Proposal made


for Mossy Head


Industrial Park


By DOTTY NIST
A local modular home pro-
vider would like to expand
his operation and begin pro-
ducing the homes he sells in
Walton County.
His plans, which involve
Walton County's Mossy Head
Industrial Park property and
adjacent privately-owned
land, include a 100,000-
square-foot manufacturing
plant, single-family and
multifamily housing, a motel,
a restaurant, an affordable
golf course, a community
center and other facilities for
youth activities.
Gerald Wallins of Higher
Standard Homes has secured
136 aces adjacent and to the
west of the undeveloped 50-
acre county-owned parcel on
the west side of SR 285. The
50-acre Walton County par-
cel is one portion of the pro-
posed Mossy Head Industial
Park
"We are proposing to build
an affordable housing subdi-
vision on our property and a
modem manufacturing plant
on the county's property,"
Wallins said, speaking to the
members Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) at their March
22 meeting;
"We have been in Walton
County for ten years in the,
real estate and building busi-
ness," Wallins explained.
"It's been modular, all
along," he added.
The businessman said he
has put in 56 modular homes
in Walton County but that he
is now having trouble obtain-
ing homes to sell from his
Florida suppliers due to re-
cent hurricane devastation in
the state.
He is now ordering from a
North Carolina supplier, but
it costs $8,000 to ship the
homes in from that area.
Homes are transported in
sections and are assembled
on the purchaser's property.
Producing homes in Walton
County to be sold locally
would mean an immediate
$8,000 savings, Wallins
noted.
Wallins said he had hoped
to put the factory on the
county property because it


would be more visible there.
"We need the exposure for
the plant that is going to be
the money prodficer," he ex-
plained.
He would also like to put a
modular motel on the same
property as the factory for
display as a "working model."
He believes that his opera-
tion will draw customers
from within a 350-mile ra-
dius.
According to his plans, 75
to 100 people would be hired
initially to produce modular
homes.
In view of demand in the
area, he envisions that he
would quickly need to add
another 100,000 square feet
to the factory and hire an
additional 100 employees.
He said it is his goal to im-
prove the 'community by pro-
viding good jobs, wages and
housing.
The difficulty in providing
affordable housing is gener-
ally finding a way to combine
it with "the profit motive,"
Wallins observed.
He explained that he will
meet that challenge by in-
stead "looking for our profit
to come out of the factories."
We will be able to produce
affordable housing that.I
don't think anyone else
would be able to build," he
told the commissioners.
"The time is so right." he
said." ...we would like to be
producing homes by the end
of this year."
Wallins' presentation got
a warm reception from the
commissioners, who were
more than willing to follow
up on his proposal.
District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones noted that the
county has a previous com-
mitment on a five-acre por-,
tion of the 50-acre industrial
park parcel.
Little of that commitment
has yet been made public, but
Jones said those plans would
be "very much compatible"
with what Wallins is propos-
ing.
Jones suggested locating
the modular home plant on
the east rather than west

CONSTRUCTION MONEY TO WIDEN this section of
U.S.331, from U.S.98 north to the Chotctawhatchee Bay
bridge, is now in the work program. But there is no money
for a new bridge or right-of-way acquisition north of the
bridge to Hwy. 20. Walton County is asking for help from the
federal government and exploring other funding sources.




Too little,



too late for



Hwy. 331


By TIANA LARSEN
A day late and a dollar
short, or many days late and
many dollars short, might be
a good description of the De-
partment of Transportation's
(DOT) forward motion on
four-laning Hwy 331.
"I think we must have fed-
eral dollars. All of northwest
Florida is suffering," re-
marked Ed Prescott, DOT
district secretary.
Prescott attended a special
meeting with the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) on
March 16. He updated com-
missioners on the status of
various sections of 331, and
the news is not encouraging.
"We want to multi-lane 331
as soon as funds become
available," Prescott began,
but the amount of funds and
their availability are the
problem.
The good news is that the
construction money to widen
331 from US98 to the south
end of the Clyde Wells Bridge
is now in the work program.
Also good news is that DOT
will begin contracting out the
Freeport bypass in May. The
bypass will straighten out
331 and run northwards be-
hind the high school, then
reconnect with the existing
road.
The not-so-good news is
that there is only enough by-
pass funding for two lanes,
and the design of the bypass
will be rural, not urban. An
urban design would include
sidewalks and lighting and
other design features appro-
priate to future.development
planned for the area.
However, Prescott did say
that if developers stepped up
with private funds, it might
be possible to build four
lanes.
Concerning the rest of 331,
the news is discouraging. The
DOT has not acquired any
right-of-way from the north
end of the bridge to just short
of Hwy. 20 where the bypass
will begin. They plan to start
doing so in 2010, but pres-
ently only $19.5 million has
been allocated.
Commissioner Scott
Brannon remarked that at
today's real estate prices,


that would not go very far.
No right-of-way'has been
acquired north of Owl's Head
to Interstate 10, and there
currently is no money in the
budget for. acquisition there.
"In ten years, it will be de-
veloped, land will be too ex-
pensive, and it may never
happen," said Commissioner
Cindy Meadows.
Ronnie Bell, county admin-
istrator, told the BCC that'
DOT recently estimated the
cost to four-lane 331 north
from the bridge to 1-10 at
$408,500,000, at today's
prices.
The estimate was prepared
-at the request of Congress-
man Allen Boyd, and is the
figure county commissioners
took with them on a recent
trip to Washington DC.
That figure is above and
beyond what DOT has al-
ready obligated towards the
entire 331 project, Bell said,
and includes the cost of a new
bridge.
Prescott said he thought if
a new bridge were to be built
over Choctawhatchee Bay, it
would likely cost about $300
million and would have to be
built from bank to bank, with
no causeways.
Commissioner Ro Cuchens
noted that Walton County
now has the second longest
hurricane evacuation time in
the state, and asked about
any special funding. "Not
that I know of," Prescott re-
sponded.
The BCC had many other
questions for Prescott, as
they explored possible solu-
tions, including a toll bridge,
lobbying Washington for fed-
eral money, asking develop-
ers to donate right-of-way to
DOT, forming a new trans-
portation authority to sell
bonds, putting up county
money for later reimburse-
ment, public/private partner-
ships with developers, and a
possible new toll bridge in
the Bunker Creek area of
south Walton.
Prescott said that the
DOT's main focus at the mo-
ment is US 98, but that if the
proposed new Bay County
airport is approved, "north-
south connection issues
would come up immediately."

cilman and doing other ac-
tivities in and around DeFu-
niak Springs," he said.

New jail north

of town approved


BY TIANA LARSEN
After suspending construc-
tion on the Walton County
jail in downtown DeFuniak
Springs last January, the
Walton County Board of
County Commission (BCC)
made it official at their
March 22 meeting.

The new jail will be built
on land already owned by the
county north of the Walton
Correctional Institute, out-
side of the city's downtown.
A 4-0 vote (Commissioner
Scott Brannon was absent)
accepted a design/build pro-
posal from Peter Brown Con-
struction, and a second 4-0
vote for a temporary contract
will allow site work to begin
almost immediately.
The cost of the base pro-
posal is $16,659,150 for a
housing pod that will hold
324 inmates.
The sheriff's administra-
tion building will house all
the functions necessary to
i support the housing pod, in-
cluding medical beds and
holding cells.
In addition to offices, a
maintenance facility and he-
licopter hangar will be in-
cluded.
An additional $344,131
was approved for first ap-
pearance and video visita-
tion.
According to Capt. Danny
Glidewell, Sheriff Ralph
Johnson and Commissioner
Scott Brannon recently vis-
ited a similar facility in
Nassau County.
As a result of their visit,
additional space for booking
and medical was added to the
basic design, which Sheriff
Johnson approves of,
Glidewell told the BOC.
The site where the jail will
be built is forty acres, and an
additional adjacent 20 acres


are available for expansion.
The size of the site and the
design chosen will allow for
"endless expansion capabili-
ties," said Rick Millard,
county construction man-
ager.
Estimated construction
time is 24 months, or less if
there are no unforseen de-
lays, such as another hurri-
cane.
"We need to get a jail built.
By the time we build this one,
we'll have to look at expand-
ing," said Commissioner Ken
Pridgen.
Figures provided to the
BCC indicated that the total
amount incurred or paid to
date on jail construction is
$6,381,020. Of this,
$1,217,405 is reusable,
$302,126 is cancelable,
$2,002,100 is transferable to
the new location, and
$2,859,389 is nonrecover-
able.
Apparently the false start
in the downtown location,
approved by the previous
BCC, has additional costs as
well.
Alan Powdermaker, with
the Walton County Taxpay-
ers Association, questioned
the total cost for the relocated
jail.
"Two years ago Sheriff
Johnson said he could build
it for about half that,"
Powdermaker remarked.
Glidewell said that one of
the things that drove the cost
up was the constraint of hav-
ing to use cells already pur-
chased by the county.
Also, "That was two years
ago," Glidewell said. Con-
struction costs have risen
considerably in the last two
years.
Peter Brown Construction
will begin site work while le-
gal staff finalizes the contract
details for the new facility.


"A few years ago, people
started moving to Walton
County beaches because of
their beauty and lifestyle. As
the popularity and popula-
tion of our beaches grew, so
did property values and the
opportunity to make money
by buying, selling, and devel-
oping real estate-often at
the expense of that beauty
and lifestyle.
"If escalating real estate
values is an indication, De-
Funiak Springs is next.
There are over 4,000 residen-
tial lots being planned as you
read this. People are moving
to DeFuniak to enjoy the
beauty and lifestyle that is
an outgrowth of our heritage
and culture. As our popula-
tion grows, we are at risk of
being dominated by the same
economics that now domi-
nate the beaches of south
Walton.
"If it were my choice, the
culture and heritage of De-
Funiak Springs would be our
guiding light for future devel-
opment. The city would re-
main true to its heritage
while experiencing economic
growth that benefits our citi-
zens. However, I do not have
the right to make that choice.
You, the citizens, have the
right to decide what you want
your city to become-that is
why I want to be your mayor.
"Professionally, I helped
businesses, churches, and or-
ganizations identify their
strategic goals and develop
plans to reach those goals. As
your mayor, I will commit to
help citizens, business own-
ers, and people in surround-
ing areas identify our com-
mon goals for DeFuniak
Springs and develop plans for
our future. I will provide
leadership for economic
growth and local jobs while
valuing the beauty of our city
and respecting our culture
and heritage. I will be acces-
sible, business friendly, and
easy to talk to.
"My parents, Jack Bodiford


and Numa Underwood, met
in DeFuriiak, married in
1932, and I was born in 1937.
My early years were spent on
6th Street. We moved to 13th
Street when I was seven and,
while my career took me else-
where, DeFuniak has always
been home.
"After graduating from:
Walton High, I served nine
years in the U.S. Navy and
worked for IBM for 23 years.
My wife, Lora, and I founded
and operated a business in
North Carolina, selling that
business to come home and
care for my mother.
Lora and I are involved in the
community through church,
clubs, and associations. I
served one term as clerk of
the courts and I am currently
the city clerk. As owners and
operators of H & M Hot Dog,
we are a part of the living
history of DeFuniak, meeting
and serving so many people,
.improving the business, pro-
viding local jobs, and invest-
ing in the beauty of down-
town.
"Trained in electronics and.
computer programming and
a graduate of the IBM Sys-
tems Research Institute and
Management Training, I also
have many hours of under-
and post-graduate courses in
business and computer sci-
ence.

Crop 2003 2004

disaster assistance

program sign-up


Sign-up is underway for
USDA's 2003-2004 Crop Di-
saster Program, according to
the head of the Walton
County Farm Service Agency.
The program authorizes crop
loss assistance for prod ucers
who suffered 2003 or 2004
crop Tosses stemming from
damaging weather, according
toFSA County Executive Di-
rector Jeff Barber.
Eligibility for thecurrent
program is similar to that of
the 2001-2002 crop disaster
program. Producers suffer-
ing a greater than 35-percent
production loss or more than
a 20-percent quality loss are
eligible.
The payment rate has been
increased to 65 percent of the
established commodity prices
for insured crops and
noninsured crops, and 60
percent of the price for unin-
sured commodities.
Producers may apply for
assistance for any crops that
are eligible for coverage un-
der the Federal Crop Insur-
ance or the Noninsur.ed Crop
Disaster Assistance Pro-
gram, also known as NAP.
The payment limit is
$80,000 per producer. Pro-
ducers with gross incomes of
greater than $2.5 million are
ineligible. Any farmer who
did not purchase federal crop
insurance or NAP coverage
for the year disaster program
payments will be issued must
do so for 2006 crops as a re-
quirement of receiving pro-


gram benefits.
The closing date for this
sign-up will be announced
later.

formation about the Crop

ATTENTION HORSE OWNERS. It is time to vaccinate
horses for Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) and West Nile
Virus (WNV). Vaccines for these mosquito-borne diseases
are available through local veterinarians; It is advisable
that animals get their vaccinations from a DMV to ensure
that the vaccines are of the proper dose, viable, and the
animal is placed on the appropriate schedule. EEE and
WNV affect all equines; horses, donkeys, mules, and ponies.
To maximize their safety, such animals should be vaccinated
semi-annually.

Editor's Comment


The meaning of life


By RON KELLEY
Despite the lofty title of this editorial, I do not possess the
secret to the 'Meaning of Life.' However, though I lack the
wisdom of Soloman, I do have some thoughts on the subject
of life and death.
By now, most everyone on the planet has heard the sad
tale of Terri Schiavo, the 41-year-old Florida woman who
has suffered from significant brain damage for the last 15
years and exists in a perpetual vegetative state.
Gov. Jeb Bush, the Florida Legislature, President Bush,
the U.S. Senate and the House have done everything but
move heaven and earth in order to overturn previous legal
rulings regarding the removal of the woman's feeding tube.
At the center of this storm of controversy are the woman's
parents, who wish to keep Terri alive regardless of her con-
dition, and Terri's husband, who said she once expressed a
wish that she not ever be forced to live out her life in a veg-
etative state. The parents and husband have been locked in
a bitter dispute for years without relief or resolution.
A friend of mine summed up the situation with a simple
but remarkably astute insight. He said, "As a parent, I would
want complete control over my daughter's life. As a hus-
band, I'd want complete control over carrying out my wife's
wishes and would tell my in-laws to stay out of our busi-
ness."
I agree completely. That still doesn't resolve anything,
though. It's a thorny issue from any angle. Even theologians
cannot agree.
Roman Catholic leaders say that allowing Terri to die
would be a mortal sin. Jewish rabbis say that keeping her
alive artificially interferes with God's will.
Then there are the politicians. From President Bush to
Gov. Bush and high-ranking Republican and Democratic
lawmakers in the Senate and the House, it seems everyone
has weighed in on the subject and it appears that some are
simply trying to extract as much political capital as they
possibly can from this tragic story.





Dear Editor,
The latest news from our "moral" leaders in Washington
is that the CIA is outsourcing the care and feeding of some
of our Prisoners of War to other countries. According to an
interview with a senior White House official by Douglass
Jehl and David Johnson of the New York Times, the CIA
has flown between 100 and 150 suspected terrorists to Syria,
Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt and Pakistan for questioning
and safe-keeping. President Bush gave the agency broad
authority to export prisoners v.-ithout getting permission
from the White House or the Justice Deparlmekt, ,The se-
nior official said this was done to save manpower and money.
Is it really that expensive to hold an additional 150 pris-
oners with the 9,000 already being held in Iraq? Why is our
government outsourcing imprisonment and interrogation to
non-Democratic countries in matters that may have enor-
mous and critical national security implications? By the
admission of the President, these countries are terrorist
states and Syria is one of the "axis of evil" countries. Could
it be because these countries do not allow access or knowl-
edge of prisoners to the International Red Cross or the press?
Our new Attorney General, Alberto Gonzales, stated that
if the United States sends a prisoner abroad then our nation's
constitution no longer applies. Is this the "Democracy" we
are desperately trying to export to other countries? Are out
of sight, out of mind, and unaccountable now American val-
ues?
Every American wants terrorists to be hunted down and
brought to justice. However, every prisoner of the United
States must be questioned and held under American law
and American values. We cannot pretend that these prison-
ers are not being tortured and killed or that critical infor-
mation obtained is given to the CIA, unaltered.

Alter attempts by the federal government to intervene on
Schiavo's behalf, governments and political commentators
from around the world have begun to offer their observa-
tions.
"Conservatives against liberals. Abortion opponents
against abortion rights advocates. The religious right, which
fights for the Ten Commandments in public buildings,
against the liberals, who want to keep a separation between
church and state. They all want to use Terri Schiavo's fate
for their own purposes," reported the German newspaper
Berliner Zeitung.
Back in the 1980s, a similar case occurred in the Dutch
Netherlands. Their courts ruled that feeding tubes are medi-
cal therapy and it's up to doctors to decide whether to with-
draw or continue treatment.
In Terri Schiavo's case, her parents insist that she can be
rehabilitated with treatment, but court-appointed doctors
have said Terri is "in a persistent vegetative state and there
is no hope of recovery." The courts have repeatedly come
down on the side of Terri's husband, Michael. Three times
Schiavo's feeding tube has been removed, the last time on
Friday. Twice before, the tube was reinserted, once by a
judge's order and once by Gov. Bush using a special state
law that was later ruled unconstitutional by the Florida
courts.
On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge James Whittemore re-
fused to order the reinsertion of Terri Schiavo's feeding tube,
denying an emergency request from her parents, the
Schindlers.
Gov. Bush's spokesperson, Alia Faraj said, "Governor Bush
will continue to do what he legally can within his powers to
protect Terri Schiavo, a vulnerable person."
Rev. Pat Mahoney, a Schindler family supporter, said, "The
arrogance of Judge Whittemore is extraordinary. How dare
he wait 24 hours for a ruling... He has robbed Terri's legal
team of literally a day and a half of the appeals process. It's
an outrage."
There are so many different moral, legal, political and
ethical questions about this case that it's hard to know where
to begin. In the absense of any clear answer, all we can do is
ask ourselves, 'What if it were me or one of my loved
ones...what would I want? What would they want?'
At the end of the day, only one thing is truly certain. As
Michael Schiavo said, "There is no happy ending."




Editor:
Take note of the sheer panic displayed by the left-social-
ist opponents of President Bush's Social Security proposal.
WH can divine some significant information from that, reyaq,
tion.
The president's suggestion (no detailed proposal has beefi
offered yet) would not give individuals anything like the
control over their own incomes and retirement planning they
are entitled to. People under 55 would be "allowed" to direct
the government to put a small percentage of their Social
Security taxes into investment accounts the composition of
which would be determined by. government planners. On
retirement, people apparently would not be free to take the
cash in a lump sum.
Whatever this is, it is not true privatization or owner-
ship. The government's hands would be all over the new
system. It would be a state-guided scheme with a veneer of
private ownership. Yes, there would be elements of private
property. But property circumscribed by arbitrary edicts is
not authentic. It's a midpoint between two conflicting prin-
ciples.
This makes the panicky opposition all the more reveal-
ing. The statist politicians and pundits who sound the alarm
against any change in Social Security (besides raising taxes
on the "rich") understand that even implied criticism of the
program is dangerously close to questioning the premise of
the welfare state. According to that premise, people need
the government to care for them, and those who don't must
be compelled to finance that care. This includes providing
retirement income, medicine, and other forms of security
that go beyond simply deterring crimes against person and
property. Politicians are happy to do these things because
it's the path to power, prestige, and influence. It's easy to be
generous with other people's money.
To even suggest that people don't need the governments
swaddling is to call the entire welfare state into question.
But that is intolerable because too much is invested in it.
Most of what the federal government does is forcibly trans-
fer wealth from those who create it to favored interest groups
(not necessarily the poor). Politicians build careers by pleas-
ing such groups. If congressmen couldn't redistribute other
people's income, how could they "serve the public"?
Of course, the system doesn't really serve the public. It
demeans and infantilizes people by making them dependent
on self-serving politicians and bureaucrats. Who really
wants to rely on officials who might cut benefits or raise the
retirement age if the political winds happen to blow that
way? When someone asks what today's retirees would have
done had Social Security not existed, he commits the fal-
lacy of failing to look for the "unseen." Had government not
been taking a significant portion of their incomes, retirees
* would have had the money to invest for themselves. The
innovative and consumer-sensitive marketplace would have
responded with a variety of savings vehicles. Government's
con game is to crowd out private alternatives through its
coercive powers and then point to the lack of private alter-
natives to justify itself.
The politicians and pundits who claim the sky would fall
if people were "allowed" to divert even a small amount of
Social Security tax to investment accounts have never ex-
plained why individuals don't have the right to opt out of
Social Security entirely. We're supposed to be free. So why
are we compelled" Defenders sometimes say that Social Se-
curity is an insurance program and everyone must be in
the pool for it to work.
Bad answer. Social Security is not insurance. Insurance
is a voluntary pooling of risk. Life, auto, and home insur-
ance work perfectly well without compulsion. Why must we
have compulsory retirement insurance?
We "must" have it only in the sense that politicians "must"
have a method of buying votes and "serving" us whether we
like it or not.

UNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MARCH 24, 2005,





Editor:
April 7 is National Rape Awareness Day, "Talk About It"':
is the theme this year. Walton County Sexual Trauma Pro-
gram (COPE) will host an event at the pier by the amphi-
theater on Lake DeFuniak This is a sorry day to force "sur-
vivors" to recall the invasion to their body by a most hei-
nous act. Florida Council Against Sexual Violence (FCASV).:
reports in their publication Insight that "the Rape Crisis.'
Program Trust Fund has accrued approximately $770,000:
in offender fines. FCASV will be requesting four million dol-.
lars in general revenue through a community budget re-:
quest to augment the trust fund."
My question is: Oversight?
"The Violence Against Women's Act (VAWA) originally
passed in 1994 and reauthorized in 2000 is due to expire in
2005. The proposed Sexual Assault Services Act (SASA) in
VAWA '05 will create a desperately needed funding stream ;
for direct services for sexual assault victims. Eighty million
dollars is proposed for each of fiscal years 2006-2010 and
grants will be distributed by a formula to states. VAWA will
expand the Rural Domestic Violence and Child Abuse En-
forcement Assistance Program to address the needs of rural
victims of Sexual assault... Sixty million dollars is proposed
for each fiscal years 2006-2010."
After all is said and done, perpetrators are seldom pros-
ecuted to keep them out of the community for the rest of
their lives, allowing them to repeat these horrific crimes. '
Concerning all of the millions of dollars funded to counsel
rape victims who want to go on with their lives and put
these memories to sleep, we have each year bring forward
the "Awareness" day. This is harmful.
In my view,; an act of the legislature to fund education for
boys to respect their bodies beginning in the third-grade *
would prevent some of the painful results of rape survivors,
shattered lives. It is time to recognize the source of these
tragic acts and understand the physical assault issue.

Editor:
A number of articles have appeared in the press lately:i
lamenting the lack of affordable- housing in Walton County.
I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Approximately four
years ago, a proposal was put before the county that would
have provided 300 units of affordable -housing south of the'
bay with the possibility of additional units. Since the dev el-
oper worked with the "Tax Credit Program" and a private,"
donor would provide land, there was no cost to the county. '
The proposal was allowed to die by the same quartet who-
brought the citizens the jail fiasco, the "old hospital" de-:
bacle, a lawsuit by a sister county, destruction of the local;.
animal shelter, failure to provide the promised assisted- liv-4
ing facility and failure to make any effort that would have
allowed for future impoundment of water to meet growing
demand.
The term affordable- housing is an unfortunate one. It,
conjures many erroneous ideas and attitudes in the minds.
,pgf people, which result in efforts to prevent such projects
Lrom happening. This is not HUD or any other form of pubi,-,
'lic housing. It does not reduce property values, it adds to'
the iax base, like any private development.

Editor,
"As a result of the war, corporations have been enthronedi
and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the ,
money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign'
by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth:,
is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.!
I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety of my coun-K
try than ever before, even in the midst of war. God grant,
that my suspicions may prove groundless." Presidenti!
Abraham Lincoln, Nov. 21, 1864.
Abraham Lincoln's fear in 1864 has been transformed into'!
our reality by this administration. The military industrial
complex, so feared by presidents Lincoln and Eisenhower,,
is leading the march to consolidate our country's wealth andti
thus increase their control over our government and ourp
country. Our invasion of Iraq is just the tip of the iceberg. I
Haliburton (an off-shore company) continues to "earn" bil-
lions in no-bid contracts, the Carlyle Group has grown into,'
a multi-billion dollar military industrial corporation since
the Iraq invasion. Our federal government's Medicare/Med-,
icaid organization can no longer negotiate with pharmaceu-'i
tical companies for better prices and yet our tax dollars pay|
for most medical research. Energy companies are extract-,.
ing unprecedented profits from consumers. Good jobs are
outsourced and our borders are intentionally uncontrolled
to assure cheap labor. Wal-Mart closes its stores to prevents
unionization, and Social Security is being attacked to in-
crease profits for Wall Street (private accounts), insurance
companies (life annuities), and large corporations (reduced[
contributions). '
In order to continue their control, our government is call-
ing for renewal of the military draft, so we'll have more
people to invade Syria, Iran, and North Korea. Why are w,
the world's military police?
Our greatest fear should be the methods used to control
us by "working upon the prejudices of the people." America's
free press is being controlled by money, intimidation and
fear. Media giants are allowed to merge and be controlled.
by foreign interests, all in the name of profit, not freedom oa
the press. Reporters who still resist are removed by firing
or physical threat.
Peter Arnett was fired for reporting on life in Baghdad
before the war and Eason Jordan, veteran news chief ofi


CNN, was fired for making the statement in a speech thaitf
over 60 journalists were killed in Iraq, "too many by ouri
troops."
Now comes the latest war horror, the "inadvertent" firing;
of over 300 hundred rounds at the car of Italian journalis -
Guiliana Segrena who was just freed by Iraqi
insurgents. Mix all this with tax money being paid directly
to religious groups and the incessant vollies of "abortion and: -
homosexuality" and you have the greatest system of control
since Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels.
We must have a revolution of new ideas and people to stop,
this outrageous and unholy coalition to accumulate wealthN i
by the few from taxes of working Americans. We must elimi-l
nate Howard Scott's definition of "criminal" from our gov-,
ernment "A person with predatory instincts who has rt:.l I
sufficient capital to form a corporation." We must learn the
lessons from our past leaders to protect our nation's trea-;'
sure working citizens from the greed of dishonest men.i

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MARCH 24, 2005


PARENTS MET WITH teachers to learn how they can help their children's reading habits
at home.


County leery of
Wal-Mart building
BY TIANA LARSEN
When the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) talked about
possible solutions to over-
crowding in the Walton
County jail, one of the items
on the table was a possible
purchase of the former Wal-
Mart building.
Last January the BCC
asked for an appraisal and an
inspection, after being of-
fered the building for a price
of $1;750,000.
Two appraisals were pro-
vided to the BCC at their
March 22 meeting, The ap-
praisals valued the building
at $2,600,000 and
$1,850,000.
However, Rick Millard,
county construction man-
ager, told the BCC a lot of
money would need to be
spent to repair the building.
Millard estimated an
amount equal to the pur-
chase price would be needed
to repair such expensive
items as the roof and the air
conditioning system.
The proposal to house pris-
ohief -there has been
dropped, but Commissioner
Ro Cuchens would still like
to have the building for rec-
reational uses, such as a
skating rink or indoor
shuffleboard.
Ronnie Bell, county admin-
istrator, told the BCC that a
need for 8800 square feet of
records storage has been
identified.
Millard said that part of
the Wal-Mart building could
be configured for that pur-
pose.
A motion by Commissioner
Ro Cuchens to purchase the
building died for lack of a sec-
ond.
Cuchens then requested
that the BCC reconsider the
purchase at its next meeting.

Red Cross

WEST DEFUNIAK teachers dressed the part as they showed parents how to "build
better readers."


Families building better readers


West. DeFuniak Elemen-
tary School participated in
"Families Building Better
Readers" sponsored by Wal-
ton County School District.
The district elementary re-
source teachers presented a
reading workshop for kinder-
garten through third-grade
parents. A construction
theme added to the fun as
presenters were dressed in
construction attire and each
parent was given "blue-
prints" of ten simple and fun
activities to more efficiently
assist their children's read-
ing practice at home. Parents
also received toolkitss" with
all materials necessary to
successfully implement these
activities.
The purpose of the work-
shop was to convey to parents
the impact that positive, con-
sistent reading practice at
home can have on reading
achievement, and to provide
them with suggestions to
more effectively guide their
children's reading practice.

Man jailed for
practicing law
without license
On March 14, 2005 the Su-
preme Court of Florida or-
dered Michael Bowers, from
Pensacola, to serve a five
month jail sentence for vio-
lating the terms of his pro-
bation by continuing to en-
gage in the unlicensed prac-
tice of law.
Bowers gave legal advice
and prepared and filed legal
documents in a probate mat-
ter and held himself out to
the public as being able to
provide legal services in vio-
lation of previous Supreme
Court orders.
Bowers had previously
been permanently enjoined
from engaging in the unli-
censed practice of law in 1998
and was found guilty of indi-
rect criminal contempt in
2003 for violating the injunc-
tion.
Michael Bowers was doing
business as Legal Tech of
Northwest Florida and/or
Documentation Center, Inc.

room and during exercise
periods. Then, one week each
year, "Stars," who may be
community leaders, EMS
personnel, firemen, well-
known high school student
athletes and other residents
whose life styles demonstrate
good nutrition and weight
control, are invited to come
to the school, give a short talk
to students at their exercise
period and then do a condi-
tioning walk with the class.
As a means of measuring
progress the school is follow-
ing a state of Florida pro-
gram to determine the "body
mass index" (BMI) for each
kindergarten and third-
grade student. First, the par-
ents and guardians of these
students are provided infor-
mation explaining that BMI
is a measure of body fat
based on the height and
weight of individuals and
that, unless they object, the
BMI for their child will be
determined. To date, very few
parents have opted out of the
program and so the majority
of students in these two
grades go through the index-
ing procedure.
Letters stating the results
of the tests are placed in stu-
dents' files and notices are
sent out in three consecutive
issues of the school paper
advising parents that the let-
ters are in and may be re-
trieved. If the student is
found to be at risk because
the BMI is either too high or


too low, then counselling by
the family physician may be
recommended.'
Unfortunately, to date, the
indexing for kindergarten
students confirms how big
the weight problem is. In the
;Seffar1W.fP-^ Y.kI' F


three years that testing has
been done, the combined
number of overweight and at-
risk of overweight kindergar-
ten students has risen from
twenty-three to thirty-six
percent of the incoming clasp.

Commissioners and council talk economic development


By DOTTY NIST
"Walton County's economic
development is very strong,
especially compared to the
test of the nation," reported
Tom Powell, executive direc-
for for the Economic Devel-
Opment Council of Walton
County (EDC).
However, it was evident
from the March 15 joint
meeting between county
commissioners and Powell
And his board members, that
fostering economic develop-
ment in the-county is not
without challenges. One of
those appears to be less than
ideal communication of late
between county government
and the EDC.
The Walton County Board
qf County Commissioners
(BCC) meets at least yearly
*ith the EDC, a nonprofit
corporation devoted to en-
oouragement and support of
economic development in
Walton County. This was the
first joint EDC/BCC meeting
gsnce about a year ago.
; Member dues provide pri-
vate source funding for EDC
activities, amounting to over
$50,000 for the past 12
months, and Walton County
is providing $75,000 in fund-
ihg to the organization from
the current year's budget.
: Powell began with an up-
date on major projects that
had been discussed at last
year's BCC/EDC meeting.
All of those projects in-
volved the 180-acre Walton
County Industrial Park
north of Freeport, which is
under EDC ownership with
the exception of parcels that
have been sold for business
sites. The park was opened
in 2003.'
Powell reported that FRC
Industries has constructed a
building on a two-acre site
there, purchased from the
EDC. The company employs
approximately 10 people.
"The company is helping
the city of Freeport meet job
creation requirements for a
CDB (community develop-
ment block grant), the city_
had .obtained," Powell re-
ported.
"In addition, the Larry
Batchelor mechanical con-
tracting company has con-
structed a building on a two-
acre parcel purchased in the
Walton County Industrial
Park and is operating there,
Powell said. However, he ex-
plained that the EDC does
not consider this as job cre-
ation, since the company
moved into the park from its
previous location in Santa
Rosa Beach.
These are the only two
companies currently located
in the industrial park, but


there are plans for more.
The Mannon Investments
company also purchased a
3.67-acre parcel in the park,
Powell revealed, on which it
has committed to build a
number of speculative indus-
trial buildings and bring in
at least 10 new jobs.
Previous plans for the site,
which fell through, had in-
volved a Classic Cookie
wholesale distribution facil-
ity, Powell explained. He said
that Mannon will however
honor the requirement to
provide 10 jobs that was part
of the purchase agreement
for the site.
The council had high hopes
for another site in the park
but recently received bad
news.
A parcel had been provided
to Science International, a
company that had planned
an 80,000-square-foot facility
that would have employed
about 100 people recycling
plastics for fuel production.
"The project was cancelled
when the company was un-
able to negotiate an accept-
able sales arrangement with
one crucial customer," Powell
told the commissioners.
The parcel provided to Sci-
ence International has there-
fore been returned to EDC
ownership. Powell said the
council now has a contract to
sell it to another company.
Since the last joint BCC/
EDC meeting, contracts have
been negotiated to sell a to-
tal of three sites in the park,
he continued.
One parcel will go to a
small family-owned manu-
facturing business from New
York that will add facilities
in Walton County. Another
will be used for the construc-
tion and leasing of buildings
to a wholesale distributor
serving the region. The third
parcel will go to a local busi-
ness that desires to relocate:
Since the last meeting with
the BCC, Powell noted, the
council has either assisted or
submitted proposals to 20
businesses considering Wal-
ton Counjty forriew"facilities,.
seven parties looking to start'
new businesses and nine lo-
cal businesses considering
substantial expansions.
"These businesses (have)
the potential to create more
than 2,000 new jobs," Powell
stated.
Among other recent EDC
activities enumerated were
the hosting of 10 site visits
by prospective businesses,
the hosting of the annual
public review of the county's
strategic plan for economic
development, and leading a
county delegation to urge for
additional Eglin Air Force
Base facilities providing jobs


Animal facility still not decided


BY TIANA LARSEN

A temporary in-county ani-
mal control facility is still up
in the air.
After the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) heard a pro-
posal on Feb. 22 to lease the
former D&D Pet Motel, reno-
vate it and use it while the
new shelter on Rock Hill
Road is being built, they re-
quested more information on
the costs associated with re-
turning animal control to the
county.
More figures were pre-
sented to the BCC on March

There are restrictions at-
.ached to the county prop-
rty, Jones noted, but added,
fI don't think it is something
ve can't overcome.
He suggested a meeting
betweenn all the parties in-


22.
The new bottom line is
$222,000 if the facility were
to be utilized for the remain-
der of this year and all of
2006 and 2007 fiscal years.
Commissioners still had
questions with the proposal.
"I am not comfortable with
the numbers. I want it more
clear in my mind," said Com-
missioner Larry Jones.
A motion by Commissioner
Ro Cuchens to approve leas-
ing the D&D Pet Motel died
for a lack of a second.
The matter will be consid-
ered again by the BCC at its
next meeting.

for county residents.
"The EDC is aggressively
marketing Walton County as
part of the overall marketing
effort of Florida's Great
Northwest, Inc.," Powell
added. The EDC is an active
member of this 16-county re-
gional economic development
coalition. Florida's Great
Northwest ended 2004 with
46 projects "being actively
worked," Powell reported.
The coalition assisted with a
recent project of substantial
economic impact to the area,
the Family Dollar warehouse
in Marianna, he noted.
Powell observes a trend
with smaller industrial busi-
nesses with ties in the region
investing here with new fa-
cilities. Excess capacity is
hindering investment in new
facilities here on the part of
large manufacturing busi-
nesses, he noted.
Powell reported on several
EDC activities over the past
year in connection with the
Mossy Head Industrial Park
site. The property consists of
two undeveloped parcels of
over 200 acres located west
of DeFuniak Springs, ob-
tained by Walton County a
couple of years ago through
a land exchange agreement
with the federal government.
Powell noted that the EDC
had reactivated its Mossy
Head Coordinating Commit-
tee "to explore how it can: as-
sist Walton County in devel-
oping its industrial park."
The council also assisted the
county in securing an enter-
prise zone at Mossy Head, he
commented. In addition, the
council has secured the ser-
vices of an engineering firm
in connection with the site,
Powell reported. The firm
has, been tasked with identi-
fying the best way td access
the industrial sites, which
are located on both sides of
SR-285. Providing for road
and rail access has been one
of the challenges with the
property.
Pbwell said the engineer-
ing company is expected to
irpTt bon the investigation- -


within two weeks.
District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones inquired about
what the EDC was doing to
market the Mossy Head
property to businesses that
could potentially locate
there. He expressed frustra-
tion that it appeared little
effort was being devoted to
advertising this property
that the county has owned for
over two years.
"We've been ready for a
long time, but we were told
not to do anything," Powell
responded. .
Consulting his notes re-
garding instructions about
the property, Powell recalled
that in early 2002 the EDC
had offered to put up signs on
the property to advertise it to
potential business occupants.
"We were asked not to do
that," he said, explaining
that the instructions came
from Mike Underwood, then
county administrator.
(Underwood resigned and
left his post in late Jan.
2004.)
In April 2002, Powell con-
tinued, the EDC committee
drafted a time line for the
property with 'action items.
Weeks afterward,
Underwood directed the EDC
to stop all efforts in that re-
gard pending a planning pro-
cess that was in progress on
the property, Powell com-
mented. The EDC had re-
ceived no further instruc-
tions to date on the matter.
Later, a consulting team
presented a report on the
property to the commission-
ers and county staff was di-
rected to study the consult-,
ants' recommendations; no
action followed, Powell ob-
served.
After the recent reactiva-
tion of the EDC coordinating
committee for the property,
Powell continued, he asked
new County Administrator
Ronnie Bell for permission to
engage the consulting engi-
neer to investigate access to
the industrial property.
Powell said he assumed that.
the access problem had been


the reason the EDC had pre-
viously been asked to hold off
on the marketing.
"He authorized me to do
that," Powell said.
"We're ready to do any-
thing we can to promote it,"
EDC board member Mike
Richards said of the Mossy
Head property.
Richards said many in the
community had waited ea-
gerly for a decade for the
county to obtain the property.
The commissioners were in
agreement that it was crucial
to solve the access issue and
create jobs by marketing the
property to businesses. They
saw the creation of jobs as a
much higher priority than
recouping the cost of the
property through land sales.
"The only disservice we can
do to the people is not to pro-
vide jobs in these industrial
parks," said District 1 Com-
missioner Scott Brannon.
Powell said the EDC would
be very willing to start mar-
keting the Mossy Head prop-
erty regardless of the past,
history. It could also be added


to the Florida's Great North-
west inventory of properties
for additional exposure, he
suggested.
Brannon recommended
that the EDC also help with
the effort to provide afford-'
able housing in the county'
and to help insure that devel-
opers of large tracts follow
through with providing work,
force housing in accordance
with legal requirements. -
The commissioners agreed'
to consider providing a spec
building for potential indus-:
trial park businesses to visit-
when considering locating in
Walton County.
Brannon encouraged the
EDC to participate in the'
Walton County Coalition, a'
group composed of represen-
tatives of county agencies
and other entities combined-
with those from the local'
municipalities. A major goal-
is better communication and'
coordination of efforts within-:
the county.

The reason for joy at Easter


SPIRIT AND THE BRIDE WORSHIP CENTER Are you one of so many
people that are tired of going to church and leaving the same way you
came in (hungry and hurting)? Do you feel like you are so far away from
God, in a time that you need Him the most? That maybe if you could just
get to Him, so many things in your life would change? Have you been hurt
by so called Christians, and now you won't even go into the house of God?
Do you have so many questions and no answers? There is a church you can
come to and not be judged by what you're wearing orwhat mistakes you've
made. Jesus says to come as you are, not come when you're perfect. If any
of these things apply to you, we invite you to come and get the answers
you need, come and get to Jesus. After all, you are hungry, aren't you? Take

Love [If4


Neighbor

But I say unto you, that ye
resist not evil: but
whosoever shall smite
thee on thy right cheek,
turn to him the other also.
Matthew 5:39


mas. That is really strange, because if there were no Easter,
there would be no need to celebrate Christmas. If there were
no Resurrection, then Christ was born, lived and died in vain.
There would be no New Testament, no Church, no Chris-
tianity, and no hope. But the Resurrection means the joy of
forgiveness.
We who trust in Christ have been forgiven. The very first
appearance of the risen Christ to an Apostle was to Peter.
Christ appeared to him that He might forgive Peter for de-
nying Him three times. Christ has atoned for our sins by
His death on the cross. He paid our sin debt and opened the
way to the Father. We can be forgiven, as surely as Simon
Peter was forgiven.
We can be joyful that forgiveness is not something that we
can experience only once. Scripture says, "If we confess our
sins, He is faithful and just to forgive our sins, and to cleanse
us from all unrighteousness: (1 John 1:9). To be forgiven
once would be adequate if we only sinned once, but we need
God's continued forgiveness.
Because we are so graciously forgiven, we can learn to for-
give others readily and happily, when they repent of what
they may have done to uis. Indeed, Christ taught us in the
Lord's Prayer and in the Sermon on the Mount that we shall
be forgiven as we forgive. An unforgiving spirit is a. spiri-
tual short circuit, which does not let God's power through.
Do you need to forgive someone this Easter? Perhaps some-
one at work has wronged you. Maybe in your marriage you
have been wronged. Maybe someone has sinned against you.
Let Easter swing wide the gates of forgiveness: not only of
divine forgiveness, but of human forgiveness as well.

God will be, having revival

On a glorious Easter morn,
our Savior rose from the dead!
He came out of that lonely tomb,
just as His holy word said.

A new life in Him we've found!
Death will never hold its prey.
Our home in paradise awaits,
where we'll join Him on that day!

The pine trees know he's coming,
their little crosses shoot up high.
It's time for a new awakening,
all Earth is looking to the skies!

Springs' breath brings a promise,
putting on its flowery dress.
Easter lilies show God's glory,
rising from bulbs that lay at rest.

The sun spreads its golden' light,
bring Easter blessing our way.
Now all nature is singing,
in a rainbow colored spray!

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 pray-
ing for a well-meaning member about opposing his min-
istry. 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 all
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.

TOOK THIS 18
pound turkey
with a 10 inch
beard from the
Eglin reservation
on opening day of
turkey season. He
had been on his
stand less then
an hour when he
called the gobbler
in.


Spring turkey season runs March 19 -April 24


Deer hunters have their
time of year and duck hunt-
ers theirs, but this is the time
of year for spring turkey
hunters.
In the northern two-thirds
of Florida, which includes the
state's central and northwest
management zones, the
spring turkey season is
March 19 -April 24. Accord-
ing to regulations of the


Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC), hunters are allowed
to bag one bearded turkey or
gobbler per day, two for the
spring season.
While any variety of manu-
ally operated turkey calls are
legal and used by hunters,
electronic calls are prohibited
in Florida.
On private lands turkey


hunters can hunt from 30
minutes before sunrise until
legal sunset. On wildlife
management areas, hunting
is allowed until 1 p.m. on
open hunting days.
In Holmes County, turkey
hunting remains closed.
FWC Commissioners re-
cently approved a three-day
spring season for 2006.

Pirates spear


Bobcats 14-5


By PATRICK CASEY
Ponce de Leon pounded out
ten hits and took advantage
of seven Paxton errors as
they defeated the Bobcats 14-
5. PDL used a 7-ruri fifth in-
ning to put the game away
after Paxton had scratched'
back to within a run in the
top of the fifth. Cleanup hit-
ter Jason Stafford had three
hits, including a two-run
double in the bottom of the
fifth that helped the Pirates
avenge a 2-1 loss to Paxton
earlier this season.
Paxton took a 2-0 lead in
the second as three'walks-'
and a Jeremy Radney single
put the Bobcats on top. PDL
answered with one run in the
second and four in the third
as the Pirates got four singles


* -omb


JOHN DEERE
NOTHING RUNS LIKE A DEERE'-


and a hit batter off Paxton
starter Austin Garrett to
take a 5-2 lead into the
fourth.
Paxton scored three runs in
the fifth inning to claw
within a run at 6-5 only to
have the wheels come off the
rally attempt in the fifth as
the Pirates sent 13 men to
the plate, scoring seven runs
for a 13-5 advantage.
Paxton(3-1) suffered its
first loss of the season while
the Pirates evened their
record at 3-3 on the year.

For dune restoration and beach scraping


County receives $5.57 million hurricane recovery grant


By DOTTY NIST
A $5.57 million, state grant
will help Walton County con-
tinue with efforts to restore
dunes in the wake of last
fall's Hurricane Ivan.
Brad Pickel, beach man-
agement director for the
South Walton Tourist Devel-
opment Council (TDC,), an-
nounced the receipt of the
grant at the March 22 Wal-


ton County Board of County
Commissioners meeting.
No local matching funds
are required.
Pickel said the monies will
be applied not only to dune
restoration but to the beach
scraping that the county was
allowed to undertake in re-
sponse to hurricane impacts.
"That's absolutely tremen-


dous," Walton County Dis-
trict 4 Commissioner Ro
Cuchens remarked upon
hearing about the grant.
Cuchens also commented
on the marked improvement
that sand scraping has made
on the beaches.
In other beach recovery
news, at Pickel's request the
TDC received approval to


add storm-damaged dune
walkovers not previously un-
der contract into an existing
repair contract with
Shipper's Marine.
Pickel explained that re-
pairs to walkovers at the two
acesses, Van Ness Butler
Beach Access near Seaside
and Miramar Beach Access,
would be funded through


unit cost bids in order to al-
low the work to be accom-
plished in time to make way
for nesting sea turtles on the
beach.
Turtle nesting season be-
gins May 1.
The two accesses, which
required extensive repairs,
had been held out from pre-
vious contracts to be dealt


with separately because of
the amount of work involved.
Over 50 beach accesses
maintained by the TDC sus-
tained hurricane damage.
Most have been repaired, and
Pickel pledged that all will be
"up and running" by May 1.

* WHEN FLORIDA DEPARTMENT of Transportation Dis-
trict Secretary Edward Prescott arrived at the South Walton
Courthouse Annex to discuss countywide transportation is-
sues with the Walton County Commission, he was greeted by
this sign and a group of local citizens wanting safety mea-
sures for the U.S. 98 intersections at CR-283 and CR-395.


Temporary safety

measures in place


SOUTH WALTON RESIDENTS took full advantage of a special March 16 meeting on transportation issues. County
commissioners took action and gave the citizens what they wanted, interim safety measures while signals are being ob-
tained for two dangerous intersections.


By TIANA LARSEN
Four portable message
boards reading" High traffic
area-use extreme caution"
and off-duty sheriff's officers
with flashing blue lights on
their cars are now stationed
at the CR-283 and CR-395 in-
tersections on U.S.98.
Citizens took full advan-
tage of the visit by Ed
Prescott, district secretary of
the Florida Department of
Transportation, to south Wal-
ton by organizing themselves
and attending a special meet-
ing called by the Walton
County Commissioners
(BCC).
For months, citizens have
been trying to get signals and
warning signs for the two in-
tersections in south Walton.
Prescott's visit came just five
days after another fatal crash
at U.S.98 and CR-395.
Countywide transportation
matters were on the minds of
the BCC, but first they
moved swiftly to put tempo-
rary safety measures in place
at the two problem sites.
"I deem this an emergency


situation," stated Commis-
sioner Cindy Meadows,
drawing a round of applause.
A motion to declare a state
of emergency was passed
unanimously, as was a sub-
sequent motion to pay the
Walton County Sheriff's De-
partment out of county con-
tingency funds to place offic-
ers at the intersections, 24
hours a day.
"Can we have them there
by 5 p.m.?" asked Meadows,
looking at her watch at about
3:30 p.m.
In fact, the deputies were
in place before 6 p.m. that
evening and by the following
day, four portable message
signs had arrived to warn
motorists of the congested
intersections, where numer-
ous accidents, including fa-
talities, have occurred.
Prescott offered to help
with locating the portable
signs, but noted that the
DOT is struggling with a lack
of resources statewide, due to
the four hurricanes last sum-
mer.
"We want you to get out


there and take care of it," he
said, adding that DOT 'is not
concerned with the permit
process."

Local businessman Ed
Berry, who has been very ac-
tive in asking for safety mea-
sures, thanked commission-
ers for the temporary mea-
sures. "What I've heard today
is wonderful," he said, refer-
ring to the interim actions.

However, Berry qualified
his comments by remarking
that he had heard contradic-
tions from the DOT and that
he had written them over 20
letters. Berry read from a
past email he received from
Prescott, noting that, "At
that time, six people were
still alive."

"I cannot put much faith in
the DOT, and I am begging
the BCC to follow through,"
he concluded.

According to Dan Arner,
county engineer, bids for the
signals were expected to go


out the end of last week. The
design process for the mast
arm style signals has taken
longer than the community
expected, but Arner is at-
tempting to fast-track the
bidding process.
DOT traffic engineer June
Coates explained after the
meeting that a separate con-
tract process is also under-
way for flashing beacons to
warn motorists they are ap-
proaching an intersection.
Coates expects these to be in


place in a couple of weeks.
The pole-mounted beacons
will be on signs placed on the
U.S. 98 shoulders on the ap-
proaches to both intersec-
tions. After the signals are in
place, the beacons will re-
main and the signs will be
changed to warn of signals
ahead, Coates said.
A spokesperson for-the
sheriff's department, Dennis
Wise, told the Beach Breeze
that the off-duty officers will
remain at the intersections


until they are released by the
BCC. Wise explained that off-
duty means the officers are
coming in and working their
off hours, for which they re-
ceive off-duty pay.
They can issue tickets and
direct traffic, if need be, while
they are there, Wise said. In
fact, on Monday, March 21,
traffic leaving the beaches
backed up and the officer sta-
tioned at CR-395 was direct-
ing traffic through the inter-
section.


Scenic Gulf Drive crosswalk


situation to get attention


By DOTTY NIST
"It's an inconvenience and
a danger to me," Miramar
Beach resident Jim Barth
complained.
Barth was speaking of the
proliferation of crosswalks
and accompanying road signs
on Scenic Gulf Drive.


Barth told the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) that
there are 22 crosswalks
within a two-mile stretch on
this beachside county road in
Miramar Beach.
His comments came on
March 22.


Barth characterized most
of the crosswalks as "im-
proper and illegal." Most do
not appear to be the proper
dimensions and appearance
set out in Florida Statutes,
he observed. They also do not

School board


receives check


By PATRICK CASEY
The Florida Division of
Forestry presented a check
for $10,453.53 to the Walton
County School Board on Mon-
day night for revenues col-
lected at Point Washington
State Forest.
Under state law, 15 per-
cent of gross receipts includ-
ing recreational fees and the
sale of timber from a state
forest is paid to the counties
in which the state forest is
located. The money is paid to
either the county commission
and/or its school board. In
2003-04, over $856,000 were
paid in total to school boards
across Florida.
District 4 representative


Mark Davis sent a letter to
the Florida High School Ath-
letic Association complaining
about the organization stag-
ing their basketball playoffs
during crucial FCAT testing.
This practice has been going
on for several years and is
likely to continue unless the
state shifts the testing dates
or the FHSAA shifts their
basketball playoffs. Neither
is likely to change in the near
future.
The next meeting of the
Walton County School Board
will take place on Monday,
April 4, at 6 p.m. at the Tivoli
Complex in DeFuniak
Springs.

Brannon updated the group
on current tissues.
Commissioner Brannon
urged the community leaders
to not only bring problems to
the elected officials, but a so-
lution as well. "By surveying
all the critical issues facing
our county, we must work to-
gether for reasonable solu-
tions. In this time of tremen-


dous growth, communities
and neighbors must work to-
gether for ideas and solution
for our needs," he said.
Brannon also urged people
to "Come out and see first
hand," by attending the regu-
lar BCC meetings. He then
answered questions from the
group on the affordable hous-
ing project, the Walton
County Coalition, beach re-
nourishment project and on-
going work on land develop-
ment code and comprehen-
sive plan.

tal entity, is pursuing this
potential connection, which
would provide an alternative
to Brooks Bridge east of Fort
Walton Beach. Local devel-
oper Jay Odom chairs the
organization.
In 2002, the TPO amended
its long-range plan to include
the bridge authority's mis-
sion statement. In 2003, the
state Department of Trans-
portation (DOT) lent the
bridge authority $300,000 for
a feasibility study on a bridge
or bridges across Santa Rosa
Sound, Choctawhatchee Bay,
or both for the purpose of
traffic improvement.
Now those funds have been
expended, and the bridge
authority has identified four
potential bridge corridors, all
of which involve linking Fort
Walton Beach with Okaloosa
Island. !
In order to continue the
investigations and to focus on
one specific location for the
connection, the bridge au-
thority had requested an ad-
ditional $500,000 loan from
DOT, with those monies to
come from a special toll facil-
ity trust fund.
An earlier organization de-
voted to the same purpose as
the Emerald Coast Bridge
Authority had borrowed over
$1 million from the state and


had failed to produce a bridge
corridor.
Upon its formation several
years ago, the Emerald Coast
Bridge Authority was re-
quired to assume that debt
with the understanding that
it would be repaid after
completion of the project,
which will likely be a toll
bridge.
Perhaps influenced by past
loan experience, upon receiv-
ing the Emerald Coast
Bridge Authority's second
loan request, DOT agreed on
the condition that the
Okaloosa-Walton TPO "back-
stop" the loan. In other
words, if for some reason the
project were not completed,
the TPO would repay the
$500,000 loan from TPO ma-
jor project priority funds. In
that event, according to Nick
Nickoloff, senior planner on
the TPO staff, repayment
would start in seven to 10
years, at $100,000 a year for
a five-year period.
Without the TPO guaran-
tee and without the loan, the
bridge project would be
stopped in its tracks.
This was the decision on
the table of Okaloosa-Walton
TPO members on March 16,
along with other items for
consideration.
The bridge authority mem-


bers were confident that the
project would be completed
and assured the TPO mem-
bers that they would not
come back to the organiza-
tion to have additional loans
guaranteed, Nickoloff said.
The TPO members unani-
mously approved a resolution
of support for the bridge
project but differed on the
idea of risking funding for
transportation projects on
their cost feasible list to guar-
antee the $500,000 loan.
"It was a good, lively de-
bate," said Roy McLeod, who
represents DeFuniak
Springs on the TPO. This
was McLeod's first TPO
meeting in a newly created
seat dedicated to the city.
McLeod said there were
many good arguments on
both sides of the issue. As
might be expected, the senti-
ment of the Fort Walton
Beach representatives and of
most of those from Okaloosa
County was in favor, he
noted. However, he said he
was swayed by TPO Chair
Elaine Tucker's contention
that it is not clear that guar-
anteeing loans is within the
TPO's purview.
"My only hang up was
whether or not we had the
authority to backstop that
project," McLeod explained.


He joined Tucker in voting
against insuring the loan,
along with five other mem-
bers. However, they were
outnumbered by nine mem-
bers who voted in favor, and
the item was approved.
The Beach Breeze was un-
able to reach Walton
County's three other TPO
representatives, including
TPO Vice Chair/Walton
County District 4 Commis-
sioner Ro Cuchens, for com-
ment on the issue.
In other action at the
March 17 meeting, the TPO
approved the addition of a
Walton County project to the
organization's transportation
improvement program. This
was the resurfacing and mod-
erate widening of Bay Loop
Road (CR-83A) south of
Freeport. -.
The funding source for this
project is the state's small
county outreach program.-
The work is to be accom-
plished through a joint part-
nership agreement, with the"
county providing the con-.
struction. This will be an ap-
proximate $1.5 million
project that is expected to
begin during the current fis-
cal year.

ance These numerous cross-
walks give pedestrians a
false sense of security, Barth
argued.
"Pedestrians are going to
be injured or killed if the

Florida walks and signs to be put in
order to the right of way in the past

on the mission.
"It's a mess, it's an accident

#445D study is underway for im-
provements to the congested
roadway, including crosswalk

Meadows said she has pro-'
posed a policy whereby the .
county could require re-.'

She suggested more imme-
