WRECKAGE OF SEMI TRUCK fallen on old section of Clyde
Wells Bridge.



DFS man killed

in accident on

Clyde Wells Bridge


By BRUCE COLLIER
A'DeFuniak Springs man
was killed when his vehicle
was struck by a fishtailing
trailer on the Clyde Wells
Bridge. The accident oc-
curred on April 27.
Florida Highway Patrol
investigators Trp. Richard
Noiseux and Cpl. Kenneth
Davis report that Randall D.
Sterling III, 52, of 278
Carroll Lane, DeFuniak
Springs, was driving a
flatbed semi trailer north on
U.S. Highway 331.
Approaching from the op-
posite direction was a pickup
truck driven by Thomas Jay
Hicks, 56, of Chatt Holley
Road, Santa Rosa Beach. In
the truck with Hicks were
two passengers, Sofia Rafael,
33, and Ignacio Cruz, 30,'
both of DeFuniak Springs.
The truck was towing a
trailer carrying a Bob Cat
mower.
According to the report,
the trailer carrying the Bob
Cat began to fishtail, cross-


ing into the northbound lane
and directly into Sterling's
path.
The left front of Sterling's
truck struck the left rear of
Hicks'vehicle and the trailer.
The Bob Cat reportedly
broke loose and also struck
Sterling's vehicle.
Sterling's vehicle was
forced into the east concrete
wall of the bridge. The cab of
his vehicle detached from the
frame. Both the cab and
Sterling were propelled over
the bridge onto the old por-
tion of the U.S. 331 bridge
below.
Sterling was fatally in-
jured. Hicks received non-in-
capacitating injuries. Rafael
sustained minor injuries, and
Cruz was unhurt.
Both vehicles were totally
wrecked. It is unknown
whether alcohol or drugs
were involved. Sterling was
wearing a seatbelt. Hicks,
Rafael, anl Cruz were not.
Chargesl'are reportedly
pending.


By BEN GRAFTON
At a well-attended meeting
in City Hall on April 28, the
Freeport City Council heard
a recommendation from the
City Planning Board to deny
a request for rezoning a 2.16
acre plot to permit the con-
struction of town homes near
the intersection of Blueberry
Street and SR-20. The Plan-
ning board recommendation
was based in part on con-
cerns that the request would
create an enclave of high den-
sity residences in an area
zoned for low density and
commercial property.
The council heard argu-
ments for the request from
Doug Porter, a consultant for
the developer and against the
request from Lou Crawford
Cleveland speaking for her
family, the owners of the sur-
rounding sixty acres. The
council, voicing support for
its planning board and stat-
ing that additional study was
needed to develop a compre-
hensive plan for the area,
denied the request.
A revised request to rezone
only the southern most por-
tion of the 1.4 acre Knight
property for commercial use
with access frQom Blueberry
was approved'. The balance of
the property will retain its
residential R-3 zoning.
Steve Hall, speaking for
Freeport Developers LLC,
submitted a change to the
developers plans that would
restrict the whole develop-
ment to single family resi-
dences. Hall said the change
reflected an adjustment to
the market. The council also,
approved a recommendation
from Eglin Air Force Base of-
ficials that the homes in this
development, receive extra
soundproofing and that buy-
ers be advised that the homes
were located near an Air
Force "low fly" corridor. The
council approved the develop-
ers request and also the Air
Force recommendation.
The Planning Board's rec-
ommendation to approve the
Jackson Square condo-
minium development of fif-
teen units was approved by
the council subject to a modi-
fication to comply with tree
preservation rules and to a


provision to install stop signs
at the North Jackson Street
intersection, if needed.
City Planner Latilda
Henninger presented the
first reading of a proposed
ordinance that would allow
the Planning Department to
give letters authorizing re-
pairs of extensive storm dam-
age to owner/residents of ex-
isting homes built on prop-
erty zoned as industrial by
Walton County when an-
nexed by the city. Henninger
said the ordinance would,
"solve the problem for ever-
more."
The council approved the
reading and authorized ad-
vertising for the second read-
ing.
The council approved a.pro-
posal by City Attorney
Clayton Adkinson that re-
quests by property owners for
annexation into the city be
grouped and processed once
every three months. The next
cycle will be advertised in
July. To do this, complete re-
quests must be in to the city
by June 1.
City Engineer Charles Pe-
ters announced that the
N6rth Bay water project is
complete. The final cost is ex-
pected to be about $44,000
below budget. The old wells
must still be closed, but be-
fore action, is taken the city
will check to see if there is a
requirement to retain two of
them for use as monitor
wells.
Peters reported that a citi-
zens group in the Indian Bay/
Trout Creek area has offered
to fund up to $277,000 of a
project to extend water from
the North Bay system to
their subdivisions. Peters
says. that feedback from
other parties interested in
water from the North Bay
system has also been re-
ceived.
Peters also pointed out that
extending the line to the east
would require crossing Eglin
Air Base property in the right
of way and that time re-
quired to get a permit to do
this will probably take about
one year.

County Fire Manager plans to improve services


By TAMMY KEARCE

As population and tourism
numbers continue to rise, the
need for emergency services
in Walton County is increas-
ing as well. Although three
county fire districts have
added a fulltime firefighter/
paramedic position to their


ranks during the last five
years, there has been no co-
ordinated, countywide strat-
egy to upgrade fire service.
Fire Manager Ed Rivers
plans to change that by be-
ing personally acquainted
with each department, as-
sessing needs and identifying
resources. His first day on


FIRE MANAGER ED RIVERS.


the job, May 2, 2005, the Her-
ald-Breeze sat down with
Rivers as he outlined his du-
ties and goals for Walton
County Fire Services.
Herald: What is your back-
ground in emergency ser-
vices?
Rivers: I have been involved
with fire and EMS since
1989. I went to fire school in
Jacksonville, Florida, worked
with Orange Park Fire/Res-
cue and went to paramedic
school in Lake City. Before
being named Fire Manager I
was a division chief in South'
Walton Fire District.
Herald: What immediate
steps will you take to coordi-
nate Walton County fire ser-
vices?
Rivers: I will become famil-
iar with the commissioners'
objectives and assess what
everybody is looking for.
Then we will develop a plan
of what is in the best inter-
est of the residents and visi-
tors of Walton County. There
is a lot of rural tourism here
[in north Walton], and my
philosophy is that ifI always


do what is in the best inter-
est of the people, I can never
go wrong. So we [Rivers, the
commissioners and the fire
chiefs] are going to try and
put together a system that
will give everyone the best
bang for the buck and pro-
vide the best level of care pos-
sible,
Herald: Do you think more
firefighter/paramedic posi-
tions will be created?
Rivers:: Yes, the ones that we
have now are working out
very well and obviously more
are needed, so we plan to ex-
pand that. We do not know
where or how many yet, but
that is going to be part of our
plan when we get out and
look at everything. We need
to determine where they will
be best placed.
I think the best thing for
Walton County-would be to
develop strong "combination"
departments. Those are de-
partments in which both volt
unteer and paid members
work together.

The city of Paxton


to elect mayor in


special election


By KERRY STEWART
Paxton has been without a
mayor since March 22. At
that time Paxton town coun-
cil accepted a letter of resig-
nation from previous mayor
Mark Warren. Upon accep-
tance of Warren's resigna-
tion, council chairman Bobby
Kemp was appointed to tem-
porarily fill the mayor's va-
cancy until a special election
could be held.
The council then had be-
tween 60 and 90 days to hold
an election for the mayor's
position. Paxton town clerk
Suzan Davis has been work-
ing with the Supervisor of
Election in Walton County,
Bobby Beasley, to schedule
the events leading to the spe-
cial election.
The town closed the regis-
tration books on April 25.
This means that residents
could register to vote until
April 25 for the special elec-
tion. State statute requires
that the registration books be
closed not less than 29 days
prior to an election.
Absentee ballots will be
available at town hall begin-
ning on Thursday, May 5
through Tuesday, May 24.
Town hall is open between
the hours of 7:30 a.m. and
4:30 p.m. Monday through
Friday if voters need to vote
absentee.


The qualifying dates for
running for Mayor were April
25 April 29. State statute
requires the qualifying pe-
riod be not less than one
week. In the event that only
one person were to qualify in
the special election that per-
son would fill the vacancy
and no election would be
held. In the event that no
person were to qualify in the
special election, a person
would be appointed to fill the
position. The Governor
would make the appoint-
ment.
At the close of the qualify-
ing period, two candidates
had qualified to run for
mayor. Previous mayor Hay-
ward Thomas has qualified
for the special election. The
other candidate for mayor in
the special election is Wanda
ThomasSmith.
The special election for
mayor will be held on Tues-
day, May 24 because state
statute dictates a special
election must be held not ear-
lier than 60 and not more
than 90 days after the Super-
visor of Election receives no-
tice.
The voting polls will be
open from 7 a.m. through 7
p.m. on Tuesday, May 24 at
the Paxton Agricultural
Complex located on Hwy. 331
north.


By BRUCE COLLIER
Effective June 1, Mike
Standley will step down as
city manager of DeFuniak
Springs. Standley has
served in that position for 21
years.
Standley has accepted the
post of general manager for
Regional Utilities, Inc. "It
was a tremendous opportu-
nity. The offer was just too
good to pass up," he said.
According to current RUI
general manager Dewey Wil-
son, "RUI operations have
grown so large that we need
the help. Mike will handle
the day to day operations."
RUI has plans for $80 mil-
lion in infrastructure
projects over the next five
years. RUI has hired addi-
tional engineers and is cur-
rently looking for qualified
construction and mainte-
nance employees.
Wilson said that Standley's
background in accounting
and management of daily
operations, along with' his
understanding of local is-
sues, made him the best
choice for the job.
"Things just fell into place,"
said Standley.
Standley will spend the re-
mainder of his time at City
Hall making sure that ongo-
ing projects and operations
will continue smoothly. Assis-
tant City Manager Larry
Laird will remain, as well as
administrative assistant
Joanie R. Runge.
Among the projects still in
progress is the improvement


of the municipal airport, in-
cluding taxi ways, hangars,
fencing, and other buildings.
Standley's successor will
also have to address the
tasks of supplying water to
outlying areas under devel-
opment, municipal beautifi-
cation, and recreational
projects.
Standley said that the city
manager's office is set up so
that "the ship won't sink if
you lose anybody."
Standley began as city
manager on March 1, 1984.
He lists some of the accom-
plishments of his .term: in-
frastructure improvement,
housing, economic develop-
ment, improvement to recre-
ational and playground ar-
eas, and the creation of en-
terprise zones.
"I think the quality of life
has improved across the
board," he. said.
DeFuniak Springs Mayor
Harold Carpenter said that
the city is "very sorry to see
Mike go. Our loss is
Regional's gain."
The mayor added that
Standley did "an outstand-
ing job," and that we'ree
about to see how good he was.
There are things on the
drawing board about. to hap-
pen."
The mayor said that, the
city council will meet soon.
Questions to be considered
are whether to name Laird, as
acting city manager, and
whether to seek applications
nationally or locally for
Standley's successor.

Chamber President Pam
Tedesco, to discuss the nomi-
nation process.


The National Mental Asso-
ciation recognizes May as
Mental Health Month. Each
May for over 50 years, Men-
tal Health Month has im-
proved the health and lives
of millions of Americans.
The theme for 2005 is
"Mind Your Health" and
COPE Center wants people
to know that caring for their
minds, as well as their bod-
ies, is good for overall health
and key to their success at
home, at work, and at school.
As many as 8 million
Americans who have serious
mental illnesses do not re-
ceive adequate treatment
each year, according to
Harvard University.
In 2002, the American
Journal of Psychiatry noted
that only about 21 percent of
children in the United States
who need mental health ser-
vices actually receive them.
"COPE Center is helping
the people of Walton County
care for their minds with
mental health treatment for
the whole family," said
Rachel Gillis, executive di-
rector. "Whether someone is
grieving and depressed about
losing a loved one, needs
marital counseling, is a vic-
tim of sexual abuse, or is an
emotionally disturbed child,
they can get the help they
need at COPE. Remember
that seeking help is not a sign
of weakness, taking care of


yourself is a sign of strength."
COPE Center has many
programs available to help
families get more out of life
and help people recover from



mental illness. "The staff at
COPE Center wants to let
people know that recovery
from mental illness is pos-
sible. With the right treat-


ment and support, you can
lead a full and productive
life," Gillis said..

tact COPE at 850-892-8045.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


PERSONAL COMMENTS C T HT F


From Front


Precocious or preposterous?


By RON KELLEY
Although I am less and less a fan of television, I have
recently found myself caught up in a new series called
Nanny 911 and a related show called Super Nanny.
If you have seen either of these programs, you know that
: it's a 'realty show' in which an English nanny goes into an
. American home for one week and offers the parents instruc-
tion on how to handle unruly children and repair dysfunc-
tional families.
I find it fascinating. Invariably, the children are the first
and most obvious problem. Each week, we see hordes of
little ankle-biters and drape-apes rampaging through the
house, screaming, kicking, cursing, whining and, generally
getting their way by outsmarting and out-manipulating
their parents.
Ironically, their behavior is the easiest problem to fix. The
trick is how the nanny helps the parents realize that it is
they who are the problem and that the children's behavior
is nothing more than the reflection of the Mom and Dad's
well-intentioned, but misguided approach to parenting.
Once the parents take the nanny's advice and change their
parenting techniques and approach, the children start to
respond more positively and the bad behavior begins to dis-
appear.
To be fair, these unruly households are extreme examples
and have, thus far, always featured two-parent households
where the mother stays home. Obviously, there are situa-
tions where these techniques would be difficult to imple-
ment. However, the logic is still sound and these basic tech-
niques could be introduced into most households. I urge.
parents that are having problems with young children to
watch a few episodes.
: I know that, as adults, we've all be in situations where
we have witnessed or been forced to endure the company of
a misbehaving child or group of children, while their par-
ent sits there chuckling about how darling and precocious
: the little monsters are.
This just makes my palm itch. In fact, after a couple of
minutes, my palm is itching so badly, I have to leave the
. room.
I know exactly how my folks would have handled such
behavior believe me, I know.
Even now, when I see wild, undisciplined children, I have
a tendency to blame the parents some. Children will al-
' ways push the limits and will instinctively do anything they
are allowed to get away with. That's why they are consid-
* ered children and why we adults are tasked with teaching
: them how to behave appropriately.
; The other day, I was at a local discount store and saw a
boy who looked to be about 14 years old. He had multi-col-
ored, neon-tinted hair and was wearing his Goth-wannabe
black t-shirt and bulky black pants, festooned with dozens
?of silver buckles and studs. His face was pierced so much,
,,he resembled one of my aunt's pincushions. (I hope some-
'one has taken loads of photographs :of this little darling, so

Editor,
In a recent front page article of the Northwest Florida Daily
News, the adjective, "languished" was used to described the
downtown DeFuniak Springs business district. I invite any-
i one to visit this area, during normal business hours and see
; if they can even find a place to park!
While DeFuniak Springs downtown has certainly suffered
the pains of growth and a shifting economy in the past, in
the last year, it has enjoyed unprecedented, quality growth
of new businesses and new commercial investors who recog-
nize the beauty and uniqueness of our historical downtown
business district. While I have only been located in the down'
town area for a six short months, the relocation of this area
has offered both my customers and myself some extraordi-
nary opportunities that have resulted in business growth
like I have never seen.
The point of this letter is to assure the public of DeFuniak
Springs that downtown in not dying. Downtown is not hang-
ing on. Downtown has turned into a hub of bustling activity
that should make both the business owners and community
leaders of DeFuniak Springs proud of their efforts.
Robert Nelson
DeFuniak Springs


that one day, when he grows up, he'll be able to look back
and wince at how goofy he looked.)
As I stood there observing his youthful attempts at "cool-
ness," I couldn't help but think that somewhere around here
was a parent that needs a good spanking.
I mourn the rise of a new breed of young parents who
seem more concerned about maintaining their problem-
child's self-esteem than instilling a more appropriate sense
of right and wrong. They lavish their children with more,
bigger, better toys because they want their children to have
everything they did not. They have forgotten that not hav-
ing a thing made attaining it more special, more valuable
and something to be appreciated.
These parents seem obsessed with the idea of being their
child's best friend. Mom, Dad news flash your children
already have friends and can make more any time they
want, but they only have one set of parents. So, be the par-
ent. Even when your child rebels and you feel your popu-
larity slipping, be the parent. Teach meaningful values, help
your child earn your respect and admiration. This will en-
sure a healthy sense of self-esteem.
In closing, let me leave you with a little pearl of wisdom
from former House Majority Leader Dick Armey, who said,
"Three groups spend other people's money children, thieves
and politicians. All three need supervision."
Hehehe, spoken like a true English nanny.



Editor:
I am trying to find a lawyer that will sue Walton County.
Here's the story; we bought our dream property here in
Walton County in 1990. This neighborhood, in the early
eighty's, was deeded and approved by the county as Chappell
Estates subdivision. We were so happy to move into a sub-
division. The intent was neighborhood, single lots where you
could put a home or mobile home. There were five mobile
homes here besides mine, and there was a church, one home
and a big building.
This big building was illegally placed there without per-
mits, and this building was never on the tax role until 1992.
It should have been torn down. Instead, the county built
our neighborhood off of this illegal building instead of our
homes.
The first thing the county put in after this was another
large building on two lots. It was as almost as big as the
lots, only two parking places. Even though we had no 'semi
signs' on the streets, this building moved in a carpet ware-
house on half the building. The carpet warehouse had the
need of semi delivery daily.
The other half of this building was an engine-testing place,
. for race car engines. The engine could -D heardi-lr,in. beach.
to bay all day and half the night.'Thd:sodebooks that the
county used to changed our zoning from subdivision neigh-
borhood were never approved by anyone.
Anyway, nobody wanted to build here anymore due to the
noise. Then the county continued to allow big building after
big building, most heavy industrial. We are now living in an
industrial park. We fought the county for the last 11 years,
trying to make them stop, but they would not. Even all the
books and zoning they have changed to ever allowed heavy
industrial here or industrial at all. But it's here and the
county refuses to use their codes to enforce anything to any-
one but us.
In 11 years, we've been to hell and back and continue, to
this day. I am looking for a lawyer that will take notice that
the county never had any right to come into our registered
deeded subdivision and turn the subdivision and our dreams
of it into an industrial park. We think we got a hell of a
lawsuit here.You will not even believe what we have been
through and how much money we have had to spend.
Well, 'if you're at this point, thank you for at least reading
this letter. In all that I have written here, there is a lot
more things to show a good lawyer all we had to wrongfully
endure.The county zoning for this area is commercial/resi-
dential. I just want every Walton County citizen and tax-
payer to know that this will be coming out of the taxpayers
pocket. The old commissioners, since it was not their money,
would just say "go ahead and sue" to anyone that went up
against-them. They wouldn't listen or care.

Legislation which autho-
rizes an individual to use
force against an attacker or
intruder was signed into law
by Governor Jeb Bush. Gov-
ernor Bush signed Senate
Bill 436 into law with the
bill's sponsor, Senator Durell
Peaden (R-Crestview), by his
side.
Currently, Florida statu-
tory law states that Florid-,
ians may use force, including
deadly force, to defend them-
selves or others within their
home if necessary. Florida
Common Law however, pro-
vides that one may only use
deadly force if all reasonable
means to escape have been
exhausted. The bill ad-
dresses that inequity by au-
thorizing a person to use
force, including deadly force,
against an intruder or at-
tacker in one's dwelling, resi-
dence or vehicle under speci-
fied circumstances. It further
provides that an individual is
justified in using deadly force
under certain circumstances
and provides immunity from
criminal prosecution or civil
action for using deadly force
in these circumstances.


"Several cases were
brought to my attention in-
volving people around the
state whose homes had been
violated by intruders," said
Senator Peaden. "The vic-
tims later discovered that,
had they used force and
killed the intruder, there
was nothing in Florida's laws
to protect them from being
held liable for the death of
the intruder. This legislation
remedies a significant flaw
in the current system."
The "castle doctrine" cre-
ates an exception to the com-
mon law duty to retreat. The
doctrine maintains that an
individual has a right to de-
fend his or her home in the
face of danger, even to the
extent of using deadly force.
This bill improves the castle
doctrine in Florida by ex-
panding the concept of what
is a "castle" and by expand-
ing the group of persons en-
titled to its protection. The
bill also extends the right to
defend one's self while in a
vehicle or place of temporary
lodging, including guests in
another person's "castle."


Legislation repeals

costly, second

primary election


Legislation sponsored by
Senator Charlie Clary (R-
Destin) and Senator Bill
Posey (R-Rockledge) in re-
gards to Florida's electoral
process, passed the Senate.
Committee Substitute for
Senate Bills 1268 and 1956
permanently repeals the sec-
ond primary election.
A second primary occurs
-when no single candidate in
a primary election wins a ma-
jority of the vote. Currently,
ten states hold a second pri-
mary or "runoff' election-
Alabama, Arkansas,-Florida,
Georgia, Louisiana, Missis-
sippi, North Carolina, Okla-
homa, South Carolina, and
Texas.
Florida law currently re-
quires three elections to be
held in a nine-week period.
The first primary is held nine.
weeks prior to the general
election; if a second primary
is necessary, it is held four
weeks later, and the general
election is always held on the
first Tuesday following the
first Monday of November. In
the early 1980's, the federal
government sued the State of
Florida stating that the nine
week span did not provide
sufficient time to prepare
absentee ballots, mail them
to overseas voters, and have
them returned to ensure a
fair and accurate election.
That argument prompted
the Legislature to suspend
the second primary in the


past two.election cycles, 2002
and 2004. However, without
the passage of this current
legislation, the process of
holding a second primary, if
necessary, would resume in
the next election cycle.
"It is virtually impossible
to maintain the accuracy and
integrity of an election when
that election is, essentially,
competing with two, other
electJ~ng'fQrhe t i i e and.p t-
tention of elections supervi-
sors and staff and even the
voters" explained Senator
Clary. "The legislation allows
us to address that lack of at-
tention by removing oneof
the elections within the
nine-week period, giving su-
pervisors of elections and
their staff an appropriate
amount of time to do their
jobs efficiently and correctly."
By providing a nine-week
span between two elections-
the primary and the general
election-the bill allows suffi-
cient time to properly count
and validate the ballots,
claim the legislators.
"Ultimately, this legisla-
tion will ensure that the state
of Florida continues to con-
duct reliable and precise elec-
tions." concluded Senator
Posey. "Floridians deserve
every assurance that their
elections are held in an atmo-
sphere in which integrity and
accuracy are promoted, and
this legislation is another
great step in that direction."

There is an adage that says, "A fool and his money are
soon parted." That's as true today as it was when it was
first penned. However, with the all-pervasive Internet tech-
nology dominating every facet of people's personal and busi-
ness lives, it's getting harder to distinguish between fact
and fiction.
Thieves are using the Internet to pull off scams against
trusting and unsuspecting individuals, especially seniors.
Many send official-looking e-mails, such as the false Regions
Bank notice shown here, that usually direct potential marks
to another link and asks for personal bank information, ac-
count numbers, social security numbers and more. The no-
tice goes out to as many people as possible, even those who
.do not have accounts with the bank, in hopes of reaching an
actual bank customer.
Some scams arrive by fax and tell a convincing tale about



Reg.onm


millions waiting to be claimed by a foreign government
worker who is unable to access the money directly, but will
pay hundreds of thousands to the lucky person who helps
them. This scam usually involves receiving what turns' out
to be a bogus check from some off-shore bank and then mak-
ing out a new check to send back. The unsuspecting 'helper"
soon discovers that they have not only sent the thief thou-
sands of dollars, they are also liable for cashing the bogus
check.
Conventinal wisdom tells us that if a thing looks too good
to be true, it probably is. Law'enforcement authorities warn
consumers about disclosing any personal information to any
anonymous source, even if it looks official. When in doubt,
call the agency directly or a local law enforcement agency to
verify that such a request is legitimate.

Office at (850) 892-8186.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MAY 5, 2005


State Attorney's Office:

Making the people's

case in Walton County


By BRUCE COLLIER
Greg Anchors has been a
Florida state attorney for 15
years. Referred to in otherju-
risdictions as "district attor-
neys" or "prosecutors," state
attorneys prosecute all crimi-
nal charges made by law
enforcement authorities.
Specifically, Anchors is an
assistant state attorney and
supervisor for Walton
County. Walton c 'unt:. is
one of t.,,,' counties within
the First Judicial Circuit,
which also includes
E.-c ., ii ,. Santa Rosa, and
Okaloo.sa counties.
The office of State Attor-
ney 1. ': l..1 .dI Cir-
cuit, an elected position with
a:. i. .. -. term, is currently
held by William "Bill"
Eddins. Eddins' headquar-
ters are in Pensacola, but of-
fice space is reserved for him
at every county branch in the
circuit. Anchors says that
Eddins typically comes into
the Walton County office
once a week.
Anchors supervises three
other assistant state attor-
neys at the office. They are
Alvin Schlecter, Tom
Murphy, and Kim Brown. In
2004, they handled a
caseload of 1,400 felonies,
2,000 misdemeanors, 2,000
worthless check cases, and
350 juvenile proceedings in
Walton County.
An increase in the number
of cases involving metham-
phetamine labs, as well as
sexual abuse of children, has
led to bringing in part time
assistant state attorneys,
specialists in these areas.
Special prosecutors are also
brought in for capital cases.
: In addition to criminal
.matters, the state attorney's
office also represents the
state. at.,r:.e 'inue bond hear-
ing--. arnd i.n- appeals firor-
county to c irci-it court. Cir-
cuit to district appeals are
handled by the state Attor-
ney General.
Anchors estimates that
about four of every 100 case


Co0mbi ed


(7)


files ends up in trial. The re-
mainder are pled, dismissed,
or otherwise disposed of
without trial. The Florida
practice of discovery deposi-
tions plays a large part in the
negotiation of plea agree-
ments.
Discovery depositions are
made out of court, and enable
both state and defense attor-
neys to assess the strengths
and weaknesses of their cas-
es.
The circuit court calls a
criminal docket every two
weeks, variously covering
arraignments, motion hear-
ings, probation matters, and
trials. The state uses the
time between these dates to
prepare cases.
The state attorney receives
about 100 files from law en-
forcement officers per week.
Intake, as well as file upkeep,
scheduling victim support,
and office administration,
are performed by a staff of 8
administrative specialists,
including Cathy Bass, Chris
Cash, Katie Barto, Michelle
Geoghagan, Sue Thorn, and
Melinda Miller, The state at-
torney also has an investiga-
tor, Walton County Sheriff's
Office veteran Jack (Brad)
Trusty.
Anchors works a five-day
week on the average, prefer-
ring to be in from 8 a.m. to 5
p.m. He maintains an open
door policy for law enforce-
ment officers, discussing
their investigations, as well
as providing them with legal
direction. Anchors credits
the increasing number of
meth lab arrests to the high
quality of their work.
When not at the office or in
court, Anchors' duties as pas-
tor of his Laurel Hill church
keep him occupied.
"That, and 17 grandchil-
dren,' he add.. "I stay pretty,
busy."

The state attorney's office
is located in DeFuniak
Springs at 524 Highway 90
East.

volunteering to be on the
Walton County Community
Emergency Response Team
(CERT).
The CERT program edu-
cates people about disaster
preparedness for hazards
that may impact our area
and trains them in basic di-
saster response skills, such
as fire safety, light search
and rescue, team organiza-
tion, and disaster medical
operations.
CERT members can assist
others in their neighborhood
when professional respond-
ers are not immediately
available to help. CERT
members also support emer-
gency response agencies/by
taking a more active role in
emergency preparedness
projects in our community.
CERT benefits our commu-

throughout the county to be-
come CERT members. Ten
volunteers are needed from
south Walton, Freeport, De-
Funiak Springs and the
Paxton area. Members will
be trained and equipped by
the Walton County Emer-

Attorney General visits


north and south Walton


Rv lnAT KP7T.T1)7V rif ifwl Rin.r


Florida Attorney General
Charlie Crist visited DeFu-
niak Springs and Santa Rosa
Beach on Thursday, April 28.
Surrounded by community
leaders and elected officials
on the rear veranda of the
Chautauqua Hall of Brother-
hood, Crist was the guest of
the Walton County
Taxpayer's Association, a po-
litical activist organization
that had sought Crist's help
in eliminating phone charges
between DeFuniak Springs
and south Walton.


ulisb 1LU wtewll v 3prinU rLep-
resentatives and did get the
telecommunications com-
pany to agree to dispense
with the fee. However, Pax-
ton and Freeport residents,
as well as those living in the
unincorporated areas north
of the Bay, are still charged
a fee to call south Walton.
Crist said he was not
through negotiating with
Sprint and plans to meet
again soon in an effort to dis-
pense with all fees for inter-
county phone calls.
Meeting with reporters be-
fore greeting the public, Crist


. 'l


also voiced his strong support
of Gov. Bush's bill to allow
citizens to use deadly force
whenever and wherever they
feel threatened. He said he
does not expect to see an in-
crease in street violence. In
fact, according to Crist, vio-
lent criminals will be less
likely to attempt to assault
law-abiding citizens, thanks
to this bill. Crist said the law
would even protect citizens
who did not have permits to
carry concealed weapons in
public.
Crist asked for public sup-
port for the "anti-murder
bill." So far, the Legislature
has not passed the bill, which
is aimed at putting felons
who violate their parole or
probation back in jail, rather
than leaving the question up
to the discretion of judges.
The question, of course, is
over the cost of building ad-
ditional cells and paying the
cost of housing more inmates
for longer periods of time. He
urged supporters to mount a
telephone campaign to their
state senators and represen-


tatives regarding the passage
of the bill.
Crist, who has not officially
announced his intention to
run for governor, acknowl-
edged that state polls show
him as the leading Republi-
can contender at this point.
Although, he still did not
publicly confirm his intention
to run, he did say that his
views on big issues are very
similar to those of Gov. Jeb
Bush and said voters would
not see a startling difference


between Gov. Bush's admin-
istration and his should he
decide to seek the office.
After talking with citizens
and officials, as well as mem-
bers of the Walton County
Chamber of Commerce, who
provided meeting rooms for


the visits, Crist left to attend
a second reception at thp
Chamber offices in Sant,
Rosa Beach.
To find out about his visit
to south Walton, check Tiana
Larsen's story in this edition
of the Beach Breeze.


WALTON COUNTY TAXPAYERS ASSOCIATION presi-
dent Bonnie McQuiston introduced Crist to the crowd and
thanked him for helping to cut the cost of phone service in-
side Walton County.

Loop sewer project is under
construction and that design
wuzlk for the Bay Area sewer
system is going ahead.
Robert Jones, consultant to
the city for community devel-
opment block grants, dis-
cussed several possibilities,
including sanitary sewer ser-
vice in the Mallet Creek area,
a parcel for a public park on
Eucheeanna Road, and land
for the sidewalk grant that
could be used to satisfy the

matching fund requirement
for this year's grant request.
The council approved the
purchase of a new dump
truck and "help wanted" ads
for employees to work in the
utility billing, wastewater
and water departments.
The completion of the au-
dit for the '03-'04 year is com-
plete. The council will invite
the auditors to present their
findings at a future council
meeting.

Herald: Is the Urban Inter-
face Task Force (a task force
designed to fight wildfires
that threaten populated ar-
: 'eas) up and running yet?
Rivers: That project has been
resurrected by Red Bay Fire
Chief Jeff McVey and DFS
Firefighter Charles Burney.
It is not up and running yet,
but it is certainly in good
hands. Jeff used to work for
forestry, so we are lucky to be
able to use him in that capac-
ity.

Herald: Do you see consoli-
dation of Walton County's
Fire Service in the future?


From Front

Rivers:: That is something we
are going to discuss with all
the departments. There is
talk of a merger between
some departments that
would fall under the heading
of Walton County Fire/ Res-
cue. If that happens, it will
have to be planned carefully
and we will see where that
goes. It is a touchy subject
and we have to handle it deli-
cately, but I think that we
will find something that fits
for us.
We have an unusual situa-
tion here in Walton County.
We have independent dis-
tricts, dependent districts

Nothing here is mine or ours;


By BRUCE COLLIER
A'Florida Highway Patrol
trooper has resigned follow-
ing his arrest on a charge of
DUI while on duty.
Trooper Phillip Scott
Shank, 44, was directing
traffic at the scene of a fatal
car crash that took place in
Okaloosa County on the
morning of April 27.
Other troopers working at
the scene reportedly smelled
alcohol on Shank's breath.
Shank then submitted to a
series of standardized field
sobriety tests, which estab-
lished probable cause.
Shank was transported to
Okaloosa County jail, and:
given two separate blood-al-
cohol tests. One test regis-
tered 0.087 percent, the other
0.08 percent. Both tests were
administered within minutes
of each other.
Under Florida law, a result
of 0.08 is statutorily prima
facie evidence of impairment.
Following his arrest on a

charge of DUI, Shank sub-
mitted his resignation from
FHP, effective immediately.
FHP public information of-
ficer Lt. Steve Preston said
that the FHP is taking no
further steps in investigating


So we need to have a plan
that is structured yet con-
tinually reevaluated.
I can see Walton County
fire service growing tremen-
dously over the next five
years, and I think we will be
ready for it.
Herald: Will this new man-
agement/coordination have a
positive affect on residents'


the incident, but that the
DUI charge is still pending
in the Okaloosa County court
system.
Shank had served with the
Florida Highway Patrol for
23 years.

goals. We will look at ways to
reduce our ISO (Insurance
Services Office) rating, such
as, building a strong combi-

lower insurance rates, so

Dear


(insert name of your current wireless provider here)


It's not you, it's me: OK, it's you. Like the fact that you didn't give
me an automatic minute credit for dropped calls. I mean, it's
your network. And what about letting me change plans without
extending my contract? We had a good run and all, but I really
didn't appreciate you tying me down to such a commitment.
Shouldn't I be allowed to change my mind? And why didn't you
give me unlimited calls home from my cell phone? You know
how important my family is to me.

I just can't go on like this anymore. I've found another company
that understands my needs and treats me with respect. I mean,
once you find that, what's not to love?


Best of luck to ya,

just put out fires! On Mon-
day, April 25, volunteers from
the Liberty Fire Department
responded to a choking vic-
tim on Paradise Island.
A woman was choking and
almost unconscious when the
first responders, using train-

Heimlich maneuver and re-
stored her breathing. While
waiting for the paramedic
crew to arrive they adminis-

purchased under a FEMA

Those assisting in this life-
saving effort include Chief
Roger Roy, John Giolotti,
David and Heather Bartlett
and Ron Ward.
Trained volunteer fire-

but save the taxpayers
money as well. The funding
they receive from the county
is used to purchase equip-

NORTH WALTOLN'S RELAY FOR LIFE


By RON KELLEY
Despite dire weather predicuons, the 2005 Relay For Life
event in Walton County came off without a hitch.'Although
campsites began packing up earlier than usual on Saturday
morning, the rain stayed away until the football field at Wal-
ton High School was cleared and empty. The best part was, of
course, that the teams raised over $87,500 for the fight against
cancer.
As always, the event brought out residents from all over
north Walton County, many of them cancer survivors who came
together to take a united stand against the killer disease. The
event also, as always s, produced plenty of smiles and good times,
as hundreds of friends and neighbors chatted and enjoyed the
various contests and culinery offerings from each team.
At the end of the 18-hour event, the corporate team that had
raised the most money was the CHELCO Cancer Busters. The
community team that raised the most funds was the Mossy
Head Miracle Marchers, who also won the team spirit award.
The rookie avw ard went to Army Aviation Center Federal Credit
Union and the best food award went to Friends For Life.
Relay chairperson Becky Martin thanked the participants
and announced that this would be her last Relay. She and her
husband have just moved to Moultrie, GA., to be closer to
family members there. However, Walton Relay members are
already making plans for next year's event and lining up du-
ties.
As the saying goes, "Welcome, my friends, to the show that
never endss' 4

how to better inform the public dur-
ing emergency situations.

Code Enforcement personnel have been
busy earning professional certification.

WALTON COUNTY THIS MONTH


Training is the key to professional development. In today's business world, it's not enough to
learn how to do your job and do it the same way until you retire. With the advancement in tech-
nology job related skills change at a rapid rate, many professionals require re-certification.
Doctors, lawyers, CPA's, accountants, law enforcement officers and many other professionals
now require a certain number of CEU's (continuing education units) each year for an individual
to keep their license.
Many Walton County employees continue their education, not because they have to but because
they wish to be the best they can be and stay abreast of the latest development in their chosen
profession.
In this addition of "Walton County This Month" we will highlight just a few of the many
Walton County employees who strive "to be all they can be" and serve the citizens of Walton
County.
Several Walton County employees have received training at the National
Emergency Training Center in Emmitsburg, Maryland. Ed Baltzley, Emer-
-i agency Response Director and Christine Bell, Emergency Operations Center
Manager are both graduates of the Emergency Management Academy.
Several 9-1-1 dispatchers have also attended classes at the training center.
FEMA has on-line courses in addition to their courses on campus that Walton
County employees are taking advantage of.
.i 1The National Emergency Training Center is located in the former St. Joseph's
SCollege. Prior to its closing the college served as a 4-year liberal arts college
for women. Some of the buildings on campus date back to 1829. The campus
Cih r t ne I va ntiERal,, is home to the National Fallen Firefighter's Memorial.

Certification in this class is a step in
being certified as a "Certified Public

requiring all of their buyers to become
certified.
Glyndol Johnson, Purchasing Agent
and Donna Weekly, Senior Buyer will
be taking their final exam in the near
future.

Kira Coley,

held a workshop
S on "Public Re-
Scords Requests
: and the Sun-

County departments receive requests
daily for files.and records about county
business. Under state law every person
who has custody of a public record
must allow the record to be inspected
by any person desiring to do so, under
reasonable conditions. The workshop
helped staff understand how to fulfill
the request in a timely manner, how
fees are determined and what informa-
tion is exempt from public disclosure.

Mothers

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


It is fitting that Mother's Day was created by a loving
mother in West Virginia in appreciation of her own
mother.
Mother's Day arrives during a drastic time of change
in seasons. Just the other day I went to my mailbox,
and encountered baby birds singing in our blue bird
house. I am not so sure that they are actually bluebirds.
Mother's day always engenders feelings of deep ap-
preciation of the one who sacrificed so much giving birth
to us.
That sacrificial spirit only continues with each pass-
ing year. I remember the times that Mom gave up desert
in order that we kids (all six) could have his or her equal
shaggier.
It seems odd that the emphasis is upon flowers, or
some material item instead of heart items that have
engendered qualities within us that have driven us from
the throws of discouragement, fear and abandonment.
If mother is in our corner we are winners. Even when
we were spanked (horrors!!) we knew that she was cor-
recting our behavior, instead of punishing us.
A famous minister tells of his wilder years. It seems
that while he would party the night away, and arrive in
the wee hours of the morning, his mother was on her
face before God interceding for her son.
This posture of intercession was not made in some
obscure closet, with muffled tones. She laid in front of
the main entrance to her home. When her son finally
arrived, he heard her before he stepped upon the porch.
-.'-. made it even more difficult, he had to step over
her to get into the house. No wonder this preacher had
a ,, 1 .time being a sinner.
I ii long before this son became a son of God.
Let, mtre i .' you, my friend, if you have a mother, hus-
band or wife who is pr -:,ing for you- your time is com-
irJg, you bad might as well give your heart to Jesus right
now,
.....I life will not be easier if someone is praying' for
you. God 1li1. praying people. Because the Father lis-
tens to the cries of His intercessors.
Go to church with mom this Sunday. Buy her a great
lunch. Give her gifts (plural), and pick out the mushiest
card you can find (you know she saves every one).
The greatest gift that you can give your mother is for
her to have a good nights sleep because you gave your
life over to God.
I wonder how many times our mother gave us to God.
There are a few examples in scripture of mother's who
sacrificed for her childrenn.
God's maternal side is mother. Discover why mother's
love so passionately by loving her God. Happy Mother's
Day. Come worship with us at Freeport UMC this Sun-
day at 9:45 a.m.!

By Debora Campbell, MS
CHES WCHD
There are two major
sources of food in our diets-
plants and animals. A pri-
marily plant-based diet em-
phasizes vegetables, fruits,
whole grains and beans.
Foods from animal sources,
I including meat, fish, poultry,
eggs and dairy products do
not play a major role. This
means that most of each
meal should be made up of
plant foods, including:
*Vegetables and fruits
Grains, especially whole
grains (like whole wheat
bread and pasta, brown rice


and whole-grain cereal)
*Legumes (such as beans,
peas and lentils)
So, is a plant-based diet a
vegetarian diet? Not neces-
sarily.
A plant-based diet covers a
range of eating styles be-
tween the extremes of the
traditional meat-heavy
American diet and strict veg-
etarianism. Findings from
the American Institute of
Cancer Research expert re-
port indicates that diets high
in vegetables and fruits that
also include modest amounts
of meat are just as protective
against cancer as vegetarian
ones.


There is no doubt that the
foods we eat-influence our
risk for cancer and other diet-
related diseases. Choosing a
plant-based diet is an oppor-
tunity to do something good
for ourselves.
Vegetables, fruits and
other plant foods are potent
sources of antioxidant nutri-
ents (like vitamin C and E,
beta-carotene and other caro-
tenoids) that may protect our
cells from damage by cancer-
causing agents, halting the
earliest processes that lead to
cancer. And they contain
probably thousands of
phytochemicals that appear
to protect against cancer in
a variety of ways, such as

stunting the growth of can-
cer cells.
Eating an abundance of
vegetables, fruits and other
plant foods also protects
against heart disease, stroke,
diabetes, hypertension and
birth defects. Soluble fiber
from grains and legumes
may help lower blood choles-
terol. Antioxidants in plant
foods may help prevent cata-
racts, and carotenoids spe-
cifically appear to prevent
deterioration of the retina. A
plant-based diet can also con-
tribute significantly to reduc-
ing obesity, a risk factor for
cancer and other diseases.
Choosing a plant-based
diet will improve one's health
and may renew one's interest
in cooking and eating new
foods. Give it a try.

Mothers should be godly

By Dr. Robert M. Jaye

Take time to read Proverbs 31:10-31. You will see that
godliness should be a quality of a good mother, "Favor is
deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the
Lord, she be praised"-(verse 31).
Many people speak of motherhood as a qualification for
sainthood, but the fact is that many mothers are far from
that. In 1 Timothy 5: 11-13, Paul describes women who travel
from house to house spending their time in gossip and slan-
der. Probably many of these women were mothers, yet they
were not good women.
One of the saddest things written about a mother was
written concerning Ahaziah, king of Judah. "He also walked
in the ways of the house of Ahab: for his mother was his
counselor to do wickedly" (2 Chronicles 22:3).


PAGE 11-B
Good women come as a result of a relationship with the
Lord. "But a woman who feareth the Lord, she shall be
praised." The biblical writer use the word "Lord". It was
the name used to describe a covenant relationship. The only
way to become good is by a relationship with the Lord.
Godly mothers have had good influence. Augustine, the
great fourth century preacher and theologian, was influenced
by his mother Monica. He admitted that his mother's prin-
ciples and actions affected him. She prayed fervently for
Augustine's conversion.
Look again at the biblical portrait of a mother. A mother
can fulfill her true role only through the power of the Lord.
in her life. Do you resemble the mother in the biblical pic-
ture?

except for the second on the
way to their seventh win of
the season.
Paxton took a 2-1 lead in
the bottom of the first as Kirk
Sebastian and Austin Garrett
had run scoring singles to
give the Bobcats the early
lead. Paxton struggled the
rest of the night to hit the ball
as Carter held the Bobcats to
six hits while allowing only
one walk.
Walton retook the lead in
the third inning as a Matt
Carter single and a pair of
Bobcats errors allowed the
Braves to claim a 3-2 advan-
tage. Xavier Jackson went 3-
for-5 on the night and drove
in a run in the fourth inning
with a single. He also added',
a solo homer off of Bobcats re-
liever Jordy Currid in the
sixth inning to give Walton a
6-2 lead.
Walton had nine hits on
the night and drew three
walks to go along with four
Paxton errors. The Braves
end the regular season own-
ing wins over Paxton and
Freeport as well as a sweep
of South Walton. The Braves
split their two meetings with
Ponce de Leon on the year.

Wilson named National Award Winner


The United States Achieve-
ment Academy has an-
nounced that David Wilson
from DeFuniak Springs has
been named a United States
National Award Winner in
History & Government.
This award is a prestigious
honor very few students can
ever hope to attain. In fact,
the Academy recognizes


fewer than 10% of all Ameri-
can high school students.
Wilson, who attends Wal-
ton Middle, was nominated
for this national award by
Jodi Howell, a teacher at the
school. He will appear in the
United States Achievement
Academy Official Yearbook,
which is published nation-
ally. -


The Academy selects USAA
winners upon the exclusive
recommendation of teachers,
coaches, counselors, and
other qualified sponsors and
upon the Standards of Selec-
tion set forth by the Academy.
The criteria for selection are
a student's academic perfor-
mance, interest and aptitude,
leadership qualities, respon-

sibility, enthusiasm, motiva-
tion to learn and improve,
citizenship, attitude and co-
operative spirit, dependabil-
ity, and recommendation
from a teacher or director.

David Wilson is the son of
Melissa and Bill Rogers and
the late Brian Wilson of De-
Funiak Springs. Grandpar-
ents are Donna Goldsmith of
DeFuniak Springs and Joan
and Dave Wilson of Holly-
wood, MD.


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

SEEING RED? If you were at West DeFuniak Elementary April 29, you sure did! The
kindergarten students from Mrs. Burgess', Casey's, Ealum's and Timmon's classes celebrated
"Clifford Day" by wearing red. All the students made Clifford ears to wear that day and
they did Clifford related academic activities, i.e. Clifford bones were used for addition and
subtraction fun!
The students were thrilled when the Walton Middle School principal, Mr. Russell Hughes,
put on Clifford ears to read a Clifford story. Ms. Marie Watts from the Aidmore Animal
Clinic also visited to do a presentation on animal care.
The students concluded their day of fun by enjoying "red snacks" of watermelon and
punch.
A lot of learning happened on that day, said Carol Casey, kindergarten teacher.

The request came from
H.E. Prescott, district secre-
tary for the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation, in
correspondence dated April
19.
With funding of over $100
million per year, the SIS was
established in 2003 with the
goal of developing a transpor-
tation system made up of
strategic facilities and ser-
vices, encompassing all
modes of transportation, em-
phasizing smooth and effi-
cient transportation link-
ages, and providing a safe,
economical, integrated net-
work.
The state is now moving
forward with the implemen-
tation phase of the SIS.
In response to Prescott's
letter, the Okaloosa-Walton
Transportation Organization
(TPO) confirmed four previ-
ously set transportation pri-
orities, which will be in-


Walton County received
the deed to the ten acres of
state property north of the
Helen McCall Park on April
25. The Florida Department
of Environmental Protection
relinquished the property to
the county after months of
negotiation and efforts by the
Board of County Commis-
sioners to acquire the site.
DEP had initially valued
the land at $800,000, basing
Their appraisal on residential
property. In further discus-
sion, the price was reduced
to allow purchase of the prop-
erty by the county at
$135,000. Of the ten acres,
roughly three acres are wet-
lands that will be preserved.
The remaining seven acres
are intended for recreational
uses. In fact, the deed con-,
tains a perpetual restrictive
covenant that the property
will be used solely for public
recreational purposes.
The county plans to use the
property to expand Helen
McCall Park, a venue for
Little League and tee-ball,
youth football, soccer, and
other events. Use of this fa-
cility has been hampered in
the past by inadequate park-
ing and infrastructure. The
additional space will allow
the county to address these
shortfalls to provide a better
recreational facility.
Many uses have been sug-
gested as the county sought


eluded on the SIS cost fea-
sible plan.
Those priorities include:
*The six laning of U.S. 98
from Danny Wuerffel Way in
Okaloosa County to the be-
ginning of the six-lane sec-
tion in the Sandestin area;
The four laning of U.S.
331 from the north end of the
Choctawhatchee Bay Bridge
to the beginning of the
Freeport bypass south of SR-
20;
*The four laning of SR-123
from SR-85 South to SR-85
North; and
*A new four-lane
Choctawhatchee Bay Bridge
on U.S. 331.
A TPO resolution confirm-
ing the four priorities in-
cluded a request that the
U.S. 98 segment in the first
item be extended west to Air-
port Road in Destin.
In other recent TPO busi-
ness, two Walton Countians
were approved as voting
members of TPO advisory
committees.

the county's Parks and Rec-

developing a proposal to

Moll Drive is the access to

Eastern Lake sand piles



draw an angry crowd


By TIANA LARSEN
When heavy equipment
and truckloads of sand ap-
peared a the Eastern Lake
outflow last Saturday, phone
calls and emails began flying
through the neighborhood
and a group of concerned
residents turned out to pro-
test the work taking place on
property owned by, Worth
and Dana Williams.
The Williams property is
a vacant 2.5 acre Gulf front
parcel on the eastern side of
the lake outflow, where San
Roy Road ends. The Williams'
also own the last house on
that side of the outflow, and
a county easement next to
the house was used to get the
trucks onto the beach, after
a portion of the dune was
taken down to allow access.
A "field permit" from the
Department of Environmen-
tal Protection (DEP) was is-
sued to Frederique Perret,
who calls herself "The Dune
Doctor," although it appar-
ently was not posted on the
site on Saturday.
Perret signed the permit
application as agent for
Worth Williams. The permit
expired Saturday, April 30,
due to the start of turtle nest-
ing season on May 1.
Many truckloads of sand
were dumped on the lot, but
according to Tommy Silva,


ATTORNEY GENERAL CHARLIE CRIST, center, paid a
visit to the Walton County Chamber of Commerce office in
the South Walton Government and Education Center on April
29. Crist was in town at the invitation of the Chamber and
the Walton County Taxpayer's Association, who thanked him
for being instrumental in lowering Sprint telephone bills in
the county by eliminating some of the long-standing 20-cent
calls between north and south Walton. Crist is speaking with
Dale Jewell of the Taxpayers Association and a representa-
tive of Chamber member Sun Quest Cruises.


the contractor hired to bring
in the sand, the job could not
be finished due to the storm
that moved in that day.
According to Dana Will-
iams, the intention of the
project is to create an envi-
ronment for turtles and to
recreate what was on the
property before Hurricane
Ivan. Williams also said that
the vacant lot did not get any
sand scraped up in front of it
when the county did the re-
cent beach scraping.
Williams stressed that the
project is "environmental"
and said there are no plans
to build on the lot. She re-
ferred questions about the
specific plans to Perret.
Perret told the Beach
Breeze that the dunes that
were established on the prop-
erty disappeared during
Ivan, and that the Williams'
wanted to restore protection
and asked her for a design.
The idea, she said, was to
restore some elevation and
bring in some vegetation.
Her part of the project was
to make recommendations
for placement and supervise
the planting, she said.
Neighbors have a different
take on the situation. "There
have never been any dunes
on that lot," said Earl Day, a
50-year resident of Eastern
Lake and a member of the


Coastal Dune Lake Advisory
Board. A written "fact sheet"
faxed to the Beach Breeze by
Daia Williams seems to con-
tradict the memories of Day
and other longtime lake resi-
dents.
"The Williams' recognize
through 'conversations with
long time residents and re-
searching photo files what
the property used to look like
in the past. It is their desire
to bring the dunes unique to
the coastal environment and
gorgeous native vegetation
back to the property," said
the Williams fax.
In his lifetime, Day says he
has seen the outlet meander
at least 250 feet in both di-
rections, east and west. "I've
seen it real close to the Will-
iams house," he said, and re-
called that prior applications
to build on the vacant lot
raised concerns by the county
about the required 50-foot
setback from the outlet.
"The county did right by
not scraping up in front of the
lot," Day thinks, who be-
lieves that what was placed
there on Saturday should not
be there. "It will impede the
water coming in and out of
the lake," he said.
Right now the outlet is far
to the west, but Day says it
used to open up much closer
to the dune next to the Worth


house.
.. Alan Powdermaker. also an
Eastern Lake resident,
agrees with Day. "They (the
Will ia ms') bought it knowing
the outflow was on their
property," he said. (The Wal-
ton County. Property
Appraiser's records indicate
the Williams' purchased the
property in 2003 for $1.7 mil-
lion.)
A plan provided to the,,
Beach Breeze shows much of;
the Worth lot covered in:-
dunes ranging from three to""
eight feet in height..:;
Powdermaker thinks if this:-.-
plan is carried out that`.i
people will not be able to use
the existing county ease-
ments to access the beach. "It
looks like they are building
a dam," he said.
"It is not ecological. It is
designed to keep people off
the beach, and in so doing it
will push the outflow to the
west and restrict it from mov-
ing back to the east," he
thought. Powdermaker also
is worried that the next ma-
jor storm will wash the sand
into the lake, potentially
blocking the outflow and
flooding lakefront properties.
Both Powdermaker and
Day are also worried about"
the ecology of the lake, which

Charlie Crist, state attor-
ney general, visited the south
Walton office of the Chamber
of Commerce, where he re-
ceived many thanks from
Chamber officials and mem-
ber of the Walton County
Taxpayer's Association.

Crist was instrumental in
removing many of the 20-
cent charges from local
Sprint bills, ajob citizens had
been trying to accomplish for
many years. Rob Neale,
Chamber president, said that
the Chamber expects to.save
over f1000 this year as a re-
sult of the lower phone bills.
"It is an honor to have you
here," said Bonnie
McQuiston, speaking for the


Walton County Taxpayers
Association, which worked
closely with Crist's office in
the successful effort to elimi-
nate the toll charges.
A few exchanges still must
pay the 20-cents for certain
calls, but Chamber executive
director Pam Tedesco told
community members who
came to meet with Crist that
an effort is ongoing to include
the rest of the calling area.
"All I'm doing is my job,"
remarked Crist, who then
turned his attention to a bill,
being called "the murder
bill," that is currently under
consideration in the state leg-
islature. (For more informa-
tion on this bill, see.,elated
story in the DeFuniak Her-
ald.)


Crist said it was a privilege
to serve, and remarked that
election day was a humbling
experience. "I have a duty
and an obligation to not let
you down," he said. "At some
time during the day I know
I'm going to get some justice,"
Crist said of his job.
After s short talk, Crist cir-
culated around the room,
talking with individuals on a
variety of local concerns, in-
cluding charter county orga-
nization, the state ethics
commission, model ethics
codes that have been enacted
in other locations in Florida,
citizen referendums, non-
partisan elections and other
issues of interest to the local
community.

Bob Mitchell of Inlet Beach
Water and Sewer System re-
ported that the utility is on
track with the timeline that
had been set for installation
of sewer in Walton County's
easternmost coastal commu-
nity.
Mitchell's report was pre-
sented at the April 26 Wal-
ton County Board of County


THE BIKE PATH bridge at Draper Lake will soon become even more scenic with the
addition of a cedar shingle roof, to be funded by the Draper Lake Homeowners Association.


tern
Mitchell said Hurricane
Ivan had presented a 90-day
delay but that the utility is
still on course to have sewer
in place on the south side by
May 8.
A contract has been let,
Mitchell continued, for sewer
installation on the north side,
and clearing of vegetation
has begun in that area, with
care being taken to conserve
protected vegetation.
The community has long
been divided along pro- and
anti-growth factions, but
Mitchell said the utility has
been managing lately to sat-
isfy people of both positions.
Mitchell was pleased to re-
port that developer impact,
fees are funding the sewer
installations. He saw this as
appropriate since 87 percent
of the utility's some 400
members had voted against
sewer being provided in the
community.
"They're not going to have
to pay for it," he explained.
Mitchell said local devel-
oper Randy Gardner had
been "the cornerstone of our
financing."
Sewer service was unavail-
able in the Inlet Beach until
recent years. The current
sewer installations are tak-
ing place in accordance with
an Aug. 2004 settlement
agreement between Walton
County and Inlet Beach Wa-
ter and Sewer, and through
the assistance of Regional
Utilities, Inc. (RUI.), water
and sewer provider for the
bulk of Walton County south
of the Bay.
RUI is providing treatment
for the Inlet Beach sewer sys-
tem effluent. "We have a
very major delay,' -Mitchdll
continued, explaining that,
although Inlet Beach Water
System now has a sewer lift
station in place on the south
side of U.S. 98, no three-
phase power is available to
put it into operation.
Gulf Power is experiencing
a delay in obtaining a permit
for the three-phase power,
Mitchell said.
Mitchell concluded that
Inlet Beach Water and Sewer
is "working in good faith," to
comply with the timeline set
in the agreement with the
county.
"I applaud your efforts,"
District 1 Commissioner
Scott Brannon responded to
Mitchell's presentation.


By DOTTY NIST
A gabled cedar shingle roof
will be constructed atop the
bike path bridge at Draper
Lake.
The Walton County Board
of Courity Commissioners
(BCC) approved the roof pro-
posal on April 26 on the con-
dition that design, engineer-
ing, installation, and mainte-
nance of the roof is to be
funded by the homeowners


association of Draper Lake,
a new subdivision on CR-
30A.
The CR-30A bike path, in-
cluding a number of bridges,
was constructed by Walton
County and is maintained by
the county.
The Draper Lake
Homeowners Association re-
quested approval to con-
struct and maintain the


shingle roof for the stated
reason of improving "the
class, character and appear-
ance of the right-of-way ad-
jacent to Draper Lake."
A right-of-way agreement,
stating that the county will
not at any time be respon-
sible for costs associated with
the roof, will be attached to
the county's approval of the
proposal.


Walton County creating new

training coordinator position


By DOTTYNIST --
Walton County intends to
hire its first county employee
training coordinator this
year.
The move was initiated by
a request from Walton
County Human Resources
Director' Garv'TMattison at
the.Aprd 26 Wahon County
Boatrd'tf 'County"C'dmtmis-
sioners (BCC) meeting.
Mattison said the recent
county workshop on em-
ployee retention had empha-
sized the need for a training
coordinator. He envisioned
the training coordinator fo--
cusing on socialization train-
ing and "training in general"
on an ongoing basis.
Mattison called job satis-
faction the "key to employee
retention," and stressed the
need for "a total training
package." He observed that
retaining employees is "a
national problem and cer-
tainly a local one.','

Brannon speaks to citizens


By TIANA LARSEN
"There are many huge is-
sues going on in the county
right now, and we have taken
some steps in the right direc-
tion," began Commissioner
Scott Brannon, who spoke to
the April 29 meeting of the
South Walton Community
Council (SWCC.)

These include, he contin-
ued, moving the jail out of
downtown DeFuniak
Springs, which will provide
more room for the courthouse
expansion, the formation of
the Walton County Coalition,
and anticipated workforce
housing in the planning
stages for a large parcel of
land on J. W. Hollington
Road.
Brannon credited Commis-
sioner Larry Jones with be-
ginning what has been ex-
panded into the coalition. A
couple of years ago, Brannon
explained, Jones began going
around and talking to offi-
cials from the schools and the
cities within the county.
The coalition has had two
meetings now, with the goal
of improving communication
between the various govern-
ment entities within the
county. This is very impor-
tant for future planning,
Brannon noted.
He also would like to have
a workshop to consider a 10-
year plan to assess needs for
facilities. The county is be-
hind in its capital projects,
Brannon said, since virtually
no new facilities were built in
the 1990s. A plan would al-


low for moving forward on a
yearly basis, he thought.

Then Brannon turned to
growth management, the
topic that seemed to be of
most interest to the audience.
"It is our biggest challenge,"
he said. Brannon is looking
to Pat Blackshear, the
county's new planning and
development director, to help
get the county moving in the
right direction.
He expects Blackshear to
propose changes to the cur-
rent code, which he called
"our worst enemy," after she
has time to assess the situa-
tion. Brannon wants the
vagueness taken out of the
growth management rules,
which he said make enforce-
ment difficult.
Brannon said he supports
the proposed ordinance re-
garding the infill land use
category. The change being
considered (instead of 'up to
eight units per acre' the pro-
posal would allow infill den-
sity to be set at from one to
eight units, on an individual
site basis) would give the
county more flexibility, he
thought.
Brannon also expressed
concerns about current flood-
plain issues. "We need to look
at filling in the floodplain.
There are tremendous
amounts of dirt being
brought in, causing runoff
and intrusion into the water-
ways." He wants clear lan-
guage about building on pil-
ings in .the floodplain, he


Operations manager resigns

ues to plague Walton County.
The latest to resign is Rob-
ert Fountain, who began as
the operations manager on

Barry had approached the

Williams explained that
the position was almost like

said.
Later in the meeting, dur-
ing the questions and com-
ments, Anita Page, SWCC
executive director, said that
she agreed with building on
pilings, but pointed out that
the Board of County Com-
missioners will soon be hear-
ing an ordinance that will
remove the floodplain pilings
provision from the land de-
velopment code.'
Also, she remarked, in the
last 24 months, Walton
County has filed 18 applica-
tions for filling with FEMA.
A developer who wants to fill
must first get a letter of ap-
proval from the county, she
explained. This is called a
community acknowledge-
ment form, and is supposed
to be supported by data and
analysis.
SWCC is concerned, Page
continued, that the county
keeps sending in the forms
without having the data and
analysis to determine what
effects the filling has on the
immediate adjacent proper-
ties and on the floodplain as
a whole.
Brannon responded that he
"could not agree more," and
said enforcement and clarity
must be looked at. "It is long
overdue," he said.
Comments and questions
from citizens in attendance


DISTRICT 1 COMMIS-
SIONER Scott Brannon was
the featured speaker at a re-
cent South Walton Commu-
nity Council meeting.
Brannon won the seat away
from Lane Rees in last
November's election. A former
Freeport City Councilman, at
age 24 Brannon is the young-
est commissioner in the
county's history.


reflected concerns over sep-
tic tanks, roads, increasing
density without the neces-
sary infrastructure, growth
north of the bay, community
rights, compatibility, enforce-
ment of code violations, and
the high turnover of county
employees.
"If we had rules and fol-
lowed them, things would be
better," was a typical com-
ment.
"There is definitely room
for improvement," Brannon
concluded.

Elevation certificates


Walton County


requiring more


documentation


Walton County is now re-
quiring contractors to submit
three elevation certificates
for all new construction in
zones that are considered to
be at greatest risk for flood
damage: an initial certificate
with proposed elevations, a
second certificate when the
foundation is complete, and
a final, "as built" certificate
before anyone will be allowed
to use the building.
Elevation certificates are
required by the National
Flood Insurance Program
(NFIP) for all new construc-
tion or substantial improve-
ments to existing buildings.
The NFIP requires that the
entire structure (including
all ductwork, utilities, and
wiring) be elevated at least
one foot above the elevation
that the Federal Emergency
Management Agency
(FEMA) considers to be the
maximum level of an antici-
pated flood.
Elevation certificates allow
local officials to monitor and
enforce this requirement.
Structures in "special flood
hazard areas", those areas
that are considered to be
most at risk of flood damage,
have additional require-
ments, including the require-
ment that the contractor pro-
vide the proposed elevations
of all of the structures asso-


ciated with any new con-
struction before construction
begins. A second certificate
must be provided once the
foundation is complete. This
allows the contractor to make
any necessary adjustments
before they begin vertical
construction and changes
would become prohibitively
expensive.
Walton County has not
been requiring an initial el-
evation certificate in special
flood hazard areas. Because
of this omission, the commu-
nity risks losing coverage
under the National Flood In-
surance Program, causing
the rates paid by local home
and business owners to in-
crease dramatically. By initi-
ating this requirement,
county officials claim they
are protecting citizen's cov-
erage under the NFIP.
Special flood hazard areas
are those designated as V,
VE, A, or AE zones on flood
insurance maps. FEMA con-
siders these areas at special
risk of flood damage because
of their past history of flood-
ing.
Anyone needing additional
information may contact
Billy Bearden, chief building
official, or Pat Blackshear,
director of the division of
planning and development,
at 267-1955.


NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

Board of County Commissioners of Walton County, Florida
to Consider Ordinance for the Establishment of the
NatureWalk Community Development District


May 24, 2005
8:00 a.m. (CST)
South Walton Courthouse Annex
31 Coastal Centre Blvd.
Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459


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,395
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
land adequate opportunity to appear and
present oral and written comments
regarding the establishment of the .ua t
District. If adopted, the ordinance will Seagrove
establish the NatureWalk Community .
Development District, name its initial 3
Board of Supervisors and designate the
land to be serviced by the District. Gulf of M exic
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. 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.

Emerald Coast Lutheran Church on a faith journey


Reverend Paul Johnson
and his wife, Cheryl, have
seen many changes in the
seven years they have min-
istered to the congregation of


- REV. PAUL JOHNSON
REV. PAUL JOHNSON


Emerald Coast Lutheran
Church in Santa Rosa
Beach.
From a mission church on
the Bay, to a storefront in
Cano Square, to a mobile
home church on Hwy. 98,
they have stood fast in their
commitment to bring an
ELCA Lutheran church to
the area. It appears their
faith journey was well trod as
plans are soon to be finalized
for a permanent church
building on the present site.
Cheryl and Paul met at a
mutual friend's wedding in
Minneapolis, Minn. Cheryl's
career was in women's retail,
and Paul worked in the pri-
vate sector following service
in Vietnam with the U.S.


Army.
They have been married 33
years and. are parents of a
son, Joel, and daughter,
Heather, who recently mar-
ried. The children live in
Cleveland, OH.
After a downsizing in his
company, Paul fulfilled a life-
long dream and graduated
from the seminary in 1990.
His first calling was in
Erie, PA, and then Topeka,
KS, where he merged two
churches. In 1998, he and
Cheryl accepted the call to
Santa Rosa Beach.
Cheryl leads the women's
group, Sarah Circle, which
meets the first Tuesday of
each month. Through their
various project fundraisers


such as a Chili dinner in
January, the Women's Sun-
day in February, and the sale
of coupon books, Sarah Circle
has donated over $3,000 to
needy people in the commu-
nity and the 'Childrens' Ad-
vocacy Center and Harvest
House.
Emerald Coast Lutheran
Church is located just four
miles east of Sandestin on
Highway 98, across from Don
Pedro's. Services with Holy
Communion are held on Sun-
days at 10 a.m. A nursery
and Sunday School for
grades K-6 is provided.
Everyone is invited to wor-
ship service and fellowship.
Pastor Paul may be reached
at 267-3454.


New incentives to recruit more teachers


"Copyrighted Material


Syndicated Content


Available from Commercial News Providers"


Recent college graduates in
Florida who want to become
teachers but did not earn
o degrees in education can
* now pursue their teaching
9-- dreams through "Passport to
Teaching," an innovative cer-
tification process offered by
the American Board for Cer-
tification of Teacher Excel-
lence (www.abcte.org).


In recognition of college
graduation season and na-


tional Teacher Appreciation
Week, the American Board
will cut the "Passport to
Teaching" application fee for
recent graduates by $100
throughout the month of
May. The incentive is de-
signed to encourage teach-
ing-minded individuals with
bachelor's degrees to achieve
their goals. No additional col-
lege courses are required
unless the certification can-
didate chooses to participate


in them for preparation pur-
poses.

"America will need 2.4 mil-
lion new teachers over the
next 10 years," said Ameri-
can Board President Dr.
Kathleen Madigan. "If you
have the skills, the intellib
gence, and the passion to
teach there is a classroom
right now that needs you."
-Currently, Passport to
Teaching certification is


available in the areas of el-
ementary education, En-
glish, mathematics, general
science and biology. Passport
to Teaching is'recognized by
the U.S. Department of Edu-
cation and accepted by sev-
eral U.S. states as a route to
full teacher certification.

_ Senate passes legislation promoting


purchase of long term insurance


S -* Legislation sponsored by
Senator Durell Peaden (R-
Crestview), which seeks to
encourage Floridians to pur-
chase long-term care insur-
ance, unanimously passed
the Florida Senate.
Committee Substitute for
Senate Bill 1208 requires the
,* Agency for Health Care Ad-
ministration (AHCA) to cre-
* ate the Florida Long-term
Care Partnership Program to
provide incentives for indi-
viduals to purchase long-
term care insurance. The bill
requires AHCA to develop a
plan for the implementation


of the program prior to the
2006 Legislative Session.

"Our elder citizens often
believe that Medicare pays
for the long-term care costs,
and that is a mistake that,
unfortunately, many don't
discover until it is too- late,"
explained Senator Peaden.
"Because of this mistake,
people are often forced to
spend down the majority of
their assets before gaining
eligibility for Medicaid long-
term services. By purchasing
long-term care insurance,
this predicament can be


avoided all together."
Floridians who participate
in the partnership will be
able to qualify for medicaid
coverage for the costs of long-
term care without having to
first substantially spend
down their assets. The count-
.ableamount of assets for.de-
termining Medicaid eligibil-
ity would be reduced by $1 for
each $1 of benefits paid by
an individual's long term
care partnership program
policy.
"Medicals is the primary
payer of long-term care ser-


vices,. and this is placing a
great financial burden on the
Medicaid system throughout
the country. Many people
don't buy long-term care in-
surance because of the cost.
By creating this partnership
and giving 'financial inren-
tives 'to'people 'to b'u, i-
very beneficial insurance
policies, we hope to' help Flo-
ridians better prepare for
their futures and, at the
same time, relieve some of
this financial burden on
Florida's Medicaid program,"
concluded Senator Peaden.


- NRCS announces new-scale farm initiative


State Conservationist,
Niles T. Glasgow, announced
a new small-scale farm initia-
* tive to help farmers overcome
barriers they face in reaching
their conservation goals.
The NRCS established this
new initiative to help farm-
ers to co-exist side-by-side
with larger agricultural op-
S W rations. It will enhance the
viability and economic liveli-
hood of Floridas' estimated
-- 23,000 small farmers and
W ranchers.
This initiative is critical to


the quality of life of small
farmers and ranchers in sus-
taining their operations and
will be available in twelve
states throughout the south-
east including: Alabama, Ar-
kansas, Florida, Georgia,
Kentucky, Louisiana, Missis-
sippi, North Carolina, South
Carolina, Tennessee, Vir-
ginia, West Virginia and the
Caribbean area.

The 2002. Farm Bill recog-
nizes, supports and promotes
the unique interest of small


farmers and ranchers not to
participate in Farm Bill pro-
grams or prohibited them
from ranking high enough to
be enrolled in a program.

The sign-up period for the
Small-Scale Farm/Limited
Resource Producer Initiative
in Florida is May 2 20, 2005.
Priority issues being ad-
dressed are fencing require-
ments, irrigation of small
acreages, and -improvement
of soil health through use of
specific practices. The cost


share rate is 75 percent from
NRCS with 25 percent due
from the producer (unless the
applicant qualifies as a Lim-
ited Resource Producer which
is 90 percent from NRCS with
10 percent due from the pro-
ducer). To assist this initia-
tive in reaching their objec-
tives both acreage and Ad-
justed Gross Income (AGI)
caps are set for Florida. The
acreage cap is less than 179
acres and the AGI cap is set
at a range from $1,000 -
$70,000.

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!

Day said that already the
lake has been filling up with
sand. He recalled that it used
to be 12 to 15 feet deep, and
now is about half that in
depth.

Day, that dunes never were
on the property, because if
any began to grow, they
would wash away when the
outfall moved to the east.
The project description on
the DEP permit calls for "300
feet of sand fence in 10-foot
sections south of the prop-


erty, 300 feet of 2x4 with rope
to delineate pathway, 500
cubic yards of sand to initiate
dunes, and native vegetation
over bare sand to build the
dunes up."

This appears to differ
somewhat from the plan pro-
vided to the Beach Breeze,
which shows five and six foot
dunes on the western bound-
ary, nearest the outfall, more
dunes covering much of the
site, along with sand fencing
in between the dunes and a
post and rope fence on the
northern and western bound-

Douglas E. Barr, executive di-

District. "We are also leading
the way with one of the first
public purchases at the west-

Greenway." The Greenway
initiative, a public/private
nonprofit effort, envisions a
continuous natural ecosys-
tem across the Panhandle
that will prevent encroach-
ment on military operations,

The District pursued the
purchase because it was re-
quired to mitigate for adverse
wetland impacts of the pro-
posed U.S. 331 realignment,
which passes within a mile of
the property. The seller, M.
C. Davis, was willing to offer
his property for water re-

vation. About 490 acres will
be acquired with Florida De-
partment of Transportation
mitigation funds, and will be
restored and preserved in
perpetuity by implementing
long-term natural resource
management.

The public also gains pro-
tection of several rare
steepheads, Northwest
Florida's constantly flowing
cove valleys. These steep
coves have migrated miles
from the valleys of Lafayette
and Econfina creeks, and the
Apalachicola River, into an-
cient shorelines that stretch
from Eglin Air Force Base to
Lake Talquin.

Beach driving and

dog permits to be

issued by Tax Collector


"The Walton County Board
of County Commissioners ap-
proved a transfer of respon-
sibility for issuance of beach
driving and dog beach per-
mits in their meeting held on
April 26. Permits for driving
on the beach, and for Walton
County property owners to
take their dogs on the beach
have been issued by the
Clerk of Court's office since
they were implemented.
Effective June 1, this re-
sponsibility will be assumed
by the Walton County Tax
Collector. Both the main of-
fice in the DeFuniak Springs
Courthouse Annex and the
branch office in the South
Walton Courthouse Annex
will be able to process these
permits.
Staff has been trained, and
software developed by the


Clerk's Management Infor-
mation Systems Department
to facilitate a smooth transi-
tion of this function.
Information pertaining to
the permits has been added
to the Tax Collector's website
at www.waltontaxcollector-
.com.
The web site includes
downloadable applications
for both permits to decrease
the wait time in the offices.
Efforts are also underway
with credit and debit card
process vendors to explore
the feasibility of offering
online renewal of these per-
mits in the future with pay-
ment by credit/debit card.

tact Pam Rayburn or Cory

County Tax Collector's Office,

Beach and


Mosquito control update dune recovery


With the onset of warmer
weather and the heavy
amount of rainfall we have
experienced over the last few
months, it is predicted we
will have a particularly high
mosquito rate this summer.
North Walton County Mos-
quito Control started their
evening spraying in early
April.
They do not have a set
schedule, but spray Monday
through Friday from 6:30
p.m. until midnight weather
permitting. North Walton is
divided into zones and each
zone is sprayed *every seven
to eight days. '
Walton County's mosquito
prevention measures include
surveillance traps through-
out north Walton to monitor
the number of mosquitoes in
an area. They will also re-
i spond ,to service requests
from residents.


It is important to take per-
sonal precautions such as:
*Dusk and Dawn (avoid
being outdoors when mosqui-
toes are seeking blood, for
many species this is during
the dusk and dawn hours).
*Dress (wear light colored
clothing that covers skin).
*DEET (use mosquito re-
pellents according to label in-
cluding DEET on skin when
you are outside).
*Drainage (Check your
home to rid it of standing
water in which mosquitoes
can lay their eggs). Clean
gutters and remove debris
from your yard.

Manager at 892-8183. In

rector qary D'Andrea at 267-

According to Brad Pickle,
the first scientist hired by
Walton County's Tourist De-
velopment Council, Walton
County is doing a great job
with its Beach and Dune Res-
toration program.
After Hurricane Ivan, 50 of
Walton County's 56 walk-
overs were damaged and
needed repair. Pickle antici-
pates that all of the walk-
overs will be open by May 1.
"In addition to losing our
walk-overs, 25 of the 29 flag
poles that support the Safety
Warning System flags were
destroyed. Walton County
beaches lost about 1.7 million
cubic yards of sand. It would
cost the county about $30 per
cubic yard to buy sand to re-
place the loss, if we could fine
the same color, texture, etc.,"
said Joyce Szilvasy, spokes-
person for the Rotary club of
DeFuniak Springs.


The TDC was one of the few
organizations that obtained
permission to perform limited
sand scrapping on its
beaches. The scraping was,
performed from mid October
2004 to April of this year and
has helped replace much of
the lost beach sand.
"Pickle estimates that we
have 1 to 2 miles of beach that
now need sand. An addi-
tional beach project will be to
plant sea oats," Szilvasy said.
When questioned about the
impact of Ivan on county
tourism, Pickle responded
that the TDC expects to re-
ceive visitors who normally
vacation from Pensacola to
Gulf Shores because of the
devastation in that area.
Pickle informed local
Rotarians that the council is
funded by grants and tourism
taxes.


By DOTTY NIST
A south-of-the-bay station
with 911, computer-aided
dispatch and radio system
capabilities appears to be on
the horizon for the South
Walton Fire District (SWFD.)
Charged with responding
to fire and emergency medi-
cal calls south of the Bay,
which amount to about half
the county's emergency call
volume, the SWFD opted to
provide its own dispatch per-
sonnel in fall 2005. Cur-
rently, that seven-member
staff operates out of the Wal-
ton County Emergency Op-
erations Center (EOC,)
alongside Walton County's
emergency dispatchers.
Due to problems with
transferring calls within the
EOC, the SWFD dispatch
staff has not been able to take
over as much of the call load
as had been hoped in the
busy dispatch center. Trans-
ferring calls outside the EOC,
as is required for law enforce-
ment dispatch, by contrast,
,does not pose a problem.
In March, the SWFD fire
commissioners voted to seek
a remedy for the call trans-
fer difficulty and to pursue a
separate communications fa-
cility south of the Bay.
There, according to plans,
south-of-the-Bay emergency
calls would ring directly,
eliminating the need to
transfer any calls other than
those for law enforcement
dispatch in south Walton
County. The fire commission-
ers recognized the inherent
advantage of having two 911
facilities in place in the
county in the event of prob-
lems at either. An emphasis
on teamwork between the
two dispatch teams was and
remains part of the plan.
SWFD staff members have
compared possible locations
for a temporary south-of-the-
Bay communications center.


Their recommendation is for
the SWFD-owned parcel
near the southwest corner of
U.S. 98 and CR-393, the
former SWFD headquarters
and community center. The
county road department cur-
rently leases a portion of the
same parcel.
On May 2, the SWFD fire
commissioners voted to make
available a maximum of
$30,000 for the renovation of
a portion of the headquar-
ters/community center build-
ing on that property for use.
as a temporary dispatch cen-
ter.
According to SWFD Chief
Les Hallman, discussion
with Walton County Emer-
gency Response on the south-
of-the-Bay communications
facility, including those deal-
ing with financial arrange-
ments, have been "very favor-
able."
The fire district has set
Oct. 1 as the target date for
having the temporary SWFD
facility operational on CR-
393.
In the meantime, evalua-
tions are under way on a per-
manent SWFD dispatch fa-
cility location. The fire
district's preference is the 10-
plus-acre CR-393 North
property where the current
fire district headquarters is
located. Unfortunately a por-
tion of the property contains
wetlands.
At the May 2 meeting, the
fire commissioners voted to
spend up to $2,000 for an
environmental analysis -of
the property to delineate wet-
lands and determine
whether constructing a dis-
patch center on the CR393
property would be a "doable"
option.
The fire district intends to
have a permanent location in
place for the facility within
18 months of setting up the
temporary dispatch station.
