Funiak Springs for 30 years,
will now be its new Munici-
pal supervisor. .


cided to continue fire service
agreements with
Healthmark Regional Hospi-
tal andWalton Correctional
Institution (WCI) at a recent
council meeting. Since both
institutions are within two
miles of the city limits, have
adequate water supply and
meet guidelines established
by the city, fire service will be
provided for the next twelve
months. However, Council
Member Don Harrison ex-
pressed an interest in future
annexation of the properties.
As the city's boundaries con-
tinue to expand, both WCI
and Healthmark Regional
Hospital may soon become
eligible for annexation. At
that time the agreement may
be reevaluated.
Other council business in-
cluded:


A unanimous decision to
adopt a resolution re-desig-
nating the city's Rural Enter-
priseZone to include recent ly
annexed properties.
A unanimous decision to
approve execution of a mu-
tual aid agreement with
Florida Municipal Natural
Gas Association.
A unanimous decision to
appoint Council Member
Mark Anderson as an alter-
nate member of the
Okaloosa-Walton TPO.
A unanimous decision to
appoint James Coffield to the
advisory committee that will
develop a plan for the College
Avenue Property (the old
hospital).
A unanimous decision to
renew the mosquito control
agreement with Walton
County.

"CHATWOOD" (c.1939) at 504 Circle Drive. This stately, dignified Colonial Revival home
is the product of three successive architects and families. Great care was taken to retain the
original character and design of the home in recent remodeling efforts.


620 CIRCLE DRIVE (c:1915). This beautifully-crafted American Craftsman style house
vas built for Dr. L. I. Smith, owner of a frontier bank in the Dakota Territory before moving
o DeFuniak Springs. However, the house is known by many in DeFuniak today as the
7ovell House, in reference to a much-revered Covell family who occupied it for many years.


193 FLORENCE STREET Completed in 1999, this "North Carolina Cottage" was de-
,ned with comfort and easy entertaining in mind. The open and airy rooms invite the
tdoors in and encourage the owners to relax in a cheery, pleasant atmosphere.


196 CRESCENT DRIVE. This 105-year-old frame cottage, with its original pine floors and
clawfoot bathtub, has a sassy Victorian flair. The current owners purchased the home in
2004 after waiting seven months before finding a house in the DeFuniak Historic District
that they could restore.

Meadows tells


Rotarians of


challenges


County Commissioner
Cindy Meadows joined the
DeFuniak Springs Rotary
Club for lunch recently. She
has the distinction of being
the first woman elected to the
commission and is a gradu-
ate ofFSU, with her master's
from the University of
Florida.
According to Commis-
sioner Meadows, this is a
great time to serve Walton
County because of the mul-
tiple challenges and opportu-
nities facing the county. She
noted that we have had our
share of storms, drownings,
and shark attacks affecting
our beaches and tourism.
Meadows announced that
there is new legislation in the
loop in Tallahassee that will
impact the infrastructure.
"Senate Bill 360 will place
more responsibility on devel-
opers to determine adequate
road capacity and availabil-
ity of seats in schools prior to
development. In addition,
developers will be required to
pay a proportionate share to
bring roads up to par," she
said.
Meadows noted that the
water supply will be a prob-
lem in Florida in the near
future. Regional Utilities
projects that they will have
adequate water supplies for
the next 10 years.
Meadows stated that, for
the first time in many years,
there are now more re-zoning
issues north of the bay than
south.


One of the committees
where she represents the
county is the Okaloosa Wal-
ton Transportation Planning
Organization (TPO). Their
number one priority for Wal-
ton County is to four lane
U.S. 331. The big question is
- where do we get the money
with state funding so tight?
The TPO is discussing the
prospect to four lane High-
way 20 and to six lane U.S.
98.
Commissioner Meadows
said the county is working on
health care, a big issue for
the county. They're working
with the health department
to provide wellness programs
and some basic health care
for residents.
In January, the county will
begin pumping sand out of
the Gulf to rebuild sand
dunes for a 4.5 mile stretch
of beach. Plans have been
approved for a new animal
control facility and the
project is going out to bid in
2006. Construction is under-
way on the new county jail.
Although the tax base is
bringing in more revenue
right now, that may not al-
ways be the case. Commis-
sioner Meadows stated that
"we need to be good stewards
of our money and spend it
wisely."
The DeFuniak Springs Ro-
tary Club meets Wednesday
at noon at McLain's Family
Restaurant. Anyone inter-
ested in learning more about
Rotary are welcome to at-
tend.


NOTICE
The City of DeFuniak Springs will be
closed on Thursday, November 24, and
Friday, November 25, for Thanksgiving.
,Garbage and trash pickup for Thursday
and Friday, will be picked up on Friday,
November 25, 2005.

mas a little brighter for chil-

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


S. b PERSONAL COMMENTS


By Ron Kelley


Counting our blessings


By RON KELLEY

As we approach another Thanksgiving Day, I am thinking
of all the things for which I have to be thankful.
I am thankful that I live in DeFuniak Springs; a town
that celebrates every holiday in a grand tradition; a place
where people can always be counted on to help others in
their time of need; where rush-hour traffic simply does not
exist; where violent crime is the exception and not the rule;
a place where people take pride in themselves, their town
and its heritage.
I am thankful for groups like the DeFuniak Springs
Garden Club, the DeFuniak Business & Professional
Association, the Heritage Association, Grit &'Grace, the
DeFuniak Springs Women's Club, the Pilot Club, the Open
Door Community Club, Partners in Progress, the veteran's
clubs, the Lions. Rotarians, Kiwanis clubs and many others
that do so much to make this one of the greatest little cities
in America.
I am thankful that I have a loving family. I am thankful
that they are all in good health. I have good friends who
cannot say that today.
I am tl-,tnkful for my friends, my real friends the ones
you can call in the middle of the night and know they would
rush to your aid. They know who they are and they simply
cannot be beat.
I am :ha-nkfiu for this newspaper and for the chance to do



Editor,
Ijust wanted to say how much me and my granddaughter
enjoyed the annual Halloween program in downtown De-
Funiak Springs. It was the best ever. There were more busi-
nesses there than I have ever seen. Some were downtown
shops, but most came from out on Hwy. 90 or 331. I just
wanted to say thank-you to all of the businesses who were
there. We had a lot of fun looking at the children and their
costumes and my granddaughter got tons of candy.
I also appreciate the police and EMS folks for blocking
the streets and keeping everything safe for the trick or treat-
ers and us old folks, too. That's why we go downtown every
year. It's safe, well-lit and there's plenty of treats for every-
body.
We tried going around the Lakeyard, but we only lasted a
couple of houses. Traffic was going in both directions, cars
and trucks were parked on both sides of the street and chil-
dren kept dartingfo0t into the street and paying no atten-
tion to drivers.
Next year, we're going' Lb stick t6 do'Wtowi Hait'i 'tff
the DBPA and all the businesses and stores for another won-
derful Halloween.
Francis W. Miller

Dear Editor: -
I am writing to voice my concern about military recruit-
ing ii. our public schools, my name is Ricky Shea and I am a
sophomore 'J.R. Arnold High School in Panama City Beach,
FL.
While F ?port the troops and the rights of a volunteer
military d ot support institutionalizing involuntary re-
cruitme: .pre ices. The No Child Left Behind Legislation
autmrat' .ally "gives the military the right to take any stu-
dents private information without any form of parental per-
mission or notification! This snooping into students' private
school information needs to stop! There is an opt-out provi-
sion in the legislation, but rarely are students or parents
informed of it.
I encourage students and parents all over our state to send
a letter to their school's administrators asking them to keep
their information private! A sample form can be found at
http://www.militaryfreezone.org/optout.

something that makes a difference m the lives of the people
here in my hometown. I am thankful for this talented staff
of writers and office personnel that shine so brightly.
I am thankful for the deputies and patrol officers that work
around the clock in good weather and bad to keep us safe,
and who are not paid nearly what they are worth.
I am thankful for the teachers, the aides and school staff
who struggle to teach our children everything they'll ever
need to know while buried under an ever-increasing amount
of paperwork and mindless bureaucratic red tape.
I am thankful for (most of) the people who serve in elected
office, a difficult task. For those politicians for whom I am
not thankful, I am most thankful that one day their "chickens
will come home to roost," as my favorite aunt used to say,
and they will have to answer for the things they have done.
I am thankful for the doctors, nurses and emergency
medical folks that staff the hospitals, ambulances and
helicopters that come to our rescue day after day. I am
thankful for the firefighters, especially the volunteers who
take every risk that any other fireman takes and does it for
no pay.
I would be remiss if I didn't remind you to shop at home
on Friday at stores in Walton County that will be open and
filled with every imaginable gift item. Not only will you save
time, stress and money, you'll be helping your town and your
county.
I am looking forward to seeing you all Saturday morning
at the fairgrounds for another fabulous Hometown
Christmas celebration. This is looking like an even bigger
event than last year and no one should miss this once-a-
year shopping extravaganza. Hometown Christmas is just
one more reason that I am thankful to live here.
Have a wonderful holiday weekend!




Editor:
My neighbors in Point Washington and I want to send
out a big thank you to one of our favorite citizens, Ed Berry.
Yesterday the traffic lights were activated at the intersec-
tions of 395 and 98 and 283 and 98.
These two intersections were known by everyone who had
to go through them as the most dangerous places we had to
navigate in our daily lives. More than a dozen people died
in those intersections after the widening of 98, and, as far
as we can see, no action was taken until Ed Berry began a
tireless citizen campaign to make something happen.
Through letters, emails, telephone calls, and,meetings Ed
ridade 'the case for's'afety and the absolute need for traffic
lights. Thank you, Ed Berry!
Ed is an old-fashioned American citizen who believes that
everyone has a right and an obligation to take part in de-
mocracy. It is his belief in the American system tlhat fuels
his fire for action, and that got us traffic lights months or
years sooner than we would have otherwise. So I was espe-
cially dismayed when, at the Board of County Commission-
ers meeting Tuesday night at the DeFuniak Springs court-
house, Ed was called in front of the room with the apparent
express purpose of personal humiliation. I believe every-
one in the room was struck and confused as to the reason
for what seemed to me to be a very personal attack.
Was it that Ed fought the proposed asphalt plant in Point
Washington so well and for so long? Was it because Ed
stands up again and again for what he believes in, and be-
lieves in the rights of the individual citizen and established
communities in Walton County and all over our country?
Or was the public humiliation just a demonstration of
"power" by a member of our own county government whose
office Ed helps to support with his taxes?
All citizens need to applaud Ed Berry and people like him
who helpmake our country the democracy that changed the
world. We should stand up for them again and again. And
thanks again, Ed, for the traffic lights!

Editor:
As a wife, mother, and grandmother, who has served for
over 13 years as a Guardian Ad Litem, I find it hard to com-
prehend how a father could look into the eyes of his child
and fire a weapon ending his child's life.
As a former member of the Board of Directors of Shelter
House, Inc., an organization that has received operating
funds each year from Walton County and grant monies from
the state of Florida to operate a shelter facility in Walton
County, I find it unconscionable that Shelter House still does
not have an operational facility in Walton County.
After the recent tragic deaths in Walton County of vic-
tims of domestic violence, what do we the caring citizens of
Walton County have to do to get the attention of the people
who can insure that the facilities already owned by Shelter
House, located in Walton County, are made operational.
A safe place for victims and their children is needed in
Walton County not miles away in Okaloosa County, far from
the parent's workplace or the children's schools. I think that
if Walton County tax dollars are to be given to Shelter House
than those funds should be utilized to open at least one of
the facilities located here in Walton County.

Editor:
I must comment about the low income housing shortage
that is a real problem in this area. I have attempted to
provide such housing for the past 16 plus years, and find
that it is increasingly difficult. According to CNN Money,
the national median home price is $215,900. Unfortunately,
our wages and salaries have not kept up. Property values
have escalated in our area beyond our wildest imagination.
It seems that I'm only helping a symptom, not the cure.
In my opinion, the solution will come with a cooperative
effort by not only employers, but our city, county, state, and
national governments offering discounts, incentives, perks,
and other benefits for increasing wages, allowing employ-
ees to gain more education, to be able to get, or increase
their job position. And seeking out industry that hires more


skilled workers. Adrianne Walline Campbell

PAXTON

the dirt was hauled in and
spread on the fields. Last
week, the new irrigation sys-
tem was installed.
The planning committee
working on the new fields had
to downsize the size of the
concession stand in order to
have enough grant money to
finish the entire project. The
new concession stand design
is 24 X 18 feet and is similar
in looks to the one at the Pax-
ton High School. The upstairs
portion of the stands will be
for use by the press, game
announcers and other game
officials. The town of Paxton
is currently accepting bids for
the field's fencing. Everything
is on schedule for completion
the first of March.
Council members dis-
cussed parking issues once
the fields are complete. For
several years now, council has
heard a lot of controversy
over parking at city hall and
the post office. Game attend-
ees were parking at town hall
or the post office to have
easier, access: to fields on that
side ofAdams Park. The lay-
out of the new fields allows
for approximately 100 park-
ing spaces on the Paxton Ag-
ricultural Complex side of the
fields. Council members are
now seeking citizens' input as
to whether or not a gate
should be installed on the
post office side of the fence to
allow for parking to still be
done on the south side of the
fields.
Councilwoman Jenice
Armstrong notified those in
attendance at the meeting
that "Children at Play" signs
are now in evidence along
Webster Lane. The speed
limit has been increased to 40
mph from the intersection of
U.S. Highway 331 and
Webster Lane (147) to the city
limits. Bytell had prepared an
ordinance.for council's consid-
eration regarding the in-
creased speed limit but was
unable to present the ordi-
nance at this meeting. After
discussion it was determined
that the ordinance should in-
clude the west side of the
street, which is named the
Paxton-Lakewood Cut-off
Road. Bytell will make the
additional change and
.present the ordinance at the
December council meeting for
first reading.
The current ordinance in
affect for Paxton reads that
the speed limit is 25 mph for
all streets within the city's
limits. U.S. 331 is the excep-
tion to the ordinance. Cur-
rently, it is not the council's
discretion to change the
speed limit on this highway.
Bytell notified council mem-
bers that in order to change
the posted limits on a federal
highway, they could name the
street locally and then re-
quest that the street come
under the city's purview.
Sexton informed council
members that a fence outside
of the Paxton cemetery has
been erected. The backside
fencing is still under con-
struction and the city is try-
ing to use existing fencing to
complete the project.
Sexton also noted that the
Paxton FHA club members
have community hours to
work. Sexton stated that the
youth wanted to provide their
community work within Pax-
ton and is seeking activities
that need to be completed.


FROM FRONT

Anyone needing assistance
from this youth group can
contact the school to request
their help.
Greg Paul has been hired
as the new part-time mainte-
nance man for Paxton. Smith
requested that council con-
sider increasing Paul's 32-
hours workweek schedule to
full-time. After a motion from
Melton and a second from
Sexton, the motion carried
unanimously to increase the
maintenance man's work
hours to full time employ-
ment. The new work schedule
will become affective on Mon-
day, November 14.
In other departmental
business, Smith requested
that council consider a one-
time pay increase for five city
employees. Council approved
a one-time, one hundred dol-
lar pay increase for the city
employees who work a 40-
hour work week.
With no old business to dis-
cuss, council members heard
the second 'reading of Ordi-
nance 05-02. This is "an ordi-
nance amending ordinance
number 91-1, entitled town of
Paxton Land Development
Regulations amending the
code enforcement procedures
and providing an effective
date'.":
The ordinance allows Pax-
ton to designate the Walton
County Code Enforcement
office to enforce the appli-
cable provisions of the Walton
County Land Development
Code by inter-local agree-
ment. The code enforcement
services shall include: plan-
ning services, building per-
mits issuance and associated
inspections, code enforcement
investigations and adjudica-
tions, board of adjustment
proceedings, and other such
matters as may be required
by the applicable provisions
of the Walton County Land
Development Code. Code en-
forcement complaints will be
submitted to the Town of Pax-
ton who will then automati-
cally transmit the complaint
information to the Walton
County code enforcement of-
ficer. The county will enforce
the Walton County Land De-
velopment Code.
A roll call vote of each
council member was taken
and Ordinance 05-02 passed
unanimously.
Due to the on-going con-
struction at the Paxton
School, the school and con-
struction company requested
an easement from Adams
Street up to the proposed new
gym site. This utility ease-
ment will provide smoother
access to the new gym's loca-
tion. A property description
was unavailable during the
meeting to show the appro-
priate property owners from
which to request the ease-
ment. Therefore, the council
will provide any necessary
documents and the school will
work directly with the af-:
fected property owners.
In other business, council
elected Mayor Wanda Smith
as the liaison with the Wal-
ton County Commission in
negotiations for a walking:
trail around the Florida side
of Lake Jackson.. Council also
agreed to begin erecting'
Christmas decorations for the
town the first Monday after
Thanksgiving. All council.
members will be putting up
the decorations throughout
town.


Editor's Comment

I


Dear Editor,
I just wanted to say how much me a-7' my granddaughter
enjoyed the annual Halloween program in downtown De-
Funiak Springs. It was the best ever. There were more busi-
nesses there than I have ever seen. Some were downtown
shops, but most came from out on Highway 90 or 331. Ijust
wanted to say thank-you to all of the businesses who were
there. We had a lot of fun looking at the children and their
costumes and my granddaughter got tons of candy.
I also appreciate the police and EMS folks for blocking
the streets and keeping everything safe for the trick or treat-
ers and us old folks, too. That's why we go downtown every
year. It's safe, well-lit and there's plenty of treats for every-
body.
We tried going around the Lakeyard, but we only lasted a
couple of houses. Traffic was going in both directions, cars
and trucks were parked on both sides of the street and chil-
dren kept darting out into the street and paying no atten-
tion to drivers.
Next year, we're going to stick to downtown. Hats off to
the DBPA and all the businesses and stores for another
wonderful Halloween.
wonoween. Francis W. Miller

Ministry plans New

Year's Eve event


Just when report cards
have come home, a local
woman from Walton County
has published a helpful "par-
ent-friendly" instructional
workbook which can help
children have success in
reading beginning in infancy
all the way through fluency.
Miss Maggie's Fun Guide to
Reading is a hands-on ap-
proach to teaching reading
and writing. Easier on the
wallet than a private reading
;utor or other expensive

ises reading strategies that

teachingg academics was

GIS Day a success at OWC


More than 250 people at-

held at the Okaloosa Walton
College Chautauqua Neigh-

Springs. Walton County's
Geographic InformatiQSys-
tems Department along with
Okaloosa Walton College
hosted this event to highlight
the importance of geographic
information systems and its
many applications in busi-
ness, education and govern-
ment.
In Walton County, the GIS
department uses GPS (Glo-
bal Positioning Satellite)


technology to create incred-
ibly accurate maps that are

ter. These maps are, in turn,
used by emergency medical
services, fire departments
and law enforcement
agencies to help them reach
citizens in trouble

that could result in loss of life
or property.
GIS maps are also used by
the Walton County Planning
Department, who use them
to view land and make criti-
cal decisions regarding prop-


erty issues. GIS technologies
are now utilized by an in-
creasing number of commer-
cial and industrial busi-
nesses.

people are familiar with util-
ity companies like Okaloosa
Gas and CHELCO, some
may not aware that engineer-
ing consulting firms like

also use GIS maps.

targets


speeders

By BRUCE COLLIER
Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) director Col. Chris
Knight has announced that
the FHP's long-term Opera-
tion Safe Ride is moving into
its next phase.
Operation Safe Ride was
initiated in February of 2004.
Since that time, four phases
of enforcement have been
implemented, each targeting
a specific "traffic theme" such
as DUI or aggressive driving.
The latest enforcement
phase is intended to counter
what Knight calls "the erro-
neous belief that it's okay to
drive 10 to 15 miles per hour
over the posted speed limit."
"Motorists must recognize
that speeding increases the
likelihood of a crash and its
severity," adds Knight.
All available FHP person-
nel in every one of the state's
ten field troops will partici-
pate in the program, includ-
ing troopers and supervisors
normally assigned to non-
patrol duties.
Speeding vehicles will be
tracked using radar, Vascar,
video cameras, motorcycles,
FHP aircraft, and unmarked
patrol vehicles.
Operation Safe Ride will
focus on all Florida turn-
pikes, interstates, and major
state roads where speeding
and aggressive driving are
prevalent.

New tracking service for military families
Military families now have a convenient way to track the status of Express Mail sent to
loved ones stationed around the world. Through a new tracking service available on
usps.com, military families and others who send Express Mail to service men and women
can now confirm when their mail pieces arrive at military post offices anywhere in the
world--except combat zones.
Customers can log on at usps.com and click on "Track & Confirm" and enter the tracking
number from their Express Mail receipt. The deadline for shipping packages via Express
Mail Military Service (EMMS) is Dec. 19. Next year, the Postal Service plans to expand
this capability to track other types of mail worldwide, including combat areas.
To make it easier for military friends and families to ship gifts to loved ones serving
overseas, the Postal Service has created a free kit of shipping supplies. The kit may be
ordered by calling 1-800-610-8734 and requesting CAREKITO4. It contains four Priority
Mail boxes, six Priority Mail "Flat-Rate" boxes, ten Priority Mail labels, one roll of Priority
Mail tape, and ten customs forms with envelopes. There is no charge for the kit.
All packages and mail must be addressed to individual service members, in accordance
with U.S. Department of Defense regulations.
All military units are assigned an APO or FPO ZIP code and in many cases that ZIP
Code travels with the unit. The Postal Service places APO/FPO mail on special charter
flights, commercial airlines and military service aircraft to reach armed services members
overseas as quickly as possible.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY. NOVEMBER 24, 2005



Suspected drug dealers arrested

within 1000 feet of church


By BRUCE COLLIER
A traffic stop for a hang-
ing tag light led to the arrest
of two men on charges of pos-
session and trafficking in
drugs with 1000 feet of a
church on November 18.
DFS Police officer Joseph
G. Ward II stopped a vehicle
with a hanging tag light. Just
prior to the stop, Ward was
notified that the tag was to
be seized, if the driver of the
vehicle was the owner.
Upon stopping, the driver
of the vehicle got out of the
car. Ward recognized the man
as Cornelius L.. McKenzie,
27, of Ponce de Leon.
As Ward approached, he
observed McKenzie take a
plastic bag containing a
white substance from his
pocket, and throw it into the
car through the open door.
Recalling that McKenzie's
driver's license had been sus-
pended or revoked,Ward ar-
rested him. Ward also or-
dered a passenger in the car,
Arneil Holmes, 21, of DeFu-
niak Springs, to exit the ve-
hicle.
Officer Derek Walters then
arrived on the scene as back-
up. Noticing the smell of
burning marijuana coming
from the car, Walters ob-
served a partially-burned
marijuana cigarette on the
car seat.
A vehicle search yielded
several plastic bags contain-
ing more than 30 grams of
crack cocaine and more than
30 grams of marijuana. Some
$1,500 in assorted bills was
rolled up and located near
the drugs.


Pryor graduates
Army Pvt. Christopher K.
Pryor has graduated from
basic infantry training at
Fort Benning, Columbus,
GA. Pryor is the son of Pat
Pryor of SR 2 E., DeFuniak
Springs, FL.


Holmes and McKenzie
were both arrested and
booked on charges of traf-
ficking in drugs, possession
of cocaine, possession of can-
nabis, and possession of both


cocaine and cannabis with in-
tent to distribute within 1000
feet of a church.
McKenzie was also booked
for driving with license sus-
pended or revoked.

By RON KELLEY
A.. Afew eeks ago, theDeFuniak Her-
ald and Beach Breeze carried an edito-
rial regarding the original location of
The Breeze newspaper office in DeFu-
niak Springs. The response was over- .. MI
whelming. Many letters poured in, de-
tailing even more recollections by read- T
ers about those early days. "; L
Unbeknownst to the author, someone -. .,
else was also reading that article, some-
one who had never lived in Walton
County, but had an extraordinary link to
the early history of DeFuniak Springs.
Nancy Brandon and her husband,
Campbell, of Lebanon, Tennessee, have
visited Walton County beaches before, IIP",
but this time, she decided to bring along -4
some dusty, nearly-forgotten memora- -
bila .that had been discovered among -
some of her parent's and grandparent's 1 "
possessions. THE BIG STORE, owned and operated by Burruss Cawtho

addressed to her great-grandfather,

had not yet been conceived, but the let- E
ter was apparently delivered to its in-
tended recipient without any difficulty.
The letter offers us a glimpse into the .
life of a DeFuniak Springs man, well- t -
known in his time, whose memory might
have disappeared into the mist had it not
been for Nancy and her family, who kept
the letter and album, and who made sure
they found their way back home.
Now published for the first time, the
letter,reads, "Dear Mr. Moore, We THE FIRST SCHOOL buildings in DeFuniak Springs on the

father and a few days ago, we mailed -r ts
you a book of views of our town and a ..1
photograph of Papa which was taken
quite recently and we think very much
like him.
"Not many weeks prior to his death, .
he received a letter from you and he was
so very pleased that I'm'sure it awak- r I
ended memories of a very happy friend-
ship and as his friends must be our
friends, I take the liberty of writing you.
"I'm not sure Papa had answered your
letter, but I rather think he had but fear-
ing otherwise and wishing you to know
something of us, I will tell you.
"Papa has four daughters and one son.
The daughters are all married but live at
home with one exception. My only
brother is twenty-one and attending the
Medical University of New Orleans. Of
course, we are very proud of this boy.

was incorporated as a city, which
occurred in 1901. The Cawthon fam-
ily, dating back to old William
Cawthon, W.J.D. Cawthon and J.B.
Cawthon, played an important role
in the founding and settling of De-
Funiak Springs. Cawthons were
businessmen, doctors and bankers.

97th birthday celebration for Mary Ardella Mathews


By KERRY STEWART
Mary Ardella Mathews, of
DeFuniak Springs celebrated
her 97th birthday this month
at the Paxton Community
Center with many of her fam-
ily and friends.
Mrs. Mathews was born on
Nov.1, 1908 to John Daniel
Stanley and Sarah Victoria
Butts Stanley in the Sandy
Creek Community of north-
west Florida. At the age of 23,
Mary married Joel Achie
Mathews beginning a long
and happy life as wife and
then mother to eight children
Tommy, Billy Joe, Bobby,
James, Alice (McRae), Win-
ston, Louise (Eidson), and
Larry. Her children orga-
nized the birthday dinner in
honor of a mother that they
recognize as having been a
blessing to them and to oth-
ers. Her son Bobby com-
mented that "he had been
blessed" to have had his
mother around for so long as
she is a wonderful example
of a Christian mother.

The birthday party in-
cluded tables covered in her
favorite red cloth and laden
with good food and desserts.
Her children, grandchildren,
great-grandchildren,
nephew, and friends brought
many dishes of food for every-
one to indulge in. Guests had
their choice of turnips, beans,
casseroles, chicken: and
dumplings, potato salads,
and fried chicken just to
name a few of the dishes on
the numerous tables. The
only thing missing was fried
mullet, one of her favorite
foods. The dessert tables
were also amply supplied
with birthday cake, egg pies,
chocolate stack cake (the first
to disappear), flan, and vari-
ous other cakes from which
to choose.
Brothers and sister'scous-
ins and aunts and uncles,
children, grandchildren,

MARY MATHEWS is still
"looking good" as she cel-
ebrates her 97th birthday.
Now that's a celebration!

great-grandchildren and
friends hugged and laughed


and got caught up with all
that had been happening in
everyone's life. The highlight
of the evening though was
when all of the children and
their spouses sang "Beulah
Land" to their mother. Even
though most of them would
never otherwise consider
singing in front of a crowd,
they gladly safng her favorite
song out of love for her.
Besides the good food and
laughter from family and
friends, the entertainment
was gospel music provided by
a local church band.
Besides her devotion to her
family, her love of God has
been the driving force of her
life. This tiny woman lived
through many of our nations'
tough years, beginning with


the Depression, and both
World Wars. As a mother, she
helped provide for her fam-
ily over the years by tending
gardens, cotton fields, peanut
fields, and chicken coops, as
well as tending to the other
needs of her home and fam-
ily. Many have heard her
singing as she goes about her
daily chores. She is still likely
to sing as she makes her won-
derful Lane's Fruit Cake, bis-
cuits and chocolate syrup,
and preserved figs.
Mary had over 40 wonder-
ful years as a wife to Joe
Mathews before his death in
1974. It was only after his
death, that she learned to
drive at the age of 65. After
all, she needed a way to the
grocery store and to church.
Mary has been an active
part of Caney Creek Baptist


Church for over 60 years.
When her health permits,
she is in her pew praying and
worshipping God. If she is
not feeling "up to snuff',
Mary is still praying and wor-


shipping wherever she hap-
pens to be. Mary attributes
her long and very healthy life
to the blessings of God. She
has had 97 happy years and
looks forward to many more.


WHILE THE WHOLE Mathews clan showed up to celebrate
Mary's 97th birthday, she enjoyed a little bit of special at-
tention from Danny McRae, one of her grandsons.

the safe return of U.S. ser-

playing yellow ribbons. The
club has chosen yellow daffo-
dils as living "yellow ribbons"
as a reminder thatAmericans
live in freedom because of our
veterans' and servicemen's
courage, dedication to duty
and love of country.
The 1,500 yellow daffodil
bulbs that the club planted
last year were up and in
bloom just in time for Veter-
ans Appreciation Day in
March. The Carlton daffodils
are perennial and will con-
tinue to multiply and come
back.each spring. The club
plans to add to the plantings
each year. This years bulbs
were generously donated by
The Florida Daffodil Society.
The club envisions a sea of
yellow around the Lakeyard
that will be more beautiful
with each coming year, a liv-
ing reminder of the sacrifices
made for freedoms we enjoy.
The club has had a busy
month. They installed petu-
nias and pansies at the front
of the Chautauqua building
to cheer up the winter land-
scape, added 65 red amaryl-
lis to the front of the beds of
the library to compliment the
red doors at the entrance, and

Forgive us our


debts as we


forgive our debtors


By Dr Robert M. Jaye

There is more to this part
of the Lord's Prayer (Matthew
6:12) than forgiveness of our
sins, for we are praying, "For-
give us as we forgive others."
We are actually asking God to
forgive us only insofar as we
forgive others for the wrongs


they have done to us.
The prime illustration of
forgiveness is the death of
Jesus Christ on the cross.
There was pain,, hunger and
thirst at Golgotha. And Jesus
was bearing our sins. As they
nailed Him to the cross and
spit on Him, Jesus prayed,
"Father, forgive them; for they


know not what they do."
There amid the darkness,
pain, blood, thunder, light-
ning, and death, the prayer of
forgiveness hovered over it
all.
We forgive others when we
seek to understand them.
True forgiveness looks behind
what one does. It concludes,
"They know not what they
do." We have no biblical
record of Jesus ever sitting
around with His disciples af-
ter His resurrection talking
about His ill treatment. In-
stead He said, "Peace I give
unto you."
We forgive others when we
learn to love the unlovely. A
Christian does not depend on
what one is, or on what one
does to us. It was an unlovely
crowd about the cross what
Jesus was put to death for our
sins. Yet His prayer was for
forgiveness.
The only way to become for-
giving is to experience God's
forgiveness through Christ.
When we are saved, we real-
ize how unworthy we are of
God's forgiveness. Then we
cannot refuse to forgive oth-


THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 2005

ers. We cry out with the 130:3). How can we be less tenderhearted, forgiving one
psalmist, "If Thou, Lord, gracious toward others than another, even as God for
shouldest mark iniquities, O God has been toward us? Let Christ's sake hath forgiven
Lord, who shall stand" (Psalm us be "kind one to another, you." (Ephesians 4:32).



CREMATION IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS SOME PEOPLE
JUST CAN'T SEE SPENDING A LOT OF MONEY ON...


WE UNDERSTAND.


We know that not everybody feels
they should have to empty their
savings account to pay for a memorial
service. It's only natural to want a
funeral home that can offer excellent
service and match it with an excellent

PdL splits pair of games


By PATRICK CASEY
The Ponce de Leon Pirates
girls basketball team re-
corded a 1-1 record in the
opening week of the season as
they knocked off West
Gadsden 65-46 after falling to
North Florida Christian 71-
69.
NFC outscored PDL 16-12
in the fourth quarter to rally
for the win. Mary Howes had
a chance to send the game
into overtime with 1.4 sec-
onds left in the game but she
missed a pair of free throws
and the Eagles grabbed the
rebound to run out the clock.
NFC had four players in
double figures as Samantha
Phillips scored 21 points to


lead the way. Melanie
Warner added 17, Kristen
Ledlow had 15, and K.K.
Clayton chipped in 11 points
to help the Eagles.
Lacey Griffin scored 23
points to lead the Pirates
while Howes scored 14 and
Catherine Tinsley 10 points
in the contest. PDL hit 18-
of-26 free throws in the game,
but was only 4-of-9 in the fi-
nal period. The Pirates
battled foul trouble through-
out the contest as Howes and
Griffin spent considerable
time on the bench during
stretches of the game.
NFC has defeated PDL in
their last three meetings.


NFC ended the Pirates sea-
son in the playoffs last Feb-
ruary, and have wins over
PDL in Bonifay and PDL over
the last year. The two teams
could meet each other at the
end of the season in Lakeland
if they capture their respec-
tive region titles.

PDL defeated West
Gadsden as the Panthers
could hit only 20-of-77 shots
from the floor. Howes scored
25 points and the Pirates
overcame 27 turnovers to
capture the win. Catherine
Tinsley added 10 points as
the Pirates got scoring from
seven different players on the
night.

Some of the thiligs shown in
these old photographs still look
much as they did 100 years ago,
while others are long gone,

stances,.so that all we have left
are these captured moments,
these windows into the past.

some of the most beautiful
young women in the county.
This year, for the first time,
the winner won the crown for
a second time. Ashley Garcia
won the title two years ago
when she was a freshman.
Now a junior, Garcia was
adorned with the Miss War
Hoop crown again this past
weekend at the pageant, held
in DeFuniak Springs.
Another record has already
been set regarding Miss War
Hoop and Miss Walton
County pageants, one that
might be termed a 'legacy of
beauty.'
Three local women, all re-
lated, have held the title of
Miss Walton County and two
of them were also Miss War
Hoop. What makes it truly
unique is that the three beau-
ties are mother, daughter and
granddaughter.
Winona "Nonie" Caswell
Nethery first won both titles
at Walton High School as a
member of the senior class of
1956. As Miss Walton County,
she also represented Walton
at the National Peanut Fes-
tival in Dothan, Alabama.
Winona passed on her
'movie star' good looks to her
daughter, Dawne Nethery
Miller, who also became Miss
Walton County in 1978. She
also represented the county
at the Peanut Festival.
These two beautiful ladies
passed on their legacy of
poise, grace and beauty to a
third generation, Dawne's
daughter, Courtney.; Dawne
and George Ralph Miller
watched with pride as
Courtney garnered several
titles on her way to becoming
Miss War Hoop for the 2004-
2005 school year.
In an earlier interview,
Dawne and her mother
agreed that pageants can of-
fer positive experiences. "It's
really good to be in front of
other people to learn poise,
and to learn to work with
other children," said Miller.
"Being around other adults is
good, too, because they learn
to listen and to take direction
from other adults besides
their parents."
Nethery added, "We keep
telling her to have fun, and if
she's not having fun, we don't
want her to do it."
Along the way, Courtney
did have fun. She made new
friends and was also named
Little Miss Walton County in
1994. Like her mother and
grandmother before her,
Courtney represented Walton
County at the National Pea-
nut Festival that year, where
she was first runner-up.
In 2004, Courtney, a senior,
was also awarded the title of
Miss Walton County and at-
tended the National Peanut
Festival for a second time and
was among the top 10 final-
ists.
On Friday, Nov. 18,
Courtney passed on her Miss
War Hoop crown to Ashley


Garcia.
Courtney is currently a
freshman at the University of
Florida in Gainsville and is a
pre-health major.
Regarding this amazing
!r i f1 J


family accomplishment, and
the achievements of her
mother and daughter, Dawne
Miller said, "I'm just so in-
credibly proud of both of
them."

College football shocked, rattled and rolled


By CHUCK HINSON
If you weren't glued to the
television set this past week-
Send, I'm sure you heard all
about the games. It was an-
other weekend of upsets,
overcoming and intense
Gridiron entertainment.
The Alabama/Auburn
game had most people in this
Area glued to the set. It was
all Auburn and like my pub-
lisher said, Bama's senior
players, despite their amaz-
Sing season, will still leave
College 0-4 against the Ti-
gers. No. 11 Auburn sacked
and shocked the unexpecting
Tide in Auburn as the Tigers
rolled to a 28-18 victory.
Many thought if the game
was close at all, that the vic-
tory would be decided by a
field goal and then the game
Should still be in Alabama's
Favor. But Tuberville's Ti-
i gers had other plans, includ-
ing seven quarterback sacks
against Bama quarterback
SBrodie Croyle, for a loss of 51
yards just in the first half.
Auburn has a chance to
advance to the Western Divi-
sion of the SEC, but the offi-
Scial celebration will have to
wait until the LSU game on
Saturday. Chances are the
LSU Tigers will have no
trouble with Arkansas and
will clinch the deal to play for
the SEC title on Dec. 3
against the Georgia Bull-
dogs.
Speaking of the state of
Georgia and the Georgia
Tech Yellow Jackets. that
had to be one of the two big-
gest shockers of the weekend.

I know, as a Florida State
fan with three losses under
our belt against unranked
teams, we are still going to the
big game and play against a
Virginia team that has al-
ready had their way with the
Seminoles earlier this season.
The Seminoles and Gators
go head-to-head this Satur-
day in the Swamp for nothing
more than state bragging
rights. Both teams have three
losses under their belts for the
season.
Other top 10 teams stayed:
about, the same. USC' came
back to defeat Fresno St.,


Ohio St. won their rivalry
against Michigan and Penn
State continues to shock ev-
eryone in NCAA except for Joe
"Pop" Paterno.
The other game that had
fans picking up their jaw and
rubbing their eyes had to have
been the Tennessee upset by
Vanderbilt. Yes, Vanderbilt!
The two Tennessee teams
locked horns, but early in the
game, Vandy had that sparkle
in their eye and the determi-
nation to strike against a
team that has a 4-6 record and
one of their worst football sea-
sons in decades. Vandy took


advantage and pulled off the
28-24 upset and broke the 22
year-losing streak against the
Volunteers.
As college football season
comes to a close and bowl se-
lections are being made and
extended, it will be interest-
ing to see who beats out
whom, who actually is the
toughest team in the individ-
ual conferences and what
team simply wants it more.
The 2005 season has been one
of surprises, defeats, over-
the-top victories and a great
year to just be a college foot-
ball fan.

Elections


commission


to investigate


'attack ad'


organization

By DOTTY NIST
The Florida Elections Commission has reportedly found
probable cause to investigate 30 counts of alleged violations
by the Walton Association of Voters (WAV,) an electioneer-
ing communications organization.
The investigation is the result of charges filed by former
Grayton Beach business owner Guy Davidson after the 2004
Walton County election. Davidson, who was employed to
produce campaign advertising for Walton County District 1
incumbent Lane Rees, also filed complaints with the elec-
tions commission against another organization, Citizens for
Responsible Government, plus Rees' opponent Scott
Brannon, and Lee Perry, an unsuccessful candidate for the
District 5 commission seat.
Walton Association of Voters is listed by the Florida De-
partment of State, Division of Corporations as a Florida non-
profit corporation. William W. German, Steve Evans, and
Verdon E. Rahal, all of Santa Rosa Beach, are listed as the
directors of WAV. The organization has a Tallahassee mail-
ing address.
WAV was one of the nonprofit groups that ran 'attack'
advertising aimed at defeating Rees in the 2004 election.
Some of WAV's full and half-page ads were placed in the
Herald and Breeze in July and August 2004.
WAV and similar electioneering communications organi-
zations target candidates through negative advertising with-
out referring, to the candidates' opponents. By federal law,
such groups are prohibited from coordinating with those
opponents' campaigns.
Brannon, current District 1 commissioner, has denied any
involvement with the groups that attacked Rees, who lost
his seat in the 2004 election.
The Florida Elections Commission (FEC) decision that
there was probable cause to investigate the charges against
WAV was reached at hearings in Tallahassee last week. A
probable cause decision does not constitute a finding of any
culpability; instead it is a starting point for research lead-
ing to a determination on the existence of a violation or vio-
lations.
Probable cause hearings are confidential and closed to
the public. However, as complainant Davidson was required
to be present.
He said that the 30 counts to be investigated against WAV
appear to involve timeliness in reporting spending, failure
to report expenses, failure to report contributions, and mak-
ing purchases in excess of the amount in the organization's
account.
In February, the FEC determined that there was no prob-
able cause to investigate the Walton Citizens for Respon-
sible Government. Davidson had charged that the organiza-
tion failed to file a statement of organization, failed to file
an independent expenditure of $100 or more in a timely fash-
ion, failed to display a proper political ad disclaimer, failed
to state that no candidate approved an ad, and violated state
requirements regarding falsely reporting or failing to report
information required by state statutes.
Campaign finance-related charges against 2004 candi-
dates Brannon and Perry were the subject of a FEC hearing
last week, but no decision was rendered. Instead, those cases
are reportedly being scheduled for hearing by an adminis-
trative law judge.
Former District 1 Commissioner Lane Rees commented
that he believes the investigations that the FEC is conduct-
ing regarding the 2004 election are helpful and that enforc-
ing requirements related to reporting where and how cam-
paign funds are raised is a benefit to candidates. He said his
campaign was at a disadvantage and lacked sufficient time
to respond when others involved in the election did not re-
port expenditures in a timely manner.
However, he said that the 2004 election had not soured
him on the political process and that he is active as a pre-
cinct person for the Republican Party and on the Walton
County Republican Executive Committee.
"I still enjoy politics," he said.

:ial restoration


not for whole beach


Py LEAH STRATMANN
On Nov. 28, the Board of County Commissioners will meet
a a special session to award bids for the first phase of a
massive project to restore the coastline in Walton County. It
s interesting to note that a project costing approximately
;2.4 million dollars per mile will be completed without the
ise of county taxpayer dollars.
In 1999, the BCC agreed to raise the bed tax levy by one-
ent, with the extra penny dedicated to beach restoration.
according to South Walton Tourist Development Council di-
ector Kriss Titus, those funds accrue at $2.5 million dollars'
|er year.
"We had to pay for engineering plans and some tf those
)sts have been repaid by DEP. Some of those do.,c I: have
sen used to rebuild beach accesses after the hurricanes,
at we have $4 million left. We will borrow $8 million and
EP will provide another $5 million for the $17 million dol-
Lr, 4.8 mile beach restoration project from Four Mile Vil-
ge to the Okaloosa County line," she said. "Tourist dollars
e paying for this, not Walton County taxpayers."
The road to the actual beginning of work is long and labo-


rious. "The federal permit, which was granted last week, was
the last piece of the puzzle on permitting," Titus -aid.
Brad Pickel, director of beach management. noted that
while general plans are underway for complete restoration
of Walton County's coastline, "there are six miles of beach
we will never be involved with. The beaches in Grayton Beach
State Park and Topsail Hill Preserve and Deer Lake are not
the responsibility of the county. There is no benefit to Wal-
ton County to restore beaches in state parks."
Pickel noted the road to the restoration of the 4.8 miles of
beach began in 2000 with a feasibility study to determine
which coastal areas were and were not healthy. The coast-
line was broken down into 10 parts based on similarity of
area, with three of the 10 deemed critically eroded.
"The permitting process has taken two and a half years
for the 4.8 mile area, but we are looking at the remaining 15
miles as one big project," he said. "The restoration is designed
to protect upland areas from a storm surge of 12-feet. Large
storms may wash the sand away, but the restoration will
serve as a buffer. The purpose is notjust to restore the beach

this week at Seaside Repertory Theatre


TERESA MCKENNA, Julie Somers, and Kay Coffeen of
ECLC with some of the Christmas stockings prepared by
Sarah Circle at Emerald Coast Lutheran Church.


Lutheran Church


Charles Dickens'A Christ-
mas Carol gets a new twist
in a one-man play opening
November 25 at Seaside Rep-
ertory Theatre (SRT).
Jacob Marley's Christmas
Carol, written by Tom Mula,
is the familiar tale of
Ebenezer Scrooge and his
redemption. However, this
version is retold by Scrooge's
deceased business partner,
Jacob Marley.
Marley, facing an eternity
in a very bad place, agrees to
return to earth on Christmas


Eve in a seemingly hopeless
attempt to make Scrooge
mend his ways.
SRT's artistic director,
Craige Hoover, plays Marley
and everyone else in this two-
act adaptation, directed by
Bruce Collier and Laley
Lippard.
Jacob Marley's Christmas
Carol opens on Friday, No-
vember 25, at the Seaside
Community Hall. The play
will run Fridays, Saturdays,
and Sundays through De-
cember 18.


Friday and Saturday per-
formances are at 7:30 p.m.,
Sunday matinees' at 2 p.m.


For information on tickets
and reservations, call SRT at
231-3033, or 231-0733.


Christmas Stockings Eden Gardens Park


for needy children


Once again, the women of
Sarah Circle at Emerald
Coast Lutheran Church will
provide 50 "full to the brim"
Christmas stockings for the
community's needy chil-
dren.
The ladies have been sew-
ing all summer to prepare
these gifts for boys and girls
ages 1-17. ECLC's Snowbirds
have also sewn stockings and
mailed them from Minne-
sota, New Jersey, New York,
Ohio, and Wisconsin. Other
Snowbirds have sent money
to buy the goodies to fill the
stockings.

Colonel Chris Knight, di-
rector of the Florida High-
way Patrol, announced that
the next phase of Operation
Safe Ride, a long-term FHP
enforcement campaign that
focuses on varying traffic
themes, will target unlawful
speed violators.
"There's an erroneous be-
lief that it's okay to drive 10
to 15 miles per hour over the
posted speed limit. We want
to.make clear that this belief
is not only wrong, but dan-
gerous. Motorist must recog-
nize that speeding increases
the likelihood of a crash and
it severity," said Colonel
Knight.
FHP troopers will con-
tinue to conduct speed and
traffic law enforcement as
part of theirdaily enforce-
ment efforts as well as par-


ticipate in special operations
such as this one, which is
scheduled for November 22,
23, 2005.
Operation Safe Ride will be
conducted in all ten FHP
field troops throughout the
state. The operation's goal
are to increase compliance
of posted speed limited, and
to reduce the number of
speed-related deaths and in-
juries in the state.
All available FHP person-
nel will participate in Opera-
tion Safe Ride including
troopers and supervisors
normally assigned to non-pa-
trol functions. Enforcement
efforts will be focused on ev-
ery interstate, Florida's turd-
pike, and other major state
roads in Florida where
speeding and aggressive
driving are prevalent.

longer considered an imper-
sonable gift and most people
would rather pick out their
own gift in their own time,
rather than having to take a
gift back to exchange.
Buy or give from the heart
and you know you will never
go wrong this holiday season.
Happy Thanksgiving and
good luck on your holiday
shopping excursions.

was donated by Laura
LaFramboise and will soon
be the site of the new home
of Gary and Pamela

Electricity

prices on

the rise
Rising coal and natural gas
prices are causing Gulf
Power Company's bills to go
up five percent beginning
Jan. 1, but the company con-
tinues to have the lowest
electricity prices in the state
among major utilities.
Each year the Florida Pub-
lic Service Commission ad-
justs etoctricity prices up or
down to reflect the fluctuat-
ing costs of the fuels used to
make electricity and the costs
to meeteenvironmental regu-
lations' 'Gulf Power's price
for 1,00~ kilowatt hours will
increase $4.57 from $87.91'to
$92.48.
"The rising cost of fuel; par-
ticularly' natural gas, is im-
pacting Gulf Power just like
every 'other company and
resident," said Gulf Power
spokeswoman Lynn Erick-
son. "FIel costs are a straight
pass through to the customer
and as;those costs go up and
down, our prices are ad-
justed.'I-
Of Gulf Power's increase,
$2.55 is for fuel and $1.29 is
for environmental improve-
ments. The other 73 cents is
a combination of higher state
gross receipt taxes and an
increase in the cost of buying
electricity from other utili-
ties.
"These changes are simply
a matter of rising costs that
we incur, just like any other
business.",,Erickson said. "No
one likes an increase, but as
all enegggyprices are rising,
we can take some comfort in
the fact that we're seeing
only a five percent increase
while other areas are seeing
a much higher increases."
The good news for north-
west Floridians is that Gulf
Power's five percent increase
is much less than increases
at the state's other major
utilitiesmy,.imarily because
Gulf Power burns low sulfur
coal, one.of-the most cost-ef-
fective ways to make electric-
ity. Increases at Tampa Elec-
tric and Progress Energy are
more 'than double and
Florida's .Power and Light's
increase of $13.83 is more
that three times Gulf Power's
increase.'





BEACH
FROM FPONT

for recreation, but to build
dunes tp .provide storm pro-
tection,to the roadways and
wildlife;ihich are at risk dur-
ing storms."
The restoration process
will begin either at the end
of this year or early in 2006
to restore the highest revenue
producing stretch of beach in
the county. "The beach will be
raised by'three to five feet to
a standard elevation of eight
feet," Ickel said. "We will
extend1 the beach out from
where tne dune is built some
75 to I25 feet. We will pile up
the sand and plant sea oats
and other native vegetation
either in front of existing
dunes, or create new dunes
where none exist."
When restoration is com-
plete, about seven miles of
coastline will have been re-
stored, as the city of Destin
is jointly restoring 2.1 miles
of beach for one contiguous
stretch of restoration. The


project calls for a 150 days
construction time.
Pickel noted the county
may be applying for permits
for another 15 miles of coast-
line as early as January or
February of 2006 and barring
any administrative chal-
lenges, the process of restora-
tion for the remaining
beaches could start as early
as January 2007. Using the
current restoration cost of
$2.4 million per mile, 15 miles
of beach restoration would
cost around $42 million.
