FDLE investigating


deputy's fatal


shooting of intruder


THE CHILDREN'S ADVOCACY CENTER in Niceville (above) is the first and best line

By BRUCE COLLIER
The Florida Department of
Law Enforcement is investi-
gating a Walton County
Sheriff's deputy's fatal shoot-
ing of a alleged intruder on
the night of February 8.
According to Walton
County Sheriff Ralph
Johnson, 32- year-old Deputy
Bradley Stafford was sleep-
ing in his residence at
Springs East Apartments in
DeFuniak Springs when he
was awakened by banging on
the front door.
The door was kicked in and
22-year-old Travis Bums, an-
other Springs East resident,
entered. A brief struggle fol-
lowed, then Stafford shot
Burns once with his police-
issued Beretta pistol. The
bullet struck Burns' upper
body, killing him.
According to the Florida
Department of Corrections,
Burns was currently on pro-
bation for possession of co-
caine and other offenses com-
mitted in Walton County.
Stafford has been a sheriff's
deputy for three years, and
has no record of disciplinary
action or reprimands against


him. Sheriff's Office spokes-
man Capt. Danny Glidewell
declined to comment on the
investigation, except to con-
firm that Stafford is on lim-
ited administrative duty
pending outcome of the in-
vestigation.

Florida Department of Law
Enforcement spokesperson
Lisa Lagergren said that
toxicology reports are pend-
ing on both Burns and
Stafford. The investigation,
including firearms tests and
witness interviews, could
take several weeks to com-
plete.
In the meantime, an occur-
rence at the DeFuniak
Springs Pizza Hut on
Wednesday, February 9, has
Stafford considering his legal
options. Stafford reports that
after spending the day with
relatives and friends search-
ing for a new place to live, the
group decided to go to Pizza
Hut for dinner. Upon enter-
ing the restaurant, the group
was waiting to be seated. A
delivery driver acquaintance
of Stafford's asked him to
step outside and talk.


Stafford says the delivery
driver told him that because
of the shooting incident, no
one in the restaurant wanted
to serve him. "I was angry,
and my feelings were hurt,
but I kept my temper," says
Stafford. He went back into
the restaurant and told his
group that they were leaving,
which they did.
A person in Pizza Hut
management, preferring to
be anonymous, confirmed
that Pizza Hut's human re-
sources department has in-
vestigated the incident.
"They interviewed Deputy
Stafford and everyone at the
restaurant. Appropriate ac-
tion has been taken, and the
matter is closed." The source
declined to give details of
that action.
Stafford is considering pos-
sible legal recourse concern-
ing the Pizza Hut incident,
but declined to say whether
he has retained an attorney.
Stafford also refused to com-
ment on details of the shoot-
ing, pending outcome of the
investigation. "I just did
what any man would do," he
said.


Gulf Power contributes

to Hall of Brotherhood


Freeport to process


When Wallace Bruce took
over as president of the
Florida Chautauqua 1893,
the Florida Chautauqua had
accumulated a deficit of
$19,000. So what did he do?
He brought in bands, orches-
tras, entertainment acts,


contests, sports, exhibits, and
moving pictures. And the
Florida Chautauqua flour-
ished.
Wallace Bruce had visions
of more growth, so he sold
subscriptions to construct a
Hall of Brotherhood styled


after the U.S. capital build-
ing. It was rather an ambi-
tious endeavor for a town
with a population of under
1,000, but he did it.

Joshua Montalvo entered
pleas of not guilty to charges
of lewd and lascivious bat-
tery, lewd and lascivious mo-
lestation, and lewd and las-
civious exhibition on Febru-
ary 15 before Judge Kelvin
Wells.
Also in court that day was
Montalvo's wife, Shelly Dell


Montalvo, who pled not
guilty to a charge of child
neglect. Both have retained
separate attorneys, and
Shelly Montalvo is out on
bond. Joshua Montalvo, cur-
rently in custody, had filed a
motion for bond reduction

that motion will be heard at


a later date.
Montalvo was arrested at
the end of January on
charges involving his minor
stepdaughter and her
friends.
Also in court was Dawn


Theresa White, who pled not
guilty to the charge of grand
theft. White was recently ar-
rested in connection with the
alleged misappropriation of
some $350,000 from the De-
Funiak Springs McDonald's.


John W. Sims entered a
written plea of not guilty to
a charge of attempted lewd
and lascivious molestation of
a victim over 12 and under
16 years of age. The plea had
already been entered, and


Sims, out on bond, was not
present in court.
White and the Montalvos
have a trial date on May 9.
Sims has other charges
pending.

The art, of storytelling


By RON KELLEY
As a child, I remember sitting around the supper table or
in the corner of the family room and listening to the adults
talk. Growing up as an only child and in a neighborhood
without large numbers of children, I spent a lot of time
around adults and remember listening as they discussed
*various events of the day, local happenings and long ago
stories about their lives, people they had known and things
they had done.
As always, there were certain ones who had a way with a
story. Every large family has at least one or two. Our family
historian, George Marion Edge, my uncle, had a prolific
memory and could recall events from 30 or 40 years ago
better than I can recall what I did yesterday. He could re-
call routes he'd taken when visiting family out of state, which
year he traveled them and what city he'd stopped in for the
night. Amazing.
My father was also a great storyteller. I can remember
laughing until tears streamed down my face as he recalled
uproarious episodes from his past. He could tell a dramatic
story with equal flare, keeping my attention riveted until
the very end.





Editor,
Major David Wilson, administrator at the Greater Phila-
delphia Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center, sug-
gests you donate' clothes and shoes that don't fit or aren't
your style, but if you wouldn't wear something because it's
too shabby, discard it. The same rules apply to furniture.
Ask yourself, would you use or wear it? It doesn't cost to
take rejects to landfill.
Doris Banks
DeFuniak Springs

LETE O HEEITOR


My father and my uncle are both gone now and how I
-miss their stories, even the ones I'd heard over and over.
What I'd give now to hear again, the story about the hapless
truck driver trying to get a frightened cow to stand up in
the back of a loaded cattle truck during a heavy rain storm
or how my uncle's best ladder was stolen one night and by
whom:
I wish now that I had sat them down in front of a camera
or tape recorder so that I could have saved and preserved
all those wonderful tales.
It's too late for me, but it may not be too late for you. Grab
that camcorder or mini-cassette and visit your parents,
grandparents, aunts and uncles, and sit down with them
and jog their memories and get them to tell you the old sto-
ries again.
They'll tell you of days and events that will never come
again; stories that, once they themselves are gone, will be
forgotten and never told again.
I promise that you'll enjoy hearing them again. Not only
will you have some things to tell your own children and
grandchildren, you may learn a thing, or two and you'll be
sharing some time that, one day, you'll be glad you spent.
I can remember hearing stories that would certainly liven
up a few Grit & Grace productions, but many of the details
are lost to me now and beyond my ability to recall.
Don't make my mistake. Preserve those stories. As any
writer can tell you, any story worth telling is worth telling
again.
Preserve those stories and you'll also be preserving the
storyteller and the wonderful, rich history that is your heri-
tage, your birthright and your gift to your children and the,
many generations to come.



L E '


The Florida Legislature is
considering ideas, to address
the future of Medicaid with
the goal of ensuring quality
of care, improving efficiency
in the delivery of services,
and facilitating sustainable
growth in Medicaid expendi-
tures.
To encourage public par-
ticipation in the process, the
Senate and House Select
Committees on Medicaid Re-
form are jointly conducting a
series of public hearings
throughout the state, includ-
ing one on Friday, February
25, 12:00-3:00 (CST), at the
Gulf Coast Community Col-
lege Student Union East
Conference Room, located on
the 2nd floor.
The purpose of the public
hearing is to gather informa-
tion from Medicaid recipi-
ents, health care providers,
and other interested parties
who may be affected by
,changes to Florida's Medic-
aid program. We need your
innovative ideas on how to
reduce the rapid growth in
Medicaid expenditures while
continuing to provide needed
services to Florida's low-in-
come, elderly, and disabled.
The committees will also so-
licit input on the governor's
proposal to reform Medicaid.
The hearings will begin
with an overview of the goals
of the Select Committees.
Members of the public then
will be invited to speak. If
you want to address the com-
Smittees, you will need to sign
in before the meeting; doors


Editor,
In reply to Lynn Walton's letter to the editor dated Febru-
ary 10, I don't know how you got this information, but I do
not agree with you and, if this is also President Bush's plan,
I do not agree with him either.
This would not be the first time a low income person who
does not make over $10,000 a year would not agree with
Mr. Bush. That is why most of the low income people who
voted, did not vote for Mr. Bush for president. All his plans
help the rich and hurt the low-income people like myself.
4hynot? A rich president like B.ush is always going to help
the rich people who voted for-himA. .,..
You wrote that all income tax, including Social Security
and Medicare payroll taxes would be eliminated for both
individuals and corporations. Most people who work don't
make much moneS, and don't have to pay income tax. The
only people who would profit is the manufacturers and the
rich people. If we the people who live in the United States
let people like you and President Bush kill Social Security
and Medicare payroll taxes, what will happen to people like
myself and others who will depend on Social Security and
Medicare in the next two years?
We would not be having problems with Social Security if
the government would not have taken money out of the So-
Scial Security fund to be used to pay other bills. This has
been going on for over twenty years and the money has never
been put back into Social Security. Every time the govern-,
ment needs money they put their hands into the Social Se-
curity pot. This must stop.
Write your letter to Congress and inform your represen-
tatives not to co-sponsor the president's tax reform, because
it will only help the corporations, not you. Let them know
that if they vote for this tax reform, you will not elect them
into office with your vote next time they run for Congress.
It is time for people to stand up to the president and Con-
gress and say no, before we pay the price, because this plan
is not a fair tax but a consumption tax.

Editor,
Thank you for the recent story about the new health club
located in downtown DeFuniak. It is always a pleasure to
see that our historic downtown buildings can be revitalized
and put to uses that those of us who grew up here never
dreamed.
Although not in the downtown area, there is another his-
toric building in town that has been restored and remod-
eled for similar use. That is the building most of us know as
the "the old skating rink" on U.S. 331 South. Like the health
club downtown, the new-Quik'n Fit is a woman's health, -u-,
die-that offers, in-addition to a 24-station exercise circuit,
state-of-the-art aerobic equipment, nutritional classes and
behavioral change classes. The Chautauqua Health &
Wellness Center, in which the exercise studio is located, also
offers exercise classes, massage therapy, facials,, counseling
and physical therapy. Personal certified training is avail-
able if desired. It is truly an all-purpose facility for the health
conscious.
Aging Baby Boomers, as well as younger patrons, love the
1960's music provided for their workouts. If just walking.
into the "bld skating rink" doesn't put a spring in your step,
the Beach Boys are sure to. Managers and assistants are
friendly and attentive and helpful. The center is open from
6 am.-8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and Saturday from
10 a.m.-2 p.m. You can choose to work out when the place is
really jumpin' or come in early and enjoy a more relaxed
atmosphere.
The center is locally-owned and operated and deserves,
our patronage as it contributes to the revitalization of our
wonderful towi.

Boyd blasts administration's

budget for nation's farmers


Congressman Allen Boyd,
criticized the adminis-
tration's 2006 budget for the
proposed cuts to the nation's
farmers.
The administration's bud-
get reduces funding for farm
subsidies by five percent over
the next decade while also
'placing a cap on payments to-
farmers at $250,000.
"Americans deserves a fis-
cally responsible budget that
does not shortchange our ag-
ricultural community," said'
Congressman Boyd. "As a
farmer myself, I understand
the critical role the federal
government plays by giving
agricultural producers a real
safety net. I will continue to
work in Congress to fight any
attempt to cut payments to


our farmers."
The administration's bud-
get also calls for a 13 percent
cut in agricultural research
funding and a 17 percent cut
to agricultural conservation
programs. *

"Not only does the
administration's budget add.
to our nation's debt, but it
also fails to represent the real
needs' of the American
people," Congressman Boyd
stated. "Vital to the state's
economy, agriculture is a $62
billion industry in Florida,
illustrating the importance of
,our agriculture producers. I
will continue to provide north
Florida's farmers with the
voice in Washington they
need in order to prosper."'

Miller advocates

Bush's Social Security plan


In a release from the office
of U.S. Representative Jeff
Miller of Pensacola, the con-
gressman spoke in favor of
NPresident George Bush's plan
tfo privatize a portion of indi-
vidual Social Security ac-
counts.
"Congress must and will
protect Social Security for the
46 million beneficiaries now
on the rolls and for the mil-
lions of Americans who will
one day rely on the program.
Currently, 'the Social Secu-
rity Trust Funds will be ex-
hausted in 2041. Although
that is three years later than
last year's estimate, we must
ensure that the system is
sustainable into the future,"
said Miller.
"Social Security reforms
should not reduce the ben-
efits of current retirees or
those who are close to retire-
ment. These workers have
spent a lifetime paying their,
payroll taxes in exchange for
the promise that they will
receive a set level of benefits.
Americans have a moral ob-
ligation to pay them every
cent that has been promised,
including an: annual cost-of-
living increase to replace the
loss of buying power caused
by inflation.
"However, at the same
time, younger workers
should have the opportunity
to receive a higher retire-
ment income that the current
system will be able to pay by
the time they can retire.
Workers retiring after about
2042 can really expect to re-
ceive only about 73 percent
or. less of what they are be-
ing promised. A reasonable
reform would allow them the
opportunity to improve their
retirement incomes by in-
vesting a portion of their cur-
rent payroll taxes".
Congressman Miller said,
at this time in Congress,


there are plans that seek to
create voluntary individual
retirement accounts to re-
place the current system, and
others that would retain plr'"
of the current system while'
adding individual accounts.
"I believe establishing Per-
sonal Retirement Accounts
(PRA's) is one real solution
that will give future retirees
the option to receive an im-
proved standard of living in
retirement."
"Meeting these obligations
without reforms will force
our children and grandchil-
* dren to pay crushing payroll
taxes, which will sharply re-,
duce their standard of living.
In addition, because payroll
taxes are essentially a levy
on jobs, substantial payroll
tax increases will reduce eco-
nomic growth and kill jobs.
Raising taxes is not an op-
tion; real reform is critical.
"Whatever emerges from
Congress and is signed into
law will likely not be identi-
cal to any one proposal pre-
sented to Congress. It may
contain key elements from a
number of specific proposals.
As this process unfolds, how-
ever, it is critical that we are
committed to maintaining a
clear picture of the frame-
work needed for reform and
what variants of basic ideas
can be accommodated with-
out undermining the basic
goals of reform. We must en-
gage in true debate on these
proposals before tossing out
so-called "partisan ideas,"
said Miller.
"The Ways and Means Sub-
committee on Social Security,
which has jurisdiction over
this issue, has not scheduled
any action, but you may be
certain that I am committed
to protecting Social Security
and finding a real solution for
our children, grandchildren,
and beyond."


Council serves residents in four counties: Escarmbia, Santa
Rosa, Okaloosa and Walton. The ombudsman's job is to pro-
tect the rights of residents, assure that each complaint is
investigated by visiting each facility to evaluate conditions
and conduct annual inspections.
Qualified and caring volunteers are needed to serve all
four counties. For additional information regarding the
Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program or information on
the council, contact the coordinator at (850) 595-8013 or 1-

Who puts the "Smart" in smart weapons


ROTARY CLUB guest speaker Colonel "Chuck" Wolfe.



Accident at toll


plaza injures two


Colonel Chuck Wolfe en-
lightened the members of the
Rotary Club concerning the
Air Force .Munitions Re-
search Labs at Eglin Air
Force Base. According to
Colonel Wolfe's presentation,
the first bombs that were
used during WWI changed
the way wars are fought. The
military no longer had to
worry about what was com-
ing from ahead or behind
them but did have to pay at-
tention to what might come
from the air above their
heads. These first bombs
were dropped by the airmen
leaning out of the plane and
just physically dropping
small bombs by hand. They
used their, best guess as to
when to drop the bombs and
hoped they would land where
intended. Due to the lack of
precision, several drops were


needed to hit a target.
Today, of course, we have
progressed to one laser bomb
for one target. The GSS
weapons can be used, day or
night, in all types of weather
and can use sensors to detect
the target with precision.
Where is the future of
smart bombs/munitions? Ac-
cording to Colonel Wolfe, the
imagination is the limit. The
group of scientists and engi-
neers at the Eglin Munitions
Directorate are working on
the concept of 100 targets in
a single sortie.
The Munitions Directorate
is located in various facilities
and labs at.Eglin. The ord-
nance division deals with ex-
plosives, fuzzes, and war-
heads. The advanced guid-
ance division works with
seekers, signal and image
processing, navigation and


control (GPS) and guidance
simulation. Some of the is-
sues that are being ad-
dressed by the group are
fewer bases in our battle
space and finding ways to
access the battle space; hard
targets, deep caves and tun-
nels: and counter prolifera-
tion chemicals.
According to Wolfe, the
MOAB bomb was developed
at Eglin by the munitions
group. It weighed 21,000
pounds and was 30 feet long.
It was deployed but never
used. One portion of Wolfe's
video presentation showed
one of the latest technologies
used, LADAR. A munitions/
bomb is programmed to
match an image of the target
with the actual target on the
ground. Questions were
raised about accuracy. Wolfe


stated that targets are lo-
cated using GPS. Anti-jam-
ming technologies have been
developed and are used to
keep the enemy from jam-
ming the signals.
The mission of the Muni-
tions Directorate is to de-
velop, integrate and transi-
tion science and technology
for air launched munitions
for defeating ground, air, and
space targets. To assure pre-
eminence of US air and space
forces, the Munitions Direc-
torate is rooted in technology
with its number one goal air
supremacy. Wolfe thanked
the group and the community
for its continued support of
the military and told the
group how much it meant to
the troops to know that their
community stood behind
them.

School district looks at accountability


The Walton County School
District Financial Advisory
Committee was organized by
the Walton County School
Board to help provide ac-
countability for the .5 mill
special election proceeds,.
The committee met on
January 6, 2005. The com-
mittee membership consisted
of Sonya Alford, Mark Davis,
Dixie Burge, Kenneth. Jack-
son, Ken Little, Jim McCall,
Marsha Pugh, Carl Rush, Dr.
Robert Stainback and Cindy
Wade. Superintendent


Carlene Anderson also at-
tended and participated in
the discussions.
The committee reviewed
its charge to help insure that
funds would be available to
maintain the quality of the
school system. In so doing
they looked at appropriations
and expenditures for reduc-
ing class sizes, providing up-
to-date instructional materi-
als, providing for after-school
and gifted programs, provid-
ing for such extra-curricular
activities as music, art, ath-


letics, band, chorus, and sci-
ence fairs, providing for qual-
ity pay, and providing for
safe schools (school resource
officers). They examined
these programs and activi-
ties in total and by school.
School district members of
the committee described
many of these programs and
how use of .5 mill funds and
other funds insured their ef-
fectiveness.
The total estimated cost of
these programs is


$4,926,000. The estimated
millage proceeds of
$3,838,000, less a reserve of
$750,000, provides
$3,088,000 for these pro-
grams, leaving $1,838,000
provided from other district
funds. The reserve of
$750,000, if continued for.
four .years and combined
with current reserve, should
provide the District with a
total reserve of $4,200,000 by
June 30,2007. The school-by-
school analysis indicates that
all schools are included in


USDA tree assistance program begins


Agricultural landowners in
need of financial relief for
trees, bushes, vines, and for-
est land damaged by natural
disasters that occurred be-
tween December 1, 2003, and
December 31, 2004, have a
new option for help through
the USDA's Tree Assistance
Program (TAP), according to
FSA Walton County Execu-
tive Director Jeff Barber.
Agriculture Secretary
Mike Johanns announced
that sign-up for the USDA's


Tree Assistance Program
(TAP) began February 7,
2005. Funding for TAP was
authorized by the Military
Construction and Emergency
Hurricane Supplemental Ap-
propriations Act, 2005 (2005
Appropriations Act), and
signed into law by President
Bush last October.
"This legislation," said
Johanns, "provides more
than $3 billion in relief to
farmers, ranchers, foresters
and other agricultural pro-


ducers who suffered damage
due to severed weather in
recent years." TAP is the first
of several programs to be
launched in 2005 to help pro-
ducers recover from natural
disasters that occurred in
2003 and 2004.
The sign-up period for Gen-
eral TAP, TAP-Timber, and
TAP-Pecans will end either
on March 18,2005, or 14 cal-
endar days after the Federal
Register Notice is published.
Approved funding for the


TAP programs includes,
funding for General' TAP
which is available for eligible
orchardists, funding for.reha-,
bilitation and related costs'
for pecan trees destroyed or
damaged as a result of tropi-
cal storms;, hurricanes, and
related events that were lo-
cated in a presidential-disas-
ter declared county, and
funding for forest timber
owners for replanting.

Flooding-Florida's no. 1 natural disaster


With spring just around
the corner, officials from
Florida's State Emergency
Response Team (SERT) and
the Department of Homeland
Security's Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency
(FEMA) are encouraging
property owners to purchase
flood insurance policies now
to protect themselves from
flood losses.
"Flooding can occur any-
time, anywhere, particularly


during the spring months,"
said Craig Fugate, state co-

ordinating officer for SERT.
"Having flood insurance is
one of the most important
things people can do to help
themselves recover from
such' an event."
Eighty percent of Florida's
15 million residents live or
work near a coast. Many oth-
ers live near the state's riv-
ers or other inland flood-


plains.
Overburdened drainage
systems may lead to property
damage well outside flood
plains. Increased growth and
development change natural
drainage and create un-
planned paths for runoff. The
result is that most Florida
residents face the dangers of
flooding.
Despite the high risks of
flood-related losses, more
than half of Florida property


owners in flood hazard areas
do not carry this insurance.
Florida has more than 1.1
million uninsured homes lo-
cated within floodplains.
Consumers can visit
www.FloodSmart.gov or call
1-800-427-2419 to learn how
to prepare for floods, how to
purchase a national flood in-
surance policy and how to
protect their'homes and
property against flooding.

By BRUCE COLLIER
"Luvy," Murray, Schisgal's
wry comedy of a neurotic ro-
mantic triangle, opens'this
week at Milton's Imogene
Little Theatre. "Luv" fea-
tures a cast drawn from Ft.
Walton Beach and Pensacola,
and is directed by DeFuniak
Springs' own Alicia Leonard.
The Imogene Theatre is an
historic theatre/opera house
built around 1912. The the-
atre is used not only for
plays, but for wedding recep-
tions and other civic and
business events. Imogene
Little Theatre's plays re-
hearse at the nearby head-
quarters of the Womens Club
of Milton and the local
Shakespeare Society, who
have donated their space to
the Imogene Little Theatre.
This production moved sets
and actors into the theatre
10 days before opening. The
Herald attended a recent re-
hearsal of the show, which
opens Thursday, February 17
and runs through February
20,
"Luv'' features a cast of
three,a nd is played on a
simple set, representing a


bridge in New York. The first
act of'"Luv" begins with a
chance encounter between
successful businessman Milt,
Manville and Harry Berlin,
his sad-sack college buddy.
Milt stops Harry from jump-
ing off the bridge in despair,
then talks him into running_
off with Ellen, Milt's overedu,
dated, underloved spouse.
The second act takes place
months later, with a chance
encounter between Milt and
Ellen. It seems that neither,
is happy without the other.
Or, it 'seems, with the other.
"Luv" makes lighthearted
fun of self-centered, overly
analytical people who
wouldn't know love if it hit
them over the head. The play
was a Broadway hit in the
late 1960s, and was later
made into a film and a musi-
cal.
Joe Perna of Ft. Walton
Beach plays Harry Berlin, a
hapless romantic who has
frittered away the promise of
his college years in a pathetic
search for the meaning of life.
Harryis unemployed.. and
nearly broke. He is also sub-
ject to bizarre, hilarious fits


of paralysis, deafness, and
speechlessness. Perna, a vet-
eran of Stage Crafters, plays
Harry as an infuriatingly sad
clown, steadfastly rejecting
every opportunity for happi-
ness.


using a chart, facts and fig-
ures. Parker plays Ellen like
a cracked opera heroine, al-
ternately dancing with joy
and whining with despair.
All three actors work well
as an ensemble, handling the
physical and verbal comedy.


David Chancellor, also of Leonard's direction makes

In 1934, Mayor Flournoy

CAC CARING ABOUT CHILDREN


B' RON KELLEY


S"It's for the children." That often-repeated phrase is popular with all kinds of
people, organizations and agencies, many of whom are promoting their own
private agenda and seeking public funds to do it.
However, at the Children's Advocacy Center in Niceville, it's not just a phrase,
it's their reason for existing.
The Emerald Coast Children's Advocacy Center (CAC) is a non-profit agency
that provides a myriad of services to abused children from Okaloosa and Wal-
ton counties.
In the past. children who suffered sexual, emotional or physical abuse had
been forced to undergo a multitude of interviews with police investigators, at-
turneys, doctors and therapists. Taken from office to office, the process was
often almost as traumatic as the abuse itself. Recognizing this, a group ofcon-
cerned local people sought to find a better way...and the CAC was born.
The first thing one notices when approaching the center is that it does not
look like a government law enforcement-legal-medical facility. It looks like a
large, rambling, comfortable home with a manicured lawn, flowers and shade
trees.
Inside, the decor is very warm and inviting, especially to kids. There are play
rooms filled with toys and furniture built to fit little people. Everything is de-
signed to put a scared, anxious child at ease. Nothing is threatening; every-
thing looks soft and cozy.
CAC Executive Director Julie Hurst says there is a good reason for this.
"When a child comes here, it's because they've been abused in some way. We're
here to help and getting that help should not be as traumatic as the abuse
itself.
"Cluldi'en used to have to go to a number of different places if something
happened to them law enforcement, the doctor, the DCF Department of Chil-
dren and Families) to be interviewed, then to therapists and typically, chil-
dren would break down during the process," said Hurst.
At first, the CAC was a kind of stand alone facility where all the law enforce-
ment and medical teams came from different places to see the children at one
location. That soon evolved into a center where the other agencies established
permanent offices and kept staff on duty on a full-time basis.
"The criminal justice system was not made for children, it was made for
adults," said Hurst. "So, we've created our own system here for them and as
you can see. it's all for kids. It's not an adult place, it's a kid place where we
hope to reduce trauma and provide better services for kids.
"We've been open for about four and half years now and we've seen about
4.000 kids.
"We're now spending more time in Walton County. The need has always been
there. In this last year, we were able to hire a second therapist. The kids can
still come here for the interview, but to help lessen the burden for families to
travel, we are seeing kids in Walton County. We use the child's protective team
office in Walton County and our therapist goes over there every week.
"We started doing that in October and. so far, we've seen about 15 children.
We also provide services to siblings and family members, caretakers. Fortu-
nately, our guidelines are not overly restrictive. We see kids until they're done
- no matter how long that takes.
"Our job is to help all these agencies help the children, whatever that takes."
Part of what it takes is money. CAC organizers stay busy with fund-raisers.
golf and tennis tournaments and lots of other activities to raise money and
awareness within the Okaloosa and Walton communities.
One of those campaigns is called "Kondos for Kids" and its already off to a
great start, thanks to Sandestin, Pehcan Beach. Century 2.-Surfside Rentals,
Premier Beach Propertie- and Cornerstone Development. On Jan. 25. Mike
i,-I' ....'_::n ,=tin pre rt.li h,:- .- w..-ith '. *I- .r 15,000, i .i that',ju-t
the beginning.
The Kondos for Kids program works like this: a group of donors buys a condo-
nminiunm, while it's in the pre-construction phase. Just before its finished, the
condo is sold. The owners receive a tax write-off and the CAC gets the income
from the sale.
Condo owners can also agree to donate a certain number of days worth of
their rental income to the CAC and allow the rental management companies
the opportunity to match their donations.
The CAC receives funds from United Way, as well as state grant funding.
"Raising funds is a never-ending process," said Hurst. "We have to be prepared
to take up the slack when grants expire, to make sure there's no interruption
in our services.
While providing children's services is work. Hurst and other staff members
say that the CAC is more than just a job. "It's the most rewarding thing that
any of us can ever do," she said. "The CAC is unique."
"We had a case where a seven-year-old boy had been prostituted by his mother
and "perved" on by his grandfather and the case actually went to trial. And I
remember one of our staffers sitting down in the kitchen eating cookies with
this child, getting him ready for trial. You can't do that anywhere else.
"That child was uninhibited and happy and that child got up on the stand
and testified against his grandfather and his grandfather is in prison and he
was removed from his mother. He got adopted by a very nice family.
S'Under the old system. I don't think there would have been that kind of happy
ending."

Happy 50th
Wedding Anniversary
February 18, 1955-
February 18, 2005


Fifty years ago when you said, "I do".
It started out just two of you.
Now, fifty years later, how your love has grown.
Thirty-seven additions to your
small humble home.
As the years have gone by you have laughed and cried,
But you always showed us who stood by your side.
God held your hands when things got rough;
But He never promised love wouldn't be tough.
You've been through hard times like most people do,
But instead of giving up you leaned on
God to pull you through.
He's used you to preach and witness for Him.
You've set an example that has never been dim.
That Christ is the only true way
To make it in this sad world today.
So, as you celebrate your fiftieth anniversary today,
Please know we all love you,
And thank God each day,
For blessing us with wonderful parents,
That you are in every way.


With love from your children,

POST OFFICE LOCATED on south side of railroad tracks was in operation from 1969-
1998.


Rita Mehlhorn


Postmaster of


Argyle retires

Le Q/m


ewmwla


'On January 31, 2005. Post-
master Rita Mehlhorn re-
tired after 24 years of serv-
ing the Argyle community.
On January 21, 2005, a
surprise retirement celebra-
tion was given by Mrs. Shari
Hernandez, a close friend
and former postmaster relief
clerk at the Argyle Post Of-
fice. Approximately 30
friends, family and fellow
postmasters attended the cel-
ebration held at "Mom &
Dads Restaurant" in DeFu-
niak Springs.
The Argyle Post Office, lo-
cated in Walton County, has
a rich history. Since the post
office was established in
1883, it served the' public in
several different locations in
thergyle community. Whei'
the Postal Service first
started out in Argyle it was
located in a hotel, formerly
owned by Bessie Henderson
and her sister, Beaulah
Bishop. Henderson served as
postmaster from April 1,
1954 until June 30, 1970. The
home is now owned by Kevin
Griggs, of Argyle, nephew of
Rita Mehlhorn.
Thomas Sherman Merritt
was the first rural carrier in
Walton County in -1908.
Merritt ran the rural route,
which was approximately 30
miles in his horse and buggy
with only one change of horse
at the relay station in the trip
out to Euchee Valley and
back. Around 1919, the post
office was operated from a
grocery store owned by
Merritt. He continued the
route until approximately
1929 and at that time, the
rural route was taken over by
the DeFuniak Springs Post
Office.
The post office moved


again to the north side of the
railroad tracks, which is now
named "Railroad Avenue."
The building itself was
moved closer to Henderson's
residence, where it remained
in operation until 1969 when
Muriel Bishop Collins built a
new post office. Collins
served as officer in charge
from June 1970 until 1972.
On February 23, 1983, the
United States Postal Service
celebrated its 100-year anni-
versary of serving the com-
munity at the Argyle Post
Office.
In 1998, the post office
again moved to its new and
present location, four miles
east oFDeFuniak Springs on
Hwy. 90, across from
Mehlhorn's Mini-Mart.' The
present facility celebrated its
grand opening on May 30,
1998.
Postmasters who served
the Argyle community for the
last 122 years are as follows:
McKinnon A.D. Campbell,
February 23, 1883; Mary A.
McDonald, September 18,
1883; Margarite A.
McDonald; September 7,
1901; Mary A. Douglass, De-
cember 10, 1914; Sarah C.
Anderson, March 26, 1919;
Eliza A. Snell, February 23,
1922; Bessie Henderson,
April 1, 1954; Judith M.
Vickoren, June 27, 1972, and
Rita Y. Mehlhorn, December
26, 1981 until January 31,
2005.
Mehlhorn is now working
with her husband, Freddie;
daughter, Sabrina; son,
Franz, and mother-in-law,
Edith, at "Mehlhorn's Mini-
Mart" where they look for-
ward to working together to
further serve Argyle and the
surrounding communities.

Walton County Heritage Museum to feature Pansy exhibit


One hundred years ago,
Isabella Alden, better known
by her penname, Pansy, was
a household name.

active supporter and speaker
with the Chautauqua move-
ment and purchased a home
on Circle Drive in DeFuniak
Springs to be more involved
in the winter assembly of the
Chautauqua. In fact, in one
of her stories in The Pansy.


magazine, she describes a
day at the winter
Chautauqua held in DeFu-
niak Springs.
From February 24-March
25, area residents will get a
glimpse into the life and
works of Isabella Alden when
they visit the Pansy exhibit
at the Walton County Heri-
tage Museum in the old de-
pot building in historic DeFu-
niak Springs. On exhibit will
be many ofher books includ-
ing The Prince of Peace, a


complete illustrated volume
of the Life of Christ, Memo-
ries of Yesterdays, her auto-
biography, and many of her
books for children. Also in-
cluded will be a bound edition
of The Pansy magazines from
1887.
As part of this year's
Chautauqua Assembly.

senting a dramatic presenta-
tion about Pansy. It will be
held at the Walton County

mance can be purchased

Have you ever given a bou-
quet of thorns? Strange? St.
Paul said, "A torn in the flesh
was given to me."
God gave Paul a thorn. It
kept him humble, and made
him useable.
God gave us a bouquet of
thorns, an awful accident
that cut Audrey and totaled
our car.
We prayed, "Lord, you
spared our lives. Now we'll do


the work of four. What will
you have us do?"
God put this radio, televi-
sion, and print ministry on
our hearts, and it covers the
world with the gospel.
A thorn is a friend to the
bush. Why not thank God for
your thorn?

Thank You
My recent stay in the local
hospital, Healthmark Re-
gional Medical Center, for
tests and treatment was very
helpful.
I appreciated the good ser-
vices of Dr. Howell, nurses,
and employees. I also enjoyed
the good meals. Thanks.

DeFuniak Springs


By DR. ROBERT M. JAYE

In 1 John 3:1 we find these
words: "Behold, what man-
ner of love the Father hath
bestowed upon us." Consider
who we were, and what we
feel ourselves to be when cor-
ruption is powerful within
us. It will make you wonder
at our adoption by the father.
Yet we are called the chil-
dren of God. What a high re-
lation it should be to be a`
child, and what privileges it
should bring! What care and
tenderness a child expects
from a father, and what love
a father should feel toward
his child!
But all that, and more than
that we now have through
Christ. We have Christ as our
elder Brother, and we can
accept this honor: "Therefore
the world knoweth us not,
because it knew Him not."
We are content to be un-
known with Him in His hu-


miliation, for we are to be
exalted with Him.
Beloved, we are now the
children of God (see v.2). This
is easy to read, but it is not
easy to feel. How is it with
your heart this day? Are you
in the depths of sorrow? Does
corruption rise within your
spirit? Does grace seem like
a poor spark, trampled under
foot? Does your faith almost
fail you?
Fear not, for it is neither
your graces nor your feelings
on which you are to live. You
must live simply by faith in
Christ. With all these things
against us -- in the very
depths of our sorrow, wher-
ever we may be -- we have
this promise that now we are
the children of God. When He
shall appear, we shall be like
Him. The Holy Spirit shall.
purify our minds, and divine
power shall refine our bodies,
,then we shall see Him as He
is.

You have seen it a million
times at high school football

little league park. Fans seem

comes to a bad call by the

violent when it comes to a
coach or opposing team's

Fights break out, referees
are ran off the field like they

often and has been gaining
attention even more so in the
past few years in school age
children's sports.
But, if the legislature and
many state athletic depart-

coming months, the fans
could see fines and even ejec-

,This comes after several out-,

football season in some high,
school football stadiums and
the fight that was captured

Many of those fighting for

rallying around the officials
say that the violence, both
verbally and physically, has
to come to an end. In the past
five years, the problems have
exploded into violence and
six deaths have been re-
ported that were due to vio-
lence among fans.,
One act that many univer-
sities are implementing is no
alcohol sales at any games.
University officials, team
owners and stadium/sport-
ing facilities agree that even
though alcohol sales are a big
part of the game and a "cash
cow" for the venue, the
trouble is not worth the ex-
pense.
But, what about those ven-
ues- that don't allow alcohol?
What about those venues
that are city-run and involve
children under the age of 10
years old playing an innocent
game of baseball in the little
league organizations?
In 1992, a death occurred
when an outraged parent, a
mother, did not like the
coach's call to remove her six-
year-old child from the game
because of his performance.
After the game ended, the
mother went to her family
SVU, came back on to the
field and shot the coach in
the chest twice with .38 cali-
ber pistol.
Another incident occurred
in the early 90s when a fa-
ther disagreed with a call
from the referee on the ice
hockey field. After the game,
was over, he hugged his son,
gave him some money for a
hotdog, and proceeded to

bachelor's


nursing


sessions


The Bachelor of Science in
Nursing program, a joint pro-
gram of Okaloosa-Walton
College and the University of
West Florida, will hold infor-
mation sessions at 7 p.m. on
Feb. 17 at the OWC/UWF
Fort Walton Beach Campus
auditorium, building 8. The
admissions and selection pro-
cess will be discussed. The
priority deadline to apply for
admission to the program is
March 1.
The BSN program is de-
signed as a career ladder for
34 those who currently hold
a registered nursing license
and desire to advance in their
career and education. Appli-
68 cants who have an associate
4L degree in nursing but who do
not yet have an RN license
may be accepted on a provi-
sional basis. All coursework

ducted in local hospitals and

beat the referee until he was
pronounced dead.
,All this because of a bad
call or the choice to take out a
player due to bad perform-
ance!
I have witnessed first hand
in this business just how
parents "get into the game."
I was attending a little
league baseball game in
Mary Esther four years ago
when the most shocking and
most uncalled for riot broke
out. The parents didn't agree
with the coach's decision and
at the same time felt that the
umpire had made an unjust
ruling.
Not only did the parents
curse the coach of their home
team .and the umpire, they
even began cursing at the
eight and nine-year-old pay-
ers on the opposing team. All
the profanity was accompa-
nied by hot dogs and full cans
of coke being thrown at the
field fencing and the dugouts
of both teams.
The game was called, the
players were in tears and the
cops escorted several par-
ents out of the park and into
a squad car. Now that is ri-
diculous!.
If you are wondering, that
team was from Walton
County. I am ashamed to
even add that line.
Since then, sports organi-
zations have petitioned are-
nas, sports venues and offi-
cials to call the police or
sheriffs department when
any type of problem occurs
from the fans in the stands.
Not only are they going to be
arrested and charged with of


From 11B


assault and battery, if they
hit someone or throw an ob-
ject, they may be jailed, face
expensive bonds and fines
and be banned from attend-
ing anymore sporting events
in that county or even coun-
try.
With this latest congres-
sional push to change the
laws, they say they are just
beginning with legislation
that will punish these of-
fenders. Those counties and
states that are already en-
forcing this latest ruling are
also putting no trespassing
restraints on those arrested
and convicted.
With children's sporting
events being such a main
source of entertainment not
only in Walton County, but
throughout the country,
there are codes of conduct.
that the players, the schools,
the organizations and even
the fans have to follow. They
are there for our protection
and are enforced for our
safety.
So remember, the next
time you are sitting at your
son's pee-wee football game,
or getting angry at the
coach's call on your
daughter's little league
team, take the time to just
chill. For if you show out and
o become verbally of physi-
cally violent, you might just
watch your child's next game
on the VCR player in the
recreation room at the
county jail.
It's only a sport and your
children are there to have
fun and make you proud. Let
them!


OWC NURSING INSTRUCTOR Beth Arrington works
with BSN students in one of the new Nursing instructional
labs on the Niceville campus..


According to Beth
Arrington, lead instructor for
the program, the BSN pro-
gram is offered in a flexible,
non-traditional format to ac-
commodate working nurses.
"The entire tuition for th6
32-credit program is cur-
rently just over $2,400," she
said, noting that many area
health care facilities offer
tuition reimbursement to
their employees who pursue
higher education.
Through the joint program,
both OWC and UWF teach
program courses and the de-
gree is awarded by UWF.

Over twenty citizens' groups


discuss growth management


I'"


By TIANA LARSEN
1000 Friends of Florida, a
non-profit organization advo-
cating responsible planning
for the state's population
growth, is involved in an ini-
tiative to help communities
in the Florida Panhandle
identify planning techniques
to preserve critical natural
resources in an economically-
viable manner.
When Dan Pennington of
1000 Friends began receiving
emails from various groups
around the area, he noticed
that similar concerns were
being voiced. "We have prob-
lems," Pennington reported
he was hearing from many
diverse organizations. So
1000 Friends decided to call
a meeting and see what com-
monalities could be identi-
fied.
On Feb. 5, over 20 citizens'
groups met at the Coastal
Branch Library in south Wal-
ton. Some of the organiza-
tions represented included
Apalachicola Bay and River
Keeper, St. Andrews Bay
Environmental Study Team,
Friends of Santa Rosa
County, Friends of Wakulla
Springs, South Walton Com-
munity Council, Beach to


Kristin Davis chosen
for role in ABC pilot

Bay Connection, Concerned
Citizens of Wakulla County,
the Jelks Family Founda-
tion, Alligator Pt.
Homeowners Association,
Nokuse Plantation, Perdido
Key Association, South Gulf
County Taxpayers Associa-
tion, Florida Conservation
Alliance and Florida Wildlife
Federation.
Several organizations sent
multiple members. Nearly
fifty people, during a four-
hour discussion, voiced many
common concerns and iden-
tified their top issues:
Quality of elected officials,
many of whom they believe
are supported by special in-
terests and do not faithfully
represent current constituen-
cies regarding natural re-
source protection and com-
munity planning.
Uncontrolled development
by means of lack of enforce-
ment of current county com-
prehensive plans and land
development codes and a
weakening of these codes.
Increasing development
within the coastal high haz-
ard zone and floodplains,
counter to citizen intent, re-
source protection, public
safety and economic welfare.

he characters instead of high jinks
Rachel Weisz wanted moviegoers
to identify with her role in 'Constantine'


Inadequate protection of
natural and cultural re-
sources and the current
economies of forestry, mili-
tary and agriculture.
Within these broad issues,
many specific concerns were
noted. Several attendees
from different areas com-
mented that they felt "stone-
walled" at the local level.
Others noted that they felt
local elected officials had no
respect for existing neighbor-
hoods, historical communi-
ties and wildlife habitats.
Most all wanted to see a
greater citizens' role in local
planning and decision-mak-
ing, without having to resort
to costly legal action.
Two phrases commonly
used by local elected officials,
"highest and best use" and
"property rights," were tar-
geted by several people, who
called for a clarification of
both terms. "There is a false
deferral to property rights of
the parcel being developed
that ignores the rights of the
adjoining properties," was a
typical comment.
The group also agreed that
the, concept of "highest and
best use" should be ad-
dressed. There seemed to be
common agreement that de-
velopment does not always
pay for itself, and some com-
munities felt they are being
shortchanged when it comes
to public services for taxes
paid.


Escalating land values and
a shortage of developable
land were identified as two
of the driving forces behind,
the change in the Panhandle
from a sleepy, rural area to a
"white hot real estate mar-
ket."
Due to these escalating
land values, "We have seen a
lot of lost habitat connec-
tions, opportunities that got
away from the state," re-
marked Manley Fuller, presi-
dent of the Florida Wildlife
Federation.
An attendee from Perdido
Key agreed, noting that a
large scale amendment in-
creasing density on the bar-
rier island is in the works,
and "developers are fighting
over the properties that will
have to come down due to
Hurricane Ivan."
The increased density is
going in without funding or
planning for infrastructure,
she said, which was also a
complaint from a Walton
County group.
Water and all the many is-
sues 'associated with it were
important to attendees also.
Their concerns included loss
of natural functions of wet-
lands and floodplains, pollu-
tion from septic tanks, water
quality, transport of water
out of the local area, and
stormwater runoff.

The two local nonprofit
groups who oppose the
renourishment plans had re-
quested a continuance of the
hearings, but their request
was not granted.
The first session of the
hearings is set to begin at 1
p.m. on Monday in the South
Walton Tourist Development
Council (TDC) conference
room. The second session is
to begin at 9 a.m. on the fol-
lowing morning, and the lo-
cation for that day will also
be the TDC conference room.
After Tuesday, the hear-
ings will move to the South
Walton Courthouse Annex.
The annex has been reserved
for an additional three days
of hearings, Feb. 23-25, with
each of those sessions begin-
ning at 9 a.m., although it is
anticipated that the hearings
may conclude by Feb. 24 or
earlier.
The hearings were
prompted by a challenge to

Brad Pickel, beach man-
agement coordinator for Wal-
ton County, said the county
is eager to address the issues
that will be raised and secure
a permit for the
renourishment project.
Final approval of the
project would be the culmi-
nation of a five-year effort in
Walton County and Destin
that was prompted by beach
damage suffered in 1995s
Hurricane Opal.
Expected to testify in next
week's hearings will be rep-
resentatives of the nonprofit
groups, of the county, of the
city of Destin, and of the state
.Department of Environmen-
tal Protection. An adminis-
trative law judge will pre-
side.
Challenges to the state per-
mit are currently expected to
relate to the two issues of
water quality certification
and construction easements,
with regard to the proposed
renourishment project.
The hearings will be open
to public attendance.

Walton Planning


Commission


against extending


height limitation


By TIANA LARSEN
The planning commission
unanimously recommended
denial of a proposed ordi-
nance that would extend the
50-foot height limitation cur-
rently in effect south of
Choctawhatchee Bay to the
rest of Walton County.
The action seemingly puts
the planning commission at
odds with the Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC,) who have the final
say on approval or disap-
proval of the ordinance.
When asked why the ordi-
nance was being brought for-
ward, Tom Blackshear,
county planner, told the com-
mission planning staff had
been directed by the BCC to
draft the ordinance, which
has popular support.
Commissioner T'm Terrell
was concerned the result
would be a "cookie cutter"
look. Commissioner Clayton
Adkinson, who made the
motion to deny approval,
wanted more study of the
proposal. Commissioner
Albert Paris remarked that
there was very little land
north of the Bay suitable for
a high-rise, and that Eglin
controlled most of it. Paris
also wanted more public in-
put.
Brian Brown, represent-
ing EglinAFB, was noncom-
mittal on the subject. "It is
currently under review by
the encroachment commit-
tee. Any change would have
some kind of impact," he
said.
Randy Gardner, a new ap-
pointee to the commission,
appointed by District 1 Com-
missioner Scott Brannon,
thought the ordinance
"would limit the highest and
best use of property."
Gardner wanted more infor-
mation on why the ordinance
was being proposed.
They were joined by Butch
Lawrence, also a new com-
missioner, recently ap-
pointed by the BCC to fill an


at-large seat, and Commis-
sioners Tom Patton and
Sally Merrifield in the
unanimous vote against the
ordinance. The motion also
contains a suggestion that
the BCC consider a joint
workshop with the planning
commission, to be held at a
location north of the Bay.
In other business at the
Feb. 10 meeting, the follow-
ing projects were all recom-
mended: for approval. The
BCC will make a final deci-
sion at their March 1 land use
meeting:
Coastal Village Subdivi-
sion, a 38-lot single-family
subdivision on 5.03-acres on
the east side of Thompson
Road; Serenity PUD, an 87-
lot single-family subdivision
on 12.12 acres on the north
end of Woodward Drive, off
CR-30Ain Dune Allen; Water-
side Phase 2, a 14-lot subdi-
vision on the southeast corner
of U.S. 98 and South Walton
Lakeshore Drive in Inlet
Beach; Antigua Bay PUD, a
59-lot subdivision on 19.45
acres on CR-393, three miles
north of U.S.98; Sugar Sands
Estates, a 40-lot subdivision
on 20 acres on the east side
of Sugar Drive; and 393 North
Business Park, 46,692-
square-feet of office/ware-
housing on the east side of
CR-393 north of US98.
Mack Bayou Homes, an 87-
lot subdivision on 16.65 acres
off Mack Bayou Road, was
recommended for approval
over the objections of several
neighbors, who were con-
cerned about density, compat-
ibility, traffic, loss of trees,
and the effects on the bayou.
"To me it will be 87 bullets
that will kill the bayou," re-
marked one unhappy neigh-
bor.

of beach


recovery lacking?


By DOTTY NIST
Locals can see for them-
selves how well Walton
beaches have recovered in
the wake of Hurricane Ivan,
but apparently many poten-
Stial tourists have not gotten
the word.
On Feb. 9, the South Wal-
ton Tourist Development
Council (TDC) discussed the
fact that, despite many post-
storm advertising messages
that the beaches of south
Walton are "open for busi-
ness," many visitors who call
to inquire about lodging are
still asking about storm im-
pacts.
Beach accesses closed due
to storm destruction were a
concern for tourism after
Ivan. However, rebuilding
progress has been good, and
all 47 of the 48 accesses
maintained by the TDC are.
scheduled to be completed by
April 1.
TDC member Jeanne
Dailey of Newman-Dailey
Properties said that 20-30
percent of people calling
about renting her company's
lodging units ask about the
effects of the mid-September
2004 hurricane.
Dailey pointed out that ev-
ery part of the state of
Florida was impacted by hur-
ricanes during the past tropi-
cal season, and that news of
those storm impacts was
prominent on the national
news.
TDC Executive Director
Kriss Titus noted that the
state has approved $11 mil-
lion to be spent on advertis-
ing to let vacationers know
they can come to Florida.
Those ads are to begin in the
spring, she noted.
Walton County is having a
good Snowbird season, ac-


cording to TDC figures. How-
ever, several council mem-
bers were concerned that
tourism occupancies would
be low in local accommoda-
tions during the months of
April, May and early June,
mostly due to a lack of aware-
ness of the area's recovery
from the hurricane.
Titus suggested that what
might be needed was another
full-fledged "we're open for
business" advertising cam-
paign to prepare for the
spring season.
The council members voted
unanimously to ask permis-
sion to use bed tax contin-
gency funds for the cam-
paign. The request is to be
brought before the Walton
County Board of County
Commissironelm (BCC-) f
cons ar-tins -. m17o')
In othervactiovn the toUsitsm
council members voted to di-
rect staff to design, permit
and bid dune restoration
projects iin several beach ar-
eas where dunes were dimin-
ished by Hurricane Ivan's
impacts. These projects will
involve trucking in beach
quality sand at a cost of $30
per cubic yard.
The council still anticipates
clearing legal hurdles to do a
large-scale renourishment
project on the worst-im-
pacted area, western Walton
County. However, dunes in
parts of two other beach ar-
eas where no large-scale
projects is planned, eastern
Walton County and the Dune
Allen -area, are also in need
of sand supplementation.
The TDC recommendation
is expected to be considered
by the BCC at its Feb. 22
meeting.

Seminar on
Holocaust
offered at OWC
A new four-part seminar on
"The Holocaust: Truth & Re-
flections" will be held on
Feb.5, 22, March 1 and 8
from 1 to 3 p.m. at the
Okaloosa-Walton College
Niceville campus. The semi-
nar will address anti-
Semitism and the roles of
bystanders, perpetrators, vic-
tims, resisters and rescuers,
and will also look at the
American and world re-
sponses to the Holocaust.
i The seminar is offered
through the college's PRIME
Time continuing education
program and is a non-credit
course open to the public. In-
dividuals may register at any
OWC campus until the first
session, space permitting.
Enroll for course #XPT-7046.
There is a $25 fee. Contact
Pam Smith, instructor, for
details at 729-4987 or contact
Continuing Education at
729-6084 for registration in-
formation.
A related event, a free pub-
lic forum featuring the per-
sonal testimonies of two Ho-
locaust survivors will be held
March 14 at 7 p.m. at the
OWC Niceville campus., The
U.S. Holocaust Memorial
Museum is sponsoring a visit
to the region by the individu-
als who will speak at the
event. More' information on
this event will be forthcom-
ing at a later date.



GROWTH
From Front

the groups agreed to stay in
touch, to hold more joint
meetings on a regular basis,
to share information and re-
sources and to work together
on mutual goals. The first of
these will be drafting a joint
resolution to be sent tot local'
commissioners and.ilegisla-....
media '
Included in the resolution
will be a call for the imple-
mentation of an environmen-
tal resource permitting
(ERP) program in northwest
Florida. This program exists
in the rest of Florida and
regulates activities involving
the alteration of surface wa-
ter flows from upland con-
struction and filling of wet-
lands.
The lack of an ERP is the
result of an exemption for
Northwest Florida that'Was
written into the law years
ago. There is a chance that a
bill removing the exemption
could be passed this year,
said Charles Pattison, execu-
tive director of 1000 Friends.
However, Pattison noted
that State Representative
Allan Bense of Panama City,
currently Speaker of the
House, opposes the bill.
Other positions taken by the
citizens' groups are also at
odds with current govern-
ment trends. .,
Walton County. lik-
Perdido Key, has recently -
filed a, large scale amend-
ment removing density limi-
tations on property in. the
100-year floodplain and the
Coastal High Hazard Zone, a
move supported by State
Sen. Charlie Clary.
And at a recent Walton
County planning commission
meeting, a recommendation
was made against extending
the 50-foot height limitation
to north Walton County. "It
would limit the highest and
best use of property," com-
mented one member of the
commission.

Seaside Reperatory



inducts new officers


FIRST VICE PRESIDENT AND ACTING PRESIDENT,
Lew Stanley, of the Sandestin Lions Club presents a certifi-
cate of appreciation to Sheryl Johnon. She was also presented
a Sandestin Lions Club Pin as a small token of appreciation
for a most interesting program presented to the club.


Sheryl Johnson


brings program


to Lions Club


Sheryl Johnson, develop-
ment manager for the Sacred
Heart Hospital on The Em-
erald Coast in South Walton
County, was the speaker at a
recent meeting of the
Sandestin Lions Club.
A native of Ohio, Johnson
moved to this area in 1991.
She was the executive ad-
ministrative assistant to the
president to the Sandestin
Resort for.four and one-half
years and was elevated to the
property owner relations
manager for Sandestin and
held that position for five
years.

Johnson was hired as the
development manager for'the
hospital, and it was on this
subject that she enlightened


the members of the Lions
Club. She pointed out that
during the first two years in
operation, the hospital in-
creased the number of em-
ployees from 188 to 305. The
emergency room has doubled
in size and will handle an es-
timated 20,000 patients this
year. More than 500 flights
have been flown to pick up
patients around the area and
transported them to the de-
sired trauma center.
Johnson said although the
hospital was designed to ac-
commodate 150 rooms, from
50 with which it opened, it is
obvious that 'in a few short
years, it will have to grow to
the designed capacity to be
-'ble to handle the demand
for it's services.

Sexual awaenessevent planned
.Sexud Ossaulawarenesse t pann


Each year, the Emerald
Coast becomes a magnet for
young people seeking a well-
earned break from serious
collegiate studies. For most,
the time spent is one of light-
hearted fun, generating
happy memories of a beauti-
ful beach. For a few, however,
the memories are stark.
Sexual predators also target
spring break resorts. High
risk behaviors,including
binge drinking and young
people seeking a "good time,"
can result in a high incidence
of sexual assault.
This year, the Okaloosa/
Walton Sexual Assault Inter-
agency Council (OWSAIC)
and Bridgeway Center, Inc.
(BCI), are working together
to help young people make the
most of their vacation, and at
the same time protecting
themselves and their friends.
Starting in March, volun-
teers will be distributing door
knockers in the major hotels


and condos; putting up post-
ers at the major night clubs
and .youth hang-outs; run-
ning PSA's on radio and TV;
and distributing promotional
items with safety messages.
A website has been developed
at http://www.owsaic.com,
that will be publicized, to pro-
vide further information
about safety tips and victim
resources.
The culminating' event will
be held on the Boardwalk on
Okaloosa Island, April 7,

____SNOWfMRD ANEWS


Some Snowbirds ,are facing
the downside of their 'stay,
racing to line up their living
options for next ypar. It's part
of the winter gaiild plan.
We've welcomed those new
friends who were uprooted
from the Gulf Shore area,
and hope they're a perma-
nent winter resident here,
discovering all the opportu-
nities in this part of the Pan-
handle.
I think you rent for a month
the first year; a couple of
months the second year; and
about the third year you are
seriously considering a pur-
chase. Well, enjoy the game
plan. It keeps the economy
moving forward, but don't
forget to leave a lasting im-
pression, like becoming a vol-
unteer in either the Snow-
bird organization, or in the
community. Great opportu-
nities exist in both places.

Help make a dream come
true by building a play-
ground. Building dates are
round the clock for five days,

chase at $100 apiece, memo-
rial bricks which can be en-
graved and placed in the Me-
morial Garden at the hospi-
tal.

Music around the South


It's movie award
season and that
means anybody who
has appeared on
screen this past
year, has a chance to
win. But what do the
award ceremonies
and trophies really
mean to an actor?

It all started a few weeks
ago with the Golden Globe
awards in the middle of
January and continues until
Feb. 21 when the ultimate
prize, the Oscar is handed
out. The month of January
and February are filled with
press conferences, luncheons
for the nominees, fittings for
women's dresses, and
nerves.
,I is the timeof the,year
when actors .and actresses
sh iQn te red carpet and
pro ucers and agents fight
for their attention along with
every member of the press
and even annoying pap-
parazzi. Movie and produc-
tion studios are also trying to
cash in as being the big win-
ner of this year's list of award
shows.
Hillary Swank, star of the
new Clint Eastwood movie,
"Million Dollar Baby,"
racked up at both the Golden
Globe and Screen Actor's
Guild Awards for best ac-
tress in a motion: picture.
Jamie Foxx shed his comedic
persona for the true-to-life
story of Ray Charles in the
movie "Ray," where he won
for best actor in a .motion
picture.
Another big winner for
both award presentations so
far this year, was "Side-
ways." It's cast consists of
veteran actors Paul Gia-
matti, Virginia Madsen,
Sandra. Oh, and Thomas
Hayden Church.
The 11th Annual;: SAG
Awards are awards presen-
tated by the Motion Picture
Industry of America to ac-
tors, producers, directors
and other members of the in-
dustry who have their screen
actor guild membership
cards. These awards are
always presented between
the Golden Globe Awards,
presented by the foreign
press and the Academy
Awards which wrap up the
"giving" season.-
But with all the trophies,
spotlight, parties, press con-
ferences and news coverage,
what does it mean to the
winners?
The careers, of many of the
performers hang in the bal-
ance and are determined by
their nominations and their
Winning. Jamie Foxx, a first-
time winner of any major
award presented by the big
three, won for a character he
had to portray as a blind ac-
tor. Second time Golden
Globe winner, Hillary
Swank, had to shed her ele-
Sgant duds from movies in the
Past, put on 20 pounds and


portray a beat-up boxer for
Clint Eastwood.
Another actress who
fought her way back to the
top was "Desperate House-
wives," Teri Hatcher. Just a
few years ago she had come
to the conclusion that Holly-
wood no longer wanted her
and she had decided to open
her own little dress shop in
the L.A. area.
To her surprise, she landed
the role of her career and put
her and ABC on the map. She
walked away from the SAG
Awards with the trophy for
best actress in a comedy se-
ries.
She told reporters that
with the win, she might just
have a career on screen.
But, one actor who, no mat-
ter what role he takes in how-
ever much the high-budget
movie is, he has not won an
award yet. Leonardo DiCa-
prio starred in the block-
buster, multi-million dollar
movie "Titanic" in 1997 ,andd
though the movn.'ie wo'n 11
"Academy Awards,Jhe did not,
"" get the best actor 'trophy.
Same goes for this year's
highly-anticipated movie
"The Aviator," a picture
based on the eccentric How-
ard Hughes. The movie won
countless awards and nomi-
nated for even more at the
Oscars, but DiCaprio still
walked out of award show
number two without a tro-
phy.
Don't think that studio
executives weren't question-
ing why their nominee didn't
win. It will also make them
think next time it is time to
cast for their next big budget
movie.
The awards are not only
seen as a reward for hard,
diverse and controversial
work given by the performer,
the awards serve as a calling
card to other agents, studios
and producers. A statue in
the hand, means big dollars
at the studio or in advertis-
ing budgets.

One network that adver-
tisers are racing to advertise
with is ABC and the two new,
award-winning shows "Des-
perate Housewives" and
"Extreme Makeover: Home
Edition." Both have won
various awards and or nomi-
nations for several upcoming
awards such as. the televi-
sion awards, the Emmys.
With every trophy won and
every thank you speech
given, producers, studio ex-
ecs and advertisers are more
willing to put up the money.
It is a tough business in
which only the very elite ex-
cel in and even less become
an icon.
With the Oscars scheduled
for this Sunday, the cream of
the crop will rise to the top
and receive their various
awards for numerous tal-
ents. For those who say it
was just an honor to be nomi-
nated, what they are really
saying is that they hope they
get cast in another role that
could compare to that from
which they were nominated
this time around and then
possibly win next year.

ter her star-making turn in
"Alien," Weaver demonstrated
her versatility in a wide
range of genres. She proved
her dramatic skills in "Goril-
las in the Mist: The Story of
Dian Fossey" and "The Ice
Storm," and her comedic gifts
in "Working Girl" and the
"Ghostbusters" movies.
Bouncing between studio
productions and independent
fare, her recent credits in-
clude "Tadpole," "The Guys,"
"Holes" and "The Village." She
recently wrapped "Snow
Cake," a British independent
drama co-starring Alan
Rickman.
"I enjoy the roles I'm get-
ting now more than I ever
enjoyed the more normal
roles I played," she says. "To

But it is the "Alieri"series I
with which Weaver is. most

played Ripley in 1997's "Alien:

to a fifth, and final install-


ment. "Ridley and I have'
talked about doing one more
where we go back to the origi-
,nal planet and see what these
creatures came out of," she
says.
She says the secret of the
"Alien" movies' success is not
the fact that Ripley is a fe-
male action hero but simply
an action hero with human-
ity. "It just seems to me a good


character is a good character,
and integrity is integrity, and
courage is courage and it has
nothing to do with sex," she
says. "I'm frustrated by the
fact that today's female action
heroes are still in these ludi-

we'd have a woman president

Crowd Pleaser
The cliches and formulated
tricks are so understated
that 'The Wedding Date'
comes off as a fun film
By Sheri Linden
vnu entertainment report
From its opening shot of
the Manhattan skyline to its
S^ soft-pop soundtrack, "The
SWedding Date" signals movie
Jalromance of the effervescent
kind. Familiar but never
overly broad, this well-cast,
crowd-pleasing comedy ben-
efits from a low-key empha-
sis on character over high
rs jinks. Despite the stock feel
Providers of many of its characters and
a sometimes laughably obvi-
- ous script, the film has an
S- energetic grace, directed with
- "fluid efficiency by Clare
S- Kilner. "Wedding," which
S should click especially with
S* females, looks destined for
solid box-office sales.
Debra Messing stars as
Kat, a New York-based airline
a- employee on her way to Lon-
S- don for her half-sister's wed-
ding. In order to convince her
-. family and her ex-fiance -
best man at the upscale
shindig that She's deliri-
"- ously happy and not still gaz-
ing wistfully at the ring he
gave her more than two years
ago, she hires a male escort
as her dream date. Himbo
Nick(Dermot Mulroney), who
has all the self-confidence
Kat lacks, makes it clear that,
for an additional sum, the
business transaction can in-
S clude services of a more inti-
mate nature. She's shocked,

sion of the Wall of Jericho in
"It Happened One Night": a
.barrier of pillows between
them in the bed they share.
Like all such walls, it's built
for toppling; by the time she's
indulged in a night of
drunken bachelorette-bash
revelry, Kat has all but forgot-
ten about ex Jeffrey (Jeremy
Sheffield).
Kat tells anyone who asks
that Nick is a therapist the
joke being that he is, in a way,
breathing you-go-girl
affirmations in her ear with
knee-weakening expertise. As
an unsure gal who would
withdraw $6,000 from her
401(k) in order to play-act
romantic bliss, Messing is
convincing and likable. But
Kat isn't the only one play-
acting here.
Over the course of a week's
worth of luxe nuptial dinners,
picnics and parties, the wed-
ding couple (well played by
Amy Adams and Jack Daven-
port) are headed on a sure
path from picture-book ro-
mance to major revelation. In
the romantic comedy scheme
of things, the repercussions of
that twist are momentary at
best.


mother (Holland Taylor) and Messing brings a sweet,
English stepdad (Peter Egan) self-deprecating humor and
open-mindedly put the visit- impressive gift for physical
* ing couple in one room, it comedy to her first big-screen
prompts a 21st century ver- lead. Limited here by the


smoldering restraint he's
called upon to deliver, the tal-
ented Mulroney more than
fits thesbill as the sexiest man
money can buy. If this hunk-
for-hire with a comp lit degree
from; Brown doesn't seem
quite convinced spouting sim-
plistic; pearls of ostensible
wisdom ("Every woman has
exactly the love life she
wants"), there's no question
that he has a way with a
raised eyebrow.
Dana Fox's script, based on
the novel "Asking for Trouble"
by Elizabeth Young, offers no
shortage of cliches, the most
unfortunate being the hack-
neyed role of the single, sex-
obsesqed woman who pro-
videspcqmic relief (which Sa-
rah Parish nonetheless puts
over with verve).
"Wedding" just barely
dusts the spiderwebs off for-
mula tricks, but Kilner ("How
to Deal") keeps the party
moving. All of it plays out
with mild Brit conviviality-
the booze' bill alone for this
week of nuptial excess could
keep a developing country
afloat. Director of Photogra-
phy Oliver Curtis and pro-
duction designer Tom Burton
showcase the posh London
and Surrey County locations,
and costumer Louise Page
outfits the cast with a frothy
sense of elegance.

ADVICE


from 1-C


down jacket over a shirt
and layering a quilted coat
over a sweater, a shirt and a
T-shirt. Though the goose
down jacket might be the
warmest single piece, it offers
few options indoors. The other
look provides four layers of
defense against cold and of-
fers a wider range of options
for comfort.
Laura McDowellt, a
spokeswoman for TJ Maxx,
says that women may find
layering for warmth 'easier
than men because they're
more likely to layer as a fash-
ion statement.
Still, men can still layer in
style. Most men have sweat-


ers, and- vests are back in
style.
A few layering tips to re-
member:

You really aren't layer-
ing unless you incorporate at
least three garments.

As much as possible,
wear fabrics that breathe and
.absorb moisture especially
for the garment closest to the
body.

A Make sure no garments
are tight, including pieces
that fit closer such as under-
shirts and turtlenecks.

Retain body heat by
wearing a hat and scarf. -
