City to seek grant on utilities project Council OKs resolution to apply for funds By RANDAL SEYLER
638-0212 | @WCN_HCT email@example.com CHIPLEY â€” City Council members met in a five-minute session Thursday to approve a resolution authorizing the submission of an application for a rural infrastructure feasibility grant.
The grant is the first in a series of grants the city will seek as it strives to extend water service to south of Interstate 10 and works to update the townâ€™s aging waterlines. Tom Bryant, representing the consultant firm Doug Bruce & Associates of Tallahassee, was on hand, but the council had no questions for him. â€œThis resolution is really just us showing support for this grant process,â€? City Administrator Dan Miner said, adding that the council has voiced its opinion that the city should concentrate on extending
the water service to south of the interstate. The council voted in February to take the first step in seeking grant funding for repairing the cityâ€™s aging waterlines and to expand the cityâ€™s water system to south of Interstate 10 when it put out a request for qualifications for a consulting firm. Doug Bruce & Associates was ultimately chosen to serve the city in that capacity. Miner said currently the city utilities including water, sewer and gas end at the Super 8 Motel property. Resident and real estate broker

Gary Hartman told the council in February that extending water service south of I-10 could mean economic growth for the cityâ€™s interstate corridor. â€œIf the water is there, the businesses will come,â€? Hartman said, noting that while a hotel could not be built without city sewer services, restaurants could function on city water and a septic tank. â€œRestaurants definitely need city water, if they operate on a well, then they have to have their water tested every month,â€? Hartman said.

NWF Community Hospital celebrates new accreditation for Wound Healing Institute By RANDAL SEYLER
638-0212 | @WCN_HCT firstname.lastname@example.org CHIPLEY â€” Northwest Florida Community Hospital administration, staff and community leaders gathered Tuesday to celebrate the hospitalâ€™s Wound Healing Institute accreditation for Hyperbaric Services. â€œAny time a hospital gets accredited, it is a big deal,â€? said Pat Schlenker, CEO of Northwest Florida Community Hospital. â€œEspecially a small, rural hospital such as ours.â€? The Wound Healing Institute at NFCH is one of nine accredited facilities in the state of Florida, and the only Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society accredited facility between Lakeland and Pensacola. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy uses a special chamber, sometimes called a pressure chamber, to increase the amount of oxygen in the blood. The air pressure inside a hyperbaric oxygen chamber is about two and a half times greater than the normal pres-
PANAMA CITYâ€” State Rep. Matt Gaetz has amassed more than $252,360 for an election thatâ€™s more than three years away, according to second quarREP. MATT ter campaign finance records GAETZ released this week. His impressive haul overshadowed the relatively modest sums brought in by other Panhandle lawmakers preparing for their own races. Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach, is running for the state Senate District 1 seat and had to gain ground quickly. His primary competition in the race, state Rep. Jimmy Patronis, threw his hat in the ring in December and had built a war chest of more than $90,000 during first quarter fundraising. Patronis has since bowed out, saying he wants to spend more time with his family. But Gaetz needed only about six weeks to catch and overtake him, as he readies himself for the 2016 election. The majority of Gaetzâ€™s funds, however, came from outside the Senate district, which consists of Bay, Holmes, Jackson, Walton, Washington and part of Okaloosa counties.

CHIPLEY â€” A 28-year-old pregnant woman was killed Monday morning after the pickup truck she riding in crashed on Interstate 10 in Washington County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Misty Nicole Hanson of Westville was the passenger in an eastbound 1995 Chevrolet pickup that veered into the median on I-10 near mile marker 119. The truck then crossed back through both lanes off traffic and entered the south shoulder and overturned. The driver of the pickup is unknown, and the investigation is ongoing, according to the FHP. Hanson, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected. She was taken to Bay Medical Center for treatment where she and her unborn child succumbed to their injuries and were pronounced dead. Another passenger, 54-year-old David Collier of Ponce De Leon, was taken to Northwest Florida Community Hospital with noncritical injuries.

He said interested businesses have looked at the land in the past, but due to lack of water and sewer utilities, nothing has been done with the property. On Thursday, Hartman reminded the council that the city owns a one-acre parcel just south of the interstate. “It would make sense that that would be the first place for the water to go,” he said. The city also loses between 22 and 27 percent of its water supply due to leaks, Miner told the council in February. Improving the water retention would save energy and make the water service
more profitable, as well as saving energy. The energy savings for the city’s water plant could be sufficient cause to receive a grant for the repairs. Council Member Karen Rustin asked if the city planned on taking the waterlines to Blue Lake. “It would be nice if we could take them all the way to State Park Road,” Miner said. “But we will probably have to do that in phases.” “If we get the lines south of the interstate, then we can get businesses in there and that can help with getting the lines extended further south, Hartman said.
hyperbaric from page A1 Fire Protection Association, according to a news release from the hospital. Northwest Florida Community Hospital is a 59-bed healthcare facility that includes a 25-bed Critical Access hospital, a 34-bed Long Term Care Facility and a Home Health Agency, was named one of Florida’s Top Hospitals and recognized with the Hospital of Choice Award. It was one of only three Florida Hospitals to receive the award. It is also accredited by the Joint Commission of Accreditation of Health Care Organizations. Its 24-hour state-of-theart Emergency department
provides the latest in diagnostic radiology with 24/365 coverage by Board-certified radiologists. Out of 1,328 Critical Access Hospitals in the United States, NFCH is the first and only one to have a UHMS accredited hyperbaric facility. “This is a tremendous achievement,” said Catherine Todorovich, CEO of Innovative Healing Systems of Tampa. “The Wound Healing Institute is dedicated to non-healing wounds, and they have a healing rate of 90 to 95 percent. I can tell you there is no better feeling than seeing a patient walk out of the clinic in 16 weeks, after they came
here in a wheelchair thinking they were going to have to have an amputation.” Innovative Healing Systems is a partner with NFCH in the Wound Healing Institute, Schlenker said. The Wound Healing Institute was the vision of Vickie Schlenker, said Todorovich. “We also need to thank her for her vision and work in making this clinic a reality.” The staff of the Wound Healing Institute impacts people’s lives, Todorovich said. “Quality care like this doesn’t just happen,” she said. “It takes a qualified and tenacious staff to deliver health care at this level.”
Gaetz from page A1 Of the 662 contributions he received — including in-kind contributions — only 225 came from within District 1. The contributions poured in from the big cities and more heavily populated areas close by — 48 from Pensacola, 79 from Tallahassee — and across the state, including South Florida, Orlando and the Tampa area. Patronis, R-Panama City, said he wasn’t aware of the major bucks Gaetz was raising, so that didn’t influence his decision to leave the race. “I had no idea what he was up to or what, and I really didn’t care. Once I had made up my mind, even though publically folks didn’t know about it, I really just kind of checked out. I was focused on family and the business,” he said. Patronis said by the second week of May he essentially had made up his mind to leave the race. He only raised $2,800 in the second quarter. Now he is in the process of returning those dollars, after accounting for his suspended campaign’s expenses. “I haven’t made a single solicitation for fundraising since the first of March of 2013,” Patronis said. Had he stayed in, things could have gotten interesting. The District 1 seat is currently held by Gaetz’s father, Senate President Don Gaetz, who is term-limited and can’t run for re-election in 2016. Matt Gaetz also has a 2014 race to hold his state House seat, but he only raised$3,200 for that election during this reporting period. He’s amassed $31,700 to defend his District 4 House seat. Matt Gaetz did not return calls for comment.
Local state rep. race
Patronis is term-limited in the House and can’t run again for his District 6 seat. Already the field is crowded with possible replacements. It includes four Republicans and one Democrat, but no one reaped big bucks in the second quarter. Brian Rust, R-Panama City Beach, did not file a second quarter report, and said he is pulling out of the race to focus on a 2016 run at the District 5 County Commission seat held by Mike Thomas. Melissa Hagan, R-Lynn Haven, has the
largest overall war chest, but most of her fundraising has come through personal loans. She received $3,625 in contributions in the second quarter and loaned herself $15,000. That’s a total of $26,374 for the race. That includes $5,500 in loans from the first quarter, though Hagan has spent some of it on campaign advisors. Mark Anderson, R-Panama City, entered the race in May, but his second quarter report shows he received no campaign contributions. (Anderson is not Mark Andersen, supervisor of elections.) Norman Ray Bishop, R-Panama City Beach, joined the race in July. Thus he had no contributions to report for the second quarter and filed no report. Jamie Shepard of Panama City Beach is the lone Democrat in the race and entered it in June. Her second quarter report shows she received no campaign contributions. She is the former president of the Bay County League of Women Voters.
State Sen. Greg Evers, R-Baker, brought in $37,800 in the second quarter as he seeks re-election in 2014. He has no challengers for his District 2 seat. He’s raised about $83,000 for the race so far. State Sen. Bill Montford, D-Tallahassee, only raised $1,500 in the second quarter, as he looks to hold his District 3 in the 2016 election. He’s raised a total of $25,300 for the race. Meanwhile, a libertarian candidate will vie for state Rep. Marti Coley’s District 5 seat. Coley, R-Marianna, is term-limited, and Karen Barbara Schoen, L-Sunny Hills, is the second candidate to enter the race. She will faceoff against David Bradley Drake, R-DeFuniak Springs, in the 2014 general election, if no other Republicans enter. Drake added just $500 in the second quarter, but he’s raised $91,000 for the race already. Schoen entered in July and didn’t have any fundraising totals for the second quarter. State Rep. Halsey Beshears, R-Monticello, raised $5,500 in the second quarter, giving him a grand total of $12,500 for his 2014 election for his District 7 seat. He is unopposed right now.

CHIPLEY — Trinity Martial Arts of Chipley was honored with a Mark of Excellence Award during the recent Martial Arts SuperShow in Las Vegas. “Trinity Martial Arts has always sought to deliver quality martial art instruction, while making a difference in their community,” according to a news release from the Martial Arts Industry Association, the supply company that hosts the annual event. “That’s why receiving the Mark of Excellence Award from one of the most respected organizations in the industry for over 35 years, Century Martial Arts, is an honor martial art schools across the world hope for each year.” Chief instructor and owner Jason Smith, a fifth-degree black belt, began Trinity Martial Arts in Wausau in 2008, and he has been located in Chipley for the past two years. This is also the second year in a row that Trinity Martial Arts has been recognized with a Mark of Excellence Award. “My current instructors and mentors are Mike Chat, Mike Metzger and Derek Frader,” Smith said. Besides himself, Smith’s staff includes instructor Philip
Draayom and instructor trainee Ashton Kirkland. “The award is based on what you are teaching, and what you are doing for the community,” Smith said. “They look at your programs. We don’t want to just teach kids to punch and kick, we want to teach them the skills that they need to become successful adults.” The Mark of Excellence Award is the highest honor bestowed by Century Martial Arts to a select group of businesses each year, according to the release. The Mark of Excellence Award was earned by the extraordinary level of dedication Trinity Martial Arts exhibited to help students in this community achieve great personal growth, in life and in martial arts. “At Century our core belief is that martial arts has the ability to profoundly change lives,” said Century Martial Arts founder and CEO, L. Michael Dillard, “and that is exactly what Trinity Martial Arts is doing— changing lives for betterment of their community.” Smith accepted the Mark of Excellence Award on behalf of the school at a ceremony on July 2 at The TAO Nightclub in The Venetian in Las Vegas during the Martial Arts SuperShow, the world’s largest martial art industry

Jane’s Thought Garment Columnist’s Note: I am unavailable to write this week’s column, so please enjoy this spiritual children’s story, instead. Whatever your age, you may find it inspirational.
By D.D. Arroyo Six-year-old Jane’s voice was shrill with anger. She screamed and tears came into her eyes. Her baby brother had taken the pretty little slippers from her very best doll, and he was getting them dirty, trying to put feet into them. Her mother hurried into the room, and seeing the trouble picked up Jane’s little brother. “Mother he’s ruined them,” said Jane between sobs. SHANNON “My best doll’s SEYLER slippers, and now Faithfully Yours they are spoiled. He’s mean. I hate him!” She stamped her feet as she looked at her small brother, and he, too, began to sob frightened by her actions. Mother sat down on the bed, and handing little brother a cracker, spoke softly. “Jane, I’m sorry he took the slippers, but he hasn’t hurt them too much. It’s wrong for you to say the things you did.” The little brother, happy with the cracker, let mother take the tiny slippers off the tip of his foot. He watched quietly while Mother carefully wiped the grimy finger marks off the little white slippers, but Jane still sobbed. “But Mother, see, he’s torn them. Now, my doll won’t look pretty.” Mother looked at her little daughter. “Dear Jane, you shouldn’t let yourself become angry and excited. You make very ugly thought patterns when you do. They are like little arrows falling all around which hurts others, and in turn come back to hurt you. You know that, for I have taught you about it.” “But I can’t help it, Mother. It hurts to have my doll spoiled. It’s mine, and I want it pretty,” said Jane resentfully. Mother nodded. “I know you want it kept pretty, dear, but your brother is too little to understand. He didn’t mean any harm. Besides, the slipper isn’t spoiled. I can mend it, and they are both cleaned nicely. There—see?” Jane looked doubtfully at the slippers and then wiped the tears from her eyes. Mother continued. “You see, Jane, it is easier to repair the physical damage done than it is to repair the damage you have done with your angry thoughts.” “But, Mother,” Jane protested, “everyone gets angry and says things. I didn’t mean I—I hated
my brother, really. I just said that.” The little girl was beginning to look repentant. Her Mother regarded her gravely. “Yes, dear, that’s the whole trouble. People do say things, and then, not really meaning them, think their words are forgotten and don’t amount to anything. They don’t realize that our words make patterns around us. When the words are angry ones and mean ugly things the patterns are ugly, too. These patterns aren’t just wiped out as soon as one’s anger is gone. They linger and fasten onto one. They become easier to repeat, and then if not stopped they become a part of one’s character. Worse, these patterns affect other people. They encourage them to do mean things, and make them unhappy. It is wrong to create ugliness, when we should make patterns of beauty and happiness.” Jane looked at her mother shamefacedly. “I’m sorry, Mother, truly I am. I’ll try to make better thought-patterns—beautiful ones!” “I’m sure you will, dear,” said Mother, giving her little daughter a quick hug. That night after Jane went to bed she had a dream which helped her to remember this promise. In her dream she saw a small angel just her size. The little angel wore a long white robe, and sat on a chair. In her hand the angel had a garment. It was a dress, and the angel was sewing designs on it. As she sewed many little things buzzed around her. Some of the things were of a beautiful shape and color, but others looked more like monstrous insects. They were evil and ugly to look at. From time to time the angel reached out and chose one of the swirling swarm about her. Sometimes she picked a lovely creature and when she sewed that on the dress it looked very beautiful. however, at other times she chose one of the ugly looking insect-things, and these she sewed into place along-side of the beautiful patterns already on the dress. In her dream Jane cried out every time she saw an ugly pattern sewed on the dress. “You’re spoiling the dress putting those horrible things right with those beautiful designs,” she said to the angel. To her surprise the angel nodded and replied, “Yes, and isn’t it a shame to spoil a lovely dress with such horrible designs?” “Yes, it is,” quickly agreed Jane. “Why do you pick them out to put on the dress? Why don’t you just sew the beautiful patterns on the dress?” The angel smiled sweetly and said, “That is what I’d like to do. It would be very pleasant work if there were only beautiful patterns to sew onto this dress, but you see, I have
to sew on the patterns that are made for the garment.” “But who makes you take the ugly ones?” Jane eagerly inquired. Again the angel smiled, but this time rather sadly as she replied, “You do, Jane. These are your thoughts. This garment is a symbol of your soul. When you think beautiful loving thoughts, then I have lovely patterns to work with. When you are angry, or impatient, or say evil things, and perhaps act thoughtlessly and selfishly, then one of these ugly patterns form, and it has to be put into the garment.” Jane trembled. She was frightened at the ugliness of the swarm, and of the number of monstrous designs spoiling the beautiful dress the angel sewed on. She felt very unhappy, about it all. “Can’t I ever get rid of the ugly ones?” she asked slowly. The angel’s smile was very bright. “Oh, yes indeed, dear Jane. You can learn always to control your thoughts and your emotions so that they will make beautiful patterns, and then I can take out these ugly designs and sew in the new and beautiful ones.” And then may I have the beautiful dress to wear as my very own.” Jane asked eagerly. The angel nodded. “You have it, already. It is your thought garment. You wear it through life, if you only realized it. And when you go to the heaven world after your life here on earth is completed it goes with you, and that which is good and fine in it becomes a part of the real you—your Spirit.” Suddenly, Jane awoke, the dream still vivid in her memory. How beautiful the angel had been, and how shining some of the thought patterns on the garment! She thought it all over and decided to try hard in the future to control her thoughts. When she felt cross, or selfish, or wanted to become angry, she remembered the angel sewing on the thought garment and immediately tried to think good thoughts. She tried to be unselfish, too, and patient. Sometimes she failed, but she kept trying, for Mother had told her, “There is no failure save in ceasing to try.” As time went on it became easier and easier for her to think good thoughts, and she found herself much happier because of it. The little angel is very happy, too, because Jane ‘s thought garment is growing more beautiful all the time. Now, dear little reader, what about your thought garment? Is it lovely to look at, and do you suppose the angel is happy when she works on it? Reprinted with permission from “Aquarian Age Stories for Children”, Rosicrucian Fellowship, Oceanside, California.
