Economic


Development


Council executive


director resigns


By BRUCE COLLIER
Tom Powell resigned last
week as executive director of
the Economic Development
Council of Walton County,
Inc. Powell has been with
EDC since 1993.
Despite the name of the
organization, the EDC is a
private company, separate
from Walton County govern-
ment. The EDC has a volun-
teer board of directors and
one paid employee, Powell,
whose salary has been
funded by the Walton County
Commission.
Powell's resignation was
made at the August 17 meet-
ing of the EDC. The effective
date will be August 31, 2005.
"I am leaving to pursue
other options." said Powell.
He would not specify what
those would be.
Destin resident Jim
Breitenfeld will act as in-
terim executive director of
the EDC. Breitenfeld will
serve in the transition, and
assist in locating a successor
to Powell.
Breitenfeld has worked
with Enterprise Florida. Inc.
and the EDC of Okaloosa
County.
Responding to reports that
he was "invited" to resign,
Powell said "I resigned be-
cause it was best for me, and
best for EDC."
EDC board member Mike


By PATRICK CASEY
Parents with children at-
tending Paxton's K-12 school
are concerned with bats in
the school. The issue brought
Superintendent Carlene
Anderson to a meeting with
those concerned parents on
Thursday night as she tried
to discuss and reassure
people that the school dist ict
would try to solve the elusive
problem.
Bats have apparently
found a way to roost in the
attics of some of the buildings
on Paxton's campus and may
even inhabit some df the
thick trees that surround the
softball field at Paxton. A ra-
bid bat found in Malone has
also stirred some locallfears
that a similar finding could
crop up in Walton County.
Paxton teacher and softball
coach Charles Barefield
found about 18 bats looking
for a place to sleep in the
building where he teaches
learning-disabled students.
Bats have been a problem
at the school for some time,
but the nuisance has, esca-
lated in the last year. The
smell of bat waste had be-
come more noticeable in the
past year and the little crit-
ters have turned up from
time to time during the day-
time. Fortunately, less than
one percent of bats carry ra-
bies and you cannot catch
rabies from bat excrement.
Those facts haven't exactly
eased concerns that more are
lurking in building walls or
attics. Bats can be very hard


Richards also had no com-
ment on that report. Instead,
Richards praised Powell's
performance during his 12
years with EDC.
"There are two enterprise
zones in the county that
wouldn't be here if not for
him,"said Richards. "[Powell]
lobbied with the legislature
for EDC on those zones."
Richards also pointed to
the Blue Ridge distribution
company's decision to relo-
cate to Freeport as among
Powell's significant accom-
plishments.

Walton County District
Three Commissioner Larry
Jones commented that he
and Powell "had a different
philosophy" about develop-
ment.
"Tom's philosophy was sort
of'hold on to what you've got
until you can hit a long ball,"'
said Jones. "I think we need
to take a long view, not just:
sit back passively."
Jones observed that "there
are a lot of opportunities, and
we need to triage them for
what's most important. We
have to look at what's here
today, even if it's on a smaller
scale."
"We wish [Powell] well,"
said Jones, adding that he, is
looking forward to a good
working relationship withthe
EDC and its new director.


to uproot once they have
found a warm, dark place to
call home. The district hired
a bat expert to remove the
animals last year, but appar-
ently that remedy did not
last.
"We do not see it as a ma-
jor problem now because
,within the last two weeks we
have taken extensive efforts
to clean the attic," Anderson
notes. "We have had the
health department to inves-
tigate for us to see what they
could find and they tell us
that there is absolutely no
sign of bat residue and that
they have seen no signs of
bats."
Some parents at the meet-
ing were not convinced that
the problem has been dealt
with sufficiently. Anderson
has asked for the county's
health department to ask the
state to investigate in an ef-
fort to ease parents' minds.
The district has tried to
help the situation by install-
ing "sonic blasters" that are
supposed to repel the crea-
tures and sealed up holes
that may have allowed the
bats to enter the buildings.

On Friday, state experts
told the district that no
health risk exists as long as
bat waste was removed. The
state health department de-
clined to conduct further
tests and Superintendent
Anderson plans to have all of
the rooms and ventilation
systems in the affected build-
ing cleaned again this week.


INVESTIGATORS EXA-MINE THE SCENE of fatal airplane crash, east of Freeport.


Two killed in crash of


private plane near Freeport


By BRUCE COLLIER
Two men were killed in the
crash of a private plane on
the afternoon of August. 20.
The crash occurred on a pri-
vate grass airstrip off of Joe
Dugger Road, east of Free-,
port.
According to Walton
County Sheriffs Office pub-
lic information officer Lt.
Frank Owens, sheriff's per-
sonnel responded to the'
crash at approximately 4:48
p.m.
Also responding to. the
crash were Freeport Fire


Department, Walton County
Emergency Medical Service,
and Walton County Emer-
gency Operations Center.
The plane was a two-seat
Champion Citabria. The pi-
lot,was Fred Bogle, 63, of
Seagrove. The single passen-
ger was Ruber Rios, 40, of
Tallahassee.
Bogle was dead at the
scene, and Rios died after
being taken to a local hospi-
tal.
The National Transporta-
tion Safety Board was con-
tacted, and sent seniorinves-


tigator Tim Monville to the
scene to begin the process of
determining the cause of the
crash.
Monville, Walton County
Sheriff's deputies, and tow
and recovery workers were
present on the scene on the
Monday after the crash. The
aircraft was lifted and turned
over to facilitate examina-
tion.
Monville said that he was
informed by a witness to the
crash that the plane banked
to the left upon taking off.
The witness said that it ap-


peared there was not full
power in one of the engines.
AMonville has examined the
airplane's flight controls and
vents, and both appeared to
be normal.
"We drained the fuel
tanks," he said. "There were
12 gallons in the left tank
and 4.5 in the right."

Monville will next exam-
ine the engine, and other evi-
dence. He estimated that it
may take 6 9 months to
reach a conclusion as to the
cause of the crash.


By BENGRAFTON
Freeport, Florida is the
approximate center of
telephone exchange 835
and zip code 32439. Ca-
sual observation provides
indisputable evidence
that change is afoot in its
community area from
Bruce in the east to Port-
land in the west and from
Rock Hill in the north to
.Choctawhatchee Bay in
the south. New highway
turn-outs to serve traffic
going to new business
complexes and
subdivisions are under
construction east and
west of town on SR 20 and
north and south on U.S.
331. Offices, stores and
houses are going up every-
where. There are thirteen
residential developments
approved inside of the city
limits which taken to-
Sgether will yield about
3,600 new housing units
at build-out. Work on six
approved business sites is
also underway. Other de-
velopments, either in the
planning or construction
stage, outside of the city
limits will probably yield
at least this many more
housing units upon
completion. All of this
comes with many growing
pains.
The impact of the devel-
opment activity is re-
flected in the number of


residential units sold and the
prices paid for these units.
For example, in the Freeport
community area, sales of
1,250 to 1,500 sq. ft. resi-
dences through the seven
months ending July 31,2005
already exceed the
annual number sold in 2003,
the previous year reviewed.
Prices paid for theseresi-
dences, at an average of over
$250,000 are almost double
the average of $126,000 paid
in 2003. Sales of larger and
smaller residences are fol-
lowing these trends. At the
same time, the Freeport area
business community is grow-
ing rapidly. New warehouses,


heavy equipment sales, dis-
tributors, construction con-
tractors, engineering, and
medical and dental offices
are opening along the U.S.
331 and CR 20 corridors and
in the Walton County Free-
port Industrial Park.
.The city, which has already
expanded its water and sew-
age infrastructure, is pursu-
ing projects to furnish water
and sewer service to resi-
dents and businesses located
within a large portion of the
32439 area code boundaries.
A significant up-grade of
the waste water treatment
plant, located in Freeport's
Bay Loop area, will come on


line within a few weeks.
Other area sewage treat-
ing
facilities are either under
construction or they are in
the engineering phase
with construction planned
for the immediate future.
The finished waste water
treating system will ex-
tend from the
Bay Loop area in the west
to the Black Creek com-
munity in the east and
south from Freeport to
Choctawhatchee Bay.

State judge recommends dismissal of Kelly hearing request


Administrative Law Judge
Suzanne Hood from the
state's Division of Adminis-
trative Hearings ruled that a
Pensacola-based environ-
mental group and an OWC
student "lack standing" to
seek a hearing challenging
the pending sale by the OWC
Foundation of a portion of the
Mattie Kelly estate property
in Destin and she cancelled
a tentative hearing that had


been set for Aug. 29.
Hood recommended that
the Okaloosa-Walton College
District Board of Trustees
dismiss a hearing request
from the Pensacola Gulf
CoastKeepers and OWC stu-
dent Marika Hammet and
said that the college's Board
of Trustees was "not required
to demand that the Founda-
tion sell or not sell the prop-
erty". Hood stated there was


"no injury in fact" and that
the claims of the environ-
mental group "are specula-
tive."
In addition to citing the
.pertinent sections of Florida
law related to her ruling,
Hood cited the June 3, 2005
Circuit Court ruling in favor
of the OWC Foundation by
Judge Robert Barron that
the proposed sale is not a vio-
lation of the last will and tes-


tament of Mattie Kelly nor in
violation of the deed from the
Kelly Estate that transferred
the property to the college's
foundation. Judge Barron, in
an earlier separate case, had
also ruled that the
CoastKeepers lacked legal
standing to pursue a case
against the OWC Foundation
in the Kelly matter.

Richburg, OWC president.
The college previously an-
nounced that the proceeds
from the sale of approxi-
mately 12 acres of the Destin
property, excluding the mau-
soleum portion of the estate,
will go to the permanent en-
dowment fund for the OWC
Mattie Kelly Cultural and
Environmental Institute
through the OWC Founda-
tion.
The OWC Foundation will
continue to own and main-
tain the grounds surround-
ing Mattie Kelly's mauso-
leum in perpetuity.
The OWC Foundation is
awaiting an appeal by Carol
Kelly of the original circuit
court ruling that granted the
Foundation the right to sell
a portion of the estate prop-
erty.
The earnings from the
OWG Mattie Kelly Cuiltural
and Environmental Institute
Endowment will underwrite
the cultural and environmen-

Kelly's gift to the college in-

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 25, 2005


A new look at an old scene


It is human nature to grow accustomed to that which we
see everyday, no matter how beautiful or striking. It's not
that we no longer appreciate a peaceful, idyllic scene, it's
just that we tend to forget how stunning that scene is to a
visitor who has never seen it before.
I have friends who live at the beach. At first, they spent
all their time out on the deck looking at the surf, but after a
while, they slowly retreated indoors and now they rarely
venture outside at all. Yet there are still plenty of people
willing to spend thousands, even millions of dollars for a
chance to view the very scene that has somehow become
common place to many of those who are already there.
The Lakeyard is another perfect example, as is the his-
toric district in downtown DeFuniak Springs. It's almost
like a movie set of a small American town in the 30s or 40s.
There are towns that spend hundreds of thousands of dol-
lars trying to create such a vista and yet, here where we
actually have the real thing, most of us walk down the street
without paying much attention to the architecture, the broad
sidewalks and awnings so reminiscent of a simpler, sweeter
time.
Human nature, I guess.
The same is true of special events. As years go by, folks
begin to forget all the work, the blood, sweat and tears that
go into putting events together. They forget that those same
forgotten volunteers also have to raise money to pay for the
cost of the events, for fireworks, for guest speakers, for
musicians, for insurance, for facility rental space for all
the things that go into making a special event special.
Consider the Chautauqua Assembly a unique cultural
event for DeFuniak Springs one hundred years ago, just as
it is today. With the exception of the movement's birthplace
in Chautauqua, New York, DeFuniak Springs is the last
surviving epicenter for a movement that was dedicated to
intellectual stimulation, religious discussion, artistic expres-
sion and unparalleled recreation.
Now it, too, is threatened.
I recently had a long discussion with the founder of our
modern-day Chautauqua Assembly, Diane Pickett, who told
me that this may have to be the last year for a Chautauqua

Editor,
Many otherwise law-abiding citizens in our community
continue to view impaired driving as a victimless crime. This
is a misconception. Impaired driving is not a victimless
crime! Every 32 minutes an impaired driver randomly kills
someone in the U.S. That means you or someone you know
are equally likely to be an innocent victmi of a driver imii
paired by alcohol or other drugs.
This year the chances are even greater that you or some-
one you know willibe affected. Alcohol-related traffic fatali-
ties and injuries have been rising in Florida since 1998.
Preliminary crash date indicates that at least 1,050 people
were killed in alcohol-related crashes during 2004.
As part of the You Drink & Drive. You Lose. Labor Day
'National Crackdown, the DeFuniak Springs Police Depart-
ment will be working with other law enforcement agencies
in Walton County to protect everyone from impaired driv-
ers. Now through September 5, 2005, the DeFuniak Springs
Police Department will be conducting high visibility enforce-
ment operations to identify and arrest impaired drivers.
We have adopted this tough stance because we want to
save lives during the holiday period. There were 17 people
killed in alcohol-related crashes during the 2003 Labor Day
holiday period. This loss of life is not acceptable!
There will be no warnings. The message is simple You
Drink and Drive. You Lose. Violators will lose their licenses.
In addition, the cost of a DUI arrest can be staggering -
towing charges, fines, court costs, lawyer fees, and increased
insurance rates can add up to more then $6,000.
Drive responsibly this holiday weekend. The life.you save
could be your own.

Assembly as we know it.
Despite drawing visitors from all over the eastern half of
the United States and wooing headline-making special'
guests, speakers and presenters from around the world,
apathy has begun to settle in. Despite having provided a
significant impact on the economy in the city of DeFuniak
Springs and its businesses, and putting the town back on
the cultural map, human nature has again begun to rob us
of our wonder and amazement over actually hosting such
an incredible event.
Instead, we stare slack-jawed at a TV whose top enter-
tainment offering is a brainless, dim-witted reality show
that bears no resemblance to reality, while our children sit
in front of their computer screens gasping over some vio-
lent gore-drenched 'game' where winning means killing the
most people in the bloodiest, most spectacular way.
I think part of the problem is that, one hundred years
ago, people sought out education and knowledge, they val-
ued it, hungered and thirsted for it in a way that we now do
not. The idea of being considered intelligent, well-informed,
witty, mannered and socially adept was highly prized then.
Turn away from that ideal at your own risk. We talk about
the 'dumbing-down' of America, of appealing to the lowest
common denominator, but where does that actually begin?,
With us, of course.
As for the Chautauqua Assembly, Diane told me that she's
simply tired of footing the bill, and going into the red year
after year, for an ideal that the rest of us seem to take for
granted, if we think of it at all.
Those of us who know Diane know that she is no shrink-
ing violet. In fact, she is widely known for her sharp, no-
holds-barred style of self-expression.
She told me that if there is no significant increase in local
support of the Assembly in February, she'll give it up. She
told me that she can think of plenty of things to do with her
time and her finances besides tossing it at an event that
most locals do not attend as spectators or support as volun-
teers.
Knowing Diane, I am convinced that she means every word
of it and I don't blame her. However, that's not the worst of
it, dear reader. Guess who has expressed an interest in tak-
ing it over?
According to Diane, the St. Joe Company wants it. Why is
that not a wonderful idea? Because they don't want to hold
it here anymore. They want to move it to one of their beach
communities in south Walton.
I guess I should be thankful that someone understands
what a treasure it is, but what do St. Joe folks know about
the Chautauqua movement, its history, is impact or how it
helped shape this town? Will they take special pride in its
heritage? Will they recognize and understand the signifi-
cance of the Hall of Brotherhood on the shores of Lake De-
Funiak or how important that majestic old building is to
the event?
Can you even imagine a Chautauqua Assembly held at
the beach? That's like holding the Indianapolis 500 in Walla
Walla, Washington, or the Kentucky Derby in Miami.
Well, friends, if we do not step up to the plate and em-
brace our special and unique heritage, that's just what's
going to happen to a distinctly DeFuniak Springs event.
I urge you to get involved and that goes for city officials,
too. If you don't have time to volunteer, then at least attend
a couple of these wonderful programs. I promise that, if you
do, you'll wonder why you waited all this time to enjoy and
appreciate what was right here at your fingertips all along.

Editor:
A parent meeting was called at the Paxton High School
last Thursday night. I thought our school district was com-
ing to let us know they were going to properly take care of
the bat situation that has plagued this school for almost 20
years. The bat infestation has gotten so bad, and the school
has made the situation worse.
The bat droppings was cleaned out onto our grounds, they
did not properly remove the waste according to profession-
als. Our school is under construction and when they dis-
rupted the ground and every time they move or disrupt any
area where the bat mess was, they cause this mess to go
airborne. In reading under disease information it it called
Histplasmosis, this is an infection which usually presents
as a flu-like symptom, with fever, cough, headaches, and
myalgias. We stood in the meeting, parent after parent ex-
pressing our concerns for our children and teachers who have
these symptoms.
We were told by Carlene Anderson not to try and blame
summer allergies on this. Our children do not have aller-
gies and for those children who do have allergies the par-
ents said their allergies have gotten worse since we have
gotten back to school. The Walton County Health Depatment
cleared us Thursday night as having no more bats, well in
the Daily News on Saturday, you could see one of our little
creatures that was found in Mr. Barefields room.
Carlene Anderson has sent us another letter stating that
we are clear from bats. I'm sorry but I am not satisfied with
this letter. We have children and teachers who are sick. We
were told at the meeting we would have air quality test
done and we asked for soil test to be done. We feel as par-
ents our school should be checked out for the safety of our
children and staff. We are not satisfied with the decision of
Carlene Anderson or her staff. The Walton County School
District has swept it under the table too long. They want
documentation from doctors before they do anything. Until
us parents did research we were taking care of our children
for flus. Last year it took four different anibiotics for my
daughter to get well. Our children should not have to go to
school like this. They are starting to clean these buildings
again. They are not properly cleaning these rooms, and are
causing more dust and problems for our children. We want
our children in a safe environment, and we are not satisfied
with the decision of our school district. We want air quality
test and a soil test if for nothing else for peace of mind for us
and our children. The bats are moving across our campus
and I am afraid that the elementary side is next. And the
smaller children are more vulnerable.
I am not writing this to be a trouble maker, I have two
daughters, who I love very much and I want them to be able
to go to school in a healthy environment. And right now Paxton
is not healthy Jan Davidson

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

PERSONAL COMMENTS


By RON KELLEY


Editor:
According to news reports, there was much discussion at
the recent DeFuniak Springs budget workshop concerning
funds for the Chautauqua Assembly.
Diane Pickett, using her own financial resources, has
worked tirelessly in seeking to restore to DeFuniak Springs
its rich cultural heritage by bringing back the Chautauqua
Assembly with its wonderful programs that are entertain-
ing, educational, and challenging.
Council comments to the effect that 'community support
was lacking' are not entirely true. I have worked along side
numerous volunteers for several years who have sacrificed
many long hours to make the Assembly a success. Is this
not local support? I believe it is.
It seems that the support is lacking from the city rather
than the community. It is obvious to anyone who has eyes to
see that the Assembly is a great benefit to the city. Not only
does it bring in tourist dollars, which helps local businesses,
but it also brings several days of superb activities for our
community.
It is true that many do not take advantage of even the
free programs that are offered for their enjoyment. I per-
sonally find that hard to understand, as I don't want to miss
a thing during the Assembly that's why I volunteer.
Those programs that do cost a small fee are not nearly as
expensive as going to a movie, and you get more for your
money.
The Chautauqua Assembly is good for DeFuniak Springs
and it would help tremendously to have more support from
the city in order for it to continue.

Editor:
It has been recently brought to our attention that the
Walton County School District has stated that a coach at
any Walton County School must be certified to coach, and
be an employee of the school district. This can cause seri-
ous coaching problems for all schools in Walton County, and
in all sports.
Lacking the funding to have more coaches for more sports,
schools have been forced to rely heavily on volunteer
coaches. These coaches'have volunteered to take time out
of their lives to help further our sports skills.
We have been students in Walton County since as early
as kindergarten, and are very upset with this decision. We
have also been avid soccer players for as long as 10 years,
and we have volunteered for the YICA to help the other
kids further their skills. For the last five years, we have
worked in cooperation with the Freeport family YMCA to
get the Freeport High and Middle schools to implement a
soccer program. This team was finally approved at the
end of last year, the team to be started in the fall.
Now, however, that team is not possible. Our coach was
to be Eric Graves. Graves has played professionally and is
a well-qualified coach, having coached us for many years
in the YMCA, and has also worked with us and the YMCA
to get us a team. The problem is that Graves is not an em-
ployee of the Walton County School District. Presently, there
is no other person at Freeport High who is qualified to
coach us, making our team impossible to have this year.
We, along with our other fellow students, have been look-
ing forward to this day for years, only to have it stripped
from our grasp. The decision to remove volunteer coaches
from the courts and fields is a disservice to the student body.

Dear Editor,

I am very proud to say that I live in Defuniak. However,
there are things I see that make me question the patriotism
of some residents.
While sitting at a traffic light recently, I observed a bumper
sticker" on a pickup that read Vietiam Veterans against
John McCain." Being a Vietnam veteran myself, I was a
shocked and amazed that any Vietnam vet could display
such a disrespectful statement for the world to see !!
John McCain epitomizes the true American patriot. As a
POW, he spent five and a half years in the famed Hanoi
Hilton the worst of the worst prison camps. Two of those
years was in solitary confinement and the rest of the time
was spent enduring inhumane torture on a daily basis. The
injuries and scars are still with him today.
Mr. McCain's father and his grandfather were both four-
star admirals in the U. S. Navy. When the Vietnamese found
out about his ancestor's rankings, they offered to let him go
free a short time after his capture. However, he refused to
break the military code, which -tat'.s that prisoners will be
released in the order in which they were captured. How could
you "be against" that ?
Furthermore, he was awarded the Sil',er Star, Bronze Star,
Legion of Merit, Purple Heart, and the Distinguished Fly-
ing Cross, further testifying to the commitment he has for
his country not to mention that he was voted in the top 25
"Most Influential Americans" by Time Magazine in 1977.
Also, he fought back from horrendous injury and a rehabili-
tation regimen that most of us can only imagine to be named
the Navy liaison to the United States Senate in 1977, and
later became a senator himself.
In conclusion, if all these accomplishments do not describe
a true American patriot, I don't know what could. So, who-
ever you are out there displaying that disrespectful not to
mention rude bumper sticker...please remove it for those of
us who were proud to have served, and for the honor of those
like Mr McCain who sacrificed for our freedoms. It is hard
for me to fathom that a U.S. veteran could be so cruel to his
brothers-in-arms. Exactly what is it that you are against?
American heroes? If you or anyone would like to comment,

Department awarded grant


By TAMMY KEARCE
DeFuniak Springs Fire De-
partment is the proud recipi-
entof a 95,500 dollar FEMA
grant, which will be used to
replace existing equipment.
Since SCBA (self-contained
breathing apparatus) gear is
only rated safe for use by
NFPA (National Fire Protec-
tionAssociation) for 15 years,
the fire department was un-
der pressure to purchase
nine more sets of gear in the
next three years.
"Some of our equipment is
on its last cycle and will have
to be destroyed in three
years," said DFS Fire Chief
Brian Coley, "so this grant is
coming at a time to. really
help us." ..


fore the council.
Following the recommen-
dations of the Walton County
Planning Board, the council
voted unanimously to grant
the variance contingent on
the privacy fence being
erected.
Walmart also received a
variance to place 34 storage
containers on their property.
The units will arrive in Sep-
tember and be removed no
later than January 15, 2006.
The containers will store re-
tail merchandise being held
on lay-a-way during the holi-
day season.
The council unanimously
agreed to deem seven unused
computers as surplus and
decided that they be donated

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 25, 2005


Paxton discusses homeowner complaints and requests


BY Kerry Stewart
During the regular Paxton
Town Council meeting held
on Tuesday, August 9, mem-
bers reviewed and approved
the minutes of the previous
meeting. Resident Bill McRae
requested that the town be-
gin posting the draft minutes
on two bulletin boards prior
to the meeting so that resi-
dents could review at the
same time that council re-
viewed.
City attorney Lori Bytell
stated that a draft of the min-
utes were open to the public
under the Sunshine Law. In
addition, if the minutes were
posted, it would reduce paper.
There is no requirement that
the minutes have to be ap-
proved prior to posting. The
minutes will be marked as
draft until council adopts
them. Hand written notes
are also a matter of public
record. The drafts of minutes
are not official and even the
notes taken by City Clerk
Suzan Davis in preparing the
minutes are a matter of pub-
lic record. Also, notes taken
by council members are pub-
lic record if they are part of
the decision making process.
Councilman Tommy Mathis
suggested that Davis set up
-a box in the town hall for
council members to put their
notes in, to be filed so that
they could become part of the
record.
Following a complaint re-
ceived in June, council dis-
cussed the posted speed limit
on Webster Lane or Highway
147, which connects Hwy 331
and 85, the discussion was to
increase the speed limit from
35 miles per hour to 40 miles
per hour. However, during,
the August meeting, Mayor
Wanda Thomas Smith noted
that Webster Lane is a county
highway and the county sets
the speed limit. [D :'vo
Over the past few months,
additional patrols by the
sheriff department have been
requested and received in the
Paxton area and speeding has
been reduced. '
McRae noted that there
were three businesses and a
church within the city limits
on Webster Lane. These busi-
nesses should be taken into
consideration prior to raising
the posting speed limit.


It appears that council
members are receiving com-
plaints about some streets
having excessive speeds, but
are considering raising the
speed limits in other parts of
the city. Melton- agreed with
McRae's observations and
noted that he felt one speed
limit should be enforced for
the entire city limits. (ex-
cluding Hwy. 331, which is set
by the state).
Chairman Bobby Kemp
noted that the speed limit
was 40 mph on Hwy. 331 (in
front of the school) and that
the same speed limit should
apply for Webster Lane. The
decision was tabled, as the
county is responsible for set-
ting the speed limit on
Webster Lane.

The town received a writ-
ten complaint from a resident
that a neighbor is in violation
of the code requiring residen-
tial property to "not resemble
a junkyard." The city has
enforcement procedures to
follow as well as the county.
In order for everyone to be
treated fairly and equally, the
first step for the city council
is to contact all the property
holders and facilitate the best
way to resolve the complaint.
According to the code, the
city must act within a reason-
able time frame to address
the complaint. According to
the complainant, the county
has already discussed the is-
sue with the property holder.
The complainant feels that
his neighbor's property is
"dragging down" the value of
the surrounding properties.
He contacted the city three
years ago and contacted sev-
eral people with the county
code enforcement. Since that
time, he believes that he has
lost the opportunity to sell his
home on three separate occa-
Ssions.
Bytell noted that the first
step for the city should be to
give written notice to the
property holder that he is
"perceived" to be in violation
of the code. People must be
afforded due process with an
opportunity to defend them-
selves against a complaint.
In addition, the person should
be allowed at least twenty?
days to respond to the com-
plaint, she said. Once this has


been done, the city will need
to advertise for a public hear-
ing to address the problem.
During the public hearing,
the city council will serve as
a "quasi-judicial" board to lis-
ten to all parties involved and
determine if there is a code
violation. Both sides will be
given the opportunity to
present testimony. The coun-
cil must have four members
voting to reach a resolution.
Within ten days of the meet-
ing, the council must send a
certified written notice of the
decision to the affected par-
ties. This written notice will
be a binding order.
A lengthy discussion en-
sued as to whether or not
council members had a con-
flict of interest. A conflict of
interest would arise if the
council member had a finan-
cial gain from a decision or if
an immediate family member
would gain from the decision.
The code stated that four
council members must be in
agreement with any decision.
Bytell noted that the mayor
had the administrative au-
thority to comply with the
code with no conflict of inter-
est. The council must act on
the complaint or face having
the matter turned over to the
circuit court.
Another option presented
by Bytell would be if council
appointed an independent
board to hear the complaint
and make a recommendation
to the council. At that point,
the council would be review-
ing a finding of fact already
established by the indepen-
dent board, but, the council
must develop a system for
citizens to be heard by a fair
and impartial party.
Mathis and Melton both
noted that they believed it
was the responsibility of the
council to hear the com-
plaints from, the citizens.
They felt that was part of why
they were elected.
- --Bytell notified them that
they were not relinquishing
their authority or duty but
instead were giving people an
opportunity to have access to
a fair and unbiased party.


Since the people serving on
the board would be the citi-
zens, it would provide an op-
portunity for the public to
show they care and become
involved in the workings of
the government.
Another option presented
was to change the language
of the code to reflect a vote of
a simple majority. With the
composition of the Paxton
council, a simple majority
would be three council mem-
bers' votes. In order to change
the language of the code,
council would have to adver-
tise the change. Melton made
a motion, which was ap-
proved, to draft an ordinance
to change the language to a
simple majority vote. Bytell
stated that she could have the
ordinance drafted by August
16 and advertise the change
for seven to ten days prior to
the next council meeting.
Smith notified council
members that in a letter
dated July 18, Paxtonre-
ceived notification of eligibil-
ity and, funding priority from
the USDA Rural Develop-
ment for water and waste
funding in the amount of
$426,000. The letter stated.
that Paxton's application was
eligible for funding by the
Rural Utilities Service (RUS).
After a thorough review of the
town's financial documents,
the USDA was agreeable to.
the full application being
completed to request RUS
assistance in the loan amount
of $107,000 and a grant of
$319,000. The eligibility de-
termination is subject to RUS
'approval of the preliminary'
engineering report (PER) and
the agreement for engineer-
ing services submitted for the
project.
Council voted to amend
the community.development
block grant budget to allow
for revenues and expendi-
tures to the grant. The expen-
ditures will be reimbursed
under the-grant and will aha-
.sically be a wash reflected on
the budget.
According to Smith, the city
received a plaque of recogni-
tion from the Emergency Re-


sponse Division for their
response during the aftermath
of Hurricane Dennis.
Council heard from a resi-
dent askingfor a one-time for-
giveness and reduce her exces-
sive water bill from $107.27 to
the average bill of $33.90.
Frankie Burlison noted that
the old meter to the residence
had never been removed but
should not be running through
the meter to the residence un-
less there was a leak on the
resident's side of the meter. If
a leak is detected on the
resident's side of the meter, it
is the responsibility of the resi-
dent to repair. If a water leak
is determined on the town's
side of the meter, it will not
run through the meter and no
charges would be accrued by
the resident.
Chairman Bobby Kemp re-
quested that Burlison go to the
residence and make sure that


County Emergency Response.
During the July meeting,
Walton County Fire Manager
Eddie Rivers addressed coun-
cil explaining that the Walton
County commissioners had
adopted a six-year plan for the
county that could incorporate
the PVFD, as well as other in-
dependent fire districts, under
one umbrella. The ultimate
goal would be for all fire dis-
tricts, north of the bay, to be
managed by the county. The
plan encompasses a strong
combination of both career
and volunteer fire and rescue
systems and personnel.
According to Rivers, the big-
gest benefits of working un-
der this concept would be that
it is more cost effective to run
one department than several,
allowing for cheaper insur-
ance rates and standardized
services within the county.
Mathis commented that


there was no leaks found and there were numerous re-

hicle was forced over the

wall. Sterling was ejected,
and fell to his death on the
331 fishing bridge just below
the wall.

ton County.Jail.

tored. It includes information
on school FCAT results by,
student subgroup, student
readiness for the next educa-
tional level, teacher qualifi-
cations, school improvement
priorities and levels of suc-
cess and status on making
adequate yearly progress as
required by the NCLB Act.
The schools in Walton.
County are doing an excel-
lent job, as evidenced by their
performance ratings issued
through the Florida A+ Sys-
tem of School Improvement
and Accountability. The addi-
tional information contained
within the NCLB SPAR pro-
vides school administrators
and staff with the tools they
need to better address the
specific needs of their school
population and make their
school improvement initia-
tives more meaningful. Be-
cause it reports assessment
results across a wide range
of student demographic sub-
groups, the NLB SPAR as-
sists schools in truly making


sure that no child is left be-
hind.
NCLB SPAR Reports are
now available at each school
site. If you would like a copy
of any of these reports, re-
quest them from the indi-
vidual schools or from the

if land east of town whose
primary function is to pro-
ide sandy soil for waste wa-
ter spray fields. However, Re-
gional has also said they will
;ake a portion of this land
nd use it to build 1,500 af-
brdable housing units.
Marse says the property
ised will have to be declared
surplus to Regional's needs
nd transferred to a housing
authority which would, in
;urn, provide the housing.
Marse says the units would
,e sold, not rented, and that
;he sales contract would pro-
ride that if the unit was sold
by the owner/occupant
within five years, any profit
generated would be returned
;o the housing authority.
Brannon and Paris also
commented on another "af-
ordable housing" project un-
lerway at St .Job's
WaterSound development. In
;his case, according to
3rannon, the housing units
ire to be constructed before
;he start of WaterSound as a
negotiated part of the project
development process. It is
understood that St. Joe will
manage the housing project,
reserving the units for its
wn employees. Brannon be-
ieves this approach will be a
future trend for major devel-
opments.
Paris feels that company
management will exclude
abuses that sometimes can
develop in affordable housing
projects.
Unfortunately, the afford-
able housing story for Free-
port does not end here. Real
estate prices are now so high
;hat young professionals, in-
cluding doctors and lawyers
ust starting their practices,
company branch managers
and supervisors, teachers
and others, find home prices
in the area out
of their reach.
The affordable housing is-
sue, whether for young pro-
fessionals or resort employ-
ees, may yet determine what
end the Freeport property
boom reaches.

WHILE DBPA MEMBERS WERE POLICING THE SIDE-
WALKS for unruly weeds, businessman. Clyde Rhodes of
Rhodes Jewelers in DeFuniak Springs was busy washing
the outside of the store on 9th Street after mowing the grass
next to the building.
DBPA President Sara Comander said. "Mr Rhodes sets a
good example of a business owner demonstrating persorial
responsibility for, not just what's inside of his store, but the
property and grounds, too. He practises what we preach."


WHEN WEEDS THREATENED to take over the streets, Sara Comander and Gillis
'Douglass of the DeFuniak Business and Professional Association took matters into their
own hands and spent a Saturday morning wiping out the pesky sprouts.
Both said the city has its plate full with other projects and Assistant City Manager Larry
Laird has already promised to have the downtown sidewalks pressure-washed soon. "We
don't mind," said Douglass, "this is a worthwhile project that will improve the look of
downtown." Comander agreed, saying, "After all, it's my town, too."

generosity on behalf of the
Walton-DeFuniak Library
and the Friends of the Li-
brary. She received a beauti-
ful wall clock with the Wal-

tured on the face.
Liz Sinclair, the new owner
of The Book Store, was hon-
ored for her continuation of
the precedent begun by
Louwerens and her wonder-
ful help with latest projects.
Dan Owens, director of Li-
brary Services for Walton
County, accepted plaque to

Locals preparing

for National Peanut

Festival Pageant


What's the most effective
way to prepare for competing
in the National Peanut Fes-
tival Pageant? By going to
the root or roots of the situa-
tion and visiting a local pea-
nut farm.
Recently, Miss DeFuniak
Springs Kayla Ealum, Miss
Walton County Ashley
Nance, Little Miss Walton
County Melodiann Nikole
Dier, Junior Miss Walton
County Devero Bogart and
family members spent the
afternoon at Richardson
Farms. They were given an
informative lesson the pea-
nut and the modern day
methods of cultivating this
cash crop by Donnie


Richardson, better known for
his membership on the Wal-
ton District School Board.
Richardson also transported
them to his peanut fields to
get a close up view of peanut
plants and the technology
used to harvest them.
It is quickly becoming a
tradition for the county's
beautiful representatives at
the National Peanut Festival
Pageants to schedule a visit
with Richardson, who stays
current with agricultural
laws and technology. His be-
lief that the farming indus-
try depends on America's
youth becoming educated
and committed to its future,
is a major actor in his will-


ingness to interrupt his hec-
tic schedule to welcome the
young women to his farm.
All of the youth ambassa-
dors were amazed to hear the
price tags attached to several
farming equipment pieces
and the dedication and long
hours it requires to operate
a 21st century farm.
The lesson culminated
with the Richardson family
inviting the beauty queens
and their entourage to make
a return visit during peanut
harvest in October and pre-
senting the young women
with delicious watermelons,
another crop produced at
Richardson Farms.


DONNIE RICHARDSON shares facts about peanut plants with several of the youth
ambassadors of Walton County.

Rachael Jones
meets "Christine"
From Broadway's
The Phantom of the Opera


They say that New, York
City is a place where dreams
come true. For sixteen- year-
old Rachael Jones. daughter
of Wayne and Connie Jones,
no statement could be more
accurate. On July 14, after a
performance of the acclaimed
musical The Phantom of the
Opera, Rachael was fortu-
nate enough to meet her fa-
vorite actress and lead from
the show, Sandra Joseph,
who plays "Christine Daae."
Not only did Rachael get to
meet Ms. Joseph, but was
personally invited backstage
of the famous Majestic The-
atre and asked to sing
with the Broadway star. "I
thought I may get lucky and
get Sandra to sign a program
and take a picture," Rachael
says, "Never did I' imagine
this! I was so nervous, I could
barely sing!"
Ms. Joseph has been in the
prestigious role in Phantom
since 1998, making her one
of the most acclaimed and
longest running actresses in
the show and the role. After
her incredible visit, and sa-
voring every moment on the
stage at the Majestic as well
as singing with the star,
Rachael and Ms. Joseph left
together and were greeted by


fans of the popular show, who
were demanding autographs.
With a smile, Ms. Joseph in-
troduced Rachael as her "un-
derstudy."
A regular on-stage at the
Chautauqua Theatre,
Rachael's experience only
made. her love the stage
more, "Ms. Joseph gave me
incredible advice on perform-
ing and for the future. I can't
thank her enough for the ex-
perience she gave me!,Meet-
ing her, and especially being
on stage at the Majestic, it
was a dream come true."

Using your

influence in the world

By Dr. Robert M. Jaye

In 2 Chronicles 27:2 it is said of King Jotham that "he did
that which was right in the sight of the Lord." That would
be good influence. But notice the later words of the text:
"howbeit he entered not into the temple of the Lord." That
was bad. While he was good, he did not worship to the Lord.
The verse ends, "And the people did yet corruptly." That is
the cost of bad influence.
You can make your influence count for good when you live
for the Lord. Each of us influences someone. Let the shadow
of your life fall with good influence on those around you,
wherever you are.
Your influence may be unconscious. You may not be aware
that others are watching. Many things are caught, not
taught. The father who drives over the speed limit-having
his child looking for the traffic police, should not be surprised
that the child later has a disregard for the law. King Ahaz

was King Jotham's son, and "he did not that which was right
in the sight of the Lord." (2 Chronicles 28:1)
Influence may be actively bad. Don't be indifferent. What-
ever you do is being watched by others, If you do bad, will
you willingly lead others astray? Of course you will.
Influence may be actively good. We all know ways in which
someone has influenced others for good. Loving sacrificially
is a way to witness for the Lord.
Influence has a ripple effect. Consider the influence of
Jotham because he did not worship God. Then think of Jesus
who, with only a few followers, has influenced the whole
world. Let us live for Christ, and influence others in the
world.

Freeport leads series 2-0.
2004: Freeport 22 South Walton 16 OT~
2003: Freeport 58 South Walton 0

Freeport has won both games in the series but gpt,a serious scare
last season as South Walton jumped out to a 10-0 lead. Ereeport rallied
to tie the game as Dustin Scott caught a 5-yard touchdown pass from
Lloyd Anderson late in the game and Ches Carter added the two-point
conversion to tie the game at 16-16. Lloyd Anderson's lr-yard
quarterback sneak in overtime won the game for the Bulldogs.
This year's game should be a defensive battle in Freeport as both
teams have similar strengths and weaknesses. Last year's game was as
close a contest as any fan could ask for and 2005's battle ,should not
disappoint.

Area athletes on


college rosters


By PATRICK CASEY
North Florida has always
been well represented on the
college gridiron, and.that will
continue in 2005 as many
area athletes are preparing
for the start of the regular
season in September.
Michael Smith, a freshman
who played at Tallahassee
Rickards, may be redshirted
this season by the Arkansas
Razorbacks. The 5'7", 170- Ib.
tailback was rated by
Rivals.com as the #13 all-
purpose back in the nation.
SEllis Gaulden, a 6'2", 188
lb. redshirt freshman, will be
competing for playing time at
wide receiver for the Univer-
sity of Connecticut this sea-
son. Gaulden waste re-
ceiver who caught the "Hail
Mary" against Milton in the
2003 state playoffs that
eliminated the Panthers.
Eli Nichols is a 6'4", 260 lb.
junior and a Wakulla product
who is a starting defensive
end for the Duke Bluedevils.
Nichols started at 11 games
in 2004 and had three sacks
and one interception. Nichols
is one of seven returning de-
fensive starters and an ACC
Academic Honor Roll selec-
tion.
Joe Anoai, a 6'3", 270 lb. de-
fensive tackle who played for
Pensacola Escambia and
Catholic, started: all 12


games for Georgia Tech last
season. He recorded 3.5.
sacks in 2004 and has played
in every game for the
Yellowjackets the last two
seasons.
Mark Youngblood, a 5'9",
185 b. linebacker out ofTal-
lahassee Lincoln is a redshirt
freshman in 2005 after join-
ing Georgia Tech as a walk-
on in 2004. He did not see
action last season and may be
a long shot to do so this year
as well.


By Patrick Casey
Holmes County scored the
final 28 points of the game as
they knocked off theFreeport
Bulldogs 28-7 in the 2005
Kickoff Classic for both
schools.
Freeport got off to a good
start as James Humphrey
blocked a B1ledevils punt in
the first period giving the
Bulldogs. the ball at the
Holmes County 30-yard line.
LloydAnderson helped the
squad drive in for their only
score of the night as he ran
in from 9 yards out to give
Freeport a 7-0 lead midway
thru the first quarter.
Freeport muffed the punt
snap on their next possession
to give Bonifay excellentfield
position at the Bulldogs 27-
yard line. Elec Wells ran in
from 19 yards out withl:06
left in the first quarter to tie
the game at 7-7.
SJohnathan Rabbe helped
the Bulldogs stop a Holmes
County drive in the
secondquarter when he fell
on a fumble at the Bulldogs
27-yard line. The Freeport
defensedid a good job slowing
down the Bluedevils running
attack in the first half as both
teamsdefenses dominated.
Holmes County was able to
mount a scoring drive with
Five minutes left in thefirst
half as Zach Nalls hit Robert'
Brown with a 28-yard touch-
down pass for a 14-7halftime
lead.
The third quarter was
scoreless as each team's de-
fense continued to stymie the


offenses for the two schools.
Turnovers and penalties, as
often occur in the frst game
of the year, were abundant on
both sides of the football.
Nalls iced the game with
just over nine minutes left in
the contest as heconnected oni

Fans and players

say it'sjust too hot!


_By CHUCK HINSON
Being on the field this past
Thursday and Friday nights
1 watching two of the county
teams, sweat poured from
Smy head, my chest, down my
legs and every other possible
part of my body that could
Produce water. It was the
kick-off of football season,
but the heat reminded me of
Being on the baseball field in
the middle of the day in July.
Despite the waterbreaks
taken by each team every 10
or 15 minutes, the players
still poured sweat and notice-
able signs of fatigue had al-
ready begun to set in in the
First half of the game. It was
a true sweat and blood week
of high school football.
In the past few years, sev-
eral high school and college
teams have had players have
heat strokes and some have
even had players that have
died from heat or heat-re-
lated symptoms. They hit
the field in full pads in mid-
August, and even as far as up
north, it is still extremely too
hot to be in full practice or'
playing pads.
But now the professional
teams are "feeling the heat."
This past Sunday morning.
when 23-year-old defensive
lineman Thomas Herrion
collapsed by his locker. De-
spite a cool Denver evening,
toxicologists are blaming.the
heat for the players death.-
If it is proven to be deith
due.to the heat, it will be the
second death in a little more
than four years that has been
contributed to the heat and
sun. Minnesota Vikings Of-
fensive lineman, Korey
Stringer, died of a heat-
stroke following a practice in
the 90-degree weather.
Reports from the coroner
will not be available for two
to three weeks on Herrion.
So what does this mean to
college and high school foot-
ball teams, players and
coaches?
If it is miserably hot in the
stands for the fans, imagine
the heat down in the hole, or
field, for the players. Tem-
peratures -are sometimes
four to five degrees hotter on
the field and ihder the
lights, than in the stands or
even on the sidelines.
Many states are ~iow con-
sidering a much later start

Elections commission


eyes local politicians


By DOTTY NIST
SUnofficial reports indicate
that a Walton County com-
missioner and a candidate in
the 2004 Walton County
Commission race are under
investigation by the Florida
Elections Commission.
The commissioner is Scott
Brannon, who represents
District 1 on the Walton
County Board of County'
Commissioners i BCC Cam-
paign finance-related
charges against Lee Perry,
who ran unsuccessfully for
the District 5 BCC seat in
2004, are also reportedly un-
der investigation.
Charged with enforcing
state campaign finance laws,
the elections commission met
in Tallahassee last week.
This was a closed session
with no attendance by the
general public or media al-
lowed. An official report on
decisions at that meeting will
not be available until the end
of the month.
However, attendees say
that on Aug. 18 the commis-
sion found probable cause to
investigate charges against
Brannon and Perry. A prob-
able cause decision does not
constitute a finding of any
culpability but it is q start-
ing point for investigations to
rule on the existence of vio-
lations.

Former Grayton Beach
businessman Guy Davidson.
who had filed the charges,,
attended the Aug. 18 hear-
ing.
Davidson was employed by.
Brannon's opponent in the
2004 election, former Walton
County Commissiong, Lane
Rees. Davidson, w~ho now
lives in Texas, produced cam-
paign advertising for Rees.
In 2004, Da\idson had filed
a complaint against an elec-
tioneering communications
organization known as "Wal-
ton Citizens for Responsible
Government," which had run
negative advertising attack-
ing Rees.
The complaint was, valu-
ated with regard to, five
Florida statutes, including
failure of a political coqmit-
tee to file a statement 9f-or-
ganization, failure to, report
an independent expenditure
of $100 or more, failure to
state the required disclaimer,
failure to state that no, can-
didate approved the ad. and
failure to report information
required by Chapter 106,
Florida Statutes.
The charges against Wal-
ton Citizens for Responsible
Government were dismissed
by the elections commission.
However, Davidson said
the elections commission
found probable cause to pro-
ceed in investigating two


counts of campaign finance-
related charges against
Brannon and six counts
against Perry.
He added that the elections
commission put off a prob-
able cause decision on an-
other organization that had
also run attack ads on Rees
prior to the 2004 election, the
Walton Association of Vters.
That matter will likely be
brought up when the elec-
tions commission meets
again in mid-November.
Scott Brannon, who also
attended the Nov. 18 Florida
Elections Commission hear-
ing, said the two counts be-,
ing investigated against him
involve a highly technical
interpretation of accounting
used for two of my campaign
reports."
The county commissioner
denies any wrong-doing in
the matter.
"I am confident that a full
and fair hearing on the issue
will show that the (elections)
commission staff incorrectly
applied the law," Brannon
said in an Aug. 18 statement.
In a summary of the
charges provided by
Brannon, both counts under
investigation are shown to
involve alleged incorrect oV
false certification by the can-
didate that he had included
"the full name and address
of entities to which he made
expenditures" during the
campaign and alleging that
he failed to list campaign-re-
lated expenditures to area
television stations for ads or
air time and incorrectly or
falsely certified that his ex-
penditure reports were com-
plete.
"All contributions and ex-
penses in my campaign were
faithfully reported," Brannon
states.
He explains that the only
issue under investigation is
the way his media expenses
were listed.
"Under the interpretation
of the (elections) commission
staff, I should have reported
these expenses before my
campaign received a bill in-
forming of the amounts to be
reported," he commented.
Brannon also said the elec-
tions commission interpreta-
tion found fault with his writ-
ing one check to his media
agent for an invoice combin-
Sing charges from two televi-
sion stations.
"They said I should have
broken it apart," he said.
The elections commission
is empowered to fine up to
$1,000 for each count for
which a person charged is
found to be guilty.
Brannon points out that
the expense of contesting the
allegations far exceeds what
the cost would be to settle by


paying the fines. However. he
says he feels compelled to
fight the charges to force "a
clarification of the statutes."
During the 2004 campaign,
there were attempts to link
Brannon with the election-
eering communications orga-
nizations that attacked his
opponent Rees through nega-
tive ads. Federallaw forbids
organizations of this type to
coordinate with political par-
ties.
Brannon has continuously
stated that he has had no in-
volvement with the organiza-
tions that attacked his oppo-
nent. He still maintains that
he has had no association
with these groups and points
out that there has been no
proof of any such link.

Brannon's opponent. Lane
Rees remarks that, if the
elections commission has
found probable cause to in-
vestigate Brannon's cam-
paign finance record, that
There must be a valid reason
to do so.
"That's not just a typo,"
Rees commented.
Lee Perry provided the fol-
lowing written statement,
dated Aug. 18, regarding the
elections commission prob-
able cause decision:
"The Florida Elections
Commission's finding of
probable cause today is com-
pletely unsupported by the
law and the facts uncovered
by the Commission's staff.
The laws applicable to re-
porting campaign expenses
are anything but clear.:The
Commission has determined
that probable cause exists to
support six counts alleging a
failure to properly report.ad-
vertising expenditures. The\
Commission's decision rests
on a strained interpretation
of the law.",
"My understanding of the
law, as well as my attorney's,
indicates that a candidate
must report an expenditure
in the amount it was made
and when it was made. This
is what I did. When my cam-
paign received a bill from our
advertising agency, the bill
was paid and reported on the
appropriate form.
"Under the Commission's
interpretation of the law, a
candidate would be respon-
sible for knowing the amount
and date of each individual
advertising expense incurred
on his behalf by an advertis-
ing agency. This interpreta-
tion is both impractical and
contrary to the election laws.
This burden imposed by the
Commission today virtually
assures that any candidate
employing an advertising
agency will unknowingly vio-
late their interpretation of
the law."


DEP closes office in south Walton


The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
closed their temporary field
office at the South Walton
CourthouseAnnex on Friday,
August 19. This office was
established immediately af-
ter Hurricane Dennis to pro-
vide better access for resi-
dents needing DEP permits
for beach restoration and
other hurricane damage af-
ter the storm.
Michael Barnett, DEP's


chief of beaches and coastal
systems, noted the
cooperative spirit between
DEP and Walton County fol-
lowing the devastating im-
pacts to the beaches of south
Walton wrought by Hurri-
cane Dennis. He stated, "We
appreciate the work of every-
one involved in this coopera-
tive effort. Repair, rebuilding
and restoration is a lengthy
process, and DEP staff will
continue to assist area resi-


dents in the upcoming
weeks."
The DEP Bureau of
Beaches and Coastal Sys-
tems will continue to provide
staff presence in the field

AFTER MONTHS OF WAITING for traffic lights at two busy intersections on i'S. 98
that are frequent locations for serious, even fatal accidents, it looks like te signal posts
will.soon be going up. The project is set to begin next week at CR-395 and CR-283. Due to
state budget constraints, the county will pay for the work. initially, but will be reimbursed
by the state later:



U.S. 98 traffic signals in sight


By KEN LITTLE
li'alton County Public
Information Officer
Information received from
traffic signal contractors in-
dicate the much-needed sig-
nals on U.S. 98 at county
roads 395 and 283 should
soon be installed.
Beginning the week of Au-
gust 29. Griffin Signals plans
to be on site installing the
drill shafts and power com-
ponents. This phase of the
project involves boring the
foundations for the mast
arms arid pouring the con-
crete. After pouring, the
foundations must cure-for a
period of about 28 days to al-
low the concrete to reach op-


timum strength to hold the
masts' components.
The mast arms are sched-
uled for delivery on Septem-
ber 19, and the installations
should begin to take shape to
residents of the area. The,
inasts are 22 feet tall, arid set
in foundations of 25 cubic
yards of concrete to a depth
of 27 feet. The acute angle of
the U.S. 9S/CR-395 intersec-
tion posed an engineering
challenge to properly span
this intersection with lights
that could be seen in all di-
rections.

Once construction is com-
pleted, the lights will run.
flashing caution for 14 days.


This is required by the state's
Department of Transporta-
tion to accustom drivers, both
residents and those passing
through less frequently, with
the changed traffic pattern.

Because of the urgent need
for- these signals, Walton
County entered into a joint
participation agreement
with the Florida Department
ofTransportation to erect the
signals now at county ex-
pense, to be reimbursed by
the state when funding is al-
located. In the absence of
unexpected delays, the com-
plete signal installation is
expected to be operational by
mid-October.


Anders to represent


SWalton, on governor's board


JIM ANDERS of Walton
County will serve on a board
selected by Gov. Jeb Bush to
develop strategies to improve
transportation on US. 98 in
the Panhandle, including
evacuation routes and possi-
bly toll bridges and public/
private partnerships.



By DOTTY NIST
"I'm excited about it," Wal-
ton County resident Jim
Anders said of his recent ap-
pointment to the Northwest
Florida Transportation Cor-
ridor Authority.
Anders, a county resident
and property owner for a de-
cade, said he is eager to work
to find transportation solu-
tions for U.S. 98, which he
calls "a nightmare all along
the coast."
Anders is Gov. Jeb Bush's
choice to represent Walton
County on the newly created
eight-member board, which
includes a delegate from each
Florida Panhandle county
from Escambia east to
Wakulla.
Owner of Anders Real Es-


tate and Timber Company,
Anders was developer for the
26-lot Camp Creek Cove sub-
division in southeastern Wal-
ton County. He is former
chair of the Walton County
Design Review Board, the
county entity charged with
review of new projects on the
U.S. 98 Scenic Corridor. He is
active with the Republic
Party and has served as
chairman of the Walton
County Republican: Execu-
tive Committee.
Anders said he is looking
forward to the first meeting
of the corridor authority,
which is set for Sept. 2 in Fort
Walton Beach, and to "field
trips" to various portions of
U.S. 98 that are planned for
the governor-appointed
board.
State Representative Ray
Sansom sponsored legisla-
tion that created the board
during this year's legislative
session. Sansom also ex-
pressed high hopes for the
new board when he met with
the Okaloosa-Walton Trans-
portation Planning Organi-
zation (TPO) on Aug. 18.
Elaine Tucker, chair of the
two-county transportation
planning body, noted that the
TPO has also prioritized U.S.
98.
Sansom was optimistic
that the new board would
succeed in its task partly be-
cause it is a "regional ap-
proach" to improving the
roadway that he reports the
Federal Highway Adminis-
tration has judged "the most
difficult regional highway in


the country."
The new entity will have
$5.4 million in start-up costs,
he added, and will be ex-
pected to product a regional
plan for U.S. 98 within 24
months. Evacuation routes
are to play a big role.
New toll bridges will pos-
sibly be part of that plan, but
Sansom said no existing
bridges will become toll
bridges. Public / private part-
nerships will be among the
options on the table to create
roadways with the corridor
authority, he said.
"For the first time we can
see a light at the end of a long
tunnel," Sansom commented.
He was optimistic that
Panhandle residents would
be seeing U.S. 98 improve-
ments within three years as
a result of the new board.
Sansom was questioned as
to whether the corridor
authority's purview would be
restricted to U.S. 98. His re-
sponse was that the new
board would not be restricted
to the highway but could get
involved with improvements
in other areas that would
help circulation on the corri-
dor, as with alternate routes
that could reduce U.S. 98 con-
gestion.
"There may be a lot of
movement off of (U.S.) 98,"
Sansom said,
Walton County Commis-
sioners Ro Cuchens and
Cindy Meadows, who serve
on the TPO, both said the
believed the new corridor

Now is the time of the year
when scholarships are
awarded to students who
have prove themselves to be
extraordinary achievers,
leaders in the community,

Lion sponsors and other
adults to create the first
Sandestin Leo Club.
The first year of the club
Griffin, was elected treasurer
of the club, and helped in
many fundraising events
such as the sale of strawber-
ries and the sale of cards. Her
younger brother, Joe, .was
one of whom the Sandestin
Lions Club assisted in receiv-
ing a guide dog. The follow-
ing year, Griffin, was elected
the Leo Club president.
Over the last year Griffin
helped recruit 24 new Leo
club members. She organized
many fundraisers such as the
donation of over 1,000 cloth-
ing items to hurricane vic-
tims, also, the sale of another
set of cards displaying Joe's

WATER CONSERVATION TIPS


Time your shower to keep it under 5 minutes.
You'll save up to 100 gallons a month.


When doing laundry, match the water level to
the size of the load.


Teach your children to turn the faucet off tightly
after each use.


Make sure you know where your master water
shut-off valve is located. This could save gallons
of water and damage to your home if a pipe were
to burst.


Use a hose nozzle and turn off the water while
you wash your car and save more than 100 gal-
lons.


Encourage your friends and nieghbors to be part
of a water-conscious community.


Choose new water-saving appliances, like wash-
ing machines that save up to 20 gallons per load.


Encourage your school system and local gov-
ernment to help develop and promote a water
conservation ethic among children and adults.

EVENTS

sArt Clips f AROUND THE SOUTH


Trying to beat the
heat during the dog
days of summer is a
task that the entire
nation is having to
deal with right now.
But with Florida
being the play-
ground ofthenation,
how are we coping
with tourism and
the drop-off in visi-
tors.

Within just a few more
days, summer traveling time
and summer tourism will
come to a slow halt. The
roads will once again become
easier to travel, shorter lines
at restaurants and no wait-
ing at the checkout line. It is
the beginning of the "dead
season" here in Florida, but
for many that has been the
problem all year long.
SSome blame it on the cost of
gas, others on the numerous
storms that have moved
through the area, ~t ers say
that Florida is just too swel-
tering during the summer
months to even cross the
state line. Whatever the case
may be, the state of Florida
has seen a slow down, state-
wide, since last summer.
A few of my friends and
their families said they did
not want to go,.but their kids
begged, .cried and pleaded to
take them to Walt Disney
World. After weeks and
months of crying and pitch-
ing fits, the parents gave in,
loaded the car and headed for
Orlando.
Once they arrived, they
noticed the lines were not as
bad as they were warned
they would be during the
summer peak tourism
months. A usual stand-in-
line time for a two minute
ride was 50-75 minutes, on
July 18, they said it was 15-
20-minute wait-time.
'My buddy said that was
true for all the attractions at
the park and at Sea World
and EPCOT. Those who had
braved the heat, looked as if
they had been set on fire and
then put out with a bottle ,of
whiskey.
They were just exhausted
and you never saw a tourist
without a hat on or a bottle of
water with sunscreen drip-


ping from their forehead.
The heat was on and the gas
prices just added fuel to the
fire.
Other cities and tourist
destinations around the
state have reported that ho-
tel bookings, condo rentals,
reservations, ticket sales
and other points of interest
directed at tourists, took a
slight dip this past summer.,
.Once again many have
blamed the early arrival of
hurricanes to the state, While
others point the finger at the
government and the ever-in-
creasing rise in gas and oil
prices.
Many say that there visit-
ing homeowners and those
with second homes and vaca-
tion homes throughout the
state, have not seen much in
the means of decreased vis-
its. But the same has not
been true for those who have
rental properties and have
seen a sharp decrease in
rentals this past year, due to
one reason or another.
With homeowners, the
only thing they have to worry
with is the gas prices to get
:down here. If a hurricane
comes, they don't have to try
to reschedule their vacation,
they just change the day they
decide on leaving to head
down to the Sunshine State.
.Tourist attractions around
the state have reported that
with the combination of so
many 'situations" that have
been plaguing the state, they
are hopeful that the fall and
winter months will be more
positive.
Activities have been
planned around the state
which do not center around
the beaches and water, but'
around culture and art.
Many of the state's hot spots
are reporting increases in
fall and winter visitors and
participation, than ever be-
fore.
Locally,, the SWTDC and
other organizations have
been working diligently to
provide fall activities for
tourists in hopes of putting
heads in guest beds. The
concept isworking and more
and more people, not just the
snowbirds, are making this
area and the entire state of
Florida their fall and winter
destination.
It is the hopes arid prayers
that the gas prices and
mother nature will also take
a vacation and go visit an-
other country for a few
months.
