Employee turnover creates


problems for county offices


By TIANA LARSEN
In the last few months, the
county has lost several key
department heads and other
staff. Quite a few of these
positions have now been
filled (See Walton County
news release regarding re-
cent new hires) but others
have opened up, and the
county is looking at ways to
reduce turnover and fill va-
cancies.

There is no doubt that the
recent employee turnover in
Walton County is costing tax-
payer dollars. Gary Mattison,
county human resources di-
rector, explained some of


those costs to the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners at a recent
workshop on employee reten-
tion.
Mattison said a good rule
of thumb is that when an
employee leaves, the county
loses the equivalent of about
six months' wages. Obvious
visible costs include accrued
vacation pay, increased un-
employment tax, advertising,
interview expenses, tempo-
rary replacement costs, and
the like.
Other hidden costs include
lost productivity, low morale,
loss of organizational knowl-
edge, loss of client relation-


ships, disrupted depart-
ments, missed deadlines and
a chain-reaction turnover.
Some of the issues
Mattison spoke about that he
believes are reasons why the
county is failing to attract
and retain employees are the
lack of affordable housing
and increasing competition
from the private sector.
However, Mattison went on
to say, although it is easy to
say that the county loses
people because other employ-
ers attract them with higher
wages, exit interviews show
that other factors such as
how well they felt they were
treated and appreciated are


important also.
Some of the reasons for
leaving given in exit inter-
views include better pay,
stressful working conditions,
not suited for the job, moved
out of state, moved out of the
local area, caring for an ag-
ing parent, career change
and unable to work with a co-
worker.
"It is important to do a good
job on the front end (when
hiring) Mattison said, noting
that it is a national trend to
fail in the first year, which he
identified as a critical time
for bonding between the

police chief Burgess


By Bruce Collier

Gov. Jeb Bush recently or-
dered the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement to
conduct an investigation of
DeFuniak Springs City
Marshall Ray Burgess.
The governor's order, dated
April 8, directs the FDLE
Office of Executive Investiga-

involving "possible criminal
misconduct related to falsifi-
cation of records."
Local law enforcement of-

Colonel William Chapman.
Allegedly, Chapman had
been seeking recertification
as a law enforcement officer.
Apparently, dispatcher and

By Sara Comander
Walton County Public
Information Coordinator

As our county grows, so
does the need for services
provided by the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners. To that end,
several new employees will
join the ranks of Walton
County employees in the
near future. Some will be re-
placing senior staff who have
moved on to other positions.
Pat Blackshear is the new
planning and development
director. Pat and her family
are residents of Santa Rosa
Beach. Pat has 30 years of

Water Management District


and, from 1975 to 1984, she
was county planner and
grants director for the Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners.
Blackshear attended OWC,
Tallahassee Community Col-
lege and Florida State Uni-
versity, where she majored in
political science and minored
in urban and regional plan-
ning. She has a master's de-
gree from FSU in urban and
regional planning.
John J. Johnson will begin
work as Walton County Pub-
lic Works director on May 9.

Board of County Commissioners vote


nixes purchase of old store building


By DOTTY NIST
Walton County has decided
to proceed with setting up an
interim animal shelter
within the county, while
working to get a permanent
shelter in place on donated
Rock Hill Road property.
The April 12 Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners decision will
result in the termination of
the county's current animal
shelter contract with a
Chipley veterinarian. The
county pays $263,000 annu-
ally for the current services,
in an arArigement existing
for several years.
The April 12 vote was 4 to
1, and comment by two local
animal spokespersons was
against setting up the in-
county temporary facility.
The plan involves the D&D
Pet Motel building, located
on Hwy. 90, east of DeFuniak
Springs. It has been under
consideration for a number of
months.
According to a report pre-
pared by the Walton County
Finance Division, there will
be approximately $222,000
in additional cost to the
county through 2007 associ-
ated with going to the pet
motel facility. These are con-
sidered "non-reusable" costs,
as opposed to, for example
$25,170 for fencing, a cost
expected to be incurred
sooner or later with the per-
manent facility.
The county plans to save
money through the use of
prison inmates to clean the
temporary shelter.
Is it worth the additional
cost to "bring the animals
back to Walton County," as a
number of people have
urged?
Lynda Morse of DeFuniak
Springs did not think so. She
argued that most animals at
the shelter are strays that
will unfortunately end up
being euthanized.
"Why would you want to
bring them back for that?"
she asked.
Morse also called the in-
terim shelter plan part of a


"private agenda."
"We encourage you not to
do it," agreed Jerry Fulaytar.
Fulaytar admitted that there
would be advantages to get-
ting the shelter facility back
in Walton County, one of
them being getting employ-
ees trained earlier so that
they would be prepared once
the permanent shelter was
ready.
However, he was of the
opinion that the advantages
would be outweighed by the
unrecoverable costs associ-
ated with the temporary fa-
cility. H6 called foi instead
moving ahead with the per-
manent shelter as soon as
possible.
"I think we need to do busi-
ness within our county," Dis-
trict 1 Commissioner Scott
Brannon commented.
Brannon noted that he sup-
ports both the temporary fa-
cility and the permanent fa-
cility"staying on track."
"I don't think we need, a
trial run," District 5 Commis-
sioner Cindy Meadows dis-:
agreed.
"I think this is just going
to bleed off resources," she
said of the temporary shelter
plan.
District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones had previously
expressed reservations about'
the cost of the plan; However,
at the April 12 meeting he
said he was aware of support
by citizens for having the
animal facility "at home."
Jones also urged that the
county strive to make animal
adoptions easy at the in-
county shelter.
District 4 Commissioner'
Ro Cuchen has consistently
advocated bringing animal
control back into Walton
County. Cuchens moved to
proceed with the interim
plan. His motion was ap-
proved 4 to 1, with Meadows
casting the dissenting vote.
A July 1 start date is an-
ticipated for the interim shel-
ter. It is expected to take as
long as two years to build the
permanent shelter on Rock
Hill Road.


'By DOTTY NIST
County acquisition of the
former DeFuniak Springs
Wal-Mart building on U.S.
331 is now out of the picture
as the result of an April 12
decision.
The idea was enticing.
Even one member of the Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) who
voted against county pur-
chase of the building, Larry
Jones, called the idea of buy-
ing the building for recre-
ational and other public use
"a noble idea." However,
Jones was concerned that the
$1.7 million price tag would
bring the county budget .re-
serves to "a dangerously low
level."


"What if we get a hurricane
June 15?" Jones asked.
The county has eyed the
unused building with several
possible purposes in mind
during recent months, in-
cluding previously as a site
for county jail expansion.
With other plans made to re-
lieve jail overcrowding, the
commission had given con-
sideration to acquiring the
building as 'a site for storage
or for youth activities.

At the April 12 BCC meet-
ing, District 4 Commissioner
Ro Cuchens, a proponent of
the purchase, envisioned a
myriad of possible uses for
the building: track and field,
basketball practice, ping


pong, soccer, computer sta-
tions for homework, and
space for after school
mentoring programs.
County Administrator
Ronnie Bell was not certain
how much it would cost to get
the building ready for public
use, since no firm plan had
yet been ironed out.
Cuchens mentioned the
possibility of grant funding to
put improvements in place
on the property. It would also
be possible to break up the
parcel and lease portions out
to other parties to recoup
costs, he noted.
Walton County Finance
Director Bill Imfeld said that
all capital reserves in the
county budget are now com-


mitted to the relocation of the
downtown jail; following a
March BCC decision, a new
jail facility is being con-
structed on county property
north of DeFuniak Springs
where there is more room for
expansion.

Imfeld said he would there-
fore recommend going to the
general fund reserves if the
commissioners decided in fa-
vor of the purchase.
However, this did not prove
necessary. Cuchens' motion
to acquire the building failed
in a 2 to 3 vote. District 1
Commissioner Scott
Brannon joined Cuchens in
voting in favor of the pur-
chase.


Mossy Head


school site a "Go"


By DOTTY NIST
Walton County is moving
forward with the transfer of
a 20-acre parcel in Mossy
Head for an elementary
school site.

On April 12, the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners voted 5-0 to
donate the 20 acres to the
Walton County School Board.
On April 4, the school board
had voted unanimously to


acquire the property from the
county.
The property is the north
portion of a 47-acre tract that
was acquired by the county
a number of years ago in con-
junction with the Mossy
Head Industrial Park prop-
erty. A county EMS station is
already located on the parcel.
The school board has re-
quested that their acquisi-
tion of the property be expe-
dited.

Walton-DeFuniak Library


has been in use for 119 years


The Walton-DeFuniak Li-
brary on Circle Drive is the
oldest building that has con-
tinuously operated as a li-
brary in the State of Florida.
Many long-time residents
have fond memories of this li-
brary. Newcomers are discov-
ering what a great resource
residents have in this build-
ing erected in 1886.
As with any old building,
maintenance can be a prob-
lem. There are a number of
places where water leaks into
the Walton-DeFuniak Li-
brary.


Tickets are now on sale for
Disney's "The Jungle Book"
which is being performed by
the Florida Chautauqua The-
atre Children's Workshop
troop.
The performance dates will
be Friday, April 29 at 7p.m.
and Saturday, April 30 at 7
p.m., and Sunday, May 1 at
2:30 p.m.


Private landowners, com-
munity leaders, businesses
and citizens are invited to
spend the day learning some
excellent way to plan, fund
and market farms and home-
based business.
This workshop is for any-
one currently involved in
agri/eco, nature-based or
heritage tourism activities or
would like-to learn more
about these alternative enter-
prises for rural communities.
The workshop will be held


Some are minor leaks even
in the heaviest rain; others
are major leaks but only af-
ter heavy rains that last sev-
eral days. Excessive moisture
is not conducive to keeping
books in good condition, so
this is a great concern for our
library staff.
The building itself is owned
by the City of DeFuniak
Springs. The Walton County
Library Department oper-
ates the library under an
interlocal agreement be-
tween DeFuniak Springs and
Walton County that was

made in November 2000.
Under this agreement, the
City of DeFuniak Springs is
responsible for the mainte-
nance of the exterior of. the
building. The DeFuniak
Springs Garden Club is also
active in maintaining land-
scaping around the library.
The City of DeFuniak
Springs had all of the win-
dows caulked and resealed
two. years ago as ongoing
maintenance. This signifi-
cantly reduced a persistent
problem with water coming
in around the windows. Since
that time, Hurricane Ivan
and recent torrential rains
have revealed other prob-
lems.
Water sometimes has come
in the lower level of the li-
brary at its foundation. City
work crews have re-con-
toured the drainage on the
north side of the library to
carry water away from the


189 N. Main St.
Crestview, FLt


building. This will prevent
the water from backing up
against the downstairs door
and soaking the carpet
around the doorway. This
work should also stop the
water that comes in at the
base of the wall downstairs.
The city has also been
working on the windows
overlooking the lake on the
east side of the building.
Workers have replaced de-
teriorated molding, caulked
again around the windows,
and have also replaced miss-
ing shingles on the roof. City
crews recently reroofed the
entire addition to the origi-
nal library building.
The next project the City of
DeFuniak Springs is plan-
ning is changing the land-
scaping on the south side of
the library to get rain water
to flow away from the
library's foundation more
quickly.

'Fire services heating up


By TAMMY KEARCE

As housing demands in
north Walton continue to
rise, fire services across the
county are responding to in-
:creased call volume, admin-
;istrative responsibilities and
:accountability issues. In or-
der to consolidate tasks and
,organize the twelve districts
,that comprise Walton
.County's fire system, the po-
sition of Walton County Fire
"Manager was created and, if
all goes well, the position
may be filled as early as this
.week. However, the newly-
-appointed fire manager will
face unique challenges
within Walton County's fire
system.
Prior to 2002, each fire dis-


trict was awarded equal
funding by the county, but
since that time, each district
has been directed to submit
a budget requesting funds for
specific needs. The decision
was made in order to award
more money to the depart-
ments experiencing rapid
growth while continuing to
provide every district with
adequate resources. "There
are as many answers to that
question [how should the
money be divided?] as there
are firefighters," said DeFu-
niak Springs Fire Chief
Brian Coley. "It is a matter
of determining need."
While this action did diver-
sify funding, it also pitted
county fire departments
against one another in an ef-


fort to secure much-needed
money. "Splitting up the bud-
gets started a confusion that
has escalated," said Tri-Vil-
lage VFD Chief Pete
Toosignant. Individual bud-
gets also create a great deal
of administrative work
within each department. The
entire upcoming year must
be assessed and necessities
itemized. "They want to treat
us like department heads,
but department heads get
paid for their work," said Lib-
erty VFD Chief Roger Roy.
While the Walton County
Fire Board (an advisory
board composed of the twelve
district fire chiefs) is in
agreement that an account-
ability system is essential at
an incident scene, devising a
countywide system has
proven impossible. An ac-
countability system informs
the incident commander on
scene where every firefighter
is stationed and his or her
level of training.
There are two systems cur-
rently in use in Walton
County-- the passport system
and the two-tag system. The
issue has been bantered
about within the fireboard for
years as to which system the
county should universally
adopt.
In 2001, the fireboard es-
tablished a committee to re-
search different accountabil-


ity systems and report its
findings. The committee pre-
sented a version of the two-
tag system as the most prac-
tical alternative. However, in
subsequent meetings, a rift
developed between those de-
partments who preferred the
two-tag system and those
who adopted the passport
system. Since the passport
system has been tried and
upheld in federal court, some
departments, such as the De-
Funiak Springs Fire Depart-
ment, Darlington/Gaskin
VFD and Red Bay VFD, feel
it the logical alternative. But
other departments, such as
Argyle VFD, South Walton
Fire District, and Liberty
VFD, prefer the two-tag sys-
tem because it is compatible
with surrounding depart-
ments and more in line with
their individual needs.
"Many departments in sev-
eral states are using the
same system that we have
with satisfactory results,"
said Argyle VFD Chief


Charlie Day. Therefore, the
board has agreed to disagree.
With a little cooperation, a
way of merging the two sys-
tems on scene was developed
that will satisfy each
department's accountability
requirements, but it will take
time for the departments to
adjust to the merged system.
"Right now, it works, but it
could work better," said
Coley.
Although the Walton
County Fire Board may
never agree on every issue,
progress is being made. The
departments are now devel-
oping positive relationships
with a universal goal of serv-
ing the county. "We have to
forget the boundary lines and
provide service to the
people," said Darlington/
Gaskin Fire Chief Ron
Prokop.
So, the fire board has voted
to organize a Walton County
Urban Interface Task Force,
which will be composed of
firefighters and equipment

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

PERSONAL COMMENTS



Editor's Comment


The good

By RON KELLEY
One of our office staffers recently complained that I've
been spending too much time lamenting the evils of Big
Government in this column and not enough on nostalgic
musings about 'the good old days' and other lighter, gentler
topics. She's right, of course. It's true, I'm guilty as charged.
I just wish it weren't so easy. Most politicians are so cor-
rupt and we've become so used to it they don't even try
and hide it anymore.
But I digress.




Dear Editor,
The DeFuniak Springs Business and Professional Asso-
ciation (DBPA) has sponsored the Fourth of July Celebra-
tion in Walton County since 1991. Our theme this year is
"Religious Freedom The right of every American." With
your help, we hope to make our 2005 celebration bigger and
better than ever.
We are asking every club, church and organization in
Walton County to be in our parade. There is no entry fee for
the parade and prizes will be awarded to the winning entry.
This is a great way to show pride in your organization and
build camaraderie among your members.
The children's activities were sponsored by candidates
running for political office last year. We had a dunking booth,
slip-n-slide, watermelon slices, popcorn, face painting, ice
cream, dragon jumping room, bean bag toss, show cones,
musical chairs, ID cards/fingerprinting, a petting zoo and
more.
We are asking the area churches and clubs to sponsor these
(or other fun events) this year. Your organization will have
lots of fun putting on these activities and will be blessed
with the smiles of hundreds of local children enjoying this
glorious holiday.
To find out how to be a part of this historic event, please
give me a call at 892-8530 or 830-1661 to let me know if
your organization wants to participate and what activity
you will be sponsoring. We also would like to know in ad-
vance if you will participate in the parade.
I want to thank you and your members in advance for
taking part in our 2005 Fourth of July activities. Let the
sounds of freedom ring bright and clear from Walton County
on the Fourth of July. Sara K. Comander, president
DeFuniak Springs Business and
Professional Association.


Editor:
If George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madi-
son, and many others who gave of much of their time to this
country could come back, imagine their surprise. They could
hardly recognize this country.
If they were given one month to report all the terrible
changes and violations of the United States Constitution,
it would seem to go on forever. If the list were read out loud,
it would make the reader hoarse.
What should we do about it? Yes, we do need to call our
representatives and use our influence, but most importantly
we should pray about this corrupted nation. Same-sex
unions, removal of the Ten Commandments, abortion, and
judicial tyranny are just a few of the terrible changes.
Can God bless a nation that in turn forsakes Him? One
that removes Him from the courts? One that goes out of its
way to remove Him from the schools? How about one that
sheds innocent blood? One that trades with a communist
government? One that teaches children they're an accident?
One that accommodates illegal aliens? One that is not care-
ful to practice justice? How can you say, "One nation under
God, with liberty and justice for all," when a murderer's
death sentence is overturned only because members of the
jury consulted a Bible? Wake up America. Caleb Crow,
Ponce de Leon

Sold days

This week, I'm going to try to focus on those long ago days
of yore, when men were men and the women were darn
glad of it; when life was simpler and everything moved a
little slower than today, yet things still got done on time.
Remember back before every single man, woman and child
carried a cell-phone with them every waking
moment? Remember that? Remember when you had to stop
and use a pay phone or else wait until you got back to the
office or back home before you had to call
someone? Remember that feeling of not being chained to a
beeping, buzzing, ringing phone every minute?
I have a cell phone now. I resisted for years, but finally I
was tagged with one of the infernal devices. At first, I kept
it turned off until I needed to call someone, explaining that
the phone was for my convenience, no one else's. That didn't
go over too well. Now I have to answer it any time it rings.
My last defense now is that only about a dozen people on
.the planet have the number. I could give it to others, but if
I did, they'd just call me.
Remember when no one had to choose between medicine
or food and doctors willingly accepted whatever a working
man could afford to pay for a visit to their office?
Remember when America would never consider going to
war unless it had been deliberately attacked; when no wars
were started over oil, but instead were actually fought over
ideals like freedom, equality and justice?
Remember back when no one had a computer in their
home because just one of them was about the size of an
SUV and you had to be an MIT grad student or a pocket
protector-wearing engineer to operate one?
Remember back before there was an Internet; before there
were blogs, viruses spy-ware or electronic junk mail called
spam, which invite you to lose weight, watch porn, buy
stocks, watch porn, order Viagra, watch porn, get a better
mortgage rate, watch porn or obtain an academic degree
for $50 while you watch more porn?
Remember when there was no nudity on television, when
TV parents slept in separate twin beds if they even slept
in the same room at all and women were never pregnant,
only "expecting"? Remember when Rhett Butler's closing
remark to Scarlett was considered shocking; when the
world's greatest action hero was John Wayne and the wild-
est rock and roller was a leg-shaking, hymn-singing, mama's
* boy from Memphis?
Remember back before it seemed somehow reasonable to
pay to have a space satellite tracking you everywhere you
go- just in case you lock your keys in the car?
Remember when being gay meant being happy and care-
free, when a joint was a place your mama told you never to.
"be-and coke-could onlybefound in that beautifulLy-.haped:
green-glass bottle? Remember wheif'boy's pants still fit
around their waist and girls still wore dresses; when lip-
stick and makeup was only for high school girls and tattoos
were only for sailors?
Remember when you could walk into a bank and get a
loan because the local bank president and loan officer knew
you and believed you'd work hard and make your payments
on time?
Remember when towering dunes stretched as far as the
eye could see in Santa Rosa Beach; when there were only a
few cinder-block weekend houses in Grayton Beach and land
there was cheap after all, you couldn't grow anything on
it.
Remember Schwinn bicycles, slumber parties, cat's-eye
marbles, sitting with your parents in church and your
sister's new Easter dress? Remember when the whole fam-
ily watched one TV. Remember seeing Hank Aaron knock
another one out of the park, watching Chester limp along
behind Marshall Dillon on Gunsmoke, or Tom and Nancy
Hughes duel with Lisa and Dr. Dixon on As The World
Turns ? Remember Freddie the Freeloader, the Captain and
Mr. Greenjeans, Lassie and the famous Mr. Ed ?
Remember when politicians could actually be heroes, too-
like Teddy Roosevelt, FDR, Eisenhower and Winston
Churchill?
Not many political heroes left around anymore, and at
this point, I could begin to list all the ways that our Big
Brother Big Government has contributed to the loss of things
we once held dear but that's a story for another day.
For now, let's just sit here on the porch with a glass of
sweet iced-tea and think about Huck and Tom, Andy and
Aunt Bea, Bud and Lou, George and Gracie, Dorothy and
Toto, Bogie and Bacall, Hoss and Little Joe and all those
thrilling days of yesteryear that we now call 'the good old
days.'

The availability of this task

Toosignant.
With twelve distinct fire

Advocacy Center to hold conference on child abuse


By BRUCE COLLIER
The Emerald Coast
Children's Advocacy Center


will hold its 4th annual con-
ference, "Child Abuse Iden-
tifying and Healing the


Trauma," April 25 and 26.
The conference will be held
at the Niceville Community


To prevent illness


Department of Health warns

of risks after a large storm


After a large storm with
heavy rains, the Department
-of Health encourages resi-
'dents and visitors to take
,precautions to prevent ill-
.ness.
*The Department of
lHealth advises that individu-
als should not eat any food
that may have come into con-
t~ct with contaminated wa-
ter from floods or tidal
surges.
Commercially prepared
-,cans of food should not be
eaten if there is a bulging or
:opening on the can or the
.screw caps, soda pop bottle
*tops or twist-caps.
* eUndamaged, commer-
,saved if you remove the la-
|bels and then disinfect the
,cans in a bleach solution. Use
174 cup of bleach in one gal-
jlon of water; re-label the cans
including expiration date
mand type of food. Assume
that home-canned food is
unsafe.
* 'Infants should be fed only
pt'e-prepared canned baby
formula. Do not use pow-
d'ered formulas prepared
:with treated water. Use
boiled water when preparing
-formula.
*Frozen and refrigerated
'foods can be unsafe after a
;hurricane. When the power
,is out, refrigerators will keep
foods cool for only about four
~ours. Thawed food can usu-
!ally be eaten only if it is still
"refrigerator cold." '
- Basic hygiene is very im-
ortant during this emer-
gency period. Always wash
your hands with soap and
water that has been boiled or
Vdisinfected before eating, af-
'er toilet use, after partici-
pating in cleanup activities
and after handling articles
contaminate the floodwater
br sewage.
:' *Flooding that occurs after
tOhe hurricane may mean that
kater contains fecal matter
romn sewage systems, agri-
kultural and industrial waste
,nd septic tanks. If you have
ppen cuts or sores exposed to
%he floodwater, keep them as
6ilean as possible by washing
&hem with soap and clean
rater. Apply antibiotic oint-
Paent to reduce the risk of
infection. If a wound or sore
develops redness, swelling or
drainage, see a physician.
Do not allow children to


play in floodwater. They can
be exposed to water contami-
nated with fecal matter. Do
not allow children to play
with toys that have been in
floodwater until the toys
have been disinfected. Use
1/4 cup of bleach in one gal-
lon of water.
'Using battery-powered
lanterns and flashlights is
preferable to using candles.
*If you must use candles,
make sure you put them in
safe holders away from cur-
tains, paper, wood, or other
flammable items.
*Heavy rains and flooding
can lead to an increase in
mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are
most active at sunrise and
sunset. Public health au-
thorities will be working ac-
tively to control the spread of
any diseases transmitted by
mosquitoes.
*To protect against mos-
quitoes, DOH urges the pub-
lic to remain diligent in their
personal mosquito protection
efforts. These should include
the 5 D's for prevention:
Avoid being outdoors when
mosquitoes are seeking
blood, for many species this
is during the dusk and dawn
hours.
*Wear clothing that covers

skin.
When the potential exists
for exposure to mosquitoes,
repellents containing DEET
Check your home to rid
it of standing water in which
mosquitoes can lay their
eggs. Clean out eaves,
troughs and gutters. Remove
old tires or drill holes in those
used in playgrounds to drain.
*Turn over or remove
empty plastic pots. Pick up
all beverage containers and
cups. Check tarps on boats or
other equipment that may
collect water. Pump out
bilges on boats. Replace
water in birdbaths and pet or
other animal feeding dishes
at least once a week. Change
water in plant trays, includ-
ing hanging plants, at least
once a week. "
*Remove vegetation or ob-
structions in drainage
ditches that prevent the flow
of water.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 21, 2005


Talking to kids about tobacco important for parents


Over 692,000 of Florida's
children are exposed to sec-
ondhand smoke at home and
around 33,900 of them will
become new daily smokers
this year. Research shows
that children who have a par-
ent who smokes are more
likely to smoke and be
heavier smokers at younger
ages. Infants and small chil-
dren with parents who do not
use tobacco, sleep better,
have fewer coughs and colds
and ha-ve half of the bronchi-


tis, pneumonia, ear and
lower respiratory tract infec-
tions than contracted by
those with parents who
smoke.
The vast majority of par-
ents do not want their kids
to smoke. However, a recent
survey of elementary stu-
dents in Walton County
asked, "What would your
parents say if you smoked?"
Many answered, "I don't
know." Parents may think


EWNV case reported


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Senrvices Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson
says this year's first case of
Eastern Equine Encephalitis
has been reported in Union
County and he is urging
horse owners to have their
animals vaccinated against
mosquito-borne illnesses.
The three-year-old horse
was seen by a local veterinar-
ian who suspected Eastern
Equiiie Encephalomyelitis
(EEE). On March 22, lab test-
ing confirmed the diagnosis
of EEE. The testing also re-
vealed an exposure to the
West .Nile Virus (WNV),
which may have complicated
the horse's condition.
"Horse owners have done a
good job in getting their ani-
mals properly vaccinated
over the past few years and
we have seen a significant
drop in the number of equine
WNV cases," Bronson said.
"But it is critical that we
don't become complacent.
Mosquito season is upon us


j. 4 .






I, SOMER BRAKE am on
probation for Retail Theft.


and the chances of contract-
ing these diseases have, of
course, increased. Horse
owners are reminded that
their animals' vaccinations
must be up to date, includ-
ing the necessary booster
shots."
In 2004, there were 48 re-
ported cases of EEE in horses
and six confirmed equine
WNV cases. That compares
with nearly 500 reported
WNV cases in 2002.


their child knows how they
feel about smoking, but the
only way to be sure is to talk
about those feelings towards
tobacco as well as parents'
expectations.
*Be an anti-smoking role
model.
*If you don't smoke, don't
start. If you do smoke, quit.
Research shows that kids
who have a parent who
smokes are more likely to
smoke themselves.
*If you smoke, share your
struggles to quit or problems
caused by tobacco with your
child. Kids underestimate
how difficult it is to quit.


eMaintain a smoke-free
home and automobile. A
smoke-free home makes chil-
dren less likely to smoke. By
not allowing anyone to smoke
in their home, parents show
their kids that smoking is
undesirable. Keeping sec-
ondhand smoke away from
your child will lessen colds
and illness.
*Tell your kids you don't
want them to smoke and will
be disappointed if they do.
Parental attitudes about
kids' smoking greatly influ-
ences whether or not kids
will smoke, even when the
parents smoke.

County donates used


computers to OWC

district and the county. They
refurb-'h them and load soft-
ware designed to help el-
ementary students with their
reading skills. The older com-
puters are not adequate for


today's internet and net-
working requirements, but
they run simple educational
programs just fine.
The Vo-Tech was an early
supporter of the Cyber Club,


helping them with technol-:
ogy expertise. Now the Cyber
Club is assisting the Vo-Tech
by providing donated equip-
ment to support their third-
grade school project.


Over the past few years,
computers used by Walton
County have been recycled by
passing surplused, outdated
computers to the Chautua-
qua Cyber Club. The mem-
bers of the Chautuaqua
Cyber Club donate their time
and expertise in computers to
actually repair, refurbish,
and restore the used ma-
chines to useful condition.
Through the efforts of the
Chautauqua Cyber Club,
students have better access
to computers.
In a cooperative effort, De-
Funiak Springs Mayor
Harold Carpenter donated
warehouse space as a private
citizen for storage of ma-
chines that cannot be imme-
diately repaired and put to
work. Computers are also
donated by larger businesses,
such as CHELCO.
OWC's Chautauqua


Neighborhood Center pro-
vides the space for the Cyber
Club to work on the ma-
chines. In return, most of the
computers that are recycled
are placed with OWC stu-
dents who need them. Oth-
ers are put to use with agen-
cies, such as the Council on
Aging, Red Cross and other
non-profit organizations.
Third- grade school children
have benefited from donated
computers repaired by the
Cyber Club
According to J.B. Hillard,
an active member of the
Chautauqua Cyber Club, the
core project of the Cyber
Club, the New Horizons
Community Program, is the
basis for what has grown to
be a broad outreach that
touches many lives. Strong
community support has
made the outreach very suc-
cessful.


In a brief ceremony on Fri-
day, Feb. 18, County Com-
mission Chair Kenneth
Pridgen, DeFuniak Springs
Mayor Harold Carpenter,
County Finance Director Bill
Imfeld, Dr. David Goetch and
Barbara Jones of Okaloosa-
Walton College, Leigh
Grantham of CHELCO, and
Robert King, Vice-President
of the Chautauqua Cyber
Club gathered to say thank
you to each other.
Also on hand were County
Fixed Assets Coordinator
Deana Hayward and Betty
Nehring of Tri-County Com-
munity Council's staff.
This project, begun by the
Chautauqua Cyber Club,
was the impetus for a simi-
lar project at the Walton Vo-
Tech School. Vo-Tech stu-
dents work on used comput-
ers that are received from
agencies such as the school


The Walton County Board of County Commissioners is sponsoring a project to collect,

COUNTY, OWC OFFICIALS


Cekosky pleads guilty to charges

of identity theft and tax charges


United States Attorney
Gregory R. Miller, Northern
District of Florida, an-
nounced recently that Robert
A. Cekosky, a/k/a Howard H.
Burney, a/k/a Lionel C.
O'Grady, a/k/a Richard P.
Black, age 64, of Ponce de
Leon, Florida, was sentenced
before United States District
Court Judge Lacey A. Collier
after pleading guilty to iden-
tity theft and tax charges.
On Jan. 20, Cekosky pled
guilty to two counts of iden-
tity theft, one count of use of
a false social security num-
ber, and one count of filing a


false tax return.
Cekosky was sentenced to
13 months in the custody of
the United States Bureau of
Prisons, followed by three
years supervised release.
Forfeiture of $69,596 was
also ordered. Cekosky was
further ordered to pay a
$3,000 fine and a $400 spe-
cial monetary assessment.
Cekosky assumed several
different identities of de-
ceased men from different
states and used the identities
to open a series of bank ac-
counts in the false names. In
doing so, he used the dece-


dents' dates of birth and so-
cial security numbers as well.
He then failed to report and
pay tax on the derived inter-
est income. Ironically, in
1991, Cekosky authored and
published a book entitled
Everybody's Guide to Bad
Debt Collection, in which he
schooled interested readers
in tracking and collecting
from debtors, including debt-
ors who have changed their
identities to avoid payment.
This case was investigated
by the Internal Revenue Ser-
vice Criminal Investigations
Division. The prosecution
was handled by Assistant
United States Attorney
Michelle M. Heldmyer.

Paxton looking for water upgrades


by Kerry Stewart
Paxton Town Council re-
ceived an update on the Com-
munity Development Block
Grant (CDBG) during their
regular meeting.on Tuesday,
April 12. Robert L. Jones,
president of Jones-Phillips &
Associates, Inc. addressed the
council members and resi-
dents of Paxton. Jones' firm
specializes in planning and
economic development and
has prepared the grant- and
other documentation and
work on behalf of Paxton. The
first discussion regarding the
town's water supply needs
was held on June 21, 2003
and efforts to improve the
system have been ongoing
ever since.
Jones noted that the pref
liminary engineering report
(PER) had been completed
after five years of work. In
1998 the Department of En-
vironmental Protection
(DEP) reported that the town
Sdid not have enough storage
capacity to meet the needs of
the town in the case of a wa-
ter shortage as well as the
additional needs for another
well in case of an outage.
The key points that Jones
noted in the PER included the
need for a 250,000-gallon re-
serve water storage tank for
the town as identified by
DEP. In order to help allevi-
ate these deficiencies, the
town elected to request
grants to build a new tank
and well within the town's
limits. The grant award
would allow the town to meet
:the DEP requirements for
water storage and continuing
dependable source of portable
water for necessary backup to
the existing water supply for
the town. It would also pro-
vide sufficient water supply
for fire protection.
: The total anticipated cost
:of the project is projected to
:be $1,026,000. Jones notified
:council members that the
:water supply and storage
-would be addressed through
:the approved CDBG and re-
:quested Rural Development
:funds. The town has received
:$600,000 in CDBG funds.
:Rural Development is consid-
ering a request for $234,000
from the town. And the next
'step, prior to Rural Develop-
,ment funds being received,
Swill be to secure $192,000 in
Contingency funds from a
,loan request. The CDBG will
:support 58% of the total cost.
:The rural development grant
'requested would total 23% of
'the total project cost leaving
:a remaining 19% for the town
:to provide.
: The town will also need to
,consider the budget for the
:water department. A possible
-way to increase the revenue
for the department would be


to restructure the water
rates. A proposed rate sched-
ule was available for council's
review but no action was
taken at this time.
During part of the discus-
sion, interim mayor Bobby
Kemp noted that rates should
increase more outside of the
town's limits rather than in-
creases within the town.
Kemp felt that it cost the
"town, more to run lines and
Spersohhel outside ofthe town.
In addition, Kemp said that
residents inside of the town's
limits already paid a utility
tax that residents in the
county were not required to
pay.
Kemp and others also
noted that the town had al-
ready received complaints
from residents outside of the
town's limits that they did not
have adequate water pres-
sure. In order to increase
rates outside of the town, the
town would need to be pre-
pared to provide adequate
services in those areas.
Currently there are 363
water customers outside of
the town limits and 306
within the town limits.
Florida allows for rate in-
creases of up to 25% outside
of the town without justifica-
tion for the increase. With
appropriate justification,
rates can increase up to
150%.
While it was also noted the
system running outside of the
town's limits is devoid of six
inch water lines, this is not an
issue that the council can ad-
dress. The county submitted
a proposal for CDBG funds at
the same time that Paxton
submitted their proposal but
the county was denied fund-
ing during this fiscal year.
Anything running outside of
the town's limits will have to
be addressed by the Walton
County Commission. The
council was encouraged to
assist the county during the
next funding cycle to re-re-
quest the assistance.
Following the update and
ensuing discussion, Jones re-
quested that council approve
submitting the rural develop-
ment application and to ex-
ecute the agreement for legal
services. Fees for legal ser-
vices are included in the
grant agreement, as they are
required in order to secure
bonds. Council approved the
motion unanimously.
BruceWard, president of
the Paxton Ruritan Club also
addressed council during the
Tuesday meeting. Ward re-
quested that council consider
allowing the Ruritan Club to
place a storage structure
close to town hall. The club
has numerous records that
they have to maintain but is
currently storing the records


in various homes. When the
club has a meeting, they do
not have easy access to re-
trieve any records should the
need arise. The'structure
would probably be an 8 X 8
metal storage building or
something comparable. The
Ruritan Club will assume all
liability for the structure.
Councilman Tommy Mathis
noted the contributions that
the Club provides to the town
and Cotuncilin.hi 'fe Melton
made a motion'vNhich carried
unanimously, that the town
allows the structure to be
placed behind town hall.
Melton made a motion,
which carried, that the "city
dump" or landfill located be-
hind the cemetery be locked
and that additional signage
be placed on the gate as to
what can and cannot be
dumped there. The DEP pro-
hibits anything that is not
burnable from being placed
on the property. If the mate-
rials cannot be burned, then
they should be carried to the
DeFuniak Springs site. The
only materials allowed at the
Paxton site are brush and
tree debris.
Councilwoman Ann Sex-
ton is in the process of obtain-
ing bids to fence in the cem-
etery. The funds.for the fenc-
ing were appropriated in the
2004-05 budget. Prior to the
new fence being put up, they
will remove the existing old
fencing between the old and
new part of the cemetery. The
new fence will be a chain link
type of material.
City Clerk Suzan Davis
will check with Doyle Yarbro,
the contractor surveying the
new cemetery, to see the sta-
tus of having markers placed
on the lots. To date, the town
has paid $1,250 toward the
project. Resident Bill McRae,
employee of Glymco, also
noted the benefits of having
the rows within the lots iden-
tified. When you are trying
to find a specific lot, then you
can follow the row and then
down to the specific lot.
The Dixie League baseball
season is well underway. The
league has worked with city
officials to help alleviate
problems that had been oc-
curring in previous seasons.
The only remaining problem
is parking. Game attendees
are still parking all around
town hall and the post office.
Mathis noted, as fire chief,
that this created a hazard to
the public. As a first re-
sponder if anyone were hurt
on the fields, fire trucks and
other emergency rescue ve-
hicles would be unable to get
through the area. Seconds
count in an emergency and
the hindrance of vehicles il-
legally parked could poten-
tially cause great problems to


the public, Mathis warned.
Parking regulations are en-
forceable and illegally parked
vehicles can be fined and
towed.
Kemp addressed a letter of
request from residents on
Shuttles Road wishing to
hook-up to Paxton's water
system. The residents are ap-
proximately one-half of a mile
off of a two-inch line. Cur-
rently there have been no wa-
ter p`essire or other com-
plaints from customers hooked
up to this line. Previously
council voted that no new cus-
tomers could hookup to lines
that were one-quarter of an
inch in diameter or less. As
this is not the case on Shuttles
Road, Sexton made a motion,
which carried unanimously
that the four additional cus-
tomers be hooked up to the
water system.

Councilwoman Jenice
Armstrong provided updates
on the street department for
council and the public. Coun-
cil voted to renew the contract
with ARC in order to allow the
Department of Transportation
to continue roadside mainte-
nance for the town.
Armstrong has also requested
that the potholes on Webster
Lane and Clear Springs road
be repaired as soon as weather
conditions dried out. Work
orders have been submitted to
replace the blown light bulbs
in the streetlights on Adams
Street and Hwy. 331.
City attorney Lorriane
Bytell addressed council re-
garding Sunshine Laws prior
to the conclusion of the meet-
ing. This month's highlight
law dealt with agenda items.
Bytell informed council that
posting the agenda puts the'
general public on notice as to
what will be discussed at the
council meeting. The agenda
should include enough topical
information that a person
would be able to determine if
they wanted to be included in
the council meeting. This pro-
tects the people's right to be
heard.

Council can discuss other
issues that are not included on
the agenda, if the issue is sig-
nificant to the public. Bytell
discouraged the council from
voting on any item not in-
cluded on the agenda unless it
required an immediate action
by council. Whenever possible,
the public should be notified
of agenda items and allowed
an opportunity to know what
is occurring and participate in
the process. If immediate ac-
tion is required on a non-
agenda item the council may
vote on the issue even if it has
not been posted and the pub-
lic has not been made aware
of the issue.

Commissioners and
Ronnie Bell, county adminis-

lutions with Mattison. Bell
suggested that it might be
time for the county to con-
sider a training coordinator.
"We fall short at promoting

missioner Larry Jones, who
also wanted to see county

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 21, 2005


2nd Annual Kiwanis Club


"Tahke A Kid Fishing


i


, F7


MOST FISH CAUGHT-Levi
Sasser (21 fish).


On Saturday, April 9, the Kiwanis Club of DeFuniak Springs and several other business sponsors
joined together at the Lake Yard to hold their second annual "Take a Kid Fishing" day. The weather
provided a beautiful day, and around 10 a.m. the lakeyard began to fill with children and their parents
armed with fishing poles and great hopes of hooking the big one.
Almost 100 children, aged from 5 to 14, registered to be eligible to win prizes and catch fish from the
lake. After stopping at the registration table, they were handed a free "Take A Kid Fishing Day" shirt,
courtesy of CHELCO. From there, they were handed a free red "Ace Hardware" bucket for their catch.
If they came with no fishing pole, Harold Carpenter and wife were there handing out free full-outfitted
bamboo fishing poles to the children. After stopping at the bait stand (courtesy of Ard's Cricket Ranch)
and being apprized of the rules for fishing, they began to drop their hooks into the water.
There was a photo booth manned by Freda Ash and Karen King. Concessions were provided by nu-
merous DeFuniak merchants, such as McLain's Steakhouse, Wal-Mart, Sonic and numerous Kiwanians,
who both donated money and baked desserts.
The day was filled with fun and games, exciting moments when a little one's pole began to bend and
plenty of laughs. At last count, there were 121 fish hooked by the young fishermen. At the end of the day,
all of the prizes that were provided by Bass Pro Shops, Ace Hardware, CHELCO, Triangle Chevrolet
and James McHenry's Allstate Office were given away to the children.
The Kiwanis Club expressed their heart-felt gratitude for everyone who made this day a great suc-
cess, and are busy making plans for next year's "Take A Kid Fishing Day."
The Kiwanis Club is a civic organizaiton whose purpose and goal is to facilitate, strengthen and
promote the lives of children.

The DeFuniak Springs
Garden Club has reland-
scaped the Blue Star Marker
at Hwy. 90 and U.S. 331.
: The club weeded, fertilized,
and added a dozen native
blue -flag iris around the base
of the marker. Then they
planted a row of nine penste-
mon, and a row of 19 native


coreopsis, followed by two
rows of dwarf nandinas, that
the city donated that had
been removed from the 331
medians. Behind the
nandinas, the group planted
a row of 16 stary rosinweed,
a yellow flowering native
plant. The area looks much
brighter and should have

rennials that were chosen.
The Blue Star Marker is a
tribute to service men and
women. Florida Federation
of Garden Clubs sponsor
these markers throughout
the state highways.
The club's Native Plant
Sale and Education Day was
a great success. Almost 400
people came to the library for
the event on Mar. 12. The
Garden Club expresses their
deep appreciation for all the
community support they re-
ceived for the project. Profit
from the sale will help to con-
tinue to beautify and com-
plete The DeFuniak Springs
Library Reading Garden, an
educational native plant gar-
den. A granite entrance sign
was put in place just in time
for the event. Ward-
McDonald Memorial Com-,
pany generously donated a
beautifully engraved granite
stone sign that welcomes all
visitors.
Twelve club members
planted 37 new plants and
weeded at the garden on Mar.
18. On Mar. 22 in the pour-
ing rain five members
planted an additional 148
native plants. Many plants
are already starting to bloom.
Florida native plants make
great choices for beauty and
attract butterflies and birds.
They are virtually disease
and pest free and easy to
maintain.
A presentation was given
by Gina Jogan at the April
meeting. She is a Florida
Federation of Garden Clubs
Floral Design Schools in-
structor and a nationally ac-
credited flower show judge.
The group enjoyed the pro-


gram and those who stayed
for the hands-on workshop all
took home their own floral de-
sign.
The hostesses for the April
meeting were Faye Hardy,
Jean Anderson, Marie ..
Lathinghouse, Ann Robinson,
Celia Robinson, and Carolyn
Mora. Upside down umbrel-
las that spilled over with
spring flowers were used as [
the table decorations. The
hostess group made edible- J -
flower pots as part of the re- flwA p
freshments. v
There will be an awards
luncheon at 11:30 on May 4.
The luncheon will be held at
the First Methodist Church
fellowship hall.

Culpepper bagged the role

Gardening tips for spring planting


By DARA DOBSON
WALTON COUNTY
MASTER GARDENER
At last, spring has finally
arrived! Chances of another
frost or freeze are minimal
and we can safely, at least
relatively safely, put out
those warm season bedding
plants It's time to plant those
seedlings you started indoors
and your tender perennials
can be moved back outside or


be planted in your flower
beds. Once the night tem-
peratures stay above 55 de-
grees, your plants are safe.
April weather is so beauti-
ful it just makes us garden-
ers intoxicated with thoughts
of what new plants we are go-
ing to add to the garden this
year. Many perennial plants
are peeking out of their old
brown leaves that protected
them through the winter. It's
safe to remove dead plant


matter now and let all that
new spring growth burst
loose. Choose an endless ar-
ray of colorful plants but take
time to prepare the soil and
fertilize.
Now is the time to add or-
ganic matter to soil. The or-
ganic materials like peat
moss, mushroom compost,
homemade compost, animal
manures, rotted oak leaves
will make a garden a success.
This initial step will be well
worth the time. Using natu-
ral fertilizers like fish emul-
sion will produce beautiful
results. There are a variety


of very efficient slow release
fertilizers on the market.
After preparing the soil for
the new season, it's time to
plant. Remember to mulch
them after putting them in
the ground. This will make
the plants even happier. I
prefer organic mulches that
break down and rot in time
and add to the quality of the
soil. Things that occur natu-
rally in the yard work great:
pine needles, fallen leaves
and chipped up trimmings
from pruned shrubs.

foliage, butterflies fluttering,

Remember to prune and
shape spring-flowering
shrubs after they bloom. This
is especially important for
azaleas, camellias, quince,
whitchhazel and forsythias.
If we prune these species too
late in the year we will lose
many of the next years spring
flowers.
It's time to feed spring flow-
ering bulbs with bulb fertil-
izer as long as the foliage is
still green to help with bulb
development for next year's
blooms. This is a good time
to divide those overcrowded


perennials. Many of the self-
seeding annuals need to be
thinned now, too. This is a;
great time to share with'
friends, or transplant some of"
those seedlings to other ar-t
eas. Using the same plant

in a garden will give it a'

Local church establishes f

memorial church library


The Pleasant Grove Pres-
byterian Church in Euchee
Valley has established a
church library in memory of
two of its members.
A.O. Campbell and
Hubbard S. Campbell were
life-long members of the
church and gave honorable
service in virtually every of-
fice. In addition, both men
were very active in the com-
munity. The church is estab-
lishing the library, not only
to honor the memory of their
life and faithful devotion, but
to offer the library as a ben-
efit both to the church and
the community.
A.O. Campbell was born on
February 1, 1929 and died
September 26, 2003. Follow-
ing his graduation from
Tivoli High School, he served
in the United States Army
from 1951-53. Upon his re-
turn home, he married
Lillian Jackson. He received
a Bachelor of Science. degree
in social studies from Florida
A&M University and his
masters degree in adminis-
tration from Alabama A&M
and Florida State universi-
ties. After teaching for twelve
years, A.O. became the direc-
tor of Exceptional Student
Education, Student Services
and Home School Education,
retiring from the Walton
County School District in
1992 after 35 years of out-
standing teaching, men-
toring, and leadership ser-
vices.

In 1975, Campbell won a
seat on the DeFuniak City
Council and served in that
capacity for 28 years. He was
elected president of the Pan-
handle League of Cities,
board of directors for the
Florida League of Cities, and
board member for the

a little about their favorite
books and/or authors. These
special guests ranged from
city and county officials to


doctors, lawyers, and reli-
gious leaders. These and
other local community lead-
ers read to the students from
their favorite books, sharing
those stories that affected
their own lives.
Students also decorated
classroom doors in honor of

It was an unrehearsed Presidential moment that cap-
tured America's Chief Executive in a situation you might
never otherwise see.
After George W. Bush's Second Inauguration, there
was a prayer service at the National Cathedral, and an
offering was taken, for which the President was unpre-
pared.
What the camera captured was his father, former
President Bush, reaching over his son's shoulder from
the pew behind him.
He was slipping the President some money to put in
the offering plate. It happened quickly and skillfully, but
the camera got it, and you just had to smile.
All the President had to give was what his father gave
him. That's all any of us have to give -what our Heav-
enly Father gives us. Because, as the Bible says, "Every
good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from
the Father" (James 1:17).
In 1 Corinthians 4.7, Paul asks, "What do you have
that you did not receive?" Any ability, money, success,
insight, charisma, good looks or good health. You didn't
achieve them you received them! So pride is out the
window.
"And if you did receive it, why do you boast as though
you did not?" Whatever we have to give was given,to us
by our Father. So you give without pride, without a need
for recognition, without thinking that when you give, you
have some right to control.
God says: "It is required that those who have been
given a trust must prove faithful" (1 Corinthians 4:2).
We are trusted by God with things that are His. Like
the master in Jesus' parable who "called his servants
and entrusted his property to them" (Matthew 25:14).
Notice His property.
You have no right to claim it's yours any more than
the bank saying when you go to withdraw it, "Oh, I'm
sorry I've fallen in lQve with your money and it's mine
now."
We need an honest evaluation of how we spend our
money, our talent, and our energy.
God has trusted us gifts from His hand. If not mate-
rial things, then personal traits, abilities or
influence?which are more valuable than money. What-
ever you've been given, who are-you using it for? For your
advancement, your agenda, or God's agenda and the ad-
vancement of His kingdom?
The President didn't pocket what his father gave him
to give. He put it where it belonged in God's hands for
God's work.
Have we pocketed for ourselves what God gave us to
give away? Much of God's work on earth is constantly
underfunded and understaffed.
God is sending, money, talent and leadership His work
requires. But is the supply line breaking down because
some of us are keeping what we were supposed to be in-
vesting in His work?
It's about so much more than money it's all kinds of
gifts the Heavenly Father gives to His children, and about
the reason He gave them to us. It's a trust.
He's trusting us to give back to Him what He's given.
to us for the things He cares about, and to do it with
humility, and to do it with joy. Anything else, in the an-
cient words of the prophet Malachi, "is robbing God."
We are having Revival services with Robert Hagan
from Ghana, Africa, beginning this Sunday morning, and
each night we will begin at 6:30 p.m., through Wednes-
day night. Please attend, and bring a friend!

out the jewel of truth.
The Gospel is fearless. It boldly proclaims the truth,
whether people like it or not. We must be equally faithful
and unflinching in the way we live, speak, and conduct our-
selves.
Yet the Gospel is also very gentle. Mark the Spirit of Christ:
"A bruised reed He will not break." Some people are sharper
than a thorn-hedge. Such people are not like Jesus. Let us
learn to win others by the gentleness of our words and ac-
tions.
The Gospel is very loving. It is the message of the God of
love to a lost and fallen race. Christ's command to His dis-
ciples was, "Love one another." The Gospel never excuses
sin, but rather pardons it through the atonement of our Lord
Jesus Christ.

By Dr. Robert M. Jaye

Paul wrote to the Christians in Philippians 1:27 these
words: "Only let your conservation be as it becometh the
Gospel of Christ." He meant more than our talk, but the
whole course of our life and behavior in the world. It signi-
fies the actions and privileges of citizenship. Because we
are citizens of heaven, our way of life must be that which
becomes the Gospel of Christ.
The Gospel is very simple. Therefore Christians should
be very simple and plain in their habits. There should be
about our manners, speech, dress, and behavior that sim-
plicity which is the very soul of beauty.
The Gospel is preeminently true. It is gold without dross.
The Christian's life would be lusterless and valueless with-

By PATRICK CASEY
FSU and Florida took hits
to their basketball programs
as juniors Von Wafer, An-
thony Roberson, and Matt
Walsh all declared them-
selves eligible for the upcom-
ing NBA draft this summer.
None of the three have signed
with an agent, allowing a re-
turn to college to play ball if
they are not drafted.
The NFL released the 2005
regular season schedule last
week on their website. The
complete schedule along with
national television games
can be found at www.nfl.com:
The NFL will hold their an-
nual draft this weekend as
coverage can be found on
ESPN and the NFL Network.
Tony Davis lasted, only one
season as,the Chipley Tigers
head basketball coach. Davis
was relieved of his basketball
coaching duties after finish-
ing the 2004-05 campaign
with a 23-7 record. Davis re-
placed.veteran coach Rick
McCullough this year after
McCullough decided to as-


sume the head coaching job
of the Chipley girls program
for 2004-05. Details of the
dismissal were vague, leav-
ing rampant rumor and
speculation to circulate in the
area as to why the former
Chipley football and basket-
ball star was let go. Stay
tuned.
Christa Bosenberg picked
up Walton's lone tennis win
as the Walton girls loss to
Bay High 6-1. The Walton
boys tennis team got blanked
7-0 by the Tornadoes.
FSU held their annual
spring football game this
past weekend in Tallahassee.
Actually, it was a scrimmage,
as the Seminoles had so
many injured offensive line-
men and wide receivers that
the team was severely lim-
ited in the amount of plays
that they could run on of-
fense. The scrimmage lasted
less than two hours and
proved that the defense is
way ahead of the offense
heading into the fall.


WALTON'S CHRISTIE WICKERSHAM winds up and
lets it soar across homeplate during the Arnold game: The
Lady Braves went on to win 9-2.


Paxton sweeps Central


By PATRICK CASEY
The Paxton Bobcats
pounded out 11 hits as they
scored 10 runs in the top of
the fifth inning in route to a
12-2 District 1, Class A vic-
tory over the Central Jag-
uars.
Jordy Currid went 2-for-4
.with four runs knocked in as
Paxton(13-5) sent 14 men to
the plate in the top of the fifth
to beat Central for the second
time this season.
Austin Garrett pitched five
innings for the win and got
an unassisted double play


from catcher Josh Golden to
get out of a bases loaded jam
in the third inning that was
the turning point of the
game.
Seth Neale had a pair of
hits, including a bunt single,
that helped the Bobcats score
a pair of runs in the top of the
third to take a 2-1 lead.
The win leaves Paxton with
a 9-1 record in the district
and likely tied with Rocky
Bayou for the #1-seed in the
upcoming district tourna-
ment that will be played on
the OWC campus.


Walton girls split district games


Christie Wickersham al-
0. lowed just three hits in going
the distance -as Walton de-
feated Panama City Arnold
for the second time this sea-
son 9-2. The Lady Braves
pounded out eight hits along
with+ -wa}k, as theyjunmped
to a 3-0 lead after one inning
and never looked back.
: iJewel Spence led the way
against the Marlins as she


had three singles and a walk
on the afternoon. Jana
Ramsey added a pair of
singles and Summer Renfroe
scored three runs as the
Braves built a 9-0 lead.
Walton did not have as
much success againsf-
Marianna as the Lady
Braves dropped their second
contest to the Bulldogs this
season 8-2. Jill-Mathis hit a


3-run homer to power the
Bulldogs to the win as the
Braves end the district slate
with a 3-5 record in the regu-
lar season.
Walton will be the #4-seed
in the district tournament set
to begin in Pensacola Caff i
lic on Monday, April 25. Wal-
ton will face #5-seed Panama
City Arnold in the opening
round of the tournament at

sented their individual ca-
reer fields: Chrissy Howell,

the contributions made to
the WMS students.

Local families needed


for exchange students


ASSE International Stu-

share of household responsi-


abilities, as well as being in-
cluded in normal family ac-
tivities and life-styles.

Peach Creek subdivision


clears planning commission


By TIANA LARSEN
"I think the county will get
complaints eventually and
this will be an issue over
time," said Eddie Updike,
representing Rinker Materi-


als, owner of a concrete plant
on the Intracoastal Water-
way near Peach Creek.
Updike was referring to the
truck traffic up and down Old
Ferry Road, where Peach


INDUSTRIAL TRUCK TRAFFIC on Old Ferry Road in
Pt. Washington will soon be passing by new homes on their
Way to US 98 if the Peach Creek Subdivision gains-final'
approval from the Walton County Board of County Com-
missioners. A developer plans 263 lots on both sides of Old
Ferry Road, north of US 98.


Creek Development of North-
west Florida LLC intends to
construct a 263-lot single-
family residential subdivi-
sion on 164 acres along both
sides of Old Ferry Road.
The site abuts the S&S
Materials industrial prop-
erty, which citizens may re-
member as the scene of a two-
plus year battle between
Sikes and residents of rural
Pt. Washington.
When Sikes sought to build
an asphalt plant at the end
of Coochee Road, which con-
tinues north off of Old Ferry
Road, he took his case to Fed-
eral Court after being denied
a permit by the county. In the
end Sikes received a permit
from the county for the as-
phalt plant, but it has not
been built.
Two concrete plants are lo-
cated on land surrounded by
the Sikes property, and re-
cently, Rinker Materials, one
of the largest rock mining
operations'iinv south Florida,
purchased one of the concrete
plants.
The noise and truck traffic


from the existing concrete
plants were often cited by
opponents of the asphalt
plant, who wanted a quiet,
rural neighborhood.
Updike told the planning
commission that 45 or 50
trucks a day go up and down
Old Ferry Road, and Rinker
is concerned about possible
future complaints when
people move into the new
subdivision. In addition, a
material supply company is
going in next door, and that
would add probably 40 or 50
more trucks, he said.
The developer's engineer
said that no driveways would
be located on Old Ferry Road.
The Walton. County plan-
ning commission recom-
mended approval of the
Peach Creek Subdivision and
sent it on to the Board of
County Commissioners for
final approval. A motion for
approval by Planning Com-
missioner Clayton Adkinson
included the"condition-that
future buyers be made aware
that industrial traffic is lo-
cated in the neighborhood.

Attorney General coming to county


By RON KELLEY

Florida Attorney General
Charlie Crist will be in De-
Funiak Springs as the guest
of the Walton County Tax-
payers Association and the
Walton County Chamber of
Commerce on Thursday,
April 28.
According to WCTA presi-
dent Bonnie McQuiston Crist
will be in DeFuniak Springs
at the Chautauqua Hall of
Brotherhood in the Lakeyard
from 10:30 a.m. to noon and
at the Walton County Cham-
ber of Commerce offices from
12:30 to 2 p.m. Chamber
members will address Crist
for the first half hour at each
location and the rest of the
time will be allotted to the


general public.
McQuiston said the WCTA
plans to thank Crist for tak-
ing the lead role in eliminat-
ing most of the Sprint fees for
calls between south Walton
and DeFuniak Springs.
"Many businesses have
said they really see the dif-
ference on their phone bill
and I know many individu-
als also see a personal sav-
ings," she said.
The WCTA led the effort to
have the fees waived. Until
recently, calls between DeFu-
niak Springs and south Wal-
ton cost 20 cents each, which
cost county government and
the taxpayers additional
dollars each month.
William Pennington, finan-
cial supervisor for the Clerk


of the Circuit Court said the
county commission and
clerk's office had seen a de-
crease of about $6,000 over.

ure does not include private
citizens, the Walton County
School District, the Walton
County Sheriff's Office or any
of the various constitutional
officers that offer services in
DeFuniak Springs and in the
South Walton Courthouse
Annex.

The 20 cent fees have not
been eliminated throughout
the entire county. Freeport'
and Paxton still pay such fees
at this time. McQuiston said
a separate meeting has been
scheduled between Attorney
General Crist and-a Sprint

In addition to thanking

School Board approves personnel contracts


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County School
Board met on Monday, April
18, at the Tivoli Administra-
tive Complex in DeFuniak
Springs to discuss the bi-
weekly agenda.
Members of the board ap-
proved the purchase of a par-


cel of land adjacent to Bay
Elementary School from
Clifton and Teresa Gunter
that will allow for a complete
and safe bus entrance to be
maintained with this acqui-
sition over the next several
-years. The agreed upon price
by the two parties of the par-


cel of land is $215,000 and
passed on a 3-1 vote.
A partnership was formed
with the St. Joe Community
Foundation and Okaloosa-
Walton College to establish a
cooperative initiative aimed
at establishing an accelerated
academic program within


South Walton High School.
The South Walton High
School pilot program will
capitalize on OWC's long list
of successful partnerships
with Walton County and pro-
vide a number of accelerated
See CONTRACTS Pg 2C


St. Joe Community Foundation gives grant to OWC


Thanks to a $300,000 grant
from the St. Joe Community
Foundation (STJCF), an in-
novative new program to ex-
pand access to accelerated
academics for high school
students in Walton County
will become a reality this fall.
The initiative, a partnership
with Okaloosa-Walton Col-
lege and the Walton County
School District, will begin at
South Walton High School
with the goal to expand the
concept to other Walton
County sites.


"The single best predictor
of college success is the qual-
ity and intensity of a
student's high school
courses," noted Jane
McNabb, executive director
of The St. Joe Community
Foundation. "With this
grant, we hope that the na-
ture of the curriculum in the
pilot program with South
Walton High School and
OWC will make a huge dif-
ference for SWHS college-
bound students. I personally


believe that the more de-
manding the pre-college,
dual enrollment and ad-
vanced placement
coursework is the better for
all students."

"The Walton County School
District is excited about this
partnership," said Carlene
Anderson, Superintendent
for the District. "This venture
will enhance the curriculum
options and increase oppor-
tunities for collegiate studies.
We welcome the community


support and look forward to
increased collaboration with
Okaloosa-Walton College."
Anderson noted that the
expanded access to acceler-
ated study options as well as
enhanced academic rigor
within existing high school
curriculum will work to en-
sure college-readiness and
work preparedness. "This
partnership is just one step
closer to making Walton
County School District the
best in Florida," said Ander-
son.


By DOTTY NIST
"We're driving more people
to the destination, more
people, than ever," com-
.mented Jeff Shusterman of
The Marketing Workshop,
advertising consultant for
the South Walton Tourist
Development Council (TDC.)
In an April 13 report to the
tourism council, Shusterman
reported that there are now
more than 14,000 lodging
units in the 'Beaches of South
Walton' area. This represents
a 10 percent increase over
the past year and no less
than a 10,000-unit increase
since 1995, Shusterman ex-
plained.
Shusterman's report fo-
cused on information from
fall 2003 through summer
2004. It was derived from
data gathered from 16 key
bed tax collectors represent-
ing 85 percent of the total
short-term rental units in
south Walton.
Funded by bed taxes on
accommodations in the spe-
cial district south of the bay,
the TDC is tasked with "put-
ting heads" in those beds to
help drive the local economy.
With the increase in lodging
inventory, that task is becom-
ing more daunting every
year. Advertising, marketing,
and public relations are im-
portant tools in meeting the
challenge. Building, main-
taining and repairing public
beach and bay accesses and
keeping the beach clean and
healthy are another part of
the picture for the council.
Shusterman told the coun-
cil members that their recent
marketing efforts have met
with much success.
Both rental rates and occu-
pancy rates are up over the
previous year, he said.
"For the first time since
1999 the number of units,
average daily rate, and aver-
age occupancy have all in-
creased," Shusterman com-
mented.

The average daily rate for
the study period is $207, a


12-percent increase over the
previous year. Average occu-
pancy is also up to 50 per-
cent, a four-percent increase
over last year.
Seventy-one percent of the-:
lodging inventory is now nori .
gulf front, with 29 percent.',
being gulf-front.
Condominiums account for,
half of the units, houses 22
percent and hotel rooms 23
percent.
The average length of stay
for visitors is nine nights.
The average party size is four
people.
"I think the council should
be very proud," Shusterman
remarked. His recommenda-
.tion was to continue with the
same type of marketing be-
ing done currently.
A report by Joann Saucier,
TDC financial officer, showed
Walton County bed tax collec-
tions up 22 percent for Feb-
ruary 2005 over the same
month last year, compared
with a 6.3 percent increase:
this February for the Pan-
handle as a whole.
The council approved 25
events for next year's Au-
tumn Tides shoulder season
festival. The events were rec-
ommended by the volunteer
Autumn Tides Committee.
TDC member/Autumn
Tides Committee member
Donna Bauer commented
that the committee is very
excited about next year's
events, and particularly
about two event applicants
from DeFuniak Springs and
the area north of the bay..
Autumn Tides is now spread-
ing more evenly throughout
the county, even as far as
Paxton with the Heritage
Fair, Bauer explained.
The committee has focused
on the need to "be authentic
to what Walton County is,"
Bauer added.
In other business, Tracy
Louthain, formerly of TDC
public relations consulting
agency Edelman, was wel-
comed aboard as the council's
new public relations man-
ager.

More developments moving right along


By TIANA LARSEN
The planning commission
had a busy evening at their
April 14 meeting. In spite of
the recent shortage of county
planners, 17 projects made
their way on to the agenda.
The largest of these, the
WaterSound North Develop-
ment of Regional Impact, a
large St. Joe development in
the eastern end of south Wal-
ton, was continued until the
next planning commission
meeting on May 12.
Several other projects in
the general vicinity of Inlet
Beach were approved, includ-
ing The Heron at Inlet Beach,
a 9-lot single family subdivi-
sion on the northwest corner
of South Wall Street and
Walton Rose Lane; Inlet
Heights, an 18-lot single-
family subdivision on 2.34
acres north of U.S.98 on
Holly Leaf Lane; and West
Shore Place, a 48-lot subdi-
vision at the corner of U.S.98
and West Shore Drive.
Moving a little further
west, a conceptual plan
called Forest View Village
Planned Unit Development
was recommended for ap-
proval in spite of reservations
from county legal staff.
This mixed-use project, in-
cluding 468 single-family
lots, 64 multi-family units
and 160,000 square feet of

me nbers cnclaim 40.5 cents

The board also approved

weeks of speculation that
there would be many changes
among the schools' principals.

Walton High School to take

non-residential, is planned
for the former Regional Utili-
ties sprayfield.
Regional recently sold off
the 91- acre parcel on the
north side of U.S.98, about
three miles east of CR-395.
Presently, the site is desig-
nated large scale agriculture,
but an application for a land
use change is included in the
large scale amendment cur-
rently working its way
through the system.
The planning commission's
approval was conditional on
the land use change, which
must also be approved by the
state Department of Commu-
nity Affairs.

County legal staff ex-
pressed concern that the
project could be subject to
challenge since the land use
district has not actually been
changed yet. "Projects are
supposed to be approved
based on the current compre-
hensive plan," warned Kira
Coley, staff attorney.
Ken Goldberg, represent-
ing the developer, disagreed.


"Any project is subject to
challenge," he remarked. "We
are only asking for a concep-
tual approval. It is no differ-
ent from other projects with
conditions," Goldberg said.
The planning commission
agreed, and recommended
approval to the Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC), who will make a final
decision next month.
Two other developer's rep-
resentatives asked for clarity
on the policy, since, in the
past, the planning depart-
ment has required the land
use category to match the use
proposed on the application.
"We have not been allowed
to do this in the past," said
Darrell Barnhill, who repre-
sents several property own-
ers who also have pending
land use amendments. "I'll be
here Monday morning with
the project applications," he
said.
Commissioners cautioned
Barnhill that the BCC will
make the final decision, and
that it may not apply to simi-
lar but different projects.

Light requested for another dangerous intersection


By DOTTY NIST
An intersection that, ac-
cording to a resident, has
been the site of one fatality
and numerous accidents is
getting attention by Walton
County.
This is the U.S. 98/Forest
Shore Drive in Miramar
Beach, on a very congested
section of the highway.
Salvatore Patti, a neigh-
boring resident, brought the
need for a traffic signal at the
intersection to the attention
of District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows. Meadows
brought it up in discussion at
the April 12 Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners meeting. Patti- also
described the situation at the
meeting.
"There are turn lanes but
these are insufficient to do
the job of metering traffic
flow," Patti noted.
"Left turning motorists
from Seascape...and Taisho
Restaurant, Bay Bridge
Landing, and residents on
"the horth side of the highway
are having a difficult time


negotiating the cross over,
especially when traffic is
heavy and east/west bound
(U.S.) 98 traffic is entering
the cross over. There are con-
tinual near misses because
traffic is flowing in a chaotic
state at the median cross
over. Left turning motorists
from the south or north side
of (U.S.) 98 having gained
access to the cross over must
wait patiently because their
view has been blocked by left
turning east/west bound mo-
torists entering the cross
over from (U.S.) 98, he con-


tinued.
Patti thanked the commis-
sioners for their actions re-
garding the two dangerous
U.S. 98 intersections at
Grayton Beach and Point'
Washington/Seagrove, where
lights are planned, deputies
are posted, and flashing
lights and warning signals
are now in place.
The BCC directed County
Administrator Ronnie Bell to
approach DOT about the pos-
sibility of a traffic signal at
the U.S. 98/Forest Shore
Drive intersection.

TDC Board approves


2005 Autumn Tides events


While many businesses are
focused on gearing up for the
influx of summer visitors, the
Walton County Tourist De-
velopment Council is already
thinking about increasing
visitation to the area this fall.
At the monthly board meet-
ing, the TDC board unani-
mously approved the 2005
Autumn Tides Events. "We
are thrilled to see the in-
creased number of Autumn
Tides events taking place in
September to help us extend
our season," said Jeanne
Daily, board member and
president of Newman-Dailey
Resort Properties.
"This roster of stellar of
events really represents the
diverse offerings we have in
Walton County and will help
us market the area as a year-
round vacation destination."
Now in its fourth year, the
Autumn Tides promotion
continues to grow and gain
momentum. The events
showcase the area's great
appreciation for food and
wine, art and culture, nature,
healthy beaches, sporting
events and family celebra-
tions. The council approved
twenty five events that met
the criteria set forth by the


Walton County TDC.
The 2005 events include
annual favorites such as Trek
for the Coast, Annual
Baytowne Film Festival,
Taste of 30A, the Flutterby
Festival and the Annual
Back to Nature Festival as
well as new events that ap-
peal to diverse audiences.
The Art of Dining at Gulf
Place, for example, will
tempt those who enjoy great
food and shopping by auc-
tioning off local merchandise
while attendees- dine under
the stars.
Tides, & Brides will serve
the growing number of
brides-to-be looking to have
that perfect beach wedding.
A Chair Affair will attract
visitors who enjoy public art.
Similar to the creatively de-
signed cows placed in public
spaces around Chicago, the
Beaches of South Walton ver-
sion will include Adirondack
chairs designed by local art-
ists and businesses, whose
imaginative creations will be
on display in communities
throughout Walton County.

Autumn Tides serves as an
umbrella under which the
Walton County TDC markets


these existing and new
events to increase visitation
to the destination during
shoulder season from Labor
Day weekend to the end of
December.
"After the passage of the
fourth cent of bed tax, this
year's promotion of Autumn
Tides will include additional
marketing support," said
Kriss Titus, executive direc-
tor of the Walton County
TDC. "The increased market-
ing budget will allow the
TDC to improve its advertis-
ing schedule, enhance its web
presence and strengthen its.
public relations outreach
both regionally and nation-
ally. With such a great event
line up and strong marketing
force, we are extremely opti-
mistic for a strong shoulder
season."

Martha Ingle
Q: Is there a wait-
ing period in the state of
Florida for getting married
after a couple applies for a
marriage license? Are blood
tests required, and do you
have to apply in the county
you live in? Can a minor ap-
ply for a license?
A: Florida law im-
poses a 3-day waiting period.
However, if both parties have
taken a 4-hour premarital
preparation course given by a
minister or counselor who is
registered with the Clerk of
Circuit Court, the waiting pe-
riod is waived and the license
fee is reduced. If on ne ap-
plicant took the course, the
waiting period is still required.
If neither applicant is
a Florida resident, the waiting
period is not required. If one
applicant is not a Florida resi-
dent, and the other is a Florida
resident and has taken the pre-


marital course, the waiting pe-
riod is not required. A judge can
waive the delayed effective date
for good cause.
Blood tests have not
been required since this test was
abolished October 1, 1986. A
marriage license may be applied
for and solemnized in any
Florida county. Minors, who
under oath, swear that they are
parents or expectant parents of
a child may apply. The preg-
nancy must be verified by a writ-
ten statement from a' licensed
physician. A previously married
minor may also apply. A person
age 16 or 17 may apply with the
consent of both parents or guard-
ian, unless the parents are di-
vorced and only one parent has
full custody.
Once recieved, the
marriage license is good for 60
days. If the marriage is delayed
and the license expires, the
couple can either re-apply or re-
quest an extension through ju-
dicial action.

Hurricane recovery, growth top annual meeting agenda


While growth in
CHELCO's service territory
continues to bring chal-
lenges, Hurricane Ivan
added another level of chal-
lenge last fall, CHELCO
CEO and General Manager
'Gene Smith reported to the
'membership at the
,cooperative's 64th annual
meeting April 16.
As many still struggle to


recover almost eight months
after Hurricane Ivan, Smith
reported to members during
his address that CHELCO
was fortunate following the
hurricane.
"Although Opal put us one
hundred percent out of busi-.
ness for a period of time, we
had approximately seventy
to seventy-five percent of our
system off during Ivan,"

Smith said. "What differen-
tiated Ivan from Opal was
that, prior to Ivan, south
Florida had already been
struck by two hurricanes;
another was arriving before
we completed the cleanup
from Ivan. We were very for-
tunate to be able to secure
contractor and cooperative
crews that were leaving
south Florida and were able
to stop on their way home to
assist in our recovery."
Storm recovery following
Ivan went more smoothly
than any recovery effort in
his 40 years in the electric
utility industry, Smith re-
called. He attributed the suc-
cess of the operation to the
people in the field doing the
work and the ones behind the
scenes directing the recovery.
Smith said his greatest
thanks had to go to
CHELCO's members for
their patience and persever-
ance following the weather
disaster.
Now that Hurricane Ivan
has passed, the cooperative
continues to face challenges
brought on by tremendous
growth throughout the sys-
tem.
South Walton has been the
prime growth area for the
past few years, he reported,


but growth has expanded to
Freeport with new subdivi-
sions and commercial devel-
opment. Growth has really
picked up in Walton County,
north of Freeport, and in the
Mossy Head area.
Two developments are in
the planning stages in Mossy
Head, and a Mossy Head In-
dustrial Park has been a re-
cent news item, Smith said.
Growth has also reached
north Okaloosa County in
the Baker, Auburn and Lau-
rel Hill areas.
In order to provide service
to these expanding areas,
Smith said CHELCO must
add employees, as well as
consultants, to handle the
many tasks associated with
growth.
Last year, CHELCO ended
the year with 40,000 mem-
bers, a great milestone in the
co-op's history. Smith re-
ported that, according to the
current trend, more than
4,000 new members will be
added during 2005.
"This requires lines to be
built, substations to be built,
and other necessary infra-
structure to provide service
to these new members," he
said. "We have recently ap-
proved a long range engi-
neering study, and Alabama


Electric Cooperative, our
power supplier, is procuring
land for a new substation in
the Holt area."
Smith explained the new
substation is necessary to
keep up with growth in the
Holt area, in particular, an
expansion of the Holt Indus-
trial Park. The new substa-
tion should be complete in 12-
18 months, and other substa-
tions and lines will be built
in the future to continue to
provide the reliable service
members are accustomed to
having.
CHELCO Services Inc.
(CSI), a subsidiary company


of CHELCO with 55 employ-
ees, has also expanded, and
a right-of-way clearing divi-
sion was added last year. The
company also does under-
ground construction work.
Smith called CSI a good
example of economic develop-
ment because the company
provides another job opportu-
nity in the area and was able
to hire some former Perdue
employees who lost their jobs
when the poultry plant shut ,
down last year.
In addition to growth,
Smith reported that increas-

Seaside
Community
Foundation artists
and scholars
presents lecture
Dr. Judy Bense, head of the
archaeology program at the
University of West Florida,
will present an illustrated
lecture the Seaside commu-
nity followed by an archaeo-
logical field trip to Camp
Helen State Park on Satur-
day, May 7, 2005.
Bense's PowerPoint pre-
sentation will feature high-
lights of the results of two
decades of archaeological
studies conducted in north-
west Florida including both
pre-Columbian Indian and
post-Columbian historical ar-
chaeology.
The talk will include ex-
ceptional images from exca-
*vating shipwrecks in
Pensacola Bay from the colo-
nial and later historic peri-
ods, images and information
about the unusual 18th cen-
tury Spanish colonial
presidios along the north-
west Florida Gulf Coast, and
the largest water-powered
mill in northwest Florida:
Arcadia from the Antebellum
early 19th century. The pre-
sentation will feature both
how archaeology is done and
northwest Florida's interest-
ing archaeology.
Indians thrived in this re-
gion for 10,000 years before
Columbus, and with all the
significant environmental
changes which have occurred
along during these millennia,
they developed several dis-
tinct ways of life. Soon after
Columbus discovered the
Americas, Spanish galleons
and fleets began to cruise
along our coasts and bays.
'.For 300 years northwest
Florida was under Spanish
control and they have left a
* remarkable archaeological
record, especially in the
Pensacola area.
In 1559, Tristan de Luna
attempted t'o settle
Pensacola,'- at"-'as hbrb'aa
hurricane six weeks after

Courtroom B

571 U.S. Highway 90
DeFuniak Springs, Florida


.bol b" C


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 d,,l
present oral and written comments '
regarding the establishment of the
District. If adopted, the ordinance will Seagro
establish the NatureWalk Community V P
Development District, name its initial 3
Board of Supervisors and designate the "
land to be serviced by the District. ulf of Mexic .
The land area proposed to be served -
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 the
relationship of the petition as submitted by the Petitioner to the six factors listed in section
190.005(1 )(e), Florida Statutes.
A statement of estimated regulatory 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, Florida, and the District, and describes the type of individuals most
affected by the ordinance as the landowners within the District. The SERC estimates that 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.

PUBLIC NOTICE
The Joint commission of Accredita-

conduct an accreditation survey of
COPE Center, Inc., April 26-29,
2005. The purpose of the survey will
be to evaluate COPE's compliance
with nationally established Joint
Commission standards. The survey
results will be used to determine
whether, and the conditions under
which, accreditation should be
awarded to COPE.


Joint Commission standards deal
with organizational quality of care
issues and safety of the environment
in which care is provided. Anyone
believing that he or she has perti-
nent and valid information about
such matters may request a public
information interview with the Joint
commission's field representatives
at the time of the survey. Informa-
tion presented at the interview will
be carefully evaluated for relevance
to the accreditation process. Re-
quests for a public information in-
terview must be made in writing
and should be sent to the Joint Com-
mission no later than five working
days before the survey begins. The
request must also indicate the na-
ture of the information to be pro-
vided at the interview. Such re-
quests should be addressed to:
Division of Accreditation
Operations
Organization Liaison
Joint Commission on Accreditation
of Healthcare Organizations
One Renaissance Boulevard
Oakbrook, Terrace, IL 60181
The Joint Commission will acknowl-
edge such request in writing or by
telephone and will inform COPE of
the request for any interview. COPE
will, in turn; notify the interviewee
of the date, time, and place of the
meeting.
This notice is posted in accordance
with the Joint Commission's re-
quirements and may not be removed
before the survey is completed.

Our "Cash Flow" based approach to financing real estate will demonstrate to you
the power the right loan can have in allowing you to build wealth (equity) at an
accelerated rate.

Most people finance real estate the same way they would cars or other depreciating assets.
Real estate is different because it goes up in value and needs to be financed differently to
minimize your interest payments.

Learn more about the secrets of a "Cash Flow" based, rather than the traditional
"Amortization" based financing approach...Your home is most likely your biggest asset and
needs an "Asset Manager" loan to optimize your debt management.

Call today and we will reveal the secrets the wealthy have known for years!

April 23.

built in 1936, operating as
6 the Ritz Theatre until the
1950s, when the Martin fam-
4 ily bought and renamed the
building. The doors closed in

Following a period of dete-
rioration, the Martin began
4 renovations in 1987, and
opened its doors again in
7 1990.
"Death of a Salesman" was

actors, directors, designers

of Sale. Arthur Miller died on Feb-

back and forth between the
past and the present.
His daydreams and recol-
lections of happier, more
hopeful times serve to com-
fort and torment him. Finan-
cial worries, and concerns
over the future of his family,
lead Loman to consider des-
perate measures. At the
same time, he clings to the
hope that everything will
turn out for the best.
Mike Stone plays Willy
Loman. He strikes a fine bal-
ance between two sides of the
character. Loman is petty,
whining, a philanderer, and
a bully to his family.
At the same time, he is
also loving, kindhearted,
hardworking, and, in a way,
noble. "Attention must be
paid" to him, says his wife to
their two sons.

The part has the emotional
range of any of the greatest
classical or Shakespearean
roles, and the actor who plays
it assumes a great burden.
Stone carries the load, but
he is not alone.
"Death of a Salesman" has
a cast of 14 characters, in-
cluding leads, strong sup-
ports, and juicy one-scene
parts. The roles are all well-
cast.
Among the standout per-
formances are Barbara
McMinis as Linda Loman,
Willy's loyal wife, and Troy
Monachelli and David Garcia
as sons Happy and Biff
Loman. The three do a great
job moving back and forth in
time, and with the physical
and emotional demands of
their roles.
Harry Schaefer and Logan


Pope are likewise excellent.
Schaefer plays Charley, the
Loman's neighbor and rela-
tive. Schaefer bears a slight
resemblance to the late Art
Carney, and shares Carney's
facility with comedy and
drama.
. Pope plays Willy's brother
Ben, the "success" of the fam-
ily, who drifts in an out, of-
fering advice and a siren-like
call to come into "the jungle"
and make a fortune, as he
did.
Set design by Barbara
McMinis, lights by Rex
Knight, and sound by Mike
Land give the actors plenty
of levels and areas to play
in, and moods to play off of.
"Death of a Salesman is a
genuine actor's piece, free of
spectacular special effects or
diversions. As such, it re-
quires a great deal of concen-
tration from actors and au-
dience.
The ensemble kept focus,
even during a momentary
power interruption, and de-
spite the ringing of a cell

REALISTIC SET AT MARTIN THEATRE'S "Death of a Salesman."


CARE

From 6C

Dental Clinical Licensure
Examination administration
will be given by the North
East Regional Board of Den-
tal Examiners, Inc. (NERB).
NERB will offer the exami-
nation four times annually in
March, June, September and
December at both schools of
dentistry in Florida -- the
University of Florida and
Nova Southeastern Univer-
sity. In addition, as a service
to the applicants for licen-
sure, preliminary scores are
being given to them immedi-
ately upon completion of the
examination making Florida
the first in the nation to of-
fer this service.
Agw'an6bi said lower in-
come individuals, who have
been shown to be three to
four times less likely to have
a dental visit and two to
three times the dental needs
of higher income persons,
were feeling the greatest im-
pact of limited access to deni-
tal care.
