3y RON KELLEY

Once upon a time, there was a free-
;hinking political activist named Russ
Carter who, much like the fabled Don
uixote, spent a lot of his time tilting at
vindmills. In Carter's case, most of those
vindmills were erected by dear old Uncle
Dam. "
It's not that Carter doesn't love his
country Anyone who spends much time
;alkingwith Russ Carter quickly realizes
;hat he's a fierce patriot and a great be-
iever in the American Dream.
The problem is, Russ Carter does not
suffer fools gladly and he doesn't mind
sellingg you that he's met plenty of them,
nostly mid-level government bureau-
-rats with too much power and too little
;ense.
"You give a man a little power, a little
authority over something, and before you
mow it, instead of formulating plans to
ive by, he's come up with a set of rules
prohibitingg everything you can think of,"
ie said.
Carter, born in Philadelphia, worked
nost of his life as an engineering contrac-
;or, building roads and bridges and sewer
systems in Washington, D.C. and\Mary-
and. In 1950, he moved to Miami with
uis wife, Theo, and their three children.
: His disenchantment with government
)egan in 1972 after he bought a 120-acre
pilot of land he called Rocky Lakes Farm,
here he hoped to create his retirement
ibme.
:'Carter made a road through his prop-
irty. The government told him he could
lot maintain it. Carter then planned to
)iiild a home on the property and, again,
hncle Sam said, "No!" Carter then pro-
$osed digging lakes on the land. Again,
;he proposal, was denied. Carter wanted
;( plant a mango orchard on the prop-
frty and he was again told he could not.
So, in true Don Quixote style, he did it
anyway.
Carter built a home, dug several lakes
md planted his orchard. He said the gov-
)rnment told him that he would destroy
:he balance of nature and the productiv-
ty of the land.
He disagreed, strongly.
"Every acre of my land is balanced and
i thousand times more productive than
t was before, he said.
Carter stocked the lakes with bream,
rout, crawfish and shrimp. even a type
f fish that eats the algae that forms on
he bottom of lake beds.
He put culverts upnde the roads to
eep the water flowing. However. he said
here were parts of the Everglades, such
is miles of saw grass, that produce noth-
ng and do not support wildlife.
"This land produces virtually nothing.
.t was productive before they put all the
drainage in years ago, but that and the
ire took all of the peat moss off. It's not
ush. Nothing can survive on this," he
laid.
Carter said the mango trees, the
naples, cypress and pecan trees he
wantedd gave birds a place to build their
lests instead of building them in the
;awgrass, to be flooded and destroyed
vhen the waters rise.
Carter said he was involved in a law-
;uit with the state over t he issues. "I lost
he battle, the state won the lawsuit, but
;hey are using my principles in many
treas in the Everglades and they are
working which proves I was right all
along."
Russ Carter is a great belie.er in cre-
iting life where there was none before.
"God is a creating, producing, positive
force, representing the eternal beginning.
rhe devil is a consuming, destroying,


negative force represent-
ing the finite end," he -
said.
Carter said he eventu- ,
ally sold the land to the
state, but because they
underpaid him, he now '
has a million-dollar tax ''
credit. For Carter, at the
age of 87, this means he'll
likely never pay taxes
again.
This suits him fine,
since he thinks income
tax is unfair and uncon-
stitutional.
He views taxes as a
penalty. "If you drive
above the speed limit and
get a ticket, what hap-
pens? They charge you
money as a punishment.
Taxes are like that. Taxes
are a punishment for
working and producing,
adding to the quality of
life."
Carter feels so strongly
about taxes that in the
early 90s, he started an
organization in Walton
County called Citizens
for Constitutional Prop-
erty Rights. The organiza-
tion was dedicated to the
idea of getting rid of in-
come tax. RUSS C
Carter believes that in- crossed
come tax is unconstitu- rights.
tionally imposed upon the "n
people by the Internal
Revenue Service. "It vio-
lates our individual rights and causes
people to be deceitful and dishonest be-
'cause even with both parents working,
family needs cannot be,met due to IRS
demands," he said.
The CCPR, of which Carter is presi-
dent, believes the solution is to abolish
the IRS and the income tax program and
turn to a national sales tax system. In-
stead of a 20 percent rate on certain goods
and services, as recently proposed. Carter
thinks the sales tax should be on all
goods and services and should not,
exceed 3-5 percent. He further
thinks that no ncgiinth of the pupu-
lation should be exempt or shown
favoritism, given waivers or dis-
counts.
"We must stop punishing people
who have the initiative to work and
stop taxing their paychecks or in-
come," he said.
Even at age 87, Russ Carter still
has plenty of moxie and he doesn't
mind if you know how he feels.
Drive past his home on Hwy. 2 in
north Walton County and you'll see
signs out by the highway that dis-
play, his philosophy and his creed.
He hates excessive regulation and
restrictions. He believes in the
American Constitution and believes
it's been amended enough. He's an
advocate of free speech and the right
to be secure in one's home, two
things which have been eliminated
with the so-called Patriot Act.
"Individual rights are what is im-
portant," he said, "a government of,
for and by the people."
Moving to Walton County in 1992,
Russ brought his principles with
him, along with his belief that citi-
zens labor under the heavy burden
of government.
When he cleared part of his land

(above right) "WE
RECOGNIZE NO
LAWS THAT VIO-
LATE THIS CON-
STITUTION." Next
to the Bible, Russ
4- m 'Carter believes the
.' :. most important docu-
ment is the American
Constitution and be-
lieves we ought to
stop amending it.

the.DEP came calling again, threatening
to put him in jail for doing these things
without a permit.

He told me, 'Russ, I can get you out of
jail quicker for killing one of those folks
than I can for breaking these environ-
mental laws."'

ing that, lucky for me, I
had just skated under
the wire regarding the
depth of my pond and
they wouldn't be pros-
ecuting me after all."
Carter keeps up with
current affairs, too. Dur-
ing an interview with
the Herald-Breeze, he
discussed the Bush ad-
ministration.
"I'm a Republican and
I'm semi-happy with
Bush. I probably approve
of more than I disap-
prove. I fear too much so-
cialist-style control and I
don't like liberals.
"This thing where the
court recently took away
a Texas man's ranch and
gave it to Mexicans who
were trying to sneak into
the country illegally -
that's nothing but liberal
socialism. Taking land
from an American citizen
and giving it to illegal
aliens ought to be
against the law.
S "We need to close our
borders. Illegals work
cheap, but they are ruin-
ing our healthcare sys-
tem and lowering
frequently America's standard of
r citizen's living."
Regarding the Patriot
Act, Carter said, "We've
never faced this kind of
enemy before. These ter-
rorists can't be reasoned with. You can't
reason with unreasonable people. If the
Patriot Act protects us from terrorists, I
can live with it as long as the govern-
ment doesn't abuse it!"
He supports the war in Iraq. "Saddam
was a bad fellow horrendous, and *we
needed to get rid of him." However, Carter
agreed that the fact that Iraq had no real
army for war and possessed large quan-
tities of oil "probably played a part" in
the administration's deci-
sion to attack the third-
world country.
r "As for the oil crisis,
Carter said his own father
'took out a patent in 1930 on
a process for making gas out
v of coal that would have cost
about a nickel per gallon.
Unfortunately, the Big Oil
companies outmaneuvered
him by getting a patent for
other related parts of the
process, which cancelled out
his father's ability to make
it a reality.
Although Carter agrees
that America needs to break
its dependency on oil, he
says that shift must come
slowly. "The oil industry is a
huge industrial market, em-
ploying tankers, refineries,
distributors, truckers and
retailers. Change must come
slowly in order to avoid
world chaos," he said.
All things considered,
Russ Carter is a man for all
seasons,' a modern-day Don
Quixote, living right here in
our midst.
Drive past his estate late
at night under the light of a
silvery moon and you might
see him sitting astride his
faithful steed, a long joust-
ing lance under one arm,
preparing to lay siege to his
eternal enemy, another
,. windmill, turning slowly,
ever slowly in the wind.

Spanish mass at

Saint Margaret's; A place

for worship and fellowship


By BRUCE COLLIER
For some time now, Span-
ish-speaking residents of the
area have been meeting ev-
ery Sunday evening at Saint
Margaret of Scotland Catho-
lic Church.
The church is located at
247 U.S. 331, just north of
Highway 90. Mass is held at
6 p.m., but the congretation
begins gathering well before
then.
The parking lot fills
quickly. Families, couples,
and plenty of children, pour
out of the cars, many carry-
ing covered dishes for supper
after the service.
The Roman Catholic dio-
cese for this area, which ex-
tends from Pensacola to Tal-
lahassee, has appointed two
priests from the order of Mis-
sionary Servants to make the
weekly trek from Tallahasee
to DeFuniak Springs.
The priests take turns. On
September 4, the Rev. Alexis
Zuniga said mass. Next week
will be the Rev. Fancicsco
Valdovinos.


"I've been doing this for two
years," says Zuniga. He con-
sults with a member of the
congregation. "We have
about 60 members." He adds,
"More come every week."
Zuniga gives much of the
credit 'to the Rev. Dennis
O'Brian, the diocese's direc-
tor of Hispanic ministry, who
works out of Milton.
"We minister here, and in
Panama City, Blountstown,
Chipley," says Zuniga. "We
minister to a lot of poor
people."
By the time services begin,
the church is nearly full.
Children run around, playing
among the pews, but aside
from the occasional crying
baby, they keep quiet.
A full choir, minus music,
sings in Spanish as Zuniga,
his acolytes and servers en-
ter. The service will last
about an hour, including
communion, and is concluded
with with introductions of
visitors and newcomers, wed-
ding and birthday announce-

time dancing on Monday
nights changed their night of

wholesome activity for the
whole family, couples, and
singles, looking for some fun
with a great atmosphere.
Modern western square
dancing is sometimes known
as fellowship set to music.
"We are so very proud of our
club and have much pride in
what our club stands for and
for what the club has accom-
plished in the years it has


been around," said Mary
Hutcheson-Jones, spokes-
person.
The caller and instructor is
Sammy Lee. from Bonifay
and has been calling for over
28 years and is well known
in this area. He has been
calling for the local 'club for
over 13 years.
Anyone interested and
wanting to learn modern
western square dancing who
need more information is
urged to call Louie and
Wilma Flowers 951-0987, or
Mildred Jennings 892-2576,
or Howard and Lajuana
Riniker 892-5334, or Mary
Hutcheson-Jones 892-5561.
"The Chautauqua Squares
want to let those people in
Mississippi, Louisiana, and
along the gulf coast area hit
by Hurricane Katrina, that
our prayers are with every-
one affected by this storm.
We all need to count our
blessings and not complain
so much, because we look
around and we have so much
to be thankful for,"
Hutcheson-Jones said.

The command



to have faith


By Dr. Robert M. Jaye
The besetting sin of God's
people seems to be, both past
and present, the sin of little
faith. When faith departs,
fear captures what should be
the castle of the heart. It is
written in Mark 11:22, "And
Jesus answering said unto


them, Have faith in God. "
To have faith is not always
easy. After all, we are a
people of flesh, and the temp-
tations of the flesh are always
with us. We want to walk by
sight. We want God to "show"
us what he wants us to do.
The unfaithfulness of others


discourages our own faith.
Also the confused, uncertain
and troubled condition of the
world seems to make a simple
faith difficult.
Yet to have faith is reason-
able. Look about us. Cre-
ation encourages faith. Read
the lives of the great people
of God. They make faith rea-
sonable as well. Our own per-
sonal experiences of faith
makes faith reasonable, at
least for many of us.
Really, faith is absolutely
essential. It is essential if we
are to have personal assur-
ance of security with God. To
make personal ventures in-
volving risks, we must believe
that God is going to help us
through Christ. Faith is es-
sential if we are going to
please God (Hebrews 11:6).
Without faith we will not wor-
ship, pray, or witness, as we
have been commanded.
Yet we ask, how can we
have a great faith? First, we
are to pray for a greater faith.
Then we can believe the tes-
timonies of the Word of God
(Romans 10:17). Again, we
can believe the testimonies of


THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 2005

others who have lived by By obedience to the corn- love, and at the same time ex-
faith. Read Hebrews 11. mandsoftheLord, wecanin- perience the abundant life
Then use the faith you have. crease our faith, prove our that our Lord planned for us.


"They were


wonderful.
We hear kind words consistently.We're
proud that people feel comfortable
enough with us to openly tell us how
much they appreciate what we did for
g| them. In fact, it's this, appreciation that
drives us to offer the very best in
S comfort, compassion and service.
This is vlwhy you can place your confidence in us.

Walton Braves defeat Freeport Bulldogs 35-13


By PATRICK CASEY
Walton quarterback Josh
Nettles scored four touch-
downs and rushed for 229
yards as the Braves defeated
the Freeport Bulldogs 35-13
to improve to 2-0 on the sea-


son.
Walton got off to a fast start
as a Freeport fumble was
scooped up by the Braves
Herschal Cotton and re-
turned 29 yards for a touch-
downs for a 7-0 lead.


Freeport responded with a
13-play, 74-yard drive that re-
sulted in a 3-yard scoring run
by Josh Thomas to cut the
lead to 7-6. The Bulldogs at-
tempted a 2-point conversion
for the lead only to see the
pass fall incomplete.
Walton extended the lead
early i.n the second quarter as
Nettles got loose on a 61-yard
jaunt to up the Braves advan-
tage to 14-6.
Freeport's next possession
was thwarted when Bulldogs
quarterback Lloyd Anderson'
was pressured into throwing
an interception. Nettles, once
again, came up with the big
play as he intercepted the
ball and returned it 25 yards
:to the Freeport 42.
Walton put together a 10-
play drive that saw Nettles
score astouchdown from 18
yards out on a 4th-and-9 play,
with just over four minutes
left in the first half.
Freeport, which amassed
335 total yards on the night,
moved into Walton territory
in the closing moments of the
half only to run out of time at
the Braves 10-yard line as a


final pass play fell incomplete
at the horn.
Walton added to their 21-6
lead in the late third quarter
as the Walton defense forced
a short punt and Nettles
raced 41 yards on the return
for a 28-7 lead.
Walton stopped a Freeport
drive in Walton territory
early in the fourth quarter
and Nettles took the first play
from scrimmage 79 yards for
a 35-6 lead.
Freeport tallied their final
score on a 10-yard run by
Anderson, set up by a 60-yard
screen' pass to Josh Thomas
to cut the final margin to 35-
13.
The Bulldogs did an excel-
lent job controlling the clock,
but couldn't stop Walton se-
nior Josh Nettles, who had a
career night. Walton did not
complete a pass in the con-
test,
Walton will host Tallahas-
see Chiles(2-0) while

College football still full of surprises


By CHUCK HINSON
In all the tragedy that has
plagued the South since last*
week, there seems to always
be one activity that will pick
up people's spirits. College
football! And it's even gotten
off to a rocky start.
Saturday, as many of the
Auburn and Oklahoma fans
had settled in for a night of
football jWatching and early
victory celebration, a sense of
despair Jegan to settle in as
well. Both Auburn and Okla-
homa felt the sting of opening
day and both felt the reality
of no longer having, the


"perfect team."
No running game and poor
protection, aided the 17-10
upset of Oklahoma by TCU.
One unranked team that
Oklahoma knew they could
handle.
For Auburn, unranked
Georgia Tech was strong
both on offense and defense
and never let up on either
end. The Yellow *Jackets,
stung the Tigers with a 23-14
upset.
For both teams, they were
breaking in new quarter-
backs, trying new plays and
both have a lot of work, to do


this week if they expect to be
in one of the top four bowls in
January. For Auburn, their
next difficult test will come
against Sylvester Crbom's
new and improved Missis-
sippi State Bulldogs team.
Urban Meyer's Florida
Gators had an easy win over
their opponent on Saturday
as they side-swiped Wyo-
ming 32-14. Despite a solid
victory for the Gators, Meyer
said his team's running game
was pathetic and if the No. 10
team in the nation wanted to
see SURPRISE Pg 9B

Walton wins first two matches


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves volley-
ball team got the 2005 sea-
son off to a great start as they
defeated Vernon and Crest-
view to start the season 2-0.
Walton traveled to Vernon
and won the opening contest
of the season with a three
game sweep of the
Yellowjackets (25-12, 25-16,
25-14). The Braves got a
strong performance from
Cassie Bell and Stevee
Palmer, whose serves helped


the Braves take control of the
match in the second game.
The Braves played their
first home game against
Crestview and defeated the
Bulldogs in four games (13-
25, 25-22, 25-17, 25-21). The
second game was the key to
the win as the Braves edged
the Bulldogs -in a 25-22
thriller that set the tone for
Walton to capture the match
in four hotly contested
games.
Though returning only one


starter from last year,
Walton's defense played very
solidly in the victories. The
Braves kept the ball alive
and allowed mistakes by
Vernon and Crestview to be
the difference in the matches.
Junior Jesse Tucker was
thrilled at being 2-0 on the


season. "It's super. (We)
couldn't have started the sea-
son better in the first week."
Senior Sarah King added,
"We ran all summer and have
worked hard to get better.
Coach (Marla) Harrell has
got us focused on knowing
what to do to play as a team."

under control before their
match-up against Louisiana

their opponent this past
weekend. The 13th-ranked
Bulldogs steam rolled Boise
State, 48-13.
This was the same team
that went 11-1 in the 2004
season and had a ple--eison
ranking of 'No. 18. Georgia
showed they w-\ould not be
taken lightly in the 2005
season.
No. 12-ranked Louisville
had their hands full with a
team that seems to never
give anyone problems. Ken-
tucky was fired up and ready
to fight and that is exactly
what happened.
Louisville's Michael Bush

Erosion remedy in



the works for all



Walton beachfront


By DOTTY NIST
Critical beach erosion has
been a problem in Walton
County since Hurricane Opal
in 1995, and soon after that
major hurricane, county tour-
ism leaders began to pursue
remedies.
Plans for a large-scale
beach restoration project in
Walton County have met
many challenges, but Walton
County finally succeeded in
obtaining a permit to restore
its most critically eroded
area, approximately five,
miles on the west end, this
August. The project is ex-
pected to begin by late Octo-
ber or early November. The
$25+ million effort will be
funded through a combina-
tion of special tourism bed
tax revenues and state grant
funds.
On Aug. 23, the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners fulfilled ale-
gal requirement for large-
scale beach restoration
projects by approving the set-
ting ofan erosion control line
(ECL.) Located at the aver-


age location of the mean high
water elevation, the ECL will
separate privately owned
beachfront property from
state-owned submerged land
to be reclaimed in the resto-
ration project.

The commissioners also
approved the inclusion of the
Four Mile Village subdivision
beachfront to the restoration
project. While the subdivi-
sion coastline had been in-
cluded in the state-desig-
nated critically eroded area
on the west end, property
owners had previously op-
posed participating in the
restoration because of con-
cerns related to private prop-
erty rights. After additional
erosion damage occurred due
to Hurricane Dennis, that
position was reversed.
The west end is by no
means the only critically
eroded area of beach in, the
county, and, as the county
reels from the impacts of re-
cent heavy storm impacts,
officials are looking seriously
at large-scale remedies for
other erosion areas.


In an Aug. 17 meeting with
county officials, Colleen
Castille, state Department of
Environmental Protection
(DEP) secretary, encouraged
leaders to expand their large-
scale renourishment project.
Castille indicated that she
expects that most of the
county's beachfront will soon
be designated as critically
eroded. She pledged state
help in expediting approval
of additional large-scale
beach restoration in Walton
County, promising a time
frame of months rather than
years within which the.
county would be able to be-
gin pumping offshore sand.
Castille saw large-scale
beach restoration as the best
solution to erosion problems
in the county.

Brad Pickel, beach man-
agement director for the
South Walton Tourist Devel-
opment Council (TDC), has
shepherded local large-scale
beach restoration investiga-
tions and planning since
coming on board in Walton
County in 2000.


FOR MAYT i;n \\'lton County, the need for large-scale beach restoration has been demon-
strated by damage from this year's active tropical season.


On Aug. 18, Pickel told
members of the TDC Beach
Nourishment Committee
that "sand sourcing" is un-
derway offshore in an effort
to find over 10 million cubic
yards of sand suitable for re-
nourishment of Walton
County's 20 miles of non-
state-park beachfront. The
state parks have thus far not
expressed interest in partici-
pating in large-scale beach
restoration.


Pickel explained that the
sand sourcing consultants
expect to "zero in" on areas
with suitable quantities of
beach compatible sand by
November. At that time,
plans are for public work-
shops to be scheduled to tell
residents about the sand
source findings and to dis-
cuss expanding large-scale
beach restoration to the
other beachfront areas.
In the meantime, citizens


can get updates on the resto-
ration effort by attending
TDC and Beach Nourish-
ment Committee meetings.
The TDC meets at 9 a.m. on
second Wednesdays. The
Beach Nourishment Com-
mittee meets at 8:30 a.m. on
third Thursdays. Both meet-
ings take place at the TDC
office at the corner of U.S. 98
and U.S. 331 :and are open to
public attendance and par-
ticipation.


U.S. 98 realignment around Freeport begins


By DOTTY NIST
"Our goal is to havi a safe


project for everybody," said
Eric Rosenstein.


Rosenstein is senior project
engineer for the U.S. 331 re-


PRESENT AT the Sept. 1 informational workshop on the U.S. 331 realignment in the
Freeport area were (from left). Greenhorne & Omara representatives Charles Foster, senior
project manager, and Eric Rosenstein, senior project engineer, along with Darryl Carpenter
of C. W. Roberts, contractor for the project.


alignment project, which is
getting started this week. ,
The state Department of
Transportation held an infor-
mational workshop for the
project on Sept. 1 at Freeport
Elementary School.
Rosenstein and his col-
league Charles Foster will be
filling the role of construction
inspection on the bypass
project. The C.W. Roberts
company will provide con-
struction.
The 5.5 mile project will
realign U.S. 331 from Jolly
Bay Road south of S.R. 20 to
north of Owl's Head Road.
The purpose, Foster said, is
to relieve traffic congestion in
downtown Freeport by di-
verting nonlocal traffic
around the city.
This will be a two-lane con-
struction project, but Foster
said that sufficient right-of-
way has been acquired by the
state to four-lane the section
at a future date.
Three bridges will be part


of the new 5.5-mile bypass,
along with safety improve-
ments and drainage up-
grades.

Other improvements asso-
ciated with the project will
take place at the S.R. 20/U.S.
331 intersection. These will
include widening of the road-
way, the installation of mast
arm traffic lights, drainage
upgrades, bike lanes, side-
walks, and safety improve-
ments.
The state-funded project
will cost $24.5 million. It is
expected to take two and a
half years to complete, allow-
ing for completion by sum-
mer 2007.
The project will traverse
wetlands containing pro-
tected wildlife. Rosenstein
said the contractors will be
taking care to safeguard
those animals during con-
struction.
Utility relocation for the
project is ongoing and is ex-


pected to continue for the
next 45 to 90 days.
Rosenstein said the project
will not affect traffic with the
exception df the intersection
work. Motorists will be made
aware of any lane shifts dur-
ing construction, he added.
Businesses in the project
area are to be provided with
full ingress and egress and
the safety of children getting
to and from schools will be
emphasized.
"Our goal is no accidents,"
Rosenstein said.

Foster and Rosenstein en-
couraged the public to con-
tact them for information on
the project and to express
any of their concerns during
the construction.

Red Cross says everyone can help Katrina victims


By DOTTY NIST
, "Every little bit counts,"
said Ana Correa, spokesper-
son for the American Red
Cross.
Small monetary donations
are appreciated just as much
as million-dollar ones, and
those small amounts add up
to a "great amount of money,"
she noted.
The Red Cross has raised
over $352 million in gifts and
pledges for Hurricane Kat-
rina relief.

However, while many
people may be interested in
donating material items such
as clothing, food or cleaning


supplies, the Red Cross is
does not accept these "in-
kind" items.
"When you look at the type
of assistance we offer,"
Correa said, "it is difficult to
take these donations."
"What do you do with 100
water bottles when we need
100,000 to 300,000?" she
commented.
She said the organization
would incur high expenses in
personnel, time and money in
handling and distributing in-
kind donations.
Through monetary dona-
tions, the Red Cross is able
to "immediately transfer"
funds to disaster victims, she



explained. When the victims
purchase needed items with
Red Cross vouchers, localt
merchants benefit and local
economies are strengthened,
she added.
The Red Cross is able to
accept large corporation do-
nations such as the water
donation recently provided
by the Anheiser-Busch com-
pany, she explained.

Other organizations such
as USA Freedom Corps are
also coordinating relief ef-
forts and other resources, in-
cluding in-kind donations.
Correa recommends that in-
dividuals interested in mak-


ing small donations of mate-
rial items visit the latter
organization's web site,
www.usafreedomcorps.gov,
Correa said people are us-
ing many strategies to collect
funds for financial donations
to the Red Cross. She had
heard of an instance of sev-
eral families collaborating on
a "free" yard sale. People.who
attended were able to take
yard sale items free of charge
as long as they provided a
monetary contribution.
Those contributions were
then turned over to the Red
Cross for Hurricane Katrina
disaster relief.
She said her daughter, a


student, working with her
school's student services, has
started a three-week pro-
gram allowing for students to
donate their lunch change
toward Red Cross Hurricane
Katrina relief efforts.
Correa notes that the Red
Cross has received thou-
sands of calls from people
who can't find loved ones
from disaster areas. She
urges that families use infor-
mation on the organization's
web site to prepare for pos-
sible future disasters by
making a plan which in-
cludes designating a contact
person for these events. In-
formation on a disaster sup-


ply kit is also provided.
Correa recommends that
the public to visit the Red
Cross web site, www.redcross
.org, for more information on
the Hurricane Katrina relief
effort and on other ways to
help.

The Red Cross may be con-
tacted by phone for credit
card donations at 1-800-
HELP-NOW or 1-800-257-
7575 for Spanish speakers.
The mailing address for con-
tributions is American Red
Cross, P.O. Box 37243, Wash-
ington DC 20013. Donations
may be specially-designated
for Hurricane Katrina relief.

The Child Advocate

By JULIE HURST, director
Emerald Coast Children's Advocacy Center

I am writing this article from home today. Hurricane Kat- *
rina has halted operations at the Children's Advocacy
Center. We certainly are not complaining because there are
many of our friends to the west in much more dire
straits. Dire straits they will experience for days and weeks
to come. We will keep them in our prayers and thoughts.
Hurricanes are a grim reminder to me of child abuse. Last
year at the Children's Advocacy Center, a few days before
Ivan hit our area, we witnessed what most said was the
worst case of child abuse they had even seen.
A couple of children were brought to the Center underfed
and literally bruised from head to toe. As many of us fought
back the tears, we embraced those children to make their
lives a little better that night. The Children Protection Team
provided medical care and comfort to the children. Law en-
forcement put the wheels in motion to begin the criminal
investigation. Department of Children and Families ensured
the welfare and safety of the children. Center staff provided
food, clothing and toys.
When we left that evening, the children were on their way
to a safe home. Driving home that evening, fighting back
the tears, I v.as unsure if I could continue this work. My
thoughts were with those two children. When I arrived
home, I hugged my son and realized if I or the wonderful.
folks I work with didn't do this work, who would?
Ivan came and went. We all returned wearily back to
work. I remember walking into the Center and going through
the kitchen. I saw two children giggling and eating
cheerios. It took me a few moments to realize that those
were the same two children from the week before.
It was amazing what a week of love and caring can do for
children who have experienced abuse and neglect. Much of
that is attributed to the wonderful foster parents that opened
their, arms and hearts to those children.
I am happy to say the children are doing well and the
offender was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Hurricanes come and go (and we certainly have had our
share lately), but some children live in a storm of abuse
every day. Those children rescued before Ivan were only two
of the 1,500 child abuse allegations tracked and managed
by.the Children's Advocacy Center over the past year in Oka-
loosa and Walton counties. I worry about the children we
will never know about.
You may ask yourselfwhat you can do to help rescue child
victims of abuse and neglect. If you see or suspect child
abuse, call the Florida Abuse Hotline at 1-800-962-2873.
Reporter information is confidential. Your call may be the
catalyst that finally makes the difference in the life of a
child. Children will thank God for people like you. By law,
some professionals are mandatory reporters. Mandatory or
not, whether you agree or not, we all have a moral obliga-
tion to protect the children in our community.
By the way, there is an extraordinary need for foster par-
ents in our community. If anyone is interested in learning
more about becoming a foster parent, please contact Fami-
lies First Network at 1-800-981-KIDS or (850-833-3898.

In emergency session on
Tuesday, Aug. 30, the Walton
Board of County Commis-
sioners approved an exten-
sion of the contract with
Crowder-Gulf to cover the
pick up of debris from Hurri-
cane Katrina. Crowder-Gulf
was completing their work on
the contract for Hurricane
Dennis debris removal that
would have expired in mid-
September.
According to county Fi-
nance Director Bill Imfeld
who oversees the contract,
Crowder Gulf is starting
clean-up on the Coastal Dune
Lakes, beginning with Little
Redfish Lake.
Under the extended con-
tract, Crowder-Gulf will pro-

private contractors work on
their homes need to have the
debris on the beach now or
make plans to haul it away
themselves. Once the one
pass is made, the county will
not haul beach debris.
The extended contract does
not include roadside pickup

ment indicated there was not
enough storm debris in areas
other than on the beach to
warrant a special pick up ef-
fort.

In addition the Salvation
Army is providing relocation
counseling, clothing, furni-

families who are making
these communities home.
"Our prayers. are with the
many families and individu-

Rummell. "At a time like
this, we can only offer our
help to deal with this,tragedy
and words of hope for the fu-

covered from Hurricane An-
drew, like Charleston recov-
ered from Hurricane Hugo, I
am confident that New Or-
leans and the other impacted
communities will recover,
and will one day be stronger
than ever."

WCSD responds to water rescue effort


The Walton County
Sheriff's Office, along with
the South Walton Fire Dis-
trict, responded to a danger-
ous water rescue effort at ap-
proximately 1:30 p.m., Aug.
30.
A white male subject was
spotted in the Gulf of Mexico
at Ed Waline Park. Two
deputies from the Sheriff's
Office Beach Patrol Unit
launched their jet skis and
made numerous attempts to
reach the victim, almost be-
coming victims themselves.
South Walton Fire District
personnel entered the water
in the rescue effort, and due
to the rough conditions which
exist, became victims and
had to be assisted out of the
water and were subsequently
transported to Sacred Heart
Hospital.
Air Heart responded to the
location in an effort to spot
the original victim from the
air and was able to locate a
man approximately 100-200
yards east of Ed Waline Park,
still' in the water. Sheriff's
office and fire department
personnel responded to that
area and were able to recover
the victim from the water,
with the assistance from wa-
ter rescue instructor Gary


Allan Wise, Santa Rosa
Beach. The man was pro-
nounced dead at the scene
and was transported to Sa-
cred Heart Hospital.
The victim has been iden-
tified as David Dubuc, 41, a
visitor for Metairie, LA.
Dubuc went down to the wa-
ter and observed his nephew,
Cody Ziegler, 13, in distress
in the water. Dubuc entered
the water to rescue the child.
Dubuc made contact with the
child, however, he was un-
able to get him back to the
beach.
Michael A. Comeaux, 36,
also a relative and who was
visiting the area with Dubuc
entered the water to assist
Dubuc and Ziegler. He was
able to rescue Ziegler but was
unable to rescue Dubuc.

The 2004 hurricane season in Florida was historic not only for the number of named storms.that
struck the state, but also for the amount of damage caused. The 2005 season, already 'underway,
has produced a tropical storm and a hurricane that have made landfall along the northern Gulf of
Mexico.


Some of the storm damage sustained in 2004
involved the infrastructure'of Florida's investor-
owned electric utilities, including power lines,
poles, substations and transformers. The five
investor-owned utilities under the jurisdiction
of the Florida PSC (Florida Power & Light,
Progress Energy Florida, Tampa Electric
Company, Gulf Power Company, and Florida
Public Utilities Company) reported damages
'of $1.45 billion .from hurricanes Charley,
Frances, Ivan and Jeanne. These utilities
combined are responsible for approximately
78 percent of the state's retail electric energy
sales to about 8.6 million customers.

The extent of the damages and the power
outages caused by the storms led many in
Florida to ask whether the state should adopt
a policy of burying its power lines. A statewide
decision on this matter rests with the
Legislature. However, the Public Service
Commission was asked by the Florida House
of Representatives to provide an estimate of
what it might cost, over a 10-year period, to
put transmission and distribution lines
underground.

The preliminary estimates of the cost.of placing
transmission and distribution lines
underground is $146 billion. This figure applies
only to the lines owned by the investor-owned
electric companies and does not include those
operated by municipal utilities or electric
cooperatives.

Florida's investor-owned utilities have a total
of 14,566 miles of transmission lines, the value
of which is about $2.4 billion, only 183 miles
of which are underground. Transmission lines
are those that carry high voltage current -
typically 69,000 to 500;000 volts significant
distances. A transmission normally ends at
an electric substation, where the voltage is
reduced for distribution. The estimated cost
to bury these transmission lines is $52 billion.

Those same utilities have approximately
115,961 miles of primary distribution lines
worth an estimated $7 billion. Distribution lines


normally transport lower voltage current -
usually 2,400 to 35,000 volts --.shorter
distances. Distribution lines may take
electricity to "step-down" transformers for
distribution directly to homes and businesses.
The estimated cost of burying distribution lines
is $94 billion.

Because these figures are estimates, they
could change substantially subject toa number
of variables.

Some cities and counties in Florida require
power lines in new residential developments
be placed underground. In addition, in the
wake of the 2004 hurricane season, a number
of communities around the state have, initiated
plans to bury power lines.

A decision to place power lines underground
is one that is carefully weighed by those
communities engaged in the process.
Underground power lines may 'be less
vulnerable to wind damage, for example, but
may be more susceptible to flooding. Cost is
a major factor as is the additional time required
to diagnose and repair underground facilities
when problems do occur.

Elected officials, with their unique grasp of
their local communities, are the logical
decision-makers on the cost-benefit:of placing
electric facilities underground.




Five investor owned utilities.
33 municipal utilities.
18 rural electric cooperatives,
including two located outside Florida,
serving customers in the state.

Braulio L. Baez is the Chairman of the Florida
Public Service Commission. The PSC sets the
rates regulated utility companies charge for
natural gas, electric and telephone service
within the state. In 36 counties, it sets the price
you pay for the water you drink, if your water
company is privately owned.

AROUND THE SOUTH


With the recent de-
vistation and wide-
spread tragedy
throughout the Gulf
Coast caused by
Hurricane Katrina,
thousands from all
over the country are
pouring into New
Orleans and the
Mississippi coast to
lend aid. But, locally
many are doing their
part to help the re-
covery and rebuild-
ing of that area.

For more than a week,
images of death, despair,
destruction,rescue, triumph,
and pictures of people over-
coming adversity, have filled
the airwaves and newspa-
pers. It has been an everyday.
struggle that the region has
had to endure and the men-
tal, as well as, physical
trauma that has been forced
upon those people, has been
incredible.
A continuous stream of
video of people crying, fight-
ing, dying, and surviving, are
images burned into our
minds everyday and some of
the last thoughts we have
before we go to bed every
night. It is a natural disaster
that has affected all of us and
leaves us all with wanting to
do our part for their survival.
Well, many of. the: area
businesses, resorts and or-
ganizations are doing just
that.
This past Monday, The
Funky Blues Shack in Destin
had a benefit that raised
thousands for water and
supplies to be sent to the
Hurricane relief. The benefit
concert and the drop-off loca-
tions at various nightclubs,
restaurants and bars all over
the Emerald Coast, has
prompted hundreds to collect
canned .goods, clothing, vari-
ous health and medical
items, food and water and
funds.
But the volunteer and fun-
draising is going even fur-
ther. Besides the food and
water drop-off locations,
bank donations, roadside
and intersection change col-
lectors, and more activities
are slated for the coast.
On Sept. 17, from noon to
10 p.m. Gulf Place will show-
case a variety of local per-
formers and will host a silent
auction with all proceeds
benefitting the Hurricane
Katrina relief fund.

Groups such as Cadillac
Willy, The Under Dogs,
Stealing Mona, Mark Gris-
som Band, Bill Garrett, Todd
Henderson and others will
perform throughout the af-
ternoon on the events stage.
A silent auction will also
take place with various


prizes ranging from restau-
rant dinners and vacation
packages, to clothes and golf
course playing time.
Sponsors like H & M Tent
and Party Rentals, Ski Pro-
ductions, Hilltop Produc-
tions, Miss Lucille's Lovelace
Interiors and Resort Quest
are donating items and
working with Gulf Place to
make this event ,not only a
success, but an impressive
money-maker.
For more information, call
267-8458.
The second upcoming
event that will be raising
money for the victims of
Hurricane Katrina, is Rose-
mary Beach. They have re--
cently announced their
Tunes in the Dunes starring
Grammy award-winning
performer Kim Carnes, with
special guests Greg Barnhill,
Matraca Berg and Jeff
Hanna or the Nitty Gritty
Dirt Band.
The concert is slated for
Oct. 8, 7 p.m. on the St.
Augustine Green.
Carnes famous 1980's
tune, "She's Got Betty Davis'
Eyes," catapulted her into
the spotlight of rock and roll.
Her newest album, Chasin'
Wild Trains, is a collection of
many of her recent hits and
favorites from the past.
She will perform many of
those songs and will be
joined on stage by special
guests who combined have
song writing credits and
Grammy awards for such
performers as Amy Grant,
Patty Loveless, Reba McEn-
tire, Faith Hill, Martina
McBride, Hootie, & The
Blowfish, Loretta Lynn,
Deana Carter, the Dixie
Chicks and many others.
For more information, call
Rosemary Beach at 231-
2900 or Hilltop Productions
at 951-2148.
Throughout the next sev-
eral upcoming weeks, hun-
dreds of more events, fun-
draisers, bake sales, con-
certs, auctions, parties, ga-
las and "happenings" will be
advertised. It is a way that
we are able to lend a helping
hand to those thousands
that are in need.
Since last Monday, the
nation has changed dramati-
cally. Not only the southern
landscape, but the attitudes
of millions has once again
ignited a deep concern and
feeling of compassion for our
fellow, mankind.
If you are not able to attend
any of the above events, give
to your American Red Cross
or simply stop by the tempo-
rary shelter at the DeFuniak
Springs National Gaurd
Armory facility on Hwy 83.
Ask some of the storm refu-
gees their first-hand account
of the disaster and learn just
how much our small and
large donations have helped
them.
It will be surprising how
much they appreciate what
has been done and how
frightening it is to think that
all this happened just four
short hours away from us.
