memories, ideas and knowledge. Your spiritual treasure chest is yours alone. Nobody can tell you what to put inside it. My treasures, whether physical or spiritual, will be different from yours. No two treasure chests contain the same thing. What moves your heart, elevates your spirit, and guides you down the pathway of life? That’s your treasure. But while there are treasure chests, there are also trash heaps. A bitter, negative person can end up collecting sewage instead of treasure. If we pour excess energy into thinking about what we hate, we stop remembering what we love. Have you been using your treasure chest as a dumpster? If so, it’s never too late to clean it out. Toss out that useless old junk and replace it with something truly valuable. The Bible addresses this in Matthew 6: 20-21: “But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” What’s in your heart, gold or garbage? Which would you rather store in your treasure chest, contempt or kindness? If your spiritual treasure chest has become a trash bin of unkindness and hostility, tidy it up. Don’t go through life guided by negative emotions. When dark thoughts come and they will let them pass. Don’t scoop them up and put them into your treasure chest. They don’t belong there. Save the treasure chest for actual treasure, those principles that will make you a kinder, better and more ethical human being. Keep treasure in your heart, not trash SHANNON SEYLER Faithfully Yours “But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Matthew 6: 20-21
