Paxton


debates

joint EMS
By KERRY STEWART
Walton County officials
met with Paxton's council to
discuss the feasibility of a
county maintained fire de-
partment. Those in atten-
dance included the full coun-
cil, members of the Paxton
Volunteer Fire Department
(VFD), Walton County Com-
missioner Kenneth Pridgen,
Walton County Emergency
Response Division Director
Ed Baltzley and Walton
County Fire Manager Eddie
Rivers. Town council mem-
bers are Bobby Kemp,
Tommy Mathis, Ann Sexton,
Jenice Armstrong, Joe
Melton and Mayor Wanda
Thomas-Smith.
Rivers addressed council
members explaining that the
Walton County Commission-
ers had adopted a six-year
plan for the county that could
incorporate Paxton's volun-
teer fire department, as well
as other independent fire dis-
tricts, under one umbrella.
The ultimate goal would be
for all fire districts north of
the bay to be managed by the
county. The plan encom-
passes a strong combination
of both career and volunteer
fire and rescue systems and
personnel. According to Riv-
ers, the biggest benefits of
working under this concept
would be that it is more cost
effective to run one depart-
ment than several, cheaper
insurance rates and stan-
dardized services within the
county.
The floor was open for dis-
cussion between those in at-
tendance at the meeting.
Councilman Tommy Mathis,
who is also the fire chief for
Paxton's volunteer fire de-
partment (PVFD), noted that
he was in favor of the six-
year plan under consider-
ation but wanted to ensure
that if the plan went forward,
that the local government
would continue to have con-
trol and input in to the de-
partment. In response,,Riv-
ers stressed that the plan
was to be a partnership. Ba-
sically, the county would be
the manager of the town's
needs. Each town under the
umbrella would have to iden-
tify their individual needs
and report them to the
county.

Baltzley pointed out that
the county wold not and
could not come in and:hire
five to six paid employees for
the PVFD but would con-
tinue working with the cur-
rent volunteers. It would not
be economically possible for
the county to hire all new
firefighters. The design of
the plan would center on the
existing volunteers. It would
be a joint partnership be-
tween the fire districts and
the county working toward
more efficient services. '
Mathis pointed out that
there was a manpower short-
age during the day when vol-

PRICES IN THE WALTON COUNTYAREA rose from 11 ot 20 cents a gallon.




Gasoline: shortage



or price gouging?


By Patrick Casey
Hurricane Dennis re-
minded the Florida Pan-
handle how precious a com-
modity that gasoline is to
survival and mobility in our
everyday lives. After Hurri-
cane Ivan left massive power
outages in the area in Sep-
tember 2004, gasoline was of
utmost importance to run
home generators for thou-
sands of homes and busi-
nesses for several weeks
while repairs to the area
power grid were made. The
lasting impression from Ivan
led people to stock up on all
the gasoline they could find
in case Dennis left the area
in similar straits.
Gasoline supplies began to
dwindle on the Thursday be-
fore Dennis Sunday arrival
as evacuees and residents
rushed to area pumps to
stockpile the precious liquid.
By Friday, stations in the
area were seeing their inven-
tories drained to extremely
low levels. Saturdaybrought
on another surge in sales as
the storm neared and many
stations went dry as the de-
mand was far heavier than
the ability to supply area sta-
tions.
Stations were going
through as much as 90,000
gallons of gas in just two
days, double to triple the nor-
mal average in the Pan-
handle. Long lines at the
pumps also made it difficult
for gasoline delivery trucks
to get to the tanks they
needed to supply at various
stores. Some motorists did
not want to move their ve-
hicles to let the delivery
trucks by in, fear of losing
their place in line. Other
trucks were blockaded in as
the lines deepened. Isolated*
arguments and incidents
were reported throughout
the area as the stress of the
approaching storm caused
tensions to rise and tempers
to flare. Complicating mat-
ters was the fact that many
local gas terminals ran out of
fuel before the arrival of Den-
nis.
On the Tuesday before the
storm, the supply'was short
and the demand extremely


high. Oil companies in-
creased supplies to the state
by seven percent in the ad-
vance .of hurricane season,
but that quickly evaporated
as Hurricane .Dennis
brushed by the Florida Keys
before heading to the Pan-
handle.
Florida already consumes
24-million gallons of fuel a
day. Florida has no refiner-
ies of its own and its 17 mil-
lion residents are almost en-
tirely dependent, of fuel from
somewhere else. Drilling rigs
in the Gulf are usually forced
to shut down as each storm
passes, further slowing sup-
ply.
Supplies in the area rely on
barges bringing in gasoline
by sea to various ports along
the Gulf Coast. The arrival
of Dennis forced the closure
of the Intercoastal Waterway
to barge traffic for four days,
further limiting the efforts to
supply the area. Tropical
Storm Cindy had also moved
through the area the previ-
ous week, forcing the closing
of many offshore oil rigs as
well as a shift in barge traf-
fic up the Mississippi River
to ride out that storm. Flood-
ing can cause rivers to rise
and keep barges from mak-
ing their way back down area
waterways until the flooding
subsides.
It will likely be sometime
this week before the Citgo
Petroleum terminal in
Niceville gets a new ship-


ment of fuel. Citgo owns a
fueling facility in Lake
Charles, which is the closest
company-owned fueling stop
to Northwest Florida. Citgos
fuel trucks have had to travel
to Pensacola, Panama City,
and Mobile to get gas.
Gas prices were also a hot
topic as Hurricane Dennis
approached. Many consum-
ers complained of price goug-
ing as gas prices rose signifi-
ican.tl;, ii the area. Prices in
the Walton County area rose
from 11 to 20 cents a gallon
as the storm approached. The
raising.of prices seemed sus-
picious on the surface, but
corporate offices of many of
the largest oil companies had
already announced a 13-cent
increase on the national level
on July 6.
Donna Steverson, an em-
ployee of Curt Miller Oil in
Bonifay, said the 13-cent shift
was one of the largest she
had seen handed down in her
years of dealing with the oil
conglomerates. "A day after
the price shift, we couldn't
even buy the product for the
price some stations were cur-
rently selling it at retail for.
Gas prices change daily and
retailers have to adjust
prices with each delivery,"
she said. *
.Florida also passed a stat-
ute in 1985 known as the
Motor,Fuel Marketing Prac-
tices Act that prohibits be-


see GASOLINE 11A


MANY STATIONS ran dry on Saturday before Dennis
struck and some still do not have fuel.


Ministry presses


council for use of


city center


By BEN GRAFTON
At the regular Freeport
Council meeting of July 12,
John Fogarty, who intro-
duced himself at the June 23
council meeting as recently
arrived in Freeport to start
a new ministry, apologized
for his attitude at that meet-
ing and then made a lengthy
unscheduled presentation to
the council concerning his
previously denied request fbr
use of the Freeport Commu-
nity Center for religious ser-
vices.
Fogarty read from a letter
he said came from a Chris-
tian law council, which said
that the city made a mistake
and must provide equal use
of the community center by
renting the facility to the
faith-based ministry. Fogarty
argued that precedent has
already been set by 'other
communities in the area that
have allowed ministries to
use their public facilities.
Since the presentation was
unscheduled,' the council
took the matter under ad-
visement, but took no further
action.

In regular business:
Latilda Henninger, Free-
port City Planner, reported
that one of the members of
the city planning board had
missed three consecutive
board meetings and should
be replaced. City attorney
Clayton Adkinson com-
mented that given the prepa-
ration undertaken by pre-
senters at the meetings, the
failure to have a quorum nec-
essary to conduct business
was embarrassing to the city.
Henninger went on to ask
the council to replace this
board member and to estab-
lish a pool of potential board
members so that vacancies
could be filled promptly, The
council scehduled a special
meeting for July 13 to deal
with the issue.
Paul Miller of the West
Florida Planning Council
presented the second reading
of proposed ordinances deal-
ing with three small scale
amendments to the compre-
hensive plan with re- zoning
to high density residential
for the properties which be-
long to divisions of the Ham-
mock
Bay development south of
SR 20.
The developer has agreed
that no more than ten resi-
dential units per acre will be
constructed on this land. The
council approved the ordi-


nances.
Henninger presented the
second reading of an ordi-
nance that allows issuing let-
ters of exception for owner
occupied homes on properties
that;have been annexed into
the city but which do not
comply with zoning regula-
tions. The letters would au-
thorize repair of extensive
storm damage to the proper-
ties. The council approved
the ordinance.
This was followed by the
first reading of a proposed or-
dinance for the annexation of
property owned by Bob Tullis
as low density residential.
The council approved the
Reading and advertising for
the second reading.
After hearing that the con-
struction plan had been ap-
proved and all impact fees
paid, the council accepted
the subdivision plat for thirty
six lots on 5.98 acres owned
by Freeport 7 LLC.
Miller gave a preliminary
briefing to the council on
Senate Bill 360 which deals
with growth management is-
sues. Among the provisions:
Infrastructure must be in
place within three years of
subdivision development ap-
proval. Developers can pay
for required infrastructure
up front.
School districts must agree
that classrooms will be avail-
able for students from a new
subdivision before the devel-
opment can be approved. Re-
quirements for comprehen-
sive plan amendments will
be more flexible and stream-
lined.
The council approved
charging home owners a $7
per month maintenance fee
'for installed residential sew-
age pumps.
City Engineer Charles Pe-
ters reported "exceptional
progress" on construction of
the new .sewage treating
plant. Training for the tran-
sition from the old to the new
plant is being initiated.
Peters said that 62 percent
of the piping, including all six
inch sewer mains, for the
Bay Loop project have been
installed.
Mayor Mickey Marse re-
ported that although the
Choctaw Beach and Villa
Tasso communities lost
power during Hurricane
Dennis, the back- up power
system for the North Bay
Water System activated
.properly and users enjoyed
uninterrupted water service
throughout the storm.


Marse reelected

as Freeport mayor

By BEN GRAFTON

With approximately 40 percent of Free-
port voters going to the polls on July 19,
incumbent Mayor Mickey Marse was re-
elected to his eighth consecutive term by a
margin of almost two to one.
Marse said that he sincerely appreciated
the support shown to him by the commu-
nity.
Marse received 216 votes to challenger
Janice McLean's 112 votes.
The result has been certified by mem-
bers of the City Council sitting as the Free-
port Election Canvassing Board.

School

board


prepares

for new I:

term
By PATRICK CASEY


The Walton County School
Board met on Tuesday, July
12, to discuss an agenda that
included various items lead-
ing up to the start of the
2005-06 school year.
Board members gave blan-
ket approval of trips for Wal-
ton Middle School's football
schedule as well as South
Walton's varsity football and
volleyball schedules for the
upcoming season.
Student handbooks were
approved for Walton Middle
School and South Walton
High School.
Board members Bill Laird
and Donnie Richardson were
chosen to serve on the Wal-
ton County Value Adjust-
ment Board. Hearing of the
Value Adjustment Board are
scheduled to be held on Oc-
tober 3-4 at the South Wal-
ton Courthouse Annex Court-
room.
The next regular meeting
of the Walton County School
Board will be on Monday,
August 1, at 6 p.m. at' the
Tivoli Administrative Com-
plex.


Springs and another in south
Walton, WCHD is respon-
sible for environmental care
as well as health care, so ser-
vices range from family plan-
ning clinics to gathering and
testing water samples. After
initial assessment, the
health department informs
and educates the community
and leads the charge to re-
solve the issue. In a proactive
approach to wellness, the
health department also de-
velops and supports commu-
nity health efforts and en-
forces laws protecting health
and safety.
WCHD currently has a
staff of 51 and an operating
budget of $3.1 million dol-
lars, both will likely rise as
population increases.
While Jones is new to his


position here, he has a
wealth of experience in the
field of public health, begin-
ning in 1977 as a graduate of
the University of North Caro-
lina where he received a
master's degree in public
health. He has since worked
25 years with the state of
North Carolina's Depart-
ment of Health and Human
Services, during which time,
he managed and adminis-
tered budgets of as much as
40 million dollars and super-
vised a staff of 300 across the
state.

In 1998, he joined the
Stanly County Health De-
partment and served as di-
rector there until he left to
come to Walton County ear-
lier this year. "My wife is now
administrator of Santa Rosa
County's health depart-
ment," said Jones, "and I am
here, so it has worked out
very well for both of us."


As a North Carolina native
who had, until now, never
lived or worked outside the
state, Jones is enjoying his
migration south and finds
Walton County friendly and
inviting. "This is just a great
little town," he said, "I have
met a couple of the commis-
sioners and look forward to
meeting everyone else. I re-
cently visited the local li-
brary and really enjoyed that
too."
Immediate plans for the
health department include
the addition of Dr. Dianne
Hudson who will help rein-
state a primary care program
at WCHD. This program will
provide general medical as-
sistance and referrals to citi-
zens with fees based on a
sliding scale relative to in-
come. "I have not had time to
evaluate everything yet, but
primary care may well be one
of our top priorities," said
Jones.

DFS may receive Disaster Recovery Center

Within a week of Hurricane Dennis, almost all residents
of the Panhandle who had moved into emergency shelters
now find themselves settled into their own housing as fed-
eral, state and voluntary agencies work to quickly release
funds for housing assistance.
As of Monday ten DRCs were open in Escambia,
Franklin, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Wakulla and Walton
counties. An additional DRC is pending for DeFuniak
Springs, Walton County.
Individuals and business owners who suffered damage
due to Hurricane Dennis may still register by calling 1-
800-621-FEMA (3362) or register on-line at www.fema.gov.
For the hearing and speech impaired, the TTY number is
1-800-462-7585. Phone lines are open 24 hours a day,
seven days a week.
At present, eight counties have been designated as eli-
gible for Individual Assistance, releasing funds to
homeowners and renters for repairs, temporary housing
and other needs. In addition, the U.S. Small Business
Administration offers low-interest loans for businesses,
homeowners and renters. The eight counties are Bay, Es-
cambia, Franklin, Gulf, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Wakulla,
and Walton.
A Public Assistance declaration was issued for 13 coun-
ties, freeing funds for certain eligible costs related to de-
bris removal and emergency services. The 13 counties
are Bay, Calhoun, Escambia, Franklin, Gulf, Holmes, Jack-
son, Monroe, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Wakulla, Walton, and
Washington.

Q If a person
were to post bail for a friend
in jail, would that person get
his/her money back?
A: As a matter of
fact, it is possible that he/she
wouldn't. New legislation was
passed in Florida that went into
effect July 1, 2005, which
transfers the responsibility of
handling cash bail bonds from
the courts to the Clerk of Court:
It requires the Clerk of Court
to apply monies posted as Cash


Bond toward the payment of
court fees, court costs and
criminal penalties prior to re-
turning the balance, if any, of
the cash bond to the depositor.
(Section 57, Section 903.286,
Florida Statutes) The Clerk of
Court began complying with
this statutory requirement on
July 1, 2005, in all criminal
cases. So, if you- want your
money back, it would be wise
to make sure your acquain-
tance has the means and inten-
tion to pay you back!

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


PERSONAL COMMENTS


Editor's Comment


The beaches of my youth

By RONKELLEY
On occasion, readers will ask me how I decide what to
write about and many friends offer ideas and suggestions.
The truth is I'm currently backed up on editorial ideas
and, until Monday, I had planned to write about something
else.
But on Monday, Walton CountyAdministrator Ronnie Bell
and I took a tour of the beaches of south Walton and, since
then, I haven't been able to get those images out of my mind.
Ronnie and I grew up in Walton County and, although
he's several years younger than I, we both remember the
beaches of south Walton as they once were so blindingly
white that it hurt your eyes to look at it; towering dunes
that were three and four stories high, stands of sea oats,
vegetation and scrub oaks as far as the eye could see.
There were a few cinder-block weekend houses and some
bleached-out, frame homes with screened-in porches sur-
rounded by sand and shell roads. There probably weren't
two dozen year-round residents then. There were no snazzy
restaurants, outlet stores, resort condominiums or golf
courses. There was Butler's store in Grayton Beach and a
gas station or two on U.S. 98.
The beaches of south Walton were still Florida's best-kept
secret then. There were no crowds. You might have to walk
a quarter of a mile just to find someone else on the beach.



Editor,
I would like to thank the Walton County Road Crew, Dis-
trict 3 for a job well done on Oakwood Lakes Boulevard.
One of my concerns while they were working was the driv-
ers who would not slow down, putting workers in jeopardy.
These men are here working for us to make our roads safer
and better.
As a small community, we should remember to support
and respect one another.

Dallas R. Gilley

Editor:
Regarding letter sent to Walton County commissioners
Hello! Beyond the hysteria of the beach front dune hold-
ers, how about some logical thought! First; The turtles are
not gone! In fact, the storm had no effect on sea life lower
' than one half of a wave length!
The reality is that the oceanrwould be fine right now. if it
. was not for the fecal matter of septic systems that were-
allowed to be placed, and the hundreds of tons of wood
from overbuilt dune w'alkovers that were allowed to be
built! Yes, some housing material, that would not have
been lost, had this been managed properly.
Beach scraping does not work! It prevents the beach from
growing, which is why Arlene damaged the dune! You can-
not build a dune by beach scraping! Think about it! Also
lawsuits in California have been won because you have no
right to take public property and push it onto private prop-
erty.
Also beach scraping eliminates the beach itself.! Where
will your tourists place their beach chairs? The only solu-
tion to this dilemma is beach renourishment! With a longer
beach, the dune is better protected. You only need to look
as far as Panama City Beach!
I know that this letter does not agree with the shouted
Hysteria of your last meeting, but the facts are there. The.
county will probably miss-spend public money, on a fool-
ish effort to stop sand from shifting as it is known to do,
and destroy public property in the process. The mess
that will be made of it will be a violation of the public
trust. It should be known that most of the people out here
feel this way, but they are not screaming in your face.

I can remember playing in the dunes and in the emerald-
colored surf. I remember the worst sunburn I ever had and
a graduation night party that's best kept to myself.
I speak in fond remembrance, but time marches on and
progress comes, inexorably changing the landscape. Al-
though I was a bit saddened by the loss of the beach I once
knew, at least it hadn't degenerated into one of those tacky
beachside carnival communities that exist in other places.
So you can imagine my shock Monday when I looked at
what had become of the beaches of my youth. What was left
of the shoreline was devastated, the white sand simply gone,
replaced by thick dark mud, kelp, seaweed and peat. Deep
tire tracks covered a beach that once knew only footprints.
Shattered houses were hanging off the edges of sharp cliffs
that had not existed a few days before. Septic tanks lay com-
pletely exposed and debris was everywhere.
I cannot describe the sadness I felt and still feel. It is my
hope that some miracle can be performed that will restore
the beach to its former glory. I talked to Commissioner Cindy
Meadows, who cheered me by reminding me that new tech-
nologies exist that can and have already restored damaged
beaches in other places. She reminded me of the indomi-
table human spirit that we Americans possess and assured
me that we shall overcome; that this, too, will pass.
I have decided that I'm going to hold onto that thought for
a while. I'm just going to sit here and close my eyes and
remember the crisp blue skies, the roar of the richly-hued
blue-green Gulf and the bright, sugar-white sand. Iwill re-
member a golden, peaceful, perfect day when I once stood
on the shore of the world's most beautiful beach and I will
dream of the day that I can return.



Editor,
Accolades to Choctawhatchee Electric Cooperative!
When Hurricane "Dennis" disrupted electrical power in
the Pine Shores Subdivision at around 1 p.m. on Sunday,,
we resigned ourselves to an indefinite period of life without
the advantages and comforts of modern technology. How-
ever, several hours later, with the wind still gusting mightly
and with rain falling, sometimes torrentially, we witnessed
two CHELCO trucks and a group of workers at a nearby
junction box laboring to repair a problem.
Six hours after the initial failure, service was restored,
thanks to these people who worked under such trying con-
ditions. Thank you, CHELCO. You render an outstanding
service to your customers. You deserve our appreciation, our
praise and our admiration.

Editor:
The Panhandle region suffered three sharks aacks re'li
cently, two by sea and one by the lawyeitfor the OWCl It
may not be safe to wade into traffic- a-log the roadW~is fob?
awhile until our local governments, faster than a condo ap-
proval when responding to a breach in public safety, rush in
emergency crews to set up lifeguards on the Kelly Planta-
tion. On the other hand, installing a lifeguard chair would
violate private property rights.
The lawyers took a big bite out of higher education. At
$10,000 a month for legal fees for more than a year, the
College instead could have given a student a rent scholar-
ship for affordable housing. And you've gotta love the OWC
calling upon their legal department before meeting with the
Daily News. Characteristic of their estate dealings, I guess
the OWC, the idealistic scholars that they are, wanted to
make sure that they weren't going to break the law with
overzealous truthfulness and honesty while talking to the
third estate. There's money well spent.
President "Bob" Richburg did allow as how the institu-
tion of higher learning got good bang for its buck. Maybe
someone on the legal team is going to teach in the class-
room. Machiavelli 101: Lie to a benefactor; take their money;
use the interest on the money to vanquish the rightful heirs;
violate the bequest; surround the dead benefactor with a
housing estate. Professor Inheritus. Sure to attract future
benefactors.
If the OWC has a business school, they could have told
"Bob" and his gang that nowadays getting $8.1 million for
a, say roughly $50 million or so, piece of property in this
area isn't going to make them Donald Trump's next appren-
tice, and they would have been wiser to cave on the law
suit, save the legal fees, and then turn around and sell the
Kelly estate to someone else for something near what it's
worth. Don't worry, guys, after Donald Trump there's al-
ways a seat on the Destin City Council. The word on the
street is that at least one of the OWC officials does have a
feel for this area, as demonstrated in his hiring interview
during that awkward moment when the interviewers ask,
"Now sir, do you have any questions for us?" "Yes, will Eg-
lin allow higher education to go higher than 200 feet?" Now
that's leadership.
Sarcasm aside, the OWC "leadership" have damaged
higher education and done the area a disservice. Scholar-
ships and learning are lofty and attainable ideals. A college
is a bastion wherein the mind is elevated to consider the
human experience, distill from it guiding, nurturing and
sustaining principles, and, for some, inculcate an abiding
perseverance to apply those principles as best possible upon
entering or re-entering the world of daily affairs, to show
true leadership. The OWC "leadership" have desecrated that
ideal, and they have done it brazenly, publicly and disgrace-
fully. They have used the prospect for a specialized learn-
ing, envisioned by the informed mind of an altruistic bene-
factor, as a mere pawn in their game to get money. And for
what? For a center whose teaching is condemned to less
than the message the taint of its founding will carry into
perpetuity.
The damage is not limited to the college and education,
the plantation, and the Kelly heirs, but harms the entire
area. We who live here are not stupid. Some of us have taken
our education seriously, and the more the OWC "leadership"
protest and act out their rightfulness, the more obvious it
becomes what they have cost us. They have laid low an in-
stitution of higher learning in an area that desperately


needed a counter example to institutionalized greed, and
instead of letting the potential of their public trust help lead
us out of local corruption, they have enmired us further in
it.
And to those who matriculate at the OWC, welcome to
the wild west, the NWF. Welcome to Deadwood.

PAXTON F]
unteers were typically work-
ing other paid jobs and that
the county could help fill this
void. One of the goals of the
six-year plan would be to
keep all current full-time
employees during and after
the transition to a fire- based
emergency management sys-
tem (EMS). The current plan
would have the PVFD up to
six additional personnel by
the end of 2011, with three
members being hired in the
next fiscal year and an addi-
tional three by the year 2008.
The plan incorporates a
team effort whereby a paid
employee could be present at
all times (24/7) working with
the volunteers. The county
would also begin a strong
volunteer recruitment effort
throughout the area. Addi-
tional efforts would include
cross training between the
fire departments and the res-
cue squad. The county al-
ready manages the rescue
squad and this would be
same type of plan.
Mathis questioned if there
could be a temporary or trial
arrangement between the
town and the county for a
period of approximately five
years. Pridgen addressed
Mathis' concerns, explaining
the financial investment that
the county would be making
within the department. The
county will provide training
for a long-term commitment
from paid and volunteer
firefighters. The hiring and
training of personnel wiill be
on-going throughout the six-
years in order for existing
and new staff to receive stan-
dardized training within the
department. Cross training
between the PVFD and the
rescue squad will also be a
long-term project. The county
will plan funding resources
for the purchase of a new fire
truck and to repair some ex-
isting equipment.
They will be looking in to
resources for building a new
fire department within the
next fiscal year's funding
cycle. Once the county has
made these investments,
then the town will not be able
to just pull out of the agree-
ment. If approved, this
would be a contractual agree-
ment between the town and
the county.
The six-year plan calls for
countywide impact fees to be
instituted for capital im-
provements that are related
to growth. The county fees
currently under consider-
ation for fiscal year 2005 -
2006 would be '$200. per
single-family house and 40
cents per square foot for com-
mercial property. The six-
year plan projects that in
2007, the planning process
for a new station, site selec-
tion arid design would begin.
Paxton will be asked to set
aside land for the future fire
station. The designated land
for a fire station will elimi-
nate'any cost for land acqui-
sition.
Melton wanted to know if
the county would still provide
financial assistance to the
Paxton VFD if they did not
support the six-year plan.
Pridgen explained that at
this point he really could not
answer that question but
that he considered this con-
cept a partnership. Future
funding outside of the pro-
posed six-year plan would be
based on availability. The
plan would be to set the stan-
dards for the county now,
prior to the growth that is
coming to the area.
Rivers explained to the au-
dience that every resident in
the county deserved the same
standard of service. People
in the south end of the county
should receive the same qual-
ity of service as those in the
north end and around the
county. This plan would pro-
vide for uniformity and stan-
dardization of services


throughout the county.
Mathis used the Walton
County Rescue Squad as an
example of what the fire de-
partment could be like. The
town's rescue squad merged
with the county in 1986 and
is now considered one of the
best squads in the state.
With time, the fire depart-
ment could mirror the rescue
squad and provide cross
training- for volunteers and
staff members within the two
agencies.


ROM FRONT
Melton's concern regarding
a younger firefighter's nor-
mal eight- hour working day
and having to complete 180
hours of firefighting training
after work was addressed by
Rivers. The 180 hours of
training is a mandatory re-
quirement for all firefighter
positions. The county has
been researching several op-
tions to help alleviate some
of the burden on the indi-
vidual. One option that they
are looking in to would be on-
line computer training with
the state that could be com-
pleted based on the
volunteer's schedule.
Kemp questioned if the in-
surance premiums would re-
duce if Paxton had paid
members of the fire depart-
ment. Currently the town's
fire rating is a seven. Rivers
explained that in two or three
years, after things are more
in place with the plan, then
the ISO can be invited to re-
evaluate the system and po-
tentially reduce the ISO rat-
ing ard thereby reduce pre-
miums. Paid employees will
help to reduce the premiums
but the current work being
done to improve the water
system will also be a tremen-
dous help.
Another effort to reduce
the ISO rating would be the
purchase of two tankers that
will hold 2,000 3,000 gallons
of water. These tankers will
be strategically placed in the
county to support the areas
w without hydrants and com-
pliant the water plan., This
will also aid the Walton
County Fire Rescue in reduc-
ing the ISO rating for fire
protection.
River noted that a total of
fifteen paid .employees had
been added to the budget for
next year. It's the county's
desire to hire the first group
of firefighters in October or
November and the second
phase of hiring should be
completed in January 2006.
PVFD would be targeted for
three positions if an inter-
agency agreement w"re
reached between the'ow~oh
and the county; I
The county is also working
on incentives for the volun-
teers. Currently a volunteer
receives ten dollars each time
they respond to an incident.
The goal under the new plan
would be to encourage volun-
teers to attend training ses-
sions by offering an incentive
for the training.
The plan of unifying all the
fire departments and rescue
squads into one organization
should produce a significant
savings to the county.
According to the draft plan:
Cross training EMS per-
sonnel into the fire service
will reduce overtime costs be-
cause all firefighters are ex-
empt from overtime until
they reach 53 hours in a week
or the average of 53 hours in
a week figured on a cycle up
to twenty-eight days. The
savings will average 10 hours
a week of time and a half pay.
Unifying the fire depart-
ment will produce a substan-
tial savings with each
department's insurance rate.
Currently each fire depart-
ment is paying approxi-
mately $15,000 for their own
insurance including workers

building insurance. By uni-
fying all the insurance costs
under one county policy;
there should be a cost of less
than $50,000 for all the de-
partments combined.
By bidding apparatus un-
der the plan, a cost savings
of $10,000 to $30,000 per
apparatus should be seen.
Cross training of emer-

project was in Freeport

with local officials and the

unemployment. Thanks to a
national '-.it- rgVnl-cy grant
received by Workforce Devel-
opment Board of Okaloosa

JobsPlus is able to provide
employment opportunities to
disaster victims as they put
the pieces of their lives back
together.
Through the grant,
JobsPlus will:be looking for
individuals to assist public
and private non-profit agen-
cies with the clean-up and
restoration efforts in Oka-
loosa and Walton counties.
Priority for the jobs will go to
individuals who have been
dislocated, either perma-
nently or temporarily as a
result of Hurricane Dennis.
Employment applications
for the temporary jobs pro-
gram are currently being ac-
cepted at the JobsPlus One-

or call (850) 892-8668.
Public and private non-
profit agencies, including
government offices, in need of
temporary employees to as-
sist with clean-up and resto-
ration of public areas, are
strongly encouraged to con-
tact the Fort Walton Beach
JobsPlus One-Stop Career
Center at (850) 974-0744. A
representative will discuss
the details of the program
and determine how best to
serve the immediate needs of
the organization.

awareness

and action

save lives
SPS "Circle of Hope" aims
to build awareness, encour-
age action, fund the fight and
find a cure

Since May, many post of-
fices in North Florida have
posted "Circle of Hope" hon-
oring those who help "fund
the fight and find a cure" for
breast cancer.
Those who purchased
booklets of 20 breast cancer
semi-postal stamps, were in-
vited to sign their name-or
the name of a loved one-on
a "Circle of Hope" which was
displayed in the post office
lobby. "I'm glad to say we
have circles of hope almost
everywhere you look," said
the postal service's top execu-
tive for North Florida,
Harold L. Swinton. "Every
circle is a reminder that, in
spite of everything else
they've got going on, people
still care and want to help.
We are all impressed by the
response and their research-
ers are, I'm sure, grateful."
'The eight-cents difference
between the sale price of the
breast cancer semi-postal
and the first class one-ounce
letter rate helps fund feder-
.: j :,. revised breast can-
ear research. Since its re-
Ilet July 29, 1998, the
breast cancer semi-postal

mated that 40,4 I J women

Tips on Eliminating
Mosquito Breeding Sites:
Elimination of breeding
sites is one of the keys to pre-
vention.
Clean out eaves, troughs
and gutters.
Remove old tires or drill
holes in those used in play-

see MEASURES IlA


ing themselves against mos-
quito-borne diseases.
DOH continues to advise
the public to remain diligent
in protecting themselves
from mosquito bites by fol-
lowing the "5 D's," which in-
clude: '
Dusk and Dawn -Avoid
being outdoors when mosqui-
toes are seeking blood. For
many species, this is during
the dusk and dawn hours.
Dress -Wear clothing
that covers most of your skin.
Deet When the poten-
tial exists for exposure to
mosquitoes, repellents con-
taining DEET (N,N-diethyl-
meta-toluamide, or N,N-di-
ethyl-3-methylbenzamide)
are recommended. Picaridin
and oil of lemon eucalyptus
are other repellent options. If
additional protection is nec-
essary, a permethrin repel-
lent can be applied directly
to your clothing.
Again, always follow the
manufacturer's directions.
Drainage Check around
your home to rid the area of
standing water, which is
where mosquitoes can lay
their eggs.
Tips on Repellent Use
Always read label direc-
tions carefully for the ap-
proved usage before applying
a repellent to skin. Some re-
pellants are not suitable for
children.
Products with concentra-
tions of up to 30 percent
DEET are generally recom-
mended. Other potential
mosquito repellents, as re-
ported by the Centers for Dis-
ease Control and Prevent:on
(CDC) inApril 2005, contain
picaridin or oil of lemon eu-
calyptus. These products are
generally available at local
pharmacies. Look for active
ingredients to be listed on the
product label.
Apply insect repellent to
exposed skin, or onto cloth-
ing, but not under clothing.
In protecting children,
read label instructions to be
sure therepellent is age-ap-
propriate. According to the
CDC, mosquito repellents.
containing oil of-lemon euca-
lyptus should not be used on
children under the age of
three years. DEET is not rec-
ommended on children
younger than two months
old.
Infants should be kept in-
doors or mosquito netting
should be used over carriers
when mosquitoes are
present.
Avoid applying repellents
to the hands of children.
Adults should apply repel-
lent first to their own hands
and thentransfer it to the
child's skin and clothing.
If additional protection is
necessary, apply a per-
methrin repellent directly to
your clothing. Again, always
follow the manu-facturer's

FDLE looking


into "additional


matters" in Burgess


investigation


By BRUCE COLLIER
The Florida State Attorney
has put a temporary hold on
further action in the investi-
gation of DeFuniak Springs
Police Chief Ray Burgess.
Assistant State Attorney
John Simon, in charge of the
Burgess case, confirmed that
"some additional matters we
thought it was important to
cover" necessitated the hold.
"We still have the file," said
Simon, "but the Florida De-
partment of Law Enforce-
ment [FDLE] is looking into


these matters."
Simon declined to com-
ment further, but did say
that the "additional matters"
arose since his office was
given the file, and that the
case would proceed to final
disposition once FDLE had
completed its investigation.
Burgess has been under
investigation in connection
with allegations of possible
falsification of official
records. The governor or-
dered the investigation in
April of 2005.

funding

At the Board of County
Commissioners Budget
meeting on July 7, the com-
missioners directed the Eco-
nomic Development Council
to re-evaluate their goals.

Although the BCC ap-
proved the requested amount
in the 2005-06 budget, the
board directed county staff
not to expend any of the ap-
proved funds until further
board action. Commission-
ers Scott Brannon and Larry
Jones expressed frustrations
over recent communications
with EDC Director Tom
Powell. Brannon recently
requested support of the BCC
in calling on the Economic,
Development Council to pro-
vide 20 acres for the Lewis
Bear Distributing Company
to build a new facility in the
Freeport Industrial Park.
The board of county commis-
sioners unanimously, sup-
ported this request. "We
must ensure the people of
Walton County that Eco-
nomic Development is proac-
tive, and that the County
does consider Economic De-
velopment a top priority. We
are looking for ways to im-
prove and meet the goal of
providing careers in Walton
County for the future."

If you have any questions
regarding this information,
contact Commissioner Scott
Brannon's Office at 850-835-
4860.

Blood supply

critically low
The blood supply inthe Ala-
bama, and central Gulf Coast
area is critically low. The Red
Cross is calling on blood do-
nors of all blood types to
schedule a blood donation.'
Please help replenish the
blood supply by donating or
asking someone to donate.
Areas that are normally
'able to import blood from are
experiencing blood shortages
of their own and are not able
to provide blood to our area.
As a result of the low blood
supply,-some elective surger-
ies are being temporarily
postponed.
The public can help allevi-
ate this blood shortage by do-
nating. Remember there is
not a substitute for blood. It
can only come from volunteer
donors.

fnnie Get Your Gun


opens at OIC


By BRUCE COLLIER
Irving Berlin's classic
American musical Annie
Get Your Gun opens this
week at Okaloosa Walton
College.
Actors, musicians, and
backstage crew have been
rehearsing almost daily for
the past two weeks to bring
everything together for
opening night, July 20.
Director Dr. Clifford'
Herron circulated backstage
before last Sunday's
dress/tech runthrough.
Herron customarily directs
the "big" summer show, and
favors large, splashy
Broadway musicals. Recent
productions directed by
Herron have included
Camelot and Into the
Woods.
Herron's shows, as well as
OWC's reputation for design
and technical excellence,


always attract a large crowd
of auditioners.
Annie Get Your Gun, with
songs by Irving Berlin and
book by Herbert and
Dorothy Fields, has been in
continuous production
worldwide since its
Broadway premiere in 1946.
The original cast starred
Ethel Merman in the title
role, and the play made the
transition to a film, starring
Betty Hutton.
Annie Get Your Gun is a
romantic, fictionalized biog-
raphy of Ohio-born Annie
Oakley, a backwoods girl
who can't read or write, but
can "shoot the fuzz off a
peach."
Her skill as a shootist
wins her a place in the com-
pany of "Buffalo Bill" Cody's
traveling Wild West Show.
When Annie meets cham-
pion sharpshooter Frank


Butler, their professional
competition leads to friction,
which, of course; leads to
romance.
The show features some of
the most famous songs
Irving Berlin ever wrote,
including "There's No
Business Like Show
Business," "You Can't Get a
Man With a Gun," "The Girl
That I Marry," and "An-
ything You Can Do, I Can
Do Better."
Additionally, the play
offers trick shooting, knife-
throwing, Indian war
dances, and assorted specta-
cles of the Wild West, -as
only a Tin Pan Alley com-
poser could imagine them.
The large cast features
Broadway veteran Chuck
Wagner as Frank Butler,
and Crista Whittaker as
Annie. Both have great
voices, strong stage pres-


-ll
CRISTA WHITTAKER in
title role as Annie Oakley.
ence, and good chemistry.
Among the supporting
cast are DeFuniak residents
Bruce Culpepper, going on
despite a recently broken
foot, John Michael Roehm,
returning for his second
consecutive summer musi-
cal at OWC, and Nathan
Beltran.
Mike Wright-Reynolds of
Fort Walton Beach plays
Buffalo Bill.
Set design is by Clint
Mahle, and choreography is
by Frances Herron.
As usual, Mahle .outdoes
himself, framing the enor-
mous stage space with
bright, circus-colored flats
and hangings. The effect is
that of an old-fashioned
showbill, full of exciting
images and promises of stu-


JOHN MICHAEL
ROEHM getting into chat-

pendous thrills.
Frances Herron's choreog-
raphy fills the stage with
plenty of action, ably kept in
motion by master showman
Buffalo Bill.
Annie Get Your Gun is
definitely family entertain-
ment, and it looks like it's
going to be an excellent
production..
The show will run July
20 through 23 at the main-
stage of OWC's Arts Center,
located at 100 College
Boulevard, on' the OWC
campus in Niceville. All
performances will be at 7:30
p.m.
Tickets are $20 for adults,
and $15 for persons under
18 years of age.
For more information, call
the box office at 729-6000,

Open Door Community Club holds installation of officials


By SALY ORLOSKY
Graciously presiding over
her last meeting as president
of the Open Door Community
Club, Carleita Levy intro-
duced, guests Martha Ingle
and Becky Carroll. The
secretary's and treasurer's
reports were then read and
approved.
At each meeting during the
year, the Open Door mem-
bers pass the basket for do-
nations to selected commu-
nity-service projects. At the
May meeting, the money is
divided and given to the re-
spective organizations that
were chosen the previous
September to be benefactors
of the year. Accepting the
benefit checks from Open
Door Club treasurer, Susan
Chaney, were Inge Clark, on
behalf of the C.A.R.E. pro-
gram; Louise Guice-Conner
on behalf of special olympics
and Martha Ingle accepted
on behalf of the Shelter
House.
The Open Door Commu-


nity Club salutes the DeFu-
niak Springs Garden Club as
they have won a National
Garden Club Award for their
Reading Garden at the De-
Funiak Library, as well as for
the beatification of the DeFu-
niak Springs Railroad Depot
and other local projects, in-
cluding their very ambitious
and effective sale of plants at
their seasonal plant sales.
This garden club is notori-
ous for promoting the propa-
gation and growing of plants
native to this area. Dara Dob-
son, the local president, is ex-
tremely knowledgeable re-
garding native plants and is
always willing to teach any-
one who wants to get a na-
tive garden started.
The DeFuniak Springs
Garden Club meets the first
Wednesday of each month at
1 p.m. at the First Methodist
Church on Circle Drive. All
interested in gardening are
invited to attend their meet-
ings
The May meeting of the


WINNERS OF THE crazy hat contest are first place, Tera
Newell and second place, Jeanine Garrett.


Open Door community Club
was the final meeting of the
2004-2005 year, and had as
its' agenda the installation
of officers ceremony and the
annual Crazy Hat contest.
Walton County Clerk of
Courts, Martha Ingle in-
stalled the following mem-
bers as officers for the 2005-
2006 year president-Barbara
McLellan; first vice-presi-
dent-Anne Ryan; second vice
president-Jean Fazekas; sec-
retary-Sally Orlosky and
treasurer-Susan Chaney. As
Ms. Ingle installed each of-
ficer, she asked them if they
would fulfill the duties of
each office as she specified in
each introduction. All of the
officers agreed to uphold the
standards and by-laws of the
Open Door Community Club
Organization.
After a delicious luncheon,
the Open Door Club ladies
donned their new hats again
for the Annual Crazy Hat
Contest. To say that the hats
were creations is a misnomer.
They were works of art. The
creativity of the members
seems to have no limits. Win-
ning first prize was Tera
Newell, who adorned her hat
with a dog and doghouse. A
close second place was won
by Jeanine. Garrett, who.
sported a hat covered with a
popcorn box and popcorn ac-
centing all of the movie
memorabilia that was spred
over her hat. Runners-up
were Anne Ryan, Kim
Roughton, and Tracy King.
Betty Bush generously pro-
vided the beautiful floral
table decorations for this
meeting while Carleita Levy
donated the door prizes.
Door prizes .were won by
Lana Campbell, Cindi Clark,
Susan Chaney, Tera Newell,
Gaye Wambles, Marci
Broadbeck, Kim Roughton,
and Mildred Redmond.
The Open Door summer
group will continue to meet
for lunch during the summer
months. Those meetings are
open to all members and are
informal meetings to share
lunch and friendship. Just
like the regular meetings,
they will also be held on the
second Thursday of each
month at 11 a.m. at the
Crossroads Best Western
Hotel. The dates for the sum-
mer group are: June 9, July
14, and Aug. 11. Regular
meetings will commence in
September and will meet the
second Thursday of each


month (September-May.)

The Christian life

is a pilgrimage of faith
By Dr. Robert M. Jaye
John Bunyan wrote a classic when he penned Pilgrim's
Progress. He pictured the Christian life as a journey, or pil-
grimage, with all kinds of experiences, trials, temptations,
decisions and many other happenings. Every person who
walks with the Lord meets various situations along the way.
The pilgrimage of faith is a trusting one. Micah wrote, the
Lord will "plead my cause, and execute judgment for me: He
will bring forth to the light, and I shall behold His righteous-
ness" (7:9). Scholars do not know when in Judah's history
Micah wrote these words. In any case it was at a time of
crisis, perhaps when the Assyrians surrounded the city of
Jerusalem. This situation seems fit for there was only one
place to turn: to the Lord.
Life seems to bring many situations and conditions where
trust is the only logical response. What does it mean to trust
the Lord? It means to open your life to the Lord and place
complete confidence in Him. He will help you through a
particular situation.
The pilgrimage of life is a hopeful one. Micah wrote of
Jerusalem's doom and her future hope. Jerusalem's foes
rejoiced over her and taunted her. "Where is the Lord thy
God?" (Micah 7:10), they asked. Though for the time Jerusa-
lem had fallen, Micah predicted her restoration.
The hope of God's children cannot be destroyed by circum-
stances. There is promised to God's children always a better
day. No matter what the circumstances there is something
better. Even when death comes, the believer has hope for
victory. God has prepared a glorious eternity for His people.
Have you started the pilgrimage with God through Christ?
Open your life to the Lord. That is the meaning of faith.
With faith, you can be faithful in anything that comes along
the journey of life.

Do you have so many questions and no answers? There is a church you can

made. Jesus says to come as you are, not come when you're perfect. If any

The Joy
I Of Fellowship

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

In an interview with David Frost, Billy Graham confessed
that, as a child, he considered going to church on Sunday the
most boring part of the week. While this may surprise us about
Billy Graham, it's hardly surprising in a lot of 'p'ile, .id .a 'd
adults alike.
What do we see in Acts chapter two? Why, it hardly looks
like a church! These people are anything but bored. They're
completely devoted and generous to one another. They're glad,
they're growing. And not a seminar in sightf No buildings, bud-
gets, or buses either. After we grope around on the floor for our
jaw, find and snap it back in place, we must ask, How? How
did they do it? What was their secret?
When we recover the proper understanding of fellowship,
we will take a giant step toward getting excited about the
church again. What, then, is fellowship? The Greek word is
koinonia, pronounced "coin-on-knee-a." It means the sharing
of a common life.
What is this life we share? It is none other than the life of
God in us (1 John 1:1:3), the life which God the Father gives us
through faith in His Son Jesus Christ. In the physical realm,
children share a common life with their parents and, thus, with
each other. My children share my life. My life is in them be-
cause I am their father. Thus, they belong to me and to one
another. That's what makes us a family.
But the sharing of a common spiritual life is different from
the sharing of a common physical life. How" We choose the one
and not the other. My kids didn't ask to be born into my family,
but the people to whom Peter preached on Pentecost did, in a
sense, ask to be born again into God's family: "Brothers, what
shall we do?' (Acts 2:37) They chose to respond to the message
by turning from their sins and being baptized. (2:38-41) They
thus chose to be born again and become part of God's family,
sharing the life of God.
This, as we've said; is a common life; that is, an undeniable
bond exists between those who are brothers and sisters iri
Christ. My own two children, will' always remain sisters.
Whether they live in the same house or not, whether they en-
joy frequent contact or not, they will always be tied to one an-
other by the cord of a common parentage. In the same way, if
you and I share a common faith in and obedience to God through
Jesus Christ, we have a common spiritual Father and we will
always be brothers and sisters in Christ. We are in fellowship,
and it doesn't matter whether we attend the same local con-
gregation, whether we're the same age or share the same out-
look. It doesn't even matter whether we like each other. We
remain in fellowship.
Bob Feller was only seventeen when he signed to play big
league baseball. "Lefty" Weisman was the Cleveland trainer
at the time and happened to be on hand when the young fellow
was first outfitted with an Indian uniform. "Well, son," the old-
timer asked, "how does it feel?"
The boy slid the new cap around on his head and replied,
"The cap seems a little big." Thundered Lefty, "See that it stays
that way!"
Don't get the "big head." Keep yourself in perspective. This
will open the door to humility and humility will open the door
to fellowship.
If many are bored with the church, it is because they have
forgotten or never realized who and what they are before God.
If"gypsy" Christians roll restlessly from one church to another,
it's because they view the local congregation as a sort ofS.A.M.
Club the Society for the Advancement of Me. To put it the
way Lefty Weisman might have, their heads have outgrown
their caps.
No, the church is not a.resort for the preening and the pee-
vish. It's a hospital for those who have been cut to the heart. It
is no'cruise ship, but an Ark of Safety in which the Lord daily
deposits those who are being saved. (v. 47) Only those who
understand that they were adrift in a storm-tossed sea, that
they were pulled naked and shivering from the deep and
plopped on a raft with others so rescued, can truly appreciate
the fellowship the church offers. In simple terms, if w are
grateful to God'for our salvation, we are too grateful to fight
with or split from our brothers and sisters. Those who focus on
the Lord love one another. It's that simple.
Did I forget to include the rest of the statement from Billy
Graham? "Going to church on Sunday was the most boring
part of the week," he said, "until I found God."
Are you dissatisfied with your church? Are you yawning in
your pew? Find God, brother. Find God, sister. And you will
recover the meaning and the joy of fellowship.

Bowl championship series

makes another attempt at polls


..By CHUCK HINSON
The Bowl Championship
Series has created a new col-
lege football poll with a ma-
jor twist-games will actually
be played prior to the votes
being cast.
The new system the BCS
wants to put into play is
called Harris Interactive
College Football Poll. The
purpose of the new system is
to rank the top 25 teams on a
weekly basis, starting Sept.
25, four weeks into the regu-
lar football season.
There are plans to have 114
voters comprised of former
coaches, players and admin-
istrators, plus media mem-
bers.
The BCS is hoping to elimi-
nate the preseason polls from
the grading and rankings.
They say it is unfair for many
teams and clearly favorable
to other teams, year after
year.
The season's first BCS poll
will not be released until
Oct. 17.
The new poll will replace
the. Associated Press Poll,
which the BCS formerly used
in its formula for ranking
teams since 1998. Last sea-


son, the AP told the BCS they
would no longer use their
rankings in the media polls.
The BCS will continue to
use the USA Today coaches
poll and a compilation of six
computer rankings. Each one


of the polls will count for one-
third of a team's grade. The
coaches will also continue
with their preseason ballot.
Both the coaches polls and
the new Harris poll will only
release their final ballots.


By Patrick Casey
David Wilson announced
his retirement as head coach
at Lincoln High School last
week. Wilson coached the
Trojans for 14 seasons and
compiled a record of 119- 47-
1 as well as state champion-
ships in 1999 and 2001. He
will be replaced by 32-year-
old Kyle Rice, who has been
on the Trojans staff since
1991.
Steve Hardin is leaving
Panama City Rutherford to
take an assistant position at
Jacksonville Bolles, the 3A
football power that has
claimed six state titles since
1986. Hardin's son, Randy,
will go with him and have a
fighting chance to become the
starting quarterback for the
Bulldogs.
Florida State has lost both
an offensive and defensive
player before fall practice has
even started. The Seminoles
lost Wyatt Sexton for 2005
after he was diagnosed with
Lyme Disease last week and
will need several months of
antibiotic treatments.
Cornerback Antonio
Cromartie, who had a
breakout year in 2004, tore
his ACL during passing drills
last week and will be lost for
the season. Early signs do not
bode well for a great year for
the Seminoles.
Most of the golf courses in
Walton County survived
Hurricane Dennis with mini-
mal impact. The DeFuniak
Springs Country Club lost a
tree on the second hole, but
it was not in an area that will
noticeably effect play.
The Indian Springs course
in Marianna is improving
playing conditions after tak-
ing8-a caning blow from a,
'Vs'tter spawned by. Hurri-
cane Ivan last September..
Sand bunkers have been
added to the first hole after
the twister decked a large


oak tree that was in the fair- rough, but the course is head-
way. Greens are still a little ing in the right direction.


THE 2005 WALTON COUNTY RECREATION summer
program concludes next weekend. The summer sports activi-
ties have been ongoing since the first of June throughout the
county.

Emergency measures for desperate times


BY TIANA LARSEN
The Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) met again last Mon-
day morning in an emer-
gency session to continue dis-
cussing, updating and clari-
fying actions taking place
regarding the severe beach
erosion caused by Hurricane
Dennis.

The county received a one-
time only beach scraping per-
mit from the Department of
Environmental Protection,
and has begun scraping sand
back up to the bottom of the
bluffs along the shoreline.
As was the case after Hur-
ricane Ivan, the initial per-
mit only allows for a one-time
scraping of a small volume of
sand, but Brad Pickel, beach
management director focr the
South Walton Tourist Devel-
opment Council (.TDC, hopes
to be able to obtain permit-
ting for future scrapings. '


"In order to keep the per-
mit, the county must regu-
late the scraping," Pickel cau-
tioned. The BCC extended
existing contracts with the
two companies that scraped
after Ivan, Ammons Dozier
and Chandler Construction,
arid then had a lengthy dis-
cussion on what to do about
other private contractors
hired by individual property
owners.
Eventually a motion was,
passed directing other scrap-
ing contractors to be required
to sign individual contracts
and be paid by individual
homeowners, who will also be
signatories to the contract.
They will work under the di-
rection of Pickel.
One cubic yard (three feet
by three feet by three feet) of
sand per foot of beach is all
that is allowed under the cur-
rent permit. It was clear to
all officials at the meeting
that this is not adequate to


shore up homes endangered
by erosion of their founda-
tions.
"People will have to bring
in sand," noted Commis-
sioner Cindy Meadows. Ac-
ceptable sand color was dis-
cussed, as.well iis enforce-
ment of the standards set.
The county's planning and
code enforcement depart-
ments will assist with this
problem.
"Please don't restrict prop-
erty owners from either tem-
porary or long term mea-
sures," said Emmett
Hildreth, a Blue Mountain
Beach resident. "We have to
decide who runs this county
the county elected officials,
or the DEP," he continued,
asking David Hallman,
county attorney, to research
DEP's statutory authority.
Hallman suggested the
BCC send a resolution to the
Governor, asking him to de-
clare a shore erosion emer-


agency, which could makead-
ditional funds available for
beach restoration. The BCC
passed a motion to send a let-
ter to the governor.
Hallman also explained to
the BCC that, regarding the
westernmost 4.8 miles of
county beach, currently
slated for dredge and fill
beach renourishment, that if
the BCC allows a temporary
structure, it must be gone
before renourishment takes
place.
Temporary structures
cannot be in place for more
than either 30 or 60 days,
Hallman said, unless the
owner applies for a DEP per-
mit. "If you are building
something that you want for
more than 60 days, you must
consider.the requirements,"
he said..
"Citizens are cautioned,
not to spend thousands of
dollars only to have DEP say
later that it cannot be perma-


nent," he warned.

The discussion then
turned to safety problems
from heavy equipment, beach
scraping, debris removal and
other activities taking place
on the beach. Commissioner
Ro Cuchens suggested clos-
ing the Blue Mountain Beach
access, but his motion to do
so died for lack of a second.
A motion by Commissioner
Cindy Meadows to not close
any pedestrian access at this
time also died for a lack of a
second.
Another motion by Mead-
ows to use white sand
scraped as a top dressing if
the property owner has al-
ready brought in darker sand
passed 3-0. (Commissioners
Pridgen, Cuchens and Mead-
ows were at the meeting;
Commissioners Jones and
Brannon were not in atten-
dance.)
A further motion by Mead-


ows that all county agencies
produce a safety plan in the
next couple of days was also
passed 3-0.
Local resident Richard
Fowlkes asked about pilings
being driven into the beach,
by Choctawhatchee Bay Pil-
ing and Dock, in front of a
home just east of the Blue
MountaiftBeach regional ac-
cess. '"Will this meet DEP re-
quirements? Will it be al-
lowed to stay?" he asked.

Hallman responded that
the BCC can issue permits
for temporary structures.
"Under the emergency order
the BCC has allowed people
to take emergency measures.
That didn't change today." He
then went on to repeat his
previous caution about ap-
plying for a permanent per-
mit within 60 days. "I want
to warn people that what
they are building could have
to come down," he said.


SAND A COUPLE of shades darker than is normally al-
lowed under Walton County regulations was recently ap-
proved on a temporary basis for use on the beach. The relax-
ation of standards was motivated by the county's desire to
help beachfront property owners shore up their Hurricane-
Dennis-damaged property. An example of sand in the ap-
proved color is pictured atop a bag of sand in the color speci-
fied by county ordinance on the right side of County Attorney
David Halman

Measures approved to help rebuild beach homes


By DOTTY NIST
To assist property owners
impacted by Hurricane Den-
nis with their rebuilding ef-
forts, Walton County ap-
proved a number of mea-
sures last week.
The approvals took place
at a July 14 special meeting
of the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners.
The hastily-called meeting
was well 'attended by


beachfront homeowners.
Pat Blackshear, county
planning director, began by
saying that she had been on
the beach the previous day
and was made aware that ho-
meowners were having diffi-
culty finding a source for
sand of the color necessary to
comply with the county code
for use in shoring up their
property. She brought of up
possibility of a relaxation of


the color standards in the
interest of helping property
owners repair and stabilize.
"A lot of people have asked
us.for a deviation from the
white sand ordinance...this is
a huge issue that we thought
we needed guidance from the
board on," she explained.
Blackshear also com-
mented that there seems to
be a shortage of engineers to
provide plans for temporary


retaining walls on the beach.
She wondered if the commis-
sioners thought it was neces-
sary to have engineering
plans for these structures or
whether it would be suffi-
cient to have contractors cer-
tify them.
Blackshear continued
with a number of other
storm-recovery-related items
for the commissioners' con-
sideration. The urgency of


the situation was highlighted
by her observation that at
least 90 percent of the
county's coastline and coast-
line structures sustained
damage during Hurricane
Dennis.
."If some houses don't get
help in days, it's too late,"
warned Four Mile Village
homeowner Hugh Lambert.
Seagrove Beach home-
owner Jim Stephens com-


mented that there is a 35-foot
"drop off' south of their side-
walk along the beach, and
homes are sitting as little as
10 feet from the cliff.
SAll the items outlined by
Blackshear got a positive re-
sponse from the commission-
ers. Some prompted much
discussion, and results of
some of the approvals will

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JULY 21, 2005


AFTER COUNTY CREWS worked hard to remove storm debris that clogged the Oyster
Lake e:ta:'I!. the water was flowing again on Friday afternoon, relieving some of the flood-
ing around the lake. Managing the coastal dune lake outfalls was one of the topics dis-
c:.. i.w at the Coastal Dune Lake Advisory Board (CDLAB) last week. County crews also
opened Eastern Lake, but until the gulf high tide recedes, that lake will drain slowly. "It is
difflirent than anything I have seen before," remarked Earl Day, a longtime, lake resident
and a member of the CDLAB. The board also discussed the clean up contract for the dune
ak.,,, which were inundated with tons of debris from the Hurricane Dennis storm surge. A
r'eCu!:::n:'.:dalion was made to suggest that the public works department coordinate with
the Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance (CBA) and Billy McKee, county environmental planner,
to monitor the clean up and help protect the lakes during the work. In addition, the board
discussed a four-year plan for restoring and protecting the lakes, with the help of the CBA;
CDLAB board members will begin contacting lakefront property owners and other inter-
ested citizens to work together for the health of the lakes.

County budget for 2006 totals $120 million


BY TIANA LARSEN

"Citizens will want to know
what they are getting for
$120 million. Are the streets
better? Is there still storm-
water in my front yard?" re-
marked local citizen Bob
Hudson, at the conclusion of
a county budget workshop
held on July 7.
The Walton Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) held the workshop to
review budget requests from
various components of
county government. The to-
tal proposed 2006 budget is
$120,247,660.
Once the BCC determines
the amount of ad valorem
revenue required for the pro-
posed budget, a millage rate
that will raise that amount
of money is recommended.'
One mill is one dollar in
taxes per each one thousand
dollars of taxable property
value. The current value of
taxable property in the
county is $12.367 billion dol-
lars. Leaving the county mill-
age rate the same as last
year, 5.065 mills, should
raise about $59 million in ad
valorem revenues. This mill-
age rate does not include
school taxes, which are added
on to property tax bills, nor
does it include city taxes or
special taxing districts such
as South Walton Fire Dis-
trict.


Options presented to the
BCC included leaving the
millage the same or reducing
it by one-quarter mill, one-
third mill, one-half mill or
one full mill. The range of
taxes expected to flow into
county coffers if the millage
rate is reduced range from
about $56 million with a one-
quarter mill reduction down
to about $47 million if the
rate were reduced by a full
mill.
Although the Walton
County Taxpayers Associa-
tion (WCTA) called for a re-
duction by a full mill, the
BCC left the rate the same
as last year.
Alan Powdermaker, speak-
ing as co-chair of the Citizen's
Budget Committee of the
WCTA, remarked that the
historical spending pattern of
the county has been to spend
less than has been budgeted
and to bring in more revenue
than has been budgeted for.
"The departments continue
to under spend, and we con-
tinue to accumulate money in
Walton County, without a
plan. I have heard no men-
tion today of the strategic
plan or a five-year plan," he
continued.
"The 50 percent increase in
property value has the effect
of a tax increase. It is not the
county's money it is the tax-
payers' money. The BCC
must have a good plan, for


example a stormwater plan,
or the money should be re-
turned to the taxpayer in the
form of a lower tax rate," he
concluded.
Former Commissioner Joel
Paul had a different view of
things. The workshop was
held just three days before
Hurricane Dennis caused
extensive beach erosion and
property damage along the
Gulf of Mexico.
Paul cautioned the BCC to
maintain adequate reserves.
"Only ten years ago, property
values fell after Hurricane
Opal, and the county could.-
not collect what had beeii
assessed," he said.
However, in a telephone
interview after Dennis came
and went, Patrick Pilcher,
Walton County property ap-
praiser, explained that the
taxable value of property for
this year's.budget was set, by
law, last January 1.
Damage from Dennis will
have no bearing on the 2005
assessments set last Janu-
ary, he continued. "Next year
is when we will feel the ef-
fect," Pilcher said.
"I have not seen anything
like it (the erosion) in 40
years," he said. Pilcher had
been touring the beaches and
was working up some figures
for impacts on taxable prop-
erty values.


Emerald Coast Middle School opening


Walton County School Dis-
trict.Superintendent Carlene
Anderson, and principal, Dr.
John Haro, of Emerald Coast
Middle School, have released
the following information
concerning the opening of the
newest school in Walton
County.
Most recent conversations
with the construction com-
pany reveal that the Emer-
ald Coast Middle School (for-
merly housed at South Wal-
ton High School) could possi-
bly be ready in time for the
beginning of the school year,
Aug. 4. However, it will be

In the event that the build-
ing is not ready, sixth- grade
students will remain in a
temporary setting at But-
ler Elementary School while
the seventh and eighth-
grade students will remain at
South Walton High School
until construction is com-
plete.
The school district states
that moving into the building
could be accomplished in a
short amount of time and
they have all available main-

this happen when the con-

tractor gives the "go ahead."
According to Superinten-
dent Anderson, "We will do
whatever possible to have the
students in before school be-
gins. In the event that this
cannot happen, contingent
plans have already been
made to provide temporary
classrooms in the current el-
ementary and high school. If
not open by the start date, we
anticipate only a few weeks
of delay.
"Our parents and commu-
nity are as anxious as we are
to have this school open on
time but I'm sure that they
will work with us in our tem-
porary setting, if necessary,"
she said.
Should the school be open
on the first day, the school
day would begin at 7:25 a.m.
and end at 2 p.m. Should the
opening be delayed, students
should adhere to the starting
and ending times of the
school they will attend on a
temporary basis.
Sixth-grade attending But-
ler Elementary should arrive
between 7:15-7:30 a.m. and
seventh and eighth grade
students attending South
Walton High School should
arrive between 7:55- 8 a.m.
Bus information will be
provided at a later time.


"It will be a large number,
but not that great in the over-
all picture," he thought, be-
cause of significant increases
in property values just since
January and booming real
estate markets in Freeport
and DeFuniak Springs. "In
the first half of 2005, since
January, values are up 30-40
percent," Pilcher said.
To commissioners, busi-
nesses and residents who are
facing damaged beaches and
an uncertain tourist season,
that was encouraging news.

Dennis clean-up update


Debris removal is currently
underway along Walton
County beaches. Crowder-
Gulf was hired to remove the
debris from the beach by the
County Commission on July
12 and they are underway
with clean-up. They must be
completed with three passes
by the end of August.

Six walk-on beach accesses
remain open to the public af-
ter damages from Hurricane
Dennis. A plan to repair ad-
ditional dune walkovers is
underway and boardwalk re-
pairs are scheduled to begin
with regional beach accesses
by the end of this week. To
find out what accesses are
open or closed to the public,
please visit the Tourist De-
velopment Council's partners
website at www.partners
beachesofsouthwalton.com.
The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
has issued the first emer-
gency order for reconstruc-
tion efforts. Similar to Hur-
ricane Ivan, certain activities
will not require a state FDEP
permit; however ALL activi-


ties require a permit from
Walton County. Individuals
wanting to conduct indi-
vidual activities must contact
the Planning and Building
Department at (850) 267-
1955.
The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
has also issued a permit for
a one time beach scraping
project. This permit is for
all Walton County beaches
and will be conducted by
Chandler Construction and
Animons Dozier. They have
begun in the Blue Mountain
and Seagrove areas and are
moving as expeditiously as
possible. A resolution was
passed by the Board of Com-
mission requesting addi-
tional scrapings from the
FDEP and we are awaiting
their response. If additional
scrapings are authorized,
Walton County will move
quickly to re-scrape all areas.
For additional information,
call the Tourist Development
Council at (800) 822-6877, or

SConservation Tips



SOnly run the dishwasher and clothes washer when
they are fully loaded.


Defrost frozen food in the refrigerator or
microwave instead off running water over it.


SWhen washing dishes by hand, use two sinks one for
washing and one for rinsing rather than letting w ater run.


Use a broom, rather than a hose to clean
sidewalks and driveway\ s.


SIf \ou have a swimming pool, get a cover. You'll cut the
loss of \ ater by evaporation by 90cc.


Repair dripping faucets and leak\ toilets. Dripping faucets
can waste about 2,000 gallons of w ater each year. Leaky
toilets can waste as much as 200 gallons each day.


Never put w ater down the drain w hen there may be another
use for it such as cleaning or watering a plant or garden.


Take shorter showers. Replace your sho\ er head
w ith an ultra lo\w flow version.


SDon't let \water run while shaving or washing your face.
Bursh your teeth first while waiting for the water to get hot,
then w\ash or sha\te after filling the sink.

THE LOVELY DIVAS ofABC's "Desperate Housewives"




are once again the show to watch and beat. The is nominated
for 15 Emmys.


The winners won't
be known until Sep-
tember 18, but Hol-
lywood has an-
nounced nominees
for top honors, and
television. Once
again Desperate
Housewives made a
strong appearance
at this year's Emmy
nominations.

Last Thursday the Acad-
emy of Television Arts and
Sciences, made their nomi-
nations for the 57th annual
Primetime Emmy Awards,
public. A few surprises, but
again ABC's Desperate
Housewives racked up sev-
eral nominations and hopes
are that it will top its wins
from 2004.
HBO led all networks with
a total of 93 nominations.
But a drastic decline from
last year's 124 nominations,
due to what analysts have
contributed to not allowing
the Sopranos and Curb Your
Enthusiasm to be eligible for
Emmy consideration.
CBS led the broadcast net-
works with 54 nominees,
ABC, 51; Fox, 49; and CBS
and FOX both receiving 15
nominees each.
To' no one's surprise,
ABC's Desperate House-
wives racked up a total of 15
nominations. The shocker to
many was the show, Lost,
which received 12 nomina-








Mrs.


tions.
Combined, ABC received
total of 27 nominations. The
network only received a tota
of 33 nods for the 2004 sea
son.
The following are a list o:
nominations, categories and
networks that were given the
nomination nod:

Components of the county budget


BY TIANA LARSEN


MASTERPIECE THEATRE ITS NOT, as stage is set for
comic treatment of Shakespeare at Seaside Rep.


"It is a challenge to citizen
and the Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) to un-
derstand a complex, $120
million budget in a day or a
day and a half," said Dan
Scupin, co-chair, along with
Alan Powdermaker, of the
Citizen's Budget Committee.
For several years now,
Powdermaker and Scupin
have been working with the
county finance department to
make the budget more com-
prehensible to both citizens
and the BCC.
At a recent budget work-
shop, the BCC considered a
proposed budget for the
2005-2006 fiscal year that
begins October 1. The total is
$120,247,860.
According to a budget sum-
mary provided, the budget
breaks out this way:
General fund operations:
$35,882,130
Public works:
$21,725,483
Sheriff (operations):
$17,006,758
Tourist Development Council
$10,677,650


Landfill Operations:
$11,400,000
All other operational:
$18,287,199
Subtotal:
$101,960,661
Capital projects:
$18,287,199
Total:
$120,247,860

According to the county fi-
nance department, in order
to balance the budget, about
$56.5 million must be raised
through ad valorem taxes on
property within the county.
This is less than the
county's total budget be-
cause, according to Bill
Imfeld, finance director, some
of the county's funds are self-
supporting, such as the Tour-
ist Development Council, the
landfill, and others that to-
tal up to about $40 million.
Remaining funds that re-
quire ad valorem taxes are
budgeted at about $80 mil-
lion this year, but then antici-
pated other revenues of ap-
proximately $23.5 are sub-
tracted, leaving the $56.5
million to be raised from
property taxes.


The commissioners looked
over requests from various
departments, including an
additional $4,134,000 for
public works, as compared to
last year. The county plan-
ning and development divi-
sion is requesting $1,486,767
more this year, but Pat
Blackshear, director of that
division, told the BCC she is
looking to increase fees
charged by the division to
bring in more revenue from
users of their services.
"We must get the depart-
ment up to standards. It is
ten years behind the times,"
Blackshear said.

Overall most departments
are requesting more funds
and more personnel and/or
equipment, due to workload
and growth in the county.
Powdermaker and Scupin
have asked for an accurate
head count of county employ-
ees, comparisons of major
components of the budget to
last year, the year to date
funds actually spent, a
break-out of the capital
project expenditures, a func-
tional breakdown of the pub-


lic works department, and
other figures they believe
would make the budget more
understandable.
Gary Mattison, human re-
sources director, said the new
total of "FTE's" or full time
equivalencies, is 513.25 em-
ployees, with 13.5 added in
2005 and 46 new positions
requested in various depart-
ments for 2006.

One particular issue is the
remaining fund balances
when a division does not
spend its entire budget by the
end of the fiscal year, and re-
maining funds "roll over."

Commissioners discussed,
but made no decisions on tak-
ing money from the preser-
vationfund to support envi-
ronmental staff, impact fees
for roads, ways to raise
money for transportation in-
frastructure, hiring a storm-
water manager, updating
salaries, hiring a county phy-
sician, need for a capital im-
provement plan, a public
works plan and strategic
plans from department
heads.

UNSUNG DUMMY plays many parts in "Complete Works
of William Shakespeare (Abridged)" at Seaside Rep.


Seaside Rep versus the Bard

in the complete works of

William Shakespear

(abridged)


By BRUCE COLLIER
William Shakespeare
wrote 37 plays acknowledged
to be his, as well as a few
works that were possibly or
partly his. He also wrote
sonnets and the odd love
poem: i
In. the nearly 400 years
since his death, he remains,
without doubt, English
literature's reigning cham-
pion of highbrow entertain-
ment.
Despite this, many edu-
cated people make it to adult-
hood without having read so
much as one play by the
Bard of Avon. If not for inov-
ies or the occasional PBS spe-
cial, many people would
know only the name, and
not the work, of this famous
dramatist.
In a effort to correct the
notion that Shakespeare is
dull, dry, and suitable only
for people with long strings
of degrees after their names,
playwright/actors Adam
Long, Daniel Singer, and
Jess Winfield wrote a two-act
play entitled The Complete
Works of William
Shakespeare (Abridged).
If you believe that enjoying
Shakespeare is not possible
for you, you ought to get to
Seaside Repertory Theatre
and catch this show.
Actors Joe Starr, Mike
Funt, and Justin Lamb take
no prisoners and have a high-
and low-toned field day with
this hilarious two-hour
piece.
Director Mark Steven
Robinson gave the three a
bare platform, a few pieces
of furniture, and some wigs
and costume pieces. The rest,
to contradict Hamlet, is not
silence.
Every one of the 37 plays
is mentioned, some at length
(Hamlet), some in passing.
Othello is performed as a
hip-hop/rap piece. The his-


tory plays adapt eerily well
into a modern football game,
complete with color commen-
tary. Macbeth features a
"Clash of Outrageous Scot-
tish Accents. "
Romeo & Juliet, familiar
to most people, features
cross-dressing, a balcony
scene that morphs into a pole
dance, and some amazingly
inept sword fighting.
The entire second half of
the play dwells on Hamlet.
The heaviness and emotional
complexity of this play sends
one of the actors screaming
from the theatre. Dragged
back in, he and the others
work their way through the
sorrows of the "Melancholy
Dane."
Sock puppets, fake dag-
gers, shower curtains, rubber
skulls, dummies, and mem-
bers of the audience all play
their part in the perfor-
mance.
If you've ever seen Hamlet,
some of this will seem famil-
iar. If not, you may want to
see the play, just to get all the
jokes.
The company finishes off
with a "backwards" rendition
of Hamlet that, while only
seconds in length, completely
conveys the play.
Needless to say, performing
this play is exhausting, even
for three young and well-
trained comedians like Starr,
Funt, and Lamb. They never
flag, and carried most of the
audience right along with
them.
The Complete Works of
William Shakespeare
(Abridged) will continue to
run, Wednesdays through
Saturday, through July 30.
All performances are at 8
p.m., in Seaside's Meeting
Hall Theatre. Ticket prices
are $20 in advance, $24 at
the door. For reservations,
call Seaside Rep's box office
at 231-0733.

Susan Pareigis, Director of
Florida's Agency for
Workforce Innovation, an-
nounced recently that indi-
viduals who have lost jobs or
businesses as a result of Hur-
ricane Dennis may be en-
titled to Disaster Unemploy-
ment Assistance benefits.

On July 10, President
George W. Bush, in response
to a request from Governor
Jeb Bush, declared a major
disaster for Bay, Escambia,


The Walton County
Health Department has been
conducting saltwater, beach
water quality monitoring at
nine sites once every two
weeks since August 1, 2000,
through the Healthy Beaches
Monitoring Program.
The water samples are be-
ing analyzed for enteric bac-
teria (both fecal coliform and
enterococci) that normally in-
habit the intestinal tract of
humans and animals, which
may cause human disease,
infections or rashes. The
presence of enteric bacteria
is an indication of fecal pol-
lution, which may come from
stormwater runoff, pets and
wildlife, and human sewage.
The WCHD's testing of
Grayton Beach waters
showed good quality.
Site SP-5.
Name Grayton Beach.
City Santa Rosa Beach.
Enterococci 4.
Fecal 14.
Water Quality Good.
For more information con-


Franklin, Gulf, Okaloosa,
Santa Rosa, Wakulla, and
Walton counties, clearing the
way for use of federal funds
to provide assistance to indi-
viduals affected by the
disaster. Although many
workers will be covered by
the state's regular unemploy-
ment compensation program,
those not covered may apply
for Disaster Unemployment
Assistance (DUA).
This is a federally funded
program, which assists indi-


tact the Walton County
Health Department at (850)

ment of Health's internet

viduals who become unem-
ployed as a direct result of a
declared disaster and who do
not qualify for regular unem-
ployment benefits. The pro-
gram also covers self-em-
ployed individuals, owners of
farms and ranches, farm and
ranch workers, as well as
fishers and others who are
not normally covered by state
unemployment compensa-
tion.
The Agency for Workforce
Innovation administers the
DUA program in Florida in
partnership with the U.S.
Department of Labor and
state and regional workforce
boards. Funding for the pro-
gram is provided by the Fed-
eral Emergency Manage-
ment Agency.
Applicants must file for di-
saster benefits within 30


days of the date of public no-
tification. Therefore, DUA
applications must be filed no
later than August 14, 2005.
To be eligible for either the
regular state unemployment
compensation program or
DUA, the applicant must be
a legal resident.
To be eligible for DUA ben-
efits, an individual must
have exhausted all entitle-
ment to any regular state un-
employment benefits and
must have been working in
or residing in a county for,
which the disaster has been
officially declared. DUA ben-
efits are available to unem-
ployed individuals for up to
26 weeks from the date of the
disaster declaration. The

Q: If a person
were to post bail for a friend
in jail, would that person get
his/her money back?
A: As a matter of
fact, it is possible that he/she
wouldn't. New legislation was
passed in Florida that went into
effect July 1, 2005, which
transfers the responsibility of
handling cash bail bonds from
the courts to the Clerk of Court.
It requires the Clerk of Court
to apply monies posted as Cash


Bond toward the payment of
court fees, court costs and
criminal penalties prior to re-
turning the balance, if any, of
the cash bond to the depositor.
(Section 57, Section 903.286,
Florida Statutes) The Clerk of
Court began complying with
this statutory requirement on
July 1, 2005, in all criminal
cases. So, if you want your
money back, it would be wise
to make sure your acquain-
tance has the means and inten-
tion to pay you back!
If you have any questions
or comments about this
column, please forward

8 Fourteen septic systems in
the Gulf Trace subdivision
were reported to have been

the impacts of Hurricane

Trace.
#909D Regional Utilities is water
and sewer provider for the
bulk of Walton County south
of the bay. According to util-
ity company spokesperson
Ashley Dismukes, Gulf Trace
S is the only subdivision in the
company's service area with-
out public sewer service.
Dismukes said this is also the
only subdivision in
Regional's service area where
there are still septic tanks on
the beach.
Water is provided to Gulf
Trace residents and home-
owners from the
subdivision's private wells.
Following Tropical Storm
Arlene in June, septic tanks
in the subdivision were found
exposed, and Crystal Steele
of the Walton County Health
Department had reported to
the BCC that sewage had
leaked onto the beach from
one of the tanks. Subse-
quently, the commissioners
had directed County Admin-
istrator Ronnie Bell to meet
with Regional Utilities re-
garding the possibility of in-
stalling a sewer system at

possible.
Also impacting develop-
ment will be a decision to

on storm damage issues.
"We need to focus on the
storm," District 1 Commis-
sion Scott Brannon said prior
to moving to postpone consid-
eration of the text amend-
ments "until further board
action."
No one spoke in opposition,
and the motion was approved
unanimously.
Blackshear said the post-
ponement would push the
amendment package to the
end of the year in the best
case scenario, with the prob-
ability that the consideration
of the text amendments
would be put off until 2006.
It was the white sand issue
that prompted the most dis-
cussion.
For use on the beach,
county requirements call for
sand at a value of eight on the
Munsell Color Chart or
lighter. However, sources are
limited for this "beach qual-
ity" sand.

County Engineering com-

FROM FRONT
mented that only two pits in
the vicinity have this grade
of sand, the Owl's Head pit
in Walton County and one
owned by Lamar Sikes in
Washington County. Indi-
viduals who have called
Owl's Head have been told
that no sand is available, he
explained.
Graham was aware of
many homes on the beach
being in a state of imminent
danger due to sand loss.
Graham produced sand
samples of various colors and
hues. He noted that all are
found on the county's beaches
in various places and that the
beach sand is a "mix" of col-
ors.
"Obviously, we'd like to pro-
tect our beaches," he said,
suggesting a compromise of
allowing sand of a darker
color and "capping" with two
to three feet of the "beach
quality" sand.
Brad Pickel, a marine sci-
entist and beach manage-
ment director for the South
Walton Tourist Development,
Council, commented that
beach quality sand is still
available. The Owl's Head pit
still has a supply, but it is
only available through the
company's commercial "run-
ners" and not to individuals,
he explained. The Sikes pit is
gearing up and will be able
to provide a large supply of
"good white sand," he added.
"If there's good beach qual-
ity material, it's a terrible
idea to leave it sitting on a
pit," Pickel noted.
However, he admitted,
"There is going to hit that
point when we don't have
white sand."
There is a price difference.


Gulf Trace.
On July 12, Bell informed
the commissioners that it
would cost approximately
$400,000 to provide water
and sewer service to the sub-
division. "There is no grant
or bond funds available and
all the cost will have to be
provided by the owners," Bell
reported.
In a letter to' Bell provided
to the commissioners, Re-
gional Utilities General Man-
ager Mike Standley stated
that. a survey of the
subdivision's 75 homeowners
conducted within recent
months showed that "19 de-
sired service, 35 declined,
and 21 did not respond."
"Presently Regional Utili-
ties does not have the funds
to make these installations
but stands ready to assist
and consider what the Board
of County Commissioners
may purpose," Standley
wrote.
Standley estimated that, if
funding were provided,
Regional's personnel would
be able to install water and
sewer service at. Gulf Trace
iri approximately six weeks.
However, he noted, "it would
only be possible if all the
home owners in the Gulf
Trace subdivision signed up
for both water and sewer ser-
vice."
Bell suggested that one
possibility would be for the
county to "front" the money
for installation to Regional
and have the homeowners
repay the county.
Jones commented that,
with water wells and septic
tanks in the subdivision,
with increases in population
density could come water
quality-related public health
problems.
Gulf Trace homeowner
James Earl Ray, who man-
ages the subdivision wells,
countered that Gulf Trace
has "the finest water that
comes out of this county." Ray
said the subdivision's water
is inspected by the state ev-
ery week.


"I assure you that our wa-
ter is better than Dewey
Wilson's," Ray said, referring
to Regional Utilities' board
chairman.
"We'd like to keep it as it
is," Ray said of the GulfTrace
water and sewer system. He
said no one in the subdivision
had ever gotten sick from
drinking the water.
Ray provided newspaper
reports about sewer system
spills in the area in recent
years, which he argued pose
a greater risk than septic
tank problems.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows argued that
if septic material is going into
Redfish Lake, "it affects
other people" in the commu-
nity.
Another Gulf Trace home-
owner, Bernie McHugh,
urged the commissioners to
put off a decision on the in-
stallations during this very
busy time in the county.
When it appeared that the
issue would not be put off, he
commented, "There's no
cause to come in there and do
this if there's another solu-
tion."
"The county has no more
important issue than to pro-
tect the public health," re-
sponded District 5 Commis-
sioner Cindy Meadows. She
moved to have staff look for
the money to provide the in-
stallations.

the merge point. The Oka-
loosa County Sheriff's Office
Traffic Enforcement Unit
and deputies will be alert for
aggressive drivers and viola-
tors who endanger public
safety.


Beach quality sand costs $22
a yard, while darker sand
costs $4 a yard.
Pickel said many of the
darker sands get bleached
out after being placed on the
beach. There are simple tests
to show which types will
lighten up in this way, he ex-
plained.
Pickel's recommendation
was to stay with the current
regulations for white beach
quality sand as long as
sources are available and
when the supply runs out,
give engineering authority to
begin approving other mate-
rial.
Graham then displayed a
sample of sand that had been
requested for approval for
use on the beach. There is a
"large amount" of this sand
available, he explained,
which comes from the Intra-
coastal Waterway and is lo-
cated on St. Joe property. The
coloring of the sand was iden-
tified as a six light/dark value
on the Munsell charts and a
two "chroma" or color value.
Higher numbers on the
chart indicate a "better" or
lighter sand. County white
sand protection language re-
stricts sand placed on the
beach to an eight light-dark
value or whiter and call for a
chroma value of one or lesser
coloration.
District 4 Commissioner Ro
Cuchens moved to approve
sand the value of the Intrac-
oastal sand or better for shor-
ing up gulf front property,
with the request attached
that homeowners "top dress"
the darker sand with the
white beach quality type
sand. Cuchens specified that
the relaxation of sand stan-
dards would be discontinued
once the state gave Walton


District 4 Commissioner Ro
Cuchens was in favor of ask-
ing Jones to do additional
research to see if any possi-
bility of contamination ex-
ists, prior to a decision by the
BCC.
Jones said the health de-
partment is faced with re-
quests by the people whose
septic tanks have failed for
the department to permit
new tanks. In some cases,
lots have eroded and it is
questionable whether there
is room for new systems, he
explained.
"We have to use standards
that are not ideal," he com-
mented. The department's
only other option is to con-
demn the property, he said.
Meadows asked the Gulf
Trace residents what their
specific objections were to the
installation of the water and
sewer system.
"We're going to lose our de-
licious water," one re-
sponded.
Other concerns were that
roads in their subdivision
would be 'torn up" by the in-
stallations-and that their
utility costs would rise from
a current $200 per year rate
to monthly water and sewer
fees that would exceed that
amount.
Jones was directed'to pro-
ceed with the additional re-
search and report back to the
BCC at a later date.

ing of sand from the gulffront

"I'd much rather see the

Commissioner Scott
Brannon.
County Attorney David
Hallman asked Cuchens if
his motion would apply just
to structures under immi-
nent danger.
"I did not restrict it,"
Cuchens responded.
His motion was approved
unanimously.
Also approved was a mo-
tion by Brannon to accept
contractors' certifications for
temporary retaining walls
rather than requiring engi-
neering plans. The exemption
will apply to storm repair
work only and will continue
for 120 days.
The commissioners also ap-
proved a motion to continue
the existing state of emer-
gency, at the request of
County Administrator
Ronnie Bell.
Bell reported that a con-
tractor hired by the county
would begin with debris re-
moval on the beach that day,
beginning on the west end.
Pickel reported that, de-
spite' Dennis' destruction,
there are a number of endan-
gered sea turtle nests on
Walton County's beaches.
Blackshear said the plan.
ning department was prepar-
ing a one-page permit for re-
pair work on the beaches
which would include turtle
protection requirements. The
requirements will restrict
work on the beach to daylight

low time for turtle morning
surveys on the beach, she
noted.
