County to manage



city park complex
C OY 17X


By RONKELLEY
The DeFuniak Springs
City Council agreed to enter
into an interlocal agreement
with county government to
provide management by the
county's Parks and Recre-
ation Department for the
city's Gene Hurley Park rec-
reation complex, west of the
airport.
County .Administrator
- Ronnie Bell said the Freeport
City Council approved a.
similar plan for management
of their public pool. Bell said
they would manage the Gene
Hurley Park facility to en-
hance the services available
at the park.
Bell also said the county
plans to build a 25,000
Square foot building at Wee
Care Park and at Helen
McCall Park. He told the
council members, "You have
a beautiful facility out at
Gene Hurley Park, but it
needs work. We have the re-
sources to fix the fields and
we're looking at more adult
programs, too, and not just
children's programs." Bell
also said the city and county
have appeared to be in com-
petition regarding parks and
recreation, which is counter-
productive. He said he'd
rather work with the city to
improve'the former National
Guard Armory than to spend
money to put a new building
out at Wee Care Park.
Councilman Mark Ander-
son agreed that he is also
eager to discuss mutual co-
operative efforts to rehab the
armory. Anderson said he re-
ally would welcome the
county's assistance with the
armory building and Bell
promised to take it back to
the county recreation board.
Bell said he would return
with a draft agreement, out-
lining the physical and finan-
cial responsibilities of each
entity for the council's ap-
proval.
In other council news,
Councilman Roy McLeod
motioned to instruct the in-
terim city manager to nego-
tiate an agreement and the
motion passed unanimously.
The council set a public
hearing date for Earlene and
Theresa Johnson regarding
an application for a home-
based business. The hearing
date is July 5 during the
council's regular meeting.
Arthur Williams appeared
before the council regarding
a zoning variance request to
operate an automobile detail-
ing business. The city's plan-
ning commission voted to ap-
prove the request. Council-
man Roy McLeod motioned
to approve the request and
the motion passed unani-


mously.
Mayor Harold Carpenter
was absent due to illness and
Councilman James Coffield
was out of town. Mayor Pro-
Tempore James Huffman
conducted the meeting in
Carpenter's absence.
The council considered a
request to waive the fees for
the renting of the Chautau-
qua Hall of Brotherhood by
the DeFuniak Springs Gar-
den Club.
Councilman Don Harrison
said the free event is to say
thank-you to the city and he
motioned to approve the re-
quest, which passed unani-
mously.
The Christmas Reflections
Committee asked for ap-
proval to make some renova-
tions to the Boy Scout Hut
building. Earl Alford Con-
struction submitted the low-
est bid of $12,995 for replac-
ing roof, install vinyl siding
and other improvements.
The funds would come from
the CR accounts.
The Walton County Asso-
ciation for Retarded Citizens
(ARC) asked for a raise to
provide roadside mainte-
nance along the right-of-
ways inside the city, but the
Florida Department of
Transportation provides a
fixed amount to the city for
the job, so there will be no in-
crease. The council voted to
award the job to ARC for the
same amount as last year,
$49,177.
The council also discussed
running a waterline and wa-
ter mains down Coy Burgess
Loop from U.S. 331 to Beach
Street. CHELCO Services
provided the low bid for the
job at $56,363. The bid was
approved unanimously.
Gum Creek Farms submit-
ted a bid of $605,910 for im-
provements to the DeFuniak
Springs City Airport. How-
ever, that figure is short of
the estimated cost .by
$170,000. Interim City Man-
ager Larry Laird explained
that grant funds will likely
pick up the slack and the city
voted to approve the bid, con-
tingent upon receiving the
discretionary funding for im-
proving airport taxiway 'A.'
The council also voted to
proceed to officially advertise
the annexation of property
on Steel Church Road that
borders I-10 on the western
side of U.S. 331, adjoining
the Myers property.
The city also approved a
resolution to initiate $3 mil-
lion bond issue for expanding
the city's water expansion
project.
The council discussed the
need of selecting another au-
diting firm for next year's fi-


nancial audit.
The council also voted to
sell out-of-date fire depart-
ment for over $12,000.
Airport security fencing
bids 'came back supporting
American Imperial Fencing
for the amount of about
$308,000. The bid was ap-
proved.
R, ,,.IJi;i, an outstanding
bill from CSX Railroad, City
Attorney Clayton Adkinson
reported that he had contin-
ued to renegotiate the bill.
He said CSX had agreed to a
final price of $3,876, saving
the city over $2,400 off the
original bill. The council
voted to accept the adjusted
amount and pay the bill.
The council also discussed
giving Assistant City Man-
ager Larry Laird a 15 per-
cent raise for acting as in-
terim city manager. Council-
man Roy McLeod suggested
an alternative, offering the
same increase as the perma-
nent salary for Laird's regu-
lar position as assistant city
manager and the council ap-
proved unanimously.
Incidentally, Laird said the
city has received 26 applica-
tions for the top job and more
are expected. "We anticipate
we'll reach 30 applications
before we're through," he
said.


Citizens


protest,


"No new


taxes!"
BY TIANA LARSEN
An ordinance that would
have created a new, separate
taxing district to fund the
Walton County Sheriff's Of-
fice was stopped dead in its
tracks at the first reading
before the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) and a stand-
ing-room only audience of
citizens.
After a lengthy presenta-
tion by Bonnie McQuiston on
behalf of the Walton County
Taxpayers Association, a mo-
tion by District 1 Commis-
sioner Scott Brannon to dis-
approve the Municipal Ser-
vice Taxing Unit (MSTU) or-
dinance was unanimously
approved by the BCC in short
order.
Before the vote was taken
and McQuiston made her re-
marks, District 3 Commis-
sioner Larry Jones noted
that it was not the BCC's in-

Florida Department of
Education released school
grades June 8 for all the
schools in all counties
throughout the state. The
grade a school earns is based
on standardized math, read-
ing and writing test scores,
annual learning gains, and
other factors, such as atten-
dance records. The schools
were also notified of where
they stand on the federal
standard for "adequate
yearly progress" under the
No Child Left Behind Act.
The majority of Walton
County schools maintained A
or B grades, but all four high
schools earned "C" grades.
Walton Academy, an alterna-
tive education placement fa-
cility, received an "F".
Three of the four elemen-
tary schools earned an "A"
grade. Butler, Freeport and
West DeFuniak retained an
"A" grade from 2004 while
Maude Saunders slid.from
an "A" to a "B" in 2005.
Seaside Neighborhood
Middle School received an
"A" grade while Walton and
Freeport Middle Schools re-
ceived a "B" grade. All three
schools received the same
grades in 2004.
Freeport High School was
the only school to improve its
score in the county as it went
from a "D" in 2004 to a "C" in
2005.
All four high schools, how-


ever, were graded as not
meeting the federal stan-
dards for "adequate yearly
progress" under the No Child
Left Behind Act.
Walton County will experi-
ment with reading classes
next year at the middle and
high school levels in an at-
tempt to boost reading scores
that are a big part of FCAT,
as well as the grades schools
attain from how students do
on the test. Schools earn
points based on how well stu-
dents do in math, reading
and writing and whether or
not the students improve
from year to year. The state
gives bonus money to schools
that receive an "A" grade.
Schools that do poorly are
subject to penalties.
The worst public schools
must allow students to at-
tend private schools on
vouchers, a policy that has
caused much uproar over the
last few years and is cur-
rently,under review by the
state Supreme Court.

In Holmes County,
Bethlehem received a "C"
grade. Ponce de Leon El-
ementary and High School
each received a "C" grade.
Poplar Springs got the worst
grade in the county with a
"D". Bonifay received the
best scores as the elemen-
tary, middle, and high school
each were graded as "B"
schools.

Governor awards grant to DFS


On Monday, Governor Jeb
Bush awarded a rural infra-
structure fund grant for
$84,000 to the city of DeFu-
niak Springs to assist in the
development of the DeFu-
niak Springs Municipal Air-
port. The grant provides
funding for construction of a
maintenance hangar and in-
frastructure improvements
to spur business develop-
ment in the area, including
an expansion of Monarch
Aviation, an aircraft avionics
installation, repair, and cer-
tification operation at the
airport.
"The city of DeFuniak
Springs continues to improve
its economy by making good
use of the State Enterprise
Zone Program, as well as
maximizing state business
development grants and in-
centives," said Governor Jeb
Bush. "By complimenting the
commitment and efforts of
our rural communities, the
state's rural infrastructure
fund serves as a solid tool to
make possible important
projects. I applaud the city
for its focus on economic di-
versification and am proud of
our partnership to


strengthen their economy."

The state's rural infra-
structure fund investment of
$84,000 will match a portion
of the $282,000 city-led
project, which includes en-
hancements to sewer and
water lines, access road ex-
tensions, apron and parking
facility paving, .and hangar
construction. The city of De-


Funiak Springs owns the
municipal airport and all re-
lated infrastructure facilities
are on city property.

"We are extremely pleased
that the municipal airport
projects are working like eco-
nomic building blocks, The
governor's office came
through in a time of real need
last year with the Aero-FX,


airplane-refurbishing
project. We are now able to
recruit Monarch Aviation be-
cause of the previous infra-
structure improvements,
plus these new additions,"
said Harold Carpenter,
mayor of the city of DeFu-
niak Springs. "I'm overjoyed
with the efforts of the Gover-
nor and his staff for their as-
sistance to our community."


THREE PLANES are set for maintenance and repair inside the new hangars at the
DeFuniak Springs Airport. The hangars are part of the city's newest airport expansion

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 16, 2005

Bronson asks

residents to

report price-gouging


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson
today urged state residents
to report any instances of
price-gouging to his depart-
ment in the wake of Tropical
Storm Arlene.
.Under Florida law, it is un-
lawful to charge exorbitant or
excessive prices for essential
items -including shelter,
gasoline, food, water, ice, gen-
erators or lumbe- following
the declaration of an emer-
gency, unless the increases in
the amount charged are at-
tributable to additional costs
incurred by retailers.
Governor Jeb Bush de-
clared an emergency late Fri-


day, triggering the activation
of the price-gouging statute.
Individuals or businesses
found to have engaged in
price-gouging face fines of up
to $1,000 per violation, or up
to a maximum fine of $25,000
a day.
"We're asking consumers to
come forward and let us
know if any retailers have
exploited our citizens or are
profiteering from the storm,"
Bronson said. "This activity
is not only reprehensible, it's
illegal."

To report price-gouging
call the department's toll-
free hotline at 1-800-
HELPFLA (1-800-435-7352).

O-W College District Board of Trustees approve budget


Th- Okaloosa-Walton Col-
lege District Board of Trust-
ees approved a $25,292,078
college general operating
budget for fiscal year 2005-
'06 at its June 7 meeting. The
budget is a 3.4 percent in-
crease over the previous year.
Included in the budget is a
provision for a five percent
increase in student tuition at
OWC, action that resulted
from the tuition range set by
the Florida Legislature dur-
ing the recent legislative ses-
sion.
Even with the increase, col-
lege officials say all OWC tu-
ition rates, including fees for
upper-division courses of-
fered through the new
bachelor's degree programs,
will be the lowest in Florida
of any public college or uni-
versity.
The new fees take effect
July 1 and will be $55.45 per
credit hour in-state for fresh-
man and sophomore courses
and $65.88 for upper-division
courses in the college's new
management and nursing
bachelor's degree programs.
The OWC budget also pro-



DOH

urges

preparation

S As we prepare for this
year's hurricane season, the
Florida Department of
Health (DOH) is urging Flo-
ridians to take the appropri-
ate steps to adequately en-
sure their health and safety.
"This hurricane season, I
encourage Floridians to take
all the necessary precautions
to protect themselves and
their families," said DOH
Secretary John 0. Agwunobi,
M.D., M.B.A., M.P.H. "Data
gathered last year helped
verify that most hurricacd
ikelated deaths and injuries,
ban be prevented witl i'I' "
planning and simple precau-
tions."
A significant number of
older Floridians with chronic
medical conditions appear to
have suffered acute exacer-
bations of their underlying
illnesses associated with
overexertion during home
repair and clean up efforts.
A number of carbon monox-
ide poisonings, blunt trauma,
electrocutions and motor ve-
hicle accident related injuries
.and deaths were also re-
ported in association with the
hurricanes.
It is important that every
family plan contemplate
ways to protect individuals
from the very real threat
Sposed by a hurricane as it
impacts a community. But it
is also critical that the plan
recognize and protect the
family for the very real haz-
ards that emerge in the hours
and days that follow.
The following are safety
tips for this hurricane sea-
son:
S Never use a generator or
grill indoors, including in
homes, garages, basements,
crawl spaces, and other en-
closed or partially-enclosed
areas, even with ventilation.
Never place a generation
near air conditioning units or
open windows where carbon
monoxide can enter the in-
door air supply.
Never assume that water-
damaged structures are safe;
leave immediately if shifting
or unusual noises occur.
Avoid working on roofs.
Contact a licensed profes-
sional to clean and repair
roofs.
When using a ladder, rest
it on a solid, level surface and
make sure it is securely held
at the base by one or two
people.
Avoid lifting large and
heavy debris or building ma-
terials. Two or more physi-


cally active people should
move bulky objects.
Do not work alone. Clean-
up work should be done in
pairs or groups.
Set priorities for clean-up
tasks and pace the work over
several days or weeks.
Take breaks and only work


vides for a three percent sal-
ary raise for OWC staff,
$100,000 for the purchase of
books and related items for
the Learning Resources Cen-
ter and $1,770,248 in fund-
ing for campus-wide renova-
tion/remodeling.
In other action, OWC

Editor's Comment




It's a mad, mad, mad world


By RON KELLEY

It's a jungle out there, populated by-some real truly bewil-
dered folk. I should know, I often hear from them, usually
by e-mail. I don't mind, though. It keeps my life interesting.
In researching news, I also come across stories that are
too strange to be anything but fact. I'm nhot talking about
those wacky checkout line tabloids full of alien babies and
the latest Elvis sighting. No, the best ones are those cov-
ered by established news sources like Associated Press,
Reuters and major newspapers.
For instance, did you catch the AP story about the porn
star who will be attending this year's President's Dinner,
an annual fund-raising event by the Republican Party, fea-
turing President Bush?
It's true. Mary Carey, who plans to run for lieutenant gov-
ernor of California next year said, "I also have a brain and
political aspirations." Regarding the $5,000 donation Carey
and her adult film executive producer made, RNCC spokes-
man Carl Forti said, "We'll take that money and use it to
elect more Republicans."
This must be part of some interesting new 'family values'
policy.
Here's another story from the wild, wild west a former
stripper has exchanged her pasties for a long, black robe
and become a municipal court judge in Henderson, Nevada.
For 39-year-old Diana Hampton, who put herself through
college by pole-dancing, it must be true what they say what
happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
Then there was the madd, madd Chicago Tribune story
about the new head of Mothers Against Drunk Driving
(M.A.D.D.). She is a he. For the first time in history, a man,



Dear Editor,

As president of the DeFuniak Business and Professional
Association, it has come to my attention that the DeFuniak
City Council is considering amendments to its sign ordi-
nance that would make the ordinance more restrictive.
As a civic organization dedicated to positive growth and
managed development, we must protest additional restric-
tions put on business owners within the city. Although we
recognize the need for careful management of our resources,
it is vital for the city's economic future that we, as a city, do
not project an image of being 'anti-business.'
; Having owned and operated two successful businesses in
'this community, I understandable need for effective signage,
as well as the frustration of being limited by a somewhat
restrictive sign ordinance.
Additionally, recent efforts by the city to enforce its exist-
ing ordinance have been expensive for the city (and the tax-
payers who must pay the city's costs), as well as for the busi-
nesses themselves. This appears to serve no one's best in-
terests.
Having lost the economic benefit of Perdue Farms, the
DBPA feels that any further restrictions upon new and ex-
isting businesses would be short-sighted and would provide
no benefit to the general populace.
The DBPA fully understands the dangers of excessive
signage and the negative effects of'eyesores.'However, there
are real and present challenges facing the city already and
the DPBA feels that making the existing sign ordinance even
more restrictive does nothing to address any of these chal-
lenges and only makes it more difficult to do business in the
city of DeFuniak Springs. I
We are urging the members of the council to carefully con-
sider the long-term ramifications of any further amendments
to the sign ordinance. We would welcome a chance to meet
with the council at any time and discuss ways to improve
the business climate and strengthen the city's economic foun-
dation for the benefit of our community.

Sincerely,
Sara Comander
DBPA president

Glynn Birch, of Orlando, has been named president of the
organization.
Did you hear about the former New York forest ranger
who accidentally started a fire during a presentation at an
elementary school? According to Associated Press, Gary
Hodgson was trying'to demonstrate how early American
settlers started fire without matches when some gunpow-
der ignited. He was hospitalized with burns to the face,
hands and chest and the school was evacuated. No children
were hurt.
Then there was the story about a London college student,
Ebony Andrews, who is using dead animals, including
roadkill, to create 'art.' Uh, that's all you want to know about
this, trust me. The Northumbria University student said
the response to her exhibition "has been positive."
Not from the local rabbit, owl or squirrel population, I'm
betting.
In entertainment news, an MTV-sponsored eating contest
was won by Sonya Thomas, who already holds the world's
record for gulping boiled eggs. This time, Sonya wolfed down
10 boxes of popcorn in 12 minutes and then two more boxes
in a dead-heat runoff to win the $10,000 prize gift package.
What, no movie?
Finally, what are the odds of hitting a million-dollar lot-
tery? Actually, they are 1.44 million to 1, but that's nothing
compared to the odds of doing it twice in less than six months.
The name of the luckiest woman in.the world is Donna
Goeppert of Bethlehem, PA.
My question is, after winning just a few months before,
why was she still playing?
The answer is because it's a mad, mad, mad world!





Editor:
I normally don't respond to things related to the county
because of my employment with the county, but I felt com-
pelled to do so this time.
I did enjoy your editorial concerning the temporary facili-
ties that Mr. Cuchens has been trying to implement for the
animal control. However, there were a couple of points that
I would like to comment on.
You stated that at the June 29, 2004 commissioner's meet-
ing that Jackie Malone presented a proposal in favor of us-
ing the D & D pet Motel for a temporary site, and Ronnie
Bell asked the BCC to reject the proposal "due to the prop-
erty not meeting the county's needs." I thought that Ms.
Malone had offered the property for sale to the county and
they declined because they did not want to purchase it. She
then sold it to the present owner who, in turn, is leasing it
to the county. I did check the minutes and they did not
specify, but I would suggest that the actual tapes be lis-
tened to.
Next, you stated figures given for the costs of operating
the facility. These figures included veterinarian services and
an additional ACO. If the ACOS do not have to spend sev-
eral hours a day transporting animals to Chipley, then there
would be no need for an additional ACO. Also, the $263,000
you gave for Dr. Anderson's services does not include vet
services. He very plainly stood up at the meeting when he
was "negotiating" his contract with the county and stated
he would not be providing these services. What services he
has provided were extra costs to the county.
You take objection to the county putting money into a pri-
vate property. The county leases private property all over
the county. They even lease space for storage. They are in
effect leasing the chicken houses in Chipley for $263,000 a
year now. And you stated that it will relieve the pressure on
the commissioners to build a county facility. I can assure
that I, as a private citizen, am keeping up the pressure for
them to build a great facility.
Also you said that, The new 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 ate being incurred much sooner than later."
What difference does it make when the costs are incurred.
The sooner the better, in my opinion. We don't seem to mind
that $263,000 a year is being spent now, and won't be later.
It is ironic that one of the reasons the former commission-
ers gave for dumping the Humane Society was costs, and
that the county could do it cheaper. I can't recall the exact
figure of the Humane Society bid, but I think it was around
$180,000. What happened to the savings there?
We have been waiting for two years for a shelter to be
available, by whatever means, to be opened in Walton
County. Mr. Cuchens has tried and tried to move things for-
ward. But apparently someone in the county is way too com-
fortable with the setup in Chipley with'Dr. Anderson. Two
more years to wait for one is too long.
The residents of Walton County need a facility close by to
take unwanted animals. The Chipley situation is and has
been unacceptable, no matter how great a guy Dr. Anderson
is. Ask the ACOs what they think of it, and if they answer
honestly, they will tell you that it is very inconvenient for
everyone, not to mention the animals. If we can get some-
thing open sooner, then I think it is the best way.

Editor,
I recently read that 70 percent of roads in the U.S. were
still dirt.
The U.S. Congress, the House and Senate, is a big rubber
stamp for the president and his "spread democracy program",
which also means tons of money for war and the least pos-
sible for domestic programs.
Recently, the Senate pressed for a sizeable increase in high-
way spending and, of course, the president threatened to
veto such a bill. It is past time for Congress to show some
independence and give him the opportunity to veto over and
over again.
Since when did it become the duty or right of the presi-
dent to launch, with tax payer money and a rubber stamp
congress, a crusade for world democracy? He doesn't have
either, but just declared he does and a compliant, subservi-
ent Congress kow-tows right along.
Under the federal constitution, as if that means anything
today, the House of Representatives holds the purse strings.
If it had the backbone, it could do a whole lot by strategi-
cally opening and closing them. It has awesome bargaining
power. For example, when the president asks for billions in
Iraq, the House could counter for billions in roads and to
make the Mexican boarder air-tight and bull strong.
GWB would immediately hit TV with accusations of en-
dangering U:S. troops. But wait, who put them in danger in
the first place? Who ordered the Iraqi invasion after falsely
accusing it over and over of having WMD? GWB couldn't
wait for the U.N. to do what it could, and it probably could
have done much more than it did. He wanted war, issued
ultimatums that could not be fulfilled, and got war with
U.S. tax dollars, and in so doing, stepped in a bucket filled
not with perfume, but dung, and remains there today.
It is really sad that 70 percent of U.S. roads are unpaved
while enormous amounts of taxes are extracted from citi-
zens and squandered abroad.
The federal government is responsible for securing the
borders. It is failing to do so and has done so for years. The
president is only mildly interested. The Mexican govern-
ment either can't or won't do anything to slow its out of
control population growth, so the pressure on the border
will continue unabated.
In many ways, our future doesn't look too bright, and the
president and his rubber stamp Congress isn't helping any.

TAXES


tention to raise taxes, but to
make a clear distinction be-
tween the BCC budget and
the sheriff's budget, which is
currently paid for out of gen-
eral revenue raised by the
county's ad valorem taxes on
real property.
The separate taxing dis-
trict would have identified
the sheriff's office budget as
a line item on taxpayers'
oills, but it would have al-
lowed an additional 10 mils
(a mil is $1 for every $1000
of taxable property) over and
above the 10 mils the BCC
can tax for the general fund,
a new allowable total of 20
mils.
Citizens feared that al-
though the BCC had said
they would reduce the gen-
eral ad valorem rate to off-
set the new tax, it could even-
tually lead to higher taxes.
The Taxpayers Associa-
tion recommendation to for-


FROM FRONT


get the MSTU came with sev-
eral other recommendations
regarding the sheriff's office
budget, which McQuiston
termed "out of control."
"No one wants to be per-
ceived as not supporting law
enforcement, but, the budget
increase at the sheriff's office
is unacceptable," McQuiston
said.
The WCTA asked for a
separate, all-day workshop
concerning the sheriff's bud-
get, and also asked for de-
tailed data to justify the bud-
get increase be provided in
time for analysis before the
millage rate for this year is
proposed in July.
McQuiston also suggested
hiring a consultant to ana-
lyze the sheriff's budget and
to break out the jail costs.
If these steps are not
taken, an MSTU could be
necessary in the future, she
warned.

MEET DR. DEBORAH MILKOWSKI


.-. Did you know that,
i according to the American
Lung Association, lung
[- disease is the number
three killer of Americans,
responsible for one in
Seven deaths? Did you
also know that lung
disease is, not only a
killer, but most lung
diseases are chronic? Many Americans live
with chronic lung diseases, such as asthma and
emphysema. Or chronic obstructive pulmonary,
disease (COPD). One of the newest members to
join the Crestview community is physician
Deborah Milkowski, M.D., with North Okaloosa
Medical Center, Dr. Milkowski specializes in
pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine.
We recently sat down to discuss her background
and areas of specialty as she opens her practice
and prepare-, to meet patients.

IN ADDITION TO BEING ON STAFF AT
NORTH OKALOOSA MEDICAL CENTER, TELL
US ABOUT YOUR NEW PRACTICE AND THE
TYPES OF SERVICES YOU WILL OFFER.
My practice, the Okaloosa Pulmonary and Sleep
Medicine Clinic, is located at 550 W. Redstone
Avenue, Suite 340. Primarily, I treat the full
spectrum of lung diseases as well as a full range
of sleep disorders. Most of our procedures and
treatment services will be conducted at North
Okaloosa Medical Center; however, imperative
diagnostic functions can be conducted on the
first floor in the medical building. For instance,
we can test a patients lung capacity and
function at the pulmonary functions lab
downstairs from the pulmonary clinic.

WHATATTTRACTED YOU TO THIS AREA?
My husband and I both come from the Air
Force. I was a Major and served a little over ten
years (six months of that time overseas in
Turkey following the events of September 11,
2001). My husband was recently transferred to
Eglin Air Force Base. We both like the area and
are very excited to be here. We like to sail, so
its great to be close to the water. This town is
quaint, and the people are warm and friendly.
We consider it a bit of an unknown gem.
Also, I know that there is a certain void in
specialty healthcare in this community, and I m
thankful that I can help fill that void. I look
forward to becoming involved as a physician
and s a new member of the community.

WHAT KIND OF IMPACT DID YOUR
MILITARY BACKGROUND HAVE ON YOUR
MEDICAL CAREER?
Certainly, I think I had very good training in the
military. The facility where I trained, Wilford
Hall Medical Center at Lackland Air Force Base
in San Antonio, Texas, had a very large trauma
center and intensive care unit. The high volume
of patients and the number of patients with.
unique or very challenging diagnoses served
to be excellent experiences for me.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE PULMONARY AND
CRITICAL CARE AS YOUR MAIN AREAS
OF SPECIALTY?
Pulmonary healthcare (related to the lungs)
and critical care Healthcaree provided to a
critically ill patient during a medical emergency
or crisis) is becoming more of a packaged
specialty for doctors. I was attracted to the
breadth of pulmonary medicine and its wide
range of diagnoses and treatment options
and the challenge of the intensive care units.


YOU ALSO TREAT SLEEP DISORDERS.
IS THERE A CORRELATION BETWEEN
PULMONARY AND RESPIRATORY
DYSFUNCTIONS AND SLEEP DISORDERS?
The connection hetreen sleep medicine and
pulmonary medicine is a fairly recent one within
the medical Cr.mmrunriry and the grineral public.
The study of sleep medicine is very broad and
originally derived from the psychology/neurology
fields. However, approximately 80-85 percent of
patients that suffer from sleep disorders actually
suffer from a respiratory-related condition known
as Obstructive Sleep Apnea, which is how
pulmonary medicine has become integrated into
the world of sleep disorders,

Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a disorder in which a
person stops breathing multiple times during the
night for periods of 10 seconds or more, because
their airways become relaxed or somehow
obstructed. Medical experts in sleep medicine
and pulmonary medicine developed a successful,
non-invasive treatment for Obstructive Sleep
Apnea called Conlinuous Positive Airway
Pressure ConulirIous Posilive Air 'Jay Pi-,IIrec
or "CPAP" is a procedure involving a mask that
blows positive air pressure 'over the nose and
mouth to counteralfeci the negative forces that
cause the airways to close. CPAP is a treatment
option not just for sleep apnea patients, but
for people who suffer from other pulmonary
disorders such as asthma, as well.

WHATARE SOME OF THE MOST COMMON
TYPES OF LUNG DISEASES?
.Certainly, some of the most prevalent and
well-known diseases include emphysema,
asthma and lung cancer. There are some lesser
known pulmonary disorders which fall under a
large category of interstitial lung diseases, such
as Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF), and
medication-induced interstitial lung diseases.

WHATARE SOME OF THE MOST COMMON
AND SUCCESSFUL TREATMENT OPTIONS?
Asthma is a common occurrence today, and
there are very good medical treatments
available Most asthma cases can be treated
so that patients can live :neir lives fully
without any interference from their symptoms.
That s the goal of asthma treatment.

Most lung cancers and emphysema are associated
with tobacco use and secondhand smoke, and
they are preventable. However, there are some
lung cancer patients that may have never smoked
a cigarette in their life. Adenocarcinoma is one
type of lung cancer that is not always related to
tobacco use or exposure to cigarette. smoke, but
it should be noted that cigarette smoking increases
the likelihood of this type of lung cancer as well.
Many patients can greatly decrease the likelihood
of suffering from lung disease and increase their
overall health and well-being when they stop
smoking. North 'Okaloosa MIdical Center offers
smoking cessation programs designed to help
people sloop snmikinf I inrcouragj, my patients
to learn as much as possible about preventive
measures and factors .:iihin their control that
can help prevent such diseases from occurring.

WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU LIKE NEW
PATIENTS AND MEMBERS OF THE
COMMUNITY TO KNOW ABOUT YOU AS
A NEW PHYSICIAN IN THE AREA?
I look forward to becoming part of the Crestview
medical community and adding my expertise to
the list of medical specialties at North Okaloosa
Medical Center. I am especially excited about
the opportunity to serve my new community,
meet new people and treat new patients.

by her office at 550 W. Redstone Avenue, Suite 340, Crestview, FL 32536.

DESTINATIONS


Turks and Caicos Islands, BWI


Photos and story by
CHUCK HINSON
Deep in the Caribbean Sea,
nestled among the British
West Indies, Haiti and the
Dominican Republic, lies a
chain of islands that is still
considered a diamond in the
rough. The Turks and Caicos
Islands have been a hidden
getaway for many years, but
soon will be a hot spot desti-
nation.
The Turks and Caicos Is-
lands consist of 40 islands,
only eight of which are still
inhabited. The British-
Sowned islands are made up of
the North Caicos, Provide-
cials, Middle Caicos, South
Caicos, East Caicos, West
Caicos, and the capital is-
land, Grand Turks.
Combined, the islands fea-
ture the world's third largest
coral system, 225 square
miles of white sand beaches
and endless water sports.
Each one of the islands are


only a boat or plane ride
away, but the Providencials
is the urban center of the
Turks and Caicos. Known as
"Provo," the island offers all
the modern conveniences one
could desire while still keep-
ing in mind that everything
on the island is mostly im-
ported in from other islands
and countries.
Like Hawaii, Aruba, or
even the Bahamas, the
Turks and Caicos Islands are
a string of islands that are
surrounded by some of the
most beautiful, unspoiled
beaches, greenery and wild-
life on earth. It is an amazing
array of turqoiuse, green,
aqua and tiel colors that can
be possibly captured on film.
The beaches of the islands
are a combination of coral,
limestone and white sands.
Sands that is so white it is
blinding and so pure, a hand-
ful fills like melted butter.
Surrounding island waters


go out 6-8 miles, with visibil-
ity still extremely clear to
the ocean floor. The views
from any part of the island
are breath taking and the
colors of the water and late
afternoon sunsets or unde-
scribeable.
For the most part, the
Turks and Caicos islands are
a third-world country that is
seeing and reaping the bene-
fits of the new-found tourism
boom. Many of the streets
that branch off the main
road, Leeward Highway, are
still unpaved, filled with
rocks and shells and often
flooded by the occasional
rainfall.
But the end result when
-arriving at your hotel, condo--
minium or rental house, is
well worth the bumpy ride.
From Salt Key, to Grace
Bay, the beaches and
surfside are unforgettable.
Conch and angel shell line
the beaches and marine life


seems to never stop swim-
ming around your feet.
It's almost as if they are
just as happy to see you as
the locals.
If you are looking for end-
less nightlife, club-hopping,
or either casinos, Turks and
Caicos aren't for you. It is an
island that requires the
imagination of her tourists
to provide themselves with
an evening of fun.
SThere are several locations
to dine while on the island,
but be warned: since they are
islands, produce, meats,
milk, most alcohol and even
some seafood, have to be
imported and it is quite
costly to dine out.
Though you might opt to
stay in one of the many re-
sorts that are along the
stretch of Grace Bay and dine
in their on-site restaurants,
there are three I would rec-

SUNSETS ARE LIKE no other in Turks and Caicos
Islands. Sunset usually hits around 8 p.m. and an array of
magnificent colors can be seen from any part of the island.


"ALONG THE ROADSIDES, many local artists have stands and gallerie.'.iuch as this
one. Their art varies from scenic landscapes, to Caribbean idol, Bob Marley.

ROCK AND LIMESTONE formations stick out of the water and form various shapes
and forms all throughout the islands. It is one of the .fop spots for snorkeling and fish
watching.

THE DEFT NIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 16, 2005


Passing religious

beliefs to one's children
SBY DR. ROBERT M. JAYE
SThe story of Ruth and Naomi is a good place to consider
this subject. One of the questions most asked of ministers
is, "How can I best pass on my religious beliefs to my chil-
dren?" Our belief in Christ is very important to us. Ruth
said, in Ruth 1:16-17, "Intreat me not to leave thee, or to
return from following after thee...thy people shall be my
people, and thy God my God..." That is how we want our
children to be.
It takes compassion when religion is passed on to chil-
S dren. It is a big part of Christian witnessing. Real compas-
sion is shown in care for individuals. One must show real
compassion and concern for children.
Compassion expresses itself in consistent behavior. One
does not just talk about the Christian faith, but lives it daily.
It is not abstract in its expression; it is concrete. It shows
not only correction; it shows compassion as well. Love for
the Lord is always shown.
When Christianity is passed on to children, there is their
choice to be with our best guidance, not force, Ruth, stand-
ing near the Jordan River with Naomi, had to make an ab-
solute choice. There could be not "in between" ground. There
was to be no room for turning back.
A choice may be influenced in unexpected ways. Parents,
when they attend worship regularly, when they pray over
meals and with the family at other times, do not know which
will influence a child. Prayer and Bible study are witnesses
given and can bring results for Christ.

Marsh
Max Marsh, born May 12,
1923 to Lessie Green and
Alonzo Marsh, Dothan, AL,
died at his home in
Bradenton, FL, June 9, 2005.
Max was the beloved
husband of Marian; father of
Mary Marsh Lasseter,
Martha J. Nelson and
husband, Bill, James Alan
Marsh and wife, Magdelena;
grandfather of Joanna
Carter-Newton and husband,
Dan, Robert Nelson and wife,
Samantha, Richard Nelson,

Cameron and Braden Marsh,
Amber and Lindsay Pebbles,
Alexandria and Dylan
Engilis, Maribel Newton;
brother of Mavis Skipper and
husband, Huey, brother-in-
law of Myrtle Joy Thompson
and husband, Bill. There are
many more cousins, neph-
ews, nieces and good friends
who will miss him.
He was preceded in death
by a daughter, Meredith, and
a great-granddaughter, Anna
Marie.
Marsh was an honorably
discharged Navy veteran
serving in the Pacific Theater
in WWII. He was a Master
Mason. He had worked as a
tire salesman in Dothan, AL;
iron worker in Denver, CO;
owned and operated a service
station in Paxton, FL; drove
a school bus for Walton
County; served on the Paxton
City Council; volunteered as
an EMT, and created the
Paxton water system. After
his retirement as the Walton
County Civil Defense direc-
tor in 1985, he took up fish-
ing as his full time vocation.
He was an expert freshwater
'",-fisherman'.-He passed 'sone
. ofhis secrets to those luckyd
enough to go fishing with
him.
Marsh was a quiet, well-
liked person of the commu-
nity, along with his wife of 61
years, Marian, who, had a
reputation of getting things
done. Without their com-
bined efforts, northern Wal-
ton County would not have

early on.
Marsh resided with his
wife in Paxton, FL, from 1958
until his retirement. They
moved to a home on the
Choctawhatchee River near
Ponce de Leon, FL. They

family cherished the next six
months and treated the time
as if there would be no tomor-

surrounded by his loving
family.

The Old Man
and the Sea
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC
Sponsored by T.P. Motors

After a few of the usual Sunday evening hymns, the
church's pastor once again slowly stood up, walked over
to the pulpit, and gave a very brief introduction of his
childhood friend.
With that, an elderly man stepped up to the pulpit to
speak, "A father, his son, and a friend of his son were
sailing off the Pacific Coast," he began, "when a fast
approaching storm blocked any attempt to get back to
shore. The waves were so high, that even though the
father was an experienced sailor, he could not keep the
boat upright, and the three were swept into the ocean."
The old man hesitated for a moment, making eye con-
tact with two teenagers who were, for the first time since
the service began, looking somewhat interested in his
story. He continued, "Grabbing a rescue line, the father
had to make the most excruciating decision of his life...
to which boy he would throw the other end of the line.
He only had seconds to make the decision.
The father knew that his son was a Christian, and
he also knew that his son's friend was not. The agony of
his decision could not be matched by the torrent of
waves. As the father yelled out, 'I love you, son!
He threw the line to his son's friend. By the time he
pulled the friend back to the capsized boat, his son had
disappeared beyond the raging swells into the black of
night. His body was never recovered."
By this time, the two teenagers were sitting
straighter in the pew, waiting for the next words to come
out of the old man's mouth. "The father," he continued,
"knew his son would step into eternity with Jesus, and
he could not bear the thought of his son's friend step-
ping into an eternity without Jesus. Therefore, he sac-
rificed his son. How great is the love of God that He
should do the same for us." With that, the old man
turned and sat back down in his chair as silence filled
the room.
Within minutes after the service ended, the two teen-
agers were at the.old man's side. "That was a nice story,"
politely started one of the boys,"'but I don't think it was
very realistic for a father to give up his son's life in hopes
that the other boy would become a Christian."
"Well, you've got a point there," the old man replied,
glancing down at his worn Bible. A big smile broadened
his narrow face, and he once again looked up at the boys
and said, "It sure isn't very realistic, is it? But I'm stand-
ing here today to tell you that THAT story gives me a
glimpse of what it must have been like for God to give
up His Son for me."
"You see... I was the son's friend."

:. O th Rla d 'Providenciales


IF THEY DON'T HAVE a home on the island, many celebrities and wealthy vacationers
simply dock their yachts in one of the many marinas.


ISLANDS


onmmend trying, Once again,

in Grace ..,,, where the
resorts are located, Blue
I 11i:it It:lit.i F; E.-tuarantand
the Tiki Hut Restaurant, are
two .t:]:-,'- that serve the
freshest island foods, the
most authentic Italian
dishes, and the coolest and
sometimes strangest drink
menues.
Both overlook the water,
both are drenched in palm
trees, hibiscus and lily flow-
ers and both are considered
the "must stop" places while
on your stay.
One restaurant, that is not
in the traditional tourists
areas, was a quaint little
Mexican restaurant called
Hey Jose. It has thejpst fried

conch fritters and the most
delicious crab chimichanga
on the island. Actually, I
think it might be the only
place in the world that serves
that particular dish.
After you have had your
fill and a good night's rest,
then it is up and out the door.
Despite the fact that the is-
land has limited activities,
there is one place that must
nbe missed. The Turks and
Caicos Islands Museum.
The facility has displays on
the history of the islands that.
include pirate ships, reef:
shipwrecks, historical land-
marks, the message in a
bottle project, royal events,
the Sisal Industry, island
slavery and the salt refiner-
ies and industry.

Over 5,000 images, pic-
tures, charts and artifacts

in, the crystal blue water of the pool is overshadowed in the
background by the azure blue of the Sapadillo Bay.


are housed in the museum
and all items help trace the
past and formation of civili-
zation on the islands.
For more than rest and
relaxation, try the water
sports. The Turks and Caicos
Islands have been called the
best scuba-diving and snor-
keling destinations in the
world.
The clear water is amaz-
ing, and some of the most
beautiful and undisturbed
marine life on the planet can
be found swimming along
the banks of limestone and
around the coral reefs. From
cave-diving and coral scuba-
diving, to boating and deep
sea fishing, it is said that
more people can be found out
in the water than can be
found on the roads.
Kayaks, para-sailing,
scuba-diving, snorkeling,
boating, deep sea fishing,
hand-gliding, banana boat
riding, jet skiing, whale
watching and any other type
of water sport imaginable,
can be found :on the island.
An even more unusual water
event is the mating of the
glow worms that brings hun-
dreds of people into the Sa-
padillo Bay three nights af-
ter the full moon for an 8:15
mating ritual dance.
It is an amazing event to
watch as millions of males
float to the surface of the
water with their tails glow-
ing, find a females egg sack,
break the embryo, fertilizes
the eggs, glows for about five
minutes and then he dies.
Not surprisingly, women
seemed to enjoy the event
more than the men.
There are numerous gift
shops and souvenir stands
scattered throughout the is-
lands. Make a point to stop
by at the various roadside
artists areas where native
artisans have their works on
display.
If' you can haggle, then
bring out your big guns be-
cause the first price given is
outrageous. They will come
down on their prices, but
remember, this is their work
and, for many, their only
source of income.
While cruising the islands,
there are no red lights, just
round-abouts. These little
inventive traffic solutions
are great since you drive on
the opposite side of the road.


Traffic is not a problem on
the little island, but there are
those occasional accidents
that tourists cause, just like
they do here.
So, the next time you are
planning a vacation get-


away, without the hustle
and bustle of the big cities,
the long lines at the hot
family tourists areas and
theme parks, then the Turks
and Caicos Islands might
just be the right vacation


destination for you.

other pictures of the islands,

and hotel/condo/home ac-
commodations, log onto
www.turksandcaicos.com.


THE WATER SURROUNDING the islands is pristine blue with various shades of green.
Here the tide is going out of the Bay, but a 13-15foot path has been dredged out for house and
fishing boats.


,TH E- : LLA




GRACE BAY



THE VILLAGE AT GRACE Bay is one of many resorts and shopping areas that cater to
the 1,500 or more tourists that come to the islands on a weekly bases. Restaurants, condos,
shops and galleries cater to every tourists shopping needs.


PALM TREES GENTLY sway and the water calmly rolls in as rain showers can be seen
miles away. The Turks and Caicos Islands do not offer much in the means of entertainment,
but the views and the landscape, make up for it all.


NUMEROUS COLORS OF BOUGAINVILLEA line the drives, streets, beaches and rock(
throughout the islands. Though the are non-fragrant, but the colors are breathtaking.

Myers wins in Detroit


By PATRICK CASEY
Carol Ann Myers won first
place in the 165-pound open
class power lifting meet held

Detroit on June 4. Myers to-
taled 1,207 pounds for the

a 275-pound bench, ,and a
418-pound dead-lift.
Myers, who weighed in at
1-58 pounds;, lifted -on 'the,
team of Hardcore Barbell out
of Baton Rouge. Myers, along
with team captain Gary


Frank, a former NFL player,
were two of the three mem-
bers on the team that placed

menis super heavyweight di-
vision with a total of 2,633
pounds and also claimed the
title of Best Lifter at the com-
petition, despite lifting with

continue training this' faltfor
the Southern States Meet in
Jacksonville that will be held
in early December.


By PATRICK CASEY
The history of baseball in
the Northwest Florida region
of the state is brighter than
its sister sport, softball.
Teams from the Pensacola to
Monticello region have cap-
tured 34 state championships
according to the archives of
the Florida High School Ath-
letic Association.
Baseball has crowned a
state champion every year
since 1922 with Monticello
claiming our region's first
title in the sport with a 4-1
win over Mulberry in 1933.
Of the 240 state champion-
ships handed out in the his-
tory of baseball at the high
school level, 34 titles have
been claimed by schools be-
tween Pensacola and
Monticello, or about 14% of
the championships.
Tallahassee Leon claimed
three titles from our region
with championships in 1940,
1944, and 1951. 1949 became
the first year in which two
schools were awarded state
championships as the state
was split into two classes. In
1964, the state was split into
three separate classes of com-
petition. In 1971, the FHSAA
went to four classifications of
baseball play. In 1994, the
state went to five classifica-
tions, and, in 1996, to six clas-
sifications of schools that play
for a baseball title.
Pensacola Tate became the
region's most successful pro-
gram in 2005 as the Aggies
captured their seventh base-
ball championship by win-
ning the Class 4A crown.
Tate won championships in
1962,1968,1976,1984,1986,
and 1998. On average,
Pensacola Tate brings home
a baseball state title about

every six years, since 1962.
Pensacola Escambia can
lay claim to five baseball
state championships while
Tallahassee Leon has won
four titles in their program's
history. Tate, Escambia,
Leon, and Florida High are
the only four schools from the
Pensacola to Monticello re-
gion of the state to lay claim
to more than two baseball
championships.
Walton, Okaloosa, and
Holmes counties have never
had a school capture a base-
ball title. Walton and
Okaloosa schools have never
had a team play for a base-
ball championship at the high
school level while Holmes
County has had just one. The
Holmes County Bluedevils
lost the 1966 championship
game to Avon Park 7-0.
Milton and Pensacola
High have seen the most frus-
tration in high school base-
ball championship games
from our region as both
schools are 0-3 in the title
bout.
Reaching the playoffs has
been difficult for area schools.
Walton has appeared in the
baseball playoffs nine times,
but has a 2-9 record. Walton
hasn't won a baseball playoff
game since 1965. Paxton is
the only other school with a
win in the playoffs as the
Bobcats are 1-2 in two ap-
pearances. Freeport and
South Walton have never won
a baseball playoff game and
nearby rival Ponce de Leon is
0-4 in four appearances.

Sports news in review


By CHUCK HINSON
Wuerffel receives honor:
Former Heisman quarter-
back and ex-pro football star,
now turned community
leader, Danny Wuerffel, was
on hand Friday at the Emer-
ald Coast Conference center
to see his drawing that artist
Sandy Proctor had designed.
The design will be used to
create the Danny Wuerffel
Trophy that will be pre-
sented to one player each
February after the regular
season in ends in November
in the sport of college foot-
ball.
The award will be given to
the Division I All Sports
Player. The trophy will honor
various attributes in each
player including sportsman-
ship and ,.'i, ii,.ri t service.
Marlins miss deadline:
The Florida Marlins and
south Florida lawmakers
were unable to meet
baseball's Thursday dead-
line for an outline for a new
stadium to be built in down-
town Miami. The team, city
and Miami-Dade County
were informed by a letter
sent last month from Major
League Basbeall chief opera-
tor Bob DuPuy, who said that
the issue was not a now-or-
never ultimatum, just a
strong reminder that offi-
cials want the issue resolved
in a shorter matter of time.
The plans are to build a
38,000-seat, retractable roof
ballpark that will have an
estimated price tag between
$420 million and $435 mil-
lion. The Marlins camp and
city want the facility to be
built adjacent to the Orange
Bowl and would like to move
in by 2008.
Officials in Tallahassee
have turned down four fund-
ing request by the city and
team. The city of Miami is
still working on a plan and
had pledged at least $166
million towards the project.
Dolphins hire Mueller:
The Miami Dolphins hired
former New Orleans general-
manager Randy Mueller on


June 6 as their GM to help
first-year coach Nick Saban
rebuild the franchise that fell
to an embarrassing 4-12 last
season. Mueller replaces
Rick Spielman, who left the
Dolphins the first part of the
month after five seasons in
Miami.
He has served as GM for
the New Orleans Saints, an
ESPN sports analyst and
was a long-time friend of
Nick Saban, who left LSU to
take over the position.
Mueller also spent 17 years
with the Seattle Seahawks
before joining the Saints.
Edwards wins Pocono
500: He credited his win to
playing video racing games,
but no matter how he did it,
Carl Edwards led 45 of the
200 laps to win the Pocono
500 in Long Pond, PA, on
Sunday and take home his
second Nextel Cup victory of
the season.
The Missiouri driver, who
celebrated his first victory
three months ago in Atlanta,
did a back flip from the win-
dow of his car. The win
pushed Edwards from ninth
to fifth place in the Nextel
Cup standings.
Top ten finishers for the
Pocono 500 included:
1) Carl Edwards Ford
2) Brian Vickers Chevy
3) Joe Nemecheck Chevy
4) Kyle Busch Chevy
5) Michael Waltrip Chevy
6) Jimmie Johnson Chevy
7) Mark Martin Ford
8) Kevin Harvick Chevy
9) Jeff Gordon Chevy
10) Jamie McMurray Dodge
Raikkonen wins Cana-
dian GP: Kimi Raikkonen
and Juan Pablo Montoya
were both heading to the
winner's circle in the Cana-
dian Grand Prix on Sunday,
but a tactical error from the
Montayo crew led to the
racer and team being dis-
qualified. This put
Raikkonen in the winner's
seat after the Montayo had to
stop, due to sufferingsudden
mechanical problems.

5 Sports Facts
1. NFL officials used to blow horns to indicate penal-

introduced.
2. The Michigan softball team claimed the Big Ten's
first softball championship with their win over UCLA in
the 2005 championship game.

4. Eddie Mathews is the only person to play for the

With boating season here
and the summer tourists and
locals beginning to hit the
numerous lakes, ponds, bays,
rivers and the Gulf of Mexico.
the Florida Wildlife Commis-
sion is going to be making a
greater presence on the roads
and on the water. In addition
to stopping violators, they
will be making sure that all
follow the rules.
Many think that the FWC
is just a part of the law en-
forcement that helps protect
the wildlife in nature, but in
the state of Florida, the Flor-
ida Wildlife Commission does
much more than that. The
FWC also patrols the water
and enforces state boating
laws.
The commission has offi-
cers that patrol for fishing,
violations on the water and
look for boat rule violators.
These officers have one job,
to keep living creatures, hu-
mans and animals, safe.
One ofthe biggest problems
that seem to be plaguing the
FWC, is the remains of Hur-
ricane Ivan. The once clearly
marked signs that appeared
in the water prior to the hur-


ricane that identifies, "idle
speed" and "no wake zone,"
are still under water or have
been blown into the woods.
This problem causes many
boaters to break the Florida
laws of boating without
knowing that they have done
so. Officers say that many of
the tourists and boaters from
outside of Florida, don't know
where these zones are, but
even locals, who have known
these waters, also do the
same thing.
Violation tickets are given
for drinking and operating a
boat, speeding, fishing viola-
tions, proper boat registra-
tion, life preservers, over-
crowded vessels, underage
boat operators and safety
regulation violations.
Officers say that the big-
gest problems they encoun-
ter, beyond the occasional
tickets and BWI (boating
while intoxicated) is boater
education. That is why locals
are held more accountable
than tourists when it comes
to violations, since they have
numerous opportunities to
learn more about boat safety

Tropical Storm


Arlene damages


beaches, soaks


north Walton


By RONKELLEY
Tropical Storm Arlene
blew into the Panhandle and
brought gusty winds and
plenty of rain, but little dam-
age to homes or property.
The storm's worst effects
occurred along the 26 miles
of shoreline, causing serious
erosion and resulting in the
closing of the Miramar Beach
Access, which had recently
been renovated and a new
parking lot installed. That
access has been closed until
further notice.
Some of the walkovers
were also damaged. In places
where serious beach erosion
already existed, Arlene took
a bad situation and made it
worse, leaving some areas in
critical condition.
Sustained winds of 70
m.p.h. were reported early
Saturday morning while
Arlene was still in the Gulf.
A voluntary evacuation no-
tice had been issued, but by
noon, onshore winds had
risen above 40 m.p.h., which
is the cut-off point for the
Clyde Wells Bridge on U.S.
331, the only evacuation
route for south Walton
County beaches.
At 1 p.m., the bridge was
closed for several hours un-
til the winds decreased to a


safe level. The bridge was re-
opened around 4:30 p.m. and
the Red Cross shelter that
had opened at Freeport High
School was closed.
The beaches remained of-
ficially closed until Monday
morning and double red flags
were posted (where flagpoles
still existed) throughout all
26 miles of Walton shoreline,
warning swimmers to stay
out of the water because of
storm debris.
In north Walton, there was
plenty of rain and wind
gusts, but no reports of seri-
ous structural damage to
homes or outbuildings.
According to Walton
County Public Information
Coordinator Sara Comander,
Brown Road was closed for a
time due to flooding and
there were a few scattered
reports of power outages.
Although Tropical Storm
Arlene did not cause signifi-
cant damage to northwest
Florida, residents and offi-
cials alike remain vigilant
after the devastating 2004
hurricane season that
spawned four major hurri-
canes, killed hundreds and
caused billions of dollars of
damage to many of Florida's
coastal communities, includ-
ing Walton County.


By DOTTY NIST
Issues related to the
planned Walton County/
Destin large-scale beach res-
toration project are now un-
der review by a second judge.
The project, the first of its
kind for Walton County and
Destin, had been planned to
begin in fall 2004. Prepara-
tions, including the securing
of funding, feasibility studies,
sand source investigation,
and permitting, have been
ongoing since 1998.
On June 7, Administrative
Law Judge J. Larry Johnston
heard approximately five
hours of testimony from par-
ties involved in a challenge
to the state permit for the
planned six-mile-long
project. The proceeding, an
official administrative hear-
ing of citizen's objections to
the state permit for the
project, took place at Walton
SCounty's courthouse annex
in Santa Rosa Beach.
Officials from Walton
County, Destin, the state De-
partment of Environmental
Protection (DEP) and other
witnesses appeared to defend
the proposed renourishment.
Objecting to the beach res-
toration plans are six Walton

MIRAMAR BEACH ACCESS is one of several public accesses in the critically eroded sec-
tion of beachfront that Walton County had intended to renourish in fall 2004 in a large-scale

tion.
Over 50 Destin residents,
members of the nonprofit or-
ganization Save Our
Beaches, Inc., are part of the
administrative challenge as
well.
Following a constitutional
challenge of state statutes
relating to beach
renourishment filed by the
same parties, Judge
Jonathan Sjostrom of the
Second Judicial Circuit is re-
viewing testimony from that
lawsuit, which was filed in
Tallahassee. A decision on
motions for summary judg-
ment filed by both sides in
that lawsuit is expected at
any time.
Central to that challenge is
the concept of "accretion
rights." The homeowners
have contended that the
beach renourishment project
would cause them to be un-
constitutionally deprived of
these rights on the
beachfront portion of their
property.
Where deeds on beachfront
property show private own-
ership extending to gulf's
mean high water line and
when natural beach accre-
tion occurs, the accreted por-
tion becomes part of the
property. Florida claims sub-
merged lands off the coast as
state sovereign property.


Prior to state sovereign
lands being reclaimed in a
beach nourishment project, it
is a state requirement for an
erosion control Jine (ECL) to
be set in the area of the av-
erage mean high water eleva-
tion. The purpose of the ECL
is to separate private prop-
erty from the formerly sub-
merged lands to be reclaimed
through renourishment. So,
in effect, the setting of the
ECL would negate the exten-
sion of beachfront property
gulfward due to natural ac-
cretion.
At issue is whether this
would constitute a "taking"
that would require eminent
domain proceedings by the
state in order for the
renourishment to take place.
Whether any natural accre-
tion could be expected to take
place in the project area, at
least in the short term, is at
best uncertain. This is a
state-designated critically
eroded area that experts
warn is suffering from a sand
deficit, not only onshore but
offshore, a situation that can
severely inhibit natural re-
covery.
The wave impact of last
week's Tropical Storm Arlene
had a negative impact on

Arlene

uncovers

septic

tanks on

the beach

By TIANA LARSEN
Four homes in the Gulf
Trace subdivision in south
Walton were condemned
Monday morning by the Wal-
ton County Building Depart-
ment due to non-functional
sewage systems.
Out-of-town guests staying
at the homes were moved out
on Sunday and water to the
homes was turned off, accord-
ing to Crystal Steele, Walton
County health officer and
acting administrator. (Wal-
ton County had been without
an administrator since Dr.
Susan Turner resigned from
the health department sev-
eral months ago. At their
June 14 meeting, the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners appointed
James Jones to serve as the
administrator of the health
department.
High water from Tropical
Storm Arlene uncovered the
septic tanks and drain fields
of the homes, which are lo-
categ on the beach and were
previously uncovered and
damaged during Hurricane
Ivan.
After Ivan scoured the
beach and revealed the sep-
tic tanks, the homeowners
were granted repair permits
from the county health de-
partment because public:
sewer service is not available
in the subdivision.
At that time, Regional;
Utilities, the sewer provider:
for the area, said the prop-
erty owners in Gulf Trace
were polled by letter months
prior to Ivan, and the over-
whelming majority of owners
said they did not want sewer
service.
Steele said the property
owners will have to apply
again for sewer repairs, and
they may be denied because
standards have changed
since the septic tanks were
originally installed.
Some of the issues are too
much fill on top of the drain
fields, stairs installed in the
drain fields, and more people

Tourism and community



mobilizing to defend beaches


By DOTTYNIST
"(A)ny negative effects of
the offshore drilling could im-
pact the quality of its beaches
and waters and jeopardize
the tourism industry and
harmWalton County and the
state of Florida," reads, in
part, a resolution by the
South Walton Tourist Devel-
opment Council (TDC.)
Opposing expected moves
in the United States Senate
that would, in effect, weaken
or nullify Florida's control
over its offshore area with
regard to oil drilling, the TDC
resolution was approved on


June 9.
Mary Landrieu, who repre-
sents Louisiana in the U.S.
Senate, is expected to pro-
pose an amendment to the
Outer Continental Shelf
Lands Act that would result
in a large area now consid-
ered to be offshore from
Florida being considered off-
shore from Louisiana, for
purposes of oil leases and
drilling.

The TDC resolution urges
Florida's Congressional del-
egation to oppose Landrieu's
amendment "and any other


similar amendments."
The resolution warns of the
potential for pollution in con-
nection with drilling in the
gulf and possible impacts on
commercial and sport fish-
ing. It also highlights the
importance of preserving the
beauty of the area's white
sands and "emerald green
waters" not only in the inter-
est of the environment but to
sustain tourism, Walton
County's largest industry.

TDC Executive Director
Kriss Titus called for local
bed tax collectors and tour-


ism employees to contact
their Congressional repre-
sentatives to oppose change
in the situation with regard
to oil leases and offshore
drilling.

On June 7, The Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners also voted to
direct Walton County Legal
Services to prepare a resolu-
tion opposing the move
change the status of the off-
shore areas. The commission-
ers are expected to take up
the resolution in public ses-
sion in the near future.


.. "--.



UPCOMING US. SENATE proposals could weaken the
State of Florida's ability to protect its beaches from the im-
pacts of offshore oil drilling. The South Walton Tourist De-
velopment Council has gone on record with strong opposi-
tion to the proposals.

An accident involving a live
electrical power line has left
three construction workers
critically injured. The acci-
dent occurred on the after-
noon of June 9 in Miramar
Beach.
According to South Walton
Fire District Chief Corey
Harned, three construction
workers were apparently
working on a building at the
corner of U.S. Highway 98
and Holiday Road. The men
were standing on a metal
scaffold.
For reasons yet unknown,
the scaffold rolled several


feet across a parking lot,
making contact with a live,
115,000-volt power line.
The three men received
what was described as a
"massive" jolt of electricity.
Co-workers pulled the vic-
tims from the scaffolding,
and the injured men received
first aid from two passers-by,
one a retired firefighter.
Two of the men were trans-
ported by helicopter to the
University of South Alabama
Hospital. The third was air-
lifted to Sacred Heart Hospi-
tal in Pensacola.
Both hospitals have de-
clined to release further in-

formation on the extent of
the injuries, or the names
and status of the three men.
One of the persons assisting
at the scene said the men's
clothes were "smoldering."
The accident also resulted
in a two-hour power failure
for some 18,000 Gulf Power
and Chelco customers, ex-
tending as far east as U.S.
Highway 331.
Chief Harned said that the
power line that injured the
men was a main feeder line
to all of south Walton County.
Lack of working traffic sig-
nals led to stalled traffic all
over the south part of the


county. Power was report-
edly fully restored by 6:20
p.m. on the evening of the
accident.
Gulf Power spokesman
John Hutchinson said that
the power line was properly
in place, and that the scaf-
folding "took off on its own."
"We have very few contact
cases like this," said
Hutchinson. "When they do
happen, it's a real tragedy."
The accident is currently
under investigation by sev-
eral agencies, including the
Occupational Safety and
Health Administration.

Water Saving


Tips


Cut back on rinsing if your dishwasher is new.

Newer models clean more throughly

than older ones.



I Bathe your young children together.


Insulate hot water pipes so you don't have to run

S as much water to get hot water to the faucet.


Cook food in as little water as possible.
This will also retain more nutrients.


Select the proper size pans for cooking.

Large pans require more cooking water
than may be necessary.


When you give your pet fresh water, don't
throw the old water down the drain.

Use it to water your trees or shrubs.


If you accidentally drop ice cubes when filling
your glass from the freezer, don't throw them in

the sink, drop them in a house plant instead.

FDOT advises motorists of possible

Escambia Bay bridge detours


*.I
a


Hurricane season is upon
seriesus and the first named
tropical storm, Arlehe, is
poised to enter the Gulf of
Mexico possibly threatening
northwest Florida. With that
in mind the Florida Depart-
ment of. Transportation
(FDOT) is reminding resi-
dents in Escambia and Santa
Rosa Counties as well as
motorist traveling east on Ir
10 that the Escambia Bay
Bridge is down to one lane
across the bay.
Should an evacuation be
ordered residents are advised
to obey the order and leave
early using alternate routes
such as U.S. 29 north, and
Davis and Scenic Highway to
U.S. 90 east. FDOT officials


say the bridge will remain
open as long as possible; how-
ever; when it becomes a
threat to human safety the
structure will be closed.
If both bridges are is closed
east and westbound I-10
traffic will be detoured off I-
10 at exit 5 (Nine Mile Road)
and Exit 22 (Avalon Boule-
vard) to U.S. 90. Local traf-
fic will use Davis and Scenic
Highway north to U.S. 90.
If additional eastbound
laneage is necessary for
evacuation or the eastbound
bridge is closed, the contrac-
tor will place one lane of traf-
fic in both directions on the
westbound bridge.
Both structures were sig-


nificantly damaged by Hur-
ricane Ivan last year with
sections of the eastbound
bridge replaced with acrow
bridge (metal grate decking).
"During this hurricane sea-
son,' all residents of
Escambia and Santa Rosa
counties need to be aware
that the bridges over the bay
are structurally deficient and
should familiarize them-
selves with alternate routes
of travel," said FDOT District
Secretary Edward Prescott.
Construction is underway
for replacement bridges. The
eastbound bridge is sched-
uled for completion in 2006
followed by the westbound in
2007.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

Board of County Commissioners of Walton County, Florida
to Consider Ordinance for the Establishment of the
NatureWalk Community Development District
DATE: June 28, 2005
TIME: 8:00 a.m. (CST)
LOCATION: South Walton Courthouse Annex
31 Coastal Centre Blvd.
.. Santa'Rosa'Beach,' L 32459

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 Company, LLC ("Petitioner"), to establish a 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
the Clerk of Court, Walton County
Courthouse, 571 U.S. Highway 90, 3o5
DeFuniak Springs, Florida, between the
hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. except
on weekends and holidays.
The information presented at this hear-
ing will be used to afford the Petitioner, h i
landowners, any affected units of local d
government, and the general public, a fair
and adequate opportunity to appear and WterC:lr
present oral and written comments J
regarding the establishment of the
District. If adopted, the ordinance will .le ,
establish the NatureWalk Community
Development District, name its initial ISe
Board of Supervisors and designate the
land to be serviced by the District. Gulf of M texiocd
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 ird.lidujals 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.

County moves to repair


Arlene damage


THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 16, 2005


1~8b~r~~a ~ 4


BY TIANA LARSEN
The Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) moved quickly, autho-
rizing four emergency mea-
sures requested by the Tour-
ist Development Council
(TDC) but the main issue of
how to restore eroded beaches
remains a difficult problem to
solve..
"Arlene made a terrible
situation worse," said Brad
Pickel, beach management
director for the TDC, as he up-
date the BCC on the storm at
their June 14 meeting.
The TDC got everything
they asked for, authorization
for an emergency bid for de-
bris removal, two change or-
ders to currently open con-
tracts to rebuild the 15 TDC
walkovers damaged by
SArlene and the Miramar re-
gional access parking lot and
restrooms, and a contract
with the South Walton Turtle
Watch that is needed in order
for emergency repairs to take
place during sea turtle nest-


ing season.
The expected cost of the
repairs and debris removal is
about $3 million, which the
TDC will pay for with contin-
gency funds raised through
the "bed tax."
The turtle watch will be
paid $50,000 for the season,
which began May 1 and runs
through the end of October.
The county is waiting for
an emergency order from the
state to start the rebuilding
process, but Pickel is hopeful
the TDC will not be ham-
pered in their efforts.
Concerning the rebuilding
of private walkovers, the
state will make a decision
after assessing the level of
damages in the five-county
area impacted by Arlene.
Private walkovers could be
handled on a case by case
basis, but the Endangered
Species Act rules what can be
done, Pickel explained.
The renourishment of the
severely eroded west end is
awaiting a judge's decision


(see related story, "Walton/
Destin shoreline restoration
tied up in court ) and even if
the judge's ruling is favorable
to the county, it will be fall be-
fore the project gets under-
way.
So far as the rest of the
county beaches are con-
cerned, the problem is find-
ing beach quality sand and
getting it onto the beaches.
Pickel said the scraping
done over the winter "abso-
lutely did not lead to the ero-
sion," but also said any fur-
ther scraping has a very low
probability of being approved
by the state, although it could
be requested.
The TDC will spend up to
$1 million this summer look-
ing for a sand source that
could possibly be dredged
onto the beaches.
District 4 Commissioner
Ro Cuchens suggested a pro-
cess be undertaken to gather
public input on dredging, call-
ing the beaches very vulner-
able right now.

TWO TO THREE FEET OF SAND were lost in the Seagrove area to Arlene, exposing the
so-called "peat" that underlies much of Walton County's beaches. The "peat" is the remains
of the ancient forest that grew during the last ice age, when the sea was much further
away.

project area, to say the least.
Complaints at the June 7
state administrative hearing
Included the accretion rights
argument. Witnesses also
testified that they had ac-
quired their property with
the understanding that it
"touched" the edge of the
Gulf, a situation they stated
Should be changed if the
beach renourishment project
were to take place.
Proponents of the project
countered that, with the
Property deeds extending to
the mean high water line, the
lots already do not "touch"
the Gulf except at high tide.
Objections about turbidity in
the Gulf resulting from the
renourishment were raised
as well.
"I think our enjoyment of
the water will be affected,"
testified Linda Cherry of
Save Our Beaches.
"We expect very little dis-
Sturbance of the water qual-
ity, and it would be tempo-
rary," predicted Tom
Campbell, a coastal engineer
testifying on behalf of Walton
County and Destin.
The sand source for the
project is to be Destin's East
Pass ebb shoal. DEP aquatic
ecologist Marty Seeling char-
acterized the sand source as
one of the best DEP had seen
in the state. "It will settle out
very quickly," he testified.
The property owners also
raised the question of owner-
ship of the project area. While
Walton County and Destin
own portions of the shoreline,
much more of it is under pri-


FROM FRONT


vate ownership. Representa-
tives of the local govern-
ments pointed out that the
public uses the beach and
that the governments main-
tain access points and clean
the shoreline.

At issue is whether the gov-
ernments can claim "suffi-
cient upland interest" (to
quote state statute) in the
project area to be authorized
to conduct the project. DEP
representatives testified that
no demonstration of such in-
terest is required in the case
of government entities since
beach restoration is under-
stood to be in the public in-
terest.
According to Phil Flood of
the DEP Bureau of Beaches
and Coastal Systems, about
175 miles of Florida
beachfront has been restored
in approximately 45 projects
similar to the one planned by
Walton County and Destin,
mostly at the initiative of lo-
cal governments.
Decisions on the lawsuit
and administrative challenge
associated with the Walton
County/Destin beach restora-
tion project are expected to
have statewide and possibly
even national implications.
Judge Johnston indicated
that he would render a deci-
sion on the administrative
hearing within 30 days of the
filing of a transcript, which
was tentatively promised by
the third week in June. A de-
cision on the constitutional
challenge is expected to be
forthcoming.

The first recommendation

requirements for septic sys-

Steele will probably recom-
mend that new septic sys-
tems be engineered to pro-
vide more protection to the
community, she said.
One of the requirements is


a setback of 75 feet from the
mean high water, and that
will be surveyed. If the cur-
rent requirements cannot be
met, Steele will recommend
the owners apply to the state
for a variance.
There will be a lot of work
to actually obtain permits,
Steele thought.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 16, 2005


- -m



/;


With summertime
heat comes a new
summer television
line-up. Once again,
reality t.v. shows are
planned to shock,
scare and even bring
down the I.Q. of the
viewer, all in the
name of entertain-
ment.

Just when you thought
that television had run out of
idiotic programming and
reality t.v. shows, they
proved us wrong again. This
summer's line-up has once
again put boob back in the
word of boob tube.
A string of shows will be
clogging the airwaves on the
major stations such as CBS,
FOX, NBC and ABC. Pro-
grams that deal with college
scholarship contestants to
learning how to deal with an
irate chef, will be seen heat-
ing up evening television.
For the longest time, the
FOX network has been on the
edge of reality and just plain
ridiculous. But now, all the
major channels are getting
into the action and, surpris-
ingly there seems to be no
end to the madness.
Not being a fan of reality
television, there are several
shows that seem to have no
purpose and even more that
should never have been of-
fered a pilot. Those shows
will spotlight in this week's
article.
Starting off with the first
station to offer reality pro-
gramming, besides Real
World on MTV, is the FOX
Network.
This summer's sleepers
include Hell's Kitchen. A 30 -
minute show that deals with
the culinary students trying
to get the attention and pos-
sible job offer by British
master chef Gordon Ramsey.
Between his hissy-fits,
temper tantrums and "you'll
never be as good a. chef as
me," comments to the stu-
dents, he shows just how dis-
turbing life can be in a res-
taurant kitchen. He throws
food on the contestants,
curses them and even goes as
far as dumping their culinary
masterpieces all over the
floor if they do not meet his
standards.
First of all, who is Gordon
Ramsey; and second, why
did he cross the pond to come
to America? Don't we have
enough attitude without
another loud, annoying
Emiril Lagasi-style noodle
cutter?
To everyone's shock, the
three "big boys," ABC, NBC
and CBS, are presenting
their own reality television
line-ups that seem to rival
the low-brow programming
of FOX.
NBC is hoping to boost rat-
ings by putting on the Hilton
parents. Since FOX had
Paris, why can't NBC have
mommy and daddy?
The hotel moguls must be
hurting for cash.
The show centers around
the Hilton family fortune
and has 14 contestants that
are trying to live in the lap of


Art Clips


L"', n -


Hilton luxury. The point of
the show is to see how back-
stabbing, manipulative and
low these contestants will go
to win the unknown prize
and a chance to be a hotel
desk clerk.
I know. Why even turn on
the television?
On to CBS and their line-
up for the summer months:
Of course, the network is
once again bringing new epi-
sodes of The Amazing Race
and Survivor. It is still real-
ity t.v., but with the thrill of
the contestants possibly get-
ting snapped by a gator.
Now that's reality televi-
sion at its finest.
Get ready for another "hire
and fire" show as CBS has
released two new programs,
one for a top designer and
the other features contest-
ants trying to get fired from
their job.
On the first show The Cut,
designer Tommy Hilfiger
takes a group of want-to-be
designers and cuts them one
by one until he has the per-
fect protege. The contestants
design, create, sew and
model their designs, hoping
to be picked up by the fashion
guru.
The second reality show
that seems more like a com-
edy, is Please, Fire Me. This
show takes a rather comical
look at three employees who
are hired by the same com-
pany at the same time. The
contestants, under televi-
sion censors, try everything
possible to get fired before 3
p.m. the same day they were
hired. It premeired on June 7
and people said, of reality
television programming on
this summer, this one has
the most potential just be-
cause it is not serious and
there are no employees or
contestants trying to kiss
and crawl their way up the
corporate ladder.
Hint, hint, hint, Donald
Trump and zombies.
On to ABC and their mess-
ups, I mean line-ups... we'll
start off with a new agoniz-
ing series of Super Nanny.
Here the bottle-carrying,
time-out teaching crusader
is once again helping fami-
lies with their troubled
youths and those uncontrol-
lable children. The nanny
tries to talk to the children in
a reasonable tone, and tries
to enforce the house rule, but
with no luck.
I have sat and watched this
show once, I lost the remote
and I don't manually flip,
and imagined just how long
my mother would have al-
lowed me to throw temper
tantrums, toss my toys and
food all over the room, slap
her or even talk back. I guar-
antee that is tyou saw me on
the street today, I would still
have a red handprint across
my cheekfrom 30 years ago.
Here's a clue, Super
Nanny, spare the rod and
' spoil the child. It was writ-
ten in the Bible for a reason.
Another show that ABC is
premiering this summer is
Dancing With the Stars, a
campy-type of show that
brings back several has-
been actors and performers,
such as John O'Hurley, Kelly
Monaco, Rachel Hunter,
Evander Holyfield and Joey
McIntyre.

ters around these "B" celebri-
ties as they learn different
dance steps and then are
paired up with professional
dancers. They compete live
each week and the judges
and the viewing audience
vote to see who is the best for
that week.
Is this show for real, or has
ABCjust entirely given up on
television shows since their
blockbuster, Desperate
Housewives became the No. 1
show across the board?,
ABC has kept reality tele-
vision on a sensible level as
Extreme Makeover: Home
Edition returns for another
season in the fall and the new
summer series The Scholar,
debuted this past week to
raving reviews.
Extreme Makeover: Home
Edition, walked away with
several Emmy nominations
and awards at this year's
ceremony, and is still one of
my favorite television pro-
grams. The new show The
Scholar, gives several high


school graduates the chance to
win a full-paid scholarship to
a university of their choice.
On their program, the stu-
dents are asked difficult,
educated questions, with
thought-provoking answers
that must be given in a cer-
tain time period. Both shows
are on the ABC line-up and
both seem to be, as reported
by numerous polls and sur-
veys, to be the only tolerable
reality shows to watch out of
all four major networks real-
ity programming.
This summer, reality tele-
vision is once again trying to
capture and keep audiences
glued to their sets, watching
all the advertisements of
their show's sponsors and
playing every card in the
deck to appeal to as many
viewers as possible. Take
Walter Cronkite's advice,
"why watch the news on tele-
vision, when you can go out
and make your own stories
up?"
Happy watching!

side July Fourth Parade. This year's parade is once again
scheduled for July Fourth beginning at 8 a.m.

AT THE HEIGHT OF
THE STORM, offshore winds
were blowing at high tide,
causing waves to run up
long the beaches. The handi-
cap platform at the bottom of
he One Seagrove access is
shown here. After the water
receded, the platform was in-
act.


PARADISE LOST? Blue
Mountain Beach suffered
some of the most serious beach
erosion. This retaining wall,
a portion of the property's side
yard wall and a chunk of the
back yard fell onto the beach
after waves ate away at the
dune.


Every year, hundreds of Floridians are slammed. Slamming occurs when a company
changes a consumer's local or long distance telephone service without permission. It
may occur as the result of a contest or sweepstakes entry that authorizes change of
service in very small print; it may also occur when telemarketers use deceptive or
confusing language to get consumers to change their service.

In an effort to prevent this, the Public Service Commission (PSC) toughened its slamming
rules in 1998 and began bringing harsher penalties against companies that continue
the practice. While the penalties imposed by the PSC dramatically reduced slamming,
consumers may occasionally find themselves the victim of an unauthorized switch.
Florida's slamming rules'are some of the most stringent in the country, and have served
as a model for a number of other states as they created their own rules.


How To Avoid Being Slammed
* Check your telephone bill monthly. Make
sure your phone company is listed correctly.

* Carefully read the fine print on everything.
This includes any checks, offers for calling
cards, sweepstakes or drawings.

* If you receive a call from a telemarketer
asking you to change your long distance
service, and you are halipy with your current
service, just say that you are not interested
and hang up. Don't verify your name, your
spouse's name, or your address, and never
give out your Social Security number to
telemarketers.

* Sign up for "No Sales Solicitation Calls" with'
the Florida Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services. This way, no one can
call trying to sell you their products, and/or
services. Call 1-800-HELP-FLA (1-800-435-
7362) or visit http://www.800helpfla.com/
nosales.htmi to find out mote. For Spanish
translations call 1-800-352-9832. For no fee
you can also sign up for the "National Do
Not Call Registry" with the Federal Trade
Commission at 1-888-382-1222 or visit
https://www.donotcall.gov.

Call your local telephone company and
request a Preferred Carrier or "PC" Freeze.
This prohibits future changes to your account
without your authorization.


What To Do If You Are Slammed
+ Call your local telephone company. Let them
know you did not request service from your
"new" phone company and would like to be
switched back to your original phone service
provider. Have them remove any switching
fees from your bill.

* Have your telephone company place a PC
Freeze on your account. This will prevent
unauthorized changes from being made to
your phone service.

* Contact the company that slammed you.
Insist on paying only the charges your
original carrier would have imposed. Call
the PSC at 1-800-342-3552 if the carrier will
not adjust your charges.

If you discover your long distance service has
been changed without your consent, call either
your local phone company or your long distance
company to be reconnected to the company of
your choice at no charge. If you are not
satisfied with the company's response, you may
also call the PSC at 1-800-342-3552 or file an
on-line complaint at www.floridapsc.com.

Braulio L. Baez is the Chairman of the Florida
Public Service Commission. The PSC sets the rates
regulated utility companies charge for natural gas,
electric and telephone service within the state. In
36 counties, it sets the price you pay for the water
you drink, if your water company is privately
owned.
