Airport expansion plan approved


By RON KELLEY
A main runway that will stretch
5,000 feet, newly paved, with paved
taxiways and more commercial plane
hangars are all part of the new airport
plan as described by Peter Green of
URS, Inc., to the DeFuniak Springs
City Council.
The council reviewed the drawings
as Green described the planned im-
provements that will feature a longer
runway, designed to accommodate cor-
porate jets. The entire runway, running
from east to west, would be resurfaced,
along with the taxiways.
The current hangars have all been
rented. City officials have agreed that
they could likely lease the hangar
space as fast as they could be built and
more hangars are being planned along
the north-south runway.
The extended main runway would
require some land acquisition, but
should provide a much greater eco-
nomic return on that investment.
Funding will conpi : the form of state
and federal grail,:
The council mel bers gave the plan
an unqualified thumbs up.
Developers of a new Walgreen's
drugstore received approval from the
city council to move forward with plans
to shift Corbett Drive from its present
spot to line up with Bob Sikes Road,
where it meets U.S. 331. The dirt road
now joins the highway north of Bob
Sikes Road and developers want to be
able to use Corbett Drive as an en-
ftrance and. xit for the drug store,
which will locate at the former Wal-
Mart building on the east side of U.S.
331.


The change will require new turn
lanes, making it a four-way intersec-
tion. With the county's preliminary ap-
proval, Walgreen's developers will
move to purchase the land needed to
relocate Corbett Road.

The city also reached an agreement
with the owners, of the DeFuniak
Springs Country Club regarding sewer
lines and impact fees.
Club president Bill Lindsay offered
to swap land for a city right of way to
access the southern side of the airport
in lieu of a $10,000 impact fee.
When asked about the value of the
right of way land, city manager Kim
Presnell said that, while nothing could
be built on the right of way strip, resi-
dential lots in the area cost many thou-
sands more than the impact fee. She
suggested it would be a good trade.
Presnell also advocated running sewer
lines to the edge of the country club
property, so they could hook up to city
service. The club would still have to run
its own connecting lines and pay a
sewer tap fee of approximately $5,000.

Residential housing developers
Wayne Jacob and Kathy Blanton, seek-
ing a zoningchange for property across
from Lake Stanley Park on Shoemaker
Drive, also received good news. The
pair plan to build a multi-family hous-
ing development that will feature 70 -
80 units. A public hearing was set for
March 13, 2006 at City Hall.
Another planned development near
the city's Wayside Park at the intersec-
tion of U.S. 90 and U.S. 331 did not fare
as well.


Jim Busby owns property just west
of the park and has plans to build re-
tail outlets and office space. Busby had
two requests before the council. One
was to build an access road that con-
nects with the park's service road.
However, assistant city manager Larry
Laird said the sharp angle at which the
two roads connect would force all of
Busby's traffic to enter and exit
through the eastern entrance to the
park on U.S. 90. Further, the planned
route of the access road would place it
very close to a city lift station and ser-
vice building.
Ultimately, the request was denied
unanimously.
Busby's second request was to erect
a 50-foot tall double-sided, lighted sign
near U.S. 90. The council noted that the
height, and the fact that one side of the
sign would face a city park, is against
city ordinances. The council denied the
request 3-1, with Councilman Don
Harrison casting the dissenting vote
(Mayor Pro-Tempore James Huffman
acted as mayor in Harold Carpenter's
absence),
Resident J.B. Hillard updated the
council regarding the progress of the
committee seeking to establish a senior
center at the Warren Building on Col-
lege Avenue after the county moves all
of its offices back to the courthouse.
Councilman Roy McLeod praised
Hillard and fellow councilman, James
Coffield, for their efforts in creating a
senior center for local residents to ei-
joy. Hillard said he woumldIaso update
the Walton County Commission at
their next meeting, held on Tuesday,
Feb. 14.


Department of


Juvenile Justice


investigating


alleged abuse of


DeFuniak teen


By BRUCE COLLIER
The Florida Department of
Juvenile Justice (DJJ) is in-
vestigating allegations of
abuse of a 16-year-old DeFu-
niak Springs girl.
The abuse was reported to
have taken place at the
HOPE Program, a facility for
juvenile females in Fountain.
The alleged victim is
Deanna Troublefield, who
last May was ordered into
the facility following an ar-
rest on theft charges. She
was ordered to serve between
six and nine months at the
facility.
Deanna's grandmother,
Felice Troublefield, said that
on or around February 5, her
granddaughter was standing
outside ofa room at the fa-
cility, when a staff member
ordered her back inside.
Deanna reportedly told
the staff member that she
had been given permission to
stand outside.
At that point, the staffer is
alleged to have grabbed
Deanna by the ankle and
dragged her back into the
room, bruising her chest and
bumping her head.
Felice stated that this was
not the first incident of abuse
suffered by her grinddaugh-
ter at HOPE.
DJJ communications di-
rector Cynthia Lorenzo
would not confirm Deanna's
presence in the juvenile sys-
tem because of state confi-
dentiality rules.
Lorenzo did state that the
DJJ 'takes ese allegations
of abuse very seriously," and
that reports are investigated.
However, an incident re-


port was obtained from DJJ,
with a juvenile's name re-
dacted. The incident reported
allegedly took place on Feb-
ruary 4, 2006.
The report states that a
youth, designated only as a
white female, "alleged that
she was choked by Staff
Marcita Baker during a PAR
straight arm escort to a
takedown."
PAR stands for "protective
action response," a form of
permitted restraint for staff-
ers.
The report further states
"The youth was disruptive in
the hallway and would not
comply with verbal com-
mands."
The report also says that
the "youth and staff are no
longer in contact with one
another and no marks or
bruises were noticed. An in-
ternal investigation will be
conducted."
Lorenzo could not confirm
that the February 4 incident
involved Deanna. She did
confirm that the staff mem-
ber, Marcita Baker, has been
suspended pending an inves-
tigation of the February 4
incident described in the re-
port.
The report indicates that
the incident was reported to
the abuse registry of the De-
partment of Children and
Families (DCF).
Public interest in juvenile
facilities has been height-
ened by reports of the Janu-
ary death of 14-year-old Mar-
tin Lee Anderson a ii.nmate
in a Bay County Sheriff's
boot camp. Anderson's death
is also under investigation.


EMS union local


president supports fire/


rescue consolidation


By BRUCE COLLIER
Robert Daniel is a firefighter and emer-
gency medical services paramedic, and presi-
dent of Local 4413 of the International As-
sociation of Firefighters (IAFF).
In a lengthy letter sent recently to the
Herald, Daniel expressed his support of the
county-wide consolidation of fire services into
a single entity, Walton County Fire Rescue
(WCFR).
In Daniel's view, the "rapid rate" of growth
in Walton County makes consolidation a ne-
cessity, both for fire and emergency medical
services (EMS).
"The creation of WCFR... was due in part
to volunteer departments not being able to
gain new recruits or provide consistent re-
sponses," he wrote. Walton County EMS is
part of WCFR.
Daniel added that, while volunteer
firefighters "are the backbone of the fire ser-
vice in the United States," that "recruitment
of volunteers in the United States is down
from what it was several years ago."
Daniel offered south Walton County's all-
professional fire and rescue service as an
example of a "high level of fire and EMS ser-
vice."
A part-pro, part-volunteer WCFR, he
added, would mean"a savings to the taxpayer
over a fully- paid service and allows volun-
teers the opportunity to gain a job with the
county's help as positions open and they re-
ceive proper training."
On the subject of training, Daniel re-
sponded to remarks recently made to the
Herald by an anonymous county employee.

That employee stated that EMS workers
electing not to cross-train as fire fighters
have been told that their jobs cannot be guar-
anteed.
Daniel wrote, thatht employee's comments
would lead you to believe that the county
would fire any personnel that did not go to
fire school."
"At no time has the county ever said they
would fire anyone. They stated that they
could not guarantee that they would remain
at their current duty station."
Daniel allowed that such persons "could


be moved to units where fire fighters are
not needed."
Daniel also dismissed the anonymous
employee's statement that cross-training
would lead to a "house divided" when it came
to allocating EMS/fire fighter efforts at a fire
where people were injured.
"...[F]from the first day of class... whether
you are a fire fighter, EMT, paramedic, first
responder, or law enforcement officer, you are
taught life and limb over property."
Daniel agrees with the argument that con-
solidation will mean a "substantial saving"
in purchasing trucks and equipment, and will
offer standardization and interchangeability.
In a related story, the Liberty Fire Dis-
trict (LFD) board met February 13 to decide
on a proposed agreement with Walton
County.
Following a three-hour meeting, during
which board members, fire department mem-
bers, and the public offered comment, a 2-2
tie vote was broken in favor of signing the
agreement.
Breaking the tie.was LFD president Phil
Givens.
"We'll sign it," said Givens, adding that the
county had agreed to "about half" of what
LFD had wanted. "We got some conditions
we wanted in, and they got some they wanted
in."
LFD agreed to sign a finalized agreement,
which the county will prepare and submit
to them.
In any event, the agreement expires on
September 30, 2006. The agreement is ter-
minable by either party with 90 days' notice.
Both Givens and LFD Chief Roger Roy
said that part of the funds they receive from
the county will go to make payments on a
truck. The balance will be deposited in a spe-
cial "county fund" account, for operating ex-
penF.
Givens said that maintaining this sepa-
rate account will help keep track of spend-
ing, and make any audits easier.

The agreement does not make LFD a
member of the WCFR.
Roy said, "I'm a lot happier. We've come a
long way."

New Economic Development


Council director on board


By DOTTY NIST
Bob Smith is the enthusiastic choice of the
Walton County Economic Development
Council (EDC) as its new executive director.
Smith's appointment was announced on
Feb. 14 at the Walton County Board of
County Commissioners (BCC) by Jim
Breitenfeld, interim EDC director.
Breitenfeld introduced Smith as a candi-
date with several years' experience as a
project manager in economic development
with Alabama's economic development office
who had also served with the North Missis-
sippi Economic Development Council. Smith


was educated at Auburn University. He is a
past private business owner, a qualification
the EDC found particularly valuable.
Breitenfeld said Smith was selected from
a field of 70 candidates from throughout the
Southeast.. He added that the EDC board
members were impressed with the high level
of the candidates.
"They in common saw the opportunity in
Walton County," Breitenfeld declared.
Speaking briefly, Smith echoed the latter
sentiment and said he was eager to serve.
Breitenfeld said Smith would be intro-
duced to the EDC board on Feb. 15.

LET'S TALK TRASH....
Walton residents enjoy trash pickup without receiving a monthly bill. That's because the county
has contracted directly with the service providers.
Section 212.055(3), Florida Statutes, authorizes the commissioners to levy a one percent Small
County Surtax through out the County. The statute states the board may levy the surtax pursuant
to ordinance, and in December of 1994, the commissioners adopted the Small County Surtax Ordi-
nance #94-16. Section Two (F) states "Proceeds from the Small County Surtax are a proper alter-
native to pay for solid waste collection and disposal costs and may be used to replace or offset all
or a portion of the Collection Center Assessment, tipping fees and cost of collecting solid waste."
Because of this ordinance, Walton County residents do not pay for residential garbage collection.
Walton County contracts with Dayco Services north of the Bay and with Waste Management
south of the Bay to handle trash pickup for the county. The city of DeFuniak Springs handles gar-
bage pickup within its city limits and also handles yard trash and white goods.
The contract with Dayco Services includes residential garbage pickup once a week, and the pickup
of yard debris. All yard waste must be in bags, cans or bundles that weigh less than fifty pounds
each. Yard waste includes grass clippings, shrubbery cuttings, dry leaves, pine straw, pine cones
and other vegetation material. Tree branches, bushes and shrub cuttings must be no longer than
four feet long and three inches in diameter. Residents living within the Dayco service area can call
835-4230 and have "white goods," such as stoves, refrigerators, washing machines and other ap-
pliances, picked up on a monthly basis. They do not handle hazardous materials such as tires, bat-
teries, paint and other chemicals.
The contract with Waste Management of Northwest Florida includes residential garbage pickup
twice a week, but does not include yard debris or white goods removal. Residents living south of
the Choctawhatchee Bay have to use a lawn service or bring their yard debris to the Walton
County Landfill north of DeFuniak Springs.
Homeowners can dispose of white goods at the county landfill, but many residents do not have a
means of transporting them. From December 12, 2005 to January 11, 2006, Walton County Pub-
lic Works picked up white goods from residents who were unable to properly dispose of such
items. This service may be provided again in the future.
If a residents wants to dispose of yard waste or white goods them-
selves they can go to the county landfill where the items can be Ifyou have a question or comment contact:

PERSONAL COMMENTS




History on display


By RON KELLEY

It's no secret that I am fascinated by history. This area's
history echoes the rich diversity that is Walton County to-
day.
Who would imagine today that quaint DeFuniak Springs
was once the cultural rival of much older and larger South-
ern cities? That's exactly what it became even before the
turn of the century when the small town became the home
of the Chautauqua Winter Assembly. And so it remained
for years, drawing some of the greatest minds, artists and
musicians of the age and visitors from all over the country.
In a few days, the Assembly will return, featuring more
great minds, speakers, music companies, actors and pro-
fessionals from all over the country, as well as from here in
our own hometown.
If you've never taken in an Assembly, now is a perfect
opportunity. You will not be disappointed. We've been pub-
licizing the events for weeks and will continue right up un-
til opening night, Thursday, Feb. 23.
For all my fellow Walton County history buffs, another
annual event will open, coinciding with the Assembly. I am
referring to the History Fair, sponsored by the Walton
County Heritage Association. It will be held at the county



Dear Editor:

To quote him from the French: (1) In the year 1999 and
seven months, (2000), the Great King of Terror will arrive
from the sky. (2) He will give the new King of the Mongols
power. (3) Mars, (war) rules happily. Nostradamus, (1503-
1566); Century X(10), Quatrain (verse) 72.
(1) Yet again Karl Rove's mantra is "terror" as per his
speech to the RNC on January 20, 2006. Has there been a
speech delivered by.President Bush himself that did not have
the word "terror" in it? Cui prodest scelus is fecit. The one
who derives advantage from a crime, from this "terror," is
the one most likely guilty. Then, the master over "terror"
landed on the U.S.S. Lincoln and proclaimed election
victory...HE CAME FROM THE SKY!
(2) The central banks of China and Japan (the Mongols)
hold more than $1 trillion of US treasury bonds. They are
holding the U.S. economy -hostage. Bush's economics and
deficits and trade imbalance have given them power over
our destiny.
(3) Mars/War rules happily...We are enthralled with the
endless war on terror. As with the war on drugs it will go
on ad infinitum.
This famous prediction by a man that lived half a
iiillenium ago only underscores the veracity of the Book of
Revelation. But that's yet another story.

Editor:
As a senior citizen, I am behind Mr. Hillard 100 percent.
As we know when we get to retirement age, unless we have
been planning on what to do after retirement, we are at a
loss of what to do with our time. Besides, our minds need
exercise too and learning new things is a form of exercise.
The old adage, ''use it or lose it", is true. We are all not
ready to be put away, we need a place to go for learning and
socializing that will keep us mentally healthy. Where we
can meet with like-minded folks and meet new friends?
There should be enough senior citizens to get behind Mr.
Hillard, that aren't part of the Cyber Club, that want more
out of life than t.v. and yard work and trips to the post of-
fice.
Let us all support Mr.Hillard in his effort to acquire us a
place to grow even more and stay mentally sharp until our
time.

Dear 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 Medi-
care patients select a prescription drug plan that will pro-
vide the most drugs at the least cost, with no cost to the
patient. These companies are spending millions advertising
their "service" and our government is paying for their ads.
Not only is the new prescription drug plan extremely diffi-
cult to understand, but is also unnecessarily expensive and
ineffective. The unbelievable chaos created for our senior citi-
zens 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 prq:.
gram. Oh wait, I forgot, our Congress and president passed
a bill making it illegal to purchase drugs from Canada.
The most'importarit 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 lobbyists 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.

Editor,
We thank the DEC for the remembrance of Jackie T.
Malone and Rev. James Williams in this week's edition of
the Herald.
Jackie was selfless in her contributions to others for all of
her life. She gave so much to Walton County during the
many years she lived here, touching every section of our area
with her efforts to make things better for all. Everywhere I
go, I find people whose lives she touched and they do not
forget her.
Rev. Williams. Wasn't he something? Always smiling, al-
ways serving. He was so very dedicated to any cause he was
part of, We were so fortunate to know him and have him
with us for all those years.
I believe these two are very important parts of the history
of Walton County. Aren't we proud of them?
Ann Black, Jackie's sister
DeFuniak Springs


and entertainment for the whole family, including the trav-
eling cast of Grit & Grace.. .
Don't let history pass you by-- come and make history by
making this the biggest and best history fair Walton County
has ever seen. You'll be richer for the experience.

Miller adds veterans assistance days


Congressman Jeff Miller
has announced additional of-
fice hours for veterans. In
order to better serve the
needs of veterans who are not
close to the congressman's
Pensacola or Ft. Walton of-
fices, special "mobile office"
days have been established.
Congressman Miller's Veter-
ans Affairs specialist, retired
Master Chief Bill Cooper, will
be manning the office an-
swering questions about vet-
erans' benefits, casework, or
healthcare service.
"This is just another way
we can better serve our grow-
ing veterans population in
Northwest Florida," said
Miller. "We tried the mobile
office concept earlier, and we
had such an outstanding
turnout that we needed to
add more dates and locations

Question: What are the tax requirements for mobile homes?

The Facts: In Florida, mobile homes are treated basically the same as any other vehicle: each mobile home unit
must have a title and registration. Each year, we encounter many people who bought mobile homes but did not transfer
the title to the mobile home; please be sure you obtain a title to prove ownership! The following are the (3) annual taxes
that primarily apply to mobile homes:

1. Ad-valorem Tangible Personal Property Taxes This County tax bill is for the attachments to your mobile home including
carports, porches, additions, etc. The bill is based on the value of the attachments as determined by the County Property
Appraiser. This is an annual bill that is usually received the first week of November of each year.

2. Annual Mobile Home Registration Fee- If you own the mobile home, but not the property is it
situated on, an annual registration decal is required. The decal expires on December 31st of each
year. If you own a double-wide model, two decals (one for each side) are required.

3. Ad-valorem Real Estate Property Tax: If you own both the mobile home and property it is situated own, you must apply
to the Property Appraiser's Office for a "Real Property" designation, and then receive a "Real Property" or "RP" decal.
This is a one-time decal purchase after which you will simply pay your annual property taxes.

Decals must be orominentiv disolaved in the window of the mobile home on the side closest to the
road! Each year the Tax Collector's Field Compliance Inspector will routinely monitor mobile home
compliance, and may issue a "Notice of Violation", when a decal is not displayed. Failure to comply could result in the
issuance of a Uniform Traffic Citation that imposes associated fines and mandatory court appearance.

For more information regarding this issue, or other laws and regulations related to
the Office of the Tax Collector, please contact us or visit our website.

World class medicine in Walton County


By RON KELLEY
During the last hundred
years or so, Walton County
has held some pretty impres-
sive bragging rights. As the
original site of the Chautau-
qua Winter Assembly, the
county has been able to boast
of being one of the great cul-
tural centers in the South.
The oldest working library in
the state is in DeFuniak
Springs on the shore of one
of only two naturally round
lakes in the world. Walton
beaches have been named
the best in the world and con-
tinue to draw visitors from
all over the United States
and Canada, and Walton
County continues to be one of
the fastest growing counties
in Florida.
Unknown to some, Walton
County can also boast of be-
ing home to two doctors
whose revolutionary style is
attracting patients from all
over the world.
Dr. Anthony Mork and Dr.
Scott Haufe own and operate
MicroSpine, a fully-staffed
endoscopic spinal surgery
center just soutl of DeFu-
niak Springs on U.S. 331.
The doctors use what they
call a "minimally invasive"


technique that allows them
to relieve severe spinal back
pain through an incision less
than one inch in diameter.
It's so specialized that there
have been no prior studies on
this kind of surgery until
now.
Mork and Haufe have just
completed a two-year re-
search study, which has been
published in the Journal of
Photomedicine and Laser
Surgery. The study, called
Sacroilliac Joint Debride-
ment: A Novel Technique for
the Treatment of Sacroilliac
Pain, was published in the
Journal in December. The
results offer promising news
for those suffering from
acute, long-term back pain.
Traditional back surgery,
which usually features spinal
fusion with metal hardware
done through an eight to ten-
inch incision, has a success
rate of about 50 percent. For
the other fifty percent, relief
is either short-lived or non-
existent. Many patients re-
port being worse off after the
surgery than they were be-
fore.
Using a two-year study
program with rigid protocols
involving 38 patients,
MicroSpine's endoscopic


technique offers a greater
success rate for complete re-
covery.
Of the 38 patients, 61 per-
cent had a 50 to 100 percent
reduction of back pain. In
fact, more than half of the pa-
tients reported at least a 75
percent reduction of pain
and there were no complica-
tions of any kind reported. Of
the remaining patients that
described getting less than a
fifty percent reduction in
back pain, several got some
relief and none of them got
worse.
Haufe said they have per-
formed more than 200 such
surgeries and their numbers
would have been even
greater had it not been for
the difficulty in finding re-
search staff capable of main-
taining the kind of precise
records needed for a serious,
formal study. The research
required three staff mem-
bers, using specific software,
to collect and compile the
base line data and statistics.
Haufe said that the costs of
research are significant but,
more importantly, the re-
quirements for collecting the
data are very exacting and
there can be no deviations.
Haufe said that going


through the peer review pro-
cess and having the study ac-
cepted and published by the
Journal of Photomedicine
and Laser Surgery provides
a certain amount of satisfac-
tion and vindication.
"Doctors are bred to be ar-
rogant and think their
knowledge, their techniques
and treatments are the best
and; of course, that's not al-
ways true. Like any other vo-
cation, there are good and
bad practitioners," he said.
"Some doctors will bad-
mouth anything they don't
know how to do and don't
know anything about. We've
experienced some of that al-
ready and that's one of the
reasons we're here."
Haufe said that people
have asked why he and Dr.
Mork are in a small town and
not connected with a univer-
sity or hospital in a major
metropolitan area. He admit-
ted that Walton County was
not their first choice, but said
the choice has proved to be a
good decision.
Haufe said that he and
Mork knew that no matter
where they set up shop, 'If we
build it, they will come.' How-
ever, he said, they specifically
sought to avoid universities


Medical screening to be held in Freeport community


Residents living in and
around the Freeport commu-
nity can be screen to reduce
their risk of having a stroke.
Life Line Screening will be
at the Freeport Community
Center on March 1. The site
is located at 16040 Hwy. 331
S in Freeport. Appointments

A stroke, also known as a
"brain attack', is ranked as
the third leading killed in the
world, and the seco iAnA ong
women. Through preventive
screenings, the risk of hav-
ing a stroke can be greatly
reduced.
Screenings are fast,_pain-
less and low cost, They in-
volved the use ofultrasound
technology, and scan for po-
tential health problems re-
lated to: block arteries which'
can lead to a stroke, aortic
aneurysms which can lead to
a ruptured aorta, and hard-
ening of the arteries in the
legs, which -are a strong
predicator of heart disease.
Also offered for men and


women, is a bond density
screening to assess their risk
for osteoporosis.
"It saved my husband from
having a major stoke," Will-
iam and Harriet West of
Zephyrhills, FL said.
Each screening requires
ten minutes or less to com-
plete. A complete vascular
screening package, including
the Stroke/Carotid Artery,
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm
and Ankle Brachial Index
(hardening of the arteries).
s reenings is $109. Sign-up
for a complete vascular pack-
age; include the osteoporosis
screening and pay only $129.
Life Line screening was
established in 1993, and has
since become the nation's
leading provider of vascular
screenings. Over 60 ultra-
sound teams are on staff to
travel to local committees.
These non-invasive, inexpen-
sive and painless, ultrasound
test help people identify their
risk for stroke, vascular dis-

Social Security Reform


keynote topic at


Chautauqua Assembly


The Florida ,Chautauqua
Center will offer a keynote
session titled "Is There Any
Security In Social Security?"
at the 2006 Winter Assembly,
Saturday, February 25, 2006.
The session will consist of a
moderated panel discussion
with presentations by ex-
perts and followed by ques-
tions from the audience. The
Keynote speakers will be
Matt Moore from the Na-
tional Policy Analysis Center
in Dallas, TX., and Charles
Milsted, associate state di-
rector for the AARP's Talla-,
hassee, Florida office.
Moore's presentation will
focus on the Bush adminis-
trations' Social Security re-
form proposals and how
these proposed reforms
would address the challenges
facing the Social Security
pension system. In his talk,
Moore will explain how per-
sonal spending accounts,
along with other proposals by
Congress, can preserve re-
tiree benefits and ensure the
Social Security Trust Fund's
long-term solvency.
Charles Milsted's presenta-
tion will focus on alternative
approaches to the Bush
administration's proposed
Social Security reforms and
why these alternatives are a
better overall solution. In his
talk, Milsted will explain the
benefits of investing the So-
cial Security surplus so that
it earns higher returns than
U.S. Treasury bonds, raising
the cap on the amount of
wages taxed to support Social
Security, and expanding par-
ticipation to include state


and local government em-
ployees.
The Chautauqua Assembly
expects attendance to be high
at this session, so come early
to be assured a seat.
Matt Moore, M.P.P., is se-
nior policy analyst with the

Analysis (NCPA), located in
Dallas, TX. Established in
1983, the NCPA is a non-

ternatives to government
regulation and control.
Moore is a member of the
NCPA's team of experts that
educate policy makers, opin-
ion leaders and the general
public about the economic
problems facing Social Secu-
rity and the benefits of per-
sonal investment-based re-
form. He has written and
spoken extensively on Social
Security and retirement is-
sues and is a frequent guest
on national radio and re-
gional television programs.
His columns appear regu-
larly in newspapers nation-
wide, including The Wash-
ington Times, the Milwaukee
Journal-Sentinel, and the
Providence Journal.
Prior to joining the NCPA
policy staff, Moore regularly
attended Capitol Hill hear-
ings and conferences on So-
cial Security, Medicare, tax
reform and welfare. He holds
a masters degree in public
policy from Georgetown Uni-
versity and a Bachelor ofArts
in political science and a
Bachelor ofArts in corporate


communications and public
affairs from Southern Meth-
odist University.

ate state director, Commu-
nity Outreach, American As-
sociation Of Retired Persons
(AARP).
Based in Tallahassee,

spokesperson for AARP's
Florida-based membership.
His responsibilities include
lobbying the Florida legisla-
ture on matters that impact
Florida's senior citizens and
intervening in other state-
level governmental affairs,
such as utility rate cases,
that affect Florida's seniors.
Prior to his current assign-
ment, Milsted was the super-
visor of operations for

Every year, children suffer
needless injury in traffic
crashes. To help ensure the
safety of child passengers in
motor vehicles, children need
to ride properly restrained in
child safety seats or booster
sets. Only an estimated 10-
20% of children ages 4 to 8
use booster seats. According
to a recent study conducted
by the Children's Hospital of
Philadelphia, children ages 4
to 8 who use booster seats are
59% less likely to be injured
in a traffic crash than chil-
dren who are restrained only
by a seatbelt. According to
the National Highway Traf-
fic Safety Administration
(NHTSA), motor vehicle traf-
fic crashes are still the lead-


ing cause of death for every
age 3-33 in the United States.
The Florida Highway Pa-
trol supports NHTSA's child
passenger safety efforts,.and
has joined forces with hun-
dreds of national, state, and
local organizations who care
about the safety of the
Nation's children to com-
memorate Child Passenger
Safety Week, February 12-
18. The primary goal this
year is to remind all parents
and other adults responsible
for. transporting children in
motor vehicles that all chil-
dren need to ride properly
restrained in child safety
seats or booster seats.
Colonel Christopher A
Knight, Director of the


Florida Highway Patrol said,
"As children grow, the
method of ensuring their
safety in a vehicle changes."
To ensure maximum safety of
child passengers, parents
and caregivers simply need
to follow the 4 Steps for Kids:

*Use rear-facing infant
seats 'in the back seat from
birth to at least one year of
age and at least 20 pounds;
*Use forward-facing tod-
dler seats in the back seat
from age one and 20 pounds
to about age four and 40
pounds;
*Use booster seats in the
back seat from about age four
to at least age eight-unless
the child is 4'9" or taller;


*Use safety belts in the
back seat at age eight or older
or taller than 4'9"; Children
age 12 & under should ride
in the back seat of a vehicle.

"Many parents are under
the false impression that
children who have outgrown
child safety seats can move
right into regular seatbelts,"
added Colonel Knight. "It is
a fact that seatbelts are de-
signed for adults, not chil-
dren. So, during.Child Pas-
senger Safety Week, FHP is
working hard to remind all
parents, grandparents, and
child care providers to buckle
up their children in child
safety seats and booster
seats."


Officials warn of scams, fraud


The Okaloosa Sheriff's Of-
fice is advising the public to
be alert to a proliferation of


postal and e-mail scams in
the local area. Even law en-
forcement officers have been

SBA approves over $1 billion in disaster loans to businesses affected by 2005 hurricanes


The U.S. Small Business
Administration has approved
$1.05 billion in low-interest
disaster loans to 12,455 Gulf


(*APITI.


Coast and Florida businesses
that survived the devastat-
ing 2005 hurricanes.
"The SBA remains strongly

committed to helping busi-
nesses recover and rebuild.
Disaster assistance to survi-
vors of the 2005 Gulf Coast
hurricanes remains our top
priority," said SBAAdminis-
trator Hector V. Barreto.
"These businesses will lay
the foundation for a renewed
economic base in the affected
region. This is now the larg-
est disaster response in.the
SBA's 52-year history and we
will stay on the ground until
our job is complete," he
said.
There are two types of di-
saster loans designed for
businesses. A business of
any size may obtain loans to
finance the reconstruction of
business that has been physi-
cally damaged: Small.busi-
nesses may receive an eco-
nomic injury disaster loan if
they have been. economically
impacted by a disaster.
Overall, the.SBA has ap-
proved nearly 60,800 loans
for $4.3 billion to
homeowners, renters and
businesses in the declared


disaster area, surpassing
what was previously the larg-
est response to date, the 1994
Northridge Earthquake.
In addition, decisions have
been rendered on over 57 per-
cent of all loan applications,
and damage inspections have
been conducted on nearly
244,900 properties. The SBA
has already processed almost
97 percent of the disaster
applications for economic in-
jury disaster loans. More
than 214,000 loan applica-
tions have been processed;
disbursements have been


made in 38 percent of the
approved loans.

More than 1,900 loans to-
taling $369 million have been
made to small businesses in
the affected areas through
the SBA's two regular (non-
disaster) business loan pro-
grams. The first is the 7(a)
general business loan guar-
antee program. The other is
the 504, Certified Develop-
ment Company loan program
used for financing fixed as-
sets.

surgery.
"One spinal surgeon actu-
ally told me, 'You're taking
food out of my children's
mouth.' No, we're not. We're
practicing the best medicine
we know how and we're help-
ing people," said Haufe.
When asked how and when
their unique style would stop
being revolutionary and start
becoming mainstream,
Haufe said they routinely get
requests from other surgeons
throughout the U:S. wanting
to come and study their en-
doscopic technique.
"We typically declineasuch
requests. For one thing, we
have actually designed sur-
gical instruments for our
work and we want.to make.
sure that everything is pat-


ented and protected," he said.
"The other thing is simple
competition. We've done all
the work and taken all the
risks. We'd like to be able to
benefit from it," he said. "We
had one doctor on our staff
that took what he had
learned here and went into
practice for himself."

Haufe said that, although
MicroSpine is a spinal sur-
gery center, he knows their
technique' could easily be
adapted for a wide range of
operations. "We've been
asked to do other things, but
Dr. Mork prefers to work ex-
clusively on the spine, which
makes us unique."
-Haufe-said. they are plan-
nin~a partnership with local'
"' i!, ; :, )," L U."', ., i'


and area employers, offering
their services to.workers who
suffer injuries on the job or
already have potentially de-
bilitating back pain.

Haufe also hinted that they
were about to publish a sec-
ond paper regarding stem-
cell development. It's due out
in February.
Due to such publications, it
appears MicroSpine is begin-
ning to receive the kind of ac-
ceptance andrecognitpn
that Mork and Haufe have
been seeking. Does this mean
that they'll one day be mov-
ing on to bigger and better
things?
"No," he said. "We both love
this area and hav op plans
to leave." ,JC hibv :v

Walton County names Teacher of the Year


By RON KELLEY
There she is... the Walton
County Teacher of the Year.
At a ceremony held
Tuesday, Feb. 7, Cheryl
Mixon of South Walton High
School was chosen as
teacher of the year from a
group of 14 outstanding
nominees.
Superintendent Carlene
Anderson and members of
the school board presided
over the affair, which fea-
tured remarks from the past
recipients Kristen Rhodes
and Becky Hurley.
Following the formal
ceremony, Mixon, a" math


teacher with 23 years in the
Walton County school sys-
tem, said the honor was the
highlight of her career.
"I started teaching first-
grade at West DeFuniak
Elementary, taught second-
grade loved it. I love it
when we sang and we
marched like elephants, but
math was my true calling
and I went back and was
certified in math and went
to the high school in
DeFuniak. I spent 14 won-
derful years there. They told
me they were building a
new school in south Walton
and I thought, what a chal-


lenge. So I moved to south
Walton. It's a wonderful
place, wonderful kids and I
love it," said Mixon.
"We have the best faculty
at South Walton High
School I have ever worked
with; professional, dedi-
cated. The kids are number.
one and we all feel that way
- the administration, the
faculty, the support staff,
we're there for the kids," she
said.
"There couldn't be a big-
ger honor than being in the
classroom. You know, teach-
ers are hard to come by
these days. We're facing a
real teacher shortage in
Florida and it's thrill-
ing to me to see people
that want to go into the
teaching profession
because it takes a spe-
cial type of person,"
said Mixon. "You don't
do it for the money, you
have to love what you
do, and I do. I love the
kids, they make me
what I am."
Othei teacher of the'
year nominees included
Alycia Belcourt,
Thomas Martin, Lisa
Florko, Kristen Howell,
Mary Job, Linda
Trotman, Lora Brazile,
Wendy Jones, David
Pert, Linda Presnell,
Nancy Bosenberg,
Jimmy Garrett and
Renee Riggs.


The school district also
named its 2006 Educational
Support Professional of the
Year.

Nominees included Dawn
Rader, Joy Keegans, Meta
Thomas, Dixie Burge,
Dewayne Morris, Lisa
Jones, Tewanna Partridge,
Dale Holloway, Heather
Gainey, Barb Stratton, Tony
Wilkerson, Marie Simmons,
Linda Bartlett, Judy
Creech, Joyce Laird,
Johnnie Kay Ealum,
Rebecca Wilkerson and Pat
Morris.
And the winner was...
Johnnie Kay Ealum of
Walton High School.
During an inter-
view after the cere-
mony, Ealum talked
about her 21-year
history with the
Walton County School
District.
"I started with
Nancy Holder as her
secretary. She was
the school psycholo-
gist back in 1984, and
I worked for her for
11 years. I did records
auditing for the
whole district. I trav-
elled around and did
auditing of the excep-
tional student educa-
tion (ESE) records.
"Then, when I had
enough hours to go
into the classroom,


and my children began
school, that's when I applied
at Walton High School as an
ESE paraprofessional and
I've been there ever since
and I just love my job," she
said. "I also sponsor the
Anchor Club. They're a
great group of girls and
we've been recognized state-
wide through that."
As for being named the
Educational Support
Professional of the year,
Ealum said, "It's really
rewarding and it's shocking.
I mean, it kind of takes you
back and makes you realize
that, the things that you do,
people do recognize it. You


know, I have many rewards
at Walton High School. It's
just an honor to represent
Walton County," she said.
When asked about the
future, she said, "I'm pres-
ently in college to further
my education to, hopefully,
one day be a teacher. I just
recently graduated OWC
and I'm in some education
classes now. So, hopefully,
before my children gradu-
ate, I can be one of their
teachers at Walton High
School.
"Who knows," she said
with a grin, "maybe one day
I'll be on the stage as the
teacher of the year."

Afternoon tea was invented in England in 1840, when
Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, grew tired of
the "sinking feeling" experienced every afternoon
around four o' clock. She requested a tray of tea,
bread and butter, and cakes. This became a daily
habit; thus afternoon tea was born.

Judge Not
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC

I was shocked, confused, bewildered-as I entered
Heaven's door; not by the beauty of it all, nor the lights or
its decor. But it was the folks in heaven-who made me
sputter and gasp; the thieves, the liars, the sinners,the
alcoholics, the trash.
There stood the kid from seventh grade-who swiped
my lunch money twice, next to him was my old neigh-
bor-who never said anything nice.
Herb, who I always thought-was rotting away in hell;
was sitting pretty on cloud nine, looking incredibly well. I
nudged Jesus,"What's the deal? 1
I would love to hear your take; how'd all these sinners

One day a mailman walked up to a house to deliver a pack-

package for your mother."
"Let me take it to my mommy," begged the girl.
"You can't walk," said the mailman.
"I know," she answered. "But you can carry me and I can
carry the package to my mother."
So he lifted her up in his arms and carried her into the
house. And she handed the package happily to her mother.
That crippled girl taught me a lesson and a new prayer.
Whenever I'm tired or sick, I find myself praying, "Lord,

title after 38 years


By CHUCK HINSON,
The stands were packed,
the anticipation was growing
and the players and coach
David Burke knew this could
be the year of the Bulldog.
With a sudden push at the
end, Freeport got their wish,
the 61-54 victory and the
District 1-2A title.
It had been nearly four
decades since Freeport held
a district trophy for the boys
basketball team. But after a
season of already racking up
23 wins, the Bulldogs had all
the cards stacked in their
favor against Pensacola
Christian.
At the final buzzer, David
Burke, who played on the
last Freeport boys basketball
team that won the last dis-
trict in 1968, received the
trophy from the last coach
that carried that team to a
district win, former coach
Aubrey Rentz.

The last time the two

was the 2000-01 season.
Marianna upset the Braves
55-45 in the last game for

BCC nixes amended 911 proposal by S.W.F.D.


By DOTTY NIST

A plan that the South Walton
Fire District (SWFD) saw as an en-
hancement to public safety in their
service area and to the county as a
whole, the Walton County Sheriff's
Office viewed as unnecessary at
best; citizens and county commis-
sioners expressed varying views on
the fire district proposal at the Feb.
14 Board of County Commissioners
(BCC) meeting.
In the end, the proposal,
amended to one that the fire dis-
trict hoped would be less objection-
able to critics, was turned down by
the BCC in a three-to-two vote.
The SWFD had originally
planned to ask the BCC for ap-
proval to become a primary public
safety answering point (PSAP) in
conjunction with fire district's plans
to create a 911 call center south of
the bay.
Currently Walton County's only
PSAP is operated by Walton County
Emergency Management at the


Emergency Operations Center
(EOC) in DeFuniak Springs.
The SWFD had intended to bring
the proposal up for BCC consider-
ation in August 2005 but agreed to
temporarily withdraw it due to ob-
jections from the Walton County
Sheriff's Office. County officials
urged the SWFD to meet with the
sheriff's office in an effort to work
through problems.
The meetings apparently did not
have the desired effect. Sheriff
Ralph Johnson recently renewed
his criticism and opposition of the
plan.

SWFD Chief Les Hallman ap-
peared before the BCC on Feb. 14.
Hallman said he had not antici-
pated the fire district's proposal be-
coming so controversial.
His amended request was that
the BCC approve a secondary PSAP
for the S.W. Fire District, a plan
that would not involve law enforce-
ment 911 calls originating south of
the bay being routed through the


new fire district 911 call center.
Hallnman also asked the county
for $50,000 in funding for the sec-
ondary PSAP and an annual bud-
get amount of $16,800 a year to pay
for phone lines, an amount which
he explained would be covered by
the 50-cent monthly 911 charge
that is placed on all phones in south
Walton County.
In addition, Hallman asked the
commissioners to consider support-
ing a primary PSAP for the SWFD
call center at some point in the fu-
ture.
The South Walton Fire District
is responsible for fire, rescue and
emergency medical response south
of the bay. 911 calls would be trans-
ferred to the fire district within 30-
40 seconds after ringing at the EOC
if the SWFD were a secondary
PSAP.

Captain Danny Glidewell of the
sheriff's office opposed the primary
PSAP for the SWFD as "an undue
burden on taxpayers."


Glidewell argued that the EOC
is doing "an exemplary job" as the
county's only primary PSAP.
"We. see no reason to change
that," Glidewell told the commis-
sioners
Glidewell also opposed the sec-
ondary PSAP plan. "We think it
would be preferable for them (the
SWFD) to have a transfer point just
as we do," he said, referring to the
sheriff's south Walton substation,
where 911 law enforcement calls
received at the EOC are relayed.
Sheriff Johnson also told the
commissioners, "I don't want any-
one to run 911 but you."
Bonnie McQuiston of the Walton
County Taxpayers Association also
doubted that "a splitting of emer-
gency services" would be the best
answer. She urged for improve-
ments at the EOC if necessary. Two
other -citizens also spoke against
the proposal.
District 5 Commissioner Cindy
Meadows was "dismayed" at what
she saw as an unwillingness on the


part of the sheriff's office to work
with the fire district to resolve the
issues in what she saw as an effort
to provide better service td the com-
munity. She said she believed citi-
zens south of the bay shared her
dismay.
District 3 Commissioner Larry
Jones also credited the SWFD for
its initiative in working toward the
improvement of safety in the
county.
After additional discussion,
County Commission Chair Scott
Brannon differed with Meadows
and Jones.
"I don't see this as a need, I see
it as complicating the situation,"
Brannon concluded.
District 4 Commissioner Ro
Cuchens moved to leave the 911
system "as is,' in effect denying the
SWFD requests.
The motion was approved, with
Brannon and District 2 Commis-
sioner Ken Pridgen supporting
Cuchens and Jones and Meadows
voting in opposition.


Public ponders Eastern



Lake options


By LEAH STRATMANN
Last week at a public meeting
Cliff Knauer, an engineer with
Preble-Rish, Inc., presented a plan
to homeowners at Eastern Lake
designed to bring the lake back to
where the water lines were in Oc-
tober 2002.
Knauer presented slides with
aerial views of the area from as far
back as 1949 and as recently as six
weeks ago. Knauer pointed out that
in the early aerial shuts, there was
no development to speak of, "so
Mother Nature was doing her
thing." Knauer emphasized to the
audience that to date, no agency
action at all has beer taken and he
was at the meeting to talk to the
most directly affected stakeholders
in the health and well being of the
lake.
The services of the civil engineer-
ing firm were retained by Walton
County for the specific objective' of
putting the lake back to pre-hurri-
cane standards because many of
the houses on the lake were com-
ing perilously close to flooding. The
channel is currently on the west-
ern edge of where the channel was
in 2002. The objective is to make
the lake operate more like it did
before the 2005 hurricane season.
Knauer said thatsince the begin-
ning of time, the lakes have been
an ever-changing entity, but devel-
opment and natural weather phe-
nomena have had influenced
nature's design.
Currently, sand has clogged up


the lake's outfall and the county
started digging a channel which
popped off (discharged) and the
lake continued to rise. There is no
exchange of Gulf water to the lake
now and the lake contains more
'fresh water than salt water.
"I'm here to present a
permittable plan founded on con-
crete evidence of a plan that
matches where the water lines were
in October 2002," Knauer said. "At
that time the standing elevation of
the water's outfall was three to
three and half feet deep." A
permittable plan is one designed to
simulate natural lake conditions
and create the least delay in obtain-
ing the necessary permits from the
!Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection and Walton
County.
Knauer's concept included
lengthening the boardwalk around
the lake and using the sand
dredged from the lake to create two
protective dunes of 5 feet on one
side and 8 feet on the other side and
changing slightly the course of the
outflow. "We want to distribute
people to edge of the proposed lake
instead of dumping them on the
beach," Knauer said. Other con-
cepts to discuss in depth included
what to do with material that
comes out of the lake or should any
action at all be taken?
"Right now, the county has only
a 33-foot easement to the lake," he
said. Currently the outflow is ap-
proximately 660 feet from the Gulf


of Mexico. Knauer pointed out that
historically when the lake dis-
charges, it discharges a.large vol-
ume of water, but the current con-
dition of the lake provides no.ve-
locity.
Homeowners in attendance were
quite vocal in suggesting that
rather than building dunes, the
sand needs to be taken to the east

Planning commission calls



for a closer look at PUDs


By DOTTYNIST
What is a PUD? It's a planned
unit development which can be
almost anything.
The Walton County Planning
Commission is concerned that al-
most any development can cur-
rently be proposed as a PUD, and
along with this type of proposal,
applicants are allowed to request
exceptions from normal Walton


County Land Development Code
standards on setbacks, road widths,
and other dr 3lopment plan fea-
tures.
The land development code
states that the purpose of a PUD is
"to provide flexible land use and
design regulations and to permit
planned diversification and inte-
gration of uses and structures,
while retaining to the county com-


mission the authority to establish
limitations and regulations thereon
for the benefit of the public health,
welfare and safety."
Currently any size parcel can be
proposed for approval as a PUD.
Last month the planning commis-
sion voted to recommend that the
county change the code to set the

MICHAEL BOMAR oflTtra Tech presents plans to improve stormwater
drainage in Driftwood Estates.



Driftwood drainage


solutions go high-tech


By DOTTYNIST

Concerned residents and
homeowners got a chance to talk
one on one with county planning
and legal staff and consultants
tasked with analyzing Driftwood
Estates drainage, plus designing
and permitting improvements to
the subdivision's stormwater drain-
age system.
About 40 citizens were present
at the Feb. 6 Walton County Board
of County Commissioners special
meeting devoted to Driftwood Es-
tates.
"Tonight we are here to look for
solutions to this problem," County
Commission Chairman Scott
Brannon stated. He said the county
is looking for input from residents
and property owners.
Some existing homeowners in
the peninsular bayfront subdivision
have called for the county to stop
new phase development in the in-
terior of Driftwood Estates until
flooding and stormwater drainage
problems can be resolved.
However, Walton County Legal
Services Director David Hallman
told the attendees that the only le-
gal basis to stop the new develop-
ment would be noncompliance with
the county land development code
or development order conditions,
and he has no evidence that this is
the case.
After assessing drainage in
right-of-ways in his assigned area,


along Shipwreck Road and Drift-
wood Road, county consultant
Michael Bomar of Tetra Tech engi-
neering is proposing to improve a
standing water situation by filling
the now-open roadside ditches with
gravel wrapped with fabric and sod-
ding over the fabric. The filled
ditches are to be connected with an
underdrain system to transfer the
water to outfalls in the subdivision.
Sediments will be retained in the
ditches, Bomar explained.
Bomar said his company is in the
process of permitting to modify the
ditches. He anticipates that work
will begin in April.
In May 2005, the two companies
developing the interior of the prop-
erty, Olson and Associates and
Adams Homes, each agreed to con-
tribute $60,000 toward the system
to eliminate the roadside ditches.
In a review of his findings on the
subdivision's six drainage outfalls,
Bomar noted that conveyance is
poor for the outfall extending across
Buck Road to Buck Bayou.
According to information pro-
vided by Walton County Growth
Management, the county's position
is that a wetland originally existed
in this area and that a historic out-
fall here was filled by the property
owners without proper permits.
County officials and staff plan to
meet with the state Department of
Environmental Protection in an ef-
fort to get the original outfall re-
opened.

Seaside Repertory


Theatre hosts first


ever independent film series


Seaside Repertory
Theatre,(SRT) the premier
professional theatre com-
pany of northwest Florida,
announces the opening of its
first-ever Indie Film Series,
beginning Wednesday Feb. 8
and continuing each subse-
quent Wednesday evening
through March 1 at the Sea-
side Meeting Hall Theatre.
The series includes a pot-
luck dinner beginning at 6pm
with film screenings begin-
ning at 7p.m. Admission is
free, but a $5 donation is re-
quested, and in the spirit of
a potluck event, patrons are
invited to bring an appetizer
or dish to share among the
guests. The evening is a
unique opportunity for
people to gather to watch and
discuss independent films
that are so rarely offered out-
side major metropolitan ar-
eas.
Independent film is a term
that describes a film that is
initially produced without fi-
nancing or distribution from
a major movie studio. Often,
an independent film is
bought by a major studio af-
ter it gains popularity in film
festivals and Indie show-


cases.
However, while the cost of
producing a film has dropped
significantly in recent years
due to the proliferation of
digital cameras and editing
software, studios are becom-
ing increasingly reluctant to
invest in a film without a
proven director or leading
actor. Programs like SRT's
Indie Film Series, as well as
internet distribution, are be-
coming the only vehicles for
independent film exposure.
Each evening of SRT's
Indie Film Series has a
theme, beginning on Febru-
ary 8 with a scheduled view-
ing of two documentaries and
one narrative film relating to
the theme of 'uncommon
families.'
February 15 evening is the
Shorts program, showcasing
seven different shorts, films
ranging from four to 20 min-
utes, focusing on a variety of
topics.
Feb. 22 details 'unconven-
tional marriage', and ex-
plores this theme through a
documentary and a narra-
tive.
The final evening of the se-


ries on March 1 focuses on
'Savage Terrain' with two
shorts and a documentary
scheduled to explore topics
ranging from the human
quest to remain young to the
extraordinary journeys of
Lewis and Clark. Film
viewings for each evening
run from 60 to 115 minutes.
"We are thrilled to be pre-
senting an indie film series,"
stated Craige Hoover, artis-
tic director of SRT. "From the
beginning SRT has been
about broadening the enter-
tainment options in the re-
gion. Independent film has
taken such a huge leap in
recent years that the quality
and quantity of young film-
makers out there is astound-
ing. Often times young art-
ists just need a chance at
some exposure. Seaside Rep
knows something about that,
believe me."
Additional information re-
garding the Indie Film Se-
ries, including a schedule of
films and film descriptions
can be obtained by visiting
the SRT website at
www.seasiderep.org or by
calling the box office at 850-

Question: What are the tax requirements for mobile homes?


The Facts: In Florida, mobile homes are treated basically the same as any other vehicle: each mobile home unit
must have a title and registration. Each year, we encounter many people who bought mobile homes but did not transfer
the title to the mobile home; please be sure vou obtain a title to orove ownership! The following are the (3) annual taxes
that primarily applyto mobile homes:

1. Ad-valorem Tangible Personal Property Taxes This County tax bill is for the attachments to your mobile home including
carports, porches, additions, etc. The bill is based on the value of the attachments as determined by the County Property
Appraiser. This is an annual bill that is usually received the first week of November of each year.

2. Annual Mobile Home Registration Fee- If you own the mobile home, but not the property is it
situated on, an annual registration decal is required. The decal expires on December 31st of each
year. If you own a double-wide model, two decals (one for each side) are required. -A

3. Ad-valorem Real Estate Property Tax: If you own both the mobile home and property it is situated own, you must apply
to the Property Appraiser's Office for a "Real Property" designation, and then receive a "Real Property" or "RP" decal.
This is a one-time decalpurchase after which you will simply pay your annual property taxes.

Decals must be orominentlv disolaved in the window of the mobile home on the side closest to the
road! Each year the Tax Collector's Field Compliance Inspector will routinely monitor mobile home
compliance, and mayissue a "Notice of Violation", when a decal is not displayed. Failure to comply could result in the
issuance of a Uniform Traffic Citation that imposes associated fines and mandatory court appearance.

For more information regarding this issue, or other laws and regulations related to
the Office of the Tax Collector, please contact us or visit our website.

Leaking Toilets



Did you know that toilet flushing accounts for
38 percent of household water use and a leaking toi-
let can be one of the greatest sources of water waste
in the home? A slow-leaking toilet can on average
waste up to 78.000 gallons of water per year. To check
for a slow leak, lift the tank lid and add a dozen drops
of food coloring. After an hour, if the coloring seeps
into the bowl, you have a leak.


The cause is probably in the tank ball or flap-
per valve or the valve opening it seats on. The rub-
ber stopper at the base of the tank, over time, can
become brittle, cracked, or dirty with sediment. This
creates a leak that lowers the tanks' water level, caus-
ing the fill valve to turn on and refill the tank. Clean
both valve seat and flapper or ball with an emery
cloth or fine steel wool. If it is plastic, use a dish
scouring pad instead. If it still leaks, replace them.


If you have a noisy "running" toilet the cause
could be the refill tube or flush handle. Usually ad-
justing the refill tube or lengthening the chain on the
flush handle corrects the problem and stops the flow.


These are just a few steps that you can take to
ensure the peak performance of your toilet. You will
save water, money id lots of aogravation.

BOB HENDERSON picks ripe lemons from citrus trees
in his Dune Allen Beach garden.


A garden's bounty

As I enter the driveway of Bob and Jo Henderson's home,
located off Allen Loop in Dune Allen Beach, I can't help but
notice the view of the gulf. It's beautiful on this warm and
sunny February day. A black lab greets me and Bob quickly
appears and introduces his four-legged companion, Shamrock,
so named because of her St. Patrick's Day birth date.
As I get closer to the house, I'm awe-struck as I see lush,
green citrus trees laden with bright orange and yellow fruit.
We walk past the "Welcome to My Garden" stone at the en-
trance to the garden area and I smell the familiar scent of
citrus. Boughs of trees bearing oranges, ruby red grapefruits,
satsumas, tangelos, lemons and limes are bent to the ground
heavy with fruit ripe for picking.
"I planted the trees eight years ago," Bob says, "and they've
done quite well. The salt air from Hurricane Ivan had an ad-
verse effect on some of the tangelos, but the unseasonably
warm winter has produced quite a crop. Even the peach trees
are starting to bud' and will start to ripen in April. i have
mushroom compost delivered by the truckload to keep the
soil rich." Bob, who admits to being a self-taught gardener,
identifies and picks a variety of lemons, oranges and grape-
fruits. Before he puts them in bags we smell each one at the
spot it was connected to the tree. Bob explains, "Some are
more fragrant than others, but the true test is the taste test."
The Henderson garden also includes cabbage and turnip
patches. Bob cleans up the largest head of cabbage I've ever
seen and places it in a bag along with turnip bulbs that he
digs up and peels. As I help him dig up the turnips I get a
whiff of rosemary from a nearby bush.
We walk around his property, which overlooks Lake Allen,
and Bob shares hurricane stories with me as I touch, smell
and photograph everything in sight. When it's time for us to
say our goodbyes, Bob hands me the bags he filled from the
garden. I graciously accept and can't resist asking him what
he plants in his summer garden. "Tomatoes, squash, okra,
the usual," he responds.
I thank Bob for sharing his time and the fruits of his labor
with me and assure him that I'll be back to see the summer
garden. As I drive-away, the fragrance from the bags in my
car soothes hny senses...orange, grapefruit', lemon,
rosemary...nothiing cdinpares to 'th smell 6f a garden's bounty.
Something tellsmame'll be back long before summer arrives.

Tickets on sale for The Merry

Wives of Windsor at OWC


By B'Il t'E COLLIER
Tickets are now on sale for
Okaloosa Walton College
(OW(T' March production of
William Shakespeare's The
Merry Wives of Windsor.
A farce with a dash of ro-
mance, Merry Wives is the
tale of Sir John Falstaff,
Shakespeare's fat and schem-
ing old knight. Falstaff is a
principal character in Henry
IV Parts One and Two, and
is one of Shakespeare's most
popular creations.
Legend has it that
Shakespeare wrote this play
at the request of Queen


Elizabeth 1, who wanted to
see "the fat knight in love."
In Merry Wives, the for-
tune-hunting Falstaff pur-
sues two wealthy women at
once, only to find himself out-
witted at every turn.
OWC Arts Center's Sprint
Theatre houses the set, de-
signed by director Clint
Mahle to resemble the Globe.
The Globe Theatre was the
London playhouse where
Shakespeare reportedly pre-
miered many of his greatest
plays.
Mahle designed the set to


travel, and to accommodate
future productions of
Shakespeare's plays, to bc
performed in the Sprint and
in other venues.
The Merry Wives of
Windsor opens March 8, and
runs through March 11. All
performances will be at 7:30
p.m., plus one 2 p.m. matinee
on March 11.
Tickets are on sale now,
and are $15 for adults, $10
for persons under 18 years of
age.
The OWC Arts Center's box
office number is 729-6000.


THIS "WELCOME TO MY GARDEN" stone sits at the en-
trance to Bob and Jo Henderson's garden.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2006


as -AROUND THE SOUTH


Mardi Gras is in
full swing all over
the Gulf States from
Fort Walton Beach to
New Orleans. That
means revelry, fun
and Laissez les Bon
Temp Roulez!

This past weekend I fought
the crowds, grabbed f6o the
beads and even pushed a kid
or two to get a moonpie at this
year's Fort Walton Beach
Mardi Gras celebration.,No,
it is not the same without the
millions of people crowding
the downtown streets of New
Orleans, but is gave you a feel
of what it is really like in New
Orleans and Mobile. "':
Speaking of the City by the
Bay, Mobile was the first to
showcase the celebliation
dating back back to 1703,just
one year after the city was
founded. Historians still dis-
g&iee about whom sfartked
the event, but it w rs aclled
Boeuf Gras meaningg Fatted
Ox) and the parade consisted
of lavish parties and a simple
pulling of a fatted ox down
the streets of the .1l vil-
lage town.
In 1857, the Krewe mem-
bers of Mobile's Cowbellian
de Raskin Society travelled
to New Orleans and helped
the Crescent City form their
first Mardi Gras society, the
Krewe of Comus. The cele-
brations continue up to what
is now known as Fat Tuesday
or Mardi Gras Day.
Since the conception of the


southern celebration, cities
all around the South cele-
brate the event that culmi-
nates on Fat Tuesday at
midnight, just before the
Catholic holiday season of
Lenten begins. The obser-
vance of Easter is the end of
the Lenten period.
The following are the two
major cities that have been

David Friedman

conducting musicals on Broadway,
Mr. Friedman went to Hollywood
where he was the conductor and
vocal arranger on such Disney
classics as "Beauty & The Beast,"
"Aladdin," "Pocahontas" and "The
'Hunchback of Notre Dame." This
led to his writing music and lyrics
for Disney's "Aladdin and the King
j of Thieves" and to scoring three
animated television series and
the film "Trick". Mr. Friedman has collaborated with
Kathie Lee Gifford on three albums, "Born For You,"
"Goodnight Angel" and "Party Animals." David's songs
have been recorded by artists as diverse as Diana
Ross, Barry Manilow and the late, great Nancy LaMott,
and have been heard in major Disney Animated
Feature Films, and on television and radio all over the
world.


Orlando Opera
OrThe Orlando Opera Resident Artist
program established over fifteen
years ago, affords an interim
training ground for singers who
are looking to enrich their
experience and education in
opera music before going on to
distinguished, professional
careers. The four artists, a bass-
baritone, tenor, mezzo-soprano,
and soprano, are provided
professional coaching on voice,
language, acting, and movement during their one to
two year residency with the company. They augment
their expertise by performing in main stage shows
produced by the opera, as well as performing on tour,
bringing the magic and spectacle of this singular art
form to schools, senior centers, fundraising events,
theaters, community centers, and corporations
throughout the state of Florida.

dunes are visible in histori-
cal photos from the 1970s.
They estimate that between
12,000 and 13,000 cubic
yards of sand needs to be re-
moved from the lake, and
then be distributed any-
where south of the coastal
construction control line.
Residents around the lake
said they do not want sand
piles and suggested the sand
be evenly distributed south of
the coastal construction
lines, which would serve to
open up the lake, protect the
lake and the property on the
lake.
"There is potential to help
your lake," Knauer said. "I
live near Oyster Lake and it's
a dead lake as far as I'm con-
cerned." However, Knauer ex-
plained that his redesign
would probably not last more
than one or two years, de-
pending on hurricane activ-
ity.
In a printed handout, the
Eastern Lake Neighborhood
Association (ELNA) said they
are strongly opposed to any
more sand piles being put in

the corridor of the lake out-
flow.
ELNA's position is that the
minimum amount of sand be
moved out in order to make
the lake open and close and
that ELNA works with
Preble Rish to establish what
that minimum is.
ELNA's position is that
any sand removed from the
lake should be put outside of
the corridor and any decision
to alter the outflow and in-
flow of Eastern Lake be made
in agreement with represen-
tatives of ELNA. They also
requested that the sand that


PUD


blocks the county's existing
33-foot right of way at the
west end of San Roy Road be
removed to allow for a county
designated pedestrian public
beach and lake access with
appropriate county signage
for homeowners, tourists, and
emergency agencies.
"If man had never im-
pacted the lake at all, there
would be no need to do what
we are discussing today. No-
body wants to play Mother
Nature and you are never
going to raise all the houses
around the lake. The current
issue is too much sand at the
northern end of the lake,
sand brought in artificially
followed by hurricanes,"


Knauer emphasized.
The general consensus
among the group was that
the sand needed to be moved
away from the lake opening.
Knauer said he would
present the plan to the
county public works depart-
ment.

Knauer said it doesn't take
much opposition to sink a
plan and that Plan A could
easily become Plan X by the
time it travels through the
permitting process. Even if
all goes smoothly, it will take
four to six months to accom-
plish, meaning no action will
be taken before the next hur-
ricane season begins.


FROM FRONT


minimum size for PUDs at
five acres and consider disal-
lowing exfiltration drainage
systems on smaller projects.
The latter is a type of
drainage system that re-
quires maintenance, and the
planning commission has
been concerned that
homeowners or a
homeowners association is
ultimately tasked with pro-
viding this maintenance, re-
sulting, in the case of smaller
projects, in a costly.burden on
just a few parties.
On Feb. 9, with the plan-
ning commission again faced
with proposals for PUDs on
several parcels smaller than
five acres, discussion again
turned to the intent of the
code with regard to PUDs.
The application for the
2.5-acre Seacroft Preserve
PUD, a residential subdivi-
sion plan, called for a reduc-
tion in road width and side
setbacks, plus a reduction in
the standard 15-foot back
setback on some lots to as
little as five feet.
Planning Commissioner
Tom Patton objected to the
exfiltration system proposed
a part of the development
plan and also to the proposed
back setback reduction.
"Talk about kids not hav-
ing a place to grow
up...there's not even room to
have a barbecue and picnic
table out back," he com-
plained. He added that 40


percent of the parcel is wet-
lands and he that he did not
see anywhere on the lots
where the homeowners could
have a garage or store a
lawnmower.
Planning Commissioner
Randy Gardner commented
that he understands that if
you have a piece of land in
south Walton County and you
want the maximum number
of units, that proposing a
PUD is often the only way to
achieve that. However, he
called for a code revision as
soon as possible so that not
just any project of any size
can be submitted as a PUD.
. Patton said he is definitely
not against PUDs because
they provide for a "creative
master plan" to create a "de-
sirable lifestyle," as has been
done at Sandestin Resort and
Seascape. Exceptions to the
code should be based on the
merits of the PUD, he noted.
"It's a tool for a good mas-
ter plan," agreed Pat
Blackshear, Walton County
planning director.
, Blackshear commented
that the planning depart-
ment would expect to see re-
quests for code exceptions
that would make the devel-
opment better, not just allow
for more lots. Also there
would have to be a hardship
involved in developing the
property with the typical
(non-PUD) process, she
added.


Blackshear said a code
amendment would be re-
quired to modify the PUD
regulations in the code as the
planning commission had
recommended. She added
that planning staff would
make developing the lan-
guage for the amendment a
priority.
The amendment -will re-
quire county commission ap-
proval in legally noticed pub-
lic hearings.
The planning commission-
ers voted to deny Seacroft
Preserve PUD in a five-to-
one vote, with Clayton
Adkinson against the denial.
Later, development con-
sultant (and school board
member) Darrell Barnhill re-
quested a continuation on
two other small PUD propos-
als on the evening's agenda,
the Cypress Cottages PUD
and the Sunset Woods subdi-
vision PUD, to allow for revi-
sions to the proposals along
the lines. suggested by
Blackshear and the planning
commission. The continua-
tion of the.-iten3snw- sap-
proved, and Barnhill's re-
quest to amend the denial of
Seacroft Preserve PUD to a
continuation was approved
as well.
The revised proposals will
be presented at the planning
commission meeting sched-
uled for 5 p.m. on March 9 at
the South Walton Court-
house Annex.

SNOWBIRD
NEWS


By NANCY GEHRKE

While attending the jazzy
concert from OWCC at the
monthly meeting this past
week, I was reminded that
though there was ;a sea of
wrinkles, gray aKcdrbalding
heads, and various diameters
of paunches, all the toe tap-
ping and wiggling in place
were indicative that beneath
all that camouflage of the
exterior, there wasr, cool cat
and a hot chick just: itching
to 'cut a rug.' We may look
old, but in our hearts and
spirits, we are groovin'.
So, let's see what we have
in store for all these groovin'
cats for the rest of February.
First and foremost, the
public is invited to hear the
Snowbird Singers at 2 p.m.
for a free concert on Satur-
day, Feb. 25 at the First
United Methodist Church of
Fort Walton Beach (103 SE
1st St., turn right on Beal,
then left on 1st Street). Enjoy
the talents of harpist Katie
Ott Glass and pianists Fran
Hayter and Sharon Simmons
on piano.

Sunday in Feb. from 2 4
p.m. in the Center Plaza of

the sounds of Bourbon
Street, on Feb. 26. Numer-
ous 'specials' are available for

able at the Visitor Center in

You might need to rest up
from all that jazz by enjoy-
ing a game of euchre 6:30 -
9:30 p.m. every Tuesday at
the Santa Rosa Beach Com-
munity Church. Last week's
winners were: first Eunice
Collins, second Muriel
Coles, third Lynda Smith

much, can be obtained at the
bridge tables from 1-4 p.m.
on Tuesday or 6:30 9:30

cation as euchre.

Prepaid phone cards are a way to purchase long distance telephone service before actually placing the
long distance calls. They are usually sold at convenience stores, discount stores, large retail stores,
service stations, and airports. They are typically sold in $5, $10, or $20 denominations, anidjook like a
credit card. These cards may also be called "phone cards," "prepaid debit cards," "telecards," "prepaid


telephone cards," or "prepaid calling services."

Are prepaid phone cards the same as credit
calling cards?
Prepaid phone cards and credit calling cards are
not the same.. Prepaid phone cards represent
telephone calling minutes that are paid for before
actually placing the calls. You will not be billed later
for the calls made with your prepaid phone card.
With a traditional credit calling card, you receive a
bill and pay after making the call.

What should you know before purchasing a
prepaid phone card?
> How much does each minute of the conversation
time cost?
> Does it cost more to make an international call?'
> Will minutes be used for ring-time, or
conversation time? You should only be charged
for conversation time.
> Will there be any additional fees for each call?
> Is the card "rechargeable?" (Can more minutes
be purchased once the initial amount is
depleted?) If so, will the per-minute rate be the
same as it was originally? Wil! there be any
additional fees for each call once the card is
"recharged"? Some cards can be recharged
through a credit card, making the card even more
convenient.
> Is there an expiration date on the card? Be sure
to use the minutes before the expiration date.
Some phone cards expire even if there are
unused minutes left on them.
> Is the Personal Identification Number (PIN), which
is printed on the card, out of sight and hidden
from view? Be sure that no one has access to
the PIN. This will protect minutes from being used
prior to purchasing the card.
> Is there a toll-free customer service number?
> What is the issuing company's refund policy?
> Is this your first purchase of a prepaid phone
card? Purchasing a card with a small amount of
minutes will allow you to sample the service and
limit loss should the card fail to operate properly.

Why would someone want to use a prepaid
phone card?
Potential Savings: Regardless of your distance
from the person you are calling, the prepaid phone
card's price per-minute is usually the same.


Convenience: Prepaid phone cards provide a
convenient way to make long distance calls from a
payphone without Using coins, or from any phone
without being billed for the call.

Security: If your prepaid phone card is lost or
stolen, the amount of loss is limited to the value of
the card. With lost credit calling cards, you may be
subject to additional charges for calls made by
others prior to your canceling the card..

How do you use a prepaid phone card?
> Dial the toll-free access number printed on the
card.
> Enter your personal identification number (PIN).
> Dial the number of the person you want to call.

Many prepaid phone cards give you voice prompts
at each step, telling you how many minutes you have
remaining on your card, or when you are about to
run out of call time.

What if my card doesn't work?
> You may have used all the minutes on the card.
> Check for an expiration date on the card. The
card may have expired.
> Call the toll-free customer service number printed
on the card and request assistance.
> Write to the company that issued the card. The
mailing address should be printed on the card.
.> Call the Florida Public Service Commission
(PSC).

concerning prepaid calling cards. For questions or
