well the Head Line reads "Project Pipe moving forward, Eco Lifestyles will look elsewhere" in big print this makes me think maybe Project pipe is moving forward.

another quate from story "Both officials expressed confidence that the estimated $12.5 million project would bring 150-160 jobs to the area, and Everett noted that the owner of the company has visited Chipley several times."

so My question is can "a joke" read

When a company like this is moving into a new place, much of the delay is caused by them. They do due diligence. It involves many studies conducted by the new company -- In this case I think the railroad was involved, delays were caused by grants being applied for, other studies and research needed before this big of a move made by Pipe company. At the insistence of the company, the chamber and the BOCC was asked by the company not to discuss this with anyone until it was a done deal. At the same time they were looking at our county, they were also looking at other sites located in the south. Many of the delays were caused by the company itself. The county acted promptly as it was presented the different phases of negotiations. When you have the Company, the federal government, the state, the railroad, DOT, DEP, City of Chipley, and the county involved, it is indeed a lengthy process. When demands were met by the County, the company often came back with additional demands causing more delays.

You need to educate yourself a little more on this subject before speaking your opinion.

I have been to the meetings, and listened to all this.
The county and the city of Chipley can't agree. That's the biggest problem.
The land this business was to sit on, was part of the problem, if I remember right. This land deal was supposed to be settled months and months ago. Yet again, the county commissioners, dragged their feet.

Another case of not working for their COUNTY, but for themselves instead. This could have brought much needed jobs to WC.

Geeeze are the WC Commissioners that afraid of new people and businesses coming to this area?
New businesses means new people that might actually see what's going on here?

You do not want this company here, check out the web site, call the numbers, ask how many employees they have at each site. You will be surprised to find out that this is a scam, nothing more. Ask the Chamber of Commerace in Jackson County about how they got burned by the same people.
Be glad they are going elseware. The good thing is that they are not comming her, the bad thing is that our City Council, County commish, & Chamber, didn't do the research,"due diligence" required, we are just lucky they moved on.
800 jobs my ass....we didn't loose a thing.

Until we replace all of the leadership in this county, such will be the case. Status Quo, you know! Say goodbye to Ted and his followers and you will see things change, and that's a fact.....

Maybe now you will start believing that this county is backwards and behind the times also.... Nobody wants to come to Washington BECAUSE it has nothing. When textile company goes overseas (it will) there will be no backup for people to work.
It's coming, Mexico, China, Taiwan, Japan, Bangladesh are all ready to work for 65 cents an hour. What then??
