The search began after Holley reportedly showed up at a residence on Greenhead Road, where his wife had been staying after an argument with him. A domestic incident ensued. According to reports, Holley then got in his vehicle and drove it directly at another individual on the property. The intended victim, who was armed with a 12-gauge shotgun, red and shot through the drivers side door, striking Holley in the leg with buckshot. Holley later reportedly told family members he wouldnt be taken alive and would kill anyone who tried to arrest him. Holley, who was also wanted on unrelated charges by the Panama City Beach Police Department and for grand theft by Escambia County, was captured near his home Thursday morning after SWAT teams from the WCSO, Bay County Sheriffs Of ce, the BCSO helicopter, and the U.S. Marshals Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force spent more than 24 hours searching both sides of the Washington and Bay county line near Ebro. The arrest came after a physical altercation that resulted in both Holley and two law enforcement of cer receiving minor injuries after the suspect dove out of a plate glass window to attempt escape and then fought with of cers. Holley was booked into the Bay County Jail and is charged with aggravated assault and domestic battery in Washington County, four counts of resisting arrest with violence, and two counts of battery on a law enforcement of cer. Stolen property was also reportedly recovered from his home. Local fugitive in custodyVolume 89, Number 94 House bill wont help bring slots to EbroBy MATTHEW BEATON 522-5114 | @matthewbeaton mbeaton@pcnh.com TALLAHASSEE Comprehensive gaming legislation in the state House wont help Ebro Greyhound Parks quest for slots. The bill (HB 1383), led earlier this week, re ects House Speaker Will Weatherfords low view of the gaming industry and desire to avoid expanding it. The bill does not include a plan for two South Florida destination casinos, as does a similar Senate measure (SPB 7052), nor would it allow slots in several counties, including Washington, which have approved them by voter referenda. Instead, the bill would overhaul Florida statutes, cleaning up the codes and adding a Gaming Control Commission to regulate the industry. Gaming Committee Chairman Rob Schenck, R-Spring Hill, led the 411-page bill, sure to be the chief piece of legislation his committee hears during the 2014 session. The bill is silent on the slot machine issue, but state Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach, said he is open-minded about Ebros situation because voters already have approved them. He is running for an open state Senate seat See BILL A2By CAROL KENT638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY A Chipley business owner is in jail this week after the Washington County Drug Task Force concluded a lengthy investigation into allegations a local store was selling narcotics to select customers. Ahmad Shibly Raihan, partial owner of Chipley Foodmart at the corner of State Road 77 and South Boulevard was arrested late in the afternoon on March 4. According to the Chipley Police Department, the store was selling synthetic marijuana under the label of Scooby Snax Potpourri. Synthetic marijuana is illegal to sell over the counter, but a search of the store led to the discovery of both marijuana and synthetic marijuana concealed in the storage room of the business. The synthetic marijuana was individually packaged for sale, according to reports, and not displayed, but rather sold to select customers during normal business hours. Raihan, who was the manager on duty at the time of the search, was arrested and booked into the Washington County Jail on charges of sell of synthetic narcotic, possession of synthetic narcotic with intent to sell and possession of marijuana. Synthetic marijuana is an illegal substance that is commonly mistaken as being legal and has become a popular alternative for our young people to consume as opposed to cannabis, said Chipley Police Chief Kevin Crews. These substances are sold in stores as potpourri in varying amounts and actually marketed as a fragrance, but its real intent is to be consumed. Synthetic marijuana is extremely dangerous to our children, and those who choose to consume this illegal substance. The Chipley Police Department has made efforts to rid our local stores of these substances, he added. I ask if anyone knows of persons or businesses that are still selling these substances, or of any other criminal activity, to report these activities to the Chipley Police Department at 638-6310, or to remain anonymous, call the Crime Stoppers of Washington County at 638-TIPS.

INDEXCommunity Calendar .............A5 Events ...................................A6 Classi eds .............................A8 By CAROL KENT638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The Washington County Planning Commission is looking to change nonconforming land use classi cations in an effort to update county land use maps. County Senior Planner Mike DeRuntz said the goal is to correct some inconsistencies. As designed, the proposed changes wont change how properties can be used, DeRuntz said. It will only serve the purpose of cleaning up the map and re ecting more accurately how property is actually used. This will not affect property tax assessments in any way, and most of the proposed classi cations wont affect individual properties. Planning Commission board member Roger Hagan explained the concept in simple terms during the March 4 Planning Commission meeting. If a room has a broom, mop and (other cleaning supplies) in it, its a broom closet, no matter if you call it a dining room or anything else. All were wanting to do is identify the land as what its already being used for, essentially calling the broom closet a broom closet. Currently, there are 900 parcels up for reclassi cation, totaling more than 18,000 acres Planning Commission hopes to bring property into conformity OUTDATED MAPSSee MAPS A2CAROL KENT | The NewsSenior Planner Mike DeRuntz reviews nonconforming properties on the county map.

Gaetz, a member of the gaming committee, said he wants to give the will of the voters special deference. He said he wasnt sure if he would support the Ebro slots, though, and would need time to review the particulars on the situation the games that would exist, the tax rate and the benet to the community. On the whole, Gaetz said he is against expanding gambling not because of moral qualms, but because its not a sound economic development strategy most of the time. He is particularly opposed to destination resorts and said hes very skeptical that putting big ones in South Florida would benet his Panhandle constituents. The money doesnt sleep overnight in many of the communities where casinos exist, he said. The money is shipped off to, you know, Las Vegas or Asia. The House bill also does not address decoupling which would end a requirement that greyhound tracks run a minimum number of races to operate a card room or mandatory injury reporting for tracks. But Gaetz sees those issues as top priorities and will ght for them in the Gaming Committee, he said. Gaetz also said its paramount to keep decoupling away from special interest groups that might bog it down and prevent its passage. Most legislators and even most industry stakeholders agree that decoupling is the right thing to do, he said. The gaming bill also does not include a provision that would require a constitutional amendment to expand gambling in Florida, but that is forthcoming. Gaetz said he plans to put forward such a proposal, an idea the House speaker has promoted. (It) would take the power to regulate gaming away from the Legislature and give the power to the people, Gaetz said. The constitutional requirement would set up a situation where if Bay County residents wanted slots, voters in Miami would have a say, as well as voters in every other part of the state. Gaetz said thats a good thing because expanded gaming affects the brand of the state of Florida. We market Florida as a brand and so the activities within our state either enhance or tarnish that brand no matter where we live, he said. S tate Rep.  Jimmy Patro nis doesnt sit on the gaming committee and said he wasnt prepared to take a position on the constitutional amendment idea, which would require 60 percent voter approval to expand gaming. Patronis, however, does know he doesnt want more slots, casinos or betting tracks in the state. As the status quo currently exists under Florida law, I am content with the current environment, he said. I do not like the idea of any further expansion of gaming. The Panama City Republican said he couldnt support the Senates primary gaming bill with its plan for destination casinos. A separate Senate bill also includes a constitutional amendment requirement for future gaming. In Ebros case, Patronis endorsed an older method used for Miami-Dade and Broward counties slots. It rst required statewide voter approval and then local voter approval. He sympathized with Washington County voters plight, but held rm on his position. I think the exercise that they went through does tell the Legislature and it does tell the voters that this region is interested in slots, he said, adding, but based on the current status of the (state) constitution to my interpretation and also the governors and the attorney generals (it) does not make them eligible for slots.SPECIAL TO TT HE NEWs SAfter decades of being a readily recognized icon on Chipleys Main Street, the old Kings Discount Drugs building was torn down March 6. Kings is relocated next door to the old building in the old Movie Gallery location and is still a popular shop for local sportsman, as well as local pharmacy. At left, Travis Grifn of Grifn Heavy Equipment operated the backhoe during the demolition. SPECIAL TO TT HE NEWs SComputer Island at 1362 N. Railroad Ave. celebrated its ofcial grand opening March 5 with a ribbon-cutting. Store owners Robin and Oliver Reichert offer computer sales, service and a caf. Computer Island is open Monday through Wednesday and on Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. MAPS from page A1and with some dating back more than a decade. Twenty-four properties tracts in Caryville are still classied as residential though they were part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency buyout in 1994. The buyout followed the wake of the Great Flood of 94, which crested at about 29-feet, submerged Caryville underwater, left homes nearly worthless and became the catalyst for the towns population to drop from 1,500 residents to less than 200. Forty-one properties, classied as Agriculture/ Silviculture, belong to Northwest Florida Water Management and should be classied as Conservation. The bulk of the proposed amendments to the Future Land Use Map is found in 396 tracts in Sunny Hills, nearly all designated as Agriculture/ Silviculture, which should be classied for Sunny Hills Mixed Use, including various residential classications. This FLUM is severely out of date, DeRuntz said. This really should be an annual process. Landowners need not fear their land classications will change without notice, however. Public hearings will be held, and the planning commission vows to work diligently to keep residents informed. I think we should lter the list and concentrate on businesses rst, said board member David Morris at the meeting. We should keep property owners informed before we make any changes so they have a chance to attend the hearings. Morris also suggested taking the proposed changes in smaller sections to help avoid confusion. We should focus on one distinct area before going into right or left eld, Morris said. We need to do this in smaller bites and notify the property owners so we can get their feedback. Morris also stressed the importance of focusing on correcting nonconformities rst and concentrating on future land use maps at a later date. The planning commission meets again in regular session at 5 p.m. April 1. COURTEs S Y OF THE STATE AA RCHIVEs S OF FF LORIDA, FF LORIDA MEm M ORYMany properties up for reclassication are holdovers from the Great Flood of 1994, after which FEMA bought up affected property.

Special to The NewsTALLAHASSEE In an effort to help grow small businesses in the state, the Florida Department of Transportation will implement a number of strategies to further support small businesses: Increase the percentage of small business reserved professional services contracts from 10 percent to 15 percent (the 10 percent goal for construction and maintenance contracts will remain the same); Increase the small business reserved project amount threshold from $1 million maximum value to $1.5 million maximum (the BDI project amount originally started at $500,000); Increase the threshold for requiring an overhead audit on professional services contracts from $250,000 to $500,000, which reduces the cost of doing business with the department; Incentivize larger rms to team with Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) and small businesses in types of services where they have been traditionally under-utilized; Simplify the small business size standard for construction/maintenance to one size threshold of $15 million instead of multiple thresholds based on the type of work (the professional services size standard was previously simplied to one threshold of $6.5 million); Expand the Small Business database that currently has professional services rms to include construction, maintenance and other contractual services rms. The DBE program is designed for minority or female owned small businesses; over the last two years, the department has awarded directly or indirectly approximately $800 million or 11.40 percent of the total contracting dollars to DBEs. Since the inception of the BDI, the department has reserved 260 contracts totaling approximately $86 million and this number is expected to increase signicantly over the next year. FDOT Secretary Ananth Prasad said, The department recognizes that small businesses are the backbone of Floridas economy and a vital component in getting Floridians back to work. The objective of FDOTs Business Development Initiative is to help foster the growth of small businesses that contract with the department. Under this initiative, the department reserves selected contracts for small businesses. The program not only helps to distribute more contracting dollars to small businesses but also provides signicant opportunities for small businesses to serve as prime contractors with the department instead of as subcontractors. The ultimate goal is for small businesses to grow so they can hire more employees and compete with larger contractors outside of the BDI program. For more information, visit the Business Development Initiative link on www.dot.state..us/equalopportunityofce. Interested small businesses can also email suggestions, comments and questions regarding the program to fdot.bdi@dot.state..us. Special to The NewsOn March 5, Club member/Chaplain Charlotte Sapp was awarded a Lifetime Membership Certicate for the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs Inc. by Chipley Garden Club. We are so happy to be able to honor Charlottes dedication to our club, Club President Karen Roland said. Charlotte retired from teaching elementary school in 1999 and immediately became an active member of Chipley Garden Club. Vonceil Coggin was very instrumental in getting me into the club. She told me I would love it, and I do, Sapp said. Teaching youth continues to remain Charlottes focus. She has taught hundreds of students oral design, painting, crafting, basket weaving and so much more. In addition to her other activities in the club, these days Charlotte is involved in planning for the annual Youth Fair and sharing oral design and the art of dish gardens with students at Kate Smith Elementary School. Charlotte has been my mentor for years. She held my hand as I began teaching and encouraged me to join the garden club upon my retirement. Shes a wonderful friend and a wonderful story teller. I have a story about that has been the beginning of many of Charlottes real life tales, Second Vice President/ Youth Chair Linda Pigott said. Several other club members also said, Im here because of Charlotte, too, Following presentation of the Lifetime Membership certicate, special membership card and a pin bearing the FFGC logo, Karen Roland read an original poem written in Charlottes honor praising her gardening expertise, her willingness to give of herself, her patience and the joy she brings to others.

The search began after Holley reportedly showed up at a residence on Greenhead Road, where his wife had been staying after an argument with him. A domestic incident ensued. According to reports, Holley then got in his vehicle and drove it directly at another individual on the property. The intended victim, who was armed with a 12-gauge shotgun, red and shot through the driver’s side door, striking Holley in the leg with buckshot. Holley later reportedly told family members he “wouldn’t be taken alive” and would “kill anyone who tried to arrest him”. Holley, who was also wanted on unrelated charges by the Panama City Beach Police Department and for grand theft by Escambia County, was captured near his home Thursday morning after SWAT teams from the WCSO, Bay County Sheriff’s Of ce, the BCSO helicopter, and the U.S. Marshals Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force spent more than 24 hours searching both sides of the Washington and Bay county line near Ebro. The arrest came after a physical altercation that resulted in both Holley and two law enforcement of cer receiving minor injuries after the suspect dove out of a plate glass window to attempt escape and then fought with of cers. Holley was booked into the Bay County Jail and is charged with aggravated assault and domestic battery in Washington County, four counts of resisting arrest with violence, and two counts of battery on a law enforcement of cer. Stolen property was also reportedly recovered from his home. Local fugitive in custody Volume 89, Number 94 House bill won’t help bring slots to Ebro By MATTHEW BEATON 522-5114 | @matthewbeaton mbeaton@pcnh.com TALLAHASSEE — Comprehensive gaming legislation in the state House won’t help Ebro Greyhound Park’s quest for slots. The bill (HB 1383), led earlier this week, re ects House Speaker Will Weatherford’s low view of the gaming industry and desire to avoid expanding it. The bill does not include a plan for two South Florida destination casinos, as does a similar Senate measure (SPB 7052), nor would it allow slots in several counties, including Washington, which have approved them by voter referenda. Instead, the bill would overhaul Florida statutes, cleaning up the codes and adding a Gaming Control Commission to regulate the industry. Gaming Committee Chairman Rob Schenck, R-Spring Hill, led the 411-page bill, sure to be the chief piece of legislation his committee hears during the 2014 session. The bill is silent on the slot machine issue, but state Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach, said he is “open-minded” about Ebro’s situation because voters already have approved them. He is running for an open state Senate seat See BILL A2 By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY — A Chipley business owner is in jail this week after the Washington County Drug Task Force concluded a lengthy investigation into allegations a local store was selling narcotics to “select customers”. Ahmad Shibly Raihan, partial owner of Chipley Foodmart at the corner of State Road 77 and South Boulevard was arrested late in the afternoon on March 4. According to the Chipley Police Department, the store was selling synthetic marijuana under the label of “Scooby Snax Potpourri.” Synthetic marijuana is illegal to sell over the counter, but a search of the store led to the discovery of both marijuana and synthetic marijuana concealed in the storage room of the business. The synthetic marijuana was individually packaged for sale, according to reports, and not displayed, but rather sold to “select customers” during normal business hours. Raihan, who was the manager on duty at the time of the search, was arrested and booked into the Washington County Jail on charges of sell of synthetic narcotic, possession of synthetic narcotic with intent to sell and possession of marijuana. “Synthetic marijuana is an illegal substance that is commonly mistaken as being legal and has become a popular alternative for our young people to consume as opposed to cannabis,” said Chipley Police Chief Kevin Crews. “These substances are sold in stores as ‘potpourri’ in varying amounts and actually marketed as a fragrance, but its real intent is to be consumed. Synthetic marijuana is extremely dangerous to our children, and those who choose to consume this illegal substance.” “The Chipley Police Department has made efforts to rid our local stores of these substances,” he added. “I ask if anyone knows of persons or businesses that are still selling these substances, or of any other criminal activity, to report these activities to the Chipley Police Department at 638-6310, or to remain anonymous, call the Crime Stoppers of Washington County at 638-TIPS.” Chipley PD: Local business was selling narcotics AHMAD RAIHAN RANDALL HOLLEY Walk, Run, Glow 5K CHIPLEY — The Northwest Florida Community Hospital and the Washington County Rehab and Nursing Center will sponsor “Walk, Run, Glow 5K: Lighting the way for a Cure” at 6 p.m. March 15 at NFCH.

A8 By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY — The Washington County Planning Commission is looking to change nonconforming land use classi cations in an effort to update county land use maps. County Senior Planner Mike DeRuntz said the goal is to correct some inconsistencies. “As designed, the proposed changes won’t change how properties can be used,” DeRuntz said. “It will only serve the purpose of cleaning up the map and re ecting more accurately how property is actually used. This will not affect property tax assessments in any way, and most of the proposed classi cations won’t affect individual properties.” Planning Commission board member Roger Hagan explained the concept in simple terms during the March 4 Planning Commission meeting. “If a room has a broom, mop and (other cleaning supplies) in it, it’s a broom closet, no matter if you call it a dining room or anything else. All we’re wanting to do is identify the land as what it’s already being used for, essentially calling the broom closet a broom closet.” Currently, there are 900 parcels up for reclassi cation, totaling more than 18,000 acres Planning Commission hopes to bring property into conformity OUTDATED MAPS See MAPS A2 CAROL KENT | The News Senior Planner Mike DeRuntz reviews nonconforming properties on the county map.

Gaetz, a member of the gaming committee, said he wants to give the will of the voters “special deference.” He said he wasn’t sure if he would support the Ebro slots, though, and would need time to review the par ticulars on the situation — the games that would exist, the tax rate and the benet to the community. On the whole, Gaetz said he is against expand ing gambling not because of moral qualms, but because it’s not a sound economic development strategy most of the time. He is particu larly opposed to destina tion resorts and said he’s “very skeptical” that putting big ones in South Florida would benet his Panhandle constituents. “The money doesn’t sleep overnight in many of the communities where ca sinos exist,” he said. “The money is shipped off to, you know, Las Vegas or Asia.” The House bill also does not address decoupling — which would end a re quirement that greyhound tracks run a minimum num ber of races to operate a card room — or mandatory injury reporting for tracks. But Gaetz sees those issues as top priorities and will ght for them in the Gaming Committee, he said. Gaetz also said it’s para mount to keep decoupling away from special inter est groups that might bog it down and prevent its passage. “Most legislators — and even most industry stake holders — agree that de coupling is the right thing to do,” he said. The gaming bill also does not include a provi sion that would require a constitutional amendment to expand gambling in Flor ida, but that is forthcoming. Gaetz said he plans to put forward such a proposal, an idea the House speaker has promoted. “(It) would take the power to regulate gaming away from the Legislature and give the power to the people,” Gaetz said. The constitutional re quirement would set up a situation where if Bay Coun ty residents wanted slots, voters in Miami would have a say, as well as voters in ev ery other part of the state. Gaetz said that’s a good thing because expanded gaming “affects the brand of the state of Florida.” “We market Florida as a brand and so the activities within our state either en hance or tarnish that brand no matter where we live,” he said. State Rep.  Jimmy Patro nis doesn’t sit on the gam ing committee and said he wasn’t prepared to take a position on the constitution al amendment idea, which would require 60 percent voter approval to expand gaming. Patronis, however, does know he doesn’t want more slots, casinos or betting tracks in the state. “As the status quo cur rently exists under Florida law, I am content with the current environment,” he said. “I do not like the idea of any further expansion of gaming.” The Panama City Repub lican said he couldn’t sup port the Senate’s primary gaming bill with its plan for destination casinos. A sepa rate Senate bill also includes a constitutional amendment requirement for future gaming. In Ebro’s case, Patronis endorsed an older method used for Miami-Dade and Broward counties’ slots. It rst required statewide voter approval and then lo cal voter approval. He sym pathized with Washington County voters’ plight, but held rm on his position. “I think the exercise that they went through does tell the Legislature — and it does tell the voters — that this region is interested in slots,” he said, adding, “but based on the current status of the (state) constitution — to my interpretation and also the governor’s and the attorney general’s — (it) does not make them eligible for slots.”SPECIAL TO TT HE NEWs S After decades of being a readily recognized icon on Chipley’s Main Street, the old King’s Discount Drugs building was torn down March 6. King’s is relocated next door to the old building in the old Movie Gallery location and is still a popular shop for local sportsman, as well as local pharmacy. At left Travis Grifn of Grifn Heavy Equipment operated the backhoe during the demolition. SPECIAL TO TT HE NEWs S Computer Island at 1362 N. Railroad Ave. celebrated its ofcial grand opening March 5 with a ribbon-cutting. Store owners Robin and Oliver Reichert offer computer sales, service and a caf. Computer Island is open Monday through Wednesday and on Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. MAPS from page A1 and with some dating back more than a decade. Twenty-four properties tracts in Caryville are still classied as “residen tial” though they were part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency “buy out” in 1994. The buyout followed the wake of the “Great Flood of ’94,” which crested at about 29-feet, submerged Caryville un derwater, left homes nearly worthless and became the catalyst for the town’s popu lation to drop from 1,500 residents to less than 200. Forty-one properties, classied as Agri culture/ Silviculture, belong to Northwest Florida Water Management and should be classied as Conservation. The bulk of the proposed amendments to the Future Land Use Map is found in 396 tracts in Sunny Hills, nearly all designated as Agriculture/ Silviculture, which should be classied for Sunny Hills Mixed Use, in cluding various residential classications. “This FLUM is severely out of date,” DeRuntz said. “This really should be an annual process.” Landowners need not fear their land classications will change without notice, however. Public hearings will be held, and the planning commission vows to work diligently to keep residents informed. “I think we should lter the list and con centrate on businesses rst,” said board member David Morris at the meeting. “We should keep property owners informed be fore we make any changes so they have a chance to attend the hearings.” Morris also suggested taking the pro posed changes in smaller sections to help avoid confusion. “We should focus on one distinct area before going into right or left eld,” Morris said. “We need to do this in smaller bites and notify the property owners so we can get their feedback.” Morris also stressed the importance of focusing on correcting nonconformities rst and concentrating on “future land use maps” at a later date. The planning commission meets again in regular session at 5 p.m. April 1. COURTEs S Y OF THE STATE AA RCHIVEs S OF FF LORIDA, FF LORIDA MEm M ORY Many properties up for reclassication are holdovers from the “Great Flood of 1994”, after which FEMA bought up affected property.

Special to The News TALLAHASSEE — In an ef fort to help grow small businesses in the state, the Florida Department of Transportation will imple ment a number of strate gies to further support small businesses: • Increase the percent age of small business re served professional ser vices contracts from 10 percent to 15 percent (the 10 percent goal for con struction and maintenance contracts will remain the same); • Increase the small business reserved project amount threshold from $1 million maximum value to $1.5 million maximum (the BDI project amount origi nally started at $500,000); • Increase the thresh old for requiring an over head audit on profes sional services contracts from $250,000 to $500,000, which reduces the cost of doing business with the department; • Incentivize larger rms to team with Disad vantaged Business En terprise (DBE) and small businesses in types of ser vices where they have been traditionally under-utilized; • Simplify the small business size standard for construction/maintenance to one size threshold of $15 million instead of multiple thresholds based on the type of work (the profes sional services size stan dard was previously simpli ed to one threshold of $6.5 million); • Expand the Small Business database that currently has professional services rms to include construction, maintenance and other contractual ser vices rms. The DBE program is designed for minority or female owned small busi nesses; over the last two years, the department has awarded directly or indi rectly approximately $800 million or 11.40 percent of the total contracting dol lars to DBEs. Since the inception of the BDI, the department has reserved 260 contracts totaling ap proximately $86 million and this number is expected to increase signicantly over the next year.” FDOT Secretary Ananth Prasad said, “The depart ment recognizes that small businesses are the back bone of Florida’s economy and a vital component in getting Floridians back to work.” The objective of FDOT’s Business Development Ini tiative is to help foster the growth of small businesses that contract with the de partment. Under this ini tiative, the department re serves selected contracts for small businesses. The program not only helps to distribute more contract ing dollars to small busi nesses but also provides signicant opportunities for small businesses to serve as prime contractors with the department instead of as subcontractors. The ultimate goal is for small businesses to grow so they can hire more employees and compete with larger contractors outside of the BDI program. For more information, visit the Business Devel opment Initiative link on www.dot.state..us/equa lopportunityofce. Inter ested small businesses can also email suggestions, comments and questions regarding the program to fdot.bdi@dot.state..us. Special to The News On March 5, Club member/Chaplain Charlotte Sapp was awarded a Lifetime Membership Certicate for the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs Inc. by Chipley Garden Club. “We are so happy to be able to honor Charlotte’s dedication to our club,” Club President Karen Roland said. Charlotte retired from teaching elementary school in 1999 and immediately became an active member of Chipley Garden Club. “Vonceil Coggin was very instrumental in getting me into the club. She told me I would love it, and I do,” Sapp said. Teaching youth continues to remain Charlotte’s focus. She has taught hundreds of students oral design, painting, crafting, basket weaving and so much more. In addition to her other activities in the club, these days Charlotte is involved in planning for the annual Youth Fair and sharing oral design and the art of dish gardens with students at Kate Smith Elementary School. “Charlotte has been my mentor for years. She held my hand as I began teaching and encouraged me to join the garden club upon my retirement. She’s a wonderful friend and a wonderful story teller. ‘I have a story about that’ has been the beginning of many of Charlotte’s real life tales,” Second Vice President/ Youth Chair Linda Pigott said. Several other club members also said, “I’m here because of Charlotte, too,” Following presentation of the Lifetime Membership certicate, special membership card and a pin bearing the FFGC logo, Karen Roland read an original poem written in Charlotte’s honor praising her gardening expertise, her willingness to give of herself, her patience and the joy she brings to others.
