New density areas planrn


for central, north Walton


By TIANA LARSEN
When the comprehensive
plan for managing growth in
Walton County was adopted
in 1996, different land use
districts were created for
south Walton and for the rest
of the county north of
Choctawhatchee Bay.
The land use districts
north of the bay were based
on agricultural uses and low
density, rural development.
Now that development is
rapidly moving northward, a
new, medium density land
use district is under consid-
eration for addition to the
comprehensive plan. Called
"North Bay Neighborhood
Planning Areas" (NBNPA,)
the Board of County Com-
missioners (BCC) will make
a decision on this district at
their April 18 meeting.
If the BCC approves, the
amendment creating the new
land use will be sent on to the
Department of Community
Affairs for state approval.
In its current form, three
categories are included, de-
pending on the size of the
parcel. Small sites would al-
low residential at up to six
units per acre, medium size
sites would allow mixed resi-
dential and neighborhood-
serving commercial, and
sites greater than 100 acres
would allow "rural town cen-
ters."
This last category is con-
templated for 2,790 acres lo-
cated north of CR-3280 and
south of Black Creek. This is
land recently sold off by
Nokuse Plantation as the
conservation area was con-
solidated into a linked wild-
life corridor.
The new owners, Black
Creek LLC and Black Creek
Plantation LLC, have ap-
plied to have the land
changed from large scale ag-
riculture to NBNPA rural
town center. On April 7, the
Walton County Planning
Commission recommended
approval; the BCC will make
a final decision on April 18.
Jennifer Christensen, the
developer's representative,
told the planning commission
that the development will be
clustered to support the con-
servation in the area. The


wetlands, which comprise
about 600 acres of the site,
will be left undisturbed.

A core area of higher-den-
sity mixed uses will radiate
outwards, with the lower
density residential areas lo-
cated at the perimeter of the
site, she explained.
According to the proposed
ordinance creating the rural


town district, each plan of
development shall address
issues such as roads with a
rural character, pedestrian
interconnections, vegetation
and wildlife, lighting stan-
dards that preserve the ru-
ral character of the area, con-
nection to public water and
sewer, and a 50-foot height
limitation.
If both the creation of the


new category and the change
for the particular site near
Black Creek are approved by
the BCC and the Department
of Community Affairs, a de-
tailed development plan for
any actual construction
would also need approval at
two public hearings in the
future. The developer antici-
pates a 10-15 year build out
timeline.


THIS MAP SHOWS the location of 2,790 acres of land, north of CR-3280 and south of
Black Creek, which has been recommended for a land use designation change that would
allow development of a "North Bay Neighborhood Planning Area Rural Town Center." The
site is surrounded by conservation land, including Nokuse Plantation and a large tract of
land owned by the Northwest Florida Water Management District.


County moving forward

with McCombs proposal

for Mossy Head park


By DQTTY NIST
The'western 50-acre por-
tion of the Mossy Head In-
dustrial Park property could
S| soon be the site of RV World,
a recreational vehicle sales,
storage and service business.
In a four to one vote on
April 12, the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
j sioners (BCC) voted to move
forward with Roger
McCombs' proposal to estab-
lish RV World on the unde-
veloped county-owned prop-
erty, which lies about a dozen


miles west of DeFuniak
Springs.
McCombs owns a number
of businesses locally, includ-
ing the Lucky 13 Truck Stop,
also in the Mossy Head area.
McCombs told the commis-
sioners that RV World would
bring 150 jobs to the county.
The average pay for the jobs
would be $23,400 per year, he
explained.
McCombs estimated that
RV World would cost him $7

See PROPOSAL Page 4A


By LIZ SINCLAIR
At its April 11 meeting, the
DeFuniak Springs City
Council took a first look at an
ordinance that would allow
more commercial signs anid
sent it back to the city man-
ager for more specific lan-
guage., The council will hear
the reworked ordinance on
April 25.
The amendment to the sign
ordinance would allow for
multiple ground signs on
properties with multiple road
frontages in commercial
zones. The original ordinance
allowed for one ground sign
and two building signs.
The council asked for more
specific language in the
amendment where it read
"The square footage of all
signs shall not exceed the to-
tal square footage as set forth
in this chapter."
Responding to the question
from Councilman Roy
McLeod, City Manager Mike
Standley said this was 64
square feet in commercial
districts and- 1,000 in indus-
trial. The ordinance says that
the signs must be 100 feet
apart.
* Councilman James
Huffman, using Crestview as
an example, said he would
prefer that the sign ordi-
nances become more restric-
tive, rather than more re-
laxed.
The council agenda also
included:

The first reading of an or-
dinance amendment that
changes the fees charged to


subdivision developers from
$25 to all costs incurred by
the city for plan review, site
inspections, testing, survey-
ing, recording and associated
fees.
The adoption of a resolu-
tion of agreement between
USDA Rural .Development
and the city to furnish funds
to build a hangar at the city
airport for Monarch Aviation,
an avionics/ electronics busi-
ness. The USDA will provide
$198,000 to the building,
with Florida Enterprise pro-
viding and additional
$84,000. The grants are to
promote economic activity in
the city. Moharch will employ
ten people locally.
Peters Municipal Asso-
ciated provided design esti-
mates for street resurfacing
and reconstruction on Rail-
road, Fredrick, Jacquelin and
Ard streets, as well as
Springs East Drive.
Freeport Industries
made a request to have prop-
erty annexed into the city.
The property is located be-
tween Bob Sikes Road to the
south and the airport to the
north. The process will re-
quire a public hearing.
Tom Novak and Wanda
Moy have requested that
property located at 1674
Hwy. 90, at the corner of
Chabot Drive, be changed
from residential zoning to
commercial to be used for a
financial service business. A
public hearing date of May 9
was set. The hearing will be
held before the planning
board.


County officials dedicate new EMS station in DFS


By RON KELLEY
County officials gathered
to dedicate the new head-
quarters for Walton County
EMS, located next to the
county's Emergency Opera-
tions Center on Davis Lane
in DeFuniak Springs. Emer-


agency Response offices and
the county's GIS offices will
also be housed in the 25,000
square foot building.
For many years, the EMS
offices were housed, in a few
ramshackle portable build-
ings next to the DeFuniak


Springs Fire Station, just of
Hwy. 83N.
EMS Director Matt
Douglass said, "The new
headquarters are great and
it's something we've needed
for a long time. We're very
pleased."


On Friday, April 8, county
officials, EMS staff,
firefighters and well-wishers
gathered to celebrate the
dedication.
County Administrator
Ronnie Bell welcomed the


guests and talked about how
far the EMS department has
come since his first days as a
county EMT. Walton County
Commission Chairman Ken
Pridgen also talked about the
advantages the new building


would provide for EMS and
the county's emergency re-
sponse operations during:
storms and emergencies.

PERSONAL COMMENTS


Editor's Comment


The sun shines on the government


By RON KELLEY
Open government it's a bit of a contradiction in terms.
That is, the government, operating under the so-called Pa-
triot Act, wants all records and files on citizens to be an
o. open-book, instantly available to their operatives. However,
when it comes to their own files, the shroud of secrecy sud-
denly de;cei'1-. leaving the public in the dark as to just
What th,:"- .,. t-inui nt is doing.
I I 1eccJ:'. AJ.-,' r-ri li.ut the percentage of documents
: relean-t. It. :c .k government agencies has decreased,
while the number of documents hidden through 'creative
classification' has increased significantly. Newspapers all
over Florida are i.kini about it.
When Con re.-.- created the Department of Homeland
Security, it crippled a part of the Freedom of Information
Act by allowing companies to hide important safety and
health documents from the public by calling it "critical in-
frastructure."
Not everyone in government is in favor of this kind of
cloak and dagger subterfuge. Republican Senator John
Cornyn of Tex.is and Senator Patrick Leahy, a Democrat
from Vernunt. have come out strong against this subver-
sive effort.
The two men sponsored a bill designed to strengthen the
Freedom of Information Act. One part of the bill actually
penalizes agencies for missing the deadlines for respond-
ing to records requests.
SA Senate panel recently endorsed another piece of legis-
lation by Cornyn and Leahy to create an advisory commis-

tect national security, but 'national security' should not be
a blanket that can be tossed over the workings of govern-
ment any time some group or agency doesn't want you to
know what they're doing.
In Florida, we take the sunshine laws for granted, but
the right signature on the bottom of a page can make it all
go away.
Public records violations happen in Tallahassee and right
here in Walton County. It happened to me a few months
ago with a certain emergency response agency who did not
release all the information they were required to by law
and delayed releasing the information longer than they
should have. I made the decision not to notify state authori-
ties because the mistakes were caused as much by staff in-
eptitude as by a stubborn refusal to act in good faith.
Some readers may think that this is simply a "media com-
plaint" and doesn't affect them.
Think again.
Ordinary citizens make more public records request than
reporters. It's not a press issue, it's. a people issue and it's
up to you, the voters, the taxpayers, the promise keepers,
to keep America in the sunshine or else we may all find
ourselves in the dark.




Dear Editor,
As you all know, I have been involved for the past year in
making our roadways, especially the intersections at U.S.
98 and CR-395 and U.S. 98 and CR-283 safer. I-have re-
cently been called a safety activist on this matter.
This letter is written to hopefully clarify several issues
that have recently been brought to my attention or have
been written in our local papers.
First of all my thanks goes out to our Walton County Com-
missioners for their efforts in making these intersections
safer. Without the commissioner's actions, these intersec-
tions would not have the safety devices and measures in
place today. While I do not feel the devices installed at this
point are the real solutions and I am hopeful that the traf-
fic lights will be installed in the near future; I am still thank-
ful for what we have. In fact, since the action of our com-
missioners, no fatalities have occurred.
Second, Ronnie Bell, the administrator for Walton County
has been outstanding. Mr. Bell has always worked diligently
to make these intersections safer. Ronnie has had his hands
tied by the Florida Department of Transportation, and yet,
continues to make efforts to expedite the installment of per-
manent safety devices. .
Third. I believe our sheriff's department has also doe' a "
fine job. I believe the sheriff and his staff have been in-
vited to the table 'late in the game. Their efforts at these
intersections have reduced the numbers of accidents and
have saved lives. I know staffing of these off duty officers
is tough and an obstacle. In numerous requests by myself
and other members of our community, the requests have
been made to get the Florida Highway Patrol-to assist with
this endeavor. The fact remains that this is a state road-
way and it is the responsibility of state officials to make it
safe. I have never faulted our sheriff or his staff and will
never do so.
I have always said, and will say again, through my work
on this situation, it is my understanding that the State De-
partment of Transportation dropped the ball on the safety
of these intersections. The fault lies with them and only
them. The Walton County Sheriff's Department and our
commissioners have stepped up to alleviate some of the prob-
lems at these intersections and that has not gone unno-
ticed.
Over the past year and a half, I have contacted our gover-
nor, the DOT, senators, state representatives, and our county
officials: In over 30 correspondences by and between my-
self and the above mentioned, the only real action has come
from our county officials. The DOT and our higher govern-
ment officials continue to ignore our efforts and pass the
responsibility to our county officials. This is wrong.
It is time for the state to assist with these efforts. We
must demand that we get noticed. CR -395 serves as a main
thoroughfare for thousands of travelers each and every day.
It serves as a connector road for three schools, two churches,
a post office, a major grocery store and countless other busi-
nesses and places of interest. Our citizen's safety is a pri-
ority.
In closing, I wish to thank again, our county commission-
ers, Ronnie Bell, Sheriff Johnson and his staff and the other
members of this community who have stepped foreword to
assist with this situation.

Editor,
I wish to proudly inform your readers that April is Con-
federate History Month. Not too long ago, Southern Gover-
nors proclaimed this period with verve just like they pro-
claim National Pickle Weeks today. Of course it is not politi-
cally correct to honor those heroes of yesteryear as they are
among the timid.
Southerners should understand that the Confederacy had
one of the noblest armies ever to take the field and they were
in fact the last of the chivalrous Knights.
Winston Churchill said that the Confederate army's fight
against overwhelming odds was one of the most glorious
moments in Anglo-Saxon history. H. L. Menchen, the sage
of Baltimore, said that the only thing wrong with Lincoln's
Gettysburg Address was that is was the South, not the North,
that was fighting for a government of the people, by the
people and for the people.
The Confederacy fought for a great cause independence,
the right of self-government and the rule of law. Those are
good principles so worth fighting for that it is no wonder
Yankee propaganda continues to repeat the falsehood that
my ancestors were fighting to preserve slavery.
All TRUE Southerners should stand tall with me and pre-
serve the good name of the "Boys in Grey" who sacrificed
their lives for the sake of liberty and independence as mine
did.

million to construct. Under
an economic development
agreement drafted by county
staff, the county would pro-
vide the land to the business
owner free of charge. He
would in turn provide $7
million of infrastructure on
the parcel.
McCombs expects the busi-
ness to produce about $17
million in sales yearly.
In addition to sales, storage
and service for RVs, there are
plans for a 10,000-square-
foot RV accessory store, a
"nationally recognized" res-
taurant, and a Walton
County welcome center in
conjunction with the busi-
ness.
"I think this is a good
project," said District 3 Com-
missioner Larry Jones, who
had participated with pro-'
ponents of the RV business in
a series of meetings prior to
the April 12 BCC decision.
County Commission Chair
Ken Pridgen concurred. He
commented that any time
such a large number of jobs
can be created in Walton
County, "it's going to be good
for the county."
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows however
spoke to the need for a "cost
benefit analysis."
She further asked, "Are
these the only candidates for
the property?"
In fact; they were not.
Gerald and Pat Wallens of
Higher Standard Realty and
Homes had made their own
proposal for the same prop-
erty on March 22. The
Wallens' proposal involves a
100,000-squ-are-foot manu-
facturing plant, single-fam-
ily and multifamily
housing,a motel, a golf,
course and other facilities.
Jones had responded to
that proposal by recommend-
ing that the plant, housing
and other facilities be

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.
THE SOUTH WALTON FIRE DISTRICT (SWFD) is ask-
ing all citizens/visitors to the area to.heed the Double Red

planned for the east side of
the site instead. However,
Wallens said he would prefer
the west side because of the
increased visibility.
Jones was confident that
both businesses could be ac-
commodated in the park
through working together
with the county on location
and other arrangements.
Both businesses own prop-
erty adjoining the county in-
dustrial park site.
In addition to the RV busi-
ness that is the subject of the
draft agreement, McCombs
also has ideas for
Raceworld, an automotive
and trailer retail outlet/dis-
tribution center, and a pre-
cast concrete production fa-
cility on other portions of the
industrial park property,
which encompasses over 200
acres in totality.
Meadows commented that,
as a representative of the
taxpayers, she felt responsi-
bility to'know more about the
RV business proposal before
voting to proceed. She also
questioned whether the
county had procedural guide-
lines to put in place in cir-
cumstances such as this, par-
ticularly in view of interest
by more than one party in the
same site.
A motion by District 4
-Commissioner Ro Cuchens to
proceed with drawing up a
contract with McCombs car-
ried with Meadows casting
he only "nay" vote.
A decision, on the finaliza-
tion of the contract will take
place in a public BCC ses-
sion.

In the meantime, County
Administrator Ronnie Bell
plans to meet with the
Wallenses to discuss their
proposal. Bell also noted that
he will work on the proce-
dural guidelines that Mead-
ows had suggested.,

Lakeside concert at St. Agatha's draws full house


By BRUCE COLLIER
A pair of talented musi-
cians from Venezuela enter-
tained a packed house last
Sunday. St. Agatha's Episco-
pal Church's Lakeside Con-
cert Series hosted pianist
Michelle Tabor and violinist
Alfonso Lopez.
The concert began at 3 p.m.
in the church. Audience
members of all ages sat in
pews and in extra chairs.

into sixth-

grade night

to be held
An orientation night will be
held at Walton Middle School
on April 14, 2005 from 6:30
p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
This is an opportunity to
meet teachers and adminis-
trators and find out about
activities, programs, and
sports available for all new
sixth-graders arriving at
Walton Middle School for the
2005-2006 school year. Par-
ents and students are en-
couraged to attend.


dow.
The first half of the con-
cert featured two pieces. The
first was "Praeludium and
Allegra in the style of
Pugnani," by Austrian com-
poser and violinist Fritz
Kreisler (1875 1962).
Kreisler composed this piece
as a musical tribute to Ital-
ian composer Gaetano
Pugnani (1731 1798), who
was also a violinist.
The second piece of the
first half was "Sonata No. 1,
Op. 78 in G Major," by Ger-
man composer Johannes
Brahms (1833 1897).
Following intermission,
part two of the program fea-
tured the works of three
composers.
First were "Playera, Op.


23, No. 1," and "Romanza
Andaluza, Op. 22, No. 1," by
Spanish composer Pablo de
Sarasate (1844 1908). Pia-
nist Tabor described these
works as -evocative of the
province of Andalusia.
The second selection was
"Three Pieces for Violin," by
Mexican composer Silvestre
Revueltas (1899 1940).
Closing the main program
were two works, "Pampeana
No. 1" and "Rhapsody for
Violin and Piano," both byAr-
gentine composer Alberto
Ginastera (1916 1983).
Tabor, who has studied
and written about Ginastera
and other Latin American
composers, described these
works as mood pieces, musi-
cal depictions of the Argen-

tine grassland (pampas) and
the people who live and work
on it.
A standing ovation after
the program earned the au-
dience an encore perfor-
mance from the duo.
"Por Una Cabeza," ("By a
Head"), by Argentine Carlos
Gardel (1890 1935), closed
the performance. Violinist
Lopez described Gardel as a
well-known movie star and
performer in Argentina,
whose life and career were
tragically cut short by an air-
plane crash in 1935.
The piece is a tango,
Argentina's gift to world mu-
sic and dance: "Por Una
Cabeza" tells the story of a
man who bet everything on
a horse race, only to lose "by
a head."
Lopez said that American
audiences have heard this
piece played in Martin
Brest's 1992 film "Scent of a
Woman." Al Pacino dances
the tango to it in a New York
ballroom.
A reception followed in the
parish hall, allowing audi-
ences to meet the musicians.
The next offering in the
Lakeside Conert Series will
be New Orleans-born colora-
tura soprano Hallie White.
White will perform at St.
Agatha's on May 22.
Admission to the Lakeside
Concerts is free, with dona-
tions accepted. For more in-
formation, call St. Agatha's at
892-9754.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
Board of County Commissioners of Walton County, Florida

NatureWalk Community Development District

TIME: 4:15 p.m. (CST)
LOCATION: Courtroom B
.-* .Walton County Courthouse

DeFurnak. SpringsFlorida ,

Interested persons are advised that a public hearing will be held on the 10th day of May, 2005, at
4:15 p.m. at the Walton County Courthouse, 571 U.S. Highway 90, DeFuniak Springs, Florida,
before the Board of County Commissioners' to consider the elements of a Petition filed by
NatureWalk Development Company, LLC ("Petitioner"), to establish a community development dis-
trict to be known as the NatureWalk Community Development District ("District"), as authorized and
provided for in Chapter 190, Florida
Statutes. A copy of the Petition is on file
and available for public inspection and/or
copying at the Office of the Clerk of
Court, Walton County Courthouse, 571
U.S. Highway 90, DeFuniak Springs,
Florida, between the hours of 8:00 a.m.
and 4:30 p.m. except on weekends and
holidays.
The information presented at this hear-
ing will be used to afford the Petitioner,
landowners, any affected units of local
government, and the general public, a fair
and adequate opportunity to appear and
present oral and written comments. ,
regarding the establishment of the
District. If adopted, the ordinance will Seagrve
establish the NatureWalk Community ",
Development District, name its initial 3
Board of Stipervisors and designated the
land to be serviced by the District. Gulf of thIe .
The land area proposed to be served y
by the District is surrounded by the Point
Washington State Forest on its north, south and east boundaries. A small portion of the west
boundary of the land fronts the east side of County Road 395, the northern portion of the west
boundary is bordered by the Point Washington State Forest, and the southern portion of the west
boundary is bordered by the Watercolor DRI. The District will comprise approximately 153.04 acres
of land. The boundaries of the lands proposed to be served by the District are outlined in the map
depicted in this notice. There is no real property located within the boundaries of the District that
will be excluded from the jurisdiction of the District. The Petitioner has proposed that the District will
construct or acquire certain infrastructure improvements in order to serve a development commonly
referred to as the NatureWalk at Seagrove development.
.By way of information, a community development district is a local unit of special purpose govern-
ment authorized by statute to ensure the provision of infrastructure to serve community develop-
ments subject to state and local regulatory requirements governing the lawful use and development
of the property. Establishment of a district pursuant to Chapter 190, Florida Statutes, is not a devel-
opment order under Chapter 380, Florida Statutes. All planning, permitting and other regulatory
requirements pertaining to development within the land area will be in accordance with general and
special law, and the Walton County Comprehensive Plan.
The Board will comply with section 190.005(2), Florida Statutes, in conducting the public hearing
on whether to establish the District by ordinance. The purpose of this hearing is to consider tha
relationship of the petition as submitted by the Petitioner to the six factors listed in section
190.005(1)(e), Florida Statutes.
A statement of estimated regulatory costs ("SERC") was prepared by Rizzetta & Company, Inc.,
in compliance with Section 120.541, Florida Statutes, as required by section 190.005, Florida
Statutes. The complete text of the SERC is contained as Exhibit 8 to the Petition. By way of sum-
mary, the SERC estimates that the principal entities likely to be effected by the ordinance are the
State of Florida, Walton County, Flofida, and the District, and describes the type of individuals most
affected by the ordinance as the landowners within the District. The SERC estimates that establish-
ment and enforcement costs to the above-described entities will be modest and are concurrently
budgeted or not burdensome; and, that there will be little to no effect on state and local revenues
from the establishment of the District. Further, the SERC estimates that certain development-
related transactional costs incurred would occur regardless of whether the District was established
and are voluntarily assumed if at all by and through individuals or entities owning or purchasing
property in the District. Finally, the SERC concludes that the establishment's affect on small busi-
ness will be minimal or positive and the Walton County is neither a small city nor county as defined
by section 120.52, Florida Statutes.
Interested persons are advised that, if a person decides to appeal any decision made by
the County Commission with respect to any matter considered at a hearing, he or she will
need a record of the proceedings, and that, for such purpose, he or she may need to ensure
that a verbatim record of the proceedings is made, which record includes the testimony and
evidence upon which the appeal is to'be based.
Persons needing special accommodations to attend any hearing noticed hereinabove as a
result of a disability must contact Ronnie Bell, County Administrator, at 850-892-8156, not
less than forty-eight (48) hours before a hearing or meetings in order to make arrangements.

DOH warns of risks to water supply due to flooding


Flooding related to storms,
especially if accompanied by
a tidal surge, can contami-
niate the public water supply.
Drinking contaminated wa-
ter may cause illness. Indi-
viduals cannot assume that
the water in the hurricane-
affected area is safe to drink.
Although water treatment
plants may be operating,
flooding can contaminate
water lines.
:If a well has been flooded,
it needs to be tested and dis-
infected after the storm
passes and the floodwaters
recede. Questions about test-
ing should be directed to lo-
cal or state health depart-
ment.
Safe drinking water in-
cludes bottled, boiled or
treated water. State or local


April is
'During April, the Florida
Department of Health (DOH)
recognizes Sexually Trans-
mitted Diseases (STD)
Month by encouraging Flo-
ridians to become informed
ahd empowered by knowing
about STD infections, meth-
ods of prevention, signs and
symptoms, treatments avail-
able, and services offered to
the local communities as part
of public health.
;"Crossing both geographic
apd socio-economic bound-
aries, these infections bring
the potential for long-term
negative health outcomes for
individuals who go undiag-
nosed and untreated," said
DOH Secretary John 0.
Agwunobi, M.D., M.B.A.,
M.P.H. "Prevention and
early detection are important
aspects of intervention in the
control these diseases."
STDs can be either bacte-
rial or viral in nature, and
some infections can be unrec-
ognized because they do not
display any signs or symp-
toms to the individual. If un-
treated, long-term health af-
fects may occur inclhrdirig in-
fertility, pelvic inflammatory
disease neurologicali am-


health department can make
specific recommendations for
boiling or treating drinking
water in your area. Here are
some general rules concern-
ing water for drinking and
cooking. Remember:
Do not use contaminated
water to wash dishes, brush
teeth, wash and prepare food
or make ice.
*If using bottled water,
know where it came from.
Otherwise, water should be
boiled or treated before use.
Drink only bottled, boiled or
treated water until the sup-
ply is tested and found safe.
Boiling water kills harm-
ful bacteria and parasites..
Bringing water to a rolling
boil for one minute will kill
most organisms.
*Water may be treated


with chlorine or iodine tab-
lets or by mixing eight drops
(1/8 teaspoon) of unscented,
ordinary household chlorine
bleach (5.25 percent sodium
hypochlorite) per gallon of
water. Mix the solution thor-
oughly, and let stand for
about 30 minutes. However,
this treatment will not kill
parasitic organisms.

It is important to disinfect
both the well and plumbing
with chlorine bleach to en-
sure that all infectious
agents are killed. For water
treatment devices, remove
all membranes, cartridges
and filters and replace them
after the chlorination process
is completed.
Common unscented laun-
dry bleach can be used effec-


tively as a chlorine disinfec-
tant.
The only way to verify that
the water is safe to drink is
to have it tested. Although
chlorine bleach is effective
against microorganisms, it
will not remove chemical con-
tamination that may have
gotten into your well. Contact
the Walton County Health
Department for sampling in-
structions to get well water
tested.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 14, 2005


Cotillion

comes to

Walton

County

The National Lc.,.iii of
Junior Cotillions NI_.TC), a
program of etiquette, charac-
ter education and social
dance training for middle and
junior high school students,
has announced plans to ex-
pand its program in Florida
to include Walton County.
Anne Colvin Winters,
NLJC national director said,
"We will be selecting a direc-
tor for a local chapter who
will receive complete training
and an exclusive territory for
expansion."
Because of today's competi-
tive and ever changing soci-
ety, and the growing trend of
the lack of courtesy and re-
spect in many schools, NLJC
is dedicated to making tools
available to regain a sense of
honor, dignity, and respect in
young people.
The purpose of the Na-
tional League of Junior Cotil-
lions' program is to give stu-
dents instruction and prac-
tice in the courtesies that
make life more pleasant for
them and those around them.
Students actively learn cour-
tesies through a creative
method employing role play-
ing, skits, and games. Stan-
dard ballroom and line danc-
ing is taught using nation-
ally-approved top 40 music.
In addition to the usual
courtesies connected with
dancing, etiquette and char-
acter instruction are also pro-
,vided regarding the follow-
ing: honor, respect, ethics,
sportsmanship, acknowledg-
ment of gifts, behavior at cul-
tural and civic events, corre-
spondence, interaction in
groups, introductions, paying
and receiving compliments,
receiving lines, table man-
ners, instructional dinners,
telephone courtesy, and many
other areas of social conduct.
In addition to Junior Cotil-
lion, NLJC offers three re-
lated programs: Pre-Cotillion
for grades K-5, high school for
grades 9-12, and a Corporate
Cotillion program for adults.
NLJC has also been featured
on several national television
networks.
The program, with head-
quarter in Charlotte, North
Carolina, was established in
1979 and has licensed local
cotillions nationwide. The co-
tillion includes five monthly
classes plus a Holy Ball and
Spring Ball. "The program
has met with equal success in
metropolitan areas including
Atlanta, Orlando, Minneapo-
lis, Houston, and in small
communities across the coun-
try. NLJC believe it will be an
important addition to the
training of young people in
this area," said Winters.
Application or nominations
for cotillion director are cur-
rently being received. For
additional information, call 1-
800-633-7947, visit
www.nljc.com or e-mail
cotillions@nljc.com.

MEET DR. JAMES WILLIS


if Many physicians today
now realize the impor-
tance of lreoting the
4 patient, rather than only
their symptoms, This

referred to as a "riolstic'
approach, is also c.llkd
osteopathic medicine. As
doctors of osteopatn.' (0.0.), these physicians
are providing important medical care to those
in need. One such physician who practices
asiteopairuic medicine is Dr. James Willis,
v.itri North Ok~iln.a Medical Center. We
recently discussed Dr. Willis -background
and philosophy as he continues to build his
practice and meet new patients.

DESCRIBE YOUR APPROACH TO MEDICINE
N,.. MOR,., ,SPECIFICALLY, DEALING_
WITH PATIENTS.
I was taught to treat the patient, rather than
only their symptoms. Its so important to look
terun'd the symptom or s:,ymptoin-s and take
the nlire situation into account. I address the
injury or the illness but I also ask what led
to the injury or what problems may have
caused an illness.. I often ask patients about
their larnily environment, their job or other
information that may be helpful when making
a dii.rinsis A perfect example is back pain -
which is often a very serious occupational
issue for many patients. If I can help address
what is causing the back pain, then perhaps I
can work with the patient and help them lake
steps to avoid back problems in the future.

DO YOU FEEL THIS APPROACHALLOWS YOU
TO SPEND MORE TIME WITH PATIENTS?
My very first alppoillment ,'itlh a new
patient usually lasts about an hour, and the
reason I devote that much time for the first
appoinitiveii is because its important to fully
assess the patients thalthcare status, medical
history, and lifestyle issues and discuss what
factors are important as we work together
to prioritize thlir medical needs, I get a lot of
positive feedback from patients who truly
aippreci~le the commitment of time, and'i hope
I can build long-lasting, trusting relationships
with them as a result of this approach.

WHAT DO YOU THINK MOST PATIENTS
SAY AFTER VISITING WITH YOU?
Well, I certainly hope they will have a positive
experience and tell a friend or relative about
it. I also hope they have an experience that
motivates them to suggest that others come to
visit my office. Word of mouth is a very important,
and powerful, method of communication,
and I hope that my philosophy of treating
people, not just symptoms, is something they
tell others about.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO ESTABLISH
YOUR PRACTICE HERE?
' I decided to open my practice herejor a couple
of reasons first, because I was based in the
Air Force nearby, and my family and I like


this area. Also, the area has been medically
underserved, and I saw a need for healthcare
and a great community of people who clearly
need dependable resources without needing to
travel long distances. By filling that void, I feel
as if I am playing an important role in this
community. I live here in town and have found,
quite simply, its a nice place to raise a family.
I want to not only serve the community as a
medical professional, but I very much want to
participate in the community as a citizen. I m in
a unique position, because I m fortunate
enough to meet' with other members of the
romnmnity on a daily basis. These people
share the same interests as I do in shaping the
quality of life in this area.

HOW HAS YOUR MILITARY BACKGROUND
INFLUENCED YOUR MEDICAL CAREER?
: Because there are many military retirees and
active duty families in the area, it has served as
an important way to build a strong bond with
the community. In addition, my background in
the military prepared me for family practice
because, while in training in the Air Force, I
worked with people of all ages, with a very broad
range of common medical issues every day.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE FAMILY PRACTICE
AS YOUR AREA OF SPECIALTY?
I ve noticed that building solid relationships
with individuals and the community helps to
build a successful family practice. I truly enjoy
meeting different people from different
.'.%iiks of life, An important part of my job is
,ducatiim peo:,ile about healthcare issues -
and I get the chance to do that on a daily basis.
As a former high school teacher, I can
combine my teaching skills with my medical
background through this job. Plus, it gives me
great satisfaction knowing that I am providing
an important service to the community.

YOU OFFER A VARIETY OF SERVICES
AND SPECIALIZE IN SEVERAL AREAS.
HOW CAN THE COMMUNITY BENEFIT
FROM YOUR EXPERTISE?
Well, I do offer a number of specialties, such
as pediatric and geriatric care. My services
also include immunizations, annual exams,
screenings, and flu shots. Other areas of focus
include sports medicine, weight management,
nutrition and occupational medicine. These are
all important, because they truly are associated
with-preventive medicine. Weight management,
for example, is critical because patients who
don t control their weight are at risk of
diabetes and heart disease. By helping them
attain and maintain a healthy weight through
nutrition and exercise, not only will I help them
feel better, but I can also prevent the onset of
future ailments. Many patients often don t
receive -thorough instruction about prcveitivt'
healthcare, which can lead to confusion or lack
of concern.
I think my emphasis on individual aiitenion
will help patients understand the importance of
taking responsibility for their health and allow
them to live healthier and happier lives.

Murder mystery dinner theater in DFS


Act4Murder is proud to
present a comedic murder
mystery, "Good Grape Hunt-
ing," on Saturday, April 30,
at the historic Hotel DeFu-
niak, located at 400 East
Nelson Avenue, in DeFuniak
Springs. This hilarious, mys-
terious story, revolves around
the family-owned Frudee
Family Winery, and their
quest for the perfect, albeit
unusual, grape.
The colorful Frudee Fam-
ily is made up of brothers
Doodie and Rudy Frudee,
their lovely wives Trudy and
Prudy, and their long-lost
second cousin twice-removed,


Judy Frudee. An uninvited
guest, Dr. Will Beabore, a
well-known wine critic, joins
them for the evening and
manages to cause quite a
commotion. Tasting their
new and very unusual wine
only seems to make matters
worse, and before the fun-
filled chaotic night is over,
there's a murder to solve!
The cash bar begins at
6:15, with dinner and the
show beginning at 7 p.m. The
menu consists of a choice of
a mixed field green or caesar
salad, trout filet over rice,
smoked pork loin with garlic
mashed potatoes, or chicken
montrachet over au gratin

Our family at
Pleasant Grove Baptist Church
would like to invite you to join us in worship.
Our theme for revival is "Consumed With Hope".
We are all praying for an exciting series of mes-
sages from Brother Larry McFadden from Orlando, \ -
Florida.
Larry is truly a man who I believe is "Consumed
With Hope." He has a wonderful testimony to go
along with his calling to preach the gospel and a beautiful voice in
singing. Larry goes all over the world preaching the Word of God and
he will be here beginning Sunday morning, April 17 at 11 a.m., and
Sunday night at 6 p.m. We will meet Monday Wednesday, April
18-20 at 7 p.m. each night and a nursery will be provided. Please
come and worship our Lord with us and join us as we pray that all of
God's people will be truly "Consumed With Hope."
God Bless, Tony Dixon, pastor of Pleasant Grove Baptist Church

The Bible clearly states that Satan is the archenemy of
God and His people. There is no'controversy between Satan
and unsaved people. They are already part of his world sys-
tem. They have not been deliveredfrom the power of dark-
ness, not yet removed into the kingdom of Christ through
the power of the new birth in Christ.
Satan is also the foremost promoter of "religion." He en-
courages those religions that promote human excellence, that
deify mankind, and teach that man can eventually become
as God through his own goodness, and through his own ef-
forts. James urged believers to "resist the devil, and he will
flee from you" (James 4:7). But there is only one way we can
resist the devil and his temptations, and that is by yielding
to the Holy Spirit within us. Though Satan is inferior to
God, he is superior to mankind, and he cannot be conquered
by us alone.
The Christian's conflict with Satan is as fierce and un-
ceasing as Satan can make it. Before him,'we in ourselves
are as nothing. But God has anticipated our helplessness
before Satan, and He has provided the resources with which
we can overcome him. "Greater is He that is in you, than he
that is in the world: (1 John 4:4). Who is He that is within
us? The indwelling Holy Spirit! Thus, if we would overcome
the most vicious enemy of our souls, we must walk in the
Spirit. We must live our lives daily in the conscious pres-
ence of His power.

In Memory Of Brandon Lassiter


The following was found on a wooden plaque in
Brandon's things. It is taken from 1 Corinthians 13.
"Love is patient. Love is kind. It does not envy.
It does not boast ... It is not rude."

Love is not centered on one's self.

"Love is all we have, the only
way that each can help the other."
Euripedes

To everyone who gave your respect to Brandon, and to us
at the time of his death, April 8, 2004, we want you to
know we appreciate. your comforting presence, kind
remembrances, and the many different ways you showed
your concern at his passing. We do not want anyone's
kindness to go unnoticed. Please forgive us if that
happened but the circumstances were overwhelming.
God bless you,
Floria Lassiter

Members of the Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-day
Saints met recently to cel-
ebrate the 163rd anniversary
of the founding of the Relief

zation.
The Relief Society was es-
tablished under the hand of
Joseph Smith on March 17,
.1842 in .Nauvoo, IL, with a
membership of 20 women.
Today there are over 5.2 mil-
lion members throughout the
world, with 139 members in
the DeFuniak Springs orga-
nization. The Relief Society
* is the oldest women's organi-
zation in history. "Clh,-'ityv

the local group, introduced

tured in an historical capsule
that included a timeline of
their service, and the church
presidents with whom they
served in Salt Lake city. UT;
Also mentioned were some

Life's
Biggest
Regret
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC
Sponsored by T.P. Motors

You're in heaven, you're looking for someone you
cared about. You ask Jesus, "Lord, is
here?" What if He says, "Oh, did you bring her? Did
you bring him?" But you never asked him or her to go
with you.
We can't have any missed opportunities back, but
the future is yet to be written.
I want to turn my regrets for the past mistakes of
not telling someone about Jesus into a passion to be
sure I doh't make that mistake again.
You and I have been placed in the lives of some people
who are not ready for eternity.
God put us there to be their spiritual rescuer to
help connect them to Jesus. 2 Corinthians 5:11 says,
"Since we know what it is to fear the Lord, we try to
persuade men ... for Christ's love compels us.
You're the one God is counting on to deliver His life-
saving message to the people who are within your each.
Let your hope story open the door for you.
You only have to be God's glove with Him inside you
helping you to do and say what you could never do with-
out Him.
Life's biggest regret would be having to say, "I sh o u Id
have asked them to go with me."
You still can. There's still time!
8:45 a.m. Sunday Bible Study; 9:45 a.m. worship;
5:15 p.m. singing, and an evening with the pastor;
Wednesday 6 p.m. prayer/Bible Study
We will be having revival services April 15-17 with
International Evangelist Joseph Roman of Tampa, FL.
Please invite your Spanish friends to attend these
nights of refreshment, refilling, and regeneration. Ma-
rina Perona will be the interpreter for the services
which will begin 6:30 p.m. nightly. God is wanting to
take Freeport for His Glory. We can serve notice to
Satan's kingdom by attending these services, and ask-
ing others to follow us. Life is too short to stay away
from where the blessings are flowing, and they are in-
deed flowing here at the exciting Freeport UMC. Rev.
Robert Hagan will be preaching April 24-26. Don't miss
a service listening to and participating in these great
services.

fans in attendance at its
spring football game last
weekend as the Gator wide
receivers looked sharp in Ur-
ban Meyer's new offense.
Florida State will play
their spring game on Satur-
day, April 16. FSU has so
many injuries among offen-
sive lineman and wide receiv-


ers that it may be more of a
controlled scrimmage than a
competitive game.
OWC is 30-10 overall and
10-6 in the Panhandle Con-
ference in baseball competi-
tion as of Sunday, April 10.
The Raiders are tied with
Chipola and Tallahassee for

I had a chance to play in
the Rotary Club's two-mah
scramble golf tournament
held at the DeFuniak Springs
Country Club last Friday as&
twenty teams competed in
the event. My cousin and I
garnered a third place finish'
in the third flight on a beau'-
tiful day for golf. I took a four-
some to Sandy Pines Golf
. Club near Red Bay on; Sun-
day, but the extremely wet
conditions along with poor-
greens and fairways made for
a very exasperating outing.
The course could use a main-
tenance upgrade and dry
weather would definitely be
a plus as the course is built
on low, marshy land. '

Ben Kaim singled, stole
second, and scored on a wild
pitch with two out in the sev-

Gordon wins


By CHUCK HINSON
Jeff Gordon was bound and
determined to get the job
done at the Martinsville, VA,
track, and that is exactly
what he did this past week-
end. Gordon won the. Ad-
vance Auto Parts 500, after re
turning to NASCAR's first
visit to the track since the
Hendrick's Motorsports
plane crash nearby killed 10
team members and friends.
Ricky Hendricks and nine
others, including his son,
Ricky, were killed in that
crash.
After Gordon fell behind
early in the race, he began a
surprising comeback in the
224th lap and lead the rest of
the race for the most part. He
even started fourth on a re-
start with only 46 laps left to
go.
Despite this, Gordon
shocked the fans and made
an unbelievable comeback in
the few remaining laps to
take the top slot. The win
gave him his 71st career vic-
tory and his second in six
races this year.
The win was also his sixth
victory at the .526-mile track,
considered to be one of the
trickiest tracks in the NAS-
CAR line-up. Only Rusty
Wallace, with seven wins at
Martinsville, is the only
driver to have more wins
among drivers at the course.
Gordon's Chevrolet was fol-
lowed across the yellow finish
line by Kasey Kahne's Dodge
and then by Mark Martin's
Ford.
Choked up when being in-
Sterviewed in the winner's
circle by reporters, Gordon
commented that this race
was special becuase of what it
symbolized and what hap-
pened to his good friend
Ricky Hendricks and his
team.
Top 10 finishers included:
1) Jeff Gordon, No. 24 Chevy
2) Kasey Kahne, No. 9 Dodge
3) Mark Martin, No. 6 Ford


4) Ryan Newman, No. 12 Dodge
5) Rusty Wallace, No. 12 Dodge
6) Sterling Marlin, No. 40 Dodge
7) Ricky Rudd, No. 21 Ford
8)Jimmie Johnson, No. 48 Chevy
9) Elliott Sadler, No. 38 Ford
10) Joe Nemechek, No. 1 Chevy


WALTON TAEKWONDO
ACADEMY once again took
on the challenge and traveled
to Lakeland with three com-
petitors, who once again rep-
resented Walton County.
Students participating in
the competition included
(from left to right) Shelby
Thompson, purple belt, inter-
mediate division, took fourth
in forms and third in spar-
ring and will be testing for
her blue belt in April 2005;
Jackie Jordan II, first degree,
black belt division, took
third-place in both forms and
sparring, and will be testing
for his second-degree in April;
Cheyenne-Jordan, blue belt,
intermediate division, took
second-place in forms and
third-place in sparring, and
will also be testing in April
for her brown belt.
The academy is formally
invited to attend 2005 AAU
Taekwondo State Champion-
ships in Florida, April 30,
2005.

Officials-



discuss infill



land use


By TIANA LARSEN
A lengthy discussion about
the problematic land use dis-
trict "infill" dominated much
of the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) land use meeting on
April 5.'
Infill is a c4aegory that is
only available in south Wal-
ton. Projects at sites in this
land use district may develop
at eight units per acre, if pub-
lic water and sewer are avail-
able.
With south Walton prop-
erty now at record values and
with recent high demand in
the real estate market, a
record number of requests for
changes to a higher density
have been received by the
county planning department.
If a property is 10 acres or
less in size, a small scale
amendment is the process by
which a change can be made.
Small scale amendments
must be approved by the
BCC, and under state law,
only 80 acres per year can be
changed using this proce-
dure.
This year the applications
for small scale amendments
totaled 175 acres, so in Janu-
ary the planning department
held a lottery to prioritize 80
acres worth of applications.
Infill is by far the most
commonly requested new
land use category. In March
the planning commission
heard the first of the small
scale amendments and for-
warded them on to the BCC
for final approval or disap-
proval.
The remainder of the small
scale amendments that were
not chosen in the lottery have
been added on to the large
scale amendment currently
being heard by the planning
commission. (See related
story, Large Crowd Speaks
out On Growth.)
Of the six amendments
heard by the BCC, five re-
quested a change to infill,
with the sixth requesting a
change to village mixed use.

The county has made an
attempt to write a new ordi-
nance that would allow flex-
ibility in the number of units
allowed in the infill category,
but after being sent back to
the drawing board on March
1, the BCC continued the or-
dinance again at their April
5 meeting.
The proposed change
would allow 2,3,4,5,6,7, or 8
units per acre, depending on
criteria such as environmen-
tal factors and compatibility
of adjacent uses. The new or-
dinance would only apply to
properties that change to
infill from another category,
and the density would be as-
signed at the time of the
4 amendment. Land currently
mapped as infill would re-
main at eight units per acre.
In March, the BCC got
stuck on whether to look at
abutting, adjacent or neigh-
boring properties within
some undefined distance
when considering what the
appropriate density would be


for a particular property, and
what would be the criteria for
choosing a density.
While the ordinance is be-
ing debated, citizens con-
cerned with preserving their
neighborhoods are asking
whether the ordinance, if
passed, will apply to the flood
of amendments working
their way through the sys-
tem.
A large scale amendment
also in the works contains
another thirty requests for
land use changes; twenty of
these are requesting infill.
Local citizen Alan Ficarra
asked the BCC for assur-
ances that those amend-
ments, if passed, would be
subject to the proposed ordi-
nance containing lower den-
sities, but county legal staff
expressed concerns about
implementation.
Two of the amendments
considered by the BCC were
debated at length. A request
to change 0.677 acres on Nuit
Lane from residential preser-
vation to infill was opposed
by District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows, who repre-
- sents the district where the
site is located.
Meadows thought it was
spot zoning to up the density
in an area surrounded by
residential preservation (two
units per acre or one dwell-
ing per lot of record.) She
wanted to continue the
amendment until, the new
infill categories are in place,
but was outvoted.

"We may never pass an or-
dinance," remarked Commis-
sioner Larry Jones. "I think
it is unfair to the applicant,"
said Commissioner Ro
Cuchens. A motion to ap-
prove the amendment passed
4-1, with Meadows voting
nay.
Another proposed amend-
ment to infill on an acre on
Thompson Road also cur-
rently designated residential
preservation was voted down
by the BCC, who supported
a staff recommendation for
denial based on a number of
factors, including wet soils
and an incomplete traffic
study.
In other business at the
meeting, the former Echols
Auto site in Inlet Beach was
amended from light indus-
trial to infill. Five acres on
the corner of Chat Holley and
JD Miller Road was changed
to infill to accommodate a
townhome project. A site on
U.S.331 was also approved as
infill. A site on U.S.98 near
Moll Drive, proposing to
change to village mixed use,
was denied based on a rule
in the comprehensive plan
limiting the size of mixed use
centers.
Some development propos-
als also got a green light from
the BCC, including South
Walton Lutheran Church, to
be built on the west side of
CR-393 near Ridge Road in
Santa Rosa Beach, and The
Havens, a 28-townhome
project on U.S.98, west of
Sugar Drive.

f RIP CURRENT .



THIS DIAGRAM from the National Oceanic and Atmo-
spheric Association (NOAA) illustrates a typical rip current,
and the directions a swimmer should head in to escape it
instead of trying to swim back to shore against the current.

Rip currents


always a danger


By TIANA LARSEN
"Going camping without
being prepared to spend the
night," is how Scott Jackson,
Sea Grant extension agent,
described going swimming in
the ocean without checking
out the conditions and learn-
ing how to avoid or escape a
rip current.
Rip currents are some-
times called rip tides or un-
dertowvs, both incorrect
terms. Rip currents, do not
pull people under; they pull
them horizontally, out to sea.
But the rip current can be
very strong in shallow water,
causing a person to be
knocked over and make it
feel like something "under"
the water is pulling the per-
son down.
According to the National


Oceanic and Atmospheric
Association (NOAA,) people
get in trouble when they are
moved so far offshore that
they are unable to get back
to the beach. This may be due
to any combination of fear,
panic, exhaustion, or lack of
swimming skills.
NOAA says that rip cur-
rents are the leading surf
hazard for all beachgoers and
are responsible for over 100
drowning deaths in the
United States every year,
more than lightning, hurri-
canes and sharks put to-
gether. (Average annual
shark deaths, less than one.)
Rip currents can move very
fast and sweep even the
strongest swimmer out to

TYPICAL CLUES that a rip current is present, a channel
of churning, choppy water and a break in the incoming wave
pattern, can be seen in this photo. Rip currents can be very
narrow or extend in width to hundreds of yards. Photo cour-

Drainage systems

concern mosquito

control district


By TIANA LARSEN

"The approval of these sys-
tems must stop," said Gary
D'Andrea, director of the.
South Walton Mosquito Con-
trol District, in a letter to
Kelly Finney, planning man-
ager for Walton County.
D'Andrea was referring to
the practice of directing
stormwater runoff under in-
dividual homes, where it is
supposed to then percolate
into the ground.
Engineers began proposing
these systems last year.
Stormwater from individual
lots is directed into a shallow,
open area underneath the
home.
John Magee, a commis-
sioner on the mosquito con-
trol board, was filling an in-
terim seat on the planning
commission when three of
these developments were
under consideration last fall.
Magee raised concerns about
the systems during planning
commission meetings, and
while some of the planning
commissioners shared those
concerns with the idea of di-
recting stormwater under-
neath houses, the develop-
ments were approved.'
Since then more subdivi-
sions have been designed us-
ing this method. One of the
reasons the planning com-
mission gave for approval is
the fact that the Department
of Environmental Protection
(DEP), which issues
stormwater permits, is allow-
ing the practice.
"We do not feel it is con-
trary to our rules," said Sally
-Cooey, spokesperson for the
DEP. Cooey said the DEP is
requiring a two-foot separa-
tion between the finished
floor and the top of the bank
surrounding the basin under
the house.
The DEP is also requiring
some entity, such as a
homeowners association, to
be in place to perform long-
term maintenance.
Neither Magee nor
D'Andrea think this will
work. In a January email to
the Walton County Board of
County Commissioners


(BCC), Magee informed the
BCC that it has been brought
to the attention of the mos-
quito control board that a
class-action lawsuit has been
filed in Louisiana over ap-
proval of a similar subdivi-
sion.
"The property owners are
experiencing extensive dam-
age to the homes due to mold
and mosquitoes. These prop-
erty owners are holding the
planning department and
mosquito department liable
for the approval of the origi-
nal plans," Magee wrote.
D'Andrea thinks the idea
goes against common sense.
"Condos for adult mosqui-
toes," is how he described
moisture underneathhomes.
"They like cool, shaded ar-
eas. They will hang out there
and breed," he said, noting
that it only takes one week
for mosquitoes to reproduce.
During planning commis-
sion hearings, engineers gave
assurances that the basins
would drain into the ground
quickly and not contain
standing water. But
D'And i-ea doesn't think this
will be the case.
"The problem in this area
is that sediment fills the
pores," he said. The mosquito
control district is funded by
taxpayer dollars. D'Andrea
anticipates a large amount of1.,
money will be needed just to6'
check out these areas. Theq
money would have to com in:
from an increase in the mill
age rate, which is the fund;<
ing source for the mosquito
control district.
By law, the district must
provide mosquito control, but
access and maintenance are
two big issues. Property own-
ers must give permission,
and whether the systems will
be accessible, and who will fix
them if they are clogged, are
issues D'Andrea thinks will
be expensive.
"The residents are being
exposed to disease and
higher taxes," he stated.
D'Andrea wants the codes
changed to avoid these prob-
lems. "All drainage needs to

See DRAINAGE Page 13C"


Large crowd speaks out on growth


By TIANA LARSEN
A feisty, standing-room
only crowd turned out for the
first of two planning commis-
sion hearings on proposed
amendments to the county's
comprehensive plan.
The amendments are re-
quests to change allowable
land use classifications on
the future land use map
(FLUM,) which together with
the comprehensive plan gov-
erns how property can de-
velop.
The proposed amendments
are two parcels identified by
the county or by private own-
ers wishing to move from one
land use category to another.
The majority of the requests
are seeking higher densities
than those currently in place
on the properties.
(Walton County does not
have true "zoning," although
some people refer to these


amendments as "rezoning"
requests. Instead of zoning,
this county's comprehensive
plan contains land use cat-
egories, or districts.)
There are all together
about 90 applications on the
table, ranging in size from
less than one acre to nearly
3,000 acres, reflecting the
movement towards higher
density development in south
Walton and increasing devel-
opment in central and north
Walton.
Literally thousands of
acres north of
Choctawhatchee Bay are
slated for changes to the cur-
rent land use districts.
Quite a few of the propos-
als drew objections from citi-
zens or from planning staff,
who recommended denial of
a number of amendments.
Objections included traffic
concerns, floodplain issues,


environmental issues, com-
patibility, the preservation of
neighborhoods, unwelcome
changes in character from
low-density rural to higher
density type development,
condos in single-family
neighborhoods, and a general
dissatisfaction with the rapid
pace of development and the
trend towards higher densi-
ties.
After a couple of hours of
moving slowly through the
agenda and hearing similar
complaints about various
projects, Randy Gardner, a
new appointee to the plan-
ning commission, gave a
little impromptu speech
about development and in-
creasing population being a
"greater good" for the county,
the state and the country.
"It's the American way," he
said.
A number of citizens took


to the podium to rebut his
position. "Flipping properties
for profit and creating an eco-
nomic bubble is not a greater
good," remarked Bob Dobes.
"It is not a greater good
when you are ruining neigh-
borhoods. It is making people
leave the county," said an--
other local resident.
Local resident Bill Bard
suggested the commission
should take a broader view
and look at neighbors' rights
as well as developers' rights.
Bard's comment drew a
round of applause from many
locals in the audience, but
not from the developers in
attendance.
One person spoke in favor
of higher densities, and an-
other remarked that the cost
of land is pricing working
people out of the community.

formation, contact the CAC at 833-9237, ext. 226.

THE SCENIC CORRIDOR ASSOCIATION is sponsoring
a Scenic 98 Clean-up on April 30. Safety instruction will
begin at 8 a.m. at Cafe Provence in Santa Rosa Beach and
at The Spicy Noodle, located in Inlet Beach. Participants
are asked to register for the event by calling 267-5757.
Goody-bags from Silver Sands Factory Stores will be avail-
able for all participants, along with coffee, donuts, and free
Scenic Corridor Association T-shirts.
"We support a beautiful scenic corridor," Sue Grill, execu-
tive director of the Scenic Corridor Association said. "We
invite business owners, Sunday school classes, civic groups
- anyone who cares about our community to join us on
April 30."

GROWTH


"The greater good for our
community is not six units
per acre," said Sharon
Vaughn, a resident of a Black
Creek neighborhood where
most homes are located on
bne-acre lots. "We ask for a
fair consideration for those
people who want a rural
lifestyle. Please consider the
rest of us who live here," she
said.
SVaughn was opposing a
change for a 155-acre parcel
near Black Creek. The devel-
oper told the planning com-
mission the intention was to
develop at one unit per acre,
but he was asking for a land
use. category that allows six
units per acre.
That particular project was
continued to give the appli-
cant time to revise his appli-
cation to a lower density.
Several other projects were
continued for the same rea-
son. However, in some cases
there is not an "in between"
ciegory available; "-
, Quite a few applications
requested changing from the
"conservation residential"
category to the "infill" cat-
egory. Conser'vatiorn desiden-
tial has several subcategories
with various densities, with
the highest being two dwell-
ing units per acre.
Many of these applications
requested infill, which allows
up to eight units per acre, a
jump in density that drew
numerous objections. ,-
Each time one of these was
under consideration, Bill
Bard got up and reiterated
his position that a new con-
servation residential cat-
egory allowing three or four
units per acre should be
added to the list of available
districts. "I have been saying
this for two years or more,"
he added.
The conservation residen-
tial category is supposed to
allow low density residential
dwellings while preserving
sensitive environmental fea-
tures, such as wetlands.

FROM FRONT


Bard believes a slightly
higher density could be built
on some of these sites, while
still maintaining natural fea-
tures of the land, but the next
available category in south
Walton is the problematic
infill. (See related story,
Commissioners Discuss Infill
Land Use.)
It was nearly ten p.m.
when the planning commis-
sion finally worked their way
through, 20 privately-spon-
sored amendments for prop-
erties larger than 10 acres.
They had intended to hear
another 30 applications for
smaller sites, but they' only
got through the first four be-
fore calling it a night.
Many of the amendments
did finally receive recommen-
dations for approval, a few
were recommended for de-
nial, and several were contin-
ued. The continued applica-
tions, as well as the remain-
der ofthe snpall scale amend,
ments and'-atwadditiari'a 4
county-sponsored amend&
ments will be heard at part
two of the planning
commission's meeting, set for
April 19th.
The planning commission
is a recommending body only.
All these amendments will go
forward to the Board of
County Commission (BCC)
who will make a decision on
whether or not to transmit
them to the Department of
Community Affairs, the state
growth management agency
that reviews these types of
changes.
The first of the BCC meet-
.ings will be on April,18, when
the BCC will hear those ap-
plications that the planning
commission is finished with.
On April 25, the BCC will
hear the applications consid-
ered by the planning commis-
sion on April 19.
All meetings are scheduled
to start at 5 p.m. at the South
Walton Annex.

GENERAL WATER SAVING TIPS

Never pour water down the drain when there may be another use
for it such as watering a plant or garden.

Place a bucket in the shower to catch excess water, and use it to
water plants. The same technique can be used when washing
dishes or vegetables in the sink.

In the shower, turn the water on to get wet; turn it off to lather up;
then back on to rinse off. Repeat when washing your hair.

*Kitchen sink disposals require lots of water to operate properly.
Start a compost pile as an alternate method of disposing of food
waste, instead of using a garbage disposal. Garbage disposals also
can add 50% to the volume of solids in septic tanks, which can
lead to malfunctions and maintenance problems.

If you have a well at home, check your pump periodically. Listen
to hear if the pump kicks on and off while water is not being used.
If it does, you have a leak.


Avoid flushing the toilet unnecessarily. Dispose of tissues, insects
and other similar waste in the trash, rather than the toilet.


Avoid purchasing recreational water toys which require a con-
stant stream of water.


* Support efforts and programs that create a concern for water
conservation among tourists and visitors to our state. Make sure
your visitors understand the need for, and the benefits of. water
conservation.

Try to do one thing each day that will result in saving water.
Don't worry if the sav ings are minimal because every drop
counts!

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 14, 2005


Are drainage ditches adequate to control flooding?


By DOTTY NIST
The 46 drainage ditches
maintained by the South
Walton County Mosquito
District have helped control
flooding and mosquitoes for
decades, but Gary D'Andrea,
district director, has doubts
that they will continue to be
adequate.
, There are several addi-
tional ditches in south Wal-
ion County that are main-


trained by the state, D'Andrea
said.
D'Andrea said he has no-
ticed the ditches getting pro-
gressively fuller after rain-
storms since the recent four
laning of U.S. 98 and that
there has been further filling
as development has contin-
ued to overtake more of the
area south of the bay.
At midmorning on April 7,
in the wake of a three-inch


rain, water in the ditch east
of the mosquito control
district's CR393 headquar-
ters was nearly up to the top
of the culvert. Water in the
ditch measured six feet, with
two feet being the normal
level. D'Andrea said the wa-
ter level had been much
higher earlier in the morn-
ing.
"A three-inch rain event is
making out our ditches,"
D'Andrea reported. He fears
that results may be disas-


trous with heavier rains, es-
pecially if they coincide with
high tides.
He sees the need for seri-
ous planning for the eventu-
ality of a nine-inch or simi-
lar rain event.
All of the district's ditches
are located on private prop-
erty, and landowners must
give their permission for em-
ployees to access them for
maintenance.
D'Andrea said it is not pos-
sible to dig the ditches deeper


because they are already at
water table depth. Widening
them to increase capacity
would be one solution, but
that would mean landowners
giving up more of their prop-
erty, he explained.

The district's drainage
ditches were dug over 20
years ago. Today it is hard to
get state permission to estab-
lish drainage ditches,
D'Andrea said, although he
did not rule out asking for
permission in view of the po-
tential for flooding that now
exists.
D'Andrea said he under-
stands that new develop-


ments are required to be de-
signed in a way that the situ-
ation with runoff and flood-
ing is not worsened, but he
doubts that the designs al-
ways accomplish this in prac-
ticality.
He has expressed severe
concerns about two types of
drainage systems, one using
drainage basins under homes
and one using swales around
the perimeter of each resi-
dence.
D'Andrea calls these types
of drainage systems "short-
sighted," and predicts that, if
approved, they will fail'
sooner or later, resulting in
flooding and mosquito habi-I
t-.t


THIS SOUTH WALTON County Mosquito Control Dis-
trict drainage ditch became overly full after a recent three-
inch rain event. Gary D'Andrea, district director, fears that
drainage ditches would overflow in the event of heavier rains,
especially if in conjunction with a high tide.


WATER IN THIS mosquito control ditch was at a six-foot
level following just a three-inch rain event. Normal level is
two feet.

Mary Esther

woman

killed in

crash
By BRUCE COLLIER
A Mary Esther woman was
killed when the driver of the
car in which she was riding
overturned on Highway 98
last Saturday.
The accident took place at
11:35 p.m. on April 9,'about
four miles east of Ft. Walton
Beach.
Florida Highway Patrol
investigating trooper C.D.
Hurst reported that
Jonathan Robert Mitchell, 22
of 119 Simpson Avenue,
Hurlburt Field, was driving
along the inside lane of Hwy.
98. He left the road "for an
unknown reason," entering
the grass median. .
Mitchell reportedly over-
corrected, then lost control.
His vehicle overturned "at
least four times," and came
to rest on its roof.
Riding in the car with
Mitchell was Glenda Sage
Rush, 26, of 100 B Montgom-
ery Street in Mary Esther.
Rush was ejected from the
car, and came to rest in a
sand dune.
Rush was killed. Mitchell

The report indicates that
Mitchell was wearing a
. seatbelt, but it is unknown
whether Rush was wearing
one. Also unknown is
whether drugs or alcohol
were involved.
The accident remains un-
der investigation.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 14, 2005


Last Saturday-Saturday was one of the few perfect spring
days that probably resulted in the so-so turnout at the Car-
ing & Sharing's auction, but Paula Clauson, coordinator of
Caring & Sharing, was pleased with the result. "We didn't
get the crowd like last year, but it was a success," she said
Monday.
: The auction netted $3,780, just about the same amount
as it did last year, she said. The items were a real bargain,
some going for as little as $1. Yes, it was my bid of $1 for the
1942 glass insulator that once had its home atop of a tele-
phone pole. Volunteer auctioneer Don Russell kept the bid-
ding process running smoothly.
South Walton Caring & Sharing is about people helping
people for those living south of the bay and Freeport.
Contributions of non-perishable food, furniture, clothing,
appliances and toys are welcome. Their building is located
in the Nealley Business Village on Hw 98, Santa Rosa Beach.
Operating hours are 9 a.m. 12 noon.

Weeping Camel-I thought I'd just drop by Sunday after-
noon when Three Arts Alliance was meeting at Coastal
Branch Library. It seems that member Grace Marse had
suggested to president Christine Burroughs that it would
be good to show hard-to-find films for a program or two.
Pleased, Christine selected the 2004 Academy Award -win-
ning narrative documentary, "The Story of the Weeping
Camel."
The tale focuses on the daily life of a four-generation Mon-
gol nomad family who settled in a yurt in the stark Gobi
desert. They are proud of their herd of sheep, goats and
camels, and we arrived in their day-to-day world during
spring birthing season.
After a difficult, harrowing birth, one camel rejects her
calf, showing her destain with snarls, nips and shoves. Tied
to a post a couple of yards away, the newborn wails and
bleats all day refusing to accept mother's milk from the in-
verted ram's horn that's offered.
How the herders solve this dilema is a poignant revela-
tion, not to be revealed here. The audience loved it. You can
order the film at Amazon.com. You won't regret it.

Coming up-Many clubs and organizations are complet-
ing their meeting year. On Thursday, April 21 at 5:30
p.m., the Friends of Eden State Gardens will hold its an-
nual meeting in the Pavilion on Eden grounds to elect new
officers. Eden's present and future will be discussed, too.
1t-nibers are'a:ked to biting an appetizer to share during"
cocktail hour.. Beverages are on the house.

Canine retires


from public service


By DOTTY NIST
"Any time an officer retires,
it's a pretty big occasion,"
.?aid Bruce Ahley. chiefofthe
state Bureau of Fire arndAr-
son Investigations.
The occasion was the re-
tirement of a canine officer,
and a very important one.
Savannah, a golden lab
with expertise in accelerant
detection, had served seven
.years in partnership with
Tommy Barron, a bureau de-
tective who is tasked with
investigation of fires in our
region.
Trained to find substances
such as gasoline and kero-
sene at fire scenes, Savannah
served the state along with
four other canine officers. By
testing samples containing
materials detected by these
dogs, investigators are able
to determine if fires were the
result of arson.
Attendees at nine-year-old
Savannah's retirement party'


THE SATURDAY AUCTION at Caring & Sharing drew bidders for a variety of items.

auction on Saturday.


at the South Walton Fire
District's Seagrove Station
also got the chance to meet
erW reptdacemennt. Ar.rv.,
young black lab. However,
the focus was firmly on hon-
oring Savannah.
Ashley noted that Savan-
nah had participated in over
800 investigations during her
career and had achieved an
80-percent-plus success rate
in accelerant detection.
Savannah will have a
happy and active retirement
as mascot for the Seagrove
Station.
Barron, her partner of
seven years, remarked that
the new arrangement is per-
fect for Savannah, since she
is definitely a "people" ca-
nine. That was obvious as she
enthusiastically greeted
South Walton Fire District
Chief Les Hallman, district
firefighters and staff.
Barron said there are over
100 canine officers like Sa-
vannah on duty all over the
United States. He explained
that these dogs are a very
important tool in arson inves-
tigation, saving detectives
untold hours of research time
at fire scenes.
It costs over $25,000 to ac-
quire and train an accelerant
detection canine, Barron
said. The dogs attend train-
ing classes in Maine and are
recertified yearly for accu-
racy in detection of gasoline
and other fuels.
Funding for this canine
program is provided nation-
wide through grants from the
State Farm Insurance Com-
pany to fire marshal's offices
and rural fire departments,
Barron explained.

where there are breaking
waves, and they typically
form at low spots or breaks
in sandbars. As the wave
heights increase, so does the
speed of the rip currents,

Clues to look for are a chan-
nel of churning, choppy wa-
ter, an area having a notable
difference in water color, a
line of foam, seaweed, or de-
bris moving steadily seaward
or a break in the incoming
wave pattern.
Any or none of the above
clues may indicate the pres-

are often not readily or eas-
' ily identifiable to the average
beachgoer.
To stay safe, never swim
alone, and learn how to swim
in the surf. If in doubt about
the conditions, don't go in.
If you are caught in a rip
current, try not to panic.
NOAA advises that you stay
calm in order to conserve en-
ergy. Try to stay afloat and
swim out of the rip current
by swimming sideways, not
against the current.

If you are unable to swim
out of the current, tread wa-
ter or float.


Rip currents typically ex-
tend from near the shoreline,
through the surf zone and
past the line of breaking
waves.
If you see someone caught
in a rip current, call for help.
Many drowning victims died
trying to save someone else
caught in a rip current, ,'.'

rents are always an, issie in

the sand moves towards the

lem this time of the year," he
said.
