Kenneth Pridgen says



"Hit List" just a rumor


By TIANA LARSEN
Before beginning his
scheduled presentation at
last week's South Walton


PRIDGEN


Community Council meeting,
Board of County Commission
(BCC) Chair Kenneth
Pridgen took the opportunity
to address a so-called "hit
list" of county employees al-
legedly targeted for dis-
missal.
Pridgen said that after a
BCC meeting earlier in the
week, three people, including
one reporter, asked him
about the list. "I don't know
where these rumors started,"
he said.
One person on the alleged
list, Dr. Susan Turner, former
director of the Walton County
Health Department, has left
her position with the county.
A second person, Gary
Vorbeck, county attorney, has


resigned but will remain in
his position temporarily
while the county seeks a new
attorney.
"They left on their own will
as far as I know their leav-
ing was a shock to me,"
Pridgen said, noting that'
county employees often leave
for better opportunities.
He added that he has spo-
ken to two others on the list,
Kriss Titus, director of the
Tourist Development Coun-
cil, and Bill Imfeld, finance
director, and told them he
does not know where this
talk is coming from. "I
wanted to set that clear," he
concluded.
A number, of local media
outlets, including the Herald


Breeze, other newspapers,
and radio and television sta-
tions, have been contacted in
recent weeks regarding the
alleged list. An email has
been circulating around
town, which names three
other current county staff
members, in addition to
Vorbeck, Turner, Titus and
Imfeld.
The additional three are
Ken Little, Citizen Services
Director; Sara Comander,
Public Information Coordina-
tor; and Gary Mattison, Hu-
man Resources director.
The writer of the email al-
leges the list originated with
Ken Pridgen and was circu-
lated by Ronnie Bell, county
administrator.


Freeport hires city planner


By BEN GRAFTON
Latilda Henninger ap-
peared before the council'at
its meeting of Jan. 27 as an
applicant for the city
planner's job advertised by
the city. She told the council
that she is currently a senior
planner for Walton County
and has experience with ev-
ery aspect of the job and is
confident she would be an
asset to the city. Council-
woman Jean Arrant ex-
pressed concern that the to-
tal annual cost of the posi-
tion, including benefits,
would be $50,00.0. Council-
man Earl King said that the
city was already spending
that much for the services of
Paul Miller of the West
Florida Regional Planning
Council. King said he
thought the city had to have
a full-time planner to sPay on
top of 'the expansion taking
place. It was also noted that
developers would pay for the
costs. The council agreed and
unanimously approved hir-
ing Henninger.

City Attorney Clayton
Adkinson presented the sec-
ond reading of proposed
changes to the land deVelop-
ment code, which now in-
cludes the duties of a Plan-
ning Board which will review
development projects and
recommend appropriate ac-
tions for council approval.
The council approved an or-
dinance incorporating the
changes.
With Arrant abstaining be-
cause of possible conflict of
interest, the council ap-
proved a motion to transmit
a draft of a large scale
amendment to the compre-


hensive plan to the Rural De-
velopment office for review
and comment. The amend-
ment covers the proposed.
Freeport residential develop-
ment west of U.S. 331 N.
near Bourbon Street.
Mayor Mickey Marse re-
ported that the work on the
North Bay Water System for
Choctaw Beach and Villa
Tasso is coming along fine.
He also said that a comple-
tion deadline will be estab-
lished for the contractor and
if work is not finished by that
date then the city will seek
damages.
City Engineer Charles Pe-
ters reported that the city
must commence work to re-
locate water mains that are
in the construction zone of
the new U.S. 331 by-pass. Pe-
ters said it will not be neces-
sary to relocate any sewer
lines. Even though the by-
pass is a Florida DOT project,
the city will have to bear the
cost of relocating the mains.
Peters proposed advertising
for bids with bid openings
scheduled for the second
regular council meeting in
March.
Peters also reported that
the sewage collection and
transfer system, serving the
area north of town is a 1980s
design that is inadequate for
the demands resulting from
developments planned for
this area. A workshop will be
scheduled to review details.
Adkinson reported that a
pretrial conference has been
scheduled in a claim made by
Willy Jack Danley that his
home was flooded because of
a faulty gate valve.
Adkinson also suggested
consideration of a policy for


processing requests for an-
nexation only once every'60
to 90 days. He said that all
requests for annexation must
be accompanied by a written
letter and a copy of the deed
for every property requesting
annexation.
County Commissioner
Scott Brannon spoke to the
council and asked them to ap-
point one of their members to
serve as a representative on
a proposed "coalition board".
This board would serve as a
tool for discussing problems
and improving communica-
tions within the county.
Initially it would be made
up of appointed representa-
tives from the county com-
mission, the city councils of
DeFuniak Springs, Freeport
and Paxton, and the Walton
County School Board.
Brannon said representa-
tives of the Sheriffs Depart-
ment and the offices of the
constitutional officers would
probably be added later if the
proposal proves beneficial.
Members of the Freeport
Council agreed with the idea
and appointed Arrant as
their representative.
Marse reported that he ap-
peared before the county
commissioners and asked for
money to construct the bay
sewer project. He said the
commissioners agreed to pro-
vide a loan to the city. Marse
also said that he had told the
commissioners that he hoped
to have the first phase of
the project operational in one
year. The council approved a
motion to have Peters pro-
ceed with the project.
Adkinson and the county at-
torney will meet to work out
the details of the financial


arrangement.
Peters recommended
scheduling a public hearing
to discuss the details of the
bay sewer project with poten-
tial users. Included would be
discussions of how the sys-
tem will work and what it
will cost the users.
King reported receiving
complaints about the school
bus shelter project presented
at the last meeting. County
Manager Ronnie Bell, who
was present, told the council
that the shelters were put on
state rights-of-way, and due
to this, the county has no ju-
risdiction in the issue.
The Florida Department of
Transportation is the manag-
ing body. Objections are that
the shelters are really just
bill boards at ground level
and they, are not placed
where students meet the bus-
ses. The city will review this
issue and the similar public
bench issue to determine if
they violate applicable sign
ordinances.
The contentious recurring
issue of naming roads in the
industrial park came up
again. This time Bell said
that the industrial park was
within the city limits and
that the council had the' right
to name its own roads. It was
agreed that the council would
ask the high school students
to pick a name for, a road in
the industrial park.

Consultant Jack Rhodes
told the council that meet-
ings were scheduled with the
designers for the park in the
Freeport 860 LLC develop-
ment. They plan to meet with
the council in February to re-
view and discuss the design.


Couple risks losing home due to builder error


By DOTTY NIST
The day before the sched-
uled closing on their first
home, Sarah and Michael
Damon got a rude awaken-
ing.
The young couple was told
that their home, located in
Waterview Cove off Bay Loop
Road in Freeport, had been
constructed extending
slightly less than two feet
into the required 20-foot
front setback for the lot.
Without'a variance from Wal-
ton County, the home could
not remain in the setback
and the closing could not pro-
ceed.
They had entered into a


contract with builder Henry
Company Homes, Inc. for the
home and lot in a package
deal. They had waited 13
months for the home to be
built.
After the closing was sus-
pended, the Damons were
told, according to Sarah, that
the builder had been un-
aware of the mistake and
that the home had passed
county inspection.
Appearing before the Wal-
ton County Zoning Board of
Adjustment (ZBA) on Jan.
27, Michael said he, Sarah
and their 18-month daughter
were being allowed to live in
the home, by signed contract,


without charge, pending the
county's consideration of a
"waiver" (variance.)
Michael said the couple's
purchase contract on the
home would terminate in the
absence of a variance. "If
there's no waiver, we have to
get out in five days," he told
the board members.
"We'll be homeless," Sarah
said.
"This is our life," she
added.
No one representing the
builder was present at the
variance hearing. It was the
couple's opinion that the
builder did not care one way
or the other whether the vari-


ance was granted.
The Damons knew they
had gotten a "good deal" with
their contract, and that prop-
erty values in the area had
risen sharply since the time
of their purchase agreement.
They knew that if they were
not able to close, the property
could be sold for much more,
to the financial advantage of
the builder, even if the home
had to be torn down.
Several of the Damons'
neighbors were present to
support their request for a
variance.
"They will lose their home

Team works



to enhance



traffic safety


By TIANA LARSEN
The Walton County Corn-'
munity Traffic Safety Team
(CTST) is sponsored by the
Florida Department of
Transportation. The team is
made up of law enforcement
and emergency medical ser-
vices professionals, local city
and county officials, and pri-
vate citizens.
Their mission is to reduce
vehicle crash rates and to
improve emergency vehicle
response times through road
improvements, public educa-
tion and law enforcement.
The CTST wants the pub-
lic to be aware of the team in
order to enlist their help in
bringing traffic safety prob-
lems and solutions to their
attention.
A form called an "action
item form" is available to citi-
zens, who will find it on the
reverse side of a brochure
describing the CTST. The
brochure is available in
county offices, law enforce-
ment offices and libraries.
The public is also invited to
attend the meetings, which
are held on the fourth
Wednesday of the month at
10 a.m. at the Emergency
Operations Center on Davis
Lane in DeFuniak Springs.
At the January meeting,
team members looked over
the annual report, which cov-
ers the projects and activities
for the previous year.
In order to request funds
from the Department of
Transportation, a project
must be on a list of priorities
established by the CTST.
Five priority projects have
been established.
A letter has been sent to
the state requesting funding
for mile markers on all-roads
in Walton County. These
would help first responders
to more quickly locate emer-
gencies.
Pre-emptive traffic signals
on U.S. 98 would allow emer-
gency vehicles to remotely
control the lights. A grant
could not be found for this
project, but the county had


added it to the budget for the
public works department for
2005.
A bike path is planned in
Paxton, to go around the lake
and connect to the path on
the Alabama side of the lake.
The county will apply for a
grant to at least get this
started, said Angie Biddle,
grants coordinator for Wal-
ton County.

Also planned is a bypass
rou.e 'in Choctaw Beach, on
the north side of Choctaw
Beach, for emergency and
evacuation purposes.
*A flashing beacon is
planned at the concrete plant
on SR-20 in Villa Tasso, and
the CTST will ask for funds
to install a turn lane on Hwy.
90 at Woodyard Road.
There had been an addi-
tional priority item, a turn
lane on US.331 at Rock Hill
Road. This .has been placed
in the DOT's work plan. The
team also is tracking several
items that are currently in
the works.
At their January meeting,
Biddle discussed potential
grants available from DOT
for non-cons.truction related
safety areas. Some examples
are alcohol prevention, speed
monitoring signs, bicycle
safety education and public
awareness. The. Walton
County Sheriff Office ex-
pressed a need for a radar
display trailer, and a citizen
noted that there is still a
need in the county for child
car seats.
A reporter also submitted
a new action item form, a re-
quest for sidewalks on Wal-
ton Road and Hwy. 83 to Wal-
ton Road This will be for-
warded to county engineer-
ing and added to the team's
tracking list.
Ken Wilde, beach manage-
ment director, discussed on-
going problems with golf
carts and motorized vehicles
on the CR-30A bike path.
The next meeting is set for
Feb. 23; the public is wel-
come .to attend.

tricting Committee will meet

By BRUCE COLLIER
DeFuniak Springs Police
arrested DeFuniak resident
John Winton Sims, 78, on
January 26. Sims was booked
with battery on a 43 year-old
woman. The incident that led
to that arrest allegedly took
place on November 29, 2004,
at the Lake Yard in DeFu-
niak Springs, the site of the
Christmas Reflections light
display. The complainant
stated that Sims touched her
breast and buttock and
kissed her on the mouth.
On January 27, Sims was
again arrested by the Walton
County Sheriff in connection
with a battery that allegedly
occurred in July of 2004, in


, the backyard of Sims' resi-
dence. According to the of-
fense report, Sims allegedly
kissed a 13-year-old girl on
the mouth. The girl eventu-
ally told her parents, who
brought her to Sheriff's in-
vestigators, where she made
a statement and complaint.
Sims was arrested and
booked with misdemeanor
first degree battery. A court
date of March 16, 2005 has
been set.
Earlier this month, Sims
was charged with two counts
of attempted lewd and las-
civious molestation of a 15-
year-old female. Those inci-
dents allegedly occurred in
late December. Sims is out on
bond in all three cases.

best phlebotomist, which happened to be a black woman,
have to make a decision to/leave her job to further her edu-
cation and nobody called the owner of the hospital to say
how important it is to 'keep her. I watched an 18-year old
black female be arrested at the high school for a crime that
she should have never went to jail for and there Was no out-
cry from the community about her unjust arrest. I watched,
a black male senior who waited until I came home to find
out the process he needed to take to apply for a four-year
college because he couldn't get help anywhere else.
What has happened to our .community? When did we be-
come more focused on gossip and less interested in the young
people in our community? Each year during Black History
Month, we talk about great black leaders of our past who
paved the way for African-Americans to have better life.
We talk about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s famous "I have a
dream" speech but don't do anything to keep the dream alive.
1 is time to stop talking about the dream and make it a
reality.
"Walton County, at least during Black History Month, do
something to help our community and not hurt it. Commit
to only speaking positive things about each other at a mini-
mum during Black History Month. I have made my pledge
not just for Black History Month, but for the year. I have
partnered with two grant writers in Bay County to write for
grant funding to bring projects into Florida's panhandle to
increase the graduation rate of young black fimales and de-
crease the number of black males incarcerated. Why do I
still care about a city I,no longer live in? Because it will
always be home and I want to be able to say I've done my
part to make DeFuniak a better place.,
What makes my editorial controversial? Publicly speak-
ing out about the things that are wrong in our community.
I'm sure someone will write an editorial out of retaliation.
Chances are-that will be the person that does too little, but
gossips too much. Just stay angry enough to make a differ-
ence.
What can you do?' Organize black vote projects, help a
church open a day care center, develop an ongoing program
to keep young black males off the street, support our gospel
recording artist and our fitness instructor, let Healthmark
know wie can't, loose our phlebotomist,. or just have a kind
word to say to your fellow brother. This Black History Month,
commit to making a difference.

Editor,
A couple of years ago a small neighborhood group in De-
Funiak Springs came together for the primary purpose of
advocating positive things for our city. All of their efforts
were directed to bring a public focus on two major issues
that impacted the lives of city residents.
We are all aware of the outcome on the old hospital. We
are now aware the county jail issue has turned in a differ-
ent direction. It does pay for citizens to get involved in gov-
ernment. Now and then government actually hears what
the public is saying they want for their community. Elec-
tions make 4" difference as well.
.. Some months, ago tl~lpd.ard.fl.C.ounty CmQjision-
. ers heard the public and took a positive step to eliminate a
."neighborhood blight when they removed the old hospital,.
Last week, the new Board of County Commissioners heard
the public again when they made the decision to locate the
new jail where it should be, outside DeFuniak Springs.
Of the two issues, the really big one was the jail. That
would impact the city of DeFuniak Springs like nothing else
for decades to come. Removal of a massive penal structure
as the architectural center of focus in the city should have
been a no-brainer. The new BCC saw it that way and did
the right thing.
People come and go in politics. That's the way it is. How-
ever, I wish to offer my appreciation and thanks to both the
old and the new county commissioners who did the right
thing for my home town, DeFuniak Springs.

Editor:
Entering into the twenty-second century, the world is
changing rapidly as the speed of light, it seems. We in
America are and have been a high tech-society, and sur-
vival depends upon all leaders of our country to be one.step
ahead of highly technical knowledge and ability of leader-
ship.
I believe our local and all other leaders of county govern-
ment should be required to have a masters degree from an
credited university in business management,, litigation law,
human resources, maybe some studies in engineering and
political science over-all, and perhaps they do already have
these degrees..
Our local leaders of county government in Walton County
will experience many serious problems and challenges in
the near future, as Walton county continues to expand in
population, and it may become imperative for our leaders
to stay abreast issues before the issues present themselves.
My personal opinion is that having these degrees would
be in the best interest of everyone, leaders and citizens.

Editor:
As time goes by, I hear news that makes me wonder if this
is the same nation founded nearly two centuries, one score,
and nine years ago. How did America change?
America has changed because of one, reason: we sat back
and did not protect it. However, I am impressed at the over-
whelming support showed for the Federal Marriage Amend-
ment in the House, although it did not pass in the Senate.
This shows that we can and should use our influence to make
a difference.
Now we can take a look at another issue: elections. Long
ago we only had paper ballots. Now we have complicated
electronic touch-screen voting machines. In colonial days
only male church members could vote. Now convicts, illegal
aliens, and even the dead vote.
According to the American Free Press, George W. Bush
received 4,258 votes in the Franklin County precinct of
Gahanna, Ohio--where only 628 people actually voted! In
Carteret County, North Carolina, 4,438 votes vanished when
storage space ran out on a machine to store electronic votes.
Of course, these cases are not the only ones. This happens
all the time where electronic voting machines are used. I
am happy to know that not all votes are done electronically.
One might think that electronic machines are accurate.
Think again! We must go back to the old "safe" way.

*IAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 2005



Editor,
I am not an architect. I am not an engineer, and regret-
table, not a financial wizard. I am a citizen and taxpayer of
long standing in Walton County.
This business of the county jail expansion was studied from
stem to stern before embarking on the building and now "stay
of execution." On the 25th of January I was in DeFuniak
Springs and decided to drive down to the jail and take a
look. The huge steel beams of a building already occupied
the area where the old jail (not the preserit jail) stood, with
several workers present and building,materials all over the
place.
I don't have to tell you all this tearing down and reposi-
tioning will take a lot of money, and it is like throwing it
down a rat hole. Furthermore, it reflects badly on the BCC
regardless of who were members at the time new construc-
tion was initiated.
Casey Brooks, a columnist of the NW Florida Daily News
called the present construction a "fiasco." Maybe so, but
before the BCC authorizes contractors to descend on the
newly-erected structure with 'sledgehammers, cutting
torches, and wrecking balls, some serious thought ought to
be given as to how, the new construction and present 'jail
might best be utilized.
Could the presentjail be used for wo men prisoners? Maybe
close custody prisoners would be the best use since there are
apparently fewer of them? The steel super construction al-
ready erected could possible be completed as an addition to
the court house.
I suspect the old jail was built aboutthe time of the origi-
nal part of the court house. It stood just to the east, it's front
about even with the back of the courthouse. A prisoner was
in easy walking distance of the court room and his trail, cer-
tainly a consideration at the time.
The jail never -eemed to offend the sensibilities of anyone
when it existed. Apparently it was regarded as a natural
part of the justice system then, so what is' the hullabaloo
now?.
I am as serious as a massive heart attack about the BCC
utilizing as much of the mess behind the courthouse as pos-
sible. The demands on the funds of the BCC for road im-
provements and various other projects require no less.

Editor:
Is real reform of our tax system about to become a real-
ity? The answer is probably no, unless a ground-swell, of
citizens ask their elected representatives to support mean-
ingful reform. The tax code now exceeds 60,000 pages caus-
ing taxpayers to spend over 6,000,000,000,(yes six billion),
hours just completing their returns every year. Its complexi-
ties cost the country over $200 billion a 'year, according to
the Tax Foundation. Tax reform of the past usually ended
up adding pages to an already incredibly complicated tax'
code.
These so-called tax reforms usually added to the wealth
of 'tax lawyers and accountants but did little for ordinary
folks. It is time to remove this unfair and unnecessary bur-
den from the back's of the American people. Scrap the en-
iir. a qtuaeq1 tax code and star t from -cr i'h. There. is.

amount of interest in both houses. Some of the things it
would accomplish are as follows:
1. Scrap the entire tax code.
2. Repeal the income tax law
3. Allow citizens to keep 100 percent'6f their paycheck or

4. Eliminate payroll taxes.
5, Eliminate capital gain taxes.
,6. Eliminate the death tax.
7. Eliminate the self employment tax,.
8. Eliminate corporate taxes that always end up in the
cost of consumer goods.
I don't want to be too lengthy in this letter, so I will close
with the following. The old income type of taxation would
be replaced with one simple and fair tax on goods and ser-
vices. The amount of that tax is thought to be 23 percent
with no tax charged on used goods. Currently, we are being
double-taxed numerous items. However .we would not be

Back in October 2004, we (Crowder Chapel Cemetery)
discovered that someone had vandalized and removed the
bronze grave markers from all military veteran's graves.
This was reported to' the sheriff's office and so far, no infor-
mation has come forth. When I last .contacted the depart-
ment, they explained they felt it w as' iais doing this.
On Tuesday, January 11, the Daily News reported the same
type incident at the Oak Park Memoiial Cemetery. The es-
tablished value of those bronze pieces..-were $1,200.
One can assume that if someone stealing these bronze
markers for the metal value, then someone has to be pur-
chasing same. i ''
If this is kids committing this act, then they should be
caught and punished. Is this the respect we allow to be shown
to dead veterans? Are we not in a war today with soldiers
dying daily? Check on your dead comrades. Walt Bell

.itor,
Mr. Bush wants China, North Korea and Iran to give up
all of their nuclear weapons. I have an answer to this prob-
lem and I am not the President of the United States. My
answer is why don't we make a t reaty with all the countries
who have nuclear weapons? If they are willing to destroy
all of their nuclear weapons, then the United States will
destroy all of our nuclear weapons.
China, North Korea and Iran are not governed by people
who are stupid. They are not going to give up all of their
nuclear weapons untilwve give up ours. We.have no right to
make them by force, as long as there is no threat of war.
God gave this land we call the United States and He is not
going to let any .person or country destroy His creation. If,
we really trusted in our Christian faith, we would not be
worried about nuclear weapons. We must be like the people
in the bible who put their trust and lives in God's hands. So
stop talking about it, and start praying about it. God is the
answer, not Mr. Bush. Lawrence P. Lewis

Combs and Campbell deaths listed as Homicide/suicide


By BRUCE COLLIER
Following autopsies by the
Medical Examiner, DeFu-
niak Springs Police have
listed the deaths of DeFuniak
Springs residents Rose
Combs and Hubbard
Campbell as, respectively, a
homicide and suicide. In a
brief press release dated
January 27, DFS Police Chief
Ray Burgess cites the M.E.'s
finding that Combs "died as
the result of a single gunshot
wound to the head in front of
the left ear." According to
Burgess's report, The M.E.
further found that Campbell
"died as the result of a single


gunshot wound to the mid-
left chest."

The conclusion of the au-
topsy is that Combs' death
was a homicide, and
Campbell's a suicide. The
DFS Police are listing them
as such.
On November 28,'2004,
police responded to 911 emer-
gency calls at both Combs'
and Campbell's residences.'
In the case of Combs, the
call was made by her teen-
aged daughter. In the case of
Campbell, it was made by a
friend of the family, who dis-
covered Campbell's body in
his bedroom. No weapon was


round at the scene of Combs'
death. According to the re-
porting person at Campbell's
residence, the only gun on
the scene was a "pistol in a
holster."

Police investigators state,
however; that a pistol was
found to the right of the bed,
on a dresser immediately
next to the bed. From the
position of Campbell's body
on the floor, it appears that
he was seated at the foot of
the bed, when he fired the
pistol with his right hand. It
appears that Campbell may
have risen to his feet after
firing, then fell to the floor,


where he was found. The con-
tents of a handwritten note,
found on Campbell's bed, led
investigators to conclude
that the deaths were con-
nected. The police have de-
clined to release the contents
of the note, except to state
that the note appears to have
been written by Campbell.
Police are still awaiting the
results of toxicology reports
on both persons before for-
mally closing the case. An
investigating officer stated
that police are satisfied that
Campbell was solely respon-
sible for Combs' death, and
are not looking for another
shooter.

Rotary Club


hosts speaker

Captain Fosmoe


Captain Damien Fosmoe
briefed the Rotary Club mem-
bers and guests about the
ranger training located on
Eglin AFB, recently.
Fosmoe received his com-
mission in the infantry in
1996 from the U.S. Military
Academy at West Point. He
assumed command of Alpha
Company, 6th Ranger Train-
ing Battalion, in May 2003
and has led the company
through 19 ranger classes.
According to Fosmoe, the
class is designed to train lead-
ers to lead in ground combat
in varied terrain under var-
ied high-stress conditions.'
Prior to reporting to Eglin,
each class spends just under
three weeks each at Ft.
Benning, GA and Camp
Merrill, GA. In addition to
training the elite, the school
accepts limited numbers of
foreign army officers and
noncommissioned officers.
The captain feels this helps
the Army in earning respect
in the foreign countries by
offering the opportunity to
train and interact with the
rangers at a premier school.
The training on Eglin is
tough and potentially danger-
ous. Several of the first
classes are about snakes, sur-
vival, and medical treatment.
Throughout the 20 days, the
men eat two meals a day and
may only get two to three
hours of sleep each night.
This is while they are walk-
ing two to six miles every day
and carrying a ruck sack on
their backs weighing between
80-110 pounds. The various
training operations are based
on real-life scenarios and may
be typical to those found in
Afghanistan or Iraq.
The rangers learn to pre-
pare and cross deep creeks
with rope bridges, conduct
airborne night operations

Federal flood insurance

now available in Paxton


The Town of Paxton has
joined over 20,000 communi-
ties nationwide who. are al-
lowed to purchase federally
backed flood insurance. This
availability follows the
community's adoption and
enforcement of ordinances to
reduce flood losses and accep-
tance by the National Flood
Insurance Program (NFIP).
The Town of Paxton,is eli-
gible to participate in the
NFIP effective December 16,
2004. Residents of the Town
of Paxton will be able to pur-
chase flood insurance up to
the limits under the Regular
Phase of the program. How-
ever, there is a 30-day wait-
ing period before the flood
insurance coverage goes into
effect. For single family


homes, this limit is $250,000
and $100,000 for the con-
tents. Renters can also pro-
tect their belongings through
the contents coverage. For
commercial properties this
limit is $500,000.
Lenders must require bor-
rowers whose property is lo-
cated in a designated flood
hazard area to purchase flood
insurance as a condition of
receiving a federally backed
mortgage loan in accordance
with the Federal Disaster
Protection Plan of 1973.
The NFIP is implemented
through the Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency.
There are over 4 million flood
insurance policies in the more
than 20,000 participating
communities nationwide.

Florida SHOTS
Immunization Registry now
available to private providers


The Florida Department
of Health (DOH) announces
that Florida SHOTS, the
State Health Online Track-
ing System for immuniza-
tions, is now available to pri-
vate health care providers
throughout the state.
Florida SHOTS was devel-
oped by the DOH to increase
childhood immunization lev-
els and eliminate vaccine-
preventable diseases. The
Florida Legislature autho-
rized the free, statewide elec-
tronic immunization registry,
which is beneficial to both
parents and providers. Addi-
tionally, Florida SHOTS
helps interpret complex im-
munization schedules, and
will soon help manage vac-
cine inventories and gener-
ate reminder recalls.
All children need 18 to 23
immunizations by age six to
protect them from serious
but preventable diseases.

technology program will be
held Feb. 9 at 6 p.m. in room

The Walton County Education Association and the Wal-
ton County School Board named their Educational Support
Professional and Teacher of the Year in a ceremony held at
the Freeport High School Auditorium on Thursday, Janu-
ary 27.
Kristen Rhodes, a third-year English teacher at Walton
High School, was selected as the 2006 Walton County
Teacher of the Year. Rhodes, who graduated from Walton
High and the University of West Florida, was happily sur-
prised at being selected. "This is the last thing I expected.
I am speechless. I am sitting up here (on stage) with many
of the teachers that I attended school with as a student,"
Rhodes commented.
Rhodes echoed the sentiments of many of the teachers in'
saying that watching a student grasp the concept of En-
glish and reading skills makes the effort worthwhile.
Rhodes, who teaches freshmen and sophomores at Walton
High, loves to read and is a big fan of author Bailey White's,
Mama Makes Up Her Mind: And Other Dangers of South-
ern Living. The book chronicles what life is like growing up
in a small southern town and accounts of Southern eccen-
tricity.
Walton High Principal Mike Davis commends Kristen for
her hard work in three years at the school. "The great thing
about Kristen is that she is able to communicate with all
her students in a way that is beyond her years of experi-
ence. She reaches all types of kids and is not intimidated
by them even though she is only 24 years of age. She runs a
tight classroom, but the kids always seem eager to work
when they get in there."
Becky Hurley, who works at the DeFuniak Springs Bus
Shop, was chosen as the 2005 Education Support Profes-
sional of the Year.

*CHEMISTIOY.


Although Hurly could not attend the Thursday night cer-
emony, Transportation Director Mac Work said she spent
all day Friday alternately laughing and crying with joy over
the honor.
"I was stunned," she said. "I never expected that to hap-
pen. I was honored just to be nominated."
Anyone who spends more than a few minutes with Becky
Hurly can tell she feels strongly about her job, which is to
help coordinate bus routes, help drivers, meet with parents
and drive a daily bus route herself something she's done
for the last 24 years for the Walton County School District.
"Bottom line is safety. Our job is to make sure that kids
get to and from school safely. Of course, we try to make it a
pleasant ride, too," she said.
Hurly says she's often recognized by students and chil-
dren who remember riding her bus. "It's so nice to be re-
membered," she said.
"It takes everyone from the bus driver to the cafeteria
worker and maintenance staff on up to the teachers and prin-
cipals to help make sure a child gets a good education. I
work with such a great bunch of people, too. They're truly
wonderful, so it's a special honor to have been chosen," she
said.
Mac Work said he was delighted that Hurly was chosen
because she is so deserving of the honor. "She handles every
task without complaint and with grace, calm and efficiency.
They don't come any better than her."

OPEN DOOR CLUB MEMBERS enjoying the annual birthday party.



Open Door birthday party celebration held


By SALLY ORLOSKY
Twins, triplets, quadru-
plets and even septuplets
share a birthday party, but
what is it called when 45
people share a birthday
party? It is the Open Door
Annual Birthday Party for
the entire Club. 2005 was no
different than any other year
except that each year the
party gets bigger. The RHD
ladies had beautifully deco-
rated the entire room with
banners, balloons, horns,
flowers and birthday center-
pieces. A large cake decorated
with lots and lots of pink


roses and white frosting was
inscribed "Happy Birthday
Open Door."
After a delicious luncheon,
president, Carleita Levy
called the meeting to order
and welcomed guest, Sharon
Kust. The secretary's and
treasurer's reports were read
and approved. Ms. Levy then
called upon Club member,
Jane Wright, who gave a pre-
sentation on the upcoming
Chautauqua Winter Assem-
bly 2005 to, be held on two
successive weekends: Feb.
24-27 and March 3-6.
Wright explained that at


the events, there will be Civil
War enactments with fed-
eral, Confederate and civil-
ian encampments; daily
walking tours of Victorian
homes, guided architectural
home tours; chess tourna-
ments-speed tournaments
and croquet tournaments as
well as art, porcelain and
quilt shows and pilates
classes.
Also being held: are semi-
nars on art, music, history,
humor, building relation-
ships, aquatic preserves,
travel, famous authors, phi-
losophy, scrap booking, reli-


gion, crafts, health issues,
wildlife, terrorism, Walton
County archaeology, contem-
porary poetry, residential
design and construction,
home-schooling, mosaics,
writing, historic preserva-
tion, finance, free dance les-
sons and many, many more
topics.
She also said that there is
a great need for volunteers to
serve as hosts/hostesses, etc.
at the various seminars and
that volunteers are rewarded
by receiving free or dis-
counted tickets to some of the
events.

mation regarding the semi-
nars, events or volunteering,

Club members than sang
Happy Birthday and were
eager to exchange birthday
gifts. As the names were
drawn from the basket, mem-
bers, one-by-one, went over
to the gift table and selected
their brightly-wrapped gift.
After members finished

Walton


opening their gifts, the birth-
day cake was enjoyed by all.
Drawings were then held
for the door prizes which
were kindly provided by the
RHD ladies and were won by
Lora Bddiford, Sharon Kust,
Sally Orlosky, Barbara
McLellan, Mary Guice and
Gaye Wambles.

The Value of Always Praying
By Dr. Robert M. Jaye

What multitudes of prayers we have put up to the Lord
from the first moment we learned to pray! Our first prayer
was a prayer for ourselves. We asked that God would have
mercy on us and blot out our sins. He heard us. When He
blotted out our sins as a cloud, we had more prayers for our-
selves.
We had to pray for holy grace to prepare us for God's work,
for constraining and restraining grace. We have been led to
crave for a fresh assurance of faith, for complete application
of the promises given to us, for deliverance in the hour of
temptation, and for help in the hour of trial.
We have been compelled to go to God for our souls, as a
constant beggar asking for everything. Believers can bear
witness that we have never been able to get anything from
any other source. All the good things our souls have eaten
have come from heaven, and all the water which our souls
have drunk have flowed from the living Rock-Christ Jesus
our Lord. Our souls have never grown rich in themselves.
We have daily depended upon the bounty of our L6rd.. Thus
our prayers have ascended to heaven for a range of mercies
all but infinite.
We always have cause to say, "I love the Lord, because He
has heard the voice of my supplications." As our prayers
have been many, so also have been God's answers to them.
He has heard us in the day of trouble, has strengthened us
and helped us. He helped when we tremibled and doubted at
the mercy, seat. Remember this, and let it fill our hearts
with gratitude to God. He'has graciously heard our poor,
weak prayers. "Bless the Lord, 0 my soul; and'forget not all
His benefits."


Stephane went on to further
his theological education at

nary in Decatur, GA.

insulated from all sound and fully protected from the
enemy.
I will meet you there, and I will give you rest.
I will remove your old equipment and "make all things
new."
You have been wounded in the battle, my soldier. Your
wounds are not visible, but you have received grave in-
ternal injuries.
You need to be healed.
I will heal you.
You have been weakened in the battle. You need to be
strengthened.
I will strengthen you and be your strength.
I will instill in you confidence and ability.
My words will rekindle within you a renewed love,
zeal and enthusiasm.

The latest in

healthcare information


In February, North
Okaloosa Medical Center
and Healthy Woman are
kicking off a new monthly
program called Brown Bag
Lunch and Learn to benefit
men and women residing- in
Okaloosa and Wa1t-onr coon-'
ties. The purpose ofthe pro-
gram is to provide health in-
formation to the commu-
nity on current health issues
that are affecting their com-
munity.
"What a great way to spend
time with your neighbors,
take a lunch break, and learn
something new in
healthcare," said Kim Willis,
director of marketing. "We
encourage everyone to bring
their lunch and spend an
hour with one of North
Okaloosa Medical Center's
physicians or healthcare pro-
fessionals to learn informa-
tion that could be valuable
when their making decisions
for themselves as well as
their families healthcare."
The program is the result
of the success of another bi-
monthly program called,
Healthy Woman. "Our


Healthy Woman programs
are very popular, but we re-
alized that some people can't
make .night meetings due to
family or work. We wanted
to expand the program to
meet ti& heeds of our com-
munity so we're encouraging
men aand women of all ages"
to attend our Brown Bag
Lunch and Learn." said
Willis.,
Due to the overwhelming
response to Dr. Marty
Gagliardi's recent Healthy
Woman presentation, The'
Weekend Warrior How To
Prevent Knee and Shoulder
Injury the program has
been rescheduled as the first
to be offered as a Brown Bag
Lunch and Learn program.

The program will be Thurs-
day, Feb. 10, at noon in the
Senior Circle Classroom lo-
cated at 127-B, Redstone Av-
enue in Crestview. The pro-
gram is free and no reserva-
tions required. If anyone
would like more information,
on the Brown Bag Lunch and
Learn Program call 850-689-

Red Cross declares

critical blood shortage


A slowdown in blood dona-
tions during the winter
months is unfortunately
nothing new. Winter vaca-
tions and irregular routines
seem to distract regular do-
nors from giving. It seems
that the immediate period
(up to 60 days) following New
Year is especially a hard time
to get people to make the
time to give blood. Prema-
ture babies and their moms,
leukemia, sickle cell and can-
cer patients, as well as burn
and trauma victims count on
blood for life.
"We're asking the public
who know they have 0 nega-
tive blood in Alabama, Mis-
sissippi Gulf Coast and the
Florida Panhandle to make
an appointment and donate.
To find a Red Cross center or
blood drive call 1-800-GIVE
LIFE. Donors can also go to
the Red Cross web site at:
www.alacgc.org,.
Patients count on the pub-
lic to give blood everyday, 365
days a year for survival.
Please call soon. 0 negative
blood is the universal blood
donor-anyone can receive
this blood type. That's why it


is so critical. That number
is 1-800-448-3543.
"I am sure that an aware-
ness of the need by the pub-
lic will motivate people to
bring us to a safer situation
in terms of blood availabil-
ity," stated Dr. Ken McMilin,
regional medical director for
Red Cross. Blood Services,
Alabama and Central Gulf
Coast Region. You must be at
least 17 years old, weigh at
least 110 lbs. and be in gen-
eral good health to give blood.

As of today, Red Cross has
backorders for 0- bloodASAP
from hospitals in the Ala-
bama and Central Gulf Coast
Region, which includes Ala-
bama, the Mississippi Gulf
Coast and the Florida Pan-
handle, according to Mark
Harmon, Red Cross director
of product management. 0
negative inventory is very
low, Harmon added.
"Blood donors can give ev-
ery 56 days (8 weeks). We are
asking people to donate blood
today and sponsor a blood
drive where they work, play
or worship," Beddingfield
said.

who were celebrating Home-
coming before a packed
house, saw the girls team
post a 44-25 win while the
boys squad won 73-57.

sweeps

district foes
By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves swept
a pair of important district
games on the road as they
knocked off Pensacola Catho-
lic 42-36 and Panama City,
Arnold 63-41 to improve
their record to 15-6 overall
and 6-2 in District 1, Class
3A play.
Walton claimed their sec-
ond victory of the season over
Pensacola Catholic as Darryl
McGhee scored 12 points.
while J. Leonard added 11 in
the Braves road victory. Wal-
ton forced 24 turnovers from
the Crusaders and the
Braves controlled the boards
to pull out the contest.
Walton avenged a 49-44
loss to Arnold earlier this sea-
son with a 63-41 thrashing of
theMIarlins in Panama City.
Ashton Campbell scored 14
points and Darryl McGhee
powered in 19 as Walton fin-
ished their district slate. The
Braves will be either the top
or second seed in the five-
team district tournament
that will begin on February
:,16.


added 11 of her own to pace
the Pirates. The win was
aided by staunch defense and
rebounding as Malone
missed 48 shots on the night
while the Pirates controlled
the boards with the rebound-
ing of Nikole Hamilton,
Daydra Brown, and Mary
Howes. The win ups the Pi-
rates record to 17-5 heading
into the final week of the
regular season in girls bas-
ketball play.
The boys team trailed


Malone 28-27 at halftime
only to use a 2-3 zone to sty-
mie the Tigers outside shoot-
ing in the second half.
Malone missed 55 shots on
the night as Tyler Hammond
scored 21 points while Devin
Locke added 14 and Will
Scott 13. The Pirates, who
are 16-6 on the year, have
two weeks left in the regular
season before they host the
District 2, Class 2A tourna-
ment beginning on February
15.

. .... A.M


Walton's boys will be a
threat when the District 1,
Class 3A tournament starts
at West Florida Tech on Feb-
ruary 15. The Braves are the
best defensive team in the
area and can score when they
stay out of foul trouble with
Ashton Campbell and Darryl
McGhee. The Walton girls
are struggling to stay afloat,
and, with Pensacola Catho-
lic and Marianna in the dis-
trict, a long shot to qualify.
The South Walton boys will
likely run into Freeport in
the opening round of the Dis-
trict 2, Class 2A tournament
held in Ponce de Leon. The
Seahawks have challenged
the Bulldogs but have not
been able to hold on in the
second half in the regular
season. The winner will
likely get Chipley in the
semifinals and that does not
bode well for either school.
The South Walton girls will
likely run into Mike Myrick's
Lady Bulldogs in the opening
round of the girls district
tournament that will be held
at Holmes County. The win-
ner will have the same prob-
lem as the boys teams, as one
of them will have to beat a
very good Chipley or Ponce
de Leon. team to qualify for
the playoffs.


Ponce de Leon is in good
shape to challenge fo'r play-
off berths in District 2 of
Class 2A. Both teams have
depth problems -but quality
among the starters. An in-
jury to Tyler Hicks could hurt
the Pirates on the boys side
once the playoffs start, but
Stacey Stafford has the head
coaching advantage of being
at home for the district tour-
nament. Vernon will likely
be a solid opponent in the
semifinals while a rematch
with Chipley could be on tap
in the finals. PDL lost a 49-
48 thriller at home to the Ti-
gers on January 4. Tim
Alford's girls basketball team
could get host Holmes
County in the semifinals,
which could make for a tough
contest. Chipley and PDL
are the two best teams,
though, and should square
off for the title.
The likelihood is that two
girls teams and three boys
teams will be the maximum
that our area will get to
qualify for the state tourna-
ment. On paper and on the
court can be quite different,
however, and tournament
time will determine who ad-
vances and who gets ready
for baseball and softball sea-
son.

Greenway jumps forward

with large acquisition


By DOTTY NIST
"This not only shows
progress, more importantly it
shows hope for the
greenway," said Walton
County conservationist M.C.
Davis.
On Feb. 1, Davis, FL, Gov.
Jeb Bush, his Cabinet, and
the state Department of En-
vironmental Protection


(DEP) announced an .agree-
ment for the addition of a
17,302-acre conservation
easement to the Northwest
Florida Greenway project.
* The easement land, all lo-
cated in central Walton
County, is owned by Davis
and makes up part of Nokuse
Plantation, the 53,000-acre
conservation/restoration


THE CONSERVATION EASEMENT created this. week
contains many rare, species, one of those being the Cooley 's
Meadow.Rue plant. According to M.C. Davis, there are only
about 100 of these plants in existence, and about half of those
are on his conservation property. They are found only in the
Pan hi a n dile and in some portions of North Carolina. The con-
servationist plans to attempt to restore this species to a wider
area through controlled burns and seeding on the conserva-
tion property.

area founded by Davis in
2002.
Started in 2003, the North-
west Florida Greenway is an
initiative to assemble a 100-
mile-long undeveloped corri-
dor extending from Eglin Air
Force Base to Gulf and
Franklin counties, for the
dual purposes of national
defense and environmental
conservation. Partners in the
effort include DEP, the De-
partment of Defense, the
Nature Conservancy, the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Ser-
vice, the Department of Corn-.
munity Affairs, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Commis-
sion, the Northwest Florida
Water Management District,
the Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services,
and Okaloosa County.
The new easement runs
along Black Creek and CR-
3280 to the Choctawhatchee
River. Under the agreement,
Davis has, committed to re-
strict use of the property to
the purposes of conservation
and education.
"They're executing the
(Florida Forevei) mandate
that we all voted for...I'm
pleased,"' Davis said of the
state decision. '
Florida Forever is a 10-
year $3 billion land conser-
vation program put in place
by Florida's governor and leg-
islature.
Davis said that finder the
agreement he will receive a
one-time payment of $17 mil-
lion to leave the property,
appraised by the state at $82
million, undeveloped.
$1 million will come from
the Department of Defense

DON BROCK, AN ENGI-
NEER representing developer
C.D. Jones, explains informa-
tion about Boardwalk at 30A,
a residential subdivision that
might replace the South Wal-
ton Athletic Facility, on land
currently occupied by the
Boys and Girls Club of the
Emterald Coast. Brock held a
community meeting for
neighboring property owners
and interested citizens.


Boys and Girls Club property


under contract to developer


By TIANA LARSEN
Whether or not a single-
family residential subdivi-
sion will materialize to take
the place of the hotly-con-
tested South Walton Athletic'
Facility remains to be seen.
At a community meeting
held on Jan. 25 by prospec-
tive developer C.D.Jones to
present plans for a 164-lot
subdivision on the 22 acres
presently occupied by the
Boys and Girls Club, engi-
neer Don Brock was asked if
it was a "done deal" and if the
Boys and Girls Club had sold
the property.
"Well, we're in the process,
and I can't'speak to the Boys
and Girls Club," Brock an-
swered.
Later in the meeting Jones
told neighbors and interested
citizens who turned out for
the meeting that he has a
contractt to do due diligence"
to determine if his develop-
ment is feasible, and the com-
munity meeting was one of
the last steps in the process.
One of thereasons for the
community meeting was to
obtain public input, and judg-


ing by the comments, attend-
ees still had concerns, but
would prefer homes to the
proposed athletic facility.
Two lawsuits have been filed
'to halt construction of the
athletic facility, primarily
because of concerns over sta-
dium lighting, noise and im-
pacts to adjacent Topsail
State Preserve.
"I'm sure they will be nice,
better than 70-foot tall light
poles," commented a resident
of Flamingo.Village, a resi-
dential subdivision located
across the street. She was
referring to the stadium
lighting proposed for three of
the four planned ball fields.
If the project moves for-
ward, it will proceed as, a
"planned unit development,"
or PUD, and consist of two
phases. Phase one, which
Brock said would be built
within a year, will consist of
the 164 lots.

Phase two will be built
later on the southeast corner,
a 1.75-acre commercial area,
and- will include 38,0001
square feet of commercial


space on the ground floor,
,and 14 residential units on
the second floor.
By submitting the plans as
a PUD, the developer may
ask for deviations from the
land development code. Re-
duced side and rear setbacks
are being requested in, the
residential subdivision, as
well as a reduced road width.
The community will be gated,
and will maintain its own
roads.
The small setbacks, just 10
feet from Topsail Preserve's
property boundary, con-
cerned Tommy Ervin, park
manager, who pointed out
that dense vegetation is lo-
cated in the park and could
be hazardous in the event of
a wildfire.
"We want to be good neigh-
bors," said Ervin, who offered
to work with the developer on
landscaping and lighting.
If Jones goes forward with
Boardwalk at 30A, a public
hearing will be held by the
planning commission, as well
as a second public hearing
before the Board of County
Commissioners.


An evening with Ken Pridgen


By TIANA LARSEN
"It is certainly a privilege
to be here tonight," began
Kenneth Pridgeh, chair of
the Walton County Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC). Pridgen was the guest
speaker at the Jan. 27 South
Walton Community Council
meeting, where he spoke to
citizens about topics of inter-
est to him and to the commu-
nity.
Topic one was a new proce-
dure for hearing develop-
ment order applications that
Pridgen would like to see the
county implement in the
near future. The applications
for major developments that
are presently heard by the
planning commission Would
be heard instead by an ad-
ministrative law judge from
the Florida Department of
Administrative Hearings.
(DOAH.) I
The development order ap-
plication process would re-
main essentially the same as
it is now, except that adjacent
property owners and the pub-
lic would be notified sooner
than they are presently. Pub-
lic notice would be provided
when an application is
deemed complete, rather
than shortly before the plan-
ning commission meeting, as
is the case now.
After the application is
complete, the Technical Re-


vieW Committee (made up of
planning staff and represen-
tatives from other county de-
partments) would issue a de-
cision within 60 days. If no
objections are made, the ap-
plication would then go
straight to the BCC for a fi-
nal decision, bypassing a
DOAH hearing.:
However, any interested
party could request a hear-
ing before a law judge, in
which case one would be
scheduled. It would be a
quasi-judicial hearing before
a "special master," a DOAH
hearing officer, and would
require findings of fact and
conclusions of law based on
competent substantial evi-
dence.
The DOAH hearing officer
would then forward a recom-
mended order to the BCC,
who could still overturn the
recommendation, but new
evidence would be needed,
said Kira Coley, county staff
attorney.
Pridgen did not seem to
think that would happen
very often. "By the time it
gets to the BCC it should be
pretty cut and dried," he said.
A draft ordinance for the
new process is being written,
and public workshops and
hearings will be held before
any change takes place.
Topic two was a turtle
lighting ordinance for county


beaches. Last year, after nu-
merous lengthy hearings, a
proposed ordinance failed to
move forward. "We don't need
to lose something God cre-
ated," remarked Pridgen, al-
though he also admitted, "I
don't know what exactly we
need to do."
He said he had been speak-
ing with Brad Pickel, direc-
tor of beach management for
the Tourist Development
Council. The 4.9 miles of
beach slated for
renourishment will need a
lighting study per state
guidelines, and Pridgen sug-
gested extending the study to
cover the entire county's
beachfront.
"We need to find out how
much lighting is actually pro--
truding onto the beach,"
Pridgen said. An audience
member suggested that new
construction should have to
comply as it is built, rather
than have to retrofit later.
Although Pridgen said he
wasn't sure if a voluntary or
a mandatory ordinance was
needed, he did say whatever
is done has to "have some
teeth in it."
Regarding height limita-
tions north of
Choctawhatchee Bay,
Pridgen's third topic, he said
he would like to see the 50-
foot height limitation ex-
tended all the way to the Ala-


bama line.
It is an opportune time to
extend the limitation,
Pridgen thought, now that
development is rapidly mov-
ing northwards within the
county.
(On February 10, the plan-
ning commission will hear
the first reading of an ordi-
nance establishing height
limitations in the entire
county. The meeting is set for
5 p.m. at the South Walton
Annex.)
After his discussion of the
three topics, Pridgen took
questions from the audience,
most of which concerned den-
sity, compatibility,
stormwater, and future avail-
ability of drinking water.
"Water is going to be the
problem it will be here
sooner than you know," he
said.
In response to a question
regarding property rights,
Pridgen said his understand-
ing is based on "how we do it
in the north, which means
your rights stop when you
infringe on your neighbor."
An example would be, he
said, sending water onto
another's property.
When asked about prop-
erty rights and some of the
other issues concerning citi-
zens at the meeting, "That's
where compatibility needs to
come into play,"' he said.

RUI asking to help


create affordable


housing in south


Walton County


By RON KELLEY
Dewey Wilson's phone has
been ringing off the hook for
the last few days.
Apparently, scores of devel-
opers have been calling the
Regional Utilities Inc. (RUI)
general manager asking
about discounts for sewer
and water tap fees, as an-
nounced by Tom Powell, di-
rector of the Economic Devel-
opment Council of,Walton
County, in a story that ap-
peared in the Northwest
Florida Daily News.
Powell's statements re-
garding the discounts were
completely erroneous but
that hasn't stopped the bar-
rage of phone calls from lo-
cal developers.
The need for' affordable
housing, in south Walton has
long been recognized, but
little has been accomplished
with regard to solutions. Of-
ficials and developers have
paid lip service to the idea
and little else, until a recent
proposal by Wilson to the
Walton County Commission.
Wilson suggested that a
portion of a 2,100 acre site,
originally purchased by RUI
for a wastewater disposal, be
used instead to provide resi-
dential lots for affordable
housing.


As a non-profit organiza-
tion, RUI would administer
the project, and lots would
only be available to residents
who met certain financial re-
quirements. Wilson noted.
that while some unimproved
lots around Freeport were al-
ready selling for $60,000 or
more, he felt they might be
able to offer lots with water
and sewer service for around
$35,000, with certain stipu-
lations built in.
For instance, once a home
is built, residents would have
to agree to live in the new
home for at least five years
before they could sell and
none of the lots would be
available for speculation or
resale.
"We're definitely not offer-
ing any discount tap fees to'
,developers," said Wilson..
Prospective residents would
have to meet a number of re-
quirements set forth by the
state Department ofCommu-
nity Affairs in order to
qualify.
Lots for affordable housing
development would not be'
available for sale for approxi-
mately 12 to 14 months, de-
pending upon land use ap-
proval, financing and con-
struction of infrastructures.

the county to enter negotiations with an interested party
regarding a five-acre site in the Mossy Head Industrial Park
property, and for the county to clear and provide utilities to
the site. The subcomponent to a proposed conceptual plan
for the park would depend on an agreement regarding the
five-acre site, according to Jones. The interested party is to
bring the plan, which involves the whole of the western 50-
acre portion of the property, before the county within 30 to
60 days. There is said to be a potential for the creation of
over 100 jobs. The identity of the party and details on the
plan are not currently being divulged in order to maintain
the integrity of the proposed project, according to Jones.
Approved 5-0.

Approval of David Kramer to serve on redistricting
committee after Cuchens' appointee, Ronnie Brannon, chose

Opera Delights Kids-
The sounds of Mozart
performed by four polished
voices from the Pensacola
Opera Company could be
heard throughout Butler
Elementary's gym on Jan.
18. The Mattie Kelly Arts
Foundation treated first
graders to the one act opera
that told the familiar tale of
the Three Little Pigs.
There was plenty of gleeful
interaction between the
young audience and perform-
ers when the students were
exposed to Wolfgang, the
predatory lobo. Along with
the wonder and enjoyment of
the music, they received an
underlying message.
Despina, the pig, used the
library as research for build-
ing a sturdy home.
Opera in a Trunk, espe-
cially commissioned for
middle schoolers,was per-
formed later in the afternoon
at Seaside Charter School.
Using students suggestions,
the singers improvised an
opera using items from the
trunk.
Lynn Wesson, education
director of the foundation,
scheduled Pensacola Opera
in Walton County through
Jan. 25. Other schools vis-
ited were: Freeport Elemen-
tary and Middle School,
South Walton Middle School,
Maude Saunders Elemen-
tary School and West DeFu-
niak Elementary School.

founder of the Young Actor's
Studio in the capital city and
Johnny and my son, Steve,
have been pals since first-
grade at Trinity. All three
were involved in Children's
Theater during the 60s.
Fast forward to now. Or-

was only fitting for her to

did in his signature tune
Take Five.

vnu entertainment report
The month of May will feature an-
other Elvis Presley bonanza, led by Ran-
dom House division Crown's May 3 pub-
lication of the book "Elvis by the
Presleys." The volume was written by
Presley's ex-wife Priscilla and his daugh- l
ter Lisa Marie and will for the first time
feature selections from their personal
photos and memorabilia.
"Elvis by the Presleys" will be aug-
mented by a TV special of the same name ELVIS
to air May 13 on CBS, featuring new in-
terviews with Lisa Marie, Priscilla and her parents, previ-
ously unseen Presley television performances and family
home movies.
A double CD compilation will be released to coincide
with the special and will include tracks from the show, fam-
ily favorites and rare and unreleased tracks to be an-
nounced.
On May 8 and 11, CBS will broadcast the four-hour
miniseries "Elvis," starring British actor Jonathan Rhys
Meyers as Presley. The artist's family granted producers
their full cooperation for the project, which will be the first
biographical film to feature Presley's original recordings.

Reign of Terror
In Ice Cube's premiere
family movie,
'Are We There Yet?' the
kids"antics belong in a
'Home Alone' film
By Wesley Morris
S- waeialvnu entertainment report
In the 10 years since he
arrived in Hollywood, Ice
cated Content Cube has played all kinds of
cops, thugs, soldiers, and bar-
r Prs -bers. He even directed a
mmercial News Providers" movie about a strip club
that's fondly thought of as the
black "Showgirls." But per-
- -* haps sensing that it might be
time todo a moviehecould
watch with his own children,
the rapper finally made him-
self a nice family comedy.
S- - .... Whether "Are We There
U Yet?" which he produced, will
-- "- melt the lil' Cubes remains to
o be seen, but this gnarly and
- illogical little sitcom is bound
to make any adult reconsider
.- *- .- that next outing with the
kids. '


- *


41h
%,--


- -- 4


- m


- ~


Cube plays Nick Parsons,
the owner of a sports memo-
rabilia store in Portland, Ore.,
and he can't stand children,
especially the ones that come
attached to cute
bachelorettes. But he battles
his disdain when he meets a
- single mother of two named
Suzanne; since she's played
by Nia Long you can under-
stand his willingness to com-
promise. But you can't en-
tirely grasp how this level-
headed woman could produce
a pair of children as super-
"* obnoxious as Lindsey and
Kevin (the dangerously
spunky Aleisha Allen and
Philip Bolden), whom Nick
not inaccurately calls "grem-
lins."
Suzanne's kids are so con-
vinced that their father will
rejoin their big happy home


Philip Daniel Bolden (left) stars as Kevin, a kid who hasn't
given up on his dad coming back, and Ice Cube stars as Nick,
a guy who wants to date Kevin's mom, in "Are We There Yet?"


that they turn terrorist on
their mother's new prospects,
subjecting them to bruising
contraptions that wouldn't be
out of place in "Home Alone
12."
"I feel sorry for the next
sucker that tries to put the
moves on her,' says Kevin's
big sister. So do we, Lindsey,
so do we though not as
sorry as anyone who sticks
around for the ensuing kicks
to the crotch, projectile vomit,
feigned asthma attacks,
faked kidnapping, gassy old
ladies and a belligerent com-
puter-enhanced deer.
There's a terrifying scene
in which Lindsey gets her
hands on a live microphone
and belts out a version of"Re-
spect" that could be sold as a
car alarm.

All this foulness arises af-
ter Suzanne's ex-husband
cancels their arrangement for
him to bring the kids to
Vancouver. She's an events
coordinator and has to be
there for New Year's. Dad is
out, but St. Nick is in.
Of course, getting Lindsey
and Kevin north of the bor-
der proves to be a nightmare.
After being evicted from the
airport (Kevin slips a pocket
knife into Nick's coat), then
missing the train (Kevin hops
off to fetch a missing cape for


his superhero toy), Nick dares
drive them in his-brand new
Lincoln Navigator. Lining the
interior with plastic and
barking commandments -
doii't touch the SUV, don't eat
in the SUV, and so on is
merely an invitation to de-
stroy it.
It took four writers and
director Brian Levant, who
also made "Jingle All the
Way," "The Flintstones" and
"Snow Dogs," to come up with
this cartoon. Yet despite its
faults, "Are We There Yet?" is
the rare movie to acknowl-
edge the vast bandwidth of
African-American identity,
which extends out of the
ghetto and into the suburbs
and the middle class. Both
kids have an allergic reaction
to the music of hip-hop rough-
neck 50 Cent. "I'd give him a
dollar to shut up," Lindsey
snipes. Kevin prefers Clay
Aiken, and Nick bemoans
that both children are "ethni-
cally challenged."
Ice Cube is an asset to the
film. He's so genuinely good
with the effortless Long that
you wish the two would just
run off and make a real adult
romantic comedy. Then again
- if you've been waiting to
see the ex-NWA.rapper throw
tantrums and stick his
tongue out at small children
- run, don't walk.
