DeFuniak


Springs a city


on the grow


By LEIGH STRICKLAND
DeFuniak Springs is grow-
ing. One has only to drive
through town to see new de-
velopments springing up ev-
erywhere. The topic is one
that incites much specula-
tion and, at times, contro-
versy.
This growth, however, is
inevitable. Larry Laird, di-
rector of the Building and
Planning Department for the
city of DeFuniak Springs,
says, "We're not going to stop
the growth. It's going to hap-
pen. All we can do is manage
it."
Many are left wondering,
then, which of the rumors are
true and what developments
they can expect to see in the
city in coming months.
Though construction has
not yet begun on the project,
DeFuniak Springs will soon
have a Walgreens. This is to
be located, Laird says, at the
intersection of Bob Sikes
Road and U.S. 331.
Additional traffic signals
and turn lanes will be put
into place, and Corbett Drive
will be relocated to connect
to Bob Sikes Road.
This aspect of the develop-
ment will benefit the city, as
well, in that it Will provide a
connecting point to another
part of the city, allowing for
future growth and helping to
facilitate increased traffic.
Already under const ruc-
tion is DeFuniak Retail, a
strip mall located next to
Wal-Mart, which will include
Beef O'Brady's and room for
about six other businesses.
Also already under con-
struction, is a Whataburger
restaurant, which is being
put into the old Hardee's
building.
Regarding talk of Lowe's
coming into DeFuniak, Laird
says, "The city has not been
contacted by Lowe's at this
time. Typically they'll come


and ask us first."
Consultants and develop-
ers constantly scout locations
for different companies. They
look at population, do traffic
counts, and get the pulse of
what's going on in the com-
munity. They then try to an-
ticipate growth.
"There are people out there
putting feelers out continu-
ously," Laird says. "They may
purchase property, knowing
that somewhere in the future
they're going to do this."
As a result of this uncer-
tainty, the time frame on
these various projects is dif-
ficult to determine. Permits
must be obtained. Construc-
tion must not be detrimental
to the environment. Things
like wetlands, traffic flow,
and waste water must all be
considered.
It isn't the city or the
county that holds things up,
says Laird. Their responsibil-
ity is just to make sure
everything's done properly.
Walgreens, for example,
has been working with the
city for nine months to a year.
Construction is not ex-
pected to take long, but it all
depends on developers and
contractors.
To help accommodate an
increase in the population in
the area, several residential
developments are also in the
works.
One of these is a 201-home
subdivision that will soon
begin construction south of
the high school. Single-fam-
ily dwellings on good sized
lots will be built there as well
as a five-foot wide path that
will connect into the Wee
Care Park on Walton Road.
The only entrance and exit
for this subdivision will be on
Walton Road.
Many developments are
still in planning stages and

By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County School:
Board held their second regu-
lar meeting for the month on,
Monday, March 20 at the:
Tivoli Administrative Com-,
plex in DeFuniak Springs.
Wayne Miller, supervisor:
of Administration and Op-:
erations, opened bids for;
three projects the district;
needs work for in the near'
future: building a new, gym-
nasium at Paxton High
School, building recreation
fields at Emerald Coast
Middle School, and the re-
roofing of Bay Elementary
School.
Two firms bid on the re-
roofing project and the Pax-
ton gym project while Lord
and Son Construction, Inc.,
was the lone bidder for the
construction of the Emerald'
Coast school recreation
fields. The bid deadlines had
been extended several weeks
in hope that more bids would
be received for the projects.
The bids on the projects
themselves raised the eye-
brows of several school board
members as well as the au-
diente in attendance.
Lord and Son submitted a
bid to build the recreation
fields at Emerald Coast
Middle School for $1,431,500
that included an underdrain
system that was an addition
alternate. The bid was
nearly $500,000 more than
expected.
The re-roofing project at
Bay Elementary School was
bid on by Lord and Son as
well as Bel Mac Roofing. Bel
Mac submitted a bid with
two addition alternates for
$261,920 with Lord and Son
coming in at $298,600.
The bids for the proposed
Paxton gymnasium came
from Lord and Son and
Speegle Construction. Lord
and Son offered a bid with
four addition alternates for
$4,915,900 while Speegle,
submitted $4,545,000. Those-
figures surprised board
members as the project was
projected at $3.6-3.8 million.
The amount works out to
nearly $200 per square foot,
up from approximately $125

Freeport agenda


By BEN GRAFTON
The major emphasis of the
Freeport City Council meet-
ing of March 14 addressed
those issues that will become
a part of the large scale
amendment to the compre-
hensive plan that is being
prepared by the city. The first
readings of a group of ordi-
nances covering subjects to
be incorporated into the
amendment were presented,
by City Planner Latilda
Henninger. These ordinances
include: A medium density
residential zoning definition
which will permit construc-
tion of four to eight residen-
tial units per acre.


A change to a "transi-
tioning urban" traffic classi-
fication which will provide
for design of major arteries
to control urban traffic flow
at reasonable speed limits.
A revision of zoning classifi-
cations in the central city,
particularly along SR- 20, to
provide urban housing den-
sities up to eight units per
acre. Rezoning of property in
the vicinity of Blueberry
Road to provide for city facili-
ties and for mixed use zon-
ing which will include some
commercial and some me-
dium density residential
property.

Paxton council


mulls impact fees,


status of ball park


By BRUCE COLLIER
The Paxton Town Council
met on March 14 to consider,
among other things, the as-
sessment of impact fees to
ease the "strain on infra-
structure" brought by Walton
County's burgeoning devel-
opment.
Paxton's town attorney,
Allan Ramey, told the coun-
cil that Walton County is
growing rapidly, and pre-
sented a chart tracking pro-
jected growth of the water
and sewer customer base
through 2011.
The chart employed a three
percent annual rate increase,


and an annual increase of 50
new customers.
Assessing developers an
impact fee would help defray
any shortfalls between the
cost of service and revenue
from fees, said Ramey, who
urged immediate action.
"You're going to have to
make up your mind where
that money's goin o come
from," he said.
"[Developers] expect to
have to pay those fees."
Several attendees gave ex-
amples of impact fees
charged by other communi-
ties. According to them,
Crestview assesses $1,500

and Florala $900 in impact
fees.
Ramey recommended as-
sessing at least $600 in im-
pact fees for sewer and wa-
ter service combined. "I
wouldn't go less than $600."
Council member Tommy
Mathis commented that if
impact fees were not as-
sessed, existing customers
could face increased rates.


Ramey said that the im-
pact fees could be kept in
separate accounts, restrict-
ing their use to enumerated
purposes, such as system
upgrades.
Ramey recommended im-
mediate preparation of an or-
dinance addressing impact
fees. Council member Ann
Sexton moved that Ramey
be authorized to prepare an


ordinance on impact fees.
Sexton suggested $400 fees
for water and $500 for sewer,
for a total of $900.
The motion was carried
without opposition.
Other items on the agenda
included an update on con-
struction of Paxton's ball
park. The fields are report-
edly complete, except for dug-
out covers. Fences are under


construction, but lighting for
parking lots and concession
stands has yet to be finished.
Walton County has appar-
ently allocated money for the
lights, but funds are still be-
ing raised.

Proposed recreation center for
elder citizens workshop March 30
A distinguished panel of experienced senior center ad-
ministrators will assemble in DeFuniak Springs in re-
sponse to a request by the Walton County Commission,
who asked for more information and a plan of opera-
tions for a proposed recreation center for elder citizens.
In the process of gathering information, College Av-
enue Complex Committee (CACC) members
have visited senior centers in Tallahassee and Fort
Walton Beach, and in Alabama, at facilities in Geneva,
Florala, and Andalusia. The Florida Department of El-
der Affairs is also expected to participate in the public
workshop that will be held on March 30.
The College Avenue Complex Committee was ap-
pointed by the county commissioners for the purpose of
developing informa-tion regarding the use of the gov-
ernment complex as a recreation center for elder citi-
zens. The facility, known locally as the "Warren Build-
ing," is scheduled to be vacated in 2007, as various
county departments move back to the newly expanded
courthouse.
The public is urged to participate in the upcoming
workshop on March 30 at 10 a.m. at the Walton County
Extension Office, Hwy. 83N in DeFuniak Springs.

WCHD working on
countywide flu action plan


By BRUCE COLLIER
Led by the Walton County
Health Department, county
officials and other concerned
organizations are working on
a county-wide action,plan in
the event of an influenza pan-
demic.
The plan will take into ac-
count information and ideas
gathered at the March 14
tabletop exercise, held at the
Walton County Emergency
Operations Center.
Among the participants at
that workshop were Walton
County Health Department,
Walton County Emergency
Management, Tri-County
Community Council, Wal-
'Mart, Choctawhatchee Elec-
tric Cooperative, Walton
County Clerk's Office, Walton
County Emergency Medical
Services, Health- mark Re-

and DeFuniak Springs Police
Department.
According .to Campbell,
"The greatest challenge of a
pandemic is to control the
spread of the disease. In ad-
dition, the public may be iso-
lated for an extended period
of time."
"This isolation impacts how
the public receives food
andmedicine,attends school


and work, and responds to
protective actions from gov-
ernment."'
According to some scien-
tists, another pandemic of
influenza could occur "at any
time and possibly well out-
side the typical influenza sea-
son, which ends in early
March."
The last outbreak of influ-
enza widespread enough to be
classed as a pandemic (world-
wide epidemic) occurred in
1968-1969.

Second boot camp death
autopsy deepens controversy


The Hillsborough County
medical examiner's report is
expected in a few weeks.
In the meantime, Gover-
nor Jeb Bush has ordered an


investigation. The United
States Attorney in Tallahas-
see, and the Civil Rights Di-
vision of the Justice Depart-
ment are also looking into the


incident.
As yet, no criminal charges
have been filed, and no civil
action has been brought.
The Panama City boot

camp will close next month.
The seven camp drill instruc-
tors involved in the incident,
along with a nurse who wit-
nessed it, will lose their jobs.


By BRUCE COLLIER
Following a second au-
topsy, the family of Martin
Lee Anderson, the 14-year-
old inmate of a Panama City
boot camp who died in cus-
tody, is threatening to sue,
and has accused Bay County
authorities of a cover up.
Anderson died in a hospi-
tal on January 6, following a
videotaped incident in which
camp officials, Bay County
sheriff's employees, appear
to have beaten and dragged
him.
An initial autopsy, per-
formed by Bay County county
medical examiner Charles
Seibert, concluded that
Anderson's death was the re-
sult of "natural causes," due
to sickle cell trait.
A second autopsy was per-
formed in Tampa on March


13. Observing that autopsy
was Michael Baden, a high-
profile pathologist from New
York.
Baden, who hosts a cable
television program about fo-
rensic science, attended at
the request of Anderson's
family.
Neither Baden not the
Hillsborough County medical
examiner would comment on
the actual cause of death.
However, the second au-
topsy noted bruising on
Anderson's body that appar-
ently had not been noted in
the first autopsy.
Seibert still maintains his
original findings of death
from complications due to
sickle cell trait. Attorneys for
Anderson's family reportedly
called Seibert's stand "an in-
sult to the family."


LIFE INSURANCE
It's funny how being underinsured can sneak up
on you. Your family grows. Your spare time
shrinks. Which means you may not get around
to thinking about your new insurance needs.
So think about them now. Call your local
representative and talk to the leader in life
insurance. Having the right amount of coverage
is a feeling you'll love.

Community to come together
for Town Hall meeting on
underage drinking
DeFuniak Springs, FL, in Walton County is one of hun-
dreds of communities nationwide that will hold an Un-
derage Drinking Prevention: National Town Hall Meet-
ing. It will be held on Tuesday, March 28,2006, at Maude
Saunders Elementay School, from 6 -8 p.m., to discuss
and raise awareness about the issue of underage drink-
ing. COPE CENTER, in collaboration with the federal
government's Interagency Coordinating Committee for
the Prevention of Underage Drinking is sponsoring the
event. Parents, teachers, officials, youth, and other com-
munity members will be educated about the impact that
underage drinking has on the community, and they will
develop possible ways to address this issue.
New data show that approximately 29 percent of
youth, ages 12 to 20, have used alcohol illegally. By the
time they reach eighth-grade, 41 percent of adolescents
have had at least one drink, and almost 20 percent re-
port having been "drunk."


Police officer retires


By BRUCE COLLIER
On April 22, a seven-year
veteran of the DeFuniak
Springs Police Department
(DFSPD) will retire.
K9 officer Kilo, a German
shepherd/Labrador mix, will
step down from his duties as
a law enforcement officer.
Kilo, eight years old, has
assisted the DFSPD in the
seizure of a total of $30,000
in cash and vehicles, most of
which were employed in the
sale and delivery of illegal
drugs in the DeFuniak


prnngs area.
Kilo has also assisted in
drug interdictions involving
"thousands of dollars" worth
of crack cocaine, cocaine pow-
der, marijuana, Ecstasy, and
methamphetamine.
Through Kilo's efforts, over
100 criminal suspects, most
of whom were implicated in
narcotics offenses, were ap-
prehended and arrested.
DFSPD is currently seek-
ing a replacement for Kilo
from a nationwide list of
qualified canines.

Walton County Community Survey

Senior Life Enrichment Center


The College Avenue Complex Committee was formed by the Walton County Board of County
Commissioners. Advisory in nature the committee was instructed to develop information to
utilize the county government complex on College Avenue in DeFuniak Springs for recreation
purposes to support the elder citizen community. This would be accomplished as county
employees are moved to the new courthouse later in 2006 and 2007.

The committee had two public meetings and received citizen input that recommended the facility
and adjacent property should be utilized as a senior center for recreation and life enrichment
purposes. This was approved and a report was delivered to the Board of County Commissioners
on February 7, 2006. A similar report was delivered to the City Council of DeFuniak Springs on
February 6, 2006.

To provide the public a clear opportunity to express their wishes on the type of programs and
activities they would like to see a community-wide survey is being conducted. Activities listed
in the survey are only suggestive, and should be not be considered as imminent if a senior center
is approved and developed. -

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


PERSONAL COMMENTS


EDITOR'S COMMENT


Gale winds blowing away from Florida


I an still hear the cheers and applause after tourism
offials and environmentalists got word that Gale Norton,
Secretary of the Interior, resigned suddenly on March 10.
Florida residents will remember that it was Norton who
: .pr.ii eLdl led the charge for the authority to allow drilling
for oil and natural gas close to the Florida coastline. After
being blocked for years by Sen. Bill Nelson and others,
Norton even tried a sleight-of-hand trick by claiming that
Florida's Gulf waters were actually Louisiana Gulf waters,
which does allow drilling.
The foundation of the opposition has been the danger of
an industrial accident that could harm Florida's No. 1 at-
traction the beaches. The importance of Florida's beaches
cannot be overstated. Despite repeated assaults by multiple
hurricanes last year, Florida again broke all previous tour-
ism records. According to the state, 85.8 million people vis-
ited Florida beaches in 2005, six million more than in 2004.
The good news is that Sen. Nelson, and now Sen. Mel
3L1r inczr. remain resolved to fight any attempt to allow drill-
ing in the Gulf. The disappointing news is that Sen. Pete
Domenici, a Republican senator from New Mexico, has in-
troduced a bill that would bring drilling rigs no more than
100 miles from the Florida coast and open up more than
4.5 million watery acres for offshore drilling. The White
House actually supports this bill.


Editor:
Recently I have seen mention of a proposed recreation fa-
cility for horses here in Walton County. I have read pros
and cons about the project and felt strongly that some people
were missing the point.
For some months, my husband and I have worked at a
similar facility in the Baker area and I am here to tell you
that the possibilities for use are not limited to local horse-
men. I have seen internationally- known horse clinics held
that brought in participants from as far away as Ohio and
North Carolina. In addition, I have seen Arab shows that
draw from all over the southeastern states, as well as team
penning, barrel racing and regionally and nationally- ranked
rodeos. Those are just the horse events. A facility like this
also draws events such as local and regional dog agility
shows and provides a location for covered car shows and
clinics. The possibilities are endless. Many locals come just
to watch for an afternoon.
All of these events paid to use the facility. In addition,
those participants who stayed on site paid a fair usage fee
for RV hookups and those using stalls paid an additional
fee as well. These usage fees can make the facility self sup-
porting as well as generate additional income for the county.
A facility such as this can have a major influence on the
income of our area because those people participating, as
well as watching, come into the area; they stay in motels or
campgrounds, they eat in our restaurants and they shop in
our stores and gas stations.
A recent event in Pensacola at the Escambia CountyArena
brought in millions of dollars to the local economy through
the types of businesses I have mentioned, as well as through
feed and supplies for the horses. They sold over $60,000 in
shavings for the stalls alone.
As far as funding; grant money, which is what would be
used to pay for this facility, is very specific. Agriculture De-
partment grants can only be spent on agriculture matters.
It cannot be spent on roads or water or sewer.
I feel that this facility would also provide a safe location
for our horse owners, and Walton County has a lot of them,
to ride and practice their skills. The Baker arena is open for
the locals to use anytime, free of charge, unless it is booked
for a specific event. It would also provide a location for local
youth groups, such as 4-H, to hold events helping them to
raise funds as well as provide the opportunity to compete
with their peers.
A facility such as the one suggested would be a great as-
set to our county and can mean only good things for the
area. And for those of you who might be thinking that I
have a vested interest in this, I do not own horses. I do not
own dogs, and I am not a developer or contractor. I just have
first hand knowledge of what a facility like this can do. I see
the happy smiling faces of the children and adults each time
I am in Baker and I see families together and, in the words
of Martha Stewart,"That's a good thing."
Sincerely,
Rickie Wood-Bovee

However, Sen. Nelson has promised to filibuster
Domenici's bill on the Senate floor. A filibuster is when a
lawmaker addresses the House or Senate during session
and keeps talking and does not relinquish the floor thus
preventing the bill from going to a vote by the full House or
Senate.
Nelson and Martinez have a better plan that allows drill-
ing, but keeps it 150 miles from the beaches between Tampa
and Pensacola and sets a 250 mile buffer in places where
the military trains as they do at Eglin AFB. Their plan
also opens less than one-fourth of the amount of offshore
acres called for in the Domenici plan,
Nelson says he will also block the nomination of the next
Secretary of Interior if that person also favors drilling off
the Panhandle shores.
The best part of the Nelson-Martinez bill is that is a bi-
partisan effort, showing that Republicans and Democrats
can successfully put aside their differences and work to-
gether for the greater good.
In a time where many Republican and Democratic law-
makers seem to have lost their moral and ethical compass,
this is a most refreshing change and it fills me with the
hope that there are better days on the horizon.



Editor:
Warning! If you use the U.S. Postal Service mailing sys-
tem, you should be on -guard for possible postal fraud that
can lead to identity theft. It happened to me and it could
happen to you. My problem started when my local post
office decided to forward my mail to an.address in Jackson-
ville, FL, without my knowledge and without my authori-
zation.,
The postmaster told me that they received an email in-
forming them to forward my mail. That email has since
mysteriously disappeared and for some reason cannot be
traced to the originator? Obviously, the post office person-
nel did not authenticate that email prior to forwarding my
mail, and the postmaster told me they had no requirement
to authenticate information such as this before taking ac-
tion. (Think on that for a minute!)
Following this event of postal fraud, I have experienced
identity theft using my social security number, telephone
number, name, address, etc. Obviously, someone at that ad-
dress in Jacksonville got my identity information and is
using it. So, I urge everyone to be aware and take precau-
tions.

Gracious goodness DeFuniak Springs! Yes, gracious was
the setting at the Spires/Potter home on the Circle for the
Victorian Tea. Gracious was Mrs. Potter for allowing us to
once again rearrange her home to seat 44 guests at a time.
Gracious is the Herald, our local radio stations, Mom and
Dad's, Heavenly Designs and Murray's, for promoting the
ticket sales. Gracious was Marylene Rhodes for tea pots, to
Nell Baker, Jean Anderson, Faye Hardy, Dr. Mayfield, Jim
and Carol Dorsey and Dr. Mendy Henderson, who gave
countless hours of their time and talents.
The real gracious goodness award goes to the every-tal-
ented and devoted Cindy Woodham and Oletta Ray. With-
out these ladies, a tea would not be possible. Sara, you would
have been proud of Mendy she kept the teapots going.
The goodness was the real spirit of a team who laughed,
worked and truly joined hands to make this tea the best
ever. It is with a song in our hearts to have served 254 guests,
enabling us to share $750 withtSt. Agatha's, who opens its
doors to so many in our community.
I thank all who made this tea the best ever especially
our locals, who were so supportive.

Ellen Mayfield
Tea Chairman


Editor:
March is national "Mental Retardation Awareness
Month." Unaware to most, there are approximately 170
million people with intellectual disabilities worldwide, and
more than seven million in the United States, many in our
own communities.
Through Special Olympics, we serve over one million ath-
letes with intellectual disabilities in more than 160 coun-
tries providing year-round sports training and competition
in 26 Olympic-type summer and winter sports. Yet to reach
the millions who could benefit from this program, we need
the help of many more volunteers and contributors.
We see the abilities not the limitations of people with
intellectual disabilities. For every athlete, there is a story
of triumph and perseverance. But our athletes' successes
don't happen in a vacuum: they need the support and ac-
ceptance of their communities. Recently, Floridians showed
their support of these extraordinary athletes by joining forces
with Publix Super Markets to raise over $1.65 million dol-
lars for Special Olympics Florida in the month of January.
This support helps make Special Olympics a reality for more
people than ever before.
.While everyone can benefit from sports, for our athletes
there are also clinical benefits like health and fitness and
self-esteem and greater social adjustment. But at the end of
the day, Special Olympics is an environment where people
with intellectual disabilities can be successful and where
parents can be proud of their children. That's no small feat
given the amount of prejudice and discrimination that most
of our athletes face on a day-to-day basis.
By participating in Special Olympics, people with intel-
lectual disabilities have gained the self-confidence and so-
cial skills to succeed both on and off the playing field: indi-
viduals once thought burdens to society are proving them-
selves productive citizens.
If you would like to support a movement that celebrates
differences and embraces acceptance and understanding,
call Special Olympics Florida at 1-800-322-HERO (4376) or
visit us on the web at www.sofl.org and volunteer today. In
addition, April is "National Volunteerism Month," so get
involved. With your help, everyone wins.

Peters said that the city

Editor,
On March 30, Thursday of next week, the community will
have: an opportunity to participate in a public workshop to
learn what a life enrichment center for senior citizens is all
about. The college Avenue Complex Committee of the Wal-
ton County Commission is hosting a public workshop as part
of an ongoing study to develop a plan to use the government
complex as a senior center for recreation purposes.
Heading the workshop panel will be Sheila Sayler, direc-
tor of the Tallahassee Senior Center and the Florida Asso-
ciation of Senior Centers'. The Tallahassee Center is one of
only five ii Florida that is nationally certified. Also, Jackie
Flemming, director of the Creative Senior Center in Fort
Walton Beach is a panelist. Other distinguished experts are
being recruited to assist.
Information is also being gathered with a community-wide
survey. Forms can be obtained at the public library on Circle
Drive, DeFuniak Springs, City Hall, Citizens Services at
the government complex on College Avenue, and through
the county website at www.co.walton.fl.us.
Senior centers help people remain living independently
and provide activities that encourage health, wellness, so-
cial interaction and connections to their communities. Older
adults experience less isolation and increased socialization,
and in doing so, prevent depression and enjoy more life sat-
isfaction.
While senior centers provide a wide array of opportuni-
ties for health and fitness, the "social fitness" aspect is the
greatest benefit to participants. A broad range of recreation
activities, health and wellness, senior services, educational
classes, art classes, and special events can give meaning to
the life of our elder citizens. A centralized center for elders
to participate can become the community focal point for ser-
vices of a wide variety.
A life enrichment center for the elder population energized
with enthusiasm, purpose, and conviction will bring Wal-
ton County into the 21st century with a meaningful recog-
nition of the elder population. The county, commission and
the city council of DeFuniak Springs are working together
to help bring this to reality.
Local civic clubs, social organizations, interested busi-
nesses, and especially'the senior population are urged to
participate in the public workshop, March 30, 10 a.m. Wal-
ton County Extension Service Office at the fairgrounds.

lice Department (DFSPD)
has recently added two addi-
tional flags to its department
central flagpole.
Recently the DFSPD
added the Florida state flag

minders of the city's links to
the state of Florida, and the
selfless and exemplary ser-
vice that members of our mili-
tary forces, many of whom
have roots to the DeFuniak
Springs area, have given
through the decades.
The DFSPD would like to
thank the Veterans of Foreign
Wars Post #4437 for the gen-

The Walton County School
District is working hard to
keep up with the expected
influx of students at the el-
ementary level expected in
the near future. Proposed
housing developments and
near capacity levels at Maude
Saunders and West DeFu-
niak Elementary schools has
led to the development of a
new elementary school in
Mossy Head.
Student enrollment from
January indicated a gain of
just 17 overall students from
August, but down signifi-
cantly from levels that
Katrina evacuees caused to
nearly shoot off the charts in

The public is cordially invited to attend.

KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION for the 2006-2007
school year will be held at all Walton County elementary
schools, March 20-24 and March 27-31, 2006 from 8 a.m.
until 2:30 p.m.
To be eligible to enter kindergarten, a child must be five
years of age on or before September 1, 2006.
An official proof of birth is required at the time of regis-
tration. Hospital certificates are not official birth records.
Parents who do not have their child's birth certificate can
obtain a certified copy by making a request to the state in
which the child was born. Because this is often a lengthy
process, parents needing to obtain a certificate are urged to
do so now in order to receive it prior to this registration
period. Children born in the state of Florida may obtain an
official birth certificate at the Walton County Public Health
Unit, located on Highway 83, in DeFuniak Springs. There
is a fee of $12.
Before entering school in August, each kindergarten child
must have an official birth certificate (required for registra-
tion), social security number, health examination, and cur-
rent immunization record (DOH 680).
Parents will need to see their.child's health provider for a
current exam and immunization update.

per square foot that Free-
port and South Walton High
schools were built at 7-8 years
ago.
"Is this figure right?" Mark
Davis asked during the pro-
cess. "Are we going to be able
to build a new elementary
school in Mossy Head and a
new Walton High School at
what we projected if these
numbers are right?"
Wayne Miller explained,
"With the demand on labor,
apparently builders have
plenty to do already. We
aren't getting the volume of

CITY
FROM FRONT
have not yet come before the
planning board or the city
council.
Included in that is a 60-
home gated community west
of Stanley House, also on
Walton Road.
Most of the developments
that are currently in this re-
view process, however, are for
townhouses, single-family
dwellings that homeowners
own from the ground to the
roof. They are connected in
groups to allow for more
homes to built on a single
piece of property.
For example, there are
plans for 138 in a develop-,
ment at the intersection of
20th Street and U.S. 90,67 on
Shoemaker Drive, 190 on U.S.
331 South, 40 on Dorsey Av-
enue, and as many as 700
southwest of Interstate 10.
A boom in construction is
clearly expected, but it re-
mains unknown how soon the
homes will be built.
Concerns about traffic are
noted, but, Laird says, there
will always be traffic prob-
lems. They aren't going away.
The more pressing issue is
providing affordable housing
to residents. "There is defi-
nitely a problem with real af-
fordable housing," he says.
Average people cannot af-
ford large pieces of property
and with the basic starting
'point for homes today at


bids we would like nor at a
rate we were hoping for."
Board members decided to
think about the bids pre-
sented before taking action at
the next meeting in early
April.
Board member Darrell
Barnhill commented, "If we
don't act now, what will the
price be if we wait longer?"
Walton County continues
to see projected new housing
estimates at near off the
chart rates, and when coupled
with new residences or re-
pairs on those damaged by
recent storms from Navarre
to New Orleans, contractors
with time for these projects
are dwindling at taking on

$130,000, townhouses are
thought to be the way to go.
As long as recreational ar-
eas, streets, water, sewer, and
other necessary infrastruc-
ture can be provided, Laird
says, "We have to go with it."
This again underscores the
fact that DeFuniak Springs is
a growing city, one whose
progress won't be halted. As
things go according to plan,
residents can expect to see
many new homes and busi-
nesses in their city.


these time consuming
projects. The result of ample
work has left construction
companies looking for enough
reliable labor to get projects
done on schedule, and has
upped costs for labor and
materials needed to complete
projects.
In other news from the
meeting, Superintendent
Carlene Anderson and Board
Chairman Bill Laird com-
mended Chief Financial Of-
ficer Jim McCall for work he
and his staff did in preparing
the district's financial state-
ments for the fiscal year end-
ing on June 30, 2005. The
Auditor General returned a
positive report with only
three findings from the sub-
mission, one number less
than many school districts
ever attain.
Mark Davis was chosen to
serve on the Financial Advi-
sory Committee for the sec-
ond year in a row. The com-
mittee was formed to help
provide accountability to the
public for the spending of the
special millage election pro-
ceeds.
The board will convene
their next meeting on Mon-
day, April 3, at 5 p.m.

There's a new face in town
and his job is to make DeFu-
niak Springs a cleaner, safer,
more h,':mt ilul place to live.
Jason O'Daniels, Code En-
forcement officer for the city
of DeFuniak Springs, is not
new to the area. and began
his job in February.
O'Daniels is from Walton
County. This helps explain
his approach.
"Our city is a family," he
says. "Everybody needs to
think of it as a family. We all
live here together. We're all
part of the same bubble."
In spite of these senti-
ments, some citizens of De-
Funiak are concerned. In the
past, code enforcement has
not been strict in the city. Re-
cently, with O'Daniels on the
job, that has changed. Some
residents are left feeling
overwhelmed and unsure of
what the rules are.
Take, for example, signs
for things such as yard sales,
jobs, lost pets, and political
candidates. These are typi-
cally placed on trees, in
parks, on telephone poles,
along streets and in medians.
However, signs may not le-
gally be put up by residents
in any of these locations.
Signs can be put up only
on personal property, within
one's own property line. Ac-
cording to O'Daniels, public
right of way, where signs are
not allowed, extends from the
center of the street 37 feet in
either direction. Signs placed
on public property will be re-
moved.
There is also a limit on the
size of these signs and the
length of time they may re-
main posted. They may not
exceed six square feet in
area, and may only remain
from five days before an
event until five days after the
event.
One of the more common
violations, says O'Daniels.


hides.
Abandoned vehicles are
any vehicles without valid,
current tags. Even a running
vehicle without such a tag is
considered abandoned. Ve-
hicles with valid tags, but
that are being stripped apart
are abandoned vehicles.
Abandoned vehicles, even
in one's own yard, violate city
ordinances and should be
properly disposed of.
Generally, junk yards and
towing companies will re-
move vehicles from yards for
a small fee or for free with the
title.
Classic cars are a different
matter. If being restored,
these may be kept as long as
they are sheltered and cov-
ered.
Thus, people with an
abandoned vehicle have
three options. Shelter it, put
a valid license tag on it, or
remove it from city limits.
Vehicles that are for sale
may be left on personal prop-
erty for about a Week. These
should not be left in business
parking lots as they may be
towed at the owner's ex-
pense..

Another recent change in-
volves garbage pickup. Prior
to 1998, the city would pick
up discarded construction
materials. However, the ordi-
nances have changed, and
these things, including two-
by-fours, flooring and dry
wall materials, must be per-
sonally taken to the landfill.
Household items, such as
refrigerators, ovens, couches
and beds, as well as metal
products, like old vents, will
be picked up by the city.
Trees cut down by
homeowners, if cut into
pieces no more than four feet
in length and two feet in di-
ameter, will be picked up by
the city. But if a contractor
does this work, disposal is
the responsibility of the ho-


O'Daniels said discarded out certified letters.After two Florida statutes, city ordi-


personal property cannot be
left to pile up in yards.
This, O'Daniels explains,
could introduce the risk of
disease to the area, as decay-
ing animal flesh has been
known to lead to anthrax and
black plague.
Fines for violating city or-
dinances can range from ten
dollars a day to five hundred
dollars a day and penalties
can go up to sixty days injail.
For violators, there may


or three are received without
compliance, it then goes to
the city attorney, which in-
volves court fees and other
expenses. Liens may also be
put against property.
The penalties are steep, but
their intent is good, said
O'Daniels.
"We're not doing it to be
mean to the citizens. We're
doing it to help the surround-
ing citizens not have to suf-
fer," says O'Daniels. "I'm not


nances."
If ever in doubt about any
of these issues, he says, ask.
To reach the city Code En-
forcement office, call 892-
8571. City Hall can also be
contacted for information.

The flush of azalea blooms have announced the arrival of spring. March 20 was '
the first official day of spring, but you did not need a calendar to tell that winter has
gone. The native dogwoods and redbud trees are blossoming everywhere.
The intoxicating fragrances of wisteria and sweet olive trees have the bees buzzing and th,-
butterflies fluttering. Cascades of coral honesuckle and yellow jasmine light up the l rn.d-
scape.
Now is the time to plant new plants, but be careful with the cold sensitive annuals Re-
member, there could still be a late frost before Easter. If a yard does not have early sprni n,
color, this is a good time to evaluate what it is missing. Perhaps some native spring flc'.. er-
ing trees like redbuds, dogwoods, crabapples, plums or fringe trees.
There are a great variety of native spring flowering shrubs to choose from, pink pinx; st:-r
azaleas, orange Florida flame azaleas, oakleafhydrangeas, Florida anise, sweet shrub, vitbur-
nums, beach rosemary, native blueberries, fetter-bushes, and titi. There are lot's :.4
things to do in your garden to rejuvenate the old and prepare for the new additions. Whent-r
your camellias, azaleas and other early spring flowering shrubs finish blooming you can
fertilize and prune them. Please remember that regular fertilizer often contains Nitrate
nitrogen that can damage the roots of azaleas. Use a fertilizer marked for azaleas and other
acid loving plants, usually 8-8-8 or 16-4-8.
It's time to remove dead foliage and fertilize your palms and sagos with special palm f;. 'od
that contains magnesium and other nutrients they need. Rejuvenate your Liriope (monrke,

brown leaves. This can be done with hand shears if you prefer. After trimming water j nd
fertilize it to stimulate fresh new growth. It's time to pickup the dead branches and trim
back dead stems and dried seed heads left from winter. Rake away the debris and add Ire- h
mulch if needed and fertilize your shrubs and perennials. The latest research suggests
using a slow release fertilizer (12-4-8 or 16-4-8) saves you time and is most beneficial to
your plants.
Amendments such as peat, compost or manure are always a good way to improve your
fluTwer beds without chemical fertilizers. Remember that mulchl pla;, s an imp,-,rtant r,-,ll in

This is a great time to reassess your landscape- and replace s:omie of thu.-e high mainte-

This lovely setting in De-
Funiak Springs was once
again the scene of the Victo-
rian Tea Feb. 23, 24, and 25
in conjunction with the
Chautauqua Assembly. Vic-
torian attire was the dress
style for Dr. Lynn and Ellen
Mayfield and Jim and Carol
Dorsey, who escorted guests
to the formal tables.

Attendees from the Assem-
bly, the Red Hat Society,
Destin, Niceville, Crestview,
Mobile, Ft. Walton Beach,
Panama City and many lo-
cals feasted on dainty tea
foods, prepared by Cindy
Woodham, Oletta Ray and
Ellen Mayfield.
The site of the tea, once a
again, was made possible by
Joyce Potter, who so gra-
ciously shared her home.
Proceeds of $750 were pre-
sented to St. Agatha's to aid
with the Lakeside Concert
Series or any other commu-
nity project that the church
supports.

There are so many things to enjoy in Walton County's great outdoors in the spring and summer. Whether you
are enjoying a backyard barbeque, hiking, swimming, or just enjoying sitting around, spring and summer mean
it's time to get outside. But nothing spoils the fun faster than one very small "bug," the mosquito. Not only is
the mosquito a nuisance but they can also carry diseases that pose a threat to you and your family's health.

Mosquitoes thrive in moist and relatively warm environments and can live anywhere from salt marshes to stag-
nant water. All mosquitoes feed on nectar and other sugary sources, most female mosquitoes also require
blood. They prefer horses, cattle, birds or small animals, but humans, unfortunately, are also on the menu.
Mosquitoes use carbon dioxide, moisture, color and movement to help locate their pray. They are most active
from dusk to dawn, but can be active during the daytime as well, especially on cloudy days and in shady areas.

In south Walton mosquito control is handled by the South Walton Mosquito Control District. Property owners
south of the Choctawhatchee Bay are assessed .1193 mills on the value of their property and these funds go to
the South Walton Mosquito Control District. They also receive funding through the State of Florida. The dis-
trict is governed by an elected board.of directors. Gary D'Andrea is manager of the South Walton Mosquito
Control District.

Seventeen mosquito traps are located throughout south Walton and checked weekly. If a high concentration of
mosquitoes is found, then the area is spray to reduce the adult population. Larvicide is used in standing water
to kill larvae in catch basins and along the side of roads. This treatment is done once a month during the sum-
mer months and a pre-treatment is done in the spring. Residents can call the district office at 267-2112 and
someone will come and do an inspection, and if needed, spray the area.
South Walton Mosquito Control also handles yellow fly (deer fly) control and does dog fly surveillance for the
Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

North of the Bay the North Walton Mosquito Control, a division under Public Works, handles mosquito anni-
hilation. Their funding comes from the Board of County Commissioners and the State of Florida. Brenda
Hunt, manager of the department says they use organized control programs which include the removal of mos-
quito breading habitats, using pesticides to reduce larval populations larvicidee), pesticides to reduce adult
populations (adulticide). They use monitoring sites throughout the county and spray only when a high concen-
tration of mosquitoes is found. Residents can call the service request line at 892-8183 for help with mosquito
suppression on their property.


HANNA WELDON, age 4, of Panama City, awaiting her
food with excitement.


Since most mosquitoes breed in standing water, source reduction is the
simplest way to control the pests. Homeowners can eliminate mosquito
breading grounds by removing unused plastic pools, old tires an buckets;
by clearing clogged gutters and repairing leaks around faucets; by regularly
changing water in bird baths; and by filling or draining puddles, swampy
areas, and tree stumps. Eliminating mosquito'breeding areas is an ex-
tremely effective and permanent way to reduce the mosquito population
around your home.

In Memory

of Arthur
With my most heartfelt
gratitude and love, I would
like to thank each of you who
stood by me during the most
painful and saddest days of
my life.
To my immediate family
who held me up when I
couldn't stand on my own.
For all the long hours, er-
rands, trips to pick up what
I needed, for all they did I
owe them a debt of gratitude
I can never repay.
For friends that couldn't
come because of illnesses of
their own, but was always
standing by the phone, day
or night, in case I needed to
talk. Their concern for me
never waivered. They were
my rock.
There aren't enough words
to express my thanks to
Clary-Glenn, Funsal Home..
SWith'the help asidkindness
ofthiem, and thelr mployees
they enabled me to get some
must needed rest, and just
made things that needed to
be finished happen.
For the ministers, the pall-
bearers, and any last minute
details. Thank you.
We don't know why God
took Arthur from us at this
time, but I'm sure He must
have had a mission for him.
Perhaps because of his love
for flowers, there were a few
more rosebushes to get out,
or trellises made for the ones
that were already growing.
While our loved one is help-
ing plant roses in Heaven, we
could be sowing seeds here on
this earth. Seeds of kindness,
love, beauty, joy, and forgive-
ness, until we are all together
in our eternal home, never to
be separated again.

God bless each of you,
Faye Slay Infinger

Failing Forward
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC

Alexander Pope wrote,"To err is human, to forgive
divine." This was written almost 250 years ago, and
he was actually paraphrasing an ancient Roman say-
ing.
John Maxwell's book, "Leadership Promises For
Everyday," has some rules for being human:
You will learn lessons. There are no mistakes-only
lessons. A lesson is repeated until it is learned. If you
don't learn the easy lessons, they get harder, and you'll
know you've learned a lesson when your actions
change.
Norman Cousins was right when he remarked, "The
essence of man is imperfection."
Failure, my friend is simply a price we pay to
achieve success. If I learn to embrace that new defi-
nition of failure, then I can be free to start moving
ahead-and failing forward.

Sports News & Notes
By PATRICK CASEY
The University of Florida rallied from a 7-0 deficit on Sun-
day for an 8-7 win over Arkansas to take two games out of
three in Gainesville from the Razorbacks. Florida is 17-7 over-
all and 2-1 in Southeastern Conference play. The Gators are
ranked No. 13 in the country and will face South Carolina on
the road this weekend. Florida's basketball team will face
Georgetown late Friday night in the Sweet 16 round of the
NCAA men's basketball tournament in Minneapolis. The
game is scheduled as the second contest of a double-header
that will definitely be the featured game in the Southeast.
The OWC Raiders salvaged one game against Gulf Coast
in baseball over the weekend as they claimed a 13-3 win on
Sunday after losing the first two games of the series. OWC is
25-7 overall and 4-2 in the conference after the first two week-
ends of play. The Raiders will face Tallahassee Community

FAMU is in the midst of spring football practice and two
athletes that faced off against Walton figure into the Rat-
tlers plans in 2006. Javares Knight, a wide receiver, played
for FAMU High and is expected to play as a redshirt fresh-
man in 2006.
Jonathan White, a wideout from Pensacola Catholic, was
redshirted last season but is expected to play at safety in
2006. It was White's miracle 25-yard catch on a fourth down
play against Walton in 2004 from Eugene Smith that knocked
Walton out of the second round of the playoffs. Smith also
has signed to play football at FAMU this fall.
Walton swept Freeport in boys tennis action 8-0, while the
Walton girls claimed a 5-1 match victory. Woody Virgin and
Harper Roehm won their singles matches and teamed up to

College tuition

assistance available


A conservative estimate of
college costs for a full-time
student runs from $10,000-
$30,000; high cost colleges
can run from $40,000-
$100,000.
Most parents and students
think that scholarships are
only for the students with
excellent grades, low-income
families, or the athletically
inclined. A small example of
the numerous scholarships
available to students include:
handicapped student schol-
arships, members of a church
scholarship, scholarships for
"C" students, veteran
children's scholarships,
scholarships for minorities
and much more.
Though the majority of
scholarships are from the
federal government,and are
merit and/or need-baed, mnl-
lions of dollars are available
to students from private sec-
tor scholarships. Much ofpri-
vate sector financial aid goes
unused because thlieparents
and students do not know
how or where to apply.
There are organizations
that have spent hundreds of


hours in research locating
scholarship sources. The U.S.
Commission for Scholastic
Assistance College Bound is
such an organization and
supplies the public with over
1000 different private schol-
arships sources. The scholar-
ship list include the scholar-
ship names, addresses, appli-
cation deadlines, summaries
about the scholarships and
the amount the scholarship
will pay each student.
Many scholarships pay the
entire tuition; others can be
applied towards tuition, liv-
ing expenses and/or other
fees. Most scholarships can
be used at junior colleges,
career and vocational
schools, four year colleges,
graduate schools, medical
and law schools.
For information on obtain-
ing these scholarship lists,
send a self-addressed,
stamped, business size, #10,
envelope to: The U.S. Com-
mission for Scholastic Assis-
tance, P.O. Box 650067,

Davis named SEC
Player of the Year

By CHUCK HINSON
It was a shining day for the
LSU Tigers as two of their
players got top honors by the
NCAA. Glen Davis was se-
lected as the player of the
year by the Associated Press.
His teammate, Tyrus Tho-
mas, was voted top new-
comer for the SEC.
Tennessee also made an
appearance on the award ros-
ter with Bruce Pearl, who
took the Volunteers to their
first NCAA appearance since
2001. It seemed unusual for
many of the players, fans,
students and other universi-
ties, to see the men's basket-
ball team at the tournament,
since for year's the women's
team has dominated the
NCAA tournament and the
polls.
Davis joined the first team
along with players like
Ronnie Brewer of Arkansas;
Koakim Noah of Florida;
Ronald Steel ofAlabama; and
Chris Loftin of Tennessee.

Car dealers accused of

selling dangerous cars


Tom Gallagher, Florida's
chief financial officer, an-
nounced the arrests of two
Central Florida men accused
of defrauding auto insurers
and reselling dangerous cars
to unsuspecting buyers.
Gallagher is seeking more
than $1 million in restitution.
"This is a growing and trou-
bling problem in Florida- we
saw similar scams like this
appear in the wake of recent
hurricanes, as flooded and
hurricane-damaged vehicles
began appearing on used car
lots," said Gallagher, who
oversees the Department of
Financial Services' Division
of Insurance Fraud (DIF),
which led the investigation.
Hanford Andrew Sutter,
owner and operator of Or-
lando-based Total Fleet solu-
tion (TFS), along with An-
drew Dinda, a TFS employee,
are charged with engaging in
a scheme to defraud in addi-
tion to numerous counts of
filing false and fraudulent
insurance claims, grand
theft, and uttering forged
documents.
Sutter and Dinda billed
auto insurers nearly,
$800,000 in inflated damage
estimates on wrecked rental
car vehicles that they billed
as a total loss to collect higher
payments from the insurance
companies. Then, to avoid
the branding of "salvage" or


"rebuilt" on the cars' titles,
the men sold the damaged
cars to car dealers who resold
the cars to unsuspecting buy-
ers.
Gallagher is urging Florid-
ians to check if the Vehicle
Identification Number (VIN)
on their vehicle matches any
of the estimated 120 vehicles
re-sold as part of this scheme.
The VIN, a multi-digit, 17-
character alpha-numeric
identifier that establishes a
vehicle's unique identifica-
tion, is usually located on the
driver's side of the dash-
board, visible through the
windshield as well as on the
inside door panel, and in-
cluded in title or loan docu-
ments. To check the VIN,
visit www.fldfs.com and click
on "Fleet vehicle resell
scheme VIN CHECK." If a
match is indicated, the con-
sumer will be directed to call
their local DHSMV office.
The Department of Finan-
cial Services, Division of In-
surance Fraud, investigates
fraud in all types of insur-
ance, including health, life,
auto, property and workers'
compensation. To report in-
formation about this case or
any other possible insurance
fraud case, call the depart-
ment's Fraud Fighters
hotline at 1-800-378-0445. A
reward of up to $25,000 is of-
fered for information leading
to an arrest and conviction.

UF student

teams score

in turf competition


University of Florida
Turfgrass Club teams have
taken second and fourth
place in a national sports-
turf knowledge competition,
the Student Collegiate Chal-
lenge.
The event was held at.the
annual meeting of the Sports
Turf Managers Association
Jan. 18-21 in Orlando. It was
the first time UF entered the
competition, said Grady
Miller, an associate professor
with UF's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences
and the club's faculty adviser.
Members of the fourth-
place team are Troy Abbott,
a junior from DeFuniak
Springs, FL; Jason Frank, a
master's degree student from
Deland, FL; Pauric


McGroary, a master's degree
student from Donegal, Ire-
land; and Brett Perez, a se-
nior from Brandon, FL.
Twenty teams represent-
ing 16 universities took part
in the competition, Miller
said.
UF's teams initially tied for
first place and third place in
the competition, but were
overtaken in a tie-breaker by
Purdue University and Penn
State University, respec-
tively. The final positions
were determined by compar-
ing the teams' scores on one
section of the exam.
"Having two teams finish
in the top five was fantastic,"
Miller said. "I'm very proud
of our students for making
the most of this opportunity."


Head Gator


snaps at

returning players


By CHUCK HINSON
Just when you thought the
Florida Gators had come off
a good season with new head
football coach Urban Meyer,
he has things shaken up once
again in the swamp, espe-
cially with his players.
Meyer said he would play
a game or an entire season
without a running back if one
did not step up to the plate.
He said a strong running
game is critical to the success
of his spread-option offense.
There were numerous com-
plaints last year from play-
ers, coaches and fans of a
sluggish running game that
seemed to struggle to even
score last season. Meyer has
vowed not to let it happen
again.
Florida averaged 3.9 yards
a carry and 146.8 yards a
game last season. Meyer's
last year at Utah saw a run-
ning game that averaged 236
yards a game. Many say that
Meyer is looking at a confer-
ence much weaker than that
of Florida's in the SEC.
Meyer brought up such
Florida football stars at
Emmitt Smith and Fred Tay-
'lor with their contributions
they had made for the
Florida team during their
time at the university and on
the field.
He said Florida's
DeShawn Wynn, one of his
key tailbacks, was sus-
pended for the opener last
season. He was off and on,
but led the team with 621
yards rushing and seven
touchdowns for 2005.
Markus Manson also was
a key player last year, with
365 yards on the ground.
But the totals for Manson,

combined totals fell short of

Meyer said that the roster
is ready for spring practice
which starts March 29 and
he has several starters. But
Meyer said that if they don't
find a good tailback, then the
Gators will just play without
one.

"More aggressive"


remedy to bike path


problems urged


By DOTTY NIST

Dan McClary brought a
list of challenges with the
South Walton bicycle/pedes-
trian paths to the attention
of the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) on March 14.
This included landscaping
and overhanging trees block-
ing path users' sight lines,
large holes in pavement re-
sulting from work by utility
companies and contractors,
excessive sand gravel, and
construction materials on the
paths, some parts of the
paths being too narrow for
two bikes to pass safely, in-
adequate signage, "out-of-
control" sprinklers, heavy
objects within the path, ve-
hicles parked on the paths,
sharp 45- and 90-degree
turns, and failure of motor-
ists to yield at crosswalks.


McClary, a member of the
Okaloosa-Walton Transpor-
tation Organization's bicycle
and pedestrian advisory com-
mittee, said he spoke on be-
half of himself and many fel-
low Walton County runners
and cyclists who use the
paths on a regular basis.
McClary said he and a
group ofrunners and cyclists
had met with commissioners
and county staff on the prob-
lems but that the meetings
had not resulted in improve-
ments being implemented.
He emphasized the impor-
tance of awarding proposed
contracts for maintenance
and repair of the paths as.
soon as possible and enforc-
ing county ordinances apply-
ing to the paths.
"We are requesting a more
aggressive approach before
the beginning of the next
tourist season," McClary told


WEATHER HAS been next to perfect this month for cy-
cling, walking or skating on the public multi-use paths span-
ning south Walton County, but the condition of the paths is
far from perfect, judging from recent testimony to the Walton
County' Board of County Commissioners.


the commissioners.
He suggested that a phone
number be set up for report-
ing of problems with the
paths.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows noted that
last year the BCC passed an
ordinance requiring any con-
tractor or developer who
damages the path to repair
the damage.
Meadows said she would
bring a set of recommenda-
tions regarding the multi-use
paths before the BCC in
early April for consideration.
County engineering con-
sultants Genesis Group are
also expected to provide rec-
ommendation for the paths
to the BCC in public session
the second week of April.
Those are expected to include
signage requirements and an
eight-foot minimum width
for the path, which is now
only six feet wide in some
places.
County Attorney David
Hallman volunteered to coor-
dinate with the Walton
County Sheriffs Department
to address any problems pre-
venting that department
from issuing citations for ve-
hicles illegally parked on the
paths.
Assistant County Admin-
istrator Shirl Williams re-
ported that the repair con-
tract for the paths is com-
plete and that the contractor
is expected to proceed with
repairs during the week of
March 20. The maintenance
contract is now under review
by the county administrator,
she added.
The BCC unanimously
approved a motion to move
forward with citations for
violations of county ordi-
nance applying to the bicycle/
pedestrian paths, including
illegal parking on the paths,
use of the paths by motorized
vehicles, and other viola-
tions.


THANKS TO DISTINCTIVE CYCLES owner Jerry Byrd and five generous local busi-
nessmen, Walton County's new lifeguard program is in much better shape with regard to
water rescue equipment. Last week two new Seadoos and trailers from the Freeport business
became the property of the South Walton Fire District (SWFD,) the agency now under con-
tract for surf rescue in the pilot lifeguard program initiated this month on Walton County 's
beaches. "We're happy that we're able to provide this...it's heart warming that we have people
who care, Byrd told Gary Wise, SWFD beach safety director, and SWFD District ChiefRob-
ert Fleming. The wave runners were purchased through donations from Ricky Rookis, Will-
iam Smith, Lloyd Blue, M.C. Davis, and Doodle Harris. Pictured, from left, are Fleming,
Byrd, and Wise.




County seeks facilitator


for seawall issue


By DOTTY NIST
In an effort to obtain com-
munity consensus on issues
with post-Hurricane Dennis
seawalls, the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) recently de-
cided to seek the services of
a facilitator.
The BCC decision was
reached at the March 14
regular meeting after a rec-
ommendation by David
Hallman, director of the
county's Legal Services, and
strong support by District 5
Commissioner Cindy Mead-
ows.
Hallman noted the emo-
tional nature of recent pub-
lic meetings where the topic
had been discussed. Last'
week Hallman met with
beachfront property owners
who had constructed coastal
armoring, and other citizens,
to discuss a plan for the
county to assist the owners
in applying for grant funding


for a habitat conservation
plan. The plan would be
aimed at addressing endan-
gered species issues raised by
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service. Additional public
meetings with seawall own-
ers are envisioned in the near
future. On March 14, the
BCC voted to tentatively pro-
ceed with the grant applica-
tion, with seawall owners in-
terested in participating
serving as applicants.
.Meadows commented on
March 21 that she believes
an unbiased party (the facili-
tator) will be able to help
work out "a plan that every-
body can buy into" through
meetings with all stakehold-
ers.
The central question to
Meadows was what the.
county's role should be in the
current situation, in which
beachfront owners have ar-
mored their property by au-
thority of temporary post-


Dennis permits issued by
Walton County. U.S. Fish and
Wildlife is urging the county
to file fbi endangered species
take permits in connection
with the armoriig, and other
citizens are questioning
whether their tax money
should be used in connection
with structures constructed
by private individuals to pro-
tect their property.
."What .is local
government's role and how
can the county act in this
situation?" Meadows sum-
marized.
Meadows said that she
believes a look at "all our op-
tions" is required.
She added that all the nec-
essary information should be
assembled before any deci-
sion is made.
Meadows said she antici-
pates that the BCC will take
up the matter of selecting a
facilitator within the next
few weeks in public session.


Troubled Timpoochee Trail i ..
A- .i ., d I /


By LEAH STRATMANN
Increasingly people who
regularly bicycle, rollerblade,
walk, skateboard or run on
Timpoochee Trail, the 18
mile path running along CR-
30A in South Walton County,
feel as if using the path is
more of an endurance contest
and obstacle course than an


exercise in recreation.
Dan McClary, one of the
Friends of the Timpoochee
Trail spoke to the Walton
County Commissioners on
March 14 about conditions
along the trail. He empha-
sized that the path is a multi
use path, and in Florida
there is a book of codes de-

disrepair in one section of the path.


tailing designations for a va-
riety of things. "A trail is sup-
posed to be 10-feet wide, a
path is supposed to be eight-
feet wide, and a sidewalk six-
feet wide. The path along 30A
has three sections that are
only six-feet wide, through
Paradise by the Sea there is
almost a mile that is only six-
feet wide," he said.
The width of the path isn't
the only problem. The path
has fallen into disrepair in
many locations and the signs
stating the rules for the path
have been removed by con-
struction companies and lay
by the side of the path. Fur-
ther, overhanging vegetation,
erratic sprinklers, 90-degree
turns in the path, and ve-
hicles parking on the path all
impede the use of the facil-
ity.
Just getting the signs in-
stalled in the first place was
an exercise in frustration ac-
cording to McClary who first
suggested some possible
wording in September of
2002. "For 10 months the


THIS TRUCK is parked in the path that is supposed to be used for bikers, runners, and
walkers. Friends of the Timpoochee Trails say sheriff's deputies neither ticket these vehicles
or ask them to move.


Walton County Tourist De-
velopment Council debated
on what the signs should look
like and what they should
say. In the end, the wording
was almost identical to what
was originally proposed," he
said. "The signs were in-


stalled in the summer of
2003 but they were installed
parallel to the path, so no one
ever saw them. Now most of
them are missing. In the Alys
Beach development the signs
were thrown into a ditch."
"We want the county to re-


pair the path, maintain it
and keep it safe. We would
like for them to pass some
sort of ordinance that would
dictate what can be done
within the 100-feet of public

Alternative breakers

help out at Eden


By DOTTYNIST
Eden Gardens State Park
recently benefited from the
efforts of eight "alternative
spring breakers" from Geor-
gia.
Rather than partying last
week for their spring break,
the eight college students
spent time doing such things
as removing harmful inva-
sive plants from Eden Gar-
dens. The group camped at
nearby Camp Helen State
Park in the evenings and re-
portedly had no problem with
there being no night club
nearby or even a TV in sight.
Dan Blanner, park man-
ager for both parks, said this
is the third year that the al-
ternative spring breakers
from Georgia have volun-
teered to assist in these area


parks. They are assigned dif-
ferent projects each year, he
explained.
Donna Talbott, a part-time
OPS employee and park vol-
unteer at Edens Gardens,
commented that in addition
to removing some non-native
bamboo and other invasive
plants in the park the stu-
dents helpedbuild a bridge
over some low-lying areas.
Pam Watkins, sales man-
ager for the South Walton
Tourist Development Council
(TDC), said that when she
learned of the group's efforts,
she assembled and delivered
gift bags to them to convey
the TDC's appreciation.
The alternative spring
breakers have now returned
home but plan to return for
spring break 2007.

A Walton County business-
man and conservationist was
named the 2006 "Unsung
Hero" at the Public Interest
Environmental Conference in
Gainesville earlier in March.
M.C. Davis, of Santa Rosa
Beach, in South Walton
County, was honored with the
award, which is presented
annually by students of the
University of Florida's Levin
College of Law, at a ceremony
on Mar. 10.
"Time and time again, our'
Unsung Hero (Davis) has
chosen conservation over
money and hard work over
inaction. He has continually
taken the road less traveled,"
said Dustin Dailey, a third-
year law student who pre-
sented the award.
Davis' contributions to con-
servation included the cre-
ation of Nokuse Plantation, a
55,000-acre nature preserve
in central Walton County
near Freeport in the works
since 2002.
Over the past five months,
Davis negotiated the sale of
conservation easements on
over 18,000 acres of Nokuse
Plantation land to the state
of Florida at prices far below
market value. These lands
have become part of the
Northwest Florida Greenway,


a conservation corridor that
runs from Northwest Florida
to the Big Bend, connecting
millions of acres of military
reservations, water manage-
ment district lands, and state
and national forests.
In March, Walton County
agreed to relocate 50 gopher
tortoises from the new county
jail site in DeFuniak Springs
to Nokuse Plantation. Go-
pher tortoises are classified
as a "species of special con-
cern" by the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission, which means that
special care is needed to pre-
vent the species from becom-
ing threatened or endan-
gered. Davis' Nokuse Plan-
tation offers a unique alter-
native to "incidental take," or
loss of environmentally sen-
sitive habitant and species to
development. The county
could have paid $175,000 for
a state incidental take permit
that allowed for the destruc-
tion of the tortoises. Instead,
it agreed to pay $17,000 to re-
locate them, Davis hopes to
launch a tortoise preserva-
tion program, with Nokuse
Plantation as a state ap-
proved site to which to relo-
cated the species.
Other notable projects ini-
tiated by Davis are Mallory

Davis was named "Wildlife
Conservationist of the Year"
in 2004 by the Florida Wild-
life Federation. He received
the "Blazing Star Award"
from Green Horizon Land
Trust in 2002. He has served
as speaker for many conser-
vation functions in Florida.
In fact, he was a featured
panelist at a discussion en-
titled "The Choctawhatchee
Miracle: An Uncommon Ap-
proach to Protecting a River
Basin" at the PIEC. The
panel discussion focused on
forming informal alliances
between government, public,
and private interests to pro-
tect an environmentally criti-
cal river system threatened


by development, as he did in
the creation of Nokuse Plan-
tation.
The PIEC was kicked off
with a presentation by na-
tionally known environmen-
tal advocate Robert Kennedy
Jr. on Mar. 8. Philippe
Cousteau, the grandson of
Jacques Cousteau, served as
keynote speaker at a banquet
on Mar. 10.
"It has been a absolute
pleasure working together
with Mr. Davis. He and his
work are vital to the long-
term future of Walton
County," said Scott Brannon,
county commissioner for Dis-
trict 1.
Each year, University of
Florida law students name an
unsung hero at the PIEC.
The person is someone "who
has worked behind the scenes
and who has gone above and
beyond the call of duty topro-
tect the environment," Dailey
said.

Aerators:



Go with the Flow

Do you have a faucet that blasts out a

huge stream of water?

If it doesn't have an aerator tip,

you're wasting money.



Aerators are a simple and inexpensive way to save
* money on your water bill. These little devices
screw onto the business end of your faucet.
They save you money by mixing air with the
water, creating a flow that is still forceful but that
uses far fewer gallons per minute.

How much difference does it make?

When washing hands, doing dishes or anything
else other than filling something up, with an
aerator you will use 50 percent less water.
Not a bad savings for something that
costs only a couple of bucks.
So check your kitchen sink, bathroom

lavatories, laundry tubs, and bar sinks.
If they don't have aerators. put one on.

You ill save dough

by cutting the flow.
