Freeport officials sworn in


By BEN GRAFTON
The first matter of busi-
ness at the Freeport City
Council meeting of July 28
was the swearing-in of the
Mayor, Micky Marse, re-
elected Council members
Jean Arrant and Earl King,
and newly-elected Council-
man Charlie Simmons.
Judge David Green adminis-
tered the oath of office, indi-
vidually, to each official.
Latilda Henninger re-
ported to the council that
Leroy "Bud" Day has agreed
to fill the vacancy on the city
planning board. City Attor-
ney Clayton Adkinson ad-
vised the council that mem-
bers of the planning board
were appointed by the indi-
.vidual council members. It
was determined that the va-
cancy would be filled through
appointment by newly-
elected Councilman Charlie
Simmons. Simmons will con-
sider who to select as his ap-
pointee and advise the coun-
cil at the next meeting.
Henniger broached the
subject of appointing indi-
viduals to serve on the plan-
ning board who live outside
the city limits. She said that
she would bring a draft ordi-
nance on this subject to the
council.
Henninger presented a re-
quest to prc-ceed with re-zon-
ing action on 26.5 acres,
owned by Walbow. LLC and
recently annexed. The re-
quest would change the zon-
ing from county rural vil-
lage to low density residen-
tial. The request was ap-
proved by the council.
A request to proceed with
the adoption hearing of the
Freeport residential large-
scale amendment was made.
The council approved the re-
quest but noted that the de-,
veloper was still bound by an
earlier agreement limiting
the development.
Henninger then presented
:city-sponsored requests to re-
:zone a total of 300 acres,
moree or less, located in the
centrall area of the city and

along SR 20 and U.S. 331
South. The action would rec-
ognize existing residential
use and to change other prop-
erties from low density resi-
dential to mixed use.
This latter action would
permit commercial develop-
ment along the highways.
council approved proceeding
with this action.
Henninger announced that
Eastland Holding, LLC is
ri 'p1n-ing the development of
a commercial dishwashing
and laundry supply service.
The business would be lo-
cated on slightly less than an
acre of property on Bulldog
Road in the Walton County
Industrial Park at Freeort.
At the request of the city
engineers, the council sched-
uled a workshop on Aug. 24
to discuss recommendations
on low pressure sewers.
Council approved opening
bids on the proposed city
water tank at Wind Swept
Dunes on Sept. 9.
With budget season ap-
proaching, the council must
decide what property tax mi-
lage to submit to the tax as-
sessor. The figure has been
set at 3.93 mils for the last


several years. This milage
would yield approximately
$236,000 in the 2006 budget
year. The council approved
the 3.93 rate, scheduled a
budget workshop for Aug. 10
at 7 p.m. and a budget hear-
ing on Sept. 13 at 7 p.m.
The council elected King as
its president for the coming
year. Marse appointed
Simmons to oversee the fire
department, Arrant to over-
,.e*E re're": tioni and C-lurici!-
man Mike Helton to oversee
streets.
Thomas McKnight, M.D.
announced his plans the
council to establish his prac-
tice in Freeport.
Dr. McKnight is affiliated
with Twin Cities Hospital in
Niceville and will devote his
practice family and preven-
tive medicine. He is using a
temporary office in
Bluewater Bay until:his
Freeport office is opened.
John Fogarty appeared be-
fore the council for the third
time, prepared to continue
his argument for the rental
use of the Freeport Commu-
nity Center. However, the
council stepped in and after
cautioning that a previous


use like this had resulted in
damage to the facility, ad-
vised him that he could rent
the center for religious ser-
vices once a month for a
three-month trial period. If
the trial goes well, the ar-
rangemeit may be extended.
Fogarty told the council he
may ask for additional days,
on which the center is not
booked.
Judy Marse, chair of the
Hatcher C cemetery Board,
appeared before the council
and made a plea for financial
assistance. The cemetery is
presently outside of the city
limits.
The board has made a com-
mitment of $26,500 for fenc-
ing, $13,250 of which has al-
ready been paid, but the
Hatcher Board is short more
than $3,000 of meeting the
obligation. A suggestion was
even made that the cemetery
be deeded to the city.
Individual council mem-
bers offered to talk to Walton
County officials and others
and to help clear the path for
the fence with their pri-
vately-owned equipment, but
they could not commit city
funds to a private agency.


School board tentatively adopts budget


By PATRICK CASEY
S The Walton County School
-Board met at the Tivoli Ad-
ministrative Complex on
Monday, August 1, to discuss
various items on the agenda
for the upcoming school year.
The board tentatively ap-
proved the budget and mill-
age for the 2005-06 finaAcial
year. The proposed budget
calls for $88 million in expen-
,ditures with over $51 million
going to general operating
expenses while over $26 mil-


lion is set aside for capital
projects.
Jim McCall, chieffinancial
officer of the Walton County
School District, pointed out
that the millage had de-
creased for the ninth con-
secutive year, mainly due to
the increase in rollback due
to new construction through-
out the county. The village
rate for 2005-06 is 4.456
mills compared to 5.569 in
2004-05, a decrease of 1.113.
The operating budget is


expected to increase nearly
$2 million.from the 2004-05
figures to near $45 million.
Over 80 percent of the $45
million tab is spent on salary
and benefits throughout the
district.
The debt service fund,
which is used to pay the prin-
cipal, interest, and other
costs for bond issues, in-
cludes bonds for both new
high schools that were built
at Freeport and south Wal-
ton, as well as bonds for


buildingVan R. Butler El-
ementary in 1998. The dis-
trict owes a little over $23
million in bonds for these
three schools. McCall also
pointed out that the Walton
County School District has
the higlfet credit rating a
district the size of Walton's
can have.
Capital projects fund ap-
propriations for this financial
year includes budgeting over

Figures compiled by the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement (FDLE) show
that the rate ofviolent crime
in Walton County increased
by 17.8 percent from 2003 to
2004. Non-violent crime
dropped 6.5 percent during
the same period.

Total arrests in 2004 were
5,241, up 54 percent from
3,403 in 2003.
"Violent crime" includes


By BRUCE COLLIER
Following nearly six
months of investigation by
the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement, the State
Attorney's office has decided
to take no criminal action in
the case of Deputy Bradley
Stafford.
The investigation arose out
of a fatal shooting that took
place on the night of Febru-
ary 8, 2005, at: Stafford's
former residence, 125 North
Davis Lane, apartment #46,
in DeFuniak Springs.
According to the factual
findings of the investiga-
tion, Stafford was at home
that evening, at around 11:30
p.m. With him in
the apartment were his
former wife, Barbara, and
their two daughters, ages ten
and five.
The girls were asleep in
their bedroom. Stafford and
his ex-wife were watching
television.
Stafford heard noise out-
side the apartment, and
opened the front door to in-
vestigate.
Standing in Stafford's yard
was Travis Curtis Burns, 22.
Burns, who was nude, was
beating on Stafford's truck
and shouting obscenities.
When Stafford asked
Burns what he was doing
and whether he all right,
Burns "turned and came to-
wards Deputy Stafford in an
aggressive manner...."
Burns "continued yelling,
now at Deputy Stafford."
Stafford retreated into his
house, closing and locking
the door before Burns could
enter. Stafford told his ex-
wife to call 911, and relieved
his service weapon, a .40 cali-
ber Beretta pistol, from a gun
Cabinet.
In the meantime, Burns
broke the living room win-
dow, then forced open the
locked door.
Stafford met Burns in the
hallway of the apartment.
Burns continued to yell and
come toward to Stafford.
Stafford pointed the pistol
at Burns, warned him sev-
eral times to stop, then
kicked him in the stomach to
stop him. Burns continued to
ward Stafford, finally back-
ing him against the back wall
of the apartment.


the offenses of murder,
sexual offenses, robbery and
aggravated assault.
"Non-violent crime" in-
cludes the offenses of bur-
glary, larceny, and motor ve-
hicle theft.
Both categories are classed
as "index crimes" for statis-
tical purposes.
The report notes a 3.6 per-
cent rise in total index of-
fenses, from 1,463 in 2003 to
1,515 in 2004.


Stafford told investigators
that Burns reached out and
grabbed his hands. Believing
that Burns was trying to
take his pistol, Stafford fired
one shot, striking Burns un-
der his left armpit.
Burns fell to the floor at the
end of the hallway. Stafford
said that the hallway light
was on, and that Burns must
have seen the pistol aimed at
him.
DeFuniak Springs Police
and paramedics arrived, and
pronounced Burns dead on
the scene.
An autopsy was conducted
on Burns, and toxicology re-
ports prepared on both Burns
and Stafford.
Cause of death was deter-
mined to be the result of the
bullet piercing the .left lung
and causing a near-two-inch
laceration of the aorta.
A'comprehensive drug
screen made by the Univer-
sity of Florida's Forensic
Toxicology Laboratory re-
ported that Burns'blood con-
tained 1014 ng/mL of co-
caine, as well as 2861 ng/mL
ofBenzoylecgonine, a cocaine
metabolite produced by hy-
drolysis.
The comprehensive drug
screen on Burns' urine tested
positive for carinabinoids
(cannabis/marijuana), co-
caine, benzoylecgonine, and
cocaethylene, another me-
tabolite of cocaine.
At the time of his death,
Burns was suffering from
"acute cocaine intoxication."
Stafford's urine was also
tested, with negative results
for drugs and alcohol.
The report contains several
interviews with FDLE inves-
tigators. Stafford was repre-
sented by an attorney at the
interviews.
Barbara Stafford also gave
her statement, as did several
witnesses in the apartment
area on the night of the inci-
dent.
Their statements all tend
to corroborate the story that
Burns initiated contact,
brokeinto the Stafford apart-
ment, and was killed by a
single shot fired by Stafford.
The report also contains
documentation of Burns'
prior arrests and charges of

First Baptist Church seeks dismissal of Hutchins lawsuit


By BRUCE COLLIER
The latest chapter in a
nearly four-year-old legal
controversy took place on
July 19.

Circuit Court Judge Will-
iam Stone heard argument in
the case ofHutchins, et al. v.
The First Baptist Church of
DeFuniak Springs. The de-
fendant filed a motion to dis-
miss the lawsuit, which was
filed in April of 2005.
The lawsuit was filed by a
group of "adversely affected
and aggrieved homeowners
in the historic district located
in DeFuniak Springs."
What affects and aggrieves
the plaintiffs is the 2001 de-
cision of First Baptist to de-


molish "a 100-year-old his-
toric residence located at the
corner of Live Oak and Cres-
cent and to construct a park-
ing lot."
In December of 2001, First
Baptist sought a certificate of
appropriateness from build-
ing-zoning official larry
Laird. Laird denied the ap-
plication and refused to is-
sue the certificate.
The church appealed to the
DeFuniak Springs City
Council, which voted to au-
thorize the certificate.

Protests were made, and
the council delayed issuance
of the certificate until
March of 2002, when the cer-
tificate was issued.


Concerned parties in oppo-
sition sought an injunction
against demolition. Sqbse-
quently, the same group pe-
titioned the Circuit Court for
a writ of certiorari appealing
the action of demolition and
construction of the parking
lot.
These actions were
brought against the city of
DeFuniak Springs, not the
church.
The petition for writ of cer-
tiorari was granted, and the
authorization for the work
was quashed.

In the meantime, however,
the church had already de-
molished the building and
built the parking lot.


Accordingly, a group often
plaintiffs brought an action
against First Baptist
Church.
The action seeks, in part,
that First Baptist be en-
joined against any further
action authorized by the
quashed certificate, and that
the church be compelled "to
restore the property to the
original status quo."
In short, the plaintiffs
want the parking lot taken
out.

First Baptist has filed a
motion to dismiss the law-
suit.
First Baptist has alleged
that the plaintiffs have no
standing to bring the action,


because the statute under
which the action is brought
authorizes actions against
"local government."
Also, the plaintiffs cannot
ask for a restoration of the
area to its original state, be-
cause the house has been de-
stroyed already.

In deciding the issue, the
court will be guided by a
number of cases, including
Pinecrest Lakes, Inc. v.
Shidel, a 2001 decision
handed down by the Florida
District Court of Appeal for
the Fourth District.
Shidell involved a devel-
oper, who had built several
apartment buildings that
were allegedly in violation


of a county comprehensive
plan. The builder continued
to build while the case was
on appeal.
The developer lost the ap-
peal, and the court ordered
that the buildings be demol-
ished, despite the great ex-
pense it would entail.
According to Hutchins' co-
counsel J. Lorriane Bytell,
Shidell is a "premier case, "
since Hutchins and his fellow
plaintiffs have asked, among
other things, that the park-
ing lot be removed and the
property restored to its origi-
nal state.
Judge Stone did not specify
when he would rule, but
Bytell said that her clients
hope it will be soon.

Nachoochee V. Pickett


By RON KELLEY
Recently, Choctaw Beach'
resident and author Dari
Bradley was successful in
getting Congress to recognize
the sacrifice of a group of air-
men whose lives were lost in
the attack on Khobar Towers,
specifically a family member
named Joseph Rimkus. Nine
years ago, on June 25, 1996,
a truck bomb exploded out-
side the fence around the
Khobar Towers compound in
Dhahran, Saudi Arabia.
The bomb, estimated at
more than three thousand
pounds, detonated about
eighty-five feet from a resi-
dential unit housing U.S.
troops, killing 19 members of
the United States Air Force
and injured 372 other Ameri-
cans and Saudis. President
Bill Clinton paid a visit to
Eglin AFB to pay tribute to
the fallen airmen. Many of
the military casualties were
from EglinAir Force Base, lo-
cated in Representative Jeff
Miller?s Congressional Dis-
trict.
! icaly, the wheels ofbu-
reaucracy grind slowly, but
hot this time. In fact, Helen
Walker, legislative director
for Congressman J4eff Miller
noted that this resolution
fairly flew through the house.
"Yesterday, Congressman
Miller introduced House
Concurrent Resolution 188
("H.Con.Res. 188"), honoring
the fallen airmen of the
Khobar Towers resolution.
This resolution has been
vetted with the House Armed
Services Committee, which
cleared the bill for floor con-
sideration under suspension
of the rules...for Monday,
June 27, 2005," said Walker.
"I, cannot underscore how
rare it is for a bill to go from
draft to floor clearance in
under 36 hours. Under nor-
mal circumstances, this
takes weeks, months, in
some cases, years. We have
the Armed Services Commit-
tee to thank for its expedi-
ence. Congressman Miller
pressed for this unusual pro-
cess so that the family mem-
bers of the fallen airmen

would have the opportunity
to be present in the House of
Representatives for the de-
bate and, hopefully, passage
of the resolution."
During Rep. Miller's
speech on the House floor, he
read a letter from Dari
Bradley's sister-in-law,
Bridget Brooks, Rimkus'
mother, which said, "When
Joseph joined the military, he
told me that now he could
have a flag on his coffin like
his grandfather. He knew I
worried about his safety and
had not allowed him to join
when he was seventeen, but
he was so devoted to the mili-
tary that in his last letter to
me he told me that I was his
hero and he was going to
make a career out of serving
his country. He was so proud
to be in the Air Force.
As for his youth, he became
the man of the house when
his father abandoned us
while serving a tour in Korea,
and Joseph was my biggest
supporter as I put myself
through college. He called me
the day he died and his last
words to me were that he
loved me. He was the tenth
first born son to be named
Joseph. He did not talk about
being a father because that
was a done deal.
Instead, he talked in great
length of what kind of grand-
father he would be. My fam-
ily may never recover from
this loss. Joseph was one of
those rare souls who gave all.
Before he left, he made sure


that I knew he was a Chris-
tian and he would be a
Catholic all of his life. Can
you imagine how that knowl-
edge has comforted me?
There is no amount of money
to pay for that. .Even to this
day, people still tell me how
wonderful he was. 'In the
court case against Iran, one
airman, who I did not know,
testified that while they were
all huddled in mass after the
bombing, and they knew the
boys who were killed, it was
Joseph's presence that he
felt. That does not surprise
me. Joseph was there for his
friends That is just what he
would do."
Miller closed his remarks
by saying, "Mr. Speaker, our
action on this resolution is a
message to those who died,
their family members, our
nation and the rest of the
world, that we honor the sac-
rifices of these nineteen air-
men and the families they
left behind. They served with

the highest and best military
traditions. No one could have
served better or given more."
After the'resolution was
passed, Miller said, "This
resolution should remind us
that these brave Americans
then, as well as those serv-
ing in uniform today, will-
ingly risked their lives to de-
fend United States' interests
as well as our freedom,"
Miller said. "These men will
not be forgotten. Our nation
owes them a debt of grati-
tude."


THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 4, 2005


Both parties file for appeal


By BRUCE COLLIER
Attorneys for both sides
have filed notices of appeal
and cross-appeal in the the
case of Nacoochee v. Pickett.
The appeals, filed the last
week of July, arise from the
June 20, 2005 order rendered
by First Judicial Circuit
Court Judge William F.
Stone. The case was tried
before Judge Stone in Febru-
ary of 2005.


The dispute arose out of a
contract for purchase and
sale of some 1,400 acres of
real property known owned
by Diane Pickett.
The parties respectively
sought either recission or
modification of original con-
tract. Pickett wanted the con-
tract cancelled, and
Nacoochee, a Georgia devel-
oper, wanted the land at a
substantially reduced price.


The price came into dispute
following a survey that
showed the land to be ap-
proximately 50 percent wet-
land.
In a 12-page order, Stone
ordered that the property be
sold at the original purchase
price. Thus, neither side got
exactly what it wanted in the
lawsuit.
The notices of appeal and
cross-appeal do not contain


the issues or points of law
on which the respective par-
ties will appeal.
The appeals will be made
to the First District Court of
Appeal, which has appellate
jurisdiction over Walton
County cases.
The appellate process, in-
volving filing of briefs, oral
argument, and the court's
decision, can take months.


Volunteers needed for
Type 2 Diabetes Research Study
in Panhandle area
Volunteers are needed to participate in a research
study of an investigational medication that may help
control blood sugar levels in people with Type 2 Diabe-
tes. Physicians at Doctors Medical Center in DeFuniak
Springs have been selected to participate in this na-
tionwide study.

blindness, kidney disease, nerve disease, dental disease
and lower-limb amputation. Researchers are continu-
ing to look for medications to help control blood sugar
levels.
To qualify, candidates must be managing their diabe-
tes through diet and exercise alone and not currently
taking oral antidiabetic medication.
Qualified volunteers will receive all study-related care
at no charge, including physical examinations, labora-
tory services, and investigational medication. Financial
compensation is also provided for this study for mile-
age and a meal challenge.

WLQWAJ~s2S PERSONAL COMMENTS



Editor's Comment


Administration's energy plan fizzles


By RONKELLEY

By now, I should know better than to get my hopes up,
but, like the Little Old Ant, I had high hopes. I had "high
apple pie-in-the-sky hopes." Unfortunately, just when I
started to think that we might finally see some well-planned,
far-reaching legislation that benefits Americans not just
for the moment, but for years into the future along comes
another dangerously short-sighted plan that rewards cor-
porate special interests at the expense of the American pub-
lic. Again.
The administration's new energy plan is all fizzle and no
sizzle. Americans of every color and creed need to be eman-
cipated from their absolute dependence upon oil, especially
oil from Middle East since part of those billion-dollar prof-
its always wind up going to support the very terrorists
against whom we're supposed to be waging an endless war.
By their own admission, proponents of the new energy
plan admit that it will do nothing to reduce our dependence
on oil and will have no effect on prices at the pump, at least
not in the foreseeable future. The new plan will cost Ameri-
cans about $11 billion dollars over a 10-year period.
So what does the energy plan do? You'll be pleased to know
that. it provides $3 billion dollars in tax-break incentives for
the big oil and gas companies despite the fact that these
same companies are enjoying history-making, record-break-
ing profits this year.
Massachusetts Congressman Ed Markey pulled no
punches in his statement following the plan's passage when
he said, "It is politically and morally wrong for the United
States Congress to come to this floor to pass legislation which
will take money from the American taxpayers to hand over
to the corporations who are now charging $2.30, $2.40, $2.50,
$2.60 at the pump to American consumers and recording
the largest profits in history."
Here's another little surprise that was tucked away in-
side the 1,725-page document a provision that provides a
$50 million-dollar-a-year spending account for 10 years
(that's $500 million to you and me) for research.into ultra-
deep water oil drilling...where?... in the Gulf of Mexico!
Not only that although officially any oil company can
apply for the money, a consortium, including Haliburton,
located in controversial Senator Tom Delay's district, is con-
sidered the leading contender.
Opponents of the bill say that this provision was "snuck"
into the bill early last Tuesday morning after negotiators

had reached final agreement on the bill. However, Texas
Rep. Joe Barton, a former petroleum engineer, now the chair-
man of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, de-
fended the introduction of the provision. "People may dis-
agree whether the provision is needed or not, but.there
should be no disagreement that it was put into the bill in an
open and fair process..."
The other major component of the bill is that it sets aside
billions of dollars for the revitalization of the nuclear power
industry.
Wait a minute. Completely aside from the fact that nuclear
waste material is so toxic and deadly that there isn't a truly
safe place on the planet to dispose of the stuff, didn't our
own government's recent study on existing nuclear power
plants reveal that they are prime targets for terrorists be-
cause the security is almost ridiculously easy to overcome?
And nowwe're going to build more? That's a joke in search
of a punchline.
Of course, not all of the bill is dividedbetween Big Oil and
bigger nuclear power. There is a thin vernier of alternative
fuel options. For instance, buyers of hybrid cars will get a
small tax credit. The eventual development of hydrogen fu-
els was mentioned again. The bill also provides for more
corn-based ethanol for use in gasoline, but there is no direc-
tive for automobile makers to extend mileage in American-
made cars, trucks or SUVs.
There's was also no mention of bio-fuels based on
renewables like soybeans. They say the emissions will be
too great. Greater than nuclear power plants? Are you kid-
ding?
Can you imagine the impact on our nation of struggling
homestead. farmers who could start growing soybeans for,
our fuel and save their farms while they save America from
domination by OPEC countries and their links to terrorist
networks?
I realize that Willie Nelson might have to stop doing those
Live Farm-Aid concerts, but I bet 01' Willie would be will-
ing to make the sacrifice. Maybe he could do some Live-
Sheik-Aid concerts instead.
I know that the administration's energy bill squeaked by
the House and sailed through the Senate, but I'm one Ameri-
can who thinks.we were sold out...once again.
Next thing you know, they're going to be opening up frag-
ile wildlife preserves to oil drillers and opening the Giant
Sequoia National Forest to loggers!
Uhh...whoops.


.It is obvious to a novice like me that the nex 'bi.'g "stodr-i
will probably get our house and many more. The next will
get those behind us and then next thing you know, it will
be on 30-A forward to Hwy. 98 and the bay. In some parts
of the beach, the twenty/thirty foot cliffs is all that stand
to protect those areas now.
In the more than thirty years the Woodham family has
owned our home on the beach, storms like Opal, Ivan and
Dennis have taken away sixty feet or more of gorgeous sand
dunes covered with unreal seaoats and other lush growth
that has protected beachside homes thus far.
Our son-in-law, Randall Pinkston, married to our daugh-
ter, Cindy, is an engineer with the Southern Company (Ala-
bama, Gulf Power companies).. They spent the weekend
with us at the beach and he said the cliff ought to be lined
with a synthetic type material which allows water to seep
through but holds the sand., Form a barrier with boul-
ders/rip-rap and pump sand on top of that to create dunes
thereby providing the aesthetic view. This is a fix used at
Lake Martin, which Pinkston says works very well.
Sounds like a brilliant idea to me. Beachfront residents
could pitch in enough money to pay for the boulders, etc to
establish the barriers.
Thanks to the tourist trade, Walton County is certainly
no longer one of the poorest in the state but that could be
wiped out with another storm or two...

CONCERNING THE LIFEGUARD situation on Wal-
ton County beaches, the county shouldn't be expected to
foot the bill alone. The businesses which stand to profit the
most from tourist trade condos, hotels/motels and res-
taurants should be willing to partner with county offi-
cials to offset that tremendous responsibility. I can see the
county furnishing life guards for the pubic accesses along
Walton County Beaches, but the entire stretch No Way!

ACCOLADES to the DeFuniak Springs Garden Club for
the tremendous improvement made to the downtown area.
I know the; DeFuniak Springs Herald/Breeze, has pub-
lished features acknowledging your untiring efforts but I
want to add my thank you for the beauty you have created
with the flowers beds at the DFS Historic Library, the De-
pot, the
Chautauqua Auditoriumand numerous other endeavors.
As one drives into town from the beach by way of the
library, the

taking. I

Editor:
The recent ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court in the case
of Kelo v. City of New London is the worst decision the court
has ever made. The possibilities for unintended conse-
quences are staggering. (Judge Souter, take note!) Some
have placed it on par with the Dred Scott decision. Although
the Scott case legitimized an abhorrent institution, it also
affirmed property rights.
The Kelo/New London decision is a direct assault on the
constitution. It is little wonder that Marxists have stated
that Communism will rise from the ashes and assume world
domination without firing a shot. Decisions such as the rul-
ing on property rights lend credence to this pronouncement.
When you have the guardians unlocking the castle gates,
why launch a frontal assault?

Editor,
Would someone please inform Mr. Ray Padgett that the
general election last November didn't go to suit him.
John Kerry lost and George Bush won. Liberals are known
to copy and paste letters from George Soro's site "Move
on.org." That's the thing about these liberals they always
need someone what to think and what to write.
Come on, lets have an original thought, think hard!

Editor:
Congratulations are in order for the Board of County
Commissioners. At their last meeting, they approved a rec-
ommendation offered by Commissioner RoCuchens that will
benefit county residents and tourists alike. Commissioner
Cuchens requested the body approve the establishment of
an ad hoc committee to begin work to have the Basin Bayou
State Recreation Area reopened. The park is located on
Choctawhatchee Bay, a couple of miles east of Basin
Bayou off Hwy 20. The access is blocked off from public ac-
cess.
Up until 1984 when it was closed, the park was operated
by state. To reopen the park, it will take the combined effort
of county, state, and federal agencies. Of course a strong
citizen interest will help push the project along.
To my knowledge, there is no public facility on the bay in
Walton County that offers overnight camping.with the visual
amenities of a well-run park. When I used to visit the park
in the 60s and 70s, there were utilities, bath and restroom
facilities, and a state park ranger. The bay was open to swim--
ming that was protected by a concrete bulkhead out in the
bay to break up heavy wave action. Day-users and campers
enjoyed the relaxing feel of the bay breeze while keeping
cool under the huge oaks. Moms, pops, and the kids enjoyed
the white sand beach.
Today there is great interest in the environment with edu-
cation and preservation of native plants, and exposure 'o
hiking trails and nature walks. All of this can'become ieal-
ity again but even in a grander presentation than years gone
by.
The Basin Bayou State RecreationArea will provide a much
needed public recreation resource as huge housing neigh-
borhoods are developed north of the bay. The Commission
action to begin the park process is forward thinking and
proactive. Congratulations to all for stepping out front to
meet the future.

Dear Editor,

First let me make it clear that I am in full agreement that
the beach front property owners have the right to secure
their homes and properties. However, this should and can
be done with the integrity to preserve and co-exist with our
fragile eco-system. We must all work together to make sure
that the homes and properties are protected while estab-
lishing a renoureshment and sustainable living for all in-
volved, man and creature.
The travesty that is occurring at Blue Mountain Beach
and maybe elsewhere must stop before it is too late. I would
ask the county commissioners to please address this situa-
tion as an emergency. The materials being used at Blue
Mountain Beach are not conducive to sustainable
living. While these homeowners are panicking to secure their
properties, they are essentially destroying their own prop-
erty values while harming all other life forms along the
way. The fact of the matter is we all make our living from
the beaches. Our area, as you all know, is based on its beau-
tiful beaches. Our businesses, and hence our tax base, comes
and goes with the tourist seasons. The beach brings us our
economy. Placing brown dirt, red clay and other non per-
mitted materials on our beaches will' do nothing but dam-
age our own existence. We in a sense are constructing our
destruction.
How silly is it for human kind to think this behavior will
benefit us. Our beaches and its wildlife have as much or
more right to be preserved as we the people have to use
them. It seems as if our approval process and lack of proper
enforcement here is solely for the immediate fix and the
immediate dollar. It all makes perfect sense expressed in
dollars and cents. However, this inappropriate and tragic
measure to preserve and protect is only going to destroy
. and neglect. Let's make sure the rebuilding /reinforcing pro-
cess helps the situation and does not negatively impact our
area when the next storm hits. This quick fix will only wash
out and therefore destroy our eco-system when the next
storm arrives.


Once again, I am in favor of allowing individuals the op-
portunity to protect their dwellings, but make them do it
the proper way. Commissioners, please place a stop order
today at Blue Mountain Beach and elsewhere. Let's get to-
gether to come up with a unified plan of protection; one that
takes into account all involved, the homeowners, the beach
goers and the wildlife.
Please take the time to travel to Blue Mountain Beach
today. It might be your last time to see it before it forever
becomes Brown Mountain Beach.
Sincerely,
Ed Berry
Santa Rosa Beach, FL.

Florida kids receive

Medicaid waiver


Florida Department of
, Health (DOH) Deputy Secre-
tary and State Health Officer
for Children's Medical Ser-
':vices (CMS), Joseph Chiaro,
';M.D., announced that
SFlorida has been awarded a
ji federal waiver from the Cen-
Sters for Medicare and Medic-
Said Services for its Program
for All-inclusive Care- for
Children (PACC), an innova-
i tive program based on a
! model of care developed by
SChildren's Hospice Interna-
Stional (CHI) for children with
Slife-limiting conditions and
their families. Florida is the
first state to receive a Med-
Sicaid waiver for this program.
SFlorida's PACC program is
called Partners In Care-To-
gether for Kids (PIC), a pro-
gram that offers hospice-type
support services designed
especially for children diag-
nosed with life-threatening
illnesses.
The PIC program's pri-
mary goal is to provide addi-
tional support to patients
and families coping with a
life-threatening illness. PIC
services include pain and


symptom management,
therapeutic counseling, ex-
pressive therapies for young
children, respite, specialized
nursing and personal care.
The waiver will bypass cur- ,
rent federal law that restricts
terminally ill patients from
receiving hospice care until
the last six months of life.
Through PIC, families with
children receiving active
medical treatment or cura-
tive care will be able to re-
ceive an overlay of hospice-
type support services at any
time following diagnosis. By
providing early and con-
tinual intervention and con-
sistent supportive care, the
frequency of hospital admis-
sions:for these children may
be reduced, while the quality
of life for the child and fam-
ily is increased.

Heat wave

precautions for pets


Walton County Emergency
Response Director Ed
Baltzley wants to remind citi-
zens about care of pets dur-
ing a heat wave. "Due to the
recent high temperatures
and high heat index, we
would urge the public to ex-
ercise extreme caution with
your pets. When at home
make sure your pets have
shelter and plenty of fresh:
water available for them to
drink at all times.
"We would recommend
that if you must take your pet
with you while traveling lo-
cal or long distance that you
make sure that it has plenty
of ventilation and that you
take along plenty of water
making sure it is available to.
your pet at all times.
"Never under any ciicum-
stances leave your pet unat-
tended in a vehicle whether
inside or in the bed of a pick-
up truck."
According to Baltzley, it
only takes a few minutes for
an animal to become over
heated and become sick or
even die.
By following these simple
suggestions you and your pet
will spend many more hot


summers together safely.
Walton County Animal
Control has stopped all trap-
ping of animals until further
notice because of the high
temperatures and high heat
index. No animal control
traps will be issued until the
temperatures drop to more
normal conditions. Animal
Control also strongly sug-
gests that private trapping
cease at this time.
If you have any questions
please call Walton County
Animal Control at 892-8682.

The Child Advocate

By JULIE HURST
executive director
Emerald Coast Children's Advocacy Center
Another month has come and gone. The children will be
back in school soon very shortly. If your child is anything
like mine, he puts up his hand and says 'I don't want to talk
about it' and walks away. Summer is a wonderful opportu-
nity to bond with your children and a time to relax no
homework, no timelines, no early bed times not only for
the children but for us parents, too. I'm not quite sure I'm
ready.
Although school is starting, there is still time for lots of
summer fun on the weekends Big Kuhanas, the beach (bar-
ring anymore storms), the zoo and swimming pools. Sum-
mer fun typically includes water related activities.
Safety can be a life or death situation. Just prior to Hurri-
cane Dennis, Cindy and Arlene, the Emerald Coast
Children's Advocacy Center collaborated with partners De-
partment of Children and Families, Okaloosa and Walton
County Sheriff's Office, YMCA, Okaloosa and Walton County
Code Enforcement to develop and create a "Drowning Pre-
vention" brochure offering tips to help keep our children
safe around water. Our intent was to share this informa-
tion at the onset of summer or somewhere in close proxim-
ity via the media like the wonderful Defuniak Herald. How-
ever, we know all too well, hurricanes don't care about
timelines.
Living in northwest Florida, these life-saving water safety
rules are applicable almost year round. Anyone can be at
risk for drowning. However, children ages four and under
are particularly vulnerable and account for approximately
300 drowning deaths each year in the United States. While
many children drown in backyard pools, numerous others
fall victim to ponds, creeks, bathtubs and even toilets.
Here are some tips you can follow to help keep you and
your children safe from harm. Practice the ABC's of water
safety (A) adult supervision; (B) Barriers can help fences,
alarms, door locks out of reach; (C) classes adult CPR
classes can help prepare for an emergency and often make
the difference between life and death.
Utilize other general water safety tools around pools. Keep
toys and other items of interest away from pool or water
area. Install a fence that is at least four feet high and less
than two inches off the ground around all four sides of your
pool. Make sure the gate latch is not in reach of children.
Keep rescue equipment near poolside. If possible, place a
phone near the pool for emergencies.
These tips can help save a life. To get a copy of the bro-
chure in its entirety, please contact the CAC at 833-9237,
ext. 222.
We would like to thank Tri-State Industries, Inc. and the
Okaloosa and Walton County Sheriff's Office for their fi-
nancial contribution toward production of the brochure. A
special thanks to Tom Dunn and Dawn Mangum of the CAC
for their work on this project. Last, but of course not least, a
thank you to the DeFuniak Herald and Beach Breeze for ;
allowing us to again share information to help protect our
children. Enjoy the rest of the summer and continue to do
your part to keep our children safe!

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 4, 2005


3 I 06

Editor,
I would like to comment on the Walton County Fire Res-
cue. Not many people know this, but the Walton County
Fire Rescue was brought up before the Walton County Fire
Board and was turned down. It was turned down for sev-
eral reasons. One reason was because of the insurance. They
found out that it would cost more to combine all of the de-
partments' insurance together. The next reason was that
independent fire district wanted to keep control of their fire
districts in the hands of the citizens. In an independent dis-
trict, you can vote on an increase of taxes. These are only a
couple of reasons. After the Walton County Fire Rescue was
turned down, they then went to the Walton County Board
of Commissioners and was approved.
One of the departments that first went into the program
was only running about 25 to 50 calls a year while other full
volunteer fire departments were running 125-plus calls. I
had no problem with there being advance life support (ALS),
units in those areas. The reason for the ALS units was be-
cause it took so long for an ambulance to get there so they
could transport the patient. But the ALS units that are in
those areas now are fire engines, which are not capable of
transporting a patient. It was brought up to put a Walton
County ambulance in those areas. When asked, they said
they could not afford to pay for an EMT and paramedics to
man those ambulances. But now the Walton County Fire
Rescue is already talking about putting a paramedic and'
EMT in those spots. So why can it not be through the Wal-
ton County EMS? Both organizations are being paid by the
county.
At first, the independent fire departments were told they
had nothing to worry about; their money they get annually
would not be taken away. I know I saw in the paper last
week that someone would not comment on the subject. So
my question is are the independent district's legs going to
be cit out from underneath them? It seems like every time
the independent districts ask, they get the same response,,
"I cannot answer that question". I am sorry if the phrase
'cutting the legs out from under them' seems harsh, butwith-
out any answers the independent districts do not know how
to prepare for the future. If you are wondering why inde-
pendent districts are worried about this, it's because two
independent districts applied for a new fire engine and an-
other a used fire engine both were denied. One of those fire
departments has thirty and forty-year-old trucks that are'
in much need of being replaced.
Other departments that are.going with the Walton County
Fire Rescue applied for new trucks and got them. They say
it's not a hostile take-over, but by the way it looks, it's going
to be. I keep hearing about how this is going to save so much
money, but with the payroll, impact fees, new trucks, and
two new stations with living quarters, I don't see where the
savings are coming from. If EMS could put an ambulance in
those stations and all volunteer fire departments could get
better recruitment and retention plans provided by the
county, they could save some money. It could be a simple


little thing as an incentive plan. Most volunteer fire depart- s-.
ments don't get paid a dime for doing their job or merchan- .
dise for going to so many calls. I am not saying that I do not *r 11
want the Walton County Fire Rescue to succeed, but I live
in an independent district and I think that an independent 1 ^ '_
district should receive the same amount of money that the I '.
Walton County Fire Rescue is getting so that independent
districts can provide the same level of protection. Just be- ''
cause volunteer is on the front of the fire department name I *
does not mean that there are no certified people in those I Oi7i "
organizations. L

Walton County Board of
County Commissioners


The Walton County Parks and Recreation Department offers an array of organized
activities for children and families. They also maintain 16 county-owned park fa-
cilities as well as one state-owned property at Morrison Spring.

Organized recreational programs are available throughout the year. During the
summer months, a children's recreation program is offered. Children interact and
engage in numerous organized activities in a supervised setting throughout the day.
At summer's end, soccer begins for children between the ages of 4 and 13 for a
nominal fee. The soccer program is offered in Paxton, DeFuniak Springs, Freeport,
and South Walton. Also, at other times during the year, baseball and basketball are
offered. For each program, coaches and volunteers are always needed. Contact
Brad Alford or Tammy Bradley to volunteer by calling 892-8703. Please remem-
ber, interested parties must submit to a background check in order to work with
children.

For those who prefer independently organized recreation, facilities are maintained
throughout the county in order to provide every resident with an opportunity for
outdoor enjoyment. Hiking is available at Florida's highest point, located at Lake-
wood, with well-marked, color-coded trails. Boating is also available at various
launch points along the Choctawhatchee Bay and River. Other opportunities -
abound for a day of fun at each facility. Inquires regarding these facilities can
be made directly to Parks and Recreation by calling 892-8703 or by visiting

ACTION
FROM FRONT
narcotics possession and'
Trespassing.
On January 27, 2005, a
warrant was issued by Cir-
cuit Court Judge Kelvin C.
Wells ordering the arrest of
Burns, for probation viola-
tion.

The warrant recites that on
January 18,2005. Burns was
placed on probation for pos-
session of cocaine, trespass,
resisting arrest without vio-
lence, and possession of drug
paraphernalia.
Burns was allegedly in vio-.
lation by having failed to re-
port to his probation officer,
and by changing his resi-
dence without his probation.




BUDGET

$6 million for a new elemen-
S tary school, the site of which
S is still the. subject of much
debate among board mem-
bers. $3.7 million has been
allocated for the new Paxton
gymnasium with $2 million
S earmarked for the initial,
costs for a new Walton High
School.
McCall's proposed budget
included an excellent display
of what it takes to run a.
school district. For example,
80 buses are required to
S transport 4,605 students per
day, traveling 1.3. million
miles per year in the county.
Seven schools provide home-
school liaison with 33 teacher
/assistants, specialized in-
struction, and parents con-
tracts and training. Sixteen
S school sites house 6,420 stu-
S dents with 13 managed by
the district with two charter
schools and one Department
of Juvenile Justice facility.-
There are 922 full and part-
time employees with 447
teachers, 37 administrators,
and 438 non-instructional
employees. Eleven lunch-
rooms prepare 5,700 meals
S daily.
The board will hold a pub-
lic hearing to approve the fi-
nal millage and budget on
Monday, September 12.
The board also approved
trips for Freeport High
School's girls volleyball team
for the upcoming 2005 sea-


officer's consent. :
The report does not contain
reference to any arrests or
charges of violent offenses.
Nevertheless, statements
were made by two Walton
County corrections officers,
Joshua Martin and William
Rushing. Their statements
indicate that Burns, while in-
carcerated and under the in-
fluence of drugs, exhibited
"disruptive behavior" and
acted "crazy," haviag,_to re-
strained or isolated.
The report concludes that
Stafford and his family were
"in a perilous situation," and
that Stafford "exhausted all
other options before firing a
weapon."

Superintendent Carlene
Anderson stated that Emer-
ald Coast Middle School is
,expected to be open for the
first day of school on Friday
and that district personnel
would be at various schools
throughout the county to
welcome students back for

Local businessman Luther
Ates spoke before the board

.. .,. While Parks and Recreation maintains most recreational I
facilities in the county, some are maintained by the
Tourist Development Council, including the beach
wa Ikox ers in South Walton. Inquiries regarding these facii ee Care Park on Walton Road

by calling 267-1216.

Are there any public swimming facilities? -.

In collaboration with the City of Freeport and the YMCA, Parks and Recreation now offers access to a public
swimming pool located behind the Fieeport City Hall on State Road 20. It is only open during the summer
months. The cost is $1.00 for 3 hours. A lifeguard is on duty. For more information and for hours of opera-
tion, dial 835-2574.

The recreation area at Morrison Spring also offers excellent swimming in frigid, crystal
clear waters. Swimming is free here, but there is no lifeguard on the premises. Swim-
mers share these waters'with SCUBA divers, who also have free access to the park. The
park is open every day during daylight hours.. Morrison Springs ,


Where can I launch my boat in Walton County?
l Walton County has miles of waterways stretching from the Alabama
line to the white sands of the beaches. Many of these are ideal for ..
canoeing, kayaking, fishing, or waterskiing.

Lake Jackson, which forms a portion of the Florida-Alabama border, is one of the
area's most popular lakes for waterskiing. The lake is also ideal for fishing. This
500-acre lake is accessible from a county-owned boat launch located off of Lake Road. Lake Jackson

Lake Juniper. in the central portion of the county, offers some of the most excellent fishing anywhere. The
665-acre manmade lake is frequently restocked by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
Hundreds of submerged trees, which provide important animal habitat, also contribute greatly to the productiv-
ity of the fishery. However, these obstacles make activities such as waterskiing or power boating impossible.
Boaters should use extra caution on this lake to avoid underwater obstructions. Those wishing to fish these
waters can launch from either Cat Island Park, located at the end of Cat Island Road off of SR-83, or from Ju-
niper Lake Park, which can be found at the lake's dam on Juniper Lake Road, also off of SR-83.

Comparable fishing can also be found on the Choctawhatchee River in eastern Walton County. The river
winds its way south from Alabama, forming dozens of lakes, swamps, and sloughs along the way. Countless
varieties of freshwater fish can be caught along the river. The most popular access points are found off of SR-
81 on River Road and Dead River Road. However, many other access points also exist. Please contact Parks
and Recreation for.a complete list of launches.

Eventually, the river empties into the Choctawhatchee Bay, an important estuarine ecosystem in the county's
southern region. The bay offers opportunities for almost any type of water recreation. The most convenient
launches are located at the foot of the Clyde B. Wells Bridge on US-331.

Lance Richbourg: DeFuniak


Springs' I
By BOB JAYE, JR
Summer's dog days have
arrived, and the nation's
sports fans have focused their
attention squarely on base-
ball. Decades ago; that atten-
tion would have encompassed
a gentleman from DeFuniak
Springs, Lance Richbourg.
A few years ago, I read a
book titled "Baseball in
Florida," written by
University of Florida English
professor Kevin McCarthy.
One of the appendices listed
all Major Leaguers to date of
publication who had been
born in the state, and in what
town they were born.
The words "DeFuniak
Springs" jumped right off the
page at me.
Lance Richbourg was born
in what best passes for my
hometown in 1897. I went to
the .Baseball Encyclopedia
and was thrilled to discover
that he had spent the major-
ity of his eight-year big
league career in a Braves
albeit Boston) uniform.
I began to research.
Imagine my excitement when
I learned he was signed off of
a college team by the old New
York Giants in 1919 when
they held spring training in
Gainesville, FL. Lance
Richbourg was the first
Florida Gator to -become a
professional athlete.
So, let's review. This guy
played for my high school, my
college, and my favorite pro-
fessional sports franchise. You
see where this is going? I
loved him!
Anyway, I dug deeper.
Richbourg was traded to the
Philadelphia Phillies for the
legendary Casey Stengel. It
wasn't a straight-up trade,
just part of a multi-player
deal, but still impressive.
After a brief stint' with the
Phils in 1921 (10 games five'
at-bats) he was sent back
down to the minor leagues
but didn't immediately go.


big league legacy


Instead, he returned to the
University of Florida to com-
plete his education and
coached the baseball team for
the '22 and '23 seasons, also
playing minor-league ball. He
was back in the Major
Leagues for another cup of
coffee in '24, this time with
the Washington Senators in
the year they won the World
Series. He didn't play in it
though, being sent out after
only 15 games.
Lance stuck in the bigs in
1927 (he coached UF again in
'26). He played five seasons in
right field (mostly) for the
Braves. His 166 singles in '28
is tied for 58th best all-time.
He set a Major League record
by playing all 18 innings of a
doubleheader without one
fielding chance on May 14,
1927. He is still tied for the
record for triples in a game
after hitting three on July 27,
1929. He had tremendous
speed, and would participate
in foot races with other ath-
letes to help sell tickets to
ball games (as noted in the
book "Incredible Baseball
Feats" by Jim Benagh).
Richbourg had a .308 life-
time batting average in the
Major Leagues. His .311 as a
Boston Brave ranks 4th all-
time for a team that existed
more than 70 years. The top
two guys are in the Hall of
Fame.
Despite his success on the
diamond and the extensive
travel that resulted,
Richbourg's heart apparently
never strayed far from
DeFunliak Springs and the
Florida Panhandle. His
Florida Gator baseball teams
took the field here against the
Palmer College nine in the
20s, winning all four games
played.
An account of two games is
among no less than four
front-page articles about
baseball published in the
newspaper The Breeze on


April 13, 1922. That choice of
page-one stories provides a
glimpse of baseball's impor-
tance to small-town America,
and particularly to DeFuniak
Springs, in that era. College
baseball, factory teams, con-
struction of a new ballpark
and the new posting of
National and American
League scores at a local drug
store were all front-page
news.
When his big league career
ended with one season as a
Chicago Cub (1932, the only
year he would wear a uniform
number as a Major Leaguer,
as they were just coming into
vogue), Richbourg embarked
on a second tour of minor
league baseball, this one long
and storied as both player
and manager. The majority of
this time was spent with the
Nashville'Vols.
His minor league career
was a colorful one. Patrolling
right field in Nashville in
those days meant contending
with a large hill, a 45-degree
incline that began some 235
feet from home plate and
extended to a plateau 10 feet
in front of the right field
fence. One reporter noted
that Richbourg played right
field like a mountain goat.
Apparently, and fortunately,
no nickname was derived
from that comment. In the
fall of 1933, while managing a
barnstorming team' in Mexico
City, Richbourg was struck in
the face by Cuban umpire
Senor Hernandez while argu-
ing a call at home plate.
Doubtlessly, L a n c e
Richbourg played a roll in
organizing the March 19,
1936 exhibition game played
in DeFuniak Springs, pitting
his Vols against his original
baseball employer, the New
York Giants. The Giants were
led by Hall of Fame manager
Bill Terry. The, game was
played as the two teams
barnstormed north after


spring training.
It was the first game ever
played at Harbeson Field,
perhaps demonstrating
Richbourg's civic-inindness,
and was the source of a great
deal of fanfare, according to
several issues of The
DeFuniak Herald. The game
was billed in The Herald as
the biggest sport event in the
history of West Florida and
DeFuniak Springs, with the
largest crowd that has
attended a sport event in this
city since the old time Florida
Chautauqua.
Although the big leaguers
beat their minor league oppo-
nents handily, The Herald
reported that the crowds
were a Richbourg crowd
because "Lance is a home boy
and all of us know him."
Acting as player/manager,
Richbourg scored seven runs
in a regular-season game the
next month while' pushing
age 40.
Retiring from baseball in


stages, Lance Richbourg was
player/manager/owner of the
Crestview Braves in 1947,
when they won the semi-pro
Interstate League regular-
season title only to lose the
playoffs to none other than
the DeFuniak Eagles.
Richbourg was almost 50
years old and playing first
base. His teammates included
his younger brother, Clint,
who some believe is responsi-
ble for naming Walton High
School's sports teams Braves
in a name-that-team contest
when he was in school. Also
on the team was Neal Cobb, a
future minor-leaguer whose
.432 batting average led all
professional players in 1954;
and John Lawson, who would
become mayor of DeFuniak
Springs.
Incidentally, the DeFuniak
Eagles 1947 roster also fea-
tured a future mayor of
DeFuniak Springs, John
Frank Bludworth.
Much later, Richbourg was


Superintendent of Okaloosa
County Schools for two terms
and was instrumental in
establishing Okaloosa-Walton
Junior college. A middle
school in Crestview is named
for him. He served in the
Navy near the end of World
War I. He was also a success-
ful rancher.
Lance Richbourg is argua-
bly the most accomplished
athlete from the area. He is
the only Walton County
native, the only Walton High
player, to ever face Major
League pitching. Other ath-
letes receive greater recogni-
tion, probably due to the
length of time since
Richbourg's stellar career and
the more immediate avail-
ability of information regard-
ing recent performance, but
the record is clear. I believe
Lance Richbourg was not only
a great athlete, but also a
great American and a native
son who should be celebrated
by DeFuhiak Springs.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 4, 2005


Soltis celebrates 97th birthday


The congregation of Emer-
ald Coast Lutheran Church
and her family members
from Illinois enjoyed a happy
birthday party to
honor Virginia Soltis on her
97th birthday, on July
31. She nows lives in the
Manor at-Buewater Bay,
but before that resided at
Crystal Bay in 'Sandestin,
and was brought to
church by her good friend,
Maryanne Somers, ECLC
member.
Soltis was born in 1908 in
Wyandotte County, KS. just
outside of Kansas City, KS,
to Ida Kitchen Allen and
Russell Allen, a finisher/


woodworker.
In 1957, Virginia met
Frank Soltis, a Catholic.
Daughter Patty lives in
Niceville; son David died of a
massive heart attack in
1999. Virginia is the proud
grandmother of 7, great-
grandmother of 16, and very
very proud great-great-
grandmother of Madison.
Grandson Jeremy Streif
traveled from Mt. Olive, Illi-
nois, and granddaughter Pam
and husband Randy Patridge
from Sawyerville, Illinois, to
join Virginia on her 97th
birthday.
When asked what her se-
cret is for such a long and


happy life, Virginia empha-
sized she has always had an
active church life. "We were
poor, but had loving parents
who taught us to be kind to
everyone, and especially re-
spect our elders. Don't live a
false life, live as 'you
believe!" Her only regret was
not keeping a journal, as she
has witnessed many firsts in
the 20th century. She espe-
cially recalls the hardships as
a child during the depression
and the dust bowls. But she
emphasizes that those were
good lessons that taught her
and her siblings to love and
appreciate each other anid
the good times.

THE CLASS OF 1975 recently held their 30-year reunion at Hotel DeFuniak. Some of
these Walton High School graduates travelled great distances to gather for this celebration,
others did not have so far to'go. The much-celebrated Class of '75produced at least one
doctor, a registered nurse, a bank manager, a development consultant, two school princi-
pals, a mental health counselor, at least one school teacher and numerous business owners.
How many faces can you recognize?

with local beauty queens during a recent visit to Stanley
House. Front left to right-Melodiann Dier, John McDonald
and Savannah Beaver; back I to r-Ashley Nance, Allie Alford,
and Devero Bogart.


Although the summer
thunderstorm draped a veil of
gloom outside, the residents
of Stanley House and their
young Friday guests share a
cheerful morning getting to
know each other, baking
chocolate chip cookies and
assembling ice cream sand-
wiches. Ashley Nance-2005

niak Springs, Devero Bogart-
2005 Junior Miss Walton
County, Savannah Beaver-
2005 Young Miss Walton
County, Melodiann Nicole
Dier-2005 Little Miss Walton
County and members of their
families had a wonderful ex-
perience visiting with the
Stanley House occupants and
hearing about their life expe-
riences.


Former DeFuniak Springs
Mayor, John Angus
McDonald impressed the
young women with his many
community and political ac-
complishments, in spite of an
impoverished childhood. He
shared his wit and wisdom
about how to achieve's one
dreams with Ashley Nance
and Allie Alford, who are be-
ginning to make important
choices in their lives. The lo-
cal beauty queens were also
entertained by Margaret
Wooten's anecdotes from her
many years as a Walton

The Friday visit was such
a success that the five title
holders hope to make a re-
turn visit with other local

On being a Christian citizen


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

Recall the lines of Psalm 16:6: "The lines have fallen unto
me in pleasant places; yea, I have a godly heritage." All
American citizens should do all in their power to continue
the civic and religious heritage which has fallen to us by the
grace of God. I do not mean that all is perfect, but Chris-
tians will not find a more nearly perfect place to live for Christ
than here.

It is our duty to share sound Christian knowledge through-
out the land. A republic cannot exist where there is not Chris-
tian knowledge. Here in America the people have a great
say at the polls in what goes on in our government, so we
should be prayerfully interested in how we vote.

We have an opportunity for missions in our very commu-
nities. People from all over the world come here for what is
called the "American dream." Let us help them know it by
telling them of Christ. Men went to South America seeking
gold. People came to America seeking God. Let those who
come now find a people willing to share Him.

It is our Christian duty to do all in our power to do all that
we can to build up the moral character of the.people about
us. The heart as well as the head needs cultivation. "Righ-
teousness exalteth a nation." The holders of the destiny of a
nation like ours.should be moral as well as intelligent. They


should be Christian. As Thomas Jefferson once wrote, "The
God who gave us life gave us liberty at the same time." Let
us share the Christian life.
In Christ's name, and under the sign of the cross, we shall
continue as a nation and be victorious in our efforts to re-
main free. It is the duty of an American citizen to recognize
the God of the nations through Christ, whd has given us our
"godly heritage," and to exalt the banner of true Christian-
ity. And God bless America!

Why Your
Failure Doesn't
Have To Be Final
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC
Sponsored by T.P. Motors
You've stumbled spiritually, and you could go down
and stay down. Or you could because of the kind of
Savior Jesus is- get up and go on to a stunning finish.
Peter stumbled big-time. In the hours just before
Jesus was arrested, tortured, and executed, Simon Pe-
ter pledged that he would follow his Lord to prison and
to death.
Jesus said, in essence, "No, you won't. You will deny
me three times in the next few hours before the rooster
crows." Sadly, that's exactly what Peter did when Jesus
needed him most. This man who had made such bold
promises about his commitment to Jesus wouldn't even
admit to a little girl that he even knew Jesus.
The Bible says that Jesus was led through the place
where Peter was going down spiritually and "the Lord
turned and looked straight at Peter." That rooster
crowed and Peter "went outside and wept bitterly" (Luke
22:62). It was over or so it looked. He had stumbled
majorly.
'Now fast forward only a few weeks later to the streets
of Jerusalem on the Day of Pentecost. In our word for
today from the Word of God in Acts 2, beginning with
verse 14, the Bible says, "Peter stood up with the Eleven,
raised his voice and addressed the crowd ... 'Let all Is-
rael be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom
you crucified, both Lord and Christ'" (verse 36). Man,
what boldness! That day God used Peter's sermon to
move 3,000 people to come to Jesus. Peter went on to
run an amazing race for Jesus, all the way to his
martyr's death for his Lord.
That same Jesus wants to pick you up from your fall
and enable you to run an amazing race for Him. The
devil's lie is that it's over; you failed and it's no use try-
ing to go on with Jesus.
But, Peter's comeback is living proof that your fail-
ure doesn't have to be final if you'll do what he did. Re-
alize how much your sin is hurting your Savior and re-
pent of what you've done with all your heart. Let your
sin break your heart.
Then, accept the forgiveness that He died to give you'
for that sin. And surrender to Jesus for whatever He
wants you to do for Him, opening yourself up to a total
Holy Spirit takeover. Let your stumble lead to surren-
der not surrender to your failure but to your Savior.
And let that surrender give birth to a holy determina-
tion to take some serious spiritual revenge on the devil
by making him sorry he ever tried to bring you down.
A stumble can lead to a tragic and even permanent
fall. Or it can set the stage for a stunning victory. Get
up, get back into the race, and go on to an even more
glorious victory!
See you this Lord's Day! 8:45a.m. Sunday School;
9:45a.m. Worship.


Wilson

Walton High names coaches


BY PATRICK CASEY
Walton High School added
two new coaches last week as
Principal Mike Davis hired a
new volleyball and baseball
coach. Terry Cadenhead will
replace Charlie Morse as
baseball coach this year while
Marla Harrell will take over
as the new volleyball coach.
Cadenhead comes to
Walton County after serving
27 years as head coach at


Sprayberry High School in
Marietta, Georgia. He is a
Laurel Hill native and a
graduate ofBellhaven Missis-
sippi College.
Cadenhead will be the fifth
baseball coach to take the
helm of the program in the
last seven years. Scott Ates
coached the program in 2000,
with Glen Harrison taking
over from 2001-03. Alan
Ingle coached the Braves in
2004 with Morse managing


the team in 2005.
Marla Harrell replaces
Terri Jenkins as volleyball
coach with Jenkins now con-
centrating solely on basket-
ball. Harrell, a Vernon na-
tive, was a two-year volley-
ball and basketball player at
Gulf Coast Community Col-
lege. Harrell received her
bachelor's degree from the
University of West Florida-
and was a coach of the Walton
Blazers volleyball team in the


Walton Recreational League
in the spring of 2004.
Harrell will have her work
cut out for her as the Walton
Braves will have to replace
four starters from 2004. Mar-
garet Yates is the key loss in
the middle of the lineup as
Yates graduated this past
May after signing a deal to
play volleyball at Pensacola
Junior College for the next
two years.


WIND IT UP AND let it fly! That's what this pitcher from
Bayshoe did during the final round of play against Bloom-
ingdale. The 11 and 12 year-olds from Bloomingdale went on
to win the state title and advance on to southern regionals to
be held in Georgia.


DID YOU KNOW?
5 Sports Facts

1. Nine of the eleven conferences in Division
1-A college football will be using a replay
system in 2005. Only the Western Athletic
and Sun Belt conferences will not.

2. Division 1-A college football is the only
sport sanctioned by the NCAA that does not
have an official champion determined on the.
field of play.

3. The Buffalo Bills scored the most
combined defensive and special teams
touchdowns of the 32 NFL squads in 2004
with ten.

4. The Oakland A's posted a 20-6 record in
July while the Houston Astros went 22-7.
Both teams are the current leaders for the
wild-card in their respective leagues.

5. When new Walton baseball coach Terry
Cadenhead takes the field in 2006 he will
become the fourth head coach to lead the
Braves in the last four seasons.

and Notes


BY PA TRICK CASEY
Florida High has a new
head football coach as Jarrod
Hickman has been named to
replace his father, Mike
Hickman, as the Seminoles
leader. Mike, who is 57,
stepped down as Florida
High's head coach to concen-
trate on his new duties as
athletic director. He replaces
Al Blizzard as the school's
athletic director after Bliz-
zard resigned that position to
focus on teaching physical
education and coaching the
golf team at the school. Mike
Hickman was the coach of the
Florida High team that was
defeated by Walton 20-13 in
last year's first round Class
2B playoff game. His son is
26 years old and a former
football player and track ath-
lete at Florida High. He
served as offensive coordina-
tor the past three seasons and
will have 14 starters return-
ing in 2005.
Harry Jacobs is returning
to coaching as the former


FAMU High coach has ac-
cepted the job of head coach
at Jefferson County High
School. Jacobs replaces Jeff
Scha.um who left the school to
take the top job at Quincy
Munroe. Jacobs, 60, last
coached in 1999. He is the
fourth coach in as many years
at Jefferson High School
where he also serves as assis-
tant principal. Jacobs led
FAMU High to a record 17
state titles in team track also
while working for the Baby
Rattlers.
Florida State may have lost
pitcher Hunter Jones for next
season. The junior, who was
9-5 in three seasons at FSU,
is contemplating signing as a
free agent with the Boston
Red Sox. Left-hander Barret
Browning also continues to
weigh his options after being
drafted by the Colorado
Rockies. Browning is playing
this summer in Cape Cod
with Seminole teammates
Mark Sauls, Ryne Malone
and Bryan Henry.


BLOOMILGDALE 'SANGEL BEREZOWSKI gets a bunt
off the ball during the final round of the state of Florida's 11
and 12 year-old softball championship. The tournament took
place in DeFuniak Springs with the final game held on July
25.

Canes and Gators



will meet again


By CHUCK HINSON
They have gone head -to-
head for the past four out of
five years, but this year with
the changes in coaches and
conferences, the Florida Ga-
tors and the Miami Hurri-
canes have taken a break
from meeting.
The in-state rivals are
close to completing a deal
that would once again see the
rivalry spark backup. The
home-and-home series deal
is being worked on for 2008
and 2013.
First match-up for the
teams would be in 2008 when
the Hurricanes travel to the
Swamp. 'he trip to Miami
would come in 2013.
Paul Dee, athletic director
for Miami and Jeremy Foley,
athletic director for Florida,
both have said that the series
deal has been in the works for
the past year. Both directors
say that they look forward to
bringing the in-state rivalry
back to life over the next
seven to. eight years.
Florida State has played
both teams consistently for
years. Consecutive match-
ups have been more favor-
able for the Seminoles when
they played with Florida, but
more of a Miami winning-
series when they took on
Florida State.
The Seminoles have re-
ported that they have no in-
tention of taking either one of
the other Florida teams off
their roster in the upcoming
seasons. Florida State and
Miami must continue play
now that the Hurricanes
have joined the ACC Confer-
ence.
Complaints from the Gator
camp of having to travel to
Coral Gables, plus the
much-needed repairs that
the Orange Bowl Stadium
needs and the Gators' com-
plaint of obnoxious Hurri-


cane fans, have been heard
for years. In retaliation, Mi-
ami fans say that Florida
fans are just bitter after the
Hurricanes rallied from a 23-
point deficit in the third
quarter to beat the Gators in
their last match-up, 38-33.
Either way, the series is on
track to be played at both
universities stadiums, with
no neutral location dis-
cussed.
Both camps say that the in-
state match-up brings in
much needed revenue to the
hosting school. The Florida
State vs. Miami and the Flor-
ida State vs. Florida game
are always sell-outs and
bring in millions to the host-
ing school and city.
Many have asked why the
five-year span between the
games. In response, both
universities say that the
break would be good for both
teams.
Florida, who already has a
tough SEC schedule with
teams like Tennessee, Au-
burn and LSU, is in hopes
that Miami will do the
needed repairs or either find
a new sports venue before
they see each other in 2013.
Miami, meanwhile, has a
tough enough schedule over
the next few season with
Oklahoma in 2007 and 2009,
Ohio State in 2010 and 2011
and then Texas A & M in
2007 and 2008.
Miami has won six straight
games against the Gators,
including a 27-10 victory in
the Peach Bowl this past
New Year's Eve.
The winning streak is the
latest in upsets for the Ga-
tors and has heated the ri-
valry between the two teams
since they began playing
each other in 1938. The Ga-
tors dropped the Hurricanes
in 1988 because Florida
wanted to play a "more na-
tional schedule."


The 1989 season saw Mo-
tana State take the place of
Miami.
The Hurricanes struck
back and said that the Ga-
tors knocked them off the
schedule because they were
dominating the Gators on
the field and in the national
rankings and spotlight.
Despite the feelings and
attitudes of fans towards
both teams, the rivalry has
been rescheduled to resume
in 2008. With all the
changes, upsets, conference-
hopping and coach replace-
ments, the next five years
couldbe more interesting to
watch and analyze, than the
actual game itself.

REVIEW

thousands of cheering Bos-
ton Red Sox and Chicago Cub
fans.
Both players had played
for several minor and major
league teams throughout
their career, but it was their
final sprint with the Sox and
the Cubs that they are best
remembered.

Hokies favored to win
ACC: The Virginia Tech
Hokies looked proud and
hopeful at last week's ACC
press conference in Hot
Springs, VA., as the polls
were released and voters say
that they favor the Hokies
over the Miami Hurricanes
and the Florida State Semi-
noles for this year's ACC foot-
ball title. They finished in the
top two spots last year after
their surprising upset
against Miami in the last
year of the 2004 season.
Seminoles still look for

Gulf front owners applying for


permanent retaining walls


By TIANA LARSEN
The wooden retaining wall
under construction in front of
Val Aldrete's home on Blue
Mountain Beach likely would
not have gone unnoticed, but
it probably wouldn't have
generated the degree of con-
troversy it has if it weren't
for a few special circum-
stances.
The wall is being built by
Choctawhatchee Bay and
Piling, a business owned by
District 4 Commissioner Ro
Cuchens and his wife, Kasey
Cuchens and although Kasey
Cuchens told the Beach
Breeze. that each individual
homeowner that is drawing
from the mountain of sand
trucked to the public access
in Blue Mountain contracted
for the sand on their own.
Cuchens was widely blamed
for the color of the sand.
which has been dubbed
"Brown Mountain."
At an emergency Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners i BCC.1 meet-
ing held on August 1,
Cuchens said his company
doesn't ow n a sand pit or any
trucks, that he didn't tell the
county code enforcement to
approve the sand color, and
that the color was checked
three times by the county
and approved.
The wall is currently under
a stop-work order posted by
WaltonCounty Code En-
forcement on July 26. The
stop-work order states that
no back-filling behind the
wall is to take place uhtil the
concrete behind the wall, is
removed.
Although some community
members are also blaming
Cuchens for the concrete,
Aldrete told the Beach Breeze
that she placed the concrete
behind the wall because she


didn't know any better, and
that she has since had it re-
moved.
David Fowlkes, an out-of-
town visitor to Blue Moun-
tain Beach, said he was out
walking with two family
members on July 29 and saw
a gentleman with a shovel
breaking open the bags of
concrete and emptying the
contents onto the ground be-
hind the wall.
Early the following morn-
ing, Fowlkes says he saw a
man shoveling dirt or sand
on top of the loose concrete,
and that the empty bags


were no longer in sight. As of
Tuesday morning, August 2,
code enforcement had not yet
inspected the property or re-
scinded the stop-work order.
SAlthough the county com-
prehensive plan prohibits
seawalls and armoring, the
BCC decided to allow tempo-
rary structures to hold sand
intended to ,shore up homes
with endangered founda-
tions. The action was taken
at a July 11 BCC meeting,
where Aldrete told the com-
missioners she wanted a

see WALLS 16C


THIS IS THE MOUNTAIN of sand at the foot of CR83 in Blue Mountain Beach, as it
appeared on Sundday. Earlier in the week, before some of the sand was pushed in front of a
house to the east, the pile was much larger. The reddish, brownish color of the sand touched
off a controversy over how best to protect both private Gulf front property and the white
sands of the beaches of south Walton.
The furor resulted in an emergency Walton Board of County Commissioners (BCC) meet-
ing on Monday evening, where, after over three hours of heated discussion, the BCC passed
two motions concerning sand color.


Sand color chart explained


THIS RETAINING WALL under construction in Blue
Mountain Beach has been ihe source of considerable contro-
versy in the community. The contractor for the wall construc-
tion is Choctawhatchee Bay and Piling, owned by District 4
County Commissioner Rosier Cuchens. Rumors circulating
around town alleged Cuchens might have a conflict of inter-
est, since the Walton County Commission met on July 11 and
discussed temporary retaining walls for beachfront owners
wanting to protect their property.
The bags of concrete shown here were placed behind the
wall, resulting in a stop-work order from Walton County Code
Enforcement preventing backfilling behind the wall until the
concrete is removed. According to the property owner, Val
Aldrete, Cuchens had nothing to do with the concrete. She
said she placed the concrete behind the wall and has since
had it removed.

LIFEGUARDS ARE LIKELY to be making an appearance
in the near future on Walton County beaches. Despite the lo-
gistic and financial challenges of deploying life saving per-
sonnel along over 20 miles of beaches, Walton County has set
its course toward joining the communities that provide this
service, including neighboring Destin (pictured,) where an
effort coordinated by the Destin Fire Control District pro-
vides beach patrol chairs and lifeguards in designated "swim
safe" zones.


Safety

committee

in full

support of

lifeguards
By DOTTYNIST
"To talk beach safety,
you've got to talk lifeguards,"
said Sean Hughes, deputy
chief for the South Walton
Fire District and a member
of the Walton County Beach
Safety and Education Com-
mittee.
Recommendations by this
volunteer committee, created
in summer 2003, have been
well received and, for the
most part, successfully
implemented by Walton
County and the South Wal-
ton Tourist Development
Council (TDC.)
The change to the four-
color beach flag warning sys-
tem now in use, the estab-
lishment of a volunteer
Coastal Corps for beach
safety education, the place-
ment of flags on leased pri-
vate property in order to pro-
vide for more warning flags,
and the "Seemore the Safety
Crab" marketing campaign
all resulted from recommen-
dations in 2004 from this
committee.

BYTIANA LARSEN
After Hurricane Dennis
eroded sand underneath the
foundations of oceanfront
homes in south Walton, prop-
erty owners asked for and re-
ceived a relaxation of the
standards for sand color
specified in the White Sands
Protection Ordinance.
The standard for judging
what color sand is acceptable
for Walton County's beaches
is the Munsell soil color
chart. Unless they are work,
ing in the field, most people
have not seen the Munsell
chart itself, or watched the
process of determining what
Munsell value a soil or sand
sample matches.
The Beach Breeze sat in on
a meeting between Celeste
Cobena, chair of Beach to
Bay Connection, and Greg
Graham, the engineer work-
ing for Walton County who is
examining samples of sand
headed for the beach, with an
eye towards determining if
the sand passes or fails, ac-
cording to the rules.
Prior to Dennis, the rule for
sand in the White Sands Pro-
tection Zone was that it had
to be at least an "eight" on
the Munsell scale, which con-
sists of values from zero to
ten, with zero being absolute
black, and ten being absolute
white.
The ,Munsell scale, devel-
oped by the United States
Department of Agriculture
(USDA,) is actually a book
with a number of pages, be-
cause there is more to it than
black and white and the val-
ues in between.
The scale also takes into
consideration hue, which is
the relationship of a color to
red, yellow, green, blue and
purple. Value, discussed
above, indicates its lightness,
and a third dimension, called
"chroma," indicates strength
of color.
The standards for emer-
gency measures were just
changed this week from six
to a value of seven or higher,
and a chroma of one or two,
the lesser intensities of color
strength.
Graham explained that if
a wet sample were brought
in, it would be dried in the
microwave before being


checked against the chart. If
a sample does not quite meet
the standards, it will be
washed in a coffee pot to re-
move darker, finer sands, and
then dried.
After that is done, the page
with the closest hue, usually
in the reddish or yellowish
range for Walton County
soils, is chosen from the book
and the sample is compared.
It's a little like comparing
wall colors in the paint store.
Graham explained that if a
match isn't obvious, other
people will sometimes be
asked to give their opinion.
Several sand samples were
examined, including some
brought by Cobena and some
Graham had in the office.
The Beach Breeze partici-
pated in the experiment. In
one case, all three people
came up with a different
color match on the Munsell
chart; all three matches were
outside the acceptable range.
When a second sample was
examined, two people at the
table chose the same match,
while the third person chose
a different match; however,
both choices were again out-
side the acceptable range.
That particular sample fell
well within the value range
(it got two "sevens" and one
"eight,") but failed on the


chroma scale (two "fours"
and one ''three.) In other
words, it was in the lighter
range, but had too much
"color" to pass.
A third sample was judged
to be a value of five and a
chroma of four by all three
people at the table, a failing
grade. Cobena said that
sample was from Blue Moun-
tain Beach, but Graham ob-
jected, saying he did not
know where in Blue Moun-
tain the sample was ob-
tained.
"There are various layers
of sedimentation in the
bluffs, and that material will
be out there too after a
storm," Graham said.
Graham's position is that the
property owners are shoring
up underneath their -houses
with sand similar to what
was there before, and will be
capping the darker sand with
whiter sand.
Cobena, who has a
Master's degree in geology,
takes the position that the
system as a whole must be
looked at. "The dark sand
won't stay on the bottom,"
she thought. "You aren't re-
building the bluff, you're re-
building dunes," she said.
The two also differed in


see CHART 16C


THE STANDARD FOR JUDGING what color sand is ac-
ceptable for Walton County's beaches is the Munsell soil color
chart. It is actually a book with a number of pages; one of the
pages is shown here, placed on top of two different sand
samples, on a table in the county's planning and develop-
ment office, where sand samples of materials headed for the
beaches are supposed to be approved prior to placement on
the beach. If the sample matches a color on the chart within
the acceptable range it is allowed; if not, it is rejected.

Dune lake clean-up launched


By KEN LITTLE,
Walton County Public Infor-
mation Officer
A contract was awarded on
Wednesday, July 27 to
Crowder Gulf to remove de-
bris from eleven of the fifteen
coastal dune lakes in Walton
County after Hurricane Den-
nis. The contract requires the
work to be done within sixty
days. The work will begin in
Little Redfish Lake because
of the septic tank debris
blown into that lake by the
storm.
Other lakes to be cleaned
are Stallworth Lake, Allen
Lake, Oyster Lake, Draper
Lake, Big Redfish Lake, Al-
ligator Lake, Western Lake,
Eastern' Lake, Deer Lake,
and Camp Creek Lake.
The contract stipulates re-
moval and disposal of all de-
bris on the surface or visible
from the surface of the wa-
ter, and up to and including
the high water line of the
specified coastal dune lakes.
Residents living on or near
coastal dune lakes should be
aware of Crowder Gulf work-
ers operating in the lakes to
clear the debris and not im-
pede their efforts. ,They will
be clearing debris that was
deposited by the storm up to
the high water mark around
the dune lakes, but will not

be allowed to proceed further
than the high water line of
the lakes onto private prop-
erty.
Because of the urgency of
this cleanup, the workers will
begin work early each day.
They are authorized to work
during visible daylight hours
only, and may work seven
days a week to accomplish
the job.
The coastal dune lakes are
a globally-rare natural re-
source. The Coastal Dune
Lake Advisory Board, ap-
pointed by the Walton
County Commission, has pro-
vided debris removal guide-
lines as a part of the contract
to emphasize the high prior-
ity of protecting these lakes.
The guidelines provide for
minimal access points to re-
duce disturbance to shoreline
vegetation, minimizing fuel
and oil leaks from machinery,
and storage of the removed
debris away from the shore-
lines.
In other news, Walton
County's contracted debris
removal company, Crowder
Gulf, plans to begin the sec-
ond pass for roadside debris
removal on Monday, August


1. Crowder Gulf began on
July 13 with the first pick-
ups on highways and roads
south of the Choctawhatchee
Bay. Residents of south Wal-
ton County who are still
clearing storm debris should
place it. at the roadside by
August 1 for pick-up.
Debris placed by the road-
side should be segregated
into three piles: vegetative
matter, such as 'tree limbs
and branches, construction
debris, such as boards and
broken concrete, and metal
- appliances or lawn furni-
ture. This will make the pick-
up more efficient.
Beach debris pickup is
making good progress, but
somewhat slower than the
roadside pick-up. This is be-
cause of the amount of debris
deposited on the beach by'the
storm, and the difficulty of:
removing it from the beach
without creating further ero-
sion problems. The workers
have completed the first pass
to gather the debris into piles
on the beach for efficient
pickup. Homeowners who
have kept storm debris in.
place for insurance adjust-
ment purposes should get


their debris to these piles as
soon as possible. The crews
are now working from west
to east with equipment to
pick up the piles and remove
them to the disposal area.
Beachgoers are urged to
remain clear of all equipment
and work crews on the beach
- for their own safety, as
well as to allow the workers
to complete their work in a
safe and timely manner. Ex-
tra beach patrol personnel
have been approved by the
Walton County Commission
to help ensure the safety of
the public as this work
progresses.
South Walton citizens with
questions regarding roadside
or beach debris removal may
call the county finance office
at 892-8470, which is manag-
ing the contracts for debris
removal.
Residents living north of
the Choctawhatchee Bay
should contact the Walton
County Public Works Divi-
sion at 892-8108 or 892-8109
to arrange for pick-up of
storm debris. Debris north of
the Choctawhatchee Bay will
be picked up by county pub-
lic works employees.

$2.4 million

for U.S. 98
Representatives Allen
Boyd and Jeff Miller secured
$2.4 million for a study of
U.S. 98 with the passage of
the Transportation Equity
,Act: A Legacy for Users
(TEA-LU) Conference Report
IHR 31. This legislation au-
thorizes $286 billion over five
years for highways, public
transit; and safety and re-
search programs.
"This study is the first step
in our efforts to widen High-_
way 98, which will be a tre-
mendous development for
our area," Boyd said. "Traffic
along the highway has grown
increasingly worse as more
and more people come to the
Panhandle to enjoy our beau-
tiful beaches. Widening
Highway 98,will allow area
residents to travel through
the county safely and with
greater ease and provide
safer:and more effective
evacuation routes during
hurricane season."
"Eglin Air Force Base is
slated to gain over 2,200 jobs
in the very near future,"
Miller said. "We must plan to
meet the transportation
needs of Northwest Florida
now, before gridlock harms
our economy and the mis-
sions of our military. This
funding is the first step in
that direction."
Since 2003, Reps. Boyd and
Miller jointly have requested
funding for Highway 98 to be
included in TEA. .

2004-5 budget was rolled for-
ward for Hurricane Dennis
recovery expenditures, along
with $2 million from South
Walton Tourist Development
Council (TDC) reserves.
Next, for clean up of debris
in eleven of the coastal dune
lakes, a low bid by the
Crowder Gulf company was
approved. Under the agree-
ment, the company is to clean
all the way to the highwater
line at a rate of $62.55 per
cubic yard of debris.
The 60-day contract is to
include the following dune
lakes: Stallworth, Allen, Oys-
ter, Draper, Big Redfish,
Little Redfish, Alligator,
Western, Eastern, Deer, and
Camp Creek, with work to
start at Little Redfish Lake
because of septic tank debris
in that lake due to the hurri-
cane.
SWTDC Executive Direc-
tor Kriss Titus received ap-
proval to proceed in request-
ing bids from dredge contrac-
tors for the large-scale west-
ern Walton County beach re-
nourishment project and to
proceed with requests for
funding from lending instit u-
tions to partially fund the
project. The renourishment,
which will encompass almost
five miles on the west end,
will cost $1.5 million per
mile, Titus explained. The
TDC has $4 million available
in beach renourishment bed
tax reserve funds. Partial
grant funding is expected,
and borrowed funds are to be
paid back through future
beach renourishment bed tax
funds. An October start date
is anticipated.
The commissioners ap-
proved Titus' request to take
bids for the rebuilding of 21
dune walkovers, as well. (All
56 walkovers maintained by
the council had been de-
stroyed due to Hurricane
Dennis' impacts.) The re-

building will be funded
through visitor bed tax dol-
lars and cost is expected to
come to about $400,000.
The walkovers to be rebuilt
are to be interspaced in ac-
cordance with beachgoer
population. The council is in-
vestigating alternative walk-
over designs for the rebuild-
ing of the remainder, includ-
ing retractible models.
Brad Pickel, TDC beach
management director, an-
nounced that the state had,
just approved a second pass
of beach scraping and that a
permit for multiple scrapings
is "on the way." The TDC re-
ceived approval to stay with
the current contractors,
Ammons and Chandler, for
the additional beach scrap-
ing.
Upon the recommendation
of Pat Blackshear, county
planning director, a slight re-
duction in the hours of opera-
tion for the Walton County
Planning Department and
Code Enforcement Depart-
ment was approved. (Hours
had beeh extended substan-
tially immediately following
Hurricane Dennis.)
The newly approved hours
are 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Mon-
day through Friday and 7
a.m. to noon on Saturday.
Also approved was a lifting
of the temporary moratorium
on new projects that had
been imposed post-Dennis to
allow planning staff to focus
on hurricane restoration
work by property owners.
Blackshear noted that
there has been "lots of pres-
sure" during the moratorium
on her department by people
interested in getting started
on new development projects
and homes.
The commissioners unani-
mously endorsed the lifting of
the new project ban, with the
understanding that a backlog
still exists and delays with
approvals of new projects

Among other business, a
development order extension
was approved for the Scenic
Gulf Drive mixed use devel-
opment, which had received.
original approval in late
2003. The location of the
project is the southwest cor-
ner of Scenic Gulf Drive and
Holiday Road.
A traffic concurrency had
been required by the county
in order for the extension to
be considered. The county's
traffic concurrency consult-
ant had certified that the ex-
isting road network would
still accommodate the 252
daily trips that construction
of the project would add to
the applicable road segment
of Scenic Gulf Drive.
The approval will extend
the development order
through the end of Dec. 2005.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 4, 2005


With all the many
miles of beaches
that were washed
away during the
past few storms,
what does that mean
for the local econ-
omy? Can we con-
tinue to solely rely
on tourism dollars
for our economic
survival?

In recent reports that have
been written and released by
Walton and surrounding
counties, all have reported
that the beach renourish-
ments will cost millions and
the slap across the
panhandle's face will be the
loss of revenue due to the
beach and structure damage.
;Last week, the Walton
County Tourists "De6lopd-"
ment Council unveiled their
Autumn Tides schedule for
county "shoulder season"
that goes from September -
November. Events that
range from the Brides and
Tides Wedding Event, the
Beaujalais Nouveau, the
Coastal Wine Tour, the Bay-
towne Film Festival, Grit &
Grace and many other events
that have been slated for the
next four or five months.
These events have always
brought in thousands during
the slow months of the year
and keep hotels, condos and
homes booked throughout
the year. The TDC has
worked diligently through-
out the year to provide enter-
tainment and tourists dol-
lars coming into the pan-
handle.
But, with all the problems
that the weather has brought
about over the past few
months, money is not just the
issue, but getting the crowds
down to this part of Florida is
now an even bigger concern.
Due to moderate to severe
damage done on many of the
units, homes, hotels and
other venues along the
beaches, many have had to
close their doors, evacuate
the premises, refund money,
or even tear down the struc-
ture due to the flooding and
surge.
One of the biggest draws
besides the beaches for this
area has always been the
cultural events that take
place throughout the year.
Thousands make their way
to the sugar sands and crys-
tal blue water beaches to
take part in concerts, art fes-
tivals, car shows, film festi-
vals, and other cultural
events.
But a key to the publicity
and marketing is that there
are rooms to stay in and
homes to rent. What will
happen now if so many of the
venues have had to be con-
demned, closed down for
restoration or either leveled.
Will this hurt the tourists
industry? Will surrounding
counties benefit from the
room and home loss here in
Walton and Okaloosa coun-
ties?
Tourists will 'either read
about or see the detours, the
beach access closures, at-
tractions shut down, and
decide to not reschedule, but


just choice another tourists
destination on down the
road. As we all know, word
of mouth is the best and
worst source of advertise-
ment and thus can help or
hinder our economy.
Thanks to the many re-
porters and television sto-
ries that have been done in
the aftermath of the storms,
the world has seen a bat-
tered, destroyed or closed
down beach community. I
have even had friends that
have called and cancelled
vacations, trips to my home
and asked, "will your area
ever open up the beaches
again?"
For many homeowners
and those who have second
homes in this area, they will
return. They have an invest-
ment that they will probably
want to sell.
For locals, the loss of mil-
lions in tourists dollars can
mean a decline in business,
especially in the service in-
dustry, loss of wages and, for
some, a reason to leave the
area for good.
This is one of the many
reasons that there is such a
push now more than ever, for
industry, to be brought into
the area that doesn't rely
solely on tourists and tour-
ism dollars. There is no gau-
rantee that this area will
still be the "hot spot" and no
guarantee that this will con-
tinue to be the vacation des-
tinations of hundreds of
thousands annually.
The city of Miami saw such
a need to take advantage of
their environment and land-
scape, and opened their
arms to the movie, fashion
and banking industry. The
citizens of Dade County and
surrounding areas knew
there were many more beau-
tiful beaches in Florida, and
they knew they had to be one
step ahead.
Despite the small growth of
industry in Walton and Oka-
loosa County, there is still
much more that needs to be
done to promote large busi-
ness, and yes, even plants
and manufacturers to this
area. Many locals say that
even if it might be an eye-sore
to see a plant in the horizon,
at least jobs will be provided,
th6 local economy would get a
much needed boost, and it
will mean business to this
area that does not completely
rely on visitors crossing the
state line.
With this being one of the
busiest hurricane seasons on
record so far, and many
meteorologists and weather
experts saying we will con-
tinue to see an increase in
tropical disturbances along
the gulf coast in years to
come, this area needs to be-
gin looking at alternative
sources of business. Even if it
means having more semi
trucks and flatbeds on the
county roads, more afford-
able housing for employees,
and seeing a few smoke
stacks towering above the
trees.
Whatever the industry
might be, or whatever local
government and tourists
councils decide to do, it needs
to be done quickly. It would
be a sad day if the only thing
Walton and Okaloosa coun-
ties were known for was just
a place to fill up with gas on
the tourists way to their
Mexico Beach vacation desti-
nation.

who nurture them.
I dropped by Eden last Tuesday when FOE volunteers meet
to mow, water, weed and spray, and came across honorary
member Fritz Hennl, a delightful gentleman who was busy
spraying the rose garden. It was Tom Godbold who stirred
his interest in Eden; he said as he recalled the attention
and care the grounds received under Tom's watchful eye.
Tom's relationship with the place was "like Adam to
Eve," Fritz said.
Later, I checked with Tom's wife, Cathy, who told me he is
in recovery now with limited use of speech and his right
side, but he is reading and keeping up with all the happen-
ings along the coast, she said.
If you are interested in gardening and wish to meet the
greatest people here, become a member of the Friends. Con-
tact, Jan Stanko, 231-0288; Wayne Carlisle, 267-3299 or
Brenda Rees, 231-4994.

Reese also said that while

sand does not meet the

S"We are trying to shoot for

would station lifeguards in
six towers spread out over

In addition to one lifeguard

on water conditions.

estimated at $160,000 per

Following that discussion,
Titus volunteered to build a
scope of services for lifeguard
service and to bring it back
to the committee for review,
drawing on the previous pro-
posals.
She said County Commis-
sion Chairman Ken Pridgen
and County Administrator
Ronnie Bell had also re-
quested the 'scope of services.
Titus said that after com-
mittee review the scope of
services would go before the
county commission for final
consideration. "We'll shoot for
spring," she responded to
questions about when the
service could be instituted.
Hughes commented that
the committee's beach safety
education efforts have been
on target and the warning
flags are a good tool, but that
lifeguards would be the best
educators.
"That's your educator right
there," he said.
The committee voted
unanimously to have Titus
move forward with the scope
of services.
