School


Board


approves


Paxton


gym bid

by Patrick Casey
The Walton County School
Board held their regular
meeting on Monday, April 3,
at the Tivoli Administrative
Complex in DeFuniak
Springs.
The board (minus Darrell
Barnhill, who was absent)
voted to accept bids on two
of three projectsthat were up
for approval. The new Paxton
High School gymnasium was
approved on a 4-0 vote at a
price expected to be near
$4.26 million. Board mem-
bers accepted the base bid
only on the project and re-
jected over $75,000 in alter-
nate additions to the gym.
Speegle Construction won
the project bid. Wayne Miller,
supervisor ofAdministration
and Operations, informed the
board members that
$500,000 left over from the
wing addition at Paxton High
School could be used to help
fund the project that. was
originally expected to carry
a price tag of $3.5 million.
Board members also ac-
cepted a bid from Bell Mac
Roofing to re-roof Bay El-
ementary School at a cost of
$231,930, accepting only one
of the two alternate additions
that called for gabled dormer
louvers. The board turned
down a bid fromLord & Son
Construction to build recre-
ation fields for Emerald
Coast Middle School. The dis-
trict will likely sub-contract
the work to save money on a
project that carried a $1.43
million price tag thru Lord &
Son Construction, the only
firm to bid on the project.
Board members voied 3-1
to approve a spot survey for
the construction of a new
Walton High School. Plans
call for a two-story school to
be built adjacent to the cur-
rent Walton High School over
the next 2-3 years with an
estimated price tag between
$30-$40 million. The building
would feature over 167,000
square feet of space. Plans for
a new elementary school in
Mossy Head continue as well,
The school is projected at
97,000 square feet at a price
tag of $15-$20 million. Men-
tioned again, as at past meet-
ings, scarcity of labor and
building materials may slow
down the completion of both
schools, as well as unpredict-
able hurricane seasons. High
building costs are likely to
persist, if not increase fur-
ther, as well.
The school calendar for
the 2006-07 school year was
approved by the board after
a pair of half-day school days
were eliminated from the
previously submitted school
calendar. Teachers will re-
turn to work on August 1
with students returning on
Friday, August 4. The last
day for students will be May
23, 2007. The Florida State
Legislature is still looking at
passing a law concerning the
St a rating and ending dates of
the school year, but the issue
has waned for support. If
nothing is done in the next
few rnj rl i-, change will not
likely take effect this fall.

BCC attends


"Legislative Day


2006" in Tallahassee


By BRUCE COLLIER
Members of the Walton County Board of
County Commissioners (BCC) attended "Leg-
islative Day.2006," a day-long event in Tal-
lahassee, on March 29.
Attending from the BCC were Commis-
sioners Rosier Cuchens, Ken Pridgen, and
Larry Jones, County Administrator Ronnie
Bell, Assistant County Administrator Shirl-
Jones, Executive Assistant Dede Hinote, and
Citizens Serv'ices Director Ken Little.
The event was sponsored by the Florida
Association of Counties (FAC), a "non-profit,
voluntary service association" that informs
county officials and employees about current
items of interest, and advocates positions
on pending state legislation.
Legislative Day began at the Florida State
University's (FSU) Center for Professional
Development on the FSU. campus. Attend-
ees were given an "overview" of the current
legislative session.
An FAC panel spoke on finance, taxing and
appropriations, environmental planning and
agriculture, health and human services,
growth management and transportation, ad-
ministration, courts and public safety, and
legal, constitutional and employment law.
Eight pending bills attracted the most in-
terest, addressing local cable franchising, re-
zoning of mobile home parks, septic tanks,
community redevelopment areas, a revenue
sharing program for fiscally constrained
counties, Medicaid non-emergency transpor-
tation services needful persons, spending in-
creases for state courts, and proposed char-
ter county preemption.
The latter, according to FAC director of
communications Kristen F. Vallese, is of par-,
ticular interest.
According to the FAC information sheets,
bills pending in the Florida House and Sen-
ate are threatening to preempt the author-
ity of both charter and non-charter counties
to apply countywide ordinances within mu-
nicipal boundaries.
FAC is particularly opposed to those por-
tions of these bills that "invalidate a num-
ber of voter-approved referendums that au-
thorize countywide ordinances."
The pending bills, respectively titled HB
949 and SB 1608, were briefed in more de-


tail in a Small County Coalition (SCC) Leg-
islative .Briefing packet, provided to attend-
ees of a luncheon held the same day, follow-
ing the morning meeting.
The House bill would prohibit "certain
county provisions" within municipalities
without approval of county and municipal
electors or municipal governing boards.
The same bill also provides for readoption
of county provisions under certain circum-
stances, as well as non-application to certain
counties.
The. Senate version deals with develop-
'ment of land, and exclusive methods of mu-
nicipal annexation.
Other items discussed at the morning
meeting were state regulation of local impact
fees, property tax and the homestead
exemption, local affordable housing pro-
grams, juvenile justice costs, Medicaid re-
form, and county health departments.
The remainder of the afternoon was- de-
voted to scheduled meetings with members
of the House and Senate. The BCC was to
meet Senators Durell Peaden and Charles
Clary, and Representatives Marti Coley and
Don Brown.
A quorum call kept Peaden from his meet-
ing, and Clary had a full day and evening's
work with the Judiciary Committee. Both
senators' legislative assistants did meet with
the BCC.
Both Coley and Brown were able to keep
their appointments.
Bell and-the commissioners had drawn up
their "wish list" of legislative priorities for
2006. The 12-point list was topped by a re-
quest for additional funding to build four
lanes on U.S. 331 and the Clyde B, Wells
Bridge.
Also on the list was funding for beach re-
nourishment, improved waterway access,
transportation funding, revision of the tour-
ist development-tax for use in transportation
purposes, a state grant for Mossy Head Park
from the Florida Recreation Development
Assistance Program (FRDAP), a FRDAP
grant for expansion of Helen McCall Park,
support for the SCC's legislative program and
for Mossy Head Industrial Park, affordable

plans draw


criticism


by Leah Stratmann
Several months ago the
Board of County Commis-
sioners appointed a commit-
tee to investigate the possi-
bility of renovating the War-
ren Building for a senior life
enrichment center. Several
meetings and a workshop
later, some local citizens are
raising questions and objec-
tions, but as far as chairman
J.B. Hillard knows, those
folks are not bringing those
objections to the meetings or
the workshop held last week.
Stephen Callahan wrote a
letter to the BCC saying:
"The Warren building was
originally configured to sup-
port clinics, labs and doctors'
offices. There are water lines,
electrical lines, drains and
toilets throughout the build-
ing. Reconfiguration of the
Warren to support the pro-
posed seniorcenter would be
both difficult and very expen-
sive."
Hillard says at this point
nobody knows what anything
might cost. County engineers
are just now looking at the
building and Hillard says
"the engineers are working
on conversion costs now. This
committee is something the
county commissioners put
together with the senior cen-
ter as the agenda," he empha-
sized. Critics have suggested
the committee will not listen
to alternative uses of the
building, but the committee
is tasked with looking specifi-
cally into the creation of a,
senior center with this par-
ticular building in mind.
Preliminary plans for re-
design include creating one
large flexible room that could
be used as a ballroom, a party
room, or banquet hall.
"I don't know what the
agenda is of the people who
are offering up objections,
other than what.they are
stating in their" letter,"
Hillard said.
One of the proposals sug-
gested by Callahan call for
erecting one of the two
25,000 square foot prefab
building purchased by the
county years ago and origi-
nally slated to be used as a
Red Cross distribution site..
The distribution center never
materialized, but both of the
buildings are currently in


use-one is housing EMS
personnel and the other sits
adjacent to the new jail and
is being used for administra-
tive offices, according to Shirl
Williams, assistant county
administration. Callahan
suggested the building be put
in the Wee Care Children's
Park for use as a senior cen-
ter and that the operation
fall under the Parks and Rec-
reation department.
The future use of the two
buildings is uncertain, but
Hillard said there was talk
several years ago about mak-
ing one of the buildings into
a recreational center for
teens and it was judged as
prohibitively expensive. Fur-
ther, Hillard said, "Seniors
are not interested in being in
a playground like Wee Care
Children's Park. They want
a stand alone building in a
quiet area."
Among Callahan's other
concerns is the funding for a
center, which has yet to be.
devised. It is thought by the
College Complex Committee
that funding will come from
the CityofDeFuniak Spring
and Walton County.
Hillard said: "Senior Cen-
ters are not fully funded by
local taxes, but are supported
by several revenue sources.
Users of these facilities may
pay small fees for some ser-
vices and activities. Other
sources include municipal
and county government, spe-
cial levy funds, membership
dues, United Way, business
sponsors, state and federal
funds, donations,
fundraisers, and grants. A
novel idea used by Fort Wal-
ton Beach is to add member-
ship dues to the municipal
water bill. Many funding
sources are not available un-
til a center is up and run-
ning."
Hillard regards many of
the objections being raised as
being political innature and
said he welcomes all to at-
tend the hext meeting of the
committee on Thursday,
April 6 at 5. p.m. at the
'Church of Christ on College
Avenue.
"I have been to eight se-
nior centers in the Pan-
handle and I'm envious of
what I have seen. I would like
to see it here," he said.


College Avenue


Committee


holds workshop


by Leigh Strickland
The College Avenue Com-
plex Committee met Thurs-
day morning along with
members of the public to dis-
cuss proposed plans to use
the College Avenue Complex
as a senior recreation center.
The committee was
formed by the county to spe-
cifically address this
building's use.
Committee member Alex
Alexander said that the
neighborhood association
would like to do a senior cen-
ter, calling it the highest and
best use of the property.
J.B. Hillard, chairman of
the committee, said that this
is to be a joint operation be-
tween the city and the
county, like the library sys-
tem. The Warren building in-
volved in the project is
county owned and connected
properties are available for
future expansion.
At Thursday's workshop,
presentations were given by
three different senior center
directors. Each outlined their
program, including funding
sources, staffing, and other
aspects.
Hillard said that ideas
were being presented to help
the committee figure out how
to do the project.
Sheila Salyer from Talla-
hassee Senior Center said


that part of her center's fo-
cus is to help people stay in-
dependent and active.
It operates as a division of
the city of Tallahassee's
Neighborhood & Community
Services Department, with a
15 member advisory council
appointed by the mayor. It is
supported by the Tallahassee
Senior Citizens Foundation,
which is a private, non-profit
group with its own board of
directors.
City funding, then, goes to
the facility and administra-
tion. The foundation funds
other aspects of the center,
like programming. The
county awards grants
through the foundation, and
grants are also given by large
corporations.
Government funded pro-
grams have more security
than those privately funded,
Salyer said, while private
partners and sponsors help
draw community interest.
TSC has over 90 commu-
nity and business sponsors
and service providers, which
provide hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars in cash and
services.
People over the age of 55
are given priority in enroll-
ment in the programs of-
fered, but those'who are

Fund raising efforts continue for

Chautauqua Hall of Brotherhood auditorium


By LEIGH STRICKLAND

The Chautauqua Hall of
Brotherhood Foundation is
continuing its efforts to raise
funds to restore the,
Chautauqua Hall of Brother-
hood auditorium.
The auditorium will con-
nect to the existing structure,
although in compliance with
federal laws, it will not look
like the old building, but will
be recognizable as new con-
struction.
According to plans, its di-
mensions will be 120 feet by
80 feet and it will seat be-
tween 1,000 and 1,200 people.
The stage will accommodate
100 people.
Estimated cost for the res-
toration is between three and
a half and four million dol-
lars. It will take three to five
years to complete.
So far, the foundation has
raised over $31,000, and has
donated $26,500 to the city of


DeFuniak Springs for repairs
to the Chautauqua building.
This was done through grants
from the St. Joe Foundation
and the Gulf Power Founda-
tion.
Due to last year's hurri-
canes, most funds from pri-
vate foundations are going to
help historical preservation
of damaged buildings on the
Gulf coast. However, the
Chautauqua foundation is in
contact with at 'least one


other foundation that is inter-
ested in helping with its res-
toration.
It has also been in touch
with various state politicians
about funding for the project.
All have responded favorably.
On the local level, there
are two annual events for
raising funds, the Festival of
Trees and the Chautauqua
Tea. More local events may be
on the way in the future to
help in the restoration efforts.


From humble beginnings based on affordable, trustworthy
service, we have grown into a reliable resource your family
can.depend on. Rooted in our traditions, we stay firmly
connected to the families we serve and the care we provide.
We continue serving all faiths and all families in the only

SBA disaster


loan deadline


April 10, 2006


The U.S. Small Business
Administration (SBA) is re-
minding businesses in the
counties of Bay, Calhoun, Es-
cambia, Franklin, Gulf,
Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson,
Leon, Liberty, Okaloosa,
Santa Rosa, Wakulla, Walton
and Washington in the state
of Florida that economic in-
jury loans (EIDLs) are still
available to small businesses
that were economically im-
pacted by Hurricane Dennis
that occurred July 10-16,
2005.
"Small businesses that suf-
fered economic injury losses
from the disaster wanting to
apply for a low-interest loan
from the SBA are urged to do
so before the April 10 dead-
line," said Frank Skaggs, di-
rector of SBA Field Opera-
tions Center East.
Small businesses may ap-
ply for a loan up to $1.5 mil-
lion if they suffered substan-
tial economic injury from the
disaster. These working capi-
tal loans may be used to pay
fixed debts, payroll, accounts
payable, and other bills that


could have been paid had the
disaster not occurred. These
loans are not intended to re-
place lost sales or profits.
The interest rate on these
loans is 4.0 percent, with a
maximum term of 30 years.
The SBA determines the
amount of economic injury,
the terms of each loan and the
payment amount, based on
the financial circumstances of
each borrower.
To obtain a loan applica-
tion, interested business
owners should contact SBA's
National Customer Service
Center by calling 800-659-
2955 (for hearing-impaired 1-
800-877-8339); Monday

until 9 p.m., EST. Business
loan applications can also be
downloaded from the SBA's
website at www.sba.gov/di-
saster. Completed applica-
tions should be mailed to U.S.
Small Business Administra-
tion, National Processing and
Disbursement Center, 14925

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 6, 2006


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


PERSONAL COMMENTS


Apathy wins by a landslide


By RON KELLEY

You might say they held an election and nobody came.
Three DeFuniak Springs City Council members were
elected last month without a single vote being cast. The only
winner was apathy by a landslide. The people were certainly
not well served. Some said they knew nothing about it, but
the city ran a public notice in the Herald in our March 2
edition announcing qualifying time for the upcoming elec-
tions.
Do not misunderstand, all three council members are fine
men with whom I have no personal quarrel. The problem
here involves a much larger issue.
What does it say when no one bothers to run for office?
For an incumbent, it's tempting to think that they must
simply be doing such a fine job that not one single person
felt they should do anything differently.
That would be a tempting thought, but it would amount
to little more than self-deception. As someone who walks,
talks, looks and listens for a living, I can tell you that there
is no shortage of complaints from the public about the way
this city is governed.
So, with a clear undercurrent of discontent, why was there
not a single challenger?



Editor,
Almost eighty million people come to Florida every year,
and they spend more than $50 billion dollars, or over 20 per-
cent of our state's sales tax, during their visit. What brings
these people to Florida? They come to enjoy our beautiful
beaches-to boat, fish and play on our 1200 miles of exquisite
coastline.
Next week, at the request of Florida senators Mel Martinez
and Bill Nelson, the Interior Department's Office of Miner-
als Management Service (MMS) has finally agreed to hold
one hearing in Florida on its proposed 5 year drilling plan.
The Administration's plan, which would set federal oil and
gas policy from 2007 to 2012, includes opening up 2 million
acres in the eastern Gulf of Mexico, directly off Florida's coast
to new oil and gas drilling.
Oddly enough, The Interior Department has chosen the
non-coastal city of Tallahassee for its hearing and, to add
insult to injury, has scheduled the hearing in the middle of
the day when most people are at work. Could the reason be
that the last time a public hearing on offshore oil drilling
was held in Pensacola, more than 1,000 people showed up?
Now how are those citizens supposed to make certain their
voices are heard?
Given that our coasts and the resulting tourism industry
is the life-blood of this state, one would think that citizens
who live along the coast of Florida would be given an oppor-
tunity to voice their concerns.
From Pensacola to KeyWest, citizens of this great state
deserve the opportunity to be heard. The clear signal from
the Interior Department seems to be they don't really care
what we think about their plans and would just as soon not
hear from us. -. /,.i
Frustrated by the original decision not to schedule a hear-
ing in Florida, Tampa Bay Congressman Jim Davis made
plans to hold his own hearing-where businesses and tax-
payers affected by the actions being proposed could have their
say. We appreciate the congressman's efforts to make sure
this district is heard.
It is easy to see where this is all going. The White House
and the MMS have already redrawn seaward boundaries for
the entire Outer Continental Shelf and in doing so, with no
public comment, moved a lot of federal waters off Florida's
coast into Louisiana and Alabama's administrative jurisdic-
tions. Sixteen members of the Florida Congressional del-
egation sent a letter of complaint to the Department of Inte-
rior, to no avail.
Governor Jeb Bush and every elected official in Florida
should demand that the MMS hold proper hearings through-
out Florida, in appropriate places at times that will allow
most working people to attend.
To do any less is an outrage and sends a clear message to
Floridians that The White House is prepared to take away
our voice on the issue of drilling off Florida's coastline.

EDITOR'S COMMENT


While there are a number of potential contributing fac-
tors, it ultimately comes down to apathy, which my Oxford
Universal Dictionary describes as "indifference and insen-
sitivity to suffering, passion or feeling."
On one hand, I can understand the overwhelming sense
of hopeless frustration regarding politics and that feeling
that there are too much many problems to fix, as though
one were trying to bail out a sinking ocean liner using noth-
ing more than one small pail.
However, it is precisely that frustration that spurs me to
action. While it is true that one person cannot, by them-
selves, solve every problem or right every wrong and injus-
tice, it is also true that one person can change the world
and every great idea and great work first began as an idea
in the heart of one man or woman. We should never under-
estimate what I call the 'power of one.'
There was one Jesus, one Joan of Arc, one Plato, one
Charlemagne, one Rembrandt, one Michelangelo, one Jef-
ferson, one Franklin, one Washington and Lincoln, one
Edison, one Bell, one Einstein, one Mother Theresa, one
Martin Luther King, one Picasso, one Grandma Moses, one
Sinatra, one Presley, one Bogart and one 'Duke.'
The power of one. It can come anytime, from anywhere
and any when.
A couple of years ago, when I voiced a similar concern
about a lack of election challengers, an election official ac-
cused me of simply wanting to sell newspapers, but his logic
was imperfect. In this age of instant television, radio and
Internet communications, elections do not sell papers. With
election day coming only once every couple of years, how
could we still manage to sell tens of thousands of papers
that never mention an election?
It's not elections that sell papers, it's the actions, good
and bad, noble and shameful, of some of those who get elected
that really sell papers.
Recently, a friend reminded me of the writings ofAlexander
Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of
Edinborough back when the 13 colonies were still a part of
England. He was writing about "The Fall of the Athenian
Republic," which happened 2,000 years ago. However, his
words seem eerily prophetic and he could have easily been



Editor,
Time and time again I have to read slandered and/or un-
founded facts published by newspapers. I read up to five
newspapers a week with corrections being made all the time.
You would think that writers would get all the facts first
or not even publish things they themselves cannot prove as
fact. It is a sad day today that I have to do that again. It's
even worse that the family of the deceased has to do it as
well Your article "PDL Motorcyclist Killed" March 22, does
just this. I was approached about the article by someonee
who knew I was there with the question, "Did you do every-
thing you could for that man on the motorcycle?" They then
told me about the article in its entirety. I came home read
the article, which I then immediately began to write. True,
fair, and balanced, that should be the motto of every news
organization world wide, less propaganda, more facts: or
the whole truth.
This letter is in defense of all emergency service person-
nel everywhere. Taking the opportunity to
"slam" emergency service personnel by one woman should
even have been part of the article. Its obvious she took that
opportunity for whatever reason and Mr. Collier (being ei-
ther naive or unprofessional: which I don't know) took it as
the gospel. It isn't fair to do this to two guys who cared
enough to stop, even though they were off duty! It's not fair
to us, nor is it fair to Mr. Roeting's family.and friends. I am
a professional firefighter and a national registered emer-
gency medical technician. I only know that the other guy
was a professional firefighter, therefore a first responder,
since first responder is required by the State of Florida to
have your professional standards.
It's articles like this that more emergency personnel do
not stop at off duty accidents prior to on duty personnel
arriving for fear of this exact stereotyping. On this particu-
lar day I did not have any emergency medical equipment or
gear to be in direct contact with the patient. As a regis-
tered nurse, Thompson should know that the first thing you
are taught as a emergency care provider is to have personal
protective equipment donned and body substance isolation
gear donned before being in direct contact with any patient.
My national registry EMT license is not recognized by the
state of Florida; therefore, I was only acting as a first re-
sponder, which is very basic patient care, and as a liaison
between the Walton County dispatch center and the respond-
ing medical personnel, which were two ambulances and the
Argyle Fire Department.
Your article states that, "Thompson said that she saw that
Roeting was still breathing, and began to administer mouth
to mouth resuscitation." Wrong, wrong, wrong. Why would
we give a patient mouth to mouth if they are still breath-
ing? It is a fact that Mr. Roeting's condition that day and
still today are confidential and protected by federal and state
patient confidentiality laws. Therefore it isn't Thompson's
place to be commenting on any of Mr. Roeting's conditions
or status that day, unless it is the FHP investigators doing
the report since the death of Mr. Roeting. The only other
people she should have been discussing this issue with that
day, should have been only higher medical authority attend-
ing to Mr. Roeting, not your newspaper!
Myself, and the other emergency worker Thompson men-
tions were acting well within our scope of knowledge and
professional boundaries set forth by federal and state laws
that protect emergency service personnel. I am truly sorry
for the loss of the Roeting family and am even more grieved
they had to read about emergency personnel "declining to
assist" their loved one in a time of need. From now on I
expect your newspaper to respect professional emergency
service personnel and the tough jobs they have to perform
each and every day, on duty and off.

Editor's Note:


The Herald-Breeze respects and admires all emergency
service personnel. However, we stand beside our coverage
of the story, which contained nothing but facts and did not
identify the emergency personnel or their departments.
Further, Ms. Thompson was not bound by any law and
was only acting as a Good Samaritan.


speaking about America today.
Tyler said, "A democracy is always temporary in nature;
it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government.
A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that
voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts
from the public treasury. From that moment 6n, the major-
ity always votes for the candidates who promise the most
benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every
democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy,
(which is) always followed by a dictatorship.
"The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from
the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During
those 200 years, these nations always progressed through
the following sequence:
From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage."
Welcome to America 2006.
Everyday, we see complacency and apathy about serious
and grievous losses of civil rights and liberties and a hun-
dred other injustices that once would have brought millions
of marchers to Capitol Hill.
We see too many Americans fatally dependent on govern-
ment to provide for their every need and most of their com-
forts. We see a government too willing to use fear to lead
the people back into bondage in the name of safety. We see
far too many people willing, even eager, to slip their hands
into chains gripped by a nearly omnipotent, all-powerful
government that grows fatter and hungrier by the day.
SThe important thing to remember. is that a truly free and
democratic republic does not start in Washington or Talla-
hassee or in any other capitol building.
It starts here at home. It starts with the power of one. It
starts with me.
It starts with you.





Mossy Head


Water Works takes


silver medal


By RONKELLEY

The best water in Florida
is. the second best water in'
the nation. According to the
National Rural Water Asso-
ciation (NRWA), Mossy Head
Water Works has the second
best tasting water in
America.
All 50 states competed in
the national competition,
held this week in Washing-
ton, D.C. On Monday, Mossy
Head Water Works President
Tom Terrell and wife, Joyce,
learned that Mossy Head had
made it into the top five. At
the Tuesday luncheon, which
featured the water tasting
and judging competition,
Mossy Head took the silver
medal, making it among the
best tasting water systems in
America, second only to a
small community in Utah.


S"I'm floating on top of the
ceiling," said Tom Terrell.
"When they called our name,
my wife started to cry and. I
put my MHWW cap on before
I went up to accept the
award. It was a unforgettable
moment. I'm so proud of our
staff and crew. For a small
community water system,
this is a great honor."


Relay for Life'
yard sale
"The Mossy Head Miracle
Marchers Relay For Life
Team will have a yard sale on
Saturday, April 8, from 8 a.m.
until noon, at The Cabinet
Shop, across from Sterling
Lumber Co. on North 9th
Street. All proceeds go to
American Cancer Society."


Editor,
The Herald/Breeze has come a long way-from the acquisi-
tion and merger in the 50s, Howard Storr's flat-bed press,
and now great color.
Although my subscription lapses from time to time, it keeps
me in touch with goings on in what was-and I certainly hope
still is-the greatest place in the world in which to grow up.
At our class reunions (1960, if you are curious) we.reminisce
and compare all the, places that collectively we have lived
and we consistently arrive at the same conclusion.
No rose is without thorns: I wish y'all wouldn't use so many
acronyms in your writing: I always have to stop to try to
figure out the difference between the BCC and DSPCC.' Why
not just "county commissioners" and "city council." Ink can't
be that expensive!

Editor:
Two weeks ago, I wrote a letter to the editors of our local
area newspapers warning of the present dangers of postal
fraud that may lead to identity theft and fraud. Apparently
there was enough reaction by the public to cause the U.S.
Postal Service (USPS) to formulate a letter of explanation
written by their communications officer.
I'm sure the purpose of the letter was to allay the peoples
concerns that the USPS might be part of the problem in
today's identity theft and fraud issues. He outlined all the
procedural safeguards presently in place to keep mail from
being forwarded fraudently.
However, those safeguards were not followed in my case!
He also stated "for the record, we (USPS) do not accept
change of address orders via email" Yet the post master at
our post office told me specifically that they were informed
by email to forward my mail to an address in Jacksonville,
FL.
The communications officer, therefore, has an issue with
the local post master, not with me! By the way, the perpe-
trators of identity theft at that address in Jacksonville got
my identity numbers (SS, Telephone, etc.) and have since
attempted to open bank accounts in my name, using
my identity.
In my case, I think the whole problem is simply that by
forwarding my mail, without my knowledge, the
USPS, through negligence, incompetence or collus-
ion, caused postal fraud to occur which fed my identity in-
formation directly to the perpetrators of identity theft.
Therefore, my warning to everybody remains. Be on guard
for postal fraud that can lead to identity theft. Take pre-
cautions !

The term REALTORhas come to connote competency,
fairness, and high integrity resulting from adherence to a
lofty ideal of moral conduct in business relations. No
inducement of profit and no instruction from clients ever
can justify departure from this ideal.

In the interpretation of this obligation, REALTORScan
take no safer guide than that which has been handed down
through the centuries, embodied in the GOLDEN. RULE,
"WHATSOEVER YE WOULD THAT OTHERS
SHOULD DO TO YOU, DO YE EVEN SO TO
THEM."

Accepting this standard as their own, REALTORSpledge
to observe its spirit in all of their activities and to conduct
their business in accordance with the tenets set forth
below....

SOME THINGS DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Real estate whether it is a family home, land or any investment property is generally the
largest single investment a family has in their portfolio. All of us as Americans have the
right to own and enjoy property. Needless to say, buying or selling your piece of the
American Dream can be one of the most emotional ventures a family will ever embark on.
Should I sell or buy this on my own, or do I require the service of a professional? Consider
this when choosing a real estate agent for the job of overseeing your piece of the American
Dream. There are real estate agents and Realtors. There is also a Certified Residential
Specialist. All real estate agents go through the same education and testing to become
licensed but not all are Realtors. A Realtor is held to and subscribes to a strict Code of
Ethics. A Realtor is compelled to uphold and live by that code by his or her piers locally
and nationally. Only 4% of Realtors in the U.S. can call themselves a Certified Residential
Specialist. To earn the CRS designation an agent must go through several years of special-
ized unique courses, testing, rigorous training and sales performance. A Certified
Residential Specialist is required to maintain membership in the National Association of
Realtors and to abide by its strict Code of Ethics. That means when you work with a CRS
you can be assured that you are dealing with a trained real estate professional that will treat
you fairly every step of the way. SOME THINGS DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Discover
the difference for yourself.

Blood feud: Northwest Florida Blood Center advises donors to keep it local


By BRUCE COLLIER
The Northwest Florida
Blood Center (NWFBC) is ad-
vising prospective blood do-
nors to be cautious in choos-
ing where they give blood,
lest their contributions end
up out of state.
According to NWFBC's
community representative
Pamela Metras, competing


organizations have been col-
lecting blood in area blood
drives, in communities simul-
taneously visited by NWFBC.
Donors are informed that
the collecting organizations
are "serving local hospitals,"
when in fact the blood is
transported out of state, to
Alabama and elsewhere, said
Metras.


"Our shelves are bare," she
said, adding that NWFBC is
contractually obligated to
provide blood for 22 area hos-
pitals and facilities.


These facilities include
Sacred Heart Hospital on the
Emerald Coast in Santa Rosa
Beach, and Healthmark Re-
gional Medical Center in De-


Funiak Springs.
Shortages compel NWFBC
to purchase blood from out-
side sources, generally at
higher rates, in order to meet


its contractual obligations.
Metras said that NWFBC
furnishes approximately 175
units per day to its custom-
ers.


"National Public Health Week" April 3-9


April named "Child
Abuse Prevention Month"


By BRUCE COLLIER
The Florida Department of
Health(DOH) has named
April "Child Abuse Preven-
tion Month" statewide.
Child abuse prevention
materials are being made
available this month at Child
Protection Team offices and
at County Health Depart-
ments all over Florida.
Dr. Joseph M. Chiaro,
Deputy Secretary of Health


for Children's Medical Ser-
vices has called child abuse
and neglect "an issue that
involves all Floridians."
DOH is emphasizing the
role of physicians in recogniz-
ing and reporting physical or
medical evidence of child
abuse.
Child Abuse Prevention
Month was first recognized in
1982, by President Ronald
Reagan.


April 3 9 is "National
Public Health Week." Walton
County Health Department
will continue to observe the
occasion by sponsoring a Wal-
ton County Community
Health Improvement Part-
nership (CHIP) meeting on
Friday, April 28.
The CHIP meeting will
take place at the Freeport old
post office building, from


11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Lunch
will be available for $7 per
person.
The purpose of the meet-
ing is to consider ways to im-
prove overall health in the
county, and to focus on the
"ten essential public health
care services."
This list of services was
drafted by the Public Health
Functions Steering Commit-


tee.
The ten essential services
are: identification of commu-
nity health problems, inves-
tigation of health problems
and hazards, informing, edu-
cating and empowering
people about health issues,
mobilizing community health
partnerships, developrhent of
policies and plans supporting
health care efforts, enforce-


ment of health laws and regu-
lations, assuring provision of
otherwise unavailable health
care, assuring a competent
health care workforce, evalu-
ation of health care services,
and research of new solutions
to health problems.
For more information on
the CHIP meeting, call 892-
8015.


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.

911 dispatchers honored


The second week in April is
traditionally designated as a
time to honor 911 dispatch-
ers who answer calls for help
and are the "first- first re-
sponders" to law enforce-
ment, fire and medical emer-
gencies. The Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners proclaimed April 10
through April 16 as National
Public-Safety Tele-communi-
cators Week in Walton
County.
The calm voice on the other
side of the phone is what few
people remember when they
are in a crisis. The fact is
help is already being pro-
vided as they speak with a
911 operator. Sometimes it
is in the form of protecting
the caller from further harm,
or providing them with life-
saving instructions or ways
to protect themselves until
help arrives.
Emergency communication
dispatchers make the differ-
ence between life and death

in many instances. Dispatch- work in the 911 communica-
ers are the key to a timely tions center. Each day these


response to all law enforce-
ment, fire and medical calls
that come through the dis-
patch center. Yet the dis-
patchers are one of the most
overlooked when it comes
time to thank those who do a
great job day in and day out.
The citizens of Walton
County depend on the skill,
expertise and commitment of
the men and women who


individuals save countless
lives by answering emer-
gency and non-emergency
calls. They deliver babies,
administer CPR and stabilize
trauma victims all over the
phone.
The Walton County Emer-
gency Operations Dispatch
Center answers all calls for
law enforcement, fire and
medical assistance in Walton


County, and insures the
proper agency is briefed to
dispatch the appropriate re-
sponders. This is done 24/7,
365 days a year. The dis-
patch center is normally
staffed with three dispatch-
ers during the day shift and
two during the night shift.
According to EOC Manager
Christine Bell, the call cen-
ter handled 65,508 calls for
law enforcement, fire and
medical assistance last year.

The dangers of spring break


By Jeannie Bent, PALS
Prevention Teacher

While some adults are
thinking about gardening
and doing some spring clean-
ing, there are teenagers
thinking only one thing:
spring break.
Spring break isjust around
the corner, and what used to
be mainly a college ritual now
has become many high school
Sstudents'spring holiday. Alot
of students are planning trips
to the beach or maybe going
on a cruise. It will be a week
of fun with friends, without
parents, and no rules. To
some spring breakers, every-
thing goes.
Before a teenager leaves for
spring break, parents should
talk to them about the rules
and expectations for having
a safe and responsible fun
time. Although a lot of par-
ents are very clear of what
they expect from their chil-
dren, there are others that
may not have this conversa-
tion. It may be due to the fact
that some parents feel un-
comfortable or unsure of
what to say or how to ap-
proach the subject. There are
some parents that are not
aware that spring break is
synonymous with alcohol -
abuse, not to mention other
risky or illegal behavior.
Some parents may think they
have no influence.in their
child's life, but they're wrong.
By discussing their concerns
and making their expecta-
tions clear, they are influenc-
ing their child not to engage
in drug or alcohol use.
Spring break is famous for
wild parties, risky behavior,
consuming alcohol, and the
use of illegal substances. For
a lot of teenagers, they see,
this as a time for getting
away from authority for a
week. Risky behavior such as
promiscuity leading to unpro-
tected sex, inebriation, lead-
ing to assault, and illegal ac-
tivities leading to arrest are
the highest, most risky be-
haviors for teenagers during
this time. Some crimes that
usually occur during spring
break are vandalism, theft,
assault, and rape. While not
all teenagers will take part in
violent crimes and not all
teens are victims, any child
could still be involved in un-
lawful activities over spring
break by just being with the
wrong crowd.
The White House Office of
National Drug Control Policy
(ONDCP ) warns parents
that first-time use of mari-
juana, cigarettes, and alcohol
by U.S. teens increases
sharply during spring break.
Most of the teens, according
to ONDCP, say "the greatest
risk they feel in using mari-


juana is upsetting their par-
ents or losing the respect of
friends and families."
For parents with a teen-
ager that is getting ready for
spring break, be sure to dis-
cuss with them the dangers
and risks that are involved in
a trip that is unsupervised. It
is important for teenagers to
know that parents encourage

w


them to develop their inde-
pendence but with that de-
pendance comes responsibil-
ity, and they are expected to
follow the same rules and
regulations when they are
home.

tact Bryan Callahan or

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 6, 2006


BOARD

housing traffic concurrency,
and use of evacuation times
as road improvement criteria.
The same list included a
"community budget issue re-
quest," asking for funds for
Bay Loop Stormwater Resto-
ration Phase II, Helen McCall
Park, Gaskin Park, Mossy
Head Park, Morrison Springs
Park, and Lake Jackson Bike
Path.
The attendees learned that
all of the above items have
already been scheduled for
"conference" by their respec-
tive committees in both leg-
islative chambers.
The BCC also carried two
resolutions to their represen-
tatives. The first addressed a
request for $2,145,000 to
cover a shortfall in funding
for construction of the County
Health Department building
in DeFuniak Springs.
The shortfall apparently
came as the result of cost in-
creases for square footage,
which rose from $130 to $195
per square foot since the ini-
tial appropriation in July of
2005.
The second resolution re-
quested assistance from the
Florida Bureau of Public
Land Administration, and
from the representatives for
Walton County to assist Wal-
ton County in purchasing sur-
plus land to develop
"workforce housing sites."
That workforce includes
"firefighters, teachers, engi-
neers, and many other profes-
sionals."
Much of the afternoon was
spent in traveling between
the Senate and House office
buildings, and in waiting
rooms filled with assorted
lobbyists and staffers.
Meetings with the legisla-
tors and their assistants were
uniformly brief, but B11 ex-
pressed satisfaction with the
results of the meetings. The
BCC attendees were espe-
cially pleased,that all of their
proposed budget issues had


been set for conference.
On all issues, the legisla-
tors and their assistants
promised to "what they
could," though additional
funding for U.S. 331 is ex-
pected to "take a little time."
Bell commented that the
meetings with legislative as-
sistants were usually as pro-
ductive as those with the leg-
islators themselves.
The state currently has a
budget surplus, which Repre-
sentative Brown observed
brings people "out of the
woodwork" looking for funds.
Brown's words were borne
out in the halls of both office
buildings. Offices and com-
mittee rooms were filled with
single-issue lobbyists, carry-
ing satchels of photographs,
maps, charts, and articles
briefing lawmakers on the
worthiness of their respective
causes.
A reception was held for all
Legislative Day attendees at
the former Capitol Building,
but most of the Walton
County attendees got back on
the road to home after the fi-
nal meeting.


Funding is received from
both the city and the county.
Seventy percent of seniors
that come to the center are
county residents.
Donations are also re-
quested from groups and
clubs, but are not required.
PBSC has a half million
dollar budget and a staff of
three. The majority of its pro-
grams are run by volunteers.
For programming, Brown
said, they had tried to copy
many of Tallahassee's pro-
grams. He also said that se-
niors themselves offer sug-
gestions on what to offer.
PBSC offers ballroom
dancing, card games, weights,
and bicycles among other
things. It is soon going to a
seven day a week schedule.

it's sort of a local icon.

Ed leaves DeFuniak Springs this Sunday to
join *a group of Model A restoration
enthusiasts for a week-long trek that will
take them from Ozark, Alabama up to Tupelo,
Mississippi and down the famous Natchez
Trace to Natchez and then across southern
Mississippi on the way back home.

We thought it would be a great idea to
chronicle Ed's adventure, so we've enlisted
Ed's grandson, Travis McHenry to keep all of
us up to date on the group as over 30 Model
A's make their journey.

Enjoy our reports from Travis 5 times each

Police dog locates

suspect for

assault, grand theft


By BRUCE COLLIER
A dog assisted the police in
apprehending a fugitive on
March 29.
DFSPD K9 officer Derek
Walters reported that the po-
lice received a call on the af-
ternoon of March 29, report-
ing a "suspicious person" at
Walton Electrical.
An officer went to the
scene and identified Jeffrey
Scott Coley. Coley is a white
male, 29, whose address is
497 Darby Road in DeFuniak
Springs. Coley was wanted by
Walton County Sheriff's Of-


fice (WCSO).
Coley reportedly fled on
foot, running into a wooded
area adjacent to 57 Owens
Drive.
Police and sheriff's units
contained Coley in the area.
DFSPD officers and a K9 unit
from Walton County Correc-
tional Institute tracked Coley
to his hiding place, the attic
of an abandoned house.
Coley was arrested and
taken to Walton County jail,
where he has been booked on
charges of grand theft and
aggravated assault.

By Robin Newton

Members of Homegrown Kids and Pollinators 4-H Clubs were recently treated to a visit from
Dona Simmons, a volunteer from the Museum of Natural History's Butterfly Rainforest. She delighted
the children and parents with a presentation about butterflies and moths.
Mrs. Simmons is a recently retired teacher from Maryland who relocated to Florida with her
family. She has always been interested in butterflies and after a visit to the Butterfly Rainforest in
Gainesville, she and her husband decided to offer their time as volunteers. They received training at
the Rainforest and now spend at least one day a week helping out. Along with learning all about the
Rainforest, an important skill they were taught was how to pick up butterflies and moths without
injuring them.
The new Butterfly Rainforest Outreach Program provided Mrs. Simmons with quite a bit of
educational materials, including a 3-foot fabric chrysalis. Airika Dunn was eager to participate by
allowing Mrs. Simmons to slip the gigantic chrysalis over her during the demonstration. A Powerpoint
presentation of butterflies and moths consisted of actual pictures taken at the museum. Dona's hus-
band, Bill, took all of the photos.
The children learned about the lifecycle of butterflies and moths, how these lovely creatures
find their host and food plants, and all about the Butterfly Rainforest in Gainesville. Mrs. Simmons
explained that there are no host plants in the Rainforest because hungry caterpillars would eat every-
thing in sight! She also said that many of the butterflies and moths are not native to the area and
would not survive outside the museum. She then described the room that blows air on visitors after
they leave the Rainforest to discourage "hitchhikers" from leaving.
Parents and children were excited to hear Mrs. Simmons tell her story of raising a butterfly
after purchasing a host plant, complete with caterpillar. Dona brought a photo of her butterfly, a
Common Buckeye, to show to the children.

MOTHS SEEKING FOOD. L-to-R Stephen Anderson, Ashly Cuchens, Airika Dunn, Holly Dunn, Frankie Cuchens.


HITCHHIKERS are prevented from leaving
the Butterfly rainjbrest by a fan system.


Children recalled seeing butterflies on the ground from tiipe to time and
were pleased to learn that this "puddling" is a result in the bptterflie's need
for minerals from the soil that can be absorbed through groundwater.
Hands-on activities included playing games, creating an artistic but-
terfly life cycle, and planting zinnia seeds for their own butterfly gardens.
The children donned "butterfly" glasses with multi-faceted lenses and were
given the opportunity to try to find the correct nectar plant for both moths
and butterflies. Since moths fly only at night, they must find their food
plants by smell, so the children had to find the correct plants by finding
several plants with the same scent.

Mrs. Simmons had lots of goodies for the children and parents. In addition to a multi-
faceted eyepiece that represented a butterfly's eye, each child received a folder with a
picture of Florida'state butterfly, the Zebra Longwing, on the front. Inside were activity
sheets for the children, information on butterflies and moths in Florida, and a postcard
for each child from the Butterfly Rainforest. Origami butterflies from the Rainforest
Outreach Program were given to each child. Butterfly-shaped sugar cookies and but-
terfly cookies made from fried wontons were indeed a treat for children and parents
alike.
The two clubs hope to put their knowledge of butterflies to work in a joint conm-
munity service project later this year. A trip to the Butterfly Rainforest is being dis-
cussed as well. Mrs. Simmons will be returning to the panhandle in April as the guest
speaker for the Open Door Club.

Open Door Community Club meets


By SALLY ORLOSKY
"The Few, the Proud, the
Marines;" "The Thrill ofVic-
tory, the Agony of Defeat,"
and "Let Me Win, But If I
Cannot Win, Let Me Be
Brave in the Attempt." Most
of us are very familiar with
the first two mottoes of brav-
ery and courage and
strength, but the third one is
a little less known. It is the
motto of the Special Olym-
pics and the participants
Must have the 'lion's share'
of all three of these virtues.
The Special Olympics.
KATHRYN CLARK, Special group from Walton County is
Olympics Director of Athlete one of the benefactors of the
Leadership speaks to Open Open Door Club's community
Door Club. service project, so it only


seemed natural to have
someone from Special Olym-
pics provide an update.
Open Door vice-president
Anne Ryan introduced.
Kathryn Clark of the Inter-
national Special Olympics
Committee. Over two million
people from 150 countries
currently participate in the
Special Olympic year-round
sports training and competi-
tion in 26 different Olympic-
type summer and winter
sports. Seven million devel-
opmentally/intellectually dis-
abled people live right here
in the United States.
"It is important to see the
abilities and not the limita-
tions of each person," is an-
other motto dear to the or-
ganization. The athletes' suc-
cess not only depends on
them, but on the support,
help and acceptance of their
own communities. This is dif-
ficult given the amount of
prejudice and discrimination
that most of the Special
Olympics athletes face. Sup-
port from the community
makes the Special Olympics
a reality.
These young and older ath-
letes not only gain health and
fitness from the training and
competition, but they gain
something that is bigger and
deeper than that. They gain
something most of us take for
granted, that of increased
self-confidence and self-es-
teem, a better social adjust-
ment and social skills.
Before .the 1960s, people
who were born developmen-
tally-disabled or retarded, as
it was known then, were sys-
tematically put in institu-
tions for the rest of their lives
because it was then thought,,
that they did not have the
capability to learn anything.
President John Kennedy's
sister, Eunice, spearheaded
the campaign to make Spe-
cial Olympics a reality. Her
philosophy was that if these
people could be trained in
sports, they could learn to
compete.
The first Special Olympics,
which consisted of track, field
and swimming events was
held in July 1968 in Chicago.
There were no spectators,


just the athletes and the vol-
unteers. Experts in the field
of mental retardation were
the naysayers saying that
the athletes would not be
able to stay in their lanes and
would drown.
On that warm, July after-
noon, the young rookie ath-
letes proved the experts
wrong. In 1968, there was
the 50 and the 100 yard dash.
Now, there is even a mara-
thon in the Special Olympics
events, in addition to gym-
nastics, equestrian skills,
soccer, basketball, bowling,
tennis, golf, volleyball,
weightlifting and basketball
to name a few. In the winter
sports arena, there is even
ice-skating and skiing.
Clark continued by telling
of her specific duties in the
Special Olympics. She is the
director of Athlete Leader-
ship and has helped organize
groups in Russia, Africa,
Vietnam, Chile, Malaysia
and Kenya. This year, Korea,'
China and Argentina have
been added and she just
started a Special Olympics
group in the Caribbean.
She said that developmen-
tal disabilities is the last mi-
nority in today's society. Ac-
cording to Clark, the pro-
gram has come a long way,
but still has a long way to go.
Ruth Bjorkman, chairper-
son of the nominating com-
mittee presented the 2,006-
2007 slate of officers and
asked for additional nomina-
tions from the floor. Open
Door members voted and
elected the following officers
for next year: president, Bar-
bara McLellan; first vice-
president, Anne Ryan; second
vic.e-pre.ident, _Jean. Fa-

Book signing in DFS


Have you ever wished you
could run away and join the
circus? Well, that is exactly
what Jim Bovee did. Now, in
his newly published book,
Gadjo, an Odyssey, Volume 1:
The Beginning, Jim takes the
reader along as he starts his
journey that will ultimately
take him into the world of cir-
cus.
Jim will be presenting a
book signing and autograph
party at The Book Store on
Saturday, Apr. 15 from 10
a.m. until 1 p.m. Afree DVD
of The Bovee's Circus Acts
will be given away with the
first ten Gadjo purchases.
The Book Store is located on
the corner of 6th and Baldwin
in downtown DeFuniak
Springs.
Mr. Bovee has spent most
of his adult life as a circus
acrobat, entertaining thou-
sands in the United States
and Canada, but after suffer-
ing a stroke at the age of forty
four, in 1993, he decided to
put his story down on paper.
This book and those that
will follow encompass not
only ten years of Bovee's life
but contain stories told to him
by old time performers from
the 20's, 30, and 40s. Those
stories are living history not
found in any books until now.
True to his style of drive
and determination, Jim re-
sumed his performing only
two years after his stroke


and, although no longer per-
forming professionally, he
still practices on a regular
basis at his home in Glendale,
where he has lived since
1983.

Thank You
The family the late Deacon
Lonnie Robinson Sr, wish to
sincerely thank everyone.
Perhaps you sent a lovely
card,
Or sat quietly in a chair.
Perhaps you sent
a floral piece,
If so, we saw it there.
Perhaps you spoke the
kindest words,
As any friend, could say.
Perhaps you were not there
at all,
But just thought
of us all day.
Whatever you did to console
our hearts,
We thank you so much,
whatever the part.

In everything give thanks:
for this is the will of God in
Christ Jesus concerning
you.
1 Thessalonians 5:18

Thank you for your
continuing prayers, visits,
telephone calls, words of
comfort and guidance.

O Jerusalem
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC

One of my greatest delights was the privilege of
going to Israel. I had preconceived notions of what
Gethsemene, Gabatha, and Golgotha looked like.
Only, I viewed them through western eyes-not any
more.
As we approach our third week into Easter I am
reminded of the recent trip to Israel. The call of the
disciples was almost a re-calling to me as I was re-
minded of the words of Jesus to Peter, "follow Me and
I will make you to become fishers of men."
We are living in troubled times. People are want-
ing more from God and that is why we must re-hear
the call to action. My question to you is this-do you
pray for the lost in your family, community, and wher-
ever you may labor. Jesus is still calling-will you
listen?
Sunday morning 10a.m; WZEP radio 7:05-7:30 Sun-
day morning. Come grow with us!

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 6, 2006


Douglass: an Olympic champion


By JOHNNIE KAY EAL UM
"There she is. There is my
friend," she exclaims as she
waits in line; Eventually, she
will make her way to the gate
to hand me her football ticket
and I am always greeted by
her never-ending supply of
smiles and hugs. We will joke
and cut up for a brief moment
but then she will have to tell
me about her latest competi-
tion. Yes, she enjoys attend-
ing athletic events in Walton
County and she is very famil-
iar with the price of winning
because this fine lady is also
an athlete. More so, Patty


Douglass, is an Olympic
champion.
Patty's mother, Madeline,
was her biggest supporter
when she began competing
as a teenager in track and
basketball and eventually
took up the sport of bowling
as well. Her mother would
take her to local events and
when Patty would advance to
the state level, her mother
would be the first to head her
car in the direction that
Patty needed to travel. For
years, she was also one of the
coaches. Even though her
mother is now unable to at-
tend events due to health


PATTY DOUGLASS


reasons, she is there every
morning as Patty awakes to
train and every evening
when she is off and running
again. For nearly 30 years,
Patty's daily routine has con-
sisted of stretches and endur-
ance exercises to prepare her
muscles for the grueling mile
run.
You see, Patty is not your
typical athlete. Patty is a
member of the Walton
County Special Olympics
Team. She has won awards
for countless events but
mostly basketball, bowling,
and track..I was introduced
to Patty about 10 years ago
through my job as the Anchor
Club sponsor at Walton High
School. The Anchor Club is a
community service organiza-
tion for teenage girls that has
assisted with the local Spe-
cial Olympics for several
years. Therefore, the club has
become an intricate part of
the programs, and Patty ex-
pects us to always be in at-
tendance at her local compe-
titions. She always tries to
find me in the crowd as she
arrives for the events, and
she will always ask, "Did
your girls comes today?" And
as I explain that they
wouldn't miss it for the
world, her enthusiasm be-
cdmes contagious. One by one
she will find her favorite An-
chors to update them on what
she will be competing in that
day.
Of all the track events
Patty participates in, the
mile run is Patty's, favorite.
While basketball and bowl-
ing are a team event, the mile
run is something that Patty
takes the most pride in;


Walton High tennis results


therefore, she trains daily for
this event. Every year at ev-
ery competition, you will see
her stretching on the side-
lines just as any athlete
should and as she makes her
way around the track she will
occasionally look over to see
if we are there to cheer her
on. You can hear supporters
from all around the track
yelling, "Come on, Patty. You
can do it, Patty. Way to go,
Patty!" As she passes by, you
can see the competitive de-
termination in her face. You
can see the determination
she has to make us proud.
When I asked her sister,
Kathy, about the number of
Patty's trophies and medals,
she replied, "She has won so
many medals that we had to
store them in about 3 or 4
duffel bags and her room is
wall-to-wall trophies."
Can you imagine the pride
her brother and sister must
feel as they stand in their.
sister's room and observe the
countless number of ribbons,
the endless number of tro-
phies, and the limitless num-
ber of bronze, silver and gold
medals? Can you imagine the
pride that her mother must
feel every time Patty comes
home and exclaims; "Look
what I won again, mom?" I
can. I can picture her mother
smiling as Patty enters the
room and I can picture her
mothers eyes welling up with
tears as she shares in her
daughter's accomplishments
and her latest triumphs. I
can picture this because I,
too, am proud of Patty's
achievements, and the deter-
mination that has made this
athlete a champion.

2005-06 WC Press Club boys basketball awards


In one of the tightest bal-
lots in boys basketball in
Press Club history, Darryl
McGhee edged teammate
Jeremy Dunbar by one point
to grab Player of the Year
honors in the Walton County
Press Club's Area Five All-
Area Team.
Five seniors compose this
season's All-Area First Team
as Freeport's Howard
Dawson and Zach Chamblee
along with Paxton's Danny
Campbell join McGhee and
Dunbar on the first unit as
chosen by the five-member
Press Club panel.
Freeport's Howard
Dawson captured the Most
Valuable Player Award, cho-
sen for the player who would
be the most crucial element
to helping lead a team to vic-
tory thru all-around perfor-
mance.
Darryl McGhee's Player of
the Year Award showcases an

sonville Ribault.
Josh Nettles picked up the
Sixth Man Award for his
strong performance off the
bench in final weeks of the
season as he provided the
sparkplug for Walton's of-
fense when it struggled in key
games late in the year.
Sam Petty grabs the New-
comer of the Year Award as
he helped South Walton sur-
vive injuries and defections
with solid overall play for a
freshman.
Jerry Hester takes home
our Coach of the Year Award
for getting Walton within a
made 3-pointer of a trip to
Lakeland. Walton's 23-7
campaign was the culmina-
tion of four years of hard work
for a program that was 1-21
on the hardwood the year be-
fore Hester's arrival.

Looking at the first team
unit, McGhee averaged 11.4
points per game while often
grabbing double-digit re-
bounds for Walton. His shot-
blocking ability gave Walton


of competition within the
near future. The Anchor
Club also included face paint-
ing and a fun walk as part of
the day's events.
Ramona Satterwhite, Spe-
cial Olympics coordinator,
expresses her sincere appre-
ciation to Craig Reynolds and
Rose Randolph as they
worked jointly with the An-
chor Club to provide a suc-


an added weapon that shoot-
ing guard Jeremy Dunbar
turned into a 15.2 points per
game average. Dunbar, who
played the point guard role
early in the season, was often
the workhorse of the Walton
offense, draining key 3-point-
ers and grabbing loose balls
that got the Braves offense off
to the races.
Howard Dawson did it all
at Freeport. Dawson finished
as the Area Five's leading
scorer with 16.1 points per
game while working from
both the inside and outside.
Dawson, key to Freeport's 23-
6 record, was helped out by
forward Zach Chamblee, who
tallied 11.3 points per game
while keeping defenses on
their heels with his aggres-
sive slashing to the basket.
Danny Campbell quietly led
Paxton in scoring at 12.8
points per game while provid-
ing a senior presence for a
young Bobcats squad.
The Second Team unit is
led by Ponce de Leon's Cody
Carroll, who fought thru in-


juries to lead the Pirates in
scoring with 14.8 points per
game. Walton's Ashton
Campbell had a hot-and-cold
season, but averaged 12.8
points per game and could be
the best outside shooter in the
area when he was on. J.
Leonard made the unit as a
tenacious rebounder who
played solid defense and
could score when needed; as
did Brigham Chamblee, who
helped brother Zach give
Head Coach David Burke's
Freeport squad a solid front-
court scoring and rebounding
duo. PDL"s Dylan Skinner
rounds out the second group
with a blue-collar work ethic
that saw the junior forward
average 10 points per game
in the paint, often against
much taller opponents.
PDL's Skinner and Carroll
will be the only two players
returning to the high school
basketball court next season
as the other eight players on
the All-Area squad are all se-
niors.

take part in the inaugural
"Florida Panhandle Shoot-
out" all-star basketball game
on Friday, April 21, at the
University of Wesk, Florida.

- lst ttwoout ofithree go mes to
.North Carolina over the
: weekend to drop to 27-4 over-
all and 9-3 in the ACC. The
Seminoles could easily have
taken the series, but two er-
rors in the ninth inning on
Saturday allowed the
Tarheels to rally from a one-
run deficit to steal a. win.
FSU will travel to Boston to
play Boston College in the
first three-game series in con-
ference play between the two
schools this weekend. The
ACC is trying to work out a
plan to plan the ACC baseball
tournament at Fenway Park
at some point in the future.
The,Okaloosa-Walton Col-
lege baseball and softball
teams continue to struggle as


both suffered losses over the
weekend in Panhandle Con-
ference play. The Raiders
baseball team has dropped
five straight games after
Chipola .swept a series with
OWC. The baseball squad is
..27-12 overall, but only 5-7 in
conference play. The Lady
Raiders softball team is not
havr-ag any better luck as
they lost a pair of games to
Tallahassee Community Col-
lege on Saturday. The Lady
Raiders are 34-130overal,-but
just 3-7 i i.' inference play.
Both squads w11 continue an
uphill battle to get back into
state playoff contention this
weekend.
The Florida Gators base-
ball team dropped two of
three games to Vanderbilt in
Gainesville this past week-
end. Florida is struggling this
season after coming off a
berth in the national cham-
pionship series in 2005. The
Gators are 19-13 overall but
just 3-6 in SEC play. It doesn't
get any easier for the Gators
as, they travel to Kentucky
this weekend. The Wildcats
are off to one of their best
starts on the diamond in re-
cent years with a.22-7 over-
all record.


By CHUCK HINSON
It is all in the wishbook for
a couple of lawmakers who
hope to get drug testing done
in high schools across the
state. That means from the
quarterback to the pitcher
and from the forward to the
mascot, they must all give a
little to qualify to participate
in high school athletic pro-
grams.
It is not marijuana, cocaine
or pills that is causing the
concerns, it is the use of ste-
roids that have lawmakers
and legal shakers concerned.
Miami Republican Repre-
sentative Marcelo Llorente
and Sen. Durell Peaden Jr.,
are both pushing for the laws
to be passed. It would re-
quire anyone that is associ-
ated with a school affiliated
or school sponsored athletic
program to be randomley
drug tested.
Both have filed for a three-
year, $3 million program to
randomley test the athletes.
It would be for male and fe-
male students and would
center mostly on steroids, but
would not be limited to just
that one drug.
Despite many who feel

BCC to decide on new



CR-30A recommendations


by Dotty Nist
CR-30A is an important
and scenic beach route that
is under stress, with more to
come with future develop-
ment.
What's in store for the
county road from a traffic
planning standpoint? New
recommendations are on the
table, and a decision on those
is expected this month.
On March 27, Debbie
Dantin of Genesis Group pre-
sented final recommenda-
tions from a year-long traffic
study of CR-30A that had.
been commissioned by the
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC).
The study encompassed an
evaluation of the roadway
and called for improvements
and standards to enhafice
safety, traffic operations, and
amenities for various trans-.


pdrtation modes, with an
emphasis on preserving aes-
thetics and mobility.
Planning took place in light
of what was important to
people living and traveling
on CR-30A. Consultants con-
ducted over 900 personal sur-
veys to get guidance on goals
of the public with regard to
the roadway.
Dantin projected that over
20,000 cars per day will be'
added to those now using the
roadway.
Recommendations for
short-term improvements
included: either traffic sig-
nals or roundabout at the
CR-283 and CR-395 intersec-
tions; evaluation of the need
for a signal at the CR-393
intersection; the construction
of a total of six turn lanes at
intersections with Main Park
Road. Somerset Bridge Road,
North/South Gulf Drive, and


DEBBIE DANTIN of Genesis presented final traffic study
recommendations for CR-30A to the Walton County Board.of
County Conmmissioners on March 27. The commissioners are
scheduled to consider,the adoption of the recommendations
in public session onApril 11.


Lakewood Drive; standard-
ization and upgrading of road
signs and pavement mark-
ings; safety improvements to
intersections with limited
visibility; upgrades to the
bike/pedestrain trail; and the
designation of CR-30A as a
"constrained facility" in order
to encourage quality develop-
ment while allowing for
transportation enhance-
ments and protection of the
road's scenic status.
Dantin explained that the
"constrained facility" desig-
nation would support current
efforts to get CR-30A on the
state scenic roadways list,
which would in turn open up
avenues for funding of road
improvements through grant
programs.
She noted that to improve
traffic mobility over time, it
will be necessary to address
two critical components, Im-
proved connectivity between
properties and developments
along the roadway and "a
better mix of land uses."
Among thestudy's long-
term recommendations were
implementation of new de-
sign standards and land de-
velopment code require-
ments, strict enforcement of
development regulations and
comprehensive plan policies,
and consideration of putting
a new north-south and/or
parallel roadway in place be-
tween CR-395 and
WaterSound Parkway.
Dantin estimated the cost
of the latter endeavor at $8
to $9 million.
While consideration of
roundabouts at intersections
has been controversial,
Dantin said these road fea-
tures handle much more traf-
fic as compared with traffic
lights. She said that between
14,000 ard 20,000 vehicles
per day can be accommo-
dated with each roundabout.
The recommendations call
for the removal of on-street
parking in areas such as Sea-
side and in some parts of
Seagrove, and for the exten-
sion of the bike-pedestrian


trail all the way to U.S. 98,
along with addressing sprin-
kler issues in connection
with the trail.
The consultants favor bike-
pedestrian trails on both
sides of the road, not just one
side as currently exists in
some areas. While state stan-
dards call for a 12-foot width
on multi-use trails, Dantin
said that in her judgment,
eight feet would "ultimately
serve."
In instances of environ-
mental issues, she recom-
mended that preservation of
the environment should take
priority.
Under the recommenda-
tions, golf carts would still be
'prohibited from CR-30A in
accordance with county stan-
dards.
Cost for the short-term im-
prov.ements is estimated at
about $11 million, with long-
term improvements to cost
approximately $52 million,
yielding at total of about $63
million for all the recom-
mended improvements.
About $9.6 million of this
amount h"as already been
approved for some of the im-
provements as part ofWalton
County's capital improve-
ment plan.
Dantin noted that some of
the cost can also be funded
by developer's as part of the
"alternate fair share" proce-
dure that is now in place as
part of the approval process
for nevy developments that
will add traffic to roadways.
The. recommendations, in-
cluding related accompany-
ing language changes pro-
Sposed for the county's growth
management documents,
will be considered for adop-
tion in public session at the
April 11 BCC meeting, The
meeting will begin 4 p.m. and
will take place at the South
Walton Courthouse Annex.

the study and recommenda-
tions can be accessed on the

Timpoochee Trails repairs slated,


ordinance enforcement remains a problem


by Leah Stratmann.
Members of the Friends of
the Timpoochee'Trail, the 18
and a half-mile multi-use
path winding along CR30A,
have successfully lobbied the
Board of County Commis-
sioners and Public Works
Department into action.
Work was scheduled to begin
on repairing the trail on April
3.
Public works deputy direc-
tor Ryan Douglas met with
contractor Gum Creek to dis-
cuss the work. In September
2005, Douglas walked the
path marking each and every
area needing attention. In
the intervening seven
months, even more areas
were deteriorating, so Dou-
glas remarked the path on
March 28.
"There.were about 10 more
things added to the original
markings of September 2005.
Most of the spots that were
remarked are spots that are


likely to be fixed by the util-
ity company, but if they are
not fixed by Regional Utili-
ties, we will fix them," Dou-
glas said. The repair work
will begin on the east end of
the path and proceed west
until all areas have been
fixed.
Gum Creek was awarded
the contract for $150,000 to
repair the path. "For a con-
tractor, this is an annoying
project because there is a
piece here and a piece there
to be repaired. We will be in
contact with them on a day-
to-day basis," Douglas noted.
Although the contractor has
60 days to complete the work,
Douglas estimates will be
finished in about ,.,. ays.
The contract for the rou-
tine and regular mainte-
nance is expected to be
awarded this week Douglas
said. "We plan on policing the
path in a little better fashion
than we have. When we


award the maintenance con-
tract, they will help us moni-
tor for future repairs," he
said.
Funds for repairing the
path were taken from the
recreational plat fees paid by
developers and funds for
maintenance will come from
the same source.
Another chronic complaint
leveled by users of the path
is the negligence of the
Sheriff's Department to
ticket vehicles parked in the
path. The only vehicles per-
mitted on the path for short
periods are utility trucks
that may need to park close
*to where they are making re-
pairs, but it is not infrequent
to see personal vehicles and
construction vehicles parked
on the path in violation of
county ordinances.
On March 23, county ad-
ministrator Ronnie Bell
wrote the following letter to
Sheriff Ralph Johnson:


"On March 14, 2006, the
County Commission received
a presentation from Mr. Dan
McClary, a resident of South
Walton that uses arid travels
the multi-use paths of South
Walton on a daily basis. Mr.
McClary expressed his con-
cern with the condition of the
bike paths, safety concerns
and enforcement of ordi-
nances pertaining to the
multi-use bike paths.
The commission listened to
McClary's concerns and pre-,
sentation and is in the pro-
cess of addressing several of
the issues he presented. The
commission is requesting
your assistance in address-
ing some of the safety con-
cerns identified by asking
your patrol personnel to en-
force the ordinances. As you
are aware, these ordinances
address parking along con-
struction sites and what is al-

LOCAL SURFER Chris Page was recently honored for two
water rescues on the Walton County beaches. On behalf of the
South Walton Fire District (SWFD,) Deputly Chief Sean
Hughes presented Page with an honorary certificate and an
official lifeguard hat on April 3. The SWFD is responsible for
Walton County's first lifeguard program, a pilot program
which got started about a month ago at six regional beach
accesses. Hughes revealed that Page had rescued two swim-
mers in trouble within the past month by putting them on.
his surfboard and bringing them back to shore. One of those
individuals was in a very serious situation, Hughes said. In
a way the award was a tribute the life saving contributions
of surfers in general. "We'll never know how many lives have
been saved by surfers," Hughes commented, adding that surf-
ers "don't even thing about it," but automatically help swim-
mers in trouble and then nonchalantly go back to their surf-
ing.




Coastal dune lake


status unclear


by Leah Stratmann
One single issue took al-
most two hours of discussion
at the last Coastal Dune
Lake Advisory Board
(CDLAB) meeting and that
issue was whether or not a
small body of water known
locally as Little Deer Lake is
or is not a coastal dune lake.
The question arose when
the Board of County Com-
missioners (BCC) asked Billy
McKee, the environmental
planning manager to seek
the opinion of the CDLAB
about a body of water located
close enough to Deer Lake to
cause flow between the two
bodies of water after a rain.
At stake is the Peninsula
Pointe development, a 13-
home project located near
Deer Lake.
Peninsula Pointe is cur-'
rently under review by the
BCC. Dean Burgis, an engi-
neer with Emerald Coast As-
sociates (ECA), a developer's
rep firm, said the developer
had done the proper due dili-
gence for the project and it
had been decided that coastal
dune lake criteria status did
not apply to this particular
body of water and the project
had been approved by the
Planning Commission and
moved up for BCC approval.
However, between the
meetings of those two gov-
erning boards, a significant
rain fell in the area and dur-
ing an inspection of Little
Deer Lake, it was noted there
was flow between Little Deer
Lake and Deer Lake. Several
days later, the flow was gone.
It was observed that a con-
tour line runs between the
two lakes keeping the bodies
of water separate mostof the
time. The BCC asked that
the area be monitored and for
McKee come before the
CDLAB for an opinion as to


the status of Little Deer
Lake.
Russell Burge performed a
biological assessment of the
body of water located to the
west of Deer Lake on behalf
of ECA on March 14. At that
time Burge noted the natu-
ral 5-foot topographical di-
vide had been bisected by
shovel.
CDLAB board member
Earl Day said, "As of my un-
derstanding of a coastal dune
lake, Little Deer Lake is not
a coastal dune lake. From
what I know, Little Deer
Lake does not qualify as a
,coastal dune lake."
Day's remarks were some-
what refuted by John Bente
of the Florida Park Depart-
ment who noted that a 1941
photo of the area clearly
shows four bodies of water in
the area and said that water
gets in the way of develop-
ment and there has been a,
lot of ditching of wetlands to
remove water. "As a natural
system, each one of these
things is as much a coastal
dune lake as the next one,"
Bente said.
Bente said the only way to
find the ditch is to walk down
the upland ridge."A ditch cre-
ates jurisdiction," Bente said.
"The property line for the
park service is quite near. It
has probably stayed isolated
for a very long time, but if you
look at the shoreline in front
of the dunes, I can imagine
this was all one system at one
time. My opinion is that if it
walks like a duck and quacks
like a duck..."
Phillip Ellis of the
Choctawhatchee Basin Au-
thority (CBA) said this is a
bigger issue than just this
one tributary. "We (the CBA}

"The western Walton
County beach restoration
project is moving along rap-
idly with more than 2,330
feet of beach completed in the
past week," reported Brad
Pickel, beach management
director for the South Walton
Tourist Development Coun-
cil.
Pickel said this represents
26 percent of the total project
and more than one-third of
the Walton County portion.
About five miles of beach on
the west end of Walton
County and two miles of ad-
joining beach in the city of
Destin are being restored.
Pickel said that currently
construction is proceeding
eastward near the Crescent
condominium in Miramar
Beach and is to continue this
week past the Huntington by
the Sea condominium,
Shipwwatch subdivision, and
Edgewater condominium,
approaching Norwood Drive.
Last week construction
had been anticipated to reach
the Sandtrap Road beach ac-
cess area by week's end, an
area where several
homeowners had opposed the
restoration of the beachfront
south of their homes. How-
ever, Pickel said that due to
a decision of the project con-


tractor, construction did not
move into that area but is
proceeding eastward instead
for the time being. The Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners directed for
construction to include the
beach south of the homes
owned by the opponents of
the project, in the interest of
storm protection and the
structural integrity of the
project.
Barring mechanical diffi-
culties or inclement weather,
construction is expected to.
continue eastward during
the week of April 10 past
Norwood Drive and Mainsail
Condominium to Sandtrap
Road. Construction is then to


proceed westward from the
Crescent toward Avalon
Dunes.
During the week of April
17, the project is scheduled
to continue westward past
Avalon Dunes, the
Beachhouse condominium
andAmalfi Coast,nearing the
Surfside beach area.
During the week of April
24, construction is to con-
tinue westward pastthe
beach at Surfside and on to
the Seascape Resort beach
area.

mation on the beach restora-
tion is available on line at

GENERAL WATER SAVING TIPS

Never pour w after down the drain when there may be another use
for it such as watering a plant or garden.

Place a bucket in the shower to catch excess water, and use it to
water plants. The same technique can be used w hen washing
dishes or vegetabless in the sink.

In the show\ er, turn the water on to get \ et; turn it off to lather up:
then back on to rinse off. Repeat when washing your hair.

*Kitchen sink disposals require lots of water to operate properly.
Start a compost pile as an alternate method of disposing of food
\ aste, instead of using a garbage disposal. Garbage disposals also
-can add 50% to the volume of solids in septic tanks, which can
lead to malfunctions and maintenance problems.

If you ha e a well at home. check \ our pump periodically. Listen
to hear if the pump kicks on and off w while water is not being used.
If it does, you have a leak.


A\oid flushing the toilet unnecessarily Dispose of tissues, insects
and other similar waste in the trash, rather than the toilet.


Avoid purchasing recreational v water to s \\ which require a con-
Sstant stream of water.

Support efforts and programs that create a concern for w after
conservation among tourists and visitors to our state. Make sure
Vour \ visitors understand the need for. and the benefits of. water
conser\ action.

Try to do one thing each daN that will result in saying \ after.
Don't worn if the saving are minimal because e\ eC\ drop
counts!

CORRECTION
In the March 30 edition of the Beach Breeze, "BCC votes
* to take case to Supreme Court," we incorrectly reported that
a final decision was made to take the beach access case to
the Florida Supreme Court, following the discussion of the
item. This is an issue that the BCC is expected to continue
to consider, but no final decision has yet been made. We
regret any confusion or inconvenience this may have caused.


No, you don't have to prepare your tax return this year.
Let me prepare it for you. I'll find every deduction and
credit the law allows. You'll pay the lowest tax possible
without a lot of work and worry.

lowed on the multi-use paths.
Currently, vehicles parking
along the multi-use paths
cause a safety hazard for the
citizens utilizing these
paths."
The issue of sheriff's depu-
ties ignoring vehicles in vio-
lation has been particularly
frustrating to McClary. Ac-
cording to an email sent to
the newspaper, he has left
two messages with Sgt.
Preston and sent an email to
the sheriff's office in an effort
to meet with sheriff's office
officials and discuss the con-



LAKE from front
coastal dune lake intention-
ally vague when designing
the comprehensive code, but
I think this body of water de-
serves protection. The mis-
take we have been making is
there is a connection contrib-
uting to the water quality of
Deer Lake and a tributary
should be defined as any body
of water affecting the dune
lake."
Burgis noted work has al-
ready been done on the basis
that Little Deer Lake is not a
coastal dune lake and that
Peninsula Pointe will prob-
ably be the last development
on the lake. "We were asked
to get guidance from the
CDLAB, but we don't think it
is a coastal dune lake." Burgis
noted the development has
installed an on-site storm
water system.
Mark Grady a resident of
the area, addressed the board
saying, "we who live there
permanently see there is a
rich and vibrant wildlife
there. All kinds of bird life
and fish reside in the (Little
Deer} lake. This is a rich-in-
nature environment that de-
serves protection in and of it-
self, not just as a tributary to
Deer Lake. There are cur-
rents in this body of water.
Right now the outflow from
Deer Lake is much smaller
than the connection between
the tW8 likes. The connection
is not just a rain event. There
is much historical evidence
that people have seen the con-
nection all along," he con-
cluded.

South Walton Community
Council director Anita Page
suggested the board look for-
ward instead of backward
and not use the existing Deer
Lake development as a
benchmark for Peninsula
Pointe. She asked what the
average setback was for each
home in the planned develop-
ment and suggested the de-
veloper be asked to move the
setbacks to exceed the 25-foot
legal wetland setback.
"What impacts one will im-
pact the other. Clearly Deer
Lake is a coastal dune lake
and they are becoming in-
creasingly imperiled. This is
an opportunity for a devel-
oper to show they care by vol-
untarily moving them much
further than 25-feet," she
said. Building standards for
areas around a coastal dune
lake call for a minimum set-
back of 100-feet.
The site plan for the devel-
opment shows three lots that
would be difficult to move fur-
ther back than 25-feet.
McKee said the informa-
tion he needed to take back
to the BCC covered three
points: Is the body of water
in question a coastal dune
lake? If it is, can a reduced
setback be worked out, per-
haps as much as 50-feet per
lot? Does this body of water
require special protection?
CDLAB chairman Mike
D'Autilia made a motion that
the board should look at all
existing lakes like this and
.come up with rules and offi-
cial setback guidelines. The


motion was passed.
Further the board voted
unanimously to inform the
BCC to allow Peninsula
Pointe to proceed provided
the setback on the three prob-
lem lots is at least 35-feet and
buffered with natural vegeta-
tion. The minimum setback
on the other 10 lots should be
at least 50-feet, but even
greater if possible and that
homebuilders be advised it
would be best to construct all
homes in this project on pil-
ings rather than slabs.


cerns of path users, but no
one has returned a phone call
or sent an email response.
McClary further stated: I
mentioned in an email to
Ronnie {Bell} last week that
a huge hole developed in the


CR 283 path about one-quar-
ter mile north of CR30A. The
path is in imminent danger
of collapsing and someone
could be seriously hurt. I did
not receive a response from
him.
