Citizens support nativity scene Mayor recognized for 25 years of service By CHRIS OLWELL
747-5079 | @PCNHchriso email@example.com CHIPLEY â€” Tuesdayâ€™s city council meeting was a full house as local citizens came to support city
leadersâ€™ pledge to keep the city-owned nativity scene on site. They also shared in Mayor Linda Cainâ€™s recognition by the League of Cities for 25 years of service. About a hundred people crammed into city hall to hear community members voice their support for the council members, who vowed not to remove the city-owned nativity scene from city property. Last week, an attorney representing Wisconsinbased Freedom From Religion Foundation wrote Mayor Linda Cain suggest-
ing that the display was illegal because it amounted to an endorsement of a single religion, thus violating the 1st Amendment. In attempt to bring the display into compliance with the law, the city has added a decorated tree. â€œItâ€™s about time that communities, church leaders just all get together and start taking our country back,â€? said council member Karen Rustin, who pointed out that she placed her hand a Bible when she took the oath of office. â€œFirst it started with the
schools. You canâ€™t pray in schools. You canâ€™t say this, you know, the pledge of allegiance. Now theyâ€™re up here, you know, you canâ€™t have a bible. Well hereâ€™s my Bible.â€? News editor Randal Seyler had called the Wisconsin-based organization as well as others while researching what is permissible for displays on public property. Cain issued a prepared statement questioning whether Seylerâ€™s action had generated the inquiry from FFRF.
BOCC expands Enterprise Zones for Ebro and Vernon By CECILIA SPEARS
Seyler responded by publishing a column in which he explained that he was simply trying to find out the rules governing such displays when he contacted the group; it was not an attempt to have the display removed nor did he make such a request. â€œI am sorry that the letter from FFRF was generated after I contacted them for an interview, and I am sorry that the FFRF letter was construed as an attempt by myself and the

CHIPLEY â€” Washington County Board of County Commissioners approved of County Planning Director Mike DeRuntzâ€™ request to expand the Enterprise Zones for Ebro and Vernon during its regular meeting on Thursday. â€œThis has nothing to do with taxes or land use,â€? Executive Director of the Washington County Chamber of Commerce Ted Everett said. â€œIt is just an imaginary boundary to help business owners. Enterprise Zones are a state incentive for new businesses create full time jobs in those areas.â€? After a public hearing, the board approved of a Small Scale Future Land Use Map Amendment from a Public/Semi-Public to a General Commercial designation for property at 3319 Court Ave. in Vernon. â€œIt is just a future land use amendment,â€? DeRuntz said. â€œIt is not for development.â€? Chair Alan Bush assured everyone if there was a need for a turn lane for that future business that it would be discussed during the development stage. The board held the first of four public hearings before applying for a $750,000 Community

Herbert â€œH.J. Kuntryâ€? Carter has been a fixture at area city council meetings the past few months as he travels the Panhandle seeking recognition of his version of country music, known as â€œDixie Phonics.â€? Carter, 72, appealed to the Chipley, Vernon and Bonifay city councils in

council from page A1 Washington County News to have the city’s nativity scene removed. Again, that was not the case,” wrote Seyler. Though he made no complaint, Seyler has since contacted FFRF and told them he believes the city is compliant with its display. There has been no formal legal challenge, but Richard Burke, who leads a street ministry called Hellfighter Motorcycle Ministry, told the council he had spoken with an attorney who would represent the city free of charge in the event the dispute ends up in court. Some in the audience
clearly felt FFRF’s action amounted to persecution of Christians. “They ridicule Christians. They laugh at Christians,” Burke said. “So I hope the City of Chipley will stay strong.” Cain thanked the people who formed the standing-room only crowd at city hall Tuesday for showing up. “It’s good to know we’ve got the support out there,” Cain said. “—Because it’s not coming down,” Rustin added. In other council business Mayor Cain received an award from the Florida League of Cities. Sharron
Barrion, Associate Director of Membership Development for the league, presented Cain with the award recognizing her for 25 years of elected service and commending her for her “unselfish commitment to municipal leadership and governance.” Finally, council members approved spending about $16,000 to buy a new phone system from AT&T. The police and fire departments as well as city administration will use the new phone system. The old one had become so obsolete that replacement parts were no longer available.
dixie from page A1 tempo and a “coastal” sound — one he hopes will be identified with this part of the country much as Bluegrass is with Kentucky or Hillbilly music with the Ozarks. He said he encourages others to see some of the country and hopes his story will inspire people to expand their horizons beyond the county line. Carter is no stranger to either music or the Panhandle. He grew up on a 68-acre farm on U.S. Highway 319 along the FloridaGeorgia line and graduated in 1958 from Leon High School, where he and a friend won the talent contest his senior year by playing a country music song. “When I graduated high school, I went into the Marines as a six-month reservist and fulfilled an eight-year obligation,” Carter told Tallahassee Magazine in 2007. “I went to work in 1960 … as a Tallahassee city fireman. I started going to Nashville in 1964, pitching songs.” Carter even managed a meeting at RCA Records to talk about his career. “I was 24 at the time,” Carter told the magazine. “It was my first trip to Nashville, and I was kind of intimidated.” Carter never did make it to the meeting, but he did not give up on his country music dream. In 1967, he
built a small recording studio and started producing gospel recordings. Carter also wrote a song about Marine Corps boot camp he pressed into a single. “It went international — went out all over the world through the Armed Forces Network,” Carter said. “I spent about 10 grand on that song, from my salary back in the 1960s — everything I had. But it was a good lesson; it was a good experience. I spent 16 months promoting that record. Then technology came along and started getting multiple tracks, and I couldn’t compete. I couldn’t keep up with them.” Carter found a musical protégé, but things didn’t work out, and it almost ended Carter’s stint as a musician. “I said next time I got to be sure, because I can’t afford it,” Carter said. To avoid disappointment, Carter decided to bet on someone he could count on — himself. Carter took the plunge and became an independent country act. Along with his first selfproduced album, Carter told the magazine he sent out comment cards. One came back with the comment, “We’re 100 percent kuntry.” “Bingo – I’d never seen country spelled that way.”

The Holmes County Sheriff’s Office served a search warrant at the residence of Frederick Gordon Fondo, 48, and deputies discovered 150 pounds of synthetic marijuana, along with paraphernalia, firearms and cash. He liked it so much, he adopted it as his stage name. His full-length album, “They Call Me H.J. Kuntry,” featured Carter’s friend, Cliff Parker, and a group called the Nashville Cats. Once the album was out in 1975, Carter took off on a 10-year, cross country journey to promote his album. “The way I routed myself across the country, I got a list from the Country Music Association that showed me where every … station was that programmed country music, and I updated my list every year for 10 years. My focus was rural America.” “If I sold 20 (albums), I made a hundred bucks,” he said. “Albums cost me 60 cents to press in Nashville; I sold them for five bucks. Eight-tracks cost me two dollars; I sold them for six dollars. So my margin of profit was enough to buy me a tank of gas, two meals and to replenish my inventory.” In this manner, Carter said he sold more than 30,000 albums. Carter said his mantra on the road was simple. “Five to survive, 10 to win, 20’s plenty.” Doubtless, “Dixie Phonics” will not just survive but will be plentiful by the time Carter is finished with his mission.

bocc from page A1 Protection. It will be two years in January since they got started, and they’ve got five years to meet their criteria.” DeRuntz said Bay County is still not supporting the project. Resident Howard Brock came before the board to say he suggested the board create a five-member committee to attend Water Management meetings and to state he was concerned with the number of houseboats on the Choctawhatchee River and Holmes Creek. “Fifteen years ago, you’d only see one or two and last week I went down there and seen over 11,” Brock said. “I’m concerned that it’s ruining our river. I’m asking the county commission what can we do to preserve our creeks and rivers.” Bush assured Brock the matter would be looked into. Melissa Collins, a volunteer firefighter with the Orange Hill Volunteer Fire Department said she had concerns with Sheriff Bobby Haddock being placed in charge over the fire departments.
“I question the vote on Nov. 9 that put Sheriff Haddock over various agencies,” Collins said. “We were under the impression that there would be a discussion before the vote, but it was hurried along, and now instead of answering to the board, all that power was put in the hands of one man. What’s more is that it’s in the hands of a man that isn’t certified to handle the affairs of a fire department.” Commissioner Todd Abbott said there were multiple fire departments calling to ask who they answer to. Pat Thomas with the Florida League of Cities presented the board with a check for $27,021. “You have Casualty Insurance with Florida League of Cities,” Thomas said. “Because your trust was profitable, you will receive a check from the Florida League of Cities in the amount of $27,021. We appreciate representing the county, and we look forward to continue working with you.” The board approved of giving County Manager David Corbin authority to
shut down and relocated the Clerk of Court’s office in the case the mold clean-up in the courthouse takes longer than a couple of days. County Attorney Jeff Goodman said during the process to repair damage to the Washington County Courthouse, mold was found in the basement, in the third floor and in air duct feeding to several rooms. “The courthouse has already elected not to use the court rooms, and the judges have already moved to the courthouse annex,” Goodman said. “As your legal representative I will have the tendency to act towards overkill, like using a baseball bat instead of flyswatter, especially when involving liability dealing with the health and well-being of staff members. We’re doing this to see if we can get things resolved over the Christmas holiday, however, I recommend that if it takes more than a few days that David have the authority to shut down and relocate the Clerk of Court and give a status report in January.”

“But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Matthew 6: 20-21 pathway of life? That’s your treasure. But while there are treasure chests, there are also trash heaps. A bitter, negative person can end up collecting sewage instead of treasure. If we pour excess energy into thinking about what we hate, we stop remembering what we love. Have you been using your treasure chest as a dumpster? If so, it’s never too late to clean it out. Toss out that useless old junk and replace it with something truly valuable. The Bible addresses this in Matthew 6: 20-21: “But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not
break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” What’s in your heart, gold or garbage? Which would you rather store in your treasure chest, contempt or kindness? If your spiritual treasure chest has become a trash bin of unkindness and hostility, tidy it up. Don’t go through life guided by negative emotions. When dark thoughts come - and they will - let them pass. Don’t scoop them up and put them into your treasure chest. They don’t belong there. Save the treasure chest for actual treasure, those principles that will make you a kinder, better and more ethical human being.
