WC commissioners


and staff travel to


Washington D.C.


Walton County commissioners and staff
traveled to Washington, D. C. last week to
meet with our congressional delegation about
issues important to Walton County. The del-
egation also attended the 2006 National As-
sociation of Counties Legislative Conference.
Walton County officials were among the
more than 2,000 county officials from around
the country who came to help strengthen the
voice of county government on Capitol Hill.
Walton County delegates attended work-
shops on a variety of topics, including growth
management, emergency management is-
sues, BRAC realignment, human resource
topics, immigration, and the methamphet-
amine crisis.
Commissioners Brannon, Meadows,
Cuchens and Pridgen and Assistant County
Administrator Shirl Williams attended ses-
sions covering a myriad of topics from home-
land security, wetlands issues, catastrophic
disaster issues, transportation, and balanc-
ing budgets. Commissioner Larry Jones did
not attend this year's convention.
Legal Services Director David Hallman
participated in advanced leadership training
about "Protecting Your County from Fraud
and Abuse." This educational seminar cov-
ered payroll abuse, check tampering, billing
schemes, kickback schemes and conflicts of
interest.. Another session of interest to
Hallman was "Building Consensus in Issues
of Power, Disputes and Conflict." This three
hour seminar was conducted by some of the
top mediation lawyers iin the United States.
Hallman said the topics discussed were rel-
evant to issues he is currently dealing with.
Gary Mattison, Human Resource director,
attended a session about NACo's prescrip-
tion drug discount card program and how to
curb the high cost of description drugs for
county employees. A savings on health care
costs for employees is also a savings to the
taxpayers. He also attended a session on how
to keep pension plans sblvent.

Another hot topic for Mattison was pre-
sented by Gale Arden, director of the
Disabled and Elderly Health Programs
Group. The Medicare prescription drug ben-
efit program is the biggest change since
Medicare's inception. This change is of vital
importance to older county employees and
retirees.
A topic of interest to assistant finance di-
rector Wanda Smith was "Saving CDBG: The
Battle Continues." Walton County and its
municipalities have received CDBG grants
in the past for paving roads, building fire sta-
tions, water and sewer projects and other
neighborhood revitalizations projects. There
is a movement in the federal sector to dis-
mantle these programs.
Sara Comander,. Public Information coor-
dinator attended educational sessions on "Ef-
fective Emergency Communications" and "Is
Your County Ready for the Next Catastrophic
Disaster?" During a hurricane or other di-
saster, public information works hand in
hand with emergency management to keep
the public informed. Communication before,
during and after a hurricane is vital to pub-


lic safety and welfare. Part of Comander's
duties while in Washington was to document
the commissioner's activities to inform the
public and the press about the trip.
Commissioner Scott Brannon's assistant,
Susan Burgess attended several sessions on
the growing.methamphetamine problem, im-
migration reform and other issues the county
will be facing as we continue to grow.
For the first time in history, the commis-
sioners were joined by the mayors of Paxton,
Freeport and DeFuniak Springs as'they vis-
ited the offices of our congressional delega-
tion. It was evident this powerful group rep-
resented the voters of Walton County.
Susie Perez in Senator Bill Nelson's office,
and Bydon Ross in Senator Mel Martinez'
office listened as the group discussed the
four-laning of U. S. 331, a new Bay bridge
and beach nourishment. Congressman Jeff
Miller talked with the group for over an hour
about these critical issues.


They met with Congressman Allen Boyd
in the Capitol as he waited to cast his vote
on a vital piece of legislation.
Tourist Development director Kriss Titus
and Chamber of Commerce president Dawn
Moliterno also took the message to Washing-
ton about the need for additional funds for
beach nourishment and the critical need for
U. S. 331 to be four-laned. Nourishing the
26 miles of beaches in Walton County is vi-
tal to the continued growth of the tourist in-
dustry in Walton County. Because the height
of tourist season is also the middle of hurri-
cane season, evacuation routes are important
not only to local citizens but visitors as well.
Commissioner Meadows, assistant county
administrator Shirl Williams and Public In-
formation coordinator Sara Comander met
with Christopher Kearney, Deputy Assistant
Secretary of the U. S. Department of the In-
terior concerning the Miramar Beach Access
and adjacent acreage.
The county wants to add additional park-
ing and amenities to the two acre site to re-
lieve some of the parking along heavily trav-
eled Scenic Gulf Drive. This access was
deeded to Walton County by the state of
Florida, with a provision from the U.S. De-
partment of Interior that the 2.18 acre par-
cel be used for recreational purposes; and the
county needs the concurrence of the DOI be-
fore proceeding.
Claire Bannerman, chair of the Scenic 30A
Corridor Advocacy Group met with officials
at the U. S. Department of Transportation
about designation of CR- 30A as a National
Scenic Byway. National Scenic Byways in
Florida include U. S. A1A, the Tamiami Trail,
and the Indian River Lagoon Scenic High-
way. Florida DOT staff that oversees the Sce-
nic Highway program suggested Walton
County also pursue the federal designation.
Benefits of this federal designation would
be grant possibilities, name recognition for
the area and marketing of the road and area

More police protection


on way for DeFuniak


Springs residents


By LEIGH STRICKLAND

Citizens of DeFuniak
Springs will soon have the
comfort of added police pro-
tection.
Police Chief Mike
Adkinson spoke before the
DeFuniak Springs. City
Council on Monday night, re-
questing an increase in the
number of sworn officers
with the police department.
This is an effort to bring the
department up to minimum
staffing levels.
City Finance Director Sara
Bowers recommended that
there was money in the po-
lice department budget for
the salary and benefits of
only one additional officer.
Adkinson stated that the
most the department could
realistically take on right
now would be three new of-
ficers.
Councilman Roy McLeod
said that he wants to add
three officers, but that he
would settle for two.
Bowers indicated that
funds for a second officer


could be found in the city
budget.
In a unanimous vote, the
council approved adding two
new officers to the police
force.
Local' business owner
Patricia Goff Owen, whose
business was vandalized last
week, thanked the council for
giving the police department
two new people. She said that
there has been an epidemic
of break-ins in DeFuniak and
that this should be treated
aggressively. She concluded
with a simple cry, "Help!"
In other news, the council
also considered a controver-
sial petition to change the
zoning of a piece of property
on Shoemaker Drive from ag-
ricultural to R-2 multiple
family residential, where de-
veloper, Wayne Jacobs, plans
to build 67 single-family
town homes.
In a public hearing, resi-
dent John Ward spoke
against the proposal. He
voiced fear that up to 160
units could be built resulting
in increases in traffic, noise,


crime, arid property taxes.
"You wouldn't want it next to
you," he said.
Citizen Don Counts also
spoke against the zoning
change, saying that the in-
crease in traffic on Shoe-
maker Drive could be dan-
gerous to the neighborhood's
children.
Councilman McLeod asked
if Ward had attended the
planning meeting. He said,
"The proper forum for these
objections should have been
at the Planning Board, not
here." However, under cur-
rent city policies, residents
who might be potentially af-
fected by development pro-
posals are not notified about
Planning Board meetings.
Councilman James
Coffield recommended a
change in the policy to allow
for notice to be given to citi-
zens before planning board
meetings instead of waiting
until it comes before the De-
Funiak Springs City Council.

Flu pandemic


tabletop exercise


held at EOC

tV-N


By BRUCE COLLIER
Health care workers, law
enforcement officers, emer-
gency service providers, and
business and community
leaders attended a four-hour
tabletop exercise at Walton
County Emergency Opera-
tions Center (WCEOC).
The subject of the exercise,
which was sponsored by
Florida State University
(FSU), was a hypothetical
influenza pandemic.
The workshop drew about
40 participants, who gath-
ered in groups around com-
puter terminals. Each group


was assigned to work up an
aspect of a community-based
action plan in the event of an
outbreak of influenza.
Influenza, specifically the
Asian Avian influenza or
"bird flu," has been the sub-
ject of worldwide media in-
terest. Nearly daily, reports
of infected birds an' people
are reported or pos ~-: on the
Internet.
According to a release sent
out by Walton County Health
Department public informa-
tion officer Debora Campbell,

EDITOR'S COMMENT





The Sunshine State in the dark


By RON KELLEY

By now, many of you have heard of Sunshine Sunday and
you know that despite our much publicized open records
laws in the Florida, a test of the system showed that over
40 percent of the county and city governmental bodies in
Florida don't want you to know what they're doing.
That should freeze the very marrow in your bones. Why,
if government is as honest as it so loudly claims, would it
want to hide from you? What are these county, city and law
enforcement agencies afraid you are going to see?
Those are questions that demand answers. Here is an even
scarier question :,did you know that state lawmakers (the
people you elected) are working right this moment to make
sure that have even less access to public records?
We in the news business are often accused of screaming
about violations of open record and Sunshine Laws because
it benefits us in some way.
Interesting claim. What's more interesting is who makes
those accusations. In every case, it's a government official
complaining about opening their books to the press and, by
extension, to the public. Isn't that funny?
The press does not specifically benefit from open records,
but the public does. Can every citizen take the time to go to
their courthouse, city hall or law enforcement agency and
ask to see every record and report? Of course not, that's
why we must have a free and unfettered press.
The Daily Commercial of Leesburg, Florida, had this to
say: "According to anm informal count of information avail-
able from the Florida First Amendment Foundation, Florida
lawmakers have since 2002 created or re-enacted a whop-




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
of Iraq." Pillar then wrote, "It has become clear that official
intelligence was not relied on in making e'.en 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 "superiors" 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?

ping 71 bills in some way restricting access to public infor-
mation. That makes the Sunshine State one of just two in
the nation, according to The Associated Press, to have passed
51 or more such laws since 2001.
"How about Senate Bill 1922, also enacted last year, which
blocks records regarding complaints to, and preliminary in-
vestigations by, municipal ethics commissions. That means
if your city commissioner has a half-dozen ethics complaints
filed against him in a two-month span, but all are dismissed
(as frequently occurs), you'll never know about it."
The Tallahassee Democrat said, "Maybe such things as
the extent of training given to boot-camp employees; or the
financial records of the company that won a state contract
to take over state personnel records and then farmed them
out to clerical workers in India and Barbados; or how a big
government grant is being spent. Messiness or inconvenience
or fear of embarrassment doesn't make the job of "knowing'
less important to the balancing act of democracy."
The Northwest Florida Daily News said, "For most gov-
ernment officials, keeping citizens in the dark is a hard habit
to break. Every legislative session, Florida lawmakers pro-
pose new exemptions designed to weaken the states open-
meetings and public-records laws. Every day, federal agen-
cies find new ways to keep material classified and vital in-
formation hidden."
SThe Panama City News Herald said, "You do have a right
to expect police and prosecutorial intervention if unaccom-
modating clerks and officials refuse access to public records
with no intimidating strings attached such as asking for a
reason and identification, with no repeated delaying tactics
unless they can cite chapter and verse a specific lawful ex-
emption. They must put that response in writing if you re-
quest. Otherwise, report them by name to the State
Attorney's Office or local police."
The Citrus County Chronicle said, "One of the things the
founders of this nation realized was that as good as the sys-
tem of checks and balances was with the three branches of
government, something else was needed in the equation.
That was the people's branch, so to speak; what we call
the free press. It has since, and very aptly, been labeled the
Fourth Estate of government.
The freedom of speech that is guaranteed in the First
Amendment of the federal Constitution is absolutely criti-
cal in a representative democracy such as ours, and it in-
cludes publishing information about government. The
founders knew information about what their government
was doing was vital to a free people remaining free."
Finally, Barbara Peterson, head of the First Amendment
Foundation which sponsored this open records audit, talked
about some of the bills proposed to take away your right to
Sknow.. She said, "We take a lot of bad bills and we try to ix
them, butt we nevei support an'exeinptiobi. Ever," she said.
More exemptions have been proposed this year and the
number goes up every day. Petersen said she and the staff
fight these bills every year, but "I keep thinking, 'This is the
year they only attack us with 50 bills,'" she said. "We should
be so lucky."
What you are wondering is whether or not Walton County
was audited. The answer is no, much to the relief of some
local officials. But it could be at any time and we need not
wait for Sunshine Sunday.
Now that would be an interesting report.

Editor:
Florida's counties commend Governor Jeb Bush for includ-
ing an additional $7.7 million in the state budget for Medic-
aid Non-Emergency Transportation. Also known as the
Transportation Disadvantaged (TD) Program, this worth-
while effort ensures that citizens who are unable to trans-
port themselves can get to their doctor's visits, or receive
dialysis treatment, or simply buy groceries.for the week.
The additional $7.7 million improves our communities by
increasing transportation services for persons who, because
of physical or mental disability, income status, or age, have
no means of transport. They are dependent on others to ac-
cess things many of us take for granted, such as health care,
employment, education, shopping, and even social activi-
ties. Citizens who would otherwise be homebound can lead
more fulfilling lives.
Clearly, the governor recognizes the importance of non-
emergency transportation and the need for this program in
communities across the state. In 2004, Florida's potential
TD 'population was 6.3 million residents. That number is
expected to grow to 8.25 million by 2015.
The TD program is also invaluable during hurricane
evacuation efforts. Special needs persons are the first to
evacuate and community transportation coordinators are
the ones to facilitate these evacuations. They also continue
to provide services after a disaster by providing trips to di-
alysis appointments and urgent care medical trips. They
also assist in the delivery of water and food.
The Florida Commission for the Transportation Disadvan-
taged is not only important to the citizens who use the ser-
vices, it is also a model program that has won state and
national awards for service and leadership. They have suc-
cessfully established a statewide coordinated system in
Florida, and saved the state millions of dollars in the pro-
cess.
The governor's proposed increase is a step in the right
direction. Yet, we must remember that providing transpor-
tation to those who need it most is an ongoing and ever in-
creasing necessity. Together with the state, county govern-
ments remain committed to finding ways to increase fund-
ing and resources for this program.
The Florida Association of Counties will continue to work
with the Florida Commission for the Transportation Disad-
vantaged, the governor's office and the Legislature to en-
sure the level of funding for this program is appropriate.
Florida's counties applaud the governor for his commitment
to improving the lives of the citizens in our great state.

Commissioner Welton Cadwell
President, Florida Association of Counties

Editor,
It's a shame and a disgrace that the insurance companies
and the drug companies can get together and charge differ-
ent prices for the same drugs. The cheaper drugs are being
fazed out. Only the higher priced drugs will be available.
Drugs should cost the same for everyone, except veterans
who should pay nothing, they gave their all for their coun-
try.
An interesting question...
If Hillary's health plan had been in effect, how long would
Bill have had to wait till he could have gotten his heart
surgery?

Editor,
I would like to thank the local fire department for their
quick response to the house fire on Orange Avenue on Sun-
day morning, March 5.
Their hard work and being on the scene all night saved
several homes in the area and gave all the residents a sense
of relief that so much help arrived on the scene.
Again, a big than-you to the Liberty, Argyle, Walton County
Fire Rescue and DeFuniak Springs Fire Department.

LETTER i THE EDITOR
Editor,
We would like to express our deepest gratitude to the
Chautauqua Rehabilitation and Nursing Home administra-
tion, business office, nursing staff, CNA's and physical
therapy staff for an excellent job.
Each day they were able to accomplish all my needs. They
did everything possible to make me feel comfortable and at
home.
Walton County and the surrounding communities are
blessed to have such a wonderful facility here for the resi-
dents.
The reason I know this, I had a recent accident and re-
quired physical therapy and I chose this facility due to my
knowledge of such a dedicated facility and staff and in or-
der to be closer to family and friends.
Thanks goes out to everyone who made my recovery pos-
sible, also to my family and friends for their visits, cards
and prayers.

Charles and Flora Morrow

EXERCISE

the 20th century saw three
pandemics (worldwide epi-
demics) of influenza.
The first occurred in 1918-
1919, and is considered to
have been "the most severe
pandemic in recorded history
from any cause."
The estimated death toll in
the United States alone was
675,000, roughly comparable
to the number of deaths in
the Civil War.


From Front

Two additional pandemics
have since occurred, one in
1957-1958, and in 1968-1969.
Campbell said that the
time between pandemics in
the 20th century has ranged
between 11 and 39 years.
Thus, 37 years have passed
since the most recent pan-
demic.
"It is believed that another
influenza pandemic can oc-
cur at any time and possibly


outside the typical influenza
season," said Campbell.
Facilitating the exercise
was Audrey S. Heffron,
deputy director of FSU's Cen-
ter for Disaster Risk Policy.
Heffron kept the meeting
moving, asking each group by
turns to articulate specific
concerns, and possible re-
sponses to them.
"Education, education, edu-
cation is the key," she said.
Heffron and Campbell said
that the purpose of the exer-
cise will be to develop a com-
prehensive pandemic influ-
enza response plan that
would serve the area.
Among the items of
concern raised at the meet-
ing were advance education,
law enforcement alternatives
if the regular police force is
incapacitated, triage of in-
fected persons, allocation of
food and medical supplies,
communications, disposal of
the dead, and training of
emergency service personnel
to fill in gaps from sick or
evacuated personnel.
One attendee, from an area
hospital, raised the possibil-
ity that some health care
workers might subordinate
their duties to take care of
their own families.
"It's a case of 'my family
comes first,'" he said.
At.the close of the exercise,
attendees were furnished
with a preparedness check-
list for their respective agen-
cies.
Campbell and Heffron will
compile responses and pro-
posals made at the meeting,
and produce a final results
report.

gambling and keeping a gam-
bling house.
An officer of the state's Di-
vision ofAlcoholic Beverages
and Tobacco posed as a gam-
bler in order to participate in
a game of chance, sponsored
by the Lightners. The game
was to be held at the Juniper
Lake Superette and Pub at
2254 Hwy 83, north of DeFu-
niak Springs.
The game consisted of a
four by eight foot board, on
whichl,100 spaces had been
drawn. Gamblers, including
the agent, purchased a space
for $1.9&.
On December 18 of last


year, every space had been
reserved, and the game was
held at the pub.
A live chicken was placed
on the board, "to roam at
will." The winner was deter-
mined by the space on which
the chicken defecated.
The incident report states
that the agent witnessed and
photographed the game, the
title of which is not printable.
The winner's purse was
$800, with the remaining
$300 going to the Lightners.
It is not reported what the
chicken received for its ef-
forts.

No charges to be brought against former OWC conductor


By BRUCE COLLIER
The State Attorney's office
has announced that no fur-
ther action will taken against
former Northwest Florida
Symphony Orchestra con-
ductor Demetrius Fuller.
Santa Rosa County State
Attorney's Office supervisor
Harmon Massey released a
statement on March 13.
Massey said that following
a file review and discussion
"in detail" with the Okaloosa
County Sheriff's investigator,
"he cannot foresee a success-
ful criminal prosecution up-
on the complaint of Okaloosa
Walton College [OWC]."
Fuller had been employed
part time by OWC. During
that time, he had formed a
corporation, the Northwest
Florida Symphony Associa-.
tion, Inc. (NWFSA). He re-
ceived contributions to that
association.-
According to Massey's
statement, "donors indicated
that they made contribu-
tions, understanding that
they were to Demetrius
Fuller and [NWFSA] and not
to Okaloosa Walton College."
In a statement released by
his press agent, Fuller com-
mented, "I am greatly re-
lieved with the positive out-
come of the investigation."


"Throughout this entire or-
deal, my interest and passion
was always for what I be-
lieved was the right thing to
do for the symphony and the
community it serves. I am
reassured that the truth has
prevailed."
OWC president Dr. James
R. Richburg issued a state-
menton behalf of the college.
"Demetrius Fuller was
fired for gross insubordina-
tion, dereliction of duties,
and mishandling of college
funds. The college)as part of
its internal fraud policies)


has a responsibility to refer sion by the State's Attorney
fraudulent misuse of funds to office has no bearing on Mr.
law enforcement.The deci- Fuller's termination."

Hinote was kept busy coordi- making and confirming ap-


pointments and sending and
receiving faxes and emails
vital to the appointments
with the Department of
Transportation, Department
of Interior and the members
of Congress.

Everyone attending the
conference had a chance to
hear Michael Chertoff, Secre-
tary U. S. Department of
Homeland Security. He told
the NACO members that
they have the most difficult
job in American public life
because they are the first line
of defense when disaster
strikes.
Other speakers included
Norman Mineta, Secretary of
the U. S. Department of
Transportation, Oregon
Senator Gorden Smith, and
James Lee Witt, former
FEMA director. Director of
Veterans Affairs James
Nicholson spoke to the del-
egates at an attendee lun-

a troupe of current and
former Congressional staff-

The Walton County Com-
mission was pleased to be
joined by other local officials

Planning for the city, Larry
Laird, recognized the traffic
concerns, but felt that growth
could be managed. As a way
to control this growth, he
mentioned preparing a
developer's agreement to
limit the number of families
and units put in the develop-
ment.
Jacobs said that his intent
was to put up quality homes
in a gated community. His vi-
sion, he said, is to fill a need
for housing in DeFuniak
Springs.
Councilman Don Harrison
said that this is only a start
to what's coming to DeFu-
niak. "People beg for afford-
able, attainable housing," he
said. "This, however, is only
a zoning change request."
The council decided in a 5-
0 vote to send this proposal
back to the planning depart-
ment. That department will
work with the developer to
attach stipulations limiting
the number of families and
units. This issue will come
again before the city council
at their April 24 meeting. A
draft will be made available
to residents at Laird's office
a week in advance.
Council members voted on
the purchase of three pickup
trucks for utility mainte-
nance and one automobile for
administration use. Cham-
pion Chevrolet in Tallahas-
see submitted the lowest bids
for all of the vehicles.
City Manager Kim
Presnell recommended doing
business locally instead.
Councilman McLeod said
that they could not justify not
taking the lowest bid. Coun-
cilman Harrison said that
there was no understanding
to give the advantage to lo-
cal businesses.
The council unanimously
voted to buy the vehicles
from Champion Chevrolet.
Aero FX requested and was
granted a six month time ex-
tension in the hiring of 13 ad-
ditional people. They also re-
quested and were granted
permission to use one of the

will be reevaluated in six
months.
The council set a public
hearing date of April 24 for a
petition made by C&S Signs
to install four additional wall
signs at the new
Whataburger.
A request by North Ameri-
can Family Institute to renew-
their fire agreement with the
City of DeFuniak Springs for
the upcoming year was ap-
proved.
The council appointed Pat
Huffman to the College Av-
enue Complex Committee to
fill a spot vacated by Ernest
Underwood.
Appointment of a member
to the "U.S. Highway 331 Ad-
vocacy Committee" was con-
tinued to the next meeting.
Several self-contained
breathing apparatus items
that have become obsolete to
the city will be donated. to
Sunbelt Fire to avoid a dis-
posal fee. A computer will be
donated to ARC or Oakdale
Apartments. Bids will be
taken on a Martin Yale
Burster that has become ob-
solete to the city.
In concluding remarks,
Mayor Pro-Tempore James
Huffman spoke about his trip
to Washington D.C. as a rep-
resentative of DeFuniak
Springs. There he met with
congressmen about a High-
way 331 hurricane evacua-
tion project. He advises lob-
bying for the city and is con-
cerned about preparing for a
methamphetamine epidemic
in the area.
Although a variety of sub-
jects were discussed at
Monday's city council meet-
ing, the overwhelming feeling
was one of concern for resi-
dents of DeFuniak. With the
approval of adding to the po-
lice patrol of the city and the
attempt to soothe concerns of
residents of Shoemaker
Drive among other things, it
seems the voice of the people
of the city was not only heard,
but listened to.

Deadline approaches for property tax bills

tor Rhonda Skipper reminds

owners that the deadline to


Editor,
Congress has finally began to act like an independent
branch of the federal government. After years, it has stopped
rubber-stamping administration moves. The president, who
persists in calling the U.S. "America", has all but ignored
Congress, practically since he has been in office.
Presidents have assumed much too much power. One of
them is to make war. Not since WWII has Congress declared
war. Presidents of both parties have opened wars through
one ruse or another. Being Commander-in-Chief does not
bestow the power to initiate a war.
I have come to the conclusion that Congress is a lazy, don't-
rock-the-boat bunch, who has stood aside and let much of
their perogative be usurped. The members were elected to
do a job, most do not.
The federal government, in the last several years, has
routinely ignored the constitution if it happens to be in the
way of what the government intends to do. Since Congress
seems to have plenty of time on its hands, it needs to secure
a copy for every member of the House and Senate. I am
confident most have never studied it.
If the government intends to continue ignoring the Con-
stitution, it should do away with the hypocrisy, and declare
it scrapped.

"We/l, We're Moving On Up..."
The catchy theme song from television's The Jeffersons provided the perfect backdrop for the DeFuniak Springs Herald's
long-awaited moving day. For more than 60 years, the Herald has operated out of it's storefront at 667 Baldwin Avenue, but
S* as of this week, the Herald has moved on up to it's new offices a block away, near the corner of Baldwin Avenue and 7th
Street.
Though it's not a great distance as the crow flies, the new address is light years away from the old offices. The office space
is newly renovated and remodeled and features about three times the space (and that's not counting the upstairs). The Herald
staff is enjoying larger private offices, new computers, office furniture and equipment and a new phone system. Even our e-
mail address has changed.
The Herald has operated in Walton County since 1888. It was Herald editor Larkin Cleveland who dubbed the newspaper
"The Temple of Truth," a moniker we still wear proudly. The first newspaper in Walton County was The Signal, owned by.
SW.B. Saunders and started in 1884. After his death, his widow continued to operate the paper, assisted by Mrs. Clara Dryer,
:. passing later into the hands of Dr. Henry, who sold it to a stock company. Eventually, Cleveland bought it, renamed it the
: I : DeFuniak Herald.
The next newspaper to debut in Walton County was The Critic followed by The Rambler, both of which were short-lived.
P_**-. In 1892, Royal W. Storrs arrived and opened The Breeze, which was later managed by J.H. Allen and then Royal's brother,
S. H.C. Storrs. For decades, the Herald and the Breeze were two very separate newspapers. Later, the Breeze was bought by the

What Christ Means To All

By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC
Did you know that our country was and is founded on
the Judeo/Christian concepts of life? We are so bombarded
by the media, ACLU and other voices that have the plat-
form, that we forget that God has a voice, and it is not
silent, but directional. The only voice that God uses is
yours, and mine. If the voice of the Christian is silent,
Christ is silent. The problem we have in America is that
we have thought that an occasional voice is all that God is
requiring us to have.
However, I ask you-where would you be as a Chris-
tian if someone did not speak Christ's love to you? Where
would you andI be if someone had not prayed for us? Would
there be a nursing home, orphanage, or any other chari-
table organization without the influence of Christians?
How shall I feel at the judgment if my life is passed in full
review, and souls that I could have spoken to began to
accuse\me? What excuse could I possibly offer for my cow-
ardice or pride? Christians mean business and are not
wimps? What and who are you? Sunday morning 10 am.;
WSZEP 7:05-7:30 Sunday a.m.
Stop by here on your way to eternity!

Florida. Eleven years later
he culminated his stay with
them as their parts manager
and joined The Boeing Com-
pany of Seattle, WA as a
buyer at Eglin AFB, FL on
the Bomarc Missile Program.
When the Air Force advised
Boeing that the development
of the missile had reached an
acceptable level of the "state

him to Cape Canaveral, FL
as their contract manager on
the Minuteman Missile pro-

had been awarded the con-
tract for the Space Shuttle

months later. He was then
transferred back to his home

While there he was assigned
as their contracts manager.
Most importantly, he met
the lovely Judy Carole
Havlena, in Aug. 1982, in
Barstow, CA. She was presi-
dent of two business corpora-
tions. She joined Jenkins as
an employee with Boeing
Services International Inc.
and became "Boeing's man in
California." They were later
married in Florida, Aug. 31,

transferred to Kennedy

from the Boeing Company 1
Oct. 1985.
Approximately Nov. 15,

SPORTS




Sports media members give awards


Sports media members
from the DeFuniak Herald,
WWEO FM 103.9, TV-24, and
WDSP AM-1280 have se-
lected their 2005-06 awards
in local girls basketball. The
Area 5 is composed of all four
Walton County schools (Pax-
ton, Walton, Freeport, and
South Walton) plus Ponce de
Leon.
Senior Ashlee Stephens
from South Walton High
School took top honors in the
voting this season, winning
the Player of the Year title as
well as the Most Valuable
Player to her teoi designa-
tion. Stephens averaged 20.0
points per game as she scored
580 points in 29 contests this
season. Stephens scored over
1,000 points in her two year
career at South Walton and
led the Seahawks to the
county championship as well


as the District 1, Class 3A dis-
trict championship. South
Walton also won the first
playoff game in their history
when they defeated Holmes
County 53-43 in the opening
round of the Class 3A play-
offs in the first home playoff
game in school history in any
sport. Stephens received four
of five first place votes to earn
the Player of the Year award
and edged Mary Howes of
Ponce de Leon for the Team
MVP award. Stephens is ex-
pected to sign with Okaloosa-
Walton College and continue
her playing career represent-
ing the area at the junior col-
lege level for the next two sea-
sons.
Sophomore Nicole Dykes
made the first team with an
11.9 points per game scoring:
average as well as solid out-
side scoring, heady rebound-
ing, and a motor that doesn't


DID YOU KNOW?
5 Sports Facts

1. No #5-seed in the NCAA tournament has
ever won the men's basketball championship.

2. Former Quincy Shanks quarterback Dex-
ter Jackson, who played against Walton, was
the MVP of Super Bowl 37 for Tampa Bay.

3. Arizona will make their 22nd consecutive
appearance in the NCAA men's basketball tour-
ney this week, the longest current active streak
of any team.

4. Kentucky will appear in the men's NCAA
basketball tournament for the 47th time, the
most appearances by any one school.

,;.5. Air Force, possibly the last team chosen
for the men's basketball tournament, has never
won a game in'the tourney, going 0-3 in three
previous appearances.


quit in harassing opponents
on defense. Junior forward
Allex McCormick battled
taller centers all season while
leading Paxton in scoring
with 9.6 points per game.
McCormick battled foul prob-
lems at times, but solidified
the middle as she often faced
double-teaming and got bat-
tered underneath in helping
her team's rebounding ef-
forts. Junior Lacey Griffin
did it all for PDL this season
as she penetrated, dished,
and scored her way to an 11.4
points per game average.
Griffin ran into an offensive
foul or two during the season,
but fearlessly plunged into
the lane when the Pirates
needed a big play, often get-
ting to the free throw line as
a result. When Griffin didn't
connect from the floor, 6-foot
sophomore center Mary
Howes was often around to
grab the rebound and put it


kW C~


back in for a basket. Howes
was second to Stephens in
scoring, averaging 14.8 points
per game, and in free throw
attempts on the season.
Howes rebounding was a big
boost to Tim Alford's club and
instrumental in leading PDL
back to the Final 4 in Class 2A.
South Walton's Kevin Craig
garnered Coach of the Year
honors as he led the Seahawks
to their first-ever district title
and playoff berth. Craig took
a squad that was 0-24 two
years ago and went 12-14 in
his first season at the school.
This season the Seahawks fin-
ished 24-6 and went a perfect
8-0 against Paxton, Walton,
and Freeport. South Walton's
most impressive victory came
in the district tournament
when the Seahawks defeated
Pensacola Catholic on their
home floor for the district
championship with a 56-50
win to unseat the defending


champion.
Daydra Brown grabbed the
Sixth Woman Award as the top
player coming off the bench
during the 2005-06 season.
Brown had 10 points in the
state semifinal against North
Florida Christian and spelled
Mary Howes admirably
throughout the season.
Freshman Betsy Stevenson
captured the Newcomer of the
Year Award as the Walton stu-
dent averaged 9.4 points per


game in helping a young
Braves squad to eight wins.
Only three of the ten play-
ers on the first and second
team are seniors. Stephens,
along with Catherine Tinsley
of Ponce de Leon and Jessica
Fink of Paxton, are veteran
players that will be missed
next season, however, the area
should be treated to another
strong year of basketball in
2006-07 with so many talented
players returning next year.

Sports News & Notes plans


By Patrick Casey
The OWC Raiders swept
North Florida in their first
Panhandle Conference base-
ball series of the season to
start the conference slate 3-
0. OWC(24-5) hosts Gulf
Coast on Friday at 5 p.m.
The FSU baseball team
swept Maryland over the
weekend to start their ACC
record off at 3-0. FSU(18-1)
has won 26 straight games at
home, but will travel to Vir-
ginia Tech for their first ACC
series with the Hokies this
weekend. Florida swept
three games from Harvard
over the weekend to improve
to 14-6. The Gators will open
SEC play this weekend when
they host Arkansas in a 3-
game series.
The Ponce de Leon base-
ball team is off to a 7-0 start
after a 9-1 win over Rocky
Bayou on Monday. PDL is
using strong defense and
pitching to get off to a hot
start and has not been hurt
by a schedule loaded with
home games in the early part
of the season. PDL will face
Vernon in a pair of district
games slated for April 4 and
11 to decide district su-
premacy. Vernon is off to a 9-
2 start and has similar char-
acteristics to PDL, meaning
the two head-to-head games
should be close battles that
could result in a third and fi-
nal meeting in the District 2,
Class 2A championship
game. Vernon has a home
field advantage in the district
tournament as they will host
the 4-team event in late April.
The OWC softball team
has a 21-6 record as the Raid-
ers get set to start conference
play. OWC has struggled in
the conference over the last
several seasons but seems to
have. a stronger offense this
season, a big plus when four
or five runs is often enough
to win a conference game.


FSU officials and fans are
upset about being snubbed by
the NCAA men's basketball
selection committee, but their
non-conference strength of
schedule was definitely an
issue. Also, FSU won the
mascot battle with the NCAA
last summer that would have
banned the use of the Semi-
noles -name at the NCAA
tournament and qualified for
a BCS bowl game (the Orange
Bowl) with a less than stel-
lar record. If you want to read
conspiracy theory, perhaps
the NCAA decided it was time
for FSU to lose a close one by
not getting a bid. FSU did get
into the 1998 men's tourney
with a less than stellar
record, as well. This year's
team may have paid for that
team's unexpected berth.

J.J. Redick named

ACC Player of the Year


By CHUCK HINSON
Despite the upset the and
his team suffered against
FSU two weeks ago and a
season that had more ups
and downs, Duke Blue Dev-
ils J.J. Redick grabbed the
spotlight and the attention of
the ACC. He was awarded-
the trophy for ACC Player of
the Year.
Redick, who has broken
numreous school records,
shocked the ACC and entire
college basketball with his


on-court skills as he as-
sisted Duke with another
championship. The senior
has also been the
conference's top player.
He was named the Associ-
ated Press Association's
Player of the Year for the sec-
ond straight year. This sea-
son also saw Redick become
the all-time leading scorer for
the ACC
Redick is only the tenth
person to win the
association's award, two
times in a row.

County agrees



to aid seawall



owners


By DOTTY NIST
Walton County is "testing
the waters" for interest in 'a
county-facilitated habitat
protection agreement aimed
at addressing issues related
to the alleged "taking" of fed-
erally protected endangered
species habitat.
Under the proposal, Wal-
ton County would conduct
the application procedure for
the agreement, with indi-
vidual property owners who
constructed temporary post-
Hurricane Dennis beach
armoring serving as appli-
cants. According to Gary
Demers of the Walton County
Building Department, 241
county property owners ap-
plied for temporary armoring
structures such as sea walls
and geotubes.
On Monday, Walton
County Attorney David
Hallman addressed a stand-
ing-room-only gathering at
the South Walton Court-
house Annex regarding the
proposal.
Hallman noted that after
the Walton County Board of
County Commissioners'
(BCC) July 2005 decision to
approve and permit tempo-
rary armoring on the beach
as an emergency measure,
the county had encountered
some "threatening letters
and press" about the need for
an incidental take permit or
permits to mitigate for im-
pacts on endangered species
habitat on the beach.
In Jan. 2006, Janet Mizzi,
deputy field supervisor for
the USDA Fish and Wildlife
Service, had written to the
BCC to state that any of the
temporary armoring permits
issued by Walton County be-
tween the passage of Hurri-
cane Dennis in July through
Oct. 27, 2005 (the emergency
order period) could poten-
tially result in incidental
take of federally protected
species, including sea turtles,
beach mice, and piping plo-
vers.
"The County and the indi-
vidual property owners are
subject to law enforcement
prosecution under the En-
dangered Species Act if take
of a federally protected spe-
cies is documented from the
armoring while not covered
under an incidental take per-
mit," Mizzi wrote.
Mizzi recommended that
Walton County, as an entity,
apply for an incidental take
permit to mitigate its action
in permitting the coastal
armoring. If that were to hap-
pen, Mizzi stated, Fish and
Wildlife "would not antici-
pate seeking prosecution" in
connection with incidental
take issues.
The plan the county is pro-
posing calls for any costs as-
sociated with a mitigation
agreement, a habitat conser-
vation plan, to be borne by
the property owners who con-
structed seawalls to protect
their beachfront structures
from further post-Hurricane
Dennis erosion damage.


LIFEGUARD TRAINING has consisted of half a day in class and half a day of physical
drills on the beach. See additional photos page 6C.




Lifeguard program



gets its feet wet


By DOTTY NIST
Walton County's first lifeguardprogram
got started this week.
After a decision last month to task the
South Walton Fire District (SWFD) with
implementation of the pilot program, a score
of lifeguards has been hired and a rigorous
training program conducted.
The county is holding to its goals of kick-
ing off lifeguard services in time for the 2006
beach season, with those services being pro-
vided beginning on Maach 12. Lifeguards are
being posted from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at six Wal-
ton County regional beach accesses: Inlet
Beach, Santa Clara, Gl4fview Heights, Ed
Walline, Dune Allen, and Miramar Beach.
The pilot program is.being paid for by tour-
ist bed tax funds through the South Walton
Tourist Development Council.


Sean Hughes, South Walton Fire District
deputy chief, was enthusiastic about the team
of lifeguards that had been hired to inaugu-
rate the services. Hughes said he had heard
not one complaint from the men and women
despite the very chilly water at Ed Walline
Park during the training exercises.
They are required to meet all United
States Surf Life Saving Association (USLA)
requirements, including a timed 500 meter
swim, first aid and CPR certification, and 40
hours of open water lifesaving training, to
be inducted into the program.
Gary Wise, a local resident, USLA mem-
ber, and accomplished lifeguard, is oversee-
ing the program for the SWFD.
Education and prevention as well as emer-
gency response will be emphasized as impor-
tant features of the program.


Selling Seaside by




the Seashore


By LEAH STRATMANN
Unless it's a small town in
Georgia and Kim Basinger
wants to buy it, towns are not
generally for sale, yet rumors
about the sale of the "town"
of Seaside swirled around
south Walton County like a
windstorm last week.
"That's a rumor I want to
squash right now," said Rick
Severance, CEO of Seaside.
"Intrawest is only purchas-
ing the operations of the cot-
tage rental space. We are re-
taining the development
owned assets of Seaside," he
said.
Severance indicated the
reason for the sale was the
desire of Daryl and Robert
Davis, the founders of Sea-
side, to focus on the comple-
tion of the town center, which
Severance estimates will
take five years to finish. "We
are still here and we are still


very vibrant," Severance de-
clared.
"There are approximately
250 rentals managed and
operated by the Seaside Cot-
tage Rental Agency," Sever-
ance noted. "Seaside Com-
munity Development Corpo-
ration will continue to run
the retail division in down-
town."
"Being invited to the table
is a natural fit for Intrawest,
which is striving to grow and
diversify its business by ac-
quiring new assets that fit
the Intrawest model," said
Mike Stange, vice president,
southeast region of' rawest
Corporation. "Seaiue is a
perfect match for Intrawest.
It has the same mix of stake-
holders such as employees,
homeowners, commercial
merchants, visitors, business
travelers and local custom-
ers. Like Seaside, Intrawest


believes in creating a com-
plete community experience.
Like Seaside, Intrawest be-
lieves in the value of preserv-
ing a community's sense of
place. But beyond philosophy,
Intrawest has solid pro-
cesses, resources and experi-
ence at the ready for a suc-
cessful rental management
program. We believe our
business approach will pro-
vide Seaside even more suc-
cess and stability."
According to a press re-
lease issued by Intrawest's
the sale will be completed on
March 17, 2006. Although
neither Severance nor
Intrawest would disclose the
selling price of the rental
piece of the business, he did
say, "We are very fortunate to
be partnered with Intrawest.
We believe they will enhance
see SEASIDE 6C


The cost for the conserva-
tion plan is estimated conser-
vatively at $250,000, a cost
that would be divided on a
"fair-share" basis among
property owners who had
constructed armoring struc-
tures and who voluntarily
agreed to participate.
The agreement, which is
yet to be developed, could in-
clude such elements as beach
or dune restoration, a sea
turtle lighting ordinance, a
feral cat control program, or
the setting aside of
beachfront property for con-
servation. It would require
the approval of the county,
Fish and Wildlife, the state
Department of Environmen-
tal Protection, and the
Florida Wildlife Commission.
Hallman said that a grant
is available that may pay
some or all of the cost associ-
ated with the conservation
agreement. Tlh.dieadline for
the grant application is
March 20, so the county is
working quickly to gauge in-
terest and meet that dead-
line if there is sufficient re-
sponse..
Atteidees interested in
participating were asked to
sigrr sheet of paper. While
signing up is not binding at
this point, Hallman urged
property owners to get in-
volved early, since any costs
could be greater for those
getting involved at a later
date. Those failing to partici-
pate could be faced with set-
ting up their own habitat
conservation agreement with
the agencies for their prop-


erty, he noted,
The property owners who
constructed temporary
armoring under the county
emergency permits were re-
quired to either remove their
armoring within 60 days of
completion or apply for a
state permit to leave the
structure in place perma-
nently. Many of the attend-
ees had submitted state ap-
plications.
In response to a question,
Hallman clarified that the
purpose of the county's habi-
tat conservation agreement
proposal is to address the
impacts of the temporary
armoring as opposed to that
of structures being left in
place on a permanent basis.
The agreement should have
no affect on the applications
under review by the state, he
commented.
"Does this protect us from
prosecution?" beachfront
property owner Linda
Hildreth asked regarding the
proposed agreement.

Hallman did not guaran-
tee that it would do so. He
recommended that anyone
who had constructed
armoring and who had not
.consulted with a attorney
regarding liability in connec-
tion with endangered species
protection should do so as
soon as possible.
He told the gathering that
there-would be additional
meetings on the subject of
the agreement in the event
of sufficient interest by prop-
erty owners.


DAVID HALLMAN, Walton County attorney, speaks with
attendees at the March 13 meeting on a possible incidental
take mitigation agreement in connection with temporary
coastal armoring in Walton County.

Entertainment


New office, new
computer, new op-
portunities. It is like
I have been thrust
into the 21st Cen-
tury and everyone
else is just along for
the laughs.

Since being with the De-
Funiak Herald/Beach Breeze
Newspaper since 1997, I
have been fortunate to see
and do things that only some-
one with a press pass and
credentials is able to do. Go
anywhere-and do anything in
the name of journalism.
Since I made my way from
Atlanta to the Big "D", I have
seen DeFuniak Springs
double in size, the south end
of the county explode in
growth and development,
and have been witness to
what it means to vacation in
paradise.
I'have covered, produced,
promoted and managed con-
certs, art festivals, trade
shows, automobile and in-
dustry events, for the news-
paper as well as my business.
Hilltop Productions. All of
these stories, PSAs, reviews,
critiques and listings, were
typed and written on a com-
puter system that dates back
to the age of punk rock and
mullet haircuts (1984).
Like everything else in our
new office, they (the entire


staff) felt that with our new
technology, our new polished
look, and our new up-to-date
image, I had to do the same.
In the office, my dinosaur,
I mean my computer, was the
blunt of every joke. It was no
bigger than a cigar box, you
had to use a magnifying glass
to see the screen and it had
no means of memory, back-
up, was not Internet
comparable and did not read
discs.
It had seen better days, but
it did exactly what I needed
for it to do type.
So, I was pulled into the
21st century kicking and
screaming and refusing to
learn how the new system
works. I even gave the excuse
that those loyal readers that
have been reading my ar-
ticles and section for nearly
a decade, would be lost if they
could not read the type from
my old computer.
They did not want a
change.Okay, I did not want
a change and Ijust used the
reader as a pawn.
In all honesty, I am a
people person and not a typ-
ing person. If I could read
you my stories on the air like
I did when in television and
on radio, there would be no
problem.
But, since I do work for
print media, things had to be
different. That means that I
had to become educated in
new-age technology and
learn how to use this com-
puter I am typing on right

County to prepare conservation grant application


By DOTTY NIST
In a split vote on March 14,
the Walton County Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) decided to have staff
prepare a grant application
to fund an endangered spe-
cies conservation plan for
county beaches impacted by
coastal armoring.
Property owners who con-
structed seawalls and other
coastal armoring in the wake
of Hurricane Dennis are to
serve as the applicants. Par-

the operations and take it to
the next level."
Severance noted the rental
side of Seaside's business
employs about 150 people full
time, most of whom he ex-
pects to be retained by
Intrawest. He declared the
rental market at Seaside to
"'.;,abl and very strong" de-


ticipation will be voluntary.
Grant funding, which is un-
derstood to be likely, is ex-
pected to pay for at least part,
perhaps all of the plan.
The conservation plan will
be aimed at mitigation of
negative impacts on native
endangered species habitat
as alleged by the USDA Fish
and Wildlife Service and
other organizations. (See re-
lated story regarding habitat
protection agreement.)
Just 20 out of approxi-


mately 220 citizens attend-
ing a meeting the previous
night regarding the prospect
of the habitat protection plan
expressed interest in partici-
pating. A number have ob-
jected to the property owners
rather than the county serv-
ing as grant applicant and
possibly funding the plan, at
least in part. The commis-
sioners nevertheless elected
to move forward with the
application.

Intrawest Corporation has
interests in 10 resorts at
North America's mountain
destinations, including Whis-

deadline was previously
thought to be March 20, but
the commissioners were told
on March 14 that it had been
extended to April 1. Still,
time was said to be of the es-
sence, with some intervening
steps, including state review
of the federal grant applica-
tion, required to be accom-
plished prior to April 1, ac-
cording to David Hallman,
county attorney.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows was against


proceeding, stating that the
commissioners need all the
facts prior to a decision.
"It's premature," she ob-
jected.

District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones was in sympathy
with that sentiment but did
not want the funding to be
lost because of deadline. He
noted that the option exists
to turn down the grant at a

later date.
Jones moved to have staff
begin preparing the grant
application and District 2
Commissioner Ken Pridgen
seconded. The motion was
approved, with County Com-
mission Chair Scott Brannon
voting in support. Meadows
voted against the motion and
District 4 Commissioner Ro
Cuchens abstained due to
business affiliations.


owners that the deadline to
pay current year property
taxes is close of business
March 31.
Real estate taxes become
delinquent on April 1. A
three percent mandatory in-
terest is added to the amount
due at that time. If the taxes
remain unpaid, the delin-
quent property will be adver-
tised once a week for three
consecutive weeks prior to
the Tax Certificate Sale and
the advertising fee will be
added to the tax bill.
Reminder notices, in the
form of a new bill, will be
mailed out on March 15,
2006. Those who pay their
taxes between, March 1-15
will still receive the notice,
and may disregard it if they
have proof of prior payment.
Reminder notices will in-
clude any other delinquent
taxes that are owed on the
parcel.
In order to assist our cus-
tomers in avoiding late pen-
alties the tax
collector's offices will remain
open and additional hour on
March 31. Payment options
are clearly detailed on each
tax bill, and you can obtain
more information on the tax
collector's website at
www.waltontaxcollector.com.

Big Redfish Lake in danger again


By LEAH STRATMANN

Community vigilance of the
fragile and environmentally
sensitive coastal dune lakes
is alive and well in Blue
Mountain Beach. On March
7, Richard Fowlkes, presi-
dent of the Blue Mountain
Beach 'Community Associa-
tion sent an email and pho-
tos to Board of County Com-
missioners Meadows, Jones
Pridgen and Brannon with
the following information:
"Attached are two photos
taken March 4 of the asphalt
that the county put on the
bank south of 30-A above Big
Redfish Lake after repairing
a hole in the area. Clearly
this asphalt threatens the
lake and may end up in the
lake if it is not removed. For
all we know some may have
already migrated into this
rare coastal dune lake.
"This is not unlike when
the county used dark sand to
fill along the side of Blue
Mountain Road in violation
of the white sand protection
ordinance. Of course this vio-
lation is much more egre-
gious but it continues to dem-
onstrate that the county
seems unwilling or unable to
respect our community. It
would appear county leader-
ship has not worked to see
the employees are aware of
county rules and regulations
in the areas that they work.
Enforcement is left to com-
plaining citizens.
"It is not enough that we
must watchdog developers to
ensure they follow the rules;


we also must oversee the
county as well. What can be
done to correct the current
situation and to see that
abuses of our regulations by
county employees do not oc-
cur in the future?"
The commissioners took
swift action and by March 10
the asphalt could no longer
be seen, but it is unclear
whether or not the asphalt
was removed. What is visible
are large rocks known as
riprap and a lot of dark:dirt,
which Fowlkes says violates
the white sand ordinance.
"A sense of urgency is no ex-
cuse for doing something
wrong. There is plenty of evi-
dence in the county as to
where that'gets the county
when they rush ahead with-
out regard to rules and regu-
lations. I would bet it would
have taken no longer to do
the repair correctly than it
took to do it wrong. I believe
this is more about a lack of
communication, education
and oversight or good man-
agement. This is not the first
time the county has failed to
follow its own rules in this
area. They don't seem to
learn or they don't seem to
care and they do no better job
educating their own than
they do educating contrac-
tors. It does not seem to be a
priority.
John Johnson, the director
of Public Works said he was
aware of the original problem
of the asphalt and said, :"I
believe it {the asphalt) was
removed." Commenting on
why public work crews fix

one problem and create an-
other, he said, "District crews
are put in a hard situation
and often do it fast to stabi-
lize a road without comply-
ing to environmental stan-
dards."
Johnson said there would
a county Public Works meet-
ing on March 16 to inform all
county public works employ-
ees about what they can and
cannot do to solve problems
such as potholes. He also
said, "District foreman are
well aware of what can and
can't be done."
Attempts were made to
contact the Walton County
Public Works director to de-
termine the paper trail from
the original complaint
brought to the attention of
county commissioners to the
second complaint about the
non- compliance of the work,
but no one could be reached
for comment.


THIS PHOTOGRAPH, taken by Richard Fowlkes on March 7 shows where asphalt was
used to repair a hole in the road on County Highhway 30A, adjacent to Big Redfish Lake.


Beach

project

continues

at Four Mile

Village


The western Walton
County/Destin beach restora-
tion project is proceeding
through Four Mile Village
this week, Brad Pickel re-
ported.
Pickel, beach management
director for the South Walton
Tourist Development Coun-
cil, said some delay with the
large-scale beach nourish-
ment project was experi-
enced last week due to large
waves. The waves forced the
project to be shut down be-
ginning on Thursday until
the gulf became calmer on
Saturday, he reported.
Pickel said 3,600 feet of
beach, or 9.7 percent of the
project, has now been com-
pleted.
He anticipates that the res-
toration of the Four Mile Vil-
lage beachfront will be com-
pleted by the end of the week.
This will put the project at its
easternmost point next to
Topsail Hill State Preserve.
Pickel expects restoration
work move to the Sandestin
area near Southwinds Con-
dominiums and be underway
at that location by the week-
end. From that point, plans
are for the restoration project
to progress westward.
Construction is expected to
continue through the Sand-
estin area and Gulf Pines
during the week of March 20,
approaching Hidden Dunes.
Continually updated infor-
mation on the restoration is
available on the project web
site www.protectwalton
beaches.com.
