Congressman Miller talks


with Herald about terrorists,


oil and immigration


By RONKELLEY
How can a company
owned by a terror-linked
country get control of our
nation's ports? Two of the al-
leged 19 September 11 hi-
jackers were citizens of
Dubai, the Arab emirate
whose bid to run ports in
New York, New Jersey and
four other cities was okayed
by the White House, even
though investigators have
found signs that money used
to finance terrorism flowed
through Dubai banks. To
make matters worse, only
five percent of the cargo con-
tainers entering U.S. ports
are inspected.
In an exclusive interview
with the DeFuniak Springs
Herald and The Beach
Breeze, U.S. Representative
JeffMiller expressed concern
about the issue.
"The problem is, as I see it,
the British firm (who ran the
ports before) was a private
firm and this is a government
firm and they not only will
have the overall security of
the port, but they will have
access to all of the security
documents and that concerns
me.
"We're already concerned


about our inability to go
through and check every
piece of cargo that comes
through our ports," he said.
"It's my hope that the admin-
istration will delay the imple-
mentation or ability of this
contract to proceed."
Regarding American de-
pendence on oil, administra-
tion officials have suggested
that we have to develop new
energy technology, despite
the known existence of syn-
thetic fuel (used during
WWII), and other alternative
fuels.
Miller suggested that the
change has to come begin
with the public.
"First of all, the American
people will not lose their pen-
chant for the automobile. But
you go down to a country like
Brazil, which has zero capac-
ity for producing petroleum
products, they run most of
their vehicles on bio-diesel
and ethanol," said Miller. "Fi-
nally, the automobile compa-
nies are beginning to under-
stand that the combustion
engine will, one day, be a
thing of the past.
"In the interim, yes, we do
need to lessen our depen-
dence on oil from the Middle

to sugar to switchgrass, soy-
beans and wood chips. It's all
there," said Miller.
However, in President
Bush's Energy Program, de-
velopment of ethanol as a
fuel source received minus-
cule funding. Instead, most of
the money, including tax
break incentives for big oil
companies, despite record-
breaking profit years, went to
oil interests and to promote
nuclear energy.
Miller responded, "Inter-

exemption



in peril


By LEAH STRATMANN
At a recent special meet-
ing of the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC), it was re-
vealed the state is consider-
ing lifting the dirt road pav-
ing exemption enjoyed by
Northwest Florida according
to a letter dated Jan. 13.
According to.Allen Brown,
engineering services man-,
ager for Walton County, the
Department of Environmen-
tal Protection and the Army
Corps of Engineers are
tasked with protecting water
resources. "Both agencies
have different criteria, mak-
ing issues difficult to deal
with," he said.
Some years ago, legisla-
tion was passed by the state
providing exemptions for dirt
roads within certain guide-
lines. All the exemption
meant was that an actual
permit did not have to be
pulled, however all the engi-
neering and preliminary
work still have to be per-
formed and the paperwork
filed away. "This eliminated
months of the permitting
process,"' Brown said. "You
did the work as if you were
going to get a permit, but
kept in on file, you did not
have to pull a permit or pay
a fee."
This exemption was pri-
marily for Northwest
Florida, but recently the
state visited the issue again
after some interests in other
parts of the state wanted a
similar exemption. Brown
said a new system would
bring "a higher threshold of
engineering," making all the
work harder. "We'll be paving
less roads," Brown predicted.
The original exemption
was aimed at diminishing
pollution in the way of silt
running into the watershed.
"Dirt road in an of them-
selves have an impact on
area water when silt washes
into the watershed. This leg-
islation was really directed to
the more rural areas of the
county," he said.


Stephanie Benedetti,
permitting specialist for Wal-
ton County said that in gen-
eral the Florida Department
of Environmental Protectionr
is interested in streamlining
the permitting process for
paving dirt roads. "
"Some environmental
groups are saying that north-
west Florida does not have to
adhere to state guidelines for
paving dirt roads, but this is:
not true. We still do the necg
essary design and prepara
tion to pave a dirt road, but
we don't have to apply for a
permit. Removing the ex-
emption will be costlier an;
it will take much longer to
get the roads paved. This will
be worse for the environment
because it will allow for more
runoff into the watershed,'"
she said.
Benedetti said lifting thd
exemption might make it
easier for the DEP as a whole
to streamline paving, but the
local DEP will be overt
whelmed and they recognize
the value of the exemption
and strongly support keeping
the exemption in place. Lift-
ing the exemption might also
cause more impact to the
wetlands in which case the
Army Corps of Engineering
might have to become more.
involved in the permitting
process.

Benedetti presented her
findings to the BCC in early
February, as the county has
30 days to respond to the let-
ter from the state. "As I un-
derstand it, our local legisla-
tor has been informed and I
believe he was involved in
the original exemption legis-
lation," Benedetti said.
"For me, lifting the exemp-
tion would increase my
workload twofold. Paving
dirt roads takes up a lot of
time and budget for the pub-
lic works department ofWal-
ton County. It would really
benefit this county and the
entire Panhandle to keep the
exemption," Benedetti con-
cluded.

The Freeport City Council
will hold an annexation
workshop at 7 p.m. on March
2 in tandem with a workshop
to discuss a long draft of a
lighting ordinance.
In other business at the
Feb.-14 meeting, City Plan-
ner Latilda Henninger pre-
sented the second reading of
a small 'scale amendment
and zoning ordinance for a
4.18 acre portion of the
Stonebridge development on
the east side of U.S. Hwy. 331
North. The amendment and
ordinance would change the
zoning of the property from
low density residential to
residential R- 3, which allows
development density of up to
fourteen units per acre. In
the meeting of Jan. 26, the
developer stated that the
building density would actu-
ally average slightly above
six units per acre. The coun-
cil approved the proposed
changes.
The record plats for
LaGrange Landing phase
one were presented and ac-


cepted by the council subject
to receipt of the developer's
final letter of credit.
The resignation of Boots
McCormack from the city
planning board due to per-
sonal business demands, was
announced. Councilman Ray
Jackson will nominate a re-
placement board member at
the regular council meeting
on Feb. 23.
The council discussed a
draft of an interlocal agree-
ment with Walton County
covering cooperation be-
tween the Freeport Volunteer
Fire Department and the'
county Emergency Response
Division.
The agreement calls for
city units to respond to calls
within a larger designated
service area, adhere to state
and county standards, estab-
lish a five year strategic plan,
and appoint a voting member
to the Fire Chiefs Associa-
tion. The county will provide
capital expenditure support,
dispatch of 911 calls, and co-
ordination of training and
equipment standardization.


If approved, the term of the
agreement would be for one
year running from October
through September.
Tony Peters of the city
engineer's office advised the
council that discussions were
under way with the Ham-
mock Bay developers for a
disposal site for treated
waste water.
The council approved a bid
from Color Master Paint to
paint the community center
building.
Specifications call for pres-
sure wash of the building and
walks and brush, hot spray,
application of the paint. The
city will supply the paint for
the project.
The council approved the
construction of a new four
foot high fence for the little
league ball field. This facil-
ity may have to serve for two
years until the new facilities
at Hammock Bay are in ser-
vice. Councilman Charlie
Simmons will talk to the
Walton County School Board
about sharing expenses for
some of the work.


AS PROMISED, CSX RETURNED to DeFuniak Springs to work on the railroad cross-
ings, replace rails and gravel. The work inconvenienced some motorists, but will improve the
crossing for years to come.


Federal investigation launched in Panama City boot camp death


By BRUCE COLLIER
The death of a 14-year-old
boot camp inmate remains
under investigation in Bay
County, and by the federal
government, despite a county
medical examiner's (M.E.)
ruling that the youth died of
natural causes.

Bay County medical exam-
iner Dr. Charles Siebert per-
formed, an autopsy on Mar-
tin Lee Anderson, who died
January 6 following what


appears to have been a se-
vere beating by several camp
guards at a boot camp in
Panama City.
A video tape of the inci-
dent was made public follow-
ing threats of a 1 'suit by
various news orga..ations.
Anderson reportedly col-
lapsed following physical ex-
ercise. He was taken to a
Pensacola hospital, where he
died.
The M.E. ruled that Ander-
son had died because of in-


ternal bleeding, due to sickle
cell trait.
According to the report,
this disorder caused his red
blood cells to change shape,
leading eventually to hemor-
rhaging and death.
The M.E. further ruled
that the bruises and abra-
sions on Anderson's body
were the result of attempts
to resuscitate him.
Anderson's family has re-
tained an attorney, who ex-
pressed skepticism about the


autopsy.
The video also reportedly
shows a nurse, identified as
Kristin Schmidt, standing by
as deputies use force on
Anderson, who collapsed.
When the deputies begin
running for help, Schmidt
reportedly is seen listening
to Anderson's heart with a
stethoscope, then walking
away as he is loaded onto a
stretcher.
Schmidt was allegedly
been disciplined in 1993 by


the state nursing board, for
unreported reasons.
On February 16, Gregory
R. Miller, U.S. Attorney for
the Northern District of
Florida, announced that his
office will investigate the in-
cident.
The U.S. attorney will work
in conjunction with the U.S.
Department of Justice's Civil
Rights Division, and the
F.B.I.
The investigation will de-
termine whether the action


of the guards constitutes a
violation of Title 18, sec. 242
of the U.S. Code.
That statute prohibits the
deprivation of constitutional
rights by excessive force, or
deliberate indifference to a
serious medical need, by
persons acting under color of
law.

As yet, no one has been
charged with any offense in
connection with this inci-
dent.

News From

On quoting Thomas Jefferson

By RON KELLEY
I like a man that can quote Thomas Jefferson, especially
a politician. If more of them quoted Jefferson, and meant
what they were saying, the state of the union would prob-
ably not be in such a mess.
I enjoyed a rare privilege this week. I got to spend nearly
an hour and a half with two of my favorite Republican rep-
resentatives, talking politics and issues.
U.S. Representative Jeff Miller was in town, along with
State Representative Don Brown. It's been a while since
Congressman Miller has paid us a visit and they had a little
free time and agreed to meet me at the Chamber of Com-
merce offices in the Chautauqua Hall of Brotherhood.
The three of us sat down in a conference room alone and
talked about some of the most important issues in America.
We discussed the security of our ports, ideas about immi-
gration, welfare reform, the effects of current U.S. trade poli-
cies, the country's dependence on oil, social security, spying
on Americans, the Patriot Act and the all-encompassing 'War
on Terror.'
Frankly, I don't understand how we can wage war on a
noun. America has, in it's fairly recent past, declared a War
on Poverty and a War on Drugs, and I notice that we have
more of both than we did before we declared war on them.
I'm hoping that our War on Terror does not yield the same
result.
Regarding my afternoon talk with Congressman Miller
and Rep. Brown, I must say they gave a fine accounting of
themselves, speaking passionately about things in which
they believed and downplaying the scandals and missteps
by the party and the administration.
Congressman Miller's answers to some pretty tough ques-
tions were designed to help put his best foot forward, of
course, but he spoke honestly and did not toe the party line.
I really liked that. It's so refreshing.
My favorite moment came when I told him that he and


Dear Editor,
Paul Pillar, writing for the bimonthly journal, Foreign
Affairs, has become the highest-ranking C.I.A. official to
accuse the Bush administration of "cherry picking" intelli-
gence on Iraq to justify an already reached decision to go to
war. Until his retirement in October last year (after 28 years
at the C.I.A.), Mr. Pillar was the senior C.I.A. official over-
seeing Middle East intelligence assessments. He stated that
"official intelligence on Iraqi weapons programs was flawed,
but even with its flaws, it was not what led to war."
He went on to say the administration, "went to war with-
out requesting and evidently without being influenced by
- any strategic-level intelligence assessments on any aspect
iof Iraq." Pillar then wrote, '"It has become clear that official
intelligence was not relied on in making even the most sig-
nificant national security decisions, that intelligence was
misused publicly to justify decisions already made, that
damaging ill will developed between {Bush} policymakers
and intelligence officers, and that the intelligence
community's own work was politicized." Finally, "If the en-
tire body of official intelligence analysis on Iraq had a policy
implication, it was to avoid war or, if war was going to be
launched, to prepare for a messy aftermath."
The Associated Press (2/10/06) reports that "Scooter" Libby
testified before the grand jury that he was authorized by
his "superior's" to disclose the identity of Valeria Plame, a
C.I.A. agent. The reason for this disclosure a report by
Valeria Plame's husband Ambassador Joseph Wilson that
stated there was no evidence that Saddam Hussein tried to
obtain uranium "yellow cake" from Niger.
The decision to invade Iraq was made long before 9/11. We
keep hearing of manipulation and deceit. More and
more information trickles down from key people in the
"march to war" scheme fostered upon the American people
by this administration. How many lies can we stomach? How
much money must be stolen? How many lives must be lost?
When will we stop this occupation?

DeFuniak Springs


Don Brown were probably in danger because I am appar-
ently perceived as a threat to the administration.
I told him about what happened while I was doing what I
always advocate our readers do when disturbed about some
policy or pending legislation writing to their congressman.
As I have already told you, Faithful Reader, several
months ago I sent a letter to Congressman Miller's office.
At the end, where the site asks for the sender's name, ad-
dress and e-mail address, I got quite a shock. Despite using
my office computer and listing the Herald address and phone
number, the site automatically filled in my e-mail address.
Only it turned out to be my wife's personal e-mail address,
registered to her computer at home one that is not in my
name and has never been used to send a letter to any con-
gressman or senator.
When I told him about this, it was Congressman Miller's
turn to be shocked. He even called his office to verify the
details.
Finally, in bewilderment, he replied, "Maybe I'm not in
favor of the Patriot Act, after all."
Eureka! If I can manage to enlighten one good congress-
man, then maybe there's hope at last.
After all, it was Thomas Jefferson, the author of our Con-
stitution, who said, "No degree of power in the hands of gov-
ernment will prevent insurrections. I prefer the tumult of
liberty to the quiet of servitude."


Editor,
As a person who lives in DeFuniak Springs, I'm pretty
sure hunting isn't allowed in the city limits. So when I found
a cat dead in my yard with an arrow through it, I called the
police. A policeman and a Walton County Animal Control
officer responded. Photos were taken, a complaint was made
and the policeman said that the arrow appeared to be a youth
type.
One reason I pursued a complaint was that, prior to mov-
ing here, I lived next door to a young man who killed cats.
He is now in prison for life for beating another young man
to death with a baseball bat. The neighbors had begged law
enforcement and the courts to stop him before he killed a
person.
When I initially found the cat, there was a dog toy next to
it. There were a pair of Labrador Retrievers in the yard.
One black, one brown. They have been running loose around
the neighborhood. My guess is they dragged the cat in the
yard.
About three weeks ago a young cat showed up here and I
notified Animal Control, in case someone missed it, and I
put a notice on the radio. No one called for the cat, but three
other people called about missing cats. One missing cat was
orange and white, the colors of the cat killed by the arrow.
All this drama could have been avoided if people took bet-
ter care of their pets and their kids. It's not enough to just
feed them and give them names.

Editor:
Effort to create a senior center in Walton County, as re-
ported in the Feb. 19, 2006 issue of the Daily News, is a
worthy one. However, the site selected has considerably less
merit. The building selected, originally housed clinics and
doctors' offices. In addition to electrical service, it has wa-
ter, toilet and drain lines throughout. When the county con-
verted the building to house county offices; the costs far
exceeded the original estimates. In order to control costs,
many compromises were made to the interior layout. To con-
figure the building to the proposed design for the senior cen-
ter will be both difficult and expensive.
This building can better be utilized to house other citizen
services badly needed in the county. As an example, the
Council on Aging could expand its Alzheimer Respite pro-
gram. All of the proposed activities for this center are cur-
rently available in the county. Walton County has gained a
reputation with its citizens of not following through on
projects.
A better use of limited resources would be to complete
development of the Wee-Care Park. This would fulfill the
plan to develop a facility that would provide activities for
all ages, ranging from the youngest to the oldest. If the
county erected the building that was originally planned, a
senior center could be incorporated and also provide a facil-
ity that would allow for additional recreation programs. Who
knows-with an expanded recreation program, Walton
County may, someday, send a representative to the Olym-
pics.

WGTX purchased by

The Sportzmax Inc.


DeFuniak Springs radio
station WGTX, a 5,000-watt
AM broadcast facility, has
been purchased by The
SportzMax, Inc., a local group
headed by Warren L. "Max"
Howell ofDestin. Prior to the
sale, WGTX had been owned
by Beebe Communications
since 2003. The sale price was
not disclosed.
WGTX-AM 1280 (known
in its earlier years as WDSP)
has served Walt)p and
Holmes Counties since its
founding'in 1956 by W. D.
"Coot6~ Douglass and his
wife, Marie. Douglass is
widely regarded as the most
popular newscaster if North-
west Florida history. The ra-
dio station celebrates it 50th
anniversary on February
19th.
Howell's company pres-
ently syndicates his'daily ra-
dio sports talk show, "Max'd
Out", into 40 radio markets
throughout the 8 southeast-
ern states (including WGTX,
which airs the show from
9:OOAM-Noon Central Time)
and is in the process of ac-
quiring a number of other
broadcast facilities. Max

tor, coach, and broadcast per-
sonality. His coaching resume
includes a national champi-
onship; the 1969 NAIA Na-
tional Championship with
Troy University. Howell has
coached legendary NFL stars
including Emmitt Smith
(Escambia High School) and
Deion Sanders (Florida State
University).
"We believe the acquisition
of WGTX is an extraordinary
opportunity", said Howell.
"DeFuniak Springs is a city
rich in history and tradition.
This radio station is part of
that history. Our focus is
clear; make the station inte-
gral to the daily lives of the
citizens of this community; a
reliable resource and a good
neighbor."
Among those opportunities
is approval from the Federal
Communications Commis-
sion to increase station power
from 5,000 ,to 10,000 watts.
"Our area is just exploding
with both people and com-
merce. This power increase
will enable us to provide qual-
ity service to this growing
marketplace," said Howell.
"It will be a great asset to us,
and to the community."
The station's 50th anniver-
sary will be commemorated,
and additional announce-
ments made by Max Howell
regarding its future during
the Walton County History
Fair on Saturday, February
25th at the Fairgrounds in

Q: How can a
criminal record be sealed or
expunged?
A: There are cer-
tain steps to follow to
qualify for a record to be
sealed or expunged. When
a criminal history record
is sealed, the public will
not have access to it; how-
ever, certain government
or related entities do have
access. When a record is
expunged, those entities
which would have access
to a sealed record will be
informed of the
expungement, but would
not have access to the
record itself without a
court order. To access de-
tailed information about
the process, go to the
Florida Department of
Law Enforcement's web
page at
www.fdle.state.fl.us/ex-
punge. To begin, a Certifi-
cate of Eligibility must be
applied for in order to file
your petition to seal or
expunge. The issuance of
the Certificate by FDLE
indicates that you are
statutoril\ eligible for the


he C ircuit Court
public Trustee
relief being requested. To
procure the Certificate,
you must first complete
Section A of the applica-
tion, you must be finger-
printed by authorized law
enforcement, and you
must provide a certified
disposition of the case to
be sealed or expunged
which can be obtained
for a fee from the Clerk's
Office in the county in
which the charge was
brought. A non-refund-
able money order or
cashier's check for
$75.00 payable to FDLE
must accompany the ap-
plication. If you're re-
questing expungement,
you must also have the
state attorney or state-
wide prosecutor com-
plete Section B of the
application. A person
may only seal or expunge
one arrest record in one
proceeding, and there are
requirements governing
the charges that can be
sealed or expunged. Ap-
plication forms and gen-
eral information packets
are available from the
Clerk's Office.

Medical screening to be held in Freeport


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
will begin at 11 a.m.

A stroke, also known as a
"brain attack', is ranked as
the third leading killer in the
world, and the second among
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 of ultrasound
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
predicatdr of heart disease.

driver killed in truck

By BRUCE COLLIER
A young freeport man was
killed when his truck hit a
tree on Hinote Road on Feb-
ruary 19.
The exact time of the acci-
dent has not yet been deter-
mined, because the crash site
was located by a Walton
County Sherif's deputy on
routine patrol.
Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) investigator Cpl. K.D.
Davis reported that a truck
was traveling northbound on
Hinote Road "at a high rate
of speed."
The driver and apparently
sole occupant was Cameron
Michael Lund, 18, of 75 Pal-


metto Road in Freeport.
Lund attempted to negoti-
ate a slight curve, and began
to brake. Tne truck went into
a skid onto the west shoulder,
striking a tree with its left
front.
The truck then rotated
counterclockwise, coming to
final rest facing south on the
west shoulder of the roadway.
Lund was apparently al-
ready dead when the deputy
arrived on the scene.
According to the FHP re-
port, it is unknown whether
alcohol or drugs were in-
volved. The report states that
Lund's seatbelt was not in
use.

All About Sonny

When it comes to sports, and the history of Walton
County, Sonny Yates is a walking encyclopedia. I never
cease to be amazed! His knowledge and experience,
and his pronounced love and respect for the rich heritage
of the area, make him a true living asset to all of us who
call this wonderful place home.
Sonny's personal history of civic involvement and notable
accomplishments all started right here. His broadcasting
career began at WDSP, the original call sign of what is
now WGTX, in 1959 when he was a student at Walton
High School. Upon graduation in 1961, Sonny was off to
the University of Houston where he prepared for a
remarkable and exciting career.


Here are just a few highlights of "life with Sonny":
* Public Address Announcer Houston Astrodome
* Sports Information Director New Mexico State University
* Executive Director The Sun Bowl
* Associate Athletic Director University of Houston
* Owner Radio Sports Network
Sonny's return to his'home in Walton County in the early 90s brought with it
the sum total of his experience and skill, and the area has benefitted every day
since. His Saturday morning "SportsLine" show is without peer; nobody
covers local sports like Sonny Yates. If there's something worthwhile going on
in Walton County, you can bet Sonny's a part of it.
Hats off to you, Sonny, and congratulations on yet another job well done.

sees a need to move away I think the $3-a-
gallon gas is what got them they saw that
happen very quickly and they know it can
come back overnight. People are beginning
to accept other ways of generating power.
"The president is concerned, but you can't
do it overnight. Yeah, he could've put more
emphasis on alternative fuel sources, but the
entire country, more or less, is fossil fuel-run
with combustible engines," he said.
S Congressman Miller also talked about drill-
ing in the Gulf of Mexico.
"People aren't wanting to go in there and
get petroleum, they want to go in there aid
get natural gas. The Gulf Power facility in
Panama City is natural gas fired. We'd like
Sto get them all off the coal and go to natural


gas.
"We're seeing mindsets changing about this.
I never would've thought that Bill Nelson
would've ever yielded one inch to allow any
exploration or drilling in the Gulf, but he has,
which shows that he sees the pressure com-
ing from Congress," said Miller.
Miller said that the importance of the Eg-
lin AFB mission is what has kept drilling
platforms off the Gulf Coast, so far. However,
he said, "I am not one of those who thinks
that a rig at a hundred miles out that has a
blowout is going to devastate our beaches,
because I don't believe, based on what I have
seen, that the currents would allow it to hap-
pen."
Miller said the automatic safety mecha-
nisms built into oil platforms also lessen such
a possibility.
"There wasn't a single spill of any magni-
tude from Katrina on any of the rigs. All of
the spills of any volume are always at the
ports where they are off-loading or on-load-
rig," he said. "So, there are a lot of mindsets
being changed now."
Regarding immigration, Miller took a
firmer stance. "The first thing we should do
is anybody that's in this country illegally,
S should be sent back to the country that they
came from and go through the process of be-
coming either a citizen or getting a work visa
S or religious or education visa. Do it the right
way.
"There are too many people who have taken
years to get a visa to come into this country
and after 9-11, it probably takes two to three
times as long. That's devastating to people
who are trying to do it the right way," he said.
"Number one, we have got to go in and se-
% cure the borders. California's a perfect ex-

whenever Immigration and Customs people
go in and raid someplace, some of the politi-
cians in those parts of the world go berserk.
But they (illegals) have put such a drain on
their resources, medical in particular," he
said.
Miller also favors changing the law that
allows children born in the U.S. to illegal par-
ents become naturalized citizens.
As for companies who say they need cheap
labor to continue to make large profits, Miller
said he doesn't buy it, but he knows that the
problem is systemic.
"In a welfare society, where we pay people
an almost living wage to not work, they're
not going to go down and be a housekeeper
or bell man or something down there, because
they can get a check from the government
that's almost as much, for not working.
"Some people are saying that (illegals) are
good workers, but I see, in the long run, that
we will have ar entirely new society, who are
dependent on the government, who are not
.the workers their parents may have been, and
they'll be a drain on our society," he said.
Tough talk from a Republican, but Miller
said he and others have "told the president
that until we find a way to secure our bor-
ders, we're not going to look at any type of
program that comes anywhere near a guest-
worker program. In fact, I'm not sure I'll even
approve one when our borders are closed. I
just think we've got a long way to go on im-
migration."
Miller touched on the out-of-control spend-
ing by the House and the Senate, the bloated
budgets and huge pork-barrel spending.
"I hate to say it, but in the time that I've
been in Congress, the Republicans have lost
their way. You know, I have tried, and many
times felt like a small voice in the wilderness
saying, 'Stop, stop spending money so fast.'
Because we have huge obligations that we
have to find a way to pay for, and I am not
going to pay for them by raising taxes. We
have the ability to generate the revenue. We
have to be better stewards of the taxpayer's
money.
"We're trying to do earmark reform. Unfor-
tunately, the committee chairmen don't want
to give that power up, because that's how they
retain the power. In Congress, you can actu-
ally go in, in the twelfth hour, and you can
get a project put in there (in a bill) that's
never been through a hearing it's just based
on who you know," said Miller.
"We have to contintie with welfare reform.
You will continue to see. I hope, under our
new leadership of John 'Boehner (R-Ohio), a
desire to go back to oui-original Republican
principles of less taxes. less spending and less
government interference," said Miller. '
"Thomas Jefferson said it best,'The govern-
ment that governs the least, governs the
best.'"
Our conversation with Congressman Jeff
Miller will continue in our next edition.









THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2006


A weekend of lec-
tures, demonstra-
tions, concerts and
exhibits comes to
DeFuniak Springs
as the 2006 Florida
Chautauqua Assem-
bly gets under way.

The Florida Chautauqua
Assembly once again returns
to DeFuniak Springs, Feb.
23-26, bringing a multitude
of speakers, entertainers and
historians. It has become a
travel destination for thou-
sands over the past several
years. This year, the line-up
and attendees are expected
to be up to the usual high
standards.
Started as a way to social-
ize, communicate and teach,
the Assembly has blossomed
into a cultural event that
teaches diversity and under-
standing of our nation's his-
tory and the situations that
we are facing today. It takes
attendees on a trip around
the world of culture, enter-
tainment, religion, educa-
tion, history and politics,
without ever having to leave
town.
The goals of the Florida
Chautauqua Assembly are
to provide environmental
and cultural rene~ral; per-


petuate a commitment to
life-long learning; emphasize
contemporary topics, pro-
mote a public forum for de-
bate; to present high quality
events; to be cross-cultural
and ecumenically diverse:
provide a year-round spirit
and environment; and de-
velop and nurture a
Chautauqua community
that exceeds the local geogra-
phy.
With their goals in place,
the assembly has once again
gathered an impressive repe-
tiore of presenters, enter-
tainers and exhibits. This
year's assembly can appeal to
everyone.
Performances include:
*Stage and big-screen con-
ductor, David Friedman
*The Orlando Opera
*Chumuckla's Farmers'
Opry
Special activities include:
*Expert discussions on social
security
*Interfaith panel on religion
*Eli Chandler and the War
Between the States
*Ellen Mayfield and the Tea
Serenade
*The Walton County Art
League exhibit
*The Chautauqua Porcelain
Artists exhibit
*The Chautauqua Quilters
*The Tour of Old Home
Places
*The Walton County Heri-
tage Association and County


History Fair
*Walton County Current
Topics with the Walton
County Board of Commis-
sioners
Presenters include the fol-
lowing:
*Assistant director of the
FSU School of Film and as-
sociate professor at FSU, Dr.
Valliere Richard Auzenne
*History enthusiast, Palm
Beach County judge and
American storyteller, Judge
Nelson Bailey
*Architect and guest lec-
;urer and professor at
FAMU, Victor S. Bowman,
AIA NCARB
There are other events
;hat will be presented dur-
ing the weekend, including
Bruce Collier's portrayal of
Teddy Roosevelt in "Bully,"
and various tours and reen-
nactments throughout the
city.
The Florida Chautauqua
Assembly has long depended
on the influx of tourists that
make their way from all over
the country. It is the destina-
tion for many tourists that
make this their one and only
vacation stop in February.
This year, more and more
of these events will be geared
toward locals, with discus-
sions, seminars and present-
ers that know the history of
this area and will share ideas
of where we will be heading
in the future. That is why
we, as locals, must get in-
volved and support our local
cultural events.

complete listing of events
including dates, locations

raspberry cameos, Russian
teacakes, and melon kabobs
'will be served. Awaiting your
delight will be the miniature
brandy glasses filled with
chocolate mousse and grand
marnier. Crystal compotes
will present lemon curd and

Being seated in Victorian


attire by the host and host-
esses you'll be served Earl
Grey tea from handpainted
tea pots from such local art-
ists as Marylene Rhodes and
Mary Vinson. Antique
Havilind as well as Nortike,
Wedgewood and some special
attic finds will delight your
eye and the foods to follow
will certainly please your
palate. All foods designed,
hand cut and homemade

mate.
Dine on calendar girl

take a step back in time, to
sip tea with friends, renew

day.

\Truth
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC
People everywhere presume they know the truth, but
have neither holiness nor power in their lives. Truth must
be more than historical doctrines, religious artifacts-or
mementos of when God once moved.
Truth is knowing God's heart as it was revealed through
Christ, and it is knowing our own hearts in the light of
God's grace. We are shrouded in ignorance. We do not know
our world around us, much less the nature of our own souls.
Without realizing it, as we search for God's heart, we are
searching for our own. For it is only in searching for Him
that we discover ourselves. Through this searching, I po-
sition my heart before God, I pray .with a sense of trem-
bling-search me O God, and know my-heart; try me and
know my anxious thoughts; and see if there is any hurtful
way in me, and lead me in the everlasting way (Ps. 139:23-
4). Let us wash the cosmetics from our souls and look at
the unadorned condition of our hearts.

SouthWalton Lady

Seahawks ends

impressive season


S By CHUCK HINSON
It had been a fairy tale
'. story over the past year as
South Walton's little prin-
cesses fought their way from
a struggling new team, to
Fld Hfacing the number one team
Sin the state in Class 3A re-
gional semifinals. The Lady
Seahawks saw their season
; come to close when they fell
to Florida High School, 63-
29.
So The girl's basketball team
jea ; didn't seem to mind that they
had fallen in the last at-
.;..... tempt. They were more sat-.
IBPP isfied with themselves that
they had had such an impres-
SOUTH WALTON'S TAYLOR GRIFFITH got the ball sive season. South Walton
down the court and got another two points for the Lady went from a 12-14 season in
Seahawks. After posting a 24-6 season, South Walton fell to 2004-05, to a 24-6 season
Florida High School in the Class 3A regional semifinals, 63- under second-year coach
29. Kevin Craig.


Walton boys basketball

team sinks Marianna 61-48


By PAT w CK CASEY
The Walton boys basket-
ball team outscored
Marianna 30-17 in the fourth
quarter of play as they cap-
tured an opening round win
in the Class 3A state tourna-
ment 61-48. Ashton
Campbell scored 27 of his
game-high 29 points in the
second half of play as Walton
broke open a very close game
in the final eight minutes of
play.
SWalton (22-6) was carried
Sin the first half by an out-
standing performance from 6--
8 senior center Darryl
McGhee. McGhee scored 20
points on the night with 12
coming in the second period
of action when-Walton was
struggling to make shots
from the perimeter.
Marianna(18-9) started
the game with the same trick
they tried in the 2005 district
championship game against
Walton at West Florida Tech.
The Braves knocked the
opening tip out of bounds and
Marianna promptly took the
first possession and held the
ball just across half-court
running clock while waiting
for Walton to come out of their
match-up zone. The cat-and-
mouse game continued the
entire first quarter with the
score ending up 2-2 after one
period.
The game opened up in the
second quarter as Marianna
sophomore Brandon Gibson
scored nine points in the
quarter to keep Marianna
and Walton even at 16-all at
the break.
The third quarter saw each
team go on scoring runs only
to end up tied at 31-all after
three periods of play.
The game turned on
Walton's first possession of
the fourth quarter as Gibson
fouled McGhee on a shot at-
tempt and came down on the
side of his ankle, breaking the
bone and leaving the sopho-
more writhing in pain with a
compound fracture with 7:48
left in the game. EMS arrived
15 minutes later and took
Gibson to the hospital for
treatment, but the devastat-
ing injury turned momentum
Walton's way and the squad
came out firing as Campbell
canned three long 3-pointers
to put Walton up by eight
points.
The Braves never looked
back as Campbell scored 20
points in the quarter and the
Braves defense smothered
Marianna's shooters as they
captured their second home
win of the year over the Bull-
dogs 61-48. Walton won the
game despite leading scorer,
senior Jeremy Dunbar, being
held scoreless on the night.
If Walton defeats Taylor
County (a game that will be
played after the Herald goes
to print on Tuesday, February


21, at 7 p.m.) they will likely
host Jacksonville Ribault in
the Region 1, Class 3A final
on Saturday, February 25, at


7 p.m. for the right to advance
to Lakeland and the first Fi-
nal 4 trip in the history of
Walton, boys basketball.


Florida High seemed to be
too fast on the court and
caused eight Seahawk turn-
overs in the first quarter
alone. They managed to keep
up with the Seminoles for the
first few minutes of the
game, but when the first half
buzzer .sounded, the
Seahawks had fallen behind
36-9.
Ashlee Stephens led the
scoring drive for the
.Seahawks with 18 points.
Other South Walton scor-
ers included: Tara Watson
with 4 points; Taylor Grif-
fith, 3; and Jenna Conley and
Jessica Monk with 2 points
each.

FREEPORT'S DEVONGRANT looks for an open player to
pass the ball to during their game against Cottondale. The
Bulldogs fell to Cottondale in the Class 2A regional quarter-
final, 67-60.


Freeport season


comes to an end


By CHUCK HINSON
After coming off their first'
district win since 1968, the
Bulldogs were soaring high.
That was until they went up
against Cottondale and lost
the Class 2A regional quar-
terfinal, 67-60.
Cottondale jumped on the
board first and fast in the
first half and left the court at
the buzzer leading 40-26.
That was due in part to a
multitude of three-pointers
they made in the second
quarter.' .' ...
Freeport did have a fourth
quarter surge where they
racked up 25 points. But the
damage had already been
done. The fact that Freeport


was only 12-25 at the free-

ters.

Ponce de Leon Lady Pirates off to Lakeland


By PATRICK CASEY
The Ponce de Leon Lady
Pirates knocked off the West
Gadsden Panthers 54-43 in
the Region 1, Class 2A final
on Saturday night to earn
their first trip to Lakeland for
the Final Four since claiming
their last state championship
in 2000.
Lacey Griffin scored 18
points and senior Catherine
Tinsley contributed 16 in the
contest as the Pirates rallied
from an 18-17 halftime defi-
cit to pull out the victory.
PDL overcame a poor
shooting effort from the floor
in the opening half to defeat
the Panthers for the second
time this season. The two
squads had faced off in No-
vember in Ponce de Leon in a
game won by the Pirates 65-
46.
West Gadsden projected
marked improvement from
the earlier meeting as the
squad forced several turn-
overs in the opening quarter
and showed improved quick-
ness to keep the Pirates at
bay. The Pirates were their
own worst enemy in the first
half. PDL hit only 7-of-27
shots from the floor and com-
bined that with 1-of-5 made
shots from the free throw line
to fall behind 18-17.

Head Coach Tim Alford
implored his team to relax in
the second half and focus on
finishing their shots. "Every
once in a while you get a
game where the shots won't
fall for a half. You have to just


stay focused and keep doing
what got you there. It was a
big crowd and took us a little
while to settle down. Fortu-
nately our second half was
our hot half and we erased
the deficit and got the lead."
The Pirates hit 13-of-22
shots after intermission from
the floor and made 10-of-18
from the charity stripe to salt
away the victory. Only four
Pirates scored in the contest,
all starters, as Mary Howes
added 11 and Maggie Wright
tallied 9 points. Tinsley made
two key 3-pointers in the first
half when the Pirates were
struggling and added eight
points in the second half as
they built a 36-27. lead after
three quarters.
Chelsea McMillan kept
West Gadsden in the contest
as she canned 22 points and
blocked several shots by the
Pirates in the lane. Tyeshia
Battles added 10 points, but
the Panthers struggled from
the perimeter in the second
half as the Pirates worked
aggressively to grab key re-
bounds in the fourth quarter.
The Panthers dressed only
eight players for the Region
1 final and were a little
winded by the late fourth
quarter.
The Pirates got to the final
after knocking off Port St. Joe
51-28 in the second round.
The Pirates caught a break
this season by getting all
three of their state playoff
games at home.
PDL will take on North
Florida Christian out of Tal-
lahassee on Thursday, Febru-


ary 23, at 10:30 a.m. in Lake-
land. The game will be broad-
cast by DeFuniak Springs
radio station WWEO-FM
103.9 with a pre-game and
post-game show hosted by
Patrick Casey and Bill
Lindsey. The pre-game show
should begin at 10 a.m.
Should PDL claim a victory
in the semifinal, the Pirates
would play at 11 a.m. on Sat-
urday, February 25 for the
Class 2A state championship
against either Marathon(21-
1) or Orlando First
Academey(28-2).
Final 4 Notes:
PDL faced NFC twice
during the regular season in
a home-and-away series.
PDL lost 71-69 at home on
November 17 in a game that
the Pirates led until the final
90 seconds. NFC claimed a
53-43 victory in Tallahassee
on January 17.
Tim Alford is in his 11th
season as head coach and won
the 1999-2000 Class A state
championship with a 62-55
victory over St. Petersburg
Keswick Christian. The Pi-
rates finished 27-9 that
championship season.
Current assistant Laurie
Tinsley was a member of that
championship squad, the sec-
ond title in PDL girls basket-
ball history.
PDL is 0-4 against NFC
in the last two seasons. NFC
eliminated PDL 51-48 in the
second round of the Class 2A
playoffs last season after
beating the Pirates 54-52 in
Bonifay in November of 2004.
PDL is 5-1 in games

FAMU edges Paxton girls


By PATRICK CASEY
Katara Dixon's inside bas-
ket with 15 seconds left
coupled with two free throws
by Nadirah Gardner allowed
the FAMU Baby Rattlers to
escape Paxton with a 45-42
victory over the Bobcats in
the second round of the Class
A girls basketball playoffs.

Paxton struggled with
their ball handling as the
Bobcats committed 16 turn-
overs in the game and were
hurt by a taller, physical
squad from Tallahassee.
Complicating matters for
Paxton was the fact that the
refereeing crew allowed for a
lot of contact, to the displea-
sure of Paxton's crowd, but
consistent with the open style
of play in the state playoffs.
Allex McCormick scored 10
points in the game for the
Bobcats, but was held score-
less from the floor after the


first quarter. Senior Jessica
Fink led the way with 14
points and hit the only two 3-
pointers for the home team.
Paxton struggled to get the
ball inside and missed some
key outside shots in the sec-
ond half, including a shot by
point guard Breezy Zorn with
six seconds left that would
have given Paxton the lead.
The missed shot was re-
bounded by Fink who was
tied up by a FAMU player
with 3.9 seconds left in the
game. Unfortunately for the
Bobcats, the possession arrow
was in the Rattlers favor, giv-
ing them the ball. Paxton
had to commit three fouls to
send the Rattlers to the line,
and did so, but with only 1.4
seconds left. Gardner made
both free throws and the Bob-
cats could not get off a final
shqt in the time remaining.
The loss marked the sec-
ond straight year the Rattlers-


Delaney finishes 4th at

state wrestling meet


played on a neutral court this
season after going 4-3 in neu-
tral court games last season.
Tim Alford's record is be-
lieved to be 232-107 as he
nears the end of his 11th year
as head coach.
PDL is 24-11 in girls bas-
ketball state playoff games
according to the FHSAA
website.
PDL won the 1988-89
Class A state championship
with an 81-52 victory over
Fort Myers Christian to fin-
ish 32-0 under coach Terry
McClure. That squad would
rank as one of the dominant
teams of all time in the Pan-
handle and was led by
Jeanette Armstrong, Theresa
Andrews, and Debby Brown.
Debby's daughter, Courtney,
is a freshman reserve on this
year's squad.
PDL is 2-1 in state cham-
pionship games with their
only loss in the title game


coming to Fort Lauderdale
Westminster Academy 72-60
in the Class A finale after the
1989-90 season.
NFC is making just their
third appearance in the state
playoffs. This is the third


straight season in which the
Eagles have qualified and they
own a 7-2 mark in nine state
games. This will be the first
trip to the Final 4 in the his-
tory of their girls basketball
program.

Johnson

wins

Daytona

among

controversy

By CHUCK HINSON
With a two-lap lead, Jim-
mie Johnson crossed the fin-
ish line on Sunday to win his
first Daytona 500. But, it was
a victory of mixed emotions
and controversy.
Just one week after his
crew chief was let go due to
charges of altering his Lowe's
car, Johnson was all smiles
in the winner's circle. This
was despite chants and jeers
coming from several crowd
members over the past
week's events in which many
though the driver should
have been suspended from
the race.
But his two-lap victory
proved to his fans and the
racing industry that after
five tries at the big boy, he
finally made hi ark. He
and his crew have faced nu-
merous problems with NAS-
CAR officials and the media.
After a wreck by Jamie
McMurray with just seven
laps to go, the fial caution
flag came out. The drivers
were repositioned and
Johnson took the lead once
again. There was no stopping
him from getting his first
Daytona victory.
A desperate attempt by
Dale Earnhardt Jr., who was
trying to get the win for his
father who was killed on the
same track five years ago,
failed. It was also thought
that Tony Stewart had inten-
tionally tried to bump
Johnson, but that rumor was
quickly denied.
Casey Mears came in sec-
ond, two laps behind
Johnson. Ryan Newman fin-
ished third, Tony Stewart
was fifth, Clint Bowyer came
in sixth and Brian Vickers
took seventh place.
Earnhardt Jr., Dale Jar-
rettt and Ken Schrader
rounded out the remaining
top ten spots.
Despite his victory, many
say they were anticipating
some drivers to protest as
soon as Johnson hit the
winner's circle due to the
troubles that have mounted
against the driver over the
past several months. This
past weekend crew member
Chad Knaus was kicked off
the track and fired due to a
discovery of a blatant altera-
tion.
NASCAR officials discov-
ered that he hadmade the
change in the post inspec-
tion. After Johnson posted
the fifth-fastest time, a spe-
cial investigation was held,
despite the driver getting ap-
proval to race the car in the
finale.
Though Knaus was es-
corted off the field and his
camper removed, many
thought that the crew chief
was still lingering some-
where in the shadows and
keeping up with Johnson's
moves via cellphone.
As of Monday, no formal
complaints, concerns or le-
gal actions have been taken
to take the award from
Johnson. But many say
there is always a first time
for everything and investi-
gations could take months
before actions are even
taken.


ZAMBIA CAMPBELL also won a gold medal in the upper division point sparring against
a 17year-old opponent.

Region 3-2A final: Orlando First Academy 51 Daytona
Beach Father Lopez 33: Jaimie Givens and Krystal Thomas
combined for 34 points to help No. 1-ranked First Academy
erase the remainder of Father Lopez's season. The Royals'
51-33 victory in a Class 2A girls basketball regional final
Saturday guaranteed the team a spot to the state semifinals
this week and avenged last season's state-semifinal loss to
the Green Wave, the 2005 2A state champions. The Royals
(28-2) used a full-court press to slowdown the Green Wave's
hot shooters: Pressley, Jennifer Russi and Ashley Bucholz.
Thomas scored 15 points after halftime to finish with 18. Giv-
ens had 16 points.

Region 4-2A final: Marathon 66, Westminster Christian
44: Tamara Williams had 27 points, 22 rebounds and four
assists as the Marathon girls' basketball team clinched its
first trip to the state final four with a victory against host
Westminster Christian. Marathon (21-1), ranked seventh in
the state 2A poll, jumped out to an 8-1 lead in the first quar-
ter and used a 14-0 run in the second quarter, fueled by Wil-
liams, to seal a trip to Lakeland. Marathon opened its lead
to 19 points early in the third quarter. The Warriors would
not get closer than 12 the rest of the night. Marathon out-
rebounded the Warriors 49-19. Justine Holmes added another
double-double effort for the Dolphins with a 10-point, 15-re-
bound performance.

First beach



nourishment sand



hits the beach


By DOTTY NIST
After a number of years of
planning and waiting, the
joint large-scale Walton
County/Destin beach resto-
ration project finally got
started early this week.
The first load of sand was
deposited near Finz restau-
rant in Sandestin Resort.
Work will continue 24 hours
a day, seven days a week,
moving westward.
Sand from the source area
near Destin's East Pass is
being pumped onto the Lib-
erty Island dredge, which
moves to the area to be re-
stored and pumps the sand,
onto the beach through a
submerged pipeline.,,
The $23 million project will
widen a state-designated
critically eroded area (about


five miles on the west end of
Walton County and two ad-
joining miles in the City of
Destin,) by 75 to 100 feet.
Completion is envisioned for
June 2006.
Walton County's portion
will cost $16 million and is
being funded by a combina-.
tion of tourist bed tax rev-
enues and state grants.- '
Not only will the beach in
the project area be widened,
it will be elevated and a dune
will be constructed.
"The new dunes will be
built in front of the existing
dunes," explained Tracy
Louthain of the South Wal-
ton Tourist Development
Council.
"In areas where no dune
exists, the new dune will be
built as far landward as pos-


sible. The dunes will be con-
structed to replicate the
natural dune system and
then shaped to provide addi-
tional habitat and storm pro-
tection," Louthain added.
Louthain said that al-
though the restoration sand
may look a shade darker
than the native sand at first
Sdue to it having been under
water, it was carefully chosen
based on compatibility. It will
lighten to match up once it
is exposed to the elements,
she commented.

Eden Road closure



Concerns neighbors


By LEAH STRATMANN
Folks in the historic region
of Point Washington don't
much care for the recent clo-
sure of the entrance gate to
Eden State Gardens.
"That road has been here
since 1936 and our big con-
cern is:that closure of the
road doubles the traffic on
Gilmore Road by the school
and we don't feel it would be
Miss Maxon's intent to close
down the road," said area
resident Cindy Morgan.
Maxon was the last owner
of the house and, grounds
known as Eden and donated
the land to the state.
Morgan said she was told
the entrance was shut down
because of a money issue for
maintenance by both the
state park service and the


Friends of Eden. No mainte-
nance of the road has taken
place for some time.
However, Matt .Mitchell,
the information director for
Florida State Parks says
money is not the issue at all.
"We felt it was in the best
interest the park to come in
and out of it on a public road.
We want all state parks on
public land," he said. "We
have to look out for the long
term interest of the park and
its patrons. Having'people
come into a state k on a
private road is unprec-
edented."
Mitchell said the park
manager notified the neigh-
bors of the change to the en-
trance before officially clos-
ing it on Jan. 24 and was met
with no objections, a declara-


tion Morgan disputes. "No-
body came to my door, and
I'm a neighbor," she said. .
Mitchell said there was no
need for a public meeting
about the intended closure
because there was no change
to the management plan. "A
public road is always well
maintained and we can guar-
antee public access," he said.
"I have no doubt the owners
of this road are good stew-
ards," he said, "but the state
has to be sure the public in-
terest is served."
Margo Yourick, a big fan
ofthe state park system, said
that usually entrance and
exits to state parks are on the
same road and that in the
case of Eden, it was possible

DAN BEEMANofBeeman and Associates, Inc. is facilita-
tor for Walton County's 2006 strategic plan. On Feb. 14,
Beeman led the Walton County Board of County Commis-
sioners workshop that marked the kick-off for this year's stra-
tegic planning session.



2006 strategic


planning to


encompass more


By DOTTYNIST
This was not the first year
for the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) to compose a list of
strategic objectives, but this
year they plan to follow
through with those objectives
in a more comprehensive
manner.
Dan Beeman,.this year's
facilitator for Walton
County's strategic planning
effort, explained that once
the BCC has identified a
strategic direction that en-
compasses the county's mis-
sion, vision and overarching
goals, the county's depart-
ments will then develop their
individual plans, mission and
vision statements to support
the directives set by the BCC.
Speaking at a Feb. 14 BCC
workshop, Beeman empha-
sized the importance of every
county employee being aware
of the county's direction and
goals and keeping those in
mind each day as they per-
form their duties.
The strategic planning pro-
cess is to continue over sev-
eral months. It will include
training for all departments
and the setting of perfor-
mance measures to deter-
mine whether objectives are
being met. All departments
will be mapping core service
practices and identifying
critical success factors that
are necessary to meet goals.
As the county begins next
year's budget planning pro-
cess, budgeting is to be linked
to performance of strategic
objectives, and funding re-
quests are to be evaluated
against the strategic plan.
"Walton County is account-
able to its residents by com-
municating what it does and
does not achieve," Beeman
commented.
County Administrator
Ronnie Bell called the pro-
cess "a way to take us to the
next step" and to provide the
services that "your custom-


ers expect," speaking of con-
stituents.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows noted that it
is the taxpayers who fund
county government and'
"sometimes I think we forget
that."
"We don't spend enough
time finding a way to say
'yes;' we're here to serve the
public," Bell agreed.
District 1 Commissioner
Scott Brannon advocated a
centralized customer service
number for the public to call
for assistance from the
county.
Bell emphasized that the
completed strategic plan will
be especially valuable when
new employees come on
board.
"They can be handed the
plan," he said, "and know
what this organization is
about."
Beeman noted that for the
plan to work well, the county
must cultivate a positive at-
titude.
"It's not about finding
fault, it's about finding he-
roes," he said.
The Feb. 14 session in-
cluded an evaluation of pre-
viously set strategic objec-
tives. Revised objectives in-
cluded, in order of priority:
develop a comprehensive
program for paving, bridges
and infrastructure; protect
natural resources from nega-
tive impacts of growth; pro-
mote development of more di-
verse, higher payingjobs and
infrastructure to support
them, i.e, attainable
workforce housing and mili-
tary impact coordination;
provide equitable recreation
facilities for different areas of
the county; improve public
relations, instill confidence in
county government, and con-
tinue to redefine/refine Wal-
ton County government ser-
vices and the county's role in
accomplishing regional objec-
tives.


County to

beef up

weekend

code

enforcement

By DOTTY NIST

"Some of our most serious
violations have occurred on
weekends," remarked Pat
Blackshear, Walton County
planning director.
Is it a coincidence that so
many land development
"faux pas," from clear cutting
to unauthorized filling of
wetlands, have happened on
Saturday and Sundays
when the Walton County
Code Enforcement office is
closed?
In any case, Walton
County plans a remedy for
the situation by establishing.
a rotation of code enforce-
ment officers On call who can
quickly respond to com-
plaints and post stop work
orders when necessary.
Speaking at the Feb. 14
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) meeting, Blackshear
also said she would work
with the county's "communi-
cations folks" to.make sure
weekend complaints could be
relayed to code enforcement
officers.
Richard Bryant, president
of the Lake Powell Commu-
nity Alliance, had been
scheduled later in the meet-
ing to bring up the problem
of environmental damage in
process on weekends or off
hours.
Bryant was pleased that a
remedy was apparently in
the works even before his
time to speak before the com-
missioners.
Bryant called
Blackshear's plans a "great
stop gap," but called for offi-
cials and staff keeping an eye
out for possible violations in
order to prevent them from
happening in the first place.
Bryant also suggested
streamlining the approval
process for land development
activities in order to encour-
age developers to obtain the
proper authorizations.
He offered his help. "It
would be a privilege to work
with you," said Bryant, who
is also a builder.

SRB man

killed in

motorcycle

crash


By BRUCE COLLIER
A crash following a high-
speed chase took the life of a
Santa Rosa Beach motorcy-
clist in the early hours of
February 17. The accident oc-
curred on Bell Community
Road in Washington County.
Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) investigator Cpl. R.F.
Bailey reported that a motor-
cycle was traveling north "at
a high rate of speed" on S.R.
79 in Washington County.
James Michael Grizzard,
36, of Santa Rosa Beach, was
the driver.
A Washington County
Sheriff's deputy signaled the
motorcycle to stop. Grizzard
attempted to flee, turning
onto James Potter Road, and
again onto Bell Community
Road.
Grizzard drove onto the
west shoulder of the road,
lost control, and struck a util-
ity pole.
The motorcycle continued
traveling south, striking a
tree stump and overturning.
Grizzard was ejected and
struck a tree.
He was transported by
Washington County EMS to
Bay Medical Center in
Panama City, but died of his
injuries.
It is unknown whether
drugs or alcohol were in-
volved. Grizzard was report-
edly wearing a helmet.

On Feb. 13, 2006 at ap-
proximately 9 a.m. Walton
County Sheriff's Narcotics
Investigators responded to
Sacred Heart Hospital, lo-
cated in Miramar Beach, in
reference to various con-
trolled substances as well as
a pistol found on a patient
who was scheduled for out
patient surgery. Investiga-
tors made contact with hos-
pital officials regarding
Ronald G. Watson, of

session quantities of
midazolam, sufentanil and
furosemide, which are sched-
uled controlled narcotics, as
well as prescription-only

sion.
Later that day, Walton
County Sheriff's deputies
took Watson into custody on
multiple felony narcotic and
weapon charges. Watson is
an employee of the Ft. Wal-
ton Beach Medical Center.

What the county is doing to
address these and other
growth issues will be the
topic of the South Walton
Community Council public
forum to be held March 2.
Walton County Planning
Director Pat Blackshear will
discuss proposed amend-
ments to the county's Com-
prehensive Plan that will set
priorities and a vision for the
future.

before directing the Walton
County Planning Depart-
ment includes directing the
Okaloosa County Growth
Management Department
and serving as the intergov-
ernmental coordinator for
the Northwest Florida Water
Management District. She
also has served on numerous
state-wide committees ad-
dressing issues of growth
management, water supply,
land use and transportation.
The forum begins at 7 p.m.
on March 2 at the Coastal
Branch Library, located at
437 Greenway Trail, behind
the courthouse offHwy. 331.

tion of residents, business

Water Conservation:


Washing Machines


A washing machine is the second largest water
user in your home, with toilets being first. A tradi-
tional washing machine uses approximately 41
gallons per load. The best way to lower this usage
is to buy a high efficiency washing machine.

SThese machines use 35-50% less water and 50%
less energy per load. This will save you money on
both your water and energy bills.


No matter what kind of washing machine
you have, here are some basic tips that can
reduce water use for washing clothes:
SOperate the washer with full loads only -
even if the machine has adjustable load
setting. A full load is the most efficient
way to wash clothes.
SIf your washer has a variable water volume
setting, select the minimum amount
required per load.
Pre-treat stains to avoid rewashing.
Use the shortest wash cycle for
lightly soiled loads.
Check your machine hoses regularly
for cracks that could result in leaks.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2006


Smith campaign trails



through Walton County


By DOTTY NIST
State Senator Rod Smith
(D-Alachua) a Democratic
candidate for governor, and
wife DeeDee Smith stopped
in Seaside on Feb. 15 to
speak with a group of local
voters.
Santa Rosa Beach resident
Phyllis Bleiweis enthusiasti-
cally introduced Smith as
someone she had known for
30 years, "the funniest guy I
know," and someone she
would support for any office.
Smith said his reasons for
running for governor were
that he thought he could win
and that he knew he could
"make a difference."
Smith, a truck farmer's son
who graduated from law
school in 1975 at the Univer-


sity of Florida, practiced law
for 17 years, representing
police officers, firefighters
and public employees while
residing in the small town of
Alachua near Gainesville.
In 1992 and again in 1996,
Smith was elected state at-
torney for the Eighth Judicial
Circuit in the Gainesville
area, creating the circuit's
first special prosecutions unit
directed at crimes against
women and children. He is
known for his successful
prosecution in 1994 of Danny
Rolling, the serial murderer
of Gainesville college stu-
dents.
Smith noted that he also
has a local connection with
another prosecution as state
attorney. In 1998-1999, he


spent six months in Crest-
view trying local school
teacher Jimmy Ates for the
murder of his wife, Norma
Jean Ates, culminating in
Jimmy Ates being sentenced
to life in prison.
In 2000, Smith ran success-
fully for the Florida Legisla-
ture, taking back a Republi-
can seat for the Democratic
Party.
When asked what his mes-
sage was and how he accom-
plished the latter, he says he
responded, "by talking to
people over breakfast about
what's important to them."
Those things are public
schools, health care, the
home market, insurance
rates, and a sustainable en-


vironment combined with
employment opportunity, he
noted.
Smith was reelected to the
Florida Senate in 2002.
He emphasizes the im-
provement of the state's edu-
cation system as a top prior-
ity.
"We do not recruit the best
and brightest teachers," he
lamented.
He pledged that if elected
he would raise Florida teach-
ers' salaries to the top one-
third of the nation.
Smith will contend with
U.S. Rep. Jim Davis of
Tampa in the Democratic
Primary. The victor will then
face the Republican guberna-
torial nominee.

1 A-8" Martha Ingle

Q: How can a
criminal record be sealed or
expunged?
A: There are cer-
tain steps to follow to
qualify for a record to be
sealed or expunged. When
a criminal history record
is sealed, the public will
not have access to it; how-
ever, certain government
or related entities do have
access. When a record is
expunged, those entities
which would have access
to a sealed record will be
informed of the
expungement, but would
not have access to the
record itself without a
court order. To access de-
tailed information about
the process, go to the
Florida Department of
Law Enforcement's web
page at
www.fdle.state.fl.us/ex-
punge. To begin, a Certifi-
cate of Eligibility must be
applied for in order to file
your petition to seal or
expunge. The issuance of
the Certificate by FDLE
indicates that you are
statutorily eligible for the


relief being requested. To
procure the Certificate,
you must first complete
Section A of the applica-
tion, you must be finger-
printed by authorized law
enforcement, and you
must provide a certified
disposition of the case to
be sealed or expunged
which can be obtained
for a fee from the Clerk's
Office in the county in
which the charge was
brought. A non-refund-
abl, money order or
cashier's check for
$75.00 payable to FDLE
must accompany the ap-
plication. If you're re-
questing expungement,
you inust also have the
state attorney or state-
wide prosecutor com-
plete Section B of the
application. A person
may only seal or expunge
one arrest record in one
proceeding, and there are
requirements governing
the charges that can be
sealed or expunged. Ap-
plication forms and gen-
eral information packets
are available from the
Clerk's Office.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2006


Applehead

goes to

school
Applehead, a Chihuahua
so named for the shape of his
head, is one of two main-char-
acters in a series of five
children's books written by
Tyler Watts.
In the series, Applehead
and his companion, Rat Face,
another Chihuahua so
named for the shape of his
face, learn life's lessons to-
gether. As Tyler explains,
"The books are written very
simply so that young children
can understand them. The
lessons are about self-es-
teem, going to day care, adop-
tion, saving money and un-
derstanding death."
Tyler not only writes the
books, she also illustrates
each page in a collage-style
that matches the message.
"The characters, Applehead
and Rat Face, are two Chi-
huahuas that I own. I use
pictures that I take of them
in the illustrations."
Ann Quinn, a teacher at
Bay Elementary in Point
Washington, recalls the first
time she met Tyler and
learned they shared a pas-
sion teaching children.
"Tyler was so passionate
about her book. 'Once I read
the simple message in each
story, I knew it would be a
wonderful learning opportu-
nity for my students so I in-
vited Tyler to come to my
class and read her books to
them."
During Tyler's third visit to
Ms Quinn's classroom I
joined in, camera in hand.
This time she brought
Applehead along and the
children were ecstatic to
meet him. Tyler sat on the
floor and read as the children
gathered around to listen to
the story about Applehead
and Rat Face going to day
care. The children politely
raised their hands and one-
by-one shared their own'day
care stories.
When the session ended,
the children were quick to
give big hugs and shout all
at once, "Thank you, Miss
Watts, for bringing
Applehead to school!"

BEACH
FROM FRONT

site is approximately one
mile south of East Pass. Sand
is pumped onto Liberty
Dredge which motors over
offshore and pumps sand
onto the beach through a sub-
merged pipeline. The sand
will elevate and widen the
existing beach and construct
a dune.
Why does the sand being
pumped onto the beach look
different than the existing
sand?
The sand looks a shade
darker than the native sand
because it has been underwa-
ter. Once it is exposed to the
sun, rain and wind, the new
sand will lighten and match
the color of the native sugar
white sand.
Does the sand feel the
same?
Yes. The sand from East
Pass was chosen based on its
compatibility with native
sand already on the beach.
The grain composition, size
and color are very similar,
and once the new sand is ex-
posed to the natural ele-
ments it will feel the same.
What will the beach look
like after it is nourished?
The beach will be about 75-
100 feet wider once each sec-
tion is complete.
How is the placement of
the new dune line deter-

mined?
The new dunes will be built
in front of the existing dunes.
In areas where no dune ex-
ists, the new dune will be
built as far landward as pos-


sible. The dunes will be con-
structed to replicate the
natural dune system and
then shaped to provide addi-
tional habitat and storm pro-
tection.

ROAD
FROM FRONT

just to drive through and ig-
nore the honor system pay
box, which asks for $3 a car
load and $1 for those on foot
or on a bicycle.
"It's like breaking the
circle," Yourick said. "You
could go into Eden, passing
the Methodist Church which
has been there 100 years, go
past the cemetery and when
you exit go by the school and
the post office. I'm sure some
compromises can be made. It
is just so cool to come down
that road and see that beau-
tiful house."
However, it turns out the
road isn't private at all. Ac-
cording to assistant county
administrator Shirl Will-
iams, the road is platted on a
plat with easement to the
public. Furthermore, during
the tenure of former county
commissioner Van Ness But-
ler, the county maintained
the road. For unknown rea-
sons, the county has failed to
maintain the road since But-
ler left office, but Williams
said anytime the county
takes responsibility for a
road and maintains it for the
length of time this road was
maintained, the road in ques-
tion becomes the property of
the ,county.
Morgan brought the issue
to the attention of the county
at the. last Board of County
Commissioners meeting on
Feb.. 14. Since then the
county, has sent documenta-
tiornio the state park system
about : the road and the
county has been given the
information passed on by
Mitchell.
It would seem the road clo-
sure need not be continued at
all if the county is willing to
cede control of the road to the
state park service. Mitchell
admitted as much saying, "If
we get a written proposal, we
will consider it. Giving the
state control of the road
changes the whole dynamic."
