By TAMMY KEARCE
Bonnie Bonner addressed
the DeFuniak Springs City
Council representing "Wal-
ton Cares," a group of local
volunteers requesting use of
the local National Guard Ar-
mory building after the Red
Cross leaves the area.
"We have evolved past the
initial entry phase and now
services need to be sustained
without interruption," said
Bonner, "We have to consider
the long-term need of a large
group of displaced people."
The armory is currently
providing approximately
eight hundred evacuees from
Hurricane Katrina with a
mailing address, internet ac-
cess and resources for hous-
ing and funding. If the shel-
ter is shut down evacuees
may have to travel as far as

too, such as laundry soap,

cola for similar services.
Since most evacuees have
been placed in homes
throughout the community,
few if any spend the night in
the building, but most still
use the armory for mail and
computer access.
"When the Red Cross pulls
out, we have volunteers and
resources ready and willing
to step in and help,'' said
Bonner who is willing to be


personally responsible for
the volunteer operation. "We
just can not have people com-
ing to check in and finding
the shelter closed."
"We have seen this storm's
devastation first hand," said
City Council Member Roy
McLeod, "and we have the
responsibility tokeep this
shelter open for those dis-
placed people." The council
unanimously agreed that city
staff would be authorized to


coordinate with county au-
thorities and responsible vol-
unteer organizations and
keep the shelter open for as
longas needed.
"Now we will go to the
county commission and EOC
and convince' them that we
have qualified people to sus-
tain the operation," said
Bonner. To join Walton Cares.

HURRICANE KATRINA evacuees, many still relying on the shelter, need new supplies,
food and toiletries.


A GROUP OF LOCAL professionals have approached the DeFuniak Springs City Coun-
cil about operating the former National GuardArmory as a permanent disaster shelter after
the current Red Cross shelter is closed.


Donation needs changing as


Katrina recovery continues


The Governor's Commis-
sion on Volunteerism and
Community Service, Volun-
teer Florida, congratulates
Floridians for their generos-
ity and the amazing outpour-
ing of relief supplies collected,
for survivors of Hurricane
Katrina. While critical hu-
man needs still are being
met, Volunteer Florida pro-
vides the following informa-'
tion about items that will
and will not be needed in the
coming days.
Monetary Gifts The
Best Way to Help:
Continue making mon-
etary gifts to the relief orga-
nization of your choice. Every
gift, no matter how small,
helps enable these organiza-
tions to meet the needs of
hurricane survivors quickly
and with the maximum
amount of flexibility. Con-
sider a planned giving pro-
gram to help meet the long-
term needs of survivors. A
small donation each payday
will go a long way!
Donations of Used
Clothing Not Needed at
this Time:
At this time, donations of
used clothing are not needed.
Because of the characteristic
generosity of the American
people, relief organizations
have received all the used


clothing donations they have
the capacity to manage.
As a result, they no longer
are accepting donations, of
used clothing fo'- hurricane
relief. Links to relief-organi-
zation web sites with more
information about used-
clothing donations are avail-
able at
volunteerflorida.org, If vol-
unteers have collected large
amounts of used clothing, or
choose to do so, be prepared
to store these items until
they can be accepted and pro-
cessed.
Organized Donation
Drives:
Community and faith-
based organizations that are
conducting. organized dona-
tion drives are strongly en-
couraged to make. contact
with an organization in the
affected area. Partnering
with an organization that
has expressed a need for spe-
cific goods, and a willingness
and ability to unload and dis-
tribute them to survivors, is
the most effective way to do-
nate.
"We ask everyone to please
confirm the need before col-
lecting items. Please don't
make assumptions about
what you think is needed for
hurricane survivors," said
Wendy Spencer, CEO ofVol-


unteer Florida. "Our Web
site, volunteerflorida.org, has'
a' list of needed items and
good advice about how to get
those items where they are
needed most."
As the Gulf States begin to
move into the recovery phase
of post-disaster 'operations,
needs are changing. Follow-
ing are.examples of items
currently needed in the im-
pacted areas.
Personal Hygiene/Com-
fort Items:
Sunscreen; hand cleaner; in-
sect repellant; toothbrushes;
toothpaste; washcloths and
,towels; feminine sanitary
products; soap; alcohol/per-
oxide; shaving supplies; den-
ture/contact lens supplies;.
clean-up items; gloves -
leather/rubber/cloth; shov-
els, rakes; pitchforks; wheel-
barrows; garbage bags (large,
heavy duty); hand trucks;
bleach;lysol spray and liquid;
ponchos; dust masks; wasp/
hornet spray; plastic sheet-
ing (6 ml).
Think Globally, Help Lo-
cally:
Individuals who want to
volunteer to assist Katrina
survivors may be able to vol-
unteer locally. Florida is host
to approximately 2,000
evacuees from the impacted
areas who need assistance.


ram r u e sCO hired


as regional advocate


for Florida Chamber


The Florida Chamber of
Commerce has established a
new regional advocate pro-
gra m that seeks to help con-
nect local businesses to state
legislative activity and politi-
cal opportunities. The first
regional advocate to be hired
by the Chamber is Pam
Tedesco, former president
and CEO of the Walton
County Chamber of Com-
merce, who recently assumed
her position as regional ad-
vocate for north Florida.
"The laws passed each ses-
sion directly affect busi-
nesses of all sizes in all in-
dustries throughout Florida,
yet it's often difficult for em-
ployers to stay abreast of the
developments in Tallahas-
see," said Doug Wheeler, vice
president of grassroots advo-
cacy and PAC development,
Florida Chamber of Com-
merce. "This new regional
approach is designed to help


Florida businesses become
even more active in Florida's
political and legislative pro-
cesses."
Tedesco served as presi-
dent and CEO of the Walton
County Chamber of Com-
merce, the county's largest
professional business organi-
zation, from 1999 through
2005. Prior to this role, she
worked for the Chemung
County Chamber of Com-
merce in the Southern Fin-
ger Lakes Region of New
York.
"Working in the business
community for more than 15
years, I have seen first hand
the importance of political
involvement," said Tedesco. "I
look forward to maximizing
this new program to help our
local businesses across North
Florida improve our eco-
nomic landscape."

Schools see


evacuee


student
By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County School
Board met on Tuesday, Sep-
tember 6, at the Tivoli Ad-
ministrative Complex in De-
Funiak Springs to discuss
the influx of evacuee stu-
dents, volunteer coaching,
and fuel supply as well as
several other issues.
Walton County has seen an
influx of over 500 students,
mainly across the bay in
south Walton, due to the
evacuation and forced reloca-
tion of people from the effects
of Hurricane Katrina in Mis-
s i ppi, Louisiana, and Ala-
bania.
The relocation of people
has caused the student popu-
lation to swell at Emerald
Coast Middle School and Van
R. Butler Elementary School.
Superintendent Carlene
Anderson has suggested that
a cap on enrollment may be
necessary to keep those two
schools from becoming ex-
tremely overcrowded. New
students may have to be
shuttled to Freeport schools
to help alleviate any further
overcrowding issues as the
number of evacuee students
continues to grow.
Prior to Hurricane Kat-
rina, the school district had
been within its mandatory
class size reduction regula-
tions. The Class-Size Reduc-
tion Initiative is an amend-
ment to the Florida Consti-
tution that mandates the re-
duction of class size by 2010.
Classes must be reduced to
18 students in grades K-3, 22
in grades 4-8, and 25 for
grades 9-12.
The gain in new students,
mainly evacuees that held a
second home or apartment in
south Walton or had family
in the area, currently has the
district considering seeking a
waiver to base the county's
classroom numbers on num-
bers held before the addition
of evacuees.
As of Sept. 14, a total of
527 evacuee children are en-
tering Walton schools, with
the highest concentration
south of the bay. At South
Walton High 124 students,
Emerald Coast Middle 92,
Van R Butler Elementary -
136, Bay Elementary 31.At
Freeport High 5, Freeport
Middle 9, Freeport Elemen-
tary 88. At Walton High 8,
Walton Middle 6, West De-
Funiak Elementary 3,
Maude Saunders Elemen-
tary 19 and six new stu-
dents in Paxton.
The school district is
closely eyeing the diesel gas
supply as it is in short sup-
ply.
Hurricane Katrina has
crippled gas supplies
throughout the Southeast,
and is keeping most school
districts on a week-to-week
supply schedule as resources
are used to help the devas-


t influx
tated areas of the Gulf Coast.
Superintendent Anderson
mentioned that field trips
and travel would be limited
as much as possible, but the
rumor of a four-day school
week was not in the plans at
this time.
The subject of volunteer
coaches was another that
took up some discussion time
at the meeting. Volunteer
coaches are not employees of
the school district, but have
direct access to students
through practice and events.
The district is interested
in .estahliJliing a policy that
sets forth guidelines and re-
sponsibilities for the indi-
vidualg who wish to work
with students. Most coaches
have a teaching certificate
and have gone through the
Level 2 screening of finger-
printing and/or have a coach-
ing endorsement. Volunteers
can currently take an online
course that has three compo-
nents costing $200 apiece.
Mark Davis spoke out
against just forcing volun-
teers to take the component
without a clear policy set in
place as to requirements and
duties or responsibilities.
The board will likely develop
such a policy in the near fu-
ture.
The board approved the
contract to employ school re-
source officers for the 2005-
'06 school year. The cost of the
officers is estimated at
$156,000 and is paid from
the Safe Schools Allocation
fund. Resource officers are
assigned to Walton High,
Walton Middle, Freeport
High, Paxton High, Emerald
Coast Middle, South Walton
High, Walton Vo-Tech, and
Walton Academy schools.

The board approved an ad-
dendum to the student pro-
gression plan regarding 7th
grade retention. Students in
the 7th grade who score
Level 1 on the FCAT Read-
ing Assessment will be re-
tained, regardless of their
performance in their aca-
demic course work. Recom-
mendations for promotion or
retention to the 8th grade
will be made when the final
FCAT scores are received.
Parents will be notified in
writing of their child's reten-
tion or exemption from reten-
tion due to good cause.
Trip requests were ap-
proved for the Freeport High,
School History Club to fly via
U.S. Airways from Pensacola
to Washington D.C. to visit
historical sites on February
17-22, 2006.
Trip requests were also
approved for the Walton,
Freeport, and South Walton
High golf teams.
Soccer and cross country
schedules were also ap-
proved for their upcoming
seasons.

Walton County Fair: 81 and full of fun!


The fair dates this year:
October 17 22. Check the
rules online at www.


thewaltoncountyfair.com or
call the fair office I 2-526,))
for details.


By ROBIN NEWTON
What on earth can you do
with that huge Japanese per-
simmon? And, what about
that sweet potato you kept
everyone from eating be-
cause it was so unbelievably
big? Surely that pumpkin in
your garden is bigger than
any you have ever seen. Tur-
nips as big as your arm? En-
ter these into the "largest"
category of the agriculture di-
vision at the Walton County
Fair on October 17-22. You
just might win.
As you look forward to the
old favorites (midway rides,
animals and booths), you will
see some new additions to the
fair this year. Kids who have
spent all those rainy days
constructing villages and
towns will be able to enter
the new K'Nex and Lego cat-
egory in the handicrafts di-


vision.
Are your beautiful flower
arrangements the talk of the
neighborhood? What about
the wreath you made for the
door at Christmas? It is time
to show off your talents in the
brand new flower arranging
division. Kids, adults, and
even professionals can entire
their silk or dried arrange-
ments at the fair!
It's time to frame those
photos you took this year and
enter them in the amateur
photography contest. How
about those jams and jellies?
Surely you want to show
them off! Were you able to
talk your grandmother into
giving you the recipe for her
mouth-watering cake? If so,
the baking contest awaits
your entry.
Greased pigs and laughing
kids are a great combination.


And, nothing beats seeing
kids diving into the hay
searching for treasures. The
free kids' events start every
night at 6:30 in the arena.
The costume contest on Sat-

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2005


Editor's Comment


By RONKELLEY


It's all up

After a recent editorial on this page regarding the future
of the Chautauqua Assembly, I had high hopes that the
DeFuniak Springs City Council might take those words to
heart and make an honest effort to support an event that
celebrates our history, our very creation as a community.
The Chautauqua Assembly not only represents what we
were, but also what we hope to be an enlightened center
for culture, wisdom and understanding.
Needless to say, I was disappointed. A majority of council
members apparently found no merit in the event or what it
represents. To make matters worse, during the public hear-
ing, after Councilman Roy McLeod asked the council to re-
consider the proposal and before the public had a chance to
speak, one council member said the matter had already been
decided.
If that was true, then there's no need for the public to
attend public hearings. Apparently, they are for form's sake
only and are little more than one of those pesky legal re-
quirements.
Of course, I realize that I am out of step with modern
thinking. I'm one of those of old dinosaurs that still think
government is supposed to work to serve the people, and
not the other way around.
All of this adds up to just one thing it's up to us now not
that this is anything new. It's always been up to us. It's just
that our lives are so busy that sometimes we forget how
important it is to make sure we preserve our rich history.
A dear friend of mine, Jean Foreman Fazekas, recently
brought me an actual season ticket for the 1916 Florida
Chautauqua Assembly. We're going to donate it to the Wal-
ton County Heritage Museum, so that everyone can see it;
so that our children and their children will have another
link to the event that helped launch this city.
How sad it would be if today's Chautauqua Assembly sud-
denly ceased to exist. There are officials that think that
would not be a big deal. I guess, they are right. After all, the
Kentucky Derby is just another horse race. The Super Bowl
is just a football game and the World Series is just another
baseball game. What's the big deal?
Maybe after the Chautauqua Assembly ends in DeFuniak,
we could tear down the Hall of Brotherhood. After all, it's
just another old building taking up space where a parking
lot could be built. The library is another ancient, old build-



Editor,
In this present time, many people have a negative atti-
tude about almost everything-if not our president and our
country, it's our state or our governor, our city or mayor, our
schools and their leaders, the churches and its people. Nev-
ertheless, I want to thank God that I'm a Christian living in
America!
I came to Walton County twenty-three years ago, and I
love it here. I am proud to be the pastor of the Gaskin First
Baptist Church. This church, like most other churches, has
had difficult times in days past. It has had it problems, but
the flag has never been lowered. For one hundred years, it
has stood firmly as a witness for the Lord in the Gaskin com-
munity. Some of the greatest people I know serve here. As
pastor, I want to encourage you to come and help us cel-
ebrate our centennial on October 14, 15, and 16. There will
be some great singing, spirit-filled preaching, and delicious
food.
I want to praise God for the victories He has given, take
inventory of the present time, and renew our vision for to-
morrow. Upon my retirement in January of next year, we
will be closing my ministry at Gaskin First Baptist Church
with a three-day revival with Dr. Jerry Spencer preaching
and Richard Jones, guitarist from Nashville, Tennessee, per-
forming each night.
We would like to extend a warm invitation to each and
every one to attend and enjoy our centennial celebration in
October. We hope to see you there!
James Barrentine, Pastor
Gaskin First Baptist Church

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Opening hom

SPERSONALCOM S By ROBIN NEWTON


."---- ~I-


Editor,
Every week it seems numerous migrant workers are ar-
rested/fined for no drivers license. If they have no license,
then they have no insurance.
Accidents involving non-insured drivers is the biggest fac-
tor in car insurance increases. Alot of the migrants living in
DeFuniak have Alabama licence plates. You can get an Ala-
bama license plate without valid proof of insurance, plus
Florida residents are required by law to have Florida plates.
The Herald should do a story showing how our current
sheriff and new city marshal are handling this problem.
Shawn Workman
DeFuniak Springs



Dear Editor,

The financial rape of working class Americans continues
unabated by the storm.,In fact, the natural disaster of Kat-
rina and the self-inflicted disaster of Iraq only increase the
opportunity for this piracy, taking place in partnership with
our government. Apparently, laws are simply changed to
make these acts legal.
The latest acts of "compassionate conservatism" coming
out of this administration are the awarding of government
disaster recovery contracts to Haliburton and the immedi-
ate suspension of the Davis-Bacon Act by President
Bush. This act requires all government contractors to pay
"prevailing rates" for the area, in this case $9.00 per hour.
Government contractors are now free to pay less than $9.00/
hour. Keep in mind that $9.00/hour for one wage earner in
a family of four means you are earning less than the pov-
erty line of $19,157. This must be too much for our govern-
ment to require. These companies remind me of the pirate
ships of old they had no country (Haliburton was moved
off-shore by Dick Cheney to avoid U,S. taxes), they just
floated around and stole from their victims.
Same story just different players immediately after Kat-
rina, Murphy Oil increased gasoline prices to local stations
by $.99/gallon in a two-day period. At one point the total
price charged to local owners was $3.38/gallon. According
to one station owner, these price increases did not apply to
Murphy Oil stations located at Wal-Mart stores and were
over $.97/gallon more than prices charged by some suppli-
ers. Wal-Mart stations apparently have top priority on fuel
allocations as well. This allowed Wal-Mart stations to not
only sell their gasoline cheaper than the local independent
stations but also provided them with fuel when indepen-
dent stations could get none. Again, price-gauging laws ap-
parently only apply to small, independent station owners.
Just an added slap in the face, when one of the station own-
ers contacted our U.S. Representative, Jeff Miller, for assis-
tance, they were told to contact the Better Business Bu-
reau.
Have we no backbone? Have they no shame? When is the
time for working class Americans to stand up against these
reverse Robin Hoods and stop this flow of ill-gotten gains
that continue to make the rich even filthier and leave work-
ing folks unable to afford to live in the "richest country on
earth".

was also quite painless. I be-
lieve she was the first
evacuee to be enrolled as a
student with the online
school. One telephone call
started that ball rolling and
the usual 2-4 week process
was completed within 24
hours. So, the 15-year-old sits
at the computer in the den
and works on school, while
her dad is no more than one
room away from her.
Meals at our house are a bit
different than they were be-
fore the family came to stay
with us. Dinners tend to be
more of the "more bang for
the buck" sort, but fresh sal-
ads every night help with the
nutritional value. Conversa-
tions around the dinner table
are now more varied. Life in
Mississippi, other friends,
and differences are the gen-
eral topics of discussion. But,
since the dad and my hus-
band were friends years ago,
more often than not, the con-
versation turns to antics and
escapades of their lives as
young men. I can't help but
punctuate almost every re-
count with my own form of
"Don't try this at home."
Walton County has cer-
tainly stepped up the to plate
when it comes to Hurricane
Katrina. I stopped by the Ar-
mory to drop off five crates
of books from The Bookstore
the Thursday after the hur-
ricane. There were so many
people from Alabama, Missis-
sippi. and Louisiana, and all
of them were being treated
with such respect and dig-
nit v. When I returned the
next day to check on some
things, I was shocked be-
cause there were not many
people there at all. When I
asked what had happened, I
was happily informed that
they had been "adopted out."
I am pleased to be able to
share my home with this
.family. I know others who
are sharing theirs feel the
same way. The fellowship is
priceless. Their gratitude is
unending. But, truly, we are
the ones whi are grateful.

At least part of the pa-

been due to the problem of
insurance coverage for out of
state treatment.
According to Howell, the
insurance directors of Missis-
sippi and Louisiana agreed to
extend their residents' state-
administered coverage to
outside of their home states.
Residents of a number of
nursing homes and assisted
living facilities also had to be
transferred to Florida facili-
ties. Some will be here tem-
porarily, others permanently.
"I think the Louisiana
evacuees are going to be here
a longer time," said Howell.
Howell expressed his spe-

some of the evacuees were
diabetic, and that their cov-
erage was running out. There
were children who needed
medicine, too."
Howell and two of his
P.A.'s, Robert Knox and
Christy Allen, got to work.
Assisted by two other volun-
teer doctors from Shands
Hospital in Gainesville, they
set up a treatment facility in
the Red C ro- shelter on S.R.
83. Patients were also
treated at the Doctors Medi-
cal Center.
Two days after the hurri-
cane hit, they began receiv-
ing referrals from the Missis-
sippi Gulf Coast, and Louisi-
ana.
"It was about half and half
from both places," said
Howell. "We averaged 21 to
25 people a day at the shel-
ter, and about 15 to 25.at this
office."
Howell and his staff re-
ceived "a lot of donations"
from The Medicine Shoppe,
and Service Drugs in
DeFuniakSprings. Many
pharmaceutical companies
also responded with medi-
cines and supplies.
Many of the patients
treated were diabetics need-
ing insulin and equipment to
measure their blood sugar.
Also needed were blood pres-
sure medication and medi-
cines for children.
SDepression and anxiety
were also common. COPE
Center assisted, and still of-
fers crisis intervention ser-
vices.
Patients can come to the
center during office hours,
and can be treated evenings

Katrina KO's gas supply


By PATRICK CASEY
The gasoline supply contin-
ues to be a problem, not only
in the Florida Panhandle,
but all the way up the East
Coast to North Carolina.
Hurricane Katrina disrupted
one of the main pipelines
from New Orleans, as well as
wiped out many ports of de-
livery from New Orleans to
Mobile as well as offshore
drilling platforms and refin-
eries. The influx of evacuees
has added to the shortage of
gasoline as people pump and
store gas in worry of the next
big storm or take it out of the
immediate area to help with
the rescue effort.
Diesel gasoline is in such
short supply that area school
districts are worrying about
having enough gas for a five-
day school week. Supplies
are arriving on a week-to-
week basis and industry ana-
lysts are hinting that it may
be November before the gaso-
line market settles down.
Retail prices are in the
range of $2.59 to $2.99
throughout most of the
Southeast. Supply is hard to


come by and moving from the
terminals to the individual
stations almost as quickly as
it is delivered.
Throughout Walton County,
stations are out of gas. Yel-
low and white plastic bags
mark the landscape of a ma-
jority of the stations pumps.
As soon as gas arrives, cars
swarm to top off the tank or
stock up on the supply, cre-
ating a chain reaction that
depletes supply at a much
faster rate.
Donna Steverson, a spokes-
person for Curt Miller Oil in
Bonifay which supplies gaso-
line to several stations
throughout Walton County,
says it may take until late
November to get the market
back to pre-storm levels.
"We're getting some gas from
the Panama City terminal,
and some from as far away
as Jacksonville. The supply
is extremely limited. Our de-
liveries are running nearly
non-stop. Hurricane Ophelia
is also causing some barge
delays to Jacksonville as it
sits offshore of the East
Coast. The diesel supply is


Escape from Katrina


Once upon a time, a 17-
year old girl named Ashley
Carey Woollege lived on a
street called Hillcrest Drive
in the town of Marrero, a
suburb of New Orleans.
That was before Hurricane
Katrina. She doesn't live
anywhere anymore. She and
her family are refugees, just
like thousands of others,
and like so many others,
Katrina took the lives of
family members, separated
afather.from his fa niily and
changed their lives forever.
This is her story...'

Imagine being told to
hurry up get up out of bed,
and pack because, a.hurri-
cane is on its way. That is


what I was told on Satur-
day, August 27, 2005.
I thought that this year
was going to be a very spe-
cial year because I gradu-
ated high school and I was
going to turn eighteen on
September 7. I never real-
ized how truly exceptional
this year was going to be.
We faced Hurricane Kat-
rina. She took away some of
our family, friends, homes,
and even some of our emo-
tions.
My mother, Jeanie, my
sister, Kelly, and I left our
home in New Orleans on
Saturday. My dad, David

extremely low, and being
used mainly for emergency
management vehicles provid-
ing aid."
On Friday, the cost of gas
through Curt Miller Oil was
$2.90, including federal,
state, and local taxes on a
shipment. Retail chains like
Wal-Mart have been able to
stockpile supply to keep the
costs lower, for a while.
The refinery in Pascagoula,
Mississippi was damaged by
Hurricane Katrina and is
still being repaired while a
major pipeline that runs
from New Orleans to New
Jersey has limited electrical
power to push the oil up the
pipeline. Outages of gasoline
are being reported up the
coast as far as North Caroe
lina.
Nearly 95 percent of the
production facilities along
the Gulf Coast were dis-
rupted after Hurricane Kat-
rina. That number accounts
for only 10 percent of the
nation's oil refining capabil-
ity. Product is available but
delivery seems to be the main
issue. The disrupted supply
lines have caused the spike
in outages and higher prices,
plus the delivery from
sources farther away have
added to higher prices.
The Citgo Petroleum termi-
nal in Boggy Bayou supplies
gasoline to 90 percent of the


stations from Escambia to
Bay counties. A delivery of 2
million gallons was expected
over the weekend to refill the
completely empty facility.
On an average day, con-
sumers in Florida use ap-
proximately 23 million gal-
lons of gasoline. In an aver-
age month, fuel suppliers dis-
tribute 750 million gallons in
Florida.
Steverson adds, "If people
will work to conserve trips

FOR SOMETHING ELSE.


and leisure driving the mar-
ket will return to normal
faster. Some people are stock-
piling gas and not realizing
that it does break down over
time. That adds to the short-
ages."
Fear of being without gaso-
line has led to stockpiling by
people, however. The threat
of more storms with over two
months left in the hurricane
season has some people tak-
ing no chances, often at the


detriment to others by filling
massive reserve tanks, "just
in case." That philosophy will
not help price or supply ease
any time soon, but seems to
be the standard reaction to
an American culture that de-
tests the restriction of mobil-
ity.
Hurricane Katrina may be
long gone, but its effects will
be remembered as the theme
for 2005 by motorists, and
historians alike.

Gallagher moves to prevent

insurance adjusters from price gouging


Florida's Chief Financial
Officer Tom Gallagher re-
cently issued an emergency
rule to prevent the victims of
Hurricane Katrina from be-
coming the victims of price
gouging by public insurance
adjusters. In addition to lim-
iting fees, the rule contains
other consumer protections
for victims who may consider
contracting with public ad-
justers.,
Gallagher found the need
to impose the rules after Hur-
ricane Charley hit in August
2004 and there were reports
of adjusters demanding fees
of up to 25 percent.
"Floridians upset after see-


ing their property damaged
by Hurricane Katrina can be
particularly vulnerable to
signing contracts that are un-
fair and possibly unneces-
sary," said Gallagher. "They
need to. strongly consider
whether they need the assis-
tance of a public adjuster, as
any fees will inevitably come
out of their claim settle-
ment."
The new rule caps adjuster
fees at 10 percent of the claim
payment; gives the consumer
14 days to cancel a. contract
made with a public adjuster
without penalty, and prohib-
its public adjusters from de-
manding any up-front pay-


ments or compensation prior
to final settlement of the
claim.
Gallagher also warned Flo-
ridians to make sure they are
dealing with a licensed pub-
lic adjuster. The Division of
Insurance Fraud arrested
seven individuals last year
for acting as public adjusters
without a license.

To check on the license sta-
tus of an adjuster agent or
company, consumers should

nancial Services' Helpline at

ESCAPE

From Pg 8A

Wooledge, had to work, so
he stayed behind. We
thought this was not going
to be a horrible storm. We
thought that Hurricane
Katrina was going to come
and go just like every other
hurricane we had experi-
.enced. We had no clue that
Sshe would take everything.
S We spent five hours Sat-
urday making a two-hour
trip to Picayune, Missis-
sippi. When we got to my
aunt's house, everyone was
scared but we thought we'd
be fine in Mississippi. Afew
hours later, we found out
that the hurricane had
shifted and was headed our
way and had become a cat-
egory five storm. This
meant it was up to
165+mph and was getting
stronger.
S Everyone was sitting on
the edge of the couch, won-
dering where we were going
to go. My cousin.and I made
jokes about how we were
going to tie a rope around
our waist and fly in the
wind just like what we saw
in the movie Twister. The
truth was I was so scared
Sand wanted to leave, but I
tried to be strong for my mom
and family. We knew my dad
Swas still back in New Orleans
and we could not reach him for
another eight hours.
My mom started calling my
Sdad persistently at 5 a.m. on
Sunday morning. We knew
that it was a fierce hurricane
and that my dad was right in
the middle of its path. He did
not answer his phone until 9
a.m.
Once we got in touch with
him and told him how strong
the hurricane really was, he fi-
nally decided to leave. I asked
my mother, "Is he too late?" All
the reporters were saying that
the mayor was shutting down
the roads at 5 p.m. on Sunday.
I tried telling my dad to get out
quick.
He finally left at noon on
Sunday. His employee had
bcten left blind -ithoutar.'y


family because they went to a
birthday party in Slidell, LA.,
and were not able to get back
home to New Orleans. My dad
took his employee as far as
Slidell to meet his family. I
guess you could say my dad
was his guardian angel be-
cause he lived and did not
drown.
My mother, sister and I left
Picayune with the rest of the
family and began the trek to
Florida to stay with some of
our relatives.
My dad made it as far as
Mississippi and was told to
take a detour because he was
not going to be able to get
through; they had already
shut down the interstates and
blocked them off. Dad decided
to go to my aunt's house in
Mississippi the same house
we left because it was right in
the middle of the Katrina's
path. My dad's only choice was
to either stay on the interstate
and maybe drown or go in my
aunt's house and maybe live.
So he decided to go my aunt's
house.
I will never forget when we
arrived in their town. It was
like steeping out of the city
into the country. In fact, that
was exactly what it was. I was
on a farm. Back home I had
been a 'queen' representing
four parishes. I traveled all
over Louisiana to fairs and fes-
tivals, and I was starting as a
freshman in college. I thought
to myself 'I guess this is my
new life.' The life that I re-
membered had been stolen
from me, and I knew it would
never return.
Our family in Florida be-
came our guardian angels, and
the reason we are still alive. I
was so appreciative to have a
bed, food, water, clean clothes,
and a hot bath. They took
all fourteen of us in with-
out blinking an eye or a sec-
ond thought. They were a
blessing from above, in
spite all the losses we had
faced.
I was able to talk to my
dad before I went to bed
and the last thing he told
me was, "If I do not see you
again, I want you to know
that I love you."
From that moment on I
%was angry wihli eer.vouiie


because I was certain my
dad was going to die. I im-
mediately started to cry.
Everything got too hard, too
quick, too fast.
The next morning we got
up early for breakfast and
spent the day watching the
news. We lost contact with
my dad and from that point
on, everything was a guess-
ing game regarding his
safety.
I remember I was playing
a card game with my cous-
ins and my mom ran in and
told us that the westbank
of New Orleans was under
water. That was exactly
where we lived in New Or-
leans. I ran to the TV and
just started to cry. I cried
for hours just thinking
about going home to noth-
ing and never seeing my
dad again. From then on, I
decided to try and call my
dad all the time until I
could reach him.
Monday we watched the
news all day and all I fran-
tically tried to call my dad
and friends, but had no suc-
cess.
Tuesday, my mom de-
cided to get our medicine
filled because my mother
and I are diabetics and did
not know when we were
going to be able to get our
medicine again.
She got lost in Pensacola.
I thought maybe she just
wanted to have a break,
and I really think that is
what she needed. I guess
you could say there are an-
gels all around us, because
my mother had one pre-
scription that had no more
refills on it, which she re-
ally needed and the phar-
macist filled it for her.
When I found out that
there was a Wal-Mart I
tried to make any excuse to
go in order to escape the
news and horror. My cous-
ins and I went to the store
and walked out with almost
four full baskets of food,
water and gas cans.
While we were in one
store, my mom told me she
could not access her messages
on her cell phone. I told her to
give me her phone that I could
get them for her. As soon as I


started to get her messages,
the phone began to ring. We
didn't recognize the number,
but I told my mom to answer
it. It was my DAD! She
thought someone was playing
a prank on her. It had been
three days without any word
from my dad. We both started
to cry out of happiness. He told
us he was fine and all the
neighbors pulled together and
were helping each other. My
mom told him that we were not
going to see him for three
weeks, and asked him if he had
enough food, and he said yes.
We then lost the connection
and we both started to cry.
After the relief of hearing
from my dad, we all decided
that we should try to enjoy a
day at a Pensacola Beach.
We got lost again and de-
cided to stop for lunch at a lo-
cal restaurant, where we sat
and enjoyed the peace and
quiet with out "Breaking News
From CNN." While we were
in the restaurant, some locals
started talking about New Or-
leans and some of the people.
We listened in on what they.
were saying and couldn't help
but be offended at some of their
remarks. At the end our lunch,
my mom went over and asked
them, "Are any of you going to
go help the people in New Or-
leans?" and they said, "No."
She told them we lost our
house in New Orleans. It was
silent when we left the restau-
rant.
Two of my cousins decided to
drive back to their home in
Mississippi to gather some of
their things. We asked them to
get my dad while they were
there. They left on Wednesday
and did rot return until Sat-
urday night.
By Saturday, everyone was
so agitated and exhausted that
my aunt and her children and
my family decided to rent a
hotel room for a while. Four-
teen people in one house was
just too much, so we packed
our things up and went to a
hotel room.
That night, my dad made ii
through our cell phones anc
told us they were on their way
to meet us at the hotel. I al
most could not believe it. I de
cided to wait all night to see
him. He finally arrived at th(


hotel, and I ran out and just
hugged him. He told me he was
so glad to see me and hear my
voice. Then my mom and sis-
ter came out and he held all of
us. When he got in the room
he started telling us some of
the horrible stories that he
witnessed. He told us that in
Mississippi, people were try-
ing to loot and people had no
food or water. He saw many
tornados all over. I saw him
tear up. I knew he had seen
just too much.
We had all been through
too much. We discovered that
members of our family had
perished in that terrible
storm. Even now, it hurts too,
much to talk about it.
On Sunday, we decided to
go to a Red Cross shelter.
When we walked in the door
and went to the registration
table they asked us, "Are you
all refugees?" I had to really
think about it. I realized I
was a refugee. They told us
to take a bag, and take any-
thing we need. I thought to
myself, 'Anything I need, but
I cannot it just wasn't right,'
but all the volunteers told me
take, what I wanted.
I remembered feeling over-
whelmed by gratitude for all


those people who donated
their old clothes and new
supplies. I could not believe
that people just donated all
those wonderful things for
anyone to take.
Everyone kept telling me
that their heart was bleeding
for us. Like I said before,
there are angels all around
us and we just so happen to
come across a shelter full of
them. I decided that from
this day on was not going to
take anything for granted.
At the shelter there was
food, water, clothes, shoes,
sheets, blankets, medicine,
school supplies, counseling,
warm smiles, friendly faces,
and open arms. I never felt
so welcome in all my life. I
just sat around thinking how
lucky I truly was.
As for Hurricane Katrina,
I once heard someone say
there would be no heaven if
there were no hell, meaning
that without the bad, we
would not recognize the good.
Although Hurricane Kat-
rina took away my house, my
jobs, part of my school, and
even some of my family, she
will never take away my faith
in God and his plans for my
family and me.

CROWD GATHERED FOR FOOD AND FUN at Labor Day Pot Luck dinner in Lakeyard. KIDS AT PLAY at Lakeyard Labor Day Pot Luck dinner.

Labor Day potluck dinner welcomes newcomers to DeFuniak Springs


By BRUCE COLLIER
It was a group effort, coor-
dinated by the Womens Club
of DeFuniak Springs, the 4-
H Club of Walton County,
and a host of other public and
private entities.
The evening of Labor Day
was the scene of hundreds of
people, gathering around the
Lakeyard. People cooked,
served, ate and shared with
each other, and with the
scores of evacuees from Hur-
ricane Katrina.
The idea for a potluck was


raised at a meeting last week
held at City Hall. Womens
Club president Diane Wospil
expressed confidence that
the whole thing could be
pulled off in time.
"We're women," she is re-
ported to have said, "we can
do it in two'days."
Wospil stood to the side of
the growing throng, watch-
ing the progress. Groups of
amateur cooks were grilling
hot dogs, burgers, chicken,
and pork. There was even a
pot of gumbo, the contribu-

tion of a Louisiana evacuee.
"There's a long list," says
Wospil, referring to contribu-
tors and sponsors.
A partial list includes
Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Frito-Lay,
Budweiser, Little Debbie,
Colonial Bread, Domino's
Pizza, Ace Hardware, Walton
County Fire Department.
and dozens of church and pri-
vate groups.
"I know I left out some,"
said Wospil, "but we're grate-
ful to them all."
In addition to meat, visi-
tors had their choice of sal-
ads, slices of iced water-
melon, cakes, cookies, pies,
bread, cheese, pickles, and
potato salad.
"We have 500 pounds of
potato salad," said Wospil,
adding "Well, not that much,
but a lot of it."
Moving among the guests
was a troupe of brightly cos-
tumed and made-up clowns.
They are from "C.H.U.M.S.,"
a Christian organization that
mixes ministry with enter-
tainment.
Closer to the lake, a group
of children played games un-
der the supervision of family
and volunteer babysitters.
Among the merrymakers
was Suzanne H. Wilson. Wil-
son is a member of the Wal-
ton County extension faculty
for 4-H youth development,
part of the University of
'Florida.
"We're coordinating activi-
ties with the Red Cross," says
Wilson. "All volunteers are
screened."


Both Wospil and Wilson
note that the response has
been "overwhelming."
"We even had to tell some
people, 'no thanks, not right
now,'" says Wospil.
Nevertheless, the situation
in hurricane-affected areas is
going to continue for some
time, and long-term volun-
teers will be needed.
Behind the serving line, a
volunteer guitarist tunes up
and launches into a spirited
cover of "La Bamba."
The servers were busily
filling plates, and. people
were coming and going, en-
couraged by the hostesses to
help themselves to every-
thing.
Out in the amphitheatre
seats, locals were chatting
among themselves and with
newcomers. Many of the lo-
cals did not partake of the

Voices of the Wandering Wind


x>' Twynette Earley
^ 850-892-4528


Hurricane Katrina has
scattered many lives and left
confusion and chaos in its
wake. It has also blown a
couple of New Orleans musi-
cians to the local area'
Pat and Rosie Maloney
were playing full time at
O'Flaherty's Irish Pub on
Toulouse Street in The
French Quarter until the
storm sent then fleeing east-
ward to safety. They are cur-
rently staying at the home of
Lin Merritt of DeFiniak
Springs.
While they are here; Pam
Stuart, lounge manager at
The Best Western Motel in
DeFuniak Springs, has of-
fered them the chance to play
their music. They will play-
ing Thursday through Satur-
day, from 8 p.m. until mid-
night. "They will put out a
tip jar and have CDs for sale
and hopefully will be able to
make enough money to tide
them over until they can find
some other gigs: We are
happy to have them and I love
having their music to listen
to while I work," said Stuart.
Pat and Rosie are longtime
musicians who play a mix of
Irish traditional songs, folk
songs, and Pat's original mu-
sic. Pat plays the guitar and
sings lead vocals and Rosie
joins him with backing vo-
cals, Irish Whistle and per-
cussion including. the
Bodhran (Irish drum.) They
have toured the country ex-
tensively playing their music
and were based in Arizona
until moving to New Orleans
four months ago to take on
the full-time job at
O'Flaherty's.
"We were pretty ,happy at

O'Flaherty's," says Pat. "It
was the first time in a long
time that we had a house
band that paid well, and in
one of the world's great cities,
in one of the country's best
loved Irish pubs. We were
just settling in, getting to
know the city when Katrina
came calling."
Pat's original songs have
won awards at Arizona, Cali-
fornia, Texas, and Illinois
song writing festivals arid
have been recorded by a half
dozen other regional folk art-
ists.
"My first love is song writ-
ing," said Pat, "But Irish mu-
sic is in my blood. I love the
spirit and emotional intensity
of it."
When Katrina hit, Pat and
Rosie loaded all the belong-
ings they could fit into their
van and headed for Florida
where a longtime friend, Lin
Merritt, offered them refuge
in their home. "We headed
north out of New Orleans on
I-10 but were diverted north
onto 1-59 and up into Ala-
bama before being able to
head south to Florida," said
Rosie, "We left some of our
CDs and some clothes behind
but were able to get our in-
struments and valuables out
with us. We feel very lucky.
We may have lost our jobs but
so many people lost so much
more. We grieve for the city
of New Orleans."
'The Best Western Motel is
located at the corner of I-10
and U.S. 331. Pat and Rosie
will be there starting Thurs-
day, Sept. 15. Pat and Rosie
can be contacted by phone at
928-710-8489 or email:

command in the form of a
parable because He knew
that people could become too
busy to pray. He knew that,
too, some might feel unwor-
thy to pray and to occupy the
time.of the Lord. Perhaps He
gave this parable to teach
persistence in prayer and
encourage the faith of those
who prayed without receiv-
ing a specific answer to
prayers offered in the past.
Sometimes God says. "Yes."
He also says, "No." Again,
"Wait."
Many have thought of
prayer as a one way street in
which they brings their re-
quests to God's throne of
grace. Remember that
prayer in its highest form is
a dialogue between God and
His children. He has Spoken
in the Bible. We are to claim
His promises in prayer.
Remember what He has
said, and we can receive as-
surance that we are His chil-
dren, that we are forgiven,
that we have His abiding
presence, and we have the
peace that passes all under-
standing, even in the midst


of the storms of life, when we
pray.
If we want to prove our
love for the Lord, we should


do so by being obedient to His
command to enter again and
again into the presence of the
Father in prayer. To be dis-


obedient at this point is to
deprive ourselves of the joy
of fellowship with the Sacred
Trinity.


"They were


wonderfilE.

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

Ward Memorial


A Division of Gulf Coast Wilbert, Inc.


When you think of stone monuments, the first thing you probably comes to mind is the quiet seclusion of
a cemetery. Ornate remembrances of a loved one who has passed away, surrounded by a field of green
grass is often a reverential sight to behold.
Yet monument markers are not necessarily for gravesites any longer. Stonework offering for many sites of
commemorative interests are popular everywhere, whether it's for family or business.
So when it comes to stonework for these or similar occasions, be sure to stop by Ward Memorial a divi-
sion of Gulf Coast Wilbert, Inc.
Over the past decade, owners David and Denise Chapman have been helping families and companies
create lasting memories that will stand the test of time. With offices in Crestview, Pensacola, Panama City,
we are now proud to serve you in our new location in DeFuniak Springs.
"We are locally owned and operated," says David, and "we are proud of our work and the people we
serve." The same compassion and professionalism that we display daily in our other locations'will be omni-
present in our office in DeFuniak Springs. "It's a great feeling to be able to help the people of DeFuniak
Springs create something special and unique for their family and businesses."
Ward Memorial offers a wide variety of stonework, including foot markers, upright and flat markers, mau-
soleums, bronze plaques, benches, granite slabs, coping and chipped lots, and much, much, more.
Creating markers for cemetery plots of loved ones that have passed away can be a very intricate and
time consuming process that takes careful consideration from trained professionals.' More and more people
are realizing this, and the trend now is to have families come in and take care of this need long before the
time arises. 'This is something that more and more older couples are coming in and doing," says Office
Manager Bonnie Griffin. 'They spend a lot of time going over the details, almost like selecting their engage-
ment rings years ago. They want everything right and it tums out ot be a very special process."
Ward Memorial specializes in personalizing each monument to an individuals' unique personality. Clients
can either look through a selection, of prior'creations or can bring in their own artwork and ideas.
Monuments can include anything from detailed inscriptions and color engravings to photos embedded into
porcelain and set into stone, protected from the elements.
Another unique idea that is gaining popularity is that of pet markers. These small tributes for beloved fam-
ily pets are Inexpensive and lovingly created to commemorate the life of your family's favorite pet.
Another arena of Ward Memorial are business monuments and bricks with names of donors or fallen war
veterans are becoming more commonplace as well. Bronze plaques, dedicated private monument struc-
tures such as obelisks (that look somewhat like a miniature Washington Monument) and cornerstones ar
great for marking the start or anniversary of a thriving business.
At Ward Memorial, artwork and design, installation of product, engraving, and everything involved in
obtaining that special memorial or marker is provided in one cost estimate. There are no hidden fees or
surprises.
"We understand the meaning of a monument," says Office Administrator Michelle Guidry, "especially
when it comes to end-of-life feeling for a family. It's wonderful to be able to help gain closure and memorial-
ize their loved one." It's more than just stone, it represents who they were and is a tribute that will last
throughout the ages.
If you would like more information, Ward Memorial is located at 1474 State Road 83 North, just north of
Walton Road.
Ward Memorial is open from 7:30 am. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and on Saturdays by appoint-
ment. You can reach Bonnie and Michelle by calling 892-3332. For those who need assistance or traveling
to the south end of the county at the beginning of the week, Anne Lodge can be found on Tuesday from

THE REST OF THE STORY Last week, readers got a
glimpse of a huge catfish from Sandy Creek. It appears that
"The one that did not get away" was first caught by John
Wesley English and Cornti Rushing, of Ponce de Leon, on
Sunday, August 28, at Commander's Landing. This catfish
weighed over 40 pounds and measures 42-inches long, with
a 28-inch girth. John Wesley and Cortni caught this whop-
per on a bush hook using a 7/0 hook. After catching and
weighing the fish, the two decided to release it in Sandy Creek
where they laid him half dead in the water's edge support-
ing him with sticks so he could eventually swim away.


DeFuniak teams victorious over Freeport

Freeport

falls to

Northview

By CHUCK HINSON
There were two key plays
that Northview made that
captured the victory and gave
Freeport its second loss of the
year. One was a 60-yard pass
and another on a 55-yard run
that both resulted in touch-
downs for Northview.
The final score was 21-8,
Northview.
The only score for the Bull-
dogs came when quarterback
Lloyd Anderson sneaked
across the goal line' with a
two-yard run. He went 10-
for-22 in passing and totaled
122 yards for the game, while
having two passes picked off
by Northview.
Josh Thomas carried the
ball 12 times for the Bulldogs
for 51 yards, and' Joey
Siebert had 37 yards on nine
carries. John Rabbe caught
three passes for 43 yards.
On the defense, Skylar
Martin had 10 tackles, two
quarterback sacks and a
forced fumble.,
The Bulldogs travels to Pt.
St. Joe on Friday.



Arnold too

much for

Seahawks

By CHUCK H.NSON
It was a neck-and-neck
game against Arnold tor the
first half of play for the South
Walton Seahawks. But the
second proved to much for
South Walton and Arnold of
Panama City kept the victory
at home with a score of 38-14.
It was a third quarter Ar-
nold surge that tipped the
scales and had the game going
their way. The home team
racked up 21 unanswered
points to seal the win.
All of the South Walton
scoring came in. the second
quarter. Running back Dex-
ter Barefield scored on a
three-yard run and kicked the
extra point.
Fullback Kenzie Clemmons
scored on a four-yard run with
34 seconds remaining in the
second quarter. Barefield
kicked the extra point to tie
the game, just before
halftime.
Once third quarter rolled
around, the Seahawks were
unable to put any more point
on the board.

Paul II of Tallahassee on Fri-
day night.


By PATRICK CASEY
Tallahassee Chiles ran a
precision offense and took ad-
vantage of three Walton
fumbles as the Timberwolves
knocked off the Walton
Braves 34-6.
Chiles scored 27 unan-
swered points and held the
Walton offense to 28 total
yards in the second half as
they improved to 3-0 on the
season.
Walton had chances on the
night to put points on the
board, but turnovers and pen-
alties kept Walton from cash-
ing in most of the evening.
Walton took the opening kick-
off and marched to the Chiles
11-yard line only to have
Devin Gibson fumble ,on a
4th-and-1 play to kill the
drive.
Chiles put the first score of
the night on the board early
in the second quarter as the
Timberwolves marched 89
yards with Charles Shelton
scampering in from 43 yards
out to give Chiles a 7-0.1ead.
Walton responded on the


next possession as they
marched 81 yards for a score
as Xavier Jackson alertly
scooped up a teammate's
fumble and scooted in from 26
yards out to cut the lead to 7-
6.
Chiles followed Walton's
score with another of their
own as Darnell Jordan re-
turned the kickoff to the
Walton 47. Brian Hartsfield
did the damage as he got
loose on a 28-yard run to up
the advantage to 14-6.
Walton stopped another
drive in the final seconds of
the half as Alex Smith inter-
cepted a Justin Wright pass
in the endzone to preserve the
halftime deficit.
It was all Chiles in the sec-
ond half. Wright got the hot
hand as he hit Daniel Bryant
with a 26-yard scoring strike
to up the lead to 21-6. Wright
ended the night with 159
passing yards and made ex-
act throws to four different
receivers to keep Chiles on
the move.
Walton, meanwhile,
couldn't hold on to the ball.
Xavier Jackson lost two
fumbles in the second half as
he had trouble coordinating
with his running backs on
handoffs that proved to be di-
sastrous turnovers.
Walton(2-1) will regroup
this week as the Braves have
their bye week. Walton will
return to action on Septem-
ber 23 at Chipley against the
Tigers.

Notes by Patrick Casey


The Samford University
softball team officially an-
nounced the signing of Jes-
sica Owens to its 2005-06 re-
cruiting class. Owens, a na-
tive of Fort Walton Beach,
Fla., earned First-Team All-
Area honors as a senior and
was a four-year starter on the
softball team and a three-
year starter in basketball.
Men's basketball recruit
Ryan Reid will not enroll at
Florida State this semester
but plans to enroll for the sec-
ond semester according to
Seminole men's basketball
head coach Leonard
Hamilton. Reid, a 6-8, 215-
pound forward, attended
Boyd Anderson High School
in Lauderdale Lakes, Fla.
A pair of home games for
the prestigious Coaches vs.
Cancer Classic kick-off 18
regular season home games,
while trips to Providence and
Miami highlight the 2005-06
University of Florida men's
basketball schedule. A mini-
mum of 24 regular season
games will be televised in
2005-06 with as many as 26
should the Gators advance to
the Coaches vs. Cancer Final
Four in New York.
Margaret Yates had 14 kills
as the Pensacola Junior Col-
lege volleyball team earned
their first win of the season
with a 30-25, 25-30, 30-22,
30-28 Panhandle Conference,
victory. PJC improved to 1-4
overall and 1-0 in conference
play. PJC went 3-1 in a tour-
nament they hosted over the
weekend to improve their
record to 4-5.
The FHSAA suspended a
pair of Chipley linemen and
Pensacola Catholic starting
quarterback Eugene Smith
for their involvement in a
first quarter fight in the Sep-
tember 2 game between the
two schools. Smith missed
Friday's 21-7 loss to Navarre
and will have to sit out the
Crusaders games against
Gulf Breeze and Marianna.
Chipley linemen Zac Harris
and Jermi Johnson will also
miss the next two games,


pending an appeal.
The Walton junior varsity
football team was edged at
home by Chipley 29-22 as the
Braves rallied from a large
deficit only to fall a touch-
down short of a complete
comeback. The JV Braves(0-
2) will host Graceville at 6
p.m. on Thursday, September
15.

The Walton Lady Braves
volleyball team finished as
the runner-up at the Navarre
Invitational tournament over
the weekend. Walton fin-
ished second to the Lady
Raiders for the second time
in the last two weeks as they
finished as runner-up to
Navarre at the Chipley Invi-
tational. Walton defeated
Navarre, Pensacola Chris-
tian, and Pensacola High be-
fore losing to Navarre in the
rematch for the tourney title.
Freeport also participated in
the tourney, but lost to
Pensacola High and Pine For-
est before defeating
Pensacola Christian in the
Fifth Place game.
Freeport is 6-5 on the year,
while Walton is 12-3 overall.

in conjunction with the
county's proposed fiscal year
2006 budget.
As presented on Sept. 6,
that budget totals approxi-
mately $120 million.
About 42 percent of the
current year's budget has
been funded by property or
ad valorem taxes. The
county's finance department
expects ad valorem taxes to
provide 45 or 50 percent of
the total budget amount in
2006.
The amount of atd valorem
taxes coming to the county is
determined by the assessed

"I saw people at their best
and, unfortunately, also at
their worst," said South Wal-
ton.Fire District (SWFD)
Chief Les Hallman.
Hallman recently returned
from his duties as part of an
immediate-response, four-
person Florida command
team for urban search and
rescue and other relief opera-
tions in six Hurricane Kat-
rina-devastated counties in
Mississippi.
In addition to Hallman,
other team members in-
cluded Randall Napoli, direc-
tor of the Florida fire
marshal's office, Dave Casey,
director of the Florida Fire
College, and David
Hallstead, Florida's chief of
domestic security.

Also back from relief ser-
vice in coastal Mississippi as
of last week are SWFD Fire
Marshal Sammy Sanchez
and a group of firefighter/
paramedics from the SWFD
deployed in a two-team
"Strike Force" from the local
area. Sanchez served on a
public information team
working in the storm-rav-
aged area.
"I think it important for
people to know that the state
of Florida sent a tremendous
amount of resources to Mis-
sissippi," Hallman com-
mented. He noted that this
came at a critical time when
resources available from the
federal government and the
state of Mississippi were very
limited.
He explained that one fact
that helped Florida respond
quickly was that the state


value of property within the
county combined with the
millage rate that is set by the
BCC.
One mill equals one dollar
per $1,000 of assessed prop-
erty value. The current mill-
age rate is 5.315 mills.
Citizen comments at the
Sept. 6 public hearing cen-
tered on the large increases
in property taxes that had
resulted from the recent
jump in property evalua-
tions. Property values
countywide for fiscal year
2005 came to a little over $8
billion, a $1.6 billion increase
over 2004, and they are ex-
pected to exceed $12 billion
for the 2006 fiscal year.
Concerns were expressed
that property tax increases
were both discouraging in-
vestment in the county and
forcing retirees and other
residents to sell their homes
and move elsewhere.
Representatives of the
Walton County Taxpayers
Association projected that
county property taxes would
generate $65.4 million in ad


had already "geared up" for
storm response, since Hurri-
cane Katrina had initially
been predicted to, come
ashore at northwest Florida
rather than as it did at the
Louisiana coast location,
with a heavy impact on Mis-
sissippi.
He added that this was a
good opportunity for Florida
relief personnel to put to use
what they had learned the
hard way through, unfortu-
nately, weathering many
hurricanes in the past. It was
also a time to "pay back" in
some measure, assistance
that had come from other ar-
eas in those instances,
Hallman commented.
Visibly saddened by what
he had encountered on the
Mississippi coast, Sanchez
said he had been involved in
the aftermath of a number of
hurricanes but that "this was
something different."
Hallman said he was over-
whelmed by the fact that "al-
most everyone I was dealing
with had lost everything."
One of the few bright spots,
he said, was the endurance
of"the human spirit" against
all odds.
What made dealing with
the human needs and storm
damage even more challeng-
ing for local responders in
Mississippi, Hallman noted,
was that many of them had
to, at least initially, struggle
to save their own lives.
He told of public safety of-
ficials in Waveland. Missis-
sippi who had been literally
washed out of the town's po-
lice station, being forced to
cling to trees and bushes to
avoid being swept away.


valorem taxes due to this
year's property evaluation
increase. They called for a
full one mill reduction, which
would equate to $12.4 mil-
lion.
The commissioners were
reluctant to make the full
mill reduction for fear that
funding for capital projects
would not be sufficient. Dis-
trict 5 Commissioner Cindy
Meadows moved for a three-
fourth-mill reduction, but her
motion died for lack of a sec-
ond.
A motion to reduce the
millage rate by half a mill
was approved. County Com-
mission Chair Ken Pridgen
said the BCC will consider a
further reduction at the
county's second and final
budget hearing, which is
scheduled for Monday, Sept.
26.
The hearing will begin at
5:05 p.m. at will take place
at the Walton County Court-
house in DeFuniak Springs.
These hearings are open to
public attendance and par-
ticipation.


Hallman explained that
his command team was first
tasked with urban search
and rescue in Mississippi's
three southernmost counties
but that their responsibility
was soon enlarged.
"We went to the Stennis
Space Center in the Bay St.
Louis area and established a
Florida command post," he
related. An additional three
counties were subsequently
added to the team's respon-
sibility, as well as the addi-
tional functions of life safety
and relief.
"We built a mini-state of
Florida EOC and deployed
many Florida resources,"
Hallman continued. He was
proud to say that, under the
team's leadership, distribu-
tion of food, water and ice to
victims was initiated within
record time, a 24-hour period.
Hallman explained that
the command team has now
largely demobilized, with
State of Mississippi and fed-
eral manpower and re-
sources having been geared
up to take over most of the
team's previous functions.
The team continues to pro-
vide human resources and
some emergency response
support, he said.

SWFD District Chief John
Fitch headed up the SWFD
personnel relief team, which
included Lieut. Carl
Hohenstein, Sgt. Brian
Hughes, Sgt. Shawn
Hutchins, and Firefighter
Daniel LaTour. Fire suppres-
sion in the storm-affected
area was part of the firefight-
ers' duties, along with medi-
cal assistance and transport.

obtain a Florida scenic high-
way designation for CR 30-A
through a program sponsored
by the Florida Department of
Transportation.
A Florida scenic highway
designation will provide the
common bond that will link
all communities, public
lands, resources, businesses,
and cultural interests to a
shared corridor vision; It will
also elevate the status of the
corridor, increasing the po-
tential for grant funding.
The Scenic 30-A Corridor
Advocacy Group (CAG) has
accomplished much toward
its goal for designation, but
much is yet to be done. More
community involvement is
needed to move this effort for-
ward to gain the designation


of a Florida Scenic Highway.
Volunteers are needed for in-
put concerning topics such as:
a corridor vision, goals, and
protection techniques, as well
as specific concerns such as
transportation, signage,
parking, bicycle/ pedestrian
paths, waste removal, light-
ing and funding issues.

A: According to
F.S. s.61.13016, at the request
of the custodial parent, the
Clerk of Court may suspend a
non-custodial parent's Florida

port payments become delin-
quent. The Clerk's Office can
only request license suspen-
sion on Private Cases, DOR

For the custodial parent to
qualify for this program he or
she must have:
1. An order for child support
in the State of Florida pay-
able in your county;

2. He or she must not be under
contract with the Department
of Revenue;

3. The non-custodial parent
must be at least 15 days de-
linquent; and

4. The non-custodial parent
must have a valid Florida
driver's license.

The custodial parent must pro-
vide the following information
regarding the non-custodial
parent to the Clerk's Office in
order to perform this enforce-
ment action:

LIONS BARBECUE I wouldn't miss Saturday's Sandes-
tin Lions barbecue at Winn- Dixie plaza for anything. Locals
and visitors love this annual event with its choice of pork or
chicken served with all the fixin's of cole slaw, baked.beans
and cold drink for $6.50 in advance or $7 the day of the
event. You will be served from 11 a.m. 2. p.m.
I have always enjoyed the bargains at the Flea Market
that's held in conjunction with the barbecue. Over the years
I have picked up golf clubs, a vintage bottle, books and
lamp. The most expensive item? An incomplete set of golf
clubs with bag for $7. Get there early, it opens at 8 a.m.
I'll be doing my usual take out so I can have lunch while
watching Saturday college football. See you there.

If there was one
time that the state of
Louisiana was able
to forget about the
tragedy, it was this
past weekend when
both LSU and the
Saints had residents
glued to the televi-
sion set. Many say
that it was the best
news many have
had in weeks.

With thousands of
Louisana's homeless and dis-
placed citizens, spread all
over the country, this
weekend's games gave them
at least a few hours of enjoy-
ment. Both No. 3-ranked
LSU and the Saints rallied
from behind and won their
opening football games.
Both teams, displaced be-
cause of Hurricane Katrina,
brought home some joy and a
sense of pride to their home
state. As thousands gathered
in shelters, civic centers, Red
Cross housing and stadiums,
they saw their beloved Ben-
gal Tigers and the pride of
New Orleans, the Saints,
take pride in the game and
win one for their state.
Since the population explo-
sion of Baton Rouge, the No.
5 ranked LSU Tigers had
their opening game moved to
No. 15-ranked Arizona
State's stadium. But, the
fans were not far from their
team as thousands gathered
in the Tiger Den to watch the
boys on big screen televi-
sions.
The LSU student body had
planned various events for
the first home game before
Hurricane Katrina dis-
rupted the entire state. Due
to the fact of overcrowding
throughout the city and the
gymnasiums, locker rooms
and dorms being packed
with refugees, they changed
their direction.
Never underestimate the
LSU fans and alumni and
never take for granted the
strength in numbered
Cajuns. They opened the
stadium and raised hun-
dreds of thousands for the
relief efforts.
Not only did the Louisiana
teams raise money, but so did
the Arizona State stadium.
In all, nearly three million
dollars was raised over the
weekend for the relief effort.
Fans didn't have time to
stop cheering as Sunday
rolled around and the kick-
off for, the New Orleans
Saints.
The Saints took care of
business in the second half of
the game and brought back
to, somewhere in Louisiana,
a 23-20 victory and another
ray of hope in the darkness of
disaster and death in their
state.'
Many of the shelter organ-
izers, volunteers and direc-
tors, said it was one of the
first times in two weeks, that
there has not been any argu-
ing or fights among resi-
dents. It was if they had all
put their differences aside,
forgot about their conditions,
and pulled together to pull


AL t Cltps


for their Louisiana boys.
Throughout the weekend,
every college game that was
aired, was constantly dis-
playing numbers for the Red
Cross and other organiza-
tions that were aiding in the
rescue, recovery and assis-
tance of the Hurricane Ka-
trina victims. Many of the
universities were even do-
nating some of the ticket and
gate money to the various
charities around the nation
that are involved in the Gulf
Coast rebuilding.
Mississippi Gulf Coast
fans could not have been too
pleased with their teams,
such as Southern. Missis-
sippi, who had their entire
stadium and campus de-
stroyed by Hurricane Ka-
trina, and Mississippi State.
Both teams lost heartbreak-
ing games.
But for many fans, the
losses did not cloud there
relief. "At least a few of us
have home we have been
able to go back to in the past
few days and some of us even
have power and a working
television to sit and watch
the game. "said one fan. "For
that we are thankful."
Louisiana residents and
officials, along with the fed-
eral government, have said it
will take months, maybe
years to get the state back in
the shape it once was. There
are years of construction and
rebuilding that lie ahead for
the state.
Still, with the two victo-
ries by the two most beloved
teams in the state, and the
hope of continuing the win-
ning streaks, Louisinana
residents say that their
world will be a little bit
brighter, knowing that thier
two football teams are con-
tinuing to play and dedicat-
ing for the home folks.

Worker's Comp

may decrease



The National Council on
Compensation Insurance has
filed an additional 2.7 percent
decrease this year in pro-
posed workers' compensation
rates, for a total decrease of
7.2 percent. Florida's Chief
Financial Officer Tom
Gallagher spearheaded the
passage of Senate Bill 50A in
2003 that reformed the
state's workers' compensation
system, including tougher
penalties for workers' com-
pensation fraud and pre-
mium evasion. This year's
proposed filing is approved by
the Office of Insurance Regu-
lation, the cumulative drop in
overall rates since 2003 will
total 24.3 percent.
"This, is' exactly why we
fought hard for workers' com-
pensation reform. Lowering
rates ,and cutting costs will
save Florida's small business
men and women an esti-
mated $237 million that can
betterbe' used to continue fu-
eling our state's record eco-
nomic growth," Gallagher
said. "Today's news is a vin-
dication for all of us who be-
lieve 'the best way govern-
ment can grow an economy is
by lowering the cost and bur-
den placed on Florida's small-
businbss owners."
"I haye asked Consumer
Advocate Steve Burgess to
independently review this fil-
ing toseeif even greater sav-
ings fbor employers is pos-
sible." ': !


Celebrate



Constitution

Saturday, September 17,
2005; begins the national cel-
ebration of Constitution
Week.;'.' '
The-weeklong commemo-
ratioiiT6f'America's most im-
portant document is one of
the country's least known of-
ficial observances. The Con-
stitution stands as a testa-
ment to the tenacity 'f
Americans throughout his-
tory to maintain their liber-
ties and freedom, and to en-
sire those unalienable rights
to every American.
The tradition of celebrating
the constitution was started
man'ypyeaars ago by the
Daughters of the American
Revolution (DAR). In 1955,
the DAR petitioned Congress
to set aside September 17-23
annually to be dedicated for
the observance of Constitu-
tion Week. The resolution
was later adopted by the U.S.
Congress and signed into law
on August 2, 1956 by Presi-
dent Dwright D. Eisenhower.
The4aims of the celebration
are '4Ciemphasize citizens
responsibilities for protecting
and defending the Constitu-
tion, preserving it for poster-
ity; inform the people that
the Constitution is the basis
for American great heritage
and the foundation for our
way f life, and encourage the
study of the historical events
which led to the framing of
the Constitution in Septem-
ber 1787.
The' United States of
America functions as a Re-
public, under the Constitu-
tion, which is the oldest docu-
ment ;still in active use that
outlines the self-government
of a people. This landmark
idea .that men had the in-
alienable right as individual
to be free and live their lives
under their own governance
was the impetus of the
American Revolution.
Today, the Constitution
stand as an icon of freedom
for people around the world.
