"U.S. 331 is the key"



On the road again


By TAMMYKEARCE
Although road construction
as become a way of life here
n Walton County, there is
ven more on the agenda. Be-
"nning this year, Highway
31 will undergo the first in
a series of upgrades.
-.The Florida Department of
-ansportation will soon be-
-in accepting bids for the con-
struction of a 331 bypass
traveling north of Highway
20 to Owls' Head Road and
joining Highway 331 south
of DeFuniak Springs. Early
estimates place construction,
costs for the new two-lane
(contrary to rumors of four-
iAane) bypass at more than 16
million dollars, and the work
is slated to take approxi-
mately two years. "At this
point those are rough esti-
mates," said DOT Public In-
formation Officer Tommie
Speights, "but we will start'
letting bids for the construc-
tion this year."
While this bypass will cer-
tainly alleviate confusion for
those unfamiliar with the
road's currently broken
route, questions arise about
the project's environmental,
and economic impacts.
In Freeport, reactions are
mixed. While the new bypass
will circumvent the down-
t:.. _,-dis t ict, bu.i.i'1.sss on
and around 331 south of


Highway 20 may see more
volume as tourism traffic in-
creases. And the new bypass
will create more commercial
property for city growth and,
development.
"I was worried at first that
our downtown district would
dry up without the .beach
traffic," said Freeport Mayor
Mickey Marse, "but I realized
that we have enough east/
west traffic on Highway 20,
in part because of'the Mid-
Bay Bridge, to keep that part
of town going." However, the


city of Freeport will not es-
cape without expense; utility
lines around the intersection
of Highway 20 and 331 will
cost approximately $250,000
to relocate. "We have some
large water lines under there
and they will be a job to
move," said Marse.
Environmentalists are con-
cerned about the new bypass'
route through the wooded
area northeast of Freeport.
"Those woods... seem to be
smack in the middle of the
Greenway between the Eglin


Reservation and .the
Apalachicola National Forest
to the east," observed
Sandestin resident Timothy
Mahar. "Not only that, but
they are in the flyway of the
monarch butterfly, not' to
mention a couple of migra-
tory bird flyways." While
many share that same con-
cern, most are optimistic that
a middle ground can be
found.
"Done properly, I think re-

THIS BUSY INTERSECTIONIN FREEPORT will look different after a two4lane road
bypass is constructed by FDOT to straighten the path of U.S. 331,.avoiding the current
second intersection to the east, which fronts the Freeport Community Center and a host 'of
commercial stores and businesses.


By BRUCE COLLIER

There's a building on
Baldwin Avenue in DeFuniak
Springs that many are glad
to see, but most hope they
never need to visit., Tlhe
build ing houses the offices of
the Public Defender.
. TheDeFuniak Springs
Public Defender's office is the
only one in Walton County.
Walton County is part of the
irst Judicial Circuit of
lorida, which also coin-
rises Okaloosa, Santa Rosa,
nd Escambia counties. The
public Defender for this cir-
cuit is Jack Behr. Like the
State At torney, .the Public
defender is elected every
four years. ,
: The office is staffed byfpour
administrative/clerical per-,
ons, one investigator, and,
"our attorneys. All are des-
gnated as assistant public
efenders, with Lenny
latteborze as chief assistant
..D.n
The other staff P.D.'s are
iheila Diane Engum, Debbie
udley, and Mike Odem.
A graduate of Florida
tate University Law
school. Platteborze has been
public defender for about 14
*ears. While in school, he
lerked for the public de-
"ender in Pensacola, then
worked for a "quasi-private"
aw firm that specialized in
leath penalty litigation in
.tate and federal courts.
Platteborze first came to
he DeFuniak office in 1997,
hen it was'located in an old
building on U.S. 90. The
building was less than ideal.
It had original wiring, which
.'as great for the computers."
ven so, it was an improve-
ient. "The public defender's
office used to be in a trailer,"
e says, "but that was before
._y time." Platteborze and
he others have been on
,aldwin Avenue for five
ears.


Two requirements have to
be met to merit a public de-
fender. First, one must be
accused ofa criminal offense.,
Second, one must demon-
strate financial need.
The office of public de-
fender emerged from the
need for representation in
court for persons accused of
crimes, but unable to afford
a paid attorney.
In Walton County, the as-
sessment is made using the
federal poverty guidelines
(FPG).
For example, the FPG for
one person is $9310 per year.
In the First Judicial Circuit,
the qualifying amount is 200
percent of that, or $18,620
per year. Thus, a single per-
son making less than that
amount per year is "pre-
sumptively" eligible for an
appointed attorney.
Other factors are also con-
sidered, including' the'
applicant's ability to post a
bond. Sometimes a defendant
has to choose between mak-
ing bond and getting an at-
torAey.
Many people apparently
make the grade. Platteborze
says that approximately 90
percent of this circuit's crimi-
nal cases are represented by
the Public Defender.
The clients "come in
waves," he says, adding that
each of the four staff attor-
neys has a average of 100
active files at a given time,
and that most cases are mis-
demeanors.
This reflects the
countywide statistics. In
2004, there were 1200-1300
felonies in Walton County,
and 1700 misdemeanors, ex-
cluding traffic offenses.
Though "no two days are
alike," Platteborze catego-
rizes three kinds of work day.
General office days involve
client and witness inter-
views, phone calls, research
and writing.


Jail visit days entail call-
ing the jail with a list of in-
mates, then meeting them
one by one in the jail's single
interview room. The pro-
posed new jail' will have sev-
eral such rooms.
The third kind of day is for
discovery depositions.
Florida has very liberal dis-
covery rules in criminal
cases, says Platteborze. De-


fense. lawyers can set up pre-
trial depositions with any
material state witnesses, and,
the state can do the same,
with the exception of the de-
fendant, who has a constitu-
tional right not to testify un-
less willing.
Platteborze says that
these depositions often expe-
dite plea agreements, be-
cause they give both sides an
advance idea of the strengths
and weaknesses of their
cases.
Funding for the Public
Defender's office comes en-
tirely from the state, with the


county paying monthly op-
erating bills for individual
offices.
In this circuit, public de-
fenders are not permitted to
engage in an outside legal
practice, but this rule varies
from circuit to circuit.
The majority of all crimi-
nal cases are settled by plea
bargains. This often misun-
derstood practice consists of


the defendant pleading
"guilty" or "no contest" to an
agreed-upon charge or
charges, often lesser than
those originally charged.
Each side agrees to a specific
sentence. Before a plea
agreement is submitted to a
judge, both the victims (if ap-
plicable) and law enforce-
ment officials are notified of
its terms.
Every criminal offense in
Florida carries a range of
fines and/or jail time. A sys-
tem of guidelines has been

Motorcross track told


to cease and desist


By DOTTY NIST
Some Woodlawn residents
will get a break from noise for
at least a while,.possibly for
the long term, with a
motorcross track operating in
their neighborhood having
been told to.cease and.desist,
track activity.
The Walton County Code
Enforcement Board found
the track in violation of
county code on Feb. 17. Own-
ers Jeffrey Lutker and Colin
Emmons will have the option
of seeking a large-scale
amendment for their 10-acre
property to negate the al-
leged violation posed by their
operation in an estate resi-
dential land use area. Code
enforcement board decisions
may also be appealed in cir-I
'cuit court. *
Walton County Code En-
forcement Officer Buddy
Wright said the matter began
when neighbors complained
about noise'from the track on
Jan. 3, prompting him to visit
the property that same day.'
Wright said he found
roughly five acres of the 10-
acre property set up as a
motorcross track, complete
with irrigation system and
berms for jumps.
A Jan. 22 site inspection
revealed the track "in full
operation," Wright testified.
, The property belongs to
D.D.J. Motorcross Track,
L.L.C., Wright commented, a
registered Florida corpora-
tion which is listed as inac-
tive.
Walton County Senior
Planner Carl Hammons tes-
tified that motorcross tracks
are classified as a general
commercial use. This type of
activity is not allowed either
as a primary or conditional
use in estate residential, the
land use classification in
which the property is located,
Hammons explained.
Since the property is over
10 acres in size,,the owners
have the right to request a
large-scale future land use
map amendment for the site
in order to change the
nonpermitted status of the
activity, Hammons said.


Public hearings with op-
portunity for public input
would be required for ap-
proval, he noted.
County code enforcement
had charged the motorcross
track with violation not only
in connection with unpermit-
ted activity but also with fail-
ure to obtain a development
order.
Hammons testified that a
development. order is re-
quired for any "significant
activity" on one's property.
The requirement for a devel-
opment order is not limited
to the most common situa-
tion, where property is di-
vided into three or more par-
cels, he explained.
In addition, code enforce-
ment had charged the prop-
erty owners, with a violation
for continuing track activity
after being issued a notice of
violation and stop work order
by Wright on Jan. 26.
Representing the property
owners, l'cal attorney Col-
leen Coffield argued that. the
land use classification of the
property was not an issue
since the property had been
used in the same manner for
many years, there had been
"no new development," and,
moreover, there had been a
prior agreement between the
county and the property own-
ers allowing for the track ac-
tivity.
She explained that Lutker.
and Emmons had purchased
the property with the intien-
tion of starting a commercial
motorcross track enterprise
but had later learned that
this was not permitted.
Still, motorcross activity
apparently continued on the
site.
A 2002 stop work order
placed on track activity by
code enforcement was with-
drawn, Coffield explained,
following an "agreement"
with former Code Enforce-
ment Coordinator Phillip
Green, the agreement being
that use of the track would
be allowed for family mem-
bers of the owners.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


PERSONAL COMMENTS



EDITOR'S COMMENT



Development, density and 331


By RON KELLEY
As editor, I am sometimes asked, "Do you have a hard
time coming up with topics for your editorials?" The answer
is no. In fact, I don't have enough space to address every
issue as I'd like. Sometimes, I even find a need to address
an issue more than once.





Editor,
Each year around October or November, letters are sent.
out and phone calls made asking for our community's help
with our Santa Patrol. If it were not for this help, the pro-
gram would not be a success. Some times we take it for
granted that every child will have a gift under the tree at
Christmas. But if it was not for this program and many oth-
ers just like it, a lot of children would have very little at
Christmas. So, on behalf of Sheriff Johnson, I would like to
thank the following citizens and businesses for their help
and support.
SSouth Walton High School Interact Club, Mr. and Mrs.
Jim Clouse, Martha Brooks, Julie Condon, Kimberly Layden,
Maureen Kessler, Monney Bonding Agency, St. Joe Arvida/
Watercolor. Pelican Real Estate, Rosemary Beach Property
Owners Association, Dollar General, Congregation of King
Lake Chapel, Sandestin Owners Association, Sandestin Golf
& Beach Resort, Hilton of Sandestin, Pastor Tby Arnett and
the congregation of Faith Assembly, Marine Corps League,
Pete Elkins and the employees of Wal-Mart, Faye Leddon
and all of the staff of the Army Aviation Federal Credit Union
and to all of the people who dropped off gifts at the South
Walton Substation..
Accept my apology if your name or business was not listed
above. It was not left out intentionally.
Lt. Eddie Farris
Walton County Sheriff's Office



Editor,
My handicapped wife and I wish to ring the bell of warn-
ing for Walton seniors regarding a bunko game of which we
have fallen victim. Embarrassed as we are, we still feel ob-
ligated to alert others to our loss.
Simply put, last spring we became friendly with a "nice"
young man from Niceville who sold us a pure water.sys ehm
for our house. He claimed he needed help to purchase tools,
equipment, materials and a truck in order to manage two
construction crews which would do sidings, roofs, repairs.
eEc'. for contractors and others in'.our area. And h6 told us he
knew others who had or were helping him get started. Fool-
ishly, we gave him a no interest loan of $10,700 from our
meager savings to g'ebhim started.
Sure enough, despite a signed, written agreement to re-
pay us $500 monthly to satisfy our loan, he failed to make
any payment whatsoever. He won't answer our letters or
answer our phone calls.
Then we learned he had a criminal history going back to
1995, when he was 20 years old, including misdemeanors,
felonies, sexual offensives, etc.
In late August 2004, he was rearrested for violation of his
probation on- other charges and incarcerated: in the Oka-
loosa jail. He was paroled last month and is now free to
resume defrauding innocent citizens.
The Walton County DA, Greg Ankers, has our file and is
studying the case for criminal court. Also the "Seniors vs
Crime" office in Navarre has been looking into the case for
us. This organization assists seniors who are victims of
scams.
We feel duty-bound to expose this man and will reveal all
information we have relative to this con artist to any senior:
who may be approached by a personable, 29-year-old with a
sad but bogus story to tell. Our phone number before 7 p.m.
is 835-2472.

For instance, a few weeks ago, I took exception to a deci-
sion by the Walton County Commission that allowed for
greater density in areas that are more susceptible to flood-
ing and wind damage.
I later interviewed Commissioner Scott Brannon about
the issue and I believe he was sincere in his attempt to right
what he and other commissioners perceived as a wrong, as
, it relates to the 100-year floodplain and the V-zone. I'.
However, it appears that the Florida Department of Com-
munity Affairs (DCA) and the Department of Environmen-
tal Protection (DEP) shared many of my concerns. Their
report was released a few days ago and they took exception
to the BCC changes and noted that the proposed amend-
ment to the county's comprehensive plan still fails to clear
up inconsistencies between it and the county's. land devel-
opment code, which was the original purpose of the amend-
ment.
The commissioners may still resubmit the document for
approval, but it appears that, if they do, they could face an
uphill battle to get it approved by the state.
Another issue has again come to the forefront of the news
the widening of U.S. 331. No one living in Walton County
for the last 20 years can have failed to notice the overwhelm-,
ing increase in traffic on that two-lane highway, which rep-
resents the only nprth-south connector road from the Ala-
bama state line and the beaches of south Walton.
DOT traffic studies on the road do not, apparently, meet
the criteria needed for the state to initiate a four-lane project
on the highway. I do not know what amount of traffic is
required to trigger such a project, but it's difficult for me to
park beside the road on any day of the week and count cars
and not think that the need for such a project is inescapable
and unarguable.
Maybe the traffic counts are being done on a Sunday night
between midnight and 6 a.m. in the middle of winter. I don't
know. What I am told when I ask is that I should contact
my representatives' and take it up with them. That leads
me to believe what I have suspected all along it's simply a
question of politics, whoknows who and who's got the clout.
Okay, fine. Let's find out what kind of.clout our local, state
and federal representatives have. If we can get approval for
a portion of U.S. 98 (which can never serve as anevacua-
tion route during hurricanes or tropical storms) to be six-
laned for nothing more pressing than to accommodate ex-
cessive commercial development, we should be able to shake
loose some money for a potentially life-threatening emer-
gency evacuation route.
The Walton County Commission will be going to Wash-
ington, D.C. in March to meet with our federal representa-
tives. The two commissioners I've spoken to, Pridgen and
Meadows. say that widening U.S,.'33" 'is.their top priorit.
Phi' sure they arid the rest of the commissioners would ap-
preciate hearingfrom concerned citizens and knowing they
have your support. I would also recommend that you write
or e-mail your state and federal legislators, too.
We know all our representatives can walk softly. Let's see
if they can also carry a big stick.



Editor:
Protection of the natural environment is one value shared
by an overwhelming majority of Americans,except for the
Walton Board of County Commissioners. Four of the five
commissioners voted late last year to amend the county's
comprehensive plan to let people build more in the V-Zone
and near wetlands areas that most need protection from
storm damage and overbuilding.
Fortunately, this anti-common-sense scheme has been
shot down by the state and regional agencies that review
proposed changes to our comp plan. The state departments
of Community Affairs, Environmental Protection, and Trans-
portation, and the Northwest Florida Water Management
District all wrote fairly scathing reactions to the proposals.
The BCC can still pass them, of course, but I don't think
they will do so--especially if they read many letters to the
editor and receive e-mails from lots of folks.
An interesting point mentioned by the DEP points -out
that just because a permitting agency (like itself) okays a
fill permit for a wetland does not mean the .planning body
(the BCC) should substitute that judgement for its own.
The DEP report states .that "a location's natural envi-
ronmental characteristics render the site inherently more
suitable for some land uses than for others. In contrast the
permitting process is primarily reactive--that is, the pro-
cess is focused on an, application for a specific activity at a,
particular site."
The report then recommends that Walton County be "pro-
active in identifying and preserving its natural resources
by directing land uses into areas where infrastructure is
available and where density and intensity of use can be best
accommodated with minimal effects on the natural resource
base."
The point is underscored in remarks from the NWFWMD,
which states that, "including an essentially absolute excep-
tion to a wetland protection policy when permits have been
granted would seem to render the policy meaningless."
If you too are concerned, see more details at the South
Walton Community Council web site,
www.southwaltoncc.org, click on Updates. And please tell
our commissioners how you feel. Nancy James

Editor:
Woodlawn residents-Are you aware.
All indications are that the DOT operations center planned
for location in Woodlawn will be supplied water service from
the City of DeFuniak Springs. Survey work is currently un-
derway to make this a reality. Annexation into the DeFu-
niak Springs city limits will likely follow for the area af-
fected.
The Woodlawn Community, Inc. board of directors and
concerned citizens continue to meet the second Tuesday of
each month at 7 p.m. as they have since 1971 at the
Woodlawn Community Center. Please attend and voice your


concerns for the coming changes. D.C. Gandy

TRACK


that Green told them ver-
bally that friends would also
be allowed to use the track.
However, their only evidence
of the agreement, a letter
from Green, references only
family members.)
Coffield said the track is
being used only by family and
friends of the owners, with no
commercial use and no
money being charged for
track use.
Nor has there been any
"material change" in the
property since the agree-
ment, she argued.
During testimony it came
to light that part of the prop-
erty had once been used'as a
borrow pit,.but that pit activ-
ity had apparently ceased
many years previously.
Pat Rice, a neighbor of the
property, testified that prior
to the current owners' pur-
chase of the property in 2002,
there had been no motor ve-
hicle riding there except for
one child, the grandson of the
previous owner, who rode a
four-wheeler.
"It has escalated into a
nightmare," she complained.'
Rice said the area behind
her house, which is about 200
yards from the pit area, was.
cleared for track use after the
current owners purchased
the property.
Rice called the contention
that there was no commercial
use "totally bogus." She said
she had seen 25-30 vehicles
on the track at one time.
"In another location, that
would be wonderful...here it's
totally wrong," she com-
mented.'
Lynn Downham, whose
home lies to the south of the
property, noted that commer-
cial or not, "the level of noise
is the same."
Downham said her home is
a log cabin with eight-inch-
thick walls and she still can-
not escape the noise in any
part of the structure.
Rich McGill, who owns
property on the north side,
gid that when he purchased
iIs'tract about a year and a
kaltf ago it "'appeared that
$30,000-40,000 had recently
been spent transforming the
old pit for motorcross use. He
said he had seen activity pick
up within the past few
months, with between 20 and
40 vehicles parked on the
property at times and riders
of all ages on the track. '
"It is quite a noisy situation
in the middle of a very quiet
neighborhood," said another
neighboring property owner,
Beth Doolin. In contrast with
other testimony, Doolin said
that significant motor vehicle
noise, traffic and partying
had also taken place on the
property before it was pur-
chased by the current own-
ers.
She said she had at-
tempted to purchase the
track property at one point
but that her offer was re-
jected.
"It just doesn't belong
there," Hawthorne Road resi-
dent and neighbor Randall
Sebreth testified. He said he
sometimes takes his family
"to the mniall" just to escape
the noise on weekends, the
time when most of the track
activity takes place.
"It's like a dentist drilling
into your teeth every day," he
described the noise.
Forest Oaks Drive home-
owner John Schwab said that
'when he bought his lot in
2003, the track was inactive
but that activity "started up"
about the time he was half
finished building his house,
around New Year's 2005. He
said the'noise is hard to es-
cape because it is "high
pitched."
Kira Coley of Walton
County Legal Services
pointed out that the purpose
of the development order pro-
cess is to make sure that


neighbors are protected with
regard to land uses on prop-
erty in their vicinity. In the
absence of that process, there
is no way to insure, for ex-,
ample, proper buffering of
activities or required


From Front


stormwater management,
she explained.
"The county believes the
track is in violation," Coley
said.
It was her opinion that the
letter from Green did not con-
stitute an "agreement" since
it was not entered into by
both parties. She also main-
tained that Green had not
possessed the authority to
enter into agreements in
which neither the board of
county commissioners nor
county administration had
participated in creating.
"The county accepted the
use when it rescinded the
notice of violation...this has
been decided already."
Coffield countered, referring
to the 2002 code enforcement
action.
She added that, although
the owners had understood
that friends could be in-
cluded, they were willing to
limit track use in the future
to family members of the-two
owners, which would amount
to approximately ten people
riding on the track. The own-
ers would also be willing to
freeze membership in the
track limited liability corpo-
ration (L.L.C.) so. that use
would not- be expanded in:
that way, she noted.
,Board attorney Bill
Wyrough emphasized the dif-.
ficulty of making a judgment
on the issues involved.
WhiIe a lone person riding
a motorcycle in their yard
would not, constitute a com-
mercial motorcross track,
and a track with stands,
spectators and competition
would definitely be judged as
one, "what we've got here is
something in between," he
noted.
The first board official find-
ing was that code
enforcement's Jan 26 stop
work order was ignored, con-
stituting a violation.
The second was that the
use of the property was not
an allowable one in the land
use category. ,.
"They're having soCMe..
pretty sophisticated: w'01l-
run events tliere,"observed'
board member Richard
Fowlkes. Fowlkes also com-
mented that, with regard to
Green's letter, reference is
made only to family mem-
bers.
"It's clear that they've used
it beyond family members,"
he said.
In a three'to two vote, the
members also found that the
owners had operated without
a development order which
should have been obtained.
The property owners were
directedto comply with the
stop work order by ceasing
and desisting motorcross
track activity. Wright'had,
recommended requiring that
a "reclamation plan" be com-
pleted on the property within
30 days if the board.found the
property in violation. How-
ever, the board opted to allow
the property owners a win-
dow of time in which to seek
a large-scale amendment,
even though some board
members expressed doubt
that this would be a success-
ful effort in view of neighbor-
hood opposition.
The: Code Enforcement
Board 'is empowered to levy
fines if' parties found in vio-
lation ido not comply with
board decisions.
Code Enforcement Coordi-
nator Kevin Hargett said
that he will follow up on the
decision by responding to any
further neighborhood com-
plaints by issuing citations
for any motorcross riding on
the track by persons who do
not live on the property.
(A citation program was
recently reinitiated for code
enforcement use in connec-
tion with stop work orders
and other cases of a serious
nature.)
At the close of the hearing,


the property owners said
they had not decided what
course of action they would
pursue ,

Division of

Forestry to

investigate

fire
By BRUCE COLLIER

A "wild land fire" last week
on County Commissioner
Kenneth Pridgen's property
is under investigation by the
Florida Division of Forestry.
Chief Ron Prokop of the
Darlington-Gaskin Fire Sta-
tion reported that his station
received a call at 17:29 hours
(5:29 p.m.) on the evening of
February 17. The call was for
a "wild land fire" at 5309
Punch Bowl Road, an area
within his station's primary
response area.
The Darlington-Gaskin
station was among the units
responding to the fire. The
firefighters arrived to find
Commissioner Pridgen on his
property. According to
Prokop, Pridgen said that a
building that had been on
fire was already completely
burnt. The firefighters
turned their efforts to the
land fire, which they extin-
guished. No one was appar-
ently on the property, and no
injuries were reported.
An investigation the next
morning showed that a
20'x20' storage building had
been completely burned.
Burn patterns on the land,
along with other indications,
raised the possibility that
the fire may have been in-
tentionally set.
Chief Prokop added that
Bruce Smith, an official at
the regional office of the
state Division of Forestry,
has called for a full investi-
gation by the Division into
the circumstances of the fire.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2005


US 331


aligning 331 more directly
through Freeport is good
idea," said area resident Bob
Reid. "The one-mile lateral
jog as now exists is not good
for the town, and it's not good
for rapid south Walton emer-
gency evacuation. There
should be a way to straighten
the road without serious en-
vironmental damage." Nec-
essary DEP (Department of
Environmental Protection)
permits have already been
issued for the project.
Soon after the completion
of the 331 bypass, another ex-
pansion is scheduled. In
2008, the portion of 331 south
of Highway 20 is slated to be
four-laned as the next incre-
ment of the DOT's plan to
enhance evacuation routes,
improve safety and relieve
congestion. "These projects
must be done in increments,"
said Roger Robinson of Sena-
tor Durell Peaden's office.
"Unfortunately, there are no
such things as instant roads,
but we would like to eventu-
ally see 331 widened all the
way to the state line."
While these road improve-
ments seem to have been a
long time in coming, they are
actually being implemented
far earlier than originally an-
ticipated. According to the
former DOT plan, the 331
bypass was scheduled to be
built in 2008, but because of
an aggressive five-year plan,
construction will soon be un-
derway. "We are behind this
project because it is like tak-
ing your life in your hands to
drive on that stretch of road,"
said Marse.
Walton County Commis-
sion Chairman Kenneth
Pridgen expressed his- frus-
tration over the county's in-
ability thus far to accomplish
the four-lane project.
"I can remember my father
(former Walton County Com-
missioner Sam Pridgen) try-
ing to get 331 four-laned.
We've tried everything we
can think of to make it hap-
pen. We're going to be late -
even if we started today. We
don't need to wait for a catas-
trophe," he said.


From Front


The commissioners are
planning a trip to Washing-
ton in early March to meet
with U.S. representatives
Jeff Miller and Allen Boyd
and U.S. senators Bill Nelson
and Mel Martinez.
Pridgen said that getting
331 four-laned will be his top
priority and the reason for
making the trip.
"It's very important for us
as a county, as we continue
to grow, and not just in south
Walton but in places like
Freeport and DeFuniak
Springs, up here in Gaskin
and throughout north Wal-
ton," said Pridgen.
He said that tourists are
not the only ones to use the
highway. "People from all
over north Walton," he said,
"who work in south Walton,
have to travel that road ev-
eryday. Something's got to
give."
He said U.S. 90 will soon
be another major thorough-
fare demanding of attention.
"When you consider the
Mossy Head industrial park
and the jobs and industry
that will bring, we are going
to have to improve that high-
way, too."
"We've got to have the in-
frastructure to keep up with
our growth."
Walton County Commis-
sioner Cindy Meadows is a
member of the Okaloosa -
Walton Transportation Plan-
ning Organization (TPO) and
she says getting 331 four-
laned will be her top priority,.
too.
"It's almost.as though Wal-
ton County needs its own
transportation authority, be-
cause every county has its
own specific needs and we've
got to look at the bigger pic-
ture and start looking for out-
of-the-box solutions," she
said.
"DOT officials say the traf-
fic numbers don't warrant
four-laning 331 at this time.
I don't know how the DOT
creates their formulas. :but I
do know that with the devel-
opment we already know is
,coming, we soon will qualify."
.-. pMeadows says traffic is


"Deluxe Vaudeville Orchestra" to give

free concert at Chautauqua Assembly


heavy year round now and
there is almost no off-season
anymore.
"Between the snowbirds,
the spring breakers, summer
tourists, retirees and autumn
events, there is no slow time
in Walton County anymore,
"It may be that we need to
increase our lobbying efforts
in Tallahassee and Washing-
ton in order to get state and
federal funds for this
project."
Meadows noted that Gov.
Jeb Bush's lame-duck status
could work to our advantage.
"Candidates are finding out
how powerful the Panhandle
has become to statewide
races and any candidate for
governor who can address
our.needs and help us solve
our transportation problems
can almost be assured of get-
ting elected."
Meadows agreed with
Pridgen that the primary fo-
cus .for the Washington trip
is to gain the support of our
legislative delegation and
identify some federal funding
sources.
Meadows said, "We're al-
most behind the eight-ball
and U.S. 331 is the key," :

issue and to see how legisla-
tors respond to questions

Now is a great time to.
transplant shrubs and trees.
while they are still mostly
dormant. They will undergo
less shock if they are moved
before they begin to, leaf out.
Try to salvage as much of the
root ball as possible when
digging the plant up.
After moving the plant be
sure to water it regularly
until it gets established. If
the shrub need to be replaced
choosing a Florida native is
always the best option;
For help with choices, the
Walton County Master Gar-
deners are available to give
advice. IFAS has helpful free
publications on using natives
in your landscape available
at your extension office.
For anyone concerned
about plants looking less
than healthy, this would be
a good time to take a soil
sample. Take it to the local
extension office and a soil
test for PH can be done. The
soil acidity, (acid or alkaline)
will dictate how to amend the
soil to make your plants
thrive. Now is the time to fer-
tilize camellias, fruit trees,
shrubs, vines and ground
covers.
There are many specialty
fertilizers available on the
market now to make this job
easier. Remember that pecan
trees need a fertilizer that
contains zinc. When fertiliz-
ing trees it is best to spread
the broadcast area out two
feet past the spread of the
branches. Most of a tree's
feeder roots are in the top
layer of the soil.

Now is the time to cut back
ornamental grasses. If new'
growth starts before they are
trimmed back, one might cut
some of the new with the old
and this will cause the
grasses to look a little ragged.
If the plant is dead in the cen-'
ter, divide it and rejuvenate
it.
The daffodils, paper whites
and leucojums that are in
bloom now should be allowed
to die naturally. Leave the,
green leaves alone until they
start to turn brown. This will
help replenish the bulbs' en-
ergy for the following year's
blooms.
This is a good.time of year
to plant bulbs like agapan-
thus, amaryllis, callas, dahl-
ias and freesias. Plant gladi-
oli now, too.


For a longer blooming time,
stagger the planting over
several weeks so they will,
bloom at different times for
longer lasting color.

Even though we are seeing
some warmer days and new,
green leaves are beginning to
peek out, do not get in a
hurry to cut back cold dam-
aged leaves yet. It is best to
wait till mid-March. If we
encourage them to start
growing before the weather

become damaged by the re-,
maining cold weather weeks.
Don't put those tender bed-
ding plants out yet. The last

establish a community development district to be known as the Somerset Community.
Development District ("District"), as authorized and provided for in Chapter 190, Florida
Statutes. A copy of the Petition is on file and available for public inspection and/or copy-
ing at the Office of the Clerk of Court, Walton County Courthouse,.571 U.S. Highway. 90,
DeFuniak Springs, Florida, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. except on

owners, any affected units of local government, and the general public, a fair'and ade--:,
quate opportunity to appear and present oral and written comments regarding the estab-
lishment of the District. If adopted, the ordinance will establish the Somerset Community
Development District, name its initial Board of Supervisors and designate the land to be
.serviced by the District.
The. land area proposed to be served by the District is generally located on both sides
of County Road 30A, west of.Seacrest Beach, east of County Road 395 and is bordered
on the south by the Gulf of Mexico. The District will comprise approximately 158.49
acres of land. The boundaries of the lands proposed to be served by the District are out-
lined in the map depicted in this notice. There is no real property located within the
boundaries of the District that will be excluded from the jurisdiction of the District. The
Petitioner has proposed that the District will construct or acquire certain infrastructure
improvements in order to serve a development commonly referred to as the Alys Beach
development.. \ \

district is a local unit of
special, purpose govern-
ment authorized by statute
to ensure the provision of
infrastructure to serve com'-
munity developments sub-
ject to state and local regu-
latory requirements gov-
erning the lawful use and,
development of the prop-
erty. Establishment of a
district pursuant ot Chapter
190, Florida Statutes, is not
a development order.under
Chapter 380, Florida
Statutes. All planning, per-
mitting and other regulatory
requirements pertaining to
development within the
land area will be in accor-
dance with general and
special law, and the Walton


County Comprehensive Plan.
The Board will comply with section 190.005(2), Florida Statutes, in conducting the
public hearing on whether to establish the District by ordinance. The purpose of this
hearing is to consider the relationship of the petition as submitted by the Petitioner to the
six factors listed in section 190.005(1)(e), Florida Statutes.
A statement of estimated regulatory cost ("SERC") was prepared by Rizzetta &
Company, Inc., in compliance with section 120.541, Florida Statutes, as required by sec-
tion 190.005, Florida Statutes. The complete text of the SERC is contained as Exhibit 9
to the Petition. By way of summary, the SERC estimates that the principal entities likely
to be effected by the ordinance are the State of Florida, Walton County, Florida, and the
District, and describes the type of individuals most affected by the ordinance as the
landowners within' the District. The SERC estimates that establishment and enforcement
costs to the above-described entities will be modest and are concurrently budgeted or
not burdensome; and, that there will be little to no effect on state and local revenues
from the establishment of the District. Further, the SERC estimates that certain
development-related transactional costs incurred would, occur regardless of whether the
District was established and are voluntarily assumed if at all by and through individuals
or entities owning or purchasing property in the District. Finally, the SERC concludes
that the establishment's affect on small business will be minimal or positive and the
Walton' County is neither a small city nor county as defined by section 120.52, Florida
Statutes.
Interested persons are advised that, if a person decides to appeal any decision made
by the County Commission with respect to any matter considered at a hearing, he or
she will need a record of the proceedings, and that, for such purpose, he or she may
need to ensure that a verbatim record of the proceedings is made, which record
includes the testimony and evidence upon which the appeal is to be based.
Persons needing special accommodations to attend any hearing noticed hereinabove
as a result of a disability must contact Ronnie Bell, County Administrator, at 850-892-
8156, not less than forty-eight (48) hours before a hearing or meeting in order to make
arrangements.

JOB SHADOWING 2005


E A HUGE SUCCESS


During the week of January 31-February 4, high school jun-
iors and seniors from all Walton County high schools were
afforded the unique opportunity to explore career options
by participating in the 2005 Job Shadowing Week. This week
SIN is sponsored by The Walton County School District in con-
junction with The Jobs Plus Youth OneStop Career Center.
Job Shadowing gives students a chance to experience first
-. hand a career they are interested in. High school juniors
- and seniors are invited to fill out an "application" indicating
their first. second, and third career choices allowing them to
be placed for a day with a local business within one of their
interest, areas. Through this involvement, students can be-
B come familiar with the "real world" aspects of the business
which can help them make the educational choices needed -
_]w k S to better prepare them to enter into the workforce or to con-
- tinue their education after high school. U
This year, 51 youth and 39 businesses from all over Wal- 1 '
ton County participated in the Job Shadowing Program. One I I I
lB S comment that was heard repeatedly was that businesses -
i O, would like the students to stay for more than one day. Stu- I ..i
.., ,H dents also asked when they could return to the businesses, 111 ,i
demonstrating the tremendous success of the Job Shadow-
*| ing Program. Next year is planned to be bigger and better
than ever.
The Walton County School District and The Jobs Plus
5 4 Youth OneStop Career Center expressed appreciation to the ROBERT THOMAS shadoucd at DFS police d

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2005


The cause of our salvation

by Dr. Robert M. Jaye


SEEDS
FROM
*. THE
SOWER'

Michaef A..Guido
Mener. Georgia

A father gave his son a
globe of the world. Keeping
it in his room, the boy en-
joyed finding faraway places.
Late one night, the father
slipped into his son's room to
locate a missionary. Just as
he was spinning the globe the


boy woke up, demanding,
"Daddy, what are you doing
with my world?"
That's a good question.
Can't you hear the Lord .ask
it?
Are you making it better or
worse?
Your influence never dies.
Every act, emotion, look and
word makes your influence
count for good or evil, happi-
ness or woe, heaven or hell.
Like the boy, the Lord de-
mands, "What are you doing
with My world?"


Salvation is the work of the
Lord. It is He alone who
quickens the soul "dead in
trespasses and sin"
(Ephesians 2:1) It is He also
who maintains the soul in its
spiritual life. He is both "Al-
pha and Omega." In John
2.9 we are taught "Salvation
is of the Lord." It is not our
vote that bring us anything
that comes from the Lord. We
find our salvation is of Him,
by grace.

If I am prayerful,. God


makes me prayerful. If I have
graces,-they are God's gifts to
me. If I hold on in a consis-
tent life, it is because He up-
holds me with His hand. I
can do. nothing toward my
own preservation, except
what God Himself first does
in me. Whatever I have, all
my goodness is of the Lord
alone.
, When I sin, that is my own.
When I act rightly, that is of
God, wholly and completely.
If I have repulsed a spiritual
enemy, the Lords' strength


was the cause. Do I live be-
fore men a consecrated life?
It is not I, but Christ who
lives in me. I do not cleanse
myself; it is God's Holy Spirit
who sets me apart. Am I free
from the world's influence? I
am free because of God's
chastisement for my good. Do
I have knowledge? The great
instructor teaches me.
Anything good about me is
fashioned by heavenly art. I.
find in God all that I want. I
find in myself nothing but sin
and misery. He only is my


Rock and my Salvation. Do I
feed on the Word? That Word
would not be food for me un-
less the Lord made it food for
my soul, and helped me to
feed upon it. Do I live on the
manna which comes down
from heaven? What is that
manna butChrist Jesus
Himself incarnate, whose
body and whose blood were
given for me? What Jonah
learned in the great deep, let
me learn each morning in my
closet of' prayer: "Salvation
is of the Lord."

The Lord is my Shepherd-That's relationship!
I shall not want-That's supply!
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures-That's
rest!
He leadeth me beside the still waters-That's refresh-
ment!
He restoreth my soul-That's healing!
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness-That's
guidance!
For His name sake-That's purpose!
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow
of death-That's testing!
I will fear no evil-That's protection!
For Thou art with me-That's faithfulness!
Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me-That's disci-
pline!
Thou prepares a table before me in the presence of
mine enemies-That's hope!
Thou annointest my head with oil-That's consecration!
My cup runneth over-That's abundance!
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the
days of my life-That's blessing!
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord-That's secu-
rity!
Forever-That's eternity!

S00. WE WILL !BE E TOg 'lf-'CEqR

You haven't' been gone too long
But it seems like forever
We miss your handsome smile
That we will remember forever.
I know I heard it said
And now I know its true
But you never really realize what you got
Until its taken from you
But the tears are tears of joy
We are not sad and blue
Because one day real soon
We will all be home with you
So continue to keep watch
.And guide us with your hand
We will blow some kisses to you
And send them by the wind
We thank you for the love that you gave
throughout your life
Because of you we are stronger and
strive to live right
Save a place for me up there in sweet Glory
Tell Grandma Mae Hi and that we miss
her wonderful stories


We think of you all the year through
We had to put it on paper
Because our thoughts are true
Remember, no matter what may come
Regardless of how bad the weather
I know that one thing is for sure
And that is..
Soon we will be together!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDDADDY
WE MISS YOU AND LOVE YOU SOI

Freeport

falls to

Bonifay

By PATRICK CASEY
The Freeport Bulldogs boys
basketball season came to an
end as the Holmes County
Bluedevils eliminated Free-
port from the District 2, Class
2A tournament in Ponce de
Leon 66-57.
Bonifay used a 23-7 second
quarter run to build a 36-20
halftime lead. The Bulldogs
were unable to rally from the
large deficit and were hurt by
poor free throw shooting on
the night as they could mus-
ter only 10-of-26 shooting
from the charity stripe.
Seniors Kevin Tolson and
Kemp Caudill led the way as
Tolson scored 23 points in his
final game with Caudill add-
ing 10 before fouling out late
in the contest.
.The loss was the second
consecutive to the Bluedevils
in the district tournament as
Bonifay eliminated Freeport
in 2004 as well. Freeport
ends the year with a 14-12
record.

PDL girls edge


Jay Royals 45-42


By PATRICK CASEY
The Ponce de Leon Lady
Pirates used a 15-3 run in the
third quarter to rally from a
17-16 halftime deficit as they
hung on for a 45-42 win over
the Jay Royals in the first
round of the Class 2A girls
basketball playoffs. Mary
Howes scored 13 points and
Catherine Tinsley 12 to pace
the Pirates to the victory and
a rematch with North Florida
Christian in Tallahassee on
Tuesday, February 22.
The Pirates took a quick 8-
0 lead in the first quarter
only to cool off in the second
quarter and fall behind to the
Royals at halftime. The Roy-


als, who started five seniors
on a team with an 18-6
record, rallied in the fourth
quarter behind Jessica Ivey's
19 points as they kept the
game close. Pirates coach
Tim Alford assigned two
players to guard Ivey, who
nailed four 3-pointers in the
final period, as her team-
mates struggled to hit bas-
kets from the floor.
PDL(23-5) could be in for a
rematch with Chipleyon Sat-
urday, February 26, if they
can beat NFC in Tallahassee.
NFC defeated PDL 54-52-in
the second game of the sea-
son for the Pirates in Novem-
ber in a game that was
played at Holmes County.

Catfishing good year round


Few anglers will ever have
an opportunity to try to reel
in a freight train, but people
who hook one of Florida's
monstrous catfish have a
pretty good idea of what it
would feel like. One of the
reasons Florida owns the
bragging rights to the "Fish-
ing Capital of the World" title
is this state's lakes and riv-
ers are crammed with catfish
-- and some top the scales at
60 pounds or more.
For lots of Florida fish fry
fanciers, however, it's not so
much the fight as it is the vi-
sion of fresh catfish fillets in
a deep fryer that makes an-
glers giddy. Roll the fillets in
corn meal and drop them
gently into hot vegetable oil,
and keep an eye on them
while you mix up some hush
puppies. Then you whip up
some cheese grits and cole-
slaw. Brew up some iced tea,
and come suppertime, you
will have arrived in Dixie, no
natter where you are. It will
)e the kind of feast that, as
ve southerners like to say,
'makes you want to swat
jour momma's hunting dog."
actually, we don't really say


that; it just sounds like some-
thing we'd say.
"You can catch catfish
pretty much all year long, the
regulations are pretty
simple, the techniques are
easy and you can catch cat-
fish from shore without hav-
ing to buy a lot of fancy equip-
ment," said Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) biologist Kim-
berly Bonvechio. "All it takes
is a hook, line, sinker and
some kind of bait that smells
awful or is otherwise attrac-
tive to catfish."
Blue catfish and flathead
catfish, both found primarily
in rivers, are the largest cat-
fish species in this state's wa-
ters. The state record blue
catfish is a 61.5-pound mon-
ster, and the state record flat-
head weighed in at 49.4
pounds. Channel catfish oc-
cur all over the state. The
state record is 44.5 pounds,
while the record for the chan-
nel catfish's smaller cousin,
the white catfish, is 18.9
pounds.
Other catfish species in
Florida's waters include the
abundant, but smaller,


brown and yellow bullheads,
which have rounded tails,
rather than forked tails like
the others.

"Channel cats, white cats
and bullheads are good tar-
gets for kids just learning to
fish," Bonvechio said. "The
equipment is simple, you can
catch them from a pier or
shore, and you don't have to
get up early on a weekend to
go after them. In fact, the
best times to go after catfish
are just before dusk and at
night."

She said catfish's "whis-
kers" or barbels are loaded
with sensory cells that enable
catfish to find food by smell.
That's why successful catfish
anglers use baits with strong
odors like chicken liver or giz-
zards, shrimp, cut mullet and
commercial stink baits.
"Catfish are kind of like
dogs in that respect,"
Bonvechio said. "The worse it
stinks, the better they like it,
although catfish also will
take less fragrant baits, such
as earthworms and freshwa-
ter claims."

State objects to comprehensive plan changes


By TIANA LARSEN
The Department of Com-
munity Affairs (DCA) has
completed its review of the'
proposed comprehensive
,plan amendment submitted
by Walton County.
The comp plan and its com-
panion land development
code (LDC) are the rules gov-
erning how land develops in
the county.
The stated intention of the
lengthy amendment, in the
works since March, 2003,
was to update current comp
plan language, to make the
plan more readable and to
address inconsistencies with
the LDC, which implements
the goals, policies and objec-
tives regarding land use
planning that are set forth in
the comp plan.


Late last year the docu-
ments were completed and
sent to the state for review.
In addition to the DCA, sev-
eral other government agen-
cies reviewed and com-
mented on the proposed
changes.
During the course of updat-
ing and revising the comp
plan, some significant policy
changes found their way into
the amendment. These in-
cluded new wetlands policies,
changes to current policies
concerning allowable densi-
ties in the 100-year flood-
plain, the V-zone (areas sus-
ceptible to wave velocity dur-
ing storms,) and the coastal
high hazard zone (the cat-
egory 1 hurricane evacuation
zone.)
It. is these changes that


drew the most objections
from the reviewing agencies.
"Specific areas of concern we
have center upon wetland
and floodplain protection
consistent with statutory and
rule provisions and the im-
pacts of the proposed amend-
ments on the ability of the
county to direct population
concentrations away from
the coastal high hazard
area," wrote the DCA.
Other agencies had similar
concerns. "As noted by the
Northwest Florida Water
Management District, and
the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection,
the proposed text amend-
ments increase the potential
for adverse, cumulative im- -
pacts on .wetland resources
and functions, floodplain


A STANDING-ROOM ONLY crowd turned out for a community meeting called by the
developers of the proposed "Downtown Seagrove," a hotel, condo, office and retail complex
being planned for the corner of CR-395 and CR-30A. The complex would fill the entire
block north to Grove Street, with a 30-room hotel fronting this main intersection in Seagrove.
Included with the hotel is a spa, rooftop swimming pool, ten condo units, retail space on-
the ground floor and an office building on the corner of CR-395 and Grove Street. Some
concerns raised by citizens included the underground parking for 94 cars, which will re-
quire a sizeable excavation, which the project engineer, Jack Arthur, said might take six
months to complete. A few people worried about the water table, but George Hartley, owner
of the Village Market and a partner in the development, said'that extensive soil testing has
shown the parking garage will be considerably above the water table. Concerns were also
voiced about parking for construction workers, increased traffic and loading and unload-
ing of delivery trucks for the hotel and the retail businesses.


THE LARGE CROWD at the community meeting for Downtown Seagrove didn't all
agree on an architectural style befitting "Old Seagrove," but most everyone agreed the
current Regions Bank building isn't it. When told it would be torn down, they responded
with enthusiastic applause. The Village Ma, ket, on the other hand, anticipates rebuilding
in the same location with the same facade that has been there for many years.
r '


functions, and water quality," reviewed again for internal


states the DCA's summary.
The DCA also expressed
concern with the lack of sup-
porting data and analysis ex-
plaining the reasons for the
proposed amendments, as
well as a lack of assessment
of the likely impacts.
The amendments also ap-
pear to fall short of their
stated goal to clarify the
comp plan, as the DCA raised
a number of objections relat-
ing to internal consistency
within the plan between its
various elements. "The pro-
posed amendment should be


consistency and revised as
necessary to provide clear
policy guidance so as to in-
sure a consistent and predict-
able outcome," was the
DCA's recommendation.
The county has 60 days to
adopt the amendment, adopt
it with changes, or determine'
that it will not adopt the
amendment. If adopted,
which would take place at a
public board of county com-
missioners meeting, it would
go back to the DCA, who
would make'a determination
whether or not the amend-


A RIGHT-HAND TURNING LANE will be provided for
hotel guests to use when arriving at the front entrance on the
corner of CR-30A and CR-395, but how will the cars then get
back to the hotel parking entrance, which will be located on
CR-395? This was one of the questions posed to architect
Cary McWhorter, who is designing Downtown Seagrove.
McWhorter said it might be a year before they could break
ground, and the design is not finalized yet. Right now, plans
call for the bike path to be rerouted through the property,
and the westernmost lot fronting CR-30A will be left as a
park, he said.


WILL THE COMMUNITY'S VOICE count in the decisions
about Downtown Seagrove? This question was asked by a
citizen at the community meeting. Billy McConnell, a part-
ner in the development, responded that his group wants to
build something all can be proud of Because of the cost of
the land, he said, it cannot all be on one level, but commu-
nity input into the design is being sought. The audience
seemed somewhat divided about the project. "I intend to live
across the street for the rest of my life. I think it is absolutely
gorgeous," said Bob Ignasiak, drawing a round of applause.
However, Elton Stephens commented that he would prefer
traditional rather than McWhorter's contemporary style.
Stephens also got a round of applause.,


ment is consistent with state
law.
"Objections that are not
addressed may result in a
determination that the
amendment is not in compli-
ances" warns the DCA report.
If the outcome were to be a
finding of non-compliance, a
hearing before the Depart-
ment of Administrative
Hearings would follow.

expedite

By DOTTY NIST
"I am begging you to act
now and appropriately. Do
not allow this travesty to con-
tinue," wrote Ed Berry in a
Feb. 20 email message to
county anl tate officials and
repres4 '4a ves, including
Gov. Jeb Bush.
Berry, a south Walton
County resident and busi-
ness owner, has been a per-
sistent voice for safety at two
dangerous U.S. 98 intersec-
tions, CR-395 and CR-283.
Due in part to his urgings,
about six months ago the
state approved traffic lights
for the two intersections.
However, the lights have yet
to. be installed.
Berry's recent message
was prompted by two acci-
dents with injuries occurring
within a five-day period at
the CR-395 intersection. This
is the same intersection
.where two local teenage girls
were killed in a traffic acci-
dent last year.
In August 2004, in order to
expedite the placement of
traffic lights at the two inter-
sections and alleviate a dan-
gerous situation, Walton
County entered into a joint
partnership agreement with
the state Department of
Transportation-(DOT.)
Through the agreement,
Walton County pledged to
provide design and construc-
tion on the signals, with re-
imbursement to occur when
state monies became avail-
able. A local businessman,
Rick Olson, also agreed to be
a funding partner with the
county on the CR-395 signal.
A recent update from HDR,
an engineering company un-
der contract to. Walton
County, revealed the signals
to be still in the planning
stage. The signals are to be
the "mast arm" type, which
requires soil borings and co-
ordination with companies

that have utilities in place
along the highway. According
to the report, these features
of the projects are under way.
HDR had investigated
whether the mast arm signal
now located at the West
Hewett Road/U.S. 98 inter-
section, which is deemed to
be not warranted, could be
moved to the CR-395 inter-
section in order to get a sig-
nal in place there sooner. It
was reported that this would
not be possible due to "the

Tourists invited for a slice of rural life


By DOTTYNIST
Are small farms and other
rural businesses a feature of
our community worth pre-
serving?
Many of us would agree
that these, enterprises; now
facing challenges to survive,
are a valuable part of our
changing region.
Growth and development,
including the real ,estate
boom along the Gulf, 'have.
increased pressures on farms
and rural businesses. Nor the
least of the current chal-
lenges is that many r.ural'
families are having difficulty,
"finding sources of outside in-
come to supplement earnings
from their farm or property.

Recently a group of 'arni-
ers and rural business' own-i
ers gathered to learn about a
strategy that may help them
resist those pressures and


enhance their prosperity.
'While we may not think of
tourism, one of America's
largest industries, in connec-
tion 'with farms and rural
business, linking the two is
a concept that has succeeded
in other areas and is making
inroads in the Panhandle
and southern Alabama.
Rural tourism, also known
as agri-tou.rism, is "the inter-
face between sustainable ag-
riculture and sustainable.
tourism," according to Dr.
Ann Lastovica, a former Vir-
ginia extension specialist and
an authority on rural tour-
ism.. ..
Lastovica was in Walton
County on Feb. 10 to discuss
tourism-related opportuni-
ties for farms and rural busi-
nesses with local farmers and
business people.

Opportunities Summit" was
hosted by the University of
Florida Extension of Walton
County, in partnership with
University of Florida/Insti-
tute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences (IFAS), the South
Walton Tourist Development
Council and-Milton-based
Three Rivers Conservation
and Development Council.
SConnie Laws, extension
agent for the University of
Florida/IFAS, served as host-
ess and moderator. Laws,
based in DeFuniak Springs,
is engaged in developing
community development
educational programs and is'
a local contact for informa-
tion on rural tourism.
Over 50 farms and rural
businesses participated in-
the Feb. 10 event, represent-'
ing not only Walton County
but a number of neighboring.
counties.
Laws began by emphasiz-
ing the scenic beauty of the
Florida Panhandle and
southern Alabama area and
its natural attraction to visi-
tors, with its vast timber-
lands, beautiful beaches, his-
torical sites and fertile agri-
cultural areas.
She defined rural tourism
as "an alternative enterprise
in which the participant vis-
its a working farm or any
agricultural, horticultural, or
ecological operations for the
purpose of enjoyment, educa-
tion or active involvement in
the activities of the operation
that, in turn, provides
supplemental income for the
landowner."
Lastovica referred to rural
tourism as a "niche market"
within' tourism. She pointed
out that rural tourism
meshes with industry trends
toward "bonding" with the
natural environment and
seeking out America's heri-
tage and culture.
"Families are seeking an
.authenticAmerica,'. she said,:
"Every rural community
has the potential for-tourism,
development." Lastovica
noted. "We share a rich heri-
tage and close proximity to,
populations seeking respite,"
she explained.
Opportunities are not lim-
ited to visitation such as "bed
and breakfast" facilities but
extend to 'the marketing of
agricultural products and
activities or "experiences" to
visitors from other areas, the
participants learned. Some
examples cited include school
group tours, farm demon-
strations, tours of historic
homes and gardens, horse-
back riding excursions, hay
rides, fishing. bird watching.
hiking, canoeing, and camp-
ing.
Rural tourism can be used
to supplement or comple-
ment other income sources or
it may become a primary en-
terprise; opportunities are
limited only byone's imagi-
nation,' Lastovica told the
gathering. '.'

Rural tourism can, in ad-
dition, help support quality
of life in rural areas,
strengthen local economies,
educate tourists about agri-
culture and rural life, and
help rural residents develop
their interpersonal skills, she
explained.
Rural tourism also has a
"multiplier" economic affect
when jobs are created be-
cause visitors purchase food,
fuel and gifts, Lastovica
added.
Two Walton County busi-
ness owners attending the
tourism summit said they
found the event helpful and
the information provided
useful.
Joe Wilkerson represents
Glendale Memorial Natural-
Preserve north of DeFuniak
Springs. Wilkerson's rural
nonprofit business encom-
passes a 350-acre preserve
within which a 70-acre por-
tion has been set aside as a
memorial park, providing an
alternative to contemporary
burial practices for humans
and for pets.
Wilkerson said he con-
stantly gets request for vis-
its and tours of his property
but that he has so far been
unable to translate the inter-
est to financial contributions
to support his business. The
summit gave him ideas on
how to do that, he explained.
Joe Arnold of Big Daddy's
Bike Shop & Beachsports in
Blue Mountain Beach at-
tended, as well. Arnold is a
certified outfitter for bicycle
and kayak excursions, which
are popular with tourists
seeking "eco-vacations."
Arnold said he is looking at
increasing his offerings in
rural areas north of the
Choctawhatchee Bay and
found the summit helpful in'
that regard.

Dune lake outlet permits not making any headway


By TIANA LARSEN
Nearly three years after
the process of applying for
permits to open the outlets of
Oyster, Alligator, Eastern
and Western lakes began, the
county is apparently "not
making any headway," said
Russ Barry, public works di-
rector.
Barry provided the Coastal
Dune Lake Advisory Board
with an update at their Feb.
18 meeting.
Some time ago, Walton
County began seeking so-
called "no notice" permits to
allow the county to open the
outlets on an as-needed ba-
sis.
Presently, each time a lake
needs to be opened, the
county must obtain a one-
time emergency permit. The

density code

On March 1 at 3 p.m. at the
South Walton Annex, the
board of county commission-
ers (BCC) will hold a public
workshop to consider a. new
procedure for hearing devel-
opment order applications.
The applications for major
developments that are pres-
ently heard by the planning
commission would be heard
instead by an administrative
law judge from the Florida
Department of Administra-
tive Hearings. (DOAH)
At 5 p.m. on the same date,
the BCC will hold their regu-
lar monthly land use hear-
ing. Projects heard in Febru-
ary by the planning commis-
sipn will be reyi,~we for fi-.
n l d iion ... ........ .
,The BCC will also consider
a, ordinance amending the
land development code to es-
tablish subcategories to the
"infill" future land use cat-
egory. The proposed change
would add infill subcatego-
ries allowing either two, four,
six or eight dwelling units
per acre.
The purpose of the sub-cat-
egories is "to further assure
compatibility with abutting
areas." The ordinance will
only apply to future amend-
ments applied for; areas cur-
rently designated as in fill
will remain at eight units per
acre.

criteria needed for a permit
to be issued are either water
threatening a septic system
or a finished floor elevation
or a habitable structure.
The no-notice permits
would allow the county to
open the outfalls manually
when the lake water reaches
a pre-determined level.
To determine that level, the
county had an engineering
firm survey all the septic
tanks, drainfields, wastewa-


ter pump stations, finished
floor elevations of homes ad-
jacent to the lakes, low spots
in the public right-of-ways,
docks and the outfalls them-
selves. The engineer then es-
tablished predetermined
trigger levels for opening of
the outlets and.applied for
the no-notice permits for the
four lakes.

Barry, obtaining the permits

get." Each time the various
agencies involved have got-
ten together, Barry said, the
requirements have been ex-
panded. "It seems like a bu-
reaucracy out of control," he
remarked.
The latest request is for a
hydrologic study of all up-


stream water going into the
lakes, Barry said.
The dune lake advisory
board is concerned about citi-
zens taking matters into
their own hands and opening
the lakes themselves, ille-
gally and sometimes inappro-
priately.


After some discussion the
board agreed to attempt to
contact state legislators and
set up a meeting with county
administration and the vari-
ous permitting agencies to
see if some progress can be
made towards obtaining the
permits.

Martineaz announces grant for
the South. Walton Fire District

U.S. Senator Mel Martinez announced that the South
Walton Fire District will receive $171,000 in federal
funds to help with firefighting vehicle operations and
firefighter safety. These funds will be used to assist with
training, equipment, personal protective equipment,
wellness and fitness, and modifications to fire stations,
facilities and vehicles.
These funds have been awarded by the Department of
Homeland Security's Office for Domestic Preparedness,
in conjunction with assistance to a firefighter's grant
program. This year, the program will distribute. $748
million in direct federal assistance to firefighters na-
tionwide.
"I am pleased that the Department of Homeland Se-
curity is following through on its commitment to our
nation's firefighters. These funds will allow the dedicated
men and women of the South Walton Fire Department
to be better prepared to respond to emergency needs in
the community," Senator Martinez said.


have been postponed.
The state Department of
Environmental Protection
(DEP) had scheduled several
days of hearings for this week
in Walton County. The hear-
ings were in connection with'
administrative challenges
filed by two local nonprofit
citizen groups. Those chal-
lenges had been directed at
the state approval of a per-
mit for large-scale
renourishment of approxi-
mately six miles of
beachfront in western Wal-
ton County and Destin.
On Feb. 17, Brad Pickel,
beach management director
for the South Walton Tourist
Development Council, com-
mented that the hearings,
which had been scheduled to
begin on Feb. 21, had been
postponed indefinitely. The
reason for the postponement,
Pickel said, was a severe
medical problem in the fam-
ily of Kenneth Plante, the
attorney representing Wal-
ton County and Destin with
regard to the administrative
challenge.
On Feb. 18, DEP spokes-
person Dee Ann Miller com-
mented briefly that the hear-
ings had been postponed and
that there had been no deci-
sion on a date for reschedul-
ing. .anri*l'p
