Lack of standing ruled


OWC wins Coastkeepers



case on Kelly property


The Okaloosa-Walton Col-
lege Foundation has pre-
vailed in another legal chal-
lenge by a Pensacola-based
environmental group that
sought to stop the pending
sale of a portion of the Mattie
Kelly estate property in
Destin. First Judicial Circuit
Judge Patricia Grinsted
ruled Dec. 27 in favor of the
OWC Foundation on all
points in the case. Grinsted
cited the "lack of standing" of
the Pensacola Gulf Coast-
keepers, Inc. to bring the ac-
tion and ruled that the OWC
Foundation "did not act im-
properly" in regards to the
state's administrative proce-
dures act as alleged by the
Coastkeepers. Grinsted also
ruled that the Foundation
did not violate the state's
Sunshine Law when it voted
May 5, to authorize the sale,
stating the foundation "took
independent final action in
* the sunshine to sell the
Mattie Kelly property."
"We are pleased that in
each and every court chal-
lenge, the college's plans for
expansion of the OWC


Mattie Kelly Cultural and
Environmental Institute
have prevailed. We hope the
final legal challenges will
soon be settled so that we can
move forward with the cul-
tural and environmental
work highlighted in Mrs.
Kelly's gift to the college,"
said Dr. Bob Richburg, OWC
president.
In June, Circuit Court
Judge Robert Barron also
ruled in favor of the OWC
Foundation that the pro-
posed sale was neither a vio-
lation of the'last will and tes-
tament of Mattie Kelly nor a
violation of the deed from the
Kelly Estate that transferred
the property to the college's
foundation. Judge Barron
had also ruled in an earlier
separate case that the
CoastKeepers lacked legal
standing to pursue a case
against the OWC Founda-
tion in the Kelly matter.

In August, 2005, the OWC
District Board of Trustees
also won a separate case in
which the'Coastkeepers had
sought a state administra-


tive hearing on the Kelly
matter.
The college previously an-
nounced that the proceeds
from the sale of approxi-
mately 12 acres of the Destin
property, excluding the mau-
soleum portion of the estate,
will go to the permanent en-
dowment fund for the OWC
Mattie.Kelly Cultural and
Environmental Institute
through the OWC Founda-
tion. The OWC Foundation
will continue to owni and
maintain the grounds sur-
rounding Mattie Kelly's
mausoleum in perpetuity.
The OWC Foundation is
awaiting an appeal by Carol.
Kelly of the original circuit
court ruling that granted the
Foundation the right to sell
a portion of the estate prop-
erty.

The earnings from the
OWC Mattie Kelly Cultural
and Environmental Institute
Endowment will underwrite
the cultural and environ-
mental work highlighted in
Mrs. Kelly's gift to the college
including naming the entire


OWC Arts Center complex in
honor of Mrs. Kelly -the
"Mattie Kelly Fine and Per-
forming Arts Center" to
memorialize her love. of the
arts and to provide a place for
literary societies, fine arts
groups and small performing
groups as well as conferences
and seminars offered
through OWC.

The college will also pro-
vide support through the
Kelly Institute for biological
and marine science studies
associated with the Chocta-
whatchee Bay and the Gulf
of Mexico, including support
for the OWC Chocta-
whatchee Basin Alliance's
environmental work to moni-
tor and improve the quality
of the bay, an annual Mattie
Kelly Environmental Sympo-
sium on the Choctawhatchee
Bay, and a Mattie Kelly En-
dowed Faculty Chair in the
Environmental Sciences to
focus research on the
Choctaw Bay; as 'well as
other endeavors in support of
the arts and the environ-
.ment.

murder suspect


arrested in DFS


By BRUCE COLLIER
A joint effort by the Wal-
ton County Sheriff and the

United States Marshal's Of-
fice resulted in the arrest of
a fugitive wanted for murder
in Arkansas, and of three
other persons on narcotics
charges.
Brian Lee Bell, 22, is
wanted by the Sheriff of
Jefferson County, Arkansas,
on a charges of capital,mur-
der, and possession of a fire-
arm by a convicted felon.
The U.S. Marshal also had
a warrant on Bell for unlaw-
ful flight to avoid prosecu-
tion.
Bell reportedly had been
residing in a trailer at 108
Smith Road in DeFuniak
Springs.
He was arrested and taken
into custody by the Walton
County Sheriff and the U.S.
Marshal's North Florida vio-
lent fugitive task force.
The arrest took place dur-
ing a felony traffic stop at the
intersection of 19th Street
and Bob Sikes Road, on De-
cember 30.
In the course of the arrest,
officers found a loaded .40
caliber handgun and a .40
caliber magazine that Bell
allegedly threw from the ve-
hicle.


Bell was also found to be
in possession of six grams of
crack cocaine anda small
amount of marijuana.
Arrested with Bell was the
driver, Marekiya Chavon
Hogans, 24, also of 108 Smith
Road.
Hogans consented to a.
search of her address, which
yielded a .25 caliber hand-
gun, approximately 30 grams
of marijuana, and parapher-
nalia. Hogans was charged;
with being an accessory af-
ter the fact for harboring
Bell.
The Smith Road search
also led to the issuance of a
search warrant of another
alleged narcotics location in:
south Walton County.
That search led-to the ar-
rest of Christopher D. Clark,
26, Jwaine D. Smith, 27, and
Latoya D. Moorer, 31, all on
charges of trafficking in
MDMD (Ecstasy).

In addition to the Arkan-
sas murder charge, Bell is re-
portedly a suspect in the
murder of a witness in con-
nection with that murder
charge.
Bell is being held without
bond in Walton County Jail,
pending extradition to Ar-
kansas.

Jennifer Fisher wins 2005 National Reining Horse


Association Limited Open World Championship


The National Reining
Horse Association was
founded in 1966. It serves as
the standard setting body for
the sport of Reining and is
dedicated to promoting the
reining horse. Reining is a
judged event designed to
show the athletic ability of a
ranch horse within the con-
fines of a show arena.
In NRHA competition,
contestants are required to
run one often approved pat-
terns listed in the NRHA
Handbook. The horse and
rider are then judged on tech-


nical and stylistic elements
coupled with the "degree of
difficulty". I n
the last few years NRHA has
prospered as one of the most
popular equine sport associa-
tions in the world. Reining
gained further acceptance as
the first Western Discipline
of the United States Eques-
trian Team (USET). There
are 14 levels of competition,
with Limited Open being one
of the three most difficult lev-
els.
The title, National Rein-
ing Horse Association Lim-


ited Open World Champion-
ship, is truly considered to be
a "world" title because riders
from Europe and Asia, pri-
marily Japan, compete with
riders from all over the
United States to earn this
coveted ranking. The word
"open" denotes that riders
competing for this title may
be professional or non pro,
making this event a more dif-
ficult title to win.
When the 2005 show sea-
son started out Jennifer
Fisher had planned to ride
her new horse "Dun It Last


JENNIFER FISHER and American Quarter Horse Stallion "Chico".


Night" and ride "Chic N Out"
as a. secondary horse. Dur-
ing the first two months of
the year "Chic N Out" was
consistently placing in the
top three every time out.
"Chick N Out" is a registered
American Quarter Horse
Stallion Fisher affectionately
calls "Chico". Ron Fisher,
Jennifer's husband, showed
"Chico" in 2002 and,2003
placing in the top 10 world-
wide Non Pro ranking. But
until now Jennifer Fisher
had never personally cam-
paigned the horse.
Charlie Smith, Jennifer
Fisher's trainer, wanted her
to go on the road and see if
this new team might really
have what it takes to win a
title. This was a new adven-
ture for Jennifer. Although
she had. shown horses for
years she had never hauled
by herself any long distances.
She was familiar with going
to Ocala and even Perry,
Georgia but going all the way
up to Kentucky was a first.
The venture was successful
and she and "Chico" returned
with more first and second
Place ribbons.
The year proceeded with
Jennifer Fisher and "Chico"
consistently placing in all but
a few shows through August
2005. Their wins were ac-
companied by cash prizes
which had added up to put
her in the lead for the NRHA
Limited Open World Cham-
pionship. She and "Chico"
traveled to shows in Georgia,
Ohio, New York, Oklahoma,
North Carolina, Florida and
more. Many show horses tire
out after being ridden at so
many shows but not."Chico".


JENNIFER FISHER at Windy Hill Ranch in DeFuniak
Springs.


Towards the end of the year
it was almost as if the horse
knew he was the star and
performed better than ever,
leading the pair to the World
title.
Jennifer Fisher says she
had a lot of help and support
in the quest for the title.
First, she thanks her hus-
band Ron, for his encourage-
ment and the horse of course.
While Jennifer Fisher was on
the road Ron took care of
riding all of their other
horses, worked the dogs and
managed to fit going to work
in too. The two were able to
enjoy showing together at
many of the spring shows
and a few in the summer and
,fall. Jennifer Fisher also
gives much credit and thanks
to her trainer, Charlie Smith,


for giving her guidance and
moral support at the right
moments.
Ron and Jennifer Fisher
are both avid horse lovers.
The two showed American
Quarter Horse Association
shows for almost ten years
before they started NRHA.
Ron was the first to get in-
volved in reining, with Jen-
nifer joining him the follow-
ing year.
Both Ron and Jennifer
Fisher are very talented
equestrians. They live on a
beautiful picturesque horse
ranch in DeFuniak Springs.
Windy Hill Ranch sits on top
of a hill overlooking their
lake, white threerail fencing
and green pastures with
horses grazing make the pic-
ture complete.

FDOT makes travel through work zones safer


The Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) re-
cently introduced the Motor-
istAwareness System (MAS)
to its contractors and the
traveling public in an effort
to increase work zone safety
and motorist convenience.
"The Motorist Awareness
System was designed to
make traveling through work
zones safer," said Brian
Blanchard, Director of the
FDOT State Office of Con-
struction. "It's the coordina-
tion of flashing regulatory
signs, radar speed display
units and increased law en-
forcement presence to guide
the motorists through the
work zone."


The MAS will be used on
highway construction sites
when the following condi-
tions exist:
The road construction is
being done on a multilane
highway (four or more lanes).
The posted speed limit is
55 miles or greater.
The road construction re-
quires a lane closure.
Construction workers are
present.
The goal of the system is to
make motorists aware of the
reduced speed in work zones.
In Florida, 130 people were
killed in 116 crashes in work
zones during 2004. Nearly
half of the fatalities were
speed related.


"When workers are not
present and construction is
complete for the day, motor-
ists will be able to return to
the normal posted speed for
the roadway," Blanchard
said. "The key to the effec-
tiveness of this system is to
discontinue blanket speed
reductions in the work zone.
The system will be acti-
vated when lane closures are
present and will be deacti-
vated when lane closures are
taken down."
To find out more about
FDOT's work zone safety ef-
forts, visit www.itsevery

partment's Web site at

IA *LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

PERSONAL COMMENTS


EDITOR'S COMMENT: By RON KELLEY


Kinder, gentler editorials


Since this is my first editorial of the new year, it's only
fitting that I share an important New Year's resolution with
you.
In the coming year, I promise to be kinder, gentler and
more sympathetic to the Bush administration, the state gov-
ernment, the county commission and the various city coun-
cils.
On one condition.
The president must promise to make sure that neither he
nor any of his staff members lie or cause lies to be told to the
American public about the reasons to go to war or weapons
that may or may not exist in foreign countries, or make deci-
sions based on guesses about whether or not those countries
have any ties to al-Qaeda or Osama bin Laden.
The administration must also agree to stop spying on in-
nocent American citizens, abandon the Patriot Act, promise
to stop sanctioning torture and stop stashing people in se-
cret prisons all over the world.
The administration must stop handing out no-bid contracts
to Haliburton and various drug companies and cease its at-
tempts to target the elderly by reducing Medicaid eligibility
or Social Security benefits.
The administration must begin to halt America's total de-
pendency on oil and immediately step up its alternative fuel
programs and stop trying to drill for oil in wildlife sanctuar-
ies and the Gulf of Mexico.
The state lawmakers must change the process for estab-
lishing Constitutional amendments to prevent any more idi-
otic pregnant pig amendments from being including in our
state constitution. It must also stop shuffling from one poor
excuse to another regarding the four-laning of U.S. 331.
The county commission must promise to make sure that
we are not sold a pig-in-a-poke regarding any long-range plan,
including a county-wide fire service program, that might ul-
timately cost hundreds of thousands of dollars with no mea-
surable increase in efficiency or safety.
The commission must also agree, if it plans to continue to
hire new employees at its present rate, to hire more Indians
than chiefs, since it's the Indians who actually do most of
the work.
The city council must agree to start supporting local busi-
nesses and make a real and genuine attempt to entice new
business here plus do all it can to help the existing busi-
nesses and stores that are struggling to stay afloat.
The council must name a Minister of Good Taste to over-
see Magnolia Cemetery or revamp the ordinance to make
sure that everyone is treated exactly the same.
It must also start supporting the city police department so
that more than one or two officers are on patrol at any given
time of the day or night and pay the officers enough to stop
this trend of training officers for a year so that they can get"
a job with the sheriff's office after they finish their intern-
ship with the city.
If those government bodies-will just agree to do these simple


Editor,
We had over two hundred people who attended the Christ-
mas Eve service at First United Methodist Church. The com-
munion collection for our White Christmas Fund totaled al-
most $6,000. We consider this to be a community undertak-
ing as well as a Methodist project.
The money will be used to. help support the group home
for girls in Milton. Your readers will be interested to learn
that we expect ground to be broken in March or April on an
emergency shelter for children 10 years and under, includ-
ing infancy, who have been removed from their homes be-
cause of abuse or neglect. This home will be located in
Shalimar.
An ideal situation would be to close all these homes and
have the children live with loving and responsible parents.
However, until that happens, it is good to know that we have
homes in Florida for children who need them.
Thank you so much for your attendance and your gener-
ous contributions, all of which will be used at the United
Methodist Children's Home.
Sincerely,
Marianne Hussey

things, I'll lay down my red ink pen and never write another
critical word about any of them.
That seems fair, don't you think? Then I can devote myself
to more pleasurable pursuits, such as telling you about some
of the strangest news stories of 2005.
How about the guy who left a half-gram of marijuana as a
tip at a Jacksonville Starbucks and was arrested when he
returned the next day or the Jacksonville church that called
for a city-wide ban on low-hanging pants and gold-capped
teeth.
In Port Charlotte, a pastor called police to remove 16 wor-
shippers who refused to stop singing as he tried to begin his
sermon.
There was a strange story about a woman who concealed a
stolen parrot in her bra I don't want to know how and an
equally bizarre story about a Key West man who robbed a
bank with a pitchfork. Was it the Farmer's Bank & Loan, I
wonder?
It was a bad year for dogs. A Collier County woman was
afraid her neighbor's Chihuahua was going to attack her, so
she shot and killed it. In Flagler County, an off-duty reserve
sheriff's deputy saved a cat by fatally shooting the dog that
was chasing it.
A man suspected of burglarizing a massage therapy busi-
ness was arrested after he returned to the scene looking for
his missing wallet. Two thieves stole an employee's car at a
Pensacola gas station then returned an hour later to fill up
and were arrested.
An Ocala man showed his wife a Utah man's wallet and
said it was a hitchhiker he picked up and murdered. After a
massive search for the body, police learned that the billfold's
owner was fine and the suspect confessed he made up the
story to get his wife to leave him. Duh, who'd want to stay
with that moron?
Parents: If you ask your teenage son to help you steal a
dishwasher and stove from the house next door, don't be sur-
prised if he calls the police the next time you get in an argu-
ment. That actually happened in Palm Beach County.
A drunk Monroe County prosecutor thought it would be
funny to streak across a parking lot and hop into a friend's
car. The problem was he jumped naked into the wrong car
and was arrested.
In a Tampa story involving alcohol, sex and football, two
Carolina Panthers cheerleaders were arrested after one
punched another woman in a nightclub bathroom. Other cus-
tomers said the women were having sex in a stall, which the
cheerleaders denied.
An Orlando-area high school chemistry teacher was ar-
rested after students said he gave a lesson on bomb build-
ing. In other school news, St. Petersburg police officers hand-
"-cuffed an unruly five-year-old girl after she acted up in her~
kindergarten class.
And finally, O.J. Simpson was back inithe news. In July, a
neighbor called 911 and reported Simpson was being beaten
up by his girlfriend. Later that month, Simpson was ordered
to pay $25,000 for pirating satellite television signals.
Can 2006 be stranger than this? I'll let you know next year.



Dear Editor

Having read some and heard some about the Walton
County Fire Rescue taking over management of the county's
volunteer fire departments I find a lot has been left unsaid.
What is really involved in the Walton County Fire Rescue
taking over management of the local volunteer departments?
Are we dealing with anything besides money? Do you think
the County has a better record in management? Why does
the county think "blackmail tactics" are warranted; cutting
off $87,000 in county funding if volunteer fire departments
don't join? That action affects the taxpayers in the Liberty
Fire District more than the fire department because tax-
payers must make up the difference. Make us pay twice, I
wouldn't suggest you try that.
Just how will the county dole out the funds if they have
control; through another layer of management? Why hasn't
county management met with Liberty Fire Board? Faced
with the unknown some volunteer fireman may just up and
quit; or so I've been told.
Why hasn't the county met with them, answered their
questions? Will Walton County Fire Rescue provide replace-
ment volunteer firefighters? We really need to hear the an-
swer to these and other questions before we can accept more
county assistance/interference, depending upon our perspec-
tive and BCC answers.

Dear Editor

The letter to the editor of December 29, spewing a foun-
tain of anti-Republican falsehoods and half-truths is more
than I can accept without comment. This letter was either
the result of gross ignorance or a deliberate attempt:to
present false information to the public.
He starts by quoting left-wing smear merchant Bill Moyers
(number 34 in Barnard Goldberg's book, "The 100 People
who are Screwing up America"). Moyers mentions a plaque
on the desk of Secretary of Defense, Donald that contains
the quote, "Aggressive fighting for the right is the noblest
sport the world affords."
What neither Moyer or the writer bother to mention is
that the quote is by Teddy Roosevelt. The plaque that so
offends this writer is a copy of a famous bronze of President
Roosevelt, created by renowned Western Sculptor James
Earl Fraser in 1920.
Continuing on in a half-baked, rambling analogy of war
as a game, he compares our nation's leaders with owners of
a sports franchise, becoming "filthy rich" while imposing a
"growing cancer on America's soul."
He states that there are "over 100,000 Iraqi" dead as a
result of our evil and wanton war. This is blatantly false.
Using the data of the left wing Internet sites this writer
claims as his source, civilian deaths resulting from the war
are stated as between 27,636 and 31,160.
Estimates of Iraqi military deaths during the active shoot-
ing portion of the war indicates that approximately 11,000 -
15,000 Iraqis, combatants and noncombatants, were killed
in the course of major combat actions according to the non-
partisan Project on Defense Alternatives. These figures are
tragic but well short of the "over 100,000 Iraqi dead" touted
by this author.
On the other hand,:deaths often by REAL torture, at the
hands of Saddam Husein are easily computed into six fig-
ures. The largest number of deaths attributable to Mr.
Hussein's regime resulted from the war between Iraq and
Iran between 1980 and 1988, which was launched by Mr.
Hussein. Iraq says its own toll was 500,000, and Iran's reck-
oning ranges upward of 300,000.
Casualties from Iraq's gulag are harder to estimate. Ac-
counts collected by Western human rights groups from Iraqi
emigrants and defectors have suggested that the number of
those who have "disappeared" into the hands of the secret
police, never to be heard from again, could be 200,000.
(Source'- The Iraqi Foundation)
The writer goes on to say that although the Vietnam war
was started using faulty information, "no one ever reported
that President Johnson ordered up fabricated evidence or
embedded political cronies in the NSA to create informa-
tion that supported the drive to war."
This is quite true. No one ever reported that about
Johnson. However, despite this writer's allegations, there
has been no evidence that President Bush did any of the
above either. None. Zero. Zip.
It should be noted also that the revelation that the Gulf of
Tonkin incident, which led President Johnson to attack
North Vietnam was not conclusively found to be a mistaken
assumption until 21 years after Johnson's death.
The writer laments that anyone should consider war a
'game. In actuality, no one does; not even Teddy Roosevelt.'
:' However, as a two-tour Vietnam combat vet who was actu-
ally shot at and hit, I suggest that we don't want our war-h
riors going into a shooting war with fears and doubts of the
rightness of their actions. Such a mindset is conducive to
those soldiers' early deaths. A gung ho, high morale outfit
will get the job done and suffer fewer casualties than a fear-
ful one.
The writer then wraps it all up with a moronic and unfor-
tunately typical leftist rant asserting that "it is not simply
a matter of'cut and run' vs.'stay the course.' Baloney! That
is exactly what it is a matter of doing. We have to stay and
continue to bring the Iraq military up to speed and then
leave. That has been the plan all along.
The American psyche is notoriously short of staying power.
It reminds one of the situation of Vietnam wherein we won
every single major military battle but lost the diplomatic
and journalistic war. One North Vietnamese officer is said
to have stated, "we can go on losing longer than you can go
on winning." He turned out to be right.
Congressman Murtha, hailed by this writer, is a fool or
worse to suggest as he did that we should bring our troops
out now.-The youngest Army or Marine Corps private knows
that to do so would be tantamount to surrender and a guar-
antee of a civil war in Iraq. A few medals don't make for
wisdom or even patriotism, it appears.
The writer suggests that Murtha's notion is "a reasonable
plan that would be good for our country and the world." I
would like to know just how that would be good for either,
but he didn't tell us that.
When the Republicans forced the "reasonable plan" to a
vote in the House it was overwhelmingly defeated and even
Murtha voted against his own proposal.
As usual, the Democrats don't have any real ideas on how
to solve any problems, only destructive criticisms. Such po-
sitions put all of us in real danger.

Veteran's organizations offer more than fun and fellowship


By BILL VORWLLD
DeFuniak Springs is home
to many military veterans,
and for them, it also has an
active post from three of the
four nationally recognized
organizations, AmVets, the
DAV, and the VFW..
The three have some basic
similarities. They all require
service in U.S. military in-
cluding the Coast Guard,
National Guard and the Re-
serves. All require a member
to have been honorably dis-
charged, if not still serving.
Annual dues for each is ap-
proximately $25 with an age-
based life membership avail-
able. Female service mem-
bers or veterans are eligible,
and encouraged, to join. For
ladies related to a member or
a spouse of a deceased mem-
ber, there is an auxiliary at
the VFW and AmVets (meet-
ings are on the same nights
as the posts). All three posts
offer meeting rooms to rent
for wedding receptions, par-
ties, or family gatherings.
There are, of course, unique
differences between the three
groups.
AmVets Post 178 is located
on U.S. 90 West, about 2.5
miles west of the DeFuniak
Springs Airport. Meetings
are held on the second Thurs-
day of each month at 7:30
p.m. In addition to the mem-
bership requirements listed
above, military service can
occur during war or peace-
time, within the United
States or overseas; simply
put anytime and anywhere.
Post 178 concentrates on two
programs: Americanism and
community service.
Americanism includes par-
ticipation in memorial ser-
vices on Veteran's Day, Me-
morial Day and the Fourth of
July Parade. After each of
these events, AmVetsW con-
ducts an honorable disposal,
'by burning, of worn, tattered,
'or otherwise unusable Ameri-
'dan flags. Flags in those con-
ditions can be turned to the
post at any time. Post volun-
teers have provided transpor-
tation of children to medical
facilities and built home ac-
cess ramps for handicapped
folks.
Community service is in
the form of the delivery of
baskets of food and clothing
to local needy families at
Christmas time. There is an
open invitation to everyone to
enjoy their many activities.
Among these are an annual


antique car show, yard sales,
bingo games on special occa-
sions, and the annual sum-
mer "Battle of the Bands,"
during which six bands per-
form in a play-off at the post.
An evening of music is
planned for January 7, when
"Chrome" is scheduled to
play. For this event, the pub-
lic is invited and entry is free.
Recently, the "Sons of
AmVets" was formed to pro-
vide activities of interest for
young men, requiring that
one be the son or grandson
of a vet qualified for member-
ship.
Vice Commander Gene
Gustman said Post 178 Club
is open seven days per week,
from 1 p.m. til 10 p.m. andi
any non-member may enjoy,
the light snacks and drink in
the company' of a post mem-
ber. Reach the AmVets at
892-4594
The DeFuniak Springs
DAV Chapter 98 is located at
131 Royal Street, north of
Highway 90 and near Twin
Lakes Plaza. Membership
requirements are under-
standably specific and open
only to veterans with a dis-
ability incurred during war-
time military service or simi-
lar armed conflict.
The DAV offers bingo each
Friday night beginning at 6,
p.m. Phone number: 892-
7818
The VFW Post 4437 is
found at the intersection of
Highway 90 and 25th Street
or across Hwy 90 from Oka-
loosa Walton College. Meet-
ings take place on the third
Thursday of each month at
6:30 p.m. Membership addi-
tionally requires that a vet-
eran have served in a war on
foreign soil. .
The VFW strongly sup-
ports Americanism, advo-
cacy, and service to the com-
munity.
The post provides an hon-
orable disposal ceremony,
when needed, by burning
faded and torn American
flags. Members attend events
on Veteran's Day and 1Memo-
rial Day and open the post to
the public for tours and re-
fresliments after the ser-
vices.
Sponsorship of the Voice of
Democracy speaking compe-
tition has been in the form of
monetary backing and topic
selection. Perhaps the best
known patriotic gesture by
the VFW, is the annual sale
of buddy poppies, small red
flowers serving as remem-


Gallagher urges car cautions


Tom Gallagher, Florida's
chief financial officer, cau-
tioned Florida's consumers
and auto dealers to beware of
buying used vehicles that
may have originated from
areas flooded by Hurricane
Katrina, and potentially Hur-
ricane Rita. Officials esti-
mate that 350,000 vehicles
were flooded in New Orleans
alone from Hurricane
Katrina, and up to 500,000
vehicles could have sustained
flood damage throughout
Louisiana, Mississippi and
Alabama from this storm.
Many of these vehicles are
shipped to other states, in-
cluding Florida, through car
wholesalers.
"While most states, like
Florida, require vehicle titles
to bear brands of 'flood ve-
hicle' and 'salvage/rebuilt,'
some wholesalers may inten-
tionally transfer titles to
avoid branding since it dimin-
ishes a vehicle's value," said
Gallagher. "The unsuspect-
ing consumer doesn't know
whether the vehicle has been
totaled or even adequately
repaired, potentially putting
loved ones in danger."
The Florida Department of
Financial Service has
partnered with Carfax.com to
give consumers and auto
dealers, the ability to check
vehicle identification num-
bers (VIN) of cars previously
registered in FEMA-declared
flood-disaster areas. The Car
Check: Check out a Vehicle's
History link is now available
atwww.fldfs.com. The search
is available to Floridians at
no charge. The VIN number
is found on the inside of the


driver's door or on the lower
left corner of the inside of the
windshield.


branches of fallen comrades
and hospitalized vets.
This year's efforts raised
over $800 (divided with the
Ladies Auxiliary for their in-
valuable support during the
sale). Community service has
included support for the lo-
cal Civil Air Patrol, a dinner/
dance fundraiser for Asian
tsunami victims that netted
near $1,000 for that cause,
and assistance for victims of
Hurricane Katrina.
Activities are numerous
and have included a pool
tournament league, a "Poker
Run" motorcycle ride in north
Walton County with the win-
ner pocketing $100, the First
Annual Chicken Day, featur-
ing food, drink, karaoke, and
a special contest .that can
only be explained by a post
member.
Among future events will
be bingo every Sunday at 1
p.m. for early birds and 2
p.m. for regular bingo (call
the post at 892-3539 for de-
tails) and karaoke on Satur-
day and Sunday nights.
House Chairman Greg
Maierle reminds everyone
interested that the Canteen
'happy hour is everyday from
4 to 6 p.m. with snacks and
light sandwiches available.
The bar remains open into
the evening.
One thread common to the
veterans organizations is the
problem of declining atten-
dance. While the rosters of
the local VFW and the
AmVets boast over 150 reg-
istered members, attendance
at regular meetings rarely
tops 10. At that level, the
work necessary to maintain
the posts, and support their
activities, falls on the same
small number of devoted but
weary members and spouses.
AmVets Vice Commander
Gustman has suggested a
remedy, if financial health
and attendance continues to
erode. He points.out that
anyone qualified fo miember-
ship in the VFW, meets all
the requirements to join the
AmVets. Perhaps one generic
veterans organization with
the combined members, rev-
enue, and talent would be
best for DeFuniak Springs.
Using one facility, the com-
bined workforce could pro-
duce more effective commu-
nity service and activities for
all.
The benefits provided by
the AmVets, DAV, and VFW
to their members are many
and varied but the younger
veterans in the area do not
seem eager to participate.
Diligent advocacy work being
done on behalf of all veter-
ans, by these organizations
has resulted in increased pro-
tection for and addition of

health and medical benefits.
It is strange, and unfortu-
nate, then that one who has
served his or her country and
guarded hard won.freedoms
for us all, might not want to
enjoy those benefits as they
continue to serve their com-
munity.
The VFW, DAV, and
AmVets encourage all eli-
gible men and women to
"look us over," visit the posts
and chapters, and sit in on a
meeting or a karaoke session.

the epic veterans story
Tommy., "we're common men
in barricks, most
remarkably] like you."

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JANUARY 05, 2006


CARING & SHARING would not be able to do what it does if it were not for the
giving spirit of the community and their devoted staff. Hundreds of children would
not even have Christmas dinner. According to Caring & Sharing Staff "Words can-
not express the thankfulness and joy that has been brought to the people of this
community as well as to the staff and volunteers that are blessed enough to see it
alltake place."



Nursing admissions now open at OWC


The application period for
Fall 2006 admission to the
associate degree registered
nursing program at
Okaloosa-Walton College is
now open. Admission is com-
petitive and there is a limited
number of slots available.
New admissions criteria
now requires all applicants to
attend an information ses-
sion as part of the application
process. Sessions are free and
reservations are not neces-
sary. All sessions will be held
at the OWC Niceville campus
in Building "E" room 130 at
6:00 p.m. Applicants may
choose from sessions sched-
uled January 30, February 7,
February 13, or March 6,
2006. Application packets
are available from OWC and
on the nursing program


website at www.owc.edu/
nursing. The application
deadline is April 3, 2006.
Other recent changes to
the admissions criteria for
the OWC registered nursing
program allow prospective
students to improve their
point standing in the com-
petitive selection process.
Additional points are as-.
signed to applicants who
achieve higher grades in pre-
requisite anatomy and physi-
ology courses and higher
overall grade point aver-
ages.
The OWC associate degree
registered nursing program
began in 2001 as the first
health technology program at
the college and to date has
graduated 131 nursing stu-
dents. Health instruction at


OWC also includes a joint
bachelor of science in nurs-
ing program with the Uriiver-
sity of West Florida and
OWC dental, assisting and
surgical technology pro-
grams. A radiology
technology program is slated
to begin in 2006.

This past August, OWC
expanded available slots the
associate degree registered
nursing program to by 50
percent. A nursing class of
54 freshman students
and 24 LPN 's is admitted to
the program annually.

For information on the
OWC nursing and health
technology programs see the
college web site at www.owc.
edu/nursing or call 729-6400.


Is your child at risk?


By JEANNIE BENT .
The most commdonlused
drug among Florida stu-
dents, after alcohol, tobacco,
and marijuana, is inhalants.
Inhalant abuse is the delib-
erate inhaling, sniffing, or
huffing of common household
and school products to obtain
a "high." Inhalants are more
prevalent with younger stu-
dents today because they are
cheaper, easier to hide from
parents, easier to get, and are
legal. This finding is typical
of most youth substance use
surveys.
In Walton County, the per-
centage of students that have
used inhalants on at least
one occasion in their lifetimes
is 15.8 percent. This corre-
lates to a rate of 18.5 percent
among middle school stu-


dents and 13.8 percent
among high school students.
Overall, 5.3 percent of Wal-
ton County students sur-
veyed reported the use of in-
halants in the past 30 days,
with grade-cohort averages
of 8.0 percent for middle
school students and 3.0 per-
cent for high school students.

The prevalence of using in-
halants for 2004 is higher in
Walton County compared to
the state of Florida as a
whole. Among all surveyed
grades, 5.3 percent of stu-
dents reported inhalant use
in the past 30 days compared
to 4.2 percent of surveyed
students statewide. This in-
creased rate of use applies to
middle school (8.0 percent for
Walton County versus 6.6


percent statewide) and high
school (3.0 percent for Wal-
ton County versus 2.4 per-
cent statewide) grade-co-
horts.
PALS (Promoting Appro-
priate Life Skills) encourages
parents, teachers, coaches,
and the community as a
whole to educate themselves
on inhalant abuse as being a
major problem among youth.
One of the most important
steps parents can take is
talking to their children or
other youngsters about not
experimenting, even for the'
first time, with inhalants. By
discussing this problem
openly and stressing the dev-
astating effects of inhalant
abuse, parents can help pre-
vent a tragedy. A child's first
time experiment could be
their last.
Tlis information was gath-
ered and presented by PALS,
a prevention program admin-
istered through COPE Cen-
ter, Inc. and funded through
the governor's Drug-Free
Communities Grant Pro-
gram Title IV funding from
the No Child Left Behind Act.
For further information on
inhalant abuse, contact the
National Inhalant Preven-
tion Coalition at 1-800-269-
4237 or COPE Center at
(850) 892-8405.


CARING & SHARING OF NORTH WALTON has once again had a wonderful
Christmas Program, with the help of unselfish generous citizens and businesses of
Walton County. As a result Caring & Sharing was able to provide many Thanks-
giving and Christmas dinner baskets and over 300 children's Christmas presents
this Year! Very special groups helped to make it all possible, including Am-Vets,
The Anchor Club from Walton High School, Center Ridge Methodist Church,
Freeport High School Student Council, Kelley's SuperValue, the South Walton Fire
District, the South Walton Professional Fire Fighters Association, Tyndall Enter-
prises, Walton Electric, and the Walton Middle School Beta Club, as well as count-
less others businesses and individuals and small groups.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JANUARY 05, 2006


SPrice-goughing in top 10 list of complaints


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson
announced that price-goug-
ing complaints have once
again made it into the list of
top 10 complaints for calen-
dar year 2005. Last year
was the first year price-goug-
ing even made it to the top
10 list following an unprec-
Sedented hurricane season.
The No. 1 complaint in 2005
involved violations of
SFlorida's No Sales Law. Price
Gouging ranked third.


The price-gouging law is
activated when the governor
declares a state of emer-
gency, which occurred sev-
eral times in 2005. There
were 3,464 written price-
gouging complaints since
January 1, 2005.
"It is clear that word has
gotten out to consumers that
they have a place to turn
when a person or business is
trying to unfairly make a
huge profit during an emer-
gency situation," Bronson
said. "This department in-


vestigates and aggressively
takes action on price-gouging
complaints, and I hope this
information sends a message
to those who would contem-
plate such egregious actions
when citizens are trying to
protect themselves in a hur-
ricane or other emergency.
Written complaints about
violations of the state's Do
No Call List led the top 10
list with 4,120 complaints.
Bronson took legal action
against 33 companies in
2005 for Do Not Call viola-


tions and obtained more
than $102,000 in fines
against violators. Travel/va-
cation plans ranked second
with 3,909 written com-
plaints.
The Department's Division
of Consumer Services is the
clearinghouse for consumer
complaints for Florida. The
division regulates nearly a
dozen industries and can
take a number of actions
against those in violation of
state law including levying
fines, revoking registrations


or turning cases over to Ag-
ricultural Law Enforcement
for criminal action. The divi-
sion also tries to mediate
complaints for consumers
involving industries that are
not regulated by the Depart-
ment by contacting them on
behalf of consumers and
working to resolve the dis-
putes.
In 2005, the division re-
ceived a total of 30,315 writ-
ten complaints compared
with 23,718 in 2004. The
Department was able to re-


cover more than $5.3 million
in refunds and services for
consumers this past year.
Bronson urges consumers
to contact the Department's
consumer help line at 1-800-
HELPFUL (1-800-435-7352)
to register any complaints or
to find out the complaint his-
tory against a company be-
fore they do business with
them. Consumers can also
file complaints online by vis-
iting the Division of Con-
sumer Services web site at
www.800helpfla.com.

Most of what was accomplished during

The lease plan for Morrison Springs has been completed
and a committee has been appointed to plan a first class
recreational facility on the site.
Shirl Williams, Assistant County Administrator said the
acquisition of an additional 10 acres of land adjacent to the
Helen McCall Park in south Walton County will allow for
expansion of the park and more ball fields and play area.


Planning and Development Division reorganized and in-
creased staff in 2005 to provide for enhanced development
engineering and environmental.reviews, current and long
range planning, code enforcement, and building depart-
ment services as Walton County grows. As a result of this,
building plan reviews were reduced from 7 weeks to 1 to 2
days from application to permitting.
Meetings were also reduced, eliminating the once monthly
stand-alone Land Use BCC meeting to include subdivision
and commercial development approvals in the regular
County Commission meetings that are held twice each
month. This improved customer service for those types of
projects.
Planning and Development looks forward to enhancing
services further in 2006 and working closely with the Flor-
ida Department of Community Affairs to improve and
streamline our Comprehensive Plan and Land Develop-
ment Code.
















The TDC ensured our beaches were ready to welcome visitors
after Hurricane Ivan, through the removal of all debris, re-
building of all 56 dune walkovers, repairing restroom facili-
ties and parking lots and replacing 450,000 cubic yards of
sand before Memorial Day Weekend. The TDC also aggres-
sively responded after the 2005 storms to remove debris and
lobby for emergency beach restoration efforts and beach
scraping.
To overcome misperceptions regarding our beaches after the
storms, the TDC developed a video news release reaching 1.4
million viewers to communicate we were open for business, as
well as hosted a satellite media tour which reached an addi-
tional 2.9 million viewers on national TV.
The TDC published an Art, Nature and Cultural Guide to pro-
mote attractions all over Walton County. The guide received
state-wide recognition with a "Best of Show" Golden Image
Award from the Florida Public Relations Association.

Wall to


wall


beaches


in south


Walton
By DOTTY NIST
As new areas along the
Walton County beachfront
join in the seawall frenzy
that started in the wake of
the 2005 hurricanes, some
seawall construction appears
to be at odds with state
guidelines, and also property
ownership in at least one in-
stance.
Seawall construction
blocks a neighborhood pub-
lic beach access in the Old
Seagrove Beach area east of
Azalea Street, and appar-
ently no one asked for per-
mission to extend the wall
across the county beach ac-
cess point.
In December, Blue Moun-
tain Beach homeowners
seeking a state permit for a
siwall 'o n either side of the
public beach access at
Seagrade Road did ask for
county permission to extend
the wall across the public
access. They offered to pay, in
addition to their part, for the
portion of the \wall next to the
access.
Brad Pickel, beach man-
agement director for the
South Walton Tourist Devel-
opment Council (TDC), rec-
ommended that the county
accept the offer. He explained
-hat leaving a gap at the ac-
cess point could result in a
"wash out" situation during
storm events.
The Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
approved the extension of the
seawall across the public ac-
cess.
Pickel said that some
Seagrove homeowners also
approached the county about
the possibility of extending a
seawall across the Gardenia
Street public access. This was
not agreed to, since the sea-
wall \iwas te occupy just one,
not both sides of the public
access, he commented.
Pickel reported that said
these were the only two in-
stances in which
homeowners asked for per-

mission to extend seawalls
across public beach accesses.
All of the 48 public beach
accesses maintained by the
TDC were destroyed in the
hurricanes that hit the Gulf
Coast last year. Pickel said 20
of those have now been re-
constructed.
He said that initially the
public accesses at CR-395
and Gardenia Street had
been slated for rebuilding
along with those 20 but that
"construction challenges" de-
layed those two projects.
The "huge drop offs" left
by beach erosion at many of
the accesses may require re-
design of some of the dune
walkovers, he said, and the
large piles of sand that
homeowners have added to
the beach have also compli-
cated rebuilding, since some
of that sand has migrated
onto the access points.
There has been some con-
cern among residents that
their neighborhood beach
accesses will "go away" be-
cause of seawall construction
and delays in reconstruction
of walkovers, but Pickel said
they can be assured that the
public accesses will be main-
tained.
Pickel said the TDC's goal
is still to have 47 of the 48
beach accesses operational
by spring 2006, even if that
means building walkovers
over seawalls, as it may in
the case of the Seagrade
Road access.

Possible beach restoration along CR-30A



A new shoreline for Walton County


THIS SECTION OF Miramar Beach is one of those await-
ing the large-scale beach restoration project planned by Wal-
ton County and Destin this year.


By DOTTY NIST
With the large-scale resto-
ration of Walton County's
western beaches expected to
begin soon, the county is also
responding to erosion-related
concerns on the remainder of
the beaches in the wake of
the past two years' destruc-
tive hurricanes.
A public workshop is
scheduled for next week for
the presentation of informa-
tion on beach and dune ero-
sion on the beaches along
CR-30A, emergency recovery
projects conducted by the
county on this section, plus
future large-scale restoration
efforts.


Brad Pickel, beach man-
agement director for the
South Walton Tourist Devel-
opment Council (TDC), said
he hopes the workshop will
begin a dialog with residents
and help gauge public opin-
ion, particularly on the pos-
sibility of a large-scale beach
restoration project on the
CR-30A beaches.
After Hurricane Dennis
hit the Gulf Coast last sum-
mer, the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) directed
county staff to determine
what could be done to correct
erosion on these beaches.
The county's beach resto-


ration consultant Taylor En-
gineering was enlisted to col-
lect new beach profiles
countywide, update the
county's beach management
feasibility study, and identify
additional areas in need of
restoration.
After Hurricane Ivan in
2004, 11.9 milqs of the
county's beachfront was des-
ignated by the state as criti-
cally eroded and therefore
eligible for matching state
renourishment funding. In
the wake of last year's
storms, Pickel expects from
15 to 20 miles of the county
beachfront to be so desig-
nated.


Taylor Engineering was
also tasked with collecting
and analyzing offshore sand
samples for additional large-
scale restoration efforts in
Walton County The results of
those studies will be pre-
sented at the workshop, and
they will serve as ground-
work for decisions on future
projects.
Meanwhile, the contract
for the joint large-scale beach
restoration project planned
for seven miles of western
Walton County and Destin
has been awarded to Great
Lakes Dredge and Dock

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JANUARY 05, 2006



Fine mounts to $11,000



on clear-cut lot on 30-A


By DOTTY NIST

Clear cutting property on
CR-30A contrary to Walton
County Land Development
Code regulations has proved
an expensive proposition for
a Memphis company.
Fines for the activity had
reached $11,000 as of Jan. 3,
and restoration planting will
also be mandated.
Native vegetation was
stripped from the 2.84-acre
undeveloped lot, located
across from White Cliffs in
Blue Mountain Beach, the
weekend before Thanksgiv-
ing, according to Kevin
Hargett, Walton County code
enforcement coordinator.
Hargett said the owner of
the property, Premier 30A
L.L.C., had not obtained a
land clearing permit as re-
quired by code. The county
had not received any appli-
cation for a development or-
der on the property or any
development plans at the
time of the clearing, Hargett
added.


The county first issued a
stop work order and sent a
notice of violation to the com-
pany, and they were directed
to contact the county plan-
ning department before un-
dertaking any additional ac-
tivity on the site.
Hargett said the clear cut-
ting of the native scrub veg-
etation was found to be in
violation of code vegetative
preservation requirements
applying to the CR-30A sce-
nic corridor. The require-
ments call for the retention
of 50 percent of the vegeta-
tion or 25 percent if the de-
veloper opts for a fee ar-
rangement "equivalent to the
value of the land area that
would otherwise have been
preserved," to quote the code.
However, the reduction of
the preservation percentage
is at the discretion of the
county, and Hargett said
that, under the circum-
stances, it is not being offered
to the developer.
He explained that on Dec.
13, code enforcement im-
posed a $500-a-day fine, to
continue daily until the prop-
erty owner has submitted
and received approval of a
restoration plan that will
entail the replanting of the


equivalent of 50 percent of
native vegetation that was
removed from the lot.
As of Jan. 3, no plan had
been approved. Bill McKee of
the Walton County Planning
Department said that a pro-
posed plan had been submit-
ted but not finalized.
He added that, while the
lot will never be the same as
it was before it was cleared,
the company has "tenta-
tively" agreed to revegetate


with a representation of the
plants that were on the prop-
erty.
McKee said the proposed
plan calls for native vegeta-
tion to occupy the areas be-
tween the homes that will go
on the property and on the
corners of the site. He noted
that the county hopes to see
some replanting worktaking
place in the corners where no
development is planned
within a short time frame.


VEGETATION WAS REMOVED from this undeveloped
lot in Blue Mountain Beach contrary to county regulations.

Sherlock Holmes' Beach Hounds


Society to meet January 10, 2006


It is time for the annual
celebration of Sherlock
Holmes birthday with a
meeting of the Sherlockians,
a local chapter that was es-
tablished last January here
at their designated home at
the Santa Rosa Beach Club
in Walton County. The chap-
ter chose the name of"Beach
Hounds" as their moniker,
and it is now officially listed
in the International Registry
of The Baker Street Irregu-
lars along with approxi-
mately 844 other societies or
chapters around the world.
This year's meeting wil
be held on Tuesday, Jan. 10,
at 6 p.m. at the Santa Rosa
Beach Country Club in
Santa Rosa Beach.
The most famous Sherlock
Holmes Society of the Baker
Street Irregulars was
founded in 1934 by Christo-
pher Morley. Membership is
by invitation only The major
event is an annual January
dinner in New York -- the cen-
terpiece of an annual "birth-
day weekend" that brings
hundreds of Sherlockians to
New York.
The BSI has approximately
197 "scion societies," the
Beach Hounds being one,
across the United States and
kindred societies in 22 other
countries.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle,
the author of Sherlock
Holmes adventures, is the
second most published au-
thor in the world, the first
being mystery writer Agatha
Christy. Conan Doyle's
Sherlock Holmes was, by all
accounts, born on Jan. 6,
1854 and for more than a cen-
tury, his name has been
known in every country of the
world; not onlyhis name, but
his appearance too. The
hawk-like features and pierc-
ing eyes; the dressing-gown
and pipe; the deerstalker cap
and magnifying glass these
details are so familiar that if

Walton


County's


Birthday
By Kris Chavez
Local historian Brenda
Rees recently invited friends
and colleagues to her Eastern
Lake home to honor Walton
County's 181st birthday.
Founded December 29, 1824,
Walton County will celebrate
its bicentennial in 2024.
Brenda began the countdown
to the county's 200th birthday
last year and hopes to con-
tinue the homage each year
until the big day arrives De-
cember 29, 2024.
Many of us shared a hearty
laugh as we calculated what
our ages will be in 2024. Let's
see now, if I was born in '52,
that means in 2024 I'll be how
old!?!?
At sunset, the view from
the deck overlooking Eastern
Lake toward the Gulf was
spectacular. A lot of us swore
we saw the "green flash" at
the exact moment the sun

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JANUARY 05, 2006


2006 came in on a
foggy, warm evening
and with it, a new
year of hope and
prosperity. 'Many
among the art com-
munity feel that af-
ter last year's hor-
rific weather and
mass construction
along the coast, they
have their work cut
out for them in 2006.

On Saturday evening, I at-
tended a few get together on
30A with several of my out-
of-town friends. We sampled
hours d' oeuvres, watched
fireworks, caught up with old
pals and ust had a great time
overall as we waited for
stroke of midnight.
Throughout the evening
and actually throughout the
entire holiday season, the
main topic of conversation
was about the weather this
past year along the coast and
the effects it has had on the
local economy, especially
those who craft and design
for a living. Their story is one
that I have heard for several
months and deserves to be
talked about.
As a show producer, I had
several art shows, concerts
and events that were sched-
uled for the outdoors,
cancelled due to various
tropical storm threats and
hurricanes. It was a summer
of phone calls to the artists,
ticket holders, the properties
and the press, once again
cancelling a show because of
mother nature.
It was a few months of
guessing and a year of trying
to recover from the financial
blows..
But for those artists that
depend on the sale of their
artistic product, it was espe-
cially depressing.
Some of the artists I spoke
to this weekend, said they
had their work spaces
flooded, their stores demol-
ished and even had .50-70
percent decrease in sales
from 2004. This due to the
increase number of cancella-
tions of tourists coming down
to the Emerald Coast this
past tourist season.
They said people were just
scared to venture down this
way. It was like a tidal wave
of conversation that spread
me with each new tourists
season (March-October)
there will be a new batch a
tourist and hopefully a crowd


that is ready to spend money
on local art and artists.
from tourist to tourist. "Stay
away from the Emerald
Coast of Florida, they have
too many storms."
Artists have also said that
host locations for art shows,
are now selling off the prop-
erty to build condos and re-
tail shops. Once again, art-
ists are asking, "what about
those of us who make all
those homes and shops beau-
tiful with our artwork.? Do
we just pack it up and move
on over to Mexico Beach/Port
St. Joe where they seem to
really want us?"
Many of these artists have
been here for more than 30
years and have started their
artistic careers on the Emer-
ald Coast, after moving to the
area because of it being an
art mecca, they say that they
are being priced out of the
retail space or their studios
are being gobbled up by de-
velopers. Whatever the story
might be, it is obvious that
the artists are at their wits
end.andthe: coast is running
a good chance of losing them.
Many of these artists have
gone to selling real estate,
running restaurants or even
developing land they had
bought years ago. They say
their art had to come second
to making a living.
The 2006 WSBZ Smooth
Jazz Concert is having to be
moved to Seascape in Destin
due to construction on the
greens at its former location.
The West Indies Market at
Rosemary Beach is another
long standing annual event
that has drawn thousands to
its properties over the past
six year, but will now be
moving to a new, undisclosed
area in 2007.
Both of these events are
two of the biggest crowd-
drawing, artist- participat-
ing events on the Florida
Emerald Coast, and now
they are having to find new
homes due to expansion, de-
velopment and/or homeown-
ers and merchants who want
more and more retail shop
space, but don't want their
locations or subdivisions to
be too overcrowded, or com-
mercial.
Guess what, folks? you
can't have it both ways and
only one person or one party
will benefit from these deci-
sions!
As the new year gets into
full swing and artists once
again get ready to greet thou-
sands who have travelled
from all over the area and
country to attend the various
cultural events, they are
optimistic. Many have told

north to rest up at winter's
end. Before I give you the
happenings, let me remind
you that all require member-
ship in WCS which can be ac-
complished from 8:30 to
11:30 a.m. every Monday
morning at the Faith Assem-
bly Church, 306 S. Geronimo
St., just behind the Miramar
Beach Post Office.
The deal of the century is
the six bucks per person
which buys ballroom dancing
lessons with Leonard and
Janet Hoover, (850)837-3532
from 7-8 p.m. every Monday
evening at the Faith Assem-
bly Church. Last sign-up for
class will be at registration
Jan. 9. Or enjoy line dancing
with Diane Likhite,
(850)837-5712, at 3:30 p.m.
on Monday at the Faith As-
sembly Church.
Speaking of all these won-
derful dance moves, let's
have a dance. That would be
possible if we had a chair, co-
chair or even a davenport.
We have a partial committee
that has volunteered to help;
just need the bossman or
woman. Talk to our illustri-
ous leader, Marilyn Barnard,
at (850)654-9129 and she will
lead you in the right direc-
tion.
While Marilyn is on the line,
ask to speak to her husband,
Hugh, who is our coordinator
with the Walton County
Computer Club. The club has
graciously allowed our mem-


bership to join them from
6:30 to 8:30 p.m. every sec-
ond and fourth Tuesday in
the Faith Assembly Church
Hall.
Something new has been
added, too. A published au-
thor will be the 'Introduction
to Writing' volunteer. Jan
Evan Whitford, whose first
novel, Mystic Island, will be
available at a book signing on
Saturday, Jan. 14, at Destin's
Barnes and Noble, is the new
volunteer. Time, date, and
place of creativity will be
available at registration.
If members found time to
read Master Butcher's Sing-
ing Club, by Louise Erdich,
make arrangements to join
the Book Discussion group on
Thursday, Jan. 19. Call
Valerie Beall (850)837-8624
for details.
Always wanted to knit?
Can't tell a knit from a purl?
Ruth Crenshaw will help be-
ginners to accomplished knit-
ters from 2-4 p.m. beginning
Thursday, Jan. 12, (850)837-
9368.
If there's a song in the air,
it's probably the Snowbird
Singers and/or the Barber-
shop Singers. The barber-
shop group gathers at 9:45
a.m. every Friday in the choir
room of the Destiny Worship
Center, 122 Poinciana Blvd.
(across from Bruno's). The
S.S. rehearse in the sanctu-
ary at the church, same day.
Bill and Carol Addington are
the fearless leaders,
(850)837-5736.
If the 'big one got away',
Verlin Jackson, a knowledge-
able fishing expert, will see
to all the right arrangements
for either a group of folks or
the more focused six-person
team. Give Verlin a call
(850)654-1425, ext. 6-1206.

THE ALYS BEACH butteries are now in place, along the
CR-30A right-of-way and are catching a lot of glances. In-
cluded with the. Jan. 2004 approval of the eastern Walton
County coastal development as a planned unit development
(PUD,) these structures will mark the Alys Beach bound-
aries on CR-30A and are also to serve the dual function of
"traffic calming." The butteries stand on either side of the
county highway at the east and west ends of Bermuda and
Guatemala-inspired "new town" under construction.




The Child Advocate


By Julie Hurst,
Director, Emerald Coast
Children's Advocacy Center


V- I would like to wish every-
g one a "Happy and Prosperous
- New Year." It is incredibly
n difficult to imagine that the
r holidays are over.
3 I don't know if you are like
e me, but I am finished with
y, Christmas on Christmas
y, Eve, usually midnight, and
- sometimes still wrapping
n Christmas gifts for family
- events that afternoon. I
e never really have time to sit
e down and admire the tree or
e listen to Christmas music.
-' The only time I listened to
Christmas music was when
- I was in my car driving from
- store to store.
y My New Year's resolution
r this year is to be done with
Christmas stuffby December
15 and enjoy the holidays.
Someone remind me to see if
it really happens.'
The year 2005 was a won-
derful year for the Emerald
Coast- ChiMdren's Advocacy
Center. So many folks helped
us make a difference for so
many children. We tracked
more than 1,500 cases of
child physical and sexual
abuse in Okaloosa and Wal-
ton counties and provided
more than 3,000 services to
include mental health coun-
seling, crisis counseling, com-
Smunity referrals.
The center would like to
take this opportunity to ex-
press our gratitude. We 'are
thankful for folks like the
DeFuniak Springs Herald
and Beach Breeze, who allow
us to share valuable infor-
mation about children and
the Children's Advocacy Cen-
ter with you.
We thank the team mem-
bers in Walton and Okaloosa
counties for their commit-


meant and perseverance to
make this community a safer
place for children. We thank
those who support the center
and its work. It is because of
these people that we are able
to continue to provide a child-
friendly-environment where
children and families can
heal from the hurt and
trauma of abuse.
We thank those who help
make a very special Christ-
mas for children at the cen-
ter a Christmas they will
never forget. A special
thanks to those many people
and businesses who helped in
collecting toys and gifts for
the children and 'their
families. A special thanks to
a new team partner Toys for
Tots. The Walton County
Leadership alumni created a
magical Christmas party for
the kids. We will never be
able to give you the thanks
you truly deserve. A special
thanks tp Bobby and Stuart
for their enduring vision sup-
port and commitment. You
all better get busy if you are
going, io top last ye4y's party
and, tar, I.,abm a believer
that toys can really fly!
That evening was truly
magical. Driving home after
the party, I realized that even
through hurt and sadness,
there can be hope and
kindness. That hope and
kindness is the Children's
Advocacy Center that's
what we set out to do. Be-
cause of all of you, we are
able to be the hope and kind-
ness allowing children and
their families to overcome
the hurt and trauma of abuse
so they can laugh and smile
just as they did that
evening.
Please remember if you sus-
pect or know of child abuse,
please contact the Florida
Abuse Hotline at 1-800-962-
2873.
