Police chief opposes



"consolidation" with sheriff


By Bruce Collier
In a strongly-worded let-
ter to DeFuniak Springs
Mayor Harold Carpenter and
the City Council, DeFuniak
Springs Police Department
(DFSPD) Chief Mike
Adkinson expressed disap-
pointment and opposition to
any move .to "disband" the
DFSPD to allow the Walton
County Sheriff's Office
(WCSO) to police the city.
In the June 8 letter,
Adkinson responded to what
he called "overtures" by
Sheriff Ralph Johnson "and
his representatives, includ-
ing a former acting chief of
police," adding that he was
also "greatly disappointed in
the approach taken by the
Sheriff in this matter."
"As the elected official di-
rectly responsible to the citi-
zens, he should have con-
tacted my office to advise if
he had concerns about the
City Police Department,"
wrote Adkinson.
The letter expresses
Adkinson's frustration at an
apparent breakdown of com-
munication between the two
departments.
"The Sheriff and his com-
mand staff have refused to
make themselves available
to us to discuss even the most
basic of police operations," he
wrote.
Responding to the sheriff's
alleged expression of concern
over DFSPD staffing,
Adkinson states that"[w]hile
I concur that we are inad-
equately staffed, it should be
stated that this council has
acknowledged the problem
and are taking steps to ad-


dress the issue by increasing
staffing, and salary to com-
bat retention issues."
Addressing what he calls
the sheriff's allegation that
WCSO deputies have to re-
spond to city calls, Adkinson
asserted that DFSPD officers
occasionally respond outside
the city limits, and that over-
lap is inevitable.
"Having said that," he
added, it is important to re-
alize that the Sheriff is in
complete control of our dis-
patch operation after 5 p.m.
and is the primary dis-
patcher during business
hours."
"[The sheriff's] control of
our dispatch operations pre-
sents a situation in which we
do not have access to either
the person calling in or the
record of what was said."
Adkinson also suggested
that the sheriff is "counting
our calls for service as part
of their need for more depu-
ties, essentially using the
work done by the police de-
partment to assist in justify-
ing their staffing."
The letter concludes with
a complaint that the sheriff
"routinely conducts opera-
tions inside the city limits
without notifying the city's
police department, thereby
endangering bofthihis depu-
ties and our officers."
While acknowledging that
the sheriff is "within his le-
gal limits" in conducting op-
erations in the city, Adkinson
added that doing so without
coordination with the chief of
police "shows a reckless dis-
regard for the public and of-
ficers."


Responding to the letter,
WCSO Capt. Danny
Glidewell expressed the
sheriff's position that WCSO
"hasn't done anything
wrong."
"We have always tried to
do the right thing, and we'll
continue in any way we can
to help the mayor and the
city council," said Glidewell.
"We've always provided
the best service, including to
the city of DeFuniak
Springs.'
As for Adkinson's conten-


tion that he has no access
dispatch calls or record
Glidewell said "he has
much access as we can pr
vide."
On the issue of lack
communication between tl
departments, Glidewe
said"I can't speak for t]
sheriff, but I've always be
available."
Regarding the allege
"overtures" toward consolid
tion, Glidewell said "v
haven't said anything fo
mally to the city council."


POLICE, SHERIFF at odds over service.


Guardado files appeal of death sentence


By Bruce Collier
Jesse Guardado, now on
Florida's death row, has filed
his initial appeal to the
Florida Supreme Court.

Guardado was sentenced to
death on October 13, 2005 by
Circuit Judge Kelvin C. Wells
for the murder of Jackie
Malone. The murder was
committed in September of
2004, during the course of a
robbery at Malone's home.
Guardado's case, was
somewhat different, from
other capital cases in that he
originally waived all right to
counsel and pled guilty to
both the robbery and first
degree murder.
The plea left only one is-
sue, that of whether to sen-
tence Guardado to death or
life in prison in a jury pro-
ceeding called the "penalty
phase."
Following Guardado's
plea, the court appointed at-
torneys John Jay Gontarek
and Jason Cobb as defense
counsel for the purpose of the
penalty phase and sentenc-
ing.
The penalty phase was
held, and the 12-member
jury unanimously recom-
mended a death sentence on
September 15, 2005.
Under Florida law, this
recommendation is "advi-
sory," meaning that the court
may still impose a sentence
of life imprisonment.
Prior to final sentence, ei-
ther the defendant or the
state may request a Spencer
hearing. Named for a 1993
Florida Supreme Court case,


a Spencer hearing allows a
defendant to present any ad-
ditional evidence tending to
mitigate his case.
The state may *also
present additional evidence
as to aggravating factors al-
ready presented to the jury
at the penalty phase. Both
sides may also make addi-
tional argument to the court
before final sentencing.
Guardado waived a Spen-
cer hearing, but the state
asked for one, and the hear-
ing was held on September
30, 2005.
At that hearing, Guardado
once more asserted that he
did not want a Spencer hear-
ing, and asked for immediate
imposition of sentence.
Guardado also informed
the court that he was "no
longer comfortable with the
representation that I have
received."
"...I no longer have repre-
sentation," he said.
The court questioned
Guardado as to specific de-
tails, particularly regarding
evidence that Guardado
wanted to present that his
attorneys did not present.
When questioned on this
point, Guardado refused to
answer, saying "I cannot
bring these things to light in
a public situation." He re-
quested a private aversa-
tion with Judge W" s, out of
the presence of all attorneys,
a request that was denied.
Guardado eventually
stated that his attorneys al-
lowed evidence to be pre-
sented at the penalty phase
"that I considered to be det-


rimental to my well being
that was not objected to by
my counsel."

Guardado had further
complaints about the medi-
cal examiner's testimony on
the autopsy, and once more
asked that his attorneys be
relieved from representing
him.
The court denied the re-
quest, and set sentencing for
October 13.
The appeal makes four ar-
guments. The first argues
that the court erred when it
refused to treat Guardado's
request that his attorneys be
relieved as a request to pro-
ceed without counsel.
Interwoven into this argu-
ment is the argument that
Guardado's constitutional
right to effective assistance
of counsel was denied.
The second and third ar-
guments contend that the
court erred in instructing the
jury and in finding that the
murder was committed in a
"heinous, atrocious and
cruel" manner, and in a "cold,
calculated and premedi-
tated" manner.
Under Florida capital sen-
tencing statutes, these are
considered "aggravating cir-
cumstances" that a jury may
consider when deliberating
over a death sentence.
Capital sentencing case
law is full of examples of
murders and their circum-
stances, in an attempt to
quantify exactly what can be
legally classified as "hei-
nous," "cruel" and "cold" or
"premeditated."


JESSE GUARDADO, at
the time of his September,
2005 arrest.


There is no rigid rule on
these circumstances, rather,
juries are expected to make
up their-own minds. This has
led to a wide variety of con-
clusions, and fertile ground
for appellate review.
The final argument as-
serts the unconstitutionality
of the Florida death penalty
statutes, citing a 2002 case
decided by the Supreme
Court of the United States,
Ring v. Arizona.
The state has not yet filed
a response to the appeal. This
is the first in what could be
years of state, federal, and
post-conviction litigation
over Guardado's sentence.

By Ben Grafton
At its meeting of June 7,
the first order of business for
the Freeport Planning Board
was the administration of the
oath of office to new member
Ronnie Brannon by board
attorney Clayton Adkinson,
following which City Planner
Latilda Henninger presented
information about an appli-
cation for a thirty- one lot de-
velopment to be known as
Bay Breeze Townhomes.

This development will be
on property located off of U.S.
331 South and zoned residen-
tial- commercial. She said
the technical review of the
project, which calls for two
story units finished with fed-
eral brick and a shingle fa-
cade, has been completed and
the project has Freeport
planning staff and engineer-
ing approval.
A representative from
Paradigm Engineering &
Consultants, speaking for the
project developer, asked the
board for mitigation of a
Freeport Comprehensive
Plan requirement that


projects of this type must
provide recreation areas for
the residents. As relief from
this requirement, the
spokesman proposed a dona-
tion of $12,000 to be used by
the city to offset develop-
ment costs of the Freeport
City Park in the Hammock
Bay development on SR- 20
West. The amount of the do-
nation was calculated from
the tax roll value of the town-
home development site.
Board member Jerry
Griffith stated that the cur-
rent tax roll value does not
reflect the true value of the
property and argued for a
mitigation fee based on the
current market value of the
property that would other-
wise be dedicated to the rec-
reation area. In ensuing dis-
cussion, Board Chairman
Earnest Nettles stated he
thought that, in today's mar-
ket, property values in this
area might bring $275,000
per acre and Brannon said
that the developer was try-
ing to do the city a favor
by donating money to the
park.


r-DFS Council to


! redesign Harbeson


i Field park


By Leigh Strickland
DeFuniak Springs may
soon have a new skate park
located at the recreation
* center at Harbeson Field.
Though new equipment and
a new park area are not
budgeted, members of the
City Council spoke out in'
favor of putting in a new park
at Monday's City Council
meeting.
Another park, located on
... Gene Hurley Road, suffered
'so much damage and
vandalism that it was taken
out of commission earlier this
year. According to City
Manager Kim Presnell, the
county would oversee the
new skate park and agreed
to design and lay asphalt for
it, charging the city only the
cost of the asphalt.
Mayor Harold Carpenter
is in favor of a new park
because of safety concerns for
the young people, who he
said will be hitting the
streets more now that school
is out for the summer.
Councilman Don Harrison
said, "I fully support this." He
feels that a new park at
Harbeson Field would be
better used than the other
park because of its more
central location.'
Funding appeared to be
the only thing holding the
project back.
Financial Director Sara
Bowers said that the city
won't know about grants that
could help fund the skate
park in time for budget
planning.
However, Councilman Roy
McLeod said the Council
should make a decision to
budget for this whether any
grants are received or not.
Councilman James
Huffman said, "We'll pay for
it whether we get it or not."
He referred to damage to the
city that could be caused by
skateboarders with no other
place to go.
At the same meeting, the
Council approved an
interlocal agreement
between Walton County and
DeFuniak Springs in which
the county agreed to manage
and maintain the recreation
center at Harbeson Field.
A preliminary plan for
Legacy Cove Townhomes, to


be constructed at the
intersection of 20th Street
and Hwy. 90, was not
completely approved by the
DeFuniak Springs Planning
Board. Director of Building
and Planning Larry Laird
said he could not recommend.
approval until certain issues
were addressed. The biggest
issue,
Laird, said, is traffic
concurrency. A traffic study
needs to be done that would
look at congestion, accidents,
and traffic lights for the busy
intersection. Other things
keeping the plans from
apprw-al are insufficient
lighting in the development,
a street that is not wide
enough, and the need for an
additional fire hydrant.
The former ice house in
DeFuniak Springs will be
demolished by low bidder
Dixie Trucking. The building
is considered by many,
including the Walton County
Heritage Association, to be
too far gone to be
refurbished. It also presents
a liability issue for the city
because vagrants stay in the
building.
The Walton County
Heritage Association
requested bricks from the
building that are in good
condition to be sold in a
future fund raiser.
The Council also approved
an extension on the lease of
the former train depot
building for the Walton
County Heritage Association.
Two people were
nominated by the Council for
the Florida League of Cities'
Florida Cities of Excellence
Awards. Sara Comander was
nominated for City Citizen of
the Year and Sara Bowers for
City
Finance Official of the
Year.
Ann Robinson, new
president of the Chautauqua
Assembly, called on members
of the council and residents
of DeFuniak to buy into
Chautauqua. Nearly 79
years old, Robinson said, "I
remember how I felt about
Chautauqua growing up."
"Other towns thought we
were stuck up," she said, "but
we were very proud of our
town."

Abuse

Awareness

Day set

By LEIGH STRICKLAND
The International Network
for the Prevention of Elder
Abuse (INPEA) has set its
first Wqrld Elder Abuse
Awareness Day for June 15,
2006.
In an effort to raise aware-
ness about the abuse of the
elderly, communities and
municipalities around the
world are likewise proclaim-
ing this day as World Elder
Abuse Awareness Day.
Groups within each commu-
nities will promote a better
understanding of the abuse
and neglect of older persons.
Last week, DeFuniak
Springs Mayor Harold Car-
penter signed one such proc-
lamation in conjunction with
the Walton County Council on
Aging and the C.O.P.E. Cen-
ter.
No activities are scheduled
for this year's World Elder
Abuse Awareness Day due to
short notice, but activities
and speakers are planned for
next year.
According to INPEA, the
abuse and neglect of the eld-
erly is "largely under-recog-
nized or treated as an unspo-
ken problem." It is a problem,
they say, that "no community
or country in the world is im-
mune from."
The problem is also elusive
at times. According to a World
Health Organization fact
sheet, "information on the ex-
tent of abuse in elderly popu-
lations is scant."
Director of the Walton
County Council on Aging,
Kay Brady, said 'that though

Abuse Awareness Day, as volunteers look on.


the exploitation and abuse of
older people goes in cycles,
the majority of cases involve
the family, often the adult
children of an elderly person.
It may be for this reason that
many cases are not pros-
ecuted.
Most cases, Brady said, in-
volve financial matters or
neglect. In neglect cases, she
said, it also may be consid-
ered self-abuse when people
refuse to care for themselves.
Definitions of elder abuse
may differ, but if abuse is sus-
pected, Brady said the first
step is to report it to 1-800-
962-2873.
This is something, she said,
"that can affect everybody no,
matter what walk of life."

DeFuniak Springs Police

Department implements policy manual


By BRUCE COLLIER
The DeFuniak Springs Po-
lice Department(DFSPD) is
now working by the book.
Specifically, it's a tele-
phone directory-sized tome
compiled by Chief Mike
Adkinson, who characterizes
it as a "living document."
Upon' taking office last
year, Adkinson made a list of
priority tasks for himself and
his department. Among them
was the creation and imple-
mentation of a policy manual.
The open-bound manual
contains some 74 general or-
ders, supplemented by stan-
dard operating procedures,
and is the first of its kind at
DFSPD.
"It's a bit overwritten,"
Adkinson admits, adding that
his work is an amalgamation
of material in other manuals.
The manual took six and a
half months to prepare.
Among the general orders
are procedures on use of force,
including a "force con-
tinuum," running the gamut
from an officer's simple pres-
ence all the way to deadly
force.
Officers employing any
kind of force must write a
detailed account of the inci-
dent, describing the situation
and explaining the reasons
for the level of force used on


a subject.
Adkinson reviews these
accounts and either approves
or disapproves. Deviations
from appropriate force can
result in disciplinary action
against the officer.
Adkinson has also put an
end to police pursuit except
in circumstances involving
violent offenders. "Warning
shots" are likewise prohib-
ited, and firing from moving
vehicles is discouraged.
Officers must qualify and
be certified with firearms
twice a year.
Adkinson's five-year goal is
to be fully staffed, to have the
station operational 24 hours
a day, seven days a week, and
to achieve state accreditation.
Adkinson and several se-
nior officers and investigators
commented on the problem of
officers joining DFSPD, only
to move on to the Walton
County Sheriff's Office
(WCSO), which offers sub-
stantially larger salaries for
starting officers.
Adkinson says he is vigor-
ously lobbying the city coun-
cil for increased funds "to
achieve officer parity" with
WCSO.
One investigator said that
the DFSPD had had two
Spanish-speaking officers,
but lost both to the WCSO, for


financial reasons.
"They had families to sup-
port," he said. At present,
there are no Spanish-speak-
ing officers on the DFSPD, a
subject of concern with the
growing Hispanic population
both in the city and
countywide.
Adkinson admits that the
DFSPD has lost an average
of three officers per year over
the past ten years. Showing
a list of officers who have re-
signed since 1980, he notes
that none reached the 25-
year retirement level.
Adkinson conducts a brief
tour of the station, showing
reorganization of the evi-
dence room, a work in
progress, stockpiling of out-
dated uniforms (some from
the 1970s), and new and old


equipment.
He estimates that it will
take between six to eight
months to get the administra-
tion the station in satisfac-
tory order, and in the mean-
time he will continue to write
what he hopes will be persua-
sive budget proposals to the
council.
Officers and staff will be
provided with CD copies of
the full manual, the original
of which is at the station, sub-
ject to modification and
tweaking.
Adkinson believes that the
basis of a police officer's job
is communication, and prob-
lem solving.
"I demand a lot from these
folks," he says, adding that "if
you can't communicate, you
have no business in this job."


City asking residents to conserve water

The City of DeFuniak Springs water system is operat-
ing at higher than normal pumping rates due to the dry
weather conditions. To make sure the system's pumps
and equipment are not over worked, and to be prepared if
the dry conditions continue, city officials are asking resi-
dents and businesses on the water system to use smart
water conservation practices on watering lawns and wash-
ing vehicles.
They are asking residents to voluntarily follow the "odd-
even" method for outdoor watering use. That means street
addresses with an odd number can water on odd days of
the calendar, and the opposite for even-numbered ad-
dresses. They would also ask residents to stop outdoor
watering from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. This is our period of peak
water demand. Dependent rainfall and water usage the
city may impose mandatory restrictions in the future.
They are asking residents at this time to voluntarily con-
serve until we get some rain.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


PERSONAL COMMENTS



EDITOR'S COMMENT By RON KELLEY




A lack of good judgement


A federal judge ruled last week that it is unconstitutional
to make a student stand for the Pledge of Allegiance, nor
does the student need their parents' permission to be ex-
cused from reciting the pledge.
The suit was brought by the American Civil Liberties
Union a fain-t the state Board of Education over an incident
that occurred at Boynton Beach High School. Teacher Cynthia
Alexandre disciplined 17-year-old Cameron Frazier for twice
refusing to stand for the pledge. The lawsuit questioned
whether the phldge must be recited at all.
As part of the his ruling, Judge Kenneth Ryskamp also
awarded Frazier .$32.500 and directed that the teacher be
given a reprimand in writing.
Such a decision puts me between a rock and a hard place.
No one can possibly feel more strongly about protecting our
American civil liberties than I do. Yet, I find myself increas-
ingly at odds with the American Civil Liberties Union, an
,-rL'.Tnization that appears to have lost touch with all sense
of reality. The ACLU seems to be casting about blindly for
some cause to champion, the more ridiculous and outland-




Editor:
Money talks and greed walks. Please let the property
owners in Seagrove Beach know that Doodle Harris is re-
questing an amendment to the county's land use map for
six beach front lots which are of the historic 60 foot width
from RP-Residential Preservation to Infill.
As I understand, the intention is to take six lots with
single-family residences, which have 60-foot widths, and be
able to develop nine lots of 40-foot width. Essentially the
request is a density grab. With infill classification, the owner
is okay to ask for development approval for residences on
40-foot lots where this stretch of beach front has been 60-
foot lots since developed in the late 1940s by C.H. McGee.
Also, with infill classification, four story buildings and
condo- like, multi-family can be developed if approved.

Editor:
Seacrest Beach, Inc. (Doodle Harris) is requesting an
amendment to the county's land use map for six beachfront
lots which are of the historic 60-foot width from "RP-Resi-
dential Preservation" to "Infill." I am a property owner in
Seagrove Beach in south Walton, directly adjacent to one of
the properties to be reviewed for rezoning. The issue comes
before the Walton County Planning Commission, Thursday,
June 8 at 5 p.m. at the South Walton County Courthouse
Annex. It is scheduled to go in front of the Board of County
Commissioners, also at the Courthouse Annex, on June 13
at 5 p.m. There are two applications for Rezoning, one which
involves the properties directly west of my residence and
the others slightly further west.
I am strongly opposed to this rezoning and have retained
legal council, as have a number of other interested parties.
As I understand, the intention it is to take six lots with
single-family residences which have 60 foot widths and be
able to develop nine lots of 40-foot width. Essentially the
request is a density grab. With "Infill" classifications, the
owner is okay to ask for development approval for residences
on 40-foot lots where this stretch of beachfront has been 60-
foot lots since developed in the late 1940s by C. H. McGee.
Also, with "Infill" classification, four-story buildings and
condo-like multi-family can be developed if approved.
Many citizens may not be aware of this pending change
as the notices are very recent.
I am hopeful that the press will cover this story so the
public can attend the meetings or let planning and county
commissioners aware of their concerns.

ish, the better. Where were they when Congress and the presi-
dent were busy passing the Patriot Act? If they are truly
concerned about protecting the civil liberties of Americans,
they should have brought all their considerable might to bear
against that evil, Constitution-shredding document, which
lays the foundation for a legal cessation of all American rights.
Instead, they do this.
The ACLU is not solely to blame for this brainless rein-
terpretation of the Constitution regarding the pledge. Judge
Ryskamp made the ruling. He also deserves credit for add-
ing insult to injury by rewarding this 17-year-old child for
his insolence.
The $32,500 was given to the boy to make up for what?
The extreme mental anguish and emotional trauma of sit-
ting there like a lump while the rest of his classmates pledged
their allegiance to this nation?
Oh, please!
This ranks up alongside the recent court ruling that al-
lows supervisors to punish and even fire employees that re-
port illegal or unethical conduct.
Judges that view the Constitution as a "living document"
whose meaning evolves over time are clearly at odds with
our founding fathers' deliberate and profound vision for how
this government should govern.
And to whom can we turn for help? Our senators and con-
gressmen or president? Not likely, since they are paving the
way for these serious attacks on our rights and liberties. I
find it astounding that Congress and the courts have done
little more than mumble about the endless multitude of at-
tacks on our freedoms and liberties. We are seeing a radical
expansion of government power go completely unchallenged
while most of Congress shows little sign of noticing or car-
ing. Congress acts as if spying on millions of American citi-
zens and deliberately violating the terms of the Foreign In-
telligence Surveillance Act were no big deal.
So who should we rely on to protect us? That is, at least,
one question with an easy answer.
As Americans, we can rely on no one but ourselves. We still
retain the power to turn out of office those who would betray
us and it's time we took back our country and rejected bad
judgments from those who would rule instead of serve.



Editor:
Reference the letter from Ray F. Moran, DeFuniak Springs
Herald, June 8. As "retired military," how dare he make
such an outrageous accusation concerning "Retired officers
and some high-ranking U. S. Congressmen, senators" being
"spineless and...sympathetic with the insurgents and the
Iraqi people who demonstrate and celebrate."
People who want to encourage young folks to leave the
military are certainly free to do so. One of the best things
about our modern military is that only those who want to
serve are doing so.
Conscription "no longer exists and those who want out
are generally free to leave when their contract expires. There
have been some involuntary extensions, but they are the
exception rather than the norm.
I wore the uniform for more than 30 years, both enlisted
and commissioned. I don't know anyone in any position of
U. S. authority from either side of the aisle who is sympa-
thetic with the insurgents. I think Mr. Moran owes an apol-
ogy to a great many people in this area.

Editor,
In the DeFuniak Springs Herald of Thursday, June 1, 2006,
notice of public hearing, page 14C, the Walton County Plan-
ning Commission announced it would hold a public meet-
ing on June 8, 2006 at 5 p.m. on various ordinance amend-
ments and petitions.
Number four on the list states: Petition for abandonment
on McCullough Road. Then it further states: Walton County
is proposing to abandonment, etc., and goes on to describe
the location.
I have several arguments with such an announcement.
Number one: Who is "Walton County" in the announcement?
The BCC is the general policy maker in county matters, so
how does the Planning Commission accurately describe it-
self as "Walton County"? That is extremely misleading.
This "public meeting" is being conducted in Santa Rosa
Beach at the so-called South Walton County Courthouse
Annex. But guess where the road in question is located,
folks? Way up in 'Cracker Country' about 10 miles north of
DeFuniak Springs, not far from Cluster Springs Church on
CR-1084. So why isn't such a meeting scheduled for the
courthouse in DeFuniak Springs, nearer the road and folks
interested in it, or would that annoy thePlanning Commis-
sion?
Now for a little history on that road. First, it is dirt, as are
most roads in 'Cracker County', i.e. north Walton. Second,
it has been there for as long as the oldest residents can re-
member, and that means 75+ years. It connects County CR-
1084 and Thompson road. It is about 1/4 miles long. I am
told the owner on both sides of the road has treated this
public road as his private property for some years now, al-
ternately blocking it with debris of various kinds, and fi-
nally installing a gate where the road intersects with 1084.
Isn't this a bit much?
I suspect that should I or anyone else fence the entrance
to a public road, however short it may be, we would promptly
be visited by the sheriff or his deputy so why hasn't this
happened? Don't tell me it is legal to obstruct a public road.
One doesn't need to be a lawyer to know this is not true.
If this road is truly public, and it apparently is, even
though access has been denied for some time now, what is
stopping the sheriff from leaning on the perpertrator to obey
the law? It shouldn't be necessary for anyone in particular
to file a complaint for such a flagrant and public violation.

Editor:
Once again Walton County is entering a hurricane sea-
son with one inadequate evacuation route for folks south of
the bay. Recently Hwy. 331 has reached a priority position
only to be stymied by the need for additional bridging of
the bay. Recently members of the North Walton Republican
Club were told that DEP was requiring that the bay be
bridged from shore to shore. Utilization of the existing cause-
way was ruled out and DEP wanted it removed entirely.
A check with FDOT confirmed that this was DEP's posi-
tion with the exception of.removal of the causeway. A check
with DEP revealed that no plan or request had been pre-
sented to them and therefore they had no position on the
project. DEP stated that they would prefer that the bridge
span the entire bay, but realized the cost was a problem.
Additionally, they would not rule out enhancement of the
causeway and were not requiring its removal. Costs for. con-
structing the bridge are estimated at $500M.
One has to wonder at this figure. An Alaskan bridge, de-
scribed as rivaling the Golden Gate Bridge in height and
length, has a cost estimate of $300M and Alaska is a very
expensive place in which to build. The idea of a toll bridge
to cover construction cost has been pushed. With current
gasoline prices, that's just what commuters need, an addi-
tional cost to get to work. Just what is the agenda here?
Tolls seem to surface with every highway or bridge pro-
posal.

Editor,
My job means attendance of a number of public meetings
each month. At many of these our elected officials usually
start with the pledge of allegiance. Personally I stand and
salute. Part of this is due to work with young boys at church
through Royal Rangers, a scout like group, and teaching
them drills and honoring our flag. But recently the thought
came as to why I salute.
When I was little, my favorite uncle, Jerry Houdashelt,
would lift me all the way up and let me touch the ceiling.
He was a fun person, a natural clown full of life. Uncle Jerry
was one of my favorite persons and in my young eyes, big-
ger than life.
One night snuggled in bed with my footie pajamas, Uncle
Jerry came in and told me he was going away to the war.
My young brain did not know much of wars and politics in
the mid 60s, but I knew enough to tell him, "no, you will get
killed." My usually joking fun loving uncle simply replied,
"I have to." He had joined the Marines and was being sent
to Vietnam. Uncle Jerry was killed while on patrol with Com-
pany A, 3 Reconnaissance Battalion, 3rd Marine Division
(REINFMF) when he took enemy fire to the back of the head
Jan. 2, 1968 in the vicinity of Phu Vai.
Now back to why do I stand proud and salute the flag?
When my eyes behold the red stripes I see the blood my
hero uncle shed for me. I stand up straight while saluting
because he lifted me high and due to his love for me and
this country, my own boys and I still stand tall. When I look
at the blue field I think of the freedoms we have and while
his sacrifice was not peaceful, the result is being able live
with peace. When I see the stars I think of the history of our
great nation and others who have given throughout the
ages. And when I see the white stripes, I think of the purity
that comes from another who shed His blood for me, Jesus
Christ. Like Uncle Jerry, he did not have to; Romans, 5:8
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we
were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
In a letter to my father, Uncle Jerry .wrote, "please re-
mind Kevin of me often, I want so much for him to remem-
ber his Uncle Jerry." As we celebrate Flag Day and the
Fourth of July, every time I see a flag I remember my Uncle
Jerry. As a boy he was my hero. As a grown man and now a
father, Uncle Jerry and every veteran who has served re-
mains my hero because they all have helped to keep Old
Glory flying. May the colors always wave.
Remember to show your flag in a way that shows respect.
Your flag should be illuminated at night. If your flag is not
made of weatherproof materials you should not leave it out
in the rain.
Never let it touch the ground, prevent soiling and dis-
pose of it properly when it has worn too much to be flown.
Raise it briskly in the morning and lower slowly in evening.

Tiffany's passion is her
horse, Oreo. His registered
name is Sandspur Justin but
his black/white/black mark-

nicknames obvious. A regis-
tered paint gelding, Oreo
stands 15 hands and 1/2 inch
high. He was purchased from
the Three Angels Ranch in
Bonifay.

Tiffany spends as much
time as possible with Oreo

DOH precautions against

mosquito borne illnesses


The Florida Department of
Health (DOH) is working
with the state Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services, the Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commis-
sion, mosquito control agen-
cies, and state universities to
monitor the presence of dis-
ease-carrying mosquitos.
DOH advises following the
"five Ds," which include
avoiding being outdoors at
dusk and dawn, when mos-
quit.os are seeking blood.
Other "Ds" are dressing to
cover most of the skin, using
repellents containing DEET,
and drainage of standing wa-
ter where mosquitos lay eggs.
In choosing a repellent, us-
ers are advised to check the
label. Some repellents are not
suitable for children. Repel-
lents with DEET concentra-
tions of up to 30 percent are
recommended. Picaridin or
oil of lemon eucalyptus are
also useful as repellents.
Repellent should be ap-
plied to exposed skin, or onto
clothing, but not under cloth-
ing. Repellent should not be
applied to children's hands.
Breeding sites can be
eliminated by cleaning out

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 15, 2006


Senator calls for investigation of prescription drug seizures


By MARIA SPEISER

Like many seniors,
Jacqueline Flick relies on
Lipitor to help lower her risk
of heart disease. Living on a
moderate income, she consid-
ered enrolling in the new
Medicare prescription drug
program this year to help her
pay for her prescription
drugs, but it was clear she
could save more money
by getting her medications
from Canada.
She was outraged last
month when she received a
letter from U.S. Customs and
Border Protection notifying
her that they had
confiscated her Lipitor. "You
are personally and jointly
with the U.S. government
jeopardizing my health by
denying me my prescribed
medicine," Mrs. Flick wrote in
response to Customs' actions.
Mrs. Flick is not alone in her
frustration. Since last winter,
U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson has
heard from scores of seniors
in similar situations, and he's
now calling on the Senate
Committee on Homeland Se-
curity and Governmental Af-
fairs to investigate the sei-


zure of prescription drugs
purchased by Americans from
Canada.
This latest move by Nelson
comes after the Department
of Homeland Security's in-
spector general refused to in-
vestigate months of stepped-
up drug seizures. Nelson's of-
fice first began hearing
from constituents who had
not received their medica-
tions soon after the start of
the new Medicare prescrip-
tion drug program in Novem-
ber.

The new Medicare program
was part of the Bush
administration's alternative
to drug importation, and was
supposed to make prescrip-
tion drugs more affordable
for seniors. For many, how-
ever, obtaining prescription
drugs from Canada remains
a more affordable option.
Concerned that the U.S.
Customs and Border
Protection's failure to notify
consumers of their stepped-
up drug seizures was placing
seniors' health at risk, Nelson
requested a full investigation
into the issue by the Depart-
ment of Homeland Security


inspector general. The re-
quest was rebuffed, said
Nelson spokesman Dan
McLaughlin.
Nelson also worried that
the increase in confiscations
represented a political move
aimed at pressuring seniors
to enroll in Medicare's drug
plan, and asked the Home-
land Security IG whether the
increase represented a policy
shift and if it was related to
the start of the Medicare pre-
scription drug program.
An unnamed Bush admin-
istration source confirmed in
March that Customs had
seized almost 13,000 pack-
ages containing imported
prescription drugs nation-
wide between November
2005 and February 2006 -
including 899 in Miami -
while essentially no prescrip-
tion drugs had been seized
over the same period a year
earlier.

The agency also acknowl-
edged that it had modified
their imported drug policy
beginning on November 17,
2005 -just two days after the
start of the Medicare pre-
scription drug program. The


DFS Red Cross responds to Alberto


By LEIGH STRICKLAND

The Red Cross office in De-
Funiak Springs responded
to Tropical Storm Alberto by
filling an Emergency Re-
sponse Vehicle (ERV) with
2,000 pounds of water, juice,
and snacks to transport to af-
fected areas.

Ted Brown at the DeFu-
niak Springs office said that
the local office was currently
on standby and ready to open
shelters if that became nec-
essary.
Tuesday morning, as the
Storm brought' rain and
-high winds toa.the Florida


coastline, a group from the
Wiregrass Chapter of the Red
Cross located in Dothan, Ala-
bama, traveled to DeFuniak
to pick up the ERV.
This team of workers who
have undergone intense
training in damage assess-
ment and communications
were then to transport the
vehicle to a Tallahassee
staging area. There an as-
sessment would be done and
the ERV would be sent to
where it is most needed.
The ERV, owned by the
National Red Cross and
maintained locally, may be
called on to respond to disas-
ters in any part of the United


States, Brown said. The ve-
hicle, he said, is capable of
serving food and drink to 200
or more people. Trucks like
this also carry cleanup kits
which include supplies like
brooms, buckets, and bleach.
According to Brown, fund-
ing for supplies comes
from donations made to the
Red Cross. No funding is re-
ceived from the government
and volunteers work on site.

Currently, there is need in
Walton County for volun-
teers, Brown said. People are
needed to work in the office,
in shelters, and in ware-
houses.'

room only in the chambers,
and a full anteroom outside
of it.
Several agenda items had
brought out the citizenry to
address the planning
commissioners. Among them
was a county petition for
abandonment of a portion of
McCullough Road, which lies
south of CR-1084 and ends on
the north side of the public
right of way known as
Thompson Road.
The county has ceased to
maintain the road and has
requested abandonment
because the width of the road
is only about 11-feet. County
resident Bill Jennings said
abandoning the road will
benefit only one person and
said the road has always been
narrow. "It was an 11-foot
wide road in the 1930s when
the county started
maintaining it, and the
county started using it in the
1940s. In 2001, David
Herring, an adjacent property
owner closed the road and
was ordered by the county to
re-open the road.
"This road gives access to
not only people who suffer
washouts from time to time.
It is absolutely ludicrous that
I can establish McCullough
Road has been maintained by
the county since the 1930s.
There is no reason to close
McCullough Road. Why give


From Front


it to a single landowner who
has never used it? Why
should we give away
something that is already
ours? That is ridiculous. If it
is abandoned now, it will have
to be repurchased via
eminent domain in the
future," he insisted.
A county employee verified
to commissioner Tom Patton
that in some places
encroachment has reduced
the width of the road to one-
lane only.
"This intersection is within
two miles of where I was
born," stated 91-year-old
Lloyd Thompson. "My dead
brother sold this portion to
the Herrings and they started
working on that road in 1938.
This is not a 12-foot road. You
could meet and pass vehicles
on that road, which I don't
think you can do on an 11-foot
road. Code enforcement
requested a survey in 2001
and county said then the road
would be paved. This has
been a political football that
has been kicked around for
years," he said.
Former county
commissioner Gene Ryan
said: "I was a commissioner
when the road was closed
before. He (Herring) was
advised that if he wanted to
abandon road, there was a
procedure in place and fees to


WATERY SLIDE for kids at Professional Products' June
10 company picnic.


pay. Now the road has been
closed again. The BCC board
has not voted to allow him to
close it. If we allow this to
stand, we are setting a
terrible precedent. We are
developing in the north and
we don't know what roads are
going to be needed. If I was
sitting on the board today, I
wouldn't close any roads we
already have as it will cost
the taxpayers much more in
the future if we have to take
it back. Mr. Herring should be
told to open the road and the
issue should go back to the
BCC," Ryan stated.
Another former
commissioner, Randal
Infinger also spoke to the
commissioners saying if the
county has quit maintaining
the road, it is by design. He,
said that although the road
is narrow, there is enough
space to make adjustment if
met by an oncoming car.
"Right now is a bad time to
be abandoning road," he said.
Residents around
McCullough Road testified
that the road has value
during storms that wash out
other roads. Dr. Ruben
Garcia, who lives near
McCullough Road, said
Hurricane Georges impacted
him a few years back. "That
road was the only egress I
could take. I am the
emergency operations center
director and on staff at the
hospital and even with a four-
wheel drive vehicle, this road
was the only way I could get
to town to check on patients
and do my job at the
emergency center."


Mark Davis, Herring's
attorney said the county no
longer wants to maintain the
road and they informed his
client of this. He said the road
washes out when it rains and
it the county keeps it, ditches
will have to be dug.
Commissioner Patton
seemed quite moved by the
emotional testimony of those
in favor of keeping the road
and urged all of them to
attend the next Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) meeting to tell their
stories. "We should deny the
abandonment," Patton said. "I
am concerned that the 11-foot
thing keeps coming in. There
has been much testimony
that the road was wider in the
past. I don't like the idea of
the county saying they don't
want to maintain a county
road. That's their job. We need
to send this to the BCC. They
need to handle it. Part of this
motion needs to be that the
county maintain the road in
an adequate manner," he said.
The motion was seconded
by Tom Terrell and passed
with the dissent of Butch
Lawrence who said, "Through
use and disuse, this road has
become narrowed."
There was an announce-
ment at the June 13 meeting
of the BCC that the'two par-
ties had reached a tentative
agreement to temporarily
open the closed portion and
enter into negotiations for a
permanent agreement to re-
solve the matter.
Those negotiations are
expected to be completed
within 45 days.


THIS BUILDING ON US. 90, which had become an eye-
sore in recent years, is being demolished to make way for Legacy

PRIEST CELEBRATES

25 YEARS

OF SERVICE

By SONNY YATES
Twenty-five years ago, Richard Dawson
was ordained as a Catholic priest and even
though there have been many different
stops along his service trail, his entire ca-
reer has been spent in Florida Panhandle
communities.
Last Friday night, members of St.
Margaret's Parish of DeFuniak Springs
hosted a 25th anniversary reception for
Dawson in the Chautauqua Building that
included guests from the local church, as
well as members from former Panhandle
parishes. The 279 guests also included
Bishop John Ricard and Dawson's brother,
Bill Dawson, and sister, Sandy Hopf, and
husband, Lynn, all from Chicoro, PA.
Dawson was ordained in June, 1981, in
Pensacola and his first assignment was
with the Rural Vicariate (1981-84), a po-
sition that included eight smaller mission
churches, served by four different priests.
One of the eight included in that rural clas-
sification was DeFuniak Springs, about
one-eighth the size of its expanded parish
of today. In fact, it was Dawson who cel-
ebrated the very first Mass at the new St.
Margaret's Church in November, 1981.
The church, on U.S. 331 North, had just
been. completed after local members had
moved from the red brick church located

PA, attending last Friday's 25th anniversary reception for Dawson.


on Highway 90 in downtown DeFuniak.
In 1985, he spent a year in Port St.
Joe; eight months in Pensacola; two
years in Chipley; 4 1/2 years in
Blountstown/Wewahitchka and twelve
years at Cantonment, before returning
as priest to DeFuniak Springs and
Bonifay in January, 2003.
A graduate of Central Catholic High
in 1972, Dawson grew up in Pittsburgh,
PA.


When did he decide to enter the priest-
hood? "As an elementary school student,"
he said Sunday after his 25th anniversary
reception.
Was he ever apprehensive, or nervous
along his 25-year Panhandle trail? "Sure
was... on the day I was ordained over in
Pensacola."
To sum up all those years in one region,
Dawson added, "All. of the churches and
parishes were different, but all very de-
lightful."

SRemember Karen
/ June 16th will be a year since Momma died. We
wanted to share with everyone who knew and loved
her a few of the memories and experiences we have
of her final days. We had many loving people come
and see Mom there at the end, but only a few people
I got to see the miracle that took place the morning
of June 16th.
Anyone who came to visit on June 15th would have
a very sad memory of Mom. She was unable to talk,
to be honest she was barely responsive. She was in
a lot of pain and we could hardly bear what we knew
she was going through. Then it got worse and we
knew it was only a matter of time. We thought she
was slipping into a coma because there was no ac-
tivity from her for several hours. We just knew we
would never talk to her ever again.
Around 2 a.m. on the 16th she woke up and was
very alert. We feel God gave her one last chance to
let us know how much she loved us. She kept re-
peating to all of us "I love you, I love everybody."
She was so excited, not scared at all. She told us
with a smile on her face "I'm going to be with Jesus."
She told us of how she could see angels above the
bed. At one point, she even told us she saw Jesus
and she knew He was there to take her home. It
was absolutely amazing. The pain and agony she
had been in just a few hours before was completely
gone. For one complete hour we got to say goodbye
to our mother, in the most peaceful way.
Momma was a fighter, and she wasn't leaving this
earth without being sure we knew she loved us. Fi-
nally, after repeating over and over that she loved
us and that she loved everybody, we all could tell
she was growing tired. That's when we had to tell
her that we knew she loved us and we would never
forget that, but it was time for her to let go and go
home with Jesus. She laid back on the bed, closed
her eyes and her breath got weaker and weaker
within minutes. Afew minutes after 3 a.m. the Hos-
pice nurse told us she was gone.
Anyone that knew Mama, Karen Hall, would say
they never saw her without a smile on her face and
that was true even when she was dying. She had a
smile that none of us will ever forget.
We knew exactly where she had gone when she
left this world. We thank God for allowing us to have
such a precious memory of the last hour we had with
her.
We wanted to share this with everyone because
only her children and daughter-in-law was able to
experience it personally.
We want everyone to know how much we appreci-
ate the prayers and love that was extended to us.
We will never forget your generosity.
Sincerely,
April Anderson, Deann McHenry,
Chad Greer and Will Adams

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 for yourself.

Going Home A Different Way
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC

The Prodigal Son left home saying, "give me." However, af-
ter a stint with the hog pen, wasting his money and realizing
what he had in a past life, he went back to his Father saying,
"make me."
According to scripture this young man was lost, and dead,
both terms associated with a life outside of God. One can ratio-
nalize his lost condition, but it all boils down to what God's Word
has to say about his condition. Environment meant nothing to
the condition of the heart.
He came to reason-I'm hungry, busted, and lost. If I want to
do better I need to seek reconciliation. Nothing short of reconcili-
ation will suffice.
He reached a decision-I will confess, I will serve, and I will
be willing to be a mere hired servant.
However, both reason and decision left him smack dab in the
middle of the hog pen. There was no lifting him until...
He made a commitment-He arose and went. This is and
has been one of my very favorite stories in the Bible.
He could have remained lost and dead spiritually, but in-
stead, he chose to come to the Father.
I believe that I am speaking with someone right this minute
that has been estranged, lost and dead in your relationship with
your earthly father. But, is it worth all the pain that you and he
are feeling? Pick up the phone, mail a letter, make restitution,
and reconciliation.
The Father saw the son from afar-Is that the way you re-
ally want God to view you? Will you make that turn on the right
road? This is the only place in the Bible that describes God run-
ning. He died, shed real blood, was buried, and arose on the third
day. The prodigal son repented-the Father forgave. He came
home a different way-so can you!
Don't just watch us grow, come grow with us! 10 a.m. ser-
vice. Stop by here on your way to eternity!

Thank You
Take me out to the
ballgame...And that's just
what they did! On June 4,
2006 the 12-year old Little
League baseball players were
treated to an Atlanta Braves
baseball game. This was a
day that we will never forget.
It was my first Braves game
and one of the most exciting
times I've ever shared with.
all of my friends. Even
though the Braves lost, the
entire experience was a win
for all of us.
Just as we will always re-
member running the bases at
Turner Stadium, we will also
remember what a great time
we had playing Freeport
Little League baseball.
Thank you to all of the
Freeport Little League board
members, coaches, and boost-
ers for making this trip of a
lifetime possible. Also, thank
you so much for the support
Sand guidance you have given
us during our years of Little
League. We will miss the

ries.

was one of the better bunters
in the area, signed to play
softball for Lurleen B.
Wallace before her senior sea-
son began.
Hybiske, a junior who spent
most of her time in
centerfield, hit .490 for a


squad that made the fast-
pitch playoffs for the first
time in school history.
Ramsey set up shop in

Hybiske, Ramsey is a junior

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 15, 2006


Teens are stealing the sports scene


By CHUCK HINSON
It has been surprising over
the past year to see the num-
ber of games, champion-
ships, tournaments and com-
petitions that have been won
by athletes just fresh out of
their high school graduation
robes. It has become a trend
that is taking the world by
storm and has the "old" stan-
dards shaping up or giving in
to the critics.
Just in the news this past
weekend, a 25-year-old
rookie wins the Pocono 500,
a 20-year-old takes the
French Open and a 17 year-
old female nearly stumps the
women's side of champion-
ship tennis in Paris. And
these are just a few of the
sports where youth is domi-
nating the winner's circle.
When standards like rac-
ing icon Jeff Gordon and Jeff
Johnson are having to re-
structure their way of han-
dling their vehicles and golf
pros like Tiger Woods are
having to think of new ways
to get endorsements. It is a t
rend that has marketing gu-
rus and sports agents in a
frenzy to get these underage
athletes signed, up .and in
their ads.
Russia's 17-year-old Nicole
Vaidisova was cut just shy of
winning the women's side of
the French Open on Thurs-
day. She lost 5-7, 7-6, 6-2 to
Svetlana Kuznetsova in the
final round.


This type of play would
even have Billie Jean King
wishing she was still on the
court.
Sunday was a big day for
the "kids" on the playing
field, as 20-year-old Rafael
Nadal dominated the court to
beat defending champion
Roger Federer in the final
round of the French Open.
Nadal cost the standing
champion the title and pre-
vented him from entering the
sports history books.
Remember, Nadal is not
even old enough to enter a
nightclub or bar in this coun-
try.
The biggest shocker of this
past week was rookie driver
Denny Hamlin. Only 25, he
took the turns, kept his pace
and then poured on the heat
to win his first Nextel Cup
victory at the Pocono 500
Speedway in Pocono, PA.
After receiving his trophy
and congratulations and wip-
ing, not beer or champagne,
but soda from his driving
suit, he thanked a few people
and then told reporters that
his driving skills and abilities
were due to the video games
that he played for the past
few years.
Yes, I said the video games
that he had been playing for
the last few years.
He acknowledged the fact
that he had watched many
of the racing icons for several
years, but his maneuvers and


abilities to take turns as he
did was due to riding on slat
flats and playing racing video
games on his play station ,
probably still in the base-
ment of his parents' home.
Hawaiian golf star and 16-
year-old female Michelle Wie,
is the youngest of the ath-
letes in today's media that is
making headlines and turn-
ing heads all over the world.
Her play in the tournament
last weekend in the LPGA
Championship in Havre de
Grace, Maryland, brought
the teenager much fame.
If she had pulled off the vic-
tory and qualified for the
U.S. Open this year, the boys
in Augusta would have to
worry more about having a
female player, than just ac-
cepting women into the
sports club.
But is it all too soon and too
much? Could it come crash-
ing down all at one time for
these young athletes?
Many have compared the
success of these athletes to
the success of young televi-
sion and movie stars that are
now sitting behind bars, have
minimum wage paying jobs
or have taken their own lives
due to the failure they think
they have suffered in, their
lives and careers.
Others see a chance to get
these athletes to be role mod-
els for the younger genera-
tion since they are not that
much older than high school


seniors. But keep in mind,
they are still teenagers, and
many will still act like teen-
agers when they are not in
front of a camera.

Marketing and advertising
agents are clamoring to get
the first shot at the "hot" ath-
lete for their advertising
campaigns. Be it Nike,
Reebok, Adidas, Coke,
McDonald's, Delta Airlines,
and even Budweiser, they all
want a piece of the new
younger look of sports
Though there are a few
laws and limitations that the
sports industry has on ath-
letes who are younger, espe-
cially those under 18, if the
parent or guardian says yes,
then the athlete is fair game.

They can be photographed
with a can of beer, ,wearing a
pair of tennis shoes, or plas-

played basketball at Florida
State. Images of Randy Allen

Teena Wells re-elected OWC vice-chairman


OWC Trustees propose new Bachelor's in Education degree


In a move to expand the
Bachelor's degree offerings at
Okaloosa-Walton College,
the OWC District Board of
Trustees gave its approval for
the college to pursue a
Bachelor's in Education de-
gree program and added a
new major in Public Service
Management to OWC's cur-
rent Bachelor of Applied Sci-
ence degree program.
Meeting in regular session
on June 6, the board autho-
rized college president Dr.
Bob Richburg and OWC staff
to prepare and submit a pro-
posal by Aug. 1 to the Florida
Board of Education for devel-
opment of a teacher educa-
tion degree in elementary
and middle school teacher
education with specialization
in science and mathematics
and with the opportunity for
endorsements in reading and
English as a Second lan-


guage instruction.
"In light of the state's
pressing and unmet need for.
teachers, OWC's resounding
success with our two current
baccalaureate programs, and
the college's current teacher
education programs, this pro-
posed education degree
would be a great match for
the college to help meet the
regional and statewide need
for more teachers," said
Richburg.
OWC was accredited as a
level two bachelor's degree
granting institution in 2004.
The college has mor 3 than
400 students in bachelor's
programs in management
and nursing and recently
graduated its first 42
bachelor's degree students.
An additional 100 students
are involved in OWC's Edu-
cator Preparation Institute
(EPI) which trains those who


already hold a bachelor's or
higher degree to prepare for
teacher certification. OWC
has also provided freshman
and sophomore level educa-
tion courses for pre-educa-
tion majors for more than 30
years, including an extensive
practicum experience pro-
gram in local public schools
through which OWC stu-
dents gain vital classroom
experience in the early stages
of their degree program.
"We have been extensively
involved in teacher education
for nearly the college's entire
history," noted Dr. Jill White,
OWC Senior Vice president
and head of instruction. "Ex-
panding to a full-fledged
four-year degree program in
teacher education is a natu-
ral next step." White noted
that just as with OWC's cur-
rent bachelor's programs, the
proposed education degree


must be approved by the
state and the approval pro-
cess could be as short as one
year or take longer. "It's cer-
tainly possible that with
state approval we could start
a new bachelor's degree pro-
gram in teacher education as
early as Fall 2007," she said.
The new Public Service
Management emphasis that
trustees approved for the cur-
rent OWC baccalaureate de-
gree in Project and Acquisi-
tions Management goes into
effect for the upcoming Fall
2006 term. It will provide a
career ladder for individuals


with public safety, emergency
management and related as-
sociate degrees to gain super-
visory/management skills.
The college also offers four
other management options
within the degree program.
"This expansion of our ex-
isting bachelor's manage-
ment degree will dovetail
quite well with OWC's new
Associate degree program in
Emergency Administration
and Management that also
begins this fall," explained
White.
In other action OWC trust-
ees approved a $27,352,077


college general operating
budget for the fiscal year
2006-2007 which begins July
1. The budget is an 8.14 per-
cent increase over the previ-
ous year.
Included in the budget is a
two and one half percent (2.5
percent) increase for in-state
tuition and an increase in
other student fees. The ac-
tion follows the tuition range
set by the Florida Legislature
for public colleges. Even with
the increase, OWC officials
say the school's tuition is ex-

Sports news in review


By CHUCK HINSON
Pettersson wins Memo-
rial: With Carl Pettersson's
win last weekend at the Me-
morial in Dublin, OH, he now
qualifies for the U.S. Open.
Pettersson finished with a
three-shot lead and a 1-un-
der 71 for a two-shot victory
over Brett Weterich and Zach
Johnson.
The 28-year-old Swede told
reporters tht the sweetest
thing about the tournament
was that golfing legend Jack
Nicklaus was there to
present him with the crystal
trophy on the 18th green.
Pettersson was No. 51 in the
world ranking, just missing
the top 50 by one-hundredth
of a point getting into the
U.S. Open without having to
play the qualifying round,
but his second victory in the
past 12 months, coupled with
the Memorial win,'qidalified
him to move on to Winged
Foot.
Titans change stadium
name: The Tennessee, Titans'
stadium, known as the Coli-
seum, will now be called LP
Field. The 10-year, $30 mil-
lion naming rights deal was
announced at the stadium on
June 6 by team owners Bud
Adams and Rick Frost, who
is chief executive officer for
Louisiana-Pacific Corp.
The corporation, headquar-
tered in Nashville since 2004,
is taking the place of
Adelphia Business Solutions
whose name was on the sta-
dium since it opened in 1999,
but which filed bankruptcy
and stopped payments on
the 15-year, $30 million deal.


OWC Pitcher goes to
Philadelphia: Okaloosa-
Walton pitcher Michael
Dubee was the 547th pick of
the draft going to Philadel-
phia in the 18th round. His
father, Rich Dubee, is a
pitching coach for the profes-
sional baseball team.
Atlanta drafted Mosley
High School Cody Johnson
with the 24th pick of the first
round of the Major League
Baseball draft on June 6. He
was the highest pick of all
recruited from Northwest
Florida.
Williams out of French
Open: Venus Williams
dumped volleys into the net,
wild-returned balls, and was
not impressive at all in serv-
ing. Williams' total of more
than 70 errors cost her the
chance to advance in the
French Open tournament.
This was coupled with the
fact that she was playing 17-
year-old Nicole Vaidisova,
who reached the grand slam
semifinals after defeating
Williams 6-7 (5.), 6-1, 6-3 on
June 6.
Vaidisova also knocked off
current No. 1 seeded Amelia
Mauresom in the previous
round, to advance onto play
in the finals.
Stegall turns down Mi-
ami: Only three months af-
ter signing with the Univer-
sity of Miami Hurricanes
football team as won of the
2006 quarterbacks, Green-
wood, AK, native Daniel
Stegall backed away from the
university and the sport, to
pursue a career in baseball.
He was the seventh-round


pick selection in last week's
baseball draft with the New
York Mets.
Stegall was a .500 hitter
and a strong-armed out-
fielder for his high school
baseball team, leading them
to a national championship,
three months after signing
with Miami. He gave up the
football scholarship to start
playing baseball after he was
offered a signing bonus that
was apparently too good to
pass up.
Nadal wins French Open:
The native Spaniard endured
searing heat and three hours
of play before walking off the
court as the winner of the
2006 French Open on Sun-
day. The 20-year-old beat
Roger Federer 1-6, 6-1, 6-4,
7-6.
Federer was hoping to win
his fourth consecutive Grand
Slam championship, but
struggled in the last two
matches against Nadal.
The win at Paris gave
Nadal his 60th straight clay
court win in his career. He
also prevented the top-
ranked Federer from enter-
ing the record books as one
of only three men to hold all
four major titles at the same
time.
Hamlin wins at Pocono:
Denny Hamlin, a youthful
25, stunned race fans and
drivers alike as he roared in
to the winner's circle after
winning the Pocono 500 in
Long Pond, PA., this past
Sunday. It was his first
Nextel win of his career and
he says he owes it to video
games.

Playing safe in the backyard pool


With summer here, many
people are preparing their
pools for the season. As they
get ready for summer fun, the
U.S. Consumer Product
Safety Commission (CPSC) is
warning about the increase in,
drowning deaths reported in
inexpensive, inflatable pools
and again reminding parents
and caregivers to take criti-
cal steps that will help pro-
tect children from drowning
hazards in all types of pools.
Small inflatable pools,
about two-feet deep, can cost
as little as $50, and larger
pools, up to 4-feet deep and
18-feet wide, can cost under
$200. These pools often fall
outside of local building codes
that require barriers, and
may often be purchased by
consumers-without consider-
ing the barriers necessary to
help protect young children
from the dangers of pools.
Parents need to remember
that any pool can pose a
drowning risk and consider
the danger of water before
investing in an inflatable
pool.
To reduce the risk of drown-
ing, CPSC recommends lay-
ers of protection, including a
fence with self-closing, self-
latching gate that completely
surrounds the pool to prevent


unsupervised access by young
children. If the house forms a
side of the barrier, use alarms
on doors leading to the pool
area or a power safety cover
over the pool.
It is important to always be
prepared for an emergency by
having rescue equipment and
a phone near the pool. All
parents should learn cardiop-
ulmonary resuscitation
(CPR).
No one layer of protection
is foolproof to prevent drown-'
ing in pools. Use as many lay-
ers of protection as possible.
Multiple barriers and con-
stant supervision are essen-
tial to protecting children.
Many drowning deaths oc-
cur when young children are
not expected to be near the
pool area. In a CPSC study,
almost 70 percent of the vic-
tims were last seen in the
house or nearby on a porch or
in the yard before the inci-
dent. Drowning can occur in
the few minutes it takes to
answer the phone.
About 77 percent of the vic-
tims had been missing for five
minutes or less when they
were found. Precious time is
often wasted looking for miss-
ing children anywhere but in
the pool. Since every second
counts, always look for a


missing child in the pool first.
Parents may think that if
their child falls in the water,
they will hear lots of splash-
ing and screaming, and that
they will be able to come to
the rescue. However, many
times children slip under the
water silently. Even people
near the pool report having
heard nothing out of the or-
dinary.

For more information about
drowning prevention, read
CPSC's Swimming Pool
Safety Alert, Safety Barrier
Guidelines for Pools and How
to Plan for the Unexpected.
CPSC also recently updated
its Guidelines for Entrapment
Hazards: Making Pools and
Spas Safer, which gives infor-
mation on reducing drain en-
trapment dangers. CPSC rec-
ommends having a profes-
sional inspect pools and spas,
such as a local home inspec-
tor or pool contractor, for en-
trapment hazards and mak-
ing sure appropriate drain
covers are in place.
Copies of these free publi-
cations can be obtained by
going to CPSC's Web site at
www.cpsc.gov, or by calling
CPSC's Hotline at (800) 638-
2772, or by calling Rick

Seawall permitting


process is slow going


By Dotty Nist
Only one more state
permit has been issued in
connection with a post-
Hurricane Dennis
emergency seawall in Walton
County since January.
That state Department of
Environmental Protection
(DEP) permit was for a
fiberglass wall on the gulf
side of the Santa Rosa Golf
and Beach Club. The state
lists the completion date of
the structure as Dec. 8,2005.
A permit application for a
seawall at 4691 W. CR-30A
has been denied. A state
permit is a legal requirement
for seawalls or other coastal
armoring constructed under
a post-Hurricane Dennis


emergency order to remain in
place.
Two state permits, one
covering five properties, the
other one property, were
approved prior to January
2006. These permits will
allow armoring at the
following addresses to
remain in place: 739 Scenic
Gulf Drive, 747 Scenic Gulf
Drive, 757 A Scenic Gulf
Drive, 767 A Scenic Gulf
Drive, 775 Scenic Gulf Drive,
and 167 Village Beach Road
(Four Mile Village).
"Many more applications
are pending, with the
Department either reviewing
or awaiting additional
information," Sarah
Williams, a'DEP spokes-


person, commented on June
9.
From shortly after the
arrival of Hurricane Dennis
on the Gulf Coast in July
2005 until Oct. 28, 2005,
Walton County issued over
200 emergency permits for
seawalls and other coastal
armoring. The purpose of the
structures was to protect
homes and other beachfront
buildings faced with further
erosion-related damage. The
permits were issued with the
understanding that state
approval would be necessary
in order for the armoring to
be permanent.

SEAWALL in the Seagrove area.


Proposed Seagrove project



draws crowd, criticism


THIS ISA PORTION OF THE PARCEL owned by Doodle
Harris that sits roughly between Seaside and Seagrove. It
was the determination of the county that this parcel had not
been platted. The planning commission voted to approve the
small-scale land amendment to infill. The final determina-
tion will be made by the Board of County Commissioners on
June 13.


By Leah Stratmann
No item on tlp agenda of
last week's planning commis-
sion meeting drew more
people or more emotional tes-
timony than a plan by Doodle
Harris to develop a parcel of
land consisting of a bit more
than one acre fronting the
Gulf of Mexico in Seagrove
Beach. The issue was
brought before the commis-
sion by the county as a small-
scale amendment to change
the land designation from
Residential Preservation
Area, which would allow only
one home on the parcel, to
infill, which carries few re-
strictions. The property is lo-
cated on the south side of
County Road 30A, approxi-
mately one quarter of a mile


west of County Road 395.
Seagrove Beach resident
Gale Culling sent a letter to
the editor of this newspaper
and others in an effort to
rally the troops against this
proposal. Culling and others
retained the legal services of
Gary Vorbeck in an attempt
to prevent the rezoning.
"The charm of this area is
that there is some privacy.
He's [Harris] trying to make
this like Seaside where
people are all on top of each
other. I'm concerned with the
type of dwelling he's going to
build." Culling and others
viewed the change in desig-
nation as a "density grab."
"I want to appeal to you
not to allow this to happen
which will set a precedent. I


wouldn't buy a home with
another home cracker-boxed
next to it. I would ask you to
help me preserve it," Culling
said to the commissioners.
Harris was in attendance
at the meeting and said, "I
was told this parcel was infill
when I bought it and we were
told I could build eight units
on it. The only things I've
ever done is try and develop
the best I could in Seagrove.
I've been there a lot longer
than most folks here. All I
know is that I have a right
to do what I want to do with
my property. I had a right to
do more than I'm doing, but
I'm trying to get along with
my neighbors. It is true that
in Old Seagrove, parcels are
60-feet wide but I do know


what I have a right to do."
The opposition to. the pro-
posal 'was such that before
the meeting had ended, Har-
ris said he would build four,
rather than five residences
on the property in an effort
to appease the neighbors.
Harris commented that the
parcel in question was very
unique. "It is the only 240-
feet of beachfront that goes
all the way to the mean high
water line. The parcel has
nothing to do with either
Seaside or Seagrove. It is not
a lot of record and has no re-
strictions."
Attorney Vorbeck coun-
tered, saying, "Infill is not in-
tended for pieces of property

Wildfire threat high in

Walton County


By Jeffrey Powell
"Please do not burn
outdoors," stresses Chief Les
Hallman of the South Walton
Fire District, noting that an
unusually dry spring has
brought about an increased
threat of wildfire.


"We are very foi .. ate not
to have had the trouble Bay
County has had," Hallman
said. Bay County is currently
under a burn ban after a
series of wildfires.

see THREAT 4C


By Jeffrey Powell
The South Walton Fire
District is currently
participating in an exercise
called Fireball 2006. Fireball
2006 is an exercise
simulating deployment to
potential hurricane ravaged
areas. The goal of this
simulation is to prepare the
district's personnel for the
upcoming hurricane season.
Fireball 2006 is a "hands on"
simulation.
Firefighters will partici-
pate in a number of drills and
maneuvers that mimic a
variety of rescue techniques.
Department personnel will
also simulate living
conditions to better
appreciate their needs in
case of deployment.
Deployment teams prepare
to be self-sufficient because
they never know the extent
of damage in an affected
area.
.One of the main duties for
department personnel, if
deployed, would be search
and rescue. Most of these
search and rescue operations
would take place in


structures that have been
severely damaged.
Entering these damaged
structures can be very
dangerous to the firefighters,
small groups of which are
known as technical rescue
teams.
These technical rescue
teams are practicing their
extradition techniques in
and around World War II- era
bunkers left by the military
on what is now the Coffeen
Nature' Preserve. These
bunkers provide a safe but
realistic location for the
exercise.
Last year, the South
Walton Fire District
deployed three times out of
the local area. One of these
deployments was to the
Mississippi Gulf Coast after
Katrina's landfall.
"There is no such thing as
*too much practice," District
Chief Corey Harned points
out."
"You never know what you
are going to encounter next,"
added District Chief Marc
Anderson.
As the firefighters are

setting up camp they get a
call for a structure fire,
adding a certain relevance to
Chief Anderson's previous
comments. The call turns out
to be a false alarm and the
firefighters are back to work


on the encampment without
complaint.

conclusion of Fireball 2006.

THE APPROACH OF the 2006 tropical season's first storm
was apparent in Seagrove Beach on Monday, with resident's
storm preparations having made quite a dent in the bottled
water supply shelves at the Publix WaterColor grocery. As of
late Monday afternoon, warnings for Tropical Storm Alberto
extended from Longboat Key to Ochlocknee, Florida, with
Alberto hovering very close to hurricane speed at 70 miles
per hour.




Bronson activates

price-gouging hotline for

approaching storms


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson
has announced that his de-
partment has activated its
price-gouging hotline for the
approaching Tropical Storm
Alberto.

Under state law, it is ille-
gal for merchants to charge
exorbitant or excessive prices
for basic commodities -- in-
cluding gasoline, food, shel-
ter, water, ice and lumber -
during a state of emergency
unless the increases in prices
are attributable to price in-
creases incurred by mer-
chants. Violations of the law
carry a penalty of up to


$1,000 per incident or up to
$25,000 a day.
On Tuesday, June 13, Gov-
ernor Jeb Bush declared a
state of emergency through-
out Florida as a result of the
approaching storm.
Consumers who are the
victims of price-gouging or
believe they have witnessed
examples are encouraged to
call the Department of Agri-
culture and Consumer Ser-
vices price-gouging hotline at
1-800-HELPFLA (1-800-435-
7352). Every complaint will
be investigated.
"Price gouging will not be
tolerated," Bronson said.
"The practice is not only un-
conscionable, it is illegal."

ited the Sandestin Lions Club on June 5 for the club's an-.

at their dinner meeting at Cafe Provence. At the conclusion
of dinner, Past District Governor Jack Straub presented a
check for $4,000 to Dr. Richburg, to be added to the club's
prior donation of $6,000 to fund a new scholarship for OWC.
This scholarship will be to a needy student that has a prob-
lem with sight, hearing or speaking, or to one in an area
where one or more of these problems could be treated. Dr.
Richburg advised that the first scholarship, named the "Kim

Scrivener's Snafu


May Kill project


By Leah Stratmann
For more than five years,
the engineering firm of
Barnhill Barnhill and
Barnhill, LLC have been
working on a project for a cli-
ent involving a 1.17-acre par-
cel of land they were told was
zoned 'coastal center.' A
coastal center designation al-
lows builders to construct as
many as 12 structures per
acre. The plan for the project,
known as Elba Isle, involved
the construction of eight du-
plexes, along with a pool and
party house.
The area in question is
south of the Choctawhatchee,
roughly located behind
Smith's Antiques in south
Walton County. The property
is located approximately one-
eight of a mile north of For-
est Shore Drive.
Elba Isle was part of a very
lengthy agenda item at the
meeting of the county plan-
ning commission on June 8.
The county had discovered a
scrivener's error in the land's
designation when the survey-
ing information was trans-
ferred to the graphic informa-
tion system (GIS). The GIS
designation came back de-
claring the parcel of lanA as
residential preservation area
(RPA). Those areas identified
as RPA parcels are allowed
only one structure per: acre.
The county planning depart-
ment had reqi.-v.ted a small
scale map amendmentfto this
parcel so that the project
could move forward.
, Darrell Barnhill, who is also


a Walton County School
Board member, had no idea
this issue would turn into a
bone of contention. Several
members of the neighborhood
adjacent to the proposed
project were vehemently op-
posed to the project, citing
density to the area as incom-
patible.
"I tried to make the argu-
ment that, as an engineering
firm, I don't want to be here
as the owner's representative.
We (the firm) have done ev-
erything with no inclination
that the property was not
coastal center. It has taken,
five years to have the survey'
corrected. We were planning
to build to less than coastal
center density and we had no
idea there would be so much
opposition," Barnhill said.
"The neighbors voiced valid
questions about the project,
and I was trying to defend
something I shouldn't have
had to defend."
The planning commission
members voted four to three
to deny the change from RPA
to coastal center. If this deci-
sion is upheld by the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) at
their meeting on June 13, the
project is effectively dead.
Barnhill said it was possible
the BCC will ignore the rec-
ommendation of the planning
commission. "Will the BCC
vote to correct the GIS? If
they {the BCC) vote to uphold
the determination originally
given to me, the project will
go forward."

Hayes and Bruce Collier.




,Loot is worth every penny


By Leah Stratmann

If you are a fan of laugh-
ter, clever dialog and first-
rate theater, you should sepa-
rate yourself from some of
your personal wealth and im-
mediately buy a ticket to Sea-
side Repertory's production of
Loot.
Although billed as a Brit-
ish farce, it is more akin to
dark satire, having none of
the frenetic energy such as
can be found in other British
comedies, such as Noises Off.
Thanks to clever and timeless
costuming by Kathryn Fresh,
the era is any era and the ac-


tion surrounds the family,
friends and. nurse of the
newly departed Mrs.
McLeavy.
Playing her nurse, Teance
Blackburn returns to Seaside
Rep with yet another facile
performance as a lying,
scheming woman with seven
dead husbands and a sharp
lookout to her next betrothal.
This is a dialog driven play,
but Blackburn can say vol-
umes with a raised eyebrow
or a well-timed smirk, and
she does it with professional
relish here.
All of the actors play it
straight, with the exception of

AIDA tickets


now available


at OWC


Tickets are now available
for the theatrical production
"AIDA" at The Arts Center of
Okaloosa-Walton College in
Niceville. The Elton John
and Tim Rice musical will be
presented its original Broad-
way version by OWC's Hu-
manities, Fine and Perform-
ing Arts Division from July
12 to 15 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets
are available by calling the
Box office at 729-6000 or may
be purchased online at
www.owc.edu/arts for $20
adults and $15 for youth age
18 and younger.

AIDA is patterned on the
classic tale of forbidden love
between an Egyptian soldier
and an enslaved princess.
The show's pop-rock score,
stirring ballads, rousing cho-
ral numbers and more than
70 member cast are sure to
please crowds of all ages.
In its Broadway run, AIDA
was produced by Disney The-
atricals, earning rave re-
views, five Tony nominations
and winning for Best Origi-
nal Score. An all-star album
featuring songs from the
musical was released in 1999
with the song "Written in the


Stars", performed by Elton
John and Lee Ann Rimes,
becoming a hit on the Bill-
board charts.
The OWC production fea-
tures a cast of 40 stage per-
formers, 33 musicians and
singers, and 34 technical per-
sonnel involved in set design,
lighting, sound and stage
management. OWC has pro-
duced similar large-scale
musicals on the Mainstage of
The Arts Center every year
since 1997 to rave commu-
nity reviews.
"Our summer musical is
always a grand event," said
Dr. Cliff Herron, director of
the OWC Humanities, Fine
and Performing Arts Division
and director of the musical.
"We start work on the sum-
mer musical at least 10
months prior to th~ show and
it is the highlight of our year.
We all consider it a labor of
love and a gift to the commu-
nity to produce such an event
each July."
The Arts Center is cen-
trally located at 100 College
Blvd. in Niceville, easily ac-
cessible from Hwy. 285 and
Hwy 85 and the Mid-bay
bridge.

Golf carts cannot legally be
driven on public roads or bike
paths in Walton County, ac-
cording to a spokesman for
the Walton County Sheriff's
Office traffic division. Sgt. Joe
Preston said drivers appre-
hended disobeying this law
will be given "moving viola-
tion" citations with a fine of
$115.50. He said golf carts
cannot be registered or li-
censed, and may only be used
on private roads.

He explained the difference
between golf carts and low
speed vehicles. The latter,
when properly outfitted and
insured, may be licensed and
driven on public roads, by li-
censed drivers, where posted
speed limits are 35 miles per
hour or less. The one excep-
tion for golf carts, Preston
said, is when the cart is in-
cluded in a permitted parade
like the Fourth of July parade
on CR-30A.

The increase in golf carts on
public roads is becoming a
serious problem in south Wal-
ton, Preston said, and is ag-
gravated by real estate devel-
opers using them as promo-
tional features for property
sales and rentals. Advertising
that says "five minutes from
,the beach by golf cart," and
"free golf carts with property
purchase" is being used to
bolster sales. The sheriff's
department has already
warned two local developers
about their misleading ads,
and is preparing to crack
down on more.
.Golf carts seen parked at
beach accesses or other park-
ing lots will be issued a warn-
ing. Carts driven within sub-
divisions which have private
roads must have a driver at
least 14 years old.
A spokesman for the South
Walton Community Council


(SWCC) said their growth
management committee has
made a project of ensuring
that golf carts are used safely
and within the restrictions of
state statutes. The growing
number of golf carts on pub-
lic roads, especially those
driven by children, is fast be-
coming a safety hazard, ac-
cording to SWCC.
Visitors to the area have
complained there isn't
enough public education on
the subject. SWCC members
expressed hopes that coop-
eration among the sheriff's
office, the media, the South
Walton Tourist Development,
Council and the SWCC
growth management commit-
tee will help prevent acci-
dents involving golf carts and
will keep traffic moving on
public roads.

has been whether the

returned calls requesting
comment on the matter by
press time.
Lorna Patrick of U.S. Fish
and Wildlife commented on
June 12 there has as yet been
no application from Walton
County or from the private
individuals who constructed
seawalls/armoring for an
incidental take permit.
However, Patrick said
Walton County officials have
told her agency that the
county plans to apply for an
incidental take permit in
connection with its action as
issuer of the temporary
coastal armoring permits.
She said she also
understands that property
owners will apply for an
incidental take permit in
connection with impacts of
their armoring remaining in
place on a permanent basis.
Patrick said that a habitat


conservation plan is a
requirement for the
incidental take permit and
that she understands Walton
County has requested
proposals for consultants
interested in preparing the
plan, which may take up a
year to complete.
She added that the private
individuals applying for take
permits will likely be able to
use the county habitat
conservation plan to meet
their take permit
requirement.
Patrick said U.S. Fish and
Wildlife is also drafting on an
"interim agreement" with
Walton County that will
facilitate the agency and
county working together until
the incidental take permit is
in place, to resolve potential

The leading cause of

Traffic is heavy,
restaurants are
packed and lines are
long. That means
tourism is back in
full swing and the
Emerald Coast is
once again on the
traveling destina-
tion map.
If you have been in any gas
station from DeFuniak
Springs to Seagrove Beach,
or in a grocery store from
Navarre to Inlet Beach, you
have seen the long lines of oil-
covered tourists, bathing
suit-clad children and par-
ents on cell phones letting
grandparents know that
they're almost to their sum-
mer rentals. It is a rite-of-
passage for tourists and lo-
cals when the summer
months roll in, and a time
that we as locals all have to
be a little more patient.
This past weekend at the
Rosemary Beach West Indies
Market, a crowd of nearly
3,000 walked the lawns to see
more than 60 fine artists,
while enjoying Caribbean-
style music by a two-piece
steel drum band. The music
filled the air, the sun beat,
down and the smell of salt
water filled the nostrils.
While watching all those
attending and doing my
"management thing," I began
to take notice of all the dif-
ferent car tags from around
the country. Georgia, Ala-
bama, Mississippi and Ten-
nessee were there as usual,
but this weekend I saw more
and more cars, trucks,
camper and SUVs from
northern states than I had
ever seen before.
It has been the talk of the
tourist development councils
and the state that this year's
tourism would be much less
than last year. This would be
due to the rising gas prices
and the threats of inclement
weather and hurricanes.
Well, so far, so good for our
area's tourism industry. Ho-
tels, restaurants, attractions
and events are either sold out
or at least on an hour wait.
That means that people are
still making their way to the
Emerald Coast.
On Thursday evening, the
Weekly Rosemary Beach
Moonlight and Movies takes
place on the Western Green.

The first showing on June
1 brought out more than 300
people to the lawn. This past
week there were more than
400 movie-goers, who piled
on to the lawn two hours be-
fore the screen was set up,
just to get a seat.
Before making my way to
the movie night, I stopped in
to see old friends and man-
agement associates at Mattie
Kelly, where a mixture of lo-
cals and a few scattered tour-
ists were preparing to see
Free Monica on the concert
stage. The Summer Concert
Series at Mattie Kelly Plan-
tation once again has hun-
dreds trying to get front-row,
seats.
You could hear the tourists
asking what was going on as
they stood outside the con-
cert venue. They would soon
be counted as a small per-
centage of the continuous
crowd that will cover the
lawns, pavements and ven-
ues of the local resort towns
on the' Emerald Coast.
Over the past weekend, I
was able to take a walk down
to the pristine waters of Wal-
ton County and catch a
glimpse of why we are such
a popular travel destination.
Sitting on the boardwalk,
I saw two weddings taking
place on the beach, and re-
membered why so many
choose the beaches of the
Emerald Coast as the spot to
say their "I do's."
Wealth of arts and.enter-
tainment is one of the biggest
reasons that so many are at-
tracted to this area and why
so many eventually make
this their residence, or at
least have a second or third
home here.
No longer are we a small,
redneck backwater of the
state. We are now a thriving
shopping, entertainment and
travel destination that has
made a name for itself to ri-
val other such Florida loca-
tions as Miami, Palm Beach
and Orlando.
As summer season gets
into full swing, enjoy the
spotlight ride. It is a few
months of heavy traffic,
endless lines and tourists
that slam on their brakes at
the drop of a dime. Just re-
member, you know the rea-
son why they come and you
can have the satisfaction of
knowing why you never
want to leave.
