Jail relocation a "done deal"


By DOTTY NIST
In an atmosphere of har-
mony and public applause,
Walton County set out on a
new course to relieve dire
overcrowding conditions in
the county jail.
Through a Jan. 25 decision
of the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) The jail is to be moved
from its current downtown
DeFuniak Springs location to
a forty-acre parcel north of
Walton Correctional Institu-
tion, land already under
county ownership.
There, a work camp/dormi-
tory will be constructed, and
many additional sheriff's de-
partment facilities will be
provided.
Two weeks ago the BCC
had voted to suspend ongo-
ing construction on an on-site
expansion of the jail in De-


Walton

County

handicapped

say more

facilities

needed.

BY TIANA LARSEN
"We've been left behind for
15 years in Walton County,"
remarked Don Crim, refer-
ring to facilities mandated by
the Americans with Disabili-
ties Act (ADA.)
Crim, speaking for the
ADA committee, told county
commissioners at their Jan.
25 meeting that the ADA was
established by the Federal
Government in 1990, and
that although Walton County
established an ADA commit-
tee in 1990, there has been
little action.
The rules have changed
since 1990, and there are
many needs to be addressed
through ordinances and ad-
ditions to the comprehensive
plan, Crim explained.
Martha Heller, also an
ADA committee member and
a Blue Mountain Beach resi-
dent, told commissioners
that her late husband was
confined to a wheelchair dur-
ing the last five years of his
life.
She experienced firsthand
the difficulties encountered
by the handicapped, Heller
said.
In particular, she brought
to the board's attention the
lack of handicap accessible
rental homes in south
Walton.
Heller called three large
property management firms,
none of which had an acces-
sible property for rent, she
said.
Heller believes that since
vacation rental houses re-
semble hotels they fall under
the public accommodations
section of the ADA, and she
would like to see new homes
built to accommodate the
handicapped.
"If you start at the plan-
ning stage, it is not that ex-
pensive," she said.
Crim requested a work-
shop to discuss all the issues.
At a suggestion from Com-
missioner Lairy Jones, Crim
will meet first with county di-
vision directors to identify
ADA issues within their di-
visions.


Funiak, plans put in place by
a previous commission that
had long been a source of
public controversy.
The decision was followed
by meetings between Walton
Couny District 1 Commis-
sioner Scott Brannon as com-
mission liaison, Walton
County Sheriff Ralph
Johnson, county personnel,
and representatives of Peter
Brown Construction, Inc.,
contractor for the jail expan-
sion.
The result of those meet-
ings was a set of options and
recommendations which
County Administrator Ron-
nie Bell provided to the com-
missioners at a Jan. 25 spe-
cial meeting.
Bell's presentation incor-
porated various options but.
highlighted those favored by
all parties involved in the dis-


cussions.
"I appreciate all these facts
and data and I think we need
to move forward with this,"
commented District 5 Com-
missioner Cindy Meadows.
Brannon credited county
.staff on "a wonderful job" and
also thanked the sheriff's of-
fice and Peter Brown.
District 4 Commissioner
Ro Cuchens said he was "very
excited to see everyone com-
ing together." He added that
he strongly favors the
planned location for the new
jail because of the "endless
possibilities" for expansion.
The lack of space for expan-
sion had been a major criti-
cism of the on-site jail project.
County Commission Chair-
man Kenneth Pridgen ech-
oed Cuchens' sentiment
when he said he was pleased
to see the county planning


well into the future.
He stressed the need to
anticipate and plan for the
future growth that is surely
coming.
Once the jail is moved, "we
still need to look at what is
coming next," he emphasized.
There was little public com-
ment, but DeFuniak Springs
resident J.B. Hillard, a long-
time critic of an enormous
jail as DeFuniak Springs'
centerpiece, thanked the
commissioners for their move
toward new plans for the fa-
cility.
Hillard said he recently
visited Crestview, a city faced
with its jail being "blocked in"
downtown.
"Fortunately we have an
opportunity now not to be
caught in that situation,"

STATE SENATOR DURELL PEADEN, State Senator Charlie Clary, State Representa-
tive Don Brown and Christ money, representing Representative David Coley meet with
Walton County Citizens to discuss legislative issues.



State legislators


come
By TIANA LARSEN
. State legislators who rep-
resent Walton County in Tal-
lahassee held a legislative
delegation meeting at the
South Walton Annex on Jan.
19.
State Senators Durell
Peaden and Charlie Clary
and State Representatives
Don Brown and David Coley
(Coley, who has been ill, was
represented by an aide, Chris
Money) came to town to host
the meeting, the purpose of
which was to receive input on
local bills members of the
community would like to see
addressed by the Legislature.
During the first part of the
meeting, the legislators
heard from the Glendale Fire
Department, which would
like to establish an indepen-
dent district. A public hear-
ing will be held in the future
for citizens living in the area.
Legislators also heard a re-
quest to name a portion of
Hwy. 90 in the vicinity of the
former Perdue Farms after
the late Henry Koehber, a
pioneering landowner in De-
Funiak Springs and former
owner of the plant. The
Board of County Commis-


to town


sioners (BCC) and the city of
DeFuniak Springs were
asked to send letters of sup-
port for the naming of the
highway.
A few citizens had com-
ments for the delegates about
stormwater problems, the
procedure for forming a char-
ter county, and four-laning
U.S. 331.
The traffic congestion on
331 got a lot of attention dur-
ing the second part of the
meeting, when county com-
missioners and representa-
tives from the cities ,of
Paxton, DeFuniak Springs
and Freeport arrived to
present their "wish list" to
the legislators.
Transportation, taxes,
grants, enterprise zones and
a lack of building inspectors
were problems identified in
the packet prepared for the
legislators by the county's
lobbyist.
"We need 331 four-laned,
and there is nothing in the
forecast for a new bridge,"
said Ronnie Bell, county ad-
ministrator. Bell remarked
that he is "alarmed" by the
lack of plans for a bridge, and
noted that Walton County


currently has the second
longest hurricane evacuation
time in the state.
Bell told the legislators
that the county is looking for
a way to utilize Tourist De-
velopment Council (TDC) bed
tax money for transportation
in the tourist corridors and
for public safety needs.
Florida Statutes currently
limit the use of TDC rev-
enues to "tourism promotion,'
with the exception of the ex-
tra tax earmarked for beach
renourishment. .
The county desires legisla-
tion that would allow TDC
funds to also be used for
"transportation improve-
ments, including but not lim-
ited to, sidewalks, pathways
and bike lanes, beach resto-
ration, artificial reef con-
struction, stormwater man-
agement and land acquisi-
tion."
"We need to build roads
where there are not roads
now, and maintain the exist-
ing roads. Visitors must move
at an acceptable pace," re-
marked Commissioner Larry
Jones.

ALL FIVE WALTON COUNTY COMMISSIONERS, Clerk's office staff, county adminis-
trative staff, the Mayors of Freeport, DeFuniak Springs, and representatives from Paxton
met with state delegation at the South Walton Courthouse Annex to discuss a variety of
issues.


Neighbors call for end

to motorcross track


By DOTTY NIST

Renewed activity (read
noise) at a motocross track in
the Woodlawn area has
neighbors pulling their hair
out.
"It has turned our lives
upside down," said Michael
Downham, who lives in the
residential area in which the
track is located.
Downham and several of
his neighbors brought their
concerns before the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) on
Jan. 25.
No one was present to
speak on behalf of the track.
The track is located in an
area classified as estate resi-
dential.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows observed
that "it's a use that's not sup-
posed to be there" and that
the activity has been going on
for several years.
District 4 Commissioner
Ro Cuchens recalled that
there had been a compromise
agreement regarding the use
between a year and a year
and a half ago. It was, he rec-
ollected, that only family
members of the property
owner were supposed to be
riding on the track. He said


he understood that now 30-
35 people were riding ve-
hicles on the track.
"They've either misunder-
stood or forgotten the agree-
ment," Cuchens said.
New county Code Enforce-
ment Coordinator Kevin
Hargett said that the prop-
erty owner's agreement with
the county had been that only
family members and friends
were to ride on the track. The
date of the agreement was
May 28, 2002, he explained.
Hargett said the activity is
taking place mainly on the
weekends during daytime
hours.
Another resident, who said
she works two jobs, said the
fact that the disturbance to
the neighborhood only hap-
pens on weekends does not
make it acceptable.
"We just need some peace
in our lives," she said, call-
ing for the track activity to
stop right away.
"It started on New Year's
Day and has continued every
weekend since then," she
said.
Hargett said that code en-
forcement recently issued a
notice of violation to the prop-
erty owner. However, it was

County attorney


resigns position


BY TIANA LARSEN
County Attorney Gary
Vorbeck's resignation has
been accepted by Walton
County, announced Gary
Mattison, human resources
director.
. Mattison made the an-
nouncement at the Jan. 25
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) meeting and
asked the board for approval
to start the process of find-
ing a replacement.
Mattison said some of the
publications which will be
used to advertise the position
have a long lead time, so the
process should be started as
soon as possible.
Vorbeck told the BCC he
would remain as county at-
torney for an adequate
amount of time in which a
replacement can be found.
"It's been a pleasure,"
Vorbeck said about his
county service, adding his
thanks to all and remarking


that a lot has been 'accom-
plished towards the goal of
building a legal department
the county can be proud of.
"We still have some work
to do," he added.
Vorbeck's tenure with the
county, which began in July
2001, coincided with an ex-
plosion of growth in south
Walton.
Shortly after coming on
board, he instituted quasi-
judicial hearings for the plan-
ning commission and other
county boards.
Although the quasi-judicial
proceedings are mandated in
the county's comprehensive
plan, the county had not been
following the legal format,
which has evidentiary and
procedural legal rules.
Vorbeck presided over
many lengthy and controver-
sial project hearings, includ-
ing Grayton Grand and the
South Walton Athletic Facil-
ity.

DeFuniak man pleads to ten years in 2003 DUI manslaughter


By BRUCE COLLIER
DeFuniak Springs resident
Byron Bruce Cosson entered
a plea of guilty to two counts
of DUI manslaughter on
January 19 at the Walton
County Courthouse. Appear-
ing before Judge Ronald
Swanson of Santa Rosa
County, Cosson was repre-
sented by attorney Jason
Cobb. Greg Anchors repre-
sented the state of Florida.
Seated in the audience of
the small courtroom were
some eighteen persons, rela-
tives and friends of Cosson
and of the victims. The hear-

ing lasted nearly an hour in
an atmosphere of grief and
tension.
The plea came nearly two
years after the incident,
which occurred on March 11,
2003.
A vehicle driven by Cosson
struck and killed two men,
Willard J. Carroll and his
son, Willard L. Carroll, both
of Freeport. At the time,
Cosson was taking prescrip-
tion medication, and contin-
ues to take medication for an
unspecified mental disorder.
The proposed plea called
for a ten-year prison sentence
on each count, to be served

at a Department of Correc-
tions facility offering treat-
ment for inmates with men-
tal disorders. Under Florida
law, a judge is free to accept
or reject a proffered plea.
Judge Swanson noted that
the proposed ten-year sen-
tence was significantly lower
than the minimum of 242.2
months (more than 20 years)
recommended by Florida sen-
tencing guidelines for per-
sons convicted of this offense.
,The sentencing guidelines
use a point system that takes
into account the offense, the
defendant's criminal record
(if any), and any other rel-
evant facts.
In working out the pro-
posed plea, both state and
defense attorneys acknowl-
edged that their respective
cases were "viable," but that
each ran a risk if the case
were tried by a jury. The state
risked losing or getting a con-
viction on a lesser charge due
to evidentiary complications
concerning the 'exact time
and cause of the alleged "in-
toxication." The defense
risked a "guilty" verdict with
a strong possibility of a much
longer sentence.
"There is no harder case
than this case," said the
judge. "We can only try to
make the most just decision."
Before making his decision,
the judge asked if any one of


the victims' families wished
to be heard on the subject of
the sentence. Several fam-
ily members were sworn in
and spoke, their voices often
inaudible with emotion.
Some tried to speak directly
to Cosson. The judge had to
caution them to direct their
remarks to the court, and to
confine their comments to
the subject of the proposed
sentence. In addition to a
regularly assigned bailiff,
two sheriff's deputies stood
in the courtroom, watching
the audience.

At the'conclusion of testi-
mony, Judge Swanson ob-
served that while all of the
, comments spoke to the effect
of Cosson's act on the fami-
lies, he had heard no one spe-
cifically ask him not to accept
the plea. After a few mo-
ments deliberation, the court
accepted the plea. Cosson
entered a plea of guilty as
charged on two counts of DUI
manslaughter. He received a
ten-year sentence on each
count, which he will serve
concurrently. Cosson's

permanently. His bond will
be forfeited and paid in' equal
parts to the families of the
two victims. Cosson will also
pay court costs.
The court gave Cosson un-
til 5 p.m. that day to report
to the sheriff and begin serv-
inig his sentence. Before ad-
journing, the judge ordered
that the, audience leave
peacably and "with dignity."
Deputies followed the audi-
ence into the parking lot,
where they remained until
Cosson was driven off by his
family.

Senator Peaden

appointed to committee

on medicaid reform


Senate President Tom Lee
appointed Senator Durell
Peaden (R-Crestview) to the
Senate Select Committee on
Medicaid Reform. The pur-
pose of the select committee
is to review the Governor's
Medicaid reform plan recom-
mendations, gather public
testimony from Medicaid re-
cipients, and service provid-
ers and provide recommen-
dations to the Senate for
changes to Florida's Medic-
aid program.
"I look forward to working
with the members of this
committee to identify a long-
term and comprehensive so-
lution for funding the medi-
cal needs of our most vulner-
able citizens," said Senator
Peaden. "The first step is ac-
knowledging that there is
a significant problem with
-the-Medicai4 progriarA, which.,
'is clearly evident b' the enor-'
nous bjlte thai I cdicad d,,
takes out of our state's bud-


get every year."
The Florida Medicaid Pro-
gram has grown at a tremen-
dous pace since its inception
in the state in 1970. Medic-
aid projects are expected to
consume more than half of all
state spending in ten years
if it continues to expand at
the thirteen-percent-per-
year rate it has grown over
the past six years. This
growth has been due to many
factors, including increasing
program complexity, rising
health care costs, and tre-
mendous population growth.
The current system is costly
and inefficient, and reform
and modernization are
needed. By introducing flex-
ibility, competition, innova-
tion, and a renewed focus on
the patient, Medicaid will be
ensured a strong and viable
future fr' Floridians, said
Peaden.


March 1, 2005. Statewide,
relief payments are capped at
$20 million, and the law pro-
vides that individual relief
payments may be reduced by
an equal proportion to main-
tain the total relief paid out
at $20 million.
Approved applicants can
expect payments from the
Florida Department of Rev-
enue in June 2005.
Owners of mobile homes
purchased to replace mobile
homes damaged by a named
tropical system and used as
permanent residence by a
Florida resident may qualify
for reimbursement of state
sales tax paid (6 percent).
Maximum payment is
$1,500.
Applicants for reimburse-
ment of sales tax paid on re-

". -


placement mobile homes
must be filed with the prop-
erty appraiser by May 1.
The relief related to mo-
bile home replacement is
capped at $15 million state-
wide. Individual relief pay-
ments may be reduced by an
equal proportion to maintain
the total relief paid out at $15
million.
Approved applicants can
expect to receive payment
from the Florida Department
of Revenue in July 2005.

Editor's Comment


Good night, Johnny...


By RON KELLEY
As anyone with a television knows, America lost a true
comic genius and the undisputed king of late-night televi-
sion with the death of former Tonight Show host Johnny
Carson.
As always occurs when an entertainment icon passes, the
networks quickly start airing flashback specials and film
clip coverage of the star's life. As I watched these clips taken
from Tonight Show episodes, I could not help but marvel
again at the perfect timing, the flawless delivery and the
deadpan stare that kept America up late, night after night.
Carson's opening monologues were modern versions of Will
Roger's wry and witty observations about the events of the
day, his sketches were wildly funny without being crude and
he got more gems from interviewing guests for 10 minutes
than anyone else could get in an hour.
John William Carson was born October 23, 1925 in Com-
ing, Iowa and grew up in Nebraska. After a stint in the U.S.
Navy, he worked as a magician and took a job in radio, later
moving on to game shows. Sometime after that, Carson be-
came a writer for comedian Red Skelton.
Carson became the host of NBC's The Tonight Show on
October 2, 1962. His co-host was Ed McMahon and his first
guest was Groucho Marx. Carson co-wrote "Johnny's Theme"
song with Paul Anka in 1962. Among his most popular
sketches were "Carnac, the Magnificent," where Carson
played a bumbling magician; "Stump the Band", where stu-
dio audience members asked the band to try to play obscure
songs given only the title and "The Mighty Carson Art Play-
ers," which spoofed news, television shows, movies and com-
mercials.
In 1973, Carson crossed magic swords with popular psy-
chic Uri Geller. Carson, a former stage magician, wanted a
neutral demonstration of Geller's alleged abilities, so, at the
advice of fellow magician James Randi, he gave Geller sev-
eral spoons out of his desk drawer and asked him to bend
them. Geller proved unable to bend those spoons with his

mind. That segment on the Tonight Show has since been
regarded as the beginning of Geller's fall from glory.
Then there was the wedding of Tiny Tim to Miss Vicki on
the show. There were so many stand-out moments that it
would take days of nonstop clips to show them all.
Carson was inducted into the Television Hall of Fame in
1987, won six Emmy Awards, and was awarded the Presi-
dential Medal of Freedom in 1992.
Off stage, Carson was an intensely private man and little
is really known about his personal life beyond his penchant
for marrying beautiful young blondes and divorcing them,
usually at great cost to his own personal fortune.
During this period, he joked on The Tonight Show, "My
producer, Freddy de Cordova, really gave me something I
needed for Christmas. He gave me a gift certificate to the.
Law Offices of Jacoby and Meyers."
He allegedly met his last wife, Alexis Mass, when he saw
her strolling along the beach near his Malibu home holding
an empty wine. glass. He left his house and offered to fill the
glass up for her. They married in 1987.
Carson retired from show business on May 22, 1992 when
he stepped down as host of The Tonight Show. NBC gave
the show to occasional guest host Jay Leno, in spite of prom-
ising.the job to David Letterman in the 1980s. Letterman,
a longtime friend of Carson's, called to ask him what to do
about losing the show. Carson told him to quit NBC and get
his own show. Leno and Letterman were soon competing on
different networks.
A couple of years after leaving the Tonight Show, Carson
made a surprise appearance on Letterman's CBS program
that stopped the show dead. Carson came out to read a joke,
and Letterman let him sit down at his desk. The resulting
ovation lasted so long that Carson never had a chance to
tell the joke.
A few days ago, Carson, 79, who suffered from emphy-
sema, passed away quietly at his Malibu home.
As a Carson fan, I never could make the switch to Jay
Leno and even though I like David Letterman, late-night
television without Johnny Carson is like Gone With The Wind
without Clark Gable, The Twilight Zone without Rod Serling,
rock and roll music without Elvis or the Beatles. Frankly,
I'd just as soon watch another rerun of Law & Order.
Carson defined late-night television, he mastered it and
in the minds of most viewers, very nearly created it. Few
people even' recall the Tonight Show's first host, Jack Parr.
. Johnny Cdrsbn had style and class. H4 could- anefe us
laUgh without today's donstarit'hAtfrgi'6f four-Iet61fe oi-7rd'
and instinctively understood what is and what is not funny.
Neither Leno or Letterman can touch him, nor any of the
other endless daytime or late-night talk show hosts that fill
the airwaves.
Like any other true original, there was only one Johnny
Carson and we'll likely never see another like him. I already
miss him. N
I can't help but wonder if St. Peter took advantage of the
once-in-an-eternity chance to announce Carson's arrival in
heaven by casting open the Pearly Gates and shouting,
"Heeeeeeere's Johnny!"
I hope so.


Editor,
How did we get here?
For the past year, I have read editorials, commentaries
and letters to the editor, that were for and against God,
Christians and Islam.
In these United States, we are given the right to believe
and follow whatever our hearts desire, as long as it doesn't
interfere with anyone else's right to do the same. We are
given this right by both God and country. We have the right
to believe, there is no God, there is a God, there are many
God's and that our God is the only true God.
As humans (not animals), we have two basic choices as to
how we arrived at where we are today. The Big Bang Theory
coupled with Darwin's Theory of Evolution, or, In the begin-
ning God created (brought into existence from nothing
(which man cannot comprehend, since he can't duplicate)
the heavens and the earth.
The Big Band and.Darwin's Theory, would have us be-
lieve that everything you can see with the naked eye, the
most powerful telescope or microscope, had its beginning
with an asteroid, millions of miles long, wide and deep, and
millions of years old, floating in this vastness we call space.
Then oneday for 'no apparent reason it exploded and here
we are. I don't see how.any thinking human with one grain
of common sense, regardless of his education, could believe
that man arrived at this point, from the Big Bang and a
single cell that accidentally appeared one day.
Just stop and look at our own universe, of all the planets
and moons in it, the earth we live on is the only one with
plants, millions of species of plants. Some of these plants
can endure extreme heat or extreme cold and some can en-
dure extreme arid conditions, yet none exist on any of the
other planets. However, they all came from the same aster-
oid.
The Christian Bible gives us a detailed record from the
time God (the Father) the architect and Christ (the Son)
the builder (every house has a builder) began the creation
of what we see today, both on the earth and in the heavens.
Forty inspired men of God, over some 1,600 years, wrote
the Holy Bible as the Holy Spirit guided them. The Bible
was completed some sixty years after Christ died. The Catho-
lic Bible was written some 550 years after Christ, and
Mohammad wrote the Koran, some 600 years after Christ.'
It is obvious after reading both, that they were plagiarized
from the Holy Bible, with additions, deletions and consider-
able spin. The Holy Bible says, the fool had said in his heart,
there is no God and that the fool is right in his own eyes. It
also says to study to show yourself approved, a workman
that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the truth.
The scientific community has been unable to dispose a single
fact form the Bible, yet they continue to try. Now where do
you stand?

For what I feel is the first time in our history, I think the
citizens kudos of Walton County finally have a voice in our
government. Kudos to the county commission for passing
the motion to stop the work on the county jail at its current
location. The majority of Walton County residents do be-
lieve the county as whole would be better served moving
the current jail north of town. I want to encourage the Com-
mission to "stay the present course" to see to it the new jail
comes to fruition at a location that would better serve all
the people.
However, rather than spending thousands of new dollars
on feasibility/impact studies, blue prints, building plans I'd
also like to encourage the new commissioners to get the facts.
Look at the work that has already been done by the Walton
County Taxpayers Association, the Greater DeFuniak
Springs Association and architects previously involved in
similar studies, rather than waste more of our tax dollars.
Overcrowding is a huge problem and a substantial finan-
cial risk to the county as well. There are huge civil rights
issue being ignored in regard to recreation time and medi-
cal care. One complaint to the ACLU or some other such
organization could cost the taxpayers millions in settlement
money. I am not encouraging the sheriff to release danger-
ous criminals or threats back into our community, but it is
well known that there are inmates currently being held in
the jail that pose no threat to the community;that are there
simply because they could. not post bond on simple traffic
violations, did not pay child support obligations or some
other minor infraction. Those individuals pose no flight risk
and could be ROR (released on own recognizance) to help
alleviate overcrowding. The sheriff has an obligation to this
community to do his part to help to ward off potential li-
abilities.
I would also like to encourage the new commissioners to
get all the facts on the current animal control situation and
familiarize themselves with all issues from the past that
have led to the current housing situation in Chipley and
the closing of the now defunct Human Society, including
but not limited to, two audits performed by the county on
the aforementioned closed facility. There are agendas at
work on this issue that are not in the best interest of the
citizens or the animals in this county and we do not need to
create a situation in which the animals would be no better
off than they have been in the past.
Land has been donated to the county for a facility, the
deed to the property has been procured, building blue prints
are duie in from architects in just a few short days and the
county has begun the process to meet DEP requirements
for a new facility to be built on that land. It would be a huge
injustice to the people of this county to lose land that was
donated (at not cost to us) for the soul purpose of building
an animal control facility and later have to purchase more
land because the commissioners did not take the advice of
either the Animal Control Committee (which the commis-
sion formed), who support the recommendation to build on
the site, the Animal Control Authorities who agree we need
to build our own facility, the people who also agree that,
yes, we do need to being the animals back to the county and,
the animals that would suffer under another "turn -key"
type operation.
A "turn- key" operation did not work in the past and it
will not work in the future. The health and well being of the
animals in Walton County are dependant on the commls-'i
orne- -4s ""staythe present course" in regard'to animal con-"
-trol, as well as the jail. Lynda Mri4se.

For. the past four years I have been collecting personal
experiences from World War II enlisted sailors for a trilogy
of books. Two have now been published by Heritage Books,
Inc. (Westminster, MD), Swabby, and Swabby II, and I am
now compiling Swabby III. Each of the first two books is
approximately 700 pages, and filled with hundreds of memo-
ries and then-and-now photos.
Preserving.these precious memories for future generations
has been a very rewarding experience. I was a World War
II swabby, and served aboard two ships. I would like to tell
future generations what life for the enlisted sailor was re-
ally like, thousands of miles away from home, and out of
sight of an adoring public.
Some of your readers, I suspect, were World War II en-
listed sailors. I would like to invite them to send me a per-
sonal experience or two from their time at sea.
The experiences may be good, or bad, funny or tragic, I'd
love to use a couple of then-and-now photos also. I'll make
nice copies of any photos, and mail back originals immedi-
ately. Jack Haberstroli

Editor,
In April 2003, the Walton County Taxpayers Association
formed a committee to review site selection and type of fa-
cility for a new county jail. The committee's recommenda-
tion to county commissioners was to build the new jail on
the county-owned 40 acres, five miles north of DeFuiiak
Springs, next to the state correctional facility.
This acreage would accommodate a 256-bed work camp
and a 160-bed secured facility and allow flexibility for
growth. Both facilities could use a common kitchen to cook
food, laundry to wash linens and clothing, and an office for
administrative duties in the operation of the jail. The ap-
proximate construction costs were $10,122,518, or less cost
per inmate than the downtown location.
Moving the jail outside of the city would address concerns
over the evacuation of inmates in cases of emergency, man-
aging inmates and liabilities while construction is taking
place. The abandoned space can serve expanded courthouse
uses such as a judicial center and additional parking. A court-
house complex would be preferable to a jail as a centerpiece
for DeFuniak Springs and would enhance the unique charm


and character of our historic town.
Every candidate who ran for Walton County sheriff in
2004, as well as Sheriff Johnson, supported moving the jail
out of DeFuniak Springs. The former county commission
rejected the Taxpayers' study and recommendation. They
stood by their decision to renovate and expand the existing
jail. Our new county commission has shown courage and a
keen responsiveness and sensitivity to county citizens in
revisiting the jail issue.
The Taxpayers Association urges anyone with an interest
in this major taxpayer issue to attend the county workshop
on the jail, January 25, 1 p.m., DeFuniak Springs court-
house.

Florida Arbor Day emphazises the importance of native trees


In recognition of Florida's
Arbor Day, the Department
of Environmental Protection
(DEP) is encouraging Florid-
ians to protect the State's
natural woodlands, hard-
wood hammocks and man-
grove forests by planting na-
tive trees and preventing the
spread of invasive plants. In
Florida, late winter is an
ideal time for planting native


trees, including the sabal
palm, Florida's State tree,
making Florida's Arbor Day
several weeks earlier than
the national observance.
"Trees play a primary role
in environmental protection
by conserving energy, reduc-
ing soil erosion, cleaning and
replenishing the air and pro-
tecting our rivers and
streams,", said DEP Secre-


,ary Colleen M. Castille.
"Planting native trees will
provide habitat for wildlife
and beautify our communi-
ties."

Arbor Day, the creation of
Julius Sterling Morton, first
took place in 1872 in Ne-
braska. Throughout his ca-
reer, Morton worked to im-
prove agricultural tech-


niques throughout the
United States, serving as
President Grover Cleveland's
Secretary of Agriculture.
In 1970, President Richard
Nixon proclaimed the last
Friday in April as National
Arbor Day. Since then, every
state in the nation and many
countries around the world
have designated their own
Arbor Day. Florida celebrates


the third Friday in January
as Arbor Day.

Florida is home to a num-
ber of invasive tress includ-
ing the Australian pine, chin-
aberry and Brazilian pepper.
Invasive, non-native plants
inhabit almost 15 percent of
Florida's public conservation
lands and waterways, de-
creasing native biodiversity


and affecting an eco-tourism -
economy valued at more than
$7.8 billion annually.
Throughout the past four
years, Governor Jeb Bush
has tasked a multi-agency
team with researching, pre-
venting and eradicating bio-
logical invasions in Florida.

Florida's children are unin-
sured for health care -- their
parents cannot afford to pay
for treatment and services.
Nemours, one of the nation's
largest pediatric subspecialty
group practices, is urging
parents of uninsured chil-
dren to act now and apply for
Florida's KidCare program
before its too late.
The program is accepting
open enrollment now,
through to the end of Janu-

Cyber Club


ary 2005 and there are about
70,000 available spots look-
ing to be filled.
Monthly premiums offered
by KidCare range from $15-
$20 a month. According to
the U.S. Department of
Health and Human Services,
to qualify for KidCare fami-
lies must have at least one
uninsured child and have a
household income below two
times the poverty level.
There are approximately
600,000 children who are
uninsured in Florida and re-


search indicates that parents
with children who do not
have health care coverage
are seven times more likely
to delay or avoid seeking
medical care for their kids,
than parents who have
health insurance.


For more information
about enrolling in Florida's
KidCare or to inquire about
eligibility, parents who have
questions are encouraged to
call: www.FloridaKidCare.

Q: I got a speed-
ing ticket recently and I
heard you can pay your
ticket on-line now. Is this
true? What if you want to
go to traffic school to keep
from getting points as-
sessed against your
record? Can you pay on-
line and still sign up for the
class?
A: You can pay most gen-
eral traffic citations using a
VISA or MasterCard credit/
debit card at http://
www.myfloridacounty.com,
if you received your ticket
in one of the 35 Florida
counties which currently
offers this service. Walton
County offers this service.
Payment for a traf-
fic citation is due within 30
days of the citation issue
date. Any payments made
using the on-line service
must be made by midnight
Eastern Standard Time
(EST) on the last business
day prior to the 30th day.
(Weekends are included in
this 30-day period. There is
typically a delay between

by law enforcement and
when it is received by the

involve the building. Bell
said he would provide an up-
date on acquisition plans for
the building to the commis-


sioners at their next meeting.
Contact Dotty Nist
online at:
dotty@defuniakherald.com.


Hillard commented.
District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones had been the
only BCC member to vote
against the suspension of the
downtown jail expansion
project.

At the Jan 25 meeting,
Jones said that, although he
still believed the on-site ex-
pansion was the best option
for the county, he did under-
stand the sentiment of the
other commission members.
"I think the most impor-
tant thing we can do now is
to get a jail in place," Jones
stated.
He moved to accept the rec-
ommendations presented by
Bell.
His motion carried unani-
mously and was followed by
applause by citizens in atten-
dance.
Plans include utilizing pod
components currently under


construction for the expan-
sion and redesign of those
pods to incorporate them into
the work camp/dormitory fa-
cility on the 40-acre site.
The facility is to include a
kitchen, laundry, booking
area, visitation area, medical
property storage area and a
judge's hearing room.
A 25,000-square-foot metal
building owned by the county
(now located at the emer-
gency operations center) is
also to be moved onto the 40
acres for use as sheriffs de-
partment administrative of-
fice space, a dispatch center,
a maintenance office, heli-
copter storage space, and an
impound yard.
To provide a temporary so-
lution to the jail's severe
overcrowding, an additional
tent will be constructed be-
hind the current jail. An ex-
ercise yard is also to be set
up near the jail and tempo-


rary office trailers will be
placed in the current jail vi-
cinity. These measures are
expected to cost $381,000 per
year.
County personnel will be
directed to suspend and/or
cancel any purchase orders
related to the current jail
until it can be determined
whether the items can be uti-
lized at the new location.
All jail construction is to be
suspended for 60 days. At the
end of that time, Peter Brown
Construction is to provide the
commissioners with a plan
for construction of the work
camp/dormitory and admin-
istrative offices on the 40-
acre site and provide a guar-
anteed construction price.
Bell suggested storage as a
good future use for the cur-
rent downtown jail building.
He said the storage area that
the county now uses at the
old First National Bank


building is now completely
full, and constitutional offic-
ers and county departments
are badly in need of
additional storage space.
As part of his presentation,
Bell included a statement
from Peter Brown, Inc. on
estimated costs associated
with suspension of work on
the jail project.
A 10-day suspension is es-
timated to run $52,000; an 11
to 60-day suspension up to
$85,000.
Brannon emphasized that
the $85,000 amount repre-
sents a "worst case scenario."
The commissioners had
voted two weeks ago two pur-
sue purchase of the former
DeFuniak Springs Wal-Mart,
with the possibility in mind
of using the building to for
temporary relief of jail over-
crowding or for other needs.
The jail options decided on
at the Jan. 25 meeting did not


Sheriff's Department asks for FDLE investigation


By BRUCE COLLIER
The Walton County
Sheriff's Office has asked the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement to look into the
case of a Walton County man
who was arrested in Decem-
ber, then flown to a Pensacola
hospital for a reported "medi-
cal problem."
This past December,


sheriff's deputies reportedly
received a call and went to
Brian Corbin's Walton
County residence, where
they found him badly beaten.
Corbin was reportedly ar-
rested and taken to Walton
County jail, but was not
booked. Instead, Corbin was
airlifted to Sacred Heart Hos-
pital in Pensacola, to be


treated for a reported "medi-
cal problem." The Sheriff's
Office would not describe the
reason for the call, or release
any other information as to
Corbin's condition or discuss
why he was arrested.
FDLE spokesperson Lisa
Lagergren stated that the
Walton County Sheriff's Of-
fice requested the investiga-


tion, and that Corbin has not
filed a complaint with FDLE
at this time. Lagergren
added that FDLE investiga-
tors are contacting and inter-
viewing witnesses. Corbin's
medical records are also be-
ing investigated to determine
the nature of his injuries and
the time at which they were
sustained.

'Heart
i Al Donaldson can remem-
ber when the communities of
Destin and south Walton
County had no hospital of
their own. He remembers
worrying about what would
happen if he had a heart at-
tack, and the local roads were
snarled with summertime
traffic so bad it would take
an hour to reach the nearest
hospital.
Today, two years after the
* opening of Sacred Heart Hos-
: pital on the Emerald Coast,
Donaldson says Sacred Heart
and its staff have become like
family in the south Walton
community.
"I couldn't overstate the
v value of Sacred Heart Hospi-
tal on the Emerald Coast," he
said. "It has given everyone
here peace of mind that they
can get more than adequate
medical care in a very short
period of time."
Donaldson spent many
days at Sacred Heart before
his wife passed away last
year after a long illness. "We
had no idea how wonderful
that hospital and its employ-
ees were going to be," he said.
"I have never been in a hos-
pital where the personnel at
all levels were so well-
trained. They consider the
needs of the patient and pro-
Svide care with a smile on
their face."
: In its first two years, the
50-bed hospital along U.S. 98
has provided more than
health care. Its other com-
munity benefits have in-
cluded new jobs, recruitment

The not-for-profit hospital
also has fulfilled its mission
to improve the health of the

18 months ago, my doctor
advised me to lose weight. I was
175 pounds with elevated blood
sugar. A 1200-calories diet and
walking program brought me to
150 pounds in 18 months, but I


dislike the walking and my progress plateaued.
Then I saw the Quick'n Fit ad in the local paper. I
love the exercise and aerobic equipment, espe-
cially the treadmills. The staff is so great. I lost 6
pounds in 10 visits. My daughters are amazed and
say, "Go for it". It's great and it is here in
DeFuniak Springs, not 30 minutes away. Try it.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS POLICE DEPARTMENT will
be conducting a comprehensive roadside safety checkpoint
on January 28, 2005 at the intersection of Highway 90 West
and 25th Street. The roadblock will be from 8 p.m. until
midnight. The DeFuniak Springs Police Department is com-
mitted to reducing the number of imparied drivers in this
area.

AMVETS POST 178, DeFuniak Springs, is having a "How
well do you know your mate" game. The fund raiser will be
held Saturday, January 29, at 7 p.m. Fun and prizes are
scheduled. The public is welcome. Members are urged to
attend and support their post.


TOWN


The county also wants the
statute authorizing Enter-
prise Zones to be reenacted.
The statute is slated to sun-
set at the end of 2005 unless
the Legislature acts.
Three zones exist in Wal-
ton County at the present
time. They are in DeFuniak
Springs, Freeport and the
Mossy Head industrial park.
"There has been a lot of ex-
citing interest in the Mossy
Head park, but we need the
enterprise zone," Jones said.
Legislators were also told
about the difficulty Walton
County is having in hiring
building inspectors, who
must meet stringent require-
ments of the Department of
Business and Professional
Regulation. "It has basically
become a bidding war, with
counties stealing from each
other," Bell said.
Freeport Mayor Mickey
Marse raised a concern about

future water supplies, sug-
gesting Morrison Springs
could be tapped for drinking
water.
Both Brown and Clary re-
sponded that water is a very
real concern. There is a docu-
mented reduction in the level
of water in the Floridan Aqui-
fer under the panhandle,
Brown explained.
"We need to look at other
ways, perhaps reservoirs, to
provide for our water needs,"
said Clary.

When asked about county
cost sharing for juvenile jus-
tice programs, Brown noted
that it all goes back to the
state budget.
"We must get a handle on
Medicaid," Brown empha-
sized. "There is always more
demand for revenue than we
can meet, and our job as leg-
islators is to set priorities,"
he said.

ment was made aware of the
previous compromise agree-
ment, he explained.
Hargett said that the track
is registered as a corporation.
Bob McGill, who owns
property adjacent to the
track, urged the commission-
ers to give code enforcement
to proceed "vigorously."
"The action needs to be
halted right now," he said.
Meadows asked if it would
be possible for staff to put a
stop work order on the activ-
ity, since it is a nonconform-
ing use in the residential
area.
Gary Vorbeck, county at-
torney, told them that this
was a decision that could
take place at the county staff
level.
The commissioners ex-
pressed agreement that staff
should, proceed in that direc-
tion without delay.

Bobby Bowden to appear in DeFuniak Springs


By Ron Kelley
Florida State head coach
Bobby Bowden will be in De-
Funiak Springs on Feb. 6,
Super Bowl Sunday, to talk
about his life and his experi-
ences both on and off the
field.
Bowden, a college football
icon, will appear at the First
Baptist Church of DeFuniak
Springs starting at 10:30
a.m. and church officials say
everyone is welcome to hear
Bowden's inspiring message.
In 2003, Bobby Bowden,
who's been at FSU for 29
years, became college
football's winningest coach
and is the only coach in
NCAA history to play in 14
consecutive bowl games and
win 11 consecutive games.
Bowden has won a total of 19
bowl games during his FSU
career. In the 29 years before
Bowden came to FSU, the
Seminoles had only been to
eight bowl games.
Since Bowden, Florida
State is the only team to have
finished among the Associ-
ated Press' Top Five for 14
consecutive seasons and has
been national champions
twice.
Regarding his astonishing
accomplishment on the field,
Bowden is somewhat self-ef-
facing and seems as sur-
prised by his success as any-
one. "I don't really think
about it. Maybe when I'm
done I'll look back on every-
thing," he said. "There are
more important things in
life."
Friendly and outgoing,
Bowden, 75, is a deeply reli-
gious man who gives to char-
ity and greets total strangers
like old friends. Constantly in
demand on the speaking cir-
cuit, the off-season usually
finds Bowden in the pulpit of
a Southern church discussing
family values and the impact
God has had on his own life.
Bobby Bowden played foot-
ball at Woodlawn High
School in Birmingham and


BOBBYBOWDEN


went on to fulfill a lifelong
dream of playing for the Ala-
bama Crimson Tide as a
freshman quarterback. He
lasted one semester before
Ann Estock, his high school
sweetheart, talked him into
returning to Birmingham
and transferring to Howard
College. It turned out to be a
winning play. Bobby and Ann
have been together 56 years
and have six children.
Their four sons are also in
the game. Tommy is head
coach at Clemson; Terry is a
college football analyst for
ABC and Steve co-wrote a
bestselling book with his fa-
mous father called, The
Bowden Way. Jeff is in his
12th season on the FSU staff
and daughter Robyn is mar-
ried to Clemson assistant
coach Jack Hines. Only
daughter Ginger escaped the
lure of sports. She's a suc-
cessful attorney.
. DeFuniak Springs Mayor
Pro-Tempore Harold Carpen-
ter, who is also a First Bap-


tist Church deacon said,
"This is not a First Baptist
Church event, this is a com-
munity event and we want
everybody to come and hear
Coach Bowden."
The church, located on the
corner of Live Oak Avenue
and 11th Street, is two blocks
from the DeFuniak Springs
Public Library. Carpenter
said the main sanctuary can
hold 700 people and closed-.
circuit TV will be set up in
the church's fellowship hall,
which can handle another
300 people.
As for parking, they'll have
shuttle buses running from
Doctor's Medical Center on
Main Street, the former
Piggly Wiggly parking lot on
Baldwin Avenue and the Boy
Scout hut on 11th Street to
handle the overflow.
The event is free to the
public.
For more information, call
the church office at 892-2722
or Harold Carpenter at 892-
3721.

'"Hitched" again


By MARY MESSER
There was a great celebra-
tion at Sunset-King Lake
Resort on Sunday, January
16, 2005, to honor the 15th
anniversary of Roger and
Kim Roy.
The shindig was held at the
chapel on the grounds of the
resort. Roger and Kim were
dressed in their best Sunday-
go-to-meeting clothes, while
several others were also
dressed in their best finery.
Tony and Patsy Roy were
best man and matron of
honor, with the father of the
bride, Olin Talley, giving her
away.
Larry Snook, Roger's fa-


their, followed them down the
aisle with a shot gun, while
his mother, Julie Snook,
watched with his 90-year-old
grandmother, Beanie Finch.
Danny Glidewell, who is a
lieutenant for the Walton
Sheriffs Department, con-
ducted the services.
Roger Roy is the fire chief
of Liberty Fire Department,
where his brother, Tony, is
also a volunteer. The service
was attended by about 80
people and a reception fol-
lowed at the club house.
This was truly an anniver-
sary the happy couple will
never forget.


ROGER AND KIM proudly display their "Re-Hitching cer-
tificate. "

The church is located at 144 Circle Drive.
The preacher for the traditional service will be Rev. Al
Reese of the First Presbyterian Church. Also participating

The Fifth Sunday tradition is more than 70 years old.
The collection taken up during the service funds Associated
Ministries in the city. The First Baptist Church in DeFu-
niak Springs offers financial support of the ministerial pro-
gram as well.
The subject of Rev. Reese's sermon will be "We say we
see, but...." and will be based on portions of the Scripture
found in John 9.
The Union Service rotates among the three churches.
"It is a great privilege to host the service," Father Brown
said. "Each congregation is enriched by the others. All three
of us remain remarkably close in our friendship," he said.
Being in an Episcopal Church, part of the service will be
based on the book of Common Prayer used by that denomi-
nation.

The loving kindnesses of the Lord

By Dr. Robert M. Jaye

In Isaiah 63:7 there appears these words: "I will mention
the lovingkindness of the Lord, and the praises of the Lord,
according to all that the Lord hath bestowed upon us." Can
you do this? There are mercies which you have experienced.
You may now be gloomy, yet can you not remember that won-
derful hour when Jesus met you, and said, "Come unto me?"
Surely you can remember that wonderful hour when He
loosed your fetters, dashed your chains to the earth, and
broke the power of sin in your life!
If the love of your salvation may be dim, there must surely
be some precious milestones along the road of life not quite
grown over with moss. There you can read a happy memo-
rial of His mercy towards you. Have you never had a sick-
ness, like that which you may have now, and did He not
restore you? When you were poor, He supplied your needs.
Were you never in difficulty before, and did He not deliver
you? i
I memory, go back to the river of your experience, and pull
up a few bulrushes. Plait them into an ark wherein your
faith can float safely upon the stream of life. Do not forget
what your God has done for you. Look into the book of re-
membrance, and consider the days of old. Can you remem-
ber the hills you have had to climb. The Lord met you all
along the way. Have you been helped in time of need? Yes, I
know you have.
Light up the lamps of the past. See the way the Lord has
led you, even when you did not think so. Trust in the Lord
till the day breaks, and the shadows flee away. Remember
that the Lord's mercies have ever been, even from old.

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
Hwy. 90 E. to Ponce de Leon, turn right onto 181A, the church is right

The Bible
and Iraq

By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC
Sponsored by T.P. Motors
This was e-mailed to me by Al Wilson, thanks Al!
Just in case you might think of Iraq as a RhinkyDink,
country and. "only" .an -oilrich nation;' ruled by-aait-evi'-
dictator for 30 years, .whether it has been supporting'
terrorists or not, may not be very important. Here are a
few important facts regarding the important history and
roles that this nation has played down through history,
some of them surprised me.
*The garden of Eden was in Iraq.
eMesopotamia, which is now Iraq, was the cradle of
civilization.
Noah built the ark in Iraq.
*The Tower of Babel was in Iraq.
*Abraham was from Ur, which is in Southern Iraq.
*Isaac's wife, Rebekah, is from Nahor, which is in Iraq.
*Jacob met Rachel in Iraq.
*Jonah preached in Nineveh which is in Iraq.
*Assyria, which is in Iraq, conquered the ten tribes of
Israel.
*Amos cried out in Iraq.
Babylon, which is in Iraq, destroyed Jerusalem\.
*Daniel was in the lion's den in Iraq.
*The three Hebrew children were in the fire in Iraq.
*Belshazzar, King of Babylon, saw the "writing on the
wall" in Iraq.
*Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, carried the Jews
captive into Iraq.
*Ezekiel preached in Iraq.
*The three wise men were from Iraq.The bible says
they visited Jesus
*Peter preached in Iraq.
The "Empire of Man" described in Revelation is called
Babylon, a city in Iraq!
Israel is the nation most often mentioned in the Bible.
Do you know which nation is second? It's Iraq!
That is not the name used in the Bible. Names used
in the Bible are Babylon, Land of Shinar, and
Mesopotamia.
The word Mesopotamia means "between the two riv-
ers," between the Tigris where Saddam was hiding, when
he was captured and Euphrates Rivers.
Iraq means "country with deep roots." Iraq is a coun-
try with deep roots and is a very significant country in
the Bible.
Here's why............Proof that you can check,listed be-
low............
*Eden was in Iraq--Genesis 2: 10-14
*Adam & Eve were created in Iraq--Genesis 2: 7-8
*Satan made his first recorded appearance in Iraq--
Genesis 3: 1-6
SNimrod established Babylon & Tower of Babel was
built in Iraq---Genesis 10:8-97 & 11: 1-4
*The confusion of the languages took place in Iraq--
Genesis 11: 5-11
*Abraham came from a city in Iraq--Genesis 11: 31 &
Acts 7: 2-4
*Isaac's bride came from Iraq--Genesis 24:3-4 & 10
Jacob spent 20 years in Iraq--Genesis 27: 42-45 &
31:38
The first World Empire was in Iraq--Daniel 1:1-2 &
2: 36-38
*The greatest revival in history was in a city in Iraq-
-Jonah 3
*The events of the book of Esther took place in Iraq--
Esther
*The book of Nahum was a prophecy against a city in
Iraq--Nahum
*The book or Revelation has prophecies against
Babylon, which was the old name for the nation of Iraq-
-Rev. 17 &18
No other nation, except Israel, has more history and
prophecy associated with it than Iraq

Miami will open their sea-
son with the Seminoles in
Tallahassee on Sept. 5. But
then they must travel to
Clemson, S.C.
Going into Death Valley to
take on another Bowden in
just two weeks on the road
will prove interesting. If
memory serves correctly for
all you Miami fans, Clemson
hit south Florida last year
like a hurricane and went
back to South Carolina with
a win over Miami.
The No. 2 team in the na-
tion from the 2004 standing
was Auburn. After their
slaughter of Virginia Tech
in the Sugar Bowl, the Tigers
celebrated a perfect season,
and even though finished
just behind Southern Cal,
the Tiger fans knew they had
a national championship
team, no matter what the
stats, rankings, or polls said!
But this year, the Tigers
will have to regroup because
of a huge senior class leaving
and the NFL calling.
Tommy's Tigers have been
warned that this year could
be their rebuilding time.
Auburn opens their season
on Sept. 3 with Georgia Tech
visiting Jordan Hare Sta-
dium.
Auburn's state rival Ala-
bama, has much to prove to
many. After a lack-luster
2004 season, the Tide knows
this is the year to shine in the
state and in the SEC.
Alabama played a close
game thispast year against
Auburn in Tuscaloosa, but
was unable to topple the per-
fect-season Tigers. This
year, they travel to Auburn.
Just remember, the Tiger
fans can be somewhat more
rowdy than your typical col-
lege football fan.
It's Auburn vs. Alabama,
and there is no way to predict
an outcome or a winner when
it comes to these two power-
houses and their fan base.

Commissioners move


to expedite Bayou


Forest Road paving


By DOTTY NIST
Walton County Public
Works has made a commit-
ment to have county crews on
the job by next week to expe-
dite the paving of Bayou For-
est Roads East and West.
The roads are located off
LaGrange Road in District 4.
The plan follows a Jan. 25
Walton County Board of
County Commission (BCC)
decision to pull the project
contractor, Advance Con-
struction, off the job due to
delays.
It began with Walton
County Public Works Direc-
tor Russ Barry telling the
BCC, "I've lost faith in their
ability to finish this road in a
timely manner."
'Barry said he recently sat
down with representatives of
the contractor but came away
with the feeling that the
project was not being aggres-
sively pursued.
His recommendation was
to "let Advance Construction
go." Barry also recommended
putting county crews to work
on Bayou Forest Roads East
and West on an immediate
basis.


Barry said Dec. 14 had
been the scheduled date for
completion of the project. The
contractor had submitted for
a 10-day extension plus some
additional "hurricane days"
due to Ivan, he related.
"They're a good solid six
weeks from completion,"
Barry estimated.
Lew Najor, owner of Ad-
vance Construction dis-
agreed.
"We can do it in a month
or less," he told the commis-
sioners. Major said his office
is located in one of the areas
hit hardest by Hurricane
Ivan in Sept. Because of the
storm, work time was missed,
they were without power for
several weeks, he explained,
and the company superinten-
dent lost his home.
Najor added that there
were right-of-way, easement,
and utility issues related to
the paving project.
He said his company had
successfully completed sev-
eral similar jobs in neighbor-
ing counties and asked that
his company not be pulled
from the project.
Cliff Knauer of Preble-
Rish, an engineering com-


pany under contract to the
county, told the commission-
ers that promises by the
project superintendent to
meet with him and Barry
regularly had not material-
ized.

District 1 Commissioner
Scott Brannon said he had
received numerous complaint
phone calls from the public
about problems with the
project.

District 4 Commissioner
Ro Cuchens said there had
also been many similar calls
to his office.
"We have had no respect
from the contractors,"
Cuchens complained.
He made a motion to put
Barry's recommendation into
action and place a lien
against the contractor's per-
formance bond. In addition,
he called for the company to
be placed on the county's
debarrment list of companies
not to be considered for future
contracts. The motion carried
unanimously.

Top ] I .0 Fe t I ;rs '- -,eron litis


By DOTTY NIST
A slight break is being rec-
ommended for an Alaqua
Creek property owner who
owes the county over $30,000
in fines.
Buddy Gentry of G&S
Boats incurred the fines due
to Destin Reef Builders, an
artificial reef building busi-
ness that operated for a time
on his Alaqua Creek prop-
erty.
Destin Reef Builders
stored chicken cages on the
rented Alaqua Creek prop-
erty. The doors and floors
were removed from the
cages, and the business
"sunk" them at various loca-
tions to serve as artificial
fishing reefs, those locations
being sold to fishermen. The
cages were transported onto
and off the property by
barges.
Neighbors of the business
raised complaints due to its
operation in their residential


area. A number of them at-
tended a hearing regarding
the business at the March
2004 Walton County Code
Enforcement Board meeting.
The residents complained' of
danger posed by. the fast-
moving barges, oil and gas
seen floating in the creek
water, diesel fumes and noise
generated by the business's
boat and barge engines and
machinery, and creek erosion
blamed on boat and barge
traffic related to the busi-
ness.
The business was found in
violation for operating with-
out a development order and
for operating in a residential
area contrary to county code.
It was ordered to cease and
desist within 45 days or face
fines of $150 per day.
In May 2004, Gentry told
the board he had wrote an
eviction letter to Bob Price,
the reef building business
owner; he read the letter


aloud to the board members.
In August 2004, long after
the expiration of the 45-day
period allotted for correction
of the violation, then-Walton
County Code Enforcement
Coordinator Gary Hulion re-
ported that there was no in-
dication that the business
was being evicted from the
property.
Hulion said chicken houses
remained on the property
and were still being trans-
ported onto and off the prop-
erty via the creek.
The board members made
the finding that the property
owner was in violation and
subject to $150-a-day fines as
of May 15, 2004, the day af-
ter the allotted 45-day pe-.
riod.
At the board's Jan. 20
meeting, Gentry appeared,
the violation having been cor-
rected and all reef building
business equipment having
been removed as of Dec. 1.0,


NEW MEMBERS of Walton County Code Enforcement were introduced a the Jan. 20
Code Enforcement Board meeting. From left: Jennipher Buller, code enforcement officer,
Kevin Hargett, new code enforcement coordinator, and J. C. Alford, code enforcement officer.


2004, according to the testi-
mony of Code Enforcement
Officer Buddy Wright. Ac-
cording to code enforcement
calculations,, the property
owner's fines had accumu-
lated to $31,500 prior td the
date he was recognized as
having corrected the viola-
tion.
Gentry and his attorney
Sherry Hall argued that the
property owner had complied
with the board order much
earlier than Dec. 10.
Hall explained that Gentry
thought he had complied in
May by ordering Price off the
property. She said she
thought county staff had mis-
understood and thought the
business was still operating
because some of Price's
"stuff'" was still on the prop-
erty.
"He left me with the junk,"
Gentry explained. He said
the business ceased operat-
ing within a month of the
March 2004 order---but that
he had to spend $7,852 of his
own money to have the items
left behind from the business
removed.
After some discussion, the
board members declined to
revisit their earlier findings
of fact in the case.
Board member David
Kramer recalled that legal
and public health and safety
issues had been involved in
the board decision.
"This is the cost of doing
business and not doing it
properly," he said of the fines.
A reduction of fines im-
posed by the code enforce-
ment board is the province of
the Walton County Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC.) However, the code
enforcement board members
anticipated that the BCC

More beach scraping approved for Walton County


By DOTTY NIST
The beach scraping proce-
dures that began in Walton
County after Hurricane Ivan
will be allowed to continue
through April 15 by state per-
mit.
Brad Pickel, Walton
County beach management
director, said a request by the
county for an extension of the
scraping activities for dune
rebuilding got state approval
two weeks ago.
The permit will apply to
the same 13.5 miles of
beachfront for which the
state originally approved
scraping in the wake of the
mid-September hurricane's
visit to the gulf coast. This
includes western Walton


County to the western
Sandestin Resort boundary,
Beach Highlands, Dune
Allen to Old Florida Beach,
Blue Mountain Beach, Gulf
Trace, east of Seaside to the
eastern side of Eastern Lake,
from Camp Creek subdivi-
sion to the eastern Sea Cliffs
subdivision boundary, and
part of Inlet Beach.
Scraping has been con-
tracted to'the Ammons and
Chandler construction com-
panies.

Pickel said he believes
scraping will be more produc-
tive than previously because
a "hump" of accumulated
sand is noticeable now a
short distance onshore in


many of the beach areas, as
sand taken offshore by storm
forces is returning.
"Now we are getting some
sand volumes," he remarked.
By Feb. 1, the scraping
equipment will have made
five post-hurricane "passes"
in the permitted area, Pickel
said. He expects one more
pass by mid-April. There will
be no further scraping re-
quests this spring since sea
turtle nesting officially sea-
son begins May 1.
According to evaluations,
Pickel said, Walton County
lost over one million cubic
yards of sand from the beach
due to Ivan's impact. Inves-
tigations are under way to
determine whether addi-


tional sand needs to be
trucked into some locations
to remedy erosion effects on
the beach. Over 32,000 cubic
yards have been brought in
in conjunction .with the
reconstruction of Miramar
Beach Access.

As part of the feasibility
study conducted as part of
Walton County's research on
beach renourishment, im-
pacts of potential hurricanes
were modeled. Pickel said the
modeling was found to be
very accurate in predicting
the amount of impact that
occurred due to Ivan, which
was considered a Level 1
storm with regard to Walton
County.


Also on the beach erosion
front, Pickel had a positive.
report on the 2000-foot-long
experimental beach recovery
project under way on Inlet
Beach.
During the month of De-
cember, the porous groines in
use in the project area accu-
mulated over 2700 cubic
yards of sand on this state-
designated critically eroded
area, Pickel commented. He
emphasized that this comes
at a time of year when there
is normally some beach ero-
sion due to strong winter
wave action. The project will
run through the end of April
and progress will continue to
be closely monitored.
Pickel said he anticipates


that, with the possible.excep-
tion of the severely damaged
Miramar Beach access, all
the 48 beach accesses main-
tained by the South Walton
Tourist Development Council
will be ready for use and open
prior to April 1.

Recently opened beach ac-
cesses include the Gulfpoint
Road neighborhood access
and the Blue Mountain
Beach regional access. The
accesses at Hickory Street
and Old Seagrove Road are
under reconstruction, and
the CR-395 access will be
next in line for repair.

Fire as a forest management tool


THIS DIVISION OF FORESTRY helicopter was on display at a recent demonstration
and conference on the use of prescribed fire in the management of both state-owned and
privately-owned forests in Florida. Helicopters are used to start a grid of spot fires in re-
mote-areas, The chopper ejects incendiary devices that resemble ping pong balls, ;


By A.N A LARSEN
Once upon a time, fire-
adapted pine forests thrived
over vast areas of the South.
Every spring and summer,
many fires were started by
lightning. Although most
thunderstorms in Florida are
accompanied by rain, fires
occur when the lightning bolt
strikes outside the area of
rainfall or ignites fuel that
smolders, and then burns as
the area dries out after the
rain ends.
Because a forest is a com-
plex system of interrelated
parts, fire, a natural force in
the forest, has helped deter-
mine what kind of plant com-
munities are found in
Florida.
Longleaf pine, wiregrass
and sand pine are some fa-
miliar plants that are well-
adapted to fire.
For example, sand pine
cones remain closed until a
fire's intense heat opens the
cone and allows the seeds to
fall out, and longleafpine has
very fire-resistant bark.
If fires are suppressed and
removed from the forest sys-
tem, hardwoods and other
plants grow too tall and thick
underneath the pines. The
shade prevents wiregrass
and other native plants from
growing.
The plant communities
shaped by fire in turn provide
habitat for wildlife. Without
FINE


would ask tor their recom-
mendation.
A motion was passed rec-
ommending a $7,852 reduc-
tion in the $31,500 fine.
In other action, the board
recommended the initiation
of foreclosure on the Palace
Store in Miramar Beach in
order to collect fines owed.
The owner of the business,
A&CH Properties, has been
charged with a total of $3,160
in fines in connection with a
code-prohibited high inten-
sity lights. The board found
the business in violation for
the lights in August 2004.
According to code, when 90
days passes after the finding
of a violation without compli-
ance, the board has the right
to request foreclosure by the
county attorney.
Three new members of
code enforcement were intro-


fire, the natural plant com-
munities are altered, and
along with them, the animals
that depend on the habitat
also disappear.
Deer, dove, quail, and tur-
key are game species that
benefit from fire. Gopher tor-
toises, scrub jays, red-
cockaded woodpeckers, in-
digo snakes and the Florida
panther are just a few of the
many non-game species
which depend on fire.
Fire stimulates fruit and
seed production and new
growth of a variety of plants
that feeds wildlife.
A lack of frequent small,
natural fires also contributes
to a build-up of what land
managers call "fuel load,"
which means tnere is too
much flammable material in
the forest that could become
a raging wildfire.
These are some of the rea-
sons why prescribed fire has
become a management tool
used on both state-owned
and privately-owned lands.
Resource managers have
learned to manipulate fire-
caused changes in plant and
animal communities to.meet
their needs by varying the
timing, frequency, and inten-
sity of fire.
Many private companies,
individual landowners and
public agencies manage land
where prescribed fires are
necessary to improve and


duced: new Code Enforce-
ment Coordinator Kevin
Hargett, plus J.C. Alford and
Jennipher Buller, code en-


protect the natural resources
and to reduce the risk of wild-
fire.

The Division of Forestry
has a prescribed burn pro-
gram on about 10,000 of the
15,000 acres of the Pt. Wash-
ington State Forest in south
Walton and has planted over
1.5 million longleaf pine
seedlings, all part of a plan
to return the forest to its na-
tive condition.
Some of the obstacles to
contend with are unfavorable
winds, dry years, proximity
to homes and smoke manage-
ment. This year, some areas
also have hurricane debris to
deal with. Although the Pt.
Washington area didn't have
too many downed trees from
Hurricane Ivan, the Black-
water River area is a cause
for concern.
According to Joe Anderson,
district manager for the
Chipola River District of the
Division of Forestry, it may
be difficult to get equipment
into the Blackwater forest
because of trees and other
debris. Anderson is worried
about how intensely an acci-
dental fire might burn, and
urges caution on the part of
visitors and hunters.
Anderson also would like
private landowners to know
that the Division of Forestry
is available to help facilitate
prescribed burning.

Aerators:



Go with the Flow

i Do you have a faucet that blasts out a

huge stream of water?

If it doesn't have an aerator tip,

you're wasting money.



Aerators are a simple and inexpensive way to save
money on youl water bill. These little devices

screw onto the business end of your faucet.
They save you money by mixing air with the
water, creating a flow that is still forceful but that

uses far fewer gallons per minute.

How much difference does it make?

When washing hands, doing dishes or anything

else other than filling something up, with an
aerator you will use 50 percent less water.
Not a bad savings for something that
costs only a couple of bucks.
So check your kitchen sink, bathroom

lavatories, laundry tubs, and bar sinks.
If they don't have aerators, put one on.

You will save dough

by cutting the flow.

are used to reclassify the
land use of a property. Most
often amendments are
sought to allow property to be
developed at a higher density
or intensity. With Walton
County property now at
record values and with recent
high demand in the real es-
tate market, interest in
small-scale amendments has
also reached a record level
this year.
According to Walton
County Senior Planner Tom
Blackshear, in 2002 only 36
acres of property were in-
cluded in small-scale amend-
ments submitted to the state.
Last year, Blackshear re-
called, the 80-acre
threshold was met, with a
number of applications for
small-scale amendments and
accompanying checks being
returned to applicants.
Small-scale amendments
are reviewed by the Walton
County Planning Commis-
sion and finally by the Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) in
public hearings. While some
of the. 38 applications may
not receive county approval,
Blackshear said the county
still expects the 80-acre
threshold to be exceeded
this year in terms of applica-
ti'hs '"re'i'vinig proval.
He said there will still be
hope for the applications that
are lower on the priority list
when the threshold is met.
"The remaining ones will
hopefully go in as part of the
next large-scale amend-
ment," Blackshear explained.
None of the planners were
aware of any other locality
ever using the lottery method
for prioritization of applica-
tions.
Why the change from the
"first-come-first-served"
policy for small-scale amend-
ments?
Blackshear said the super-
strong demand for the
amendments on the part of
property owners was the rea-


son. There was a concern
that applicants would be
camping out in the planning
department parking lot the
night before the first day ap-
plications were accepted,
Blackshear explained, each
one intent on getting his
property or properties con-
sidered first for reclassifica-
tion.
While this scenario may
sound outrageous,
Blackshear explained that a
similar situation actually oc-
curred a while back when the

AROUND THE SOUTH


Local radio station,
WSBZ 106.3, the
Seabreeze, heats up
the airwaves, con-
cert venue and the
educational system.
Smooth jazz has once
again invaded the
Emerald Coast and
everyone is able to
take advantage.

WSBZ is known for their
soothing blend of adult con-
temporary and smooth jazz
music. This year, the radio
station is stepping up to the
plate to bring educational
programs, another sell-out
concert weekend and cash
awards to locals.
WSBZ's season starts off
this weekend with saxophon-
ist Jeff Kashiwa. He will be
hosting a series of jazz band
clinics with local middle, and.
high schools in Walton and
bkaloosa 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 improve 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
that Kashiwa works well
with children and does such a

Inner-City Epic
'Coach Carter' delivers
a solid, if cliched,
message in a secular,
sermonizing style
By Wesley Morris
vnu entertainment report
If you don't get to church
much but are even mildly
concerned about the future of
urban youth, "Coach Carter"
is here to offer well more than
two hours of secular sermon-
izing.
Even if not, this by-the-
numbers basketball drama
might be enough to put the
fear of Samuel L. Jackson
into you.
As real-life basketball
coach and motivational
speaker Ken Carter, Jackson
barrels through this movie's
Richrmpod, CaJ4t, igh s.hiol.
His simmering performance
hs two, maye".threet'otes -
outraged disappointment,
outraged joy and outraged
outrage but Jackson's been
doing vexed long enough to
wring emotion out of it. And
he obviously believes in this
story, which plays like a pub-
lic service announcement for
at-risk kids.
In 1997, Carter, who owned
a local sporting goods store,
took the position of basketball
coach at Richmond High, an
underserved school in a ma-
jority black and Hispanic
community north of Oakland.
Carter was a star player for
Richmond in the 1970s and
saw the job as an opportunity
to reverse the team's losing
record with a strict, brutally
no-nonsense sorry, tough
love approach to coaching.
He had his players sign
contracts obliging them to
wear jackets and ties on game


Samuel L. Jackson (center) portrays Coach Ken Cart
school basketball coach who places academics over
games, in "Coach Carter."

SMALL


Fortunately, designers and
retailers are finally starting
to provide some hope for
small shoppers.
Banana Republic now of-
fers a petite collection.
"This is totally based on
customer feedback," says Ba-
nana Republic spokeswoman
Michelle Hellman.
Hellman says the
company's research shows
that 43 percent of U.S. fe-
males are petite, commonly


defined as 5-foot-4 and under.
Some estimates put the fig-
ure as high as 60 percent.
Some big-name designers
are starting to expand their
lines to accommodate shorter-
framed shoppers.

Nancy Taylor Farel urges ex-

6 p.m. Community Meeting for Scenic Gulf
Drive area Faith Assembly
Church, 306 S. Geronimo Street in
Miramar Beach.
The Walton County Board of Com-
missioners approved a proposal for
engineering, planning and surveying
along the Scenic Gulf Drive right-
of- way on Feb. 24, 2004. Preble-Rish
Engineering, with offices on CR- 30A in
south Walton, was given the task of
providing these services.
Preble-Rish has surveyed existing con-
ditions along the length of Scenic
Gulf Drive for parking areas, crosswalk
locations, intersections, and traffic flow.
From this data, they have drawn up
proposals for turning lanes, parking that
is coordinated with stormwater, bike path
and crosswalk locations, and off-street
parking areas and standardized cross
walks that will enhance pedestrian
safety. Extensive effort has been made
to coordinate with condominium associa-
tions on irrigation, landscape and main
tenance plans in the areas where those
units are located.
This meeting will update residents of the
area and interested citizens on -the sta-
tus of this project.

Reading your phone bill isn't what it used to be. What once required a brief glance now demands a
concerted effort to make sure everything is where it should be, the numbers add up and nothing is
added on that doesn't belong. What follows is a brief guide to making sense out of your monthly
phone bill. A more detailed brochure, called "Navigating Your Phone Bill," can be downloaded from
the PSC's website (www.floridapsc.com).
A residential phone bill has three components:
local service charges, long distance service charges and taxes.


*A. a,* a '-w ., r 9aw*-

The local service portion may include some
or all of the following:

FCC Local Number Portability Line Charge
(also known as a Number Portability Surcharge
or Service Provider Number Portability Fee):
Local phone companies were permitted, but not
required, to assess a fee to cover the costs
associated with allowing consumers to .retain
their phone numberwhen switching carriers. The
right to charge the fee was time-limited by the
Federal Communications Commission, and
some consumers have seen this charge
disappear from their bills.

Residential Line Charge: This is the monthly
local service charge. In most cases it is a flat-
rate fee, although sometimes it may appear as a
flat rate plus a usage charge. This is what the
local phone company is paid for providing
service.

Emergency 911 Charge: This fee is assessed
and-paid to the city or county providing the
consumer with emergency 911 service.

FCC Network Access Charge (sometimes
called a Subscriber Line Charge or an Interstate
Access Surcharge): The FCC allows local phone
companies to be compensated for the use of their
local network in completing long distance calls.
This fee goes to the local companies, not to the
FCC.

Telecommunications Access System Act
Surcharge: This fee is used to provide
telecommunications devices and relay services
for Florida residents with hearing or speech
impairments. By law, the money collected.from
this fee goes to a non-profit corporation
established by law to provide devices and
services to qualified individuals. ,

Universal Service Fund Charge: A fee used
to insure affordable access to the telecommuni-
cations network for low-income consumers or
those who live in areas where the cost of
providing service is high. Also used to provide
telecommunications access to schools and
libraries and advanced services for rural health
care providers.


2 Consumers may receive a separate bill from
their long distance provider or may have
it included with their monthly local bill. In either
case, a long distance bill will nriormally include
the following:

Long Distance Charges: Billing statements
usually itemize calls, including date placed,
number called and the duration of the call.

Universal Service Fund Charge: Interstate
carriers are required to contribute to the federal
universal service fund, as are local service
providers. The FCC allows interstate carriers to
pass along this charge to consumers but does
not require them to do so.

Minimum Usage Charge: Some carriers charge
customers a minimum monthly fee for long
distance service, regardless of whether the
customer actually makes calls.

Calling Plan Charges: Some consumers
subscribe to calling plans that provide a range of
options that meet specific customer demands.
These plans vary widely in terms of what is
offered and prices range from a few dollars per
month to $25 a month.

3 The third aspect.of a monthly phone bill is
taxes. Essentially, there are two kinds
Qf taxes levied on a phone bill, federal and state.
Congress, not the FCC, imposes a three percent
tax on all telecommunications services, including
local, interstate and wireless. The state adds
what is called a "Communications Service Tax."
There are two parts to the state tax: the "Local
Communications Services Tax," which are city
or local taxes, (formerly called "franchise fees"),
and a "State Communications Services Tax,"
(which used to be called a "Gross Receipts Tax").


Braulio L. Baez is the Chairman of the Florida
Public Service Commission. The PSC sets the
rates regulated utility companies charge for
natural gas, electric and telephone service
within the state. In 36 counties, it sets the
price you pay for the water you drink, if your
water company is privately owned.

Systems at 850.487.4475, or by writ-
ing to 3900 Commonwealth Boule-
vard, Mail Station 300. Tallahassee,
Florida 32399.

Any person whose substantial inter-
ests are affected by any decision of
the Department on the application
has the right to request an admin-
istrative hearing in accordance with
the provisions of Section 120.569
and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes.
Should you desire an administrative
hearing, your request must comply
with the provisions of Rule 28-
106.201 of the Florida Administra-
tive Code, as indicated below. Send
requests for hearings to the Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection,
Office of General Counsel, 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail
Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida
32399 (the "Department"). The De-
partment must receive the request
within twenty-one (21) days after
your receipt of this notice.

When the Department receives an
adequate and timely filed request
for hearing, the Department will re-
quest the assignment of an admin-
istrative law judge. Once an admin-
istrative law judge is requested, the
referring agency will take no further
action with respect to the proceed-
ing except as a party litigant, as long
as the Division of Administrative
Hearings has jurisdiction over the
formal proceeding.
Section 120.54(5)(b)4, Florida
Statutes and Rule 28-106.201(2),
Florida Administrative Code, ex-
plain what must be included in a
petition for a formal administrative
proceeding.
(a) The name and address of each
agency affected and each agency's
file or identification number, if
known;
(b) The name, address, and tele-
phone number of the Petitioner, the -
name, address, and telephone num-
ber of the Petitioner's representa-
tive, if any, which shall be the ad-
dress for service purposes during the
course of the proceeding, and an ex-
planation of how the Petitioner's
substantial interests will be affected
by the agency determination;
(6) A statement of when and how
the Petitioner received notice of the
agency decision; .
(d) A statement.of all issues of
material fact disputed by the Peti-
tioner or a statement that there are
no disputed facts;
(e) A concise statement of the ul-
timate facts alleged, including a
statement of the specific facts that
the Petitioner contends warrant re-
versal or modification of the
Department's action;
(f) A statement of the specific
rules or statutes the Petitioner con-
tends require reversal or modifica-
tion of the Department's action, in-
cluding an explanation of how the
alleged facts relate to the specific-
rules or statutes; and
(g) A statement of the relief
sought by the Petitioner, stating pre-
cisely the action that the Petitioner
wants the Department to take with
respect to its action.

A person may request an extension
of time to petition for an adminis-
trative hearing. The person filing
the request for extension must do so
within the time limits for filing a pe-
tition described above and serve all
parties with the request. The re-
quest must state why an extension
is needed. The Department will
grant an extension only when good
cause is shown.

If a petition or request for extension
of time is filed, further order of the
Department becomes necessary to
effectuate this notice. Accordingly,
the Department's final action may
be different from the position taken
by it in this notice. Actions under-
taken by you under this permit,
pending the lapse of time allowed for
the filing of such a request for hear-
ing may be subject to modification,
removal, or restoration.

Failure to petition within the al-
lowed time frame constitutes waiver
of any right that such person has to
request a hearing under Section
120.57 of the Florida Statutes and
to participate as a party to the pro-
ceeding.

If a legally sufficient petition for
hearing is not timely received this
notice constitutes final agency ac-
tion. When this order becomes fi-
nal, any party to the order has the
right to seek judicial review under
Section 120.57 of the Florida Stat-
ues and Rule 9.030(b)(1) and 9.110
of the Florida Rules of Appellate
Procedure by filing a notice of ap-
peal with the Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection, Office of the
General Counsel, Department
Clerk, 3900 Commonwealth Boule-
vard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399, and with the appro-
priate district court of appeal within
thirty (30) days after this final or-
der is filed with the Department
Clerk. The notice filed with the dis-
trict court must be accompanied by


the filing fee specified in Subsection
35.22(3) of the Florida Statutes. Any
subsequent intervention will only be
at the approval of the presiding of-
ficer upon motion filed under Rule
28-106.205, Florida Administrative
Code.

A person whose substantial inter-
ests are affected by the
Department's proposed agency may
choose to pursue mediation as an
alternative remedy under Section
120.573 before the deadline for fil-
ing a petition. Choosing mediation
will not adversely affect the right to
a hearing if mediation does not re-
sult in a settlement. The procedures
for pursuing mediation are set forth
below.


A person may pursue mediation by
reaching a mediation agreement
with all parties to the proceeding
(which include the applicant, the
Department, and any person who
has filed a timely and sufficient pe-
tition for a hearing) and by showing
how the substantial interests of each
mediating party are affected by the
Department's action or proposed ac-
tion. The agreement must be filed
in (received by) the Office of Gen-
eral Counsel of the Department at
3900 Common-wealth Boulevard,
Mail Station 35, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000, by the same
deadline as set forth above for the
filing of a petition.

The agreement to mediate must in-
clude the following:
(a) The names, addresses, and
telephone numbers of any persons
who may attend the mediation;
(b) The name, address, and tele-
phone number of the mediator se-
lected by the parties, or a provision
for selecting a mediator within a
specified time;
(c) The agreed allocation of the
costs and fees associated with the
mediation;
(d) The agreement of the parties
on the confidentiality of discussions
and documents introduced during
mediation;
(e) The date, time, and place of
the first mediation session, or a
deadline for holding the first ses-
sion, if no mediator has yet been
chosen;
(f) The name of each party's
representative who shall have the
authority to settle or recommend
settlement;
(g) Either an explanation of how
the substantial interests of each me-
diating party will be affected by the
action or proposed action addressed
in this notice of intent or a state-
ment clearly identifying the petition
for hearing that each party has al-
ready filed, and incorporating it by
reference; and
(h) The signatures of all parties
or their authorized representatives.

As provided in Section 120.573 of
the Florida Statutes, the timely
agreement of all parties to mediate
will toll the time limitations im-
posed by Sections 120.569 and
120.57 for requesting and holding an
administrative hearing. Unless oth-
erwise agreed by the parties, the me-
diation must be concluded within
sixty (60) days of the execution of
the agreement. If mediation results
in settlement of the administrative
dispute, the Department must en-
ter a final order incorporating the
agreement of the parties. Persons
whose substantial interest will be
affected by such a modified final
decision of the Department have a
right to petition for a hearing only
in accordance with the requirements
for such set forth above, and must
therefore file their petitions within

ICE CUBE


from 1-C


and action adventures ("Ana-
conda," "Ghosts of Mars").
With "Are We There Yet?"
Cube gets family friendly. In
the comedy, Cube portrays
Nick, a kid-averse playboy
who tries to impress Suzanne
(Nia Long), a single mother,
by offering to transport her
kids from Portland, Ore., to
Vancouver, British Columbia.
What Nick doesn't know is
that Suzanne's children think
no man is good enough for
their mom and will do every-
thing they can to make the
trip a nightmare for him.
What starts as a quick and
easy delivery turns ugly as
the kids concoct new ways to
drive Nick crazy.
Aleisha Allen ("School of
Rock") and Philip Daniel
Bolden ("Johnson Family Va-
cation") are the pint-size
troublemakers who lay waste
to Nick's beloved Lincoln
Navigator.
A father of four, Cube says
he could relate to the
unpredictability and re-
sourcefulness of the children.
As a celebrity dad, he has to
exercise an extra amount of
discipline and control over his
children (ages 4-19) to ensure
they stay grounded.
Cube thought it was time
he made a movie that he
could show his younger chil-
dren. But the Like Nick, a
sports collectibles and memo-
rabilia dealer, Cube has a few
prized possessions he has
amassed over the years: a
Dallas Cowboys cap signed by
Emmitt Smith, a pair of
sneakers signed by Shaquille
O'Neal, and a jersey signed by
Deion Sanders. But his favor-
ite keepsake is a basketball
signed by the legendary
Julius "Dr. J" Irving. "That
ain't going nowhere," he says,
laughing. "I'm going to die
with that in my casket."
Besides the kid-friendly
story, Cube likes the under-
lying message his movie
sends to would-be "playas."

"Sometimes guys just want
the girl and want to drop off
the kids," he observes, "but,
this tells guys that [a single
mom] is a package deal."
At 35, Cube has come a
long way from the authority-
defying persona of his early
rap days. He was one of the'
original members of N.W.A.,
a group that scored big with,
its 1988 debut "Straight
Outta Compton." Cube quit
the group a year later and
quickly established himself
as one of rap's most talented
but controversial artists. His
hit albums include "Lethal
Injection," "Bootlegs & B-
Sides," "The Predator" and
"Amerikkka's Most Wanted."
His often violent and profane
rhymes drew criticism as well
as support for the brutal hon-
esty of his words. Together
with Mack-10 and WC he
formed the group Westside
Connection, whose second al-
bum, "Terrorist Threat," was
released in 2003.
He continues to juggle his
music and movie career.
Though he has softened his
rap image for movie audi-
ences, he insists he hasn't
abandoned his rap fan base
and takes issue with those
who have criticized the cross-
over of rappers into filmmak-
ing.
Next up, he stars in the
action thriller "XXX: State of
the Union," the sequel to the
Vin Diesel starrer "XXX." He
threw himself into the ac t ion
role literally coming
home each night with cuts
and bruises after insisting on
doing his own stunts. "I was!
up to the challenge and physi-,
cally ready," he says.
Looking ahead, he want;
to continue to surprise audi-
ences with different aspect-.
of his talent. "It definitely i.
going to swing back to the
hard-core stuff," he promi-ses'
"Whatever the project!
whether action movie, fa mn i
movie or music, I'm going t
pour all of myself into it."
