Freeport hears traffic



infrastructure proposal


By Ben Grafton
On April 27 in City Hall,
the Freeport Council meet-
ing opened with a presenta-
tion by George Newman, of
the Engineering Section,
Walton County Growth Man-
agement Division, Newman
asked Freeport. to join the
county and its other commu-
nities in a coordinated effort
to deal with problems of traf-
fic concurrency.
The county realizes that its
traffic problems carry over
intolits communities just as
community problems carry
over into county roads. Stat-
ing that developers should be
treated the same anywhere
in the county, Newman com-
mented on Florida's legisla-
tion thatlrequires developers
to pay a "proportional fair
share" for achieving traffic
concurrency where traffic
conditions resulting from de-
velopment will exceed ac-
cepted standards.
Newman asked the city to


join in an interldcal agree-
ment, similar to one already
worked out with DeFuniak
Springs, that would preserve
city sovereignty and control,
standardize traffic
concurrency calculations,
and adopt a system in which
communities would send
traffic data to the county.
The county would perform
appropriate analysis and
make recommendations to
the city for decision and ac-
tion.
Mayor Mickey Marse. sup-
ported a traffic workshop for
local governments and the
county to "get everyone on
the same page." Marse also
said that south Walton was'
over-built, that its traffic
load impacts, everything
north in Walton, and that
"now they want us to pay for
the roadway improvements."
City Planner Latilda
Henninger advised the coun-
cil that the county was work-
ing on a plan to deal with


such emergencies arising
from storms and other de-
structive forces. Grant funds
are being sought to provide
facilities to deal with such
emergencies. The city will
provide input about its emer-
gency equipment and facility
needs.
SHenninger presented the
development proposal for the
Freeport Boatyard on Four
Mile Creek.
She reported that the Free-
port Planning Board had re-
viewed the proposal and rec-
ommended approval pro-
vided the tree mitigation
plan was improved.
The council approved the
project subject to additional
work on the tree mitigation
plan.

Engineer Tony Peters re-
ported that the Phase II
sewer bids have been re-
viewed. The low bid of
$490,000 was submitted by
Southeastern Underground.


The council approve'
ing the contract.

DFS cemetery board



approves changes


THE NORTH WALTONRELAYFOR LIFE event was held at Yates Memorial Stadium at
WTaltorn High School from Friday evening to Saturday noon. As usual, the celebration began
with a 'survivor's walk.' The annual fundraiser has become a staple in the community and
always attracts enthusiastic participants. This year, the group raised more than $87,568.


By Ron Kelley
At the quarterly meeting
of the DeFuniak Springs
Cemetery Board at City Hall,
Tuesday, April 18, local citi-
zens repeatedly expressed
their unhappiness with the
past handling of cemetery
plot issues and questioned
the board on every facet of
the cemetery operations. At
times, the discussion became
quite heated and at one
point, staff asked the police
officer, present during the
meeting, to quiet the audi-
ence.
Board members Jack
Owens, Jack Hicks and
Harold Carpenter heard
from the city manager, Kim
Presnell, city attorney
Clayton Adkinson and the
cemetery grounds keeper,
Rick Rodgers, as well as the
public.
Presnell presented a list of


proposed changes to the cur-
rent cemetery ordinance. The
first involved the use of avail-
able space within any plot in
the cemetery's oldest section,
which is everything west of
the front entrance and a por-
tion of the lots to the east of
the entry.
The first proposal allowed
lot owners to use as many
gravesites as their plot will
hold, allowing for spaces of 6
feet 8 inches by 11 feet 6
inches.
A number of citizens ad-
dressed this, including Earl
Matthews, who was nearly
prevented from burying his
mother in .he family plot,
despite clearly having room
for two more spaces.
Funeral home director
Joel Glenn said there are
many like that in the cem-
etery.
Presnell agreed that "mis-


takes have been made" and
board member Jack Owens
proposed that unless the
deed specifically stated how
many spaces would be al-
lowed, lots in the old section
could contain as many
gravesites as practical. The
spaces would have to be no
smaller than 96 inches by 42
inches in size. The cemetery
board agreed unanimously.
Another thorny issue at
the cemetery involves flow-
ers and decorations, includ-
ing benches and live plants
or trees. The old ordinance
called for someone to make a
judgment call regarding
whether or not a gravesite
display was "in good taste."
That has been eliminated.
There are no restrictions
of any kind in the "old sec-
tion," but there are restric-

A hot topic for


DeFuniak


Springs council


MM i---7

By Leigh Strickland
With the city of DeFuniak
S Springs growing rapidly,
S questions arise about how to
fund sufficient fire protection
for the city.
The issue has come up be-
fore the City Council repeat-
edly in recent weeks as a fair
way to address this need is
sought.
DeFuniak Springs Fire
Chief Brian Coley spoke
about the need for increased
funds for the fire depart-
ment.
"What we want to do," he
said, "is look at different
ways to fund the fire depart-
ment so that we can survive."
The fire department,does
more for the city than fight'
fires. It also responds to car
crashes, does fire prevention.
and inspection work, and
does training outside of the
department.
Though the fire depart-
ment handles these things, it
does not generate any rev-
enue. Every cost incurred by
the department is a loss for
the city, which provides most
of the budget for the depart-
ment.
This cost is expected to in-
crease as the city's popula-
tion increases and its bound-
aries expand.
According to Coley, the
ps7 biggest need is for increased
-. manpower. "These fire fight-
ers here are good," he said.
e of the "They don't fool around."
Even so, there is.always
the opportunity for injury or
accident. With more people
on the scene, Coley said,
there is less chance of things
going wrong, less chance of a
loss of life or property.
Increasing man power will
benefit the community, he
said, in that incidents will be
controlled more quickly and
safely.
With growth, though,
.. -there "is an increased chance
d award- of multiple fires at the same
time. Without enough fire
Haynes fighters on duty, the chance
consider of loss of life and property is
.rt of the then increased.

well as the future need for

es, and The DeFuniak Springs
currently City Council and City Man-
ssue. ager Kim Presnell are among
Rhodes, those currently weighing the
earlier re- options.
incilman Presnell, whose recom-
iation on mendation on the issue will
operties have some influence on the
oad. told council's ultimate decision,
raft map said that she wants to recom-
r review, mend the most fair and eco-
ves, the nomically feasible option to
ave a full help provide the service
d for the while having the least
amount of impact on resi-


dents of the city.
She is still, she said, re-
searching the most fair and
equitable way of doing this.
Councilman Don Harrison
also mentioned providing an
equitable solution, saying
that it may take several
inonths to reach a decision on,
what is the best combination
of sources for funding.
Councilman Harrison and
Councilman Roy McLeod.
both mentioned keeping an
open mind to different op-
tions.
The problem, McLeod
said, is fairness.
Florida statute provides
one way of recovering costs
associated with responding
to fires. Although the city is
not currently doing so, under
the statute it has the author-
ity to charge a fee after re-
sponding to a fire. This fee,
though, would only be ap-
plied to homeowners who
have insurance.
The prospect of charging
insurance policy holders and
not those who do not pay in-
surance calls this method
into question.
Presnell said, "In one
sense it does seem like you're'
penalizing people who pay
insurance."
Some have also voiced con-
cern that charging the insur-
ance companies in this way'
would increase insurance
rates, since companies rou-
tinely pass on any cost in-
creases to the consumer.
Coley said that it is not
being billed by the city that
causes insurance rates to go
up. These rates, he said, are
set by the Florida legislature
and are based on equipment,
people, communication, and
training. Improving the fire
department could actually
improve insurance rates, he
said.
Impact fees are also being
-looked at as a source of fund-
ing. These are collected for
new developments, but funds
from the fees must be applied
to providing new things in
the area for which they are
collected.
These may help provide
new equipment and stations
for the growing community
that is bursting at the seams,
McLeod said, but could not be
applied to acquiring firemen.
Another option would in-
crease certain taxes, but that
wouldn't apply to renters and
others who don't pay taxes.
Besides, McLeod said,"We
have enough taxes as it is."
Grants may provide some
help. Coley.said they are ap-
plying for a manpower grant
this year. Other grants, like
ones for equipment, would
not go through, he said, due
to the current lack of man
power.
A fee to be included with
utility bills is another

PERSONAL COMMENTS



EDITOR'S COMMENT By RON KELLEY



From Ellis Island to the Gulf of Mexico


It .ppiar. that middle America has awakened from its
long slumber and found itself overrun with people who have
entered the country illegally.
On Mi.td..\, thousands of these illegals, many of Mexican
and Cuban birth, staged protest rallies by staying home from
work in states like California, Nevada, Texas and Florida.
The i:.,-g.i- were upset by proposed federal bills that tighten
borders and threaten deportation.
There was even a small protest rally here in DeFuniak
Sprincs. It was a peaceful affair and the protesters soft-
ened their local message by cleaning up along sections of
highway.
Faithful Readers will remember that I have repeatedly
expressed concerns about the unrestrained illegal migra-
tion of two countries into the United States. I'm referring to
Mexico and Cuba, but the truth is we don't know how many
aliens from how many different countries have snuck across
our borders unnoticed or for what purpose.
I admire people who are willing to do most anything to
reach America, who want to be Americans. I am against
anyone sneaking across our borders and entering the coun-
try illegally, regardless of their nationality.
This is not a new or original thought. Over one hundred
years ago, President Theodore Roosevelt understood exactly
what was at stake.
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant
who comes here in good faith becomes an American and as-
similates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equal-
ity with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate
against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or
origin," he said.
"But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in ev-
ery facet an American, and nothing but an American. There
can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is
an American, but something else also, isn't an American at
all."
"We have room for but one flag, the American flag ... We
have room for but one language here, and that is the En-
glish language ... and we have room for but one sole loyalty
and that is a loyalty to the American people."
How ironic that a century later, we are facing the exact
same problems to which Roosevelt referred.
Afew days ago, a friend sent me a copy of a letter that was
addressed to Sen. Bill Frist and copied to Rep. Jeff Miller
and Gov. Jeb Bush.
In it, a retired border patrol agent, David J. Stoddard, of
Hereford, Arizona, made some very valid points regarding
the whole illegal immigration issue.
In part, Stoddard writes: "Illegal aliens generally do not
want U.S.citizenship. Americans are very vain thinking that
everybody in the world wants to be a.U.S. citizen.
Mexicans, and other nationalities, want to remain citi-

offered by the United States such as employment, medical
care, in-state tuition, government-subsidized housing and
free education for their offspring.
"There are no jobs that Americans won't do. Illegal aliens
are doing jobs that Americans can't take and still support
their families. Illegal aliens take low-wage jobs, live dozens
in a single residence home, share expenses and send money
to their home country. There are no jobs that Americans
won't do for a decent wage.
Every person who illegally entered this nation left a home.
They are not homeless and they are not Americans. Some
left jobs in their home countries. They come to send money
to their real home as evidenced by the more than $20 bil-
lion sent out of the country each year by illegal aliens.
Illegal aliens are not critical to the economy. Illegal aliens
constitute less than five percent of the workforce. However,
they reduce wages and benefits for lawful U.S. residents.
Illegal aliens are not immigrants by definition. The U.S.
accepts more lawful immigrants every year than the rest of
the world combined.
Mexico is not a friend of the United States. Since 1848,
Mexicans have resented the United States. During World
War I, Mexico allowed German spies to operate freely in
Mexico to spy on the U.S. During World War II, Mexico al-
lowed the Axis powers to spy on the U.S. from Mexico. Dur-
ing the Cold War, Mexico allowed spies hostile to the U.S. to.
operate freely. The attack on the Twin Towers in 2001 was
cheered and applauded all across Mexico.
Today, Mexican school children are taught that the U.S.
stole California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.
There is not a labor shortage in this country. There are
hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of American house-
wives, senior citizens, students, unemployed and underem-
ployed who would gladly take jobs at a decent wage.
It is not racist to want secure borders and a secure
America. What is racist about not wanting people to sneak
into America and steal benefits we have set aside for legal
immigrants, senior citizens, children and other legal resi-
dents?
"You, as a politician, have a choice to offend the illegal
aliens who have stolen into this country and demanded the
rights afforded to U.S. citizens or to offend those of us who
are stakeholders in this country."
Since it's not helpful to complain without offering a solu-
tion, let me suggest that our president, our senators and
congressmen adopt the following policies regarding immi-
gration, also sent to me by a concerned friend.
1. First, if you immigrate to this country, you must speak
our native language.
2. You have to be a professional or an investor. We are not
going to take unskilled workers. You will not be allowed ..
"3. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools,
no special ballots for elections, no government business will
be conducted in your native language.
4. Foreigners will not have the right to vote, I don't care
how long they are here, nor will they ever be allowed to hold
political office.
5. If you're in our country, you cannot be a burden to tax-
payers. You will not be entitled, ever, to welfare, to food




Editor,
As most of us know, the Bush administration forced the
house of representatives to keep the voting process open
throughout the night, in order to force enough members to
approve the Medicare drug bill of 2003.
George W. Bush, (GWB) and the administration were mis-
leading us senior citizens, by telling us untruths, regarding
the Prescription Drug Law.
We sent a copy of our letter to the editor, with a copy to
George W. Bush in the hopes that he, or those in office, would
answer our letter. We have always in the past received a
response from a president, except for GWB!
If one was to purchase prescription drugs in the amount of
$2,694.00, consisting of a deductible of $250.00 plus C.O.
insurance of $500.00, plus a premium of $444.00 plus Medi-
care will pay the $1,500.00 for a total of $2,694.00. The cost
to the senior citizen, at this point is $1,194.00.
If the cost of drugs exceeds $2250.00, and if a senior citi-
zens pays 100 percent of the next $2,850.00, and only if they
are a member of the Prescription Drug Law, the total cost
that the senior citizen would pay each year is $4044.00.
The 95 percent provision is applicable to the above fig-
ures, only if the 95 percent amount is reached in a given
year. Effective on May 15, 2006, there will be penalty often
percent per month for twelve months. This penalty applies
only to non-members of the GWB Prescription Drug Law.
It is up to each senior citizen, to make his or her decision
within the next fifteen days, Yes or no?

Editor:
Walton to survey affordable housing" April 27, 2006 Daily
News. Once again, officials have waited for a crisis before
addressing a looming infrastructure problem. Better late
than never, I guess. Hopefully, participants will be more
astute and comprehending than the officials that failed to
grasp an opportunity that was presented to them six years
ago. Also, it will be beneficial if employers who need the
work force will voice support for proposals brought forth. As
usual, the first step is to conduct a study of that which seems
painfully obvious.
The Haas Center produced information on this subject
years ago and made it available to the county. I suggest a
major effort to educate people to the fact that affordable
housing does not mean subsidized housing. The people re-
siding in this housing will be mortgage/rent and tax paying
people, who in addition, provide the services necessary to
the existence of any community. These services are not lim-
ited to custodial service. They include firemen, police, nurses,
EMTs, teachers and a multitude of artisans, tradesmen and
technicians.

stamps, or other government goodies.
6. You can come if you invest here, but it must be an amount
equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage. If you don't
have that amount of money, you can't come and invest. You
have to stay home.
7. If you do come and you want to buy land, fine, but we're
going to restrict your options. You will not be allowed to buy
waterfront property; that will be reserved for citizens natu-
rally-born in our country.
8. In fact, as a foreigner, you must relinquish all individual
rights to property.
9. You may be allowed to work in this country, but only
under certain conditions, and only if you do not take a job
away from a native-born citizen. If we find that you have
done this, we will not deport you; we will throw you into
prison instead.
10. Another thing. You don't have the right to protest when
you come here. You're allowed no demonstrations, you can-
not wave a foreign flag; no political organizing; no bad-
mouthing our president or his policies; or you get sent to
prison, or if you're lucky, sent home.
11. Remember: you're a foreigner. You shut your mouth or
you get out, and if you come here illegally, you go straight to
jail, and we're going to hunt you down until we find you.
Many of you think that the laws above are harsh. They
are. Every one of them is a current Mexican immigration
law.
One final note to all illegal immigrants. If you really want
to live like Americans, do what we did stage a revolution.
Toss out the corrupt, scheming dictators who have made
your life and the lives of your families so miserable and un-
bearable that you are willing to crawl through the desert or
risk drowning in the ocean to escape. Take over the country
and set things right.
Who knows? Maybe one day, people will want to immi-
grate to your country. Just make sure they do it legally.



Commissioners supportive

of school concerns


By DOTTY NIST

"This is a pretty serious
issue. Kids need to have a
place to go to school," said Pat
Blackshear, Walton County
growth management director.
Walton County is facing a
difficult challenge with re-
gard to the school seats that
will be required for the chil-
dren who will live in the
scores of residential develop-
ments now approved and un-
der review by the county.
The Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) worked through a
lengthy agenda of such
projects on April 25. The sub-
ject of school concurrency
was discussed along with
other aspects of each residen-
:tial prcbp,'.al opn the agenda.
"" In 200'5', the State of
Florida passed legislation
aimed at linking development
with school capacity, with de-
velopers to play a key role in
insuring that capacity
through donation of land for
school sites or certain mitiga-
tion options such as impact
fees. Most local governments,
including Walton County, will
be expected to implement
these school concurrency re-
quirements by Dec. 1, 2008.
Other state requirements
already in play for the Wal-
ton County School District
are a serious concern for dis-
trict officials. State class size
requirements are posing se-
vere limits on the district as
it struggles to provide class-
room space for the county's
fast growing school-age
population.District officials
are also working hard to pre-
pare for the day when the
new state concurrency re-
quirements become effective
in Walton County.
Letters are being sent to
all developers informing
them of the impact that their
projects will have on the
school district. Officials are
also asking developers to
meet with them to discuss
ways they can help in ad-
dressing that impact.
Carlene Anderson, Walton
County school superinten-
dent, addressed the commis-
sioners at the April 25 meet-
ing. Anderson noted that al-
most all district schools are
now at capacity, and current
school construction and com-
mitments are expected to
help matters only for a lim-
ited time. She added that the
school district is subject to
fines by the state if the re-
quired student seats are not
provided.
"We don't have the borrow-
ing power to borrow the
money to build the schools
we'll need," Anderson added.
District 4 Commissioner
Ro Cuchens asked
Blackshear what will be the
result when the time comes
that the school district does
not have the funds to provide
the school seats required by
law in connection with devel-
opment projects.
Blackshear said that un-
der those circumstances the


planning department would
not be able to bring those
projects to the BCC for con-
sideration.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows wondered
what options the BCC had to
help the school district solve
capacity problems.
It was the opinion of
county attorney David
Hallman that as far as man-
dating any action by develop-
ers with regard to school
concurrency, there was noth-
ing the BCC could do at
present, since the
concurrency law had not yet
come into effect.
Blackshear noted that all
the developers she has spo-
ken with want to make sure
that school seats are avail-
able for all the students in
their developments. She was
sure that responsible devel-
opers would "do the right
thing."
One of the projects ap-
proved on April 25 was such
an example.
The Wilderness at Black
Creek will consist of 720
single-family lots, 20 multi-
family units, 40,000 square
feet of commercial area, and
a marina with 50 dry storage
units for boats. The project
will be built on a 1,543-acre
parcel north of CR-3280 ap-
proximately eight miles east
of U.S. 331.
Blackshear said she hoped
this project would "set the
tone" for school concurrency.
Lloyd Blue, one of the de-
velopers for the project, an-
nounced that they had agreed
to provide a 20-acre school
site either on the property or
on adjacent property and that
the developers would also be
funding initial planning and
design for the school to be lo-
cated there.
Anderson said that there
had been two additional com-
rmitments by developers to
provide school sites, one by
the St. Joe Company for new
development in south Walton
County and one by Jay Odom,
developer of the Hammock
Bay subdivision in Freeport.
However, Anderson
pointed out that students
come not only from large de-
velopments such as the three
who have committed to school
sites, but from the many
smaller ones, and that the
cumulative effect of the
smaller developments adds up
to a large impact.
Anderson asked the com-
missioners to hold developers
responsible for contacting the
school district to sit down and
discuss the impact of their
residential development on the
school system and possible so-
lutions.
"Just force some conversa-
tion," she urged.
The commissioners readily
complied with that request.

Dialog with the school board
regarding school concurrency
was an added condlitinon a ll
the remaining proposals for
residential developments that
were approved on April 25.

According to Marsha Pugh,
instruction and curriculum
supervisor for the Walton
County School District, 82
percent of Walton's third-
graders were proficient in
reading in the latest FCAT
test, an increase over the 75
percent score for Florida
third-graders.
In comparison to the 2005
reading scores, the 2006 re-
sults for Walton's third-grad-
ers demonstrated a 7 percent
increase in the percentage of
students attaining scores of
Levels 3-5.
Seventy-nine percent of
Walton third-graders were
also proficient in math, as
compared to only 72 percent
of third-graders statewide. In
comparison to the 2005 math
scores, the 2006 results for
Walton' s third-graders dem-
onstrated an percent in-
crease in the percentage of
students attaining scores of
Levels 3-5.
Last year, 68 third-grade
students in Walton County
faced possible retention due
to scoring Level 1 in reading.
This year, only 46 third-
grade students in the district
face possible retention.
This performance puts
Walton in the upper quartile
in both the FCAT SSS and
FCAT NRT results. Only 14
counties had a higher per-
centage of students scoring at
the proficient level in read-
ing. The same-is, true in

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY MAY 4, 2006


.EM.,V .,
Dianna Van Horn volunteers with the
American Red Cross. When the EOC
is activated during a hurricane she
coordinates the efforts of the Red
Cross in Walton County.


WALTON COUNTY THIS MONTH
"Inspire By Example" was this year's theme of National Volunteer Week, which was held on April
23-29, 2006. The week long event focuses on the power volunteers have to inspire the people they
help and to inspire others to serve. The Points of Light Foundation sponsors the event to call atten-
tion to the contributions of and the need for more community service. Volunteers are people who
identify what issues are most pertinent to our communities and then set out to make things better.
Residents of Walton County who share their time and talents to make a difference were honored
during National Volunteer Week by the Walton County Board of County Commissioners. In the
Board of County Commissioners Board meeting on April 11, 2006 a resolution was passed pro-
claiming April 23-29, 2006 as "Volunteer Week" in Walton County. A reception was held to honor
all volunteers on Tuesday, April 25, at the Walton County Courthouse. The Commissioners wanted
to honor county volunteers who are giving back by donating hours of service to create a better
county for us all.
In Walton County volunteers serve on the-ADA Committee, Affordable Housing Committee, Beach
Education & Safety Committee, Coastal Dune Lake Advisory Board, Code Enforcement Board,
College Avenue Complex Committee, Community Development Citizens Advisory Committee,
Competency Board, Cultural Plan Advisory Committee and the Design Review Board. Others
serve on the Library Advisory Board, Lighting Ordinance Committee, Morrison Springs Advisory
Committee, Mossy Head Enterprise Zone Development Agency, Planning Commission, Recreation
Board, Tourist Development Council, Workforce Development Board, and the Zoning Board of
Adjustments.
Other volunteers give of themselves to our community by serving as 4-H sponsors, others coach
little league, soccer, or pee-wee football. Many parents donate their time to area schools and go on
field trips, bake cookies and lead scout troops. There are unsung angels who visit the shut-ins and
those without families who live in area nursing homes, and those who help children in crisis.
Many organizations such as the Florida Chautauqua, the Chautauqua Assembly, South Walton
Community Council, Ki\Lanis Club, Lions Club. Pilot Club, Rotary Club, Ruritan Club. Freeport
Town Planners, and the D.B.P.A.. for example, are made up of volunteers who give of their time.
their money, and their talents to help others.
To all volunteer-heroes, Walton CouintN thanks you ofor all you do to make Walton Count\ a better
place to live.


Barbara Allen is a member of the De-
Funiak Springs Garden Club. She
recently volunteered her time to beau-
tify the Wee Care Park.


Mary Lind Devlin, Marvin Campbell, Patricia Huffman and James Coffield are
four members of the College Avenue Complex Committee. This committee is
looking into the feasibility of renovating the College Avenue Governmental
Annex into a senior center when county offices move to the courthouse.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MAY 4, 2006


U.S. 331 fishing pier


closed for repairs


The north side of the origi-
nal concrete bridge spanning
the Choctawhatchee Bay is in
need of repair and has been
closed pending repairs.
The old draw bridge, dam-
aged by a tug boat in the
1970s, was made into fishing
piers when the larger, higher
Clyde Wells Bridge was built


County Commissioner Ro
Cuchens, the north pier was
inspected by the Florida De-
partment of Transportation


across the Bay. The middle
section of the old bridge is
gone but there are sections
jutting out from the north
and south sides of the bay
that draw anglers with nets
and reels.

According to Sandra
Jenkins, aide to Walton


(DOT) and the damage was the project and report to the
discovered then. Walton County Commission
Jenkins said county Pub- regarding the cost of repairs
lic Works staff would assess and the time needed to make

In the meantime, that pier
will be closed to the public
until repairs are completed.

method being considered.
This is viewed as favorable
because it would go out to
more people.
Presnell feels that charg-
ing for the availability of the
service would be most fair.
The size and value of a
home being protected should
be factored in, Harrison said.
He would like to see some
kind of scale or percentage
put into place to take this in.


There is clearly a variety
of options that needs to be
discussed and balanced, most
of which would cost city resi-
dents money.
"I understand why people
would be upset because we
want to charge for services,"
Coley said.
But he also said, "The kind
of protection you get is based
on what you're willing to pay
for it."


Beginning May 11, 2006; Delinquent Real Estate and Tangible Personal Property taxes
will be advertised in the DeFuniak Springs Herald. Delinquent Real Estate will be printed
for three consecutive weeks prior to the Tax Certificate sale which is scheduled for June 1,
2006. Delinquent Tangible Personal Property will appear in the newspaper for one week.

tions in the "new section,"
which is on the northeastern
side of the cemetery property.
'These restrictions deal
with the number of flower
pots allowed, how long they
can remain, and when they
should be removed.
The written recommenda-
tions allow city employees to
remove any flowers or potted
plants after they wither or be-
come unsightly and have
been in the cemetery longer
than five days.
Mayor Carpenter clarified
that to mean that "live" flow-
ers will remain until they
wither and artificial flowers
will only be removed when
,they have become unsightly -
with no specific time limit.
However, the Herald pointed
out that another section of
the proposed new ordinance
clearly allows employees to
remove flowers from burial
services after five days, re-
gardless of whether or not
they are withered and un-
sightly.
Presnell replied that the
staff would correct the incon-
sistency before it is presented
to the city council for their
consideration.
Several citizens objected to
the removal of small Ameri-
can flags from gravesites, es-
pecially veterans.
Supervisor Rick Rodgers
said that he could not recall
ever removing a flag from any
gravesite. Jack Owens said
that should such flags become
old and tattered, they should
always be removed.
Other citizens complained
that personal mementos and
statuary have disappeared.
In response, the new ordi-
nance states, "The city does
not recommend and will not
be responsible for pictures or
ornaments placed on or
around a grave" and flower
containers of any discarded
flowers will be held for 14
days at the cemetery office.
Owens motioned to ap-
prove the rules as written and
the rest of the board followed
suit.


The board discussed other
ideas, including creating a
veteran's memorial marker
near the main entrance, and
possibly contracting with
Walton County ARC to
handle cemetery mainte-
nance, but no action was
taken.
Although the citizens that
gathered at City Hall spoke
out freely regarding the new
ordinance, one man observed
that the proposed ordinance
had been done without any
specific input from citizens.
"Is the cemetery for the
people?" he asked. "Shouldn't
the people have some say, in-
stead of watching the com-
mittee adopt its own recom-
mendations?"
Although none of the board
members or city staff replied
to the question directly, Kim
Presnell did express the city's
apologies for any mistakes
that had been made and any
confusion that been caused
by the city's actions.
She said the city was try-
ing to prevent future mis-
takes from happening.
The apology did not appear
to have soothed many feath-
ers, though. Many of the au-
dience members complained
about the lack of public noti-
fication and said they felt
their input and comments
were not welcome. The Her-
ald .had only received notifi-
cation about the afternoon
meeting earlier that day.
City attorney Adkinson re-
minded the board that the
meeting dates are set in the
ordinance as being held on
the third Tuesday of each
quarter and the city is under
no legal obligation to publish
an announcement about the
meetings.
Although the DeFuniak
Springs City Council may
soon adopt the recommenda-
tions and change the ordi-
nance, the next meeting of the
cemetery board of trustees
will be held on Tuesday, July
18.

Cultural Plan Committee,
Design Review Board, Li-
brary Advisory Board, Plan-
ning Commission, Recreation

Little and Public Information
Coordinator Sara Comander,
Rosier Cuchens and Kenneth
Pridgen of the Board of
County Commissioners,
Claire Bannerman, Kris

Butte rfys butter


0I
'aL~


DONNA SIMMONS


By SALLY ORLOSKY
The Open Door Commu-
nity Club recently welcomed
Dona Simmons of the But-
terfly Rainforest Project in
Gainesville, Florida.
Simmons is the sister of
member Robin Newton, who
handily assisted her sister in
a wonderful and comprehen-
sive presentation on butter-
flies in general, and specifi-
cally, butterflies of North-
west Florida. She brought
power point presentation and
slides of her subject.
Gardeners plant certain
varieties of flora just to at-
tract butterflies to their gar-
dens. Since butterflies only
live an average of two-three
weeks, it's time to provide
flowers. as soon as possible
after they have gone through
their metamorphosis from a
caterpillar to a lovely piece of
art-like beauty.
Butterflies, aka Lepi-
doptera, which meast'scaled
win'gs,'ared mbst prolific ii
the rainforest regions; and
are the second largest group
of animals in the world.
There are an estimated
100,000 species of butterflies
still undiscovered. Butter-
flies search for two main
types of plants: plants onto
which they lay their eggs and
plants that provide them
food, two very different types
of plants. Plants on to which
they lay their eggs are plants
that are usually very dull
and not attractive as the but-
terfly wishes to use the host
plant primarily to hide its
eggs so that they will not be
eaten by other insects. An
interesting note pointed out
by Simmons was that if a
butterfly cannot find a host
plant, it would not lay eggs
at all. Feeder plants, the
other type of plants sought
by butterflies, are usually
ilmore's


very beautiful and colorful so
that the butterflies can find
them and enjoy their nectar.
On the host plant, the eggs
or larva start the metamor-
phic cycle of larva-p'upa-cat-
erpillar-butterfly. Interest-
ingly, the only job of the cat-
erpillar is to eat-eat-eat the
host plant and other plants
until it is time to form a
chrysalis and turn into a but-
terfly.
Another way to attract but-
terflies to local yards is to fill
a frisbee with a little bit of
water and put some unpeeled
bananas or mangoes (sliced
lengthwise) in with the wa-
ter and the butterflies will
come to dine.
On cooler days, the butter-
flies will not fly much but will
put their wings out and sun


.by Oyei

themselves. After a rain,
butterflies are found in the
puddles on the road. This is
called 'puddling' and the but-
terflies are drinking miner-
als leached from the road af-
ter the rairi.
Butterflies are very fragile
but can be picked up if the
fingers are used that make
the 'peace sign'. To use an
index finger and thumb is too
much pressure and will harm
'the butterfly.
Butterflies fly by day have
slender bodies, are usually
much more colorful and find
their food by color. Butter-
flies' antennae have knots at
the tip and hold their wings
together and straight up
when not flying.
Moths, however, fly by
night; find their food by smell
as they cannot see color; have

*Jt^-2 I


BUTTERFLYDISPLAY


I Door

chubby bodies and feathery
antennae and fold their
wings along their body when
they are at rest. Both butter-
flies and moths are born as
adults.
For those interested in
watching the metamorphosis
of the butterfly, one can pur-
chase a chrysalis, just as the
Butterfly Rainforest in
Gainesville does to supply
their needs.
The local 4-H clubs are cur-
rently planting a butterfly
garden in the courtyard at
the Stanley House Nursing
Home on Walton Road. The
DeFuniak Springs Garden
Club is a good source for pur-
chasing butterfly-friendly
plants for local gardens when
the club has their plant sales
in the spring and in the fall.
Simmons distributed to
each member a decorated bag
of goodies that contained ad-
ditional information on but-
terfly gardening in North-
west Florida and the butter-
flies of Northwest Florida; a
beautiful note card made es-
pecially from butterfly pho-
tos taken by her husband and
a butterfly magnet.
The next meeting of the
Open Door Community Club,
which is open to all women
of Walton County, will be on
Thursday, May 11, at 11 a.m.
at the Crossroads Best West-
ern Hotel, in DeFuniak
Springs.
The program for that meet-
ing will be the installation of
2006-2007 officers by Clerk of
Courts Martha Ingle and the
annual Crazy Hat Contest,
with prizes for first, second
and third place.
Susan Chaney and Kathy
Doering will provide decora-
tions and Carleita Levy: will
provide door prizes.
For further information,
just attend a meeting, ask a
current member or write to
the club at P.O. Box 52, Ar-
gyle, FL 32422

Music: A family affair for the Barto girls


By RON KELLEY
Music is often said to "run
in the family" and there are
some famous musical fami-
lies: the Carter Family, The
Gatlin Brothers, The
Osmonds, The Jacksons and
more.
In DeFuniak Springs, one
mother and her two children
may one day be another mu-
sical family sensation.
Belinda Barto has never
played an instrument before,
but her two girls, Courtney
and Britany, showed an in-
terest and she decided to join
them.
"It is something that I
think will probably make us
all a little closer," said Barto.
Husband Randy does not as-
pire to play, but he'll not lack
for music in his home..
Courtney, 12, favors punk
rock music. Younger sister
Britany, 10, likes punk, but
also likes classic rock and
country. Mom likes the old
rockers, Janis Joplin and Led
Zepplin.
As all three are just start-
ing out, it may be a while
before we hear Stairway To
Heaven.
Barto explained that one
of her close cousins bought
both girls a guitar for Christ-
mas 2005. Barto then found
out that Dave's Music in De-
Funiak Springs offers music
lessons and so all three
signed up.
"No one played music in
my family, though I've al-
ways wanted to learn to play
the saxophone. Of course,
there are no lessons nearby
for that," said Belinda, "and
I thought the guitar lessons
would be something I could
do with the girls that would
enrich all of us."
The threesome have their
lessons scheduled for the
same day and spend time
during the week practicing at
home.
"So far, everybody is really
enjoying it. The girls are both
busy at school and with other
activities, but they're stick-
ing with it," said Barto, "so
far. We'll see how it goes."


"BELINDA BAND THE BUSYBARTO BAND" Britany, Belinda and Courtney Barto
prepare for their music lessons.

College Avenue Church of Christ



Special Announcement


On April 23, 2006, the College Avenue Church of Christ located at 337 College Avenue in DeFuniak
Springs, Florida reached a milestone which it has been working toward for the last six years. On this day
four elders were installed as the leaders and overseers of the church. These four men: John Bradford, Larry
Gibson, William (Bill) Holladay, and Ernest Underwood were approved by the congregation to be its elders.
We rejoice that the four above named men have qualified themselves for this important work. The College
Avenue Church of Christ is completely scriptural in its organization. A goal for which we have striven and
which has been achieved.
The members of the College Avenue Church of Christ take this opportunity to invite you to any and all of
our services. You are welcomed to bring your Bibles, notepads, pens, tape recorders, etc., in short, anything
that will help you to learn the Holy Scriptures. We tape many of our sermons and they are offered free to
any who requests them. Also, outlines of the lessons are available free of charge. Outlines and other materi-
als are also available free of charge upon request, and some of this may be found on line at our website:
www.college-avenue-churchofchrist.com.
We invite you to listen to "What Do The Scriptures Say" on WZEP Radio, 1460 on your AM dial, at 7:30
each Sunday morning. We also have three one-minute spots "A Moment Of Reflection" on WZEP
Monday through Friday at various times during the day.
We are a people who believe in speaking where the Bible speaks and being silent where it is silent. We call
Bible things by Bible names, and do Bible things in Bible ways. We invite you to our next assembly, and to
all of our meetings. You will find a warm and friendly welcome.

'"Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD..." Isaiah 1:18 (KJV).

Students show humanity
through Walton Habitat


By LEAH STRATMANN
Christina Smith, a high
school student from St. Croix
corralled a group of her class-
mates at St. Croix Country
Day School to spend their
spring break volunteering for
Walton County Habitat for
Humanity. Their group,
chaperoned by math/science
teacher Dawn Grey spent
this week landscaping a
Habitat home in DeFuniak
Springs and renovating the
former Barnes' Upholstery
building on 331 just south of
Freeport.
"These young men and
women were essential for us
opening our Restore," said
Stefania Nuzzola. Nuzzola is
an Americorps volunteer fo-
cusing on getting the Restore
project up and running for
Walton County Habitat. A
Restore is a retail outlet spe-
cializing in donated building
supplies, fixtures, and house-
hold furnishings. Nuzzola
continued, "We would have
struggled to meet our June 1
Grand Opening without their


oilIII


help."
The entire Walton County
community from the beaches
to DeFuniak Springs has
reached out to make this
project viable. Point Wash-

CHELCO BOARD PRESI-
DENT Ronald Jones (right
front) and CEO Gene Smith
greet 99-year-old Clarence
Rushing at CHELCO's an-
nual meeting April22. Rush-
ing has attended 64 of
CHELCO's 65 annual meet-
ings.


CHELCO 65th annual meeting


At CHELCO's 65th annual
meeting on April 22, the
cooperative's CEO and Gen-
eral Manager Gene Smith
said he's seen tremendous
growth during his 25-year
tenure.
In 1980, upon his arrival at



PAT CARLYLE WINS a
seat on CHELCO's board of
trustees. Election results
were announced at
CHELCO's Annual Meeting
on April 22. Carlyle will rep-
resent District 1, which in-
cludes Dune Allen, Blue
Mountain Beach and
Grayton Beach. She replaces
Pat Potter, who served on
CHELCO's board from 1996
- 2006.


CHELCO, the cooperative
had 11,771 members. Cur-
rently the cooperative has in
excess of 40,000 members.At
that time, CHELCO had 55
employees, a number that
has grown to 131.
Another significant in-


crease is in the number of
miles of line. In 1980,
CHELCO had only 42 miles
of underground line and
1,923 miles of overhead line.
At the end of 2005, under-
ground lines totaled 731
miles and overhead lines to-
taled 2,768 miles.
Smith noted that the price
of the power CHELCO pur-
chases from Alabama Elec-
tric Cooperative (AEC) has
also increased dramatically.
In 1980, the cost of electric
power totaled $6 million and,
at the end of 2005, totaled
$42.4 million.
After reviewing the
changes over the past 25
years, Smith discussed the
current
state of the cooperative and
further growth.

Students and teachers at
Maude Saunders Elementary,
(MSE) school are the benefi-,
ciaries of a new, technology-
rich teaching program, called,
the 21st Century Information
and Communication Class-
room (ICC).
On April 20, school admin-
istrators, media, and other
education professionals at-.
tended a media demonstra-
tion at the school.
Visitors were conducted to,
MSE teacher Lesa Harrison's
busy ICC. Fifth-grade level;
students displayed their pro-
ficiency with an interactive
whiteboard, answering ques-
tions posed by the teacher:
and by the onscreen program.

The ICC has access to
Internet programs covering a
variety of subjects. As the les-
son progressed, students
highlighted and underlined
relevant words and passages
on the whiteboard, using a
highlighter pad that was.
passed around the room.
Students were seated at
their desks, tapping on small,
oval-shaped devices. The de-
vice, called an "Activote," en-
ables students to choose and
send their lettered answer
choices to lesson questions.:

In addition to registering
the individual students' an-
swer choices, the device tal-
lies the percentage of stu-
dents w ho answered cor-
rectly. Both class and teacher
can check on their progress.

The ICC is equipped with
a ceiling-mounted projector,
DVD, interactive whiteboard,
laptops, and student wireless
lap tops.

How Long Do We Have?
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC

* How has our life been so changed? And we never notice it. It
is very important that you read and thoroughly understand the
principles below. Do yourself and the country a favor by being
aware of these facts.
* About the time our original 13 states adopted their new con-
stitution, in 1787, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor
at the University of Edinburgh, had this to say about the fall of
the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior:
* "A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot
exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will con-
tinue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they
can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury.
From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candi-
dates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury,
with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to
loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship."
* "The average age of the worlds greatest civilizations from the
beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those
200 years, these nations always progressed through the follow-
ing sequence:
From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great
courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from
abundance to complacency; from complacency to apathy; from
apathy to dependence; from dependence back into bondage .
* Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law,
St. Paul, MN, points out some interesting facts concerning the
2000 presidential election: population of counties won by: Gore:
127 million; Bush: 143 million; square miles of land won by:
Gore: 580,000; Bush: 2,427,000 states won by: Gore: 19 Bush:
29 murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Gore:
13.2 Bush: 2.1
* Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory
Bush won was mostly the land owned by the tax-paying citi-
zens of this great country. Gore's territory mostly encompassed
those citizens living in government-owned tenements and liv-

Haddock to remain at Paxton


By Patrick Casey
Paxton teacher and coach
Herb Haddock will return
next season as head coach of
girls basketball and track.
Haddock had tentatively re-
signed the posts after a meet-
ing with Paxton principal
Mike Anderson on April 24.

Haddock, who has coached
at both Walton and Paxton
high schools over 20+ years,
has served as basketball
coach since Tommy Pittman


gave up the post in the late
1990s.
The Herald received a call
from a former player of Coach
Haddock's expressing con-
cern and dismay at his im-
pending departure while
questioning the timing of the
decision.
Paxton is unique among
county high schools in that
the athletic director position
is not an administrative po-
sition. The other three county
high schools traditionally see


the football coach share the
athletic director's job.
Haddock. currently serves
as the athletic director at
Paxton, a position which in-
cludes overseeing scheduling,
facilities, and eligibility of
student-athletes with the
Florida High School Athletic
Association.
A second meeting between
Haddock and Anderson on
May 1 resulted in an agree-
ment where Haddock will


give up the post of athletic di-
rector but remain as head
coach in girls basketball and
track. "They want to go in a
different direction with the
athletic director post," said
Haddock on Monday. "I will
keep coaching, though. We
work hard up here to be good
in athletics and I want to see
the program continue to be
successful. Paxton alumni are
very loyal and supportive
folks."


Walton baseball qualifies for playoffs


1' ~. 5' '"'


PAXTONS JOSH GOLDEN waits forjust the right pitch
from Central. The Bobcats went on to win, 5-0.
The Bobcats season ended last Thursday night when they
fell to Rocky Bayou 8-0.



Paxton baseball


earns playoff bid


By Patrick Casey
Colby Forehand tossed a 7-
hit shutout to propel the Pax-
ton Bobcats into the Class A
state baseball playoffs as
Paxton ended Central's sea-
son with a 5-0 win over the
Jaguars in Niceville at the
Okaloosa-Walton baseball
complex.
Paxton needed a victory to
avenge last season's 4-3 loss
to Central in the district.
semifinal that kept the Bob-
cats from qualifying for a
state berth. The win was es-
pecially sweet for Paxton
Head Coach Jeff Bradley as
his young squad executed
well in the field. Drew
Geoghagan turned a key 5-2-
3 double play in the bottom
of the second inning that kept
the Jaguars from scoring in
a bases loaded no-out situa-
tion. Bobcats catcher Josh
Golden added a sliding catch'
of a popup in foul territory to
thwart Central's best scoring
effort of the game.
Paxton took advantage of
Central pitcher Paul Bag-
gett's wildness and catcher
Brandon Hoyt's inability to
block the plate to the tune of
five combined wild pitches
and passed balls to score five
runs on only five hits. Paxton
held a 3-0 lead after thrpc
innings of play due to smart
base-running and timely
fielding. Brantley Taylor had
two, hits to lead the Bobcats
attack.
Forehand needed only 82


pitches to shutout the Jag-
uars. Central stranded ten
runners on the night and had
scoring opportunities in every
inning except the sixth. Fore-
hand, the freshman right-
handed pitcher, allowed only
one walk while striking out
two batters in going the dis-
.tance.
Paxton was not able to
work the same magic on
Rocky Bayou in the District
1, Class A championship
game. George Cook pitched a
two-hitter as the Knights
shutout Paxton 8-0 in the dis-
trict finale..
Six Paxton errors led to an
early deficit and the Bobcats'
inability to hit the ball effec-
tively ended their chance at
a comeback as they dug a hole
early from which they could
not recover. "We couldn't get
anything going against Rocky
as we did against Central,"
Bradley said after the game.
"We hurt ourselves with mis-
takes, but we know we have
at least one more game to
play and we'll see what hap-
pens in Graceville."

The loss was the third of
the season to Rocky Bayou for
the Bobcats. As the district
runner-up, Paxton(15-8) will
open the state playoffs on the
road against District 2 cham-
pion Graceville. Information
from that contest, which was
played on Tuesday, .May 2,
was not available as the Her-
ald went to press.


By Patrick Casey
The Walton Braves base-
ball team scored three runs
over the final two innings of
their District 1, Class 3A
baseball semifinal to knock
off the Northview Chiefs 4-2
and earn their first trip to the
state baseball playoffs since
1999.
Walton trailed the host
school 2-1 entering the top of
the sixth inning only to tie the
game with a two-out rally
that saw starting pitcher
Jonathan Thomas and short-
stop Matt Carter draw a pair
of walks to put runners on
base. Left-handed pinch hit-
ter Carl Douglass then
stroked an RBI single to left-
centerfield to drive in the ty-
ing run.
Walton had more two-out
magic left in their bats in the
top of the seventh inning as
Steven Foreman drew a walk,
stole second, and moved to
third on a wild pitch. Senior
centerfielder Jared Nelson
singled him in to give Walton
a 3-2 lead. Freshman Isaac
Jackson followed with an RBI
double to give Walton a 4-2
lead heading to the bottom of


By CHUCK HINSON
After an impressive 21-5
season and one of the best
year s in the'school's softball
history under coach Stan
Bosenberg, the Lady Braves
saw a close to their year
when they lost on Tuesday
night to Marianna in the
Class 3A regional
quarterfinals, 10-2.
The Lady Bulldogs kicked
the game into high gear early
when they brought four runs
in before the end of the sec-
ond inning. Walton was able
to get two runs in the top of
the second.
Jill Mathis was the win-
ning pitcher for the Bulldogs.
Christie Wickersham took
the loss for the Braves.


the seventh.
Matt Carter relieved Tho-
mas in the final frame to try
and close out the contest.
Thomas, who had pitched the
first six innings of the game,
allowed only four hits and two
earned runs in keeping Wal-
ton in the game. A pair of
walks and an error loaded the
bases for the Chiefs, but
Carter settled down and
struck out the final two bat-
ters in the game to salt away
the win and a playoff berth
for the Braves.
Walton played Pensacola
Catholic in the championship
game, but couldn't put
enough runs on the board to
pull out the contest. The Cru-
saders captured a 3-1 win,
sending Walton(10-15) on the
road to Chipley for their
opening round Class 3A state
baseball playoff game. De-
tails of the Walton-Chipley
contest were not available at
press time.
First year head coach
Terry Cadenhead was
pleased with the win over
Northview. "Playoff baseball
is always exciting, and any-
thing can happen. Thomas


Senior Sarah King went 2-
for-3 for Walton.
Marianna capped off the
lead when they brought in
five more runs in the bottom
of the sixth.
Scores per inning:
WHS 0 2 0 0 0 0 0 2
MHS 2 2 0 1 0 5 X 10


pitched a solid game, then
made an outstanding play in
the field to get the first out of
the seventh inning. We
turned it over to our senior
(Carter) to get the last three
outs and he got the job done."
Walton will try to earn
their first baseball playoffvic-


tory since 1965. Should Wal-
ton defeat Chipley they would
play a second round baseball
contest on Friday, May 5,
likely on the road.

Rushing announced the addi-
tion of Jordan McCormick to
DSU's 2006-2007 Lady
Statesmen basketball team.
McCormick comes to DSU
from Pontotoc High School,

reer helped lead her team to
the Division 1-4A Champion-
ship.
In 2005-2006, McCormick
was named to the Clarion
Ledger Top 40 Seniors to
watch list and she was a
Wendy's High School
Heisman nominee. This sea-
son McCormick averaged 14
points, six rebounds and four
assists for PHS. She was
named to the Northeast Mis-
sissippi Daily Journal's Sec-
ond Team All-Area squad.
"We are extremely pleased
to bring in Jordan to our pro-
gram," said Rushing. "She
has the ability to become a
truly outstanding player and
I look forward to her joining
us this summer."

Mascot

controversy

again in
headlines
By CHUCK HINSON
It happened to Florida
State, the Atlanta Braves,
the Kansas City Chiefs and
this time, North Dakota and
Central Michigan. Being
able to use a tribal Indians
name as a mascot is still not
being allowed by the NCAA.
Despite support by the
Sioux Indian tribe in North
Dakota in support of the
North Dakota school, the
NCAA shot down their bid as
well as Illinois and Indiana
University, to be able to use
the Indian nicknames. The
governing body rejected bids
from all three schools.
The NCAA allowed Florida
State, Central Michigan and
Utah to keep their names if-
ter several letters of support
were sent to the NCAA board
in behalf of the schools, stat-
ing that the individual tribes
were in support of the schools
using their names and the
"Indian" as a mascot.
But since those actions
three years ago, the NCAA


board of governors has sent
a message that they will not
retreat from their policy of
banning the use of "hostile"
and "abusive" Indian nick-
names, mascots and imagery
at championship events.
Many have questioned why
just at championship events
and not throughout the en-
tire season.
There has been no word
concerning actions the indi-
vidual schools might take
against the latest ruling of
the NCAA.

Johnson wins NBA

Coach of the Year


By CHUCK HINSON
His career started off in the
spotlight as Avery Johnson
played years ago as a point
gaurd. Fans, players and
club owners knew then that
he could make for a great
NBA head coach.
On April 25, he was given
the highest honor bestowed
upon a coach and was given
the honor after only being
with the Dallas Mavericks
for one season.
Maverick's owner Mark
Cuban said he remembered
talking to Johnson more than
two years ago and tried to
convince him to step down as
a player and become a top-
ranked assistant and even-
tual successor to Don Nelson.
Freinds and players of
Johnson said he has always
felt more like a coach and
leader, than he did like a
player.
He retired as a player from
the Maverick team to become


an assistant coach prior to
the 2004-05 season. After
taking over the reins as head
coach when Nelson retired on
March 19, 2005, he reached
50 wins faster than any other
coach, in history.
Those 50 games were out
of only 62 played in the 2005-
06 season.
Johnson was also the first
coach in league history to win
66 of his first 82 games. His
overall record 76-24 and he
coached the Western Confer-
ence All-Star team this sea-
son, which was also an honor
for a coach in just his first
season.
He received 63 first-place
votes from the panel of 124
sports writers and broadcast-
ers. Johnson had 419 points,
172 more than Phoenix head
coach Mike D' Antoni, last
year's winner who racked up
only 27 overall first place
votes.

Former Chipley basketball
player Marcus Yeager has
signed to play for the Univer-
sity of Mobile, a NAIA school.
Yeager, who played last year
for OWC, averaged 8.8 points
per game for the Raiders as a
sophomore.
The Class A state track
meet was held last Friday at
Jacksonville Wolfson High
School. South Walton's girls
finished 4th in the overall
team ranking while the
South Walton boys finished
13th. The Paxton girls fin-
ished in 12th place as a team,
despite competing in only a
couple of events. Erica and
Elena Trejo led the way for
the Seahawks' girls while
Tareisa Reese finished 3rd in
the shotput for Paxton. Allex
McCormick finished 2nd in
the discus throw with Keosha
Lynn finishing 3rd and
Sherry Henderson 5th in that
event. Though no individual
or team state titles were cap-
tured by our local athletes, it
was a strong performance for
those who qualified. The ma-
jority of the qualifiers
were underclassmen that will
have a chance to return next
year.
FSU basketball player
Alexander Johnson has con-
firmed that he will not return
to play basketball in Talla-
hassee next season. Johnson
has chosen to enter the NBA
draft. Teammate Al Thornton
will not enter the draft and
does plan to continue his ca-
reer at FSU next season.
The FSU baseball team
won two of three games over
the weekend against Savan-
nah State to raise the squad's
record to 35-11. The Semi-
noles will travel to Wake For-
est this weekend to resume
ACC play.
Georgia swept Florida in
baseball in Gainesville over
the weekend to drop the


Gators record to 24-23 on the
season and a paltry 6-15 in
SEC play. The Gators, who
were the national runner-up
last season, are in danger of
not qualifying for the SEC
tournament as well as the
NCAA tourney if they finish
below .500.
OWC softball coach
Michelle Krassinger will not
return next season. The Lady
Raiders finished 4-14 in Pan-
handle Conference play this
year and haven't won the con-
ference crown since 2000.
Krassinger is only the second
coach in the team's history
and compiled a 355-188
record.

Freeport's baseball season
did not end well as the Bull-
dogs got hammered at Jay 18-
1. The loss ended Freeport's
season at 7-12.
The Ponce de Leon softball


team was unable to parlay
the District 1 championship
into a long run in the state
playoffs as #10-ranked Baker
chomped the Pirates 12-1.
The contest had been delayed
for two days due to rain.
Baker's run in the playoffs
was short-lived as #2-ranked
Wewahitchka sent them
home with a 4-2 win the next
afternoon. Wewahitchka may
have the best chance at bring-
ing home a state softball title
of any Region 1 team.
The PDL boys baseball
team qualified for the playoffs
after a 5-3 win over Panama
City Bozeman last week. PDL
fell to Vernon in the District
2 championship game for the
third time this season, mean-
ing the Pirates must travel to
Jay for their opening baseball
playoff game. PDL(18-7) is 0-
4 in state playoff baseball
contests.

Walton officials


miss First Amend-


ment seminar


By Leigh Strickland
The First Amendment
Foundation's Barbara
Petersen hosted a seminar
last Thursday on Florida's
open government and public
records laws. The event,
sponsored by the Walton
County Taxpayers' Associa-
tion, was held at the Coastal
Branch Library in Santa
Rosa Beach.
Called the Sunshiie Law,
Florida's open government
law allows the public access
to any meeting that iiivolves
two or more government of-
ficials if they are discussing
public business or taking any
action in the public's behalf.
This applies to local govern-
ments as well as state agen-
cies.
These are meetings,
Petersen said, wNhere gvern-
ment officials make dbisions
that impact our lives.
Meetings of the Florida
legislature are only slightly
less accessible, as they re-
quire three or more members
to be involved before the
meetings are open to the pub-
lic.
Florida is unique,
Petersen said, in that its Con-
stitution provides access for
everyone to the records of all
three branches of its govern-
ment.

There are three basic re-
quirements under the Sun-
shine Law, she said.


First, any meeting of a
public agency must be open
to the public. A meeting is
being held any time two or
more members of the same
body discusses any issue re-
latirig to that body. An agency
is any public or private en-
tity doing business in behalf
of the government.
This includes public agen-
cies, state agencies, local gov-
ernments, school boards, and
others.
Private companies doing
business on behalf of a gov-
ernment agency are also cov-
ered if they have been del-
egated governmental author-
ity or duty. A private com-
pany, for example, that oper-
ates a jail for a government
agency, is subject to the Sun-
shine Law.
i Advisory boards and com-
mittees may also be subject
to the Sunshine Law, but this
is based on the function of
such a board or committee
and not its composition.
SA single person acting on
behalf of a board or commis-
sion falls under the Sunshine
Law as well.
Most federal agencies are
not bound by the law, but
they will submit to it if two
or more members of a Florida
agency are involved. For in-
stance, if two Walton County
Commissioners met with a
congressman or federal offi-

restoration in general in the
state of Florida.
One consideration is
whether eminent domain
proceedings are to be a re-
quirement for large-scale
beach restoration on private
property deeded to the water.
A First District Court of
Appeal's April 28 decision
rendered invalid the Joint
Coastal Permit obtained by
Walton County and Destin in
connection with the $22 mil-
lion beach restoration
project.
The court concluded that
the project proponents had
not furnished "satisfactory
evidence of sufficient upland
interest" to meet statutory
requirements in connection
with their permit applica-
tion.
The decision resulted from
an appeal by two local not-
for-profit organizations, Stop
the Beach Renourishment,
Inc. and Save Our Beaches,
Inc. The organizations had
filed an administrative chal-
lenge in response to the
state's original notice of in-
tent to permit the seven-
mile-long restoration project.

Fire district board selects contractor


By Leah Stratmann
The regular monthly
meeting of the South Walton
Fire District revealed assets
in excess of $5 million dollars
and a decision on a contrac-
tor after a request for propos-
als was issued for the con-
struction of a new building.
The building, a general-
purpose facility intended for
use as a training facility, a
dispatch center, and storage
utility building will be built
as a two-story structure with
a four-story training tower on
one end.
Dalton Brothers Con-
struction, DAG Architects,
CRA Design in Tallahassee
and Design Builders pro-
vided proposals. It was the
consensus of the RFP com-


mittee that Dalton Brothers
provided the best proposal.
"I like the idea that they
are right down the street,"
commented commissioner
Bill Fowler.
Fire Chief Les Hallman
explained the decision to in-
clude the towers was because
"fire personnel now have to
go into Fort Walton Beach to
train on ladder work and
rappelling. The four-story
structure will allow us to
train here."
The new building will sit
behind the SWFD building
on CR-393. Hallman said the
design would provide the
space needed now with the
capability of expanding to
four stories in the future at
the least cost. "We are sup-


posed to build something
that will last the community
50 years," Hallman said. "I
think this will do it." The
building will also be built to
withstand winds of 200 miles
per hour.
While hard numbers can-
not be arrived at until dis-
trict officials sit down with
the contractor, the estimated
cost of construction is $1.5
million.
Citizen Tom McGee com-
mented "the money will be
well spent today to serve the
community in the future. It
never hurts to prepare for
growth," he said.
Commissioner Harry
Millsaps made a motion to
give the contract to Dalton,
which was seconded by com-


missioner Tom Cooper and
passed unanimously.
In the month of April, the
SWFD responded to 60 false
alarms in high-rise buildings
in the county. Commissioner
Cooper noted many of the
false alarms are for one or
two structures "over and over
again. Generally these false
alarms are generated by an
alarm malfunction and prop-
erty managers do not follow
up on malfunctions. I think
something needs to be done
.to penalize these managers,"
,he said. "High-rise false
alarms are very time con-
suming," he commented.
Hallman agreed saying

Walton County takes up affordable housing issues


By Leah Stratmann
Walton County govern-
ment officials were very
much in evidence during a
press conference last week
when the Walton County
Chamber of Commerce un-
veiled a workforce housing
survey they hope will blan-
ket the county and answer a
lot of questions about income,
housing, and mass transpor-
tation. In addition to county
Planning Director Pat
Blackshear, County Commis-
sioner--Rosier Cuchens,
County Finance Director Bill
Imfeld, and Citizen Services
Director Ken Little all at-
tended the press conference.
The survey comprises 28
questions in both English
and Spanish.
Seaside CEO Rick Sever-
ance said he "looks forward


to a regional collaboration
with neighboring counties in
solving housing problems.
This is only the beginning,"
he emphasized. "We need to
take small steps so as to have
small milestones to cel-
ebrate. We value participa-
tion by the entire county and
I encourage employers to
stuff pay envelopes with the
survey and do whatever else
may be needed to ensure
employee participation."
Severance encouraged all
employees to have employees
fill out the surve,, which
can be returned t, ae Wal-
ton County Chamber offices
or either of the Publix loca-
tions in Walton County. The
surveys need to be returned
by May 26.
The questionnaire can
also be completed online or


downloaded at
www.waltoncountychamber.com
and copied as needed. Com-
pleted questionnaires will be
tabulated and an indepen-
dent report issued by the
Haas Center at the Univer-
sity of West Florida.
Speaking for the county,
Blackshear said she was ex-
cited to see the county
partnering with the Walton
Chamber in the effort. "We
are trying to get some relief
for affordable housing as it
affects traffic concurrency
and use all the tools available
to expedite'affordable hous-
ing projects."
Blackshear emphasized
the proportional fair share
amendment can add as much
as $1 million to a project
which might change a project
from affordable to non-af-


fordable.
Building codes create an-
other level of difficulty for
builders in that there is no
circumventing the codes. "A
small 1,500 square foot
home's cost can be increased
by $40,000 just to meet wind
codes," Blackshear said.
The problem of affordable
housing affects not only
those in lower paying jobs,
but also those professionals
with better than average
salaries who still cannot af-
ford to purchase or rent a
home. "When young profes-
sionals cannot find housing,
it increases recruiting prob-
lems," she said.
Severance, Blackshear
and chamber CEO Dawn
Moliterno all skirted the di-
rect question of what was
considered affordable hous-

Gopher Tortoise protection meeting draws large crowd


By Leah Stratmann
There was almost a full
house gathered in the meet-
ing room of the Coastal
Branch Library last week to
hear a noted biologist speak
on the subject of gopher tor-
toise protection.
Dr. Matthew J. Aresco, a bi-
ologist and direction of con-
servation at Nokuse Planta-
tion, the 53,000 acre nature
preserve and wildlife corridor
established by owner M.C.
Davis several years ago, east
of Freeport.
"If we don't save this spe-
cies, we won't save anything,"
Davis said in opening re-
marks at the meeting. Davis
has worked out an agreement
with Walton County to move
a colony of 50 gopher tortoises
living near the ongoing con-
struction of a new county jail
site in DeFuniak Springs.
While many may question
why it is important, biologist
Aresco has no shortage of
answers.
"I fell in love with them
after seeing my first one 12
years ago," Aresco said.
'These are long-lived reptiles,
which causes some con-
straints in their ability to re-
produce, because it takes so
long for a gopher tortoise to
mature enough to lay eggs. It
is hard for a population to
recover when you lose very
many adult tortoises" he said.
"There are many features
making them different from
turtles, but the primary one
is that are a keystone species
whose burrows of eight to 10
feet are used by more than
300 other species of animals
as a place to feed, and which
provide shelter from weather
and fire. They are herbivores

The regular monthly meet-
ing of the South Walton Fire

cess of $5 million dollars and

sity in plant life. They live in
scrub and long-leaf pine. The
Florida Panhandle is the
heart of the gopher tortoise
range," he said.
Aresco said the sedentary
gopher tortoise has a life span
of 60 to 70 years of age. They
are typically about 14 inches
in diameter and feature huge
shovel-like arms, which are
used for defense and burrow-
ing. It takes about 20 years
for a young gopher tortoise to
mature to the egg laying
stage of life. Many eggs that
are laid are lost to raccoons
and foxes. Adult females will
also often skip a year and pro-
duce no eggs, which further
complicates the slow
repopulation of the species.
Each female will lay four to
seven eggs, known as a
clutch.
"The burrows provide shel-
ter for vertebrates and inver-
tebrates, Aresco said. "Box
turtles will often use aban-
doned tortoise burrows for
shelter," he commented.
Recently the Florida Fish
-WA W:1 u


Millsaps made a motion to
give the contract to Dalton,
which was seconded by com-
missioner Tom Cooper and
passed unanimously.
In the month of April, the
SWFD responded to 60 false
alarms in high-rise buildings
in the county. Commissioner
Cooper noted many of the
false alarms are for one or
two structures "over and over
again. Generally these false
alarms are generated by an
alarm malfunction and prop-
erty managers do not follow
up on malfunctions. I think
something needs to be done
to penalize these managers,"
he said. "High-rise false
alarms are very time consum-
ing," he commented.
Hallman agreed saying
"qualified alarm inspectors
look at all alarms annually.
When an alarm goes off, it
triggers the monitoring com-
pany, which in turn notified
the fire department. There
are strict parameters on what
constitutes a false alarm," he
said.
"We need to look at some-
thing to penalize those doing
it," Cooper said, "something
like an ordinance. I want to
see the people in these build-


and Wildlife Conservation
Commission named the go-
pher tortoise a species of spe-
cial concern due to an 80 per-
cent range-wide decline in
population in the last 100
years. Aresco pointed out that
many gopher tortoises were
harvested for meat for many
years and it wasn't until 1988
that harvesting for meat was
banned by the state. Aresco
said there is a need to peti-
tion the U.S. Forest Service to
list the gopher tortoise as a
federally threatened species.

In times of high tortoise
density, there might be as
many as three burrows per
acre, but Aresco said density
is well below that now. "There
is no estimate of how many
tortoises were harvested and
how many have been lost due
to habitat degradation and
change. The numbers con-
tinue to decline due to road:
kill and development.
Developers have an option
of killing turtles found in de-
velopment sites and paying

animals.


ings take some responsibility
for these alarms."
Hallman noted most ordi-
nances of this type call for a
"three strikes and you're out"
clause, meaning that after
three calls to the same loca-
tion, building owners are
charged for fire department
calls. The current charge is
$150 per hour. Hallman said
he would bring some draft
ordinances on this issue to
the next meeting for the com-
missioners to look over.
The final piece of business
concerned the moving of
SWFD emergency dispatch-
ers physically-to the south
end of the county. Commis-
sion chairman Maurice Gil-
bert and Hallman recently
met with county administra-
tor Ronnie Bell and county
commissioner Scott Brannon.
Hallman said the two men
agreed "in principal" to the
proposal, but wanted more
time to think about the issue.
Commissioner Cooper said
he didn't understand the de-
lay. "They (county officials)
can't deny us our phone calls,
so they (the dispatchers)
would be doing the same
thing in our big room as they
do now in the little room."

the state for future tortoise
protection. "More than 80,000
gopher tortoises have been
killed in the last 14 years
from this incidental take,"
Aresco said. "The money from
the incidental take has
bought only 9700 acres. Miti-
gation is not working. We are
trading viable tortoise land
for land where there may not
be any tortoises. Northwest
Florida has a lot of conserva-
tion land suitable for tor-
toises. Walton County would
have spent $170,000 to use
the incidental take option to
account for the 50 gopher tor-
toises on the land being de-
veloped for the jail."
The tortoises will be moved
to Nokuse as soon as all the
permits are provided. One of
the initial permit will provide
for a total of 220 tortoises and
is a research permit to see
how well the tortoises adapt
to being moved, Aresco noted.
"Relocations can work. We
can use erosion control fences
and start burrows for the tor-
toises," he said. "This will en-
close them and after six to
eight months each tortoise
will be radio equipped to see
how they move around the
area."
Davis said, "We want this
to be a paradigm for the
world, but at the least it will
be a local victory. We expect
Nokuse to be a national cen-
ter for biologists."
Both men claimed local
laws regarding tortoises have
not been enforced in the Pan-
handle and that statewide
authorities have ignored the
Panhandle altogether.
"In 10 counties, we have
accounted for only 25 tor-
toises in 12 years," Davis said.
"We need to form an activist
group to report where tor-
toises are found, If we lose
this species, we lose a lot of
others. We need to find a way
to reward the ethical consult-
ants who report tortoise find-
ings and operate with integ-
rity an dput TaUahasisee4ion
notice we are go6ig to see td


it that gopher tortoise protec-
tion is enforced. It is going to
take the carrot and the stick,
but if we can prove to the pub-


lic that we can save the spe-
cies and why it is important,
we can teach youngsters to
fall in love with nature."

Water Use Tips


and Statistics



Install aerators on \our kitchen and bathroom faucets to
reduce indoor water use. Aerators mix air with the water.
creating a flow that is still forceful but that uses far fewer
gallons per minute.

Dishwasher manufacturers now offer high-efficiency
dishwasher models. These dishwashers use less water
and energy. A high-efficiency dishwasher can wash a load
of dishes using 5 to 7 gallons of water.

Repairing dripping faucets and leaky toilets. Dripping
faucets can waste about 2,000 gallons of water each year.
Leaky toilets can waste as much as 200 gallons of \ ater
each day.

By installing more efficient water fixtures and regularly
checking for leaks, households can reduce daily water use
by about 35%.

If all U.S. households installed water-saving features.
water use would decrease by 30%. saving an estimated
5.4 billion gallons of water per day. This would result in
a saving of 11.3 million dollars per day.

Households on average use 350 gallons of water per day.

In 2000, the highest water consuming states withdrew:
California 51,200 million gallons per day (mgd);
Texas- 29.600 mgd: and Florida 20,100 mgd.
In comparison, the lowest water consuming states withdrew:
Alaska 305 mgd: Rhode Island 429:
and Vermont 447 mgd.

South Walton's Potter

creates endowment

for nursing scholarship


If you lived or visited South
Walton County in the past
three or four decades, it's a
good bet you've crossed paths
with Pat Potter. Over the
years as a chamber execu-
tive, real estate office man-
ager, and an assortment of
other duties, Potter always
had the pulse of the commu-
nity.
"I guess I'd have to say it's
been a great ride that's still
going," said the out-going
Potter. "I just enjoy working
and being around people. I
like being part of things that
are positive, that improve
things and that make a dif-
.ference."
The effervescent Potter, a
Georgia native who "stays on
the go to stay healthy" split-
ting time at her home in
Dune Allen Beach and a
north Georgia mountain
cabin, has made a major gift
to the Okaloosa-Walton Col-
lege Foundation to create the
Patricia Potter Family Nurs-
ing Scholarship Endowment.
"Let's face it," said Potter
with her grandmotherly grin,
"I'm not getting any younger
and after a couple of hip sur-
geries I became well ac-
quainted with the problem of
hospitals not having enough
nurses."


An OWC Foundation
emeritus board member, Pot-
ter said the growth of the
OWC Registered Nursing
program and the fact there
were not enough scholar-
ships to go around keyed her
decision to establish the
nursing scholarship. "Some-
times I feel like I've been part
of the college since it started
40 years ago," she said. "It is
such a great place that has
done so much for the commu-
nity and helped so many stu-
dents improve their lives."
"I'm sure most.people
think the responsibility for
funding community colleges
belongs to the state," said,
Potter. "Well, state taxes pay
for a little more than a third
and the rest falls back on tu-
ition from students. I hope by
doing this scholarship I
might'be teaching others how
to give. We've got to sustain
the momentum this college
has going."

OWC president Dr. Bob
Richburg praised Potter not
just for her contribution "but
for being a doer, not stand-
ing still and for encouraging
others. Pat Potter is one of
those influential people who
doesn't know she's influen-
tial. She's always been so


PAT POTTER (center) presents her scholarship donation

Foundation Director, and Jim Chitwood, OWC Foundation
Executive Director (left).


knowledgeable about
people."
Richburg called Potter "an
ambassador for OW" as long
as he's been at the college.
"The Potter Family Nursing
Scholarship fills a vital need
as the college expands the
Registered Nursing program
and grows the nursing
bachelor's degree program,"
said Richburg, who also
thanked foundation board
member Al Donaldson for
working with Pat Potter to
create the scholarship. He


added that her $12,000 gift
will be matched by state
funds to endow the scholar-
ship. "But," added Richburg.
"Pat Potter already is perma-
nently part of OW."
Endowed'scholarships uti-
lize the interest income gen-
erated by the gift to perpetu-
ally fund annual full-tuition
scholarships for students to
attend Okaloosa-Walton Col-
lege. Scholarships can be
named in memory or in honor
of an individual, group or
business.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, MAY 4, 2006


Roll Call




Walton County Board of County Commissioners
April 25 regular meeting

A yes vote was to approve the proposal.

Proposal by Assistant County Administrator Shirl Williams
for approval of $237,168.48 yearly contract for maintenance of the
26-mile south Walton County bike paths plus grounds maintenance
of the South Walton Governmental and Educational Center (GEC)
property, with the 25 percent providing for the grounds maintenance
funded through the county budget and the 75 percent providing for
the bike path maintenance coming from District 1 and District 5
recreational plat fees.
A motion for approval by Meadows carried in a four-to-
one vote: Brannon-yes; Jones-yes; Meadows-yes; Pridgen-yes;
Cuchens-no.

Request by Sonny Mares of the South Walton Tourist De-
velopment Council (TDC) to renew contract for sea turtle moni-
toring services as required in connection with the western Walton
County beach restoration project and other beach construction
projects at a cost of $80,000 for one year, that amount to be funded
through TDC bed tax revenues.
A motion for approval carried unanimously.

Additional request by Mares for approval of contract for tasks
required to determine project areas and design for restoration of
central and eastern portions of Walton County beachfront, includ-
ing updated risk analysis, project prioritization and preliminary

Seminar
From Front

cial.
The second requirement of
the law is that reasonable
notice of these meetings must
be given. Reasonable notice
must be sufficient to inform
those who may be interested
in attending and must be rea-
sonable in content, timing,
and placement.
An exact agen4i 6es not
have to be provided. but a rea-
sonable amount of informa-
tion about what is to be dis-
cussed should be givef' No-
tice should be placed where
the most people wJil'ave ac-
cess to it and sholid6e given
far enough in advance.
Officials cannot discuss is-
sues of the government with-
out notice to the public. While
government officials are free
to socialize with one another,
the public should also feel
free to approach and ask
them what they are discuss-
ing, said Petersen.
The third requirement un-
der law is that minutes must
be taken. While these do not
have to be transcribed or ap-
proved, they must accurately
reflect the meeting. These
minutes become public record
at the conclusion of the meet-
ing ..
According to Petersen, the
biggest and most common
complaint about violating the
Sunshine Law involves pub-
lic participation at meetings.
She said that according to
Florida's Supreme Court, the
public has the fundamental
right to be present and heard
at public meetings.
"These people represent
us," she said. "How do they
know what we think if they
don't let us speak?"
Government agencies can
adopt reasonable rules re-
quiring orderly conduct and
the orderly progression of the
meetings, but these rules
must be uniformly applied
and speaker neutral.
As to the location of gov-
ernment meetings, these can-
not be held at any facility
which discriminates based on
age, race, sex, religion, or
other such factors. They can-
not unreasonably restrict
public access. If meetings
take place in a gated area,
like a subdivision or on a mili-
tary base, the gates must be
up and the public must feel
free to attend. Meetings must
also be held in a facility that
is large enough to accommo-
date the anticipated turnout.
Petersen pointed out that
there are 1,041 statutory ex-
emptions to the Sunshine
Law. These exemptions can
only be created by Florida's
legislature. If ever denied ac-
cess to a meeting, a person
can demand to know which
exemption authorizes the de-
nial.


One example of an exemp-
tion is that which allows for
the closure of any part of a
government meeting that
would reveal information re-
garding the physical security
of the facility or security sys-
tems.
An example of an often
abused exemption, Petersen
said, is the litigation exemp-
tion. Under this, access to the
public is restricted only in
very specific ways.
This exemption applies
only to pending litigation that
the public agency is a part of.
The agency's attorney must
notify the agency at a public
meeting. Attendance is
strictly limited and subject
matter is limited to discus-
sion of settlement negotia-
tions or strategy. Action is
prohibited and the meeting
must be recorded by a court
reporter. A transcript of the
meeting becomes a public
record at the conclusion of the
litigation.
If any of these things are
violated, the exemption is lost
and the transcript becomes
available immediately.
Unintentional violation of
the Sunshine Law is consid-
ered a non-criminal infrac-
tion punishable by a fine up
to $500 while a knowing vio-
lation is a second degree mis-
demeanor punishable by a
fine of not more than $500
and/or a jail term of not more
than 60 days. A person may
also be suspended or removed
from office and they must pay
all attorney's fees and court
costs.
If an action is taken at a
meeting and it violates the
Sunshine Law, the action is
voided as though it never
happened and can then be
cured by a special meeting.
Anyone can file a Sunshine
Law violation, including pri-
vate citizens, newspapers,
and members of an agency.
In the second part of the
seminar, Petersen discussed
Florida's public records law.
Florida, she said, has a
long, rich tradition of public
records. Everybody has the
right to access public records
in some meaningful form.
Public records include all
materials related to public
officials. This may even in-
clude, Petersen said, voice
mail, email, and junk mail.
All public records are pre-
sumed to be open unless
there is a specific statutory
exemption. Only the legisla-
ture can create an exemption
to the right of access.
If a person's request for
access to a public record is
denied, he or she may de-
mand the denial be put in
writing and they may de-
mand to know the exact
statutory citation authorizing
the denial.
Only a few situations are
exempt. They involve such


a kiosk; stormwater management; 12 classes per year at the recre-
ation center; and a parking lot with bike rack.
The motion was approved -unanimously.

Proposal by Brannon for resolution in support of traffic
lights at U.S. 331 and Bruce Avenue and Hwy. 90 and Twentieth
Street.
A motion for approval carried unanimously.

Proposal by David R. Thomas for abandonment of 30 feet
of a public right-of-way south of Casa Grande Lane in the Hewitt
Point area of south Walton, lying along the west boundary of lots
56, 57, 58 and 59 in the Santa Rosa Plantation Company subdivi-
sion. Attached to the proposal was an agreement for the applicant
to provide in exchange for the abandonment, property to create a
new north-south corridor for the public.
A motion for approval by. Cuchens carried unanimously.

Proposal by BEP L.L.C. and Connelly & Wicker for the
Wilderness at Black Creek Conceptual PUD, a project consist-
ing of 720 single-family lots, 20 multi-family units, 40,000 square
feet of commercial area, and a marina with 50 boat dry storage units
on a 1,453-acre parcel north of CR-3280 approximately 8 miles east
of U.S. 331.
The proposal was approved unanimously.

Proposal by Peninsula Pointe, L.L.C. for approval of Penin-
sula Pointe, 14-single-family residential lots on a 3.79-acre parcel
on the south side of Lakewood Drive, east of Beachfront Trail. At-
tached to the proposed was a recommendation by the Coastal Dune
Lake Advisory Board (CDLAB) calling for 50-foot setbacks from Little
Deer Lake, which borders the property, with the exception of lots 4,
7, and 8 where 50 feet was not possible and 35 feet was recom-.
mended. The proposal as presented did not comply with the CDLAB
recommendations. Meadows recommended increasing setbacks to
50 feet on all lots but 4, 7 and 8, for which she proposed a 35-foot
setback from the lake. Her recommendation included variances from
standard 20-foot front setbacks as required to situate the homes on
the lots.

Meadows' motion for approval with the previously stated
conditions attached was approved unanimously.

Additional development proposals, approved unani-
mously: Serenity on the Bayou, 80 single-family lots on a 41.2-acre
parcel between LaGrange Road and West Bayou Forest Drive and
west of Mullet Drive; the Cottages at Bayou Forest, a 41-single-
family-lot subdivision on a 20.83-acre parcel along the north side of
East Bayou Forest Road, at the East Bayou Forest Road and Mullet
Drive intersection; McCall Park Village, a 20-lot single-family sub-
division on a 10.12-acre parcel on the west side of Moll Drive across
from Helen McCall Park; Seacroft Cottages PUD, a 20-lot single-


things as school,board per-
sonnel files, Social Security
numbers, and the names of
people in car crashes.
If a record is made up of
exempt and non-exempt in-
formation, the keeper of the
record must redact the ex-
empted information and pro-
vide access to the rest. The
agency may not charge for
this unless it requires exten-
sive use of the agency's re-
sources.

' Fees' miay' be'bir, crged for
public records. This may be 15
cents a page for paper copies
plus an additional five cents
for a two-sided copy. The ac-
tual cost of duplication, which
does not include labor or over-
head, may be charged in-
stead. A few agencies have
their own statutorily pre-
scribed fees.
Inspecting a record incurs
no fee, nor does copying a
record on your own equip-
ment.
Additional fees may be
charged for the extensive use
of an agencies resources. This
must be reasonable and
based on actual costs in-
curred. The base hourly rate
of the lowest paid person ca-
pable of doing the job is used.
Each agency should have
its own definition of "exten-
sive use" and a justification
for it.
A knowing violation of the
public records law is a first
degree misdemeanor punish-
able by a fine up to $1,000
and a jail term not exceeding
one year. Unintentional vio-
lations are non-criminal of-
fenses and are punishable by
a fine not exceeding $500. A
violator may also be removed
or suspended from office and
must pay attorney's and court'
fees.
In a recent statewide au-
dit of compliance with public
records law, Walton county
scored very poorly. It was one
of three counties in the state
to have six violations, the
highest number recorded in
the audit.
The reason for that poor
showing may have been re-
flected in the fact that only
one Walton County constitu-
tional officer and one county
commissioner's aide were
present at the seminar.
Also present was the attor-
ney for the cities of Freeport
and DeFuniak Springs.
The First Amendment
Foundation is a small, non-
profit, nonpartisan organiza-
tion. They publish a compre-
hensive guide to Florida's
Sunshine Law, as well as a
public records handbook. A
searchable database of ex-
emptions to the law is also
kept and a toll free number
for questions about open gov-
ernment and public records is
also available at 1-800-337-

concerned the moving of

Hallman said the two men

Commissioner Cooper said
he didn't understand the de-

properties, ,the project con-
tractor Great Lakes Dredge
and Dock Company elected to
"skip" those properties in the
restoration.
The STBR members' deeds
show ownership to the gulf.
The appellants argued
that the July 2005 final order
unconstitutionally applied a
portion of Florida Statutes
known as the Beach and
Shore Preservation Act. The
appeals court agreed that
"constitutionally protected
riparian rights have been de-
prived without just compen-
sation for the property
taken."
Riparian rights are de-
scribed in the ruling as vested
rights of waterfront property
owners which include access,
navigation, view of the water,
and the right to "accretion
and relictions (relinquish-
ments) to the property."
As is standard practice
with large-scale- restoration
projects in the state, prior to
the beginning of the project
an erosion control line (ECL)
was set in the project area by
the state at the location of the
mean high water line eleva-
tion. The function of this line
is to separate formerly sub-
merged state sovereignty
lands to be reclaimed through
restoration from the private
property of adjacent upland
property owners. Setting the
ECL is understood to fix prop-
erty ownership lines, negat-
ing the expansion of private
beachfront property by accre-
tion and its reduction by ero-
sion.
The appeals court agreed
with STBR's contention that
the July 2005 final order un-
constitutionally deprived the
members of their riparian
rights of accretion and relic-
tion and the right for their
property to remain in contact
with the gulf waters. There-
fore, the court stated, accord-
ing to statute "satisfactory
upland interest" must be
proved by the project propo-
nents.
The ruling of the July 2005
administrative hearing had
been that such proof of inter-
est was not necessary since
the project was being under-
taken by governmental enti-
ties in the public interest.


he or she may need to ensure that a
verbatim record of the proceedings
is made, which record includes the
testimony and evidence upon which
the appeal is to be based.

Please be advised accordingly.

(Walton County and Destin
do owna small number of
parcels adjacent and upland
to in theOproject area, but the
vast majority of such parcels
are privately o nwned. :
Last week's appeals court
decision concluded, "we re-
vergkMWDepartment's (state
Department of Environmen-
tal Protection) final order ap-
proving the Joint Coastal Per-
mit and Authorization to Use
Sovereign Submerged Lands.
We remand for the Depart-
ment to provide satisfactory
evidence of sufficient upland
interest..."
The court also quoted
Florida Statutes requiring
eminent domain proceedings
if the project "cannot reason-
ably be accomplished without
the taking of private prop-
erty."
However, a footnote states
that the court has not in fact
addressed whether eminent
domain proceedings will be
required or "what property
would be subject to the pro-
ceeding."
While negation of the per-
mit would have the effect of
the parties no longer being
authorized to conduct the res-
toration, the appeal court or-
der does not take effect, until
15 days'from its April 28 is-
suance Walton County and
Destin also have the option of
requesting a rehearing, and
the appeals court decision in-
dicates that the ruling is not
final until disposition of any
motion for rehearing.
The South Walton Tourist
Development Council is coor-
dinating and funding the
Walton County Portion of the
restoration project. TDC
spokesperson Tracy Louthain
said that the TDC and its le-
gal representatives found the
April 28 decision confusing as
to what action is required.
She anticipates that the par-
ties will file a motion for re-
hearing.
With restoration now 43
percent complete for the to-
tal project and 61 percent
complete for Walton County,
work continues to progress
west past the Costa del Sol
condominiums on Scenic Gulf
Drive. Construction is ex-
pected to be in the vicinity of
the Walton/Okaloosa County
line by the week of May 15.
Continually updated infor-
mation on the restoration
project is available on the web
site www.protcctwalton
