BCC approves special assessment resolution


By LIZ SINCLAIR
In a unanimous vote on
Dec. 14, the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners approved a resolution
which would allow the county
to create, impose and collect
a levy on property owners in
the unincorporated area of
the county for stormwater
services.
Adoption of the resolution


does not initiate the levy,,but
puts the mechanism in place
to do so in the future.
Government Services
Group, Inc., the firm hired by
the county to prepare the
documents, recommended to
County Administrator Ron-
nie Bell that the resolution be
adopted by the end of 2004,
"as the consent of the county
property appraiser and tax


collector is not required when
the adoption occurs prior to
Jan. 1" for the ability to place
it on the November tax no-
tices.

According to the Florida
Department of Enviornmen-
tal Protectionr, there are over
95 local governments, cities
and counties, in the state
which have dedicated sources


of revenue for stormwater
programs. Assessment meth-
ods vary. They can be mea-
sured by physical use of a
property (ex. residential,
commercial urban, agricul-
tural), amount of service re-
quired, linear frontage foot,
per.parcel or a unit measure-
ment, relative value of a
property or a combination of
factors.


GREGORY M. ANCHORS is the new assistant state at-
torney in Walton County.


WC gets full-time

assistant state attorney


By LIZ SINCLAIR
Walton County has a new
head of the local state
attorney's office. As a full-
time assistant state attorney,
Greg Anchors took the posi-
tion about a month ago. He
will supervise the office and
prosecute felonies.
The move to a full-time po-
sition in Walton County re-
flects the population growth
in the county, Anchors said.
With the anticipated growth
comes more crime, he said.
There are three attorneys
working under Anchors.


However, one is currently
serving in Kuwait. He hopes
to have a staff of five attor-
neys soon.
Anchors has spent 15 years
in the state attorney's office,
most recently in Crestview
and before that in Milton. He
spent 20 year in private prac-
tice.

Anchors' family roots are in
DeFuniak Springs. He was
born and raised in the area.
Anchors replaces; former
Assistant State Attorney
Clayton Adkinson.

new hope to

Walton County families

Dr. Susan Turner accepts senior position in Escambia County


Dr. Susan Turner, MD, di-
rector of the Walton County
Health Department, ac-
cepted a promotional oppor-
tunity and will be leaving to
become the new senior phy-
sician at the Escambia
County Health Department.
"This is a great opportunity
for me to grow professionally
at a larger, very successful
and progressive county
health department," said
Turner. "I leave the Walton
CHD with mixed emotions as
I pursue this career opportu-
nity to move toward leading
a larger health department
in the future."
Dr. Turner will begin her
duties in Escambia County
on Friday, January 14, 2005.
Dr. Turner has served as
Walton County's Health Of-
ficer for 9 years. Under her
leadership Walton CHD has
advanced to a department
delivering state of the art
public health protections.
WCHD officials say that
Walton County can continue


to expect the Walton CHD to
effectively promote and pro-
tect the public's health while
we search for a new admin-
istrator or director. The Wal-
ton CHD team will be led by
Acting Administrator Crystal
Steele, who has advanced
environmental public health
training, many years of expe-
rience, and the needed lead-
ership competencies.
Walton CHD staff mem-
bers say they will miss Dr.
Turner, but are so proud of
her success.

In a letter to the- Walton
County Commission, dated
Dec. 28, 2004, Turner said,I
have enjoyed serving as Wal-
ton County's Health Officer
for the past 9 years, and I
know that Walton County
will continue to grow and
prosper under the Board's
leadership.
The Board has given the
Walton County Health De-
partment tremendous sup-
port over the years, and I


hope it will continue to do so.
I have loved being part of
this beautiful county, and


being part of the county team
along with the Board's many
wonderful employees."

BCC looks at expansion and consolidation


The Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) took a last of the year
look at some expansion and
consolidation at its Dec. 14
meeting.
Brought before the board
by administrator Ronnie
Bell, the BCC approved a re-
quest to bid on an estimate
$200,000 renovation remodel
at the South Walton Annex
building to better accommo-
date the growing building
and planning departments.


Staff is being moved to modu-
lar buildings while the work
is being done.
The BCC gave Sheriff
Johnson use of county owned
property north of DeFuniak
Springs. Known as the Lang
property, it is located near
the landfill and considered at
the time of purchase to be
used as the site for an ani-
mal shelter.

Johnson made the request
to the board after the Walton


County Association of Re-
tarded Citizens (ARC) asked
for rent on a building the
sheriff's department has
been allowed to use for free.
Rent would be about $14,000
per year, Johnson's request
letter said. This is not in his
budget.

Plans include erecting one
or two pole barns for storage,
including archival records,
boats and trucks uniforms,
equipment evidence vehicles.


Fuel tanks stored at ARC will
also be moved.
Future use could include a
hangar and landing pad, and
training for SWAT, investiga-
tions and emergency opera-
tions.

The Lang property is 20
acres purchased by the
county in 2000 for $140,000.
It was initially intended to be
used to expand the landfill,
and then considered as a site
for an animal shelter.


"The reason we exist is to
bring new hope to low-in-
come families who need ad-
equate housing," said W.
Russell Meade, founder and
president of New Hope Con-
struction, Inc., a non-profit
company located in
Hendersonville, TN. That
hope is coming here to Wal-
ton County.
Habitat for Humanity of
Walton County has recently
developed a partnership with
New Hope Construction to
meet the needs of underprivi-
leged families here in our
community. Walton County
Habitat has built eight
homes since its inception
eight years ago. Those homes
were hand-built by volun-
teers with monetary and in-
kind donations. It is a long
process to "stick build" a
home. The original house de-
signs varied widely and could
not always be duplicated, but
the partnership with New
Hope will change all that.
Meade, a construction pro-
fessional, made a study of
Habitat housing when he
first became involved with
his local Tennessee affiliate.
Using the latest methods and
technology of the construc-


By LIZ SINCLAIR
The goal is to make county
operations more efficient
Walton County Administra-
tor Ronnie Bell began by re-
viewing the public works de-
partment and at the board of
county commissioners (BCC)
meeting held Dec. 14, he pro-
posed hiring an operations
manager for that division, to
assist Director Russ Barry in
the day-to-day running of
public works. The BCC gave
the go-ahead and the job has
been posted.
. The operations manager
will supervise the road and
bridge departments, the ser-
vice shop and stormwater
management. Requirements
include a civil engineering
degree, and seven years of ex-
perience or "equivalent field


tion industry, he designed a
way to make the building
more efficient and the homes
less expensive. "The more I
worked at it, the more I real-
ized how possible it is to re-
duce the cost construction,"
said Meade.
In 1996, Meade took an
early retirement from Bell
South and put all his energy
into creating a 501(c) (3) non-
profit organization. By
spring of 1997, New Hope
partnered with local church
volunteers to build the first
New Hope house. Meade's
company pre-frames and kits
up as much of the house as
possible at the plant in
Hendersonville. It is then
loaded on trucks and brought
to the building site for assem-
bly. Like a puzzle, each piece
is coded for volunteers to put
together. Manuals and on-
site supervision is also avail-
able.
"Walton County Habitat
will save time and money by
using New Hope," said Con-
struction Chair Jay Gates. "I
can't begin to tell you how
humbled we are by Meade,
his mission, and his ability to
help us build housing for our
Habitat families," she said.


experience to perform duties.
The pay range is between
$38,953-$75,589.
The hire will not require a
change in the budget, Bell
said, the funding is available.
Bell explained that Barry
was overloaded, that there
was a deficiency in the de-
partment. Commissioner
Larry Jones added that the
new hire would not make
Barry's job easier, but would
make the department run
better. As director of Public
Works, Barry oversees all the
county road and bridge work,
including engineering and
utilities coordination, the
county landfill, North Walton
Mosquito Control and grants
pertaining to these services.
Public works has a budget
of about $28 million.

Bachen has learned to cook.
He initially apprenticed at
Gustaf-Anders in Los Ange-

Ulf, the chef-owner, taught
Bachan the principles and the
basis of cooking, Bachan said.
After working there he knew
why things were done the
way they were. ,
Bachen has been an execu-

inn keeper at the hotel, he has
kept one foot in the kitchen.
He makes the pastries and


baked goods available in the

served with coffee, tea and

Bachan made blintz filled

guests the day he was inter-

are eggs Benedict, others
there may be frittata or om-

Editor : ,
I agree with B.B. Anderson from Fort Walton Beach, that'
wrote,a letter to the editor. Why was the DeFuniak Christ-
mas display of lights name changed from Christmas Reflec-
tions to Holiday Retlections? Are y6u trying to take Christ
out of Christmas? .. .
The United States was founded by people who believe in
God. The United States Constitution informs us that no law
will be made on religion. The A.C.L.U. wants to take Christ
'out of Christmas and wants to remove religion out of our
schools. Also, they want us to remove the Ten Command-
ments out of our courthouses. Wake up, Christians, we need
to stand up the A.C.L.U. and not let them tell us what we'
' can and cannot do. Was this name changed by being voted
on? Did all the people who live in DeFuniak know about the
name change? No one person or organization has the last
word. ,
The A.C.L.U. wants to change this countryifrom the free-
dom of religion and a Democratic nation into a country like.
the Communist Party. If this is not stopped, aind God is re-
moved from the United States, we will no longer be blessed'
by God and the only thing that, will save us is Armageddon.
If we turn against God, our country will be torn asunder. If
you read the Bible, you know it will happen.
So wh6 are the people who wanted to change the name to
Holiday Reflections and how can we remove these people
from office? We need people who are not cowards and do not
let the A.C.L.U. tell them how to run this city. Write letters
to the board of directors of DeFuniak and let them know
that you want the name changed back to Christmas Reflec-
tions. Remember every person who is on the board works
for you, not. to the A.C.L.U. Also we should find out what
stores and organizations had something to do with chang-
inig the name to Holiday Reflections and then we should
boycott them.
I did not .spend .three years in Vietnam to allow the
A.C.L.U, to turn us away from Christmas and God. Together
we stand, divided we fall. God bless America.

Editor:
Recently the people of Walton County have learned that
the, Department of Children & Familie'sService Center (Eco-
nomic Self-Sufficient Branch, i.e., food stamps, aid to the
elderly) in DeFuniak Springs will be closed effective March
1, 2005, and the remaining workers transferred to Ft. Wal-
ton Beach.
In a front page article in the Herald on December 30, 2004,
a Mr. Jim Maddox of DCF, was quoted as saying that there
will be "live people, an actual presence" in Walton County.
The article stated that some-17.5 people will be affected, ie.
fired or, moved to Ft. Walton Beach.
It doesn't take a genius to figure who comes out on the
short end of this stick Walton County. The 17.5 DCF work-
ers see an average of 100 people every month and handle
over 250 cases per month or 3,200 yearly. Further, as we all
know, Walton County is a growing county. This means that.-
if DCF leaves one or two people at Jobs Plus, that these
"live people" will-have to do the work of some 15-16 people.
No amount of sugar-coating can make the people of Walton
County swallow this pill.
What this means is that the very poorest among us and
those elderly and their families, who provide care for them,
will have to at one time or another, take the hour-long one-
way trip to Ft. Walton Beach. How can over 3,200 yearly
clients who can barely make it to the service center in De-
Funiak Springs make it to Ft. Walton Beach? DCF informs
the people of Walton that this is because of budget cuts?
How will this save DCF funds if the state of Florida is obli-
gated to a lease at the Hope Building in DeFuniak Springs
through July 2007? The short answer is it won't. Keeping
the service center in DeFuniak Springs through at least July
2007 make sense and will not increase cost to the state of
Florida.
Working to keep the DeFuniak Springs Service Center is'
really a "no-brainer" for our elected state officials. Ofcourse,
as is everything related to government. this; too is political,
and is up to our state elected representatives Rep. Don
Brown. Sen. Durrell Peaden. and Sen. Charles Clary to rep-
resent and protect the people of Walton County.
On December 21 the Walton County Commissioners
unanimously passed a resolution asking the legislative del-
egation to do all they can to do all they can to keep the De-
Funiak Springs Service Center open for the people of Wal-
ton County. I urge you to call these offices and ask our elected
officials to serve the people of Walton County by keeping
the Walton County Service Center open: Rep. Don Brown
892-8431, Sen. Durrell Peaden-689-0556, Sen. Charlie Clary.
833-9159.

E ditor, .' ". ,
.Mr. Bush wants to spend twenty niMillion dollars of our tax
money to have a Christmas party for our soldiers who have
returned from Iraq at the White House'. What about the
soldiers who are still stationed in Iraq? What kind of Christ-
mas are they going to have? Can we afford to spend that
kind of money, when it could be used to balance the budget
or help save Social Security?
If I can remember, isn't that what Mr. Bush promised when-'
he ran for president both times? If ypa4,reUL want to, bdl-
ance the budget and restore Social Security. you need tq 4i
spending, not spend money on parties. What about tlhk
people,1ike myself, who make under ten thousand dollars a
-year and cannot afford to buy a Christmas tree or gifts?
What about the people who have no family or the old person
who has nothing to do on Christmas'? These are the people
who have no one to wish them a 'Merry Christmas' and'to
them, Christmas is just another day.
We can send Christmas cards to the soldiers in Iraq and
we can wish the soldiers who have returned a 'Mer'ry Christ-
mas' and a 'Happy New Year', but we do not need to spend
twenty million dollars of our tax money.

The number one


complaint for 2004


Florida. Agriculture and
Consumer Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson has re-
leased the list of the top ten
complaints-of 2004. and "Do
Not Call List" complaints
dropped to second place for
the first time in years. The'
department also obtained an
increase in refunds to con-
sumers over last. year, even-
though the number of com-
plaints was down.
in 2004, the number one
complaint among industries'
regulated by the department.
involved travel and vacation
plans. There were 4,312 com-
plaints lodged,, an increase of
about 45 percent over the pre-
vious.year. Telemarketing
fell to second place with 3,673,
consumer complaints in 2004.'
The department's Division
of Consumer Services .was
able to recover $2,784,919 in
refunds and services for con-,
sumers this past year. That
is more than a half-million-
dollar increase over 2003,
despite the fact that the total
number of complaints coming
into the div vision dropped. In
2003, the Division of Con-
sumer Services 'received
31,274 complaints. That
compares with 23,718 in'
2004.
The Division of Consumer,
Services serves as the clear-
inghouse for consumer com-
plaints in Florida. In addi-
tion, it regulates nearly a
dozen industries. The divi-
sion can take a number of
actions against businesses it
regulates,' including levying


penalties, revoking registra-
tions or shutting down a busi-
ness altogether; 'The division
also, tires to mediate com-
-plaints for consumers against
industries that are not regu-
lated by the department.
While the division doesn't
have jurisdiction over nohn-
regulated industries, the di-
vision contacts businesses on
behalf of consumers in an ef-
fort to res6lve their disputes.
Price-gouging complaint's
ranked third with 3.023 re-
ceivxed. Price-gouging wasn't
even in the top 10 in 2003. the
change brought about by the
state of emergency declared
during four hurricanes
Florida suffered in 2004.
Rounding the top 10 list are:
motor vehicle repair with
2,212 complaints; credit/
banking with 1,019 com-
plaints; business opportuni-
ties/franchise.with 977 com-
plaints; health studios with
684 complaints; telemarket-
ers (hot involving the "Do Not
Call List") with 672; com-
plaints, and construction
with 631 complaints.
Bronson urged consumers
to call the department's Con-
sumer Hotline at 1-800-
HELPFLA (1-800-435-7352.1
to find out the complaint his-
tory of a company and any
other pertinent information
prior to signing any contracts
or making a purchase. Con-
sumers can also file com-
plaints on-line through the
department's web site at
www.800helpfla.com.

another kind of record


By BRUCE COLLIER,
Irving Berlin's bestselling
song "White Christmas" was
more than a dream for resi-
dents of Dayton and south-
western Ohio's Miami Valley
during the holiday week. The
Herald was present on De-'
cember 22 and 23 when a
snowfall averaging 16 inches
(up to 24 inches in some ar-
eas) dropped on the Miami
Valley. This shattered all
records for one "snow event,"
including 12.9 inches in the
"Blizzard of 1978'. Flights
were canceled, cars stranded,
and snowplow operators en-
riched for a three-day period
following the snowfall.
Travelers to southwestern


Ohio's Cincinnati/Northern
Kentucky Regional Airport
faced further complications
by Comair's computer-in-
duced decision to cancel all
flights. Comair's decision af-
fected some 30,000 travelers
in 118 cities. Luggage snafus
at US Airways parted thou-
sands from their bags for
days. At the intersection of
Interstates 70 and 75 in Day-
ton, car's and trucks ap-
peared to be parked for miles
as they crawled their way to'
cleared road.
Temperatures gradually
began to rise within a week
of the snowfall, beginning the
melting process. Neverthe-
less, the demands of holiday


Local man arrested on drug

tigators and deputies from

errands had led some to take
matters, and shovels, into
their own hands; On Decem-
ber 26. Montgomery County
Coroner Jim Davis reported
at least eight deaths sus-
tained by shovelers with as-
sorted risk factors such as
heart disease, diabetes, obe-
sity or smoking. More patient
residents waited for the kid
next door, freelance
snowplowers, municipal em-
ployees, and eventually the
Ohio National Guard, which
mobilized for snow removal
efforts.
By New Year's Day, tem-

the mid-50s, with some rain-
fall. Residents reported that
the snow was "nearly'gone."
The White Christmas snowv-

Set attainable health goals in 2005


By DEBORA CAMPBELL,
MS CHES WCHD
There is no snap-your-fin-
ger-and-poof magic to chang-
ing behaviors. The first step
in changing anything is set-
ting, attainable goals.
Let's look at a goal to lose
weight. There are many
short-term goals that can be
set for yourself to attain this
long-term goal:

.*Walk for 30 minutes each


*Eat fruit and vegetables
with every meal, and as
snacks throughout the. day
*Reduce the number of
hours spent watching TV and
spend time exercising)

*Drink more water; 64
ounces really isn't that much
(about three 20-ounce
bottles)
*Plan meals and make a
grocery list (include fruits &
vegetables in the menu)
Eat low-calorie snacks


(fruit, vegetables, popcorn,
etc.)
*Limit bread to one piece
per meal, or eliminate it al-
together
*Take the dog for a walk
Take children for a walk
*Share an entr6e when
eating out and add an extra
salad and split one with a
friend.
*Have at least two serv-
ings of non-fat or low fat
dairy products each day
*Have gourmet coffee after


dinner instead of dessert
As for French fries, order
the smallest portion and
share them, or don't eat them
all .
*Collect nutritious recipes
to try
*Switch to high-fiber
breads and cereals (at least
three grams of fiber per serv-
ing .
When grilling a steak,
grill fish, too; then share both
for a smaller amount of high-
fat meat

Eat peanuts live longer


Peanuts are often thought
of as high-fat foods, but party
goers can feel a little better
about reaching for the
roasted nuts at holiday gath-
erings this season.
Not only do peanuts con-
tain the so-called "good" kind
of fat, but University of
Florida researchers have
found they also are high in a
wide variety of helpful anti-
oxidants, rivaling the fruits
often sought out by health-
conscious consumers.
"When it comes to antioxi-
dant content, peanuts are
right up there with strawber-
ries," said Steve Talcott, an
assistant professor of food
science and human nutrition
at UF's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences. "We
expected a fairly high anti-
oxidant content in peanuts,
but we were a bit shocked to
find that they're as rich in
antioxidants as many kinds
of fruit."
Talcott and other UF re-
searchers tested the antioxi-
danti content of a dozen dif-
ferent peanut varieties in a
study published recently in
an issue of the journal Food
Chemistry dated May 2005.
Antioxidants are chemicals,
that block the aging effects of
free radicals unstable mol-
ecules naturally occurring in
the human body that damage
living cells. The damage
caused by free radicals has
been linked to heart disease,
stroke, certain cancers and
macular degeneration of the
eye.
"If you compare them (pea-
nuts) to other foods people


think of as rich in antioxi-
dants mostly fruits and ber-
ries peanuts come. out
somewhere in the middle,"
Talcott said. "They're no
match for the foods at the top
of the' scale, such as pome-
granate, but they do rival
other foods that people eat
just for their antioxidant con-
tent."
Talcott said roasted pea-
nuts are about as rich in an-
tioxidants as blackberries or
strawberries, and are far
richer in the chemicals than
fruits such as apples, carrots
or beets.
The findings add to the
growing reputation peanuts
are getting'for their healthy
benefits.
"We already know from
previous studies that includ-
ing peanuts and peanut but-
ter in a healthful diet can
lower cholesterol, help people
lose weight and prevent type
2 diabetes," said Kristen
Ciuba, a nutritionist for the
Peanut Institute, a nonprofit
organization in Albany, GA,
funded by the peanut indus-
try.
The UF researchers' find-
ings were part of a broader
study designed to measure
the nutritional differences
between traditional peanut
.breeds and the growing num-
ber ofhigh oleic peanuts now
available to peanut growers.
Agronomy professor Dan
Gorbet. who heads UF's pea-
nut-breeding program, said it
should be possible to breed
the nuts with high antioxi-
dant levels, in mind.

Crestview man struck and killed on SR-189


By BRUCE COLLIER
A 44-year-old Crestview
maria was struck and killed by
a car on SR-189, just south
of Bowen Road, in Okaloosa
County. The accident oc-
curred on Sunday. Jauiary 2.-
SFlorida Highway Patrol'
investigators Sgt. M.C.


Fulford and Cpl. M. Weeks
report that a 2000 Chevrolet
two-door was traveling south
on SR-189, driven by 36-year-
old Russell F. Gunter. of 117
,;Vedgewood" Court iTh
Crestview.
A pedestrian, 44-year-old
James W. Brooks, of 4772


Live Oak Church Road in
Crestview, was walking west
across the road. The area
.where Brooks was walking
was reportedly '"in a rural
community with rio overhead
lights." Gunter apparently,
did not see Brooks in time to
avoid a collision. The car


struck Brooks with its,right
front hood and side. Brooks
sustained fatal, injuries.
.Gunter, who was using a
seatbelt, was unhurt,
No drugs or alcohol were
involved, and 'no charges
have been filed.


FDLE warns of tsunami e-mail scams


The Florida Department of
Law Enforcement is warning
citizens to beware of one of
the latest e-mail "phishing"
scams, this one using the
Asian tsunami tragedy as a
ploy to bilk people out of mon-
etary donations and steal
their identity in the process.
Phishing scam.e-mails are
designed to trick the recipi-
ents into disclosing personal
information authentication
data such as account
usernames, passwords,
credit card numbers, social
security numbers., and home
addresses. Most of these e-
mails look official and as a
result, recipients often re-
spond to them, resulting in
financial losses, identity
theft, and other fraudulent
activity.
Recent news reports indi-
cate that phishing e-mails
may be circulating that at-
tempt to exploit people's con'-
cerns for the tsunami victims
by asking them to donate
money to what appears, on
the surface, to be a charitable
relief fund. In order to donate
money, people are asked to
enter their personal informa-
tion.

"Since there has already
been an arrest of a UK citi-
zen using this scam and prey-
ing on people's concern over
the tsunami victims, it is im-
portant to educate the citi-
zens of Florida to not fall for
this ploy," said Bob Breeden,
special agent supervisor for
the FDLE Computer Crime
Center. "Emails sent to -you
requesting a donation should

APPLICATIONS



ATTENTION TO APPLICANTS:

CHANGE IN SUBMISSION PROCESS


* Application packages will be accepted between

Monday, January 3, 2005, 8:00 a.m., and Friday,

January 14, 2005, 5:00 p.m.


Incomplete application packages will not be

accepted and will be returned to the applicant

immediately.


* Complete packages will


be accepted and


assigned a number which will be provided to the

applicant.


The number will be used in a "lottery" to deter-

mine the order in which each application will be

reviewed and forwarded to public hearings.. This

approach affords all completed applications an

equal opportunity for being considered.


Each year, Walton County is allowed to change

land use designations for eighty (80) acres of land.
If this first round of applications does not afford

'eighty (80) acres of changes, a second round of

year.

ful red and white linens. The
beautiful red, green, gold and

business meeting, the
treasurer's and secretary's
reports were read and ap-
proved.
As many members have
had inquiries regarding the
Chautauqua festivities in
DeFuniak Springs in the up-
coming months, Open Door
Club member Jane Wright
has volunteered to update
everyone on the new and ever
more exciting Chautauqua
events at the January meet-
ing. Sandra Golden, co-ad-
ministrator of RHD (Re-
sources for Human Develop-
ment a local adult day
training program for develop-
mentally disabled adults)


updated the club on their an-
nual Operation Fruit Basket
community project for the
Walton County Convalescent
Center now known as the
Chautauqua Rehabilitation
and Nursing Center (CRNC).
For this project, the RHD
clients collect fruit baskets
all year long and have fund
raisers to provide an indi-
vidually wrapped basket of
assorted fruits for each resi-
dent of the Convalescent
Center, during the Christmas
holidays.
The clients hand deliver
the baskets several days be-
fore Christmas and also en-
tertain the residents with an
array of Christmas carols.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JANUARY 6, 2005


Sig praise


from the heart


By Dr. Robert M. Jaye

In Ephesians 5:19 we are told to sing in our worship. If I
had a life to live over, I think I would like to write hymns
and songs of worship, such as the people of God might sing
when they praise Him. My highest wish would be to write a
song for the spirits to sing before the throne. What a noble
thing for anyone to write for the blood-bought ones who praise
Him day and night. But that is reserved for David or some'-
one else.
In singing during the worship of God, we do not come to-
gether to amuse our selves, to display our powers of melody,
or our aptness of creating harmony. We come to pay our
adoration at the footstool of the great King, to whom alone
be glory for ever and ever. There is no more music to God's


ear, I think, than there is of holy love and holy devotion.
Music should never be a performance alone. It must be
from the heart. Our singing should be such that God hears
it with pleasure. The choir, the singing group should present
with as much heart as with art. There should be good musi-
cal sound, yet it should awaken great spiritual emotion.
Do we sing as much as the birds do? Yet what have birds
to sing about compared to us. Do we sing as much as the
angels do? Yet they were never redeemed by the blood of
Christ. Shall angels exceed us? They may have done so, but
let us use their example of praise. Let us sing day by day in
our hearts and minds. And night by night, let us pour forth
our souls in sacred song because of the redeeming work of
Christ.

Australian Dream Arthritis Cream
Stops Arthritis Pain

In 15 Minutes or
SYour Money Back!

Australian Dream Arthritis Cream is a special for-
mula of two all-natural ingredients combined to stop
arthritis pain in its tracks: Emu oil and Glucosamine.
Emu oil has been used in the Outback of Australia for
hundreds of years to ease arthritic joint pain and pro-
mote healing. Glucosamine is best known for its ability
to repair damaged cartilage and lubricate the joints.

Australian Dream Arthritis Cream contains no cap-
saicin. So there is NO BURNING sensation or redden-
ing of the skin. And it has NO ODOR! There are no col-
ored dyes to stain your skin or clothing.

"My doctor's have been saying the only way to stop

A Moment of Sience
A moment of silence, my
head bowed in prayer, I'll
spend for the victims of Tsu-
namis over there! I'll pray for
the families that were left in
grief, and hope that 'soon
they'll get some relief! Their
lives were taken by huge an-
gry waves, while others gave
their all, trying to save!
The world is shocked to
hear of the lost and not able
to count the destruction and
cost!
Every day is precious, it
may be the last! Time
marches on, for some it's too
fast. I'll remember to hug the
ones I love, And cherish what
was given by God up above!
A moment of silence I'll
spend this day and pray that
help will come their way. I'll
light a candle in remem-
brance of them and those
who are left, that are over-
whelmed.
Mary Whiddon


Who Started
Christmas

By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC
Sponsored by T.P. Motors

Start the year out right in appreciating those who la-
bor among you. Go out of the way, become persistent in
spreading the love of Jesus.
Paul gives an example of two women who decided to
shoot at each other, instead allowing Jesus to remain the
focus in their lives. Read this account carefully, and
prayerfully.
It happened to two women who had served on the spiri-
tual front lines with the Apostle Paul. They had the un-
usual names of Euodia and Syntyche.
In Philippians 4:2-3. Paul says, "I plead with Euodia
and Syntyche to agree with each other in the Lord. Yes,
and I ask you, loyal yokefellow, help these women who
have contended at my side in the cause of the Gospel...
whose names are in the book of life."
Paul is almost on his knees begging here for these two
women, who used to fight together for the lives of lost
people, to stop fighting with each other.
Somewhere along the way, something came up that
made these two warriors take their eye off the Great Com-
mission.
They started shooting at each other, acting as if she's
the enemy instead of the prince of darkness.
Satan loves nothing more than. to ,see Christians ido,
ing hisaworkfor-him ... wounding a.child of God; discom'3s
*ginga child of God, damagiiig the reputation of another'
child of God, distracting and derailing someone who could
be making a difference in the battle.
In combat, a soldier is crushed when he realizes he has
wounded one of his own.
But often among believers, we feel like we've done a
good thing by bringing down that brother or sister, a righ-
teous thing they deserve it, after all.
But none of us has the right to shoot at someone who's
been purchased with the same blood of Christ we have.
When believers shoot at each other, there are fewer
things more damaging to the cause of Christ, more dis-
couraging to our young people, more disillusioning to
unbelievers, and more heartbreaking to Jesus.
Hudson Taylor's successor in the leadership of China
Inland Mission knew how mission critical it is to fight
the right battle and the right enemy. He said, "I will not
send a person to the mission field unless he has learned
to wrestle with the evil one. If he has not learned to wrestle
with the evil one, he will wrestle with his fellow mission-
aries."
Your brother, your sister they're not the real enemy.
Wrestling with them isn't the real battle. Don't waste
any more bullets on one of your own.
In the army of God, "friendly fire" is not only the ulti-
mate tragedy, it is an enemy victory.

New year, new lawsuit


against the county


THIS SUNSET TOAST
below, celebrated the 180th
anniversary of Walton
County's founding. On
Dec.29, 1824, Walton County
became the eighth county cre-
ated in Florida. Brenda Rees,
a Walton county native and
local historian, and her hus-
band Lane invited friends
and neighbors to start a 20-
year countdown to the 200th
anniversary in 2024.


The Rees' plan a yearly
December gathering for each
of the nineteen remaining
years Dec. 29th's until 2024.
A special bottle of wine has
been set aside for the county's
200th anniversary, held aloft
by Santa Rosa Beach resident'
Chick Huettel, right, ,also a
local historian. Those folks
lucky enough to attend the
2024 party will enjoy it.


By TIANA LARSEN
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) and Harris Invest-
ments LLC (Doodle Harris)
are being sued over a pro-
posed development on CR-
30A, known as Lakewood
Development.
Two separate legal actions
filed by Dennis and Karla
Taylor, neighbors to the prop-
erty located on the southeast
corner of CR-30A and Lake-
wood Drive, challenge the
development order issued by
the BCC.
At issue is the vegetative
preservation requirement for
the sand pine and scrub oak
plant community located on
the 1.82-acre site. The devel-
opment order authorized
nine single-family residences
and a two-story, 12,000-
square foot office building.
The Taylors allege that the
BCC is required to follow the
county's comprehensive plan
and land development code
(LDC) when they issue devel-
opment orders, and that the
Harris project allows for de-
velopment without regard to
a section of the code impos-
ing certain native vegetation
preservation requirements.
In addition, the suit alleges
that the development order is
inconsistent with the com-
prehensive plan require-
ments for preservation
within a designated scenic
dinrri r r


Declaratory relief and ini-
junctive relief are sought in
one lawsuit; the second suit
seeks a writ of certiorari re-
view of the final development
order signed, by the BCC on
Nov. 23.
The heart of the matter is
whether or not the preserva-
tion requirement (50 percent
for this particular plant com-
munity) applies to parcels
less than two acres in size.
When the planning depart-


ment initially reviewed the
development application, it
notified the developer last
August that a correction was
required, specifically that
"Until the preservation re-
quirements, of LDC
13.02.00D2 are amended or
rescinded, they are in place
and in effect. Incorporation of
50 percent preservation
within the development is
see LAWSUIT Pg 2C


THIS 1.82-ACRE SITE on the corner of CR-30A and Lake-
wood Drive is the subject of two recent lawsuits filed against
Walton County and Harris Investments LLC, owner of the
property. The county issued a development order for nine
residences and an office building; the lawsuits claim the or-
der should not have been issued because the requirement to
preserve 50 percent of this native pine scrub and oak tree

Not only do over a dozen
porous groine structures
stand between Rosemary
Beach and Inlet Beach ac-
cess, but it is noticeable that
more sand has accumulated
along the shore in that sec-
tion within the past few
weeks.
The amount of sand in-
crease is under investigation,
but some of the groines have
already had to be moved up-
ward by as much as three feet
due to sand accumulation in
some parts of the 2,000-foot
project area, according to Jay
Tiedeberg of Benedict Engi-
neering, contractor for the
experimental beach recovery
project. Techicians monitor
the structures and raise
them as sand builds up
around them.
Prior to Hurricane Ivan's
visit last September, this sec-
tion of Inlet Beach was al-
ready designated as Walton
County's second most badly
eroded beachfront areas, and
Ivan added not only insult to
injury, but more injury.
In October, the state De-
partment of Environmental
Protection approved this ex-
perimental project---Walton
County's first---employing
high-tech porous structures
extending some 130 feet into
the gulf. The unique project,
which was set up last month,
is being funded partially
through special state funds
devoted to experimental
beach recovery methods and
partially with special South
Walton Tourist Development


ei -.se porous grJLUJO .eslave
been found to build beaches
by slowing down, trapping
and thus accumulating a por-
tion of the sand that is
washed through them by
wave action. Results may be
small as compared with
dredge-and-fill beach nour-
ishment, but even smaller
accumulations can be valu-
able in moderating winter
storm damage---and nudging
and supporting nature's
gradual beach building pro-
cess.
Walton County's investiga-
tions found large-scale beach
nourishment to be impracti-
cal for Inlet Beach due to the
excessive distance to the only
suitable sand source,
Destin's East Pass ebb shoal.
With structures similar to
those in use on Inlet Beach,
in 2002 Benedict Engineer-
ing succeeded in adding 20 to
30 feet of dry beach to two
eroded locations on Okaloosa
Island.
Tiedeberg said the 2,000-
foot project area on Inlet
Beach was surveyed prior to
the placement of the groines.
Now he is awaiting results of
a recent survey that will de-
termine how much beach re-
covery has so far been accom-
plished. The structures will
remain in place up until May
1, the start of the sea turtle
nesting season.
He commented that the
Inlet Beach project has al-
ready attracted visitors from
Pensacola, Puerto Rico,
Spain and Italy. He added
that he will be traveling to

Blue Christmas for

two store employees


Three suspects were ar-
rested Tuesday, December
29, in connection with a
$15,000 theft operation at
Bealls Outlet, 839 Harbor
Blvd., Destin.
The stolen merchandise
has been returned to Bealls
Outlet with the arrests of
Janice Ruth Shirley, 49,
Britton June Morgan, 22,
and Marsha Dawn Carpen-
ter, 51, all of Destin. An in-
vestigation by the store's dis-
trict loss prevention inspec-
tor developed evidence impli-
cating Morgan, a store super-
visor, and Shirley, a store
clerk. The pair rang up and
passed along merchandise to
members of Morgan's family
numerous times without re-
ceiving proper payment.



LAWSUIT


required."

That particular section of
the LDC addresses vegeta-
tive preservation within the
CR-30A scenic corridor. It
states that vegetation shall
be preserved in accordance
with another code section,
4.06.02, that refers to parcels
two acres or greater in size.
However, 13.02.00D2 states
that references to parcel size
do not apply to the scenic cor-
ridor section and that pres-
ervation requirements apply.
to all parcels.
On Sept. 28, George Ralph
Miller, Harris's attorney, ap-
peared before the BCC and
argued that there was a con-
flict between the LDC and
the comprehensive plan,
which only requires preser-
vation on parcels two acres
or larger.
Following the Sept. 28
meeting, planning staff took
the position that it was their
understanding that the BCC
instructed staff to apply the
native vegetation require-
ments to parcels two acres or
greater in size.
At a subsequent BCC
meeting on Oct. 12, Anita
Page, executive director of


On nine separate occa-
sions, Shirley admitted to
giving unauthorized dis-
counts on merchandise to
friends and personally taking
merchandise over the last
two months. Stolen merchan-
dise was recovered at
Shirley's residence and per-
sonal vehicle. Carpenter, an
acquaintance of Shirley's,
came to Bealls on two sepa-
rate occasions and carried
out two shopping carts filled
with merchandise without
paying.

Carpenter is charged with
felony retail theft. Shirley is
charged with grand theft and
use of fraudulently obtained
or false receipt. Morgan is
charged with petit theft.



From Front


the South Walton Commu-
nity Council, argued that
there is no conflict, because
the board was focusing on the
wrong section of the compre-
hensive plan. Commissioner
Tim Pauls suggested Page
put herself on a future
agenda to discuss the issue.
Page explained later to the
Beach Breeze that compre-
hensive plan policy L.1.9.3
"establishes and approves
Route 30A as a scenic corri-
dor" and also states that
"more stringent sign and
landscape requirements
shall apply," specifically the
code section requiring pres-
ervation on all parcels, re-
gardless of size.
On Nov. 8, the BCC ap-
proved the development or-
der for Lakewood Develop-
ment.
"The Board (BCC) has no
authority to refuse to apply
section 13.02.00D2 of the
LDC and policy L.1.9.3 of the
comprehensive plan to an
application for development
of the subject property, yet
the development order does
just that," states the Taylor
lawsuit.
No court dates have yet
been set.

treated:the ,'public'-:t 'a 2056
'Season Preview, and 'cham-
pagne reception on December
29 at the Seaside Community
Hall. Artistic Director/master
of ceremonies Craige Hoover
began the evening by an-
nouncing that Seaside Rep
has signed a lease for the
community hall. The theatre
is taking its first step toward
offering a year-round season
of plays, improve comedy, and
an annual playwright's festi-
val. Following a pre-show re-
ception with champagne and
hors d'oeuvres, actors and
Seaside volunteers staged
excerpts from the summer
2005 season.
First up was "The Fisher-
man and His Wife," Larry
and Vivian Snipes' adapta-
tion of the Grimm Brothers
fairy tale. "Fisherman" tells
the story of a poor fisherman
and his greedy wife, and their
encounter with a magic
flounder. The talking fish
grants the couple a series of
wishes, each grander than
the one before. The excerpt
was acted by Craige Hoover,
Christien Fontaine, Joelle
Easlick, and Riso Straley.
"The Fisherman and His
Wife" will be performed out-
doors for families on Monday
evenings starting May 23.
The second sampling was
from A.R. Gurney's "Sylvia."
"Sylvia" is a "modern roman-
tic comedy about a marriage
and a dog." A married
couple's life is radically
changed when a stray dog
takes up residence in their
empty nest. The dog is played
by an actress, who speaks
and interacts with the hu-

In the United States, 54
percent of all Americansnow
live in 772 coastal counties
adjacent to the Atlantic and
Pacific Oceans, the Great
Lakes and the Gulf of Mexico,
according to the Population
Reference Bureau. By the
year 2025, nearly 75 percent
of all Americans are expected
to live in coastal counties.
Projections for Florida es-
timate more than 16 million
residents by 2010. At this
rate, will there be enough
d ncb nte-st'ed ~'-acl-Tt-g-o
around? Teas, vhich is ex-
periencing similar popula-
tion increases, has upheld
the public's right to access
and use the beaches, as have
Oregon and Hawaii.
New Jersey might be the
next state to clarify the
public's right to access and
use privately owned dry
sandy beaches. The New Jer-
sey Supreme Court recently
agreed to hear a case involv-
ing a dispute between beach
owners and beach users.
That case was first heard in
trial court and then ap-
pealed.
The appellate court autho-
rized public access from the
road across privately -owned
beach club property, as well
as permission for intermit-
tent use of the dry sandy
beach in connection with the
use of the foreshore (wet
sand) and the ocean. That
ruling will now be examined
by the New Jersey Supreme
Court. The case provides the
court with an opportunity to
clarify the so-called public
trust doctrine.
The public trust doctrine
concerns land the state holds
title to "in trust" for the pub-
lic. In Florida, the mean high
water line is the boundary
between the public and the
private land. This fictional
line, an average of all high
tides over an 18 year cycle,
has created trouble between
private landowners and the


public here in south Walton.
The doctrine of "customary
use" has also been used to
open up beaches to the pub-
lic. An Oregon court found
that "From the time of the
earliest settlement to the
present day, the general pub-
lic has assumed that.the dry
sand area was a part of the
public beach."
In Oregon, beachfront
property owners had sought
to enclose the dry sand area
contained in their deeds. The
court's finding of customary
use prevented them froM]p-
ing so. ,.
Customary use hasm not
been established for all
beaches in Florida. Next
month, an administrative
law judge will begin hearing
a challenge to Walton
County's beach renourish-
ment plans.
The challenge is to the
state's authority to nourish
beaches, as well as a lengthy
list of other items including
the science, the engineering,
the survey and the effects on
the property rights of owners
whose beaches will be nour-
ished.
Depending on the outcome,
the case could have statewide
implications; Florida could,
as in New Jersey, find itself
in the headlines with a pre-
cedent-setting legal case.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JANUARY 6, 2005


TWO PIECES OF property in \Walton Couinty totaling 1570 acres recently became state
conservation easements due to the generosity of Nokuse Plantation founder M.C. Davis.


The' parcels, which will remain under the ownership of Davis, are part of Nokuse Planta-
tion, the largest privately funded conservation /restoration area east of the Mississippi River.


Davis makes donation for conservation


By DOTTY NIST
Thanks to Walton County
conservationist M.C. Davis,
1570-acres of undeveloped
land on the Choctawhatchee
and Blackwater rivers will be
preserved in its natural state
in perpetuity.
Last week Davis an-
fnounced the donation of a
conservation easeinent to the
state covering the two prop-
erties. Both are part of-
Nokuse Plantation, the now-
53.000-acre private conserva-
tion/restoration area that
Davis founded in central,
Walton County in 2002.
The plain-spoken Davis
briefly commented that he is
"pretty happy" following last
week's finalization of the
easement.
The conservationist said he
selected the two tracts, one
970 acres and the other 600
acres, partly because of their
h a thi r a l b e a utq . .
The larger tract is located
,on the Chbc't'aw htee River
Just north of State Road 20.

"These are the only undevel-.
oped bluffs left on the river,"
Davis remarked. The smaller
parcel is on the Blackwater
River west of Freeport and
south of the Eglin Reserve.
Florida Department of En-
vironmental Protection

Schweiss 'said it is unusual

nated conservation ease-

acres. However, he said he

another part of Nokuse Plan-,

servation easement property.
Schweiss said this is the
first conservation easement
created by the state in Wal-
ton County since the estab-
lishment of the Florida For-
ever funding program in
2001.
