School Board


extends bid


project deadlines


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County School
Board held their regular
meeting on Monday, March
6, at the Tivoli Administra-
tive Complex in DeFuniak
Springs.
The board is currently
seeking bidders for the
projects of building a gymna-
sium at Paxton High School,
building recreation fields at
Emerald Coast Middle
School, and the re-roofing of
Bay Elementary School. Bid-
ders have been slow to enter
the fray, prompting a bidding
deadline extension, but a few
have been received recently
and the bids are expected to
be opened for all three
projects at the March 20,
meeting.
Cindy Anderson and
Cindy Jeselnik appeared be-
fore the school board to ask
the members to approve one
hour of administrative leave
per week for school district
employees that might be in-
terested in mentoring stu-
dents in the Take Stock in
Children program. Unlike
state employees, school dis-
trict employees who have
opted to become mentors--
have been required to take
comp time to meet with their
student for one hour per
week. As a result, school dis-
trict employees have not
been as able to participate in
the mentoring program that
benefits Walton School
District's scholarship recipi-
ents. The scholarship pro-
gram is set up to help sixth
thru ninth grade students
with a financial need by pair-
ing them with a mentor in
the hopes of gaining valuable
experience and insight.
The board-members gave
a unanimous 5-0 vote for ap-
proval.
Members approved a
schedule of fees to be as-
sessed for development re-
views by the Walton County
School District Planning De-
partment that should take
effect April 1. The school
board is required to review
all development plans and


requested comprehensive
plan amendments submitted
to Walton County and the cit-
ies of Paxton, DeFuniak
Springs, and Freeport to as-
sess how the developments
would affect the school sys-
tem. This, a rather time con-
suming process and the
school board believes devel-
opers should be required to
pay fees to reimburse the
school board for part of the
time and expense it incurs as
a result of reviewing the de-
velopment plans and re-
quested comprehensive plan
amendments.
Members voted 5-0 in fa-
vor of the action.

The next regularly sched-
uled meeting of the Walton
County School Board will oc-
cur on Monday, March 20, at
5 p.m.
Education/Florida Lot-
tery Notes: According to infor-
mation provided by the
Florida Lottery, Walton
County has received over $27
million in total education
funding since 1988 from the
lottery revenue and interest
earnings. That includes
-nearly $8 million for school
construction from Florida
Lottery-backed bonds and
nearly $2 million in Bright
Futures Scholarships.
District Notes: Walton
County schools were in com-
pliance with state class-size
law in 2005, according to the
state Department of Educa-
tion. Average class sizes
were at or below the levels
set in a 2002 voter-approved
amendment to the state con-
stitution. The limits are 18
students through the third
grade level, 22 students in
grades 4-8, and 25 students
at the high school level. Wal-
ton County was slightly over
the 18 students per class
count in the fall,.but the pen-
alty was waived due to the
large influx of evacuees from
Hurricane Katrina. Only 6 of
67 counties were penalized in
2005 for not having classes
under the amendment-set
levels.


DFS police


investigating


series of


arsons,


burglaries


By BRUCE COLLIER
DeFuniak Springs Police
Department I DFSPD) Chief
Mike Adkinson is stretching
his department's investiga-
tive resources to deal with a
recent series of arsons and
burglaries in the area.
A fire on the morning of
March 7 damaged the inte-
rior of Earl Alford Construc-
tion at 544 Baldwin Avenue.
Adkinson and Alford were
on the scene of the fire, which
appears to have been set fol-
lowing a break-in and theft
of property from the office.
Alford said that someone
broke into and pilfered the
office, then built a fire on the
floor out of paper and other
items.
The fire damaged the inte-
rior, but apparently did not
damage the structure itself.
Adkinson said this was the
third in a series of fires in the
area. He believes that all are


work of arsonists, though all
are not necessarily related.
- Two other fires were re-
cently set at a house on 156
East Orange Avenue, and at
the DeFuniak Springs Wal-
Mart.
In addition to the fires,
Adkinson reported a recent
series of eight break-ins and
burglaries, including several
vehicles and retail stores.
As with the fires, Adkinson
believes that some of the in-
cidents are related.
"We've got some leads," he
said.
Adkinson said that the
DFSPD is stretched for man-
power, and that he needs
more investigators to work
these cases.
A workshop on police
staffing is tentatively sched-
uled at DeFuniak Springs
City Hall on Thursday,
March 9, at a time to be an-
nounced.


Freeport wrestles


with unrecorded


subdivision


By BEN GRAFTON
At its meeting of March 1,
Freeport's Planning Board
was presented with a per-
plexing problem concerning
appropriate recommenda-
tions to make to the city
council for dealing with the
Blizzard family property,
zoned rural village, off of
Walton County's unpaved
Hanson Road.
The tract was acquired by
the now deceased father of
the present owner and di-
vided into seventeen lots, of
which more than half have
been sold. The property has
been annexed into the City
of Freeport.
Some of the present own-
ers have more than one lot
and some lots have been re-
sold to other buyers. The
crux of the problem is that
the property was not re-
corded as a legal subdivision
and does not meet code re-
quirements for development.
For now, owners request
for new building permits can-
not be approved until code re-
quirements are satisfied.
Considering the possibility
that other such situations
exist, board attorney Clayton
Adkinson advised the board
to proceed with caution to
avoid setting a precedent
that could result in undesir-
able future situations.
Freeport City Planner
Latilda Henninger will ask
for the city's engineering con-
sultants to evaluate the prob-
lem and bring more informa-
tion to the board.
In other developments, en-
gineers from Barnhill &
Barnhill requested approval
for a master.plan to build two


5,000 square foot showrooms
in Freeport's industrial park
for Designer Kitchen and
Bath. One of the buildings
will be completed and put
into service first. Infrastruc-
ture for the development will
be sufficient for both build-
ings although the second
building will be completed at
a later date.
Owners expect the facility
to be staffed by about seven-
teen employees. No manufac-
turing will be done at.the site.
although there will be a shop;
to modify products. At
Henninger's recommenda-
tion, the board passed a mo-
tion to recommend approval
of the development to the city
council.

In another interesting ac-
tion, representatives of the:
Cornerstone Development,
Group requested board ap-
proval of a proposal to build
a two building strip mall to-
taling 60,000 square feet on
the south side of SR- 20 near
its intersection with U.S.
331 South.
The property was formerly
the site of a CHELCO facil-
ity. A wetlands area exists on
the property and the devel-
oper is working with the
Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection (DEP)
for an appropriate permit.
Building B will be con-
structed first but Building A
will not be started-until the
DEP permit is issued. Build-
ing style will be designed to
fit attractively into the Free-
port environment. The board
voted to recommend ap-
proval of the project by the
city council.


Fire destroys house


on Orange Avenue


By BRUCE COLLIER
Fire destroyed an old
house in DeFuniak Springs,
early on the morning of
March 6.
DeFuniak Springs Fire
Department (DFSFD) chief
Brian Coley reported that
DFSFD was dispatched to
156 East Orange Avenue at
2:44 a.m.
The firefighters arrived at
2:48 a.m. to find that the top-
floor of the house was 100
percent engulfed in flames,
and the ground floor 70 per-
cent in flames.
Also on the scene were Lib-
erty and Argyle Fire Depart-
ments and Walton County
Fire Rescue. A total of 5 en-
gines and 16 firefighters


were on the scene.
The fire was contained to
the house, and brought un-
der control. Colpy reported
some damage to a home on
the.east side of the house,
and to a vehicle on the south
side.
The house was apparently
unoccupied. No firefighters
or civilian personnel were in-
jured.
Coley observed that the
structure simply collapsed,
due to old-fashioned nails in
the frame. He said that the
fire appears to have started
in the back of the house.

The state fire marshall's
office is investigating'the
fire.

Amended complaint filed in Hutchins v. First Baptist Church lawsuit


By BRUCE COLLIER
Following dismissal of a
portion of its original com-
plaint, attorneys have filed
an amended complaint in
Hutchins et al. v First Bap-
tist Church of DeFuniak
Springs.
The lawsuit was filed in
circuit court in Walton
County. It remains a Walton
County case, but is being
heard by a Santa Rosa
County judge. Several previ-
ous judges had recused them-
selves for various reasons.
The plaintiffs are styled as


"adversely affect and ag-
grieved homeowners in the
historic district located in
DeFuniak Springs...."
The defendant, First Bap-
tist Church of DeFuniak
Springs, is likewise located
in the historic district.
The lawsuit aros ,'-om the
action of First Bapist in de-
molishing a building located
in the district, for the pur-
pose of building a parking lot.
The plaintiffs allege that
the building was an historic
structure, and that removing
it violated this status.


Demolition occurred while
the plaintiffs were appealing
the DeFuniak Springs City
Council's original authoriza-
tion to demolish the building.
The original lawsuit was
based on a Florida statute,
which the court ruled was
not applicable. That portion
of the complaint was dis-
missed on the defendant's
motion last month. The court
gave plaintiffs leave to
amend.
The amended complaint,
containing 59 paragraphs,
seeks a permanent and man-


datory injunction.
The plaintiffs have at-
tached several exhibits,
documenting the area's his-
toric status by maps, a Na-
tional Historical Registry
document, and a Walton
County Chamber of Com-
merce brochure,
Essential to the success of
the plaintiffs' action is their
allegation of specific harm
from demolition of the build-
ing and construction of the
lot.
The amended complaint
cites various instances of


harm, including diminution
of property values, increase
in traffic from the parking
lot, vehicle motor fumes, de-
struction of a "wind buffer,"
destruction of the "residen-
tial character" and interfer-
ence with the owners "peace-
ful enjoyment and privacy"
of their homes.
The complaint also alleges
that the destruction of the
building endangers the
area's status as an historical
district.
As with the previous com-
plaint, the amended com-


plaint asks for injunctions
against further development
by First Baptist, removal of
the parking lot, and restora-
tion of the property to pre-
existing status.
The latter would pose a dif-
ficult problem for the church,
since the building was in a
state of deterioration at the
time it was demolished.
At the February motion
hearing, lawyers for First
Baptist Church said that
they would probably file an-
other motion to dismiss the
amended complaint.

Chautauqua volunteers meet for post Assembly assessment


By BRUCE COLLIER
Florida Chautauqua Cen-
ter president Diane Pickett
and a group often volunteers
met on March 6 at Pickett's
residence.
The purpose of the meet-
ing was to assess, at least
preliminarily, the 2006
Chautauqua Assembly. The
meeting also touched on
Pickett's future involvement.
A volunteer reported that
the four-day assembly sold
9,401 tickets.
"That's twice last year's
sales", said Pickett, adding
that the sales revenues "don't
begin to cover" the costs of
the Assembly.
Evaluation sheets had
been made available to visi-
tors, and Pickett had a col-
lection of completed sheets.
Overall, visitors reportedly
liked the programs and pre-
sentations. They also had
compliments for organization
and scheduling of events.
Shortage and condition of
public facilities such as pic-
nic tables' and restrooms
came in for some criticism, as
did the adequacy of signage
indicating where programs
were being held.
Less than half of the total


number of evaluation sheets
have been tallied and ana-
lyzed, said Pickett.
As before, funding for the
vent was a major topic of dis-
cussion, as was local and
county support.
Suggestions made included
involving the Walton County
Chamber of Commerce and
various service organiza-
tions, such as Kiwanis and
Rotary Club.
As yet, no effort has been
made to gauge the economic
effect of the assembly on lo-
cal businesses. A survey or
questionnaire was suggested.
Other suggested improve-
ments included color-coded
tickets for individual events
and passes, and longer inter-
vals between scheduled
events, giving patrons time
to get from one building to
another.
Assembly events are held
in local churches, the
Chautauqua Hall of Brother-
hood, and in private homes.
Despite shuttles and guides,
some patrons have com-
plained of having to rush to
get to events on time.
Much of the meeting's dis-
cussion was devoted to the
question of who will succeed


Pickett as president.
At the start of the Assem-
bly, Pickett announced that
she planned to step down as
president. Neither Pickett
nor the Chautauqua Center
board of directors has an-
nounced who will succeed
her.
At the meeting, Pickett
withdrew slightly from her
position, saying that there
must be a "succession strat-
egy" in order to ensure the
"continuity" of the Assembly.
Pickett observed that De-
Funiak Springs had done
nothing about Chautauqua
for 75 years. "It took an out-
sider to do it," she said.
The composition of the
board has been a matter of
some controversy. The most
frequently heard objection
has been a lack of local par-
ticipation on the board.
Pickett pointed out that
one-half of the board mem-
bers either live in Walton
County, or have some asso-
ciation with it.
A volunteer asked whether
anyone local was qualified to
be president. Pickett ob-
served that local "factions"
might cause a "fist fight."
She said that the board has



all agreed to stay on, even if
she is not president.
The meeting ended with a
discussion of scheduling next
year's Assembly, No dates
were named, though an ear-
lierAssembly was suggested,
to attract more snowbirds.

Mr. Smith goes to Washington


The DeFuniak Springs

HERALD BREEZE


will relocate to our new office
at 740 Baldwin Avenue
(between I Fix Computers and Public Defender office)

on Friday, March 10


By RON KELLEY

By the time most of you read this, the trip to Washington,
D.C., by t' ml< n r- r i,- Walton County Commission, county
staff and others, will be over.
Much has already been written and said about this trip,
so I'll try not to belabor the issue.
It is a l.u g- contingent, more than 16 people, and argu-
ably, there were some folks whose presence was probably
not vital. However, it was, by no means, a wasted trip and
the participants should be returning armed with the latest
information and strategies on how to achieve their goals
and do their jobs better..
Like many people,I. was initially skeptical about the trip
because it was originally billed as a meeting with our U.S.
House and Senate legislators regarding the widening of U.S.
331. Well, there's' certainly no need to go to Washington just
to do that.,As.ouir He"rdld and Breeze readers know, I re-
cently spent nearly an hour and a half with our U.S. repre-
sentative- and-A-r' .state representative here in DeFuniak
Springs and we covered so many topics that it has taken
two editions to share it all.
What I did not know at the time was that, like our Legis-
lative Day, held annually in Tallahassee, this trip was more
than a chance to talk to three or four politicians. As with
the Florida version, there were countless workshops and
seminars held every day (weekends, too) designed specifi-
cally for county and municipal government leaders and their
staff on a wide variety of topics from some of the nation's
foremost experts.
That was worth the price of admission, which was well
over $20,000 to Walton County taxpayers. However, if the
knowledge gleaned from these seminars can help stream-
line Walton County government and help our city councils
better represent their citizens, then it was a fair price to

Editor:
Upon reading the hate-filled letter of David Watson in
the Feb. 9 issue of the DeFuniak Herald, I was, to use his
words, "shocked and angered." History has proved that such
anti-Semitic, hateful tirades cannot be left unchallenged.
To claim that if a non-Christian wants to live in this coun-
try he/she should "act like a Christian" or practice their re-
ligion "quietly or go to countries that practice and were based
on that religion" .is abhorrent, evil, and dangerous to the
.continuation of a country so proud of its Bill of-Rights. Al-
though most people ignore such rants and just label the'
.authors crackpots, the world learned the.hard way that it is.
dangerous to ignore such rhetoric. This is the very same
rhetoric that was espoused d in Germany in the late 1930s
but ignored by reasonable, intelligent people until it was
too late.
Jewish citizens are just as American as any Christian citi-
zen and, along with other non-Christian Americans, have
every right to practice their, faith. And whether the hate
groups like it or not, Jews can and should proudly proclaim
their faith from the doors of their synagogues or from the
rooftops if they wish. It is their right. To encourage or advo-
cate the oppression of freedom of religion besmirches the
memory of those brave Americans who died fighting for the
freedoms we hold so dear. To suggest that Christians are
somehow greater "endowed with certain inalienable rights"
is a perversion and un-American.
No, non-Christians should not hide their religion. They
shouldhoul d not worship in secret. They also should most cer-
tainly not leave the country that they, too, helped establish.
... But most of all, they should not pretend to be lesser citizens
of their own country. Nor should anyone dare to try to make
...them lesser citizens. America is a country founded on free-
dom of religion. America is made stronger by its freedom of
religion. I, for one, want to keep America strong.

Did some people go that had never been before? Yes. Did
some of the attendees treat the trip as just an excuse for a
mini-vacation at taxpayer's expense? Probably. Did most of
the participants go for the right reasons and make the most
of the time they had and honestly try to learn how to do
things better? Definitely.
Although I'm sure that many of these attendees did not
appreciate having their motives questioned, it was abso-
lutely the proper response for citizens to have taken. Wal-
ton County taxpayers have every right and responsibility
to keep a close eye on what their elected officials are doing
with taxpayer dollars.
This county has suffered in the past from having a few
too many "professional out-of-town conference attendees"
in office and other positions of responsibility. The citizens
had to endure poor service while these people and their pet
staffers regularly vacationed on our tax dollars. This must
never be allowed again.
As always in a free and open society, we citizens now see
that the officials were right in going, in advocating on our
behalf and in learning how to serve us better, and we were
right to watch them closely and make sure that's what they
were doing.
That, Faithful Reader, is how good government works.




Editor,
(Regarding a proposed horse boarding facility).
There is money that the county can make from this arena.
There will be rodeos, shows, and other events that people
would hold there. There may not be many that compete in
rodeo, but I do and will tell you that there is alot of fans
there to watch.
It is not just the people who will use the facility, but the
entertainment that would come to others that just enjoy
watching people compete and ride.
Some go by statistics but I know that there is way more
than 406 people that own horses in this county -just take a
ride down the roads in Mossy Head area and you will find
that many.

Editor,
Each year, the President of the United States declares
March "Red Cross Month." This annual event provides a
unique opportunity to think about the important role the
Red Cross plays every day right here in Northwest Florida.
When we look back on 2005, we think about the hurricane
season- the storms taking aim at Northwest Florida- and
those impacting so many lives and communities along the
Gulf Coast and south Florida. Your local Red Cross responded
to these disasters by providing safe shelters, meals, coun-
seling and financial assistance for the evacuees.
During 2005, your local chapter reached more than 52,000
residents through lifesaving classes, disaster education,
military emergency communication and response to house
fires.
During this March, please take some time to think about
our Red Cross and what life would be like here in Northwest
Florida without them.
I thank each and every one of you who have in some way
helped the Red Cross keep our doors open to those in need.
Whether you are a dedicated volunteer, you've taken a class
or used our disaster services, your support has shown us
that you not only appreciate what we do but you need us:
Kathy Coonan
Chapter Chair, American Red Cross of Northwest Florida



Editor:
I'm pleased to report that the 2006 Chautauqua Assem-
bly concluded on a very positive note. This is due to the
hard work of our board, our dedicated volunteers and spon-
sors and the endless list of speakers and presenters.
We were delighted to receive the attention of the city of
DeFuniak Springs with their much appreciated donation
of $3,000, as well as use of the Chautuauqa building and
the amphitheater. Chautauqua is the signature word for
DeFuniak and it was wonderful to see it celebrated and come
to life during, the Assembly. The Board of Walton County
Commissioners also honored us with an additional $3,000
support. It is rewarding to see these governmental bodies
begin to step up to the plate and recognize the contribution
the Chautauqua Assembly has made to the quality of life in
Walton County and beyond.
I am optimistic about the future of the Chautauqua As-
sembly and its place in the heart and minds of both local
and out of town participants. I saw many familiar faces of
returning Chautauquans, as well as a great many new ones.
We seem to be adding fans each year. Our participants come
from near and far and go away feeling refreshed as well as
stimulated with warm memories of a remarkable and unique
community.
I congratulate the community on a job well done and look
forward to the continuing success and expansion of the
Assembly. As I begin to step away, I trust it will become the
legacy I have always envisioned and that it will bring both
prosperity and a spirit of true community as both individu-
als and groups work towards a common goal our heritage
and our future.
It has been a privilege to share this dream with all of you
and rewarding to see it finally begin to blossom.
I am sincerely appreciative and deeply grateful for the
support of each and every one of you.
Sincerely,
F. Diane Pickett
President and Founder
The Chautauqua Assembly


Paving operation


underway
Motorists traveling SR-83
(9th Street) from south of
Sloss Avenue to CR-185, in
DeFuniak Springs can expect
lane restrictions which be-
gan March 7, and continues
through Saturday, March 11,
between the hours of 7.a.m.
and 5 p.m. as crews from


on SR-83
Apac- Southeast. Inc. per-
form paving operations.
This work is part of the
$4.1 M resurfacing project
which began in- January of
this year.
Completion of the 7.8 miles
stretch of roadway is sched-
uled for later this summer.


Editor,
On behalf of the board of directors of the Walton County
Heritage Association we would like to thank all who attended
the recent Walton County History Fair at the fair building.
And a special word of gratitude to each of the volunteers
who submitted a record number of exhibits for.the fair. It
was a genuine pleasure to work with the Walton County Fair
Manager, Randall Infinger, as we prepared for the Saturday
exhibit, and a special salute to "The Energizer Bunny,"
Marilyn Louwerens, Jan Van Slate, Joe Gause and Bill Laird
for the volunteer hours they contributed the week prior to
the February 25 fair.
The next History Fair will be in 2008 on a date to be an-
nounced later.

Editor,
I read your editorial weekly and agree along with some of
your perceptions about the Elite Elected Persons that have
been more than a disappointing narrow-minded group of
individuals who have not thought, considered or put the citi-
zens who have trusted them to do for all of the Walton County
residents, and not just a few.
We have serious issues present. We look at the candidates'
platform, their promises, for the betterment of the coutity-
,ThlFo ,we-choose whom we think will do our will. Wp vote
,:and then possible months after election, something comes
over the Elite, and a vapor surrounds them. They become
encapsulated with something. It must be a virus only effect-
ing elected officials, city, county, state, and federal elected
ones. We need to immunize all prior to taking their elite
elected positions. Think that's possible?
Then we see no support for Shelter House. It's gone. The
Dollar General shipping center- no go. Most of the progress
is south of DeFuniak Springs. Freeport is growing leaps
and bounds, new everything. Mayor Marse is great, sadly
we have no forward thinking city council members with
growth benefits for here.
Now we have the D.O.T. haggling and the great county
thinkers say No! What were they thinking? Once again,
Where are the candidates we voted for to do the will of the
citizens to make Walton County and DeFuniak Springs grow.
It is shrinking.
Thew we have horses. Comish Cuchens, $500,000 for a
horse, something to benefit a few. We need roads, sidewalks,
salary increases for police, firefighters, deputies and he is
thinking of horses. Get with the election program promises
to all of the citizens. I like horses, but not at my tax ex-
penses. I would like the newspaper to run the candidates'
prior election promises and see if they are doing what we
want them to do for all the citizens and not just a few.

Editor,
With dismay I read "Dirt Road Paving Exemption in Peril"
on the front page of the February 23, 2006 issue of the De-
Funiak Herald.
According to the article the BCC has been notified by let-
ter that "the state" was considering "lifting" the dirt road
paving exemption. The article further stated that all the
exemption meant was an actual permit did not have to be
acquired. Allen Brown, Engineering Services Manager, said
the exemption eliminated months of the permitting process
and eliminated the fee, and they "will be paving less roads"
if the exemption is lifted.
Boy! What else will be thrown in the path to getting more
dirt roads paved? Dirt roads, in addition to being a shame
and disgrace to the people living on them, and the county in
general, are daily environmental nightmares. Every dirt
road has ditches that end in a creek or wetland where un-
counted tons of silt are deposited regularly. It's currently
the most damaging condition in existence in northwest
Florida. A paved road with concreted ditches, if the steep-
ness make that necessary, eliminates that. Anyone who has
an ounce of environmental consciousness, and nearly every-
one has some, should be concerned and let it be known.
Dry weather dirt is a potential health problem and driv-
ing on a dirt road kicks up clouds of it. Wet weather brings
on the slop of mud and clay and furious resentment. Fur-
thermore, dirt roads beat, bang, and break one's vehicle to
an early junkyard.
Why don't people move to a paved road? Well, gentle folk,
that is not an option for most. They don't have the deep
pockets and they .or their, ancestors have lived in place for
decades, some a century or more.
The article notes legislation provided the exemption. Well,
the legislature can keep the exemption, and I assume Rep-
resentative Don Brown will do everything he can to keep it,
and enlist the help of others in the coming legislative ses-
sion.
This exemption is greatly needed by northwest Florida.

BONNIE BONNER WITH Kiwanian Jason Burgess.


Bonner shares Walton

Cares, Inc. services


Kathryn E. "Bonnie"
Bonner recently informed the
DeFuniak Springs Kiwanis
Club that Walton Cares, Inc.
is open for business and they
provide services that are
greatly needed in Walton
County.
Bonner stated that. the
mission of the not-for-profit
corporation is to assist any
person displaced or disad-
vantaged by catastrophic or
other unplanned events in
sustaining quality of life, to
locate benefits, obtain food
and shelter, locate family and
nurture all ;vho seek their
care and assistance to the
fullest extent possible.
The group has recently as-
sisted with and provided
food, shelter, clothing, refer-
rals for employment, medical
care, purchased eye glasses,


assisted with utility deposits,
water, baby items and has
sent over 60,000 pounds of
relief supplies to the victims
of Katrina and Rita.
Bonner also expressed the
need for others to support
them in their goal to support
the elderly, young children,
or families that face difficult
times through no fault of
their own. She stated that
just a few dollars makes a
tremendous difference to
those who are forced by
events beyond their control to
reconstruct their lives. A hot
meal, dry clothing, diapers
and formula for babies can
make a world of difference.

Walton Cares' new office is
located at 44 Smith Road,
DeFuniak Springs. Call (850)

The Female Coming of Age


LEFT TO RIGHT, Ken Hair, CIC Executive Director, Em
Rigby, Riley Hanle, and Wendy Hanle. Photo by Fred Pitts


Six-year-olds d(


to needy child


Kasey Rigby and Riley
Hanle have learned to be
charitable at an early age.
During their combined sixth
birthday party, they decided
to donate all their gifts to
needy children. They got the
idea from their mothers,
Emily Rigby and Wendy
Hanle, when they heard
them talking about Children
in Crisis, Inc.
Children in Crisis, Inc. is a
non-profit, 501(c)(3), chart-
able organization of caring
people working together to
provide homes and establish
hope to the foster children of
our community.
In a perfect world, we
would have enough volun-
tary foster and shelter care
homes in Okaloosa and Wal-
ton counties to meet our
growing needs. Unfortu-
nately, there is'a severe
shortage of foster homes and
one-in-four children are
placed in a home that is over
capacity. This causes sib-
lings to be separated, chil-
dren to be placed out of their
county and moved from fos-
ter home to foster home,
some up to ten times per
year.
According to six-year old
Kasey, "We just wanted to
help the children. Some chil-
dren don't have as many toys
and things as me and Riley."
Ken Hair, executive direc-
tor of CIC said, "When Emily
Rigby called me and told me
that Kasey and Riley wanted
to donate their birthday pre-
sents to Children in Crisis, I
was amazed. I'm so im-
pressed with their kind ges-
ture and I know this experi-
ence will be something they
will always remember.
"Thanks to the great sup-
port from the community and
donors, CIC will begin con-
struction of the Childreni's
Neighborhood very soon."
The birthday presents, along
with other donations of cloth-
ing and toys, will be given to


needy children that will live
in the Children's Neighbor-
hood.
A groundbreaking cer-
emony will be held at the con-
struction site on March 16,
11a.m. The Children's
Neighborhood will include;
an emergency shelter, chil-
dren group homes, a neigh-
borhood center, and a recre-
ation center.
The Children's Neighbor-
hood will be located at the
west end of Hurlburt Road.
According to Mack Gay,
president of the CIC Board of
Directors, "We hope to have
the Children's Neighborhood
open and operational by the
end of the year or early
2007."
Once the Children's Neigh-
borhood is open, it will pro-
vide a home to children from
Okaloosa and Walton coun-


ti Sacred Heart Hospital on

"Stay Alive..

Just Drive"

safety

campaign

launched

By BRUCE COLLIER
The Florida Department of
Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles (DHSMV), Florida
Highway Patrol (FHP), and
Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) have
announced a public safety
campaign called "Stay
Alive...Just Drive."
"Stay Alive...Just Drive" is
the sixth phase of Operation
Safe Ride, a long-term ve-
hicular safety enforcement
program operated by FHP.
Operation Safe Ride debuted
in February of 2004.
According to FHP director
Col. Chrisopher A. Knight,
"the majority of factors that
contribute to motor vehicle
traffic crashes are mostly be-
havioral in nature."
Knight called it "impera-
tive" that motorists develop
"self-initiated strategies" to
drive less aggressively, pay
attention, and learn to share
the road.
FDOT secretary Denver
Stutler urged sobriety, safety
belts, and no distractions
while operating a motor ve-
hicle.
FHP preliminary figures
show that 3,515 people died
on Florida's roads in 2005.
This is eight percent higher
than the death toll in 2004.

BRUCE COLLIER
Visitors to the 2006 Florida Chautauqua Assembly had an
portunity to visit several area homes and places of local
d historical interest on the opening day of the assembly.
3ruce Ward, of the University of Florida's Cooperative
tension Services, hosted a nine-person driving and walk-
Stour last Thursday.
'he first stop was at Kenneth Harrison's 1898-era dwell-
,, located north of DeFuniak Springs.
Ir. and Mrs. Harrison greeted and provided lunch to the
Ir group. Harrison spoke at length on the history of the
use, and of the outbuildings.
'he structure was originally the Harrison's "weekend"
.ce, then became their primary residence.
'he structures are paneled in cedar, and much of the wood
d glass on the property was "scrounged" or recycled from
ier structures, including buildings that were being demol-
ed.
After lunch, the group headed for the Glendale Memorial
ture Preserve (GMNP). Co-owner John Wilkerson con-
cts a lively tour of the property.
L hayride tour includes a demonstration of a 100-year-old
mill, displays of "rustaphoric'" sculptures using scrap
tal, a bamboo grove, an open-air all-faith chapel, and a
tored forestry tower.
The GMNP also features a "green" burial site, offering "eco-
ically sound" burial options.

A milestone to remember


By RON KELLEY


It's not every day that one
gets a birthday card from the
president of the United
States, but it's also not every
day that one turns 100 years
old, either. Davis Nelson has
experienced both.
In February, Nelson re-
ceived a birthday card from
President Bush and the First
Lady and about two weeks
later, Nelson and his family
celebrated his having
reached the century mark
with a reception at a local
restaurant.
Nelson was born in DeFu-
niak Springs on Feb. 13, 1906
to Samuel and North Anna
Nelson. Davis was the oldest
child in the family, which
boasted four 'boys and two
girls. They lived on Graham
Avenue next to the St. Joseph
A.M.E. Church.
Most of Nelson's life was
spent working in and around
Walton County for the L&N
Railroad Company. When he
wasn't working, he enjoyed
tinkering with cars, hunting
and fishing. He is married to
Melvini Nelson, who is 89
years young. Together, they
had seven children, four of
whom are still living.
Although Davis Nelson suf-
fered a stroke and is now liv-
ing in the Chautauqua Nurs-
ing and Rehabilitation Cen-
ter, he enjoyed the recent
gathering of family and
friends and attributes his
long life to a strong belief in
God, family and helping oth-
ers.
According to granddaugh-
ter Rachelle Cowart-
Brockett, Davis Nelson has
always been the type of man
that would go out of his way
to provide for any member of
his family.
"It doesn't matter if you are
a niece, nephew, son or
daughter, to him, you are
simplyfamily.
"As I sat and looked around
the room at the reception, I
began to more appreciate my


life and the lives of my fam- 100 years old," she said. "May
ily members and the fact that we all learn from his ex-
my grandfather was actually ample."

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MARCH 9, 2006


DFS Garden Club is busy


The DeFuniak Springs
Garden Club has been busy
the last few months of the
winter. In January the club
donated 14 new gardening
related books to the library.
The club makes an annual
book donation to the DeFu-
niak Library each winter.
This year the group voted to
start adding new nature
books to the children's sec-
tion. They chose a book on
Caterpillars, one on lady-
bugs and one on plants and
seeds. All three books are
colorful and fun to read for

people that are tired of going to church and leaving the same way you
came in (hungry and hurting)? Do you feel like you are so far away from
God, in a time that you need Him the most? That maybe if you could just
get to Him, so many things in your life would change? Have you been hurt
by so called Christians, and now you won't even go into the house of God?
Do you have so many questions and no answers? There is a church you can
come to and not bejudged bywhat you're wearing or what mistakes you've'
made. Jesus says to come as you are, not come when you're perfect. If any

Planting
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC
Planting is what God is best at doing. He planted Jesus
in fertile soil through the Holy Spirit. God planted the Holy
Spirit in Jesus for anointing for service (never for show).
God watered what He planted through miracles, signs, and
wonders. The seeds of redemption were planted in those
who came to Him.
There was never a person turned away unchanged, if
that person truly wanted change. The woman caught in
adultery, at the well, the issue of blood, Mary Magdalene
and countless others were changed. My friend, God does
not leave you out. There is a seed of longing that God the
Creator planted deep inside of your being. You know that
the way you are living is not pleasing to God. Repent, ask
Christ to come into your heart. You will never be the same!
He will plant His Spirit within you, but you have to nur-
ture that Spirit through the Word of God, prayer, witness-
ing, and church attendance. Speaking of which, we invite
you to attend the Freeport United Methodist Church. You
will not find any friendlier church, people who genuinely
love Jesus, and will touch heaven for you through prayer.
Stop by here on your wAy to eternity! 10. a.m.- Sunday ser-
vice; Eve.- 6 p.m.; Wednesday 6 p.m. WZEP 1460 Sunday
;,:705-7:30 a.'fi each Sunday. '

They say memories are golden.
well maybe that is true.
We never wanted memories,
we only wanted ya'll.
A million times we needed ya'll,
a million times we cried.
If love alone could have saved ya'll.
Ya'll never would have died.
In lifewe loved ya'll dearly,
in death we love ya'll still.
In our hearts ya'll hold a place
No one could ever fill.
If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane,
We'd walk the path to heaven
and bring ya'll back again.
Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.

We love ya'll still and always will.

JUST A LITTLE TAP WILL do the job. This Freeport player
got a single, but was tagged at first. Freeport fell to Walton, 11-
1.



DID YOU KNOW?
5 Snnrts FFr.ta


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves softball
team got nine hits and took
advantage of five Freeport er-
rors as they defeated Freeport
11-1.
The Braves won the contest
between the two county rivals
in six innings as Walton
scratched across three runs in
the bottom of the sixth inning
to take advantage of the 10-
run rule and end the contest
an inning early.
Christie Wickersham got
the win for Walton as she
struck out six batters while
walking only two in the com-
plete game victory. Jesse
Tucker provided three hits and
drove in three runs while Jana
Ramsey had two hits, includ-


ing a two-run triple in the
third inning for the Braves.
Freeport starter Stephanie
Tanney was touched up for
seven hits, but hurt more by
some costly fielding errors
that allowed unearned runs to
score.
Walton dropped their first
game of the season as
Marianna defeated Walton 18-
9 on Friday afternoon. The
Bulldogs came seeking re-
venge for a 3-1 Walton victory
in February in Marianna and
got it, as Walton committed
errors that had benefitted
them in the Freeport contest
allowing Marianna to build a
large lead from which the
Braves could not recover.


WALTON'S CHRISTIE WICKERSHAM got the win for the
Lady Braves by striking out six Freeport batters. The game
was called in five innings due to the 10-run rule.

Chipley used a 5-run fifth
inning to pull away from
Ponce de Leon in a 9-6 victory
over the Pirates in a non-dis-
trict tilt played in PDL.
Chipley plated two runs in
the first inning to take a 2-0
lead, then extended the mar-
gin to 4-0 by adding two more
runs in the top of the third.
PDL tied the game in the
bottom of the third as Savan-
nah Whigham provided an
RBI- groundout along with
Tyla Yates RBI-single and a
Chipley error to knot the
game at 4-4.
Chipley responded with a
big inning in the top of the
fifth as the Tigers bats got hot
and took advantage of Pirates
miscues to stretch the lead to
9-4.
PDL responded with two
runs in the bottom of the fifth
as Lacey Griffin drove in two


runs with a timely two-out
single to cut the deficit to 9-
6.
PDL could not narrow the
gap as the pitchers settled
down for each side and closed


out the game with two score-
less innings and a 9-6 victory
for Chipley.
PDL fell to Freeport on the
road on Friday 4-2 to drop to
1-2 on the season.

Notes
By PATRICK CASEY
The OWC baseball team is
off to a 19-5 start as the squad
prepares to enter Panhandle
Conference play. The Raid-
ers have struggled to qualify
for the state tournament the
past several years as they
have finished third, and just
shy of a state tourney bid,
several times over the past
five seasons. Only the top two
teams, as in men's basketball,
advance to the state junior
college baseball tournament.
Walton's baseball team lost
a hard-fought 3-2 decision to
Pensacola Catholic on Friday
night but will get another
shot at the Crusaders in De-
Funiak Springs on Tuesday,
March 21. Walton's recent 3-
2 win over Marianna was the
first victory over the Bulldogs
in at least eight seasons on
the diamond, and continues
a swing in the Braves favor
as Walton has won the last
four football games with
Marianna, beat them for the
district championship in boys
basketball in 2005, and elimi-
nated them from the state
playoffs in boys basketball in
2006 in the first round of the
Class 3A tourney.
The PDL baseball team is
off to a good start at 4-0 un-
der Pirates Head Coach Todd
Jones. The Pirates have re-
corded solid pitching from
Chris Peterson and Cody
Carroll in the early going and
it will likely come down to
PDL and Vernon for district
supremacy later this season.
Milton, Laurel Hill, and
Port St. Joe were the three
teams from our region to rep-
resent boys basketball at the
state Dlavoffs in Lakeland


last week. Milton was the
only team to win a semifinal
game, as. the Panthers
knocked off Eustis 52-50 be-
fore falling to Sarasota
Booker 54-51 in the Class 4A
state title game. A last sec-
ond 3-pointer that would
have tied the game and sent
it into overtime rimmed out
at the buzzer. Port St. Joe
was crushed by Jacksonville
Arlington Country Day 63-34,
who went on to win the title
with ease in the champion-
ship game 73-37. Laurel Hill
had a berth to the Class A
title game in its grasp, only
to lose Austin Garrett and
Trey Shipman to fouls late in
the contest. The Hoboes lost
in overtime to undefeated
Lake Mary Prep 75-70 as that
squad hit 16-of-20 free throws
and had its bench outscore
Laurel Hill 19-0 to pull out
the win. Lake Mary lost the
title game to Miami Calusa
Prep79-65, however, who was
ranked #1. Jacksonville
Ribault lost in the semifinals
to Orlando Jones 50-44 in
Class 3A. Jones went on to
win the title with a 51-47 vic-

tory over Boca Raton St.
Andrew's.
Florida High's girls basket-
ball team was the only team
from the Panhandle\Big
Bend region to claim a state
championship in basketball
this season. North Florida
Christian's girls and Milton's
boys both lost opportunities
to claim state titles as well.
Jacksonville Ribault boys
basketball coach Bernard
Wilkes died unexpectedly on
Sunday, four days after his
squad lost in the state semi-
finals to Orlando Jones.
Wilkes, 57, suffered a heart
attack and died in his sleep,
two wins shy of becoming the
all-time winningest boys bas-
ketball coach in the state.
Wilkes had completed his
30th season after taking his
16th squad to the Class 3A
Final Four in Lakeland. His
record after 30 seasons was
758-159 with four state
championships in 1989, 1990,
1994, and 1995. His last vic-
tory was the 69-67 decision
over Walton in DeFuniak
Springs in the Region 1 final
of Class3A on February 25.

Walton Taekwondo


Academy brings


home the gold


Five students from the
Walton Taekwondo Acad-
emy, along with their parents
and head instructor, traveled
to Mount Dora, FL, to par-
ticipate in the Central
Florida Challenge held Feb-
ruary 11, 2006. In the novice
division female, 12-13-year-
olds, Zambia Campbell took
first place in forms and fin-
ished first place in sparring
in the upper division, bring-
ing home three gold medals.
Brittany Holmes took third
(bronze) in forms in the in-
termediate division female,
10-11-year-olds, and also
took first (gold) in sparring,
bringing home two medals.
Cheyenne Jordan took sec-
ond (silver) in forms in the
advanced division, female 8-
9-year-olds, but moved up in
weight class, as well as into
an all-male division for spar-
ring where she took first
(gold), bringing home two
medals.
Jackie Jordan II took first
(gold) in forms black belt di-

vision, 10-11-year-old males,
and also moved up in weight
class for the sparring, where
he took second place, bring-
ing home two metals.
Anthony Holmes took
third (bronze) in forms, inter-
mediate division males, 12-
13 years old. He sparred in
two different divisions,
where he took first (gold) and
in the 14-17-year-olds, where
he took second (silver) bring-
ing home three metals.
The five students brought
home a total of twelve met-
als with none less than a
bronze.


It appears that Walton
Taekwondo Academy is
starting 2006 off the way
they finished 2005, winning
and representing Walton
very well. Both Taekwondo
schools (DeFuniak and
Freeport) will be featured in
an upcoming copy of Kung
Fu magazine due to the stu-
dents standing in competi-
tion across the nation, also
due to the very high notori-
ety of their instructor and
his one-on-one teaching
method with each student by
several Martial Arts associa-
tions.

Rep. Miller speaks out on spending and spying


US. REPRESENTATIVE JEFF MILLER during a recent
visit to DeFuniak Springs


By RON KELLEY
Recently, U.S. Representa-
tive Jeff Miller, along with
State Representative Don
Brown, sat down for a private
interview with the Herald-
Breeze and talked about the
'big issues.'
One of those topics was out
of control spending and re-
cent federal budgets so full
of pork barrel projects (such
as the famous Bridges To No-
where) that old records for
wasteful spending have been
shattered.
"I sit in some of our con-
ference meetings and I listen
to our leadership and some
of the reasons given are,
'Well, if the Democrats were
in control, they'd be spending
a whole lot more money,' and
I'm like,'But they're not we
are and we should be spend-
ing less.


"Yes, people are not going
to like some of the (program)
cuts and yes, we're going to
have to defend them, but the
longer we allow programs
that don't function that
there are no positive out-
comes the worse it gets. You
give life to these programs
and it never goes away," he
said.
State Rep. Brown was re-
minded of an earlier state-
ment he made after his first
year in the state legislature.
He said, "We don't have a rev-
enue problem here, we have
a spending problem." Con-
gressman Miller agreed and
praised the state for balanc-
ing its budget, something the
federal government has not
done since the Clinton ad-
ministration.
"Our problem is man, we
get money from everywhere.


It just comes in. I mean, $2.7
trillion.
"I was talking with Jeb
(Bush) several weeks ago and
we were discussing that,
with things like Katrina and
the war in Iraq, it's not un-
common for us (Congress) to
do emergency supplementals
that are bigger than the state
budget! It's a lot of money,
but then you look at $2.7 tril-
lion and it's a lot, but it's not
a lot.
"Taxpayers will be less
likely to voice concern if they
know that you are being good
stewards with their money,"
he said.
Miller lamented the con-
tinuation of the "welfare-
state" entitlement programs
that seem to perpetuate gen-
erations of non-productive
citizens, but said the cure
will be painful and unpopu-


lar.
"Those that pay no taxes
and derive services to a
greater extent from the gov-
ernment will be very quick to
complain when we start rein-
ing in those programs, be-
cause that's how they sur-
vive. Some people need that,
but the vast majority of them
don't and I'm here to say that
I want to help those that
need help, but I am tired of
government at all levels pay-
ing for the existence of people
who don't need government
handouts.
"It's been a real eye-open-
ing experience in Washing-
ton to see just how the sys-
tem works and how it has
evolved. We're tired of the
way business has been oper-
ating here for the last five

Blackshear shares progress with SWCC


By LEAH STRATMANN
Pat Blackshear holds one
of the more visible and de-
manding jobs in Walton
County government as direc-
tor of planning and develop-
ment. As such, she and her
staff are routinely called
upon to provide expert opin-
ion on matters of evpelop-
ment to the county's plan-
ning commission and the
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC).
Last week she spoke to the
South Walton Community
Council (SWCC)."Founded in
1995, the SWCC is an orga-
nization of residents, busi-
ness owners, property own-
ers, workers and neighbor-
hood groups whose mission is
to preserve, protect and en-
hance the quality of life and
natural environment of
south Walton County," ac-
cording to the website for the
organization. The wishes of
SWCC often run counter to
the desires 'of developers in
south Walton County, but the
group is working with
Blackshear to find solutions
when, problems arise.
Blackshear said she inher-
ited a department under-
staffed to compete with the
needs of developers, and
those residents concerned
with environmental over-
sight. She praised the.cqunty
commissioners for allowing
her to increase the size of the
staff and to create a county
department wholly devoted
to environmental concerns,
saying "our comprehensive


plan is probably one of the
best in the state in terms of
environmental protection,
particularly now that we
have an environmental staff
on board to address those
problems."
Noting the department had
increased the number of staff
positions, she said, "We have
some well qualified and top
notch staff."
Speaking of the future and
where the county was going,
Blackshear said she was
pleased the commission sup-
ported a proposal to make
Point Washington a historic
district. "This is very excit-
ing. Point Washington is one
of the jewels in this county."
Another big project loom-
ing for Blackshear's depart-
ment is to update the future
land use map. "We will be
going through and doing a
parcel evaluation of every
parcel in the county to get the
future land map updated.
This is probably the biggest
task going through the map
and reworking it. If this is
put in your plan, you do not
have amendments to the
plan every month. This
should delineate land use
designations for years to
come. We will be holding lots
of public workshops to get
this right," she promised.
"Reworking the (compre-
hensive) plan is likely to be
an emotional issue but all we
want to do is make it better.
In the past isolated wetlands
were not considered wet-
lands that needed to be pro-
tected. Those are more jew-


els to this community."
Blackshear noted it has
been rewarding working
with developers who under-
stand what we are trying to
do, and noted the CR-30A
Genesis report has been com-
pleted, which does a very
good job of laying out the is-
sues and solutions to prob-
lems of development along
CR-30A.
Responding to a question
about the status of making
U.S. 331 four lanes,
Blackshear said the Depart-
ment of Transportation has
said the project is not cost
feasible right now, except for
obtaining the right of way.
"The DOT did move up the
right of way acquisitions,
which generally moves up
projects like four-laning. I
feel the only way we can get
the money is to acquire spe-
cially earmarked money from
the federal government. That
may be what we have to do
here. We have to lobby hard."
Addressing the problem of
lot splitting, which is a con-
siderable concern in south
Walton County, Blackshear
said she felt was needed was
the creation of a statue de-
tailing the minimum lot size
which could be split.
Lot splitting has occurred
when a person owning a par-
cel petitions the county to
build another house on an
existing piece of land, such as
a mother-in-law cottage. In
reality, what happens is the
owner simply rents out the
additional home.
"Lot splitting happens the


most in Commissioner Cindy
Meadows' district. I could
take my lot and build a home
for my son and a home for my
mother on one 75-foot by 150-
foot lot. I'm close to mean
high water and I could rent
split lots for high dollars.
Everybody likes to make
money, but this destroys
neighborhoods," she said.
"Only about 10 percent really
have other family members
on those lots. I plan to go to
board with a recommenda-
tion on this issue in about
three weeks.
"We cannot regulate hon-
esty," Blackshear notes.
"What is needed is a mini-
mum lot size for splitting."
Blackshear also said a neigh-
borhood plan sets the rules
for neighborhoods. Lot splits
can be dealt with in neigh-
borhood plans. Lot splitting
can double the density of a
neighborhood, but neighbor-
hood plans can deal with this
and any neighborhood can
create a neighborhood plan.
Former county commis-
sioner Lane Rees questioned
Blackshear on how her de-
partment is held accountable
to the public they serve.
She replied, "Success is
when we have a better
handle on enforcement and
oversight. Those are the
things I'm looking at, ending
the split lots. The other
benchmark is our depart-
ment getting 'a project
through from the beginning
to the end in 90 days. Getting

Old Seagrove seawall solution still being explored


By DOTTYNIST
A solution is still being
sought for a series of seawalls
built by homeowners which
have been discovered to be on
public property.

The walls were constructed
in response to Hurricane
Dennis-related erosion on
Seagrove Beach.
Local engineer Terry
Anderson has been in discus-
sions with county staff
aimed at finding a solution
to the problem of the mis-
placed retaining walls,
which are located gulfward of
eleven homes on publicly
dedicated beach in the


Seagrove first and third ad-
dition subdivisions, along
CR-30A near the CR-395 in-
tersection.
Anderson said he became
involved when the home-
owners contacted him to en-
list his help in getting perma-
nent state permits for their
walls. At that time, county
emergency permits for had
been pulled by the 'ntrac-
tor to build the structures
and construction was ongo-
ing, Anderson commented.

According to building per-
mits for the seawalls, the con-
tractor was Choctawhatchee
Bay Piling & Dock, Inc. the


company owned by Ro
Cuchens, a Walton County
commissioner.
Anderson said that surveys
were required for the state
permit application, and that
the homeowners did not
know that the walls were lo-
cated outside their property
boundaries until those sur-
veys were conducted.
He said a number of the
property boundaries were
shown to be in the area of
the sidewalks on the beach
side, just a short distance
from the homes. The two old
Seagrove subdivisions origi-
nally had sidewalks running
the length of the beach, over-


looking beach bluffs to the'
south of the lots lying south
of CR30-A. A public "sv. im-
ming park" was dedicated to
the public along the beach as
part of the subdivision plats.

Anderson commented that
notwithstanding the situa-
tion, he could not imagine
the walls having being built
any further landward and
still serve their protective
function.
He said his discussions
with the county have been
"very productive" and that
he is confident that they will
yield a solution that will be
acceptable to all involved.

MAURICE GILBERT, South Walton Fire District chair-
man, addresses the district's fire commissioners and other
attendees at the March 6 monthly meeting.



Fire district to


proceed with


dispatch center


By DOTTY NIST
The South Walton Fire Dis-
trict (SWFD) continued to
discuss plans for an emer-
gency dispatch center south
of the bay at the district's
March 6 regular meeting.
The center would house
dispatchers employed by the
SWFD who dispatch assis-
tance for services provided by
the fire district, including,
fire rescue, and emergency
medical services south of the
bay. Current plans are for the
center to only handle calls
requesting services provided
by'the SWFD. How those
calls will be delivered is yet
to be determined.
Interest by the district in
obtaining a primary public
safety answering point
(PSAP), which requires
county government approval,
and later a Feb. 14 formal
request for a secondary
PSAP, became controversial.
The fire district had sought
to set up the PSAP in con-
junction with the dispatch
center, which has been in the
planning stages since March
2005.
The fire district enlisted its
own dispatch staff in Nov.


2004 when calls for services
provided by the district rose
to over 4,000 per year. The
SWFD dispatchers were
housed at the county Emer-
gency Operations Center in
DeFuniak Springs. However,
attempts to transfer 911 calls
to those dispatchers within
the EOC were unsuccessful
and SWFD dispatchers have
not had the ability to speak
with callers. By contrast
there has been no problem
transferring calls to locations
outside the EOC such as the
sheriffs south Walton sub-
station.
Based on the above difficul-
ties, the SWFD fire commis-
sioners made the decision to
pursue the south-of-the-bay
dispatch center last spring.

The March 6 SWFD regu-
lar meeting drew a small
crowd of attendees who were
interested in what the fire
district was planning in con-
nection with the dispatch
center. Most had been in at-
tendance at the Feb. 14 Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners where the

The Walton County
Sheriff's Office (WCSO) and
the Medical Examiner (ME)
are investigating the circum-
stances surrounding the
death of a man in south Wal-
ton County on February 28.
WCSO deputies responded
to "an apparent suicide call"
10343 East CR-30A.
An incident report from
WCSO states that officers ar-
rived to find the body of
James S. Izard, 57, in the
master bathroom shower,
seated on a towel with a gun
shot wound to the head.
The gunshot wound ap-
peared to have been self-in-
flicted.
The officers took the state-
ment of the deceased's wife,
Sarah Warner Izard. Mrs.
Izard said that she and her
husband at awakened at
around 8:30 a.m. that morn-
ing, and that he had told her
I he wanted to lie down.
Mrs. Izard went to the gro-
cery, and returned at around,
9:30 a.m. She spent about an
r house ad4a half daing.-hoase-


work before going to check
on her husband.
She found him in the bath-
tub, already dead. When' she
went to call the police, she
noticed that the phone had
been unplugged.
Mrs. Izard told police that
she and her husband had
been drinking heavily the
previous night. He jokingly
said he was going to get a gun
and shoot himself in the

head.
Mrs. Izard said that she did
not take the remark seri-
ously.
The report states that the
deceased had lost his job as
a coach at Barry College a
year ago, and that he and his
wife had moved to the area
following the dismissal.
The ME in Pensacola per-
formed an autopsy on March
1. Results are still pending.

Water Saving

Tips

Cut back on rinsing if your dishwasher is new.
Newer models clean more thoroughly
than older ones.


SBathe your young children together.


SInsulate hot water pipes so you don't have to run
as much water to get hot water to the faucet.


Cook food in as little water as possible.
This will also retain more nutrients.


Select the proper size pans for cooking.
Large pans require more cooking water
than may be necessary.


SWhen \'ou give your pet fresh water, don't
throw the old water down the drain.
Use it to water your trees or shrubs.


SIf you accidentally drop ice cubes when filling
your glass from the freezer, don't throw them in


the sink, drop t'


m in a house plant instead.

THE WALTON COUNTY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE Ambassadors and staff of the
Baytowne Golf Club at Sandestin celebrated their grand re-opening with a ribbon cutting
on Feb. 27. Baytowne Golf Club, known as the most popular course at Sandestin for many
years now brings a fresh face to its familiar layout. Craig Falanga, Director of Golf Sales
and Marketing, states that the Golf Club has been completely renovated and now offers not
only a great resort golf experience, but also one of the only places in the Southeast with
junior tee boxes and certification as a U.S. Kids Golf Family Course. With a course routing
that takes guests from the beach to the bay, and boasts some of the only elevation change in
the area, Baytowne is as forgiving from the forward tees as it is challenging from the cham-
pionship ones. Hours of operation are seasonal from 7am-6pm.

OWC breaks new
ground as they pres-
ent their first
Shakespeare pro-
duction perform-
ance performed by
local actors. The
3 erry Wives of Wind-
sor hits the stage
March 8 and contin-
ues throughout this
weekend.

The Fine Arts Department
at OWC presents a
Shakespeare classic, with a
new acting troop. The per-
formance will take place in
the Sprint Theatre.
Set in the contemporary
Elizabethan era, the story
centers around the arrival of
Sir John Falstaff, companion
of the medieval KinigHenry
SV. He arrives in Windsor to
obtain financial advantages
by dating two women at the
same time.
From the last part of the
previous sentence, you can
already tell where this story
is heading. I would assume
the, statement, "I only knew
then what I know now,"
would certainly apply.
The "merry wives" are not
interested in the aging, over-

weight and egotistical
Falstaff, but they decide to
take advantage of the situ-
ation to their comical amuse-
ment. They also use Falstaff
as a guinea pig to show re-
venge for his indecent as-
sumption towards both la-
dies.
Of course, only bad things
could possibly come
Falstaffs way after making
two women turn to revenge.
Under the stage direction
of Clint Mahle, the acting
troop is breaking ground at
OWC by producing the first
Shakespeare performance
that does not require a trav-
eling troop coming from out-
side the college.
The cast includes: Falstaff,
Bruce Collier of DeFuniak
Springs; Anne Page, Lizzy
Hawkins of Destin; as Mis-
tress Page, Alicia Leonard of
DeFuniak Springs; as Dr.
Caius, Tom Mosley of Free-
port, as Host, Bruce Culpep-
per of DeFuniak Springs; as
Pistol and servant, Clint
Mahle ofNiceville;as Fentonr
and Nym, Malachi Mosley of
Freeport; -and as Master
Ford, Fraser Sherman of
Fort Walton Beach.

Tickets are now on sale for
the production for $10 for
students and $15 for adults.

Tickets on sale for The Merry Wives of Windsor at OWC


Tickets are now on sale for
Okaloosa Walton College
(OWC)'s 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 iTwo, and
is one of Shakespeare's most
popular creations.

Legend has it that
Shakespeare wrote this play
at the request of Queen
Elizabeth I, 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 be
perform. 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 DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MARCH 9, 2006


THE EIGHT FLASHING WARNING LIGHTS surrounding the intersections of CR-283
and CR-395 with US. 98 will stay at those intersections following a Feb. 28 decision by the
Walton County Board of County Commissioners.



Flashing lights to remain


at CR-283 and CR-395


By DOTTY NIST
By popular demand, the
flashing warning lights
around two U.S.98 intersec-
tions in south Walton County
will remain in those locations
to alert motorists.
The eight warning lights at
CR-383 and CR-395 had been
put up by the county in the
interest of safety prior to traf-
fic lights being installed at
the two intersections. The
traffic lights were installed in
fall 2005.
Recently the county was
told by the state Department
of Transportation (DOT)
that the flashing lights were
not in the proper location but
were too close to the intersec-
tions to provide proper mo-
torist warning.
To remain in the area of the
intersections, the warning
lights would need to be
moved to a greater distance
from the traffic lights. The
county's engineering depart-
ment also stated that the
flashing lights were no
longer needed now that the
traffic lights were in place.
Recently the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) had
therefore voted to remove the
flashing lights to be placed at
other locations in the county.


After that, they heard from
citizens who wanted the
flashing lights to remain at
the two intersections. There
was discussion of the mat-
ter at the Feb. 28 BCC meet-
ing.
Point Washington resident
Ed Berry had pointed out
that the two intersections
were the scene of 42 acci-
dents and 12 fatalities in the
18 months prior to the traf-
fic lights being installed.
Berry continued tlat since
that time, with the traffic
lights and flashing warning
lights in operation, there has
been only one accident and
no fatalities at the intersec-
tions'
"We understand that the
removal of the warning sig-
nals will not impact these
intersections to the degree of
danger that we once saw;"
Berry stated, "However, with
all the safety measures cur-
rently in place, the number
speak for themselves.
We cannot take the chance
of risking lives by removing
any of these safety devices."
"Certainly there is hard
evidence that the present
situation has saved lives and
prevented crashes," agreed
south Walton County resi-


The Child Advocate
By Julie Hurst, Director,
Emerald Coast Children's Advocacy Center

This month the Children's Advocacy Center has turned
the column over to local celebrity Aimee Shaffer. She has a
very important message to share about shaken baby syn-
drome.
"Common sense more and more that phrase seems to be
the terminology of a by-gone era. Common sense the type
of knowledge that was just ingrained into your being -maybe
by your family, maybe by your church or schooling but
knowledge that seemed inexcusable not to know.
"Things like knowing that shaking a baby can cause blind-
ness, deafness, paralysis, even the end of life itself. but sadly,
almost fifty percent of Americans aren't aware of that bit of
"common sense" knowledge. That's why I'm going to share
with you now what i know about sbs.back in the mid-nine-
ties, my best friend Janet got a phone call in the middle of
the night from her daughter from the emergency room.
Nicole was so upset. Janet could barely understand her
daughter's words, "they don't expect Kimberlin (Janet's
granddaughter) to live.., and mom, they say it's something
called 'shaken baby syndrome."'
"We all learned then that shaken baby syndrome is when
an infant/baby has been shaken/tossed, however momen-
tarily, and permanent damage has occurred. In Kimberlin's
case, she did survive being shaken by her father, but sur-
vive is a kind word. Kimberlin was blind from her retinas
being torn she was fed through a tube and she was
about seventy percent brain-damaged. It was all from a
few shakes from her at-his-wit's-end father while he was
babysitting the first night. Nicole went back to work to help
support her family. After over three years of receiving in-


dent Glenda Wood.
"If it is not broken, why fix
it?" Wood asked.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows said she had
heard from a number of citi-
zens expressing similar opin-
ions.
Ryan Douglass of Walton
County Public Works said
that moving the lights to
DOT-approved locations in
the area of the intersections
would need to be contracted
out, since training connected
with moving the signs and
wiring systems is required
that staff does not have. He
estimated the relocation cost
for the eight flashing lights
at $35,000.
Bill Imfeld, county finance
director, told the commission-
ers that those costs could be
funded from the public works
contingency account:
District 2 Commissioner
Ken Pridgen moved to use
those moneys to relocate the
flashing lights to DOT-ap-
proved locations around the
CR-283 and CR.393 inter-
sections. Meadows seconded,
and the motion was approved
unanimously.
On March 7, Douglass said
he expects the relocation
project to take place within
a few weeks' time.

2,000 feet

of beach

restored
With necessary repairs to
the Liberty Island dredge com-
pleted, over 2,000 feet of criti-
cally eroded beach has now
been restored in western Wal-
ton County, according to Brad
Pickel.
Pickel, beach management
director for the South Walton
Tourist Development Council,
said mechanical difficulties
with the dredge were corrected
last week at that Liberty Is-
land returned to the project
site on March 4..
"The beach area within the
Tops'l Beach and Racquet Re-
sort is almost complete and
the construction is expected to
continue eastward this week
into Four Mile Village," Pickel
commented on March 6.


tense care from her maternal family, Kimberlin died from
her SBS wounds. She leaves a still-saddened mother, sister,
and grandmother and me.
"My friend Janet took her grief and anger about losing
her grandchild and transformed it into the energy that drove
her to getting the Kimberlin West Act of 2002 passed here
in Florida. The law provides that hospitals in the sunshine
state inform-parents about shaken baby syndrome. All par-
ents need to learn that babies communicate by crying and
sometimes babies cry so long you start to cry! But when,
and not if, but when you start to lose patience, put the baby
safely in the crib, and walk away. Take a moment. Calm
down. It's natural to get frustrated with a baby that can't
communicate to you with words, but it's never okay to take
that frustration out on that innocent child. Walk away. Call
a friend. Step outside and get a breath of fresh air.
"Call 1-800-help-fla. W wonderful people will help you over
your moment, and spare you and your family the forever
kind of pain that my friend Janet and her family continue
to bear over their missing Kimberlin." "
To honor my friend Janet, I'll speak out about sbs to any
group or organization. Contact me at cumulus broadcasting
in Fort Walton beach at 850-243-2323.
Learn to cope with a crying child. That's just good com-
mon sense.

MILLER FF

years at least, and we want
to get back to sound fiscal
sanity," said Miller.
He also addressed the
question on the need for lob-
byists and what happens
when things go wrong, such
as the recent disclosures in-
volving lobbyist Jack
Abramoffs buying the influ-
ence of members of Congress.
Miller advocated tighter
controls, but clearly sees a
need for lobbyists.
"Every organization on the
face of this earth probably
has a lobbyist somewhere.
Farm Bureau has a whole
group of lobbyists. The AARP
has a whole group of lobby-
ists, um, educators, lawmak-
ers," said Miller. "When you
look at what a lobbyist does,
the perception of most people
is that you have Lobbyist A,
who's over here advocating
for his position. What people
forget is that you also have
Lobbyist B, C and D, who are
on the back side, lobbying for
the other position. So, it's the
legislator's responsibility to
make the decision as to what
is the best route to go."
"What you run into is two
percent of the lobby corps is
rotten to the core and 98 per-
cent of the people who are out
there are doing the job that
they were hired to do, and
that is to present the facts for
their organization," he said.
What about the large
amounts of soft-money cam-
paign contributions, gifts and
special favors that some lob-
byists use to "sweeten the
deal?"
Miller replied, "The answer
is that may be the percep-
tion, but that's not the way it
works in the real world and
the media has had a great
role in developing the percep-
tion of what a lobbyist's role
is. I will also say that, in
Washington, someone like
Jack Abramoff came to be
what he was because of the
way the system was setup.
In D.C., there are authoriz-
ers of which I am one and
appropriators. Authorizers
are the ones that are. sup-
posed, to authorize the. pur-
chase of 20 airplanes.and the
appropriators are supposed to
come behind us and say,
'Okay, they've authorized 20,
we're going to appropriate 15.'
That's the way it's supposed
to work.
"What's happened is, the
appropriators have gotten
such power that they appro-
priate without us authorizing
- and they can do that. And
that's why the system needs
to change.
"I think it's unfortunate
that the perception has been
created that lobbyists in and
of themselves are evil, be-
cause they are not," said
Miller. Rep. Brown agreed,
saying, "They serve a legiti-


ROM FRONT

mate function when they do
the right thing and provide
valuable information."
Miller also discussed
highly controversial issue of
President Bush ordering the
National Security Agency
(NSA) and others to spy on
Americans, without the ben-
efit of warrants or Constitu-
tional authorization. He de-
fended the action as neces-
sary.
"This whole issue NSA is-
sue has been labeled by some
at 'domestic spying' and that
is not what it is. It is calls
coming into or out of the
United States to suspected al-
Queada or terrorist organiza-
tions. That's what they're
looking for and I think the
president has been abso-
lutely within his Constitu-
tional rights to do what he's
done.
"I think the New York
Times has done great damage
to a very valuable source of
information. The fact that we
have not had an attack since
September 11 is due, in part,
to the ability to find these
people where they are," said
Miller.
As for domestic spying,
Miller blamed Democrats for
misrepresenting the facts.
."I find it a little bit disin-
genuous for many of the
Democrats to talk about do-
mestic wiretapping when,
you know, Coretta Scott King
just died, and Martin Luther
King and they were both
wiretapped by Bobby
Kennedy and the Democrats.
That is domestic spying.
What the president is doing
now is keeping the American
people safe."
Regarding the Bush
administration's request for
access to all Google.com user
search activity, Miller said, "I
have some concerns with
that," said Miller. "I'm learn-
ing a little more about what
government says they are try-
ing to, do, but again, that is
domestiqspying) in my mind
and I don't know that we need
to.go there."


PROGRESS
FROM FRONT
project review down to 90
days gives the staff more time
to do the work without creat-
.ing a backlog.
"The commissioners have
given me the tools I need to
do the job. They have sup-
ported what we needed. They
have been wonderful. They
supported us to have vehicles.
I don't think there is anything
we need that I don't think the
board would support," she
said.

CENTER


fire district's request for a sec-
ondary PSAP was rejected by
the commissioners after be-
ing strongly opposed by the
Walton County Sheriffs Of-
fice.
The group included several
members of the Walton
County Taxpayer's Associa-
tion (WCTA) and representa-
tives of the sheriffs office and
county emergency response
office.
SWFD Chairman Maurice
Gilbert welcomed the attend-
ees, observing that there are
usually few members of the
public at monthly meetings
and little or no public com-
ment.
Bonnie McQuiston of the
WCTA was concerned about
spending on the proposed dis-
patch center, which has come
to $30,000 and on the staff-
ing level that would be nec-
essary to handle calls coming
into the center.
She also said she had con-
tacted other neighboring ar-
eas and that she had found
that no fire department there
had a PSAP; all were as-
signed to law enforcement of-
fices.
SWFD Chief Les Hallman
responded that the SWFD is
in a different category from
most fire departments be-
cause it is an independent
special district with the call
volume, staff and a responsi-
bility to provide dispatching
of services to the community.
Bob Hudson, another
WCTA member, said he did
not challenge the SWFD's au-

thority or ability to provide
these services to south Walton
County. Hudson said he
thought many citizens, as well
as the commissioners were
caught off guard by the SWFD
request on Feb. 14. He was not
sure the commissioners had a
complete understanding of the
SWFD request.
Sandestin homeowner and
resident Jim Rice supported
the effort to bring the SWFD
dispatchers "closer to home."
"I don't see any problem
with it," he said.
Fire commissioner Harry
Millsaps suggested renewing
a dialog with the commission-
ers regarding the
organization's dispatch goals.
Gilbert assured the attend-
ees that the fire commission is
"very concerned with tax is-
sues." Several of the fire com-
missioners are current or past
members of the WCTA, and he
himself served as president of
the organization for about five
years, he noted.
"All we do is centered
around the best interests of
the citizens of south Walton;"
he said, "we are an indepen-
dent fire district and report
directly to the citizens of south
Walton and no one else."
"We will insure that they
receive the very best fire and
rescue services that is avail-
able and compatible with our
budget," Gilbert concluded.
Hudson requested that the
fire commissioners keep the
public involved and updated in
their efforts with the dispatch
center.
