The DeFuniak Springs PUBLISHED CONTINUOUSLY SINCE 1888




AWHERALD
Combined With The Breeze






S ,,.... *- -i ll.^


SHERIFF JOHNSON said the jail itself appeared to be rapidly deteriorating due to the stress of construction.


Evolution of a jail


By RON KELLEY
After years of discussion,
thousands of dollars spent on
multiple plans, complaints
from the sheriff's office and
outcries from the public, the
Walton County Commission
(BCC) voted to suspend con-
struction on the jail project
in downtown DeFuniak
Springs.
The evolution of the jail
project has had many twists
and turns since former Sher-
iff Quinn McMillian and Col.
Bill Chapman first began
describing their overcrowd-
ing problem to the BCC in
June 1998. Initially, pro-
posed plans called for a sec-
ond floor above the jail,
larger administrative offices
and a larger kitchen for an
estimated cost of about $4
million by then number one-
ranked Carlan- Killam &
Associates.
According to a summary
provided by the Walton
County Sheriff's Office,
nothing else happened dur-
ing this time regarding the
jail while a new south Wal-
ton substation was built, as
was the South Walton Court-
house Annex. In April 2000,
Ronnie Bell presented esti-
mates of $7.5 million to build
a new jail on-site and $7.3 to
build off-site. Bell noted that
building downtown would
not allow for future expan-
sion.
In May, records indicate
that Sheriff McMillian rec-
ommended building an in-
mate work camp off-site,
rather than remodeling the
jail. McMillian explained
that only a small percentage
of the county inmates re-
J quired maximum security
lock down and the current
jail could serve that function.
McMillian offered to move
his administration offices to
Davis Lane, next to the
Emergency Operations Cen-
ter and said the change
would reduce their current
cost estimates by half.
In February 2001, follow-
inlg McMillian's unsuccessful


reelection bid, Sheriff Ralph
Johnson advised the BCC
that the state would provide
the plans for a 275-bed work
camp at no charge and pro-
vide inmate labor to further
cut costs and that the facil-
ity could be built in six
months on 40 acres of
county-owned land next to
the landfill on SR 83.
He estimated the cost at
around $1 million, plus
$200,000 to run sewer to the
site.
According to minutes of the
meeting, Commissioner
Larry Jones stated that he
had seen Walton Correc-
tional Institution's work
camp and felt it would be suf-
ficient to meet the sheriff's
needs and Ronnie Bell sug-
gested the possibility of relo-
cating the entire jail facility
to the site of the work camp,
allowing for future expansion
of the courthouse.
Commissioner Jones mo-
tioned to proceed with the
conceptual plan for the work
camp and commissioners
Walker, Rees, Pauls and
Ryan made it unanimous.
However, from there, the
path forked again. Some of-
ficials have suggested that
the change may' have been
the result of a feud between
a one-term commissioner and


Sheriff Johnson. No one
knows for sure. After 2WR
Holmes-Wilkins architec-
tural firm became involved,
the plan for a work camp dis-
solved in favor of construc-
tion downtown to be com-
pleted in 2.6 years. Architect
Mike Rutland said the down-
town project would cost about
$10.1 million while the off-
site plan would cost $15.7
million.
A jail committee was
formed, led by commissioners
Herman Walker and Tim
Pauls, and included several
county staffers, attorneys
and judges, the city police
chief, a jail administrator
and Sheriff Johnson, who
stated his opposition to the
downtown site. After three
meetings, a majority of the
committee members voted to
recommend the downtown
project.
According to records, in
February 2002, the county's
finance director, Bill Imfeld,
furnished a list of 30 differ-
ent projects priced less than
the 2WR proposal of a 411-
bed jail, an administration
building and a records cen-
ter all for just over $12.2 mil-
lion that supposedly met the
county's need for the next 25
to 50 years.
Shortly after being elected,


commissioners Ro Cuchens
and Kenneth Pridgen ex-
pressed a desire to halt the
downtown jail project in fa-
vor of an off-site project, but
were outvoted 3-2 by commis-
sioners Pauls, Rees and
Jones.
In March of 2003, records
indicate that Walton County
Construction Manager
Marvin Collier reported that
estimated costs of building
downtown had risen to over
$14 million dollars.
After Watkins Construc-
tion Company filed for bank-
ruptcy, Peter Brown & Asso-
ciates got the job.
According, to Sheriff
Johnson, as recently as De-
cember 2004, it was discov-
ered that work was being
started out of order. That is,
phase II work was being
done during phase I and,
apparently, no design plans
had been included for a book-
ing area or laundry facilities
and the proposed adminis-
trative offices actually con-
tained less floor space than
the current overcrowded fa-
cility.
Further, Sheriff Johnson
told the Herald-Breeze that
there were problems with
the kitchen design as well as
see JAIL Pg 8A


AS OF JAN. 1, 2005, the costs to house female inmates in a tent within the compound
had reached $391,447 and rising.


FDOT contributes to city projects


By LIZ SINCLAIR
The DeFuniak Springs
City Council approved three
joint participation agree-
ments (JPAs) with Florida
Department of Transporta-
tion (FDOT) that will lead to
further improvements at the
city's municipal airport.
The first JPA involves a se-
curity fence around the 160
plus acres, encompassing
both the airport and the in-
dustrial/business area to the
south. The second JPA will
bring a jet fuel facility, and


the third pays for the updat-
ing of a master plan/airport
layout plan (ALP).

When the city first began
discussing fencing, it was to
be three lengths of barbed
wire around the airport only,
with an estimated cost of
$88,000. With Homeland Se-
curity came changes in re-
quirements. The seven foot
fencing topped with barbed
wire comes at a cost of closer
to a half million dollars.
FDOT will contribute


$390,400 over a two year pe-
riod.
FDOT will pay $72,000 of
the $90,000 it will take to
install a jet fuel "farm" at the
airport, which will allow for
the fueling of small jets. The
city will contribute the re-
mainder of the cost.

In the agreement regard-
ing the ALP, the cost is
$60,000. FDOT will pay
$48,000 of that.
The city is also negotiating
the rental from the state of


the FDOT maintenance facil-
ity on North Park Street.
The city could use the 10
acres for storage and main-
tenance.

FDOT is planning to build
a new facility, consolidating
several Panhandle opera-
tions, on Rock Hill Road,
south of DeFuniak Springs.
FDOT has asked the city to
run its waterline south down
Hwy. 331 for 2.8 miles to the
site at a cost to the city of
$350,000.


charges involved

surveillance

operations


By BRUCE COLLIER
DeFuniak Springs resident
John Winton Sims, 78, was
arrested on January 11 and
booked on charges of at-
tempted lewd and lascivious
molestation of a 15-year-old
female. Following the initial
incident, the alleged victim,
also a DeFuniak resident,
appears to have been fitted'
with a recording device and
sent back a second time as
part of a police surveillance
operation. DeFuniak Springs
Police Chief Investigator
Lonnie Pippins prepared an
initial narrative case report,
dated December 28. Supple-
mental reports dated Decem-
ber 29 and January 4 were
prepared by DeFuniak
Springs Police Chief Ray
Burgess.
According to Pippins' re-
port, the alleged victim was
employed at the Christmas
Reflections building at the
Lake Yard on the evening of
December 28. The victim al-
leges that Sims thanked her
for her work, then hugged
her, then allegedly "kissed
her all over the face and lips."
Sims then allegedly put his
hand inside her jacket and
touched her breast. The al-
leged victim later told her
mother, who telephoned the
police.
The supplemental report
made by Chief Burgess.,
dated December 29, states


that police provided the juve-
nile with a transmitter to
record conversation between
herself and the suspect. Ac-
cording to the report, the girl
told police that she arrived at
the Lake Yard at approxi-
mately 5:15 p.m. The police
took up a surveillance posi-
tion at the Lake Yard at 6
p.m.
According to the 12/29 re-
port, the girl says that some
five minutes after she had
arrived at the Lake Yard,
Sims tried to kiss her on the
lips, but she refused. The
report states that the surveil-
lance transmitter "became
hot" at 8:45 p.m., some 3 1/2
hours after this alleged inci-
dent. The report does not
specify which of the actions
and statements reported
therein were recorded by po-
lice, and which were reported
to the police by the alleged
victim.
A supplemental report
made by Chief Burgess,
dated January 4, states that
Sims was called to the police
department, advised of his
rights, and questioned about
the incidents. Sims report-
edly admitted to kissing the
girl on the face and lips, but
denied that he had touched
her breast.
The Walton County Clerk
of Court's office stated that
no dates for hearings have
been set as yet.


Freeport City

Council proposes

longer terms of office


By BEN GRAFTON
Making up for time lost
over the holidays, the first
Freeport City Council meet-
ing of 2005 covered a lot of
ground including the first
reading, by City Attorney
Clayton Adkinson, of two
ordinances which would
lengthen, the terms of coun-
cil members and the mayor
from the present two to four
years. The change would be-
come effective at the next
election to choose the mayor
and council members in July
2005. The first reading of the
ordinances was approved
and the second reading will
be held at the meeting on
Feb. 8.
In other business: two de-
velopment orders were rec-
ommended for approval by
Paul Miller of the West
Florida Regional Planning
Council. The first of these is
for work on a 1.86 acre par-
cel opposite Frank's Cash &
Carry Hardware that is be-
ing developed by Ronny
Brannon LLC. The second is
in the industrial park where
Mannon Freeport Invest-
ments is putting in a ware-
house. Both orders were ap-
proved by the council.
The council then consid-
ered the proposed changes in
a large scale amendment to
the Walton County Compre-
hensive Plan for a residential
development on approxi-
mately 330 acres west of U.S.
331 North near Bourbon
Street. The developer,
Freeport Residential, Inc.,
now proposes changing zon-
ing of the property from ru-
ral development to rural vil-
lage which permits an aver-
age of two residential units
per acre.
The developer would like.to
build 607 units which would
be clustered on about 193.5
acres of uplands within the
property. Miller reported that
the infrastructure impacts
for the development will be
within limits if the an-
nounced U.S. 331 by-pass is
built. Bourbon Street and one
other road to be identified
would access the property.
Walter Medley of Moore Bass
Consultants, speaking for
the developer, told the coun-


cil that there would be a
change to include five lots of
two acres each, separated
from adjacent properties by
a fifty- foot buffer zone, at the
southern boundary of the
property.

The developer is looking at
two additional access roads
and drainage problems
would be identified and re-
solved. A hearing will be con-
ducted on Jan. 27 to consider
transmittal of the proposal to
rural development with a re-
quest for comments.
Adkinson presented the
first reading of proposed
changes to the land develop-
ment code and asked ap-
proval for advertising the
second reading. Changes
would include, among other
things, the function of the
planning board, revisions to
lot sizes, provisions for town
homes, a list of nuisance
trees, a list of drought resis-
tant plants, etc. The council
approved the reading and the
request for advertising the
Second reading.
Mayor Mickey Marse ad-
vised the council that City
Engineer Charles Peters had
completed a feasibility study
and analysis of the expansion
of the Freeport Sewer Sys-
tem to serve residents south
to the Choctawhatchee Bay
and east to the Black Creek
area. A copy of the study is
available at City Hall for
public review. The city will
meet with the Walton County
Commission in January and
ask for their approval to pro-
ceed. The council approved a
request to advertise and re-
ceive bids for the work. Bids
will be due on Feb. 18.
The first reading of an or-
dinance to annex property on
Old Jolly Bay road belonging
to Rob Tullis was approved.
The second reading is sched-
uled for Feb. 8.
The council approved fire
department impact fees for
new commercial and residen-
tial construction within the
city limits.
The council agreed to inter-
view the single applicant for
the job of city planner at the
see FREEPORT Pg 9A







THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JANUARY 20, 2005


DeFuniak's traveling director


By BRUCE COLLIER
Alicia Leonard travels
daily, partly for work, partly
for her art. By day, Leonard
manages an office in
Crestview, handling calls and
scheduling meetings with
customers. Come quitting
time, the DeFuniak resident
gets in her car and heads not
east, but west. Leonard's sec-
ond job is directing "Luv,"
Murray Schisgal's three-per-
son comedy of love and mar-
riage, for Milton's Imogene
Little Theatre. The pay isn't
much, in fact it's only a few
dollars for gasoline, but
Leonard is doing "Luv" for
love, and to learn every as-
pect of the craft of theatre.
Leonard first worked in
theatre in DeFuniak Springs,
as prompter and on set con-
struction for the Florida
Chautauqua Theatre's 2001
production of Shakespeare's
"Hamlet." In 2002 she di-
rected and stage managed
the Chautauqua's production
of Jerome Alden's "Bully: An
Adventure with Theodore
Roosevelt." An acting class
gave her the nerve to step up
and audition for a role at
Florida Chautauqua.
Leonard made her acting de-
but in 2003 as the canine title
character in "Sylvia," a love
triangle involving a husband,
a wife, and a dog. She found
the experience both terrify-
ing. and exhilerating.
The traveling began with
her next job, Leonard's hus-
band, Mickey, encouraged
her to audition for a role in
Tom Dulack's gangster com-
edy "Breaking Legs," with
Stage Crafters in Ft. Walton
Beach. The play's director
questioned Leonard about
her commitment. If offered a
lead role, would she be will-
ing to travel from DeFuniak
Springs every weeknight for
several months to rehearse?
Leonard committed, and af-
ter an initial struggle for con-
fidence in a new arena, she


which will run February 17 -
20 at Imogene Little Theatre
in Milton, she will once more .
take the Imogene stage as
Helena in Shakespeare's "A
Midsummer Night's Dream,"
which will open in late
spring. For information
about her shows, call the
Imogene theatre number is


ALICIA LEONARD OF
DeFUNIAK travels widely to
act and direct


was ready for opening night.
Her performance received
good reviews, and her photo
even appeared on the cover
of a newspaper.
A former nurse, social
worker, and incorrigible vol-
unteer, Leonard continues to
divide her time and efforts
among a number of local the-
atres. She has assistant
stage managed at Stage
Crafters, volunteered in-
house at Seaside Repertory
Theatre, and both acted and
directed at Imogene Little
Theatre. Her relationship
with the Imogene began in
2003. Though she had di-
rected only once before,
Leonard took the reins and
directed a stage full of actors
in Kaufman and Hart's com-
edy "You Can't Take It With
You." She learned as she
went, partly from books,
partly from friends, and
partly from her own experi-
ence. "I direct the way I
would like to be directed," she
says.
Since then, Leonard has
directed "Bully" once again,
and acted in Imogene's 2004
productions of Edward J.
Moore's "The Sea Horse," and
Robert Harling's "Steel Mag-
nolias." She also acted in a
short film, "Dirty Little Se-
crets," about soccer-playing
housewives. Following "Luv,"


850-626-1178.
In addition to her day and
night jobs, Leonard is read-
ing as many playscripts and
theatre books as she can find.
"I want to get experience in
every aspect of the theatre,
on stage and backstage."
Look for her in a theatre near
you, and some not so near.

LETTERS TO THE EDITORS


PERSONAL COMMENTS




Editor's Comment





Kudos for commissioners


By Ron Kelleyh
The members of the Walton County Commission deserve
our praise and gratitude for having the courage to revisit
the issue of the planned Walton County Jail and for then
display in. the courage of their convictions by voting to sus-
pend the project.
This controversial multilayered topic has vexed citizens
and officials alike since it was first discussed in 1998. Over
the course of the last seven years, there have been different
commissioners, different sheriffs, different architects, dif-
ferent plans, different contractors and different ideas about
how and where a new jail should be built.
The most recent plan, to build the new jail in downtown
DeFuniak Springs behind the county courthouse, has been
the most hotly-contested. As protesters predicted, it has
become apparent that it will be impossible to construct a
large enough jail, as well as the required support facilities,
to meet the needs of the jail population anticipated over
the next five years on the amount of land the county has
managed to acquire, so far.
Sheriff Johnson has been quoted as saying that, on the
day the downtown jail project is completed, the county will
immediately have to start building another facility, off-site.
It is equally apparent that trying to cram the jail onto
that spot will also eliminate the possibility of ever expand-
ing the courthouse itself. Citizens are already forced to travel
to several different locations to visit all county constitu-
tional offices and county department heads to conduct their
county business.
Parking at and around the courthouse has been inad-
equate for as long as this editor has been alive and filling
every square foot of space with either jail or courthouse
facilities is not likely to improve the situation.
There's certainly no commercial benefit to building a
larger jail downtown. The inmates will not be shopping in
our downtown stores or eating in downtown restaurants.
Property values downtown will also not be improved by hav-
ing a larger jail.
The good news is that a majority of our county commis-
sioners also recognize these facts. Commissioners Ro
Cuchens, Cindy Meadows, Scott Brannon and Kenneth
Pridgen should be commended for breaking the cycle of pour-
ing good money after bad. Their foresight and commitment
to the public will ultimately save taxpayers millions of dol-
lars and allow for future expansion of county facilities that
experts already recognize is coming. Incidentally,, this is
actually the second time that Ro Cuchens and Kenneth
15dgen have voted against continuing with the downtown
project. I admire them for sticking to their guns.
I also want to say that, although I disagree with his deci-
sion, I admire Commissioner Larry Jones for voting his con-
science, too. That's all I ever ask of a commissioner. In fact,
I am wary of too many unanimous votes. It always makes
me think that someone is not being represented. Person-
ally, I don't know of any five people who agree on every-
thing all the time, especially politicians.
The next important decision for the commissioners is
where to locate a permanent jail site and how best to alleve
the immediate problem of severe jail overcrowding.
Although it sounds difficult, I don't think it's nearly as
complicated as it may seem.
First of all, I'm not convinced that the old Wal-Mart build-
ing is the answer. There may be some viable reasons for the
county to purchase a prime piece of commercial property
and remove it from the market and the tax rolls, but filling
it with jail inmates is nowhere on the list. If a jail behind
the courthouse is a poor idea, a jail in the middle of
DeFuniak's fastest-growing commercial thoroughfare is
even worse.
A temporary jail and prison yard is not likely to woo many
shoppers or commercial developers to the shopping center.
I also don't think it looks too good to have visitors driving
through town to look over and see Walton County's new
Jail-Mart Super Center with Deputy Barney Fife as the
'greeter.'

Then there's the cost of remodeling the Wal-Mart build-
ing to accommodate hundreds of inmates. One commissioner
told me that the purchase price is $1.75 million and remod-
eling is estimated at about $2 million. Then comes the ne-
cessity of remodeling again, after the inmates are moved
to the permanent site. That's bound to be another million
or so. All of that adds up to about $5 million for temporary
inmate housing. Why?
Here's my suggestion: establish the permanent site for
the jail, sheriff's administration offices and all support fa-
cilities, on 40 acres of property the county already owns
next to the landfill and Walton Corrections Institution. This
would allow for almost unlimited expansion as needed over
the next several decades. Take the millions needed to re-
model (and re-remodel) the Wal-Mart building and apply it
to running utility lines to the site and building minimum-
security inmate housing.
Statistics show that usually less than 15 percent of a
county jail's inmate population require maximum security.
Thus, the first phase would be less expensive than trying
to construct a temporary maximum-security facility and
would relieve the immediate overcrowding. It appears that
the minimum-security facility could be completed as soon,
if not sooner than the Wal-Mart remodeling. This would
require the sheriff's office to oversee two facilities for a short
period of time, but the same thing would be required with
the Wal-Mart plan.
Located 10 minutes from downtown, transportation would
not be an issue. Other counties handle greater distances
with nary a hiccup. First appearances could be done via
closed-circuit TV, as is also done in many other counties.
As soon as the emergency overcrowding problem is alle-
viated, construction could begin on a smaller maximum-
security facility and the administration offices.
The result would be a larger courthouse with room for all
county offices and constitutional officers and room to grow
larger when needed (and it will be needed). Citizens could
do all of their county business at one place, thereby reduc-
ing voter-frustration, anxiety and animosity.
There'll also be a bigger, better, more-secure jail, larger
sheriff's administrative offices and plenty of room for both
to grow and expand as needed (and it will be needed).
The county would save millions because all work and ex-
penditures would take place at permanent sites, rather than
building up and tearing down temporary quarters at
taxpayer's expense.
In closing, let me simply say that whatever your,fgliggs.
or concerns, your county commissioners want to hear from
you and I encourage everyone to attend their next meeting
on Tuesday, Jan. 25, at the Walton County Courthouse and
let your voice be heard as soon as the standing ovation for
the commissioners ends.





Editor:,
During the last week of 2004, a young man came to my
front door one evening, selling magazine subscriptions.
He said he lived just up the street and was a student at
South Walton High School, earning money for a school trip
to Washington, D.C. I normally don't purchase magazines
from door-to-door salesmen, but I made an exception since
I wanted to support the local school.
Later as I reflected upon a couple of comments the 'stu-
dent' had made, I began to suspect I had.been scammed.
Initial attempts to reach United Subscription Agency in
Vero Beach, Florida, were unsuccessful, as it turns out
they were closed for two weeks during the holidays.
After the holidays, someone in administration at S. Wal-
ton High informed me that the young man was neither a
student there, nor was there a magazine fundraiser. I was
then able to reach United Subscription Agency (USA) and
asked for a refund. The USA representative informed me
that they were simply the vendor, and that the salesman
was an independent contractor who did not live in this
area. USA refused to issue me a refund, as I had not
notified them within 3 days of my purchase, despite the
fact that their offices were closed for two weeks.
Here is a portion of what the Better Business Bureau of
Southeast Florida says on their website about United Sub-
scription Agency:
"Based on BBB files, this company has an unsatisfac-
tory record. Specifically our files show a pattern of failure
to deliver promised goods or services and a pattern of de-
lays in responding to customer complaints in a timely fash-
ion. The company has a pattern of failure to eliminate basic
cause of complaints and a pattern of no response to cus-
tomer complaints brought to its attention by the Bureau."
Buyer beware!

Editor,
I was looking at the television today and turned it to the
world news station. Mr. Bush went to visit Canada not long
ago and talked to the president of that country. Now today,
the world news reported that the president of Canada wants
to stop the people in the United States from buying medi-
cine from Canada.
Mr. Bush, did you have something to do with that deci-
sion? I understand that when you ran for office again, you
told us that you were going to try and get the price of medi-
cine reduced. How can the price of medicine be reduced when
there is no competition from Canada?
If you keep on doing this kind of hardship on the low in-
come people, you will go down in history as the rich man's
president. Oh yes, I forgot, it was the rich people who voted
for you both times. So this will be the second time you have
shafted the low income and lied to them. Due to the high
prices of gas that you have done anything about and the
price of food, people can't afford to buy medicine they need,
at the prices charged them.

Editor,
Divine intervention or just plain good common sense?
Maybe it was a little of both when the Board of County Com-
missioners called a temporary halt to the prison megaplex
construction in downtown DeFuniak Springs. Call it a jail
or call it a prison, either one is slated to grow into a 1,200
bed inmate hotel in the backyard of the courthouse.
Maybe a bolt of lightening struck and the common sense
and wisdom of 1998 flashed back to when then Chairman
Bill Young, and Sheriff Quinn McMillan began the quest to
rebuild the incarceration facility in Walton County. The
idea developed to build the primary facility out of town and
refurbish the downtown facility. But the elections of 2000
came along and things changed.
A reconstituted BCC decided to bring-in a fast-talking jail
construction wizard and put him in charge of a review com-
mittee. He razzle-dazzled his way to become the committee
point man by providing a "free" study valued at about
$40,000. This was parlayed into a $22 million downtown
prison and courthouse complex. When you put the fox in the
henhouse this is what can happen in politics.
It's amazing how professionals can be totally ignored when
politics are involved. Quinn McMillan, Sheriff Ralph
Johnson, and ever single candidate for sheriff (some are pro-
fessionals) in the most recent election were opposed to a
downtown location. Yet, the folks with the power and con-
trol of the money decided otherwise.
Now we have the elections of 2004. The new BCC has
decided to revisit the boondoggle of yesteryear. Rightfully
so! This opportunity opens the door to right a huge mistake
that was jammed into downtown, DeFuniak Springs. Pour-
ing salt on the wound, the BCC did not even have the cour-
tesy to provide a citizen-requested community and economic
impact study on the project.
A megaplex prison does not belong in downtown DeFuniak.
It belongs out of town were there is plenty of room for ex-
pansion. Also, the Sheriff's Office would have acres and acres
of space for training facilities, storage, and other needs that
will surely become necessary not too many years down the
road. The current location is very well suited for courthouse
parking, additional workspace and storage. It can be a beau-
tiful government facility that will enhance the business com-
munity. 'There will be no razor wire decorating the struc-
tures.
The current plan is seriously flawed in design for admin-
istrative offices, evidence security, offices, laundry, and
kitchen facilities. The $14 million jail cost is expected to in-
crease by millions. Now is the time to right tie wrong.
On January 25 there will be a public workshop. This is an
opportunity to study what has been done, how to cut the
losses by utilizing what has already been constructed, make
a final determination on how to address the temporary hous-
ing questions. Once and for all a proper facility at a proper
location can be established that will serve Walton County
for decades ahead.
The citizens of DeFuniak Springs and Walton County
should applaud the new BCC for taking a step back, and
giving us all the opportunity to be better informed and par-
ticipate in making public policy. Citizen input is vital to
good public policy. I urge citizens to pack the courthouse for
the workshop and express themselves no matter their opin-
ion. Do not pass up this opportunity to be heard.

Editor:
The Walton County Commissioners are to be commended
for their decision to revisit the jail and courthouse issues.
Several years ago an attempt was made to resolve over -
crowding in these facilities. The plan devised, but never
adopted, consisted of: locating the jail north of town, estab-
lishing a judicial center around the existing courthouse, and
purchasing the old Walmart Building in which to locate all
county offices.
This plan had many advantages. It solved the over- crowd-
ing and provided adequate parking. It also provided easy
accessibility and convenience for the public. As regards the
jail, it resolved safety issues and avoided having a correc-
tions facility for the town centerpiece. The plan also allowed
for future expansion at all three locations.
The judicial center would provide an anchor for businesses
in the in the downtown area. It is my personal opinion that
this plan should be given additional consideration. A visit
to the center created by Santa Rosa County in Milton should
reassure anyone who has doubts about the plan's feasibil-
ity. Gene Ryan

Editor:
What a pleasant surprise to know the new county com-
missioners have a mind of their own and are willing to lis-
ten to reason. Their new interest in the county jail gives me
faith that all is not lost after all.
I appreciate their forward thinking approach to look fur-
ther down the road and do, the right thing by building a new
jail outside DeFuniak. It's good policy to protect the integ-
rity of the courthouse complex and beautiful DeFuniak
Spring downtown area. Thank you County Commissioners
for doing your best to do the right thing.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JANUARY 20, 2005


Douglass takes Children/Family Services concerns to Paxton Council


By: Kerry Stewart
Due to the Martin Luther
King holiday on Monday,
Jan. 17, Paxton town council
moved their regular meeting
to this past Monday, Jan. 10.
After a review and ap-
proval of the minutes and
bills payable, Gillis Douglass,
a realty agent from DeFu-
niak Springs addressed the
council. Douglass expressed
his concerns over the division
of Family and Children Ser-
vices, currently located in
DeFuniak, moving to Fort
Walton. Currently there are
seventeen (17) employees
working in the DeFuniak of-
fice who would either have to
commute or leave their jobs
if the office were to relocate.
In addition, clients of Fam-
ily and Children Services will
have to commute to Fort
Walton.
For many clients in north
and south Walton County,
this could be upwards of an
hour commute in order to re-
ceive the services. As many
of the clients are elderly and
or have poor transportation,
this would create a great
hardship on them.
It is Douglass' position that
clients from the Paxton area
are already encountering a
hardship trying to travel to
and from DeFuniak and that
more difficulties will be en-
countered over a longer
travel distance.
The move is a proposal
from the Governor's admin-
istration in order to privatize
more services and save
money for the state. Gillis
requested that council pass a
resolution to keep the De-
partment of Human Services


office located in DeFuniak.
Councilman Tommy
Mathis made a motion to
adopt resolution number
2005 1 that carried unani-
mously with a second by
Councilman Joe Melton.
Resolution 2005 1 was
adopted on Jan. 10, 2005 and
opposes the relocation of this
office and hereby requests
the Legislative Delegation
investigate this issue and
pursue all efforts to maintain
the office in DeFuniak
Springs.
During the discussion of
the resolution, it was noted
that a resolution has also
been requested from
Freeport, DeFuniak and the
Walton County Commission-
ers. Douglass has taken on
the cause as the current land-
lord of Children and Family
Services as well as a voice for
the community. Since the em-
ployees who are affected by
the move are paid by the
state, they are not able to
voice their concerns.
Councilwoman Jenice
Armstrong updated council
members of on-going activi-
ties within the street depart-
ment following the presenta-
tion by Douglass,
Armstrong noted the entire
town's streetlights are cur-
rently in working order. In
addition, the potholes on
Webster Lane have now been
repaired.
Armstrong also requested
assistance in having a tree
removed from a street's
right-of-way on Thomas
Drive. There is a tree, which
is sitting 32inches from the
street and is blocking a clear
view of traffic. The city will


contact the county and see if
they can either cut or prune
the tree back.
Frankie Burleson ad-
dressed council requesting
that no more water hookups
be approved over the
Okaloosa County line. There
are currently two homes that
wish to be added to the
town's water supply.
Burleson has already noted
that there are certain times
when the water pressure on
this line is already low. The
line is one and one-quarter
inches and has twenty-four
homes hooked to it currently
over a three-mile span.
Council Chairman Bobby
Kemp noted that he wished
everyone wanting to attach
to the town's water could do
so.
But, until such time that
there was a larger line in the
Svea area, he didn't see how
the town could afford to hook
anyone else up to that spe-
cific line. He said to do so
would decrease the water
pressure under the allowable
limits as set by the Depart-
ment of Environmental Pro-
tection.
Mayor Mark Warren noted
that with leftover grant mon-
ies, the town might be able
to increase the lines in the
future. Other lines feeding off
the water system can accom-
modate additional hookups.
The line running toward
Svea is the only one that can-
not hold an additional
hookup.
Mathis moved that the
town make no new water line
connections to a line which is
one and one-quarter inch or
smaller. Armstrong seconded


the motion and it carried that
these two home would not be
allowed to attach to the cur-
rent line until after it had
been upgraded.
Mayor Mark Warren noti-
fied council that he has been
checking in to the cost, dura-
bility and maintenance is-
sues to purchase a new gen-
erator for the town.
It is anticipated that he
will identify vendors by next
council meeting and request
. the purchase of at least two
generators. After these gen-
erators have been tested and
proven, then he will request
an additional two generators
to bring the town up to a
workable level of power in
case of an emergency.
The town has pressure
washed the town hall, live-
stock barn and Paxton Agri-
cultural Complex.
Warren also noted that he
was working to identify the
goals for each department
over the year.
Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency (FEMA)
representatives meet with
Paxton officials on Friday,
Jan. 7 to assess remaining
damages resulting from Hur-
ricane Ivan.
City Clerk Suzan Davis
had prepared all the appro-
priate paperwork and re-


ceipts that the insurance
company had not been able
to cover. Warren noted that
as a result of having every-
thing ready for FEMA, they
were able to immediately set
up and start processing the
information. FEMA as-
sessed that there was ap-
proximately $17,000 in reim-
bursable expenses due to the
town.
Mathis noted that if a town
makes improvement expen-
diture in order to help allevi-
ate and or save money dur-
ing natural disasters that
they could be reimbursed
these expenses. Mathis re-
quested that Warren follow-
upwith FEMA and see if they
could purchase four genera-
tors for the fire department.
During cases of extended
power outages, the volun-
teers of the fire department
will assist residents in keep-
ing their freezers and other
electrical components operat-
ing at a minimal level or as
much as possible.
Keinp requested that coun-
cil consider a topic to be dis-
cussed at their next meeting.
Kemp wants council to con-
sider the feasibility of mov-
ing the day of council meet-
ing. Options include the sec-

ings as the third Monday of
the month. As Councilwoman
Ann Sexton was unable to
attend this meeting, the dis-
cussion was tabled until next
meeting.

The final item of discussion
was posting of the council
agenda. There is a bulletin
board in town hall where the
agenda is posted. Resident
Bill McRae requested that
the agenda also be posted at
the post office. It was noted
that some people would go to
the post office and not to

every effort to ensure that
the agenda is also consis-
tently posted at the post of-
fice in addition to town hall.

of council will resume next

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JANUARY 20, 2005


THE OLD WAL-MART building may serve as temporary housing for inmates until a
permanent facility can be completed.


JAIL


From Front


severe problems with the ex-
isting sewer system.
Johnson said the second
story above the jail would
have to be built as a stand-
alone office resting on struts
just above the current build-
ing because the jail founda-
tion would not withstand the
weight and stress of another
floor.
As of Jan. 1, 2005, the costs
to house female inmates in
a tent within the compound
had reached $391,447 and
rising. Johnson said the jail
itself appeared to be rapidly
deteriorating due to the
stress of construction.
On Jan. 11, 2005, Capt.
Danny Glidewell appeared
before the Walton County
Commission with a long list
of problems and concerns.
Following a discussion and
comments from attendees,
Commissioner Ro Cuchens
made a motion to halt con-
struction on the downtown
jail project for two weeks and
meet on Jan. 25 to make a
final determination about


the location of the jail. The
motion was seconded by
Commissioner Cindy Mead-
ows and then passed 4-1,
with -Commissioner Jones
voting no.
During discussion, Com-
missioner Scott Brannon
stated that he did not con-
sider downtown DeFuniak
Springs to be the best loca-
tion for a new jail and Com-
missioner Meadows agreed,
saying that it did not seem
like an acceptable use for
downtown. Several citizens
also recommended establish-
ing the jail on county prop-
erty north of DeFuniak
Springs.
Discussion also included
the need for additional court-
house space in the near fu-
ture following the completion
of the current project.
At the same meeting,
Cuchens and Meadows mo-
tioned to purchase the former
Wal-Mart building on the
east side of U.S. 331 S for
$1.75 million, and that also
passed.

meeting on Jan. 27. Council-
woman Janice McLean said
that she felt the requested
salary was too high.
The council rated CDG En-
gineering first among those
firms competing for design of
the new City Hall. A CDG
representative reported that
the firm was ready to go to
work at once and would
present preliminary concepts
at the meeting of Feb. 8. The
new, building will be located
behind the existing building
which will be demolished af-
ter it is vacated. The ball field
will have to be relocated and


the city will stand behind the
cost of relocating the lights
when the new site is selected.
Other issues include trees
and stormwater manage-
ment.
Earl Garner appeared be-
fore the council to advise
them that his company

ters for the Walton County

BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER at Ed's carryout window. SECOND' GENERATION CO- SIGN ON HIGHWAY 90 DIRECTS DINERS to Ed's
OWNER TOMMY SCONIERS takes and the Famous Pub Burger.
By BRUCE CIOLLIER break from duties.
The Herald made an appointment o int d ugt to visit Ed's Restaurant
on Highway 90 at 3:30 on a weekday afternoon. The reason
for this specificity was that any other time of the day would
have been too busy for anyone to talk.
Tommy Sconiers, who owns Ed's in partnership with his t
brother Tim, spoke about the Trestaurant and his family's more
than 40-year history with it. Tommy's father Ed (the name-
sake) first got into the business when he leasedthe place i-(LEFT)
then a Tastee Freeze franchise from its owner, Hugo King. iCOFFEE DRINKER'S E)E VIEW
King had purchased it from Bob Riles, who in turn had bought 'griddle Ed.
it from a Mr. Owens, owner of an adjacent motel. o f
Ed Sconiers purchased the restaurant in 1964 (his widowed "
still owns the building), and ran it as a Tastee Freeze until
that company's products no longer measured up to his stan-
dards of quality. "With Dad, it was always about the quality," I
says Tommy. Ed broke with Tastee Freeze, and went out onb
his own with Ed's Restaurant. Ed's currently offers break-dr
fast, lunch and dinner,dassorted ice cream specialties, and their
top selling item, the Pub Burger. Tommy credits his brother
Glenn with inventing and naming this signature item. Other. .
permanent favorites are the cole slaw and soups of the day,
both of them made from the recipes of Mrs. Sconiers, Senior.
Ed's menu is fairly lengthy, but this was not always the case.
"There used to be just nine items on the menu," says Tommy.
"Some of the old customers still come in and order by num-
ber." Another change was the size of the place. Originally a
small dining room and carryout service window, the restau-
rant added on a larger dining room, situated parallel to the
original. Ed approved the expansion, but passed away before EDS RESTA .W'RAT OPEN
it was built. Though his father has been gone for eleven years, sI. days a u'ek /u," breot-/t.
Tommy still shows emotion when speaking of him. /ignon thd diLFr.
"Dad taught us never to turn away anyone who was hun-
gry, whether they could pay for it or not. He said you never
knew what a man's circumstances might be." Ed sometimes
carried this philosophy to great lengths., Tommy recounts the------
story of his father and a group of five men who burglarized
the restaurant for food. Ed not only didn't oress charges, he
fed the men and bought them bus tickets to return home to a-
Mexico. "People told Dad that if the word got out, anyone pass-
ing through here in need of a way home would just break into -r
Ed's." So far, this has not been a problem, and it has not
stopped Tommy and Tim from carrying on in their father's
generous footsteps. ar
Outside Ed's Restaurant sits Smokey, a regular customer
who drinks coffee and offers his own opinion. "I've come here I "
hfor years," he says, "and I never seen anyone turned away."
He also comments on the need for a speed limit sign on the s "LEFT)
highway outside the restaurant. Smokey is only one of a host eSODA FOUNTAIN SOURCE

a lot of places like Bonifay and Florala," says Tommy, "and "
We still get customers from there."
Every Christmas, the Sconiers get cards from customers,
including a woman from Birmingham whose car was dam-
aged in an accident in DeFuniak. The family gave her a ride
to Crestview, and she never forgot it. "You could tell she wasn't
used to that," says Tommy.
As four o'clock comes and goes, diners start to trickle into
the restaurant. Tommy observes that certain customers have "er."-
their "regular" dining times. Cooking and food prep is done rdd
partly in the kitchen and partly in view of the customers. Ice
cream creations are made and dispensed from the soda foun- :'" '" *'

ployees, many of them family, man the griddle and turn out ,
breakfast from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m., followed immediately by
lunch and dinner up to 9 p.m. Either Tommy or Tim is always
present, and Tommy's son Eric serves as daytime manager.
For the time being, no major plans for expansion or menu
changes are contemplated, although Tommy says "we need RGT
more parking space." TOM RIGHT O IERS
Tommy returns to the griddle, checking on the food and TADSOMM SCOER'S '
greeting customers. The early dinner rush has begun. "We're IW D- tE'
blessed," he concludes. "DeFuniak folks keep us alive." gridle-. I []. ..

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JANUARY 20, 2005


Girl Scout cookie sale underway


FIVE OF THE TOP TEN best selling cookies in America are Girl Scout cookies.


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.

Saul seeks the donkeys


THE LONG-TERM CARE OMBUDSMAN COUNCIL is
a group of concerned citizens whose goal is to improve the
quality of life for people who live in long-term care facilities
such as nursing homes, assisted living facilities, adult fam-
ily care homes and skilled nursing units in area hospitals.
An Ombudsman is a specially trained and certified volun-
teer who has been appointed by the governor and given au-
thority under Florida law to investigate and resolve com-
plaints made by, or on behalf of, long term care facility resi-
dents.
The Northwest Florida Long-Term Care Ombudsman
Council serves residents in four counties: Escambia, Santa
Rosa, Okaloosa and Walton. The ombudsman's job is to pro-
tect the rights of residents, assure that each complaint is
investigated by visiting each facility to evaluate conditions
and conduct annual inspections.
Qualified and caring volunteers are needed to serve all
four counties. For additional information regarding the
Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program or information on
the council, contact the coordinator at (850) 595-8013 or 1-
888-831-0404.


Now there was a man of
Benjamin, whose name was
Kish, the son ofAbiel, the son
of Zeror, the son of
Bechorath, the son ofAphiah,
a Benjamite, a mighty man
of power. And he had a son,
whose name was Saul, a
choice young man, and a
goodly: and there was not
among the children of Israel
a,goodlier person than he:
from his shoulders and up-
ward he was higher than any
of the people.
And the asses of Kish
Saul's father were lost. And
Kish said to Saul his son,
Take now one of the servants
with thee, and arise, go seek
the asses. And he passed
through mount Ephraim,
and passed through the land
of Shalisha, but they found


them not: then they passed
through the land of Shalim,
and there they were not: and
he passed through the land
of the Benjamites, but they
found them not. And when
they were come to the land
of Zuph, Saul said to his ser-
vant that was with him,
Come, and let us return; lest
my father leave caring for the
asses, and take thought for
us. And he said unto him,
Behold now, there is in this
city a man of God, and he is
an honorable man; all that he
saith cometh surely to pass:
now let us go thither;
peradventure he can shew us
our way that we should go.
Then said Saul to his ser-
vant, But, behold, if we go,
what shall we bring the man?
For the bread is spent in our


vessels, and there is not a
present to bring to the man
of God: what have we? And
the servant answered Saul
again, and said, Behold, I
have here at hand the fourth
part of a shekel of silver: that
will I give to the man of God,
to tell us our way.
(Beforetime in Israel, when
a man went to enquire of
God, thus he spake, Come,
and let us go to the seer: for
he that is now called a
Prophet was beforetime
called a Seer.) Then said Saul
to his servant, Well said;
come, let us go. So they went
unto the city where the man
of God was..
And as they went up the
hill to the city, they found
young maidens going out to
draw water, and said unto


them, Is the seer here? And
the answered them, and said,
He is; behold he is before you:
make haste now, for he came
to day to the city; for there is
a sacrifice of the people to day
in the high place: As soon as
ye be come into the city, ye
shall straightway find him,
before he go up to the high
place to eat: for the people
will not eat until he come, be-
cause he doth bless the sac-
rifice; and afterwards they
eat, that be bidden. Now
therefore get you up; for
about this time ye shall find
him. And they went up into
the city: and when they were
come into the city, behold,
Samuel came out against
them, for to go up to the high
place.
from 1 Samuel 9

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 bywhat you're wearing or what 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

WE UNDERSTAND.


We know that not everybody feels

On being


perfect in Christ

We are told in Colossians 1:28 that we are to be presented
"perfect in Christ Jesus." Yet we feel in our own souls that
perfection is not in us. Every tear that trickles from our
eyes, weeps "imperfection;" every sigh which breaks from
our hearts, cries "imperfection;" every harsh word which
proceeds from our lips, mutters "imperfection."
We have too often had a view of our own hearts than to
dream of a moment of perfection in ourselves. But amid this
sad consciousness of imperfection, here is comfort for us-
we are perfect in Christ Jesus. In God's sight you are "com-
plete in Him;" even now you are "accepted in the beloved."
Yet there is a second perfection which is yet to be realized.
It is sure to all of God's people. Is it not delightful to look
forward to the time when every stain of sin will be removed
from the believer? Then we shall be presented faultless be-
fore the throne, without spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing.
Our Lord's church will then be so pure, that not even the eye
of Omniscience will see a spot or blemish on it. It will be
holy and glorious with the Savior's garments on.
Then we shall know, and taste, and feel the happiness of
this vast but short sentence, "Complete in Christ." Not un-
til then shall we fully comprehend the heights and depths of
the salvation of Jesus.
Does not our hearts leap for joy at the thought of it? Crim-
son as we are, we shall be cleansed one day. Filthy as we
are, we shall be clean. Oh, it is a marvelous salvation that
takes a worm and transforms that one into a saint. It is the
blessed truth of perfection in Christ.

Giving
Like God

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

We know what real love is because Christ gave up his
life for us. And so we also ought to give up our lives for
our Christian brothers and sisters. But if anyone has
enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in
need and refuses to help, how can God's love be in that
person? 1 John 3:16-17 (NLT)
I met Todd and Rhonda several years ago. It was
through a need that I experienced in my family. Light-
ning had zapped our television, and when I arrived home
with my daughter Hope, we were delighted to see in our
small living room floor a new television that said simply,
"We love you, from the Pittman's." They have since
joined our Church family, and we have been blessed many
times, with their fellowship, and worship together. The
devil does not like to see families share out of their abun-
dance.
The norm in society is get and forget the church, pas-
tor, or those who are in need. When one is generous to-
ward God's work, and servants the devil gets mad and
tries to stop the flow of God's blessing.
We need to uphold the givers in our churches, because
this pattern is more like the heart of God than any other
attribute.
What is it that you are sacrificing today for other
people?
Can you think through the last week and pick out one
or two things that you could honestly say demonstrated
sacrificial love?
The Bible teaches that true love is much more than
something we say,.it is something that we do that makes
our love evident to all.
If I truly love my spouse, I will be willing to lay down
my life for her, not just be inconvenienced for her when
it becomes necessary.
The same is true for those that are my brothers and
sisters in the family of God.


The only gift that demonstrates godly love is the gift
of our life given for another.
Jesus is the perfect example of this.
He gave all He had to give, even literally offering His
own life on the cross so that we would be able to share in
His love.
Surely by seeing His example we learn what it means
to give like God has given to us.
We could never claim to love and at the same time
withhold from those who are in need, let alone refuse to
lay down our life for another. Who can I love today?
What sacrifice am I willing to make?
If I truly love like God loves, I'll find a way to make it
happen.
PRAYER THOUGHT: Lord, teach me to love like You,
no reservations, no regrets, and no hesitation.

South Walton edges Freeport 39-38


By PATRICK CASEY
Ashlee Stephens scored 13
points including a critical
free throw in the final- sec-
onds as South Walton de-
feated Freeport for the sec-
ond time this season, 39-38.
The win came despite
Freeport's Abby Howell
banking in a half-court 3-
pointer at the buzzer to cut
the final margin of victory to
one point.
Freeport stayed in the
game by hitting seven 3-
pointers in the contest as
Howell led the way with 12
points for the Bulldogs. Free-


port could not make up for
poor rebounding, however, as
South Walton controlled the
boards by pulling down 12
more rebounds in the contest.
The game was a close one
from the outset as the Bull-
dogs owned a 22-21 lead at
the half only to watch South
Walton take a 31-29 lead into
the final quarter. Forward
Samantha Jones fouled out of
the contest in the final period
for the Seahawks but her
teammates continued the
solid rebounding pace with-
out her for the remainder of
the game.


Ashlee Stephens continued
her solid play by hitting 6-of-
11 shots from the floor while
grabbing 13 rebounds in the
contest. Stephens is the lead-
ing scorer in the county in
girls basketball as she is av-
eraging 15 points per game.

Braves repel Crusaders 67-50


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves had
four starters score in double
figures as they defeated dis-
trict rival Pensacola Catho-
lic 67-50 on Friday night.
The win elevated Walton's
record to 12-6 on the season
and 3-2 in District 1, Class
3A.
Dustin Cosson led the way
for the Braves with 19 points


in the contest while Ashton
Campbell had 18. Darryl
McGhee added 13 points and
J Leonard scored 12 to pace
.the Walton offense.
Walton went on an 18-12
run in the third quarter to
take a seven point lead into
the final frame. The Braves
furthered their cause with a
22-point quarter as their
pressure defense forced 16


second-half turnovers.
The Crusaders had only
one player in double figures
as Andrew Edwards scored
22 points in the contest,
keeping Catholic close with
six 3-pointers in the game.

The two teams will meet
again on Tuesday, January
25, when the Braves will
travel to Pensacola Catholic.

MLB cracks down on steroid use


.


By CHUCK HINSON
All last week, the stories
were brewing and developing
as baseball commissioner
Bud Selig stood before a
packed press room in
Scottsdale, AZ, and made the
announcement. The zero-tol-
erance in baseball is now a
fact.
With some of the game's
biggest stars under suspicion
and lawmakers demanding
action, Major League base-
ball adopted a tougher ster-
oid-testing program that will
have serious repercussions if
an athlete tests positive.
Penalties include a suspen-
sion for first-time offenders
for 10 days and randomly
testing players year-round.
The announcement and
agreement was hailed by
baseball management teams
and its union as a huge step
forward. But, with any type
of decision, there are those
who have criticized the an-
nouncement by saying that
the penalties are still not as
strict as those on Olympic
athletes that are tested and
found positive for steroid use.
A first positive test would
suspend players for 10 days,
a second positive test would
suspend players for 30 days,
a third positive test would


suspend players for 60 days
and a fourth positive test
would suspend the player for
one year. All of the suspen-
sions would come with no
pay.
In the past, only after a
fifth positive test, would the
athlete be suspended for one
year.' All previous positive
testing resulted in treatment
and discipline by the team.
Many athletes have testi-
fied against many of the
makers of steroids and have
sided with the commission on
the means of legal action
taken against companies
that produce the drugs.
Each season, a mandatory
drug test will be given to a
player that is a member of an
MLB team. Players will be
randomly selected for addi-
tional tests, with no limit on
the number, and for the first
time will be subject to ran-
dom tests during the offsea-
son. ,
Besides steroids, many
diuretics and steroid precur-
sors were added to the
banned list. Despite many in
the medical field saying that
if a person is found to be posi-
tive when they first test, they
will be targeted more often
for the random test.
That is a situation that the


PDL defeats Holmes County 60-41


By PATRICK CASEY
Catherine Tinsley scored
20 points and Maggie Wright
added 13 as the Ponce de
Leon Pirates recorded their
twelfth win of the season in
Bonifay. PDL's 60-41 victory
was their third of the season
against the Bluedevils. The
Pirates posted a pair of wins
in December over Holmes


*County 41-31 and 49-37.
Six 3-pointers helped the
Pirates to the win as Tinsley
and Wright connected for
three apiece in the game.
Mary Howes added 10 points
for the Pirates on the interior
and Lacey Griffin scored
eight points in the contest
with a 6-for-6.performance at
the free throw line.


Nicole Barbee was the only
Bluedevil in double figures as
she tallied 12 points for the
host team.

The two teams could meet
again in the district tourna-
ment in February as Holmes
County is slated to host the
event for District 2, Class 2A
girls basketball competition.

Planning Commission


plans lower density


A NEW RESIDENTIAL
subdivision might be coming
to the site of the Boys and
Girls Club on the west end of
CR-30A in south Walton. The
controversial athletic facility,
which included 70-foot tall
stadium lights objected to by
many neighbors, has been
stalled in court for nearly, a
year, after lawsuits were filed
by a group of local citizens
and the State of Florida.


Plans include a swimming pool


A new plan for Boys and Girls Club site


By TIANA LARSEN
A conventional single-fam-
ily residential subdivision
might replace the controver-
sial South Walton Athletic
Facility.
Property owners within
300 feet of the Boys and Girls
Club on the west end of CR-
30A have received letters no-
tifying them that a commu-
nity meeting concerning the
22-acre site across from Fla-
mingo Village and adjacent
to Topsail State Preserve will
be held on Jan. 25 at 5 p.m.
at the Coastal Branch Li-
brary.
The letter states that C.D.
Jones is proposing to develop


a new subdivision, "The
Boardwalk at CR-30A," on
"Section 32, Township 2
South, Range 20 West" in
Walton County.
A site plan attached to the
letter shows what appears to
be a conventional,, single-
family residential project on
the entire site except for a
1.73-acre commercial area on
the southeast corner abut-
ting CR-30A.
Don Brock of Regional En-
gineering, whose firm sent
the letters, could not provide
any further information con-
cerning the apparent change
of plans for what was one of
the most disputed and divi-


sive projects in recent
memory. Brock said his client
would prefer to answer ques-
tions at the community meet-
ing.
As of Friday, Jan. 14, no
documents transferring own-
ership of the site from the
Boys and Girls Club of the
Emerald Coast could be lo-
cated ii the Walton County
public records.
A community meeting is a
condition of any development
located on an infill parcel,
explained county planning
staff. There is no sign placed
on the property, which Brock
said was not required. In ad-
dition to the letters, a notice


was placed in the Daily
News, he said.
The South Walton Athletic
Facility, as approved last
year, would consist of a total
of 75,719 square feet of rec-
reational facility. Plans in-
clude a swimming pool,
climbing wall, indoor run-
ning track, gymnasium, a
private club, a concession
stand and four regulation
size ball fields, two baseball
and two soccer, with
restrooms and a public ad-
dress system. Three of the
fields include stadium lights
on 70-foot poles. Parking is
See PLAN Pg 3C


By TIANA LARSEN
The Walton County Plan-
ning Commission took the
first step towards possible
future lower density in por-
tions of south Walton by ap-
proving the first reading of a
new ordinance adding addi-
tional "infill" land use catego-
ries to the land development
code.
Presently the infill desig-
nation allows up to eight
units per acre, where public
water and sewer are avail-'
able. This land use category
has been, according to plan-
ning staff, "problematic."
Quite a few land use
amendments have been pro-
posed by developers and ap-
proved in recent years chang-
ing land from the conserva-
tion residential category, a
low density category, to infill.
In several cases, neighbors
have objected, but the county
does not have an intermedi-
ate density category for these
projects.
Amendments have been
approved where both
citizens's and some members
of the planning commission
thought that something more
than, conservation
residential's low density, but


less than eight units per acre,
would have been a more ap-
propriate change.
If the Board of County
Commission (BCC) adopts
the ordinance at their land
use hearing on Feb. 1, there
will be infill subcategories
allowing either two, four, six
or eight dwelling units per
acre.
The purpose of the sub-cat-
egories is "to further assure
compatibility with abutting
areas." The ordinance will
only apply to future amend-
ments applied for; areas cur-
rently designated as infill
will remain at eight units per
acre.
The ordinance states:
"When applying these infill
sub-categories, the county
will consider environmental
suitability, infrastructure
availability, and the intensity
of non-residential develop-
ment and the density of resi-
dential development within a
quarter-mile radius of pro-
posed amendments. Maxi-
mum allowable densities will
be determined based on a rec-
ommendation by the plan-
ning commission and ap-

Is Walton County 'Keeping it Green'?

Protection of native vegetation highlighted


By DOTTY NIST
Is native vegetation being
preserved per code on devel-
opment sites?
Some residents are con-
cerned that preservation re-
quirements are not being fol-
lowed, and the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) ap-
pears to share those con-
cerns,
Commissioner Cindy


Meadows, who represents
District 5, noted that this is
a recurrent issue in her dis-
trict, generating many com-
plaints to code enforcement
by the public.
In Meadows' opinion, one
problem is the clack of clar-
ity in the Walton County
Land Development Code lan-
guage dealing with vegeta-
tive preservation.
Meadows explained that


the code uses the word "re-
tain" in connection with na-
tive vegetation. "It's difficult
to determine what that
means," she said. She pro-
posed the addition of some
new language to the code to
enhance clarity and to "put
teeth" into requirements for
vegetative preservation.
Meadows believes the
clarification would benefit
Walton County Code En-


forcement and Walton
County Planning Depart-
ment in connection with their
efforts to insure protection of
native vegetation.
Under the proposed lan-
guage, during construction
activity vegetation mandated
for protection would have to
be marked as "no distur-
bance" areas with fencing

Bayou horse

trail to open

in Spring

By DOTTY NIST
Horses and riders will soon
have new trails to explore in
the Point Washington State
Forest.
The Bayou Loop Horse
Trail. is now under construc-
tion off Bay Drive, north of
U.S. 98.
Tom Beitzel, forestry su-
pervisor for the 15,000-acre'
Point Washington State For-
est, commented that the new
trail is being provided in re-
sponse to interest expressed
by many area riding enthu-
siasts. He said the state Di-
vision of Forestry tries to ca-
ter to the public's various rec-
reation needs in planning fa-
cilities.
"It's part of our recreation
plan for the forest," he said
of the equestian trails.
Forestry already provides
one horse trail in the area,
the Old Sawmill Trail in Pine
Log State Forest near Ebro.
The Bayou Loop Horse
Trail will consist of two loops,
one about five miles long and
the other about eight miles
long. There will be a parking

lot large enough to accommo-
date ten vehicles with horse
trailers. Also at the entrance
to 'the trail on the east side
of Bay Drive will be a picnic
pavilion and restroom, plus
a well pump that will furnish
water for the horses.
Beitzel said there is a rea-'
son for separating uses
rather than combining horse
riding with trail hiking and
bicycling. Soil conditions in


the area combined with horse
hoof impact result in a trail
surface that is too soft for bi-
cyclists and hikers, he ex-
plained. He said forestry is
therefore separating riding
trails from pedestrian/bicycle
trails in south Walton by put-
ting horse trails north of U.S.
98 and hiking and bicycle
trails south of the highway.

Regional Utilities plans to provide affordable housing


By TIANA LARSEN

manager of Regional Utili-
ties, made a short informa-
tional presentation to the

sioners (BCC) on Jan. 11.
Wilson's plans to provide

county legal and planning
staff to move forward.
"It is definitely needed. We
should get on with it as soon
as possible," thought Com-
missioner Scott Brannon.
Wilson did not give many
details, as the plans right


now are conceptual. How-
ever, he did say that he an-
ticipates being able to pro-
vide about 300 lots that could
sell in the $30,000-35,000
range, including water and
sewer taps.
In the future, it might be
possible to provide as many
as 1,200 homes and possibly
apartments, he said.

Only one of four projects on
the Jan. 13 planning commis-
sion agenda received a rec-
ommendation for approval
and was sent on to the Board
of County Commissioners for
final approval.
Two other projects were
continued for a month, due to
concerns over road standards
and maintenance, storm-
water treatment, utilities
easements, setbacks and
right-of-ways.
A conceptual plan for a
project known as Serenity
Planned Unit Development
was sent back to the draw-
ing board in spite of planning
staffs recommendation for
approval. The conceptual
plan consists of 87 single-
family residential lots on
about 12 acres at the north
end of Woodward Drive in
Dune Allen.
The developer proposed to
pave Woodward to the site,
but some of the commission-
ers thought the available
easement, which is 33-feet,
was too small to accommo-
date drainage and utilities.
Concerns were also raised
over maintenance of the
road, which would have a
paved surface smaller than
what is required for the
county to take over the road.
Commissioner Tom Patton
also did not like the proposed
stormwater treatment for the
individual lots, which was
identified on the plan as lo-
cated under the future
homes. Although the engi-
neer said that might not be
the final plan, commissioners
remained unsatisfied.

Ficarra, a local builder. How-
ever, Ficarra would also like
to see it applied to existing
infill parcels. "There is a lot
of land currently labeled
infill that should not be," he
thought.
The county's comprehen-
sive plan says: "Infill devel-
opment generally consists of


Reduced setbacks were
also included in the plan,
which may be allowed when
it is a "planned unit develop-
ment," or PUD. A PUD re-
ceives approval of a concep-
tual plan, and then details
are reviewed by the planning
staff at a later time. Once
conceptual approval is
granted, there are no more
public hearings.
"I think this is a conven-
tional subdivision, not a
PUD," remarked Patton, who
also thought that with re-
duced setbacks and a narrow
road that there would not be
room to park cars without
having them stick out into
the street.
Coastal Village Subdivi-
sion, a 38-lot single-family
subdivision on five acres on
Thompson Road in Santa
Rosa Beach, failed to move
forward as well. This project
also included under-the-
house stormwater retention
and an undersized road.
In addition, a neighbor
stated that the sign advising
of the time and place of the
public hearing had been in-
correctly placed until Jan. 3,
which fell short of the 14 days
notice required by code.
The remaining project on
the agenda, Mack Bayou
homes, a 108-lot subdivision
north and east of Mack
Bayou Road, was not heard
at all due to notification is-
sues. Along with Serenity
PUD and Coastal Village, it
was continued to the Feb.10
planning commission meet-
ing, set for 5 p.m. at the

room.

and the posting of signage.
Failure to do so would re-
sult in the developer being
fined five times the develop-
ment fee plus a requirement
to replace any of the pro-
tected vegetation with native
plants.
The language further
specifies that, after construc-
tion, that vegetation must be
"preserved, protected, and
maintained" by an owners'
association.
The language does not ap-
ply to single-family lots, just
residential subdivisions or
commercial developments.

District 1 Commissioner
Scott Brannon clarified that
Meadows's proposal would
not put any additional re-
quirements in place for pres-
ervation of native plants.
"This is just identifying
them on the site," he noted.

Richard Fowlkes of Blue
Mountain Beach observed
that county code sets differ-
ent preservation standards
for the various types of veg-
etative communities. His
concern was that he had been
told that no one on county
staff had the expertise to
identify the different plant
communities.

FROM IC


Brannon responded, "We
just hired an environmental
planner."
Fowlkes was also dismayed
that, contrary to code re-
quirements, the county com-
mission had apparently ap-
proved the removal of vegeta-
tive buffers along CR-30A for
the construction of bike paths
and roads for the Alys Beach
development, now in
progress on the east end.
"It's fast going away and I
think it's very important to
the community," he said of
the native plant buffer area
bordering CR-30-A.
Anita Page advocated ap-
plying the conditions of
Meadows's proposal to veg-
etative preservation require-
ments in the Walton County
Comprehensive Plan apply-
ing to a 20-foot setback on the
CR-30A Scenic Corridor. Ac-
cording to the plan, these
preservation requirements
apply in all land use classifi-
cations with the exception of
mixed use centers.
Mike Lane of Walton
County Planning commented
that he believed the setback
had been reduced to ten feet
in the recently submitted tex-
tual large scale amendment
to the comp plan. He told the
commissioners that he would


verify that.
Bob Dobes emphasized the
importance of making sure
that plants are properly wa-
tered when developers are
,required to replace vegeta-
tion that has been removed
during construction activity.
The language proposed by


Meadows will be scheduled
for official public hearings
before the planning commis-
sion and county commission.
If approved, it will be incor-
porated into the land devel-
opment code.

THIS SCRUB OAK/sand pine area along C30-A is one of
several native plant communities for which some protection
is required when development takes place.

Commission office expanding


The county has grown and
so has the job of being a
county commissioner. Each
commissioner has a district
office with an assistant to
help them with the day to day
activities of running such an
office to better serve the pub-
lic. For the past two admin-
istrations, District Five has
had two assistants because of
the rapid growth in that area.
Assisting Commissioner
Scott Brannon is Jessica
Bucci. Jessica graduated
from Freeport High School in
1998 and lives in Bruce.
Commissioner Brannon's of-
fice is located in the south
Walton Annex and can be
reached at 622-3081.

Community meeting for

Scenic Gulf Drive slated


The Walton County Board
of Commissioners approved a
proposal for engineering,
planning and surveying
along the Scenic Gulf Drive
right of way on Feb. 24, 2004.
Scenic Gulf Drive follows
the beach south of the
present U.S. 98 Emerald
Coast Parkway. Develop-
ment along this road has
come in spurts at various
times over the past fifty
years. This has resulted in
areas where traffic is im-
peded, parking is difficult,


and crossing the road a chal-
lenge for pedestrians trying
to reach the beach.
The community meeting
is scheduled for Thursday,
Jan. 27,, at 6 p.m. at the
Faith Assembly Church lo-
cated at 306 S. Geronimo
Street in Miramar Beach.
Homeowners, business
owners, and condominium
associations in the affected
area are encouraged to par-
ticipate in this project to en-
hance safety and convenience
for residents and visitors.

Tourism goals and accomplishments reviewed


By DOTTY NIST
With the goal of fostering
'co muLnicat ion between
county government and Wal-
ton County's tourism council,
the council hosted a special
presentation for the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) oni
Jan. 12.
Present were County Com-
mission Chairman Ken
Pridgen, county commission-
ers Ro Cuchens, Scott
Brannon, and Cindy Mead-
ows, South Walton Tourist
Development Council (TDC)
Chairman Maurice Gilbert,
TDC members John Gillis,
Ken Gifford, Joann Saucier,
Donna Bauer, and Jeanne
Dailey, TDC staff members,
Ronnie Bell, and Shirl Will-
iams of county administra-
tion, and media representa-
tives.
TDC Executive Director
Kriss Titus was the lead pre-
senter. Titus summarized the
organization's accomplish-
ments, particularly focusing
on those of the past year, and
shared the organization's
goals for the future.
Titus told the commission-
ers that one of her first goals
on coming aboard in 1999
-was to promote year-round
tourism.
"There used to be only tour-
ism in the summer," she re-
called, explaining that spring
tourism was next to develop
on the Beaches of South Wal-
ton, followed by fall tourism,
stimulated by the TDC-spon-
sored Autumn Tides shoulder
season festival of events.
Winter is the season for
snowbirds and other long-
term visitors, Titus noted.
"We're a very unique area,"
Titus enthused, making ref-
erence to the 50-foot height
limit for construction south of
the bay. "This is very impor-
tant to us," she emphasized.
Travel writers she has con-
tact with are very impressed
with the limit and at the ab-
sence of "sun shaders," their
term for high rises, Titus ex-
plained.
The large tracts of state-
owned land in parks and
preservation in Walton
County, plus the abundance
of natural water bodies, have
presented many opportuni-
ties for offering nature-based
experiences for visitors, Titus
continued. A major goal of the
TDC has been to "preserve,


protect and enhance" the
area's biggest attraction, the
beach, she added.
Part of that goal involves
the cleaning and mainte-
nance of the county's beaches
every day by TDC personnel,
Titus noted.
Another important TI)C
initiative, according to Titus,
is marketing research. With-
out research, you "just guess"
where your visitors are com-
ing from, she explained. Re-
search funded by the council
pinpoints areas where visi-
tors and potential visitors
live right down to their zip
code, what their interests


has hired its own lobbyist to
seek federal funding. -
While an experimental po-
rous groin beach recovery
project is under- way in Inlet
Beach, the large-scale west
end project has been delayed
for a time by legal action,
Titus explained.
She however said that the
TDC is "ready to go" once the
hearings are completed.
The TDC investigated ad-
ditional funding under
Florida Statute 125.0104, the
law authorizing tourist de-
velopment councils and con-
vention and visitor bureaus
to collect a bed tax on tourist


cooperative effort with local
schools that has resulted in
the planting of nearly half a
million sea oats 'bn- the
county's beaches over a
three-year period.
Titus also highlighted the
TDC's state-of-the-art beach
monitoring program that
gathers data on the condition
of the beach before and after
storms arrive.
Bell noted that data from
the monitoring program was
very helpful to FEMA so that
officials could calculate the
amount of sand loss after
Hurricane Ivan and the dol-
lar amount of damages.


DISTRICT 4 COMMISSIONER Ro Cuchens shares a table with TDC members at the
Jan. 12 informational meeting.


are, and how to reach them.
"Research is the founda-
tion of building a good TDC,"
Titus remarked.
The success of the council's
marketing efforts is evi-
denced by two awards this
year, one from a major adver-
tising organization and the
other a public relations
award for still photography,
Titus commented.
One "cent" of the four per-
cent tax on tourist accommo-
dations has been put aside to
fund renourishment of
eroded areas on the beach,
and the council had planned
to borrow an additional $5-7
million for a large-scale
renourishment project on the
west end of the county.
The TDC was also able to
obtain $4.5 million in grant
money for renourishment,
Titus noted. The council has
also lobbied for additional
state and federal
renourishmeAt funding and


accommodations, and last
year began collecting an ad-
ditional fourth "cent" for
funding. The law specifically
designates the use, which
must be either for sports fa-
cility or convention center or
marketing the destination,
Titus commented.
She explained that the
council is using funds from
the fourth cent for the latter,
and specifically for Autumn
Tides "product development,"
a wayfinding "family of
signs," developing the 10-
acre Kellogg property on the
bay as a nature center, and
creating a cultural plan for
Walton County.
Titus was proud of the
TDC's ongoing participation
in the annual Back to Nature
festival with the "Wild Ways"
tour local of nature sites,
with the council's five-year
membership in the Blue
Wave national beach certifi-
cation program, and with a


Titus added that the TDC
has a 20-year beach mainte-
nance plan and a master rec-
reation plan. The latter plan
anticipates the amount of
growth likely to take place in.
the various areas and where
new beach accesses will need
to be built to serve visitors
and the public.
Three beach accesses were
upgraded last year, Titus
said, and the TDC has plans
to build a large access with
extensive boardwalks on Sce-
nic Gulf Drive in the vicinity
of the Whale's Tale eatery
and Seascape condominiums.
In all, the council now
maintains 55 beach accesses,
four of those with picnic pa-
vilions and seven with
restroom facilities, Titus
noted.
The state has plans to four-
lane U.S. 331, and Titus said
this will eliminate access to
the TDC offices and visitor
center. Therefore a new loca-


tion for the building is bepig
investigated. The South Wal-
ton Government and Educa-
'tiofidl `Centi.er"1"'the west
side of U.S. 331 is one possi-
bility.
Six TDC advisory commit-
tees exist, involving 50 vol-
unteer community leaders,
she remarked. Approxi-
mately 1600 volunteers
partipated last year in
-Coastal Clean Up programs
promoted by the TDC, she
added.
Cuchens requested TDC
support in keeping the his-
toric schooner the Governor
Stone in Walton County.
Since being brought into the
county almost two years ago,
the schooner has been unable
to be located in a permanent
home. The nonprofit group
the Friends of'Eden, sponsors
of the boat, have been denied
state permission to dock it at
its intended location, Eden
Gardens State Park. Some
time ago the TDC set aside
funds for a dock for the schoo-
ner on Tucker Bayou adjoin-
ing the park.
Another suggestion by
Cuchens was to see if the
statute providing bed tax
funding for the TDC could be
changed so that bed tax
money could be used for "in-
frastructure need."
Currently uses are con-
fined by law to "tourism pro-
motion," with the exception
of the special "third cent"
which is allowed to be used
for beach renourishment.
Cuchens said he would fa-
vor the use of some tourism
moneys for "some type of
transit" for tourists and for
the creation of a civic center,
which would have the poten-
tial to boost shoulder season
visitation.
The District 4 Commis-
sioner added that he would
encourage the TDC to discuss
with the state setting up
horse riding facilities on
some of the state lands.
"Not everybody wants to
jog or ride a bike," Cuchens
commented.
He also asked the council
to be vigilant' in keeping all
existing boat ramps, particu-
larly in view of the impend-
ing widening of U.S. 331.

An impressive presenta-
tion by Rick Harper on the
impact of tourism on the
county economy followed.


TDC EXECUTIVE DI-
RECTOR Kriss Titus was the
lead presenter at an informa-
tional meeting on tourism
council accomplishments and
goals for the future on Jan. 12.


RICK HARPER of the
Haas Center for Business Re-
search and Economic Devel-
opment reports that tourism
in Walton County currently
generates approximately
$685 million in total sales
each year and supports
10,275 jobs directly or indi-
rectly related to tourism.


Harper is associated with the
Haas Center for Business
Research and Economic De-
velopment.
Following the presenta-
tion, Pridgen urged the TDC
to "look at"' the issues
brought up by Cuchens.
Titus suggested revisiting
the suggestions during the
TDC's strategic planning ses-
sion, which will begin in]
early February. !

DENNIS QUAID


Quaid's overconfident persona worked well
for his role in 'In Good Company'


By Angela Dawson
vnu entertainment report
HOLLYWOOD
Dennis Quaid is charis-
matic and funny. To some, the
actor can also be intimidating
and a bit of a prankster. Just
ask Paul Weitz, who directed
him in the romantic comedy
"In Good Company."
"I remember on the first
day he said to me, "I like
strong directing,' recalls
Weitz, 39. The comment left
Weitz, the co-director of
"About a Boy" and the "Ameri-
can Pie" comedies, feeling a
little off-balance.
Co-star Topher Grace
("That '70s Show") was even
more fearful of Quaid, espe-
cially when Quaid walked off
the set after finishing his
close-ups on the first day,
leaving Grace alone to do his
own close-ups with a stand-
in.
But buth quickly discov-
ereedhow mistaken their first
impressions were.
"You're never sure whether
to take someone at face value
or not, but then I was sur-
prised at how vulnerable he
was," says Weitz about his
star.
As for Grace, he was sim-
J ply being put-on by Quaid,
who eventually returned to
the set and resumed his place
opposite Grace, who redid his
close ups.
When Quaid is told that
i his co-workers find him in-
; timidating, the Houston-born
actor delivers a Texas-size
* belly laugh.
"Everyone does," he says.
Weitz says Quaid's gruff
confidence lent authenticity
to his performance because
his character in the film is
supposed to be fairly self-as-
sured. Quaid's Dan Foreman
is a top sales executive at a
"Sports Illustrated"-type
magazine and a contented
family man with two teenage
daughters. But his happy life
is upended when a multina-
tional conglomerate buys the
magazine and installs 26-
year-old Carter Duryea
(Grace), a whiz kid with no
publishing experience, as his
boss.
With mounting expenses
at home his wife is preg-
nant and his oldest daughter
wants to transfer to an expen-
sive college Foreman has
no choice but to stay put and
cope with his synergy-minded
new boss. His patience is
pushed to the limit, though,
when he discovers that
Carter is secretly dating his
19-year-old daughter
(Scarlett Johansson).
An actor with a more frag-
ile ego may have passed on
the Dan Foreman role. Not
Quaid. He was the first one
cast in the film and the an-
chor for the project's core re-
lationship, according to the
filmmakers.

Dennis Quaid plays a top sales executive, with pressures at
home who finds out his young boss is dating his daughter in
"In Good Company."


10 years younger, says he was
unconcerned about how the
role would affect his image. "I
don't see how it's a risky thing
to play your own age [or] take
a great part with a great di-
rector and great script," he
says.
Quaid began acting in high
school and studied theater at
the University of Houston.
Soon after his arrival in Hol-
lywood in the late 1970s he
landed the plum role of a
working-class tough in
"Breaking Away." He subse-
quently co-starred with his
older brother Randy (already
an established actor) in "The
Long Riders." Other early
roles included "9/30/55,"
"Crazy Mama,"
"Dreamscape," "All Night
Long" and "I Never Promised
You a Rose Garden."
Ruggedly attractive and
athletic, Quaid is a natural
for leading-man roles. He has
excelled in sports-themed
movies. Besides "The Rookie"
and "Any Given Sunday," he
has portrayed a football
player in "Everybody's All
American," a track star in
"Our Winning Season," a cy-
clist in "Breaking Away" and
a singer-turned-boxer in
"Tough Enough."
He has depicted several
historical figures, from astro-


naut Leroy Gordon Cooper in
"The Right Stuff" to Doc
Holliday in "Wyatt Earp" to
Gen. Sam Houston in "The
Alamo." Quaid captured the
essence of legendary rocker
Jerry Lee Lewis in "Great
Balls of Fire!"
Having experienced career
highs and lows over a quar-
ter-century, Quaid takes
nothing for granted. "I feel
really grateful to still be here
doing this thing," he says
modestly. "I don't feel an en-
titlement to the position that
I'm in in life. I feel blessed
that I'm still able to do it. A
lot of people that I started out
with I wonder where they are
now."

A Tale of

Two Stories
'Racing Stripes' switch
s back and forth between
a horse-race story line
and an animal kingdom
story line
By Kirk Honeycutt
vnu entertainment report
The amazing and hilarious
achievement of director Chris
Noonan and his team of ani-
mal trainers and CGI whiz-
zes in the 1995 hit film "Babe"
becomes more apparent every
time someone else attempts
a sequel or knockoff. "Racing
Stripes," directed by Frederik
Du Chau, copies the formula
of a farm animal unaware of
its own identity. But the re-
sults don't come close to du-
plicating 'Noonan's charming
and gentle barnyard fable. At
best, "Racing Stripes" should
play nicely to youngsters with
the. cutoff for enjoyment ex-
tending no further than
nlidteens.

Instead of a pig who be-
lieves he is a sheepdog, "Rac-
ing Stripes" concerns a zebra
who thinks he is a race horse.
Like Babe, the zebra named
Stripes converses with other
animals on the family's Ken-
tucky farm. This is achieved
again with a mix of real ani-
mals, computer technology
and animatronic doubles.
Stripes is named by the
young daughter (Hayden
Panettiere) of a former horse
trainer (Bruce Greenwood)
who rescues the lost foal.
Once the humans retire from
the barn, all the animals be-
gin to chatter up a storm.


from 1-C and unruly. He is a perenni-
ally drunk chain-smoker who
likes to quote obscure pas-
scination sages from T.S. Eliot and Rob-
oneliness ert Frost. He lives in a de-
50-year- crepit shack outside of New
e the title Orleans with another alco-
rn gothic holic who used to be his star
3ong for pupil and is now his drinking
buddy and "biographer."

his Travolta adopted a South-
ern drawl and a limp for the
role; moviegoers may be as-
tonished by his physical
transformation. If Travolta
had any concerns about his
image, he left them at the
door.
"I was relieved," he ex-
plains (now back to his dap-
per self), "because if I hadn't
looked like that, I wouldn't
have bought the character
and neither would the audi-
ence."
DOGG He drew inspiration for his
character from alcoholics he

having never fallen into the
trap of addiction himself. "I've


Hayden Panettiere plays a young girl who wants to ride the
zebra, Stripes (voiced by Frankie Muniz), who is convinced he
can race against horses in "Racing Stripes."


Three years later, the daugh-
ter gets the idea she would
like to ride the zebra, every
bit as much as Stripes would
like to be ridden because he
thinks he can run in races
against horses. But, in a bit
of'unrcorivincir'g melodrama,
Dad won't allow this because
his late wife lost her life af-
ter being thrown from a
horse.
David Schmidt's screen-
play switches back and forth
between the two story lines
of the animal kingdom and
the horse race movie, but the
narratives never really merge
as the story lines never play
off each other. Famous voice
actors do inject a bit of
whimsy into the barnyard
banter, especially Dustin
Hoffman as a cantankerous
Shetland pony, Whoopi
Goldberg as a sagacious goat
and Joe Pantoliano as a Ma-
fioso pelican on the lam from
the big city. Meanwhile,
Frankie Muniz and Mandy
Moore give Stripes and his
filly girlfriend, Sandy, a colt-
ish innocence.


been on the receiving end of
drinkers and alcoholics where
they're wicked to you and
[yelling] at you," he says.
Travolta insisted on mak-
ing himself look as bad as
possible for "Bobby Long." He
even had to convince first-
time director Shainee Gabel
to go as far as he did with the
disheveled look. "It kind of
helped that he's kind of larger
than life, like the character,"
says Gabel.
"The whole mockup was
like the door opening for you
to believe the scenario that
I'm going to tell you," says
Travolta. It was brave, he
admits, but necessary.
The idea of casting
Travolta was the brainchild
of co-star Scarlett Johansson
and her mother, Melanie
Johansson, who served as a
producer and shepherded the
project.
Travolta says working
with Johansson, who plays
his uninvited roommate, was
a treat. "She's a freak of na-
ture," says Travolta, who com-
pares the 20-year-old actress
to sexy screen legends
Marilyn Monroe and Eliza-
beth Taylor. "She is light
years ahead for her age. I
wish that everyone were as
together as she is."
Travolta is also compli-
mentary of Johansson's


The human actors includ-
ing M. Emmet Walsh as a
racetrack junkie do respect-
able work with the stock char-
acters in the "Natioil Vel-
vet" story line, though Wendie
Malick is 6ver'thetop as the
'coldblooded' doyenne of "the
Kentucky racing circuit. Two
well-animated horseflies with
a penchant for breaking into
song and dance, played with
unapologetic zeal by Steve
Harvey and David Spade,
take the film south into poo
humor so beloved by young-
sters. They are not, however,
the only offenders.

Du Chau is better at inte-
grating the racing footage -
which must have been tricky
given that zebras really
aren't racers with the ani-
mation and animatronics.
The CG work allowing the
animals to, mouth dialogue
blends well into the live ac-
tion. David Eggby's cinema-
tography and Wolf Kroeger's
sets make the South African

mother, who has helped guide
her daughter's successful ca-
reer. "I think the two of them
are a great team," he says.
Some are touting
Travolta's performance as a
yet another comeback. The
actor laughs at the sugges-
tion, noting that he has
counted about a dozen or so
"comebacks" in his long ca-
reer.
Speaking with the wisdom
of someone who has had his
share of hits and misses,
Travolta has a theory about
what constitutes a comeback.
"It's an artistic reference," he
explains. "It's not that you
don't exist or you're not do-
ing movies. It's about, did you
do the movie that appealed to
a group of journalists, critics
and an audience that says
you're an artist? It's not about
whether you have been busy
or working or starving.
There's a hidden note that
says, he's keeping up his
chops as an artist."
Whatever you label his
current wave of popularity,
Travolta is clearly enjoying
himself. He next stars in "Be
Cool," the long-awaited se-
quel to the smash comedy
"Get Shorty." He has also
signed to star in an indepen-
dent film called "Lonely
Hearts," opposite James
Gandolfini.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JANUARY 20, 2005


MEMBERS OF THE
Seagrove Garden Club held
their January meeting at
Embassy Suites where pro-
gram speaker was Wildlife
Biologist Jim Moyers of St.
Joe Timberland Co. The
club now boasts 61
members.


THE SEAGROVE GARDEN CLUB was another stop for
the Philharmonic Society's conductor, David Ott, during a
promotional tour featuring lectures and performances in the
area. Jackie Le Tang, garden club president, introduced
him to the membership.


DAVID OTT, conductor of The Philharmonic Society of
NW Florida, is a familiar face at south Walton clubs and
organizations. He is pictured here prior to his lecture at
Coastal Branch Library.


SEAGROVE GARDEN CLUB program chair, Jan Stanko,
thanks January speaker Wildlife Biologist Jim Moyers for
his program on Florida's endangered & threatened wildlife
species.


Philharmonic's David
Ott--On January 4, I was
present at the Magnolia Ball-
room for the gratis premiere
of "Gateway to the World," a
celebration of Florida, the
new work composed by Dr.
David Ott, conductor of the
Philharmonic Society of
Northwest Florida.
The room was packed. "We
had 1,200...a full house," said
a delighted Deborah Miller,
executive director of the So-
ciety. "We talked with many
(concert -goers) and they
asked how they could support
us. It was very successful."
The award-winning con-
ductor, who teaches music
appreciation courses to locals
and snowbirds, is also well-
known along the civic club
circuit. I have been to pro-
grams at Coastal Branch Li-
brary, the Seagrove Garden

We have


all heard


. about the tragedies
caused from the re-
cent tsunami. Lo-
cally, there is one
group of business
owners and indi-
viduals, that will
celebrate Mardi
Gras while raising
money, for the relief
fund.

The more than 150,000
victims and millions that
were left homeless, this past
Christmas season due to the
tsunami disaster, have been
trying to rebuild and regain a
sense of livelihood in that
devastated area. A group of
local businesses and indi-
viduals have decided to raise
money for them through a
celebration and fundraiser.
The Krewe of 30A an-
nounces their plans for the
2005 Krewe of 30A Mardi
J Gras Ball to be held at the
Seabar, located on Hwy. 331


just over the Clyde Wells
Bridge. The proceeds raised
this year will benefit and
build homes for victims of the
tsunami that struck three
weeks ago.
Krewe of 30A members
include Blue Lupine Con-
sulting, H&M Tent and
Party Rentals, Yipi Image
Development, MC Photo,
Hilltop Productions, The
Seabar, and Luaer, Inc., once
again will have an evening of
food, live music, an auction, a
parade of lavish gowns, cos-
tumes and party favors. The
attire is formal or costume.
Last year, the first Mardi.
Gras ball was held across the
street at Cafe 331 and more
than 200 attended the inau-
gural event and helped raise
nearly $4,000 for Habitat for
Humanity new home con-
struction. This year, organiz-
ers are expecting the same
response with even more
money being raised by corpo-
rate and private sponsors
and donations.
*The Krewe of 30A has also
sponsored the .30A for Arts
Art Festival at Rosemary
Beach in October of 2003 and
raised nearly $5,000 for the
Walton County Habitat for
Humanity. This year, their


attention and proceeds will
benefit a much greater popu-
lation on a much wider scale.
The Intertnational Tsu-
nami Relief Fund has said
that for $100, a family dwell-
ing, or kiosk-style dwelling
can be built. The low cost of
living and building materials
is the reason the homes cani-
be built for such a minimal
cost.

Saxophonist Jeff Kashiwa

returns to the coast


By CHUCK HINSON
Saxophonist Jeff Kashiwa
will be hosting a series ofjazz
band clinics with local middle
and high schools in Walton
and Okaloosa County. WSBZ
radio will sponsor the clinics
Jan. 28 and 29.
The clinics will be held at
Niceville High School, South
Walton High School and the
Seaside Neighborhood
School. At noon on Jan. 29,
the public is invited to a free
20-minute concert at the
Seaside School with the
clinic's Improv Group and
Walton County Honor Band.
Kashiwa has mesmerized


local audiences appearing at
the Seabreeze Jazz Festival
and at various local shows
featuring the renowned
smooth jazz band, the Rip-
pingtons. After 10 years with
the group, he branched out on
his own in 1999 and has made
a name for himself as a stand-
alone saxophonist.
"As a trumpet player and
band major at the Freeport
High School band, I just
think it's so important for
today's young musicians to
get to meet and learn from
such great talents," said
WSBZ owner Mark Carter.
Carter further mentioned


JEFF KASHIWA
that Kashiwa works well
with children and does such a
great job motivating them to
excel in music.
For more information on
clinic schedule, call WSBZ at
267-3279.


The weekend of smooth
jazz is the largest ticket-
purchasing event in Walton.
The annually sold-out event
has become one of the top
contemporary jazz festivals
in the nation.

Seaside Repertory Theatre


stages reading of


By BRUCE COLLIER
As part of their Escape to
Create 2005 project, the Sea-
side Repertory Theatre and
the Seaside Institute staged
a dramatized reading of
scenes from "Somewhere Be-
tween Heaven and Hell: A
Comedy of Celestial
Proportions," an original
screenplay by Stephen Ingle.
The reading was performed
on Saturday, January 15, at
the Seaside Town Meeting
Hall. Seaside Rep recently
signed a long-term lease for
the hall, the first step in its
plans for a year-round sea-

Kim Turner, David Hopkins,
and Seaside Rep Artistic Di-
rector Craige Hoover. The
presentation consisted of a
-'"'"W''2F series of short scenes involv-
ing the characters of God,
.Jesus, Peter, Adam, Eve, Sa-
tan, and a crew of lawyers,
business people and African
tribesmen.
Stephen Ingle is a Los An-
geles-based screenwriter and
graduate of Birmingham
NaSouthern College.' His
screenplay "Fish in a Barrel"

dependent Video and Film

ceived honors for acting and
directing. A native of Colum-
bia, South Carolina, Ingle
grew up with a Christian fa-
ther and a Jewish mother, a
combination providing fertile
creative ground.
Speaking to the audience
following the reading, Ingle
recalled his childhood. "My
mother is a cross between
Barbara Streisand and Dixie
Carter. She taught at my
high school. My dad is the
head of a college. I grew up,
Jewish in the South. Of
course I went to Hollywood."
While in residence at Sea-
side, Ingle is completing his
latest script, "The Beautiful
People."
The nearly full audience
seemed to enjoy the reading,
which contained more than a
few unorthodox scenes, par-
ticularly one with Adam and
Eve. In Ingle's script, the
original First Family is alive
and living in a condo, and
still experiencing occasional
marital friction. "All the men
in the world, and I had to get
the first," says Eve. Other
scenes involve a courtroom
confrontation between God
and Satan, lawyers arguing
over rights to Purgatory, a
shark attack in a mud
puddle, and an infernal jazz
band.


script

A question and answer ses-
sion followed. Ingle admitted
that the screenplay has never
been filmed, mainly because
he wouldn't want any
changes. He added that
many of his ideas on religion
and mankind found a voice in
the characters. The audience
laughed at Ingle's descrip-
tions of other scenes, as well
as scenes he'd written and
abandoned. As the evening
was about to close, an audi-
ence member begged for an
encore reading of the Adam
and Eve scene. Turner,
Hoover, and Allain obliged
them, to another round of
applause.
Hoover reminded the audi-
ence of Seaside Rep's Emer-
ald Ball in April, as well as
the summer 2005 season,
which begins in May. Hoover
added that this year's Au-
tumn Playwright Festival
will focus on the work of
Tony- arid Pulitzer Prize-win-
ning playwright Edward
Albee. The festival will offer
staged readings, panel dis-
cussions, and a mainstage
production of Albee's classic
drama "Who's Afraid of Vir-
-giniaWoolif?-For more infor-
