Walton County Jail



offers tour to media


AT HIS DESK is Freeport mayor Mickey Marse.




Freeport mayor


balancing


expansion and


preservation


By Bruce Collier
Freeport mayor Mickey
Marse recalls when a young
person in the Freeport area
had three choices when'
reaching working age.
"You could work at Eglin
Air Force Base, or on a tug
boat, or you could leave."
Marse chose the latter,
moving to Atlanta, where he
eventually saved enough to
return to his childhood home.
Marse wanted his children
to know the area where their
father had grown up. Even
so, he acknowledges that
much has changed in this
area.
"Destin is not what we
knew growing up," he said.
As mayor, Marse says he
has the full backing of the
city. council in his desire for
Freeport "to remain Free-
port. To keep its identity."
Faced with impending im-
provements such as the re-
cently-christened Owl's Head
development, Marse says
that he has had to talk to de-
velopers, before things "get
too far."
One way to help preserve
the identity of the area, says
Marse, is in choice of names.
"We want [development
names] to show what we're
about," said Marse, adding
that developments in this
area of Walton County don't
need the kind of"crap" names
borrowed from south Florida
developments.
Developers, he says, will
"twist and turn" but are in-
clined to be accommodating.
Marse recalls his disap-
pointment with efforts in the
past to preserve Freeport's
integrity, but remains hope-
ful.
He considers Hammock
Bay, for example, as a "pretty
subdivision."
"It was done right."
Marse attended the Owl's
Head christening, and spoke
briefly. "The rest of the world
has found us," he said upon
that occasion.
As for south Walton
County's famous beaches,
Marse is blunt.
"You can't enjoy them any-
more."
Beach access was aban-
doned, little by little, he says,
and years of gulfside build-
ing has not only impeded the
view, it has interfered with
the natural dune formation
process.
Marse is not among the


many attracted to build on
the Gulf.
He estimates that "95 per-
cent of our forefathers would
never have lived on the
beach," citing hurricanes
and other waterside hazards.
"It's sort of weird, but you
couldn't have given my fa-
ther beach property."
As for his own backyard,
Marse expressed his con-
cerns for the future of
Freeport's working people,
and the need for moderately
priced, affordable homes.
"Property prices are
through the roof. A school-
teacher can't afford a house
at Owl's Head or Hammock
Bay," he said.
Despite the windfall that
resulted for some landown-
ers when property prices
rose, Marse laments that the
area's young people may be
getting "priced out of here."
With that, Owl's Head and
similar developments will be
populated with people from
somewhere else. .
Freeport will turn into a
"different kind of city," he
said.
Whatever kind of city
Freeport is or becomes,
Marse is confident that wa-
ter will not be a problem in
the area, with the well foot-
print "very wide."
The main system, he
notes, runs to Portland to the
west, Owl's Head to the
north, Bruce to the east, and
Choctawhatchee Bay to the
south. A new well system is
being considered on Highway
81, ,ith as many as six new"
wells to be built.
, Marse believes that the
area's utility entities are be-
ginning to cooperate and get
along, and interconnection is
going to happen "at some
juncture."
In the meantime, Freeport
"has one of the finest water
systems in the country."
In addition to luxury de-
velopments like Owl's Head,
Marse would like to see in-
dustry come to the area,
something more stable than
just tourism, which "comes
and goes."
He hopes that t'. exist-
ence of a "40-hou a week"
kind of industry would stem
the trend of young people
leaving the Freeport area to
make a better living.
"People [here] may be a
little backwards," he says,
"but it's our way of life."

Peter Brown Construction
of Tallahassee and the Wal-
ton County Sheriff's Office
(WCSO) threw open the
doors of the partially-con-
structed Walton County Jail
and Sheriff's Administration
Facility to the media on June
6.
On May 23 Walton
County's Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) voted
to proceed with what would
have been the second phase
of the project, construction of
a second pod to accommodate
a total of 582 beds, according
to a fact sheet distributed
before the tour.
Conducting the tour was
Walton County Construction
Manager Rick Millard, who
began with a description of
the sally port, the initial en-
try point for persons commit-
ted to the facility.
Booking begins at the
port, where incoming in-
mates are processed, and
where preliminary medical
analysis is made, ranging
from substance abuse or ad-
diction to high blood pres-
sure, diabetes, or other medi-
cal conditions.
The facility will also have
a 20-bed capacity hospital,
with six "isolation rooms," a
doctor, and up to six nurses
on staff, in order to provide
around the clock medical
care.
Detainees' initial appear-
ance before a judge can be
facilitated in the new jail,
which will offer a videotape
access between judges and
arrestees.
A visiting room is under
construction, as well as
rooms for certain judicial
hearings to be conducted at
the jail.
The new facility will em-
ploy electronic controls,
which Walton County Sher-
iff Ralph Johnson hopes will
reduce manpower demands.
A number of rooms have
been designated as "multi-
purpose" rooms, for storage,
training facilities, or other
uses.
The kitchen includes a
walk-in cooler the size of the
kitchen currently in use at
Walton County Jail.
Access, transport, and
communication between
pods is controlled for security,
and to separate female and
male inmates, as well as ju-
veniles.
Maintenance workers can
also have access to repair jail
facilities without having to
make contact with inmates.

The tour included a look at
several cells, ranging from
single occupant (for "less so-
ciable" inmates) to multiple
occupant cells.
The cells are "modular,"
meaning that they are pre-


cast reinforced concrete, pre-
fitted with stainless steel
beds, toilets, and sinks.
All gates are electronically
controlled, and each segment
of the facility has indepen-
dent lockdown capability,
plus an emergency capacity
that would enable the jail to
maintain power in the event
of an area power outage.
That, and the thickness of
the walls, makes the new jail
one of the safest places to be
during and after a hurricane.
The new facility will be
fully accessible to the
handicapped. Contracts to
supply water, sewer and gas

A wild

kingdom

in Bonifay
By LEIGH STRICKLAND

Plans for an animal park in
Bonifay will move forward
now that the land for the
project has been purchased.
The Holmes County Devel-
opment Commission met
with representatives from
the Fowler Center for
Wildlife Education on
Wednesday, May 31, at the
Chamber of Commerce office
in Bonifay.
Chairman of the commis-
sion, Robert Dinkins, was
the first to sign the papers
that would turn the land
over to the Center. He was
admittedly nervous, but said
to the crowd that was present
to witness the transaction,
"With your support, I will go
ahead and sign this paper."
The project has been in the
works for three years already
and is expected to be part of
a number of developments in
the area. The development
commission expects it to cre-
ate job opportunities and to
generate revenue for Bonifay
and surrounding communi-
ties.
Bill Hardy of the Fowler
Center described the
process as having "been
through ups and downs." He
called the animal park the
highest and best use of the
site. It was Jim Fowler him-
self, Hardy said, who
determined that this site was
where he wanted to place his
new animal park. Fowler is
best known for being Marlin
Perkins' faithful sidekick on
Mutual of Omaha's Wild
Kingdom.
A deposit check for $50,000
was presented by the center
to the development commis-
sion as "earnest money."

Tortoises saved by a hair


By Sara Comander, Walton
County Public Information
Coordinator.
Five and a half miles north
of DeFuniak Springs, a back-
hoe clears a patch of land
near the future Walton
County Justice facility. The
14,00,0 pound vehicle is
slowly and meticulously dig-
ging out burrows of the infa-
mous gopher tortoise.
Six tortoises had already
been extracted and twenty to
thirty are still expected to be
found in the marked burrows
on the property. They are be-
ing relocated to the NokusTe
Plantation just south of
Freeport, where they will be
properly managed and kept


safe from developers and
other threats.
Ray Ashton of the Gopher
Tortoise Conservation Initia-
tive oversees the relocation
effort. For the past ten
years, Ashton has studied
gopher tortoises and initiated
various conservation pro-
grams dealing with reptiles
and amphibians and sustain-
able use.
The Initiative program be-
gan four years ago when
Ashton was approached by
M.C. Davis, local business-
man and well-known land
conservationist, to get a pro-
active gopher tortoise conser-
vation program underway
that would work with private


landowners and citizens to
encourage their involvement
in conservation of uplands
and gopher tortoises. Davis
established the 55,000 acre
Nokuse Plantation-one of
the Panhandle's largest pri-
vate conservation projects-
and the Florida Wildlife
Commission (FWC) desig-
nated Nokuse as an official
gopher tortoise relocation
site for the entire state.

Land development poses
such a threat to. the gopher
tortoise population because
they have an extremely long
lifespan and require many
different species of plants for
food to survive. It is illegal to

to Walton Plantation


take, possess, transport, or
sell gopher tortoises, or their
eggs, except as authorized by
the FWC. Permits from the
FWC are required to relocate
tortoises. The FWC also
grants take permits, allowing
developers to bulldoze gopher
tortoise colonies in exchange
for fees to protect the species
in the future.
Walton County had to ei-
ther pay the FWC about
$1,000 per tortoise to destroy
the colony or go through the
process of relocation before
any construction could be-
gin. In choosing to relocate
the tortoises, the county is
spending about $16,000, sav-
ing roughly one-third of what
it would cost to 'take' the tor-
toises.
The county not only saved
money, but is helping to pro-
tect a threatened species that
is vital to the ecosystem of
this area.

.* "Tree farms can be more
fun than just watching trees
grow,!' said Henry Maclin.
Maclin and several partners
,bought nearly 7,000 acres
just 45 minutes north of the
Mid-Bay Bridge last year to
create an association of tree
farms'known as Walton- Plan-
tation. Recreational activi-
ties can coexist with timber
management and harvest-
ing, said Maclin.
Nearly 100 Destin area
families have bought into the
idea of mixing recreational
activities like sporting clays,
motorcross, ATVs, horseback
riding, birding, and garden-
ing with a 25-year tree grow-
ing cycle.
Tiniber roads haveobeen
named and marked with
road'signs which even have
small solar lights. All of the
owner's parcels are less than
25 acres each and are man-
aged under an association


similar to what has been
done in Europe for over 50
years.
"Most of us have seen im-
ages of Europeanforests. You
don't get that look from many
big corporate timber owners,
it more likely comes when a
lot of people regularly visit
their trees and combine ac-
tivities of farming, recreation
and social interaction,", he
said.
Maclin understands the
confusion his group has
caused Walton County Plan-
ning officials, but says plans
are underway to communi-
cate better.
A development order appli-
cation depicting 118 tree
farms was recently submit-
ted to the county. Each tree
farm owner is encouraged to
build a cottage and other an-
cillary structures.
Walton Plantation is hop-
ing to invite the general pub-


lic and future tree farmers
each fall to the Plantation for
an educational retreat for a
two-day forum for sharing
the best of the ATFS's con-
cepts for small scale saw mill-
ing, timber frame construc-
tion, lake construction, horse/
walk trails, timber owner-
ship, gardening and recre-
ation.

Working through the
220,000 member Florida For-
estry Association and the 9.9
million member American'
Tree Farm System, Planta-
tion representatives will
work with county officials
and future tree farm owners
as to the economic, esthetic,
and recreation benefits of a
tree farm.

tact Phil Gornicki at Florida

What really matters when it comes to
planning a funeral? Is it who has the largest
facility or the biggest staff? Or, is it a funeral
home that offers the very best care for your
loved one, all the guidance and support
you need and a variety of service options?
We think that better service makes a better
funeral home. Come see lor ourself.

Fi D LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Charlie Crist

PERSONAL COMMENTS t
comting to


EDITOR'S COMMENT


By RON KELLEY


DeFuniak Springs


Vote early, vote often!


The season is just around the corner. That's right, political
season is set to begin again soon. This is a grand old time in
Walton Ciouti ly
I have lived all over the South, in towns big and small, and
I've never seen anyplace that enjoys a good political season
like Walton County.
There'll be barbecues, fish frys and a forest of those little
political road signs that seem to dot the landscape (that ev-
eryone claims has no effect on their choice of candidate).
There'll be rallies, forums, meet-and-greets, and more than
a few backroom deals laced with fervent prayers and whis-
pered promises.
There will also be a plethora of television commercials,
radio commercials and newspaper ads, all professing to tell
the truth about the candidate (or the candidate's opponent).
There'll be people knocking on doors, Internet spam and spam
delivered by your postal carrier (which I wish I could delete
as easily as the online junk).
Hugs will be given, hands will be shook and babies will be
kissed.
I'm telling you, friends, I can almost smell it in the air.
One thing I hope I don't smell is the stink that rises off bad
campaign ads, the kind that are dripping with venom, full of
negativity, half-truths and innuendo. Two years ago, we saw
some ads that were so nasty, the state investigations are just
now ending. I only hope this year's candidates will remem-
ber that they can't sling mud without getting it all over them-
selves, too.
It looks like there will be plenty of candidates for a lively
race. I always hate to see politicians go in unchallenged.
Mostly because I've rarely seen one that deserved such an
honor.
The elephant people are squaring off against the donkey
people and, as always, there are only two parties to attend
this year. Attendees will wear red or blue. Although I've never
registered as an independent, I've always felt that America
should be able to accommodate more than two political par-
ties. From a purely philosophical standpoint, I think most of
the offices we vote for are simply too important for us to
have no more than two choices. Too often, especially at the
state and federal level, I've looked at a ballot and been forced
to choose the 'lesser of two evils.' That seems a poor way to
choose a candidate that can alter the very fabric of Ameri-
can life.


Editor:
Week before last there were hundreds of representatives
attending the Eglin 2015 Conference. The BRAC issue was
covered from every facet concerning impact on surround-
ing communities. Anytime you get about 15,000 new resi-
dents moving into an area over a relative short period of
time, that's impact!
Some months ago Commissioner Ro Cuchens proposed
the Walton County Commissioners pursue the reopening
of Basin Bayou Park. This was formerly a state park lo-
cated on Eglin AFB property that was closed in 1984. At
the time, it was offered to the county but the offer was de-
clined. Fast forward 22 years. Times have changed. The
park is seriously needed to serve current residents and most
certainly the incoming BRAC folks.
At the Eglin 2015 Conference, is was uplifting to learn
the Air Force is seriously considering the Basin Bayou Park
request by the County Commission. It may take a while
for a positive conclusion to be reached, but kudo's are in
order for Commissioner Cuchens, the BCC, the Basin Bayou
Committee, and the Air Force for working together to bring
about a new Basin Bayou Park on Choctawhatchee Bay.

Unfortunately, the people who have the power to change
the system have no intention of doing so. Much like elimi-
nating run-off races for primaries, the present two-party sys-
tem protects the incumbents and gives them every advan-
tage over challengers. The problem is obvious and the solu-
tion is easy to see, it's simply that so few people seem to have
the courage of their convictions. We voters are also part of
the problem. We are much too willing to swallow the wa-
tered-down platitudes spoon-fed to us by shallow politicians
and their shameless spin-doctors with their market research
graphs and polls.
For instance, I have long felt that partisan politics have no
value at the county level, because county officials never have
occasion to vote on national party issues. Want action on
abortion, gay marriages, class-size amendments or off-shore
drilling? You'll have to go to Tallahassee or Washington D.C.
Your county commissioner, sheriff, clerk of court, tax collec-
tor, supervisor of elections or property appraiser, can't help
you with any of those things.
For this reason, I believe that all county-level posts should
be non-partisan. City elections already are and so are school
board seats. The rest of the county offices ought to be able to
follow suit. Of course, that would require a grass-roots effort
by citizens and county officials working together to convince
the state legislators to make the change in the name of com-
mon sense.
Whoops! I think I just discovered the fatal flaw in the whole
idea.
Oh well, that's no reason not to enjoy the upcoming Walton
County political season. You know what they say, vote early
and vote often!


Editor,
It is time the mothers and fathers of members in our armed
forces stand up and be heard. We are the only ones that can
and will defend our sons and daughters in the military.
Retired officers and some high-ranking U.S. Congressmen,
senators are spineless and are sympathetic with the insur-
gents and the Iraqi people who demonstrate and celebrate
when our sons and daughters are mutilated and or killed
by roadside bombs and enemy fire.
Anyone that witnesses and survives the mutilation and
or death of their comrades cannot be expected tobe jubilant
or anything else but mad, as. hell....,. ... ..... .:,
The insurgents have no code of ethics or respect of human
life. After all, they are only mutilating and killing infidels.
I believe the mothers and fathers of our young soldiers
should encourage their sons and daughters to leave the mili-
tary and let the sons and daughters of our do-good politi-
cians and bleeding hearts (for everyone but our military)
fight the battles of the good old USA.

Editor,
At 7:00 p.m. on November 21st of 2005 our lives and the
life of our son were changed forever. We received "the call"
that every parent dreads, that our precious son, Angus
Douglass, age 23, had been in a car wreck and was taken by
helicopter to Flowers Hospital in Dothan, AL. We knew noth-
ing of his condition.
We fell to our knees and prayed that God would spare our
son. Our drive to Dothan was a blur and we found our son
in the emergency room. His injuries were significant. He
had traumatic brain injury, a collapsed lung, and numerous
other smaller injuries. The neurosurgeon told us that he had
significant brain injury and worse, brain stem injuries and
was not expected to live and if he did survive, that he would
be a vegetable the rest of his life.
He was on life support and seeing all those tubes breath-
ing for him and feeding him we were distressed but knew
that God was in control. The story could end there, but God
in His mercy had other plans. Angus was in a coma and
would remain in this state for another five months.
The hospital sought a place to send Angus as there was
nothing more they could do. Emerald Coast Hospice agreed
to help and Angus was sent to Parthenon Healthcare of Crest-
view in late January of this year. Immediately Angus be-
came their favorite son. We were amazed at the attention he
received and the dedication of the staff and owner. The
nurses immediately began to tell us that Angus would come
back though we saw no improvement. We visited every day,
held his hand and prayed with him. Prayer groups from all
over the Panhandle of Florida, Montgomery, AL (our former
home), and even overseas began praying for Angus.
Good Friday of this year was a turning point in this story
of courage, love and commitment. This was the day that
God in His mercy performed a miracle. Angus came out of
his coma and began responding. Since that time Angus' trach
was removed and he is talking, breathing on his own, and
eating. All of this without any treatment.
The staff of Emerald Coast Hospice and Parthenon
Healthcare have our undying gratitude for their care, love,
and concern they have show for our son. These two organi
zations are something for Crestview and the entire state of
Florida to be proud of. Their tireless efforts to bring kind-
ness to each and every patient in the nursing home has been
observed by my wife and I on a daily basis. We can only say
thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your help in
giving us back our son.
Angus is moving on this Tuesday (through the tireless ef-
forts of Parthenon staff) to West Florida Rehab Hospital in
Pensacola and then back home. God's Word says "that when
you do this for the least of them you do it for me." In our
high-tech, young oriented, self-centered society, there seems
to be no place for our elderly and infirm, but believe me there
is at Parthenon Healthcare of Crestview and Emerald Coast
Hospice.

A significant part of being
a youth ambassador for De-
Funiak Springs or Walton
County is becoming ac-
quainted with the various
people and organizations
that create this community.

Recently, the Walton
County and DeFuniak


Springs queens attended
meetings for the DeFuniak
Springs City Council and
Walton County Commission-
ers to introduce themselves
to members of these legisla-
tive boards and share their
goals to be active in the com-
munity during their year
reigns.

Scholarship available


for Bright Futures


OWC recipients


More than 1,000 local stu -
4ents who currently qualify,
for a 75 percent tuition schol-
arship under the. Florida
Lottery's Bright Futures pro-
gram will now receive a 100
percent award to cover all
tuition and fees when they
enroll at Okaloosa-Walton
Colleges; thanks to recent
action by the Florida Legis-
lature and Governor Bush.
Currently, 716 OWC stu-
dents are part of the 75 per-
cent Medallion Scholars
group who will now be eli-
gible for the award to cover
100 percent of tuition and
fees when they enroll for Fall
classes.
Also included will be hun-
dreds of recent high school
graduates in Okaloosa and
Walton County who will re-
ceive notification from the
state's Department of Educa-
tion in the coming weeks of
their status as Medallion
Scholarship recipients and
the availability of the new
100 percent tuition award.
It is anticipated that ap-
proximately 600 recent high
school graduates from the
local area will qualify as Me-
dallion Scholars once final
grades and test scores are
evaluated and sent to the
state.
The new bill becomes law
July 1 and will go into effect
beginning with the Fall 2006
term, providing the 100 per-
cent tuition and fees for Me-
dallion Scholarship recipi-
ents who are enrolled in any
associate degree program at
a state community college.
The state's Medallion
scholarship will continue to
cover 75 percent of tuition
and fees for students who at-
tend a state university.
"This is a wonderful way
the state is strengthening the
2+2 system where students
receive the first two years of
a four-year degree at their
local college, then transfer to
the university level," said Dr.
Bob Richburg, OWC presi-
dent.
Richburg called the new
100 percent scholarship
award a "win-win" for the
state and students who
choose to begin their studies
at a community college, since
research shows that the in-


creased award 'will pay for
itself and save the state
money due to the lower tu-;
ition rates at the state's pub-
lic community and junior col-
legis.
"More students will now be
able to attend Okaloosa-Wal-
ton College with all tuition
fees covered so they may
work toward their associate's
degree," said Richburg. "The
cost of tuition and fees at
OWC for a typical full-time
student is about $1,700 an-
nually, so this new bill will
provide parents and students
with substantial savings."
OWC received $671,609 in
tuition reimbursement from
the Florida Lottery for its
Medallion Scholars for the
2005-2006 school year. The
average student award was
$938. Medallion scholarship
recipients make up 89% of all
Bright Futures scholarship
recipients who attend OWC.
The Florida Medallion
Scholars Award is one of
three awards that makes up
the Florida Bright Futures
Scholarship Program. In
1997, the Florida Legislature
created this scholarship pro-


gram funded by the Florida
Lottery to. recognize aca-
demic achievements of high
school students.
Even with its bachelor's de-
gree status, Okaloosa-Walton
College is still part of
Florida's system of 28 public
community colleges. Thus,
those who attend OWC will
qualify for the new program
that is only for community
college students. OWC offers
2-year associate of arts de-
grees that transfer to upper-
division universities nation-
wide and more than 25 dif-
ferent associate of science
and applied science degrees
for professional and technical
studies.
Medallion scholarship stu-
dents enrolled in any OWC
associate degree program
will qualify for the new 100
percent free tuition award.

tures Scholarship changes

cial aid specialist, at 729-
5370. For more information

lege call 729-6922 or go

Martinez encourages veterans to be watchful of financial records


Senator Mel Martinez (R-
FL) urged veterans to be-
come informed of the situa-
tion involving the Depart-
ment of Veterans Affairs (VA)
where the names, social se-
curity numbers, and dates of
birth for up to 26.5 million
veterans were stolen.
"In the Information Age, in-
formation security is para-
mount. This is a serious se-
curity breach," said Mar-
tinez. "I encourage the VA to
take immediate action to as-


sure veterans steps are being
taken to safeguard their in-
formation and that it will not
be compromised in the fu-
ture."
Senator Martinez encour-
aged veterans and their fami-
lies to be extra vigilant and
to carefully monitor bank
statements, credit card state-
ments and any statements
relating to recent financial
transactions. If there is any
unusual or suspicious activ-
ity, they should report it im-


mediately to the financial in-
stitution involved and con-
tact the Federal Trade Com-
mission for further guidance.
The VA has announced
they will send individual no-
tification letters to veterans
and has set up a call center
and Web site, http://
www.firstgov.gov, for veter-
ans who believe their infor-
mation has been misused.
That toll free number is 1-
800-FED INFO (1-800-333-
4636). The government said


CELL FOR MANY multiple occupancy modular cell.


the call center will operate
from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. (EDT),
Monday-Saturday as long as
it is needed.
Frequently Asked Ques-
tions:
I'm a veteran, how can I
tell if my information was
compromised?
At this point there is no evi-
dence that any missing data
has been used illegally. How-
ever, the Department of Vet-
erans Affairs is asking all
veterans to be extra vigilant
and to carefully monitor
bank statements, credit card
statements and any state-
ments relating to recent fi-
nancial transactions. If any-
one notices unusual or sus-
picious activity, you. should
report it immediately to the
financial institution involved
and contact the Federal
Trade Commission for fur-
ther guidance.
What is the earliest date at
which suspicious activity
might have occurred due to
this data breach?
The information was stolen
from an employee of the De-
partment of Veterans Affairs
during the month of May. If
the data has been misused or
otherwise used to commit
fraud or identity theft crimes,
it is likely that veterans may
notice suspicious activity
during the month of May.'
I haven't noticed any sus-
picious activity in my finan-
cial statements, but what can
I do to protect myself and
prevent being victimized by
credit card fraud or identity
theft?
The Department of Veter-,
ans Affairs strongly recom-
mends that veterans closely
monitor their financial state-
ments and visit the Depart-
ment of Veterans Affairs spe-
cial website on this,
www.firstgov.gov or call 1-
800-FED-INFO (1-800-333-
4636).
Should I reach out to my
financial institutions or will
the Department of Veterans
Affairs do this for me?
The Department of Veter-


ans Affairs does not believe
that it is necessary to contact
financial institutions or can-
cel credit cards and bank ac-
counts, unless you detect sus-
picious activity.
Where should I report sus-
picious or unusual activity?
The Federal Trade Com-
mission recommends the fol-
lowing four steps if suspi-
cious activity is detected.
Step 1 Contact the fraud
department of one of the
three major credit bureaus:
*Equifax: 1-800-525-6285;
www.equifax.com; P.O. Box
740241, Atlanta, GA 30374-
0241,
*Experian: 1-888-EX-
PERIAN (397-3742); www.
experian.com; P.O. Box 9532,
Allen, Texas 75013
*TransUnion: 1-800-680-
7289; www.transunion.com;
Fraud Victim Assistance Di-
vision, P.O. Box 6790, Fuller-
ton, CA 92834-6790
Step 2 Close any accounts
that have been, tampered-
with or opened fraudulently.
Step 3 File a police report
with the local police or the po-
lice in the community where
the identity theft took place.
Step 4 File a complaint
with the Federal Trade Com-
mission by using the FTC's
Identity Theft Hotline by
telephone: 1-877-438-4338,
online at www.consumer.gov/
idtheft, or by mail at Identity
Theft Clearinghouse, Federal
Trade Commission, 600
Pennsylvania Avenue NW,
Washington DC 20580.
I know the Department of
Veterans Affairs maintains
my health records electroni-
cally; was this information
also compromised?
No electronic medical
records were compromised.
The data lost is primarily
limited to an individual's
name, date of birth,, social
security number, in some
cases their spouse's informa-
tion, as well as some disabil-
ity ratings.
However, this information
could still be of potential use
to identity thieves and we


recommend that all veterans
be extra vigilant in monitor-
ing for signs of potential iden-
tity theft or misuse of this in-
formation.
What is the Department of
Veterans Affairs doing to in-
sure that this does not hap-
pen again?
The Department of Veter-
ans Affairs is working with
the President's Identity Theft
Task Force, the Department
of Justice and the Federal
Trade Commission to inves-
tigate this data breach and
to develop safeguards
against similar incidents.
The Department. of Veter-
ans Affairs has directed all
VA employees complete the
"VA Cyber Security Aware-
ness Training Course" and
complete the separate "Gen-
eral Employee Privacy
Awareness Course" by June
30, 2006.
In addition, the Depart-
ment of Veterans Affairs will
immediately be conducting
an inventory and review of
all current positions requir-
ing access to sensitive VA
data and require all employ-
ees requiring access to sen-
sitive VA data to undergo an
updated National Agency
Check and Inquiries (NACI)
and/or a Minimum Back-
ground Investigation (MBI)
depending on the level of ac-
cess required by the respon-
sibilities associated with
their position.
Appropriate law enforce-
ment agencies, including the
Federal Bureau of Investiga-
tion and the Inspector Gen-
eral of the Department of
Veterans Affairs, have
launched full-scale investiga-
tions into this matter.
Where can I get further,
up-to-date information?
The Department of Veter-
ans Affairs has set up a spe-
cial website and a toll-free
telephone number for veter-
ans which features up-to-
date news and information.
Visitwww.firstgov.gov or call
1-800-FED-INFO (333-
4636).

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 Thusday 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.
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 in water.
"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis. ,
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/I) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million pprtsy ,.weight of the water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pg/I)- one part by weight of analyte to 1 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 necessaryfor
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 bur 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 sample! 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, bacteriaa 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.

Wiliwams/Starnes wed

exchange wedding vows

Beautiful Lake Eufaula was the backdrop for the Sunday
afternoon wedding of Carol Williams and John Ocie Starnes.
The wedding was held at the home of the groom's brother-
in-law and sister, Patrick and Janet Hurst. An outside wed-
ding seemed appropriate with the sun glistening across the
lake as it rippled ashore. Large grandfather oaks and dog-
wood trees laced with Spanish moss formed a naturally deco-
rated setting. The walkway was lined with ferns, palms and
candle light. The vows were exchanged under a wedding
arbor of beautiful hanging seasonal flowers in the bride's
colors of purple, burgundy and creams. Carol was escorted
to her groom by her brother, Chris Williams. Pastors Rev.
and Mrs. Wayne Wood performed the ceremony as the sun
began sinking low across the waters edge. An anointment
for the happy couple along with vows, rings and prayers
exchanged, soon found the emerging husband and wife mak-
ing their announcement as Mr. and Mrs. John Starnes to
the happy guests.
The ceremony was followed immediately by the reception.
Everyone moved indoors for the cutting of the cake, a three-
tiered creation of cream colored butter cream frosting, ac-
cented with ribbons of burgundy frosting to accentuate the
rising layers of butter pound cake. The couple happily fed
each other a small taste to start. Toasting went out to the
couple and well wishes for a wonderful future.
An array of finger sandwiches, fruits, meats, cheeses and
other delicacies were served by Mrs. Joyce Szilvasy, Mrs.
Janet Hurst, and Ms. Judy Starnes, sisters of the groom.
Decorations for the wedding were created by Mrs. Eve
Starnes, sister-in-law, all hostesses of the wedding and re-
ception.
A small group of 35 enjoyed the lovely ceremony includ-
ing honored guests of the bride, her mother, Mrs. Maarbar
Williams and maternal grandmother, Juanita McMullin, and
the groom's mother, Mrs. Mable Starnes. Serving the bride
as attendants were the maid of honor, Ms. Amy Long, and
as her bridesmaid, Miss Candice Gilley, her daughter.
Serving the groom as best man was his brother, Jimmy
Ray Starnes, and his groomsman was Chris Williams, the
bride's brother. Other friends of the family attending the
wedding from out-of-town were Ricky and Dawn Spann, of
Tallahassee, FL.
After a brief honeymoon, the couple plans to make their
home in Dothan, AL.


JIMMY AND DORIS DAVIDSON at H&M on 49th anni-
versary.

Davidsons celebrate anniversarTy1
Forty nine years ago, Jimmy and Doris Davidson appeared
before Joe Dan Trottman at the Walton County Courthouse
and exchanged wedding vows. After the ceremony, the couple
went to H&M Hot Dog for lunch. Jimmy remembers a ha*-
burger costs twenty cents and a hot dog was a nickel or a
dime.
On Thursday, May 25, the Davidsons returned to H&Mto
enjoy a forty-ninth anniversary lunch. Burgers, drinks ad
chips were about ten dollars this time Jimmy said.
The Davidsons have raised five children, have nine grand-
children and three great grandchildren. 0
Doris said she would do everything over again.

OWC at 100 College Boule-
vard and is easily accessible

The symphony is celebrat-
ing its 20th anniversary as
part of the NFSO's 2006-2007
concert season. InApril 1987,
John Leatherwood, a music
instructor at then Okaloosa-
Walton Junior College, an-
nounced plans to establish
the Northwest Florida Sym-


phony Orchestra and his de-
sire for the orchestra to be
sponsored by OWJC. Leath-
erwood discussed these plans
with founding OWJC presi-
dent Dr. J.E. McCracken in
the final months of
McCracken's tenure. Then,
on August 17, 1987, the first
day that Dr. James R.
Richburg assumed the presi-
dency of OWJC, Leather-
wood met with Richburg to
ask permission to organize
the NFSO under the auspices
of college.
When OWJC became
OWCC in the spring of 1988,
the orchestra's name was
changed to the Northwest
Florida Symphony Orchestra
of Okaloosa-Walton Commu-
nity College and the NFSO
name subsequently changed
again when OWCC became
OWC in,2004.

In January 1997, the
NFSO was the first group to
perform in the new Arts Cen-
ter, christening the state-of-
the-art cultural and instruc-
tional facility. The symphony
continues to present its per-
formances in the 1,650 seat
main theater of this specially
designed arts venue. Each
concert, the center's main
stage is outfitted with a cus-
tomized orchestra shell de-
signed specifically for the
NFSO.
The talented professional
musicians who perform with
the NFSO of OWC come from
across the greater panhandle
region and many of the
symphony's guest artists
have an international repu-
tation. There are presently
approximately 60 active
members in the NFSO of
OWC.

The orchestra has per-
formed continuously each
season.since 1987, providing
cultural programs to thou-
sands of area residents in its
20-year history.

people that are tired of going to church and leaving the same way you
came in (hungry and hurting)? Do you feel like you are so far away from
God, in a time that you need Him the most? That maybe if you could just
get to Him, so many things in your life would change? Have you been hurt
by so called Christians, and now you won't even go into the house of God?
Do you have so many questions and no answers? There is a church you can
come to and not be judged by what you're wearing or what mistakes you've
made. Jesus says to come as you are, not come when you're perfect. If any
of these things apply to you, we invite you to come and get the answers
you need, come and get to Jesus. After all, you are hungry, aren't you? Take

And never be afraid to die,
For I await you 'In the Sky'

Thank you for helping us through this
perilous time. No words are sufficient for how
you have showed an outpouring of love.
Our prayer is for you to be blessed in all you do.

Miss Me But Let Me Go

When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom filled room
Why cry for a soul set free.
Miss me a little but not too long
And not with your head bowed low.
Remember love we once shared,
Miss me but let me go.
For this journey we all must take,
And each must go alone;
It's all a part of the Master's plan
A step on the road home.
When you are lonely and sick at heart,
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in
doing good deeds.
Miss me but let me go.
Author Unknown

Thank You
On behalf of the Herbert Schofield family,

Kenseth wins at Dover


By CHUCK HINSON
Dover, Delaware came
alive as Matt Kenseth caught
Roush Racing teammate
Jamie McMurray with just
three laps to go in the Neigh-
borhood Excellence 400, to
pull away with a win at the
Dover International Speed-
way.
McMurray was ready for
and expected to pull out of
the winner's circle with his
second Nextel Cup win with
98 laps left to go. But after
holding on to the lead for 95


laps, Kenseth got his second
wind and was riding the
bumper of McMurray with
less than 30 laps to go.
The win came about with
one lap to go when Kenseth
broke free and had the clear
shot for the title. It was his
second win of the season and
his 12th career win.
Kevin Harvick came in
thrid palace after McMurray,
followed .by Jeff Burton in
fourth and Kyle Busch in
fifth place. Jimmie Johnson
maintained his points lead

Seon-Hwa Lee wins first LPGA


By CHUCK HINSON
Seon-Hwa Lee knew the
game was hers when she
took the lead on the 13th hole
of the ShopRite LPGA Clas-
sic in Galloway Township,
N.J., on Sunday. After she
completed the other five
holes, the 18th was her first
victory and another loss for
defending champion, Anika
Sorenstam.
In -a final round that had
spectators on the egde of the
green and viewers at home
not wanting to look away
from the screen, the 20-year-
old tour rookie closed with an
8-under par 63 to win the
tournament. Her 16-under
197- total matched' the. tomtt- '
nament record held by
Sorenstam. She, Jeong Jang
and Sherri Steinhauer all


tied for second place.
It was the first victory for
Lee on the LPGA tour. She
has finished in second place
three times this year.
She also shot the lowest
round of the three-day tour-
nament, beating out another
rookie and second-round
leader Ali Miyazato.


People are predicting that
this could be Lee's year after
an impressive three days of
playing. Others say her
chances for advancement
and winning a record amount
of tournaments this year
could also be due to the ever-
increasing slump and win-
ning drought of Sorenstam.

AT WALTON MIDDLE SCHOOL, educational experiences
are presented in innovative ways such as learning about the
impact an individual can have on the world, one historical
figure at a time. Sixth grade students in Ms. Ginny McCall's
Social Studies classes were all required to research a person
who had influenced history in one way or another, and share
this information with the class either by a power point slide
show, creative bio poem, or traditional research report.
Each student was encouraged to dress up as the famous
person they had researched or bring a prop that was signifi-
cant to that person. Several 6th graders are pictured in their
character portrayals. Back row: left to right, Justin Thomas
as Tutankhamen, Maria Ramirez as Queen Isabella of Spain,
Devero Bogart as Princess Diana of Wales, Teia Fields as
Cleopatra; front row, left to right, Ayden Trusty as Leonardo
Da Vinci and Caleb Steadman as Martin Luther King Jr.

By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
a Pastor, Freeport UMC
You know, a church is very much like a family. Each member
of the family is different and has his own special identity and his
own personality. The Tater family is made up of a father named
Dick Tater, a mother whose name is Sweet Tater, a teenaged son
named Speck Tater, a daughter named Emma Tater and two chil-
dren in the nursery. They would be the Tater tots!
The father, Dick Tater always has to be the boss. He always
tells everyone what to do. He wants to be chairman of the dea-
cons, or at least the personnel committee. If he can't be the boss,
he won't even come to church at all.
The mother, Sweet Tater, always has something nice to say
about everyone. She never insists on having her own way and
she would never get mad or get her feelings hurt if she didn't get
her way. She really shows what the Bible calls the fruit of the
Spirit; love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness and self-control.
The teenaged son, Speck Tater just doesn't want to get in-
volved. He doesn't want any jobs, he just wants to sit back and
watch everyone else do the work. Of course, if they don't do it to
suit him, he will surely be the first to criticize and find fault.
The daughter, Emma Tater, is more worried about what she
wears to church than she is about what happens at church. It is
very important to her that she is dressed in the latest style so
that she won't be embarrassed. She wants every one to notice
that she is very "cool."
Well, that brings us to the Tater tots in the nursery. I don't
know how they will turn out, but they will probably look at the
other members of the family and decide that they want to be like
one of them. They might become a Dick Tater, a Sweet Tater, a
Speck Tater, or an Emma Tater. Let's hope that they make the
right choice.
Dear Lord, as we choose the type of church family member we
will be, help us to make the right choices. Let us show the fruit of
your Spirit in our lives.

Electioneering group



settles in face of charges


BILL FOWLER, a long-time south Walton County resident
and South Walton Fire District commissioner, was recognized
for his years of effort on June 5 after tendering his resignation.
at that evening's fire board meeting. South Walton Fire
District Chairman Maurice Gilbert (left) presented Fowler
with an honorary plaque.



Nine-year fire



commissioner


bids farewell


By Dotty Nist
Bill Fowler observed that
the South Walton Fire
District has come a long way
since he came on bpgrd as
fire commissioner nine years
ago.
"I'd like to think I've had
a piece of the action," Fowler
added.
Fowler broke the news of
his resignation to his fellow
South Walton Fire District
(SWFD) fire commissioners
and other attendees at the
fire district's June 5 regular
meeting. He received thanks
and was honored fpr his
many years of service--an
even more meaningful
contribution in view of the
fact that SWFD fire
commissioners serve the
public free bf charge.
Fowler's resignation was
prompted by plans to leave


the area within the next few
months. He did not reveal
where he would be moving
but indicated that it would be
someplace where the
summer weather is more
temperate.
There were other honors
on June 5 as well.
Dawson Beale, a SWFD
firefighter/EMT, was
recognized for a rescue near
Cottondale while he was off
duty.
On his way home from a
training session in Ocala,
Beale observed an
approaching truck towing a
smaller truck go out of
control and cross the median.
He turned around and found
the two trucks on fire, the
larger ione having struck a
tree and turned over onto the

By Dotty Nist
The Walton Association of
Voters (WAV), one of the
state's first electioneering
communication organi-
zations, has agreed to pay
$15,000 in a consent
agreement to settle charges
of alleged campaign finance
law violations in connection
with Walton County's 2004
election.
/
The consent'order was
filed on May 30, with the
$15,000 going to the Florida
Elections Commission (FEC).
-It includes a statement of
agreement between the
parties (WAV and the FEC)
that the settlement "shall not
constitute an admission
against interest or
acknowledgment of
wrongdoing before any other
tribunal."
In Dec. 2005, the FEC
found probable cause to
charge WAV with a number
of alleged violations. The
charges resulted from a
complaint filed by former
Grayton Beach businessman
Guy Davidson in August
2004 in connection with the
Walton County District 1
commissioner's race.
Davidson produced
campaign advertising for
then-Walton County District
1 Commissioner Lane Rees,
who was running for
reelection. Davidson's
complaint came in the wake
of negative ads attacking
Rees placed by WAV in the
DeFuniak Springs Herald
and Beach Breeze and other


local media.
In contrast with
traditional political
organizations, electioneering
communications organi-
zations target a specific
candidate but make no
mention of his opponent---
and their spending is not
limited as is the case with the
traditional organizations.
WAV spent over $60,000
on an ad campaign targeting
Rees, branding the candidate
as supporting "big spending
and higher taxes."
Rees raised approximately
$82,000, but that amount
was dwarfed by the WAV
spending combined with that
of his opponent Scott
Brannon, the only other
candidate in the race, who
raised over $73,000.
Electioneering communi-
cations organizations are
prohibited by law from
coordinating with
candidates' campaigns, and
Brannon has steadfastly
denied any association with
WAV.
The outcome of the 2004
District 1 contest wasf a clear
victory for Brannon.
WAV spokesperson Jimmy
Judkins commented that the
FEC charges against WAV
were "overstated, stacked,"
and that most of them
involved "technical account-
ing issues."
There were 30 charges in
all, involving allegations of
failure to report expendi-
tures correctly or completely,
failure to report contri-
butions, and absence of


sufficient funds in the
campaign depository when
advertising expenditures
were authorized.
WAV agreed to pay a $500
fine for each of the 30 counts
or charges. (The FEC has the
authority to levy a fine of up
to $1,000 for each count that
a party is determined to have
committed).
"It boils down to an
accounting question," com-
mented Mark Herron, an
attorney representing WAV.
"WAV used a cash method of
accounting in reporting its
expenditures, and the FEC
thinks it should have used an
accrual method," he
explained.
The consent agreement
closes the matter of the FEC
charges against WAV.
"This ends what could
have been an extremely
expensive legal battle,"
Judkins stated.
"It's a lot cheaper for WAV
to pay the fine. There is no
question that WAV reported
all of its contributions and all
of its expenditures," he
added.
According to testimony to
the FEC in connection with
the alleged violations, WAV
organizers and members
included south Walton
County citizens Lloyd Blue
and Richard Stafford.
According to Blue's
statements, recorded by the
FEC, a group of "figurehead"
directors was recruited for
the organization, including
James Eaton, William
Gordon and Verdon Rahal.


Contributors of more than
$5,000 to WAV for 2004
campaign funding included:
Magnum Investments of
Tallahassee; Olson and
Associates of Northwest
Florida; Seacrest Beach Inc.;
attorney Frank H. Watson;
Crystal Beach Development;
BRS Joint Venture; South
Walton Properties; Angus G.
Andrews; Hilton, Inc. of
Panama City; and two
companies for which Charles
Hilton is listed as registered
agent and director, GAC
Contractors and Holiday Golf
& Racquet Club.
Lane Rees commented
that he believes WAV did a
disservice to the public in not
filing reports on the
organization's contributors
until "the last day possible,"
resulting in the community
being in the dark about who
was funding the attack
campaign against him.
He also called the content
of the advertising
"disingenuous" and
"mislogding" because he had
advocated the lowering of the
county millage rate as
commissioner both in 2001
and in 2004, in contrast with
the WAV ads' portrayal of
him as a supporter of big
spending.

Patrons vigilant in reporting violations


Timpoochee Trail improvements


I and problems continue


THIS WATER LINE across the Timpoochee Trail near
Butler Elementary school violates a county ordinance
impeding trail traffic. Photo courtesy of Fred Betz.


By Leah Stratmann
Regular users of the
Timpoochee Trail are
vigilant in reporting
violations to the public works
department that may impede
the walkers, runners and
bikers frequently making use
of the facility in Walton
County. More than three
weeks have passed since
Fred Betz reported and
documented a water line
across the path near Butler
Elementary School.
Public Works employee
Ryan Douglas received a
copy of the photo and the
Betz report about the water
line and contacted the'
developer about removing it.
"They assured us it would be
taken care of, but I was
informed over the weekend
the line is still there. I plan
to send someone out today
and confirm the status. We
understand that work has to
be done, but if the line isn't
moved, I will issue a stop


work order," he said.
The trail has been a topic
of discussion for some
months. After failing into
disrepair from the multiple
development projects,, a
contract was signed two
months ago with Gum Creek
to make repairs to the 18 and
a half-mile path. Douglas
said the repair order has
been extended because more
areas were found that
needed attention.
"I am very please with the
work Gum Creek did,"
Douglas commented. Trail
user Dan McClary agrees,
saying, "Gum Creek has done
a great job. They were very
conscientious about putting
out cones while the work was
being done and the repairs
seem to be first-rate. We hope
in the future contractors
working in the area will not
damage the path," he said.
"We hope code enforcement is
diligent when we report
development damage to


them. Contractors tend to try
and put in a temporary fix
and say they will make a
permanent fix when the
project is complete. In some
cases, developments won't be
finished for more than a year.
When they damage the path,
they should return the path
to the way it was before
immediately. Users should
not have to contend with
some temporary fix. The path
is all in the public right of
way," McClary emphasized.
McClary and other
members of the Friends of
the Timpoochee Trail have
scheduled a meeting with the
sheriff's department next
week to try and iron out how
best to enforce the ban on
parking on ti .e trail and the
use of small vehicles such as
golf carts or scooters, which
is banned by a county
ordinance. "I've seen more
and more golf cards on the
path than usual. This is one
area the sheriff's office needs


to address and we hope we
can work out some details at
the meeting," he said.
Meanwhile, the
maintenance contract has
been awarded to RDT
Enterprises and Bay
Services and the work has
been started. One of the
many complaints users of the
trail have noted is
overhanging foliage and
other impediments to smooth
transition along the trail
"The first trip through the
trail will be rough," Douglas
said. "Assessments will have
to be made about cutting
back the growth and getting
the landscape areas to a
manageable state. However,
if these people can do half as
well with the maintenance as
the repair people did with the
repairs, we will be very
pleased." McClary's group
has suggested using drought
tolerant plants along the
trail to minimize
maintenance.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 8, 2006


Hurricane preparedness


seminar a success


By JEFFREY POWELL
South Walton's Coastal
Branch Library was the site
of the second of two annual
seminars to discuss hurri-
cane preparedness issues.
Public information coordi-
nator and spokesperson Sara
Comander opened the meet-
ing and introduced state Rep-
resentative Don Brown.
Brown explained the many
intricacies of citizen insur-
ance. He expressed concern
over the financial problems in
obtaining and maintaining
insurance in Florida. Such
problems have been exacer-
bated by a series of devastat-
ing storms over the last two
years.
Emergency management
coordinator Jeff McVay and
American Red Cross repre-
sentative Ted Brown were on


hand to explain and discuss
evacuation and shelter infor-
mation.
Freeport High School is
the main shelter in Walton
County. Persons who go to
this shelter cannot bring
pets, alcohol, weapons or il-
licit drugs, all of which are
prohibited.
Cooking is not permitted
in the shelter, so persons go-
ing there should bring three
day's worth of provisions that
do not need to be cooked.
George Rogers from the
Escambia County/ University
of Florida IFAS Windstorm
Damage Mitigation Center
displayed and explained
many products than can help
protect the home during a
storm.
Rogers pointed out how
much damage can result from


GRAPHIC SHOWS predicted storm activity for 2006.


a garage door failure. "Dur-
ing a storm your garage door
is a weak point," Rogers
stated, and suggested bracing
or upgrading an existing door.
Walton County Sheriff's
Office's Capt. Danny
Glidewell had many "com-
mon sense" suggestions.
"If you evacuate let some-
one know where you're go-
ing," Glidewell, who further
advised evacuees to take im-
portant documents with
them, and photograph those
valuables that get left behind.
Chelco representative Erin
Bradshaw pointed out the
need for caution when deal-
ing with generators during
times of power outage. "There
exists a real possibility of in-
juring Chelco employees if a
generator is improperly in-'
stalled," Bradshaw said.
The common theme among
all the speakers was "prepa-
ration," such as not allowing
one's vehicle's fuel tank to get
below half a tank at any time.
Other suggestions in-
cluded keeping necessary
medications on hand and
stocking up on pet supplies.
Local citizen Dina Chance
shared her preparation skills
and knowledge, wrapping up
a successful hurricane pre-
paredness seminar.

hurricane preparedness,

lic Information office at 892-
8530.

Imperiled Lake Powell discussed


By JEFFREY POWELL
"Preservation, restoration
and education," states Rich-
ard Bryan, "are my main
goals as chairman of the
Lake Powell Community Al-
liance."
The alliance is a commu-
nity initiative dedicated to
preserving the water quality
and biodiversity of the glo-
bally rare and imperiled
Lake Powell ecosystem
through education, habitat
restoration, watershed-based


planning and community
partnership.
The Lake Powell Commu-
nity Alliance board and con-
cerned citizens met recently
to discuss the future of Lake
Powell in southern Walton
and Bay counties.
Topics discussed included
the high water level in the
lake. The water level is high
due to low or no outfall of lake
water into the Gulf of Mexico.
Native sea grass in the lake'
is being harmed by the


higher levels of fresh water.
Continued erosion from
near-by development is also
a concern. Vice chairman
Emily Ellis stressed a need
for responsible development,
continued water quality
monitoring and a review of
lake outfall policies.
Concerned citizens can be-
come members of the Lake
Powell Community Alliance
by. contacting P.O. box

'Family lot' or not?


By DOTTY NIST
Walton County's code pro-
vision allowing multiple
homes for family members on
the same lot is in the spot-
light with hearings by the
Walton County Zoning Board
ofAdjustments (ZBA.)
O (n Ma5 31. ZBA members
heard four hours of testimony
resulting from Western Lake,
lot owner Rich McGill's chal-
lenge of a decision by Pat
Blackshear, Walton County
growth management director.
Blackshear's decision had
circumvented plans by
McGill to build three homes
on a 0.574-acre lot on Lydia
Street in Grayton Beach, re-
placing one small existing
dwelling.


Scenic Highway
30A update
"The Scenic 30A Corridor
Advocacy Group continues to
meet in pursuit of state ap-
proval of CR- 30A as a scenic
highway. Florida Scenic
Highway designation relies
on the volunteer efforts of lo-
cal citizens, community lead-
ers, businesses and non-
profit organizations working
closely with land manage-
ment agencies, local govern-
ments, consultants and the
Florida Department of
Transportation.
The group is working to
prepare a corridor manage-
ment plan. This is part of the
process to coordinate main-
tenance and presentation of
the many scenic, natural, rec-
reational, historical, archeo-
logical and cultural intrinsic
resources found along the
route. Laura Haddock from
the FDOT and Oxo Slayer
from Kimley-Horn Consult-
ants, along with District 5
Commissioner Cindy Mead-
ows, are working with the
advisory group to develop
the management plan.
Citizens are needed to join
this effort. All CAG meetings
are open to the public and
interested stakeholders. The
next meeting of the Corridor
Advocacy Group is Thursday,
June 15, at 5 p.m. at the
Tourist Development Council
on Hwy. 98 at U.S.331 in Wal-
ton County. This meeting
will include discussion of a
Corridor Vision and the
Florida Highway Beautifica-
tion Council.
Contact Claire Banner-
man, Corridor Advisory
Group chair at 622-3059 for
more information.


McGill and his attorney
Gary Shipmani contended
that Mike Lane, former Wal-
ton County planning director,
had approved McGill's plans
for the lot prior to Lane's res-
ignation from his position in
Feb. 2005. .
According to McGill, his'
intentions were to build a
"family compound" of three
homes on the lot in accor-
dance with Walton County's
"family lot" code exemption.
Through the exemption, un-
der certain conditions, prop-
erty owners have been ap-
proved for multiple homes on
lots where only one dwelling
would have otherwise been
allowed.
McGill also testified that
following his talks with Lane,
planning department staff
had directed him to "re-site"
the three homes on his lot
plans in case he wanted to
split the parcel in the future.
Called as a witness, Mike
Lane stated that it had been
his and planning staffs in-
terpretation that McGill did
qualify for the family lot ex-
emption. However, Lane also
testified, "I have no recollec-
tion of telling him that he


could officially get the lot
split."
In his opening statement,
Harry Chiles, Walton
County's legal counsel, de-
nied that there was "evidence
of any approval" by the
county of McGill's plans for
the three structures. Chiles
later argued that McGill's ex-
pectations of being able to
split the lot were evidence of
an absence of good faith on
his part.
Shipman countered that
even if the latter were true,
it had no relevance on the
fact that McGill had relied on
information that.he would
qualify for the family lot ex-
emption, resulting in his pur-
chase of the Lydia Street
property for $1.4 million and
a $20,000 expenditure for ar-
chitectural expenses.
The May 31 hearing ended
without McGill's attorney
having completed the presen-
tation of his case. Testimony
is scheduled to resume at the
ZBA's next scheduled meet-
ing, which will begin at 6 p.m.
on Thursday, June 29, at the
South Walton Courthouse
Annex. ZBA meetings are
open to public attendance.

The Mattie Kelly
Arts Foundation has
,been around for
many years provid-
ing music, scholar-
ships and art. Once
again, the summer
Concerts in the Park
series gets the orga-
nization noticed
with some of the
region's top enter-
tainers performing.

From art to music, the
Mattie Kelly Arts Founda-
tion has tried to promote lo-
cal, area and regional talent
through a variety of artistic
media. Since the foundation
was organized in the memory
of Mattie Kelly, the organiza-
tion and its events have
drawn in thousands to the
Emerald Coast of Florida.
On May 25, the annual con-
cert series began at the
am phitheatre in Destin, Lo-
cal favorite Jones & Com-
pany got things started with
their combination of smooth
jazz and R & B sounds that
have made them one of the
top groups to book.
Making his first appearance
this past Thursday night,
Reed Waddle lit up the stage
with his strikingly unique
voice and diversity of music.
New to the scene, at least lo-
cally, he fused rock and blues
together to make every song
different and highly unique.
This two-time Interna-
tional Songwriting Competi-
tion winner has been called
the "next big one."
There is no doubt you will
hear more of this man and
more than likely see him re-
turn to the Mattie Kelly Con-
cert Series.
Throughout the month of
June, a variety of music will
fill the summer sky air.
On June 8, Free Monica
hits the stage with their va-
riety of lead vocals and acous-
tic guitar. Their high-driven
style of music has won them
critical acclaim and a very
enthusiastic fan-base.
Clark & Company take the
stage on June 15. This five-
member ensemble's range of
music will have fans slow
dancing one minute and
stomping their feet to fiddle
playing the next.
Their selections range from
R & B and 50s be. -bop, to
rock and roll and bluegrass.
Every style of sound can be
heard coming out of these
five musicians' instruments.

A local favorite that keeps
them packing out the venue,
is Dread Clampitt, appearing
June 22 on the main stage.
The four-piece acoustic band
plays traditional and funky
bluegrass, roots music to con-
temporary "new grass" selec-
tions with their own original
twist and flair.
Their music has been
referred to as cutting edge and
their style of performance
leaves people wanting more.
The final performance of
the Mattie Kelly Concert in
the Park series is Luna Man-
tra. They take the stage on
June 29.
This trio fuses modern and
traditional melodies and
rythyms of tango and fla-
menco, jazz and groove,
gypsy and bossa nova, blue-
grass and Caribbean style se-
lections. Their fusing of the
Spanish guitar and gypsy
violin has made the enter-
tainment spotlight change
directions and brought in an
entirely new listening audi-
ence.
Throughout the month of
June, the Concerts in the
Park series will take place
every Thursday night, begin-
ning at 7 p.m. at the concert
venue located behind
Longhorn's Steak House,
Hwy. 98 in Destin. The con-
certs are free and open to the
public, but donations are ac-
cepted and no pets are al-
lowed.

the Mattie Kelly Arts Foun-
dation at 650-2226.

Use generators safely, says Bronson


As the hurricane season
approaches, Florida Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is reminding con-
sumers to heed safety tips
when using portable genera-
tors. The generators have
become very popular in
Florida as a result of power
outages during several
record-breaking hurricane
seasons.


d 2006- "Generators are very use-
an from ful when the power goes out
t, Suite but they can be hazardous

1100, at when consumers do not take
the time to review safety di-
rections and follow the
ERSON manufacturers' guidelines,"
schools, Bronson said. "People should
take time well before a storm
#275F to read the information so
they don't put themselves
and their families at risk."
The U.S. Consumer Prod-
uct Safety Commission re-
District ceived reports of 179 carbon
e filled monoxide deaths associated
or new with portable generators be-

pplying tween. 1990 and 2002. In ad-
ontact: edition to the potential for
phone toxic engine exhaust, other
primary hazards include
appli electrocution and fire.
Three people have died in
South Florida over the past
two years as a result of car-
bon monoxide poisoning from
generators. One used the de-
vice in the kitchen; a couple


died when the generator,
which was located outside
their bedroom window,
spewed the gas into the open
window.

The primary cause of death
and illness is from carbon
monoxide poisoning because
people use generators in-
doors or in partially enclosed
areas such as garages or bal-
conies. Carbon monoxide is a
colorless, odorless gas. Symp-
toms of carbon monoxide poi-
soning are similar to the flu.
People who feel sick, dizzy or
weak while inside but feel
better when they leave the
home should be cautioned
that there might be carbon
monoxide present and they
should get immediate medi-
cal attention.

Some consumers in Florida
mistakenly believed that us-
ing the generators in their
garage was safe if the door
was left open. However, the
gases leaked into the homes
through vents. In addition,
garages are not usually well
ventilated, so if the owner
lets it run awhile and then
comes to turn it off, the car-
bon monoxide levels can be
so high as to immediately
render the person uncon-
scious and cause death. Gen-
erators can produce high lev-
els of carbon monoxide very
quickly.


Prior to purchasing a gen-
erator, consumers should
make sure they get one rated
for the amount of power they
will need. Light bulbs, appli-
ances and equipment usually
have labels indicating their
power requirements. People
unable to determine the
amount of power they will
need should contact an elec-
trician for help. Generators
should support the minimum
needs of a household during
an emergency. Also, during
an emergency the fuel supply
may be very limited so people
should use the generator
wisely.

Never use a generator in-
doors, including in garages,
balconies, crawl spaces or
other partially enclosed ar-
eas even with ventilation.
Opening windows or using
fans does not prevent carbon
monoxide buildup.
Place the generator out-
doors and away from doors,
windows and vents and put
it in a covered location.
Follow the directions that
come with the unit.
Install battery-operated
carbon monoxide alarms.
To avoid electrocution,
keep the generator dry and
operate it on a dry surface
under a canopy-like struc-
ture. Dry hands before touch-
ing the unit.
Plug appliances directly


into the generator or use a
heavy-duty, outdoor-rated ex-
tension cord that is rated in
amps or watts at least equal
to the sum of the connected
appliance loads.
Never try to power a house
wiring by plugging the gen-
erator into a wall outlet. This
is extremely hazardous to the
homeowner, utility workers
and neighbors served by the
same utility transformer.
Don't overload the genera-
tor. Don't operate more appli-
ances than the output rating
calls for.
Turn off all equipment
powered by the generator
before shutting down the
unit.
Never store fuel for the
generator in the home, and
use properly labeled safety
containers to store the fuel.
Also, do not store excessive
amounts of fuel.
Before- refueling the unit,
turn it off and let it cool
down. Fuel spilled on hot en-
gine parts can ignite.
"Many people are install-
ing permanent generators
and they should be sure to
use qualified electricians,"
Bronson said. "Consumers
who opt for portable units
need to take the time long
before a disaster to review
the instructions and safety
tips so they, don't make a mis-
take that can end in a disas-
ter of its own."


DOH warns against consuming raw oysters


The Florida Department of
Health (DOH) urges high
risk Floridians to avoid con-
suming raw oysters, which
often harbor the naturally
occurring bacteria Vibrio
vulnificus.
"It's important to under-
stand that most cases of
Vibrio vulnificus can be
avoided by taking the proper
precautions," said DOH Sec-
retary M. Rony Francois.
"There are several cooking
techniques individuals in
high risk groups can use to


enjoy oysters while remain-
ing safe."
Those most at-risk for de-
veloping serious illness from
Vibrio vulnificus include
heavy drinkers with liver
damage and people with cer-
tain health conditions such
as liver disease, diabetes,
cancer, stomach disorders or
any illness or treatment that
weakens the immune sys-
tem. While healthy persons
eating raw oysters with this
bacterium are less suscep-
tible to becoming ill, at-risk


individuals are more likely to
become extremely ill or die.
People in these high-risk
groups are also at risk of ill-
ness if they have wounds or
cuts and wade in estuarine
areas or seawater where the
bacteria might be present.
Thoroughly cooking oys-
ters, either by frying, stew-
ing or roasting, eliminates
harmful bacteria and viruses
in the meat. Consuming raw
oysters that have undergone
a post-harvest treatment
process to eliminate the bac-


teria can also reduce the risk
of illness. Initial symptoms of
Vibrio vulnificus infection
can include mild nausea,
vomiting or diarrhea, fol-
lowed by distinctive swollen
skin lesions, and septicemia.
If someone experiences these
symptoms after consuming
raw oysters, they should con-
tact their personal physician
immediately for diagnosis
and to receive antibiotic
treatment.
Last year, the Florida De-


apartment of Health investi-
gated 38 cases of Vibrio
vulnificus, six of which re-
sulted in death. Thirty of the
cases and one death were at-
tributed to wound expo-
sure; five of the cases and two
deaths were attributed to the
consumption of raw oysters;
one death was attributed to
the consumption of raw
clams; and the method of ex-
posure of two of the cases and
two of the deaths were unde-
termined.
