School board


names principals


Conceptual plan approved


for Mossy Head park


By DOTTY NIST
More business plans are on


the way for the undeveloped,
county-owned land known as


GERALD AND PAT WALLENS have big plans for the
AMussy Head Indastr'.i-Pa.;k.,-which include 100 new jobs..-


Mossy Head Industrial Park.
On May 24, the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC)
granted conceptual approval
for a 100,000-square-foot
modular home manufactur-
ing plant on a 50-acre portion
of the property, with a "sis-
ter" facility for construction
of multifamily housing to fol-
low in the second phase of
development.
Gerald and Pat Wallens of
Higher Standard Realty will
be developing the businesses.
The first phase is to employ
100 people.
The Wallens' have been in
business for the past 10 years
Sin Santa Rosa Beach with the
acquisition, development and
marketing of real estate and
modular housing. The couple
owns 136 acres of land to the
west of the county's Mossy
Head Industrial Park prop-
erty.
Their plan includes an af-
fordable housing community
and a community center on
their property. Roads would
be constructed at the devel-
opers' expense on the 50
acres to be donated by the
county and would come un-
der county ownership once
developed.
Business,? are planned for


the area adjacent to 1-10 at
the Mossy Head exchange.
Terry Anderson, an engineer
representing the Wallens' re-
alty company, said they are
flexible with regard to which
side of the highway their de-
velopment would take place.
Anderson said it is their de-
sire not to conflict with other
projects planned for the in-
dustrial park.
Last month, the commis-
sioners agreed to move for-
ward with a recreation ve-
hicle sales, storage and ser-
vice business at the indus-
trial park, as proposed by
Roger McCombs .
"I wholeheartedly support
this project," District 3 Com-
missioner Larry Jones said of
the Higher Standard pro-
posal.
Jones and Walton County
Administrator Ronnie Bell
have been involved in discus-
sions with the Wallens' on
their project over a period of
a number of months.
A motion to approve the
conceptual plan for the pro-
posal was approved unani-
mously.
According to Higher
Standard's time schedule,
the first factory will be com-
pleted between December
2005 and February 2006.


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County School
Board held two meetings in
the last week to discuss vari-
ous items at the end of the
school year.
The board voted to change
the name of Van R. Butler
School to Emerald Coast
Middle School. Athletically,
the school will use Stingrays
as the official mascot/nick-
name.
The board also filled the
three remaining open princi-
pal slots. Michael Anderson,
who served as principal at
Ponce de Leon High School
from 1993-96, was chosen to
take over at Paxton High
School. Tammy Smith was
selected to take over as prin-
cipal at Butler Elementary
and Beth Tucker was pro-
moted to take over at Free-
port Middle School.
Trips were approved for
South Walton and Freeport
high schools to attend bas-


ketball camp in Troy this
summer as well as the South
Walton cheerleaders to at-
tend the University of Cen-
tral Florida's cheerleading
camp.
The board also renewed its
cooperative agreement with
Walton Academy to provide
educational alternative pro-
grams at the Department of
Juvenile Justice residential
commitment facility in De-
Funiak Springs for the 2005-
06 fiscal year.

The board was also seeking
bidders for the re-roofing
project of the existing build-
ing at Bay Elementary
School, but received no bids
as most contractors are al-
ready working on projects or
suffering from a slow deliv-
ery of roofing supplies.
The next scheduled meet-
ing of the Walton County
School Board will be on Mon-
day, June 6, at 6 p.m.

Wee Care Park


beautification


Barbara Allen author of
The Holistic Garden and a
member of the DeFuniak
Springs Garden Club is help-
ing beautify the Wee Care
Children's Park in DeFuniak
Springs.
Allen, with the help of in-
mates from the Walton Cor-
rectional Institute is plant-
ing vegetation native to Wal-
ton County in attractive gar-
dens around the park's teen
center. Allen believe. these
native plants will benefit the
area's citizens as well as the
environment. She says,
"Once a native plant is estab-
lished it doesn't need us to
water or fertilize it or care for
it in any way if we choose not
to, so it will save us time and
effort and money." She also
points out that native plants
will retain their color,
throughout the year with
minimal maintenance.
Allen is also careful to em-
phasize the project's impor-
tance to the environment,


"We will be replacing lost
food and habitat for native
wildlife of all kinds by plant-
ing those plants they depend
on in the wild." She hopes the
project will help everyone
recognize the many benefits
of planting native vegetation.
Walton County Parks and
Recreation Director Brad
Alford says the project will be
completed in several phases.
The Parks and Recreation
crew has already planted
palm trees and installed ir-
rigation in the Wee Care
Park. When completed citi-
zens using the park will have
the opportunity to learn;
about native plants and ani-
mals in our area, says Alford.

Alford is grateful for the
help of Warden Kirkland and
Officer J. D. Cooper of the
Walton Correctional Insti-
tute and the DeFuniak
Springs Garden Club for
their assistance with the
project.

Caney Creek Baptist


Church in land dispute


with cemetery association


By BRUCE COLLIER
A series of property deeds
dating back to the 1930s has
led to a property dispute, and
an imminent legal action,
between a-church and a
cemetery care association.
Caney Creek Baptist
Church, located north of De-
Funiak Springs on S.R. 2
West, has retained an attor-
ney in an attempt to quiet
title to the cemetery adjoin-
ing the church.
Following the deeds back
to 1932, the property in dis-
pute appears to have been
owned first by Jackson Lum-
ber Company. Jackson Lum-
ber deeded the property, 2.4
acres, to trustees of the
Methodist Episcopal Church
of Caney Creek.
In a second deed, dated
1939, the Methodist Church
conveys the identically de-
scribed 2.4 acres of property
to the trustees of the Mission-
ary Baptist Church of Caney
Creek.
A third deed, dated 1966,
conveys 2.4 acres, "more or
less," from "Agnes A. Gill, a
Widow," to trustees of the
Caney Creek Baptist
Church. The description con-
tained in the 1966 deed does
not exactly track the detailed


language of the two previous
deeds, but refers to the same
section, township, and range
contained in those deeds.
In 2001, another deed ap-
pears, with "Royce A. Gill, by
his attorney-in-fact, Lois
Mae Gill and Lois Mae Gill
husband and wife," as grant-
ors, and "Robby Edward Gill"
as grantee.
This deed conveys property
in the same section, town-
ship, and parcel previously
described, but with an excep-
tion for the "2.4 acres, more
or less," described in the 1966
deed from Agnes A. Gill.
Such exceptions operate to
exclude the described prop-
erty from the grant.
In August of 2004, Robbie
Edward Gill appears as
grantor, granting property to
"Gill Family Cemetary As-
sociation, Inc." The Gill Fani-
ily Cemetary Association
had filed as a non-profit cor-
poration with the state of
Florida in June of 2004.
The property description
in the 2004 deed tracks the
language of the original deed
from Jackson Lumber, but
makes reference to Caney
Creek Church property.
In a "to whom it may con-
cern" letter, dated September


10,2004, the Gill Family
Cemetary Association as-
serted that the cemetery at
Caney Creek was "privately
owned, rather than owned
by Caney Creek Baptist
Church."
Gill Family Cemetary As-
sociation subsequently filed
public notice in this newspa-
per that the cemetery "for-
merly known as the 'Caney
Creek or Jackson Still'
cemetery was assigned to
the Gill Family Cemetary
Association, Inc."
Caney Creek Baptist
Church ordered a survey of
the property in dispute,
which was completed in De-
cember of 2004.
According to members of
Caney Creek Baptist
Church, the cemetery asso-
ciation placed chains and
locks on the cemetery gates.
In January of 2005, Attor-
ney W. Flemming Ward, rep-
resenting Caney Creek Bap-
tist Church, sent a copy of
the survey to Gill Family
Cemetary Association, de-
manding removal of the signs
and locks posted at the
cemetery gates.
On or around February
19, 2005, the chains and
locks were removed without


LOCKED GATES AND NOTICE AT CANEY CREEK CEMETERY, fall of 2004.


the association's permission.
The association billed Caney
Creek Baptist Church for
"unauthorized work."
Since then, church mem-
bers say that more signs
have been posted, locks
placed, and church members
prevented from entering the
cemetery.
Flemming Ward declined
to comment in detail on the
dispute, but confirmed that
a title search was being done,
and that a legal action of
some kind would be filed.
"Possibly an action to quiet'
title, or for a declaratory
judgment. It depends on the
title search."
A title search will reveal
all deeds filed in the chain of
title on the property, along
with any other matters or
legal descriptions filed per-
taining to the property.
ClaytonAdkinson is acting
as attorney for Gill Family
Cemetary Association. At
press time, he was not avail-
able for comment.
Danny Glidewell, presi-
dent of Gill Family Cemetary
Assoctatiqn, was also not
available for comment.

Spring cleaning from the editor's desk


By RON KELLEY
Although it is technically still spring, anyone who has
stepped outside at lunchtime during the last few weeks
knows that, in Walton County, summer is already here.
However, since it is still spring in some parts of the world,
I thought I'd take this opportunity to clear several things
off my desk.
First, a thank-you for all the nice comments about our
newest and most visible change color photographs on all
our front pages! We are all extremely pleased about our lat-
est and greatest improvement and think that it really makes
the newspaper look top-notch.
I think it's one of the most important changes in our 117-
year history and allows me to state, without fear of contra-
diction, that the Herald-Breeze may now be the best weekly
newspaper in Florida.:
Speaking of our history, I've been spending some time in
the Walton County Courthouse looking through our news-
paper archives, which date back only as far as 1910. I find
those old issues fascinating and could easily spend weeks
pouring through the pages of history.
We're planning a big feature next week with lots of pic-
tures on the history of the Herald-Breeze, so I won't go into
too much detail, but the thing that struck me is that, in
many ways, we're still concerned about the same things as
our grandfathers and many of the announcements were
eerily similar to those we see today.
For instance,'I read about Chautauqua Assembly programs
in the early 1900s and it was noted that some were more
popular and well-attended than others just like today.
Palmer College, which was here in DeFuniak Springs, an-
nounced its fall term just like OWC does today.
The county commissioners still got into hot water with
the citizens in one case, they either forgot or refused to
call a local election.
Sheriff Gatlin was calling for cooperation between his of-
fice and other county officials hmmm, that sounds famil-
iar, too. I saw where Judge Wells had been named to the
circuit court that was Clyde, not Kelvin.
I saw religious announcements from various local
churches, full-page advertisements for grocery stores, movie

Of course, some things were different. In the earliest days,
there were advertisements on the front page, along with
some national news and there were at least two serial nov-

weekly installments kept readers enthralled. A year's sub-
scription was $1.

Editor,
The family of William Howard (Butch) Laird would like
to express grateful appreciation to the Chautauqua Reha-
bilitation and Nursing Center for the care, compassion, at-
tention and love extended to Butch over the course of his
long illness.
He was very comfortable and content with his surround-
ings during his final days, and that means a great deal to
his family.
The administrative staff, the nursing staff, the therapists,
dietary, and maintenance staff all performed their jobs with
professionalism and dedication, and we could not be any
more satisfied with the services and treatment he received.
DeFuniak Springs is indeed fortunate to have a facility
staffed with professionals such as those at the Center.

Drive around the Lakeyard. I join with others in applaud-
ing the efforts of the two ladies that took it upon themselves
to remind us all of the continuing war in Iraq and of the
supreme sacrifices that our nation's best young men and
women are still making.
In fact, I spoke to a'Freeport man today who wants to line
the causeway on both sides of the Clyde Wells Bridge over
Choctawhatchee Bay with 1,600 American flags in honor of
our fallen heroes in Iraq. That's a big task to attempt on a
state highway with only a few days left before Memorial
Day, but even if he's not successful, it's a worthy idea and
further proof that people in Walton County have not forgot-
ten those who are serving and those who have given their
lives.

Although I can still hear the echoes of the thundering herd
of Walton County department heads and administrative staff
members who have fled their county jobs in search of greener,
fairer pastures, recently we have also seen notices of the
departure of two other high-profile administrators, Pam
Tedesco and Mike Standley.

Tedesco is leaving as director of the local chamber of com-
merce and Standley is leaving his position as city manager
for the city of DeFuniak Springs. He is joining Regional
.Utilities as their operations manager and, although she has
not announced her next job, I expect Pam's announcement
to come soon after her last day at the chamber.
Both have had a major impact on the community and we
wish them well in their future endeavors.

Hurricane season has arrived again. Although Walton
County recovered from last year's parade of storms, some
places are still clearing away the rubble and can ill-afford
to take the brunt of another hurricane.
A recent AP poll showed that Panhandle residents are the
least prepared for hurricane season. That disappoints me. I
am not known as a gambling man, but I know enough about
the odds to know that you can't bet against the house in-
definitely. Eventually, you'll roll snake-eyes and the house
will win again and these stakes are winner-take-all.
Do yourselves and your family a favor. Take advantage of
Governor Bush's tax-free holiday on hurricane supplies.
Stack your supplies in the garage or shed, somewhere out
of the way. That way, if you need it (and in Florida, you will
eventually need it), you won't have to climb over thousands
of your neighbors who are racing down the store aisles, buy-
ing everything they can reach, leaving the shelves bare for
you andthe rest of those I'll-just-wait-until-the-last-tiitrte
:'shoppeistwh6hope everything will still be there when they
want it, at prices they can still afford. .*** -
There that takes care of my desktop. Clear off your desk
and have a great spring summer!

LETTER TOTHE E DIT'O


Editor,
Now that another hurricane season is upon us, I would
like to make a few observations concerning last season.
I live south of SR 20, north of the bay. During the past 50
years, we have been hit by three tornados, several hurri-
canes and numerous thunderstorms. After each of those
events (we never considered them "disasters" or "emergen-
cies"), we would "clean up."
As soon as the wind and rain abated, we would select one
or more open areas, rake up around them, drag out a hose
and start a "fire pile." Each evening after work, on Satur-
day and Sunday or whenever we found time, we would "punk
up" the fire pile and add more downfall to it. After a few
days or weeks, we would have the place cleaned up and the
down fall would be converted to carbon dioxide, water, and
a few minerals, just as would have eventually occurred by
natural decay. Incidentally, this cost the taxpayers exactly
nothing.
Not so this past year however. It seems we are now blessed
with an elected and non-elected bureaucracy of "disaster
relief", "emergency management", "first responders" and
other "helpers". This cadre decreed that we could not burn
our trash as we had always done. It had to be picked up!
Now instead of dragging the stuff to my fire pile I had to
drag it to someplace accessible to my truck, load it on the
uruck, haul it to the highway and unload it. This, I figure is
about three times the manual labor as burning it (I had 24
truck loads).
But wait! It's not over. Now the bureaucrats get to do what
they do best. Spend money! They now get to hire people
with trucks, trailers, front-end loaders, backhoes, etc., to
pick up this trash and haul it to a landfill. Now they get to
spend more money to crush and bury the stuff. Eventually
they will get to spend more money to buy more land for
landfills.
No doubt some of our more recent arrivals from the more
socialistic parts of our nation appreciate all of this "free"
service. I, and most of my friends, do not.
Next time, please leave us alone. Do not tell us how to
mind our own business.

Dale M. Davis
Freeport, FL




Editor,
Please permit me to use this means to thank the person or
persons who caused the renewed show of yellow ribbons
around town. Seeing all the new ribbons gave me a wake-
up call.
When our troops first became involved in Iraq, I, like many
others, put a big yellow bow on our biggest oak tree out
front to let them know that our hearts and prayers would
be with them until they were safly home again. Then as
the conflict drug on, and on our ribbons became weather
worn and faded and, apparently, so did my pledge of faith-
ful support to out troops over there. Well, I now have a big,
bright, new, yellow ribbon on that oak tree out front.
Thanks, who ever you are.

Editor:
Walton High School algebra students are still raving about
the Brave Bucks Auction that you helped to sponsor. Over
one hundred students bid on baseball caps, tee shirts, gift
certificates, savings bonds, hair products, games, an airplane
ride over DeFuniak Springs and many, many more items.
Local auctioneer, Gordon Porter, led the bidding process.
Students were assigned bidding numbers and given a Brave
Bucks balance. During the bidding they had to use account-
ing skills to decide which items they could afford. Students
and staff enjoyed the process. Auctions are fun math!
Algebra I teachers under the guidance of Mrs. Shirley Fike
developed this awards activity for students. The money was
distributed daily for attendance, good behavior, and achieve-
ment. Students strived to obtain the "bucks" which were
deposited biweekly into their savings account. Accounting
skills were incorporated into the activity during the school
year and during the bidding process. Plans are underway to
enhance and improve the program for next year.
Thank you so much, Walton County businesses, for do-
nating items throughout the school year. These businesses
and individuals include: Stage, Dollar General, AmSouth
Bank, Dewayne Youngblood, Winn Dixie, Pig Daddy's
Barbeque, Brighthouse Cable, Walton High School, Factory
Connection, Fisher's Pharmacy, Dominoes, The Book Store,
Sandra's Hair Salon, Hobby Shop, Rooms & More Furni-
ture, Network Video, Army Aviation Federal Credit Union,
Rita's This and That, Walton County Teachers Federal Credit
Union, McLean's Florist, Heavenly Designs Florist & Gifts,
Tim Rockman and Gordon Porter. Our students say thank
you.
Walton High students and faculty appreciates the contin-
ued support we receive from our local businesses.
Sincerely,
Shirley Fike, Lowana Goyer, Wendy Powell, Beverly Shaw
W.H.S. algebra teachers

Editor,
As I drove'to work a few weeks back I began noticing yel-
low ribbons here and there around the lake yard, until one
Sunday morning it seemed like an explosion of bright beau-
tiful yellow ribbons had appeared overnight adorning doz-
ens of trees around the entire lakeyard. It was easy to see
whomever had. done this took great care to place them at
approximately the same heights and spared no expense to
make the bows big and full.
I thought to myself, what wonderful, thoughtful people to
take the time to do this, I wondered which one of the many
civic organizations in town had done this wonderful thing.
Surely it must have taken many hands to make and hang
all these ribbons. Later that day I found out that it was not
any large group or organization at all, rather two wonder-
ful, local ladies, Paulette Morrison and Dale Yount.
Although I have known these ladies and have had the
pleasure of calling them my friends, I had no.idea they had
taken on this enormous project by themselves. Dale's son,
'Britian, was recently called to duty in Iraq and she felt she
needed to do something not only to show support f.' "h -r
Sown son until he comes home, but also for all sons and daugh-
ters who have been called to duty. With the help of her neigh-
bor and friend, Paulette, they have been making and hang-
ing bows for several weeks now. Each time I drive to work
and see the bows, it reminds me of the sacrifices our friends
and families are making every day and how fortunate we.
are to have loving, caring and thoughtful friends and neigh-
bors right here at home who unselfishly take the time and
effort to honor our sons and daughters.
I want to thank Dale and Paulette for all their hard work
and let them know that this neighbor really appreciates what
they are doing. Thanks, ladies, for reminding us to remem-
ber and honor our military.

Editor,
An American flag once held high and proud, came to rest
.Nov. 1, 2001. As a soldier passed from out midst, a flag was
laid across his chest. His widow's heart was heavy with his
passing. As he was played to rest, eight young soldiers so
proudly stood and folded his flag with steady hands. They
came before her and placed the flag in her hands.
Some years have passed since his passing, his flag has
been in his widow's home. To honor his services Barbara
Trant, form Bonifay, FL has donated James Herbert Powell's
flag to Blue Creek Veterans Memorial Park in Ponce de Leon,
FL. We proudly fly it to honor him and all veterans'.
Come by the veterans park and spend some time looking
around.

Two killed in

motorcycle accident


By BRUCE COLLIER
Two people, both residents
of Daleville, Alabama, were
killed in a motorcycle acci-
dent that took place on May
22 in Walton County.
Florida Highway Patrol
investigating trooper Rodney
C. Carlan reported that a
motorcycle was traveling
east on CR-3280, some 500
feet west of Tubbs Lane. The
motorcycle was reportedly
traveling at a high rate of
speed.
Operating the motorcycle
was Ralf Jose Esquibel, 52,
of Daleville, Alabama. The


(850) 892-2134


passenger was Karla N.
Flaherty, 45, also of Daleville.

- According to the report, the
motorcycle left the road on a
curve, traveling south onto
the shoulder and into a
wooded area.
The motorcycle then struck
a tree. Esquibel and Flaherty
were thrown from the motor-
cycle. Both were pronounced
dead at the scene.
Neither of the riders was
wearing a helmet or seatbelt.
The report states that the ac-

cident may have been drug-
or alcohol-related.

Post Office cautions summer drivers


By RICKY STRICKLAND
DEFUNIAK SPRINGS POSTMASTER
Along with providing outstanding service to our custom-
ers, the U.S. Postal Service counts safety as its top priority.
Our letter carriers are professionally trained to be cautious
and to drive with care and attention and their excellent
safety record as a group attests to their commitment to safe
driving.
However, as summer approaches, our carriers and all
drivers need to be extra careful because children are out
of school and at play in neighborhoods all over our commu-
nity.
Many children find one of the highlights of a summer day
is seeing the letter carrier arrive with the mail. However,
we at the DeFuniak Springs Post Office would like to ask
all parents' help to keep their children and our delivery of
the mail safe, because a child who approaches a mail truck
may not always he, een.by .the driver. .
If a child slips under a vehicle, severe injuries or even
death can result. Unfortunately in a Panhandle community
not far from us, a young child died of injuries suffered in an

accident involving a Postal vehicle, so we are especially
mindful of just how devastating such an accident can be.
With summer near, I urge all parents: Tell your children
not to play on or near postal vehicles including those parked
while the letter carrier is delivering mail. If you have
curbside mail delivery, make sure your children wait until
the carrier has driven away before they go to retrieve the
mail.
Warn your children of the dangers of riding bicycles, skate-
boards or scooters in traffic or anywhere around moving or
parked vehicles.
I would also ask everyone to avoid parking vehicles or
placing obstructions in front of mailboxes, as they can block
our driver's view of children who might be playing in the
area.
While postal drivers have received extensive training and
are keenly aware of the need to be cautious and watchful
for children on their routes. they need parents' coopera-
tion.
Working together, we can all keep our children safe this
summer and for years to come.


administrator and discus-
sions of how agencies could
solve their enterprise content
challenges.
Peters opened his introduc-
tion with work experiences at
the Florida Supreme Court
and how the Court managed
several high profile situa-
tions, such as 2000 election.
Peters continued with per-
sonal examples around the
country from the National
Center for State Courts. Pe-
ters discussed the need for
business process improve-
ment and standards at the
local, state, and federal lev-
els to created a clear line of
integration with cooperative
interoperability.


Attendees at the luncheon
included members from Sen-

DeFuniak Springs and the Chautauqua Hall of Brotherhood


By ROY MCLEOD
Over the last two three
years, several newspaper ar-
ticles have been published on
the efforts of The
Chautauqua Hall of Brother-
hood Foundation, Inc. to
have the auditorium portion
'. of the Chautauqua Hall of
Brotherhood (CHOB) re-
stored. I wonder how many
residents, past or present,
know how a facility of this
size came to be built in a
town of 1,100. Maybe it was
because of the beautiful
round lake or perhaps a real
estate developer saw it and
decided, "This would be great
place for a waterfront resort."
Then again, maybe it was
because of the railroad.
We know that the railroad
is responsible for founding
DeFuniak Springs, as they
already had a station here in
1884. But, does that mean
the railroad is the reason the
Hall of Brotherhood was
built here? It could...but it
isn't.
In my opinion, one man is
responsible for the Hall of
Brotherhood; that man is
Wallace Bruce and here is the
story of the Chautauqua Hall
of Brotherhood:
The Chautauqua Hall of
Brotherhood takes its name
from the early Chautauqua
Movement that was estab-
lished by the Florida legisla-
ture and incorporated as The
Florida ChautauquaAssocia-
tion. This was as a result of
the Chautauqua Movement
of New York selecting
DeFuniak Springs as the site
for their winter assembly.
Early meetings were held in
a tent and later a large tab-
ernacle.
In 1893, the Honorable
Wallace Bruce, of Brooklyn,
on his way from his winter
home in De Funiak Springs,
Florida where he was presi-
dent of The Florida
Chautauqua, to deliver an
address for the St. Andrews
,Society, of Milwaukee, in an,
"interview with the Cincin-
Inati Inquirer, said: My
heart is set on the erection of
a Hall of Brotherhood, a
Chautauqua building, at De-
Funiak Springs, Florida for


the study of history, litera-
ture and art, with wings and
domes resembling in minia-
ture the Capitol at Washing-
ton.
"The columns on the first
floor will represent the law-
makers of the world from
Moses, Lycurgus and Solon to
Lord Chatham and Burke;
the columns on the second
floor will represent American
statesmen, great Generals of
the Blue and Gray, and lead-
ers of literature, science, and
religious thought every-
where, he said."
The Hall will be located at
DeFuniak Springs, in a beau-
tiful park of two hundred
acres on the highest point in
the state of florida, fronting
a lake 80- feet deep, exactly
one mile in circumference
and a complete circle.
"The corner stone has been
laid with impressive cer-
emony by the late General
John B. Gordon. The 26 col-
umns on the outside of the
building will represent the
Presidents of the United
States.
"Already many noted per-
sons have contributed col-
umns to be dedicated to
Alexander Hamilton, Gen-
eral Nathaniel Green, Ethan
Allen, Andrew Jackson, Gen-
eral Francis Marion, Ben-
jamin Franklin, General
George Rogers Clark, Daniel
Boone, Priscilla Alden,
Abraham Lincoln, Robert
Fulton, Robert Burns, Sir
Walter Scott, George
Stephenson, John Milton,
Benjamin Harrison, Sir Wil-
liam Wallace, John Daven-
port, Matthew Vassar and
John Knox."
The article further states
"It will be remembered that
Mr. Bruce raised the statue
of Lincoln at Edinburgh,
Scotland, by securing sub-
scriptions of American citi-
zens of $100 each, which was
dedicated at the close of his
Consulship at Edinburgh in
1893, the only.statute of Lin-
coln outside of the United
States. Cincinnati In-.
quirer."
The impressive ceremony
Bruce alluded to was the lay-
ing of the cornerstone for the


magnificent Chautauqua
Hall of Brotherhood. On that
particular occasion he said
the following, before intro-
ducing General John Gordon.
"Ladies and gentlemen -
Beside the bright waters of
our beautiful lake, illumined
by the rich glow of a western
Florida sunset, we are as-
sembled, representatives of
every state in the Union, to
lay the corner-stone of a Hall
of Brotherhood, suggesting in
architectural design the
grace and beauty of our na-
tional capitol, and affording
a much needed shelter for
schools in many branches of
science and literature con-
nected with our Chautauqua
development.
"No place could have been
selected more appropriate for
the consummation of this
crowning idea of the nine-
teenth century, and'no man
in all our land chosen, better
fitted for laying the corner-
stone of this structure than
the'orator who charms all
hearts by his eloquence and
patriotism. I have the honor
of introducing to you General
John Be Gordon."
The following is the dedi-
cation speech given by Gen-
eral Gordon.
"Friends and fellow citi-
zens, speech would be useless
and ill- timed here. No ora-
tor, however gifted, could ut-
ter words, however eloquent
or forceful, that would add to
the scope and meaning of the
name which the temple to be
erected on this spot is to bear.
The "Hall of Brotherhood"
tells the whole story. Every
beam and timber, each brick
and stone that shall complete
its structure, from this sup-
porting corner-stone now laid
to its finished turret, will
speak to coming generations
of sentiment which sug-
gested it. American brother-
hood, a reunited country, on
which depends not only the
life and perpetuity of the Re-
public, but the welfare of uni-
versal humanity, eiathe glo-
*y .u 's


rious realities which this
Hall is to represent.
In the name, therefore, of
every state of this Union, and
of our priceless freedom, in-
voking heaven's blessing
upon it, I dedicate this spot
where the Hall of Brother-
hood is to stand a holy invo-
cation to the everlasting fra-
ternity of the American
people."
Wallace Bruce saw his vi-
sion come true in 1909 with
the completion of a facility
that would seat 4,000 people.
In an article written by
Candice Leslie, she said that
"for 36 years, the Winter
Chautauqua entertained and
educated thousands of par-
ticipants, and the town
spawned The Florida Educa-
tion Association."
In my opinion the
Chautauqua Hall of Brother-
hood, with the help of the
Chautauqua Movement, is
responsible for much, if not


most, of the growth of
DeFuniak Springs from the
late 1800s to 1930s.
From 1940 until 1956, the
Hall of Brotherhood was "the
heartbeat of Walton County."
It was the only facility that
could accommodate high
school basketball, proms,
Halloween carnivals, gradu-
ations, dances, Grand Ole
Opry shows, boxing, wres-
tling, gospel sings, and stage
shows, and more.
Not only is the Hall of
Brotherhood the icon for De-
Funiak Springs, it is a his-
torical monument to our an-
cestors. This icon is on the
city of De Funiak Springs city
flag and letterhead, it is on
the Chamber of Commerce
correspondences and web-
site, the DeFuniak Herald
uses it on their masthead, the
DeFuniak Springs Rotary
Club has it on their banner
and website, and there are
others that use it for promo-

tional purposes.
Combined with Chau-
tauqua Movement and
memories of events held in
the auditorium, the Hall of
Brotherhood in the 30s, 40s
and 50s, the site became a
historic site without prece-
dence. It is relevant as a
place of culture and hope for
brotherhood among all
people.
It is as relevant today as
it was in 1893 when General
Gordon dedicated the corner
stone.
We are historic DeFuniak
Springs, it is absolutely im-
perative that the Hall of
Brotherhood be restored. Let
us use our passion for pres-
ervation and restoration in
DeFuniak Springs and re-
store this majestic Hall.

Grit & Grace announces

director, title for 2005


By BRUCE COLLIER
Walton County folklife
drama Grit & Grace has se-
cured a director and a title for
this fall's production.
Grit & Grace 2005: Old
Friends Remembered, will be
directed by Jeremiah
Campbell. Campbell has
acted and sung in previous
productions, and calls him-
self "a foot soldier" in the an-
nual play.
"We had a general audition
in mid-May," said Campbell,
"and a lot of the regulars
came." Campbell intends to
hold a second audition in late
summer, probably after.
school resumes. He hopes to
fill out the cast, and possibly
to enlist some newcomers as
well.
"I'm going to go to
churches, schools, anywhere
I can to drum up support."
This year's script will be
written by Armand Coutu, a
teacher and costume designer
in Okaloosa Walton College's
theatre department. Coutu
has written several Grit &
Grace scripts.
Old Friends Remembered
will feature excerpts from
previous years' scripts, par-
ticularly ones that were au-
dience favorites. Coutu is
putting them together, and
writing a through line to
provide story continuity.
Campbell says the script is
still in progress.
As before, the play will fea-
ture stories, songs, and mu-
sical pieces, all on the subject
of ordinary and extraordi-
nary life in Walton County.
"This is my directing de-
but," says Campbell. He is
confident that his experience
performing in the show, and
his acquaintance with the
company, will be helpful to
him.
"I think I have a good idea
of what will work and what
won't," he says. "I know the
cast will give me a lot of sup-


port."
For information on audi-
tions, show dates, and tick-
ets, call Grit & Grace at 835-

Seagrove resident attending WW II paratrooper reunion


BY TIANA LARSEN
Seagrove Beach resident
and WW II veteran para-
trooper Roy Gates is on his
way to Europe, courtesy of
SJeep (Daimler Chrysler,)
who is sponsoring a
European reunion of Easy
Company, also known as the
Band of Brothers.
E Company, 506th
Parachute Infantry
Regiment, 101st Airborne
Division, is well known for
its role in the war, but
Gates downplays his own
part. "I feel a little like I'm
backing up to the table," he
said, because he didn't
arrive in Europe until after
the famous Normandy inva-
sion of D-Day, June 6, 1944.
But it isn't over until it's
over, and Gates saw his
share of combat, most of it
ironically after VE-Day (Vi-
ctory in Europe, May 8,
1945.)
Gates graduated from
Texas A in January of 1943.
Having already been told he
was in the army, he and his
classmates attended school
year round in order to fin-
ish and join the war effort.
After Officer's Candidate.
.School and maneuvers in
Tennessee, 2nd Lt. Gates
was attracted by the extra
pay offered paratroopers, so
he went to jump school at
Ft. Benning, and joined up
with Easy Company at
Mourmelon, France.
Born in New York City,
Gates had an interesting
childhood. His. father
started Marineland near St.
Augustine, Florida, and


Gates spent time
in various board- q ,
ing schools, includ- il
ing one in France, i
where he learned
to speak French, a
useful skill when
he found himself
there during
wartime.
After Mourmelon,
Gates wound up at
Berchtesgaden, .
also known as "4:'
Eagle's Nest,
Hitler's mountain-
top retreat in the
German Alps. By ..
that time, Hitler .:-
was gone, hiding .'
out in the bunker
where he eventu- ,-
ally committed
suicide.

Expecting to be
sent to the South Sea
Pacific, where the Easy
war did not end Com
atromic knoo
until the atomic knou
the i
bombs were Stev
dropped on Japan .book
in August of 1945,
Gates and his com-
pany worked their
way through Germany to
Austria as the war in
Europe was winding down.
"Mopping. up" was a good,
way of putting it, he said.
Although Gates says that,
he didn't see the toughest of
times, what he saw was
tough enough, as they
chased fleeing German sol-
diers, taking prisoners and
liberating Nazi death
camps as they went. The
Germans had fled, Gates


grove Beach resident Roy Gates is on his way to Europe for
y Company (Band of Brothers) Reunion. The paratroopers

recalled, leaving the concen-
tration camps locked. "I
cannot believe how any of
those people survived," he
said. That is how Gates
came to see more combat
after the war in Europe was
supposed to be officially
over, during mountain
patrols in Austria. search-
ing for Hitler's SS officers
who were hiding out there.
In January, 1946, Gates
returned to New York City


on the Queen Mary, pressed
into service to transport sol-
diers home. There was a big
parade when the ship
arrived, he remembered.
When asked if he left the
military after that, "Oh,
gosh, yes," he said,
Having lived in New
York, Florida, Texas, and
California, Gates was pass-
ing through south Walton in
a little motor home in 1991.
He stopped at what is now

Slowed by
reject by
red in the


the Topsail
Hill RV Park,
which was pri-
vately owned
by the Moore
family.
When the
park was sold
to the state,
Gates moved
over to the
Seagrove RV
Park, where
he lived until
that park was
sold for
development.
Gates stays
now with his
friends, Judge
Tom McGee
and his wife,
Karen, who,
he says, "re-
scued" him
after the sec-
ond rv park
closed. The
McGee's are
going to
Europe with


Gates, where
the group will
visit France,
Belgium and Holland.

Most of the places on the
itinerary are significant
wartime locations, including
the D-Day landing sites in
Normandy, and several
cemeteries where
Americans who died in the
war are buried. A wreath
laying will take place at the
Colleville cemetery.
(Although many
Americans associate


Memorial Day with the
start of summer, it was
originally called Decoration
Day, a day of remembrance
for those who have died in
the service of their country.
There are many stories as
to its actual beginnings,
with over two dozen cities
and towns laying claim to
being the birthplace of
Memorial Day, however
there is also evidence that
organized women's groups
in the South were decorat-
ing graves before the end of
the Civil War. Another
source claims that two
years after the Civil War, it
was southern women in
Columbus, Mississippi who
decorated the graves of both
Confederate and Union
men.)

At Bostogne, Belgium,
where a famous battle took
place near the end of the
war, a monument to Easy
Company will be dedicated
in a special ceremony.
Gates is not sure how
many survivors of Easy
Company will attend. At a
reunion held in this country
last year, only about 20
came, he said. But at
eighty-three years young,
Gates is looking forward to
two weeks of reliving his-
tory and visiting a Europe
that is much different now
than when he lived there as
a young boy and then
returned to fight for his
country as a young para-
trooper with his 'band of
brothers.'

hosts seminar
on eye disease

Sacr.ed Heart Hospital on
the Emierald Coast and Dr.
Maggi) Shuler, an ophthal-
mologist, are teaming up to
present a free seminar on
What's New in Age-Related
Macular Degeneration, a de-
bilitating eye disease that is
the leading cause of blind-
ness in Americans age 55 and
older.
The seminar will be held
Wednesday, June 1, at 1 p.m.
in the Medical Office Build-
ing Conference Room at Sa-
cred Heart Hospital on the
Emerald Coast.
The wet form of macular
degeneration is caused by the
abnormal growth of fragile
blood vessels in the retina
that leak blood and cause
damage to the light-sensitive
photoreceptor cells.
Macugen, the new FDA ap-
proved drug, works by block-
ing vascular endothelial
growth factor (VEGF), a pro-
tein that promotes blood ves-
sel growth.
"Exciting clinical studies
are currently recruiting pa-
tiefts for investigational
drugs, and a bold surgical
technique for wet macular
degeneration "rs -n ,o being
offered," explainL Dr. Shuler,
a member of Sacred Heart
medical staff.
Sacred Heart Hospital on
the Emerald Coast is a 50-
bed community hospital lo-
cated in Walton County along
Hwy. 98 at Mack Bayou
Road.

Sacred Heart or to register

The only escape

from boredom's path

one needs transportation,
please contact Brother Bob at
834-3814 by Saturday, May

Beechgrove

Church of God

homecoming
The Beechgrove Church of
God will be having homecom-
ing on Sunday, May 29.
Rev. Larry Collins will be
bringing the morning mes-
sage. After the morning ser-
vice a covered dish lunch will
be served.
The Jeff Cain Family will
begin singing at 2 p.m.
The church is located 6
miles south of Ponce de Leon.
Everyone is invited to come
and bring a covered dish.


In the gift of many persons
there is boredom. They try all
things to give them satisfac-
tion, and they find nothing to
help. We can only escape
boredom if we know Jesus
Christ as Savior, and have a
growing experience with
Him. He said in John 10:10,
"I am come that they might
have life, and that they might
have it more abundantly."
Without faith in Christ, bore-
dom is sure to come.
Growth in Christ leads to
abundant life. "Abundantly"
is a rich adverb. It is over-
flowing compensation for ef-
fort. Jesus' effort for us over-
flows for our benefit through
faith in Him. The only escape
from boredom's path is
growth in Christ. Only Christ
can make life more abun-
dant.
Growth in Christ will bring


forth a song in the soul. It
will drive away the discord of
life and leave new harmony
in its place. Remember the
state of Paul and Silas who
were thrown into a
Philippian jail (Acts 16:12,
14-40). The gloom and de-
spondency of the time was
driven away because of their
growth in Christ. There was
a song in their souls.
Growth in Christ will pro-
duce a radiance of personal-
ity. One of the great compli-
ments Jesus paid His follow-
ers was, "Ye are the light of
the world" (Matthew 5:14).
We are to be shining lights in
a world of darkness.
Some find themselves wan-
dering on boredom's path.
But life can became a mag-
nificent obsession when
people come to know and love
the Author, Jesus Christ.

Walton sweeps football spring jamboree


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves swept
both of their county rivals in
a spring football jamboree
held at South Walton High
School as the Braves downed
.South Walton 14-3 and
Freeport 7-6 in a half of ac-
tion apiece. The three
schools, which were playing
each other in halves of action,
wrapped up spring practice
with the intra-county event.
Walton faced host South
Walton in the first half of ac-
tion as the Seahawks took the
early lead with a 55-yard
drive that resulted in a 27-
yard field goal byAlex Knight
that gave South Walton a 3-0
lead.
Walton responded on their
first possession as the Braves
went 65 yards for a touch-
down as Xavier Jackson
raced 51 yards for a score on
a sweep to give the Braves a
7-3.lead. Walton threatened
on their next possession only
to have a Josh Nettles pass
intercepted by the Seahawks
Quinn Sanders to stop the
drive. Walton cashed in on


their next possession, how-
ever, as a tipped ball thrown
by Xavier Jackson was
caught by tight end Corey
Schipper for a 23-yard touch-
down pass and a 14-3 lead.
The Seahawks were unable
to mount a threat on offense
after their opening posses-
sion. South Walton gained 61
yards on their first drive, but
was limited to three total
yards on their next three pos-
sessions as Walton ran out
the clock for a 14-3 win.
Walton took on the
Freeport Bulldogs in the sec-
ond half of play as each team
traded punts on their open-
ing possession. Walton
scored on their second drive
as Xavier Jackson got loose
again for a 43-yard touch-
down run and a 7-0 lead.
SFreeport struggled to move
the ball offensively, but did
put together one drive mid-
way thru the second quarter
that allowed the Bulldogs to
penetrate the Walton 10-yard
line. The Braves defense rose
to the occasion, though, as
they dropped the Bulldogs for


consecutive losses on running
plays before a fourth down
pass fell incomplete to turn
the ball over on downs.
Freeport caught a break
on Walton's next series as
Josh Nettles coughed up the
ball and Logan Caudill
picked up the pigskin and
raced in from 12 yards out to
cut the deficit to 7-6 with 5:46
left in the game. The Bull-
dogs decided to go for two but
were stopped short of the
endzone on the conversion
run.
Walton took their next pos-
session and marched down
the field, using the rest of the
clock up as they escaped with
a 7-6 win.
South Walton defeated
Freeport 14-7 in the final half
of play as the Seahawks raced
to a 14-0 lead only to have to
hold off a furious Freeport
rally in the final four minutes
of the half.
South Walton took the
opening possession in for a
score as Alex Knight raced iin
from 43 yards out to give the
Seahawks an early 6-0 lead.

After stopping Freeport, the
Seahawks scored again as
George Norris ran in from 9
yards out for a touchdown
and 'Dexter Barefield added
the 2-point conversion run to
give the Seahawks a 14-0
lead.
Freeport finally got some
offense going in the late sec-
ond quarter as Lloyd Ander-
son hooked up with wideout
Stephen Mabry on a 29-yard
scoring pass to cut the lead
to 14-7. After a Seahawk
fumble, the Bulldogs had a
chance to tie the game in the
final minute only to have
Zach Patronis intercept a des-
peration pass with 25 seconds
left that sealed the win for the
host team.
The three schools will work
on off-season conditioning
until August when they will

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MAY 26, 2005


By CHUCK HINSON
Braves sweep county
jamboree: The Walton
Braves showed versatility
both on the offense and the
defense as they rolled over
South Walton 14-3. It was a
much tighter game in the


second match-up as Walton
struggled to keep the point-
lead, but managed to finish
the game on top with a 7-6
victory over the Bulldogs.
South Walton did come-
back in the final game
against Freeport to win 14-7.


YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING! That was the expression
on this kid's face after the umpire called the pitch a strike. The
DFS Little League season ended this past Thursday, with
several teams getting ready for tournament play in the next
few weeks.

County football teams show promise


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves looked
solid in' their spring victory
over both South Walton and
Freeport. Walton had 43
players out for spring practice
with about six injuries that
kept the traveling roster to
37. Ronald Hicks sat out the
spring while recovering from
a shoulder injury and Jack-
son Fayne was limited by a
bad back.
Walton played four differ-
ent players at quarterback
during the jamboree and also
looked much better in kick-
ing extra points. The kicking
game played a part in all
three of Walton's losses last
year and improvement is a
must. The passing game is a
work in progress, but Alex
Smith and Corey Schipper
made some nice catches.
Xavier Jackson ran for 175
yards on 20 carries. Josh
Nettles added 60 rushing
yards. Corey Schipper had a
pair of sacks in the jamboree
and will enter 2005 with 14.5
sacks in his career at Walton.
South Walton had 37 play-
ers on the roster and showed
a lot of improvement under
new coach David Barron.
South Walton moved the ball


well on their opening posses-
sion against Walton, but
struggled thereafter. Quinn
Sanders completed 4-of-7
passes for 26 yards as the
Seahawks ran 41 rushing
plays to seven passes on the
night. South Walton did a de-
cent job of slowing Walton's
running attack and had a
couple of opportunities to
force turnovers from Walton,
only to see the Braves wind
up with the ball each time.
Against Freeport, the
Seahawks jumped to a quick
lead and were able to control
the clock for the victory. The
Seahawks have some size,
but little speed. Dexter
Barefield had 82 rushing
yards to lead the Seahawks
and is probably their most
versatile player.

Freeport is struggling
along the offensive line as
new players learn new roles.
Lloyd Anderson returns as
the top passer in the county
and will have a solid year if
his line can give him enough
time to throw. That was a
problem in the spring game
as he was harassed by Walton
and South Walton.
Anderson's play fakes in the
running game were superb


and could give the Bulldogs
an excellent chance to be suc-
cessful running the ball if
they can find a workhorse
back. The Bulldogs amassed
only 74 rushing yards on 33
carries behind the inexperi-
enced line. Stephen Mabry
and Anthony Stanley caught
all five of Anderson's comple-
tions and will be a threat if
Anderson gets time to find
them. The Bulldogs were
solid up the middle as Walton
was unable to pound them for
tough yards.
All three teams show po-
tential to give fans in Walton
County an exciting fall.
Freeport has six district op-
ponents and probably the
most questions entering the
fall. If the offensive line so-
lidifies, they will be in busi-
ness. South Walton can win
their district with victories
over Baker and Northview,
the only two district foes in
District 1, Class 2B. Walton
has Marianna and Pensacola
Catholic to contend with in
District 1, Class 2A. The
three schools will all face
each other this fall in regu-
lar season games, the first
time that has happened since
South Walton opened its
doors.

May is "Get America Moving"


National Physical Fitness Month


The Florida Department of
Health (DOH) is celebrating
National, Physical Fitness
and Sports Month as a des-
ignated Presidential Fitness
Partner in May to "Get
America Moving."
"Florida's landscape is
teeming with opportunities
to maintain a healthy and ac-
tive lifestyle every day," said
DOH Secretary John O.
Agwunobi, M.D., M.B.A.,
M.P.H. "There are many op-
tions available for 'fitness
such as visiting our parks
and beaches, enjoying our
many trails, and biking, skat-
ing, walking or jogging."
In 2003, only 41.2 percent
of Florida adults reported
that they met the recommen-
dation for moderate physical
activity. Only one-third of
Florida middle school stu-
dents participated in suffi-
cent moderate physical ac-


tivity, and approximately 22
percent of Florida high school
students participated in suf-
ficient moderate activity.

Physical inactivity is a ma-
jor risk factor for many pre-
ventable diseases and condi-
tions. Moderate daily physi-
cal activity can substantially
reduce the risk of developing
or dying from cardiovascular
disease, type 2 diabetes, and
certain cancers, such as co-
lon cancer. Daily physical
activity helps to lower blood
pressure and cholesterol,
symptoms of anxiety and de-
pression, prevents or slows
the process of osteoporosis,
and assists in the mainte-
nance of a healthy weight.
Additionally, regular
physical activity can help
people with arthritis manage
pain, increase mobility and
improve flexibility.


The following are some tips
for increasing physical activ-
ity: For children-take a
walk, a swim or bike ride; lis-
ten to music and dance; play
hopscotch, hide-and-seek or
freeze-tag; roller skate or
rollerblade.
For adults-take the stairs
whenever possible; go for a
walk or bike ride; start a gar-
den, do yard work or house-
hold chores; take a child to
the zoo, the museum or ex-
plore a local park.
The recommended mini-
mum daily amount of physi-
cal activity for adults is 30
minutes for five or more days
a week. For children and
adolescents, studies recom-
mend at least 60 minutes of
moderate daily physical ac-
tivity.

Golf course update and review


By PATRICK CASEY
In Florida, the spring is a
great time to get outdoors and
check out area golf courses
throughout the Panhandle.
With this in mind, I have vis-
ited several different venues
over the past two months in
search of competitive golfing
experiences while sizing up
the conditions of the various
courses. The following is a
partial list of the courses I
have visited and my take on
the experience.
The DeFuniak Springs
Country Club is in very good
shape with fast greens and
plenty of grass in the fair-
ways. The 18-hole course is
very challenging and with the
club's big event on the hori-
zon, the Club Luau on June
4-5, should stay that way for
the next several weeks. The
Luau, which consists of 88 3-
man teams playing a
scramble, is one of the top
club events for the course


each year, and very difficult
to get a slot into.
Falling Waters Country
Club in Chipley is currently
closed. The club has been
shut down for nearly six
months, though rumor has it
that the City of Chipley has
bought the course and will try
to open it by next year. The
9-hole course has always had
sparse grass but offers one of
the easier areas to walk for a
round, as it is on a compact
track of land.
Foxwood Country Club in
Crestview is traditionally one
of the courses that I traffic
frequently. However, a
chemical mixup has de-
stroyed a majority of their
greens, leaving temporary
greens as the remedy. Put-
ting was a chore this past
weekend and frustrating to
say the least. If you didn't
drop a shot on the pin, your
putt was going to be more like
a dribble to the cup than a


smooth glide. It will likely be
the fall before the normal
greens can be played again.
The Great Oaks Golf
Course in Cottondale is a 9-
hole course with nice, grassy
fairways and little wait to
play during the week. The
course is plagued by mosqui-
tos on #7, but has layered
greens and can be played for
less than $20 for 18 holes.
Right now it is in as good a
shape as any course I have
played.
Indian Springs in
Marianna is still recovering
from a tornado spun off of
Hurricane Ivan last Septem-
ber. The twister removed sev-
eral trees from the course
that came into play during a
round, leaving the course
wide open in some spots.
Grass is a little hard to come
by in the fairways right now,
but the course still has solid
greens and play flows well
over its 18 holes.

Building permits

nixed for upscale

Driftwood Estates


By DOTTYNIST
No more building permits
will be issued for homes in
Driftwood Estates for the
time being, as the result of a
May 24 decision by the Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC).
The decision followed
leilgthy testimony by Allen
Osborne and other homeown-
ers in the subdivision. Over
a dozen homeowners were in
attendance.
Inadequate stormwater
drainage was the chief com-
plaint of the homeowners.
"The water is not draining
there whatsoever," Osborne
said.
"The mosquitoes are ridicu-
lous," he added.
Osborne said most of the
lots around the exterior of the
Mack Bayou-area subdivi-
sion have been developed and
the interior is now being de-
veloped by Olson and Associ-
ates and Adams Homes.
No one spoke on behalf of
the developers at the meet-
ing.
The homeowners had sus-
picions that the development
of the interior lots might not
be in accordance with ap-
proved plans for stormwater
drainage. Osborne presented
some of the original mid-
1990s plans that showed ten
lakes within the subdivision,
linked by pipes, for the pur-
pose of draining the subdivi-
sion, which he said was sup-


posed to consist of 180 lots.
Osborne explained that the
former owner of the subdivi-
sion, Sandestin, had never
constructed the original
drainage plan calling for the
lakes.
He said current develop-
ment plans show only three
lakes and that 467.units are
planned.
There are still 307 homes
left to be built," Osborne said.
"It's flooding now," he
warned.
Osborne was puzzled as to
how the drainage plan had
been changed without prop-
erty owners being aware of a
change.
"The DRI included a drain-
age plan...if you modify the
drainage plans, I think you
have to resubmit," he com-
mented.
He also brought up the is-
sue that his lot and others
had been bought with the
understanding that they
would be lakefront once the
lakes were built. Under the
new plans, many will not be
lakefront but will be next to
other lots with homes, he
noted.
Osborne stated that
stormwater is not draining
from the lots where the ex-
pensive new homes are being
built.
He said the neighbors are
not asking for construction to

New toll roads, bridges


may be on Walton horizon


By TIANA LARSEN

On the final day of the re-
cent state legislative session,
lawmakers passed a quietly-
inserted plan that could re-
sult in massive highway con-
struction across the pan-
handle.
Contained within House
Bill 1681, the legislation cre-


ates "The Northwest Florida
Corridor Authority." HB 1681
was sponsored by Represen-
tative Ray Sansom, R-Destin,
who chairs the Transporta-
tion Committee.
An Associated Press story
attributed the language cre-
ating the new transportation
authority to Representative
Will Kendrick, D-Carrabelle,


who co-sponsored the bill.
According to language in
the bill, the authority's pur-
pose is "to improve mobility,
traffic safety and economic
development along the U.S.
98 corridor stretching
through Escambia, Santa
Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, Bay,
Gulf, Franklin, and Wakulla
counties."


The authority has been
given the power to issue rev-
enue bonds, to set and collect
tolls, fees and other charges,
to acquire land by purchase,
donation or eminent domain,
(condemnation) to borrow
money, to sue and be sued,
and to enter into contracts,

Environmental forum resounding success


By TIANA LARSEN
"A dream come true, a
small idea turned into a re-
ality," remarked moderator
Randy Harelson, (founder of
the Gourd Garden, native
plant expert and member of
many local civic groups) as he
thanked the thirty-plus orga-
nizations that participated in
the first annual Walton
SCounty Environmental Fo-
rum. Harelson was pleased
to see his "small idea" from
two years ago materialize
into a successful event,
hosted by the South Walton
Tourist Development Council
(TDC).
"Today is Earth Day for
Walton County," he said, not-
ing that communication and


cooperation were two guiding
principles of Lady Bird
Johnson, well-known for her
efforts to preserve native
landscapes along the nation's
highways.
In that spirit of communi-
cation, Harelson introduced
the representatives ofthe di-
verse groups in attendance,
beginning with John Gillis,
TDC representative and
chair of the TDC's nature-
based tourism committee.
'The committee, Gillis ex-
plained, acts as a liaison with
businesses, helping to foster
the growth of nature-based
tourism and search for "hid-
den treasures" in the county
to enhance the tourist expe-
rience. Many of those hidden

THIS DISPLAY, set up by the Choctawhatchee Basin
Alliance, was typical of many informative presentations dur-
ing the environmental forum, where over 30 organizations
gathered to network and share information.


gems have already been
found, and there is a wealth
of information available
about these special places
.that make this county part of
a regional biodiversity "hot
spot."
Of 43 northwest Florida
threatened and endangered
species, 16 are found in Wal-
ton County. "We all have a re-
sponsibility to protect these,"
said Gail Carmody, project
leader with the U.S. Fish &
Wildlife Service Panama City
office.
Following the theme of
communication and coopera-
tion, each participant set up
a display about their organi-
zation and gave a short talk
on their focus and activities.
It soon became apparent
that in protecting habitat for
plants and animals, a wide
range of human activities
and interests also finds a
place in the habitat, from ca-
noe trails, hiking, biking and
horseback riding trails, bird
watching, ecotourism busi-
nesses, gardening, butterfly
raising, sea turtles, beach
management, historical
studies, scientific projects of
all sorts, and protection of
water quality.
"In this busy world, if
people do not have a connec-
tion to the natural world,
they won't protect it," re-
marked Vernon Compton,
project director of the Gulf
Coastal Plain Ecosystem
Partnership (GCPEP).
GCPEP has put together


volunteer landowners con-
cerned with the loss of
longleaf pine and aquatic
habitat, and there are now
over one million acres of land
in the partnership, whose
goals include stewardship,
species recovery, land protec-
tion and education.
Compton is also a vice-
president of the Florida Trail
Association, which is work-
ing to protect and complete
hiking trails throughout the
state. The association man-
ages the Florida Scenic Trail,
portions of which are located
in Walton County.
Of the 1,300 miles that
have been mapped, three-
quarters of this trail have
been built, and sixty thou-
sand hours of volunteer time
were given last year on trail
work. When completed, the
trail will travel all the way
from the Everglades to Fort
Pickens, through Blackwater
and on into Alabama, where
a connection with the Appa-
lachian Trail would make it
possible to hike from the tip
of south Florida to Canada.
The audience also received
information about water test-
ing, transplanting sea
grasses, the Florida Master
Naturalist Program, tourism
in rural areas, county map-
ping services, environmental
health, projects in the Pt.
Washington State Forest,
native plants, greenways,
where to get technical help
with soils and erosion, and
other interesting topics.


Environmental education
was another topic that came
up several times during the
conference. "It is our dream
to educate tourists and chil-
dren about native plants,"
said Barbara Allen, df the
DeFuniak Springs Garden
Club, which was recently
named Garden Club of the
Year, for the entire state of
Florida.
Allen and the club mem-
bers have been working with
restoring the gardens around
the DeFuniak Library with
native plants, arid would like
to extend this project all the
way around the Lakeyard,
where soil is eroding and the


plants and trees are dying
off.
Nonie Maines, with the
League of Environmental
Educators in Florida, also
spoke to the need for more
environmental educators.
Maines also represented the
Florida Wildlife Federation
and her own business, which
has a program to restore
backyard habitats.
Harelson commented that
he has always thought that
backyard habitat certifica-
tion is possibly attainable for
some part -of south Walton,
and a number of the audience

WC Code Enforcement


Department expands staff


By DOTTYNIST
With the recent addition of
a new officer, the staff of the
Walton County Code En-
forcement Department now
numbers five. This includes
Kevin Hargett, department
supervisor, who came on
board in January. New of-
ficer Mark Kelley was intro-
duced at the May 19 Walton
County Code Enforcement
Board meeting. Kelley pre-
viously served as a code en-
forcement officer in Santa
Rosa County and at the city
of Destin.
Other officers on the de-
partment staff include
Buddy Wright, J.C. Alford,
and Tina Wilder. An addi-
tional officer may be added
to the department in next
year's budget, Hargett said.
Walton County code en-
forcement is charged with
protecting the health, safety
and welfare of county citi-
zens and helping sustain
their quality of life. Among
the department's responsi-
bilities is investigation of
possible violations of the
Walton County Land Devel-
opment Code and other
county codes.
The department's enforce-
ment powers include the is-
suance of citations and stop
work orders. Officers strive
to "abate," or get violations
corrected by working with
alleged violators and gain-
ing their cooperation. If this
is not possible, enforcement
tools come into play, includ-
ing requiring alleged viola-
tors to appear before the
Walton County Code En-
forcement Board.
Composed of volunteers
appointed by the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners, the code
enforcement board hears in-
formation on cases pre-
sented by code enforcement
officers and by-aleged vio-'


lators. Their sessions are
conducted in a quasi-judicial
format. The board then
makes a judgment as to
whether a violation of
county code exists.
Enforcement powers of the
board include the levying of
fines. However, correction of
the violation is the board's
primary goal.
While Hargett reports that
his department's complaint
call load has steadily in-
creased over the last few
months, averaging 80 to 100
new complaints per month,
the code enforcement board
monthly agendas for the
hearing of cases have been
short and sometimes nonex-
istent this year. The board is
required by code to meet ev-
ery two months. It has been
unnecessary to hold some
meetings this year, and oth-
ers have consisted of case
updates only.
This is in contrast with
previous years, when code
enforcement board meetings
with full case agendas began
at 6 p.m. and sometimes ran
until 10 or even 11 p.m.
Hargett explains that more
violations are being abated

without alleged violators
having to be brought before
the code enforcement board.
For this he credits a larger
staff than in previous years,
plus the skill and training
level of his staff.
In May, the code enforce-
ment board heard one case
update and voted to impose
fines on the property owners.
This was in connection with
a previously heard case in
which violations had been
found and had yet'to be cor-
rected.
Property owners Ronnie L.
Oglesby Jr. and Ronnie
Oglesby Sr. will be required
to correct violations in con-
nection with duty of mainte-
nance and outdoor storage of
inoperable vehicles, junk and
debris, located at 80 My Way,
by June 16. Failure to correct
the violation by that date
will result in the imposition
of a $25-per-day fine, retro-
active to May 20, to continue
until the violation is cor-
rected.


WALTON COUNTY's code enforcement department staff now numbers five. The
officers' skills in resolving code issues has cut down considerably on the number of
cases that have remained to be heard this year by Walton County Code Enforcement
Board.

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.

Governor approves sales

tax for hurricane supplies


While visiting areas im-
pacted last September by
Hurricane Ivan, Governor
Jeb Bush signed legislation
authorizing the first-ever 12-
day sales tax holiday on hur-
ricane-preparedness supplies
and presented $9 million
checks to Escambia and
Santa Rosa counties. The
$18 million presented to the
counties is relief funding pro-
vided by the federal govern-
ment as community develop-
ment block grants.
"Being prepared for hurri-
cane season can protect prop-
erty and save lives," said
Governor Bush. "I hope this
tax benefit will encourage
Floridians to ready them-
selves,. their families, homes
and businesses for the 2005
hurricane season, and the
money provided through
these grants will help North-
west Florida recover from
Ivan."
Florida taxpayers will save
approximately $10 million
during this sales tax holiday.


Under the legislation, no
state or local sales tax will be
collected on certain hurri-
cane-preparedness items
from 12:01 a.m. June 1
through midnight June 12,
2005.,

Items exempt from sales
tax during this period in-
clude: Portable electrical
generators less than $750;
radios, two-way radios,
weather-band radios, tarpau-
lins, flexible waterproof
sheeting, ground-anchor sys-
tems, and tie-down kits less
than $50; AA, C, D, 6-volt,
and 9-volt batteries less than
$30 excludes automobile and
boat batteries. AAA batter-
ies are still taxable); coolers
or ice chests less than $30.
(electrical coolers are still
taxable); gas or diesel
fuelcontainers less than $25;
portable self-powered lights,
battery-operated flashlights,
battery or gas-powered lan-
terns."6r candles selling for
less than $20.


Prepare now


Gallagher wants Floridians to be


protected this hurricane season


After an unprecedented
hurricane season last year
and experts predicting the
formation of more than 13
named Atlantic storms this
season, Florida's Chief Fi-
nancial Officer Tom
Gallagher is issuing a warn-
ing to consumers: Prepare
now. The official start of hur-
ricane season is June 1 and
it ends Nov. 30.
"Last year's storms were a
powerful reminder that
homeowners need compre-
hensive insurance coverage,
including flood coverage,"
said Gallagher, whose agency
worked with tens of thou-
sands of homeowners devas-
tated by losses. "Review your
insurance coverage and
make sure it's adequate so
you can protect what you've
worked so hard to build."
Nearly 1.7 million insur-
ance claims, representing
$21 billion in losses, were
filed after four hurricanes
inflicted damage in 54 of
Florida's 67 counties last
year.
Gallagher also advised Flo-
ridians to take steps to
strengthen their homes to
better protect their families
and properties and reduce
the level of catastrophic
losses. "It pays to better pro-
tect your home from a hurri-
cane," Gallagher said. He
also suggested following
these storm preparation tips;
don't wait until the last
minute to buy coverage. If
you're covered, carefully re-
view your policy, especially
its "declarations" page. Up-
grade your policy limits if
they do not cover the current
value of your home and its
contents; know whether your
policy pays the "replacement
cost" or "actual cash value"
for a covered loss. Gallagher
said many 2004'storm :vic-

tims were shocked to learn
that "actual cash value"
rarely paid enough to replace
a destroyed item at today's
prices; be sure you know
what your deductible is for
hurricane losses. Most poli-
cies now have a hurricane de-
ductible of two to five percent
of a home's insured value.
Legislation passed in the
2005 session now allows in-
surers to offer a 10 percent
deductible. Gallagher said
many hit by last year's
storms were caught off guard
financially and unaware that
the deductible was based on
the structure's insured value
instead of the estimated hur-
ricane damage costs; con-
sider your law and ordinance
coverage. Many insurers of-
fer a rider for 25 percent law
and ordinance coverage that
helps pay for rebuilding an
older home to meet modern
building codes. Legislation
recently passed now requires
insurance companies to offer
riders for up to 50 percent
law and ordinance coverage;
inventory your household
items, including receipts,,
purchase dates and serial
numbers. Photograph or
video-tape your possessions.


Keep copies of this informa-
tion and your insurance poli-
cies in a safe place and keep
the originals in a safe deposit
box; write down the name,
address and claims-reporting
telephone number of your
insurance company, which
may differ from your agent's
contact information. Keep
this information in a safe
place and make sure you
have access to it if you are
forced to evacuate your
home; when a hurricane
threatens, take action to pro-
tect your property. Buy the
materials you need to secure
your property and minimize
your losses. Cover your win-
dows with shutters, siding or
plywood. Move vehicles into
a garage or carport when pos-
sible; remember to withdraw
money before a pending
natural disaster. Normally
financial institutions will be
closed at least two days after
a direct hit and ATMs could
be out of commission even
longer; keep materials such
as plywood and plastic on
hand in case you need to
make temporary repairs af-
ter a storm. Repairs made to
prevent further damage to
property are reimbursable by

Gallagher also alerted Flo-
ridians that legislation re-
cently passed prohibits in-,
surance companies from non-
.renewing homeowners' poli-
cies until 90 days after hur-
ricane repairs are completed
and requires insurers to pay
replacement costs up front on
a storm claim rather than
holding back money until re-
pairs are completed or re-
placement contents are pur-
chased.

Gallagher said that
homeowners can also look
forward to insurance compa-

Aerators:


Go with the Flow



Do \ou have a faucet that blasts out
a huge stream of water?
If it doesn't have an aerator tip. you're wasting money .


Aerators are a simple and inexpensive \\ aI to save
money on your water bill. These little devices screw
onto the business end of your faucet. The\ sa\e \ou
money by mixing air \\ ith water, creating, a flow that is
forceful but uses far fe\ er gallons per minute.


How\ much difference does it make? When w ashing
hands, doing dishes or anything else other than filling
something up. \ ith an aerator you \\ill use 50 percent
less water.


Not a bad savings for something that costs only a
couple of bucks. So check your kitchen sink, bathroom
la\ stories, laundry\ tubs and bar sinks. If th \ don't
have aerators. put one on. You will sa\e dough b\

soon hear the kids
crying in their


rooms,


kicking


around the dog,
complaining of being
bored and just tired
of sitting around.
This could only
mean that school is
out for the summer
and they need to be
entertained.

With the final bell about to
ring, bringing another school
year to a close, it is time to
figure out what to do with
those kids and all their free
time. Some will have sum-
mer jobs, while others will
just sit in front of the televi-
sion and play hours of video'
a&ndwmppuPterngpmu er-e '
But there are alternatives
that can make their summer
be more enjoyable and educa-
tional. From county recrea-
tion programs to art and
drama classes, there is some-
thing for every kid in the
house.
From the end of May
through the first of August,
there are several activities
that are being geared to-
wards school-age children.
There is always the usual ac-
tivities such as the water-
parks, the beach, goofy golf,
go-cart and amusement cen-
ters to occupy them and give
the entire family an activity.
But this summer, why not
try something different that
prepares them for another
year of school, without them
thinking they are really
working throughout the
summer as if they were still
in school.
If your child is into music,
take advantage of the many
concerts that are free and
open to the public that are all
set in a family-freindly envi-
ronment.
*Concert series such as the
Mattie Kelly Concerts in the
Park that take place every
Thursday throughout the
month of June are a great
means of entertainment and
education.
Rosemary Beach once
again offers children's activi-
ties throughout the summer


L L .4.


months that include kid par-
ties, educational and art
projects, music and acting

and stage productions that
will headline and showcase
the various properties on a
nightly basis.
Of course, numerous prop-
erties and resorts sponsor
such events to bring business
to their merchants and
towns, but it is also a way to
fuse summer fun and crea-
tive arts into one evening.
Sure, it brings warm bodies
into their venue, but it also
provides families with a free
night out.
On the acting stage, little
theater and children's acting
troupes are in full swing
throughout the summer
months. These classes not
only teach children about
basic theater, it also teaches
them teamwork, memoriza-
tion, stage presence and pro-
nunciation.
Stage'' performers class
teach kids to sing and dance,
while other theater camps,
like the B.E.T.A Children's
Theater and the Pensacola
Little Theatre, present sum-
mer rehearsals for early fall
performances that has an all
children's cast.
If the acting, dancing,
singing or concert bug won't
bite, and they just enjoy a
time of reflection and fan-
tasy, then various local li-
braries and bookstores or
offering reading and sto-
rytime. The Coastal Branch
Library, the DeFuniuak
Springs Library, the Destin
Library and the Freeport Li-
brary are all offering
children's story hour.
Most of the storytimes
start between 10 and 10:30
a.m. on Tuesday mornings.
During the summer break
with those long, hot days
staying in front of the televi-
sion while you are at work,
can really take their toll on a
young person. With a little
imagination, research on
summer programs through-
out the area, and some en-
couragement from you, the
parents, summer break may
never be the same again.
With all that is being of-
fered throughout the tri-
county area, you can be as-
sured that your child is stay-
ing out of trouble and acquir-
ing educational tools that
could help them once the
school bell rings in August.

Landscape Design
competition awards spon-
sored each year by the Green
Thumb Garden Club were
announced May 18 at Em-
bassy Suites, Miramar
Beach.
As a lead-in to the an-
nouncement noted landscape
designer Randy Harelson
narrated a slide show of pre-
vious winning gardens, both
'residential and commercial.
The presentation was a vir-
tual primer on what makes
a garden special and seeing
slides of this year's winning
gardens was a visual treat.
The home of Charles and
Ann Hartley, of 66 Holly
Street in Seagrove Beach,
won the private/residential
category and the award in
commercial/public gardens
went to The Howard Group
for the landscaping at Publix,
Grand Boulevard, Sandestin.
The primarily shaded
Hartley garden was excep-
tional. Harelson said, "Ex-
ceptionally calm and green
with its variegated blue, lav-
ender and white
leaves." Harelson said the
Hartley's attention to the
path system, "a boardwalk, a
stone walk and its beautiful
herb garden and use of drift-
wood ,and native found ob-
jects added to its charm."Ann
Hartley thanked friend
Karin Karrdal and garden
maintenance pros Jose
Mendez and crew for their
guidance.
Harelson said, "The fo-
cused design with its healthy,
well-weeded care," was what
drew him and assistant
Kendall Horn to the commer-
cial awardee, The Howard
Group's Publix at Grand
Boulevard, Sandestin. He
said the southern live oak
tree, the fountain and green
spaces surrounding the park-
ing lot showed a high level of
attention as did various-sized
groups of pots with their sea-
sonal flowers and plants.
Harelson noted that the
shade arbor, showing
commitment one day to the
future of a public transpor-
tation system, was especially
impressive.
"This alone put it at the top

Florida Highway Patrol



gearing up for Memorial



Day Weekend 2005


session, By BRUCE COLLIER
of the The Florida Highway Pa-
nession trol is preparing for the 96-
imple- hour Memorial Day holiday
cal stu- weekend. FHP has released
ts. The preliminary statewide fatal
he pro- accident statistics for the
201.41 2004 holiday weekend.
Any in- According to the 2004
Sa pre- weekend figures, there were
d 2005- a total of 35 vehicular acci-
n from dents, involving a total of 40
t, Suite
32435, fatalities.
1100, at One-half of the 40 persons
killed were driving the ve-
hicle. More than half of the
schools accidents took place on Sat-
District urday and Monday.
Percentage figures show
#682D that 83 percent of the 24 driv-
ers and passengers killed in
vehicles normally equipped
with safety belts were not
using their belts. The
weather was reported to be
clear in 86 percent of the
crashes.


Alcohol was a factor in 40
percent of the crashes, and
in 43 percent of the deaths
in those crashes.
To help avoid a repetition
of these figures, FHP is par-
ticipating in three traffic
enforcement operations.
These will begin on Friday,
May 27, and end at midnight
on Monday, May 30.
The Florida Highway Pa-
trol will join in a 50-state po-
lice/highway patrol effort
called "Operation C.A.R.E.
(Combined Accident Reduc-
tion Effort)."
FHP will also take part in
"All-American Buckle Up
Week," which will run from
May 23 to May 30.
May 23 through June 3 will
be the time for "Click It or
Ticket," a seatbelt enforce-
ment campaign.
FHP is urging the public
to buckle up; calling it "the


single most effective thing
that can be done to save
lives."
During the Memoral Day
weekend, all unformed FHP
personnel normally assigned
to administrative office duty
will assist regular troopers
by patrolling interstates and
other major state roads.
FHP hopes that this in-
creased presence will deter
potential traffic violators,
and provide service to trav-
elers whose vehicles break
down, or who need other as-
sistance.
Drivers are also advised to
use cellular phones wisely
and safely, and to call *FHPi
(*347) to report aggressive
and/or drunk drivers, or ifi
they need assistance on the
road.
In case of emergencies,
motorists should dial 911.
