DeFuniak Springs


to provide water to


new county jail


by Leigh Strickland
Work can now begin on the utili-
ties for the new Walton County Jail,
as DeFuniak Springs City Council
has chosen an engineering firm for
the project.
At Monday night's City Council
meeting, evaluations of the differ-
ent firms bidding on the job were
S reviewed and the city began nego--
tiations with the firm having the
highest evaluation, Peters Munici-
pal Associates.
Representing that firm, Charles
Peters spoke before the council and
outlined their services and the fee
curve for the project.
The running of a new sewer line
was discussed, the location and size
of the line being of issue.
City Manager Kim Presnell said
that the county has no problem
with moving the line to Hwy. 83N
from Landfill Road. The only added
cost to the city will be if the size of
the line is increased.
Peters said that the project's
timeline leaves six to seven weeks
for design and about four months
for construction. The deadline for
completion of the utilities to the jail
site is November 1.
A motion to approve Peters' pro-
posal and to hire Peters Municipal
Associates was passed unani-
mously.
Concerns about the time frame
of the project were voiced by City
Attorney Clayton Adkinson.
Language in the agreement be-
tween the city and the county re-
quires the project to be completed
by November 1, but allows no lee-
way if contractors hired by the city
cause the project to go beyond that
date.
A motion to 'reword the agree-
ment and to reconsider it at the
next meeting was approved.
New economic development di-
rector Bob Smith was introduced.
Smith said his job is to market
the county, a large part of that be-
ing the city of DeFuniak Springs.
He expressed pleasure at being
here and said that economic devel-
opment involves the whole commu-
nity.
A resident of DeFuniak Springs,
Smith was also chosen to represent
the community on the U.S. 331 Ad-
vocacy Committee. A citizen from
each city in Walton County is to be


chosen for this committee which
will tackle issues that face the
whole county, such as widening the
highway.
Funds will be taken from the
city's sewer depreciation account to
repair a collapsed section of sewer
line, about 500 feet in length, in the
area around 2nd Street, 3rd Street,
and Toledo Avenue. This will cost
just under $90,000. Funds will be
added back to the sewer deprecia-
tion account $5,000 a month until
the account again reaches one mil-
lion dollars, required by ordinance.
Annexation by the city of a prop-
erty north of Magnolia Lakes on
Hwy. 83N was discussed. This prop-
erty, about 120 acres, connects to
current city limits. A motion to have
a first reading and to advertise an
ordinance of annexation was ap-
proved, 5-0.
An agreement by the city to pro-
vide fire services to Walton Correc-
tional Institute, which is outside
city limits, was approved. It was
also extended from one year to five
years, so the agreement doesn't
have to be revisited every year.
Language changes in the project
description of an agreement be-
tween the Florida Department of
TranSportation and the city of De-
Funiak for resurfacing work at the
airport were approved.
A budget amendment for the
Monarch Aviation Project was ap-
proved.

In her city manager's report,
Presnell mentioned the skateboard
park on Gene Hurley Road being
out of service. All pieces of equip-
ment at the park were damaged.
Some were discarded, but others
are being repaired and relocated to
Harbeson Field.
During closing comments, Coun-
cilman James Coffield spoke of his
visit to a senior center in Geneva.
He reminded everyone about
Thursday's meeting at the College
Avenue Complex, where a senior
center for DeFuniak will be dis-
cussed.
Improvements to DeFuniak
Springs are often measured in
terms of commercial and residen.-
tial growth. While this is not wrong,
improvements can also be seen in
adding to, repairing, and promoting
existing facets of the city.

by Bruce Collier
The court has dismissed an
amended complaint as to all but one
plaintiff in Hutchins v. First Bap-
tist Church of DeFuniak Springs.
That plaintiff may proceed with
the action, but must establish a
specificc injury" in order to prevail.
The.original action was filed in
2005. Ten plaintiffs, residents of the
historical district of DeFuniak
Springs, sought injunctive relief
and damages from First Baptist for
the removal of an historic struc-'
ture on the corner of Live Oak and
Crescent Avenues.
The church demolished the
structure, which was already in a
state of disrepair, to construct a


parking lot.
In February of this year, the
court dismissed the original com-
plaint, giving the plaintiffs leave to
file an amended complaint.
The plaintiffs' amended com-
plaint was filed, and the defendant
filed a motion to dismiss the
amended complaint.
The court granted that motion,
without a hearing, as to all plain-
tiffs except Harley Henderson.
The survival of the action as to
Henderson goes to the reason the
court dismissed the original com-
plaint, as well as the amended com-
plaint.
The plaintiffs originally sued
under a Florida statute that the


Endangered runaway from Cedar Grove may be in area
by Bruce Collier
A 16-year-old Cedar Grove youth, classed as an "endangered runaway," may be
in the DeFuniak Springs area.
Cedar Grove Police Department (CGPD) is working with the assistance of the
DeFuniak Springs Police to locate Ian Siders. Siders has been missing since March
1 of this year, having left his father's house in Cedar Grove.
CGPD Lt. Vern Snell said that Siders' father has been in the area posting flyers
with a picture of his son. Ian's photo and description are also posted on the Internet,
at www.missingkids.com.
According to Snell, Ian's father posted a flyer in a local store, and observed a
person tear down the flyer and leave the store.
The father reportedly recognized the person as Ian's cousin.
4",Snell believes that Ian is with his cousin, According to Snell, the cousin has
retained a lawyer, and has not yet provided any information to the investigators.
Ian Siders is described as a white male, 16 years old, 230 pounds, 5 feet 11
inches tall, with green eyes. At the time of his disappearance, Ian had long, light
brown hair.
Ian also has several scars on his right ankle. The poster suggests that he may
have left the state, but Snell believes that he is in the area, probably with his
cousin.
Officer Derek Walters of the DeFuniak Springs Police department, is the officer
on the case in this area.
Walters reiterated that Ian is considered an "endangered runaway."
The telephone number of the Cedar Grove Police Department is 850-747-0209.
The DeFuniak Springs Police Department number is 892-8511.

DSPD collects

signatures in

support of

adding traffic

light
In an ongoing effort to address
public safety, the DeFuniak Springs
Police Department is collecting sig-
natures in support of adding a traf-
fic light at U.S. 331 South and
Bruce Avenue, as well as U.S. Hwy.
90 and 20th Street.
Both of these intersections have
proven to be dangerous to motor-
ists over the last five years. The
petition is needed to highlight the
concerns that citizens have over
this issue.
Both of these areas are a primary
route for Walton County School bus
traffic.
The public is urged to support
by signing the petition. Once the pe-
tition drive is completed the city
marshal will present them to the
Florida Department ofTransporta-
tion in support of his previous re-
quests for traffic lights at those lo-
cations.
The petition list can be found at
the city marshal's office located at
355 U.S. Hwy. 90 West.


court found did not give them
standing to sue.
For the amended complaint to
survive another motion to dismiss,
the plaintiffs had to state an ac-
tion at common law.
Such an action requires a show-
ing of "special damages," rather
than an allegation of damage to the
community as a whole.
The defendant's motion to dis-
miss the amended complaint
spends seven pages arguing against
any specific injury to any plaintff.
The motion further characterizes
the plaintiffs' plea that the church
tear up the parking lot and recon-
struct the demolished building as
"asking the court to do the impos-
sible."
The court dismissed the com-
plaint on March 22. Michael Dickey,
attorney for First Baptist, said that
his office would be investigating the
location of Henderson's house, in an
effort to determine what, if any,
special damages can be found.
The amended complaint alleges
that Henderson's "ability to free use
and enjoy-
ment" of his property has suf-fered
because the parking lot is "un-
sightly," that he has suffered from
increase in vehicular and pedes-
trian traffic, noise, and exhaust
fumes, and that he has lost a "wind
buffer" by removal of the structure.
In dismissing the amended com-
plaint, the court did not specify that
the dismissal was "with prejudice."
This may leave open the possi-
bility of yet another amended com-
plaint, subject to the statutes on
prescription of actions.
Lorriane Bytell, attorney for the
plaintiffs, declined to comment spe-
cifically on her next step, but did
say that she would be meeting with
her clients to discuss options.

Padgett appointed local

chair of Davis campaign


THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MARCH 30, 2006


After becoming the first
candidate for governor to visit
every county in Florida,
Democrat Jim Davis an-
nounced he has appointed
county chairs in each of the
state's 67 counties. In Wal-
ton County, Davis tapped Ray
Padgett to spearhead his lo-
cal organizing efforts.
"I am honored that Ray has
agreed to donate his talent to
build our campaign organiza-
tion in Walton County. It's
because of the commitment
and hard work of people like
Ray that we'll win this race
and bring the kind of change
that's desperately needed in


Tallahassee," said Jim Davis.
"When I launched my cam-
paign, I set a goal of visiting
every county because I want
to be a governor for all Flo-
ridians," said Davis. "I've
met and talked with voters all
across Florida. From rural
counties to urban counties,
from small counties to large,
Floridians want a governor
who will listen to them and
respect them. I will be that
governor."
Two weeks ago a town hall
meeting, Davis unveiled his
vision for keeping Florida's
promise to children, seniors,
families, and communities.


Among his ideas, Davis pro-
posed investing $1 billion
from this year's budget sur-
plus to create a teacher en-
dowment fund that would
give Florida's teachers a per-
manent salary increase.
Davis also discussed his
specific ideas for overhauling
the FCAT, reducing the cost
of prescription drugs, helping
small business afford health
insurance for their employ-
ees, and bringing broadband
Internet to every community.

Construction crew unearths
century old Spanish ship in Pensacola


By BRUCE COLLIER
A Navy construction crew
performing hurricane dam-
age work unearthed a Span-
ish ship last week. The ves-
sel is buried in an estimated
75 feet of sand on the site of
Pensacola's Naval Air Sta-
tion.
Crews were rebuilding the
base's swim rescue unit,
which had been damaged in
2004 by Hurricane Ivan,


when they discovered the
keel.
Archeologists from the Ar-
cheology Institute of the Uni-
versity of West Florida have
been doing preliminary work
to determine the ship's age
and origin. So far, they have
found jars, ceramic tiles, and
rope.
The first Spanish settle-
ment in the Pensacola area
was established in 1559. The


ship could date back to that
time, but iron bolts found in
the structure would tend to
indicate a later period.
Archeology Institute direc-
tor Elizabeth Benchley said
that lack of funding will prob-
ably prevent excavation of
the.entire ship.
In the meantime, the Navy
has secured the site and will
continue construction work in
another area.

Local couple warns of telephone lottery scam


By BRUCE COLLIER
A local couple is warning
of a telephone scam, appar-
ently based in Canada, that
cost them over $5,000.
The couple, who asked to
remain anonymous, received
a telephone call in mid-
March. The call was made to
the wife, who was informed
that she had won $2,500,000
in a lottery.


Several days later, they
were asked to wire $2,500,
and another $2,500 several
days later. The couple was
told that the funds were to
cover "costs" associated with
processing the winnings. The
couple wired the funds.
Shortly after that, they
were contacted by a person
representing himself as an


IRS agent, who demanded
that they wire $20,000 for
"taxes" on the winnings.
The alleged agent gave a
name and an identification
number, and threatened legal
action if the money was not


sent. The couple did not send
the money.
Instead, the wife wrote out
an account of what had hap-
pened, and contacted the FBI
office in Shalimar. The FBI is
investigating the scam.


The couple does not have
much hope of retrieving the
$5,000 wired out of the coun-
try, but warns others in the
area to beware of similar
scams.
Such schemes have be-


come prevalent, both by tele-
phone and Internet. In addi-
tion to defrauding people of
money, the scams open the
door to identity theft using
information obtained from
victims.

By BRUCE COLLIER
Local actor, writer and ra-
dio personality Don Goodrum
began shooting the trailer for
his first film, titled Looking
for Garth Brooks, last week-
end. Goodrum is shooting lo-
cally, using area crew and ac-


tors.
The film is based on an
original screenplay, written
by Goodrum.
"The story is set in small
town in Arkansas, but I was
able to find everything I
needed right here for loca-


tions, actors, and crew," said
Goodrum.
He added, "The budget is
small, so fortunately, the crew
and actors have volunteered
their time and services for
this project."
Goodrum hopes to enter


the completed film in the In-
dependent Film Market fes-
tival in New York, in Septem-
ber of 2006.
A film website is under
construction. When complete,
the address will be

SI LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


PERSONAL COMMENTS


The courageous man


In the interest of safety, I feel that I should warn you
that it might be best if you sat down before reading any
more of this.
The reason is because I am about to do something I never
thought I would have occasion to do and I fear the shock to
those who know me well might be more than they can stand
without advance warning.
I am about to praise the 43rd President of the United
States. That's right, you heard me correctly. I'm about to
praise George W. Bush.
See, aren't you glad you sat down?
The truth is that credit must always be given whenever
and wherever credit is due and President Bush deserves
praise for the courage he has shown over the last six months.
At various times during these last few months, President
Bush has had the courage to publicly acknowledge that the
American military strategy and approach to the war in Iraq
has been ineffective, especially in the Sunni triangle. He
has acknowledged the trouble the U.S. has had in training
Iraqi military forces and has admitted that widespread cor-
ruption exists in the quasi-democratic Iraq.
The president has gone as far as to acknowledge the folly
of giving huge reconstruction no-bid contracts to corpora-
tions like Halliburton and others.
He has, on more than one occasion, admitted that there
were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and has stated
that the intelligence reports that served as the basis for his
decision to launch a pre-emptive attack in Iraq were wrong.
These are no small concessions, especially when one con-
siders the long years this administration has displayed a
dogged refusal to acknowledge that critical mistakes have
been made regarding Iraq.
To stand up and take some measure of responsibility for
mistakes that continue to take American lives is an amaz-
ing act of courage and President Bush should be praised for
showing the intestinal fortitude required to do such a thing.
This is an important first step. The question is now what?

Editor:
We were upset to hear that mail for one of your readers
was forwarded, without his knowledge, to an address out-
side the area. We take these matters very seriously and you
should know that the matter is now being dealt with at a
much higher level.
Your readers should also know that there are protections
in place to stop change-of-address fraud at the source. For
example, those who file a change-of-address online, or with
our call center, are required to provide a valid credit card.
The name and address for this card must match'
the information in the change-of-address order. If there is
no match, the change order is not processed.
Also, as a further precaution, we deliver a letter to the
original address, which provides an opportunity for the cus-"
tomer to notify us should the pending change-of-address be
invalid.
For the record, we do not accept change-of-address orders
via email. Your reader was mistaken on this point.
Identity theft is one of the fastest growing forms of crime
in the world. However, there are things your readers can do

EDITOR'S COMMENT

ByRONKELLEY


Where do we go from here? Most military officials agree
that the U.S. is not going to win this war militarily and that
most Americans will not recognize the Iraqi version of de-
mocracy, when and if it truly comes.
Of course, not all is gloom and despair. Gen. Wesley Clark
has noted that there has been some limited success in the
reconstruction of the cities of Mosul and Najaf. The prob-
lem, of course, is how to duplicate those small successes in
other, more violent parts of Iraq. Gen. Clark chastised Presi-
dent Bush for not telling Americans "how many more teams
need to go into these communities or what it will cost us."
With the cost of the war in the hundreds of billions and
still rising and a military budget larger than the GNP of
many countries, the president should also acknowledge that
American military forces are not going to be able to solve a
thousand years of violent conflict and political unrest in the
Middle East. It would be wonderful if someone could come
up with a realistic plan for laying the foundations for a demo-
cratic government in a country ruled by intolerant religious
hard-liners. Failing that, we need to figure out how to cease
occupying that foreign country now that such occupation is
beginning to cause the very people we sought to liberate to
resent our presence.
We must be prepared to accept that there may not be a
happy ending to this war, despite the shameful ABC News
decision to bow to public demands to try to make the war
seem more uplifting and positive.
There is nothing warm and fuzzy about war. It is vicious
and evil, a thing to be avoided, always the last resort and
never the first.
Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld said, "Death has
a tendency to encourage a depressing view of war" but I
submit that Americans have been deliberately encouraged
to believe that "winning" the war in Iraq, or at least declar-



Editor,
Recently I noticed yet another of the many improvements
that have taken place in our local newspaper. I refer to the
addition of a crossword puzzle. Having been an ardent cross-
word fan for most of my life, this was most welcome. Even
better, the puzzles are sufficiently challenging, unlike some
of those appearing in some other publications. Thank you!
Adding a puzzle may seem a small thing, but together
with the many changes, small and large, that have been
made over the past couple ofyears, a newspaper has emerged
that certainly rates right up there with the best of weeklies
in the country. Keep up the good work!

Editor,
I have joined the advocacy group of The American Cancer
Society to ask our legislators to support the proposed legis-
lation that would allocate $9 million to the Bankhead-Coley
Cancer Research Program through the Florida Department
of Health to help advance Florida's fight against cancer
through research and treatment. This means there would
be increased access to cutting-edge cancer care for patients
throughout our state.
As a cancer survivor, this bill is very important to me. I
hope my family and friends never have to hear the words
"You have cancer." By supporting this bill, we will have hope
for tomorrow through the development of new and success-
ful treatments.
I met with Representative Don Brown in Tallahassee on
Advocacy Day in February. He was very receptive to The
American Cancer Society support of this bill. We must con-
tinue to fight to find a cure for cancer, a disease that touches
everyone in their lifetime.

Editor,
This week on Thursday, March 30, a panel of senior center
administrators will assemble in DeFuniak Springs to dis-
cuss how a facility for elder citizens provides vital services,
entertainment, and recreation in the golden years. The panel
is coming to town at the invitation of the College Avenue
Complex Committee who has been tasked to develop a plan
to operate the government complex as a senior center.
Panel members are Sheila Salyer, director of the Talla-
hassee Senior Center; Jackie Fleming, director of the Cre-
ative Senior Center in Fort Walton Beach, and Scott Brown,
recreation supervisor from' the Bayview Senior Center in
Pensacola.
Using a state-wide study,by the Department of Elder Af-
fairs and with information obtained through committee visi-
tations to eight senior centers in south Alabama and the
Panhandle, committee members will have a lot of questions
for the panel. This is an open public workshop and ques-
tions from area citizens will be most welcomed.
The committee was formed by the Walton County Com-
mission to study and make recommendations on the use of
the government complex on College Avenue by senior citi-
zens for recreation purposes. The nine members of the com-
mittee include elected and appointed staff from both the city
of DeFuniak Springs and the county as well as volunteer
citizens. The three properties at the location and the com-
plex building have been recommended to house recreation
and life enrichment opportunities for seniors.
Committee government members are: Kenneth Pridgen,
Ken Little, Sara Comander, and James Coffield. The citi-
zens are Alex Alexander, Marvin Campbell, Mary Lind
Devlin, J. B. Hillard, and Pat Huffman.
The elder population is growing as retirees have found
central Walton County a great place to live. Census record
for the city of DeFuniak Springs show seniors age 65 and
older reside in over 34 percent of the households. The elder
population continues to increase in the nation as a whole
and no doubt the same is occurring in Walton County.
All citizens, social organizations, businesses, and agencies
that have an interest in the elder population are invited to
attend the public workshop- at the county extension office
by the fair grounds, March 30, 2006 at 10 a.m.
J. B. Hillard
Chairman, College Avenue Complex Committee
DeFuniak Springs


ing ourselves to be the winners, will somehow bring peace
to the Middle East and make us safe.
Unfortunately, President Dwight D. Eisenhower, a war
general, had a more realistic view. He said, "We will bank-
rupt ourselves in the vain search for absolute security."
I appreciate President Bush's courage in admitting that
serious mistakes have been made. Now I would welcome
his honest plans for a workable solution to our Middle East
crisis and practical plans on how to address the very real
and pressing problems we face right here at home.
That will require a courageous man, indeed.




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.

Gallagher announces $8

million in restitution


Tom Gallagher, Florida's
chief financial officer, an-
nounced that his department,
as part of a multi-state coali-
tion, has entered into a settle-
ment with Zurich American
Insurance Company in re-
sponse to bid-rigging and
price-fixing allegations.
Florida victims- businesses,
non-profit organizations and
governmental entities- will
receive nearly $8 million un-
der the settlement.

"Bid-rigging and 'pay-to-
play' schemes will not be tol-
erated in Florida," said
Gallagher, who oversees the
Florida Department of Finan-
cial Services. "Insurance com-
panies and brokers will not
get away with deceiving cus-
tomers, inflating prices and
corrupting the insurance
marketplace."
Zurich allegedly paid un-
disclosed contingent commis-
sions to insurance brokers
and conspired with certain
insurance brokers in a "pay-
to-play" scheme to overcharge
customers for commercial in-
surance policies. In addition,
Zurich allegedly submitted
fake bids in order to create
the illusion of a competitive
'bidding process, when in fact
the broker had pre-desig-


nated another insurer as the
winner at an inflated price.
Zurich was allegedly re-
(warded for submitting fake
quotes by receiving protection
from competition on other lu-
crative accounts.
The multi-state coalition
did an extensive investiga-
tion of Zurich's conduct.
Zurich is one of the first in-
surance companies to agree
to reimburse customers, dis-
close future contingent com-
mission payments, and
implement conduct reforms
that change the way the com-
pany does business. The
multi-state settlement pro-
vides $171.7 million in resti-
tution to nine participating
states, including Florida.
Gallagher launched an in-
vestigation into insurance
broker activities in Nov. 2004.
His office is still investigat-
ing the conduct of other insur-
ance brokers and insurance
companies. "Insurers and
brokers that engage in unac-
ceptable conduct will be held
accountable," Gallagher said.
The settlement will be en-
forced through a judgment in
state court, as well as
through a multi-district fed-
eral action in New Jersey. It
is still subject to court ap-
proval.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MARCH 30, 2006


PdL motorcyclist killed


DEFUNIAK SPRINGS Mayor Harold Carpenter signs a proclamation recognizing April
as Sexual Assault Awareness Month, surrounded by area agency professionals Charity
Parker (L), Carolyn Hammond, Helene Bruns, Deborah Campbell, TerriAdkison and Brenda
Porter.


By BRUCE COLLIER
A motorcyclist was killed
when he hit a truck on the af-
ternoon of March 22.
The accident occurred on
S.R. 83, just north of WWII
Veterans Lane.
Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) investigator Cpl. D.M.
Stewart reported that a mo-
torcycle was traveling south
on S.R. 83.
The rider and sole occu-
pant was James Phillip
Roeting, 36, of Carnation
Road in Ponce de Leon.
A truck was stopped in the
southbound lane of S.R. 83,
at a construction site.
The driver of the truck was
Larry W. McClung, 37, of
Waynell Circle in Fort Walton
Beach. Also in the truck was
James Ballard, 34, also of
Fort Walton Beach.
According to the FHP re-
port, Roeting "failed to slow


until the last moment," then
braked, skidded 24 feet, and
struck the left rear of the
truck.
Roeting was ejected from
his motorcycle, and came to
rest in the northbound lane.
A motorist in the area,
Dana Thompson, got out of
her car and approached
Roeting. Thompson is a dis-
abled registered nurse, cur-
rently on inactive status.
Thompson said that she
saw that Roeting was still
breathing, and began to ad-
minister mouth-to-mouth re-
suscitation.
Thompson said that while
she was doing this, two men
approached her and told her


they were emergency medi-
cal or fire rescue personnel.
According to Thompson,
both declined to assist with
mouth-to-mouth because
they did not have masks for
the procedure.
Walton County Emergency
Medical Services eventually
arrived, and transported
Roeting to Healthmark Hos-
pital, where he died.
Neither McClung nor
Ballard were injured.
Neither occupant of the
truck was under the influence
of drugs or alcohol. It is un-
known whether Roeting was
under the influence.
According to the report, all
persons involved were wear-
ing seatbelts. Roeting was
wearing a helmet.
No charges are pending.

Stars like Hugh O'Brien, Lou Ferrigno,
Ernest Borgnine and Mickey Rooney
aren't the only ones who use Audibel
Hearing aids.
Everyday locals like Fred Shepard use
them too.
Shepard,' who's only 35, started losing
his hearing approximately five years ago.
A visit to the doctor gave him two
options: Get a hearing aid and possibly
intensify the ringing in his ear or go
without.
Shepard chose not to waste his money
and go with the latter.
He said that time in his life was an
unpleasant one.
"Back then I couldn't hear the dog
whining or the door squeaking," Shepard
recalls. "I wouldn't even go to restau-
rants because of all the background
noise. I couldn't hear a conversation


across the table."
After years of frustration, Shepard
finally gave in and had his girlfriend,
Jama, make a call to Bobby Nowell, cer-
tified hearing instrument specialist and
owner/operator of Audibel Hearing Aid
Center in Destin.
Shepard took Jama to his appointment
and said he was very curious about what
Nowell could do for him.
Nowell said bringing Jama along was a
smart move.
"It's very important to have the spouse
or significant other present," Nowell
explained. "They help to find out what's
missing during the examination process."
The results were tremendous.
Shepard said his Audibel hearing aid
has brought back a normalcy that has
been missing for years.
"The Emerald Coast is all about a bet-


ter quality of life. Audibel has improved
my quality of life," Shepard insists. "I
invite anyone who has questions about
my Audibel hearing aid to give me a
call."
Jama said, "It's nice to listen to the
television at a normal level."
Main clinic located at Destin with a
service center located at the Medicine
Shoppe in DeFuniak and The
Prescription Shoppe in Crestview.
Audibel Hearing Aid Center offers the
finest in American-made hearing instru-
ment technology on the planet.
Whether it's the affordable Audibel
Custom Series ITE Full Shell for those
with mild to moderate hearing loss or the
virtually invisible, top-of-the-line
Audibel Eclipse Digital, Audibel has a
hearing aid to fit everyone's needs.
Also, the cost of all Audibel hearing


Centers For

Hearing

Excellence



aids include the office visit and lifetime
in house service.
Figuring out your hearing needs is as
easy as stepping into Nowell's office and
getting your hearing tested. He will use
the latest technology to let you know if
it's just a little wax build-up or if your
need for a hearing aid is genuine.
In addition to selling hearing aids.
Nowell can clean, program and service
all Audibel products he sells and many
other non-Audibel hearing aids.
Once a month. Nowell even uses his
skills and equipment to work on the hear-
ing aids of the residents of Crystal Bay
for free.
Come see why Nowell says. "No one
beats our quality. No one beats our
prices. No one!"

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MARCH 30, 2006


OW trustees approve new programs at Niceville campus


Four major new degree
programs, a new series of
popular Broadway shows for
the The Arts Center, and po-
tential inclusion of the
county health department in
a new facility on the Niceville
campus were all approved by
the Okaloosa-Walton College
District Board of Trustees at
the board's regularly sched-
uled March 21 meeting at the
Niceville campus.
Trustees approved new de-
gree programs in emergency
administration and manage-
ment, radiography technol-
ogy, and emergency medical
services and a certificate pro-
gram in paramedic, all to be-
gin in the Fall term.
The emergency adminis-
tration degree was described
by Dr. Jill White, OWC senior
vice president, as "actually
four distinct degrees in and
of itself' because it will offer
specialization areas in fire
science, homeland security,
criminal justice and emer-
gency administration. "This
program's curriculum will
include competencies defined
through FEMA at the na-
tional level," said White.
"The fire science area will
meet the Florida Fire College
requirements for certifica-
tion as a level one
firefighter."
"This is a major expansion
of educational programs at
OWC into vitally needed


health and emergency man-
agement areas," noted Dr.
Bob Richburg, OWC presi-
dent. "We constantly work to
change and grow with our
community and these new
degrees are an example of
that partnership." He noted
that the emergency medical
services and paramedic pro-
grams will begin initially as
career ladder programs for
those who currently hold an
EMT certificate or current
firefighters who need to up-
grade to paramedic. Radiog-
raphy and the emergency
administration degrees will
accept qualified new stu-
dents from any background.

Trustees also approved a
preliminary slate of shows
for the 2006-07 season at The
Arts Center to include Broad-
way series shows Jesus
Christ Superstar, Hairspray,
Little Shop of Horrors and
Urban Cowboy,, as well as
artist series shows.Scottish
Christmas, Cirque Dreams,
Ben Vereen, Don Giovanni
and Bruce Wood Dance..
A series of children's
shows with matinee shows
for area school children in-
cludes Harry the Dirty Dog,

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MARCH 30, 2006


The rose, America's flower


Written Dara Dobson, -
Walton County Master
Gardener
The rose was officially pro-
claimed America's national
flower in 1986. Roses are
undoubtedly one of the oldest
and best loved flowers around
the world. It is the most
widely planted shrub in the
south and all other parts of
the world with temperate cli-
mates.
Most roses are deciduous,
losing their leaves in the win-
ter, but in mild winters they
can also be evergreen.
Centuries of hybridizing
have produced a wide variety
of forms and colors. There are
miniatures only one foot high
to huge tree smothering
climbers. The flowers vary
from tiny thumbnail blooms
to giant blossoms the size of
a dinner plate. While red,
pink and white are the tradi-
tional colors, growers can
now find yellows, oranges,
purples and blues and hun-
dreds of shades in between.
Rose fragrances are as varied
as their colors.
Some have the traditional
sweet "rose" perfume, but
others can smell fruity, spicy,
honeylike or have no fra-
grance at all.
The rose is older than the
human hands that first drew
pictures of it. Forty million
years ago, a rose left its im-
print on a slate deposit in a
Colorado fossil bed. Fossils
of roses have been found in
Oregon and Montana that
date back 35'million years.
Fossils have also been found
in Germany and Yugoslavia.
Roses grow as far north as
Norway and as far south as
Mexico and North Africa, but
no wild roses have ever been
found to grow below the equa-
tor.
About 500 B.C., Confucuis
wrote about roses growing in
the Imperial Gardens of the
m:=- aummmarwimmm um


Han dynasty (207 B.C. A.D.
220). The oldest rose we can
identify today is Rosa gallica,
which once bloomed wild
throughout central and
southern Europe and western
Asia and still survives there.
Through centuries of hy-
bridizing thousands of roses
have been developed. Many
of the newer roses require
higher maintenance and at-
tention to thrive. Antique
(old garden roses or heritage
roses) are hardy even under
the poorest of conditions.
They have survived the test
of time, often growing and
thriving at old abandoned
sites. However, they will also
thrive if planted in rich, well-
drained soil provided they
have at least six hours of di-
rect sun and good air circula-
tion.
When ordering roses from
catalogs, one must place or-
ders early in order to reserve
choices while they are still in
stock. The companies will
hold the order and ship at the
appropriate planting time for
each climate zone. In this
area of Florida, early Febru-
ary is the accepted planting
time for bareroot roses. Con-
tainerized roses can be
planted in the spring or fall
since their roots are already
established.
Roses prefer a soil of PH of
6.5 but antique roses will tol-
erate soils that are slightly
alkaline with a reading of 7
to 8 or more acidic down to 5,
working decomposed organic
material into the soil is the
very best way of insuring a
healthy rose. Mulch is also
very vital, a thick layer
around the rose will cool the
roots and also keep weeds
down. Old roses that have
survived through the years
are usually drought tolerant
once established. It usually
takes at least two years of
weekly watering to get the


rose established enough to
become drought tolerant.
Deep watering will promote
a better root system. Light
sprinkling only encourages
roots to grow near the surface
where they are more vulner-
able.

Antique roses do not like to
be over fertilized so it is. im-
portant to read the directions
before using the product.
Slow release fertilizers give
good results if the directions
are followed. If given enough
sun, black spot is not a major
problem with antique roses.
Insect control is usually not
necessary if the plant is
healthy. If needed, insecti-
cidal soap is the best choice


for these roses. Roses love to
be planted with alliums: on-
ions, garlic and chives, which
improve their scent and repel
pests.
The DeFuniak Springs
Garden Club is sponsoring a
free program on antique
roses, Wednesday, Apr. 5 at 11
a.m. at the DeFuniak Springs
Community Center. The
guest speaker will be Linda
Hertz form Orange Park, FL.
She is an antique rose spe-
cialist. An optional buffet
lunch will be provided and
there will be a large variety
of antique roses for sale after
the program.

By BRUCE COLLIER
Thrift-Way Supermarket
marked its 50th year in busi-
ness with a breakfast cel-
ebration, held at the DeFu-
niak Springs Civic Center on
March 18.
Guests included store ven-
dors and employees, past and
present. Visitors came from
over 100 miles away.
Owner J.W. Adkison pre-
sided, working the crowd and
greeting old friends. Adkison
said he had chairs for 200
guests. Most of the chairs
were full.
The celebration began at 7
a.m., with guests and their
families lining up for a buf-
fet breakfast.
In addition to employees
and vendors, clerk of court
Martha Ingle, and former
U.S. Representative Earl
Hutto and his wife were on
hand. Hutto spoke briefly
before joining the other din-
ers.
Also in attendance were
John Neel, whose father
opened the original IGAmar-
ket in 1956. Neel, who now
lives in Sarasota, said that he
worked at the IGA when he
was a student.
In 1959, the IGA was re-
named the Scotch Super
Market. In 1962, the store
became a Jitney Jungle, and
finally a Thrift-Way in 1967.
Adkison worked at the
store from its IGA years, and
eventually bought the store.
In addition to breakfast,
guests were invited to view
displays of scrapbooks, as
well as photocopies of news-
paper ads from 1956.
Among the prices from
1956 were 10-pound bags of
potatoes for 19 cents, bread
at 10 cents a loaf, oranges at
19cents for five pounds,
chuck steak for 59 cents a
pound, and pork steak for 49
cents a pound.
In those days, t-bone steak
cost an indulgent 89 cents a


pound.
The Super-Valu company
awarded Adkison a gold plate
for service. Local radio per-
sonality Art Dees intro-
duced Adkison, saying
"Thrift-Way is J.W. Adkison
and J.W: Adkison is Thrift-
Way."


Adkison spoke, thanking
his employees, past and
present. "The reason we've
been here for 50 years is you,"
he said.
Adkison reminisced about
the past, and paid tribute to
former store owner W.C.
Jones, who was present in


the audience.
"He was a great example to
me," said Adkison.
Following Adkison's
speech, invitees drew cards
from an "anniversary box,"
and could purchase items
listed on the card at the 1956
price.

eigh Living History On Display
By Leigh
Strickland
It has been said that two of the things DeFuniak Springs was built on were the lake and the railroad.
Nestled in between the two, in what was once the town's train depot, sits the Walton County Heritage Mu-
seum. Built in 1882 and expanded in 1912, as many as 4,000 people a day went through the depot. On April 30,
1971, the Gulf Wind was the last passenger train to stop there. The building then fell into disrepair and
remained that way until the city obtained it in 1999. It was then restored and now exists as a musuem to
promote history and goodwill in the area.
It is in this museum where residents of Walton County can learn about the history and culture of their **,. u -.
area. From ancient Native American artifacts found in the area to the early days of Chautauqua and beyond, y-- -
everything is covered. The lives of famous residents in the history of DeFuniak are detailed, including that of 1 q li
the first president of Chautauqua, Wallace Bruce, Governor Sydney Catts, Count Frederick DeFuniak, pilot
Jackie Cochran, and others. Railroad and agricultural tools are on display, and a video about the history and
homes of DeFuniak is shown to guests. Unique facts about the city are also presented. For example, DeFuniak
has one of only two perfectly round lakes in the world. Plans are in the works for a research center, which will .
make available to visitors documents and articles of interest. Computers will be added to this in the future.
The museum relies on support from fundraisers, grants, donations, and volunteers. Items such as
books, postcards, calendars, and videos are sold to raise funds. More people signing the guestbook means
larger grants, and locals aren't the only people interested in the treasures found inside the museum. Visitors
from as far away as Romania, Scotland, England, and Swaziland, Africa have recently signed in. Although the
museum's manager, Karen Samons, is there during the week, volunteers are needed to help on Saturdays, and
this .can be done once a month or every other month. MUSEUM VISITORS can find out more about
former Florida Governor Sydney J. Catts, once a
Admission is free. Hours are, Wednesday through Friday, 11-4 and Saturday, 1-4. For information DeFuniak Springs Baptist minister.

The DeFuniak Springs
Woman's Club has had two
interesting speakers in the
last two months.
The February meeting was
honored to have Dara Dob-
son, of the award-winning
DeFuniak Springs Garden
Club. She spoke on indig-
enous Floridian plants, and
went into great detail ex-
plaining why it is a good idea
to use plants in local land-
scapes and gardens that are
native. Native plants are
heartier and healthier in the
climate and soil making gar-
dening easier.
Even Dobson learned some-
thing that day. She hadn't re-
alized that the Woman's Club
was the mother organization
to the Garden Club. In 1945,
the garden committee had
become so large that it spun
off to become its own indepen-
dent organization. The
Woman's Club teased that the
Garden Club might need to
help "Mom" keep up her ap-
pearances in the garden.
March's meeting was full of
local color and history as life
long resident Bob Moore told
tales and stories of DeFu-
niak. In those days, the
streets were full of bustling
shoppers and horses. The
town was full of people every
day, but especially on the
weekends when the farmers


would come to town to pur-
chase supplies for the week
and the ladies shopped for
new frocks.
People worked from morn-
ing until after dark and were
happy to bring home 50 cents
for a day's labor. At one time,
there were four shoe smiths
and seven dry cleaners in De-
Funiak, he said. There were
hitching posts all over town.
There were two mail deliver-
ies each day and the train
made two stops east and two
stops west every day.
Moore himself carried the
petition to close downtown
shops early on Thursdays.
Since all the shops were open
and busy on Saturdays, clos-
ing early on Thursdays gave
the shop keepers a needed
break.
The club listened in antici-
pation of how legend had it
gold was buried around the
club house until Moore con-
cluded, he thought that was
just a trick to get the kids to
dig around in the soil. Moore
learned that his aunt had
been president of the
Woman's Club twice.
The club looks forward to
next month's speaker and in-
vites, anyone who might be
interested in joining or just
coming to listen to call Diane
at 951-1984.

CHELCO Youth Tour ends, four win trip to D.C.


Choctawhatchee Electric
Cooperative's (CHELCO)
23rd annual Youth Tour com-
petition took place March 23
at the co-op headquarters in
DeFuniak Springs with 19
students from ten area
schools participating. Follow-
ing the competition, which
consisted of individual inter-
views with three judges, four
students emerged as the
overall winners. The four will
now go to Washington, D.C.,
in June for national Youth

ville High School; Drew Tay-
lor and Samantha Carter,
South Walton High School;
and Ruthie Christie, The Col-
legiate High School, along
with alternates Jesse Spaid,
Walton High School, and
Whitney McCormick, Ponce
de Leon High School, re-
ceived high marks from the
judges. Each student was
quizzed on CHELCO facts
and the history of rural elec-
trification.
The students traveled to
Tallahassee March 15-16 as


part of Florida's Youth Tour
in the capital. While in Tal-
lahassee, they toured the
Capitol, met legislators and
participated in a Congres-
sional Insight program put
on by the National Rural
Electric Cooperative Associa-
tion (NRECA). In addition,
they learned how bills are
passed during a mock session
in the House of Representa-
tives, as well as a host of
other activities.
The four overall winners
will join a youth tour delega-
tion that numbers approxi-
mately 1,500 when they visit
Washington June 10-15.
They will visit many of
Washington's historic sites,
cruise on the Potomac River
and visit their legislators on
Capitol Hill.
The remaining students
who served as their schools'
Youth Tour representatives
were Jessica Camp, Walton
High School; Brandon
Woodard and Abby Hunter,
Freeport High School; Kylie

School; Drew Brant and


Elizabeth Wood, Crestview
High School; Kayla Adams
and Olivia Morgan, Baker
High School; Sarah Dixon

employees. Heather Hybiske,
a junior at Walton High
School and the daughter of
Safety and Training Director
Scott Hybiske, entered the
competition by writing an
essay titled "Electricity Is
it a right or a privilege?"
Through CHELCO's Youth
Tour Program, approxi-
mately 60 students have
been able to spend a week in
Washington. Also, about 400
students have visited Talla-
hassee through the program.
Youth Tour gives public

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.

WALTON COUNTY THIS MONTH
Walton County commissioners and staff had the opportunity to meet with our congressional delegation and discuss
issues of importance to Walton County while attending the National Association of Counties Legislative Conference
in Washington, D. C.
The National Association of Counties (NACo) is the only national organization that represents county governments.
It serves as a liaison with other levels of government and acts as a national advocate for counties.
More than 2000 county officials from around the country attended the conference and participated in professional
workshops and educational seminars, and heard special addresses from national leaders such as Michael Chertoff,
Secretary of the U. S. Department of Homeland Security. Other speakers included Norman Mineta, Secretary of the
U. S. Department of Transportation, Senator Gordon Smith from Oregon, and James Lee Witt, former FEMA Direc-
tor.
The workshops covered issues vital to local governments, including fighting potential reductions in federal Com-
munitv De\ elopment Block Grants I CDBG funding, emergency management and disaster preparedness program,
Scoping with methamphetamine abuse, eminent domain authority, and controlling skyrocketing healthcare costs.

The continued threat of domestic ter- :|

left the Gulf Coast in ruins ha\e dem- i
onstrated the need for increased pre-
paredness and prevention, and en-
hanced government response and re- .-

ongoing challenge.

Congressman Boyd couldn't leave the Capitol, so our delegation
met with him in the Sam Rayburn room on the hill. There are
numerous bills before Congress this year that will impact coun-
ties. Some are Medicaid reform, the Telecommunications Reform
Act, reauthorization of the Workforce Investment Act, and fund-
ing for rural utilities.


Seaside trash receptacles
were used at the conference!
No one seemed to know how
they got there, but it was good
advertising for Walton
County!


It is important we meet face to face with our elected
federal delegation have a "hands on" discussion of the
challenges Walton County 'faces. The issues that our
group kept in the forefront when they met with Con-
gressman Jeff Miller was the 4-laning of U.S. 331 and
beach nourishment.


The only time the delegation could get together as a group was at
lunch or dinner. Pictured are Kriss Titus, Dawn Moliterno, Susan
Burgess, Commissioner Brannon, Gary Mattison, Commissioner
Cuchens, Mayor Marse, David Hallman and Shirl Williams.

Standing on the sideline
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC

What on earth are you doing for heaven's sake? Can you
remember the good old days when there was more joy in
your Christian experience? If that is so, then you need to
pray through, because you are on the sidelines. Heaven is
a prepared place for'a prepared people. I am hearing from.
countless pastors that are sharing three important themes:
Getting back to preaching from God's Word, and quitting
sermonizing, preaching with conviction, and an emphasis
on prayer. You cannot preach it straight enough, because
we are living in the last hour for the church to snatch people
from hell. Why do suppose the pulpit got it's name? We are
snatching people from the pit's of hell, a godless lifestyle,
and awakening people to God's love for them:
We cannot afford to play church, fit God into our bulle-
tins, and hop from church to church. The fact remains-
you are standing on the sidelines, and missing God. Pray
through, confess up, and be reconciled to God and man.
10 a.m. Sunday morning; WZEP 705-730 Sunday a.m.
We are serious about commitment, come be with us on your
way to eternity!

Obituaries


In Memory
Charles W. Slay
April 26, 1963 to March 29, 2000

When tomorrow starts without me
When tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand,
an angel came and called my name
and said my place was ready.
I would have to leave behind all those I dearly loved.
I thought of all the yesterdays,
the good ones and the bad.
But when I walked through Heaven's gates,
I felt so much at home.
God looked down at me and said here life starts anew,
You did some things you knew you shouldn't do.
But you have been forgiven, and now at last you're free.
So won't you come and takemy,hand,
and share my life with me?', .....
So when tomorrow starts without :e,
don't think we're far apart,
for everytime you think of me,
I'm right here, in your heart.

Love and miss you,
Jackie



In Memory
Jeromey Delane Locklear
3-28-76 8-11-05



















Thirty years ago on March 28, 1976 we were
blessed with a bundle of joy from Heaven.
He was full of mischief and energy, such a
delight to watch grow and learn.
His life was taken in a blink of an eye, only
God knows the reason why.
But his memories remain and are cherished
by many. He touched a lot of lives' in his short
life and we're proud he was part of ours, even
if only for a brief time.
One brief moment and all will be as it was
before, only better, only happier and without
any pain or sorrow or tears. Many mourned
and showed their respects and thank you
cannot express the gratitude for all who came
or called and showed their love and support.
Soon we will see you again and hug your neck
again, until then love will go on and the
heartache will ease.

Love you always,
Your family and friends,
Mom, Dad, Jake and Katina and families,
Callie and children

port as the Pirates scored
seven runs in the bottom of
the sixth inning tobreak
open a close game. Jason
Stafford picked up the victory

Notes
by Patrick Casey
The University of Florida's
baseball team had a rough
weekend as South Carolina
swept three games from the
Gators to drop Florida to 17-
11 overall and 2-4 in SEC
play. Florida got hammered
21-4 in the Sunday finale in
their biggest loss since a 20-
2 pounding from Mississippi
State in 2000. The Gators
will host Vanderbilt in a
three-game series this week-
end.
The FSU baseball team
swept three games from
Duke over the weekend to up
their record to 25-2 overall
and 8-1 in the ACC. FSU will
travel to Chapel Hill to take
on North Carolina in a three-
game series this weekend.
The Okaloosa-Walton Col-
lege baseball team lost to
Tallahassee Community Col-
lege on Sunday 5-4 to drop to
27-9 overall and 5-4 in Pan-
handle Conference play. The
Raiders lost two of the three
games played in the weekend
series to the Eagles.
Though UCLA may be the
favorite to capture the na-
tional championship in men's
basketball, I like Florida.
The Gators are playing the
best team basketball and
have been dominant on the
interior in their first four
wins in the tournament.
George Mason will give the
Gators trouble, as they have
played some of the best team
basketball of any squad in
the tournament, but a
Florida-UCLA final would
thrill CBS. LSU remains a
legitimate threat with the in-
side play of Glen Davis, and
George Mason may be the
best outside shooting team
left of the four. It should be a
great weekend to watch the
Final 4 as any combination
could be matched up for the
championship game in a
tournament that has lived up
to March Madnes j!'ievery
way.
The OWC softball team
swept North Florida over the
weekend 4-0 and 3-2 to im-
prove to 32-9 on the season.
The Lady Raiders are 3-3 in
conference play and will face
Chiopla in Marianna on
Thursday.
Junior college basketball
wrapped up over the week-
end as the national tourna-
ments for the men's and
women's teams were both
played in the state of Kansas.
Tallahassee Community Col-
lege finished second on the
men's side as they fell to Ar-
kansas-Fort Smith 68-59 in
the national championship
game played in Hutchinson,
Kansas. TCC, the Panhandle
Conf6eence and state cham-
pion, finished the season
with a 31-4 mark. The
Chipola women finished
fourth in the national
women's tournament held in
Salina, Kansas. Chipola won
the first two games the squad
played before falling to
Odessa College of Texas 56-
52 in the national semifinal.
The Indians lost the 3rd
place game to Central Ari-
zona College 73-50 to finish
the season with a 31-6 record.
The Walton tennis team
fell to Pensacola High last
week 4-3 in boys competition
and 6-1 on the girls side. The
Walton boys are 5-4 while the
girls squad is 2-7 on the year.

On Wednesday, March 15,
members of the Walton and
Okaloosa County livestock
clubs joined together for an
educational presentation and
interaction with Desire
Street Academy at
Timpoochee 4H Camp. De-
sire Street Academy tempo-
rarily relocated to Camp
Timpoochee after Hurricane
Katrina struck their home-
town of New Orleans.
The livestock club mem-
bers brought some of their
animals for this event. These
included horses, sheep, a
heifer, goats, a rooster, baby


chicks, and a rabbit. Demon-
strations were conducted by
the 4H youth and their ani-
mals, after which the Desire
Street youth asked questions
and were able to interact
with the animals.
Another demonstration
was a spinning wheel with
wool from a sheep. Youth had
fun learning how wool is
spun into yarn to be used to
make many different items.
This event was a commu-
nity service project for the 4H
youth.
Anyone interested in live-
stock animals are welcome to


join the Walton County 4H
Livestock Club. Members do
not have to own a livestock
animal to join the club. There
are opportunities for all to
learn about beef, sheep,
goats, and hogs.
Upcoming events: April
12th field trip to Southern
Cattle Company and Jeffers.

Gators make history on the court


By CHUCK HINSON
With the clock ticking
down, the Florida Gators
men's team was headed for
the history books and headed
to the final four. It is the
eighth straight trip for
Florida under head coach
Billy Donovan, and despite
them failing in past years,
many say this could be the


year of the Swamp.
The excitement erupted
when the third-seeded
Gators knew they had just
brought down the last No. 1
seeded, team left in the
NCAA. They beat Villanova
75-62 and head now to play
No. 11-seeded George Mason
on Saturday in the semi-fi-
nals in Minneapolis.


Taglibue says


he is through


By CHUCK HINSON
After 16 years at the helm
of the NFL, 65-year-old Paul
Taglibue is stepping down as
the commissioner of the NFL.
It will be effective in July.
This decision comes after
he had achieved labor peace
and unprecedented revenue
through television deals and
won a place in American
football history.
Since 1989, Taglibue has
been in charge of taking the
NFL to a new whole new
level and making sure that
football is the number one
thing on people's mind on
Sunday afternoon. He suc-
ceeded Pete Rozelle, and
agreed last March to stay to
complete the TV deal and
long-term contract that had
been made with the NFL
players. *
His hard work and his
promises to the organization
finally came to life 12 days
ago, finishing the most ardu-
ous labor negotiations since
the league agreed on a free-
salary cap back in 1992. His
legacy was capped by last
month's negotiations.
The process to replace to

replace Taglibue is being
headed up by Roger Goodell,
the NFL's chief operating of-
ficer and Atlanta Falcon's
general manager Rich


McKay. Early predictions
have said that Baltimore
Ravens president Dick Cass,
or the new owner of the Dal-
las Cowboys Jerry Jones,.
Others say it is time for a
change and it would be a
positive change if a woman
or an African American
would take over, such as Sec-
retary of State Condeleeza
Rice, Amy Trask, chief execu-
tive officer of the Oakland
Raiders. As far as black
coaches and directors, Harold
Henderson, Gene Washing-
ton and Mike Haynes were
just three of the several
names mentioned as a front-
runner for the position.
Former President Bill
Clinton's name was brought
up, but many feel it would be
to much of a clash since most
of the owners are Republican.
Taglibue has encouraged
the search committee to be-
gin immediately searching for
his replacement to, avoid
lengthy problems that he
faced when he took the posi-
tion over in 1989. Owners
will begin the search for the
new commissioner starting
next week at their meeting in
Orlando.

As for Taglibue, he said he
will remain on as a consult-
ant with the NFL until 2008.

Joakim Noah led the scor-
ing drive for Florida with 21
points, 15 rebounds and five
blocks. His sophomore team-
mate, Al.Horford, added an-
other 12 poirits and 15 re-
bounds.
Point guard Taurean
Green scored 19 points for
Florida.
The young Gator team was


expected to sweep the NCAA
in 2007, once the freshmen
and sophomore classes ma-
tured, but they got there with
a year early and now must
face tough competition like
No. 2 seed UCLA and No. 4
seed LSU before they can
hold the national champion-
ship trophy.
This year's final four is also


seeing history due to the fact
since they expanded the tour-
nament to include 64 teams
in 1985, no top-seeded team
has advanced on to the final
four games.

Florida enters the final
four tournament with an im-
pressive record of 31-6.

BCC opts for 'gap free'



beach restoration project


by Dotty Nist
.With the large-scale beach
restoration project well un-
derway in western Walton
County, the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) had a tough
choice on March 27.
Brad Pickel, beach man-
agement director for the
South Walton Tourist Devel-
opment Council (TDC) re-
ported that the project is
nearing a section of
beachfront homes, located
just east of the Sand Trap
Road public beach access,
where property owners had
denied the county the needed
construction easements in
connection with the beach
nourishment project.
Before the project began,
Walton County sought con-
struction easements from
adjacent upland property


by Dotty Nist
Walton County officials
have long supported public
access to the beach, and a
March 27 decision to take a
beach access issue before the
Florida Supreme Court is the
latest instance of that policy.
Walton County contends that
a narrow strip of land ex-
tending from Blue Mountain
Road to the Gulf is a public
access; property owners at
the Sun Seekers condomini-
ums, located adjacent and to
the west of the strip, dis-
agree.
In summer 2004, Judge
William F. Stone ruled in fa-
vor of Walton County. How-
ever, a subsequent appeal by
the Sun Seekers
Homeowners Association re-
sulted in a Jan. 2006 rever-
sal of the previous trial court
decision that the public had
the right to use the ease-
ment.
When that decision was
brought to the attention of
the Walton County Board of


owners in accordance with
state requirements.
The owners of the three
properties east of the public
access were the only ones to
specifically the deny con-
struction easement requests.
In addition, an attorney rep-
resenting the property own-
ers had contacted the BCC to
state that entrance onto his
clients' property was forbid-
den for any purpose---and
that trespassing would be
reported to law enforcement
and prosecuted.
In June 2005, these prop-
erty owners participated in
an unsuccessful challenge to
the issuance of the state per-
mit for the project. In an ad-
ministrative hearing, they
argued that the restoration
would negatively impact'
their property rights and
their enjoyment of the gulf


County Commissioners
(BCC), the commissioners
directed County Attorney
David Hallman to file an ap-
peal of the Jan. 2006 decision
with the First District Court
of Appeals. However, on
March 27 Hallman reported
that the appeals court had
denied the county an appeal.
Also on March 27, the
BCC voted to direct Hallman
to seek to appeal the case to
the Florida Supreme Court.
The contested strip has
been the source of years of
conflict between community
members who wish to use it
to access the beach and ad-
jacent condominium owners
who maintain that it is pri-
vate property.
No dune walk. 'er has
ever occupied thc ,ip, but
at some point a chain link
fence and a concrete brick
wall were constructed on it.
March 31, 1987 BCC min-
utes show that on that date,
the BCC accepted the offer of
Sun Seekers developer


waters.
This week Pickel told the
commissioners that the res-
toration project, which is to
include five miles on the west
end of Walton County and
two adjacent miles in the
City of Destin, is "going ex-
tremely well," and is now
moving forward as much as
500 feet westward per day.
He estimated that the beach
nourishment would be near-
ing the Sand Trap Road area
by the end of the week.
Under consideration by
the commissioners were two
options presented by Pickel:
restore the entire beach in a
"gap free" fashion as de-
signed, or "bypass" the
homes where access had
been denied, leaving a "low-
lying area" that would be
more susceptible to future
storm impacts.


PLANS ARE for this section of beach, located just east of the Sand Trap Road public
beach access, to be restored along with adjacent areas, in accordance with a recent county
decision.


Hillary Hill to deed the strip
to the county for public use
in lieu of a five percent as-
sessment fee.
"Private, no beach access"
signs have occupied the
north end of the strip from
time to time. In 2000, Walton
County responded to urging
from the community, remov-
ing "private" signs from the
strip and putting up "county
access" signs, which kept
"disappearing."
In 2002, homeowners at
Sandcastles by the Sea, lo-
cated north of Blue Mountain
Road, complained to the
county that they were being
prevented from accessing the
beach via the strip. The
county then moved to deal
with encroachment issues
posed by the fence and wall
occupying the strip.
The county issued an or-
der for the fence and wall to
be cleared. Walton County
Code Enforcement research
revealed that the encroach-
ments had been placed by


Pickel noted that taking
the latter option could affect
not only beachfront homes
but also homes located fur-
ther north during storm
events.
County Attorney David
Hallman warned that "skip-
ping" the properties in ques-
tion could result in "a pool of
stagnant water in front of
their houses" as had hap-
pened in similar situations in
,other areas. These "pools"
have reportedly remained for
a number of months after
forming.
Pickel agreed that the re-
sulting low spot "would serve
as a funnel."
"In my personal opinion,
we'll get sued either way you
go," Hallman told the com-
missioners.
He advised that in his
opinion the county has the
inherent right as part of its
police powers to go onto pri-
vate property, despite the re-
quests for easements being
denied.
District 4 Commissioner
Ro Cuchens moved to con-
tinue with the restoration
project, including the proper-
ties under discussion. Dis-
trict 2 Commissioner Ken
Pridgen seconded, and the
motion was approved unani-
mously.
Pickel reported that, as of
this week, 19.6 percent of the
project, or 7,250 feet, has
been completed. Construc-
tion is expected to move
westward through Caribe,
Camping on the Gulf, and the
Tang-O-Mar subdivision this
week. During the week of
April 3, completion of the
area near Sand Trap Road is
projected, along with the be-
ginning of construction west
of the Crescent condo-
minium.


owners of Blue Mountain Vil-
las, another beachfront con-
dominium complex lying to
the east of the access strip.
The Blue Mountain Villas
owners agreed to remove the
wall and fence.
However, the Sun Seekers
Homeowners Association
elected to contest the order
in court. In Oct. 2003, Judge
Stone heard arguments by
attorneys representing Wal-
ton County and the
homeowners association.
In Aug. 2004, Stone ruled
against the county's argu-
ment that Hill's 1987 dedica-
tion granted the easement to
the county and the public.
The argument failed, he
noted because careful analy-
sis reveals that the strip lies
outside "the property com-
mitted to condominium own-
ership."
However, Stone revealed
that the county had obtained
"the underlying fee" or own-

JOE ELMORE SCULPTURES range in size fromlarger-
than-life to miniature. The large buffalo is sculpted from
2,000-year-old redwood and the small buffalo is sculpted from
alabaster. photo by Kris Chavez


Local folk artist


recognized


by Kris Chavez
"Joe Elmore's chainsaw
carvings are striking, reflect-
ing both the natural world
around him and the spiritual
depths within. Yet equally
extraordinary is his remark-
able determination, in spite
of many obstacles, to pursue
a life through the arts."
"Elmore's sculptures have
an earthy, yet spiritual qual-
ity. He reveres nature and is
drawn to it as a major inspi-
ration for his art."
These excerpts are from
"Just Above the Water,
Florida Folk Art," a 2006 pub-
lication by Kristin G.
Congdon and Tina
Bucuvalas. The duo spent
five years researching and
interviewing artists for their
book and selected seventy
Florida folk artists to profile.
Featured among the group
is Santa Rosa Beach's own
Joe Elmore. Joe's sculptures


are hard to miss if you drive
along Hwy 331 south of the
bridge. A large cypress tree
Indian head and .redwood
buffalo are on display in front
of his gallery, Elmore's Land-
ing.
I stopped by the gallery
one afternoon to congratu-
late Joe for being profiled in
the book and find him sand-
ing an owl he's sculpting
from .a piece of oak. When I
ask the sixty-something art-
ist what people would be sur-
prised to know about him, he
says, "I'm an artist. I can
paint and sculpt any medium
in any way. Chainsaw carv-
ing is just a small part of my
work but, because it's so un-
usual, it gets the most atten-
tion."
He explains his philoso-
phy as an artist as he points

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MARCH 30, 2006


Can't get pumped up enough


By LEAH STRATMANN
Small town American has
never sounded better than in
the current production of
Pump Boys and Dinettes pre-
sented by Stage Crafters
Community Theatre. The
play is not really a play as in
a story with a plot-it is more
a slice of life depiction of the
interweaving lives of some
fellows who run a garage and
a pair of sisters who own a
diner across the street some-
where on Highway 57 be-
tween Frog Level and
Smyrna, in any state USA.
Starring real life musical
brothers Jim and Bill Garrett
as two of the pump boys, they
are ably joined by guitarist
Dylan Laurie and percus-
sionist Angelo Pearson. The
pump boys and the dinettes
are all more than capable
singers, but it is the men who
are the musicians. Jim
Garrett alone plays har-
monica, concertina, piano
and guitar and serves as


musical director for the pro-
duction.
Jane Judkins and Kat
Fresh bring the Cupp sisters
to life; each possessing the
vocal skills needed to portray
their characters. Rhetta
Cupp spends private time
with one of the pump boys,
while the Prudie Cupp is
looking for Mr. Right and col-
lecting tips at the Double
Cupp Diner.
Each of the main charac-
ters gets at least one solo in
a production that weaves
seamlessly from one side of
the street to the other. The
musical talent of the cast is
paramount to a quality pro-
duction and it would seem
Stage Crafters has at last a
wealth of musical talent to
draw upon, which has not
always been the case.
Early on, one of the pump
boys declares "Worry is like
a rocking chair; it will give
you something to do, but it
gets you nowhere." With this


production, nowhere is ex-
actly where you want to be,
looking forward to the next
toe-tapping musical revela-
tion.
The slightly less than 90-
minute production never
flags, due to adroit direction
by long time Stage Crafter
veteran Don Hood. Twenty-
one distinct musical numbers
leaves the viewer wanting
more.
The pump boys manage to
do a little work between sips,
tokes, singing, and ambling
across the street for pie and
coffee.
Everything from the
minimalist, but perfect set to
the costumes rings true, but
it is the vigor and talent of
the musical cast, which
makes the production so
much fun to witness. It is a
production guaranteed to
pump you up.
The play can be seen
March 31, April 1, April 6, 7
and 8 at 7:30 p.m. in the Fort


Walton Beach Civic Audito- April 9 at 2 p.m. Tickets are all Century 21 locations or at
rium as well as April 2 and $15 and may be purchased at the door.

Leaking Toilets



Did you know that toilet flushing accounts for
38 percent of household water use and a leaking toi-
let can be one of the greatest sources of water waste
in the home? A slow-leaking toilet can on average
waste up to 78,000 gallons of water per year. To check
for a slow leak, lift the tank lid and add a dozen drops
of food coloring. After an hour. if the coloring seeps
into the bowl, you have a leak.


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


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


These are just a few steps that you can take to
ensure the peak performance of your toilet. You \will

CASE
FROM FRONT
ership of the strip through a
Nov. 2002 quit claim deed.
Through that deed, Hill offi-
cially transferred ownership
of a three-foot strip to the
county in exchange for a $10
payment.
In addition, Stone ruled
that "the easement cannot be
said to be exclusive to the
Plaintiff' (Sun Seekers).
The Jan. 24, 2006 opinion
resulting from the Sun Seek-
ers appeal reversed that de-
termination.
The county's appeal to the
Florida Supreme Court is ex-
pected to cost about $15,000.







SCMCD seeks
vaccination
against
mosquito-
borne diseases
It is time to vaccinated
horses for eastern equine en-
cephalitis (EEE) and West
Nile virus (WNV). Vaccines
for these mosquito-borne dis-
eases are available through
veterinarians.
It is advisable that animals
get the vaccinations from a
DMV to ensure that the vac-
cines are of the proper dose,
viable, and the animal is
placed on the appropriate
schedule.
EEE and WNV affect all
equines; horses, donkeys,
mules, and ponies. To maxi-
mize safety animals should
be vaccinated semi-annually.

Just when you
thought that televi-
sion programming
had done it all, here
comes another sea-
son. Reality televi-
sion is once again
making its mark on
a country entranced
by buzzers, fights
and prizes.

Most of you know, if you
have read my articles;, I am
not the biggest fan of reality
television. It is a personal
choice that I have made to
not watch television pro-
gramming that seems shal-
low, to say it bluntly.
Many disAgree and. argue
that reality A-tlevision has
been a life-saver and is the
most enjoyable part; of the
day. Seems that those lives
might need a little bit more
of an excitement jolt. But who
is to argue and to. each his.
own:. *.
But since ithiig is my: time
to vent,I'll do just that! Here
we go..
I would start out with the
FOX Network programming,
but we only have so hiany
years to be on this earth.
Let's just say with all the re-
ality shows that the i~Iork
has shoved down our throats
since Big Brother, the reality
show train should have come
to the end of its track with
American Idol.
It is hard to maintain one
show .about truth, while try-
ing to keep positive ratings
up on two or more soiws
about bad kids, bugged
' houses and back-stabbing
roommates.
NBC's The Apprentice is a
smart show to some, a de-
grading show to others. The
"Donald" Trump self-indul-
gence hour, it maybe just
that.
He takes his victims, ex-
cuse me potential employees,
around Manhatten, shows
what all he owns, tells them
that with hard work, they
can have all this, and then
humiliates them on national
television and in the board
room.
Hey, Donald, want to let
the team know about your
bankruptcy and all the
troubles you had pulling your
sagging tail out of the grip?
Bet that episodes is being


saved for an A & E special.
Another gripe of mine
about reality television con-
cern all the new television
shows that deal with wife-
swapping and hiring a
nanny. Come on, most of
those wives wouldn't dare
leave their families and a
nanny would be in jail for
abuse or murder if she really
had to keep up with those
monsters.
ABC once again has tipped
the scales with both of these
shows, The Nanny and Wife
Swap. The network still has
the top -ranked show on jre-
ality television with Extreme
Makeover-Home Edition The
weekly program has won
endless awards and contin-
ues to help those in need of
new homes, financial help
and health care.

Not an episode goes by
that a tear or two won't roll
down your check. I gaurantee
it!
But the hot new smash on
the boob tube today has to be
NBC's Deal or No Deal. Some:
consider this reality televi-
sion, some say a gameshow,
while others simply say tha
whatever it is, it keeps their
adrenalin and blood pumping
and glued to the set.
The British-inspired show,
that brought back a shaved-
headed Howie Mandel and
saved his floudering career,
is on three nights a week.
For the sixth week in a row,
it has had the biggest
veiwing audiences per night
since the last few episodes of
M*A*S* H in the 1970s. It is
a show that requires equal
amounts of patience and
most of all luck. Aperson can
select a case with $5 or the
case that holds $1 million.
There does seem 'to be a
trend of more educational
reality shows beginning to
surface on the airwaves.
These shows tax more of our
mental capacity over simply
tickling our funny bone.
With so many shows on the
screen now and the countless
number of reality shows on
and about to hit the airways,
be selective in the program-
Sming you and your family
watch. And do yourself a fa-
vor, remember this is only
television and even if that
person wins big on the
gameshows or reality shows,
you will never see a dime of
such cash.
Happy Watching!
