idea,” Commissioner Joel Pate said. “But I don’t think we can really be paying anyone to be making a website.” The board voted earlier this summer, after several months’ discussion, to do away with the MSBU as soon as possible, and to put all available funds toward paying off Sunny Hills’ loan debt. The Municipal Service Benefit Unit, or MSBU, is an ordinancecreated tax district. Within that area, funds are raised to provide

services to the residents in that designated region. However, the MSBU is not an entity unto itself. The MSBU is a mechanism by which a county can fund a particular service or facility that provides a special benefit to property from a levy of special assessments. Currently, the county collects $31.25 a year from residents and property owners within the MSBU, and that money is used to provide

CHIPLEY — The Chipley City Council approved the 2013-14 budget and also found the means to give city employees a 2 percent raise. The council adopted the city’s budget and set the 2013-14 millage rate at 6.000 mills during a special meeting on Tuesday. “We took a little bit out of everywhere to come up with it,” City Administrator Dan Miner said. “It took some work, but we didn’t have to put off any purchases we had planned.” Miner said the budget committee took out some things, but “all the major things stayed in, and a few big items that didn’t make the first cut are in there.” “You and (assistant city administrator) Patty (Yates) did a good job,” said Mayor Linda Cain. She asked if any planned vehicle purchases were being cut from the budget, and Miner said there were not. The total of the 2013-14 budget is $11,873,152, according to the resolution the council adopted. The council also approved a maintenance memorandum of agreement with the state Department of Transportation in which the DOT extended the agreement until Sept. 30, 2014 at the rate of $46,663.72. The DOT intends to reduce the funding, Miner said, and he suggested the city consider alternatives for the highway right-ofways that were involved to

Consultant Bill Williams discusses Washington County’s chances of receiving RESTORE Act funding with the Board of County Commissioners on Thursday. Randal Seyler | The News

RESTORE from page A1 “The county website hasn’t been updated in months,” said Gothard. “It still has Steve Joyner listed as the county manager.” “I may have a solution,” Bush said. “Can I have a motion that we will put the MSBU information out there as soon as we can find a way of handling the website postings to the website?” Bush said that the county was still in the process of dividing up tasks since the loss of the county IT person, as well as the human resources director and the administrative secretary. “Lets agree that this is a good idea and we’ll make it happen once we get through this transition,” Bush said. The board voted in favor of the motion, except for Gothard, who voted “no.” Consultant Bill Williams with SCG Governmental Affairs of Tallahassee also appeared before the board to give an update on the progress toward securing RESTORE Act funding for Washington County. RESTORE Act funds are federally controlled funds resulting from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill of 2010 and which are coming from fines levied against BP for their part in the largest offshore oil spill

in U.S. history. “We were waiting on the Treasury rulings, which came down last week, and we were not precluded,” Williams told the board. Williams was hired in March to serve as the county’s consultant in its bid for RESTORE Act money. “Now we are much closer to having a strong position, with the work of the Water Management District and the Regional Planning Council,” Williams said. The entire state of Florida was declared an impacted coastal zone, and the region that will be eligible for funding may stretch 25-30 miles north into Alabama. The more the Panhandle counties work together, the stronger their claim will be for project funding from the RESTORE Act, Williams said. This was Williams’ first update of the board since he was hired to act as consultant on the county’s behalf for a $5,000 fee. “I, for one, would like to be updated at least once a month,” Abbott told Williams. “Whether it is by email or you coming and meeting with us, I would like be kept better informed about what is going on.” “You’re leading the pack in this area,” Williams said.

pay from page A1 reduce maintenance. “With those bushes and grass, it takes a lot of maintenance to keep them looking good,” Miner said. He suggested the city consider planting trees in the medians and right-of-ways to make it easier to mow and maintain.

Councilman Kevin Russell asked if the city had the right to change the landscaping on the DOT right-of-ways. Miner said he would look into the matter. “This is something we will want to discuss more at the workshops in the future,” the mayor said.

Following the classes, five more scarecrows were added to Chipley’s downtown decorations. Roland reminded her students, “Think out of the box! Use your imagination and explore your creativity! Most of the materials we used are recycled or repurposed — why dispose of it when you could build a scarecrow for the contest.” The club says “Thank You” to Museum Director Dorothy Odom for providing facilities for classes and opening the museum and to Jerry and Lynelle Morris for providing the cornstalks this year.

services to those living in Sunny Hills, as well as pay down the $1.66 million in debt — a loan that is not scheduled to be paid off until 2028. The board reduced services to lighting, some contracted mowing, and intends to put all the remaining money raised by the MSBU toward paying off the community’s debt. “I know $96 doesn’t sound like a lot of money, but my thought process was on the website itself,” Commissioner Todd Abbott said. “We already have a county website. Why can’t we post that information ourselves and save that money?” Abbott said it was a good idea to have the financials of the MSBU publicized so the community can track where its fees are going and how the debt is being paid off. “I think it was a very good suggestion on Commissioner (Lynn) Gothard’s behalf,” he said. “Who dictates what goes on the county website?” Commissioner Charles Brock asked. “Who is in charge of it now?” County Coordinator David Corbin is now in charge of the county websites since he is doing the duties of the former county manager, Brock was told.

The Garden Club hosted two free “Scarecrow Building 101” public workshops at Washington County’s History Museum under the Farmers Market pavilion.

Chipley woman wins $250,000 Mega Millions prize From Staff Reports CHIPLEY — The Florida Lottery announced Wednesday that Glenda Faye Taylor, 68, of Chipley, claimed a $250,000 prize in the Sept. 17, Mega Millions drawing. The Florida Lottery has had seven $250,000 winners since the Mega Millions game launched in May. Taylor purchased her winning ticket at HandiMart, located at 1230 Main St. in Chipley.

Adopting a new belief system When someone takes on a new belief, we often say that he or she has “adopted” that belief. What an interesting — and appropriate — choice of language. Adopting a new family member is never a frivolous decision. It requires thought, determination and planning. Just as a family doesn’t select new members by accident, people don’t choose beliefs randomly. While a few religious groups permit converts to join SHANNON immediately, most SEYLER don’t. Someone in my Faithfully Yours family underwent a religious conversion that required over a year’s worth of classes and special preparation. Even if converts are accepted straightaway, they’re expected to understand the obligations into which they’re entering. Any ethical religious group will try to ensure that converts join with proper intentions, not merely due to family (or peer) pressure and similarly invalid motivations. In a family, the adoption process can involve classes, background checks, and other special preparations. In the case of remarriage, when children from previous relationships are adopted, it requires thought, commitment and the knowledge that the blended family will actually work. The psychological welfare of both the children and parents must be considered. Adoption means not only loving new family members, but assuming responsibility for them. Adopting a belief also involves responsibility. A spiritual path isn’t merely a viewpoint, but a way of life.

NON-PROFIT OF THE WEEK: WORLD BICYCLE RELIEF In many areas, people don’t have access to motorized vehicles, and can’t even afford to own or maintain a bicycle. In some countries, it’s rare for women and girls to own bicycles, rendering them unable to attend school, hold jobs or otherwise escape homebound lives of domestic servitude and forced early marriages. Even health care workers, teachers and other professionals frequently lack basic transportation. Some children walk several hours each way just to attend school, a journey made far easier with bicycles. World Bicycle Relief has provided thousands of bikes to those in need. They build bicycles suited for the terrain of the area where they’ll be used, and train people in bicycle care and mechanics. Health care, education, work, and life in general has improved for the recipients of these bikes. A simple bicycle, an object we often take for granted, can help change people’s lives. World Bicycle Relief http://worldbicyclerelief.org 1333 N. Kingsbury Ave., 4th Floor Chicago, IL 60642 (312) 664-3836 Adopting a child affects not only the parents, but the entire family. The adoption of a faith affects not only a believer, but the whole spiritual community. Neither families nor religions exist in a vacuum. In both cases, the group affects the members, and the members affect the group. You’re responsible for bettering your community. That includes the smaller communities of your family and belief system. What are you doing to improve your community? If your answer is “I don’t know,” give it some thought. Try improving the groups to which you belong, whether religious or secular. An adopted child brings a special contribution to his or her new family, just as adoptive parents bring love and nurturing to

their new child. Similarly, members of religious organizations should try to improve their spiritual family. Don’t join a group and then expect it to do all of the work for you. If you’re content with your current belief or philosophy, and have no intention whatsoever of changing it, that’s great. Just strive to better your community. The community in question can be your family, spiritual group, club, town, or nation. You wouldn’t adopt new family members without the intent of improving their lives, so don’t adopt a belief system without giving something back to it. If we treated every new viewpoint with the seriousness of an actual adoption, we might select our beliefs more carefully.
