DeFuniak Springs Council



to appoint City Marshall


By TAMMY KEARCE
The DeFuniak Springs
City Council will begin ac-
cepting resumes during the
month of August to fill the
City Marshall position, com-
monly referred to as the chief
of police, recently vacated by


former Ray Burgess.
Until the council can ap-
point a replacement, Lt. Den-
nis Ward will serve as the
city's chief law enforcement
officer. "So far, in the day to
day operations of keeping the
city safe, there have been no


DEFUNIAK SPRINGS POLICE VETERNV Lt. Dennis
Ward will supervise the police department while city coun-
cilmen review applications for the top slot, following the res-
ignation of City Marshall Ray Burgess, who plead no contest
to attempting to falsify state documents. The council will ap-
point a replacement for the job, which has 21 months remain-
ing in the term.


differences," said Ward, who
has served with the city po-
lice department since 1988.
At this week's city council
meeting, members unani-
mously agreed to increase
Ward's base pay by 10 per-
cent while serving as chief
law enforcement officer in
compensation for his height-
ened duties during that time.

Since Burgess resigned
during the third year of his
four-year term, a special elec-
tion was not an option. City
resident J.B. Hillard ad-,,
dressed the council in favor
of a special election. "The
people should have a right to
vote on it," he said. But City
Attorney Clayton Adkinson
responded, "The city code is
very clear on this." In fact
DeFuniak Springs city code
ordinance 464 reads, "should
the unexpired term of said
office be less than one-half
the full term, [the] vacant
office shall be filled by ap-
pointment of a person duly
qualified for said office by
affirmative vote of a major-
ity of the city councilmen."
It was agreed by a unani-


mous vote that resumes
would be collected until Au-
gust 31, 2005 at which time
the council will review re-
sumes, hold a workshop and
conduct interviews. finally
appointing a new chief of po-
lice to hold office until 2007.
The only requirement for
the position is that the appli-
cant be a citizen of DeFuniak
Springs. Ward is still unde-
cided as to whether he will
apply. "We just moved into
our new house and it is lo-
cated one :mile outside the
.,city limits, so I do not cur-
rently meet the residency Ire-
quirement,".he said.
In other council business:
Council members voted
unanimously to appoint Jim
Ash and Faye Hardy to re-
place John Sims arid Kriss
Titus on the Christmas Re-
flections Board of Directors.
The council agreed unani-
mously to block off Circle
Drive during the Christmas
Parade to be held December
10, 2005.
The council voted unani-
:mously to approve spending
on replacement body armor
for the city police force.

Burgess resigns


aschief, pleads


no contest


By BRUCE COLLIER
Following a four-month in-
vestigation by the Florida
Department of Law Enforce-
ment and the Florida State
Attorney, DeFuniak Springs
Police Chief Ray Burgess re-
signed, effective August 3.
On August 5. Burgess en-
tered a plea of"no contest" to
a single misdemeanor charge
of "altering, defacing or fal-
sifying a document."
Walton County Circuit
Court Judge Jim Ward
withheld adjudication of guilt,
and ordered Burgess to pay
$300 costs within 30 days of
the sentencing.
Burgess also executed and
tendered an affidavit of relin-
quishment ofcriminaljustice
certifications.
Under the terms of the sen-
tencing agreement and affi-
davit, Burgess is barred from
re-applying for certification
as a law enforcement officer
for a period oftwo years. This
restriction applies to all ju-
risdictions.
. Burgess also agreed to"co-
operate with FDLE and the
State Attorney's Office in this
investigation and testify
truthfully in any.related
hearings and trials."
.Burgess had been under
FDLE investigation since
,April 2005, in connection
with "possible' criminal mis-
,conduct related to falsifica-
tion of records."
The records concerned law
enforcement officer recertifi-
cation ofWilliam Chapman,
formerly a colonel in the Wal-


ton County Sheriff's Depart-
ment.
Theinvestigation had been
on temporary hold pending
a second look at the file by
FDLE, after the file had been
turned over to the Sate At-
torney.
FDLE completed its second
look, and assistant State At-
torney John Simon stated
that proceedings are "now
over as to this matter."
Burgess and his attorney,
Clayton Atkinson, left the
courtroom without comment
after adjournment. Atkinson
offered a written statement
made by Burgess.

Part of the statement
reads:
"Recently, I made a deci-
sion that, in hindsight I re-
gret. In an effort to lend sup-
port and assistance to a fel-
loyw officer, I did not fully con-
sider that my confidence
andreliance on assurances
from representatives of the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement might. be mis-
placed."
"" whilee I steadfastly main-
tain my innocence to any
criminal wrong: doing, I can
not afford to risk'losing my
retirement with the state of
Florida."
Burgess concluded that his
resignation was made "in the
best interest of all parties
concerned...."
The charge to which Bur-
gess pled carries a maximum
of one year in jail and a
$1000 fine.

Jail move still costing taxpayers money


By TIANA LARSEN
The Board of County Com-
missioners (BCC) thought
they had seen the last of the
bills for the jail that wasn't
built in downtown DeFuniak,
but a final one for $115,255
turned up at the August 9
meeting.

"It is a legitimate bill and
I recommend paying it," ad-
vised David Hallman, county
attorney. Hallman went on to


explain he had spent hours
and hours examining the
outstanding-
invoice. "The bottom line is
they are owed the money," he
concluded, but the BCC was
clearly reluctant to pay
Holmes Wilking 2RW any-
thing further for the can-
celled contract.
Hallman explained there
are several components to
the invoice, including profes-
sional services, payment for


lost profit on construction ad-
ministration, out of pocket
expenses and other costs.
Hallman also recom-
mended that interest be paid
at the statuatory rate.
No commissioner made a
motion to pay up after
Hallman finished his re-
marks.
Eventually Commissioner
Ro Cuchens asked if
Hallman thought 2RW
would forego the interest if


the rest of the bill was paid
by the county.
"I can certainly ask,"
Hallman replied. That
prompted a motion by Com-
missioner Scott Brannon to
table the the item and send
Hallman back with the re-
quest that payment without
interest be accepted.

This would be the final bill
and would resolve all issues,
Hallman said.

TRIM notices



to be mailed


Notice of proposed taxes,
also known as TRIM (Truth
in Millage) notices, are
scheduled to be mailed to
property owners August 12,
2005. TRIM notices are pre-
pared by the property ap-
praiser on behalf of the
county taxing authorities.
The notices indicate the as-
sessed value laced on the
property by the property ap-
praiser, the taxes proposed
by each taxing authority, and
the roll-back rate, which is
the tax amount should each
taxing authority not increase
its property tax levy.
Preparation of the TRIM
notices follows the approval
of the real property assess-
ment roll by the Florida De-
partment of Revenue on July
29, 2005. It is the duty of the
Department of Revenue to
review assessment rolls sub-
mitted by county property
appraisers to insure compli-
ance with applicable state
statues. The county assess-
ment rolls are testedlby the
Department of Revenue for
both level of assessment and
uniformity: The level of as-
sessment indicates whether,
the county appraisals met
legally required levels. Uni-
formity is measured to test
whether county appraisals
are uniform within a group
or form one group to another.
Walton County's gross tax-
able property value for 2005
is placed at $12,830,686,103.


The 2004 final gross taxable
value was $8,145,755,711.
The 57.5 percent increase in
value is mainly attributed to
the resort and second-home
markets in south Walton.
The city of Freeport market
posted a 27.57 percent value
appreciation over the past
year.
Taxing Authorities levying
Sa millage rate in Walton and
their proposed tax levy
changes are as follows:
Board of County commis-
sion, +51.44 percent; Board
of Public Instruction, +21.42
percent; Northwest Florida
Water Management, +20.48
percent; North Walton Mos-
quito Control, +12.08 per-
cent; South Walton Mosquito
Control, +18.35; Towni ofDe-
Funiak Springs, +8.02 per-
cent; Town of Freeport,
+20.63 percent; South Wal-
ton Fire, +57.85 percent.
The Walton County Prop-
erty Appraiser's Office en-
courages all property owners
to carefully examine their
TRIM notice. If an owner be-
lieves the assessed value in-
dicated exceeds market
value, or has questions con-
cerning the valuation, they
should contact the property
appraisers office at 892-8123,
or in south Walton, 267-4500.
Questions or concerns about
tax rates or budgets should
be directed to the taxing au-
thorities indicated on the
TRIM notice.

Attempted

murder trial

continued:

New evidence

discovered

By BRUCE COLLIER
Discovery of original 9-1-1
tapes has caused Circuit
Court Judge Robert Lindsey
to postpone trial in the 2003
case of John Lewis Rafuse
Jr.
Rafuse is charged with
multiple counts of attempted
first-degree murder, and of
shooting into an occupied
dwelling. The offenses are
alleged to have occurred in
July of 2003.
Lindsey ordered the con-
tinuance on his own motion,
having learned of the exist-
ence of the tapes only shortly
before, trial was to have be-
gun on August 9.
A jury had been selected,
but rot yet sworn. Lindsey
explained to the jurors that
Rafuse's attorney, Lenny
Platteborze, needed addi-
tional time to listen to the
tapes.
The tapes, made at the
time of the alleged offenses,
may possibly contain excul-
patory or mitigating evi-
dence.
Defendants are entitled,
upon motion, to any evidence
in the possession of the state
that may tend to exculpate
them of a charged offense.
The case has been reset for
September 12, but the court
told defense counsel that ad-
ditional time could be
granted if necessary.
Platteborze stated that he
wanted to make "accurate
reproductions" of the tapes.

Editor's Comment



A wink and a smile


By RONKELLEY

I always like it when I can write something inspiring and
uplifting to share with you, faithful reader. Unfortunately,
as I look around, I don't see much cause for rejoicing.
Our nation's new energy policy benefits no one but Big
Oil and the nuclear power industry at the cost of our wal-
lets and our environment in the Florida Gulf and Alaska.
The death toll of Americans continues to rise in Iraq as
does violent civil unrest, causing many people to question
why the U.S. launched an attack and declared war on the
small Middle Eastern country.
In the meantime, thousands of illegal aliens continue to
pour across our Mexican and.Canadian borders while we
frisk little old ladies in airports.
The Patriot Act allows the government to spy on Ameri-
cans at will, to suspend our civil rights and allows federal
agencies to launch clandestine investigations into the lives
of anyone who speaks out against the government or its lead-
ers.
If I had any doubts about being on the list, they were put
to rest when I recently exercised one of my last remaining
rights as an American and wrote to my congressman. As I
was filling in my name and address'on the online site, be-
fore I typed in my e-mail address, the site automatically
filled in that space with my wife's private e-mail address,
despite the fact that I am not listed anywhere on her ISP
application (which is in her maiden name) and neither of us
have ever written to the government from that address.
I can't tell you how safe I feel knowing that my Big Brother
and Uncle Sam are keeping such close tabs on me. They
must be worried about my safety. Frankly, so am I now.
Here at home, my beaches are wrecked and nearly ruined
in some areas and the National Weather Service now says
we'll be seeing even more storms than they first predicted.
A good friend of mine has seen his law enforcement ca-
reer ruined and the top man to replace him lives outside
the city limits and is therefore not eligible to apply for-the
job.
Since there is no joy in Mudville, I think we need a break
from all this dismal reality, so I've compiled a few thoughts
from some of my recent e-mails for your amusementand.
consideration.
Ponder these eternal questions...
If money doesn't grow on trees then why do banks have
branches?
Since bread is square, why is sandwich meat round?
Why do I have-to "put my two cents in," but pay only a
"penny for your thoughts?" Where's that extra penny go-
ing?


Shootin' The Breeze
by Laura Merle Woodham
Editor/Publisher- emeritus

AFTER READING MY REPORT in last week's edi-
tion on the serious problems Walton County faces with
beach erosion, re-


ceived a call from
James Laird of
Lockhart, AL.
Laird is construct-
ing a six-acre pond in
back of his home, Hwy.
54 West. His neigh-
bors accuse him of
having: been digging
the pond for the past
twenty years. He is do-
ing all the work him-
self and has all the
equipment to get the
job done. When fin-
ished the depth will
average twelve to fif-
teen feet. It is a sight
to behold.


THIS SAMPLE OF WHITE
CLAYISOAPSTONE sits on a
table in Laird's yard. Looks'like
a chunk of ice from the North
Pole and after weathering is as
hard as a rock.

"Witnesses were stunned, startled, aghast, taken, aback,

All the dirt removed

sand, red clay and white clay, or soapstone, if you will.
The white clay, when freshly dug, will spread like most

stone, and is as

I am just one voice. I asked our editor, Ron Kelley, if he

beach commissioners Scott Brannon and Cindy Meadows
could join him and collect samples to present at a subse-

of sand to use to protect and preserve our cliffs, dunes and

taken, and now!

ENJOYED A VISIT Monday morning with Jerry Evans
who grew up in Florala, was very much involved in the op-
eration of Evans Funeral Home and Evans Mens Wear. I
love Jerry because he gets so excited about the things that
interest him, and that's just about all facets of life.
He always asks about First Methodist Church and how
many active members we have and if Judy McDaniel and I
are still the only members of the choir. I told him on a good
day, we might have six.or eight choir members and that on
fifth Sunday when the other members of the "charge",
Hopewell and Christian Home, join us, we have a good con-
gregation. The members of the country churches have
dropped to a dozen or less each. The combined membership
has talked about closing both churches and building in Lau-
rel Hill a town experiencing growth pains with so many
people leaving Destin and the beaches. That is a hard deci-

Dear Editor,
On behalf of Tri-County Little League, I would like to ex-
press my appreciation to Defuniak Springs Little League
for the tremendous job they did in hosting the recent Dis-
trict, Sectional and State Little League (11-12) softball tour-
naments.
The task of hosting one such tournament was demanding
enough, but to host three consecutive tournaments required
a monumental effort, especially with the state tournament
coming on the heels of Hurricane Dennis. A successful Little
League program is completely dependent on the efforts of
numerous volunteers including coaches, umpires, conces-
sion stand workers, and parents..All of these groups made
vital contributions to the success of these tournaments.
I especially want to thank DFSLL President and Tourna-
ment Coordinator Ellen McLean for all her assistance and
for making us feel so welcome. Greg Brack and his crew
handled the field maintenance and worked an enormous
number of hours in extremely hot conditions to ensure the
playing fields were in great shape for every game; Finally, I
would like to thank Coach Kevin Harper and his team for
the great competition we have enjoyed with them over the
years. The games we played and the sportsmanship they
displayed, truly defines what Little League is all about.
Thanks again for making District 1 proud.

Dear Editor.
In an alleged press release today, Walton County Com-
missioner Cindy Meadows has declared John Kerry as.Presi-
dent of the United States. When asked about the electoral
college, majority rule, democracy and even state laws, IMead-
ows allegedly replied that she had made a motion for staff
Sto draft a county ordinance to override those laws (it alleg-
edly passed 3 2).
It appears this.mode of operation began with Ms. Mead-
ows approach to the sensitive situation at Gulf Trace. A vast
majority of the property owners there are not in favor of
public sewer service. Again, Meadows made a motion for
staff to draft another county ordinance (it passed 3 .2). A
major concern of Meadows' is using "tax money to clean up
someone else's drain fill matter." It is not clear how much
the county has, spent cleaning up the Gulf Trace problem -
how much in excess of the property taxes the Gulf Trace
residents pay? Regardless, everyone must have done a great
job since the Health Department ran sand and water
samples after Dennis and found no contamination.
If the public is wondering to what extent Ms. Meadows
may continue down this road of majority doesn't count, al-
legedly the medical staff at Sacred Heart Hospital was con-
sulted. A spokesman for the hospital, who'wished to remain,
anonymous, allegedly.stated that "Ms. Meadows may still
have a "Grayton Grand" bug stuck somewhere in here
anatomy."
:As to the Kerry declaration, Ms. Meadows was allegedly
asked what fellow Republicans thought. Her reply, alleg-
edly, was "I'm a Republican?"
iI hope Ms. Meadows does not find out wherif live'-' al-
though, I am signing this letter unlike the paid advertise-
ments that have appeared in local paper disparaging the'
Gulf Trace neighborhood.

Editor:.
Everybody down here in Walton County after the hurri-
canes are calling for beach renourishment. If the state or
the county would agree, everybody needs to make a deal,
that the whole beach is for everyone; that there be no more
lawsuits, fences, no beach venders, or locked gates. God;
made the beach for everyone, not for just the chosen, few.
What people own today is to the water line and now days
at water tide it's at the back door of beach house owners. I
have seen it under the homes at times. It's just that simple.
Lets put it back right, with white sand, and for everyone.
We the citizen of the world should not have to fight for a day
at the beach. All beaches should be for everyone.

Editor:
Phyllis Watson's column, Daily News, July 3; "Don't mis-
direct funds for area's elderly" presented many good points
and raised good questions. The Area Agency on Aging (AAA)
Shas been causing problems for local lead agencies for months
The solicitation for bids to compete for the designation of
lead agency is only the latest excursion by the Pensacola
office. Apparently AAA ignored the provisions contained in'
Senate Bill 1226 whereby local lead 'agencies are to be ex-
empt from the bid process if they meet all of the minimum
requirements for service to their clients. Past attempts by
AAA to change the landscape have proved disastrous.
When meal preparation was removed from the local agen-
cies and contracted to a private vendor, a series of problems
arose. Meals were not maintained at the required tempera-
ture for delivery to the meal site, the quality of the .food
declined, cross contamination of meal components occurred,
items were missing and milk was often sour. Additionally,
the cost per meal increased. This resulted in a loss of clients
at our meal sites. For some, this may have been the only
meal they would receive that day.
When services were contracted, the vendor attempted to
choose which clients they would support depending upon
the distance they would have to travel to reach the client.
Walton County may have escaped this latest foray since
there were no other bidders but, since Okaloosa and Walton
were the only two counties opened for bid, it raises another
Question. These two counties have questioned and .raised


objections to the heavy-handed tactics ofAAA. Therefore, it
is hard to escape the suspicion that there may be a punitive
aspect to all of this.
The process for evaluating bids was purely subjective. It
was a comparison of proven performance against promised
performance by an agency with no experience and not staffed
or structured to deliver the required services. It seems likely
that a hefty percentage of the $800,000 will go toward reor-
ganization and training.
There is concern within the legislature over the rising costs
for human services. Perhaps antics such as those being per-
formed by AAA are a major contributor to this cost rise.

would invite eve\i oin to read page one and 13A of the
July 28 edit ionl of the Herald. If I am interpreting this
~ticle co'rectli Tom Powell continues to try and tell us,
with his usual list of excuses, why, after 13 years, he has
not brought one single job to Walton County. Again, if I am
rcildinlg correctly, the BCC is telling Mr. Powell they have
heard all these excuses several times before and now want
action instead of his excuses or they want a new director
who will lead us down the road to success rather than more
excuses.
This action by the BCC is long overdue. In the past, such
notables as Gene Ryan, Lane Rees, Herman Walker and
Tim Pauls all thought their reelection hopes could be ham-
pered if they incurred the wrath of the businessmen who
were on the board of governors of the EDC, as well as mem-
bers or directors of the Chamber of Commerce. Only time
:will tell us if they might have been reelected had they not
cared more for the interests of a few business people rather
than the welfare of Walton County and its citizens. One
thing is obvious now, rather than having to wait for the judg-

sion to make one that brings tears to the eyes of those
even discussing it. They just can't bring themselves to make
a decision either way. God bless them!
Jerry has always been a big,supporter of our newspapers,
both the DeFuniak Springs Herald-Breeze and The Florala
News. He probably knows more about what is printed in
them than we do.
The family remembers in earlier times when Jerry and a
Group of other faithfuls would sit on the sidewalk and wait
for the first paper to come off the press. Oftentimes that
was all hours of the night. Now, it is all night Tuesday and
sometimes mid-day Wednesday.
Jerry, we appreciate your interest and support all these
years and love those "chats" while catching up on family
news. The Woodham/Evans family friendship goes back a
long way. His parents, the late Hubert and Helen Evans,
were across the street neighbors of Larry's parents, the late
Ben and Lucile Woodham. Larry and Joe Evans (Jerry's older
brother) were more like brothers, growing up together and
attending school, CCHS Class of'51.

CONGRATULATIONS to Pat and Dianne on the occasion
of Goff's Ready to Wear 50th anniversary celebration this
Saturday, August 13.
Your parents would be especially proud of you for having
carried on this family tradition.
Our girls, Sherry, Cindy and Sonya have, for many years,
enjoyed their annual visits to Goff's to purchase their back-
to-teaching school clothes. From our family to yours best
of luck for continued success.
WHAT A PLEASANT SURPRISE it was to see Tom and
Sabra Martin and family at First Baptist Church in Florala
for Homecoming celebration and reunion of the 1968
Glorietta Choir. The Martin sisters, Susan Hudson and Cindy
Jeselnik were members of the fifty-two member late 60's
youth choir and were participants of a two-week tour to
Glorietta, NM. They were under the direction of Gary Bond.
SAbout thirty-five of the group returned to Florala Sunday
and performed special selections from the tour musical ar-
rangements which they sang acapella. Those attending the
Sunday morning worship ser-
vice applauded their excep- 0
tional performance after
some thirty-eight years. ..
Sabra, daughters, Susan .
and Cindy, and granddaugh-
ters, Briana Jeselnik, Tiffany
and Lindsey Hudson, were
featured during the afternoon
session at which special mu-
sic and testimonials by choir
members were offered. They Soap Stone & 1ar
chose to sing southern gospel
favorites, I'll Fly Away and
Shall We Gather at the River.
They also sang without mu-I M
sical accompaniment. Addi-
tionally, Susan and Gary, sur- Will L
praised everyone by singing a
selection from Phantom of the
Opera. JAME
Great performance, ladies.
I was blessed, having at- 334 85

ment of time: all of these commissioners were one term only.
I think it unconscionable that over the years, the leader-
ship has paid in excess of $1,235,000 to an organization con-
sisting of one employee, to produce absolutely nothing. It is
refreshing to finally have a Board of County Commission-
ers who will put the needs of the citizens ahead of a group of
business people who really have no interests other than their


own greed.

As children are beginning a new school year, some are
experiencing "firsts" in their young lives. Akindergartener's
first day of school, a young boy or girl walking to school for
the first time, a child transitioning from elementary to
middle school, or maybe a newly licensed high-school stu-
dent driving to school. These first-time experiences can be
daunting challenges for children and parents.,
During the summer, we've become accustomed to driving
on roads without school buses and we've all but forgotten
about the school bus stops and crossing zones on our daily
commutes to and from work. But now, school bus stops and
crossing zones are booming with hundreds of kids, and driv-
ers need to pay extra attention over the next few weeks to
ensure a safe start to the school year.
Children are at a disadvantage in most cases because they
are less visible to motorists. Children are also less capable
than adults of judging where and when it's safe to cross a
street and less likely to fully understand the consequences
of their potential misjudgments. Statistics show that one-

fifth of all children age 14 and under who die in motor ve-
hicle crashes are pedestrians. Many of these fatalities are
children who ran across the street while not paying atten-
tion to oncoming vehicles.
During the months of August and September, AAA Auto
Club South will be carrying out its annual "School's Open
- Drive Carefully" educational campaign, and the AAA
School Safety Patrol members will be on full alert for dan-
gerous situations. We ask that all drivers be on full alert
too. The best protection to avoid a fatal mistake is for driv-
ers to slow down. Every mile per hour you reduce your speed
allows for greater reaction time. This could be the differ-
ence between life and death for a child who unexpectedly
darts across a street. And that child could be yours!
Whether it's the beginning, middle, or end of the year,
always remember, "School's Open Drive Carefully."
Sincerely,
See Dawn Landrum Wilson

cussed students living in pov-
erty environments and that
society needs to encourage a
push to be made for these
students to move forward in
education to earn a degree.
Reverend Cliff Matthews,
interim director of Missions,
discussed how churches need
to reach out to those in the
community in a Christian
manner. Reverend Matthews
reminded all to "respond in
the same compassion as
Christ". Pam Stuckey, direc-
tor of Community Support
with COPE, discussed behav-
ioral health care services in
the community. She ex-.
plained how millions of
Americans suffer from men-
tal health disorders, but that
some find themselves in ev-
eryday situations that causes
stress, which can be anything
from health problems, finan-
cial problems or family prob-
lems.
COPE offers a wide range
of services but has difficulty
when some come for services
who are homeless and with-
out food. It takes the commu-
nity coming together to help
those who are in need. Chap-
lain Barrett Glover, chaplain.


Walton Correctional Institu-
tion, informed the audience,
"Poverty is not only a contrib-
uting factor in the early lives
of many who become felons,
but also a real force when
they reach the end of their
sentences. Poverty often pro-
duces a victim mentality' and
poverty is a factor for many
incarcerated when released."
The different speakers en-
couraged those in the audi-
ence to reach out and help
neighbors who are in need.
People suffering from pov-
erty need love, encourage-
ment and support.
Anyone interested in
reaching out to help or who
would like to gather more
information regarding
Project Help, contact Lynda


Melson at 951-4514.

I LETTER TO THE EDITOR I


Dear Editoi,

Today I heard the news about the chief of police and his
resignation. I immediately thought back to the days of "01'
Sarge Brown" and that Impala with the stick on badge on
the door he used to ride around in. Then in natural progres-
sion. I thought of Chief Hooks, and how he held the trust of
our community for so many years, and how he started to
transform our police department into a professional organi-
zation worthy of our respect. Chief Hooks passed his knowl-
edge and skill onto Chief Burgess who, through consider-
able effort, has continuously improved our police depart-
ment, until now it is arguably the best police department in
the state for a town the size of ours.
Now for whatever reason, some seem to want to ruin a
fine man. No one will ever know why for sure, we have all
heard different accounts, ranging from other elected offi-
cials with a vendetta, to certain citizens of influence upset
over a run-in with the law. Whatever the reason, the fact
remains that our town will be less without Chief Burgess in
charge of our police force.
I have heard on local radio and television the alleged trans-
gressions committed by our chief, and I also know the per-
son he was trying to help. Speaking strictly for myself, I
hope these two are the worst criminals I ever encounter.
They have more honor and integrity in their dirty laundry
than most of us will ever have. As for the allegations, I hope
we can all see that pretty much anything can be made to
sound horrendous!
Just today, for example, I saw one of our very own city
councilmen display a willful and wanton disregard for our
precious children's safety! He did not come to an absolute
full stop at a four way stop intersection!! The nerve! There
could have been a bus load of orphans on the way to receive
kidney transplants who decided to lay down in that inter-
section. Silly? Yes, but an all too real example of how we as
a society seem to forget that our elected officials are all hu-
man. I cannot cast the first stone, and I hope our commu-
nity feels the same.
In.the coming days and weeks we as a community have a
golden opportunity to say to the rest of the county, state,
and country, that we all are not without sin, and we respect
and appreciate the dedication that Chief Burgess has given
us throughout his twenty four years of service. (Amazing,
just one year shy of full retirement eligibility!) I would ask
all of us to stand up for this good man just once, as he has
stood up for us for so many years. He would never ask this
of any of us, which is: other reason we can not afford to
lose him. Does ruining this good man simply because we
can, truly serve the greater good?

Gallagher

questions

Allstate rate

request

Florida's Chief Financial
Officer Tom Gallagher said
that an independent review
of Allstate Floridian Insur-
ance Company's request for
higher rates shows deficien-
cies and raises troubling
questions about the
company's motives in seeking
rate increases.
"The numbers do not add
up," said CFO Gallagher, "It
is becoming clear that their
request for a rate increase is
unjustified, and I think they
need to reconsider their de-
cision to raise rates on their
policyholders. Allstate cus-
tomers deserve accountabil-
ity from their insurance pro-
vider."
CFO Gallagher is request-
ing that Allstate customers
apply pressure to the com-
pany by participating in up-
coming public hearings to
review Allstate's rate re-
quests.
The deficiencies in
Allstate's rate request were
discovered after an indepen-
dent review was carried out
by Gallagher's Consumer
Advocate's Office. The inde--
pendent review examined
Allstate Floridian Insurance
Company and its affiliated
company, Allstate Indemnity.
Both requests were submit-
ted to Insurance Commis-
sioner Kevin McCarty, who
oversees the Office of Insur-
ance Regulation and regu-
lates insurance rates.
Based on the conclusions
of the report, CFO Gallagher
determined that these
Florida-only companies are
attempting to justify their
rates based on losses from
other states. In addition,
Allstate Floridian did not
adequately document how
not-renewing 95,000 Florid-
ians a substantial reduc-
tion in exposure impacts
their rate request. Finally,
the report revealed that the
companies are asking for an
increase for reinsurance that
is out of proportion with their
previous rate requests.

Attracting hummingbirds to your garden


By Dara Dobson, Walton
County Master Gardener

As if by magic, humming-
birds arrive almost as soon as
we provide the right plants or
a red hummingbird feeder.
One can attract and feed
hummingbirds with feeders
alone but will find that com-
bining hummingbird attrac-
tant plants will be a very re-
warding effort.
In Florida, we can have
something in bloom the ma-
jority of the year which will
feed the.birds. One of the
...geat things about Florida
plants is the abundance of
nectar, fruit and cover they
provide. The nectar attracts
butterflies, birds and bugs.
Bugs are a good thing be-
cause many birds require in-
sects for food. Humming-
birds must feed their babies
insects.
Blooming season is impor-
tant if we want to keep hum-
mingbirds around the home.
Nesting hummingbirds'will
Need nectar from March to
September. Plant a variety
of plants that bloom during
different times of the year (es-
pecially spring and fall), and
plant them in masses. It is
important to keep plants free
of pesticides. Pesticides de-
stroy the insect food base vi-
tal to hummingbirds and
their offspring, and may also
contaminate the nectar they
drink. Nesting humming-
birds are very aggressive and
territorial around their food

will be "close out" items.


source. Having more than
one area with attractant flow-
ers and feeders will allow sev-
eral hummers to feed at the
same time.
It is thought that the hum-
mingbirds have a binocular
type vision that can spot a red
flower or feeder from 3/4 of a
mile away. Their favorite col-
ors are red, orange and pink.
Flowers that are tubular or
in loose drooping clusters are
best. Some of their favorite
native plants are Coral Bean,
Firebush, Red Star Hibiscus,
Swamp Azalea, Coral Honey
Suckle, Trumpet Vine, But-
terfly Milkweed, Red Basil,
Cardinal Flower, Obedient
Plant, Scarlet Morning Glory,
Cypress Vine, Standing Cy-
press, and Tropical Sage.
Hummingbirds frequently
seek out willows for nesting
sites.
There are also a variety of
hummingbird attractant non-
native plants that thrive in
our zone. Some favorites are
Red Bee Palm, Pineapple
Sage, Four O'Clocks, Shrimp
Plant, Geranium, Cigar
Plant, Firespike, many Salvia
varieties, Gingers and But-
terfly Bushes.
One hummingbird may
need nectar from hundreds of


blossoms every day to main-
tain its body weight. Hum-
mingbirds can lick at a rate
of 13 times per second, and
their stomach is capable of
holding about .18 ounces of
nectar at one time. For their
size, hummingbirds have the
largest appetite in the bird
world. They feed every 10 to
15 minutes from dawn to
dusk. Just before dark, they
eat as much as they can to
help them survive the hours
they cannot feed. During the
night, their heart rate and
body temperature drop to
conserve energy. If they did
not go into this sort of daily
hibernation stage, they likely
would starve.
Providing artificial feeders
will help supply the large
amount of nectar they re-
quire. They also allow us to
increase our opportunities to
view the hummers. The nec-
tar from flowers is much
more nourishing and the
feeders should be used to
supplement blooming plants.
The solution is easy to pre-
pare by adding one part sugar,
to four parts water. Do not
color with food coloring or use
any other sweeteners. The
sugar can be dissolved in
warm water. It is not neces-


sary to boil the water. It is
important to keep the sugar
solution fresh.
Florida's hot weather can
cause rapid bacteria growth
and birds that drink contami-
nated water could die.
Change the solution every 3-
5 days. Clean the feeders
with hot water and white vin-
egar and rinse well. If an
abundance of birds, place the
feeders at least 10 feet apart
so that more than one bird
can feed at a time.

Outreach for Christ

to host gospel sing


A question people might ask


By Dr. Robert M. Jaye

When something awful happens in this evil world, people
might ask the question, "Where in the world is God?" Per-
haps it was at such a time that the psalmist asked, "Why art
thou cast down, 0 my soul? And why art thou disquieted
within me?" Hope thou in God: For I shall praise Him for
the help of His countenance" (42:5). When we ask where God
is, this Psalm will help give us answers.
Consider a moment with God. When anguish comes, come
to God. That is what the psalmist did. There was no reason
to be cast down when God is in the picture.
Consider a moment to respond to God. A moment of telling
God all of your troubles will bring with it the calm of soul
that you have sought. It will bring songs in the night. After


all, He is the only wise God. He may be hidden from our
eyes now, yet He is still with His people. That is the task of
the Holy Spirit. He indwells us at all times through faith in
Jesus Christ.
Consider God responding to us. He does respond. His
heart is touched with our grief. It is He who gives us strength
to carry on in the midst of grief and anguish. Let us not fail
to know that He responds to us.
There is a message of hope. Some of us feel that there is
no hope in this world for us. Yet there is the instruction,
"Hope thou in God." A personal relationship with God
through Christ assures us of His help. We can say, "my God."
In times of anguish and sorrow, we often wonder where
God is. Then we meet God in personal experience and know
that god is there to give us help and hope. Trust in God.


There will be a gospel sing
at Destiny Worship Center.
Sandi Patty will be perform-
ing at this benefit concert,
Sunday evening, Aug.14, at
7 p.m. The concert will be
held in the auditorium of
Destiny The Worship Center,

SEEDS
FROM
STHE
4: SOWER"
Michael A. Guido
Metier, Georgia

Two little girls were talk-
ing about God.
"I know God doesn't hear
my prayers," cried one. "He
couldn't care for such a little
girl likeme."
"That's what God's for,"
said the other, "to take care
of little girls like us who can't
take.care of themselvess"
No child is too small to talk'
to God, and no adult is to old.
The fears of childhood, the,
problems of youth, the lone-,
liness of age-you can bring
every one to god. He's always
thinking about you, and'
watching everything that
concerns you. '
He listens to each one of us,
as if there was only one of us.
to listen to. He's the hearer
of prayer- yours and mine.
Call on Him, won't you?

Two
Friends
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC
Rn SSponsored by T.P. Motors

I wish to express my appreciation to two people that
are dear to me, Al Wilson, and Todd Pittman. Al for send-
ing me great articles from time to time, and Todd for
sponsoring these articles. If you need a new car alterna-
tive, without the new car price, shop with Todd Pittman
at TP Motor.
Two friends were walking through the desert. Dur-
ing some point of the journey they had an argument,
and one friend slapped the other one in the face.
The. one who got slapped was hurt, but without say-
ing. anything, wrote in the sand: Today my best friend
slapped me in the face.
They kept on walking until they found an oasis, where
they decided to take a bath.
The one who had been slapped got stuck in the mire
and started drowning, but the friend saved him.
After he recovered from the near drowning, he wrote
on a stone: Today my best friend saved my life.
The friend who had slapped and saved his best friend
asked him, "After I hurt you; you wrote in the sand and
now, you write on a stone, why?"
The other friend replied, "When someone hurts us we
should write it down in sand where winds of forgiveness
can erase it away.
But, when someone does something good for us, we
must engrave it in stone where no wind can ever erase
it.
If we do not forgive others of their transgression, nei-
ther will your heavenly Father forgive you-for whom
much is forgiven, much is required.
See you this Lord's Day, 10 a.m. service.

Palmeiro flunks steroid
test: Baltimore Orioles Ra-
fael Palmeiro blasted back to
reporters of never having
used steroids in his baseball
career to a congressional
panel in March. Five months.
later, "Mr. 3000," tested
positive and was suspended
for 10 days for steroid use.
While Palmeiro did not
deny using steroids, he said
he ingested them by acci-
dent. The 40-year-old player
became the league's seventh

FIND YOUR GUY AND get rid of the ball.That was the message duringthis play when
Walton hit the practice field last Friday. The Braves open their season at home against
Alabama Chrisitian on Aug. 19.


By Patrick Casey
Freeport High School has a
new baseball coach as Ray
Goffwas named last week to
replace Charlie Marello, who
resigned at the end of the
2005 season. Goff has
coached previously in South
Florida.
Walton Middle School
named Jennifer Sutton the
head coach of the girls bas-
ketball team for the Warriors
while Allison Shoaf will take
over as the new volleyball
coach.
Former OWC basketball
player Donell Taylor signed
a two-year guaranteed deal
with the Washington Wiz-
ards last Thursday. Taylor
played with his twin brother,
Ronell, at the University of
Alabama-Birmingham the
past two seasons.
Port St. Joe High School
will celebrate 50 years of foot-
ball on Shark Field on Sep-
tember 16 of the upcoming
season when the Sharks host
the Freeport Bulldogs. Port
St. Joe's first game ever
played on that field was Sep-
.tember 16, 1955 against the
Walton Braves, who were
then coached by Mack Rooks.
Using archive research, it
appears that the 1989 foot-
ball season is the only
winless campaign in Walton
football history. The 1989
squad went 0-10, though it
was rumored to have re-
ceived a forfeit from Quincy
Shanks for using an ineli-
gible player after the season.
Regardless, it appears that
1989 was the only season
when the Braves did not win
at least one contest on the
field. Walton has had five
seasons when the football
team won only one contest,
the last time in 2001. Walton
defeated Panama City
Arnold in overtime to escape
a winless campaign that
year.
Three Walton basketball
players competed with a lo-
cal AAU team that placed
third at the Division II AAU
national tournament last
week at Disney's Wide World
of Sports. Darryl McGhee,
Jeremy Dunbar, and J
Leonard played for the North
Florida Sharks, who went 6-
2 in the tourney, losing only
to the two teams that met for
the title.

REVIEW

player to fail a test under a
toughened major league pol-
icy that took effect in March.
But Congress isn't finished
with Palmeiro yet. They now
want to investigate whether
the Baltimore Orioles player
committed perjury when he
testified in front of the panel
in March saying he had never
took performance-enhancing
drugs.
O'Neal signs lucrative
contract: Shaquille O'Neal
walked away with less
money than he probably real-
ized, but he told reporters
that it wasn't all about the
money, but winning more
championships. Miami
Heat's O'neal signed a $100
million, five-year contract.
He will make $20 million
dollars over the next five
years. O'Neal was slated to
make $30.6 million in the
next year, but opted to go
with only $20 million and an
extended contract with the
Heat.
Famous jockey retires:
After winning over $300 mil-
lion in his 32-year riding
career, Hall of Fame horse
jockey, Pat Day hangs up the
saddle and retired last
Wednseday.
The 51-year-old Day was
inducted into the racing's
Hall of Fame in 1991, and he
ends his career ranked
fourth in victories with 8,804
victories and with more
earnings than any other
rider at $297,941,912. He

has also won 12 Breeders
Cup races, including the
1992 Kentucky Derby.
Mazzilli is let go by Ori-
oles: If things were not bad
enough for the Baltimore
Orioles with the latest
charges and suspension of
Rafael Palmeiro, now the
team has cut ties with man-
ager Lee Mazzilli.
The firing came last Thurs-
day, just a few days after one
of the biggest players of to-
day was taken down because
of steroids. The announce-
ment of Mazzilli's firing was
announced just two hours
before the Orioles and L.A.
Angels game.
Sam Perlozzo was immedi-
alty named interim manager
and won his first game
against the Angels that night
to break an eight-game los-
ing streak. A permanent
manager has not yet been an-
nounced.
Gunter dies at 66: Sue
Gunter, a Hall of Fame coach
and pioneer in women's col-
lege basketball, died Thurs-
day at age 66 from complica-
tions of emphysema.
She was the LSU women's
coach and coached the Lady
Tigers until 2004. Gunter
coached for 40 years, 22 at
LSU and carried them to 13
NCAA tournaments.
Stewart wins Brickyard
400: After many years of
training, wishing and
dreaming, Tony Stewart
crossed the finish line in


Indianapolis on Sunday to
claim the victory. Despite the
fact that he had longed to win
the Indianaoplis 500, Ste-
wart didn't care.
The win was the fourth
victory in the last six races
and seventh top-10 finish in
a row for the new Nextel
Cups points leader.
The following are the top


10 finishers:
1) Tony Stewart, Chevy
2) Kasey Kahne, Dodge

Marino steps into history:
Dan Marino celebrated in the
best way he knew possible
after his induction into the
Football Hall of Fame in
Canton, OH this past Sun-
day. He rared back and threw
a long completion.
With a wave of fans wear-
ing his No. 13 Miami Dol-
phins jersey, he thanked all


those who had stuck by him
and made him the player that
he was during his NFL car-
rer.
During Marino's career he
had 4,967 completions, 8, 358
passes, 61,361 yards and 420
touchdowns. His outstand-
ing record of 48 touchdowns
in 1984, was finally passed
last year by Peyton Manning.


but the Freeport team won the next time the teams played.
Bell said their true sportsman-like behavior was the same
before and after each game and commended all the players
on remembering that "it's how you play the game" that counts.

Tube

system

installed

on beach

in south

Walton

By TIANA LARSEN
"Do you want a sandy
beach or a war zone? You
must have a consensus as a
community," said Jay
Sample, president of Ad-
vanced Coastal Technology,
Inc., a firm that supplies
geosynthetic devices for
beach restoration.
Sample gave a brief pre-
sentation on his company
and its products at the begin-
ning of an emergency Walton.
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) meet-
ing held on August 1. Since
the meeting was called to ad-
dress sand color on the beach,
some audience members
complained that they
thought it was out of line to
listen to "one man's sales
pitch," but BCC Chair Ken
Pridgen explained that
Sample had given a presen-
tation to the South Walton
Tourist Development Coun-
cil, and that he, Pridgen, had
invited him to the meeting
because he thought he had
some interesting things to
say.
Sample's presentation was
interesting, and at least one
south Walton beachfront
property owner is having a
Pro Tec Tube system in-
stalled. Sample also got to
the heart of the fears caus-
ing the recent 'shore wars'

"Inlet Beach is not as you
remember it," Bob Mitchell
told 25 or so members as-
sembled at Inlet Beach Wa-
ter System's annual meeting
on Aug. 6.
The water system general
manager pointed to a map
displaying areas where de-
velopment projects in
progress, publicly an-
nounced, and anticipated
had been colored in. The col-
ored areas took up perhaps
a third of the utility service
area.

THIS PRO TECH TUBE beach dune stabilization system is under construction at the
Gulf Trace subdivision in south Walton. Property owner Lee Perry has applied for a permit
from the Department of Environmental Protection to make this a permanent installation, he
told the Beach Breeze. When completed, the system, which has received mixed reviews from
the regulatory agencies, will be covered with sand and vegetated.


when he remarked that, "The
dunes are not migrating,
they are being eroded. When
you see the vertical cliff, it is
the beginning of the end."
That vertical cliff, where
dunes once protected ocean-
front property in south Wal-
ton, was perilously eroded by
Hurricane Dennis' storm
surge. Since then, all kinds
of measures, both short and
long term, are being looked
at.
Sample claims that his sys-
tem, which consists of spe-
cialized fabrics filled with
sand in a sort of a wedge
shape that recreates the lost
sand in front of the vertical
cliff, is a long term solution.


Unlike dredge and fill-beach
renourishment, it can be in-
stalled quickly.
The system requires off-
site sand to fill the tubes, and
then about three feet of sand
is placed on top and planted.
Sample described it as a so-
called "soft" solution, as op-
posed to armoring with hard
materials like rocks, rip rap
or seawalls. This particular
system differs from single
geotubes, or sand socks,
which have also been used
elsewhere.
As proof of the effective-
ness of the system, Sample
showed aerial photographs of
the coast in Vero Beach,
Florida, where a condo com-


plex called Caledon Shores
had a system installed quite
a few years ago. It appeared
from the photos that the com-
plex suffered less erosion
than adjacent properties.
Sample invited the audi-
ence to check it out, so the
Beach Breeze spoke with
Elliot Merrill Community
Management, the association
management firm for
Caledon Shores. A spokesper-
son confirmed that the sys-
tem made it through two hur-
ricanes (Frances and Jeanne)
and that, although the tubes
had.to be recovered with
sand, overall Caledon Shores

After an investigation of
various alternatives and
price comparisons, the Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) fol-
lowed the recommendation of
Brad Pickle, beach manage-
ment director of the South
Walton Tourist Development
Council (TDC), and approved
a motion to rebuild 21 beach
accesses with Trex, the com-
posite material that re-
sembles wood but requires
less maintenance.
Floridian Construction, a
local firm that has built
walkovers for the TDC in the
past, was awarded the con-
tract calling for completion
within 60 days.
Some will be ready before
that, Pickel said: The 21 were
chosen in order to provide
access to all sections of the
beach.
Since seventy-five percent
of the cost will be paid by
FEMA, the difference be-
tween wood and Trex
amounts to only $5,000,
Pickel said.
The TDC also looked at alu-
minum and other metal
boardwalks, including re-
tractable designs or designs
that can be winched up out
of the way when a storm
threatens.
WaterColor recently in-
stalled an aluminum access
that was a one-of-a-kind pro-
totype built by Custom Fab-


ricators in Freeport, but the
time it takes to remove it
would be prohibitive if the
TDC used something like
that for all 56 of its accesses,
Pickel explained.
"We will continue to inves-
tigate, but I recommend we
not go in that direction right
now," Pickel said. He also told
the BCC.that the Depart-
ment of Environmental Pro-
tection does not favor sand
ramps, an alternative the
BCC had requested be looked
into.
"We cannot build these
where we only have a five-
foot sliver, they are difficult
to climb, and they tend to
turn into cattle trails, caus-
ing erosion," Pickel ex-
plained.

The accesses to be rebuilt
under the 60-day contract
are the following: Norwood
(west end), Beach Highlands
(Stallworth Lake area), Dune
Allen Regional, Lake Cause-
way, Ed Walline, Gulfview
Heights, Blue Mountain Re-
gional, Blue Lake, Van Ness
Butler (between Seaside and
WaterColor); Thyme/Dog-
wood, Live Oak, CR- 395,
Gardenia, Andalusia, Santa
Clara Regional, Beachwood
(Tom Thumb), One Seagrove,
Rams Gate (Eastern Lake),
Sea Breeze, South Wall
Street (Inlet Beach), Inlet
Beach Regional (one walk-
over).


Gulf Trace agrees


to sewer service


INLET BEACH WATER System's board members (from left,) Jim Kelly, Paul Craig Rob-
erts, Bob Mitchell, Frank Comer, and Dr. Patrick Jones.


system now has about 400
members. Mitchell foresees a
time when that number
could increase to 2,000 or
more.
While many long-time
property owners in Inlet
Beach, Walton County's east-
ernmost coastal community,
have been reluctant to accept
the scale of development that
has swept the remainder of
the coastal area, it is this new


construction that has pro-
vided Inlet Beach Water Sys-
tem with the financial
muscle to meet a challenging
county mandate.
The Inlet Beach commu-
nity had been without cen-
tral sewer until recent years.
Last year, Walton County
gave Inlet Beach Water Sys-
tem a July 2005 time line to
install a sewer system in In-
let Beach.


At the Aug. 7 meeting
Mitchell reported that sewer
is in fact "ready to pump" to
serve the south side of Inlet
Beach, as soon as there is a
"dry day" for Gulf Power to
provide electricity for the lift
station.
Mitchell added that a lift
station has also gone in to
serve north Inlet Beach and

After repeated tropical
storms and hurricanes ex-
posed beachside septic sys-
tems in the Gulf Trace sub-
division, several meetings,
hours of discussions and
plenty of controversy, Gulf
Trace will finally be outfitted
with public water and sewer.
"I believe we have a viable
solution," said Dewey Wilson,
CEO of Regional Utilities, at
the August 9 Walton County
Board of County Commission
(BCC) meeting.
Wilson asked for and re-
ceived a $400,000 loan from
the BCC to install lines for
both water and sewer in Gulf
Trace and nearby
Bannerman Beach, a small
private neighborhood.
"All of the coastal area in
Regional's franchise area will
have public water and sewer
now," Wilson said.


Most of the owners near
the beach, including James
Ray, who owns 10 properties
in Gulf Trace, have agreed to
hook on, Wilson told the
BCC.
The property owners are
getting a deal. The tap fees
will be half price, and will be
financed interest-free over 20
years.
The bill for minimum us-
age will be about $72 a
month, Wilson said.
After Regional Utilities
does another planned bond
sale, the loan will be paid
back to the county.

Hook-up will not be man-
datory, but by law if public
sewer is available, a failed
septic tank cannot receive a
repair permit, so eventually
most of the homes in Gulf
Trace are expected to con-
nect.


State permits large-scale beach restoration


By DOTTY NIST

Brad Pickel, beach man-
agement director for the
South Walton Tourist Devel-
opment Council, announced
that the county is in receipt
of a state permit to do the
long-planned large-scale
beach nourishment project
along almost five miles on


the west end of the county.

The state joint coastal per-
mit includes the city of
Destin, where approximately
two adjoining miles of
beachfront are slated for res-
toration.

After the state Department
of Environmental Protection


(DEP) announced intent to
issue the permit last spring,
it was challenged by
beachfront property owners
in Walton County and
Destin. The result of a sub-
sequent administrative hear-
ing, which examined issues
raised by the property own-
ers, was favorable for the lo-
cal governments.


Pickel said there were no
changes to the permit as a
result of the hearing proceed-
ings. He noted that a U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers
permit will also be required
prior to beginning the project
but that he expects that it
will be issued quickly now
that the state permit is in
hand.


TDC staff members have
begun preparing bid docu-
ments for the restoration
work and requests for pro-
posals from lending institu-
tions in order to partially
fund the project, Pickel com-
mented.

He expects to hold a pre-
bid conference for dredge


contractors in September.
Walton County still antici-
pates getting started on the
restoration work in late Oc-
tober or possibly early No-
vember, Pickel said.

The Herald-Breeze was
unable to obtain comment
from DEP regarding the joint
coastal permit by press time.

Scenic Highway

designation for CR-30A


By KEN LITTLE
Walton County Public Infor-
mation Officer
The Florida Scenic High-
ways Program preserves,
maintains, protects and en-
hances the intrinsic re-
sources of scenic corridors
through a sustainable bal-
ance of conservation and land
use. Scenic resources are
combinations of natural and
manmade features that give
the visual landscape remark-
able character and signifi-
cance. These scenic resources
are what make our County
Road 30A (CR-30A) corridor
a distinctive place.
A scenic highway designa-
tion protects the scenic val-
ues of an area bringing sub-
sequent benefits to the com-
miunity. Resource protection
.is the primary benefit of be-
coming a Florida scenic high-
way. Designated corridors in
Florida have demonstrated
more success in getting grant
money to provide resources


for future generations to en-
joy. A scenic highway desig-
nation can also enhance com-
munity identity and pride,
encouraging citizen commit-
ment to preserving commu-
nity values.
It's time for CR-30A to gain
this designation. We are in
the "eligibility" phase of the
program now. CR-30A is lo-
cated in areas of outstanding
natural beauty with distinc-
tive communities, attrac-
tions, recreational opportuni-
ties, and businesses.
Application is submitted to
the Florida Department of
Transportation through a
citizens' corridor advocacy
groip that is forming up and
beginning work now. Join the
Corridor Advocacy Group
and share in the process.

tact Claire Bannerman, Cor-
ridor Advocacy Group coordi-
nator, at Commissioner

THESE ROCKS ON THE BEACH at the Stallworth Pre-
serve will have to be removed, according to the U.S. Fish &
Wildlife Service. No "hard" structures including rocks or sea-
walls are allowed there, a condition of a Habitat Conserva-
tion Plan. When the small subdivision was developed, an
"incidental take" permit was required as a condition of im-
pacts to the endangered beach mouse, which is still found in
the Stallworth Lake area.
The 30-year permit has conditions that are incorporated
into the covenants and restrictions, and that type of activity
is not authorized. "It is a constant educational process," said
Lorna Patrick of U.S. Fish & Wildlife. The situation high-
lights the difficulties that arise when a homeowners' asso- "
ciation is tasked with complex duties. The county has en-
countered a similar situation when stormwater facilities and
roads are turned over to associations; sometimes the tasks
are not property carried out as intended.


THE THIRD ANNUAL "Battle at the Creek' charity golf
event will be held at Camp Creek Golf Club on October 16,
2005 at noon. Shotgun start, four-man scramble format, with
food and door prizes following the event.
There will be prizes for closest to the pin, longest drive,
straightest drive and for hole-in-one, a 2006 GMC Yukon
SLT.
Make reservations by calling (850) 259-3567.

Small Business Administration to stay in Walton County


The U.S. Small Business
Administration (SBA) disas-
ter loan staff will remain in
Walton County after the joint
state/federal disaster recov-
ery center closes, according to
SBA Acting Disaster Area
Director Frank Skaggs.
On Monday, August 8, SBA
began to operate a SBA Di-
saster Outreach Center at
the prior disaster recovery
center location in Walton
County. SBArepresentatives
will be available in Walton
County at the Coastal
Branch Library, 336
Greenway Trail in Santa
Rosa Beach, with hours on
Monday from 10 a.m. to 6
p.m. and Tuesdays through
Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m,


until further notice.
"I thought it was important
to have our loan staff stay in
Walton County a little while
longer to help area
homeowners, renters, and
business owners that still
need help with the SBA loan
application process. Provid-
ing individual help is an im-
portant part ofwhat we do to
help people recover from a
disaster," Skaggs said.

"Don't wait to settle your
insurance claim before turn-
ing in your completed SBA
disaster loan application..
SBA loan officers do not need
insurance settlement infor-
mation to process your ap-
plication. We don't want any-

that he expects everything
"in ground" to be in place by
the end of August on the
North side.
"October will be a good
time to plan for sewer on the
north side," Mitchell com-
mented. He added that if
sewer is needed before then
in north Inlet Beach, it can
be extended from the south
side of U.S. 98.
Mitchell said he was proud
to report that the sewer sys-
tem is being totally funded by
developer impact fees and
not by water system mem-
bers. No loans and no bonds
have been necessary, he ex-
plained.
S Mitchell noted that the de-
velopers he has dealt with
Shave been "absolutely won-
derful working with me."
What's more, he said, all of
them have shared the long-
term residents' vision of
keeping Inlet Beach a single-
family neighborhood commu-
nity, he added.
Nine septic systems were
lost in Hurricane Dennis dur-
ing Hurricane Dennis, and.
two homes at the end of
Lakeshore Drive were."wiped
out," Mitchell reported. He
explained that it is unlikely
that the health department
will allow the septic tanks to
be replaced in south Inlet

is available.

Sbers have not had to fund the

For an individual with per-
sonal property and/or home
losses, a completed applica-
tion will also keep the door
open to other types of assis-
tance. Those homeowners
and renters who do not re-
turn a completed SBA appli-
cation may be disqualifying
themselves from other types

sible grant assistance.

sewer system installation,
they will be required to pay
sewer hook-up fees and
monthly charges once they go
off their septic tanks, and
those charges are not insig-
nificant. Some concern was
expressed by members re-
garding these costs, and the
suggestion was made that
current owners should get a
price "break" for sewer hook-
up.
While the response was
that hook-up costs are fixed,
the board members sug-
gested setting up a payment
plan for members in need of
such a plan.
A bylaws change was ap-
proved to allow board mem-
bers to be compensated for
work apart from their board
duties, such as Mitchell's re-
cent work as general man-
ager. Another approved
change provides that a vote
of two-thirds of the members
(an increase from 50 percent
plus one) would be required
for the sale or liquidation of
the water company.
The meeting included elec-
tions to fill two board seats.
Jim Kelly was chosen to re-

Mitchell received several

AT THE1


Sitting watching television
after a long and busy Sun-
day, the news station flashed
a "special report" notifica-
tion and my heart sank. I
didn't know if the President
had been shot, if there was
another attack on the nation
or if aliens had touched
ground.
But the news, though not,
as traumatic as the death of a '
president or of an attack, still
ft""d-asm"M b -w :%f


made me sink into my couch
and swallow hard. ABC had
just released a news bulletin
announcing that, long-time
anchor, Peter Jennings had
passed away a few minutes
earlier at his home in New
York City after months of
battling lung cancer.


Jennings made the an-
nouncement of his retire-
ment on April 5, 2005 and
shared with the world that
he had been diagnosed with
lung cancer. A very sobering
and somber time for many
journalists, reporters, media
workers and press members
who had followed his career
and constructed their own
career's after the broadcast-
ing icon.
For more than .two dec-
ades, Jennings, along with
Tom Brokaw and Dan
Rather, dominated the air-
waves and the evening news.
The team of reporters capti-
vated audiences worldwide
as they sat down for their
evening meal.
Jennings was said to be


RUSS TRAVER'S WHIMSICAL acrylic beach and water
scenes are always a favorite at the West Indies Market at
Rosemary Beach. The next market takes place Aug. 13 and 14
with more than 60 vendors scheduled to exhibit.

with the proceeds going to
support artistic and cultural
programming throughout
Northwest Florida.
The 50 chairs are currently
on display in Seaside, Rose-
mary Beach, Alys Beach,

Watercolors and the TDC.

Design Society of Fort Wal-
ton Beach announces the call
to artists for is 6th Annual
Photography and Digital

particularly favored and
watched mostly by those in
urban areas. They said he
had a compassion for the
news and broke it down to the
point' that anyone could
understand the point he was
trying to make.
Though he was never
known to be emotional or
show favoritism for one issue
or the next, the one broadcast
that will forever be burned in
the minds of the American
television audience will be
his coverage on Sept.11,
2005. This was the one point
that Jennings let his guard
down and showed human
emotion during the time of
such great tragedy.
As the World Trade Center
towers fell and as the people
were running through the
streets of Manhatten, Jen-
nings told their stories
through his eyes and his
compassion helped millions
to be able to cope with the
national tragedy.

It was reported that Jen-
nings had logged more than
60 hours of news and air time
during that one week alone.
Despite producers, family
and other press members
encouraging him to go home
and try to rest, he said that
his place was in the anchor
seat and his job was to tell
the nation and try to over-
come this incident with
them.
I Canadian born and follow-
ing in the steps of his father,


Charles Jennings, he knew
his calling was in the media
field. His father's picture
that was taken after the
senior Jennings was named
as head of the Canadian
Broadcasting Corporation's
news division, hung proudly
in his office.
To many viewer's surprise,
he never went to college and
even recently it was told that
he did not even finish high
school. News anchors and
reporters say that is why
Jennings always said he
could always learn more and
the reason he always tried a
little harder than other re-
porters on the news floor.
His career included nu-
merous presidential de-
bates, campaigns and elec-
tions, Olympic games, war,
local issues and head of state
interviews. All done with a
professionalism that many
said only could have been
conducted by Peter Jen-
nings.
As the world says good-bye
to a television icon and the
world of journalism mourns
not only the loss of an incred-
ible journalist, but also a
friend, it will be strange
looking at the new anchors
that will begin to not only try
to fill his shoes, but also
those of Tom Brokaw since
his retirement in November
of 2004. But like the un-
timely death of Peter Jen-
nings, life will go on and the
news is made every waking
day.

Art in Public Places


highlighted at Topsail


By DOTTYNIST

Artists, community lead-
ers, officials and other digni-
taries and the media were
present on Aug. 5 at Topsail
Hill Preserve State Park for
an introduction-to the Art in
Public Places (AIPP) pro-
gram in Walton County.
Aimed at fostering commu-
nity pride and identity by
providing work by local art-
ists for display in public
spaces, the AIPP program
was initiated by the TDC.
Businesses are invited to
share in the effort. This year
Silver Sands Factory Stores
is partnering in the program.
Several local artists were
present for the Aug. 5 event.
Dorothy Starbuck was the
first Artist of the Year se-
lected by the TDC in 2003.
Her works are now displayed
at the TDC office. Current
Artist of the Year Justin
Gaffrey also has work dis-
played at the TDC office, and
one of his paintings will be
donated to the Chautauqua
Hall in DeFuniak Springs in


conjunction With the AIPP
program.
The Aug. 5 event included
the presentation of Autumn
Tides festival art work by
Donna Burgess for display at
Topsail Hill Preserve State
Park.
Among other local AIPP
supporters are the Chair Af-
fair, a charity auction that is
part of the Autumn Tides
shoulder season festival and
which displays hand-painted
adirondack chairs in various
locations, plus two local pub-
lic institutions, the Coastal
Branch Library and the Free-
port Library, both of which
display work by local artists.
"We feel that art and cul-
ture is such an important
part ofWalton County and by
incorporating it into public
places we will be, not only
enhancing the community,
but also strengthening our
image as an eclectic destina-
tion," said TDC Executive
Director Kriss Titus.
Information on the AIPP
program is available by call-
ing the TDC at 267-1216.

didn't lose that much sand
from their beachfront.
Sea turtles have success-
fully nested over the instal-
lations, Sample said, and
they have been permitted by
both the Department of En-
vironmental. Protection
(DEP) and the Army Corps of
Engineers.
However, the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife told the Beach
Breeze that data confirming
turtle nesting was hard to
come by, and expressed some
reservations about the prod-
uct, which they said is de-
signed for a five or ten year
storm, not a hurricane.
In January 2005, the DEP
asked engineering firm
PBS&J to evaluate an instal-
lation on Cape San Bias in.
Gulf County. The sand-filled
system was installed in front
of five beachfront homes
where erosion was beginning
to undermine the homes.
After the storm surge from
Hurricane Ivan hit the Cape
San Blas area, PSB&J evalu-
ated the post-storm condi-
tions. The report notes that
in the 17 months between the
installation and Ivan, the
system did not encounter the
storm conditions for which it
was designed. (Five or ten
year storm, not a hurricane.)
According to the report,
waves from Ivan went over
the top of the tube system
and trapped water behind it,
creating a channel. "This re-
sulted in a greater change in
the vertical profile and likely
caused increased erosion
damage in the lee (landward
side) of the Pro Tec Tube,"
states the engineer's report.
The report does also note
that while other coastal
armoring structures in the
region were damaged, the
Pro Tech Tube remained in-
tact and undamaged.
Since then, a retaining wall
has been constructed land-
ward of the geotube in Gulf
County, said Lorna Patrick
with the U.S. Fish & Wild-
life Service.
Sample might have an-
gered some people in atten-
dance that evening with his
comments about seawalls,
which are being applied for
in record numbers, according
to the DEP. "When waves in-
teract with seawalls, you can
kiss your beach goodbye," he
said.
This is, he explained, be-
cause when waves hit a sea-
wall,,either the wall will give
way or the beach will be
swept away. "Nothing verti-
cal can stand up in time to
the force of wave energy,"
Sample said, noting that a
one foot wave can move a
five- ton boulder.
The Duke University Pro-
gram for the Study of Devel-
oped Shorelines states that
the function of a seawall is to


protect land from the impact
of wave energy, and that the
associated problems are ac-
tive and passive erosion of
the front beach, loss of sedi-
ment supply, scouring at the
toe of the wall, and preven-
tion of the beaches from mi-
grating landward, a natural
response to sea level rise.
Could global warming be
playing a part in sea level
rise and increased frequency
of hurricanes? According to
scientists, melting ice is the


greatest factor in rising sea
levels. Just last month, a gla-
ciologist from the University
of Maine, Gordon Hamilton,
took the first-ever direct
measurements on the surface
of a massive glacier in
Greenland.
.In an article from the In,
ter Press Service News
Agency, Hamilton said his
discovery shows that after 40
years of stability, the glacier
has now accelerated the
dumping of large quantities


of ice and water into the
North Atlantic. Hamilton
predicted that, if the condi-
tions that caused the accel-
eration of melting are hap-
pening elsewhere, it would
mean sea levels around the
world will rise faster than
predicted. -'
PBS&J's report on the Pro
Tech Tube in Gulf County
notes that the site experi-
enced eight tropical storms
and/or hurricanes in the last
ten years.


PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE
Please be advised that the Walton County Board of Commissioners will hold a
Public Hearing on August 23, 2005 at 4:00 pm, or soon thereafter, to:

'j I I i




Notice is hereby given that the Walton County Board of Commissioners will conduct a
public hearing to consider reimposing non-ad Valorem special assessments for the con-
struction of impoundment improvements within the boundaries of the Imperial Lakes
'Municipal Service Benefit Unit for the Fiscal Year beginning October 1, 2005.
The hearing will be held at 4:00 PM, or soon thereafter, on August 23, 2005, at the
South Walton Courthouse Annex located at 31 Coastal Centre Blvd., Santa Rosa Beach,
Florida for the purpose of receiving public comment on the special assessments. All
affected property owners have a right to appear at the hearing and to file written objec-
tions with the County Commission within 20 days of this notice.
If you should decide to appeal any decision made by the Counly Commission with
respect to any matter considered at the hearing or at any subsequent meeting to which
the board has continued its deliberations, you will need a record of the proceedings and
may need to ensure that a verbatim record is made, including the testimony and evidence
upon which the appeal is to be made. In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities
Act, persons needing a special accommodation or an interpreter to participate in these
proceedings should contact the County Administrator's Office at (850) 892-8155 at least
seven days, prior to the date of the hearing. -
The assessment for each tax parcel will be based in part upon the total number of par-
cel units and in part on the total amount of water front footage attributed to each tax parcel
on the date the assessment was originally imposed. The estimated per parcel unit amount
for the Fiscal Year beginning October 1, 2005 is $212.46. The estimated amount per foot
of water front footage for the Fiscal Year beginning October 1, 2005, is $2.29. A more spe-
cific description of the impoundment improvements and the method of computing the
assessment for each parcel of property are set forth in the Initial Assessment Resolution,
adopted by the County Commission on July 22, 2003, as amended by the Final
Assessment Resolution, adopted by the County Commission on August 26, 2003. Copies
of the Capital Project and Related Service Assessment Ordinance (Ordinance No. 2003-
11), the Initial Assessment Resolution (Resolution No. 2003-51), the Final Assessment
Resolution (Resolution No. 2003-61), and the updated Assessment Roll for the upcoming
fiscal year are available for inspection in the Walton County Administration Office located
at 117 Montgomery Circle, DeFuniak Springs, Florida between the hours of 8:00 am and
4:30 pm, Monday through Friday.
The third installment of the assessments will be collected on the Ad Valorem tax bill to
be mailed in November 2005, as authorized by section 197.3632, Florida Statutes. Failure
to pay the assessments will cause a tax certificate to be issued against the property which
may result in a loss of title.
If you have any questions, please contact the Walton County Administration Office at
(850) 892-8155, Monday through Friday between 8:00 am and 4:30 pm.
Please be advised and governed accordingly.
