Nacoochee vs Pickett

Judge orders land


sale at original


contract price


By BRUCE COLLIER
In a 13-page order, signed
June 20, Walton County Cir-
cuit Judge William Stone or-
dered specific performance
of a contract for purchase
and sale of 1,402.5 acres of
property owned by Diane
Pickett to Georgia-based
Nacoochee Corporation.
The order was entered
some four months after the
conclusion of a week-long
trial.
The lawsuit arose out of a
contract for sale of land.
When a survey determined
that the property contained
some 50 percent wetlands,
Nacoochee sought to pur-
chase the property, including
the wetlands, at a reduced
price of $1.7 million.
Pickett refused to sell at
this price, and sought to de-
clare the contract cancelled.
The contract called for a
price of $2,600 per acre, for
1,398.28 acres. Following a
survey by Nacoochee, the ac-
tual acreage was found to be
1402.5.
At the core of the dispute
was whether language in the
contract regarding an adjust-
ment of price meant only an
adjustment based on total
number of acres, or whether
the number of wetland acres
could be factored into an ad-
justment.
Judge Stone found that the
testimony of Pickett and the
lawyer who negotiated the
contract was "more credible"
on that issue, and held that
the contract price could only
be adjusted based on total
number of acres.
Thus, the adjusted price,
based on 1402.5 acres at
$2,600 per acre, is
$3,646,500.
Part of Pickett's case rested
on the failure of the buyer to
make earnest money depos-
its as required by the con-
tract.


Judge Stone found that,
while the evidence indicated
that the deposits had not
been made initially, that this
was cured by their subse-
quent tender.
The order gives each side
something, but not every-
thing. Nacoochee sought to
enforce the contract, but at a
reduced price. Pickett sought
to cancel the contract, be-
cause of the disagreement
over the price, and the issue
of earnest money.
As it now stands, Pickett
must sell the property, but
will not have to sell at the
reduced price argued for by
Nacoochee.
Nacoochee will get all the
land, but not for the price it
wanted.
The court reserved juris-
diction over the question of
litigation costs. Judge Stone
asked for further written ar-
gument on the issue of who
is actually the prevailing
party, which will determine
the proper assessment of
costs.
Pensacola attorney Donald
Partington, who represents
Pickett, said that, although
he and his client were "dis-
appointed" that the judge did
not set aside the contract,
they were "pleased that the
other side was not able to
take the property based on
the uplands theory."
Speaking for Nacoochee,
Atlanta attorney Cary Ichter
maintained that the lan-
guage of the contract on wet-
lands and uplands calls for
a reduced price, adding that
"nothing wassaid in the trial
to change the contract."

Both sides have 30 days
from the rendition of the or-
der to appeal. Partington
says that he and Pickett are
"studying the order." Ichter
said that an appeal is a
"strong possibility."


Marse seeks re-election


"Fourteen years ago, I ran
for mayor of Freeport at a
time when it was a job that
you couldn't give away. I
couldn't say no since my dad,
Buster Marse, was the first
mayor of Freeport when it
was incorporated in 1963,"
said Mickey Marse.
"Freeport and Walton
County have changed a lot
since I first got elected. The
city was half the size it is now
and most folks didn't have
water and sewer. The tax
base was tiny and we used to
joke that we didn't have
enough money to buy an ex-
tra shovel, much less to pave
a road or build a park," he
said.
"As mayor since 1991, I am
proud to have played a part
in the progress we all have
made for our town. We have
doubled the size of Freeport
and expanded our tax base.
We built a water and sewer
system to bring vital services


to all our residents. We cre-
ated an industrial park and
an enterprise zone to bring
jobs here. Our Barge Port
Fund will provide money to
build a "waterside park" for
all residents to use. We
strengthened our planning
and zoning process to plan
for future growth. Freeport's
hard work and progress were
recognized by the U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture in
the year 2000, when they se-
lected Freeport out of all the
cities in Florida for their
Small Community Develop-
ment Award," said Marse.
"Progress has been made,
but Freeport will likely
change more in the next ten
years than it has in the last
forty. I want to continue to
stick up for our town and our
people and work with you for
a better future for all of us.
That's why I have decided tb

State Representative Don Brown, other legislators recognized for efforts


STATE REPRESENTATIVE Don Brown was recently rec-
ognized for his voting record on issues included in the Florida
Chamber of Commerce's business agenda.
.' '1


By DOTTYNIST
"When the business com-
munity is strong, families are
strong," said State Represen-
tative Don Brown.
Brown and three other
area legislators recently re-
ceived thanks and recogni-
tion from the Florida Cham-
ber of Commerce for their
support on business-related
issues targeted by the cham-
ber.
Brown was presented with
an honorary certificate for
his voting record. Doug
Wheeler of the Florida
Chamber of Commerce did
the honors at a June 22 leg-
islative briefing breakfast at
the Sandestin Beach Hilton
in conjunction with the Wal-
ton County Chamber of Com-
merce.
Along with Brown, area
legislators Charlie Clary,
David Coley (recently de-
ceased,) and Ray Sansom all
got top marks on their "leg-
islative report card" from the


Florida Chamber in connec-
tion with their work on be-
half of the business commu-
nity. Brown was the only leg-
islator who was able to at-
tend and be recognized in
person.
Brown commented that
tort reform has been his ma-
jor focus in the legislature.
He revealed that frivolous
lawsuits are now costing
each man, woman and child
in the country well over $800
per year.
The legislator, who is in the
insurance business in DeFu-
niak Springs and is a former
Walton County Chamber of
Commerce president, said he,
has worked hard toward
remedying that situation and
will continue the fight.
"Trial lawyers don't like
me, and I don't like them," he
told the gathering.
Wheeler reported that
there was some action dur-
ing the 2005 legislative ses-,:


sion on 15 of 23 issues on the
Florida Chamber's business
agenda.
The business agenda is de-
veloped through member in-
put. The Florida Chamber is
a federation of 116 local
chambers with the strength
of 137,000 employers behind
them, Wheeler noted.
Considered by the Florida
Chamber to be a key victory
of the 2005 session is a con-
stitutional amendment re-
form measure that would re-
quire a 60 percent vote for
approval of all amendments
to the state constitution. The
reform legislation was ap-
proved by the legislature to
go forward for consideration
by the public. It may be in-
cluded on the 2006 ballot.
Among the upcoming busi-
ness-related issues forecast
for the 2006 legislative ses-
,sion are Medicaid reform,
,health care reform, and
.growth management propos-


als.
Goals with Medicaid re-
form and health care reform
initiatives will be increasing
cost effectiveness and provid-
ing more options for employ-
ers and employees.
Among the challenges
posed by growth manage-
ment in Florida is an ex-
pected $35 billion shortfall
with regard to financial re-
sources needed for road, wa-
ter and school infrastructure
over the next ten years.
"You make a difference,"
Wheeler told the local cham-
ber members.
He encouraged them to
continue to make their voices
heard in the legislature
through phone calls, e-mails,
letter, and visits to Tallahas-
see.

Florida Chamber of Com-
merce, its business agenda,

OWC to

participate

in NASA

project
The observatory at the
Okaloosa-Walton College
Niceville campus and science
faculty at the college will par-
ticipate in the Deep Impact
Space Mission/Small Tele-
scope Science Program. The
Deep Impact Space Mission
is NASA's attempt to launch
a probe to intercept a near-
earth-object (NEO), such as
the comet-9P/Tempel 1.
NASA has recruited small
telescope viewers from
around the world to get dif-
ferent perspectives of the
event, which will happen this
summer. The probe has al-
ready been launched, and
will be encountering the
comet in early July.
During the encounter, the
probe will attempt to exca-
vate a crater on the nucleus
of the comet, and NASA has
recruited private observers to
help get image data to deter-
mine the nature of the scat-
tered dust and to corroborate
their measurements. This
would yield data about the
inner structure of a comet
nucleus, which would ad-
vance science, and may help
in future missions should the
human race be threatened --
hence the name, "Deep Im-
pact".
On the days immediately
prior to and after July 4,
OWC will take digital images
of the event through the
college's telescope. The OWC
observatory houses an 18"
automated reflective tele-
scope complete wv.ith a CCD
camera and software to allow
the location and recording of
events in the sky. OWC sci-
ence faculty utilize the obsefr,..', ..
vatory for the college's As-
tronomy classes.

Fire department doing more than 'putting out fires'


By Ron Kelley

Mossy Head Oakwood
Hills Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment handled 11 calls be-
tween June 6 and June 12,
including five medical calls,
four motor vehicle crashes,
one vehicle fire and one citi-
zen assist.
According to department
spokesperson Leah Corsaro,
on June 6, they received a
call regarding a motor ve-
hicle crash called in by
passer-by on cell, reporting a
vehicle in a ditch at the 76
mile marker on I-10. Upon
arrival, it was determined
that the Florida Highway
Patrol had already red-
tagged the vehicle and no fur-
ther action was needed.
On June 7, the MHV'FD
received a call about a vehicle
fire called at the Raceway gas
station, located at U.S. 90
and Hwy 285. Upon arrival,
firefighters determined that
the vehicle engine had sim-
ply overheated causing the
oil to smoke. No fire was de-
tected.
On June 8, a call came in
regarding a traffic accident
at Hwy. 1087 and Mill Creek
Road, called in by Mossy
Head firefighter on scene.
The wrecked motorcycle was
there but the driver was
missing and had apparently
left the scene.
...On June 9, the department
.got a call about a possible
suicidee a empt invoinmg a
'47 year-ol'orwii mn had
apparently overdosed on the
prescription drug, Ambien.
She was unconscious when
the firefighters arrive and
was transported by EMS
transported to a local hospi-
tal.
Firefighters also responded
to a minor accident at Hwy.
285 and the Bob Sikes Road.
There were no injuries and
only minor damage to the
vehicle.
They also responded to a
medical call involving 'a vic-
tim who was experiencing
continuous seizures.
MHVFD arrived. on scene
with EMS and provided as-
sistance while EMS trans-
ported the patient to a local
hospital..
On June 10, there was a
traffic accident at the inter-
section of U.S. 90 and Hwy.
285. One lane of traffic
blocked for approximately 25
minutes while patients were
attended to by firefighters
and EMS.
Firefighters also responded
to a call involving a five year
old boy, who had been bitten
in face by a dog. They
stopped the bleeding and at-
tended to patient until EMS
arrived and took over.
Next, the firefighters re-
sponded to another seizure
patient. They arrived on
scene with EMS and pro-
vided whatever assistance
was needed.
On June 11, firefighters
proved that no job is too big
or too small and performed
that most noble of acts, help-
ing to rescue a cat. The feline,
missing for three days. had
been found stuck in chimney.
The firefighters arrived and
encouraged the owner to of-
fer water to the thirsty ani-
nial. The cat came down.
On June 12, the depart-
ment fielded its second pos-
sible suicide attempt. The
man claimed to have taken
over 60 pills and was intoxi-
cated. Firefighters assisted
EMS.
According to Corsaro, on
Friday, June 10, a dinner was
held at the Emergency Op-
erations Center to honor the
volunteer fire departments of
Walton County.
"A big round of applause to


all the fire departments of
Walton County as well as to
all the EMS providers: dis-
patchers, paramedics, EMTs,
police, sheriff's deputies,
FHP, coroner, Fire Marshals,
who work so hard to help so
many and to make our com-
munity a safer, happier place
to live," she said.
"They use their own gas
and time to respond to calls
from wherever they happen
to be home, at lunch, in bed
or at work. They drop what-
ever they are doing in order


p -


to respond to a call, even if
that means getting up at
three in the morning to help
a sick person or.extricate
someone from a crushed car
- and still make it to their
day-job," she said. "They do
it because they want to help,
even though they don't get
paid a single dime. So please
remember to never treat
their efforts, or that of any
other volunteer department,
as trivial. After all, if they
weren't there, no one would
be."


With an address and map,
they could tell the
firefighters exactly how
many miles or minutes it
would take to get there and
what color the house was and
types of vehicles in the yard.

Editor's Comment


O're the ramparts we watched


By RON KELLEY

Here in Walton County, whenever we think of the Fourth
of July, we conjure up an image of parades, flags waving in
the breeze, hot dogs, lemonade, singing the National An-
them, big crowds and, of course, fireworks.
Thanks to the DeFuniak Business and Professional Asso-
ciation, this year's celebration features all that and much
more. I plan to be there. I wouldn't miss it for the world. It's
a wonderful event and the DBPA volunteers always do a
superb job. It's small-town Americana at its absolute finest
and it rarely fails to stir me. But it's not just the fireworks
and fun that draw me, it's also what lies behind the holiday
- the reason for the season, if you will.
I cannot help but admire those early Americans who risked
everything, including their lives, to stand up to tyrants and
tyranny, to say no to the iron rule of a king who was little
more than a despot in fine robes.
In 229 years, the United States ofAmerica has turned the
world on its ear and set the standard for living on this planet.
Yet, at times I think we have grown complacent. We have
our homes, our stocked refrigerators, our cars and trucks,
our televisions and remotes, our toys, both big and small.
It's so much easier to tune out disturbing news and tune in
another soapy reality show or some brainless sit-com.
At the risk of making you stop and think, let me share a
couple of excerpts from some other editorials that appeared
in Florida newspapers this week.
The Orlando Sentinel, discussing the Supreme Court's emi-
nent domain decision, said, "A sharply divided U.S. Supreme
Court (last) week may have bestowed far-reaching author-
ity on local governments to condemn property for private
economic-development purposes. But local governments
must now use that authority wisely. It would be absurd, for
example, for a local government to condemn low-income
housing simply to raise the local property-tax base or to en-
rich a developer buddy."
Can we securely place full trust in our government lead-
ers to display the wisdom of Solomon?
The South Florida Sun-Sentinel said: "Two weeks ago, the
House voted to delete a section of the Patriot Act that per-
mits the government to review people's library records. De-
spite the decisive 41-vote margin on Capitol Hill, the regu-
lations are likely to stick because the White House has vowed
to veto legislation that would strip this section of the law.
The time for review is at hand. A thorough, smart and dis-
passionate evaluation of the entire Patriot Act is necessary.
to spot what works, to offer additional provisions or regula-
tiongand to identify those measures that unnece-sarily in-
trude on rights without strengthening the nation's security."
Actually, the library card issue is the least dangerous of
the provisions, but it serves to deflect Americans from pon-
dering the more frightening aspects of the bill, which may
have been the intent.
On the flag-burning bill, The News-Press of Fort Myers
said, "We share the revulsion of the vast majority ofAmeri-
cans at flag-burning and other acts of vandalism against
our national symbol. And we detest the louts who burn Old
Glory. But the principle here is as clear as it is painful. Flag-
burning is a form of political expression, and as such should
remain protected. If we refuse to protect ugly or unpopular
forms of expression, we will all sooner or later find our rights
endangered."
Like you, I find most of these issues troubling because I
want so fervently to believe that America is just a good as
it's supposed to be, but the headlines make me wonder.
I do not have the answers, so I must defer to those far
wiser than myself, the men and women who first envisioned
a country built upon the concept of life, liberty and the pur-
suit of happiness.
It was Thomas Jefferson, the author of our Declaration of
Independence, who said, "The spirit of resistance to govern-
ment is so valuable upon occasions, that I wish it to always
be kept alive."

The mind that gave us the concept of electricity, Ben
Franklin, said, "Those who give up essential liberties for
temporary safety deserve neither." Finally, the one we re-
vere as the father of our country, George Washington said,
"Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism."
I guess it's true what they say a little revolution is a
good thing.
On this Fourth of July, I hope you'll be doing what I'll be
doing gathering with friends and family to celebrate our
independence, to ponder the words of our society's creators

Editor,
May I share with my fellow citizens, a prayer of confes-
sion, at time. of great need, in many ways, even more so
today.
Father, we confess that the corporate character of our sins
is largely unknown to us.
We have yet to learn to think in the category of "commu-
nity."
We have been so absorbed with our personal guilt that we
have overlooked the sins which are ours as a church.
We have often forgotten the city at our door.
We have provided inadequately for our mission to the
world.
We have frequently neglected the needs of our society.
We have seldom led the way in the pursuit of social jus-
tice.
We have been hesitant to speak against the wrongs and
injustice of our community.
We have been slow and afraid to speak for the corrective
and redemptive measures of our corporate life.
Father forgive us these sins and harness our common
energies to your labors in the world where you send us.
Amen.

Angus M. Douglass

Editor,
It's hard to believe that when the economic growth of our
town is in the state that is in, that the City Council would
choose to tighten sign ordinances. What could they possibly
be thinking? Certainly, they have not touched base with the
business people of our community to discuss the needs and
necessities for their businesses to survive, let along thrive.
I can understand not wanting gaudy signage all over town,
but to discourage and not permit signs that would be pleas-
ing and help the downtown economy is just ridicules. Com-
mittees can be used to set forth guidelines for business own-
ers in size, color and desired design which would eliminate
signage that would be intrusive, but, would still allow for
businesses to be seen and found.
When I lived in another historically-interested town, I
needed to submit drawings, color and size, first to a Histori-
cal Board who, upon approval, would grant permission for
submittal to the Town Council. This two-step process with
historically minded people who would take every effort to
comply with the towns surroundings and not allow for neon,
overpowering or gaudy signage, allowed the business to gen-
erate customers yet not conflict with the beautiful surround-
ings of a historical town. There is nothing wrong with guide-
lines and restrictions but to do what is taking place here in
DeFuniak is nothing more than blatant sabotage of a strug-
gling downtown.
Already I am saddened that "Southerbys Antiques" has
had to cover up beautiful awnings which were classy in de-
sign, not to mention expensive. She has also been forced to
remove a tiny sign on 331 that let people know that she was
down that side street. From my understanding, once forced
to take up that small sign her business decreased so that
she had to start limiting her opening hours.
Mamie's had to tar over its new roof signs which unfortu-
nately took away from the lovely new lettering on their nice
new roof. The tar was far worse than having the Mamie's
lettering.
We are also losing Myra J's Dress Shop, one of the few
remaining retail shops left in town. She has some of the
most beautiful clothing in the panhandle but how can we
expect her business to survive when there is no way to let
passing visitors know that there even is a downtown?
There are numerous businesses that have been affected
by these sign laws, too many to mention in this one letter.
In most cases, common sense was not utilized when signage
was the issue.
We don't even have a beautiful sign to welcome people to
our downtown? The only sign I have ever seen is a beat up,
falling down wreck of a sign on 331 where they used to ad-
vertise the Victorian Ball. If you judge a book by its cover
and this is what we show people entering our city limits,
I'm afraid the downtown will never return to the thriving
bustling town it once was.
SWe must not be misled into thinking just because the park-
ing spaces are full in town that the town is doing well. When
quality retail shops are struggling and even closing, we need
to take a closer look at the reasons why. Any business savvy
person will tell you that signage is one of the most impor-
tant aspects of building clientele. Without proper signage,
customers can't find you. No signs=no customers=no busi-
ness.
Perhaps the city will be happy when all the retail in the
downtown area is gone, maybe they want a ghost town, who
knows? If they don't want a ghost town, and they truly want
a thriving community then I think that they better hurry
up and start working with the community as a whole, busi-
ness, organizations and citizens alike. Otherwise this town
is destined for ruin.

Editor,
Our aftercare group attended Vacation Bible School at
Southwide Baptist Church, June 6-10. It is such a special
thing for a child to go to VBS in the summer; it leaves memo-
ries that are cherished for a lifetime.
Our appreciation to everyone that helped with VBS. I want
to encourage every parent reading this to get their child to
a VBS this summer. It will change their life. Some churches
will even pick up the children, as Southwide did for our
group.
I am enclosing a letter written by an eight-year-old little
girl, who happens to be our daughter, Shelci Roehm, to her
teacher, Mrs. Mary Jane Sconiers and Southwide Baptist
7Curch. This tells you how special VBS is to a child. ,
Thank y6u, Mrs. Mary Jane and Southwide. It reminds
me of the' song "Thank You for Giving to the EL&r.

Editor,
If you dream it...it can happen! Just as John F. Kenndey
dreamed that a person could land on the moon and return
safely to earth, I have also had a dream since my kinder-
garten year at Freeport Elementary School. My dream was
to attend Space Camp in Huntsville; AL. This summer, my
dream came true when I was awarded the scholarship to
the NASA Space Camp.
This was an experience I will never forget and I would
like to thank Mr. Dickey, Mrs. Smith and our Freeport El-
ementary PTO for this opportunity. I hope many other stu-
dents have this chance of a life time" '

A request to allow a new
business to work within the
Riviera Distributing Com-
pany, located in the old air-

Stan Luke represented the
company. requesting that a
wholesale distributor be al-
lowed to sell directly to the
public from inside the current
business. The distribution
will be low-cost groceries, soft
drinks, candy, beauty sup-
plies and other small-scale
items.
The business would gener-
ate one to two new jobs and
increase the tax base of the
company. The addition would
involve revisions to the
present three-year lease
agreement but would involve
no structural changes to the
building.
Mathis noted that a new
rental fee would also be ne-
gotiated.

request until the city attor-

representatives and negoti-

Surviving a hurricane


By TAMMY KEARCE
As hurricane season 2005
gets under way, national
weather models predict an-
other active year. This comes
as no surprise to the gulf
coast since the season's first
two weeks brought Tropical
Storm Arlene. Once a hurri-
cane moves into the area,
time to prepare diminishes
rapidly, so preparation is key
to survival: plotting evacua-
tion routes, assembling a
hurricane kit, securing struc-
tures etc.
Because storms vary in in-
tensity, the decision to stay
or evacuate should be based
on the hurricane's strength
and location in relation to the
area, the structure's location
and composition and per-
sonal sensitivity to violent
weather. It is important to
remember that the Choc-
tawhatchee Bay Bridge will
close when winds reach 40
m.p.h. as will bridges in Oka-
loosa and Bay counties, so
evacuation is impossible af-
ter that time.
Whether evacuating or


staying, there are early pre-
cautions that can minimize
damage. Trim trees, remov-
ing diseased or dead limbs
and strategically remove
branches, providing vents for
wind to blow through. Secure
lawn furnishings and any-
thing that could become a
projectile in high winds.
Strengthen windows, glass
doors and garage doors. Since
most shelters do not allow
pets, it is important to ar-
range for their care well in
advance.
When evacuating the area
be prepared and leave early
because traffic congestion
can make driving conditions
dangerous. Choose two or
three places that would be
appropriate for evacuation
and know the route well. Let
friends and family know
about contingency plans in
advance. When staying in a
shelter, bring food, water, pil-
lows and blankets for each
member of the family. Have
an adequate supply of medi-
cations and necessary medi-
cal equipment on hand for at
least one week. Take impor-


tant papers and enough cash
for one week.

If staying through a hurri-
cane, identify a "safe" room,
preferably an interior room -
a room in the center of the
house with no windows or
outside walls- and stay in it
throughout the storm. Pre-
pare a hurricane kit that con-
sists of everything essential
to survival for the next five
days: water, three gallons per
person per day; non-perish-
able food; medications,
enough for one week; battery
operated radio; flash lights;
manual can opener; batter-
ies; first aid kit; large ice
chest; pet food and water;
rain gear; bleach, 16 drops
will purify one gallon of wa-
ter and a list of utility phone
numbers to report outages
when conditions clear. Put
important papers, cash and
credit cards in a watertight
container in the safe room.

Make sure automobiles are
full of gas and generators
have enough fuel to run for
five to seven days. Have at

During the storm, stay in-
side the safe room with the
door closed. Tune in to news
reports on television or radio.
Be patient and remember
that calm conditions may in-
dicate the eye of the storm
and present a false sense of
security. Never open doors or
windows to check conditions
during a storm or go outside
before emergency officials
have given the all clear.
After the storm, report util-
ity outages only once. Inspect
property for hazards or dam-
age. Stay tuned to the radio
for boil water alerts, and pho-
tograph damage to homes
and automobiles before com-
pleting temporary repairs.
The Red Cross and FEMA
are two primary relief agen-
cies and temporary office lo-
cations will be broadcast on
local radio and television sta-
tions. Repairs should be done
only by qualified, licensed
contractors, so always ask to
see proper documentation
before repairs begin.
Taking a proactive ap-
proach to hurricane season
can reduce stress and prop-
erty damage while increasing
personal safety, so act now
and protect the future.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 30, 2005


New legislation will

restrict some over-

the-counter drugs


Office of Drug Control Di-
rector Jim McDonough and
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement Commissioner
Guy Tunnell was joined by
the Florida Retail Federation
today to announce new leg-
islation passed this year de-
signed to curb the production
of methamphetamine by re-
stricting the sale of over-the-
counter drugs often used to
manufacture it.
House Bill 1347, which
goes into effect July 1, will re-
quire retailers to limit the
sale of sole active ingredient
pseudoephedrine (PSE) prod-
ucts to three packages or
nine base grams. It will also
require retailers of PSE to
display the products behind
a counter or restrict customer
access. The measure was
sponsored by Rep. Greg
Evers and Sen. Durrell
Peaden. Florida joins a grow-
ing number of states passing
legislation designed to limit
access to PSE products from
criminals' intent on manufac-
turing methamphetamine.
"This legislation is abso-
lutely necessary in the fight
against methamphetamine,"
Director McDonough said. "If

The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) is providing ser-
vice men and women a new
way to enjoy their favorite
outdoor activities.
Beginning July 1, the FWC
will offer a Military Gold
Sportsman's License to ac-
tive duty and retired military
that are stationed in Florida
or have lived ir, th -L;t.lt fi-,r
six months and claim Florida
as their primary residence.,
The reduced-fee annual li-
cense ($20) offers the same
privileges as the traditional
Gold Sportsman's License
S($83.50). It includes hunting,
saltwater fishing and fresh-
*water fishing licenses and
wildlife management area,
archery, muzzleloading gun,
turkey, Florida waterfowl,
snook and crawfish permits.
The Military Gold,
Sportsman's Licenses are
only available at tax collec-
tors' offices. Those wishing to
purchase one must show
their military ID cards plus
a Florida driver's license or
orders showing they are sta-
tioned in Florida.
Tax Collector Rhonda
Skipper stated, "We look for-
ward to issuing this special
license, to our hometown he-
roes who have or are cur-
rently serving in our armed
forces."

about this license or other
services provided by the of-
fice of the Tax Collector 850-

we are to avoid the depths of
the terrible problems caused
by methamphetamine abuse
we need to have a timely and
proactive collective response
to defeat this scourge. This
law is another element in
Florida's fight to contain the
spread of Meth abuse."
Methamphetamine is
manufactured using common
household products, particu-
larly over-the-counter cold
medicines containing pseu-
doephedrine. Methamphet-
amine produces a more po-
tent and longer-lasting high
than crack cocaine, and the
manufacture, distribution
and use of methamphet-
amine is on the rise through-
out Florida.
Clandestine meth labs are
growing exponentially na-
tionwide. The Drug Enforce-
ment Administration reports
more than 15,000 seizures of
meth lab and meth lab ma-
terials nationally in 2004
alone. In Florida, there were
277 seizures. With these
numbers increasing state-
wide, the danger for Florida
is more than apparent.
The new measure will re-
quire retailers to train any
employee who handles PSE
in retail transactions on the
state and federal regulations
In addition to the restric-
tions placed on over-the-
counter drugs containing
PSE, the legislation also pro-
vides minimum mandatory
sentences for those who ex-
pose children to the hazards
of a meth lab, adds new pen-
alties for meth lab operators
who injure law enforcement
officers responding to labs,
and enhances safety guide-
lines for the storage and
transportation of anhydrous
ammonia, another chemical
commonly used in the manu-
facture of meth.

moved here to start a new
ministry, and he asked for
the use of the Freeport Com-
munity Center on Sundays
for his work. City Attorney
Clayton Adkinson cautioned
that such activity could be
seen as a separation of
church and state issue. Mem-
bers of the council also ex-
pressed concern about this
and told Fogarty that they
would not be able to grant his
request. Dr. Satterwhite then
re-entered the discussion and
graciously offered to let
Fogarty use the Methodist
facilities so long as there
were no conflicts with the
activities of that congrega-
tion.

My Name Is America

M.y-name is America.

This land is yours and mine!

My mountains and forest are
ageless,

I have rivers that sparkle
and shine!

My valleys reach from shore
to shore.

I have fields of waving grain.

I am over two-hundred years
old.

Pioneers roamed all over my
plains!

My waves dash against the
seashore,

flinging their spray into the
air.

My canyons change color in
sunlight,

white, puffy clouds cover
them there.

God's cathedral is in my for-
est,

where Redwoods majesti-
cally stand.

There's a silence here, a
whisper,

in this century old land!

My sons have fought for free-
dom,

so Old Glory could fly in
peace.

Our flag brings a tear to my
eye,

for those whose lives have
ceased.

My Liberty Bell will ring out
loud,

on this Independence Day.


My name is America.

God bless the USA!

Jack Rhodes, consultant
for Hammock Bay, addressed
the council and explained
that the developer had ar-
ranged for Paul Miller of the
West Florida Regional Plan-
ning Council to participate
in the review of the small
scale amendments intro-
duced by Henninger and that
the developer would pay the
fees associated with this
work.
The council approved the
readings and advertising for
the second readings.
Henninger then presented
a request for approval of a
development order for Ham-
mock Oaks Estates, a 158- lot
subdivision on property off of
West Bay Loop Road that in-
cludes "quite a bit" of wet-
lands. Henninger said the
lots would be clustered on the

On Friday, June 24 fire
service and emergency
service employees of Walton
County voted in favor of
union representation by the
International Association of
Firefighters ("IAFF"), local

16 in favor of union represen-
tation. Two employees did
not vote.

The effect of this vote is

ment order.
Henninger followed this
with a request for a develop-
ment order for construction
of a 2,600+ square foot. den-
tal office by Mary Hencinski,
DMD, on property at the
northwest corner of Blue-
berry and U.S. Hwy. 331.
Subject to correction of minor
outstanding issues, the coun-
cil approved the request.
Henninger asked for and
received approval to add back
an item unintentionally
omitted from the agenda. She
then presented the first read-
ing of an ordinance which
will allow the city to issue
letters of exception to owners
of single family residential
homes which were legally
established and constructed
under Walton County regu-
lations in areas since an-
nexed and now under a dif-
ferent set of regulations. This
would allow these owners to
get financing to repair major


ing conditions will now be
subject to negotiations be-
tween the county and
the union. All employees,
even those who voted against
representation by the IAFF,
are how represented by the
union.
County Administrator
Ronnie Bell stated that the
county will fully comply with
its new obligation to recog-
nize the employees' exclusive
representative.

Col. "Mike Grimaldi: Miramar Beach Visionary

By Dot Adams


There is a stretch of coastal property extending six miles
east of the Okaloosa County line that is frequently called
Destin by many local commercial entities. Actually, that
land is in south Walton County's Miramar Beach.
In 1924, at the age of 29, a young New Yorker who had
served with Gen. John J. Pershing in Mexico, tracking
down bandit Pancho Villa, and who later completed a
stint in World War I, ventured into Florida in search of
homestead land he had heard about.
After touring the entire state by water, rail and foot, he
arrived in northwest Florida and was smitten by its peace,
beauty and possibilities. The young man was Col. "Mike"
Grimaldi (captain at the time). Mike sent for his younger
brother and together they cleared land in the woods and
built their houses. He then sent for his wife and they
lived in the spectacular, though isolated area for almost a
year before returning north.
Now a successful businessman and active in the Army
Reserve, the colonel and family would return to the coast
for periods of time in the 1930s and couldn't wait to make
the coast their permanent home. It would be in 1947,
following his service in World War II and retirement, that
they finally would make the move.


Col. "Mike," with his vision, talent and energy, made
an indelible mark upon the entire "Miracle Strip," as
the area was called during'that period. He promoted its
growth and his accomplishments were legion.
He founded South Walton Utilities; developed
Miramar Beach Precinct #29; encouraged armed forces
veterans to organize the Miramar Beach American Le-
gion Post 264; was selected by the DeFuniak Springs
Chamber of Commerce to represent the beach and pen-
insula areas of Walton County; promoted the Destin
Fishing Rodeo; and served as president of the White
Sand Beaches association, the organization that adver-
tised northwest Florida as an all-year-round resort area.
At his passing in 1968, the Playground Daily News
(now the Northwest Florida Daily News), had this to
say in tribute to Col. Michael Grimaldi:
"In this place, where almost every other person one
meets is a colonel, when someone mentioned THE Colo-
nel, you knew he was referring to none other that Colo-
nel Grmialdi.
'Old Soldiers Never Die, They Just Fade Away.' And
with the fading of Colonel Grimaldi, a lot of color has
faded from the Miracle Strip."

Mary Elizabeth Ford Jack-
son, better known as Mama
Lizzie, neighbor and friend,
who lives in the house by the
side of the road, was born
June 19, 1905. She is now
100 years old.
She has been the eyes and
ears of this neighborhood.
"According to one neighbor, if
you needed a friend, she was
always available; if you
needed help in any ways, she
was not afraid to roll up her
sleeves and get busy. She
took her community to heart.
Many could not have had a
college education without
her. She never waited to be
asked, she was always there.
"Her hands were always
busy, cooking, cleaning, mak-
ing items to give away. Her
purse always had a coin or
two and her mind was work-
ing to see what was needed.-
The sun did not always shine
on her window pane, but a
rainbow always followed the
rain."
Friends are asked to stop
by and chat with her. She
loves visitors.

The secret of encouragement

By DR. ROBERT M. JAYE

Within Hebrews 11:1-6 are found these words: "Now faith
is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things
not seen." Everyone needs encouragement once in a while,
even as the people in Hebrews did. They needed to see the
supremacy of Christ and follow Him. Hebrews is the records
of their faith, and an encouragement for ours.
Verse 6 states that the first fundamental fate of life is,
that God is. The Bible never argues the existence of God. It
merely announces it and accepts it. Genesis 1:1 says, "In
the beginning God..." That is what the bible declares
throughout its pages. It is a book of the experiences of men
believing in God encouraged by God revealing and man
responding. V
He is great God who gave us His Son, Jesus Christ. He is
worthy of our faith, and that should give us encourage-
ment. Look at the universe He has for us to enjoy. Bad times
come, of course. But let us be encouraged. The sun and the
rain come on the just and the unjust. In that regard we are
treated alike. Yet let us recall the salvation that is in Christ.
Is not there encouragement there? Of course, for God is in-
deed great.'
God is a God of power, knowledge, and purpose. That is
His reason for giving us the Savior. His power could do it,
He had the knowledge to do it, and His purpose was the
salvation of all who believe on the name of Jesus. This is
the call that comes to us today, which encourages us great
faith in a great God.
This God is with us. Having faith in Him will encourage
us to believe that His son can be our Savior. This is our
inspiration to be encouraged. Jesus is our encouragement.
The secret of experiencing His presence and power is faith.
Responding to Him gives encouragement.

SEEDS
FROM
THE
SOWER'
Michael A. Guido
Metter, Georgia


A girl cried, "That boy's
annoying me."
"Dear," replied her mother,
"he's not even looking at you."
"Yes," she admitted, "that's
why he's annoying me."
But the Lord's looking at
you. The Living Bible says,
"He is always thinking about
you and watching everything
that concerns you."
I know there are many who
say with the Psalmist, "There
is no one who takes notice of
me, no one cares for me." But
they are wrong.
The Lord takes notice of
you. He has even numbered
the hairs of your head. His
eyes are upon you, His ears
are open to you, and His arms
are underneath you.
Why don't you put your trust
in this faithful Friend who
loves you?






Late one night some men
broke into a department
store. To steal? No, to switch
price tags.
They had a good laugh the
next morning when custom-
ers found fur coasts for one
dollar and face cream for one
thousand dollars, television
sets for fifty cents and tooth-
picks for five hundred dol-
lars.
Has someone stolen into
your life and switched the
price tags? Do you major on
the temporal and minor on
the eternal?. Is your body
more valuable than your
soul, cash more important
than Christ?
No wonder the Lord asks,
"What profit is there if you
gain ,the whole world-and
lose eternal life?"


Ministry Is oo Heavy A
Burden.To Do Alone

By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC
Sponsored by T.P. Motors
The apostle Paul described himself and Apollos as
"simply fellow-workers for and with God" (1 Corinthians
3:9, Weymouth translation). In these words, Paul rec-
ognized that ministry is too heavy a burden unless we
recognize we are in the field with one another and with
God.
Ministers pastors, church staff members, denomi-
national workers, missionaries, laypeople do not sim-
ply work. We work WITH. Have you ever heard some-
one say,"I just can't work with that person?"
Paul openly acknowledged that he needed Apollos.
The seeds that Paul planted would: have died had
Apollos not watered. As we serve Christ, we are cowork-
ers, synergistic partners. Ministerial isolationists do not
last; they burn out.
In the Muir Woods north of San Francisco, you may
have seen the great Coastal Redwoods. They tower to-
ward heaven forming a cathedral of trees. You do not
find these thousand-year-old trees growing in isolation.
They stand together. Actually, they hold one another up.
Their roots entangle and one tree supports another dur-
ing the raging storms and'winds that attack the grove.
That is why they last.
We also are God's coworkers in ministry. One of the
lonesome times in.my life was when my nearest minis-
ter friend was over 500 miles away.
The responsibilities of serving Christ are too heavy,
too overwhelming unless we awaken each morning with
the sense that we are in it WITH GOD.
If you try to minister without the sense of partner-
ship with God, you will be like the gasoline truck driver
pictured sometime ago in anAssociated Press wire photo.
The driver had a tanker filled with gas to be delivered
along his route, but he was sitting'on the running board
of his cab, going nowhere.
Why? He had run out of gas while delivering the gas.
Likewise, you will run out of gas in ministry if you have
no sense that God is for you and with you in the task.
The venerable Major Ian Thomas, now in his 90s,
has traveled the world since World War II emphasizing
that only CHRIST IN US can minister. He will hold up
a white glove in the pulpit, telling the glove to pick up a
Bible and hold it. But, of course, the glove only hangs
limp until Major Thomas places his hand in the glove.
Then everything possible to the hand becomes pos-
sible to the glove. Our ministry is a co-working with
God, letting God infuse our humanity with his divinity.
Be a supporter and encourager to your fellow minis-
ters. Allow others to stand with you. And always remem-
ber that your ministry is a partnership with God.,.
We invite you to attend the exciting Freeport United
Methodist Church. We are not perfect, but we are all
forgiven by the grace of God. We have a service that will
help you on your journey with God. Sunday school 8:45;
,worship 9:45 a.m.; Sunday evening ,6 p.m.; Wednesday,
6 p.m.
Stop by here on your way to eternity. Ever saint has
a past, every sinner a future.

Milton's Ryne Jernigan has opted to leave Florida State's
baseball team and transfer after being told by coach Mike
Martin he would have to compete for the starting job at
shortstop next season. Jernigan started 65 of 71 games for
the Seminoles this past season but hit only .217.
Freeports Amber DeGafferelly was selected to the All State
Class 2A softball team as a third team selection as an out-
fielder. DeGafferelly hit .298 for the season and scored 36.
runs for the Bulldogs. She was the winning pitcher in 18 of
the 20 games that Freeport won in 2005.
Florida joins Florida State as the only other school in the
state to have played for a national championship in basket-
ball, baseball and football. Miami has won titles in football
and baseball, but has never qualified for the basketball title
game.
San Antonio has won three of the last seven NBA titles.
The Spurs Game 7 win over Detroit was their first Game 7
in a series since the 1990 Western Conference semifinals. "

Sports news in review


By CHUCK HINSON
Freeport graduates sign
with LBW: Freeport High
School's Candace Nelson,
Amber DeGafferely and Ash-
ley Duke, all signed with
Lurleen B. Wallace College
in Andalusia, AL. Anderson,
an outfielder, Duke an in-
fielder and DeGafferely,
starting pitcher for the Lady
Bulldogs softball team, were
all awarded scholarships to
play softball.
DeGafferely led the Lady
Bulldogs for their 18 of 20
wins. She was also named
third team All State in Class
2A for the 2005 season.
FSU DT ineligible: An-
other blow to the Florida
State football program was
dealt last Monday morning
when the university ruled
that starting defensive
tackle Clifton Dickson was
ineligible to play this upcom-
ing season. His dual enroll-
ment at Tallahassee Com-
munity College will not allow
him to graduate until De-
cember, thus missing the
2005 football season.
ESPN wants no part in
polls: ESPN withdrew from
the college football coaches'
poll last week, to make them
the second major news or-
ganization to say it did not
want to be a part of the Bowl





892-3232



892-7991


Championship Series deci-
sions. The cable sports net-
work said they would no
longer want:-: their name
attached to the rankings
unless all ballots were made
public, notjust the final ones.
In December, the Associ-
ated Press told the BCS to
stop using its media poll in
their weekly top 25 formula.
USA Today is the only major
organization that will con-
tinue running the polls,
which helps determine the
national championship.
Walton takes over UF
softball: The University of
Florida has hired Wichita
State coach Tim Walton in
hopes that he will lead the
team to a national champion-
ship. He has been at Wichita
State for the past three years
nad led the ladies softball
team to their first NCAA
tournament in 16 years, this
past May.
Wichita State broke old
school records during last
year's season, including fin-
ishing the season with 46
wins. Walton replaces Karen
Johns, who was fired last
month after losing four con-
secutive games at home.
Stewart takes Dodge/
Save Mart 350: Tony Ste-
wart once again could feel
the excitement and satisfac-
tion as he crossed the finish
line and entered the winner's
circle on Sunday at the
Dodge/Save Mart 350 at In-
fineon Raceway in Sonoma,


CA.
With his fourth-gear shot
and his third-gear grinding,
Stewart knew he had to pull
out all the brakes if he was
going to take the lead from
Ricky Rudd. He took the ulti-
mate and defining lead when
he passed race favorite Jeff
Gordon, who had problems of
his own with his transmis-
sion.
The win was the first vic-
tory for Stewart since last
August when he won at
Watkins Glen International,
the only other road circuit on
the NASCAR Nextel Cup
schedule.
Tracy wins Grand Prix: It
was all Paul Tracy as he
maintained the lead and
pulled into the winner's
circle at the Cleveland
Grand Prix on Sunday. He
was knocked out of the race
last year after being rear-
ended and he has not won the
Champ Car Grand Prix since
1993.
The victory was the 30th
career win for the 36 year-old
Canadian driver. It also
made him the seventh place
on the Champ's Car all-time
list.
Kim wins LPGA tourna-
ment: Birdie Kim saved her
career and the championship
title when the 23-year-old
toppled 17-year-old Morgan
Pressel for the victory at the
Cherry Hill's Village Golf
Course in Colorado.
It was considered on of the


most dramatic shots in
LPGA history as Kim holed a
30-yard bunker shot from
across the 18th green and
then watched in disbelief as
the ball dissapeared into the
18th hole cup.
Pressel heard the reaction of
the crowd on the last hole
and immediately knew the
game was all Kim's.
Kim finished at 3-over 287
and earned $560,000, the
biggest payoff in women's
golf.
Gottfried sgins long-term
contract: University of Ala-
bama head basketball coach
Mark Gottfried has signed a
new six-year contract with a
base salary of $200,000 base
salary and $800,000 in tal-
ent fees.
In a statement released, it
reported that the new con-
tract and endorsements, will
make Gottfried the first Ala-
bama basketball coach to
reach the million-dollar
mark. He has been coaching
the Crimson Tide ince 1998
and has a record of 148-83.


Michael Grazzini threw a
no-hitter for Freeport 12-
year-old all-Stars, on Satur-
day, June 25, at Destin.
Michael struck out 11 and
walked one batter helping
Freeport defeat DeFuniak


Springs All-Stars, 4-0.
Grazzini and Dalton
Morrison had hits, combined
with key bunts that put
Freeport in the lead, and
they never looked back:

Two shark


attacks leave


one dead, one


seriously injured


By BRUCE COLLIER

Two separate shark at-
tacks, one on June 25 and the
other on June 27, have re-
sulted in the death of a 14-
year old girl and the serious
injury of a 16-year-old boy.
The first attack occurred at
11:15 a.m. CST on Saturday,
about 200 yards offshore of
Miramar Beach in south
Walton County.
Jamie Marie Daigle, of
Gonzales, Louisiana, was
swimming with a friend, 14-
year-old Felicia Venable, also
of Gonzales. The girls were
surfong on boogie boards.
According to the Walton
County Sheriff's briefing re-
port, Daigle was "severely


bitten" by the shark, and was
being pulled under. Venable
went ashore to get help.
A surfer, Jack Timothy
Dicus, 54, of Destin, swam
over with his board to Daigle,
and pulled her onto it. Dicus
said that when he reached
Daigle, she was face ddwn in
the water, surrounded by
blood.
As they headed for shore,
the shark continued to attack
Daigle. Dicus attempted to
distract the shark, then to
fight it off. The shark re-
turned and continued trying
to attack Daigle, making "as
many as five separate at-
tempts" before Dicus reached
the shore,

trict and the Walton County
Sheriff's Beach Patrol had
arrived. They rendered first
aid to Daigle, but the girl was
pronounced dead when the
air ambulance arrived.
An autopsy was per-
formed, attended by Dr. Erich
Ritter. Ritter is chief scientist
of the Global Shark Attack
File in New Jersey, and an
expert on shark behavior.
Speaking at aWCSO press
conference held in south Wal-
ton County on June 27,
Ritter stated his findings
that the attack was likely
made by a six-foot-long bull
shark.
Based on his examination
of the bites and wounds, and
his experience with shark
attacks, Ritter believes that
the attack was motivated by
"competition."
This means that the shark
was likely pursuing fish for
food, and perceived Daigle as
a competing predator, or as a
hindrance to its hunt.
The number and degree of
the wounds caused Daigle to
bleed to death. Ritter was
certain that only one shark
was involved.
Shortly before the press


conference, at around 11 a.m.
EDT, a second shark attack
occurred some 80 miles east
of the first one.
Gulf County officials re-
ported that Craig Adam
Hutto, 16, of Lebanon, Ten-
nessee, was fishing in waist-
deep water,on a sandbar
some 60 feet off Cape San
Blas. With him in the water
were his brother and a
friend.
Hutto and his companions
had returned to shore with
their catch, then gone back
to the sandbar.
After casting into deeper
water, Hutto was apparently
bitten in the left thigh by a
shark of unknown size and
species.
His companions drove off
the shark, but Hutto received
serious wounds to his right
thigh, calf, ankle, and foot.
Hutto was airlifted to Bay
Medical Center in Panama.
City, where surgery was per-
formed. He is expected to
live.
At the press conference,
Ritter and other authorities
said there was no reason to
suspect that both attacks had
been made by the same

Septic systems


to be repaired,


not replaced


By TIANA LARSEN

Although they directed
Ronnie Bell, county adminis-
trator, to work with Regional
Utilities to come up with a so-
lution, the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) went no fur-
ther than that towards mov-
ing the small subdivision off
of septic systems and onto
public sewer.
Both Hurricane Ivan and
Tropical Storm Arlene ex-
posed septic tanks and dam-
aged drain fields at
beachfront homes in Gulf
Trace. Four homes were con-
demned temporarily after
Arlene, pending repair of
functional septic systems.
The BCC was clearly di-
vided on the question of man-
dating sewer on private prop-
erty. "The county has never
mandated sewer hook-up.
There is a big difference be-
tween asking and ordering,"
said Commissioner Ro
Cuchens.
Commissioner Scott
Brannon agreed. "It is impor-
tant to get sewer around the
Gulf, the lakes and the bay,
but on the other hand it is a
serious thing for a county
government to impose it on
property owners," Brannon
said.
Commissioner Cindy
Meadows, who represents
the district where Gulf Trace
is located, disagreed. "This
goes beyond private property.
It is a matter of public health
and safety. The difference is
that this is a public issue,"
Meadows said.
Pat Blackshear, director of
planning and development,


wrote in her agenda submis-
sion form to the BCC that she
was requesting the BCC to
require the connection to
public sewer, based on a pub-
lic health, safety and welfare
risk from repeated exposure
of existing septic tanks.
Speaking for the Walton
County Health Department,
Crystal Steele told the BCC
that three of the homes can
meet the setback require-
ments for septic tanks, and
the fourth will be able to with
some modifications. "All four
can be repaired," she said.
The problem for Regional
Utilities is twofold. The roads
in Gulf Trace are private, so
in order to install public
sewer and water, easements
must be obtained from the
property owners.
The cost to install public
water and sewer today would
be about $400,000, Regional
Utilities stated in a recent
letter. In the same letter, Re-
gional said it would only be
possible if all the homeown-
ers in the subdivision signed
up for both water and sewer.
Three Gulf Trace owners,
including James Earl Ray,
who owns three of the four
condemned homes, told the
BCC they do not want public
sewer.

One owner spoke in favoi:
of public water and sewer,
noting that the privately-'
owned well water system
does not provide, in her opin-:
ion, adequate fire protection:.
Regional Utilities surveyed
75 Gulf Trace owners in the
past; 19 wanted the services,
35 declined and 21 did not
respond.


Seagrove fire house opens with a dedication


By DOTTY NIST

"This is dedicated to the
memory of a trueihkob," said
South Walton Fire Diztrict.
Chief Les Hallm~n.


Hallman's remarks came
at a June 22 dedication of the
South Walton Fire District's
(SWFD) new Seagrove Sta-
tion to former SWFD para-
medic Robert Heighton.


tr~


Heighton was one of the
three crew members of the
AirHeartl helicopter who
died when the air ambulance
crashed into the Choc-
tawhatchee Bay in October
2004.
While SWFD personnel
have been operating out of
the new station for about six
months, the official opening
had been delayed, partly due
to arrangements for the dedi-
cation ceremony, including
the preparation of an impres-
sive granite and bronze me-
morial honoring Heighton
The memorial was un-
veiled at the dedication as
the firefighters saluted.
Hallman remarked on the
incongruity between the
somewhat serious ceremony


and the irrepressible sense of
humor that Heighton had al-
ways displayed.
Heighton, a Gulf Breeze
resident, had 24 years in
emergency services and had
served as a flight medic with
the SWFD andAirHeartl for
two years at the time of the
accident.
Attendees at the dedica-
tion ceremony had the oppor-
tunity to tour the new
10,000-square-foot tradi-
tional-style facility, which is
located at the north end of
the WaterColor Crossing
(Publix) shopping center.
The building, which com-
bines aesthetics and func-
tion, was put in place

See DEDICATION 4C


A PLAQUE IN MEMORY of former SWFD paramedic
Robert Heighton reminds anyone entering the Seagrove Sta-
tion of a true example of service and dedication.


THE STATION was designed by a St. Joe Company team
Sin a comfortable neo-traditional style in keeping with that of
the WaterColor development.


THE NEW SEAGROVE Fire House is one of five stations
serving the area south of the bay in Walton County.


SOUTH WALTON Fire District personnel and adminis-
trators honor the memory of one of their own, paramedic

Golf carts not on i


par for county


highway planners i


By DOTTY NIST

The small vehicles that are
becoming more and more
numerous south of the bay
are on the Okaloosa-Walton
Transportation Planning
Organization's radar screen.
Among action items at the
transportation planning
body's June 16 meeting, the
members approved vision
and mission statements for a
2030 long range transporta-
tion plan.
Included in the resolution
approving the statements
was langu:,i;c calling for lo-
cal governments to encour-
age developers to "'p:' \ ide for
alternate forms of transpor-
tation,"
Discussions in Walton
County at It.-..c input.meet-
ings on the statements had
emphasized the need to ad-
dress the use of golf carts as
a means of transportation.
Okaloosa-Walton Trans-
portation Planning Organi-
zation (TPO) Director Mike
Ziegler noted that, while
there are difficulties, legal
and otherwise, associated
with incorporating golf carts
into the transportation sys-
tem, it is necessary to begin
that effort.


"They will be the mobility
solution for many of our ag-
ing population," he said of the
vehicles.
Ziegler was aware of some
golf carts that are equipped
to be "street legal."
TPO member Cindy Mead-
ows asked TPO staff to de-
velop a list of all alternative
modes of transportation and
information on whether they
are legal on the road or not.
Meadows commented that
roads are getting so crowded
that "we're going to have to
get people out of their cars."
Also at the June 16 meet-
ing, Walton County District
4 Commissioner Ro Cuchens
was reelected as vice chair for
the TPO.
In accordance with the
TPO members' unanimous
vote on that date, Okaloosa
County Commissioner
Elaine Tucker will also con-
tinue as TPO chair.
TPO officers are elected
annually in June.
In addition to Cuchens,

GOLF CARTS are definitely not just for the golf course
any more. They are becoming more popular in the area for
travel within neighborhoods and for short distance trips.
They are even being offered as part of the package for pur-
chase of property in some developments. While transporta-
tion planners see promise for these and other short-distance
vehicles as an alternative to the automobile, it is uncertain
where they fit within the transportation system. Members of
the Okaloosa-Walton Transportation Planning Organization
plan more discussion on the role and future of these vehicles.


Springs City Councilman
Roy McLeod.
In other action, the mem-
bers endorsed an alternative
for a roadway bypass north
of and around Niceville. The
proposed bypass begins at
the Mid-Bay Bridge, runs
east of White Point Road,
continues north, turns west-
erly toward SR 285, contin-
ues west, ties into College
Boulevard at SR 285, and
continues along College Bou-


levard, ending at SR 285.
Since the proposed bypass
would cross Eglin Air Force
Base territory, the proposal
will be reviewed by the base
encroachment committee,
and any further progress on
it will depend on approval by
air force base officials.
The TPO will meet again at
3 p.m. onAug. 18 at Niceville
Community Center. These
meetings are open to public
participation.

An expansion proposal that
could bring jobs and other
economic benefits to Walton
County garnered the en-
dorsement of the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners on June 28.
District 1 Commission
Scott Brannon got a unani-
mous vote of support of his
plan to bring the proposal to
the Economic Development
Council of Walton County
(EDC) to ask for its coopera-
tion.
Brannon explained that
the Lewis Bear Distribution
Company, now located in De-
Funiak Springs, desires to
expand and modernize but is
limited due to space con-
straints at its current site.
This is a company with a $3.5
million annual payroll that
now employs over 70 people,
he noted.
In order to keep the busi-
ness within the county and
to help create jobs as com-
pany expansion takes place,
Brannon is proposing the do-
nation of a 20-acre parcel in
the Freeport Industrial Park


for the relocation of the com-
pany.
Brannon said he suggested
the industrial park site be-
cause it is in an area that
well suited to accommodate
the large trucks used by the
distribution company, unlike
many parts of the county.
"This will insure that an
existing, reputable company
stays in Walton County,"
Brannon explained.
Brannon said preliminary
plans call for the company to
build a 100,000-square-foot
structure on the 20-acre par-
cel, with room still left for
future expansion. In addi-
tion, plans include the con-
struction of a 200 to 250-seat
meeting room as part of the
structure, with that facility
being available for commu-
nity gatherings.

The EDC owns the Free-
port Industrial Park and pro-
vides economic incentives for
businesses to locate on sites
there. Brannon said he will
be contacting the EDC and
hopes he will be able to meet
soon with its members to dis-
cuss the land donation.


Redistricting Committees to take recommendations to boards


By BEN GRAFTON
On June 23, in a joint meet-
ing in the Freeport Commu-
nity Center, the Redistrict-
ing Committees for the Wal-
ton County Commission and
the School District, the deci-


sion was reached for each
committee to take the follow-
ing matters, as recommenda-
tions, back to their respec-
tive boards.
At the present time there
are some variations between


district boundaries for county
commissioners and school
board members. Although
the variations are not great,
they do cause occasional in-
convenience for residents
who live in the fringe areas.


The committees found that
the district lines can be stan-
dardized without material
impact on the number ofvot-
ers in each district and so will
recommend that the district
boundaries and numbers be
the same for each board.
The,commUittees alsofound'
that there is some shifting in'
the balance of voters in the


districts.
This is most obvious in
County Commission Dis-
tricts 1 and 5. However the
committees did not feel that
the shift is sufficient at this
time to justify redrawing the
districts boundaries for the
county. The committees will
recorhmerid that this shift be
monitored with, an eye to-


ward redrawing the district
lines in 2007, the next year
in which revisions can be
made.
Agenda dates for Commit-
tee presentations to the two
boards have not yet been
published but it is expected
that they wilb'ebcheduled' at
the first available oppdrtu-
nity. -... '- : aucs

Advisory board seeks help for dune lakes


By TIANA LARSEN
The Coastal Dune.Lakes
Advisory Board (CDLAB)
unanimously approved a
motion adopting a proposal
by the Choctawhatcee Basin
Alliance (CBA) outlining a
four-year action plan, for pro-
tection of the coastal dune
lakes.
Additionally, the motion is
to request funding from Wal-
ton County to implement the
first year of the plan, with the
funding to come from the
county general revenue fund
and/or recreational impact
fees. The CDLAB and CBA
will help look for additional
and future funding from
grants.
The board feels that there
is increasing pressure on the
15 rare and imperiled dune
lakes, and an action plan to
restore and preserve these
unique ecosystems is impor-
tant.
At the top of the list is iden-
tifying and involving stake-
holders, including the county,
lakeside property owners and
regulatory agencies, through
a series of public meetings.
In the first year of the pro-
gram, the plan is to hold
meetings for the individual
lakes and draft management
plans. Also, a pilot program
towards the goals of conser-
vation and restoration is
planned for implementation;


the initial program will focus
on invasive and exotic species
that are threatening the
lakes.
By the second year, the
hope is to finalize manage-
ment plans and begin imple-
menting projects, maximize
partnerships with agencies
such as the U.S. Fish & Wild-
life Service and the Univer-
sity of Florida, and to begin
documenting results.
Gathering scientific data,
such as the locations of wet-
lands, the true zone of influ-


ence of the watersheds
around the lakes, and water
quality will be a part of the
action plan.
CDLAB will be asking for
$150,000 for the first year of
the program to be included in
the new budget year. Board
member Lloyd Blue has sug-
gested that some money may
be available from the recre-
ational impact fees paid by
developers, and Philip Ellis,
CBA coastal dune lakes
monitoring coordinator, will
be writing grants.


SOUTH WALTON COUNTY HAS 15 coastal dune lakes.
They are ranked as globally impaired by the state, because
of their rarity and increasing pressures on their ecosystems.
A few of the lakes, such as Deer Lake, and Campbell and
Morrison Lakes, are contained within state parks, but most
are surrounded by private development. Often residents are
not aware of the special lake ecology; education will be a
coniponent of a new action plan to conserve and restore the
lakes.

Water Saving


Tips


IWhen adjusting water temperatures,
instead of turning water flow up, try turning

it down. If the water is too hot or cold, turn

the offender down rather than increasing

water flow to balance the temperature.

I I
SIf the toilet flush handle frequently sticks

in the flush position, letting water run

constantly, replace or adjust it.
E'
i-
SConsider using a commercial car wash

that recycles water. If you wash your own car,

park on the grass to do so.


Create an awareness of the need for water

conservation among children. Avoid the

purchase of recreational water toys that
require a constant stream of water.


SBe aware of and follow all water-conservation

r and water shortage rules and restrictions.

County wants citizens to prepare for storms


By TIANA LARSEN

"You must be prepared to
live on your own for several
days," emphasized Bruce
Ward, county extension
agent with the University of
Florida Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences (IFAS.)
IFAS is a federal-state-
county partnership through-
out Florida, dedicated to im-
proving lives by developing
and providing knowledge in
agriculture, natural re-
sources, and life sciences.
Several representatives
from IFAS, Walton County
Public Information, Walton
County Emergency Opera-
tions (EOC) and State Rep-


resentative Don Brown spoke
to concerned citizens at a
hurricane preparedness
seminar.
Brown urged citizens to
closely examine their insur-
ance situation in advance of
hurricane season, because
once a storm threatens, cov-
erage usually cannot be
changed.
The two biggest problems
that arose from last year's
four hurricanes that struck
Florida were coverage limits
and deductibles.
Brown explained the differ-
ence between replacement
and actual cost of damaged
property. If your policy speci-
fies actual cost, the amount


paid will generally be re-
duced by depreciation and
will not be adequate to re-
place lost property. On the
other hand, replacement cost
pays what the name implies,
an amount to replace what
has been lost, within the
policy limits.
The policy limits are also
important, Brown said, since
values change frequently and
construction and materials
cost may rise after a storm,
due to demand.
Many policies today in-
clude actual cost on the con-
tents of a home, and Brown
recommended that replace-
ment cost coverage be ob-
tained for contents. Your ten-

ship with the Executive Director Julie Hurst and the Emer-
ald Coast Children's Advocacy Center and to introduce this
new monthly feature aimed at educating parents on how to
reduce the chances of their child becoming a victim of child
abuse.


The Child Advocate
By Julie Hurst,
executive director,
Emerald Coast Children's Advocacy Center

First let me begin by thanking editor Ron Kelley for al-
lowing the Emerald Coast Children's Advocacy Center an
opportunity to share children issues with his readers. I hope
that in the months to come we and our partner agencies can
share valuable information to help improve the quality of
life for children and their parents whatever the issue might
be from pool safety tbiInternet safety to parenting tips and
more.
Just last week I returned from the National Children's
Alliance Leadership Conference. More than 300 executive
directors and board presidents come together to discuss and
learn about impending issues facing the children of our coun-
try. We network and discuss ways to overcome the challenges
to make this world a better place for them. During one of
the plenary sessions, Congress Ted Poe from Texas, spoke
to us about Jessica Lunsford. As he described the horror
and trauma Jessica 'exerienced at the hands of predator,
being buried alive, and, finally her death, tears came to my
eyes. Congress is making efforts to pass new legislation to
address federal registration of sexual predators.
Since the plenary, I have felt incredible sadness for Jes-
sica and her family. I have decided to use my sadness to
continue to strive to make a difference for children in our
community and abroad.
This column provides a mechanism to do just that. We
would like to share spme information about Internet safety.
for children going bn-Iine.With approximately 73 million
children in the USA, 65 percent of American children use
the Internet from home, school, or other sites. Computers
appeal to child offenders. It's an easy way to gain access to
children. Just look at the number of children on line.
Here are some rules,to help keep your child safe con-
sider keeping the computer with Internet access in a com-
mon area of the house (not a child's bedroom); establish rules
for your child's Internet use what sites they visit, who they
talk to online, and how long they are online. Discuss the
importance of telling an adult if something makes your child
feel uncomfortable while Online. Know your child's online
friends don't list your child's e-mail address in any direc-
tory; know how to set parental controls and check history
files. Haveyour child choose a screen name that doesn't iden-
tify them as a young boy or girl and make sure they don't
share their password with anyone except a parent, not even
their best friend. Teach them to not respond to mean, offen-
sive, threatening or unwanted e-mail or instant messages
and never give out personal information, such as their
parent's name, address, phone number, school, their age, or
their real name.
Remember that people online may or may not be who they
say they are and never depend solely on technology to pro-
tect your child.
If you are reading this and have a child who uses the In-
ternet, please take a moment and read this to your child.
Remember, it might make that difference. If you have any
questions, please contact the Children's Advocacy Center at
833-9237, ext. 223.

tual cost method, he ex-
plained.
SBrown also cautioned the
audience that floods are com-
monly not covered under
homeowner's policies; a sepa-
rate flood insurance policy is
needed for coverage against
rising waters.
Most important steps to
take, Brown said, are to shop
around, consider the deduct-
ible (hurricane deductibles
were raised after Andrew -
last year many people were
shocked to discover their
deductibles were larger than
they thought,) be sure to
evaluate the current cost of
replacing lost property, make
homes more wind resistant,
check your credit score,
which can affect your insur-
ance score, review your poli-
cies at least once a year, and
be prepared to produce an
inventory of your contents if
they are lost.
Connie Laws of the exten-
sion office also discussed
ways to take an inventory
before a storm, how to safe-
guard important papers, and
food safety.
George Rogers, an exten-
sion agent in Pensacola, dis-
cussed ways to make homes
more wind resistant, and the
EOC explained evacuation
routes out of the county.
A wealth of information on
these and other topics related
to hurricane preparation are
available from IFAS in DeFu-
niak Springs, or from Walton

Seaside Repertory Theatre



stages fish story for small fry


By BRUCE COLLIER
Monday nights at Seaside
are the scene of controlled
pandemonium, with crowds
of children and adults watch-
ing, and participating in,The
Fisherman and His Wife.
Seaside Repertory Theatre
is offering its own spin on
this classic Grimm Brothers
fairy tale, which teaches a
simple moral: Don't Be
Greedy.
Fisherman is adapted
from the fairy tale by Larry
and Vivian Snipes, and is di-
rected by Rosemary Newcott.
The play tells the story of
a poor but honest fisherman
and his discontented spouse,
who live in a hut near the
sea.
When the fisherman man-
ages to hook an enchanted
flounder, he releases it. His
wife insists he ask the fish for
a new cottage.
The fish obliges, which
leads the wife to ask next for
a castle, then a kingdom,
then the papacy, then om-
nipotent universal power.
How she, the fisherman,
and the fish deal with all this
is the stuff on an hour's en-
tertainment.


By BRUCE COLLIER

Some 15 people attended
an informational meeting,
held last Sunday at Okaloosa
Walton College's Sprint The-
atre. The purpose of the
meeting was to discuss the
founding of a "Shakespeare
Performance Group," operat-
ing out of the college and
touring the area.
The hour-long meeting
was chaired by OWC theatre
instructor and designer Clint
Mahle. Mahle began by ask-
ing everyone to fill out a writ-
ten questionnaire detailing
their theatrical experience,
any Shakespearean experi-
ence, and other information.
Mahle spoke briefly, dis-
cussing both short and long-
term plans to found and sus-
tain a company of actors and
performers. Mahle hopes


The play is performed out-
doors at the Seaside
amphitheatre. Admission is
free, and patrons are encour-
aged to bring lawn chairs,
blankets, and refreshments.

Joe Starr plays the fish,
and also acts as Master Sto-
ryteller. Starr sets the
scenes, works the crowd, and
oversees the set-changing ef-
forts of the Storyteller in
Training (S.T.I.T.), cheerfully
played by Seaside apprentice
Melody Ruano.
Starr is afine comedian,
and veteran of several Sea-
side productions. He does a
good job teaching the kids
how to create various "special
effects."
Audience members are
asked to help create waves,
wind, crickets, farm animals,
an army of drummers, and a
contingent of Vatican atten-
dants.
Starr also plays the fish,
part punk, part street hus-
tler, part guidance counselor.
Mike Funt works his Ed
Wynn vocal mojo as the fish-
erman, dressed like the guy
on the fish sticks box. Funt
dances, sings, and rolls

that the group would operate
along the lines of those in
Shakespeare's own time.
"Ideally," he said, "every-
one could do a little of every-
thing. Act in large and small
roles, build sets, work back-
stage. That's how they did it
in Elizabethan times."
Mahle has outlined a five
year plan, but intends to
start with a single produc-
tioh.
In spring of 2006, the com-
pany will perform The Merry
Wives of Windsor, a farcical
comedy featuring one of
Shakespeare's most famous
characters, Sir John Falstaff.
Mahle plans to hold audi-
tions at the end of July. In the
fall, he plans to hold acting
classes/rehearsals once a
week, and get the play ready
to be performed not only at
OWC, but as a touring show.

around the beach, blown by
a storm that gets worse as his
wife's demands get more out-
rageous.
Seaside Rep actress/man-
aging director Jennifer
Steele has a field day as the
wife. She grandly progresses
from humble spouse, to lady
of the manor, to monarch,
and to pontiff. Her voice and
manner (and costumes, by
Musetta Jersen) grow more
arid more ridiculously impe-
rious with every wish


granted.
After a happy ending, the
cast invited the audience
onstage for photos and con-
versation. There was no lack
of takers for both.
The Fisherman and His
Wife will continue to run on
Monday nights, except this
holiday weekend, when it
will run on Sunday, July 3,
through August 8. All perfor-
mances are at 8 p.m.

both attacks were completely
different.
In the meantime, Walton
County officials have' de-
cided not to close the beaches.
South Walton Tourist Devel-
opment Council Executive
Director Kriss Titus said that
here has been little or no ef-
fect on the upcoming holiday
weekend.
Walton County Sheriff's
Department's Capt. Danny


Glidewell said that, while
there will not be lifeguards
on the beaches, there will be
an increased presence of
deputies, fire department
personnel, and beach patrol
officers on duty.
There are currently no life-
guards on any of the 26 miles
of Walton County beaches.
Plans for lifeguards have
been discussed, but various
issues, including the fact that
only seven of the 26 beach


miles have public access,
have been a complication.
Ritter, Titus, Glidewell, and
South Walton Fire District
Chief Les Hallman all
stressed education as "the
first line of defense" in beach
safety.
"People have to remember,"
said Hallman, "that when
you get out past a certain
point, you're in a completely
natural gulf environment."
Beach visitors are advised


CLINT MAHLE (CENTER) AND INTERESTED ACTORS
discuss Shakespeare Performance Group at OWC.


"The set will be movable,
and modeled. on the kind of
stage we think Shakespeare
might have used in his day,"
said Mahle.
In addition to performing
and touring plays, Mahle
hopes the group will be able


to teach acting, stage combat,
and other aspects of the craft
in area schools.
Persons who missed the
meeting, and want more in-
formation, should call Mahle
