And Mobile Too! Connect With Us 24/7 Saturday, MARCH 24 2012 By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The stomach bug that made Northwest Florida Reception Center inmates sick in February was identi ed as being caused by noroviruses, health department director Rick Davis said Tuesday. Noroviruses are a group of related, single-stranded RNA, non-enveloped viruses that cause acute gastroenteritis in humans. The most common symptoms of acute gastroenteritis are diarrhea, vomiting and stomach pain, according to the Centers for Disease Control website. It is the same thing we see a lot on cruise ships, Davis said. Washington County Health Department in Chipley tested inmates at the Northwest Florida Reception Center after 65 inmates became ill with stomach bug symptoms Feb. 20. Symptoms included nausea and diarrhea, Davis said, and the outbreak lasted for a couple of days. Davis pointed out stomach viruses are not u-like in that they do not involve the lungs or respiratory system. Flu is short for in uenza, which is a respiratory disease. Testing was performed via stool sample, and the results came back negative for bacterial or parasitic infections, Davis said. The health department did not test the reception center kitchen. Several calls to the Department of Corrections were not returned. The health department tests industrial kitchens, such as schools and hospitals, Davis said, but the department does not test Department of Corrections facilities. The outbreak was limited to 65 inmates, and cleared up in a day or two, Davis said. Considering the number of inmates there, 65 isnt a big number. According to the reception centers website, the maximum capacity for the facility is 1,303. In November, more than 400 inmates from several different blocks as well as several food service employees reported similar symptoms, including diarrhea. Virus IDd in Reception Center outbreak From Staff Reports CHIPLEY The Kiwanis Club of Chipley will hold its 57th annual Pancake Dinner from 5-7 p.m. April 12 at the Kate M. Smith Elementary School Cafeteria. As in recent years, there will be delivery service for group orders, in addition to the carryout packages available during the dinner. Plenty of seating is available for those wishing to dine-in as a group or individually. It is a great way to start the day with friends and contribute to programs for the youth of Washington County. Kiwanis is celebrating its 71st year in Washington County. Throughout the year, the Kiwanis Club of Chipley conducts fundraising events such as the ever-popular Dinner Theatre, the holiday fruit sale, the Marvin Engram Memorial Golf Tournament, and others. Funds raised are used to provide grants and donations to over 30 organizations and events focused on the youth of Washington County. Additionally, scholarships are provided each year for several students pursuing a college education.

All My Sons on stage tonight From Staff Reports CHIPLEY The Spanish Trail Playhouse is presenting All My Sons at 7 p.m. today and 2 p.m. Sunday. The play, written by Arthur Miller in 1947, is a drama about a manufacturer of faulty war materials and is directed by Rosalyn Scott. All My Sons kicks off the fth season for the playhouse, president Kevin Russell said in an introduction to the program. It has been ve years since the curtain was raised and the actors entered the stage. As the fth season begins, I am reminded of what has come before. Within those years the theater has been renovated completely by community support; 17 productions were offered (four of which were sold out); dozens of individuals have had their acting debuts; hundreds have seen performances; and memories were created and new friends were made. Scott is the planning director for the Spanish Trail Playhouse. Her past performances with the playhouse include Stroll Down Broadway, Curious Savage, Nunsense Jamboree, Some Enchanted Evening and Chipley County Christmas. She has directed two church productions. This is her directorial debut with Spanish Trail Playhouse, according to the program. This has been a privilege and an honor for me to be able to direct this wonderful and talented cast of All My Sons, Scott said. Arthur Miller is the Pulitzer Prize winning author of Death of a Salesman. He also wrote a screenplay, The Mis ts, for his second wife, Marilyn Monroe. They were married from 1956 to 1961. Tickets are $12 adults, $10 seniors and $10 for students with ID. The Spanish Trail Playhouse is located at 680 Second St., Chipley. For more information, call 638-9113.

Highway 77, Lynn Haven, FL 33 Years of Service to Bay County FOR ALL YOUR FARM, LAWN & GARDEN NEEDS to show the proposed land-use designations, which are categories that state what county properties may or may not be used for. The designations range from agricultural/silvicultural to recreational, with ve subcategories of residential, two neighborhood commercial categories as well as general commercial and industrial. What we want to do is protect the character of the county, DeRuntz said. The categories are not considered zoning, but they are restrictions on usage meant to control what can, and what cannot, be located in certain areas. The categories themselves are fairly comprehensive. For example, in Neighborhood Commercial I, businesses that would be allowed are professional services and of ce, outdoor recreation, public/semipublic (institutional), public/semi-public general government, public/semi-public utility; indoor recreation centers, community centers and fraternal lodges, funeral homes and mortuaries, meat markets and bakeries, farm and garden supply, building supply, vehicle parts and accessories, retail sales stores. Neighborhood Commercial II includes all of the above, plus department stores, ea markets and trade shops. The most controversy in the meeting occurred around residential lots, especially those slated for agricultural/silvicultural where the requirements call for one residential dwelling unit per 10 acres. There are a lot of nonconforming properties in the county, DeRuntz said. There are cases of lots being subdivided among family members where the division does not meet county requirements. While the new map would not affect existing property divisions, once the land use map is nished and adopted then residents wanting to change the usage of their property would have to come through the county planning committee to have that new usage approved. DeRuntz said once the proposed map is nished, there will be a number of public hearings held around the county where residents can study the map and put their input into the process. After the hearings, those changes will be added to the map then in October or November hopefully the Board of County Commissioners will grant nal approval of the map. Were creating these designations so the county will have standards, DeRuntz said. A majority of the residential areas are already less than 10 acres per dwelling. As a result, the agri/silvi designation calls for a subdivisions of 4.5 acres per residence as an exception. Immediate family can have one dwelling per acre, according to the designation. The ideal is 4.5 acre properties on the roadways, DeRuntz said, with family dwellings being the exception. Looking at the maps, Tonya Pippin, planning committee chairwoman, asked DeRuntz How do we compare to other counties? Were unique, DeRuntz replied. By RICHARD DAVENPORT Special To The News CHIPLEY The Chipley High School was the place to hear great musicmaking March 8-9 as the music department hosted the annual Florida Bandmasters Association District 2 North Concert Band Music Performance Assessment. Along with bands from all over the central Panhandle, CHSs two bands performed their three concert selections before a large crowd and three judges in the CHS Performing Arts Auditorium. Each bands performance on stage was evaluated in the areas of Performance Fundamentals, Technical Preparation and Musical Effect. After the stage performance, each band moved to the Sightreading room where they were evaluated on their ability to perform a march and an overture that they never have seen before. The judges in each area rated each bands performance on a ve-point scale ranging from superior to poor. On stage, the CHS Concert Band, made up of mostly ninth graders, performed Dorchester March, Red River Valley and Shaker Variants and was rated superior by all judges. In sightreading, the band also was rated superior. The CHS Wind Ensemble also performed well, and received all superior ratings on stage and a superior in sightreading. The Wind Ensemble consists of members in 10th through 12th grades and performed Burma Patrol March, Blessed Are They That Mourn and Be Thou My Vision. Roulhac Middle Schools Concert Band also performed well under the baton of rst-year director Daniel McNeill and received and overall superior. Of the 24 bands participating in the assessment, only nine received straight superior ratings. Richard Davenport, director of bands at Chipley High School, praised the students in all three Chipley ensembles for their hard work in the classroom and ne performances at the District Assessment. Our community can be proud of the high standard of excellence that our band students will take into the community when they enter college and the workforce, he said. The future is bright. This years result con rms a tradition of excellence at Chipley High School, making this the 19th consecutive year the band has been rated superior at FBA District Concert Assessment. Davenport also thanked the many band parents and students who volunteered their time for the many responsibilities of hosting such a large event.

Special To The News CHIPLEY The Chipley Kiwanis Club met for its weekly luncheon at Pattillos Restaurant at the Washington-Holmes County Technical Center. Lunch was provided by the staff of the Washington-Homes County Technical Center. Before the program, the Kiwanis Youth Services Committee Chairman Dell Corbin presented Doreen Mead and Tonya Myers as check to assist with Project Graduation. The club rst heard from Bill Hudson of the Panama City Kiwanis Club. Hudson is the lieutenant governor of the Division 2 of the Kiwanis Clubs of Florida. Division 2 includes the clubs in Bonifay, Chipley, DeFuniak Springs, Graceville, Marianna, Panama City, Panama City Beach, Port St. Joe and St. Andrews (Panama City). Hudson spoke to the club about the importance of the Kiwanissponsored youth programs, the student clubs in the schools. He informed the club that the Key Clubs sponsored by Kiwanis are the largest clubs in the nations schools. Hudson also spoke of the need to reach and recruit Kiwanis members in the 18to 31year-old group. This is an age group that is mobile and technically savvy. One way in which the Kiwanis Clubs are reaching this age group is by forming e-Clubs. The members of a Kiwanis e-Club meet online and through Facebook to plan activities. They then have a social event once a month. The club next heard from Kyle Luke, the Panhandle administrator of Florida Baptist Childrens Homes. Luke is a graduate of the Florida Baptist College and was on the staff there for seven years. He is very familiar with this area. The Florida Baptist Childrens Home is a faithbased 510(c)(3) non-pro t organization dedicated to providing Christ centered services to children and their families. The primary activity of the organization is providing and assisting with foster care for children across the state. The Florida Baptist Childrens Home has six residential campuses across Florida in which foster children live in cottages with an adult couple. There usually are eight children to a cottage, and the adult couple lives with the children for two weeks at a time. The foster children attend school and the organization endeavors to facilitate a normal life with outside school activities and sports. Some of the foster children are adoptable, but many are not. The organization also places children into foster homes. The organization works with the state protective agencies, mostly the Department of Children and Families, to assist with children needing placement whether it is a traditional foster home or one of the residential campuses. In 2011, the Florida Baptist Childrens Homes placed 206 foster children on one of the residential campuses and 513 children into a foster home. In the panhandle, there were 63 children on campuses and 117 in foster homes. Other activities of the Florida Baptist Childrens Homes include counseling and adoption services for pregnant women, maternity counseling, prevention ministries, international childcare activities and programs promoting the sanctity of life. Instead of a Pancake Breakfast, this year the Kiwanis Club will sponsor a pancake supper from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, April 12, at Kate Smith Elementary School cafeteria. Tickets will be available. See any Kiwanis Club member to purchase your tickets. This is an excellent opportunity to purchase a takeout supper to take to, or enjoy after, the Thursday ball games.

Call 638-0212. Saturday, March 24, 2012 Over the years, Ive edited literally thousands of obituaries. In addition to being a journalist, Im associated with a company that processes obituary data. One obit that slipped across my desk just a few days ago was that of theologian Dr. William Hamilton. He passed away on Feb. 28, 2012. Im really dating myself with this one, but if youre my age or older, you may remember the public furor created by the 1966 article Is God Dead? in Time magazine. Those three words, printed on the cover of the magazine in vivid red against a stark black background, soon became regarded as symptomatic of the anti-authoritarian mood of the turbulent 1960s. Dr. Hamilton was its author. The article resulted in public outcry, including death threats against Dr. Hamilton and others. I was just a child then, but it caused such a stir that people were still discussing it many years later. It became the subject of innumerable sermons. But Hamiltons Death of God theology had predecessors. Friedrich Nietzsche had people talking about it in the 19th Century, and various philosophers and theologians had brought up the notion before that. Even Thomas Jefferson, in his infamous Jefferson Bible, literally took a razor to the Gospels, stripped away all of the supernatural elements, and rearranged the text to present the life and teachings of Christ with no references to Jesus divinity. Anyway, it was Dr. Hamilton who introduced death of God theology to a whole new generation. It was a complex philosophical position. Hamilton still cared about Jesus despite skepticism, saying, In his (Jesus) baptism, his teaching, his healings, his passion, death and resurrection in all of it, there is a demand laid on us, or an offer tendered, and it is the task of the Christian to embody that offer in his world, being as candid as he can about the difference between Jesus beliefs and his. Loved or reviled and he was both Hamilton became one of the poster boys for theological postmodernism. He wasnt alone. There were others associated with the same movement, both Christians and Jews. Hamilton and his colleagues paved the way for scores of current theologians, including John Shelby Spong, the retired Epsicopalian bishop who has publicly denied the virgin birth, the literal resurrection of Jesus and other doctrines that were once regarded as cardinal components of Christian doctrine. Spong isnt the only theologian to hold such (dis)beliefs. Theories are being developed right now in divinity schools that once would not have been publicly discussed. Several of my atheist friends ended up that way after enrolling in theological seminaries. They went off to become members of the clergy, and came home to never hold religious beliefs again. Hamilton once said, The death of God is a metaphor. We needed to rede ne Christianity as a possibility without the presence of God. Ive personally met several people who went this route and describe themselves as Christian atheists (a term often associated with Hamilton himself) or non-theistic Christians, meaning that they reject the supernatural and/ or religious aspects of Christianity while still accepting the moral teachings of Jesus. Their views of Christianity are unlikely to be shared by the average churchgoer. Some non-theistic Christians have been turned away by their churches (as happened at one point to Dr. Hamilton), or voluntarily gave up on church altogether, feeling that the overall focus of todays churches has little to do with the actual teachings of Christ. Whatever the case, the movement is once again increasing in popularity. Its not just happening in Christianity. Other religions are experiencing it too. For instance, Ive met non-theistic Jews, Pagans and Hindus. In addition to straining the limits of orthodoxy, such theological movements raise questions. How much doctrine one can reject and still claim to be religious at all? And at what point does a hopeful young soul go packing off to seminary, only to nd that the professors are more likely to believe in the Tooth Fairy than in God? These days, the more prestigious the seminary, the more nonbelievers one may nd staf ng it. But of course, there are still seminaries offering traditional, or even ultraconservative, approaches just as there are millions of people who believe in God despite an increasing crowd of highly educated nay-sayers. There are plenty of individuals and groups defending either side of the spectrum, whether radically liberal or staunchly conservative, with most people falling somewhere in between. One may agree or disagree with Dr. Hamiltons opinions. Its worth investigating his writings to learn more. But whatever the case, he has passed, and in doing so, leaves us talking once again about God. Some of the comments Ive read in response to news of his death have been quite heated, both for and against his viewpoints. People with controversial opinions can keep us talking even when theyre no longer with us. Discussing ideas, even ideas that might upset the status quo, is always a good thing. It keeps us thinking. For that alone, it was important for Hamiltons views to become part of the public discourse, and for his voice to be heard. But our own voices are equally important. Whatever viewpoint we choose to embrace, regardless of how seemingly risky, we have the right to follow this mans example and present our case publicly. Whether the court of popular opinion is ultimately swayed in our favor or not, the important thing is that we live in a society that offers freedom of expression. Sometimes, self-expression can come with de nite risks, as the late Dr. Hamilton found out after losing a prestigious teaching position because of his religious perspectives, but its still worth it. Looking back, Hamilton said, I wouldnt have gone in any other direction. I faced all my worries and questions about death long ago.
