The Freeport City Council
meeting of January 10 re-
sumed business primarily
where the last meeting of
2005 left, working with zon-
ing changes, comprehensive
plan amendments and new
developments. In a change of
pace, the council approved
nominations for its new rec-
reation committee: Rosier
Cuchens, county commis-
sioner; George Schissler, Wal-
ton County Recreation
Board; Jean Arrant, city
councilwoman; Eleanor
Turner, Town Planters Soci-
ety; James McCleod, Free-
port Little League; David

Jack Rhodes of the Hammock
Bay community. Rhodes will
schedule the first meeting
The balance ofthe meeting

second reading of the 2.65
acre St. Peters small scale

ment and its accompanying
zoning revision to change the
property from Walton County

density residential. The
council approved both
changes.
Henninger reminded the
council of the large scale
amendment sponsored by
the city and went on to report
strong interest in redevelop-
ment of down town with a
"flavor of old Freeport." A
transition area has been pro-
posed with zoning changed
from County R-3, residential,
to Freeport RC, residential
commercial. Henninger said
she hoped that the large
scale amendment would be
ready for approval by March.
The council approved the
proposal.
Henninger reported that
Kevin Logan of Freeport
Truss, on U.S. Hwy. 331
South, had applied for a per-
mit to construct a new 5,900-
square foot office building to
replace the one that has been
torn down. Henninger effu-
sively said the design will
showcase the trusses built by
the companyand will be ac-
companied by good landscap-
ing. She congratulated Logan
on the project.
A new 1,400-square foot


chiropractic clinic, with liv-
ing quarters above, will be
constructed for Dr. Laird.
This, reportedly will bring to
seven the number of doctors
soon to be practicing in Free-
port.
The River Walk planned

plan and phase one plan for
single and multiple-family
housing units were pre-
sented. Henniger commented
that the map for the project

connect this project to the
LaGrange Landing project to
its north.
The overall project details
450 single-family lots and 45
multi-family units on a total
of 178 acres. Of these, 276
units are proposed for phase
one. Due to an administra-
tive error by the city plan-
ning office, approval of this
project will be carried over to
the next regularly scheduled
council meeting.
Hammock Bay pod 8 and
pod 9 plats, part of phase
two, were presented for ac-
ceptance and were approved.
The Prospect Park develop-

a local real estate appraiser,
as her appointee to the Plan-
ning Board to replace Mitch
Block, who had to resign due
to business travel that will
take him away from Freeport
for an extended period.
Merrill's appointment was
approved by the council.
Councilman Charlie
Simmons has a draft of the

fire rescue


consolidation


plan draws


praise, fire

By BRUCE COLLIER
The Walton County Board of County Commissioners (BCC)
is moving forward on a six-year plan creating a consolidated
Walton County Fire Rescue (WCFR) organization. Reaction
to the plan has ranged from enthusiastic support to enthu-
siastic criticism.
Before consolidation, Walton County residents were served
by 11 independently functioning fire departments.
Those departments were in Argyle, Darlington/Gaskin,
DeFuniak Springs, Freeport, Glendale, Liberty, Mossy Head,
Paxton, Red Bay, Tri-Village, and United. In general, each
department operated in its own boundaries
However, the fire departments had agreements regarding
"dispatch protocols."These agreements provided for "mutual
aid response" to areas outside an independent fire
department's boundaries.
Each department had its own budget, out of which it paid
for equipment, vehicles, supplies, paid staff (if any), and in-
surance.
Some departments were volunteer-only, while others had
a mix of paid and unpaid firefighters, emergency medical
services (EMS), and administrative personnel.
The BCC hired Eddie Rivers as Fire Manager in May of
2005.,Rivers reviewed a "Walton County Master Plan," pre-
pared in August of 2003, by Government Services Group,
Inc., a Tallahassee-based consulting group.
"These people hit everything right on the head." said Riv-
ers. He then tailored a six-year plan for the county based on
the master plan.
"[The plan] gives direction," he said.
Though a number of departments favored consolidation
from the start, several did not. Rivers then drew up a con-
tract for departments that did not wish to participate in the
consolidation.
Rivers said that the biggest difference between consolida-
tion and the independent system is that "everything now is
piecemeal. It's a patchwork operation."
Two practical examples of this are in the purchase of
firetrucks and self-contained breathing apparatus.
"We've got four different manufacturers of [breathing
apparatus] in this county," because not all the departments
would agree on a single kind.
Rivers said that this prevents interchangeability of equip-
ment. As with trucks, equipment prices can sometimes be
lover when purchased in quantity.
Consolidation can also mean lower insurance prices.
"We're using the money that we saved on insurance premi-
ums this year" to pay for a five-year lease on trucks.
Another virtue of consolidation, said Rivers, is that "now
we can move the boundary lines for all of these departments
for whoever's the closest."
Under the consolidation, volunteers would be classed as
"county volunteer employee."
Rivers defines this apparently contradictory term as more
of an IRS term... because we do compensate them a little
bit."
His plan includes a provision to make small payments to
volunteers for calls, and for training and completing train-
ing programs. "It's more of a reimbursement" for fuel used
to travel to training programs.
"Operationally," said Rivers," you will see very limited
changes."
""I believe that the boundaries should be set up so the
closest truck responds, not necessarily these areas."
"These areas" refers to the boundaries currently drawn
and controlled by the independent departments. Under the
current plan, access and mutual aid are determined by the
independent fire departments.
Ideally, said Rivers, Walton County should have a combi-
nation service, "full-time people supplemented by volun-
teers."
"Our goal should be to try to get a first-response truck
that pumps water...to a scene in six minutes.We should be
able to do that 90 percent of the time in 90 percent of the
county."
Rivers expects that the number of volunteers working in
the fire departments will be "greatly reduced," adding.that
it is "beyond our control."
The reason for this is a state-instituted program under
which volunteer applicants must train for 160 hours. Vol-
unteers with full-time day jobs might find this too much of a
burden, he said.
South Walton Fire District has ino volunteers, said Rivers,
but he has no plans to recommend eliminating volunteers
under the consolidation plan.
Rivers said that in future, he hopes to see young people
getting into professional firefighting using volunteer work
as a "stepping stone."
"Almost every professional firefighter started out as a vol-
unteer," he said.
Future plans also include cross-training, in which person-
nel are trained in both firefighting and emergency medical
services (EMS).
"Eighty percent of the state of Florida is fire-based EMS,"
said Rivers.
Independent fire districts are not compelled to join in with
the WCFR plan. Notable among those opposing the move
toward consolidation is the Liberty Fire District (LFD).
In October of 2005, the LFD Board of Commissioners met


and voted to discontinue the dispatch of mutual aid responses
outside of the LFD boundaries, with the exception ofArgyle.
In a written memorandum dated October 10, 2005, LFD
president Phil A. Givens called this change "a direct result
of withholding approved funding by Walton County EOC/
BCC."
LFD Board of Commissioners Tony D. Roy Jr. character-
ized the move toward consolidation as a "hostile takeover."
Roy said that LFD had submitted a timely budget request
to BCC asking for $225,000 for FY 2005-2006. The county
approved a budget of $88,000.
According to Roy, "one week prior to budget implementa-
tion," the LFD received a written agreement. Roy
said that the agreement effectively transfers control of LFD
to Walton County, and that release of the approved county
funds is contingent upon LFD signing the agreement.
Upon review of the proposed agreement, LFD submitted
its own re-written version, and asked for a written response

that social, recreational, and
learning opportunities
should be planned for the
growing retirement commu-
nity in central Walton
County.
A recent study by the
Florida Department of Elder
Affairs and Florida Associa-
tion of Senior Centers deter-
mined recreation was the
most popular activity in 258
senior centers around the
state. This was followed by
health and wellness, educa-
tion classes, art classes, and
other special events.
Serving as chairman of the
committee, J. Buie Hillard
says he sees this as "an op-
portunity to plan a commu-
nity based center that will
serve a population that has
been overlooked in Walton
County. As a growing, vi-
brant, and active retirement
population emerges, they will


need services and activity as
participating citizens in the
community. A well planned
center for retirees wiill be an
attraction for potential and
current residents."
Both county and city
elected officials and staff
serve on, the committee, as
well as community citizens.
DeFuniak Springs mem-
bers include Commissioner
Kenneth Pridgen, Ken Little
and Sara Comander of Citi-
zen Services, Councilman
James Coffield, City Man-
ager Kim Presnell and citi-
zens Alex Alexander, Mary
Lind Devlin, Marvin
Campbell and Ernest
Underwood.
The committee will meet at

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


PERSONAL COMMENTS



EDITOR'S COMMENT:




The future of our past


By RONKELLEY

By now, most of you know that I am fascinated with the
history of Walton County. After several articles and numer-
ous editorials on the subject, I've been pleased to discovered
that I am not alone.
I do love hearing the old stories, reading those early ac-
counts and staring at the classic photos of an era that was
long gone before I arrived.
That, no doubt, accounts for my participation in organi-




CLARIFICATION

Some information was omitted from the Jan. 12 article,
"Dark sand allowed to stay on Seagrove Beach."
Prior to Walton County setting the 7.2 Munsell soil color
scale standard for sand brought onto the beach for the Post-
Hurricane-Dennis emergency repair work, the official stan-
dard was 6.2 on the Munsell scale.
Also, according to Walton County Code Enforcement Co-
ordinator Kevin Hargett, after code enforcement placed a
stop work order on the beach project being conducted by the
five adjacent Montgomery Street homeowners due to sev-
eral truckloads of 5.3 Munsell sand being brought onto the,
beach, removal of the dark sand was mandated. Hargett
said that code enforcement verified that the 5.3 sand had
been removed before the stop work order was removed.
We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience this may
have caused.



Editor,
On behalf of Sheriff Johnson, I would like to take this
time and thank the individuals and businesses for their

zations like Grit & Grace and the Heritage Association, as
well as my support for the annual Chautauqua Assembly.
All of those things are conspiring to fill my copious free
time, but I can't really complain. I really do enjoy them all.
The Chautauqua Assembly, scheduled for Feb. 23 -26, will
be another great chance for all of us to stretch our minds,
see some world-class performances and soothe our troubled
spirits through music, laughter and the exchange of ideas.
More so than ever before, this Assembly has been planned
with Walton County residents in mind. There are tons of
things for us to see and do and many things are free or amaz-
ingly inexpensive.
Thisis also a make or break year for the Assembly, so
although no one will be able to see and do everything that's
offered, I urge everyone to attend as many of the events as
you can fit into your schedule.
In partnership with the Assembly, the Walton County
Heritage Association is holding their annual History Fair.
As a member of the organization, you can take my word for




CORRECTION

As reported in the Jan. 12 article, "Citizen support beach
nourishment," the sand source for the large-scale western
Walton County beach nourishment project will be the Des-
tin East Pass ebb shoal, and this will be the site for sand
dredging.
The article should have read, "Pickel said he expects fill-
ing (not dredging) to begin on Jan. 23 in the area of the El-
ephant Walk restaurant in connection with the restoration
effort."
We regret any confusion this may have caused.



Editor,
I especially enjoyed the January 12 issue of the Herald-
Breeze. It was a real pleasure and truly gratifying to read
about the Victorian Tea given by Sandy Graff's senior stu-
dents. What fun it must be to be taught by such a talented
and compassionate person.
From the first time I met Sandy in the first Grit and Grace
performance, when her role was a very long and difficult
monologue, I've been very impressed with her many abili-
ties. -
Then when you add those human dvnamos-Jeanette
Lammers, Mildred Wilkerson, Peggy .shite, and Sherie'.
Kline to the mix with obviously talented students, ofcourse,
it had to be a stellar performance.
Don't you love to read success stories? It adds one more to
the many reasons to love living in Walton County.-

it this is going to be a spectacular event, chock full of in-
credible presentations and exhibits. No local history enthu-
siast will leave unsatisfied.
I won't give away any of the surprises, but let it suffice to
say that if you don't attend, you'll be sorry. For the admis-
sion price of a single dollar, you simply can't go wrong.
Can't close without saying that the Grit & Grace board of
directors are planning an exciting new show for the coming
season. It will contain new stories and new songs from new
performers and some familiar faces.
If you haven't seen a Grit & Grace performance yet or if
you think all the best stories have been told, you have a real
surprise coming.
I urge you to not only take in these wonderful events, but
to also bring along a young person who may not realize the
unique and amazing history that we all share.
I hope I can count on your support of all these wonderful
events and shows. For all of us, it will be a chance to touch
our roots and protect and preserve the future of our past.

School

district

receives

Sprint

donation
The Walton County School
District has received a $5,000
donation from Sprint to be
used for materials and sup-
plies in the district schools.
Sprint, a long time supporter
of the Walton County School
District, contacted Superin-
tendent Carlene Anderson to
offer the gift of $5,000.
When asked how the dona-
tion was to be spent and what
guidelines were given with
the donation, the reply from
Sprint was to spend the
money for anything the
schools needed in the area of
materials and supplies.
The District has matched
the donation with an addi-
tional $5.000 and nimoney will
be distributed'to schools
based on a per student ratio.
Superintendent Anderson ex-
pressed gratitude to Sprint
for the donation and the fact
that there were no encumber-
ing "strings attached" made
the gift so much more attrac-
tive.

"ASSISTED LIVING AT ITS FINEST"


The New Year reminds us that it is time to put
away the "old", and ring in the "new". We welcome a
brand new year at Stanley House! It promises to be
full of excitement with new. activities added to the
calendar and hopefully new residents to our com-
munity, too! We look forward to activities like the
monthly birthday party, "Armchair Travel", (this
month we are going to Egypt, France, and China!),
special events, (pie bake-off, Friday the 13th, hat
contest, and a tea party). Every morning begins
with "Sit-N-Fit", to stretch those muscles that have
been sleeping all night. Next, we exercise our
brains, with brain games, triple trivia, story hour,
or Bible study. The afternoon promises one of our
many wonderful musical groups that volunteer
their time and talents to our residents. And don't
forget everyone's favorite, BINGO! Every day will
be filled with laughter and fun through our Life
Enrichment department. Yes, our residents enjoy
the good life every day with full service living at it's
best, allowing our residents to remain active and
maximizing their independence.
Each resident treasures the privacy of their own
spacious studio or one-bedroom suite that comes
equipped with individual temperature control, a
private bathroom with a walk in shower and heat
lamp, a kitchenette complete with refrigerator and
microwave oven, and emergency call systems where
they have access to help 24/7. The exterior doors to
Stanley House are secured for additional peace of
mind. For added convenience, mail is delivered to


each resident's own private mailbox.
Stanley House's living room with fireplace is the
perfect place to catch up on the latest with friends
and family or to enjoy a good movie, (complete with
popcorn), or just relax while listening to music. Our
library is stocked with the latest best selling novels,
(most are in large print), compliments of the Walton
County Library. Our residents and staff always look
their best with the on-site beauty and barber salon,
"The Hair Center". Our beautiful outdoor courtyard
is always being used by residents taking walks,
playing games, having cookouts, or just enjoying the
fresh air and sunshine and the friendship of each
other.
For short term stays, respite care provides serv-
ices to those needing some care and assistance after
a hospital stay, recent surgery, or if their caregivers
want to take a needed break. Each respite suite is


graciously furnished with all of the comforts of
home, and includes personal and memory care
assistance. Respite suites can be rented for as little
as a weekend stay or for as long as a month or two.
Our customer service trained staff provides the
highest quality of services with a smile. Those serv-
ices include three delicious home-cooked meals
served daily in our beautiful dining room; house-
keeping and personal laundry service; health moni-
toring and medication assistance 24 hours a day,
assistance with all 'activities of daily living", (bat-
hing, dressing, walking, and toileting); coordinating
nutritional needs; scheduling doctor's appoint-
ments; and routine maintenance. Our community is
designed so that residents can remain as independ-
ent as possible. Each resident's service plan is as
individual as the resident, providing only the serv-
ices that are needed or wanted.
It's easy to see that the Stanley House offers the
finest quality of care at surprisingly affordable
prices. The residents and staff at Stanley House
invite you to come by for a tour and lunch to experi-
ence Stanley House firsthand. Stanley House is
locally owned and operated and is centrally located
at 718 Walton Road in DeFuniak Springs. It's never
too soon to move to the Stanley House, but it could
be too late. There are only a couple of suites still
available, so make your New Year's resolution to
move to the Stanley House. Call today for more
information i850' 951-1880. You will be so glad you
did!

A blown tire on Interstate
10 left an Illinois woman in-
jured on the afternoon of
January 16.
Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) investigating trooper
R.C. Carlan reported that a
vehicle was driving west on
I-10, near the 83 mile post.
The driver was Lynn D.
Gildersleeve, 43, of 448 West
Green Drive, Wheelin, Illi-
nois.
The right rear tire blew,
causing Gildersleeve to lose


control of the vehicle. The
vehicle turned counterclock-
wise, sliding into the median,
then overturning.
Gildersleeve, the only occu-
pant bf the vehicle, was taken
to North Okaloosa Medical
Center.
The FHP report does not
state whether Gildersleeve
was wearing a seatbelt, or
whether drugs or alcohol
were involved "
Charges of unsafe equip-
ment and'd rising without

paradise.
Nelson had only praise for
local officials' handling of
growth issues. "Walton
County, I think, has handled
growth, and high quality
growth, about as good as any-
body can do.
The Patriot Act was one of
the topics he addressed.
Nelson said,"When the Pa-
triot Act was first brought up
four years ago, I voted for it
and I will vote to re-enact it.
The vote that just recently
occurred was not on the origi-
nal Patriot Act, but the origi-
nal Patriot Act expanded -
and that's what I voted to
delay so that we could deal
with those two parts that are
expanded that give me
trouble," he said.
"One of them is that it
would allow the United
States government to snoop
into your library records and
your hospital records with
you not being suspected of
terrorism and to do that
without the government get-
ting a court order.
"This is just an open
invitation...I don't know if,
when you were in school,
your read George Orwell's
1984, about Big Brother. We
want to protect our privacy
and I think that's crossing
the line," he said.
"The other expanded provi-
sion would allow the govern-
ment to sent out a National
Security letter and request
all kinds of private informa-
tion, and under penalty of
federal law, you can't tell any-
one that you received that
letter. Only after the fact that
you have responded are you
allowed to consult with an at-
torney," said Nelson.
"This is getting awfully
heavy-handed and I'm just
simply not going to support
an invasion into our privacy."
Nelson said he supports
the other provision of the
Act, especially where it ap-
plies to surveillance of a per-
son through the monitoring
of any and all communica-
tions devices, from phones to
computers, wireless cell
phones, both public and pri-
vate numbers.
Regarding the revelation
concerning the National Se-
curity Agency having been or-
dered by President Bush to
spy on Americans without
getting a court order, Nelson
condemned the action.
"That's a violation of the
law and I think that's wrong,"
he said. Nelson says he
doesn't buy the excuse that
federal agencies "don't have
time to get the court order."
He noted that a special For-
eign Intelligence Surveil-
lance Court (FISC) had been
set up to handle such re-
quests and the current law
actually allows the agency to
act first and then seek the
court order up to three days
later.
"I believe the NSA broke
the law and I support the ex-
isting law," said Nelson.
Closer to home, Nelson
talked about solutions to lo-
cal frustrations regarding
the four-laning of U.S. 331.
"We were finally able to get
the Highway Bill passed that
provides $274 billion for the
whole country, which is then
sent to individual state road
departments. They are the
ones who make the choices as
to the allocation of the
money," he said.
"I have talked to the FDOT
about this road ... I'm going
to keep pushing it. I know the
need. I've driven up and

down this road and if you've
got an inbound hurricane,
you're really going to have a
traffic jam and it clearly
needs to be four-laned. And
it will be, it will be eventu-
ally.
"I would suggest that you
all have some communica-
tion with the Chipley office
of the DOT. They've got the
money now. The money is al-
located from the federal gov-
ernment for the federal por-
tion of it. Of course, part of
the spending would be from
the state, as well," said
Nelson.
DeFuniak Springs City
Manager Kim Presnell asked
Nelson to contact the new
Department of Transporta-
tion secretary, Denver
Stutler Jr., and put in a good
word for the project. She
noted that there had been a
recent meeting between
Stutler and city and county
officials. Nelson promised he
would follow-up on her re-
quest.
Nelson also addressed
drilling for oil in the Arctic
National Wildlife Refuge
(ANWR) and efforts by cer-
tain members of the govern-
ment to circumvent the ban
on drilling off the Florida
coast.
Regarding drilling in the
Gulf of Mexico, Nelson said
he and Senator Mel Martinez
have been "battling an oil in-
dustry that is absolutely in-
tent on drilling off our coast,"
despite the fact that geologi-
cal reports prove that there's
riif-rf uiTfi-oT tIere.
He said that Gail Norton,
the secretary of the Depart-
ment of the Interior, is abso-
lutely determined to drill
there, so much so that she
changed the state boundaries
as it applies to the Gulf.
"Just last week, they
printed in the Federal Regis-
try, a new definition of the
state boundaries and all of
this four million acres south
of here that they want to drill
in, has been redefined as
Louisiana coast, not Florida!
I'm not kidding, they actually
did this," he said.
However, Nelson predicted
that he and Martinez would
win this battle because of the
fact that the Gulf also repre-
sents the largest testing
grounds for U.S. military air-
craft in the world and, as a
vital part of America's na-
tional defense, oil derricks
cannot be allowed. Further,
he has an official letter from
Secretary of Defense Donald
Rumsfeld, written months
ago, saying that such a drill-
ing program would impede
the preparedness of the U.S.
military.
Despite this, Nelson la-
mented the fact that he and
Martinez have to fight the
same battles over and over
again.
"I did my first filibuster
last summer when they were
trying to put oil drilling on
the coast of Florida onto an
energy bill ... so we got it
stopped then and now Mel
and I are going to give them
another taste of it pretty
soon, since we now have Sec-
retary Rumsfeld's letter."
Regarding the Alaskan
drilling proposal, Nelson
said, "I voted against the
drilling in Alaska for all the
reasons you've already heard
and a couple of reasons you
haven't heard.
"First, this oil field would
not be producing at capacity
for another 10 years and
guess where they would send
the oil? Not to the United
States they're going to send
it to Japan.
"And there's something else

TULIP POPLAR-Lirnodendron tulipifera.


CAAMELIAS-Carnellia japonica and Camellia sansanqua.


By Dl.AA DOBSON.
WALTON COUNTY
IL-ASTER GARDENER
In 1S72. J. Sterling Morton proposed that a special day be
set aside for planting trees. This holiday became known as
Arbor Day. In years past, it was observed on the last Friday
in April. Today, each state selects their own day for obser-
vance based on the best tree planting date for that region.
Florida has designated the third Friday in January as Ar-
bor Day. Arbor Day this year will be on Friday, January 20.
The national tree is the oak i Fagaceae family). There are
approximately 500 species that grow in the northern hemi-
sphere. Florida's oaks are often thought of as being more
characteristic of the northern part of our state. Of the 24
oak species native to Florida the live oak (Quercus virginiana)
is the only oak found statewide.
Florida has more native tree species than any other state.
Of the 625 trees native to North America at least 275 are
found in Florida. Florida's state tree is the cabbage palm
(Sabal palmetto). Sadly, Florida has lost millions of trees
"this year 'due to the hurricanes. It is of vital importance

that we replace these trees. If trees have not recovered from
the storms by now, it's time to replace them. Don't put it off.
Residents desperately need to replace the tree that have been
badly damaged or lost.
Arbor Day is a great time to remember how important our
trees are to the ecosystem. A tree can manufacture five
pounds of pure oxygen a day. Trees also consume carbon di-
oxide. This helps to fight the greenhouse effect that threat-
ens our survival. Carefully placed trees can provide cooling
summer shade and maximize energy gains from winter sun-
light, cutting annual home energy use by as much as 15 per-
cent to 35 percent. Deciduous trees shade and cool homes in
the summer, then when their leaves fall in the winter they
allow warming sunlight to shine through. For best results,
plant trees to the east and west of your house. Planting trees
to shade your air conditioning compressor units can increase
cooling efficiency as much as 10 percent. A mature tree can
provide the cooling equivalent of ten room-sized air condi-
tioning units. With energy prices going up, planting trees
strategically makes better sense now than ever before.
Trees are also a vital component in the landscape for sup-
porting wildlife. Birds and small animals need concealed
places for nesting and hiding from predators. Planting ever-
greens in small groups will attract more birds to your yard.
Birds love cedars and hollies. Flowering trees like dogwoods,
redbuds and fringe trees have beautiful flowers and attract
birds too. Don't forget the fruit trees. They have gorgeous
spring flowers before they set fruit.
Butterflies also depend on our Florida trees. Six species of
oak trees provide butterfly larval food: Chapman's oak
(Quercus chapmanii), sand live oak (Q. geminata), laurel oak
(Q. laurafoliaj. water oak (Q. nigra), willow oak (Q. phellos)
and live oak (Q. virginiana).
Other beautiful butterfly attractant trees are sweet bay
magnolias, American elms, tulip poplars and red buckeyes.
The Walton County Master Gardeners will hold their an-
nual tree and shrub sale on Saturday, January 21, from 9
a.m. to noon at the Walton- County Fairgrounds on Hwy. 83.
They have selected a great group of flowering shrubs, abelias,
altheas, azaleas and camellias. The Florida plant of the year,
the crepe myrtle, 'tonto red' will be making its debut along
with six other newer disease-resistant crepe myrtle culti-
vars.
There will also be a good selection of shade trees including
oaks, magnolias, cypress, cottonwood, sycamores, river birch
elms, ginkos, cabbage palms and more.
Fruit trees that are appropriate to grow in north Florida
will be available, including 'Anna' and 'Dorsett Golden'
apples, rabbiteye blueberries, Meyers lemons, 'Fuyu' persimL
mons, plums, pears, grapes, figs, blackberries and raspber-
ries.
Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer questions,
and free printed material that addresses fertilization, prun-
ing and maintenance of the plants you choose will be avail-
able at the check out tables.

Fruit Bearing

By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC

Jesus was not an extension of God, He was God incar-
nate. His mission, if he chose, was to bring God to us. Be-
fore Jesus, God got His word out through covenant, proph-
ets, priests, kings, law, ordinance, feasts, ,signs and won-
ders. God promised in Eden His plan of redemption.
For this to happen, God's Word had to go forth in power.
God planted a seed, but unlike our planting His planting
was creative. The Holy Spirit anointed Jesus of Nazareth.
He was planted in the ground after death, but he arose
again, empowered the Church, and now it is our turn to
take what God has planted within the Body of Christ and
plant it in others through witnessing.
God does not want spiritual nuts, but fruit bearers. Fruit
bearing has nothing to do with how busy you are, how holy
you look, or how long you have been a church member.
Without fruit bearing, Christianity dies. All planting be-
gins in soil preparation, not being busy. Have you prayed
today? Have you shared Jesus?
Stop by here on your way to eternity. Sunday 10 a.m.;
Evening 6 .pm.; Wed. 6 p.m. WZEP 1460, 7:05-7:30 Sun-
day morning.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JANUARY 19, 2006


Bush pulls ultimate surprise


By CHUCK HINSON
Some had speculated,
while others said it was just
rumor that USC running
back Reggie Bush would
leave the college scene and do
the NFL thing. But on Thurs-
day, that is exactly what he
announced at a press confer-
ence in Los Angeles.
He is skipping his senior
year at USC to enter the NFL
draft.
Some chalked up the deci-
sion for Bush to exit the
NCAA line-up for the 2006
season after the Trojans fell
to Texas in the Rose Bowl
and ended their 37-game
winning streak and made
them fall short of their at-
tempt at a third straight
consecutive national title.
Others say the dollar marks
in his eyes were too great of
an influence for him to stay in
school one more year.

You couldn't pick up a pa-
per over the past few weeks
without seeing USC's Reggie
Bush plastered all over the
front of the sports page. His
latest award was the Associ-
ated Press Player of the Year.


The junior tailback wiped
out the competition in all
areas of awards this year. He
also won the Heisman Tro-
phy back in December.
Bush stole the show with
the AP where he received 59
out of 65 media voting bal-
lots. Texas quarterback
Vince Young received five
votes and Georgia's quarter-
back D.J. Shockley got the
remaining votes.
He has assisted in USC's
37 consecutive straight wins
and will leading the No. 1
Trojans in the Rose Bowl,
facing No. 2 Texas on Jan. 4
for the team's third straight


national championship bid.
Bush was also awarded the
Walter Camp Player of the
Year, the Doak Walker
Award for the best running
back in the country, and was
a unanimous choice for the
AP first-team All-American.
He racked up 6,651 yards in
39 games scored 42 touch-
downs for the Trojans in his
three-year career.
Bush is expecting to be one
of the first players snatched
up in the draft, with many
projecting that he will go in
the first round to the Hous-
ton Texans, since he is slated
as the No. 1 pick.

Personal Comment

College football overtime needs tweaking


By PATRICK CASEY
I have had a couple of
weeks to digest the Penn
State-FSU triple overtime
game and I am still not
happy with the way it ended.
Not because FSU lost, which
was disappointing to this
FSU graduate, but because of
the overtime rules that just
celebrated their 10th birth-
day in college football play.
The Orange Bowl was a
classic defensive battle
cheapened in the extra
frames by having possessions
starting at the 25-yard line,
as per current overtime
rules. Before overtime was
instituted in 1996, games
that ended in ties stayed that
way. Most football fans de-
spised that fact,, as did I, but
after 10 years with the cur-
rent system, I am now not so
sure the change has made
the game better.
The Orange Bowl deserved
an extra period of play, 10-15
minutes in a fifth period
where you flip the coin, kick
it off, and play it outjust like
the prior 60 minutes of ac-
tion. Instead, we got a pa-
thetic field goal kicking con-
test that FSU never seems to
win at, and Penn State tried
to match.
Give me back my ties. I
never thought I would write
that, as I was a big proponent
of overtime 10 years ago
when it was instituted. Look-
ing back on whsuas hap-
pened in the lastd'cade since
the implementation, I think
the current system is abSur'd.


The Mississippi-Arkansas
game in 2001 that went
seven overtime periods is one
of the biggest jokes in foot-
ball, as far as I am concerned.
How two teams with de-
fenses that bad can play for
five hours is an affront to the
game. Arkansas won the con-
test 58-56 despite the fact
that the game was tied 17-17
at the end of four quarters.
So how do we fix this ab-
surd system? With a 10 or 15-
minute fifth quarter.
Don't get hyper on me and
tell me games are too long.
The latest King Kong movie
lasts 187 minutes. We work
at our jobs for eight hours,
five days a week. A four-hour
college football game, usually
out in the fresh air, is not to
be rushed.
Besides, you think the
seven overtime Ole Miss-Ar-
kansas game was short?
Let's flip the coin, kick it
off, and play real football. A
10-minute overtime would
likely give each team two
Possessions and both would
receive two timeouts to start
the extra frame. Play the
game the way it is intended
and by the rules that gov-
erned the first 60 minutes.

And if the game is tied af-
ter 70 or 75 minutes? In the
regular season, let it stay a
tie, the NFL does, though
they rarely occur. In the con-
ference championship games
or national title contest, go to
the system that is now in


place after the fifth quarter,
or, as in the NFL, double
overtime with the first team
to score getting the win.
The NFL does it right with
their overtime system, other
than not allowing the team
that lost the coin toss tp have
at least one crack at the foot-
ball should the receiving
team score on their first pos-
session of overtime. Statisti-
cally it has been proven'that
winning the coin flip doesn't
automatically win the game,
but tell that to the team who
never got to have the ball on
offense that lost in OT.
High school football in
Florida uses the same system
as college, only giving each
team the ball at the 10-yard
line in the extra frame.
Again, I would rather see the
game end in a tie than use
this system. Kick it off and
play an extra 8-to-10 minute
quarter. If the game is tied
after that, then use the cur-
rent system in district and
playoff games with all non-
district games ending in ties.
No system is fool-proof or
necessarily holds all the an-
swers. But a system where
the games stays the same is
preferable to a scaled-down
arcade version that is em-
ployed just to save a little
time.
Baseball has extra innings,
but the rules are the same.
Basketball has a timed over-
time, first basket scored
doesn't end the contest.

South Walton High

School begins

reading initiative


Computer keyboards are
silent; brushes and paints in
the art room are put away;
no one is playing basketball
in the gym. The only sound
at South Walton High School
between 10:51 and 11:11 a.m.
is the sound of pages turn-
ing.
The administration and
faculty at SWHS knew they
wanted to make dramatic
improvements in the reading
skills of students throughout
the entire school.
Students are encouraged to
bring their own paperback
novels or other reading ma-
terials from home. In addi-
tion, Beth Seale, media spe-
cialist, put together a wide
assortment of books for all
different reading levels and
interests and has provided
each classroom inith its own
"minm-library".
Principal Mark Ewing
said, "Each classroom
teacher has received a port-


folio ofreading strategies and
training that may be incor-
porated within the curricu-
lum. To create an over-all
school climate for reading
enjoyment, we have estab-
lished a 20-minute silent lei-
sure reading time that fol-
lows second period."
Senior Marie Motch said "I
love it! I never give myself
enough time to read. There's
always so many other things
to do." Senior Briggs Bruni
agrees. "This was the best
idea ever!" Freshman Sadie
Hussien agrees. "I really like
that I can read the books I
want to read, and to do it in
an absolutely quiet atmo-
sphere."
Sandy Graff, Language
Arts and Speech teacher,
stated "From the students'
reactions, this program is one
of the most popular concepts
that South Walton High
School has ever put into prac-
,tice."

Commissioners show support


for vegetative preservation


By DOTTY NIST
Could the CR-30A Scenic
Corridor end up as "all palms
and turf," despite native
plant preservation require-
ments, as community leader
Anita Page warns?
Pagd spoke up for the pres-
ervation of native plant com-
munities on CR-30A at the
Jan. 10 Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) meeting. The South
Walton Community Council
executive director's remarks
coincided with the commis-
sioners' consideration of the
Caspian Estates develop-
ment proposal.
For developments on par-


cels two acres or more in size
on CR-30A, the Walton
County Planning Depart-
ment requires preservation
of 25 to 50 percent of native
sand pine scrub, longleaf
pine sandhill or xeric oak
scrub vegetation. Twenty-
five percent preservation is
possible with a developer
"buy-out" agreement for the
remaining 25 percent.
While the Scenic Corridor
CR-30A section ofthe Walton
County Land Development
Code also states that smaller
parcels on CR-30A are sub-
ject to these requirements, in
fall 2004 the county opted not
to enforce them on parcels


"V5


A.









A VIEW OF THE EASTERNpart of CR-30A. Couldpalms
and turflike this replace existing native vegetation on most
of the undeveloped parts of the scenic county roadway in the
future? Palm trees are not native to this part of Florida. If
county commissioners follow through with a Jan. 10 deci-
sion, much native vegetation may be preserved on CR-30A.


smaller than two acres.
In Sept. 2004, attorney
George Ralph Miller argued
that the county's removal of
an exemption from preserva-
tion requirements, with re-
gard to parcels smaller than
two acres two years earlier,
had been done improperly,
putting the land develop-
ment code in conflict with the
Walton County Comprehen-
sive Plan. At that time the
BCC agreed, voting unani-
mously to direct staff to be
guided by the more liberal
comp plan provision.
As Billy McKee, county en-
vironmental planner, com-
mented on Jan. 10, based on
that decision county staff
was directed not to apply the
preservation requirements
for parcels smaller than two
acres on CR30-A.
David Hallman of Walton
County Legal Services re-
marked that the county's po-
sition is that there was a flaw
in the adoption procedure
when the exemption on the
smaller parcels was removed
by ordinance. This is the po-
sition that the county is tak-
ing in an ongoing legal chal-
lenge brought by citizens, he
added.
Page responded that unfor-
tunately most ofthe undevel-
oped lots on CR-30A are less
than two acres in size.
"30Ais being clear cut with
rampant abandon...basically
gutting the whole concept of
a scenic corridor," she
charged.
Despite the official county
position, the commissioners
expressed concern for the
destruction ofthe native veg-
etation on CR-30A.
District 4 Commissioner
Ro Cuchens thought he re-
called that some remedy had
been in the works for the
situation.
Page responded that Tom
Blackshear, former county
long-range planner, had at
one time been working on
draft language on options for


different percentages of veg-
etative preservation on the
CR-30A Scenic Corridor.
District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones asked if staff
could take another look at
that draft with the aim of re-
solving the preservation is-
sue at hand.
County Planning Director
Pat Blackshear said she
would ask Tom Blackshear if
he remembered the draft and
would try to locate it.
A motion by District 5
Commissioner Cindy Mead-
ows to direct staff to continue
work on the language was
approved unanimously
The commissioners dis-
cussed the recent clear cut-
ting of the 2.84-acre undevel-
oped parcel across from
White Cliffs in Blue Moun-
tain Beach, which
Blackshear called "a clear-
cut violation" due to the size
of the property. The property
was also cleared without a
permit, according to Walton
County Code Enforcement.
The property owner is sub-
ject to fines and is being re-
quired to replant with native
vegetation.
Cuchens suggested revis-
ing clearing permits to
plainly state that it is unlaw-
ful to clear cut.
Blackshear said she would
ask staff to do so and would
also ask them to encourage
developers to preserve native
scrub.
"In most cases they are
willing to do that," she said.
This was the case with
Caspian Estates, a nine-lot
residential development pro-
posed for 1.27 acres at CR-
30A and South Spooky Lane.
Developer Barbara Stokes
voluntarily agreed to meet
the vegetative preservation
requirements that the county
would have applied to her
property if it had been two
acres or larger.

The proposal was approved
unanimously.


School board buys land from Pauls


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County School
Board met on Tuesday, Janu-
ary 10, at the Tivoli Admin-
istrative Complex in DeFu-
riak Springs for what will be
their only meeting of the
month.
Tim Pauls, a former Walton
County Commissioner, has
agreed to hand over a 33-by-
478-foot strip of land adja-
cent to Van R. Butler El-
ementary School in exchange
for $50,000 in fees and dam-
ages. The trade ends a battle
over the 12-feet of road that
was built in 1996 as a bus


access route that inadvert-
ently crossed Paul's private
property. The 18-month dis-
pute had bogged down into a
legal battle for most of 2005
as the school board and Pauls
negotiated over the right to
use the strip of land. The
board voted 5-0 to approve
the action.
The board adopted a confi-
dentiality procedure regard-
ing the use of students'
names during the public
comments portion of the
school board meetings. The
board will enunciate a state-
ment before that portion of


the meeting from now on
that states, "Any person ad-
dressing the Board is re-
minded that the name of any
student, other than the chil-
dren of the person address-
ing the Board, should not be
mentioned or disclosed in the
person's comments."
The board approved an ac-
tion for the establishment of
an Air Force Junior Reserve
Officer Training Corps Unit
at Walton High School. Wal-
ton will provide space needed
to conduct the class and some
of the after school activities
as the program is developed.


The school board approved
Walton High School's travel
for the school's senior trip
from April 3-8. Students will
travel to Los Angeles and
San Diego as part of the
yearly event.
Bill Laird was chosen to
serve on the 2006-07 calen-
dar committee that sets the
district's school year, work
days, and off days for holi-
days and breaks.
The next regularly sched-
uled meeting of the Walton
County School Board will be
on Monday, February 7, at 5
p.m.

TESTING AND FINDING

SA WATER LEAK


If your water bill is higher than usual for no
apparent reason its time to do a little household
S investigating to see if you have a leak.


First, turn off all appliances that use water such
as washing machines. ice-makers, and faucets. Then.
make sure no one uses any water for at least an hour.
That means do not use any sinks or faucets, in-
side or out, and no toilet flushing. Next, go out-
S side and check the reading on your meter. After an
hour. check the meter again. If it has not moved then
there are no leaks. If it has, check each fixture, fau-
cet and appliance, one by one. Be sure to also look
i for any telltale puddles or wet spots on floors or ceil-
ing. A leak within a wall or under a floor, left unat-
tended, could result in serious structural damage over
a period of time.


If you still can't find the leak in the house you
can step up your investigation and try to determine
if a leak is outside the house.


First, you will need to turn the water off where
it enters your home. Note the reading on the water
meter and then take a break. Later, check the meter
again and see if the reading has changed. If the read-
ing has changed then you have found the leak. If it
hasn't, then you may need to call a plumber and have
him determine if you have a leak.


By taking a little time to get to the bottom of
your rising water bill, you could save a lot of money.

and various tours and reen-

The Florida Chautauqua
Assembly has long depended
on the influx of tourists that
make their way from all over
the country. It is the destina-
tion for many tourists that
make this their one and only
vacation stop in February.
This year, more and more
ofthese events willbe geared
toward locals, with discus-
sions, seminars and present-
ers that know the history of
this area and will share ideas
of where we will be heading
in the future. That is why, we
as locals, must get involved
and support our local cul-
-,ral ve nts.

A person whose substantial inter-
ests are affected by the above pro-
posed agency action may petition for
an administrative determination
(hearing) under sections 120.569
and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes.

persons other than those entitled to

120.60(3) of the Florida Statutes
must be filed within 14 days of pub-
lication of this notice or receipt of
the written notice, whichever occurs
first. The petitioner shall mail a
copy of the petition to the applicant
at the address indicated above at the
time of filing. The failure of anyper-
son to file a petition within the ap-


propriate time period shall consti-
tute a waiver of that person's right
to request an administrative deter-'
mination (hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida
Statutes, or to intervene in this pro-
ceeding and participate as a party

(in a proceeding initiated by another
party) will be only at the discretion
f the presiding officer upon the fil-
ing of a motion in compliance with
Rule 28-106.205 of the Florida Ad-
ministrative Code.
A petition that disputes the ma-
terial facts on which the Depart-
ment's action is based must contain

phone number of each petitioner, the
applicant's name and address, the

tion;
(c) A statement of how each
petitioner's substantial interests are
affected by the Department's action
or proposed action;
(d) A statement of all material
facts disputed by petitioner or a
statement that there are no dis-
puted facts;
(e) A statement of facts, which
the petitioner contends warrant re-
versal or modification of the

tion;
(f) Astatement of which rules or
statues petitioner contends require

state that no such facts are in dis-
pute and otherwise shall contain the
same information as set forth above,
as required by Rule 28-106.301 of
the Florida Administrative code.
Because the administrative
hearing process is designed to for-
mulate final agency action, the fil-
ing of a petition means that the
Department's final action may be
different from the position taken by
it in this notice. Persons whose sub-
stantial interests will be affected by
any such final decision of the De-
partment have the right to petition
to become a partytothe proceeding,
in accordance with the requirements
set forth above.

vises that mediation is not available

Statutes as provided below. Mitiga-
tion will include 13.2 acres of wet-
land and 1.7 acres of upland onsite

Offsite mitigation includes 29.6
acres of wetland'restoration, en-
hancement and preservation, with
a 14.1 acre upland buffer. Total miti-
gation area includes 58.6 acres. The
procedures fqr petitioning for a hear-
ing are set forth below. The project
is located on the south side of High-
way 98, approximately one mile east
of the intersection of Highway 393
and Highway 98, lots 62 and 63 of

classified Shellfish HarvestingArea,
Latitude: 3022'22.84", Longitude:

A person whose substantial in-
terests are affected by the
Department's action may petition
for an administrative proceeding
(hearing) under Sections 120.569
and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes.
The petition must contain the infor-
mation set forth below and must be
filed (received by the clerk) in the
Office of General Counsel of the De-
partment at 3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Talla-
hassee, Florida 32399-3000.

Because the administrative
hearing process is designed to rede-
termine final agency action on the
application, the filing of a petition
for an administrative hearing may
result in a modification of the per-
mit and lease, or even a denial of
the application. Accordingly the ap-
plicant is advised not to commence
construction or other activities un-
der this permit/lease until the dead-
lines below for filing a petition for
an administrative hearing or re-
quest for an extension of time have
expired.

Under Rule 62-110.106(4) of the
Florida Administrative Code, a per-
son whose substantial interests are
affected by theDepartment's action
may also request an extension of
time to file a petition for an admin-
istrative hearing. The Department
may, for good cause shown, grantthe
request for an extension of time. Re-
quests for extension of time must be
filed with the Office of the General
Counsel of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail
Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida
32399-3000, before the applicable


deadline. A timely request for ex-
tension of time shall toll the running
time period for filing a petition un-
til the request is acted upon. If a
request is filed late, the Department
may still grant it upon a motion by
the requesting party showing that
the failure to file a request for an
extension of time before the dead-
line was the result of excusable ne-
glect.

In the event that a timely and
sufficient petition for an administra-
tive hearing is filed, other persons
whose substantial interests will be
affected by the outcome of the ad-
ministrative process have the right
to petition to intervene in the pro-
ceeding. Intervention will be only at
the discretion of the presiding officer


upon the filing of a motion in com-
pliance with rule 28-106.205 of the
Florida Administrative Code.

In accordance with rules 28-
106.111(2) and 62-110.106 (3) (a)(4),
petitions for an administrativehear-
ing by the applicant must be filled
within 21 days of receipt of this writ-
ten notice. Petitions filed by any per-
