City looks at more


water lines, land


Paxton mayor


resigns position


by Kerry Stewart
The Paxton Town Council
last week issued a formal
apology to Jones-Phillips &
Associates for canceling a
contract for services to ad-
minister the Community De-
velopment Block Grant
(CDBG) received by the town.
The council voted to dis-
miss the grant's administra-
tive services of contractors
Jones-Phillips & Associates
based on information Paxton
Mayor Mark Warren had
submitted to the council in-
dicating the CDBG award
had not been properly pro-
cessed by the contractors.
After voting to cancel the
contract, the Paxton Town
Council held special meeting
attended by Town Attorney
Allan Ramey in which
Ramey informed the council
they needed to issue a letter
of apology (demanded by Bob
Jones of Jones-Phillips & As-
sociates before they would
work with the town again) to
SJones-Phillips & Associates
and request the services of
the contractors be reinstated
immediately. It was also de-
cided at that meeting that
Councilmen Bobby Kemp
and Joe Melton would work
with Jones to administer the
grant.
Apparently, Warren ob-
tained the information he
presented o the council fron6
the Department of Commu-
nity Affairs (DCA) that indi-
cated the CDBG award had
not been properly processed
by the contractors. Ramey
was quick to add the misun-
derstanding was not.
anyone's fault and Warren's
research into the matter was
not. wrong. According to
Ramey, DCA acknowledges
their part in the misunder-
standing and have changed
.their policy and will no longer
provide informal information
about specific projects as ap-
parently happened in this
case when Warren called
them to ask the status of the
application. Ramey called
the incident a breakdown of
communication. '
However, after the council
issued the formal apology
and effectively cut Warren
'out of the process, by assign-
ing Kemp and Melton to deal
with Jones regarding the
grant, Warren felt he lost the
confidence of his council.
Warren submitted a letter of
resignation to Paxton Town
Clerk Suzan Davis last
Wednesday, which was for-
warded to Ramey.
The letter stated, "To the
Paxton Town Council, I re-
ceived notice of a Special
Meeting to be held at 4 p.m.
Tuesday 22 March. Let me
explain my position and why
I won't be present at the
meeting. First of all, I have
already taken the fall for the
Council's vote. Between the
five-member Council, there is
at least 50 years of knowl-
edge and working with gov-
ernmental procedures,
grants, and the like. I had
been in Office but just short
of 5 months. That's 5 months
of experience compared to
600 months of experience.
Yes, the council relied on me
to gather the facts as I could,
but I relied on the Council's
experience to measure the
facts that, I gathered and if
necessary to reject them if
they didn't measure up. I
relied on the Council to also
keep me out of hot water by
considering the matter before
voting, to verify my collection
of facts, as their experience
should have told them.to do
and to hold the vote if or
when the facts were not com-


plete. None of which took
place and all of which left me
on the edge of a cliff waiting
to be pushed. I also expected
that since our Council meet-
ing held complete immunity
for the members over what-
ever might have been said,
that the letter disgracing me
would have absolutely NOT
been necessary. It comes
down to this: A man hired
with pay and a contract, who
doesn't even live in this
Town, received full vindica-
tion of his reputation, while
your Mayor who.was present
every work day while in of-
fice, working without salary
for the Town, is hung out to
dry. Adding insult to injury
was a published letter where
public apology is made over
statements he did not make
(which were added by the
press, for effect) and where at
least 4 different agencies
erred in the whole matter.
The Council gets off scott-free.
without public disgrace, legal
advisors get off scott-free,
(who admit that I did call
them for approval prior to
vote). The former party is
rehired under contract and
salary and the Mayor is ex-
pected to suck it up, stay on
board and continue to put in
a 60-hour work week and
wait for the next beating of
the scapegoat. I won't appear
before the council as the coi-
tract party did, whining for
my reputation, because my
reputation stands before
God, who knows my actions
were pure to the interest of
the Town. And I won't appear
humble before a Council who
appears around the table but
for one hour a month to en-
tertain the governmental af-
fairs of Town. It is all piled
on the Mayor--A Mayor who
had received no training in
the areas of the Sunshine
Law, Parliamentary proce-
dure or intergovernmental
relationships, and all of
which our experienced Coun-
cil has dealt with and been a
party to for at least 50 years,
collectively. One council
member has been a former
Mayor, another was Town
Clerk for many years and
another who has been on the
Council for' many terms of
office. I did the honorable
thing in the circumstances
where I was discredited be-
yond my responsibility. It is
now a published fact. And no
I didn't quit my office. I en-
joyed the work I was doing. I
enjoyed seeing our citizens
daily and working toward a
more prosperous community.
My own Council, whom I con-
sidered friends and colleges,
used me to rescue themselves
from their vote, which was
the law. My facts were not
law, but their vote became
the unanimous voice legality.
My legal advisors, as it was
reported in the paper claimed
I had not contacted them
prior, which is false. All these
things combined, left me no
alternative but to resign.
Who could serve after all
this? Having full immunity
from prosecution and yet still
it was deemed necessary to
go forward with a discredit-
ing letter toward me in the
service of my Office. I have
resigned my Office, no longer
the Mayor of Paxton. There-
fore I will not appear for fur-
ther public humiliation by
the press, my colleges, or any
mechanism of the local rule.
We all had to do what we had
to do. It must be a part of
politics, but it is too unpleas-
ant for me. Thanks for the
good times and no hard feel-

Freeport growth

continues to dominate

city council meetings


By BEN GRAFTON
The Freeport City Council
meeting of March 24 re-
flected changing times as at-
tendance at the meeting was
above average, continuing a
recent trend, and develop-
ment issues dominated the
agenda. Included were these
items:
Latilda Henninger,
Freeport city planner, intro-
duced the previously tabled
request to re-zone the 1.44
acre Knight property at the
corner of Blueberry and Palm
from residential to residen-
tial/commercial. The plan-
ning board had recom-
mended that the council re-
ject the Knight request. Mrs.
Knight addressed the coun-
cil and said that she only
wanted the corner portion of
the property, about 0.75
acres, which faced commer-
cial property across the
street, re- zoned commercial.
The original request re-
ceived by the planning board
asked that the whole parcel,
not just the corner, be re-
zoned residential/commer-
cial. After discussion, the
council sent the request back
to the planning board for ad-
ditional review.
Henninger presented the
sub-division plats for Ham-
mock Bay, Pods 1 and 2, to
the council for acceptance
and signature. These are the
first plats ever presented in
the city of Freeport. The plat
for Pod 3 will be presented in
April after outstanding com-


pliance provisions are satis-
fied.
Henninger introduced
Ronnie Bryar, the new Habi-
tat for Humanity director, to
the'coun6il and requested, a
workshop to discuss the
organization's program. The
workshop was set for April 14
at City Hall.
. A proposal was outlined to
ask the Freeport Planning
Board to. develop rules for
preserving Freeport's heri-
tage as the rapid expansion
of the community takes
place.
Henninger also recom-
mended that the council con-
sider enacting a recreation
impact fee to be assessed
against property being devel-
oped. The fee would be based
on the acreage of a develop-
ment and the funds would be
reserved for purchasing land
for parks, park equipment
and landscaping.
Mark Mueller appeared be-
fore the council and made a
plea for a letter from the city
that would grant the owner
of property he owns in the
Belise subdivision to rebuild
his home if it was damaged
by more than fifty percent of
its value in a disaster. A re-
striction in the city's compre-
hensive plan prevents re-
building any residence so
damaged in this area which
is now zoned industrial. The
council agreed to issue the
letter and to investigate

By LIZ SINCLAIR
On March 28, the DeFu-
niak Springs City Council
gave the go-ahead to staff to
work with USDA and
Florida League of Cities on
two separate loans that
would expand city services.
Proposals were brought be-
fore the council at its regu-
lar meeting by Mike
Standley, city manager. The
loans would allow for the ex-
pansion of water lines and for
up to 40 new hangars at the
airport.
The council asked Standley
to bring a representative
from the'USDA/Rural Devel-
opment to a future meeting
to discuss the city borrowing
$3 million for water, lines
north of the city. The plan,
would put lines up Kings
Lake Road from Hwy. 90 to
Hwy. 33, creating a loop and
connecting the system. Aline
would also be run down the
length of Sunrise Road, north
of Juniper Lake. The results
would increase pressure and
immediately service an addi-
tional 500 residences in un-
incorporated Walton County.
Standley was then re-
quested to survey a waiting
list of 40 people interested in
obtaining hangar space at
the city owned airport. A loan
of up to $3 million could be
procured from the Florida
League of Cities to build han-
gars to accommodate them,
with up to 30 hangars in
three buildings for single en-
gine planes and ten hangars
in another building for twin
engine planes. Parties on the
waiting list will be asked if
they would be willing to rent
the hangars for $365-$515 a
month on a five-year lease.
Councilman Don Harrison
explained that Florida
League of Cities, an organi-
zation of municipalities that
supports its members


through lobbying and other
collective interests, has a pool
of money available to cities
for loans.
The council also began the
process of annexing property
north of Walton Road into the
city. The annexation requests
came from Maude Saunders
Elementary School and the
Florida Sheriff's Youth
Ranch, located on John
Baldwin Road. Two private
properties would be included
as well. The annexation pro-
cess requires a public -hear-
ing and advertising.
Other business included:
Approval of landscaping
designs for a "gateway"
project of median plantings
on Hwy. 331 from Live Oak
Ave. to 1-10. Bids will. be ad-
vertised.
A canvassing board and
poll workers were selected to
work the April 12 city elec-
tion. The position of mayor
and council seat 3 will be
voted on. Seats held by Mark
Anderson and Roy McLeod
were up as well. but there
was no opposion. They will
remain on board. City Clerk
Dan Bodiford and Mayor
Harold Carpenter are run-
ning for mayor. Gillis
Douglass and James Coffield
are running for seat 3.
The council approved a
bid for eight tasers for the po-
lice department. Lt. Dennis
Ward said the city currently
has four stun guns, which he
and Chief Burgess are
trained to use. In response to
a question, Ward said they
had never been used.
The police force will be
trained to use the- tasers and
the city has a policy applying
to their use. Councilman
James Hoffman asked if the
council could look at the
policy. Money for the tasers,
$7,307.64, came from a grant
and a drug forfeiture.

FSU vs Florida. Miami vs FSU. Alabama vs Auburn. These
are examples of athletic rivalries that have been part of most
Walton County residents lives for as long as most can re-
member.
Walton vs Freeport. Paxton vs Walton. Freeport vs South
Walton. These rivalries have not had the history of their
collegiate brothers, but have stirred locals over the years to
shake their collective heads at the on-again, off-again sta-
tus of meeting one's county rivals on the playing field. Re-
cent history has had some of our county's schools avoiding
each other unless victory seemed to be assured, which would
often prompt a "don't call us, we'll call you" attitude from
the supposed underdog where scheduling was concerned.
Superintendent Carlene Anderson has attempted to cor-
rect that philosophy by issuing a directive that schools in
the county schedule games with each other on a home-and-
away basis in all sports that the four county schools com-
pete in.
There are compelling reasons to suggest this course of
action. For instance, putting together a full schedule in some
sports has become very difficult for some county coaches
who are having to travel long distances to find opponents.
County rivalries also bring increased attendance, shorter
athletic trips on school nights, as well as less bus fuel cost,
and it allows parents and fans to see competition among
the county's athletes without having to take the day off from
work to make it to the venue.
Recent forays to Hilliard (by the Walton football team in
2003) and Trenton (by Freeport the last two seasons) in the
regular season could have been avoided if Walton and
Freeport had met on the gridiron in those seasons. The cost
on bus fuel and meals as well as returning in the wee hours
of Saturday morning from a 400-mile round trip could have
been avoided.
South Walton played both schools in football the last two
years but did not play Walton in boys basketball this past
season. The Seahawks are building an athletic program and
have done an admirable job of scheduling the other high
schools in the county, despite often taking a beating in their
win-loss record.
Paxton and Walton are the only two schools that could
complain about playing each other, and their complaints
don't hold up to statistical analysis. Walton (680 students)
is the largest school in the county while Paxton (179 stu-
dents) is the smallest by student count of the ninth thru
twelfth grades. Paxton doesn't have a football team, but does



Editor,
In a time when so many of our environmental protections
are being weakened, your readers should know that some
of their leaders in Washington are standing up for clean
water in Florida. The Bush administration in Washington
has a plan to allow publicly-owned sewage treatment plants
to dump untreated sewage in our waters anytime it rains,
which would be disastrous for tourism, fishing, and public
health.
Congressman Jeff Miller took a stand against this back-
ward-thinking idea, and The Clean Water Network would
like to thank him and ask others' to do. the same. Congress-
man Jeff Miller joined 134 other members of Congress, along
with Florida Senators Bill Nelson and Mel Martinez, in sign-
ing a letter to the Environmental Protection Agency oppos-
ing this policy. We applaud his leadership in protecting public
health, our economy and our waters. Now congressional
leader Rep. Clay Shaw, from Ft. Lauderdale, has introduced
the "Save Our Waters from Sewage Act," to try to stop EPA
from moving forward with its sewage dumping policy. Please
take time to thank Congressman Jeff Miller and encourage
him to co-sponsor this important legislation.

compete in basketball and baseball/softball and will face
Walton under the new policy. On the court the Paxton girls
basketball team has been dominant over the last 12 years,
capturing three state championships and qualifying for the
Florida High School Athletic Association playoffs most years.
In that span, the girls team has defeated the Walton girls in
12 of their last 17 meetings. On the boys side, Paxton and
Walton have not met in basketball on a home-and-home basis
since the 1990-91 season. Paxton holds a 5-4 advantage in
nine meetings to that date, when the series was one of the
most competitive in the county.
The attendance factor should not be overlooked as games
between county opponents draw a significantly higher fan
base that equates to more money intake by the athletic pro-
grams in concessions and admission. When Freeport, South
Walton, and Walton meet on the football field, the gate is
significantly higher than when the same three schools face
opponents such as FAMU High, Apalachicola, and Jackson-
ville area schools, to name a few. In basketball, Walton
County teams travel well in the area, but when they play
head-to-head or against opponents whose schools are nearby
(Ponce de Leon, Florala, Laurel Hill for example), the gate
receipts and concessions can be significantly higher. Home
games are the basis of most schools' athletic income from
regular season football, basketball, and baseball/softball
games. An extra 50 to 100 fans can mean. the difference be-
tween profit and deficit for many schools throughout the
state.
The new directive means that the county's athletes will
have a chance to compete against each other while reaping
the financial benefits that should accompany intra-county
play.' While some contests may not produce classic battles,
most, by the numbers, will be competitive and allow our
youth to display sportsmanship while looking to earn the
coveted prize of bragging rights over one's neighbors,


A trip to Jerusalum

By Ken Kirchhevel
It was exciting to be in Jerusalem this past winter. Jerusa-
lem, the city of Biblical focus, is very alive and growing!
We live in a special time in history when Israel has be-
come a nation again, and when travel is so easy.
About 3,500 years ago, Abraham offered Issac on Mt.
Moriah in obedience to God. There, God provided a substi-
tute and told Abraham he would make a great nation of him
through Issac. And in his seed all the families of the earth
would be blessed ,On that same mountain Dav'id made
Jerusalem the capitol of Israel. David's son, Solomon, built
the first temple there. 2000 years ago, Herod built thp spp.,
onid temple, which is where Jesus, a descendant of David,
taught many things that have had a great effect on the world
for good. He has become the central figure of earth's history,
where years are counted from his birth!
In one day, while sitting in a comfortable chair, high above
the clouds, we can look down on the land our forefathers
made ONE NATION UNDER GOD, then see the Atlantic
Ocean, that Christopher Columbus sailed across in 69 days
where he christened the new world, San Salvador, (which
means Holy Savior)!
Then we can see parts of Europe, where the turmoil caused
Jews like Albert Einstein to come to America, and others to
Israel. Then you might see Italy, sticking out into the Medi-
terranean.
Next came the shores of Israel and the new airport that
welcomes the pilgrims to the "Holy Land". Visitors can
change their money for "New "Israeli Shekels" and ride a
bus or taxi to Jerusalem. In less than an hour through fer-
tile farms and forested mountains, visitors will be in Jerusa-
lem both ancient and modern, to mingle in clothes, customs,
architecture, music and food. Visitors can eat at Burger King,
or have a falafel, ride a camel, or an air conditioned bus,
sleep in the Hilton or on a stone roof, or Bedoin tent, use
wireless Internet, or have a scribe write in Hebrew on the
skins that scrolls are made from.
Many languages are heard in Jerusalem, since both Jews
and Christians converge there from all over the world.
Churches built over the years by many different nations mark
the places where Jesus was born, raised, taught, and healed
people, where he prayed, died, and rose again! Many ser-
vices are translated into other languages, and true interna-
tional peace is found where people are united in the love of
the Messiah.
The Israel Museum contains many of the "Dead Sea
Scrolls", most of which were written in Hebrew, and some in
Aramaic. They date to the time of Christ, and provide a rare
record of Biblical books, and of the community that preserved
them.
Many people are learning Hebrew to be able to study the
Bible in its original language. Being in Jerusalem sure helps,
since street signs ame written in Arabic, Hebrew, and En-
glish. Hebrew is the national language of Israel, and all
immigrants learn Hebrew in their first year.
Israel is about the size of the Florida Panhandle, but var-
ies a lot in climate. From skiing on Mt. Hermon in the north,
to scuba-diving or parasailing in the south in the Red Sea.
From an elevation of 9,232 feet on Mt. Hermon, to 1,296 feet
below sea level at the Dead Sea, the annual rainfall is two
inches in the south, to 40 inches in the north. All kinds of
fruits and vegetables are grown in Israel, making Israel one
of the few countries in the world that grows more than enough
food for its population of six million people. (I miss buying
tangerines for 25 cents a pound!)
Coins and artifacts from different kingdoms can be found
in Israel, including the Roman coin Jesus asked to see, when
he said, "Give to Cesear the things that are Cesear's and to
God the things that are his."
Many people visit the "Western Wall", a favorite place of
the Jews to pray. The lower stones are huge and date to the
time of the Second Temple. That part of the wall was built
by Herod, The Great, who the wise men went to ask, "Where
is he who is born King of the Jews?"
The tomb of King David, who is famous for his Psalms, is
below the Upper Room where Jesus ate the Passover meal
with his disciples the night be was betrayed. There he said,
"This do in remembrance of me." For thousands of years,
Jews have observed Passover, and for hundreds of years they
have concluded it by saying, "Next year in Jerusalem." For
us, as well as them it was this year in Jerusalem!


Editor,
I wonder what has happened to the justice system in the:
United States. People like O.J., Blake and Jackson can break
the law and, because they are rich and have plenty of money,
can be found not guilty. They can have a wife killed or can,
show nude pictures to children and never go to jail. If you or"
I did something like that, we would be in jail for the rest of:
our lives. So, it looks like only the poor people gto jail and:
the people who have a lot of money are above the law.

'DeFuniak Springs:


A concerned and


outraged student

By Lindsey Arnold
As a student at Paxton for over a decade, I have witnessed,
the injustices of the school board against my alma mater,
feeling victimized and persecuted for merely have been a:
fine example of superior academics and behavior. As a child,:
I watched the debate between the community and the school
board over the building of South Walton High School, and'
now as a young adult I know precisely how those commu-:
nity members felt-unheard, trampled upon, and powerless'.
However, those feelings of defenselessness and the exploita-
tion of Paxton students and teachers is ending-here and
now.
Five years ago, it was decided that Paxton High School-
should have a new main hall, for the original structure had:
been tolerated for. 66 years, and had become inadequate to.
facilitate the ever-increasing student body of Paxton. Last;
year, the "hallowed halls" of Paxton were demolished to make
room for the construction of our new facilities. As the school'
year began, the inconveniences of the nearby construction,
were minimal; the procedures of the construction crew non-,
invasive. However, as the school year progressed, the nec-:
essary evils of construction began to interrupt the daily lives
of the students and faculty of Paxton High School; students;
were dismissed to.and from class by an administrator with a
bull horn, teachers began to protest noise levels so loud that:
normal class discussions were impossible, students com-
plained of walking across campus on uncovered walk ways-
only to reach portables, and elementary students must now-
mix and mingle with high school students on their way to
the media center and art classes. While these problems with
the Paxton School campus are temporary, and will be rem-
edied when the new building is completed and the students
are set up in their new "home", many problems with the.
Paxton School campus have been apparent for quite some
time.
Paxton School is not compacted into one or two buildings,
as many other schools in the country are. Paxton School
consists of 15 buildings spread over the entire campus, a,
safety factor that has been overlooked far too long. Should:
anyone desire to enter the Paxton School campus unnoticed,:
their "invasion" of the school grounds would be simple to:
plan and execute. Like many other local schools, visitors:
are required to sign in at the office and wear a badge or'
,sticker that announces them as a guest.t-both-the students
,nd staff. However, should they decide to intrude upon the.
school's s grounds unannounced, they would only have to park
"theircari^'and strut into the mass of students on their wa"'to
and from their classrooms and portables. A scary thought,:
considering the detrimental social issues of the hour in which'
we are living.
More troublesome is the health risks imposed upon the:
students at Paxton School. Students in the English wing;
must suffer bat "waste" falling from the ceiling onto their.
desks, belongings, and even themselves. The school district'
maintenance crews have spent countless hours attempting:
to remedy the situation, to no avail. Now, as we enter the:
last quarter of the school year, the best they could do was
supply the bats with little "bat house boxes" hung in the
trees on the arcade. Instead of having the bats invading the
roof of the building, they are now supplied a house out on,
the arcade, an area students frequent on a daily basis. Many
complaints have also come from students on the elementary;
side of campus, where respiratory complications are ram-:
pant as a result of the mold and mildew that inhabit their'
facilities, due to the poor quality of its construction.
Other disservices concerning the increase of the Paxton,
High School campus is the proposal of Paxton's new gym..
When blueprints were turned into the school board for ap-:
proval, Paxton administrators were told that they were.
"dream plans" and that they would not be able to offer Paxton.
such lofty ideals. After visiting Freeport and South Walton:
high schools, I realized that their gyms were similar to the -
one proposed to be built at Paxton. Why is it that these
students are so much more deserving than the students at
Paxton? In addition to the wrongs done by the Walton County
School District concerning the current and future improve-
ments upon the campus, students and faculty are also deal-
ing with previous wrong doings. A prime example would be
the media center; with leaky roofs that spawn mold and mil-
dew growth, furniture that doesn't accommodate the needs
of the students, an audio visual team who aren't able to pro-.
vide daily productions due to the lack of equipment, and lack::
of reliable network printer that allows students to type pa-
pers and perform research.
Furthermore, the students at Paxton High School are not
provided with sufficient lockers in which to store their books
and binders for each class. The lockers provided are so di-:
minutive that many teachers find it necessary to keep text
books in the classrooms, rather than send them with the
students. Also, the lockers are located on an outdoor arcade
- where students and their belongings are subjected to ex-
treme weather conditions and pests, such as bugs, mildew,
and snakes, as a result of this location.
Add to the student's agony, the hall sizes of the new build-::
ing are too small to relocate the lockers indoors one of the
many atrocities committed in the planning of the new.:
structure's design, along with classroom sizes so similar to.


the previous ones that the differences between the two aren't;
even noticeable; non-existent teacher's offices and bathrooms;.
and an auditorium that will not be able to hold half of the':
student body during assemblies.
These injustices leave the students, parents, faculty, and
community members associated with Paxton High School
pondering the questions: "Why can't Paxton School be af-
forded the same luxuries as other schools in the district?:
Why are these students put at risk, in both safety and health,
respects?" Students at Paxton are equal even superior to -
the other students in Walton County School District. Paxton
students have some of the higher FCAT scores in the county,
and the least amount of behavioral problems they deserve
to be rewarded for that. No longer are we, as Paxtonians
defenseless, no longer do we feel powerless and trampled
upon, for there is power in knowledge, family and righteous-:
ness three attributes every Paxtonian is proud to possess.

FDH continues infection investigation


The Florida Department of
Health (DOH) is working
closely with the Florida De-
partment of Agriculture and
Consumer Services, local
county health departments,
infectious disease experts
and local hospitals to con-
tinue investigating recently
reported cases of Hemolytic
Uremic Syndrome (HUS) in
children in Central Florida.
There are now two confirmed
cases of HUS.
"We assure all Floridians
that we are vigilantly and
thoroughly working with
partners both at the local and
state level to identify and
control the source of these
infections," said DOH Secre-
tary John 0. Agwunobi,
M.D., M.B.A., M.P.H. "We
extend our deepest compas-
sion and concern for the chil-
dren and families affected'by


this infection."
The investigation is being
conducted by epidemiologists
to explore commonalities be-
tween the reported cases of
infection. Facts and labora-
tory results are still being
gathered and reviewed in or-
der to confirm the diagnosis
of each illness.
HUS can be a life-threat-
ening illness in which red
blood cells are destroyed and
the kidneys fail. Blood trans-
fusions and kidney dialysis
may be required for treat-
ment.
HUS can be spread
through a variety of sources
including consuming con-
taminated meat, contact with
infected domestic or farm
animals, drinking unpas-
teurized milk and juice, and
swimming in or drinking
sewage-contaminated water.

AARON WILBURN

Award-winning Alabama native

.-celebrates his southern roots
He's a seasoned singer and On religion: You know your by Karen Peck, which topped
? __--- ID _4- -r -- 41- T 1 4 r'


an award-winning gospel en-.
tertainer whose career spans
more than 25 years. Today,
he's in demand in a variety
of settings: corporate, church
and conference appearances,
and as a part of the Gaither
Homecoming Tour.
"People say 'I like your
act," Aaron says, "It's no act-
that's who I am." Raised in
Alabama, he celebrates his
Southern roots, traveling far
and wide as an ambassador
from 'the land of Ya'll' where
"you can say just about any-
thing about anybody, as long
as you say 'Bless His Heart."
Aaron Wilburn's observa-
tions range wide, and while
his humor is often pointed,
his jokes always reflect the
2 values he holds most dear.


Baptist if you've ever made
change from the offering
plate. On parenthood: Being
a parent makes you stupid.
First you introduce yourself
to your own kids: 'This is your
father speaking to you.' Then
you ask: 'Who do you think I
am? On discipline: We need to
take. some mamas like my
mama, we need to put 'em in
some cars, and let 'em do
some drive-by whuppin's. On
growing older: Lately I've
been thinking of the hereaf-
ter. I go from room to room
wondering, 'What am I here
after?'
In his, more than 25 years
of writing and performing
Christian music, Aaron
Wilburn has earned a shelf
full of awards, for hit song
like Four Days Late, recorded


Gold City to appear in concert


For more than 20 years,
the words Gold City have
been synonymus with South-
ern gospel music. As one of
the most awarded groups
ever, this-traditional male
quartet has taken their mu-
sic across America and
around the globe.
With more than 30 projects
recorded, the group that
originated in the gold rush
town of Dahlonega, GA has
amassed some of Southern
Gospel's most popular songs,
including Midnight Cry, I'm


not Giving Up, and the Dove-
award-winning There Rose A
Lamb.
With Gold City patriarch
Tim Riley spending more
time at home working with
the newly formed Gold City
ministries, bass singer Bill
Lawrence has been commis-
sioned with the formidable
task of filling a spot that has
long been held by one of the
most popular bass singers of
our time.
Also new to Gold City is
tenor singer, Steven Lad. For


a singer whose dream has al-
ways been to sing for this
very group, Steve's arrival
comes just in time to add his
voice to First Class, the lat-
est project from Gold City.
Whether in the studio or on
the road, these newest mem-
bers of Gold City, along with
current members Daniel Riley,
Jonathan Wilburn, Doug
Riley, Channing Eleton, and
Adam Borden each have a
strong concept of the tremen-
dous legacy they bring with
them to the stage.

DeFuniak actors in Milton production of Shakespeare play


ARC GETS TO 'COOL OFF,'thanks to Metropoliton Cou-
rier, Inc. and Walton CI,:: ,i\ School Board Member Donnie
Richardson, the Walton County Association for Retarded
Citizens ,.ARC. was able to purchase a much-needed ice
machine for the lacitvy.
ARC Director Kermit Wright said two-thirds of the needed
funds were generated by holding three dove hunts at
Richardson's /brm and the remainder came in the form of a
cash donation from the staff and management of
Metropolitan Courier
"We owe a big th,i ,'k-yi ti'to these folks for their generosity
and support," he said.
Shown here with Donnie Richardson is his sister, Linda,
who will be among the many clients and staff to benefit from
the acquisition.


The Imogene Little The-
atre, Inc. is presenting Will-
iam Shakespeare's A Mid-
summer Night's Dream June
2 5 at the historic Imogene
Theatre in Milton.
The play will be directed
by DeFuniak Springs resi-
dent Bruce Collier. The cast
is drawn from all over the
area, including DeFuniak
Springs, Freeport, Milton,
and Pensacola.
Collier has a bachelor's de-
gree in theatre from Wright
State University in Ohio, and
has acted, directed, and
worked backstage in nearly
80 professional, college, and
non-professional produc-
tions. He has worked at Sea-
side Repertory Theatre, New
Horizon Theatre in Michi-
gan, the Alabama
Shakespeare Festival, and
the Courtyard Playhouse in
New York.
A' Midsummer Night's
Dream remains one of
Shakespeare's most popular


plays, and has been produc-
tion in various forms for
nearly 400 years. The play
has been filmed numerous
times, and adapted into op-
eras and musicals.
Midsummer is a romantic
comedy about two pairs of
lovers who steal into the
woods near Athens to escape
arranged marriages. At the
same time, a group of Athe-
nian working men also head
into the woods to rehearse a
play to be performed at an
upcoming royal wedding.
Meanwhile, in the woods,
trouble is brewing in the form
of a lovers' quarrel between
the king and queen of the
fairies. Mistaken identities,
unrequited love, and fairy
mischief come together in an
almost disastrous tangle be-
fore the matter is sorted out.
The play ends with peace,
love and comedy at the royal
wedding, and a blessing on
everyone.


Among the cast of Midsum-
mer are DeFuniak Springs
residents Alicia Leonard and

DeFuniak Springs

Chess Club keeps

on the move


By BRUCE COLLIER
: Since 1999, a dedicated
group of enthusiasts has
been meeting every Friday
evening in the DeFuniak
Springs branch of the Wal-
ton County Library. They
come to do battle.
I From 6 pm to 9 pm, mem-
bers of the DeFuniak
Springs Chess Club think,
talk, and play the centuries-
old game of abstract warfare.
From a modest start of four
players, the club has ex-
panded and contracted over
the years. Club founder Dan
Owens estimates that some
50 players have been com-
ing and going over the
group's six-year history.
Owens' job as director of
Walton County libraries put
him in a good position to in-
dulge his passion for chess.
The club began in 1999, when*
a young man came to the li-
brary looking for a book on
chess. This led to a meeting
for a game, and the forma-
tion of the club.
"It's very informal," says
Owens. "No dues or fees. We
have chess sets and clocks.
The clocks cost about $50,
and not everyone has them."


Tournament-level chess is
played with timed moves. A
typical tournament allows
each player a total of one
hour to make all his moves.
Players use the clocks to keep
track of the time spent on
each move.
A variation on this is.
speed or "blitz" chess, where
players have even more lim-
ited time to move. This en-
courages quick thinking and
movement planning.
After games, club members
discuss their strategies and
offer each other advice or
comments. Owens admits he
is a chess "fanatic," but
stresses that the club is open
to anyone, at any level of in-
terest or experience.
The club sponsors tourna-
ments, playing against other
clubs and individuals in
other communities. Coming
the weekend of May 14 is a
tournament in Flowersview,
Florida, the Willie C. Clemm
Chess Tournament.
At present, the ratio of
-male to female players that
attend club meetings is some-
what skewed 20 men for
every woman.


Community Calendar

CHESS CLUB FOUNDER DAN OWENS looking for a few
good players.


"We have no experts here,"
says Owens. "Still, we have
had a few teenaged girls
that beat some of the older
men. Some of the men didn't
come back."
The DeFuniak Springs
Chess Club invites anyone
interested in playing or
learning more about the
game to attend a Friday
evening meeting. First -time
visitors are provided with a


copy of the official rules of
the United States Chess Fed-
eration, and can assess their
ability by playing a variety
of opponents.
The club hopes to expand,
and to continue to attend and
sponsor tournaments and
events.

Owens at 892-4232, or the

money could be saved and
acted upon it, presenting the
information to the Pax
ton Town Council. My in-
experience became depen-
dent upon the Council's col-
lective years of working in
public office to weigh my re-
search in such matters. As
Mayor I did not have the
power to vote except when
the number of Council
present at a meeting would
result, in a tie vote. At the
meeting in. question, all
members of the Council were
present and voted unani-
mously. The intent of this
letter is not to shift all re-
sponsibility to my Council. I
do have a part in the errors
of this incident. The fact
gathering was all mine. It
was my job. But neither
should the full weight of
judgment and disgrace have
fallen to me. The eye of my
efforts was simply to save
money for the Town when I
saw a means to readdress the
grant contract. The end of
the matter has been my res-
ignation as Mayor. The re-
cently published letter, en-
dorsed by the Chairman of
the Paxton Town Council
made public the Council's
vote of no confidence in me,
stating as inexcusable, the
mistakes of my office, which
were in fact no more than
research on my part and
passed on to the Council for
their determination and vote.
As my actions have been re-
corded unforgivable, I was
left with no alternative but
the resignation of My Office
as Mayor. It was not my lack
of concern or inexperience or
sixty-hour work weeks that
signed my resignation, but
my dependence on the sup-
port of my colleges and
friends who sat together with
me in the government of Pax-
ton, that drew the ink. I take
responsibility for my own ac-
tions and apologize to each
and everyone of the kind
faces who smiled at me as
they passed through the
doors of the Town Hall. For-
merly your Mayor, /s/ Mark
D'.'Warren. .............
Davis forwarded the letter
from Warren to Ramey and
received this response from
his office, "On March 16,
2005, you advised that a let-
ter of resignation was re-
ceived by Mayor Mark War-
ren. A special meeting has
been scheduled to provide the


i


From 1A
council an opportunity to re-
view the Mayor's intent to
resign. As preparation for
that meting, you requested
written procedures to assist
the council in resignation
and special election issues
that may arise. 1) The resig-
nation letter must be listed
as an agenda item and notice
should be provided to Mayor
Warren to attend the meet-
ing. It is not mandatory that
the Mayor attend and the
council may take action on
the letter if he does not at-
tend. The council must vote
to accept or decline the res-
ignation. As a practical mat-
ter, the council can not force
the Mayor to serve. The
Mayor may withdraw the let-
ter at anytime up to the point
where council votes. A ma-
jority vote is required. 2) If
the letter of resignation is
accepted, the council chair-
man shall become the in-
terim Mayor with full powers
and duties of that office. The
council needs to vote to ap-
pointment the Chairman as
interim Mayor. 3) Since the
time that remains in the cur-
rent mayoral term is more
than 6 months, a special elec-
tion is required. The council
needs to vote to call a special
election. The following task
must be completed: A. The
Clerk must notify the Walton
County Election Commission
office in writing that the
Mayor has resigned and a
special election has been
called by the City Council., B.
The Council must call a spe-
cial election. The election
'date should be at least 6
weeks after the date the elec-
tion is called. The Clerk and
the Supervisor of Elections
shall work together to select
a date to allow both offices to
property prepare for the elec-
tion. The council should vote
to allow the Clerk to perform
iall duties necessary and re-
quired by law to hold a spe-.
cial election. C.- A qualifying
period as prescribed by law
must be established. This
date is set by the Clerk and
the Supervisor of El
sections. D. The special
election and qualifying pe-
riod must be advertised as
prescribed by law. E. In the
event that only one person
qualifies in the special elec-
tion, the person fills the va-
cancy without an election. In
the event that no person

plan and encroached on
Shidel's property when it
went forward with building
several multi-story
condominiums instead
of waiting for the dispute to
be settled. Although the origi-
nal damages to Shidel's prop-
erty was estimated as around
$26,000 and the developers
had spent over $3 million to
build the condos, some of
which were occupied, the
judge ordered Pine rest to
demolish the condominiums
and restore Shidell's property
to its original condition.
That's the main joint of
law the plaintiffs are relying
on in bringing this suit.
When contacted about the
lawsuit, Rev. Jerry Chumley,
the church pastor, 'had no
comment. "I don't know if
there is any response needed
at this time,' he said "You'll
have to talk with them about
their intentions." i
Jason Burgess, chairman of
the church deacons said, "We
have no comment at this
time. We are praying for all
parties involved."
According to records, the
First Baptist Church ventu-
ally bought the house and
property, but, according to

Douglass returned to his,


court papers, did not have le-
gal title to it at the time it
applied for the certificate of
appropriateness to demolish
the house and install a park-
ing lot. The city's building
and zoning department de-
nied the application and the
church officials took their re-
quest to the city council in
December 2001.
The city council issued the
development order at that
meeting, but did not notify
any affected landowners or
include with their order the
statement of facts on
which the council based its
decision, as required by the
city code. In February, the
city attorney, Clayton
Adkinson, told the council
that they had not provided
the necessary statement of
facts and the city decided to
delay the issuance of the de-
velopment order until they
could rectify the mistake and
allow for public comments,
which was scheduled for
their next meeting in March.

At that time, the group,
represented by attorney
Allen Ramey, made their po-
sition known by reading their
written statement into the



beloved DeFuniak Springs in
June 2000 and is active in the
rental and real estate sales
business. He is a realtor with
Iron Horse Realty, in DeFu-
niak Springs.
Douglass says he wants to
help make a positive differ-
ence in DeFuniak Springs
and to help the downtown
business section. He is in fa-
vor of a CRA (community re-
development agency) to help
accomplish this. A CRA is a
citizen-run group (appointed
by city council) that collects
new increases in property
taxes in a defined downtown


record. Citizens were allowed
to speak and many spoke
against the issuance of the
development order. At the
end of the comments, the
council took no further action
and agreed to let stand their
earlier decision to grant the
order. Ramey stated their in-
tention to appeal the council's
petition in court.
The next day, church offi-
cials applied for and obtained
a permit from the city to de-
molish the house. Two days
later, on March 14, around 9
a.m., Ramey's office hand-de-
livered a letter re-stating
their intention to appeal the
decision in court and gave no-
tice of an injunction hearing
scheduled for 3 p.m. that af-
ternoon. However, by 1
p.m., the structure had been
fully demolished.
Although it took nearly two
years for a decision, the
group ultimately prevailed in
their appeal and the city's
decision issue the order to
proceed was pronounced null
and void, which means the
destruction of the house was
a violation of the city zoning
code.

by the fact that two city coun-
cilmen were deacons in
the First Baptist Church and
were aware that the mayor
was also a member of the
church. The group said they
felt this represented a con-,
flict of interest.
Apparently, Judge Stone
agreed, noting that "although
the council members did not
receive a direct benefit from
their conduct, their close af-
filiation with the First Bap-
tist Church cast doubt over
their impartiality as a deci-
sion maker in this case. In
this case, the council mem-
bers failed to fulfill their roles
as unbiased and impartial
decision makers."
Attorney Lorriane Bytell, a
partner in Ramey's law firm
pointed out the many simi-
larities in this case and that
of Pinecrest Lakes, Inc. v.
Shidel. She said the judge's
comments apply to this case
as well. "In this case, the al-
leged inequity could have

The Paxton Town Council
held a special meeting to deal
with Warren's resignation
March 22, 2005 at 4:30 p.m.
True to his word, Warren was
not present at the meeting in
which the council decided
when a special election would
be held. All council members
were present at the meeting
as well as Town Attorney
Lorriane Bytell. Chairman
Bobby Kemp informed the
council of Warren's resigna-
tion. Bytell told the council
the City Charter specifically
mandates the Chairman of
the Council be appointed to
fill the mayor's- vacancy un-
til a special election is held.
Kemp said when he accepted
the position of Chairman he
did so with the understand-
ing if something happened he
might have to actually serve-,
as mayor. Bytell told the
council they had between 60
and 90 days to hold an elec-
tion and that Kemp's ap-
pointment as Mayor was only
temporary. The council voted
unanimously to appoint
Kemp as Mayor with Kemp
abstaining. Bytell also rec-
ommended the council sent a
letter to Warren informing
him the council accepted his
resignation.
Bytell then presented the
council with potential special
election dates, which have
been coordinated with the
Supervisor of Election in
Walton County, Bobby
Beasley. According to Bytell,
the town must close the reg-
istrationh books on April 25,
2005, which means residents
can register to vote until
April 25th for the- special
election. Bytell said state
statute requires the registra-
tion books be closed not less
than 29 days prior to an elec-
tion. The qualifying dates for
running for Mayor are April
25-April29,2005. State stat-
ute requires the qualifying
period be not less than one
week. The Special Election
for Mayor will beheld on May
24th because state statute
dictates a special election
must bedlield not earlier than
60 and not more than 90 days
after the Supervisor of Elec-
tion receives notice. The
council voted unanimously to
adopt the dates presented by
Bytell.

Stroll down memory lane


Former Holmes County Woman


writes of those golden olden days


The Golden Olden Days by
Lura Spears Zerick is a jour-
ney of a 71-year-old author
and her stroll down memory
land.
Readers will learn about
the rural family lifestyle of
the Florida Panhandle
(Holmes County) during the
30s and 40s. Meet her par-
ents and siblings and take
part in the creative games
and activities they shared.
Families had fewer mate-
rial things but a lot of love
and respect for one another.


Children were taught to obey
their parents. Family mem-
bers blended their efforts in
finishing the many chores
each was responsible for do-
ing; these chores were done
without modern conve-
niences. Mothers, at home
with the children, taught the
strong family values that
were more important than
material things. Few doors
were locked. Families ate to-
gether.
This 73-year-old great-
grandmother, who lived in
DeFuniak Springs in 1948, is


elated that her third book,
Getting Older and Enjoying
it!, released in July of 2004,
was chosen as one of three
across America to be fea-
tured in an article published
by the National Council on
Aging Office in Washington,
D.C.
Lura is the daughter of the
late Mr. and Mrs. Ben
Spears, of the Leonia commu-
nity. She attended Leonia
School, Darlington Junior
High in Walton County, then
graduated from Ponce de
Leon High School in Holmes


County in 1947. She is a
member of Emerald Coast
Writers Group, Space Coast
Writers Guild,,National
League of American
Penwomen, Southeast Chris-
tian Writers and the Florida
Christian Writers.

Ft. Walton Beach Civic Auditorium


Stage crafters services up comedy with Wally's Cafe


S By BRUCE COLLIER
Stage Crafters Community
'Theatre began its 2005 sea-
son with a comedy, present-
ing Wally's Cafe at Ft. Wal-
ton Beach Civic Auditorium.
The show opens April 1, and
runs April 2, 3, 7,8,9, and 10.
Written by Sam Bobrick
and Ron Clark, Wally's Cafe
was originally produced on
Broadway in 1981. A three-
character, three-act piece,
the play spans forty years
in the life of a roadside cafe,
located in the California
desert about 200 miles from
Hollywood.
The cafe is owned and op-
erated by Wally and Louise
Murdock, respectively played
by Johi T. Guzalak and Anna
Beschler. New Jersey trans-
plants, the couple open the
cafe in 1940, hoping to make
their fortune serving the
endless line of truck drivers
and motorists heading to and
from California.
Joming the couple on their
first day of business is Janet
Chester (Anita Kurz), an Il-
linois girl.on her way to Hol-
lywood and movie stardom.
An innocent blonde, Janet's
talent is in inverse propor-
tion to her energy. She is per-
suaded to linger at Wally's as
'a waitress, and remains
there for nearly two decades.
Aside from the passage of
:time, not much happens at
:Wally's. No customers are
ever seen. Wally repeatedly
glares out the window at the
Mexican restaurant across
the road, cursing its success
and his own apparent failure.
Over the years,Wally,
Louise, and Janet work to-
'gether, fight, make up, and
threaten to walk out on each
other. The play ends in 1981,
with Wally and Louise pre-
paring to move to a retire-
ment community. Janet, long


since moved away, returns to
bring a surprise ending to
the play.
Wally's Cafe is a leisurely
play, moving at a moderate,
almost pastoral pace. There
are few big developments, no
great tragedies, only one re-
ally emotional argument.
The point of the play
seems to be that life just goes
on, with ups and downs, and
love and friendship are to be
enjoyed all along the way.
The play doesn't end so much
as it just continues on with-
out us.
The set, designed and con-
structed by Jerry Schauer, is
a nicely convincing represen-
tation of an old-fashioned
cafe/diner. A juke box,
brightly colored tables and
chairs, and assorted soda
fountain paraphernalia com-
plete the nostalgic picture.
The passage of time is sub-
tly indicated by changing
prices on a blackboard menu.,
In 1940, the WallyBurger iss
15 cents. By the end of the
play, the same burger costs
six bucks.
Thelma Phillips' costumes
likewise serve the period and
the comedy of the play.
Wally starts out in work
pants and a t-shirt. By the
second act, he has donned a
white shirt, black pants,
bow tie, and chef's hat. Both
Louise and Janet do full jus-
tice to the 1950s with pink
and whiteepolka dots and
checks.
The stage and playing ar-
eas are wide and deep. This
led to a slight sightline prob-
lem in some of the scenes. Di-
rector Nunzio Cappadona
gave his actors a lot of ground
to cover, but his placement of
one of the dining tables put
an obstacle in the middle of
the stage.
If the area below the juke


box had been open, it would .
have given the actors greater :''' ,,..
freedom of movement, par-
ticularly in the second act, _.
which contains the play's
most confrontational scenes.. Ii

That said, it must be added
that Cappadona has gotten ..
three excellent performances .. ..


big heart, alternately fretful,
optimistic, and resilient.
Anna Beschler is a great
straightwoman. Her Louise
is eternally put-upon and A
fru stated, but slyly rebel- j
lious. Her second-act confes- 1 I
sion of an extramarital fling 04 ''6 ,
is a highlight of the show.f .* *

dumb blonde, m arglinallyr
talented arid aive. K..rz
gives her both heart and
self-awareness. Hers is the
most dramatic change by the
end of the play, and she does
it neatly and convincingly.
Wally's Cafe is the kind of..,
light, easy-listening comedy
that Stage Crafters does
well. There's a little adult A attorneys atLaw
language here and there, but
nothing you wouldn't hear if
you stayed home and
watched TV.


Wally's Cafe opens Friday,
April 1, and continues for two
weekends. Evening perfor-
mances begin at 7:30 pm,
and Sunday matinees at 2
pm. Tickets are $15. The Ft.

rium is located at 107

By Dr. Robert M. Jaye

In the middle of 1 Corinthians 15, there is an ancient state-
ment concerning the body we will have because of the resur-
rection. Speaking of that new body, Paul writes, "It is sown
in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: it is sown in dis-
honor; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised
in power: it is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual
body" (42-44).

Death wears two faces. When we look at death from the
human point of view, it appears to be destruction. We are
cut off, defeated. It seems grossly unfair that a child, a youth,
a man, a woman should be cut down. On its face death wears
the appearance of destruction, defeat.

When we look at the same experience from the perspec-
tive of the Father, death is not destruction. It is departure
to be with the Lord. That is marvelously different. From
God' s point of view, death is victory. There is a wonderful
line in the Psalms: "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the
death of His saints" (116:15). The death of His children
means that they are coming home to Him.

In the last days of his-life, Paul sent a letter to Timothy,
his son in the ministry. As he came to the close of the letter,
he gave a statement of his faith in resurrection: "the time of
my departure is at hand" (2 Timothy 4:6). He was to be
decapitated. That may look like destruction to us. Paul saw


it from God's point of view and called it departure. What a
magnificent view! That word could be used of a soldier in
the field striking his tent and heading for home.
If you enjoy this world, you have a great future as a con-
fessor of Christ. The sweetest journey of all is the journey
home. Life everlasting is ours through faith in the resur-
rected Lord Jesus Christ.

Thanks Al! This article fit with my prayer time, and
my love for my country.
With all of the negative press about Iraq, the election
of a country that has never tasted freedom, and the demo-
cratic process of elections, I am encouraged that some-
one can gain perspective on how things appear to be, and
how they really are.
It took a little girl in the story below.
Dad listen to your children. Pay close attention to the
direction that you are leading him or her.
We are the spiritual leaders of the family, and I really
do believe that you will wake up from your spiritual slum-
ber and come to God.
Please read this little account, and look at the big pic-
ture concerning your heart, is it really right with God?
What will it prosper you if you meet God unprepared?
The one with the most toys, still dies, and meets God!
A father wanted to read a magazine but was being both-
ered by his little girl, Shelby. She wanted to know what
the United States looked like.
Finally, he tore a sheet out of his new magazine on
which was printed the map of the country.
Tearing it into small pieces, he gave it to Shelby, and
said, "Go into the other room and see if you can put this
together.
This will show you our whole country today."
After a few minutes, Shelby returned and handed him
the map correctly fitted together.
The father was surprised and asked how she had fin-
ished so quickly.
"Oh," she said, "on the other side of the paper is a pic-
ture of Jesus.
When I got all of Jesus back where He belonged, then
our country just came together."
People who bring their families together in church,
don't have to worry about them falling apart in the fu-
ture.
Please worship with us at the exciting Freeport UMC
this Sunday beginning at 8:45 a.m.: Sunday School; Wor-
ship 9:45 a.m.; Teaching/singing 5:15p.m.; Wednesday,

AN INSIDE LOOK at the infrastructure that keeps the water taps flowing. This is the
Goldsby Road pumping station, operated by South Walton Utilities, the water provider for
the west end of south Walton County.


According to NWFWMD

Water supply not tapped out yet


By TIANA LARSEN
"We are not running out of
water it might, be more ap-
propriate to ask ifwe are run-
ning out of cheap water, and
yes, probably, is the answer,"
began Tom Pratt, bureau
chief of groundwater man-
agement for the NorthWest
Florida Water Management
District (NWFWMD.)
Along with Dewey Wilson,
general manager of Regional
Utilities, and Pete DeBogory,
general manager of South
Walton Utilities, Pratt gave
a presentation at a forum
sponsored by the South Wal-
ton Community Council
(SWCC.)
According to Anita Page,
SWCC executive director, the
status of the quality and
quantity of water for the fu-
ture was overwhelmingly
"the hot topic" at a recent
three-day statewide confer-
ence sponsored by the Cham-
ber of Commerce.
Additionally, Page noted,
the Department of Commu-
nity Affairs recently an-
nounced that it wants local


governments to focus on wa-
ter, schools and transporta-
hon in order to be sure de-
velopment does not overtake
capacity.

the NWFWMD since 1979,

ton from Mack Bayou to Inlet Beach, and South Walton Utili-
ties, water provider west of Mack Bayou, are partnering to
install a second water line across Choctawhatchee Bay from

bay, a concern in the event of a severe storm. The second line
will run along the bottom of the Clyde Wells Bridge, shown

Special meeting April 7


Meeting set to consider

changes to thousands of acres


By TIANA LARSEN
I Last week the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) and
the Walton County Planning
Commission wrapped up the
second of two workshop ses-
sions on a lengthy list of pro-
posed changes to the future
land use map (FLUM.)
Now the list of amend-
ments moves on to a special
planning commission meet-
ing set for April 7 at 5 p.m.
at the South Walton Court-
house Annex.
Many of the proposed
-amendments were seen by
;the planning commission and
affected citizens at a meeting
last December, when the
Commission considered
early 40 land use changes
'or parcels ranging in size
'rom just a few acres up to
early 3000 acres.
The FLUM and the com-
)rehensive plan together


govern the allowable land
uses on property located in
the county. The county is al-
lowed to amend the FLUM
this way only twice a year,
and the changes must be ap-
proved by the Department of
Community Affairs, the state
agency tasked with oversee-
ing growth management.
While many of the amend-
ments are routine map clean-
up changes requested by
county planning staff, some
of the county-sponsored
amendments and all of the
privately-sponsored amend-
ments reflect the movement
towards higher density de-
velopment in south Walton
and increasing development
in central and north Walton.
Literally thousands of
acres north of
Choctawhatchee Bay are
slated for changes to the cur-
rent land use districts.
In addition, 30 small scale


amendments, most of which
are in south Walton, have
been added to the list since
December. Of the 30, 20 pro-
pose to change to Infill, which
allows up to eight units per
acre.
A text amendment that
would create three new land
use districts north of the bay
is included as well.
Amap and a list of the par-
cel identification numbers is
contained in a full page legal
ad placed in this week's Her-
ald Breeze.
On April 7, the planning
commission is expected to
make recommendations ei-
ther for or against each one
of the changes requested.
These recommendations will
be forwarded to the BCC for
final decisions on transmit-
tal to the DCA.
The BCC meetings to hear
the amendments have been
set for April 18 and April 25.


ByTIANA LARSEN
A request by Intrawest
Sandestin for a ruling by the
county concerning the trans-
fer of certain unbuilt residen-
tial units from location to lo-
cation within Sandestin was
withdrawn by Intrawest.
The public hearing sched-
uled before the planning
commission on March 29 was
cancelled.
The first time the issue
came before the planning
commission on March 10,
Sandestin homeowners
packed the South Walton
Annex meeting room. That
night the application was
continued to the 29th, over
the objections of Intrawest
and their attorney.
e Last week the Walton
r County planning department
issued a planning report rec-
ommending that Intrawest's
application warrants a find-
ing of "substantial deviation"
from the original Develop-
ment of Regional Impact
(DRI.)
In order to move forward,
Intrawest wanted the county


to find that their proposed
changes were not a substan-
tial deviation from the pre-
viously approved master
plan dating back to 1984.
Now a new DRI review
could be required, and the
current county height limita-
tion might apply to the rear-
ranged units. A recent legal
decision involving Bay Point
in Bay County ruled that pro-
posed substantial changes to
the Bay Point DRI did in fact
have to comply with current
Bay County comprehensive
plan rules.
There was no height limi-
tation in effect in Walton
County when the Sandestin
DRI was approved.
The attorneys for
Intrawest Sandestin, Walton
County and the opposing
homeowners were expected
to argue the applicability of
the Bay Point issue before
the planning commission.
Sandestin's application
was to rearrange unbuilt
residential units within the
DRI. The changes included
the transfer of 182 residen-


tial units to the present site
of Finz restaurant located on
the Gulf, the transfer of 310
units to the current Marina
location, and the relocation of
939 units to the site of the
Linkside Conference Center.

Sandestin homeowners op-
posed to the plans do not be-
lieve these numbers of resi-
dential units can be built in
the locations they will be
transferred to unless they
are built as highrises.
The county planning report
mentions the Bay Point case
and states that Sandestin's
application does not provide
sufficient information to in-
sure that the proposed
changes comply with the cur-
rent comprehensive plan.
A Sandestin homeowner
told the Beach Breeze that
he expects Intrawest to bring
a revised plan back to the
county at some point in the
future. In the meantime, he
is optimistic that Intrawest
will set up a process for com-
municating with the
homeowners.


Appeal Court decision


clears way for Grayton Grand


By DOTTY NIST
Grayton Beach 2005 may
not be the Grayton Beach of
old, but heads up! Change by
the truckload is on the way
now.
Developer Jay Odom got
the final "green light" last
week for "Grayton Grand," a
large mixed- use project to be
built on CR-283 in Grayton
Beach.
A favorable decision by the
First District Court of Appeal
in Tallahassee puts the de-
veloper in a position to begin
building on his seven-acre
parcel across from Grayton
Business Center. Extensive
site work has been ongoing
on the property for over a
year.
The history of this project,
one of the county's most con-
troversial, has taken more
twists and turns than a
heron's neck.
Previous development
plans for the property were
denied by the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) in April 2002
for the stated reason of non-
compliance with code provi-
sions. Among the opponents
were members of the local
conservation organization
Beach to Bay Connection,
who raised concerns about
negative impacts to nearby
Western Lake and state
lands adjoining the property.
It was a somewhat scaled-
down version of Grayton
Grand that earned BCC ap-
proval in Feb. 2003.
That approval was met by
a series of legal challenges,
based on alleged conflict of
the BCC decision with the
county's growth manage-
ment documents. Initially,
not only individual citizens
but three local organizations,
Beach to Bay Connection,
South Walton Community
Council, and Blue Mountain
Beach Community Associa-
tion challenged the county
approval. However, through
an agreement with the
developer's counsel, plaintiffs
were later limited to indi-
vidual neighboring residents


and owners of property near
the project site.
The March 24 decision on
the most recent court case, an
appeal, was issued without
accompanying comment from
the bench.
Controversy with this
project brought density, wet-
land and wetland buffer is-
sues to the forefront. Grayton
Grand was by no means the
first use of "double dipping,".
combining commercial and
residential density on the
same parcel. However, it was
one of the first proposals to
use a newly adopted county
policy that purposed to dis-
courage filling wetlands by
allowing density to be calcu-
lated on total acreage, includ-
ing wetlands. In effect, the
policy fell short of its stated
objective of encouraging
"clustering" of structures on
uplands, since filling was not
actually prohibited in con-
junction with its use.
The filling of almost of an
acre of wetlands was ap-
proved for the project; how-
ever 2.87 of wetlands on the
site is to be preserved as a
conservation easement.
In late 2003, Walton
County's Wetlands Work
Group made recommenda-
tions aimed at enhancing
protection of wetlands in the
Walton County Land Devel-
opment Code. Code revisions
incorporating the recommen-


dations are in process. If
these measures had been ap-
plicable during county re-
view of Grayton Grand, the
project would likely have not
been approved in its current
form.

Grayton Grand will make
its mark on a small commu- :
nity already well in transi-
tion from the sleepy hamlet
and laid-back vacation spot
remembered from time im-
memorial by locals and visi-
tors. Within the past decade,
among Grayton's small
homes and beach cottages,
eateries, and tourist spots,
have sprung up larger up-
scale homes, shops and bou-
tiques, trendy shopping cen-
ters, restaurants, offices,
banks, paint, hardware and
other mercantile stores. In-
termittent traffic congestion
is a now a fact of life on main
roads in the community.
Grayton Grand will bring
development on an even
"grander" scale into Grayton
Beach. As approved in 2003,
the project will consist of a
75-room hotel, 78 condo-
minium units, a 6,000-
square-foot restaurant, a
3,600-square-foot exhibition
area, a 130-seat conference
center, and 1,000 square feet
of retail.

SITE WORK, ongoing for over a year, continues on the Grayton
Grand property near the intersection of CR-283 and CR-30A.
A recent court decision now clears the way for structures to go
up for the mixed use project.

Commissioners identify needs


By TIANA LARSEN
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows proposed
appointing a task force to
work with a lighting expert,
with the intention of produc-
. ing a general lighting ordi-
nance for south Walton at
some point in the future.
Meadows raised the issue
at the March 22 Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) meet-
ing, where she commented
ihat the more the area is de-
veloped and the closer to-
gether buildings are located,
the more of an issue lighting
becomes.
She suggested a task force
and 'a lighting expert, a pro-
cess similar to the one that
.eventually produced the
noise ordinance.
Ken Little, citizen's ser-
vices director, will gather
names from all the commis-
sioners for potential mem-
bers of the task force.
Meadows also asked
Sheriff's Capt. Danny
Glidewell about a parking
offijer.lar. south Walto-n. -
lidewell said that the
sheriff's office was not, in fa-
vor of a non-sworn, non-uni-
formed person, such as a
"meter maid," a position of-


WATER
clude evaluation of consump-
tive use .permits for water
withdrawal. He was involved
in the permitting process for
the' wells -currently located
north of Choctowhatchee
Bay that are operated by Re-
gional Utilities, South Wal-
ton:Utilities and Freeport.
Pratt gave a very compre-
hensive overview of the
Floridah aquifer, which actu-
. ally.runderlies.the entire
state. Here in northwest
Florida, all. drinking water
is groundwater from wells'
that draw on the aquifer.
In the old days, Pratt ex-
plained, water wells were
typically drilled close to
where the water was needed.
For example, artesian wells,
no. pumping needed, once
were common in Ft. Walton
Beach, he said, and until re-
cently south Walton met its
water needs with wells lo-
cated south of the bay.
But with the greater need
for water, Regional Utilities
has had to sink wells near
Owl's Head Farm and pipe
the water across the bay. Re-
gionally speaking, Okaloosa,
Walton and Santa Rosa coun-
ties are now moving water
from place to place rather
than taking it out of the
ground.where it is needed,
Pratt explained.
Pratt also said that nature
has conspired against south
Walton. The water from
coastal wells here is natu-
rally poor quality and the
yields are low and the sodium
and: chloride (salt) levels are
too high.
South Walton Utilities,
which serves the west end of
south Walton County, has
been able to continue to meet
part of its water needs from
coastal wells, due to different
geology to the west. But
South Walton Utilities has
also drilled wells near US
331 and Rock Hill Road, as
has the city of Freeport.
The three entities together
have NWFWMD permits al-
lowing a total daily pumping
of nine million gallons. This


ten used in urban areas.
"The problem is that the
area is too big," Glidewell
said, explaining that if an
non-sworn person needed a
sheriff's officer for assis-'-
tance, there could be a time
delay, due to the distances in-
volved.
Meadows then requested
that current traffic officers
write parking tickets. "I will
talk to the sheriff," Glidewell
said.
District 4 Commissioner
Ro Cuchens told the BCC he
is getting complaints about
the permitting process from
persons wishing to build
barns. He suggested exempt-
ing barns and other non-hab-
itable structures from re-
quired permits. No action
was taken at the meeting.
District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones suggested Wal-
ton County needs a commu-
nity planner, since the unin-
corporated areas such as
Freeport and Mossy Head
are growing so quickly. Jones
thought a community plan-
ner could work on neighbor-
-hood-plans and help to iden-
tify county-wide planning ;
needs and meet with the
communities.
Human Resources agreed
to work on a job description.

A fight at Baytowne Vil-
lage led to the arrest of eight
men on March 26. At least
two of the men were injured.
Officer Charles E. Raban of
the Walton County Beach
Patrol was on duty at Vil-
lage of Baytowne. He re-
ported that he and two
Sandestin security officers
responded to a fight that had
broken out in front of the
Acme Oyster House.
The officers observed two
men, later identified as
Joshua Whitmarsh, 28, of
Niceville, and Bradford Jack-
son, 21, of Bowling'Green,
Kentucky. The two were
fighting.
While this was transpiring,
another man, John Bennett,
22,of Niceville, approached
the pair and struck Jackson
with a beer bottle. The offic-
ers broke up the fight with
pepper spray and cuffed the


men. Raban called for backup
and EMS to treat the injured
men.
Friends of Jackson and
Whitmarsh gathered,, argu-
ing and attempting to con-
tinue the fight.
Joining the group were
Adam Kyle Nischwitz, 21, of
Bryans Road, Maryland,
Skylar B. Jordan, 21, of
Bowl, ing Green,Joh n
Whitmarsh, 26, of Miramar
Beach, Christopher Anthony
Davis, 19, of Niceville, and
Daniel Trosper, 24, of
Niceville.
Officers eventually broke
up the fight and the injured
were transported to Sacred
Heart Hospital, treated, and
released into custody.
All eight men were charged
with affray and resisting
without violence. Bennett
was also charged with aggra-
vated battery.

Livingston wins Lion's Peace Poster Contest


PROPOSED SIGNAL LIGHT SITE

County purchases signal

lights for U.S. 98


\ In a special meeting held
,on March 16 with Depart-
ment of Transportation Dis-
,trict 3 Secretary Edward
'Prescott, the Walton County
Commissioners declared an
emergency situation at the
intersections of CR- 283 and
CR-395 at U.S. 98 in south
Walton County. This action
:was taken as a result of nu-
merous accidents at those in-
:tersections and the ongoing
pursuit of traffic signals at
those locations by Walton
,County.
id The commissioners quickly
!voted to waive the normal bid
:procedures for obtaining the
:needed lights, and requested
:that DOT consider waiving
:any permitting process
where possible. Immediately
following the meeting,
:trailer-mounted signage and
:off-duty deputies were placed
:at the intersections to slow
,traffic and warn of hazardous
:conditions.
Prescott expressed his ap-
preciation to the board for
their eagerness to help and
protect the community. He
stated that the FDOT was


committed to reimburse Wal-
ton County for the installa-
tion of the traffic signals at
both intersections. He also
stated that the DOT sup-
ported Walton County in do-
ing what was necessary to
protect the citizens and as-
sured the commissioners
that the permitting process
would not be an issue.
Acting promptly on the
board's vote, a purchase or-
der was issued on March 25
by Walton County Purchas-
ing to Griffin Traffic Signals
to construct and install the
traffic signals at U.S. 98 in-
tersection at CR-395 and CR-
283. Public Works engineers
estimate the-work will take
Griffin about six to seven
months to complete. This is
largely due to the size and
configuration of the CR- 395
intersection.
According to County Ad-
ministrator Ronnie Bell, the
emergency flashing lights
and sheriff's deputies will
remain on the site of those
intersections as long as nec-
essary to protect the public.


By DOTTY NIST
In keeping with recent in-
creased focus on traffic safety
south of the bay, the Walton
County Sheriffs Department
has proposed setting up a
special purpose five-officer
unit in south Walton County.
The unit would be devoted to
traffic safety and enforce-
ment.
Capt. Danny Glidewell of
the Walton County Sheriffs
Office brought the matter
before the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners on March 22 and
asked for the commissioners'
help with funding.
Glidewell said the team
would be stationed south of
the bay and would have its
own supervisor (one of the
five officers.)
Purposes of the unit would
be promotion of traffic safety,
enhancement of traffic flow
tn main and feeder routes,
and enforcement of state
traffic statutes and county
traffic ordinances.
The proposed unit would
concentrate ,on U.S. 98, U.S.
3:31 south of Freeport, and
CR-30A but would be avail-
able to go elsewhere to re-
9pond to traffic-related emer-
gencies.
"This is definitely needed,"
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows responded.
She asked if the department
wouldd add Scenic Gulf Drive
bo the areas of primary focus
For the unit.
"Yes, ma'am, we can,"
Glidewell replied.
He added that the officers
-ould also deal with viola-
Lions on the bike paths in the
absence of heavy traffic or
emergencies.
Another component of the
sheriffs office proposal is
equipment, including not
snly vehicles, firearms and
)asic gear but arrow boards,
railerss and other traffic
equipment. to enable fast re-
ponse to problem areas.
: Currently the department
as no traffic-related equip-
ient, Glidewell told the com-
issioners. They have ap-
lied to the state for this type


of equipment, but none has
been provided, he explained.
(The temporary electronic
signs now being used on U.S.
98 belong to county public
works and the state Depart-
ment of Transportation.)
County Administrator
Ronnie Bell credited the
sheriffs department for be-
ing very responsive to the
critical safety problem on
U.S. 98.
Meadows agreed, noting
that, with the sheriffs cars
recently stationed on U.S. 98
at two problem intersections,
CR-395 and CR-283, results
have been excellent and
"people slow down immedi-
ately."
Glidewell agreed but noted
that these are not the only
intersections south of the bay
where critical problems exist
and that the department is
not able to fund deputies to
sit at all of them.
The equipment the depart-
ment would like to obtain
could be used with similar
results and could be moved
around to different areas in
response to changing condi-
tions, he explained.
Estimated cost for the pro-
posed unit plus equipment
for the first year would be
approximately $353,000.
Cost for the second year is
expected to come to approxi-
mately $225,000.
*The commissioners agreed
to look at ways to fund the
unit. District 3 Commis-
sioner Larry Jones com-
mented that, if the unit is put
in place, it would be impor-
tant that there be a commit-
ment by the department to
keep it focused on its stated
purpose.
"Traffic can be moved to the
end of the line very easily,"
he warned, noting that the
additional personnel could
not be used as "just supple-
mental officers."
"I think you're exactly
right," Glidewell agreed.

State's most congested road survey


Florida's worst roads will
be revealed in a new online
survey that allows citizens to
vote for the state's "Most
Congested Road." Though
not a scientific study, the con-
test will give citizens a
chance to express their con-
cerns in a meaningful way.
The effort also will provide
background information for
"Get Florida Moving," a cam-
paign developed by
Floridian's for Better Trans-
portation (FBT) designed to
focus attention on Florida's
serious and growing trans-
portation problems.
The campaign's primary
component is an interactive
website, available at
www.GetFlorida Moving.org,
that enables drivers to share
their own experiences and


post photos of poor traffic
conditions. The website was
created with the goals of edu-
cating Floridians about road
safety issues and encourag-
dingidriversto laet.their legis,-
lators know how this grow-
ing problem is affecting their
daily lives. Motorists# can
also stay informed by signing
up to receive e-mail updates
and reading the latest trans-
portation news.
"In order to end the
gridlock on our roads, we first
must end the political
gridlock in the Legislature,"
said Doug Callaway, presi-
dent of FBT. "We want law-
makers to understand the
level of frustration that ex-
ists on our highways and
highlighting the worst roads
is a good place to start."


The findings of a recent
statewide Mason-Dixon sur-
vey commissioned by FBT in-
dicate that motorists are
aware of Florida's transpor-
.:,tation problems since- most
drivers experience those
problems firsthand. -
Out of the 625 registered
voters' polled, 76 percent re-
ported spending 30 minutes
or more in their automobile
each day. Two-thirds of re-
spondents spend an average
of at least 15 minutes per day
in congested traffic. Addi-
tionally, 60 percent of those
polled agree that, traffic flow
is a big problem in their com-
munity."

rounding Florida's growth

Food safety guidelines for spring


As springtime holidays ap-
proach, the Florida Depart-
ment of Health (DOH) re-
minds Florida residents and
visitors to put safety at the
top of their priority list.
"As family and friends
gather to celebrate this
spring, we urge all individu-
als to be cautious when pre-
paring and serving foods,"
said DOH Secretary John 0.
Agwunobi, M.D., M.B.A.,
M.P.H. "We want everyone to
stay safe and healthy as they
enjoy the festivities of the
season."
Eggs, a common food of the
season, need to be properly
handled to prevent illness.,
DOH recommends cooking
eggs thoroughly and using a


food thermometer to ensure
that egg-containing foods
reach a safe internal tem-
perature of at least 160 F.
DOH also recommends all
individuals practice four ba-
sic steps to prevent illness:
*Clean hands Always
wash hands before and after
food preparation with hot
water and soap, especially
when handling raw animal
products such as raw eggs.
*Beware of cross-contami-
nation Wash kitchen equip-
ment in hot, soapy water, be-
fore and after food prepara-
tion.
*Cook Cook eggs until the
yolks and whites are firm.
Do not eat raw batter con-
taining raw eggs.


Chill Refrigerate eggs
and egg-containing foods. Do
not leave perishables at room
temperature for more than
two hours.
Salmonella, a bacteria
found in many raw foods, can
cause serious illness in chil-
dren, seniors and immune-
compromised persons. Com-,
nion symptoms of salmonella
include diarrhea, fever and
stomach pain beginning 1-3
days after exposure. Other

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MARCH 31, 2005


- Thank you Wal-Mart -Somewhere between checkout
counter and parking lot at Wal-Mart early Easter Saturday
1 lost my wallet; and it wasn't until I returned home that
I noticed it was missing. After a frantic search of purse, gro-
tcery bags, car and berating myself for being an absent-
minded #*@X!, I called the store and told them of my plight.
They couldn't have been more solicitous as they promised
to check and call me back. And they did.
The wallet had been found on the floor of the garden shop
where I had exited the store and was waiting for me in cus-
tomer service. I found out later that someone from the
store also tried to reach me at the Beach Breeze office num-
ber. I always tuck a business card or two in the wallet. Wal-
Mart may be a huge conglomerate, but the employees I spoke
to were concerned hometown folks, terrific and professional,
who made my Easter bright.

Easter at Eden-The drenching rains last Sunday stopped
just long enough to celebrate Easter at Eden, now in its
fifth year.
Thank heavens for the new pavilion-that sheltered all from
'the tornado-watch storm that hovered all day. I always feel
nostalgic when entering the rustic pavilion as it reminds
ine of the recreation barn at our Sheepshead Bay summer
.place (minus the yellow, sticky flypapers) of my childhood.
'Adding to the old-timey atmosphere were the Shalimar Peli-
can Pickers, who entertained with their dulcimers- America's
folk instrument.
; The Easter bunny arrived in grand style with goodies for
.the youngsters who then went hunting for the eggs that had
been hidden about by the Friends of Eden. A grand time
was had by all.
Landscape Award Deadline-It's that time of year again
when Green Thumb Garden Club holds its American Pride
Landscape Award.
The competition is open to both residential and commer-
cial properties in south Walton, south of State Road 20.
Judging follows criteria of the Florida Federation of Gar-
den Clubs, with screening by members of the club and final
picks by a horticultural designer. Last year's awards were
presented to the home of Willis and Barbara Young and to
the WaterColor Butterfly Garden.
Nominate gardens that appeal to you. It can even be your
own! Deadline is April 30. Call Jane Anger at 654-5783
who chairs the event this year.

Seaside Repertory


grant proposal


Seaside Repertory The-
atre, the premier profes-
sional theatre company of
Northwest Florida, an-
nounced recently that The
St. Joe Community Founda-
tion (STJCF) approved a
grant proposal that will aid
Seaside Rep's ongoing efforts
to increase its prominence as
a Southeastern regional the-
atre. STJCF is committed to
enhancing the quality of life
within the region, which in-
cludes support for proven
cultural arts initiatives.
As the sole professional
theatre company on the Em-
erald Coast, Seaside Rep
strives to bring theatrical
excellence and exposure to
the residents and guests of
Northwest Florida.
The STJCF grant consists
of 3 phases, beginning with
a first year grant of $15,000.
Subsequent grants will be
awarded during the next two
years contingent on Seaside
Rep achieving specific goals
established with STJCF.
Planned efforts include tour-
ing children's shows to
schools in Northwest Florida,
extending programming
months beyond Seaside Rep's
current 6 month season, ex-
panding support staff within
the organization, and in-


creasing membership and
audience base. The intent of
the STJCF grant is to provide
Seaside Rep with the ability
to become a sustainable, self-
sufficient organization.
"We are thrilled with the
opportunities that the grant
will provide," stated Jennifer
Steele, managing director of
Seaside Repertory Theatre.
"The additional support will
allow Seaside Rep to con-
tinue to grow and expand its
reach far beyoiid our current
capacity. The St. Joe Commu-
nity Foundation's commit-
ment to providing a positive
impact on our community is
in line with Seaside Rep's
own goals and we are ex-
tremely excited about this
joint venture."
"Our region's already ben-
efited from the exceptional
theatrical performances of
the Rep," said Pamela Selton,
executive director of The St.
Joe Community Founda-
tion.
"We welcome this opportu-
nity to help them strengthen
their capacity; to increase
their audience throughout
the region. We applaud their
efforts and look forward to
more compelling theater dur-
ing the next three years."

Support voiced for terminated dispatcher


By DOTTY NIST
"She wasn't treated
fair...give her her job back,"
Herman Crishon urged the
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners on
March 22.
Crishon, a frequent outspo-
ken critic of county person-
nel policies, was referring to
Jennifer Tibbs, a former
county 911 dispatcher.
Tibbs was recently termi-
nated by Walton County
Emergency Response after
she made critical statements
publicly about her workplace,
including allegations that
employee training was defi-
cient. Her termination was
stated to be- based on prob-
lems with her job perfor-
mance.
"Why didn't you do it before
she blew the- whistle?"
Crishon asked the commis-
sioners.
Tibbs was present at the
meeting with other members
of the public.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows asked Gary
Mattison, county human re-
sources director, if the.deci-,
sion to fire Tibbs was subject


to appeal.
Mattison responded that it
was not, since Tibbs was still
serving in her initial proba-
tionary period. Personnel can
be terminated at any time
during this period at the dis-
cretion of their supervisor
without the possibility of ap-
peal.
Meadows was of the opin-
ion that Tibbs had fallen vic-
tim to a bad situation,:not of
her making, in the work-
place.
"Can we vote to reinstate
her?" she asked Mattison.
He responded that it would
be necessary to go back'to the
hiring process.
County Commission Chair
Kenneth Pridgen interjected
that in his opinion the Board
of County Commissioners
"does not need to be doing
that."
After Tibbs and two of her
former co-workers spoke oht
against conditions at the
county Emergency Opera-
tions Center a month ago, the
commissioners voted to ini-
tiate a study to evaluate the
functioning of the center.
Bill Imfeld. cou n'tN finance c
director, reported ,that four


consulting firms had since
expressed an interest in do-
ing the study.
County Administrator
Ronnie Bell asked if the con-
sultants would look at issues
with the employees as part of
the study, which is to include
processes, training programs
and how to improve opera-
tions.
"I think we need to look at
,employee issues as part of
that," Meadows urged.
Imfeld responded that em-
ployee issues could be in-
cluded at the commissioners'
direction.
Bell noted that there had
been discussion of holding a
public workshop on the mat-
ter of county employee reten-
tion. A workshop on that
topic was scheduled for 1:30
p.m. on Tuesday, April 12.
The workshop will be fol-
lowed bj one on Municipal
Benefit Service Units at 3
p.m. and then by the BCC
-regular meeting at 4 p.m.
The location will be the.Wal'-
ton County Courthouse in
DeFuniak Springs.

third special- purpose district
of its kind.
Somerset Community De-
velopment District (CDD)

Alys Beach property, which is
located west of the Seacrest
Beach planned unit develop-
ment.
The special purpose dis-
brict was approved at the
March 22 Walton County
Board of County Comnmis-
3ioners (BCC) meeting'at the
request of Brian Crumbaker,


an attorney representing
EBSCO, a development com-
pany for the Alys Beach sub-
division.
Alys Beach is currently
under construction.
Crumbaker explained that
the CDD will have a single
purpose: community develop-
ment; and'will operate only
within the bounds of the spe-
cial district. The district will
levy special assessments on
property owners in order to
finance water, sewer, beach
nourishment, parks and rec-
reational facilities, security

"It's a form of government,"
he added.
Roads will not be included
in the CDD, Crumbaker said,
but they will be private for
the time being.
Notice of the special assess-
ments will be provided to
landowners in the CDD,
Crumbaker explained, and
there will be a public hear-
ing process for those owners.
Consent rejoinders have
been obtained for the CDD

Company's WaterSound

the Freeport area.
By state statute CDDs
Must be compact and of a
sufficient size to be developed
_ as a functional community.
District 4 Commissioner
S_ Ro Cuchens asked why other
large developments in the
unincorporated areas such as
Sandestin and Tops'l had not
applied for approval as
CDDs.
County attorney Gary
Vorbeck explained that, in
I IMa those instances, the develop-
ers had chosen to fund com-
S munity development and fa-
cilities themselves rather
thari assessing property own-
ers.
U P id The CDD will be governed
IrVoVIUdr by a board of supervisors.
The initial board is to include
Aaron Papero, Britton
Bartlett, George Hartley,
Sharon Robertson, and Jason
