DeFuniak Springs Garden


Club wins national award


The DeFuniak Springs
Garden Club won "The His-


toric Gardens Award" pre-
sented by National Garden


THIS MARKER DENOTES the creation of the reading
garden next to the Walton-DeFuniak Library.


Clubs, Inc. for its work at the
DeFuniak Springs Library.
The award was presented at
the National Garden Club
Convention held in Milwau-
kee, WI, May 20-22, 2005.

The "Historic Gardens
Award" is a competition for
garden clubs throughout the
United States who have cho-
sen to restore, preserve or
create an appropriate land-
scape at a historical building.
The DeFuniak Springs
Garden Club created "The
DeFuniak Springs Library
Reading Garden" on the
south and east walls of the
DeFuniak Library (est. 1887)
where no landscape enhance-
ments had previously ex-
isted. There was just an un-
sightly sandy, erosion-

plagued area prior to the club
developing the "garden".
Club member Barbara Allen
designed and spearheaded
the project.
Since the project started in
2003, almost every club
member has helped in some
area of its' growth. The Wal-
ton County Master Gardener
group has endorsed the
project for its educational
component and several of its
members are active in help-
ing to maintain the garden,
along with the garden club's
members. The city of DeFu-
niak has also been very sup-
portive in providing man-
power, installing the brick
paver pathways, and irriga-
tion work.
The project was highly
praised by the National Gar-
den Club, Inc. for the appro-
priate choice of using native
plants that would have been
common at the turn of the
century. They also were im-
pressed with the choice of
pathway materials that
complimented the existing
structure of the historic
building.

The project was praised for
its educational value and its
compatibility to its library
location. The club was also
praised for theNaLive Plant
Sale and Education Day held
each year at the library.
The club was awarded
$100, along with an award
certificate. The money will be
spent to further develop the
reading garden. The club
plans on offering educational
tours through the native
plant garden this year.

Wanda Thonias Smith has
led groundbreaking trends
for women in the tri-city area
once again.
Many area residents re-
member Smith as. the first
female police officer in Flo-
rala, back in 1975--'Now
thirty years later, Smith is
adding to this distinction for
woman as the first female
mayor in Walton County.
Smith didn't realize that she
was the first female mayor in
Walton County until after
the elections were over. She
just never thought about it
when she was running for
the office.
In March 2005, Paxton
Town Council accepted a let-
ter of resignation from pre-
vious Mayor Mark Warren.
Warren had been elected dur-
ing the'last October elections
and held office less than five
months before tendering his
resignation. Upon accep-
tance of Warren's resigna-
tion, Council Chairman
Bobby Kemp was appointed
to temporarily fill the


mayor's vacancy until a spe-
cial election could be held.
Smith said she didn't have
a clue if she had a chance of
winning the election or not,
but when she heard that the
town needed a new mayor,
she decided to run for the of-
fice. She said she felt that
this would give her the op-
portunity to give something
back to her native commu-
nity.
After approximately 60
days, the special election was
held in Paxton on Tuesday,
May 24, with two candidates
running for the position.
First cousins, Wanda Tho-
mas Smith opposed former
mayor Hayward Thomas.
She said the competition did
not cause any bad blood
within the family, as no mat-
ter which way the votes were
cast, there would "still be a
Thomas as mayor," which
was okay with the cousins.
Smith noted that if Thomas
had won the election, then
"I'd have hugged his neck
and wished him well."
Smith won the election


against Thomas by a vote of
51 to 42. There are a total of
441 registered voters in Pax-
ton. A total of 87 votes were
cast at the polls with six ab-
sentee voters. Smith won
the election by nine votes in
the special election.
On Friday, June 3, follow-
ing a motion by councilman
Joe Melton, the Paxton coun-
cil unanimously voted to ac-
cept the election votes cast in
Paxton. Amidst a crowd of
viewers, Judge David Green
gave the oath of office to
Smith. Family members,
residents and employees of
Paxton, council members
and Walton County employ-
ees were on hand to welcome
Smith to her new office.
Smith's daughter, Amanda
Smith Long, participated in
the swearing-in ceremonies
as she held the Bible for
Smith to swear her oath.
As Smith officially became
Paxton's mayor, she noted,
"I've got a lot of studying-up
on things and want to sit
back and look and see what
can be done. Growth is com-


ing to Paxton. I will work
with everyone during this
time of transition for the
town. It's an honor and privi-

Church.


St. Agatha's Episcopal

Church receives

preservation grant


By BRUCE COLLIER
St. Agatha's Episcopal
Church has received the
third in a series of grants
from the Florida Department
of State's Bureau of Historic
Preservation. The grants are
to be used to restore and pre-
serve.the historic church and
vicarage house.
The current, non-matching
grant is in the amount of
$226,025. Grant auLthr and
administrator Melinda
Henderson said that the
grant period will begin in
July of 2005, and extend for
two years.
Funds from the grant will
be spent to restore the
stained glass windows,
weatherproof or replace se-
lected doors and windows,
remove vinyl, siding, replace
rotten lap siding, repaint the
church and vicarage, and re-
store the crenellations on the


bell tower and baptistry
apse. The latter was blown
off in a hurricane in the
1930s.
The chancel apse of St.
Agatha's contains a passion
flower design stained glass
window, donated by Bishop
Weed in 1900. The baptismal
apse contains a stained glass
window, "Christ at Prayer,"
dated around 1914. The
church contains 20 other
stained glass windows.
Two previous grants were
used to restore the founda-
tions and roofs of both
church and vicarage.
St. Agatha's is a Gothic
Revival style church, which
has been holding services
since 1896. Both church and
vicarage are part of the De
Funiak Springs Historic Dis-
trict, listed in the National
Register of Historic Places.

School board addresses issues for coming school year


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County School
Board met at the Tivoli Ad-
ministrative Complex on
Monday, June 6, to discuss
various items on the agenda
for the upcoming school year.
The board approved the
ratification of the district's
contract with Walton Acad-
emy as a charter school and


the district will again provide
transportation and food ser-
vice for the students for the
2005-06 school year.
The board also approved
trips for Paxton High
School's boys basketball
team to attend Troy State
University's basketball camp
on June 17-19 as well as
Freeport High School's var-


sity and junior varsity foot-
ball schedules for the upcom-
ing season.
Sharpe, Inc. was given an
eight-day extension to com-
plete work at Emerald Coast
Middle School due to inclem-
ent weather in April that
pushed back the time table
on finishing the project.
Elliott-Marshall-Innes, the


architectural firm working
on the design for Paxton
High School's new gymna-
sium, submitted a new cost
and architectural fee pro-
posal due to the increase in
the size of the facility from
18,000 gross square feet to
22,846 gross square feet. In
addition to the size increase,
the need for covered walk-


ways leading to the stand-
alone gymnasium was not
figured into the original
plans. The project has
swelled from an initial cost
of $2.4 million to a $3.1 mil-
lion price tag as the firm
works on the final plans to
submit to the board for ap-
proval.
Superintendent Carlene


Anderson stated that she ex-
pects the district to receive
grades for each of the
district's schools from the
Florida Department of Edu-
cation in the next two weeks.

The next scheduled meet-
ing of the Walton County
School Board will be on Mon-:
day, June 20, at 6 p.m.

Free

credit

reports
A credit record can deter-
mine a lot about a person's
financial future, from how
much credit you get to
whether you are offered a job.
That's why Florida's Chief
Financial Officer Tom
Gallagher is urging Florid-
ians to take advantage of. a
new law starting June 1 that
lets consumers get free an-
nual credit reports.
"Floridians should care-
fully check their credit re-
ports for errors and incom-
plete information," stated
Gallagher, who is spearhead-
ing efforts to promote finan-
cial literacy among Florid-
ians of all ages and economic
levels. "Identity theft can be
stopped early by a thorough
examination of the details in
a credit report. Good credit is
an asset worth protecting."
Gallagher urged citizens to
take advantage of the free
annual credit reports now
available to Florida consum-
ers. They can be requested
from each of the three major
credit reporting services un-
der the federal Fair and Ac-
curate Credit Transactions
Act. Once each year Florid-
ians get to review their credit
reports at no charge due to
this change in the law that
went into effect last week.
Credit reports contain nu-
merous types of information
- details about debt such as
mortgages, consumer loans,
credit cards and bankrupt-
cies. Requesting a report will
give the consumer the oppor-
tun4ty to find-;an. accura-
cies and correct them. MVort-
gage lenders and credit card
issuers rely on credit reports
to make credit decisions and
to assign interest rates. Now
insurance companies and
potential employers are us-
ing the reports to decide
whether to issue insurance or
make job offers.
Starting June 1, Floridians
can get free reports online at
www.annualcreditreport.com
or can download the form to
mail in. Call toll-free 1-877-
322-8228 to obtain free re-
ports by mail. Citizens may
also purchase their credit
score for a fee of $6.95 when
they request their free an-
nual credit report.



That


Ragged


Old Flag
By Mary Ann Whiddon

That ragged old flag waving
over the trees,
reminds us of the battles
she's seen!
She's been to Iraq and
Afghanistan,
And flown over Korea and
Vietnam.

We've seen her fly on Pearl
Harbor too,
and in Desert Storm she
fought so true!
She's stood at attention on
many graves,
The road to freedom, she's
helped to pave!

She's flown on ships as they
go to war,
and carried by our troops
both hear and afar.
The red, white and blue will
forever wave,


helping our country, it's
freedom to save!

The Pledge of Allegiance
we'll say out loud,
that ragged old flag makes
us mighty proud!
America's banner majesti-
cally flies,
streaming her colors against
the sky!


the Freeport City Hall. The
auditions will run from 2
p.m. to 4 p.m., and all are
welcome.
Auditioners will read for
the director and sing a short


piece for the musical direc-
tor.
This year's director,
Jeremiah Campbell, is seek-
ing actors, singers, and mu-


sicians. He is especially inter-
ested in attracting new tal-
ent to join the cast.
Old Friends Remembered
will feature excerpts from
previous years' scripts, par-


ticularly ones that were au-
dience favorites.
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.
For more information on
auditions, show dates, and
tickets, call Grit & Grace at

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR DFS City Council

PERSONAL COMMENTS discuss hiring plan


for city manager


Editor's Comment


By RON KELLEY


Doggone shelter blues


Although it took several attempts to accomplish, the Wal-
ton County Commission (BCC) recently approved establish-
ing a temporary animal shelter at the former D&D Pet Motel,
located on Hwy 90E.
Like many Walton County residents, I was disappointed
when the animal control services were sent to Washington
County, but not because of Dr. Todd Anderson, who oper-
ates that facility. In fact, I have never heard any complaints
about him or the quality of the services.
I simply felt then, and still do, that it's an unnecessary
hardship for many Walton County residents to make that
trip. The commissioners did, too, which caused them to pay
staff to drive to Chipley to deliver animals and, on those
occasions when citizens were quick enough to locate and
identify their own animals as having been picked up drive
back to Chipley and bring the animals back to the owners.
Not only does that seem like a cumbersome process, the idea
of improving the Washington County economy ($263,000
annually) at the expense of our own seems a short-sighted
decision.
These concerns, obviously shared by others, may have
played a part in the commissioner's decision to establish a
temporary facility in Walton County. However, this plan has
also raised some questions. Because of this, I contacted Com-
missioner Rosier Cuchens, who took time out to talk to me
at length.
Rosier and I are friends, and while we have not always
agreed on every issue, I do know him to be a person of integ-
rity who consistently votes his conscience, which is all I can
ever ask. Our long conversation only confirmed my impres-
sion as he spoke of his reasons for trying to return these
services to Walton County as soon as it could be done. His
goal was to benefit the citizens, reduce the cost of county
vehicle maintenance and fuel costs, improve the efficiency
of the services and positively impact the local economy.
I believe that those are all excellent reasons and only wish
they had been the guiding principles when the former com-
missioners made their original decision.

Although I am satisfied with his sincerity, there are a few
things that still concern me.
First, I am uneasy, with the idea of renovating private
property, which will remain vastly improved when the county
moves its operations, as well as the idea of paying the prop-
erty owner $36,000 per year for the privilege of doing so.
Then there are the total costs for the temporary project.
The estimated costs have been re-worked and restated to
the point that it's difficult to know what the cost may actu-
ally turn out to be.
For instance, in February of this year, Walton County
Construction Manager Rick Millard estimated the cost to
lease the property, contract for veterinarian services, reno-
vate the facility, staff it, equip a third animal control officer
and cover office and kennel costs, would be over $492,000

for the first year and then about $392,000 the second year
and this does not include utility costs. There has also been
talk about the need for hiring an additional animal control
officer.
In- March, the county's finance director, Bill Imfeld, re-
turned with an estimate that showed only a small fraction
ofMillard's original estimate. The newer estimate subtracted
large amounts from Millard's estimate on the basis that "they
would be incurred sooner or later with the permanent con-
struction." This may be true, but it does not change the fact
that the costs are being incurred much sooner than later,
given that construction of a new facility is anticipated to
take about two years.
The newer estimate also subtracts $25,170 for fencing for
the same reason. However, in reality, new fencing will still
have to be used in the county facility, meaning this amount
will be paid twice. Some of the equipment and supplies might
be reused at the county's permanent facility, but chain link
fence posts have to be set in concrete. It seems unlikely that
the county would rip up the fencing after several year's wear
and reuse it at the new facility.
It's also important to remember that, according to the
county's own estimates, even if some of the initial capital
outlay can be reused or would have eventually been spent
anyway, the fact remains that the first year's estimated
amount of $492,000 will. still be spent and $392,000 will
likely be spent during the second year.
Second, establishing a temporary facility on private prop-
erty also relieves the pressure on the commissioners to build
a county facility, despite having repeatedly voted to do so
over several year's time.
The county would use the temporary facility for at least
the two years that it will take to construct a permanent
facility and that assumes the county starts building the
permanent facility this year, too. No such design or construc-
tion bids have been approved so far.
Finally, it's interesting to note that, according to the BCC
minutes, on June 29, 2004, Jackie Malone presented a pro-
posal in favor of using the D & D Pet Motel for a temporary
site. County Administrator Ronnie Bell asked the BCC to
reject the proposal "due to the property not meeting the
county's needs." The commissioners agreed and the vote was
unanimous.
Six months later, on Jan. 25, 2005, the Animal Control
Advisory Committee recommended the D & D Pet Motel as
the temporary site. Then, on March 22, 2005, a motion was
made to approve the D & D site, but the motion failed to
even get the required second so a vote could be taken. At
the next BCC meeting, on April 12, the same motion was
made and it passed 4-1, with Commissioner Cindy Mead-
ows voting nay. ........... ".
All of this is doggone interesting, but being that the plan
has been approved, it seems that, once again, I'm barking
up the wrong tree.

The DeFuniak Springs
City Council met Monday,
June 6, to discuss the process
for hiring a cityinanager, fol-
lowing the resignation of
Mike Standley.
The council members
agreed to independently re-
view the applications of the
more than 20 prospective city
managers and rank their fa-
vorite three.
When the choices are tabu-
lated, staff will compile a list
of the three choices who re-
ceived the most votes and
present the rankings to the
councilmen on June 20.
Councilmen are also
tasked with preparing indi-
vidual questions, which will
be put to all three top-ranked
applicants. Following that
meeting, councilmen will
choose their favorite appli-
cant, who will be invited back
for a final interview on June
28.
Council members also
agreed on a salary range of
$65,000 to $75,000 for the


position.
According to Mayor Harold
Carpenter, the applications
received so far include local,
area and out of state appli-
cants. The farthest applicant
is from Maine, while others
have applied from around the
state and from the local area,
too.
Carpenter said the far-
away applicants learned of
the job from the city's
website.
In addition to discussing
the process for hiring a city
manager, the councilmen
also:unofficially agreed to
give Assistant City Manager
Larry Laird a 15 percent pay
raise.
Mayor Carpenter initially
recommended a 10 percent
raise, but the council mem-
bers felt a 15 percent raise
was deserved. A straw vote to
that effect was unanimous.
When the raise is approved
during a regular council
meeting, Laird, who now
draws about $46,000 annu-
ally, will be bumped up
around $52,900.


Editor,
(Regarding advertisements by the United Negro College
Fund).
A mind is not a terrible thing it is a marvelous part of
our body, created by God.
I understand what they are trying to convey when they
say, "A mind is a terrible thing to waste," but can't we change
that a little and say "The mind is a beautiful thing to waste,"
and maybe, "so please don't."

MAYOR


FROM FRONT


town's check-signing card at Regions Bank. At the conclu-
Sion of the council's "business" segment of>the meeting.;Coun-
leilwoman Ann Sexton made the motion for council to 'ad'
journ. City Clerk Suzan Davis had arranged for a reception,
to honor the new mayor and provide an opportunity for ev-
eryone to meet Smith.
Smith has lived in Paxton all of her life except for three
years when she lived in Florala. During these years, Smith
attended and completed her Alabama certification as a po-
lice officer. She was employed by the Florala Police Depart-
ment in 1975 and was the first female police officer.
Smith quickly attributes most of her career successes to
her late husband, Clayton Smith. After marrying, the couple
stayed in the Paxton area because it is a nice, peaceful place.
They made their home and raised three children (Bobby,
Andy and Amanda) in Paxton, where they also went to
school. According to Smith, the couple never had to worry
about the children while they were in school because Pax-
ton is a "family community."
Paxton is truly "home" to Smith. She said the times that
she has traveled out of town, it was always "coming home"
upon her return and she never wanted to permanently be
anywhere else. There were times when she consid-
ered moving, but she feels she was meant to remain in the
area with her family. Smith nowhas nine grandchildren,
three are now being raised in Paxton.
She says Clayton was very supportive and wanted her to
be able to "take care of her self' if something were to hap-
pen. With his strong encouragement, she went to Troy State
University, Florida Region, where she earned her Bachelor
of Science degree in accounting in 1995. She then obtained
her master's degree in pubic administration in 2002. She
didn't know it then, but things were working out when she
became a widow in 2004. Thanks to Clayton's "training me
not to be a quitter," Smith was able to complete her educa-
tion and is now the budget analyst in Walton County.
Smith speculates that the office of mayor will help her
"occupy" her time. Losing her husband a year ago, she has
"been looking for ways of giving back to Paxton. I've raised
three kids, earned my education the hard way working
and going to school- and am now ready to face newv chal-
lenges." Time won't be a problem even though she is em-
ployed full-time with the county, she said.
Starting as the first female police officer and a dispatcher
in Florala back in 1975, Smith has been moving upward
ever since. She left Florala to be a dispatcher for'Walton
County Sheriffs Department for three years, prior to being
the finance officer for the sheriffs department for seven-
teen years.
Smith has never been in local government or "politics"
before. She's not making any promises for her term of office
but says she wants to sit back and watch how things work.
If she can find any way to make things better, then she will.
Smith's philosophy is, "if I can't improve it, I'll leave it alone."
She is hopeful and believes that she can learn from past
mistakes and not repeat them.
She has known the Paxton council members most of their
lives and has a great amount of respect for each of them,
she said. Smith is confident that they can maintain a posi-
tive working relationship for the community and make great
strides in the town.
The first council meeting for Smith will be on Tuesday,
June 14 at 7 p.m. at Paxton Town Hall. She believes that
she'll get a good feel for the town and its needs at that time.
Being a novice to local government, she has no long-term
goals set because "I just don't want to make promises I can't
keep," she said.
Smith anticipates setting regular office hours at Town Hall
in the near future. Smith has spoken to each of the town's
employees and feels comfortable with their abilities when
she is not at town hall. For information prior to Smith es-
tablishing regular office hours, contact Suzan Davis at 850-
834-2489 and Smith will return your call.

Commissioners Walton Cc



How does the County Set The Budget?


county Public Information Office 892-8530


Volume Six, May 1, 2005


Walton County's fiscal year starts on October 1 each year. In order to prepare its proposed
budget, the process begins in April. In the past budgets were based on a comparison to the
prior year's budget. Now each account is analyzed for actual costs incurred for the current year
as well as the past three years.
The Walton County Commission (BCC) has adopted a strategic plan for the county with short-
term, mid-range and long term goals. When submitting their budget request each department
must submit a synopsis of that plan as well. Budget requests are then scrutinized for compatibil-
ity with the strategic plan.
Budget books, which are available at public workshops, now contain organization charts for
each component of county operations, narrative of their mission/strategic plan, and compari-
sons with the preceding year's budget.
This year the county departments must have their budget requests into the finance office by
May 20. In June the BCC will review each budget request, including those from organizations
requesting funding from the county. The Sheriff, Property Appraiser, Tax Collector, Supervisor of
Elections and Clerk of Court have to turn in their budget's by June 1.
The BCC will hold budget workshops for presentations during the first two weeks in July and two
public hearing will follow in September. Proposals for millage and a tentative budget are part of
the first hearing, and the second adopts the millage and the official budget.

The mission statement of the Walton County Finance Division seeks to serve the best interest of thd
citizens and taxpayers of Walton County: to prepare and submit budgets that are timely and respon-
sive; to obtain goods and services that achieve the proper blend of quality and price; to research and
secure alternative funding sources for projects of significance to Walton County; to provide quality com-
munications that keep pace with technological improvements; to monitor contracts and agreements
entered into by the County to secure that special provisions are met, renewal is timely, and that appro-
priate financing is available; and, to professionally secure reimbursement of ambulance service costs.
William Imfled is the Director of the Walton County Finance Division.


Last year, the Department
of Financial Services, Bu-
reau of Unclaimed Property,
returned a record $99 mil-
lion in unclaimed cash and
property to 176,000 owners
or heirs. But Florida's Chief
Financial Officer Tom
Gallagher wants to do more
to make sure unclaimed
property is returned to the
rightful owners or heirs.
Gallagher has organized a
series of workshops this
summer to educate busi-
nesses and government of-
fices about Florida's un-
claimed property laws.
"If the state has the re-
sponsibility to collect un-
claimed property, then we
must make sure that all un-
claimed property is being
reported to us," Gallagher
said. "Yes, people move and
forget about a safe deposit
box or their utility deposit,
but people also lose track of
their property through com-
pany mergers and buyouts
and I want to make sure that
no Floridian loses their prop-
erty due to company prac-
tices."
The money or property re-
ported to the state comes
mostly from bank accounts,
insurance.policies, uncashed
checks, business accounts or



safe deposit boxes. The de-
partment advertises a 24-
hour website where people
can search for unclaimed
.property for themselves or
family and friends.
Cash that is unclaimed is
deposited into the state's
education trust fund, and
every year the department
holds a public auction to sell
property that has remained
unclaimed for at least three
years. This year's auction is
scheduled for July 30 at the
Wyndham Hotel in Ft. Lau-
derdale. Auction proceeds
also are deposited into the
education trust fund and can
be claimed at any time.
The dates for the work-
shops are June 14, in Or-
lando; June 23, in Tampa;
June 29, in Fort Lauderdale;
and July 12, in Jacksonville.
The department is cur-
rently holding 'unclaimed
property accounts valued at
more than $1 billion. Own-
ers or their heirs can claim
the cash or property ac-
counts valued at more than
$1 billion.
Owners or their heirs can
claim the cash or property for
free by logging on to

by calling 1-888-VALUABLE

Millage Rate: A rate expressed in thousands. As used with Ad Valorem (property) taxes the rate expressed the dollars of tax per
one thousand dollars of taxable values.
Tax Rate: The amount of tax stated in terms of a unit of the tax base; for example, 5 mills equals $5 per thousand of taxable
value.
Ad Valorem: A tax levied in proportion to the value of the property against which it is levied. Commonly referred to as "property
tax."
Aggregate Millage Rate: A rate obtained by dividing the sum of all Ad Valorem taxes levied by the Board of County Commission-
ers by the taxable value of the county. Expresses an average tax rate.

In wake of news that this
hurricane season could be
even worse than last, with
the continued threat offlood-
ing, earthquakes and wild-
fires, The Humane Society of
the United States urges all
pet owners to make prepara-
tions now to care for their
pets in any emergency situa-
tion.
All families with pets
should have an emergency
supply kit for each of their
pets. A threeday supply of
food and water, pet medica-
tions, and leashes and har-
nesses should be packed into
a waterproof container. Vet-
erinary records, a current
photo and a few small toys.
should also be included.
If not evacuating, bring


pets indoors as soon as local
authorities say there is an
imminent problem. Keep
pets under direct control so
that in case of evacuation, no
time will be spent trying to
find them.
Designate a "safe room"
inside the home and put
emergency supplies there in
advance, including pet's
Scrate and supplies. Base-
ments or inside rooms are
preferred, depending on the
type of emergency.
Have plenty of plastic bags
and newspapers as well as
containers and cleaning sup-
plies to help deal with pet
waste. Puppy training pads
are also useful for this pur-
pose.
Listen to the radio and


don't come out of shelter
until it's safe.
If local government orders
an evacuation, take animals
with you.
Learn official evacuation
routes from local authorities

How are Property Taxes Determined and Collected?
The determination and collection of property taxes is the product of the collaborative efforts of various agencies.
First, all real property, meaning land, buildings and fixtures, must be appraised for taxing purposes. Also, all tangible personal
property and mobile homes that are classified as real property are appraised as well. Appraisals for property tax purposes are
:.required to be at full market value as prescribed in Florida Statutes. Appraisals are handled by the Walton County Property
:Appraiser's Office.
;The property appraiser has no role'in determining the tax rate (millage). This is calculated by the various taxing authorities au-
thorized to levy taxes on real and tangible personal property by dividing each agencies proposed budget by the total assessed
i:value of all non-exempt property within the tax district. These taxing authorities include the county commission, school board,
::cities, fire departments and water management districts.
WiAn example of how taxes are determined:
!Assessed value $100,000.00
;:Homestead Exemption-$25,000
:Taxable Value $75,000.00
Millage Rate (16 mills) x.016
Taxes payable: $1,200.00
In 2004 the Millage Rates were: 1
,County 5.0964
;City of DeFuniak Springs 4.5
;City of Freeport 3.93
:South Walton Mosquito Control District .1578.
,South Walton Fire district .83 Roads, facilities, recreational areas and emergency re-
jSchool Board 5.569 (local 2.445 and state 3.124) sponse services are all paid:for by Ad Valorem taxes"
Each year, during the month of August, every property owner is Sent a "Notice of Proposed Property Taxes" (also known as a
ITRIM notice) This will show the parcel number as well as a brief legal descritibn. The. physical address of the property may
:'not be listed, instead, the agencies rely on the legal description for Identification.
'Also on the notice there will be a listing of each taxing authority, an itemization of the actual amount of taxes fromthe previous
:year, and the proposed amount for the current year. Finally, at or near the bottom of the notice the previous year'smarket
:value of the property is listed, the market value for the upcoming year, the exemptions and taxable values.
if you have questions about your property assessment contact Patrick Pilcher, Walton County Property Appraiser at 892-8123
Ior 267-4500, Their office is located at 650 East Nelson Avenue in DeFuniak Springs. There is also an officee in
bthe South Walton courthouse Annex, 31 Coastal Centre Blvd., Santa RosaBeach, Florida. Information is
available on line at www.,waltonpa.com

How do I apply for Property Exemption? .
SIn order to apply for a property tax exemption; first time applicants should visit the Property Appraisers office in person. Appli-
Scations must be filed on or before March 1st of the year for which the exemption applies.
The most common exemption isthe $25,000 homestead exemption. Additionally, if you are over 65, you may be eligible for
San additional exemption of up to $25,000. Senior applicants must also provide proof of age and must demonstrate their in-
come for the previous year did not exceed $20,000.Other exemptions are offered to widows, widowers, the disabled and to
Sthe blind These exemptions are of varying amounts. If you think you qualify, contact the Property Appraiser'S Office,


SHow are taxes collected?
in Florida, the county tax collector is responsible for collecting and distributing taxes from the annual taxroll which is provided
by the property appraiser's office. The Ad Valorem tax roll consists of real estate taxes and tangible personal property taxes.
The non-Ad Valorem tax roll is prepared and provided to the board of county commissioners by the tax collector's office. Non-,
Ad Valor m assessments are primarily assessments for fire services, solid waste collection and disposal. The collection of
taxes, as well as the assessment, is regulated by the Florida Department of Revenue and Florida Statutes. These taxes are
collected beginning on November 1st of each year and become delinquent on April 1st. There are discounts for early payment
and penalties for late payments. State regulations require that payment of delinquent taxes must be made in the form of a
guaranteed payment (cash, money order, cashier's check or debit card). Detailed information regarding the services of the tax
collector's office and some transactions are available on line at www.waltontaxcollector.com. If you need information, about
payment of your taxes contact Walton County Tax-Collector Rhoncda Skipper at 892-8121 or the branch office in the South
i alton Courthouse Annex at267-3001 '

PUFFER FISH
Florida's seafood is among
the best in the country, but
take care to identify and
avoid poisonous fish. Eating
puffer fish, commonly known
as blowfish, can cause sax-
itoxin poisoning. Saxitoxin
has no taste, color or smell
and cannot be destroyed by
cooking or cleaning. Symp-
toms of saxitoxin poisoning
include tingling, burning,
numbness, drowsiness, inco-
herent speech, difficulty
breathing and in severe
cases, death. Also avoid lo-
cally harvested shellfish dur-
ing red tide occurrences.

SWIMMING SAFETY
When enjoying our waters,
Floridians and those visiting
Florida should engage in
water sports that are safe for
all involved while taking note
of marine life and harmful
algal blooms.
Marine life includes natu-
rally occurring plant-like al-
gae like blue-green algae
(cyanobacteria) and red tide,.
which can be present in the
open ocean, bays, lagoons
and freshwater environ-
ments. DOH recommends
avoiding areas with obvious
algal blooms as contact may
cause skin rash, runny nose
and burning eyes. However,
symptoms are temporary and
last only for a few hours.
For more information or to
report symptoms related to
red tide, blue green algae ex-
posure or puffer fish con-
sumption, call the toll-free
Marine Toxin Hotline at 1-
888-232-8635. This hotline
is operated by the Florida
Poison Control Center.
An example of an unsafe
water sport is teak surfing.
Teak surfing involves swim-
mers being towed through
the water while hanging on
to a powerboat's teak swim
platform.
Tihe threat of carbon mon-
oxide is present because mov-
ing boats produce exhaust
fumes. Carbon monoxide is
a highly toxic gas that has no
smell or taste. Inhaling car-
bon monoxide causes the
teak surfer to lose conscious-
ness, become submerged in
the water and quickly
drown. Many surviving vic-
tims have sustained perma-
nent brain damage.

PROTECTION AGAINST
MOSQUITO BITES
DOH officials continue to
stress the "5 D's" for preven-
tion:
DUSK and DAWN (avoid
being outdoors when mosqui-
toes are seeking blood, for
many species this is during
the dusk and dawn hours).
DRESS (wear clothing that
covers skin).
DEET (use mosquito repel-
lents including DEET [N, N
diethyl-metatoluamide] on
skin. You can add to your pro-
tection by applying a repel-
lent directly to your clothing
when you are outside). Keep
in mind, DEET is not recom-
mended for children younger
than two months old. In-
stead, avoid exposing babies

Insurance Accepted
We file most major insurance


to mosquitoes.
DRAINING (check your
home to rid it of standing
water in which mosquitoes
can lay their eggs).
Elimination of breeding
sites is one of the keys to pre-
vention.
Clean out eaves, troughs
and gutters.
Remove old tires or drill
holes in those used in play-
grounds to drain.
Turn over or remove empty
plastic pots.
Pick up all beverage con-
tainers and cups.
Check tarps on boats or
other equipment that may
collect water.
Pump out bilges on boats.
Replace water in birdbaths
and pet or other animal feed-
ing dishes at least once a
week.
Change water in plant
trays, including hanging
plants, at least once a week.
Remove vegetation or ob-
structions in drainage
ditches that prevent the flow
of water.
BLACK HENNA TAT-
TOOS
Other skin injuries can be
sustained by getting black
henna tattoos or body pierc-
ing. Henna is a coloring
made from a plant extract
that has not been approved
by the US Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) for
skin application.
Some of the henna contains
a product called p-
pherlyenediamine (PPD),
which may cause allergic re-
actions like intense itching,
redness, swelling and even
scarring at the tattoo site.
Persons experiencing these
symptoms should seek imme-
diate medical attention and
report the instance to the lo-
cal health department. Body
piercing poses health risks if
done with unclean instru-
ments.
Unclean instruments could
be contaminated with Hepa-
titis B or C, diseases which
may severely impair liver;'
function. Also, an abni'iialt
overgrowth of scar tissue,
called a keloid, can form.
POISON CONTROL
DOH joins the Florida Poi-
son Information Centers in
encouraging individuals to
take an active role in safe-
guarding children from po-
tential dangers that involve
products commonly found in
every home.
Children under the age of
five are particularly vulner-
able to these accidental
events due to their natural
curiosity about the world
around them. What they see,


touch and reach is generally
put into their mouths.
Almost 60 percent of all
calls to the poison informa-
tion center involve exposures
in one of the following five
groups: Acetaminophen is
used as an aspirin substitute,
pain reliever and fever re-
ducer and is often found in
children's medication. Toxic
symptoms are delayed and
can cause profound effects,
particularly liver damage.
Ethanol-containing prod-
ucts include mouthwashes,
perfumes, colognes, hand
sanitizers and adult cold
medications. Toxic symptoms
include sleepiness, drop in
blood sugar and shallow
breathing. Common hand
soaps and detergents may
cause upset stomach and
may cause persistent vomit-
ing, diarrhea and even dehy-


dration if ingested. Auto-
matic dishwasher detergent
may be caustic. Hypochlo-
rites include bleach, pool
chemicals and supplies and
cleaning products. Toxic
symptoms can include irrita-
tion to the mouth and stom-
ach, and potential burns to
the mouth, throat and
esophagus.
Hydrocarbon containing
products include gasoline,
kerosene, charcoal lighter
fluid, automobile products
and lamp oil. Toxic symptoms
may include vomiting, and if
the product enters the lungs,
fever, coughing, shortness of
breath, wheezing or chemical
pneumonia can occur.
For poisoning emergencies,
call the Poison Information
Center; toll free 24 hours a
day, at 1-800- 222-1222

2005 FHP troopers of the Year


The Florida Highway Pa-
trol is pleased to announce
that Corporal Richard V.
Warden and Trooper Milton
L. Brown have been selected
as the Florida Highway
Patrol's co-recipients of the
2005 Trooper of the Year
award.
Corporal Warden and
Trooper Brown will be offi-
cially recognized as FHP
Troopers of the Year by.Gov-
ernor Jeb Bush and Cabinet
members during the Florida
Cabinet Meeting. The
Florida Petroleum Council
has sponsored the Trooper of
the Year Award since 1965.
The award is presented an-
nually to an outstanding
trooper in recognition of acts
of heroism or exceptional per-
formance of duties.
Corporal Warden and
Trooper Brown were selected


for this prestigious award
based on the following inci-
dent: On March 27, 2004, at
approximately 10:00 a.m.,
Corporal Warden and
Trooper Brown were at the
Bonifay Police Department
working on a traffic fatality
investigation that had oc-
curred earlier that morning.
Trooper Brown then left the
police department and Cor-
poral Warden remained to
complete a press release.
Officer Stephen Lee, a
Bonifay police officer, had
just responded to a call at a
residence where the situa-
tion suddenly turned violent.
Officer Lee was shot by a sub-
ject at the residence, and
called for assistance. Hearing
of this, Corporal Warden im-
mediately left the police de-
partment and quickly re-
sponded to the scene, and
notified Trooper Brown via


Florida Market Report


For the Week ended June 1,
2005
At the Florida Livestock Auc-
tions, receipts totaled 4,888 (two
markets closed for the Memorial
Day holiday) compared to last
week 8,499 and 7,168 a year ago.
According to the Florida Federal-
State Livestock Market News
Service, slaughter cows and bulls
were steady, feeder steers and
heifers unevenly steady.
Feeder Steers: .
Medium & Large Frame No. 1-2


200-300 lbs 165.00-225.00
300-400 lbs 134.00-175.00
400-500 lbs 117.00-143.00
Feeder Heifers:
Medium & Large Frame No. 1-2
200-300 lbs 145.00-200.00
300-400 lbs 122.00-154.00
400-500 lbs 109.00-134.00
Slaughter Cows: Lean:

radio. Trooper Brown was
close by and immediately re-
sponded as well.
Corporal Warden arrived
first on the scene to find Of-
ficer Lee shot and on the
ground. The suspect was
standing in his yard with an
assault rifle aimed in
Warden's direction. Corporal
Warden placed his patrol car
in between the suspect and
Lee in order to protect the
fallen officer. Warden then
fired at the suspect to protect
them both. Trooper Brown
also arrived on the scene and
parked his patrol car in a
strategic location not far
from Warden. Brown then
exited his vehicle with his
shotgun and began working
his way towards the front of
the suspect's house via a
ditch on the opposite side of
the street. By then, the sus-
pect had retreated inside his
house and was firing at both
troopers repeatedly with the
assault rifle. Corporal War-
den and Trooper Brown both
returned fire as needed dur-
ing the course of the entire
event.
After an extensive ex-
change of gunfire, which ul-
timately included deputies
from the Holmes and Wash-
ington County Sheriff's De-
partments, things subsided'
and the suspect disappeared
from view. A tactical team
subsequently discharged tear
gas into the house and en-


tered the dwelling after no
response. The suspect who
shot officer Lee was found
unconscious and incapaci-
tated on the floor, and subse-
quently died of bullet wounds
suffered during the exchange
of gun fire with law enforce-
ment.
After being up all night
long investigating a traffic
fatality, and after enduring
this traumatic event and the
subsequent questioning and
debriefing, Corporal Warden
and Trooper Brown were not
through for the day. They
both insisted on traveling to
a Dothan, AL, hospital to
check on their fallen com-
rade. Only after being able to
see officer Lee and briefly
speak with him after surgery
did they agree to call it a day.
It is clearly evident that
Corporal Warden and
Trooper Brown placed them-
selves in great personal dan-
ger to save the life of a fellow
officer. Had they not quickly
responded, strategically
placed their cars and re-
turned fire, the consequences
would have certainly been
grave. Their heroic actions
were in the highest tradition
of the Florida Highway Pa-
trol.
Corporal Warden is a 22-
year veteran of the FHP as-
signed to Troop A-Chipley.:
Trooper Brown is a 20-year
veteran, assigned to Troop A-
Bonifay.

Preliminary Memorial Day
figures released by the
Florida Highway Patrol indi-
cate that 24 people were
killed in crashes investigated
by FHP. This figure was for
the four-day holiday week-
end, May 27 30, 2005.
During this period, state
troopers charged 146 people
with DUI, issued 8,000
speeding citations, and as-
sisted 2,863 motorists on
Florida's highways.
Of the 873 collisions occur-
ring on Florida's interstate
highways during the holiday
weekend, 37 have been


classed as alcohol-related.
Related statistics show
that the 24 fatalities occurred
in 22 separate crashes, and
that 46 percent of the fatal
crashes took place during the
hours of darkness.
Four of the 24 dead were
pedestrians, and 4 were mo-
torcyclists. Only one of the
motorcyclists killed was
wearing a helmet.
The FHP listed no fatal
crashes in the counties of
Okaloosa, Walton, or Holmes.
The above figures are pre-
liminary, and reflect only
those accidents investigated
by the FHP.

MONTGOMERY, ALABAMA


A picnic with Shakespeare, an afternoon at the zoo


By BRUCE COLLIER
If the prospect of a slow
crawl southward to the
increasingly crowded
beaches does not appeal to
you, you should consider a
longer trip north.
About three hours' drive
will put you and your fam-
ily in Montgomery. You can
picnic in the park at the
Alabama Shakespeare
Festival, then visit the
assorted inhabitants of the
Montgomery Zoo.
The Alabama
Shakespeare Festival (ASF)
is ranked among the ten
largest Shakespeare
Festivals in the United
States, and has been the
state theatre of Alabama
since the 1970s.
The ASF was founded in
Anniston as a summer


theatre festival. In 1985,
Wynton and Carolyn Blount
pledged to build a new and
permanent theatre in
Montgomery on condition
that ASF move there.
As a result of the Blounts'
generosity, ASF produces 14
shows a year, three of which
are works by Shakespeare.
The balance of the season is
made up of classics from the
American, British and
world stage.
Even if you are not there
to see a show we were not
this time you can spend a
relaxing day picnicking in
Blount Cultural Park, the
carefully landscaped
grounds on which the thea-
tre is built.
The park gently slopes
down from the theatre to a
pond, on which swim

ducks, geese, and black
swans. Picnic tables are
located along the bank, and
under shade trees. The
birds will be happy to
share your meal, but will
forbear if you ignore them.
Adjoining the theatre
building is the Shakespeare
Garden, one of seven gar-
dens of its kind in the
United States. The garden
features plants and flowers
mentioned in Shakespeare's
plays. Each plant is identi-
fied both by name and by
the play in which it
appears.
Among the plants to be
found; are rosemary ("H-
amlet"), parsley ("The
Taming of the Shrew"), hon-
eysuckle ("Much Ado About
Nothing"),. and roses
("Othello").
The plants are placed
around a stone building
with a thatched roof, which
itself faces a tiered
amphitheatre.
The park is available for
weddings and other events.
The grounds are open
from. 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., and
admission is free.
ASF'current schedule of
plays includes "As You Like
It," "The Taming of the
Shrew," "Cat on a Hot Tin
Roof," and "All My Sons."
Two other plays, "The Real
Thing" and "Coriolanus,"
are set to open soon.

Picnic over, we proceeded
to the Montgomery Zoo,
which also houses the
MlAiIn Wildlife Learning
Museum.
Admission to the zoo only
is $6, $4 for children under
12 and seniors. The
museum costs the same, but

combination tickets are available for
$10 and $7.
The Montgomery Zoo is a "barrier
free" zoo. Animals live in environ ments
similar to those they would inhabit in
nature. Visitors viev. them from behind
fences or glass barriers. This protects
the animals from the people, and allows
generous room for photo opportunities

animals, representing species from five

Andean condor the largest
flying bird giraffes,
African elephants, chimpan-
zees, and a giant anteater.
Also at the zoo are several
aviaries, a reptile house,
and various seasonal
exhibits.
If yot find yourself get-
ting too warm, or.are overly
stimulated by all the crea-
tures great and small,
there's the Mann Wildlife
Learning Museum.
The Mann Museum con-
tains an extensive collection
of impressively mounted
specimens of North
American wildlife. You
won't see stuffed bears like
this at Toys-R-Us.
Also in the collection are
fossils, artifacts, and exam-
ples of Native American
hunting and fishing tech-
nology. The museum con-
tains a dining room, avail-
able for events.
At this point, particularly
if you are traveling with a
small child, you might want
to think about dinner and
the road home.' This par-
ticular excursion, from here
to there and back again,
took from 7
in the morning until 10:30
at night, and consumed
about three-quarters of a
tank of gas.
If you bring your own
lunch, and see both the zoo
and museum, your outlay
will be $10 per person, with
an additional'$2 a head to
ride the bright red train at
the zoo. If you bring the
aforementioned small child,
you will ride the train, so
that's $12 per person, plus
gas and whatever lunch
cost you to make.
For a picnic in the park,
and an afternoon in the
Ark, that's not too shabby.

reflection. Shortly after last
year's reunion dinner, the
.class lost another one of its
own, Bernice Goodson-

MARGARET TUGANA, OR "TOPPER" as she is fondly
called, celebrated her 95th birthday on May 20. A party for
her was planned by Sara and Eugene Koedel at the Walton
County Extension Building. About 30 friends were there to
surprise her.
Topper moved to DeFuniak Springs over 50 years ago from
Gary, IN. She had worked earlier in her life at a recycle cloth-
ing shop with Sara, where all money collected was for the
Humane Society to take care of animals in DeFuniak Springs.
In the past she has been a hospital volunteer and received
an award in Pensacola for being the oldest person to volun-
teer. She also volunteered to help with a sale to benefit the
Tsunami victims last March.

Memories...
The Corners Of My Mind!

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


Brains-we've all got them, believe it or not-and sci-
entists allege that we use but 10 percent of their capac-
ity! Now I am not a mathematician, but if I am actively
using 10 percent of my brain, I believe that leaves 90
percent to curl into its four corners--to rot or, as I would
suggest, to revolve--in fright, faith, failure or fun.
Don't get dizzy just thinking about it-we're going to
do something about it! Let's creatively explore those four
corners of our brain, unseen by the world below, but seen
by the Lord above, who knows us far better than we. A
comforting-and scary thought-but come along. It could
be the adventure that will save your life!
First,, we find the corner called "good"--the fun and
forget-me-not memories we cherish, happy experiences,
pleasant relationships, memories that bring warm glows
of love, joy and peace. A favorite corner we love to visit!
Second, you'll need your flashlight here-it's the cor-
ner called "bad"- a dark, depressing place where no
sonlight shines, where we recall the failures of our life,
the down-times of our days, and the despair of our past.
Move on-it's not a comfortable place to be! It gets bet-
ter than this.
Stop! This corner is blocked off--no one has been here
for years. It's called ugly, a place of fright, a place where
abuse, rape, incest, dark deeds are hidden even from our
own view, a place that desperately needs God's revela-
tion. His help and healing care.
Surely, the last corner will be better--and it is. It's the
corner called "holy"- a place of faith, where we find God,
memories of our.relationship with Him, a loving Father,
who takes us by the hand, back to re-visit the other three
corners-to reveal and remove the "ugly", to forgive and
forget the "bad", to remold and renew the "good" to His
honor and praise. In Him and through Him, we will find
peace in the corners of our mind.
Are you needing peace of mind today? A healing of
memories, long forgotten, but stagnating in the dark cor-
ners of your world? "The Holy One," God Himself, comes
to gently reveal Himself in a new way, to take all those
memories-the good, the bad, the ugly, and turn them
into a "Holy Place", where He resides and rules.
Let this day USA become an altar for you- wher-
ever you live- as you surrender to Him all the hard
places of your spirit, mind and soul. The Holy God Him-
self waits to help-and heal-you this day!
Scripture: "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose
mind is stayed on thee, because he trusteth in thee
(Isaiah 26:3).
Prayer: "Lord, the dark corners of my mind haunt me-
-nameless fears, private sins, failures and hurts too hard
to speak-I can't forget! Lord, only in You will I find peace,
and I, this day, surrender each memory to you. "Come
fill my heart!" Cleanse, heal, restore, renew my mind
and spirit and may it ever be covered by Your precious
Blood, In Jesus Name, Amen."

Fast-pitch softball shuts out Northwest Florida


By PATRICK CASEY
Fast-pitch softball has
been played at the high school
level in the state of Florida
since 1988. The six classifi-
cation system has been used
since 1996. 79 state champi-
ons have been named in the
sports since 1988. Northwest
Florida has claimed none of
those titles. In fact, no school
from Pensacola to Tallahas-
see has laid claim to a soft-
ball title. That's 0-79 lifetime
and 0-60 for the last decade
that the six class system has
been in use.
The Bethlehem Wildcats in
2005 became the first team


from Walton or Holmes
County to ever qualify for a
state championship game in
the sport. Unfortunately for
the Wildcats, they promptly
got whacked by Tampa Cam-
bridge 12-2 in the Class A
championship game.
Only six teams from the
aforementioned region have
ever qualified for the finale.
North Florida Christian in
Tallahassee has qualified
(and lost) twice, while
Pensacola Tate, Navarre,
Wewahitchka and Bethlehem
have each been to a champi-
onship game once and lost.
Tate and Wewahitchka are


the only two of the six teams
that flirted with capturing
the title in the finale as they
each went on to lose by only
two run deficits. Tate lost to
Naples 2-0 in 2001 in the
Class 5A title game while
Wewahitcka lost to Holly-
wood Christian 3-1 in 2003 in
Class A.

Fast-pitch softball is still in
its infancy at the high school
level. Slow-pitch softball was
the staple at the high school
level thru most of the 1980's,
but universities needed ath-
letes who could play the fast-
pitch game, prompting the


Sp GOLFERS FROM ALL OVER the southeast took part in
ports News this weekend's DeFuniak Springs Country Club Annual
& otes Luau and Golf Tournament. There were all men and coed
& Notes teams at this week's tournament.


By PATRICK CASEY
Don Reese of Freeport fin-
ished tied for 23rd at the
Allianz Tournament in Polk
City, Iowa, on the Champions
Tour. Reese shot a 71-71-69
for a 211 total to earn $13,172
for the three day event.
The DeFuniak Springs
Country Club hosted its 23rd
annual Luau Golf Tourna-
teanis participatedI in the 3-
man scramble. The event.
which is traditionally played
the first weekend in June.
was one of the more compete -
tive on record as the field was
broken into 11 teams across
eight different flights of con-
petition. The weather also
cooperated as just a few drops
of rain fell on the event and
there were no delays of play
over the two days of competi-
tion.
Schuyler Williamson, a
product of Pensacola Catho-
lic High School, was the start-
ing catcher for Army in the
Tallahassee college baseball
regional hosted by Florida
State over the weekend.
Williamson, a senior who
played both baseball and foot-
ball for the Crusaders, was
named to the All-Regional
team. Army lost to Auburn
12-3 in an elimination game
on the final day of the re-
gional.
Charlie Marello has re-
signed as baseball coach at
Freeport High School after
seven seasons of leading the
team. Marello will stay on as
defensive coordinator for the
football team under Jim
Anderson.


JUST A LITTLE TAP will do it! You could hear Mike
Mosley ofEnterprise, AL say as he was trying to sink his ball
in one of the last holes of the course.

Florida High School Athletics
Association to move to the
fast-pitch game. Fast-pitch
softball is a game that is domi-
nated by pitching and catch-
ing. At the high school level,
lack of a dominant pitcher may
not keep a team from winning
games locally, but on the state
level, leaves a team with little
chance of making a run in the
playoffs. Of the 79 state cham-
pionship games played, 41
have ended in shutout victo-
ries.
Walton County's track
record in the softball playoffs
is not very eventful. Paxton
and Freeport have qualified
for the playoffs six times each,
with Freeport holding a 6-6
record while Paxton is 2-6.
Walton has never qualified for
the state playoffs while South
Walton is just beginning to
build their program.
Charles Trotman has been
the head coach of Freeport's
team in all six of their appear-
ances and the Bulldogs are the
only team in the county to
reach the Regional
Final(twice), the step right
before the State Final Four.
Hopefully Northwest
Florida will have a better fu-
ture in the sport. Participa-
tion is up at the Little League
level as more girls become in-
volved at younger ages.
Maybe a champion from the
Florida Panhandle will be
found before another decade of
the sport goes by.

Sports News In


Review by Chuck Hinson


Shula and Alabama dis-
cuss extension: The Uni-
versity if Alabama athletic
director Mal Moore and head
football coach Mike Shula,
plan to discuss extending
Shula's contract. The current
contract that gives him
$900,000 a year up until
2009, has to be reveiwed be-
fore the end of 2005.
Moore stated that he and
Shula have sat down already
to discuss the contract and
contract talks should be con-
cluded by the end of August
just in time for the start of
the 2005 football season.
Both hope to an extension at
the end of that month.
Court opens documents
to public: A judge ruled on
June 2 in Lexington, KY,
that there public can see all
evidence sealed exhibits con-
cerning the Dale Earnhardt
racing team and the insur-
ance company that refused to
pay when he died. The only
exhibit that will remain
closed is an unedited copy of
Earnhardt's contract with
'Richard Childress Racing,
which was replaced by a ver-
sion with five of eight pages
blacked out at the request of
the plaintiffs.
Several press members,
associations and media out-
lets had pressed for the re-
lease of the exhibits. Many
wanted a peek and details of
why the insurance company,
Omaha United, refused to
pay full settlement to
Earnhardt's widow and why
the driver's base salary cov-
erage was not awarded.
NY race officials aren't
horsing around: In New
York, a suspected case of con-
tagious respiratory disease
as the state's racing officials
worried at the Belmont
Stakes that takes place next
weekend. A"case of the di's-
ease has already delayed the
Pi~hakness Stakes winner,
Afleet Alex, from arriving for'
training from Baltimore,
MD.
The trip for the horse was
delayed because of a barnful
of horses in New York had
been quarantined earlier in
the day. A special barn has
been erected and set aside for
the horses of the upcoming
Belmont Stakes, in order to
keep horses coming into the
race from contracting the


virus known has stranglers
disease.
SEC works to build char-
acter: During the South-
eastern Conference meet-
ings held this past week in
Sandestin, SEC Commis-
sioner Mike Slive announced
that the conference will be
working with Northwestern
University Center for the
Study of Sport in Society on
ways to improve character
development among univer-
sity athletes. The decision
came after several athletes
in the conference have had
run-ins with various au-
thorities and law enforce-
ment officers.
With the numerous ar-
rests, including players at
Alabama and South Caro-
lina this week alone, the con-
ference feels it is time to face
the issues and begin training
athletes in the media spot-
light, on how to cope and
avoid similar incidents.
NCAA restores scholar-
ships: The NCAA gave Geor-
gia a rare surprise when they
agreed to reinstate there
men's basketball scholarship
after they were stripped
away following the scandal
and take down of coach Jim
Harrick. The scholarships
were for the 2005-2008 sea-
son and were part of a four-
year probation.
The University of Georgia
agreed that wrongdoing
occurred inside the basketball
program under Harrick, but
appealed the seriousness of
the penalties, which also in-
cluded the four-year proba-
tions. The NCAA agreed in a
rare settlement to reinstate
the three scholarships.
Henin-Hardenne wins
French Open: Justine
Henin-Hardenne slammed
Maiy Pierce in the French
Opeinfinal on Sunday with a
grand slam. Her opponent,
after losing in'the lop-sided
game, apologized to the fans
for such a poor game that has
,not been seen in 17 years.
Henin-Hardenne won 6-1,
6-1 and shut down Mary
Pierce in an embarrassing
and humiliating loss.
Truex wins Busch race:
Martin Treux Jr. took his
time before moving in for the
win at the Dover, Delaware
race track. He trailed leader
Kevin Harvick until passing


him in with 70 laps to go in
the NASCAR Busch Series.
It was the second consecu-
tive win for Truex at the
Monster Mile. Rookie Reed
Sorenson came in second by
trailing just seconds behind
Truex.
Wild wins Bowlegs 5K:
Kelly Wild had no problems
and took no prisoners as she
crossed the line in first place
once again at the Fort Wal-
ton Beach Billy Bowlegs 5K
Race on Saturday night, the

native.
Brennan Galloway of
Sandy Springs, GA, took
home the prize for first place
in the men's division.
Biffle cruises to victory
lane: Greg Biffle says he was
thrilled to tame the Monster
Mile in Dover Delaware as he
cruised in for his fourth vic-
tory of the season in the
crash-littered MBNA 400. In
a race slowed by seven times
for 33 of its 400 laps, Biffle
took home the prize in part
due to the fact that he
avoided the collisions.
Jeff Gordon, Ricky Rudd,
Ken Srhader and Dave
Blaney were not so lucky as
they were towed off the track
after their numerous collis-
sions. Kyle Busch, Mark
Martin, Jimmie Johnson and
Rusty Wallace completed the
top five spot finishers.

Nelson warns


that state is at


risk for oil drilling


BY TIANA LARSEN

"Drilling where there are
relatively few energy re-
sources poses too grave a risk
to Florida's $50 billion tour-
ism industry, while also
encroaching on Air Force and
Navy training operations in
the area," wrote Senator Bill
Nelson, (D-Florida) in a re-
cent letter to Department of
the Interior Secretary Gale
Norton. Nelson is convinced
the current Bush administra-
tion wants to open up
nearly 4 million acres in
lease sale area 181 to new
gas drilling as early as 2007.
Exactly where and what
could take place in the east-
ern Gulf of Mexico won't be
known for sure until the full
Senate considers a compre-
hensive national energy bill
later this month, but
Nelson's ..'tfic, hja been cir-
culating-ma iiip 'that the:"St.
Petersburg Tirzes called a
plot to overcorie Florida's re-
sistance to oil exploration off
its Gulf beaches."
New lines on the map
would redraw state bound-
aries in the Gulf of Mexico
and give control of much of
area 181 to pro-drilling Loui-
siana, according to Nelson's
press secretary. It is a com-
plicated situation, and how
close drilling could actually
come to Florida beaches de-
pends on what makes it into
the final energy bill.
In addition to redrawing
state boundaries, proposed
measures could increase roy-
alty money that goes to states
with drilling off their coasts,
allow states to opt out of the
current moratorium, and
weaken portions of the
Coastal Zone Management
Act (CZMA) that allows
states to review drilling
proposals even when they
are in federal waters.
The energy bill will likely
also call for an assessment
and comprehensive inven-
tory of all offshore oil and gas
resources, a step that oppo-
nents of offshore drilling see
as a slippery slope towards
allowing exploration and de-
velopment in areas now off


limits.
Just the inventory by itself
would have significant envi-
ronmental effects, said Mark
Ferrulo, director of Florida
Public Interest Research
Group. It would involve thou-
sands of underwater seismic
explosions as well as sonar,
which has been tentatively
implicated in the deaths of
marine mammals, he ex-
plained. Ferrulo pointed out
that, contrary to popular be-
lief, the current moratorium
only extends to new leases.
Existing leases have not gone
away, and in fact there are 99
leases off the coast right now,
some as close as 11 miles, he
said.
"The Panhandle has about
30 leases within 30 or 40
miles," Ferrulo said, al-
though no leaseholder has
actually attempted to drill
that close in since Chevron
proposed drillifg 2 fie if off
Pensacola, touching'off i
battle that Florida won in
2002 when President- Bush
backed his brother's opposi-
tion to Chevron's plan..
None of these recent events
should be confused with the
final buy-back of old leases
held in state waters, which
extend 10 miles from shore.
Governor Bush and the
Florida Cabinet approved a
deal last month with Coastal
Petroleum, the company that
held the last old offshore
drilling leases in state wa-
ters. Both Ferrulo and
Nelson expect to see a big
chunk of area 181 back on
the auction block when the
next five-year plan is drawn
up for 2007. That could result
in; drilling closer to Flprida
than is currently allowed.
"There are over 6000 rigs
in the !central and western,
Gulf. The eastern Gulf is
the only place left; and
people who want to keep
their military bases open
should be opposing oil drill-
ing in: the eastern Gulf,"
Ferrulo said.
How close .is too close?
Nelson does not want the oil
arid gas companies to move
any closer to Florida's
beaches, and he is blocking

THIS MAP DEPICTS active but currently non-producing oil and gas leases located in the eastern Gulf of Mexico.
Senator Bill Nelson (D-Florida) and others are worried about legislative maneuvering that could open up some areas
in the eastern Gulf to oil and gas exploration anddevelopment. Redrawing Louisiana's seaward boundary could place
an area currently under a moratorium inside Louisiana's jurisdiction, and then Louisiana could opt out of the morato-
rium, according to an editorial in the St. Pete Times. Nelson's press office has been circulating the map and the
editorial, as well as Nelson s objections to the plan. Lease area 181, shown here, looks somewhat like Idaho. The
small rectangle off'Pensacola is protected until 2012, under a 2002 agreement. The larger rectangle below it has
active leases and a new, proposed plan of exploration, about 116 miles'south southwest of Pensacola, is currently
under consideration. The rest of area'181, the irregular large shape to the east, has been off limits to drillers, but'that
could change soon.


the naming of a new deputy
for Norton because the nomi-
nee will not commit to pro-
tecting area 181, which is 285
miles from Tampa Bay and
just beyond the 100-mile
Panhandle buffer zone.
In 2001, Governor Bush
said, "There will be no new
drilling in area 181 off the
coast of Florida; on my
watch," but Nelson thinks
the governor is backing down
from that statement, based
on an Associated Press story
quoting the governor as say-
ing he "hopes to extend the
state's protection some 100
miles out to sea." The League
of Conservation Votes alsb
opposes opening up area 181.
"The fundamental reason
for the opposition to these
leases is because almost any
well drilled in the eastern
Gulf of Mexico poses a threat


to Florida's beaches. The en-
vironmental impact study
done by the Minerals Man-
agement Service for area 181
has scientific testimony that
explains that an oil spill in
area 181 would likely hit
Florida's shores," the League
wrote.

The Beach Breeze asked
Walton County Commis-
sioner Larry Jones, the only
current sitting commissioner
who was also in office when
the proposal to drill off
Pensacola came up, if he
thought 100 miles was far
enough away to protect the
coast.
"I don't know," he said. "It
would be ideal to have no
drilling. I would be hard
pressed to say without a lot
of information. We need a
great deal of caution and all


the information we could pos-
sibly get to be sure the coast
is not being endangered,"
Jones said.

A bill was signed last
month by President Bush,
giving energy companies the
right to explore for oil and
gas under the Gulf Islands
National Seashore off the
Mississippi coast.
The amendment was at-
tached to a military spending
bill after Mississippi decided
it wanted the right to develop
the minerals it claims under
federal land. Seismic
testing to locate oil and gas
deposits is permitted by the
bill, the first time the
federal government has al-
lowed seismic exploration on
national park property that
is also designated as wilder-
ness.


OWC sale of Kelly property permitted


By BRUCE COLLIER
In a judgment signed on
June 3, First Judicial Circuit
Court Judge G. Robert
Barron ruled that Okaloosa
Walton Community College
Foundation's proposed sale
of approximately 13 acres of
property, conveyed to it un-
der the will of Mattie Kelly,
may proceed. The judgment
was rendered less than a
month after a May 6, 2005
trial before Judge Barron.
The action was brought by
plaintiffs L. Bernarr Kelly,
Carol Kelly, and Lowell B.
SKelly, against defendant
Okaloosa-Walton Commu-
nity College, Inc.
The action was originally
filed July 8, 2004. The case
was tried after two amend-
ments were made to the
original complaint. The
plaintiffs sought the court's
relief on two counts.


The first count sought a
declaratory judgment that
the defendant foundation's
proposed sale of a 13-acre
parcel of property was in
derogation of an article of
Mattie. Kelly's will, which
bequeathed the property to
the foundation.
The first count also asked
the court to determine
whether the plaintiffs retain
any reversionary rights in
the subject property.
"The. primary issue," said
the court, "is the intent of the
testator."
In addition to examining
the will and the proposed
contract for sale of the prop-
erty, the judge heard testi-
mony from three witnesses,
which he summarized and
considered in the judgment.
The first witness, Lloyd'
Bell, testified for the plain-
tiffs on the subject of the pro-


posed Mattie Kelly Cultural
and Environmental Insti-
tute. Bell believed that Kelly
intended that the institute be
built on the property she be-
queathed to the foundation.
The judge characterized
Bell's testimony as his "per-
ception," adding that "at no
time did [Bell] specifically
discuss with Mattie Kelly
whether it might be neces-
sary for the College to sell
the property in the future to
meet her ultimate goals."
The judge also noted thai
Kelly did not discuss with
Bell any proposed language
to be used in her will, or in
any deed for converyance of
the property.
Finally, the judge noted
that Bell had had only one
meeting with Kelly, and was
not party to any future dis-
cussions concerning the prop-
erty between Kelly, OWC


President Dr. Bob Richburg,
and Kelly's attorney Dan
Perri, who drafted her will.
Richburg testified for the
defendant, saying that he
had met with Kelly "on at
least three occasions" con-
cerning the property. Accord-
ing to Richburg, Kelly ex-
pressed her intent to convey
the property to the college "as
a lasting gift for the arts."
Richburg said that no
agreement was made on pre-
serving the property. Accord-
ing to his testimony, while
Kelly initially intended that
the Institute and its associ-
ated activities were to be lo-
cated on the property, she
eventually "understood that
the property may have to be
sold to fulfill her desires and
goals of creating the Insti-
tute she envisioned."
Finally, Richburg said, he
discussed the possibility of a


future sale of' the property
with Kelly and Perri.
The third witness, also for
the defendant, was attorney
Dan Perri. Perri corroborated
Richburg's testimony. Perri
stated that Kelly did, under-
stand that the property
might have to be sold to carry
out her intent in creating the
Institute.
Perri added that the lan-
guage of the will he drafted
for Kelly did not give the
property to the college in
trust, nor did the will contain
any clause creating rever-
sionary rights in the plain-
tiffs.
Generally speaking, prop-
erty given in trust has re-
strictions on its use, which
can include restrictions on
sale or conveyance.
A reverter clause allows,


County

considers

new taxing

district
BY TIANA LARSEN

At their June 14 meeting,
the Walton County Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) will hear the first
reading of an ordinance cre-
ating a new, separate taxing
unit to fund the Walton
County Sheriff's Office.
The Walton County Law
Enforcement Municipal Ser-
vice Taxing Unit (MSTU)
would be authorized to levy
annual ad valorem taxes on'
real property within the un-
incorporated areas of the
county, to fund law enforce-
ment. The ordinance would
allow up to 10 mils (a mil is
$1 for every $1000 of taxable
property value).
Incorporated cities within
the county could include
themselves if their city coun-
cils agreed.
Currently, the sheriff's
budget is paid for out of the
general ad valotem taxes lev-
ied on property in the county.
If the MSTU is adopted, the
tax would show up as a sepa-
rate line item figure on a
property owner's tax bill.
The BCC saw the proposed
ordinance for the first time at
their May 24 meeting, when
David Hallman, Walton
County attorney, introduced
Greg Stewart, an attorney
with the county's legal con-
sulting firm in Tallahassee,
who explained the ordinance
to the BCC.
"What is the purpose of
this?" asked Commissioner
Cindy Meadows.
"To provide a separate ac-
counting to the public regard-
ing law enforcement costs,"
Stewart said, although he
acknowledged it would be an
additional tax, unless it was
combined with an equivalent
rollback of the county's gen-
eral millage rate.
"I am opposed to this. I
think it opens the door for
higher taxes," Meadows said,
noting that while the current
BCC might couple it to a roll-
back, future BCC's might not
and, in any case, there are no
guarantees.
Speaking for the sheriff's
office, Capt. Danny Glidewell
agreed, calling it "a bad deal
for the taxpayer." Sheriff
Johnson did not ask for the
MSTU, Glidewell explained,
and did not know about it
until it appeared in the May
24 meeting.
County Administrator
Ronnie Bell was also uncer-
tain why the ordinance has
been proposed. "There was
some previous discussion,"
he said, but not a lot and he
wasn't sure when.
Glidewell said the Sheriff
is very concerned because the
ordinance has the potential
to double the tax rate, since
ad valorem taxes are capped
at 10 mils and the ordinance
would allow another sepa-
rate and additional 10 mils,
for a total allowable millage
rate of 20 mils.
It might be neutral now,
Glidewell said, but once it is
in place, that could change.
He cited the example of
Alachua County, which
passed a similar ordinance.
Their total tax rate is close

MOST TRANSPORTATION in Walton and Okaloosa
counties now takes place by automobile, in part because of
current land use patterns. Bus service and other types of
mass transit represent one kind of alternative to building
and expanding roads and parking lots to accommodate a
greater number of automobiles as the population grows.


TPO asks


"Whats your vision?"


By DOTTY NIST

Transportation may take
on a different look and feel
between now and 2030, and
citizens are being asked to
help shape its future.
Would people be willing to
walk, bicycle or ride a bus
more often if better opportu-
nities to do these things ex-
isted?
How much of a bother is
traffic congestion?
How much money should
be spent locally for transpor-
tation improvements, and
what type of improvements
are really needed?
The Okaloosa-Walton
Transportation Organization
(TPO) wants to know resi-
dents' opinions on these and
a number of other questions.
The TPO is composed of
representatives of govern-
ments within the two-county
area. The organization plans
-for-transportation -impr6ve-
ments in the region.
This year, a TPO subcom-
mittee held a series of meet-
ings to set goals and objec-
tives in connection with the

That panel looked not only
at road improvements but at
the expansion of other modes
of transportation.
Goals resulting from the
group's deliberations empha-
size safety, efficiency, cost ef-
fectiveness, harmony with
environmental, social and
aesthetic features of the com-
munity, and a cooperative,
continuing planning process.
The results of the study are
being presented in detail in
public meetings throughout
the area. One of those meet-
ings took place at the Coastal
Branch Library on May 31,
and others are planned at
various locations with com-
munity groups.
In addition to hearing
about the findings, the com-
munity is being asked to par-
ticipate in a new public in-
volvement technique known
as the Visual Choice Assess-
ment Survey.
Its purpose is to help iden-
tify the local vision for the
future of the transportation
system.
The results "will be used to
build a needs plan that re-
flects the vision of the com-
munity," explained TPO staff
member Gary Kramer.
Kramer said survey infor-
mation will be collected over
a period of several months.
He noted that TPO staff
will be available to present
the information upon request

The South Walton Fire Dis-
trict (SWFD) is busy on sev-
eral fronts, the most
celebratory of that activity
being a grand opening set for
this month.
A June 22 grand opening is
on tap for the fire district's
newest facility, the Seagrove
Station, set for 1:30 p.m. The
traditional-style station is lo-
cated at the north end of the
WaterColor Crossing (Publix)
shopping center on CR-395.
At their June 6 meeting,
the SWFD commissioners
voted to spend up to $7,000
to proceed with engineering
plans and permit applica-
tions for a permanent dis-
patch facility which would
share the 10-acre parcel on
which the district's CR-393
headquarters is located.
Currently dispatchers
working for the fire district
are stationed at the Walton
County Emergency Opera-
tions Center in DeFuniak
Springs.
A renovation project on the
Miramar Beach Station is
planned and includes
$200,000 that has been set
aside within the current
year's budget. With no work
yet begun, that amount will
be held over for next year's
budget, and, by decision of
the fire commissioners, up to
another $300,000 added.
Renovations will include
stuccoing the station's
weathered metal shell, re-
placing the leaking roof, and
gutting and redoing the
building's interior.
South Walton Fire District
Chief Les Hallman said that


once the Miramar Beach Sta-

Interested persons are advised that a public hearing will be held on the 28th day of June, 2005;
at 8:00 a.m. at the S. Walton County Courthouse Annex, 31 Coastal Centre Boulevard, Santa Rosa
Beach, Florida 32459, before the Board of County Commissioners to consider the elements' of a
Petition filed by NatureWalk Development Compdny, LLC ("Petitioner"), to establish community
development district to be known as the NatureWalk Community Development District ("District"),
as authorized and provided for in Chapter
190, Florida Statutes. A copy of. the .:.
Petition is on file and available for public } -
inspection and/or copying at the Office of i .
the Clerk of Court, Walton County
Courthouse, 571 U.S. Highway 90,
DeFuniak Springs, Florida, between the
hours of 8:00 a.m. arid 4:30 p.m. except
on weekends and holidays.
The information presented at this hear-
ing will be used to afford the Petitioner,
landowners, any affected units of local
government, and the general public, a fair
and adequate opportunity to appear and WaerColor
present oral and written comments
regarding the establishment of the.
District. If adopted, the ordinance will. N-.r
establish the NatureWalk Community .. "-. ^ '
Development District, name its initial Seaside -. 30' =
Board of Supervisors and designate the
land to be serviced by the District. Gulf of M exico
The land area proposed to be. served
by the District is surrounded by the Point
Washington State Forest on its north, south and east boundaries. A small portion of the west
boundary of the land fronts the east side of County Road 395, the northern portion of-the west
boundary is bordered by the Point Washington State Forest, and the southern portion of the west
boundary is bordered by the Watercolor DRI. The District will comprise approximately 153.04 acres
of land. The boundaries of the lands proposed to be served by the District are outlined in the map
depicted in this notice. There is no real property located within the boundaries of the District that
will be excluded from the jurisdiction of the District. The Petitioner has proposed that the District will
construct or acquire certain infrastructure improvements in order to serve a development commonly
referred to as the NatureWalk at Seagrove development.
By way of information, a community development district is. a local unit of special purpose govern-
ment authorized by statute to ensure the provision of infrastructure to serve community develop-
ments subject to state and local regulatory requirements governing the lawful use and development
of the property. Establishment of a district pursuant to Chapter 190, Florida Statutes, is not a devel-
opment order under Chapter 380, Florida Statutes. All planning, permitting and other regulatory
requirements pertaining to development within the land area will be in accordance with general and
special law, and the Walton County Comprehensive Plan.
The Board will comply with section 190.005(2), Florida Statutes, in conducting the public hearing
on whether to establish the District by ordinance. The purpose of this hearing is to consider the
relationship of the petition as submitted by the Petitioner to the six factors listed, in section
,190.005(1)(e), Florida Statutes.
A statement of estimated regulatory costs ("SERC") was prepared by Rizzetta & Company, Inc.,
in compliance with Section 120.541, Florida Statutes, as required by section 190.005, Florida
Statutes. The complete text of the SERC is contained as Exhibit 8 to the Petition. By way of sum-
mary, the SERC estimates that the principal entities likely to be effected by the ordinance are the
State of Florida, Walton County, Florida, and the District, and describes the type of individuals most
affected, by the ordinance as' the landowners within the District. The SERC estimates that establish-
ment and enforcement costs to the above-described entities will be modest and are concurrently
budgeted or not burdensome; and, that there will be little to no effect on state and local revenues
from the establishment of the District. Further, the SERC estimates that certain development-
related transactional costs incurred would occur regardless of whether the District was established
and are voluntarily assumed if at all by and through individuals or entities owning or purchasing
property in the District. Finally, the SERC concludes that the establishment's affect on small busi-
ness will be minimal or positive and the Walton County is neither a small city nor county as defined
by section 120.52, Florida Statutes.
Interested persons are advised that, if a person decides to appeal any decision made by
the County Commission with respect to any matter considered at a hearing, he or she will
need a record of the proceedings, and that, for such purpose, he or she may need to ensure
that a verbatim record of the proceedings is made, which record includes the testimony and
evidence upon which the appeal is to be based.
Persons needing special accommodations to attend any hearing noticed hereinabove as a
result of a disability must contact Ronnie Bell, County Administrator, at 850-892-8156, not
less than forty-eight (48) hours before a hearing or meetings in order to make arrangements.

Group seeks scenic designation


A community meeting open
to the public is planned for
Thursday, June 30, at 5:30
Sp.m. at the SouthWalton
Tourist Development Council
at the junction of U.S. 98 and
331 to address efforts to ob-
tain a Florida scenic highway
designation for CR- 30A
through a program spon-
sored by the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation.
A Florida scenic highway
designation could provide the


common bond that will link
all of CR- 30A's
communities, public lands,
resources, businesses, and
cultural interests to a shared
corridor vision. It might also
elevate the status of the cor-
ridor, increasing the poten-
tial for grant funding.
The Scenic CR-30A Corri-
dor Advocacy Group (CAG)
say they have accomplished
much toward the goal for des-


ignation, but much is yet to
be done. More community in-
volvement is needed to move
this effort forward to gain the
designation of a Florida sce-
nic highway. Volunteers are
needed for input concerning
topics such as a corridor vi-
sion, goals, and protection
techniques, as well as specific
concerns such as transporta-
tion, signage, parking, bi-
cycle/pedestrian paths, waste
removal, lighting and fund-


ing issues.
CR-30A is a unique corri-
dor with versatile character
-- a collection of old (Grayton
Beach) and new (Rosemary.
Beach) and everything in be-
tween.
This effort is fully funded
by grants and is based on ap-
proval by Walton County
Commission Resolution # 02-
60 adopted Dec. 10, 2002.


Ivan debris remains in dune lakes


By DOTTY NIST
As anew hurricane season
starts, Walton County faces
a lingering problem: Hurri-
cane Ivan debris in the
coastal dune lakes.
Walton County Finance
Director William Imfeld said
the county has received
many complaints from citi-
zens about the debris.
In November, following the

Are

prepared?
Hurricane season is here.
"Self-Reliance through
Preparation" is the topic of
two free hurricane prepared-
ness seminars being offered
by Walton County Public In-
formation, Emergency Re-
sponse and the Extension
Service.
The first meeting will be
held on Monday, June 20
from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
at the Coastal Branch Li-
brary in south Walton. The
second meeting will be held
on Tuesday, June 21, at the
Walton County Extension
Service office on Hwy. 83
North in DeFuniak Springs
from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Sept. 2004 hurricane, Walton
County entered into a con-
tract for removal of debris in
south Walton County's 11
dune lakes.
Russ Barry, then county
Public Works director, de-
scribed the debris as "You
name it, it's there." He noted
that it included pieces of bro-
ken docks and boats, plus a
significant amount of plastic
items such as broken beach
and lawn chairs.
The $77,000 contract for
debris removal was awarded
to low bidder Tarheel Spe-
cialties. The only other bid
received exceed that amount
by $267,000.
There was an agreement

with fEMA that the federal
agency would reimburse half
of the clean-up cost.
Some of the debris was re-
moved. However, in April
2005, months after the ex-
pected date of completion,
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows stated that
her office was still receiving
complaints about hurricane
debris in the dune lakes.
Those complaints have con-
tinued. Last month, some
residents of Western Lake
brought concerns about the
debris before the county's
Coastal Dune Lake Advisory
Board. They were assured
that the county is working to
resolve the problem.


Imfeld said the contractor
has been contacted with the
information that Walton
County is not satisfied with
the clean-up efforts. There
has been no payment to the
company, he said.
Imfeld added that the
county is intent on getting
the clean-up work finished,
whether the completion is by
the same contractor or by
someone else.
"We are trying to take the
proper legal course of action,"
he commented.
He and county administra-
tion plan a meeting with
Walton County Legal Ser-
vices on the matter at the end
of the week, he said.


THE GREEN THUMB GARDEN CLUB of Santa Rosa
Beach and the Coastal Branch Library observe National Gar-
den Week, June 5 11, by offering new books donated by the

Water Conservation:

Washing Machines


A washing machine is the second largest water
user in your home, with toilets being first. A tradi-
tional washing machine uses approximately 41
gallons per load. The best way to lower this usage
is to buy a high efficiency washing machine.
These machines use 35-50%, less water and 50%
less energy per load. This will save you money on
both your water and energy bills.


No matter what kind of washing machine
you have. here are some basic tips that can
reduce water use for washing clothes:
SOperate the washer with full loads only -
even if the machine has adjustable load
setting. A full load is the most efficient
way to wash clothes.
SIf your washer has a variable water volume
setting, select the minimum amount
required per load.
Pre-treat stains to avoid rewashing.
Use the shortest wash cycle for
lightly soiled loads.
Check \our machine hoses regularly
for cracks that could result in leaks.

AROUND THE SOUTH


Box office ticket
sales are at an all-
time high for the
summer season.
With the continuing
trend, the summer
movie frenzy could
see another record-
Sbreaking year be-
cause of three flicks.

With this summer's block-
busters exploding on the
screen and the latest install-
ments of some of the biggest
money-grossing pictures of
all time, the summer movie
season is in full swing and
1 the production houses
couldn't be more pleased.
With the return of Darth
Vador and the crew in Star
Wars: Episode Three-Re-
Svenge ofthe Sith, the theaters
have been packed from mid-
,ight Sho' .iiigs to matinei-r .-
Theater-goers have not seen
this type of buzz and reaction
with costume-wearing, la-
ser-carrying characters since
the Rocky Horror Picture
Show or the KISS reunion
tour.
This Star Wars installe-
ment, the latest by director
and creator George Lucas,
and some say his best work
yet with new technology and
special effects is keeping
Star Wars fans on the edge of
their seats in the theaters,
Watching the flick for the
Fifth or sixth time.
The picture is rated PG-13
and is now playing nation-
wide.
For those "skaterdudes,"
the Lords of Dogtown, have
caused an increase of skate-
board sales and fans to hit
Sthe drained pools in the back-
Syard. The movie, under the
direction of Catherine
Hawicke, captures the craze
that started in the 70s when
skateboarding began it s rise
to fame. Skaters zoom in
between automobiles, weave
in and out of traffic and take
to the drained swimming
pools of California, like they
did in the 70s when the state
of California went through a
serious drought and had to
drain the city and county
pools for much needed water.
Despite the fact that it
stars an entire cast of teen-
agers, Lords of Dogtown is
not like other sad-sappy
teeny-bopper movies about
love, heartbreak and the
tough decision of what to


wear to prom. It deals with a
rivalry, an uprising and a
community of skaters,
mostly boys in those days,
that were setting new
grounds and discovering a
soon-to-be well-accepted
sport.
Though there are some
rough scenes and graphic
language, the story is a true
testament to adversity and
overcoming obstacles. This
movie is rated PG-13 and is
now playing nationwide.
The third picture of the
season, is Cinderella Man.
The true-life story of a boxer
who rose above the critics
and adversity.
Many might say that this
movie could be compared to
last fall's big hit, The Million
Dollar Baby, that won for
best director, best actress
and best motion picture in
March at the Academy
Awards, but this flick cen-
ters around a true-to-life
character, James J. Brad-
dock.-
Director Ron Howard, has
once again paired himself
with Russell Crowe, who
plays the boxer from the
Depression Era. It is the first
time the two of them have
collaborated on a picture
since A Beautiful Mind,
where Howard won his first
Oscar for best director.
Cinderella Man centers
around the life of Braddock
and captures the rise and fall
of his boxing career during
the depression of the 1930s.
The screen captures Crowes
athletic and acting ability
only in a way that Ron How-
ard has come to be known.
Perfect film-making.
The movie also stars
newly-wed Renee Zell-
wegger as the boxer's wife.
Both make believers out of
all who watch this true story.
This film is rated PG-13
and is now playing in thea-
ters.
All three summer block-
busters have had rave re-
views and have lines that
wrap around the theaters.
All three capture fantasy,
true story and overcoming
obstacle in their characters'
everyday lives and careers.
Once again Howard and
Lucas have captured our
imaginations and stirred our
minds with their movie di-
rection. Their imaginations
and cinematic dreams have
come to vivid life on the
screen and their Oscar-win-
ning directing will once
again fill the seats at movie
houses across the country.

vestigators with the Division
of Worker's Compensation
when they determine that
the employer has not secured
workers' compensation cover-
age for its employees. Stop
work orders are also issued
to employers that materially
understate or conceal payroll
or materially misrepresent or
conceal employee duties so as
to avoid proper classification
for premium calculations.
"This is another tool that
will aid us in rooting out
those who cheat the system
and raise the costs of those
who play by the rules," said
Gallagher. "I urge contrac-
tors and others to check this
database before you contract
a job. If we find out employ-
ees are working without com-
pensation coverage we'll
shut the job down."
The new database is up-
dated daily and displays em-
ployers who have been issued
stop work orders. It can be
queried by county, month, or
be specific employer.
During the last fiscal year
the Division of Workers'
Compensation, Bureau of
Compliance served 1,791
stop work orders, assessed
over $19 million in penalties,
caused over $25 million in
additional premium to be
written and ensured over
13,000 more employees had
workers'compensation cover-
age.

to 13 mils now, when the gen-
eral county and the law en-
forcement ad valorem taxes
are added together, he said.
Once it is in place, taxes
can rise quickly, Glidewell
thought, pointing out that it
only took Alachua County
about five years to get over
10 mils.
Right now the general
county rate is about 5 mils,
and it is Glidewell's under-
standing that since property
values have risen so dramati-
cally, there will be more
money in the pot without a
tax increase. "Why do we
need it, when we are only
spending about half of what
we can tax?" he wondered.
Glidewell also said the
sheriff is concerned about the
municipalities being able to
opt in or out, and is also con-
cerned that it will make
county finances harder, not
easier, for the public to un-
derstand. The costs of the
new jail and other expenses
cannot be included in the
fund, so the public will not
have a true picture of the to-
tal cost of law enforcement.
The Walton County Tax-
payers Association is also re-
searching the ordinance.
Bonnie McQuiston, presi-
dent, said that any new
method of taxation raises a
red flag. "Before another new
layer of taxation is imposed

under certain circumstances,
for rights in property to re-
vert back to another person.
The court examined Kelly's
will, which is 23 pages in
length, and "contains numer-
ous bequests to family mem-
bers, individuals, and to re-
ligious, educational, and
other organizations."
The court concluded from
the length, detail, and com-
plexity of the will, that Kelly
was "an astute woman with
great knowledge of real es-
tate transactions," and that
she had had the benefit of
legal advice in planning her
estate.
From this, and the testi-
mony of Richburg and Perri,
the court concluded that "if
Mattie Kelly intended for the
subject property to be
placed in a trust, and if she
desired to put restrictions on
the subject.property to pre-
vent Defendant Foundation
from selling it, she knew how
to accomplish this, and that
she chose not to do so."
On the second count of the
complaint, the court found no
language creating a reverter
clause, nor a charitable trust.
Citing cases establishing
property and trust law in
Florida, the court held that,
absent express language, re-
strictions on property in the
form ofrerverter clauses and
trusts must be express, and
that the plaintiffs had not
carried their burden of prov-
ing the existence of any re-
sulting trust.
The court found that the
proposed sale did not include
an approximately one-half
acre parcel, called the "mau-
soleum property," which con-
tains Kelly's mausoleum and

on the people, it needs to be
thoroughly researched to see
if it is needed," she said.
BCC Chair Ken Pridgen
told the Beach Breeze he isn't
sure where the ordinance
came from, either. He said he
thought former county attor-
ney Gary Vorbeck might have
looked into it after an April
informational meeting on
MSTU's and MSBU's.

In any case, "There are
pros and cons to everything,"
Pridgen said, and that he
would make up his mind af-
ter looking at all sides.
In general, he thought it
would be sort of like the
school board, which taxes
separately and has control
over their own budget. "I
think the Sheriff will ben-
efit," Pridgen said, because it
will fund the same things
being funded now, while giv-
ing the sheriff more control
over his budget.
The BCC will have two
public hearings on the ordi-
nance, on June 14 and June
28. In order to implement it
this year, the ordinance must
be adopted by July 1. If
adopted, it will be the first
county-wide special taxing
district. Currently there are
separate taxing districts in
certain limited locations,
such as the South Walton
Fire District.

access to the bay.
Finally, the court held that
all proceeds from the pro-
posed sale of the property,
including any matching
funds, are "to be used in the
establishment and operation
of the Mattie M. Kelly Cul-
tural and Environmental In-
stitute."
Following this decision, the
OWC Foundation released a
statement confirming its de-
cision to go forward with the
proposed $8.1 million sale of
the parcel.
OWC intends to pursue
matching state funds "as
soon as appropriate." Receipt
of'these funds, along with
the sale proceeds, could ex-
pand the OWC Mattie Kelly
Culturalaand Environmental
Institute Endowment to ap-
proximately $13.5 million.
President Richburg says
that the endowment will be
used to "underwrite cultural
and environmental endeav-
ors as Mrs. Kelly envisioned
in making her gift to the col-
lege...."
Among these endeavors
will be naming the OWC Arts
Center Complex the Mattie
Kelly Fine and Performing
Arts Center.
Additionally, funds will be
applied to the OWC
Choctawhatchee Basin Alli-
ance to monitor and improve
the quality of the bay.
Also planned is an annual
Mattie Kelly Environmental
Symposium, a Mattie Kelly
Endowed Faculty Chair in
Environmental Sciences, and
a Mattie Kelly Sculpture and
Art Acquisition Collection.
At press time, the attorney
for plaintiffs could not be
reached for comment.
