Blossoming development


holds no bloom for farmers


By Leigh Strickland
Growth is occurring in
many parts of Walton
County. New commercial and
residential developments are
plentiful and widespread.
Not exempt from this growth
is the small community of
Mossy Head in the western
part of the county.
Several factors are con-
tributing to the rise in devel-
opment in Mossy Head. Sur-
rounding cities that have ex-
perienced major growth in
the past are now filling up.
Many feel that Crestview,
Niceville, and Fort Walton
Beach have become too
crowded and too expensive.
For these people, Mossy
Head may offer a solution.
According to County Com-
missioner Larry Jones,
Crestview has few places to
continue to build and support
further growth.
Pat Blackshear, director of
Planning and Development
for Walton County, said,
"We're going to have that
movement from Okaloosa
over. The congestion on Hwy.
85 in Crestview will push
people farther east because
Hwy. 285 is not congested at
this time."
Jones also cited traffic as
a contributing factor.
A person can spend an
hour in traffic traveling from
one side of Crestview to the
other, he said. He then con-
trasted this with Hwy. 285,
saying that this road, which
connects Mossy Head to
Niceville and other cities,
runs through land owned by
Eglin Air Force Base and
thus won't experience devel-
opment and the resulting
congestion.
Mentioning another draw
to the area, Blackshear said,
"Walton County is blessed in
that we have rail and we
have a lot of land along the
railway and right by the in-
terstate. We will have more
industrial businesses move
in and that will bring jobs."
For companies looking for
sites near the base with ac-
cess to the interstate and
railway, Mossy Head is ideal,
she said.
The base realignment and
closure program (BRAC) that
will bring people into Eglin
Air Force Base is also ex-
pected to affect Mossy Head.
The Eglin realignment,
Jones said, will have a tre-
mendous impact on Mossy
Head as anywhere from
3,000 to 15,000 people may
come into Eglin.
These people will need
places to live. Because other
cities are full, he said, outly-
ing areas like Mossy Head
will receive a share of the
growth.
Blackshear said that


BRAC will make Mossy
Head like a bedroom commu-
nity as people move in for
affordable housing. She ex-
pects this to have the biggest
impact on growth in the near
future.
Two major developments
are planned for Mossy Head.
One, called Blackstone Es-
tates, is a 1,300 acre area,
north of Hwy. 90 and west of
the intersection of Hwy. 90
'and Hwy. 285.
Plans allow for 3,300 resi-.
dential units and 177,500
square feet of commercial
property.
Developers have received
apEipvail at present, oiily f6r
a golf course, while the rest
of the plans are going
through the review process.
About the commercial
part of this development,
Jones said that ideally it will
be things that will support
the community it plans to es-
tablish, such as: grocery
stores, banks, and doctors'
offices.
Also planned for Mossy
Head is an industrial park.
It is to be on 260 acres located
between the interstate and
Hwy. 90, to the west.of Hwy.
285.
Jones said that there are
a .number of businesses and
industries interested in lo-
cating there. He hopes that
the project can stay ahead of
the issues and challenges as-
sociated with growth, mak-
ing something the commu-
nity can be proud of.
Progress on this, though,
has been slower than origi-
nally hoped.
Jones said that a lot of
people are involved and have
a say in how things go.
He said, "We would have
liked to have said this time a
year ago that we're ready to
move forward. We were na-
ive to think that everything
was going to fall into place."
According to Jones, steps
are being made in the
progress of this development.
Issues about entrance to and
exit from the property are
being resolved with the
Florida Department of


AMONG THE FIRST to

departments like this one

ter. This familiar sight, right,
may change as the company
considers a larger tank.

Walton County.


Transportation. Preliminary
plans have been sent and
feedback is expected soon.
All of this growth that is
expected to bring in both
people and businesses will
have a large impact on the
community of Mossy Head.
Tom Terrell, president of
Mossy Head Water Works,
said that with all of the new
development going in, more
water will have to be put out.
A needs and feasibility
study is currently being
worked on.
At the minimum, he said,
another high-rise tank will
need to be put in, but they
won't know until the study
is-completed how best to
move forward and deal with
the growth.
The Blackstone develop-


ment alone is projected to
need 2.9 million gallons of
water per day, almost two
million more per day than
current capacity. This devel-
opment, Terrell said, will be
a challenge for the water
works. .
Other developments
aren't anticipated to present
a problem.
However, according to
Terrell, growth is already oc-
curring. Currently 1,300 cus-
tomers are served, an in-
crease of about 400 in the last
three years.
A sewage treatment plant
is being discussed, which
would also involve the water
works and affect it greatly,
said Terrell.

Council considers


fire assessments


and abandonments


By Leigh Strickland
The DeFuniak Springs
City Council met Monday
night.
One of the first things on
the agenda was the swearing
in of newly reelected council
members, James Coffield,
Don Harrison, and James
Huffman.
SCouncilman Huffman was
again appointed as Mayor
Pro-Tempore and meetings
will continue to be held on
the second and fourth Mon-
day of every month at 7 p.m.
Fire cost recovery was
again discussed. Nothing
was said about whether or
not fees would be charged for
fire response or the fairness
of this, but instead methods
for doing cost recovery were
outlined.
Camille Tharpe of Govern-
ment Services, Inc. in Talla-
hassee described five options
for recovering costs associ-
ated with fire response.
Collecting a fee along with
taxes is good, she said, but
excuses some people because
they don't pay taxes. Still,
this method, she said, has a
96 percent collection rate and
.is done early in the year, so
money is available sooner
than other methods might
allow.
Other ways mentioned
were special assessments,


user fees, grants, and impact
fees.
Tharpe said she would
like to do a power-point pre-
sentation for the council to
show the pros and cons of
each way of collecting the
fees.
City Manager Kim'
Presnell said that it would be:
wise to look at a good mix of
ways and suggested a work-
shop setting to consider these
in the future.
City Attorney Clayton'
Adkinson will proceed with
the process of abandoning an,
alley off of Fourth Street as
the council approved this in
a 3-1 vote.
All adjacent property own-
ers were notified by letter.
that this would be consid-
ered, and none were present
to object.
Property owner, Deborah
Weaver, along with her hus-:
band, requested that the al-'
ley be abandoned. She ex-
pressed concerns for the
safety of her family, saying
that she doesn't know her
neighbors and that a con-
tinuous trail of people go by
her house at night.
"Something must be
done," she said.
Councilman Don Harrison

Relay for Life of DeFuniak
Springs has announced a
family-friendly, fun-filled Fri-
day night, April 28, to ben-
efit the American Cancer So-
:ciety (ACS All events take
place at the Walton High
SSchool Stadium. Admission
is free, but donations, are, of
course, encouraged.
The West DeFuniak El-
ementary Bee Bops entertain
during set-up. The official
opening ceremony is at 6 p.m.
with a presentation of colors,
featuring Rhonda Skipper
singing the national anthem.
Ceremonial laps by survi-
vors, star supporters and the
various fund-raising teams'
with banners then ensue.
The Southwide Puppets
entertain during the 6:30
survivors' reception, which is
followed by .open touring of
the many team campsites. A
wide variety of goodies, from
the substantial to the merely
delectable, will be available
for purchase at these camp-
sites. Proceeds from these
sales go to support the ACS.
The gospel singing groups
4-Ever His and Southern Tra-
dition provide the entertain-
ment for this phase of the
Relay, during which teams
vie for honors for best food
offerings and best campsites.

At 9 p.m. the luminaria cer-
emony begins. Many consider
this the highlight of the
evening. Candles are lit in-
side paper bags on which are
written names memorializ-
ing those who have lost their
battle with cancer, and hon-
oring the courage of those
who are winning.


SThe "Mz. Relay" competi-
tion starts at 9:30. This is
essentially a beauty contest
of grown men silly enough to
dress up as women. T'is a
crowd favorite, enjoyed by
the young and the young-at-
heart. The "Mz. Relay" is
followed by the fast-paced
Hot Wheels race. .Note: bet-
ting on the side is discour-
aged. Contribute to the ACS
instead)
Throughout the evening, a
"Smoke House" demonstra-
tion will be maintained by
the Emergency Operations
Center to entertain and edu-
cate the young about fire
safety.
Starting at 11:30 and con-
tinuing through the wee
hours are a series of wacky
activities designed to help
the team keep enough mem-
bers awake to fulfill their
pledge ofkeeping someone on
the track all night long. Some
of the named events will give
their flavor; "Kamikaze
Karaoke", "Chubby Bunny,"
"Rattle Trap Relay", and
"Talented Tootsies."
In the early morning,
Curves will lead wake-up
aerobics, followed by a best
pajama contest and the 7
a.m. sunrise service. At 9
a.m., a K-9 demonstration
will be given by local law en-
forcement. At 10:30, the
drawing will be held to pick
the winners for the various
raffles conducted by the
fund-raising teams. The Re-
lay closes at noon, as winning
teams and participants are
named, along with the final
financial tally.
The community is encour-
aged to attend.


Walton students score above average


By Ron Kelley
Walton School District re-
sults for recent FCAT Writ-
ing Performance tests show
that Walton school students
scored above average in all
but two categories, where
they matched the state aver-
age. According to statistics
provided by the state, the
students completed essays
and were judged on how well
they met the three require-
ments regarding the effec-
tiveness of the writing as-
signments.
Walton fourth-graders
achieved one percentage


point higher on their profi-
ciency rating than the state
average. Walton eighth-grad-
ers scored a full seven per-
centage points higher than
the state average and the
tenth-graders scored just
above average.

Proficiency is me lured by
the percentage oi udents
scoring 3.5 and above on the
essay portion of the assess-
ment. As you can see, our
.performance exceeded state
performance at all grade lev-
els (combined scores).
Eighth-grade students dem-


onstrated the most signifi-
cant performance, exceeding
the state's proficiency aver-
age by seven percent.
Superintendent Carlene
Anderson said she was "ex-
tremely pleased with our stu-
dents' performance. The
scores reflect the hard work
of our students, teachers, and
administrators. "

The FCAT Writing+ as-
sessment program continues
to change every year and it's
expected that there will be
increases in proficiency for
the 2006-2007 school year.

A DeFuniak Springs
woman was killed when she
lost control of her truck on the
afternoon ofApril 20. The ac-
cident occurred on Coy Bur-
gess Loop Road, near Chess
Spence Road.
Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) investigator Cpl. K.D.
Davis reported that a truck
was traveling north on Coy
Burgess Loop Road. The
driver and sole occupant was
Terri Ann Bucci, 43, of 11078
Hwy. 90, DeFuniak Springs.


Bucci apparently drove off
of the roadway onto the east
shoulder, then drove back
onto the roadway, overcor-
recting in the process.
The truck rotated clock-
wise, drove back onto the
shoulder, and overturned.
Bucci was ejected, and fatally
injured.

According to the report, it
is unknown whether drugs: or
alcohol were involved. Bucci
was reportedly not wearing a
seatbelt.

EDITOR'S COMMENT



There ought to be a law


By RONKELLEY

Spring is out in full force. Ah, spring. That special time
when all the crazy people come back out from their winter
hibernation. You've seen them out there headed to Panama
City for spring break!
That puts me in mind of other crazy things that never
seem to go away. I'm talking about laws.
Like a bad entitlement program, once a law or ordinance
gets onto the books, it's easier to wash the stripes off a ze-
bra than it is to get rid of that law no matter how crazy.
Here are a few of my favorite examples of laws that are
still in effect in Florida, Georgia and Alabama.
IN PENSACOLA, FLORIDA, citizens may not be caught
downtown without at least $10 on their person. (Keeps the
riff-raff in the suburbs.)
A special law prohibits unmarried women from parachut-
ing on Sunday. They face arrest, fine, and/or jailing. (It's
okay for her to jump out of a perfectly good airplane any
other time, though.)
In Florida, men may not be seen publicly in any kind of
strapless gown. (Well, that's a relief!)
Having sexual relations with a porcupine is illegal. (And
this happened often enough that we need a law for it?)
In Florida, it is illegal to fish while driving across a bridge.
(People who try this usually begin by saying, "Here, hold
my beer...")
In Key West, chickens are considered a 'protected spe-
cies'. (I have no comment!)
IN ANNISTON, ALABAMA, you cannot wear blue jeans
down Noble Street.

Editor,
Pray tell, how long does it take to train Iraqi troops? How
many does the 'Coalition' train at once? A squad, maybe a
platoon? Even in small groups such as squads and platoons
it seems as though enough time has elapsed to train a size-
able army. The news media has been saying for months now
that the'Coalition'is making progress, so they are told 'Well,
the 'progress' must be at a shai;l's pace. I don't remember
being trained at so leisurely a pace. Something must be
wrong with the recruiting, the training, the support or all
of them. "
It has also been said that when the ,Iraqi armed forces
become strong enough, the U.S. will withdraw. That may be
awhile.
There is much wrong with the government of the U.S.
One of the most obvious is thatpresidents have run the
show, decided what will and will not be done, for years no
decades. Congress has become a congregation of'yes'.-men,
and that too has gone on for decades. The president has
usurped, or taken over the perogative of the Congress with
little opposition. This has gone on in both parties..
A large segment of the voters have no candidate that in-
terests them. When it comes down to the incumbent" and
the liberal senator from Massachusetts, you have a choice
between a rock and a hard place. There was no way I was
going to vote for the liberal senator, and I saw a lot wrong
with the incumbent, so my interest was nil. If ever we needed
a noble third party, it is now; a party that would have posi-
tions somewhere between the Republicans and Democrats
and one that gives much consideration to the Constitution.
Though the Constitution has been much abused and ignored
in its long history, that is no reason to keep up that prac-
tice.

An ordinance in Linden provided that all women of "un-
certain chastity" had to be off the streets by 9 p.m. (What if
they were certain?)
Dominoes may not be played on Sunday.
It is illegal for a driver to be blindfolded while operating
a vehicle. (Well, you've got me there.)
It is illegal to wear a fake moustache that causes laugh-
ter in church. (But toupees are still legal!)
It is legal to drive the wrong way on a one-way street if
you have a lantern on the front of your car. (This explains a
lot about Alabama drivers.)
Putting salt on a railroad track maybe punishable by
death. (I don't know why, either.)
You cannot chain your alligator to a fire hydrant. (It scares
the bejeezers out of the dog.)
A LAW IN COLUMBUS, GEORGIA, makes it illegal to
sit on your porch in an indecent position. (Either sit there
decently or go inside.)
A Kennesaw law makes it illegal for any homeowner not
to own a gun, unless you are a convicted felon, conscien-
tious objector, or disabled. (The spiritual home of the NRA)
In Atlanta, it's against the law to tie a giraffe to a tele-
phone pole or street lamp (not to be outdone by Alabama
alligators), and donkeys may not be kept in bathtubs. (In
the hallway, okay.)
In Gainesville, chicken must be eaten with the hands.
(Yes, but chickens don't have hands... ba-dum, ba-dum.)
It is illegal in Georgia to use profanity in the presence of
a corpse. (Unless they suddenly sit up.)
And finally, in Quitman, Georgia, it is illegal for a chicken
to cross the road. (So no more joking around! Okay, buddy?)

Editor,
Mr. Bush wants to be friendly with Red China, but did
you know that China gave weapons to North Korea and
North Vietnam, to be used to kill American soldiers during
the Korean and Vietnam wars?
This is an insult to myself, a Vietnam veteran, who spent
three years over in that country, and the veterans who were
..in' Korea. How can Mr. Bush trust Red China after being
our enemy in two wars?
The only thing I can say is, I'd rather be dead than be
'red'.

Editor:
Recently a public workshop and panel of senior center di-
rectors from Tallahassee, Pensacola, and Fort Walton Beach
were assembled in 'DeFuniak Springs to present informa-
tion, and provide answers related to the proposed "Life En-
richment Center" in Walton County. The sign-in sheet lists
50 signatures of participants.
Subsequent to the workshop, the College Avenue Com-
plex Committee moved forward in a public meeting to re-
quest the county and city staff begin developing details for
the collaborative operation of the proposed Life Enrichment
Center. The committee recommends that the center be lo-
cated at the existing county government complex on Col-
lege Avenue.
In addition, the committee requested preliminary plans
and cost figures. Three options are to be explored: (1) reno-
vation of the current building, (2) renovation and addition
of 2,000 square feet to the building, (3) construction of a
separate 4,000 square-foot building. The plans and figures
will be provided by the county engineering department
within 60 to 90 days.
There has been considerable public interest and support
expressed verbally to the committee, and through a com-
munity survey. The 132 survey responses have provided hard -
information that is parallel to observations and comments
expressed in the public meetings. Additional survey forms
can be submitted by clicking "citizen information and ser-
vices" at www.co.walton.fl.us then select the "senior cen-
ter survey", or visit the Citizens Services office on College
Ave., or the library on Circle Drive to pick up a survey form.
Current survey response: 70 percent, female, 25 percent,
male. Age group: 50 to 54 17 percent, 55 to 59 11 per-
cent, 60 to 64 10 percent, 65 to 69 15 percent, 70 to74 17
percent, 75 to 79 18 percent, 80 + 13 percent. Interest-
ingly, 28 percent of the responders were under age 60. The
baby boomers have arrived! To the question of the accept-
ability of membership dues for the center the response was:
86 percent, yes, 5 percent, no. Some did not respond.
Responders were able to select multiple interests in rec-
reation and adventure, health and wellness, educational
classes, art classes, and special events. For recreation, travel
was at the top of the list followed by board games, bridge,
and dancing. Exercise, walking, health screenings, and a
water pool headed the list under health and wellness. For
educational classes: computer, driving, history, current
events, genealogy, and reading came out on top.
Arts and Crafts were well represented in the survey with
sixty percent of the responders listing arts and crafts, quilt-
ing, and ceramics as their top choice for activities. For spe-
cial events, 82 percent, wish to participate in food events
that promote socializing, and support the center through
yard sales and fundraisers. True to a well-established vol-
Sunteer spirit that prevails throughout the community, 43
percent, signed up to support the center with their time and
talent as volunteers.
An additional workshop will be planned soon to develop
specific initial activity recommendations for the county en-
gineer to consider as floor plans, construction details, and
cost factors are pulled together.

Editor,
What has happened to our society? Have times and people's
manners changed so much that we can't take the time to
stop and show some respect when we see a funeral proces-
sion? Are our lives and schedules so hectic that we forget
simple road etiquette?
Recently, my family and I were part of a funeral proces-
sion that started from DeFuniak Springs and traveled south
on Hwy. 331 to the Black Creek community. During this
time, we encountered many cars that did not seem to know
what it means when they see a line of cars with their head-
lights on, a hearse, and a police escort.
Many of these drivers kept their normal speed and did
not even attempt to pull over. The drivers, who did show
their respect and pulled over, were passed by those who did
not seem to care. One driver even honked her horn at my
husband and me when we were trying to cross a tiny inter-
section near the cemetery. I wonder if after she realized she
had interrupted a somber occasion, she was the least bit
remorseful.
Time have changed; but simple common courtesy has not.
It means a lot to the families and friends who are in the
procession when they see others take the time out of their
busy lives to stop and show some respect for someone they
don't even know. I know it meant a lot to me when I saw the
drivers who pulled over and waited for us to pass. It also
meant a lot when my family and I saw the officer who took
his hat off and placed it over his heart; and the other officer
who stood very somber with his head bowed.
These are acts of reverence and respect. These are things
that make a lasting impression on people. After all, we do'
live in the 'South where traditions are a pat of every-day
life.
On behalf of my family, I would like to take this opportu-
nity to thank a the citizens who did kindly pull over, and
the Walton County Sheriff's deputies for doing such a won-
derful job at the intersections, and for also being so rever-
ent.

Editor,
In the Ft. Walton Daily News last week DeFuniak Springs
was highlighted.
A Walgreen is being built.
A 16,000 ft. strip mall is being built south of Wal-Mart.
A Whataburger at Hardie's old location.
Also, 200 homes behind Walton High School, 138 town
homes off US 90, west of the airport, and 90 town homes on
Shoemaker, behind Ed's Restaurant, 60 homes will go on
Walton Road, plus a 300-home subdivision north of the high
school, and a 300-acre development at Picket's Crossing.
This is well and good only if the city, county and state
government will install the infrastructure first. Traffic lights,
sewer, water, roads, etc. to take care of the influx of people.
Presently we desperately need traffic lights at Shoemaker
and Hwy. 90, 20th St. and Hwy. 90, and 331 at Bruce Av-
enue.

Ernest L. (Sonny) Hollingsworth
DeFuniak Springs,


Dear Editor,

Our Republican led state government, headed by Jeb
Bush, continues their effort to improve the education of
Florida's children. They are doing this by: cutting taxes for
the richest (eliminating the State Intangibles Tax), bypass-
ing the Florida Supreme Court ruling that the Bush voucher
program is illegal, and increasing the negative impact of
FCAT on our public schools while assuring that FCAT will
not be used in private schools.
Elimination of the state intangibles tax is just a part of
the on-going effort to remove taxes from the very wealthy,
in this case owners of over $370,000 of stocks and bonds.
Decreased.taxes make it increasingly difficult to fund edu-
cation. Under this administration, Florida school teacher's
average salary has dropped to 48th in the nation and yet
we are one of the richest states. This fact casts a serious
shadow on the improvement of Walton County teacher's sala-
ries from 55th to 33rd in the state, made possible by the .5
mil tax referendum passed three years ago.
The Jeb Bush plan to thwart our Supreme Court's ruling
that his school voucher program is illegal is to change the
way our government finances it. He plans to finance it with
"private corporate donations," yet these donations would be
eligible for a tax credit; therefore, the corporation would get
10 percent of their donation back from the state. Hopefully,
indirect funding is just as illegal as direct funding.
This administration is now planning to pay teacher bo-
nuses based on FCAT scores of their students, yet FCAT is
purposely not even required for private or "voucher" schools.
While private schools may be some of the best in our state,
the fact is that if they receive taxpayer dollars, they should
follow the same rules as public schools. If the rules are bad,
then change the rules.
I believe the single most important contributor to a good
education, other than parenting, is a good teacher. Yet
teacher pay in our state remains at the bottom. A teacher in
Walton County cannot afford to live in Walton County solely
on their teacher salary. This disgrace appears to receive little
or no attention from our state government. Is a constitu-
tional amendment referendum the only way to improve
teacher salaries in our state?

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 27, 2006


Plaintiffs dismiss Hutchins v. First Baptist Church


By BRUCE COLLIER
Plaintiffs in the case of
Hutchins, et al., v. First Bap-
tist Church of DeFuniak
Springs have filed a volun-
tary motion to dismiss.
This brings to an end their
attempts to seek restoration,
reparation, or restitution for
the church's demolition of a
dwelling to make room for an
expanded parking lot on
church property.


The motion is styled as
"without prejudice," meaning
that, at least in theory, an
action can be brought again.

However, the action just
dismissed was itself an
amended complaint, one that
would, at best, have resulted
in money damages.
"The notion of monetary
gain is contrary to the funda-
mental belief, spirit, and in-


tent of the Plaintiffs who par-
ticipated in this cause of ac-
tion," states the motion to dis-
miss.

The action originally in-
volved ten plaintiffs. Various
dismissals and voluntary
withdrawals had whittled
that number down to a single
plaintiff. That plaintiff faced
the task of showing specific
damages to his property.


The action arose out of a
controversial structure lo-
cated where the church in-
tended to expand its parking
lot.

A group of area property
owners expressed concern
over the proposed demolition
of an historically significant
house, which was already in
an advanced state of disre-
pair.


Despite attempts to seek
an injunction against demo-
lition, the structure was torn
down.
The motion to dismiss con-
cludes with the plaintiffs'
statement that "the goal of


continued preservation, res-
toration and revitalization of
the historic district can best
be accomplished by investing
their time and resources in
projects specifically dedicated
to historic preservation."

A toast to the

newest Walton

County community

organization


By RONKELLEY
Walton County has a new
club whose aim is to help
people learn how to speak
effectively in public. The
Lake DeFuniak Toastmas-
ters received their charter
from the national organiza-
tion at a luncheon meeting
Thursday, April 13.
The club consists of area
professionals from a variety
of businesses and organiza-
tions that want to improve
their speaking technique and
sharpen their skills so that
they can speak confidently in
front of large groups of
people.
The participants are


graded by the club on their
speeches and members are
also tasked with being able
to stand and speak on a sur-
prise subject, without prepa-
ration or forewarning.
All speakers, even those
not scheduled to speak, are
monitored for conversational
speech faux pas.
During the meeting, there
was a plethora of "ahs" and
"uhs" and other red-flag ex-
pressions: A special word is
also chosen for each meeting
and members gain points for
using it properly in a sen-
tence.
The special word for that
day.was 'plethora,' meaning
an over-abundance.


LAKE DEFUNIAK TOASTMASTER PRESIDENT
Wanda Edwards accepts the club's charter from district rep-
resentative Bonnie Kempke.


Toastmasters President
Wanda Edwards received
their official organizational
charter from district repre-
sentative, Bonnie Kempke,
and both helped pass out cer-
tificates to the charter mem-
bers. Other board members


included David Gall, Nancy
Brown and Bill Vorwald.
The club is open to anyone
and meets the second Thurs-

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.

leaving behind the burden-
some, handwritten document
of the past."


Twelve school districts in
Florida will participate in the
state's initiative to imple-
ment a statewide Individual
Education Plan (IEP) for stu-
dents participating in Excep-
tional Student Education.
Walton County School Dis-
trict is among the twelve to
begin implementing the web
system in August of 2006.
Other districts interested
in the initial phase of the op-
eration are on a waiting list.
All districts in Florida are-ex-
pected to be in full implemen-
tation by 2008-09.

The state's decision to re-
quire all school districts to
follow a standardized format
is supported by recommenda-
tions of the 2005 Paper Re-
duction Task Force. The task
force recommended the
implementation of a state-
wide, pre-populated, online
IEP as a mechanism to re-
duce paperwork burdens and
increase instructional time
for teachers. The Florida De-
partment of Education
(FDOE) is contracting with
Ohio State University (OSU)
to produce the statewide
document and process.
FDOE Chancellor Cheri


Pierson Yecke,"Ohio State
has experience in develop-
ment and implementing
state, regional, and-national
projects of this scope. These
projects, based in OSU's Cen-
ter for Special Needs Popu-
lations, College ofEducation,
include all phases of data-
base design and systems
management, training of cli-
ents in software applications,
and technical assistance
through onsite consulting as
well as technology-based
communications."
The first meeting ofpartici-
pants from the selected
school districts was held
April 19, at the Tallahassee
Civic Center. Representing
Walton County at the meet-
ing were Rosemary Ragle
and Elizabeth Sheppard with
the school district's Depart-
ment of Exceptional Student
Education and Psychological
Services.
Districts are required to
identify a district coordinator
for the project, along with
testers, training facilitators,
users and user groups, train-
ing facilities, and an assess-
ment of the district's techni-
cal infrastructure and com-
patibilities.

Training of school staff is
expected to be completed be-
fore the beginning of the
school term, although train-
ing throughout the year will
continue.
Security and reliability are
major emphases of the
project, and the advantages
of a standard IEP format are
numerous. Once converted
to electronic form, the system
will allow automatic pre-
population of some portions
of the IEP from existing state
and local data systems, such
as student demographic in-
formation, and assessment
data.
"One of our goals this year
was to establish a computer-
ized IEP system in our dis-
trict," stated Ragle, Walton's
new administrator for Excep-
tional Student Education.
"We were negotiating with a
company, but the cost was
considerable. I knew that the
State had future plans for a
statewide IEP, so I postponed

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 27, 2006


Police arrest three


in construction


site theft


DeFuniak Springs Police
(DFSPD) have arrested three
suspects in connection with a
series of burglaries and thefts
on the What-a-Burger con-
struction site located on U.S.
331 in DeFuniak Springs.

The burglaries and thefts
are alleged to have occurred
between April 16 and 17, and
again on April 20.
In custody are Rebecca
Elizabeth Sykes, 21, of 2352
Coy Burgess Loop in DeFu-
niak Springs, Michael Loyd
Smith, 31, of the same ad-
dress, and Gerald Raymond
Honeycutt, 31, of the same
address.
The three allegedly broke
into construction trailers be-
longing to Sam's Electrical


COUNCIL

a police request. He was con-
cerned about addressing a
safety issue by abandoning an
alley that is being used by oth-
ers.
The others he spoke of,
people who travel to the prop-
erty behind Weaver's by means
of the alley, could also access the
property from Hwy. 90.
Adkinson said that just be-
cause there is no curb cut that
doesn't mean there is no access
to the property and that he
couldn't imagine the state De-
partment of Transportation de-
nying access.
Councilman James Coffield
agreed with Weaver, saying that
he would be concerned for his
family's safety too.


DEVELOPMENT
Commissioner Jones doesn't
feel that waste management
will be an issue and expects
plans for this to move forward
soon.
Mentioned, too, was storm
water management, whi6h
Jones said would be the respon-
'sibility of individual developers.
Another effect of Mossy
Head's growth is plans to build
a new elementary.school in the
area.
Walton County has donated
about 20 acres for the project,
Commissioner Jones said, and
design plans are in the works.
The site for the school is off
of Hwy. 90 near the EMS sta-
tion.
About the planning process
for the school, Blackshear said,
"Everybody is very interested in
us having high quality schools,
neighborhood schools."
They also must make sure
that there will be enough seat-
ing for all of the children who
will be living in the homes be-
ing added to the community, she
said.
School Board member
Donnie Richardson explained
that the core of the school will
be built for 800 students, but
initially, seats for only 500 will
be built. This will allow for fu-
ture expansion if it becomes nec-
essary due to further growth.
Other elementary schools in
DeFuniak Springs and Paxton
are full, he said, and the dis-
tance between Mossy Head and
these other schools requires
children to spend a lot of time
on school buses.
The location of the new
school would both accommodate
growth and make transporta-
tion easier.
Many people are glad for all
of the growth and development
in Mossy Head.
According to Tom Terrell, "It's
going to be good things for
Mossy Head." He said, "I antici-
pate it's going to bring jobs in
for our young people."
However, not everyone is
benefited by further growth in
the Mossy Head area.
Donnie Richardson makes
his living farming in Mossy
Head. He said, "Growth is bad
for farming."
Growth and development de-
stroy a person's ability to stay
in the farming business, he said,
because they drive the price of
land up. This makes it difficult
for farmers to buy or rent land
and still profit from their crops.
The costs associated with
growth put a tremendous
amount of people out of busi-
ness, he said. "The folks that
love growth are making money
with it. Our way of life is gone."
If growth continues, he said,
farming will eid.
Increased traffic due to de-
velopment also creates a prob-
lem. "Another problem we're
having is trying to get up and
down the roads with this equip-


Company and Horizon Gen-
eral Contractors, and stole a
total of $9,810 worth of tools
and electrical wire.
The suspects were at-
tempting to sell some copper
wire to Lyle's Auto Salvage on
Hwy 90. The insulating cover
of the wire had apparently
been melted off.
A search of the suspects'
home found a fire pit contain-
ing remnants of wire spools
and spool ties.
Approximately $1,384
worth of items belonging to
the victims was also found at
the suspects' home.
The three have been
charged with dealing in sto-
len property, grand theft from
a construction site, and bur-
glary of a structure.


FROM FRONT

Councilman Huffman re-
cused himself from voting and
the council voted to proceed with
the abandonment request.
Council Harrison was the only
member to vote against this.
Abandonment of sections of
21st Street and 22nd Street
were approved. This is in con-
nection with the Legacy Cove
development to be located on the
corner of Hwy. 90 and 20th
Street.
The developer of Legacy
Homes, Jack Burke, said that
they would not do anything to
negatively affect surrounding
property value.
Burke did not ask for aban-
donmentoof 23rd Street, but did
request permission to use it. He
promised to build the road to


I. : FROM FRONT
ment. The traffic has gotten so
bad. People don't respect the
farmers at all."
Though he is looking at equip-
ment that folds up and makes
getting down the road easier,
Richardson feels that it is impos-
sible for a young person to ever
take up farming ri the area: -
Regarding the future,
Richardson said,"I don't see any
farming at all."

A development agreement
had been prepared for the pro-
posed townhouse development
on Shoemaker Drive in DeFu-
niak Springs.
This issue was continued to
May 22 for its final hearing.
Collection of water and sewer
impact fees for new develop-
ments was also discussed and
alternatives were presented.
Presnell recommended that
the city continue to collect the
entire amount for these up front,
calling it "smart business."
Collecting impact fees at the
beginning of development, she
said, would provide the money
needed to prepare for growth.
Charles Peterson also sug-
gested collecting the fees up
front so as not to get behind.
The council unanimously ap-
-proved collecting water and
sewer impact fees up front.

Mayor Harold Carpenter
mentioned that the name cho-
sen for the center, Life Enrich-

Councilman Harrison was
concerned about the architecture

In other comments, Council-

Huffman is also concerned
about zoning. He feels that there

Director of Building and Plan-

Danny and the

Handbells at

Saint Agatha's


By BRUCE COLLIER
Saint Agatha's Episcopal
Church in DeFuniak Springs
had more bells than usual
last Sunday, April 23, as solo
handbell artist Danny Lyons
performed a concert program
to a nearly full house.
This latest offering in
Saint Agatha's Lakeside Con-
cert series featured one man
and an array of 37 bronze
handbells.
The handbells were laid
out in a pattern similar to
that of a piano keyboard. The
bells varied in size from small
to large.
Lyons played in a variety
of styles, holding bells singly,
in pairs, or in clutches of
three. He also struck the bells
with sticks, in the style of a
vibraphone. Lyons was ac-
companied by a recorded pi-
ario for several of his pieces.
The program included


thirteen pieces, running from
sacred to classical and mod-
ern, featuring the work of
Bach, Massenet, Beethoven,
Scott Joplin, Gershwin, and
Rodgers and Hammerstein.
Lyons was an entertaining
performer, and acted as his
own master of ceremonies, in-
troducing each piece, and of-
fering amusing bits of history
and trivia on handbells.
The instruments were
originally employed by
church bell ringers, as a way
of practicing church service
bells while not disturbing the
public.
According to Lyons,
handbells originally came
from Great Britain, and were
introduced into the United
States by showman P.T.
Barnum, who offered them as
popular entertainment.
"This was circus music," he
grinned.


GENIAL SHOWMAN DANNY LYONS receives plaudits
at Saint Agatha's Lakeside Series handbell concert.


In keeping with the light
tone of the concert, Lyons fol-
lowed a performance of
Beethoven's well-known Ode
to Joy with an audience par-
ticipation piece. Volunteers
rang bells at random while
the rest of the crowd accom-
panied Lyons vocally on a re-


prise of the Ode.
Other works were Chopin's
Minute Waltz, Bach's Air on
a G-String, Joplin's Bethena,
a Rodgers and Hammerstein
medley, and various tradi-
tional spiritual songs.
The concert was followed
by a reception.

DOH encourages Floridians


to know vaccination status


The Florida Department
of Health (DOH) advises all
Floridians to become aware
of their ilmmiunit) status for
the measles, mumps, ru-
bella (MMR) vaccine in light
of the recent mumps out-
break in the Midwest.
"W C '';'.! c-: i l 'I to
know the status t t1.I i .11r-
cinations in order to ensure
- .: ty and resistance
against -:..:,'. ,: c .L-. in-
r::.u...r. mumps," said DOH
Secretary M1 R ,i,, Frangois
M.D.
"'': ,i< : routine vaccina-
tions help protect individu-
als and raise their levels of


immunity. While vaccines
are not 100 percent effective,
they do offer the highest
form of protection against
harmful infections and dis-
eases."
Mumps is a contagious
disease spread by mucus or
droplets from the nose or
throat of an infected person,
usually when that person
coughs or sneezes.
Transmission can also oc-
cur if an infected individual
touches an object with un-
clean hands and someone
else touches the same sur-
face and then rubs their
eyes, mouth or nose.


Transmission of this type
reinforces the importance of
healthy habits, including
proper hand washing, keep-
ing fingers away from one's
eyes, nose or mouth, and
sneezing and coughing into
a tissue or one's sleeve.
Any individual who expe-
riences the following symp-
toms: fever, headache,
muscle aches, tiredness and
loss of appetite, followed by
the onset of parotitis (swol-
len and tender salivary
glands under the ears- on
one or both sides), should

SThe Teacup
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
SPastor, Freeport UMC
God is busy shaping every Christian for his work, and his Glory,
if we cooperate with Him. Listen to this story:
There was a couple who used to go England to shop in the beau-
tiful store. This was their 25th wedding anniversary. They both
liked antiques and pottery and especially teacups. They said," May
we see that? We've never seenone quite so beautiful." As the lady
handed it to them, suddenly the teacup spoke, "You don't under-
stand." It said, "I have not always been a teacup.There was a time
when I was red clay. My master took me and rolled me and patted
me over and over, and I yelled out, "Let me alone," but he only
smiled, "Not yet!"
"Then I was placed on a spinning wheel, and suddenly I was
spun around and around and around. 'Stop it I'm getting dizzy!
I screamed. But, the master only nodded and said, 'Not yet.'
Then he put me in the oven. I never felt such heat. I yelled and
knocked at the door. I could see him through the opening and I
could read his lips as he shook hid head, 'Not yet'.
"Finally, the door opened, he put me on the shelf, and I began
to cool. And he brushed and painted me all over. The fumes were
horrible. I thought I would gag. 'Stop it, Stop it!' I cried. He only
nodded, 'Not yet!' Then suddenly he put me back into the oven,
not like the first one. This was twice as hot and I knew I would
suffocate. I begged. I pleaded. I screamed. I cried. I would never
make it. I was ready to give up. But, the door opened and he took
me out and placed me on the shelf. An hour later he handed me a
mirror and said 'Contemplate yourself.' And I did. I said, 'That's
not me; that couldn't be me. It's beautiful. I'm beautiful.'
"I want you to remember, then,' he said, 'I know it hurts to be
rolled and patted, but if I just had left you alone, you'd have dried
up.' I know it made you dizzy to spin around on the wheel, but if
I had stopped, you would have crumbled. I know it hurts, and it
was hot and disagreeable in the oven, but if I hadn't put you there,
you would have cracked. I know the fumes were bad when I
brushed and painted you all over, but if I hadn't done that, you
never would have hardened. You would not have had any colour
in your life, and if I hadn't put you back in that second oven, you
wouldn't survive for long because the hardness would not have
held. Now you are a finished product.
You are what I had in mind when I started with you." God
knows what He's doing [for us ]. He is the potter, and we are His
clay. He will mold us and makes us, so that we may be made into
a flawless piece of work to consummate His good, pleasing and
perfect will. See you in Church this Sunday! 10 a.m.

\ When I'm Gone:
in \' vet
When I come to the end of my journey
And I travel my last weary mile,
Just forget if you can,
That I ever frowned
And remember only the smile.
Forget unkind words I have spoken:
Remember some good I have done.
Forget that I ever had a heartache
And remember I've had loads of fun.
Forget that I stumbled
And blundered
And sometime fell by the way.
Remember I have fought
Some hard battles
And won, ere the close of the day,
Then forget to grieve for my going,
I would not have you sad for a day,
But in summer
Just gather some flowers
And remember the place where I lay.
And come in the evening
When the sun paints the
Sky in the west
Stand for a few moments beside me
And remember only my best.

PdL softball claims district title


by Patrick Casey
The Ponce de Leon Pirates
softball team got a one-hitter
from Hillary Harper and
scored eight runs in the sec-
ond inning as PDL claimed
an 11-1 victory over Cotton-
dale in the District 1, Class
2A championship game.
PDL captured its first fast-
pitch softball district champi-
onship by winning two games
over five days in the four
team district. PDL edged
Vernon 5-4 in the semifinals
to get to the title contest.
The game against Cotton-
dale was not in doubt for long
as the Pirates sent 12 batters
to the plate in the second in-
ning, scoring eight runs on six
hits in the frame. The Pirates
saw every member of the
stiiting nine reach base dur-
ing the five-inning contest as
the Hornets struggled with
their pitching and fielding.
Stephanie Gillis led the way
with two hits for the Pirates.
Seven different players had
at least one RBI for the
squad.
Harper's pitching and
PDL's outstanding defensive
play held the Hornets to one
lone run in the contest. The
win was especially sweet for
the Pirates as they had lost
both regular season contests
to the Hornets.
PDL Head Coach Mike
Stafford was pleased with the
outcome. "We played ex-
tremely well in the field and
got ahead of them early at
home. We are peaking at the
right time of the year."

WALTON'S CHRISTIE WICKERSHAM puts the ball in
play for the Braves 14-0 semifinal win over South Walton.


Walton softball

qualifies for playoffs


by Patrick Casey
The Walton Braves softball
team earned the school's first
trip to the fast-pitch playoffs
in the 13-year history of the
sport at the school as the
Braves knocked off South
Walton 14-0 in a District 1,
Class 3A contest.
The Lady Braves will open
on the road in Marianna(16-
11) after losing the district
championship game to
Northview 5-4. A Walton win
in the first round would likely
send the Braves on the road
to the Jacksonville area for a
second round state playoff
game on Friday, April 28
Walton(21-4) left no doubt
in the district semifinal that
they were going to get their
playoff berth as Walton
plated six runs in the first
inning against the Seahawks.
The Braves added four more
runs in the second and third
innings for a 14-0 lead that
turned into a shutout win af-
ter five innings of play.
Walton ran into trouble in
the championship game
against the host early. The
Chiefs plated a pair of runs
in the first inning, then an-
other run in the second to
take a 3-0 lead. Walton ral-
lied in the bottom of the
fourth inning as Sarah King
singled in Walton's first run
of the game. Summer Renfro


followed with a 2-RBI triple
later in the inning to tie the

game at 3-3.

Northview retook the lead
in the top of the sixth inning
as a pair of fielding errors put
runners on first and second.
Shortstop Megan Pickern
provided the key hit with a
tw~o-out double down the
third base line to give
Northview a 4-3 lead. Han-
nah Gunter followed with an
RBI single to up the advan-
tage to 5-3.
Walton responded with a
lone run in the bottom of the
sixth inning as Jana Ramsey
tripled to lead off the inning
and scored on King's ground-
out to cut the deficit to 5-4.
Walton could do no further
damage in the inning and
was retired in order in the
seventh to give the Chiefs the
victory.
Each team committed five
errors in the contest, but
Walton was hurt more by the
miscues. The Braves had de-
feated Northview in both
regular season contests, but
had to fight windy conditions
and a raucous crowd pulling
for the Chiefs on their home
field early in the contest.
Christie Wickersham struck
out five batters while allow-
ing six hits to the Chiefs in
taking the loss.


Bobcats dominate

Knights, Bulldogs stumble


By CHUCK HINSON
Paxton was unstoppable as
they rolled over Rocky Bayou
in the first round of District
1-A play, 21-11.
The Lady Bobcats ad-
vanced to the next round of
play after only five innings
with Rocky Bayou. Emmalee
Infinger got the win on the
mound for Paxton, while
Allison Johnson took the loss
for the Lady Knights.
Paxton's Jessica Fink and
Courtney Davidson both had
three hits. Stevie Davidson
had two hits and Allison Van
Voorde had two hits and
scored a run for the Bobcats.
Jennifer Bartling had
three RBIs.
Freeport was not so fortu-


nate as they fell to the Jay
Lady Royals.The Lady Bull-
dogs were down by only one
run in the first inning, but
that would be the only time
the Lady Bulldogs would
keep in a close race with Jay
in the opening round of the
1-2A District tournament.
Nicole Dykes led Freeport
with tvio hits. Stephanie
Houser had the only hit of the
game.
Seanna Houser scored
Freeport's only run in the top
of the first inning.

Restoration


Growth will soon


outpace


restarts with more


turtle safeguards


By Dotty Nist
The large-scale Walton
County/Destin beach resto-
ration project is in progress
again after a 56-hour delay
due to the death of a Kemp's
Ridley sea turtle resulting
from dredging.
"After inspection of dredg-
ing records by the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers, the
project was authorized to re-
start on Saturday morning,"
commented marine scientist
Brad Pickel, beach manage-
ment director for the South
Walton Tourist Development
Council (TDC).
Kemp's Ridley sea turtles
are a federally protected en-
dangered species.
Around-the-clock trolling
for sea turtles in the dredg-
ing area began about a
month ago after the death of
a threatened loggerhead sea
turtle, Pickel said.
TDC spokesperson Tracy
Louthain said that at that
time precautions that would
normally have been started


on May 1, the beginning of
sea turtle nesting season,
were put in place, including
the 24-hour trolling. The wa-
ter is warmer than normal
for this time of year, making
sea turtles more active near
shore, she explained.
Louthain said that the
U.S. Army Corps made addi-
tional recommendations for
turtle protection after the un-
fortunate loss of the Kemp's
Ridley sea turtle. Some relate
to the powering up of
dragheads and others will
prohibit dredging in an area
where an obstruction exists
which may have prevented
effective trawling for turtles
around the dredge.
"These operational proce-
dure modifications should
minimize the potential for
additional sea turtle takes,"
Louthain explained.
Louthain also reported
that representatives of Wal-
ton County and the restora-

RESIDENTS ARE BEING asked to share their vision for
CR 30A as part of an application for the designation of CR-
30A as a state scenic roadway.


By Dotty Nist
"How would you like to see
the highway in twenty
years?'! :
This is one of the, ques-
tions being posed to the com-
munity about CR-30A, one of
the most important road-
ways in south Walton County
for locals and tourists, and
probably the most scenic.
If a local grass roots effort
succeeds, CR-30A could join
a group of only six roadways
to be designated as state sce-
nic roadways by the Florida
Scenic Highway Program.
The nearest of those is the
Scenic Bluffs Highway in
Pensacola.
Advantages of obtaining
such, a designation are en-
hancement of community
pride and eligibility for vari-
ous grants for preservation
and improvement of the
roadway. Some funding ex-
amples would be safety en-
hancements, interpretative
signage, welcome centers, or
purchase of property along
the corridor for public use.
About $9.5 million of re-
cently approved improve-
ments are already in store for
CR-30A over the next few
years, including several traf-


fic signals or roundabouts,
turn lanes, and other
projects. However, there is
still plenty of opportunity for
the public to participate in
planning for the roadway.
Plans are for a corridor
management plan for CR30-
A now being prepared by the
local Corridor Advisory
Group (CAG) to go hand in
hand with Walton County's
improvements plan for the
corridor.
The management plan
represents a step in the ap-
plication procedure for the
designation of CR-30A as a
state scenic corridor.
On April 20, a small group
of attendees at the monthly
CAG meeting "visioned" on
the roadway, responding to a
series of questions, including
their what they foresaw for
the highway within the next
20 years, what improve-
ments were need ', what
existing resource, needed
highlighting or enhance-
ment, the major "issues"
along the corridor, and what
resources and support facili-
ties would draw people to
CR-30A.
CAG coordinator Claire


Bannerman said she had re-
cently driven the length of
the corridor and along the
connecting north-south
roads. She noted that much
clean up is needed along the
connector roads. She added
that many of the bridges
along CR30-A are unsightly
and need "softening" with
native vegetation such as
grasses. Bannerman also
suggested standardizing
trash containers for a better
appearance.
One of the first sugges-
tions coming to many
people's minds is burying
overhead power lines. How-
ever, District 5 Commis-
sioner' Cindy Meadow, who
was present for April 20
meeting, said that there are
no current plans to do this
since it has been estimated
as a $50 million project, and
the county is already facing
the need for a $50 million
beach restoration project on
the central and eastern Wal-
ton County coastline.
Other visioning sugges-
tions from attendees in-
cluded: common signage
along the corridor, directional
markers, consistent rental
signs, consistent landscap-
ing, extensive landscape at
gas stations, low level light-
ing, mile markers, parking
management, designated
golf cart travel areas connect-
ing communities, public
transport such as jitneys,
consistent speed limits, and
informational kiosks along
the roadway.
The CAG will continue to
survey the community on its
vision for CR-30A. The pub-
lic is encouraged to attend
CAG meetings or to contact
Bannerman for information
or to provide input. CAG
meetings are held at 5 p.m
each third Thursday at the
South Walton Tourist Devel-
opment Council office.
Bannerman may be reached
at the District 5 County Com-
mission Office number, 622-
3059.

By Dotty Nist
Sacred Heart Hospital of
the Emerald Coast broke
ground last week on a
22,000-foot women's center
that will provide childbirth
services and other health
care services fpr women.
Located at Mack Bayou
Road and U.S. 98, Sacred
Heart Hospital of the Emer-
ald Coast, south Walton
County's first hospital,
opened a little over three
years ago. Fifty beds are cur-
rently available.
"The expansion of
Women's Services is a real
tribute to the community, to
their support, leadership and
vision to continually improve
access and quality of
healthcare in our region,"
said Roger Hall, hospital
president.
Attending the April 20

services is a much-needed
addition to our community,"
she said.
To be located just west of
the hospital entrance, the
new $22 million addition will
house four large childbirth
suites, eight private postpar-
tum suites, a nursery for
newborns, and a waiting
area. There will be a separate
entrance for the women's
center. Plans are for delivery
services to be available at the
center by fall 2007.
To be added as well at the


hospital will be new women's
diagnostic and wellness ser-
vices, including mammogra-
phy, ultrasound and bone
density scanning, and obste-
tricians' and gynecologists'
offices. The new diagnostic
services are expected to be
available in fall 2006.
Along with the expansion
will come approximately 30
new positions at the hospital,
and a $1.5 million payroll is
expected in connection with
the new delivery and diag-
nostic services.











THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 27, 2006


Coastal Dune Lake Board seeks BCC action


By Leah Stratmann

In what was an otherwise
routine meeting of the
Coastal Dune Lake Advisory
Board (CDLAB) a few
months ago, there was some
good news and some bad
news. The task the volunteer
advisory board has accepted
is to monitor the coastal dune
lakes and activities affecting
the environmental conserva-
tion of the lakes, within the
coastal dune lake protection
zone and within areas of the
watersheds of the coastal
:dune lakes. The Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) ap-
Spoints this advisory board.
The good news came from
Stephanie Benedetti, a per-
mit specialist with the
county's public works depart-
ment. Benedetti's job is a new
one created by the county to
help secure permits for
county projects without .de-
lay. The public works depart-
ment is the agency called
when water levels on any of
the coastal dune lakes need
attention. In the past, this
has meant that the county
then has to petition the De-
partment of Environmental
Protection (DEP) to obtain an
emergency permit before the
county can take any action on
the lakes.
Benedetti told the advi-
sory board the county has
asked DEP for a joint coastal
permit (JCP) which would
allow the county to work on
Eastern, Western, Oyster
and Alligator Lakes without
contacting DEP first.
"DEP has submitted a fi-
nal request for additional in-
formation and we believe the
JCP will be granted. This will
speed up the process of open-
ing up the coastal dune lakes
if lake levels reach trigger
elevation," Benedetti said.
"Because the coastal dune
lakes are so unique, we have
not been able to take the nec-
essary steps to open them
without going to the DEP
first. This should streamline
and speed up t he process."
Si .t was noted that all the
lakes are in a continuously
moving state. Hurricanes
push sand into the lakes,
which are fresh water lakes

interacting with seawater,
creating a unique eco-sys-
tem. Another factor affecting
the health and well being of
the 15 coastal dune lakes in
Walton County is develop-
ment.
The advisory board is
making a unique and specific
plan for each lake and gen-
eral plans that need to be
implemented for all the
lakes. Specific needs have
been identified for each lake.
"Lake Powell has been
manipulated for a very long
time by using shovels to dig
a trench and allowing water
to take its course," said Ri-
chard Bryan of the Lake
Powell Community Alliance.
"Right now there is a trickle
and we are getting com-
plaints from the west about
the discoloration of the wa-
ter."
Bryan noted that while all
permits pertaining to Lake
Powell are held by the state
because it is a recreational
area with boat ramps, "a sig-
nificant portion of the water-
shed and a creek is wetland
within Walton County."
Bryan said there is not
proper drainage in the area,
but his community alliance is
committed working with de-
velopers in the region to
maintain the lake's delicate
system.
Others have reported to
the committee that Draper
Lake has beei dug out ille-
gally and area citizens want
signs erected stating the il-
legality of digging without
permits from the county or
DEP.
The Lakeside at Blue
Mountain development
brought about the most dis-
cussion and prompted the
suggestion of a letter from
the advisory board to the
BCC regarding future devel-
opments.
As there are a number of de-
velopments in various stages
around the northern side of
Eastern Lake, and develop-
ment needs vary in each case,
the advisory committee seeks
S :. i. ,


a change in policy from the
BCC. The committee will ask
the BCC to "require all future
development impacting the
lakes to have a storm water
system in place as the first
sequence of the project,
which will continue through-
out the project." If this re-
quest is granted, it is hoped
that future problems such as
those currently plaguing
Eastern Lake will be avoided.
The full text of the letter
was agreed upon at the April
CDLAB meeting and reads
as follows:
"The Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
places a high value on our
global rare coastal dune
lakes and has created the
Coastal Dune Lake Advisory
Boaid to make recommenda-
tions regarding those bodies
of water. The mission of the
Coastal Dune Lake Advisory
Board is' as follows:
A commission appointed
advisory board dedicated to
preserving, protecting and
enhancing the fifteen Coastal
Dune Lakes of Walton
County.
Since Walton County has
placed such a high priority on
ensuring the future stability
of these globally rare coastal
dune lakes, the advisory
board has initiated a compre-
hensive management plan
under the auspices and ap-
proval of the Board of County
Commissioners.
While we are in the pro-
cess of creating said manage-
ment plan, it has come to the
board's attention that with
the increased pressures of


growth and development
around the lakes, we are see-
ing an increase in encroach-
ments into and degradations
of the fragile lake shores and
wetlands systems. Due to
those encroachments and
degradations and in order to
be proactive in preventing
such, the advisory board rec-
ommends that the Board of
County Commissioners re-
quire additional safeguards
to the lakes during the earli-
est stages of development.
The advisory board feels
that this issue is so urgent
that it cannot await the de-
velopment and adoption of.
management plans for the.
individual lakes. The Coastal
Dune Lake Advisory Board
therefore requests that the
Board of County Commis-
sioners require that all devel-
opments impacting a coastal
dune lake have a functional,
stabilized storm water sys-
tem in place as the first se-
quence to construction and
maintain said system during
entire course of construction
of the development. The sys-
tem should be such that it
will continue to function ef-
fectively after the developer
is finished with the project if
properly maintained by the
new owners of the property.
These additional safe-
guards are necessary to pro-
tect our fragile lakes through
the entire development pro-
cess. These recommenda-
tions do not inflict any addi-
tional burden to develop-
ment, as storm water man-
agement is required of every
project currently being built

in our county. Additionally, it
is clear to this board that
whatever restorations are
required after said encroach-
ments can never return the
lake shore to its condition
prior to the encroachment
and therefore a proactive ap-
proach will serve the commu-
nity and the lakes better
than any attempts to rectify
said degradation.
The Coastal Dune Lake

recommendation in a speedy
manner to prevent any fur-
ther irreversible encroach-
ments and degradations into
these globally rare and
unique eco-systems. We ap-

Aerators:




Go with the Flow

Do you have a faucet that blasts out a

huge stream of water?

If it doesn't have an aerator tip,

you're wasting money.



Aerators are a simple and inexpensive way to save

money on your water bill. These little devices

screw onto the business end of your faucet.

They save you money by mixing air with the

water, creating a flow that is still forceful but that

uses far fewer gallons per minute.

How much difference does it make?

When washing hands, doing dishes or anything

else other than filling something up. with an

aerator you will use 50 percent less water.

Not a bad savings for something that

costs only a couple of bucks.

So check \'our kitchen sink, bathroom

lavatories, laundry tubs, and bar sinks.

If they don't have aerators, put one on.

You .. i save dough

by cutting the flow.

be required to provide either
land or funds at $25,000 per
student so the school district
can keep up." Miller also
pointed out the $25,000 per
student does not take into
account the increased cost of
acquiring more teachers and-
the difficulty of recruiting
teachers due to the lack of
affordable housing in the
area.
Miller says his office be-
gan sending letters to devel-
opers in January apprising
them of the impact of devel-
opment on the school district.
"The county has impact
fees in place, but the school
district does not. We are look-
ing at between $150 and
$200 million to build these
schools over the next 10
years. Right now we have
nothing in place to collect
these fees other than point-
ing out to the developer what
the considerations are. This
is known as proportional fair
share mitigation.
"Two developments have
already pledged land in Free-
port," Miller said. "If a devel-
opment is going to impact
Freeport with 100 students,
developers are going to have
to provide for those 100 stu-
dents in Freeport. Freeport
is only 30 students away
from being at 100 percent ca-
pacity. In Freeport-alone,
there are around 24,000
homes projected to be built
in the next few years," Miller
emphasized.
At the most recent meet-
ing of the Walton County
Planning Commission, there
were 17 agenda items, each
one of which translated into
plans to build either single
family or multiple family
dwellings. Adding up the
projects yielded 1407 single-
family homes and 301 multi-
family dwellings. Using the
multiplier outlined by Miller,
this would have the'effect of
adding 168 students.
"In the south end of the
county there are a number of
smaller developments and
the scenario at the last plan-
ning commission has been
going on for 15 months. We
are going to be transferring
a number of students from
Butler Elementary to Bay
Elementary. We built 10 new
classrooms for Bay plus a
media and exceptional stu-
dent center that can accom-
modate about 270 students,"
Miller said. Miller pointed
out that many of the current
problems faced by Walton
County, as well as others, is
a -direct result of the class

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, APRIL 27, 2006


If you were any-
where near Hwy 98
this past weekend,
you saw traffic and
lots of it. Not only
was it a great week-
end to travel to the
beach, but several
large events were
taking place all
along the Emerald
Coast.

No matter how early you
might have hit the road this
past weekend, you got caught
in a traffic jam from Hwy.
331, all the way to the
Okaloosa Island Bridge.
Events that could quench
one's desire for boats, music,
food, art and wine, could be
found, all on the Hwy 98 cor-
ridor.
First stop was the biggest
crowd-drawer and another
record-breaking event for
Walton County, the 2006
Seabreeze Jazz Festival that
was held this past weekend
at Seascape Resort in
Miramar Beach.
The weekend started out at
Chan's Wine Shop in Destin
where more than 750 tickets
were sold to the Wine Maker
and Shaker's event that was
headlined by guitarists
Chuck Loeb. The parking lot
of the local wine shop was
converted into a concert
venue, highlighted with some
of the top wine makers and
vineyards in the country.
More than 10,000 tickets
were sold to the Saturday
and Sunday event at Sea-
scape. The WSBZ 106.3
smooth jazz event included
performers such as Bona
Fide, Brian Culbertson,
Joyce Cooling, Rick Braun,
Euge Groove, The
Rippingtons, Nestor Torres,
and several others. The stage
was alive and the driving
range's make-shift concert


venue was filled to capacity.
The event, that now has
taken place at the biggest
outdoor event venue on the
Emerald Coast, once again
broke records from the pre-
vious year. More than 70
vendors, provided by Hill-
top Productions, also saw
record attendance and par-
ticipation from artists and
vendors from around the
world.
Across the road and down
just a little ways from Sea-
scape, the third annual
Baytowne Boat Show took
place at the Sandestin Ma-
rina. Both Saturday and
Sunday was filled with boats
and yachts fromh such dealers
as Treasure Island Marina,
Galati Yachts, Legendary
Marine and others.
Throughout the weekend,
these merchants introduced
and showcased their new
lines of watercraft, while at
the same time giving demon-
strations and courses on boat
safety. The event drew hun-
dreds of boat and watercraft
plvers.
On the same property, the
Sandestin Wine Festival got
underway, as they presented
the festival's 20th anniver-
sary.
Celebrity wine makers like
Peter Mondavi, Jr., Michael
Martini and Peter Seghesio,
Jr., were all on hand for the
event that saw record
crowds. Throughout the
weekend, more than a dozen
events, including the grand
wine tasting, dinners, dem-
onstrations, private dinners
and auctions of rare wines,
took place.
The Seabreeze Jazz Festi-
val and the Sandestin Wine
Festival even paired up
throughout the weekend as
celebrity wine makers set up
camp and poured for the
Seabreeze Jazz Festival VIP
ticket holders. It was a con-
stant flow of limos and
shuttle buses through the
two properties, all weekend
long.

The public was treated to
food, drink and tours of Wal-
ton County's new quarters

forcement departments on

The event was well at-
tended.
The new facility is a 3500-
square-foot modular building
located a short distance
north of the South Walton
Courthouse Annex and just
east of the Coastal Branch
Library, at 46 Coastal Cen-
ter Boulevard.
Sixteen employees, includ-
ing building department per-
sonnel and code enforcement

GROWTH


From 4C

have the capacity for 971 stu-
dents and there are currently
792 students enrolled.
Development plans in the
DeFuniak Springs area call
for between 1000 and 1400
new home sites in the next
few years, Miller said. While
the multiplier for the north
end of the county is smaller
at .38 per 100, there will be
an impact on the school sys-
tem. The district will break
ground on a new elementary
school in Mossy Head in the
fall of 2006. When the new
school is complete, Mossy
Head students will be taken
out of the schools in DeFu-
niak Springs.
