Paxton parents think



efforts to rid school of



bats adds up to guano


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County School
Board met on Thursday, Sep-
tember 29, at the Tivoli Ad-
ministrative Complex in De-
Funiak Springs in front of a
standing room only crowd of
Paxton parents eager to hear
the superintendent's recom-


mendations concerning
Buildings 100 and 500 on the
Paxton campus. The two
buildings have been part of
a continuing saga over
whether they are safe and
bat-free.
Superintendent Carlene
Anderson presented a 20-


=By BRUCE COLLIER
A group of parents, whose children at-
tend Paxton High School, have retained an
attorney and sent a notice of claim to the
school district's risk management arm.
The notice is the next step in the process
of resolving the problem of alleged bat infes-
tation in the high school building.
Mike Coppins, whose Tallahassee firm rep-
resents the Panhandle Area Educational
Consortium's risk management arm, re-
ceived the notice in the form of a letter from
Reginald Morris. Morris is a Destin attor-
ney.
Coppins explained that the notice is a
statutory first step in pursuing possible tort
(civil injury) claims against a government,
or branch of the government.
Under the doct ine of sovereign immunity,
a state, or branch of the state, such as a
school district, is immune from being sued,
but can waive that immunity in certain in-
stances.
A notice of claim triggers a six-month pe-
riod, during which parties to a controversy
may attempt to resolve the problem. If noth-
ing is resolved, the state entity is deemed to
have denied the.claim. The matter may then
proceed to an action at law.
Morris said that he represents some 30
families, and approximately 70 students af-
fected by the situation.
Both Coppins and Morris confirmed that
the notice of claim refers to disease called
histoplasmosiss."


minute PowerPoint presen-
tation that walked the
throng of attendees step-by-
step through the process the
district has gone through to
try and eradicate bats and
bat waste. Anderson supplied
a complete synopsis to the
board, which is listed here as


Histoplasmosis is a respiratory disease be
caused by Histoplasma capsulatum, a fun-
gus found to grow in soil contaminated by
bird or bat droppings.
Disturbance of the soil causes fungus.
spores to become airborne, and breathing
the spores causes infection. Infected persons
apparently cannot transmit the infection to
others.
As yet, there have been no specific allega-
tions ofhistoplasmosis, but Morris said that
he is seeking to have access to the school
buildings to conduct enviroi-in rintal tests. So
far, he added, he has hot been permitted to
do so, but if the matter proceeds to a law-
suit, he would move the court for access.
In addition to a recitation of conditions and
their effect, Morris said that the notice in-
cludes claims for monetary damages, includ-
ing medical expenses, past and future inju-
ries, and loss of income.
Coppins said that the district has done "a
tremendous amount of work" on the prob-
lem already, and that he will continue to
communicate with Morris.
Morris, who said that he may amend or
supplement the notice of claim in the weeks
to come, has likewise indicated his willing-
ness to talk to the school district.

Both Coppins and Morris declined to fur-
nish a;copy of the notice, citing confidenti-
ality concerns.
The notice of claim was made on Septem-
ber 21, 2005.


follows:
March 10, 2005 Building
500 bat-free as noted by in-
spection of Walton County
Health Department.
June 8, 2005 Plant man-
ager made maintenance fore-
man aware of presence of
bats in Building 100 (first
time noted in Building 100).
East end of building still
compromised because of on-
going construction and need
for roof access to electrical
closet, room 121, building
100. Repeated attempts were
made to exclude bats which
had entered building. Ongo-
ing process as the roof and
electrical work continued.
July 20-22, 2005 Walton
County School District re-in-
sulated ceiling of Building
500 and re-examined any
possible bat entry points.
Replaced or repaired ceiling
tiles. Cleaned walls and ceil-
ing of bat residue with disin-
fectant. In Building 100, re-
placed or repaired selected
ceiling tiles and closed up
any entry points with expan-
sion foam insulation or mor-
tar on the east end of the
building where construction
continued.
August 4, 2005 Superin-
tendent Anderson met with
Wayne Miller to develop a
plan and give specific direc-
tions as to what steps needed
to be taken.
August 8, 2005 WCSD in-
stalled attic fans in Building
500 west gable. In doing so,
removed gable covering, re-
moved and cleaned bat waste
on the outside of building and
installed attic vent with ex-
haust fan.

17-year-old


organ donor gives


second chance to


nine others


By BRUCE COLLIER
When 17-year-old Pamela
Lynn Reid suffered irrepa-
rable brain damage in a car
accident last July, doctors
told her parents that their
daughter could continue liv-
ing on life support.
Instead, Pamela's mother
and father chose another
kind of life support. They
agreed to allow doctors to
take their daughter's un-
damaged organs, to be used
for patients in need of trans-
plants.
As a result, Pamela's heart
valves, corneas, liver, kid-
neys, and pancreas were
transplanted to a total of
nine people, giving them a
chance to go on living after
her death.
Ceceilia and David Reid
are originally from New En-
gland, but have lived long
enough in the south to have
raised 7 children, including
at least one Florida State fan.
"FSU was Pam's favorite
college," says her mother.
"She was planning to go
there and study clothing de-
sign. "
Both agree that Pam would
have approved of their deci-
sion, which David calls "the


only decision, but the hard-
est a parent can make."
"We got a letter from a lady
in Alabama who said she'd
had no hope," says Ceceilia.
"She had been praying for a
liver transplant."
The woman received
Pamela's liver, and is cur-
rently alive and doing well.
Their daughter's sacrifice
has motivated the Reids to
become active in promoting
widespread organ donorship.
"We encourage everyone to
put 'organ donor' on their
driver's licenses," says
David.
Pamela's fiance, Kris
Wingate, who survived the
accident, has become a donor.
Kris is still a frequent visi-
tor to the Reids, who keep a
prom night photograph of
him and their daughter.
Pamela's parents describe
their daughter as a "spitfire,"
who loved to sing and dance,
read, and perform in plays.
"She had an infectious
laugh," says Ceceilia. "She
worked hard to get whatever
she wanted."
The Reids have set up a
small memorial to Pamela,

Friday, October 7 will be
the last day of work for Lt.
Dennis Ward, acting Chief of
the DeFuniak Springs Police
Department.
Ward will not be waiting
long, or walking far, to start
his new job.
"I start at the [Walton
County] Sheriff's office on
Monday," said Ward.
Ward tendered his resig-
nation to DeFuniak Springs
City Manager Kim Presnell
in a letter dated September
21.
The letter, in its entirety,


reads:
"Ms Presnell:
Please accept this as my
letter of resignation from the
DeFuniak Springs Police
Department. My last day of
employment will be October
7, 2005. I will assist with the
transition of the new Chief
and close out the grants I am
responsible for. Thank you,
Lt. Dennis Ward."
Ward said that he has no
regrets. "I have given 100
percent to this job, and I thor-
oughly enjoyed working
here."
Ward said that he felt it


was time to move on, and is
looking forward to his new
duties with the, sheriff's of-
fice.
"I'm not sure exactly what
I'll be doing," he said, adding
that he anticipates that his
rank will transfer with him.
Ward has met with his
successor, incoming chief
Mike Adkinson, when
Adkinson was interviewing,
and also when Adkinson met
with the department upon
his hiring.
As to the new chief being
the nephew of city attorney
Clayton Adkinson, Ward had


no comment.
"I don't like to do that," he
said. "That's not me."
Comments from fellow of-
ficer and the community
have been positive.
"They all say they're sorry
to see me go," he said. As for
their comments on the new
chief, Ward said, "you can
hear anything."
"I told the other officers
that the new chief deserves
a chance, and that we need
to support him."
"Protecting the commu-
nity is the main thing, said
Ward.


PROUD PARENTS, CECEILIA AND DAVID REID, en-

donors.


Cemetery maintenance still not a dead issue


By LEAH STRATMANN
An issue that just won't
seem to die-the mainte-
nance of community cemeter-,
ies-was' once again on the
agenda at the most recent
meeting of the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC).
.During Quinn McMillan's
term as sheriff of Walton
County, which ended in 2000,


he directed county inmate
labor to provide landscape
and routine maintenance
work on various privately
held cemeteries. Local citi-
zens protested on the basis
that county labor, who are
paid with tax dollars, should
not be directed to work on
privately held property and
that inmates are prohibited
by law from working on pri-


vate property.
Legal statutes seemed to
be on the side of the citizens,
and the ACLU weighed in on
the matter as well, agreeing
with the citizen dissenters.
However, McMillian said
the service benefitted local
churches and he had no in-
tention of ceasing to provide
the maintenance. He said his
office would continue to pro-


vide the beautification work
because it put inmates to
work and benefited the en-
tire community.
The final shot was fired
when the Florida Sheriff's
Association said their policy
prohibited such use of in-
mates and directed McMillan
to cease, which he did.
Now the question has
been ressurected by Commis-


sioner Ro Cuchens. County
Legal. Services Director
David Hallman said' "to
spend money to maintain'
these cemeteries, the board
would have to find a public
benefit." He further cau-
tioned the board they
couldn't direct the use of in-
mate labor, even if the labor
is limited to mowing and
weeding.


Some community cemeter-
ies have asked for the county
to provide repairs to roads,
as well as maintain the
grounds.
Commissioner Ro
Cuchens made a motion to
hold a public hearing to de-
cide if it is in the public in-
terest to maintain the cem-
eteries and to try and find an
estimate of the cost of such

Guardado final sentencing continued to October 13


By BRUCE COLLIER
The final sentencing of con-
victed murderer Jesse
Guardado has been contin-
ued to October 13. The sen-
tencing was originally set for
September 30.
A jury has recommended
the death penalty for the 43-
year-old Guardado. Last fall,
he pled guilty to first-degree
murder in the beating and
stabbing death of local
realtor Jackie Malone.
Presiding Judge Kelvin
Wells may follow the jury's
recommendation, or can im-
pose a sentence of life impris-
onment without parole.
The law allows a defendant
who has received a jury rec-
ommendation of death to
have a "Spencer" hearing,
before the court makes its fi-
nal decision.
This hearing gives the de-
fendant a last opportunity to
present any mitigating evi-
dence to the court, before fi-
nal sentence is imposed.
Guardado waived this
hearing, on the record, when
the jury recommendation
was returned on September
15.
In the meantime, the state
attorney, Robert Elmore,

filed a memorandum with
the court requesting a Spen-
cer hearing, despite that
waiver.
Guardado was escorted
into court on September 30,
and was seated next to his at-
torney, John Jay Gontarek.
Guardado objected, telling
the judge, "I'm not going to
sit next to that dude."
Guardado become agitated,
and the court briefly re-
cessed.
Court reconvened, and
Guardado was seated along
a wall, flanked by deputies.
His attorneys, Gontarek and
Jason Cobb, were seated at
the defense table. Six dept-
ties and court security offic-
ers were in attendance.
Elmore re-urged the state's
motion for a Spencer hearing,
and Guardado once more
waived his right, asking that
sentence be imposed imme-
diately.
Asked by the judge


whether he had any further
mitigating evidence to
present, Guardado answered
that he had "nothing further
to present."
Guardado then asked to
speak to the judge privately.
The judge declined, telling
Guardado that the law did
not permit it.

The state then argued that
if the defendant would not
present any mitigating.evi-
dence, his attorney should do
so.
Gontarek offered in evi-
dence a written report made
by Dr. Larson, the criminal
psychology expert who testi-
fied for Guardado at the pen-
alty phase.
The state offered a victim-
impact statement in evi-
dence.
"I no longer have represen-
tation," said Guardado, add-
ing that his attorneys' efforts
had been "inadequate" and


Walton County Veterans targeted


Walton County Veterans'
Services has received word
from the Department of Vet-
erans Affairs that a fraudu-
lent company is targeting
veterans.
Veterans are receiving calls
from a company identifying
itself as the "Patient Care
Group" claiming that
veteran's prescriptions are


now being dispensed through
this company and if the vet-
eran wants to continue to re-
ceive medications, they
would need to provide a
credit card number.
The Department of Veter-
ans Affairs has not changed
the process of receiving and
dispensing prescriptions."


"ineffective," and showed
"great indifference" to his
situation.
The court then asked
Guardado what evidence, if
any, his attorneys had failed
to present.
"I can't discuss that in a


public environment," said
Guardado.
The court refused to recuse
Guardado's attorneys, and
ordered that sentencing be
continued to Thursday, Octo-
ber 13, at 9 a.m. Attorneys
for both sides were told to


make any final amendments
to their sentencing memo-
randa, already filed with the
court.
The judge ordered specta-
tors to remain in court until
deputies could escort the de-
fendant out.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


PERSONAL COMMENTS


Editor's Comment


By RON KELLEY


Readers to the rescue


I always enjoy hearing responses from our readers. We're
fortunate in that they are almost always positive and this
week was no exception.
Several people remembered the businesses I mentioned
last week in this column, those that once flourished in De-
Funiak Springs but have since passed into history, and sev-
eral readers reminded me of others that I had forgotten.
You will recall that I also mentioned that I had not dis-
covered the location of The Breeze office. However, as I sus-
pected, there were some who did and therein lies the tale.
Bennie L. Arnold wrote and reminded me that The Breeze
(now The Beach Breeze and located in south Walton) was
originally on 7th Street, next to what was Rivard Chevrolet
(now called Triangle Chevrolet. It was on the corner of that
building next to the alley that runs between Baldwin Av-
enue and U.S. 90.
Right across the alley was Jack Bodiford's barber shop
and the back of First National Bank (now the public
defender's office). This means that when we finish moving,
to our new offices, we'll be able to look out the back door
and see where the offices and printing press for The Breeze
once stood.
According to Bennie, "I worked for The Breeze for a few
years when I was a kid. Started out folding newspapers ev-
ery Wednesday afternoon, along with my sisters.
"We lived on 7th Street, behind what is now Triangle's
used car lot. Mr. Griffin ran The Breeze and while I was
there, his son, Jimmy Griffin took over. I was working there
when The Breeze sold out to the Herald. I believe it was late


Editor,
So the BCC caved in to pressure from the Walton Taxpay-
ers Association to reduce the millage rate about three-quar-
ters of a mil. Commissioner Ro Cuchens voted no to the
additional one-quarter reduction, stating the county needed
the tax for continuing road projects. That is true and I com-
mend him for his foresight.
Now the BCC has to cut funds for the jail and courthouse
and take out a loan. That borders on ridiculous. One would
assume the BCC had more wisdom than to be so culpable,
and more courage to stand for what is needed.
The BCC did not increase taxes. The taxes increased be-
cause the value of property increased. Instead of being happy
about the increased value of their property, the WTA and
cohorts jumped on the BCC to cut the millage. That smells
of greed, nothing less.
The last time I looked at my tax bill the school board was
taking more than the BCC, so.why doesn't the WTAdescend
on the school board for a cut? A big one!
Some of these people who howl so loudly for a millage cut
will howl even louder when the BCC cuts services and road
projects, drainage and whatever, that they want for a pit-
tance, and that isn't available.
The rural folk, which some of you consider the unwashed,
and unsophisticated, and worse, just want what they have
waited for all their lives- a paved road.
With the BCC waltzing to the music of the WTA and high-
value property owners, mainly in south Walton, paving dirt
roads will be a long time coming. Who will you have to thank
for that? The BCC, who hoisted the white flag at the first
sign of trouble.
The lone female member of the BCC is quoted as saying:
"I think we owe it to the taxpayers of Walton County to give
them a break during these very difficult times." Whew! That
just grips my heart. Her generosity overwhelms me, but
she favors forgoing money for roads.
Every soul who lives in north Walton County, please keep
that in mind the next time you are slipping, sliding, banging
and bouncing over you endless dirt ridges and potholes, eu-
phemistically called roads.
All these stories you have read about people being taxed
out of their homes is largely bull. Property values have gone
up, way up, so anyone who wants can sell at a huge profit.
Is difficult times when you can sell for a large profit? Eco-
nomics 101 says no.

1954 or maybe 1955. In fact, I helped move a lot of the mer-
chandise and supplies down to the Herald office, which was
just down the alley (to the Herald's present location).
"I had just got a Simplex ServiCycle from Speigel Catalog
and insisted on carrying the trays of type down the street
on my new cycle. Mr. Griffin and Mr. Storrs, from the Her-
ald, kept warning me that if I dropped a tray of that.type I'd
be in a heap of trouble. (Well, I didn't.)
"Circulation of The Breeze at the time was probably no
more than four or five hundred. After we folded them on
Wednesday and the address labels were put on with a little
hand machine that was filled with glue and had a cutter
blade on the front, we would take them, tied in bundles, to
the post office. Of course, the post office was right across
from Rivard's on Nelson (U.S. 90) and 7th Street at the
time so that was just a few steps away.
"After we got modern, and Mr. Griffin bought a newspa-
per folding machine, I stayed on and worked as a helper
around the office after school and on Saturdays.
"Mr. Griffin told me that since I lived close by, I could
open the office on Saturday mornings. Actually, I think he
liked to sleep late on Saturdays. Anyway, I would come up
the street, go down the alley to the back door, stick my hand
through a hole in the door and trip the inside latch and
open for business.
"No key. Didn't need one.
"On Saturdays, it was my job to clean all the printing
frames that were used to print the papers that week. I used
gasoline and a rag, cleaned the ink off and then started put-
ting all the little type blocks in the many drawers that held
all the different types.
"By the way, that old folding machine was a real pain in
the, well, let's just say it was a lot of trouble. It must have
had at least a hundred little belts made of cloth that had to
be constantly readjusted. Mr. Savage, who was the 'linotype
operator,' also ran the folding machine. After we' finished
folding the papers, there was always a pile of torn-up pa-
pers around the machine. It had a habit of jamming, tear-
ing and, in general, creating havoc with those papers.
"One day, after finishing the folding, Mr. Savage reached
into his shirt pocket to get his teeth (which he carried in his
pocket as much as his mouth). Well, they had fallen out into



Editor:
Among the many things a parent of an adolescent worries
about is how much their child or adolescent is being exposed
to opportunities for underage drinking,.and will their child
or adolescent become a statistic and succumb to the temp-
tation. This past Saturday night, more than 400 adoles-
cents in De Funiak Springs took advantage of an opportu-
nity to have fun without alcohol. Congratulations, Walton
County deputies, and volunteers of C.O.P.E. Center staff
for sharing this opportunity with these students. Approxi-
mately 250 of the students signed pledges to not drink be-
fore they are legally able to do so. The reports from the
chaperons indicate the night was a wholly successful effort.
This should give the adults in our community the notion
our youth will be responsive to these type events. Hope-
fully, we can see more of them offered.
Thank-you to all the volunteers. You may never be able
to know what the impact of such a gesture had on some of
these youth, but, do not let that deter you from giving to
. them. They are well worth the investments we are making.


the pile of torn papers and we had walked all over them and
broken them completely. There wasn't much left of those
teeth except a pile of dust!
"The printer at The Breeze was a black fellow by the name
of Raymond. He came over from Marianna and worked
Monday through Friday and then went home on Friday
night. (Raymond was still right there when the Woodham
family bought the Herald in 1969.)
"After the paper was sold, I worked in the Herald office
for a while, folding the weekly paper, running the hand-fed
presses, printing envelopes and such. I then moved on and
worked at Fisher's Supermarket, which later became the
Jitney Jungle (which later became Thriftway Supermarket).
"Wow, aren't memories fun!!"
Yes, Bennie, they surely are and you shared some won-
derful memories and filled in some gaps in my recollections,
too. Thank you for giving us all a better view of life as it
used to be, once upon a time, in DeFuniak Springs.

Editor,
Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers are extended to the
family of the 52-year-old victim who recently drowned in the
Miramar Beach area. At the south Walton Tourist Develop-
ment Council (TDC), we have been working diligently to at-
tempt to prevent this type of tragedy. Recent articles have
been published since the incident which have not addressed
with clarity the issues surrounding the flag poles.
The TDC has been working to restore the flag poles sys-
tem since they were substantially destroyed in Hurricane
Dennis. The year 2005 has already set a new historic record
for named storms. Our area has been dramatically affected
by four of these. One of these storms caused extreme ero-
sion that destroyed all our 56 beach accesses and also de-
stroyed the major part of our flag pole system as well.
The TDC immediately made a post-hurricane assessment
as we are the entity responsible for replacing the accesses,
flag poles and maintaining such. When beach crews went
out to begin reinstalling flag poles, it was quickly determined
that so much beach erosion had occurred that drilling down
four feet to pour the required concrete foundation was no
longer feasible because of the water table. With the chal-
lenge of not being able to put the flags in their existing loca-
tions, the crews began to look to higher ground. The new
challenge quickly became where to put the flag pole so that
it would still be visible from the beach. In addition, in many
instances new locations required new easements and per-
mission from private property owners.
As beach crews began reinstalling flag poles, a series of
storms left them in response mode with various emergency
beach issues caused by the numerous storm surges. In the
meantime, the TDC has continued to interact with the lodg-
ing operators to ensure front desk staff are educating guests
on the water conditions upon check-in and encouraging all
beachgoers to -check the website, www.seemore-
safetycrab.com, and watch the local media to determine the
water conditions before heading to the beach.
TDC beach safety efforts extend beyond just replacing the
flag poles. These include, but are not limited to, promoting
the beach safety message through brochures, posters, signage
and advertising that is intended to educate the public "to
know before you go" (into the water).
Beach safety remains a top priority for the TDC., and the
TDC continues to rely on community and media support to
ensure that the safety message is constantly reinforced to
our seasonal visitors and all beachgoers.

Editor,
By now my many friends and viewers of TV-24's "Home-
town Morning Show" will have doubtlessnoticed my absence
since this past Monday, as well as the program's new, shorter
format.
Since there was no opportunity for me to say farewell on
the air, I would like to take this opportunity to do so, and to
assure my good friends and faithful viewers that I am pur-
suing other opportunities and have no wish to leave DeFu-
niak Springs.
I was informed that, although the decision was deeply re-
gretted, it was driven by economic necessity.
It has been a pleasure to have tried to provide a mix of
news, interviews and humor for your morning enjoyment
for the past year and a half. I sincerely pray that God will
continue to favor TV-24's struggle to become established as
a power in the community.

Editor,
In reference to Lynn Downham's letter to the editor, 9/29/
05, concerning the subject of United Fire District wanting
to continue to serve the district as an independent special
fire protection district, I wish to offer this advice to the citi-
zens that are covered by this fire district.
First, you need to check the credentials and certification
of each volunteer as to whether they're qualified or certified
as a fire fighter of first responder.
Secondly, ask Ms. Downham how can Robert Nash be a
full time fire chief when, for the past year he has been a
paid full time fire fighter. The difference is essential for the
citizens to know, and what about his credentials and certifi-
cation? Is he state certified in Florida?
Thirdly, how important is your life, the lives of your fam-
ily and your property?
As the former captain of United Fire District, I urge each
citizen of United Fire District to check these certifications
and credentials, because your life and property is at stake.
In my opinion, you will be better served if the county took
over. Your lives and property will be protected by certified
and qualified fire fighter/paramedics 24 hours, seven days a
week, for 52 weeks.
The operation and power of the this fire district should go
back to the citizens and away from the hands of the chief
and this board.

PALS begins fourth year


PALS (Promoting Appro-
priate Life Skills) has begun
it's fourth year in Walton
County schools.
In PALS, students will
identify how self-esteem is
developed; identify how
choices are made and be able
to identify the basic process
for making decisions; will
identify basic facts about the
effects of smoking; examine
advertising and promotional
techniques that encourage
teenagers to smoke; describe
stress and the physical sen-
sations that are associated
with stress; will identify
what communication is and
the importance of communi-
cating their feelings; and will
identify what makes a person
a friend and identify the
characteristics they find im-
portant in a friendship.

PARS. is a prevention pro-
gram that is administered
through COPE Center, Inc.
in DeFuniak Springs and is
funded through the
Governor's Drug-Free Com-
munity Grant Program Title
IV of the No Child Left Be-
hind Act.


Research has shown that
children at younger ages are
beginning to experiment
with tobacco. PALS teaches
students in the third, fourth,
and fifth grade the negative
effects tobacco has on their
body and to others around
them; and how to make posi-
tive choices in their lives.
PALS classes meet one day
a week at Paxton School,
West DeFuniak Elementary,.
Maude Saunders, and
Freeport Elementary for 30
minutes a day.
PALS also offers tutoring
and mentoring for students
who may need a little extra
help.
PALS would like to thank
Walton County Schools for
allowing PALS the opportu-
nity to teach their students
positive life training skills
they will use all.their lives.
"We are looking forward to a
great year, and I'm looking
forward to working with the
students," said Jeannie Bent,
PALS prevention teacher.
For comments or ques-
tions, please feel free to con-
tact Jeannie Bent or Bryan,
Callahan at 850-892-S045.

Increase in fines


New traffic laws now in effect


The Department of High-
way Safety and Motor Ve-
hicles and the Florida High-
way Patrol remind all.driv-
ers that several new and re-
vised traffic laws become ef-
fective Oct. 1,
The base fine (not includ-
ing court costs, which vary by
county) for running a red
light is increased to $125
(from $60) and, upon convic-
tion, will result in four points
added on the driver's record.


(Ch. Law 200-194).
If a driverhas their license
revoked for a conviction of
driving under the influence
and did not meet the finan-
cial responsibility require-
ments at the time of the of-
fense,' the driver must pur-
chase and maintain a six-
month non-cancelable liabil-
ity policy. If the driver also
owns a vehicle, they must
obtain a six-month registra-
tion as a condition of restate-


ment. (Ch Law 2005-72)
Racing, on Florida's high-
ways will become a first de-
gree misdemeanor. Vehicles
used to race may be im-
pounded for a period.of ten
business days. Vehicles in
violation within five years of
a previous conviction may be
seized and forfeited. (Ch Law
2005-226)
The new laws are in addi-
tion to the primary seat belt
law for drivers under 21 that


became effective July 1,
2005.
."These changes to the law
are designed to promote
highway safety. Tragically,
too many persons continue to
die as a result of traffic
crashes. We encourage driv-
ers to obey all traffic laws,
don't drink and drive and to:
buckle up," said Fred
Dickinson, executive direc-
tor, Department of Highway
Safety and Motor Vehicles.

Committee hopes to

simplify homeowners

insurance policies


Tom Gallagher, Florida's
chief financial officer, an-
nounced a 10-member com-
mittee tasked with develop-
~ ing a standard homeowners
insurance policy for Florid-
ians that is both easy to un-
S" derstand and offers compre-
hensive coverage. State law-
S makers called for the commit-
tee in responses .to
S Gallagher's concern that
many victims of the 2004
hurricanes were not ad-
equately protected because
they either did not under-
stand the complex language
bart in their insurance policies or
had not updated their policy
limits to keep pace with in-
creasing property values.
"Time after time, in the
hurricane recovery town hall
sessions will meetings I held around the
Nov. 21 and state and in calls to my office,
11 a.m at the Floridians said they were
qua Center in surprised at what their poli-
ings, located cies didn't cover or that their
east. coverage was not enough to
s are free of rebuild their homes," said
aen are asked Gallagher,,who oversees the
e a seat. Call Florida Department of Fi-
OWC at 729- nancial Services. "The com-
Niedzwiecki mittee is tasked with devel-
S oping a simple, plain-lan-


guage homeowners insurance
policy with the consumer in
mind.
The new law, passed by
state lawmakers in the 2005
session, requires Gallagher to
appoint an advisory commit-
tee that includes two mem-
bers recommended by Insur-
ance Commissioner Kevin
McCarty, two appointees
from the residential property
insurance industry, two prop-
erty insurance agents, two
consumers, and Florida's In-
surance Consumer Advocate.
The committee must issue its
recommendation to the Leg-
islature by January 15, 2006.
Along with announcing the
members of the Standard
Personal Lines Advisory
Committee, Gallagher also
announced the committee's
meeting schedule. The first
committee meeting is sched-
uled to be held in Room 110
of the Senate Office Building
on October 4 from 10 a.m. to
5 p.m. in Tallahassee. The
other scheduled meeting
dates are October 28, Novem-
ber 1'7"aid December 6. The
final meeting will be on Janu-
ary 4, 2006.

Policies and Procedures on Retention and Promotion
General Policies
No student may be assigned to a grade level based solely on age or other factors that constitute social promotion or administrative placement.
Promotion procedures assure that students promoted within the district can benefit from the next grade level of instruction and that those who earn a
diploma from high school have met or exceeded all the requirements described by the State of Florida and by the Walton County School Board. Promotion
decisions are based upon the following:
SProgress tests
Classroom assignments and performance tasks
Daily observation
SState and district tests
Proficiency in reading, writing, and mathematics
SMastery of the Sunshine State Standards as outlined in the various Grade Level Expectations; and/or
Other objective data '
Students who exhibit substantial deficiency in reading skills before the end of grades one or two must be given intensive, research-based reading
instruction following identification of the deficiency. The student must be retained if the deficiency is not remedied by the end of grade 3, as demonstrated
by scoring at level 2 or higher on FCAT Reading for grade 3. At grade 3, students with reading deficiencies can be exempted from mandatory retention for
good cause.

PEOPLE, PLACES & THINGS


Standing up for children:



Walton County Guardian Ad Litem


By BRUCE COLLIER
Tucked away in a corner
of the Walton County
Courthouse in DeFuniak
Springs is a small suite of
offices, the Walton County
Guardian Ad Litem.
The staff consists of two
people. Charles Vocelle is
the program attorney, and
Lindsey Currington is the
case coordinator. The two
oversee a stable of volun-
teers, representing abused
or neglected children in
the court system.
The legal term for such
people is "guardian ad
litem."
Their job is to serve as
an "advocate and voice for
children," and to look out
for the best interest of the
child in situations where
that interest has often
been neglected or inten-
tionally disregarded.
The office has been in its
present location since
2001. Prior to that, the of-
fice operated out of
Crestview. Walton
County's guardian ad
litem program operates as
part of the multi-county
First Judicial Circuit
Guardian Ad Litem Pro-
gram.
At present, there are 10


volunteers. More are "des-
perately needed," says
Vocelle.
A recent count found
some 290 children in
Walton County eligible for
and needing a guardian ad
litem. Ideally, says
Currington, the office
should represent them all,
but this is impossible
without volunteer partici-
pation.
Applicants must be at
least 19 years old, and
must submit to a security
background check. No
specific degree or educa-
tional background is re-
quired. Volunteers are
given 32 hours of training
before being assigned a
case.
The next round of train-
ing sessions is scheduled
in Shalimar on October
15, 21, 22, and 29. Each
session runs from 9 a.m.
to 5 p.m., and offers in-
struction in the court pro-
cess, the role of the guard-
ian, interview techniques,
report writing, and lec-
tures by guest speakers
on various topics.
Once trained, the guard-
ian is assigned to a child's
case. A personal interview
with the child follows.


Based on the interview,
and other fact gathering,
the guardian prepares a
written report, which is
reviewed by Currington
and Vocelle. The guardian
remains on the child's case
until final disposition.
In addition to interviews


with the child, the guard-
ian talks to family mem-
bers, caretakers, teachers,
doctors, other agency case
workers, and police offic-
ers.
"We need people with
good common sense and
people skills, who like


working with children,"
says Vocelle, adding that
they must have "commit-
ment and integrity."
Currently, the staff of
volunteers averages about
2 cases per person, but a
volunteer guardian can
take as many cases as he


ADVOCATES FOR CHILDREN: Walton County Guardian Ad Litem case coordinator
Lindsey Currington (left) and program attorney Charles Vocelle (right).


or she can effectively
handle.
Currington is supposed
to have only ten cases, but
is currently balancing 32
active files, while pursu-
ing an elementary educa-
tion degree at Okaloosa
Walton College.
All of the guardians'
work is overseen and su-
pervised by Currington
and Vocelle, who meet
regularly with guardians
to assess a case's progress.
Funding for the program
comes from the state, as
well as the efforts of Child
Guardians, Inc., which re-
cently sponsored a golf
tournament to raise
money.
In addition to volun-
teers, the office is looking
to hire a part-time, staff
advocate. That position
would involve a caseload
of about 15 children.
Volunteer applicants, or
persons interested in
learning more about the
program, are invited to
call at 892-8676. Spanish-
speaking volunteers are
welcome.
"There's a huge need out
there," says Vocelle: "It's
personally very reward-
ing."

Walton County
Anchor Club

United Way
holds annual
'Day of Caring'
United Way recently held
its annual 'Day of Caring' in
Walton County. Members of
the Anchor Club and Key
Club of Walton Senior High
School, along with sponsor
Johnny Kay Ealum, went to
the Chautauqua Rehabilita-
tion and Nursing Center, a
convalescent home on South
2nd Street. There the stu-
dents worked on two outdoor
courtyards,applying fresh
paint to a picnic table and
birdhouse, planting flowers
and re-potting existing flow-
ers.
According to CRNC staff,
the students gave both court-
yards a real "face-lift" and
provided a valuable and
much-needed service, for
which the CRNC is truly
grateful.

Thinking of




"Our Father"


By Dr. Robert M. Jaye
God is not the Father of all
people. The doctrine of "the
fatherhood of God and the
brotherhood of man" is not in
the Bible. He is the Creator
of all persons, however He
cannot be called the Father
of all persons. That comes
only through faith in Christ.
Read the Sermon on the
Mount (Matthew 6:9).


True, man is more than an
animal because he was cre-
ated in the image of God.
Man is a thinker and has a
philosophical outlook on life.
Humans have a soul and can
communicate with God
through Christ and the Holy
Spirit. Yet sin marred the
image of God in persons, leav-
ing them dead in trespasses
and sin'(Ephesians 2:1).


God is revealed in Christ.
The greatest privilege we
have is calling God, the Cre-
ator, "Father" through Christ.
Through Christ, the father-
hood of God is revealed be-
cause "God was in Christ rec-
onciling the world unto Him-
self' (2 Corinthians 5:19). As
a young person, Christ said
that He had to be about "my
Father's business." His
prayer in the Garden of
Gethsemane was to His Fa-
ther.
It is interesting to note that
He did not pray to His cre-
ator, judge, or ruler. He
prayed to the heavenly Fa-
ther. God is the creator of all,
but he is the Father only to
those who become His chil-
dren in Christ (1 John 3:1-2).
In Christ, we become true
children of God, and joint
heirs with Christ.
God loves us supremely.
God cares for us and is not de-
tached from us in joy or sor-
row. God will discipline us
according to our needs that
we may be obedient children.


THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 6, 2005

And God willcomfortus. Like seek the approval of the Father. Find Him in Christ
Father, like child! Do not crowd, but the approval of the by repentance and faith.


Compassion

is our passion.

N\'t iery'one can say they're passionate about their work.
We're not everyone.
El r day that we're able to help another family make
It tihlgh a painful loss is one more day we're proud
rt I.- in our chosen profession. Our compassion toward
.tjiiii's and enthusiasmfor serving the community
is truly what sets us apart.

Seahawks blast Gators


By CHUCK HINSON
A district win, a pumped-
up team and a head coach
with a shaved head. That's
was the result on Friday
night as the South Walton
Seahawks took an early lead
over visiting Baker, and kept
their district victory at home.
The Seahawks shut out the
Baker Gators, 28-0.
The Seahawks took advan-
tage of many Baker mis-
takes. South Walton captal-
ized on numerous turnovers
and added more points to
their lead every time they got
the ball.


South Walton's Dexter
Barefield shined on the field
as he racked up 140 yards
yards on rushing and three
touchdowns. The offense
took a strong stand against
the Gators, and took advat-
nage of weak lines and
slower defenders.
The Seahawks entered the
locker room at halftime with
a 13-0 lead and an attitude
that they couldn't lose.
The second half of play was
once again all South Walton
as the defense stepped up
even stronger than in the
first half. Defender Dion


Jones made a crucial play in
the fourth quarter with 6:03
to play by jumping up with
the Baker receiver he was
covering, and coming down
with the interception.
The Seahawks allowed no
scoring and once again
Baker left the field with hav-
ing only one touchdown for
the season. The district vic-
tory for the Seahawks
pushed the squad one step
closer to their first state
play-off berth.
Walton (2-3) visits the
Seahawks on Friday night.
Gametime set for 7 p.m.


FREEPORT'S LLOYD ANDERSON dodges a West
Gadsden player and picks up a few more yards for the
Bulldogs. Ffeeport pulled the comeback of the year when they
stunned their opponent and those in the stands by winning
19-14.


Walton (&, South Walton
Friday, October 7, 7 p.m.


Walton leads series 2-0
2004: Walton 48 South Walton 20
2003: Walton 42 South Walton 0

W-lton has not lost to South Walton in two meetings. The
Braves can claim the county championship with a win as they defeated
Freeport 35-13 earlier this season. This will be the second year in a row
the Braves will meet the Seahawks in South Walton. Walton(2-3) and
South Walton(2-4) both have injury concerns entering the contest, but
South Walton comes in off a victory as the Seahawks won one of their
two district games last Friday against Baker 28-0.
Walton is reeling after dropping three straight games after a 2-0
start. The good news for the Braves is that they haven't played a district
game yet and still have time to solve their turnover woes. Josh Nettles
continues to pace the attack as the Braves look to break the losing streak
and get ready for the home game of the season next week against arch-
rival Pensacola Catholic in their first district game of the year.

Bulldogs

comeback

saves game

By CHUCK HINSON
It will probably be the
game of the year for the
struggling Freeport Bull-
dogs as they pulled ahead in
the second half of play
against West Gadsden, to
win their match-up 19-14.
Freeport's Lloyd Anderson
watched his dad as he
coached from the Bulldogs
sideline and listened to his
brother who graduated last
year from Freeport as he
yelled encouragement for the
young quarterback who ap-
parently did as he was told.
Anderson snuck in for two
Freeport touchdowns.
Joey Seibert added an-
other two-yard touchdown in
the fourth quarter that ce-
mented the Bulldog victory.
Both the offense and the
defense stepped up and
played one of their best
games yet. Ryan Bates and
Drew Farris stopped a couple
of plays and passes that
would have turned the ball-
game around.
The Bulldogs travel to Jay
on Friday to take on the Roy-

Walton Braves fall at Williston 20-14


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves were
stopped for the second week
in a row in the final minute
of the game as the Braves fell
to Williston 20-14.

Walton had a chance to
win the game in the final
minute as Walton ran four
plays from inside the Red
Devils 15-yard line, only to be
unable to get the ball into the
endzone.
The game marked the sec-
ond time in a week that Wal-
ton had fallen behind by two

touchdowns only to rally for
a chance to win the game.
Unfortunately the Braves
came up just shy of breaking
a three game losing streak
that has Walton's record at 2-
3 halfway through the season.
Walton got off to a great
start as Josh Nettles got loose
on the opening drive of the
game on an 84-yard touch-
down run that put Walton up
7-0 for most of the first half.
Williston got within a
point on a halfback option
pass as Tremaine Snead
passed 24 yards to Devin

Spring The Beaches of The EmeraldCostTHURSDAY.OCTBER6.25i


Officials awash in a sea of



questions over lifeguards


By LEAH STRATMANN
The idea of providing life-
guards on some south Walton
beaches has been bandied
about by the Board of County
Commissioners since six
people drowned in a single
day two years ago. To date no
action has been taken, but in
a letter to the commissioners
dated Sept. 13, Tommy Ervin,
chairman of the beach safety
committee of the South Wal-
ton Tourist Development
Council (SWTDC), has asked
the commission to move for-
ward with a plan to place life-
guards at the six regional
beach accesses.
The peach safety commit-
tee solicited thoughts, pro-
posals and expertise from sit-
ting members of the South
Walton Fire Department and
the Walton County Sheriff's
Department Beach Patrol,
who currently are tasked
with rescuing swimmers in
trouble as well as trying to
enforce the flag safety pro-
gram, but only by default.
South Walton Fire District
Deputy Chief Sean Hughes
said, "beach safety is not one
of the departments concerns
per se, but we are a rescue
organization, so regardless of
the nature of the emergency,
we will respond." Hughes,


who is certified for ocean res-
cue, said the department has
only limited medical emer-
gency equipment for water
rescue. "Without someone on
the beach, any rescue orga-
nization is already behind
the curve, which is why we
wind up recovering bodies. I
can promise you that people
do not drown on beaches pro-
tected by lifeguards. The city
of Fort Lauderdale, FL., has.
not had a drowning victim in
20 years during the times
when the beaches are pro-
tected by lifeguards."
As part of the beach safety
initiative, the TDC inaugu-
rated an educational cam-
paign last year featuring
"Seemore, the Safety Crab"
who displays the five flags
indicating daily surf condi-
tions.
When double red flags are
flying, the water is closed to
the public, although the pub-
lic often ignores the flag
warning in areas that still
have flagpoles. Many flag-
poles have been lost to ero-
sion in recent storms, leaving
some beaches in South Wal-
ton with no indication of surf
conditions, although 29 flags
are supposed to be flying
along the 26 miles of beaches.
The Walton County


Sheriff's Department cur-
rently has eight beach patrol
units whose primary task is
to enforce the laws and ordi-
nances of Walton County.
Sheriff's department spokes-
man: Capt. Danny Glidewell
said, "Beach patrol officers
are just like a deputy on
regular patrol-if you see
somebody in trouble, you
help them. We have made a
proposal for the sheriff's de-
partment to provide the life-
guards because we already
have the boats, the ATVs, and
the aviation unit. We think a
coordinated effort between
lifeguards, the aviation unit
and beach patrol would pro-
vide the best beach protec-
tion."
At the heart of the issue is
money. Who will pay for pro-
viding some measure of se-
curity on some beaches?
Kriss Titus, executive direc-
tor of the SWTDC, was in at-
tendance at the Sept. 27
meeting of the BCC.She said,
"We do have the money for a
first year of a pilot program
to put lifeguards at the six
regional beach accesses, but
not all 26 miles of beach."
Titus indicated funds would
be freed up by moving bud-
geted funds from other
sources, such as the Autumn


Tides initiative.
It is not yet known how
much providing lifeguards
would cost. According to
Glidewell, "we are waiting to
hear from the TDC and the
commissioners about the
scope of service they want to
provide before we can tell
them about cost." Glidewell
said the beach patrol units
train extensively in the win-
ter months to make them
proficient at beach rescue,
using lifesaving equipment
such as life reels, boards, vest
and the ATVs.

County attorney David
Hallman said the law states
that "for it to be permissible
to use TDC funds (for life-
gdards}, it must be an expen-
diture that increases tour-
ism.".Thus Titus and the
SWTDC must return to the
board of commissioners with
some evidence that providing
lifeguards on public beaches
will increase the numbers of
people visiting the beach.
Until now, "receipt of direct
evidence has not been pre-
sented" according to
Hallman. As currently con-
figured, SWTDC funds can
only be used to perpetuate
tourism with funds collected
from short-term rentals.


THE RECENT red tide conditions on Walton County beaches resulted in scenes like this one of Miramar Beach on Sept. 30, with dead marine life
scattered along the coastline. Conditions have improved this week, and the harmful algae bloom is expected to have cleared the area by the weekend.

Red tide takes toll on local beaches


By DOTTY NIST
"It has been a challenge,"
said Brad Pickel, Walton
County beach management
director, of the red tide con-
ditions that began last week.
Red tides are the result of
the explosive growth and ac-
cumulation of certain micro-
scopic algae in coastal wa-
ters. The toxins produced by
some of these types of algae
are among the strongest ever
discovered. The first red tides
reported in Florida occurred
in 1844.
Pickel said South Walton
Tourist Development Coun-
cil (TDC) beach crews have
stayed busy removing dead
fish from the beach, casual-
ties of the red tide. Sharon
Maxwell, director for the
South Walton Turtle Watch
Program, reports that, since
the onset of the red tide, six
sea turtles have been found
stranded on the beach, five of


them dead. One of those
turtles survived the affects of
the harmful algae and was
taken to Gulf World in
Panama City for recovery.
The Walton County Health
Department advises people
with respiratory problems to
avoid parts of the beach af-
fected by red tide, since it can
cause throat and nasal irri-
tation. Symptoms are usu-
ally temporary, and staying
in an air conditioned room
can speed recovery.
The health department re-
ports that, although most
people can swim in red tide
water, they may encounter
skin irritation and/or burn-
ing eyes. If this occurs, they
are advised to leave the wa-
ter and bathe off with fresh
water.
Beachgoers are advised to
wear shoes to protect their
feet from damage by fish
spines in areas where dead


fish have collected.
During red tide outbreaks,
commercial and restaurant
seafood is safe due to govern-
ment monitoring, according
to the health department.
However, recreational fisher-
men are advised to use com-
mon sense and refrain from
eating dead fish found in red
tide areas or oysters or clams
from waters affected by red
tide. Filleted fin fish, shrimp
and, crabs are said to be safe
to eat.
Red tide often changes lo-
cations daily due to wind con-
ditions. The cause for red tide
is under investigation by sci-
entists, including the Mote
Marine Laboratory and Wood
Hole Oceanographic Insti-
tute.. Nutrients both
manmade and natural are
believed to play a role in red
tide outbreaks by enhancing
harmful algae blooms or pro-
longing them.


START, a grass roots orga-
nization. that began in
Longboat Key, Florida and
has been in existence since
1995, has secured $4 million
funding to study red tide
from a human health and
economic standpoint and to
research possible methods to
control the phenomenon. The
group now has chapters in a
number of Florida cities.
More information is avail-
able on line at
www.startl.com.
Pickel said that red tide
conditions on the beaches of
south Walton have greatly
dissipated this week, and he
expects the harmful algae
bloom to be completely gone
from Walton County by the
weekend.

red tide exposure, call Red
Tide Hot Line staffed around

sionals, 1-888-232-8635.


SWIMMERADVISORYFLAGS, along with beach accesses, have become.
much scarcer as a result of Hurricane Dennis and the other hurricanes that
have impacted the Gulf Coast this season. However, tourism leaders say
they are priortizing the replacement of these warning flags as an important
part of Walton County's beach safety education campaign.


Warning flags


to go up ASAP


By DOTTY NIST
STwelve weeks after Hurri-
cane Dennis destroyed all 56
of Walton County's public
beach accesses, the South
Walton Tourist Development
Council (TDC) is still facing
challenges in getting swim-
mer advisory flags and flag-
poles replaced along the
county's 26-mile-long
beachfront.
"Many of the flagpoles ac-
tually washed out to sea,"
said Maurice Gilbert, chair-
man for the local tourism
council.
Since Hurricane Dennis on
July 10, there have been fur-
ther impacts on the coastline
by Katrina and Rita, the two
other hurricanes that hit the
Gulf coast this season.
Aside from ordering flag-
poles to replace those that
were lost, Gilbert said the
TDC quickly became aware
of other problems in getting
the advisory system; which
had consisted of 29 flags and
poles, reestablished. -
After an immediate post-
hurricane assessment, he
explained, when crews tried
to begin replacing the flag-
poles, it came to light that,
due to beach erosion, the
water table was too high to
allow concrete foundations to
be poured for the poles.
Many of the poles had been
located on private property.
With the need to move poles
further inland, came the need
for additional lease agree-
ments for the poles being
moved from public to private
property and revisions to ex-
isting leases with property
owners to reflect the change
in the location of the poles,
Gilbert continued.
SThe leases are necessary to
protect both the county and
property owners from liabil-
ity in connection with the
poles, he explained.
' Gilbert said 'the TDC also
faced the challenge of mak-
ing sure the flags were vis-
ible from the beach in the
new locations. Storm surges
from this season's other hur-
ricanes further hindered flag
placement, he added.
"There is a lot more in-
volved than just sticking a
pole in the ground," he noted.
"They'll all be in place cer-
tainly by next (tourist) sea-
son and hopefully the life-
guards will be in place too,"
Gilbert said of the flag sys-
tem.
A plan for the placement of


lifeguards at six regional
beach accesses is currently
being developed by TDC Ex-
ecutive Director Kriss Titus.
The plan, which will address
funding and who will be pro-
viding the service, will be
presented to the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners at a future
date for their consideration
and public input.
Gilbert said he believes
having six "guarded" public
beach accesses will be "a big
improvement." The -life-
guards are also envisioned as
ambassadors for the county's
beach safety education cam-
paign.
Gilbert expressed his deep
concern for the family of a
recent drowning victim at
Miramar Beach under haz-
ardous surf conditions. "We
deeply regret anyone losing
their life," he said.
Firefighters who had at-
tempted to save the victim
described surf conditions at
the time of the Sept. 30 inci-
dent as "like a huge washing
machine." They reported that
a highly trained lifeguard
called in to assist with res-
cue attempts himself encoun-
tered extreme difficulty in
the surf.
While the swimmer advi-
sory flags are an important
part of the TDC's beach
safety effort, Gilbert pointed
out that this is a multifaceted
campaign featuring bro-
chures, posters, signage, and
media advertising.
Front desk personnel are
giving out printed informa-
tion on beach safety provided
by the TDC and otherwise
educating visitors on beach
safety, he said, and
beachgoers are also encour-
aged to check the TDC beach
safety web site,
www.seemoresafetycrab.com,
for beach conditions or con-
sult the local media.
"Hopefully, we can find
other ways to keep people out
of the water when it's haz-
ardous," Gilbert said, but he
observed that, unfortunately,
warnings are often not
heeded.
"You can warn and warn,
but in the end, good common
sense is hard to beat," he
commented.
Gilbert said the TDC will
"continue on" with efforts to
improve communication with
beachgoers with the goal of
furthering their safety on
Walton County beaches.

Missing boater


found safe


On Sunday, Oct. 10, at ap-
proximately 8 p.m. the Wal-
ton County Sheriff's Office
(WCSO) responded to the
Clyde B. Wells Bridge in ref-
erence to a lost boater.
Deputy Eddie Raban initi-
ated the search for Billy Gene
Crawford, 34, of Freeport, Fl.
After speaking with Sam
Everheart, of Freeport, depu-
ties learned that Crawford
had gone out on his 18' cata-
maran at approximately 2:30
p.m. that day and had not re-
turned. Everheart said that
Crawford would not have
stayed out after dark and
that he was concerned about
his welfare due to the storm
that had passed through the
area earlier.
The Freeport Fire Depart-
ment was searching the wa-
ter on each side of the bridge
when Raban arrived and he
requested assistance from
the U.S. Coast Guard and
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Commission to assist in the
Search of Crawford. Around
9 p.m., Deputy Raban and
Sgt. Robert Gray launched
the WCSO boat and, along
with three Freeport firemen,
began a search of the north-
west side of the bay using
spotlights and night vision
goggles. While this search
was underway, the Air Heart
helicopter was launched and
began searching the south-
west banks.
At approximately 1:25 a.m.
Crawford's boat was found
200 yards west of the cause-
way that leads up to the
Clyde B. Wells Bridge.
Deputy Raban was able to
guide Sgt. Gray to Crawford's
boat with the use of the night
vision goggles, as they could
not see him with their spot-
light.
Fortunately. Crawford was
not injured but.the sails to
his boat had been severely


damaged. Crawford's boat
was towed back to the ramp
with the assistance of Free-
port firemen Adam Warner
and Jordan Herrick, where
he was reunited with his wife
and friends.
Crawford said that when
he first saw all the lights and
helicopter he was in the
middle of the Choc-
tawhatchee Bay on the west
side, about four miles away,
and knew that we were look-
ing for him, but he had no
way to signal for helps. He
stated that he drifted twice
to the west and had tried to
make it back holding his sail
by hand. Crawford's boat was
not equipped with a life
jacket, whistle or lighting
devices.

I Water Conservation:

Washing Machines
i.
A washing machine is the second largest water
user in your home, with toilets being first. A tradi-

tional washing machine uses approximately 41
gallons per load. The best way to lower this usage
is to buy a high efficiency washing machine.

These machines use 35-50%. less water and 50%
less energy per load. This will save you money on
both your water and energy bills.


No matter what kind of washing machine
you have, here are some basic tips that can

reduce water use for washing clothes:
SOperate the washer with full loads only -
even if the machine has adjustable load
setting. A full load is the most efficient

way to wash clothes.

If your washer has a variable water volume
setting, select the minimum amount

required per load.
Pre-treat stains to avoid rewashing.

Use the shortest wash cycle for

lightly soiled loads.
SCheck your machine hoses regularly
for cracks that could result in leaks.

Infill ordinance continued until October 25


By LEAH STRATMANN

In what amounted to a clas-
sic schoolyard call of "do
over" the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners could not agree on the
language of the proposed
infill ordinance as presented
by Pat Blackshear, director of
planning and development in
Walton County.
The public hearing focused


on "an ordinance amending
the Walton County land de-
velopment code to establish
a compatibility analysis for
development in the neighbor-
hood planning area/infill fu-
ture land use category; pro-
viding for severability' and
providing for an effective
date."

This was the second draft
ordinance presented to the


board after the planning and
development staff met with
representatives of the South
Walton Community Council
and the Walton County Prop-
erty Owner's Association
about the ordinance. The
BCC had recommended that
the staff revise the ordinance
to provide a specific area that
should be considered as part
of the compatibility analysis.
The revised ordinance was to


include language addressing
this issue.

Several commissioners re-
mained unconvinced the lan-
guage in the revised draft
was specific enough. "How do
we get to a point that says
this is the density? It is very
important there be a policy
attached that says this is how
we are going to look at these
things," said Commissioner


Rip currents more dangerous than sharks


"It's going to be a scorcher
today. Let's go to the beach!"
This statement is heard often
in Walton County during the
long, hot summer. Although
going into the Gulf can be fun
and refreshing, danger some-
times lurks beneath the sur-
face. Are sharks the greatest
marine danger? No.
According to Walton
County Emergency Response
Director Ed Baltzley, rip cur-
rents, which kill an average
100 people or more each year
on our nation's beaches, pose
a much greater threat to
beach goers than sharks.
With two recent drownings
and scores of visitors beings
rescued from the surf, it's as
important as ever to remem-
ber that Gulf waters can be
extremely dangerous, espe-
cially if swimmers ignore the
flag warning system.

Before packing the SUV
and heading to the beach, lis-
ten to local TV and radio sta-.
tions for information about
surf conditions. Stop by the
South Walton Tourist Devel-
opment Council Visitors Cen-
ter and pick up a; copy of


When It Comes to Beach
Safety, Make Sure You Know
Before You Go, and learn
about "Seemore, the Safety
Crab" and the flag safety sys-
tem along the beaches of
south Walton.
After reaching the beach,
before laying down a towel on
the sand, look for the near-
est flag safety system, lo-
cated on all 56 dune walk-
overs. If there is a red flag or
the winds are strong or the
surf is rough, avoid going into
Water above the knees and
never swim alone.
If caught in a rip current,
do iot try to move directly
back toward shore against
the current. Most rip current
drownings are caused by
people who eventually be-
come tired and go under the
water- after struggling
against the seaward pull of
rip currents.
There are two ways to es-
cape a rip current. The easi-
est way is just to wade or
swim sideways, parallel to
the beach, across the rip cur-
rent, which averages only 20
yards wide. It's important to
stay calm and not panic.


THE SEAGROVE GARDEN CLUB will be meeting on
Oct.12, at Yianni's Seagrove Grille. Our speaker for this meet-
ing will be Brenda Rees regarding the Walton County his-
tory. The meeting will start at 10 a.m. with a social and
lunch will be served after the meeting. Look forward to see-

Another way for swimmers
to escape is to let the rip cur-
rent pull them away from
shore until the current weak-
ens and then begin to swim
toward the shore at an angle
away from the rip current.
Do not get caught in a rip
current while trying to save
someone else. Throw them a
flotation device and get help
immediately.
The most important thing
to do for protection is to learn
to swim and know one's own


ability to swim in ocean wa-
ters and strong currents.
When swimming with
small children, keep them
close to the shore line and in
sight at all times, it only
takes a minute for a child to
be knocked down by even the
smallest wave and pulled out
by a current.
Walton County officials
urge visitors to enjoy a fun
and safe vacation on the most
beautiful beaches in the
world.

Larry Jones. "It is important
that it {the language) is con-
sistent with how it is ap-
plied."
Commissioner Ro Cuchens
also pushed for more specific
language and Commissioner
Scott Brannon commented
that "some compatibility cri-
teria was unclear and subject
to interpretation."
Blackshear said she was
confidant the ordinance as
'written would solve the prob-
lems they were written to ad-
dress.
Area residents Ken Shan-
non and Bob Hudson ques-
tioned exactly what consti-
tutes "increased traffic gen-
eration beyond the existing
traffic patterns in the sur-
rounding neighborhood" and
"that the proposed develop-

middle of the road.
After more than 40 minutes
of discussion, Commissioner
Cindy Meadows moved to
adopt the ordinance as writ-
ten providing there was an
option to tweak the ordi-
nance as problems of inter-
pretation arose.
The motion failed to carry.
A request was made to re-
draft the ordinance and
present it to the commission-
ers at a later date.
Blackshear protested say-
ing she would then be re-
quired to advertise another
public meeting and the ad-
vertising budget for her de-
partment was already
stressed.
County attorney David
Hallman said the only legal
option in this circumstance
was for Meadows to with-
draw her motion as if it had
never been made and an-
other motion proposed to
table the discussion until the
Oct. 25 meeting of the com-
missioners. Meadows then
withdrew the motion and the
ordinance was tabled.

ATTN JUST REDUCED FOR QUICK SALE this is
a very nice piece of development property in the heart
of Freeport. The zoning is R-2 (8 unit per acre) and
there is a creek bordering the back of the property. There
is a home on the property but the value is in the acre-
age. The property is 1/2 mile down Pope which is dirt
and the sewage line would have to be ran that far as
well. There is city water up to the property. Also, there
is a 50 ft easement to the property.
*** Also note that seller may split the property if your
buyer does not want the full 10 acres.
