Last beam in place


County officials celebrate


By RON KELLEY
Walton County officials
gathered Tuesday morning,
March 1, to make their mark
on history. Two county com-
missioners, the county judge,
the county administrator
and two constitutional offic-
ers signed their name to the
last steel beam to be put in
place in the metal frame
skeleton of the courthouse
addition. According to Citi-
zen Services Director Ken
Little, members of the con-
struction crew also signed
the beam. After the names
were inscribed on the, a
crane lifted it into its place
on the top of the third floor
facing 5th Street. Steelwork-
ers then bolted the beam into
the frame where it will re-
main for the life of the st ruc-
ture.
Little said the construction
is proceeding smoothly. Ac-
cording to Project Manager
Dennis Dallman the building
should really take shape now
that the frame is erected and
activity is more visible.
Quick-decking or the corru-
gated metal forming for the
floors is being put into place.
and the concrete floors will
be poured as utilities conduit
and metal reinforcing is in-
stalled. The exterior walls
can then be constructed on
the metal framing Both
Dallman and County Cor&-
struction Manager Millard
agree that the project is pres-
ently about a month ahead
of schedule due to good
weather and timely arrival
of materials. Millard said the
county officials should be
able to occupy the new build-
ing in the summer of 2006
when the project is expected
to be completed.
County Commission Chair
Kenneth Pridgen said, "This
is an important day for Wal-


ton County. The completion
of this project will allow all
of our constitutional officers
to return to the courthouse,
so that the public can do all
their business at one place.
"I have said from the time
I was elected that we needed
to make the courthouse a
one-stop shop instead of forc-
ing citizens to drive all over
town to do their county busi-
ness," he said. "We should
have finished this five years
ago."

Commissioner Pridgen
said, "Now that we've moved

Nacoochee v.

Pickett awaiting

decision after

two-day trial


By BRUCE COLLIER

Following over two days in
court with five attorneys, six
witnesses, and scores of ex-
hibits, the trial of Nacoochee
*v. Pickett is in the hands of
Judge William Stone. Coun-
sel for both parties made
closing arguments on the af-
ternoon of February 24.
This trial, postponed from
an earlier date, was origi-
nally to have been heard by
Judge David Green, who re-
cused himself last year.
This lawsuit arose last
spring out of a contract for
purchase and sale of real
property in DeFuniak
Springs, owned by Diane
Pickett. The prospective pur-
chaser was to have been
Eagle Land Group. Eagle
subsequently assigned its
interest to Nacoochee Corpo-
ration.
Pickett and Eagle Land
Group entered into an agree-
ment to sell the property,
known as Pickett's Crossing,
for the purpose of develop-
ment. The original contract


price was $3,635,500 for
1398.28 acres.
The contract contained
provisions calling for sur-
veys, assessments of endan-
gered species, and delinea-
tion of wetlands acreage.
The contract called for
Eagle Land Group to make
earnest money deposits at
specified times. Also in the
contract was a paragraph,
under which the purchase
price might be adjusted, de-
pending on a survey's deter-
mination that the property
was more or less than the
specified 1398.28 acres.
The trial was held in the
South Walton Courthouse
Annex. Plaintiff Nacoochee
-was represented by Cary
Ichter and Beth T. Baer of
Balch & Bingham ofAtlanta,
and by local counsel James
W. Grimsley of Smith,
Grimsley, Bauman,
Pinkerton, Petermann &
Shaw of Ft. Walton Beach.
Pickett was represented by

DeFuniak Airport will attract new businesses


By LIZ SINCLAIR
In his Feb. 28 report to the
DeFuniak Springs City
Council, Mike Standley, city
manager, said-, with all the
ongoing and upcoming
projects, the municipal air-
port will look very different
a year from now.
Standley explained that as
soon as a new taxi way can
be completed, at least six
businesses want to build
hangars along the addition
access. The city is waiting for
the release of funds to begin.
The council approved the
creation of a legal agreement
with Monarch Aviation, an
,avionics and electronics busi-
ness. USDA Rural Develop-
ment has accepted the first
phase of an application that


would give $198,000 to build.
a facility for the business,
with an additional $84,000
coming from Enterprise
Florida.
Four buildings to be used
by Aero FX, Inc. are nearing
completion. Aero FX will use
the buildings to maintain
and refurbish aircraft, em-
ploying at least 20 people.
The business also brought in
a plane manufacturer into
the airport.
Destin Air Charters wants
to build a 12,000 square foot
building to store aircraft. The
city is preparing a draft
lease.
Additional business at the
Feb. 28 meeting included:
* Curtis Chastain, an inde-
pendent auditor, presented


his report for fiscal year
2003-2004 to the council, say-
ing the financial are "as
good as they can get."
* The council gave City At-
torney Clayton Adkinson the
go ahead to execute a deed
that would give the county 10
acres of city-owned property
on Hinote Road. The acreage,
located about 15 miles west
of the city, is part of a clay
pit and was given to the city
by an individual. The county,
in the words,of a letter
drafted by Walton County
Administrator Ronnie Bell,
may have encroached into,
the property. An agreement
would turn the deed to the
property over to the county
in exchange for unlimited
city use of clay fill from other


county pits, closer to the city.
The county has pits on Rock
Hill and Woodyard roads.
* The council sent its con-
tracted landscape designer
back to the drawing board,
come up with a better plan
for median work to be done
along Hwy. 331 South, be-
tween Hwy. 90 and I-10.
* Crime Stoppers received a
one-time donation of $600 to
seed a grant that would al-
low the organization to buy
full-page advertising of
wanted criminals in The De-
Funiak Herald The ads will
run monthly and showcase
photos. Crime Stoppers
board members Sammy
Sanchez and Dennis Ward
said the photos would be
mainly of felons.


Freeport Council hears project


By Ben Grafton
Paul Miller of the North-
west Florida Regional Plan-
ning Council reported high
marks for the ease of work-
ing with newly hired City
Planner Latilda Henninger.
He then went on with a re-
minder that the inaugural
city planning board meeting
was scheduled for Wednes-
day, March 2.
Miller also reminded the
council that the appraisal of
the City's Comprehensive
Plan is on the horizon and
now is the time to begin
preparations for that event.
Subjects for review should


include the size and location
of commercial areas, future
infrastructure needs, resi-
dential housing mixes, pro-
tection and use of natural
resources and storm water
drainage.
City Engineer Charles Pe-
ters reported receiving six
bids for work on the Bay Loop
Road sewer project. He noted
that grant money available
for construction of the project
was $434,000. The city will
need to add another
$126,000. from available
sources to cover the projected
total cost of $596,000. The
council approved a motion to


award the project to the low
bidder, Southeast Under-
ground Construction, Inc.
The project will be discussed
further at the next meeting.
Peters reported that the
North Bay Water System
lines have been cleared for
use and 90 percent of the
meters installed with meter
installation expected to be
complete on Feb. 25. The old
water system will be kept in
active service for a period to
be decided by the council.
Peters said that mapping
for the Bay Area sewer
project is about 50 percent
complete. Work will have to


be started soon on obtaining
easements to cross creeks.
He also said that work will
permit scheduling a public
meeting to discuss details of
the project with residents in
about six to eight weeks.
Chuck Jones representing
the firm that has been cho-
sen to design the new City
Hall presented preliminary
concept plans to the council
and placed probable con-
struction costs in the neigh-
borhood of $850,000 to
$950,000. The proposed de-
sign is "L" shaped, 6,700

By RON KELLEY
Like principals all over
Florida, Walton Middle
School Principal Russell
Hughes knows the impor-
tance of high FCAT test
scores. Not only are students
required by law to pass the.
exam in order to graduate,
under Gov. Jeb Bush's A+
Schools program, FCAT
scores directly affect a
school's funding. Good scores
brings money while poor
scores causes schools to lose
funding.
Earlier this year, the state
sent Hughes a report on the
schools FCAT progress and
focused on two subgroups
that have traditionally
scored lower on the FCAT.
The subgroups, black stu-
dents and developmentally
disabled students, both fell
below state standards and
have lowered the overall
score for the school's student
FCAT results.
Because of the information
within the report, Principal
Hughes said he decided to try
new ways to boost the scores
of those two subgroups by
sending a letter to parents of
black students and parents of
students, black and white, in
the school's exceptional stu-
dent education (ESE) pro-
gram.
The letter, in part, states,
"This is a crucial time for
Walton Middle School stu-
dents, parents and teachers.
It is clear that the education
of our children cannot be pro-
ductive without you."
One letter closes by saying,
"This is a specific call to the
parents of African American
students at Walton Middle
School." The letter to parents
of ESE students also ends
with a similar statement.
The letter asked parents of
those two subgroups to meet
with Hughes at the school at
one of two different times in
February to discuss how par-
ents can help their child be
better prepared to take the
test. Hughes said he also
went to the Oakdale Apart-
ments complex to meet with
parents there.
In addition, Hughes met
with the student groups
separately and as a whole to
discuss the importance of
doing their best on the test.
Apparently, the letter pro-
voked a negative response
from some parents who say
they object to having the
white children and their par-
ents excluded.


Other parents say they
were unhappy that black stu-
dents were "targeted."
However, Principal
Hughes said his intention
was not to target or exclude
students. based on race.
"Our school, as a whole, did
great. We were one ofthe few
schools that maintained a B.
The goal set last year (by the
state) was for 31 percent of
the students to score at or
above grade level for reading.
Our total score of 54 percent
was awesome. I was elated by
the gains and accomplish-
ments of our student body."
The state goal in math was
38 percent and WMS stu-
dents scored 50 percent, but
black students, as a group,
scored only 35 percent in
math and 25 percent in read-
ing. ESE students scored
only 19 percent in reading
and 18 percent in math.
Hughes said he wasn't
aware of which subgroups
were doing better than other
until the state sent him a re-
port.
"Although we were a B
school, the state classified us
as 'a school in need of im-
provement.' If you're in that.
area, as a Title 1 school, for
two years, the state can le-
gitimately come in and en-
force some things at our
school. So, of course, I don't
want anything like that to
happen, nor does any parent
or student."
Hughes said they have cre-.
ated new programs for the
entire student body, offered
after-school tutoring, inten-
sive reading and math pro-
grams and other measures
designed to make the chil-
dren better prepared for the
FCAT test..
Just how important is
FCAT? "Oh, man. I hate to
say it, but with the power
that the state speaks with, it
is vital to any school. It's our
only measuring stick.
"Walton Middle School is a
lot more than the FCAT. We
do so many awesome things,
innovative things that our
children are partnered with.
It's sad that it's the only tool,
but since it's the only tool, I'm
ready to deal with it," he said.
Hughes said he reached out
to the parents because their
participation is so important.
Hughes said some parents
think all they should have to
do is send the child to school.
However, Hughes said

The Florida Division of
Forestry is investigating a
series of eight suspicious.
wild land fires that took place
over a week on Punch Bowl,
Pen Williams, and Sandy
Ramp Roads in the Gaskin/
Darlington area of Walton
County.
Chief Ron Prokop of the
Darlington Gaskin Fire Sta-
tion reports that his station
was called to extinguish six
fires on Punch Bowl Road on
the evening of February 21.
A seventh fire was re-
ported on February 22 and
the eight on February 28.
The largest of the fires, on


Punch Bowl Road, covered
"several acres."
All of the fires appeared to
have been set during the day,
and all were on wild land. No
people or animals were in-
jured, and no buildings were
affected.
An area resident gave in-
vestigators a description of a
white hatchback vehicle
with dark tinted windows,
that was seen in the area of
several of the fires. Law en-
forcement authorities were
notified. The manner in
which the fires were started
is also under investigation.
Prokop reports that all of
the fires were contained and
extinguished or burnt out.

EDITOR'S COMMENT



Cleaning up one's own backyard


By RON KELLEY
'Recently, it was brought to my attention that a newspa-
per in a neighboring county had decided to offer some well-
intentioned advice to officials in Walton County in one of
their editorials.
Among other things, the piece chided Walton County Com-
missioner Cindy Meadows for saying that the BCC ought to
run the county like a business. The anonymous editorial
writer said, "Commissioner Meadows is confused" and that
"county government isn't anything like a business." The
writer says the difference is that a business must rely on
"voluntary transactions," unlike government, which gets its
iioney from taxes, fees and fines.
I submit that the writer is confused. Anyone who doesn't
think that government is a business needs to take another
look at county, state and federal budgets. Government is
business big business. Having government run a little more
like a business might go a long way towards improving ser-
vices and identifying and replacing employees who are
mostly dead weight, thereby improving efficiency and pro-
ductivity.
As President Calvin Coolidge once said, "The proper busi-
ness of government is business." That's still true today. What
government does, from the White House to the courthouse,
directly shapes business in all its forms. Further, if the only
difference between government and business is whether
transactions are voluntary, then my question is what about
Sprint, Gulf Power and CHELCO?
In the Panhandle, citizens do not choose their local phone
or electric power carriers. Those are assigned according to
the location of one's home or business and no one can sim-
ply switch carriers, even if they are extremely unhappy with
their service or its cost.
So, what does that make those companies business or
government?
Now who's confused?
The writer also took issue with what they termed as our
"bizarre preoccupation with architecture, landscaping and




Editor,
:I received word that the Chautauqua Festival has changed
this year, I am all for the gospel concert, however, why are
we stopping the hometown atmosphere in DeFuniak Springs?
Each year I looked forward, as well as my family, to attend.
the Hometown Christmas, the Chautauqua Festival, the
Fourth of July events, and other family-building events in
odr county, then it started to change.
The Hometown Christmas moved from Baldwin Avenue to
the lakeyard to the fair grounds. Then the Chautauqua
Festival started to gel<,boring and hardly any talent coming
in. The Fourth of July just feel by the waste side. What
happened?
Why do we small town folks let the world pass us by, then
change our own world within? Don't get me wrong, I believe
in progress. We need more business to come into our com-
munity and help us be as productive as the other communi-
ties surrounding us. However, we can have both; we can
have the growth and the small-town atmosphere that we
learned to love. Yes, growth is important for our future, but
in other communities they still have the hometown feelings
and the growth.
:In a small town in South Carolina, the town has grown
into a city. Goose Creek is the city that I am speaking of;
they still have the small-town celebrations of events that
have happened since the pre-Civil War days. They have
grown into a well-developed city with business and growth,
but they still have their hometown charm about them. They
did not forget where they came from.
If this city can do it, why not DeFuniak Springs? If I am
the only one that feels this way, so be it, but I have a good
feeling that there are others out there that feel the same
way.

signage..." and our "crusade to limit the height of every build-
ing in the county."
Well, thank you, newspaper writer, for sharing that sage
bit of wisdom. There is one thing you should know, how-
ever. The people of Walton County may not agree about
much, but one thing that almost everyone here agrees on is
that we do not want south Walton to look anything at all
like your coastal community.
In fact, Walton County government has gone out of its
way, with the support of a majority of its citizens, to ensure
that this does not happen by putting in place those very
same guidelines and regulations that seem to so vex the
anonymous writer.
Ironically, it appears that the newspaper does not think
that everything in Walton County is backward or unenlight-
ened. It seems that they have just unveiled a brand new
feature highlighting Nascar racing news.. .something the De-
Funiak Springs Herald and Beach Breeze have been carry-
ing for months. Check out Lap By Lap on page 12B.
Regarding their "new" feature, I can only send our most
heartfelt thanks. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.



Editor,
God and the soldier, all men adore in time of trouble and
no more.
For when war is over and all things righted, God is ne-
glected and the soldier slighted.
Don't let President Bush cut spending on V.A. hospitals
and clinics. He even wants to close some of these hospitals,
because alot of them are not being used. The problem is
that when the soldiers come home from Iraq and need hos-
pital care, the V.A. will need to build new hospitals.
Don't turn your back on the veterans, Mr. Bush we need a
V.A. hospital in Pensacola now.

Editor:
This is leadership? It doesn't seem like the type of Com-
prehensive plan changes requested and supported by most
of our commissioners are in our best interest. Certainly these
changes do not seem to consider our safety or welfare. Some
of these proposed changes are about allowing development
and greater density in the most susceptible areas of our com-
munity. They are about developing closer to wetlands. They
,.oeabout changing'the rules so that, littiley lit t e, ou Jtm-
munity becomes more like the larger cities to our east and
to our west. The requested changes are about making nimoey;'
about development in the name of property rights.
With regard to the county's proposed changes to the comp
plan, our guiding documents, which were submitted to the
state Department of Community Affairs, Commissioner
Jones is quoted as saying, "Part of the process is to get com-
ments and see what they want." Please, Commissioner
Jones, the state is clear that they want populations to be
directed away from coastal high hazard areas. "It's not un-
usual to require changes. This starts a dialog with DCA. "I
expected them (DCA) to have serious objections." This .is
leadership? Is this looking out for the best interest of the
community, or is it about looking out for developers? How is
presenting something that you know is going to create seri-
ous objections in our best interest?
Commissioner Brannon said, "The important thing to re-
alize is that it is a transmitted document to DCA. It is not
the end all-be all, it just gets us started." Why not start
with changes that do not fly in the face of the welfare of the
community? This entire process was advertised as some-
thing to remove inconsistencies between the comp plan and
land development code. Brannon has also said, "People move
to Florida understanding the risk." Again he does not seem
concerned with the welfare of the community. This is the
person that ran for office expressing concern for the envi-
ronment. Now his priority seems to be making changes to
allow greater density. He says it's not a function of county
government to tell residents where they can build. Forget a
sense of community; it's every man for himself.
DCA noted, "The reasons for the changes (the county re-
quested) were not well explained and the likely impacts-not
assessed." DCA noted state officials have "serious concerns"
about the requests the county made.
Commissioner's, Jones, Cuchens and Pridgen voted to pass
the changes to the comp plan on to DCA. Commissioner
Brannon clearly supports these requested changes. Don't
we already have enough density? Don't we have enough traf-
fic congestion, enough parking problems, enough stormwater
issues and enough hurricane evacuation concerns? All but
Commissioner Meadows continue to act in a fashion that
increases density and makes all of these problems more se-
vere.
Florida DOT recommended the county provide a trans-
portation analysis illustrating the impact of deleting den-
sity restrictions. NW Florida Water Management said they
are concerned about how the changes would impact wet-
land resources and functions and water quality. Florida DEP
has serious concerns about the proposed amendments that
appear to weaken our existing resource protection policies.
Are these commissioners taking us in the direction we want
to go?
And the commissioners say what they submitted was
merely a start in an ongoing process? The commissioners
advertised these changes improperly; for the most part they
ignored community input and at one point even shut down
community suggestions. They have ignored our vegetation
preservation requirements, they enable developers to get
around concurrency guidelines and they are failing to pro-
tect our communities with any meaningful compatibility
standards. Despite what the commissioners would have you
believe, there is no limit to the number of stories a building
may have. There is no limit on how tall a structure may be.
One result of all of this is increased density.
Let's do the right thing and follow the reviewing organi-
zations suggestions and submit a proposal to DCA that helps
protect the character of our community. And let's have some
long- range planning. Let's have some leadership.

More than 11,000 Florida high school and middle school
students would lose their college opportunity programs and
nearly millionn in funding would be lost under the Bush
administration's proposed 2006 budget. The president's bud-
get calls for elimination of two popular and successful col-
lege access programs Upward Bound and Talent Search.
These programs help low-income students become the first
in their families to attend college. Participation in these
programs is based on family income.
"These students need mentoring and encouragement in'
preparing for and applying to college because their families
have so few resources," said Dr. Arnold L. Mitchem, presi-
dent of the Council for Opportunity in Education. "Instead,
their life-lines to college will be cut off if Congress lets this
proposal stand."
Upward Bound and Talent Search serve more than
455,000 high school and middle school students and veter-
ans across the country. Millions of students have gone on to
college and become productive, tax-paying citizens after com-
pleting these programs during the nearly 40 years of opera-
tion.
"We hope that influential members of Congress,. includ-
ing Representatives C. W. Bill Young, Dave Weldon, Ander
Crenshaw and Allen Boyd, (all members of the House Ap-
propriations Committee) will decide that Upward Bound and
Talent Search should be preserved because they are the
bridges to educational opportunity for thousandsof first
generation low-income Florida students," said Mitchem.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MARCH 3, 2005


Professor speaks on death penalty


By BRUCE COLLIER
Florida State University
law Professor Talbot "Sandy"
*D'Alemberte spoke on the
subject of the death penalty
in America and the world at
large last Saturday at First
Presbyterian Church in De-
Funiak Springs.
The lecture was part of the
Keynote Speeches series of-
fered at the 2004
Chautauqua Assembly.
D'Alemberte has a distin-
guished background in law
'and public service. Currently
a professor of law at FSU, he
also served as dean of the law
school from 1984 to 1989, and
as President Emeritus of
FSU from 1993 to 2003.
From 1991 to 1992,
D'Alemberte was president of
the American Bar Associa-
tion.
: The title of the lecture was
"'The Death Penalty: U.S.
Aloofness From Interna-
tional Human Rights
Norms."
D'Alemberte prefaced his
lecture vy st atin g his opposi-
tion to the death penalty. The
lecture :slf,: however, was
more of a review of recent
movements here and over-
seas to include a debate on
capital punishment in the
continuing worldwide debate
over human rights.
D'Alemberte began with
some figures. In the U.S., 38
states currently have a
death penalty statute. Four
of those 38 states have not
used it. In some states,
courts have found the state
death penalty statute to be
unconstitutional, but the
state legislatures have not
formally taken the laws off
the statute books.
' Recently, the North Caro-
lina state senate came within
a single vote of declaring a
mnoratorium on capital pun-
ishment in the state.


There are currently 3,487
persons on death row in the
U.S., but according to
D'Alemberte, the number of
executions carried out every
year is dwindling.
He also cited surveys find-
ing an increase in the num-
ber of Americans who would
support abolition of capital
punishment, if they could be
assured that life sentences
were indeed life sentences
without possibility of release.
D'Alemberte also listed a
number of countries which,
along with U.S., still have
capital punishment: China,
Iraq, Iran, Nigeria, Saudi
Arabia, Pakistan, and Af-
ghanistan.
"This is not a neighborhood
we should be comfortable in,"
said D'Alemberte.
The international concern
over human rights in the
wake of World War II led in
1948 to a Universal Declara-
tion of Human Rights. Vari-
ous nations followed this
with binding human rights
treaties. In 1992, the U.S.
ratified the International
Covenant of Human Rights,
reserving its right to main-
tain capital punishment.
According to D'Alemberte,
a perception exists in some
places abroad that the U.S.
is lagging behind in human
rights leadership.
The Council of Europe,
which has a European Cov-
enant of Human Rights, con-
ditions a nation's member-
ship in the Council upon its
abolition of capital punish-
ment. Nations such as Tur-
key, the former U.S.S.R.
countries, and former Soviet
bloc nations such as Roma-
nia have been given a strong
economic motivation to abol-
ish their own death penalty
systems.
The European community
recently commissioned a


study of the administration
of capital punishment in the
U.S.
If the results of that study
show that the death penalty
system in America is what
some have called "quirky,
random, and unacceptable,"
D'Alemberte predicts that.
the non-death penalty na-


tions of the world may try to
exercise economic influence
on the United States in an
effort to expedite abolition of
the death penalty in
America. This could extend
to the conditioning of trade
relations with the U.S. on
whether or not we continue
to impose a death penalty.
A discussion followed

D'Alemberte's lecture. Many
of the audience had ques-
tions about the relationship
between the federal and state
governments' power to im-
pose the death penalty.


One audience member, a
retired Oregon prosecutor
and judge, stated that he
would be willing to keep me
death penalty, but only if the
system could be "perfected."


PDL man killed in accident


By BRUCE COLLIER
A 19-year-old DeFuniak
man was killed in an automo-
bile accident in Freeport on
the afternoon of February 2.1.
Florida Highway Patrol
investigator R.C. Harlan re-
ports that Robert Dean
Bryan, whose address is 7059
Hwy 81 in Ponce de Leon,
was -traveling eastbound on
Sweetwater Lane. He at-
tempted to make a left turn
onto U.S. 331.
A second vehicle, driven by
24-year-old Peter A. Behety,
whose address is 3672 Union
Hill Road in Bonifay, was
traveling south on 331. In the
vehicle with Behety was a


passenger, 42-year-old Jose
Noris, whose address is 701
Rangeline Street in Bonifay.
Bryan turned onto 331
into the path of Behety's ve-
hicle. Behety's vehicle struck
Bryan's on the left side.
Bryan's vehicle overturned,
sliding upside down off the
east side of 331. Behety's ve-
hicle slid off the east side and
came to rest against Bryan's.
Bryan died of his injuries.
Behety and Noris suffered
minor injuries.
No alcohol appears to have
been involved. The report in-
dicates that none of the three
men were wearing seatbelts.

Jesse Guardado sentenced on non-capital charges


By BRUCE COLLIER

Jesse Guardado pled
guilty last fall to a number
of criminal charges, includ-


ing the first degree murder
of Jackie Malone. On Febru-
ary 17, Guardado was sen-
tenced on his non-capital
charges. Sentencing took


place at Walton County
Courthouse in DeFuniak
Springs.
Following an examination
of his record and questioning
by the court, Guardado was
adjudicated to be a violent ca-
reer criminal and a habitual
violent felony offender.
The docket reflects that, in
addition to the foregoing
charges, Guardado pled to
one count of dealing in sto-


len property, two counts of
possession of a firearm or
concealed weapon by a felon,
and attempted armed rob-
bery with a deadly weapon.
The docket shows that the
court sentenced Guardado to
30 years on the stolen prop-
erty charge, 40 years on each
count of possession of fire-
arm or weapon, and 40 years
on the attempted armed rob-
bery.


The terms are to run con-
secutively, and Guardado
must serve a minimum of 30
of each 40-year sentence.
The date for the sentencing
hearing on the Malone mur-


der count was set for May 19.
At that time, it will be de-
cided whether Guardado will
receive a sentence of death or
of life in prison.

EMS/Public

Information

holds CPR classes


Waltdh County EMS and
Public Information spon-
sored free CPR classes for
employees of the board and
other constitutional officers.
Classes were held on Thurs-
day, Feb. 24 at the EOC and
37 county employees learned
CPR.
Participants learned the
"ABC's of CPR, and were
given a demonstration of an
automatic external defibril-
lator. The course included'
CPR instruction and hands
on experience by the partici-
pants. Class members took
a written exam and will re-
ceive CPR certification.
EMS Manager Matt
Douglass told the partici-


pants that cardiac arrest
kills over 700 people daily in
the United States. Walton
County EMS runs five ambu-
lances daily, but having
someone on the scene who
can administer CPR until
emergency personnel arrive
can make the difference be-
tween life and death, he said.
County Administrator
Ronnie Bell feels that all
county employees should
learn CPR and first-aid and
would like to include the
school board and city person-
nel in the training sessions
as well.

mation at 892-8530.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MARCH 3, 2005


DECISION

Bruce Bowman of Clark,
Partington, Hart, Larry,
Bond & Stackhouse of
Pensacola.
The proceedings com-
menced on February 22 with
an evidentiary-motion in
limine. Such "threshold"
motions are held before ei-
ther party presents its case.
Nacoochee attempted to ex-
clude evidence of an unre-
lated transaction in which
Eagle Land Group failed to
make an earnest money de-
posit at the time required by
the contract. Nacoochee ar-
gued that the evidence was
irrelevant to the present
case.
Pickett's attorneys argued
relevance on the ground that
Eagle likewise failed to make
an earnest money deposit
with Pickett. The court
agreed to admit the evi-
dence.
: Following opening state-
inents by both sides,
.Nacoochee presented its
ease, inclu :n Jiive and vid-
eotaped testimony of four
witnesses.
The first witness was Ron
Reeser, president of.Eagle
Land Group. Reeser.con-
firmed that the land was to
be used for development pur-
poses, and testified that
Eagle had given sums of
money to Pickett's Florida
Chautauqua Center.
On the question of the un-
paid EMD, Reeser said that
he withheld the money at first
because of a defect in the sig-
nature line on the contract.
Reeser feared that the escrow
agent, Chicago Title, would
not accept such a contract.
Reeser added that he thought
a check had been cut, but
that he had left the matter to
an assistant.
Direct and cross-examina-
tion revealed that Reeser's
assumption was that Eagle
was to pay only for "usable"
land. He believed that the
purchase price would be ad-
Sjusted to reflect the existence,
of 776.86 acres of wetland'
identified by a wetlands sur-
vey.
The original price of $3.6
million was calculated by
multiplying the 1398.28
acres by $2,600, the price per
acre. The $1,716,683.50 pur-
chase price ultimately offered
by Nacoochee was calculated
by multiplying 660.263 "us-
able" acres by $2,600.
Even so, Reeser. admitted
that Eagle's request for an-
nexation was for the entire
property, and that wetlands
could be an "asset" in the
planned Pickett's Crossing


From Front

Development.
Reeser also admitted that
he had not notified Pickett of
the non-deposit of the EMD,
but had been "in the process"
of doing it. Reeser also spoke
of another offer he made to
purchase the property at the
original price, with a part-
cash, part-owner financing
arrangement.
Nacoochee president John
F. Smithgall testified next.
Smithgall testified that he
originally believed that the
EMDs were not due until
April of 2004. The contract
states that they were due in
February and August of
2002.
Pickett's attorney ques-
tioned Smithgall about a fi-
nancial statement for
Nacoochee, requested by
Pickett, showing only
$77,000 in cash in December.
of 2004. Smithgall replied
that Nacoochee's assets var-
ied, and that the corporation
had access to various fund-
ing sources sufficient to pur-
chase the property.
Nacoochee ultimately ten-
dered earnest money total-
ling $120,000 in May and
July of 2004, although
$100,000 of it was deposited
into a Chicago Title escrow
account that did not include
Pickett as a party. Smithgall
said he believed that Pickett
was "belligerent" at this
point and would not have co-
operated in setting up a
three-party escrow account.
The plaintiff next pre-
sented a videotaped deposi-
tion of Pickett, made last
November. Pickett stated
that there have been several
deals in the past involving
this property, and that the
wetlands are a concern.
She said that her under-
standing of the "adjustment"
paragraph of the contract re-
ferred to a price change
based on the total actual
number of acres, not on a dif-
ferentiation between wetland
and upland. The survey
,made showed that the total
number of acres is 1402.5.

Pickett emphasized that
she never agreed to the re-
duced price of $1.7 million.
The videotaped deposition
of Mary Ann Watkins com-
pleted the plaintiff's case in
thief. Watkins is a legal as-
sistant for William Linne,
Pickett's attorney for the sale
of her property.
Watkins testified that she
became aware that the
EMDs had not been depos-
ited when Nacoochee offered
to buy the property for $1.7


Joint Pain Seminar set

million. She added that nei-
ther Pickett not Linne
wanted to sell the property at
that price.
Questioned about the pos-
sible existence of another
prospective purchaser offer-
ing $6 million, Watkins said
she did not recall hearing
anyone say that the prop-
erty was on the market
again.
The defense put on two wit-
nesses. Nancy Lee, escrow
administrator for Chicago
Title's Georgia office,'testi-
fled via videotaped deposi-
tion.
Lee confirmed that no
EMDs were made on the
propeerty prior to May of
2004. She confirmed that
Pickett was not made a party
to the escrow account set up
by Nacoochee, and that she
has no claim or right of de-
mand on the funds.
Smithgall added explicit lan-
guage that there was "no
other party" to the escrow
agreement.
Lee also testified as to
Eagle's non-deposit of funds
in an unrelated real property
transaction. This was the
evidence that Nacoochee
sought to exclude prior to
trial.
On cross-examination, Lee
testified that Chicago Title
deposited a $100,000 EMD
from Nacoochee on May 19,
2004, and an additional
$20,000 on July 23, 2004, but
that in both cases, the checks
may actually have been re-
ceived earlier.
The final defense witness
was attorney William Linne,
who represented Pickett in
the contract, and who repre-
sents her interests in other
areas.
On direct examination,
Linne stated that Eagle
never said it did not intend
to pay for wetlands. Linne
shared Pickett's interpreta-
tion of the adjustment p dra-
graph as referring to the to-
tal acreage, not to exclusion
of wetlands from the price.
Upon learning that no
EMD had been made, Linne
said he became "suspicious,"
adding that Reeser gave him
repeated assurances that it
had been deposited.
This suspicion, he said,
coupled with Nacoochee's fi-
nancial statement and what
Linne perceived to be a gen-
eral delay in the process, led
him and Pickett to conclude
that they did not want to
proceed to closing, including
any deal involving owner fi-
nancing.
On cross-examination,
Linne testified as to certain
billing records kept by his of-
fice. Such documents memo-
rialize conferences, e-mails,
and telephone calls made by
attorneys and clients on spe-
cific cases. They are used to
keep track of hours spent on
cases for billing purposes,
and to provide dates .when
certain actions were taken.
In an occasionally sharp
exchange between Linne and
Nacoochee's lawyer Cary
Ichter, Linne denied that the
records indicated any intent
upon the part of him or
Pickett to "set up" Nacoochee
or "kill the contract."
Responding to Ichter's sug-
gestion that they only
wanted to keep Nacoochee
"on the line" until they could
find a better deal, Linne re-


plied that Reeser hadn't even
informed Pickett of the as-
signment to Nacoochee until
May of 2004.
Nor, added Linne, were
they simply trying to obtain
for free the surveys and due
diligence documents pre-
pared by Eagle and
Nacoochee. They wanted to
check up on Reeser's due
diligence, which Linne con-
sidered less than diligent.
Each party rested its case
and made closing arguments
on the afternoon of February
24. Several boxes of docu-
ments and exhibits were
marked and submitted to the
court.
Both plaintiff and defen-
dant submitted pleadings
entitled "Proposed Findings
of Fact and Conclusions of
Law. Such pleadings are
submitted to assist the court
in clarifying issues and ap-
plying the relevant law to
what each side believes to be
the facts of the case. Each
pleading includes an order
for the relief requested.
Nacoochee is asking the
court to order specific perfor-
mance of the contract at the
$1.7 million purchase price,
with Nacoochee waiving the
contingency for zoning and
land disturbance permits.
Alternatively, Nacoochee
has asked for a declaratory
judgment that the contract is
enforceable at the original


price of $3.6 million, upon
Nacoochee's receiving final
zoning and development per-
mits,
Pickett has asked the court
to find that a material breach
of the contract was made
upon the purchaser's failure
to timely make the EMDs,
and to cancel the contract.
Pickett has asked the court
to award her damages in the
amount of the $120,000 held
in escrow, free "copies of sur-
veys, investigations, studies
and/or tests" made on the

property, and any damages:'
that she may have incurred,:
by reason of the lis pendens :
filed by Nacoochee on the;;
property.
Both parties have asked the ,:
court to award them cost s;,
and attorney fees. -
Judge Stone did not indi-
cate when he would render;'
his decision. Prior to closing
arguments, the judge com-7'
mended attorneys on both:,
sides for their diligence in-,
preparing documents and*'
exhibits for the court.

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 Coun, Walton County Courthouse, 571 U.S. Highway 90.
DeFuniak Springs, Florida, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. exceptorn..-
weekends and holidays. .. -. .-.-- --- .-- V
The information presented at this hearing will bemused to afford the Petitioner, land-
owners, any affected units of local government, and the general public, a fair and ade-

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

that's not the case. "For so
long, education has been a!
two-legged stool. Teachers
teach and students learn.
But there's something miss-
ing, the third leg is the par-
enits. The idea was to give the
parents the ammunition they
need to help their children.
Ironically, Hughes said at-
tendance at the meetings,
was very low. "I was very dis-
appointed. It was very frus-
trating."
Despite the low turnout,:
Hughes said that, because of
their proactive approach
with the entire student body
and the two subgroups in
particular, he is expecting:
great gains.
Unfortunately, the state
has raised the required per-,
centage rates from 31 to 48
in reading and up to 53 per-:
cent in math.
Hughes said that although'
lawmakers will say. they'
have simply raised the bar
for better education, he sus-'
pects that the real reason for'
the huge leap is so that'they
will not have to pay out as'-
much money in A+ school im-
provement funds, promised
to schools that improve their
overall grade.

Commissioner Larry Jones,
said, "We need to be think-'
ing about what we're going to
do next. For as, long as I've
been on the board, we've:
never had a specific plan as
to what we would do and
what would follow after that,
and after that, and so on.
"After the constitutional
officers come back to the'
courthouse, we're going to be
able to move other depart-
ment heads closer," he'said.
"I'd like to see county
administrator's office in the.
annex, along with finance,!
and with all the other build-

spawned by the letters and
meetings, Hughes said, "my
concern, totally and solely,
was 'What am I going to do
about these subgroups?' For
those who have taken this
the wrong way, they have
made an issue out of what
color I am. I am the princi-
pal and my students and fac-
ulty are depending on me and
I want to do everything I can
to make sure there are no
barriers, no blockades that
are going to hold WMS,
black, white, blue or green,
back from being anA school."
Walton School Superinten-
dent Carleen Anderson said,.
"The intentions of Walton'
Middle School were admi-
rable in their efforts to reach
the subgroups identified by
the state. The letter was not
as clearly written regarding
why certain groups were in
need of more help.

"I applaud Principal
Hughes and I apologize for
any misunderstanding over
the creative efforts the school
was tiryi{g1? Subgroups are
part of FCAT and the state
reports help us in identifying
our weaknesses for the bet-
terment of all our schools,"

County Administrator
Ronnie Bell said, "It's been a

started to consider a court-
house addition in 1990. Fif-
teen years later, it will soon
be a reality.

"By being able to use the
old jail and admin' buildings
for records storage, the
Clerk's office is going to re-

more room in the Public
Defender's office. This is re-

He said the new addition
will match the existing court-
house in terms of style and

Open Door Club welcomes DFS Women's Club


By SALLY ORLOSKY
The Welcome Mat for the
DeFuniak Women's Club was
out at the Open Door Com-
munity Club's Feb. 10 meet-
ing at the Crossroads Best
Western Hotel in DeFuniak
Springs. The DeFuniak
Women's Club was invited to
speak to the Open Door mem-
bers regarding their history,
social activities, fund-raising
activities, membership and
community service projects.
President Carleita Levy
introduced the keynote
speakers, Rickie Bovee and
Bea Rutland of the DeFuniak
Springs Women's Club.
Bovee began with the his-
tory of the club saying the
DeFuniak Women's Club was
founded in 1915 and is the
oldest established organiza-
tion in Walton County. The
club began as an organiza-
tion to rid the county of all of
the wild and domestic ani-
mals that wandered the
lakeyard and the DeFuniak
downtown area without any


sort of control by their own-
ers. The club house, which
still is on Sixth Street in De-
Funiak Springs, was built in
1929 at a cost of $15. It was
originally a two-story build-
ing, but years later, the sec-
ond story was removed.
The early organization had
a traveling nurse that tended
to the health issues of the
children in the local schools.
Members of the club would
take turns making a pot of
soup each day to take to the
school for those children that
could not afford to bring their
lunch to school from home.
The DeFuniak Women's
Club is busy to this day giv-
ing back to the community in
the guise of the Halloween
Happenings for the children,
the Christmas Parade and
giving Christmas presents to
the developmentally disabled
adults in the community.
One project that the,
Women's Club is particularly
proud of is also one of the
area's best kept secrets.


Local woman's

-manuscript published


The Presidential Medal of
Freedom with Distinction
nomination of a local nuclear
physicist, the late Dr. Ed-
ward E. O'Donnell, received
a big boost recently when his
daughter, Dari Bradley, was
informed her manuscript,
The Politics of Angels, was
going to be published as a
book.
Dari, a long time Walton
County, Florida resident,
penned the work hoping to
enlist support for her father's
nomination. Dr. O'Donnell
was an instrumental physi-
cist in developing the Trident
Missile Defense systems.
Dr. O'Donnell served as di-
- rector of the (SAIC' Trident
Missile Program for the
United-States Navy over- the
Course of nine different presi-
dential administrations over


a span of nearly forty years.
Nomination letters have
been submitted to President
Bush by former Walton
County Commissioner Lane
Rees, Congressman Jeff
Miller, State Representative
Don Brown, State Senators
Charlie Clary and Durell
Peaden. U.S. Senator Bill
Nelson and former Senator
Bob Graham are both sup-
porting Dr. O'Donnell's nomi-
nation. Senator Kay Bailey
Hutchison (TX) also sent a
letter to President Bush.

Bradley's book was re-
leased by the publisher on
Presidents' Day, Monday,
Feb. 21. The book is currently
available for order from
BarnesandNoble.com. The
cover and description can b e
viewed on the website.


Relay for Life



fundraiser set


Margie Gillis, captain of
.the "Friends for Life" team
announces an interactive
:fundraiser that promises to
;be fun for the entire family.
: The event will take place on
Saturday, March 12, at
Green Acres Park, located at
295 Juniper Lake Road. Take
'Walton road to Juniper lake
Road and look for signs. The
'team will be hosting a
cakewalk, dunking booth,
dart-throw, face painting,
water balloons and several


other games.
The festivities will start at
10 a.m. and will continue
throughout the day. The Re-
lay for Life team wil also.be
serving hot-dogs, chili, ham-
burgers, and banana splits.
Come on out, bring the en-
tire family, and support your
community in the fight

tact Co-captain Diane
Ellenberg at 305-2016 or
685-4356.


Unfortunately, Walton
County has a high percent of
accident and rape victims.
Accident victims often have
to have their clothing cut off
in order for medical person-
nel to tend to their injuries
and rape victim's clothing is
kept as evidence of the crime
and is used to assist law en-
forcement officers to solve the
crime. These victims then
have no clothing for the hos-
pital or to wear home. The
DeFuniak Women's Club
provide clothing for these un-
fortunate people.
Bovee continued by say-
ing that the club has an open
membership policy and that
they have two meetings per
month-both on the same day.
The club is currently com-
piling a book of the "Women
of Walton County" because
everyday women are the
'backbone of the community.'
Anyone may submit a biog-
raphy of a woman to the club
for inclusion in the book. The
honoree does not need to be
a member of the DeFuniak
Women's Club and can be old,
young, living, deceased, na-
tive, transplant, etc. Infor-
mation sheets are available
to anyone and can be picked
up at the club house during
regular meeting times or at
the group's monthly yard
sale.
Their monthly yard sale is
the first Saturday of each
month at 8 a.m. at the De-
Funiak Women's Club on 6th
Street.
There are also tentative
plans for a Victorian Tea to
be held around Mother's Day
weekend in May, 2005.
Other announcements of
upcoming Walton County
events included additional
information on the
Chautauqua Assembly.
For more information, go


to www.florida-chautauqua-
center.org or you may call 1-
850-892-7613. For all events
that have a charge, there will
be a discount for teachers; $5
for those ages 12-18 and free
for those under 12. Many,

Sandra Golden of the Pilot

ness conference sponsored by
the Pilot Club at Freeport
High School Auditorium at 9
a.m. on March 19.
This conference will be
open to the public and there
will be many excellent profes-
sionals that will speak on
topics of traumatic brain in-
jury, dementia, developmen-
tal problems, depression,
chemical dependency,
strokes, seizures and virtu-
ally anything that interferes
with the normal operation of
the human brain.
Registration fee includes
lunch and beverages.
For additional information,
please call Diane Ellenberg
at 892-0565 or 305-2616.
The Open Door Commu-
nity Club recently lost one of
its best assets when the
Dottie Merrifield passed
away on Jan.17. Members
eulogized the wonderful
memories that they have of
Ms. Dottie and voted to pur-
chase a mile marker in the
Relay for Life Event in her
memory.

The Most High


is our habitation
By DR. ROBERT M. JAYE
I The Hebrew people in the wilderness were continually
exposed to change. Whenever the fiery or cloudy pillar, given
them for a guide, stayed in motion, the tents were pitched.
frca nerc n Tomorrow, before the morning sun had risen, the trumpet
aeri can could sound, the ark of the covenant was in motion, and the
a r i i e fiery, cloudy pillar was leading the way through the narrow
H r a ei t defiles of the mountain, up the hillside, or along by the arid
SHeritage el a waste of the wilderness.
They scarcely had time to rest a little before they heard


Rev. lyrone L. roaaus
and the Mt. Nebo Missionary
Baptist Churcht': Otutreachl
Ministry is ;proud to an-
nounce their ."First Annual
African-American Heritage
Exhibit" beginning February
20 from 1-to 3.p.m. and end-
ing March 5,2005, located at
185 N.1lth Street, DeFuniak
Springs, FL.
Historically, this time of
the year, the great contribu-
tions are discussed of George
Washington Carver, Mary


MivcLeod Bethune, BooKer T.
Washington, Harriet
Tubman, Rev. Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr. and many
other African-Americans who
contributed much to the
growth of this country. How-
ever, there are other con-
tributors who are not always
mentioned and some of them
live here in DFS.

the sound of "Away! This is not your rest. You must be on-
ward journeying toward Canaan." They were never long in
one place. Even wells and palm trees could not detain them.
Yet they had an abiding home in God. His cloudy pillar was
their roof-tree, and its flame by night was their household
fire. But they had to go onward from place to place, continu-
ally changing, never having time to settle and say, "Now we
are secure; in this place-we shall dwell." Though they were
always changing, they knew that the Lord had been their
dwelling place throughout all generations.
The believer knows no change with regard to God. He
may be rich today and poor tomorrow. He may be sickly
today and well tomorrow. He may be in happiness today


PAGE 7-B


and tomorrow he may be distressed. Yet there is no change
with regard to his relationship to God through Christ.
We can say if He loved me yesterday, He loves me today.
My unmoving mansion of rest is my blessed Lord. The psalm-
ist said, "Thou hast made the Lord...even the Most High,
thy habitation." We are pilgrims in this world, but at home
in our God. In the earth I wander, but in God I dwell in a
quiet habitation (Psalm 91:9).

Who Is Our
Real Enemy?

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


Two weeks ago. I attended a Minister's Conference
at Asbury Seminary. A pastor shared that he had been
praying for a well-meaning member about opposing his
ministry. He was complaining about how tough they
were making it on him.
Then the Lord spoke, "Because you have interceded
for these person's I have stayed my hand upon them."
He went on to describe how humbled that he felt that
God took his prayers so seriously. My friend God really
is serious about loving and working together for the com-
mon good of lost souls, and unity in the body of believ-
ers.
Our enemy the enemy of every believer in Jesus,
every Christian church, every Christian family has his
way all too often. Not so much because he's so strong,
but because he exploits our tendency to fight each other
and to forget the enemy that threatens us all.
Someone said, "Christians are the only soldiers who
form their firing squads in a circle." Isn't it true! We
shoot at each other so much; wasting our ammunition
that should be aimed only one direction at Satan and
his forces.
Ephesians 6:11-12. Is a clarion call to fight the right
enemy. "Put on the full armor of God so that you can
take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our
struggle is not against flesh and blood."
Let's stop right there. I want you to think of someone
in your family there's conflict with right now. or some-
one in your church or your ministry that's driving you
crazy. Put their name in that verse. ,
"My struggle is not against ."Or fill in the blank
with another Christian group or denomination you don't
agree with. Your struggle is ultimately not against them!
It's "against the rulers, against the authorities,
against the powers of this dark world and against the
spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." The one
to shoot at is the devil.
The one who is trying to drive a wedge between you
and that family member or fellow believer is none other
than the prince of darkness himself.
He wants you to think that they're the problem. He's
the problem! We play right into his hands when we al-
low ourselves to focus on our differences, on our wounded
feelings, on our turf, on our frustrations.
We're doing what Paul calls two chapters earlier giv-
ing "the devil a foothold." My guess is that somewhere
in your life right now, your enemy is trying to divide you
from another believer or believers so he can divide and
conquer. The question is, are you falling for it?
God is calling us to wake up to our common enemy and
to do whatever we have to do to remove the walls and
fight together.
To do as it says in Philippians 1, "to stand firm in one
spirit, contending as one man for the faith of the Gospel
without being frightened in any way by those who op-
pose you. This is a sign to them that they will be de-
stroyed."
We've battled the enemy separately long enough. It's
time we come together to win what we could never win
alone.

In Loving Memory

James Richard Hayes

"Ritchie"
I,-* -' **i '!lfaiaw


Richard had a zest for life that was intoxicating. His
life had great purpose, he knew how to live life fully, while
at the same time, never forgetting what is most impor-
tant, "He is a child of God" Rich left a legacy to all that
knew him; how to enjoy life, not take life too seriously,
and how wonderful to have God, family and friends in his
life.
Our memories are of a very wonderful person that never
met a stranger and was a friend to everyone. If there
was any kindness he could do for anyone, he believed in
doing it now. He left a void that cannot be filled. We
miss him and look forward to our reunion in heaven. We
are thankful for the 39 years, three months and nine
days God loaned him to us.

We love and miss you

point lay-up and adds another two points to the Walton lead
over Florida High.


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves boys
basketball team exploded for
44 second half points as the
Braves recorded only their
second home playoff victory
in the history of the school
with a 67-46 win over Florida
High in the first round of the
FHSAA Class 3A playoffs.
Four Walton players scored
in double figures as the
Braves shook off a sluggish
first half to advance to a sec-
ond round game against
Jacksonville Ribault. Darryl
McGhee scored 17 points
while Ashton Campbell
added 19. Kenny Walker con-
tributed 14 points as a
starter while senior Donovan


Washington added 13 from
off the bench.
The Braves, who struggled
with turnovers in the first
half, pulled away in the
fourth quarter as they
outscored the Seminoles 23-
8 in the final frame. Aubrey
Bodison led Florida High
with 31 points,,but got little
help from the rest of his
teammates.
Walton hit 28-of-53 shots
from the floor to help make
up for 21 turnovers on the
night. The win ups the
Braves record to 22-6 on the
year and moves Walton into
the second round for only the
third time in school history
under the current playoff for-
mat.

Sports news & notes


By PATRICK CASEY
The FHSAA decided last
week to grant the city of Mi-
ami the host site for the state
football championship games
for the next two years. Dol-
phins Stadium will host some
of the games while Florida
International University will
play host to the smaller clas-
sifications' games. North-
west Florida teams will need
a good travel agent.
Blountstown, which made
the championship game last
year, will have a long trip to
make if they return next
year. Apparently the popu-
lation density in the south-
ern part of the state helped
to win officials in Gainesville
over, as well as the likelihood
that a few Miami teams in
the championship games
would boost attendance and
payola.

The OWC men's basketball
team hit the skids last week
and finished second in the
Panhandle Conference. That
is good enough for a trip to
the state tournament in
Marianna at Chipola on


March 9th. OWC may run
into Chipola for a fourth time
there, but their last two
games makes it unlikely they
will beat them. The Raiders
have been suffering from ice
cold shooting and you don't
win games in March that
way.
Looking ahead to girls bas-
ketball next season, avoid
Paxton and Ponce deLeon.
The Bobcats have everyone
coming back and the Pirates
lose only senior Nikole
Hamilton. Paxton will domi-
nate their district again,
while PDL will have only
Cottondale as a chief rival.
Walton will still have to deal
with Pensacola Catholic's
girls while South Walton is
quicky improving. Freeport
has two freshman that
played well late in the sea-
son in Nicole Dykes and
Shereka Bramlet, but will
now have Jay in their dis-
trict, though the Royals will
be hit hard by graduation..
All in all, next year should be
a good basketball season for
area girls' teams if the
squads all remain intact.

State of Emergency at the EOC


By TIANA LARSEN
"There is obviously some-
thing going on here," said
Commissioner Cindy Mead-
ows, after listening to three
Emergency Operations Cen-
ter (EOC) 911 dispatchers
who spoke to the Walton
County Commission (BCC)
at their Feb. 22 meeting.
All three dispatchers ex-
pressed the opinion that the
issues at the EOC are a mat-
ter of public safety and all
three called on the BCC to
investigate the situation. In
addition, all three described
a hostile work environment
and retaliation against em-
ployees who speak out.
"The lack of training will
cause liabilities," said Mel-
issa Olswick, who resigned
her position last December.
Olswick said training takes
six months, several certifica-
tions are required and not all,
personnel are certified.
In addition, "Women with
children are treated terribly,"
she charged. Olswick said
she was ordered to work a. 12-
hour shift, without being
given 24 hours notice, or be
fired. She could not, she said,
.. find a babysitter for her 5-
year old diabetic daughter on
such short notice.
"EOC and Human Re-
sources have been aware of
retaliation for the last two


years," she said, calling on
the BCC to "do a proper in-
vestigation."'
Angelic Austin, who was on
duty the night the AirHeartl
helicopter crashed into
Choctawhatchee Bay, told
the BCC, "There is an imme-
diate need to investigate
emergency services."
AirHeartI went down in
the bay in the early hours of
Oct. 20. Shortly after takeoff
from the hangar in south
Walton, the crew radioed the
EOC that they were turning
back, due to weather. Thun-
derstorms were reported over
the bay at the time.
The medical helicopter was
not reported missing until
the morning flight crew re-
ported for work several hours
later and found the hangar
empty.
In December, after an in-
ternal investigation, dis-
patcher Richard Grippo was
dismissed. According, to
newspaper reports, Austin,
who was also on duty that
night, had left the room dur-
ing the period of time when
Grippo should have verified
thatAirHeartl had returned
to its base.
"The AirHeart crash
turned my Iworld upside
down, "Austin told the BCC.
"I am the one who went to the
bathroom that night," she


said. Austin said another
EOC employee never prop-
erly trained the dispatcher
who lost the helicopter, but
was promoted anyway.
"I will be speaking to the
National Transportation
Safety Board about the
truth," Austin said, adding
that she believes she is being
used as a scapegoat.
Austin also said other em-
ployees offered to give state-
ments in writing to an attor-
ney, but were afraid to come
to the BCC meeting.
Jennifer Tibbs' comments
echoed the others. "People
are not being properly
trained," she said. Tibbs also
alleged she had been retali-
ated against. "Please make
some changes or there will be
more tragedies," she said.
(On Monday, Feb. 28, Tibbs,
who was appealing a poor job
performance review, was dis-
missed from her position.
Further details were not
available at press time.)
County Administrator
Ronnie Bell said he had met
with the three dispatchers
and that Dr. Dan Beeman, a
consultant to the county, had
made some suggestions.
However, Bell thought that it
would be best to bring in an
outside consultant.
A motion by Meadows, sec-
onded by Brannon, to adver-
tise for a specialized consult-
ant was passed 4-0.
Later in the meeting, after


the dispatchers had ldft, Ed
Baltzley, EOC director, spoke
to commissioners. He said
that Austin was not a scape-
goat, and that he wanted her
back at work, but she would
not return his calls. Regard-
ing scheduling, he said the
job is 24/7, and it is not for
everyone.
Additionally, he has: hired
a trainer and made some
other changes, Baltzley said.
When asked how many dis-
patching positions he has,
Baltzley replied that: there
are 14. Two are on leave, and
of the remaining 12, nine are
EMD certified, a require-
ment for taking 911 calls, he
explained.
The DeFuniak Herald ob-
tained an EOC internal
memo dated Dec. 7, 2004. It
states, "I would like to inform
all dispatch personnel that
until further notice, if you are
calling out sick, you must re-
port to the EOC and be sent
home by a supervisor.
"The only exception to this
rule will be if you need im-
mediate medical attention
and go to the hospital. This
is due to the lack of person-
nel to cover the shifts. I un-
derstand that this is an in-
convenience, but at this time
I do not see any other op-
tions."

The workload of develop-
ment applications flowing
through the county's plan-
ning department will be tem-
porarily reduced.
"It will be a tough time for
the planning department,"
said Kelly Finney, planning
manager. Finney briefed the
Walton County Commission-
ers (BCC) on the situation at
their Feb. 22 meeting.
The county has less than
60 days remaining to answer
the Department of Commu-
nity Affairs' (DCA) objections
to a recently submitted pro-
posed comprehensive plan
amendment, she explained.
If the county fails to re-
spond within the time limit,
the proposed amendment
will go straight to an admin-
istrative hearing. "We niust
do something in the 60 days,"
Finney emphasized.
Finney told the BCC that
responding to the objections
is a big project that will re-
quire a lot of staff time. The
problem is, Finney ex-
plained, the department has
limited staff who are already
overloaded with development
applications.
The present workload for
plan reviewers is 20-30 new
submittals per reviewer each
month, and to keep up, staff
is taking work home at night

of her new job as Walton'

Three months into the job,
Meadows says she is "really

Speaking to a well-at-

nin g munity Council meeting on
Feb. 24, Meadows said she
has already been dealing
with a wide variety of issues.
t She was grateful for the
Sim i S help of county staff, who she
complimented as "very good."
The county has about 750
employees, she noted.

she noted.


Illegal parking on the bike
paths emerged as one of at-
tendees' main concerns when
questions were taken.
Apparently, ticketing ve-:`;
hicles for this type of park:
ing is a low priority with lavwr
enforcement, so violators are ,
getting the message that'-:
parking on the bike path itk
OK in practice. Meadows
said that there had been
meetings with the sheriffs
office on the possibility of a
non-uniformed officer to be
paid by the county to ticket
vehicles parked on the bike
path and other illegally
parked vehicles.
Also under discussion is an
ordinance that would require
major development projects
to submit plans for tempo-.,
rary parking during con-
struction, she explained. The
proposed ordinance would
also require areas of the
roadway damaged during,
construction to be repaired,'-
she said. She expects the '
draft ordinance to come be-
fore the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners in April or May.
"All our historical knowl-
edge is gone," Meadows said
when the subject of the many
recent county staff resigna-
tions was brought up.
About 15 staff people have
been lost due to resignations,
she said.
While she says she was not
involved with the departures,
she believes it to be a case of
lack of support of staff people,
and of employees being given
the idea that "the writing is
on the wall" that they will be
asked to leave.
"What happens is they re-
sign," she said.
"There are some major
problems, and I'm not going
to sugar-coat them," Mead,
ows said.
"You need to run the county
like a business...stand be-
hind them," she said of
county employees.

: In the wake of two serious

of U.S. 98 occurring within
days of each other, Cindy
Meadows is calling for some
itimediate action. Others are
of the same opinion.

Ilistrict 5 commissioner, has
volunteered to contact the
state Department of Trans-
portation (DOT) to push for
temporary signals to warn
drivers of two dangerous in-
tersections, CR-395 and CR-
283 on U.S. 98 in south Wal-
ton County.
Meadows' comments came
at the Feb. 22 Walton County
Bbard of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) meeting.
The two accidents, taking
pace on Feb. 16 and Feb. 20,
b6th resulted in injuries to
drivers. They occurred at the
same location where two lo-
cql teenage girls died in a
vehicle accident last.year.
Accidents became frequent
at~the two intersections after
U.S. 98 four-laning was com-
pl.eted early last year, with
increased speed of vehicles
arid complicated intersection
design playing a role. Public
attention resulted in speed
limits bhing reduced td 55
miles per hour in the area of
the two intersections. How-
ever, many vehicles still ex-
ceed that rate of speed.
Traffic lights are in the
works for the two intersec-


tions. They were approved
six months ago, and Walton
County agreed to provide de-
sign and construction and be
reimbursed later when state
monies become available.
However, driver safety re-
mains at risk with the project
still in the planning phase.
Installation is not expected to
take place until Sept. 2005.
Meadows commented that
"eight different turning
movements" take place at the
two intersections. She sug-
gested flashing lights to warn
drivers as they approach the
intersections.


A similar suggestion was
made to the Community
Traffic Safety Team (CTST.)
At their Feb. 23 meeting, a
citizen's suggestion that "sig-
nal ahead" warning lights be
placed at three intersections
in south Walton was placed
on the team's tracking list.
The three intersections are
US98 and US 331, US 98 and
CR-283, and US98 and CR-
395. Several citizens have
commented lately that they
think the lights on the hori-
zontal mast arm type signals
are less visible in the day-
light than the older style,
hanging lights.
The Signals on order for the
two intersections mentioned
above tvill be the horizontal
mast arm style.
The citizen's request ex-
presses concern that acci-

"We've been called' pothole
city,' said Beach Highlands
homeowner Don Boyce.
Boyce voiced his approval
for Walton County's plan to
begin paving six roads in the
Beach Highlands subdivision
"in-house" with county crews.
The decision took place at the
Feb. 22 Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) meeting.
"It's bad, we've been wait-
ing a long time," Boyce
added, noting that the sub-
division roads have been on,
the county paving list for,
over six years. In addition to
Boyce, 20 or so other Beach
Highlands homeowners were
present to push for a go-
ahead on the paving.
Before finalizing plans to
pave the subdivision roads,
Walton County had held an
informational meeting for,
property owners and resi-
dents. Then a "walk-around",
meeting with county officials;
and consultants was held, in,
which dozens of residents.
participated.
Some residents adamantly
opposed paving the heavily
wooded subdivision roads'
due to the clearing of the
county right-of-way that is to:
accompany the paving work.
However, in a mail survey of
subdivision residents, eighty
percent were in favor of pav-,
' ing.
The county had intended to
bid out the project, which is
to consist of 1.75 miles of
roadway on Hilltop Drive,!
North Bishop Road, Crescent
Road, Dune Drive, Baird:
Road, and Sunrise Circle.
However, at the Feb. 22'
meeting,Walton County Pub-
lic Works Director Russ
Barry reported that county
crews could accomplish the'
work at a cost savings of over
$850,000.
The low bid for the project
by a contractor was approxi-

Barry recommended that
the commissioners reject the
contractor bids and "substi-
tute this Beach Highlands
paving project into our in-
house project list for comple-
tion this year."
The other part of Barry's
recommendation was to pre-;


dents caused by drivers run-
ning the red lights may con-
tinue at the two problem in-
tersections after the new sig-
nals are installed.
Matt Douglass, chair of the
CTST, will contact DOT for
further information on the
feasibility of the request.
The CTST also decided to
proceed with a program to
place enforcement lights on
the signals at intersections
where there is a history of red
light violation. The white
lights would come on auto-
matically with the red light,
and allow a law enforcement
officer to see from a distance
if the light is really red.
The enforcement lights
help officers defend. the
charges of running a red light
in court.
At the Feb. 22 BCC meet-
ing, County Administrator
Ronnie Bell noted that right
after the speed limit on that
section of U.S. 98 was
changed to 55 miles per hour,
DOT had placed message
boards around the intersec-
tions to call attention to the
reduced speed limit. The
boards had to be removed in
preparation for Hurricane
Ivan in mid-September, he
said.
Bell said he would ask for
the message boards to be re-
placed.
The commissioners also
discussed setting up a meet-
ing with DOT officials to dis-
cuss traffic safety.


pare the C.J. Laird Road and
North Long Road paving
projects for bidding out to
contract.
These projects had previ-
ously been envisioned as in-
house paving work. Bidding
out the latter projects is ex-
pected to result in some de-
lay, but they are still sched-
uled for completion this year,
Barry said. Both these roads
are cleared and paving de-
sign for them is completed,
he explained.
Contacted by phone on
Feb. 25, Cliff Knauer of
Preble-Rish, a consultant on
the Beach Highlands project,
said he had visited each
home in the project area and
spoken with neighbors about
trees located "right on the
line" of the right-of-way.
Knauer said efforts will be
made to save as many of
these trees that homeowners
want to keep as possible. He
added that he plans to clearly
identify the boundaries of the
project before construction
starts.
The vote to have county
crews pave the Beach High-
lands streets carried unani-
mously at the Feb. 22 meet-
ing. Barry predicted that
work could begin there in late
April.

tion on Feb. 22, the commis-
sioners approved Barry's re-
quest to overlay a portion of
J.W. Hollington Road east of
Freeport. The portion in
question had been damaged
by construction equipment
and other trucks over recent
years, Barry explained. The
$94,375 cost will be made
available through a realign-
ment of budgeted public
works funds.
In addition, a three-way
stop and "stop sign ahead"
warning signs were approved
for the Thompson Road/Allen
Loop Road intersection in the
Dune Allen area.
The sign installation will
be accompanied by the re-
moval of rumble strips at the
intersection, which a neigh-
boring resident had repeat-
edly complained were too
noisy, according to Barry.
The county will monitor
the intersection for accidents
after the signs are installed.
If more result due to the re-
moval of the rumble strips,
the strips are to be rein-
stalled.
Plans for traffic signals at
two locations on CR-30A at
Rosemary Beach are pro-
ceeding under protest. A low
bid of $154,492 was approved
for the purchase and instal-
lation of the signals, which


will replace the stop signs
that are currently located at
two intersections in the re-
sort community.
District 4 Commissioner
Ro Cuchens voted against
the expenditure. Cuchens
said he was "still a little
shocked" that the BCC had
voted to put in the lights af-
ter an engineering report
stated that traffic numbers
were not sufficient to justify
leaving the stop signs in
place. The initial decision on
the signals took place in Jan.
2004. Cuchens said it was
"beyond me."
Alan Powdermaker, repre-
senting the Walton County
Taxpayers Association, also
disagreed with taxpayers be-
ing required to pay for traf-
fic signals in "dense develop-
ments."
This was the last BCC
meeting for Barry as Walton
County public works director.
He had been on board since
July 2001. He recently an-
nounced he would be leaving
for the post of road depart-
ment manager for Okaloosa
County.
"Thank you foryour service
to Walton County," District 5
Commissioner Cindy Mead-
ows told Barry.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MARCH 3, 2005


Walton County


Commissioners


set lofty goals


By TIANA LARSEN
Each year before the bud-
get process begins, the Wal-
ton County Commission
(BCC) meets to discuss the
county's strategic plan and
set the priorities for the com-
ing year. The idea is to tie the
budget to the critical issues,
and ask county staff to roll
out the BCC's priorities by
taking direction from the ob-,
jectives and formulating
their own departmental ac-
tion plans.
After a board discussion fa-
cilitated by Dr. Dan Beeman,
consultant to the county, the
BCC reviewed last year's pri-
orities and made some
changes to their general stra-
tegic objectives. In order of
importance, the objectives
agreed upon are:
*Develop a comprehensive
program for paving, bridges
and other infrastructure.
*Promote the development
of more diverse and higher-
paying jobs.
Direct growth away from
natural resource areas.
*Promote equitable recre-
ational facilities for the dif-
ferent areas of the county.
*Improve public relations
and instill confidence in
county government.
Continue to redefine and
refine Walton County govern-
ment services.
In addition to listing the
general objectives, the com-
missioners identified issues,


desired outcomes and driving
forces in the current environ- I
ment.
Some of the critical issues
facing the county were iden-
tified as increasing demands
for recreational services and
facilities, a greater need for
intergovernmental planning
and coordination, a rapidly
increasing population, rap-
idly increasing competition
between development and
natural resources, a greater
need for long range planning,
and an increasing competi-
tion for tax dollars.
Each of the commissioners
contributed to the following
items that went onto this list
of desired outcomes.
eAccommodate the
planned growth with ad-
equate infrastructure.
*Effectively manage water
resources
*Communicate more effec-
tively with all stakeholders
*Acquire more unconven-
tional funding
*Protect natural resource
areas
Protect livable neighbor-
hoods.
*Increase opportunities for
housing that is affordable.
*Provide quality, un-
crowded schools.
Provide an enhanced
sense of community in the
county.
Increase economic devel-
opment and diversity.


Sand to be trucked

in to several dune area


By DOTTY NIST
Walton County has ap-
proved the addition of be-
tween 50,000 and 100,000
cubic yards of beach- quality:
sesn4 stevexs.turm'eroded'
dyne areas along-the.beach.
The sand placement was,
approved at the Feb. 22 Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners' meeting. It
will require specifications
and permits, and bids will be
taken for these projects,
which may cover as much as
three miles of beachfront.
Areas in need of sand place-
ment were identified by Tay-
lor Engineering, a consulting
firm under contract to Wal-
ton County.
'The trucking in of sand will
be accompanied by the con-
tinuation of post-Hurricane
Ivan emergency beach scrap-
ing along 13.5 miles of county
beaches. The 13.5-mile
stretch wvas deemed an emer-
gency area by the Florida
Department of Environmen-
tal Protection and the Fed-
eral Emergency Manage-
ment Administration.
It includes the area west of
Sandestin Resort to the Wal-
ton/Okaloosa County line,
Beach Highlands,' Dune
Allen to Old Florida Beach,
the residential areas of Blue'
Mountain Beach, Gulf Trace,
east of Seaside to eastern
Lake, Camp Creek subdivi-
sion to Sand Cliffs, and part
of Inlet Beach.
Beach scraping began in
Walton County in October
and will continue until April
15. The sand scraped north-
ward from the beach toward
the dunes each time is lim-
ited to one foot of the "hump"
that collects near the gulf due
to wave action.
The scraping program is
expected to take most of the
13.5 miles out of emergency
status
According to Brad Pickel,
beach management director
for the South Walton Tourist
Development Council (TDC,)
most areas are recovering
"quite nicely."
Old Seagrove and Blue
Mountain Beach, for ex-
ample, were "very high risk"
going into the scraping,
Pickel said, but now it is not
anticipated that trucked in
sand will be needed there.
The areas targeted for sand
placement are included
within the 13.5-mile area.
Scraping results here have
not been as successful, al-


though Pickel is hopeful that
some portions will respond in
time.
He said the two of the ar-
eas where sand placement is
planned have roadways lo-
cated 'close to the beach.
"It comes down to infra-
structure, so we can't take a
chance on it," he said.
These two areas are the
1,500 feet west of Miramar
Beach Access and a 2,000-
foot stretch nearby between
the Whale's Tale eatery and
Surfside condominiums.
In the area next in priority
for sand placement, the 5,000
feet between Rosemary
Beach and the eastern Wal-
ton County line, not only do
roadways lie close to the
beach, but many homes do
also.
This is the Inlet Beach
area. Currently an experi-
mental beach recovery
project is underway on a por-
tion of that area. Beach re-
covery results have been
promising, but further up the
beach the dunes are still in
need of sand supplementa-
tion'. Trucking in sand is
planned for May here, when
porous groines being used in
the restoration project will
have been removed.
The other area for which
the need for sand placement
was identified is a 1.5-mile
stretch at Dune Allen. Pickel
said that unlike the other
areas, this one is responding
to beach scraping. He will
continue to monitor that
progress as the other projects
proceed. If trucked-in sand is
still needed here once the
other work is finished, the
size and expense of Walton
County's post-Ivan sand
placement project will be P
doubled.
The cost for scraping is
about $4 a cubic yard. Truck-
ing in sand costs approxi-
mately $30 per cubic yard.
Costs for scraping and for
sand placement are funded
through a combination of
TDC bed tax funds and state
and federal grants.
The TDC is still hopeful for
a late summer/early fall kick-
off on the large-scale beach
renourishment project
planned for an approximate
4.8-mile area on the extreme
west end of Walton County.
The project is currently on
hold due to legal challenges.

Board of adjustments declines


to hear the V-zone challenge


By TIANA LARSEN
The Zoning Board of Ad-
justments (ZBA) declined to
hear a challenge by the South
Walton Community Council
(SWCC) of an administrative
policy decision made by Mike
Lane, former county plan-
ning director.
The challenge concerned
seven lots platted into a sub-
division known as Summer's
Edge, fourth addition. The
case is complicated, so com-
plicated in fact that it took
the board an hour and a half
of discussion before a deci-
sion on whether to even hear
it could be reached.
It is also a timely case,
since it concerns the V-zone,.
which is the portion of the
coastal high hazard area at
risk from storm surge flood-
ing accompanied by waves.
The V-zone policy is one
that is slated for changes in
the county's comprehensive
plan, but the proposed
change, which would remove
the prohibition against creat-
ing new lots located entirely
in the V-zone, is one that has
drawn an objection from the
Department of Community
Affairs; the state agency thath
reviews proposed amend-
ments to local land use plans.
Current comprehensive plan
policy prohibits the creation
of new lots in the V-zone, un-
less "the newly created lot
contains sufficient buildable
area outside of the coastal
high hazard areas for the in-
tended use."
The Walton County Com-
mission (BCC) approved the
plat creating the seven new
lots in September, 2003. At-
torney David Theriaque rep-
resented the developer, BRS
Joint Venture, before the
BCC when the plat was ap-
proved.
According to the minutes of
that meeting, Theriaque told
the BCC that none of the lots
lie entirely in the V-zone, and
that it was up to the BCC to


decide if there is sufficient
buildable area in the lots.
At the beginning of the
ZBA hearing last week,
Theriaque made a motion to
dismiss on the grounds that
the ZBA did' not have juris-
diction over the matter. He
argued that SWCC should
have appealed the plat ap-
proval to the Circuit Court
within 30 days following the
2003 meeting..
SWCC's attorney Ken
Goldberg explained that the
only issue the BCC consid-
ered in 2003 was the plat,
which he described as "a hori-
zontal division of property
into lots." Based on
Theriaque's representation,
he continued, the plat was
approvable because if you
have buildable uplands, you
can plat in the V-zone. There-
fore, there was no basis for
challenging the plat in court.
"We are here tonight (at the
ZBA) challenging the fact
that there is no development
order for the six houses be-
ing built," he told the board.
According to Goldberg, no
buildings were shown on the
plat, therefore a challenge
co'dld ribt be brought tin til,
construction began and it
became apparent where on
the lots the buildings would
be located.
Goldberg told the ZBA
that when construction be-
gan, SWCC notified code en-
forcement, and after that,
Mike Lane, then planning di-
rector, made a decision to al-
low construction to continue.
That action started the 30-
day clock, he said, within
which SWCC filed their ap-
peal to the ZBA.
Goldberg also said that the
building permit applications
represented that the houses
were out of the V-zone, but
that they should have delin-
eated which part of the struc-
tures were in the zone and
out of the zone.
"We are appealing the de-


w .

_- *

cision that building within
the V-zone is allowable," he
stated.
A lengthy discussion fol-
lowed, including the reading
of some portion of the tran-
script .from the 2003 BCC
meeting where the plat was
approved. The transcript re-
flects that Theriaque sug-
gested to the BCC that "sub-
stantial buildable area"
should be construed as verti-
cal distance, (air) and that he
said the houses would be
built on pilings, above the
threshold forthe V-zone. ,
Theriaque told the ZBA
that the commissioners di-
rected staff to accept this in-
terpretation, and that the
ZBA has no jurisdiction to
second guess the BCC.
This argument seems to
suggest that building on pil-
ings gets the houses out of
the V-zone, but Goldberg said
that FEMA rules state that
the pilings are part of the
structure and therefore the
buildings remain in the V-
zone.
I Zoning board member Flip
Spann interpreted the plat to
mean that, 'as a builder, he
could build within the set-
backs shown on, the plat.
Goldberg argued that the
plat doesn't show any build-
ings, and that a development
order and a building permit
must be obtained. ,


Chair Joe Johnson re-:
minded the board that the
issue was when the 30-day
clock started at the BCC
meeting in 2003, or when
SWCC challenged the con-,
struction and Mike Lane's
interpretation of the code,
based on direction given to
him from the BCC.
Board member Frank Hall
wondered if the BCC has the
authority to introduce a "ver-
tical element" into the code:'
Hall made a motion to hear
the case, which failed to ob-
tain a second. Then Spann
made a motion to grant
Theriaque's request for dis-
missal, which was approved
3-1.
After the hearing, SWCC
executive director Anita Page
said the citizens' group would
weigh their options.
Also after the hearing, ZBA
board member Frank Hall
resigned. "My resignation
has nothing to do with the
hearing," he told the Beach
Breeze, "but it has everything
to do with why I am moving.
The board chose not to hear-
the appeal, when they had
the clear authority to do so.
"The philosophy of the
county boards and commis-'
sions is that they do not want
to apply the land develop-
ment code. I am tired of liv-
ing in a lawless community,"
he concluded.

UTRILLO RETURNS Years ago in Tallahasse in the
early 60s, I became enamored of the French streetscenes
of Maurice Utrillo and lucked into one his 24x30 prints for
$5 at a Kresge Five & Dime. Ten years later, with chil-
dren flying out of the nest, the painting became just an-
other item in a garage sale.
While spending a recent weekend in the capital city, I
went shopping in a section of the city that has become a
-venue for vintage.stuff. I entered the eclectic Funshun
'Junkshun, a warehouse of used furniture. In moments I
felt the eerie chill of deja vu as I spotted the Utrillo.
There it was, hanging by the entrance, and I knew it
.was mine not just another copy. I checked the back
and there was my sloppy wiring and uneven strips of
sticky paper.
It cost $20 and now hangs in the guest room.

GREEN THUMB-Members of Green Thumb Garden
Club thoroughly enjoyed the February winter
gardening program at Embassy Suites featuring local
. landscape supervisor Allison Galloway, who works at one
of south Walton's resort communities.
This pro knows her business having been reared by par-
ents in the horticulture community along with her own
stint as gardener at Disney's Magic Kingdom. She also
told of the local events that bloom in the spring. The re-
sort, again, will be part of Butler Elementary School's area
garden tours in April. Earlier, March 14, a pet parade
will be held, too. That fun event benefits the American
Cancer Society. ,
Before the program I spotted two fashionable ladies,
Esther Kolko and Mary Yoxheimer, sporting unusual
handbags crafted by friends of theirs. One, a knitted black
wool with fringe trim, and the other a tapestry print-
both featured assorted bead handles. Very creative.

LIONS LOVE STRAWBERRIES- Luscious strawber-
ries at $16 per flat (12 pints) is the favorite winter
fundraiser of the Sandestin Lions. Depending on weather,
estimated delivery is late March/early April. The sale is a
major source of income for the Lions who spread funds

The Walton County Snow-
bi rds are winding down their
activities, excited at the pros-
pect of heading back to snow
country. A winter wouldn't be
complete without some of the
white stuff. But, before we

has happened, and what is
st ill to the future.
The final general meeting
of the year will be held at 10
a.m. on Wednesday, Mar. 9,

The Snowbird Singers will be
the highlight of this gather-
ing along with drawings for
merchant goodies and the
farewell to some friends who
will be headed north.
The Singles will have their
last event of the year with a
luncheon at Camille's on Sce-
nic Hwy. 98 and Midbay
Bridge Road South following
the general meeting. Reser-
vations can be made with

with kudos to some folks who
have had some recent suc-
cesses. Marilyn Hirsch, for
example, chaired the ladies
luncheon at the Sandestin
Hilton, and the record num-
ber of attendees enjoyed not
only the lunch and the
games, but all were feted to
hand-made purse favors, and
many were the recipients of
purses and purse parapher-
nalia. Thank you, Marilyn,
for such an enjoyable day. We
look forward to next year's

And, the recent Eglin Eagle

Stranger Than Fiction

BAY MINETTE, AL CHILLY WEATHER HASN'T KEPT
A NAKED MAN from flashing traffic on Interstate 65 in
north Baldwin County in Alabama.
Sheriff's spokesman John Murphy said Thursday
morning's incident was the ninth time since July 2004 that
someone has flashed passing motorists on the interstate
between the4Stockton and Perdido exits.
"He runs up to the interstate, stands there for a few sec-
onds, then runs away and vanishes," Murphy said.
State Trooper Sgt. Tommy Waters said motorists have de-
scribed the flasher as a tall, thin, dark-haired man who is
bald on top and has a ponytail.
The sightings have been in rural areas. There have been
no wrecks or injuries as a result of the man's antics.
Waters said the man could be charged with indecent ex-
posure, a misdemeanor, if arrested.
He said officers, who rushed to the scene several times,
have never spotted the naked man. Murphy said it is be-
lieved the man lives nearby and hides out after exposing
.himself or flees in a nearby vehicle.

OLYMPIA, WA IN CASE OF A NATURAL DISASTER
or terrorist attack, some emergency officials in Western
Washington plan to be prepared with a large, shrink wrap
machine.
The Thurston County Coroner's Office recently won ap-
proval to purchase a machine able to shrink-wrap human
remains. The process would make it easier to transport a
large number of bodies.
After the bodies have been autopsied and identified, they
would be zipped into body bags, placed on a plywood trays
and covered with cardboard lids.
The trays would then be pushed through the machine and
come out in shrink-wrapped packages. The wrapped bodies
would be easier to carry than body bags and less disturbing
for workers, county Coroner Judy Arnold recently told The
Olympian newspaper.
"It's hard to think of people ii those terms," she said. "But
it's a matter of logistics, and we want to do it in the best and
the most respectable way for both the deceased and the fam-
ily."
The coroner's office has already started a bidding process
to find a company to build the machine. A Homeland Secu-
rity grant will pay for the machine, which will cost an esti-
mated $50,000.
Rob Harper, spokesman for the state Department of Emer-
gency Management, said it's the first plan of its kind in the
state. The department administers the federal Homeland
Security funds.
Emergency officials around the region began discussing
the idea after the terrorist takeover of a Russian school in
September and December's tsunamis, which killed more
than 120,000 in Southeast Asia.
Photos of both events revealed the dead lying on the ground
or being tossed into pickups.
The emergency officials want to avoid dealing with nu-
merous limp and hard-to-carry body bags, especially in a
situation where volunteer workers may not be used to han-
dling human remains, Arnold said.
The shrink-wrapped bodies could be moved with forklifts,
and the extra plastic covering would seal in biohazards such
as anthrax in the case of bioterrorism.
The entire machine could be wheeled on a trailer to other
parts of the state or taken by helicopter, Arnold said.
Bette Shultz, Thurston County's emergency management
coordinator, said the machine is something that could have
been used in the tsunami aftermath.
"You know, it's neat, but it's kind of creepy," she said. "It's
one of those things you spend a lot of money for and hope
you never have to use it."

ROME THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH is facing
a shortage you may not have heard about: qualified exor-
cists.
And so, on Thursday about 100 priests stood, prayed for
protection, then sat down to begin an eight-week study of
how to distinguish and fight demonic possession.

The course at Rome's pres-
tigious Regina Apostolorum
Pontifical Athenaeum, repre-
sents the first time a Vatican-
sanctioned course in exor-
cism is being offered at this
level:
In Italy, the number of offi-
cial exorcists has soared dur-
ing the last 20 years to be-
tween 300 and 400, church
officials say. But they aren't
enough to handle the ava-
lanche of requests for help
from hundreds of tormented
people who believe they are
possessed. In the United
States, the shortage is even
more acute.
Only a small percentage of
those in distress are judged
to be in need of an exorcism,
and learning how to tell the
difference between demonic
possession and other psycho-
logical or physical traumas is
the main goal of the priestly
students taking the course at
the Regina Apostolorum.
Exorcism the use of
prayer to rid a person or
place of the devil or demonic
spirits has its roots in
early Christianity. It fell out
of favor in the 18th century,
after the Enlightenment and
advances in science and phi-
losophy.
But in the last few decades
it has experienced something
of a revival, in part because
of Pope John Pail II's belief
that Satan is a real presence
in daily life who must be
battled.
Many exorcists, sensitive to
the sensationalist portrayal
of their. practice, especially in
movies and pulp novels, hope
to avoid publicity. That made
the opportunity offered by
the inaugural session, which
was opened to the media, all
the more unusual.
"Satanism is very much in
fashion now," said Father
Paulo Scarafoni, rector of the
Regina Apostolorum, which
is run by the conservative
Legionaries of Christ.
Father Gabriele Nanni, an
exorcist from Modena, said
the symptoms of demonic
possession include utter re-
vulsion to holy symbols, such
as a crucifix or baptismal oils.
Sometimes, he said, the pa-
tient enters a deep trance.
"An exorcism is tanta-
mount to a miracle an ex-
traordinary intervention of
God," Nanni said. "It's not


that we poor men are so pow- devil. It's that God gives us
erful to be able to banish the the power."
