Planner presents Land Use Map By RANDAL SEYLER

638-0212 | @WCN_HCT CHIPLEY — Senior Planner Mike DeRuntz presented the Future Land Use Map and a number of amendment requests by landowners to the Washington County Planning Commission on Tuesday. “These property owners

would like to see changes to their properties, and although we have discussed these in workshops, we need a motion from the board before we can do anything,� DeRuntz said. Most of the properties are small areas, ranging from 1.07 to 5.13 acres, seeking usage changes from agricultural/silvicultural to either commercial or low/

medium density residential. Three of the requests are for parcels of 160, 160 and 237 acres. DeRuntz said the landowners had requested that as the county’s map was being updated, the usages of their properties be changed to reflect their requests. Typically a property owner goes before the commission and requests the usage

to be changed, and pays a fee of $750 to $1,500 depending on the size of the parcel, DeRuntz said. In 2012, DeRuntz held six public hearings at different locations around the county, and that is where he received input from landowners. “We were just given the requests to take into consideration,� DeRuntz said.

“It doesn’t mean we have to change them.� Commissioner Tonya Pippin, serving as chairwoman at her last meeting as a commissioner, said she was concerned with changing the usage without following the proper procedure. “I feel like if we do this, then we should request that

Garden therapy helps nursing center residents Special to the News CHIPLEY — During April, Chipley Garden Club members Marlene Ray and Sue Jefferson met with Activities Director Kim Pothoff of Washington Rehabilitation & Nursing Center and made plans to visit the center on May 6 to do a little garden therapy with the residents. Club members arrived with several varieties of seeds — cucumbers and squash, small tomato plants, peat pots, plant markers, pans, and soil. As the group planted residents chatted about farms from their youth and flower gardens in their past. Marlene shared her experiences with growing strawberries, peppers

and zucchinis on her farm in Central Florida and Sue talked about raising daylilies and hybridizing amaryllises. Evelyn Block, Assistant Activities Director, assisted as the residents enjoyed a little hands-on gardening of their own. In a couple of weeks after the seeds germinate and the plants are large enough to be moved outside, they will be planted into a plot prepared by the center. With a little sunshine and care, residents will be able to enjoy vegetables… fresh from their garden. To learn more about Chipley Garden Club’s activities in our community, contact President Karen Roland at 638-9968.

posting her 17th win of the season. Sewell said she hadn’t yet determined her starting pitcher Thursday, as Sikes sports a 7-0 record. Sewell said that the Bulldogs coaching staff was unable to scout Lafayette in the opening semifinal, as Liberty County was given that same time frame to prepare for its game with Taylor. Lafayette spotted Chipley an early 1-0 lead before rallying to reach the finals four the fourth time in the past seven years. The Tigers, who lost four straight

games early this season, finished 10-13 after a strong stretch run under first-year head coach Kami Fannin. Chipley scored its lone run to forge a brief lead in the top of the first inning. Sarah Gilbert had a leadoff walk, was sacrificed to second by Kari Waldrip and moved to third on an infield single by Kara Bush. Kendal Daniels followed with a sacrifice fly for her team-leading 22nnd RBI of the season, but that is all the production Chipley could muster against Hornets starter Lindsay O’Steen. The senior right-

hander pitched a four-hitter with five strikeouts. Bush had two hits for Chipley. Lafayette was led by freshman Lacey Swafford, who improved her .516 batting average with a triple, two singles and an RBI. Sydney Shows had two hits and knocked in a run and Kaleigh Law added two RBIs for the Hornets. Gilbert was the losing pitcher, replaced by Mallory Dean in the third inning when Lafayette scored its final three runs for a fourrun edge. Dean struck out six for the Tigers in 3-plus innings.

ThoseWe Remember Memorial Day 2013

Honor the special people who have touched your life – family, friends, Veterans – and have passed on in this special Memorial Day tribute. Share a favorite photo, memory or tribute message in this keepsake piece which publishes Wednesday, May 22nd in the News and Times-Advertiser. The Tribute will also be posted on our newspaper websites for 90 days.

“We should be concerned with the usage, and whether or not that usage is applicable to that property.” “The process of correcting the map is administrative,” said Jim Town, a local real estate broker. He said coloring in the map for future use doesn’t change the fair market value of the property or affect the county’s tax base, but the process protects the county in the future from zoning deviations, and can drive growth in critical areas. “You’re the gatekeepers for the future of the county,” Town said. “That is the most important function that the planning commission does.” Now that the properties have been discussed by the commissioners, the zoning change requests will be considered by the commission at no charge to the landowners, DeRuntz said Thursday. Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Ted

Everett told the commissioners to look at providing more industrial zoning on the future land use map on Tuesday. “I strongly suggest we look at some light industrial usage in southern Washington County,” Everett said. Ebro is a north-south and east-west corridor that is ripe for growth, Everett added. “It will come, it is inevitable. That will be a key area of economic growth in the future for Washington County.” It was Commissioner Pippin’s final meeting. She resigned from the board after 10 years of service as a planning commissioner. Everett congratulated Pippin on a job well done and thanked her for her service to the community. “It’s been an honor and a privilege to serve on the commission,” Pippin said. “It was not always easy, but it was a pleasure to be able to give back to the community.”

edy that, they held the entire service backwards. The altar call came first, and the opening hymn was last. Running a service backwards may seem a bit far-fetched, but I can appreciate the concept behind it. People really are too predictable sometimes. Predictability numbs the mind. My own belief system contains a fair amount of ritual, but I don’t expect catastrophe to ensue if the rituals aren’t followed to the letter. Rituals add beauty, depth and dignity to any service, but must never be allowed to overshadow the deity they’re intended to honor. Although rituals can help one feel connected to God, the ritual itself is never the ultimate point. It’s important to scrutinize rituals to understand the spiritual concepts lying behind them. And naturally, rituals are prone to human error. I’ve attended religious services all my life, both Christian and non-Christian, and have witnessed many different ways services can be derailed, including a fainting minister, power outages, tornadoes, spontaneous fires caused by candles or incense,

unruly children, wild animals charging into the sanctuary, and someone throwing up on the altar. In such cases, it’s important for worship – and life – to move on. Most clergy members can recall some instance in which he or she was required to improvise in the face of unexpected events. Religious rituals, artifacts, customs and texts are marvelous, but don’t turn them into superstitions. As for sacred texts, it’s not the physical book itself – a disposable pile of paper – that’s important, but how those words affect your life. A book may have sentimental and historical value, but it isn’t holy in its own right. If you order a burger and fries and it totals $6.66, put away the holy water and just pay the tab. If people make mistakes during a religious service, cut them some slack. I’m not advocating taking a sloppy approach to your chosen spiritual path or world view, but fretting over non-essentials is a waste of time. For example, calamity will not befall you if you read a newspaper column containing 666 words. Which you just did.
