Council tables standards ordinance Hears report from FDOT on Highway 77 By RANDAL SEYLER

638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY — The Chipley City Council decided to table the proposed “Private Property Standards” until the August workshop where the ordinance will be discussed.

The ordinance was on the agenda Tuesday for its first reading, but Mayor Linda Cain asked that the council wait until next month to put the ordinance up for first reading. “I think we should discuss this more in-depth at the workshop,” she said. City Administrator Dan Miner said the purpose of the ordinance is to address code violations, such as abandoned properties with overgrown lawns, by identifying the owners and getting the properties cleaned up. To that end, the draft of the

ordinance proposes the esablishment of an abandoned property registration program whereby the city would be able to locate owners of foreclosed properties and get them to “correct negative impacts and maintain the properties.” The ordinance would require persons or companies responsible for the properties to post their names and contact information at the properties so the city could contact them if the abandoned property is not being maintained. The council will further discuss the ordinance when it holds its

Task Force arrests 33 in countywide narcotics roundup By RANDAL SEYLER

638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY — Over 400 man hours and $6,000 in drug buy money were expended in the massive narcotics roundup conducted by Washington County law enforcement last week. Chipley Police Chief Kevin Crews and Washington County Sheriff Bobby Haddock were at the Chipley City Council meeting on Tuesday telling the council members about the months-long investigation that culminated in the arrest of 33 local residents on various drug charges. “No one single law enforcement agency could have done an operation like this,” Crews said. “It took all of us working together, and that includes the community members who stand by us.”

The Washington County Drug Task Force began a narcotics arrest roundup on July 3 that included arrest warrants for 35 suspects on felony charges of selling controlled substances, Crews said. The Washington County Drug Task Force, which consists of the Chipley Police Department and Washington County Sheriff ’s Office, concluded a six-month long investigation into the sale of illegal narcotics. On Wednesday, July 3, the narcotics task force began conducting a warrant roundup that consisted of 38 arrest warrants for 35 suspects. During the course of the roundup, several suspects were found to be in possession of marijuana, and/or various drug paraphernalia, according to police. Approximately a half-pound of the marijuana seized from these suspects was

prepackaged for sell. While attempting the arrest of Haley Emanuel at her residence on charges of sell of methamphetamine and opium, Drug Task Force Officers were able to gain consent to search the residence leading to an additional three arrests, according to the release. After entering the residence, police discovered that three additional people were currently residing in the home. The three residents were identified and one of them, Jeremy Windsor, was arrested for an outstanding warrant from Holmes County. During a search of the residence, an active methamphetamine lab was discovered in a common area of the home. At that time, all remaining subjects were arrested, according

County, cities still awaiting damage assessment By RANDAL SEYLER

638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY — Washington County officials still are sifting through the soggy, waterdamaged homes and property from last week’s major rainstorm, determining whether it can apply for federal reimbursement funds. Some local governments also may file insurance claims for water damage and overtime caused by the storm. To receive Federal Emergency Management Agency dollars, the area must rack up $25.7 million in damage to public and private property, said Vernon Mayor Michelle Cook on Monday.

ordinance from page A1 determined in 2006 at public hearings in Chipley. “This has not been funded,” Barfield said, “but it would be a good time to pick this back up and update the study on the alternatives.” The most popular alternative was identified as Alternative Route 5, which took Highway 77 west of downtown Chipley. “This route would include an overpass at the railroad which would be good for emergency vehicles,” Martin said. Martin noted that traffic in Chipley along Highway 77 will have doubled by 2030 compared to the 2005 study numbers. “Route 5 is the best alternative for our traffic,” the mayor said. Barfield said the next step was for the city to write the DOT a letter asking them to return to the study. Martin said the cost of a new study would be $1.5 to $2.5 million and would take about two

years to complete. “It is a substantial investment for the DOT to pick the study back up,” Barfield said, “but we are constantly looking at ways to make things better for our communities.” In other business, the council heard a request from residents Cheryl McCall and Suzan Gage to add stripes to the rest of 5th Street. Last month, after residents complained of speeding on 5th Street, especially along Shivers Park, the city had a contractor repaint the centerline and border stripes on 5th Street from Highway 90 to South Boulevard. “It is in the works,” Miner said of the rest of the street painting. “We have plans to stripe the rest of the road as soon as we can.” The city does not have the equipment to do the striping, so a contractor is needed for the painting, Miner said.

Resident Miles Anderson also asked the council to consider removing some abandoned tires on a property adjacent to his property, but the council took no action on the request. The council also approved a resolution requesting a waiver of local financial support and waiver of average wage requirements for Westpoint Home Inc. Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Ted Everett said the resolution would allow Westpoint Home to create more jobs and remain competitive. “This won’t cost the city anything,” Miner told the council. “This won’t hurt the people who are already working there or their wages?” the mayor asked. “Not at all,” Everett replied. He said the state requires new jobs in areas deemed a Rural Area of Critical Economic Concern are required to pay 115 percent of the state’s average wage.

ton and Washington counties all are included in the damage assessment. “We think that between all of us we can come up to that amount,” Cook said. State officials were expected to begin inspecting Washington County on Tuesday to start estimating the amount of damage done by the flooding. “We’re still in the preliminary stages for funding to help with the flooding,” Cook said. “In the end it’s going to on the county as to if we get help.” Washington County and the city of Vernon are hoping to receive FEMA funding, and state officials were in the county on Tuesday surveying the damage to roads, businesses and homes. However, receiving federal assistance is a long-term endeavor, warned County Commissioner Charles Brock. “It’s a slow process,” he said, “and it could be 18 months or two years before you see any funds.” Flooding occurred at Vernon City Hall as well as citywide, City Clerk Dian Hendrix said on Monday, with rain coming in through the roof in her office and in the council chambers. No flooding damage was discussed at the Chipley City Council meeting on Tuesday, although a large oak tree in Shivers Park has toppled following the record rainfall. The council discussed whether or not to try and stand the tree back upright, but ultimately decided the cost would be too prohibitive. “We don’t know how much of the root is still in the ground,” Councilman Kevin Russell said. “We could spend $2,000 putting the tree

back up and it could still die or fall back over.” No flood damage was reported in Wausau, City Clerk Margaret Riley said on Thursday. “We were lucky, we only got about 10 inches of rain over here,” she said. Countywide, continued rains have hampered efforts to repair roads closed and damaged by last week’s floods, according to an announcement on the Washington County website. In Bay County, government buildings weathered the storm fine and likely no damage claims will be made against the county’s insurance policy for them, said Eve Tooley, county risk manager. Panama City is still tallying up the cost of the storm and has not decided if it will file a claim with its insurance, said Jeffrey Brown, assistant city manager. The decision will be a simple one, based on whether the storm’s costs exceed the city’s insurance policy deductibles, Brown said. The city will submit its overall damage assessment to the county’s emergency management division. The numbers then will be compared against its insurance policy and if anything rises above the level of the deductable, a claim may be filed, Brown said. “It’s tough to know” if any claims will be made right now, he said, noting a damage estimate would be ready by today. “I don’t even have a list of all the damage yet or how much overtime was worked by all the departments yet,” he said. Halifax Media’s Matthew Beaton contributed to this report.

All citizens and interested parties are encouraged to attend the public hearing. Any inquiries regarding the public hearing or any person requiring special accommodations due to disability or physical impairment, including speech or hearing impairments, should contact the city administrator’s office at (850) 638-6350 at least three (3) business days prior to the hearing.

to the release.    Drug Task Force Officers gained information during the roundup that resulted in an undercover operation that nabbed two additional suspects — Amine Mohamad Badreddine, and Lacey Alexis Adkison. Each were charged with the purchase of cocaine, according to police.  Bonds ranged from $1,000 up to $60,000 at first appearance. “If it were not for the dedication of the staffs of the Chipley Police Department and the Washington County Sheriff ’s Office, we would not have been able to do an operation like this,” Haddock said.  The illegal drugs purchased during the undercover operation included methamphetamine, marijuana, cocaine, crack cocaine, synthetic marijuana, and various prescription medications to include hydrocodene, Loratab, Xanax, Methadone, Diazepam, and Oxycodone.   Several seizures were made during the operation to include an approximate total of $2,686 in cash, and a motor vehicle. “This type of operation could not be done by any one Law Enforcement Agency,” said Crews. “It takes the community’s support and involvement with law enforcement to make a large scale operation of this magnitude a success.” Crews and Haddock said they greatly appreciate residents getting involved to rid neighborhoods of drug dealers. “I wish we didn’t have to do this, and we’re not bragging about it,” Haddock said, “but these people made a choice to go down that road. It harms our children, and it harms our community, so if they choose to go that way then we’re going to go after them.”

Are you spiritually adventurous? When I was growing up, my family moved frequently. I never understood people who got upset about moving. There are always new adventures waiting down the road. Even moving to unexpected locations is exciting. To this day, a new move, or even a small road trip, gives me a sense of intense excitement. Have you ever seen a goofy dog that can’t wait to leap into the car as soon as the door opens? I can identify with that enthusiasm. Open the car door, and there I am, anxiously awaiting the next journey. Most people have a sense of adventure. Human beings are naturally curious and eager to experience new things. But that same curiosity and quest for adventure SHANNON doesn’t always spill SEYLER over into religion. Faithfully Yours Sometimes, people’s spirituality can become mired down in predictability. When’s the last time you did something completely unexpected in your spiritual life? One of the reasons I attend services outside of my own religion isn’t simply due to my longtime commitment to interfaith harmony. Sometimes, I do it to jolt myself awake. Seeing the rituals of other faiths (or even other denominations or sects within my own religion) can help me understand spiritual concepts in brand new ways. Nothing refreshes your worldview like stepping completely outside of your spiritual comfort zone. I’ve heard people suggest that mingling with people of other beliefs is somehow detrimental to faith. If being in the same room with people practicing other religions is all it takes to derail them, then their faith must be weaker than wet tissue paper. If anything, interfaith activities have expanded and increased my spiritual

NON-PROFIT OF THE WEEK: THE TWILIGHT WISH FOUNDATION The Twilight Wish Foundation is the first major wish-granting organization dedicated to the needs of senior citizens. The organization celebrates the contributions and achievements of seniors by helping them during times of need. Wishes are sent directly to the organization, and the public can view them on the group’s website. Donations may be made to help make these wishes come true. The group also sponsors veterans’ programs, intergenerational education, and the D.U.T.Y. (Diner Unexpected Thank You) program, which involves paying for seniors’ meals. There are Twilight Wish Foundation chapters in various parts of the U.S., and volunteers can start a new chapter in their area if one doesn’t already exist. Twilight Wish Foundation http://www.twilightwish.org/ P.O. Box 1042 Doylestown, PA 18901 (877) TWF-WISH (893-9474) understanding. But there are certainly other sources of spiritual adventure. Some people have favorite passages in the Bible or other religious texts, and tend to get stuck on them. Many people, for instance, focus on the Gospels, but when’s the last time they read the Old Testament book of Habakkuk, much less picked up a book by somebody advocating a completely different religious perspective? Try reading something new and different, and see what inspiration you can derive from it. If you find yourself offering the same prayers over and over again, try a new approach. If nothing else, try silence. Try listening instead of talking. We’re often so busy talking that God can’t get a word in edgewise. Perhaps consider using meditation, chanting or affirmations in addition to prayer. One can also use sacred music or art for spiritual renewal and inspiration. Many people put their beliefs into practice by performing charitable

acts, but there’s no need to get stuck in a rut there, either. I know someone who donated to a certain charity for decades, dutifully sending a check each month. But one day, she decided to actually go to that charity’s office and help out in person, rather than just sending a check. It was a life-changing experience. As exciting as discovering new destinations may be, religious discovery can be even more rewarding. Spirituality can constitute one of the greatest adventures of our lives. Try opening yourself up to new spiritual adventures and experiences today.
