It isn't the jail

By Ken Little
WaltonCounty Citizen Services
Following recent county
commission action on Janu-
ary 25 to halt construction on
the Walton County Jail, resi-
dents still wonder why con-
struction activity continues
at the Walton County Court-'
house site.
The steel being erected be-
hind the familiar DeFuniak
Springs landmark is a project
to expand and renovate the
courthouse. When completed
in 2006, this expansion will
allow all the county's consti-
tutional officers -- the Clerk,
the Property Appraiser, the
Tax Collector, and the Super-
visor of Elections -- to again
provide their services from a
single location at the county
seat.
A fire in 1992 forced all but
forced the Walton County
Clerk of Court from the
courthouse into temporary
service facilities around De-


PITAT FREEPORT WASTE TREATMENTPLANT containing spilled partially '-treated

Funiak Springs. The rapid
growth of the county and
need for increased services
since that time has kept
those officials from returning
to a full courthouse.
The original facility was
built in 1929, with an addi-
tion being completed in 1959.
Design of the expansion and
renovation project was begun
by Walton County native
Charles Carlan of Carlan-
Killam Architects in Pensa-
cola in 2000. The construc-
tion bid by Speegle Construc-
tion Company was approved
by the Board of County Com-
missioners in 2004. Peter
Brown Construction of Talla-
hassee was .awarded the bid
for the construction of the jail
at the same time, but as a
separate project.
As of October 2004, con-
struction costs to expand and
refurbish the courthouse was
about $10.5 million. This cost
includes some asbestos re-


moval in the oldest portion of
the existing building, and
security upgrades for the ju-
diciary functions and offices
handling funds. According to
the county's construction
manager, Rick Millard, con-
struction is proceeding on
Millard noted that while
the jail construction project
has halted, there will still be
some activity on the jail site
for a short while. Excavation
that was done for building
footers must be filled in to
create a parking lot. This will
also provide space to house
temporary administration
trailers for the Walton
County Sheriffs Office and
additional tents for inmates
to alleviate overcrowding in
the jail.
The Walton County Com-
mission will hear proposals
from Peter Brown Construc-
tion on options for a new jail
north of DeFuniak Springs
within the next sixty days.

At about 2 a.m. on Feb.3 at
the Freeport Waste Water
Treating Plant, a pump
which recycles sewage sludge
from the plant's clarifier tank
back into the main biological
treating tank suffered an
electrical failure, resulting in
pump shut down followed by
a spill of about 30,000 to
40,000 gallons of partially
treated sewage sludge. The
sludge spilled out through
the pump station overflow
pipe into a large pit which
had been dug as part of the
plant expansion project,
which is underway. Mayor
Mickey Marse said that given
the circumstances the out-
come was as fortunate as
could be hoped for since the
sludge solids were contained
in the pit.
Licensed Waste Treatment
Operator Bridget Hillgen-


berg said that the electrical
failure not only shut down
the sludge pump but it shut
down the drive motor on the
"scraper" in the bottom of the
clarifier tank where the
sludge solids are separated
from the waste water coming
from the biological treating
tank. Fortunately, the sys-
tem was returned to normal
operation before any other
adverse operating problems
developed. Liquid from the
pit was pumped back into
the biological treating tank.
Sludge solids left in the pit
were to be picked up and
moved to the plant's sludge
de-watering station.
Licensed Waste Treatment
Operator Robert Fawcett
said that he didn't know yet
what the origin of the failure
was, but the event had
burned out the wiring in the
electrical panel serving both


the pump and the clarifier
tank motor. He said it was
necessary to rewire the sys-
tem before a back-up pump,
which had just been returned
to the plant from a mainte-
nance overhaul, could be
placed in operation.
Marse said that the Walton
County Health Department
and the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection
had been notified as required
and that they were expected
to conduct a review of the in-
cident.

There are six monitor wells
located around the site and
samples from these wells will
be tested to determine if
waste water percolating
through the soil at the pit has
contaminated the ground
water. Plant staff does not
anticipate any significant
problem will be found.


The value of community education

Richards named OWC

Alumnus of the Year


When it comes to commu-
nity involvement and sup-
port of his alma mater,
Okaloosa-Walton College
alumnus Mike Richards, of
DeFuniak Springs, sets a
sterling example for others to
follow.
Richards, OWJC class of
1970, served for three years
as the president of OWC's
Alumni Association, was a
member of the college's 40th
anniversary steering, com-
mittee,, and is an on-going
"unofficial" Walton County
ambassador for the college,
enthusiastically sharing the
OWC story with potential
students and donors.
As vice president for corpo-
rate services for the
Choctawhatcheee Electric
Cooperative (CHELCO),
Richards also assisted in es-
tablishing two endowed
scholarships through corpo-
rate donations from
CHELCO to the OWC Foun-
dation. The scholarships an-
nually provide financial sup-
port for students from Wal-
ton and Okaloosa counties to
pursue higher education on
a full-time basis.
Richards firmly believes in
the value of a community col-
lege education to help stu-
dents "build a solid founda-
tion for a successful future,"
and this commitment to local
higher education opportuni-


ties has led to his consistent
involvement for more than 15
years in a variety of efforts
to support OWC.
It was his contagious en-
thusiasm and ambassador-
ship for OWC that led to
Richards being selected as
Okaloosa-Walton College's
2004-'05 Distinguished
Alumnus of the Year and the
college's representative for
the statewide LeRoy Collins
Distinguished Community
College Alumni Award, spon-
sored by the Florida Associa-
tion of Community Colleges.
Richards was also recognized
at the OWC Foundation An-
nual meeting held February
4 at the Niceville Campus.
"Mike Richards sets an ex-
ample of what a good commu-
nity college alumnus should
be," said Dr. Bob Richburg,
OWC president. "Once he
completed his education at
O.W. and stepped out into the
corporate world, he didn't
leave O.W. behind.
"He tirelessly supports the
college, both as a corporate
donor and as a friend. Be-
cause of Mike's active in-
volvement, and the support
from Gene Smith, CHELCO
CEO, the OWC Foundation
administers two endowed
CHELCO scholarships to
provide financial support for
students from Walton and
Okaloosa counties."


CONSTRUCTION STILL CONTINUES at Walton County Courthouse site.


"Making Freeport self-sufficient"


Freeport's new city planner


MIKE RICHARDS


Richards plays a vital role
in helping to organize annual
charity events to benefit
OWC, such as the Sprint Golf
Classic and Earl Hutto Golf
Tournament and he served as
a member of the fund cam-
paign to raise $100,000 to
expand the OWC Chautau-
qua Center in Walton
County. The Arts Center
Campaign to underwrite cul-
tural endeavors at the
college's fine and performing
arts complex and OWC's new
bachelor's degree program in
project and acquisitions man-
agement have also benefited
from Richards' corporate in-
fluence.
As if his active involvement
with OWC isn't enough, Mike
Richards is a true community
leader who puts service for
others on the top of his busy
"to do" list. Service with the
Okaloosa-Walton School-to-
Work Consortium, Florida 4-

* Freeport's newly-created
position of city planner has
been filled. DeFuniak
Springs resident Latilda
Henninger, currently a se-
nior planner for Walton
County, will begin work in
Freeport on February 16.
Henninger said that the po-
sition was created in re-
sponse to a "mass of develop-
ment in the area," and that a
number of Freeport commu-
nity leaders had encouraged
her to apply for the job.
Henninger has a degree in
urban and regional planning
from Florida State, and has
some 16 years experience in
Walton County planning.
Her first task in Freeport,
she says, will be to assess the
current development situa-
tion, and "get a handle on the
big picture." She adds that
she will "work with the
people who are already work-
ing, and see what projects are
already in progress."
Henninger believes that
her training in education will
also come in handy. "Many
people don't understand the,
impact that planning will
have on them," she says. "My
job will be to educate indi-
viduals on planning and
growth management. I can


put it into layman's terms."
For the time being, hers
will be a one-person opera-
tion. Once Henninger gets a
full grasp of the situation,
she will make decisions on
adding staff. For now, she
sees her goal as making Free-
port "self-sufficient, to
handle all aspects of develop-
ment."
Additionally, she will be
keeping track of all projects,
effectively implementing the
regulations, and offering her
own insights. "I'm a liason
between the city council and
the planning board, and will
keep both appraised of plan-
ning issues. I'll also advise on
language changes in the code
and regulations."
"I intend to keep an open-
door policy," says Henninger.
"About once a month I will
publish and distribute a de-
partment memorandum
summarizing current devel-
opment and upcoming initia-
tives. There will be forums
and workshops."
Henninger's outlook seems
to be cautious optimism.
"Freeport is a small town
growing up in a hurry. We
can expect growing pains.
The unknown is more fright-
ening, so the public must be
part of the process."

Skipper advocates heart license plate


February is National Heart
Month. Walton County Tax
Collector Rhonda Skipper
announced that in conjunc-
tion with Governor Jeb
Bush's proclamation of Feb.
7-14, 2004 to be "Stop Heart


Disease Week", the employ-
ees of the tax collector's office
are proudly promoting the
purchase of the Stop Heart
Disease License Plate
throughout February.
According to Skipper,


funds raised from the Stop
Heart Disease license plate
are legislatively mandated to
support heart disease re-
search, education and pre-
vention programs through-
out Florida. Twenty-five dol-


lars from registration fees of
every plate sold and renewed
will go to the Florida Heart
Research Foundation where
it will be used for heart dis-
ease research.
. Rhonda Skipper added, the
first time one orders a spe-
cialty license plate, the cost
is an additional $37 over your
regular renewal fee ($12 to
the state, and $25 to the
Foundation). Each subse-
quent year, the cost is $27
over the regular renewal fee
($2 to the state, and $25 to
the Foundation). Citizens do
,not have to wait for renewal
period to purchase a new
plate.
"Our employees are taking
a stance to make Florida a
heart-healthy state", said
Skipper. "We will be provid-
ing promotional materials at
local community events, and
in our branch offices."
For more information
about the Florida Heart Re-
search Foundation and the
specialty license plate, visit
www.heartplate.com.


Jones said at that time that
he hoped to be bringing a con-
ceptual plan for 50 acres at
the industrial park back to
the board in 30-60 days.
Within that plan, he said,
there are some subcompo-
nents, one of which involved
a 5-acre site.

He asked the BCC to offer
a letter of intent to enter ne-
gotiations for the 5-acre site,
which he said could produce
as many as 100 jobs.
Jones told the BCC that
the entire project depends on
this particular subcompo-
nent. A motion to send the
letter was approved 5-0.

Then at the Feb. 1 BCC
land use meeting, Jones


raised the subject again. "I
have an additional request,"
he said, explaining that the
prospective tenant was ask-
ing for 50 acres and utilities
for a distribution center to
employ about 300 people.
"They would be good pay-
ing jobs," Jones said, but "it
will be a challenge since
roads, sewer and other utili-
ties will need to be ad-
dressed." He reminded com-
missioners that four years
ago the county agreed to set
aside a half million dollars a
year for economic develop-
ment, and that this money
could be tapped for the nec-
essary infrastructure.
The BCC unanimously
passed a motion to send a let-
ter of commitment.

Editor:
Members of the Fourth Estate meet with any suggestion
of restrictions being placed on the media vociferously. They
cite freedom of the press, freedom of speech and the public's
right to information concerning the actions of their govern-
ment. In this they are correct. The public certainly has a
right to this information, but they are entitled to complete
and accurate information.
Information contained in the web posting 01-26-05 by Art
Dees of radio station WZEP and the Daily News 01-30-05
column by Wendy Victoria was neither complete nor accu-
rate. The $5 million cited is a bogus figure and does not
take into account reductions through redirecting or reallo-
cation of funds and materials.
At present, the final net costs are not known by anyone.
There are several design options under consideration that
will affect the final cost. Neither author mentions that pre-
vious commissioners were presented with a plan, which a
majority of them ignored, to place the jail north of town.
One has to wonder where the Fourth Estate was during
that discussion. The steel Ms. Victoria mentions is part of
the courthouse expansion. It has nothing to do with the jail.
The seated commissioners made the right decision.

officer for nanY years, a correction officer a few't re'yeats,|!
a private investigator for the past twenty-five years, as well!
as a security officer for the same amount of time,-and am- ama
licensed instructor in the security industry. At present, I
have trained several hundred officers who have in the past,
or are presently providing security protection for this and
other communities.
My complaint is I do my best to teach these officers the
laws of this state in order to produce the best officer I can to
provide this service to the client and to the public. The laws
governing security are not the same as those pertaining to
law enforcement, but there are some striking similarities.
An example is the laws governing just how one can make a
search of a citizen.
Security personnel are allowed to search an individual
under two conditions. At the request of the client, if he has
a policy in force at a place of employment that employees
may be subjected to a search, the security officer may search
that person, if that person agrees to the search. If that per-
son refuses, the search cannot be made. The person might
be dismissed by the employer, but he still has the right to
walk away from the client's property without being searched.
The other way the security officer may do a search of a per-
son is if the officer has grounds to make an arrest, and in
fact has made an arrest, he then has the right to search the
arrested person for the officer's protection. This search may
be made without the consent of the person being searched.
The things to be searched for are restricted by law to things
that could harm the arresting officer, things that could be
used to escape, things that' could be used to harm the ar-
rested person, and things that could have been used in the
commission of the crime in which the person is charged with
or fruits of that crime. Anything confiscated in this search
will not be admissible in court, if the arrest proves to be
without grounds.
Guess what? A police officer is restricted to these same
two grounds to perform a search, with the same restrictions.
He cannot search anyone without that person's consent un-
less he has already arrested that person, and then that
search is limited to the same things allowed to be taken
from the arrested person. There is one other way a police
officer may make a search that is not in the realm of the
security officer. This is with a search warrant. A security
officer cannot obtain this document. It involves going be-
fore a judge and showing that the police officer has prob-
able cause to believe the person to be searched has, or is
committing a felony, and that the officer believes the person
to be searched has the means or fruits of this crime in his
possession. He must tell the judge what is to be searched
for, where the search will be, and this must be specific, and
what crime the search will confirm.
Like I said, I try to teach these security officers the law,
and you, and those officers watch law enforcement officers
violate these laws every day. This is just one example. I could
go on for hours about the way the constitutional rights of
American citizens are abused by those sworn to protect and
uphold the laws of this great country. I can prove that two
Walton County citizens are today serving time in a state
prison, who were arrested illegally, and then railroaded by
their own attorney, along with the entire court system.
We have a problem, people, something must be done!
This letter is not meant to include the honest officer. There
are those out there who are doing their job with the highest
integrity, and I salute those officers. It also is not directed
to any one agency or department. Some of my dearest friends
are deputy sheriffs, as well as city police officers. My letter
is meant to alert those in these agencies that there are prob-
lems within your ranks, and you have a duty to expose those
who are not doing what the job requires. Expose them be-
fore someone else does. Tom Gipson,

Editor,
Why should we let people who live in Mexico, work in the
United States? This takes awayjobs from people in this coun-
try who cannot find work. I cannot believe that Mr. Bush
wants to take jobs away from us and give them to people
who do not live in the United States and pay taxes.
If we all had jobs, we would not need food stamps or un-
employment checks. We did not have this problem forty years
ago. Lawerence P. Lewis
DeFuniak Springs



Editor:
I'm happy to see President Bush speaking of the need for
tax reform. Of all the proposals, there is one that I believe
is by far the best: the FairTax a bill currently in congress
(HR25) that has more than 50 congressional representa-
tives already signed on as co-sponsors.
The FairTax (www.fairtax.org) is a not an income tax,
but a consumption tax. All income tax, including Social Se-
curity and Medicare payroll taxes would be eliminated for
both individuals and corporations. It would be replaced by
a national retail sales tax of approximately 23 percent. Be-
cause manufacturers would no longer have income tax, they
would no longer need to mark up the price of their goods by
20-25 percent as they do now. So the !price of goods will be
reduced, causing the total price with the 23 percent sales
tax, to be not much of an increase. Furthermore, this abil-
ity to reduce the cost of our goods will make us much more
competitive in the global marketplace, which will help keep
more of our jobs from going offshore. Those who deal in the
"underground economy", who currently evade their fair
share of tax and increase the burden on the rest of us will
no longer be able to do so.
Our current tax system is really nothing short of "insane"
because of its numerous faults. One of the most bother-
some of those faults is the tremendous waste of productiv-
ity we have as a country because of the enormous cost of
compliance for both individuals and corporations. I am
outraged over the amount of time I give up each year to
understand all that is necessary to do my personal ahd small
business taxes.
With a consumption tax, Americans will see more clearly
what they are being taxed and be able to better judge what
government spending programs they are willing to pay for
and which they are not. The FairTax would eliminate the
unseen taxes and make it more obvious to people what their
tax burden is.
The tax burden distribution of the FairTax is fairer than
the present tax system because of its rebate to ensure that
taxes are only paid on consumption above the poverty line.
Thus, it is not regressive as opponents of tax reform al-
ways claim when they are trying to keep the "status quo".
If the American people are given a true picture of the
FairTax, I believe they will be overwhelmingly in favor of

CHELCO's YOUTH TOUR PROGRAM, originally sched-
uled for Feb. 24, has been rescheduled for March 3. Several
participants had a conflict with a school-sponsored activity
on that date.
Candidates have been selected from 10 participating area
schools, and most of the candidates have been contacted con-
cerning the date change. A total of 22 students will be par-
ticipating this year, including two students in a separate
competition for children of cooperative employees.
Youth Tour is a program for juniors whose homes are
served by CHELCO. The competition requires entrants to
write a brief essay about themselves and participate in an
interview session with three judges. Four overall winners
will travel to Washington, D.C., to participate in the national
Youth Tour event.
Following the competition at CHELCO headquarters in
DeFuniak Springs March 3, all students will travel to Talla-
hassee March 16-17. Four Youth Tour winners will travel to
Washington, D.C., June 18-23.
Youth Tour provides students with an opportunity to learn
about cooperatives, as well as government on the state and
federal levels. Since 1983 when CHELCO began participat-
ing inYouth Tour, the cooperative has sent 56 students to
Washington, D.C., and approximately 375 students whose
families live in CHELCO's service territory have taken part
in the program.

[f Gulf Power Company will
f be the first utility in the na-
tion to launch a comprehen-
sive mercury research center
to study different methods of
reducing, mercury emissions
from power plants.
The center will be estab-
lished at the company's Plant
Crist, just north of Pensacola,
where emissions will be
treated with different state-
of-the-art technologies to
gauge the most effective
ways to reduce mercury.
Even though power plants
emit only 1 percent of mer-
cury emissions worldwide,
the company believes the re-
search is important to help
protect the environment.
"This research will be


available to other utilities
and other industries so that
the benefits can be realized
around 'the glove," .said Jim
Vick, Gulf Power's manager
of Environmental Affairs.
"We are establishing some-
thing here that does not ex-
ist anywhere else in 'the
world and we believe we will
make great strides in discov-
ering new methods of reduc-
ing emissions."

Initially the company will
test combinations of five dif-
ferent treatment methods
using a portion of the plant's
emissions for the research.
As the research continues
other methods may be discov-
ered and added to the re-


search.
"We applaud Gulf Power
for providing strong leader-
ship in the research, anid in-
stitution of clean air tech-
nologies," said Allan Bedwell,
Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection Deputy
Secretary for Regulatory Pro-
grams and Energy.
; The company plans to have
the research center in full
operation by November.
Since 1992 GulfPower has
reduced overall emissions
more than 70 percent at
Plant Crist and local environ-
mental officials also ap-
plauded GulfPower's efforts.
Gulf Power also is open to
other companies or research-
ers suggesting or conducting


new or different treatment
technologies at the center.
"We consider ourselves
leaders in protecting the en-
vironment and we want this
research center to be open to
Everyone so we can find real
answers to tough problems,"
Vick said.
In addition to the Mercury
Research Center, Gulf Power
is wrapping up construction
of its $120 million nitrogen
oxide (NOx) treatment. sys-
tem. The company voluntar-
ily initiated the project two
years ago to help Escambia
County, meet new, tougher
ozone standards. The new
treatment system will be in

Drugs and endangered children are a problem


The production of metham-
phetamine (meth) in home-
based drug labs along with
an escalation of meth use in
Northwest Florida presents
our community with a unique
set of problems that other il-
legal drugs have never before
presented. "
The chemicals used to
manufacture meth, the pro-
duction process, and the
waste generated as a result
of that process pose very real
dangers tb the public and the
environment. These dangers
include toxic poisoning.


chemical and thermal bums,
fires, and explosions. The
children who live,.in and
around meth labs are' at
greatest risk of harm due to,
their developmental nature,
the abuse and neglect perpe-

takers.
In response to the meth
threat, community represen-

sensations to cooking school


Bubbly home economist,
Michelle Roberts, is looking
forward to infusing your
springtime cooking with ka-
leidoscope of recipes this
spring. Michelle will present
"Rainbow of Flavors" at the
Taste of Home Cooking
School held in Freeport on
Thursday, Feb. 17. Michelle
is eager to share new recipes
and tips from national spon-
sors including, Crisco, For-
mula 409, Kikkoman,
McCormick, Nestle',
Reynolds and Saran. The
taste sensations will cover
the range from mouth-water-
ing entrees to decadent des-
serts. There's something for
every palate.
Roberts earned an Associ-
ates of Applied Science de-
gree from Copiah-Lincoln
Community College in
Wesson, MS and a Bachelor
of Science degree in Culinary
Arts from Mississippi Uni-
versity for Women in Colum-
bus, MS. Michelle grew up
helping her grandmother in
the kitchen and knew at an
early age that she wanted a
career in food. And as an ac-
complished singer she can
combine her two "loves": be-
ing on stage and cooking.
Roberts, originally from
southwestern Mississippi,
spent the last two years pre-
senting cooking schools in
Michigan, Indiana, Ohio and
Pennsylvania. A "Southern
Belle" at heart, Michelle re-
cently changed territories
and will now conduct shows
in Tennessee, North Caro-
lina, South Carolina, Geor-
gia, Alabama, Mississippi,
Louisiana and Florida. She's
excited about her move and


is happy to be back "home"
in the South.
Come and see Michelle stir
up some excitement and add
a springtime of flavors to the
Taste of Home Cooking
School when she demon-
strates "Spring Greens and
Berry Pecan Salad", "Tropi-
cal Teriyaki Pita Pockets"
and "Buckeye Cake" plus 7


more tempting recipes. Ev-
eryone will receive a compli-
mentary copy of the Spring
2005 Taste of Home Cooking
School Cookbook that in-
cludes these recipes and over
150 others to share with fam-
ily and friends.

with intentions of not coming
back. My mind was changed
real quick. I had so much fun.
In one week's time, I noticed
how different Ifelt. I was very
uncomfortable at work due to
the pain in my back. I now
can get through a night's
work without the pain. I feel
better physically and emo-
tionally thanks so much.

PAGE 7-B


Facts on Walton County Animal Control
1. In August of 2001 the Walton County Commissioners voted unanimously to
build, furnish and maintain an animal control facility.
2. Again in 2003 the Walton County Commissioners voted 4 to 1 to build, furnish
and maintain an animal control facility on EOC Property. Rosier Cuchens was the
single NAY vote.
3. The Animal Control Committee was formed in Oct. 2003 and tasked with looking
at various properties to determine the feasibility of building an animal control
shelter.
4. The recommendation of the Committee to the BCC when the D&D Pet Motel
property was looked at was, that it was NOT suitable for a facility because it
lacked sewer & water and needed far to many upgrades just to bring it up to
minimal standards because the property had not been used for animals in excess of
20 years.
5. Jan. 12, 2005 Rosier Cuchens requested that the BCC look at the feasibility of
leasing the D&D Pet Motel from the current owner as a temporary animal control
facility even though land has been DONATED to the county on Rock Hill Road,
which the Animal Control Committee unanimously supported and found suitable.
The only exception to the donation was that the land must be used for animal
control.
6. Jan 25, 2005 Rosier Cuchens once again requested the BCC move the process
hastily along to lease the D&D property to Bring the Animals Back to Walton
County. Mr. Cuchens wife Casey was also in attendance .at this meeting and
spoke glowingly in support of her husbands agenda. Rosier Cuchens secretary (Ex
Humane Society Board Member) Sandra Jenkins and current President of the
Animal Control Committee and Ex Humane Society Board Member Johnny Irving
were also in attendance. Mr. Irving as President of the Animal Control Committee
had previously conceded to the BCC the D&D Property was not suitable as an
animal control facility.
7. Two appraisals which the County requested from architects to build on land
donated to the county on 'Rock Hill Road are currently sitting on the County
Administrators (Ronnie Bell) desk which have cost the taxpayers approximately
$9,100.00 EACH. These proposals do not include blueprints or actual building
plans.
8. The cost to upgrade the D&D Pet Motel property to absolute minimum animal
control standards (kennels, runs & cat cages) has been estimated at approximately
$70 thousand dollars or more. This does not include sewer & water taps, the staff
needed to maintain the facility, veterinary services or the cost of leasing the
property.
9. The BCC declined to hire a much needed third animal control officer at the Jan.
25, 2005 board meeting citing the cost. Cost? If we can t hire another officer due
to cost where is the feasibility of leasing property temporarily that we don t own
and upgrading it for someone else?
Why should the taxpayer s spend close to $70 thousand dollars or more on a temporary
facility, on land we do NOT own when that money would be better spent&Wi-i6r own
new facility?

DID YOU KNOW?
Average number of litters a fertile cat can produce in one year: 3
Average number of kittens in a feline litter: 4-6
In seven years, one female cat and her offspring can theoretically produce 420,000
cats.
Average number of litters a fertile dog can produce in one year: 2


Average number of puppies in a canine litter: 6-10
In six -years, one female dog and her offspring can theoretically produce 67,000
dogs.
Every day in the United States thousands upon thousands of puppies and kittens are
born because of the uncontrolled breeding of pets. Add to that number the offspring of
stray and abandoned companion animals, and the total becomes even more staggering.
Every year, between six and eight million dogs and cats enter U.S. shelters; some three to
four million of these animals are euthanized because there are not enough h6mesfor them.
Each year communities are forced to spend millions of taxpayer dollars trying to cope
with the consequences of this surplus of pets. These public costs include services such as
investigating animal cruelty, humanely' capturing stray animals, and sheltering lost and
homeless animals.
The IMPORTANCE of spay/neutering your pet cannot be underestimated or over
simplified.

Yue TO
His Word

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


,-,For all of Godt's promises' have been fulfilled in him.
That is why we say "Amen" when we give glory to God
through Christ 2 C6rinthiians 1:20 (NLT.'
The word .amen.is a strong word meaning "may he
add to me the blessing I have agdnelTwTith from His
Word." We grow in God as we are enriched in His Word.
Every promise made concerning'the` Messiah in the
Bible has been completely satisfied in the person of Jesus
Christ.
There was not one prophecy made, one truth told, or
one guarantee promised that was not fulfilled by Jesus.
His arrival on the scene, life that He lived, and His
death and resurrection have accomplished each and ev-
ery promise made.
In addition, every promise concerning those who have
placed their faith in Jesus has been fulfilled, established,
verified, and confirmed through the Christ.
Every believer can claim the promises of God for his/
her life, not because of any personal accomplishment,
but because of Jesus who fulfills all that He set out to
accomplish.
Our agreement to'what Jesus has cqomplished is a
source of praise and worship to God the Father.
As we trust in Christ's sufficiency to fulfill the biblical
mandates concerning Himself we affirm ourselves deeper
in His image.
We affirm the promises concerning those who place
their faith in Him, we can shout a loud'"Amen" to the
Father in acknowledgement of all tlhai e has done.
PRAYER THOUGHT: Father, I know I can trust You. All
of Your promises are affirmed in Your Son.
Come worship with us at the exciting Freeport United
Methodist Church. Sunday School 8:45,a.m.; worship 9:45
a.m.; Sunday evening praise, singing, and Bible study
5:15 p.m.; Wednesday "Eagle Christians"' 6 p.m. Listen
to WZEP each Sunday morning 7:05-7:30 a.m.; May God
bless your day as you allow Jesus to shih'e./

We have lost

an old friend
By BILL DeROLF
Herman S. Wigodsky, MD,
PhD., passed away in San
Antonio, TX. If he had lived
until June 12, he would have
been 90.
In the early 1950's, Doc, as
he was called by his friends,
and his uncle, Philip Rozran,
began acquiring forestland in
Walton County with the as-
sistance of Burl Uuderwood,.
a realtor, and W.F. Green, an
attorney. During the next fif-
'teen years they acquired
more than 16,000 acres. This
was to become the first certi-
fied tree farm in Walton
County. They were some of
the first non-industrial land-
owners to use heavy equip-
ment to site prepare land
prior to planting trees. They
combined a cattle operation
with forest management.
In 1969, Philip Rozran
died. In the late 1970s some
14,000 acres was purchased
by St. Regis Paper Company.
Doc continued in the active
management of the balance
of the property.
Doc was a member of the
Society of American Forest-
ers and a member of The
Florida Forestry Association.
He was chairman of the taxa-
tion committee for this orga-
nization and attended meet-
ings during 2004.
He and his wife of 56 years,
JoAnn, support Chautauqua,
both in DeFuniak Springs
and in New York.
All of his friends will miss
him. For some of us the
woods will neverbe the same.
Persons may wish.to make
donations in his memory to
The Florida Chautauqua
Center, P.O. Box 1273, DeFu-
niak Springs, FL.


Dr. Currie Remembered


My name is Ed Forbess, and I felt compelled to share my
thoughts and the thoughts of my family on what Dr. Currie
has meant to us over the years. I know that there are hun-
dreds of stories that would sound much like mine and I know
that most of this has already been said.
It has been about 30 years since I spent any time around
Dr. Currie, back in 1974 when my family and I left DeFu-
niak Springs. I had seen Dr. Currie several times through ,
the years when I came to town to visit Mike,. Pat and the,
family, and we would always check in to see how things were
going.
Like many other people, he was our family doctor from
the day we first moved to DeFuniak, when I was. 3 or 4,
until I moved away after high school. Through the course of
those 15 years, our relationship with Dr. Currie as a doctor
and a friend changed the outcome of each and every mem-
ber of my immediate family. He was involved as a medical
doctor and a family counselor, and through his work and
care, healed and guided us in many major decisions in our
lives.
I had the opportunity to be around Dr. Currie as a patient
and many hours when he was off duty as a friend of the
family. What I remember the most about 'Doc' was he was
always on duty 7 x 24, and I never saw him once complain.
He was a man of integrity, honor, and compassion. I'm sure
he didn't know it, but he was a man that helped me to set
standards for myself through life. I adopted him as a sec-
ond father figure during this time in my life. It's not like we
had deep conversations about life and the pursuit of happi-
ness, but it was his actions, and the way he handled situa-
tions when we were growing up.
There were several times through the years where the
boys and I had gotten ourselves into a little trouble, doing
what we did growing up. I can't divulge anything in par-
ticular because we are all grown and family men and we
wouldn't want to spill any beans, but it was like, he had a
whole team or network keeping track of our activities. From
time to time, we had to report to his office for a quick one-
on-three conversation. He talked and we listened, which gen-
erally ended with us digging, cutting, hauling or cleaning
up something to repay our debt for the infraction. He was
there for us through many of the good times and he was
always concerned, for all the boys and girls well being.
I remember after high school, when most of us went off to
college, I chose to join the military and had gotten orders
for Tokyo, Japan. I was a scared, southern boy going off toa a
foreign country, so what did he do? He invited me to join
him and the boys in. New Orleans and he helped me to cel-
ebrate this new adventure in my life. He was there for me.
We had spent many hours the night before my flight, tak-
ing in the nightlife. With Doc, it was generally a feast with
all the boys, a couple of our favorite libations and a few
laughs, and he would leave us to our adventures.
I couldn't sleep much that night. When the morning came -
and everyone else was asleep, I had an early flight to catch.
I said my goodbyes the night before. I made it to the front to
of the hotel and I was going to hail a cab when a man came
up to me at the door and he said, "Mr. Forbess? Your airport
limo is waiting, good luck,, sir."
Unexpected, but it meant a lot to me.
I can tell you that, over the years, I talked about how for-
tunate I was to be able to come from DeFuniak Springs and
the type of life, good life, that I had and all the things we
had done as kids, and how the community took care of us.
Dr. Currie was always part of my story telling and how he
inspired me to care for people and to not be scared of what I
didn't know.
He had a long history of military and position, of which I
was in awe. He was to me, the, closest thing to a hero I had
known. This may sound cliche, but I know a man is judged
not by how much money he made of his accomplishments in
life, but by the number of people's lives he has affected in a
positive way.
Dr. Currie made a difference to so many people for so many
years, that his rewards are immeasurable in heaven. If there
is a human resources board in heaven, then they have just
received their new member.
He will be remembered and missed. Ed Forbess

New England Patriots


make it three out of four


By CHUCK HINSON
For the third time in four
years, the New England Pa-
triots proved they have what
it takes to be crowned the
best football team in the
NFL. They beat the Philadel-
phia Eagles in Super Bowl
XXXIX, 24-21.
The super bowl Win was the
team's ninth straight
postseason victory, equaling
that of Vince Lombardi's
Green Bay Packers. It was
head coach Bill Bilicheck's
tenth playoff victory in 11
games, one better than the
legendary Lombardi.
The victory matched Dal-
las' run of three champion-
ship wins in the 1990s.
Super Bowl XXXIX MVP's
Deion Branch tied an old
standing record of 11 recep-
tions in a postseason game.
But it was Patriot's Rodney
Harrison who shined on the
field and left the lasting im-
pression.
Though the Patriots did not
rely this game on the last
second field goal punting of
Adam Vinateiri, his 22-yard
punt with 8:40 remaining in
the fourth quarter, made the
point difference in the game
and ultimately in the end
result. Vinateiri told report-
ers afterwards that it was not


just his field goal, but a last-
minute defensive play.
That defensive play came
at the 46 second mark with
the Eagles having possession
of the ball on their four yard-
line. But once again, Patriots'
Rodney Harrison stopped the
forward movement of the
Eagles when he intercepted a
last-second pass with only
nine seconds left, thus ending
the game and crushing the
super bowl winning hopes for
Philadelphia.
Though it was obvious


throughout the first half that
it was all defense, each team
did manage to begin scoring
drives in the second quarter.
The score remained tied until
the fourth quarter and Vina-
tieri stepped up and kicked
one in to break the deadlock.
Philadelphia was hoping to
end the super bowl drought,
but once again fell to a
stronger opponent. The
Eagles have not been to the
"big game" since 1981 and
have not held a superbowl
trophy in more than 45 years.

Walton Middle School 0

students teaching

others about sharing


Walton Middle School
Builder and Beta Clubs
asked for the help of their
classmates at WMS and their
peers more than stepped up
to the challenge. The stu-
dents and faculty at WMS
have been putting the needs
of others above their own
lately.
During the month of No-
d vember, they brought in non-
perishable food items to help
the local chapter of the Red
Cross and Caring and Shar-
'I ing. The food items brought
in totaled 1,470 items, which


was divided evenly among
the two organizations.
In December, they were
hard at work again to help
out Toys for Tots. The stu-
dents brought in money or
new toys totaling $1,513.75.
Willing teachers and admin-
istration took sponges or
whipped cream pies to the
face for every $100 of toys
brought in by the students.

Students will be hard at
work again in the coming
months to help out with MDA
and Relay for Life.

LOCAL ARCHITECT CARY MCWHORTER prepared this preliminary drawing for
"Downtown Seagrove," a project in the works for a 1.4-acre site on the northwest corner of
CR-395 and CR-30A. A 30-room "boutique" hotel is included in the plans, which will be
explained to interested community members at a meeting on Feb. 17.




Boutique Hotel


planned for Seagrove


By TIANA LARSEN
"I encourage all who. are
interested to bring their
ideas and concerns. We want
the.community's input before
the design is finalized," said
Billy McConnell, about a
public meeting set for Feb. 17.
Since the home on the
prominent northwest corner
of CR-395 and CR-30A was
torn down some time ago, lo-
cals have been wondering
what would take its place.
In an effort to dispel ru-
mors circulating around
south Walton and to encour-
age people to bring, an open
mind to the meeting,
McConnell provided, the
Beach Breeze with a prelimi-
nary elevation drawing and
some information about
"Downtown Seagrove."
McConnell is a local resi-
dent and one of the investors
in the group working, on this
project. All the partners are
locals, he said, and there are
no out-of-towners involved.
All together there,4re 11
lots in the development, to-
taling 1.4 acres. All the lots
fronting CR-395 northlfrom
the corner to Grove St. are
included. According to


McConnell, the vacant corner
includes three lots fronting
CR-30A. The westernmost lot
will remain a green space
and connect to a north/south
vegetative buffer.
The "boutique" hotel rooms
will face the Gulf of Mexico,
and are envisioned as "an
exclusive, spa-oriented desti-
nation."
Ten condos will face CR-
395, with retail below.
McConnell said that al-
though it would be gone tem-
porarily during construction,
the Village Market will be
rebuilt, "as is, where is."
A portion of the develop-
ment will be four floors, but
other sections will be two or
three floors.

Some underground park-
ing. is planned, but
McConnell promised it would
be true underground park-
ing, and that the four-floor
section would be less than 50.
feet from the natural grade
of the ground.
Architect Cary McWhorter,
whose office is across the
street, varied the elevations,
McConnell explained, to pre-


vent a monolithic, wall effect.
Also promised are non-in-
trusive lighting and a net
addition of trees. The big
clusters of old-growth live
oaks are slated to be saved,
McConnell said.
No application has been
made yet to the county plan-
ning department. "It is far
from a dune deal," McConnell
said, adding that the part-
ners are waiting fo tritizen
input before finalizing the
plans.
He also wanted it known
that "Downtown Seagrove"
has absolutely no connection'
with two gulffront homes
across the street that re-
cently sold. (Walton County
official records show that
Naturewalk Development
Co. LLC purchased three
lots, including two concrete
block homes and 160 feet of
oceanfront last October for
$6,250,000. Naturewalk, a
different entity, is developing
further north on CR-395 near
Publix.)
The community meeting
will be at 5 p.m. at the Sea-
side Meeting Hall, behind
Modica Market; refresh-
ments will be served.

Dusty roads stir up


Old Seagrove residents


By TIANA LARSEN
A neighborhood meeting to
discuss options for roads in
Old Seagrove drew a very
large and vocal crowd of resi-
dents.
They were joined by two
county commissioners, Cindy
Meadows and Scott Brannon;
Russ Barry, county public
works director, and- Dan
Arner, county engineer.
Cliff Knauer, an engineer
with Preble-Rish, the firm
contracted to study the situ-
ation, also attended to help
explain the findings to con-
cerned property owners.
Barry led off by emphasiz-
ing an important point. "No
decisions have been made
and the area is not on the
county's paving list," he
stated.
The area under discussion
is known locally as Old
Seagrove. It is characterized
by narrow, unpaved roads
and many canopy trees.
A few years ago, a group of
residents became concerned
about the change in charac-
ter of the neighborhood that
would occur if the right-of-
way was cleared and asphalt
paving, flanked by
stormwater swales, took the
place of the current roads.
Fearing the loss of many
trees, they asked the county
to take them off the paving
list.
Last year, some residents
on Live Oak Street, in
Seagrove decided brick pav-
ers would be an attractive
alternative. Part of Live Oak
Street now has a narrow,
winding brick road, while the
rest remains unfinished, due
to a stop-work order by the
county. .
Like the rest of the streets
in Old Seagrove, Live Oak
Street is a county road, and
according to Walton County
Code Enforcement, the paver
installation was begun with-
out permits or a right-of-way
agreement with the county.
A group of citizens went to
the county and asked what
could be done, explained
Barry, which prompted the
study by Preble-Rish. The


county decided to leave the
Live Oak bricks in place un-
til a decision is made, and
this first neighborhood meet-
ing is the start of the deci-
sion-making process, he said.
Barry then presented five
options for consideration.
Option one would be to ask
the BCC to make the roads
private. In this case, the
county would no longer main-
tain the roads. Property own-
ers would need to provide
maintenance, and
stormwater permits from the
state would still be required
if any form of hard surface is
placed on the roads.
Option two would be for the
roads to stay with the county,
but be left in their current
condition. In this case the
county would continue to
maintain the roads. "I have
400 miles of unpaved roads
in the county. If the consen-
sus is "go away," then we will
go away," Barry said.
Option three would be
some form of paving, but not
like the normal county pav-
ing job, which consists of as-
phalt travel lanes and
stormwater swales. Knauer
elaborated on this option,
explaining that his firm has
surveyed the right-of-way
boundaries and the trees
larger than eight inches in
diameter, and prepared a
preliminary schematic of
one-way roads in the center
of the right-of-way.
Knauer could not say ex-
actly how much clearing
would need to take place for
one-way roads. The
stormwater treatment re-
quired would depend on the
soils analysis and further
engineering. Unless they are
left as dirt roads, the runoff
must be treated, Knauer em-
phasized.
This option would impact a
number of trees and has the
potential for disputes be-
tween neighbors, he thought.
An absolute minimum would
be 15 feet of paved surface
and 12 feet of shoulders, six
feet on each side.
Option four would be for
the neighbors to agree they


prefer brick pavers, pervious
concrete, or some other non-
standard surface, but, "The
county does not do this,"
Barry said.
The last option would be
standard county paving, with
the accompanying loss of
trees and right-of-way clear-
ing. According to Knauer, the
right-of-way is 45 feet on
most of the roads and 60 feet
in some places.
Citizens had a lot of ques-
tions, including why there
are no stormwater swales on
CR-30A and how WaterColor
handles their stormwater re-
tention. The answer to the
first question, according to
Knauer, is that the Depart-
ment of Transportation built
CR-30A a long time ago, be-
fore stormwater treatment
was a requirement, and then
gave it to the county.
The answer to the second
question is that WaterColor
retains its stormwater un-
derground, which is, Barry
said, very expensive and high
maintenance.
Meadows remarked that
property, owners should look,
think, and try to reach a con-
sensus on the options, which
should he ,put into writing.
"We probably will need to
have more meetings," she
said. "The county is not mak-
ing any decisions at this
time," Meadows said.
The map prepared by
Knauer will be put on the
county's website,
www.co.walton.fl.us, and will
be found under "Public
Works."
After the meeting, Canal
Street resident Jimmy
Carter told the Beach Breeze
he had a suggestion for a way
to solve the dust problem in
an environmentally friendly
way. This would be to install
an irrigation system, using
shallow wells, and run the
system-parallel to the streets
in Old Seagrove.
Irrigating the streets, us-
ing a timer, would be a simple
solution "to solve this prob-
lem that continues to divide
the neighborhood," Carter
said.


Code Enforcement asks


for citation authority


By TIANA LARSEN
Walton County's new code
enforcement coordinator,
Kevin Hargett, asked the
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) for the author-
ity to issue on-the-spot civil
citations when very serious
violations are taking place.
A civil citation would be
like a ticket, with a fine that
starts immediately attached
to it. The fine could either be
paid by the violator, or con-
tested in county court, simi-
lar to a traffic ticket.
However, in the case of a
code violation that remained
uncorrected, a new ticket
could be issued every day, if
necessary. Each day would be
a separate offense.
"We want to be able to do


something immediately a
ticket will have an effect,"
Hargett told the BCC at their
Feb. 1 meeting.
Hargett anticipated only
using a citation in very seri-
ous circumstances, which he
said would be threats to
health, safety and welfare of
community members, or in
cases where the damage was
irreparable, such as a viola-
tion of the white sands pro-
tection rules.
"It would be another tool
for us," Harget thought.
Some commissioners ex-
pressed concerns that crite-
ria for the use of a citation
had not been set forth clearly.
"We have to be careful it
doesn't become a quick-fix,"
said Commissioner Larry


Jones, who suggested limit-
ing its use to cases where a
stop-work order or a cease-
and-desist had already been
issued.
Commissioner Scott
Brannon agreed. "I want to
help but I 'vant to be sure it
is only used in special cir-
cumstances," he commented.

After some discussion,
Jones made a motion to grant
authority to use a citation
only in those cases where
stop-work and cease-and-de-
sist orders have been issued.
The motion passed 4-1. Com-
missioner Cindy Meadows
voted nay, ."Only because I
would like Code Enforcement
to have the full authority re-
quested," she explained.

Walton Beach renourishment

opponents seek continuance


By DOTTY NIST
As of press time on Feb. 8,
administrative hearings in
Walton County regarding the
proposed large-scale beach
renourishment project are
still scheduled to go on as'
planned later this month.

Feb. 21-25 are the dates set
aside for the scheduled hear-
ings. They will deal with an
administrative challenge to
the state Department of En-
vironmental Protection's'
(DEP) approval of the permit
to. renourish a six-mile sec-
tion of western Walton
County and Destin beaches.
However, DEP spokesper-
son Dee Ann Miller com-


mented on Feb. 8 that the
petitioners (opponents of the
project) had filed for a con-
tinuance of the Walton
County hearings: "(A)s of the
present time, that has not
been granted," Miller stated.
Meanwhile, a scheduled
hearing on a separate case
filed by members of the two
nonprofit groups opposing
the project (Stop the Beach
Renourishment, Inc. and
Save Our Beaches, Inc.) in
Leon County Circuit Court
has been postponed. The suit
challenges the constitution-
ality of the state statutes re-
lating to beach renourish-
ment. The hearing had been
set for March 3.


Aesthetics app


for townhouse

By DOTTY NIST
The Walton County Design
Review Board has signed off
on plans for aU.S. 98 project
that is to include townhomes
and commercial space.
Aquarian Development is
proposing The Havens, to
consist of 8400 square feet of
commercial (five bays) and 28
townhome units. The loca-
tion is south of U.S. 98 and
500 feet west of Sugar Drive.
The land use classification of


the property is Village Mixed
Use.
Since U.S. 98 is included in
south Walton's Scenic Corri-
dor, the plans were required
to. undergo review for aes-
thetics by the design review
board (DRB) on Feb. 3.
The DRB approval was
contingent on board member/
landscape architect Jake
Ingram and county planning
staff working with the appli-
cant to resolve initial land-


The postponement is re-
ported to be due to the groups
adding petitioners to the suit
and an amendment to their
complaint.
It is anticipated that the
postponed hearing will take
place on March 30.
The .first,two days of the
administrative hearings in
Walton County are to take
place in the South Walton

conference room, with the fol-
lowing three days' hearings
to be held at the South Wal-

WATER CONSERVATION

Washing Machines




A washing machine is the second largest water user in
your home, with toilets being the first. A traditional
washing machine uses approximately 41 gallons per load.
The best way to lower this usage is to buy a high
efficiency washing machine. These machines use 35-50%
less water and 50% less energy per load. This will save
you money on both your water and energy bills.

No matter what kind of washing machine you have. here
are some basic tips that can reduce water use for washing
clothes.

Operate the washer with full loads only even if the
machine has an adjustable setting. A full load is the
most efficient way to wash clothes.

If your washer has a variable water volume setting,
select the minimum amount required per load.

Pre-treat stains to avoid rewashing.

Use the shortest wash cycle for the lightly soiled
loads.

Check your washing machine hoses regularly for
cracks that would result in leaks.

at the Feb. 7 meeting, Kane
having resigned just one
week ago. Kane had served
in his position since June
2002 and had logged over 16
years in fire service.
Kane had praised the
SWFD highly in his Jan. 27
resignation letter.
"I will relish the time spent
at SWFD. I can think of no
finer organization in which to
spend one's final years,"
Kane wrote.
Kane, enthusiastic by na-
ture, credited his decision to
resign at this time to a "de-
cline of passion" for his job
due to two recent "significant
incidents" involving tragic
loss of life in Walton County.
The incidents, both occurring
within the past few years,
took an emotional toll on the
county as a whole and espe-
cially on the SWFD and other
local emergency responders.
One involved the drowning
deaths of four swimmers on
June 8, 2003 during unusu-
ally dangerous surf condi-
tions in the gulf, the
drownings despite respond-
ers' heroic rescue of dozens of
other swimmers in trouble.

The other involved the Nov.
2004 death of SWFD para-
medic Robert Heighton and
two other AirHeart air ambu-
lance personnel, Tom Palcic
and Jack Chase, in a helicop-
ter crash. A combination of
bad weather and an alleged
deviation from dispatch pro-
tocol were judged to have
contributed to the fatalities.
Since the initiation of
AirHeart service to the area
in 2002, the SWFD has pro-
vided paramedics to staff the
helicopters through a part-
nership arrangement.
The SWFD was not in-
volved in dispatching for
AirHeart at the time of the
crash but assumed that re-


From Front
sponsibility soon afterward.
Kane thanked the organi-
zation for the "experiences
and friendship."
"He was a dedicated, loyal
employee to the South Wal-
ton Fire District, and we wish
him the best," SWFD Chief
Les Hallman said of his re-
cently departed deputy chief.
Hallman said plans regard-
ing the filling of the deputy
chief position will be an-
nounced at a later date.
Also at the Feb. 7 meeting,
two AirHeart paramedics,
Roger Phillips and Ryan
Crawford, were awarded
"wings" and certificates
marking one year of out-
standing service by both
men, during which time each
participated in the successful
transfer of over 50 patients.
Wayne Weir, chief pilot for
AirHeart, presented the
awards.
Hallman announced the
official transfer of SWFD
Station 2 (the new Seagrove
Station) to the district by the
St. Joe Company. The com-
pany provided the station
site in lieu of fire impact fees
and provided partial funding
for the construction of the
new station. SWFD person-
nel have been operating from
the station for approximately
six months. A grand opening
ceremony for the station is
envisioned for early March.
The March 7 SWFD meet-
ing is scheduled for 4 p.m. at
the Walton County Emer-
gency Operations Center
(EOC) on Davis Lane in De-
Funiak Springs. The fire
commissioners will meet
with Ed Baltzley, county
EOC chief. This meeting and
all SWFD regular board
meetings are open to the pub-
lic.

pedestrian safety, parking, stormwater and other infrastructure have been prepared. The

SOME OF THE PROBLEMS along Scenic Gulf Drive include right-of-way encroach-
ments, landscaping, bike path safety, road stripping, signage, stormwater and parking.
"We now know where the right-of-way is, and what is in it," Commissioner Cindy Meadows
said. The county wants to partner with businesses, homeowners, condominium associa-
tions and other affected parties to make improvements. Commissioner Meadows wants
input on these issues, after which there will be a proposal and then another meeting. "Please
get involved," she said. Meadows office phone number is 622-3059, or an email can be sent
to the engineer at this address: scenicgulfdrive@preble-rish.com.


THERE ARE A LOT OF CROSSWALKS on Scenic Gulf Drive, and pedestrians often just
cross anywhere. A landscaping plan, standard signage and other improvements would help
direct people to the crosswalks, which may be consolidated in safer locations as part of an
overall improvement plan. Funding would come from the county; the Board of County Com-
missioners would have to make a request to fund the project. State designation as a Florida
Scenic Highway, a designation the District 5 office is working towards, could help obtain
grant money as well.


NON-STANDARD SIGNS abound along Scenic Gulf Drive. A project is in the works to
standardize signage, coordinate stormwater, bike path and crosswalk locations, identify
off-street parking, and generally improve the safety conditions and traffic flow along the
popular beach corridor.

We just sold 2.56 acres on Hwy. 331 in Freeport in about
21 minutes. With a crowd of over fifty interested
participants, we had spirited bidding and concluded a
successful auction of the entire tract.

When you get ready to sell your property, don't overlook
one of the most effective methods of marketing and
selling real estate. The Auction Process delivers true
market value and provides a level of convenience not
found in traditional real estate marketing.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 2005


OWC has again or-
ganized and sched-
uled an exciting line-
up of Broadway,
dance and opera.
The college has
proven once again
that the Emerald
Coast of Florida is a
mecca for cultural
events.

The Okaloosa-Waltpn Col-
lege has for the past several
years, brought top-name
entertainers, Tony Award-


winning Broadway shows
and treasured operas to the
Performing Arts Center in

Niceville. This year the slate
of performances are even
more'impressive and atten-
tion-grabbing than ever be-
fore.
Last week, the center pre-
sented the story of George
Burns and Gracie Allen in
Say Good Night, Gracie.
They were tagged as
America's sweetheart
couple, and Burns was seen
as a one of America's most
beloved comedic icons.
Jamie Pharr, from the hit
sitcom M*A*S*H, trans-
formed himself into the


loveable Burns character.
Next on the roster is Feb.
14 and 22 as the center pres-
ents Cookin', A Sizzling En-
tertainment and Cirque
Eloize "Rain." Two top-billed
shows with vary different
mood-setting surprises.
Cookin' has been called a
mixture of a visit to Be-
nihana and, Manhattan
rush- hour. Four chefs slice,
dice, chop, drum, juggle and
fight their way to a sizzling
climax as they prepare an
edible meal on stage.
The Korean cast is a combi-
nation of Julia Childs and
Emeril Lagasse, but with
percussions.
If you like the thrills and
spills of acrobatics, then the
center's second performance
of the month, Rain, will have
you cheering on Feb. 22. The
show will dazzle the audi-
ence with a blend of circus
acrobatics, theater and
dance all accompanied by
inspired instrumentals.
Cirque Eloize has captured
audiences around the world
and the climax of the show
has audiences standing to
cheer and talking for days


CARMEN


COOKING'


afterwards.
From the cuts, chops, danc--
ing and acrobatics, to the
sensual and romantic sounds
of opera, OWC's March 4
performance of Carmen will
take you back to old Spain.
A story that was trans-
formed into an operatic clas-
sic, Carmen is the story of a
woman and her true spirit.
One of the world's most loved
operas, Carmen is said to in-
spire and cause lovers to fall
in love all over again.


The traditional version of
the opera classic will be per-
formed in French with Eng-
lish subtitles above the
stage.
For many, the stage offers
much more in the next sev-
eral months include the fol-
lowing performances and
dates:
* The Stars of Tomorrow,
featuring the 18th Annual
Concerto Competition Win-
ners, Feb. 28.
*Mighty Beethoven, featur-


ing Anna Polusmiak, the
Northwest Florida Sym-
phony Orchestra and an all-
star cast of vocalists, April
15.
The OWC Performing Arts
Center also houses the McIl-
roy and Holzhauer galleries
that have various exhibits
throughout the year.
For more information, or
ticket reservations to any of
the upcoming productions,
exhibits or shows, call the
OWC box office at 729-6000.
