Luxury living comes to DFS


By RON KELLEY
Jack and Sean Burke
want to create a legacy in De-
Funiak Springs. Their plan is
to build 138 luxury town
homes on a 12-acre parcel
joining U.S. 90 and 20th
Street. The residential sub-
division is named Legacy
Cove.
Burke, a resident of
Niceville, said it all start
when he toured DeFuniak
Springs about three years
ago. "I knew that growth was
on the way in Walton County
and that there would soon be
a market for high quality
town homes that are attain-
able for working professional
couples. That was one of the
things that we wanted to be
able to offer. Our town homes
start at $200,000 and all
have top of the line appli-
ances and carpeting," he said.
Burke said that he and his
son could have increased the
allowable density to include
more units, but they made
the decision to build fewer,
but better quality units that
would be affordable to work-
ing professionals living in
and relocating to DeFuniak
Springs and Walton County.
Burke said they would offer
100 percent financing.
The development, if ap-
proved, would be built in two


phases and would feature a
25,000 square foot clubhouse,
a swimming pool, tennis and
basketball courts, a picnic
area and playground.

Burke said their financing
requirements call for 80 per-
cent of the units to be pre-
sold before their funding is


available. However, he noted
that some investors may pur-
chase a town home and lease
it to other occupants.
Legacy Cove, which would
be a private, gated commu-
nity, must still be approved
by the DeFuniak Springs
Planning Board at their next
meeting on May 1 at City


Hall. If approved at that
meeting, Burke said they
would break ground on phase
one in June.

project, contact Exponential
Development LLC online at

THE LAYOUT OF THE COMMUNITY will feature a clubhouse, pool, playground and
tennis court with a gated entry on 20th Street.


Woodall agrees to resign from FDLE


following Burgess Incident


By BRUCE COLLIER
Carl T.Woodall, the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement (FDLE) analyst
alleged to have been involved
in former DeFuniak Springs
Police Chief Ray Burgess' fal-
sification of official docu-
ments, has agreed to resign
from FDLE.
The resignation, effective
December 31,2005, was part
of a settlement agreement
made by Woodall and FDLE.
Woodall had been under
FDLE investigation for alleg-
edly assisting Burgess in
falsely backdating applica-
tion documents to allow a
prospective law enforcement
officer to avoid seeking recer-
tification.
Burgess resigned, having
pled to a misdemeanor of-
fense. Woodall was never
charged with any offense, but
his alleged involvement was
investigated internally by
FDLE.
In July of 2005, FDLE
made a proposed determina-
tion to dismiss Woodall for in-
fractions of various adminis-
trative and statutory rules
governing official negligence,


providing false information
to investigators, official mis-
conduct, and conduct unbe-
coming.
Per FDLE rules, Woodall
was given a "predetermina-
tion conference" prior to the
final action. This conference.
which was taped, gave
Woodall an opportunity ,.to
make his case to FDLE.
In November of 2005, the
FDLE decided to proceed
with dismissal. As a public'
employee, Woodall exercised
his right to appeal his,dis-
missal to the Public Employ-
ees Relations Commission
(PERC).
On March 14 of 2006,
Woodall and FDLE signed a
settlement agreement;
In exchange for with-
drawing his appeal to PERC,
FDLE agreed to "rescind and
remove the July 14, 2005
Notice of Proposed Dismissal
and the November 1, 2005
Notice of Final Agency Action
of Dismissal and all related
information from [Woodall's]
personnel file, mark all such
materials 'void,' and place
them in the Executive
Investigation's file and the


General Counsel's Office file,
subject to release only in re-
sponse to a public records re-
quest under Chapter 119,
Florida Statutes."
SFurther, the agreement
reinstates Woodall as of No-
vember 1,2005. Woodall then
agrees to resign from FDLE,
with an effective date of De-
cember 31, 2005.
The Florida State Person-
nel Records System will list
this as a "voluntary resigna-
tion."
FDLE records indicate
that Woodall is "neither eli-
gible or ineligible for rehire"
by FDLE.
The agreement also con-
tains a blanket release by
Woodall of any claims he
might have pursued against
FDLE and the state.
Attached to the agreement
are two affidavits, one ex-
ecuted by Burgess and the
other by FDLE field special-
ist Douglas Glisson. Both af-
fidavits were executed in
January of 2006.
Burgess' affidavit states
that he "did not conspire or.
otherwise participate in a
scheme with Woodall to


make any false statements or
falsify any public records
whatever...."
Burgess goes on to absolve
Woodall of any participation
in altering or falsifying docu-
ments, concluding that
"Woodall advised him to be
truthful 'in regards to any
changes he had made" to the
application file that was the
subject of the inquiry.
Glisson's affidavit attests
to Woodall's honesty and
competence as an analyst,
and expresses Glisson's opin-
ion "that Woodall was not
negligent and did not fail in
carrying out the responsibili-
ties of his job...and followed
FDLE's policy and proce-
dures according to the chain
of command and job descrip-
tion."

Under the terms of the
settlement agreement, all
public records requests for
Woodall's void personnel
records "shall include a copy
of this Settlement Agree-
ment and the affidavits of
Neil Ray Burgess Jr. and
Douglas Glisson as a part of
such information."

By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County School
Board held their second regu-
lar meeting for the month on
Monday, April 17 at the Tivoli
Administrative Complex in
DeFuniak Springs.
The contract for the new
Paxton gymnasium was ap-
proved by board members as
Speegle Construction won
the job with a bid of
$4,460,000 with a deduction
of $200,000 for a change in
the roofing system.

The Walton County School
Board reached an agreement
with the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners over the use of school
buses during natural disas-
ters and emergencies.
Board members awarded
Sasnet Construction the con-
tract to.begin clearing land
in Mossy Head for the new
elementary school. Sasnet
Construction won the con-
tract to clear 20 acres of land
for $32,000.

ing was again loaded with-
trip requests from various-
school organizations. The
Walton High School band
will travel to Six Flags,
Amusement Park in Atlanta-

Coast Middle School is tak-
ing eighth-graders to

ementary School was ap-
proved by board members.

project with a bid of $231,930
and will begin as soon as"
school lets out for the year.
Wayne Miller, supervisor
of Administration and Op-
erations, chaired the meeting'
as Superintendent Carlene'
Anderson was not able to at-
tend.
The Walton County School'
Board will convene their next
meeting on Monday, May 1,
at 5 p.m.


More options


arise for senior


citizen center


By LEAH STRATMANN
With every meeting of the
College Avenue Complex
Committee, more options
arise, but at this juncture,
the missing element is hard
numbers on cost, without
which, forward motion is dif-
ficult,
At the last meeting, com-
mittee chairman J.B. Hillard
reported on the recent visit
of three senior center man-
agers from around-:the state,
at least one of whom has of-
fered to return if more assis-
tance is needed. Hillard said
the response to the survey
was "pretty good. We have a
good idea of what the people
want, at least the people who
responded to the survey," he
said.
At the last meeting, the
group decided. the name for
the center will be the Life
Enrichment Center. Hilliard
speculated that since the
center will be a collaborative
financial project, the center
would be open for any who
wish to use it. "I think most
seniors will be using in early
mornings and afternoons,
but others could use it too.
Big Brother and Big Sisters
have been talking about
starting a mentoring pro-
gram, and the center might
be a good place to do that in
the afternoons," he sug-
gested.
Committee member and
DeFuniak Springs City
Councilman James Coffield
made a motion to have the
city and county formally
start working together on the
details of how they will work
together. This motion was
passed.
,Hillard noted that the city
and the county are now into
the budgeting process for the
next year. "I will be bird dog-
ging the process to make sure
the center gets into this


year's budget, otherwise we
will have to wait another
year."
Walton County Commis-
sioner Kenneth Pridgen, also
a committee member sug-:
gested the county's construc-
tion manager determine the
cost ofremodeling complex;
as well as investigating the,
addition of a 2,000 square-i
foot addition to the current
building and the possibility
of construction a 4,000
square foot stand alone
building on the property.
"We need more than one
option," Pridgen said. "Right
now, we have three: Renovate
the current building, add
onto to the current building,
or build a new building. It
will take 30 to 90 days to get
some figures on the various
options, but we cannot begin.
to look at how to fund it un-
til we have some numbers,"
he said. "Seniors want a place
to have dances and a dining
area. We need to have a fa-
cility big enough to accommo-
date-wheelchairs," he noted.
The issue of ADA compli-
ance is just another facet of
the problem. While the cur-
rent structure.is on one level
and accessible to all, the
bathrooms are not ADA com-
pliant and according to
Hillard, there are not enough
of them to accommodate a
crowd. Hillard said a floor
plan of some sort must be
developed soon in order for a
reasonable renovation cost to
be determined.
"The city very much wants
to be a part of this," Hillard
noted, "but they do the heavy
lifting on this. We should be
able to get the numbers in
time to be included in the
next budget cycle and I don't
think the committee will
meet again until we have
some hard data to work
with."


Freeport City Council looks at five-year plan for fire department


By BEN GRAFTON
At its regular meeting of
April 11, at Freeport City
Hall, Councilman Charlie
Simmons briefed the council
on plans to create a five- year
plan for the fire department.
He said the city needed to
look ahead three to five years
and take steps to provide for
changes that will need to be
made. Some items to be con-
sidered include: one paid fire
fighter per shift; a coopera-
tive effort with Walton
County to establish a Black
Creek fire station; and a lad-
der truck that will handle a
three story building. He re-
quested input from council


members.
It was reported that the
city has received a letter from
County Planner Pat
Blackshear asking to take
over the traffic concurrence
management for the city.
Henninger said she thinks
Peters Municipal Associates
maintains the traffic counts
and does a good job for Free-
port. City Attorne clayton
Adkinson said he would not
Want to see the council give
up its control and decision-
making authority.
The council heard City
Planner Latilda Henninger
present the final plats for
Magnolia Bay Estates Phase


two, Palmetto Place Phase
two and Marina Village
Phase one to the city council
for acceptance.
The only change from an
earlier Magnolia Bay plat
showed a Department of En-
vironmental Protection
(DEP) revision to the mitiga-
tion line. The council ap-
proved acceptance of the
plat.

The Palmetto Place plat
incorporated the last five lots
in the project. This plat was
approved for acceptance sub-
ject to payment of impact fees
now due on this phase of the
development.


A correction to the Marina
Village plat is required. The
plat was approved for accep-
tance subject to completion of
this correction. The required
council signatures will not be
given until the revision has
been done.
Mayor Mickey Marse an-
nounced that the first Free-
port Recreation Board meet-
ing will be held at 6 p.m. on
April 17, at City Hall.

City Engineer Charles Pe-
ters said he would check on
the work status of the con-
tractor crews working on the
city's Bay Loop Road project.
Peters said they were en-


countering a "lot of problems"
getting Department of
Transportation permits. Pe-
ters doesn't know source of
the problems at this time.
Upon the recommenda-
tion of Peters, the Council ap-
proved a motion to declare
the old North Bay water sys-
tem well sites to be surplus
property.

Diane Jackson of the Free-
port Town Planters asked for
and received approval to do
landscape planting at the
Old Post Office. She
also said the organization
planned to celebrate Na-
tional Arbor Day on Friday,


April 28, by planting a tree
on the fire station property
to recognize the contribu-
tions the Freeport Volunteer
Fire Department makes to
the community.

The council approved a
resolution naming. April "
Water Conservation Month."
Council approval was
given for City Clerk Robin
Haynes to attend the City
Clerk Conference at the end
of June.
The council also approved
Henninger's request to at-
tend the Florida planners
association meeting the last
of September.

hours of the relay.
After dark, the moving
Luminaria Ceremony is held
in memory of those who have
lost the battle with cancer,
and inhonor of those who are
winning.

Springs Police Department
and Florida Fire Marshal's
Office an arrest was made in
connection with..the arson
that took place on Jan. 2, at

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 20. 2006


In 2006


Tax certificate sales go online


Walton County Tax Collec-
tor Rhonda Skipper has
teamed with Bid4Assets, "a
nationally-recognized and
leading online auction com-
pany," to begin online tax
certificate sales in Walton
County in the summer of
2006.
Tax certificate sales are the
purchase of a property tax
lien on real estate parcels
whose owners have not paid
their annual taxes. The pro-
cess allows the county tax
collector to collect virtually
one hundred percent of taxes
levied, and gives added time
for the delinquent taxpayer


to repay. The tax certificate
sale is conducted as a reverse
auction, in that the investor
who bids the lowest interest
rate wins the right to buy the
certificate. The intended
outcome is to create as low a
burden as possible for the
delinquent taxpayer to even-
tually repay.

The statutory timetable for
tax certificate sales is the
same for every county state-
wide, set to begin in early
summer after that year's de-
linquency list is advertised.
This presented a challenge to
prospective investors who


had to be physically present,
and to counties like Walton,
who had to host venues for
sales that attracted many
bidders.

"Online tax certificate sales
are a significant improve-
ment in our ability to serve
you", says Walton County
Tax Collector Rhonda Skip-
per. "Convenient service to
the public is a first consider-
ation here, and this profes-
sional business solution from
Bid4Assets places Walton
among other leading counties
in Florida who offer this tech-
nology. This will increase the


number of bidders who. can
participate, and yield the
most favorable interest rate
for the distressed taxpayer."
Last year, 22 Florida counties
conducted online tax sales.
A local on-site bidder train-
ing session has been sched-
uled for April 25, 2006 begin-
ning at 9 a.m. at the
Okaloosa Walton College-
DeFuniak Springs Campus
Computer Lab room 202.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


PERSONAL COMMENTS


EDITOR'S COMMENT By RONKELLEY




The war on freedom


Just when I thought I might be able to relax for a moment
and draw a single unfettered breath, another agency has
launched an assault against Americans' freedom.
This time, the attack comes from the Internal Revenue
Service.
Although the ceaseless horror stories about this agency
and its Gestapo-like tactics have caused it to be nicknamed
the Infernal Revenue Service, I still did not expect it to join
in the administration's War on Freedom, especially when it
cannot directly benefit from the change.
I am speaking of the IRS plan to revise its code book to
allow tax preparers to sell your private information to any-
one who wants to buy it.
That's right, your tax preparer can make a small fortune
by selling your private information to the highest bidder -
again and again.
As this is a family newspaper, I cannot tell you what I
really think of this latest outrage.
However, I am pleased to see that I am not the only one
who thinks this is another in a long line of reprehensible,
unethical and unjustifiable assaults on our privacy by our
own government.
Republican Congressman Jim Gibbons of Nevada called
on the IRS to immediately reconsider proposed rule changes
that would allow for the sale of private.taxpayer informa-
tion.
In a letter addressed to IRS Commissioner Mark Everson,
Gibbons condemned any policy change that would permit
accountants and tax advisors to sell entire tax returns to
third-party vendors.
Gibbons said, "The IRS must reconsider its proposal to
allow for the sale of private taxpayer information. It's bad
enough that most Americans are forced to hire profession-
als to file their taxes as a result of the cumbersome and
confusing tax code," said Gibbons. "This policy change is
alarming, and my concern is that the sale of information
will increase the taxpayers' vulnerability to privacy viola-
tions and identity theft. Taxpayers entrust their advisors
with private information including social security numbers,
bank account numbers, and other private financial infor-
mation. We cannot allow for this information to fall into the
wrong hands, which could potentially destroy the financial
security of millions of Americans.
"It is incomprehensible to think that a tax consultant could



Editor,
I am writing to tell of my concerns for County Highway
3280 in Freeport, Walton County, District 1. I went to the
County Commissioners board meeting last Tuesday night,
April 11, 2006, but had to leave before meeting ended. I heard
that it was promising to my concerns on this road.
In front of my house, I, and with the help of others, can
recall 19 wrecks, three deaths that we know of. Further down
the road, we have:thad at least four.deaths. That's a total of
seven deaths with two to eight miles apart, which we know
of. The embankments are bad; the curves are sharp, bumps
in curves that are dangerous. We are being used as an evacu-
ation route also, and the heavy traffic that goes across our
,little Black Creek Bridge is too much. The county came out
and evened the bridge arid road out, but the next evacua-
tion will make part of it sink again. It needs to be fixed or
rebuilt now, before something happens to it or to someone.
On the whole, County Hwy. 3280 needs to be rebuilt, or at
least a lot of changes made on it.
I went to FHP in Crestview and could get nine accident
reports for 2004, 2005. They say Walton County Sheriff
should have the rest. I am trying to see about getting those
now. And before 2004, I'll need to go to Tallahassee for the
FHP files.
We know that the main cause of these wrecks is speeding,
and I guess Walton County just doesn't have enough depu-
ties to patrol it more often. So we need to fix the road.
The county has lots of plans for this little road. So I wanted
it known, just how dangerous it is.
Thanks for listening to me.

take a document with all of the above, information included
in it and sell it to a private vendor. At that point, there are
virtually no safeguards to protect this information and keep
it from getting into the wrong hands. American citizens do
not deserve to have the most intimate details of their lives
sold to the highest bidder. We cannot allow our citizens to
be preyed upon just to improve the bottom dollar of market-
ing firms."
Now that's my kind of Republican!
The IRS says the revisions are meant to "safeguard infor-
mation." Is that a joke? How does increasing the number of
people who can possess confidential tax information protect
taxpayers?
Forty-seven state attorney generals have signed a letter
objecting to the IRS plan. At a recent hearing, even a repre-
sentative for tax preparer H&R Block spoke out against the
change.
The IRS plan is also drawing the ire of consumer groups
such as the U.S. Public Interest Research Group (PIRG),
the Consumer Federation ofAmerica, and the National Con-
sumer Law Center.
PIRG's Ed Mierzwinski is quoted as saying that he was
not surprised that "the same IRS that let Richard Nixon
and many other Presidents run roughshod over the privacy
of ordinary American citizens now wants to let powerful spe-
cial interests plunder our confidential tax records for com-
mercial gain."
Here's the clincher: the change does not require the ap-
proval of Congress. The IRS can do it on its own.
However, that doesn't mean that your congressional rep-
resentatives cannot strangle this evil plan. My suggestion
is to call every state and federal legislator you can and ask
them to use the full weight of their office to quash this revi-
sion.
.It's true that the pen is mightier than the sword, and it's
time you picked up your weapon and answered the call of
duty. In the War on Freedom, my friend, we are all foot sol-
diers.


Editor,
Recently my daughter and I were in a traffic accident on
Hwy. 98E. We just wanted to say thank you to the South
Walton Fire and Rescue Team and to the Sacred Heart Hos-
pital Emergency Room Staff. The South Walton Fire and
Rescue acted very quickly to get to the scene of the accident
and transported us quickly to Sacred Heart Hospital.
The services that you provide to the citizens of 'WAlton
County ev ry'day are a great asset. Too many times, those
types of assets go unappreciated or unrecognized, they are
taken for granted. Even though it's not said enough, we
wanted you to know that we do appreciate and value the
professional services that you gave us on Saturday. Thank
you for doing what you do everyday.
We also wanted to thank the many people who stopped
and offered their help. Although I do not know all your names
we are truly grateful for your kindness. I can't express
enough my gratitude to the lady that got the drivers tag
number. I've met a lot of people in my life time but on Sat-
urday I met some really "great people". To our friends Fire-
man Kenny Reynolds and B.J. at Sacred Heart Hospital you
guys are the greatest.

God Bless all of you!

Editor:
Has anyone ever had to call 911 in an emergency for a
loved one? Have you ever thought about the rescuers who
are going to find a certain residence at the time of the
emergency?
We use the addresses on your mailbox. Walton County
improved the service by having 24 hour firefighter/para-
medics on duty in Darlington, Red Bay, Tri-Village, and-the
newest, Mossy Head.
Most people have the numbers on the side of the mailbox
or on the post that the mail carrier uses. However, the emer-
gency responders come from many directions. For example,
on Rock Hill Road, they have them on the 331 side, since
the mail comes from Freeport Post Office. At least they are
on the front of the mailbox and hand written with a black
sharpie marker, and some not even at all. Imagine trying to
find the address in the middle of the night. This sure makes
it hard to find you in an emergency!
The ambulance primarily responds out of Freeport to the
Rock Hill Road area, but Fire Rescue from Red Bay Fire
Station responds also. The first responders from Walton Fire
Rescue can be there before the ambulance and start the
emergency care to the patient. In addition, they can get fur-
ther information on the patient before the ambulance ar-
rives, and administer the life-saving procedures.
In a rural area that we live in, you or a loved one might
need more acute care than what can be given in your local
health care facility. For example, someone might be having
a stroke or heart attack. Time is critical to get them to a
stroke center, the closest one being in Pensacola or Panama
City, so helicopter transport may be necessary. You have
only few hours from the time of onset of the symptoms to
receive life-saving therapy. That is not from the time you
call us.
The numbers should be four inches in height and on both
sides. This can be done in a couple of seconds at Wal-Mart
for less than $5. You can get numbers that are reflective
and put them on both sides of the mailbox. It is recommended
that the numbers be reflective, so they can be better seen at
night. The numbers should not be the same color as.the
mailbox or mailbox post. The numbers need to stand out
easily for the emergency responders, whether it be police,
fire, or emergency medical services, to see from a distance
of no less than 100 feet. It is recommended, if possible, that
numbers be posted on the front, roadside of your mailbox
too.

Editor:
The column by Leah Stratmann "Senior Center Plans
Draw Criticism" that appeared in the April 6, DeFuniak
Herald contains remarks attributed to Mr. Hillard that need
to be addressed. Although there may not be current figures
available for the cost of configuring the Warren Building to
the design envisioned for the senior center, there is a record
of the costs associated with reconfiguring the building to its
present state. This cost was considerable and far exceeded
the original estimate. The excessive costs were due to ef-
forts needed to cope with the original layout.
As Mr. Callahan pointed out, renovation is constrained
by water lines, drains, toilets and electrical lines through-
out the building. This accounts for the strange layout of the
offices currently contained in the building. Arranging the
building to contain a large central room would only exacer-
bate the difficulties and add to the cost. The fact that there
are people whose ideas run counter to those of Mr. Hillard,
but do not attend his meetings, may be attributable to his
unwillingness, as moderator, to entertain an expression of
those ideas. As to their agenda, I don't know of any agenda
being expressed beyond achieving the best and most eco-
nomical use of the Warren Building and old hospital prop-
erty.
It should be noted that the county still has an outstand-
ing debt of $1.07 million on the property and there are re-
straints on what the property can be used for. No one, that
I am aware of, has expressed opposition to the senior center
per se. Opposition has been only to the choice of a site. This
was demonstrated by the fact that two alternative sites have
been suggested. As to the Wee-Care Park location, the pro-
posed site, although contiguous with the park property, is
located so as to provide separation from other park activi-
ties. However, there are studies that show interaction be-
tween children and seniors is beneficial to both.
Regarding the suggestion that opposition is politically mo-
tivated, I can't imagine what political gain could be derived
from one's position on the matter.

Editor:
In response to Mr. Rowell's letter re: motorcycle accident.

This is not intended to take respect from any emergency
responders, but the citizens need to know what happened.
We were traveling south on Hwy 83, stopped by the flag-
man at intersection of Veteran's Blvd and 83. The north-
bound traffic was released and in that lane, I saw Dana Th-
. mpson, friend of mine and disabled RN, in the north
lane and made comment to my mother. My mom looked in
Sher side mirror and said "Oh my God there ias been a mo-
torcycle accident." I looked and saw Dana jump out of her
truck and run to the victim. I called 911, and was going to
see if I could help Dana; she was already giving rescue
breathing.
At that time a small white truck came speeding past us.
(headed north) He pulled over and jumped out of his
truck. We noticed he was wearing a uniform, and assumed
he was emergency help so I did not get out of my vehicle,
as I assumed Dana would have help and our lane started
moving. A short time later, I called Dana to check on her.
She asked how did I know. She stated she was shaky but
was mad. She said there were two uniformed men
(identified as EMTs) stopped but refused to help with the
rescue breathing because they did not have masks. They
told her it was "against the law to administer rescue breath-
ing without a mask." One woman bystander did help her
some and Dana wanted to thank her but did not know her
name.
"Why would anyone speed through very congested one-
lane traffic knowing they were not going to be able to help"?
I called the Director of EOC, Mr. Ed Baltzley. Mr Baltzley
called me back. I explained the scenario to him. Mr. Baltzley
explained that unfortunately the county has no jurisdiction
over volunteer departments and suggested that I call the
Chief of Glendale Volinteer Fire Department. Mr. Baltzley
did say Ms. Dana Thompson should be commended for her
efforts to save this person's life and to convey to her his
appreciation for her concerns. I contacted the Glendale
Volunteer Fire Dept. Chief, and was told that they
aren't teaching rescue breathing anymore, but he would look
into it, and for me to call the Chief of Argyle Volunteer Fire
Department; I did and this chief asked me to write a letter,
so that he could present it to the board of directors.
I called Mr. Mike Spader, Senior Director, Health and
Safety Services, for the American Red Cross. I asked "Is it
against the law to administer rescue breathing without a
mask?" No. Mr. Spader did explain it is recommended to
use a mask, but is not against the law to administer with-
out mask, and he personally does not know of many lay-
men, EMT's or medical personnel that have not adminis-
tered rescue breathing without a mask due to severity of
medical emergency. I asked about the teaching of the mouth-.
to- mouth rescue breathing and he said they are still teach-
ing and why did I ask that. I explained to him that I was
told by a Chief of a volunteer fire department that they
were not. He was upset that I was given that
false information and asked my source, then said
he, personally, would contact the source and give him the
correct procedures.


My brother-in-law,an Alabama Professional Firefighter
with 29 years experience and a National Registered Para-
medic/EMT, stated if he was off-duty with no mask, he would
call 911 and report it; if he had his mask, he would call 911
and immediately administer rescue breathing. If he was on
duty, regardless if he had mask or not, he was obligated to
perform. He did say that if a volunteer sped to the scene of
an accident, knowing he was not going to help, he could
be given a speeding and/or careless driving 'ticket, just as
any citizen would.
Many people were upset over this incident and this is
why I contacted the DeFuniak Herald. My thoughts and
prayers are with Mr. Roeting's family and friends. May God
grant you his blessings and peace. Ms. Thompson did ev-
erything in her power to try to save him. I commend her
actions.

these, Petersen said, is an
exemption being considered
Opening eyes about open records that would protect people in-
volved with a brain tumor


By LEIGH STRICKLAND

First Amendment Founda-
tion Seminar Planned


The Walton County Tax-
payers Association is sponsor-
ing a seminar on Florida's
public records laws on Thurs-
day, April 27.
Barbara Petersen, presi-
dent of the First Amendment
Foundation, will be speaking
to provide a general overview
of Florida's Sunshine Law,
the open meetings law, and
the public records law.
She will go over general re-
quirements made by these
laws. Things considered will
include when meetings have
to be noticed, what kind of
notice must be provided, and
what is the public's right to
participate. She will also dis-
cuss what a public record is
and whether or not govern-
ment can require you to put
in writing a request for pub-
lic records. Sanctions for vio-
lations of these laws will be
noted.
Petersen granted the Her-
ald an exclusive interview
and discussed issues related
to public records and the Sun-
shine Law.
"We have a presumption of
openness under Florida's
law," she said. "We presume
that a government record is
a public record subject to dis-
closure. And with the meet-
ings law, we presume that a
discussion of public business
between two or more mem-
bers of the same board or
commission is a meeting sub-
ject to the Sunshine Law."
Public officials, then, can
deny access to meetings or
public records only with spe-
cific statutory authority.
For example, if the county
were to go through an inter-
nal audit or were to be sued,
records would be exempt from
disclosure until the processes
were concluded. 1
Questions about 9-1-1 calls
Come up frequently and


Petersen addressed some of
these.
In an emergency call, in-
formation identifying the per-
son needing services and the
person requesting services
are exempt from public dis-
closure. However, this exemp-
tion applies only while the
tape is in the custody of the
agency that responds to the
call.
For example, if the fire de-
partment responds to an
emergency call and then finds
that criminal activity is in-
volved, the tape would be.
turned over to a law enforce-
ment agency. Exemption of
that identifying information
expires when the tape is
turned over.
Only identifying inforiia-
tion can be blanked out. This
would include names and ad-
dresses of the person calling
and the person needing help.
The tape may also be ex-
empt if information on it is
used as part of a criminal in-
vestigation, like if an attacker
is identified during a 9-1-1
call.
A government agency is
required to provide the record
of a 9-1-1 call in the format
in which it is maintained or
in some other meaningful
form.
For example, if the agency
keeps the record on cassette,
it will provide the record on
cassette or in other meaning-
ful form, such as a transcript.
There is no requirement as
to what media system must
be used. This depends on each
individual agency.
As with all public records,
a 9-1-1 call must'be available
to the public within a reason-


able amount of time. That
generally means the time it
takes to locate a record, re-
view it for exempt informa-
tion and provide a copy. This
will, however, depend on the
circumstances.
Regarding structure fires,
Petersen said that informa-
tion about the property owner
and current tenant can be
obtained if it is in the fire re-
port. Property records listing
the owner of a piece of land
can also be obtained at the
property appraiser's office. If
the tenant were someone
else, information could be ob-
tained at the public utilities,
office as to' who paysfor the
utilities.
Regarding the Patriot Act's
effect on the public's access to
government records and re-
ports, Petersen said this is
often misunderstood. :Under
Florida law, she said, a state
record is exempt only if there'
is a federal law stating. that
the record is exempt. The Pa-
triot Act has no specific pub-
lic records exemptions.
The First Amendment
Foundation keeps close watch
on legislation that applies to
open meeting and public
record laws.
On the success rate of bills
in the state legislature de-
signed to limit or eliminate
the public's access to govern-
ment records, Petersen said
that in comparison with the
number of bills before the leg-
islature, the success rate is
minimal. About 10 new ex-
emptions are created a year,
but, she said, this is still too
many, as a lot of these are not
meant to protect the public.
However, there are some


research project.
She gave examples of bills
that are harmful to the
public's right to know. Some
of the worst ones, she said,
protect information held by
economic development agen-
cies. This might include a
company, such as a power
plant or a mega-store having
plans to locate in Florida.
This kind of information can
be kept secret for up to two
years or until a deal is nego-
tiated, at which point it may
be too late to do anything
about it.

Exemptions also protect
information about the incen-
tives offered to companies to
get them to move into an area
and information relating to a
company's performance.
Another exemption pro-
tects nursing homes by keep-
ing secret information re-
garding adverse incidents.
Though these are required to
be reported to the state, this
information is exempt from
public record unless govern-
ment agencies find probable
Cause. Since this'bill passed,
Petersen said, only 100 out of
thousands of reports have
been investigated.
"We need to know," she
said, "that the government is
doing what government
should be doing to protect the
elderly and those people who
can't protect themselves."
In spite of such concerns,
she said, both of these bills


will likely pass again.
In speaking about legisla-
tors themselves, Petersen
said that a vast majority of
elected officials vote against
the public's right to know.
"It's easier," she said, "to
name those people who are
concerned about open govern-
ment than it is to name those
people who are not concerned
with open government."
The biggest issue, she said,
is that when exemption bills
or open records bills come on
the floor, they're treated with
disdain, met with laughter
and derision, and receive
little discussion.

Every bill is an exemption
to the Constitution, she said.
"It's depressing to listen to
these kinds of debates and
see the lack of respect our
elected officials have for the
Constitution."
She mentioned several
representatives who she said
have supported the public's
right to know.


Representative Shelley
Vana introduced a bill that
would clarify aspects of the
public records law.
Former Representative
John Carassas had the last
expansive public records bill
in 2002, she said. It was a
resolution to amend the Con-
stitution to require a two
thirds majority in each cham-
ber to pass an exemption.
There are, she said, a num-
ber of legislators who repeat-
edly try to protect the public's
right to know by arguing
against exemptions or trying
to narrow exemptions.
There are currently 1,041
exemptions to the public
records law. A database of
these is available on the First
Amendment Foundation's
website, www.floridafaf.org.
The seminar is free to the
public. Visit the Walton
County Taxpayers Associa-
tion website,
www.waltontaxpayers.org,
for handouts to be used at the
seminar.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 20, 2006


Varicose veins unsightly, can be painful


tion.
For more information
about treating varicose veins,


talk to your physician to de-
termine the method that's
right for you.


By: Scott Hannum, Vascular
Surgeon, NOMC
Women and men alike have
long dreaded the appearance
of varicose veins. Not only
can they be unsightly; at
times they can be extremely
painful.
Although varicose veins
can be hereditary, any situa-
tion that exerts an unusual
amount of pressure on the
legs or abdomen for an ex-
tended period of time can
cause them. Standing for
long periods of time, obesity
and pregnancy are some of
the most prevalent causes of
varicosity. In rare instances,
the causes are chronic consti-
pation or tumors.
There are two separate sets
of veins in the legs surface
veins and deep veins. Surface
veins are the ones that be-
come problematic with vari-
cosity. Surface veins lie just
below the skin, and are deli-
cate and weak. Deep veins
lie well below the surface of
the skin, and are primarily
responsible for carrying
blood to the heart. About 90
percent of the body's blood is
transported to the heart by
the deep leg veins.
Varicosity is sometimes the
result of a defective valve in
the vein failing to close cor-
rectly, pulling blood back
down into the vessel instead
of pushing it up towards the
heart. Occasionally the flow
of blood from the legs to the
heart is slow, due to poor cir-
culation and blood pools in


the veins as a consequence.
Either of these circum-
stances can cause the ap-
pearance of varicose veins,
causing the veins to swell,
bulge and become blue and
twisted.
Some individuals claim
varicose veins cause chronic
itching or severe pain in the
area. Because the flow of
blood and nutrients is dimin-
ished, the skin surrounding
the affected vessel can be-
come hard and dry. In some
circumstances, ulcers can
form on the skin over the
vein.
Fortunately, the pain and
discomfort of varicosity can
be eased and the appearance
of veins can be controlled, to
a certain extent. Lying down
eases pressure in the veins,
and elevating your legs for 10
to 15 minutes several times
a day will improve the flow
of blood back to the heart.
Ask your physician about
wearing elastic stockings-
the stockings will offer sup-
port to weak, dilated vessels
and ease the swelling that
causes discomfort.
Regular exercise will keep
your blood pumping and re-
duce the likelihood of inac-
tive blood pooling in the
veins. Additionally, keeping
your weight down to a
healthy level will signifi-
cantly reduce pressure on
your legs. Taking an anti-
inflammatory drug such as
ibuprofen can alleviate pain
associated with swelling of
the veins.


Though surgery to remove
varicose veins is not usually
necessary, some individuals
may choose to have the un-
sightly veins removed for cos-
metic purposes. Your physi-
cian may also recommend
that you have them removed
if they are causing circula-
tory problems, blood clots or
skin irritations.
Call your physician imme-
diately if your varicose veins
are red this could be a sign
of phlebitis, an inflammation
of the vein that can lead to
life-threatening blood clots.
Surgeons use one of three
different procedures to re-
move varicose veins:
Sclerotherapy: The least
invasive of the three cdm-
monly used varicosity surger-
ies, sclerotherapy is used to
treat small "spider" veins.
An irritant that causes the
vein to scar internally is in-
jected into the vein while the
patient is standing up. The
irritating substance (scleros-
ing agent) causes the veins to
seal off and re-routes the
blood flow towards healthier
veins.
Vein stripping: Stripping is
recommended to remove
large varicose veins, and is
performed using a thin wire-
like instrument. The instru-
ment is inserted through in-
cisions at the bottom and top
of the vein, and the vein is
"stripped" from the inside.
The patient is required to
undergo general anesthesia
for this procedure.

What does the Walton County Grants Department do?
The Walton County Grants Department is under the Finance Division and is an integral part of
Walton County government. Its purpose is to promote the goals of Walton County through
pursuit, acquisition, and efficient management of grant funds from state and federal sources.
This allows the county to fund a number of projects without increasing ad valorem taxes.
The Responsibilities of the Grants Department are:
* Apply for state and federal grants for the Board of County Commissioners
* Work with the county project managers to administer the grant contracts
* Monitor all grant contracts
* Submit progress reports to the funding agencies
* Track all expenditures of grant and matching funds
* Request reimbursement of grant awards
* Submit closeout packages
* Actively search for grant opportunities
Locating and researching grant funding at the federal and state level is a multifaceted process.
There is a multitude of varying eligibility requirements, regulations, and policies associated
with requests for proposals.
A grant request consists of many technical elements that address eligibility, needs, program
and budget proposals, and evaluation of criteria determined by the granting agency.
During the fiscal year ending on September 30, 2005, Walton County had 47 state and federal
grants with a number of agencies and three disaster relief public assistance contracts with the
Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for Ivan, Dennis and Katrina. The grant
contracts totaled $21.3 million and the FEMA contracts were $9 million. Total funding in
2005 was $30.4 million.
For more information contact Grants Coordinator Angie Biddle at 892-8470.

Convicted meth
trafficker facing up to 30 years


By BRUCE COLLIER
Following his April 11 con-
viction by a Walton County
jury on a charge of traffick-
ing in methamphetamine, Ri-
chard A. Blane faces a poten-
tial minimum of 15 and a
maximum of 30 years in
prison. The court could also
impose a fine of up to
$250,000.
Last September, Blane
was convicted on charges of
escape and possession of
methamphetamine, and had
already been sentenced to 15
years for that conviction.


Blane had been at large
from September of 2004 un-
til January of 2005, when po-
lice in Georgia located him
hiding inside of a console tele-
vision set in a Decatur resi-
dence.
Blane still has five other
charges pending, one for fail-
ure to appear, and two counts
each of burglary and grand
theft.
' Blane's sentencing on the
trafficking conviction is set
for May 8, before Walton
County Circuit Court judge
W. Howard Laporte.


DeFuniak man

injured on C.R. 1087


By BRUCE COLLIER
A De Funiak Springs man
was injured when he lost con-
trol of his truck on the morn-
ing of April 14.
The accident took place on
C.R. 1087, south of South
Drive.
Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) investigating trooper
T. Hulion reported that a
truck was traveling north on
C.R. 1087. The driver was
Jonathan M. Lindros, 23, of
278 Carol Lane in DeFuniak
Springs.
Lindros reportedly lost
control of the truck, "for an
unknown reason," and drifted
onto the east shoulder of the
road.
Lindros overcorrected,
causing his truck to rotate
counterclockwise, leaving the
road.
The truck apparently over-
turned "at least two times"'
before coming to rest.
Lindros was transported to
Sacred heart Hospital in
Pensacola, with "incapacitat-
ing" injuries.
The FHP report indicates
that Lindros was not wearing
a seatbelt, and that alcohol or
drugs may have been in-


volved

IThe Confederacy Resting In Peace


Too many people, the ought of driving 2,200 miles in four days just
to see some grades woil sound like a chore To me, though, a better
adventure cannot be imagined.
My mother got me interested in history and genealogy at an early
age As a young boy, she and my grandmother took me and my brother
on a trip through what had been their old home place in central Ken-
tucky. The way they spoke of the past fascinated me then and has
stayed with me to this day Since that day. I have loved taking a drive
through the country on the trail of someone or something of historical
significance. Many times, curiously, the object of the original search is
not the gem of the journey.
First I drove to Charleston, South Carolina, and picked up Sharon.
mv trul't, traveling con-panion The next nmorrning ve headed west to a
smn ill t .'. c-alled Barni. ell The main goal of this expedition .as find-
ing Co:nted: rate gienerals In Barni.ell. v.e ,,.ere looking for Jo:hnson
Hagood vh..- had been a brigadier general and also a post war governor
of South Carolina This being our first stop. '.*e v.anted everything to- go
well, as our success ur lack thereof v.ould set the tone t;r the rest o:f the
day.


a- r 1A rt. ISC


THE AUTHOR standing in t he epansitv Mlagnolio


We found Gen Hagood's grave in the Holy Apostles Episcopal Churchyard. Thi- was a lovel:, place with an old
wooden church anid birds singing the songs of springtime
Next on the list was Aiken. Aiken is a thriving communityt, and has an extension of thle University ,of South
Carolina in town. Here, we were looking for Gen. Gabriel Rains Gen Rains is known to have invented the land
mine. We found his grave in St. Taddeus Episcopal Church',ard A wonderfully- groomed cemetery sat next to an
equally well-maintained church and school.
Strom Thurmon is in the same cemetery as Gen Matthew Butler Willow Brook Cemetery is a little run down,
as is the town of Dedgefieid. It's a little sad because I see this in so many small southern towns.
Our next stop took us briefly out of South Carolina to Augusta, Georgia. Augusta's Magnolia Cemetery is huge.
Cemeteries this large would take days to cover without some help. Fortunately, this help came in the fornm of a
cemetery director.
We located seven generals in Magnolia alone and Augusta still had two more generals to be found. \We found
General Cumming in Summerville Cemetery and General Walker in his.family's graveyard. The Walker plot is
adjacent to Augusta College and is another pretty setting.
As nice as Augusta is, we were ready to get back on the country roads. After crossing the South Carolina state
line, we headed to Cokesbury in search of Tabernacle Cemeter\ and tw .: more generals. The tabernacle at Taber- .
nacle Cemetery no longer exists. This spot could truly be a m,-.vie set Towering oaks, Spanish moss hanging and-:
azaleas bloomed, all in the middle of nowhere. Generals Evans and Gary surely are at peace in this setting.
With the day wearing thin. we had one more stop to make, Abbeville. Long Cane Cemetery is located on the edge. "
of this small town. As the sun was going down. w\e located G;eneral McGowan Da. one had gone well.
Day two started with a short drive to Pendleton At St. Paul's Episcopal Church-y ard. we found generals Stevens.
and Bee. General Bee has been.credited',with giving "Stonvewall" Jackson his famous nickname. Also Bee an7ti4-..I
Stevens had been brothers-in-law..While in this churchyard, we struck up a conversation with several gentlemen
working on St. Paul's. These geritlenen informed us of a connection with Pendleton, John C. Calhoun and Cltfeson
University, which wa's onl.,a couiplenThles up the road. Granted, this has nothing to do with generals, but Clemson
was close and besides,.this-was~ anadenture;... The campus at Clemson is one of the gems I spoke about
earlier. The whole canmpusis on Caltho.un tformer'plantation and his house sits right in the middle of it. History r
truly is a continuous riever- ending web of small events and coincidence
After playing tourist at Clemson, it wa back to general hunting and on to Union. We found General Wallace in
Forest Lawn Cemetery. Union is a perfec''example of the antebellum southern feel. With large white houses near
the railroad tracks, time has-stood still.for most of Union. The next two locations presented us \with a bit ot a
challenge. Both the Donbuant and Chesnut grave sites were on now-abandoned homesteads outside of Schester
and Camden, respectively. General Donotiinths grave is about one half mile off the rodd and a pretty easy one to
locate. General Chesnut's is not so simple. One has to hike over two miles, being sure to take three proper turns..
on a dirt path to locate the Chesnut Family Cemetery. Buried alongside the general is his wife, Mary Boykin.
Chesnut, the .famou. Civil War era diarist. This fact made the walk w ell worth it. We were on the downhill legaof' :
the trip, now., with only.Camden and Georgetown to go. .
Dayjthree fou~id us inrCamden's.Quaker Cemetery. This cemetery is immaculately kept and steeped in Revolr. ..
tionary.as welias CivilWar history. We found three generals and several other significant individuals, include" ...
Abraham Lmncoln's b rther-in-law, who was a confederate surgeon.
Georgetown was~&btr last stop before going back to Charleston. We found Gen. Trapier in the Prince George -.,
Winyan Episcopql ..hu'rchyard. It was another fine example of an old Episcopal sanctuary and a fitting end to oi j.
tour.
'The next da;,. Sharon and 1 visited ie aircraft carrier Yorktown. It was here that we discovered the true gem of 'C
the trip, "theipresent '
Sitting on the stern of this ship, so full ofthepast, and looking out at Charleston harbor with Fort Sumt.-r in the
distae;.c-was aiwe-inspiring.
It has been said that to understand the future, one must understand the past and I agree with this, up to a
point It has-also been said that the joy is in the journey, not in the destii.,tion. There is some truth in this also
NIy feelings are that we should enjoy our surroundings now, because after all, the present is as much a part of
the past as it is the future

Concert, to be held April 23

It will begin at 3 p.m. and will

Handbells were reportedly
invented so that change ring-

much like hanging bells, the
handbells permitted practic-
ing in warm places rather
than cold and damp bell lofts.

Buying a Newly-Built Home?
Ten Benefits of Using a Real Estate Professional
by Christa Merrifield-Mitchell, Merrifield & Pilcher Realty
It might not seen necessary to involve a real estate professional in a
transaction where a buyer can deal directly with a builder. However, by
using a real estate professional, you have someone to protect your inter-
ests and guide you along the right path. There are 10 advantages to using
a real estate professional when buying a newly constructed home.
1. Just as a real estate professional calls on experiences and knowl-
edge of an area to help buyers locate pre-owned homes in a community,
he or she can also direct buyers interested in newly-built homes to devel-
opments and communities that match client specifications.
2. A sales professional can suggest builders with reputations for deliver-
ing a high-quality product, responding quickly to issues,, and being finan-
cially sound.
3. A sales professional may be familiar with how a builder prices his
products and where there may be room to negotiate price or upgrades.
4. Without representation, you are one buyer purchasing only one
home. But a sales professional can significantly impact a builder's bottom
line by providing a steady supply of customers. This leverage may work in
your favor at the negotiating table. [Note: The builder may require your
sales professional to accompany you on your first visit to the site. Check
with the builder.]
5. The lender approval process may go smoother if a sales professional
schedules visits, accompanies you to lenders, and helps expedite required
documents.
6. What may seem like a simple transaction can grow legally complex
and risky. A sales professional is familiar with those complexities and risks
inherent in the homebuying process. When such questions arise, we can
steer you to the right advisors and services you may require.
7. When relocating to a new area, sales professionals can be particu-
larly valuable resources. In addition to providing local area information
regarding schools, day care or elder care services, public transportation,
proposed development, and so on,,once construction is under way, they
can periodically stop by the work site, supply-you with progress reports,
and photograph or videotape phases of the'construction.
8. A sales professional can assist you as you face hundreds of design
choices and consider which upgrades could potentially add value to the
home when it comes time to sell.
9. A sales professional can accompany you at the site while you okay
the plumbing and electrical locations prior to dry w'alihng. as well as on the
walk-through or builder orientation.
10. Lastly, most often the builder pays the sales professional's commis-
sion. You enjoy individual attention and support at no cost to you.

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.

Seeds from

the Sower

In the jungles of South
America we came onto two
missionaries who bathed
daily, dressed for dinner and
kept their bodies and souls in
good shape.
"Why?" asked our friend.
"We have a fear of going
native," they replied.
We met other Americans in
the jungles. Their moral
standards fell apart. Their
bodies and souls became
dirty.
Something like this hap-
pens to some Christians who,
living with non-Christians,
fail to maintain a godly tes-
timony. They go native by
imitating the life about them.
Don't copy the behavior of
the world. Be a new and dif-
ferent person. Copy Christ!



Thank You
The family of Fredrick
LeGrande Caswell would like
to thank everyone who
offered their condolences, in
so many ways, during this
time of great loss.
Your acts of kindness warm
the heart and sooth the soul.


1


Thought and care are'beyond compare,
Truly precious, one uniquely rare,
An angel shining the brightest halo,
Adorning indeed a beautiful glow?

A gift from Heaven, ever sent to bless,
Treasured truly, as you may-guess.
On such an angel, you can depend,
Love in plenty, for one and all to lend.

This brief reflection in meditation,
Relays quiet sweetly, with dedication,
What a treasure daughters truly are,
Love beyond boundaries, bright as a star.

You may not be with us in body,
But will always be close in our hearts.

We love and miss you very much.
Happy Birthday baby.
Love you always,
Mom

three hits and four RBIs.
Heather Hybiske added an-
other two hits and two RBIs.
Christie Wickersham got

Seahawks trample Bulldogs in double-header


By CHUCK HINSON
You know when two
intracounty rivals go head-
to-head, it's going to be good.
That is what happened on
April 11 when the South Wal-
ton Lady Seahawks and the
Freeport Lady Braves went
at it in a double header. The
Seahawks took both games,
11-8 and 8-6. .
It had only been a week
since South Walton beat the

Freeport team for the first
time in the school's history.
Then a few days later, beat
them twice in the same day.
In the opener, South Wal-
ton came alive in the sixth
inning with four runs to steal
the game.
Tina Rodkey, Katheryn
Kenner, Brittany Jay, Brooke
Cannon and Julie Edwards
all had hits in the first game.
Cannon and Edwards both


drove in two runs, while
Rodkey and Jay each had an
RBI.
For Freeport Cassie

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 20, 2006


Sports News & Notes


by Patrick Casey
The Miami Hurricanes
won the three-game series
with FSU in baseball over the
weekend in Tallahassee. Mi-
ami captured 7-3 and 7-5 vic-
tories while getting bombed
16-1 in their lone loss. Miami
improved to 26-13 overall and
11-7 in the ACC while FSU
fell to 33-6 overall and 13-5
in ACC play. FSU will host
Florida on Wednesday night,
then host a three-game series
with Georgia Tech this week-
end.
The Florida baseball team
continues to struggle as they
dropped two-of-three games
to Tennessee over the week-
end. Florida salvaged a 15-4
win on Sunday after dropping
the first two games of the se-
ries. Florida is 22-18 overall
and 5-10 in SEC play. Florida
will host Auburn this week-
end. The Tigers are fresh off
a series sweep of Mississippi
State over the weekend. Au-
burn has struggled this sea-
son as the Tigers are 18-21
overall and 6-9 in SEC play.
Florida State's Alexander
Johnson has made himself
eligible for the NBA draft.
Johnson, who just finished
his junior year on the Semi-
noles basketball team, has
not hired an agent, keeping
open the possibility that he
could return for his senior
season if he changes his mind


by June 18 and removes him-
self from the draft. Johnson
had a strong junior season,
but his decision is curious as
he still spent a lot of time on
the bench with foul trouble in
key games.
The University of Florida's
Dalila Eshe was selected by
the Seattle Storm in the sec-
ond round of the WNBA Draft
with the 25th overall pick.
Eshe, who played at Florida
High in Tallahassee, is a 6-
foot-3 forward who becomes
the 15th different Gator
picked in one of the first two
rounds in the history of the
WNBA draft. Eshe averaged
14.2 points per game as a se-
nior and hit 80.2% of her free
throws in her career, the sec-
ond highest free throw per-
centage in a career in Lady
Gator history.
Charles Butler, a basket-
ball player for Ruby Gainer
High School, which is in
Paxton's district, signed to
play at Alabama Southern.
Butler averaged 21 points a
game last season.
Kyle Coulahan is a player
to watch for the Pensacola
Catholic football team next
season. The junior lineman is
6-foot-5 and weighs 290
pounds. He has verbally com-
mitted to sign with Auburn
next season after having 65
tackles and six sacks for the
Crusaders last season.


The OWC baseball team
took two games from North
Florida last weekend to im-
prove to 30-18 overall and 8-
13 in Panhandle Conference
play. The Raiders have four
games remaining on the year,
but have already been elimi-
nated from state playoff con-
tention.
At least one team in the
Area 5 softball teams will
claim a berth to the state soft-
ball playoffs which will begin
next week. Walton and South
Walton face each other in a
Tuesday semifinal in District
1, Class 3A, with the winner
earning a berth into the dis-
trict championship game on
Thursday at Northview, and
a state playoff berth. Paxton,
Freeport, and Ponce de Leon
all need victories in their
semifinal games to qualify as
well. As many as four teams,
could reach the state softball:
playoffs this season. WWEO
FM 103.9 will carry a district
championship game on
Thursday on the radio, likely
to be a third meeting between
Walton(20-3) and Northview
(12-6) for the district title.
Ponce de Leon's baseball
team had a rough week last
week dropping three games
to fall to 17-4 on the season.
PDL was ranked #7 in Class
2A.
The OWC softball team
split a pair of games with


Pensacola Junior College last
week to go to 35-16 overall.
The Lady Raiders have had
the same problem as the
men's baseball team, little
success in the Panhandle
Conference. The Lady Raid-
ers are 4-10 in conference
play and will not qualify for
the state tournament.
Alex Smith was the only
athlete at Walton to qualify
for the regional track meet in
Class 2A that will be held at
Jacksonville Bolles on Thurs-
day. Smith finished second in
the long jump.
South Walton's boys and
girls track teams both quali-
fied for the regional track
meet in Class A that will be
held at Tallahassee Chiles
High School on Saturday.
Paxton and Freeport will also
have individual athletes com-
peting in some of the field
events.
Former Port St. Joe pitch-
er Travis Burge has been
pitching well for the Florida
State Seminoles. The fresh-
man left-handed reliever is
coming out of the bullpen in
his first season with the club.
Burge is 1-0 in 16 games with
a 3.66 ERA.
FSU signee Cody Johnson
is having a stellar season for
the Mosley Dolphins. John-
son, an outfielder, is one of
the top players in the Florida
Panhandle.

tying and winning runners in

The Pirates will advance to
the District 2 championship
game on Friday night at 6
p.m. when they will host
Cottondale for the district
title. Cottondale eliminated,
Panama City Bozeman 15-5


in the other semifinal con-
test.
PDL(8-12) got a 2-run
homer from shortstop Tyla
Yates in the top of the first
inning to take a 2-0 lead, only
- to see Vernon-respond-with a


half of the inning to tie the
game at 2-2.

Both teams scored runs in
the fifth inning to tie the
game at 3-3. The seventh
inning saw the Pirates plate
a pair of runs. Lacey Griffin


had a key single off the glove
of one of the Yellowjackets in-
fielders for an RBI, while
Savannah Whigham had an
infield single that scored an-
other Pirate run for a 5-3
lead.
-,,, ,Harperr'ran'into trouble
against the meat of the
Yellowjackets order in the
bottom of the seventh. An
error in the outfield allowed

ALL 9-1-1 EMERGENCY CALLS in Walton County come to this facil-
ity on Davis Lane in DeFuniak Springs, and are dispatched to the appro-
priate law enforcement, medical or fire department.


Who you gonna call?




911 issue




heats up again


by Leah Stratmann
It would probably be accurate to
say that when the services of emer-
gency personnel are needed and a
person dials 911, no thought %what-
ever is given to who might be re-
ceiving the call. The essence is an
Emergency and there is a need for
law enforcement, fire trucks or
emergency medical assistance. One.
* call can connect the caller to one of
three services and where this call
goes to has been a subject of debate
and divisiveness in Walton County
for some time.
In February, the Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) denied a re-
quest by the South Walton Fire Dis-
trict (SWFD) to become a second-
ary 911-service center. A secondary
answering point would enable
SWFD to
receive 911 calls for fire and rescue
south of the Bay and to view caller
information and data received at
the county Emergency Operations
Center (EOC), the agency that is
currently the central 911 entity for
the county.
,SWFD spokesman Sean Hughes'
said the primary reason for the cen-
ter is it would allow SWFD dis-
patchers to speak directly with the
callers. "We have no ability to talk
to the caller," Hughes said. "In this
line of work, seconds count."
Under the current system, a
caller dialing 911 is asked the na-
ture of the emergency. Do they need
fire, police or medical service? The
dispatcher, at the press of a button,
then directs the appropriate agency
to respond.
Capt. Danny Glidewell of the
sheriff's office said, "We can't be in
a position where we can't talk to a
complainant. We do not want our
deputies put in harm's way. The
sheriff will continue to be opposed
to a secondary center."
Glidewell emphasized that EMS
will not respond to a scene until it
is secure. With all calls being an-
swered in one place, a dispatcher
can stay on the line while various
agencies are dispatched, With the
other, system, Glidewell says the
dispatcher would have to choose
one over the other. "Not enough
thought has been put into this," he
said.
"There is no reason to spend mil-
lions on something that could pro-
vide worse service, or at best, be
exactly the same," he emphasized.
Hughes' position mirrors
Glidewell's to a point. Both entities
want to talk to the caller. "The av-
erage person doesn't understand
the nature of 911 calls. If we had a


call center here, it would lesson the
load of the EOC," he said. "Accidents
and mistakes will happen because
we cannot talk to the callers."
The issue has come to the fore-
front again because of duplicate
street names. Recently a mobile
home fire resulted in fire person-
nel being dispatched to an address
in DeFuniak Springs instead of an
address in south Walton County.
The name of the street was identi-
cal. Several minutes of response
time were lost due to the mix-up
and because the 911 call was placed
from a cellular phone.
The Walton County Taxpayers
Association (WCTA) has dissected
this issue from every possible angle.
WCTA president Bonnie
McQuiston spoke with Okaloosa
County officials about cell phones
and said the Okaloosa County
EEOC director told her cell phone
calls will always go to the main cen-
ter in the county and "as long as
we have duplicate and sometimes
triplicate street names, there will
be trouble."
Hughes said cell phone calls
placed to 911 show the address of
the nearest tower and it is up to the
dispatcher to find out the correct
address.
"The fire district has gotten very
rich," McQuiston said. "They should
only be looking at fires. That was
the task in mind when they were
created. Not only do they receive
the ad valorem taxes from every-
one south of the Bay, they also re-
ceive impact fees from every new
development. The WCTA position is
that if SWFD got the 911 center,
they would be increasing personnel
to handle the calls. Right now the
district gets about 5000 calls a year
for emergency service, wrecks and
beach response. The sheriff's office
receives 25,000 calls a year. We are
much opposed to splitting 911 as
the fire district should not answer
sheriff's office calls."
Further, McQuiston said resi-
dents south of the Bay already pay
92 percent of the county's total
property tax accumulation, part of
which pays for 911 services.
"South Walton County residents
also pay a separate tax to SWFD.
Why should we start paying a sec-
ond time for '1 service, when we
already conLibute taxes to the
county for this?"

issue, including the position of the
sheriff's office, the SWFD, and the
EOC, visitwww.waltontaxpayers.

"I feel like we're being held hos-
tage," said Roxann Frey.
Roxann Frey and her husband
Frank live just north of a
beachfront area that had been
planned to be included in Walton
County's large-scale beach restora-
tion project---but where restoration
is now looking "iffy" because of the
opposition of three beachfront prop-
erty owners.
The Freys and 15 of their neigh-
bors now plan to notify the three
hold-out property owners that they
will sue them in the event there is
future storm damage to their
homes resulting from the "negli-
gence" of the three property own-
ers in blocking beach restoration in
their area. The beachfront homes
in question are located near the
Sandtrap Road public beach access.
In June 2005, the three property
owners participated in a'unsuccess-
ful challenge to the state's issuance
of a permit for the beach restora-
tion project, now underway, which
is to cover five miles on the west
end ofWalten County and two ad-
joining miles in the city of Destin.
The opponents argued that the res-
toration would negatively impact
their property rights and their en-
joyment of the gulf waters, among
other objections.
. The project is widening the beach
by from 75 to 100 feet, and the state
of Florida position is that the newly
.created beach will be state property
subject to the use of the public.
'The three beachfront property


owners were the only ones to spe-
cifically deny Walton County con-
struction easements in connection
with the restoration project. In ad-
dition, in Dec. 2005, an attorney
representing them also notified the
Walton County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) that tres-
passing on the three properties "for
any purpose" could result in law en-
forcement being called in or pros-
ecution.
The beach restoration project be-
gan in March 2006. In spite of the
three property owners' threats of
law enforcement or legal-action, on
March 27 the BCC voted to restore
the section of beach in front of those
homes along with the remainder of
the five miles in western Walton
County.
However, upon arriving at the
section in question on April 10, the
project contractor, Great Lakes
Dredge & Dock Company, opted to
skip the beach in front of the three
homes and proceed to another lo-
cation to continue work.
On April 11, David Hallman, di-
rector of Walton County Legal Ser-
vices, presented the BCC with a let-
ter from the contractor which ex-
pressed extreme displeasure at be-
ing placed in the position of being
threatened by lawsuits for trespass
in connection with placing sand on
the beach next to the three proper-
ties.
William F. Pagendarm, Great
Lakes Dredge & Dock Company
vice president wrote, "One of the
points were are considering is that


the current contract calls for us to;'
indemnify the city of Destin and
Walton County for certain items.,
We wish to make it clear that we
do not wish to indemnify the city of
Destin and Walton County for these
issues that are beyond our control
and that we were not made aware
of prior to the bid."
However, Hallman maintained
that the contractor had in fact been
aware prior to bidding on the con-
tract of the situation with the law-
suit threats and the need to indem '
nify (secure against damages) the
city and county. He added that the
company had been assured that the:
county would be in court right by.
their side in the event of lawsuits--
-but that the agreement had been
that it would be the contractor's'
role to fight the property owners'
lawsuits.
Pagendarm also rieqtisted a
change to the contract that would
remove the requirement for the
contractor to "indemnify and save
harmless afiy party."
District i Commissioner Scott
Brannon asked Hallman if he an-
ticipated that the contractor would
refuse to restore the beach in front
of the three homes if the county did
not agree.
"That's the game of chicken that
is being played," Hallman re-
sponded. He told the commission-
ers that, since there are only five
companies equipped to do this type
of project in the Southeast, it could

BEACH RESTORATION construction was moving west from Beach House condominiums on April 14.


Walton beach restoration half finished


by Dotty Nist
Over 14,000 feet of critically
eroded beach has now been restored
in the joint Walton County/Destin
large-scale beach restoration
project.

Brad Pickel, beach management
director for the South Walton Tour-
ist Development Council, reports
that 38 percent of the total project
is now complete and over 50 per-
cent of the five-mile-long Walton


County portion.
Construction is expected to con-
tinue westward this week past
Amalfi Coast and the Surfside Con-
dominiums beach area, approach-
ing the beach across from the Sea-
scape/Majestic Sun properties.
Upon the expected completion of
the latter area next week, the

County adopts policy



for memorial markers


By DOTTY NIST

Uniform procedures are
now in place to memorialize
people deceased due to road-
way accidents and to encour-
age safe driving on county
roads in Walton County.
On April 11, the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners unanimously
approved the new operating
procedures, which were pro-
posed by Aaron Warren, as-
sistant county engineer. The
memorial marker policy was
developed as part of the Wal-
ton County Public Works
Department as part of the
department's long-term stra-
tegic plan.
The policy applies to
county roads. Warren said
that the public works depart-
ment studied the policies of
neighboring counties prior to
proposing the operating pro-


cedures. He commented that
.they are identical those in
place on state highways.
Requests for memorial
markers are to be submitted
in writing to the public works
department. The deceased
person's name may be dis-
played on the marker if de-
sired but no additional deco-
rations or ornaments will be
allowed. Memorials will bear
the message "drive safely in
memory."
The person requesting the
memorial will be required to
pay a $75 cost for its con-
struction, installation, main-
tenance and removal by
county staff. Memorials will
stay in place for 12 months
unless it becomes necessary
to remove them sooner.
All memorials will consist
of a 15-inch diameter round
aluminum panel with black
lettering. Walton County per-


sonnel will install them at
the back edge of the mowing
limits on county roads. Pub-
lic works will determine the
exact location for the marker,
which may not necessarily be
at the exact location of the
fatality, depending on con-
straints such as space restric-
tion.
The public will not be al-
lowed to obstruct traffic in
the area of memorials, for
instance by stopping or park-
ing on roadways near the
markers.
Memorials installed by the
public on county roads out-
side this approved procedure
will be subject to being re-
moved by the public works
department.

Additional information on
the memorial policy is avail-
able from the public works
department at 892-8109.


"RAIDERS OF THE LOSTART" bringing jazz on stage at OWC, April 11.


"Raiders of the Lost Art" offers jazz at OWC


By BRUCE COLLIER
A stage full of talented mu-
sicians and singers offered up
a sampling of classic jazz,
swing, and pop music on
April 11 at Okaloosa Walton
College (OWC)'s main stage.
"Raiders of the Lost Art,"
was a joint production of
OWC and the University of
West Florida (UWF). OWC
teacher and musician Dr.
Cheryl Jones conducted the
jazz band.

Musicians performing in-
cluded Raymond Holland Jr.
on bass, Jake Colvin on gui-
tar, Rodger Vix on drums,
Kris Kuss and Daniel Hutson
on sax, Ashley Herbstreith on
flute and piano, Bill Lofe on
trombone, and Jace DelGado,
Jennifer Morgan, Brian
O'Connell, and Tyler Whaley
on trumpet.
Wendy Justice, Elliot Ger-
man, Patty Harcrow-Orr, and
Jeff Mazon sang with the
band. Saxophonist Michael
Mancini sat in as a guest so-
loist.


The band played 14 pieces,
showcasing the works of Fats
Waller, Burt Bacharach,
Count Basie, Duke Ellington,
Les Browne, Billy Strayhorn,
Antonio Carlos Jobim, John
Coltrane, Glenn Miller,
Thelonius Monk, Jerry Gray,
Earl Hagan, and Henry
Mancini.
Highlights included Kriss
Kuss' skillful solo work on
Harlem Nocturne, a piece
which could serve as the
soundtrack to every hard
boiled detective movie ever
made.

Michael Mancini, in his
80th year and still blowing
strong, fronted impressively
on Take the A-Train. Jones
gave Mancini a warm intro-
duction, mentioning his asso-
ciation with bandleader/com-
poser Duke Ellington.
Trumpeters Jace DelGado
and Jennifer Morgan stood
out respectively on Satin
Doll and 'Round Midnight.
The latter was a standard in
the repertoire of trumpet leg-


end Miles Davis.
Elliot German sang At
Last, a love song traditionally
sung by female vocalists, but
equally effective when per-
formed by a man.
Other outstanding solo
work came from dummer
Rodger Vix on Cotton Tail, a
swing classic done in the best
Ellington style, with conduc-
tor Jones strutting and
swinging along with the
band.
The audience also enjoyed
the band's takes on Ain't
Misbehavin', Sentimental
Journey, Cousin Mary, and
String of Pearls.
Jones and the band fin-
ished up in style with Henry
Mancini's universally-recog-
nized Pink Panther theme.
The piece, soundtrack of a
dozen films and cartoons, of-
fered a last chance for solo-
ists Kuss and DelGado, and
left the audience eager for an
encore.
Sad to say, none was forth-
coming, and the evening
ended all too soon.


April is Child Abuse Prevention month


DAYNA SCHAUMANN, far left, of Santa Rosa Beach, had the opportunity to meet Ala-
Sbama Gov. Bob Rice~7 who visited the University of Mobile campus on April 6 to discuss
economic developmentzwith members of local chambers of commerce. -


Child Abuse Prevention
Month has been observed
each April since its first
presidential proclamation in
1983. The Department of
Children & Families is ask-
ing communities to show
their commitment to putting
an end to child abuse and
.,neglect by wearing a blue rib-


bon every day during Child
Abuse Prevention Month.
To obtain a blue ribbon,
email Dineen
Cicco@def.state.fl.us.
The color blue signifies
hope. Wearing a blue ribbon
is a way of reminding citizens
that child abuse prevention
is everyone's business. PALS,


Prevention Program urges
everyone to wear a blue rib-
bon throughout April in sup-
port of child abuse preven-
tion efforts across Florida.

abuse, call 1-800-96ABUSE

Water Saving


Tips


*When adjusting water temperatures,

instead of turning water flow up, try turning
it down. If the water is too hot or cold, turn
the offender down rather than increasing

water flow to balance the temperature.


SIf the toilet flush handle frequently sticks

in the flush position, letting water run

constantly, replace or adjust it.


Consider using a commercial car wash

Roll Call


County may


seek state land


for recreation


By DOTTY NIST
The Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) has directed staff to
prepare a resolution to ask
the State of Florida for trans-
fer of 150 acres of state land
in south Walton County for
the purpose of a recreational
facility combined with a
school site.
OnApril 11, the BCC voted
unanimously in favor of mov-
ing forward with the resolu-
tion.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows brought up
the item at the regular BCC
meeting on that evening.
Meadows explained that
"multiple organizations" are
competing for the use of
Helen McCall Park in Santa
Rosa Beach, where 12 to 13
acres of ball fields are avail-
able for youth sports.
Meadows spoke of over-
crowding at the park's ball
fields.
"If we don't have these
parks aAd recreational facili-
ties, it's going to be very dif-
ficult to attract businesses,"
she commented.
Meadows envisioned a cen-
trally located site between
CR-83 and CR-283, but later
added, "We're not married to
that location."
Two members of the Wal-
ton County Recreation Board,
Bo Rutledge and Dave Lovel,
were present in support of the
resolution.
Rutledge remarked that
there are 28 local boys' and
girls' sports teams and that
a 50-meter pool is Weeded in
order for the county's aquatic
program to be competitive.
He also spoke to the need for
a multi-purpose recreation
--building to.be.located on .the-
same property as the ball
fields and pool.
Lovel commented that
there is no designated facil-
ity for soccer in south Walton
County. He said he under-
stood that the state land is
considered "somewhat sacred
grounds" but added, "we don't
have any other lands to get."
District 4 Commissioner-
Ro Cuchens suggested en-
larging the land request to
150 acres to allow the facility
"room to grow." District 2
Commissioner Ken Pridgen
suggested combining a school
site with the property.
Ed Goodwin of Fort Panic
spoke in favor of the request,
saying that he could think of
"no better use for 80 to 150
acres."
Local resident Dana
Akridge also voiced support of
obtaining the land for recre-
ation. "We need to get the
land regardless of where it
is," she said.
Akridge highlighted the
need for a place for locals to
"go as a family," and also
where tourists can go "other
than the beach."
Celeste Cobena, of the con-
servation organization Beach
to Bay Connection, warned
the commissioners that they
would likely "be wasting your
time and money" in attempt-
ing to get state land for the
facility.
She observed that the tar-
geted area consists of prop-
erty purchased for preserva-
tion, Point Washington State
Forest, and Grayton Beach
State Park.
Cobena remarked that
these lands had not been ac-
quired for the purpose of the
type of activities that were
being proposed.
She noted that guidelines
for release of state preserva-
tion land have become even
more stringent since the
1990's, when Walton County
was able to purchase a little
over 100 acres of such land
after a long, difficult process.
That land became the site
of the South Walton Govern-
mental and Educational Cen-
ter, where South Walton
Courthouse Annex, South


Walton High School, and
other public facilities are now


located.
"I would suggest that you
look at private land," Cobena
advised.
"I'm suggesting you don't
look at the preservation
land," said Santa Rosa Beach
resident Bonnie McQuiston.
McQuiston said that the
area being considered seemed
"rather remote" for the type
of use being considered. She
suggested looking at private
or state land being contem-
plated for surplussing.
Commission Chairman
Scott Brannon suggested that
citizens opposing the pro-
posal bring alternate solu-
tions for the commissioners to
consider in future public ses-
sions. McQuiston readily
agreed to do so.
Meadows' motion to have
a resolution requesting the
150-acre recreational facility
and school site prepared car-
ried unanimously.


Walton County Board of County Commissioners

April 11 regular meeting

A yes vote was to approve the proposal.

Proposal by Aaron Warren, assistant county engi-
neer, for adoption of a uniform policy for placement of me-
morial markers in the county right-of-way.
Motion by Commissioner Cuchens to approve the policy
with a wording substitution of "may" for "shall" to provide
flexibility for the requirement that memorials installed con-
trary to the adopted policy be removed by county public works.
The motion was approved unanimously: Brannon-
yes; Cuchens-yes; Jones-yes; Meadows-yes; Pridgen-
yes.

Proposal by Warren for approval of $640,000 low bid
by C.W. Roberts for intersection improvements at the CR3280/
U.S. 331 intersection.
Motion by Cuchens to award the contract in conjunc-
tion with "value engineering" to reduce the project cost.
The motion was approved unanimously.

Request by the Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Com-
pany, contractor for the large-scale Walton County/Destin
beach restoration project, for an amendment to the project
contract that would release the contractor from indemnifica-
tion requirements in connection with any litigation filed in
connection with properties where access is denied.
A motion for denial by Cuchens carried unanimously.

REALLY NEW informational kiosks are being installed at 20 beach access locations
maintained by the South Walton Tourist Development Council (TDC.) After receiving in-
formation from the TDC in March that the first new kiosk had been installed at the Van
Ness Butler Regional Beach Access between Seaside and WaterColor, on April 3 we took a
photo at that location, which ran in last week's newspaper. However, the new kiosk had in
fact not been installed, and the photo therefore showed the non-new-and-improved model.
It has since been changed out. The new kiosks being placed at accesses featuring lifeguard
service will feature an attached sign displaying the hours the service is being provided
during the beach season.


Request by Pat Blackshear, county growth manage-
ment director, for approval to negotiate a draft interlocal
agreement whereby county planning and engineering services
would be provided for review of development proposals in the
City of Paxton, with permitting fees for those services
coming to the county.
A motion for approval by Pridgen carried unani-
mously.

Another request by Blackshear for approval to accept
one-page summary applications for small scale amendments
from May 11 through June 13, with a lottery drawing to be
held on June 15 to choose amendments for which complete
application submittals will be accepted within 60 days; ap-
plications not submitted within that time period to be re-
placed by other
applications in order of drawing at the lottery.
A motion for approval by Jones carried unanimously.

Proposal by David Hallman, county attorney, to ap-
prove getting an opinion from legal consultant Susan Kelsey
regarding the advisability of filing an appeal with the Florida
Supreme Court in the Sun Seekers litigation, which involves
contested property that the county believes to be a public
beach access, with Kelsey to determine if there is sufficient
record in the matter to proceed.
A motion by Cuchens to move forward to engage
Kelsey was approved unanimously.

Proposal by Shirl Williams, assistant county admin-
istrator, for approval of the CR-30Atraffic study recommen-
dations.
Motion by Meadows for approval of the short-term recom-
mendations from the study which are already adopted as part
of the county capital improvements program, a total $9.5
million worth of projects which will include two traffic sig-
nals or roundabouts, six intersection turn lanes, signage up-
grades, multi-use pathway upgrades, and other improve-
ments. Meadows envisioned most being implemented through
the proportional fair share program.
The motion was approved unanimously.

Proposal and motion by Meadows to direct staff to
prepare a resolution requesting a 150-acre parcel of state land
as a site for a public recreation facility and school site.
The motion was approved unanimously.

Additional proposal and motion by Meadows to move
forward with four items regarding.the Timpoochee Trail
(south Walton bike/pedestrian path):
Retaining a bikeway consultant to design a signage sys-
tem;
bidding out a contract for production and placement of
signs;
finalizing the bike path maintenance contract; and
granting the Friends of the Timpoochee Trail support or-
ganization a seat on the county Technical Review Commit-
tee.
The motion was approved unanimously.

Proposal and motion by Cuchens to set a public hear-
ing to consider extending the 50-foot building height limit
existing south of the bay to the remainder of the county.
The motion was approved unanimously.

Petition by Noventa Ocho, LLC,Tfor abandonment of
all right-of-ways within the Frangista Beach, second addi-
tion subdivision, located north of Daytona Street and east of
South Holiday Road, in order for developer to pave the subdi-
vision streets with pavers and gate the community. In re-
sponse to neighborhood concerns, developer's representative
Dean Burgis stated that no access to U.S. 98 has been se-
cured but that it will continue to be pursued.
A motion for approval of the abandonment by
Cuchens carried unanimously.

Two development proposals were approved unani-
mously: Pinewood Preserve, a 33-lot single-family subdivi-
sion on a 5.078-acre site at the southwest corner of the North
Orange Street and Pinewood Lane intersection; and
Ridgewalk PUD, a 77-lot single-family residential PUD on a
19.48-acre site on the east side of CR-393, north of Cypress
Breeze Drive and south of Cypress Pond Road.

Neighbors



cost the county millions to get
one of those to come in and
restore the small section at a
later date. Therefore it was
his opinion that the contrac-
tor would be liable for dam-
ages to the county if part of
the contracted work were
omitted.
Hallman recommended
that the commissioners reject
the proposed amendment to
the contract and hold the con-
tractor to the original terms
and scope of work, including
the Sandtrap Road area sec-
tion.
District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones stated that he
still supported the previous
BCC position calling for a
continuous restoration
project.
"We are not doing this to
hurt anyone," commented
District 4 Commissioner Ro
Cuchens, who moved to reject
the proposed amendment.
The motion was approved
unanimously.
An April 12 letter to the
BCC from the contractor re-
vealed that the restoration of
the section in question at
some point in the project had
not been ruled out.
"We anticipate that if Great
Lakes is able to fill on the
denied access properties be-
fore the project is over, we
will incur additional costs
due to out of sequence work,"
wrote Great Lakes Dredge.&
Dock Company Vice Presi-
dent Kyle D. Johnson.
"Great Lakes reserves the
right to seek additional com-
pensation for these increased
costs under the terms of the
Contract," he added.
Meanwhile, the neighbors
of the Sandtrap Road area
project opponents have be-


FROM FRONT

gun to speak out.
Frank Frey told theThe
Beach Breeze that the neigh-
bors were "very upset" to
hear that the three property
owners' opposition could ac-
tually prevent restoration
sand from going on the beach
in their area.
He said the neighbors have
tried to speak to the three
owners but, "It's like speak-
ing with the wall."
The three parties have also
declined to speak with the
press. "Private beach" signs
stand on the beach in front
of their homes.
"They're all worried that
busloads of people from De-
Funiak Springs are going to
be brought in -to use 'their'
beach," said Roxann Frey.
"They're concerned about
their rights as beachfront
property owners, but they're
ignoring our property rights,"
Frank Frey said.
He explained that in July
2005 the impacts of Hurri-
cane Dennis put stormwater
under his home and those of
some of his neighbors. He is
very concerned about the low
spot that will result if the
beach area near his home is
skipped in the restoration.
"Without the beach nour-
ishment, water will be
funnelling through our prop-
erties," he commented.
On April 14, attorney
Hallman said that parties
representing the contractor
have agreed to meet with the
county to discuss issues and
share strategies for resolving
the situation. He expressed
confidence that that coopera-
tion would result in the con-
tractor completing the
project as directed by the
BCC.

L


I'm attempting to
make a chicken salad, *
and it calls for a
poached chicken
breast (cooled and
cubed). I've looked in all my
books, and it doesn't tell me how .
to "poach" something. Christy
Smith, Beaverton, Ore.
Poaching is best
defined as cooking in
water over Low heat,
slightly Lower than a *
simmer. You want small
bubbles to appear around the out-
side of the pan, but they shouldn't *
be breaking violently. Poach foods
fish, chicken, fruit or out-of-
shell eggs you wouldn't want to *
boil: The rapid heat of boiling
would tause them to toughen up
and become unpleasant to eat.
Foods can be poached in any-
thing from water to broth to wine 0
to butter (this is both decadent *
and wonderful). One of the major
rewards of poaching is the gently a
flavored broth that results from 0
Longer poaches; once the food is
removed, the broth can either be .
reduced and used for sauces or
used as-is as a base for soup.
When poaching food like chicken .
for chicken salad, allow the chicken *
breast to cool in the poaching liq-
uid, then shred it (instead of cub- .
ing it) for optimum texture.
How do I store scal-
Lions so they don't 0
wilt before I can use 0
them? Kelley
Tobey, Knoxville,
Tenn. 0
Scallions are pretty
perishable on the
whole; they're best
used within 3 to 5
days. Get a head start; buy the *
freshest scallions you can find,
with crisp, green ends, clean-look-
ing white roots and no traces of *
sliminess on the outside. 5
A tip: The slimmer the bottom of *
the scallion, the sweeter the taste. *
To prolong their Life in the *
fridge, store them in a tightly
closed plastic bag, or upright, *
immersing the roots in a glass of
water and placing a plastic bag .
over the top. That should keep
them crisp for up to a week.
What's the difference .
between dry measure *
and liquid measure?
Is a cup the same .
either way? My wife
says no; I don't agree. .
- Rick Martin, Jacksonville, Ala. .
You're right a cup is
the same either way.
The difference between .
dry measure and wet
measure comes down
to how ingredients get measured. 0
When you use a dry measuring
cup, spooning the ingredient into
the cup then leveling off, you've *
got a more precise cup than the cup
you get by spooning into a wet
measure and then eyeballing. If you *
can't level off, you're never quite
sure if you've got exactly the right *
amount.
While you can use dry measuring
cups for wet ingredients, the
potential for spilling is greater than
if you were using a measuring cup
with a pouring spout. Dry measures
are more accurate than wet mea- *
surles; wet measures are easier to
use for liquid ingredients.
The easiest way to be sure is to
go the route of professional bakers
and weigh all your ingredients. But
recipes for the home cook rarely *
provide the necessary weights, so, *
after all is said and done, you're *
probably better off using both
types of measuring cups.

A new law requires labels to list risks from allergy-causing ingredients


By Kurt Loft
MEDIA GENERAL NEWS SERVICE
You may never get over that allergic
reaction to peanuts, but at least you've
been warned about eating them.
That's the point of a new federal law.
Foods containing allergy-triggering
ingredients now must carry simple, no-
nonsense labels describing potential
risks to consumers.
Millions in the United States suffer
from food allergies, experts say, so the
Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer
Protection Act offers a bit more security.
The act mandated the labels in summer
2004, giving food companies 18 months
to prepare.
The action is a boost to public food
safety, says Dennis Ledford, professor of
medicine at the University of South
Florida College of Medicine.
"It's making people more aware of
what's in'their food," he says.
"Food allergies are becoming a more


prevalent problem today. It's so,people
can evaluate the products they're buying,
because labels often are confusing."
Most people with moderate-to-severe
allergies react to four main foods:
peanuts, tree nuts, fish and shellfish.
Four other,irritant foods included in the
law are milk, eggs, soybeans and wheat.
These eight groups make up 90 per-
cent of all food allergies, according to
the Food and Drug Administration.
The law also requires manufacturers
to list ingredients that contain protein
derived from any of the culprit foods.
Experts say the labeling will be espe-
cially helpful to children who need to
recognize ingredients to avoid. If a
product contains the milk-derived pro-
tein casein, for example, the label must
use the term "milk" in addition to the
term "casein."
A century ago, most Americans ate
foods grown in their communities.
Today, foods are processed all over the


world and include a plethora of ingredi-
ents and preservatives.
As a result, negative reactions are
more common, says Robert A. Wood,
director of the pediatric allergic clinic at
Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions in
Baltimore. Every year, about 30,000
Americans require hospital treatment
because of a food allergy, the FDA says.
Out of those, 150 die.
Because there is no cure for these
allergies, experts say avoiding specific
foods is the only solution. Proper label-
ing is paramount.
"We need to make it clear [with
labels] so people aren't apprehensive
about what they eat," Ledford says. "It's
difficult to live with a food sensitivity if
you aren't confident about the food. So
the more we give people the facts, the
better people can make things work."

Kurt Loft is a staff writer for The

A food allergy is an abnormal
response to a food, triggered by the
immune system. Reactions can range
from a mild rash to severe swelling in
the throat and the airways to the
lungs, says Robert A. Wood of Johns
Hopkins Medical Institutions.
According to the FDA, reactions to
the eight main foods may include:

0 Tingling sensation in the mouth
0 Swelling of the tongue and throat
0 Difficulty breathing
0 Hives
0 Vomiting
0 Abdominal cramps
N Diarrhea
N A drop in blood pressure
0 Loss of consciousness
* In rare cases, death


Check Web sites, books when searching for new food ideas


Dear Lynne: How do you become a "foodie"?
In my new job, everybody talks
about food. I know nothing. I
think I'd like to try cooking
and eating new foods, too.
How do I start? Foodie
Wannabe
Dear Wannabe: You realize
you are talking to someone
obsessed with the subject.
SFollow half of this advice, and
you will be home free.
Do what your cohorts are
doing tune in to the Food
Network and browse its Web site
(www.foodnetwork.com). And
check out sites like egullet.com;
splendidtable.org; chowhound.com, which talks about
restaurants; and slow food.com, for a political point
of view on the world food scene.


I


Check local restaurant reviews in your magazines
and papers. Look for opinion and
orneriness; they will Lead you
down new paths.
Eat what you haven't eaten
before. Ask a co-worker about a
Latest find, or an old favorite
(everyone likes to know that his
or her.opinion is respected).
Ethnic restaurants are pure
j. gold. You walk into new worlds,
usually eating well for little
money. Research a bit before
I going to spot the important
dishes, to understand the cul-
tural etiquette, and to impress
your friends no end.
Cooking comes out of all this. Some of my per-
sonal picks for good entry-Level cooking are Motto
Italiano by Food Network and restaurant chef Mario


Batali; anything by Seattle chef Tom Douglas; Joan
Nathan's The New American Cooking; Madjur Jaffrey's
books on Indian and East Asian cuisines; Nina
Simonds and Ken Hom's books on Chinese cooking;
Barbara Kafka's latest, Vegetable Love; and Rick
Bayless on Mexico.

Dear Lynne: Are you supposed to use garlic
that has sprouted? Contemplating the Sprout
Dear Contemplating: The sprout tastes hot and
sharp; some claim it upsets their stomachs. Discard
the clove if you are concerned. If not, discard the
sprout and use the clove knowing it will be punchier
than most garlic. Use the entire clove and sprout in
spicy recipes with Lots of ingredients. There, their
sting is a good thing.

Dear Lynne: I made a yogurt sauce for some
pan-cooked chicken, and heated it up over mod-
erate heat. It tasted great but looked kind of


separated or curdled. I used plain, whole
unsweetened yogurt. What did I do wrong? All
Curdled Up
Dear Curdled Up: You did nothing wrong; your
yogurt merely got too hot. Here is why it curdled:
Scientists classify yogurt as a protein thickener.
Proteins coagulate as they heat up, which thickens
sauces. In yogurt's case, its proteins are already
coagulated by their culturing process, so when
heated close to a boil, the yogurt curdles, separat-
ing its proteins and liquids.
For smooth sauce, add yogurt at the end of cook-
ing. In dishes where simmering it into the sauce is
essential, accept yogurt's quirks and don't worry.

Once a music style
that was heard in
the low-lit bars of
New Orleans, it is
now breaking
records and selling
out concert venues.
Smooth Jazz and
traditional jazz are
making a comeback
in the South and are
capturing a whole
new market.

For weeks, you have been
reading about the 2006
Seabreeze Smooth Jazz Fes-
tival taking place at Sea-
scape Resort in Miramar
Beach. After selling out of
tickets in 2005 and having to
move to the largest outdoor
venue on the Emerald Coast,
organizers are gearing up for
another sell-out crowd of
nearly 5,000 per d y"
This year's WSBZ Smooth
Jazz Festival takes place
April 21-23.
The line-up is as follows for
all three days of tih'vent:
April 21, Chan's Wie'Shop,
Destin
Chuck Loeb and the Makers
and Shakers
April 22, Seascape main
arena
*Joyce Cooling
*Russ Freeman and the
Rippingtons
*KEM
*Brian Culbertson
*Eric Darius
*Bona Fide and Slim Man
April 23, Seascape Arena
*Jones & Company
*Euge Groove
*Rick Braun
*Wayman Tisdale
For the fourth year in a
row, Hilltop Productions will
provide the artists and ven-
dor market and management
for the concert that has
doubled in vendors, in loca-
tion and in performers, since
last year's event.
Tickets for certain concerts
are still on sale and can be
reserved by calling 267-
EASY.
If you are in the mood for a
more traditional style ofjazz
with the upbeat swing of
blues and rock and roll, then
New Orleans is where you'll
need to head. April 28-30 and
May 5-7 weekends will have
an array of musicians, top

recording artists and per-
formers from all over the na-
tion.
More than 200 acts will'fill
several stages throughout
the New Orleans Fair-
grounds. From rock and roll
to rhythm and blues, it can
be found at the festival.
Performers for the two-
weekend event include acts
such as. Fats Domino, Bruce
Springsteen, Jimmy Buffett,
Yolanda Adams, Buckwheat
Zydeco, Bob Dylan, Little
Feat, Lionel. Ritchie, Keith
Urban, Herbie Hancock, Etta
James, Dave Matthews. and
many more. Throughout the
two-weekend event, numer-
ous local and regional coun-
try, rock, gospel, blues,
smooth jazz, contemporary
jazz, acid and mixed jazz,
blues, rock and roll and clas-
sical.
Of course, hundreds of arts
and crafts booths will be set-
up and any kind of food vend-
ing that one desires can be
found.
The event has taken some
by surprise that so many acts
were able to be assembled
since the devastation in New
Orleans, but all have agreed
that it was the best thing the
city could do to begin the re-
vitalization. Tickets are now
on sale and can be purchased
by calling (800) 488-5252 or
log on to www.nojazzfest.com
The last musical stop is one
that has captured the true
essence of the jazz genre, in
the most unlikely venue-
downtown Atlanta.
The Atlanta Jazz Festival
will take place Memorial Day
Weekend in Piedmont Park.
The style of music and the
variety of performers will
vary greatly, but all are what
is considered the true tradi-
tional jazz.
Traditional jazz acts and
performers such as Rene
Marie, the Benny Golson
Quartet, Carmen Lundy, the
McCoy Tyner Trio, Grady
Tate, Jeff Simpson, Donald
Byrd, Moncef Genoud and
others will take festival goers
back to the early ages of jazz
as it was developing in the
30s, 40s, and 50s in the clubs
and concert halls of New Or-
leans.
Tickets for the event are
now on sale and can be re-
served by calling (404) 577-
8686, or by log on to
www.atlantafestivals.com.

NEWS F Ro THE CAPITOL


S (AP) -- The House is set to vote this week on a bill that
would continue a public records exemption for autopsy pho-
;to the tos that was put in law after the death of race car driver Dale
Actand Earnhardt.
atonres Like other exemptions from the public records law, the
Haynes measure (HB 7115) must be re-enacted every five years or it
s must automatically is repealed. It is sponsored by Rep. David
advance Rivera, R-Miami.
ow the Rep. Jack Seiler, D-Pompano Beach, questioned Tuesday
tested whether the measure might be too broad, and whether it
would prevent information about the autopsy of Martin Lee
#990E Anderson from becoming public.
Anderson was in a juvenile boot camp in Panama City when
he was kicked and punched by guards. He died the next day,
and his death remains under investigation. There have been
two autopsies of his body and Seiler asked whether informa-
tion from those might be unavailable to the public under the
districtt bill.
filled
or new Rivera responded that the bill allows autopsy photos or
videos to be released with a judge's approval. The measure is
plying opposed by the Florida First Amendment Foundation.
ct: Gail The exemption was put into law in 2001 as newspapers
0)892- sought access to photos from Earnhardt's autopsy as ques-
tions arose over how he died in a crash and whether better
g appli- safety equipment might have saved him.

Racing against the approaching hurricane season, the
House passed a bill Tuesday to give Floridians a 12-day break
from the sales tax on many storm preparedness items, in-
cluding batteries and generators and window shutters up to
PN) a certain dollar value.
#991E The bill (HB 47) is expected to be taken up possibly as
early as Wednesday by the Senate with hopes of getting it to
Gov. Jeb Bush in time for stores to start stocking up for the
increase in hurricane preparedness sales the bill is meant to
encourage.
The measure's sponsor, Rep. Ron Greenstein, D-Coconut
Creek, said he hoped Bush would sign the bill by the end of
|e this week, signaling retailers that they can expect additional
shoppers during the 12-day tax break, which would run from
May 21 to June 1, the first day of hurricane season.
The bill is aimed at encouraging people to buy items such
as flashlights, radios, and batteries. It also gives them an in-
centive to buy bigger hurricane preparedness items, such as
generators up to $1,000 and window protection, such as a
shutter or plywood, up to $200.
The measure would cost the state an estimated $34 mil-
lion in tax revenue and cost local governments an additional
$7 million. The bill passed the House 117-1.

A measure to require generators at some gas stations
rd cleared a Senate committee Tuesday, advancing the effort to
fix what many thought was one of the biggest problems ex-
posed by the hurricanes of the last couple years.
Floridians had trouble finding gas after several recent
storms, and when they did, they often had to wait in long
S lines. Many stations had gasoline in the ground, but with
power out had no way to pump it.
The Senate's ,solution (SB 528), sponsored by Sen. Steve
Geller, D-Hallandale Beach, is to require gas station owners
with lots of stations more than 10 in a county to have at
least one generator that could be used at one of those sta-
tions. Other stations, such as those within a half mile of evacu-
ation routes, and newly built stations, would have to have
r generator-ready wiring; but wouldn't need a generator on site.
Certain large stations would also have to upgrade their wir-
ing to make them able to easily switch to generator power
after a storm.


dren. After completion of
Phases II and III, 84 foster
children will have a safe, se-
cure home in a nurturing
environment.

Ken Hair, CIC executive di-
rector said, "This project
wouldn't be possible without
the tremendous support from
our community partners.
The architects and designers
for the Children's Neighbor-
hood include: Jeff Prescott,
Prescott Architects; Mark
Siner, Choctaw Engineering;
Larry More, LBM Design
and Don David, Kendrick-
David-Dowling Architects.
The site preparation is a do-
nation from Chuck Roberts,
C. W. Roberts Contracting."

"We still, need to raise
about $1 million for Phase I,
but thanks to all of our great
business and community
support I know we'll be suc-
cessful. Naming opportuni-


ties are still available includ-
ing group homes, rooms, fur-
nishings and the Children's
Neighborhood naming for a
$1 million donation."
Pat Franklin, Department
of Children and Families
commented, "We desperately
need an emergency shelter
and more foster homes in our
community. When children
are removed from an unsafe
or unstable environment in
the middle, of the night, at
times the children are
brought back to the DCF of-
fices where they remain un-
til a bed can be located. We
could use: this facility today
and I'm very pleased the com-
munity is so supportive to
this vitally important
project."
CIC still needs help to
fund housing for the abused
and neglected children of the
community. Call Ken Hair,
the executive director, at 651-
1537.


Sen. Alex Villalobos, R-Miami, asked.why more stations -
perhaps all shouldn't be required'to h~oe generators.
"I don't believe it's realistic both'fianpower-wise and fi-
nancial-wise to have a generator, t' every stdtii on" said Jin-
Smith,'president of the Florida Petroleum Nlarketers'and
Convenience Store Association, whichtepresents'smaller sta-
tion owners.
The bill was approved by the Senate Community Affairs
Committee on a 6-1 vote and now goes to the Ways and Means
Committee.
The House is considering a plan to require owners of sta-
tions with sales above a certain amount to purchase and in-
stall generators, but would give them a tax credit to help them
with the cost. That plans is also still in 'the committee pro-
cess.

Some highways that run alongside canals or other bodies
of water in Miami-Dade County would have to have guard-
rails, barrier cables or some other barrier between the road
and the water under a measure approved Tuesday by the
Senate Transportation Committee.
Florida has seen several injuries and a few deaths in re-
cent years from people driving into canals and drowning. "This
doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that we could certainly
prevent a lot of fatalities if we have the guardrails up," said
Sen. Larcenia Bullard, D-Miami, the sponsor of the bill (SB
1022).
Initially backers sought to require guardrails to protect
people from nearby water on all Florida roads, but the mea-
sure was amended Tuesday to try it first in a Miami-Dade
County pilot program. The bill now goes to the Senate Com-
munity Affairs Committee.

(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 American 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) administra-
tion," said Dalack, who served in the Army in Korea 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 coun-
cil.
"I think everyone was stunned that he would run for office
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."
