Segers Cadet of the Year Award,” a recognition Segers will return to present at the program’s awards ceremony each year to a cadet selected by his or her commanding ofcers as exemplifying Seger’s legacy of excellence and commitment to duty and country. Seger noticeably was moved by the gesture, but kept his emotions at bay until the grand nale in which cadets unveiled the naming of the program’s ring range in his honor: the 1st Sgt. Lonnie R. Segers Marksmanship Training Facility. Segers also was presented with the Department of the Army’s Commanders Award for Public Service, with Col. Brent E.

The congregation hopes to make this an annual event. PP HOTOS SS PEc C IAL TO THE NEWS GROUNDBREAKING from page A1 community to the event. Festivities included the performance of the “Star Spangled Banner” by Chipley High School’s “Spirit of the Tiger Band, as well as performances by the KMS Chorus. Sen. Don Gaetz and Rep. Marti Coley, both who helped facilitate funding for the new school, each took a moment to congratulate the students. “You children are leading the way,” Gaetz said in reference to the school’s recent Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) scores. “Congratulations on your FCAT scores.” Rep. Coley echoed Sen. Gaetz’s sentiment, adding, “Look what you did where you were. You didn’t have the best facility. I can’t wait to see what you do when everything is new, bright, and shiny.” School board member Terry Ellis reminded those in attendance the school isn’t just a positive step for local education; it will also give a boost to the local economy. “This is economic development,” Ellis said. “A huge construction project is about to begin. It will make a difference for students and teachers, but local businesses will also see the benet.” The site for the new school is between South Boulevard and Brickyard Road. Construction is expected to cost about $33 million and will be funded over a three-year period. The state has agreed to contribute $9.2 million to the project, with the county funding $4.4 million dollars in capital outlay funds over the course of the three years. A construction manager will be selected within coming weeks, and the project is slated for completion sometime in 2016. PHOTOS BY CAROL KENT | The News The crowd was treated to a performance by the KMS Chorus at a groundbreaking ceremony for the KMS facility. even though the policy states that the public works employee is to handle animal control, it does not state how vicious animals are to be treated,” Tagert said. “He has had no training or guidance on how to deal with a vicious animal. If there was a misre or if someone were hit by a stray bullet, then that would have changed this situation dramatically.” According to paperwork submitted by Woods, he was responding to a call about a vicious dog. Upon arrival on the scene, he found a gray bulldog “barking and snapping.” He knocked on the door of the residence the dog was near but received no answer. The dog followed Woods as he continued to another resident’s house. There, he was told the dog belonged to someone who was in Tampa, and the resident requested something “be done about the dog.” Woods reported he then crossed the yard to speak with Glenn Chefeld, who said the dog attacked him, as well as two other individuals. Woods was on his way back to the truck when the dog bit him. Woods said that’s when he went back to his personal truck, took out his personal gun and picked up another employee before returning to the scene where the dog was. Woods reported when they got out of the truck, the dog “charged” at them, and he felt it necessary to open re. He shot three times in the dog’s direction before the dog ran off. The employees were unable to nd the dog, and Woods went back to City Hall where he was instructed to go to the hospital to seek treatment for the dog bite. “The only thing I see wrong is that he went back to his personal vehicle, grabbed a personal weapon and returned to the scene without notifying the Washington County Sheriff’s Ofce,” Councilman Joey Brock said. Tagert stated if there was a policy in place for employee handling of a vicious animal, then there would have been something for Woods to refer. After much discussion, the council agreed to have Tagert draft a policy for employee training and procedure for handling potentially dangerous animals, as well as a policy about employees and rearms, to be brought before the council during Monday night’s workshop for further discussion. Council agreed until a policy is put into place and employees are trained in that policy, the city will rely on Washington County Animal Control to handle any other animal issues. Council also stated no disciplinary action would be taken against Woods.

Special to the News The Chipley High School “Spirit of the Tiger” Band performed on the plaza of the Thomas Jefferson Memorial on Friday, May 23, as part of the National Memorial Day Concert Series in Washington, D.C. The band received the invitation to represent our state in this unique opportunity for thousands of patriotic Americans to come together and honor those who have sacriced so much in service to our country. The National Memorial Day Celebration honors all those who have served in uniform from the American Revolution to Operation Iraqi Freedom and seeks to educate the public about the meaning of this hallowed day. Not merely an event for Washington, the National Memorial Day Celebration is an event for the entire country, which seeks to draw the attention of Americans to the real meaning for the holiday: honoring those who have served, and died, to preserve our liberties. “We are extremely humbled to be asked to participate in this event honoring those who have served our country,” CHS Band Director Richard Davenport said. “We received this invitation based on the incredible tradition of excellence established by former members of the band. Worthy of that tradition, the band’s musical tribute of patriotic music certainly represented our small community and school with the utmost dignity and respect for our nation’s military heroes.” The band said they were grateful for the incredible support of the Chipley community in helping to fund the majority of the cost of the trip; the rest was raised by the individual band members and Band Boosters. The band boarded two charter busses early on May 22 to make the 16-hour trip to Washington, D.C. After their performance on Friday, the group spent time walking through the monuments on the National Mall, followed by an evening cruise down the Potomac River on the “Spirit of Mount Vernon.” Saturday was lled with the students visiting the historical museums and government buildings on the east end of the Mall, Arlington National Cemetery and ending with a night tour of the Iwo Jima, Air Force and Pentagon memorials. The band members also visited the historic settlements of Jamestown and Colonial Williamsburg before making the trek back to Chipley. The members of the Chipley Band would like to thank Chipley High School, the Washington County School District, the Chipley business community, fans, parents, and our alumni for the tradition of support for our school band program. The “Spirit of the Tiger” Band is honored to positively represent our community everywhere they perform. The band will close out the school year with performances at the KMS Ground Breaking Ceremony and CHS Graduation this week, followed by preseason rehearsals for next year’s marching band. 1360 BRICK YA RD RO AD I CH IPLE Y, FL 32428 I 8 50 638 1 610 I WWW .N FCH .O RG O er ed on the NFCH Ca mpus at 1360 Brick ya rd Road Ch iple y Fo r appoin tmen t call (850) 638-3 771 Pr ov idin g mode rn -ad va nc ed co mpr he ns iv e, med ica l hea lth car e fo r all wo men of a ll a ge s b eg inn ing fr om bef or e ado lesc enc e an d te ena ge ye ars thr oug h ad ulth ood pr eg nanc y, men opa use an d post menop ause Al l Ab out Wo men, OB -G YN : St ands to re mind us of our dedica te d en thusiastic co mmitmen t to people thr ough the medical specialt y, Obst etr ics and Gynec ology (O BGY N), tha t is all about pr ot ec ting and re st or ing health in the wo man ’s fe male ’s re pr oduc tiv e sy st em and to the person in side the pa tien t re ce iving the car e.

Board of County Commissioners, Thursday, May 29, Eleanor Dietrich, Florida Panhandle Wildower Alli ance liaison with the Florida Depart ment of Transportation, met with members of Washington County’s Master Gardeners Program and Chi pley Garden Club at the Washington Co. Library/Chipley Branch. Dietrich shared with the group, “Washington County is No. 27 in Florida counties to pass a Wild ower Resolution and we’re look ing forward to providing assistance and watching Washington County’s roadsides ‘bloom’ with native wild owers. Dustie Moss of District III Florida Dept. of Transportation has a vision to ‘green’ this area and today the rst step has been taken to help her make it happen.” Master Gardener/Chipley GC 1st VP Glenda Wilson agreed, “Our lo cal garden clubs are all very excited about this project. Wildowers al ready grow on many of our roadsides – they are beautiful, they attract visi tors to our area, and they provide nec tar or pollen for bees and butteries which results in productive farms and forests. Together we plan to identify roadsides that need protection and to plant additional native wildowers areas. We will also support modied roadside mowing which encourages wildower growth.” Library Director Renae Rountree stated, “Back in the 1500s Ponce de Leon named this land La Florida, Land of Flowers, because of the abundance of native wildowers. Come by the library and check out our selection of books on wildowers, native plants, the history of Florida, and Ponce de Leon’s travels in our area.” The Florida Panhandle Wildower Alliance is an informal network of regional wildower enthusiasts that advocates for conservation of wild owers in the state’s Eastern Pan handle.

Col. Wayne Merritt of Civil Air Patrol’s Maine Wing, who rst involved CAP in Wreaths Across America. “We are able to speak freely and go as we please. We must never stop thanking our veter ans. They must never be forgotten.” By placing remem brance wreaths on the graves of military veterans during the holiday season, Wreaths Across America seeks to remember, honor and teach others about the courage and sacrices of the men and women who have served in the armed forces. Wreaths Across America culminates last year on December 14 with an estimated 10,000 volun teers placing wreaths on gravesites at Arlington Na tional Cemetery and many of Arlington’s memorials, including the Tomb of the Unknowns. Simultaneous ceremonies will be held throughout the day at 800plus veterans’ cemetery or war memorial sites in all 50 states, as well as 20 foreign locations. Civil Air Patrol is the largest group fundrais ing for Wreaths Across America, and its members also lead or participate, often with color and honor guards, in many of the cer emonies at war memori als and cemeteries held nationwide and abroad. Ofcers and cadets from nearly 400 CAP squadrons, including the Tyndall-Pan ama Composite Squadron, are signed up to organize National Wreaths Across America Day observances on Saturday, December 13, 2014 in their regions, states and communities. “CAP members help lead the way by selling wreath sponsorships and coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies,” said Col. J.D. Ellis, CAP’s 2013 national Wreaths Across America coordinator. “Like Wreaths Across America, we take pride in honoring those who have served our country,” said Ellis. “This is our way of expressing our apprecia tion and paying tribute for the sacrices made for our country by our service men and women. “The TyndallPanama Composite Squad ron commander said “We agreed to accept WAA’s 3 wreaths for the price of 2, $15 each, instead of using the program for a fundrais ing event.” The local ceremony will be conducted on Dec. 13at the Lynn Haven Cemetery on Highway 389 near the intersection of Highway 390. “The exact location and time will be announced closer to that date” stated Captain Charlie Walker the Squadron Commander.

Faith eventsEVENTS Local Civil Air Patrol salutes veterans By JE nnNN Y S tT RICKLA nN D Special to The News Roulhac Middle School’s annual trip to Washington D.C. began Monday, May 12 as the buses rolled out of the parking lot with 61, energetic, bright-eyed, eighth grade students and six teacher chaper ones enthusiastic about visiting our na tion’s capital. Coaches Greg Mathis and Mike Gates choreographed the ve day itinerary of historical proportions. The anticipated schedule included sightseeing treasures as early as the bus passed them. For ex ample, when we passed the Pentagon, the story of the 911 tragedy resurfaced along with the signicance of the Pentagon shaped building. Later in the week, the students visited the Pentagon Memorial grounds reading the names of the souls lost that day. It was a somber moment knowing the students were standing on recent history that changed all of their lives. As the buses traveled toward the beautiful D.C. city limits, the historical skyline of familiar landmarks stretched across the horizon as if welcoming its citizens into the heart of our nation. The students traveled sans bus through the National Mall area which included the up close and personal walk ing tour to the WWII Memorial, The U. S. Capital Building (students were fortu nate to obtain a ticket for an inside tour of the House of Representatives Chamber and sit in the gallery courtesy of Repre sentative Steve Southerland), The Mu seum of Natural History, Air and Space Museum, The National Archives, Ford’s Theatre, The National Zoo, The National Cathedral, Arlington National Cemetery, a Night Tour of the Korea Veterans Me morial, The Vietnam Veterans Memorial, The Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) Memorial, The Lincoln Memorial, Wash ington Monument, Thomas Jefferson Memorial and a drive by the White House and the United Nation’s Embassies. The birth of America’s Independence (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) became a day’s excursion where the students retraced many Founding Fathers’ foot steps in this great city. Students toured the Philadelphia Historic District includ ing the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Christ Church, Ben Franklin’s grave, and Betsy Ross’ house. A memorable sight was Coach Mathis taking the students to the Philadelphia Museum of Art…a.k.a. “The Rocky Steps” and convincing the students to run up all 72 stone steps of the location of the lming of the Rocky Movie. A group photo of the student’s standing by the eight foot statue commemorates the breathless event. On the way home, Friday, May 16,stu dents stopped by Thomas Jefferson’s home, Monticello, in Charlottesville, Va., and discovered the many talents of our fourth President of the United States. Whether it was by bus or foot, the tour ing of Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Vir ginia’s historical sites along with the won derful commentary of our Tour Guides, Mathis and Gates, all students survived the fast-paced history lessons and made memories to be treasured forever.
