Resting in peace in Magnolia?


By RON.KELLEY
When a person loses a close
family member to death, part
of the grieving process is vis-
iting that person's final rest-
ing place. For weeks, even
months afterward, those
wives, children or parents
will bring flowers to the
grave site almost daily. Some
adorn it with figurines of
Christ or angels, some leave
small mementoes that have
special meaning for that fam-
ily member. For all, it is a
way to hold onto that
person's .memory a while
longer, a way to continue to
show the depth of love and
loss. : '
: However, several different
local residents recently con-
tacted the Herald-Breeze,
saying they felt they had
been taken advantage of; re-
garding lots in Magnolia
Cemetery: that they pur-
chased from the city of De-
Funiak Springs.
.Patricia'Music bought a.
plot on NMarch 1, just a few
days before her seriously-ill
husband, Bryan. died on
SMarch 3.
Music said she went to City:
Hall and was asked to meet,


with Magnolia Cemetery Su-
pervisor Rick Rodgers at the
cemetery to choose the.burial
site. After being taken to the
newest section and choosing
a site, she returned to City


Hall to sign the purchase
agreement and pay for the
plot.
"No one said anything
about any restrictions or
gave me anything in writing


about what could and could
not be placed on the grave
site," she said.

Police investigate

vandalism in

DeFuniak Springs


By BRUCE COLLLIER
DeFuniak Springs police
are investigating a series of
five incidents of vandalism in
the area. The incidents ap-
pear to have occurred within
the space of a few hours,
early in the morning of No-
vember 23.
The first reported incident
occurred at Evans Funeral
Home on Walton Road. The
owner of the business told
police that he awoke at 3:30
a.m. to find that his electri-
cal power had been switched
off.
When he turned the power
back on, he noticed that sev-
eral funeral home vehicles
had been vandalized, and a
number of potted plants had
been overturned.
Adkinson's report'states
that "Satanic symbols and
vulgar words" had been
scratched into the side of the
vehicles, and that mirrors
had been broken off. Total
damage was estimated at
$15,000.
Later the same day, reports
came into the DFS Police of


other incidents of vandalism
at the Chautauqua Hall of
Brotherhood on Circle Drive,
and at two unoccupied resi-
dences located at 463 and
467 Magnolia Lakes Drive.
Also defaced was the en-
trance sign to Magnolia
Lakes Subdivision. Total
damage to the structures was
estimated at $20,000.
Adkinson described the
defacements in all cases as
being "similar markings and
words" to those at the funeral
home.
Investigators have cor-.
pared these recent acts of
vandalism to those that took
place in south Walton County
several weeks ago, and have
concluded that they are
"similar in design and na-
ture" to those incidents.
Adkinson said that law en-
forcement officers are coop-
erating in the investigation.
He added that the November
23 acts may be related to a
recent series of burglaries in
the Twin Lakes area.
"Our investigation is pro-
gressing," he said.

"but we want to keep our

Although the city has in-
stituted a strict policy in re-

with building rental, it was
agreed that the fee would be
reduced to $400 for the three-

"We need to do anything

said district two Councilman
James Huffman. However,
the council made it clear that
next year the new rates of
$780 would be enforced.
"This is not a money making
enterprise," said district four
Councilman MarkAnderson,
"and the city has had some
significant losses on situa-
tions like this in the past."
The fee reduction passed 3-2

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2005


Annual Tour of Homes scheduled for Saturday


The 2005 Annual Tour of
Homes in DeFuniak Springs
is set for Saturday, December
3, from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Tick-
ets and map for the tour will
be available the day of the
tour from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. at the
DeFuniak Springs Visitors
Center on Circle Drive and
The Big Store on Baldwin
Avenue. Cost is $15 plus tax
per person. The tour is spon-
sored by Partners in
Progress. For additional in-
formation, call 892-2448 or
892-4237.
The seven homes featured
on this year's tour are:
150 Lakeside Drive,
Pine Shores Subdivision.
The majestic contemporary
Greek Revival home is re-
turning to the tour after a
five year absence. Its elegant
eclectic furnishings reflect
the discriminating tastes of
its owners. A visit is sure to
get everyone in the Christ-
mas mood!
40 Minnesota Street,
Camellia cottage, c. 1935.
The cozy home is a wonder-
ful example of how an older
house can be adapted to con-
temporary living without de-
stroying its original charac-
ter and personality. The
home honors its historic
roots, but also functions
beautifully for present-day
living.
620 Circle Drive, c. 1915.
With its aesthetic refined dig-
nity, the American Crafts-
man style home stands in
pleasing contrast to
DeFuniak's "fashionable"
Victorians. It is an excellent
example of the variety of ar-
chitecture that was found in
DeFuniak Springs during the
late Chautauqua Era.
193 Florence Street. The
"North Carolina Cottage"
was completed in 1999. Its
flowing floor plan and unique
"comfort zones" compliment
a relaxed and comfortable
lifestyle. Two skylights and
many windows give the home
an open, airy feel that invites
the outdoors in.
S504 Circle Drive,


Chatwood, c. 1939. The
stately Colonial Revival
home has undergone exten-
sive remodeling recently. In-
cluded is the breakfast room/
porch addition on the west


side that adds so convinc-
ingly to the overall symme-
try of the house. It fools us
into believing it has been
there all along.
196 Crescent Drive, c.


1900. It is believed that two
servant's quarters were
moved and combined to be-
come this larger home on a
choice lot near Lake DeFu-
niak. Thanks to the dedi-
cated efforts of its current
owners, the sassy Victorian
now has the potential to last
another 105 years.
262 Circle Drive, Veran-
das, c. 1904. Dedicated to
authentically restoring the
house, the current owners
have taken great care to re-
turn the house, its contribut-
ing buildings, and the front
fence to their original condi-
tions. Both the main house
and the one-item "maid's
house" are included in the
tour.


"VERANDAS" (c. 1904) at 262 Circle Drive. The Steam-
boat Gothic Victorian is one of only a few old homes in De-
Funiak to undergo an authentic restoration rather than a
renovation/restoration. Even the fence is original others
like it can be seen in many old photos taken around town
during the Chautauqua Era.:


"CAMELLIA COTTAGE" (c. 1935) at 40 Minnesota Street.
Built by a German builder from Chicago who was brought
to DeFuniak by prominent local realtor/developer R.E.L.
McCaskill, the home retains many original features.

ST LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


lamPERSONAL COMMENTS



Editor's Comment


Iraqi money- A

While Editor Ron Kelley is on vacation this week, we present
a guest editorial, written by DeFuniak Springs resident Ray
Padgett.
It's become known that Saddam Hussein received kick-
backs under the 'Oil for Food' program managed by the
United Nations. The "Coalition of the Willing" found mil-
lions of this kickback money stashed in his palaces around
Iraq. Such corruption only works if his trading partners
(large international corporations) agree to pay the kickbacks
and the program managers (United Nations directors) agree
to look the other way. So far, Saddam is the only member of
this manage a trois in prison for his crimes.
After the coalition forces took military control of Iraq, Coa-
lition of the Willing governments set up the Coalition Pro-
visionalAuthority (CPA) under the direction of Paul Bremer,
to manage Iraqi oil and "reconstruction." About $6 billion
left over from the Oil for Food program and other frozen
assets from around the world were turned over to the CPA.'
The CPA then began collecting Iraqi oil revenues over $10
billion the first year following the invasion. In addition to
the tens of billions of dollars being spent on our occupation
of Iraq, the U.S. Congress voted to spend $18.4 billion of
U.S. taxpayers' money on the redevelopment of Iraq. Spend-
ing of this $18.4 billion was placed in the hands of the CPA.
.Based on audits first initiated by the US House of Repre-
sentatives Government Reform Committee Minority Office
headed by Democratic Congressman Henry Waxman, bil-
lions of dollars of this money is unaccounted for and will
probably never be recovered.
Reports documenting this disappearance, of Iraqi and
American money can be found on the following websites -
U.S. Government Accountability Office (www.gao.gov), De-
fense Contract Audit Agency (www.dcaa.mil), International
Advisory and Monitoring Board (www.iambi.info), Coalition
Provisional Authority Inspector General (www.cpa-ig.com),
the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction
(www.sigir.mil) and U.S. House of Representatives
(www.democrats.reform.house.gov).
Consider the following facts.
On April 12, 2004, the CPA handed over $1.5 billion in
cash (part of the Oil for Food money) to a local courier for
shipment. This money filled three helicopters. According
to the CPA Inspector General, they did not check out the
courier and "there was an increased risk of loss or theft of
the cash." This is not a procedural problem there must be
collusion to steal this kind of money.
It's since been discovered that CPA director Paul Bremer
kept a slush fund of over $600 million in cash, including
over $200 million that was kept in one of Saddam's former
palaces. There is no paperwork for disbursement of this Iraqi
money.
Haliburton, the largest single recipient of Iraqi funds, re-
ceived $1.6 billion to import fuel and repair oil fields. Ac-
cording to DCAA auditors, Haliburton overcharges under
this single contract total over $218 million.
Over $600 million was disbursed from Baghdad to four
regions in Iraq for local reconstruction projects. An audit of
one of these regions found that more than 80 percent of the
funds could not be properly accounted for and over $7 mil-
lion was simply missing.
Kellogg, Brown and Root, a Haliburton subsidiary, charged
$88 million for three million meals for US troops that were
never served.
The IAMB discovered that Iraqi oil exports were
unmetered and the Christian Aid organization estimated
that up to $4 billion worth of Iraqi oil has been exported
and unaccounted for. The only reason not to monitor, mea-
sure and document oil being pumped and exported is if you
don't want anyone else to know how much oil is being ex-
ported.
This is only a small sample of the unmitigated attack on
the financial well being of Iraqi and American citizens. The
evidence of fraud, waste, and abuse of Iraqi and American
funds from the very beginning of the Iraqi invasion is long,
constant and continues seemingly unchecked.
No matter what reason this administration uses to justify
their invasion of Iraq, the raiding of the Iraqi and American
treasuries has been consistent from the start.

The American press continues to rail about the lack of a
plan for the occupation of Iraq. However, I believe the real
plan may be working perfectly. Robbery cannot occur in this
magnitude without the citizens of both countries being in a
state of chaos and war. Only massive intervention by Ameri-
can citizens can bring this madness to a halt and bring these
criminals to iusticr.


EDITOR'S NOTE:
The date of Hometown Christmas was incorrectly printed

The Herald apologizes to the DeFuniak Business and Pro-
fessional Association and regrets any confusion or inconve-
nience caused by this error.



Editor:
For the past several years the county has funded local
volunteer fire departments from the general fund. This fund-
ing has been in addition to the yearly MSBU portion of prop-
erty taxes the fire departments receive. The governing of
department budgets, distribution of funds, and long and
short term planning has been the responsibility of the dis-
trict fire boards, comprised of five elected citizens from its
district. At least that is the process of Liberty Fire District
and I believe it is the same for the others. The fire boards
answer to the county through their yearly budget requests.
This year is different. Some districts have dissolved their
boards and turned all operational control over to the county
fire manager. The county has required the remaining boards
to sign a contract in order to receive their funding. This
contract gives all governing decision to the fire manager. It
will be that one person who decides what is bought, when it
is bought, and all long term planning, which basically ren-
ders the fire boards useless. Not only is this an attempt to
dissolve the local elected fire boards, it is a long term at-
tempt to dissolve the volunteer units as a whole.
This is wrong. The dismantling of the volunteer units
should be an open and fair public debate. The volunteer
fire departments of North Walton County have successfully
served their citizens with a professional level of service for
years. They do not deserve closed door, hand forcing tactics
by the county. In addition, the citizens of North Walton
County do not deserve to have their fire services hindered
by lack of funding due to this power struggle initiated by
the county.
Some of the greatest words ever spoken by a US Presi-
dent were, "...the government of the people, by the people,
for the people..." For years, this theme has been embodied
by volunteer fire departments; neighbors giving their time,
money, and labor to support the neighborhood. Instead of
complaining as to why the government (county) doesn't do
more about fire departments, they stood up and took on the
task. The cost to service ratio these volunteers have given
the county can never be matched by a paid fire service. The
county administration and citizens should think long and
hard before dismantling volunteer fire departments. And if
that is the path best taken for the future of the county, let
the decision be made publicly and openly, not forcefully as
is happening now.
I implore you to call your county commissioner to 1) insist
that the funds are immediately released to the district fire
departments without the unreasonable contractual agree-
ments, 2) insist this debate be made open to the public, and
3) voice your opinion, on the future of the volunteer fire de-
partments. Its only through the cries of the citizen's can
the status quo be changed. Robert Wilson
North Walton County


Editor:
Now that fall is nearing it's end and the holiday season is
upon us, another annual DeFuniak Springs event has also
concluded. The 16th annual "End of Summer Blowout", spon-
sored by the Chautauqua Cruisers, was held on November
12th. This event is held each year as a fund raising effort
for this local car club.
With weather that couldn't be beat this annul car show,
held at the Best Western Motel, welcomed over eighty cars,
most of them from out-of-town. Hundreds of spectators
walked the grounds gazing at the well groomed and restored
autos.
Additional fund raising went on during the day with a
local Relay for Life team raising almost five hundred dol-
lars selling food and a raffle and 50/50 provided funds for
local Guardian Ad Litem volunteers.
As president of the Chautauqua Cruisers I would be re-
miss if I did I not thank those in our community who helped
us this year both financially and with donations of merchan-
dise. Our biggest thanks go to American Finance and Na-
tional Tire Brokers who generosity helps us each year put
on this show. We would also like to thank, I Stop Auto Shop,
Advance Auto Parts, Allstate Insurance, AutoZone,
Carquest, Consolidated Ace Hardware, Craig's Car Care,
Ed's Restaurant, Firestone, Hinson's Wrecker Service, J.B.'s
Chinese Buffett, J & I Collectibles, Lily's Cafe, Mary Kay
Cosmetics, McLain's Family Restaurant, McLean's Florist,
New-Tel Communicatiohs, Pig Daddy's Barbeque, Pizza Hut,
Radio Shack, Rainbow Florist, Randell's Barber Shop,
Scooter's Lawn Service, Sears, Sonic Restaurant, Stage,
Sterling Lumber Company, Thelma Baker, Wal-Mart, and
Winn Dixie. All of these businesses deserve your patronage
for their commitment to.helping this community.
Little known to most local residents is the fact that all of
the money raised by this local club goes right back to the
community. To date this car club has donated to local chari-
ties and individuals in need almost $20,000, and soon will
be giving again to help those less fortunate at Christmas.
And last but not least by any means I would like to thank
all of the club members who were there to work this event.
They worked from very early in the morning until almost
dark setting up, working throughout the show hours and
then putting everything away. They worked like a well oiled


machine producing one of the best shows in the club's six-
teen year history. Thank you to everyone for ajob well done.

President, Chautauqua Cruisers


Editor,
My business was one of the places hit in last week's van-
dalism spree. Most of my damage was confined to vehicles
including my casket coach. News travels fast and before noon
I had several calls from friends, neighbors and concerned
people in our area.
Response by Triangle Chevrolet was immediate. For ob-
vious reasons, my business must have a casket coach at our
disposal at all times. There was about $16,000 in damage to
the casket coach, but Triangle arranged for the unit to be
back operational by Friday evening. There are some cos-
metic repairs that will have to be made (parts on order) but
I was amazed over Thanksgiving weekend that the over-
haul could be done. The coach had to be completely sanded
and repainted on Thanksgiving Day. Our flower van was
also vandalized but to a lesser extent. Our friends from New-
Tel Communications were on sight at 4 a.m. helping us to
get back "opei'ational" before sunrise.
The point of my letter is this. The most comments I re-
ceived were about the police department. I will share with
you protocol for our funeral home. The persondriving the
unit is responsible for gasing up the unit and making sure
the unit is locked and keys are turned in. If any electrical or
air-conditioning work is done in the facility the person who
unlocks the high voltage power panel on the outside of the
facility is responsible for.locking the panel box and turning
the key in.
In our case, the vandal or vandals opened the power panel
which had been left unlocked and turned off power to the
entire facility so they could vandalize' under cover of dark.
Our security system and phone system all went down as a
result of loss of power.
Upon investigation, I found that after our last service at
Darlington Baptist Church, I had planned to use the flower
van to take the live potted plants to the family's home.
It is me who failed to lock the flower van. It was also me
that forgot to lock the power panel after electricians had
finished in the chapel last week. These two oversights on
my part aided the vandals in corqpleting their "fun."
Our police department cannot be everywhere at every
minute. We as residents and business owners and citizens
must take steps ourselves to ensure our homes and busi-
nesses and vehicles are locked; that our sheds and out build-
ings are secure; and that we take a watchful eye on our
neighbors and surrounding homes and businesses. Law en-
forcement responded within minutes to my call. They were
knowledgable, aware, alert and knew what to look for.
Frankly, I was very impressed and very thankful. I spend a
lot of time at my facility and I am a very early riser.;At any
given time, day or night, now and many months before this
incident happened, have seen city police cars making their
rounds on a continuous basis. Seldom does an hour go by
without seeing some type of law enforcement in the area.
I have signed a contract with a security company for ad-
ditional (battery back-up) surveillance cameras with record-
able tapes. It is a costly endeavor, but unfortunately in the
society we live today a necessary one.
Accolades of praise from Jerry Evans to Triangle Chevrolet
Buick, New-Tel Communications and especially our friends
at DeFuniak Springs Police Department and WCSO.

'Editor:
If I may, I would like to add a few caustic comments to
Barbara McLellan's letter to the editor which appeared in
last weeks paper.
I think the board of county commissioners is playing a
game similar to the US Military policy of don't ask, don't
tell. If the commissioners don't ask their attorney if what
they are doing is wrong then he won't tell them it is unlaw-
ful. Thus should anyone file an ethics complaint, the ethics
commission can always say "There was no criminal intent."
Please recall when the BCC wanted to give $250,000 of
your money, out of state, they asked the county attorney if
it was lawful. His response was that it was not. Thus the
commission remains on record of wanting to help but being
prohibited from doing so by law. It is my belief if the com-
mission were to ask if it was permissible to fund Shelter
House Inc. in Okaloosa County the county attorney would
advise them the expenditure of public funds out of county is
unlawful. In my view the citizens of Walton County are
just as unlikely to benefit from money sent to Okaloosa
County as they would be from money sent to Mississippi.
I think there are several more of the commissioners chari-
ties that are not for the public good and are Yet another
don't ask, don't tell but that's another letter for another time.

Harold Gillis exhibit on display


Walton County Heritage

white pick-up
Walton County Public
Works received numerous
calls requesting collection of
white goods such as old ap-
pliances throughout the
county. Homeowners can
dispose of such materials at
the county landfill, but many
do not have a means of trans-
porting them to the landfill.
To meet this demand, Wal-
ton County will pick up used
white goods from Dec. 12,
until Jan. 11. This service
will be provided by the Mos-
quito Control Division using
the county's newly purchased
grapple truck.
For maximum effective-
ness of this pick-up residents
must place all white goods to
be collected within ten feet
of the curb or roadway, but
not within the roadway.
Crews will not be allowed
to go on private property to
remove materials for pick-up.
Walton County residents
who would like to take ad-
vantage of this service should
contact Marilyn Wasson at
(850) 892-8108 to give their
location and a description of
the items to be picked up.
Pick-ups will not begin un-
til Dec. 12, but early requests
will help planning to make
the most of this effort."

day season, the Domino's
Pizza store located at 100
East Hwy. 90 will be asking
customers to add a dollar to a
order to benefit the kids at St.
Jude.
During this year's Thanks
and Giving- Campaign,
Domino's is joining a long list
of celebrities (including Anto-
nio Banderas, Morgan Free-
man,, Faith Hill, Sarah Jes-
sica Parker, Ray Romano, and
Robin Williams), retail and
corporate sponsors in an ef-
fort to ask shoppers to give
thanks for the children in
their lives who are healthy by
giving to those who are not.
Domino's goal is to raise a $1
million, including a guaran-
teed donation of $500,000
from Domino's Pizza, Inc., in
addition to the money raised
at the stores.


"We know how to deliver
pizza, but St. Jude delivers
hope to seriously ill children
and families around the
world," said Scott Magnes,
owner of the DeFuniak
Springs Domino's Pizza.
"Adding a dollar to a order is
a simple way to help the many
children who benefit from the
work done at St. Jude. I en-
courage everyone to add a
dollar to a order this holiday
season to benefit the kids at
St. Jude."
St. Jude Children's Re-
search Hospital is interna-
tionally recognized for its pio-
neering work in finding cures
and saving children with can-
cer and other catastrophic
diseases. Every research
breakthrough at St. Jude is

hicular crash fatalities for
the Thanksgiving holiday
period.
These preliminary figures
pertain only to crashes inves-
tigated by FHP, for the holi-
day driving period from No-

The 37 deaths occurred in
29 separate traffic accidents.
Three of the fatal accidents
involved alcohol, 10 were not
alcohol-related, and 16 are
listed as "unknown."


Eight of the 37 dead were
pedestrians, two were bicy-
clists, and one was a motor-
cyclist.
In 76 percent of the fatali-
ties, persons in vehicles nor-
mally equipped with safety
belts were not wearing them.
Of the 37 fatalities, 23 oc-
curred in the hours of dark-
ness.
During the same holiday
period, FHP troopers ar-
rested 88 people for DUI, is-
sued 7,368 citations for

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2005


MAGNOLIA
ceived the deed for the plot in
the mail and information
about the burial plots was
included.
Music said that from the
very first day, she and family
members had not only placed
flowers on the grave of her
Husband, but mementos, re-
ligious figurines, small
American flags and other
trinkets. Two potted plants
has also been placed next to
Sthe headstone.
Over time, she noticed that
some of these items would
suddenly be missing. When
questioned, cemetery staff
said they knew nothing about
the missing items.
Music's husband, born in
Rtina Croatia, became a U.S.
citizen and was a decorated
veteran. He received a
veteran's footstone, which
was first set in place at an
angle. This was handled
through the funeral home.
Music said the footstone was
later dug up and set into the
S ground flat by cemetery em-
ployees. The stone was set too
deep and had to be set a sec-
ond time.
Music said she contacted
S the funeral home and was
told that the markers are
S supposed to be slanted and
S set at an angle. She said she
toured the cemetery and
found other veteran's mark-
ers that are still set at angles.
S Music said she asked a cem-
etery maintenance worker
about her husband's footstone
being changed and was told,
"That's the rules."
On September 19, Music
received a letter from cem-
etery supervisor Rick
Rodgers informing her that
she had items at her
husband's grave site that
were not permitted by city
ordinance 607, which states
that the only permanent ob-
ject allowed is the headstone.
The letter also said that she
could have flowers at the
grave site as long as they are
not in excess and are in good
taste. The letter gave Music
five days to remove every-
thing else.
Music said she did remove
s6rn'e of the itemsrincluding
the potted plants." She said
she did not remove every-
thing because other grave
sites around hers also had
items that supposedly were
not permitted and yet were
not targeted.
At that point, Music con-
tacted the Herald-Breeze and
asked for help. Shortly after
this, another local resident
contacted the Herald-Breeze,
voicing many of the same
complaints.
On Oct. 15, Music received
another letter telling her that
her husband's grave site was
still in violation. Although the
letters were di fferent, the gist
of the letters was the same.
The Herald-Breeze con-
tacted DeFuniak Springs
City Manager Kini Presnell
about the 'complaints.
-Presnell said she was not
aware of any problems, but
asked that the newspaper
urge these citizens to meet
with her directly to seek a so-
lution.
The Herald-Breeze relayed
the message and Patricia Mu-
sic said she went to City Hall
to see Presnell, who was not
there that day. When Music
asked to make an appoint-
ment, she said she wa's told
by a staff member that "it
won't matter if you make an
appointment, rules are
rules."
Music did later get in to see
the city manager and she said
Presnell was pleasant and
they had a very civil meeting.



COUNCIL
FROM FRONT
that the meeting scheduled
December 26, 2005 would be


cancelled because of the
Christmas holiday. It was
also agreed that city offices
would be closed on December
23 and reopen December 27.

Plus 1 PHOTO

THESE PEEWEE FOOT-
BALL players and cheerlead-
ers were honored by the
DeFuniak Springs City Coun-
cil at their recent meeting and
congratulated on their win-
ning season.


From Front
Music said she asked that two
potted plants and some angel
statuary be allowed to remain
and Presnell seemed to agree.
Music said Presnell prom-
ised to meet with cemetery
staff and would contact her
again. A week later, Music
said Presnell called and told
her that everything but the
flowers had to be removed.
"I told her that I would be
willing to do that as long as
everyone else around my
grave site does it, too," said
Music. "She (Presnell) said
they had to start somewhere
and that some of the other
families might live out of
town and be hard to reach.
Well, that's not fair. What's
right for one should be right
for all. I'm not going to be the
only one abiding by the
rules."
"My husband wasn't born
an American, but he loved
this country. He served two
tours in Vietnam and then
went to work for the Veteran's
Administration. He spent 43
years in service of his coun-
try and now this city govern-
ment wants to tell me how his
grave site can be decorated?"
she asked. "I,promised I
would always stick by him.
Just because he's gone, that
hasn't changed."
Leona Locklear also con-
tacted the Herald-Breeze with
a similar story.
Her son, Jeremy, died on
Thursday, August 11, and she
purchased the plot on Friday.
Locklear met Rick Rodgers at
the cemetery and discussed
the fact that no marble strips
or chipped rock could be
placed around the grave and
no live flowers could be
planted. She said Rodgers
told her that any flowers that
can be picked up and moved
while they cut the grass
would be fine. She chose a
plot and said the meeting
lasted about 15 minutes.
Locklear went back to City
Hall to purchase the plots
and said she was given no pa-
perwork about restrictions
and no one said anything to
her at the time about any re-
strictions. The actual deed
Should not arrive for weeks. ,
Locklear said that on the
day of her son's funeral, she


placed two crosses of flowers
at the grave. Beneath these,
she.placed a small ceramic
figurine. Because her son
loved to fish, she attached a
small fishing lure to one of
the flower arrangements. The
next day, the ceramic figure
and the fishing lure were
missing.
Locklear's family soon got
a letter saying the footstone,
which was set several inches
above ground, and a cement
angel had to be removed.
While at the cemetery, she
saw Rick Rodgers and asked
him about the grave site. She
said he told her that if it were
up to him, there wouldn't be
any headstones "or any other
junk" out there because 'it's
a hassle to mow around."
When she asked why she
wasn't informed about this
when she bought the plot, she
said Rodgers told her that.
they didn't think that was the
right time to be discussing
grave site restrictions with
families.
Locklear said she went to
City Hall, but the city man-
ager was not in. She says she
was told by a city employee
that, if she were unhappy
with the city's restrictions,
she should "have him dug up
and taken somewhere else."
She said Kim Presnell did
call and speak to her hus-
band. She said Presnell
apologized for the inconve-
nience. "She told my husband
she was new to the job and
not aware of the specific re-
quirements," she said. "He
asked if the footstone could be
allowed to remain and she
said yes, if it were flush.with
the ground. So, we went back
the next day and buried the
footstone and took the angel
home. None of the missing
items were ever returned."
Locklear also questioned
the city's ordinance regarding
poor taste. "Who's to say
what's excessive or in poor
taste? Everybody believes a
different way. '
"Had I known about those
restrictions, I would not have
put my son there. My hus-
band did not want it there in
the first place, but I felt like I
had no choice, a decision had
to be made that Friday. But
nobody said a word about-
these restrictions that day.
The only thing they wanted


was the money up front. I
clearly remember all that was
said and I was not confused
or befuddled.
"I disagree with this ordi-
nance. How can I own the plot
and the city own it, too? And
to have such a notice come a
month after Jeremy died it's
like grieving twice. That's
where they got me."
The Herald-Breeze has also
talked to two other families
regarding problems at Mag-
nolia Cemetery. They both
said they would speak only on
the condition of anonymity,
because they feared reprisals
from city employees regard-
ing the grave sites of their
loved ones. Like the Musics
and the Locklears, they say
there were not informed of
any restrictions at the time
they purchased their lots, ei-
ther verbally or in writing.
They say that things have
disappeared from the loved
one's grave sites and have
never been returned. They
also wanted to know who de-
cides what is in'good taste' for
the city.
The Herald-Breeze con-
tacted Kim Presnell and
spoke with her and DeFuniak
Springs Mayor Harold Car-
penter, who sat in on the
meeting.
Presnell said these families
are mistaken about receiving
no information about the re-
strictions at the time of pur-
chase. "I would find that very
difficult to believe. There may
have been some cases where
copies of the written policies
were not given, but verbal in-
structions were always
given."
Presnell also said she dis-
counts reports that staff had
ever been discourteous to
anyone. "I've never seen any-
one be insensitive to a mem-
ber of the public. In fact, I've
seen other people be rude to
them, but they've just dealt
with it.
"This is a difficult time for
family members and it's not
always easy to remember ev-
erything that's been said.
Some things may have been
misinterpreted, too," said
Presnell.
She said the cemetery re-
strictions were adopted on
June 14, 1993 and apply to all
new plots in any part of the
cemetery with one excep-


United Fire District asks to be dissolved


By DOTTYNIST
Walton County will soon
set a public hearing at which
the United Volunteer Fire
District may be dissolved.
The move comes at the re-
quest of the fire district's
board members, according to
Walton County Fire Manager
Eddie Rivers.
'Created in 1984, the
United Volunteer Fire Dis-
trict serves the Woodlawn
area. Problems with the fire
district's finances first be-
came apparent when the
district's latest audit report
was brought to the attention
of the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) on Oct. 25.
The auditors' report indi-
cated that district manage-
ment "could not locate signifi-
cant portions of its account-
ing records" and that there-
fore auditors could not per-
form auditing procedures on
the "basic financial state-
ments" or provide an opinion
on these financial state-
ments.
The auditors' report also
noted that in August 2005
the fire district was subpoe-


naed to furnish "various fi-
nancial and operational
documents" to the assistant
state attorney for purposes of
an investigation.
Pending resolution of the
situation, county moneys
budgeted to fund the fire dis-
trict for the new fiscal year
were not transferred. In-
stead, the district was di-'
rected to submit bills to the
county finance office for pay-
ment.
Additional problems arose
when, in November, the
county finance office received
$22,911 in unpaid bills from
the United Volunteer Fire
District for previous fiscal
year expenditures.
On Nov. 8, Walton County
Finance Director Bill Imfeld
suggested that the BCC ask
the fire district "how they
will overcome this insol-
vency."
On Nov. 11, Fire Manager
Rivers reported that he had
met with the.United Volun-
teer Fire District's board
members and that they had
requested that the county
dissolve their fire district,
assume the unpaid debt, and


take possession of all district
assets.
Rivers presented the com-
missioners with a letter re-
questing the dissolution.
District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones commented that
it is essential for the BCC to
make sure this course of ac-
tion is consistent with the
wishes of the Woodlawn com-
munity.
County Attorney David
Hallman told the commis-
sioners that an ordinance
and a public hearing would
be required to dissolve the
fire district. The date for the
hearing has not been set at
this time, but it will be pub-
licly noticed.
Citizens will have -the op-
portunity for input and com-
ment at the hearing.
District 4 Commissioner
Ro Cuchens made a motion
that the county proceed with
the payment of the district's
outstanding bills. His motion
was approved unanimously.
The DeFuniak Herald-
Breeze was unable to reach
the United Volunteer Fire
District for comment on these
matters.


tion. Once every other plot in
every other section has been
sold, the mostly vacant area
fronting U.S. 90 will be
opened and it will contain no
granite or marble headstone
monuments. There will be
only a flat, brass plaque with
a single brass flower holder.
She said this was to facilitate
easier maintenance of the
grounds.
Regarding her conversation
with Patricia Music, Presnell
said that she had agreed to
allow Music to permanently
mount statues to the base of
the headstone and suggested
a kind of "saddle-mount" that
might fit over the edges of the
monument itself that would
hold additional flowers. "Any-
thing there would have to be
affixed to the monument,"
she said.
Mayor Carpenter said that
the city would be naming new
members to the cemetery
board of trustees and there
has now been a new policy
put in place whereby
Presnell's assistant, Joanie
Runge, would hand out a
written copy of the cemetery
'ordinance and restrictions at
the time of the purchase of
any cemetery plot. Also, cem-
etery supervisor Rick
Rodgers would also go over
the restrictions verbally. Fur-
ther, the purchaser would be
required to sign a form say-
ing they had received a copy
of the ordinance and restric-
tions.
Carpenter also pointed out
that the current ordinance
gives the city the right to re-
move floral arrangements or
other displays within five
days after internment.
Presnell said live potted
plants can be placed at the
grave site, but must be re-
moved within a reasonable
amount of time. When asked
how long that would be, she
noted that the ordinance does


PATRICIA MUSIC, whose
husband is buried at Magno-
lia Cemetery says she's seen
no peace for her family be-
cause of confusing gravesite
restrictions.


not specifically say. However,
she and Carpenter decided
that it should be five days.
However, the ordinance
says something different. In
Section 6-11, part D-5, the
ordinance reads "Small pot-
-ted plants or floral arrange-
ments may be placed on
burial plots as long as they
are not excessive and are in
good taste."
The Herald-Breeze asked,
"Who is this arbiter of good
taste?" Mayor Carpenter re-
plied, "Rick Rodgers."
Regarding the missing figu-
rines and other mementos,
Presnell said whenever they
are removed, they are not just
thrown away, but are kept for
an unspecified period of time
on the cemetery grounds so
they can be reclaimed by the
owners.
Presenell said, "We are go-
ing to review this ordinance
soon, but we're not being un-
fair or trying to single anyone
out. Everyone must abide by
the rules."

SChristmas


2005


The 2005 Hometown Christmas event was a huge
success, by any measure.
Weather was windy but there was no rain. The
DeFuniak Springs Business and Professional Asso-
ciation (DBPA) reported that 90 vendors from all
over the southeast brought crafts of every imagin-
able style.
The event, which was originally held on the Fri-
day after Thanksgiving in downtown DeFuniak
Springs, was moved to the Walton County Fair-
grounds in 2004 and changed to Saturday due to
inclement weather too many years in a row and a
decrease in vendors and attendees. Although, DBPA
board members were concerned about the change,
it was so well-received that they decided to con-
tinue the change this year, too.


Pictures Continued on 14B


Despite some confusion about the date, enough people found
their way to the fairgrounds this year to make it the best-at-
tended event in the festival's history.
It was estimated that approximately 5,000 people spent their
Saturday shopping for friends, family and themselves.
Few people went home empty-handed. Artists and crafters gave
away dozens of their own items as prizes for the strolling crowd.
Three people won season passes to Christmas Reflections Judy
Edwards, Betty Wood and Judy Pemberton. A youth, Jeremy
McKinney, guessed how many M&Ms were in a large glass
bottle and won the whole thing. He came within 26 M&Ms of
guessing the exact amount 1,126. Bob and Jeanie Greene won
a brand new color T.V. from Badcock Home Furnishings.
Some of the vendors are already asking to be included in next
year's event and DBPA event organizers are already at work
planning for the an even bigger celebration in 2006.

Open Door Community Club learns self defense


JIMMY MACON speaks to
the Open Door Community
Club about self-defense.


With the current world not
being as friendly as it once
was, Open Door vice-presi-
dent and program chairper-
son, Anne Ryan, thought it
would be a prudent idea to
have an expert come and
demonstrate how a person
can protect themselves.
Jimmy Macon's expertise
in self-defense was readily
noticeable as he described
different confrontational
situations that one might
come in contact with and how
to effectively defend our-
selves from the attacker.
Macon stated that in 90
percent of the cases of an at-
tack, a handgun would be of
no use, most likely because
of inaccessibility before or
during the attack.
Macon, with Open Door
member, Robin Newton,
serving as his assistant,
showed a wide variety of de-


fenses depending on the situ-
ation, If the victim can, he
or she should hit the attacker
on the tip of the nose as hard
as they can. This will cause
the attacker's eyes to tear up,
their nose to bleed and will
inflict serious pain that goes
straight to their brain center.
He said to use the fist or the
palm of the hand. If the vic-
tim breaks their nose, it is
better than that person dy-
ing or being injured. The vic-
tim can also gouge their eyes
or if they are wearing
glasses, hit them sideways.
Jimmy and Robin demon-
strated each of these moves
for the audience.
Macon also said that if the
victim gets the attacker's
blood on their hands, that it
is harmless unless they have
open cuts on the hands.
Another strategy that they
demonstrated was called
"popping the ears." In this
strategy, the victim simply
slaps both ears at the same
time, which causes the at-
tacker to become disoriented,
in pain and affects their
sense of balance. Run and
scream is a good rule of
thumb.
What if a person is grabbed
from behind? Macon demon-
strated how to use the elbow
to hit his or her nose. The el-
bow is the strongest part of
the upper body. Hitting the
side of the neck with the side
of the hand also sends an im-
mediate pain signal to the
brain of the attacker. If the
victim has access to the so-
lar plexus, they can use the
open hand and hit perpen-
dicular to the chest. If the
attacker is face on with both
Hands on the victim, the vic-
tim should'knee' the attacker
in the groin. The victim can
also use their shoes as weap-
ons to step hard on their foot
or kick them in the shins.
The breasts of both men
and women are very tender
and another strategy is to
squeeze a handful of the
breast as hard as they can.


The pain for the attacker is
excruciating and the victim
can usually get away from
their attacker.
Macon and Newton also
demonstrated several ways
the victim can react when
confronted with a gun. He
also said that if a person
lives alone or in a rough
neighborhood, he suggested
that they carry a broom
handle with them when an-
swering the door. Keep the
broom handle out of sight of
the person at the door, but it
can be used for protection if
needed.
Macon held the attention of
the audience spellbound, and
many wanted to know if they
could take lessons,in self-de-
fense. Macon said that it
would take about five lessons
and that he would have spe-
cial lessons for ladies if he
had five ladies that would
want to form a class. Many
said that they would take the
Classes. Macon holds regular
karate classes at Maude
Saunders Elementary School
in the afternoon.
Macon can schedule classes
after school before 4:30 p.m.
and after 6 p.m. during the
week. Macon can be reached
at the Walton County Board
of Education Attendance Of-
fice where he also serves as
the schools' county atten-


dance officer.
Macon also serves his
country in the United States
Army Reserves; is the com-
mander of the Walton County
Civil Air Patrol and is a pri-
vate investigator, all creden-
tials of his expertise in law
enforcement and self-de-
fense. Many of the members
are going to take the class
and learn to protect them-
selves.
Vice-president Anne Ryan
then conducted the regular
meeting in the absence of
president, Barbara Mc-
Lellan, by welcoming guests,
Ann Dees and Linda
Johnson. Secretary's and
treasurer's reports were read
and approved.
It was announced that sev-
eral members have moved.
Shirley Ziglar to northern
Alabama; Jane Wright to
Boas, Alabama and Jean
Reddick to South Carolina.
They will be missed.
Members, Betty Henry and
Anne Ryan, donated beauti-
ful autumn decorations and
door prizes. Winning door
prizes were Shirley
Sandoski, Lana Campbell,
Shonteria O'Neal, Joyce
Campbell, Inge Clark, Robin
Newton, Carleita Levy, Sally
Orlosky, Susan Blocker,
Diane Hall and Christine
Whatley.

Winter hummingbird program, Dec. 7


THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2005


The incredible hummingbird migration


By: DARA DOBSON
WALTON COUNTY
MASTER GARDENER

Once the cold weather ar-
rives we see few if any hum-
mingbirds. The mature
males can actually start their
migration as early as July.
Most of the females and im-
mature birds will follow by
October. Hummingbirds do
not migrate in flocks, but fly
alone. These incredible little
birds fly unaccompanied
thousands of miles almost
non-stop. When it is time to
migrate a natural instinct
greater than hunger will tell
the bird to fly to a warmer
climate. There is, however, a
population of hummingbirds
that stick around during the
winter. Because of this fact,
many experts will suggest
you leave at least one feeder
out after October and
through the winter months.
Natural sources of food are
significantly reduced when
winter arrives. Leaving a
feeder up and full will con-
tribute greatly to the survival
chance of migrating birds
and lone birds that decide to
stay for the winter. Hosting
a wintering hummingbird is
a commitment. Your feeder
will still have to be cleaned
and syrup changed to stay
fresh. The winter mixture
remains the same: 4 parts
water to 1 part sugar. The
mixture does not need to be


boiled. The water just needs
to be warm enough to dis-
solve the sugar well. The 4:1
syrup mixture will start
freezing when the tempera-
ture drops below 27 degrees.
To make sure your winter
friend has food, you can
clamp a shop light near the
feeder. This will allow the
syrup to remain in a liquid
state in near zero tempera-
tures. The light should be
placed about three feet from
the feeder to prevent a fire
hazard.
Hummingbird migration
patterns and tendencies are
still being researched. The
data is complied from band-
ing efforts that track each
individual bird. Each species
has its own strategy for mi-
gration. The date collected
suggests that the birds fly
approximately 18 miles per
day. The bulk of the popula-
tion has normally vacated
the United States by Novem-
ber 15. It generally takes
about 18 to 24 hours to fly
across the Gulf. They rest for
the winter in the warmer cli-
mates of Central America
and Southern Mexico.
There have been 13 species
of hummingbirds banded in
the eastern United States. If
you keep your feeder up
through the winter months
you may have a migrating
bird of a species other than
the ruby-throated type come
and visit and possibly stay


through the winter months.
The hummingbirds will not
be harmed by the mild win-
ters in this area.
If you have a wintering
hummingbird choose your
yard the Hummer/Bird
Study Group would like to
come band the bird. Banding
is harmless to the birds and
provides a valuable tool for
research. You may have the
same bird return for several
years. Hummingbirds live
approximately 3 to 4 years,
but have been documented to
have survived as long as 12
years.
For more information
about wintering humming-
birds and the banding pro-
cess you can contact master
bird bander Fred Bassett. He
is a federally licensed bird
bander who specializes in
documenting western hum-
mingbirds wintering in the
eastern United States.
(fhound@aol.com, 334-244-
0227).
As a special winter treat
The DeFuniak Springs Gar-
den Club will host a "Winter
Hummingbirds" program
presented by Fred Bassett.
The free event will be held
December 7, 1:30 p.m. at the
Chautauqua Building on
Circle Drive and is open to
the public. Holiday refresh-
ments and a basket raffle will
follow the program. For more
information call 859-0096 or
892-0624.

Good time to prune trees


Other than raking up fall-
ing leaves, colder weather
usually means the season for
yard maintenance is over.
But don't worry, for those
avid yard workers, there is
still work that can be done.
This time of year is actually
a good time to prune trees
- except for those that
flower in the spring.
Trees are dormant in the
winter, making pruning
easier because you can bet-
ter see a tree's structure
when no leaves are on the
branches. "Proper pruning
can be an important part of
tree health maintenance,"
said Jim Skiera, executive
director of the International
Society of Arboriculture
(ISA). "Just be aware that
each tree is different, and
pruning at the wrong time or
the wrong way can injure a
tree or make it susceptible to


disease."
Pruning helps keep sur-
rounding areas safe for
people and objects by remov-
ing dead or broken branches.
But too much pruning can
create more problems than it
solves, Skiera added, advis-
ing homeowners to prune
annually and lightly instead
of all at once. When in doubt,
consult a local ISA certified
arborist for advice.
Deciding what and where
to prune involves an under-
standing of basic tree biology,
sharp tools, and an artful
eye. Where you make the cut
is as important as knowing
what to remove. There are a
few simple principles to un-
derstand before you prune:
Always have a purpose in-
mind before you cut. Remov-
ing dead or diseased wood,
providing clearance, or im-
proving structure are most


common.
Proper technique is essen-
tial. Poor pruning technique
can cause long-term damage.
Learn how to make proper
cuts. Small cuts do less dam-
age to the tree than large
cuts. Unlike people, tree
wounds do not heal, they
close. Smaller cuts close
quicker.
Make cuts just outside the
branch collar for quick
wound closure. Avoid leaving
stubs. Keep tools sharp and
clean.
Remember that pruning
large trees can be dangerous.
If pruning your tree cannot
be done without using power
equipment or leaving the
ground, then it should be left
to a professional arborist. You
can find more tips on how to
prune trees at

Hog Show and


sees another record


BY Odon Russell

The 2005 Walton County Youth
Market Hog Show & Sale was
held during the week of October
17-22, 2005 in conjunction with
the Walton County Fair. This year
set a new record for the selling
price of the Grand Champion
bringing $6.025 per pound. The
Reserve Champion went for $5.
per pound.
Much gratitude and apprecia-
tion goes to the very generous
buyers that came out and bought
pig(s) at prices that ensured the
young people made a good return
on his/her show pig. Also much
appreciation goes to several board
members and others that got the
buyers to come out and bid.
The third free BBQ was held for
the buyers, the youth participat-
ing and their parents in this
year's show. Many thanks go to
Mr. James and Michael Robbins
and to several parents and inter-
ested adults from the community.
This year's Grand Champion
award went to Jay McDaniel, a
'member of the Paxton FFA
Chapter. It was purchased by
Larry Bell, of Gum Creek Farms,
Inc., at a price of $6.025 per
pound. Cameron Morgan captured
the Reserve Champion slot, which
was purchased by Martha Ingle,
at a price of $5. per pound. Prices
for the remaining pigs range from


$1.51 to $3.03 per pound.

James Robbins, of Robbins
Hydraulics of Paxton, presented
each of these young people a $50
bill for their winnings. Great
appreciation goes to Henry Alford,
who continually comes back and
serves as a auctioneer for the
event. Thanks to his ring men,
Dale Anderson, and Jim Wasson,
who kept the sale lively with their
selling tactics. These three guys
could hardly talk when they had
finished, but had a good time and
so did the audience.
There were a total of twenty-six
head of hogs in this year's show
and sale, which were almost as
many as last'year's event. The ani-
mals were divided into two weight
classes. The heavy class had a
range from 240 to 265. pounds,
while the light class weights
ranged from 205 to 238 pounds.
Jaret Tyus, of Sneads, served as
the judge for the Hog Show and
Showmanship contest. The top ten
winners of the heavy class were:
(from first to tenth) Jay McDaniel,
Geoffrey Griffin, Paxton FFA,
Austin Arnold, Susie Thomas,
Laura Ashley Anderson, Aubrey
Anderson, Alan Cassaday, and
Josh Cox. Ranking in the top ten
in the light class were (first to
tenth) Cameron Morgan, Jay
McDaniel, Katie Kinkey, Lee
Jackson and Kandace Cox.

Tri-States Cattle Co., Driver
Mower Services, Charles C.
Harris, A-1 Mini Storage, Inc.,
Triangle-Chevrolet Buick, Inc.,
and Doctor's Medical Center, all
bought hogs from the youth.
A great boost again to this year's
events was the sponsorship of all
prize money, ribbons, and plaques
by Pig Daddy's BBQ Restaurant
in DeFuniak Springs. Many
thanks goes to Mr. and Mrs.
Shawn Cosson for their donations.
Many thanks and appreciation
also goes to the sponsors that con-
tribute to the student's projects,
and the persons that assisted get-
ting the right pig(s) out of their
pens into the show or sale and
back again to their correct pen.
Thanks goes to Mr. Benson
Campbell, Sr. for his generous
help year after year, and to
Sharon Rigby for her continued
excellent photography services to
the event.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2005


Lead us not


into temptation


By Dr. Robert M. Jaye

This section of the Lord's
Prayer (Matthew 6:13)
teaches that prayer is not
just an escape hatch. Our
Lord teaches us to pray for
God's help even before we
actually feel a need for that
help. We pray that God will
lead us around temptation.

SOur Lord encourages us to
pray for His leadership


through our trails. Trials are
good for us (James 1:2-12).
We often learn to pray
through trials and tempta-
tions. Many have learned to
pray through some deep
trouble in life. Our faith is
often strengthened by trials.
Trials often teach.us what is
really important in this life.
Some never find the abun-
dant life'Jesus gives until
some sort of trial or tragedy
comes upon them.


Trials are universal. Jesus
said, "Watch and pray, that
ye enter not into temptation"
(Matthew 26:41). "Into" is
the key word in this section
of the Lord's Prayer. When
we yield to temptation, we
have fallen "into" it. Our
Lord was tempted, yet did
not fall into sin. He was
tempted by the trial of self-
preservation. Satan wanted
Him to turn stones into
bread. He was tempted to
doubt God. Satan tempted
Him to jump from the top of
the temple and receive the
applause of men. Jesus' re-
ply was, "Thou shalt not
tempt the Lord Thy God"
(Matthew 4:7).
Stay on guard at all times.
Remember to say, "Get thee
behind me, Satan." Pray ev-
ery day and often during the
day. Constancy in prayer
brings consistent strength for
Christian living. As you ask
for deliverance from the
temptations of Satan, ask
also to be delivered closer to
god.
Practice the presence of


God. Do that by being ready
to live each day in the pres-
ence of the God who sees and


knows everything we do. We
must watch for, pray for, and
look forward to the second


coming of Christ, but why
wait until then to live for
Christ.


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
price. We are that kind of funeral home.

Reaching Around
the World



The

Helping

Hands of

Harold

Qualls

By Robin Newton

Harold Quails and his wife,
JoAnn, live in Paxton. If you
ask around, folks would say
Harold is a plumber and elec-
trician. They have watched
as his competent hands re-
paired their faulty wiring or
leaky pipes. But the helping
hands of Harold Quails reach
farther than they can imag-
ine.
About once a year, while
his neighbors go about their
usual routine, Harold and
three of his friends go about
their usual routine: traveling
to India to pass out Bibles.
Their mission is simple.
They go from school to school,
passing out Bibles to anyone
who wants one. At the end of
their journey, they hold a
Pastor's Conference to teach
and enjoy the fellowship of
pastors living and working in
India.
This year, Harold, Tom
Batson, Ron Raitt and Danny
Jureczki (known as Big
Uncle) are in the state of
Andhra Pradesh. For the next
ten days, they will visit
schools and distribute 50,000
Bibles. Some will be written
in English, but the majority
are written in the native lan-
guage ofTelugu.
The remaining foui days
in-country are spent sponsor-
ing a Pastor's Conference.
Five hundred pastors are reg-
istered to attend the confer-
eice this year and, as Harold
explains it, approximately
one hundred more will find
their way. Some walk all day
and night to attend the ser-
vices.
The day begins very early
as Harold andohis partners
are awakened before daylight
by singing. Throughout the
conference, lessons are
taught and voices will be
raised in song late into the
night. All attendees are
housed and fed. Funding is
provided for the pastors to
return to their homes in In-
dia after the conference.
Although he's been visiting
India since the late 90's,
Harold's most memorable
time came about when the
group was traveling along a
narrow country road, looking
for a place wide enough to
turn their bus around so they

The Beechgrove Church of
God will be having a

Wednesday, Dec. 14 begin-
ning at 7 p.m.
Everyone is invited to come

The church is located six
miles south of Ponce de

Qualls


could return to their lodging
for the night. They had vis-
ited their last school for the
day and everyone was very
tired and hungry for supper.
Still, they kept pushing
ahead, searching for a clear-
ing that would accommodate
the turning of the large bus.
The road seemed to go on
forever. Even the Indians on
the bus were uncertain of
their exact whereabouts. Fi-
nally, as they approached a
clearing, they noticed a school
that was unknown to the
guides and interpreters.
Venturing inside, they
were surrounded by children,
and they didn't waste a mo-
ment. Bibles were handed out
to nearly 400 excited stu-
dents. As they prepared to
leave, the men noticed that
the head masters of the
school were crying, not out of
grief, but out of gratitude for
answered prayer. The leaders
of the school, so distant from
civilization that even the
guides were unaware of their
existence, had been praying
for those Bibles for years.
There are those in India
who not only make this trip
happen, but also make it
more enjoyable. Sam Kalawa
is the contact in India who
sets up the conferences and
plans their routes to visit the
schools. John Joseph is an-
other team member who joins
them in India. Joseph, a
former cook in a 5 star hotel
in India, is now a Pastor him-
self, but takes time out to join
the group and cook for them
for the duration of their jour-
ney.
This endeavor of faith and
generosity is not one without
cost. Harold and his friends
are responsible for their own
travel expenses, and that

means buying round-trip
ticket to India every time.
This can be a special chal-
lenge to a hard-working man
on an average income.
Harold tells of a year
when paying for the trip es-
pecially difficult. The airfare
came due on a Friday. It was
Wednesday, and with his bills,
Harold had no idea how he
would find the money to pay
for his ticket. As he went to
bed that evening, he turned
to the Lord for help. "You
don't tell Him what you want
or need, you just tell him the
problem and He sorts it out,"
explains Harold.
The next morning, he was
stopped at a crossroads on his

way to a call, when a truck
pulled in front of him. A
gentleman got out of the
truck and asked if Harold was
"that fella who gives Bibles
away in India." Harold said
he was, indeed; that man.
The stranger then asked
how much the trip would
cost. "Fifteen hundred for
airfare," replied Qualls. But
the stranger wanted to know
the full amount. Harold said
he figured around two thou-
sand dollars. At that point the
gentleman handed Harold two
thousand dollars.
"This is how it always hap-
pens," explains Quails.
"People hear about it and the
money is always there. The

In Loving Memory
of
James (Jim) Edward McCormick
November 11, 1946-November 30, 2004


















He touched our lives, he blessed us all, he helped all those in need.
He knew his time and took the call, and now his soul is free.

It has been a year since the Lord has taken you home, but our pain of
your loss from us it seems like eternity. If we have learned only one
thing through this its that God will never leave us or forsake us. He has
been here through this storm and we will praise Him and lift our hands
to Him for He is who He is no matter where we are. He has been here
with every tear we have cried and has held our hands, and has never
left our side. Yet our hearts are torn, He has given us the strength to
carry on, because He is where our help comes from, the Maker of
Heaven and Earth.
SI know without a doubt you would be singing to us:

When I get where I'm going, on the. far side of the sky,
The first thing that I'm gonna do is spread my wings and fly.
Gonna land beside a lion, run my fingers through his mane,
Where I might find out what its like to ride a drop of rain.
When I get where I'm going, there will be only happy tears,
I will shed the sins and struggles I have carried all these years.
Now I'll leave my heart wide open, I will love and have no fear,
When I get where I'm going, don't cry for me down here.
'So much pain and so much darkness, this world we stumble
through,
All these questions I can't answer so much work to do.
When I get to where I'm going, and I see my Maker's face,
I'll stand forever in the light of His Amazing Grace.
There will be only happy tears, I will love and have no fear.

You were a man who never questioned the mission God sent you on.
In your life and your words you shared with us you fought the good
fight, you finished the course and kept the faith. We know that you, an
adored son, beloved husband, wise father, faithful friend, compassion-
ate pastor have been granted God's medals of Grace. You are now
forever singing praises to His Name, the King of Kings and the Great I
Am.

For our love has a seal upon our hearts and is stronger than death,
it has a fire that waters cannot quench.

We love you and miss you so much, you will be forever with us,
and you left us so many precious memories.

Your loving wife Kathy, son Eric, daughters Carla and Shelly,
grandchildren Christopher, Cara, Megan, Miranda and Ethan

quarter of the contest as the

27 points and Jeremy Dunbar
added 22 points as Walton
overcame early foul trouble in
the first half to claim victory
in their home opener.
Walton, which carried 16
players on the roster due to
no junior varsity contest,
played everyone in the 32-
minute contest. Kenny
Walker scored 10 points to
add to the Walton attack and
the Braves suffocating de-
fense forced numerous turn-
overs in route to the victory.

Sports News & Notes


by PATRICK CASEY
If there is a high school football game to be at this Friday
it is probably Lakeland at Niceville in a Class 5A playoff game.
Assuming you can find a seat, Lakeland(13-0) and
Niceville(ll-1) could put on a classic playoff game just down
the road in Niceville.
Kickoff is 7:30 local time and should produce one of the
larger crowds in recent history for the Eagles. Pace(13-0)
will play at Ponte Vedra Beach Nease(ll-2) in a Class 4A
state semifinal. Pace edged Panama City Mosley last week
31-28 and I can't help shake the feeling that the Patriots are
going to lose this week, on the road.
Graceville(9-4) will play for a state championship in the
newly created Class 1B state title game on Thursday at noon
against Lakeland Evangel Christian(10-3) at Florida Inter-
national University in Miami. Likewise for Port St. Joe who
got a bye week with Jacksonville University Christian being
tossed out of the playoffs for using three ineligible players.
of Port St. Joe(12-1) will play Fort Meade(9-4) at 6 p.m. Friday
ry, night for the Class 1A title.
e- High school football teams who got bounced from the play-
he offs last Friday include Blountstown, Madison County, and
r's Pensacola Washington. Blountstown found out why Ocala
i- Trinity Catholic was ranked #1 as the Tigers got pounded 43-
a 0 in Ocala by the home team. Madison County's defense was
l- not of championship caliber and it showed in their 29-14 loss
pa to South Sumter in Class 2A. Washington committed five
i's turnovers in losing to St. Augustine in Class 3A.
The OWC men's team won both of their games at the Com-
ug fort Inn Classic in Niceville last weekend. OWC beat

Saturday. The OWC women lost their first game of the sea-
son as Central Florida got revenge in Niceville by dropping
the Lady Raiders 72-66 after OWC had beaten Central Florida
in Ocala last weekend. The Raiders did manage a 72-35 rout
of Hillsborough to improve to 8-1 overall, going into this
weekend's Daytona Beach Classic in Daytona.

Seminoles are latest team to fall from top 25


By CHUCK HINSON
It was just another day for
Florida State, by means of
keeping their losing streak
alive. The Seminoles fell
hard to the Florida Gators in
the Swamp this past Satur-
dau night, 34-7.
The latest of three losses
for FSU came after losses to
Clemson and North Carolina
State. The humiliating
slaughter dropped the Semi-
noles from the top 25 polls
across the board.
It is the first time since late
November of 2001 that the
Seminoles have not been
ranked in the top 25 poll.
They are the seventh
ranked team to drop out of
the polls. Other previously
ranked teams were Tennes-
see, Michigan, Oklahoma,
Iowa, Louisville and Purdue.
Oklahoma was ranked at
the No. 7 spot in preseason,
but lost two of its first three
games and has remained
unranked ever since. They
had been ranked in the top 25
since 2000.
Two weeks after Okla-
homa fell out of the rankings
in October, Michigan slipped

out of the top 25 spots after a
2-2 start, ending a streak of
114 straight weeks in the top
25 rankings and the longest
winning streak in the nation.
The biggest shock, besides
Florida State falling into the
shadows, was for Tennessee
fans across the country. The
Volunteers dropped out of
the Top 25 position for the
First time in three years after
suffering four losses for the
season.
Tennessee started out in
the No. 3 spot of both the AP
and USA Today polls.
After Saturday nights loss
to the Florida Gators and
joining a not-so-celebrated
list of teams, the Seminoles
gained their third straight
loss. It is the first time since
1983 the Seminoles suffered
that many losses in a row.
Despite FSU not finishing
in the top 25 in the preseason
polls, they will still be going
up against No. 5 ranked Vir-
ginia Tech this Saturday in
Jacksonville, for the ACC
championship. The Hokies
are favored heavily to win
the game and the conference.

news, the top ranked teams
stayed nearly untouched this
week as the regular season
for most colleges comes to a
close.

No. 1-ranked USC, now
boasting a record 32 straight
wins, was off this past week-
end, but wraps up their sea-
son on Saturday against
intrastate rival, No. 1-
ranked UCLA. Even with a
possible loss to UCLA, the
USC Trojans and No. 2-
ranked Texas could face off
in Pasadena at the Rose
Bowl/National Champion-
ship game on Jan. 4.
LSU, Penn St and Virginia
Tech all had wins this week-
end and all remain at the No.
3- No. 5 spots.

The only movement in the
top 10 was Ohio State. The
Buckeyes leaped one spot
over the Notre Dame Fight-
ing Irish who had their
hands full this past weekend.
Despite the Irish 38-31 vic-
tory over Stanford, it was not
enough for them to remain at
the No., 6 spot, thus sliding
them into the No. 7 position.

Teacher certification

OWC receives state

approval for Florida

teacher certification


Okaloosa-Walton College
has received full state ap-
proval to provide the only
educator preparation Insti-
tute in the two-county region
to offer an alternative fast-
track route to a Florida
Teacher Certificate.
OWC will begin its insti-
tute in mid-January with a
two-semester format de-
signed to have graduates
ready for certification and
teaching positions by the
start of school this coming
fall (2006).
"OWC has been involved in
teacher education almost
since the inception of the col-
lege, through provision of the
first t.'.-years of classes nec-
essary for a four-year educa-
tion degree," noted Dr. Jill
White, OWC senior vice
president.
"The new institute is a logi-
cal next step for the college,
especially in light of the
teacher shortage in the state
an.d nationwide." White


noted that, "This is a faster,
more flexible route to reach
the same teacher certifica-
tion goal offered through a
traditional baccalaureate de-
gree program. The new OWC
Educator Preparation Insti-
tute will offer a great option
for those who desire to
change careers and enter the
rewarding career of teach-
ing." OWC is now accepting
applications for those inter-
ested in beginning the pro-
gram in the January session.
The 21-credit program
will be offered at OWC's nor-
mal tuition rate of $55.45 per
credit hour for a totaltuition
cost of $1,164 for in-state
residents. Financial aid is
available. White noted that
the EPI program may be
completed in two semesters
or approximately 6 months.
For more information on
OWC's EPI program or for
admissions information, call

Point Washington



gets green light



for historic, district


By DOTTYNIST
Walton County will be
hearing more and more
about Point Washington as
wdrk gets underway on es-
tablishing the small commu-
nity as a historic district.
On Nov. 22, the Walton
County Board of Cddhty
Commissioners (BCC) voted
unanimously to support the
creation of a historic overlay
district for Point Washingt on.
The old.settlement area of
Point Washington dates back
to the 1880s, when it was
known as a lumber town. Ac-
cording to 30-year resident
James Foley, eleven struc-
tures in the community are
old enough to be included on
the state register of historic
places.
On Nov. 22, District 1 Cdm-
missioner Scott Brannon,
who moved to approve mov-
'ing forward to create the his-
:toric district, also identified
:the need for "a pause in plan-
ning" as the overlay is devel-
oped.
District 5 Commissioner
:Cindy.Meadows also voiced
:strong support for the his-
toric district.
"I think it's well called'for
and needed," she said.
A recent outcry from the
Point Washington cominu-
nity for a historic designation
has coincided with commu-
hity concerns about the Oaks
at Eden, a subdivision pro-
posed for CR-395 within the
Old settlement area. At ap-
proximately six units per

"It's a very passionate de-
bate that you in the local
community will have to
have," said Matthew Click.
Representing the Florida
Turnpike Enterprise, Click
was in Walton County on
Nov. 22 for what he described
as a "get to know you meet-
ing" with the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC.)
As Walton County and the
state Department of Trans-
portation strive toward the
goal of getting U.S. 331, the
county's lone evacuation,
route, widened to four lanes,
the accompanying expansion
of the Choctawhatchee Bay
bridge has been identified as
the major obstacle due to pro-
jected cost of that expansion.
The bridge expansion
would come at a cost of $500
million, 25 times the amount
allocated by the state to all
of Northwest Florida yearly
for road capacity improve-
ments.
While very controversial,
the toll bridge option may
well be the only option for
getting the bay bridge wid-
ened within the next 25
years, according to state De-
partment of Transportation
(DOT) District 3 Secretary
Edward Prescott.
Prescott said he could
think of only two other pos-
sibilities to fund the project,
both less' than satisfactory.
One would be waiting for
DOT to replace the bridge
due to unsound condition,
which could take a long time
since it is not very old and is
in good shape. When main-
tenance-related replace-
ments are undertaken, im-
provement's to take facilities


well into the future may ac-
company the work, he ex-
plained.
The other option would be
to identify the bridge as a
future capacity project in the
district, but it would take so
many years to secure the
funding, "we'd all be gone,"
Prescott said.

Click explained that a goal
of the Florida Turnpike En-
terprise, which is part of
DOT, is to meet the state's
growing transportation
needs.
"We are a business, we sell
transportation value," he
said.
* But, unlike most busi-
nesses, he explained, the
turnpike enterprise returns
any money made back to its
transportation system.
Click said the Florida
Turnpike Enterprise com-
prises the Florida Turnpike
System, encompassing all of
Florida's statewide toll roads,
along with other DOT owned
and DOT operated roadway
facilities.
The system is "primarily
user financed" he explained,
and receives no tax.revenues.
Click said the turnpike en-
terprise finances all projects
through revenue bonds and
can leverage $14 for every $1
borrowed. $4.7 billion in ex-
pansion is planned over the
next five years, he added.
In order to qualify for in-
clusion, projects must dem-
onstrate a public need, local
support, economic feasibility,
and environmental suitabil-
ity, he continued.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows asked what
would be the time frame for
the toll bridge project if ac-


cepted by the turnpike enter-
prise.
Click responded that it
could be accomplished within
seven years with all funding
lined up and in the absence
of competition for the same
funding.
Prescott noted that the
project has the advantage
that project development and
environmental studies for it
have already been com-
pleted, the need has been
identified by the state, and it
has the support of the
Okaloosa-Walton Transpor-
tation Planning Organiza-
tion.
"We are already quite far
along with the process," he
remarked.
Meadows asked if it would
be possible to do a toll bridge
and then remove tolls at a
future date.
The response was bad
news. "The tolls would never
go away," Click answered.

He explained that, once the
bridge construction was paid
off, toll revenue would get
reinvested into the turnpike
since the rest of the system
would have been helping
subsidize the local project for
20 or more years.
County Administrator
Ronnie Bell asked if DOT
had considered adding sec-
tions on both sides of the ex-
isting bay bridge to widen it.
Prescott answered that
that would be a potential op-
tion. He was not sure if it
would cost less or more than
replacing the bridge.
The commissioners dis-
cussed the Mid-Bay Bridge,
which was constructed by a
see BRIDGE 3C


THE COST OF WIDENING the US. 331 bay bridge has been identified as the major
obstacle in the effort to widen US. 331 from U.S. 98 to the Alabama line.


Beach restoration bid awarded


BY LEAH STRATMANN
In a special meeting Mon-
day, Nov. 28, the Board of
County. Commissioners ac-
cepted the low bid of the
Great Lakes Dredge and
Dock Company of Oak Bfook,
Ill. for the 7.1-mile beach res-
toration project scheduled to
begin at the end of the year.

The winning bid of $22.8
million was bid for the entire
project, but 31 percent of the
cost will be paid for the City
of Destin for 2.1 miles of the
total project of close to seven


miles.
Walton County's share of
the project cost is $15.78 mil-
lion, which will be entirely fi-
nanced through the short-
term bed tax and state
grants.
Director of beach manage-
ment Brad Picket said 3 mil-
lion yards of sand ci O cu-
bic yards of sand per foot will
be used to elevate and extend
the existing beaches. "Boats
will get the sand offshore
from the East Pass much like
a giant vacuum cleaner and
bring it to the area being re-


stored." Pickel estimated
anywhere from 100 to 150
feet of restoration per day for
the duration of the project,
which is currently scheduled
for 150 days.
"The entire project, is
scheduled to be completed
prior to June 1. We will have
a restored beach in place
prior to the beginning of the
hurricane season," Pickel
said.
Pickel said those wishing
to chart the progress of the
project would be able to view
maps on the web at


www.protectwaltoncounty
beaches.com.
Commissioner Cindy
Meadows made a motion to
award the bid, which was sec-
onded by Larry Jones and
passed unanimously with an
aye vote from Scott Brannon.
Commissioners Rosier
Cuchens and Kenneth
Pridgen were not in atten-
dance.
"The beach restoration
project will be monitored by
Taylor Engineering Com-
pany, Walton County coastal
engineering company of


records, 24 hours a day, seven
days a week, to ensure we
don't have a breakdown in
the process," Pickel noted.
The cost of this supervision
is $544,922.50. Pickel asked
for a motion to pay these fees
"to insure the project we are
paying for." The motion was
made and carried unani-
mously.
The final piece of business
associated with the beach
restoration project was the
selection of the bank, which
will loan the county the $8
million dollars needed to add


to existing funds for the
project. Finance officer Bill
Imfeld reported that eight
companies responded to the
loan request, with the best
rate of 3.49 fixed being of-
fered by Sun Trust of
Pensacola. Imfeld noted this
would be a draw down loan,
to be repaid over 10 years.
A motion was made to per-
mit the Tourist Development
Council to accept this loan
and passed unanimously.
There being no further busi-
ness, the meeting was ad-
journed.

Very successful tour


Scenic 30-A Corridor highway update


"The Scenic 30-A Corridor
Advocacy Group hosted a
very successful corridor tour
on Oct. 27, 2005 as part of the
Florida Scenic Highway
Program's designation pro-
cess. The tour is designed to
elicit initial reaction from the
Scenic Highway Advisory
Committee as to whether a
roadway might meet the
state's criteria before effort is
made to proceed further in
the designation process. Par-
ticipants from a number of
state agencies and the Fed-
eral highway administration
who comprise the committee
each completed a survey at
the end of the tour.
Feedback provided by
Laura Haddock, Florida De-
partment of Transportation
Scenic Highway Coordinator
included very positive com-
ments on the tour and the
efforts of the group; Re-
sponding to the survey ques-
tion, "How would you rate
today's tour and why?" every-
one gave a "High" score. Ex-
amples of some of the com-
ments are:
"One of the best! Very or-
ganized. Great variety high-
lighting all resources.
Speakers were amazing and
interesting. Thank you for
all the hard work!"
"Loved the regression of
new development to history,

eas. Excellent tour and great

of them in one awesome
package."
"Very rewarding. I was
exposed to many of the natu-
ral, scenic, and recreational
resources that I did not know
existed in the area. I was
pleased to hear about the
great partnerships between
private developers and the
community."
According to Ms. Haddock,
"It is easy to see from these
comments that all the time,
effort, and teamwork paid off
handsomely."
The next task facing the
Scenic 30-A Corridor Advo-
cacy Group is the develop-
ment of the Eligibility Appli-
cation. This activity will re-
sult in a document that will


include examples and docu-
mentary evidence of all the
intrinsic resources found
along the 30A corridor that
are required for designation
as a Florida Scenic Highway.
Area residents who are in-
terested in this designation
or want to participate in this
ongoing process are invited to
attend the monthly public
meetings held in the Tourist
Development Council office.
These meetings are nor-
mally held at 5 p.m. the 4th
Thursday of each month.
A November meeting will
not be held because of the
Thanksgiving holiday. For

the designation, Claire
Bannerman is the Corridor
Advocacy Group Coordinator.

FROZEN WATER PIPE PRECAUTIONS


Every winter, many homeowners face the expense and inconvenience
of frozen water pipes. But, you can cross that off your list of winter
worries by taking a few precautions.

Disconnect and drain all outside hoses. Detaching the hose allo%\s \water to drain from the
pipe. Other wise, a single hard overnight freeze can bursi either the faucet or the pipe it's
connected to.

BRIDGE


"stand-alone" bridge author-
ity, not as part of the turnpike
system.
Prescott said the authority
had done very well and had
paid off the money that was
borrowed. Now they are look-
ing at the possibility of build-
ing a "sister bridge," to in-
crease capacity, he said, along
with a bypass around
Niceville and other projects.
The tolls on that bridge.
now $2.50, have continued.
"Even when you pay the
mortgage off, you still have to
roof your house," Click analo-
gized, referring to'bridge
maintenance.
Prescott noted that, as part
of the turnpike system, the
county would have help with
its "burden" from the rest of
the system and that there
would be a guarantee that the
system would pay off the
money borrowed if the tolls
did not-. -
Choctaw 'Beach resident
Wayland Davis was present
to register his displeasure
that the BCC was. consider'-
ing a toll bridge.
"If this goes through, we'll
lose the heart and soul of
Walton County," Davis com-
plained.
He charged that a toll
bridge would create,"two
classes of people," one paying
the tolls and the other "reap-
ing the benefits and profits."
"A toll bridge would become
an impediment to both com-
mercial and private travel
and liberty of movement," he
commented.
District 1 Commissioner
Scott Brannon noted that
seeking federal assistance
with replacement of the
bridge, based on local military
impacts, would be another
possible option. He suggested
that the county pursue that
possibility through lobbying

quipped.
"It's not appropriate, it
doesn't fit and yet they've
been through the proper pro-
cess," Butle, concluded.
Dana Matthews, an attor-
ney representing the develop-
ers, the Henderson brothers,
noted that the project has
been "pending for a year."
In recent meetings with the
community, the developer
agreed to a number of condi-
tions, -he reported, among
them the preservation of the
larger oak trees, relocation of
the subdivision pool. and re-
duction of the number of
buildings from 29 to 27. How-
ever, no agreement with the
community had been
reached.

South Walton Community
Council celebrated 10 years of

"For the past 10 years,
SWCC has not wavered in its
mission to preserve and pro-
tect the quality of life and
natural environment of south
Walton County, primarily
through citizen oversight of
local government," Meg
Nelson, long time member
and incoming treasurer of the
organization, said.
SWCC was founded in
1995 as a response to the col-
lapse of savings and loan
businesses when vacant
lands in south Walton County
reverted to the government
with the failure of the banks.
Nelson said, "The so-called
Resolution Trust lands be-
came the property of the state
and that is how south Walton
County came to be such a
greenbelt along the coast.
The founders of SWCC par-
ticipated in the disposi-
tion and planning of those
properties-some of which
were given to Walton County.

They are hoping for further
density reduction and a re-
duction in height to a maxi-
mum of 32 feet, he said.
Also at thd Nov. 22 meeting,
Blackshear said that recent
staff research had revealed
that the development site
consists of two parcels, one
classified as Traditional
Neighborhood and one as
Neighborhood Planning Area/
Infill. The proposal had pre-
viously been considered and
advertised as Traditional
Neighborhood.
Due to this discovery,
no vote on the proposal was
taken at the meeting. In-
stead, a motion to continue'
consideration of the project to
the Dec. 13 BCC meeting was
approved.
Blackshear also said that
she would bring information

toric overlay to the commis-
sioners at the first BCC meet-

ing gators, and a beautiful
Spanish lodge still operating

trips to take en route to that
other part of Florida.
