sider, Steve?� asked Chairman Alan Bush. “It’s not anything any one commissioner has done,� Joyner said. “This is something I’ve considered for a while.� County Attorney Jeff Goodman said the board should consider calling a special meeting next week to appoint an interim county administrator. “It would be best to regroup, get our thoughts together, then look at appointing an interim administrator.�

CHIPLEY — The Washington County Board of County Commissioners discussed filling a few county positions and rescinded an early board action at Thursday’s BOCC meeting in Chipley. Senior Planner Mike DeRuntz asked the board to consider a list of candidates for the county planning commission. Commissioner Tonya Pippin will be stepping down from the panel in May, and a replacement is needed for her. “We have quite a few people who have expressed interest in serving on the commission, and I have been getting in touch with them to make sure they are still willing,� DeRuntz said. He noted that Pippin’s position is an “at-large� position, and can be filled with a resident from anywhere in the county. Commissioner Charles Brock asked if the open position had been advertised so that the public would know a commissioner was being sought. “Back in 2011 the county advertised for persons interested in serving on boards,� DeRuntz said. From the applications received in 2011, he had compiled a list of potential candidates for the planning commission. The board was asked to consider the names on the list and come back to the May meeting ready to discuss an appointment. “It would be great to have a full board,� DeRuntz said. The commissioners also discussed the county’s search for a public safety director. Chairman Alan Bush said he was concerned with the direction the search for a public safety director was taking. After Roger Hagan retired as public safety director in December, the commission voted to update the county’s organizational chart and move the Emergency Medical Services under the direction of the public safety director. Bush said he thought that the board may have acted precipitously in putting the EMS under the public safety director’s jurisdiction. “I never got a clear feeling from the board for what they wanted to do,� Bush said. He suggested the county move the EMS back out from under the direction of the public safety director. “We shouldn’t fill this position,� said Commissioner Joel Pate, who was celebrating his 75th birthday on Thursday. “This has been mishandled from the get-go.� County Attorney Jeff Goodman said that the board would have to rescind its previous action of changing the organizational chart, and that the job should be re-advertised and a new pool of candidates gathered and interviewed.

Garden Club to hear about garden snakes Special to the News CHIPLEY — Scott Sweeney, Park Specialist at Falling Waters State Park, will present a program on “Beneficial and Friendly Garden Snakes” at the May meeting of Chipley Garden Club.

BONIFAY — Holmes County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested two Chipley men on charges of meth possession and trafficking following a routine traffic stop on April 16, according to a Sheriff’s Office news release. Arrested were 19-year-old

Charles Howard Vincent of Chipley and his passenger, 19-yearold Bringham Ray Baxley of Chipley. Both men were arrested in connection with charges of possession of controlled substance (methamphetamine), trafficking in methamphetamine, manufacture of paraphernalia and

possession of marijuana less than 20 grams, according to the release. In the early morning hours of April 16, a Holmes County Deputy conducted a traffic stop for an equipment violation in the Pittman community. During the stop, Vincent and Baxley exhibited suspicious be-

Officials say the Thirsty Turtle Tavern in Caryville has been fined thousands of dollars for unlicensed liquor sales.

Thirsty Turtle fined for unlicensed alcohol sales From Staff Reports CHIPLEY — The Washington County Sheriff’s Office, in collaboration with State of Florida Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco, reported thousands of dollars in fines have been assessed against a Washington County business for unlicensed sale and service of liquor. According to a sheriff’s office news release, investigators received information that the Thirsty Turtle Tavern in Caryville was illegally

selling liquor to customers. During an inspection, investigators discovered advertisements for the sell of liquor displayed. In addition, bottles of liquor, wine, and Jell-O shots were found at the business. The establishment was assessed $4,000 in fines. Failure to pay fines could result in the revocation of the tavern’s license. The WCSO asks that anyone with information on illegal activity contact them at 638-TIPS (8477) or tips@ wcso.us.

joyner from page A1 Commissioner Joel Pate said he has been on the board since 2006, and Joyner has been the best county administrator the county has ever had. Abbott made a motion that the commissioners appoint Interim Human Resources Director Albert Davis as interim county administrator, but the motion was voted down 3-2, with Commissioners Lynn Gothard, Bush and Charles Brock voting against. “No discredit to you, Mr. Davis,” Bush said, “but I don’t think we want to have a knee-jerk reaction. “I’ve worked with about every county administrator this county has had, and Mr. Joyner has been one of the best,” said Public Services Director David Corbin. “It’s tearing at my heart to stand up here, and this is the first time I have ever done it. “I appreciate the job you’ve done, and I wish you the best,” Corbin said to Joyner. Goodman said he had learned quite a bit working with Joyner over the years. “I appreciate everything you’ve done for me, and for my family,” he said to Joyner. “If I had to rank the jobs in the county, the job of county administrator would have to be one of the most difficult,” Goodman told the commissioners. “Whoever sits in that seat next, deserves your respect.” “This is one of the biggest losses the county has ever suffered,” County EMS Director Randy Truette said of Joyner’s resignation. “He’s been the very best county manager I ever worked for, and not just in Washington County.”

would be conducted by the county administrator and the human resources director, Goodman said. “I was not comfortable with that decision of the board at that time,” Bush said of the organizational change. “The further it progressed, the less comfortable I got.” “I’m confused,” said Brock. “The EMS director was always the responsibility of the public safety director. Whoever moves into that spot should have the same responsibilities Roger Dale had.” Commissioner Todd Abbott said before EMS came under the direction of the county, back when it was still controlled by the hospi-

tal, the county’s long-range plan was that someday the EMS would be under the county’s public safety director’s control. “What I am hearing now is in contradiction to that,” Abbott said. “We’re asking, ‘did we do the right thing?’” “If we got the wrong person in that position, it could hurt two strong, well functioning departments,” Bush said. “Right now, we’ve bound our county administrator’s hands in forcing him to fill the position this way.” Commissioner Lynn Gothard asked if this meant they would hire the public safety director based on the old job description. Pate said that was correct. “The only problem I have

The commissioners voted to rescind their action of Jan. 24 and take the EMS out from under the direction of the public safety director, according to the organizational chart. Gothard and Brock voted against the change, while Abbott, Bush and Pate voted in favor. “I would like to see us have more discussion and some clarification,” said Abbott. Abbott said the commissioners’ actions were making it difficult for County Administrator Steve Joyner to do his job. “Mr. Joyner has a vacancy and he is authorized to fill this position,” Abbott said. “I think we have wrongfully taken away some of his options, and for that I apologize.”

Change: Part of the miracle of life Part of the miracle of life is that we’re constantly changing. You can likely name at least one way your life changed during the past year. It would be difficult to imagine the person whose life is so uneventful that nothing ever changes. Some changes occur every single day. We’re even changing on a cellular level. So when is the last time SHANNON you experienced SEYLER genuine change in Faithfully Yours your beliefs, habits or attitudes? Some people insist that their beliefs never change. If so, then those beliefs are dead. I once knew a man who proudly claimed that his religious beliefs hadn’t changed since he was five years old. That’s like being proud of graduating kindergarten but never accomplishing anything beyond that point. He was alive, but his ideas were dead. What would you think of a person who walked around town with a dead animal slung around his neck? You’d likely think he had lost his mind. But carrying around dead ideas makes no more sense than lugging around an animal carcass. If something is dead and decaying, why voluntarily carry it around with you? Some Evangelicals use the phrase “my walk with the Lord” to describe their spiritual progress. If you feel that you’re walking with Jesus, do you think he’s going to appreciate 80 years of standing in the same spot? Referring to spiritual momentum as a “walk” conveys the idea of forward motion.

NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION OF THE WEEK: The FSU Center for the Advancement of Human Rights Florida State University is educating the public about human rights issues and advocacy via its Center for the Advancement of Human Rights (CAHR.) The Center works to raise awareness of rights issues, including human trafficking, voter rights, immigration, international law and more. They operate multiple programs, including one that encourages law students to engage in pro bono legal service work. CAHR offers lectures, a book series and articles. They provide field placement opportunities for students who choose to work with rights-related issues, as well as offering human rights courses and being supportive of organizations that promote basic human rights not only in Florida, but around the world. FSU Center for the Advancement of Human Rights http://www.cahr.fsu.edu/ 426 West Jefferson St. Florida State University Tallahassee, FL 32301 (850) 644-4550 When we walk, we don’t expect to see the same scenery we saw one mile back. It would be a very strange walk, indeed, if we were always going backwards. Some of us walk our dogs farther than we walk our faith. If faith is a journey, some folks never make it past the starting gate. They’ll say a quick prayer, maybe have a brief religious experience, and that’s it for the rest of their lives. That’s a nice beginning, but it hardly qualifies as a journey. No one wins a race by running just one step. True, a beginning step is necessary to start a race, but in order to win, we have to keep moving forward. One way to ensure forward movement is to release resentment

about the past. Agonizing over the past is like carrying around roadkill. And given the statistics on the adverse effects of stress on health, harboring a grudge or worrying excessively can subtract years from your life. Don’t let the past control your present. You’ll never move forward by looking backward. In the race of life, don’t risk stumbling by constantly looking over your own shoulder. Keep your gaze straight ahead. Whatever your personal race may involve — religion, relationships, school, family or careers — the sure way to make progress is to keep moving forward at all costs.
