DeFuniak Springs council'


discusses fire recovery costs


By LEIGH STRICKLAND

Cost recovery for fire re-
sponse was discussed at
great length at Monday's
meeting of the DeFuniak
Springs City Council.
Fire departments are au-
thorized by Florida statutes
to recover costs incurred by
responding to structure fires
and automobile accidents.
DeFuniak Springs Fire
Chief Brian Col.\ explained
that only insured parties are
billed.
This raised the issue of
fairness, as pe~o;pl w-ithiiut
insurance are not billed. It
also raised questions about
the efficiency of going to the
trouble of colle':Lr. o so. s ll
an amount of money when
administration costs are fac-
tored in.


Coley estimated that the
fire department responds to
50 fires in a year, with about
60 percent of them being in-
sured. If fees were received
from these fires, the cost re-
covered would be $15,000 in
a year. This is very little in
comparison with, for ex-
ample, the cost of a new fire
truck, estimated by Coley to
be $250,000.
City Manager Kim
Presnell said that they must
look at various revenue
sources. This may include
government grant money.
In other council news,
Larry Laird, director of plan-
ning for the city, presented
two issues to the council.
The first was a request to
annex into the city limits a
piece of residential property
on Bob Sikes Road. The prop-


erty is adjacent to the city
limits on the south and the
east.
No arguments were given
as to why this property
should not be included in the
city limits, and a motion
passed to proceed in the pro-
cess of annexing the prop-
erty.
Laird next presented an
alley abandonment request
made by Dewey Weaver, a
resident of South Fourth
Street. If abandoned, the
property would be divided
among adjacent landowners.
Weaver said that thealley
runs alongside his property,
but is used primarily by an-
other family for access to
their home.
He argued that excessive
usage of the alley "creates a
safety issue" for his family as


well as causing "considerable
erosion."
The city does not use the
alley for utilities or garbage
pickup.
No one was present to ar-
gue against abandoning this
alley.
Councilman Don Harrison
mentioned wanting to hear
both sides of the issue and
moved that this be tabled
until all landowners involved
could be notified.
Because Councilman
James Huffman recused
himself from voting, the
council was split 2-2 on the
motion. The mayor voted in
favor, so the motion passed.
Laird will make notifica-
tion so that all affected land-
owners can be present for fu-

Morrison Springs


slated for


improvements


By LEIGH STRICKLAND
The project to restore
Morrison Springs is moving-
forward as County Commis-
sioner Scott Brannon and his
staff work toward finding
funding.
The project would see
Morrison Springs, located in
east central Walton County,
become a "multi-purpose rec-
reational center to be kept in
its natural state," said
Brannon.
Aide to the commissioner,
Susan Burgess, who works
very closely with the project,
said that the ideal plan is one
that will protect and pre-
serve the springs, making it
useful for citizens and visi-
tors alike. Their dream, she
said, is to have boat ramps, a
swim area, and a boardwalk
that would go up and over
the woods and nature.
According to Brannon,
plans also include adding a
two-story open-air pavilion
and picnics tables, and mak-
ing the Springs available as
a hands-on environmental
classroom.
The road leading to the
Springs would be paved and
.: a l~


a parking lot would be con-
structed.
Divers would have their
own area in which to enter
and exit the water and two
separate boat ramps would
be available for use.
No admission or other fees
would be charged, and main-
tenance would be through
the Department of Parks and
Recreation.
Permits have already been
applied for, so work on the
restoration may begin as
soon as the late summer of
this year.
The cost for the first phase
of the project is estimated at
$400,000. This, Brannon
said, is do things in the best
possible way.
In addition to county fund-
ing, a $200,000 allocation for
Morrison Springs has been
requested through State
Senator Durell Peaden, Word
will not come back on
whether this is granted un-
til after appropriations are
done at the end of May.
Brannon has also been

Freeport planning


board considers


new boat yard


INMEMORY OF CHELSEYSWORD, this young tree was
planted on the campus of Walton Middle School during a
poignant ceremony held Friday. see story 11A


By BEN GRAFTON
The Freeport Planning
Board met in its monthly
meeting at City Hall on April
5 to consider a proposal by
the Destin Fishermen's Co-
operative, a non-profit orga-
nization, for a boat yard on
the west side of Four Mile
Creek"in an area zoned
"heavy industrial" across
from the point where crushed
rock is presently unloaded
from barges.
The facility would provide
a yard for members'to per-
form annual maintenance
and a place where boats can
be inspected for certification.
The group provided a site
plan which includes a main-
tenance area with a paint
shed, a 900 square foot of-
fice some parking and a
storm water retention pond.
Chance Powell, project en-
gineer for the group, said
boats would be pulled from
the water using equipment
designed for the task and
moved to the maintenance
area for scheduled work. No
boat would be allowed to stay
on the property for more than
thirty days.


Chance said vertical clear-
ance of some forty feet would
be necessary because of the
size of some of the boats that
would come in for mainte-
nance. Because of-this, -a
large number of trees would
have to be removed to
clear access and mainte-
nance areas.
The tree removal require-
ment created a lively discus-
*sion among Board members
to clarify Comprehensive
Plan regulations and to de-
velop ideas for mitigation
that would improve the de-
velopers plan.
George Eller, president of
the Cooperative told Board
members that the facility
would initially create three
to five jobs and that the
group has a working agree-
ment with adjacent G & S.
boats.
He said there would be no
re-fueling facilities for the
boats and that fuel would be
not removed from them. He
said that the boat hulls
would be cleaned with a pres-
sure washing system and

Patrick pleads



to 10 years


By BRUCE COLLIER
Clifton Antonio Patrick,
originally charged with so-
licitation to commit murder
of a police officer, pled on
April 10 to a lesser charge of
resisting an officer with vio-
lence. Patrick also pled to a
total of five narcotics charges,
including possession of co-
caine and sale/manufacture/
delivery of a controlled sub-
stance.
Representing Patrick at
the plea hearing was Tim
Hilley, with assistant state
attorney Greg Anchors rep-
resenting the state.

Circuit Court Judge
Kelvin Wells sentenced
Patrick to five years on the
resisting charge, five years


on possession, and ten years
on the sale and delivery
charges:
The sentences are all to
run concurrent, for a total of
ten years, which Patrick will
serve with the Florida De-
partment of Corrections.
Patrick was arrested last
year and charged with solici-
tation to murder DeFuniak
Springs Police officer Derek
Walters.
Walters had no comment
to make on the plea, other
than to say "As long as he
pays for his crimes, it's all
right with me."
Anchors commented that
this was the sentence Patrick
was eligible to receive under
state sentencing guidelines
for these charges.


Glass shots: prom favors leave some shaken and stirred


By BRUCE COLLIER
A set of debatable prom
favors has at least one Free-
port High School parent
questioning school policy.

Jack Frost's daughter is a
student at Freeport High
School (FHS). Last weekend
was that school's annual jun-
ior prom.
As is tradition at prom
time, attendees received gifts
from the school. Such favors


are chosen by the school's
prom committee, with the
oversight of the principal,
who in turn answers to the
superintendent and board of
education.
This year, FHE -"udents
received two glasses, and a
lady's garter.
Frost describes the
glasses as a "double shot
glass" and "martini glass." He
wrote to FHS principal
Michael Murphy, objecting to


the use of "glassware de-
signed for the sole purpose of
serving an adult beverage...."
Frost said that Murphy has
not replied to his e-mails.
Frost would like to see a
"countywide policy" address-
ing this subject, "excluding
glassware whose predomi-
nant purpose is to serve al-
cohol."
Frost said that he plans to
make a presentation to the
school board, adding that he


has e-mailed Superinten-
dent of Schools Carlene
Anderson about the glasses.
Anna Stewart is the FHS
teacher who serves as a
prom sponsor. Stewart de-
clined to comment on Frost's
objections, except to say that
the glasses were "party
glasses," not shot glasses.

FHS principal Murphy
could not be reached for com-
ment. Anderson agreed with


Stewart's description of the
glasses as "party glasses,"
adding that they were or-
,fdered from a supply cata-
'logue routinely used by FHS
and other schools.
"I spoke to the principals
about the glasses. It was ap-
proved by the principals. I
had no problem with them,"
she said.

Anderson noted that
glasses have been ordered for


proms in the past, and that
this year's were "typical."
Frost would seem to agree
with this. According to him,
in previous years the prom-
glasses given out have been
."beer mugs" and "champagne
glasses."
"We can't stop kids from
drinking," said Frost, "we just
don't have to promote it."
"Obviously there's a dif-
ference in interpretation
here," said Anderson.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


PERSONAL COMMENTS


EDITOR'S COMMENT By RON KELLEY



Easter Sunday in the South


Easter Sunday will soon be upon us, and that brings back
fond memories of my childhood.
As a Southern boy, I can tell you that there was nothing
quite like Easter Sunday.
First of all, my folks believed in going to church all year
long, every Sunday and most Wednesday nights for 'prayer
meeting,' but especially for Easter Sunday. That was when
God got to see you wear your newest 'dress-up' clothes to
Sunday School and church.
For me, that meant a whole new Sunday outfit, includ-
ing coat, pants and shoes that I wasn't allowed to wear at
any other time. For girls, it meant white shoes, pink hair
ribbons and pouffy dresses with lots of ruffles.
Oh, it was a glorious sight to behold. Mothers were at
their prettiest in white shoes, purses and white gloves, a
new hat and a new spring dress. Fathers were decked out
in their best suits, their shoes were shined, and many sported
new ties.
Of course, people don't do that much anymore. These days,
you're more likely to see someone wearing blue jeans, loaf-
ers and floral short-sleeved shirts no jacket and certainly
no tie. Frankly, what some people will wear to church these
days would have shocked and dismayed my early church
family.
I know there are plenty of pastors that are glad to see the
pews filled and don't worry about how people dress and it's
also true that, so far, God Almighty has not expressed a
preference, but to me, Easter Sunday just isn't the same if
you don't dress up. Now I don't think you have to wear the
best there is, but you ought to wear the best you have.
It's a sign of maturity and respect. However, I recognize
that in many ways, I'm an idealist (which is to say, dino-
saur).
In any case, many things have changed. At my house,
before we changed out of our new clothes, we all had to pose
for pictures taken with an old Kodak Instamatic, hoping
that everyone's heads and feet would be in the same pic-
ture.
Then came the hunt for the Easter eggs. As a youngster,
this was great to me for lots of reasons. First, I got to help
color the eggs, which was usually a messy business but all
the more fun for a kid. Then came the hunt itself. The bet-
ter the eggs were hidden, the more fun it was to find them.
Parents, here's a tip. Count and number the eggs you're
hiding. Failure to find all the eggs can make for an extremely
unpleasant surprise weeks later, which is a story for an-
other day.




Editor:
I- would like to clear up'some misinformation that was
put in The Walton Sun paper-of April 1, 2006.
It seems that former Walton County Commissioner Gene
Ryan and Stephen Callahan, a member of the board on
"Council on Aging" are using the name "Wee Care Park" to
tell the people that would be a better place for the Senior
Center. I feel they don't want the people to know the true
use on the park on Walton Rd. north of DeFuniak Springs.
The name of this park is "Wee Care Children's Park" (Wee-
meaning small or tiny) and they leave out the word
"Childrens" to make people think it is an 'adult' or senior
park. But the word 'children's' tells what the park was built
for.
Ronnie Dowdy, development director for the boys & Girls
Clubs of the Emerald Coast said, "Boys & Girls want to get
into all areas. We can't impact kids in the north part of the
county because we don't have a facility up there."
The "Wee Care Children's Park" has 20 acres that a build-
,ing could be put on for the Boys & Girls to use. I understand
that the county has a 25,000 square foot building that has
never been assembled and could be used for this.
So let's get the Senior Center on College Avenue at the old
Warren Building and the old hospital grounds for the se-
nior walking park.
When we speak of tle "Wee Care Children's Park" please
use the full name.

After the Easter egg hunt, we .always had our big Sun-
day dinner. In the South, this actually means lunch, not
dinner, and it usually consisted of fried chicken, mashed
potatoes, half a dozen vegetables, cornbread and lots of fresh
iced-tea. We always gave thanks for our bountiful blessings
and never with any more sincerity than on Easter Sunday.
Following this delicious but heavy Southern feast, the
men would retire to the television in the family room for the
ball games, the women would gather.in the kitchen for the
cleanup and family gossip, and the kids headed outdoors to
play.,
For Southern Baptists (Methodists and Presbyterians,
too) Easter Sunday was just about heaven on earth, which
is fitting since it is a celebration about a risen Savior, re-
turning to paradise.
I hope your Easter Sunday is a blessing for you and your
family. Remember to rejoice and give thanks, for this is the
day the Lord hath made.




Editor:
After traveling across Israel from Mt. Hermon in the north,
where streams flow over falls on their, way to the sea of
Galilee, to the Red Sea in the soith where sea horses and
angel fish swim beneath parasails and tankers, I went from
Massada's ancient' mountain fortress above the Dead Sea,
stretching out to the north past Ei Gedi's mountain springs;
and wild goats, to Qumeron, where Biblical scrolls lay hid-
den for 19 centuries. I traveled to Jerusalem mentioned over
800 times in the Bible, where Abraham brought his son,
Issac, and God said he would bless him and all the families
of the earth would be blessed. It was there that the psalm-
ist David made his throne and Solomon built the first temple
to Jehovah. There, Jesus taught, prayed, healed and for-
gave sinners. There, he gave his life, for the sins of human-
ity and rose again from the dead. There, war raged with
Roman legions until Jerusalem was destroyed and its people
and temple treasures taken captive.
As an insult, the Romans changed the name from Judea
to Philistia, and for 190 decades, it remained small, except
in the hearts of an exiled and scattered people. Toward it's
lonely walls they turned in'prayer around the globe till the
Hollocoust shook them from the nations, and God breathed
nationhood into their hearts and niinds.
There, they were reborn as a nation, and, as a child, they
learned to speak the language of their fathers. Hebrew signs
fill the country along with songs of children and newspa-
pers in the language of the prophets.
Is it a miracle that in 58 years Israel has become a world
power with only six million citizens? Is it a miracle that the
barrenn land has become forests and fertile fields of fraits
vegetables and flowers.
In Liberty Bell Park, we listened to songs of praise to God
who gave the Ten Commandments to Israel, while children
played and young people danced in circles, and old men car-
ried scrolls of the (Bible) Torah. Men and women prayed at
the Western Wall, while others work or shop in the mall.
I hope they remember the special one, who said, "Our
Father in heaven, may Thy kingdom come..."

Editor:
This is in response to the letter from Mr. Brandon Rowell.
When I .arrived at Mr. Roeting side he took three agonal
respirations (lay terms: three dying breaths).then ceased
breathing. I began mouth to mouth after there were no more
spontaneous respirations.
Another bystander took his pulse and had her hand on
his chest to make sure my breaths were adequate. We con-
tinued this until the sheriff's deputy arrived with a bag and
mask. I frequently accessed his respirations and there were
no more spontaneous respiration.
Now for the rest of the story...
Three years ago this November, I had, my pelvis totally
crushed. I now have a metal pelvis and two metal plates in
my lower back. I cannot bend at the waist. The position I
was in was causing excrutiating pain and all I wanted and
needed was someone to relive me so I could re-postion my-
self.
I had two gentlemen approach me and identify themselves
as EMT's. When I asked them to give a few breathes they
both refused stating, "I don't have a mask? "Why even stop
if you're not willing to help?
I am a disabled-retired RN. My resume includes ACLS
certified and ACLS instructor, CPR and CPR instructor,
CCRN, EMT, with years of employment as ER and ICU
nurse, at facilities in Orlando, Atlanta, Augusta, GA, Wal-
ton County, etc.. I think I am qualified to assess a patient
and determine, if he or she needs mouth-to-mouth or chest
compressions.
To make a long story short why stop at a scene of an acci-
dent if you're not prepared to do what it takes?

County to assume

operation of DFS

recreation complex


"On April 25, the Walton
Board of County Commis-
sioners and the DeFuniak
Springs City Council will
have a ceremony where the
city will turn the DeFuniak
Springs Recreation Complex
pver to the county. The cer-
imony will begin at 3 pm at
'the complex on Gene Hurley
'Road. The public is cordially
invited to attend.
The Walton County Parks
and Recreation Department
Swill assume maintenance and
operation of the facility at
that time. The city will retain
ownership of the property.
Other instances of city
owned-courity operated ser-
vices include the Walton-De-
Funiak Library on Circle
Drive, and the Freeport
Branch Library on State
Road 20 in Freeport.
The facility on Gene
Hurley Road includes a foot-
ball field, a soccer field, walk-


COSTS F
ture discussion of the aban-
donment.
Two items were considered
regarding the Northwest
Florida League of Cities
(NWFLC), a regional munici-
pal government organization
with 48 member cities.
First, was nomination for
NWFLC's Official of the Year
award. Councilman Harrison
was considered, but declined
nomination as he is the up-
coming president of the orga-
nization.
Next, nomination for the
League's board of directors
was discussed. Harrison said
that, as an officer, he didn't
need to be nominated to the
board and asked that Coun-
cilman Huffman be consid-
ered.
A motion to nominate
Huffman if he agrees to be
nominated by the deadline of
April 19 was passed unani-
mously.
Also discussed were fees
for bounced checks received
by the city.
A motion to set a fee of $25
on all returned checks was
not passed.
The council instead voted
to set a fee of $25 for all re-
turned checks with a value of
up to $500, $100 for all re-
turned checks with a value of
up to $5,000, and $250 for all
returned checks with a value
over $5,000. They also re-
served the right'to use
relevent Florida state stat-
utes in the event of going to


ing trail, picnic pavilions, a
playground, restrooms, and
outdoor basketball court. It
will be open from dawn until
dusk each day. Walton Parks
and Recreation is planning a
summertime men's softball
league, and a.co-ed softball
league in tlhehilll, with fur-
ther details to be available
soon. With the exception of
such planned activity, all fa-
cilities will be available on a
first-come, first-served basis
to the general public.

"We're excited to get it,"
says Todd Murphy, the
county's recreation coordina-
tor. "It will allow us to pro-
vide many more services and
activities," he added.
Murphy can be reached at
892-8703 in the county Parks
and Recreation Department
for questions or suggestions
on recreation in Walton
County."..


'ROM FRONT
court.
The vote was 4-1, with
Councilman Mark Anderson
voting against this motion.
Renewal of a contract be-
tween the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation and
the city of DeFuniak Springs
was approved. This contract
tis for maintanence of road-
side areas, including mowing,
edging, sweeping, and litter
removal.
Te .council also approved
a budget amendment.
The council discussed ap-
pointing a committee that
would handle the negotiation
process with contractors who
bid on jobs for the city.
No decision was made, but
members of the council
seemed to be in favor of re-
maining more involved with
the process.
In closing remarks,
Presnell spoke briefly about
recreation. She mentioned
the possibility of including a
pool in plans for the city.
Councilman Huffman
called this a "golden opportu-
nity" and said that the school
board should be involved with
this idea, as the pool could be
used by all of the schools in
the county. This would allow
the schools to form swim
teams and to compete in
swim meets.
Though no formal action
was taken, the council indi-
cated that they would con-
sider this further in the fu-
ture.

Police warn of mail scam


DeFuniak Springs Police
Department (DFSPD) warns
citizens of a mail scam involv-
ing a fake lottery company.
In this scam, the intended
victim receives a letter in-
forming him that he has won
a lottery prize of $50,000. A
cashier's check is enclosed.
The victim is instructed to
take the check to his bank
and cash it, then wire funds
to another location.
The reason for this is that
the funds must first be wired
before the prize check can be
cleared and sent to the vic-


tim.
The victim's bank will wire
funds, only to learn shortly
thereafter that the original
check was worthless. The vic-
tim then owes the bank for
the wired funds.
The victim then receives
another letter and check,
stating that the original
"taxes" had been miscalcu-
lated, and that the new check
should be cashed and wired.
The second check is like-
wise worthless.
DFSPD warns that the


scam correspondence bears
the letterhead "International
Lottery, Inc." The company is
allegedly located in Australia,
Canada, and the USA.
. The letters list Lauren
Charles as Prize Director,
with Bianca Cruz and Flora
Griffin as the persons to
whom money is to be wired.
The worthless checks are
written on Santa Barbara
Bank and Trust. When inves-
tigators called the bank's
telephone number to request
a physical location, the phone
was hung up.


Walton County Sheriff warns of bible scam


Walton County Sheriff's
Office (WCSO) has learned of
a door-to-door fundraising
scam involving bibles.
According to WCSO Pub-
lic Information Officer Donna
D. Shank, a group of four ju-
veniles approached a number
of residences in the Oakwood
Lakes Boulevard and the
Lakeyard area. These inci-


dents occurred on April 1 and
2.
The juveniles, described as
two white females and two
white males, claimed to rep-
resent First Baptist Church
of Mossy Head.
SThe juveniles solicited
money to be used to purchase
and send bibles overseas to)
active duty members of the


military.
WCSO advises that this
was a scam, and that the ju-
veniles kept all of the money
collected.

Anyone who contributed
money to the juveniles is ad-
vised to contact Deputy
Wendy Hardage at WCSO,

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 13, 2006


Bronson to officially

open first Panhandle

inspection station


be demonstrated at the cer-
emony.
"Our ag law officers have
confiscated millions of dollars
worth of cocaine and mari-
juana, cash, stolen merchan-
dise such as electronics,


pharmaceuticals, and auto-
mobiles," Bronson said.
"They have also intercepted
spoiled food destined for res-
taurants. Often our inspec-
tion stations are the first line
of defense to catch criminals


and prevent drugs and other
contraband from being dis-
tributed."
Agricultural Law Enforce-
ment Director Darrell Liford
said the Department expects
nearly one million trucks to


pass through the area each
year, and has assigned 25 of-
ficers to man the station 24
hours a day. This is the first
new inspection station the
Department has built since
the 1960's.


Northwest Florida now has
a new layer of defense against
invasive pests and diseases,
as well as criminal activity
and potential acts of terror-
ism. On Wednesday, April 12
at 10 a.m., Florida Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson will hold a grand
opening ceremony of the
Department's newest inspec-
tion station, the first in the
Northwest Florida region.
The agriculture inspection
station is located off Inter-
state 10, just across the Ala-
bama state line, near
Pensacola. The Department
has 23 inspection stations lo-
cated along the Suwannee
and St. Mary rivers. The new-
est station is another compo-
nent in Bronson's strategy to
prevent agricultural pest and
diseases from being imported
into Florida, and adds an-
other layer of protection in
homeland security efforts.
"With its many seaports
and airports, Florida is espe-
cially vulnerable to the intro-
duction of pests and diseases
that could devastate our ag-
ricultural and livestock in-
dustries," Bronson said. "This
station will enhance our abil-
ity to prevent the importation
of plant and animals pests.
Thereby making our food
supply more secure.
I greatly appreciate the
support we have received


from the Governor, the Leg-
islature and the Florida De-
partment of Transportation
on this critical project."
Expected to be on hand for
the dedication are numerous
state representatives and
senators who helped secure
the funding for the inspection
station, and top officials from
the Florida Department of
Transportation, which over-
saw the construction of the
new facility in this joint ven-
ture. Also invited are officials
of the Florida Highway Pa-
trol, dignitaries from the city
of Pensacola and Escambia
County, and representatives
of the state of Alabama.
Law enforcement officers at
inspection stations routinely
inspect trucks traveling into
and out of Florida, looking
for anything that could
threaten agriculture, How-
ever, officers with the Depart-
ments' Office of Agricultural
Law Enforcement also rou-
tinely nab criminals attempt-
ing to transport stolen prop-
erty, illegal drugs, and other
contraband. In addition to K-
9 dog teams, the Depart-
ments state-of-the-art
gamma ray machines assist
in this effort by scanning a
semi-truck in a matter ofsec-
onds, giving, officers an im-
mediate view of what is lo-
cated inside, including hid-
den items. The machines will

Question: Why do I have to get a new license plate every five
years? Mine looks fine.

The facts:

Section 320.06(1)(b), Florida Statutes, requires five-year replacement of all
license plates. The replacement is necessary because license plates must be
fully reflective to ensure visibility for law enforcement purposes. The vendor of
the reflective sheeting, 3M Company, recommends replacement after five
years because the reflective sheeting shows reduced light reflection at night
after five years although the appearance during the day may appear to be
fine.

of Chelsey.


Sword remembered

at WMS ceremony


By RON KELLEY

The blue skies and warm
day belied the somber mood
of those gathered on the cam-
pus of Walton Middle School
to honor sixth-grade student
Chelsey Sword.
The 11-year-old was slain
on November 11, 2005 by her
father, Joseph Sword, who
also shot and wounded
Chelsey's mother, Leslie, be-
fore turning the gun on him-
self.
Last week, Leslie and a
host of family members were
on hand for the ceremony in
which a tree was planted and
dedicated to the child's
memory.
Principal Russell Hughes
opened the remarks by


fondly recalling young
Chelsey and her time spent
at the middle school. Both
faculty and students took to
the podium to remember the
popular young student.
Youth For Christ president
Regina Messer offered up a
prayer, while Whitney
Stafford read a poem in
Chelsey's honor. Sixth-grade
student council representa-
tive Charlie Stevenson also
spoke in warm remem-
brance.
Principal Hughes pre-
sented Sword with framed
school photographs of
Chelsey, donated free by the
photographer. Hughes also
gave her a school Halloween
photograph of Chelsey taken
just a few days before her
tragic death.
Physical education in-
structor Jackie Herring said
that Chelsey's locker had
been retired and sealed,
never to be used again.
The entire sixth-grade
class gathered for the cer-
emony, along with WMS fac-
ulty, staff and parents. The
crowd applauded warmly as
Chelsey's homeroom teacher,
Carlos Price, unveiled the
tree and marker.
Afterward, Principal
Russell Hughes, on behalf of
Leslie Sword and the family,
read a card of thanks to the
school, the children and the
community, expressing their
sincere thanks and grati-
tude.


DBPA VISIONING COMMITTEE meeting will be Thurs-
day, April 20, at noon, at the Citizens Services Office in the
College Avenue complex in DeFuniak Springs.

THE RED BAY COMMUNITY CENTER will help dye
your Easter eggs, Saturday morning beginning at 10:30 a.m.
The center will supply what is needed to make an egg of
beauty.
Just boil the number of eggs needed and join the center at
the community center.

"Napoleon,
An
Intimate
Portrait"
presents
the man
behind the
monument

By BRUCE COLLIER
Visitors to Tallahassee's
Museum of Florida History
have until the end of this
month to take an inside look
at the Emperor of the French,
in "Napoleon, an Intimate
Portrait."
More than just a collection
of maps and battle paintings,
the traveling exhibit at-
tempts to paint a more per-
sonal portrait of this remark-
able man, who inspired the
imagination, adulation, and
condemnation of his contem-
poraries, and of succeeding
generations.
Born in 1769 on the island
of Corsica, Napoleon
Bonaparte attended military
school in France and served
as an artillery officer in the
French Royal army.
The French Revolution,
which began in 1789, offered
the young man a chance to
rise swiftly in the ranks. A
general in his early 20s,
Bonaparte distinguished
himself in Italy and Egypt. In
1799, he seized control of the
French government, and was
proclaimed First Consul with
a lifetime term.
In 1804, First Consul
Bonaparte assumed the title
of Napoleon I, Emperor of the
French. Characteristically
dramatic, he crowned himself
in a highly theatrical cer-
emony in Paris's Notre Dame
cathedral.
A brilliant and charismatic
military leader, Napoleon
waged offensive and defen-
,ive war nearly non-stop
-tlhrduehouIt his reien. He eoi-'
quered all of Europe, failing
only to defeat Great Britain


ON CAMPAIGN IN FRANCE, painting of Napoleon and his generals in the field.


and Russia before his final
downfall in 1815 at the battle
of Waterloo.
Forced to abdicate, Napo-
leon was transported by the
British to the island of Saint
Helena in the south Atlantic,
where he died in 1821, two
months short of his 52nd
birthday.
A man who managed to
pack all that activity into 51-
odd years was obviously a
man of great energy and or-
ganization.
The exhibit is filled with
small personal items, each
illustrating a facet of the
emperor's personality and
administrative style.
Napoleon loved hot baths,
spending hours soaking in a
tub fitted with a writing desk.
The exhibit features bottles of
his favorite cologne, and
household accounts written
in his own sometimes hasty
handwriting.
Also on view are shirts,
trousers, stockings, even a
bandanna worn on Saint Hel-
ena while gardening in the
hot sun.
In a.case by itself is a rep-
lica of one of Napoleon's fa-
mous black hats. Napoleon's
ability to inspire his soldiers
by his mere presence was re-
marked upon by his enemy,
the Duke of Wellington
Wellington, who defeated
Napoleon at Waterloo, ob-
served that the sight of the
emperor's hat on the battle-
field was w6rtth rn additional
20,000 soldiers to the French.
In addition to reproduc-


tions of several famous paint-
ings and portraits, the exhibit
displays a map of Europe un-
der the French Empire in
1812.
Close inspection of the
map reveals a number of tiny
holes, reputedly from mark-
ing pins placed there by the
emperor.
Napoleon's fame is nearly
equalled by that of his first
wife and empress, Josephine

de Beauharnais. The exhibit
includes some personal ef-
fects and mementos of
Josephine, including a lock of
her hair, as well as an em-
broidered tapestry cloth,
decorated with bees.
The bee was Napoleon's
personal symbol, emphasiz-
ing his never-ending labor.
The cloth also bears an "N."

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 13, 2006


NAPOLEON

Visible just under the "N" is
the faint outline of a "J."
According to the museum
guide, when Napoleon di-
vorced Josephine, he had the
letter removed to save the
cost of embroidering another
tapestry.
Military mementos also
include a French soldier's
shako (hat) and Napoleon's
folding camp bed and canopy.
In addition to Napoleon,
the exhibit contains memora-
bilia from members of his
family and court, including
Marshals Murat, Marmont,
and Davoust, as well as for-
eign minister Talleyrand.
Several busts and paint-
ings adorn the walls, portray-
ing Napoleon at various
stages of his life, ranging
from a stylized Roman bust


From 12A

to a deathbed sketch reputed
to have been made by a Brit-
ish officer on Saint Helena.
The two greatest contrasts
come in a pair of portraits,
one reportedly done from life
shortly before Napoleon's
death, the other done some 10
years after his death.
The first shows Napoleon
with a drawn, thin face, worn
out by life in exile.
The second, shown also as
a banner outside the mu-
seum, is a more romanticized
portrait of the emperor star-
ing determinedly off into his-
tory.
Napoleon was one of the
first modern rulers to employ
painting, sculpture, and mu-
sic to "mass market" his im-
age to his empire and en-
emies.


As a result, the Napoleonic
era remains a rich source of
material for historical and
military speculation, as well
as dramatic fiction.
Beethoven is said to have


dedicated his Third Sym-
phony ("Eroica") to the First
Consi 1, only to scratch out
the dedication in anger when
see NAPOLEON 15A


PORTRAIT OUT OFROMANCE, painted after Napoleon's
death, shows classic hand-in-coat pose.

game box.





THE EMPEROR'S LAST DAYS, portrait of Napoleon in
exile.


April is Alcohol Awareness month


When many people think of
alcohol abusers, they pic-
tures teenagers sneaking
drinks before high school
football games or at unsuper-
vised parties. However, alco-
hol abuse is prevalent within
various demographic groups
in the United States. People
who abuse alcohol can be:
* College students who can
bing drink at local bars.
* Pregnant women who
drink and put their babies at
risk for Fetal Alcohol Syn-
drome.
* Professionals who drink
after a long day of work.
* Senior citizens who drink
out of loneliness.
In 2003, almost 23 percent
(54 million) of Americans
participated in binge drink-
ing within 30 days prior to
taking SAMHSA's National
Survey on Drug Use and
Health (NSDUH). In the
same year, about 21.6 million
adults abused alcohol or were
alcohol dependent.
To recognize the serious
problem of alcohol abuse,
April is designated "Alcohol
Awareness Month." April 8
marked the annual obser-
vance of National Alcohol


Screening Day (NASD).
There 'were different loca-
tions across the United
States, where people can be
screened-anonymously-to
find out if their drinking hab-
its may be risky. Individuals
who come into a screening
site will have the chance to
view an educational presen-
tation and pick up educa-
tional materials, such as a
questionnaire that screens
for risky drinking and depen-
dence. People had a chance
to meet one-on-one with a
health professional to discuss
any concerns. The screenings
were free and anonymous.
In 2005, more than 203,000
people took part in NASD ac-
tivities at more than 5,400
screening sites nationwide-
the largest NASD yet.
Warning Signs of Alco-
hol Abuse
If you answer "yes" to any
of the following questions,
you may have a problem with
alcohol:
* Do you drink alone when
you feel angry or sad?
* Does your drinking every
make you late for work?
* Does your drinking worry
your family?


* Do you ever drink after tell-
ing yourself you won't?
* Do you ever forget what you
did while drinking?
* Do you get headaches or
have a hangover after drink-
ing?

If you suspect that you
might haie a drinking prob-
lem, or you know someone
who abuses alcohol, contact
SAMHSA's National Clear-
inghouse for Alcohol and
Drug Information (NCADI)
at 1-800-729-6686 or find a
screening site.

2005 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report of the Town of Paxton

We are pleased to announce that our drinking water meets
all federal and state requirements.

We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water
and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water.
We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources.
We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is ground water from 2 wells. The wells draw from the
Floridan Aquifer. Because of the excellent quality of our water, the only treatment process required is chlorine for disinfection
purposes.

The Department of Environmental Protection has performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. These assessments were
conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. Potential sources of con-
tamination identified include underground petroleum storage tanks. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water
Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapo.

If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Crystal Warrington at (850) 834-2716.
We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regu-
larly scheduled meetings. They are held on second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 PM at Paxton Town Hall.

Town of Paxton routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regula-
tions. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December
31, 2005. Data obtained before Jan. 1, 2005 and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with
the laws, rules and regulations.

In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the
following definitions:

Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to
the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected
risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water sys-
tem must follow.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the.radioactivity in water.
"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (ug/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Maximum residual level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addi-
tion of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or
expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells.
As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases,
radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

'(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural
livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, indus-
trial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential
uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes
and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in
water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in
bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonable be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The
presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and
potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-
4791.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised
persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people
with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections.
These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate
means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe
Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

We at Town of Paxton would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and pro-
tect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the
information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed. ltc: April 14

Easter and Passover
By Charles Satterwhite, .
Pastor Freeport UMC
Easter has taken on special significance for me because of my recent trip to Israel, Masada, Qumran,
Tiberias, Bethany, Nazareth, Beth-lehem, Capernaum, Med, Red and Dead Sea, and other stops. I was
blessed to be gone ten days with Bishop Goodpaster.
I tell you, I will never be the same again. God's word will never be read the same way, and my worship :
has taken on a more significant meaning. In addition, I have discovered my Jewish heritage, as Paul
stated a "grafting in" is what I now can sense in my life. i -
Passover or Pesach is the most important feast celebrated by the Jews. In Exodus 12 the feast was to *
be observed for the Lord, as eternal decree shall you observe it." Of all of the Jewish holidays, Pesach
is the most commonly observed, even by otherwise non-observant Jews. Passover comes from the -
Hebrew Peh-Samech-Chet, meaning to pass through, pass over, exempt, or to spare. '
The name Pesach is also the name of the' sacrificial lamb that was made in the Temple. The holiday is j
referred to as Chag he-Aviv (the Spring Festival), Chag ha-Matzoth (the Festival of Matzahs), and DR. SATTERWHITE IS pictured kneeling,
Z'man Cherutenu (the Time of our Freedom). renewing baptisimal vows at the Jordan
Pesach means all leaven chametz is removed from homes. This commemorates the fact the Jews River
leaving Egypt were in a hurry, and did not have time to let their bread rise. It is also a symbolic way of
removing the "puffiness" (arrogance, pride) from one's own soul. Chametz included anything made
from the five major grains (wheat, rye, barley, oats, and spelt) that has been completely cooked within
18 minutes after coming in contact with water. Chametz cannot be eaten during Passover, nor fed to
pets or animals. Chametz must be disposed of, and all utensils must be disposed of, or sold to a non-Jew
(they can be re-purchased after Passover).
Pet's diets must be changed for the holiday, or sold to a non-Jew (to be re-purchased after the holiday).
The entire house is spot cleaned, and even the ovens that came in contact with food items were cleaned
with q-tips, and toothpicks. The morning before the meal, a thorough search is made for leaven.
Pesach lasts for seven days (eight outside of Israel). The first and last days of the holiday (first two S L R U lJB
and last two outside Israel) are days in which no labor is exacted. The text of Pesach is written in a book
called haggadah (the story of the Exodus). A Hebrew rhyme is said at the meal. "Kaddesh, Urechatz,
karpas Yachatz, Maggid, Rachtzah, Motzi, Matzah, Maror, Korech, Shulchan Orech, Tzafun, Barech,
Hallel, Nirtzah."
Kaddesh is sanctification-a blessing over wine in honor of the holiday. The wine is drunk, and a I
second glass poured. Urechatz-washing hands without a blessing, on preparation of eating the Karpas-
parsley dipped in salt water and eaten. The vegetable symbolizes the lowly origins of the Jewish people;
salt water symbolizes tears shed during slavery. Yachatz breaking of one of three matzahs. Maggid-
the story is told and the song Mah Nishtanah (Why is it different?) is sung. Rachtzah-washing the THE TOMB OF Lazarus is shown here. It i
hands with a blessing for eating matzah. Motzi-blessing over grain. Matzah-blessing and eating of a located in Betlhanj, the home of Mary and
bite of matzah. Martha.
Maror- bitter herbs, horseradish, or romaine lettuce. A symbol of slavery. The maror is dipped in a
mixture of nuts, apples, cinnamon, and wine to represent the mortar used to mix bricks during slavery.
Korech-the sandwich is eaten with matzah. Shulchan Orech: dinner, a festive meal is eaten.
Tzafun: The Afikomen, a, piece of matzah is eaten as desert-last food of the meal. -
Barech: grace after meals, third cup of wine poured, is prayed over and. drank. A fourth cup is poured
for Elijah. The door is opened for Elijah to come, and herald the Messiah's coming. Hallel-praises
from several Psalms are recited, and a last cup of wine is blessed and drunk.
Nirtzah-a simple statement that the seder is over and that the Messiah may return the following. -
year.
The arrival of this most.sacred holiday season for both Christian and Jew is such a close parallel '-
which occurred at exactly four o'clock p.m. On the night of Passover, the lamb was slain to atone for sin.
It was about the same time that Jesus said, "it is, finished," and died. As Jesus went through the Via
Doloroso, the trail of sorrows, there were several stations of the cross, where Jesus either was minis- :
tered to, or something significant happened on the way to be crucified.
The place of the pavement Gabbatha was so named, because this was where a prisoner was tried.
Jesus was beaten and mocked and willingly gave Himself for mankind. The unspeakable agony that '
Jesus faced was for all of humanity. It is interesting to note that Jesus did not open his mouth while .
being reviled. Isaiah likens him unto a lamb. John called him the Lamb of God that was to take away '
the sins of the world-all have sinned.
Gethsemene is where Jesus prayed. I have been inside of the Garden Tomb. The height is about three
feet, and that is why John had to stoop before entering. Each tomb had a "soul hole."A place for the soul
to depart after the third day. Jesus arose from the grave and was not in a hurry, because everything was GARDEN TOMB where Jesus prayed and
was later buried in Gethesemene.
folded neatly and placed upon the place where he lay.
Prayer was a must in the life of Jesus. In fact, no miracle took place without Jesus praying first. The.
disciples asked Jesus to teach them how to pray, and whatwe mistakenly refer to the "Lord'sprayer," is
actually the disciples' prayer, because Jesus did not have a need for repentance. -
Golgotha is where Jesus was crucified. It was called the place of the skull, because it resembles a
skull in its physical features. Jesus died for the sins of the world, and He does not ask us to be clean 4t .,
through any other means, except through His blood.
The one glaring difference between Pesach (Passover) and Easter is the repetition of the act itself.'
While the Jewish Messiah is yet to arrive, Jesus is set to come back for all who are Christians, Jews
and gentiles. The Passover lamb that is slain is for cleansing once a year. i
Jesus, the Lamb of God is the sacrifice once and for all, and there is no necessity for a repeat sacrifice.
Since He was the Lamb of God, without spot or blemish (having no earthly father), he alone cleanses,
and removes sin from mankind.
The eating of the unleavened bread, and drinking of wine is symbolic of the Last Supper in which
S. GOLGOTHA, OR PLAICE OF THE SKULL, where
instituted as an ordinance of the church, along with baptism. Jesus was crucified. It is called place of the skull,
Miqvah baths were for ceremonial cleansing, and baptism is a testimony of being cleansed from sin,
and entry into the Body of Christ.
The bitter herbs are also symbolic of man's sinful nature needing to be cleansed, our ,
past life without Jesus, and a remembrance of our humanity, and dependence upon God.
Breaking the niatzah represents our brokenness. Usually, a child hides it and the
parents have to find it and ransom it back. Jesus purchased mankind with His own
blood shed on the cross.
The Psalms are sung because the feast required all to worship. There is much to '1 -
celebrate! Jesus will 'Passover' man in judgement.

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

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? .'.

I Saw You There Lord.
A dream of the crucifixion
I saw you there Lord,
your precious blood running red!
When they whipped you,
I'd have given my life instead!
I heard you screaming,
a crown of thorns on your brow.
Mocking you they said,
"If you're a king, come down now."
S ... watched them hang you,
there on that rugged cross to die.
When they pierced your side,
dark stormy clouds filled the sky!
I felt your mother's pain,
when they placed you in that grave.
With tears in her eyes,
she tried very hard to be brave!
I .stood by your tomb,
an angel appeared from the sky.
He said you weren't there,
My heart jumped for joy in reply!
When you rose again
I sang that wondrous Easter Day
The old Rugged Cross
couldn't take my Saviour away!

Ashlee Stephens scored 22
points as the West girls squad
defeated the East 103-75 in
the Freedom Classic played
at Gulf Coast Community
College on Saturday.
Stephens, who will play for
Okaloosa-Walton next sea-
son, shared scoring honors
with Amy Drake of Niceville
who also scored 22 points for
the West squad. Paxton's Jes-
sica Fink added seven points
for the West squad which had
South Walton Head Coach
Kevin Craig as one of the
team's coaches. Ponce de
Leon's Tim Alford was ore of
the coaches for the East
squad. Catherine Tinsley

peared in the game for the
East but did not score.


The FSU baseball team
swept three games in the
Seminoles first-ever trip to
Boston College over the week-
end inACC play. FSU picked

squads only play each other
once a season in a 3-game se-
ries that alternates home
fields every other year.

the squad from Gainesville as
they travel to Knoxville to
face Tennessee in a three-
game set this weekend.

modified spring game in Tal-
lahassee. Defense was once
again the strong point as the
defense outscored the offense
23-12 in the scrimmage
event. Starting quarterback
Drew Weatherford threw
only one interception this
spring as the Seminoles fo-
cused on improving the run-
ning game. Unfortunately,
the running game produced
only one yard in 30 rushing
plays, a sign that either the
defense will again be domi-
nant, or that the offense is
going to struggle on the offen-
sive line again in 2006.

spring game

By CHUCK HINSON
Florida State rolled out the
red carpet to ,welcome
potential fans and Idng-
standing alumni at the an-
nual spring game in Talla-
hassee this past Saturday.
But another Rolle stole the
show and might be seeing
playing time on the front line
in 2006.
Myron Rolle played on the
second-string defense: this
past weekend, but with is
impressive playing and the
defense's domination over
the offense, he could be mov-
ing up to the first line. His
64-yard intercpetion return
was among the highlights of
the Seminole's annual battle
of the sides where the where
the defense toppled the of-
fense, 23-12.
Florida State's defense only
allowed 1 yard in 30 rushing
plays, and the offense man-
aged only one touchdown
against the unstoppable de-
fense. The touchdown came
when walk-on quarterback
Tommy Keane threw a pass
to wide receiver Robert
Hallback, who made the
catch after juggling it into
possession.
The defense was awarded
points for stopping the of-
fense on three downs, fourth-
down stops and turnovers, as
well as touchdowns in the 56-
play scrimmage.
Rolle's defensive playing
made quite an impression on
Bowden and the coaches af-
ter he swiped a pass from
Jared Whipkey and ran it
back into the endzone for a
defensive touchdown He
also finished the day with
three tackles, a pass break-
up at the goal and capped the
scrimmage by forcing tailback
Russell Ball to fumble.
Starting quarterback Drew
Weatherford completed 9 of
12 passes for 75 yards, but
saw his spring-long streak of
scrimmages without an in-
terception end when safety
Roger Williams picked him
off after wide receiver Joslin
Shaw ran the wrong route.


COLLIN MYRICK


3A. Dunbar led Walton in
scoring with a 15.2 points per
game average while also car-
rying the point guard duties
early in the season. Dunbar
was capable of scoring from
3-point range as well as spell-
ing McGhee and J. Leonard
on the inside when foul prob-
lems mounted for the Braves.
McGhee gave Walton a shot-
blocking weapon as well as
one of the area's taller
rebounders. McGhee limited

Listen up all you
motorheads and
grease monkeys,
spring is here and
that means car
shows, auto rallies
and beach cruising
with some of the
most unique rides
around.

This past weekend, car
shows and rallies sprang up
all over the Emerald Coast.
From Rosemary Beach to 'the
Santa Rosa Mall and from
Cadillacs to Corvettes, there
was plenty to see and many
more to come.
In Rosemary Beach, the
fifth annual Rt. 30A Antique
and Vintage Car Show re-
turned and an impressive ar-
ray of vehicles were exhib-
ited. Despite having to dodge
a few showers and the'threat
of serious weather, the sahow
took place.
The vehicles were judged
by the public and a 1918 Ford
Model T took took home the
trophy for best in show.
More than 20 classic and
antique vehicles were on dis-
play throughout the day.
In Mary Esther, the sev-
enth annual Emerald Coast
Mustang and Ford Powered
Car and Truck Show\ took
place at the Santa Rosa M.all.
This event was open to all
Ford vehicle owners.
More than 30 vehicles took
part in the one-day event.
Not to be left out, DeFu-
niak Springs had their own
classic car and truck event as
the Chautauqua Criusers hit
the road and drove 74 miles
to raise money for the Wal-
ton County Special Olympics.


The two-hour cruise took
riders around the country
side of the county and to the
Eucheanna Community Cen-
ter where a barbecue dinner
was served at the end of the
cruise.
If you missed out this
weekend and want to catch
the next auto show, then
make sure you attend at few
of the following shows.
The Emerald Coast Confer-
ence Center parking lot is
converted into a Trans Am
parking lot, April 21-23. The
show is open to all Firebirds,
Formulas, Trans Ams, GTAs
and Firehawks.
The parking lot will buzz
with the sound of customized
and tricked out classic and
new model cars. For more in-
formation, call 863-9516.
If you are a Mopar fan,
then Mopars at the Battle-
ship Show is just your ride.
The Mopar/AMC powered
show will take place at the
U.S.S. Battleship in Mobile,
AL on April 30. The event
and all money raised will
benefit the Mulherin Custo-
dial Home.".'. ,
Pre-registrationis $20 and
$25 the day of the show. For
more information, call (251)
653-5154.
In May, the streets heat up
again as Toys-4-Tots hits the
pavement. The event takes
place in Milton and money
that is raised from car entry
fees and for the cruise, goes
to help the Toys-4-Tots
Christmas fund.
For more information, call
(850) 995-4677.
No matter if you are a seri-
ous collector, an auto enthu-
siast, or you just don't have
anything else to do, seeing
these vehicles and learning
the history of the car, is well
worth attending.

25 beach access


locations available,


more to follow


By DOTTY NIST
The public now has access to the
beach at 25 locations in Walton
County, with more to follow.
All of the public dune walkovers
maintained by the South Walton
Tourist Development Council were
put out of commission due to the
destructive impacts of Hurricane
Dennis in July 2005. Since then the
TDC's goal has been to repair as
many of those as possible in time
for the beach season.
As of April 10, the public may
now access the beach at the follow-
ing locations, which are listed from
west to east: Miramar Beach Re-
gional Access; Norwood Drive;
Dune Allen Regional Access; West
Allen Loop Beach Access; Lake
Causeway east of Oyster Lake; Ed
Walline Regional Beach Access;
Gulfview Heights Regional Access;
Blue Lake Beach Access; Blue
Mountain Regional Beach Access;
Grayton Beach Regional Access;
Van Ness Butler Regional Beach
Access; Thyme/Dogwood; Live Oak;
Andalusia Street; Santa Clara Re-.
gional Beach Access; Beachwood
Villas; One Seagrove Place;


Ramsgate Beach Access; Sugar
Dunes; Walton Dunes; Seabreeze;
Wall Street; Inlet Beach; Phillips
Inlet, and the Whale's Tail.
Some of these accesses are tem-
porary "walk-on". locations, with
dune walkovers to be completed at'
a later date.
Dune walkovers are being re-
paired at an additional 17 locations,
scheduled to be completed by Me-
morial Day. Listed from west to
east, those are: Palms of Dune
Allen; Ed Walline Regional Beach
Access ADA ramp; Spooky Lane;
Ray's Multi-Mountain; Grayton
Beach Regional Beach Access ADA

Street; Highway 395; Gardenia
Street; Dothan Avenue; San Juan;
Pelayo; Eastern Lake; Gulf Lakes
Beach Estates; Seacrest Drive; Win-
ston Lane; and Inlet Beach Re-
gional Access west' and east walk-
overs.

public access to the beach, contact

ment Council at 267-1216 or log

THE ELEVATION of Walton County's beaches makes threats posed by a predicted sea level rise much less
than in many areas of the Florida coast. However, the estimated one-foot rise that may occur along the Gulf
Coast by 2050 is expected to increase erosion damage locally during storm events.




Will beach restoration



skip a section?


By DOTTY NIST
Walton County commissioners
voted for a "gap-free" beach resto-
ration project on five miles at the
county's west end, but as of early
this week the project contractor was'
reportedly undecided on the ques-
tion of "skipping over" the beach
next to three properties.
The owners of three beachfront
homes near the Sand Trap Road
public beach access had denied the
county construction easements in
connection with their property. The
easements had been requested per
state requirements for purposes of
the large-scale beach restoration
project. An attorney representing
the three owners had warned the
county of the possibility of law en-
forcement being called in and pros-
ecution resulting from trespassing
onto their property "for any,pur-
pose" by representatives of the
county or personnel connected with
the restoration project.
Still, on March 27 the Walton
County Board of County Commis-


sioners voted to include the section
in question as part of the beach res-
toration project, relying on author-
ity of the county's police powers and
in order to avoid leaving a low-ly-
ing area that would be more sus-
ceptible to storm impacts.
On April 10, Brad Pickel, beach
management director for the South
Walton Tourist Development Coun-
cil and beach restoration project
manager for the county, said that
restoration had reached the Sand'
Trap Road section but would stop
at that point while the dredge left
the area for refueling. Pickel ex-
plained that the project contractor,
Great Lakes Dredge and Dock
Company, planned to continue work
after refueling at another location,
near the Crescent condominium,
working west, away from the Sand
Trap Road area.
Pickel said the contractor is un-
dertaking an "in house legal re-
view" in connection with legal is-
sues associated with restoration of
the contested section. He antici-
pates a decision by the contractor


by the end of the week and notes
that restoration of the section is
still a possibility, since the neces-
sary sand transport pipes are be-
ing left in place for the time being.
No one fro'-fi r great Lakes Dredge
and Dock Company was available
for comment.
From the Crescent, construction
is expected to progress pastAvalon
Dunes this week toward the Beach
House condominium.
During the week of April 17, con-
struction is expected to move on to
the Amalfi Coast property and
Surfside condominium and then
into the Seascape beach area.
Construction during the week of
April 24 is expected to continue at
Seascape, after which the dredge is
to move to a point near Costa del
Sol condominiums, with restoration
progressing back eastward toward
Seascape.

tion on the beach nourishment

Planning for sea





level rise is urged


THIS INFORMATIONAL KIOSK, located at Van Ness Butler Regional
Beach Access between Seaside and WaterColor, was the first a new type of
kiosk to be placed at Walton County's public beach accesses. In locations
where lifeguard service is present, signs attached to the kiosks will specify
the hours during which that service is available in the swimming season.

By DOTTY NIST

Florida officials are being urged
to begin thinking about decisions
they may face from a possible dra-
matic reconfiguration of the state
through a sea level rise that is be-
ing predicted by the end of the cen-
tury.
Studies by the Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) indicate
the likelihood of a one-foot sea level
rise by year 2050 along the Gulf
and Atlantic coast. In the next cen-
tury, predictions for sea level rise
range from two feet (most likely) to
as much as a possible four-foot rise.
Rising sea level is one of the im-
pacts of global warming, which has
in turn been attributed to an in-
crease in carbon dioxide and other
gases in the atmosphere. Warming
has caused the melting of glaciers
and snow cover in the northern
hemisphere.


A recent state study based on
survey responses from state agen-
cies, water management districts,
and other official entities and set-
ting strategies with regard to
coastal hazards over the next five
years, finds that the state "could be
at risk from a potential rise in sea
level, as even a slight rise may in-
undate substantial areas .of the
state."
In January, Dan Trescott of the
Southwest'Florida Regional Plan-
ning Council encouraged the mem-
bers of Gov. Jeb Bush's Coastal
High Hazard Study Committee to
take into consideration the difficult
decisions that will face the state in
view of the land configuration
changes that may lie in the future.
Those decisions may include which
areas to fortify against those effects
and where to invest public re-
sources in responding to sea level
rise, he commented.


Laura Geselbracht of the Nature
Conservancy also provided com-
ments to the study committee in
which she discussed the concept of
"rolling easements," which could be
used in conjunction with a state or
federal program that would begin
by predicting areas that would be
most vulnerable to sea level rise
impacts. Land ownership in those
areas could then be converted into
a conditional lease with monetary
reimbursement going to land own-
ers, who would be required to aban-
don their property to nature at
some point, for example, if homes
were inundated by more than fifty
percent. Among the advantages of
the plan would be the ability to con-
serve the coast as a natural,
unarmored area, Geselbracht
noted.
She called the proposed ease-

Gopher tortoise protection
will be the topic of a meeting
to be held Wednesday, April
26, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the
Coastal Branch Library in
Santa Rosa Beach. Noted
gopher tortoise biologist,
Matt Aresco, Ph.D. will dis-
cuss the results of his efforts
to monitor and protect the
tortoise.
The largely-ignored gopher
tortoise is now considered a
species of special concern by
the state and federal govern-
ments. Shrinking habitats,
predation and disease are
taking their toll on this key-
note species.
The gopher tortoise is
found throughout the south-
eastern United States in the
sand pine hills ard scrub
flats of Mississippi, Alabama,
Georgia and Florida.
Tortoise burrows, some as
deep as 25 or 30 feet provide
critical habitat for up to 300
different species, some of
them endangered.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service requires a permit to
kill or relocate a tortoise.
Until recently, there has been
little interest in preserving
this species.
Currently, permits are
pending for a gopher assur-
ance colony .in Walton
County, where tortoises can
be safely relocated and moni-
tored by biologists.

Question: Why do I have to get a new license plate everyfive
years? Mine looks fine.


The facts:

Section 320.06(1)(b), Florida Statutes, requires five-year replacement of all
license plates. The replacement is necessary because license plates must be
fully reflective to ensure visibility for law enforcement purposes. The vendor of
the reflective sheeting, 3M Company, recommends replacement after five
years because the reflective sheeting shows reduced light reflection at night
after five years although the appearance during the day may appear to be
fine.

Lions Club


hosts Priscilla


Fowler, M.D.


Priscilla G. Fowler, M.D. pre-
sented a program on the
newly announced "Destin
Ophthalmology, P.A." in
Destin to The Sandestin Li-
ons Club. This was one of the.
best presentations that the
club has been exposed to in
that it covered most eye
sight problems that most
have experienced.
Fowler presented in some
detail the many services that
she offers. They covered
adult and pediatric eye ex-
aminations, prescription of
glasses and contact lenses,
diagnosis and treatment of


eye diseases including dia-
betic eye disease, glaucoma
and macular degeneration,
no stitch cataract surgery,
eyelid plastic surgery and
botox treatment of eyelid
spasm and facial wrinkles.
Dr. Fowler has a special
interest in preventable
causes of blindness as well as
age related eye disease. As
she pointed out she shares
the concerns that Helen
Keller expressed to Lions
Clubs International back in
1925 and those are to prevent
all preventable blindness and
cure all curable blindness.

issues

bridge

jumping

warning
With the arrival of spring
break and warm weather, the'
Okaloosa County Sheriff's
Office (OCSQ) is reminding
the public that it's against
state law to jump or dive
from a publicly-owned
bridge. Nothing requires the
state or any other political
entity to post signs notifying
the public to this regulation.
However, the OCSO has
asked the State Department
of Transportation (DOT) to
consider posting signs on the
Destin Bridge, traditionally
a trouble spot for bridge
jumping.
In addition, deputies warn
that a spot on the bridge
that's been used by violators
in the past used to have ap-
proximately twenty feet of
water underneath it. This
year, the water in that area
is now estimated to be only
four feet deep, underscoring
the dangers of the illegal
practice of bridge jumping.


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.

were Dungan-Nequette Ar-
chitects, Tracery Interiors,
and Saint Joe Towns and Re-
sorts.
WaterSound Beach Club
was decked out like an open-
air casino. Guests were is-
sued "money" for gaming
chips, to be used at dice,
cards, and roulette, and for
prize raffles. Proceeds from
these went to SRT.
Live music was provided
by Flash Flood, along with a
"teaser" medley from the en-


semble of SRT's s first sum-
mer production, My Way.
My Way is directed by SRT
artistic director Craige
Hoover and musical director
Kevin Field. The cast of four
features Erin Allain, Lauren
Kuehnle, Chris Gobles, and
Drew Stark.
The play is a tribute to the
life and music of Frank
Sinatra, and was conceived
by David Grapes and Todd
Olson.
My Way opened April 5,
and will run Wednesdays
through Saturdays, through
April 29. Performances are
at 7:30 p.m. at SRT's Meet-


ing Hall Theatre.
SRT's second production

DISHWASHER

WATER SAVING TIPS

TRY TO RUN THE DISHWASHER ONLY WHEN IT IS FULL OF
DISHES. RUNNING A FULL LOAD OF DISHES SHOULD SAVE
WATER OVER WASHING THE SAME DISHES BY HAND. A
TYPICAL DISHWASHER USES BETWEEN S AND 15
GALLONS PER LOAD OF DISHES WITH A AVERAGE OF
ABOUT 9.3 GALLONS PER LOAD.


MANY NEWER DISHWASHERS REQUIRE LITTLE OR NO
ADVANCE RINSING OF DISHES. SOME MANUFACTURERS
NOW OFFER HIGH-EFFICIENCY DISHWASHER I(MODELS.
THESE DISHWASHERS USE LESS WATER AND ENERGY. A
HIGH-EFFICIENCY DISHWASHER CAN WASH A LOAD OF
DISHES USING 5 TO 7 GALLONS OF WATER.


S A FAMILY THAT REPLACES A 12-GALLON PER
L)ADIMACHINE WITH A 6-GALLON PER LOAD MACHINE
AND RUNS THEIR DISHWASHER 4 TIIES PER \EEK WILL
SAVE ABOUT 1.25(1 GALLONS COF \VATER PER YEAR.


TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE CONSERVING
BENEFITS OF YOUR DISHWASHER!

PLANNING


From Front


ment program, "a better way
to accommodate the natural
system."
According to the EPA,
armoring such as sea walls
constructed to stabilize
homes, may eliminate
beaches. To protect public
beaches, including those ad-
jacent to structures, the
states of Maine, South Caro-
lina and Texas have put their
versions of rolling easements
into place so that beaches can
migrate, with removal of in-
undated homes being re-
quired as the shoreline ad-
vances.
On the Florida beaches
that are five feet are more
above sea level, including
Walton County's beaches,
impacts of the predicted one-
foot rise in sea level.by 2050
or the end of the century are
expected to be much less
than on beaches at a lower
elevation.
Brad Pickel, beach man-
agement director for the
South Walton Tourist Devel-
opment Council, estimated
that a one-foot sea level rise
would have minimal impact
on local beaches under hor-
mal conditions. However,
Pickel added that such a rise
would likely increase beach
erosion during storm events.
Coastal engineers predict
that the one-foot rise would
cause Florida's beaches to
erode from one foot in some
areas to as much as 10 feet
in others.
On beaches less than 100
feet in width, a one-foot sea
level rise would be expected
to threaten many beachfront
and beachside homes along
the U.S. coast. The Federal
Emergency Management
Agency has estimated that
approximately 25 percent of
all structures within 500 feet
of the coast will be claimed
by erosion within the next 60
years.


NEWS from the




CAPITOL



(AP) --A NEWLY ELECTED TEQUESTA COUNCIL mem-
ber is suing the municipality to have the oath of office de-
clared unconstitutional because it supports the federal gov-
ernment, something he says he does not do.
Basil E. Dalack, 76, an appellate lawyer, also wants the
words "and government" removed from the section that
reads, "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support,
protect and defend the Constitution and government of the
United States and of the state of Florida." The lawsuit was
filed last week in federal court.
The oath violates the Constitution by placing a restraint
on Dalack's right to free speech and denies him, without
due -process, occupancy of his elective office, the lawsuit
states.
Dalack said if he reads the oath, he would be a blind sup-
porter of the war in Iraq and of the Bush administration
and he would have "the blood of all those Iraqi and Ameri-
can kids on my hands."
He is scheduled to be sworn in Thursday, but he has told
Village Manager Michael Couzzo Jr. that he will not say the'
current version of the oath.
"No citizen of the Unites States should be required to
swear to support the government, which is the (Bush) ad-
ministration," said Dalack, who served in the Army in Ko-
rea during the Korean War. "Those kids in Iraq died only
because of George Bush, and I will not swear to support a
government with immoral and unlawful policies:"
Dalack told Couzzo he would take the oath if the word
"support" were removed. Couzzo said Dalack does not have
authority to modify the oath.
Vice Mayor Pat Watkins said Dalack took the same oath
in 1999 when he was previously elected to a term on the
council.
"I think everyone was stunned that he would run for of-
fice and then say he can't take the oath," Watkins said.
Dalack won the uncontested race in February, taking the
seat formerly held by retired Marine Corps Col. Edward
Resnik, who died Nov. 8 of lung cancer at age 75.
Dalack said he realized what the oath said a few weeks
ago.
"I said, 'Oh my God, I can't swear to this,' he said. "It
had never dawned on me before then that I couldn't take
it."

(AP) -- MORE THAN 80,000 Floridians took to the streets
Monday, joining demonstrators nationwide to protest a Con-
gressional bill that would make illegal immigration a felony
and would offer no path to citizenship for the estimated 11
million illegal immigrants already here.
Florida is home to an estimated 850,000 illegal immi-
grants, the nation's third largest community after Califor-
nia and Texas, according to the Washington, D.C.-based
think tank, the Pew Hispanic Center.
Yet unlike California and Texas, which have seen hun-
dreds of thousands, take to the streets in recent days,
Florida's immigrants have kept a relatively low profile amid
the recent contentious debates in Congress.
That changed over the weekend when thousands of people
marched through the streets of downtown Miami and Or-

On Monday, protesters demonstrated in cities across
South Florida, waving U.S. and others national flags. Many
held signs with messages such as' "It is not about politics.
It is about human beings. Stop being elfish."
Police estimated more than 75,000 people marched in Fort
Myers with many demonstrators from Immokalee travel-
ing in vehicles normally used to take them to work in the
fields. The protest, estimated to be the state's largest, also
drew many people from northern Florida, organizers said.
Veronica'Ramirez, 19, a native of Mexico City, was one of
hundreds who came from the town of Immokalee. She said
she had participated in marches /before but never one so
big.
"It gives you motivation to keep fighting," said Ramirez,
who has worked in the tomato fields since she came to the
United States two years ago. '"
Ramirez said she is still very worried that even if an im-
migration reform bill was passed allowing immigrants who
have been in the country at least five years to legalize their
stat. s, she will still be illegal.
"1 nave been working hard, as hard as people who have
been here five years," Ramirez said.
About 5,000 people marched in the working class coastal
city of Lake Worth, about 60 miles north of Miami.
David Caulkett, founder of the Floridians for Immigra-
tion Enforcement, questioned the strong showing ofAmeri-
can flags at more recent protests, after many demonstra-
tors waved Mexican flags at protests in Los Angeles last
week.
"This week the theme is American flags and citizenship.
Why the sudden change of loyalty? What is the true senti-
ment?" he said. "Who is financing all of these protests?"
Caulkett also criticized South Dade Senior High School
in Homestead which offered st udents buses back to campus
after they walked out of classes last week and protested at
City Hall.
In the early evening, more than 2,500 protesters gath-
ered in a park in central Homestead, where organizers -
who spoke in Creole, Spanish, English and Guatemalan in-
digenous dialects displayed baskets of fresh fruits and veg-
etables as a reminder that much of the country's harvest is
picked by illegal immigrants.
Hector Ariaga, who runs a construction company and em-
ploys 40 workers, brought his wife and three U.S.-born chil-
dren.
Ariaga, who has been in the United States for 17 years
illegally, said that under new federal guidelines, when his
driver's license runs out this summer, he would not be able
to renew it.
"I am going to lose the vehicles that I use to take workers
to jobs," he said. "I am going to lose my business. After all
these years, they should allow me to get my papers."
The protests came after partisan disagreements in the
Senate Friday left in doubt the future of a compromise bill
that could provide U.S. citizenship for millions illegal im-
migrants.
The House bill, passed in December, would make being
an illegal immigrant a felony and called for building a fence
along the nation's border with Mexico.
Earlier Monday, hundreds of people marched in front of
the federal courthouse in Pensacola carrying American, Hon-
duran and Mexican flags. Jose Ramirez, a construction
worker from Honduras and his friends arrived with a truck
full of bottled water to pass out to others.
Ramirez said he was marching because he is the main
provider for his family.
"It's really hard for Latinos living here who have fami-
lies still in their poor countries, like my family that live in
Honduras," Ramirez said. "They really need somebody here."
In Fort Lauderdale, Cornelio Ruiz, 29, joined more than
150 people in front of the federal courthouse, under the
watchful eye of police. Ruiz, who arrived in the United States
from Honduras in 2004, said he supported amnesty for all
illegal immigrants.
"I left my country because there was no future for me or
my family, there were no jobs, said Ruiz, who said he and
others are doing jobs Americans do not want.
