PUBLISHED CONTINUOUSLY SINCE 1888


MORE TENTS LIKE THIS ONE were ruled out as a solution for overcrowding at the
Walton Couhty jail. This temporary structure, currently housing female inmates, is located
in space that should be used for recreation and exercise for the prisoners. County commis-
sioners chose instead to purchase the old WalMart building.


Jail construction has been


suspended for two weeks


By TIANA LARSEN
The Board of County Com-
missioners suspended all
construction activities on the
Walton County jail for two
weeks. The. motion' by Com-,
missioner Ro Cuchens, one of
several that followed a pre-
sentation on Jan. 11 by Sher-
iff Capt. Danny Glidewell
about urgent problems at the
jail, was passed 4-1, with
Commissioner Larry Jones
voting nay.
A motion for the county to
proceed with purchasing the
old WalMart building also
passed 4-1, with Jones again
voting nay.
Exact details of how the
WalMart building will be
used to alleviate the current
problems ofjail overcrowding



ALL CONSTRUCTION
ACTIVITIES on the Walton
County jail have been sus-
pended for two weeks, while
the Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) works out the
details of finding space for,
overcrowded inmates and
sheriff employees. "The ongo-
ing construction is an, impedi-
ment to the operation of the
sheriff office," said Capt.
Danny Glidewell at the Jan.
11 BCC meeting.


and other issues plaguing the
jail will be worked on during
the two-week suspension.
The next regular BCC
meeting is Jan. 25, at the
Walton County' Courthouse
in DeFuniak Springs. At 1
p.m. on that date commis-
sioners will discuss how best
to utilize the WalMart build-
ing to move prisoners out of
the overcrowded and crum-
bling facility behind the
courthouse.
The jail, built to hold 101
inmates, currently has over
200. Up to 30 inmates are
occupying cells designed for
16 on a daily basis, Glidewell
said. In addition, there are
not enough toilets or show-
ers, inmates are sleeping on
the floor, the sewer system is


overloaded and there is no
recreation space. These is-
sues are a large liability to,
the county, as well as viola-
tions of Federal law, he
pointed out.
Adjacent construction is
also. causing problems. "The
ongoing construction is an
impediment to the operation
of the sheriff office."
Glidewell stated.
The pile driving and heavy
construction work on the
courthouse addition has ap-
parently caused settling and
cracks in the jail walls.,
Glidewell told the BCC that
staff is having to file off the
tops of doors in order to keep.
them working.

council


looks at


growth

By LIZ SINCLAIR
Several matters pertaining
to growth in DeFuniak
Springs came before' the city
council at its Jan. 10 meeting.
The council heard the final
reading of an ordinance
amendment which changes
land use along the west side
of Hwy 331 S., south of Bruce
Ave. The change in land use,
some of which had been
zoned single family residen-
tial, will allow R.G.
Lathinghouse Partnership to
develop a new and used car/
truck dealership.
According toCity Manager
Mike Standley's report to the
council and confirmed by
Larry Laird, city building
and planning director, new
commercial construction
projects are being considered
on Hwy. 331S. in the vicin-
ity of the Wal-Mart
Supercenter. One is a strip
mall south of Wal-Mart and
the other is a Walgreen,
across the street.
There is currently about
$1.5 million dollars in new
homes and residential addi-
tions being done in the city,
according to the building and
planning department. Build-
ing is reflected in all areas of
the city and several of these
projects are in the northwest
area of town, including three
new homes being built in
Timber Wind Estates, a
$130,000 addition to a home
on Lakeview Drive and a new
home on Magnolia Lake
Drive. Listed under commer-
cial project, the second phase
of Magnolia Lakes subdivi-
sion has also begun.
A residential permit has
been approved for a $175,000
new home on Circle Drive as
well.
At the Feb 14 council meet-
ing, there will be a public
hearing and consideration of
a request to operate a per-
sonal fitness business at 836
Hwy 90, site of the old "Jolly
Spot." The request requires
a valance, as it is considered
R-1 residential property. The
planning department voted
om Jan. 3 to recommend the
council deny the request.

Beach nourishment constitutional


challenge delayed two months


By DOTTY NIST
Due to a change of judges,
a hearing on some area resi-
dents' constitutional chal-
lenge to beach renoutrish-
ment has been delayed for
two months.

Two local nonprofit organi-
zations, "Stop the Beach
Renourishment, Inc.",of Wal-
ton County and "Save Our
Beaches, Inc." of Destin have
a case pending in Leon
County Circuit Court chal-
lenging the constitutionality
of certain sections of Florida
Statutes pertaining to large-
scale beach renourishment.
The suit was filed in re-
spon.se to Walton County and
Destin's plans for a joint 4.8-
mile-long dredge-and-fill
beach renourishment project
on the west end of the Wal-
ton County coastline and ad-
joining beaches on the east of
end of Destin. Legal action by


the organizations have
blocked renourishment work.
planned for fall 2004.
Judge Janet Ferris of the
Second Judicial Circuit had
been assigned the case, and
a hearing on a motion for
summary judgment by the
two organizations had been
scheduled for Jan. 4 in Tal-
lahassee.
However, the hearing was
cancelled when Ferris re-
cused herself from the case.
It was reassigned to Judge
Jonathan Sjostrom, also of
the Second Judicial Circuit.

Doug Smith, public infor-
mation officer for the circuit,
commented that recusals are
quite common and happen
for a variety of reasons. Many
times they are motivated by
a desire to avoid an impres-
sion of impropriety, he noted.
Smith said judges generally
do not reveal a reason for re-


causing themselves from a
case. Judge Ferris's office
had not responded to a call
from the Beach Breeze re-
garding the matter at press
time.
A new hearing on the mo-
tion for summary judgment
has been set for 2-4 p.m. on
March 3 in Leon County Cir-
cuit Court.
The defendants, which in-
clude Walton County, Destin,
the state Department of En-
vironmental Protection; and
the state Board of Trustees
of the Internal Improvement
Trust Fund, are expected to
file their own motion for sum-
mary judgment prior to the
scheduled hearing.
The purpose of a motion for
summary judgment is to seek
a judge's decision on the ba-
sis of statements and/or evi-
dence presented for the
record without a trial. Sum-
. mary judgments are granted


in lieu of a trial when a judge
determines there is no dis-
pute between parties as to
the facts of a case and that
one party is entitled to a
judgment as a matter of law.
Meanwhile, other action
filed by the two organiza-
tions, an administrative chal-
lenge directed specifically at
the state permit for the
planned local beach
renourishment project, is
scheduled for hearing in Feb-
ruary prior to the hearing on
the constitutional challenge.
A hearing on the adminis-
trative challenge is set to be-
gin on Feb. 21 in the South
Walton Tourist Development
Council conference room. The
period of Feb. 21 through
Feb. 25 has been set aside for
hearing of the legal chal-
lenge.

iFS police arrest

suspect in grand

theft of McDonald's


By BJUCE COLLIER
Following an investigation
that began on December 23
and extended into.Alabama,
DeFuniak Springs Police
have arrested and charged a
suspect in a continuing series
of thefts totaling over
$350,000 from a local busi-
ness.
On January 7, DFS police
arrested 37-year-old Dawn T.
White, of 1088 Weeks Lane
in Westville. According to the
police case report, White re-
portedly converted a total of
$351,280.27 to her personal
use over a period beginning
May 4, through October 4,
2004. Funds deposited were
allegedly taken by White
from the McDonald's restau-
rant on Highway 331 in De-
Funiak Springs, where she
was employed as a manager.
DeFuniak Springs Police
Chief Investigator Lonnie
Pippins began his investiga-
tion on December 23 when
contacted by the owners of
the McDonald's' restaurant.
Reconciliation of the Novem-
ber bank statement revealed
no record of $351,280.27 that
should have been deposited
into McDonald's business ac-
count between May 4 and
October 4, 2004.
Police were provided with
the names of all persons re-
sponsible for making
McDonald's deposits, includ-
ing that of Dawn T. White. A
number of McDonald's em-
ployees made taped and re-
corded statements, reporting
that White had been making
loans, paying their bills, and


giving them gifts. One stated
that White had been spend-
ing "a lot of money" for par-
ties and gifts. Further inves-
tigation revealed that on No-
vember 4, 2004, White ob-
tained a license for a busi-
ness in Geneva, Alabama.
The business name was
"K&D Hidden Treasures."
White also reportedly pur-
chased five motor vehicles as
well as real property in
Samson, Alabama during the
period from May through
December of 2004.
Police, investigators also
attempted to speak to an-
other manager at
McDonalds, identified in the
case report as Stephanie
Michelle Gore, of DeFuniak
Springs, who reportedly de-
clined'to speak with police.
Following issuance of a
warrant, Dawn T. White was
arrested January 7 and
booked for grand theft at
Walton County Jail. Bond
was set at $250,000. Police
are continuing their im-esti-
gation.


WHITE


By LIZ SINCLAIR
After a second public hear-
ing held Jan. 10, the DeFu-
niak Springs City Council
voted unanimously to deny
CHELCO a second ground
sign.
Citing hardship, attorney
Allan Ramey and Mike
Richards, CHELCO vice
president of corporate ser-
vices, brought a number of
witnesses to the quasi-judi-
cial meeting. The witnesses
were sworn in and a tran-
scriber recorded the testi-
mony which centered around
the difficulty CHELCO has
in directing clients and cus-
tomers to its Baldwin Ave.
office. Witnesses included
CHELCO employees,, the
Walton County Chamber of
Commerce office manager
and Ellen Mayfield, who said
she was asked twice in one
day for directions to
CHELCO as she was putting
up Christmas decorations on
Circle Drive.
DeFuniak Springs code al-
lows for two wall signs and a
ground sign for a business.
CHELCO requested a second
ground sign to be placed at


the corner of Hwy. 90 and
18th Street. The request re-
quires approval of a variance.
On Nov. 1, 2004, the request
went before the planning
Board where a vote to ap-
prove recommendation went
down 2-4.
'On Dec. 13, the request
came before the city council
and after lengthy discussion,
the council asked Ramey to
come back with dimensions
for the sign.
Council members ques-
tioned why CHELCO
couldn't move its Baldwin
Avenue ground sign to the
new location and identify its
buildings with wall signs.
The additional, sign was
within code standards, but
the council denied the re-
quest 3-0, with Mark Ander-
son absent. City Attorney
Clayton Adkinson had told
the council it was up to them
to decide if CHELCO had es-
tablished hardship. Don
Harrison said he saw the lack
of directional signage on
Hwy. 90 more as an inconve-
nience than a hardship. Roy
McLeod made the motion to
deny.

DeFuniak Springs


By LIZ SINCLAIR

fices will be closed Jan. 17 in

ing, Harold Carpenter was

ber. To take the mayoral po-
sition, Carpenter will have to
resign his council seat. By
setting his move to mayor

diverted a special election


. and a general election will be
held for both mayor and
council seat in April. There
are two other council seats,
currently held by Roy
McLeod and.MarkAnderson,
up for vote, as well as the city
'clerk position held by Dan

lition being put together by

tor Ronnie Bell. The purpose
of the coalition, according to
Bell's request for a represen-
tative, is "to discuss similar

School board holds first meeting of 2005


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County School
Board met for the first time
in 2005 on Monday, January
3 to discuss a multitude of
items.
Trip requests were ap-
proved for chosen local math
students from all four county
high schools to attend a
mathematics competition at
Lurleen B. Wallace Junior
College.
School Board members
voted down a request for back
pay from James Hylton, a
former Freeport Middle


School teacher.
The board unanimously
approved the construction by
Lord and Sons Construction
Company of classroom addi-
tions at Bay Early Education
Center. The building should
provide room for a pre-kin-
dergarten through fifth-
grade school that. could be
ready to open by the start of
the next school year. The
school should be able to
house 400 students and alle-
viate overcrowding at Butler
Elementary School, which is
scheduled to become a kin-
dergarten .through eight-


grade center this fall.
The school board voted 5-0
to accept a settlement in the
Bruce and Susan Paladini
lawsuit that requires nature
trails be constructed and
trees planted on the South
Walton High School site. The
board agreed to the settle-
ment after Susan Paladini
appeared before the board
and promised that she would
not ride horses on the nature
trail adjacent to the school.
during school day operating
hours. The settlement,
which had already been ap-
proved by the Walton County


Commission and the,
Paladinis, should bring an
end to a complicated legal
battle that began in the
1990s over a large parcel of
land that was given to the
county by the state at the in-
tersection of Highway 98 and
331.
The board's next 'regular
meeting is scheduled for
Monday, February 7, at 6 p.m.
at the Tivoli Complex in De-
Funiak Springs. The Jan
17th meeting happens to fall
on Martin Luther King Jr.
Day and has been canceled.


Retired educators set up


scholarship for Walton residents


PENNEY COOEY-BROOKS,


For many years, the Wal-
ton County Retired
Educator's Association
(WCREA) have awarded a
scholarship for Walton
County high school seniors
that were planning on major-
ing in education. In that en-
deavor, many young people
have had extra help needed
in subsidizing. their tuition
and/or books'and fees in col-
lege.
Several months ago, the
executive board of the
WCREA discussed ways of
increasing the scholarship


and of making the scholar-
ship available to any Walton
County citizen interested in
pursuing a career in educa-
tion. The executive board
then met with Carla Reinlie,
associate director for College
Advancement for Okalo6sa-
Walton College, to discuss
the groups' options.
The three possible sce-
narios for the endowed schol-
arship were then presented
to the general membership at
their. December meeting. The
membership had many ques-
tions regarding the disburse-


ment, amount,. matching
state funds etc. and voted for
the executiveboard to take'
it to the next level and to in-
vite Reinlie to the January
board meeting. They also
gave the executive board per-
mission to enter into a con-
tract with OWC if they were
satisfied with all of the schol-
arship protocols.
At the Jan. 7, meeting, the
WCREA Executive Board
met with Reinlie again and
after additional discussion
and research, entered into an
agreement with OWC and
made the first financial in-


Florida inmate phone scam contin


By BRUCE COLLIER
An inmate telephone scam
that originated in the Miami-
Dade County jail system last.
September continues -to
plague citizens in Okaloosa
aid .Walton County. Public
Information Officer Sgt. Rick
Hord of the Okaloosa County
Sheriff's Office has issued
another warning in response
to "an extraordinary number
of calls" made to the 850 area
code.
The scam works as follows.
Jail inmates with phone ac-
cess make random collect
calls. If a caller answers and
accepts, the inmate/caller
uses various schemes to trick
the recipient into dialing a
code, usually beginning with
*72 or *721. This forwards
the recipient's telephone
number to an accomplice of
the inmate caller, generally
in south Florida. Once this is
done, the inmate. caller can
make long distance or 900
calls on the unsuspecting
recipient's phone bill. Favor-
ite schemes include the in-

CHELCO puts cooperative principle into action with donation


Choctawhatchee Electric
Cooperative (CHELCO) has
donated a check for $1,650
from the National Coopera-
tive Services Corp. (NCSC) to
the United Way of Okaloosa
and Walton Counties.
NCSC recently instituted a
community outreach pro-
gram, exclusively for NCSC
members in Florida and Ala-
bama. The program began as
a way for NCSC to offer a
helping hand to cooperatives
whose members were af-


fected by -last year's hurri-
canes and tornadoes.
Each of NCSC's 18 mem-
bers in Florida and Alabama
received checks for $1,650 to
be donated to the local char-
ity of choice.
CHELCO CEO and Gen-
eral Manager Gene Smith do-
nated the check to United
Way Executive Director Bill
Robinson, who will use the
money to purchase cots for
local shelters.
Robinson said the need for
cots in local shelters is more


critical than ever before be-
cause so many people were
left homeless after Hurricane
Ivan. The cold winter
weather is also a factor that
increases the need for cots.
Local "cold night" shelters
provide beds for people who
don't have a warm place to
sleep when temperatures dip
below 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
"CHELCO has long been
an advocate of supporting
community needs in
Okaloosa and Walton coun-
ties," Smith said. "This check


gives us another way to ful-
fill the seventh cooperative
principle, concern for com-
munity."
NCSC allocated almost
$30,000 to this program and
funds have been distributed
to all 18 cooperatives. NCSC
is a privately -funded, mem-
ber-owned cooperative that
provides electric cooperatives
with specialized financing
services.
CHELCO is a member-
owned electric cooperative


that serves the power needs
of approximately 40,000 resi-
dences and businesses in
Walton and Okaloosa coun-
ties. The cooperative has its
headquarters in DeFuniak


Springs, and six area offices
serve members' needs in De-
Funiak Springs, Freeport,
Santa Rosa Beach, Seminole/
Bluewater Bay, Auburn and
Baker.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


PERSONAL COMMENTS



Editor's Comment


A state of flux


By RON KELLEY
A new year is here, and that always seems to bring new,
changes to our lives. Anew year brings new goals, new reso-
lutions, new influences and a new direction from where we
were headed before.
This seems to be underscored when coming on. the heels
of a big election year. Here, in Walton County, the voters
decided to move. in new directions from where they were
headed before, as have some individuals..
Two new commissioners were chosen to oversee the di-
rection of growth and development in the two places where
growth and development is. most rapidly occurring. Two
years earlier, voters made a similar choice and elected two
new, commissioners to start them on a different path, so
that in the space of just slightly over two years, we now
have four fresh faces at the board table, ,
I hope that. serves as a lesson to the newest commission-
ers to hold true to their promises to the public and reminds
the remaining commissioners that they must also stay true
to the platforms that put them into office. Both current and
new commissioners can learn much from each other by
listening to the people' who trusted them enough to cast
their votes in their favor.
This board is facing some of the most important issues in
Walton County history. Their decisions today will affect the
lives of citizens for decades to come. It's my hope that they
always consider the long-term effects of their decisions, to
look beyond the visible horizon and remember to provide
for the future of their children, grandchildren and for the
countless generations that will follow and either reap the
benefits or pay the price for today's decisions.
Walton County is in a state offlux. The landscape is chang-
ing so rapidly that a span of five years could make some
areas in Walton County almost unrecognizable from' how
they look today.
County government is changing) too. Some faces are gone
and new faces are arriving. That seems to be a familiar '.
trend, too. New officials take office and some employees are
hired and some are fired and voters can only hope that these
changes are in their best interest and not in the interests of
politics or hidden agendas.'
Not all changes result from elections. Over the last year,
we've said good-bye to some hard working professionals who
have moved on to brighter futures, such as Walton Health
Department Director Dr. Susan Turner, Code Enforcement
Supervisor Gary Hulion and Parks and Recreation Direc-
tor Montee Posey. We've also picked up some fine new em-
ployees in several departments throughout the county.

LETReOTH 'JEIT0'


".Editor,
j; There's a light shining. Most Friday evenings towards the
back of our library, you will see it glowing. Go inside and
you will see the glow extended onto the faces of the people
inside...people of diverse backgrounds and ages, interact-
ing with one another over a chess board. They are learning
much more than a game. Mr. Dan Owens, our librarian,
oversees it all., He's another whole story. He's one of those
rare, humble people who, in and of themselves, are radiant
lights. He has served.our country, our city, and our commu-
nity.
My son is nineteen now and in college. He stills enjoys
playing chess. But when he was in his early teens, trying to
find himself, needing friends and wholesome activities, he
found both through this chess club. It was a place to go on
Friday evenings,. where he could spend a little time with
people who liked him, even if he didn't smoke pot.
He learned that.people could care for one another, and
enjoy each, other's company, regardless of their differences.
There was always an air of friendship and laughter when I
would peep in to pick him up. ,
It was a real source of light at a difficult period in his life.
The friendships he made are enduring. I have to thank Dan
Owens for not only being willing to spend that time turning
on' that light for years, but for being alight as well. We should
all seek to shine so brightly. As the poet said, "Brighten the
corner where you are."

Not all changes happen within government, either.
Here at the DeFuniak Herald and Beach Breeze, we are
closer than ever before to moving to our new business of-
fices just down the street and moving our printing presses
into a second downtown building over on 8th Street. ,
' The Herald Breeze has also had some personnel changes.
Longtime reporter Betty Gershkoff moved on to a great new
job that still allows her to continue to live here in'Walton
County and drop in to visit her friends on Baldwin Avenue.
TV sportscaster Pat Casey joined our happy little band of
revelers and has expanded our sports coverage with new:
features and more articles.
Writer, actor, director and former attorney Bruce Collier
has also joined the Herald-Breeze family as a full-time re-
porter and has contributed numerous feature articles and
also handles our crime news.
The latest change is the loss of writer Liz Sinclair, who
has covered some major stories and. has always done an
outstanding job. She is moving a few doors down to join her
husband, Dave, in managing the family business, The Book'
Store, established by her mother over a decade ago. Natu-
rally, we will miss Liz and her considerable talents, but we
wish her and Dave all the best.
Although is seems we are all in a state of. flux, let us
remember that the one thing that never changes is the fact
that things always change.
It's up to us as individuals, as business leaders and pro-
fessionals, as employers and employees, as husbands, wives,
moms and dads; as officials and as voters, to make sure
that change, when it comes, is always positive and always
a step forward toward a brighter future and a better tomor-
row.



Editor,
Competitive sports are not about winning or losing, it's
about how you' play the game. Someone said that a long
time ago and I have, always agreed.
But politics are about winning and losing; it doesn't seem
to matter how you play the public. Some people don't even
bother to vote and too many others simply vote along politi-
cal party lines. Too bad.
Recently I have been told about some negative corn moments
in regards to my written opinions, But that's okay, they were
just general .and failed to be specific. That was expected,
but without the offset of a grass roots challenge by inter-
ested citizens I cannot continue this expensive and time con-
suming fight for better government. Maybe some people
think that freedom is free. So I may slow down a little, but
quitting is not part of my vocabulary, nor has ii .rler en.'
," If you disagree with anything in particular I write, then"
please write or phone me, I'm in the phone book. Of course ,!
if you agree with anything I write, I suggest you "keep it to
yourself."

Dear Editor,
I'd like to thank those who helped provide the commu-
nity with such a successful Christmas parade! Time and
time again, the talented leadership of Rick and Jim Bovee
and the Defuniak Springs Women's Club, serve not only the
community of Defuniak Springs but all of Walton County.
Imagine my delight when my float, the 'Jack-In -The-Box'-
was selected as the, grand prize winner in the individual
category! I wish to thank all who were responsible.
Congratulations to the Defuniak Springs Women's Club,
led by their President Diane Lawson, as the parade, grew at
least twice as large as last year! I was delighted to see more
thoughtfulness put into floats and exhibits by the partici-
pants this year and encourage the continued refinement.,of
the exhibits rules and guidelines to provide for a more in-
teresting, eye appealing parade for the community. It will
be fun to watch the amount of exhibits increase as new, com-
petitive, interest grow through out the-community.
Additionally, I'd like to,thank those individuals who par-
ticipated as parade watchers and to encourage the creative.
individuals of Walton County, as well as those in the busi-
ness community, to actively support the Women's Clubs ef-.
forts to provide a friendly, competition of the best floats and
parade exhibits northern Florida can produce!
Defuniak Springs historic back ground and the magic of
the Christmas lights around.the beautiful setting of the lake
circle call for a state of the art Christmas parade to go along
with the celebration. Certainly the Women's Club Christ-
mas Parade will become an annual event to remember.
Again, thanks to all who helped in the Defuniak Springs
Christmas celebrations. It makes the season special for all
of Walton County. Hope to see you all at next years Christ-
mas parade! Dari Bradley

Editor: .
President Bush is endangering the retirement of millions
of Americans by taking the first step in his plan to dismantle
Social Security.
Recently, White House sources revealed their plan to cut
promised benefits to retirees by nearly a- third. And these
cuts are guaranteed -- whether you opt in to the Bush plan
or not.
For those entering the workforce today, that means more
than a 25 percent cut in the retirement benefits they're
counting on; for their children, it guarantees a 46 percent
cut.
We can't stand by and let George W. Bush and the Repub-
licans cut our promised guaranteed retirement benefits --
especially when so many of us are counting on Social Secu-
rity to help us lead a happy, healthy life when we retire.
Many of us in this area depend on Social Security and our
VA or military retirement to live a happy, healthy life. A 25
. percent cut in our Social Security would surely put a "crimp"
in my lifestyle.
Please contact your representive and let them know we,
meaning either Rupublican or Democrat, do not want Presi-
dent Bush messing with our Social Security.

Editor, ,
Year 2004 is gone into history, and 2005 is now begun. I
sure hope that 2005 will bring with it a better attitude and
a kinder spirit than last year. As I read the year's last copy
of the Herald, dated December 30, and scanned the letters
to the editor, I was saddened that we ended the year with
negativism an4 fault-finding.
What I would like to. do is start this new year telling the
good people of Walton County about what a few great folks
did last year to bring a little joy, happiness, and spiritual
guidance to many who needed it; (Myself being one). -
I'll start with the most important person in my life, my
wife Darlene, who has given so much of herself to so many,
never expecting or wanting anything in return but God's'
love. My wife is so special in many ways, most importantly
her personal relationship with Jesus. Then there is my pas-
tor, Randy Nelson and his wife, Charra, of Westside Baptist
Church in DeFuniak. Randy is an exceptional pastor. He '
has more love and kindness in him than I have every seen
in any other pastor. This is also the case with his wife,
Charra. No pastor could ever want a.more loving and sup-
portive wife than she is* Charra is always in there doing
more than her share to keep her church running the way it
should. And there are others at Westside that also give ev-
erything they have to bring a little joy to us all.
-Sam and Barbara Jones, whose singing could and should
be in the top 10 gospel music charts. When Barbara opens
in song she bares her very soul, and not a dry eye can be
found in the pews. Milton and Sara Nell Pearson, who, as a
team, teach Sunday school in such a way that, anyone can
understand and receive the Lord's word. Sara Nell is called
,the "prayer warrior" because when she .prays, she does so
with such passion, so much love and affection, such energy,
it seems sometimes that Jesus has no choice but answer
her. Claire Green, the music director, we call her the music
monster, because she is so dedicated, to providing us with
the best music possible to brighten our day. Jerry Sherman,
my best friend, who heads up the men's brotherhood, per-
forms as church usher, and is on most of the church's com-
mittees. He gives all he has, to all who want. Jerry's wife,
Marie, who not only supports him in his ministry, she keeps
the.nursery every Sunday morning so others can attend
Sunday school. Betty Brown, who keeps the' books and fi-
nancial records for the church, has perhaps the toughest
job of all. She has to catch the flack every time something
goes wrong, but she does so with a smile and her chin held
high. .'..
All of these people are good, people, they're great people,
and they are people dedicated, to making their church a
refuge for the spiritually lost, a 'sanctuary for those who
seek, and a home for Christians. Their attitude is always.
positive and their goal is to provide a haven in Christ.
I owe so much for what these folks have given me this
past year. They have shown me that life can be just as fun;
even more so, by staying focused on what is right and just.
Keeping a good attitude, loving each other, and always re-
membering what is most important of all, being righteous,
if we stay righteous, everything else falls in place.

Editor,
To all who attended the Christmas Eve Service at t h tir-
United Methodist Church, thank you so very much for your
contributions to our White Christmas Fund which goes to
help support the United Methodist Children's Home. We
, collected almost $2,500. This enabled us to meet our goal
this year, of $8,500. We greatly appreciate your generosity.

Editor,
Spring is not far away and already the 'Private Beach'
signs are blooming.
Welcome to Destin, dear kind tourist! Please enjoy the
beauty of our beaches while conferring with the local con-
stabulary about the legality of being able to sit on the beach
you're paying for.
The locals are happy to have you here! They put up those
'private beach' signs to show how anxious they are to meet
you. They will even put on a bit- of theatre for you. Enjoy
their acting.while you pose for pictures with their 'private
beach' signs. Just look at those facial expressions and how
they wave their arms. Take pictures of these fine actors.
My, what a response that gets; red faces picking up cell
phones, calling the same sheriff to get. you escorted away.
Come lay -on'the beach by the water's edge, they'll come
down to chat. Youcan discuss Constitutional law in Florida
as well as the Florida Statutes; customary, uninterrupted
use by the people, private property rights, all things you
wanted to hear about while putting up your umbrella,
spreading your beach towels, watching the kids and apply-
ing sunscreen to the one you love! .
Now lay down and catch some rays. The friendly locals
will remain nearby, just to make sure you remain on the
'right' sand. This is because some owners feel their beach
ends where there dune walkover hits the beach whilst still
others believe their beachfront property is currently under
the Gulf.
Folks, something's gotta change! 'Destin Beach Free State,'
'Retake the Beach'; a little anarchy is called for.
County commissioners sign off on fencing and padlocking
beach accesses on Gulf Shore Drive? Fine. Keep those folks
out of Destin. Developers try to renege on their sweet deals
for access? Owners don't 'want' renourishment on 'their'
beach? Easy fix. Take back the beach.
Behind Silver Shells, this would mean making the public
access far more 'obviously' public and providing some park-
ing on a rebuilt (remember when oyster shell was good
enough?) 'old 98' between the towers and the beach. At Des-
tiny by the Sea, where renters are accosted by owners, it
would mean resetting 98 back along the beach and getting
rid of the curve in the road.
(Bring troops from Iraq and use them to retake 'Destin's


beaches!)
Private Beach? Whatever. I'm here for the same reason
as the old pelicans sitting on old Crystal Beach Pier pilings
jutting from the gulf to see, hear and feel the thunder of
the waves crashing in with the tide. Nothing should be able
to disturb this most basic human right.
This beach belongs to us all. Never forget it and never let
them try to tell you different. Timothy Mahar (defender)

Where to get permission to renovate


By LIZ SINCLAIR
DeFuniak Springs' code is
quite clear as to when build-

reads: "Any owner, autho-
rized agent or contractor who
desires to construct, enlarge

or change the occupancy of a
building or structure, or to

the installation of which is
regulated by the standard
codes adopted in this chapter,
or cause any such work to be
done, shall first make appli-
cation to the building and

In a request for a list of.

Both DeFuniak Springs

a contractor except in a very
limited scope, spelled out in
a disclosure statement the
homeowner must sign. They
are required by both the city
and the county. Property
owners can act as their own
contractor and supervise a
project themselves, building
a single-family residence, a
duplex, or an outbuilding, if
it is not being built for sale
or lease within a year of
completion." Commercial
buildings valued at $25,000
or less, with the same year
restriction can be permitted
in this manner.
By signing the form, with


a permit and having it nota-
rized, the property owner
agrees that the construction
must meet all code and zon-
ing requirement. Any unli-
censed person being super-
vised must be provided
worker's compensation and
have FICA and tax withheld.
Florida Department of
Business and Professional
Regulation (DBPR) offers
further information on how
property owners should pro-
tect themselves.
If the improvements are
more than $2,500, get a re-
lease of lien statement. This
helps protect the person hir-
ing a contractor from being
liable if the contractor does
not pay subcontractors or
building material suppliers,
the cost of which may be
taken from the owner's prop-
erty. If the contract calls for
partial payments, get a par-
tial release of lien statement.
A request can be made by the
property owner to the con-
tractor to stipulate to the lien
release. If it is not part of the
contract, the property owner
is the party required to pro-
ceed.


Again, if the cost of a
project is above $2,500,
DBPR says to get a Notice of
Commencement, which is re-
corded with the clerk of the
court in the county where the
property is located. The no-
tice declares that there is in-
tent for improvements to be
made. Building departments
are prohibited from perform-
ing inspections if a notice of
commencement isn't filed
with the permit. According to
DBPR, not filing or wrong in-
formation on the notice can
contribute to a property
owner paying twice for the
same work and materials.
DBPR also handles com-
plaints against contractors.
The DBPR customer contact
center phone number is (850)
487-1395. On-line, contact
them at

Girl Scout cookie sale under way


Local Girl Scouts begin
taking orders for America's
favorite cookies on January
21. The annual Cookie Sale
continues through March 20,
in Escambia, Santa Rosa,
Okaloosa and Walton coun-
ties. "Be on the lookout for
Girl Scouts outside your
church, school or grocery
store working to meet the
demand for the more than
200 million boxes sold each
year," said Lisa Higgins, Di-
rector of Public Services, Girl
Scouts of NW Florida. Cookie
delivery and booth sales be-
gin the week of February 28.
Since 1917, Girl Scouts
have been selling cookies as


a way to earn money to fund
community service projects
and activities. A lot has
changed since the days of
homebaked shortbread cook-
ies and today's varieties in-
clude something for every-
one, including those with
special dietary requirements.
This year's varieties in-
clude Thin Mints, Carmel
deLites, Shortbread, Peanut
Butter Patties, Peanut But-
ter Sandwich, Lemon Pastry
Cremes, Animal Treasures
and Pinatas. The Pinata is
made without milk, eggs or
peanuts; Peanut Butter Pat-
ties and Carmel deLites are


trans fat free; and Lemon
Pastry Cremes are reduced
fat. All Girl Scout cookies are
made without artificial pre-
servatives and are kosher.
"Many of our longtime sup-
porters have understandable
redirected their support to
hurricane relief this year, so
we're really hoping for a
strong sale to ensure the
quality programming that
the community expects from
us," said Cindy Nelson, Ex-
ecutive Director. Each box of
cookies sells for $3.00 and
proceeds from the Cookie
Sale remain in the local com-
munity to support Girl Scout
programs.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JANUARY 13, 2005


February
deadline
for USDA
crop coverage

Florida Agriculture Com-
missioner Charles H.
Bronson recently reminded
farmers and other eligible
stakeholders of the approach-
ing deadline for purchasing
crop coverage under the Non-
insured Crop Disaster Assis-
tance Program (NAP).
The NAP, which is admin-
istered by the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture's Farm
Service Agency, provides fi-
nancial assistance to produc-
ers of non-insurable crops
when low yields, loss of inven-
tory, or prevented planting
occurs due to natural disas-
ters.
To be eligible for NAP as-
sistance, crops must be non-
insurable crops and agricul-
tural commodities for which
the catastrophic risk protec-
tion level of crop insurance is
not available. Interested par-
ties should contact a crop in-
surance agent regarding
whether a crop is insurable in
a specific county. Contact the
local Farm Service Agency
office for information on'
whether a crop is eligible for
NAP coverage.
An eligible natural disaster
must occur before or during
harvest and must directly af-
fect the eligible crop. The cov-
erage period for NAP may
:vary depending on whether
the producer grows annual,
:perennial, or value loss crops.
To remain eligible for NAP
assistance, specific crop acre-
:age information must be re-
'ported annually. When a crop
:or planting is affected by a
:natural disaster, the local
:Farm Service Agency office
:must be notified within 15
calendar days.
For more information about
NAP, visit the web site http:/
/disaster.fsa.usda.gov/
nap.htm or visit the offices of
the Walton County Extension
Service on Hwy 83 N.

The Edison Electric Insti-
tute honored Gulf Power
with two awards-the Emer-
gency Response Award and
the Emergency Assistance
Award-for outstanding ef-
forts to restore electric power
in the wake of Hurricane
Ivan and other storms, which
hit the state in 2004.
It is rare for an electric
company to receive both
awards in the same year.
"The awards reflect Gulf
Power's commitment to re-
storing electricity to our cus-
tomers, as well as helping out
other companies," said Susan
Story, Gulf Power president
and CEO. "Hurricane Ivan
and the other storms that hit
our state were devastating
and we're proud that our
employees had a part in re-
storing hope to our commu-
nities."


Gulf Power was honored
with the Emergency Assis-
tance Award for helping
other Florida utilities restore
power from hurricanes Char-
ley and Frances. Then when
Hurricane Ivan hit north-
west Florida on September
16, it knocked out power to
90 percent of Gulf Power's
customers. Power was re-
stored to a majority of its cus-
tomers in less than two
weeks despite severe damage
to Gulf Power's biggest gen-
erating plant, Plant Crist in
Escambia County, which.
shut down the plant for the
first time in 25 years. Add-
ing to the monumental task
of getting power back on
across northwest Florida was
that much of the material
needed was in short supply
because of previous hurri-
canes in south and central


Florida, and transportation
into the area was hampered
by destroyed roads and high-
ways. Taking care of more
than 4,000 utility workers
from Southern Company and
outside utilities made hous-
ing, food and fuel a challenge.
Gulf Power's efforts in the
aftermath of Ivan earned the
Emergency Response Award.
Alabama Power also re-
ceived both awards. The
other three'major utilities in
Florida were also awarded
the Emergency Response
Award for their efforts after
three hurricanes that hit
within six weeks.
Gulf Power won the Emer-
-gency Assistance Award in
2003 for its help in restoring
power in the Maryland area
following Hurricane Isabel.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JANUARY 13, 2005


By Dara Dobson, Walton Co. Master
Gardener

.f In 1872, J. Sterling Morton proposed
that a special day be set aside for plant-
ing trees. This holiday became known
as Arbor Day. In years past, it was ob-
served on the last Friday in April. To-
r day each state selects their own day
-r based on the best tree planting date for
I that region. Florida has designated the
-" third Friday, January 21, as Arbor
I Day.
America's national tree is the oak
(Fagaceae family). There are approxi-
mately 500 species that grow in the
northern hemisphere. Florida's oaks
are often thought of as being more char-
acteristic of the northern part of state.
Of the 24 oak species native to Florida,
. the live oak (Quercus virginiana) is the
i only oak found statewide.
Florida has more native trees species
' than any other state. Of the 625 trees
native to North America, at least 275
are found in Florida. Florida's state tree
is the cabbage palm (Sabal palmetto).
Sadly, our state has lost millions of
trees this year due to the hurricanes.
It is of vital importance that we re-
place these trees. Don't put it off. Ev-
ery year we wait is loss of one more
years growth. We desperately need to
replace the trees we have lost.
9 Arbor Day is a great time to remem-
. ber how important our trees are to our
ecosystem. A tree can manufacture five
3 pounds of pure oxygen a day. Trees also
consume carbon dioxide. This helps to
fight the greenhouse effect that threat-
ens our survival. Carefully placed trees
can provide cooling summer shade and
maximize energy gains from winter
sunlight, cutting annual home energy
use by as much as 15 percent to 35 per-
cent. Deciduous trees shade and cool
homes in the summer, then when their
leaves fall in the winter they allow
warming sunlight to shine through. For
best results plant trees to the east and
west of your house. Planting trees to
shade your air conditioning compres-
sor units can increase cooling efficiency
as much as 10 percent. A mature tree
can provide the cooling equivalent of
ten room-sized air conditioning units.

IT IS THAT TIME OF THE YEAR AGAIN FOR THE

ANNUAL MASTER GARDENER PLANT SALE
The W\alton County Master Gardeners have worked hard again this year to
offer the public a variety) of trees, shrubs, and ornamental grasses at great prices. The
sale this tear will feature over 70 different varleities of plants. There will be citrus
trees, fruit trees, flowering trees, flowering shrubs, shade trees, shrubs for hedges, and
many other native favorites such as the beautiful native azaleas. There will be detailed
information provided on every plant. Master Gardeners and Extension Agents will be
present at the sale to answer any questions.
Most plants will be in one gallon and three gallon containers for less than $10.
Some shrubs %will sell for as little as $2 per plant. Local nurseries have given the Walton
County Master Gardeners great support for this event. This once-a-year fundraiser
allows the gardeners to continue to give back to the community through educational
programs. community landscape projects, and to give scholarships to )outh to con-
tinue their education.

KidCare available to

uninsured Florida children


Florida families with unin-
sured children can now apply
for affordable quality health
coverage through Healthy
Kids. A 30-day open-enroll-
ment period for the state-
subsidized health insurance
program began on January 1,
2005 and will continue
through January 30, 2005.
Children enrolled in the pro-
gram receive regular doctor's
visits, immunizations and
dental appointments at a
monthly premium their


working parents can afford.
Under new guidelines just
approved by the Florida Leg-
islature, families need only
supply one document verify-
ing their income. Uninsured
children 18 years of age and
under who do not qualify for
Medicaid are eligible for the
program.
"We are working hard to
get the word out to families
with uninsured children that
coverage is available through
Healthy Kids," said Florida


Chief Financial Officer Tom
Gallagher during a press
briefing in Tallahassee Mon-
day. "We've made it easier for
kids to get insured and we
have more than 70,000 spots
available to fill the program."
Open enrollment applica-
tions can be downloaded off
the internet beginning at
http://www.healthykids.org/

-- Serving God with gladness Thank You


By Dr. Robert M Jaye

A hymn which has been sung in many of our churches for
a long time is, "Serve the Lord with gladness." The phrase
comes from Psalm 100:2. Delight in divine service is a to-
ken of acceptance. Those who serve the Lord with sadness,
because it is unpleasant to them, are not serving Him at all.
They bring a form of devotion, but the life is absent. He is
the Lord of the empire of love. He wants His servants clothed
in joy, not sadness. The angels of God serve Him with joy,
not with groans. A murmur or sigh would be mutiny in their
ranks.
That obedience which is not voluntary is disobedience. The
Lord looks at the heart, and if He sees that we serve Him
from force and not because we love Him, He will reject our
offering. Service coupled with cheerfulness is heart service,
and therefore true.
Take away joyful willingness from the Christian and you
remove the test of his sincerity. If a person is driven to battle,
that one is not a patriot; but the one marching into the fray
with a flashing eye proves himself to be sincere in his pa-
triotism.
Cheerfulness is the support of our Christian strength. In
the joy of the Lord, we are strong. It acts as the remover of
difficulties. Without oil on the axels of industry, they would
grind to a halt. If there is not a holy cheerfulness to oil our
wheels, our spirits will be clogged with weariness. A person
that is cheerful in his service to God proves that obedience
is his element.
Do you serve the Lord with gladness? Let us show the
people of the world, who think of Christianity is slavery,
that it is to us a delight and joy! Let our gladness proclaim
that we serve a good Master.


We, the family of Annie
Ethel Murphy, thank you for
the prayers, cards,
calls,visits, flowers, food and
every other expression of love
during the extended illness
and passing of our loved one.
Special thanks to Dr.
Reodica, Julia, Jackie and
staff at Healthmark Regional
and also, Hospice for their
untiring love and care.
The Murphy family


Thank You
We would like to express
our appreciation to the Ar-
gyle Fire Department for as-
sistance provided during a
time of need for a member of
our family.
They responded quickly
with professional courtesy
and concern.
We are indebted to the
members of the Argyle Fire
Department and feel the
community is fortunate to
have this valuable service
provided when unexpected
needs arise.
Thanks to the Argyle Fire
Department.
The Sam Sims Family


Thank You
Although my family and I
find it very difficult to find
the appropriate words to ex-
press our gratitude and ap-
preciation for all the uncon-
ditional love and support you
have given us during this
very difficult time. We would
like to thank you for all your
prayers, flowers, cards and
any other acts of kindness
you have shown us during
the bereavement of the de-
mise of our loved one.
I would also like to person-
ally thank each and every
one of you for all the wonder-
ful stories and memories of
my father that you so gra-
ciously shared with me, as
well as the manner in which
you spoke of him and all the
kind words you used. These
will remain blessed memo-
ries in my heart for many
years to come.
My prayer is that God's
blessings are forever show-
ered upon you.
The family of
Hubbard Campbell

SPIRIT AND THE BRIDE WORSHIP CENTER Are you one of so many
people that are tired of going to church and leaving the same way you
came in (hungry and hurting)? Do you feel like you are so far away from
God, in a time that you need Him the most? That maybe if you could just
get to Him, so many things in your life would change? Have you been hurt
by so called Christians, and now you won't even go into the house of God?
Do you have so many questions and no answers? There is a church you can
come to and not be judged by whatyou're wearing orwhat mistakes you've
made. Jesus says to come as you are, not come when you're perfect. If any
of these things apply to you, we invite you to come and get the answers
you need, come and get to Jesus. After all, you are hungry, aren't you? Take

Pray For
The Backslider

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


'If someone you love is away from the Lord and hope
is sometimes hard to hang onfo, God has a promise for
you today in Psalm 126:6.: "Those who sow in tears will
reap with songs of joy. He who goes out weeping, carry-
ing seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying
sheaves with him."
All those months and years of praying' and weeping
and sowing the seed of God's Word in their life will not
return unharvested.
How God does it, when God does it, whether or not
you may even be here to see it is totally in God's hands.
But you can be sure the Shepherd is persistently, skill-
fully pursuing that lost person.
I can't begin to list the wanderers and rebels my heart
has ached for over the years. So many who had tasted
the goodness of God but who wandered away some of
whom are still wandering.
Some of whom have gloriously come home to Jesus,
now living for Him with, the fervor of one who loves much
because they've been forgiven much. Through all these
battles for people away from Jesus, I've learned a couple
of simple' principles that are grounded in Scripture.
They've been anchors when it looked like there was no
hope.
First, remember the difference between a chapter and
a book. These dark times in the life of that one you love
are not the whole book they're a chapter, or even a se-
ries of chapters. But many a book with sad chapters has
had a happy ending.
Don't judge the ending by the dark chapters in the
middle of the book. Don't decide the game is lost because
your team is losing at half-time. If you think it's over,
.you may actually contribute to their continued wander-
ing by resorting to nagging that will only drive them far-
ther away, by compromise and accepting what can never
been acceptable before God.
By slowly giving up on your prayer of faith for them,
or by just withdrawing from them when your uncondi-
tional love may be their best hope.
Remember, as long as there's breath, there's hope. It
just isn't over. so long as they have breath to cry out to
God for rescue.
Keep on fighting for them in the Throne Room of Al-
mighty God with defiant faith faith that defies the devil's
lie that "it's over what's the use?"
*Keep on loving them. Keep on gently sowing seed, as
the Holy Spirit opens up opportunity. Keep on asking
God to make their sin unsatisfying, and cry out to the
Lord,
"Do whatever it takes, Lord, within Your will, to bring
them to You!" Jesus is still accepting loved ones that we
had spiritually given up for dead.

fJ^ In Memory of

S 1 Jason Edward Blane

4 March 24,1976 -

January 14, 1995


He left us quickly, and the weary weight of sorrow
was like a heavy stone pressing on our bursting hearts.
Our tears have finally dried but we have not forgotten
Jason. We still miss him and thinking of him daily.
We miss his voice, his well loved smile, his tenderness
toward family and friends. To his brothers, Willie and
Clyde, he was more than a brother. He was their most
enthusiastic supporter, their confident, their com-
forter and their friend. To his Mom, who was a single
parent to her three boys, Jason was a rock. In addi-
tion to going to school, he worked to help support the
family.
Although Jason was born with a handicap, he never
allowed it to hinder him from experiencing all the
things any normal boy loves. He participated in bas-
ketball and baseball, playing with skill and a fiercely
competitive spirit In the Subway Shootout in 1995,
Ponce de Leon was playing #1 ranked Grand Ridge.
Grand Ridge's coach later commented that his #1 team
was beat by Ponce de Leon led by a boy with one hand.
It was amazing to watch Jason play sports and he was
always an encouragement to others who had handi-
caps. During the week preceding his accident, he met
a young boy who had a similar handicap and could not
tie his shoes. Jason taught him how to tie his shoes
and had promised to come back to teach him how to
cope with other things that were difficult.
Jason was a leader and was the president of his se-
nior class. His friends and team mates knew they could
depend on him to always give his all, whether it was
looking out for their best interest, a competitive game
or simply being there for them during difficult times.
There was no weak and faulty side of Jason, for he
was kind, generous, strong and self sufficient.
We %will never forget Jason and his good friend, Bran-
don Taylor, whose lives ended much too quickly as a
result of an automobile accident on January 14, 1995.
Jason was very special and it was something we can-
not quite define. His life and living touched all who
knew him and made us better.
We love you and miss you,
Your family

By PATRICK CASEY
Sophomore Kyle Shull
missed a shot at the buzzer
as the Chipley Tigers escaped
from Ponce de Leon with a
49-48 win over the Pirates in
a District 2, Class 2A contest.
Shull, who was the only man
standing after a furious
scramble for the ball after a
previous missed shot by the
Pirates, had the basketball
rim out of the cylinder on a
10-foot attempt as time ex-
pired.
The Pirates staged a rally
after trailing 32-20 at the
half against the 10-2 Tigers.
Tyler Hammond helped the
Pirates comeback by hitting
10-of-15 free throws on the
night while Devin Locke
scored 16 points to give the
Pirates a chance at the home
upset. PDL was slowed by
the loss of guard Will Scott
to an ankle injury, but took
control of the boards as the
Pirates had a 41-29 edge in
the rebounding department.
PDL had taken a 48-47
lead with a little over a
minute to play only to have
Decoya White rebound his
own miss and score to give
the Tigers a 49-48 lead. PDL
worked for the final shot only


s,. r


to have their last three at-
tempts fail to hit their mark
in the final seconds.

BCS considers changes for 2005


By CHUCK HINSON
They have heard the argu-
ments since the BCS formed
in the mid 1990s and pres-
sure from the fans and
coaches have not let up yet.
Despite a season that ended
on a positive note and had an
outright declared BCS cham-
pion, USC, people want the
BCS to be reevaluated and
reconstructed before the
2005 season.
Since there was no plans
for a play-off season this year,
they are considering a team
of football experts to decide
next December who will be
playing for the national title.
But, BCS coordinator and
Big East commissioner Kevin
Weiberg said he did not see a
NFL-style play-off any time


soon.
He said that he would be
interested in seeing a com-
mittee formed that would be
similar to the one used to set
the match-ups and play-off
systems used in NCAA bas-
ketball. He said they needed
to take a harder look at the
football structure and com-
pare it to the basketball play-
off structure.
In December, the Associ-
ated Press sent a cease-and-
desist letter asking the BCS
to not use the AP poll in their
bowl and rankings. formula
for the next coming season.
With the coaches poll added
to the formula, the two polls
made up one-third of the
o overall BCS grade in 2004.
A compilation of six com-


puter rankings made up the
other third.
But during the off-season
the BCS has plans to address
three major issues that they
say will hopefully change the
perception and improve the
outcomes in the 2005 NCAA
football season.

1) Future automatic quali-
fications for conference. The
new standard will allow the
Division I-A conferences the
opportunity to earn an auto-
matic BCS bid.
2) A fifth game was added
this year to the top bowl
games to allow more teams
greater access to the national
championship game. The
four major bowls, Sugar,


Orange, Rose and Fiesta will
still be played a week before
the championship game. The
championship game will con-
tinue being one of the top four.:
bowls, but will rotate each-
year.

3) There will now be two
television networks that will
carry the major games. The
BCS signed a four-year deal
worth $320 million with FOX
last month for the broadcast
rights to the Fiesta, Orange
and Sugar bowls from 2007-
2010 and the national cham-
pionship game from 2007-
2009.

All recommendations will
be considered by the BCS in
the next coming months.

donment of that easement.
A proposed f our-unit multi-
family project, Rosa Dune, on
CR-30A about eight-tenths of
a mile west of CR-393, has re-
quested an abandonment of
a 33-foot right-of-way on the
government lot, but the
abandonment procedure is
incomplete at this time.
Attorney Mark Davis ap-
peared for the developer and
told the BCC that on the ad-
jacent government lot, a
similar easement was aban-
doned. Davis said he had a
title company's opinion that
approving a plat on top of an
easement constitutes an.
abandonment,. but planning
staff disagreed.
"It is staffs opinion that

not a clean process. It doesn't

WORKIS UNDERWAY on the rebuilding of the Miramar Beach access. This large public
parking lot at one of the only public beach accesses on the west end of Walton County suf-
fered major destruction when Hurricane Ivan hit the Gulf Coast. According to Brad Pickel,
beach management director for the South Walton Tourist Development County, reconstruc-
tion began about three weeks ago. Chandler Construction, the county's contractor for the
rebuilding work, has brought between 35,000 and 40,000 cubic yards of sand onto the
access property, Pickel said. The current restoration consists of replacement of the stormwater
system,. the parking lot, and reattachment of the restroom to the access. A Phase 2 project,
not yet bid out, will involve reconstruction of boardwalks and the five dune walkovers.

personnel would be available
for emergencies and mutual
assistance would be possible..
"It's working like we hoped
it would," SWFD Chief Les
Hallman reported to his dis-
trict fire commissioners on
Jan. 10.
Hallman said the transfer
of responsibilities to the six-
member SWFD staff had
been "seamless." He added
that, aside from the minor
personality conflicts that
arise in almost any work-
place, that the new arrange-.
ment has been "very benefi-
cial to both sides."

When the fire commission-
ers voted to put SWFD dis-
patch team in place, they set
the goal of having two per-
sonnel on duty during peak
activity hours and one dis-
patcher for the remainder of
the 24 hours each day. This
has required a 96-hour work
week for the six-member
SWFD team, including 16
hours of overtime weekly.
Hallman announced that
the team members had ex-
pressed willingness to drop
their regular hours to 84 per
week plus 'four overtime
hours in order to add an ad-
ditional dispatcher.
Because of the decrease in
overtime pay with the plan,
the addition of another dis-
patcher, benefits included,
would cost the fire district
only another $5,000 to $6,000
per year, Hallman explained.
It would also allow Paine
more time to devote to his
supervisory duties, he added.
A motion to add the addi-
tional employee carried
unanimously. -
Also at the fire commis-


sioners' Jan. 10 meeting,
Eddie .Rivers, emergency
medical services chief for the
SWFD, provided the good,
news that $35,000 had re-
cently been donated by the
St. Joe Company for the pur-
chase of automatic external
defibrillators (AEDs.) These
devices, which cost approxi-
mately $1,400 apiece, are
used to quickly resuscitate
cardiac arrest victims.
Rivers added that, St. Joe
has also pledged to match
donations at the American
Heart Association's Heart
Ball, which could potentially
bring an additional $105,000
for defibrillator purchase.
Rivers said the goal for the
local area is to have one of the
devices in all government
buildings and each sheriffs
office patrol car, plus assist
the private sector in having
defibrillators available.
The board members enthu-
siastically approved the ad-
dition of Dr. Gary Pablo to
the SWFD staff as part-time
medical director. Pablo has
served a number of years in
the same capacity on a con-
tract basis. Pablo, who works
10-20 hours per month for
the fire district, is employed
full-time for the Sacred
Heart System, where he
heads up the system's emer-
gency rooms and air ambu-
lance service.
In other business, the
SWFD auditor pronounced
the district's financial status
as sound, and Glen
Kuehner's promotion to
training chief' was an-
nounced.

County considers roads, white

sand and major project reviews


By TIANA LARSEN
Two ordinances amending
the land development code
were adopted by the Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) at their Jan. 4 land
use issues meeting. Both or-
dinances had controversial
sections removed after a pre-
vious hearing before the
planning commission.
The first ordinance, in-


tended to provide for flexibil-
ity in road widths and stan-
dards for sidewalks, had also
contained language concern-
ing the white sands protec-
tion zone.
. This section of the code
deals with materials that
could potentially contami-
nate the white sandy
beaches. It addresses what
colors these materials can be


and where they can be
placed.

After a lengthy discussion,
the BCC accepted a sugges-
tion from Commissioner
Scott Brannon to remove the
white sand portion of the or-
dinance and draft a separate
new ordinance dealing with

By TIANA LARSEN
"Basic economic laws oper-
ate whether we want them to
or not," began Vince Rio, chief
legal counsel in Florida for
State Farm Insurance. Rio
spoke at the Walton County
Chamber of Commerce First
Friday luncheon on Jan. 7 on
the topic of insurance eco-
nomics and-hurricanes in
Florida.
After listing a number of
lessons learned after Hurri-
cane Andrew in 1992, "We
did not learn that it is pos-
sible for Florida to be hit by
four major hurricanes in one
season," Rio remarked.
According to Rio, when
Hurricane Andrew struck
Florida, State Farm had a
$3.6 billion surplus on hand,
which consisted' of all the
profit from the company's
operations across the entire
USA. When all wvas said and
done, State Farm paid oit
slightly more than that, end-

The BCC then passed the
remainder of the ordinance
concerning roadways and
sidewalks. Developers will
now have flexibility in de-
signing private streets, pro-
vided they meet certain code
requirements and have ap-
proval of the county engineer.
All new streets dedicated to
the county must still have a
minimum 50-foot right-of-
way. Existing streets, as of
July 1, 2004, with lesser
right-of-way may be paved if
the county engineer deter-
mines there is adequate area
for stormwater, utilities and
other engineering require-
ments.
The ordinance also ad-
dresses roadway construc-
tion standards and right-of-
way agreements. At a sugges-
tion from Commissioner
Cindy Meadows, language
was added allowing the
county to require removal of
any material placed in a
county right-of-way without
a signed right-of-way agree-
ment with the county. Re-
moval would be at the ex-
pense of the persons) plac-
ing the material in the right-
of-way.
The second ordinance
adopted by the BCC raises
the threshold for major
project review for non-resi-
dential projects from 3,500 to
5,000 square feet. Projects
which are less than 5,000
square feet will now be con-
sidered as minor, and will be
reviewed in-house by plan-
ning staff, rather than going
through the present public
hearing process.
The other part of the same
ordinance, which would have
also eliminated major project
review for certain residential
projects within the neighbor-
hood planning area/ infill
classification, was deleted
from the ordinance.
Because all projects in infill
areas, regardless of size, are
considered major projects,
tlhey will still allgo before the
planning coni mii-ion, and
neighbors will continue .to
receive notification. How-
ever, in an effort to stream-
line the process and save
time, after the planning com-
mission reviews infill
projects they will move for-
ward to the BCC land use
hearing in consent agenda
form.;
If any citizen wishes to, he
may attend the hearing and
request that the project be
removed from the consent
agenda and given a full hear-
ing.

Legislators to meet in SW


The Walton County Legis-
lative Delegation will be'
holding a public hearing in
Santa Rosa Beach, FL, on
Wednesday, January 19,
2005 from 10 a.m.-11 a.m.
The hearing will be held at
the South Walton Court-
house Annex building, lo-
cated at 31 Coastal Century
Blvd.
This hearing is being held
for the purpose of taking in-
put on any local bills to be
considered by the 2005 Leg-
islature. Local bills are bills
that relate to, or designed to
operate only in a specifically
indicated part of the state, or
one that purports to operate
within classified territory
when classification is not per-
missible or legal in a general
bill.


Legislators are required to
hold public hearings on local
bills before those bills can be
considered by the Legisla-
ture. Appropriations re-
quests and legislation of
statewide significance are
not local bills and are dealt
with differently under legis-
lative rules.
To request a spot on the
agenda for the hearings, in-
dividuals should contact
Brad Drake at Representa-
tive Don Brown's office in
DeFuniak Springs at (850)
892-8431 not later than 5
p.m., Tuesday, January 18.
The Walton County delega-
tion consists of Rep. Don
Brown, its chairman, along
with Representative David
Coley and Senators Charlie
Clary and Durell Peaden.

Parents protest


By PATRICK CASEY
A handful of south Walton
parents and volunteers
showed up at the January 3
meeting of the Walton
County School Board to voice
their displeasure at the non-
renewal of SWHS Athletic
Director Steve Castle's con-
tract.
Castle, who was notified on'
December 13 by South Wal-
ton Principal Marissa Benton
that his contract would not
be renewed, has not spoken
with Superintendent Carlene
Anderson before or since the
decision was made, as of
January 5.
The key questions that par-
ents were asking was why
the head football coach was
let go and why right before
Christmas? Athletic direc-
tors, who often double as the
head football coach at most


schools in the area, usually
have their contracts expire at
the end of December, unlike
teachers and principals,
whose contracts run until the
end of July. One of the rea-
sons for a December expira-
tion is that it gives schools
time to hire a new football
coach and/or director before
spring practice starts in May
in Florida.
Superintendent Anderson
declined to comment on the
reasons why Castle was let
go, only to say it was a diffi-
cult decision and that she
would not discuss the issue's
specifics with anyone other
than Steve Castle.
Anderson, who spent 90
minutes after the regular
meeting listening to the sup-
porters' claims, said person-
nel recommendations come
from each, of the principals

Grand Boulevard reduced variance request gets OK


v.DOTTY NIST
An amendment to the
Randd Boulevard signage
Ilan was approved at the
Jan. 6 Walton County Design
,eview Board (DRB) meet-
ing.

The DRB reviews proposed
signage for all projects pro-
posed for Walton County's
scenic corridor, U.S. 98 and
U.S. 331 south of the bay.
Plans for a mile-long ex-
Ipansion of the large
Sandestin-area development
|by the Howard Group are
under review by the county.
Because of the complexity


of a previous signage vari-
ance request by the appli-
cant, the DRB had elected to
put off consideration until
this month's meeting, to al-
low for more time for consid-
eration. There had also been
a request by the DRB to the
developer to consider how
much the variance request
could be reduced and still
"lived with."

The board is allowed more
leeway in considering signs
as part of a master signage
plan. Such as plan is already
in place for Grand Boulevard.

STHE SIGNS on the front and sides of the Pacific Resort
Wear store building were found to be too large to comply with
Walton County regulations for the s cenic corridor on which
the Miramar Beach-area business is located.


Pacific store must fix sign


By DOTTYNIST
The owner of the Pacific
Resort Wear store on U.S. 98
in Miramar Beach has been
directed to reduce the size of
the signs on his building to
comply with Walton County's
Scenic Corridor Standards.
The standards are part of
the Walton County Land De-
velopment Code. The scenic
corridor consists of U.S. 98
and U.S. 331 south ofthe bay.
For single-tenant projects
of less than 15,000 square
feet, the code states that
faqade-mounted building
signs are not to exceed. 54
square feet, with a maximum
6f three feet in height. Let-
ter height for upper case let-
tering may not exceed 24
inches.
Single-tenant projects of
more than 15,000 square feet
are allowed.a maximum of
100 square feet for fagade-
mounted building signs, five
feet in height, and a letter
height of 36 inches for upper
case lettering.
Per code, the Pacific store'
signs would not have ex-
ceeded size limits if the store,
had been larger than 15,000
square feet. However, accord-
ing to testimony at the Jan.
6 Walton County Designi Re-
view Board (DRB) meeting,
this was not the case.
Robert McGill, an attorney
representing store owner
Isaac Shamah, specified that
the Pacific Resort Wear store
is only approximately 10,000
square feet in size. The store
looks larger because of the
way it is situated on its tri-
angular lot, he explained.
At 30 inches tall, some of
the letters on the front and
sides of the store exceed the
allowable size by six inches.
The total height of their sign
also exceeds the three-foot
limit by 14 inches.
On behalf of Shamah,
McGill requested a variance
to allow the store's fagade-
mounted building signs to
stay in place at their current
ize.
He argued that Shamah
'iad paid $18,000 for the
:ignage and that it would be
an unnecessary hardship at
his point in time" for the
ownerr to take down the signs
nd put up smaller ones.
Holes were punched in the
buildingg facade to mount the
ign letters. McGill said. New
oles would have to be'made
or different-sized letters,
nd the old holes would have
o be patched, he explained.
successfull patching of those
uoles would be difficult or
impossible to accomplish, he
rgued.
Shamah. a Myrtle Beach
resident, testified that he had
ired a sign, contractor, Em-
raid Coast Signs, to do his
signage, and that he had re-
ed on that company to pro-
ide him with expertise on


county sign regulations. He
said he had no idea his
signage was too large until he
received.a letter to that effect
from Walton County Code
Enforcement.
While admitting that a
mistake was made, McGill
contended that the signs
were nevertheless "in har-
mony" with 'the sign ordi-
nance and that the building
signage was "tastefully
done.",
Shamah said he had no
plans, for any additional let-
tering ohn th6 building.
"I feel for you," DRB mem-
ber PauLSSmith told Shamah
Smith however explained,
that the biggest mistake in'
the matter was that the con-
tractor did not apply for a,
sign permit. He also stated
that the sign contractor, was
not licensed at the time.
.If a sign permit had been
applied for, the excessive size
of the signs and lettering in
the plans would have come to
light at that time, Smith
said.
McGill said the $18,000
signs have been in place only
one year. He suggested that
the board c6uld-attach a
seven-year amortization pe-
riod for the signs after which
Shamah would be required to
put up signage that would
comply with the code stan-
dards.
"The message we'd send is
'put up your sign illegally and
have six years to keep it,'"
Smith retorted.
Smith contended that it
would be possible to fix the
signs without totally redoing
them. He suggested just cut-
ting the size of the word "PA-
CIFIC" in half to match
smaller the. "RESORT
WEAR" lettering that ap-
pears below.
"Mr. Shamah is a victim,
not a predator," commented
Carl Hammons, Walton
County planner. "This is a
man of honor, no question
about it," he said of the store
owner.
Hammons added that none
of this, however, makes the
signage less offensive in view
of the ordinance.
"It was never put up by le-
gal permit...it's not a little too
big, it's a lot too big," he re-
marked.
Shamah was directed to
bring the signage on his
building facades into compli-
ance within six months, ei-
ther by modifying or remov-
ing it. Any fines levied for his
failure to do so will be retro-
active to Jan. 6, the date of
the DRB decision. The store
owner will be required to
bring his proposed changes
before the board for consid-
eration prior to changing the
signs.

ing Howard Group, told the
board members that the de-
velopment company had
tried to respond to DRB con-
cerns expressed the previous
month. He assured the board
members of the company's
desire to support the corridor
standards in developing this
"massive project."
Four main identification
signs that had been proposed
last month at a size exceed-
ing the Scenic Corridor Stan-
dards by 7.8 square feet had
since been reduced to comply
with the ,80-square-foot
maximum.

'We're really grateful that
so many restaurants are

Beth Risch said. "I think it's
a wonderful opportunity for
us to obtain some essential
funding to 'support our pro-

that the signs would be ex-
ternally,lit per code stan-
dards.
The dimensions of previ-
ously proposed directory/
monument signs had also
been reduced to meet code.
In response to DRB con-
cerns, proposed signage fac-
ing U.S. 98 had been reduced
as well to less than 10 per-
cent of building front area;
prior to reduction, the
signage had not exceeded the,
code standards.
According to the standards,
each property is allowed one
temporary sign at a time.
Due to the size of the devel-
opment, a variance to allow
10 temporary signs at a time
had'been requested. This
month the request was re-
duced to six temporary signs.
Current, plans include ex-
posed neon signage, edge-of-
canopy-mounted signs, verti-
cal marquis signs, and verti-
cal mosiac background signs
on the internal portion of the
site. Much of this would prob-
ably not comply with corridor
standards. However, board
member Paul Smith noted
that since these deviations
would be located over 400
feet from the, corridor and not
visible from that right-of-
way, they would not be part


of the DRB's purview. (The
corridor is considered to ex-
tend 400 feet north and south
of the highway.)
Smith's only concern was
that the developer had pro-
posed placing signs for some
of the internally located busi-
nesses on the front of the
buildings facing U.S. 98,
which would put them in the
category of the off-premises
signs prohibited by the code.
The Market Shops at
Sandestin had once re-
quested permission to do the
same thing and was denied.
Howard Group agreed to
strike that part of the pro-
posal.
This narrowed the vari-
ance request to the six tem-
porary signs plus a request
to exceed the 18-foot height
maximum for building signs
by 10 feet. The latter vari-
ance would be to allow top
floor businesses in the two-
story buildings to display
signs on their facades.
The board members dis-
cussed the fact that appar-
ently the 18-foot limit had
been set without buildings
taller than one story in mind.
Smith noted that this vari-
ance had been approved for
several other-businesses in
the past.

Small business owner
Charlie Burke of Cherry Pep-
pers suggested that, rather
than approving the extension
of this height limit as a vari-
ance, that the code should be
amended to allow higher
signs for all businesses.
"We're not asking for any
favors," Keith Howard of
Howard Group responded.
He noted that any complex
has the right to request the
same deviation as part of a
master signage plan.
Janet Reeves, owner of
Footprints Gift Shop,
complimented Howard on'
the beauty of his develop-
ments but urged the board
members to "stick to the
code." This must happen in
order for the standards to
become fair for all, she com-
mented.
The DRB approved the
signage plans, including the
deviations for more tempo-
rary signs and higher build-
ing signs. The decision was
unanimous among the six
members voting, with Bob
Johnson, board chairman,
recusing himself from voting
and discussion due to a busi-
ness association with
Howard Group.

Good chemistry helps Kate-
Bosworth win role as Lois Lane
vnu entertainment report

Superman has found his Lois Lane
and his Lex Luthor. r .
Kate Bosworth will play the Man of f
Steel's plucky fellow reporter, and Kevin *- "-
Spacey is set to play the superhero's
nemesis in Bryan Singer's Superman .. -
movie for Warner Bros. Pictures. .
The comic book movie would reunite
the two actors, who currently appear in
Spacey's "Beyond the Sea" as Sandra Dee BOSWORTH
and Bobby Darin.
The casting of Lane was a long pro-
cess that ultimately rested on a chemistry test between
the actress and Brandon Routh, who is playing Superman,
sources said. Bosworth reportedly beat out the likes of
Claire Danes, Linda Cardellini and Michelle Monaghan.
Sources said Singer wanted Spacey early on but that
the actor's commitment to London's Old Vic Theatre, where
he is artistic director, caused scheduling problems in the
process of making a deal.
Spacey will do a limited run of "The Philadelphia Story"
at the theater before moving to the Superman movie.

TESTING AND FINDING

A WATER LEAK

If your water bill is higher than usual for no
apparent reason its time to do a little household
investigatinl to see if you have a leak.


First. turn off all appliances that use water such
as washing machines, ice-makers, and faucets. Then,
make sure no one uses any water for at least an hour.
That means do not use any sinks or faucets, in-
side or out, and no toilet flushing. Next. go out-
side and check the reading on your meter. After an
hour, check the meter again. If it has not moved then
there are no leaks. If it has, check each fixture, fau-
cet and appliance, one by one. Be sure to also look
I for any telltale puddles or w\et spots on floors or ceil-
inug. A leak within a w all or under a floor, left unat-
tended. could result in serious structural damage over
a period of time.


If you still can't find the leak in the house you
can step up your investigation and try to determine
if a leak is outside the house.


First, you will need to turn the water off where
it enters your home. Note the reading on the water
meter and then take a break. Later, check the meter
again and see if the reading has changed. If the read-
ing has changed then you have found the leak. If it
hasn't. then you may need to call a plumber and have
him determine if you have a leak.


By taking a little time to get to the bottom of
your rising water bill, you could save a lot of money.

and take notice. This past
Sunday night proved that
the people do know what they
want and their voting set the
pace and saved the careers of
several performers.
The 31st Annual People's
Choice Awards is an event
that is dedicated to the
"think" process of the Ameri-
can public. The entertain-
ment magazines and produc-
tion teams present a variety
of nominees in more than 35
categories to the public and
then the vote is cast by mean
of Internet voting.
TV audiences saw a return
of the character of George
from the hit NBC show "Sein-
field," when Jason Alexan-
der hit the stage to play host
for the evening's festivities.
He was joined by Malcolm-
Jamal Warner.
This year, there was a
shock award that many had
cast aside because of its con-

Moore about the reaction by
President George W. Bush
after the Sept. 11, 2001 at-
tacks, was one for the history
books.
It won favorite movie of the
year.
On opposite extremes, Mel
Gibson's, "The Passion of the
Christ," won in the favorite
movie drama category. Both
films took looks at lives of an
individual and both were
said to be two of the hardest
and most, in-depth pictures
in history.
Everybody's favorite don-
key and green ogre took
home awards for their parts
in "Shrek 2." The animated
movie won for favorite ani-
mated movie. Eddie Murphy,
the donkey, won for best ani-
mated movie star and Jen-
nifer Saunders won for her,
character as: best animated
villain.
Julia Roberts and Johnny
Depp won best male and
female movie stars. Marg
Helgenberger won for favor-
ite female TV star.
"Will & Grace," won for
favorite TV comedy and
"CSI: Crime Scene Investiga-
tion" was named favorite TV
drama. Another break-
through show that has
helped ABC regain ground in
the competitive network
market was "Desperate
Housewives" which won for
favorite new TV drama.
The break-out show that
surprised millions as the


votes were being tabulated
in the first hour of the pro-
gram, was the show, "Joey,"
starring Matt LeBlanc, from
the NBC series "Friends."
The actor not only won best
new TV comedy, LeBlanc
also racked up the award for
best actor on a television
series.
The awards came just in
time as Hollywood insiders
and NBC producers were
about to pull the plug on the
show that just aired last
season. The awards program
is for many of the production
companies and actors, their
last means of saving their
shows and even their ca-
reers.
The People's Choice
Awards is the first in a vari-
ety of awards that are given
out to actors both on film, on
television and in the music
industry. Many go on to win
awards at the Golden Globes,
the Oscars and the Emmys.
Many of those who have
won the awards say that no
matter what awards are
given them throughout their
careers, it is the People's
Choice Award because of
who it is decided by; no asso-
ciations, no industry board of
directors and no guild selec-
tions, just the people them-
selves.
It is the vote of the people,
for their favorite star and
many say that this award is
the biggest form of flattery to
a performer's career that can
be bestowed on them.

Bid for Laughs
'Meet the Fockers' feels like
a concocted formula romp
that's propelled by jokes
rather than situations
By Sheri Linden
vnu entertainment report
If Ben Stiller's Greg Focker
had a lot to worry about in
"Meet the Parents," he's
nearly paralyzed with anxi-
ety in the follow-up. It's one
thing to confront your worst
fears in the form of your
girlfriend's dad a retired
CIA profiler with a penchant
for schedules and surveil-
lance, played with comic in-
,,tcnifty by Robert-De Niro,-
but it's another to 'le'tthe'
WASPy Byrneses of Oyster
Bay onto Focker Isle, the New
Age abode of your ultrafree-
spirited parents.
The first film's hilarity
flowed naturally from the
brilliant comic tension be-
tween Stiller's out-of-his-ele-
ment lone Jew and De Niro,
but here the story again
scripted by Jim Herzfeld and
John Hamburg feels
jammed into a sitcom-shaped
bid for laughs. With its sur-
feit of sex and toilet jokes,
"Meet the Fockers" tries too
hard, and the gags never hit
the heights of "Parents." Still,
the ensemble's giddy chemis-
try and the addition of per-
fectly cast topliners Dustin
Hoffman and Barbra
Streisand should find
"Fockers" entertaining huge
crowds.
Stiller returns as insecure
male nurse Greg, two years
into his relationship with
teacher Pam (Teri Polo).
Months before tying the knot,
they're taking her parents to
Florida to meet his folks.
Mildly daffy Dina (Blythe
Danner) has no agenda, but


HKART bY6A


D v


S


ft


Dustin Hoffman (left) portrays Bernie Focker, Barbra
Streisand portrays his wife Roz Focker, Robert De Niro re-
turns as Jack Byrnes and Blythe Danner returns as Dina
Byrnes in "Meet the Fockers," the follow-up to the comedy hit,
"Meet the Parents."


Jack (De Niro) sees the trip
as a scientific study that will
determine whether the
Focker family circle is worthy
of linking v.ith that of the
.Byrneses. He insists that
they travel in his customized
motor coach, a climate-con-
trolled, Kevlar-coated box the
size of a small city.
Joining them are Little
Jack, the Byrneses' baby
'grandson, and Jack's beloved
cat, Mr. Jinx, who's learned
how to flush since we last saw
him.
It's no wonder Greg is fro-
zen with apprehension:'The
"doctor and lawyer" he's de-
scribed are in truth a sex
therapist :for. seniors
(Streisand) and an attorney
who traded in his practice to
be a stay-at-home dad
(Hoffman). Bernie Focker dis-
dains the "macho crap" that
defines Jack, while Roz sees
a couple in need of her exper-
tise. No old-school Jews they,
but they kvell nonetheless
over everything about Greg.
The film deals out its obliga-
tory lesson to Jack, but are
his fetish for regimentation
and investigatory compul-
sions really more deserving of
rebuke than the Fockers' in-
trusions?
Their no-boundaries effu-


siveness provides just the
right clash' of sensibilities
with the buttoned-down
Byrneses. In her first screen
role since her seLf-d]ieqted,..
turn in 1996"s "The Mirror'
Has Two Faces," Streisand is
a sweetly overbearing New
Age yenta, while Hoffman,
who delivered winning comic
work earlier this year in "I
(Heart) Huckabees," is spot-
on as a guy who holds noth-
ing back.
It's great to see them, along
with De Niro and Danner, let-
ting loose in a comedy. But.
things could have been a lot
loopier, a la the 1979-vintage
"In-Laws." Instead, the writ-
ers and returning director
Jay Roach have concocted a
formula romp that's propelled
(sometimes just barely) by
jokes rather than situations.
Unlike the nonstop, cumula-
tive comic force of "Parents,"
the sequel often stands still.
Tech contributions are
strong, notably Rusty Smith's
flavorful upscale-hippie de-
sign for the Fockers' spread
and Carol Ramsey's flowing
ethno-getups for Roz. Shelley
Berman is in briefly as one of
her grateful clients, and
.Owen Wilson cameos late in
the proceedings, complete
with yarmulke and panpipe.

PREMIUMS


that Florida must be self-sus-
taining and that premiums
must equal exposure. These
are the basic economics that
Rio was talking about that
affect the availability and
affordability of insurance for
Floridians.
Rio said that State Farm
paid out over $3 billion last
year and received 151,000
claims between August and
October. "We are in the hole
again," he said, which illus-
trates the extreme riskiness
of the insurance business in
Florida.
Turning to Walton County,
Rio remarked on the beauty
of the area ("heaven") and the
current building boom.
"Some of the county's
choices will increase premi-
ums," he said, referring to
higher density along the'
coast. "It is stretching the
demand significantly," he
said. "Although there are
benefits to development, it is
important to realize that
costs come along with those
benefits," he continued.
"The supply (of insurance)
is not adequate," he stated,
explaining that Citizens, the
insurer oflast resort, will end
up with these policies. One of
Rio's concerns is that Citi-'
zens will become a perma-
nent entity in Florida.
It was meant to be tempo-
rary, and then go out of busi-
ness,'he explained, but legal
and public policy choices
have not induced enough pri-.
vate insurers to return to
Florida, he thought.
Citizens has been criticized
recently by Florida Chief Fi-
nancial, Officer Tom
Gallagher for slow responses
to claims following last year's
storms, and the company re-
cently acknowledged before a
state task force that they had
insufficient numbers of ad-
justers for the volume of
claims received. Rio com-
mented on that concern, not-
ing that one reason Citizens
did not have a large staff of
adjusters at the ready is be-
cause it really was not in-
tended to become a perma-
nent company.
Citizens is now the single
largest insurer of coastal and
high risk properties in
Florida.
Rio talked about a 1999
case that went to the Florida
Appeals Court after
Hurrricane Irene destroyed a
Ft. Lauderdale home. The

From Front


windstorm pool, now Citi,-"
zens, refused to-pay the ho-
meowner the full policy l in it,
arguing it was responsible
.only for the amount of dam-
age caused by wind.
However, the court ruled
that if the wind carrier has
any liability at all, even a
fractional share of the total
damage, under "the valued
policy law" it is liable for the
face amount of the policy. In
the 1999 case, some of the
damage was caused by flood-
ing.
A similar case is now un-
derway in Escambia County.
Citizens is suing an Escam-
bia County couple whose
home was damaged by Hur-
ricane Ivan. Last November,
the homeowners collected the
full amount of their flood in-
surance policy, and are also
demanding the full amount
of their windstorm policy
from Citizens.
Citizens alleges that only a
small portion of the damage
to the home was from wind
and that Citizens should not
have to pay for losses caused
by flooding. The outcome of
the case could affect many
policyholders, as well as in-
surance rates.
It is situations such as this
that keep private insurers
out of the market, Rio said.
He believes policy changes at
the state level and improve-
ments to the CAT fund would
bring more companies back
into Florida, but the rates
will need to reflect the risks,
he concluded.
A Joint Select Committee
on Hurricane Insurance has
been formed by the Florida
Legislature to study "aspects
of the residential insurance
market in light of the poten-
tial $20 billion in losses from
the 2004 storms, which has
provided a serious challenge
to maintaining a viable pri-
vate sector market and to
keeping premium increase to
a bare minimum."
Issues identified for fur-
ther study include multiple
deductibles, evaluations for
ensuring 'the proper funding
of the Cat fund, and explora-
tions of options to reduce the
size of Citizens Property In-
surance Corporation.
"Premiums in general will
have to go up," Rio said. "If
and when Citizens runs out
of money, a surcharge will be
added to all policyholders,"
he warned.
