Devil's Swamp restored




Devil's Swamp restored.


The Northwest Florida
Water Management District
recently removed a dozen
road segments to restore
stream flows in Devil's
Swamp. It also installed nine
low-water crossings and a
bridge.
Funds to purchase and re-
store the 2,649-acre swamp
were provided to the District
by the Florida Department of
Transportation (DOT) as
mitigation for wetland im-
pacts resulting from widen-
ing U.S. Highway 98 in
southern Walton County.
Segments of old logging roads
that had blocked streams
were removed, and the re-
stored streambeds were lined
with crushed rock so that ve-
hicles-could drive through at
low water.
"The coarse rock keeps
truck tires from churning up
dirt and sending it into the
river where it can degrade
water quality and harm
aquatic habitat," said Lee
Marchman, the District's
chief of Surface Water Man-
agement. "The gravel also
provides good, safe stream
crossings for vehicles."
The swamp drains into the
lower Choctawhatchee River,
which is one of the six prior-
ity watersheds on the
District's list for surface wa-
ter improvement and man-
agement. As part of the
project, a new bridge was also
built on Bunker Road to im-
prove surface water connec-
tions and flows.
In addition, thick under-
brush has been chopped and
burned, and several acres of
native cypress were re-
planted near the riverside
community of Bunker. The
area was burned again to
clear competing vegetation
and to ensure cypress growth.
Many more acres of disturbed
wet prairie and wet pine
flatwoods are slated for har-
vesting and burning to re-
store natural longleaf and
wiregrass habitat, as well.
The continued restoration,
enhancement and ecological
management of Devil's
Swamp is a long-term effort
that will preserve these valu-
able natural and water re-
sources in perpetuity," said
Duncan Cairns, chief of En-
vironmental and Resource
Planning at the District. "We
have focused on restoring
wetland communities by im-
proving surface water flows,


re-introducing more natural
fire regimes, and replanting
many areas with native veg-
etation."
Many deteriorated logging
roads have been improved to


enhance public access to this
area, popular with deer hunt-
ers and beekeepers. Hives
are being set out again and
bees fly along flowing
streams and swamp lands,


gathering nectar. In addition
to providing valuable wetland
mitigation, restoration of this
large area increases opportu-
nities for public use and en-
joyment.


Longtime Freeport mayor
and resident, Mickey Marse,
will officially seek re-election
in the upcoming city election,
July 2005. Mayor Marse has
served continually as mayor
for the past 14 years.
Marse's father, Buster
Marse, served as the city's
first mayor upon Freeport's
incorporation in 1963.
In a press release, Mayor
Marse said, "I am excited

At the Freeport City Coun-
cil meeting of May 10 Mayor
Mickey Marse said that he
had expected to get title to a
promised parcel of land tp be
used as a park by the City
from Freeport 860 LLC on
this day, but has not hap-
pened. Marse said that now
he did not know when this
transaction might be con-
cluded.
He went on to cite the need
for parks to provide playing
fields for the city's youth.
Jack Rhodes, consultant to
the developer, addressed the
council saying there was a
miscommunication about
when the property would be
conveyed. He said he had al-
ways understood the transac-
rm tion was to be completed by
his the end of May. Rhodes also
cited the effort the developer
has made to provide good
planning for the facility.
In other business, a memo
from City Planner Latilda
Henninger, who was not,
present, conceriiing a request
to the city by the Methodist
Church that they be granted
permission to destroy an old
building on church property
being used as a thrift store


and replace it with a new
metal structure. After a brief
discussion, the council ap-
proved the request.
City Engineer Charles Pe-
ters presented a summary
report on the status of vari-
ous city projects:
Peters said he learned
there is no requirement for
the North Bay Water System
to retain two of its old wells
as monitors. In view of this,
all of the old wells will be
closed.
Peters reported that a re-
quest for an easement across
U.S. Air Force-owned right-
of-way along SR- 20 for phase
two of the North Bay Water
project had been submitted
to officials at Eglin AFB. Pe-
ters expects the approval pro-
cess to take many months.
The city has made a
counter-proposal to the Trout
Creek subdivision proposal
to obtain water from the
North Bay Water System.
The city would consider ex-
tending the line but wants to
have a larger diameter pipe
that could serve more future
customers and it wants Trout
Creek to split the added cost

currently experiencing and
amidst the rapid growth and
change in the City of Free-
port, I have worked inces-
santly to improve the water
and sewer infrastructure to

community."
Marse also said, "I look for-
ward to serving the citizens
of the city of Freeport for four
more years."
The upcoming election is
scheduled for July 12.


Going the extra mile


By RON KELLEY
On Friday afternoon, Louis
Figueroa walked into DeFu-
niak Springs. He is used to
walking. Over the years, he's
walked across America twice.
The first time, when he -was
only 16, was to raise aware-
ness regarding cancer. The
second time, when he was 30,
was to raise awareness about
the AIDS crisis.
Now, at age 39, Louis
Figueroa tolad the DeFuniak
Herald and Beach Breeze
that his motivation this time
was to raise awareness re-
garding child abuse.
"This is probably going to
be my last trip. I'm getting
too old for this," he said.
Figueroa said he would be
staying at the Best Western
Motel near Interstate 10 and
was looking for a barber
shop. "I look pretty scary
right now."
Scary-looking or not,
Figueroa has gone the extra


mile and then some through-
out his life.
As a sixteen-year-old high
school student from New
Brunswick, New Jersey,
Figueroa set off to run to San
Francisco in order to inspire
a 10-year-old boy with cancer
who was growing despondent
about his life. Relying on do-
nations and charitable help,
Figueroa not only completed
his quest, he also raised
money for the American Can-
cer Society and became the
youngest and fastest person
to run across America, com-
pleting the trek in 60 days.

Fourteen years later, Louis
began his second trek across
America, this time to raise
awareness about AIDS. The
walk was done in honor of his
brother, Jimmy, who was di-
agnosed with the disease in
1994. Walking alone, with
only a backpack, Figueroa
traveled from Bangor, Maine,


to San Diego, and raised
money and awareness. That
trip was especially signifi-
cant because Louis did it
while in remission after be-
ing diagnosed with leukemia.
This last walk will be the
longest. Figueroa started in
Tucson, Arizona, on Jan. 29,
and plans on making a 10-
month, 7,500 mile loop
around America for what he
calls the "happiest cause of
all happy childhoods."
Figueroa said the court's
punishment for molesting
children is ridiculous. "In 34
states, probation is a punish-
ment for child molestation.
The punishment for drunk
driving is a lot worse than for
child molestation and I'm a
little "MADD" about that.

Figueroa plans to complete
all but the last mile of this
trip and allow volunteers to
finish in order to illustrate
how citizens must also do


their part to change the sys-
tem.
Figueroa is again relying
on the kindness of strangers,
including Kiwanis Clubs
across America, whose aim is
to help children.
Figueroa has been keeping
a journal, which is posted
online at http://
7500miles.blogspot.com/
2005.
Here is an excerpt from
Figueroa's journal describing
his trip through Mobile and
Pensacola.

"Nick and I were both bone-
marrow tired when we got to
Mobile, Alabama. In fact, we
were so tired that we couldn't
find the hotel. We walked
into the Lafayette Plaza Ho-
tel, thinking it was a Best
Western. Well, we were close;
as soon as they finish with
the renovations, it is going to

Rotary International turns 100


By TINA ROSENBERG
Next month Rotary Inter-
national turns 100. Rotary
clubs, a staple of small-town
life, are ,-t:l,:t.i i ,ig the con-
struction of innumerable
parks, the holding of myriad
blood drives, the awarding of
countless college scholar-
ships and the imminent glo-
bal eradication of polio.

Twenty years ago, there
were a thousand new cases
of polio every day. Now polio
strikes only about a thousand
children a year. By next year,
that number should be zero.
People who think of Rotary
as a congregation of service-
minded dentists and funeral
directors may not have no-
ticed, but the dentists and
funeral directors have cre-
ated the largest, most suc-
cessful private health initia-


tive ever.
When Rotary celebrated its
75th birthday, its leaders de-
cided to find a project that all
its clubs now in 168 coun-
tries could work on to-
gether. A Rotarian ophthal-
mologist in the Philippines,
where polio was rampant,
asked Rotary to vaccinate
Filipino children. It vacci-
nated six million, then made
similar efforts in five other
nations. In 1985, Rotary de-
cided to wipe out polio com-
pletely.

By the time polio is eradi-'
cated, Rotary clubs will have
directly contributed at least
$600 million, more than any
other organization except the
United States government.
And they offer more than
cash.

It was reported that ap-
proximately 6,000 feet of
pipe for the Bay Loop sewer
has been installed and that
the contractor is working
smoothly on the project.
, Peters asked the council
for guidance about the rate
structure 'to be used for ty-
"ingh to the Bay Loop sewer.
Factors that must be consid-
ered include the cost of
pumps to deliver sewage into
the collection system, the
need to close existing septic
tanks and the degree that
credits offered by the county
will be passed on. The coun-.
cil will review these issues
and provide answers at the
next scheduled meeting.
On another subject, Marse
asked for and received ap-

Big boots, too. "Every polio

Kano stopped vaccinating.
Kano's cases doubled, and
Nigerian strains of polio have
spread to 16 other nations
that had beaten the virus.
Coincidentally, the presi-
dent of Rotary International
that year, Jonathan
Majiyagbe, was from Kano.
He helped broker a compro-
mise: Kano would use vac-
cine made in Indonesia, a
Muslim country. In August
2004, Kano's governor pub-
licly vaccinated his infant
daughter.
Although the countries
Kano infected will have to
spend millions on emergency
vaccination campaigns, they
will probably be successful.
The real challenge is to elimi-
nate polio at its epicenter, Ni-
geria. If Kano does not bolt
again, this will probably hap-
pen in a year. "We would not
be here without Rotary Inter-
national," Dr. Salah said.
"Rotary is the heart and soul
of polio eradication."

reiterates

position
By BEN GRAFTON
Following the adjournment
of the Freeport City C6uncil
meeting consultant Jack
Rhode, I who represents,
Freeport 860 LLC, reiterated
his comments to the-Freeport
Council saying that there has
never been .a question about
the property being given to

He went on to emphasize
that before the transaction
could be completed, the deed
had to be properly prepared
and reviewed by legal coun-
sel. Rhodes said that he had
always understood that the
deed was to be delivered in
the month of May, not the
10th of May as alleged.


in education.
"We have awarded a $500
scholarship annually to a
Walton County graduating
senior for several years" said
Juanita Bass, president of
WCREA. "This year, we de-
cided to increase the amount
of the award at the same time
we will begin to invest in an

arship may continue in per-
petuity."
According to Carla Reinlie,
OWC Foundation Associate
Director, endowed scholar-
ships utilize only the inter-
est income from the endow-
ment to annually fund stu-
dent scholarships thereby


assuring the sponsoring
group that their scholarship
support will be available for
future generations of stu-
dents.

Janet Campbell, WCREA
Community Service Chair-
person, former OWC college
trustee and current OWC
Foundation Board member,
said the state matching pro-
gram "is quite an incentive to
start an endowed scholarship
fund. We are excited to be
creating a source of financial
aid that will allow students
who follow in our footsteps as
educators to attend OWC for
years to come."

Editor's Comment



One if by land, two if by sea


By RON KELLEY

Did you hear the good news? The Cuban family that twice
tried to reach Florida with vehicles converted into boats
has made it to Miami, this time coming overland through
Mexico from Costa Rica.
According to a story by Associated Press, Luis Grass, his
wife, Isora Hernandez, and their five-year-old son, Angel
Luis Grass Herrandez, entered the U.S. though the Texas-
Mexico border on March 12.
They were held in custody in Brownsville, Texas, and then
traveled to Miami after being released on parole for hu-
manitarian reasons. They will be allowed to apply for per-
manent residence in 2006.
Isn't that heartwarming? After being unable to enter the
country illegally by ocean voyage, they finally managed to
enter the country illegally by slipping across the U.S.-Mexico
border.
For those of you who didn't see the unusual pictures of
their "autQmoboats," the Grass family's voyage to America
began in 2003 when they tried to sail from Cuba aboard a
bright green 1951Chevy pickup, which Luis Grass had con-
verted into a boat. They were intercepted by the Coast Guard
and sent back to Cuba. The Coast Guard then sunk the
Chevy-boat.
In February 2004 Grass made a second attempt to get to
the United States illegally this time aboard a floating Buick
sedan automoboat.
Again, they were intercepted. This time the Grass family
was taken to the U.S. naval base in Guantanamo and the
other illegals were returned to Cuba. The Buick was sunk.
The U.S. held them at Guantanamo until a third country,
in this case Costa Rica, agreed to grant safe haven.
The family lived in Costa Rica until last month, making
their way into Mexico and then into Texas.
The family's attorney, Wilfredo Allen said Grass' "great-
est frustration was that he was stuck at sea and he was not
able to land in Miami and drive up onto the beach."
How touching.
Allen said the Grass family will "begin the process of le-
galization," and Luis will apply for a work permit.
All's well that ends well; just another great American
happy ending, right?
Right?



Editor,
I was looking at the world news today on the television
and they were talking about how President Bush wants to
close some of the military bases. This will put thousands of
. people out of work and more.on unemploymentt.
This is just w. hat we need, more people unable to find work.
"It will also hurt a lot of stores'and shops that'depend on
income from the soldiers who work and live on the military
bases.
If these bases are closed, a lot of towns and cities will pay
the price; loss of income 'or rental property and loss of tax
money.

Editor,
I am writing to express concerns about cell phone and linc
radio use during the Walton High School capping ceremony.
It is discouraging that some guests were not respectful
enough to turn off their phones or leave them in the car.
The constant interruptions made it difficult for family mem-
bers, teachers, and friends to enjoy the ceremony and I'm
sure the students were also discouraged by the lack of re-
spect. This is an important, time for the students involved,
so please use some cell phone etiquette for the graduation
ceremony or any event of this kind in the future.

Well, yes and no. There's that pesky little thing about
sneaking into the U.S. illegally.
Under U.S. immigration policy, Cubans who reach U.S.
shores generally are allowed to stay while those caught at
sea are usually returned. This is a policy?
As for the millions of illegals who sneak in that we don't
catch, well, we're just guessing at their numbers and who
they might be.
If seventeen foreign nationals are all it takes to crash three
planes into American buildings and kill thousands, then
how many illegals do we allow before we say, 'Stop' and what
loyal American in their right mind would try to legalize their
illegal entry after the fact?
I might be more inclined to overlook this huge and delib-
erate gap in America's security if it weren't for something
else that's even more contemptible.
In February, the Real ID Act (HR 418) passed the House
261-161. The vote fell largely along party lines, with 95
percent of Republicans (my own party) betraying a tradi-
tional pledge against excessive government control.-
In April, the Senate also passed the Real ID bill, creating
a back-door national ID card. Despite weeks of protests and
activism, the senators quietly voted for it 100-0 anyway.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman F. James
Sensenbrenner, Jr. (R-Wis.), the author of the REAL ID Act
(H.R. 418), issued ;the following statement following the
Senate passage of the supplemental appropriations confer-
ence report that included the REAL ID Act:
"The REAL ID is vital to preventing foreign terrorists from
hiding in plain sight while conducting their operations and
planning attacks. By targeting terrorist travel, the REAL
ID will assist in our War on Terror efforts to disrupt terror-
ist operations and help secure our borders.
Really?
"I am grateful for the White House's strong support of




Editor,
Last week's paper with the article about Quick'n Fit was
an eye-opener. At first, I was insulted about the following
"Helps the Slow and Out of Shape".
Quite true in every instance, but at. the same time, well,
true. Look around and you will see slow and out of shape.
I have been going to Quick'n Fit since they opened and
this 'slow and out of shape' can show proof that Quick'n Fit
really works.
Lost 10 pounds. Gone from size 16 to size 10. I have dis-
covered more curves than I ever really knew I had. I'm more
energetic and do the exercises and I am no longer out oCf
shape. So, aside from the "quote" I am sure aill'f.'h i' ..ere
interested in the article will join me and get fit and trim: ;
True, it's for women only, but too bad they don't have one
for men. See you around boys. How about it Ron?
The true concern we all should have is weight-loss, eat
right, exercise and it's amazing how much better we all would
feel.
So get with the program, any program that meets your
fancy and feel good.

Editor,
We live and we die, and in between we reproduce. Not so
much as in our own image, but our own cells are dying and
reproducing. We are experiencing the changes of all living
things. The creation is'continually changing, but the Cre-
ator, the universal intelligence, does not change.
Organizations continue to exist for the apparent good they
do. The organization ceases to exist when the good is brought
into judgment, the connection with the universal intelligence
is judged.-The good is, also. The idealism of the. limited will
of mankind continues to exist. The energy form is changed,
but the energy continues to exist.
Whatever powerlessness we may experience in projected
Social Security changes, the energy is not lost to the uni-,
versal intelligence. Neither is your limited energy to the
universal intelligence lost. The connector exists forever. The
connector is Spirit. Our spirit remains forever when we joy-
fully remain connected to Spirit.
The Social Security System exists. The National commit-
tee to preserve Social Security and Medicare is, as the name
implies, social security and medical care. The monies from
the investments of the Social Security Tax extend beyond
the elderly retired, to all citizens and temporary residents
to the social security and medical needs of the entire na-
tion. Obviously, there is favoritism shown to the world-wide
entities who receive the tax-collected monies. Otherwise,
they would not continue to succeed in our competitive world
society of commerce.
Granted, there are abuses in our Social Security System,
but it works. The threat to our social security and medical
care is that it has not been extended to the world. The con-
nected relationship to the universal intelligence has not been
opened.
It is unimaginable to determine the monies which were
received by international and national charitable organiza-
tions because of the tsunami disaster. Their coffers must be
full. They will have monies to invest in their money-mak-
ing entities for years, but because of continuing disasters,
charitable gifts will continue to be needed. Commerce is
commerce. The freely-given gifts they receive from chari-
table givers expecting no personal return is quite another
thing.
Commerce is commerce. Expecting an eventual monetary
return, that's commerce.
Colini; it, the subordinating of another soul should is sepa-
rating one's self form the universal intelligence. You can't
hate God and love yourself. You can't encourage another soul
to hate God. The ill-gotten gain will eventually turn to ashes
(something that is extremely hard to rid yourself of). You
can only love God above all else. His search is oneness for
himself. His search is our search, "that all should be one
with him." The universal intelligence is love. That's what
love is.

this border security legislation. In addition, Senators Frist,
McConnell, Santorum, Specter, Kyl, Sessions, Brownback,
DeWine, and Cornyn were among those very helpful in
shepherding this legislation through the Senate and I wish
to thank them."
Okay, those were the shepherds, but who were the sheep?
The truth is that Real ID does nothing to protect the bor-
ders and everything towards creating a national ID card.
So, why is that bad?
Ari Schwartz, associate director of the Center for Democ-
racy and Technology in Washington, said the government
is pushing for card identification systems without develop-
ing policies on how to use the new technologies and on what
privacy protections to provide.
"There's a push to use more technology in cards without
an idea of what we are using it for," he said.
President Bush endorsed moves in Congress to tack fed-
eral regulations for state-issued driver's licenses onto the
bill authorizing $81 billion in additional spending for the
war in Iraq.
The Real ID Act requires all new driver's licenses to in-
clude digital photographs, anti-counterfeiting features and
"machine-readable" information verifying a person's iden-
tity.
The Center for Democracy and Technology found some
technologies like facial recognition are expensive to run and
have error rates of up to 45 percent.
The embedded driver's-license identifiers are voluntary
on paper but mandatory in practice states may opt out,
but will lose a significant chunk of federal funding if they
do. States don't even get to decide how to implement the
regulations virtually uninh1iueu control is given to the
Department of Homeland Security concerning standards
for identification.
Does anyone else see a problem here? Rep. Ron Paul of
Texas, one Republican who still has some sense regarding
the Real ID Act, does. I agree with his dissenting assess-
ment of HR 418: "Supporters claim it is not a national ID
because it is voluntary. However, any state that opts out
will automatically make non-persons out of its citizens. They
will not be able to fly or to take a train."
So this is how our government leaders would treat Ameri-
cans, supposedly to protect our borders?
And this is the first time you've heard anything about it,
you say? Pretty crafty, huh?
Personally, I think we'd be better off if they just treated
us like illegal aliens instead.



Paxton's Ball Park


construction set


By Kerry Stewart
Paxton town council mem-
bers met with Brad Alford of
the Walton County Parks
and Recreation Department
during their regular meeting
on Tuesday, May 10. Alford
provided updated informa-
tion to council and attendees
regarding Paxton's FRDAP
grant to renovate .the ball
fields at Adams' Park.
Paxton received $200,000 to
erectathe new ball fields by
September of this year.
A lengthy discussion
evolved between Alford,
council members and the
Paxton Ruritan Club. The
Ruritan club, over the past
few years, has planted trees
and shrubs throughout the
park on behalf of the commu-
nity. Previous plans re-
viewed by Ruritan members
indicated that the fields
would be located in the north-
west corning of the park and
would not impact any current
trees.
Alford indicated that new
plans had been drawn to save
money for the city and gain
more use of the land. The
previous plan involved using
designated wetlands. Ap-
proximately 85 90 percent
of the grant funds would
have been used to fill in the
wetland area with dirt. The
county did not have adequate
manpower or finances to un-
dertake such an endeavor
when alternate plans were
available and viable. Under
the new plans, the county can
provide the labor as "in kind"
services on behalf of the town
at no cost.
In addition, with the ex-
pense of the original plans,
the town would only be able
to afford building two ball
fields. Under the new plans,
the town will be able to build
all four fields.
Under the new plans to de-
velop the four fields and a
concession stand, five of the
trees will have to either be
relocated or destroyed.
Ruritan president and Wal-
ton County Extension Agent
Bruce Ward was also in at-
tendance to address the is-
sue. Ward noted that this
was not the appropriate time
of year to move trees. In ad-
dition, the trees are upwards
of six inches in diameter and
will be difficult to uproot and
transplant,
Ward felt that it was a
waste of resources to move
the trees at this point. He
felt that if the grant obtained
to purchase the trees re-
quired that the trees remain
-in the park, that the Ruritan
club could purchase addi-
tional trees to replace the
current trees. City clerk and


grant administrator Suzan
Davis noted that $5,000 had
been allocated in the FRDAP
grant for landscaping.
Alford also offered an op-
tion of transplanting the
trees to another location if
they could be saved. Coun-
cilman Tommy Mathis noted
that the trees had been pur-
chased using grant funds and
asked if this would affect
moving the trees to another
location. Alford was not sure
if they had to stay within the
boundaries of the park or if
they could be moved else-
where (example used was
Britton Hill in Lakewood).
Davis will check on the grant
requirements on behalf of
council and the Ruritans.
Council members elected to
have Alford and the Ruritans
work together for the. best
options for the community.
Ward noted that they would
"save if we can, won't if we
can't and do what we have
got to do" in order to get the
job done. Current plans are
to start construction of the
new fields within the next
two weeks.
The children's playground
area will also need to move
approximately ten feet from
its current location. This pre-
sented no problems to coun-
cil. City employees will move
the playground equipment
prior to the county beginning
work.
The existing fencing
around the fields will also
have to be moved. Davis will
work to schedule city employ-
ees and the county work
crews to move the fencing.
The Department of. Chil-
dren and Family Services
(DCF) servicing the Paxton
area is in the process of relo-
cating all of their offices to Ft.
Walton. DCF has sent a pro-
posal to asking if Paxton
would serve as a drop off
point for various applications
that residents are required to
complete in order to obtain
DCF services. The proposal
provided several options in
which each option required
different levels of commit-
ment from the town.
Councilwoman Ann Sexton
made a motion that the town
agrees to partnership with
DCF to hand out and have
residents return the forms to
Town Hall.
The council unanimously
agreed to provide this service
to the residents of Paxton.
Once the agreement is in
place, residents will be able
to pick up food stamp and
other DCF applications at
Town Hall, complete the ap-
plication and return to Town

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.

"In Mobile, there is tunnel
that goes underneath the bay
and Lydia Edwards had ar-
ranged, through one of her
friends, a police escort
through it. Four miles away
and an hour's walk from the
tunnel, when I called the po-
liceman who was to escort me
- I found that it was his day
off. The policeman told us to
call dispatch. Dispatch and
the people who run the tun-
nel informed Nick and I that
I could not walk through the
tunnel. After many phone
calls between us and the
mayor's office, a state trooper
came to drive me the two
miles through the tunnel.
"Once I got through the
tunnel, the mayor's office
called to say that the chief of
police was waiting on the
other side to personally es-
cort me. I don't know who
was more upset me or Nick.
"For the past week, Nick
had been in my corner like


prize fighter's manager: giv-
ing me encouragement and
advice, yelling at the ref for
the low-blows shot by the op-
ponent, and laughing with
me as the last bell rang.

By Diane Wopsil
This year's 131st running
of the Kentucky Derby was
celebrated in DeFuniak
Springs with dozens of roses
and mint juleps.
A bit of the Kentucky spirit
was felt by all who attended
the Derby party. Guests wore
elaborate Derby hats and
sipped mint juleps from sil-
ver cups as they watched the
race.
A Kentucky Derby party
would not be complete with-
out at least one horse, so


Nick's diabetes reared its
ugly head and Nick got sick.
"With no escorts pre-ar-
ranged, for the next few days,
I clocked the miles to Pensa-
cola, walking through the
streets of Mobile, worried
about my friend. He wouldn't
be coming along for the rest
of the trip but his fighting
spirit walked with me."

the party organizers, Diane

Following the race, guests

Councilwoman Jenice
Armstrong reported that a
few potholes and streetlights
that were out had been re-
ported for repairs.
Councilman Joe Melton
noted that vehicles were driv-
ing on the concrete slab at
the Paxton Agricultural
Complex. There are cur-
rently signs posted prohibit-
ing vehicles from pulling un-
der the covered slab area.
The Ruritan members volun-
teered to work toward erect-
ing wooden pressure treated
posts to create a barrier that
would block the vehicles from
coming on to the concrete
area. They will obtain 180
feet of 3/8-inch cable and run
between the posts. The
Ruritan Club will work with
Sexton to design and erect
the barrier.
Sexton also noted that
items were being left on the
grounds of the stockyard fol-
lowing auctions. The current
agreement to rent the Stock-
yard for auctions is for rental
the first and third Saturday
of each month.

It is council's understand-
ing that the current agree-
ment does not cover a rental
fee for Friday night nor does
it include continue use of the
block building for storage.
Davis will pull the rental
agreement, which was en-
tered in to during the previ-
ous council administration,
and have the current council
members review the agree-
ment, at the next council
meeting.
Melton questioned that
there was no lock on the
town's dump, located off of
Hwy 147. People are still
going in to the area and
dumping illegal items. The
only allowable items are tree
limbs and other debris The
Department of Environmen-
tal Protection prohibits any-
thing that is not burnable
from being placed on the
property. If the materials
cannot be burned, then they
should be carried to the De-
Funiak Springs. Leaving
non-burnable items is a fin-
* able offense.


TEDESCO FROM FRONT


Bytell addressed council
regarding Sunshine Laws
prior to the conclusion of the
meeting. This month's Sun-
shine highlight dealt with
the State's conflict of inter-
est form. Form 8B "Memo-
randum of Voting Conflict
For County, Municipal, and
other Local Public Officers"
was distributed to council
members and others who re-
quested a copy. Bytell noted
that anytime an elected offi-
cial has a conflict with an
item, they were to state on
the record nature of the con-
flict and abstain from voting
on the issue. Within 15 days
of noting the conflict, the of-
ficial is to complete form 8B
and the form is to be filed
with the official record. At
the next council meeting, the
completed conflict of interest
form is to be read in to the
minutes of the meeting. Un-
der this format, the conflict
of interest has been publicly
stated in two meetings: once
prior to voting where the of-
ficial states that they have a
conflict and the nature of the
conflict and abstains from
voting; and, at the next meet-
ing where the official reads
in to the meeting the reason
for abstaining and the com-
pleted form that was filed 15
days following the conflict.
The form and minutes of the
meeting are open to public
inspection under the Sun-
shine Law.


Under provisions of Florida
Statutes, Section 112.317
(1991), a failure to make any
required disclosure consti-
tutes grounds for and may be
punished by one or more of
the following: impeachment,
removal or suspension from
office or employment, demo-
tion, reduction in salary, rep-
rimand, or a civil penalty not
to exceed $5,000.
Bytell assured council
members that it was her re-
sponsibility to make sure
that members followed the
law. If she heard any mem-
ber abstaining from voting
due to a conflict of interest,
she would follow up and pro-
vide them with the appropri-
ate forms and information.

Pam's leadership, the Walton
County Chamber of Com-
merce was twice recognized,
in 2001 and 2004, as the
Nation's Best Small Cham-
ber and received the national
award for excellence.
"Being a part of tremen-
dous accomplishments the
Walton County Chamber has
realized these past six years
has been a wonderful expe-
rience," said Tedesco. "The
Chamber has dramatically
grown its programming and
added increased value to its

Congressman Miller wins

"Taxpayers' Friend" award


According to the annual
rating of Congress, released
by the non-partisan National
Taxpayers Union (NTU), the
average lawmaker still voted
less than half the time to re-
duce or control the federal
burden on taxpayers.
During 2004, 59 lawmak-
ers attained .taxpayer scores
sufficient for a grade of "A"
(78 percent in the Senate and
74 percent in the House), and
hence were eligible for the
"Taxpayers' Friend Award"--
a major improvement over
the 29 who earned top grades
in 2003. However, the trend
worsened on the other end of
the scale -- 230 Senators and
Representatives captured
the title of "Big Spender" for
posting "F" grades in 2004
(versus 185 the year before).
For 2004, the "F" threshold
in both chambers was a score
of 19 percent or lower.
Among the recipients this
year was Congressman Jeff
Miller (R-F1-01), who ranked
number 10 out of 435 Me'm-
bers of Congress, based on
his support of responsible tax
and spending policies. Miller

Happy Days at Eastern Lake



By TIANA LARSEN
For more than forty years now, it's been happy days for Earl and Sarah Day at
Eastern Lake. Their four children and twelve grandchildren have also enjoyed
vacations and summers at the lake, beginning with a mobile home on a lot near
the lake in about 1965 and continuing with the Days' present home, "Happy Day's",
and a new addition, a renovated cottage next door.
Earl Day is a third generation Walton County native, born and raised in the
Euchee valley. He went to Knoxhill School for the tenth grade, then over to Walton
S High for the remainder of high school.
S Drafted into the Army during his senior year in 1943, Day was allowed to finish
S' ..: school before reporting for duty, when he decided the Navy might be more interest-
S' ing. He was told, however, that the Navy only accepted applicants with excellent
W_ .health.
S i-. '.i So, Day applied and took a physical with a Navy doctor, who asked him if he had
ever been to see a doctor. "Twice," Day replied. "What for?" asked the doctor. "Once
for snakebite and once for dog bite," he replied, laughing as he related this true
story, which got him into the World War II Navy instead of the Army.
Day was sent first to San Francisco, where the USS Pennsylvania was in dry
dock for repairs to damages incurred during the bombing at Pearl Harbor. After
'4.'. "... -. that, he spent 29 months in the Pacific, and was in Okinawa when the war ended.
!"':'.'- Discharged in New Orleans, Day returned to DeFuniak, where he met Sarah,
f whose family was in the grocery business, with a store and the nearly forgotten
'"" .-rolling grocery delivery business of the old days.
S' "Earl came in the store, and I took his money, and I've been taking it ever since,"
S. Sarah joked about their meeting. Married 52 years, the Days' love of the beach
goes way back. They honeymooned in one of just two cabins that existed in Inlet
Beach in 1952.
..t "There weren't many jobs in DeFuniak in those days," Day recalled, so he re-
".-.- enlisted in the Navy. Sarah traveled with Earl to far flung Navy bases, including
Guantanamo, Cuba, where one of the Days' daughters was born.
Sa s t .. (The Days have three daughters and one son, Pam, Paula, Patricia and Robert.
Paula is the former Okaloosa County Commissioner Paula Riggs.)
The Days left Cuba just a month or two before the evacuation that followed the
takeover by Castro.
They were sent to the Philippines during the Vietnam war, where Earl worked
as an advisor to the Philippine navy. "I think the Philippines were good for the

ern Lake after traveling the world for the US. Navy. They also spent time in Charleston, South Carolina, .and Newport, Rhode Is-
land. After a 30-year Navy career, operating dry docks, maintaining destroyers,
serving as a repair officer and other tasks, Day went to work for the Jacksonville
Ship Yard.
Day also owns a farm in DeFuniak Springs, which he bought in 1954 with care-
fully-saved Navy pay. Once a week or so, he checks on his three dozen or so head of
Brangus beef cattle, all of which have been named by Sarah.
SMost of the rest of the time, Earl and Sarah can be found at Happy Day's, where
they can tell you just about anything you want to know about Eastern Lake through-
Sa out the years.
The old mobile home was replaced by another one after Hurricane Eloise, and
then about 1986 "Happy Day's" was built on three lakefront lots, one of which was
1 purchased from Cube McGee, who bought it for his daughter for water skiing, a
sport all the Day children enjoyed as youngsters.
The story Earl tells about Eastern Lake, which might or might not be exactly
how it happened, is that Wesley, of the Wesley timber family built the home at
Eden State Gardens, bought 80 acres, sight unseen.
Upon arriving to inspect his purchase, Wesley is reputed to have remarked, "Well,
darn, there's a lake in the middle of it."
Wesley built three, or perhaps four, small cottages for his children. The Days are
not sure exactly when they were built, but Earl has a plat Wesley drew up which
...-' -"- ... "-. ~ shows a road, which was only sand track in those days, bit was accepted by the
county in 1939, he says.
At one time in the 1940s, Sarah's sister's husband owned one, and now the Days
own another, which Earl completely renovated last year. Among many other re-
.=. ,pairs, he had to have it leveled, because it had sunk down into :the sand.
"We've come a long way," remarked Sarah, as Earl recalled the days when no-
body wanted property in south Walton. "It wouldn't sprout a pea," was the saying
then, Earl remembered.
NEVER ONE TO STAY IDLE, Earl Day renovated this cottage last year. It is one of the
original Wesley cottages built on Eastern Lake, probably sometime in the 1930s. O.ut-
side and inside, Day saved the original wood, including the floors, walls and ceilings.

THIS LOVELY VIEW of Eastern Lake and the dunes of the Gulf of Mexico is the view from "Happy Day's."


THIS DOCK, built by Sarah and Earl Day, has survived a few hurricanes that took out
many other docks on Eastern Lake. Right now the lake water level is quite high, since the
outlet is currently not open to the Gulf of Mexico.


IT IS STILL HAPPY DAY'S at the Day home on Eastern Lake,
which survived two feet of water inside from Hurricane Opal
and a yard full of storm debris, mostly other people's docks,
after Hurricane Ivan.


BUILT FROM PLANS Earl Day modified to suit his family, the Day home on Eastern
Lake has been the site for many a family gathering throughout the years.

MATT MILLER and Paul
Cottrell entertain the crowd at
CD release party.




Anna Kay Drake honored at WDE


By RON KELLEY
Recent visitors to West De-
Funiak Elementary School
(WDE) could not help but no-
tice a very special display for
Anna Kay Peacock Drake in
the school's main lobby.
The display, created by
WDE Administrative Assis-
tant Beth Tucker, was done
to honor the teacher, who
died in April 2004, following
a brave battle with cancer.
Drake attended Chipola
Junior College, Gulf Coast
Community College and the
University of West Florida,
where she graduated with a
tA in -amentary edILicatii,.
I Marrli -to .for mer W\DE-.
Principal David Drake, Anna
Kay worked for the Walton
School District for 20 years,
starting as an aide at Maude
Saunders Elementary
School. She taught sixth-
grade at Walton Middle
School, then fifth-grade at
WDE and finally became a
permanent fourth-grade
teacher. Although her spe-


cialty was in language arts,
being an elementary school-
teacher, Drake taught some
of everything to her students.
In 1997, Drake was named
the WDE Teacher of the Year.
According to Beth Tucker,
family was very important to
Drake. That's why the lobby
display contains so many pic-
tures of her family, as well as
cards made by Drake and
given to family, friends and
children.
The display also contains
many gifts, pictures, notes
and other personal items
given to her by her students.
"Her students loved her
,anld 5she them,'" said 'Tucker,
who also noted that Drake
was an avid Florida Gator
fan and collected apple-deco-
rated objects.
Tucker said colleagues and
family are sure she'd be
pleased by the display and
said, "We hope that somehow
she knows that we miss her
very much. The place isn't
the same without her."

Gallagher

unveils

website

for seniors
Florida's Chief Financial
Officer Tom Gallagher un-
veiled a new website to help
arm Florida's seniors with
valuable information about
issues important to their fu-
ture, including shopping for
long-term care or Medicare
supplements, finding ways to
grow their money with in-
vestments or steer clear of
financial scams, or gaining
access to discounts on pre-
scription drugs.
Dubbed the "Senior Re-
source center," the Florida
Department of Financial Ser-
vices senior website can be
found by logging on to
www.flseniors.net.
"Florida is currently home
to more than 2.9 million Flo-
ridians over the age of 65 and
that number is projected to
grow by as much as 30 per-
cent," said Gallagher, who
oversees the department.
"Many of these seniors have
so much to keep up with -
their health, family and fi-
nances and they are going
on-line for information and
assistance. This website will
link seniors directly to tips
and resources they can use to
make informed choices."
Gallagher said that some of
the most iniportanit features
df the site for :seniors are
links to organizations offer-
ing information on free and
discounted prescription
drugs. Other resources on the
website offer extensive infor-
mation /about medicare, in-
surance plans and long-term
care options.
"Many of our state's seniors
are looking for ways to grow
their money and enjoy their
golden years," Gallagher
said. "Education and aware-
ness are some of the best
weapons in the fight against
investment and insurance
fraud."
Gallagher said seniors who
don't have access to a com-
puter, whether at home or a
local library, can call the de-
partment toll-free at 1-800-
342-2762 to order brochures
on any of the health or finan-
cial topics referenced on the
website.

Osteoporosis can be prevented and treated


By Debora Campbell, MS
CHES Walton CHD
Osteoporosis is a disease in
which bones become fragile
and more likely to break. If
not prevented or if left un-
treated, osteoporosis can
progress painlessly until a
bone breaks. These broken
bones, also known as frac-
tures, occur typically in the
hip, spine, and wrist.
Any bone can be affected,
but of special concern are


fractures of the hip and
spine. A hip fracture almost
always requires hospitaliza-
tion and major surgery. It can
impair a person's ability to
walk unassisted and may
cause prolonged or perma-
nent disability or even death.
Spinal or vertebral fractures
also have serious conse-
quences, including loss of
height, severe back pain, and
deformity.
Millions of Americans are
at risk. While women are


four times more likely than
men to develop the disease,
men also suffer from os-
teoporosis.
Building strong bones, es-
pecially before the age of 30,
can be the best defense
against developing os-
teoporosis, and a healthy
lifestyle can be critically im-
portant for keeping bones
strong.
Osteoporosis is largely pre-
ventable for most people.
Prevention of this disease is


very important because,
while there are treatments
for osteoporosis, there is cur-
rently no cure. There are five
steps to prevent osteoporosis.
No one step alone is enough
to prevent osteoporosis but
all five may.
*Get your daily recom-
mended amounts of calcium
and vitamin D.
*Engage in regular weight-
bearing exercise.
*Avoid smoking and exces-
sive alcohol.
*Talk to your doctor about
bone health.
*Have a bone density test
and take medication when
appropriate.

Give a godly

example for children

By Dr. Robert M. Jaye

Parents need to give a godly example to their children.
Proverbs in the Old Testament tells us that parents are to
"Train up a child in the way he should go" (22:6). In age that
person will not depart from the early training. One's reli-
gion is not so much taught as it is caught. The best gift
parents can give children is to live a godly life before them.
Children imitate the parents either for good or bad.
Parents can provide a godly atmosphere for children. The
best thing a child can observe is a mother and father deeply
committed to Christ and in love with each other. Children
get a sense of security and peace from such an environment.
Think about the influence on a child living in a home where
prayers are offered, the Bible is read and church attended.


Real expressions of God's love are powerful.
Parents should live a godly life before their children. The
best way to explain what a Christian is, is to be one. What
kind of example do you give to your children? A father once
came home one cold evening, staggering through the snow.
He went into the house and went to bed, leaving his stag-
gered footprints in the snow. The next morning he looked
out the window and saw his little son. The boy played, but
he staggered. The father asked, "What are you doing, son?"
The boy answered, "I am trying to walk in your footsteps."
Parenting is one of life's great responsibilities. What is
the best thing you give your child? You give instruction,
personhood, discipline, and a godly example in the name of
our Lord Jesus Christ.

The Measure

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

It has been my experience that too many of us, as
Christians, have been confused about love. We have as-
sumed that attaining the look of love was the same real-
ity as actually being transformed into a loving person.
I'm not saying that we have consciously planned on
being shallow or noncommittal, but that somehow we
have settled on the cosmetic instead of the real.
We have developed an altar ego, a look for church
that lasts, at best, just a few minutes longer than the
church service itself. All we have really accomplished is
to perfect the art of acting like Christians.
I think we have yet to learn to consistently walk ac-
cording to the standards of Christ's love.
I hear how quick some are to speak about the flaws of
those they supposedly love, and I wonder, what kind of
love demeans an individual behind their back. When I
witness unloving words from a Christian's mouth, I am
reminded that we have much to learn about Jesus and
what it means to follow Him.
David prayed, Let the words of my mouth and the
meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, 0
LORD, my rock and my Redeemer (Ps 19:14).
Our words are the by-product of our meditations.
Whatever is brooding in our hearts will eventually
ascend to our lips. If we have unforgiveness prowling
within, our conversations will be barbed with negative
comments; even in moments of light-hearted banter, if
we are harboring bitterness, it will slice through our
speech.
Jesus taught that ithe mouth speaks out of that which
fills the heart (Matt 12:34). We cannot fix our words
without first fixing our hearts.
When the Lord judges us for our words, it is because
He is seeking to purify our hearts.
The heart is deceitful above all things and it is diffi-
cult to know our own iniquity.
Yet if we simply pause and listen to how many of our
words are without love, we can track them back to the
real problem: loveless hearts.
Christians are in the fire of God.
The Holy Spirit is purging the church from negative
chatter. Afresh anointing is at hand where God's people
shall speak with the character necessary to represent
Him.
What the Lord told the prophet Jeremiah He is speak-
ing also to us: Therefore, thus says the LORD, If you
return, then I will restore you, before Me you will stand;
and if you extract the precious from the worthless, You
will become My spokesman (Jer 15:19).
Let us pray that as Gdd exposes our lack of love a
time will soon come when we will pray with credibility:
You have tried my heart; You have visited me by night;
You have tested me and You find nothing; I have pur-
posed that my mouth will not transgress (Ps 17:3).

West
[)eFuniak
-lementary
students
visit different
cultures

Mrs. Ealum and Mrs,
iMerchant's second-grade
class at West DeFumniak El-
jementary has been reading
about different cultures.
lEach emphasized a ,lif tt Ia
culture from China and
Mexico.
As a culminating activity,
authentic food dishes were
made and local restaurants
provided food and utensils to
allow students to sample food
from the two cultures. Stu-
dents made Chinese lanterns
and dragons, practiced Chi-
nese writing as well as
learned how to write in Span-
ish. Students also listened to
a variety of Chinese and
Mexican music. Two WDE
staff members came to the
classrooms and shared their
cultural backgrounds and re-
sponded to questions from
the students.
Mr. Permenter came and
shared his knowledge of the
use of chopsticks from his.
travels over seas.
School officials expressed
thanks to Golden Bowl and
Jin Nin's restaurants for pro-
viding the rice, chopsticks,
and fortune cookies, and
thanked Mrs. Galloway and
Mr. Silva for cooking the
Mexican dishes. This pro-
vided students with experi-

Fourth Grade students at
Freeport Elementary School
became archeologist for a day
by digging up miniature di-
nosaur bones.
The students were given
baked clay eggs that had
miniature dinosaur bones
encased inside. Each student
had to work carefully to chip
away at the clay tb reveal
miniature bones. They then
had to work with extreme
care using special tools to re-
lease the bones from their
earthen grave.
Once the bones were all
excavated and cleaned, the
students assembled the
bones to create a miniature
Dinosaur. Students discov-
ered just how difficult it is to
work with care and precision
bo remove objects. By experi-
anzing this tedious work first
riand, the t udentr, t got a true
appreciation for just how dif-
ficult an archeologist's job
really is.

Nicholls State punished
by .NCAA: The Thibodau,
Louisiana-based university
was put on probation earlier
last week for four years due
to the charge that an aca-
demic advisor and an assis-
tant football coach were
doing course work for more
than two dozen'student-a'th-
letes.
The university's proposed
penalties, including forefeit
ting football and basketball
victories and cutting scholar-
ships in those sports, were
accepted. The NCAA added a
year to the school's .sug-
gested year probation.
Both parties agree that the
university was in clear viola-
tion, and a just punishment
should ensue. The NCAA
committee also :added -that
additional penalties were
warranted and a decision
would be made on those pen-
alties in the next few weeks.

Two braves
become chiefs
On April 23, 2005, Denia
Lorenz and Mickey Wren of
Walton High School traveled
to Tallahassee to audition for
the Florida State University
Marching Chiefs Colorguard.
The girls were required to
prepare a solo routine of their
own design to music of their
choice.
Upon arrival, staff mem-
bers of the Chiefs also taught
them a new routine.
The girls were judged on
marching and performance
skills, performance appear-
ance, body coordination,
physical stamina and their
ability to work with others in
a group situation.
Dena and Mickey have
been in the Walt-on High
School Colorguard for four
years under the direction of
instructor, Melonie Price.
The girls will start with
the Chiefs in August of 2005.

The Panhandle is filled with vast
marshes, mysterious-cypress
swamps and flower-filled bogs.
These wetlands are a treasure. With
proper care, we can avoid making
the expensive and heartbreaking
environmental mistakes that were made
when South Florida started booming.

Since Florida became a state in 1824,
it has lost more than two-thirds of its
original wetlands. But Florida. still has
more wetland acreage than any state
except Alaska.

The Panhandle's wetlands are biological
powerhouses, supporting a long list of
species similar to tropical rain forests
and coral reefs. Their beauty is obvious
when you glide past in a kayak or stroll
on a wetland boardwalk.

But did you know that wetlands control
flooding during storms? When wetlands
cover just twenty percent of the land,


flooding is reduced by as much as 90,
percent. Wetlands also clean our drinking
water and help regulate our climate. Muck
and peat wetland soils tie up carbon, a
global-warming gas. Without wetlands
acting as marine nursery grounds, there
would be no seafood to enjoy.


The proposed Panama City airport
will wipe out a whopping 2,000 acres
of wetlands. Once those wetlands are
gone, we'll never get them back.


As development hits the Panhandle, our
wetlands are at risk. Because of a quirk
in state law, many of the wetlands in
Northwest Florida have less protection
than wetlands in other parts of the state.
At the same time, the development boom
is fragmenting what wetlands we do have.
We're losing wetlands at the very time
we need them most to protect our homes
from floods and to absorb polluted urban
runoff.


The proposed Panama City airport just
one development in this fast-growing
region will wipe out a whopping 2,000
acres of wetlands which feed clean, fresh
water into West Bay. Once those wetlands
are gone, we'll never get them back. And
the clean water will be replaced with
polluted run-off from the paved-over
wetlands.

If you care about the Panhandle, take a
few minutes to get involved and help steer
a positive future here, one that balances
resource protection with growth. Citizens
can make a real difference in how we
grow. We don't have to look like every
place else!

Want to learn more? Call 1-877-WATER45
and we'll send you information about
groups that are working for a positive
Panhandle future. We'll also tell you how
you can better protect your home and the
places you care about.

south Walton


wins awards


The South Walton Tourist
Development Council (TDC),
with the help of usdm.net,
the leading interactive
agency for the travel indus-
try, won two awards in the
2005 Internet Advertising
Competition (IAC) from the
Web Marketing Association.
The TDC was nationally rec-
ognized for the Best Travel
Online Newsletter campaign
and Best Regional Online
campaign for its hurricane
recovery efforts.
"By working in partnership
with usdm.net, we are con-
tinuously on the forefront of
successful online cam-
paigns," said Kriss Titus, ex-
ecutive director of the TDC.
"We know that travelers have
increased their use of the
Internet to research vacation
destinations and plan and
book their trips. We are
proud to work with usdm.net
to consistently execute inno-
vative and creative pro-
grams."
In September 2004, the
Travel Industry Association
(TIA) reported that nearly 64
million online travelers-30
percent of the U.S. adult
population-used the Internet
in the past year to get travel
and destination information.
Of that group, 44.6 million


booked at least one travel
service or product online.
The campaign awarded for
"Best Travel Online Newslet-
ter" targeted meeting plan-
ners and succeeded in in-
creasing awareness for the
destination's diverse meeting
space, accommodations and
activities for groups.
The "Best Regional Online
Campaign" recognized the
TDC's quick response to the
potential negative effects on
tourism after Hurricane
Ivan. The inventive "Open for
Relaxation" campaign com-
municated that south Wal-
ton beaches were open for
business and ensured that
visitors maintained existing
vacation plans while attract-
ing new visitors who may
have planned to visit other,
more devastated areas of the
Florida Panhandle.
"We're honored that
usdm.net and beaches of
south Walton have been rec-
ognized'fbr such innovative
work in the area of online
advertising," said Leah
Woolford, founder and CEO
of usdm.net. "Each of the
winning campaigns under-
scores the determination our
clients have in support of in-
teractive marketing excel-
lence."

THE CHOCTAWHATCHEE BAY and its watershed
represent a priceless resource for the surrounding com-
munity. The Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance is devoted


The only way-to save



Choctawhatchee ..Bay.


By DOTTY NIST
Stormwater runoff has
long been suspected as the
culprit for excessive nutrient
levels in the Choctawhatchee
Bay, and that has now been
confirmed in a scientific
study.
While nutrients such as
nitrogen and phosphorous
are essential to life in the
Bay, in excess they can dis-
rupt the natural flow of the
bay system by causing algae
overgrowth that can block
sunlight from plants and ani-
mals.
The Choctawhatchee Basin
Alliance (CBA) is a local non-
profit organization devoted to
sustaining the Chocta-
whatchee Bay and educating
citizens about its benefits as
a healthy natural resource.
This month, members of
the organization received a
report on a study recently
concluded by the organiza-
tion on "nutrient loading" in


the Bay.
In the study, water was col-
lected in representative loca-
tions in the Bay and sampled
with regard to 30 different
parameters. According to
CBA spokesperson Joy
Brown, data from the study
established a strong correla-
tion between nutrient
"spikes" and rainfall events
preceded by extended dry
spells of two weeks to several
months.
"That equals stormwater
runoff," Brown concluded.
Stormwater pollution,,also
known as nonpoint source
pollution, occurs when run-
off containing residue from
land-based activities enters
waterways and Bays. With
this type of pollution, rainwa-
ter picks up not only nutri-
ents but sediments, nutri-
ents, organic matter, bacte-
ria, oils, and other chemicals,
transporting them into
creeks, rivers, Bays and its


,estuaries.
Nonpoint source pollution
can result in algae blooms,
fish kills, decline in natural
seagrass beds, and also shell-
fish bed and swimming beach
closures.
What can be done to com-
bat nonpoint source pollu-
tion?
Local governments can
play an important role. A
number of them, including
Walton and Okaloosa coun-
ties, have implemented
stormwater master plans.
Local utilities are also help-
ing by working to eliminate
septic tanks near the Bay
and improve efficiency of
water use.
Citizens can help the bay
by endorsing and supporting
these initiatives. In addition,
there is still more that they
can do as individuals.
Some practical things that
a citizen can. do on their own
property to help the bay in-

Decision imminent on beach nourishment lawsuit


By DOTTY NIST
A judge's decision is ex-
pected very soon on a consti-
tutional challenge that could
impact Walton County and
Destins's joint plans for
large-scale renourishment of
about six miles of beachfront.
Whether that decision will
put the constitutional chal-
lenge to rest is unknown at
this time.
In summer 2004, five Wal-
ton County beachfront prop-
erty owners and some 50
from Destin challenged the
constitutionality of sections
of the Florida Statutes deal-
ing with beach renourish-
ment. The plaintiffs orga-
nized two nonprofit organiza-
tions, Stop the Beach
Renourishment and Save
Our Beaches. Their lawsuit
was filed in Leon County.
Motions for summary judg-
ment have been filed on both
sides in the lawsuit. Defen-
dants include Walton County,
Destin, the state Department
of Environmental Protection
(DEP,) and the Board of
Trustees of the Internal Im-
provement Trust (the Florida
governor and cabinet.)
A summary judgment is a
judge's decision made in lieu
of proceeding with a trial; it
takes place when the facts of
a case are not disputed.
At a May 11 hearing in Tal-
lahassee on the matter,
- Judge Jonathan Sjostrom in-
dicated that he would render
a decision on the motions
within 14 days. The constitu-
tional challenge could be con-
cluded in a decision by the
judge to grant either side's
motion for summary judge-
ment. In the absence of that,
the matter would proceed to
trial.
Currently at the center of
contention is an argument by
the plaintiffs that in connec-

stitutionally deprived of "ac-
cretion rights" on the
beachfront portion of their
property.
Where deeds on beachfront
property show private own-
ership extending to the gulf,
when natural beach accre-
tion occurs the accreted por-
tion becomes part of the prop-
erty. Florida claims sub-
merged lands off the coast as
state sovereign property.


Prior to state sovereign
lands being reclaimed as in
a beach nourishment project,
it is a state requirement for
an erosion control line (ECL)
to be set in the area of the
average mean high water el-
evation. The purpose of the
ECL is to separate private
property from the formerly
submerged lands to be re-
claimed through renourish-
ment. So, in effect, the set-
ting of the ECL would negate
the extension of beachfront'

Big changes


Old Highway 98 plans revisited


By DOTTY NIST
Big changes will be on the
way for Scenic Gulf Drive
(a.k.a. Old Highway 98) if
Walton County follows
through with improvement
plans now on engineering
consultants' drawing boards.
The proposed improve-
ments are aimed at address-
ing stormwater drainage,
pedestrian flow, parking,
safety, and signage issues on
this important three-mile-
long beachfront route, a road-
way under stress for at least
a decade.
The improvement plans
produced by county engineer-
ing consultants Preble-Rish
come with a $4.6 million
price tag and, if approved,
could be implemented in
stages, according to Cliff
Knauer, project manager.
Knauer has been working
on the plans for over eight
months and has shepherded
them through a series of four
public input meetings.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows joined
Knauer and a sizeable group
of residents at the latest ses-
sion, held on May 12 at Faith
Assembly.
Knauer noted that the
county has a 100-foot right-
of-way on the scenic highway
but that only 40-60 feet are
currently being utilized.
Plans involves the reclama-
tion of most of the 100 feet
for features such as bike-pe-
destrian paths, utility ease-
ments, off-street parking,
and strips set aside for land-
scaping.
Currently bike/pedestrian
paths lie close to the road-
way. The proposed plans
would move them close to the
outer boundary of the county
right-of-way to get pedestri-
ans and bikers further from
traffic for safety.
Included in the plans are
in-ground stormwater struc-
tures to keep. runoff from ,
blowing into the sea oats and
dune, as is'happening now,
Knauer explained, plus
signage in conformance with
uniform traffic standards.
According to the plans,
some turn lanes will be elimi-
nated. A new traffic light is
being proposed at the South
Holiday Road intersection.
The plans also call for the


elimination of 10 of the cur-
rent 28 pedestrian cross-
walks that now exist on Sce-
nic Gulf Drive, with other
crosswalks to be relocated.
In many cases, crosswalks
for adjacent condominiums
are side by side. Knauer said
that in these instances the
plans call for the walks to be
combined -at a distance con-
venient to each complex or
residence. In all cases, cross-
walks lined up with drive-
ways, which Knauer saw as
a very dangerous arrange-
ment, would be eliminated.
The raised crosswalks at
Frangista are to be leveled.
All crosswalks are to be uni-
form with identical signage,
including warning signs, and
possibly with pedestrian-ac-
tivated flashing lights like
the new high-tech Gulf Place,
Flamingo Village and Fort
Panic crosswalks.
Access to crosswalks and
then from crosswalks to
beach accesses would be via
the paths on either side of the
highway, which are to run
the length of the segment
from the county line to
Miramar Beach Drive.
By far, most beach accesses
along the roadway are pri-
vate, many with fences and
gates to restrict access.
The plans call for fences
currently on the county right-
of-way to be removed and
access gates to be relocated
south off the right-of-way to
make room for the roadside
paths, which are to be
flanked on the south by 42-


inch-tall handrails.
This aspect of the plans
was not popular with some of
the condominium owners,
but other attendees thought
it would work as well or bet-
ter than the current situation
for keeping vacationers off
the dunes near the private
beach accesses. The area has
a high volume of pedestrian
traffic and is popular for visi-
tors.
At one of the few public ac-
cesses on the highway,
Miramar Beach Access, a
crosswalk will be added, ex-
tending from the extra park-
ing on the north side and
leading to the access.
At a popular beachfront
eatery, the Whale's Tail at
Seascape, the dangerous
parking on the right-of-way
situation is to be eliminated
in favor of a 70-80-space off-
street parking lot, separated
from the highway.
Twelve-foot-wide utility
easements on the north side
are part of the plans. Some
attendees were strongly in
favor of utilities being moved
underground, and the ease-
ments will leave that option
available if utility companies
decide to pursue it.
There will be no landscap-
ing within the utility ease-
ments, but the county will
allow condo and homeowner
associations to place land-
scaping in designated areas
of the right-of-way on either
side of the pavement. Land-
scaping expenses have not
been included as part of

DISTRICT 5 COMMISSIONER Cindy Meadows met with
Miramar Beach residents on May 12 to discuss proposed im-
provements to Scenic Gulf Drive.


WaterSound North clears to next to last hurdle


By TIANA LARSEN
After more than two years
of planning, just one more
hurdle remains for St. Joe's
WaterSound North Develop-
ment of Regional Impact
(DRI.)
The planning commission
recommended approval of
the 2,425-acre project in the
eastern end of south Walton,
at their May 12 meeting,
sending it on to the Walton
County Board of County
Commission (BCC) for the fi-
nal necessary last approval.
Most of the project is lo-
cated north of U,S. 98 be-
tween the highway and the
Intracoastal Waterway and
continues east to Lake
Powell.
Due to the large size of
WaterSound North, DRI ap-
proval was also required and
received from the state of
Florida, the West Florida
Regional Planning Council,
and other agencies.
DRI approval includes an
affordable housing analysis,
and, although the state did
not require St. Joe to actually
produce any affordable hous-
ing, 150 affordable dwelling
units will be built.
"We will deliver affordable
housing in south Walton,"


said Nick Casala, St. Joe vice
president. The specific loca-
tion in south Walton was not
identified, but Casala said
construction would begin in
July, 2007 and should be
completed by 2009.
"The affordable housing
program is exciting and I
hope it sets a precedent," re-
marked Tom Patton, plan-
ning commissioner, as he
made a motion to recommend
approval.
There was some criticism
of the methodology used for
the affordable housing analy-
sis. Local citizen Bryan
Bruns commented that al-
though he thinks the 150
units are wonderful, the
analysis, in his opinion, was
not up to the same high stan-
dards he believes St. Joe is
applying in its environmen-
tal stewardship.
Planning staff pointed out
that the methodology is the
one used by the Department
of Community Affairs in its
DRI review. "I am pleased by
the 150 units," said Pat
Blackshear, planning and
development director.
St. Joe's Casala responded
that no single project can
solve a countywide problem,
and that in the last four


years, project after project
has been approved with no
affordable housing.
The WaterSound North
DRI incorporates the existing
Camp Creek North neighbor-
hood and a portion of
WaterSound North that was
previously approved.
St. Joe created a new land
use category, "coastal vil-
lage," to accommodate the
development. The category
allows two units per acre, but
the final density will be
closer to one unit per acre
and will be clustered in vil-
lages on the uplands, in or-
der to avoid extensive wet-
lands on the property.
The same planning prin-
ciples applied at WaterColor
will be used in WaterSound
North, Casala explained, de-
scribing the development as
low density, primarily single-
family, and with floor plans
directed to second home and
vacation home owners.
In its entirety, the mixed
use plan will have 1,380
dwelling units, 330,000
square-feet of retail, 127,380
square feet of office space,
and 51 holes of golf on three
courses, including the exist-
ing Camp Creek course and
a new, novel, six-hole course.


project costs, and it is hoped
that associations will be will-
ing to take on responsibility
for planting and landscape
maintenance.
In response to attendees'
comments, Meadows asked
Knauer to explore alterna-
tives for protection of the
dunes from foot traffic, in
addition to that of the hand-
rails along the beachside pe-
destrian/bicycle paths.
The county will be seeking
public input on the plans for
at least another 30 days,
prior to submittal for state
and federal permits. Mead-

Knauer said that in the
meantime he will be going
door-to-door to discuss the
plans with residents.
Meadows also encouraged
residents to get involved with
the effort to designate Scenic
Gulf Drive as a state scenic
highway. The designation
would make grant funds

DMV seeks to end long lines


The Florida Department of
Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles (DHSMV) an-
nounced the installation of a
new web-based appointment
scheduling system, giving
Floridians an alternative to
waiting in lines to receive
their drivers license. The sys-
tem, Online Appointment
Services and Information
System (OASIS), is now


available in 14 counties
throughout Florida.


Beginning April 25, 2005,
Tavares customers will be
able to schedule driver li-
cense appointments with
their local state driver license
office via the Internet by log-
ging on to htty://
oasis.hsmv.state.fl.us/. Cur-


rently, customers may do this
by phone. However, this new
option allows them to set the
appointment themselves,
avoiding the need to call the
driver license office directly.
This new alternative also re-
duces the number of tele-
phone calls to department
staff, allowing them more
time to serve customers in
the office.

Recently, Children's Voice
and the Cope Center con-
ducted a poster contest titled
"Keeping Me Safe," where
children from 6 to 12 years
of age completed posters on
how adults can keep them
safe. Their ideas astounded
the judges. Some were on
domestic violence, some were
about parents having bound-
aries for their child or chil-
dren, and some were about
safety at home, but each ex-

With the recent news of
child abduction, it's impor-

dren. One child suggested a
curfew of 7 p.m., another sug-
gested placing alarms on the
bedroom windows, or share
pointy plants in front of doors
for those whose families can
not afford alarm systems.
Each child placed a piece of
their life on these posters;

our children.
Have you made a safety
plan with your children?
They are simple to complete
and could help the child
when he/she finds they are in
harm's way. Teaching chil-
dren whom they can trust,
like law enforcement,
firefighters, teachers, and
principles can offer them the
tools to seek out help when
in trouble.
If someone approaches a
child and tries to get them to
leave the area, instruct them
to scream loudly," You are not
my parent, get away from
me," and other phrases that
could and should gain atten-
tion to other adults. Teach
children how to call 911, in-
struct them to stay on the
line with the operator and
follow the person's directions.
Have a child be able to iden-
tify safe havens in the com-
munity, such as Wal-Mart,'
Kmart, the Department of
Juvenile Justice, The Cope
Center, as well as all police
and sheriff's departments.
These places will address the
needs of a child who might be


* Safe

* Effective


in danger and can keep them
safe until their parent ar-
rives.
Who is )a stranger? Chil-
dren often answer by saying,
"A stranger is someone you
do not know." That is a good
response, but children should
also be taught that just be-
cause they have met someone
before doesn't mean that they
should be trusted. Children
need to be taught that if any
adult, whether that person is
a friend, family member or
stranger, hurts them, that
they should tell an adult that
they trust. Parents should
talk to their children about
who they trust so that the
child has options of who to go
to.
When we teach children
how to keep themselves safe,
we strengthen our commu-
nity. Children feel confident
because they have the tools
to make decisions regarding
how they can stay safe and
that benefits all of us.
For more information re-
garding how to help a child
learn to be safe, contact Shel-
ter House, Inc. at 892-5450.

May is Skin Cancer Awareness month


Florida Department of
Health (DOH) officials re-
mind Floridians that al-
though skin cancer is the
most common of all cancers,
it is also one of the most pre-
ventable. May 2 was desig-
nated by the American Acad-
emy of Dermatology (AAD)
as "National Skin Self-Ex-
amination Day" and "Mela-
noma Monday" to raise
awareness about melanoma
and encourage Americans to
begin a lifelong habit of regu-
lar skin self-examination.
"There are safe ways for
residents and visitors to en-
joy the Sunshine State's
natural wonders while pro-
tecting themselves from over-
exposure to the sun and
harmful UV rays," DOH Sec-
retary John 0. Agwunobi,
M.D., M.B.A., M.P.H., said.
"Before heading to
Florida's beaches, trails or
simply for an afternoon at the
community park, be sure to
apply sunscreen with an SPF
of at least 15, and follow the
manufacturer's recommen-
dations."
According to the American
Cancer Society, most of the
more than one million cases
of non-melanoma skin cancer
diagnosed yearly in the
United States are sun-re-
lated. Melanoma, the most
serious type of skin cancer,
will account for about 59,600
cases of skin cancer in 2005
and most (about 7,800) of the
10,600 deaths due to skin
cancer. As seen at the na-
tional level, age-adjusted in-


cidence rates for melanoma
in Florida increased from
1981 to 2001.
However, the age-adjusted
mortality rates for melanoma
declined over the ten-year
period from 1991 to 2001.
More than 3,000 new mela-
noma cases are reported each
year to the statewide cancer
registry, the Florida Cancer
Data System.
The American Cancer So-
ciety recommends that indi-
viduals check for possible
melanomas by carefully ex-
amining all moles and birth-
marks, and look for signs by
remembering the "ABC's" of
possible melanoma: Asym-
metry, Border irregularity,
Color variation, Diameter
greater than a pencil eraser
.and Enlargement. See a doc-
tor if self-examination re-
sults in any suspicious areas
on the skin.
Exposure to the sun's ultra-
violet (UV) rays appears to be
the most important environ-
mental factor in the progres-
sion of skin cancer. This
makes skin cancer a largely
preventable disease when
sun protection measures
against UV rays are used
consistently. People can take
many simple steps to plan


ahead and protect them-
selves from the sun's UV
rays. These options are im-
portant to use all year
round.
To protect yourself:
*Seek shade under a tree,
umbrella or shelter
Cover up with lightweight
clothing
*Wear a hat to protect your
face, scalp, ears and neck
*Apply sunscreen liberally
with at least a sun protection
factor (SPF) of 15, and reap-
ply at least every two hours
or after swimming
*Wear sunglasses that de-
ter UV rays, which can cause
cataracts
*Individuals particularly
sensitive to the sun, may
want to avoid exposure be-
tween the peak sun hours of
10 a.m. to 3 p.m.(even on
cloudy days)
The Florida Department of
Health encourages individu-
als to not only protect their
skin, but to also get screened
for skin cancer. For more in-
formation, call the National
Cancer Institute at 1-800-4-
CANCER or go to the CDC's

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

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


DATE:
TIME:
LOCATION:


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 -' ., .: .I
and available for public inspection and/or r ;* :
copying at the Office of the Clerk of .4
Court, Walton County Courthouse. 571 W,5,.,
U.S. Highway 90, DeFuniak Springs, ., .
Florida, between the hours of 8:00 a.m.
and 4:30 p.m. except on weekends and
holidays.
The information presented at this hear-
ing will be used to afford the Petitioner, l
landowners, any affected units of local
government, and the general public, a fair
and adequate opportunity to appear and WaterColor
present oral and written comments "
regarding the establishment of the S-
District. If adopted, the ordinance will ',* S.er c
establish the NatureWalk Community e .AO/
Development District, name its initial Seasid 3.
Board of Supervisors and designate the
land to be serviced by the District. Gulf of Mexico
The land area proposed to be served
by the District is surrounded by the Point
Washington State Forest on its north, south and east boundaries. A small portion of the west
boundary of the land fronts the east side of County Road 395, the northern portion of the west
boundary is bordered by the Point Washington State Forest, and the southern portion of the west
boundary is bordered by the Watercolor DRI. The District will comprise approximately 153.04 acres
of land. The boundaries of the lands proposed to be served by the District are outlined in the map
depicted in this notice. There is no real property located within the boundaries of the District that
will be excluded from the jurisdiction of the District. The Petitioner has proposed that the District will
construct or acquire certain infrastructure improvements in order to serve a development commonly
referred to as the NatureWalk at Seagrove development.
By way of information, a community development district is a local unit of special purpose govern-
ment authorized by statute to ensure the provision of infrastructure to serve community develop-
ments subject to state and local regulatory requirements governing the lawful use and development
of the property. Establishment of a district pursuant to Chapter 190, Florida Statutes, is not a devel-
opment order under Chapter 380, Florida Statutes. All planning, permitting and other e'iul::,.,
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 LxhiL'.i 8 to the Petition. By way of sum-
mary, the SERC estimates that the principal entities likely to be .*t.. ~',- 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 Wie 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.

Seaside Repertory Theate set to open summer season


By BRUCE COLLIER
Seaside Repertory Theatre
is about to kick off its 2006
summer season with The
Fisherman and His Wife,"an
adaptation of the classic
Grimm Brothers fairy tale.
The play will open on Mon-
day, May 23, at the outdoor
Seaside Amphitheatre.
The Fisherman and His
Wife, written by Larry and
Vivian Snipes, will be di-
rected by Rosemary Newcott.
Newcott is the Sally G.
Tomlinson Artistic Director
of Theatre for Youth at
Atlanta's Alliance Theatre.


Her previous directing cred-
its at Seaside Rep include
Charlotte' sWeb, Androcles
and the Lion, A Midsummer
Night's Dream, and The Leg-
end ofPecos Bill.

The Fisherman and His
Wife is a three-character play
that tells the story of a poor
fisherman, who hooks an
enchanted flounder. In re-
turn for his freedom, the
flounder promises to grant
the fisherman's every wish.
This arouses the greed of the
fisherman's wife, who asks
for more and more.


In the role of the Fisher-
man is Alex Aschinger. Joe
Starr will play the fish, and
'Jennifer Steele will play the
wife. All three are veterans
of Seaside Rep.

The play is for all ages, and
admission is free. All perfor-
mances begin at 8 p.m. Fish-
erman will run every Mon-
day, except for July 4,
through August 8. There will
be a special performance on
Sunday, July 3.
In rehearsal now is Sylvia,
A.R. Gurney's adult comedy
of a love triangle between a


man, a woman, and their dog.
Sylvia, directed by Seaside
Rep's artistic director Craige
Hoover, will open on Wednes-
day, June 1, at the Seaside
Meeting Hall.
Seaside recently renovated
the Meeting Hall theatre,
adding a new light grid and
sound board. The theatre has
a year-round lease on the
hall, and is working toward
its goal of offering a full
year's season of theatre and
entertainment.
For more information, call
Seaside Repertory Theatre at
231-3033.

EVENTS


Well, summer is al-
most here and that
Means tourists and
traffic in retail
stores and on the
highways. It's a
headache for some
locals and some local
authorities, but
great news for re-
sorts, entertainers
s and service vendors.
e
e If you have travelled down
Hwy. 98 in the past month or
so, you could not have missed
the sheriff department ve-
hicles at each county road
intersection. They are ac-
companied by road signs,
signal alerts and even under-
cover officers vehicles.


Traffic has steadily picked
up over the past few weeks.
More cars are fighting for
space on the road, CR 30A is
more congested than ever
and construction cones,
trucks, cranes and signs dot
the streets and roads all over
Though many have com-
plained about the inconven-
ience of all that is taking
place, the summer months
always bring in a much
needed boost to the local
economy, especially since
Hurricane Ivan blasted
through the Florida Pan-
handle last September.
Not only were the resort
communities hit hard, but so
were many restaurants,
shops and service compa-
nies. Businesses that are not
always in the public eye, but
serve a much needed purpose
here in Walton County.
Businesses such as cater-
ers, wedding planners,
rental companies, photogra-


phers, florists and other
services that cater to brides,
corporate events and parties,
saw a dramatic slow down of
events due to the fact that
many of the wedding and
event venues received minor
to major damage from Hurri-
cane Ivan.
Brides changed wedding
destinations, families re-
routed their vacation plans
and corporate parties
cancelled their meetings due
to room shortages and facil-
ity damage.
But, all that is in the past.
With the summer months,
those vendors are seeing rec-
ord crowds and receiving
record bookings for events as
far out as the fall of 2007.
This increase has baffled
many and given those busi-
ness owners the "ok" to in-
crease prices for their serv-
ices and goods.
Once again, Walton
County is one of the top con-
vention and wedding desti-
nations in the state. In-
creased bookings for both
events are now fighting for
space, not due to any hurri-
cane damage, but to the fact
of limited time and space
here on the Emerald Coast.
Talking to various caterers
florists, photographers and
wedding planners and resort
community marketing direc-
tors, they say that business


is better than ever and seems
to be back to stay. Some ven-
dors have reported up to a 60
percent increase in sales and
bookings.
Many have said that they
have benefitted from all
those unfortunate cancella-
tions of weddings and events
that had been planned and
booked in Escambia and
Okaloosa counties, due to
the fact that those counties
are still trying to rebuild
from Hurricane Ivan. The
business remains in the
state, but the local economy
has really seen a positive jolt
since last September.
The influx of events and
weddings have even forced
"9me brides to have to marry
n a Tuesday afternoon and
follow two other brides at the
,ame venue.

For the service industry,
such as hotels, resorts, cater-
ers and rental stores, the
increase has been a much
needed boost to a rather slow
fall and winter. In their opin-
ions, the wind is blowing in
their direction and there is
no hurricane insight.
Business seems to be get-
ting back to normal and the
outlook for the county's
many service and entertain-
ment businesses suggest this
will be the year for record-
breaking sales and receipts.

REALTY &
MORTGAGE


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!
