County remembers Memorial Day


By RONKELLEY
Although for nany citizens,
Memorial Day is little more
than an extra day off from
work, a chance to go to the
beach with the family or have
a barbecue party with
friends, for veterans in Wal-
ton County, it is a time to re-
member fallen comrades-in-
arms, friends and fellow free-
dom fighters who gave their
lives for their country.
Of several veteran's ser-
vices held throughout Walton
County, among the most
moving was a tribute held at
Gum Creek Cenietery, just
off Hwy. 83 in Glendale.
The 155-year-old cemetery
is a fitting place to hold ame-
morial service. Nine Confed-
erate soldiers, one Confeder-
ate Militia member and one
Union soldier rest there,
along with soldiers from
World War I and II and the
Vietnam War.
The ceremony, organized
by retired Air Force Sgt. Don
Wilkerson, began at 8 a.m.
with the playing of a record-
ing of the Washington Post
March, followed by an invo-
cation by Rev. Jerry
Chumley. Retired Lt. Col.
Jane Philpott was one of two
guest speakers. She dis-
cussed the proper way to fold
an American flag and what


VETERANS PREPARE TO FOLD THE AMERICAN FLAG during Me moral Day
ceremonies at Gum Creek Cemetery.


each fold represents. She
closed her remarks by recit-
ing the poem, Flanders
Fields, by Lt. Col. John
McRae, M.D., of the Cana-
dian Army.
SThe second guest speaker,
Lt. Col. Christopher Shedd of
the Florida National Guard,


gave a moving recitation of
comedian Red Skelton's ode
to the Pledge of Allegiance,
followed by the playing of
Amazing Grace on bagpipes.
The crowd of about 50 spec-
tators sang God Bless
America and Taps was also
played.


"In Flanders Fields, the
poppies blow between the
crosses, row on row..."
Monday may have just
been another holiday in some
places, but in this tiny
'Flanders Field' in the small
community of Glendale, it
was truly Memorial Day.


Freeport parks and sewers



in the spotlight


By BEN GRAFTON
Possibly prompted by re-
marks made at the regular
Freeport City Council meet-
ing of May 10, by Mayor
Mickey Marse concerning
the transfer of title of a park
property from Freeport 860
LLC to the city, developer
Jay Odom appeared before
the council and presented a
review of the effort his orga-
nization has made to provide
a recreation facility that both
the developer and the city
can be proud of.
Odom reviewed the origi-
nal concept that visualized a
park of some forty acres that
has since grown into a
planned facility of sixty acres
that will, at its completion,
have playing fields for T-ball,
softball, baseball, soccer, ten-
nis, lawn bowling, and other
activities.
Odom noted that just the
property value of the park
approaches $8,000,000 and
that the cost of the finished-
facility will add several mil-
lions more to this figure.
Odom said that with the
council's approval, the Ham-
mock Bay Development will
provide those things shown
in the current version of the
park plan and turn the fin-
ished facility over to the city
of Freeport.


The council approved this
proposal.
In a parallel development,
representatives of the Boys
and Girls Club spoke to the
council about their interest
in participating in the devel-
opment and operation of the
recreation park to include an
indoor facility. At the urging
of Walton County Commis-
sioner Roe Cuchens, the
council approved the Boys
and Girls Club participation.
On another subject, per-
haps more important to the
Freeport area than the park
issues, Marse presented a
report to the council of a pro-
posal worked out with Re-
gional Utilities that would
create a long range coopera-
tive relationship between the
two entities which would re-
sult in an extensive expan-
sion of sewer service to resi-
dents north of Chocta-
whatchee Bay.
Under this proposal Re-
gional would finance, engi-
neer and construct a portions
of a force main system that
would extend down CR 3280'
to the site of property owned
by four major developers (in-
cluding Black Creek Holding,
LLC) and north along the
route of Black Creek
Blouvard to the future Re-
gional Utilities reclaimed


water disposal site. The city
will reimburse Regional, not
to exceed $1,500,000 for pipe
and installation costs.
The force main would be
installed in the same trench
used by Regional for its re-
claimed water transfer line.
The city has already received
an advance payment of
$1,500,000 against the cost of
future taps used by the de-
veloper. These funds would
be used to reimburse Re-
gional.
A second part of the pro-
posal between the city and
Regional calls for the city to
purchase 200 acres of prop-
erty from Regional at
$30,000 per acre to be used
for a new sewage treating
plant, Regional will then con-
struct, in two phases, a
1,000,000 gallon per day
treating plant for the city.
The cost of the plant at.
completion is estimated to be
$12,000,000. The city would
pay for this by using.income
from projected water and
sewer taps.
After consideration, the
council voted giving approval
to proceed.
In other business the coun-
cil approved the first read-
ings of proposed ordinances
for small scale amendments
involving rezoning of the


Davis, Bates, Sweeney and
Martin properties in the land
use plan and another simple
rezoning for the Hunter
property.

In a separate action the
council approved the pro-
posal for the Freeport Town
Homes development of a 67-
unit, gated town home com-
munity to the west of U.S.
331 North.
City Engineer Charles Pe-
ters reported that bids on
residential sewer pumps
have been received and are
currently under review. Rec-
ommendations will be pre-
sented at the meeting sched-
uled for June 14.
Peters also reported that
progress on the layout for the
Bay area sewer collection
force main continues. He said
that a search for a site to
cross Lafayette Creek is un-
derway.
Interviews of applicants for
the city billing clerk, water
and sewer jobs will be done
at a special council meeting
at 7 p.m. on June 7.
Councilwoman Jean Ar-
rant reported that an agree-
ment had been reached for
the "YMCA" to operate the
Freeport swimming pool.
The new opening day has
been set for June 12.


City Council


tightens sign laws


By RON KELLEY
The DeFuniak Springs
City Council sent back a pro-
posed amendment to the sign
ordinance for further re-
working designed to make
the ordinance more restric-
tive.
For instance, in Section
17.06, regarding signs in a C-
1 district, the current ordi-
nance reads, "Businesses
that have frontages on two or
more streets may have a sec-
ondary ground sign if the to-
tal of any two street front-
ages is more than two hun-
dred feet." Councilman Don
Harrison recommended the
wording be changed to read,
"Businesses that have front-
ages on two or more streets
may have one secondary
ground sign if the total of any
two street frontages is more
than 300 feet."
Another proposed change
deals with Section 17.01A
regarding the number of
signs permitted. The current
law reads, "The square foot-
age of all signs shall not ex-
ceed the total square footage
as set for in this chapter."
The new language, if ap-
proved, would read, "The
square footage of all com-
bined signs shall not exceed
the square footage as set
forth in this chapter."
In Section 17-06, regarding
signs permitted in R-2 dis-,
tricts, six detailed options
will simply be removed, leav-
ing the section to state only
that the maximum area of all
signs on any premises shall
not exceed 64 square feet and
shall not exceed 40 feet in
height.
The same section goes on
to state "political issue, po-
litical candidate, civic, reli-
gious, scientific or philo-
sophical signs, or displayed
on private property in the C-
1 District. Signs shall not be
placed within 20 feet of the
street curb or edge of pave-
ment and shall not exceed
."32 square feet in area':All
such signs shall be roiiibced
within five days after the
event, election or issue to
which they pertain." Some
citizens have complained
that this ordinance is rou-
tinely ignored by candidates


and officials alike.
City staff also borrowed
,from a Chipley city ordinance
having to do with businesses
that have multiple frontages,
that is, which front more
than one street.
Councilman Harrison also
recommended tightening
this one, which currently
calls for 100 feet between
signs that front different.
streets. Harrison recom-:
mended 200 feet between the:
signs.
Assistant City Manager
Larry Laird took all the coun-
cil comments under advise-
ment and will return a fin-
ished draft to the council for
approval at their first meet-
ing in June.
In other city news, the
council discussed a bill from
CSX that started at $9,000
for work the council did not
consider worth the amount.
A negotiated 30 percent re-
duction to $6,322 was dis-
cussed but rejected. City At-
torney ClaytonAdkinson will
contact CSX and continue
negotiations.
The city approved two an-
nexations of land, including.
a parcel north of'Walton
Road that includes Maude
Saunders Elementary
School, the Sheriff's Youth,
Ranch and property owned
by Jack Pendery and Ronnieg
Brannon. The second parcel.
is a 37-acre tract on Steel.
Church Road, which borders.
1-10 and is west ofWal-Mart
Superstore on U.S. 331. The
land is owned by Michael,
Marsilano.
County officials asked the
city to waive the estimated
$250,000 in tap fees for the
new jail project, to be located'
near Walton Correctional In-
stitution. The council voted
to deny the request but
agreed to consider some kind
of trade. Negotiations con-
tinue.
This meeting also marked
the final council meeting that
Mike Standley attended- as-
cit3r imhaiii i Aftdi 21 years
in the job, Standley resigned
his post to take the position
of operations manager for
Regional Utilities, Inc., a wa-
ter and sewer company that
serves south Walton County.


-By BRUCE COLLIER
The Executive Division of
the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement has com-
pleted its investigation into
possible criminal misconduct
by DeFuniak Springs Police
Chief Ray Burgess. The file
has been forwarded to the
office of State Attorney Bill
Eddins in Pensacola for re-
view and disposition.

FDLE public information
officer Phil Kiracofe con-
firmed that the investigation
was completed "recently,"
and that the state attorney
must now decide what ac-
tion, if any, to take.
Assistant State Attorney
John Simon is in charge of
the review. Simon declined
to comment, except to say
that the matter was "under
review."


Florida governor Jeb Bush
ordered the FDLE to initiate
the investigation on April 8,
2005.
The governor's order came
following a letter, dated
March 22, from former De-
Funiak Springs police de-
partment office supervisor
Patti King-Skinner.
The letter, written to then-
DeFuniak Springs City Man-
ager Mike Standley, said that:
King-Skinner had been
asked to falsify official recer-
tification records. King-Skin-
ner said she had refused, and
had been pressured into re-
signing.
The records in question
concerned former Walton
County Sheriff's Office Col.
William Noah Chapman,
who allegedly had been seek-
ing recertification as a law
enforcement officer.

CRACK AND PIPE STEM SEIZED AT POLICE CHECK-
POINT in DeFuniak Springs.


DFS Police check-point yields one drug arrest, no DUI's


By BRUCE COLLIER
DeFuniak Springs Police
conducted a two-hour traffic
checkpoint at the intersection
of Highway 90 and 25th
Street in DeFuniak Springs.
on May 27. A total of 593 ve-
hicles passed through the
checkpoint.
The operation began at 9:02
p.m. and ended at 11:12 p.m.
DFS Police Lieutenant Den-
nis Ward reported that of the
cars that passed through, 23
were pulled out for further


investigation.
"There were four citations
and one arrest for suspended
driver's licenses, and no
DUI's," said Ward.
A single arrest was made
for possession of two rocks of
crack cocaine, and drug para-
phernalia. Police were aided
in this arrest by the services
of Kilo, a six-year-old K-9
narcotics dog.
Officer Derek Walters is
Kilo's handler. Walters also
provides a home for the
mixed-breed drug hound,


who was rescued from a
pound. Walters said that Kilo
learned his trade in 30 days.
"He's trained to detect
crack, powdered cocaine,
marijuana, and meth."

Walters added that Kilo's
nose has helped police in the
location and seizure of
$15,000 worth of narcotics
and drug-related property
over the past two years.
"He's worth his weight in
gold," said Walters.
Lt. Ward said that the po-


lice were pleased with the
absence of DUI's, and that the
.public response was gener-
ally favorable.

"Most people were glad to
see us out there," he said.
"There was another check-
point, in Andalusia, so some
of these people were stopped
twice in the same night."

Ward estimated that the
average time delay for a ve-
hicle was 1 minute and 15
seconds.

Walton FCAT scores improve


By Patric Casey
Results from the 2005
Florida Comprehensive As-
sessment Test show a general
improvement for Walton
County students. The state
released 2005 FCAT reading
and math results as the
school year came to a close
locally last week.

Eighty percent of fourth-
graders were proficient in
reading this year compared
with 75 percent in 2004.
Reading scores went down
with each advancement in
giade level with tenth- grad-
ers proficient in reading at
only 29 percent, the same as
in 2004.
Math scores were solid.


Five of the eight grade levels
showed improvement over
2004. Writing scores across
the board were down 1 per-
cent, but were still the second
highest scores posted by
county students over the last
five years.
Walton County students
were above the state average
in reading in all but sixth,
seventh, and tenth grades.
Sixth and seventh-graders
were just one point below the
state average while tenth-
graders fell three points be-
low the mean (average)
scores.-

some grades in math as only
fourth, eighth, and ninth-

Walton County students
also had above-average
scores on the science portion
of the FCAT and showed over-
all improvement as compared
to the state averages. While
Walton County did not rank
as highly as Okaloosa or
Santa Rosa students, Walton
fared better than Holmes

Remembering every day


By RON KELLEY

When this newspaper reaches the mailboxes and news-
stands, Memorial Day will have passed and everyone will
be back at work. While I hope that everyone enjoyed their
long weekend, it's so easy to forget the reason for this holi-
day.
Few people living today have not been touched by war in
some way, either having served or had a friend or family
member who did. Some returned after their service was done.
Too many did not.
The holiday may be over, but the memories linger on. Since
this nation is still at war and our mission has not yet been
accomplished, and with the death toll rising almost every
day in Iraq, it occurred to me that perhaps it's fitting to con-
tinue to observe Memorial Day every day until our brave
young men and women return safely to the welcome arms
of the families and friends and into the bosom of a grateful
nation.
With that thought in mind, I feel it's appropriate to recall
the words of a great Canadian. Lieutenant Colonel John


Editor:
At the last commission meeting, Cindy Meadows chidec
the other commissioners, Larry Jones more specifically, ove
micro management of the sheriff. I feel some management
by the commission when dealing with a rogue cop with n
management experience is appropriate. I think Jones re
members in the past we have funded DUI units for th
sheriffs office.
It was not too long ago we funded a traffic unit complete
with motorcycles, helmets, black boots and riding britches
Where are they now? Both of these units are in every re
aspect traffic control units, properly funded and equipped
If we have already paid for traffic units, why are we func
ing yet another? Even if we don't have the men any long
where is the equipment we bought?
It seems to me strong oversight should not be confuse
with micro management. After all, Meadows, didn't we elect
you to spend our tax dollars wisely? Larry Jones' distrust
our illustrious sheriff is not misplaced.

Dear Editor,

Having read Ron Kelly's editorial in the paper last weel
about cleaning off his desk, I've decided to take his advic(
and clear some things off my own desk which have beer
accumulating over time and contributed to the mess politel:
called "politics" in Walton County.
First, I'd like closure from the sheriff's department or th
FDLE into the beating and subsequent investigation of Briar
Corbin. In Nov. 2004, an.already injured Brian Corbin wa
allegedly arrested and booked into the Walton County Jail
Corbin was later flown to Pensacola Sacred Heart Hospita
at taxpayer expense and spent 45 days in CCU with tw
broken legs and severe head injuries. According to police
protocol, injured persons are to be taken to the nearest hos
pital for treatment, if injured prior to arrest/booking. I'(
also like to ask how Corbin's medical treatment became
taxpayer-funded issue and why "we" (the taxpayer) pai.
these bills?
Secondly, I'd like closure into the FDLE investigation c
DeFuniak Springs Police Chief Ray Burgess. I'd also like t
point out that the police department, as well as, the FDLI
has been forever tainted because of the alleged actions o
Burgess and the FDLE agent (Carl Woodall) involved in th
same investigation. There is something inherently wron
with leaving the fox guarding the hen house. Law enforce

poem during the first World War.

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith-with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Editor,
I would like to share the following story regarding our
troops in Iraq as it is one that involves a personal friend-
ship of some forty years with the two main characters, Chet
Miller, and his son, Maj. Larry Miller, a U.S. Marine of fif-
teen years and serving his second tour of duty in Iraq.
Major Miller, writes "In the desert, Marines need more
than three meals a day and a tent. They need razor blades,
sunscreen, even rags to wipe away sweaty faces and gar-
bage bags." Family members, churches, or civic groups help
out with care packages filled with loot bought or donated
from the community.
Rock Hill's (SC) Chet Miller recently sent 2,000, 1 inch
paintbrushes to Fallujah for his son's unit, besides having
previously sent dozens of boxes, with everything from hard-
candy to treat the Iraqi children, nuts and bolts, to cases of
baby wipes for use as face wipes. Rodney Phillips, store
manager of Home Depot in Pineville, NC, donated paint-
brushes for Miller's unit after hearing from a neighbor about
how a smaller brush would help. Phillips was a marine him-
self, retiring as a captain in 1993 after flying helicopters.
"The military gives us the ammunition, food and fuel, that
fighting men need. Baby wipes are used in place of a bath
when showers can't be had. Screws, nuts and bolts help make
cabinets for storage racks; one has to realize that here in
Iraq there are no Home Depots or WalMarts. Improvised
ideas like paint brushes are encouraged because officers and
troops continuously adapt to combat needs," he said.
Everyone needs toilet-paper and deodorant he says. There
are times when soldiers are not close enough to a military
store to get what they want. Care packages from home make
a difference. Soldiers from Rock Hill, in the National Guard
and Reserves say packages are invaluable to morale, hy-
giene and day-to-day existence. Even the empty bags make
a difference. Grocery bags were donated to Maj. Larry
Miller's unit by WalMart in York, NC. "Every little bit helps,"
replied Miller.
Major Larry Miller writes that he "Had a front-row seat
to history, referring to the morning of January 30, 2005 when
Iraqi's were free to vote." In his fifteen years in the Marine
Corps, he has never seen anything like it, as thousands of
Iraqis turned out in orderly manner. Concurrently, an in-
surgent or (insurgents) launched two 57mm rockets over
their heads in what turned out to be duds. Reinforcements
were called in but never needed on this occasion.
In conclusion, we're comforted to know that there are
people such as my personal friend, Chet Miller, and his son,
Major Larry Miller, as well as Rodney Phillips, who are there
to answer the call.
Chet Miller was the number 10 man with Eastern Air-
lines as the chief of Engineering and Maintenance, resign-
ing about 1 1/2 years before Eastern went belly-up. Later,
Chet worked for General Electric Jet Engine Division in Ar-
kansas City, AR. From there, he worked for Lockheed-
Marietta and was involved in a classified position with the
space program. After a distinguished position with Lockheed,
he was in charge of the Stennis Space Center in Mississippi
for a number of years before his retirement.

American Emergency shelters are run by the American Red Cross and volun-
: Red cross teers. If you evacuate to a shelter be sure to bring medications, ex-
tra clothing, pillows and blankets and other hygiene and comfort
supplies for all members of your family. Be sure to make advance preparations for
your pets, which aren't allowed in Red Cross shelters.
Currently the special needs shelter and regular needs shelter in Walton County is the
Freeport High School. Remember the special needs shelter is not a hospital or a clinic
and should be used by those with medical conditions that have no other evacuation
options. There will be no doctor, acute care nurses, specialty care nurses or caretakers
at the shelter. Those using the shelter should be accompanied by a caretaker to pro-
vide adequate 24 hours a day care. Other locations are currently being retrofitted to
serve as shelters in the near future. Sara Comander, Public Information May 2005

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 2, 2005


Employee Appreciation Week celebrated


Children's Home Society
(CHS) recently celebrated
their annual "Employee Ap-
preciation Week. Several sur-
prises were presented to the
employees throughout the
week, including gift certifi-
cates from local business
owners and a cookout.
Children's Home Society/
Healthy Families (CHS/HF)
is beginning its fifth year in


DeFuniak Springs. They
have helped numerous moth-
ers and mothers-to-be in not
only learning new techniques
about parenting, but also
how to better themselves and
their families. The program
has a wealth of resources to
support families and can pro-
vide information about com-
munity assistance as well as
state and federal programs.


Staff work closely with par-
ents in finding a pediatrician,
teaching ways to deal with
stress, parenting skills, and
help with immunizations,
among other things.
CHS employs approxi-
mately 2,300 employees
statewide and currently
serves thousands of families
in every county in Florida.
CHS/HF services are free


and participation is volun-
tary. The program prefers to
work with mothers in the
prenatal stages of their preg-
nancy, but can take families
within three'months of a
baby's birth.
For assistance, contact us
at the CHS office on Highway
83, directly across from Ster-
ling Lumber Company, or call
892-7056.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 2, 2005


WC Retired Educators Association events


By SALLY ORLOSKY
At the last general mem-
bership of the Walton County
Retired Educator's Associa-
tion (WCREA) President
Juanita Bass, introduced Dr.
Sherrell Wilkerson, DPM,
son of member, Mildred
Wilkerson, who then treated
the group to a very informa-
tive and enlightening presen-
tation regarding foot care.
Dr. Wilkerson was the vale-
dictorian of his class at Wal-
ton High School and received
his formal pre-med and po-
diatric training at the Uni-
versity of Florida and The
Chicago College of Podiatry
and is currently a Diplomat
in Orthopedics and Foot Sur-
gery at the University. Dr.
Wilkerson, along with Janay
L. Harper, DPM, of Foot Seas
Ankle and Footcare Sports
Medicine Clinic, have their
podiatric practice at
Healthmark Doctor's Park
across from the Healthmark
Regional Hospital and at
Waterside Medical Building
in Santa Rosa Beach.
Dr. Wilkerson said that his


practice includes: general
podiatric health and wellness
(nail pathology, corns/cal-
louses, diabetic care and
wound management); sports
medicine (youth athletic
screenings, sports injury
treatment/prevention and
orthotics); C02 laser Solu-
tions (cosmetic corrections,
ingrown/fungus toenails and
soft tissue growth) and ankle/
foot surgery. He spoke of pre-
vention and intervention
among his various topics.
His best advice was "If the
shoe fits, wear it; if it doesn't,
toss it." He told the group
that 70 percent of all people
over 40 years of age are wear-
ing the wrong size shoes. He
proved it by having several
members write their shoe
sizes down on a piece of pa-
per and then hand the paper
to another member while the
good doctor professionally
measured the member's feet.
He was right.
He said that while shoes
are important, their fit is
even more important. He
said that he tries to salvage


the foot. The hierarchy of in-
jury includes strains,
sprains, soreness and then
surgery as a last resort.


It is obvious that many,
many people have been wear-
ing the wrong shoes for most
of their lives because there
are so many foot problems
among the elderly that the
State of Florida now requires
that every nursing home
have a podiatrist on staff. Dr.
Wilkerson then fielded ques-
tions from the audience and
answered them profession-
ally and thoroughly. The
members were so pleased
with this wonderful and
knowledgeable presentation
and still were talking about
it among themselves several
days later.

The next meeting of the
WCREAwill commence at 11
a.m. on Friday, June. 3 the
Crossroads Best Western
hotel in DeFuniak Springs.

This luncheon and meeting


is for the general member-
ship and will feature a pre-
sentation on the Florida Re-
tired Educator's Association
Convention held last week in
Orlando, Florida. Several
representatives of the local
chapter attended the conven-
tion and are eager to share
the state-level news and
views with the membership
The meeting will feature
the installation of the
WCREA incoming officers by
state FREA president, Jan
Colcord The group will also
discuss the budget for the
2005-2006 year.
The WCREA is raising
money for their $1000 an-
nual endowment scholarship
agreement with Okaloosa-
Walton College. The WCREA
scholarship is open to any
Walton County resident at-
tending OWC full-time and
majoring in education. Infor-
mation regarding the schol-
arship, which is awarded
each spring, is available in
the OWC Financial Aid/
Scholarship Office.
The WCREA general meet-
ing is held on the first Fri-
day of each of the even-num-
bered months (February,
April, June, August, October
and December.)The WCREA
executive board meets during
the odd-numbered months
(January, March, May, July,
September and November.)
All meetings for both groups
are at 11a.m. at the Cross-
roads Best Western hotel in

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 2, 2005


2005 hurricane season underway


The 2005 Atlantic hurri-
cane season officially begins
this Wednesday, June 1.
Hurricane forecasters are
predicting an above-normal
hurricane season and state
officials urge residents to re-
view their preparedness
plans and re-stock disaster
kits during the twelve-day
sales tax holiday, which also
starts June 1.
"For six months each year,
hurricanes are a fact of life
in Florida and we must all be
prepared," said Governor Jeb
Bush. "The state's new sales
tax holiday is an opportunity
to save money purchasing


supplies every resident needs
going into hurricane season.
I urge all Floridians to take
advantage of these savings
and prepare now for the sea-
son ahead."
NOAA's National Hurri-
cane Center in Miami pre-
dicts a 70% probability of
above average activity dur-
ing the 2005 hurricane sea-
son. The forecast predicts 12
to 15 tropical storms, with 7
to 9 storms becoming hurri-
canes, and 3 to 5 reaching
major hurricane strength
(Category 3, 4, or 5 intensity
on the Saffir-Simpson Scale,
or maximum sustained


winds of 111 mph or greater).
"Every Floridian should be
able to answer three impor-
tant questions," said Director
Craig Fugate of the Florida
Division of Emergency Man-
agement. "What are the haz-
ards in my community, what
do they mean to me, and
what is my. plan of action to
deal with these hazards?
Now is the time to prepare
and be ready to act when
called to do so by local offi-
cials."
Emergency managers
across the state are promot-
ing personal responsibility
for disaster planning. Fam-
ily plans should include iden-
tifying emergency contact
numbers, rally points and
safe shelter-either in the
home, with a friend or fam-
ily member or at a local pub-
lic shelter.
"With nearly 17 million
residents in the state, it is es-
sential that people who live
in evacuation zones and mo-
bile home communities iden-
tify the nearest local shelter
as part of their hurricane
plans," said Director Fugate.
"It is much better to drive
tens of miles and not hun-
dreds miles if you have to
leave your home."

The Russian children be-

After they had taken to the
i skies over a period of three
hours. Five pilots volun-
Steered their time and aircraft
to take the children and their
sponsors for a flight over and
around the DeFuniak
Springs area.


The children had the rare
pleasure of going up to a.
height of 8,200 feet on a

to an art gallery of cloud
sculptures bigger, taller and
more beautiful than any-

Judging by their delight
and wonder, it was obvious
that the children were given
a gift they will never forget.
On top of that, Aero FX, Inc.
handed out genuine flight
suits to each child in their
own size. Aero FX donated
the fuel for the day, as well
as food and drinks for the
cook out.

sang a beautiful song in Rus-
sian and then handed out
plaques and posters to their
pilots as a way of saying
thank you. Then, in heartfelt
unity, they carefully spoke
the English they had been
practicing for days, "Thank
you, Mike Gifford and your
family and friends for all you
have done. Thank you."
There wasn't a dry eye in the
house.
The children, whose ages
ranged between 8 and 14,
then posed for photographs
with their pilots. All faces
were beaming with delight.

- Breeze


A Temple of Truth for 117 years


By RON KELLEY
Before DeFuniak Springs
was incorporated, before the
Chautauqua Hall of
Brotherhood was built,
before Henry Ford's Model A
arrived to travel the dirt
road that would become
Baldwin Avenue, before the
Choctawhatch e e Ba y
Bridge, before any of those
things, people in Walton
County had a 'Temple of
Truth.'
The DeFuniak Herald and
The Breeze newspapers,
once two separate papers
both owned by the Storrs
family, has been witness to
more than a century of
Walton County history.
Royal Storrs was the editor
of The Breeze, while Larkin
Cleveland handled editing
chores for the Herald.
The newspapers chroni-
cled the fires that destroyed
the downtown stores twice
and photographed the pas-
senger trains that brought
people from all over the
country to enjoy the six-
week Chautauqua Winter
Assembly. The papers were
here when the timber-
tycoon Wesley family built
the mansion on Tucker
Bayou that was to become
Eden State Gardens and
when DeFu-niak Springs'
most recognizable building,
the Chautauqua Hall of
Brotherhood; was built in
the Lakeyard. Circle Drive
was a dirt road, travelled by
horse and buggy. The first
county courthouse was
destroyed by fire and rebuilt
at its current site. It has
grown over the years and is
growing again.
Grover Cleveland was in
the White House when the
DeFuniak Herald and The
Breeze began their weekly
editions. Benjamin Harrison
won the 1888 election and
became president despite
losing the nationwide popu-

lar vote, something which
did not happen again until
the 2000 election when
George W. Bush assumed
the presidency.
In 1888, Edward A. Perry,
a Democrat, was governor of
Florida. In fact, Democrats
would occupy the governor's
office for the next 79 years,
until the 1967 election of
Claude Kirk Jr. There was
one notable exception, the
colorful Sydney J. Catts, a
member of the Prohibition
Party, who was governor for
a single term starting in
1917. He lived in DeFuniak
Springs for a time after los-
ing two bids for another
term. His home, built by a


Wisconsin man named
Sherman, is on the corner of
U.S. 331 and Live Oak
Avenue.
In 1888, there was no
Okaloosa County or Bay.
County or Gulf County.
Walton County boundaries
encompassed what is now
Okaloosa County, which
accounts for why that
county's largest city was
called Ft. Walton. Crestview
was actually in Walton
County and there was nd
Panama City. Washington
County encompassed what
would become Bay County
and Calhoun took in what
would become Gulf County.
The Herald's first phone


number was 98. Nothing
else, just 98.
Before radio became the
first mass medium, citizens
either traveled to see enter-
tainment or entertainment
came to them. That's how
the Chautauqua movement
began. Originating in New
York and spreading out to
other places across the
nation, the six-week pro-
grams presented famous
guest speakers and lectur-
ers, including doctors,
authors, poets, theologians
and politicians. Quartet
singers, acting troupes and
small orchestras performed,
too. At first, before the Hall
of Brotherhood was built,


the presentations were done
in various church sanc-
tuaries.
The shows were so popu-
lar that Brooklyn-born
Wallace Bruce, who was
president of the Florida
Chautauqua, began looking
for a way to present the pro-
gram during the winter sea-
son. After delivering a
speech here in 1893, Bruce
decided this was the spot.
He and other believers
started raising money and
began construction on the
Hall of Brotherhood.
Completed in 1909, the
building established
DeFuniak Springs as the
home for the Chautauqua

Winter Assembly.
Palmer College was estab-
lished here and flourished
briefly before closing. All
that remains now is the for-
mer boy's dormitory, which
has for decades been an
apartment complex.
The Murray Theatre on
Baldwin Avenue, later
called the DeFuniak
Theatre, played all the
popular movies of the day,
featuring stars like Al
Jolson, Charles Laughton,
Constance Bennett and
Rudolph Valentine. In the
sixties, the theatre was
bought by an entrepreneur
named John Lawson, who
called it the Ritz Theatre
and, later, the Lawson
Cinema. Westerns and Elvis
Presley movies were the
usual fare, but some can
remember seeing Gone With
The Wind on the big screen
there.
With the advent of radio,
allowing people to gather in
their own homes to follow
the adventures of Amos &
Andy, 'Uncle Miltie' and The
Shadow, the Chautauqua
movement became a thing
of the past. The Hall of
Brotherhood remained the
centerpiece of DeFuniak
Springs and continued to
play host to concerts, sport-
ing events, high school
proms and many other pro-
grams through the late
1950s.
The quality of front page
stories changed over the
years. One early front page
notice read, The home of
Mrs. Charles King was the
scene of a most charming
party when.the elementary
teachers of the DeFuniak
School honored Miss Minnie
Tappan, bride-elect of Mr.
John Wooten." One doesn't
see many front page stories
like that anymore.

and Breeze were there, to
record and preserve the his-
tory of Walton County.
That's not to say the focus
was all on Walton County. A
1917 edition of The Herald
announced the beginning of
World War I with a headline
that read, "Scheme of
Germany to bring on War!
Ambassador Bernstorff
plays the role of a perfidious
scoundrel."
It's a pity that no one
writes that way any more.
How perfectly eloquent to
refer to someone as a 'pe-
rfidious scoundrel.' Only a
Southerner could have come
up with such a devastat-
ingly genteel insult.
Not l11 headlines were as
direct. In November of 1963,
the DeFuniak Herald's main
headline did not refer to the
assassination of President
John F Kennedy. Instead
the headline referred to
Lyndon John-son's earlier
trip through the Panhandle
and only a short statement
decrying Kennedy's murder
appeared in a box- next to,:
thtJohrson stor.y- n, ,-.., .,
..Both papers reflected the
accepted; conventional wis-
dom of the day, changing
over the decades as old
prejudices gave way to more
enlightened thinking. For
instance, in 1910, Herald
articles praising Prohibition
were primed, as well as sto-
ries about horse thieving,
jail breaks and shootings
among local whites and
"Negroes."
An August 1910 edition of
The Breeze carried the
county's arrest report,
which was brief, but color-
ful. J.B. Sallas was con-
victed of second degree mur-
der and sentenced to 9 years
of "hard labor" at the state
pen. A man and woman,
both named Adkin-son were


convicted of lewd and las-
civious cohabitation and
fined $100 or six months in
jail. C.P. McRae was con-
victed of having "carnal
knowledge" but the report
did not say with whom. He
was fined $50 and J.T.
McCollough was charged
with "performing unneces-
sary farm labor on Sunday,"
but, fortunately was found
not guilty. In 1911, 18-year-
old Melvin Rivers got three
years hard labor for stealing
a horse in Laurel Hill and
selling it in Andalusia.
Over the years, some sto-
ries captured and held the
interest of local readers,
such as the murder of
Walton County Sheriff
Robert E. Gatlin in 1942. It
was first reported that a
black bootlegger named
Alfred E. Snipes had shot
Gatlin and wounded Deputy
Curt Miller during a strug-
gle at Snipes' home as the
man was being arrested.
Later, it would be revealed
that it was another man,
not Snipes, who was Gatlin's
,lleCr,, yet ,n, ,pne else vae s
ever charged. withl1,,e
slaying.
Not all big Walton County
stories were as tragic or
dark. Walton Well No. 1
struck oil six miles south-
east of Rock Hill in
November 1942. In 1963, it
was reported that Gulf
Power Company was seek-
ing to prevent CHELCO
from supplying power to the
Bendix Radar Installation.
In fact, the two companies
fought for some time over
territory. The matter even-
tually came to blows and
resembled the union wars of
the big cities.
Also in 1963, at least one
group was protesting the
proposed location of
Interstate 10. They wanted

it to pass just north of
DeFuniak to better access
U.S. 90, but the DOT's plan
to locate it just south of
town prevailed.
In 1971, fourth-generation
newspaper man Larry
Woodham and wife, Merle,
bought the Herald Breeze
from Howard Storrs, the son
of Breeze founder and pub-
lisher Royal W. Storrs. By
this time, the papers .had
already been combined for
many years. In addition to
the DeFuniak papers, the
Woodhams also owned and
operated The Florala News,
a paper that has been in
their family for the last 90
years. The Woodhams also
bought the Holmes County
Advertiser in Bonifay, the
Washington County Post in
Chipley, the Beach Bay
News in Bay County and
two newspapers in
Alabama, the News-Herald
in Chickasaw, and the Elba
Clipper.
Over time, the couple
divested themselves of all
but two publications, The
Fporala News lnvd the
Herald-Breeze.
These days, Larry's son,
Gary Woodham is co-owner
and operator of the Herald-
Breeze, although both Larry
and Merle keep a hand in
and continue to manage The
Florala News.
Larry Woodham says he
hopes to retire soon. "I've
said it before, but this time I
mean it."
However, printer's ink is
hard to remove once it's in
the blood. Just ask Gary
Woodham, who joined his
parents in the newspaper
business upon graduating
from Auburn University.

"The Herald-Breeze has
come a long way over the
last century and it's still
growing. We are
getting ready to
move into our new
S headquarters in
DeFuniak Springs
and we've just
made the switch to
full-color on our
front pages," he
said. "We have
some other plans in
mind, as well, over
the next couple of
years."
In an age where
most newspapers,
televisions and
\ 7 radio stations are
owned by huge,
faceless corpora-
tions, the DeFuniak
Springs Herald and
Beach Breeze
remain independ-
ent and family-
owned. In fact, the
S Woodham family is
headed into its
sixth generation as
Gary's son, Ben,
S prepares to follow
his father into the
family business.
That's good news
for Walton County
citizens who have
relied on the
Herald-Breeze for
the last 117 years.
It means that
Walton County will
continue to have its
own "Temple of
ut the Truth" well into the
ncw millennium.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 2, 2005


The Sun of

righteousness shall come

By Dr. Robert M. Jaye

I Malachi 4:2 these words are to be found: "The Sun of
Righteous shall arise with healing in His wings." It is proper
that the .Old Testament should conclude with the promise
that the Sunr'v6uld break through. The morning that broke
on Eden was-clear enough. It was without clouds. Yet with
mankind's sin the sky soon became darkened, and at last a
veil, with only.here a chink of blue sky left.
All through the dark succeeding centuries there have been
gleams of sunshine to let mankind know that the Sun was
still shining. -Every precious promise, every solemn type,
every holy life, that was bathed in supernatural beauty, was
like a shining forth of the Sun through the bars of human
darkness and sin. Evidently more was in store than Old
Testament saints had dreamed; and the time was coming
when the reign of type, symbol, and parable would be suc-
ceeded by the clear vision of the face of God in Jesus Christ.
Having the Scriptures, we live in the days of open vision.
Let us go forth rejoicing. We are to rejoice in every good
thing He gives us. As the young calves of the early spring
show their exuberant life in their capers and gambols in the
pastures, so let us give expression to our joy.
Rejoice because of the clear shining of God's love. Rejoice
because the darkness is past in Christ, and the trade Light
now shines. Rejoice because He is coming again, as surely
as He came once. Awaken, O our souls! Take musical in-
struments and sing. The Bridegroom is at hand! Listen!
Are those His chariot wheels reverberating through the air?
Even so, Lord Jesus, come quickly!

people that are tired of going to church and leaving the same way you
came in (hungry and hurting)? Do you feel like you are so far away from
God, in a time that you need Him the most? That maybe if you could just
get to Him, so many things in your life would change? Have you been hurt
by so called Christians, and now you won't even go into the house of God?
Do you have so many questions and no answers? There is a church you can
come to and not be judged bywhat you're wearing or what mistakes you've
made. Jesus says to come as you are, not come when you're perfect. If any

What It Really Takes To
Be A Christian

By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport ULMC
Sponsored by T.P. Motors
I have really been thinking lately about what we as
westerners perceive as Christianity.
To some Christianity is a little more than joining a
social club and ignore spiritual warfare.
Some think that water baptism is their entrance into
God's Kingdom, so much for the blood of Christ. If water
baptism could save, then all of the people in Noah's flood
were saved and Noah was lost.
Some think that a membership vow means that if
things don't go to suit them, he or she can forget about
being steadfast and immovable in faith. Remember, the
very persons that have exasperated you in church do so
because we lack maturity.
Some people think nothing of leaving 15% after a good
meal, and then protest vehemently about Biblical tith-
ing (10%)- which makes more sense?
When a service lasts a bit long we get hot under the
collar because "our time" was infringed upon, so much
for the love of God's Word! However, that same person
will stay overtime for a ball game-which is more impor-
tant?
-"'We walk'up to complete strangers wiho are buying a
high priced item that we know they can buy elsewhere
cheaper, yet we refuse to share the greatest bargain that
ever a person could divest"Christ"seems a bit selfish, don't
you think?
We feel uncomfortable if the service seems a little more
emotional than usual, but we grow hoarse after a foot-
ball game, and are quite rude at the referees,seems a bit
two-faced huh?
We get mad at the church/preacher and refuse to sup-
port the church, yet we will get angry at paying taxes,
and pay them anyway. Disobedience is still disobedience,
if you are a member of a church-until your member-
ship is removed, you are obligated to give.
We think that we really sacrifice for our family by pro-
viding the best money can buy, yet we provide them with
poor examples of faithfulness to God- I wonder who they
will be like when they grow up?
We feel comfortable and quite brazen in running down
the church, pastor, or some fellow struggler and yet claim
to be a Christian-are we really?
One individual refused to attend a church because they
heard that a person was an ex-criminal, or an ex-gay, yet
they think nothing about their own lust, or judgmental
attitude, and think nothing of sitting next to an adul-
terer "oh well"-such as were some of you Paul said, but
you are forgiven.
It is really amazing what a little repentance can do!
Sunday School at 8:45 a.m.; worship at 9:45 a.m.; Sun-
day evening at 6 p.m.; Wednesday at 6 p.m. WZEP 7:05-
7:30 a.m. Sunday morning. Stop by here on your way to
eternity!

Braves Baseball Outing Planned

Freeport Little League will sponsor a trip to an At-
lanta Braves baseball game on June 12, 2005. The trip
is being sponsored for all 12-year-old baseball/softball
players who are playing their last year of little league.
This is the first of what is planned to become an an-
nual event. FLL has already received donations to pay
for a chartered bus and to purchase the game tickets.
However, they are in need of sponsors to help feed three
meals to approximately 40 boys and girls. In the event
that funds are left over, they will be placed in an ac-
count to be used for the trip next year.
To help sponsor this event, those interested are asked
to mail a check made payable to Freeport Little.League,

Sports Information on the Web

BY PATRICK CASEY
Sports information on the Internet has become a major
business, as well as a resource for people seeking data on
sporting activities around the globe..Nearly every collegiate
campus has a website that includes an athletics page con-
taining information on every sport in which the university
participates. Professional leagues have their own sites with
links to all of the teams included.
Locally, OWC has its own site as do other area schools
and colleges. The Florida High School Athletic Association
has its own website that provides information on member-
ship, eligibility requirements,, playoff brackets, and past
champions in all their sanctioned sporting events.
The internet also gives everyone the ability to listen to
sporting events all over the country using Broadcast.com, a
company that supports radio broadcasts from high school,
college, and professional venues. Using Broadcast.com, a
Michigan fan can listen to the Wolverines play Indiana over
his computer in football, basketball, or baseball. If your fa-
vorite team isn't on television and you wish to know how
they are doing, Broadcast.com can bring the game to you.
If you are interested in how local athletes are contribut-
ing to their current college squad, there is no easier way to
find out then the internet.
The tfllowing are a few websites that provide informt~-
tion on local athletes and organizations: .

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 golf course at NAS
Whiting Field north of Milton
is not the easiest to find but
is in outstanding shape right
now. The 18-hole course has
wide fairways and consistent
greens that can lead to low
scores for a steady golfer. It
is open to the public and a
hidden gem in Santa Rosa
County.
Florida Caverns Golf
Course in Marianna is a 9-
hole course that features
raised greens and is located
just north of the city. The
course can be quite challeng-
ing, but doesn't have a lot of
grass on its fairways. The
course is one of the easier to
walk, as its layout is very
compact. One downside I
found was that the driving
range touches three different
holes and'ca. leave a golfer
having to search amid the
range balls for his own ball.
Shoal River Golf Course in
Crestview is currently closed
for renovations and will likely

Free Kids
Fishing Clinic
SThe Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC), the Florida
Foundation for Responsible
Angling (FFRA), and Half
Hitch Tackle present a FREE
Kids' Fishing Clinic for chil-
dren of all ages at the Dan
Russell Fishing Pier on Sat-
urday, June 4 from 9 a.n. to
1 p.m.
,' This free clinic allows
y. oung people to learn the
basics in environmental
stewardship, fishing ethics,
angling skills, and safety. In
addition, environmental dis-
plays will provide kids with
a unique chance to experi-
ence Florida's marine life
!firsthand.
Local' sponsors are being
confirmed. If you or your
Company would like to help
,sponsor this event or if you
,would like to volunteer at the
clinic, call Tom Putnam at
:.(850) 234-2621 or Gail
Gainey at (850) 488-6058.


not open again until next
year. The course, which is
located about three miles
south of the interstate exit in
Crestview, is one of the more
challenging, but wetter
courses to play after heavy
rains this spring. With Shoal
River closed and Foxwood
playing on temporary greens,
golfers in Crestview may
have to travel to find a fully
functional golf course for
some time to come.
Sunny Hills Golf Course is
located about 15 miles south
of Chipley and has 27 holes
on its premises. The course
requires, straight tee shots as
the fairways are fairly nar-
row and would probably not
be a great place for a begin-
ner to start a career. Priced
just under $30 for a round, it
is another solid golfing choice.
The Moors Golf Course,
which is located south of
Milton near the Avalon Bou-
levard exit on Interstate 10,
just finished hosting the Blue
Angels Classic less than a
month ago and is currently in
prime shape to play. The
links style course is very
open, but has lots of bunkers
and undulating hills to offer
challenges. Putting is a true
art form on this course, but
the greens roll as true as any
'Tn the'area. '

Sports news in review


By CHUCK HINSON
Gators claim SEC title:
The Florida Gators baseball
team scored four ripns in the
ninth inning to beat Vander-
bilt and take home the win
and the title.
The win .clinched the SEC
title for Florida and the
Vandy loss knocked the team
out of any chances for ad-.
vance play.
Raikkonen wins in Mon-
aco: Kimi Raikkonen got the
big win at the Monaco Grand
Prix last Sunday. It was his
fourth formula car career
win.
Nick Heidfield came in
second and Mark Webber
followed in third place.
Points leader Fernando
Alonso came in fourth.
Junqueira wins Mon-
terey: In Monterey, Mexico,
Bruno Junqueira took the
lead in the 67th lap and never
looked back until he crossed
the victory-line.
Only 10 of the 19 cars that
started, finished the 76-lap
race.

Creamer makes history
at tournament: Paula
Creamer, not only won the
LPGA Sybase Classic Tour-
nament in Rochelle, NY, she
also made history by becom-
ing the second-youngest win-
ner in the LPGA history.
At 18-years-old, she took
the victory, but could not
celebrate long because of
having to return home for her
high school graduation.
Creamer closed with a 1-
under 71 on the Wykagyl
Country Club course.
The last time a female won
a major LPGA tournament at
this age, was in 1952 when
Marlene Hagge won .just
fourteen days after her 18th


birthday.
Myskina falls in first
round: For the first time in
the history of-the French
Open for both male or female,
the defending champion,
Anastasia Myskina, lost out
in the first round of the
French Open to Maria San-
chez Lorenzo. A shocked
crowd watched the 23-year-
old Russian tennis star has
she struggled and eventually
lost 6-4, 4-6, 6-0 to the 18-
year-old Spanish player.
Patrick qualifies for Indy
500 race: Only the fourth
time in the history of the In-
dianapolis 500, a woman
qualified for the race. Danica
Patrick won in her heat and
then was positioned in fourth
place.
Patrick has recorded the
fastest lap speed in practice
with speeds of 229.880 mph.

Legislation proposes two-
year ban: Sen. John
McCain, Rep. Tom Davis and
Rep. Elijah Cummings are
all standing behind the lat-
est war on steroid use in the
professional arena. The
three have joined forces to
punish steroid users in th.e
four major American sports.
In the proposal, a two-year
ban for first time positive
drug testers would be imple-
mented under the new legila-
tion. This proposal would put
the sports and their players
under the jurisdiction of the
White House drug czar.
The proposed legislation
would also go a step further
and put a lifetime ban on any
player that is brought up on a
second round of offense in the
four major sports. The mat-
ter will have to go before all
houses of government and
then be signed by the Presi-


dent before it is considered
legal and enforced.
Tampa gets fourth Super
Bowl: The Super Bowl is
headinig'Back to Tampa'in
2009. The city was selected to
host the event once again,
beating out three other final-
ists that included Atlanta,
Houston and Miami.
Officials siad that the city
offered a more favorable
package. Many of those
same traits was what got
them the games in 1984,
1991 and 2001..- .
Wheldon wins Indy 500:
Despite, an avid try by Dan-
ica Patrick, v.who for the his-
tory books was "the first fe-
male to ever hold in lead in
the Indy 500, Englishman
Dan "Dapper" Wheldon won
the race. He took the lead
*and the win after Patrick
struggled in the last laps
'with refueling.
SThe win was th fd fth in
five years for the British
driver who took ifit'iahapolis
by storm. Though it was re-
ported he was in the hi:adus
of the first female Indly acer,
he was thrilled to have taken
the lead and.the trophy.
Johnson makes history:
Jimmie Johnison is heating
the tracks up and racking up
more points, as the Nextel
Cup leader wins his third
straight Coca-Cola 600. Un-
like the past few wins,
Johnson had a much bigger
struggle winning this year as
he had to come from fourth
place and snap the line at the
finish to beat out lap-leader
Bobby LaBonte.
LaBonte came in second,
followed by Carl Edwards,
Jeremy Mayfield, Ryan New-
man, Greg Biffle, Martin
Truex, Dale Jarrett, Ken
Schrader and Rusty Wallace.

Sheriff gets green


light for traffic unit


SINCE 1995, CONDITIONS have favored above-normal other busy hurricane season, which began June 1, is fore-
Atlantic hurricane seasons. Storms impacting this part of cast for 2005. Last year's four storms that impacted Florida
the United States since then are shown on this' map. An- are not included on this historical map.




Another busy hurricane



season expected


BY TLW4A LARSEN

"The main uncertainty in
this outlook is not whether
the season will lle boe Ioi -
mal, but how much above
normal it will be," said the
scientists who produced this
year's hurricane forecast.
Every year at the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration's (NOAA)
Climate Prediction Center
(CPC), Hurricane Research
Division (HRD), and Na-
tional Hurricane Center
(NHC) scientists study the
climatic conditions, crunch
the numbers, and come up
with a forecast.
This year's forecast is no
better than last, when four
hurricanes struck Florida in
an eight-week period. NOAA
is calling for a 70 percent
chance of an above-normal
hurricane season, a 20 per-
cent chance of a near-normal
season, and only a 10 percent
chance of a below-normal
season. The outlook calls for
12-15 tropical storms, with 7-
9 becoming hurricanes, and


3-5 of these becoming major
hurricanes.
NOAA thinks the vast ma-
jority of the tropical storms
and hurricanes -in 206 wi1
form during August-October.
It is typical for above-normal
seasons to see these storms
form over the tropical Atlan-
tic and Caribbean and then
generally track westward to-
wards the Caribbean and the
United States as they
strengthen.
Although NOAA says it is
currently not possible to con-
fidently predict the number
or intensity of land-falling
hurricanes, and whether or
not a given locality will be
impacted, Dr. William Gray
at Colorado State University
does produce an annual fore-
cast.
Gray's forecast sets the
probability of at least one
major hurricane making
landfall on the Gulf Coast
from the Florida Panhandle
westward to Brownsville at
41 percent (average for last
century is 30 percent).
Gray's prediction is close to


NOAA's, with Gray calling
for 13 named storms, with
seven becoming hurricanes.
For Weather Channel watch-
ers, Gray is expectifig tZ6tal
of 65 days with a named
storm somewhere out there
in the Atlantic basin.
This year's storm names
are Arlene, Bret, Cindy, Den-
nis, Emily, Franklin, Gert,
Harvey, Irene, Jose, Katrina,
Lee, Maria, Nate, Ophelia,
Philippe, Rita, Stan, Tammy,
Vince and Wilma.
Walton County's public in-
formation department has
produced a new hurricane
guide, which includes infor-
mation on hurricane pre-
paredness, evacuation
routes, and out of area radio
stations that will receive
Walton County news re-
leases.
After many residents
evacuated last year for Hur-
ricane Ivan, a common com-
plaint received by the county
was the lack of information
available about our local area
in the news media in other
cities.


As a result, Public Informa-
tion Coordinator Sara
Comander contacted radio
stations in cities such as
Dothan, Birmingham, Mont-
gomery and Tallahassee, and
has compiled a list of the ra-
dio stations which have
agreed to air Walton County
news releases during an
emergency such as a hurri-
cane.
The list of cities and radio
stations is included in the
new hurricane guide, and is
also available on a wallet-
sized card a citizen can take
along when evacuating.

The hurricane guide and
the cards will be available
soon at all county branch li-
braries, city halls, the
Choctaw Beach fire station,
the South Walton Court-
house Annex, the extension
agent's office and the Red
Cross office in DeFuniak
Springs and the county pub-
lic information office on Col-
lege Avenue; the guide only
will be available at the tour-
ist development office.


By DOTTY NIST

As we speak, the Walton
County Sheriffs Department
is setting up a five-officer
traffic unit that will focus on
the main routes south of the
Bay.
On May 24, the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners voted unani-
mously to roll forward almost
$316,000 in funding for the
unit and related equipment,
and to distribute the funds to
the sheriffs department for
this purpose.
Capt. Danny Glidewell had
first come to the commission-
ers in late March to ask for
funding assistance to create
the unit. The request was in
response to recent height-
ened concerns about danger-
ous intersections south of the
Bay, which had resulted in
the posting of deputies at the
CR-395 and CR-283 intersec-
tions on U.S. 98. The station-
ing of the deputies at those
locations continues.
Glidewell pointed out that
there are additioiial roadway
sections that were equally
dangerous and that the
sheriffs office did not have


enough deputies to post them
at those also.
He also brought up the
problem that the sheriffs of-
fice lacks any traffic equip-
ment such as signs and traf-
fic cones. Any such equip-
ment had to be borrowed
from county public works or
the state.
The unit will consist of one
sergeant and four deputies.
Traffic equipment, including
cones, barricades, arrow
boards and other items, will
be included in the funding for
the unit, as will vehicles for
the officers.
Purposes of the unit will in-
clude promotion of traffic
safety, enhancement of traf-
fic flow on main corridors and
feeder routes, and enforce-
ment of state traffic statutes
and county ordinances re-
lated to traffic.
The unit will concentrate
on U.S. 98, U.S. 331 south of
Freeport, CR-30A and Scenic
Gulf Drive. However, it will
have the capability to move
to other locations in an emer-
gency situation.

Handicapped accessibility may


be issue for beach homes


By DOTTYNIST

In south Walton County,
private homes rented out to
vacationers have never been
required to meet federal
regulations for handicapped
accessibility and questions
have been raised about that
situation.
Martha Heller and Don
Crim of Walton County's
Americans with Disabilities
Act Committee brought the
matter up at the May 24
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners
meeting.
A number of local real es-
tate companies offering
homes for short-term rental
advertise that they have
properties providing "handi-
cap accessibility" or refer to
them as "handicapped
friendly."
However, according to
Crim, out of over 12,000
short-term rental units south
of the Bay, not one is truly


"ADA (Americans with Dis-
abilities Act) accessible."
The act sets construction
requirements for public
accommodations and commer-
icial facilities for purposes of
providing accessibility for the
handicapped.
Heller commented that the
act does not reference homes


used as vacation rentals.
However, she noted that
"places of public accommoda-
tion" are included in the leg-
islation. She made the case
that these homes could come
under the regulations under
that category.
She provided a letter from
R. Alexander Acosta, assis-


tant attorney general for the
U.S. Department of Justice.
In the letter, Acosta was of
the opinion that whether or
not the homes operated more
like an individual home or
more like a hotel or motel
would be an indication

See ISSUE 16C


S.. .. .....

HOMES BEING constructed in south Walton County for vacation rental have so far not
had to comply with Americans with Disabilities Act requirements. Now some in the com-
munity are asking whether that should change.


THE WALTON COUNTY Sheriffs Office is proceeding to
set up a new traffic unit that will focus on main routes south
of the bay, including U.S. 98, CR-30A, U.S. 331 south of
Freeport, and Scenic Gulf Drive.



Seven beach accesses now

handicapped accessible


By DOTTY NIST
People with physical handi-
caps will now have an easier
time enjoying Walton
County's beaches, with seven
specially-constructed public
dune walkovers now avail-
able for their use.
On May 24, Walton County
Americans with Disabilities
Act (ADA) Committee mem-
bers Martha Heller and Don
Crim visited one of those
walkovers to publicize their
availability.
Dozens of dune walkovers
maintained by the South
Walton Tourist Development
Council (TDC) recently had
to be rebuilt due to impacts


of Hurricane Ivan. The TDC
was able to rebuild some of
those with wheelchair ramps
and landings for the handi-
capped. The organization
hopes to increase the number
of walkovers that are spe-
cially equipped in this man-
ner.
The seven dune walkovers
featuring handicapped acces-
sibility are located at the fol-
lowing beach accesses: Inlet
Beach, Dune Allen, Ed
Walline in Santa Rosa Beach,
Grayton Dunes, Santa Clara,
One Seagrove Place, and
Sugar Dunes.

ACCESS


FROM FRONT


By DOTTY NIST

A cadre of local volunteers
is dedicated to helping
beachgoers take away only
pleasant memories.
Not only are they armed
with helpful beach safety lit-
erature and water contain-
ers, they're trained to explain
the warning flag system,
point out a dangerous rip cur-
rent, and describe the simple
steps to follow if you are
caught in one.
May 25, the Wednesday
preceding Memorial Day,
marked the spring 2005 kick-
off for the Coastal Corps. Vol-
unteers met on Grayton
Beach for instructions on
educating beachgoers about
safety from program coordi-
nator Erin LaGrosse of the
South Walton Tourist Devel-
opment Council (TDC.)
Brad Pickel, a marine sci-
entist and beach manage-
ment director for the TDC,
provided information on
identifying rip currents.
Among those present were
Bruce residents Laura and
Brittany Sparks. The
mother-daughter team has


been involved with the
Coastal Corps for about a
year.
New to the Corps this
spring are Walton County's
beauty contest winners, Miss
Walton County Ashley
Nance, Teen Miss Walton
County Haley Ates, Junior
Miss Walton County Devero
Bogart, Little Miss Walton
County Melodiana Dier, and
Young Miss Walton County
Savanna Beaver.
Walton County's beach
safety campaign centers on
Seemore the Safety Crab, a
cartoon spokesperson devel-
oped by the TDC to play a
role with beach safety simi-
lar to that of Smokey Bear
with fire prevention.
Seemore appears on the lit-
erature and in print, radio
and television ads.

A score of safety ambassa-.
dors is participating in the
Coastal Corps program,
which was initiated last year.
That equals about one volun-
teer for each mile of beach on
the Walton County coastline,
but more participation is
needed.:


WALTON COUNTY Coastal Corps volunteers Laura and
Brittany Sparks hand out beach safety pamphlets to sun-
loving visitors Jennifer De Laureal and Kathryn Blount on

190, Florida Statutes. A copy of .the
Petition is on file and available for public
inspection and/or copying at the Office of
the Clerk of Court, Walton County
Courthouse, 571 U.S. Highway 90,
DeFuniak Springs, Florida, between the
hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. except
on weekends and holidays.
The information presented at this hear-
ing will be used to afford the Petitioner,

government, and the general public, a fair
and adequate opportunity to appear and ia o
present oral and written comments
regarding the establishment of the e
District. If adopted, the ordinance will Seagrove
establish the NatureWalk Community
Development District, name its initial de 30
Board of Supervisors and designate the
land to be serviced by the District. Gulf of Me xics
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 DF~i. 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 theprovision of infrastructure to serve community develop-
ments subject to state and local regulatory requirements governing the lawful use and development
of the property. Establishment of a district pursuant to Chapter 190, Florida Statutes, is not a devel-
opment order under Chapter 380, Florida Statutes. All planning, permitting and other regulatory
requirements pertaining to development within the land area will be in accordance with general and
special law, and the Walton County Comprehensive Plan.
The Board will comply with section 190.005(2), Florida Statutes, in conducting the public hearing
on whether to establish the District by ordinance. The purpose of this hearing is to consider the
relationship of the petition as submitted by the Petitioner to the six factors listed in section
190.005(1)(e), Florida Statutes.
A statement of estimated regulatory costs ("SERC") was prepared by Rizzetta & Company, Inc.,
in compliance with Section 120.541, Florida Statutes, as required by section 190.005, Florida
Statutes. The complete text of the SERC is contained as Exhibit 8 to the Petition. By way of sum-
mary, the SERC estimates that the principal entities likely to be effected by the ordinance are the
State of Florida, Walton County, Florida, and the District, and describes the type of individuals most
affected by the ordinance as the landowners within the District. The SERC estimates that establish-
ment and enforcement costs to the above-described entities will be modest and are concurrently
budgeted or not burdensome; and, that there will be little to no effect on state and local revenues
from the establishment of the District. Further, the SERC estimates that certain development-
related transactional costs incurred would occur regardless of whether the District was established
and are voluntarily assumed if at all by and through individuals or entities owning or purchasing
property in the District. Finally, the SERC concludes that the establishment's affect on small busi-
riess 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.

Boyd secures

funding for

Walton

beaches
Congressman Allen Boyd
(D-North Florida), a member
of the House Appropriations
Committee, secured
$500,000 for Walton County
beach renourishment in-
cluded in the Energy and
Water Development Appro-
priations Bill (HR 2419) for
fiscal year 2006. The Army
Corps of Engineers will use
these funds to accelerate the
beach renourishment project
to protect several threatened
homes that are dangerously
close to the high tide line be-
cause of ongoing erosion.
"I am so pleased I was able
to secure this crucial funding
for our beaches," said Con-
gressman Boyd. "Beach
health is critical to the eco-
nomic and environmental
well-being of the Gulf Coast,
and this funding will allow
for much-needed beach
renourishment following last
year's devastating hurricane
season."
The beaches of Walton
County receive over 500,000
tourists a year and generate
hundreds of millions of dol-
lars in economic activity. Pre-
viously, Congressman Boyd
secured $300,000 to begin the
studies necessary to conduct
beach renourishment on Wal-
ton County's beaches.
"Perhaps the most attrac-
tive feature for tourists com-
ing to North Florida is the
beaches," stated Congress-
man Boyd. "These award
winning powder-soft beaches
rival any in the world and
attract millions of people
from all over the country. The
money provided for beach
renourishment in this bill
will help restore our beaches,
and I will continue to work
in Congress to ensure that
beach renourishment is ad-
equately funded."



"WC Sheriff's
Department
find remains of
missing man
On May 27, Walton County
Sheriff's Office found the re-
mains of John M. Kennan,
55, in the dunes area just
east of Sandestin.
A search of the area began
after Kennan's vehicle was
found on Sandestin property.
Kennan had been missing
since' May 4.
Cause and manner of death
are undetermined at this
time. The investigation is
ongoing pending result of the
autopsy.

TRAFFIC from front
ciated with the unit will pro-
vide for quick response to
bottlenecks and problem ar-
eas.
Funding to allow for the
creation of the unit during
the current fiscal year will
come from the Fine and For-
feiture Fund.
Following the final ap-
proval of the unit on May 24,
Glidewell said the Walton
County Sheriffs Office would
move to set it up immedi-
ately. He said the sheriffs
office had already started
looking at resumes to fill the
positions.

ISSUE from front
whether they would fall un-
der ADA requirements.
Heller pointed out that,
similar to hotel and motel
units, many of the homes are
booked through a central res-
ervations department, depos-
its are required, there is
shared advertising, maid ser-
vice, and linens and other
items are provided.
She raised the issue of dis-
crimination against the
handicapped if homes being
constructed for vacation
rental were not being re-
quired to meet ADA require-
ments.
She suggested that the
county set a procedure to de-
termine whether homes were
being constructed for short-
term rental purposes, as part
of the approval process.
"Walton County has a
chance to be a leader here,"
Heller urged. She added that
building in handicapped ac-
cessibility need not be diffi-
cult and adds to the value of
a home.
"What would be the proce-
dure to set this wheel in mo-
tion?" asked District 4 Com-
missioner Ro Cuchens.
County Attorney David
Hallman offered to look at
the issue. "We'll do whatever
this board addresses us to
do," he said.
"I'd like us to look into it,"
Cuchens said.
Heller offered Hallman the
'' -~ista ce of her committee
members.

Oliver's garden thrives at the beach

1Ell


CREWS' ROSE GARDEN IS HIS PRIDE AND JOY In fdll bloom
now, passersbys often stop to admire these healthy roses growing
nearly right at the Gulf of Mexico shoreline.


-~

INLET BEACH RESIDENT OLIVER CREWS is nearly hidden be-
hind the giant asparagus ferns that flourish in his garden.


S ..... : .. ._ -. .
THIS LOOKS LIKE DRIFTWOOD, but it is a reminder of a devastating fire that
swept through the eastern end of south Walton in the 1980's. When the coastal
scrub grew back, dead pine trunks like this one stuck up conspicuously along CR-
30A, until they came down for new developments like Rosemary Beach.


*'! "-


"WHEN I FIRST PLANTED THESE PETUNIAS, I would come out
every morning and count the blooms. Now, there are too many to
count," Crews said. In the winter, pansies will probably take their
place.
BY TIANA LARSEN

Oliver Crews, who comes from a farming family in Samson, Alabama and has a
degree in horticulture from Auburn University, didn't believe folks when they said "you
can't sprout a pea in that sand."
"They made a big mistake," said the eighty-five-year-old Crews, who spends some
part of every day working in his garden, which is growing in plain white sand just a
short half-block from the Gulf of Mexico.
"It's more or less therapy for me, and I really believe it is the best thing for arthritis,"
Crews observed. "I'm doing pretty good for my age, don't you think?" he asked.
It's a year around job, because Crews changes out the annuals with the seasons, rotat-
ing through pansies, geraniums, petunias, bougainvillea, whatever strikes his fancy. He's
impressed with the variety of ornamentals and herbs that are available these days.
Crews is especially proud of his roses, which are in full bloom and thriving, in spite
,of the sandy soil and the salty air from the sea.
Not many days pass that someone on their way to the beach doesn't stop to talk about
the garden. And back when he had several positively huge sago palms, he refused an
offer from a potential buyer who wanted to dig them all up.
"Not for sale," Crews told him, but he did give him a few of the smaller ones.
During his college studies, Crews spent a year in Paris studying. He didn't have a
particular career in mind, he said, he just liked plants, and his family have always been
farmers.
After college, Crews went to work for the State Department and worked in Mexico,
where the bougainvillea is "fabulous" and many tropical plants flourish.
Among other duties, he was an airport inspector, making sure everyone's feet were
sanitized during a campaign to contain an outbreak of "la fiebre aftosa," or foot and
mouth disease, which affects cattle another animals with hooves.
When a plane Crews was supposed to board crashed on its way to Guadalajara, kill-
ing 28 people, his family asked him to come home.
Back at the farm, "I heard you could make a lot of money growing gladiolas, so I
planted 10 acres of them," he said. It was a disaster, Crews explained, because they all
bloomed at one time and he couldn't market them.
After considering how much money flower shops charged for gladiolas; Crews opened
his own shop in Opp, Alabama, running it for seven or eight years. Then he went to
work for Allied Department Stores (Jordan Marsh, Burdines, etc.) traveling around to
many cities supervising sales promotions.
Although the farm in Alabama is still owned by his family, Crews retired to Inlet
Beach about 25 years ago, buying a lot and moving a house onto it. "I've been here ever
since," he said.
In those days, there were only a few other houses, and he had a panoramic view of the
Gulf of Mexico. In the 1980's, a fire burned up his whole garden and damaged his home.
"It was the worst thing we ever had here," he said. Three fire trucks surrounded his
house and saved it by spraying it with water, but the garden was lost.
These days the garden grows in the shadow of multi-million dollar homes, and the
view is greatly reduced, but Crews doesn't mind too much, and the garden doesn't seem
to either.
"And that's about the story of my life," he concluded.


t I'' -.* iH
:: : ,,.

THIS COLOSSAL 'HENS AND CHICKS'PLANT is only a year
or two old. It must be evidence of a true green thumb belonging
to Inlet Beach gardener Oliver Crews.


WHEN CREWS FIRST MOVED TO INLET BEACH, his sandy lot
had a few scrub oaks, "the size of my thumb." He culled some out
and left the rest to grow, shown here shading ivy and ferns.
