Economic development



changing in county


Drawing lines



in the sand


BY TIANA LARSEN
Although District 5 Com-
missioner Cindy Meadows
wants to see her large district
redistributed, the rest of the
county commissioners voted
to accept the recommenda-
tion of the redistricting com-
mittee to leave district
boundaries as they are.
The Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) also voted to dissolve
the redistricting committee,
a move that means redistrict-
ing cannot take place until
2007, since it can only be
done in odd years, according
to Florida Statutes. "Then I
will be happy to send 3,000


or 4,000 calls and emails to
other commissioners to an-
swer since we all represent
the entire county," Meadows
commented.

Barbara Olschner, who
chaired the redistricting
committee, appeared before
the BCC on July 26 and re-
ported that a vote taken by
the committee members ap-
pointed by the BCC as well
as members appointed by the
school board voted 11-4 not
to move forward with re-
drawing district boundaries
to equalize populations in the
see LINES 13A


By RON KELLEY
"We can't attract busi-
nesses that are looking to pay
low wages to get a bunch of
people because, quite frankly,
we don't have a bunch of
people looking around for
jobs with low wages," said
Tom Powell, director of the
Economic Development
Council of Walton County
(EDC). The EDC is a private
company with a volunteer
board and a single employee,
Powell, that is funded in
large part by county goyern-
ment and not everyone
agrees with Powell's assess-
ments.
The Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) recently approved the
EDC's budget request but
put a freeze on the funding,
directing staff not to expend
any of the approved funds
until further board action.
The Commission strongly
suggested the EDC reevalu-
ate its goals.
In a recent interview, Pow-
ell spoke candidly about his
efforts and the reasons be-
hind what some people see as
a lack of substantial achieve-
ment over the last 12 years
since his hiring in August
1993.
"I was learning economic
development at the same
time I was learning Walton
County, so I came here not
only figuring out what was
happening in Walton County,
but also figuring out what it
is I was supposed to be pay-
ing attention to at the same
time. It isn't like I walked
through the door knowing
what to look for, it's more like
I just started looking at ev-
erything," said Powell, "and,
over time, I figured out what
were the pieces of the puzzle
that seemed to be most im-
portant."
Powell said that the trends
in Walton County when he
arrived were almost exactly
the opposite of what they are
today. He compared Walton


County in 1993 to Holmes
and Washington counties,
predominantly rural commu-
nities whose center ofpolitics
and economic development
was the county seat. In Wal-
ton County, the major em-
ployer was Showell Farms, a
large poultry processing
plant, which was later
bought out by Perdue Farms.
The unemployment rate was
pushing six percent.
"It was a situation where,
basically, any job was a good
job, because there were
people who were looking for
employment who could not
find it," he said. "County gov-
ernment had very limited
budgets to work with, so they
were very limited as to what
they could spend to promote
economic development. In
1993, the taxable property
was $1.35 billion. In the (fis-
cal) year that's about to be-
gin, it's projected to be $12
billion," said Powell.
The median income in
1993 was also far below state
standards, but Powell noted
that this was offset by the
relatively low cost of living in
Walton County at that time,
which was about 10-12 per-
cent cheaper that the state
average.
Like land prices across the
county, salary ranges now
vary wildly, too, from mini-
mum wage to $200,000 and
above. Powell said there is a
general benefit to having
some of those high-end sala-
ries.
"Suppose a company de-
cides to create a new, high-
end job that wasn't there be-
fore. The question then is -
who are they going to get to
fill that job? Are they going
to get'some guy that just got
out of high school? Probably
not. Are they going to get
someone that already makes
more money to come take the
job? Probably not.
"What they're probably go-
ing to do is look around and
find somebody who earning


less, but has been preparing
themselves by gettingjob ex-
perience and education to be
able to move up when the op-
portunity presents itself,"
said Powell. "What that does
now is create another new
vacancy. What you get is a
ripple effect that will even-
tually show up as a vacancy
in the entry level position for
that high school student.
"That's why we place such
value on higher paying jobs.
It isn't just one person who
benefits, it actually creates
multiple opportunities for
people to move up," he said.
He said the last frontier in
the Panhandle has been Wal-
ton County and it's filled up
rapidly, creating a situation
where there was a diminish-
ing supply of a very valuable
commodity white-sand,
beach front land.
"Secondly, we had an in-
creasing demand as the Baby
Boomers started hitting their
peak earning years and had
money to spend. Anytime you
have supply going down and
demand going up, the prices
go through the roof," said
Powell.
Powell said that developers
are looking for new places to
go, which is why there is an
explosion of growth around
Freeport. The beach develop-
ment and the Eglin overflow
is, he said, what accounts for
the job increase and the in-
crease in property values.
Powell said that this has
placed an incredible strain
on the county's ability to pro-
vide infrastructure. He said
most people incorrectly as-
sume that whatever their
annual taxes are, that should
be enough to provide for all
those needs.
"But if you're growing rap-
idly, you need the roads and
water and sewer now and
you can't wait twenty years
to accumulate the millions of
tax dollars needed to put in
the extra infrastructure that
is suddenly needed."


TWO DOWNTOWN SHOPS GETA FACELIFT as Fisher Pharmacy and Merrifield &
Pilcher Realty spruce up their storefronts with a fresh coat of paint.


Powell also said that the
lack of affordable housing is
a major problem when it
comes to getting employees
to fill jobs. Historically, devel-
opers have not been inter-
ested in developing afford-
able housing and noted that
only one, Timberwind Es-
tates in DeFuniak Springs,
got enough support by local
government to actually do
the project. He suggested
county government seek
state and federal grants de-
signed to reward developers
of affordable housing.
But, he said, it's going to
take leaders willing to make
tough, unpopular decisions to
locate housing near enough
to the job market, even in
high-end resort neighbor-
hoods.
Powell said the rise of
south Waltoh's huge tourism
industry has brought wealth
and prosperity to the county
and provided the BCC with
more money for incentives,
buildable land and infra-
structure for the county's eco-
nomic development. How-
ever, Powell said, the BCC
'should not be too quick to
provide land or pass out in-
centives to developers.
"When the right business
comes along, not that low-
wage business, but when the
right high-wage business
comes along, we're actually
in a position where we can
spend money to make that
happen if it's the right fit
for our community," said
Powell.
Conversely, when discuss-
ing the growing Cuban and
Mexican immigrant popula-
tion in Walton County, Powell
noted, "We're in an environ-
ment where we have a huge
demand for unskilled labor."
Although commissioners
want to see more jobs, more
businesses and more indus-
try loacting in Walton
County, Powell still advises
caution.
"Walton County has got
lots of jobs. What is can use
more of is career-type jobs
that a person can work in for
20 years or more, with the po-
tential to move up in the com-
pany and make more money.
"What we don't need is to
just bring in any company'
that wants to create a group
of minimum wage jobs," he
said. "I'm not suggesting that
we discourage those busi-
nesses, what I am saying is
that we should withhold our
incentives and our encour-
agement for those businesses
that are actually going to
make life better for the com-
munity. We don't need to be
throwing incentives at busi-
nesses that are offering part-
time wages and minimum
wage jobs."
When asked why Walton
County seems to miss out on
landing the large manufac-
turing and distributing com-
panies, Powell said, "The
quick 'soundbite' answer is,
"We don't have a site that's
suitable for their specific
needs and requirements, but
the real answer is more com-
plex. The (big companies)
won't talk to you just because
you have piece of land in
mind. You first have to go out
there and actually arrange to
have water and sewer service
and zoning and all of those
issues addressed before you
can even submit a proposal,"
he said. "IF you think you
have a reasonable chance of
landing that business, then

KIM PRESNELL


New city manager


presides over first


council meeting


By TAMMY KEARCE
The DeFuniak Springs
City Council welcomed their
new city manager, Kim
Presnell, at this week's coun-
cil meeting. Stepping into the
position formerly held by
Mike Standley, Presnell is
busy becoming acquainted
with city business.

"I have been here for a little
morethan a week, and there
are a lot of projects going on
at this time, so I am still try-
ing to get familiar with ev-
erything," said Presnell. For-
merly public works director
for the city of Chattahoochee,
Florida, Presnell is in the
process of relocating to De-
Funiak Springs, and says she
looks forward to being part
of the community.


Other city business in-
cluded the addition of com-
fortable padded seating at
the DeFuniak Springs Chau-
tauqua Building. The chairs
were recently donated in
memory of the late Jackie
Malone, who worked tire-
lessly to enhance life in De-
Funiak Springs. Unfortu-
nately Malone was killed in
her home last year, leaving
friends and family dis-
traught. But one friend,
Dianne Pickett, found a
small way to honor her pres-
ence in the community she
loved. Working in conjunc-
tion with the city of DeFu-
niak, Pickett approved and
purchased the padded fold-
ing chairs and earmarked
them for use in the
Chautauqua Building.


SPICE program

canceled at West

DeFuniak Elementary


Gail Cole, vocational and
community education direc-
tor for the Walton County
School District, announced
today that a decision has
been made to discontinue the
SPICE program (before-
school and after-school su-
pervision) at the West DeFu-
niak Elementary (WDE)
site. Facilities at the WDE
campus are no longer avail-
able due to overcrowded con-
ditions caused by implement-
ing the state law of class size
reduction.
The SPICE program serv-
ing the WDE and MSE chil-
dren will be located at Maude
Saunders Elementary
(MSE). Children, who attend
WDE and want to participate
in the after-school SPICE
program, will ride a desig-


nated bus from West DeFu-
niak Elementary to Maude
Saunders Elementary in the
afternoon. Upon arriving at
Maude Saunders, a SPICE
worker will escort the chil-
dren from the bus to the
SPICE Program. Children,
who attend WDE and want
to participate in the before-
school SPICE program,
should be dropped off at
Maude Saunders in the
morning and will be bused to
West DeFuniak Elementary.
All students should be en-
rolled prior to participation.
Questions concerning this
matter should be addressed
to Gail Cole at 892-1241, or
Linda Nelson at 892-0665.
Thank you for your coop-
eration and understanding
in this matter.

Walton County School Su-
perintendent Carlene Ander-
son held an Administrators'
Kick-Off Session at the
Chautauqua Building on
Thursday, July 21.
Principals and administra-
tors throughout the district
attended the event which fea-
tured a guest motivational
speaker as well as door prizes,
refreshments, and lunch.
Dr. Wayne Ates, a former
teacher and current motiva-

from his 30 years of experi-
ence.
Carlene Anderson intro-

06 school year as, "Don't Make
Excuses Make Success".
Anderson spoke on focusing on
the district's goals for the up-
coming year as well as keep-
ing positive attitudes in the
classroom. She also reviewed
new standards for schools that
were handed down by the
state and illustrated,%her!e
^ "-,, -


improvements could be made
for the upcoming year.
"I use to hold these meet-
ings when I was principal at
West DeFuniak," Anderson


said afterwards. "It is a great
way to get everyone in one
place and make sure we are all
on the same page with the
start of a new school year less


than ten days away."
Walton teachers report

Editor's Comment



National exposure and perfect vision


By RONKELLEY

As many of you saw, if you watched last week's episode of
20/20 on television, Walton County got a ton of national
exposure and it was all bad. I watched it, wincing and groan-
ing, until I finally had to turn away in self-defense. To find
out about the broadcast, go to the official online site,
www.abcnews.go.com/2020/ and see for yourself.
The focus of the program centered on the recent spate of
drownings along the Emerald Coast and although some of
these tragedies happened in other places, too, Walton County
found itself front and center when blame was being passed
out, having recently made the national headlines with Hur-
ricane Dennis and the fatal shark attack on a tourist.
Walton County has seen more than its fair share of trag-
edy in recent weeks and the last thing it needed was to have
its face rubbed in it by national media headhunters who



Editor,
In an article in the NW Florida Daily News on July 22
about Walton County scraping beaches again, it was noted
"Walton must shift funds around." The same article further
noted that finance director Bill Imfeld would ask the BCC
for $3 million from the county to pay for hurricane recovery.
This money is to come from the county's "unreserved gen-
eral fund."
I am inherently suspicious of the "shifting funds around"
policy. The plain facts are a large sum of the county's funds
will be spent. It can be called "shifting around" or any other
euphemism.
It was obvious from published photographs that the
beaches sustained massive erosion. Why did that happen?
Could it be that condos and other structures were built much
too close to the waters? Will it happen again? Very likely,
and that maybe sooner or later. Should there be a set back
policy on the Gulf?.
My general opinion is that if an individual can afford a
structure within spitting distance ofthe Gulf, he can afford
the cost of shoring up his property, or he shouldn't be there.
One does not have to be an engineer to know that sand is
one of the most erodible kinds of soil, and when wind and
water come calling, damage can be expected.
Walton County needs a lot of infrastructure. One of the
most obvious is roads, particularly the paving of dirt roads.
Long Road junctions with County Highway 2 and 147. Its
paving has been on again and off again for years. What the
cppunty now designates as north Long Road is slightly over
.one-half mile. It was scheduledto be built last year but was
not. This road, all the way to its juncture with Richardson
Road north of Mossy Head, is not a newly-designated road.
It has been there nearly as long as the county has existed,
and guess what? It' is still dirt!.
The paving schedule for fiscal year 2005, dated 4-4-2005,
notes that the half mile of north Long Road is "to be con-
tracted out." My question is, when? Maybe 2010? 2020? The
roadway was widened over a year ago and then everything
stopped.
Even if this half-mile was paved, it still doesn't get to Pine
Log Creek where enormous erosion is going on and has for
years. If I had to'estimate the amount of soil that has washed
into the swamp and creek near the north end of the bridge,
it would be in the tens of thousands of tons, and historically
many times more. Where does all this eroded soil come from?
It is hauled in periodically by county dump trucks, prob-
ably from the Turkey Creek Pit near Liberty.
Some landowners adjacent to Long from Cassidy to the
creek had at one time failed to grant a right-of-way exten-
sion, but my information now is all have done so.
I will conclude this epistle by stating that dirt roads are
like dirt farming. It is down and dirty and cries for
remediation. Long is one of them.

came to town with an agenda.
Although billed as a television "news magazine," 20/20
and others of its ilk specialize in stories told with a hard
slant. They are to television what the National Enquirer is
to newspapers. All the interviews and soundbites, especially
those featuring Commissioner Kenneth Pridgen, were cut
and spliced with surgical precision to create the worst pos-
sible image and painted Walton County officials as greedy,
uncaring, insensitive clods who are only concerned with
fleecing tourists and care nothing for beachgoers' safety.
Anyone who has lived in Walton County for very long
knows this image is way off mark. Walton County officials
and residents know too well that the community's number
one industry is tourism and, because of this, welcome visi-
tors with open arms. The South Walton Tourist Develop-
ment Council has continually pushed the limits of the state's
guidelines for what it can and cannot spend in the name of
tourists and the beaches. The Walton County Commission
has repeatedly demonstrated its willingness to spend huge
amounts of money to increase safety for residents and visi-
tors alike and agencies like the Walton County Sheriff's
Office and the South Walton Fire District continue to ex-
pend vast sums to patrol the beaches, the shorelines and
the streets in an effort to make south Walton one of the




Editor,
Referencing your article "BCC, at odds with DEP over
emergency measures", page 1, Beach Breeze, July 14, 2005,
I am immediately struck by the existence at all of any dis-
agreement among the BCC, DEP, the Corps of Engineers or
the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission regarding
emergency response to Hurricane.Dennis.
As a property owner and taxpayer in the state and county,
should I not expect that all of these agencies would have
had contingency plans and policies coordinated, documented,
and promulgated long ago? It is not as if similar natural
Disasters have not happened before. Even if there had never
been a destructive storm before, would not beach erosion,
dune erosion, and house destruction logically be the antici-
pated primary outcomesiof a damaging tropical storm? So
why now is there even the slightest hesitation to put emer-
gency policies and procedures immediately into effect. No
homeowner should want for clear and decisive direction and
the full force of help and assistance from all state, county
and federal agencies.
Anything short of such a response is an indictment on
those managing these agencies.a.ad.Ahey.should.be~al.d a-:
countable.

Dear Editor,

For a hurricane that "missed" south Walton County, the
damage to the bluffs that make up much of the shoreline
appears to be of historic proportions.
At the risk of sounding like a pseudo engineer (I'm a re-
tired newspaper man and no sort of engineer), it seems clear
to me that the root cause of the extreme erosion caused by
Dennis is the ineffective repair of the damage from Opal
last year.
In short: using "beach scraping" as the sole method of re-
building caused this destruction.
The reason is that it didn't provide enough sand to restore
that lost from the bluffs and it didn't provide any at all to
restore the dunes in front of them. Instead, it lowered the
beach and left the overwash deposits from the storm inside
the first sandbar where they remain. And it took all winter
arid into the spring to accomplish.
The folly of this was demonstrated when Hurricane Arlene,
a minor storm event, scoured the now-shallow sands of the
beach and exposed black sand and sub-surface earth that
had rarely, if ever, been seen since wide-spread development
began in the late 1940s. No turtle nest could have survived.
Tropical Storm Cindy repaired much of this by washing
sand back to the base of the bluffs, but storms don't build
dunes.
The contrast to the recovery from Hurricane Opal in Oc-
tober of 1995 couldn't be more complete.
In that hurricane, Walton County acted within weeks-
as far as I know without all the expert DEP advice and the
needed permits and permissions that were obtained after
Ivan.
Bulldozers were used to push the overwash deposits out
of shallow water and across the beach to the bluffs. Enough
sand was restored to begin the' dune rebuilding that is nec-
essary to .protect the bluffs. Sand fences and sea oats were
added to encourage dune rebuilding, and they were a great
success. Even discarded Christmas trees were used in places
to help catch sand (though I doubt the county did this).
Turtle nesting resumed the following spring and the beach
was soft and deep.
The dunes, to be sure, are temporary but they withstood
all tropical storms for nine years and limited damage to the
bluffs when Ivan's storm surge hit last September. Without
them, the damage from a storm no greater than Ivan was
devastating.
Dennis was much earlier in the season than any of the
previous damaging storms, and damage is so great that full
repair may well prove impossible. I'm sure it will take quali-
fied coastal engineers a long time to figure this out.
But it seems clear that the sand overwash deposits must
be pushed back at least to the base of the bluffs and dunes
such as those at Seaside, WaterColor and other areas pro-
tected by dunes rather than bluffs.
Since depressions that often become storms are forming
in the Atlantic at the rate of several a week, it makes obvi-
ous sense to do this immediately. It's equally obvious that
property owners can't do this themselves because it can't be
done piecemeal. Also, our beaches are open to all and are


the economic engine of the entire county.

safest places in the Southeast to live, work or play.
The main thrust of the 20/20 program was that Walton
County government was too money-hungry and uncaring
to employ lifeguards. What the piece did not say was that
lifeguards alone will not make the difference. I saw an in-
terview earlier last week in which the Panama City Beach
mayor pointed out that lifeguards are not the answer in
Bay County education is.
We instinctively understand that no amount of policemen
or deputies can banish all fatal crimes, no amount of fire-
fighters can prevent all fires and no amount of troopers can
prevent all fatal accidents. It is also true that no amount of
lifeguards can end drownings. The key is education .
Tourists must be taught that the Gulf is not like the creek
or pond back home.'For visitors that come here from inte-
rior states and communities that do not have an ocean surf,
it's unlike anything they have ever encountered. It can be
challenging for even experienced ocean swimmers. It can
be deceptively treacherous and is completely unforgiving.
That doesn't mean that you can't have a safe, fun time in
the water, but large amounts of common sense are required.
For one thing, visitors must learn to memorize the beach
flag information posted at the all of the public access dune
walkovers and in the pamphlets placed in the rooms and
rental condos, followed by the tough part actually follow-
ing the rules designed to keep them alive, healthy and happy.
Swimmers, adults and,children, must be educated about
rip currents, how to recognize them early and what to do if
caught in one. They must follow common sense rules about
swimming in pairs and groups and know how to avoid deep
water and its hazards, like sharks and man-o-wars and other
dangers that do no exist back home.
When red flags are flying or when visitors are asked to
get out of the water, beachgoers should comply not refuse
by shouting, "I'm paying a thousand dollars a week to be
here, so I'm staying in the water as;long as I want!" Visitors
need to remember that thebeach patrol folks take no spe-
cial enjoyment by limiting your outing, they are trying to
keep you safe.
Lifeguards might be one useful tool and, if the'commis-
sioners decide to go in that direction, perhaps it would be
possible for the resorts themselves to form a partnership
and contribute a potion of the funds needed to place life-
guards all along 26 miles of open beach. Maybe the SWTDC
could help, if the state allows.
In any case, I'm sure the commissioners are considering
lifeguards now, even if it is not the answer to the problem.
After all, public perception can become reality when you're
dealing with national media.
I can't help but feel sorry for Ken Pridgen. He never saw
it coming and must have felt like Custer at th6eLittle Big
Horn. I know that I have been in television, radio and the
newspaper business long enough to know that one.does not
sit down with national media personalities unless one is
very experienced and highly- skilled when it comes to the
razor sharp art of debating unpopular positions with people
who are nationally recognized as being at the top of their
game and who grind up the meek and unsuspecting for a
living.
Although I rarely advise public officials to offer 'no com-
ment,' in this case, the next time Brian Ross, Mike Wallace
or any of the other interogators from a network "news maga-
zine" comes knocking at door with a cameraman in tow
wanting a friendly chat, I believe the proper response would
be to bolt the door, brace a chair under the knob, turn out
.'jthe lights, put the phone in the fishtank ang4go hide u p
the bed...for a month.


LETTER TOTHE IEDITOR

Editor:
-:There was an article in the DeFuniak Herald today which
said the commission voted unanimously to withhold paying
Tom Powell and the Non-Economic Development Council.
However, this announcement was clouded with references
to the privately owned industrial park in Freeport. I am
not sure that the commission's intent was made as clear as
it could have been by the reporter. The way the reporter
slanted the story, or should. I say the way he interpreted the
commission's action, Tom Powell was none too anxious to
push for the 20. acres requested by Scott Brannon' for the
Beer Distributor who wants to expand his operation and
move from DeFuniak Springs. Therefore, the commission
was not going to pay his salary, which is in the 2005-2006
budget until he (Tom Powell) becomes proactive. In any case,
my interpretation of the article was the commission was
blackmailing Powell to allow a.private company land to ex-
pand on in a private industrial park.
I hope that both my interpretation and the reporters of
the BCC was wrong. I sincerely hope that after 16 + years
of producing nothing the BCC has finally seen the light. I
would like to point out to them that not too long ago Powell
said his total budget was slightly more than 95,000 dollars.
At the time we the tax payers was paying him 65,000 a year
As I recall DeFuniak Springs and Paxton contributed a small
pittance.
The total of.our contribution arid the two cities did not
add up to 95,000 but when you factor in the 40,000 we have
been giving the Chamber of Commerce one can clearly see
where the money was coming from. Of course, if you asked
the county what the chambervwas using their money for we
got no answer. Seems a lot like the money we used to give
to the Humane Society, "once we give it to them they can do
what they please".
You can't cut off half the snakes head and expect him to
die. If we only hold Powell's money he would still have what
ever we give the chamber, who, if the truth were known, is
really who Powell has worked all these years. He certainly
has not worked for the citizens as evidenced by the fact he
has never produced one meaningful job for Walton County.
I really'hope this is just the first step in our BCC elimi-
nating the most non-productive organization they have ever
hired.

Rare Hummingbird visits DeFuniak Springs

By DARA DOBSON
WALTON CO. MASTER GARDENER

It is quite normal to see Ruby-throated hummingbirds in
our area at this time of year. Their average size is 3-3 3/4
inches and their weight is less than an ounce. They have
green backs,- gray-white underparts and a plainly forked
brownish-black bill. The male has a sparkling scarlet gor-
get. Last week local residents, Shirley and Jim Sandoski,
had a rare white hummingbird visit their home on Coy Bur-
gess Loop. This was the first time they had seen a light
colored bird at their feeders.
The Sandoski's notified The Hummer/Bird Study group
of their rare visitor. Fred Bassett, an authorized humming-
bird bander, came down from Alabama early Saturday
morning to catch and band the bird. He explained that the
bird was considered a partial albino because he had some
faintly gray feathers on his wings and had black eyes. A
true albino is pure white and has yellow legs and red eyes.
The partial albino was still a very uncommon bird and
Bassett was glad to have the opportunity to catch and band
the little guy. He estimated the bird to be only about a year
old. The little bird was very relaxed as Bassett held him
and even drank sugar water from a feeder while in his hand.
He allowed me to lay my finger next to the bird's throat and
feel his heart beats. It felt very much like a cat purring.
Ahummingbird's heart rate is 250 beats per minute rest-
ing and 1200 beats per minute feeding. Their average flight
speed is 30 m.p.h., with an escape speed of 50 m.p.h. It is
thought that they have a binocular type vision that can see
'a feed'er from 3/4 a mile away. They actually lap the nectar
'dut of flowers with their tongues like cat drinks water.
Before releasing the bird back into the wild, Bassett al-
lowed Shirley to hold him. Shirley and I were both sur-
prised that the bird was so docile.
In the past it was thought that only Ruby-throated hum-
mingbirds were ever in this area. The banding and tracking
efforts of The Hummer/Bird Study Group has proved this
information wrong. There have been more than 1,000 hum-
mingbirds banded in the northwest Florida area represent-
ing seven species other than the Ruby-throated hummer.
Fred recommended that we leave one feeder out all win-
ter to encourage migrating birds to stop in.
If you should have an interesting visitor other than a Ruby-
'throated hummerbird please contact Fred Bassett at
Fhound@aol.com or call (334) 244-0227. For more informa-
tion you can visit The Humming/Bird Study Group website
@www.humminbirdsplus.org.
Bassett will present a program on Winter Hummingbird
Banding on December 7 at the Chautuauqua Building. The
event will be hosted by the DeFuniak Springs Garden Club
and will be free to the public.

Nelson claims Whitehouse

wants to give Florida

water to oil companies


"The White House, as early
as July 22, is moving to junk
the ban on oil drilling off
Florida and give control of
the state's waters to Louisi-
ana so drilling rigs can go
up in vast new areas of the
Gulf of Mexico," according to
U.S. Senator Bill Nelson.
The White House plan -
according to an e-mail ob-
tained by Nelson's office -
has been given to Republican
leaders in Congress who are
part of a House-Senate con-
ference committee deciding
what goes in the final energy
bill. In fact, members of the
committee are meeting now
and may start considering
the plan to open Florida's
waters up for new drilling
leases to oil companies.
The plan closely mirrors
one put forward by Louisiana
Senator Mary Landrieu last
month to redraw state
boundaries in the Gulf of
Mexico and give her oil-
friendly state control over
much of the waters off
Florida in the so-called 'East-
ern Planning Area' of the
Gulf. That plan was beaten
by Nelson as a result of his
winning filibuster on the
Senate floor, which ended
with a pledge from Senate
leadership not to allow drill-
ing off Florida's coast.
But now the administra-
tion is working behind the
scenes to scuttle the pledge,
he claims.
According to the e-mail
from an executive-branch of-
ficial detailing what the
President wants in the final
energy bill, the White House
proposal says the Interior
Department secretary should
redraw state sea boundaries;
and, then put much of the
Gulf up for lease to the oil
industry.


BAKER
BAKER


The July 20 e-mail says the
plan even has run through
White House budget officials
who project the oil companies
will get two billion barrels of
new oil reserves which is
the equivalent of only about
three months of U.S. con-
sumption.
"Interior (Department) and
OMB (the Office of Manage-
ment and Budget) have
signed off on this language,"
said the administration's e-
mail to presidential assistants
and staff of Republican send-
tor Pete Domenici, a confer-
ence panel leader. It was
Domenici who vowed on the
Senate floor to honor the ban
against drilling.
"As I've stated repeatedly
- the administration is hell-
bent on drilling off Florida,"
said Nelson, who is in New
Orleans testifying before the
Base Realignment and Clo-
sure Commission against
any ideas that would ad-
versely impact military in-
stallations in Florida.
Nelson immediately noti-
fied Domenici and other
members of the House-Sen-
ate conference panel that if
they renege on a pledge to
honor an existing morato-
rium on oil drilling in the
Eastern Gulf he'll use every
available means to block pas-
sage of the final energy bill.
The conference panel is aim-
ing to finish the bill this
week.
Senator Nelson also re-
ferred to an e-mail from
Bryan Hannegan, head of the
Council on Environmental
Quality to several Energy
Department officials discuss-
ing what he calls the White
House's "hidden oil drilling
plans."
In the e-mail, Hannegan
says, "The proposal would
allow for new leasing activi-


YATES


ties in the Eastern Gulf (in
Louisiana waters as defined
by use of the "seaward lateral
boundaries") and in the
Bristol Bay region ofAlaska.
This activity would allow ac-
cess to over 2 billion barrels
of new oil resources and over
15 trillion cubic feet of new
natural gas reserves, result-
ing in approximately $680
million in new revenues from
bid bonuses and royalties
between 2006-2015.
"We propose directing
12.5% of these revenues to
the Coastal Energy Reinvest-
ment Fund, which would be
shared with state and local
jurisdictions using the same
distribution formula as in the
House bill. The table on the
last page provides the
breakout by state and year.
"Interior and OMB have
signed off on this language,
and we believe that this pro-
vision, when scored by CBO,
will actually reduce the over-
all cost of the bill, provide a
stable source of new revenue
to coastal states, and gener-
ate new energy supply con-
sistent with the goals of the
legislation and the
President's overall policy."
In a letter to Senate con-
ference members, Senator
Nelson wrote, "In the name
of expanding drilling, the
Administration, including
its Department of Interior,
proposes to draw seaward
boundary lines into the East-
ern Planning Area, place
Lease Sale 181 and morato-
rium areas in the Eastern
PlanningArea under the con-
trol of the State of Louisiana
or Alabama and allow Loui-
siana and Alabama to opt out
of the moratorium and leas-
ing bans to drill for oil and
gas.
"The Administration's pro-
posal is very similar to an
amendment Sen. Mary
Landrieu filed in the Senate
Energy Committee during
debate on the energy bill.
During debate in the'Senate,
Chairman Domenici and
Sen. Bingaman agreed to op-
pose any amendments with
the goals outlined in the
Administration's request. As
a result, no such proposal
was even put to a vote in the
Senate. The House also chose
to not include provisions in
its energy bill that weakened
the moratoria and opened up
restricted areas in the East-
ern Planning Area to drilling.
For these reasons, this pro-
posal should not be included
in the final energy bill. If it
,is, I would be forced to fili-
buster the motion to proceed
to the conference report in
the Senate."

pers is paying a cash reward

Cemex receives

two safety awards


Florida Limerock & Aggre-
gate Institute (FLAI) pre-.
sented Cemex with two
safety awards at its annual
membership meeting at Mis-
sion Inn Golf& Tennis Resort
in Howey-In-The-Hills, FL on
April 28, 2005.

This award is bestowed

Professional contractors
associated with the Disaster
Contractors Network (DCN),
many of whom have been spe-
cifically trained to deal with
post-disaster recovery, offer
advice to assist those consid-
ering building repairs.
Get estimates from at least
three licensed, insured con-
tractors. Beware, particu-
larly, of contractors soliciting
door-to-door. Ask for and
check references of other
work the contractor has done.
Ask for proof of license and
insurance. Besides being li-
censed the contractor must be
registered for the area where
the work will be done. Even
those who are from out of
state will have the location
(city or county) and an expi-
ration date on their license.
They must also have workers'
compensation and disability
insurance. If not, the home-
owner could be liable for ac-
cidents on the property. Ask
for written estimate. Read
the fine print. Make sure it
includes everything you ex-
pect the contractor to do.
Get the contract in writing.
It should cover what is to be
done, when work will start,
cost and payment schedules,
and the quality of materials
to be used. If the contractor
provides any guarantees,


annually upon individual
mines that reach at least one
year without a lost-time ac-
cident or reportable injury.
.The two mines receiving
awards were Mossy Head
with two years without a lost-
time accident or reportable
injury and Inglis Quarry
with one year.

they should be specified in
the contract clearly stating
what is guaranteed, who is
responsible for the guaran-
tee, and how long the guar-
antee is valid. A model con-
tract is available on the DCN
Web site at
www.dcnonline.org. under
"Contractors: Hot Topics."
Never sign a blank con-
tract. Once signed the con-
tract is legally binding on
both the homeowner and the
contractor.
Make sure the contract
clearly states who will obtain
the necessary permits. Have
a lawyer review the contract
if substantial costs are in-
volved. Keep a copy of the
signed contract. Pay by
check. Avoid advance pay-
ments and cash payments if
possible. A reasonable down
payment is 30 percent of the
cost of the project. Federal
law gives you a three-day
"cooling off' period to cancel
unsolicited door-to-door sales
of more than $25.
If you decide to cancel a
contract, you should cancel
within three business days of
signing. Send your cancella-
tion notice by registeredmail.
Never make full payment up
front. Most reputable con-
tractors accept payment
based on the percentage of

work completed. Don't sign
over an insurance settlement
check to the contractor.
Don't make final payment
until the job is finished. Ob-
tain lien waivers to ensure
that no one who supplied
materials can put a lien on
your home because the con-
tractor did not pay them. No
reputable contractor will
threaten or pressure you to
sign if the job is not finished
properly. Make sure all work
that requires city or county
inspection is officially ap-
proved in writing before final
payment is made.
When you ask the insur-
ance agent to make a claim,
have your policy number and
an address and telephone
number where you can be
reached. (If you do not have
a permanent address, you
will need a contact through
whom you can be reached).
On the call, ask when an ad-
juster can be expected to visit
your property. The adjuster
will work with you to calcu-
late your losses and prepare
a settlement estimate. If you
do not hear from the adjuster
within a week after the ex-
pected time, call your agent
again.
Evidence of your loss will be
important in reaching an es-
timate. Photographs or vid-


eotape of the property show-
ing the damage are valuable.
If you dispose of damaged
items, such as carpeting or
upholstered furniture, cut out
swatches to show the ad-
juster.
Make a list of your dam-
aged property and note its
age ,and value. If possible,
have purchase receipts for
these-items. Separate dam-
aged property from undam-
aged before the adjuster ar-
rives. Show the adjuster any
repair estimates you have
received from contractors or
technicians.
Call 1-800-621-FEMA
(3362) toll-free to register for
disaster assistance. The De-
partment of Homeland
Security's Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency
(FEMA) may be able to cover
uninsured losses or, if your
settlement is significantly,
delayed, may be able to ad-
vance you cash that you will
pay, back when, your settle-
merit arrives. The speech-
and hearing-impaired can
register with FEMA by call-
ing the TTY number at 1-800-
462-7585. Register on-line at

,hat is a worthwhile action to
take. If you don't think you
have snowball's chance of
landing that business, then
it's kind of a fruitless exer-
cise."
Powell said, "What the
EDC tries to do is to evalu-
ate what projects we actually
have a reasonable chance of
landing and we try to focus
the resources we have on
those types of projects, know-
ing full well that there'll be
other projects that we do not
qualify for."
Walton County Commis-
sioner Scott Brannon dis-
agrees with Powell's ap-
proach. "I'm hearing frustra-
tions expressed by city and
county officials and the pub-
lic alike. We need more jobs
and more industry and I
want the EDC to be more pro-
active and more competitive,"
he said. "Frankly, I don't have

The committee did not ac-
cept the voter registration in-
formation as "hard" enough
data, explained Olschner,
and also felt that the dispar-
ity between districts "doesn't
matter since commissioners
are elected at large."
"It really centers around
my district," Meadows said.
"District 5 has the majority
of the issues, the develop-
ments and the people. I have
12,000 people in my district
at least," Meadows said.

out of waiting to help busi-
nesses get started unless
they agree to provide 400
jobs. We need to diversify our
industry and we need to do
it right now," said Brannon.
"Maybe the EDC is more
interested in selling land, but
the Commission is interested
in more than simply making
a profit on land. We have land
up there that can provide
jobs and I don't mind provid-
ing land for them," he said.
"It's not welfare. We're not
giving the land away. We
make sure there are safe-
guards and restrictions in
place so that if the business
does not meet its promises,
we get the land back, but we
can't get hung up on land
prices. We have to be competi-
tive," said Brannon. "What is

The motion to accept the
committee's recommendation
. was made by Larry Jones,
seconded by Ro Cuchens, and,
passed 4-1. Meadows voted
nay.
"Next time you go to the
polls, just remember taxation
without representation,"
Meadows told the audience
after the vote was taken. "I

plause. Based on state law,

the meeting.


their incentives to attract
new businessesand do.every-
thing we can to keep our ex-
isting industry here, too."
Brannon has been criti-
cized for his perceived role in
the relocation of the Lewis
Bear Distributing Company'
to Freeport from DeFuniak
Springs.
However, according to
Brannon, the company had
no choice. "Mr. Bear had re-
cently built two facilities that
feature indoor loading and
unloading atbusiness sites in
Pensacola and Panama City.
The problem at his current
site is not that there's not
enough land to hold such a
plant, it's the fact that he'd
have to tear down the current,
plant and build a new, one
from scratch which is just
not cost-effective. Not only
that, locating in Freeport is
better for them since it puts
them about 15 minutes from
either 1-10 or U.S.. 98, a cost-
saver in terms of time, gas
and vehicle maintenance,"
said Brannon.
The company was appar-
ently being courted by Jack-
son and Okaloosa counties,
among others, and Brannon
said the distributing com-
. pany is the kind of long-term,
clean industry that Walton
County likes to attract and
he did not want to see the
jobs lost to another county.

Although the EDC actually
owns some of the industrial
park land in Freeport,
Brannon expressed confi-
dence that the BCC and EDC
would be able to reach an
agreement regarding the re-
location deal.
Brannon said he's more in-
terested in providing jobs
than land concerns. "If we
run out of land in one spot,
there's more land available in
other places. It's not like
these are the only industrial
parks we're ever going to
have."
Commissioner Larry Jones,
who has played a lead role in
negotiating with several po-
tential businesses for inclu-
sion in the industrial park in
Mossy Head, agreed, saying,
"What's the goal here to
have property or to create
jobs and put people to work?"
Jones said he supports the
EDC but feels that the EDC
and BCC need to have a com-
mon philosophy when it
comes to economic develop-
ment.
"I still have hope for estab-
lishing common goals, but
when we had a workshop
meeting with the EDC board
recently, it was clear that we
currently have a substantial
difference in philosophy and
this has eroded the public's
confidence in economic devel-

self," said Jones.
"I think our top priority
should be creating more jobs.
Of course, it would be great
to have only high-paying,
high-tech jobs, but that's a
highly competitive market
and not easy to get. Although
I continue to hold out hope, I
think there's a need for mid-
level jobs right now and we
need to help those businesses
locate here," said Jones.
Jones said he was also con-
cerned with the EDC's atti-
tude when it comes to selling
prospective business owners
on Walton County. "I think
you have to accentuate the
positive and minimize the
negative. An EDC point man
should be aggressive, ener-
getic and enthusiastic about
Walton County and not full
of reasons while we can't en-
tice companies to come here,"
he said.
"Sure, it would be great to
hit a grand slam and knock
one out of the park and land
that huge corporation," said
Jones, "but more games are
won by consistently hitting
singles and getting on base
over and over, driving in the
runs one at a time."
Jones admits that the lack


of affordable housing and the
increased need for more in-
frastructure are two major
problems and are holding the
county back from reaching its
economic potential, but says
the BCC is committed to
overcoming the problems.
"From the county's per-
spective, these are tremen-
dous challenges, but nothing
we can't overcome.
"We want the EDC to work
with us so that we can all get
back on track," said Jones.
When asked about the re-
gional economic development
agency known as Florida's
Great Northwest, Jones said
that organization is a tre-
mendous asset because they
focus on enhancing the entire
Panhandle and drawing at-
tention to the region.
He compared the agency to
a giant shopping mall filled
with different stores selling
a similar project.
"Walton County is one
store in the mall and it's our
job to dress it up, make it as
attractive as, we can and put
out the'sale' sign," said Jones.
"Our's has to be the prettiest
to shoppers and become
known as a great place to do
business, time after time:"

SThe kids came in by the
bus load, browsing and mak-
ing their selections in the
store, which opened an hour
early td accommodate their
Sbusy summer schedules.
Among the titles selected
by the kids were Black

Chamber of Secrets, the ad-
ventures of girl detective
Nancy Drew, The Cat Next
Door, and the continuing ex-
ploits of infant superhero
Captain Underpants.
The kids weren't the only
ones shopping. "I'm the bus
driver," said one woman, car-
rying an armload of titles to
the register.
The kids made their
', choices quickly, and congre-
Sgated outside to skim their
Snew books, and trade com-
Sments.
One of the teachers looked

Bringing up mother and father


- THE LONG-TERM CARE OMBUDSMAN COUNCIL is
a group of concerned citizens whose goal is to improve the
quality of life for people who live in long-term care facilities
such as nursing homes, assisted living facilities, adult fam-
ily care homes and skilled nursing units in area hospitals.
An Ombudsman is a specially trained and certified volun-
teer who has been appointed by the governor'and given au-
thority under Florida law to investigate and resolve com-
plaints made by, or on behalf of, long term care facility resi-
dents.
The Northwest Florida Long-Term Care Ombudsman
Council serves residents in four counties: Escambia, Santa
Rosa, Okaloosa and Walton. The ombudsman's job is to pro-
tect the rights of residents, assure that each complaint is
investigated by visiting each facility to evaluate conditions
and conduct annual inspections.
Qualified and caring volunteers are needed to serve all
four counties. For additional information regarding the
Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program or information on
the council, contact the coordinator at (850) 595-8013 or 1-
888-831-0404.


By Dr. Robert M. Jaye

In Exodus 20:12, there are the words, "Honor thy father
and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land
which the Lord thy God giveth thee." The Bible speaks about
the responsibility of both parents and children. The obliga-
tion of the child is not to be overlooked.
Children should respect their parents. The word "honor"
means to value or treasure. They should treasure their par-
ents. Listen to this: "Children now love luxury; they have
bad manners, contempt for authority. Children are-now ty-
rants, not the servants of their households. They contradict
their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at
the table, tyrannize their teachers." Those word came from
the ancient Greek philosopher Socrates.
There are reasons for treasuring parents. Children should
consider why they should respect their parents.
Children should respect their parents because of their
parent's sacrifice for them. Mothers have experienced physi-
cal pain.in giving birth. Both parents have worked hard to
provide food, shelter, clothing and luxuries for their children.
Children should respect their parents because of their
parent's age and experiences. They have gained experiences
in the .'school of hard knocks." Experience has the unusual
ability to bring wisdom to parents.
Edward Gibbon, in his book The Decline and Fall of the


CHURCH SERVICES DIRECTORY


Roman Empire, said that one reason was the decline of the
Roman home. In Judges 2:10 are these words: "And also all
that generation were gathered to their fathers: and their
arose another generation after them, which knew not the
Lord, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel." Chil-
dren, regard your parents as precious treasures. Know God.

Taming the

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

I don't understand myself at all, ior I really want to do what is
right, but I don't do it. Instead, I do the very thing I hate. I know .
perfectly well that what I am doing is wrong, and my bad con-
science shows that I agree that the law is ggod. But I can't help
myself, because it is sin inside me that makes me do these evil
things, Romans 7:15-17.
Some of my Christian friends, have a fascination with ev-
erything apocalyptic, and love to talk about the "Beast" in the
book of Revelation. Much speculation is given, and in my opin-
ion, much time is wasted trying to figure out who, when, what,
and where.
While it makes for some interesting conversation (sort of)
I've found that I have a much greater problem to.deal with the
beast within. It is giving into a desire to do what I know I should
not do, but finding myself doing it anyway. It is drinking at a well
of forbidden thought, acting upon an untamed desire, and re-
fusing to come under the control of the Holy Spirit.
Some contend that Paul wrote the passage above, refer-
ring to himself prior to his conversion, but I just don't buy it. He
was talking-about an ongoing struggle that all of us contend
with. And while it can be conquered, many of us suffer unnec-
essarily because we do not use spiritual weapons God has
placed at our disposal to defeat it., Weapons like truth, righ-
teousness, peace, faith, salvation, the Word of God, and prayer
(see Eph. 6:10).
Why don't we arm ourselves with spiritual weapons that God
provides? Is it due to something within us, this beast I'm refer-
ring to, which leads us to desire the carnal nature we possessed
prior to our Christian experience. And most of us, if we try to
resist at all, do so with the weakest of weaponry available.
We think that if we just pray three minutes each morning, or
read a quick devotional, or take notes when the preacher gives
a sermon, that's enough to combat spiritual forces that attack
us unceasingly. In fact, l'm afraid most of us look at this whole
thing quite superstitiously. "If I recite the creed, say the right
prayer, etc. satan won't be able to touch me. That's utter non-
sense.
The only thing that will tame the beast within is a total and
complete surrender of our will's unto God's will. And that will
only happen when we experience enough conviction in our souls
that we really desire to have God take control. And you know
what? Most of us aren't really there yet. And we're not going to
get there ultAl we begin to take sin as seriously as God takes it!
The longer I am a Christian, and especially since I have been
a pastor, I have become more and more aware bf the spiritual
games so many of us are playing. The deep yearning within
my soul is telling me that something is desperately wrong. And
until we begin to really put God first in our lives we will continu-
ally experience defeat. ,
It is possible to beat this beast, you know. God's promises
of victory aren't some sort of spiritual pipedream He's given us
to pacify us until the final storm has passed through.
Paul wrote, we use God's mighty weapons, not mere worldly.
weapons, to knock down. the devil's strongholds. With these
weapons we break down every proud argument that keeps
people from knowing God. With these weapons we conquer
their rebellious ideas, and we teach them to obey.Christ 2
Corinthians 10:4-5.
In this context he is talking about the weapons of our war-
fare that we can use to convince those who are outside of Christ.
But what I'm suggesting is that we train those weapons on our-
selves! Until we have overcome in our own spiritual battle, we
will hardly be prepared to overtake the demonic strongholds of
those in the world.
So how do we tame the beast within? Today (not tomorrow,
and not next week) begin to pray to God to show you what your
heart looks like to Him. And then ask Him to give you the strength
and the ability to remove every foul spot, every bad thought,
every desire that is not in sync with His own. And then act upon
the power that God will give you to overcome. Then repeat this
process every single day, until that great day when the Mes-
siah comes for His bride.
PRAYER THOUGHT: Father, reveal any wickedness within
me, and give me the power to overcome. I renew my pledge to
you today.
See you this Lord's Day. Sunday School 8:45 a.m., Worship

Can we finally play ball?


By CHUCK HINSON
While the pictures were
being snapped all last week,
the players were wearing
their newest jerseys and
smiles at the Atlantic Coast
Conference' press day in Hot
Springs, VA. The only thing
was that not all of the repre-
sentatives from each Atlantic
Coast Conference team knew
where their individual teams
fell in the ACC.
With the ACC finally get-
ting its game together and
now boasting 12 teams for the
upcoming season, the league
can split into the much
needed divisions. With hav-
ing two divisions, there can
be a very lucrative cham-
poionship play-off game to be
held on Dec. 3.
That's a goal that the ACC
had intended to reach last
year, but can now achieve
-this year sinceBoston Col-
lege officially joined the
league as of July 1. Miami
and Virginia Tech joined in
2004 and played last year's


season as ACC members.
Each of the new districts
have two North Carolina
teams, and both of the Vir-
ginia teams are grouped in
the coastal division as Miami.
The Hokies of Virginia Tech
played Miami last year, and
to the surprise of everyone,
walked away with their first
ACC title after they defeated
the Hurricanes 16-10 in the
regular season.

Powerhouse Florida State
had dominated the confer-
ence since joining in 1992.
The Seminoles had won 11 of
their 12 years as members.
They finished behind Vir-
ginia Tech in 2003, but many
say that this year the Semi-
noles will have a much more
difficult time even competing
in their league due to injuries
and arrests Florida'State's
rep I ha3 been; '"just wait a nd
see!"
The season kicks off with
Florida State taking on Mi-
ami in Tallahassee on Sept. 5.

Expansion

of OWC

nursing

program

approved

The Florida Board of


Nursing has approved a re-
quest by Okaloosa-Walton
College to expand its Associ-
ate degree Registered Nurs-
ing program, increasing
.freshman admissions by 50
percent. OWC was autho-
rized to admit 18 additional
freshman nursing students
to its Fall.2005 class of 36
first-year nursing students -
for a total of 54 freshmen.
Despite the additional stu-
dent allotment, OWC will not
accept additional admission
applications as it has a wait-
ing list of 191 students for the
2005 freshmen nursing
class. The college held an ad-
missions lottery for its initial
class of fre-hman and will.
hold a' lottery for the 'addi
tional slots as well.
"One of the factors which
drove our request for expan-
sion was that 100 of our ap- :
plicants had a perfect score
in our competitive admis-
sions point, system, but we
could only admit 36 of them,"
said Linda Whiteriton. OWC
Associate Dean of Health
Technology and Director of
Nursing. "With the' expan-
sion, we will be able to draw
from that pool of perfect-
score applicants and admit
18 more of these stellar stu-
dents."
Whitenton noted that stu-
dents would not be informed
of their status until OWC
hires the two additional clini-
cal nursing instructors nec-
essary to meet the state's fac-
ulty to student ratio require-
ments.
Whitenton revealed that
the Fort Walton Beach Medi-
cal Center will provide sup-
port for the college's request
to expand by pledging to pay
the salaries for the clinical
nursing instructors should
'state or grant funds riot be
available.
"The Fort Walton Beach
Medical Center and CEO
Wayne Campbell have been
so instrumental in the suc-
cess of our program," said
Whitenton. "Now they are
stepping up to'the plate
again to make sure that we
can expand."
Whitenton said other area
hospitals such as North
Okaloosa Medical Center
and Twin Cities Hospital as
well as other health care fa-
cilities have also been instru-
mental in providing vital
clinical rotations and finan-
cial support for the
OWC nursing program.
The OWC Associate degree
Registered Nursing program
began in 2001 as the first
health technology program at
the college and to date has
graduated 131 students.
Health instruction at OWC
has now expanded to include'
a joint Bachelor of Science in
Nursing program with the
University of West Florida
and OWC Dental Assisting
and Surgical Technology pro-
grams.
A Radiology Techno-
logy program is slated to be-
gin in 2006.

By Patrick Casey
Scott Ates, the former head
baseball coach at both Free-
port and Walton High schools,
has accepted a job to be the
next head baseball coach at
Eufaula High School in Ala-
bama. Ates will also serve as
an assistant football coach
and will teach social studies
at the school. Ates was the
quarterback for the 1985 Wal-
ton Braves when the squad
won the state Class 2A foot-
ball championship.
Freeport and Walton both
have openings for ahead
baseball coach. Charlie
Marello gave up the manager
spot at the end of the 2005
season while Charlie Morse
recently resigned to accept a
"teacher on assignment" po-
sition at Freeport Middle
School.
Three Walton Braves bas-
ketball players are taking
part in the AAU National
Tournament at Disney's Wide
World of Sports complex this
week. Darryl McGhee, J.
Leonard, and Jeremy Dunbar
will all be seniors this next
year at Walton and should
gain some valuable experi-
ence heading into the 2005-
06 season.
Little League All-Star
tournaments wrapped up last
week as Walton County did
not have a baseball team ad-
vance past the district tour-
naments in 2005. The com-
petition was fierce as Tri-
County walked away with the
most district titles this year.
Troy University has signed


four baseball players with lo-
cal ties for next season. Ian
Craze, who attended
Pensacola Junior College, will
play in the outfield next sea-
son while Michael Felix, a
transfer from Auburn, will be
a left-handed pitcher for the
Trojans. Clegg Snipes and
J.J. Whetsel, both right-
handed pitchers from Talla-
hassee, played for Tallahas-
see Community College last
season.
Pensacola Tate lost head
baseball coach Greg
Blackmon to Pensacola Jun-
ior College where he will take
an assistant coaching posi-
tion. Blackmon led Tate to
two state championships and
a 202-42 record over eight
years.
Panama City Mosley
named a series of new head
coaches last week. Crystal
Lewis will take over the vol-
leyball team while Ray Dixon
will coach softball. Steve
Canfield was named
weightlifting coach while
Vern Barth will coach boys
and girls tennis.
Early reports show that it
could be a long season for Tal-
lahassee John Paul II. The
school plans to field a varsity
football team this season and
compete in District 2, Class
B. The roster currently con-
sists of only 16 players,
mostly underclassmen. The
Panthers will play their home
games at Florida High, which
is located across the street
from their campus.

Area athletes on college rosters


By Patrick Casey
Northwest Florida has al-
ways been well represented
on the college gridiron, and
that will continue in 2005 as
many area athletes are pre-
paring for the start of the
regular season in September.
The Florida Gators will
have four players from the
Tallahassee to Pensacola
region on their roster in 2005
and also will carry redshirt
freshIan quarterback
Cornelius Ingram on the ros-
ter, who played in two games
against Walton while he was
at Hawthorne High'School.
Richard Fetherolf, a fresh-
man who played at Tallahas-
see Lincoln, may be
redshirted this season as the
5-11, 174-pound safety may
have to bulk up to crack a
Gator secondary this is com-
prised of mostly juniors and
seniors this year.
Gavin Dickey, a 5-11, 205-
pound junior quarterback,
will be the backup to Chris
Leak in 2005. Dickey, who
had a great year with the
baseball team, has thrown
only 15 passes in two season
with the Gators.due to Leak's
outstanding play at quarter-
back. Dickey also played high
school ball for Tallahassee


Sponsors

for Tomahawk
Trail
The senior class of Walton
High School is sponsoring the
repainting of the "Tomahawk
Trail" on Walton Road. The
class is looking for sponsors
of $25 to help in this project.
The sponsors will be listed on
a sign in front of Walton High
School.
The proposed "Tomahawk
Trail" will run from Tom
Thumb to Walton High
School. If enough sponsors
are found, they will also run
the Tomahawks from High-
way 331 to the school.
The large painted blue and
white tomahawks will be a
visible reminder of the great
Walton High spirit for stu-
dents, alumni, and support-
ers and will let our opponents
know they have officially
"Brave Country".
If you are or someone you
know is interested in being a
sponsor of the "Tomahawk
Trail" call Walton High
School at 892-1270.
Checks may be made pay-

State officials offer


storm recovery help


By DOTTYNIST
"I think a beach renourish-
ment project allows the
turtles to come back, it allows
the tourists to come back,
and it helps the homeown-
ers," remarked Colleen
Castille, secretary for the
state Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection (DEP).
Castille was on the Emer-
ald Coast on July 20, accom-
panied by Mike Barnett, di-
rector of DEP's Bureau of
Beaches and Coastal Sys-
tems.
At an afternoon meeting
With local officials,-citizens
and the media hosted by the
Destin Area Chamber of
Commerce, Castille ex-
pressed strong support for
large-scale beach renourish-
ment as the best recovery
method for Walton and Oka-
loosa counties' storm-rav-
aged coastlines.
DEP has promised Walton
County and Destin a decision
by Aug. 14 on a permit for the
local governments' long-
planned joint beach restora-
tion project. This would clear
the way for work to begin as
soon as October along a six-
mile stretch of critically
eroded beachfront.
"We're doing even-thing we
can to expedite that date,"
Mike Barnett said of the Aug.
14 deadline.
Castille had just come from
a helicopter tour of damaged
beaches in the Panhandle.
"I am very clearly saying to
you that you need to expand
your beach nourishment
project," Castille told the
Walton County and Destin
attendees.
While recognizing that
large-scale beach renourish-
ment projects do not happen


overnight, Castille pledged
her support in expediting
matters, including matching
funding, if the local govern-
ments do move in this direc-
tion. Optimistically, approv-
als could be in place to
renourish additional criti-
cally eroded areas within six
to nine months, "if every-
thing goes perfectly," she
noted.
"I think we can get this
done quickly but the request
has to come from the county,"
she stated.
DEP plans and manages
beach restoration projects in
coordination with local gov-
ernments and the federal
government. The department
also regulates construction,
including storm recovery re-
building, along the state
coastline.
Under a July 11 emergency
order following Hurricane
Dennis, DEP is allowing lo-
cal governments in the nine-
county area including Walton
and Okaloosa counties to re-
pair or replace some con-
struction without a permit.
Included are public roads,
utilities, and dune walkovers.
At the request of the local
governments, DEP has al-
lowed one "pass" of beach
scraping in the wake of Hur-
ricane Dennis to help rebuild
the dunes.
Castille said Walton
County is one of just a few
counties that request to do
this procedure. She was by no
means "sold" on beach scrap-
ing.
"We don't know whether or
not it ascerbates erosion on
the beach." she explained.
DEP simply does not have
the scientific studies to know
for certain, she said.


Walton County District 5
Commissioner Cindy Mead-
ows strongly urged the offi-
cials to obtain that informa-
tion, perhaps through the use
of a scientific "think tank."
Local officials also need it to
respond to requests and
questions from property own-
ers, she commented.
Walton County District 1
Commissioner Scott Bran-
non assured Castille that the
county is "very much in fa-
vor" of large-scale beach re-
nourishment but urged for
more immediate solutions to
the "short term crisis" that
has many local homes "fall-
ing off cliffs."
.Castille responded that the
department has provided a
number of solutions to help
recovery, including authori-
zation of temporary wood sea
walls to stabilize.homes, ap-
proval to use sand from off-
shore sources to shore up
property, limited beach
scraping, and help in expedit-
ing large-scale beach nour-
ishment in critically eroded
areas.
DEP has set u a field of-
fice in Walton County to pro-
vide citizens with emergency
field permitting support and
provide information on hur-
ricane recovery activities, in-
cluding what activities are
authorized on the beach
through the department's
emergency order, any per-
mits needed and attached
conditions.
The field office is located at
the South Walton Court-
house Annex, and staff there
can be reached at 267-1955.
Additional recovery activ-
ity information is available
on the DEP web site,
www.dep.state.fl.us/beaches.


STATE DEPARTMENT of Environmental Protection Secretary Colleen Castille and Mike
Barnett, Beaches and Coastal Systems director, were on the Emerald Coast on July 20 to
provide information on hurricane recovery activities and answer questions from local offi-
cials, citizens and the media.


BEACHEROSION is evident in this DEP post-Hurricane Dennis aerial photo of the west
end of Walton County. This is part of almost five miles that Walton County hopes to renourish
with sand pumped from Destin's East Pass ebb shoal. The project, which is anticipated to
begin in October despite ongoing litigation by opponents, is to include about two miles of
Destin beachfront



Gulf Trace septic tanks


might not go away


SCENES LIKE THIS ONE in Inlet Beach will soon be a thing of the past as sewer
service through IBWS becomes available to the south Inlet Beach community.


Inlet Beach septics on the way out


BY TIANA LARSEN
In addition to the well-
publicized septic tanks un-
covered at the beach in the
Gulf Trace subdivision, nine
others were uncovered in the
Inlet Beach community, but
the likelihood they will be
repaired is slim.
According to Bob Mitchell,
general manager of the Inlet
Beach Water System (IBWS,)
if everything falls into place,
sewers service should be
available to all of south Inlet
Beach next week.
IBWS has been waiting on
the power supply installation
to its new lift station, and


Mitchell said Gulf Power has
promised power by the end
of the week, barring unfore-
seen circumstances, such as
another hurricane.
A startup of the motors at
the lift station is scheduled
for next Monday, at which
time they will be tested by
the manufacturer to make
sure they are good to go. If
all that happens as planned,
IBWS will then be ready to
start pumping wastewater.
And even if another delay
takes place, Mitchell has fig-'
ured out a way to reroute
some lines and provide sewer
to all but two of the resi-


dences with failed septic sys-
tems. Those two houses are
located on Walton Magnolia,
and will need the new lift sta-
tion.
Mitchell has been working
with the owners of the im-
pacted homes and says that,
if owners don't apply for re-
pair permits before the sys-
tem is up and running,
beachfront homes in the com-
munity should be off septic
tanks and onto public sewer
in the very near future.
If public sewer is available,
the health department will

see SEPTICS 16C


BY TIANA LARSEN
After another lengthy dis-
cussion about the septic
tanks at the Gulf Trace sub-
division, the Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) failed
to resolve the problem at
their July 26 meeting.
Fourteen septic tanks and
drain fields were damaged or
destroyed by Hurricane Den-
nis. For some of the homes, it
was the third time in 10
months that septic systems
were damaged, spilling raw
sewage onto the beach and
sending debris from the
drain fields into two coastal
dune lakes, Little ;Redfish
and Big Redfish.
Jim Jones, the new direc-
tor of the Walton County
Health Department, came to
the BCC meeting to answer
questions about health de-
partment and state laws, but
he was unable to say whether
or not repair permits will be
issued, since each house will
have to apply separately, pro-
vide a survey, and meet other
requirements, such as set-
backs.
The BCC also heard from
a number of residents, in-
cluding several Gulf Trace
residents who said they fa-
vored obtaining public water
and sewer from Regional
Utilities.


"We are fouling our friends
- this has gone beyond our
property rights," said Jim
Perry, a Gulf Trace resident
in favor of public sewer.
Some time ago Regional
polled the owners by letter
and did not receive the "over-
whelming majority" of favor-
able responses the utility
said it needed in order to pro-
vide the facilities to the sub-
division. Regional also has no
easements on the private
roads in Gulf Trace.
Jerry Solomon read a let-
ter from the South Walton
Fire District, which noted
that the private water sys-
tem in the subdivision has no
fire hydrants. "We have in-
sufficient fire protection and
human waste on the beach -
this does not help the tax
base or our property values,"
he said.
After further discussion
and some advice from the
county's legal counsel on
what, in the absence of an
ordinance, the BCC could
and could not do about the
situation, District 5 Commis-
sioner Cindy Meadows made
a motion for staff to draft an
ordinance requiring property
owners who have a septic
system blown out by a storm
to pay for cleaning up adja-
cent water bodies and prop-


erties.
The motion was seconded
by Commissioner Larry
Jones and passed 3-2, with
Commissioners Ro Cuchens
and Scott Brannon voting
nay.
Brannon commented that
he voted against the motion
because he thinks it will not
be enforceable.
Another reason to be con-
cerned about failing septic
systems on the beach sur-
faced last week in a USA To-
day article published on July
22, which was referred to in
comments made by Richard
Fowlkes, speaking for the
Blue Mountain Beach Com-
munity Association.
The article cited a new re-
port from the Clean Beaches
Council on potential hazards .
from bacteria in sand. The
Clean Beaches Council is a
national non-profit organiza-
tion that includes the Blue
Wave Beaches program,
which has certified Walton
County's beaches as clean
and safe.
According to the USA To-
day article, the Clean
Beaches Council issued a
new report stating that new
studies show microbes can
survive longer in sand and

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JULY 28, 2005


ii ~dIIIII~;


race Residents


Last week a full-page advertisement was printed in the DeFuniak Springs Herald, which
included pictures and the following very misleading and inaccurate comments. The
advertisement included photos of areas other than Gulf Trace, but it seems that those
photos were meant to have readers believe that they were taken in Gulf Trace. We
can t speak for the pictures that weren t taken in Gulf Trace, but since our subdivision
was the only one mentioned we would like to respond to this inaccurate advertisement
as follows:


FALSE: Gulf Trace is a small residential community with private streets. Gulf Trace has not caused any
environmental damage to our lakes, Gulf of Mexico or neighboring communities.


-
H- -~


The County Commissioners are our elected officials.
The County Health Department is a non-biased profes-
sional organization. The Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP), Health Department and the County
Commissioners have been working diligently to pro-
tect our environment. These people should be com-
mended for the long hours thay have devoted to our
community and not criticized or bullied. Gulf Trace
owners have promptly responded to each and every re-
quest of these departments. If there were a concern by
these officials and organizations you would be reading
articles from one of these organizations and not from a
group that submits anonymous advertisements and the
public health officials would be taking appropriate ac-
tion.
Septic tanks are common in Walton County, and
there is no law that requires us to connect to Re-
gional Utilities. Gulf Trace is not alone; there are
other beach, bay and lake properties on septic
tanks. Gulf Trace was not the only communtiy with
exposed septic tanks.


What is the truth? The truth is Gulf Trace owners of
beach front properties are planning to rebuild in
compliance with recommendations of experts and
with the approvals of the apporpriate public officials.
We in Gulf Trace suggest that we stand behind
those that we elected and take the advice and fol-
low the recommendations of experts. We in Gulf
Trace have every intention of protecting the beauty
and environment that makes our area so unique,
Therefore, we will stand behind those we elected,
trust and listen to the experts, and most important
follow their recommendations and directions. Any-
one can run an advertisement in the newspaper.
We would like to know who is behind the smear job
of Gulf Trace and what is their hidden agenda?
Submitted and Paid For By The Resposible Homeowners' of Gulf Trace


FALSE! All exposed septic tanks were promptly
pumped out on June 11th after Tropical Storm Arlene.
The damaged empty septic tanks have been removed
from the beach, All affected homes have remained va-
cant since Tropical Strom Arlene: therefore there has
been no sewage dumping as was implied. Gulf Trace
property owners are working with public officials and
with private corporations that have expertise in septic
systems so that replacement systems will be situated at
protected locations when the gulf front residences are
rebuilt.




The, Health Department ran samples of the sand and
the water immediately after Arlene. There were no traces
of contamination found. Similar negative results were
found after Dennis.


Septic systems are not an archaic form of waste
management, as some would like you to believe.
There are informed professionals that recognize
a sewer system is not always preferred over sep-
tic systems. When an individual septic fails it is a
minor spill, but when a sewer system fails it is a
major problem particularly with a pressurized sys-
tem such has been proposed for Gulf Trace. Fort
Walton Beach could attest to this as they recently
had a major spill of raw sewage. People become
alarmed when they see an exposed drain field
line on the beach. Granted the black plastic isn t
attractive, but a drain field doesn t release raw
sewage. The released water is 90% 98% pure
due to the biological reaction in the septic hold-
ing tank. Our beach sand percolates in excess of
five inches per hour of rain. Due to the quick per-
colation rate the released water flows directly
downward to the water table. The water table is
where the shallow wells for irriagtion are located.
The Florida aquifer (drinking water) is substan-
tially lower in debth.

It's
the


Qi l I


almost time for
school" bell to


ring and once again
students will fill the
classrooms to learn
the three Rs. Does
your child have any
creative art classes'
as part of their line-
up?

Within the next few days,
the football fields will be
packed with players, the vol-
leyball court nets will be
strung for another season
and the state of Florida will
relax taxes for shoppers to
stock up on their school sup-
plies and needs. The 2005-06
school year will be here and
that means academics,
sports and even creative art
classes.
For many students, these
classes just mean an easy,
fly-by-night period of the


(


school day. To others, it
means a chance to create,
perform and -express them-
selves through a variety. qf.,
artwork and design classes,
choir, band and theater.
For the most part, schools
throughout the state have
begun putting emphasis on
extracurricular activities
that involve the -creative
arts. Many college and uni-
versity review boards are
now requiring a certain
amount high school credit
hours to be creative classes
such as choir, band, year-
book and paper staff.
Here in Walton County,
students have the opportu-
nity to experience the crea-
tive arts in a variety of ways.
The first is through thea-
ter. Not only have the high
schools played an important
role in the start-up of many
of the theatrical productions
that have been taking place,
they have also brought in
performers, such as the
Music In The School pro-
grams, sponsored by WSBZ
radio. South Walton High


School also did an impressive
event this past school year
with celebrating the life,
times and works of William
Shakespeare.
Since 2000, many county
students have participated
in community theater such
as the Grit & Grace produc-
tion. The productions have
not only taught stage pres-
ence, but also the history of
the county most.of the stu-
dents have spent their entire
life in.
The county school system,
onhall grade levels, have in-
.volved students in the arts.
On the elementary level,
one teacher, art instructor at
Butler Elementary, Con-
stance Rogers, hosts several
exhibits and participates in
numerous community or-
ganizational events
throughout the year. It is a
way that her students can
see their works on display
and even have the opportu-
nity to sell their works of art
to collectors and enthusiasts.
Journalism classes have
been around forever and
every school has one to put
out the .paper and the year-
book. It is a club that has
never had to be afraid of
being cut from the school
budget. Even though year
book staffs have to raise
thousands of dollars for the
printing of the yearbook and
find advertisers for their
school newspaper.
The classes teach com-
puter, writing and communi-
cation skills, photography

In the late 80s and early
90s, many politicians, school
board members and even
teachers, said that creative
classes such as choir, art,
journalism, band, etc., were
a dying fad. It would be part
of a curriculum that would be
extinct by the year 2000.
Surprise. Now more than
ever ituhas-beein discovered
that 'a-Y6dtive student that
has the chance to create in
an environment with other
creators, is less likely to stay
out of trouble and be more
productive when they enter
their first year of work or
college.
Creative outlets in the
school systems are one of the
best ways for a student to
express themselves crea-
tively. Imagine if there were
no graphic designers, anima-
tors, actors, performers,
musicians, set designers,
musicians, recording techni-
cians, or even journalists.
I would say it would make
for a very boring night of tele-
vision.
So as you are going over
your child's school itinerary
and they need a subject.to fill
up the rest of their daily cur-
riculum, choose one of the
creative classes that are
being offered. You might be
surprised of your child's tal-
ent and just how far a hobb
can take them.

both the plaintiffs' and the
defendants' motions for sum-
mary judgment, signifying
that a trial will be required
for a decision on the case.
Ajudge's granting of a mo-
tion for summary judgment
can circumvent a trial in in-
stances where the facts of a
case are not disputed by the
parties.
Walton County and Destin
had envisioned beginning the
six-mile-long dredge and fill
project on the county's
westernmost beachfront and
the adjoining Destin
gulffront last fall. The work
was put on hold due to the
two legal challenges filed by
a small number of property
owners in the project area.
The ruling on one chal-
lenge, the subject of a June 7
administrative hearing in
Walton County, was in favor
ofWalton County and Destin.
As a result, the county and

city now anticipate receipt of
their state permit for the
project by Aug. 14.
The opponents' other litiga-
tion, in which a declaratory
judgment is being sought on
the constitutionality of state
statutes regarding beach
nourishment, is still pending
in the Second Judicial Cir-
cuit. Since January, the case
has been under the purview
of Judge Jonathan Sjostrom.
With the judge's July 21
decision to deny motions for
summary judgement by the
respective parties, the case
will enter the "discovery"
phase. This is a process in
which the parties seek infor-
mation from one another,
which may include interroga-
tories, requests for docu-
ments, depositions, and other
requests. The discovery
phase is often the longest
portion of any litigation and
may continue for years.
Generally a trial date is not
set prior to the completion of
all discovery, and no trial
date has been set as yet for
the hearing of this constitu-
tional challenge.
Despite the pending litiga-
tion, Walton County and
Destin are making prepara-
tions to begin the large-scale
project this fall.
Kenneth J. Plante, counsel


for the lc -1 governments,
commented that until and
unless the opponents prevail
with their argument that the
statutes governing beach re-
nourishment are unconstitu-
tional, the current statutes
remain in force and there is
nothing to prohibit the work
from proceeding.
About 175 miles of Florida
beachfront has thus far been
restored in projects similar to
the one planned by Walton
County and Destin, accord-
ing to testimony by Phil
Flood of the state Depart-
ment of Environmental Pro-
tection at the June 7 state
administrative hearing.
Brad Pickel, beach man-
agement director for the
South Walton Tourist Devel-
opment Council, reported
that preparations for the
project include an update of
surveys of the beachfront,
which is necessary due to re-
cent coastline impacts, in-
cluding Hurricane Dennis.
Requests for construction
easements are also being
sent out to property owners
in the project area for the sec-
ond time, Pickel commented.
Pickel said it is anticipated
that the restoration work will
be bid out in August. "We
hope to start the project in
October," he said.


FROM FRONT


ties has contracted with
IBWS to provide 100,000 gal-
lons per day. At Regional's
calculation of 350 gallons per
day per unit, IBWS is about
"tapped out," but Mitchell
said they calculate average
gallons per day of 250, be-
cause year round occupancy
in Inlet Beach is very low and
very few homes use water on
a daily basis.
IBWS is now averaging less
than 100,000 gallons per day.


"We want to maintain our
good relationship with Re-
gional," Mitchell said, and
added he hopes to extend
that relationship.

"It will be a long time be-
fore we get to the limit, but
we are doing something
about it. In the long term, the
county has to be involved too,
because water has to be pro-
vided to south Walton for
build out," he concluded.

TANKS From Front
could pose more health risks
than water-borne bacteria.
The three studies by the
U.S. Geological Survey were
done at different locations
around the country, including
Miami-Dade County in
Florida,and indicated that
bacteria found in human
waste can attach and flour-
ish in sand.
Richard Whitman, a biolo-
gist involved with the stud-
ies, is quoted as saying that
while bacteria in water "die,
disperse, dilute," E. coli can
"last for weeks and months
in sand."
The level of bacteria can
remain high in the sand re-
gardless of water quality,
Whitman said, and is of par-
ticular concern to children,
who often dig in the sand and
then put their hands in their
mouths.
In a telephone interview
with the Beach Breeze,
McLeod said that the focus of
the report is to call attention
to a national issue. "The sci-
ence is just beginning to be
developed, and there are no
requirements or standards
for testing sand," he said.
Asked if sand testing for
bacteria could be added to the
Blue Wave Beaches certifica-
tion criteria, McLeod ex-
plained that a national steer-
ing committee determines
the criteria every three years.
"We are always supportive of
any measures to protect hu-
man health," he said.
The problem at the mo-
ment is that there are no
standards for testing, he ex-
plained, and he sees a need
to determine the extent of the
human health risk. As a
leader in promoting healthy
and safe beaches, the Clean
Beaches Council would ulti-
mately want to see sand
tested, once the studies de-
velop a standard for testing,
Mc Leod said.
