Freeport approves phase 1


construction plan for new park


By Ben Grafton
City Clerk Robin Haynes,
filling in for City Planner
Latilda Henninger who was
sick, opened the business
portion of the Freeport City
Council meeting of May 25 by
presenting the second read-
ing of an ordinance revising
the zoning of a 155.2 acre
parcel off of U.S. Hwy. 331
North to high density resi-
dential. The council approved
the ordinance.
City Engineer Charles Pe-
ters gave a summary report
of construction projects un-
derway beginning with the
Bay Loop sewer line which he
said was complete. Peters
went on to say that the Bay
Area sewer project was,
"...moving good..."
Peters said that phase two
of the Bay Area sewer project
was starting and that a deci-
sion had been reached to ac-
cept a Walton County condi-
tion'to overlay the whole
width of a stretch of road
where the line will be in-
stalled under the road bed
due to the lack of an ad-


equate right- of- way.
It was found this was fea-
sible because the cost was
well below engineering esti-
mates for the work.
Peters said the sewer line
design for the CR- 3280 por-
tion was near completion and
that the foundation work for
the new water tank is fin-
ished and that the tank erec-
tion crew will be scheduled
in soon.
Phase one of the side walk
project will also be scheduled,
soon. The route for phase two
of this project has been
changed and it will now Run
from the Freeport Library
west to the entrance to the
park and then possibly
through the park to Blue-
berry Road.
The council approved
Councilman Ray Jackson's
nomination of Ronnie
Brannon to serve on the
Freeport Planning Board.
Jack Rhodes, reporting as
chairman of the Freeport
Park Board, presented the
council an architectural
drawing showing two devel-


opment phases for the Ham-
mock Bay City Park.
Phase one will provide
parking, storm water control
and playing fields for t-ball,
soccer, and softball. He said
the softball fields will also ac-
commodate Little League
baseball play. A study is un-
derway to provide a water-
ing system for the playing
fields. A cost estimate for
phase one is being developed.
Rhodes complimented Wal-
ton County for its coopera-
tion and support. The board
is looking at concession
building plans used by Pax-
ton. for possible use here.
Rhodes also said that tempo-
rary practice fields will be
set up. The council approved
moving ahead with phase
one work and Mayor Mickey
Marse said, "...let's get the
children playing ball."
Consultant Bob Jones re-
viewed last year's unsuccess-
ful application for a Commu-
nity Development Block
Grant (CDBG). He pointed
out that communities that
have not received a grant in'


the last five years are given
a ten percent point score ad-
vantage in judging for
awards of current grants. He
noted that because of its past
participation, this will be-
come a disadvantage for
Freeport. He then said that
communities that already
had project planning in place
would receive a point incen-
tive and that Freeport could
qualify for this. The council
authorized development of
an application to be submit-
ted this year.
Jones also advised the
council to take a look at rec-
reation grants. He said Free-
port could apply for a
$200,000 grant without hav-
ing to provide matching
funds. Applications are due
in the fall.
The council approved a
resolution designating June
29 and 30 as Freeport Cham-
ber of Commerce apprecia-
.tion days.
After hearing reports that
the Freeport batting cages
are being very well received,
the meeting was adjourned'.

build more of


jail sooner


By Dotty Nist
After hearing reports that
the first phase of the new
Walton County Jail, how
under construction, was
likely to be full upon opening,
county commissioners
decided to go ahead with 584
total beds rather than just
the initially-planned 324
beds.
"I think it's the wise thing
to do,". said District 3
Commissioner Larry Jones
at the May 23 Walton County
Board of County
Commissioners meeting.
Walton County Sheriff
Ralph Johnson and. county
judges Kevin Wells and
David Green all spoke to the
need for more beds than had
been planned for the initial
construction of the facility,
which is now about half
complete. The new jail site is
located north of DeFuniak
Springs near the Walton
Correctional Institute.
Judge Wells reported that
population in the county has
increased and stands at
53,000 currently. The jail
population reached
approximately 290 at one.
point, he said. It was his
opinion that 330 beds would
probably not be sufficient to
accommodate the increase in
the number of incarcerated
persons expected to come
with future county growth,
Green agreed, commenting
that the jail population has
recently come so close to 300
that the number of beds
previously planned could
quite possibly be exceeded
"in just a few years."
Rick Millard, Walton
County construction
manager, told the
commissioners that going
ahead with the additional
beds would save taxpayers


$2 million or more as
compared with waiting a
year and a half, as had been
anticipated, to enlarge the
jail to that capacity. Millard
said construction costs are
going up one-and-a-half
percent per month, or 18
percent per year. He warned
that those costs could
increase even more in the
event of a hurricane or,
tropical storm hitting the
Gulf Coast.
Millard added that it is
costing the county $6,500 a
month to store the over $1
million worth of cell modules
purchased two years ago for
the future expansion of the
jail, a cost that would be
saved by going ahead and
setting the modules up at the
jail site. Millard estimated
that building the jail to the.
584-bed capacity would "take
care of us" for 10 to 15 years
into the future.
Capt. Danny Glidewell of
the Walton County Sheriffs
Department commented that
the expansion would also
create opportunity for the
county to receive payment for
the housing of federal:
inmates upon request at a;
rate of over $140 per day pern
prisoner. Millard estimated".
that "under ideal conditions" ;
the latter arrangement could:
pay for the expansion;
Jones motioned for
approval on the condition;
that the sheriff utilize the
first jail, "pod" first and not:
.begin situating inmates in
the expansion area until the
first area was full, in order
to conserve utility and
manpower expenses. The
motion was approved
unanimously.

Habitat for Humanity's ReStore to Open in Freeport


By Leah Stratmann
Just a few days prior to
the opening of Habitat for
Humanity's ReStore in Free-
port, store coordinator
Stefania Nuzzolo and direc-
tor Ronnie McBrayer were
expending copious quantities
of sweat equity getting the
facility ready.
McBrayer said the agency
has been thinking about
opening a store for about
three years, but finding a
building was difficult. "We
wanted to be centrally lo-
cated in the county and Free-
port was ideal. Without the
assistance of Judy Cham-
bers, who owns this property,
and without her generosity,
this would not have been pos-
sible," McBrayer said. The
2000-square foot store will of-
ficially open on June 1 with
grand opening ceremonies
later in the month.
"We will be taking dona-
tions of furniture and build-


ing supplies, things that
would ordinarily find their
way to a dump site, so we will
be recycling things like doors,
sinks and household furni-
ture," McBrayer noted.
Nuzzolo said the organiza-
tion can do some pick-ups
using a small van they have,
but if at all possible asks
those with donations to de-
liver to them. "Richard Liles
Interiors has been very good
to us. When he delivers new
items to his customers, he
brings the old items to us. He
is doing a service to them and
a great service to us," she
said. "I also want to recognize
Jenne Rowe from Artistic
Cabinetry. She was doing a
house and called al,, asked
if we were interested in tak-
ing the used items from the
house. This is just the kind
of donations we are looking
for."
For the most part, the
store will focus on big items.


The store will be open Thurs-
day through Saturday from
. 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday and
Wednesday will be reserved
for picking up donated items.
"We are not actively solic-
iting pots and pans and
kitchen items. We seek ce-
ramic tile, windows, and.
doors. We have a full set of
Anderson Windows coming
because a builder's client
changed his mind after or-
dering them. Habitat has
first dibs on building sup-
plies that can be used in a
Habitat home," McBrayer
noted. It should also be noted
that no clothing will be sold
or taken as donations. Those,
bringing these items will be
directed to other resale loca-
tions.
Although the store will
take donations of stoves and
refrigerators to sell, all Habi-
tat homes built in the United
States have new appliances
donated by the Whirlpool


Corporation.
Nuzzolo said the need for
a box truck is great. "We
would like to partner with
any organization that owns
a box truck they don't use
daily. We would love to share
expenses with them, as it
would allow us to pick up
larger items than we can in
a van," she noted..
McBrayer and Nuzzolo
have been working on getting
the store together for the
past six weeks. "When we
first saw it, we said 'no
thanks.' It was knee-deep in
trash, but the owner got rid
of the trash, redid the roof,
cleared the brush around the
property, and painted the
outside. We painted the in-
side and started to move
items into the store," he said.
Chambers has committed
wholly to helping Habitat
make the store a success. She
planned a Memorial Day
weekend sale on her large


property adjacent to the
store. "I'm not charging any
vendor for space, but instead
asking artists to donate what
they don't sell to the store or
to make a donation for the
store. I plan to have a num-
ber of sales over the summer


to benefit Habitat," she said.
Ultimately the offices of
Habitat for Humanity will be
housed in one end, with the
remainder of the building be-
ing the showroom. "Our goal

C.O.P.E. Center Rhonda Riess, winner of the Elise R. Salisbury Award


Rhonda Riess of C.O.P.E.
Center, Inc. received the
Elise R. Salisbury Award for
her work in Children Ser-
vices from the Mental Health
Association of Okaloosa Wal-
ton. She was nominated for
this award because of her
dedication to working with
therapeutic foster children
and going out of her way to
ensure the children in
C.O.P.E.'s PATH program
have the best possible care.
She solicits new foster
families for the program,
training them individually at


their homes to ensure they
can use in the child's natural
setting what they are being
taught.
Riess provides monthly
training for the Therapeutic
Foster Parents, and makes
the environment comfortable
and nurturing by preparing
home cooked meals. "Riess
is a dedicated advocate for
some of Florida's most emo-
tionally wounded children.
Her enthusiasm is unwaver-
ing, her smile like her per-
sonality, as big as the
world, only exceeded by the


warmth of her heart," said
Felix Beukenkamp, board
president of MHA of
Okaloosa Walton.
Riess works with C.O.P.E.
Center's Therapeutic Foster
Homes through the PATH
Program. The program phi-
losophy of Parenting and
Therapeutic Homes (PATH)
is to provide an intensive
therapeutic experience
aimed at preventing place-


ment in a more restrictive
residential treatment facility
by increasing the therapeu-
tic intervention with the
child and family while at the
same time providing a nur-
turing home environment.

For more information on
the PATH program and

COUNCILMAN DON HARRISON, with wife, Leesa, was
elected as president of the Northwest Florida League of Cities.
The pair are shown here at the League's recent dinner meet-
ing.


Harrison elected

League of Cities president


By LEIGH STRICKLAND

DeFuniak Springs City
Council member i Don
Harrison was elected presi-
dent of the Northwest Florida
League of Cities at the
organization's sumhi'er din-
ner on Friday, May 18.
The NWFLC has members
from almost all of the
Panhlandle's municipalities,
mc including DeFun iak Springs,
* Paxton, and Freeport.
According to Harrison; 54 of
60 Panhandle cities are mem-
bers. A number of businesses,
including engineering and
accounting firms, who work
closely with these cities are
also included as associate
members.
It is the purpose of the
NWFLC, Harrison said, to
promote issues of common
interest to all municipalities
at the state level. Among
other things, this may include
issues of taxation and utili-
ties.
The organization is led by
a board of directors that
meets once a month. The
board is made up of several
members, including a legisla-
tive chair who is involved in
lobbying with Panhandle leg-
islators.
Harrison has been on the
board for a number of years,
serving last year as its First
Vice President.
For its annual elections, the
board of directors appoints a
nominating committee, which
makes recommendations.
Members, which include may-
ors, council members, and city


managers from various mu-
nicipalities, then vote,
A little more than 200 mem-
bers voted in this year's elec-
tion, Harrison said.
Harrison will serve from
now until next May and said
that his duties as president
will include presiding at
board meetings, coordinating
legislative lobbying efforts
and organizing training ses-
sions forthe training of newly
elected city officials.


By LEIGH STRICKLAND
Holmes County may soon be
home to a new animal
park attraction.
According to a recent news
report on WMBB-TV,
Jim Fowler, former host of the
television show Mutual
of Omaha's Wild Kingdom,
plans to open an animal park
in the Bonifay area.
Fowler will reportedly be
signing off this week on
a land deal for the area
around Smith Lake, which
is located a few miles south
of Bonifay.
The park is expected to pro-
vide jobs to anywhere
from 1,500 to 2,000 people,
the report said, impacting
communities within a 60-mile
radius. This would include


several communities ion Wal-
ton County.
However, plans are still in
very early stages.
Bonifay City Council mem-
ber Roger Brooks said
that even the city has not re-
ceived information about
the planned park. Plans are
so premature, he said,
that any comment on it at
this point would be inappro-
priate.
Further details on the
planned development are to'
be released in an official
press conference at 1:30
p.m., Wednesday, May 31, at
the Holmes County Chamber
of Commerce in Bonifay.

one of three classifications.
Let's start with 'The Good.' Since we're talking about gov-
ernment, this won't take long, but I've got to hand it to Re-
publican lawmakers in the state of Washington for having
the courage to do what most of us wish Republicans in Wash-
ington, D.C. had the backbone to do.
That state Republican party adopted a resolution calling
for an end to the Constitution's guarantee of automatic citi-
zenship to the U.S.-born children of illegal immigrants. Yes,
they did.
Republicans there said they did it because of grave con-
cerns about the spiraling cost to public hospitals and the
expense of welfare for the children of indigent or deported
illegal immigrants.
Although the 14th Amendment allows that all persons born
in the U.S. are Americans, many illegals use the clause to
gain citizenship and get around their illegal entry into the
country.
State Democratic Party Chairman Dwight Pelz called the
resolution "a punitive and inhumane response to the immi-
gration issue America is confronting," and predicted it would
be an embarrassment to Republican candidates.
Frankly, I think Mr. Pelz and the rest of that gaggle of
Democrats being led by Sen. Ted Kennedy, who wants to
embrace all illegal immigrants, have a lot more to be embar-
rassed about than Washington state Republicans.
Next, let's turn to 'The Bad.'
The Supreme Court has now decided that people who work
for the government are not citizens, at least not fully.
By a 5-4 vote, the Court has again reinterpreted the Con-
stitution, claiming that it now says that it should be harder
for government employees to blow the whistle on their cor-
rupt bosses, than it is for you and me.
I wonder why that is so important to some of these jus-
tices? Would you like to guess which justice broke the tie
vote? None other than President Bush's handpicked right-
wing choice, Samuel Alito.
What a disgrace. I've read the Constitution and, trust me,
it doesn't say that everyone is entitled to free speech except
government employees.
Four Supreme Court justices agree with me.
Justice John Paul Stevens wrote, "Public employees are
still citizens while they are in the office. The notion that there
is a categorical difference between speaking as a citizen and



Editor,
A little over a year ago, driving through DeFuniak Springs
was like being in a 4th of July parade. Private homes, pri-
vate owed businesses, banks, organizations, and public
buildings displayed the American Flag. Vehicles were dis-
playing flags, and, or ribbons with patriotic messages.
Many private homes, especially in the Historic District,
continue to display the American Flag, and other patriotic
messages. I find it sad that many homes and businesses no
longer fly Old glory. Some public buildings, new businesses
in our city, and government building no longer fly theAmeri-
can Flag.
When visitors came to my 'home, I couldn't wait to take
them to town and show them DeFuniak Springs', "Proud-
to-be-American-attitude." I do the same at Christmas.
I thank all who proudly continue to fly the American Flag
every day. A special thanks goes to Quality Glass, Bobs
Cycles, The American Business complex, ACE Hardware,
PoBoys, McDonalds, and Wal-Mart. I'm sure there are oth-
ers.
Let all who pass through our city know that, "Here in De-
Funiak Springs, patriotism is a life style."
Fly the American Flag proudly.

speaking in the course of one's employment is quite wrong."
Justice David H. Souter wrote: "private and public inter-
ests in addressing official wrongdoing and threats to health
and safety can outweigh the government's stake in the effi-
cient implementation of policy."
Once again, our greatest right, the freedom of speech, has
been mangled, mutilated and spat upon by the very people
we have entrusted to protect us. I am not alone when I say
that it sometimes appears to me that we have more reason
to be afraid of our own federal government than from the
most vicious, bloodthirsty terrorist alive.
Terrorists can take only lives, while government can for-
ever take our freedom. In the long shadow of this Memorial
Day, I am reminded that many of our brightest and best
Americans gave their lives for freedom and believed it to be
a good trade.
Speaking of Memorial Day, let's now turn to 'The Ugly.'
At Arlington National Cemetery, where many of our great-
est American heroes forever rest, one group of angry pro-
testers managed to disrupt Memorial Day in the most ugly
and unseemly way.
A group of Iraq War protesters from the Westboro Baptist
Church of Topeka, Kansas, sang "God hates America" and
held signs that read "You're going to hell" and "Bush killed
them."
Across the street, another small group known as
FreeRepublic.Com held a large sign saying, "God bless our
troops, defenders of freedom, American heroes."
Friends, I agree that the Bush administration had no busi-
ness launching an unprovoked attack against a Third World
country that did not attack us, had no means of attacking us
and had no ties to the group that actually did attack us, but
to blame American troops who are living and dying there
because of a sacred oath they swore to this country is igno-
rance to the point of stupidity.
Regardless of why the president sent them to Iraq, every
man and woman there deserve nothing less than our unwa-
vering respect, our gratitude, our support and our prayers.
I defend anyone's right to protest the actions of our gov-
ernment, but to do so at Arlington National Cemetery on
Memorial Day while bathed in the light of the Eternal
Flame...now that's unpatriotic.

Editor:
Considering the questionable wisdom of building on the
beach and the importance the Corps of Engineers places on
turtles, questions come to mind. Where was the COE'S con-
cern when the seaward construction line was established
and building permits were being issued? It appears that
they are being selective in choosing their priorities.
This is the same agency that, through failure to exercise
due diligence, has allowed easements for depositing dredge
material to be encroached upon. This has prevented dredg-
ing to increase the depth of LaGrange Bayou which, in turn,
has prevented New York Ship Co. from expanding their busi-
ness and increasing their workforce. It has also increased
the shipping costs for other businesses along the waterway.
This increase is passed along to you and me.
Regulatory agencies have the luxury of voicing problems
without having to provide solutions or bear the cost of solu-
tions. The agency's insistence upon exercising jurisdiction
over isolated wetlands, in defiance of court decisions, has
presented an obstacle to the development of affordable hous-
ing and contributed to the cost of other development.
Further, through embroiling the agency in court challenges
over this issue, it has cost all taxpayers. Additionally, as
with other regulatory agencies they have de facto taxing
ability through their regulatory authority. Didn't we have a
tea party in Boston about issues like this?

Editor:
Given the desperate plight of sharks worldwide, the story
of the Florida man who recently killed a -record-breaking"
hammerhead should have run on the obituary page. Ham-
merheads are fascinating and complex animals. They are
one of the most highly evolved types of shark. The wide sepa-
ration of the eyes gives superior vision, and the frontal lobe
between their eyes is spanned by sensory organs that de-
tect changes in pressure and electrical fields.
There are few "sporting" events more blatantly testoster-
one-driven than trawling for sharks. Those who catch these
animals take unabashed pride in the perceived bravery it
takes to bait a hook and fake out a fish. Readers who think
these amazing animals should be protected instead of per-
secuted should visit www.FishingHurts.com.

WALTON COUNTY
FAMILY
PREPAREDNESS
GUIDE


WALTON COUNTY THIS MONTH

Hurricane Season is upon us and this year is predicted to be as active as 2005. The National
Hurricane Center predicts the 2006 season will bring 17 named storms, nine of which will be
hurricanes. Five of those hurricanes will be Category 3 or higher. Usually the season starts in
June and ends in November, but last year we had tropical storm Zeta on December 30th!
The 2005 season had 27 named storms, surpassing the record of 21 set in 1933. Thirteen of
the storms were hurricanes, breaking the record set in 1959. Seven of those hurricanes were
considered major, with three reaching a Category 5 status, meaning they had wind speeds
greater than 155 mph at some point during the storm.

Planning is the key to survival during any disaster and it is better if we look at hurricane
preparation as not just seasonal, but year-round. All Walton County residents are urged to
pick up a copy of the "Walton County Family Preparedness Guide." This booklet includes a
section for important contact numbers, family and medical information. Also available are
wallet size cards with local TV and radio station information and out-of-area radio stations
that have agreed to run Walton County information during and after a storm. The booklets
and cards are available at all Walton County libraries, county commissioners offices, the city
hall in Freeport, Paxton and DeFuniak Springs, the south Walton Annex, the building
department in south Walton, the Walton County Courthouse, Mossy Head Water Works, and
the Walton County Public Information Office on College Avenue.


Some suggestions to help you prepare you and your family
in the event of a hurricane in our area:

Evacuation Plan
* Know, where you will go ahead of time in case you are
told to evacuate. Choose more than one location.
Make sure you notify family and friends where you
are going and how they can contact you.
* Make, sure you know more than one route to your
evacuation location. (The Walton County Family
Preparedness Guide has the evacuation routes listed
for Walton County)
* If you do not plan to evacuate you should be prepared to
sustain you and your family for up to five days.
* There are six basic kits your home should have: water,
food, first aid supplies, clothing/bedding, tools and
emergency supplies. Keep the items you would most
-likely need during an evacuation in an easy-to-carry
container such as a large plastic container with a lid
or a duffel bag.
* Have important family documents ready to take with
you. Keep insurance policies, birth certificates,
marriage licenses, wills, immunization records, bank
account numbers, and an inventory of valuable
household items (with photos or video) in a
water-proof Zip-lock bag.
* Have a photo identification for yourself and each family
member.


Your Home


* Have plywood, nails, screws and other -/*
materials on hand to cover your windows
and doors.
* Knowhow to shut off the utilities to your home.
* Check your insurance policies to make sure you have the
coverage you need. Know what your policy does and
doesn't cover. Many policies won't give you the
money to "replace" the damaged contents of your
home, but will give you the cash value, which is often
far less than the cost of replacement. Also determine
if your policy will pay for temporary living expenses if
your home becomes uninhabitable.
* Check your policy for windstorm and flood coverage. A
standard policy does not cover flood damage. You can
obtain flood insurance by calling the National Flood
Insurance Program at 1-800-638-6622. There may be a
waiting period, so call now!
* If you rent, make sure you have renter's insurance for
your personal property.
* If you evacuate, unplug appliances before you leave.
* If ydu live in an identified flood zone, and if time
permits, move furniture to a higher floor. Moving
valuable furnishings helps reduce potential damage.


Your Children ,
Children are likely to experience fear and anxiety
during the course of a hurricane or other disaster. l
They n"ai manifest their fear through hyperactivity,
distraction, clinging to parents and regression of learned
behaviors such as toilet training and sleeping in their own
bed. Asa parent you can help lessen the anxiety.

* Calmly talk to your children about hurricanes. Let them
i know there will be strong winds, lightning, thunder and
heavy rain.
* Reassure them that you have made preparations to keep
them safe.
* Make your kids a part of preparation plans by having them
gather their favorite objects (crayons, books, small toys,
board games) and put them in a box or bag.
* Avoid crying and other emotional outbursts in front of
your children. To a child this represents a tragedy.
Your calmness and optimism assures them of a quick
return to normal activities.
* Do not allow your children to walk in flooded areas or in
the yard if there is debris.
* Your patience, assurance and love are the most important
things you can give your children to guide them
through a time of disaster.


Your Vehicle

Make plans to protect your vehicle long
before a storm approaches.
* Clean out your garage so you can park your car inside.
* If your car has to stay outdoors, park it where it will be most
protected, along the side of your house and away from
power lines and trees.
* Check the air in your tires and fill the gas tank before a
storm-gas stations usually need electricity to power their
pumps.
* After the storm, avoid driving through standing water. A car
can be swept off the road in 12 inches of moving water.
Over 75% of deaths related to a hurricanes are due to
drowning. Don't go sightseeing, power lines may be down
and the streets littered with debris.


Your Yard


* Keep trees and shrubbery trimmed. I -
* Make trees more wind resistant by removing diseased or
damaged branches and strategically remove branches so
wind can blow through the tree.
* Clear clogged rain gutters and downspouts. Hurricanes bring
long periods of heavy rain, and water could back up and
cause flooding on the roof and around the house.
,*, Remove any,debris and secure loos.eyard items such as
garbagd.caps, hoses, gardening supplies and lawn
furniture. Winds at high speeds can pick up anything un
secured and cause damage to property.
* If you have a pool, keep extra chlorine on hand to help
prevent contamination from excess debris.


Your Phones
Your cellular phone can be a valuable tool
during an emergency situation.
* Have a communications plan in place.
* Program all your emergency contact numbers into
your cell phone.
* Keep extra cell phone batteries charged at all times.
* Keep your phone dry.
* Consider forwarding any incoming calls from your home to
your cell'phone in the event you evacuate.
* Make sure all family members and outside contacts
have your cell number.
* Have at least one phone in your home that
doesn't need electricity to operate. Cordless
phones are handy, but need electricity!


Your Pets


* Pets are not allowed in evacuation shelters.
Only service animals are permitted.
* Plan to go where your pet will be welcome. Make
arrangements for a safe place for your pet before
the need arises.
* Contact hotels and motels in non-evacuation areas to see if
they will allow your pet to stay with you during a storm.
* Make sure you have two weeks worth of supplies for
your pets.

Eucheeanna: A proud history


By JEFFREY POWELL
Writing about history can
be a daunting undertaking.
The task seems simple
enough: collect facts, put
them in order and there you
have it, history.
The truth however, is
somewhat more complicated.
Most history contains incon-
sistencies. This is because,
intentionally or not, authors
leave something of them-
selves in their writings,
This fact is certainly true

when studying John L.
McKinnon's "History of Wal-
ton County".
According to local histo-
rian Bill Steadley-Campbell,
"McKinnon's book is a won-
derful study of the social cli-
mate of early Walton County."
Steadley-Campbell also feels
that McKinnon played a little
loose with early dates and
events.
According to Steadley-
Campbell, Daniel Douglass
Campbell and Neil
McLennan left North Caro-
lina in the spring of 1818 in
search of pasture land and a
place to raise their families.
This search led them south to
McGillivary's Trading Post in
Pensacola.
McGillivary introduced
them to a Native American
we know today as Sam Story.
Story was the leader of a
group of native Floridians liv-
ing in. what is now Walton
County. Story brought

The June First Friday


Campbell and Mclennan to
his winter home near Bruce
Creek and they liked what
they saw. The following year,
McLennan returned to North
Carolina to retrieve his fam-
ily and belongings.\
In the summer of 1819,
McLennan returned and
shortly thereafter more set-
tlers came along, almost all
of whom were family, friends
and servants.
With families in place,
these early settlers could go
about living their daily lives,
steeped in the tradition of
their Scottish ancestry.
"These early settlers held
firm to three core values,"
says Steadley-Campbell,
"God, family and education."
May 27, 1827 saw the or-
ganization of the Euchee Val-
ley Presbyterian Church. The
sanctuary standing today is
the third building and the
church's floor joists contain
beams from the original
structure. The Euchee Valley


Church is the oldest continu-
ally congregated Presbyte-
rian Church in Florida.
Early on, small schools
dotted the area in an effort to
ensure education for the chil-
dren. Sometime in the early
1840s a northern educator by
the name of John Newton ar-
rived in the valley.
Newton started and built
the Knox Hill Academy. As
Knox Hill's reputation grew,
so did its student population.
Students came from miles
around to study at one of the
finest educational facilities in
the Florida South Alabama
area. Newton had two daugh-
ters named Mary and Esther.
Today's community known as
Mary Esther is named after
these two girls.
Life carried on until the
Civil War disrupted the en-
tire country. Although Walton
County voted against seces-
sion, many locals entered


Confederate service. Locals
paid the price during Recon-
struction, as did the rest of
the southeast United States.
Eucheeanna's demise, as a
town, came with the arrival
of the railroad. As a result the


county seat was moved in
1885 to DeFuniak Springs.
Many prominent and suc-
cessful people have come
from from Euchee Valley, and
the current residents are
right fully proud.

COASTAL INLAND
HEIGHTS LAUNCHED
NEAR FREEPORT
By BRUCE COLLIER
The Walton County Chamber of Commerce and the City of
Freeport joined to welcome the Coastal Inland Heights devel-
opment to the Freeport area. The "new urbanism community,"
called Owl's Head, covers 1,600 acres.
A "christening" ceremony and reception was held on the morn-
ing of May 24. Sponsors set up a large tent, chairs, a stage and
refreshment tables, featuring an "Oxygen Bar."
The bar spoofed the "altitude" of the development, 110 feet
above sea level.
Other height jokes included a drawing for an altimeter, and
a recorded medley of songs, all of which had a mountain theme.
Invited guests included Owl's Head developer Jeff Tucker of
Atlanta, Freeport Mayor Mickey Marse, and Walton County
Commissioners Rosier Cuchens and Kenneth Pridgen.
Though unable to attend in person, Governor Jeb Bush and state
Representative Don Brown sent letters of congratulations and
encouragement to the project.
Tucker spoke, as did Pridgen, Marse, and chamber president
Dawn Moliterno. "This is a regional effort," she said.
Speakers paid tribute to the beaches of south Walton, charac-
terizing the development on one hand as "complementing" the
beaches, and as an "alternative" to them.
Marse reminisced about hunting on the property, adding that
"the rest of the world has found us."
Though this is an opportunity for jobs and housing, he said.
Freeport must not lose its identity...... ...,., .
Pridgen agreed that both north and "
south Walton are part of an "over- ,
all complex system," and that
growth should be -directed."
The governor's letter offered
"best wishes." while Brown warned
of the "weather risk" in this "most ..-
precious part of the world."
Brown plans to petition to the
Florida Department ofTransporta- .
tion to put Coastal Inland Heights ^.,..;" -
on road maps as a recognized corn- -'
munity. .
The ceremony closed with cham- .
pagne, and a photo shoot of the in-
vited guests and developers posing .
around a large road map, featur-
ing the name of the new commu-
nity. I "

SNOOPY WOULD BE PROUD of Smokie BlackMax and owner Tom Martin, who
trained the champion beagle.

Max takes top honors

from National Kennel Club


Tom Martin, of DeFuniak
Springs, has recently re-
ceived top honors from the
National Kennel Club, Inc.
and the American Rabbit,
Hound Association for the
performance of his prized
beagle, Smokie BlackMax.
In April, "Max" earned the"
coveted degree of merit cer-
tificate for the Little Pack
Bench Show Champion. This
national designation is made
by earning qualifying points
in different categories at area
field trials. Max earned his
points in one year, when gen-
erally, it takes most dogs four
to five years to qualify-for this
level. Max was parented by
two National Bench Show
Champions.
Since March 2005, Martin
and Max placed in the top ten
at numerous field trails for
superb performance. Max
was also named the Best
Puppy at the Dixieland
Beagle Club trail and the
Best Male at the Alabama/
Tri-County Beagle Club and

For locals who know Tom
Martin and his reputation for
training dogs, this comes as
no surprise. Martin has bred
and worked champion set-
ters, pointers, and beagles for
over forty years.

2005 ANNUAL DRINKING WATER QUALITY REPORT
CITY OF FREEPORT


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

We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our
constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process
and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is ground water from 5 wells. The wells draw from the Floridan Aquifer.
Because of the excellent quality of our water, the only treatment required is chlorine for disinfection purposes.

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

If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact David Fannin at
Freeport City Hall (850) 835-2822. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any .of our regularly scheduled
meetings. They are held on 2nd Tuesday & the 4th Thursday of each month at Freeport City Hall @ 7:00 PM.

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

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

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

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

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

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

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

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

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

We at The City of Freeport work around the clock to provide top quality water to every tap We ask that all our customers help us protect our water sources, which are the heart of our
community, our way of life and our children's future.

The Northbay Water System had a monthly Total coliform sample test positive for bacteria in June 2005. Repeat samples were taken with two samples showing coliform present.
Additional samples were taken and found to be absent of total coliform. Coliforms are bacteria that are naturally present in the environment and are used as an indicator that other,
potentially harmful, bacteria may be present. When coliforms are found in more samples than allowed there is a warning of potential problems. DEP regulations require 5 samples to be
run the following month after any positive distribution sample. Additional water samples were collected the following month and found to be free of total coliform.

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

By BRUCE COLLIER
Preliminary figures from
Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) show that 37 persons
were killed in traffic crashes

The same period saw 146
people charged with DUI, and
8,179 cited for speeding. FHP

3,172 drivers on Florida's
highways.
Of the 1,556 collisions in-
vestigated by FHP, 98 have
been classified as "alcohol-
related."
Other preliminary figures
show that of the 37 fatalities,
20 were killed during the
hours of darkness.
Of the 34 fatal crashes, 15
percent were determined to
be alcohol-related, 27 percent
are at present not classified
as alcohol-related, and 59
percent are as yet undeter-
mined.
Four of the six motorcy-
clists killed were wearing hel-
mets.
Of the number of persons
killed while in vehicles nor-
mally equipped with safety


belts, 60 percent of those
killed were not wearing the
belts.
A preliminary statewide
survey, broken down by coun-
ties, shows Miami-Dade in
the lead with six of the 37 fa-
talities.
Orange County came in


second with three. Okaloosa,
Nassau, St. Johns, Hernando,
Polk, Lee, Volusia, Charlotte,
and Martin Counties all tied

God sent you to us not so long ago
A beautiful child, a generous soul
You grew up so quickly, your future not known,
A lovely young woman with dreams all your own.
Dear treasured daughter, sister and friend,
You were such a blessing that knew no end.
With so much ahead and so much to do,
We had no idea what God planned for you.
Then just as quickly as you came,
God took you back with Him again.
Your job was finished, His plan complete,
Our beautiful Brandi now sleeps in peace.
Your smile and your laughter, your hopes and your tears,
You will always be with us throughout all our years
We'll never forget you, we're never apart
Brandi we love you, you're always in our hearts.
Happy Birthday Brandi!!
Twenty-three years ago today, the Lord blessed us
with a shining star here on earth and now is in Heaven
above. We miss you so much. Your love is with
us everyday, just as ours is with you.
Please release a balloon for Brandi on June 1st.
We Love You Brandi,
Mom, Dad & Shane
"Who You'd Be Today"
Sunny days seem to hurt the most.
I wear the pain like a heavy coat.
I feel you everywhere I go.
I see your smile, I see your face,
I hear you laughing' in the rain.
I still can't believe you're gone.
It ain't fair: you died too young,
Like the story that had just begun,
But death tore the pages all away.
God knows how I miss you,
All the hell that I've been through,
Just known' no-one could take your place.
An' sometimes I wonder,
Who you'd be today?

Two-Liners On Grace
SBy Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC

How much do we really apply practical grace? I am sure
that many sinners have been justified in their un-godly
behavior due to our God-less behavior. The little song, "for
the Father up above is looking down in love...," is very ap-
propriate to keep in mind at all times. We are writing a
gospel every day by deeds that we do, by words that we
say, people read our gospel, whether be faulty or true, so,
what is the gospel according to you? Listen with your heart
to these two liners of grace:
From a side road he zooms, causes me to brake; take
hold of my tongue let it not retaliate.
That brother or sister thinks different to me, give me
the grace to just let it be.
I want to talk and make my point, but help me to lis-
ten, with your grace anoint.
That group over there, they're not like us; shut up, says
the Lord, don't make a fuss.
"He spilt his drink, he spoilt my dress." Others there are
in a much greater mess!
I'll go it alone, I need no help. We can learn from the
pup who lets out a yelp.
Look, there's a blind man, another with no arm, so thank
the Lord you've come to no harm.
God gave two ears, two eyes and one mouth,
just something to think about.
We invite you to attend the exciting Freeport UMC. Our
Sunday School begins at 8:45a.m.; Worship 9:45; Evening
5:15 p.m.; Wednesday 6 p.m.; Radio program WZEP 1460,
7:15-7.30 a.m. Stop by here on your way to eternity.


Unforgtten.


They were there for us and for our country.
Some couldn't wait to come home to the families :
they loved-others gave the ultimate sacrifice.
Today, as every day, they remain unforgotten. I

SPORTS _


Northwest Florida still

seeking first fast-pitch softball title


By Patrick Casey
Fast-pitch softball has
been played at the high school
level in the state of Florida
since 1988. The six classifica-
tion system has been used
since 1996. Eighty-five state
champions have been named
in the sport since 1988.
Northwest Florida has
claimed none of those titles.
In fact, no school from Pensa-
cola to Tallahassee has laid
claim to a softball title. That's
0-85 lifetime and 0-66 for the
last eleven years that the six
class system has been in use.
The 2006 season saw three
teams from our region make
it to the state Final Four.
Pace, Navarre, and
Wewahitchka all advanced to
Plant City to try and claim
this region's first softball
championship. All failed,
again.
Navarre got the closest as
the Raiders were the only one
of the three teams to reach a
championship game. Navarre
shutout Palatka 1-0 in the
state semifinals only to run
into four-time defending
champion Bartow in the fi-
nale.
Bartow made it five
straight state championships
with a 4-1 victory over
Navarre. Wewahitchka and
Pace both fell in the state
semifinals of their respecti-ve
classes. Wewa fell to eventual
Class 2A champion Jackson-
ville Bishop Snyder 4-1. Pace
got roughed up by eventual
state champion Auburndale
8-2 in Class 5A.
The Bethlehem Wildcats
in 2005 became the.first team
from Walton or Holmes.
County to ever qualify for. a.
state championship game in
the sport. Unfortunately for
the Wildcats, they promptly


got whacked by Tampa Cam-
bridge 12-2 in the Class A
championship game.
Only seven teams from the
aforementioned region have
ever qualified for the finale.
North Florida Christian in
Tallahassee and Navarre
have qualified (and lost)
twice, while Pensacola Tate,
Wewahitchka and Bethlehem
have each been to a champi-
onship game once and lost.
Tate and Wewahitchka are
the only two of the seven
teams that flirted with cap-
turing the title in the finale.
They each went on to lose by
only two run deficits. Tate
lost to Naples 2-0 in 2001 in
the Class 5A title game while
Wewahitchka lost to Holly-
wood Christian 3-1 in 2003 in
Class A.
Fast-pitch softball is still
in its infancy at the high
school level. Slow-pitch soft-
ball was the staple at the high
school level thru most of the
1980's, but universities
needed athletes who could
play the fast-pitch game,
prompting the Florida High
School Athletic Association to
move to the fast-pitch ver-
sion. Fast-pitch softball is a
game that is dominated by
pitching and catching. At the
high school level, lack of a
dominant pitcher may not
keep a team from winning
games locally, but on the state
level, leaves a team with little
chance of making a run in the
playoffs. Of the 85 state
championship games played,
43 have ended in shutout vic-
tories.
Walton County's track
record in the softball playoffs
is not very eventful. Paxton
won its district this season
'and went 1-1 in the state
tournament, the only county


squad to win at least their
opening playoff game. Paxton
has been to the playoffs seven
times, the most among county
squads, but holds only a 3-7
record in state competition.
Freeport has been the
most successful, though they
did miss out on a state berth
in 2006, as they have quali-
fied for the playoffs six times
with the Bulldogs holding a
6-6 record. Walton finally
earned their first fast-pitch
playoff berth in 2006 only to
get whacked in Marianna by
the Bulldogs 10-2. South Wal-
ton is just beginning to build
their program and is still
looking for their first-ever
trip to the playoffs. Ponce de
Leon won their district this
season, but fell to Baker 12-1
in the opening round. The
Pirates are only 1-4 in four
post-season trips.
Charles Trotman has been
the head coach of Freeport's
team in all six of their appear-
ances and the Bulldogs are
the only'team in the county
to reach the Regional
Final(twice), the step right
before the State Final Four.
2006 saw area teams take
a step forward. PDL and Pax-
ton won their districts while
Walton earned their first
playoff trip as a runner-up.
All three squads were young
and will return a significant
portion of their talent.
Freeport also fielded a young
team, breaking in a freshman
pitcher, that should see them
improve in 2007. South Wal-
ton continues to improve and
should become more of a com-
batant locally in the next few
years. Looking ahead, .2007
could be the year this region
finally sees a fast-pitch soft-
ball champion crowned.
We can always hope.


THE ANNUAL DEFUNIAK SPRINGS Country Club golf tournament and luau takes
place this weekend. Hundreds of golfers from all over the region will compete in the tourna-
ment that has grown in size every year.

Local sports news and notes


By Patrick Casey
Walton and South Walton
will take part in a nine-team
summer basketball league
that begins play on May 30.
Fort Walton Beach,
Choctaw, Rocky Bayou,
Milton, Crestview, Niceville,
and Navarre are the other
squads that will face off over
a five week summer period.
University of Central
Florida Head Coach George
O'LPgay Ijas signed a 10-ypnar
contract extension to remain
the Golden Knights leader
through the 2015 season.
O'Leary was the 2005 Confer-
ence USA Coach of the Year
after leading UCF to an 8-5
record and a trip to the
Sheraton Hawaii Bowl.
O'Leary led the squad to eight
wins just a year after UCF
went 0-11 on the gridiron.
O'Leary, who is set to begin
his third season as head
coach this fall, will receive an
annual salary of $1 million
with incentives worth up to
$500,000 a year.
Kudos to Freeport High
School after the institution
captured its third sportsman-
ship award from the FHSAA
in the last five years. The
community has a lot to be
proud of in garnering an
award that shines on its ath-
letes, coaches, fans, and ad-
ministration. The extra
$3,000 in award money
doesn't hurt eitherin this day
and age as athletic budgets
continue to remain tight.

Clemson captured theACC
baseball tournament title in
Jacksonville this past week-
.end. The ACC plans to keep
the baseball tourney in Jack-
sonville for the next two
years, then make a trip to
Boston's Fenway Park in


2009 for the tournament..
The Atlantic Coast Confer-
ence also announced that its
men's basketball tournament
will be held in Tampa next
season and in Charlotte in
2008. Atlanta will get the nod
in March of 2009.
Former Marianna gradu-
ate Jeff Mathis opened the
season as a catcher for the
Los Angeles Angels. April was
not kind to the former Bull-
dog as he hit only .103 in 12
games while committing two
errors behind the plate.
Mathis was optioned to Triple
A Salt Lake City on May 3,
but he may return later this
season if he can get his bat-
ting average up.


The University of Cental
Florida is set to play football
on campus in 2007. The
Golden Knights are building
a 45,000-seat stadium on
campus that is expected to be
ready for a September 15,
2007, date with the Texas
Longhorns. UCF currently
plays all of its home football
games in the Citrus Bowl,
which has been the site of the
squad's games since its inau-
gural season in 1979.
The Southeastern Confer-
ence has announced that the
SEC baseball tournament
will remain in Hoover, Ala-
bama through the year 2011.

FHSAA athletic transfer rules on hold


Enforcement of the
FHSAA's newly adopted com-
prehensive revision to resi-
dence and transfer rules will
be placed on hold for one year
while an independent task
force studies the issue of stu-
dent-athlete recruiting under
a bill passed by the Florida
Legislature in the closing
days of the recently concluded
2006 legislative session.
House Bill 7119, sponsored


by Representative Ralph
Arza (R-Hialeah) and the
House PreK-12 Education
Committee which he chairs,
requires the FHSAA to hold
in abeyance until July 1,
2007, the revisions to resi-
dence and transfer bylaws,
which were overwhelmingly
adopted by the Association's
61-member Representative
Assembly in January. It also
establishes the 13-member


"Student-Athlete Recruiting
Task Force." The task force
will be equally comprised of
supporters and opponents of
the FHSAA's new rules six
of each appointed by the
President of the Senate and
Speaker of the House of Rep-
resentatives. The task
force chair will be appointed
by the Governor. The bill re-
quires the Office of Program
Policy Analysis and Govern-


Babe steps aside for Bonds


By CHUCK HINSON
It was a memorable Memo-
rial Day weekend for Giant's
star slugger Barry Bonds. He
got No. 715 in front of a
packed house in San
Fransicsco.
It was like he planned the
entire event around the holi-
day weekend when a record
number of fans were on hand,
a beautiful summer day and
a homerun that put him one
above Babe Ruth. Bonds
sported a shirt that had the
number 715 that was made


especially for him and his
day.
Hank Aaron still reigns as
the homerun king with 755
homeruns. The question any
everyone's mind is will he
stay in the game long enough
to pass Aaron's milestone?
The 445-foot, two-run hit
went into the centerfield
bleachers where a sold-out
Giants' stand was cheering
and yelling once the ball hit
the bat.
Bonds said he felt confident


about getting number 715
and he knew his fans had
held on for long enough.
Throughout the game, he
seemed to control the ball
and the bases. Bonds nearly
added No. 716 late in the
game, but grounded out at
third to end the eighth inning
and was replaced in the
ninth.
Despite accusations of the
baseball star's use of ste-
roids, fans still call him hero
and a legend on the field.


ment Accountability to pro-
vide staff support to the task
force and appropriates
$60,000 to support the task
force's operation.
The task force must be ap-
pointed and hold its first
meeting by June 1. It must
submit its findings and rec-
ommendations to the Gover-
nor and Legislature by Janu-
ary 1, 2007.
The provisions of the new
rules would not apply to stu-
dent-athletes until after they
made their choice of school
this fall. Consequently, stu-
dent-athletes would not have
been impacted by the new
rules until the 2007-08 school
year anyway.
The bill requires the task
force to study seven specific
issues as it relates to the re-
cruiting of student-athletes:
(1) The definition of re-
cruiting.
(2) Current and proposed
regulations governing re-
cruiting.
(3) Documented past re-


Kahne takes Coca-Cola 600 Thank You
Thank You


By CHUCK HINSON
Memorial Day has a new
meaning for Kasey Kahne
this year. The driver cel-
ebrated his first win in six
races at the Coca-Cola 600 in
Concord, N.C. The victory
was also sweetened as he
made it to the winner's circle,
and Jimmie Johnson was
nowhere to be found.
Johnson had ruled the
track at the Lowe's track in
North Carolina where he
dominated the track after
taking the past three year's
Coca Cola race, and seven of
the last 10 races at the track.
Johnson came in well over
two seconds after Kahne.
Kahne snapped Johnson's


winning streak by taking
the lead with only 29 laps to
go. He then pulled the ulti-
mate thriller by taking such
a huge lead that neither
Johnson nor any other driver
was able to catch-up or re-
cover.
The win was the thrid vic-
tory of the season for Kahne.
It was also the first win for a
Dodge team since 1977 and
Richard Petty.
After Johnson came in sec-
ond place, Carl Edwards
came third; Mark Martin fin-
ished in fourth; and Matt
Kenseth took fifth to round
out the top five positions.
For many that attended
and even several of the race


participants. it was a race
that was laced with unusual
twists. Defending series
champion and the one drvier
that many said could defeat
Johnson, Tony Stewart was
carried to the hospital both
Saturday and Sunday night.
The first trip was during
the Busch Series race due to
a bruised shoulder. On Sun-
day he.returned to the hos-
pital for observation after he
had a wreck early in the race.
He was later released?'
Pole-sitter Scott Riggs was
then posed for the top spot,
but with 40 laps to go and a
string of problems, he had to
contend with just finishing
the race.


From the lady highlighters
softball team, we would like
to thank the Walton County
recreational and parks de-
partments for the use of Gene
Hurley Park and their par-
ticipation in the recent May
Day.event.
We appreciate all the help
in getting the park ready for
the softball tournament. Spe-
cial thanks to Todd Murphy
and Brad Allford.
Again, thanks from the
lady highlighters for making
a successful softball tourna-
ment.


cruiting practices and viola-

(4) The impact of current

(5) The relationship be-

TORPEDO GRASS and cattails encroaching upon Oyster Lake.


Invasive plant


species threaten


coastal dune lakes


By Jeffrey Powell
Evidence of invasive plant
species in Walton County's
coastal dune lakes is
becoming increasingly
apparent.
Two forms of invasive
plants are to be found, native
and exotic.
Native plants occur
naturally, but for reasons
such as contaminated storm
water runoff, proliferate at


an abnormal rate. Often this
accelerated growth rate
allows native plants, such as
cattails, to take over and
destroy other species.
Exotic plants are species
not normally found in a given
area. The popcorn tree is a
perfect example of an exotic.
Torpedo grass, Alligatorweed
and the common reed are
also exotics.
"Several factors have


conspired to increase the
invasive species" states
Phillip Ellis, project
coordinator for The
Choctawhatchee Basin
Alliance. A particularly mild
winter did not freeze some
plants. He said an abundance
of hurricane debris killed
native species and the
hurricanes have curtailed

THIS UNIDENTIFIED exotic plant is choking the shores of Eastern Lake.


Downtown

Seagrove

hotel

proposal

approved
By Dotty Nist
Many community
members were very happy
and others nearly happy
about the Downtown
Seagrove development
proposal in its final
incarnation, which received
Walton County Commission
approval on May 23.
The Seagrove area
development, which will be
known as Hotel Viridian, will
feature an upscale spa, 28
hotel rooms, a restaurant,
and 10 condominium units.
Representing the
developers, local attorney
Ken Goldberg pointed out
changes from previously
presented plans for the 1.4-
acre site, which occupies the
northwest corer of the CR-*
30A/CR-395 intersection.
The number of hotel rooms
has been reduced from 30 to'
28, a large amount of
commercial space has been
eliminated, and one rooftop
pool and bar had been
subtracted in order to reduce
impact on neighborhoods in
the vicinity, he explained.
Previous plans called for
three restaurants and
approved plans call for just
one. All retail space has been
eliminated. Goldberg
commented that originally
ingress/egress to Grove
Street was planned but that
that has been eliminated to
reduce impact on neighbors.
Regions Bank currently
occupies part of the site. The
bank will remain but its
location will change and the
building will be narrower. A
long-time grocery and eatery
"institution," Seagrove
Village Market, will be
eliminated in conjunction
with the development. The
28-room hotel, the original 10
condos, one restaurant, the
spa and one rooftop pool atop
the hotel remain in the plans.
A county-sponsored traffic
study recommends a
roundabout at the
intersection. The developers
have agreed to pay for its
design and are willing to
donate property from their
corner to make the
roundabout a reality.
Goldberg remarked that
some property owners in the
community have issues with
a roundabout, and it is
uncertain what the impact of
that will be. The developers
are donating part of a lot on
the west side of the
development property and on
CR30-A to the public, and
that parcel, 120 feet' by 40
feet in size, will be turned
into a park with benches and
bike racks. An architect for
the project explained that the
project will be "a destination
location," geared to adults
interested in "a spa
weekend." The facility will be

South Walton code case to be mediated


By BRUCE COLLIER
A lawsuit against Walton
County, now pending in fed-
eral court, is set for mediation
on June 22.
Dave's Glass and Mirror
Services, Inc. et al. v. Walton
County is set for a fall trial
date in the United States Dis-
trict Court for the Northern
District of Florida in
Pensacola.
Before a jury hears the
case, all parties will attempt
to mediate their dispute be-
fore a certified mediator.
William E. Bond Jr., of the
Pensacola law firm of Clark,
Partington, Hart, Larry,
Bond & Stackhouse, sent a


letter of confirmation to attor-
neys for Dave's Glass and
Footprints Gifts.
Clement's Antiques of
Florida, one of the original
three plaintiffs, is no longer
in the lawsuit, which was
filed in August of 2005.
The four-count lawsuit
arose out of the alleged ac-
tions of the county's Code En-
forcement Board.
Dave's Glass and Foot-
prints were cited for viola-
tions of provisions of the Wal-
ton County Comprehensive
Plan and Land Development
Code of 1997.
Specifically, the busi-
nesses were alleged.to have


violated provisions dealing
with signs and architectural
detail.
Both businesses argue
that their signs and architec-
tural detail predate the code,
were legal at the time they
were constructed, and have
not changed.
Once the code was
adopted, they argue, the
signage and architectural de-
tail constituted a "legal non-
conforming and permitted
use" on their business prop-
erty.
The four counts allege vio-
lations of the equal protection
clause of the Fourteenth
Amendment to the United
States Constitution, the due
process clause of the Fifth
Amendment to the U.S. Con-
stitution, equitable estoppel,,
and the Bert J. Harris Pri-
vate Property Rights Protec-
tion Act, a Florida statute.
Equitable estoppel is a le-
gal concept under which a
party (Walton County) which
has allowed other parties (the
businesses) to operate in a


certain way for a time, is pre,
vented stoppedped) from forc-
ing those parties to make a
"substantial change in posi-
tion."
Walton County answered
'the complaint with general
and specific denials, and ar-
gued affirmatively that the
plaintiffs were themselves
stoppede" from claiming to
have been denied due pro-
cess.
Bond, a state-certified me-
diator, set the mediation for
June 22 at his firm's office in
Pensacola, and told the attor-
neys that he intends to "stay
with it" until the matter is
settled.
The parties are expected to
furnish Bond with all plead-
ing and depositions, confiden-
tial letters stating the issues
and their positions, and any
proposed settlement terms.
Plaintiffs are represented
by Shari Thieman Greene of
Lisa S. Minshew, P.A. Defen-
dant Walton County is repre-
sented by Laureen Galeoto of
Greenberg Traurig, P.A.


Grayson Gilbert and Lucy Livingston join s i n g e r
songwriter Tim Jackson in his studio to record a radio spot
on beach safety.


Grayson Gilbert and Lucy Livingston, students of Seaside
Neighborhood School, record a radio spot on beach safety
for Beaches of South Walton Tourist Development Council.


Neighborhood school

students team up for


beach safe

To increase beach safety
awareness, students from
Seaside Neighborhood School
teamed up with Beaches of
South Walton Tourist Devel-
opment Council (TDC) to
help educate the public on
the flag warning system.
Thousands of visitors are
heading to area beaches for
the summer, many of whom
are from land-locked states
and unfamiliar the risks as-
sociated with swimming in
the gulf. For them, beach
safety is a top priority.
With assistance from the
students, Beaches of South
Walton has developed a com-
mercial to educate the pub-
lic on the flag warning sys-
tem, with special regard to
the red flag signifying knee
deep is too deep," and double
red flags indicating the wa-
ter is closed for swimming.
Currently, the commercials
are airing on WMBB News
13 and WJHG News Chan-
nel 7. In addition to acting in
the commercials, the stu-
dents were invited to partici-
pate in the entire production
process from script writing to
editing. In addition to the
television spot, two of the
Seaside Neighborhood School
students joined singer/
songwriter Tim Jackson in


his studio to record several
radio spots educating the
public on the flag system.
The spots will begin airing
on local radio stations, in-
cluding 30-A Radio and
WSBZ Seabreeze radio.
"Everyone who enters the
water should be knowledge-
able on the flag warning sys-
tem," said Tracy Louthain,
public relations and promo-
tions manager of Beach of
South Walton Tourist Devel-
opment Council.
"Working with the stu-
dents of Seaside Neighbor-
hood School, we were able to
.accomplish our goal of creat-
ing commercials to educate
the public while providing
these students a great edu-
cational experience."
The flag system indicates
current surf conditions based
on the color flag that is fly-
ing on the beach at any given
time. Red flag indicates high,
hazard (rough conditions
such as strong surf and/or
currents) and double red flag
signifies the water is closed
to the public.

beach safety and the flag
warning system, visit

Beach



restoration



stops again


By DOTTY NIST
For the fourth time, a sea
turtle "taking" or death has
mandated a suspension of
the joint Walton County-
Destin large-scale beach res-
toration project.
The latest taking, on May
21, was a loggerhead sea
turtle, and the result was an
immediate shutdown of the
project. On May 23, the local
governments received word
from the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers that the suspen-
sion is to continue until Oct.
1,2006.
Loggerhead sea turtles are
a federally protected threat-
ened species.
According to Brad Pickel,
project coordinator for Wal-
ton County, prior to the sus-
pension, 77 percent of the
Walton County portion of the
project was completed and
about 53 percent of the total
project.
The state-designated criti-
cally eroded project area en-
compasses about five miles
on the west end of the Wal-
ton County coast and two
adjoining miles in Destin.
The $23 million undertak-
ing has added 1.45 million
cubic yards of sand and wid-
ened the beach by 75 to 100
feet in the completed portion.
Work began in early spring
2006 at the east end of the
project area and had pro-
gressed eastward to a point
just east of the Costa del Sol,
condominiums in Miramar.
Beach, a complex that sus-
tained serious erosion-re-
lated damage during last
year's hurricane season.
"The reason for the suspen-
sion was that the project re-
sulted in four turtle takes,"
Pickel said.
He explained that a total of
49 sea turtles had been suc-
cessfully relocated from the
dredging area through trawl-
ing procedures since the be-
ginning of the project. After
each suspension following a
sea turtle take, additional
turtle safeguards have been
implemented.
"Turtle casualties are the
unfortunate downside to
beach restoration projects of
this size, Pickel commented.
"No matter how many safe-
guards you institute, there
will still be risks and it is up
to government officials to
oversee the delicate balance
between endangered species
and public safety," he added.
Pickel said that nine beach
restoration or nourishment
projects since 1995 have each
resulted in four or more
turtle takes. This year, the
Bay County beach nourish-
ment project resulted in
three sea turtle deaths and


the Navarre Beach project
took one sea turtle.
* Sea turtle deaths in the
Walton County project have
consisted of two loggerheads
and two Kemp's Ridleys.
Pickel said that Walton
County and the city of Destin
are "exploring all avenues
available" to restart beach
restoration as .oon as pos-
sible. .:, '

Seaside Rep's Robin Hood


entertains kids and families


By BRUWE COLLIER
Sea sd was temporarily
transformed into Sherwood
Forest, pnd Walton County
became Nottinghamshire on
Memorial Day evening, with
Seaside Repertory Theatre's
(SRT) family production of
Robin Hood.
The play opened on May
22, and is continuing through
July 31. All performances are
on Monday, at 7:30 p.m., in
the Seaside Amphitheater.
Admission is free, and fami-
lies are invited to bring
chairs, blankets, and refresh-
ments.
Threqactors, aided by two
stagehanrds, performed a va-
riety of characters, including
Robin Hood, Little John,
Maid Marian, Friar Tuck, the
Sheriff of Nottingham, evil
Prince John, and good King
Richard Lionheart.
The cast is Christian
Philippone, Larissa Shea,
and Stephen Ladow. Both
Philippone and Shea are new-
comers .to SRT. Ladow ap-
peared in SRT's premiere pro-
ductiorr of The Fantasticks in
2001, and has been seen on
local and regional stages.
The trio played to a packed
hillside, moving from the
platform stage and into the
audience Robin, Marian,. and
Prince John all enlisted the
children to participate in
dances, cheers, tricks, and an
archery contest.
As RAdin Hood. Philippone
asked the children in the au-
dience to :ake an oath "al-
ways to do good." and to cheer
for the return of "good King
Richard."
Philippone and Ladow had
an entertaining fight with
quarterstaves as Robin and
Little John. Shea tirelessly
worked the audience as the
K er-hungry Friar Tuck. All
Qi-ee. aNayed their various
chara trs with ease and en-
'ergy.

At the end of the play, the
audience stood in apprecia-
tion, andithe cast stayed late
for photr aphs with children
and families.

Point Washington Post



Office still going strong


By Jeffrey Powell
Point Washington has had
a post office since December
22, 1873.
Over 130 years later
Postmaster Karen Moran is
still seeing that the postal
needs of this growing
community are met.
Karen recently took over
the postmaster position from
Rita Cosson. Rita had been
postmaster for 30 years. "I
would like to see the post


office stay just like it is,"
Karen said. Karen also
wanted people to know that
her location is a full service
post office.
The inside of the building
is truly a picture of the past.
Along with the few post office
boxes is a barred window
that screams of times gone
by.
Karen splits her time
between Point Washington
and Santa Rosa Beach Post


; .......... ...



THE BARRED WINDOW inside the post office.


Office due to the limited
hours. The Point Washington
Post Office is open from 10
a.m. to noon, Monday


through Saturday and post
office boxes can be accessed
from 10 a. m. to 2:20 p.m. on
the same days.


Rip Current awareness Week: June 4th- 10


With thousands of Walton
County residents and tour-
ists preparing to enjoy the
summer at the beach, the
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners is
supporting national efforts to
raise awareness about deadly
rip currents.
In addition to offering the
84 square mile area of south
Walton fire protection and
emergency medical services,
the South Walton Fire Dis-
trict now heads a team of life-
guards whose mission it is to
provide a quality open water
and beach safety program
through education, preven-
tion and emergency re
sponse. The lifeguards hay
passed a rigorous training
program certified by the U.S
Surf and Lifesaving Associa
tion.
Lifeguards are now on duty
from 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM a!
Inlet Beach, Santa Clara
Gulf View Heights, Ed
Walline, Dune Allen and
Miramar Beach public ac-
cesses.
Rip currents are channels
of fast moving water that can
pull even the most seasoned
swimmer away from shore.
Nationally, more than 100
fatalities occur every year
from rip currents-rmore
than shark bites, tornadoes
or hurricanes-and more
than 80 percent of surf beach
rescues are attributed to rip
currents, according to the
United States Lifesaving As-
sociation.
Rip current speeds % ary.
Average speeds are 1-2 feet
per second, but they have
been measured as fast as a
feet per second-faster than
an Olympic swimmer! They
can be very narrow or more
than 50 yards wide. Some-
times rip currents end just
beyond the line of breaking
waves; however, they may,
continue to pull hundreds of
yards offshore. It is impor-
tant to remember that rip
currents do not pull people
under the water-they pull
people away from shore
Beachgoers are urged to
keep an eye out for signs of a
possible rip current, a c ha n-
nel of churning, choppy wa-
ter, a difference in \uater
color, a line of foam, sea weed
or debris moving seaw ard. or
a break in the incoming n ,ave
pattern.

If swimmers get cau ght in
a rip current, first and fore-
most, stay calm. Do not try
to fight the current. S'..im-
mers can escape the current
by swimming in a direction
following the slihoeline
When free of the current,
swim at an angle-away
from the current-toward
shore. If unable to escape
by swimming, float or tread
water. When the current
weakens, swim at an angle
away from the current to-


ward shore. If at any time
swimmers feel they will be
unable to reach shore, draw
attention, face the shore, call
or wave for help.
When going into the water
swimmers should, above all,
know how to swim. Also re-
member to never swim alone
and for maximum safety,
swim near a lifeguard. Obey
all instructions and orders
from lifeguards arid "if in
doubt, don't go out!"
Don't become a victim
while trying to help someone
else!
Many people have died in
efforts to rescue rip current


victims. If beachgoers wit-
ness someone being pulled
out by a rip current, get help
from a lifeguard. If a life-
guard is not present, yell in-


structions on how to escape.
If possible, throw the rip cur-
rent victim something that
floats. Call 9-1-1 for further
assistance.

Memorial
weekend saw


Day
tour-


ists streaming in
from all over the na-
tion to the beaches of
south Walton. It is
the hope of the tour-
ism boards through-
out the state that the
influx will continue
throughout the sum-
mer.

While putting on the Gulf
Place Bike Fest this past
weekend, I watched as hun-
dreds of bikers poured into
the resort community from
all over the South. American
flags were attached to motor-
cycles that sported plates
from Tennessee, Alabama,
Mississippi, Georgia and
throughout the Florida Pan-
handle..
,It was sort of nice to see
traffic back once again on
CR- 30A as the first real tour-
ist weekend kicked into high
gear. Restaurants were on an
hour to two-hour wait and
gas lines seemed to be end-
less as motorists were filling
up and finding their vacation
destination for the next sev-
eral days. It was like noth-
ing had ever happened to our
beaches or to our community
due to storms from the past
two years.
In a press release last
week, the state is predicting
a slowdown in tourism traf-
fic this year due to the high
potential of hurricanes and
crippling gas prices. Despite
the fact that our area is at a
very low risk of having a
major storm slam into its
banks, it is the risk of im-
pacting the states above us
that has tourism observers
nervous.
Memorial Day weekend
was once again beautiful,
despite temperatures in the
upper 80s and low 90s. It

was the first time many tour-
ists, as well as locals, hit the
waters to soak up some of the
warm salt water or dive into
a pool that has lain dormant
for more than seven months.
But what happens now
that June 1 is here and the
hurricane season officially
begins? Does this mean traf-
fic will come to a halt and
reservations for hotels,
homes and condos will see a
sharp decrease in rentals and
an increase in cancellations?
Most people in the area say
that tourists will visit the
pristine waters of the Gulf of
Mexico, even if we break
away from the rest of the
country and become a third-
world island. It is just a fact
that Florida has hurricanes
and people have just learned
to work around them,
whether it's a vacation, a
wedding or other outdoor
event.
Promoters and event orga-
nizers seem to always get
their events out of the way in
April and May when the
weather is, for the most part,
tolerable. But already this
year, storms and high winds
on the coast have cancelled
some events and brought di-
saster to others.
Weather services across
the board say that the
Florida Emerald Coast is in
a low threat of hurricanes
this year for the first time
since 2001. This gives a sense
of relief to many, but the gas
price issue caused a few
thousands not to be able to
afford a vacation in this area.
As we all know, Walton
County thrives on the tour-
ism dollar and when there
are no tourists, there are no
dollars.
Those same experts that
say that price and inclement
weather affect Florida tour-
ism, also say this area of
Florida is not really affected
by the gas prices, due to the
financial means it takes to
stay, buy or rent a home or
condo in our county.
As the months proceeds

and we await the next big
holiday push around July
Fourth, it will be interesting
to see how tourism is affected
by threats of the weather and
see just how high gas prices
will continue to rise over the
next several summer
months.
It is the beaches, resorts
and cultural events that
bring the tourists to this area
and it will be up to us to con-
tinue the same great services
and upscale amenities, that
will keep them coming back,
despite the threat of a hur-
ricane or two.
