Sheriff arrests


member of retail


theft ring in Walton,


Okaloosa counties


By BRUCE COLLIER
Walton County Sheriff's
deputies have arrested one of
what may be as many as six
persons suspected of operat-
ing a retail theft ring in Wal-
ton and Okaloosa counties.
William Cuartas, 40, of
Davenport, FL, was arrested
on October 5, while unload-
ing a van filled with stolen
merchandise. He is being
held in Walton Countyjail on,
a $100,000.00 bind.
Cuartas was allegedly pre-
paring to ship the stolen
items to addresses in New
York and in central Florida.
Deputies seized some
1,191 items of clothing, with
an estimated value of of ap-
proximately $50,187.00.
According to a report from
public information officers
'Lt. Frank Owens and Donna
!Shank, the ring had targeted
some 16 different retail
stores in the two-county'area.
Ring members apparently
would enter the stores in
groups. One person would
pulcihase or otherwise dis-
tract store employees, while
the others bagged up mer-
chandise. Items were held in
front of security cameras to
prevent filming of the thefts.


MICHAEL ADKINSON was sworn-in as DeFuniak Springs' new City Marshall by Mayor
Harold Carpenter during the las regular session of the DeFuniak Springs City Council



Family relation had no


bearing on decision to


hire new police chief


By BRUCE COLLIER
Several members of the
DeFuniak Springs City
Council have stated that
their decision to vote on
whether or not to hire Mike
Adkinson Jr. as chief of po-
lice was not influenced by the
fact that Adkinson is the
nephew of city attorney
Clayton Adkinson.

Council member Roy
McLeod, who did not vote for
Adkinson, stated that he had
been introduced to Adkinson
at City Hall some time before
the candidate's final inter-
view before the council.
McLeod said that he was
aware of the relationship.
Council member James
Huffman said that he was
aware of the family relation-
ship,but that it had "no bear-


ing", on his vote. Huffman
voted to recommend that
Adkinson be hired.
Each of the three candi-
dates, Dennis Ward, Clifton
Bell and Adkinson, were in-
terviewed by the council, on
the same day.
Each candidate was pro-
vided with a list of ten ques-
tions that would be asked of
all of them, in turn. Coun-
cil members were permitted
to ask follow-up questions
after each candidate's re-
sponse.
The questions asked dealt
with the candidate's idea of
the police department's fun-
damental duty, his manage-
ment style, how he would
balance conflicting commu-
nity demands, sensitivity to
minorities, media relations,
handling ethical dilemmas,


the role of the police depart-
ment in aiding other city de-
partments, current trends in-
fluencing police operations,
each candidate's most diffi-
cult professional decision,
and his main objective, if ap-
pointed to the position.
Adkinson was not ques-
tioned on his family relation-
ship, nor was it discussed in
final deliberations before vot-
ing.
Each council member was
asked to rank his choices in
order of preference. The can-
didate receiving three or
more first-rank votes would
win the recommendation.

On the first ballot,
Adkinson was ranked first by
four council members, win-
ning him the council's rec-
ommendation.


SOME $50,000.00 IN STOLEN MERCHANDISE, recov-
ered from retail theft ring..


In addition to the van, the
ring may be using a "dark
color, full size BMW, with an
unknown tag."
Shank estimated that in
addition to Cuartas, as many
as six persons may be in-
volved in the ring.
Persons with information
on this ring are asked to call
William McCormick at Wal-
ton County Sheriff's Office,
267-2000. Persons wishing to
give anonymous information
may call Crime Stoppers at
622-2057.

Railroad crossings are

Walton chamber gets



a jump on new year


By DOTTY NIST
"We are so blessed to be
here," said Rick Severance,
new chairman of the Walton
County Chamber of Com-
merce.
Severance was welcomed
into his new leadership posi-
tion on Oct. 7 by Rob Neale,
outgoing chairman of the
chamber, and a large gather-
ing of members at the annual
meeting, which was cel-
ebrated with a "Happy New
Year" theme, complete with
confetti and noisemakers.
Hailing from Seaside, Sev-


RICK SEVERANCE


erance has been associated
with the chamber board of
directors for five years.
Neale revealed that the.
chamber had ended the
2004-5 fiscal year with 173
business members. With ev-
ery business that joins the
organization, it becomes a
stronger voice capable of ac-
complishing more and more,
he noted.
He spoke oftwo important
goals reached during the past
year, including a successful
golf tournament and the
chamber's third annual
Showcase Auction and Art of
Dining, which raised $15,000
for the organization.
Angus Andrews installed
the 2005-06 officer ard direc-
tors: Severance, Chairman
Elect Leigh Grantham of
CHELCO, Beach Vice-Chair
Mike Stange of Sandestin
Resort, Lake/Bay Vice-Chair
Angus Andrews, Treasurer
Lori Kelley of O'Sullivan-
Creel and Neale, past chair-
man.
Local realtor Colleen
Riddle was recognized as vol-
unteer of the year.
The chamber saluted Mike
Shoults and Kevin Veach,
owners of Southern Resorts
Vacation Rentals, as Small


Business Person of the year.
Under their two leadership,
Southern Resorts has be-
come one of Walton County's
top ten vacation rental com-
panies, with offices in Blue
Mountain Beach and in
neighboring counties.
Committed to being the
"most; caring" company of its
kind in the Panhandle,
Southern Resorts furnishes
an emcee for the chamber
lunches, Ted Corcoran. The
company participates in a
number of chamber commit-
tees, in the South Walton
Tourist Development
Council's Autumn Tides com-
mittee, and with other com-
munity projects such as the
American Cancer Society's
Relay for Life.
Severance was excited
about the chamber's new
tiered membership struc-
ture, which will allow mem-
bers to choose from several
membership levels to align
the organization's services to
their specific needs.
Dawn Moliterno was wel-
comed as new president/

SAfter getting no response
from local CSX railroad offi-
cials, DeFuniak Springs City
Councilman Roy McLeod is
taking his cas to the top.

SIn a letter dated Sept. 21
atd addressed to CSX Corpo-
ration CEO M.J. Ward,
M cLeod wrote regarding
crossings at 6th Street and
2$th Street.
"To date," he said, "we
have been unable to get a re-


sponse from the district offi-
cials. I consider both of these
crossings to be hazardous to
vehicle traffic. Also, one of my'
constituents living near the
25th Street crossing swears
one of the rails is lifting up
when a train passes over it. I
have not witnessed that, but
I do know that both of them
have reached the point that,
even at the speed of 5 m.p.h.,
it will jar your teeth."
The city of DeFuniak
Springs has an agreement


with CSX that provides that
the company will maintain
the crossings in exchange for
a reduced number of cross-
ings in the city limits.

At the most recent meet-
ing of the DeFuniak Springs
City Council, City Manager
Kim Presnell reported that
she had been contacted by a
CSX official who agreed to
schedule a meeting. However,
no date for the meeting has
been set at this time.

a potential hazard for DeFuniak Springs motorists.

Frazier
awarded with
certificate for
heroic act
David A. Frazier of DeFu-
niak Springs, FL, was
awarded with a certificate of
appreciation.
On Oct. 10, Mr. Frazier
jumped into Lake DeFuniak
after seeing that a young
boy, fishing from the pier,
had fallen in. Fraier brought
the boy to safety and to the
waiting arms of his mother.
The City of DeFuniak
Springs would again like to
thank him for his heroic act.

Haz-Mat
Collection
a success
Haz-Mat Collection Day
was a huge success according
to Walton County Solid Waste
Manager Rusty Floyd.
"The response from the
community was fantastic, we
collected over 2,000 gallons of
old paint, 500 pounds of pes-
ticides, 200 pounds of old com-
puter parts, 565 gallons of oil
and 110 batteries," said Floyd.
Over 11.84 tons of old tires
were collected between the
landfill site in DeFuniak
Springs and the South Walton
Mosquito Control Office site.
During Haz-Mat Collection
Days, which are held twice a
year, residents are given the
opportunity to bring in haz-
ardous materials to be dis-
posed of properly by the
trained employees of the solid
waste department.
Protecting the citizens of
Walton County and our envi-
ronment against the effects of
hazardous materials is the
main goal of the Walton
County Solid Waste Depart-
ment.
The next Haz-Mat Collec-
tion Day will be held in the
spring of 2006.

Waste Department: at 892-

Editor's Comment



Viewing the future through the past


By RONKELLEY

From the number of letters I received this week in re-
sponse to recent editorials, it's clear that lots of our readers
enjoy reminiscing about those wonderful halcyon days of
the past.
Several people wrote to describe the locations of several
local stores and businesses that came and went before I was
even born (which was back when dinosaurs still roamed the
earth).
Others wrote to say that they, too, had once worked for
the Herald or.Breeze. One friend,,Marian Godwin, brought
in a Herald clipping that showed her as a young girl. The
accompanying article discussed the wisdom of newspapers
that hired young people, including school children, as a way
of creating a steady supply of good employees, insuring con-
tinued prosperity and maintaining high standards of jour-
nalism.
Some things never change.
I am especially proud of organizations and individuals that
are seeking to preserve and restore the best parts of our
history.
The Chautauqua Hall of Brotherhood Foundation contin-
ues to make slow but steady progress toward building a new
and better auditorium to replace the one that was destroyed
by Hurricane Eloise in 1975.
Sharon Wilharm and husband, Fred, are spearheading a
project that allows.local students to interview longtime resi-



Editor,
I have two children who attend Paxton Elementary and
High School. I, like other parents became concerned when
we learned our children's health might be at risk from the
past bat infestation. I and my husband attended the "Spe-
cial Bat School Board Meeting" held on September 29, 2005
and I prepared myself before hand researching facts on bats
and Histoplasmosis.
I no longer feel my children's health is at risk. If they
were exposed to the Histoplasmosis disease, they show no
signs now. although my children were sicker than normal
last year, but two families were not so lucky, their children
may have serious lifetime problems. These children and their
families need the support of our school board members and
they need to take responsibility for these children's pain and
suffering.
I feel all our children's health was compromised by the
superintendent's actions during her direction when the prob-
lem became known to her. Her delay while consorting with
her experts is inexcusable. She never advised to test the drop-
pings of the bats during the time when droppings were
present. I'm sure her experts explained this was important.
She claims because the droppings no longer exist, there is
no need to test now. Well, I think the need was there last
year and overlooked.
Our kids were sick; the parents who have kids who were
exposed know. We know our kids stayed home or missed
more days of school thanthey normally did. My son has got-
ten certificates in the past for never missing a day of school,
last year he missed more days from school than he ever did.
He was also taking classes in these rooms of concern.
But there are other concerns my children complain of from
their trying days of school. The construction going on at
Paxton has hindered problems in the middle of this bat madr
ness. Our once grade "A" school falls to a "C" rated school in
one year. Bats, construction, demolishing, has taken its toll
on our children and our superintendent, Carlene H. Ander-
son, seems to just want to cover her tracks.
I have written a letter to Governor Jeb Bush and I encour-
Sage every parent and loved one of a child who has suffered
through Paxton Elementary and High School's past year's
troubles to do the same. Superintendent Carlene H. Ander-
son must take responsibility for her actions.

the annual history fair is a must-see event. This year,prom-
ises to be especially full of new, never-before-seen exhibits
and attractions, so I urge you to attend.
Another piece of our past worth saving is the old
Eucheeanna School House, now a community center. A group
of local volunteers formed a board a few years ago in order
to seek funding for repairs and restorations for one of the
oldest surviving structures in Walton County. Their success
saved the building for generations to come.
I was recently talking to board members Wayne Brown
and Pam Odom, who said they are looking for new mem-
bers to join the board to help with some exciting new projects.
I assured them that there are plenty of local residents that
would welcome the chance to work on such a worthwhile
endeavor if they know they are needed.
Hats off to people like this and to organizations who rec-
ognize the value of preserving our history in order to build
a better tomorrow.
Some things never change.
Those to whom our future is entrusted would do well to
remember ourpast. It was George Santayana who said,
"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to
repeat it."
With this in mind, I have been disappointed to see that
county and city governments seem to be unconcerned with
the appearance of nepotism with regard to recent hires. Rela-
tives of some high-ranking local government officials have.
been hired for administrative positions, a practice that has
undone more than one politician, here and in other places.
In fact, most governmental boards run shrieking in the op-
posite direction as fast as they can when charges of nepo-
tism threaten to rear its ugly head.
The problem is that such hires, whether they involve broth-
ers, daughters,,nephews or other relations, tend to inad-
vertently cast a shadow of distrust and suspicion around
the new employees, most of whom are decent, honest, hard-
working individuals, However, just like that character in
the old Lil'Abner comic strip, a dark cloud hangs over them
no matter where they go or what they do.
It's not fair to them. It's not fair to the people thatwork
for them or with them. Most of all, it's not fair to the public,
'vho trust that their elected officials will not only avoid any
wrongdoing,,but will also avoid the appearance of any wrong-
doing. A wise man knows there's not much difference be-
tween the two.
It is an unquestionable fact that the people of Walton
County have long suffered under the yoke of what is com-
monly called 'good-old-boy politics.' Some think we still do
and, in an era where mistrust of politicians is particularly
well-earned, it seems foolish to the point of insanity for gov-
ernmental bodies to engage in any practice that further
erodes the public trust.
Have our elected officials learned nothing from the past
or is it that they simply do not care? I tell you, truthfully,
that I do not know. However, one sad fact seems clear even
in this 'enlightened age.'
Some things never change.



Dear Editor:

After reading Mr. Charles Adams negative comments about
the Walton County Taxpayers Association and county com-
mission, I feel compelled to set the record straight. Mr.
Adams is misinformed, at best.
The millage reduction on property taxes voted by the county
commission on September 26 does rot reduce the county
budget for FY2006. It does not reduce the money budgeted
for Public Works or for paving roads. Funds are not cut for
the jail and the courthouse.
In fact, the millage reduction equates to an approximate
29 percentincrease in the property tax levy in one year and
approximately $11 million more in county coffers than last
year.
Yes, property values have gone up and people can sell their
houses if they can't pay their taxes. But people who moved
here to make Walton County their home, retirees on fixed
incomes, families with school children and small business
owners, would like to be able to stay here. I believe our gov-
ernment can do quite well with $52 million from property
taxes in the coming year.
As Mr. Adams declares, most of that is generated from
property south of the Bay. That does not mean that prop-
erty owners north of the Bay aren't gaining tax relief as
well. Unlike Mr. Adams, the Taxpayers Association repre-
sents all of Walton County. It is time to get over this north/
south mentality.
Without the millage reduction, the property tax levy in-
crease would have been 52 percent 'in one year. It would be
nothing less than obscene if the county had not reduced the
millage.
Property values in all of Walton County are going to con-
tinue to increase. As a result, county revenues from prop-
erty taxes will increase and money available to pave roads
will increase. Government is not a profit sharing business
and property taxes should not reflect the real estate mar-
ket.
The school district millage is reduced for FY 2006. County
commissioners did the right thing and are to be commended
for giving property owners a tax break this year.

AK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2005



Dear Editor,

Sounding like Yogi Berra, President Bush gave the best
description of his administration's overall fiscal philosophy
last month. When asked on September 16 how much his
grand program to rebuild the Gulf Coast in the wake of
Hurricane Katrina will cost, he answered, "It's going to cost
whatever it's going to cost."
And, boy, will it ever. The current estimate of the amount
of taxpayer money needed to pay for Bush's grand scheme
range from $150 billion to $200 billion. And that's on top of
a $612 billion increase in the overall federal budget since
he took office in 2001. Adding the $62 billion already appro-
priated for Katrina relief puts him in the same big-spend-
ing league as Lyndon Johnson.
The massive cost is just one of the distressing things about
Bush's plan. What's also disconcerting is how it broadens
the scope of the federal government's response to natural
disasters. By doing so he's setting an expensive precedent.
Before Bush's address to the: nation from New Orleans'
Jackson Square, the federal government's usual response
to natural disasters was generally limited to four basic func-
tions as laid out in the 1988 Stafford Act: helping clear de-
bris, providing search-and-rescue assistance to states, pro-
viding.assistance for displaced residents (mainly in the form
of temporary housing assistance and traditional unemploy-
ment benefits), and rebuilding infrastructure such as roads
and bridges.
SBush's new response includes all of those elements-and
a whole lot more. The president is planning to give each
displaced worker $5,000 of taxpayer money forjob training.
He's proposed $2 billion in tax "incentives" to bring busi-
nesses back to the area. Federal taxpayers will also pick up
the tab for the education expenses of all students forced to
relocate, whether they attended private or public school.
Certainly the biggest part of the whole plan is the rebuild-
ing of the Gulf Coast. But that doesn't just mean the infra-
st ructure the federal government has control over. It's likely
an assortment of other things too: from homes and busi-
nesses to shopping malls and parking lots.
Here's the kicker: the president states that the federal
government will pay a "great. majority" of the bills. For all
intents and purposes. Bush has given a blank check to
elected officials in the states affected by the hurricane.
This is a departure from the intent of previous; modern
disaster relief efforts. The Stafford Act specifically calls for
at least 25 percent of the bills to be paid for by states and
localities. The idea that the state should bear at least a frac-
tion of the cost is explicit in the legislation. Throughout the
legislation, states are presumed to commit a "significant
proportion" of the funding. Indeed, under certain circum-
stances the act allows the federal share to be as low as 25
percent.
The federal government can waive the cost-sharing re-
quirement-which it has already done for the first $62 bil-
lion in spending. But doing so creates incentives for gover-
nors and mayors to lard their wish list with nonessential
projects. If state government officials making the request
aren't footing the bill for any of it or a substantial portion of
it, why not ask for federal taxpayers to fund every project
their hearts desire?
Unfortunately, the president isn't trying to slow down what
is likely to become a taxpayer-financed shopping spree. He's
egging it, on. Oh September 20, for instance, the president
urged Mississippi officials to "think bold" when plotting what
demands they are going to make of federal taxpayers.
The White House has used the Stafford Act as a defense
of their grand design by saying they were obligated by law
to provide all of this assistance. While that's true of the ob-
ligations laid out in the Stafford Act, it is not true of a broader
long-term economic recovery assistance of the sort the White
House has proposed. As the Congressional Research Ser-
vice points out in their analysis of the act, "[it] does not
explicitly authorize the President to provide long-term re-
covery assistance to communities."'
The president's blank check mentality has also emboldened
members of Congress to expand their wishlists, too. Farm-
state senators are planning to add crop subsidies to the next
Katrina bill, and senators from northeastern states are hop-
ing to expand the low-income heating assistance program
for constituents who are affected by higher heating oil prices.
Bush is right. This relief effort is going to cost what it's
going to cost. And that's exactly what taxpayers should be
afraid of.

Editor,
In the BCC regular meeting of April 26, 2005, according
to the minutes of that meeting, A Mr. Frank Walker pro-
posed the donation of a 60 foot wide strip of his property
and areas for three small retention ponds (for road runoff) if
the BCC would build a game fence along the right-of-way. A
game fence is much higher than an ordinary field fence and
is made of woven wire, often called hog wire. Also, a "ser-
vice road" was built inside the fence. This service road is a
cleared strip about the width of a vehicle. Since it is inside
the fence, ownership is presumably retained by Mr. Walker.
I have looked at the project and it appears that the 60-
foot of right-of-way included the original dirt road, wlhich I
assume was already owned by the county. It is about 20
steps, each step about three feet, from the edge of the fence
to the opposite ditch, which means that considerably less
than 60 feet was donated. My guess is the actual donation,
that amount from the fence to the nearest ditch, was 16-18
feet.
Brown Road needs paving as does every dirt road in the
county. I am all for paving Brown Road, even though I al-
most never travel it. However, one thing is apparent. Ei-
ther the BCC minutes are incorrect, or the county did not


get the amount of right-of-way it was due, which as a tax-
payer makes me unhappy. If the "service road" is part of the
60-foot donation, why is it fenced inside Mr. Walker's prop-
erty and is retained my him?
Could the county use the extra right-of-way? Probably, if
for nothing else for storage of excess building material. Re-
gardless, if the donation was 60-feet then the county should
have 60-feet.
There is one thing certain. The BCC surely does build an
impassive game fence. Wow!

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2005


Pam Tedesco looks forward

with fond memories of past


'.t!? 7. i.kViI. LYVN

N.,'il.i- succeeds like suc-
cess and while Pam Tedesco
is proud of what she accom-
plished as head of the Wal-
ton County Chamber of Com-
merce, she is looking ahead
to her new position as the ad-
vocate for north Florida
chambers from here all the
way to Jacksonville.
"The Florida Chamber is
an advocacy group for busi-
ness and we work with local
chambers and the local busi-
ness community to make
sure these folks are inter-
ested in the legislative pro-
cess and aware of initiatives
there," she said.
One hot button issue that
seems to surface with every
legislative session is the is-
sue of sales tax. There are
advocates who want to add
tax to newspaper advertis-
ing, legal services, haircuts
and a wide range of services
that are currently sales tax
free. It is Tedesco's job to
make sure businesses are
aware of issues that may af-


feet their ability to succeed in
business.
Tedesco assumed her new
duties at the end of August
after a run of more than six
years with the Walton Cham-
ber. She cites winning two
national awards, bestowed
by outside peer reviews, as
the Nation's Best Chamber in
its size group. "We won in
2001 and 2004. The same
chamber cannot win the
award two consecutive years,
but Walton County was a fi-
nalist in 2003 also. There are
only seven other chamber
groups nationwide who have
won it twice," she says. The
American Chamber of Com-
merce bestows the award and
Walton County won in the
small chamber division. One
other local chamber the
Destin Chamber of Com-
merce-won the same award
in 2005.
Under Tedesco's leader-
ship, membership in the Wal-
ton chamber more than
doubled, another accomplish-
ment she is proud of. "I'm
proud of the membership


numbers, but we're very
proud of the leadership pro-
gram we put in place, which
is an eight month training
program for business lead-
ers. This program is now in
its fifth year. One of our
graduates, Cindy Meadows,
is a Walton County Commis-
sioner.

"This is a new program for
the Florida Chamber,"
Tedesco noted. Tedesco's new
responsibilities include fur-
ther educating the business
community about legislative
issues and urging them to get
involved by working with the
local chambers and making
sure they have the "tools and
resources the Florida Cham-
ber has available for them."
Santa Rosa Beach is where
Tedesco is based and she is
enthusiastic about the new,
challenges of the position.
"I'm loving it. I have always
enjoyed the legislative as-
pects of the job, so to be able
to do it full time is wonderful
and it is something I believe
in strongly.
"It was a tremendous expe-
rience working with the Wal-
ton Chamber of Commerce.
While there I was able to
build the relationships in.
Northwest Florida and make
the contacts I will need to
perform my new duties," she
said.

LOCAL CITIZENS RAISED A STINKabout a longstanding problem with the DeFuniak
Springs sewer system, which led to the closing of a section of Burdick Avenue while repairs
are made.

Sewer problems on Burdick Avenue


By TAMMY KEARCE

The DeFuniak Springs
City Council recently agreed
to close a portion of Burdick
to traffic as a temporary, pre-
cautionary measure. The sec-
tion of Burdick between Sec-
ond Street and Third Street
is located atop a damaged
sewer line, which could be
vulnerable to excessive


weight. The area is easily
detoured by using Quebec
Avenue, located one block
north of Burdick.
Although the city has
opened bidding on the project
of repairing the damaged
line, no estimates have been
forthcoming. "That is prob-
ably because this is going to
be a messy project," said City
Engineer Charles Peters.


"That sewage will have to be
rerouted while the line is
fixed."

City Manager Kim
Presnell is currently commu-
nicating with contracting
firms in order to coordinate
the repair effort and notify-
ing residents in the immedi-
ate vicinity of the temporary
closure.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2005


Brain disorder awareness


Countryside Market Place
of 2005, held on Saturday,
Oct. 1, was sponsored by the
DeFuniak Springs Pilot
Club, Brain Disorder Sup-
port Foundation and Walton
County Anchor Clubs.
Pilot Club member Hilda
Coursey, said, "The purposes
of the Countryside Market
Place are to raise awareness
of brain-related disabilities
and their symptoms, to pro-
mote brain injury preven-
tion, and to provide an atmo-
sphere for families to just
plain have fun!"
The support of the entire
community was in evidence
to make the day a success.
More than 40 local busi-
nesses provided in-kind con-
tributions, gift certificates,
and merchandise as door
prizes, while many local and
state dignitaries honored
their campaign promises "to
serve you" by manning
booths selling boiled peanuts,
ice cream sodas, and hot
dogs.
A wide variety of products
and services were for sale at
more than 20 vendor booths.
For the children, a tricycle
and bicycle rodeo supervised
by local police, and face
painting, pony rides, and
games supervised by the An-
chor Clubs provided lots of
fun. Stage entertainment
included Simply Worship,
Grit & Grace, Tera Newell &
the Dixie Dads, and the Bee
Bops.
Information about brain-
related disorders was woven
throughout the day. For ex-
ample, in order to win one of
the door prizes, attendees lis-
tened to information pre-
sented, found a "Brain
Minder Buddy" (an Anchor
Club member dressed in an
animal costume), and an-
swered a question showing
that he or she had learned
something about epilepsy,
stroke or another brain dis-
order.
To get the attention of
teens, a moving presentation
was made by-a luoal fanIily
about how driving under the
influence had profoundly af-
fected their lives. The pre-


sentation was made between
the teen Battle of the' Bands
and the announcement of the
winner, "Band Needing a
Name".


The sponsors of the event
would like to extend their
heartfelt gratitude to every-
one who helped to make the
day a success.

Gallagher urges "Check out a used car's history"


Tom Gallagher, Florida's
chief financial officer, cau-
tioned Florida's consumers
and auto dealers to beware of
buying used vehicles that
may have originated from
areas flooded by Hurricane
Katrina, and potentially Hur-
ricane Rita. Officials esti-
mate that 350,000 vehicles
were flooded in New Orleans
alone from Hurricane
Katrina, and up to 500,000
vehicles could have sustained
flood damage throughout

Many of these vehicles are
shipped to other states, in-

wholesalers.

"While most states, like
Florida, require vehicle titles
to bear brands of 'flood ve-
hicle' and 'salvage/rebuilt,'
some wholesalers may inten-
tionally transfer titles to
avoid branding since it dimin-
ishes a vehicle's value," said

Gulf Power employees continue hurricane relief


The names have changed -
Ivan, Dennis, Katrina, Rita--
but Gulf Power Company and
its employees have continued
to reach out to hurricane vic-
tims. along the Gulf Coast.
And, although they were
part of a record-setting elec-
tric power restoration effort
along the Mississippi Gulf
Coast, Gulf Power employees
are doing more than just re-
storing electric service.
"Our help often goes be-
yond just getting the lights
back on," John Hutchinson,
company spokesman said.
"When we go into neighbor-
hoods we see the devastation.
We see the broken poles, but
we also see the broken hearts.
Our employees want to do
more than just restore elec-
tricity. We want to restore

The Freeport Planning De-
partment has announced a
series of workshops, open to
the public, to be held in Oc-
tober, November, and Decem-
ber.
The workshops have the
support of the Freeport Town
Planners, the Freeport Busi-
ness Association, and the
Planning Board.
The workshops have three


hope."
Hutchinson said employees
on numerous occasions have
taken up collections in a hard
hat to present to a hurricane
victim. And recently workers
chipped in and bought a
birthday cake and a new bi-
cycle for a homeless 5-year-
old boy in Gulfport, MS, who
had told the lines crews the
day before that "tomorrow is
going to be my worst birthday
ever."

Employees have collected
and delivered school supplies
to Resurrection Catholic
School in Moss Point, MS.
The school, severely damaged
by Katrina, lacked the basic
materials needed to reopen.
Gulf Power employees
adopted the school, collected


goals. The first is to "identify
and preserve the history of
Freeport." The second is to
"identify and enhance the
character of Freeport." Num-
ber three is to "create travel
routes which are attractive,
inviting and pedestrian
friendly."
The first workshop, "Intro-
duction/ Goals and Objec-
tives," will be held on Thurs-


supplies and raised $1000 to
help the school children get
back into the classroom.
Employees also collected
sheets, towels and bedding
and delivered them to Cen-
tral Baptist Church in Crest-
view where evacuees were
being housed. Other employ-
ees volunteered at an evacuee
center in Panama City Beach
and helped displaced victims
find financial aid and hous-
ing along with food and wa-
ter.

Gulf Power employees have
also reached out to help co-
workers with neighboring
Mississippi Power Company
where more than 80 employ-
ees lost everything they
owned in Katrina. More than
$31,800 has been collected


day, October 20.
The second,"Historic Struc-
tures and Events/Freeport's
Character," will be held on
Thursday, November 3.
The third, "Landscaping/
Architectural Elements/
Signage," will be held on
Thursday, November 17.
The final workshop. "Wrap-
up," will be held on Thursday,
December 1.


VA offers tips for National Breast

Cancer Awareness month


October is National Breast-
Cancer Awareness Month.
The chance that a woman
will be diagnosed with breast
cancer over her lifetime is
one in eight. However, many
men are diagnosed with
breast cancer, too. The U.S.
Department -of Veterans Af-
fairs (VA) continues conduct-
ing research into breast can-
cer to discover potential
causes and to develop better
.diagnostics aiind treatments
for this disease.: :
Mammograms every year
for women aged 40-70, espe-
cially for. high-risk women
who have had a first-degree
relative diagnosed with
breast cancer, are encour-


aged in order to help detect
breast cancer at the earliest
and most treatable stages.
However, a VA study urges
discreet use ofmammograms
for women older than 70, as
the radiation exposure from
mammograms may outweigh
the potential benefits for eld-
erly women in very poor
health.
Mammograms may detect
cancer, but they do not pre-
vent cancer. While the causes
of breast cancer are still un-
known, here are a few tips
that may help reduce the risk
of developing the disease:
Don't smoke, exercise regu-
larly, and maintain a healthy
weight. Studies show that


excess weight may increase
the risk of breast cancer.
'Eat fresh fruits and veg-
etables daily. The fiber, anti-
oxidants, and other nutrients
found in fresh fruits and veg-
etables may help reduce the
risk of breast cancer and
some other cancers.
*Conduct self-breast ex-
aminations monthly. Seventy
percent of all breast cancers
are found through self-breast
exams.
*Reduce the negative
stress in your life. Keeping a
positive, relaxed outlook may
be beneficial for the immune
system, therefore reducing
the risk of some diseases.


Fire prevention week


focuses on safety in the home


Most fatal fires happen in
homes and at least half of
those are preventable, ac-
cording to statistics from the
State Fire Marshal's Office.
Having a working smoke
alarm is a must when it
comes to fire safety, but
equally important are prac-
ticing an escape plan and
avoiding fire risks..
Governor Bush and the
Cabinet, passed a resolution
designating this week as
Fire Prevention Week.
Last year, 415 people died
in Florida and 790 were in-
jured due to fires. While the
very young and the very old
are typically the most vulner-
able to death or injury from
fire, the highest number of
deaths in 2004 was among
men between the ages of 41
and 50.
The leading causes of fires
in homes are cooking, heat-
ers, electrical overloads,
worn or damaged wiring,
smoking and candles. In
fact, the number of fires
caused by candles.doubled
nationwide between 1980
and 2002, when 130 people
died and 1,350 were reported
injured as a result of candle
fires. In Florida last year,
candle fires were blamed for
two deaths and 42 injuries.
The National Fire Protec-


VISA S


tion Association has made,
"Use Candles With Care" the
theme of its national efforts
during Fire Prevention
Week.
Statistics show the major-
ity of candle fires begin in a
bedroom after the occupant
has fallen asleep. Common
causes of candle fires are
combustible material coming
too close to the candle, the
candle being left unattended,
or someone (often a child)
playing with a candle. The
number of candle fires in
homes has been noted to
double in December. .
Burn candles in a sturdy
holder and keep them away
from children, pets and cur-
tains.
Use flashlights, not
candles, in jack-o-lanterns.
Use a flashlight instead of
candles during a power out-
age.
Keep an approved fire ex-
tinguisher in the kitchen..
Do not use frayed exten-
sion cords and do not place
extension cords under a rug
or near a heat source.
Do not overload electrical
outlets or extension cords.
If you smoke, do not smoke
in bed and never walk away
from a lighted cigarette.
Keep ovens, broiling pans
and kitchen exhaust fans


clean.
With small children in the
house, turn handles away
from the front of the stove.
When frying foods on stove,
do NOT leave the stove un-
attended.
Do not wear loose or flow-
ing sleeves when cooking.
If a fuse or circuit breaker
should blow or keeps trip-
ping, find out why.
During Fire Prevention
Week, Gallagher is asking
Floridians to:
*Plan escape routes from
every room and floor to an
outdoor meeting place. Be
sure everyone in the family
knows and practices them. If
there is only one exit from the
upper floor, .have slides or
rope ladders available and
.practice proper use.
*Install smoke detectors
on every floor and in hall-
ways leading to bedrooms.
*Test smoke alarms and
change smoke alarm batter-
ies when changing the clocks
for daylight savings time in
the spring and fall months.
The State Fire Marshal's
Office offers seasonal and
holiday fire safety tips on its
Web page at www.fldfs.com/
sfm. There also are pages for
kids, parents and teachers at
http://www.fldfs.com/SFM/

many people had invested
in. To me personally, it was
even more than that it was
about not letting the children
down.
Today, I feel less anxious
because we've got a tremen-
dous team of folks who have
been working hard the past
five years to make sure chil-
dren and families have the
best possible tools to over-
come the trauma associated
with child physical and
sexual abuse.
Are we perfect? No. Have
we let some folks down?
Probably. But we have never
lost sight of wanting the best
for the children in our com-
munity and when the day is
done that is what really
counts. We have met many
milestones, but we have
many more to go. The CAC
will never be finished until
the day child abuse is eradi-
cated from our society.
The Children's Advocacy
Center will be hosting sev-
eral events to celebrate its
5th birthday. On Friday, Oc-
tober 21, from 2 p.m. 4 p.m.,
the center will host a birth-
day party along with all the
trimmings cake, punch,
and great refreshments
made by our very own volun-
teers. At 3 p.m. that day, a


ribbon ceremony will take
place to unveil the first phase
of the children's garden. The
public is invited. Please stop
by, take a tour of the center,
and learn how you, too, can
help stop the hurt for child
victims. The center is located
at 401 McEwen Drive,
Niceville.
On Thursday, October 27,
from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the
First United Methodist
Church in Niceville, the cen-
ter will host its first commu-
nity education forum, "Keep-
ing Our Kids Safe." Profes-
sionals will present topics on
general rules to keep kids
safe, internet safety, self es-
teem in children, normal
sexual behavior in children,
and bullying in school. There
will be a question and answer
session at the conclusion of
the forum.
Teachers, day care provid-
ers, guidance counselors,
parents are encouraged to
attend. There is no charge for
the event and babysitting'
will be provided at no cost.

MRIWLTURE
Wm1E m


By ROBIN NEWTON
His office is filled with
farming magazines, school
papers, and pigs made of
every kind of craft material.
The pigs are from his stu-
dents, past and present. On
the wall, there are plaques
and certificates chronicling
just a fraction of his 39
years of teaching thirty
nine years!
Odon Russell loves chil-
dren. It shows whenever
the conversation turns to
kids. He smiles, his eyes
light up. It is obvious why
he chose teaching as his
profession. Kids... all ages.
They make it all worthwhile
for Odon.
After teaching in Quincy,
and then at Walton High, he
came home to Paxton, to
teach Agriculture where he
attended school. Mr. John
Baldwin had been Odon's
Agriculture teacher and
Odon replaced him at
Paxton School. How proud
Mr. Baldwin must be to
know that one of his stu-
dents has followed in his
footsteps. Odon feels very
honored to have one of his
former students, Mike
Anderson, to be presently
serving as his principal.
At Paxton .School, stu-
dents are introduced to
Agriculture in the. eighth
grade. Those who do not
take band for the entire
year study Agriculture with
Mr. Russell for one semes-
ter. This class is just a sam-
pling of what is to come. In
this first class, they explore
the history of agriculture,
agriculture throughout the
world, "parliamentary pro-
cedure", and career opportu-
nities in this field.
Students in Odonu's 9th
grade class get a full year of
Animal Science including
breeds, judging, animal
quality selection, soil, plants
and woodworking tools.
Advanced Animal
Science is for 10th 12th
grade students. This class
includes more than what
most people might realize.
Odon teaches production,
pastures and hays, MIG and
TIG welding, acetylene
welding, electrical wiring,
plasma cutting, carpentry
(construction), sheet metal,
and machine/equipment
maintenance and repair.
Farmers do so much more
than raise animals and
grow hay. They have to take
care of everything that
might come along in the
course of a day. It can be
anything from changing a
water pump on a tractor to
repairing fences. Odon's stu-
dents learn it all. At the pre-
sent time, students are in
the process of fabricating a
portable pen for feeder pigs.
This year Odon is teach-
ing a new course in
Landscaping covering the
major topics as Landscape
Design, Landscape
Construction and
Landscape Maintenance.
Students will draw a com-
plete landscape plan for a
home, business or a church
of their choice. The class
will use majority of the
drafting tools that are used
in industry to complete
their project.


Any farmer knows it
takes more than just "know
how" to be successful.
Farming is hard work and
has to be profitable. The Ag
class at Paxton is well
acquainted with the hard
work aspect of farming.
One of their tasks is to
assist in the planting and
harvesting of hay.
,The hay fields are
planted with a no till plant-
ing to intercede oats and rye
grass in the fall. Then, in
the spring, when Bermuda
grass comes up in those
fields, the result is a high
quality mix of Bermuda
grass, oats, and rye. The'
hay is cut and baled in May,
and enough is kept for the
cows owned by the school,
and the rest is sold. The
money is put directly back
into the Ag program.
One might think that
teaching Ag would be
enough to fill anyone's day.
That is, someone who does
not know Odon. He is also
in charge of the FFA
(Future Farmers of
America) program at
Paxton. Students who want
to keep an animal on site
have to pay dues and be
members of FFA. There are
currently 24 students on
contract with the FFA.
Beef, swine, and hay are the
three programs offered.
Sows on site are bred by
either the herd boar or arti-
ficial insemination and the
offspring not used for the
swine program are sold. The
pigs from the FFA program
at Paxton are highly valued
and sought after. Putnam
County buys pigs each year.
For the last two years, pigs
sold to students in
Pensacola finished as Grand
and Reserve Champions at
a Hog Show.
The swine program pro-
vides the pigs, feed, and
facility to house everything.
The students feed and care
for the pigs and clean the
pens. Each student is
allowed to have sponsors (or
add-ons) for their pig. The
amount of sponsorships can-
not exceed $200 total.
Some of the kids pur-
chase the pigs (on contract)
and then take them home to
raise. When the pig is sold
at the Hog Sale during the
Walton County Fair, the
original purchase price is
then paid to the FFA. Odon
encourages those wanting to
purchase 'their pigs to do so
when the pigs are approxi-
mately 35 pounds. The
price of $1 per pound is
decreased slightly with
heavier pigs, but the most
economical time to buy is
around the 35 pound
weight.
This brings us to where
folks outside of Paxton have
gotten to know Odon. He is
THE hog man for the
Walton County Fair. He
takes care of the Hog Sale
and is on hand to watch his
students perform in the Hog
Show.
Odon holds a workshop
for kids to teach them how
to "show" their pigs. Anyone
who has ever watched the
Hog Show at the Fair,
knows the kids' behavior is
nothing if not unusual.


AG CLASS hay field.


Kids showing hogs always
have one hand behind their
backs. Why? They hold a
brush in that hidden hand,
keeping it ready to groom
the pig if it should lie down
for even a second. The free
hand holds a show stick, or
"flapper", Which gently
coaxes the pig, keeping it
between the student and
the judge at all times. They
are always making eye con-
tact with the judge, never
allowing the pig to obscure
their line of sight.
Students are responsible
for the care and grooming of


their pig during the week of
the Fair. All premiums and
prizes awarded and the
sponsorships go directly to
the student; At the Hog
Sale, FFA students share
the amount of the winning
bid with the FFA, with 60%
going to the student.
While it is true that
Odon goes to the school to
look after the animals,
never missing a day, he also
has a life outside of the
school. He and his wife,
Marsha, have raised three
fine young women., Vicki,

the oldest, lives in Corpus
Christie and works for
Franklin Graham with the
Billy Graham Evangelistic
Association. Her position
has taken her all over the
United States and to foreign
countries.
Daughter Becky has a
degree in marketing and
works in the corporate
world in Crestview. She has
provided Marsha and Odon
with their only grandchild, a
granddaughter.
Donna is a recent
University of Florida gradu-
ate with a degree in archi-
tecture. As her senior pro-
ject she did a revitalization
plans for the city of Florala,
Alabama. Hopefully that
document will assist the city
in obtaining grants. She is
employed by a Landscape
Architecture firm in
Jacksonville.


Odon balances family,
school, and FFA like a
trained acrobat. His heart-
felt concern for the children
of today is genuine. His
goal each year is to work
with the students in every
,area of agriculture possible -
from planting to repairing,
pig raising to water pump
replacement, just to insure
that his students experience
a "touch of success."
Come out to the Walton
County Fair this year and
meet this gentle man who
has devoted his life to chil-
dren. Odon will be there
during the Hog Show on,
Tuesday evening and the
Hog Sale on Thursday eve-
ning. The Fair dates are
October 17-22 and more

The First Apistolic Church,
formally the First United
Pentecostal Church, had its
humble beginnings in DeFu-
niak Springs in 1920, when
the city was much younger
and smaller. Founded in
early 1920 by Minnie
McBroom on the corner of
Orange Avenue and 20th
Street, the congregation be-
gan small but has maintained
its identity for the past 85
years.
Minnie McBroom was a
dynamic speaker, ahead of
her time in her passion and
zeal to do a work for God. She
had traveled all over the
south in the days when you
just stopped in a city and set
up a tent, or constructed what
was known as a "brush arbor"
meeting, and taught the
great truths out of the Bible.
Today's church, still in the
same location after 85 years,
has some of the McBroom
family attending still in its
congregation.
There have been 14 pastors
during the church's existence
and many citizens of DeFu-
niak Springs will still remem-
ber their names. Begun by
Minnie McBroom, Rev. Lyles
came next, followed by Rev.
Warner, Rev. McIlhenny, Rev.
Cy Lawson, Rev. J.D.
Childress, Rev. J.C. O'Neal,
Rev. R.C. Casselberry, Rev.
James White, Rev. Michael
Seals, Rev. H.T. Adcox, and
Rev Whidden. Rev. Carl


Livesay replaced Rev.
Whidden and was the pastor
for 28 years. The congrega-
tion asked Rev. David W.
King and his family to replace
Rev. Livesay upon his retire-
ment and has now pastored
the church for the past five
years. Rev. King and his fam-
ily have been very active in
the community.
The First Apostolic Church
is a. member of the United
Pentecostal Church, Incorpo-
rated (UPCI) based in St.
Louis, MO. The UPCI is an
international organization
with 4,142 churches and
8,801 licensed ministers. It
is also located in 170 other
nations with 22,881 licensed
ministers with 28,351
churches and meeting places,
571 missionaries, and a for-
eign constituency of over
three million, making a total
worldwide constituency of
more than 4,036,945 people.
Thq First Apostolic Church
extend their appreciation and
gratitude to all those who
have had a part of their 85
years in DeFuniak Springs.
To celebrate the 85th church
anniversary and the 5th pas-
toral anniversary of the Rev.
David W. King family, special
services will be held this Fri-
day, Saturday, and Sunday,

'he Tather




in heaven


By Dr. Robert M. Jaye

The Lord's Prayer begins
with the realization that, for
the disciple of Jesus Christ,
the captain of this world is
His Father. In Matthew 6:9
He is called upon as our Fa-
ther "which art in heaven."
When Russian cosmonaut


returned to earth from space,
he said that he had seen nei-
ther angels nor God. But
when then Colonel John
Glenn returned from orbit, he
said, "The God I pray to is not
so small that I expected to see
Him in space."
To many people God is like
the Lone ranger who is stand-


ing around somewhere ready
to hop into our lives when we
need Him. Others view Him
as "and old man up stairs"
whose legs do not permit Him
to come down too often. Even
others question the inten-
tions of God by asking, "If
God is so loving, why does He
permit evil to exist?" Perhaps
we should remember what
Job said in chapter 2, verse
10, "Shall we receive good at
the hand.of God, and shall we
not receive evil?" And the last
of 1:21, "The Lord gave, and
the Lord hath taken away;
blessed be the name of the
Lord."
God is present in heaven
and earth. He is called "the
possessor of heaven and
earth" (Genesis 14:19-22).
God made the heaven and
earth, the sea and all that is
in them (Psalm 146:6). God
is called "The high and lofty
One that inhabiteth eternity,
whose name is Holy" (Isaiah
57:16).
Mankind can never leave
God's presence in this life.


We live in the presence of the
God who is kind to all, and


who loves His people in such only begotten Son to die for
a manner that He sent His their salvation.

Bulldogs still in play-off bid


By CHUCK HINSON
It was a close game and
even the Freeport team may
have had their doubts they
could pull it out, but they did
and came home with a 14-13,
come-from-behind victory.
It came down to sophomore
running back Joey Siebert
who took an option pitch and
ran in for the two-point con-
version to take the one-point
lead over the Royals with
3:40 seconds reamining on
the clock. His play kept the


FHS Bulldogs (3-1, 2-1) in
the play-offs for the District
1-A title.
It was the only lead that
the Bulldogs had throughout
the entire game.
The Royals scored first
scored due to a Freeport er-
ror, a fumbled punt that was
recovered by Jay and set
them up for their first score.
The Royals (1-5, 1-3) took
control the second half and
drove the ball 60 yards in
eight plays to throw another


six points on the board.
But it came down to the
missed Jay afterpoint that
turned the game around.
After trying to regroup and
settle down, Freeport began
to play and stayed strong for
the remainder of the game.
Stephen Mabry took the
ball up the field for Freeport
and then quarterback Lloyd
Anderson connected with
Josh Thomas .who broke
through the Jay line and
scored the Bulldogs' first
touchdown of the night. The


Bulldogs' first two-point con-
version failed, and they
trailed 13-6.
But the Bulldogs determi-
nation prevailed and in the
final quarter, they drove the
ball down the field after
starting on their 48 yard-
line. After getting down to
the Jay five-yard line, An-
derson smashed through the
Jay line, scored the touch-
down and set up the game
wining two-point conversion
for the Bulldogs.

to play our best to move on to
the state level. Everyone but
Timmons was on the squad
last year. We have been work- "
ing real hard, getting ready for "f-WTV7_1*_
this district tournament on ,.- ", .
our home course." .

girl's team in the district to ad-
vance to regional play, though

Something to howl about


By ROBIN NEWTON

Nanook wants everyone to
know what is going on next
week. October 16-22 is Na-
tional WolfAwareness Week.
The wolf population is being
threatened all over the world,
including right here in the
United States. In 1974, the
US Fish and Wildlife Service
in the southeastern United
States initiated efforts to pre-
serve as many red wolves as
possible. Red wolves were de-
clared extinct in 1980, but
those captured during the
1974 program were enough'
to begin to repopulate the
species.
The goals of Wolf Aware-
ness Week are just how it
sounds. Supporters want to
raise the awareness of every-
one about the plight of wolves
in the wild and to explain the
role of the wolf, as a preda-
tor, plays in a healthy planet.
This is a crucial time in the
reintroduction and protec-
tion of wolves.
The wolf was all but exter-
minated from most of its
habitats by the early 1900s.
There were once at least
thirty different subspecies of
wolf. Most have become ex-
tinct and only about five sub-
species survive today.
The Endangered Species
Act and conservation groups
have successfully reintro-
duced the wolf into the wild
in the United States. Some
wolves are endangered, while
others are considered to be
threatened. Endangered
means a species is considered
in danger of extinction in its
habitat, and threatened
means a species may become
endangered in the foresee-
able future. The loss of habi-
tat and intolerance by hu-
mans are the leading factors
in the endangered species
status.
The gray wolf lives in the
northern latitudes around
the world, while thereB'wolf
lives only in North America.
Wolves range in color from
red, gray, or black, to all-
white. While it is really gray-
black, the cinnamonrr.st to
the red wolf's fur is the rea-
son for its name. Gray wolves
are ancestors of domestic
dogs and they resemble Ger-
man shepherds or huskies.
The wolf is. the largest
member of the canine family.
The average wolf stands 26
to 32 inches at. the shoulder
and weighs 55 to 115 pounds.
As with most mammals, the
females are usually slightly
smaller than males. Even
though it is a distant relative
of the dog, a wolf is indeed
different. The body of the
wolf is built for long distance
running, with a chest and
powerful back and leg
muscles. A wolf seems more


massive than a dog because
of the thickness of the coat.
The coat is made of two lay-
ers. One is dense and repels
water and dirt and the other
is a thick, wooly undercoat to
keep it warm. The wolf will
change coats in the spring
and the autumn.
.Today, most wolves in
North America are found in
Alaska and Canada. Hunt-
ers in these areas who share
their observations say that it
is almost impossible to find
wolves in the wild.
Stories have perpetuated
the belief that wolves are
bad. In 'Little Red Riding
Hood," the wolf was por-
trayed as a snarling beast
who lurked in the woods,
waiting to pounce on the first
unsuspecting human. Vi-
sions like these did nothing
to help the wolf population.
The myths surrounding
wolves are unfounded. Al-
though wolves are large,
powerful animals that could
kill humans, they do not.
There is no documented
cases of a healthy wild wolf
killing a human in North
America. However, more
than 20 people are killed and
3 million attacked each year
by man's best friend, the do-
mestic dog.
It was once believed that
wolves would totally elimi-
nate their prey when, in fact,
they actually enhance the
prey population by taking out
the sick and weak animals,
leaving the strongest to re-
produce. Since wolves were
reintroduced into
Yellowstone National Park, a
lot of vegetation is coming
back, such as Ash trees, be-
cause the wolves prevent the
elk from overgrazing.
Wolves live in very orga-
nized packs. The leaders are
the parents, usually the larg-
est, strongest, and most in-
telligent of the pack, and are
the only ones to reproduce.
They are known as the alpha
wolves. The juveniles and
pups under two years of age
take orders from all other
wolves in the pack.
Wolves communicate
through sound, posturing,
and tail placement.
Posturing is the body lan-
guage of the wolf. It can stare
other wolves down, or -even
pin them to the ground to
assert its dominance.
The sound, or vocaliza-
tions, can be separated into
four categories: barking,
whimpering, growling, and
howling.
Another important way
wolves communicate is by
tail placement, which indi-
cates what kind of a mood
they.are in at the time.
As many folks know, there
are some wolves living very
close by at the On the Wild


The DeFuniak Springs

leaders show their spirit Sat-
urday as the pee wee team,
below, came out on top over
Niceville. The junior team,
right, fell to Destin. The senior
team had a bye.


Side Ranch and Preserve in
Ponce deLeon. Carol and Joe
Sorvillo, owners of the ranch,
are passionate about ani-
mals, wolves and tigers spe-
cifically. They currently have
fourteen wolves on site and
will be bringing two more to
live at the ranch in the near
future. The new wolves will
come from an owner who is
no longer able to care for the
wolves because of health is-
sues. The Sorvillos are ex-
cited about bringing the new
wolves home. They are quick
to point out that the wolves
should never be taken from
the wild.
In conjunction with Wolf
Awareness Week, the On The
Wild Side Ranch is sponsor-
ing a poster contest. It will
be open to all children who
attend the Walton County
Fair this year.
To enter the contest, the
poster must be done on 11x14
inch poster board and must
be about Wolf Awareness


Week, wolves as endangered
or threatened species, or
wolves in general.
Name, address, phone
number, and age of contes-
tant must be clearly printed
on back of poster in the top
right corner. Posters will be
disqualified if labeled im-
properly.
Posters must be turned in
to the 'Wolf and Tiger' display
at the fair no later than Fri-
day, October 21, at 8 p.m.
Winners will be announced
on Saturday night at the fair,
during the drawings and
winners need not be present
to win.
Individuals can also spon-
sor a wolf for a year. Spon-
sorships are available for
individuals for $25, by a fam-
ily for $50 and corporate
sponsorships cost only $75.
Sponsors will receive a cer-
tificate ofsponsorship and an
8x10 picture of their wolf.
Carol and Joe also encourage
sponsors to come out and


visit their wolves.

On The Wild Side Ranch is
a nonprofit organization.

Future of

south

Walton

sea walls

uncertain

By DOTTY NIST
"The state has never seen
a case where a county went
from unarmored to totally
armored," commented Tony
McNeil, coastal construction
line administrator for the
state Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection (DEP),
regarding sea walls.
McNeil was in Walton
County two weeks ago, ac-
companied by Jim
Martinello, also of DEP, and
representatives of other en-
vironmental regulatory
agencies. After a meeting
with Walton County Plan-
ning Department staff mem-
bers, the regulators were
joined by a large group of citi-
zens at the South Walton
Courthouse Annex.
"All of these homeowners
are in limbo," said engineer
Terry Anderson, who is rep-
resenting a group of local
beachfront property owners
whose property is, he said, "in
imminent danger of collapse"
in the wake of Hurricane
Dennis.
Before the arrival of Den-
nis in early July, seawalls
were few and far between.
Then as now, they were pro-
hibited from being con-
structed by the Walton
County Comprehensive Plan.
With homes hanging off
cliffs due to hurricane im-
pact, the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) voted on July
12 to allow by emergency or-
der the placement of tempo-
rary seawalls in front of any
beach-front home. Property
owners who have constructed
temporary seawalls permit-
ted by the county are re-
quired to apply for perma-
nent sea wall permits from
DEP within 60 days after
completion of the structures.
DEP will be evaluating
the applications with input
from the other environmen-
tal agencies. Each is to be
evaluated on an individual
basis. If the structure pro-
tecting the home is judged to

result in a "taking" of wild-
life habitat, such as sea
turtles, then the application
can be denied or mitigation
may be required prior to ap-
proval.
Walton County planning
officials had been discussing
with the regulatory agencies
the possibility of a mitigation
for takings resulting from
armoring that could apply to
all 20 miles of non-state-
owned beach-front in Walton
County. This would consist of
a comprehensive habitat pro-
tection agreement that could
include, for example, sea
turtle protection lighting, a
feral cat control program, or
other measures for protec-
tion of beachfront species.
The program would be aimed
at compensating for the ef-
fects of permanent coastal
armoring on wildlife species.
The mitigation plan would
not apply to any new devel-
opment on the beach but only
to structures in danger of col-
lapse.
"It binds the county to do-
ing those things," explained
Walton County Planning Di-
rector Pat Blackshear.


Blackshear said entering
into such a program would be
bhe decision of the commis-
sioners and that she planned
to bring it before the BCC on
Oct. 11 for consideration.
However, it was unclear what
would happen with applica-
tions for permanent seawalls
while the county develops
the mitigation plan, which
could take several years.
McNeil called Walton
County's situation "unprec-
edented" and added that if a
property owner is unable to
get a permanent permit for
a seawall, removal of the
structure would be required.
Some beachfront property
owners expressed a dim view
of armoring. One Seagrove
homeowner noted that she
had understood the risks as-
sociated with building on the
beach.
"If one person puts in this
hideous structure, do I have
to put one in?" she asked. She
added that seawalls give a
false sense of security. "If you
think that's going to keep a
storm from knocking (the
home) down, just wait," she
remarked. "We've got to


think about the long term,"
she added.
Some attendees from
Destin were actively seeking
permission to do armoring,
but seawalls had not been
allowed on that city's
beachfront, even on a tempo-
rary basis. Chuck Meister,
city engineer for Destin, com-
mented that he thinks the
city council will. seek a com-
prehensive plan amendment
to allow seawalls.
Sharon Maxwell, of the
South Walton Turtle Watch,
complained that seawalls,
especially those that are not
well constructed, are liable to
"become missiles" during
storms and "do more harm
than good." Sunrise Beach
homeowner Debbie Holmes
countered that "seawalls do
hold up. The red tide is kill-
ing more fish out there than
any sea wall."
Maxwell also wondered
who would be responsible for
covering seawalls or other
armoring structures with
sand and planting sea oats
on the beach if the structures
are allowed to stay.
Jim Bagby of Rosemary


Beach commented that he is
against armoring but asked
the regulators if they could
allow the homeowners to re-
tain the temporary walls
pending large-scale restora-
tion of Walton County's
coastline. McNeil responded
that DEP does not have the
authority to extend the 60-
day deadline for obtaining a
permanent permit for
armoring structures.

A Seagrove resident
thanked the regulatory agen-
cies for responding to the
"human tragedy" that had
occurred on the area's
beaches and for attempting
to balance the needs of en-
dangered species against
those of the residents. How-
ever, he observed, "The hu-
mans are causing encroach-
ment on the natural
environment...the balance is
already against the species."
Blackshear suggested an-
other public session with rep-
resentatives of the regula-
tory agencies. She said that
once it had been scheduled,
it would be announced
through the media.


CR-30A


scenic


tour


planned
A new step toward the goal
of gaining official designation
of CR-30A as "scenic" will be
taken on Thursday, Oct. 27,
2005, when officials of
Florida's interagency, the
Scenic Highway Advisory
Committee (SHAC) arrive for
their official tour of CR- 30A,
all 19 miles along with con-
nector roads CR-395, CR-
283, and CR- 83.
Laura Haddock, scenic
highways coordinator for
FDOT District 3, together
with Claire Bannerman,
chair of the Corridor Advo-
cacy Group, District 5 Com-
missioner Cindy Meadows,
and members of the Corridor
Advocacy Group will escort
the SHAC members.
The Scenic Highway Advi-
sory Committee is chaired by
the Florida Department of
Transportation, which ad-
ministers the state's Scenic
Highway Program, and in-
cludes representatives from
the Florida Department of
Community Affairs, Florida
Department of State (Divi-
sion of Historical Resources),
Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection,
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission,
Florida Department of Agri-
culture and Consumer Ser-
vices (Division of Forestry)
VISIT FLORIDA, and the
Federal Highway Adminis-
tration. Carter & Burgess,
Inc. serves as a consultant to
FDOT in management of the
Scenic Highway Program.
Why is designation impor-
tant? A Florida Scenic High-
way designation will provide
the common bond that will
link all of CR-30A's commu-
nities, public lands, re-
sources, businesses, and cul-
tural interests to a shared
corridor vision. It will also
elevate the status of the cor-
ridor, increasing the poten-
tial for grant funding.
This effort is fully funded
by grants and is based on ap-
proval by Walton County
Commission Resolution #02-
60 adopted Dec. 10, 2002.


27th Annual Destin Seafood Festival draws record attendance


By BRUCE COLLIER
The Destin Area Chamber
of Commerce is still tying up
the loose ends, but the fig-
ures indicates that this year's
Destin Seafood Festival drew


the largest attendance yet.
"We had about 21,000 visi-
tors," said chamber president
Shane Moody, speaking on
Monday, October 10.
The Destin Seafood Festi-


PHILOSOPHIES TO GO: Handcrafted signs for sale at
Destin Seafood Festival.


val ran from Friday, October
7 through Sunday, October 9,
at the Morgan Sports Center
in Destin.

As in previous years, the
festival offered an array of
business, craft, and vendor
booths, along with live mu-
sic, games, and children's ac-
tivities.
Moody said that more ven-
dors and restaurants partici-
pated this year than ever be-
fore.
Concerts featured, among
others, Foreigner singer Lou
Gramm, the Grass Roots, and
jazzman Ted Shumate. There
were also Irish dancers, and
local favorites Jones & Co.,
Black-Eyed Blonde, and
Chuck Lawson.
Moody said that the music
events were jam-packed.
"You couldn't have squeezed
anyone else in."

One innovation this year


BAZAAR OF BOOTHS at Destin Seafood Festival.


was the charging of a $5 ad-
mission fee, which was good
for all three days of the festi-
val.
Pointing to the record turn-
out, Moody concluded that
"no one must have objected"
to the fee.


"We got visitors from all
over the Emerald Coast," he
added, as well as "drive-from
markets," such as Birming-
ham and Montgomery.

Some 500 visitors with
Mississippi and Louisiana


identification were admitted
free of charge.
Moody said that next year's
festival will likely be mod-
eled on the same lines as the
2005 event. "We'll keep the
formula of'50s and '60s mu-
sic at night. We hope to get
more locals involved."

I WATER SAVING TIPS i


SHOWERS
Conventional sho\\ersheads can pro ide more water than needed b%
delivering 5 to 8 gallons of\ate r per minute (gpmi. Ho\se\er, for less
than $20. you can reduce ,our after use to 2 1/2 gpm or less b\
installing a lowv-flo\, sho\\erhead. This is a 25-75e- sa1 inis
\ without sacrificing the quality of y our show er!

To check the flo\ rate of \our existing showerhead. turn the sho\\er on
all the \\ a and see ho\\ long it takes to fill a one-gallon plastic milk jug
S you ma\ ha\ e to cut a piece of the neck off the jug so it \ ill fit o\er the
sho%, erhead or a one-gallon bucket.

If \our sho\erhead fills a one-gallon container in less than 15 seconds.
it is using more than 4 gallons per minute of waterr Make plans to
replace high after r use sho\\erheads \ith more efficient high-pelformance
models. There are man\ excellent sho\\erheads on the market. Your local
hard\ are or plumbling-supply store is a good source. When bu ing a
sho\\erhead, be sure that it delivers no more than 2 1.2 gallons per minute:
1 1/2 to 2gpm is even better.

TOILETS
Your toilet can flush up to 40(% of the total \' after used in \ our
home do\\n the drain.

Since 1994. only 1.6 gallon toilets are manufactured in the United States.
This means that most ne\\ homes already\ have a lo\\ -flow toilet. It \our
home is more than 5 \ears old, the chances are \our toilet is using more
Skater than necessary and could operate on a lot less.

To lo\\er the amount of water used for each flush. \ou need to
displace \vater in the toilet tank.

1. Place toilet dams in the tank. Toilet dams are placed towards the sides
and around the flushing mechanisms of the tank. The\ hold back water r
and pre ent it from leading the tank. Dams can be purchased at \our
local hard\\ are store.

2. Use pop bottles or a plastic jug to displace after r in ,our tank so that
there is less \ after flo% ing into the bov. I. Fill the bottle \\ith \ after or
place rocks in the bottom of the container for \%eight. Choose a container
that \\ill best fit in the ,,.re in \our toilet tank \ without interfering
\' th the flushing mechanism.

Causes and fun-
draisers throughout
the past few weeks
for Hurricane Ka-
trina relief have
been overwhelming.
This past weekend's
concert at Rosemary
Beach, was no excep-
tion.

As more than 700 people
filed in through the gates at
Rosemary Beach for the
Tunes By The Dunes benefit
concert starring Kim Carnes,
a feeling of celebration, kind-
ness and most of all compas-
sion could be felt. Carnes,
Greg Barnhill, Matraca Berg
and Jeff Hanna greeted the
fans and concert-goers as
they played more than two
hours of favorites from over
the past three decades. .
The concert, along with the
various sponsors, raised
nearly $70,000 for the Hurri-
cane Katrina benefit. Final
figures are still coming in
from wine and beer sales and
gate take.
As I stood behind stage and
carried out my role as concert
producer, I got a chance to
see hundreds singing along
to the music and heard
people pledging thousands of
dollars towards the cause.
Carnes announced to ev-
eryone that the performers
had all come from Nashville
to donate their time and tal-
ent for such a worthy char-
ity. Backstage, she made
similar comments to me
while she was catching her
breathe after being on stage
for more than two hours
straight.
This concert just felt good
and everybody knew they
were here, not for me, but
because of the victims and


survivors of the hurricane,"
she commented.
As the stage lights came up
and the entertainers took
their seats on the stage
stools, a certain electricity
shot through the air and
resonated off everyone in the
audience. From hippies to
housewives, Rosemary
Beach was the place to be this
past Saturday night and was
the center of attention in
fundraising.
Sponsors such as Rose-
mary Beach Realty, Rose-
mary Beach Cottage Rental,
Looney Ricks Kiss, Shabby
Slips, Movies By The Sea,
McNeese Titles and many
others, were able to meet and

greet with the performers
after the concert. They said
Kim Carnes and friends were
the reason they came out, but
it was the cause they made
them become a generous
sponsor.
Tunes By The Dunes was
labelled as the topfundraiser
on the E'meraid Coast. The
benefactor was the American
Red Cross who took an active
part in the concert and was
on site throughout the night
passing out pamphlets and
answering questions about
where all the money really
does go.
At the conclusion of the
concert, the entertainers and
the audience both agreed
that the evening was not only
a success for being the first
time the property had put on
such an event, but it was
such a meaningful concert
that would benefit thou-
sands over the next several
months.
The American Red Cross is
still accepting donations for
the relief fund and other
events of destruction and
devastation.
For more informaitonon
how you can help, call the
local Red Cross office at 892-
6297.

Okaloosa-Walton
College has been awarded a
$172,337 state grant that
will help fund expansion of
the college's registered nurs-
ing program and support new
curriculum to strengthen
clinical instruction in the
medical-surgical, pediatric
and psychiatric specialty ar-
eas.
Lt. Governor Toni Jennings
and Education Commis-
sioner John L.
Winn announced the recipi-
ents of the first-ever SUC-
CEED Florida Career Educa-
tion Grants at a news
conference on Aug. 18 follow-
ing the Enterprise Florida
Board meeting in Fort Lau-
derdaie. The SUCCEED
Florida Grant program, cre-
ated by the 2005 Florida Leg-
islature, is awarding $21 mil-
lion inr grants to public and
private secondary and post-
secondary institutions to
support new or expanding
programs, in nursing educa-
tion and teacher certification,
and to plan and implement
career academies.
OWC was one of 16
Florida colleges and univer-
sities to receive funding for
nursing programs.
The grant will help OWC
expand its associate degree
registered nursing program,
increasing freshman admis-
sions by 50 percent. The
2005-06 freshman class of 54
nursing students began
classes at OWC on Aug. 22.
Richburg explained that
grant funds will cover non-
recurring costs and the first
year expenses related to the
nursing expansion, but that
OWC was required to submit
a plan for future
sustainability as part of the
grant process.
"The OWC Foundation,
through contributions from
its Endowed Teaching Chair
program will assist the col-
lege with funding an addi-
tional 1.5 nursing instruc-
tors." Richburg said.'
OWC Foundation Execu-


tive Dil ector Jim Chitwood

ated ,.through Endowed
Teaching Chairs in nursing
and health technology estab-
lished by the Fort Walton
Beach Rotary Club, and in
memory'of Robert M. Kilbey

others.

Bachelor of Science in nurs-
ing program with the Univer-
sity of West Florida and

ogy program is slated to be-
gin in 2006. .

chief financial officer, ap-

Floridian Insurance Com-

Gallagher said that an inde-

August revealed that the
companies' rate requests
were unjustified.
"This is great news for
Allstate's policyholders,"
Gallagher said. "We will con-

rate requests and demand
accountability."
In June, Gallagher called
.for an independent review of
Allstate's rate requests and,
(


criticized Allstate's pursuit of
higher rates on the heels of
dropping 95,000 of their poli-
cyholders.
The independent review,
conducted by the Consumer
Advocate's Office, was pub-
