A COAlBINED WITH THE BREEZE


Council annexes more


property, turns profit on fee


COMMISSIONER KEN PRIDGEN and Freeport Mayor
Alickey larse during their meeting with DOT officials.


By RON KELLEY
The DeFuniak Springs
City Council approved ex-
panding the city limits by
annexing land at the request
of one developer and agreed
to seek the annexation of
another piece of land owned
by a second.
Councilman James
Huffman noted that over the
last six months, the council
has approved the annexation
of approximately 600 acres.
During the Jan. 9 meeting,
council members approved
the annexation of 320 acres
of land on U.S. 331S, which
connects the eastern portion
of the Pickett's Crossing
property with that of
Healthmark Regional Hospi-
tal.The hospital is not inside
the city limits at this time.
The council also voted to
start the process ofannexing
approximately 120 acres of
land located northeast of
Made Saunders Elemen-
tary School and Magnolia
Lakes subdivision. A small
piece of the property lies next
to Hwy. S3N, but Jimmy
Henderson of HJH Develop-
ers said they would probably
use other access points, due
to wetland issues.
The development requires
a large-scale amendment
and Henderson said they
would likely not be able to
start construction on the
land before'late 2007. The
subdivision would contain
about 270 homes in the
$250,000 to $350.000 price
range.


The city also made a tidy'
profit on a fee charged to
Mike Jenkins, a developer
who had posted a $55,000
check to the city just before
Christmas. The check was
returned by the bank for in-
sufficient funds and Jenkins
brought in another check on
Jan. 3 to City Hall and paid
a city fine of 2.756. .
Monday night, Jenkins.
asked the council to consider
reducing the amount of the
fine, which he considered ex-
cessive.
Finance director Sara
Bowers told the council that
it has been city policy to
charge either $40 or five per-
cent'of the check, whichever
was greater. She said that
accepting the check had cost
the city $6 and she could not
remember the last time the
city had actually charged the
five percent, but said that
there had been cases in the
past when this had been
done.
City attorney Clayton
Adkinson told the council
that the statute that the fi-
nance department relies
upon for guidance actually
refers only to legal prosecu-
tion and thus allows the
council to asse-s any, fee :r
fine up to five percent of the
amount of the check.
Adkinson said the council
can review each such fee re-
duction request on its own
merit.
City .manager Kim
Presnell did not favor a
change, saying, "This is the


policy we've practiced."
The council was divided.
Councilmen Huffman and
Don Harrison agreed that
the fee seemed excessive
since Jenkins had acted
quickly to make the Qheck
good and had already paid
the penalty fee. Harrison fa-
vored a two-percent fee. How-
ever, councilmen Mark
Anderson, Roy McLeod and
James Coffield voiced con-
cerns that reducing the fee
would set an unhealthy pre-
cedent.
Ultimately, the 3-2 vote
reflected the split, with the
majority voting to leave the
fee unchanged, allowing the
city to enjoy a $2,750 profit.
The council gave Larry
Laird, assistant city man-
ager, approval to move for-
wiard with creating recom-
mendations on raising-the
building and development
permit fees for the city, bring-
ing them closer to those
charged by Walton and
Okaloosa county govern.-
ments.
The council also approved
the first.reading of a zoning
change brought by Laird on
property he and his wife own
on Bob Sikes Road.Although
lbutf'feed on twv. o ides by resi-
dential property and single-
family homes, Laird's prop-
erty is also near Wal-Mart
and Winn Dixie.
Laird described the land
as being "surrounded by com-
mercial property" and said
that, ifallowed to change the
zoning from R-1 to C-2, he


plans to convert the property
into an office building.
In other news. the council
submitted a tentative agree-
ment to Walton County Ad-
ministrator Ronnie Bell, re-
garding the management of
the city-owned Gene Hurley
Recreational Park, west of
the city airport.
Bell told the councilmen
that he felt the agreement
would be accepted by the
commissioners. If so, the
county would take over man-
agement of the park. Kim
Presnell mentioned recent
acts of vandalism to the
skateboard park area and
suggested that the skate-
board portion of the facility
be moved to another place,
possibly at Harbeson Field,
where there would be less
danger of vandalism. Bell'
agreed that, due to the rela-
tively isolated location of the
Gene Hurley park, that
might be a wise decision.
Just before closing the
meeting, Mayor Harold Car-
penter announced his choice
for a third member for the
city's cemetery committee,
Jack Owens. Carpenter also
noted that the committee
meets on the third Tuesday
ofeach quarter, with the next
meeting scheduled for Tues-
day, Jan. 17. Carpenter said
the this will be an organiza-
tional meeting only, but he
did say that they would hear
public comments at that
time, which would be taken
under advisement. The meet-
ing will begin at 6 p.m. at
City Hall.


Chapman to qualify as




DFS police investigator


By BR'UCE COLLIER
DeFuniak Springs City
Marshal Mike Adkinson con-
firmed that he has approved
William Chapman for hire as
an investigator with DFS Po-
lice Department. Chapman
nwas formerly a colonel with
the Walton County Sheriff's
Office (WCSO).
Adkinson said that

He added that the police de-

"I need someone to get the

When Chapman applied
for the position, Adkinson
contacted the FDLE to dis-
cuss the matter, and was sat-
isfied that hiring Chapman
would be appropriate.
"I'm glad to have him," said
Adkinson. "I think the citi-
zens will be well-served."


THE MAIN. TOPIC of discussion between local officials
and DOT stalf was ihot, toget US. 331 widened tofour lanes.




Local officials



meet with DOT



about U.S. 331


Walton County Commis-
sion Chair Scott Brannon,
commissioners Kenneth
Pridgen and Ro Cuchens,
Freeport Mayor .Mickey
Marse, and DeFuniak
Springs City Manager Kim
Presnell met last Thursday
in Tallahassee with Florida's
newly-appointed Secretary of
Transportation. Denver
Stutler, to discuss U.S. 331
issues. Also attending were
Walton County Administra-
tor Ronnie Bell and David
Hallman, director of Walton
County Legal Senrices.
Four-laning of US 331 has
been advocated by Walton
County officials since the
1970s, and the explosive
growth in the county now
makes it the greatest prior-
ity in local legislative lobby-
ing and infrastructure im-
provement efforts.
Walton has the dubious dis-
tinction of having the second
longest evacuation time in
the state to move residents
and guests to safety ahead of
hurricanes. Only the Florida
Keys, with its 100-mile tran-
sit across numerous islands
and bridges, is longer. Emer-
gency response officials state
that it takes more than thirty
hours to safely evacuate the
areas of Walton County that
are south of the
Choctawhatchee Bay, and
the low-lying areas between
the bay and S.R. 20.


Various segments of U.S.
331. south of Interstate 10,
are going through the pro-
cess to be four-laned, and a
bypass around Freeport is
now under construction. The
main obstacle to a smooth
north-south evacuation route
appears to be the two-lane
Clyde B. Wells Bridge across
the Choctawhatchee Bay.
With costs nearing half bil-
lion dollars to construct a sec-
ond bridge to current stan-
dards, county and city offi-
cials are working hard with
state and federal transporta-
tion agencies to come up with
a solution to provide a safe
evacuation route.
Secretary Stutler, together
with Assistant Secretary of
Finance and Administration
Lowell Clary and Tommy
Barfield from the Florida De-
partment of Transportation
IDOTi District III office in
Chipley, agreed to review in-
formation from their project,
development and environ-
ment study to determine if
direction was provided from
environmental officials re-
lated to adding lanes on U.S.
331 across the Bay. Environ-
mental issues can drive
much of the high cost of four-
laning or constructing an-
other bridge across the Bay.
Clary, a DeFuniak Springs
native, stated during the

Magnolia Cemetery still of grave concern to citizens


EARL MATHEWS said he was forced to have a family
friend moved out of his family plat so that his mother could
be laid to rest here, despite having plenty of physical space
already available.


By RONKELLEY

In a December issue of the
DeFuniak Herald, we ran a
story regarding the policies
and procedures governing
the DeFuniak Springs Cem-
etery, adopted in 1993..
Since that time, the Her-
ald has received numerous
calls, letters and personal
visits from citizens who had
their own tales to tell, illus-
trating what they perceived
as unfair and inconsistent
treatment by the city regard-
ing the final resting place of
their family members..
Among those, Realtor Earl
Mathews told the Herald
that his family's lot had been
purchased in the 1920s by his
grandfather, with the under-
standing that it could hold 10


individual plots. However, he
said that when it came time
to bury his mother next to his
father, city officials told him
that only eight plots would be
allowed in the family lot.
"We had a friend of the
family who died years ago
and had no place to be bur-
ied and we didn't want her
buried in Potter's Field, so we
put her here," he said. "We
didn't see a problem, since we
obviously have space for two
more. My mother was laying
in the funeral home when we
were told she couldn't be bur-
ied next to my father."
Mathews said they family
was forced to have the friend
disinterred and moved some-
where else so that his par-
ents could be laid to rest to-
gether, despite the fact that


there is still space for two
more individual plots.
Although city officials in-
sist that the 1993 ordinance
pertains to every gravesite in
every part of the cemetery,
starting at the time the ordi-
nance was passed, a tour of
the cemetery revealed nu-
merous discrepancies.
The Herald asked for a
copy of the complete ordi-
nance regarding the cem-
etery and its board of trust-
ees (Ordinance 607). The
only reference to the allow-
able number of individual
plots v within a lot is in section
6-1.5 under "Definitions."
Article (2) reads, "'Lot' shall
mean an individual burial
plot or group of contiguous
burial plots not to exceed
twelve."


Of the nine pages of rules
regarding the cemetery and
its operation sent to the Her-
ald, that one section contains
the only reference regarding
the number of burial plots
allowed within a family lot.
Throughout the cemetery,
there are gravesitesthat ap-
pear to be at odds with the
cemetery ordinance. There
are many monuments and
sites that are decorated with
crosses, small and large figu-
rines of Christ, angels and
religious symbols, personal
mementos, flags, live plants
and more.
With so many inconsisten-
cies, the city will have a dif-
ficult task bringing all plots
into compliance with the or-

proof to the contrary.
So, who are you going to trust- Diebold or the group that
those same political shepherds and their faithful sheep like
to call the "liberal media?"
I guess I have to cast my vote for the media.
But, hey, who's counting?


EDITOR'S COMMENT:


The shepherds and the sheep


By RON KELLEY

Here's a free piece of advice to election officials and their
staff fail to guarantee American's right to vote and to have
those votes accurately counted at your own peril.
Recently, I received a report from the Orlando Sun-Senti-
nel that announced that Volusia County had joined Leon
County in dumping Diebold, Inc., the company that built
many of the new voting machines used throughout the na-
tion. Leon County Supervisor of Elections Ion Sancho re-
portedl\ said he will never again use Diebold in an election
because of a demonstration that took place in Leon County.
In the demonlws rat ion. Diebold voting machines were easily
and iniistput:h ly hacked.
Finnish security expert Harri Hursti demonstrated that
PliebotL made misrepresentations: to states across the na-
tion when Diebold claimed votes could not be changed on
the "mnmeory card" (the credit-card-sized ballot box used by
cuiup'ti-ri. ed voting machines).
According to reports in the Tallahassee Democrat, a test
election was run in Leon County with a total of eight bal-
lots. Six ballots voted "no" on a ballot question. At the be-
ginning of the test election, the memory card programmed
by Harri Hursti was inserted into an Optical Scan Diebold
voting machine. A "zero report" indicated no hidden votes
on the memory card. In truth, Hursti had already loaded
the memory card with plus and minus votes. Correct re-
sults should have been: Yes: two votes, No: six votes. How-
ever, the results read: Yes: seven, No: one.
Then the results were uploaded from the optical scan vot-
ing machine into the GEMS central tabulator, which Diebold'
insisted was foolproof protection against memory card hack-
ing. Unfortunately, the GEMS central tabulator failed to


Editor,
United Way of Okaloosa and Walton Counties says thank
you to the hometown community for the wonderful response
to the "Coats for Children at Christmas" program. We ap-
preciate all our local banks and businesses that helped make
this effort a great success by placing, boxes in their loca-
tions to be used as a drop-off point.
Bangkok Cleaners has cleaned and distributed over 2,290
coats since the program began November. The United Way
and community at large have the greatest appreciation for
the many hours Mr. Richard Helton and his staff has spent
not only cleaning, but also distributing these coats to the
participating agencies throughout the county.
The United Way reports that.there have also been nu-
merous donations by kindhearted citizens ofbrandnew coats
for children of various ages,, Boys and girls from Mrs.
Allmond's fifth grade class at Plew Elementary collected
money to purchase three new coats for the "Coats for chil-
dren at Christmas."
Remember: Sav6 those coats you have outgrown for the
2006 Coats for Children at Christmas. It will be here before
we know it.

Editor,
A state governor is only a public servant. He should de-
liver what taxpayers want for their tax dollars. Many Florida
people seem to want to keep tourism as our leading indus-
try. This being the case, I'd get the bullet train rolling, The
train should be a boon to tourism.
I oppose any drilling for oil off our state's coasts. Florida
doesn't choose to become a Louisiana or Texas.
I'd also spend more research money on eradicating red tide.
We're surrounded by water, a healthy marine life is essen-
tial.

notice that the voting machines had been hacked.
The 'Hursti Hack' does requires a moderate level of inside
access, but it is accomplished without.the hacker being given
a password and requires little more than the same level of
access given thousands of poll workers across the America.
What makes it so insidious is that it changes votes in a
one-step process that will not be detected in any normal
canvassing procedure. It requires only one credit-card sized
memory card and any individual with access to the memory
cards can do it. It also requires a small, fairly cheap piece of
equipment, which can be purchased off the Internet.
Diebold. still insists that, despite Hursti's demonstration,
changing votes on its memory cards is impossible and many
state and federal officials continue to defend them, despite


Editor,
Due to changes that were recently implemented at the
Magnolia Cemetery, there has been some misunderstand-
ings of what can and cannot.be done in the cemetery.
As a concerned citizen and a recently bereaved parent who
has a child in the Magnolia Cemetery, I want to be sure that
all the people who have any interest in the rules and regu-
lations of the cemetery, or who have a plot or a loved one
there, know that there will be a meeting of the cemetery
board at the DeFuniak Springs City Hall on January 17 at
6 p.m. This meeting will be open to the public, and anyone
who cares to speak will have an opportunity to do so, per
statement during City Council meeting Monday, January
9.
If you feel the need to know what is going on at the final
resting place of your loved ones, or the plot where you in-
tend to be placed when you have passed on, then please find
the time to attend this meeting and let the powers that be
in DeFuniak Springs know what your wishes are on this
matter.

Dear Editor,

It is no exaggeration to say that video games can help
train people to kill. Ask the people we trust most, the United
States military. The military succeeds at the difficult task,.
of getting people to overcome their natural barriers'to 6'co6
mitting unthinkable acts of violence. They use video games
to train our servicemen and women for the rigors of combat.
The same games for children reward cop-killing, auto theft,
and drug dealing. An underage child should not have the
unilateral discretion to walk into a store and purchase such
a product. This is common sense.
As regional director for the Parents Television Council, I
regularly speak to parents who want all the help they can
Sget to protect their children. Many have trouble keeping up
with what is in the latest games or which shows and movies
that should not be viewed by their children. They want help
to keep these games out of their kids'. hands.
Currently, a ten-year-old could purchase a mature (M-
rated) or adult only (AO-rated) video game. There are vol-
untary guidelines that,tell retailers not to sell these prod-
ucts to children, but they have been a failure due to their
voluntary nature. The new law (SB492) proposed by Sen.
Alex Diaz would basically take those guidelines and make
them law. Despite the failure of their voluntary guidelines,
the multi-billion dollar video game industry is fighting this
legislation as they did (unsuccessfully) in Illinois, Michigan
and California.
The evidence is conclusive: Countless independent stud-
ies confirm that repeated exposure to graphically sexual,
violent and profanity-laced video games has a harmful and
long term affect on children.
Most recently, researchers at Michigan State University
used functional magnetic resonance imaging technology to
observe which areas of the brain are stimulated when a sub-
ject plays violent video games. Researchers concluded,
"there is a causal link between playing the first-person shoot-
ing game in our experiment and brain-activity pattern that
are considered as characteristic for aggressive cognitions
and affects...Violent video games frequently have been criti-
cized for enhancing aggressive reactions such as aggressive
cognitions, aggressive affects or aggressive behavior. On a
neurobiological level we have shown the link exists."
If these games are marketed to and manufactured for
adults as the industry insists, then their sale to minors
should be restricted. This solution protects our children
without interfering with the rights of adults. We place simi-
lar restrictions on the sale of firearms, tobacco, alcohol and
pornography. This is no different.
Video game retailers have failed to police themselves. A
year ago, the Parents Television Council conducted a secret
shopper in several cities across the country and found that
more than 50 percent of stores were willing to sell M-rated
video games to children under 16 years of age without ask-
ing for identification. Law enforcement in Michigan found
about half of the stores they investigated sold adult rated
games to minors without asking for ID. In New York City, a
sting found 88 percent of stores selling M-rated games to
minors. The Parents Television Council also polled parents
and found that 40 percent were unaware that there are no
legal restrictions preventing children from obtaining these
games.
The children of Florida are being bombarded with sexual
and violent images-through video games. The more than
67,000 members of the Parents Television Council in Florida
are calling for the passage of SB 492 to give parents an-
other tool to protect their children from such harmful
influences. Florida must follow the lead of Illinois, Michi-
gan and California and show that we care about our chil-
dren as much as they do theirs. Parents should contact their
legislators about this bill to urge a quick passage. Remember
that our children are watching!
Matt Butler
Florida regional director,
Parents Television Council


CORRECTION

In the article "Car lot planned for 9th Street" (12/15), we
incorrectly stated that DeFuniak Springs City Councilman
Mark Anderson had voted against the variance request. He
voted in favor of the variance. The Herald regrets any in-
convenience this may have caused.

cies who are part of the plan-
ning process insist that a new
bridge be constructed shore
to shore, rather than short-
ening the span with a cause-
way as the present bridge has
been built.
Secretary Stutler agreed
i. ith Walton o' licilr th.lt c il
pending BRAC expansions at
Eglin v.ill affect the I'S. ;.:l
corridor, and DOT will work
with federal officials to see if
funding can be obtained
through BRAC-related ap-
propriations sources.
DOT also agreed to deter-
mine, from an engineering
and structural standpoint, if
the existing bridge can be
widened to accommodate
four lanes on a temporary or
permanent basis. It may be
feasible to widen the driving
surface of the existing bridge
to accommodate four traffic
lanes, although this may re-
quire a slower speed limit
across the bridge.
Related to the roadway as
a whole, DOT officials agreed
to evaluate the traffic levels
in the U.S. 331 corridor from
the Alabama line to U.S. 98,
with special attention at the
Alabama/Florida state line
and at the intersections of
U.S. 331 and U.S. 90. DeFu-
niak Springs City Manager
Kim Presnell noted the
bottleneck that exists at the
intersections of U.S. 331 at
U.S. 90, citing a number of
recent accidents in that area.
Stutler agreed to consider the
feasibility of a bypass for U.S.
331 from west U.S. 90, by the
DeFuniak Springs airport, to

Narcotics Investigators
from the Walton County
Sheriff's Office executed a
search warrant near New
Harmony January 9, that re-
sulted in one arrest and the
seizure of an active
methamphetamine lab.
Investigators executed a
search warrant at 1292 Sex-
ton Road, DeFuniak Springs,
the residence of Scotty Petty,
white male, age 37. The
search warrant was the re-
sult of an ongoing investiga
tion during which a con-
trolled buy ofmarijuana was
made from Petty.
On arrival at the residence
the investigators found Petty
engaged in "cooking"
methamphetamine.


and chemicals used in the

victed felon, was found to be
inpossessin of several fire-


arms, including a short bar-
rel rifle.

charges of trafficking in
methamphetamine, posses-
sion of listed chemicals, felon
in possession of a firearm,
possession of a short-barrel
rifle, possession of drug para-
phernalia. Petty was also

south of I-10. This would not
entail a full project environ-
ment and evaluation study,
but would be a long-term fol-
low up item that will be
needed as Walton's growth
moves northward.
Transportation officials
also agreed to review the pos-
sibility of some limited pass-
ing lanes in the U.S. 331 cor-
ridor both north and south of
U.S. 90 as interim relief for
traffic congestion along the
corridor.
Walton officials acknowl-
edged with Stutler that use
of local funding is a reality in
current roadway building
and improvement. This mes-
sage has been relayed to fed-
eral officials as well through
county lobbying contacts
with congressional delega-
tions.
Local governments are in-
creasingly faced with provid-
ing some local funding to
move projects forward on
state and federal highways.
Regional agreement of priori-
ties through the Okaloosa-
Walton Transportation Plan-
ning Organization is also re-
quired to get state projects
approved and funded. The
Okaloosa-Walton TPO has
made the four-laning of U.S.
331 a high priority. This is a
significant step, but an in-
creased level of local funding
will also be needed.
The option of tolling the
U.S. 331 Bay Bridge or at
another logical location to
provide some of the funds
needed for a bridge may be
evaluated using traffic count
data. One option would con-
sider tolling out of state traf-
fic at one level and in-state
traffic at a much lower level.
This is accomplished chiefly
using SunPass transponders


already used by many Wal-
ton residents to transit the
Mid-Bay Bridge between
Niceville and Destin. The
SunPass transponders actu-
ally work on virtually all toll
roads and bridges in the state
of Florida.
Commissioners were in-
formed that tax increment or
general property tax growth
might be considered as an
option for partial funding for
four-laning the U.S. 331
bridge or other improve-
ments in the U.S. 331 corri-
dor.
Freeport Mayor Mickey
Marse and Commissioner Ro
Cuchens stated that some
property owners along the
new bypass have indicated
they are willing to help pay
for four-laning of the Free-
port bypass now. The road
now under construction is
being built as a two-laned
segment, although right of
way was obtained by the
state for a four-lane road for
future growth. DOT officials
readily agreed that they
would consider use of private
funding sources if a genuine
proposal were brought for-
ward to them.

County Administrator
Ronnie Bell said that the
meeting wras one of the best
meetings that Walton County
has had with DOT officials
concerning the four-laning of
U.S. 331. Several ideas and
issues were discussed to pro-
vide DOT and Walton County
with some valuable informa-
tion concerning U.S. 331.
Walton County Commission-
ers will continue to press for
much needed improvementof
the entire U.S. 331 corridor
to meet the needs of Walton
County.

(DOH) recognizes cervical health awareness month


The Florida Department
of Health (DOH) and the
American Cancer Society
combine efforts to raise
awareness about cervical
health throughout the month
of January.
Unscreened women fall in
several categories including
the uninsured, ethnic minori-
ties and the poor, particularly
those in rural areas. Regular
check-ups may reduce the
risk of cervical cancer later


in life since it is highly cur-
able if caught early.
"Cervical Health Aware-
ness Month is not simply
about statistics. It is about
encouraging women to be re-
sponsible for their health and
to visit their doctors regu-
larly," said DOH Secretary
M. Rony Francois, M.D.,
M.S.P.H., Ph.D. "We are
proud to have initiatives such
as the Department's Florida
Breast and Cervical Cancer


Program that helps older, un-
insured, or poor women
maintain cervical health. By
helping remove these barri-
ers, we offer assistance that
leads to healthier, happier
lives."
Any woman who has a cer-
vix can get cervical cancer,
especially if she or her sexual
partner has had multiple sex
partners.
Most often, cervical cancer


develops in women age 40 or
older.
Abnormal cells in the cer-
vix and cervical cancer don't
always cause symptoms, es-
pecially at first. That's why
getting tested for cervical
cancer is important, even if
there are no symptoms.
When it is found early and
treated, cervical cancer is
highly curable.
Most deaths from cervical
cancer could be avoided if

arrested


in home


invasion


robbery

By BRUCE COLLIER
The Okaloosa County
Sheriff's Office (OCSO) ar-
rested a second suspect in
connection with a home inva-
sion armed robbery that took
place in Fort Walton Beach
on December 13.
Deputies arrested Bernard
Riley Jr., 24, on charges of
being an armed principal to
home invasion robbery, prin-
cipal to aggravated assault,
and principal to grand theft.
Last. month, OCSO depu-
ties arrested William George
Smolar, 26, in connection
with the same incident, and
are seeking a third suspect as
well.
The robbery is alleged to
have taken place on Decem-
ber 13 at 792-D Navy Street
in Fort Walton Beach.
According to investigators,
Riley reportedly drove
Smolar and a third person to
the address.
Smolar identified a man
named "Bernard" as having
planned the crime, and as
having supplied a .22 caliber
pistol used in the robbery.
The victim of the alleged
robbery, Angela Adkins, told
investigators that she knew
a Bernard Riley, and identi-
fied him in a photo lineup.
Smolar likewise identified
Riley from a photo lineup.
A third suspect has been
described as a "light-skinned
black male with' short
dreadlocks," between 5 feet
10 inches and 6 feet 2 inches
in height.
Persons with information
about this suspect may con-
tact Emerald Coast Crime
Stoppers at S50-863-8477, or
the OCSO Criminal Investi-
gations Division at 850-609-
2000.

21 convictions


WC State Attorney's

office release 2005

meth trafficking figures


By BRUCE COLLIER
The First Judicial Circuit
State Attorney's office in
Walton County has issued
the 2005 figures on prosecu-
tion of methamphetamine
(meth) trafficking.
According to Assistant
State Attorney J. Ryan Love,
the State Attorney obtained
21 convictions on meth traf-
ficking charges in Walton
County in 2005.
Love credited the "exten-
sive and aggressive investi-
gations" made by the Walton
County Sheriff's Office
(WCSO) and the Florida De-
partment of Law Enforce-
ment (FDLE)
Love also praised the work
of former Assistant State At-
torney Tiffany Sims, who left
the State Attorney's office in
July of 2005.
Sims, now an assistant
United States attorney, pros-
ecuted five of the eight jury
trials ofmeth traffickers held
in Walton County in 2005.
Love prosecuted the other
three.
Sims and Love were spe-
cially assigned to prosecute
meth trafficking cases.
Of the 21 convictions, 19
of the sentences handed
down added up to 207 years.
Individually, the sentences
ranged from three to 25 years
in prison.
As of the first week in
January, the State'Attorney
has 17 meth trafficking cases
pending in Walton County.
Florida statutes prescribe
mandatory minimum penal-
ties for trafficking in meth-
amphetamine. Their range is
determined by the amount of
meth involved in the charges.
The mandatory minimum
for trafficking in at least 14


grams, but less than 28
grams, is three years in
prison and a $50,000 fune.
For 28 grams but less than
200 grams, the minimum is
seven years and a $100,000
fine.
For 200 or more grams, the
minimum is 15 years and a
$200,000 fine.
In Florida, trafficking is de-
fined as knowing possession,
sale, purchase, delivery, or
bringing into the state, or
knowing actual or construc-
tive possession of 14 grams
or more of methamphetamine.


For the Week ended January
5,2006
At the Florida Livestock Auc-
tions, receipts totaled 6,218 com-
pared to last week no sales, and
7,624 a year ago. According to the
Florida Federal-State Livestock

to last week, no, trends due to no

Two spots to visit in Pensacola


By BRUCE COLLIER
In the wake of last season's hurricanes, some Gulf Coast
day-trippers are not proceeding much farther west than
Pensacola.
Though Mississippi and New Orleans are making progress
toward tourist business as usual, here are two possibilities
for a day in Pensacola.
If one shops, Pensacola offers a number of malls, outlets,
and specialty stores. We went to a few, then had lunch at a
steak restaurant.
The main attraction of the day was the Pensacola Museum
of Art (PMA), located at 407 South Jefferson Street.
If you know Pensacola, you know that the museum is near
the Pensacola Little Theatre, the T.T. Wentworth Museum,
Seville Quarter, and a number of galleries and upscale eat-
ing establishments.
The PMA is located in the former Jefferson Street City
Jail. Sevi-ral of the interior diors are actually barred grids.
A guide at the admission desk clarified that the Pensacola
Little Theatre, across the street, is housed in the former county
jail.
"The cafe [at the theatre] is where they. used to hang
people," he added.
The PMA building is.Spanish Revival style, and was con-
structed in 1908. Two floors house both large and small
galleries.
The two principal exhibits now\ on display are a collection
of ceramic works by Spanish artist Pablo Picasso, and a dis-
play titled "Trompe L'Oeil. The Art of Illusion."
Trompe L'Oel or "to fool the eye." is an ancient art form,
dating as far back as the Roman Empire.
Trompe L'Oeil painters seek to create an illusion of di-
mension, using attention to detail, shadow, and light, and
frequently depicting commonplace, still-life objects.
The PhLA Trompe L'Oeil exhibit features about 65 works,
the oldest dated 1984. Among the artists whose work is dis-
played are Gary T. Erbe. Gregory West, Donald Clapper.
Gayle Tate, Michael Theise, Michael Gallarda, and Debra
Teare.


Two of the more notable works are Erbe's Lipsync. show-
ing a ukelele and record turntable, and Clapper's HeminSgw'ay
- Which Stamp is Real"
The latter shows two postage stamps of the writer, one
painted on, one glued on. It is impossible to tell the differ-
ence except by touching, which is prohibited.
The other exhibit, the Picasso ceramics, is taken from the
Bernie Bercuson Collection, housed at the Museum ofArt in
Fort Lauderdale.
Because Picasso kept for himselfnearly all of the approxi-
mately 3500 ceramic pieces he created, many people are not
aware of his interest in this art form. This exhibit offers a
selection of 50 works, including pitchers, plaques, tiles, and
vases.
The pieces, displayed in glass cases, combine painting and
sculpting, and show both Greek and Pre-Columbian artistic
influences.
Among the more striking works is Grande Oiseaiu Large
Bird i. a vase made in 1953, bearing the artist's distinctive
signat ure.
The Trompe L'Oeil exhibit will be on display through Janu-
ary 21. The Picasso exhibit will remain through February
18.
From the museum of art, we passed on to a sort of mu-
seum of food. Unlike P/LA, Four Winds International Food
Market encourages touching, sniffing, and eating.
Four Winds is located at 6895 North 9th Avenue, in the
Belvedere Park Plaza. It's not the biggest store you'll ever
visit, but it may be among the most crammed.
Every available inch of wall, floor, and shelfspace is filled
wiith food, drink, spices, and culinary odds and ends. One
wall contains barrels of bulk coffee and dried beans. There
are cold storage units for meat, cheese, beverages, and pre-
pared entrees.
Within ten minutes after we entered the aromatic pre-
mises, w'e were offered samples of cheese, cheese spread,
and pasta salad. Also available for trying out are olives and
sips of wine.
Sandwiches and full meals can be purchased at the deli,

chosen exhibits.

Museum of Art.


and there's a large bread bin located near
the olives, in case you plan to make your
own sandwich at home.
In business since 1981, Four Winds offers
foods from Europe, Asia, India, and the Near
and Far East. There's a good selection of
spices, sausages, cheese and candy, as well
as United Kingdom specialty foods like
banger sausages, Irish bacon, Scottish
salmon, and whatever it is the Welsh eat.
One can also find Belgian ale, Indian chut-
ney, Colombian chocolate, and Jamaican
jerk sauce. The dried fruit is next to the cold
cuts, and you have to be careful not to trip
over the cases of wine or canned olive oil.
Four Winds has a friendly staff, and
clearly enjoys a regular clientele, most of
whom know better than to shop hungry.
"We ate before we came here," said one
woman to the owner, at the cash register.


"That's no good," he smiled, looking over her
small basket of purchases.
The above stops, along with a little shop-.
ping, lunch and an end-of-the-day visit to a
bookstore, took up about eight hours, plus
driving time.
By most standards, it was a modest outing.
One tank of gas was more than adequate, and
there were no hotel bijjg. It's a good idea to
bring along a cooler, ij case you shop at Four
Winds before you have lunch.
The Pensacola Museum ofArt is open Tues-
day through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.,
and on the weekend from 12 to 5 p.m. The
telephone number is 850-432-6247.
Four Winds International Food Market is
open Monday through Saturday from 9:30
a.m. to 8:30 p.m., and Sunday from 12:30 p.m.
to 6 p.m. The telephone number is 850-477-
2808.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JANUARY 12, 2006


Celebrated

author

to speak in

DeFuniak

Springs

By RONKELLEY
To some, the name Josh
McDowell is not readily
known. However, to many
Christians across the nation,
Josh McDowell is a favorite
author, whose books have
sold 10 million copies domes-
tically, and a radio personal-
ity, heard on over 400 sta-
tions in 47 states and in other
countries around the world.
McDowell said he started
out as a professed agnostic
with a mission to discredit
Christianity whenever and
wherever he could. However,
during his crusade to dispel
the resurrection of Christ as
a myth, McDowell says he
discovered compelling his-
torical evidence for the reli-
ability of the Christian faith.
Following his conversion
from Doubting Thomas to a
confirmed believer,
McDowell graduated from
Wheaton College and then
entered the Talbot Theologi-
cal Seminary, where he
graduated Magna Cum
Laude with a master of divin-
ity degree.
In 1964, he became a trav-
eling representative of Cam-
pus Crusade for Christ Inter-
national and continues to
have a close affiliation with
that.organization and its
founder, Bill Bright.
Today McDowell oversees
the Josh McDowell Minis-
tries in Richardson, TX. Josh
and wife, Dotty, have four
children and live in Dallas,
Texas.
To date, he has written
more than 77-books andhas
led neal-l. V7,000 -.lunters ,
on special mission trips to the
former Soviet Union to dis-
tribute goods and the gospel
to orphanages, hospitals,
prisons and underprivileged
communities.
McDowell says young
people are growing up with
distorted ideas about God.
"It's not that families and
churches haven't taught
their young people right from
wrong, it's that our young
people have interpreted
those truths through a dis-
torted belief system it's a
lack of a solid biblical belief
system."
McDowell is coming to De-
Funiak Springs to talk about
why belief matters and will
be appearing at the First
Baptist Church on 11th
Street on Monday, Jan. 16,
from 6 9 p.m. The event is
free to the public.

Florida teams go 1-2 in bowl season


By CHUCK HINSON
For the first time since it
was put into use,'the BCS
system finally worked out
and matched the undisputed
No. 1 and No. 2 teams to-
gether in the Rose Bowl.
The No. 2 Texas' shocker
over the No. 1 USC Trojans
will have sports enthusiast
talking for years to come.
Vince Young led the
Longhorn's to their first vic-
tory in 36 years and ended
their 34-game winning
streak with a Texas 41-38
victory. The two teams just
flip-flopped in the polls for
the final vote.
It was a nerve-racking,
highly stressful football sea-
son for any Florida college
football fan this past season.
This past bowl season, things
got only more tense.
Miami and Florida State
both go down, while Florida
gets a break and keeps the
Gator Bowl victory in-state ,
despite a 17-point comeback


By PATRICK CASEY
Walton's boys basketball
team won a pair of games in
less than 24 hours as they
defeated Northview and
Graceville in their only two
games of the week.
Walton downed Northview
56-45 to claim their second
district win of the season.
The Braves shook off a cold
shooting night to garner the
road victory. On Saturday,
Walton took part in the Sub-
way Shootout in Marianna as
the Braves held off Graceville
64-59.
Ashton Campbell led the
Braves against Graceville as


from Iowa State in the fourth
quarter.
Florida's Chris Leak threw
for 227 yards and led the
Gator's scoring drive and a
31-24 victory over the Iowa
Hawkeyes. The victory gave
Urban Meyer matching
bragging rights with Ray
Graves and Steve Spurrier
for the most wins in their
first season at Florida.
Florida finished the season
ranked No; 16 and with a
record of 9-3.
Miami's Larry Coker has
seen bad years and slow
starts, but never a defeat so
great as the one they suffered
against LSU.
It meant only one thing.
It's time to roll some heads
and that is exactly what
Coker did.
After the Peach Bowl con-
cluded, a fight broke out with
Miami and LSU playersre-
quiring the Georgia State
Patrol and the Fulton
County Sheriffs depart-


he scored 22 points and made
a key steal in the final sec-
onds of the game to put the
victory on ice. J. Leonard
added 14 points and grabbed
several rebounds to help Wal-
ton improve to 13-4.
Jeremy Dunbar scored 13
points to add to the Braves
attack as Walton took advan-
tage of poor 3-point shooting
by the Tigers to build a 32-
20 halftime lead. Walton lost
Daryl McGhee and Kenny
Walker in the fourth quarter
as they both fouled out, but
the team made enough free
throws down the stretch to
record the victory.


ment.
LSU piled up 468 yards
total, the most allowed by
Miami this season. On the
defense, the Tigers held the
Canes to just 153 yards and
six first downs.
Miami was only to round
up three points on a field goal
and LSU was willing to finish
the game and leave Miami
with a little dignity. It was
the largest margin that LSU
had ever won a bowl game.
No word on coaches re-
placements for the Hurri-
canes team, but it was re-
ported that four were let go
the morning after the Peach
Bowl in Atlanta.
Miami finishes their sea-
son at 9-3 and ends the year
ranked at No. 17.
And the last of the Florida
teams that played in a bowl
are the Florida State Semi-
noles. They fell to Penn State
and Joe Pa's Nittany Lions in
triple overtime, 26-23.
After a topsy-turby season
with injuries, players in the

Dark sand allowed to


stay on Seagrove Beach I


By DOTTY NIST
Five months ago, Walton
County raised the standards
for sand to be placed on the
beach in connection with
Post-Hurricane Dennis
emergency permits. However
darker sand brought onto
one area of Seagrove Beach
after the change is being al-
lowed to stay.
Kevin Hargett, Walton
County code enforcement co-
ordinator, said that under
normal circumstances, since
Aug. 1, the county has re-
quired any sand brought onto
the beach in connection with
the emergency permits to
meet the standard of 7.2 on
the Munsell soil color chart.
He added that the sand must
be capped with three feet of
8.1 Munsell sand.
Lighter sands correspond
with higher Mlunsell chart
values.
A large amount of sand
brought onto the Seagrove


Beach for a restoration
project in front of five adja-
cent lots on Montgomery
Street attracted attention
due to its dark color, result-
ing in a code enforcement in-
vestigation in early Novem-
ber. In connection with the
investigation, Walton County
engineering determined that
the sand was a 5.3 on the
Munsell chart. A stop-work
order was placed on the res-
toration project on Nov. 8.

However, after the prop-
erty owners undertaking the
project provided evidence to

ment that they had con-
tracted for the work and pur-
chased their sand prior to the
Aug. 1 sand standardchange,
the stop-work order was
lifted.
Any additional sand
brought in for the project was
required to meet the 6.2
Munsell standard at a mini-


mum.
According to documenta-
tion in connection with the
emergency permit for the
restoration work, the Mont-
gomery Street project will
consist of several phases and
will include the installation
of 10 Protech Tube coastal
armoring devices. The final
phase is to include a top cover
of white sand.
County planning has di-
rected that the top sand layer
is to meet the 8.1 Munsell
standard and to be three feet
in depth.
A state permit will be re-
quired in order for the
armoring devices to remain
in place permanently. None
has been issued to date.

Hargett said this restora-
tion project is the only in-
stancehe is aware ofinwhich
an exception has been made
to the new sand standard set
by the county on Aug. 1.

Citizens support


beach
By DOTTYNIST
When more than 85 com-
munity members gathered to
hear about possible help for
erosion on Walton County's
central and eastern beaches,
the question on almost
everyone's lips was "how
soon?"
The answer provided by
Beach Management Director
Brad Pickel at the Jan. 9 pub-
lic'workshop was "not before
November."
"That would be the earli-
est," he commented.
In addition, before a project
could happen, there would be
a number of choices to be
considered by the community
and by county government,
Pickel said. Undertaking a
large-scale beach nourish-
ment project on the central
and eastern beaches is "not
a decision to be taken lightly,"
he cautioned.
Much work that will pro-
vide a framework for decision
making has been underway
for some time. Studies evalu-
ating erosion, analyzing risks
to beachfront structures and
infrastructure, and deter-
mining the feasibility of res-
toration measures along the
whole of the county coastline

DISHWASHER

WATER SAVING TIPS


TRY TO RUN THE DISHWASHER ONLY
WHEN IT IS FULL OF DISHES. RUNNING
A FULL LOAD OF DISHES SHOULD SAVE
WATER OVER WASHING THE SAME
DISHES BY HAND. A TYPICAL
DISHWASHER USES BETWEEN 8 AND 15
GALLONS PER LOAD OF DISHES WITH A
AVERAGE OF ABOUT 9.3 GALLONS PER
LOAD.

MANY NEWER DISHWASHERS REQUIRE
LITTLE OR NO ADVANCE RINSING OF
DISHES. SOME MANUFACTURERS NOW
OFFER HIGH-EFFICIENCY
DISHWASHER MODELS. THESE
DISHWASHERS USE LESS WATER AND
ENERGY. A HIGH-EFFICIENCY
DISHWASHER CAN WASH A LOAD OF
DISHES USING 5 TO 7 GALLONS OF
WATER.

A FAMILY THAT REPLACES A
12-GALLON PER LOAD MACHINE WITH
A 6-GALLON PER LOAD MACHINE AND
RUNS THEIR DISHWASHER 4 TIMES PER
WEEK WILL SAVE ABOUT 1.250
GALLONS OF WATER PER YEAR.

Sunday afternoon as the line of queens of all varieties, shapes
and sizes entered the beachside residence. What an imagi-

Sweet Potato Queen, Rodeo Queens, Mardi Gras Queens,
Queens of the Night, Queen of Tigers, Queen of Nomads,
Queen of Thailand, Queen of Denial, Queen of Grayton

Seaside celebrates


Martin Luther King


For the past 13 years, dur-
ing the month of January, the
town of Seaside has wel-
comed talented artists from
across the United States and
Europe. This year is no ex-
ception. The 14th annual
Escape to Create artists' resi-
dency program opens during
Martin Luther King weekend
with programs that include
song, short-stories and slide
shows. Art enthusiasts and
followers alike should not
miss this much-anticipated
weekend.
On Friday, Jan.13, at 7
p.m., visual artists Shea Gor-
don and Leslie Iwai will
present slide shows and in-
formal.commentary about
their art and artistic pro-
cesses. Shea is a performance
artist. The Kansas City resi-
dent uses a variety of medi-
ums-paint, metal, salt crys-
tals, seeds, photography,
mud and plastic-to create
interactive objects.
In Seaside, she is produc-
ing a flotilla of vessels to be
launched in the Gulf of
Mexico and documented on
videotape.
Leslie Iwai is an emerging
artist who comes to Seaside
after five months in Sierra
Leone, where she was an aide
to children victimized by civil
war. During the residency,
Iwai is creating mixed media
images that incorporate
drawings by the African chil-
dren and pieces of child-sized
clothing made from para-
chute material. Iwai lives in
Omaha, NE where she is the
art director at the Hope Cen-
ter for Kids.
On Saturday, Jan. 14 at 7
p.m., fiction writer, Sohrab
Homi Fracis, will give a read-
ing and sirngecr-sungwrite
Miry BOie will perform her
music on keyboard and gui-
tar. Sohrab's first collection of
short stories, Ticket to Minto,
was published by the presti-
gious University of Iowa
Press and won the 2001 Iowa
Short Fiction Award. In writ-
ing about the interface be-


tween North American and
South Asian cultures, Fracis
explores the difficulties and
challenges of life as an Indian
immigrant in the United
States.
In Seaside, Fracis is work-
ing on a novel about an In-
dian of Iranian ancestry who
arrives inAmerica in 1981 on
the heels of the Iranian hos-
tage crisis. He resides in
Jacksonville, FL.
Mary writes poetry which
she sets to her own music.
She performs her work regu-
larly in her hometown of
Duluth, MN, and also in the
New England states and
southern cities of Nashville,
TN and Raleigh, NC. This
busy artist conducts work-
shops in song writing, gives
lectures on the psychology of
creativity and self esteem,
has hosted a late night radio
show and has released sev-
eral CDs. While in Seaside,
Bue is "refueling and filling
up notebooks with new po-
etry."
These talented artists are
among nine individuals par-
ticipating in this year's Es-
cape to Create artists' resi-
dency program sponsored by
The Seaside Institute. Every
year a carefully selected
group of artists spend the
month of January in Seaside
working on an artistic
project. The residency is
multidisciplinary and can
include visual artists, writ-
ers, composers, filmmakers
and scholars.
Other 2006 Artists include:
writers Loretta Cobb and Lee
Reilly, composer Mathew
Fuerst and visual artists
Kathy Grove and Barbara
Laber. They will present pro-
grams to the community
from Jan. 26 through Jan. 28.

F22A



Raptor


The Raptor is ready to fight


Air Force officials have an-
nounced that the F-22A Rap-
tor is now ready for combat.
The 53d Wing, headquar-
tered at Eglin A.F.B., played
a significant role in reaching
the Raptor's initial opera-
tional capability.

"It was a collective effort of
this entire wing to ensure the
Raptor is ready for action,"
said Col. William Coutts, 53d
Wing commander.
The operational test wing,
which is comprised of 20 geo-
graphically-separated units
across the couritry, planned
and executed the majority of
the advanced weapon
system's open air testing and
developed the tactics, tech-
niques and procedures for
the pilots and technical order
data for the maintainers. The


53d also accomplished the F-
22A's first-ever weapon sys-
tem evaluation on subsonic
weapons employment at the
Utah Test and Tactics Range
and produced an extensive
amount of mission data and
threat data software the
guts of the aircraft.
'The F-22A fulfills a long
quest to bring fifth-genera-
tion capabilities of stealth
and precision to the war
fighter today aid 30 years
from today," said Gen.
Ronald E. Keys, Air Combat
Command commander.
The F22 Raptor first flew
in prototypeform on Septem-
ber 7, 1997. It's destined as a
replacement for the F15
Eagle as the new century
unfolds.
The F22 will herald the
next generation of fighters,


combining stealth capability
in an airframe capable of
high performance. Raptors
use a great deal of titanium.
alloy and plastics in their
construction. ...,. ,

Power is provided by two
Pratt & Whitney turbotfans
as is conimnon fo)r most US
fighters. On the F-22, they
are capable of thrust vector-
ing for increased maneuver-
ability

The F-22 is a similar size
to the F15 Eagle it's intended
to replace. Length is just over
62 feet, while wingspan is
44.5 feet. Published maxi-
mum speed is mach 1.8
which is a bit slower than the
unstealthy Eagle, though
these are still early days for
the machine.

Another suggestion from
the audience was to go to the
private sector for funding.
Another beachfront owner
indicated that he would not
be picky about sand color.
"I don't care if it's pink
polka dot or mud, we need to
get the (beach) level back up,"
he quipped.
"Let's just say we're going
to do it," urged Fort Panic
homeowner Ed Goodwin.
Notwithstanding com-
ments of this sort, Pickel
stated that in his opinion the
biggest challenge will be "to
get agreement in the commu-
nity to do the project."
"We're going to work as
quickly and efficiently as pos-
sible," he assured the gather-
ing.
The next steps in the pro-
cess will be additional sand
source investigations, an up-
date of risk analysis along
the coastline, prioritization of
project areas based on risk
analysis, quantification of
the amount of suitable sand
available for dredging, the
development of project de-
sign alternatives, and apply-
ing for permits, which can be
done in advance, according to
Pickel.
He added that he expects
to schedule a follow-up infor-
mational workshop in early
summer.
