638-0212 | @WCN_HCT CHIPLEY — Improvements at Washington-Holmes Technical Center have saved the district $150,351, the Washington County School Board was told during Monday’s meeting in the district administration building in Chipley.

Brian Walker, measurement and verification manager for ABM Building and Energy Solutions of Florida, and Mark Hagerman, ABM vice president of sales, were on hand to update the board members with an energy review during the October board meeting. “The reductions in electricity and gas usage for the construction and audit period reduced pollution by 1,218 barrels of oil not consumed,” said Walker. The renovations at WHTC, which began last year, included control renovations and upgrade, the replacement of 67 air conditioning systems, lighting replacements and upgrades,

water side renovations, weld shop exhaust fan system and the installation of a heavy equipment complete exhaust ventilation system, Walker said.

Council from page A1 Grove said. The manufacturers council is looking at the same challenges as they apply to industrial jobs across the 12-county region. The region, which stretches from Escambia to Franklin counties, is expected to receive $2.6 billion in total 2013 Gross Domestic Product from manufacturing. Manufacturing provides 14,518 jobs within the regional economy, and generates $985 million in total earnings. The leisure and hospitality industry, on the other hand, employs 63,053 workers in the region and generates $1.3 billion in earnings. “We looked at the manufacturing jobs in Northwest Florida, and found there are 14,000 jobs with an average annual salary of $67,872,” Grove said. “On the other hand, the tourism industry is paying annual salaries of $20,600.” For every job in manufacturing, an additional 1.7 jobs are generated in the region. Getting parents and legislators on board with the idea that manufacturing careers are lucrative has been a challenge, but the state of Florida is ahead of the game, Grove said. “Adam Putnam, commissioner

of agriculture, said recently he would rather be involved in the government of Florida rather than any other state in the country,” Grove said. “While our legislators are debating how much we should be involved in getting our high school and middle school students on track to get industrial certifications, other states are still debating whether or not it should even be an issue.” Regional manufacturers councils are also found across the country and throughout Florida, but until the forming of the Northwest Florida Manufacturers Council, there was not one in this region, Grove said. As an example of one benefit of having a manufacturers council, local businesses are now eligible for grants to reimburse them for training expenses up to $3,500 for each new job added, Grove said. “Normally, you have to add 10 jobs to be eligible for this reimbursement, but through the council, you can now be eligible for even one job due to this grant,” she said. Nationally, 70 percent of Americans think manufacturing is the most important industry as far as impact to the national economy,

Right now, this is the most efficient schedule we can come up with.” “The children are still staying out there waiting,” Board Member Susan

However, the total savings for the period was actually $150,351 ($30,000 in maintenance and operation savings, $18207 in construction period energy savings, $98,516 in audit period savings July 2012-June 2013, $1090 in reconciled energy savings and $2,538 in operational water savings.) The saved energy amounts to 1,218 barrels of oil not consumed, or 4.0 acres of forest preserved, Walker said. “We’re right where we said we’d be with the energy savings,” Board President Terry Ellis said. The board also discussed the bus schedule at Kate Smith Elementary School. On Sept. 30, teacher Marla Whitaker told the school board of her concerns about elementary students who are forced to wait 30 or more minutes after school for their bus to arrive, some times with little supervision. Transportation and Maintenance Director Mike Park told the board on Monday that the buses were

Improvements to the 15 buildings on campus include retrofitting light fixtures with new high-efficiency T-8 fluorescent lamps and ballasts; renovating exhaust systems in certain buildings for improved air circulation; installation of a campus-wide, web-based HVAC control system, allowing the school to better manage energy use as well as notify appropriate staff should any problems arise with the equipment; and 63 HVAC units will be replaced with high-efficiency equipment that exceeds a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) of 15, according to the website. From the period of March 2012 to June 2013, the district saw utility savings of $116,723, Walker told the board, saying the district would have spent $251,904 in utilities but actually only spent $135,181, for the savings of $116,723.

jobs. Clearly we have got some work to do there.” Grove, of Panama City, is working with the manufacturer’s council on loan from Gulf Power to help with workforce development, spoke on the importance of manufacturing jobs to the regional economy, and the potential for good careers for students with industrial certifications. “We all get to live in a place where millions of people wish they could live, and we want to provide jobs so our children and grandchildren can stay close to home, if not in the same city, then at least in the region,” Grove said. “Close enough they can visit but not so close you have to do all their laundry,” she added, joking. While there is not a lack of applicants for jobs at Gulf Power, there is often a lack of qualified applicants applying for the jobs — which is a problem for manufacturers across the country as well as across the region. “In my job, I focus on workforce development for the energy industry, and it is a struggle to find employees who have not only the job skills, but the soft skills as well, such as the habit of showing up for work every day on time,”

Faith is a journey, not a destination My husband occasionally watches a religious TV program called “The Journey Home.” Each episode highlights someone who converted to Catholicism, including several Protestant ministers. Conversion stories are interesting, regardless of what faith a person has converted to. As I’ve often noted, religion is like a revolving door, with people constantly moving in and out. It’s interesting to know what causes people to convert to a certain faith (or, in some cases, to reject SHANNON religion altogether.) SEYLER The title of the Faithfully Yours program, “The Journey Home,” underscores the perception of one’s chosen faith as a “home.” Home is where we feel most comfortable. It’s warm and familiar. I’ve met many Christians who refer to their house of worship as their “church home.” But even in our actual homes, not everyone will hold the same viewpoints. Personally, I’ve never found a spiritual group that shares my beliefs exactly, and that’s okay. Just as family members can’t be expected to think exactly alike, neither can those who share our spiritual homes. A classic example would be Unitarian Universalist congregations, in which people can hold very different beliefs and opinions while still being united as a strong, thriving community. People often change homes. A place that once felt comfortable may no longer be adequate. Just as people change physical locations, they may likewise change spiritual homes. Unanticipated events in life can sometimes alter the structure of our homes and families. Spiritual changes are also among life’s little

NON-PROFIT OF THE WEEK: CHILDREN’S HOME SOCIETY OF FLORIDA The Children’s Home Society of Florida was established in 1902 to help cope with the influx of homeless children into Florida due to the arrival of the Orphan Trains. Beginning with a staff of only two individuals, the group began successfully finding homes for children. They became increasingly active in advocating children’s rights, and are still strong promoters of legislation that ensures kids’ health and safety. Today, the organization maintains over 1,000 employees in 15 divisions. Over a century since their founding, they’re still helping Florida youth find caring, loving homes through foster and adoption programs. They’re also active in combating the sex trafficking of minors, and aiding young people who age out of the foster system. Through their Emerald Coast division, the Children’s Home Society of Florida has helped thousands of children right here in our area. Children’s Home Society of Florida, Emerald Coast Division (850) 747-5411 914 Harrison Ave. Panama City, FL 32401 surprises. Even if you’re never changed religions, or aren’t religious, you’re still on a journey. People’s beliefs and outlooks change over time. Often, those changes are subtle, but in some cases, they’re not. Someone I know shocked her family and friends by abruptly becoming a Jehovah’s Witness. She has remained one for decades. She found her spiritual home, although it certainly took everyone around her by surprise. A major religious conversion certainly qualifies a journey, but so does the progress of someone whose religious affiliation has never changed. Let’s say that someone has belonged to a certain religion all her life. Even so, her outlook and

experiences within that religion will have changed over the years. Such individuals have the good fortune of making their journey within a spiritual framework they already know and love. So, what about your own journey? What led you to where you are today? Get a sheet of paper and try writing down the steps of your spiritual journey.
