Freeport moratorium on




annexation remains in place


By BEN GRAFTON
At the regular Freeport
City Council meeting on Jan.
26. Mike Heard. saying that
he understood the city had
put a moratorium on annex-
ing additional property until
after the Walton County
large scale amendment was
approved, continued by say-
ing the amendment was ap-
proved and asking that the
ban be lifted. Council mem-
bers and staff replied saying
that all of the provisions of
the amendment were nqt ap-
proved and that the city
would not lift the morato-
rium until complete approval
was final. Mayor Micky
Marse said that prior to lift-
ing the ban, a workshop
would be scheduled to con-
sider current issues.

City Planner Latilda
Henninger opened the busi-
ness portion of the meeting
with a presentation of the
first reading for a proposed
small scale amendment and
zoning change for a 4.18 acre
parcel about 1.5 miles north
of SR- 20 on the east side ofA
U.S. 331.
The action, requested by
the Stonebridge developers,
would change the zoning to
established residential R-3,
which allows development
density of up to fourteen
units per acre. This parcel is
about one-half of the total


property to be developed.
A local resident, without
objecting to the proposal, ad-
dressed the council saying
that a letter sent out by the
developers was confusing,
that acreages and building
densities cited were inconsis-
tent and that a corrected
copy should be issued. .
Rickey Smith, a partner in
the development, addressed
the issue saying that the ac-
tual development density
averaged 6.13 units per acre
and that the total property
size, 7.53 acres, stated in the
referenced letter had been
enlarged by 1.6 acres as the
result of the purchase of the
Kidwell property.
Henninger said that mate-
rial submitted to her office
indicated the total property
size was 8.78 acres. She also
said that as of this date, the
development plan has not
been reviewed.
Noting that the issue be-
fore the council only ad-
dressed the 4.18 acre parcel
zoning change, the first read-
ing and advertising to have
the second reading at the
council meeting of Feb. 14
were approved.
The Riverwalk planned de-
velopment project resolution,
reviewed at the meeting of
Jan.10 but carried over to
tonight's meeting because of
an administrative oversight,
was presented and approved


by the council.
Henninger then presented,
a request for approval of the
Marina Village planned de-
velopment project. This is a
60 acre parcel offofBay Loop
road which will be developed
with 120 residential units
and approximately five per-
cent commercial property.
Henninger said the project
met all criteria and was rec-
ommended for approval by
the planning board and staff.
The council approved the
project.
The plat for the Ashton
Park Subdivision phase one
(also known as The Pines,
phase one) was submitted.
The c council approved accep-
tance.
Henninger advised the
council that a very important
"joint school concurrency"
meeting was scheduled for 3
p.m. on Feb. 7 and urged
members to attend. This
meeting addresses the re-
quirement to make certain
that as new developments
are built, the availability of
schools is adequate. The
meeting will ratify a joint
agreement for Walton
County.
The official notice has been
received from the Depart-
ment of Community Affairs
(DCA) that Freeport has
been designated as a rural
area of critical economic con-
cern. Although this status


grants the city more freedom
to make decisions affecting
development, it must stay in
very close contact, including
an annual report, with the
West Florida Regional Plan-
ning Council and the DCA
about development matters.
Henninger reminded the
council that Jan. 27 marked
the first anniversary of her
employment by the city of
Freeport. She expressed her
appreciation for the opportu-
nity to the council and Mayor
Marse saying she feels
needed and that she is mak-
ing a difference.
She then presented an an-
nual report of her activities
providing an impressive list-
ing of small and large scale
amendments, zoning
changes, pre-application
conferences and other mat-
ters handled by her office.
City Attorney Clayton
Adkinson commented briefly
that the city wias being sued
by a contractor over a road
construction job.The city will
file a counter-claim for liqui-
dated damages, alleging that
the contractor did not finish
the job.
City Engineer Charles Pe-
ters reported that bids rang-
ing from more than $500,000
to over $700,000 have been
received for Phase one of the
sewer project that will serve
the Bay Grove and Mallet
Bayou areas. Carter Contrac-


tors of Andalusia, Alabama,
is the low bidder. This phase
of the project will see the in-
stallation of about 42 percent
of the sewer lines required.
Phase two, yet to come,
will provide for the main out-
fall and will include more
large diameter pipe at pro-
portionally higher cost. The
council approved making no-
tification of the award.
Peters is prepared to send
notice to Bay Loop residents
that installed sewer line is
available for use. He stated
that the user agreements
will address charges and the
need for a "grinder"station.
Councilman Earl King re-
ported that the low bid for a
new dump truck did not meet
the city's specifications. As a
result he recommended that
the city buy a Freightliner
truck bid by a dealer in
Dothan, AL. The council ap-
proved the recommendation.
Delivery is expected in 90 to
120 days.
Robin Haynes has satisfac-
torily completed her proba-
tionary period and is now
employed as the city clerk.
Marse, after reporting that
contract boring under road-
ways for access of utility pip-
ing was running between
$600 and $1,200 per job,
asked for approval to go out
for bids to purchase a road
boring machine. Council ap-
proved his request.


The subject of meal allow-
ances for employees travel-
ing on city business has cone
up before but was never
acted on. Now, after review-
ing state of Florida allow-
ances, the council has ap-
proved an average rate of $50
per day.
Arthur Hill, representing
interests of a major develop-
ment plan (Palm Shadow, 46
acres on the west side of U.S.
331. Application filed on
November 11) said he would
like to find some "proactive
way" to move ahead and find
a solution to the time re-
quired to process technical
development proposals. He
said he felt sure that devel-
opers would support a
"healthier fee".

Henninger said that a
larger permanent staffwould
help the situation. Council-
woman Jean Arrant ex-
pressed concern over the per-
ception that developers
would fund staff positions.
Consultant Jack Rhodes took
exception to Hill's comments.
Rhodes thinks reports are
coming out as a "timely pro-
cess' and that the city should
handle staffing issues
through normal planning
and budgets. Hill said he
agreed with Rhodes' com-
ments and that he just
wanted to find a way to help
improve turn-around times.

EDITOR'S COMMENT:



Points to ponder

By RON KELLEY
As the editor of this county's oldest and largest newspa-
per, I take serious my responsibilities and.duties to you,
Faithful Reader. However, today let us take a brief respite
from the often alarming and complex events that have been
occurring in the United States and around the world.
I am blessed with friends of profound wit and wisdom who
freely share their thoughts and discoveries with me. I have
gathered together the very best of these clever offerings to
share with you.
For instance, did you hear the one about the two anten-
nas who met on a roof, fell in love and got married? The
ceremony wasn't much, but the reception was excellent.
Two hydrogen atoms walk into a bar. One says, "I've lost
my electron." The other says, "Are you sure?" The first re-
plies, "Yes, I'm positive..."
Ajumper cable walks into a bar. The bartender says, "I'll
serve you, but don't start anything."
A sandwich walks into a bar. The bartender says, "Sorry,
we don't serve food in here."
A dyslexic man walks into a bra...
Two cannibals are eating a clown. One says to the other:
"Does this taste funny to you?"


An invisible man marries an invisible woman. The kids
were nothing to look at either.
Dijon vu the feeling that you've had this same mustard
before.
Deja Mu is the feeling that you've heard this bull before.
I went to buy some camouflage trousers the other day, but
I couldn't find any.
I went to the butcher the other day and tried to bet him
$50 that he couldn't reach the meat off the top shelf, but he
said, "No, the steaks are too high."
Those who jump off a bridge in Paris are in Seine.
A backward poet writes inverse.
Shotgun wedding: A case of wife or death.
A hangover is the wrath of grapes.
Dancing cheek-to-cheek is really a form of floor play.
Does the name Pavlov ring a bell?
When two egotists meet, it's always an I for an I.
What's the definition of a will? It's a dead giveaway.
She was engaged to a boyfriend with a wooden leg, but
broke it off.
A chicken crossing the road is poultry in motion.
With her marriage, she got a new name and a dress.
Good news! The man who fell into an upholstery machine
is fully recovered.
You'll be stuck with your debt if you can't budge it.
He often broke into song because he couldn't find the key.
A midget fortune-teller who escapes from prison is a small
medium at large.
Once you've seen one shopping center, you've seen a mall.
Acupuncture is a jab well done.
Those who get too big for their britches will be exposed in
the end. Finally, let me close with a
few more points to poinder.

Ten Commandments in a
courthouse? The reason you
can't post "Thou Shalt Not
Steal" and "Thou Shall Not
Lie" in a building full of law-
yers, judges, and politicians
is because it creates a hostile
work environment.
Is it just me, or does any-
one else find it amazing that
our government can track a
cow born in Canada almost
three years ago, right to the
stall where she sleeps in the
state of Washington, and can
track her calves to their
stalls. But they are unable to
locate 11 million illegal aliens
wandering around our coun-
try. Maybe we should give
them all a cow.
They keep talking about
drafting a constitution for
Iraq. Why don't we.justgive,
them ours? It was written by
a lot of really brilliant people
and its worked for over 200
years. Besides, we're not us-
ing it anymore.


Dear Editor,
Mr. Bush, Mr. Cheney and Mr. Rove are attempting to re
frame the NSA surveillance on American citizens by chang-
ing the terminology from "Domestic Spying" to "Terrorist
Surveillance." They are also making the case that if this
policy were in place prior to 9-11 the attack by terrorists
could have been averted.
I find this hard to believe. Consider this: According to the
9-11 Commission Report no less than 36 times during the
spring and summer of 2001, the Presidential Daily Brief-
ings referenced Bin Laden or al Qaeda. On June 6, 2001 the
report entitled "Bin Laden Determined to Strike in US" was
presented at the PDB.
If these detailed warnings to the Bush administration did
not spur them to avert the attacks on us, I find it hard to
believe that their listening in on your phone calls to Aunt
Martha will provide any additional protection.
Please urge your elected representatives to stop King
George before he gets any more out of control.
Bob Knott
Freeport



Editor:
DeFuniak Springs needs some kind of animal control to
prevent animal cruelty.
Right there on 1302 Baldwin Ave. is some dogs on chains
with pieces of decking to get out of the weather. That is
animal cruelty. Some of the dogs act vicious, which is a
danger to the public.

WALTON COUNTY THIS MONTH



The Walton County Finance Division seeks to serve the best interest of the citizens and taxpayers of Walton County
by preparing and submitting budgets that are timely and responsive and by obtaining goods and services that achieve
the proper balance of quality and price; to research and secure alternative funding sources for projects of sigifi- l
chance to Walton County; to provide quality communications that keep pace with technological improvements; to'
monitor contracts and agreements entered into by the County to ensure that special provisions are met, renewal is
timely and that appropriate financing is available; and to secure reimbursement of ambulance service costs.


Wanda Smith, Chief Budget Analyst, Bill Imfeld, Finance Director and
Deanna Hayward, Assistant Budget Analyst. Imfeld says their top pri-
ority is to ensure the budget is in compliance with state statutes and
represents an efficient and effective expenditure of the taxpayers money'

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 2006


The stress of giving care

to be discussed at annual

Brain Awareness Conference


Many spouses and adult
children are faced with the
stress of care giving and mak-
ing decisions in legal and fi-
nancial matters when loved
one are affected by stroke,
Alzheimer's disease, and
other forms of dementia. To
learn how to cope with care-
giver stress and receive tips
on care giving and informa-
tion about legal and financial
issues facing families, the
public is invited to attend the
second annual Brain Aware-
ness Conference, sponsored
by the Pilot Club ofDeFuniak
Springs, to be held at Free-
port High School on Feb. 11.
The conference will focus,


first, and foremost, on fami-
lies affected by brain related
disorders. In addition to the
seminars on care giving, pro-
fessionals will present ses-
sions on what care givers
need to know about stroke,
seizures, ADHD, autism, de-
velopment disabilities, recog-
nizing and treating depres-
sion, anxiety/panic disorders,
traumatic brain injury,
therapy and brain disorders.
A panel will provide infor-
mation on services available
to developmentally disabled
persons from preschool
through adulthood, and infor-
mation on transitioning from
one level to the next. The


seminars will offer CEU'
credit to health care profes-
sionals and mental health
professionals and in-service
to credit to classroom teach-
ers. Information exhibits
from health care related
agencies will be available be-
fore the first session and dur-
ing the lunch hour. Skilled
respite care will also be avail-
able for all ages.
Advance registration is $5;

tional $15 and exhibitor
space is $25.
For more information or to
receive a registration form,

American Heart Month

recognizes National Wear Red Day


In efforts to support Ameri-
can Heart Month, the Florida
Department of Health (DOH)
joins the American Heart As-
sociation (AHA) and National
Heart, Lung and Blood Insti-
tute (NHLBI) in recognizing
National Wear Red Day on
Feb. 3.
"National Wear Red Day is
a great opportunity to edu-
cate women in Florida and
inform them about preven-
tion of heart disease and
heart attacks," said DOH
Deputy Secretary for Health
and State Public Health
Nursing Director Nancy
Humbert, M.S.N., A.R.N.P.
"We urge Floridians to join us
in promoting healthy hearts."
Heart disease is the num-
ber one cause of death for
women over the age of 25. For
many people, the first symp-
tom of heart disease is a heart
attack. Therefore, every
woman should know how to
identity the symptoms of .
heart attack and iow to get
immediate medical help. In
2004, heart attacks were the
leading cause of death for
women, claiming 10,151
women in Florida.
Many heart attacks start
slowly as mild pain or discom-
fort. The most common warn-
ing signs for men and women
are:
Chest discomfort uncom-
fortable pressure, squeezing,
fullness or pain in the center
of the chest. The discomfort
may be mild or severe, may
last a few minutes or may
come and go.
Upper body discomfort -
pain or discomfort in one or
both arms, back, neck, jaw or
stomach.
Shortness of breath this
may occur along with or with-
out chest discomfort.
Other symptoms nausea,
light-headedness or cold
sweats.
Women are somewhat more,
likely than men to experience
some of the other common
symptoms, particularly short-
ness of breath, vomiting, nau-
sea and back or jaw pain.
For more information
about heart disease, please

people that are tired of going to church and leaving the same way you

God, in a time that you need Him the most? That maybe if you could just
get to Him, so many things in your life would change? Have you been hurt;
by so called Christians, and now you won't even go into the house of God?.
Do you have so many questions and no answers? There is a church you can
come to and not be judged by what you're wearing or what mistakes you've
made..Jesus says to come as you are, not come when you're perfect. If any
of these.things apply to you, we invite you to come and get the answers
you need, come and get to Jesus. After all, you are hungry, aren't you? Take

I come to the garden alone
While the dew is still on the roses
And the voice I hear,
falling on my eatr
The Son of God discloses.
And He walks with me,
And He talks with me,
And He tells me I am His own,
And the joy we share
as we tarry there.
None other has ever known.
C. Austin Miles author
We miss you so much and you %will be in our
hearts forever.

If Only
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
1 Pastor, Freeport UMC
This is a statement of regret. We all live life with "if
only" embedded within our soul. The heart longs for the
"if only's" to become dethroned, deterred, and denounced.
Our hearts long to seize the moments to love, relate and
release. The heart of humanity longs for eternal moments
of deep sharing with God,
The only difference in the eternal "if only," and other "if
only's" is destiny. We cannot do away with the bad deci-
sions that we have made, but we can learn from the "if
only" of regret. Paul had some "if only" moments in his
life, but after meeting Christ, continual sanctification and
holiness with God, Paul was re-shaped. He embraced the
crucified life, he could do all things through Christ, and
learned that real contentment was in intimacy with
Christ.
"If only" will exist less in our lives as we spend time in
prayer, witnessing, attending Church and devouring His
Word. We will certainly grow in our fellowship with Christ
and all believers as we love Christ supremely.
Come worship with us at the dynamic Freeport UMC,
Sunday 10 a.m., 6 p.m. Sunday Evening, and Wednesday
6 p.m.; Sounds Of The Spirit-WZEP 1460 7:05-7:30a.m.

By CHUCK HINSON
The state of Mississippi
has has had it for years and
17 other states have, too.
Junior college football is the
latest sports that some mem-
bers of the Florida government
are advocating.
I went to a junior college in
Mississippi and nothing was
more exciting, when they
were winning, than going to a
Saturday afternoon football
game. It was like a Friday
night high school game, but
without the parents. It was
the excitement of watching a
college team, while still with-
out all the crowds and long
ticket lines.
Junior college football had
a lot of good attributes and
was a good reference for both
players and students, to pre-
pare them for the university
athletic scene.
Legislation proposed by
Rep. Bob Henriquez and co-
sponsored by Ray Sansom, R-
Destin, would amend a sub-
section of Florida statutes to
give .community college
presidents and their trustees
authority to administer the
school's athletics program,
including football.
Rep. Henriquez said that
the amendment would not
require junior colleges to
have a football program, but
would give them the option.
It is reported that start-up
cost for a school wishing to
begin a program could be be-
tween $176,000 and
$212,000.
Budgets for existing junior
coolege programs overseen
by the NJCAA range from
$90,000 to $632,650, depend-
ing in what part of the state,
the size of the college and the
number of athletic programs
already being offered.
OWC currently offers men
and women's basketball,
baseball and softball. The
budget for those four pro-
grams is already at $800,000.
Administrators say that
with the start-up cost includ-
ing uniforms, a staff, and
facility, the cost would be
extremely expensive. This
does not include scholarships
that would be given to play
football.
There are currenlty 17
states that offer junior col-
lege football. There are 73
junior college programs that
are are monitored and sanca-
tioned by the NJCAA which
conducts a postsesason bowl
system.
In the South, football pro-
grams are the biggest at-
tended sport and biggest
money maker for both high
school and college level. De-
spite the programs that


could be established in the
state's junior colleges, and
the money that could be
made from ticket sales and
gate fees, the sport is un-
likely to see anything hap-
pen in the state of Florida for
some time.

A TREMENDOUSAMOUNT of residential development has taken place in Walton County
over recent years, and the trend continues. The state Department of Community Affairs is
worried that residential over-allocation could create urban sprawl and other problems.


Walton residential


developments worry state


By DOTTY NIST
The state of Florida has
deemed compliant recently
submitted large-scale
amendments reclassifying
the land use of thousands of
acres in Walton County. Most
of the amendments were to
allow for residential develop-
ment or to increase allowable
density on properties in-
tended for residential devel-
opment.
However, in conjunction
with the finding pf ppmpli-
ance, the state Department
of Community Affairs (DCA)
has expressed concern "about
the amount of residential
development that could occur
as related to these amend-
ments."
In a Jan. 11 letter to Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC), Chair-'
man Scott Brannon, yalerie
J. Hubbard, DCA director of
community planning,
warned that it will be "diffi-
cult" for the county to "jus-
tify additional amendments
to increase residential devel-
opment until a needs assess-
ment has been conducted."
The letter was discussed at
the Jan. 24 Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners meeting.
Signaling the possibility of
an over-allocation of residen-
tial development on the
county's future land use map
(FLUM,) DCA warned that
results of that situation could
be urban sprawl and ''the in-
ability to provide urban ser-
vices and facilities to main-'
tain these facilities and ser-
vices at the adopted level of
service."
Walton County is required
to adopt an evaluation and
appraisal report (EAR) by
August 1. An EAR reports on
ways to revise a county's


comprehensive plan to better
address community objec-
tives and serves as a mea-
sure of a local government's
success in addressing issues
that are important to the
community in its comprehen-
sive plan.
Hubbard encouraged Wal-
ton County to "examine ur-
ban growth strategies" as
part of the EAR, as the
county had previously indi-
cated would be done. Part of
that examination is to be a
"needs analysis" to evaluate
whether the FLUM is in fact
over-allocated and, if so, pos-
sible remedies.
Hubbard "strongly sug-
gested" that no "proposed or
adopted future land use map
amendments" be transmitted
until the EAR was found to
be sufficient.
Only two of the recently
submitted large-scale
amendments were found not
in compliance by the state.
One of those would have pro-
vided.an exemption for traf-
fic concurrency on affordable
housing projects. Hubbard
stated that the amendment
was turned down because
state law has no specific pro-
vision to allow for such an
exception.
The other amendment
found not in compliance en-
compassed new language
that would have allowed ad-
ditional density in the 100-
year floodplain.
"(T)he department is con-
cerned that the floodplain
policies could adversely im-
pact floodplain function as
well as place more people and
property in areas subject to
flooding," Hubbard wrote. '
DCA's recommendation
with regard to the 100-year
floodplain was to maintain
current provisions, which


limit development there to
one dwelling unit per 20
acres or one structure per lot
of record.
Pat Blackshear told the
commissioners that waiting
until the EAR was adopted
would present "a huge road-
block" for additional large-
scale comprehensive plans
amendments that property
owners are eager to have ap-
proved. She did not think
they letter was referring to
small-scale amendments,
which apply to parcels of ten
acres or less. She interpreted
DCA's main concern to be
large-scale amendments that
would generate traffic im-
pacts or affect infrastructure.
She was hopeful that some
large-scale amendments, es-
pecially those providing for
the dire need of affordable
housing, could find favor
with the state in spite of the
strong letter.
Blackshear recommended
focusing on the most impor-
tant needs in the county
when looking at amend-
ments to propose, in light of
the DCA letter. She sug-
gested moving forward with
neighborhood plans, which
could be handled as overlays
and would probably not re-
quire comprehensive plan
amendments.
The commissioners con-
curred with Blackshear's
suggestions to concentrate on
land use amendments for af-
fordable housing projects and
on neighborhood planning
areas. They also directed
moving forward with work by
county planning consultants
the Genesis group to revamp
the county's traffic
concurrency management
system. This effort,

BCC vote

sets the

stage for

lifeguards

By DOTTY NIST
Lifeguards will be a real-
ity this spring on some Wal-
ton County beaches due to a
Jan. 24 vote by the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC).
In a split vote, the commis-
sioners gave the South Wal-
ton Fire District (SWFD) the
go-ahead to set up the
county's first lifeguard pro-
gram, a pilot one. The service
is to begin in early March
2006 with lifeguard stands at
six regional public beach ac-
cesses. Lifeguard service
would continue through
Sept. 2006.
When proposals for provid-
ing this service were re-
quested in December 2005,
there was no shortage of com-
petition for the task. Propos-
als were submitted by the
Walton County Sheriffs Of-
fice, the SWFD, and a private
business. The former two en-'
titles were already involved
in beach rescue.
The Jan. 24 vote was in
line with a recommendation
by Walton County's Beach
Safety and Education Com-
mittee, which was asked to
review the proposals.
Rankings by the committee
put the fire district at the top
of the list, but its report also
identified advantages of the
sheriffs office as a choice, one
being the authority to re-
move people from the beach
when necessary. The pro-
posal by the private vendor
was viewed as ambiguous.
On Jan. 10, the BCC had
put off a vote on the matter.
The SWFD and sheriffs of-
fice proposals had called for
a different number of person-
nel. The SWFD proposal
called for 12, two to a life-
guard stand, and the sheriffs
office proposed eight, six to
man the towers and two rov-
ing lifeguards. The commis-
sioners wanted to make sure
they were comparing equiva-
lent proposals when looking
at proposed costs. They asked
for additional analysis by
staff and the committee.
On Jan. 24, Bill Imfeld,
county finance director, re-
ported that both proposals
complied with the bid speci-
fications for personnel. There
would not be a large cost dif-
ference between them, factor-
ing in two lifeguards for each
tower, he noted. He called
the SWFD and the sheriffs
office "two very capable orga-
nizations."

Uncovering the


past, protecting


the future


By LEAH STRATMANN
A packed house filled the
meeting room at the Coastal
Branch Library last week
when the South Walton Com-
munity Council welcomed
registered archaeologist
Greg Mikell. Many of those
in the audience brought cen-
turies old artifacts and repro-
ductions of tools used by cul-
tures either passing through
or setting in Walton County
thousands of years ago.
SWCC president Bob
Dobes opened the meeting by
reminding the group that
SWCC is a community orga-
nization dedicated to "pro-
tecting what we see here and
the preservation of a beauti-
ful sustainable community."
Mikell opened his remarks
by telling the audience, "I'm
one of the lucky people who
get to play in the dirt and get
paid for it." Mikell said,
"There is a lot of archaeology
in Walton County. I've been
working here since the 1980s
and I can't believe how much
of it is here and how much of
it is going away."
The earliest known inhibi-
tors of the local area were
Paleo-Indians who only left
behind a few stone artifacts.
Mikell said most of the earli-
est groups were nomadic and
were here when bison
roamed the woods of Florida,
which they did until 500 to
800 years ago.. Some 6,000
years ago people started to
settle down and became less
nomadic. Archaeologists at-
tribute much of the settling
down to the stabilization of
sea levels.
Much of the pottery that
has been found locally dates
back at least 3,000 years.
Mikell pondered how people
cooked before discovering
ways in which to create cook-
ing pots and suggested they
used skin bags and clay balls
for creating heat. "The earli-

OLOGIST Greg Mikell spoke.

monthly meeting of the Southi
Walton Community Council:

est pottery is fiber tempered
which was not very durable
but it led to the creation of
more substantial sand-tem-
pered pottery," he said.
Various cultures in the
area have been defined by
names such as the Santa
Rosa Swift Creek culture
whose pottery was repre-
sented by stamps on the potsi
which have been found on
Choctaw Bay. Archaeologists
have found no evidence these
sites were stockaded.
Mikell said about 1,000
years ago a dramatic:change
took place in the region when,
the Weeden Island culture
seemed to merge with the
Fort Walton. culture.

Revised Oakes at Eden gets


approval for residential development


By DOTTY NIST

"This is an example of how
we wish they all could hap-
pen," Walton County Com-
mission Chairman Scott Br-
annon said of a revised pro-


Development
FROM FRONT

Blackshear noted, would help
with the EAR process. A pro-
fessional services expense of
$84,720 was unanimously
approved as part of the
project.
Longtime county resident
and realtor David Kramer
was critical of the DCA let-
ter, calling it "a veiled
threat," and "a moratorium
on development" that
"pierces the knife into the fis-
cal future of this community.
I'm asking you to negotiate
with them for us," Kramer
urged.
Greg Talburt, a one-and-a-
half-year resident of Drift-
wood Estates, disagreed.
"This is a development
nightmare," he said of Wal-
ton County's situation. "De-
velopment requires re-
sources," Talburt said, "just


posal for the Oaks at Eden
residential development
which was approved on Jan.
24 by the commission.
The revision was the result
of a series of meetings be-
tween project developer Tim


throwing up houses does not
work." He called for planning
with community needs in
mind prior to moving forward
with more residential devel-
opment.
Brannon noted that he
was involved in the county's
last amendment process and
believes that "big strides"
have been made with the re-
cent one. He thought the
county was "going in the
right direction" with the
large-scale amendment pro-
cess.
District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones commented that,
although DCA's language
was clear, the opportunity
still exists to "massage it."
Blackshear said she and
county planning staff
planned to meet with DCA
the following week in Talla-
hassee and that they planned
to discuss the Jan. 11 com-
munication further with the
state officials.


Henderson's representatives
and residents of the historic
Point Washington commu-
nity. The meetings began in
November 2005 after resi-
dents opposed the original
proposal and District 3 Com-
missioner Larry Jones urged
the two sides to work to-
gether. Jones said he sus-
pected the developer and the
residents were not very far
apart in the type of develop-
ment they would envision on
the property. The main citi-
zen objections were height
and density of the residential
subdivision proposed for a
4.55-acre site on the east side
of CR,395 in Point Washing-
ton.
The compromise agree-
ment presented on Jan. 24 by
local attorney Ken Goldberg,
representing the residents,
called for 25 lots (a four-lot
reduction,) a roundabout,
structures staggered in
height up to a maximum 38-
foot height, protection of ex-
isting oak trees, utilization of
common driveways to allow
parking in the rear of the
homes, and the filing of cov-
enants, conditions, and re-
strictions (CCRs) and ease-
ments in public record, en-
cumbering all lots prior to


sale, with CCRs to include an
architectural review board.
Goldberg also called for a
requirement that the devel-
oper show and get the resi-
dents' representative, Ty
Nunn's, concurrence on the
site plan, which had riot yet
been finalized on Jan. 24, to
insure that the plan was in
line with the terms of the
compromise agreement;
The revised proposal was
approved unanimously fol-
lowing a motion by District 5
Commissioner Cindy Mead-
ows.
Nunn thanked all who
were involved with the agree-
ment but said he hoped the
Oaks at Eden would "not be
the standard bearer for den-
sity" in the Point Washington
community. He said resi-
dents were hopeful that den-
sity could be reined in a bit
with'future development pro-
posai 'in the historic area,
The'public reaction to the
Oaks, at Eden.as originally
proposed was a catalyst. for
the formation of the Historic

tion by residents ard efforts,
still in progress, to get the old
settlement area bffidially des-
ignated as a historic overlay

More equipment arrives for beach restoration


By DOTTY NIST

Three pieces of equipment
and eight loads of pipeline
have been delivered to start
the large-scale beach restora-
tion project on the west end
of Walton County and Destin,
according to Brad Pickel,
beach management director
for the South Walton Tourist
Development Council.
Pickel said he expected
other equipment and a fuel
tank to be delivered this
week as well and that the off-
shqre submerged pipe was
expected to arrive via tug-
boat on Feb. 1. The offshore
pipeline is scheduled to be
installed during the latter
part of the week in order to
be ready for the arrival of the
Liberty Island dredge.
The dredge is expected to
be finished with a project in
Broward County by midweek
and is scheduled to arrive in
Walton County to begin con-
struction by Sunday, Feb. 5.
Plans are for the dredge to
begin pumping sand onto the
beach at Sandestin Golf and
Beach Resort about 1,000
feet west of Finz restaurant,
and construction is to move

Aerators:




Go with the Flow

Do you have a faucet that blasts out a

huge stream of water?

If it doesn't have an aerator tip,

you're wasting money.



Aerators are a simple and inexpensive way to save

money on your water bill. These little devices

screw onto the business end of your faucet.

They save you money, by mixing air with the

water, creating a flow that is still forceful but that

uses fr fewer gallons per minute.

How much difference does it make?

When washing hands, doing dishes or any thing

else other than filling something up. with an

aerator you will use 50 percent less water.

Not a bad savings for something that

costs only a couple of bucks.

So check your kitchen sink, bathroom

lavatories, laundry tubs, and bar sinks.

If they don't haxe aerators, Lput one on.

You .;I save dough

to keep you ac


there drawn both gospel fans, but

ot yet formance is part of the cele-
Emer- bration for Black History
Month.
ere is Tickets are now on sale for
inside $15 and can be purchased by
calling the theater box office
the at 892-9494.
ruary Now ifmusicjust gets your
Blood flowing, but a good
tive. meal really sets you on fire,


Christmas and New Year's
are out of the way, the
weather has actually been
somewhat milder than in
winters past and many are
feeling anxious to get out and
do something, now that some
of the Christmas credit card
bills have been paid. Febru-
ary around the Gulf Coast
has much to offer for both
inside activities and outdoor
events.
Some might require a
jacket, while others might
require a fee.
For those fans of indoor'
events, this coming weekend
offers plenty to see and do.
The first is the antique show
in Pensacola.
On Feb. 3-5, the Episcopal
Church Women of Christ will
hold their 2006 Antique
Show and Sale at the Currin
Center on Wright Street.
There are hundreds of an-
tique, collectable and classic
pieces that will be for sale.
The admission cost is $5
and that fee is good for all
three days.

Music wise, the
Chautauqua Theater is offer-
ing the sounds of D 'Vine. "A
Tribute to a Queen, Rosa
Parks, Lives On," will take
place beginning at 7 p.m.
Based out of Decatur, GA.,
the trio has performed
throughout the world in ven-
ues such as the 1996 Sum-
mer Olypic Games opening
ceremonies and other na-
tional and international
events.
The performances have


then make sure to make a
visit to the 16th Annual Chili
competition on Feb. 5 at the
Santa Rosa Mall in Fort
Walton Beach.
The event begins at 9 a.m.
with various chili cookers,
restaurant, and individual
chefs competing for cash
prizes and bragging rights.
Chili samples will be avail-
able for 50 cents a cup. Appli-
cations are still being ac-
cepted for chili cookers.
For more information, call
243-0315.
Our last stop fora weekend
of events' is at the movies
with several comedies and
family shows hitting the big
screen.
First is Martin Lawrence
as he returns as Big Momma
in Big Momma's House 2.
The undercover FBI agent is
once again on the case and in
disguise as he tries to solve
another case. The movie is
rated PG-13 and promises
laugh after laugh.
The second recommended
movie for a weekend theater
trip is Nanny McPhee, rated
PG. This movie is considered
to be the 2006 version of
Mary Poppins.
A family of seven children
have mystic and magical
adventures with the nanny,
played by Emma Thompson.
Together, they find out what
family values are really all
about.
So no matter if you want to
get an ear full of music, an
eye full of antiques and thea-
ter, or a stomach full of fire
red chili, you don't have far to
drive for a full day of fun.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 2006


. MICHAEL MARSE looks on as an official weighs in his
No. 6 Silver Bullet racecar prior to the start of the Cub Scout
Pack 562 Pinewood Derby held at St. Rita's Catholic Church
in Santa Rosa Beach.

Pinewood

Derby

Cub Scout Pack 562 of
Santa Rosa Beach recently
held a Pinewood Derby at St.
Rita's Catholic Church in
Santa Rosa Beach. Prior to
derby day, the cub scouts
built individual racecars
from kits containing a block
of pinewood and a set of
wheels. As you can imagine,
the racecars are as varied in
style and shape as the young
boys that build them.
I met up with one cub
scout, Michael Marse, as his
sleek No. 6 "Silver Bullet"
was being weighed-in. When
asked about his car, Micheal
said, "It took me.three days
to build it and I just used my
imagination for the design,
solid silver with blue stripes."
And his secret weapon, a puff
of graphite to help the wheels
turn faster.
I followed Michael as he
competed in several heats
and advanced to the finals
where he took second place.
"I feel really good," said
Michael. "Even though I
came in second, I made a re-
ally good effort and I'm look-
ing forward to next year."
Spoken like a true champ.
Parents of boys interested
in Boy Scouts are invited to
attend a Boy Scout Commit-
tee meeting February 21 at 6
p.m. at St. Rita's Catholic
Church in Santa Rosa Beach.
For more information con-
tact Bill Potter at 830-4939.

Corner pocket theatre getting back on stage


By BRUCE COLLIER
Niceville's Corner Pocket
Theatre enjoyed a modest
run from September 2001 to
February 2005.
Corner Pocket operated out
of a store front embedded in
a strip of shops on John Sims
Parkway. Director Robert
Drake, Delores Drake, and
a core group of actors, direc-
tors, and technicians. man-
aged to carve out a respect-
able niche for themselves.
The shallow, rectangular
stage was dinky, or "inti-
mate," depending on your
point of view. Instead of tra-
ditional rows of seats, Drake
and company set up tables
and chairs, rather like a cof-
fee house or cabaret theater.
Snacks, soft drinks, and
wine were offered to audi-
ences for consumption during
the performance.
Among Corner Pocket's
productions were Dracula,
The Butler Did It, The Odd
Couple, and various holiday
productions.
In addition to mainstream
fare, the Corner Pocket pre-
sented improvisation, origi-


nal scripts, and shows for
younger audiences. Drake
also offered classes in acting
and stage combat.
For assorted reasons, the
Corner Pocket broke up early
last year. The theater moved
out of its home, and the ac-
tors and techies moved else-
where into the theater com-
munity.

However, the store front
space remains open and
available. Drake 'has deter-
mined to reopen the Corner
Pocket, though he is not sure
exactly where, when, or with
whom.
Drake is currently in re-
hearsals for Shakespeare's
The Merry Wives of Windsor,
to be presented in March at
Okaloosa Walton College'
(OWC).
He recently circulated an
open letter to his fellow com-
pany members. In the letter,
Drake expressed his plan to
revive Corner Pocket, possi-
bly as early as spring of
2006.
"I propose," [the letter
reads], to raise a repertory


company of compensated
actors...and to make a place
where we can do Broadway,
the Bard, vaudeville, street
theater, traveling shows,
original shows, improve, what-
ever we want to create in an
atmosphere free [of] con-
straints."

The prospect of creating
paying jobs for actors should
interest many locals. At-
present, Seaside Repertory
Theatre (SRT) in south Wal-
ton County is the only profes-
sional theater serving this
area.
Paying theaters exist east
and west of here, but not in-
between, though local actors
can find some film and tele-
vision work.
Despite his hope of a "com-
pensated" company, Drake
adds that no one is going to
get rich, "not yet."
Drake is also preparing to
send out a second letter, to
persons on the old Corner
Pocket mailing list. He in-
tends to offer discounted
"pre-season" tickets, and a
"lifetime pass" to Corner


Pocket productions.
He is also considering tack-
ing on a fee to each ticket, out
of which he can pay a little
something to the performers
and crew, after expenses
have been met.
Drake plans to invest some
of his own funds, and will be
seeking support from donors
and potential partners. He
said he would "definitely" re-
turn to the old space, though
it was "not perfect."
"I'd like a little more room."
Drake regards Niceville as
a "perfect" place for the the-
ater, but has not ruled out
moving elsewhere. "There's
so much talent in the area."
OnceThe Merry Wives of
Windsor closes, Drake plans
to begin work on a "small-
cast comedy," and start gath-
ering the nucleus of a com-
pany.
"I hope to be in rehearsal
by April," he said.
For more information, or to
be added to the mailing list,
call Drake at 678-9190, or e-
mail him at
rohio48th@netzero.com.

area's pottery anywhere,"
Mikell declared.
The remainder of the lec-
ture sailed over the occupa-
tion of the region by the
Spanish and the English,
noting that Spanish armor
has been found in Grayton
Beach. During this same
time the Euchee and Creek
tribes of Native Americans
also occupied the area. "In
1840s, the Florida legislature
passed a law saying it was
illegal to be an Indian in
Florida, forcing the Eucheeg
who lived in Red Bay to move
south. Ultimately most of
these tribes merged into the
Seminole tribe, which domi-
nated South Florida.


Lifeguard
FROM FRONT

staffing and a lifeguard
trainer, proposed costs for the
program were $427,865 for
the'SWFD and $399,308 for
the sheriffs office. Imfeld
said that the only variable
would be that the SWFD pro-
poses to retain the trainer, a
local individual who has ex-
tensive life saving training,
on a full-time basis for in-
struction and as a lifeguard.
The,sheriffs office proposes
to employ him initially for
full-time personnel instruc-
tion: and then on a part-time
basis for additional training
as-needed.
i.District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones noted that in all
fairness this should be a com-
parison between Proposal A
and& Proposal B without re-
gard to the entity making the
proposal and added that the
BCC had asked for guidance
from the committee. He com-
mented that there would be
ari opportunity for the BCC
to negotiate with the party
that was selected arid make
chfiiges to the proposal.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows said she
would "tend to agree;" about
comparison of the proposals.
However, she said she had
received a" number 6f calls
from constituents who said
they would be more comfort-
able with the SWFD provid-
ing the lifeguard service.
Thieebre, she said, she
would favor that organiza-
tion.
C'Zouy Commission Chair
Scott Brannon spoke in favor
of the sheriffs office due to
the lower cost of their pro-
posal.
District 4 Commissioner
Ro Cuchens moved to pro-
ceed with negotiations with
the:sheriffs office as vendor
fori:the lifeguard service.
Brannon stepped down as
chair to second the motion,
which failed 2-3 with Jones,
District 2 Commissioner Ken
Pr dgen, and Meadows vot-
ing no.
.A subsequent motion by
Jones to select the SWFD as
vendor was the mirror image
of the previous one, carrying
with favorable votes by
Jones, Pridgen and Meadows.
Funding for the pilot pro-
gram through South Walton
Tourist Development Council
(TDC) bed tax moneys had
tentatively been identified.
InrNovember 2005, TDC Ex-
ecutive Director Kriss Titus
said there would be sufficient
funds through a
reprioritization of some of
those previously designated
for a wayfinding signage pro-
gram, the creation of a
bayside nature center, and
the promotion of the Autumn
Tides shoulder season festi-
val.
The commissioners opted
to proceed with this funding
source, unanimously approv-
ing a resolution provided by
County Attorney David
Hallman aimed at making
the "necessary legislative
findings" for the use of bed
tax funding for lifeguard ser-
vice.
State law restricts rev-
enues from the bed tax to
tourism promotion uses. The
Jan. 24 resolution deems the
use of these funds for life-
guard service "an appropri-
ate expenditure" since the
service has "as one of its main
purposes the attraction of
tourists."
