Criticism and opposition
from several quarters may
have opened the door to pos-
sible compromise in the pro-
posed Walton County Fire
Rescue (WCFR) consolida-
tion.
Last week, the Herald ran
the first of several articles on
the move by the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners' (BCC) to-
ward creating the WCFR.
The move came as a result
of a study and proposed
"master plan." under which
the 11 independently func-
tioning fire departments in
the northern part of the
county would agree to con-
solidate as WCFR.
The BCC hired Eddie Riv-
ers in 2005 to serve as fire
manager. Rivers told the Her-
ald that consolidation, and
its resultant standardization
of equipment, procedures,
and services would offer a
number of benefits to county
residents.
SRivers acknowledged that
the plan had opposition, say-
ing that it stemmed largely
from some independents'
fear of"loss of control."
Among the most outspoken
of the independents has been
Chief Roger Roy of Liberty
Fire District (LFD). Along
with Argyle Fire District,
LFD refused to sign a pro-
posed agreement sent by
Walton County last Septem-
ber.
Instead, LFD reworked
some of the language in the
agreement, and returned it
to the BCC, requesting action
by December 10, 2005.
Though the BCC did not
respond by that date, Roy
said that LFD recently did
receive yet another draft of
the proposed agreement from
BCC.
According to Roy, the re-
vised agreement has "signifi-
cant" language changes, ef-
fectively resolving several
problematic issues.
According to Roy, a recent
television news broadcast
gave an inaccurate account of
LFD's response to a fire at a
trailer on December 13 of last
year.
The incident involved a
911 call to which LFD re-
sponded. According to the
news report, two additional

persons, from other fire de-
partments, were on the
scene, but were not not asked
by LFD to assist in fighting
the fire.
Roy denied being aware of
any such persons until the
fire had been extihguished.
Neither, he added, offered
any help or even approached
him during the fire.
Roy also denied a sugges-
tion that additional help
would have saved any part of
the trailer.
"The dwelling was fully
engulfed when I got there,"
he said, noting that a call his-
tory record sheet from Wal-
ton County Sheriffs Office
(WCSO) confirms that as-
sessment.
That incident, with its con-
flicting stories, highlights
one of the issues at the heart
of the consolidation contro-
versy, that of cooperation
among departments.

The latter program con-
templates the training of fire
fighters in EMS, and EMS
workers in fire fighting.
A county employee, speak-
ing anonymously, predicted
that this cross-training
would lead to "a house di-
vided against itself."
The employee posited a
situation where an EMS/fire
fighter arrives at a scene in
which people are injured and
a fire is burning.
"What does he do?"
The current rules for EMS
ambulances are that every
ambulance must have two
EMS workers.
In the above situation, if an
EMS/fire fighter arrives and
begins fighting the fire, the
two-man rule requires that
a second ambulance and
EMS team must be called.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


PERSONAL COMMENTS



EDITOR'S COMMENT:



Whose turf gets the surf?


By RONa 1\ Ll.f h'.V

In rre. pnsi t-,l the plan hy the Walton County Commis-
i i i C I-' '! i. lit i.ilrds il six areas on our beaches,
both tlhe S.uth \\'.lIon Fii District iS SFDI and Walton
Coutil Sh..,r nl- '0'l'., I WCSO i' presented proposals.
Butli pil' .''' ; li.1.r, th, -r iown advantages.
S\\ !"'D l 12 ',po s 12 lifeguards and a roving supervisor, plus
.1 '., iir e l:l-.t.-ird tt-o.in. It details the lifeguard's du-
(its e-'s,,,i-ilsihlties aind estimated response times. The pro-
posal also promises a junior lifeguard program.
TIh. \\'CSO prtip'jtal recoijmmends si- stationary lifeguards
anl two th.it \.iuld roL.e between all the areas. The WCSO
would also offer a certification class each season, conducted
by the United States Lifeguard Association. Their lifeguards
would be under the supervision of the current beach patrol.
On the surface, the main advantage of the SWFD plan is
two lifeguards at each station, as compared to one under
the WCSO plan. The main advantage in the' WCSO plan
appears to be the significant cost savings.
Many aspects of both plans are the same. Both agencies
have the proper equipment for the task. The training of the
lifeguards would be identical, as both groups would be surf-
trained and certified in the exact same way. There is no
particular advantage to having firefighter lifeguards over
county deputy lifeguards. Both groups have had extensive
rescue experience. The lifeguards are not going to be called
off the beach to go fight a fire any more than they are going
to be called away to investigate a crime. There is no factor
that will make the response time of one group inherently
better than the other.
So, with most things being equal, how will the BCC make
the right choice?
The answer lies in several important factors. One of those
is the fact that there will be vast stretches of beaches that
will still not have lifeguards, so we will still have drownings.
We will likely still have some drownings even on the
stretches that do have lifeguards. That's because lifeguards
can never take the place of common sense and personal re-
sponsibility, any more than a schoolteacher can be expected
to teach a child everything that child will ever need to know
about life that's a parent's job.
We can't expect a teacher in the classroom to raise our



Editor
"We will help you pick the right prescription drug plan for
you" ads are constantly blaring across our TV screens. It
seems that every giant "insurance company," "health care
provider." and "drug company" wants to help America's
Medicare patients select a prescription drug plan that will
provide the most drugs at the least cost, with no cost to the
patient. These companies are spending millions advertis-
ing their "selrice" and our government is paying for their
ads.
Not only is the new prescription drug plan extremely dif-
ficult to understand, but is also unnecessarily expensiveand
ineffective. The unbelievable chaos created for our senior
citizens should be an affront to all Americans. I believe it is
cheaper and simpler for senior citizens to buy their drugs
from Canada than to use this "free" prescription drug
program. Oh wait, I forgot, our congress and president
passed a bill making it illegal to purchase drugs from
Canada.
The most important question we should be asking our-
selves is why do we have a plan that is so convoluted that
almost no one understands it. The reason for this disaster
is that these same companies running the ads to "help" are
also the companies whose lobbyist wrote the bill in the first
place. Is it any wonder the bill requires help from these cor-
porations who are Incessantly advertising free service. Our
tax dollars are working for them, not us. Proving once again,
that most of our "elected representatives" represent their
corporate financiers, not working class Americans.

child anymore than we can depend on a lifeguard to always
be able to protect us from the pitfalls of ignorance and irre-
sponsibility.
I know that Walton County got a black eye when 20/20
came to town with the express purpose of making local lead-
ers look like greedy, uncaring oafs who had never lifted a
finger to make the beaches a safer place.
Locals know better.
Many people think that the lifeguard plan is little more
than a knee-jerk reaction designed to prove that elected of-
ficials care more than the 20/20 show made it appear.
Having lifeguards is fine and I hope it saves lives, but it's
not the be-all, end-all that some would have you think. Most
rescue personnel that I've talked to said the number one
problem in trying to prevent drownings is getting the adults
to comply when directed to get out of the water because of
unsafe conditions. They say that not only do adults not
bother to read the warnings posted at every public beach
(and in tons of other places), people are still wading out into
the surf, even while watching rescuers pull distressed swim-
mers out of the water right next to them.
There's just no antidote for stupidity.
That's an area where having the WCSO provide the life-
guard gives that agency a clear advantage over the SWFD.
It's one thing to refuse direction from a firefighter lifeguard
and tell him that you're not going to get out of the water. It's
another to tell that to a lifeguard who can lock you up. Fur-
ther, if someone is disorderly, acting recklessly or endan-
gering others, there's no need to call a second agency. Any
problem that arises on the beach can be handled by the
WCSO, sparing the SWFD, which is already plenty busy
providing fire protection and EMS service for all of south
Walton.
These things, coupled with a clear and significant cost
savings to the taxpayers, seems to tip the scales in favor of
the WCSO. It's difficult to argue against sound fiscal re-
sponsibility.
Should the BCC finds itself facing an ocean of controversy,
I think the best life preserver this time is the Walton County
Sheriff's Office.


Editor,
Growing up in DeFuniak Springs in the 40s and 50s, I
thought life was easy, laid-back and fun, but I never appre-
ciated what we had in this small town until we retired back
home in 1999. We bought an older home in the historical
district and remodeled it, taking great pride in what we were
doing. We feel we have a treasure because of the painstak-
ing. loving effort put into making this our home.
I feel the same pride when I speak of my tovn. I was not
only proud of my home. but also proud to be back in DeFu-
niak Springs where I grew up. While aw'ay from DeFuniak,
we made many friends who come to visit now. I take them
on tours of our lovely, Victorian town and explain the won-
derful history qfhow we became a town. I enjoy telling them
about the Chautauqua movement in the late 1800s and early
1900s and how we were chosen as the New York Winter Chau-
tauqua. I also enjoy telling about the history of the homes
around the lake.
I love the history of the Chautauqua and what the more
recent Chautauqua Assembly has meant to our culture. I've
been a volunteer with theAssembly since I retired from teach-
ing, and have gained so much knowledge and met so many
wonderful people. What an opportunity for our community
and the surrounding areas! This is definitely an event that
draws people into our area. Why would we even think of
giving this up? Our local government contributes to many
other activities and organizations in the area, and the As-
sembly could be something they could feel proud to be a part
of. I plan to volunteer again this February when the Chau-
tauqua Assembly takes place here in our town. What a shame
for those who show no interest in such a cultural event!

Editor:
In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, so many families
along the coasts of Louisiana and Mississippi were displaced
through the loss of their homes and personal possessions. A
short time after the disaster, Victory Baptist Church was
made aware of one such family There were 13 in all and
included grandparents down to grandchildren. All had been
sheltered at the,National Guard Armory in DeFuniak
Springs.
Victory Baptist Church was privileged to provide this fam-
ily with a five-bedroom home for as long as they would need
it. Other groups, organizations and individuals contributed
greatly to comfort the suffering of this special family.
Whether through donations of needed furniture or cloth-
ing, whether food or toys for the little children, there was
no lack of offered support from Florala, Paxton and DeFu-
niak Springs. Anyone who ever went through a hurricane
knows the stress of "doing without."
Bureaucratic red tape left these folks waiting for weeks
to receive any FEMA assistance. When it came, it was little
and some never saw any help except what was provided by
our communities. And from day one, there was an outpour-
ing of anything needed for them. -
Just recently, this 13-member family relocated to Ari-
.zona, near relatives. One of the last things they said in
departing, and it was with tears that they asked, to send
out a heart-felt thank you on their behalf to every indi-
vidual who was kind to them. Even though they were strang-
ers to the community, they were near kinsmen in their suf-
fering through the storm.
An extra-special thanks to the State Line Antique Mall
for their donation of furniture, to the waitresses of Country
Folks Buffet of Florala for their gifts, to the families and
churches in DeFuniak Springs who helped with the utili-
ties, blankets and food. Many other individuals made it pos-
sible to transition this special family from the chaos of di-
saster to a place of stability and hope; and most of all, the
deeds and prayers of every kind soul will not be forgotten.
"For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my
name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he
shall not lose his reward." Mark 9:41.
Victory Baptist Church
Liberty


Editor:
Christopher Mitchell and WMBB News should be ashamed
at themselves for their so called journalistic integrity in
tonight's (1/19/06) reporting of the Liberty Fire Department.
The story tries to pin the destruction of a home from a fire
on the actions taken by Liberty Fire Department. Christo-
pher asserted that two off-duty firefighters from a separate
fire department stood around and were never asked for help
from Liberty. What Chris doesn't report is how many Lib-
erty firefighters were on scene, how many Liberty appara-
tuses where on scene, and whether or not two additional
personal were needed, or if another fire department was
even needed. He also didn't address the issue as to whether
or not Liberty Chief Roger Roy even had the authority to
grab two bystanders and put them in a fire scene. Liberty
Fire District is a state-recognized independent fire depart-
ment. Liberty is totally independent from the DeFuniak
Springs Fire Department, has its own insurance coverage,
and just can't "deputize" bystanders. Was Chris aware of
this and decided not to report, after all, it doesn't make for a
good story? Probably not, he probably just didn't look into
the matter.
Chris reports that the fire started for unknown reasons.
From my understanding, the State Fire Marshall ruled that
a burner was left on for two hours prior to the fire. Another
convenient tid-bit not to report. But what is really concern-
ing to me is the lack of eye-witnesses Chris interviewed for
this story. He got one, Chief Roger Roy, for whom he was
trying to crucify. Oh, we saw the homeowner on the prop-
erty and heard her opinion, but she wasn't home at the time
of the fire. We saw the DeFuniak Springs Fire Chief and
heard his opinion, but again, he wasn't on scene. Now there
were plenty of witnesses.. The two firefighters Chris men-
tioned, the utility crew that called 911, the ambulance crew
that arrived on scene, the sheriff's deputy on scene, and the
Liberty Firefighters themselves. If Chris reviews the 911
tapes he would understand that three reporting agencies
reported the house was fully involved on arrival. Chris never
even addressed the issue as to whether mutual aid was even
needed. Chris didn't mention that the roof was caving in
when Liberty arrived. He also didn't mention that if a
firefighter were to enter the house they would have caved
through the floor.
The fact of the matter is, the house was gone on arrival.
All the king's horses and all the king's men, or in this case.
'Walton fire departments, could not have put that house back
together again. The Singletar y's suffered a great loss, one
I hope I never have to endure. But Liberty Fire Depart-.
ment did not start the fire. They did not cause the house to
burn down. And they did not call for mutual aid because
mutual aid was not needed.
Christopher Mitchell tries to make the case that Liberty
caused that house to be destroyed due to a political agenda.
The only thing that stinks of a political agenda is Chris's
reporting.

Editor,
This week, the College Avenue Complex Committee will
be considering a number of issues for the community with a
focus on elder citizens. The committee has been formed by
the Walton County Board of County Commissioners (BCC)
to make recommendations for the recreational use of the
county office building known locally as the "Warren Build-
ing." The committee is composed of county and citizen offi-
cials and staff, and community citizens.
Commonly referred to as "senior centers", the state of
Florida has about 260 such facilities. They are operated pri-
vately, by independent county and city departments, and
through county and city joint agreements. Many are sup-
ported by foundations and have advisory boards.
Central Walton County and DeFuniak Springs may be
joining the roster provided a functional plan can be put to-
gether and approved by the BCC. The city of DeFuniak
Springs is expected to be heavily involved as well.
A slide show of senior centers in Tallahassee, Geneva, Flo-
rala, and Pensacola will provide a visual presentation of
small and large facilities. Senior centers vary widely in the
services they provide, and are dependent upon public need
and public support to address just what the population de-
sires.
The opportunity is at hand to encourage the development
of a community focus on the elder population. A safe haven
to provide health, social interaction, education, and recre-
ation opportunities will address a growing need in Walton
County retirement community
The public meeting will be Thursday, January 26, at 5
p.m. at the Church of Christ Fellowship Hall on College Av-
enue. Ideas and suggestions from the public are important
and encouraged J. Buie Hillard
Chairman
College Avenue Complex Committee


Editor,
Many individuals and supporters in DeFuniak Springs
helped make the recent 2005 Annual Tour of Homes a big
success. I wish to express our thanks and appreciation to
everyone for their participation, hard work, and support.
First, a very special thank you to those who shared their
homes so graciously. The homeowners work really hard each
year, giving generously of their time and the expenses that
go along with having homes on tour. Those sharing their
homes on the 2005 tour included Janelle and Landrum
Cawthon, Harley and Melinda Henderson, Ben and Reggie
Irvin, Roy and Voncille McLeod, Bruce and Paulette
Morrison, and Craig and Angel Robinson. Once again, visi-
tors were charmed by the beautiful homes, lavish Christ-
mas decorations, and warm hospitality of the hosts and do-
cents.
Space limitation prevents my naming everyone who con-
tributed time, effort, and means. They include the many
docents who volunteered their time and welcomed our visi-


tors so warmly, the people who sold tickets at the Visitors
Center and the Big Store, the DeFuniak Herald for your
very generous coverage in the weeks leading up to the tour,
WGTX and WZEP for their wonderful help with publicity,
Smith's Signs and Printing for help in printing the needed
materials, and the Walton County Chamber of Commerce
for forwarding inquiries.
Finally, our thanks to the people of DeFuniak Springs and
the out-of-town guests who joined us December 3. Your en-
joyment and enthusiasm added immeasurably to the fes-
tive holiday atmosphere that prevailed throughout the day.
We were especially pleased to see so many DeFuniak Springs
friends take the tour this year. Thank you so much for com-
ing.
Thank you for providing me this opportunity to express
our gratitude and appreciation. Dennis F. Ray,
President

Okaloosa-Walton

College trustees dismiss

symphony conductor


THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JANUARY 26, 2006


By BRUCE COLLIER
The Okaloosa Walton Col-
lege (OWC Board of Trust-
ees ended months of specu-
lation on January 17, voting
unanimously to terminate
Demetrius Fuller's employ-
ment.
Fuller was music director
and conductor of thr N7,1 th-
west Florida Symphony Or-
chestra.
The vote came as part of

attended by members of the
public.
ThIouh Fuller'' itent was
listed among numerous oth-
ers in the consent agenda,
the board agreed to address
the matter out of order, dis-
posing of it before m oving on
to the remainder of the
agenda.
OWC President Robert
Richburg stated the case for
termination. Richburg said
that Fuller had set up a sepa-
rate organization, the North-
west Florida Symphony As-
sociation (NFSA), as well as
a separate bank account, as
"look-alike" organizations.
This, said Richburg, consti-
tuted an impermissible exer-
cise of unilateral financial
authority.
. Further, said Richburg,
Fuller had employed and
sent substitutes to events at
which he was obligated to ap-
pear, likewise exercising uni-
lateral authority.
Fuller did this, said
Richburg, despite being ad-
monished not to do so.
Richburg concluded by say-
ing that Fuller had failed to
appear at a meeting with him
to discuss these matters.
A motion was made to ter-
minate Fuller's employment.
The motion was seconded
and carried unanimously,
without discussion.
No one from the audience
was asked, or offered, to com-
ment in the meeting.
The board then asked its


attorney, Joseph Lorenz, to
take action to "preserve the
integrity of the orchestra."
Lorenz suggested a pos-
sible action with the Florida
Department of State's Divi-
sion of Corporations to re-
scind the fictitious name of
the corporation registered by
Fuller.
The trustees also resolved
to recognize the orchestra as
part of OWC, not anindepen-
dent entity.
Fuller was not present,
having flown to Brazil that
day for a conducting engage-
ment.
Fuller's publicist, Kay
Phelan, had earlier denied
Fuller's failure to meet with
Richburg as intentional.
Fuller said that Richburg
had called to set up a meet-
ing, and that the two had
never agreed on a time.
Phelan has also stated that
the NFSA, doing business as
Northwest Florida Sym-
phony Orchestra (NFSO),
was "created with full knowl-
edge and support of several

of the NFSO's corporate and
private donors, as well as a
number of members of the
Symphony Guild, NFSO mu-
sicians and certain faculty
and' staff members of OWC."
In the meantime, the
Okaloosa County Sheriff's
Office continues its investi-
gation into the orchestra's fi-
nances under Fuller.

that the city council favors
the agreement, but would not
comment specifically until a
final decision was made.
Freeport Fire Chief Ray
Sullivan also declined to com-
ment.
The fire fighters in Liberty
remain cautiously hopeful.
Though the newly revised
contract is an improvement,
Roy said that standardiza-
tion of equipment is still an
issue.
"Overcontrolling" is a word
frequently used at the LFD
firehouse.
"They thought we'djust roll
over on this," said Roy, "but
we have too much pride in'
our department for that."


The Child Advocate


By JULIE HURST, director,
Emerald Coast Children's
Advocacy Center

After the holidays many of
us settle back in our daily
routines I envy those who
do not! It's back to work. It's
back to school. It's back to the
race of getting in all you pos-
sibly can in 24 hours just to
keep up! As I mentioned in
my last column, the holidays
were a time of joy and hope
at the Children's Advocacy
Center. It's not as though the
rest of year won't have
"hope," but we must again
find new ways to bring hope
to children who have none.
We must always be ex-
tremely grateful to have a
place where children can go
to help heal from the hurt.
As we have in the past, we
would like to share informa-
tion on very important chil-
dren issues. The topic I am
about to talk about is very
appropriate as children are
settling back in to school. As
we all know children have
incredible stresses in the
school environment. Right
now many are studying for
the FCAT, if that isn't stress-
ful enough not only for the
kids but for, us parents
too. Children stress trying to
find.where they belong in the
scheme of it all. Some chil-
dren stress because they are
being bullied in school. Last
October the Center hosted a
community education out-
reach program and part of
the curriculum for parents
was bullying presented by
Sgt. Bobby Maloney of the
Okaloosa County Sheriff's
Office. Stats show that be-
tween 15-25 percent of U.S.
students are bullied with
some frequency.
Some tips for children who
are being bullied. First and
foremost tell an adult who
you trust a parent, a
teacher, a coach. Stay in a
group. Kids who bully like to
pick on kids who are by them-
selves. If you are being bul-


Editor,
My friends and fellow senior citizens. This writer has made
every effort to furnish all concerned with the facts as they
relate to the so-called Medicare Prescription Drug Bill pro-
vided by the Republican administration and the for-proflt
corporations. They promised to include a regular Medicare
Preoccupation Drug Program, similar to the part ibi pro-
gram.
The administration has taken senior citizen's money, eSo-
cial Security) money that we senior citizens have worked so
hard for over the many years. If that is not bad enough. the
administration and the for-profit corporations have taken
our money away from the Social Security Administration,
(our money).
The administration states, that; "THERE WILL ALSO BE
MEDICARE PRESCRIPTION DRUG COVERAGE THAT
ADDS COVERAGE TO THE ORIGINAL MEDICARE
PLAN". In plain English, they are saying that there will be
a not-for-profit Medicare plan similar to the Part (B) Plan.
In spite of the fact that it was a part of the Bush law and
also a part of the seniors book. There has been no sign of
such a drug plan, as of this writing.
As of this writing, nothing has been done to provide for
the original prescription drug plans as reported on page 1391
and paragraph 21 of the year 2006.
There will most likely be thousands of patients that may
loose their lives, simply because they will be unable to get
the drugs that they needed. Beginning in 2006, nursing home
patients will only get drugs from lMedicare, not from the
states and nursing homes. Turn to page (2); paragraph (2).
If the above two items are not bad enough, just read the
following: Of the first $2,250 medicare will only pay $1,500.
The senior citizen will pay $750 plus premium of at least
$450 or a total of $1.200, then the next $3.60f0 the -enior
citizen will have to pay it all.

Williams was speaking Monday to another group keen to
find a solution: legislators.
Several lawmakers have been calling for more power lines
to be buried, and at least one bill has been filed to encour-
age, but not require, more lines be put underground.
Estimates for the cost of putting lines underground in older
neighborhoods range from five to ten times the cost of keep-
ing them above ground.
"To me the cost is not an issue," Rep. Julio Robaina, R-
Miami, said during the discussion of the issue Monday in a
joint meeting of the House Domestic Security and Health
Care committees. "The worst thing is if we don't address it
now what it's going to cost businesses, families losing sala-
ries and the problems that occur with the loss of power."
Robaina said over the next decade or so, moving power
lines underground should be a priority for the power com-
panies.
"You wouldn't have to replace 14,000 poles and God knows
how many transformers if you were buried," he said.
In addition to the warnings about cost, power company
officials caution that underground lines aren't completely
fail-safe, although the major electric utilities acknowledge
that in recent hurricanes their buried lines did better than
overhead ones. That's because in most recent storms in
Florida wind has been the biggest problem, not storm surge.
Surge and flooding can be a problem for underground lines.
The transformers for underground lines are at ground level
and sometimes can be damaged by sand or water. Gulf
Power, which series the western Panhandle, did experience
damage to its underground system during Hurricanes Ivan
-in 2004 and Dennis in 2005.
"The storm surge is part of it, but also there's a great deal
of damage that can occur to the underground system when
\we begin the debris removal process," Gulf Power manager
Christie Miree said during the PSC workshop.
The company had problems with transformers being cov-
ered by piles ofdebris, and then destroyed when heavy equip-
ment \was used to remove the debris, Miree said.
And company officials say when underground lines are
damaged, it takes longer to fix them.
"In the underground, you don't know what you have,"
Williams told the legislative panel. "You don't know where
the break is. You don't know w hat the nature of the problem
is. It takes much longer to diagnose the problem and be
able to correct it."

FREEPORT MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS RUNS
CANNED FOOD DRIVE. Two weeks before Christmas, when
most are doing Christmas shopping and making wish-lists
of what they want from Santa, Judy Frost, a student at
Freeport Middle School, was thinking of how she could help
others.
Judy, 13, put together a holiday canned food drive through
her student-led Youth for Christ Club at FMS. "I was won-
dering how the group could help the community, and Ifound
out that the Presbyterian Church was in need of canned foods
for their food shelf," she said.
The school collected over 1,430 cans to be donated to the
church.

Pilot Club
hosting brain
awareness-
conference
Parenting in today's world
is a very tough job. No one
can deny it. Even the
straight-A model student has
bad days at home. The stu-
dent is sometimes moody,
seems stressed, and causes a
parent to wonder what is go-
ing on inside their head.
Then there is the student
who just never seems to fit
the mold, the four-year-old
who does not seem to respond
to any type of discipline, a
teenager who is always
moody or has a veny negative
attitude, or the three-year-
old who just doesn't talk.
Help is available through
the Brain Awareness Confer-
ence, sponsored by the DeFu-
niak Springs Pilot Club. Pro-
fessionals will be speaking on
a variety of topics, including
teenage depression, raising
drug free kids, medical basis
ofADHD, and understanding
autism. Additional presenta-
tions will include tips for day
to day living and opportuni-
ties for parents to exchange
ideas.
Professionals will also
present sessions on under-
standing developmental dis-
abilities, with a special panel
providing information on re-
sources available to develop-
mentally disabled persons
from preschool through the
later adult years. Other top-
ics include Alzheimer's and
Parkinson disease, traumatic
brain injury, strokes, chemi-
cal dependency, and other
neurological disorders.
The conference will be held
on Saturday, February 11,
2006, from 9 a.m. until 3
p.m., at the Freeport High
School, Freeport, FL. Ad-
vance registration fee is $5,
which includes morning cof-

Things

By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC

There are so many things available to occupy our minds. But
as I serve the Lord, He has led me to seek two things in particu-
lar: knowing the heart of God, and knowing my own heart in
God's light.
Jesus came to pray and be strengthened. He was emotionally
and physically depleted after a week of bad news. John the Bap-
tist, his companion and cousin was beheaded, and now a multi-
tude was waiting to be-fed. Not once but many times the fish and
loaves were multiplied (Mk. 6:41-2). He gave a sustaining miracle,.
but there was no miracle sustaining Him except His love for
people. So I too must love people. At the same time as I draw
near to God's heart, the very fire of His presence begins a deep
purging work within. Psa. 24:3-4 tells that we cannot climb
higher in God, if there is deceit in ourhearts. We must walk into
a furnace of truth where falsehood is extracted from our hearts-
for they shall see the Lord. It is only the pure in heart who per-
ceive God. Each ascending step upon the hill of God is a thrust-
ing of our souls into greater transparency, a more perfect view
into the motives of our hearts. God grant us a zeal for truth that
we may stand in Your Holy Place!

Steven "Stevie" Carroll*
Dec. 18, 1979-Jan. 27, 2003

f Your gentle face and patient smile
with sadness we recall
You had a kindly word for each
and died beloved by all.

The voice is mute and stilled the heart,
That loved us well and true,
Ah, bitter was the trial to part
From one eso good as you.

You are not forgotten loved one
Nor will you ever be,
As long as life and memory last
We will remember thee.

We miss you now, our hearts are sore,
As time goes by we miss you more,
Your loving smile, your gentle face,
No one can fill your vacant place.

We love you and miss you very much.

Always in our thoughts,
Forever in our hearts,

Science

Fair at

Maude

Saunders
The annual science fair
was held at Maude Saunders
Elementary School the weekk
of December 5-9, 2005. Stu-
dents in kindergarten
through fifth-grade entered
120 individual projects in the
fair this year. Twenty w hole-
class projects were also dis-
played. A total of 460 stu-
dents were involved in the
fair.
Individual students that
entered a project were inter-
viewed by judges who asked
the students about their
projects, as well as gave them
advice, instruction, and en-
couragement. Most of these
projects included backboard
displays, research, and jour-
nals. The projects were dis-
played in the school's physi-
cal education building and
viewed by most of the stu-
dents and teachers on
Wednesday and Thursday.
Lesa Harrison served as
coordinator of the Mlaude
Saunders Elementary School
Science Fair. Marsha Russell
and Rita Wilkerson assisted
with the set up of fair
projects.
The awards ceremony was
held in the school's multi-
purpose room on the night of
December 8 as the Parent/
Teacher Organization (PTO)
gave cash awards to the top
five winners in each category.
Each participant received a
ribbon. First place winners
also received medals. Maude
Saunders' principal, Sonya
Alford, recognized the
Principal's Award winner,
Jacob Johnson.
Special trophies were pre-
sented to students with the
best overall project in three
areas: in kindergarten to
first-grade, Darien Mason; in
second and third-grades.
Tyler Wood; in fourth and
fifth-grades, Jonathan
Nguyen.

By DOTTYNIST

Almost all ofthe extensive
large-scale amendment
package approved by the
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) on Nov. 28 of last year
has found favor with the
state, but two amendments
were said to be not in com-
pliance.
The amendment package
consisted of county responses
to two state objections, rec-
ommendations and com-
ments (ORC) reports, future
land use map (FLUM)
amendments affecting thou-
sands of acres, and text
amendments supporting
FLUM amendments.
The ORC reports were
state responses to previous
Walton County submittals.
The amendments were
adopted by ordinance by the
county on Nov. 28.
Following the approval of
the amendment package by
the BCC, it was transmitted
to the state for review.
On Jan. 12, the state De-
partment of Community Af-
fairs (DCA) gave notice of its
intent to find the comprehen-
sive plan amendments
adopted by the county on
Nov. 28 in compliance, with
the exception of two amend-
ments.
DCA signaled intent to
find Ordinance Number
2005-34 and Ordinance
2005-32 not in compliance.
There has as yet been no ex-
planation of the reasons why
these ordinances are viewed
as noncompliant.


Ordinance Number 2005-
34 provides for an exemption
to traffic concurrency re-
quirements in some circum-
stances for affordable hous-
ing developments. There has
been wide support for afford-
able housing in the commu-
nity, and the ordinance was
not controversial when it was
considered locally.
Opinions on the other or-
dinance, Number 2005-32,
were less harmonious.
Proposed to bring A-zone
(100-year floodplain) con-
struction standards in line
with Flood Insurance Pro-
gram standards, the ordi-
nance was opposed by the
South Walton Community
Council (SWCC) because it
would allow A-zone property
to develop at the underlying
density of the land use cat-
egory, as long as other code
requirements were met. In
the case of the Village Mixed
Use category, this could re-
sult in as much as 12 units
per acre.
The 100-year floodplain is
a FEMA designation refer-
ring to a flood that has a one-
percent or greater chance of
being equaled or exceeded in
a given year. In Walton
County, these floodplains are
located along the gulf, north
and south of the
Choctawhatchee Bay, along
creeks and bayous, and in
low-lying areas. The Walton
County Planning Depart-
ment has estimated that
there may be approximately
6,220 acres of 100-year flood-
plain within the county.
Currently property in the


100-year floodplain can de-
velop at only a rate of one
unit per 20 acres or one
single-family home per lot of
record.
The stated rationale for
the amendment was that the
current strict provisions de-
creasing available density in
the 100-year floodplain re-
sult in many property own-
ers filling their sites in order
to remove them from the A-
zone regulations in order to
get more density, thus in-
creasing flooding on neigh-
boring properties.
Filling and removing
property from the floodplain
can be done in a FEMA pro-
cess known as a Conditional
Letter of Map Amendment
(CLOMA).
While almost everyone,
including the SWCC, agrees
that additional density is
advisable in the A zone, al-
lowing the full underlying
density has been criticized as
excessive.
Anita Page, SWCC execu-
tive director, has called for
additional analysis to deter-
mine the amount of density
that can be allowed in the
100-year floodplain without
its function being degraded.
Allen Ficarra suggested a
two-unit-per-acre cap on den-
sity in the A zone plus a pro-
vision to prohibit filling to
increase density.
In response to complaints
that nothing in the ordinance
would discourage developers
from using fill, District 3
Commissioner Larry Jones
added a provision to cap al-
lowable density at 50 percent


of underlying density on
property that is filled. He
specified that the provision
would apply to filling for
homes but not to driveways
and other construction that
cannot be built on pilings.
An alternative suggestion
by District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows was to dis-
allow filling of the 100-year
floodplain and let developers
transfer density from one
part of their property to an-
other up to a certain density
cap.
County Planning Director
Pat Blackshear warned that
a restrictive policy like this
would result in more devel-
opers completely filling their
property to get it removed
from the special floodplain
regulations.
The ordinance as pro-
posed, including Jones' pro-
posed change, was approved
in a 3-to-1 vote, with Mead-
ows voting in opposition and
District 4 Commissioner Ro
Cuchens not present.
Administrative hearings
are an option when the state
finds amendments not in
compliance. In some cases
the state has also approved
amendments initially found
to be noncompliant following
stipulated settlements with
the county
Affected members of the
public are allowed a 21-day
period from the publication
of the state's notice of intent
(Jan. 12) to file an objection
to the state's decision. In the
absence of that, the amend-
ments found in compliance
would become final.


Equipment arrives for Walton County beach project


By DOTTY NIST

A bulldozer to be used in
the beach restoration project
getting started on the west
end of the Walton County
coast was delivered on Jan.
23, according to Brad Pickel,
beach management director
for the South Walton Tourist
Development Council (TDC).
On Jan. 24, Pickel pro-
vided a late update on the
long-awaited beach nourish-
ment effort.


Pickel said he expects ad-
ditional equipment and pipe-
line to be used in the project
to be delivered through Jan.
29 and be assembled and
placed in the construction
area during that week.
During the week of Jan.
30, the pipeline installation
and assembly of other items
necessary for construction
are scheduled to be com-
pleted. The dredge Liberty
Island is also scheduled to
arrive and begin pumping


sand through a submerged
pipeline onto the critically
eroded beaches during that
week. Restoration is to be-
gin at Sandestin Golf and
Beach Resort about 1,000
feet west of Finz restaurant,
Pickel explained.
The Sandestin beach is at
the longest distance from the
borrow site (Destin's East
Pass ebb shoal) within the
project area. This is a joint
endeavor between Walton
County and the city of


Destin, with about five miles the western boundary ofTop-

WALTON COUNTY CODE ENFORCEMENT placed a
Jan. 11 stop work order requiring all activity to cease on this
East Nursery Road lot. A large amount of fill dirt had been
placed on the site without the requisite county permit. Billy
McKee, Walton County environmental planner, also deter-
mined that a small portion of wetlands on the lot had been
impacted due to the fill work. McKee will assist in determin-
ing what corrective measures will be required when code
enforcement issues a letter of violation to the property owner
Walton County Code Enforcement Coordinatior Kevin
Hargett said that the owner has been cooperative and has
pledged to cease all work until he is advised of county re-

Seaside celebrates the arts


The town of Seaside will
celebrate the arts during the
final t. eek of January when
The Seaside Institute hosts
a series of free programs
highlighting creative works
by the artists-in-residence of
Escape to Create.
SOn Thursday, Jan. 26 at 7
p.m. in the Lyceum Meeting
Room, two writers will read
from their works of fiction.
Alabama writer Loretta
Cobb's debut short story col-
lection, The Ocean Was Salt,
was reviewed by author Pat
Conroy as a "... [collection] so
sassy and crystalline and
wise that you feel like stand-
ing up and applauding." Told
with wisdom and humor,
Cobb's stories are a celebra-
tion of the rights of passage
that define the human expe-
rience, Conroy said.
Without exception, Chicago


writer Lee Reilly's main char-
acters are women. The au-
thor of Women Living Single
and Teaching Maggie: Let-
ters on Life, Writing and the
Virtues ofSolid Food, Reilly's
work has been reviewed as
"beautifully written,
thought-provoking" work
imbued with a "unique blend
of wisdom and wit..." Often
edged with a pointed humor
and sharp insight, Reilly's
fiction deftly captures the
rich interior lives of her char-
acter.
On Friday, Jan. 27 from 6-
8 p.m., the works of the four
visual artists will be exhib-
ited during a wine and hours
