Growth issues

dominate


Freeport agenda


By BEN GRAFTON
The Freeport City Council
meeting of Sept. 22, in City
Hall opened its business ses-
sion with City Planner
Latilda Henninger ri' ues qut-
ing approval of a small scale.
amendment for a ten-acre
property on Bay Loop road,
which was improved without
a development' order.
Henninger said the city is
trying to bring the develop-
ment into code compliance.
Henninger: also prescntcd
a request to re-zone the prop-
erty from rtiral'residential to
rural village. The council ap-
proved the reque-.t-.
Henninger then pre.i-n I il
a request to change to "indus-
trial" the zoning ofa Freeport.
Industries property pres-
ently zoned low -density resi-
dential but completely sur-,
rounded by properties zoned
industrial. The council ap-
proved the,request,.
The Freeport Residrntial
Planned Development
Project Master Plan. which is
accompanied by a separate
agreement with the develop-
ers that limits construction
to 435 residential units on
about 303 acres, was pre-
sented to the council who ac-
cepted the plan..
Paul Miller, presented a re-
quest for a development or-
der for The Pines, Phase III,
a Planned Development
Project on the east side of
U.S. 331 in Freeport. Miller
said that the project meets
all code requirements. He
noted that the planning
board has recommended ap-
proval for the project. The
council approved issuing the
development order.
Henninger advised the
council that a code' enforce-
ment complaint. about a
property with litter and un-
licensed vehicles aind asked
for council approval for code
enforcement to initiate cor-
rective action. Councilman
Earl King, noting that the
exact description of the prop-
erty was not known, recom-
mended tabling the matter
until that information was
provided.
The council approved ac,
tion to proceed with. annex-
ation of a 70- acre parcel to.
be developed as a marina and
subdivision owned by
LaGrange Bayou Village
LLC.
, Buddy Reynolds, manag-
ing partner for Conerstone


Development Company ad-
dressed the council about a
request for annexation of a
total of 3,500 acres east of
U.S. 331.
The original request for an-
nexation of this acreage was
presented to the council sev-
eral months ago but an error
concerning the ownership of
a right-of -way through the
property delayed action.
Reynolds said that issues,
"...post Katrina.." have
changed a lot things in the
development of Freeport. He
said the development will of-
fer sidewalks, good roads, in-
cluding connectors to the U.S.
331 by-pass, it will protect
wetlands on the site, and con-
sider park components and
education. He reported that
negotiations have already
been conducted with the De-
partment of Transportation
and an agreement has been
worked out for a number of
intersections along the
:y-pass where it adjoins de-
velopment property. After
discussion, during which the
owners i issue was re-
solved, the council approved
the request to continue with
the annexation.
Mayor Mickey Marse an-
nounced that effective Dec.
31, the city will become a par-
ticipant in the Florida State
retirement plan. The existing
alan cannot be rolled into the
state plan.
Employees can exercise an
option to withdraw contribu-
tions to the existing plan or
to leave them invested. The
council approved the change
to the state plan.

Councilman Charlie Sim-
mons reported on meetings.
with DeFuniak Springs Fire
Department personnel and
with Walton County Admin-
istrator Ronnie Bell about
the possible merger of the
Freeport Volunteer Fire De-.
partment with the consoli-
dated county system.
Simmons said he likes the
plan but doesn't think it is
right for ,Freeport at the
present time. He recom-
mended that the city wait a
year and then re-evaluate
the merger proposal.
Simmons also asked for
council approval of his re-

quest to put together a plan
for fire department training
and organization. The coun-
cil approved both recommen-
dations.

Sometime next month, De-
Funiak Springs will have a
new'chief of police. Mike
Adkinson, 35, has secured a
residence in town, and is
coming here with more than
a few plans and projects.
Adkinson is currently serv-
ing as a field training officer
at the Tallahassee Police
Department, a position he
has held for five years.
Adkinson has a bachelor of
science degree in criminology
from Florida State Univer-
sity, and is in progress on a
master's degree. In addition
to his academic accomplish-
ments, Adkinson has logged
over 600 hours in advanced
criminal justice training.
He has lectured at several
Florida universities, is an ad-
junct instructor at the Pat
Thomas Law Enforcement
Academy, and is active in the
American Association ofLaw
Enforcement Trainers.
Adkinson's areas of exper-
tise are ethics and the use of
defensive tactics.
S"I was in Mississippi work-
ing on hurricane relief when
this came up," he said. "I
came here and told the city
what would be my vision of
a police department, what it
should do, and what the pub-


lic should expect from it."
Adkinson also described
several "pet projects" he ex-
pects to implement upon
taking office.
"I want the police to ac-
tively track and monitor sex
offenders," he said. "We have
their information, and I told
the [police department] we
would be taking an active
role."
Another project involves
talking with area schools,
and with'school resource of-
ficers (who themselves work
under the Walton County
Sheriff) to set up procedures
for protecting children in
emergencies.
Adkinson intends to main-
tain an open-door policy with
the community, and to stress
professionalism and ethics.
"I told the city council that
the police department would
have an accredited policy
manual within 60 day; after
I started," he said.
"We have to lay out'the
ground rules," he added.
Adkinson said that he ex-
pects to start between Octo-
ber 10 and 16.
In the meantime, Lt. Den-
nis Ward will continue to
serve as acting police chief.
Ward's last day on the job
will be October 7.


By TAMMY KEARCE
Residents of south Second
Street filled a recent DeFu-
niak Springs City Council
meeting demanding resolu-
tion of an ongoing air qual-
ity issue. The problem began
years ago and what origi-
nally caused it continues to
be a source of debate, but
residents know that the ef-
fects of the noxious sewage
gasses are obvious and intol-
erable.
"With all due respect to
the council," said Tom
Dudley, "if this problem was
in your neighborhood, you
would not accept it."
"I am closest to that area,"
said council member Don
Harrison. "I have witnessed
the smell myself and it is ab-
solutely putrid.We have had
trouble with that line since'
it was installed and it is time
we resolved it."
.During the past three
years the line has been
flushed and cleaned three
times. The last time a video


camera-was sent to gather
images from inside the line
to determine if waste was
settling in low spots and be-
coming septic; results indi-
cated that conditions were
present for that to occur.
Council members agreed
that this matter would take
top priority and be handled
by City Manager Kim
Presnell. "I certainly sympa-
thize with you all and I think
we [the council] agree that
this will be top priority to-
morrow morning," said
Council Member James
Huffman.
"We will fight to get this
problem solved," agreed Har-
rison, "and if we have to put
a new sewer line in to do it, I
am in favor of it."
While residents left with-
out a definite time frame for
the repairs, which they re-
questedd, they were assured
that the problem would now
be aggressively addressed
and given the appropriate
attention.

In the wake of Hurricane
Katrina many people have
been helping, the evacuees
that have been relocated to
local towns and communities.
Large organizations, like the
Red:Cross and Salvation
Army have fulfilled their ex-
pected duties. The smaller or-
ganizations hAve banded to-
gether to offer relief to the
victims.
Since the hurricane, the
DeFuniak Springs Woman's
Club organized a community
wide Labor Day picnic to wel-
come their displaced neigh-
bors from Louisiana and Mis-
sissippi. All the donations
that came in from local busi-
nesses, churches, and private
citizens, who generously do-
nated everything from food to
game prizes, helped make the
day successful. The day af-

ter the picnic, the group's
club house opened its doors
to distribute clothing to the
evacuees. Club member
Paulette Morrison organized
volunteer members so that
the club could stay open ev-
eryday from 1-3 p.m. Cloth-
ing, sodas, and toiletries were
given out abundantly.
As clothing was being given
out monetary donations for


the evacuees begin coming in
to the Women's Club. "I
wanted to make sure that
these donations were used
where and how they were

speaking with the Red Cross
she was informed that pre-

it. Working with: Doctor
James Howell arid Ross
Centanni, Medicine Shoppe
pharamcist, they were able to
set up an account to start
helping individuals get the
necessary medications they
needed.
On Saturday, September
10, Kelley's Grocery, of
Freeport, hosted a day of


games to help raise money for
the victims of Katrina. Also,
the Freeport Fire Depart-
ment had a coin toss and boot
drive to also raise money for
the evacuees. The success of
the fire department and
Kelley's fundraiser was
shown in the generous
checks that Kelley's store
manager, Paul Sivley, and
fire chief, Ray Withrow, pre-


sented to the DeFuniak
Springs Woman's Club to
help them continue the re-
filling of prescriptions.
"It is truly a wonderful
thing that our organizations
are able to join together to
raise money for a common
cause, neighbors helping
neighbors, something I hope
we can continue to do," said
Wospil.

WCC Partnership improves employee's medical coverage


The Walton County Cham-
ber of Commerce and
Syrmetra Life Insurance
Company have teamed up to
make health coverage more
accessible to over 11,000 em-
ployees and their family


members. The partnership is
offering select benefits cover-
age-a limited benefit health
and life insurance policy-to
the chamber's business mem-
bers and their employees.
The policy is a solution for
chamber members seeking to


provide essential medical
benefits to employees who
would otherwise not qualify
for major medical coverage.

"With health care costs at
such a high level, it's difficult
for local businesses to offer


comprehensive medical ben-
efits to all employees," said
Shannon Porath, whose law
firm is a member of the Wal-
ton County Chamber of Com-
merce. "As a member of the

Red Cross still

serving evacuees

in DeFuniak Springs


Since Hurricane Katrina
:struck on August 28, Walton
County citizens have stepped
-up to the plate and offered
,their help and support.
The DeFuniak Springs of-
fice of the Red Cross opened
a Host Shelter on September
.2 at the former National
:Guard Armory in DeFuniak
:Springs. The shelter pro-
vided lodging to up.to 60
people at a time and meals
-to those staying at the shel-
,ter and to individuals living
:with host families in the
:area. Over 300 meals a day
were served in the first two
:weeks the shelter was open.
*Red Cross Shelter Manager
;Ted Brown says they are
:feeding about 30 40 people
:a day.
SBrown said over 1,700 ser-
vice forms were filled out at
the center, some with up to
10 individuals listed on each
form. Many of these individu-
als are being housed in the
,area or were passing through
:to other host sites. Most of
.the evacuees in the south
'Walton area are using the
Red Cross center in Destin
:and are not included in these
figures.
After the first two weeks of
operation, the host shelter
was closed because there was
no longer a need for shelter.
The armory was then con-
verted into a service center
where evacuees could obtain
.information and services
from several agencies.
SThe Red Cross managed
the center. Agencies such as
FEMA, JobsPlus, COPE, the
Florida Department of Chil-
dren and Family Services,
area church and civic orga-
'nizations, including a group
9If volunteers called Walton
Cares, were all providing ser-
vices to the evacuees. The
Chautauqua Cyber Club
loaned the shelter eight com-
puters, which according to
'Brown have been an invalu-
able tool. People have been
able to access FEMA and
other help organizations,
contact loved ones and post
messages via the Internet.
: Many of the evacuees who
used the center in the first
days following the storm


have gotten jobs, found hous-
ing, registered their children
in local schools and estab-
lished somewhat of a normal
routine. They no longer need
daily services. Others have
returned closer to home in
Mississippi and Louisiana.
Even though things have
slowed, Brown says the Red
Cross is not closing the cen-
ter. They are open from 9
a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday
through Friday. The Red
Cross is still feeding about 30
people three meals a day, pro-
viding lodging, financial as-
sistance and referrals to
other agencies. FEMA and
JobsPlus are still on site with
C.O.P.E. and Department of
Children and Family Ser-
vices on call. The computers
and Internet service are still
available, as well as a Red
Cross Disaster Nurse. The
Walton County Health De-
partment is giving necessary
inoculations to evacuees re-
turning to the areas hardest
hit by the storm.
The Red Cross works in co-
operation with Caring and
Sharing to provide clothing
and household goods to the
evacuees at no charge. Any-
one wishing to donate clean
used clothing can take them
to Caring and Sharing on
Highway 83 North in DeFu-
niak Springs.
Most of the evacuees needs
are being met at this time by
the Red Cross, JobsPlus and
other agencies. Those who
have been housed tempo-
rarily in hotels looking for
shelter elsewhere.
Evacuees passing through
the area going home also
need gas cards. Walton Cares
is helping with many of these
needs, but there always
seems to be a need for more
gas cards.
Several calls have been re-
ceived from people on the
weekend looking for help
with hotel rooms in the south
Walton area.
Despite some rumors to the
contrary, Brown said, "The
Red Cross will be at the cen-
ter as long as we are needed
and the city of DeFuniak
Springs and Walton County
gives us their support."


Some participant in the bi-
cycle rodeo at Countryside
Market Place will be the win-
ner of a new bicycle. Just call

ister to participate in the bi-
cycle rodeo to be conducted by
the DeFuniak Springs Police
Department and the Walton
County Sheriff's Depart-

schoolers to high school se-
niors may enter, and the

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


PERSONAL COMMENTS


Editor's Comment


By RONKELLEY


Packing our bags


Moving day has finally arrived. Some of us thought it never
would, but it has and with it has come a whole new set of
conundrums. We're moving to our new offices, just a stone's
throw away, next to the Public Defender's office on Baldwin
Avenue. That's not so far as the crow flies, but it's light years
away from where we are now.
For as long as I can remember, the DeFuniak Herald of-
fice has been at its present location at 676 Baldwin Avenue.
Lifelong residents may remember that The Breeze was once
a separate paper, which was later bought out and combined
with the Herald. Originally, The Breeze was also located in
DeFuniak Springs, although I've not yet discovered exactly
where, and it was the Woodham Family who moved the of-
fice south of the Choctawhatchee Bay and called it The Beach
Breeze.
The two papers are combined so that south Walton read-
ers get the Herald for free and north Walton readers get the'
Breeze free. Most folks have discovered that it's important
to read both, because what happens in one area almost al-
ways affects the other.
But that's an editorial for another day.
Today I am sitting in a cramped, unfinished office clut-
tered with the detritus that always accumulates around
newspaper offices old editions and articles that were clipped
\ and saved for reasons that are now lost, photographs, loose
papers and submissions of every kind. There is a sea of post-
it notes, paper clips and red-ink pens. Close at hand is my
treasured Oxford Universal Dictionary and my copy of the
bible of modern newspapers, The Associated Press Stylebook.
As I look around, I do a mental inventory of what I will
take with me and what things I hope to leave behind. As
much as anyone, I'll be thrilled to be in our new office, which




Dear Editor,

The devastation wrought by natural disasters affects so
many innocent lives. Hurricane Katrina claimed not only
the lives of a tragic number of human victims and countless
dogs, cats, and other terrified companion animals who were
orphaned or abandoned, but also the lives of thousands of
fish, sharks, birds, and other animals at the Audubon
Aquarium of the Americas and the Audubon Zoo in New
Orleans.
Animals trapped in zoos and aquariums when catastro-
,phe strikes are often unable to'escape or fend for themselves.
'Even with advance notice, it would be impossible to evacu-
ate the many dangerous and large animals forced to live in
captivity. Animals fre better in their natural environments.
For more inform. aWtn on helping animals affected by Hur-
ricane Katrina, please see HelpingAnimals.com.

Sincerely,
Lisa Wathne

Treatment of Animals

has been remodeled from top to bottom. The furnishings,
phones and computers will be new and did I mention space?
We could fit the present office into the new one twice or
maybe three times, considering that we will have an up-
stairs, too.
Yet, despite all of this, I have to admit that it will surely
seem strange for the Herald to occupy any other space. I
know it will take time for everyone to find us, even though
we're only moving one block over. For a long time, people
will go to the old office, wiggle the door knob and peer in-
side at the dark rooms and wonder what happened.
I may be one of those people, standing there peering in at
the local repository for a million stories, more than a few
tall tales and a thousand faded photographs. From inside
that office, we have seen generations of history, learned of
births and deaths, weddings and anniversaries, grand open-
ings and going-out-of-business sales, read news of commis-
sioners and councilmen, accidents and arrest reports. In
short, we have seen our lives and our community reflected
back at us from the pages of our weekly newspaper.
I can walk the streets of DeFuniak Springs and see
Lighfoot's Drug Store, Beasley's, Wise Department Store,
Fisher Hardware, Danley Furniture, Christos, Creel Ford,
First National Bank, Allison's Grocery, Cawthon State Bank,
Ritz Theatre, The Dreamland Motel, Haye's Playhouse, The
Jolly Spot, Western Auto and Andrews T.V. Repair. I can
still see them all, but only if I close my eyes. They're all
gone now, passed into memory. Their storefronts now house
other stores, other businesses.
Things change. In fact; the only thing that never changes
is the fact that everything changes. Not all change is good,
of course, but in our case, it is welcome news (pun intended).
At 117 years, the DeFuniak Herald-Beach Breeze is now
the oldest continuing business in Walton County. In this
first decade of a new millennium, we are still growing, ex-
panding, improving and changing.
Thank you, Faithful Reader, for making the journey with
us. It seems appropriate to close with a quote from one of
my favorite comic strips, Calvin and Hobbs, which has also
'faded into history.
"Know what's weird?" said Calvin. "Day by day, nothing
seems to change, but pretty soon, everything's different."
Hmm, not bad for a comic strip character.

It is sad when the city attorney, Clayton Adkinson, can
get his nephew through the City Council for them to ap-
prove his selection. I have nothing personal toward the
young man, Mike Adkinson, but he is a resident of Talla-
hassee, Florida. We have some very qualified law enforce-
ment officers in DeFuniak Springs that would have made
excellent police chiefs.

LET3TERTOTHEIT


Editor,
I am a displaced citizen to the DeFuniak area from Navarre
as a result of Hurricane Ivan that destroyed our home last
year.
As soon as I realized the devastation of Hurricane Katrina
and saw the shelter open at the local National Guard Ar-
mory for the hurricane evacuees, I went to the shelter and
volunteered my services. I signed a volunteer sheet and
waited for a call. While I was awaiting the call locally I went
on the Internet and volunteered for the American Red Cross.
At the end of the application I received a confirmation and
told that the American Red Cross in Crestview would be con-
tacting me and advising me of further information about my
help.
Still awaiting a call, several meetings took place locally
and I was advised by one of the attendants that there was
going to be Red Cross training occurring at the National
Guard Armory on the next Saturday. Strictly reacting on
rumor, I then went to the Armory and therefore was able to
get in on the initial training class.
I then told the Red Cross representatives that I was ready,
willing and able to be of service, told them my credentials,
and was still not enthusiastically welcomed or wanted.
The following Monday, I began offering my services at the
National Guard Armory as an American Red Cross volun-
teer. I worked from open until 6 p.m. Monday through Fri-
day, as that was my hours of availability. During the first
week of my service there was much tension, friction, and
confusion, but not from the displaced evacuees showing up
in DeFuniak Springs looking to us for comfort, instead from
the volunteers working at the shelter.
Grant it, the evacuees were and are in distress, their emo-
tions are high, but the volunteers on the other hand have no
excuse. They are supposed to be in good spirits and there to
comfort, and assist these people in a compassionate man-
ner. Quite the contrary has been occurring. There has been
a local battle between the Hatfield's and McCoy's involving
The American Red Cross and a newly formed local organiza-
tion called Walton Cares. Does Walton really care? What in
the world is the real agenda here?
I tried to keep a positive attitude and continue the service
that I had to offer assisting these people in a desperate time
of need, until the controversy began to reflect on me, the
evacuees began to experience the negativity. The Red Cross
services of paperwork and processing have pulled out and
moved to Pensacola, the food and supplies donated to the
shelter to be given away have been stashed away and are
being rationed, and the attitudes of the volunteers are be-
coming hostile!
I am very uninterested in being involved in controversy,
as are the Katrina evacuees. The headlines, the attitudes
and actions at the shelter have made it very apparent that
there are underlying issues and agendas. What in the world
are they?
I will continue to pursue my interest in volunteering for
the American Red Cross elsewhere, because locally there
seems to be no real need or interest in my services even
though nationally they are still needing 40,000 volunteers?!

Editor:
I agree with what Amos Benton Hester III said in his let-
ter to the Herald-Breeze of Sept. 1, 2005. His basic stand
was that taxes should not be reduced and the reason for his
stand was that infrastructure needs are too great for a tax
reduction at this time.
Plainly and simply stated, roads can't be paved and ser-
vices provided on empty pockets.
Isn't the new sheriff's office yet to be built? Isn't the ani-
mal control facility yet to be erected?
I know urban dwellers are blissfully unconcerned about
paving rural roads in north Walton County. They rarely
travel where the dust rolls in dry weather and mud andL
clay splatters and splash in wet weather. Those roads, rut-
ted by run-offs rain, beat and bang one's vehicle to an early
grave or the junkyard. Those roads aren't new. Most have
been here nearly as long as the county has existed, and they'
are still dirt, and they still dump tons of sand and silt into:
nearby creeks.
I really can't summon up a lot of sympathy for owners of
"second homes". If they are wealthy enough to own a sec-
ond home, taxes shouldn't bother them a whole lot.
And what, pray tell, is an affordable house? Affordable to
whom? "Affordable" is a salesman's term and tells one noth-
ing of value.
Low-income housing is part and parcel of north Walton.
It has been around since pioneer days and no level of gov-
ernment helped the owner drive one nail nor cut one log.
Housing in my opinion, is not a public function because it
is available to, and serves only a portion of the public.
I suspect low-income housing, properly translated, means
housing that serves the labor needs of the resort-oriented
businesses. That is not a pubic function. It is a business
function and businesses should solve the problem.

Editor,
The United Fire District and its preceding departments
have served the areas of Woodlawn and Pleasant Ridge since
their existence. The United Fire District Board of Commis:
sioners, the fire chief and the volunteer fire fighters would
like to continue to serve this district as an independent spe+
cial fire protection district. To accomplish this, it is vital to
have the support of the communities ofWoodlawn and Pleas-
ant Ridge in the form of a signature on a petition which is
available at the Woodlawn Fire Station or a phone call to
Chief Nash at 892-3800.
As of this date, there is a full time fire chief, 11 volunteer
fire fighters, two new class A pumpers and one older class A
pumper for back up.
Please visit during the open house the middle week of Oc-
tober, dates and events to be posted at each fire station.

Editor,
I am a diabetic and have blood tests every three months.
On Wednesday afternoon, I called Healthmark to see if
they had received the orders for the blood work and they
had. I went there Thursday at 7:55 a.m. but they couldn't
find the orders. At 8:10, they hadn't found them waiting
for a "Jane Doe" to come in at 8:20, she came in, but wasI
now gone for coffee. They were advised by the front desk
that a patient had been waiting for several minutes. At 8:30
she wasn't back yet. At 8:40 she still wasn't back then I
left (disgusted),
What's wrong with this picture? "I don't care I'll do it
when I'm ready attitude." This attitude, (among other
things) is what caused the bad name for this hospital. No
one wants to go there because of that.
We have a new hospital staffed with employees from the
old hospital with the same old habits. Do they need a change

Editor:
This is a letter of thanks and appreciation to all of the
personnel of Delta Health Care Center at, 138 Sandestin
Lane.
In August of 2000, I became a resident along with my wife
in this facility. My wife with dementia and me with pneu-
monia and strep disease, after a stay in the hospital. My
wife died in November of 2004. I moved into the assisted
living section a little later and I am still here.
May I say here that I know nothing about other centers,
but since I have been here, I have been surprised at \. hat I
have experienced. That is the love and caring that the em-
ployees reflect toward the residents. Yes, I know they get
paid for what they do, but not for their attitude. Money, can't
buy that! From Matt Triplett, the administrator, dov.n,. all
of his employees reflect the fact that all the residents re-
ceive their love and attention.
Approximately one hundred employees broken dov. n into
three shifts care for the residents. This includes everything
from checking the residents while theysleep to hand feed-
ing them at the table. I have watched them hand feeding
the residents and it reminds me of an old statement. "You
are helpless when you are born and when you get old. How
very true. Some of the residents will strike back at the
caregiver, but I have never seen any employee ret liate I
had some experience in care giving with my wife and I knov.
what is required of the caregiver. The book "The Noteboo:'k"
was clear on this fact that it takes a whole lot of patience to
do that job.
In the 25th chapter of the book of Matthew, Jesus tate
what will happen when he separates the sheep from the
goats. He also states what he uses for this separation Read
this chapter and you will understand.
I watched the reports from New Orleans where people
were left and died in nursing homes. In my five year- here,
I have gone through four storm seasons. People here go on
24 hour shifts or longer and were ready to move e. ei .,yone
and everything at anytime. They have moved before and
will again because we live on the Gulf Coast and believe me
it is no easy feat.
Sometime when you have a moment stop by and siit us
All of the people will welcome you and some day in th e fu-
ture you might take a vacation here. When you come you
can see in action the love, compassion and care tlhat the
staff reflect. You might even go away with a tear in voui
eye.

Blue Creek

Veterans

Park

seeks

participants

The Blue Creek Veterans
Park is located in Ponce de
Leon on the exact spot where
the old PdL School was lo-
cated. This park was devel-
oped by a group of local vet-
erans to memorialize all vet-
erans.
If a person has served, or is
now serving, they may
qualify to purchase a memo-
rial brick. So far, the local
vets have constructed ten
pedestals around the pen-
tagonal shaped main plaza.
Each pedestal can accommo-
date thirty-five bricks. As of
now they have six pedestals
filled. One of these are for
Civil War veterans.
Veterans are encouraged to
visit the park and pick up an
brick application, or call 850-
836-5209 and one will be
mailed. On Jan 1, 2006 the
price will increase.

Westward help:


Walton County emergency teams lend a hand



to Msissisppi Hurricane Katrina victims


By BRUCE COLLIER
Responding to requests for
assistance from Mississippi
agencies, Walton County
Fire and Rescue teams took
the road west to Gulfport,
Bay Saint Louis, Pass Chris-
tian, Lucedale and other Mis-
sissippi locations to render
aid and comfort to the vic-
tims of Hurricane Katrina in
those areas.
Walton County Fire Chief
Eddie Rivers, along with six
firefighters and paramedics,
sat down and shared their
experiences last week at the
Emergency Operations Cen-
ter in DeFuniak Springs.
Present with their chief
were firefighter/paramedics
RobertDaniel,Johnny
Padgett, and Lynn Eubanks,
and paramedics Jonathon
Davis, Melissa Brown, and
Judy Allison.
Not present, but
partipants in the effort, were
Jerome Szczekot, Jimmy
Carter, and Edward Paul.
"Requests are handed to
the emergency support func-
tions of the state EOC," said
Rivers. "In this case, Walton
County sent two ambulances
and five [paramedics]."
Walton County lies in the
Florida Fire Chiefs Associa-
tion (FFCA) Region One.
Agencies in that region each
dispatched one engine with
four firefighters to the area.
"By the time we got to Mis-
sissippi, it was up to 150
rigs," added paramedic Mel-
issa Brown.
Rivers said zhat this pro-
cedure has .been imple-
mented to avoid
"freelancing."
"People just start showing
up," said Rivers. "Pick a
state, and a small fire com-
pany sees all this destruc-
tion, and they want to go and
help. They put three or four
guys on a fire engine and
send them to New Orleans
or Mississippi. It has to be an
organized process."
Proper procedure calls for
"staging areas," with com-
mand centers set up to dis-
patch personnel to areas as
needed.
In this case, the
firefighters set up operations
in Gulport at Fire Station 11.
"Our main thing was to go
in and relieve the personnel
ofGulfport's fire department.
They had been there the
whole time. Some of them
had lost everything," said
firefighter Johnny Padgett.
Accompanied by local fire-
fighters, Padgett and his as-
sociates ran fire calls, medi-
cal calls, and smoke investi-
gations. Above all, they tried
to ease the locals' burden of
work.
In the overwhelming
amount of work to be done,
some local personnel had
worked themselves to ex-
haustion, missing rest, food,
and water.
Resources were stretched,
and supplies had to be ra-
tioned. "We were handing out
one or two MREs to a fam-
ily," said Padgett.
"The people were so glad to
see us, they thought they had
been forgotten," he said.
"It was just amazing," said
Jonathon Davis. "They were
just so happy to see us."
Despite short supplies,
there was no shortage of gen-
erosity toward the rescue
workers.
Paramedic Melissa Brown
recalled being offered food


and water by local families.
"We'd ask them if they
needed food or water, and
they'd.say 'do you need wa-
ter, are you hungry?'"
Brown laughed, "I'd say
'no, ma'am, we're here for
you."
"They'd say,'come back to-
night, we're cooking up the
freezer,'" added paramedic
Judy Allison.
Aside from a few rumors of
looting, none reported having
seen any looting.
"There was a blue tarp,
reading 'you loot, we shoot,'
that spanned the whole
length of this mobile home
in the Biloxi River area," said
Padgett.
Brown and Allison told the
story of an old woman, who
came to a shelter and said,
"I need to hit you."
"She had heard [reports]
that people were supposed to
be beating up their help,"
said Brown. "She whacked
me with her tennis shoe, so I
could go home and say that
I'd been beat."
The paramedics had a dif-
ferent experience than that
of the firefighters, said
Brown.
"We were based out of
Stennis [ Space Center], and
we'd go down to Waveland
and Bay Saint Louis to re-
ceive our assignments."
"They had a private am-
bulance service there, which
was covering emergency
calls. All they requested
was for us to do their long-
distance transfers.".
Working out of a parking
lot, the paramedics loaded
up with supplies and cruised
the Waveland/Bay Saint
Louis area, offering help to
residents.
Allison said that people
would gather near the few
remaining structures with
food, water, and supplies and
cook out.
"It was a wonderful expe-
rience of a community taking
care of community," said
Brown.
Fuel was a precious com-
modity, with the remaining
one or two open stations
guarded by Florida Highway
Patrol. Lines were up to
three miles long.
Padgett said, "we'd ask
people, 'do you need food and
water?' and they'd say 'no,'
but do you have gas?"'
Brown said that the pri-
vate ambulance service re-
peatedly refused their offers
of help. "It was frustrating."
"In the end, we were told
we weren't needed," she said.
"So we went home."
All agree that the citizens
were appreciative, and that
their services were needed.
The most common prob-
lems to treat were exhaus-
tion, dehydration, and medi-
cines for blood pressure and
diabetes.,
Most minor injuries had to
be treated in the field, since
hospitals were accepting only
seriously or critically -in-
jured patients.
Along with the physical ef-
fects, natural disasters pro-
duce a great deal of mental
anguish.
"There's more to heal than
the body," said Brown.
Firefighter Robert Daniel
described a mobile home-
owner mowing his lawn and
clearing away until after
dark.
"The whole thing to their"
recovery is to get things back


WALTON COUNTY TO THE RESCUE, (left to right) Lynn Eubanks, Jonathon Davis, Judy Allison, Melissa Brown,
Johnny Padgett, and Robert Daniel, at EOC.


KATRINA'S DEVASTATION of Pass Christian Church, which had survived Camille.


to normal as soon as pos-
sible," he said.
The physical devastation
was chilling. Nearly every
power pole was down, and
police had to be posted at in-
tersections.
Darkness brought added
problems, as drivers tried to
negotiate unfamiliar neigh-
borhoods, all the while avoid-
ing downed power lines.
Local government, police,
and fire department build-
ings suffered immense wind
and water damage. In some
cases, police and fire stations
lost entire fleets of vehicles.
In Pass Christian, the
firefighters reported seeing
entire subdivisions of homes
literally scraped off their
slabs.
An old church that had sur-
vived Hurricane Camille in
the 1960s w'as blown apart,
leaving only the roof and part
of the frame.
Both teams were in Missis-
sippi a total of eight days, as
part of their normal duty ro-
tation. At the end of that
time, resources had been se-
cured from other parts of the
country, as far away as
Pennsylvania.
In that time, the Walton
County team fought fires,
cleared mountains of wreck-
age, fueled vehicles and gen-
erators, treated Wounds, and
handed out food, water,'and
medicine.
They also met a dog that
had wandered from his New
Orleans home all the way to
Bay Saint Louis., and four
restless firefighters from
Louisiana's Saint Bernard
Parish. The men had walked
from there to Mississippi.
Both teams welcomed this
opportunity to repay fellow


Gulf Coasters for their past
services here, during Opal,
Ivan, and Dennis.
Such disasters as Katrina
prove a harsh but valuable
classroom, a chance for emer-
gency. -workers: to-become


better prepared for all-too-
possible future storms.
Rivers said that Florida
has learned a great deal, and
that many improvements in
emergency response have
been made since Hurricane


Andrew.
"We've had a lot of practice
at using emergency plans in
real time," he said.
"I'm very proud of Walton
County, how organized and
prepared we are."

Newly-elected Open Door
Community Club President
Barbara McLellan com-
menced the first meeting of
the silver anniversary year
for the club on Thursday,
Sept. 8, 2005. Members were
eager to share personal sto-
ries and happenings since
the club recessed for the sum-
mer in May.
Treasurer Susan Chaney,
was kept very busy writing
receipts, as members paid
their yearly dues of $9 (one
dollar per month.) Dues are
pro-rated at $1 per month
depending on which month a
new member joins the group.
Monies collected throughout
the year are donated to the
group's annual agency ben-
eficiaiies. Members voted
during this initial meeting
for the groups that they
wanted the yearly donations
given to at the May, 2006
meeting. After nominations
from the floor, the group
voted that the beneficiaries
for the 2005-2006 year would
be the C.A.R.E Program and
Special Olympics.
McLellan thanked Kathy
Doering and her husband,
Bud, for compiling and hav-
ing the 2005-2006 member
directories ready for this first
meeting of the year.
Member Joyce Campbell
has just completed a com-
plete audit of the Club's fi-
nances and there were zero
discrepancies due to the dili-
gence of treasurer Susan


Chaney.
During the recent hurri-
cane evacuations, Walton
County citizens have been
extremely generous in.dona-
tions of money and material
goods to assist the evacuees.
Some of the members of our
Open Door Community have
gone above and beyond the
call of duty by opening their
homes to those who have
been displaced by the hurri-
canes. A wonderful and gra-
cious thank you goes out to
our members Jean Fazekas,
Shirley Sandoski and Shirley
Ziglar, who all provided shel-
ter in their homes to families
that escaped from the rav-
ages of the hurricanes.
Ruth Bjorkman, official
photographer and historian
of the club's scrapbook, made
a motion that this year's
scrapbook be dedicated in
memory of two beloved mem-
bers, Dottie Merrifield and
Alyce Schultz, both of whom
passed away this year. The
motion passed unanimously.
The next meeting of the
Open Door Community Club
will be on Thursday, Oct. 13,
2005 at 11 a.m. at the Cross-
roads Best Western Hotel.
The club is open to all women
of Walton County and meets
the second Thursday of each
month at the 11 a.m.
For information, attend
one of the meetings or write

Club, P.O. Box 52, Argyle, FL

"Muscling in on Murder" mystery

dinner theater from Act4Murder


DEADLY TRIANGLE, left to right: Bruce Culpepper,
Michelle Dolgoff, Joe Chase, in "Muscling in on Murder."


S Pleasant Grove Baptist
Church will be holding re-
Svival services Oct. 2 through
SOct. 6.
Reverend Gary Cadwell
will be our revival speaker.
Sunday services will be 11


a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday -
Thursday services will be at
7 p.m.
A nursery will be available.
The church is located at the
intersection of Hwy.1883 E.
& 183B. Everyone is invited.


By BRUCE COLLIER
The French Quarter Grille
in Niceville was the site of
dinner and death last Satur-
day evening. Fprt Walton
Beach theater entrepreneur
Paula Hilton presented her
original script, "Muscling in
on Murder."
The play is a comic mys-
tery, written by Hilton and
performed by her acting
company, Act4Murder.
Hilton and her actors
maintain a repertoire of
about seven performance-
ready plays at any given
time. The company works in
conjunction with area restau-
rants, which furnish the food.
Between courses, Hilton and
company stage a whodunit.
The audience is encour-
aged to solve the mystery,
with prizes, awarded to the


table that solves the crime.
"Muscling in on Murder""
features a cast of seven char-
acters. The story concerns
the intrigues among a group
of fitness "professionals,"
seeking to market a new
wonder weight-loss tool, the
Bycle Cycle. One of the group
dies, onstage, somewhere be-
tween the salad and the des-
sert. The audience is invited
to participate in detecting the
killer.
Over coffee, the obligatory
"I'm sure you're all wonder-
ing why I called you here"
scene takes place, and the
perpetrator is bagged before
the check arrives.
As for the play, it's just
plain silly, with lightweight
plot, over-the-top acting, and
more puns and rhymes than
you can shake a butter knife
at.
For all that, Hilton directs
her actors to give the audi-
ence its money's worth, and
they do.

The Lord's Prayer -


what is it?


By Dr. Robert M. Jaye

Matthew 6:6 in part reads,
"But thou, when thou
prayest, enter into thy closet,
and ...pray to Thy Father."
What te call The Lord's
Prayer is a pattern for prayer.
It contains the principles to
guide the Christian's prayer
life. The prayer is found in
Matthew 6:9-13.
The Lord's Prayer falls into


a logical outline. It has an in-
troduction "Our Father
which art in heaven." Prayer
is not to be self-centered. All
God's people can pray. He is
"Our Father," not just "My
Father."

There are petitions con-
cerning God. "Hallowed be
Thy name." God's name is
hallowed and holy. We pray
that God's name, already hal-


lowed and holy, may be re-
garded for what it is. "Thy
kingdom come. Thy will be
done." The kingdom comes
into our lives as the will of
God is done through us. We
ask that God become the sov-
ereign Ruler of our lives. "In
earth as it is in heaven." We
ask that God's will be done in
our lives as perfectly as it is
being done in all the activi-
ties of heaven.
There are petitions con-
cerning people. "Give us this
day our daily bread." We do
not pray for our daily "cake";
we ask only for the basic ne-
cessities of life. "Forgive us
our debts as we forgive our
debtors." If we harbor in our
hearts hatred for a brother or
sister, we cannot pray aright.
We must have a forgiving
spirit as we ask God to for-
give our debt of sin. "Lead us
not into temptation." When
trying times come, we pray
that God will lead us around
them. We do not pray that
god will remove temptation
from us. Our prayer is that
God will deliver us from the


foolishness of the Wicked
One.
The Lord's Prayer teaches


us that all our needs are met of sin. The future protection

beat South Walton, 27-25, 25-17, 25-23.


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves were
stopped in Chipley territory
on a 4th-and-4 with just over
a minute remaining in the
game as the Tigers turned
back the Braves 21-20. The
victory was the third in a row
by the Tigers, who have won
the last three regular season
meetings by a single point
each.
Walton rallied from a 21-6
deficit in the third quarter as
Josh Nettles led the Walton
attack by scoring three touch-
downs on the night. Nettles,
who had a 50-yard run on
Walton's opening possession
to give Walton a 6-0 lead,
added a pair of scoring runs
from a yard out to get Walton
within a point with 6:10 to
play in the game. With
Walton's long-snapper, Jack-
son Fayne, injured on the
touchdown run by Nettles,
Coach Frank Sorrells elected
to go for the two-point conver-
sion instead of risking a bad
snap on the point after touch-
down. Xavier Jackson at-
tempted to run in the two-
point conversion only to be
knocked off-balance by the
Tigers short of the goalline.
Walton stopped Chipley on
the Tigers next possession
and got the ball back after a
punt at the Walton 31-yard
line. Walton marched to the
Tigers 36-yard line only to be


held by the Tigers on the next
set of downs. Walton tried a
reverse on 4th-and-4 only to
see the Tigers pull down
wideout Alex Smith for a yard
loss. The Tigers ran out the
final 1:06 to claim their third
straight win over Walton.
Walton was lucky to be
within a point after a rough
first half of play. The Tigers
Josh Potter raced 67 yards for
a score a play after Nettles
had given Walton a 6-0 lead.
Brandon Sikora's extra point
gave Chipley a 7-6 lead after
Walton's Isarael Baza had his
extra point go wide left.
Walton's first possession of
the second quarter saw Josh
Nettles fumble on the option
and Chipley linebacker
Shane Kriser scoop up the
loose football and race 38
yards for a 14-6 halftime lead.
The Tigers took the second
half kickoff and upped the
advantage to 21-6 on an 11-
yard scoring run from Joe
Green.
Walton had two costly
fumbles in the first half that
stopped a Braves drive and
gave the Tigers a defensive
touchdown. An exhausted
Josh Nettles led the Walton
offense with 185 rushing
yards on 21 carries.
Walton(2-2) will travel to
Williston on Friday, Septem-
ber 30, for a 6:30 p.m. kickoff
with the Red Devils.

falls by

two
;By CHUCK HINSON
SWith less than a minute
,left to play in the game,
:South Walton was unable
;,to tie the score with a two-
:point conversion, and fell to
:Cottondale 8-6.
South Walton's record
:now stands at 1-4 for the
season.
It was.mostly a defensive
game as the score remained
;at 0-0 until late in the
,fourth quarter. Cottondale
:scored the first six points,
:but failed to make the two-
:point conversion. That was
--until a flag was thrown
:against South Walton for a
:face mask and the Hornets
::got.another successful try
:::on the play.
SWithin a minute of play,
:South Walton stormed back
:down the field and the
:Seahawk's Dexter Bare-
:field took it in for South
*;Walton's only score of the
*:game. The two-point con-
version failed and the Hor-
:nets kept the victory at
:'home.
:Barefield had 52 yards
:rushing to lead the offense.
S:Kenzie Clemmons added
another 43 yards for the
Seahawks on the ground.

Florida's 'other.teams'

are stirring the mix


By CHUCK HINSON
It is nothing to read in the
papers and see the slaugh-
ters that Florida has been
handing out to opponents,
the rebirth of the Seminoles
or the fourth-quarter shock-
ers by Miami. But there are
two other teams that are get-
ting tons of attention and
making heads turn all over
the nation. .
The University of South
Florida and the Univesity of
Central Florida crumbled
records this past weekend
and both teams are set to do it
again in the next upcoming
weeks.
In Tampa, South Florida
(3-1) pulled the upset of the
year so far as they dis-
mantled and then ultimately
destroyed the No. 9-ranked
Louisville Cardinals. The
Bulls blasted the visiting
team with a score of 45-14.
Receiver Amarri Jackson
had two touchdowns, two
interceptions for the Bulls
and threw for a third against
Louisville.
The loss was the first for
the Kentucky team since
their upsetting loss to an-
other Florida team in Octo-
ber of 2004, Miami, a team
that was once the "sure
thing" for the Big East.
The Big East now has to
settle for a second-rate bowl
game, since many felt that
the Cardinals, after Miami
exited the conference, would
be that conferences ticket
into the BCS bowl bids.
South Florida's victory
stopped the nation's third
longest winning streak, but
more impressive, this in only
the ninth season of college
football.
The other Cinderella team
that did not get as much at-
tention, but brought down


Wolverines

out of top 25

By CHUCK HINSON
The winningest team in col
lege football history, the
Michigan Wolverines, are n
longer in the top 25 aftel
Saturday's lost to Wisconsin
It is the first time the Michi
gan team has been out of th(
top 25 most prestigious spots
in seven years.
They had boasted 114
straight weeks in the top 25
spots and rankings. That rec
ord has never been matched.
The last poll that did no
include the Michigan Wolver
ines was on Oct. 18, 1998.
Southern, California is or
the path to becoming the No
1 team for the longest period
of time. The Spartans have
been riding the top spot for 23
weeks and say they have no
intention on giving up the
position.
Michigan was ranked in
the No. 4 spot when the 200t
season opened, but after the
Saturday 23-20 loss to Wis
consin and-the loss to Notre
Dame, the 2-2 Wolverines
have slipped into the raking,
of the top 40 teams in the
nation.

Cosson of DeFuniak Springs, caught this approximately 50
pound 50 inch monster bull red fish on a fishing trip to Venice,

could keep. The fish was over limit size and had to be re-
leased. Pictured with Perry is the fishing guide.

Commissioners


drop millage rate


again

By DOTTY NIST
Walton County property
owners will be paying higher
ad valorem taxes next fiscal
year, but it would have been
even more if citizens had not
spoken up to county commis-
sioners on Sept. 26.
"The people spoke, and
they listened," said B6nnie
McQuiston of the Walton
County Taxpayers Associa-
tion (WCTA) this week at the
close of, the county's final
budget hearing. The public
meeting was attended by ap-
proximately 30 people.
Citizens' pleas for a .tax
break resounded with the
majority of the commission-
ers. In a 4 to 1 vote, a millage
reduction of about a quarter
mill was approved on Sept.
26.
Added to the half-mill re-
duction that the commission-
ers had approved on Sept. 6,
the millage reduction for the
2006 fiscal year comes to
slightly over three-quarters
of a mill. The WCTA had
called for a full mill reduc-
tion, but members appeared
elated with the success of the
three-fourths-mill subtrac-
tion.
One mill equals one dollar
per $1,000 of assessed prop-
erty value. The millage rate
for the 2005 fiscal year was
5.0650 mills, and the rate set
for the 2006 fiscal year is
4.3099.
Even with the millage re-
duction, the county's ad va-
lorem tax levy will increase
from $40 million for the 2005
fiscal year to $52.5 million for
2006, a 35 percent increase.
A tax levy of almost $59 mil-
lion had originally been pro-
posed for fiscal year 2006.


The tax levy increase is be-
ing fueled by a jump in prop-
erty evaluations over the
past year, which increased on
a countywide basis by more
than $4 billion.
Ad valorem taxes will ac-
count for 44 percent of the
2006 county budget, which,
as approved on Sept. 26, to-
tals $119,770;000. By com-
parison, the 2005 budget to-
tal was $94,900,000.
Aside from ad valorem
taxes, gas taxes, licenses and
permits, charges for services,
fines and forfeitures, inter-
est, and other miscellaneous .
sources provide funding for
the budget.
At the Sept. 26 hearing,
Lex Grainger, representing a
newly formed property own-
ers organization, Coastal
Owners Group, warned that
high ad valorem taxes would
end the investment boom in
Walton County, driving in-
vestors to other areas
Grainger, an owner at Top-
sail Resort, complained, "We
are hard pressed to see what
we're getting for all this
money we're paying." He also
called for a cap similar to a
homestead exemption on sec-
ond homes.
County Attorney David
Hallman addressed the lat-
ter suggestion with the com-
ment, "There is no statutory
authority for you to (the com-
missioners) to deviate" from
state statutes applying the
cap only to homesteaded resi-
dences.
Inlet Beach homeowner
Frank Comer told the gath-
ering, "When I got my prop-
erty appraisal notice I was in

DONATED BY local artist Justin Gaffrey, this original painting was recently selected as the logo for the proposed CR-30A
scenic corridor. A community-based Corridor Advisory Group (CAG) is holding regular meetings to shepherd the unique
local county rbad through the process to obtaining the state scenic designation. The next step to be taken is a bus tour of CR-
30A fbr state transportation officials, which is set for Oct. 27 and will include CAG members and local authorities with a
wealth of information to share about CR-30A. Stops will include all the communities along CR-30A, and residents and
businesses will be welcoming tour participants from 8:30 a.m. to 5p.m. on tour day. The CAG held an informational meeting
for community residents on Sept. 22, and additional community meetings are planned as the scen p designation effort
proceeds. Watch the "Herald-Breeze" for information on these gatherings and/or contact Claire Bannerman at 622-3059.


DOT: US 331


bay bridge


will be the "nut to crack"


By DOTTY NIST.
A state transportation de-
partment official told Walton
County commissioners that
he is "confident" that four-


laning of sections of U.S. 331
north of the Clyde B. Wells
Bridge can be "moved up,"
thanks to additional state
funding.
Four-laning of the section
from U.S. 98 to the bridge is
expected to be completed in
2008, but no construction
funding is currently avail-
able to widen the other seg-
ments of the major north-
south route or the bridge,
which spans the Choc-
tawhatchee Bay.
The commissioners have
prioritized efforts to widen
the two-lane route, which is
the county's only evacuation
route, from U.S. 98 to 1-10.


Lowell Clary, assistant sec-
retary for finance and admin-
istration for the state De-
partment of Transportation
(DOT,) expressed optimism
that the situation with the
roadway sections could
change for the better with
the additional transportation
funding to come through
Florida's Strategic
Intermodal System program
and from the new growth
management bill. Clary met
with the commissioners in a
special session on Sept. 26.
Clary was less optimistic
about funding for the four-
laning of the bridge. Esti-
mates for that project have


risen sharply even from
those recently projected.
Commenting on that sub-
ject, Edward Prescott, De-
partment of Transportation
director for District 3, which
encompasses the Panhandle,
said that previous estimates
for the bridge project of $308-
310 million are no longer
valid because the environ-
mental regulatory agencies
have indicated that any new
bridge construction over the
Bay would have to go "from
bank to bank" without cause-
ways, thus driving the esti-
mated price tag for the

Two water deaths, more


than a dozen rescues


off area beaches


THE SOUTH WALTON Tourist Development Council (TDC) "cleans up" again with tour-
ism. industry awards! Executive Director Kriss Titus was proud to display the recently gar-
nered honors at this month's meeting of Walton County's local tourism council. For the sec-
ond year in a row, the TDC received a "Henry" Flagler award from Visit Florida, the state-
wide tourism promotion organization. This top honor for excellence in marketing tourism
was in recognition of the TDC's magazine advertising. Visit Florida also bestowed the TDC
with a Flagler finalist award for newspaper advertising promoting the Beach of South Wal-
ton. In addition, the TDC received three "Golden Image" pyramid awards from the Florida
Public Relations Association, including one first place "Grand Golden Image" award. This
first place pyramid award is presented for excellence in the category of "printed tools of
public relations" and recognizes the TDC's "Arts, Nature and Cultural Guide" (a four-color
brochure created under the direction of Erin Lagrosse.) One of the two smaller Golden Image
pyramids was also for the brochure and the other was for a video news release.


By BRUCE COLLIER
A Kentucky man drowned
on Saturday September 24 in
rough surf off of Miramar
Beach.
A second man collapsed in
the surf at Pensacola Beach
and later died, on September
25. An autopsy is scheduled
to determine the cause of
death.
Law enforcement and pub-
lic safety authorities for Wal-
ton and Escambia counties,
and for the Santa Rosa Is-
land Authority, say that
there have been more than a
dozen water rescues off of
the Panhandle beaches.


The rescues, as well as the
Miramar Beach drowning,
come as a result of heavy surf
kicked up by the remnants of
Hurricane Rita.
On September 24, Walton
County Sheriff's Beach Unit
deputies responded to a 2:15
p.m. report of a swimmer in
distress off of Scenic Gulf
Drive near Miramar Beach.
Also responding were the
South Walton Fire District
and Walton County Emer-
gency Management, and sev-
eral private citizens.
Working in what were de-
scribed as "dangerous surf
conditions," the rescuers at-


tempted to pull the swimmer
from the water. Despite their
efforts, the swimmer died at
the scene.
The deceased was identi-
fled as Ronald J. Hallquist,
52, ofWalton, KY. Double-red
warning flags had been
posted in the area of the in-
cident.
Bob West, public safety
manager for Santa Rosa Is-
land Authority, said that both
red flags and lifeguards have
been posted all along the
area's beaches.

with what would happen

Now with Hurricane Rita


[tt't-i L


slamming into the Texas
southwest coast and the
other side of Lousiana
around Lake Charles, it
seems Louisana's future
hangs in the balance. We
have seen the waters rise,
the death tolls mount and the
people being moved around
the country because of two
devastating storms ripping
through the South.
But to be of Cajun descent
and to know the traditions
that are so instilled in na-
tives, traditions that stem
from religion and rituals that
have been tested over the
past month, it's hard.
The food, the culture, the
art, and the people, have
made Louisiana what it is to-
day. From Mardi Gras and
crawfish, to Zydeco and
gumbo, the culture is cele-
brated.

the Cajun tradition runs
deep, even deeper than the
flood waters that have rav-
aged the city streets and low-
lying areas of New Orleans
and surrounding parishes.

Locally, since all the trag-
edy, Walton County resi-
dents have been taking in
refugees, have opened their
wallets to charities and have
held events that bring the
traditions and culture of
Louisiana to the Florida
Panhandle.
From New Orleans high

offs, and appreciation
events, locals are trying to
reinstill hope in our Cajun
neighbors.
On Oct. 7 and 8, two more

the fundraising attempts.
On Oct. 7, Cafe Provence is
hosting a benefit dinner for
the Danny Wuerffel Desire

SRB man

killed in

collision

By BRUCE COLLIER
A Santa Rosa Beach man
died after his vehicle struck
a utility pole on Bay Grove
Road in Walton County. The
accident took place at around
10:30 p.m. on September 21.
Cpl. D.M. Stewart of the
Florida HighwayPatrol re-
ported that a vehicle was
traveling west on Bay Grove
Road at a "high rate of
speed." The driver and sole
occupant was Joseph Alan
Kuykendall, 18, of 2432 Chat
Holley Road, Santa Rosa
Beach.
Kuykendall apparently
went into a 135-foot skid, ro-
tated clockwise, then struck
a utility pole with the left
side of his vehicle.
Walton County Emergency
Medical Services transported
Kuykendall to Sacred Heart
Hospital at Emerald Coast,
where he,was pronounced
dead approximately an hour
later.
The FHP report indicates
that it is unknown whether
drugs or alcohol were in-
volved, but that Kuykendall
was not using a seatbelt.
No charges are pending.

shock, sticker shock!"
He blamed the increase in
property evaluations on
speculative purchases by de-
velopers. "I would ask that
you look at the evaluation
process," he urged.
Attorney Hallman re-
sponded that the commis-
sioners do not have control
over property assessments
and that the county property
appraiser is tightly restricted
by state law in doing prop-
erty evaluations, which are
based on several sales in the
vicinity of the home being
appraised.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows was sympa-
thetic with Comer's com-
plaints. She spoke of an "ar-
tificial market based on flip-
ping" property.
"I think they're saying
that through flipping, prices
go up and people who live
here are hit with tremendous
taxi-." she continued. "I
think it's a phenomenon with
long-term financial impacts
on our area," she noted.
"I think we owe it to the
taxpayers to give them a
break during these very
tough times," Meadows
urged. She had proposed a
total three-quarters millage
reduction at the Sept. 6 bud-
get hearing, but her motion
had not been seconded.
District 1 Commissioner
Scott Brannon expressed
concerns about further re-
duction of the millage rate.
Would it hinder the county in
facing growth challenges? He
was worried about rising
prices for fuel and materials
and the need to improve
roads.He was willing to con-
sider the reduction but in-
sisted that the commission



BRIDGE

project up to half a billion
dollars.
This type of construction is
being mandated in the inter-
est of keeping the bay
healthy, Prescott explained.
Prescott envisioned leaving
the current two-lane bridge
with some expansion work
and adding a "sister bridge"
for the additional lanes. How-
ever, he said it would take
"five lifetimes" for him to ac-
cumulate the funds for the
project in his regular budget,
which is $20 million in "ca-
pacity dollars" yearly for all
16 counties in District 3.
"The greatest obstacle that
we have before us is the
bridge," Prescott told the
commissioners.
"The bridge is the nut to
crack" Clary agreed.
"It's a roadblock like this
that can cause people to
throw their hands up," Clary
added.
"I think we're already at
that point," Walton County
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows responded.
"The urgency is here and
now," she said.
The commissioners had re-
cently requested a meeting
with Gov. Jeb Bush to discuss
their concerns about the need
to widen U.S. 331. They were
turned down and were in-
stead directed to meet again
with transportation officials.
A number of such previous
meetings had been held,
which they had viewed as
unsuccessful. On Sept. 20,
the commissioners sent a let-

must still "be mindful of
these challenges."
Brannon pointed out that
Walton County already had
one of the lowest millage
rates in the state. Walton
County Finance Director Bill
Imfeld interjected that the
county's millage rate was
"the lowest" in the state for
small counties
The additional one-quar-
ter-mill reduction being eyed
on Sept. 26 equaled approxi-
mately $3 million. Among the
options on the table were
subtracting the amount ei-
ther from reserves or from
the capital projects fund.
Imfeld advised against tak-
ing the funds from reserves
for reasons of maintaining
good ratings for insurance
and to stay in good stead for
response to storms.
Over $18 million had been
budgeted for capital projects,
including the new jail, the
courthouse expansion and
renovation, and an animal
control facility.
County Commission Chair
Ken Pridgen suggested the
option of looking at bonding
to partially fund those
projects.
Brannon called the sug-
gestion "a great idea."
District 4 Commissioner
Ro Cuchens commented that
he sympathizes with the tax-
payers because, "We pay
taxes, too. We are still behind
the eight ball." Almost every
day someone calls asking for
a road to be paved, he re-
marked.
Cuchens said the county is
working in conjunction with
the Florida Association of
Counties to present legisla-
tion to set up impact fees.
"We are trying to come up


with some ways to alleviate
some of the burden," he said.
"I would loved to have seen
the millage stay the same
and the county give a rebate
back to the taxpayer,"
Cuchens added. He stated his
opposition both to taking the
$3 million out of reserves and
taking it out of the capital
project fund.
Commissioner Larry
Jones said he supported the
millage rate reduction but
called for the reserves to stay
in place.
He said that Walton
County has "been able to do
things in our county that oth-
ers have not," because'ad-
equate reserves have been
maintained.
Imfeld commented on the
possibility of not only bond-
ing but borrowing for capital
projects, plus pursuing "some
other revenue streams" such
as the half-cent sales tax and
revenue sharing.
Meadows proposed a mo-
tion to reduce the ad valorem
millage rate by a total of
slightly over three-quarters
mill, setting it at 4.3099 mills
for fiscal year 2006, at a rate
29.2 percent higher than the
roll-back rate.
Meadows further mo-
tioned to take $3.3 million
out of the capital projects
fund and look for another
source of funding to supple-
ment that fund.
Jones seconded with the
provision that the county
look beyond the budget re-
serves to make up the $3.3
million.

motion and the final budget
were approved in two 4 to 1
votes, with Cuchens voting
no both times.

ter to Gov. Bush strongly ex-
pressing their disappoint-
ment that they had not been
able to sit down with him and
repeating the original re-
quest.
Walton County District 3
Commissioner Larry Jones
observed that, without wid-
ening, the bridge will create
a "bottleneck," even if the
rest of the highway is four-
laned.
"I'm looking at every av-
enue I can look for," Prescott
assured the commissioners.
He suggested that "to fund a
project of this magnitude"
(the bridge) that it might be
necessary to look at a toll fa-
cility.
"I'm not trying to sell you
on tolls," Clary commented,
adding that he would encour-
age the commissioners to
look at that option and "keep
it on the table."
Prescott offered to have
DOT's "turnpike enterprise"
personnel meet with the com-
missioners to provide infor-
mation on the option.
"I would certainly like you
to bring them," responded
District 4 Commissioner Ro
Cuchens. Commissioner
Jones and Commission Chair
Ken Pridgen agreed that this
option should be investi-
gated.


"What has worked in other
places that this board can
look at?" asked Walton
County Legal Services Direc-
tor David Hallman.
Clary answered that many
areas are "partnering" with
DOT on state highway
projects in a variety of ways,
among them right-of-way or
financial donations and pro-
viding curb and gutter work
or other labor.
Meadows asked if a tempo-
rary bay bridge for evacua-
tion situations would be a
possibility. Clary said that
"all the basics" such as pil-
ings would still be required,
and he was not sure of the
financial feasility of such a
plan. However the officials
agreed to look at it.
Prescott noted that there is
a state infrastructure bank
that issues loans to local ar-
eas for road projects at zero
percent interest.
Local realtor David
Kramer suggested that the
commissioners look at the
possibility of bridging the
Intracoastal Waterway at its
narrowest point in order to
provide an alternate
evacuation route, perhaps

initially with a temporary
structure.
Meadows agreed to inves-
tigate that option.

Too early to tell Katrina's


impact on unemployment


By Leah Stratmann
It may be too early to tell
whether the influx of dis-
placed persons from Hurri-
cane Katrina will have an
impact on the already low
unemployment numbers in
Walton County. At this point
many of the evacuees are in
the process of deciding
whether or not they will re-
main in this community or go
elsewhere. Those with the
means to flee the storm also
face a mountain of paper-
work prior to the start of re-
building their lives.
A spokesman for
ResortQuest, one of the
area's largest employers, re-
marked that Walton County
already has the lowest unem-
ployment rate in the state of
Florida.
Silver Sands Factory
Stores public relations man-
ager Becky Fowler said many
of the displaced persons drop-
ping by the hurricane relief
hub at the shopping center
are still not clear on whether
or not they will be able to re-
turn home and may be hesi-
tant to accept a job for just a
few weeks.
"We have plenty of job
openings-about 25 percent.
It has been very challenging
this year. During the busy
season, we were only at about
60 percent staffing, so we


have jobs now for those who
want them."
ResortQuest, like many
large operations in the re-
gion, slows down in the win-
ter months. "We don't have a
lot of open positions right
now," according to Alexia Poe,
a ResortQuest operations
manager in Nashville. "How-
ever it is my understanding
that at this time there is one
evacuee in the interview pro-
cess for a position.
ResortQuest also attended a
job fair on Sept. 23 at Seaside
specifically for evacuees."
Jobs Plus was also one of
the participating agencies in
the job fair. According to em-
ployee services representa-
tive Cheryl Fellenz, "numer-
ous people came through
looking for jobs and we have
been able to place several."
Hard numbers were unavail-
able at press time, but
Fellenz said there were a
"couple of weeks where the
agency was inundated with
evacuees seeking employ-
ment."
Fowler said the numbers of
jobs open. at Silver Sands re-
mains high. "We have posi-
tions available, but I don't
expect actual employment
numbers to change for a
couple of months. A few
people have come in to apply,
but not a lot of them," she


said. All the jobs are avail-
able at the outlet are listed
online at
silversandsoutlet.com and a
visit to the site shows open-
ings all across the spectrum
of retail operations. Full and
part time positions are avail-
able for sales associates,
managers and assistant
managers. A few openings
exist for administrative office
personnel and most all of the
positions listed pay well
above minimum wage.
Fellenz emphasized that
Jobs Plus has a variety ofjob
available as well as training

Biting dog flys return


If you notice a low flying
DC-3 airplane in the south
Walton area for the next,
couple of months, spraying a
material, it is the state of
Florida's Department of Ag-
riculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Bureau of Entomology
and Pest Control's airplane
spraying.for the pestiferotus


dog fly.
This insect migrates with
the winds out of the north
and build up on the Gulf

beaches this time of year. The
dog fly looks like a regular
house fly, expect it bites.
These flies can be a terrible
nuisance with their biting
but, thankfully, they do not


transmit any human dis-
eases.
For more information con-
cerning the dog fly control
program, call South Walton
County Mosquito Control in
Santa Rosa Beach at 850-
267-2112 or the Dog Fly Con-
trol office in Panama City at

Water Use Tips



and Statistics



Install aerators on your kitchen and bathroom faucets to
reduce indoor \ after use. Aerators mix air with the \\ after.
creating a tlo\ that is still forceful but that uses far few er
gallons per minute.

Dish washer manufacturers now offer high-efficienc\
dish\ asher models. These dishwashers use less water
and energy. A high-efficiency dishwasher can wash a load
of dishes using 5 to 7 gallons of water.

Repairing dripping faucets and leaky toilets. Dripping
faucets can waste about 2.000 gallons of \ after each year.
Leak\' toilets can \ waste as much as 200 gallons of water
each day.

B\ installing more efficient %\ after fixtures and regular\
checking for leaks, households can reduce daily w\ after use
by about 35%. .

If all U.S. households installed water-sa\ ing features.
%\ after use would decrease by 30(y. saving an estimated
5.4 billion gallons of w after per day. This would result in
a sa\ ing of 11.3 million dollars per day.

Households on average use 350 gallons of water per da\.

In 2000. the highest vw after consuming states w withdrew:
California 51,200 million gallons per day I mgd i:
Texas- 29.600 mgd: and Florida 20.100 med.
In comparison, the low est water consuming states w withdrew:
Alaska 305 mngd: Rhode Island 429:

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2005


WALTON COUNTY THIS MONTH

In his address to the nation, President Bush asked all Americans to "Find your role and do your
part." Walton County has set the example! The Emergency Management Division sent firemen,
EMT's and first responders to Mississippi and Louisiana. They set up shelters, manned first aid sta-
tions and supported the 911 efforts. The Walton County Health Department dispatched an environ-
mental specialist and several crews from Public Works took county equipment and helped with hu-
man needs assessment and distribution of supplies.
Many of the evacuees came to Walton County and have remained because they are unable to return
home. Walton County Emergency Management, Public Information, the Health Department, Facili-
ties Maintenance along with the City of DeFuniak Springs, the American Red Cross
and a myriad of church and civic organizations have stepped forward to help our
Neighbors who have lost so much.


Jef f ck\a5, Energent5 Response
Coordinator, also ent to Pearling-
Jerome Szczekot, EMS Shift Supervisor along ton, MS and helped turn an elemen-
with Judy Allison, Melissa Brown, Eddie Paul tary school into a shelter. Most of
and Jonathan Davis were one of the first teams to Pearlington's 1,700 residents are

Kevin Prater, John Trammell ,Billy Don Infinger, Kenneth Weeks, Ben Harris and Steve Callahan
from Walton County Public Works went to Pearlington, MS and took ice, water, cots, food and
other supplies to people stranded in their homes. Kevin Prater related a story about an elderly cou-
ple living in a camper who had no food, water or electricity. He found them a generator and
helped hook it up so they could run a small air conditioner and have lights. Kevin says he is ready
to go back again! "We are so lucky, these people have lost everything, I just want to go back and
help."


Matt Coleman, Environmental Supervisor with the
Walton County Health Department deployed with
the State Strike Team. He made shelter inspections,
feeding site inspections and other environmental
health assessments.

The heat, humidi, and dirt made the shirts 1.'orn b, I. olunieers
from Walton County impossible to wear after just a few hours,
so a call was put out for T-shirts for the Walton County crews.
Thanks to Chelco, the Tourist Development Council and the
Florida Chautauqua, clean, dry T-shirts were sent to the teams
from Walton County.

over property



to CAB


Trustees approved an
agreement between OWC
and the state's Florida Inter-
nal Trust Improvement Or-
ganization for a 50-year lease
of 30 acres in south Walton
County at Churchill Bayou
at a cost of $300 annually.
The site will be used by the
Choctawhatchee Basin Alli-
ance (CBA) of OWC as a dem-
onstration site for best man-
-agement practices for storm
water and land use including
conservation and enhance-
ment.
The Choctawhatchee Basin
Alliance is an environmental
organization operated under
the auspices of OWC. The
group has been active since
1996 in water quality moni-
toring, analysis of water
quality data, remediation
projects in the basin and in
raising public awareness of
the need to actively restore
and enhance the Chocta-
whatchee Bay and surround-
ing watershed.
SOWC trustees also ac-
cepted an audited financial
statement and IRS 900 filing
for the OWC Foundation, the
college's fundraising organi-
zation. The audit reflected a
clean opinion with no find-
ings.
As the governing board of
the OWC Collegiate High
School, college trustees also
approved several items re-
lated to the charter high
school, including a plan to
spend $22,797 received in
recognition of the school at-
taining another "A" grade on
the FloridaA-Plus SchoolAc-
countability Program. The
plan, recommended to the
trustees by school staff, calls
for all funds to be spent on
items such as educational
materials, academic enrich-

ment activities and tutorial
support for students. Trust-
ees also approved the school's
annual report for the school's
fifth year of operation. High-
lighted in the report were
accomplishments such as:
Collegiate High composite
ACT scores exceeded the dis-
trict, state and national com-
posite scores,
100 percent of 10th grade
students meet the state's
high standards in math,
97 percent of 10th grade
students meet the state's
high standards in writing,
87 percent of 10th grade
students meet the state's
high standards in reading,
100 percent graduation of
the school's senior class with
91.3 percent of graduating
seniors also earning an
associate's college degree
from OWC,
90 percent of graduates
qualified for Bright Futures
scholarships and other ac-
complishments.
OWC trustees also ap-
proved agreements with the
Walton and Okaloosa County
School Districts to provide
dual enrollment opportuni-
ties to area high school stu-
dents. Dual enrollment is a
statewide program that al-
lows high school students to
enroll free of charge in college
courses at Florida public col-
leges to earn both college
credit and credit toward high
school graduation.
More than 30,000 high
school students in Florida
participate annually in dual
enrollment and OWC is the
region's dual enrollment pro-
vider.
Information is available
on the OWC dual enrollment
web site at www.owc.edu/
dual.


A GIFT FOR DADDY-As her father, Dr. Paul Allen, is
refurbishing his offices, his daughter, Taylor, seven, came up
with the idea of a new piece of art for the office. With a little
cooperation from mother, Stephanie, to provide a suitable
frame, Taylor finished her painting of a zebra during one of
her sessions at the Robert and Sharon Long Watercolors store
in the Holiday Plaza ofMiramar Beach. She has been paint-
ing for about a year at the Long's store. During the Long's
art show, held at the the Seagrove Conference Center last
February, she was a big hit among the artists participating.

STATE OF FLORIDA DEPART-
MENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL
PROTECTION NOTICE OF
INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT
I.D. Number 1310258-003-AC

The Department of Environmen-
tal Protection gives notice of its in-
tent to issue a permit to Panhandle
Mortuary, Inc. to construct a Human
Crematory located at 1474 State
Highway 83 North in DeFuniak
Springs, Walton County.
This permit is for the construc-
tion of a B&L Systems Phoenix II-1
cremator. This B&L cremator con-
sists of a primary and secondary
chamber (afterburner) natural gas
fired chambers with a total design
heat input of 2.0 MMBtu/hr (0.5
MMBtu/hr, primary chamber; 1.5
MMBtu/hr, secondary chamber).
Emissions are controlled by the af-
terburner that will maintain a mini-
mum combustion zone temperature
of 1,600"F prior to and during com-
bustion. The secondary chamber is
designed to provide one second resi-
dence time at 1,8000F, and is
equipped with a continuous tem-
perature monitor and recorder. Cur-
rently Panhandle Mortuary, Inc.
operates a B&L human crematory
(Permit # 1310258-002-AG) and a
Tri-County Animal Crematory, Inc.
operates a B&L animal crematory
(Permit # 1310259-002-AG) at this
site.
Particular matter, carbon mon-
oxide, nitrogen oxides, sulfur diox-
ide, and volatile organic compound
emissions for this new unit are ex-
pected to be less than 5 tons per
year, based on the maximum per-
mitted operation time of 8,760 hours
per year. In fact the addition of
these emissions to the potential fa-
cility-wide emissions (all three
units) will equate to less than 5 tons
per year.
A person whose substantial in-
terests are affected by the
Department's proposed permitting
decision may petition for an admin-
istrative proceeding (hearing) in ac-
cordance with Section 120.57,
Florida Statutes. The petition must
contain the information set forth be-
low and must be filed (received) in
the Office of General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Common-
wealth Boulevard, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000, within 14 days
of publication of this notice. Peti-
tioner shall mail a copy of the peti-
tion to the applicant at the address
indicated above at the time of filing.
Failure to file a petition within this
time period shall constitute a waiver
of any right such person may have
to request an administrative deter-
mination (hearing) under Section
120.57, Florida Statues.
The petition shall contain the fol-
lowing information; (a) The name,
address, and telephone number of
each petitioner, the applicant's name
and address, the Department Per-
mit File Number and the county in
which the project is proposed; (b) A
statement of how and when each pe-
titioner received notice of the
Department's action or proposed ac-
tion; (c) A statement of how each
petitioner's substantial interests are
affected by the Department's action
or proposed action; (d) A statement
of the material facts disputed by the
petitioner, if any; (e) A statement of
facts that the petitioner contends
warrant reversal or modification of
the Department's action or proposed
action; (f) A statement of which

require reversal or modification of
the Department's action or proposed
action and (g) A statement of the
relief sought by petitioner, stating
precisely the action petitioner wants
the Department to take with respect
to the Department's action or pro-
posed action.
If a petition is filed, the admin-
istrative hearing process is designed
to formulate final agency action. Ac-
cordingly, the Department's final ac-
tion may be different from the posi-
tion taken by it in this Notice. Per-
sons whose substantial interests
will be affected by any decision of


the Department with regard to the
application have the right to peti-
tion to become a party to the pro-
ceeding. The petition must conform
to the requirements specified above
and be filed (received) within 14
days of publication of this notice in
the Office of General Counsel and
the above address of the Depart-
ment. Failure to petition within the
allowed time frame constitutes a

ticipate as a party to this proceed-
ing. Any subsequent intervention
will only be at the approval of the
presiding officer upon motion filed

Fashion Fun--Here they go
again! The volunteers at
Caring & Sharing will be
showing their thrift shop gar-
ments at their 2nd Annual
Fashion Show and Luncheon
on Sunday, Oct. 2, 1-4 p.m.
The event was packed last
year, but since there weren't
enough parking places to
serve the throng, it was de-
cided to move to the new
venue this year. Some 20
models-gals, guys and kids-
-will parade and show casual,
cocktail and children's out-
fits. You will be surprised at
the quality and style of the
clothing, and also be sur-
prised at some of the outfits
the men, sort of, throw to-
gether.
Along with a delicious
lunch, there will be a raffle
that includes a donated
Sandestin Hilton overnight
package and thrift shop jeans
for sale, hand-painted with
designs created by a local art-
ist.
Tickets are $15 in advance,
$20 at the door. They may be
purchased at the Walton
Sun, churches in Santa Rosa
Beach and at the Caring &
Sharing facility at Lynn
Drive, Santa Rosa Beach.
Call Caring & Sharing at
267-2866 if you have any
questions.
Kids' Art Day--The intense,


impasto acrylics paintings of
landscapes and flowers of
TDC artist of the year, Jus-
tin Gaffrey, and the
technicolor bright, eclectic
work of his artist wife, Billie,
are encased in a honeycomb
of nooks and crannies at the
Gaffrey Gallery.
On a gloomy Saturday,
with Hirricane Rita hover-
ing in the Gulf, it was the per-
fect day for more than 30
youngsters who were treated
to a day of hands-on art ac-
tivities and a buffet lunch.
The media event was spon-
sored by the SWTDC with
the whole-hearted coopera-
tion of the Gaffreys, who
planned the day.

Sad Sight-The beach ac-
cess parking lot at Pompano
Joe's in Miramar Beach is
closed again, compliments of
Hurricanes Dennis, Katrina
and Rita. Driving along old
Hwy. 98 (I find it difficult to
write Scenic Gulf Drive) last
Friday, I decided to lower my
car windows, and inhale the
salty gulf air to conserve
gas. Along with air, I re-
ceived an eye and mouthful
of wind-blown beach sand
before it blanketed the road.
A giddy thought crossed my
mind as I blinked the grit
away- those bits of sand
were worth thousands of
$$$! Wow.


GREEN THUMB GARDEN CLUB vice-president Marga-
ret Schmidt thanks Topsail State Park Ranger Dave Scott
for his Sept. 21 presentation at Embassy Suites. His topic
was the poisonous plants of the panhandle.


ARTISTBILLIE GAFFREY right, teaches youngsters how
to construct a three-dimensional self-portrait at the Gaffrey
Gallery. The Walton County TDC sponsored the all day art
event on Saturday.


KIDS' ART DAY at the Gaffrey Gallery attracted more
than 30 youngsters to a dayq of art activities, with artists
Justin and Billie Gaffrey. Justin is the TDC's "Artist of the
Year, 2005."


OUTER BANDS OF HURRICANE RITA wind and rain
arrived at Miramar Beach Friday. The Whale's Tail Res-
taurant drew onlookers fascinated by the surf throughout
the weekend.


TAYLOR COMETTA OF
FREEPORT seriously studies
an object before adding it to
her self-portrait creation dur-
ing Kids' Art Day at the
Gaffrey Gallery.


JORDAN PAGE'S FACE ispaintedads were all youngsters
who attended Kids' Art Day on Saturday. In the background
is a large panel of squares for the young artists to create on.
When completed, the panel will be on display at TDC
children's art events.


Seaside Repertory Theatre



"Fisherman and His Wife" at



West DeFuniak Elementary


By BRUCE COLLIER
Seaside Repertory Theatre
(SRT) took its show on the
road to West DeFuniak El-
ementary school this week.
SRT put on two perfor-
mances of its children's play,
"The Fisherman and His
Wife," before a packed crowd
of appreciative students.
The early morning show
was done for grades K-2, with
a lively audience of about 350
kids. The second show was
presented to grades 3 5.
SRT's artistic director,
Craige Hoover, warmed up
the crowd, encouraging the
students to participate as
"wind and water." In mo-
ments, the children were
waving arms and trying out
their voices in assorted sound
effects.
The play, which was per-
formed outdoors this summer
at Seaside, has been altered


to travel.
"We don't use scenery, just
the actors and the words,"
said Hoover.
Three actors, Mike Funt as
the Fisherman, Jennifer
Steele as his wife, and Joe
Starr as the Narrator and the
Enchanted Flounder, acted
and told the story.
"Fisherman" is an enter-
taining fable about a poor
fisherman who hooks a magic
fish. In return for its free-
dom, the fish grants the fish-
erman a series of wishes.
The fisherman and his am-
bitious wife keep asking for
more and more, until they
learn a lesson about greed
and being happy with what
you have.
Seaside Repertory Theatre
will continue to tour the play
to area schools and other ven-
ues. For details, call 231-
3033.


THE WIFE (JENNIFER STEELE) AND THE FISHERMAN
(MIKE FUNT) entertain the kids at West DeFuniak Elemen-
tary.
