Walton County Chamber of



Commerce shows off new logo


By LEAH STRATMANN
A full house gathered for
the monthly luncheon of the
Walton County Chamber of
Commerce last week when
chamber president Dawn
Moliterno unveiled a new
logo and detailed new levels
of member participation in
the pro business organiza-
tion.
Before turning the pro-
gram over to Moliterno, John
Forrester ofAmSouth Bank,
the luncheon sponsor, de-
tailed the growth of the bank
in Walton County. "We will be
adding 12 new.jobs to the
payroll in Walton County and
continue to move forward as
local economy will continue
to grow,"he said.
Forrester detailed specific
changes within AmSouth
saying the offices in Grand
Boulevard will be adding
staff as well as compiling a
mortgage team, leasing offic-
ers, and loan originators
while maintaining the
branch bank in that location.
Further, the Sandestin office
will become a real estate and
construction office.
As the program returned
to Moliterno, the first item of
business was introducing the
new corporate identity of the
Walton County Chamber of
Commerce. "The new logo, a
compass, stands for guidance
and leadership," she said.
The logo was designed at no
charge by a firm in Nashville,
TN., that works closely with
the South Walton Tourist De-
velopment Council.
The entire membership
packages offered by the
chamber have been over-
hauled and renamed. The
new, tiered financial invest-
ment memberships have
packaged services to mem-
bers' individual needs.
Among other things,
Moliterno said the new pack-
aging will provide clarity and
focus, accountability, provide
a competitive advantage and
increase market share. She
said the five fee levels ofpar-

CHAMBER PRESIDENT DAWN MOLITERNO poses with the new chamber logo,
showing a compass and a new slogan.


ticipation are called enthusi-
astic, energized, engaged, ec-
static and exclusive emerald
investor. "As you move up, the
value intensifies," Moliterno
proclaimed.
Another change is to have
looped commercials for mem-
bers on a plasma television
in the lobby of the south Wal-
ton County office. A single
full-time staff person has
also been added to the DeFu-
niak Springs office.
Moliterno stressed the im-
portance of business develop-
ment tools to members, say-
ing that plans are in the
works for business forums
and business leads, VIP re-
ceptions, board and training
room discounts, and provid-
ing members with member-
ship disks.
The Walton County
Chamber of Commerce and
the Destin Chamber of Com-
merce are also collaborating
in a program called ECEL,
Emerald Coast Emerging
Leaders. Created by a six-
person taskforce,.ECEL now
has 141 members from the
two chambers. According to
* Moliterno, through a mixture


of educational and social ven-
ues, this organization would
encourage young profession-
als in personal and profes-
sional development, confi-
dence building, and connec-
tions to the community and
each other. It appears to be a
new twist on the existing
Leadership Walton program.
"We are truly excited to be
collaborating with the Destin
Area Chamber of Commerce
on this project. It made per-
fect sense to take advantage
of its success developing this
program. For us, it means
being able to provide a pro-
gram in such high demand to
our members. It ultimately
benefits all members of both
organizations," Moliterno
said.
Beginning Jan. 1, mem-
bership in the organization
will be available to Walton
County Chamber of Com-
merce members at the same
rate it is offered to Destin
Area Chamber of Commerce
members. The cost for mem-
bers is $50 per year and $100
per year for non-chamber
members.
In the next several


months, the website for the
organization will be fully re-
vamped. The new site will
provide a community calen-
dar, jobs link, printed and
online business: directories,
and interactive maps. The
new site is modeled after
those currently in use at
Sandestin Golf and Beach
Resort and at Seaside.
"We have a two-year plan
to visit all members to help
provide a very personalized
approach," she said. In addi-
tion to this will be the devel-
opment of area councils. The
first target areas are DeFu-
niak Springs, Freeport, and
south Walton County. This
grass roots approach will
help the chamber to further
streamline and packages the
services offered.
Moliterno also unveiled
plans for a new monthly
business journal set to
launch in January, which will
replace the current, newslet-
ter. The 24-page magazine-
quality publication will' de-
but the last Friday in Janu-
ary and be a supplement to
the Northwest Florida Daily
News.


School board



joins fight



against DOE


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County School
Board met on Monday, De-
cember 5, at the Tivoli Ad-
ministrative Complex in De-
Funiak Springs for what will
be their only meeting of the
month as the board voted to
cancel their regularly sched-
uled meeting on December
19.
The board voted 5-0 to join
other school boards around
the state in a lawsuit with
the Florida School Boards
Association that is challeng-
ing the Florida Department
of Education's ban of the use
of the co-teaching model to
-meet class size reduction.
The lawsuit boils down to
the mathematics of using
more than one teacher in a
classroom of students, yet not
getting to count the second
teacher toward the student/
teacher ratio.
The Florida Department
of Education issued a memo
on July 13 suggesting the
banning of this practice,
prompting the lawsuit re-
sponse by those school
boards deciding to pursue
relief.


In other news, the board
discussed implementing a
policy that would ask the
public to refrain from men-
tioning students' names dur-
ing the public comments por-
tion of the school board meet-
ing.
Several area students
were named by a member of
the audience during a meet-
ing in the fall over an alleged
criminal incident that took
place off school campus. The
names of some of those men-
tioned at that meeting were
broadcast over a local radio
station, prompting a request
that the board help to protect
minors from having their
names released during the
public comments from now
on. The board agreed to be-
gin the public comments por-
tion of the meeting from now
on by asking commentators
to not mention students'
names when they have the
opportunity to speak.

The next regularly sched-
uled meeting of the Walton
County School Board has
been rescheduled to Tuesday,
January 10, at 5 p.m.

Four day pilot program



County employees like shorter week


By LEAH STRATMANN
In the wake of high gas
prices and gas shortages im-
mediately following hurri-
canes Dennis and Katrina,
the county government be-
gan a 60-day pilot program
of four-day week for many
county divisions. As the pilot
program is drawing to a
close, Walton County Admin-
istrator Ronnie Bell has
asked department heads for
input from various divisions
in order to evaluate whether
or not the program should
continue.
Bell, who heads a four-per-
son division, said, "the pro-
gram is working well in our
division. I've had to come in
on three of the Fridays I was
supposed to be off for meet-
ings, but otherwise it is go-
ing well and everyone seems
to like it."
Pat Blackshear, who over-
sees the planning and devel-


opment services division
comprised of 58 people, said
all but two of her division
staff is enthusiastic about
the program. She pointed out
that building inspectors are
not included in the group of
f6ur day a week employees
due. to the nature of their
work.
"It's a recruiting tool for
us," Blackshear said. "We
have at least 20 people driv-
ing at least 50 miles one way
to work, because they cannot
afford to buy property in
south Walton County. Our
employee needs are so spe-
cific, it is not always possible
to recruit from ,vthin the
county, so telling ; .-.spective
.employees they only have to
drive in four days is a plus.
"Under this program, we
are open to the public for 50
hours a week instead of 40,
allowing those who want to
check on zoning permits or


anything else the option of
coming in at 7 a.m., before
going to their own offices, or
coming in at 5:30 p.m., after
their own offices close,"
Blackshear noted. "As far as
I'm concerned, it's a win-win.
Not only has there been a tre-
mendous fuel savings for us,
but it brings a balance to the
division. I sincerely hope we
stay on this program," she
said.'
Blackshear said the only
negative is making sure to
schedule all department-
wide meetings between Tues-
day and Thursday.
The finance division,
headed by Bill.Imfeld, has 17
people working on.the four-
day schedule.
According to Imfeld, "only
one is less than enthusiastic
about it. We have expanded
our service to the public by
one hour each day, opening at
6 a.m. and closing at 5:30


p.m. with no new personnel
being added. We did some
extensive cross-training in
order to backstop -all of the
functions that need to be per-
formed and, absent the mad
clamor for additional days off
during the holidays, we seem
to have absorbed the addi-
tional schedule without dis-
ruption to our customers or
our employees. It has re-
duced the amount of sick-
leave time taken, since most
are now scheduling doctor
and dental appointments on
the extra day off."
Imfeld said none of the fi-
nance division employees
take vehicles home so, while
"the county is not saving gas
dollars from my division, the
employees are incurring only
four-fifths of their normal gas
consumption. With gas prices
what they are, they have
liked that aspect a lot."
Imfeld concluded, "Obvi-


ously there is still some fine-
tuning to be done, as un-
planned obstacles occur. But
by taking a team approach to
our work efforts, very little in
the way of delays in service
has occurred."
South Walton Tourist De-
velopment Council executive
director Kriss Titus said the
program was working well in
her division as well. "It's
working okay, but I'm a five-
day-a-week person myself. I
believe there have been some
scheduling issues for full
staff meetings, but overall,
people seem to like it."
Bell will be collecting data
from all division regarding
the program with a deadline
of Dec. 13 for employee and
division head input. After
that time, it will be a decision
of the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
whether or not the program
will continue.


Similarly, to save fuel and
address shortages, Regional
Utilities was also on a four-
day work week for a few
months, but has since re-
turned to a five-day week.
According to general man-
ager Mike Standley, the util-
ity company saved money
while using the four-day
week. "However, the days are
getting short now and we
have people working on the
side of the road. It is hard to
put in 10 hours of work dur-
ing the daylight with short
days."

Standley says the utility
company may return to the
four-day week in the spring
because the employees seem
to like it and public service
was not affected. Typically, a
four-day week enables a por-
tion of the staff to have Mon-
days off, and another portion
to have Fridays off.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


PERSONAL COMMENTS




Editor s Comment




Buy, sell, develop


By RONKELLEY

I have followed, with interest, the county commissioners'
transmittal of comprehensive amendment proposals to the
Florida Department of Community Affairs.
The original was a huge, bloated document, filled to burst-
ing with small and large scale amendment proposals. It was
sent to the DCA for approval, as required by law. Instead,
the DCA sent it back, asking for clarification of many of the
issues.
A few days ago, the commissioners sent back their response.
If it does any better this time, it will be due in large part to
the tireless efforts of Walton County Planning Director Pat
Blackshear and her staff, who have been working very hard
to answer every objection and clarify every murky issue iden-
tified by the DCA.
As part of the commissioner's plan to stamp out unem-
ployment by hiring every person in Walton County, hers is
one of the few thoughtful and intelligent hires I've seen in
recent months.
If the amendments are approved this time, some local de-
velopers will get one last big Christmas present before land
sales begin to settle down.
I have several friends who are developers and real estate
agents and some of them have lamented the amount of state-
owned preservation land and greenways in Walton County.
They argue that it's their God-given right to develop every
other available square inch of dirt or, in the words of the
old Joni Mitchell song, "Pave Paradise and put up a parking
lot."
As someone who remembers when a person could use the
word pristine to describe Walton County and still do it with
a straight face I disagree with the notion that everyone
that owns property has the responsibility to develop it to the
fullest extent allowed by law and to also try to elect anyone
whose interpretation of the law might allow even more de-
velopment.
All of us have seen what happens when land is over-devel-
oped and we all agree, in principle, that we don't want that
to happen here. The question, of course, is whose interpre-
tation of "over-development" do we trust?
I would like to say that we should trust the county com-






Editor,
I enjoyed studying the pictures printed in the 11-24-05 is-
sue of the Herald4-reeze of the DFS of yesteryears. It pro-
vides a glimpse of life long ago, a time when there were no
telephones, radios, TVs, and auto so rare they were a curi-
osity.
On page 10-B, the 'early settlers', picture you identified
the vehicle the ox was hitched to as a "cart". That, my friend,
is a )ne-horse wagon. A cart had two wheels, not four. It
was c.'lle' one-horse because it was designed to be pulled by
one a:' m.__, usually a horse or mule, but a good ox would do
nicely.
When th, virgin timber was being cut from this and other
areas irn he ate 1800's and early 1900's the ox was a com-
mon draft a ,,nal. These very strong and durable animals
pulled the huge "ox carts" or "log carts" that moved the logs
from the woods to the saw mills or to a stream to float the
logs to a stream-bank mill.
In some cases the huge logs were pulled to railroad tracks
and loaded on trains, which carried them to a sawmill usu-
ally near a town, thus the term "log-train" came into exist-
ence.
Though some families became wealthy in the lumber busi-
ness, most endured tremendously hard labor to make a mea-
ger living.

missioners, but some of them are so pro-development that
it's difficult to put much trust in their oversight. I also fear
that some commissioners are voting to approve amendments
that they know almost nothing about and do not understand
well enough to explain their position, if asked.
I have nothing against measured, sensible growth and I'm
glad that Walton County seems poised to continue to grow
at a somewhat.more reasonable pace. Thankfully, it does ap-
pear that the most explosive part of the Walton County land
boom has finally peaked, but now developers and land specu-
lators are scambling to "get theirs" and squeeze every dollar
out of every deal they. can. As one developer friend told me
recently, "I knew it couldn't go on forever, but I can't help
but wish it had lasted another year or two."
Of course, Walton County is not the only place this is hap-
pening. On the federal level, several members of Congress
are trying desperately to get approval to drill for oil in Alaska
inside a national wildlife refuge and to circumvent the ban
on oil-drilling off the Florida coast.
President Bush has created the most anti-environmental
administration in decades and has repeatedly taken steps
to support Big Business and Big Oil at the expense of the
rest of the planet. Even Congressman Jeff Miller, whom I
haven't seen in Walton County in years, seems to be in favor
of these initiatives.
Poor Teddy Roosevelt must spinning in his grave.
But, hey, Teddy's not trying to get reelected next year, ei-
ther, and PACs, lobbyists and special interest groups can't
do it all they need your help.
I just hope you'll remember that when The Call Of The
Wild is Gone With The Wind.

Dear Editor,
There is seldom disagreement among individuals of vari-
ous faiths, or even nonbelievers, when discussing the need
for compassion in our world. It is this feeling of deep caring
and love that many Christians experience in their relation-
ship to God or Jesus Christ.
However, when the topic of compassion toward animals is
raised, harmony can quickly dissipate even among those
within the same church. Instead of quoting scriptures and
getting into arguments about the context or meaning, we
could simply ask ourselves, "What would Jesus do?"
If Jesus asked you how the dead animal on your table
once lived, what would you say? Would you tell him that the
animal never got the chance to scratch in the dirt or feel
sunlight on his feathers? Would you tell him how this lovely
creature had his beak and toes cut off without pain killers?
Would you tell him about the fear and pain that the animal
experienced at the slaughterhouse? Or would you simply
say that you don't know?
Christians are called upon to live to a higher moral stan-
dard. This duty requires constant evaluation of every
thought, word and deed. When it comes to your holiday
menu, make a choice for compassion and forgo the meat. Be
responsible and accountable. Do what Jesus would do.
Sincerely,
Nancy Hartwig

Editor,
Important pubic meeting, December 8, 2005 at 5 p.m. at
the Church of Christ Fellowship Hall on College Avenue.,
This is across the street from the old hospital property.
The College Avenue Complex Committee, made up of
county and city officials, and citizens, will hold their first
public meeting to discuss use of the old hospital property
and Warren Building.
One idea of much discussion in the community is the es-
tablishment of a senior community center. This would serve
the active senior population of central Walton County by
providing a place to gather for recreation and social activi-
ties.
This is an opportunity that should not be missed. The
time is right as the facility will become available for other
use as county employees are moved to the new courthouse.
I urge all seniors who are interested in a safe place to
fellowship, and an improved quality of life through social
activities, learning opportunities, health enhancement, and
a host of other potential life improvement opportunities to
attend the public meeting on December 8.

Dear Editor of the DeFuniak Herald,
December, as we all know, is a month of giving. Like many
years in the past, this year we were going to buy gifts and
give them to other classmates in our class. This year, plans
have been changed. Instead, we are buying gifts in a $5-$10
category, and giving them to Katrina victims.
We have had a visitor, Mr. Jeff McVay, who came and gave
us a slide-shoir' of pictures of the aftermath of Hurricane
Katrina. H~ mhade us aware of the lu:rricane-, and motivated
us to help and donate things we don't need. I'd like to thank
Mr. McVay for all he has done for us and others.

Dear Editor,
Jeff McVay came to our class on Thursday, December 1.
He has helped people in devastated areas where Hurricane
Katrina hit. Usually around Christmas break, the classes
in WDE have a class gift exchange. This year, classes are
going to bring gifts for the children in Hanckok, Mississippi.
I would like to recognize Mr. Jeff McVay and the people
he works with for helping the residents in Mississippi and
Louisiana.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 8, 2005


Dear Editor,

President Bush has a clear plan for victory in Iraq that
begins with training Iraqi forces so they can defend their
country and fight the terrorists. We are making tremen-
dous progress towards this objective.
Earlier this year, Iraqi forces led the fight in clearing out
terrorists during the crucial battle of Tal Afar, with U.S.
troops in a supporting role, and every day, Iraqis are taking
more control of the situation on the ground. Withdrawing
from Iraq, as some Democrats in Washington propose, would
send a dangerous signal to our enemies that we cut and run
when the going gets tough. President Bush is offering a clear
strategy to win, not a political quick fix.
President Bush is committed to keeping the nation strong
and secure through strengthening our military, deploying a
missile defense, strengthening the NATO alliance and sup-
porting military families and veterans. The president is com-
mitted to promoting an independent and democratic Iraq to
ensure further stability in the Middle East and the world
on the whole.
America's growing economy requires a flexible, highly
skilled workforce, and the president is committed to provid-
ing American workers with the training that they need to
succeed. President Bush has put forth an ambitious agenda
to ensure that America's economy remains the most pros-
perous in the world and believes we must ensure every adult
can access the training necessary to close the skills gap in
America. I would never quit in the middle of a fight and I do
not believe that we should give up on this because our he-
roes would have fought and died for no reason and we can
not allow this to happen. We must, without hesitation, sup-
port and praise our service men and women, as they willing
go and fight in strange places so that we can sleep in peace
and live in peace in this great country. What more can we
ask for?
I think that all politicians are full of BS, and they are
always ready to say'let's increase taxes and all will be well.'
Well, I think that this scenario is out of date and needs to be
replaced with some honesty for a change. I say that we fire
everyone from the people just under the president and vice-
president down to the mayors of small towns, because they
haven't been in politics long enough to be corrupt yet. I am
talking about the mayors here, of course, and start over with
honest and sincere people and put a limit on.how long they
can serve, four years, in then, if they were worth a damn,
they can run again after four years out of office,
This may not be the answer, but it couldn't be any worse
that the BS that we have in there at this time. Thanks for

Editor,
Recently, the U.S. House of Representatives barely passed
what is known as the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005. While
deficit reduction is no doubt a good thing, special interests
are using the bill as a vehicle to take public lands and gut
existing conservation programs. This effort, led by Repre-
sentative Richard Pombo tCA), who also wants to eviscer-
ate the Endangered Species Act, would allow the sale of our
public lands, which had previously been mined for very little
cost to the industry, to commercial developers. These are
the same lands that Teddy Roosevelt and others brought
into public ownership to protect the natural beauty of this
nation for future Americans. It would be the biggest land
scam in our history.
The bill also guts the Conservation Security Program
which helps farmers with renewable energy and efficiency
at a time when we need to be augmenting, these types of
programs. Protecting working farmlands is a good thing for
the economy and for the environment.
Lastly, the Senate version of the bill opens the-Arctic Na-
tional Wildlife refuge to oil drilling. Desecrating one of the
last pristine places on this continent will not make this na-
tion energy independent. We need to emphasize conserva-
tion and the use of renewable sources.
Contact Senator Bill Nelson and Senator Mel Martinez
and your US Representative and let them know we do not
want these misguided provisions put into law.

Charles Ellis, of Whitfield
Timber Company, has com-
pleted a three-day education
program designed to train
loggers in environmentally
sound, safe and efficient log-
ging practices. Completion of
this training earned Ellis the
industry designation of Mas-
ter Logger, a professional
logger with at least one suc-
cessful year of operating ex-
perience.
Ellis returns to the Walton
County area with improved
credentials to offer logging
and forestry services in this
growing segment of the local
and state economy. In 2003,
timber harvesting in Walton
County produced a $32.7 mil-
lion harvest. Approximately
428 employees work directly
in the county's forest indus-
try, which generates a $9.7
million payroll. Forest prod-
ucts and paper companies
within the state collectively
generate $16.6 billion in
manufactured products and
create over 133,000 jobs in
local communities. ,
Ellis traveled to Lake City,
where he participated in ses-
sions with 30 other loggers.
The classes covered techno-
logical innovations in the log-
ging industry, environmental
management, the changing
wood supply and demands

The Florida Highway Pa-
trol (FHP),has released en-
forcement totals for the lat-
est phase of Operation Safe
Ride, a crackdown on speed-
ers.
Operation Safe Ride is a
continuing program that tar-
gets specific problem areas in
traffic safety. The program
began in February of 2004 in
response to growing FHP
concern over road rage.
In addition to enforce-
ment, the program is in-
tended to heighten aware-
ness of specific problems as
highlighted in each phase.
The most recent program
was conducted statewide,
over the 48-hour period from
November 22 to 23.
The total number of cita-
tions issued in that period
was 7,283. Of that number,
3,909 were for speeding, by
far the most common offense
cited.
Next in frequency were oc-
cupant restraint violations,
for which 538 citations were
issued. Aggressive drivers
came in third place, with 372
citations.
Other violations cited were
failure to obey traffic control

The time of day when electricity is used can
make a big difference to Florida, and ultimately,
to you. By practicing "peak shifting" shifting
the time of day when you use such household
appliances as your washing machine, vacuum
or dishwasher-you can help reduce electric
demand during peak times of the day, thereby
reducing the overall cost of power in Florida.

A consumer's demand for electricity is
,influenced by the electricity-consuming
appliances in his or her home or business, ahd
the extent to which those appliances are used.
The "load" that a utility must supply, meanwhile,
is the total of all customers' electric demand.
Because customers use electricity in different
amounts at different times of the day, the load
changes over the course of the day, the week
and the year, as well as with changes in the
weather.

How Does a Utility Meet the Demand for
Electricity?
A utility may generate electricity, purchase
power from other utilities, or utilize a
combination of both. Unlike most products,
electricity cannot be stored after it is produced;
it must be generated at the time of demand.
Therefore, there are "peak" periods of the day
during which utilities must produce additional
electricity to meet the demands of their
customers. To meet this additional demand for
electricity, utilities often use "peaking'
generators." These peaking generators, which
burn oil or natural gas to produce electricity,
are brought on line only at peak periods of the
day, and run for short periods of time. While
peaking generators generally cost less to build
than other types of generators, they also have
relatively high fuel costs because they are
typically much less efficient in the use of fuel.

How Does All This Affect the Cost of
Electricity?
Your electric rates include the cost for the
generating units (if any) that a utility owns and
operates, the cost of fuel for those units, the
cost of power purchased from other utilities,
and the cost of any conservation or load
management programs offered by the utility.
Reducing the total amount of electricity you use
reduces your bill. In addition, reducing electric


use at peak times of the day, or peak shifting,
saves expensive fuel that would otherwise be
used in a peaking unit. That translates into
savings for all customers of that utility.

How Do I Practice Peak Shifting?
Use electric appliances such as washing
machines, clothes dryers, dishwashers and
vacuums during non-peak hours, when
possible.



Generally, the BESTtimes to use electric
appliances in Florida are as follows::

(. WINTER ) SUMMER


10 a.m. -6 p.m.
9 p.m. -6 a.m.


Midnight Noon
8 p.m. Midnight


Generally, the WORST times to use
electric appliances in Florida are as
follows:


WINTER

6 a.m. 10 a.m.
6 p.m. -9 p.m.


SUMMER

Noon 8 p.m.


Some utilities offer "load management"
programs to help reduce demand during peak
periods. Under such programs, a participating
customer agrees to allow the utility to control
the flow of electricity to certain larger electric
appliances, such as heat pumps or water
heaters, that are not needed by the customer
at peak times of the day.

Call your local electric utility for tips on using
energy wisely, and to find out about any load
management or conservation programs that
may be offered. Call the Florida Public Service
Commission at 1-800-342-3552 for more
information on energy conservation, or visit us
at www.floridapsc.com.


Braulio L. Baez is the Chairman of the Florida
Public Service Commission. The PSC sets the
rates regulated utility companies charge for
natural gas, electric and telephone service
within the state. In 36 counties, it sets the price
you pay for the water you drink, if your water
company is privately owned.

SCHOLASTIC SECURITY:


Walton Middle School


3y BRUCE COLLIER
Since the recent passage
if the Jessica Lunsford Act,
ilorida's schools have been
searching for ways to
heighten student security.
At Walton Middle School
WMS), many of the proce-
lures and safeguards man-
lated by the new law were
Already in place.

WMS principal Russell
lughes and school adminis-
rator Verna Barley dis-
:ussed the various ways by
vhich WMS uses low and
uigh-technology to protect
ts students.


At the most basic level is
the level one background
check. Barley performs this
for all persons spending
time on campus, but who
will not be left unsupervised
with students.
Barley runs a name check
on the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement's data-
base, to screen out sexual
offenders and predators.
Persons who will have full
access to students, or to
school funds, or to theWMS
campus, are given a level
two screening.'
This screening, performed
by the school district,

involves fingerprinting, and
a nationwide law enforce-
ment database background
check.
Hughes said that this was
being done at WMS prior to
the passage of the Jessica
Lunsford Act, signed into
law in spring of 2005.
Things can get a little bur-
densome, said Hughes, par-
ticularly when dealing with
volunteer coaches, game
referees, and umpires.
"Some of them are retired
military," he said,"with secu-
rity clearances."

Even so, every effort is
made to screen out potential
threats, right down to ven-
dors filling concession
machines on campus.
The Internet is another
area of potential danger.
Like most schools, WMS has
computers with Internet
access. A school district
computer administrator
keeps a constant watch on
websites accessed on cam-
pus computers, as well as
those on national lists, and
blocks student access to off-
limits sites.
Video cameras, placed all
over the campus, enable
administrators and security
personnel to watch every
corner of the school
grounds.
"We have some 14 to 16
video cameras," said
Hughes.
In addition to databases,
Internet blocking systems,
and surveillance cameras,
there is the human factor.


keeps a
In effect, every teacher,
administrator, and school
employee acts as an inde-
pendent set of eyes and ears
on campus.
Administrators are
assigned to designated
areas of the campus. Each
has a duty station. Teachers
stand and watch during
class changes, breaks, and
daily arrivals and depar-
tures of buses and cars.

Sof physicians practice medicine
'ho within the hospital setting
;al- and coordinate patient care
ist with family physicians.
Hospitalist do not conduct
private practices. These phy-
sicians are hospital based,
therefore they limit their care
of patients to those who are
referred to the hospital for
admission.
The Hospitalist Program
provides a team of physicians
trained in internal medicine
and other specialties. These
physicians work together
with the emergency depart-
ment, ancillary service de-
partments and patients' phy-
sicians to coordinate admis-
sion to the hospital and the
care patients receive while
they are a patient in'the hos-
pital. A Hospitalist physician
will visit patients each day
and can answer questions re-
garding patient conditions.
0 "Although patients may re-
ceive care from more than one
Hospitalist physician, the
team works together with a
family physician to offer the
highest quality of care and
condition while hospitalized.
Hospitalist physicians are
available 24 hours a day,
seven days a week," said
0 Gerald C. Beard, COO at
Healthmark.


"There will be three
Hospitalist physicians on
staff at Healthmark. Family
physicians may choose which
physician will participate in
the program and this deter-
mines how the program will
be utilized. If utilized by your
personal physician, the
Hospitalist team will keep
your family physician in-
formed of your condition and
consult with your physician
concerning your treatment".
Beard continued by saying,
"Healthmark Regional Medi-
cal Center proudly offers this
new service which expedites
admission, ensures continu-
ity of care, and creates a cen-
tralized communication sys-
tem thus increasing the over-
all quality of care for patients.
Healthmark is always look-
ing for ways to enhance and
improve patient care and the
Hospitalist Program is an-
other way to do so. Not only
does it improve you in-hospi-
tal care but it also allows pri-
mary care physicians the op-
portunity to serve patients
better at his or her office.":

SCAM
From Pg. 4B

for seniors need to know how
to identify the legitimate ap-
proved Medicare Prescrip-
tion Drug providers from the
"pretenders." The BBB offers
the following tips when
evaluating the various plans
being marketed:
Carefully review the 'Medi-
care & You' 2006 handbook
that has been provided to
every senior citizen. The
booklet explains in detail
what prescription drug cov-
erage means and which plans
are available in this area.
Legitimate providers are
not allowed to market the
drug plans door-to-door or via
unsolicited e-mails.
Legitimate providers are
permitted to contact consum-
ers, but they must observe
federal and state do-not-call
laws and registries. Also,
they should be willing to send
information about the plan in
the mail, and to wait to ob-
tain any necessary personal
and financial information.
If someone calls to offer a
Medicare prescription drug
plan and asks for personal
and financial information,
obtain their name, the name
of their company or agency,
and their phone number. Ask
them to send information
about their plan in the mail.
Do not provide bank account
numbers, Social Security
numbers or any other per-
sonal information over the
telephone.
Verify the legitimacy of any
provider that calls by call-
ing the Medicare toll-free
phone number, 1-800-633-
4227 24 hours a day.
Additional information
about the new Medicare pre-
scription drug coverage, how
to assess personal needs and
review plan options, and how
to choose and enroll in a plan
is available at www.
medicare.gov.
If you suspect a scam, no-
tify the BBB at 1-2800-729-
9226 or contact the Health
and Human Services Office of
the Inspector General at 1-
800-447-8477.

a great ascription of raise


By DR. 'ROBERT M. JAYE

In our study of the Lord's
Prayer in Matthew 6:9-13, we
last considered that the Lord
lead us around temptation. In
so doing, we meant also that
we would, by that means, be
delivered from any evil to
which we might, without His


leading, become a victim.
The last sentence of the
grand Model Prayer is
doubted by many to be in the
"best manuscripts," what
ever that may mean to the
writers of that-idea. Yet is is
exactly what we would expect
to be ascribed to our Lord
Jesus Christ, when speaking


of His Glorious Father.
"Thine is the kingdom, and
the power, and the glory, for
ever. Amen" (Matthew 6:13).
We declare in these words
our belief that the kingdoms
of this world are the rightful
property of our Father. We
declare that to Him belongs
all power. We are saying that
to Him belongs all glory. We
conclude by offering to Him
the confession of our hearts,
that we give Him all honor
and praise, and we rejoice
that He is King of Kings, and
Lord of lords.
*Let us examine ourselves.
Let us see if we really desire
to have all the things which
we are taught to ask for in the
Lord's Pray6r. Thousands, it
may be, have repeated these
words in a daily form, but
never considered what is be-
ing said. Many may care
nothing for the "glory," the
"kingdom,", or the "will" of
God. They have no sense of
dependence, sinfulness,
weakness, or danger.
They have no love or char-
ity towards toward their en-

emies. And yet they repeat us resolved that, by God's say and mean a heartfelt
the Lord's Prayer! These help, our hearts shall go to- "Amen" to all that the Lord's
things ought not to be so. Let gether with our lips. Let us Prayer contains.

In Memory of
Flossie Knight
1932-2000


The loss of a mother can bring so much pain.
\ And it hurts so deep inside that from the world
we want to refrain.
The loss leaves us feeling abandoned and very
lonely too.
We think without our mother we can never make
it through.
We hold on to precious memories that linger from
the past,
And in prayer we question God, but God the
q.uetI n c,' a iiannout laik.
For our God is all wise and He never makes
mistakes.
He's the awesome creator of life and life He can
freely take. \e pray that we'll be encouraged.
and know that our loss is ;God's gain.
For surely God will comfort us in sorrow, and in
time release the pain.
We always know that our mother loves us and
God loves us just the same, and thank God for
our own dear lives and we'll rejoice until we meet
again.

Your lo:.ing children
Mama, we miss \you,
Susie, Bill and Jackie

Beamer wins ACC Coach of the

Year, but falls again to Bowden


By CHUCK HINSON
Even before the No. 5-
ranked Hokies were shaken
apart by unranked Florida
State in the first ACC con-
ference championship, Vir-
ginia Tech head football
coach Frank Beamer had al-
ready beaming. Last Tues-
day it was announced that he
had been named for the sec-
ond year-in-a-row, ACC
Coach of the Year.
The repeat winner easily
outscored the next coach in
line for the honor, Georgia
Tech's Chan Gailey, despite
his impressive season this
year with the Yellow Jackets.


Beamer received 42 votes,
while Gailey ended up with
only 12. Miami's Larry Coker
had seven, Clemson's
Tommy Bowden with six and
Boston College's Tom
O'Brein with five votes.
Virginia Tech's impressive
year only had two blimishes
when Miami beat them on
Nov. 5, and then when Flor-
ida State beat the Hokies this
past Saturday evening for
the ACC Conference title.
The Seminoles went into
this past weekend's game as
the two-touchdown under-
dog. But it was all about the
defense as they pounded Vir-


ginia Tech quarterback
Marcus Vick and ate up the
offense.

On the flipside, Florida
State came alive in the first
few seconds of the second
half and never looked back.
Final score, 27-22.
It was the 15th straight
loss for Virginia Tech against
Florida State and the Hokies
only two losses were both by
Florida teams in 2005.
The voting for ACC Coach
of the Year is conducted and
voted on by the Atlantic
Coast Sports Media Associa-
tion.

Notes
by PATRICK CASEY
Port St. Joe became the
only football team from the
Panhandle-Big Bend region
to capture a state champion-
ship in football in 2005 as the
Sharks beat the Fort Meade
Miners 38-31 for the Class A
state championship. The
Sharks finished 13-1 on the
year as they won their first
state championship since
1984 and third overall in the
history of their program.
Graceville (9-5) lost to
Lakeland Evangel Christian
in the first Class B state
championship game 49-22.
Both teams turned the ball
over four times in a very slop-
pily played game. Lakeland
scored 26 points off of the Ti-
gers mistakes, however, as
they captured their first state
championship.
Niceville played one of the
best football games in the
school's history, but got
sacked on the final play of the
game as Lakeland edged the
Eagles 28-21. Niceville was
at the Lakeland 4-yard line
with 14 seconds left in the
game, but quarterback John
Paul Fraites was sacked by
Troy Johnson and the clock
ran out before the Eagles,
who were out of time-outs,
could get off another play.
Lakeland has won 29 straight
games and is the #1 team in
the country in the USA Today
national poll.
O'Darien Bassett hit a

Flooding, roads


a concern for


Driftwood


Estates


By DOTTY NIST
Located north of
Sandestin Resort, Driftwood
Estates was originally part of
the Sandestin development
of regional impact (DRI),
which was approved in the
1970s.
The exterior portion of
Driftwood Estates, which
borders the Choctawhatchee
Bay, was developed prior to
2003.
After the new owner and
developer of the interior por-
tion, Olson Associates, and
homebuilder Adams Homes
began work on the interior
subdivision lots, known as
Phase II, existing residents
had raised drainage issues.
Two residents stated to the
BCC that stormwater was
not draining from the subdi-
vision at all.
In May, the BCC sus-
pended issuance of building
permits in the Phase II con-
struction until stormwater
management had been ad-
dressed to prevent fb'oding.
In August, the moratorium
on building permits was
lifted following an agreement
between Walton Cbunty,
Olson Associates and Adams
Homes in which the devel-
oper and builder would con-
tribute $60,000 each for
drainage and road iiprove-
ment, with open ditch drain-
age to be eliminated.
On Nov. 22 Driftwood Es-
tates homeowner Alan
Osborne, representing
around two dozen subdivi-
sion residents, again ad-
dressed the BCC with con-
cerns that "possibly just one"
of the six drainage outfalls to
the bay in the subdivision
stormwater management


plan was working properly.
He also questioned whether
the outfalls had been permit-
ted by the state. He added
that some of the drainage
pipes were not installed
properly.
"We don't deserve the
right to be flooded," Osborne
stated.
He also told the commis-
sioners the roadway was get-
ting "torn to pieces" due to
flooding.
An additional concern for
Osborne was that an access
road shown in the original
DRI is not available for Drift-
wood Estates homeowners
because Sandestin has since
closed the road.
"You don't pick and choose
your rules...we deserve to
have the DRI followed," he
said.
He called for development
to stop pending resolution of
the outfall and access issues.
After hearing from Drift-
wood Estates residents con-
cerned about flooding and
limited road access to and
from their subdivision, the
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) has set a special meet-
ing to address those issues.
The meeting is set for 1:30
p.m. on Dec. 13 at the South
Walton Courthouse Annex.
The commissioners voted
to require the developer to
produce the state permits for
the outfalls within five busi-
ness days, without which
construction was to be
halted. They also made a de-
cision to ask a Sandestin rep-
resentative to bring docu-
mentation regarding the
closing of the access road to
the Dec. 13 meeting.


SBCC sets rules for


filling flood zone


By DOTTY NIST
"There's lots of confusion
about this issue," said Wal-
ton County Planning Direc-
tor Pat Blackshear."
.The item was advertised,
in part, as an amendment to
"make the Comprehensive
Plan consistent with Florida
Statutes and Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency
regulations as they relate to
flood damage prevention."
At the Nov. 28 Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) spe-
cial meeting where the pro-
posed change was addressed,
Blackshear insisted that the
amendment did not deal with
density issues but addressed
bringing construction in A-
flood zones in line with
FEMA guidelines.
"It's all about construction
standards," she said.
However, the majority of
the public and commission
discussion on the item, plus
the BCC vote, dealt with al-
lowable density in the A-zone
floodplain.
Property in the A-flood
zone is subject to rising wa-
ters and is usually located
near a lake, river, stream or
other body of water.
Blackshear estimated that
there may be 6,220 acres of
A-zone property in Walton
County.
Mary Konovsky of the
South Walton Community
Council charged that the
amendment "fails to protect
the floodplain from degrada-
tion."
With the amendment as
proposed, she continued, de-
velopers would get the same
density whether they filled
the floodplain or not. She
suggested giving a higher
density to developers who did
not fill.
"This removes the only
thing in the comp plan that
protects floodplains," said
Alan Ficarra.
He suggested placing a
density cap, perhaps two
units per acre, on floodplain
property and possibly also
saying that developers who
fill the floodplain cannot in-
crease density.
Bob Dobes called the pro-
posal a "Tarzan swing" to in-
creasing density in the flood-

'Come See the



Child' in SRB


By ROBIN NEWTON
Good News United Meth-
odist Church in Santa Rosa
Beach will be presenting a
living Nativity and musical
event on December 9 and 10
at 6 p.m. The program, en-
titled "Come See the Child",
will enable visitors to walk
among the common folk on
the night of Jesus' birth,
meet Roman soldiers, eaves-
drop on the shepherds and
pet their animals, stroll
through the marketplace and
experience the Christmas
story.
This multifaceted encoun-
ter will be free to the public.
Just as travelers over 2000
years ago journeyed back to
Bethlehem to be counted in
the census in accordance
with Roman law, visitors of
all ages will be guided to the
gates of Bethlehem, where

they will meet the census
takers. After telling their
family name and receiving a
coin in return and a bag for
their bounty, they will then
be led to the shepheards.
Visitors can pet the animals
and chat with the shepherds
before they continue on their
journey to the well (washing
station) and then along the
path to the marketplace.
The marketplace is host to
a myriad of hands-on activi-
ties for visitors both young
and old. Crosses made of
nails can be constructed at
the blacksmith shop, they
can make metal relief
projects at the metalworking
shop, enjoy pottery painting
at the pottery shop, beading

ate potpourri at the herb

plain.
Blackshear said the prob-
lem is.that current county
policy with the A-zone is so
restrictive that developers
end up getting flood map
amendments and completely
filling their property to get
out of the A-zone. She said
she considers that a much
more destructive impact
than loosening restrictions
on building in the A-zone.
She argued that the pro-
posed change would not en-
courage higher density. In
fact, higher density is result-
ing from the current policy,
she explained.
"This change does not af-
fect the wetland policy in the
(comprehensive) plan," she
said.
Blackshear said some
people had suggested that no
more than four units per acre
be allowed in the flood zone.
She agreed that that would
be a good compromise.
"I've seen what the filling
of these lands can do," said
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows.
Meadows said people who
have been in the 'area 20
yeadf of more tell her that
they have never seen flood-
ing such as is taking place
now.
She suggested disallow-
ing the filling of floodplain
and only allowing density to
be transferred to another
part of the property up to a
certain cap.
David Kramer advocated
the amendment as proposed
as a common sense approach:
"I think this is just the first
baby step," he said.
District 1 Commissioner
Scott Brannon suggested a
compromise to provide an
incentive for not filling: two
units per acre density if the
property is filled, four units
per acre if it is not filled.
District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones moved for ap-
proval of the amendment as
proposed with a 50 percent
reduction from underlying
density on property that is
filled.
His motion was approved
in a three to one vote, with
Meadows dissenting and Dis-
trict 4 Commissioner Ro
Cuchens not present.


BCC votes to transmit amendment package


By DOTTY NIST
Land use amendments af-
Sfecting over 8,000 acres in
Walton County received
county commission approval
on Nov. 28, along with text
amendments to the Walton
County Comprehensive Plan
responding to objections, rec-
ommendations and com-
ments (ORC) reports previ-
ously sent to the county by
the state.

The ORC reports were a
response by the state Depart-
ment of Community Affairs
(DCA) to previous land use
amendments proposed by the
county.
County Planniiig Director
Pat Blackshear said that the
planning department had
worked closely with state,


agencies to develop a re-
sponse to the ORC reports.
The seven comprehensive
plan text amendments
brought forward on Nov. 28
were proposed in support of
the accompanying land use
amendments.

The first text amendment
created a new land use cat-
egory, the North Bay Neigh-
borhood Planning Area. The
second was to allow borrow
pits as a special exception
within in the large scale and
general agricul' land use.
These were approved unani-
mously among the four com-
missioners in attendance.
District 4 Commissioner Ro
Cuchens was not present for
the meeting.
The third amendment was


to make the comp plan con-
sistent with Florida Statutes
and Federal Emergency
Management Agency regula-
tions regarding flood damage
prevention, adopt the 1999
Northwest Florida Hurri-
cane Evacuation Study as
the basis for hurricane
evacuation .standards, and
adopt new hurricane clear-
ance standards.

The first part of the pro-
posal was approved three to
one, with the addition that
developers who fill flood-
plains get a 50 percent den-
sity reduction from the un-
derlying density.
The hurricane evacuation
standard portion was ap-
proved unanimously.
The fourth amendment


provided for an exception to
traffic concurrency require-
ments for affordable housing
projects. This was approved
3-0,,with Jones temporarily
absent.
The fifth amendment, to
adopt new level of service
standards for transportation
facilities and add a transpor-
tation improvements sched-
ule and projects map, was
'also approved with a stipu-
lation added by District 5
Commissioner Cindy Mead-
ows to move the timetable of
a number of transportation
improvements forward.
The sixth amendment was
to increase the buffer re-
quirement for historic and
archaeologic sites from 25 to
50 feet in accordance with
Florida Statutes. The sev-


enth was to adopt right of
way dedication standards for
future transportation corri-
dors. Both of these amend-
ments were approved with no
opposition.
Individual land use
amendments, some applying
to parcels of over 2,000 acres,
some applying to less than an
acre, were considered for the
next several hours, with only
three proposed amendments
being denied.

A land use change from
neighborhood planning area
to coastal center was denied
for Holiday Travel Park in
Miramar Beach. A change
from general agricultural to
rural residential was also
denied for an 182-acre par-
cel on Cosson Road. Denied,


in addition, was a change
from conservation residen-
tial to neighborhood plan-
ning area on the 1.39-acre
McHenry parcel.

Blackshear said the
amendment package and
ORC response would be sub-
mitted to DCA within ten
days. DCA and other state
agencies will then have 45
days to decide whether to
accept them or to object or
comment. If approved by the
state, the proposed amend-
ments and response will be
subject to a 21-day period
during which the public is
allowed to challenge them. In
the absence of objections or
challenges, they would be-
come final at the end of that
time period.

NEW TRUCKS now in service for the South Walton Fire
District.


S.W. Fire


District gets


fourth ladder truck


By DOTTYNIST

The South Walton Fire Dis-
trict now has a new pumper
truck and a new ladder truck.
SWFD Chief Les Hallman
said the pumper truck will be
located at the district head-
quarters station on CR-393
and the 75-foot ladder truck
will be placed at the
WaterColor station on CR-
395.
The district's 105-foot lad-
der truck, is housed at the
Mack Bayou Road station.
This gives the district a taller.
ladder truck near either end
of the county, Hallman said.
He added that the district's
two 50-foot ladder trucks are
located at the Inlet Beach
station and the Miramar
Beach station.
Hallman said the most use-
ful feature of ladder trucks is
allowing for an_.el.vated
stream of water to fight fires
inntwo to four-story residen-.
tial structures such as those
at new developments like
WaterColor and in large of-
fice buildings. "

the east end of the county,
and for a number of years
new construction has been
limited to four stories south
of the bay.
Taller buildings are more


numerous on the west end of
the district. Some were built
before Walton County limited
heights, and some recently-
constructed highrises had
been vested as part of devel-
opments of regional impacts
(DRIs).
Fortunately, according to
Hallman, construction stan-
dards for highrises require
the installation of built-in
firefighting devices such
sprinklers and other safety
features that enable occu-
pants to vacate these build-
ings with minimal assis-
tance.
The new ladder truck cost
the fire district $480,000, and
the engine was purchased for
$260,000, The combined ex-
penditure was about $10,000
less than the district had
budgeted.
The South Walton Fire Dis-
trict is seeking a fire commis-
sioner to replace Ed
S.Lautzenh6isr,: who recently.
resigned his seat to move to
Tennessee. There are three
years left on Lautzenheiser's
term. The vacated seat is for
a resident of Precinct 18.

The fire district will be pro-
viding additional informa-
tion on the vacancy through
the media within the next
few weeks.

to the alleged actions of the
Walton County Code En-
forcement Office, pursuant to
the Walton County Compre-
hensive Plan and Land De-
velopment Code (LDC},
adopted in 1997.
Both plaintiffs were cited
by code enforcement officials
for alleged "non-conforming
uses" of their property, in-
cluding certain signage and
outdoor retail sales, held to
be in violation of the LDC.
Both businesses claim that
they have been operating
continuously since before the
adoption of the LDC, and
that theirs is a pre-existing
"legal, non-conforming use,"
acceptable within the mean-
ing of the LDC.
Both also claim that they
were not allowed to offer evi-
dence of this at a hearing on
their alleged violations.
Plaintiffs further claim se-
lective discrimination in en-
forcement, alleging that the
county has allowed "other
property owners of similarly
situated properties" to dis-
play non-conforming signs
and conduct outdoor retail
sales.
The Civil Rights Act viola-
tion stems from the alleged
denials of equal protection
and substantive due process
by a "state agency," that is,
Walton County.
In order to maintain such
a claim, the agency's acts
must have been "arbitrary
and capricious," committed
"under color of state law," and
without a "rational basis."


The Bert J. Harris Jr. Pri-
vate Property Rights Protec-
tion Act, a state statute, al-
lows lawsuits to protect
Florida. property owners
from government actions
that inordinately burden and
unfairly affect their property.
The lawsuit seeks perma-
nent injunctive relief, per-
mitting the plaintiffs to
maintain their signage and
businesses as is, or, alterna-
tively, compensatory dam-
ages. The suit-also asks for
attorney fees.
The plaintiffs are repre-
sented by attorneys Lisa
Minshew and Shari Thieman
Greene of Pensacola.
The defendant is repre-
sented by attorneys Barry Ri-
chard, and Laureen Galeoto,
of Greenberg Traurig of Tal-
lahassee.
The defendant has filed an
answer, denying plaintiffs'
interpretation of the facts
and law. and denying that
plaintiffs have quoted cor-
rectly the applicable code
provisions.
Greene said that the ac-
tion is still in the discovery
phase, with both parties re-
questing and exchanging in-
formation and evidence as
required by the rules of court.
Discovery must be completed
by April 2006.
At press time, attorneys for
the defendant had not been
reached for comment.
Trial has been set for Oc-
tober 2006. Mediation is also
being considered as an alter-
native to trial.

Walton County Snowbird News


By Nancy Gehrke
Information officer of the
Walton County Snowbirds

The December general
meeting will be at 10 a.m.
Wednesday, Dec. 14 at the
Village Baptist Church Fel-
lowship Hall, Building 6 in
the center of their campus,
101 Matthew Blvd. Changes
were necessary due to a very
busy schedule at the Faith
Assembly Christian Church
for the holidays. The Village
Baptist Church has been
home to many of Dr. David
Ott's concerts, Dr. Ott being
the presenter for the day, so
we welcome the opportunity
to be in a familiar facility
which embraces the arts,
and, in the heat of need, the
Walton County Snowbirds.

Calling all Canadians we
have good news and bad
news to share. Let's begin
with the good. A Canadian
federal election will be held
on Jan. 23, 2006. Canadians
can vote by mail upon com-
pleting an application for reg-
istration and sending it with
photocopies of proof of iden-
tity and residence to Elec-
tions Canada. Once verified,
you will receive a special bal-
lot which can be sent to Elec-
tipns Canada and received by
Jan. 23. This is a do-it-now
request so that your vote will
count. Applications can be ob-
tained at www. elections, ca.
or by calling 1-800-463-6868.
Though this isn't really bad
news, it requires the Cana-
dians to be prepared when
coming to register at the
Walton County Snowbirds.
Canadian checks do not work
in the system, no matter
which bank you use unless
you open a local account and

lars to pay for the registra-
tion ($6 per person) and golf-
ing fees. Sorry for the incon-
venience.

With just three
weeks until the big
day,Christmas spirit
is in the air.. Com-

shop. The weaver will provide
materials to make placemats
and anyone can learn the dif-
ferent dances as they watch
and participate in the Jewish
dancing. The synagogue
school will have a rabbi and
a replica of the Torah. The lit-
urgy of the church at the time
of the birth of Christ will be
explained to onlookers. Chil-
dre: can play the Dreidel
game and other games of the
time. Roman soldiers will be
on guard throughout the mar-
ketplace and servers will
wander throughout, offering
freshly baked bread and dried
fruit to everyone.
After leaving the market-
place, the next stop is the
Bethlehem Cafe where guests
will be offered coffee and
spiced tea,. and allowed to
make and sample fresh
bread.
As visitors make their way
to the inn, a chat with the inn-
keeper and his wife will verify
that there are no vacancies.
Mary and Joseph 'will be in
the stable, awaiting the birth
of their child. After everyone
is seated, they will listen to
narrator Mary Brown and
experience the Christmas
story.
This production, which re-
quires the diligence of nearly
100 volunteers, is the master-
piece of Michelle Corley, the
director of Music Ministries
at. Good News UM
Church. Its conception began
over 15 years ago when
Michelle witnessed a live
Nativity. The idea of a pag-
eant, where visitors could ex-
perience the streets of
Bethlehem, was a tiny seed
that grew over the years.
Upon accepting her position
at Good News, she knew her
dream would become a real-
ity. She is quick to point out
that whenever something
was needed, whether it was a
skill or a service, the need was
filled. As she puts it, "It's a
God thing."
Don Wagner was one of
those volunteers who filled a
need. Don is well known for
the rocking horses he makes
and gives away to children's
hospitals and places that
house families of children
who are hospitalized. He en-
thusiastically offered his


services. Michelle wanted a
manger, but not just any
manger. Don scoured the
Internet until he found a pic-
ture of one, suitable for the
times. Knowing the correct
materials would create the
perfect look, he-procured old
wood for the job. His calcula-
tions were so precise, he had
just a few pieces of ends left,
which he used to build the
fence that would surround
Bethlehem. Onlookers will
enjoy trying to translate the
Hebrew graffiti 'Don has
painted on these fences.

Don is also responsible for
creating the moving sets,
complete with fiber optic
lighting, that will awe the
audience during the presen-
tation of the Christmas story.
No play or pageant is com-
plete without costumes.
Diane Cuchens and Rita
Gwin began several months
ago and the product of their
labors is evident in the
beauty of their efforts.
Janet Nabors, Children's
Minister at Good News, will
be teaching the Dreidel game
and other children's games of
the era. Kay Chandeysson,
Rita Gwin, Rebecca and
Diane Cuchens will demon-
strate and teach the Jewish
dancing.
Michelle's husband, Pat, the
sound technician, and Lynn
Richer, assistant drama
coach, the lighting director
will ensure the professional
technical details for the per-
formance.
Overflow parking will be
at the Lutheran Church just
west of Good News UM
Church. A shuttle bus will be
available to take visitors to
and from their vehicles. The,
Good News youth will be
parking cars and acting as
hosts during the pageant.
The church is located at
4747 Hwy 98 West, Santa
Rosa Beach, Florida. In case
of inclement weather, the per-
formances will be held the
following weekend. For more
information, please call 622-
2090.
This will be an experience
like no other. Tell your
friends, tell your family, but,
please don't miss the chance
to "Come See the Child."
