Sheriff weighs in on




"consolidation" issue


By Bruce Collier
Walton County Sheriff
(WCSO) Ralph Johnson held
a press briefing on June 16
to respond to suggestions
that he has made "overtures"
to the mayor and city coun-
cil to consolidate WCSO with
the DeFuniak Springs Police
Department (DFSPD), and to
"disband" the police depart-
ment.
These alleged overtures.
were the subject of a June 8
letter written by DFSPD
Chief Mike Adkinson. The
letter is addressed to DeFu-
niak Springs Mayor Harold
Carpenter and city council
members.
The letter describes a re-
fusal on the part of WCSO to
"make themselves available
to us to discuss even the most
basic of police operations."
Johnson and Capt. Danny
Glidewell met the press, and
began the briefing with
Glidewell reading a prepared
statement.
The two-and-a-half page
statement says "[t]he asser-
tion that a move is underway
for the Sheriff to absorb the
police department is false
and illustrates a lack of
knowledge of how such an-
action would take place."
"The simple fact is that
the process would begin only
if the City Council, Mayor or
City Manager asked- for a
proposal from the Sheriff.
The Sheriff would then de-
cide if he wanted to submit
such a proposal. Then, and
only then, would a proposal
be submitted," the statement
reads.
The statement character-
izes the "overtures" men-
tioned in Adkinson's letter as
"simply individuals stating
their personal opinion that
the Sheriff's Office could pro-
vide more efficient service to
the citizens at less cost to the
city taxpayers."
Both in his statement and
in response to questions,


SHERIFF RALPH JOHNSON (left) and CAPT DANNY GLIDEWELL (right) at June
16 press briefing.


Johnson called this "my per-
sonal opinion, based on
simple economics and the
economies of scale."
"When you have a com-
mand staff in place, why de-
velop a second command-
staff?" asked Johnson.
Included with a copy of the
written statement were two
packets of documents. The
documents include call his-
tory sheets of deputies being
dispatched when police offic-
ers did not respond, commu-
.nications between Adkinson
and Glidewell regarding
records of a possible WCSO
investigation of Adkinson,
and an exchange between
Adkinson and Glidewell con-
cerning "officer checks" of
DFSPD officers every 30
minutes by WCSO dispatch-
ers.
Glidewell's correspon-
dence maintains that WCSO
did not conduct an investiga-
tion of Adkinson, and de-
clines to implement the re-


quested officer checks, on the
grounds that they are "a sub-
stantive change in the scope
of services provided to the
City by the Sheriff's Office,"
and therefore "cannot be
implemented without discus-
sion with, and approval of
the Sheriff or myself."
Asked whether he refuses
to talk to Adkinson person-
ally, Johnson reiterated that
his staff attended to this, and
that Glidewell has always
been available to talk to
Adkinson.
"We're not saying that
[DFSPD] isn't doing its job,"
said Glidewell, adding that
DFSPD assists county offic-
ers.
Still, if the city council
wants to consolidate or per-
mit a "takeover," Johnson
said "I would consider it."
As to the fate of DFSPD
staff in the event of a consoli-
dation, Johnson said, "that's
all just theoretical."
Adkinson did not attend


the briefing, but commented
that the packet of call histo-
ries was largely "irrelevant,"
and that many of the calls
concerned unlocking locked
vehicles.
"I do take umbrage at the
sheriff's comment that he
can do it cheaper," said
Adkinson. "I don't think
that's the case, and I have
studies to back it up."
Adkinson added that he
believes there is "no support
on the city council for consoli-
dation."
"If [Johnson] won't talk to
me personally, we'll give him
someone to talk to. The sher-
iff and I need to work to-
gether," said Adkinson. "I am
still extending the olive
branch."

On perhaps the same note,
Glidewell concluded the
briefing by stressing that no
differences should be made
"between a green uniform
and a blue one."

Cit


plans for future


By Leigh Strickland
During a Monday work-
shop at the DeFuniak
Springs City Hall, city lead-
ers identified the top issues
facing the city for the next
two to five years and beyond.
With the help of facilita-
tor Dan Beeman, who has
also worked with Walton
County and cities throughout
Florida to develop similar
plans, the City Council of
DeFuniak Springs put to-
gether a plan which will now
go to various department
managers throughout the
city for further development.
The process, which
Beeman called "a systematic
way to provide a link be-
tween what the people of
DeFuniak want and what's
in their best interest," re-
sulted in a list of 11 "strate-
gic objectives" for the city.
The list was then prioritized
by council members.
At the top of the list was
to develop a master plan for
police and fire services. This
may include building a new
fire station south of the In-
terstate.


Developing a utility ex-
pansion plan was high on the
list. The council hopes to see
the physical boundaries of
the city grow to meet the area
that is serviced by the city.
Expanding utility services
would also help provide the
proper infrastructure for the
growing city.
Councilman Don Harrison
said, "We can't forget the ba-
sic infrastructure that people
have to have."
Another item high on the
list was smooth traffic flow.
With several new develop-
ments slated for the city, turn
lanes, traffic signals and new
streets will be necessary to
accomplish this goal.
Other top issues included
on the list would see zoning
classifications and the city
code book updated. Also, a
faster build-out for
DeFuniak's airport, the de-
velopment of an industrial
park, the revitalization of
downtown DeFuniak, and
the development of plans for
storm water management,
city facilities and recreation
facilities in the city.


Freeport council


considers


development


impact fees


By Ben Grafton
At the meeting of June 13,
2006, City Planner Latilda
Henninger advised the Free-
port City Council that the
developer of the Cypress
Creek Town Homes project
has made a request that the
project, originally approved
by the council for construc-
tion in a single phase, be re-
vised and the allowed to pro-
ceed in two phases.
The developer said that he
is not positive about the
strength of the market and
would like to build a reduced
number of units with which
to test demand. This move
would require the city to re-
scind its original letter of
approval.
Councilman Earl King said
he did not have a problem
with splitting the project, but
the developer will have to
start the approval process
over from the beginning.,
Henninger presented a
draft "fair share" ordinance
to bring the city into compli-
ance with Florida Senate Bill


'360. This bill requires devel-
opers to pay a "fair share" of
expenditures that are re-
quired to bring their pro-
posed projects into concur-
rency if the impact of. any
portion of the proposal ex-
ceeds the available capacity
of the infrastructure.
For example, if the traffic
loads that will result from a
project exceed the existing
road capacities, the developer
will be required to pay an
impact fee to be used to help
correct the problem. Copies
of the draft have been sent
to city legal and engineering
departments for review and
comments.
The city has several
months to review and re-
solve problems with the pro-
posed ordinance. Henninger
recommended one or more
workshops to review the sub-
ject. Mayor Mickey Marse
agreed to review the legal
and engineering opinions
and then schedule a work-

Rep. Brown reflects


on 2006 session,


county growth


By Bruce Collier
Florida House of Repre-
sentatives Donald D. Brown
reflected this week on the
successes and disappoint-
ments of the recently ended
2006 legislative session in
Tallahassee, and on growth
and growing pains in Walton
County'
House Bill 1363, an effort
to improve workforce hous-.
ing issues, created an "inno-
vation program," providing
"some financial and regula-
tory incentives" for provid-
ing workforce housing.
"The current mood in the
legislature is...we're sup-
posed to get out of the way
and 'incentivize' the private
sector."
The developers "very
rarely" lobby him, but most
are chiefly concerned with
"regulatory red tape."
"Generally I think the de-
velopers would say that regu-
latory impediments is the
biggest issue."
Repeal of joint and several
liability was Brown's biggest
concern, and the house
speaker's "top priority," said


Brown.
Under the joint and sev-
eral liability theory of tort
recovery, an injured plaintiff
suing multiple defendants
can seek full recovery of a
judgment amount against
the party with the deepest
pockets, without regard to
the degree of that
defendant's actual deter-
mined degree of fault.
"What the whole doctrine
has prompted over the
course of years is a well-de-
veloped strategy to seek out
deep pockets."
"Everybody pays their
fair share" under the new
law, "notwithstanding the
ability of other parties to the
suit to pay or not pay."
"It just seems inherently
fair that an injured defen-
dant can collect from the par-
ties responsible."
As for the effect ot the new
law, Brown admits that some
believe it will be negative,
and that seriously injured
defendants who cannot col-
lect would become a burden
on the state for their care.
Several studies, says


REP. DON BROWN at his office in DeFuniak Springs.


Brown, have indicated that
possibility of this effect
would be "extremely small."
Eminent domain was an-
other hot issue in the legis-
lature, in the wake of a re-
cent Connecticut court deci-
sion allowing the state to con-
demn "blighted" or slum
property.
Florida has clarified its
stand on eminent domain, in
an effort to prevent govern-
ment "taking" of property to
give it to other private own-
ers for the purpose of devel-
opment.
Brown is especially
pleased with a bill creating


periodically scheduled "sun-
set review" of all state agen-
cies, to determine their effec-
tiveness and to eliminate en-
trenchment of unnecessary
agencies.
Other bills reformed cam-
paign financing, electioneer-
ing, and the control of "last-
minute negative attack ads
that have become so preva-
lent."
"We finally repealed the
last piece of the intangibles
tax, the insidious intangibles
tax. It is now history."

Paxton considers


water rate increase


By Bruce Collier
The Paxton Town Council
held its regular meeting at 7
p.m. on June 13 at Paxton
Town Hall.
Present were Mayor
Wanda Smith, and council
members Ann Sexton,
Tommy Mathis, Jenice
Armstrong, and Joe Melton.
Also present was city attor-
ney Loriane Bytell.
Following a call to order
and approval of minutes and
bills, Joann Reeves requested
and received a one-time util-
ity rate reduction.
Tim Seay made a presen-
tation to the council on the
youth football program. Seay
reported that 100 partici-
pants had pre-registered,
and asked for use of the town
hall on July 1 and 8 for regu-
lar registration.
The town hall had been
booked for those days, so the
council approved use of an
open pavilic on city prop-
erty for registration. Seay
also received permission to
post signs for the program on
the city's practice field.
Seay also asked for clari-
fication of a "rumor" he had
heard about the county fund-
ing football, soccer, or base-


ball fields.
Council member Melton
said that "it's just talk" for
now, and that nothing was
certain. Mayor Smith said
that a budget workshop had
been scheduled for July 13,
but did not specify whether
the rumored funding would
be discussed at that time.
Bob Jones made a presen-
tation concerning a Commu-
nity Development Block
Grant(CDBG) for state and
federal disaster recovery as,
distance.
A resolution was intro-
duced and adopted by the
council approving submis-
sion for fiscal 2006 of an ap-
plication for CDBG Hurri-
cane Dennis disaster recov-
ery infrastructure assis-
tance, in the amount of
$250,000 in "federal grant
assistance for grant funded
construction."
The city intends these
funds to go to construct emer-
gency power generators for
its waste water lift stations,
city well No. 2, and the city
hall.
The council authorized the
mayor to act on behalf of the

Rotarians
According to William (Bill)
Kemper Jennings, who re-
cently spoke to the DeFuniak
Springs Rotary Club, board
certified lawyers are special-
ists who meet Florida's high
legal standards.
The certification was estab-
lished in 1982 by the Florida
Supreme Court and enables
consumers to identify attor-
neys who are qualified spe-
cialists.
There are more then 4,000
of Florida's 76,000 lawyers
certified in approximately
twenty different categories.
Jennings is board certified by
the Florida Bar as a special-
ist in both criminal and civil
trail law.
According to Jennings, the
certification tests were about
five times harder than the
bar exam and required con-
firmation of his experience, a
peer review assessment of his
competence, as well as ethics

Tax certificate sale a success


By LEIGH STRICKLAND
This year's tax certificate
sale held by the Walton
County Tax Collector's office
was held entirely on the In-
ternet, for the first time in
Walton County history.
"It was an incredible suc-
cess," Tax Collector Rhonda
Skipper said. "We're very
pleased with the outcome of
the sale."
The sale, which previously
took place at the Courthouse,
was conducted as an online
auction this year. It ran from
May 11 to June 1. More than
900,000 bids were received in
the auction, which offered
3,228 tax certificates for
pieces of land owned by
people who owe property
,taxes.
This year's auction involved
1,293 people from Florida
and other places, including
California and Maine. This is
a great increase from last
year's 47 bidders. It also
brought in $3,387,315.65, al-
most twice as much as last
year's $1,900,600.41.
"It's a tremendous benefit to
the county, as they receive
much more revenue," Skip-
per said. "The taxpayer ben-
efits because the more bid-


ders the more likely the cer-
tificate will be purchased at
a lower interest -rate saving
the taxpayer additional fees
once redeemed."
Interest starts at 18 percent
and during the auction is bid
downward.
Once the tax certificate is
purchased, the owner at-
tempts to recover the delin-
quent taxes, plus interest
from the property owner. If
this amount is not recovered
after two years, the owner of
the certificate can apply for
a tax deed and bid on the
property at the tax deed sale.
Bid4Assets, a company that
conducts online auctions,
was used for this sale. The
company collected commis-
sion fees for each transaction,
and charged the county noth-
ing.
One reason for doing the
sale this way is increased ef-
ficiency. The annual live auc-
tion, according to Skipper,
involves six employees for
two weeks, with the sale last-
ing two to three days and re-
quiring four employees. This
year's online auction was
completed in four hours.
"That saved the office a lot
of employee hours and -the
taxpayers a lot of money,"


Skipper said.
Though not held in a physi-
cal public location, Tax Col-
lector Rhonda Skipper said
that doing the sale on the
Internet satisfied the re-
quirement that it be held in
a public place.
"There's no more public
place than the Internet,"
Chief Deputy Tax Collector
Cory Godwin said. "A total of
34 counties handled the pro-
cess electronically."
Some may wonder, though,
if conducting the auction on-
line with no other means of
participating is fair to all who
wish to have a part in the
process.
According to Godwin, train-
ing information on how to
participate was available on
the auction website. Addi-
tionally, he said, a training
session was held at the Oka-
loosa-Walton College campus
in DeFuniak Springs onApril
25 to help prepare people for
the sale. Computers were set
up at the tax office and in the
public library, Skipper said,
to allow everyone to join in.
While there's no question
that the Walton County Tax
Collector's Office made every
possible good-faith effort to
make it easy for the public to


Sheriff's deputy injured in car chase


A Walton County Sheriff's
(WCSO) deputy was treated
and released for injuries sus-
tained in a June 16 pursuit
of a vehicle reportedly stolen
in Okaloosa County.
According to information
released by WCSO Capt.
Danny Glidewell, WCSO dis-
patch received a report at
12:32 p.m. that Okaloosa
County Sheriff's (OCSO)
deputies and Fort Walton
Beach police ofticers w .ere in
pursuit' of a stolen vehicle on
Highway 98.
The vehicle was traveling
Seas Ao Hw 98, ahd the pur-
" suerfslost conttact with it near
Sthe Walton Couhty line.
A Walton County Traffic
deputy located the vehicle
and the pursuit was
reinitiated.
The driver of the vehicle
attempted to strike a Walton
County Beach unit, and to hit
deputies who were spiking
the road to stop it.
A WCSO deputy was
forced off the road. His ve-
hicle caught fire and was to-
tally destroyed. The deputy
was treated at an area hospi-
tal and released.
The pursuit ended in Bay


County, where Bay County pants of the car. Their names

participate, there are con-
cerns about holding the sale
exclusively on the Internet.
Florida statute 197.542
simply allows for the sale to
be conducted electronically,
but does not specifically state
that this should be done to


the exclusion of any other
means, nor does it address
how to allow people who are
not computer-savvy to par-
ticipate. Thus far, there have
been no legal challenges to
the statute, so there is no
case law to answer the ques-


tion definitively.
"The Legislature probably
needs to revamp and update
the statute. So many things
are done electronically now,"
said Godwin. "It seems to be
the way everything is
headed."

What really matters when it comes to

Question: What is required when I, as'a private citizen, sell a vehicle to
another person? Am I liable for the vehicle until the new owner obtains a
title?

The facts:

A Notice of Sale and/ or Bill of Sale (HSMV form 82050) needs to be com-
pleted by the seller. If you wish to use this form as a Bill of Sale, it would
need to be picked up at the Tax Collector's Office and completed at the time
the title is signed over to the buyer. This form is also available online at
www.waltontaxcollector.com or at either of the Walton County Tax Collector's
Offices.

If the form is not picked up prior to the sale, the seller would need to come
into the Tax Collector's Office as soon as possible after the sale and complete
the Notice of Sale and / or Bill of Sale form.

An owner/co-co-owner who has transferred a motor vehicle or mobile home
along with a properly endorsed title to the purchaser shall not, be deemed
subject to civil liability for the operation of such vehicle or mobile home.

Dear Editor,

I think people that choose to live in the city expect (and in
some communities, demand) rules for daily living that one
would not expect in a rural area where your neighbors are
twenty or thirty acres down the road, rather than 20 or 30
feet which we find in cities. I think people in cities expect
quiet neighborhoods, clean streets, neighbors that respect
and try to preserve property values, .and a city council that
is responsive to citizens and their needs. -
Clearly DeFuniak Springs has a council which could care
less for citizen input. Just one example would be Monday's
planning session where citizen input was prohibited, but one
can attend most any council meeting and notice the total
lack of citizens present. I think most citizens have learned
their participation in the affairs of government are un-
wanted. Nor can you find any other public official who is
any more responsive to citizen complaints than is
our council.
The exception to the above would be the Historic District.
You won't find slumlords that allow their tenants to turn
their yards into landfills, 15 or more legal, or illegal immi-
grants living in a two-bedroom apartment, wrecked cars
dumped in front yards, boom boxes permeating the neigh-
borhood night and day, streets that are dust bowls and speed
limits are a joke.-
One thing you are not troubled with is tourists. There are
no signs directing people to the neighborhoods abandoned
by our City Fathers.
Personally, I find it amusing that leaders who have not
profited from the mistakes of the past and have yet to man-
age the present with any degree of success, are planning for
the future.

David Herring
DeFuniak Springs


Editor,
Often I am asked by reporters, "What harm does it do to
burn a flag?" This question usually.comes.from young men
and women, most of whom aren't veterans, and I frequently
:sense that they really don't understand why this issue is
important.
Recently, I was asked this question: "Tommy Lasorda told
the story of a flag burning during a Dodger game in 1976
where Rick Monday ran out on the field and tore the flag
away from a protestor. When they became aware of what
had happened; the crowd stood and sang 'God Bless America.'
Doesn't that prove that we don't need the flag-protection
amendment?"
I,was reminded of what Gen. Patrick H. Brady, Medal of
Honor recipient, said. He pointed out that nobody can change
your mind or my mind about protecting our flag. It's the
children of America that we have to think about.
What happens when they lose, or are no longer taught,
respect for our,flag? What will happen when an enemy
threatens our nation, or even attacks our country, and our
moral fiber has become so desensitized -- our patriotism has
,been so eroded -- that ordinary citizens aren't willing to stand
and fight for the United States?
Brady reflects on those who have died in battle, and those
who risked their lives for this great country. He says that
the men who wear the Medal of Honor risked their lives for
their country many of them died -- but he wonders if they
would be willing to risk their lives for the "country we are
becoming."
Then I think about those thousands of men and women
singing "God Bless America" in Dodger Stadium. Why were
they dping it? Well, obviously they did it because they loved
their flag.
Throughout the lives of those who rose to their feet, we
had laws protecting Old Glory. Many probably risked their
lives in her defense. They understood that "the tree of Lib-
erty is watered with the blood of patriots."
That's why they stood and sang.
But what of this generation, and of the next? What are
they being taught about love of country? How many of them
will start each school day pledging their allegiance to our
flag, as most of us did? How many of them will learn the
proper way to respect her, and what she means and why
patriotism is important?
Twenty years from now, when another Rick Monday
snatches a flag from someone who is trying to burn it, will
the crowd still sing "God Bless America," or will it rise in
anger because the game has been delayed?
It's certainly true -- as we've heard people say -- one per-
son burning a flag, or urinating on it, or defecating on it, or
trampling it under his feet, will not harm Old Glory. But it's
not true that no harm is done.
The harm is done if the American people fail to respond, to
such vile and hurtful conduct. The harm is done only if, by
our apathy, we condone the defiling of the banner that has
draped the caskets of our American heroes. Edmund Burke
once said: "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil
is for good men to do nothing."
Failure to protect our flag by law is not a celebration of
liberty; it is the celebration of evil. A great nation cannot
preserve its greatness by turning a blind eye and a deaf ear
to that which is wrong, to that which is destructive, to that
which is immoral and evil.
What harm does it do to burn a flag?
Over time it destroys the very fabric of our nation. It un-
dermines the goodness that makes us great, and it ensures
that future generations will not stand and spontaneously
sing 'God Bless America" because they will not know that -
once God did.

Daniel S. Wheeler,

and industry to make our economy grow and thrive for gen-
erations to come?
For too long, this county has put all its eggs in the tourist's
beach basket. For too long, we have enjoyed the fruits of a
runaway real estate market and patted ourselves on the
back over our good fortune. Did we really think that was
going to go on forever?
Now we are seeing tourism numbers begin to slide and
the real estate market begin to wane. Elected officials are
trying to woo us with short term answers for our long term
problems, hoping we won't think too much about having
wasted years of opportunity to get ready for this day.
And it's not just county government that has dropped the
ball. The DeFuniak Springs city government has, for years,
allowed its one small industrial park be full enough that no
other industry can locate there, and they've not taken a
single step toward building another one.
If you do not build it, they will not come.
Thankfully, not all government has been asleep at the
wheel. Freeport has been paying attention. They got their
industrial parks up and running and businesses have been
flocking to locate there. The landscape there is changing
almost daily.
Major development has not hit Paxton yet, but that coun-
cil is already laying the foundation for growth, so they'll be
ready when their day arrives.
There is a new man at the helm of the Economic Devel-
opment Council of Walton County, and while no one expects
instant results, we all do expect results.
The county and city governments must start working
closer than they ever have before with the EDC and prove
that they are serious about looking out for the long term
economic future of Walton County.
Or maybe we just need to hire another consultant and
study this some more.


Correction


In the story "McCullough Road proposed abandonment
draws fire" (6/15) the Herald received incorrect information
regarding the name of a property owner. The name should
read Tommy S. (Steve) Herring, not David Herring, who is
a DeFuniak Springs Police officer. The Herald regrets any
confusion or inconvenience this may have caused.



Editor,
On Monday, June 12, 2006, our youngest daughter was in
an auto accident south of Freeport. This letter is to thank
the wonderful people who stayed with her and helped her.
Ve did not get the last name of Kelly and the chaplain at
Sacred Heart Hospital who held her hand and prayed for
Aer.
You are both God-sent and a blessing to our family. We
would like to thank you each for the great service you ren-
dered for our child on our behalf, the call to let us know that
she was okay and on her way to the hospital and what hos-
pital she was being taken to.
To the staff of the fire department who came to her res-
cue, to the staff and doctor who provided her care in
Healthmark Regional, we can only say thank-you from a
grateful mother and a grateful father. Your kindness did;
not go unnoticed. May God bless you in your everyday needs.
of life. Thank you very much. We appreciate your help and
your caring for a stranger in need.

Editor,
Over the past three years, we have made every effort to
provide accurate information for our senior citizens. The
U.S. government and Medicare gave us erroneous informa-
tion, relating to information in the Medicare & You booklet.
The information relating to the $2,850 and the $3,600 was
at best confusing. The 2005 amount was $3,600 while 2006
was $2,850. Of the $2,250 Medicare pays, only $1,500 and
senior citizen pays $750 + $2,850 = $3,600.
In addition, the senior citizen must pay a premium of $445
to $1,500 in a given year. If the latter amount is the amount
paid, it will wipe out the current $1,500 of Medicare and
thus a zero amount!
The 95 percent and 5 percent will only take effect at $5,100
plus the premium. The $424 is the average each month, plus
the premium each month.
We can only tell you that it's not worth the effort for what
you get, if any!

Editor,
Monday, 06/12/06 I was in a car accident in Freeport, near
the motorcycle shop. There were several people there that
assisted me. Of course I can't remember all the names I
hard, but two did stand out. They are Kelly and Ronnie
(the chaplain).
I just wanted to thank all of you so much for helping me.
A special thanks to a lady who pulled the pictures of my
nephews out of my car. Those pictures just happened to be
my favorite. I am doing well, just some scrapes and bruises.
Feel very lucky! My car was of course totalled, but they can
always be replaced.
Thank you again to everyone who was there. God bless
you all. So though I may have had a rough day Monday,
there was a silver lining. I am expecting a baby in about 8
months. God bless.

Editor,
I live in the Juniper Lake area and I happen to like cats.
Bat more important, I keep cats to keep snakes away.
Last Week, a dog came in my yard and killed three of the
kittens, because some inconsiderate dog lover let his dog run
all over the neighborhood, and this isn't the first time. I am
an elderly lady and had quite a bit of difficulty trying to dig
holes to bury the kittens.
Having said that, I believe it is time for so-called dog lov-
ers to keep their dogs in their own yard. If they care so
much for dogs, keep them home or get rid of them. The rest
of the neighborhood doesn't want them or need them. We
have pets of our own we like to have around and not have to
worry about some run around dog killing them just for sport.
If a dog owner cares about his dog, show me. Keep your
dog in your own yard.
A very upset Granny,
RM Wilson

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 22, 2006


Brown


From Front


insurance reform bill passed
"did not go nearly far
enough," said Brown.
"Property and insurance
in Florida right now are in
crisis."
"Meteorologists tell us that
we are in about a 20-year
cycle of increased hurricane
activity. The '04 and '05 storm
season made that painfully
apparent to us."
The Citizens Insurance
Corporation, Florida's tax-
subsidized insurer of last re-
sort, is looking at a possible
deficit of $3 billion, says
Brown.
The vast ma.ijoity,* of dam-
age, says Broi n, was done to
coastal dwellings. Thus, citi-
zens living in the interior are
assessed to pay for the losses
of coastal property owners.
o'., r. wanted a distinc-
tion made in the bill between
homestead and non-home-
stead -'t L '.
A provision was placed in
the b! .di:g homes valued
at over 1 million ineligible
for Citizens Insurance wind
coverage, but that will not go
into effect for three years,
said Brown.
"I was extremely disap-
pointed that got watered
down," said Brown. "They just
didn't have the guts to do it."
"It obligates us to continue
to subsidize homes that are
valued in excess of a;million
dollars, coastal homes, and I
think that is obviously bad."
The bill also contains a
$250 million appropriation to
offer matching grants of up to
$5,000 for defined "mitiga-
tion" improvements, includ-
ing retrofits, to prepare
homes for future hurricanes.
"This program is going to
be up and running very
soon."
On the subject of post-
Katrina construction of sea-
walls on Walton County prop-
erty, Brown said that he re-
ceived "significant lobbying
from the county as they navi-
gated through that," though
no lobbying was done by in-
i ividual commissioners, by
|County Administrator
Ronnie Bell or attorney David
Hallman.
"I had been helping to fa-
cilitate communications be-
tween the county and the [De-
partment of Environmental
Protection]."
"What has transpired is
that the county got permis-
sion under some vague terms
from DEP to issue emergency
permits. They issued the per-
mits. Now the issue has be-
come that DEP and the fish
and wildlife people claim that
the county probably didn't,
do as much as they should
have to inform citizens that
the permits were temporary.
I think they did tell them that
they were temporary per-
mits."
"Many of the property
owners, once they got that
permit, built structures that
they had no intentions of re-
moving."
"There are a few that ap-
parently went beyond their
property and built structures
of a more permanent nature
on public property, that is,
i south of the high-tide mark,
highwater mark."
"Those individuals prob-
ably have a serious problem."
An added twist came from
federal assertions that these
constructions may have vio-
lated the laws regarding en-
dangered species.
"My role in that whole
thing has been, more than
anything else, to try to facili-
tate communications because
I have no direct authority
over DEP or the Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission.
"I have begged and pleaded
with DEP to treat the county
and citizens in a fair and
even-handed way, but I have
no direct authority to require
them to do anything."
Brown's "biggest disap-
Spointment" was what he con-


siders the failure to eliminate
red tape and bureaucracy
and "the lack of real reform"
in the property and casualty
insurance bill.
As for the state's budget
"surplus," Brown acknowl-
edges that it has increased,
but "the bad news in the bud-
get" is that the "bill has be-
gun to come in on the [school]
class size amendment" and
"that alone consumed a sig-


nificant percentage of the in-
crease," as did the voluntary
pre-kindergarten program.
"Existing programs are
consuming larger and larger
percentages of our discretion-
ary budget.
"The number that was
quoted was quoted as a real
increase, and there wasn't
enough attention paid to the
claims on that. If greater and
greater claims are being put
on the increases, if the in-
creases ever slow down, we're
going to be in a mess."
This concern is com-
pounded as discretionary
programs become non-discre-
tionary.
Brown fears the tempta-
tion to increase taxes in the
event of a revenue slowdown
would "kill the goose that laid
the golden egg."
"We can't perpetuate this
kind of growth forever."
Raised in Portland, Brown
admits that he is "sort of bi-
polar" on the subject of Wal-
ton County growth.
"The truth is we've been
discovered. There's a thou-
sand people a day coming to
Florida. As much as we would
like to think that we can go
back to those lazy summer
days whenever I was a young
fellow, we can't."

The "real downside" to de-
velopment in Florida, said
Brown, is that "our expecta-
tions are totally unrealistic."
"Concentration of risk" of
high-priced property in
coastal areas creates a "seri-
ous problem."
"Growth management is
going to become an extremely
important issue."
Though in favor of free-
market, low-regulatory sys-
tems, Brown is "conflicted"
about growth, and the need
to find a balance.
He likes the idea of devel-
opers taking some financial
responsibility for road con-
struction in the areas near
their developments.
As for the widening of Hwy.
331, Brown is optimistic.
"Look what progress has been
made in three or four years."
Widening the Clyde B.
Wells Bridge is "problematic,"
with the DEP wanting "every-
thing that is there taken out,
and they want four lanes
built from hill to hill."
"What they would suggest
that we do with that bridge
would total up to somewhere
between six and seven hun-
dred million dollars."
"But we're dealing with
very powerful influences that
impede the ability to get that
solution right now."
Brown will speak on the
2006 legislative session this
Friday at the Walton County
Chamber of Commerce's July
First Friday Breakfast, held
at McLain's Family
Steakhouse in DeFuniak
Springs.

Did you know that Florida has more thunderstorms and more lightening strikes than any other state? Florida
averages more than 10 deaths and 30 severe injuries from lightning each year. Of those injuries and deaths,
approximately 50 percent occur to people involved in recreational activities and almost 40 percent were water
related. The main hazards associated with thunderstorms are lightning and hail.
Florida's tropical sea breezes provide the perfect climate for the making of thunderstorms. Moisture is one of
the ingredients needed for thunderstorms to form and Florida has plenty of moisture in the form of water vapor
near the ground. We are surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. When
the sun shines, the moist air near the ground gets hot and when the air about three miles above the ground is
colder, an unstable atmosphere develops.' This unstable atmosphere can causes clouds and rain to form.
Lightning is an electrical discharge that results from the buildup of positive and negative charges within a
thunderstorm. When the buildup becomes strong enough, lightning bolts appear. A bolt of lightning reaches
about 50,000 degrees Fahrenheit, and the rapid heating of the air near the lightning causes thunder.
Most thunderstorms cause little damage and are only about 15 miles wide and last only about thirty minutes.
But sometimes these storms can grow large and very powerful. Severe thunderstorms can produce floods, hail,
dangerous winds and tornadoes. Sometimes hail forms inside thunderstorms and it can cause damage to cars
and windows. Hail the side of baseballs or larger has occurred over 35 times in the State of Florida over the
past 50 years.
You can prepare for a thunderstorm by knowing what to do beforehand.
Learn the thunderstorm danger signs. Dark, towering, or threatening clouds.
Have a disaster supply kit on hand containing a flashlight, portable battery-operated radio, extra
batteries, a first aid kit, and emergency food and water.
Make sure all family members know how to respond after a storm and teach everyone how to turn
off the water, power and gas, if it becomes necessary.
Teach children how and when to call 9-1 -1.
During a storm if you are indoors secure windows and doors and listen to local TV and radio stations for the
latest storm information. Have a battery operated radio on hand in case the electricity goes out. Do not handle
any electrical equipment or telephones during a thunderstorm because lightning could follow the wire. Avoid
bathtubs, water faucets and sinks because pipes can transmit electricity.
If you are outdoors, attempt to get into a building or car. If no building is available, get to an open space and
squat as low to the ground as possible. Never stand beneath a large tree that is out in the open. Avoid tall
structures such as towers, power and telephone lines. Stay away from golf clubs, tractors, bicycles, fishing
rods and camping equipment. Also stay away from rivers, lakes and other bodies of water. If you feel your
hair stand on end (which means lightning is about to strike), droop to your knees and put your hands on your
head. Do not lie flat on the ground!
If you are in a car pull to the side of the road away from trees, power and If youhave a question or comment contact:

Attorney General /AARP hold



Consumer Protection Forum


By BRUCE COLLIER
The office of the Florida
Attorney General and the
American Association of Re-
tired Persons (AARP) held a
Consumer Protection Forum
on June 16. The forum was
held at the Chautauqua Hall
of Brotherhood in DeFuniak
Springs.
Though the invited key-
note speaker was Attorney
General Charlie Crist, a prob-
lem with travel arrange-
ments compelled Crist to
send his regrets. Deputy At-
torney General Clay Roberts
spoke in his stead.
Other speakers included
Kathleen Von Hoene, a senior
assistant attorney general
specializing in prosecution of
consumer fraud, AARP Asso-
ciate State Director Charles
Milsted (who acted as master
of ceremonies), Florida De-
partment of Law Enforce-
ment cyber-crimes expert
Mary McLaughlin, and the
attorney general's senior gen-
eral counsel, Jack Shreve.
The speakers addressed a




Paxton

From Front

city in signing all forms and
contracts necessitated by the
application.
The council was advised
that all bids have been tabu-
lated on the construction of a
water system.
It was suggested that some
bid items could be individu-
ally negotiated, but Jones
said that the CDBG regula-
tions do not permit such line-
item negotiation. The city
must either accept the low bid
or reject all and start from the
beginning.
Jones presented the couhn-.
cil with a schedule of the cur-
rent water rates, along with
a proposed new rateeehed-
ule.
Under the new schedule,
rates would increase by 88
cents per user per month.
This is expected to be ad-
equate to cover any loans and
budgeted expenses incurred
with the new system.
Council member Mathis
proposed that the council
agree to apply for rural devel-
opment funds, that the mayor
and clerk be authorized to
sign documents and applica-
tions, and that the rate in-
crease be approved to become
effective on or around the
closing date of the loan. This
was estimated to be within
60 and 90 days.
"We don't have much time,'
said Mathis, whose motion
was carried without opposi-
tion.
The mayor and city attor-
ney had no new items to re-
port.
Miscellaneous items of
business included an agree-
ment to make the city's live-
stock pavilion accessible to
the handicapped.
The Paxton Ruritans' mo-
tion to install a plaque hon-
oring members from the
1950s to the present was de-
ferred pending more informa-
tion on its size and proposed
location.
The council agreed to con-
sider construction of a city
events marquee at the next
budget meeting.
bThe council was also ad-
vised that the one of the city's
sewer pumps was "hanging
by a thread," with the costs
for replacement motors esti-
mated at $4,000 each.
The city's ballfield was re-
ported to have its light poles
in place, with lights to be in-
stalled possibly within a
month.
The meeting adjourned at
7:47 p.m.

crowd of about sixty, many of
them senior citizens. The au-
dience included several state
and local officials and law en-
forcement officers, including
State Senator Durell Peaden,
Supervisor of Elections Bobby
Beasley, Walton County
School Board Chairman Bill
Laird, Walton County Sher-
iff Ralph Johnson, and DeFu-
niak Springs Police Chief
Mike Adkinson.
Subjects covered included
consumer fraud, medicare
and prescription drug fraud,
. computer crimes, and the at-
torney general's "Seniors v.
Crime, Inc." program.
One statistic offered was
that 30 percent of scam vic-
tims are over 65 years old.
Von Hoene said that Florida
seniors are an attractive tar-
get for con artists because
thet tend to have money, are
trusting and non-confronta-
tional, and are inclined to
believe people who appear to
be sincere or in need.
Hoene urged the audience
to get all agreements up front
and in writing, to have an
attorney or relative review all
documents, ask to see li-
censes and certifications of
contractors or repairmen, and
to call the attorney general to
report any kind of scam.
Another statistic said that
50 percent of telemarketing
victims are aged 50 years or
older. Telemarketers are
trained not to take no for an
answer, and to resort to high-
pressure or even insulting
tactics to force a sale.
Cyber crime exprt


McLaughlin offered a lengthy
list of computer-based scams
and frauds, including identity
theft, bank account fraud,
and "something for nothing"
schemes involving estate as-
sets, lottery prizes, and travel
offers.
"The operator is the
computer's weakest link,"
said McLaughlin. She
stressed the importance of
virus protection and informa-
tion security systems, as well
as "due diligence" in checking
and verifying all items re-
ceived via e-mail.
The forum offered a table
full of brochures and pam-
phlets on consumer protec-
tion and online safety, includ-
ing www.secureflorida.org,
the attorney general's
hotline, 1-866-9-NO-SCAM,
and its online identity theft
victim kit, the Federal Trade


Commission's 1-877-ID-
THEFT hotline, and AARP's
online identity theft seminar,

New therapy for swallowing disorder now offered in DeFuniak Springs


RehabCare at Chautauqua
Rehabilitation and Nursing
Center has introduced a new
treatment for patients who
suffer from dysphagia, a
painful and often debilitating


swallowing disorder.
Known as VitalStim
Therapy, the treatment uses
non-invasive electrical stimu-
lation to help re-educate the

throat muscles needed for
swallowing. Cleared for use
by the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration, VitalStim
Therapy is applied externally
and delivers small electrical
currents to the neck to stimu-
late inactive or atrophied
swallowing muscles. With
repeated therapy, throat
muscles are re-trained until
the patient reaches an opti-
mum level of swallow func-
tion.
"VitalStim Therapy is
truly a breakthrough in treat-
ing dysphagia," said Kara
Plaks, rehabilitation director
at CRNC. "Since introducing
VitalStim, we have seen
some exceptional outcomes
that simply would not have


been possible with traditional
therapies. Patients have
shown dramatic improve-
ments in their ability to swal-
low and have returned to a
more normal diet- and a bet-
ter quality of life- much
sooner than we thought pos-
sible."
Mary Spears is one patient
who has noticed significant
improvement with swallow-
ing after VitalStim therapy.
Spears was admitted to
CRNC with.a feeding tube for
all of her nutrition and hydra-
tion. She was unable to drink
or eat by mouth due to chok-
ing. Spears' ability to swal-
low improved with tradi-
tional swallowing therapy
and was upgraded to a puree


diet with "honey" thick liq-
uids. "We then introduced
VitalStim therapy with
Spears," said Crystal Rowell,
a speech pathologist. "At the
end of eight sessions, she was
eating regular food and liq-
uids without difficulty." Vital
Stim helped me and now I eat
my favorite foods. I don't
need the feeding tube any-
more," Spears said.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 22, 2006


Crash on 1-10 kills one, injures 10


One person was killed and
10 more injured when a van
overturned June 13 on Inter-
state 10 near DeFuniak
Springs.
Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) investigator Cpl. K.D.
Davis reported that a Ford
van was driving west on 1-10
in the inside lane. Driving the
van was Shawn Patrick Win-
chester, 32, of 210 Third
Street in Donaldsonville, LA.
The vehicle was carrying ten
other passengers, all Louisi-
ana residents.
Winchester told invesliga-


tors that he turned to look
over his right shoulder, caus-
ing his vehicle to drift off the
road into the grass median.
Winchester overcorrected,
steering to the right, causing
the van to rotate clockwise
and move northwest onto the
north shoulder of the road.
The van entered a concrete
ditch, overturned, and en-
tered the wood line. Four of
the passengers were ejected
from the van, which struck
several trees before coming to
rest facing north.
Christian Monica


Chatman, 24, of 503
Catherine Street in
Donaldsonville, was killed.
Winchester, Taija Pearley,
10, Jaylen Pearley, 7, and
Aneiya Pearley, 4, received
minor injuries.
Tiffany Miles, 17, Janei
Pearley, 9, Lequita Pearley,
35, Andreana Pearley, 10,
Courtney Winchester, 11, and
Quan Pearley, 28, received
serious injuries.
According to the report,
only the driver was wearing
a seatbelt. Neither alcohol or
drugs were a factor.


WILLIAM CHRISTOPHER VILLAR, 22, was killed in his Milton residence on June 15
when a car crashed through his roof.

BEFORE THE HALL OF BRO THERHOOD was built, the Chautauqua Winter As-

Chautauqua Assembly plans in the works


By: Leigh Strickland
Something that began
around the time of the found-
ing of DeFuniak Springs con-
tinues today with new direc-
tion as plans for the next
Chautauqua Assembly are in
the works.

Longtime director of the
Assembly Diane Pickett has
recently passed on the torch
of leadership. New president
Ann Robinson is currently
working to help., the
Chautauqua Assembly move
forward, toward its original
goal of providing a place for
"lifelong learning and civil
discourse." j .
Robinson and a,,12-mem-
ber advisory council made up
of DeFuniak Springs and
Walton County residents are
putting together the pro-
gramming for the upcoming
Assembly, to be held in Feb-
ruary. Though specific pro-


grams have not been chosen
yet, Robinson hopes to see a
focus on home in the next
Assembly's programming.
Saturday, specifically, should
be a day for home and family,
she said, because that is the
day when local people who
work during the-week will
most likely be able to attend
with their families.
In addition to the pro-
grams offered and public
speakers visiting, the Assem-
bly will also likely include
home tours and porch parties.
One of Robinson's main
goals, she said, is to see resi-
dents of DeFuniak Springs
and Walton County engage in
ownership of Chautauqua
Assembly.
The original Chautauqua
Assembly began in
Chautauqua, New York as a
place of learning for Sunday
School teachers. It has been
held there for nine weeks


each summer since then and
is now in its 132nd season,
though it is no longer a reli-
gious school.
In the early 1880s,
Chautauqua sought a winter
home and found one in the
small settlement,of DeFuniak
Springs, holding the first win-
ter assembly here in 1885.
The Florida Chautauqua was
held in DeFuniak until 1920
and saw many important
speakers take its stages, in-
cluding United States presi-
dents.
The Chautauqua Assem-
bly returned to DeFuniak
Springs in 1996. The upcom-
ingAssembly will be the 12th
consecutive one.


By BR UCE COLLIER
A suspect in. a grim fatal
accident that took place last
week in Milton is already on
probation in Walton County.
Milton Police Department
(MPD) Chief Greg Brandt
said that his department is
still investigating the June 15
death of William Christopher
Villar. The 22-year-old Milton
resident was in his home
when a car crashed through
the roof and killed him.
According to Brandt, the
car drove up an embankment,
became airborne, and
crashed into Villar's roof.
In West Florida Hospital,


listed in fair condition, is the
alleged driver of the vehicle.
She is Beverly Grimditch, 50,
of Navarre.
According to Florida De-
partment of Corrections
online records, Grimditch is
currently on active felony
probation for a 2005 offense.
According to the 2005 in-
cident report, Grimditch led
sheriff's deputies on a west-
ward chase on Interstate 10
last April, reaching speeds in
excess of 100 miles per hour.,

Grimditch was charged in
Walton County with misde-
meanor DUI, aggravated flee-


ing/eluding of a law enforce-
ment officer, and a violation
of the open container law.
Grimditch pled and re-
ceived probation last Septem-
ber.
State Attorney William
Eddins said that Judge
Kelvin Wells has issued a
warrant for violation of pro-
bation against Grimditch.
In the meantime, Brandt
emphasized that the Milton
incident is still under inves-
tigation, and that no charges
have been made.
"We've sent the alcohol
test to the lab, and we're con-
tinuing the investigation."

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.

Following discussion, the
council approved a motion for
Marse to send the requested
letter to RD and have the city
engineers proceed to ask for
bids on the project. If the bids
are judged to be too high, the

it can go ahead with the. new

Wayne Miller of the Walton
County School District ad-
dressed the council about pro-
viding new schools to meet
the forecast of future student
populations in the "Freeport
service area," which extends
north and south from Rock
Hill Road to Choctawhatchee
Bay and east and west from
county line to county line.
Miller said the school dis-
trict is working with esti-
mate:s that there will be
24,000 residential units in
the service area, but he did
not provide a time frame for
this growth to take place.
He said that, county wide,
requirTements for future
school construction projects
will approach $200 million, a
figure beyond the district's
borrowing limits. To help
cover construction costs, the
district will depend on
Florida's new "fair share" leg-
islation and require develop-
ers to pay into a fund to fi-
nance school construction.
In Walton County, the "fair
share" law goes into effect in
2008. At that time, the Dis-
trict will start forcing devel-'
opers to pay school impact
fees. If fees are not paid, the
projects will not be approved
or built.
From the audience, devel-
oper Albert Paris said that he
believed the district plan will
create a lot of problems and
bring development to a halt.

GOVERNOR JEB BUSH and Miss Walton County,
Rachael Jones.



My name is America!
I stretch from shore to shore.
From the waters of Golden Gate,
to Florida's sandy door.
You'll find me in old New Mexico,
where church bells still ring.
On the snowy crest of mountains,
my voice for freedom sings!
I'm the cities of Philadelphia,
and Washington D.C.
I'm the southern Rainbow Falls,
in glorious Tennessee! .
I'm New England's sparkling harbor,
where sail boats ride a wave,
I'm Kentucky's Bluegrass land,
with its Mammoth cave.
I'm America's Lone Star State,
where buffalo roam the, plains.
I'm the Alamo in San Antone,
my fort still remains.
I'm the soldiers that are marching,
the Navy and Marines.
Stars and Stripes fly over me
in patriotic scenes.
My name is America
in soleimn majesty I stand.
God is my commander
and holds me in His hand!

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.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 22, 2006


SPORTS


Women have made


their mark in


By CHUCK HINSON
Once considered to be just
spectators or cheerleaders,
the world of sports has been
turned upside down with the
recent surge in female ath-
letes. It is now common to
hear more about a female
athlete on ESPN, than to
hear news of a male athlete.
It could be the fascination
that we, as the public, have
with female athletes. They
have quickly become the cen-
ter of conversations and have
started many a debate
around the sports bars and
local hangouts.
With female athlete par-
ticipation jump-started into
high gear and pushed in the
public eye, tennis icon Billie
Jean King brought women'
athletics to a new standard.
She began many of the
women's tennis associations.
She got funding and finan-
cial backing for tourna-
ments and scholarships and
forced a nation that once
only held sports icons like
Babe Ruth and Dan Marino
as the only true "sports gods,"
to accept women athle.
Another impressive at-
tribute. of King's push for
women athletes was, it be-
gan to turn college and uni-
versities heads towards
scholarships for women. It is
now a fact that men and
women' sports scholarships
are nearly equal across the
board.
On the high school and
middle school level, sports
programs have been devel-
oped to coincide with one an-
other.-


For instance, here in Wal-
ton County, when football is
offered for still an all-male
squad, volleyball is put into
play for an all-female squad.
When there is baseball for
boys, there is softball for girls
and so on.
It is not an argument of
equal rights or the liberation
movement, it has just worked
out that way over the past
few years. Opportunities for
female athletes have in-
creased and the funding and
programs have followed suit.
Still on the backburner in
many ways, the WNBA is
trying to make it in compari-
son to the NBA men's basket-
ball league. Despite an avid
fan base and rising pay and
endorsement schedule for fe-
male basketball players, it
still has struggled with
viewership and mainstream
attention.

In the early to mid-40s,
women had their first taste
of being in the sports spot-
light. When World War II
was in full swing, all the men
were called to duty and the
women had to take up the
slack. That is when the Girls
Professional Baseball League
was born.
Many critics of that time
slammed promoters and
team owners for selling out
to the female body and the
fact that men just wanted to
see them slide into third
base with the hopes of steal-
ing a peek. Critics, especially
women, felt that these play-
ers were nothing more
than"eye-candy" and the men
Fr -.. .,,


sports
went to the games just for a
girly show instead of a sport-
ing event.
Throughout the few years
that the women were on the
field, attendance rose, the
games were sold-out and
women were finally begin-
ning to be taken seriously as
athletes. Unfortunately, the
end of the war also ended the'
women's league. Men came
back and took their place in
the dug-out following the
war, and the women's ath-
letic, movement bnce again
fell silent. It was not until
Billie Jean King stirred the
waters in the 60s and 70s
that female athletes began to
be taken seriously.
Recently the gentlemen's
establishment got a threat
when 16-year-old golfer
Michelle Wie looked like she
would be heading to the U.S.
Open and had the boys in
Augusta, GA., worried about
their own tee-times. But she
did not make it to the big
dance and had to settle for
briefly becoming a female
golfing star.
For more than a decade,
the women's athletic move-
ment has had a surge in me-
dia and has begun to surface
as an audience-attracter, en-
dorsement magnet and an
overall thrill to watch. In the
next few years, it might not
be a surprise to see a woman
on the men's golf course, to
see a female pitch on the At-
lanta Braves mound, or hear
her crunch helmets on the
field with Dallas Cowboys.
Only time, money and a
good sports agent will tell!


HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS
FOR GIRLS has opened
many doors for further educa-
tion for females and many
more scholarships for high
school athletes entering col-
lege. It is a trend that began
its upswing in the early 80s.

CO-ED SPORTS HAS REALLY taken off in the past few years on the courts and fields.
Female golfers are a common sight on the golf course and, with professional golfers like
Nicole Castgrale and 16-year-old Michelle Wie, they are now knocking on the doors of the
all-male tournaments.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 22, 2006


Panhandle lays claim to 35 baseball titles


By PATRICK CASEY

The history of baseball in
the Northwest Florida region
of the state is brighter than
its sister sport, softball.
Teams from the Pensacola
to Monticello region have
captured 35 state champion-
ships according to the ar-
chives the Florida High
School Athletic Association.
Baseball has crowned a
state champion every year
since 1922 with Monticello
claiming our region's first
title in the sport with a 4-1
win over Mulberry in 1933.
Of the 246 state champion-
ships handed out in the his-
tory of baseball at the
high school level, 35 titles
have been claimed by schools
between Pensacola and
Monticello, or about 14 per-
cent of the championships.
Tallahassee Leon claimed
three titles from our region
with championships in 1940,
1944, and 1951. In 1949, two
schools were awarded state
championships as the state
was split into two classes. In
1964, the state was split into
three separate classes of com-
petition. In 1971, the FHSAA
went to four classifications of
baseball play. In 1994, the
state went to five classifica-
tions, and, in 1996, to six clas-
sifications of
schools that play for a base-
ball title.
Pensacola Tate became the


region's most successful pro-
gram in 2005 as the Aggies
captured their seventh base-
ball championship by win-
ning the Class 4A crown. Tate
won championships in 1962,
1968, 1976, 1984, 1986,
and 1998. On average,
Pensacola Tate brings home
a baseball state title about
every six years, since 1962.
Pensacola Escambia can
lay claim to five baseball
state championships while
Tallahassee Leon has won
four titles in their program's
history.
Pace High School was the
only school to win a baseball
state championship in 2006
from our region as the
Patriots pulled off an incred-
ible two-out rally in their fi-
nal at-bat in the Class 5A
state semifinal against Win-
ter Haven to capture an 8-7
win. Pace then beat
Hillsborough 11-7 in the
state championship game to
earn their third baseball
title.
Pace, Tate, Escambia, Leon,
and Florida High are the only
five schools from the
Pensacola to Monticello re-
gion of the state to lay claim
to more than two baseball
championships.
Walton, Okaloosa, and
Holmes counties have never
had a school capture a base-
ball title. Walton and
Okaloosa county schools
have never had a team play


for a baseball championship
at the high school level while
Holmes County has had just
one. The Holmes County
Bluedevils lost the 1966
championship game to Avon
Park 7-0.
Milton and Pensacola High
have seen the most frustra-
tion in high school baseball
championship games from
our region as both schools are
0-3 in the title bout.
Reaching the playoffs has
been difficult for area schools.
Walton has appeared in the
baseball playoffs ten times,
but has a 2-10 record. Walton
hasn't won a baseball play-
off game since 1965. Paxton
is the only other school with
a win in the play offs. The
Bobcats are 2-3 in three ap-
pearances. Freeport and
South Walton have never
won a baseball playoff game
and nearby rival Ponce de
Leon is 0-5 in five appear-
ances.
A limited number of ath-
letes that play several differ-
ent sports has complicated
the mix in summer workouts.
Walton has several athletes
that play football, basketball
and baseball as does Freeport
and South Walton. Paxton
eand Ponce de Leon have bas-
ketball and baseball as their
main two sports and finding
time to have summer pro-
grams in both without hav-
ing a conflict in scheduling is
very difficult. Some coaches


prefer athletes choosing
one sport and specializing in
it, a practice that is difficult
to uphold in small schools
where every athlete is
needed to fill out a roster and
compete.
Baseball has often been the
third sport (behind football
and basketball in northwest
Florida) and suffered locally
due to a coaching carousel
that rarely sees a high school
baseball coach last more than
a couple of seasons.
Private schools have done
extremely well in baseball in
central and southern Florida
as the weather tends to be
better in those areas in Feb-
ruary when practice starts
for the regular season. Most
private schools also have less
athletes playing basketball
that will join the baseball
team than most small public
schools whose athletes are
finishing basketball season
before picking up a baseball.
Baseball also suffers from
the inevitable end of the
school year at the high school
level. Proms, senior trips,
graduation ceremonies and
club outings make it hard for


athletes to concentrate on
.playing the sport while plan-
ning those events on a busy
social calendar, not to men-
tion school work that must be
completed and final
exams that must be taken to
graduate.
Locally, competition is
baseball has been solid, but
not spectacular. Football and
basketball continue to re-
ceive more emphasis at most
schools in the area, but
progress is being made.
Hopefully 2007 will see the
sport continue to grow in
popularity and success in the
region.

Kahne wins 400


By CHUCK HINSON
Depsite having to start 37
cars behind, a rainy forecast
and some other impressive
odds, Kasey Kahne was able
to pull out of the pack, over-
come engine problems and
pull off the win. He won the
rain-shortened NASCAR 3M
Performance 400 in Brook-
lyn, MI this past Sunday.
At 26 years old, Kahne
knew the stakes wer high
and the competition would be
stiff, but that didn't stop him.
After a disappointing fall
to 38th place in the 43 car-
field, due to debris on his ra-
diator, he knew he had to


restart, but a caution for
light rain was flown and it al-
lowed him to regain the lead
lap. It did not take him long
to be back in the driver's seat
and headed for the lead posi-
tion.
Kahne's No. 9 Evernham
Motorsports Dodge hit the
track hard after leaving the
pit. It did so just before the
race was called with 71 laps
left on the 2-mile oval, due to
rain.
The victory was his fourth
victory of the season and his
third from the top qualifying
spot. What many felt was
even more impressive than


the fourth win, was his abil-
ity to regain the lead in the
NASCAR 3M Performance
400 and win the title with so
many laps .cut from the race.
Carl Edwards, who had
maintianed the lead spot for
several laps, finished in sec-
ond place and his best finish
of the season. Dale
Earnhardt Jr., last year's
winner, Greg Biffle, rookie
Reed Sorenson and series
point leader Jimmie Johnson
followed in placement.
Bill Lester, the first black
driver to race in the Cup Se-
ries in more than 20 years,
finished in 32nd place.

bachelor

Just 20 months after
Okaloosa-Walton College
started its first bachelor's
degree programs, the college
celebrated the first baccalau-
reate students to complete
degrees at OWC's commence-
ment ceremony held at the
Niceville Campus. This aca-
demic year, 27 students com-
pleted the bachelor of applied
science degree in project and
. acquisitions management
and another 15 completed
the bachelor of science in
nursing degree, a joint pro-
gram with the University of
West Florida. These students
were among the 1,544 who
completed degree or certifi-
cate programs at OWC in
S2005-06.
The bachelor of applied sci-
ence in project and acquisi-
tions management degree of-
fers specialization tracks in
acquisitions, project manage-
ment, quality improvement,
training and development/
Human resources and a cus-
Stom option so that students
may tailor a degree to meet
individual career goals orjob
requirements.

Since OWC began the man-
agement program, more than
300 students have been ac-
cepted into the bachelor of
applied science degree pro-
gram. The bachelor of science
2; in nursing is a cooperative
program with the University
of West Florida and housed
: at the OWC Niceville cam-
pus. OWC is accredited to of-
fer upper division nursing

awarded by UWF.
For OWC to become a four-
year degree granting institu-
tion, approval was required
from the Florida Board of
Education, OWC had to
achieve a change in its ac-
creditation status, and the
college was required to
change its name. OWC's first

Walton 4-H youth shine at area events


By ROBIN NEWTON
Members of 4-H clubs
throughout Walton County
showcased their talents first
at county events and then
again at district events.
The county events were held
at the Walton County Exten-

Springs. Children were given
the opportunity to demon-
strate their talents in a vari-
ety of ways.
Members are divided into
two age groups determined
by their age as of Sept. 1 of


the current 4-H year. Juniors
are ages 8 12 and seniors are
ages 13 -18.

This year, the youth partici-
pated in demonstrations, il-
lustrated talks, speeches,
fashion revue, and the 'Share
the Fun' talent contest. Rib-
bons were awarded and
judges gave valuable com-
ments. Qualifiers went on to
the district level event. Se-
niors winning at district
qualify to represent their
county at the state events


that are held during 4-H Con-
gress at the University of
Florida in Gainesville in July.
Judges for county events
were: Debora Campbell, Wal-
ton County Health Depart-
ment, Judy Corbus, Holmes
and Washington County Ex-
tension, and Walton County
Master Gardeners Suzanne
West and Carolyn Jones.

blue awards were eligible to
go on to compete at district
events, held in Holmes
County this year.


Art gallery docents

needed for OWC Arts Center


The Arts Center at
Okaloosa-Walton College's
Niceville campus is seeking
volunteer docents to assist at
the center's two art galleries.
Docents help enhance the
viewing experience of art gal-
lery visitors by offering infor-
mation and insight into the
current exhibitions and per-
manent collections. Docents
do not need to be art experts.
Docents receive training
from the gallery director in-
cluding workshops on the
college's permanent art col-


election, special exhibitions
and art techniques. Docents
may participate in organized
trips to local and statewide
museums, galleries and art-
ists' studios and have access
to an exceptional library of
resource materials and
books. In addition, docents
who volunteer to work the
night of an Arts Center per-
formance may receive com-
plimentary admission to the
show on a space available
basis.
Docents select the times


they would like to work dur-
ing the galleries' regular
hours, Monday through
Thursday from 9 a.m, to 4
p.m. and Sundays from 1 to
4 p.m. The galleries are
closed most holidays. The Art
Center Galleries are also
open 90 minutes prior to per-
formances at The Arts Cen-
ter.
For more information on
the volunteer docent pro-
gram, contact Cheryl Mor-
rison at 729-6044 or
morrisoc@owc.edu.

Calling all artists


In an effort to support and
showcase Walton County's
thriving arts community, the
South Walton Tourist Devel-
opment Council (TDC) Arts
and Culture, Committee ex-
tends a "call to artists" for the
2007 Artist of the Year.
"Being the first Artist of the
Year gave me a lot of name
recognition that I otherwise
wouldn't have had," said Dor-
othy Starbuck, 2003 Artist of
the Year. "It was an honor
and great for my resume. A
lot of people saw the article
on the TDC's website, and
the Art in Public Places pro-
gram through the TDC was
a wonderful benefit."
The selected,"Artist of the
Year" will receive guaranteed
commissioned artwork and
be featured throughout the
year in TDC promotions. The
commissioned piece is used
in the TDC's Art in Public
Places program and will be
on display in a public space
within Walton County. TDC
promotions vary from artist
to artist.
A panel of judges will re-
view all submitted artwork
and grade each artist in ac-
cordance with the estab-
lished media. Media catego-
ries include tile, oil, water-
color, mixed media, photogra-
phy, acrylic, fiber and sculp-
ture including clay, wood,
glass or metal. The artwork
will be judged on south Wal-
ton nature and heritage, high
quality of life, arts and cul-
ture, managed growth, qual-
ity dining and shopping. The
chosen artist will be an-
nounced at the TDC's annual
luncheon in October.
In order to be considered,
the artist must be a resident
of Walton County for at least
one year and the artist's work


must support the 'Beaches of mission requirements, call
South Walton' brand prom- (850) 267-1216 or via email
ise. The deadline for applica- a t
tion is July 14, 2006. For sub- waltoncam.

Restoration of



CR-30A beaches



could start in 2008


By Dotty Nist
With an offshore sand
source now identified, the
restoration of Walton
County's central and eastern
beaches could start by 2008
or 2009, according to Brad
Pickel, beach management
coordinator for the South
Walton Tourist Development
Council (TDC).
Pickel said consultants
looked for suitable sand all
through 2005 and 2006. Just
last month, large sand depos-
its, the remains of ancient
beaches, were discovered off-
shore from the Sandestin/
Topsail Preserve and Camp
Creek areas, but much work
remains to be done if the es-
timated $65 million project is
to begin within the next
couple of years. TDC consult-
ants are continuing to collect
sand samples. Pickel said 70-
100 more "cores". will be
taken from proposed sand
source areas. A joint state/
federal coastal permit will be
required. Pickel expects the
application procedure to take
over a year, possibly two
years.
Another challenge will be
the fact that some of the
county's most eroded
beachfront areas are short
sections lying next to state
park property and other
property that is not desig-
nated as critically eroded.
Only property so designated
is eligible for matching.state
restoration funding. Pickel


said that restoring a short
1000-foot section of beach
"does not work."
The Walton County Beach
Nourishment Committee is
therefore recommending re-
storing continuous sections
wherever possible, even if
that means restoring across
state park land or other prop-
erty not eligible for state
matching funding.
It will be necessary to seek
state approval for restoration
on the park properties.
The TDC is generating $2
million per year for beach
restoration through a portion
of the bed tax collected on
short-term rentals in south
Walton County, but restora-
tion is expected to cost $4
million per mile.
Pickel said the TDC is
looking at doing a bond to fi-
nance the project, using the
$2 million per year as a rev-
enue stream, with the state
expected to pick up part of
the project cost. What may be
most helpful costwise is that
once the beach restoration is
completed, the local expense
to renourish the beach after
storm damage will be only
12.5 percent.
The TDC has scheduled a
workshop to present infor-
mation and seek public input
on-the proposed restoration
along CR-30A. The meeting
will take place from 6 to 8
p.m. on Thursday, July 13 in
the Azalea Room at the
Baytowne Conference Cen-


ter, Sandestin Golf and
Beach Resort.
Meanwhile, the western
Walton County beach resto-
ration project, which was
suspended by state officials
last month due to the loss a
fourth federally-protected
sea turtle, remains on hold
until October at the earliest.
Seventy percent of the al-
most five-mile Walton
County project area had been
completed, and about 50 per-
cent of the total project,
which included about two
miles of Destin beach.
Pickel said the project con-
tractor has demobilized from
the area, but does want to
finish the project once Wal-
ton County and Destin are
able to begin restoration
again. It may be possible to
continue with the existing
contract, but costs may be
different due to the delay.
Walton County and Destin
representatives are discuss-
ing these matters with the
state and with the contrac-
tor.
Pickel said the city and
county may want to consider
delaying the restart of the
project past Oct. 1, since the
gulf waters will still be very
warm at that point, resulting
in the presence of more sea
turtles offshore. There would
likely be less chance of "tak-
ing" additional turtles while
dredging if restoration were
to begin in November or De-
cember.


Gar%:


WILL THIS BE the look of things to come north of the bay in Walton County? No height
limits currently exist, but limits on building density will likely rule out high rises for the
foreseeable future.



Commissioners delay



height-limit decision


By Dotty Nist
An ordinance that would have set a
height limit for new construction in all of
Walton County has. been tabled for further
study after "a lot of public comment," to quote
Pat Blackshear, county growth management,
director.
Since 2001, all new construction south of
the bay has been limited to 50 feet or less.
No such limitation exists in the remainder
of the county to the north.
In recent months, several county
commissioners have expressed an interest in
applying the same height restriction to the
county as a whole.


The Walton County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) first looked at the
current ordinance proposing to set such a
limit, at the June 13 BCC meeting. On June
8, the Walton County Planning Commission
had voted six to one to recommend against
the adoption of the ordinance.
The proposed ordinance provided
exceptions for "agriculture and industrial
land uses."
Several Choctaw Beach residents have
been the most vocal opponents of extending
height limitations north of the bay.

First step of affordable housing plan approved


By Leah Stratmann
County sponsored large-
.scale map amendments for
affordable housing were the
agenda items du jour at the
special meeting of the Walton
County Planning
Commission Monday
evening. Two, affordable
housing projects surpassed
the first hurdle by gaining
approval to change the land
designation, while a third
application was so poorly
completed, it was the
decision by the county to
withdraw it until the'next
cycle, which could be as long
as two years in the future.
The special meeting had
to be called because of the
large number of items on the
June 6 agenda.
The first order of
business was a request made
via email from a citizen
requesting that the
commissioners hold citizens'
comments to three minutes
each and to further request
that several speakers not
keep reiterating the same
point over and over, which
would serve to reduce the
overall length of meetings.
Commissioner Tom
Patton jumped right on this
request, making the motion,
which was quickly seconded
by Tom Terrell and passed by
all.
Danielle Mayoris
addressed the commissioners
on behalf of St. Joe
Timberland Company,


requesting an amendment to
change 39.5 acres in Walton
County south of the
Choctawhatchee Bay from a
designation of large scale
agricultural to coastal center.
Coastal center designations
allow for 12 homes per acre
and the developer plans to
build 212 affordable housing
units. Mayoris emphasized
that the land sits next to a
commerce park and a water
treatment plant and all the
necessary infrastructure is in
place. "
In response to a question
by Commissioner Patton,
county Planning Director Pat
Blackshear .provided the
definition of affordable
housing is rents or
mortgages that do not exceed
30 percent of adjusted gross
income. "The median income
for Walton County is $44,000
per year," she said.
The county sponsored
this amendment in part
because the parcel to be
developed is south of the Bay,
where housing needs are
critical.
Tom Patton made a
motion to approve the
amendment, which was
seconded by Sally rrifeld
and approved by a1 .
The next large scale map
amendment under
consideration involved a
request to change 60 acres
south of Choctawhatchee
Bay from neighborhood
planning/infill and


conservation residential to a
designation of village mixed
use. The developer,
Kuykendall Partners, LLC
and IMARC Partners, Inc.
plan an affordable housing
project of 687 units on the
property, which is located
east of the intersection of
Chat Holley Road and U.S.
331 between Nellie Drive
and Old Indian Woman
Drive.
Representing the
builders, Terry Anderson of
Anderson Engineering said
'the project was developed
from discussions last year on
the best use of the site. He
emphasized that the school
district is aware of the
project. A mandatory school
impact fee of $25,000 per
projected student goes into
effect in August of 2008.
Commissioner Patton
expressed some concern over
the designation of village
mixed use, which would
allow for commercial venues
as well as housing and said,
"What type of approval do we
give? We have FEMA issues,
school issues, and the
affordable housing issue.
This is only a map
amendment here tonight.
There is a lot for the county
to do before this is a project."
'One citizen who has a
place of business on Chat
Holley Road was concerned
about the increased traffic
and asked if there were plans
to upgrade the road. It was


explained that the impact
fees are in essence, 'pay as
you go' fees, which are used
to improve roads and so
forth.
David Kramer spoke in
support of the project and
said, "Some commercial
development in a village is
not a bad thing. It can reduce
the milk, bread and egg trips,
but will all affordable
housing projects be treated
the same?" he asked.
,The commissioners
voted unanimously to
approve the change in
designation.
A proposal by Emerald
Coast Partners to build 211
units of work force housing
in Mossyhead was ultimately
scrapped by the county
because the application was
incomplete and left many
unanswered questions. Many
of the questions came from
Robert Billingsly after the
developer's agent said the
project was being built in
part to provide for the 2,240
members of the armed
services coming to the area.
It was pointed out that Eglin
Air Force Base wants service

"This amendment does
not meet affordable housing
as defined by state
guidelines. Thirty percent of
income will not pay for these
homes. It's a real challenge


to put in septic tanks in a
project this large located
near wetlands.
"I don't think he {the
developer) can get as close to
those wetlands as he thinks.
In summary, it is not
affordable, it impacts the
school systems, there is no
analysis on storm water, or
fire services. It is incomplete.
It should be returned to staff
and the applicant to be
worked out," concluded
Billingsly, a citizen expert in
planning and a Walton
County landowner.
"Residents will be paying
the highest insurance rates
possible because this will be

development itself we are
opposed to, it is the density
of the development," he said.
David Seffens lives in
the middle of the proposed
tract of land to be developed.
He protested the change in
designation from large-scale
agriculture to rural village.
"This is the most pristine
property I've ever seen. I
moved out of Bluewater Bay
to be in the country. There
are two to three thousand
gallons of water running
through the c.eek every day.
Even now, when it's been dry,
that creek is running. With a
few phone calls and a couple
of letters, I could probably
stop this whole thing on
environmental grounds," he
said. "The land has gopher


turtles living on it, which are
now protected by the state
because they are a keystone
species and endangered. I
have a well on my land and
septic tanks would
contaminate my well and I
want to keep my well because
it is some of the best water

emphasize the clarity of the
creek water, Seffens brought
a bottle of water he had
taken from the creek.
The developer's
representative noted that it
was the intention of the

Workshop on CR-30A beach restoration


The South Walton Tour-
ist Development Council
(TDC) has scheduled a sec-
ond public information work-
shop regarding beach resto-
ration projects for the
beaches along the CR-30A
corridor. The public meeting
will be held Thursday, July
13, 2006, from 6-8 p.m., in the
Azalea Room at the
Baytowne Conference Center
in Sandestin Golf and Beach
Resort.
In April 2006, DEP re-
leased their state-designated
"critically eroded" areas,
which includes all of Western


Walton County that is cur-
rently undergoing restora-
tion and an increase from two
miles to nine miles along the
30-A corridor.
The workshop will high-
light the scientific findings
regarding the current state of
the beaches, sand source in-
formation and proposed
project areas for future res-
toration efforts.
The information can serve
as the blueprint for ways that
Walton County can restore,
protect and enhance all
beaches managed by Walton
County, while focusing on


the newly-designated "criti-
cally eroded" areas.
The workshop will also in-
clude a moderated question
and answer session, which
will provide local residents
the opportunity to voice their
questions and concerns re-
garding future beach restora-
tion initiatives in Walton
County.

ration projects contact the

South Walton
Community
Council beach
cleanup
The fun and fireworks of
July 4 often leave in their
wake a beach littered with
debris. The public is urged to
join the communities in an
effort to remove fireworks
and other debris left behind
on local beaches.
The South Walton Commu-
nity Council is sponsoring its
annual beach cleanup on the
morning of July 5. In addi-
tion to the poor appearance
presented by littered
beaches, the debris is also a
safety hazard to ne-.ting
turtles and other marine life.
Those interested are asked
to join in the beach cleanup
at 8 a.m. on July 5 at one of
the following beach accesses:
Miramar Beach, Dune Allen
Beach, Ed Walline, Blue
Mountain Beach, Grayton
Beach, Santa Clara in
Seagrove Beach, and Eastern
Lake.
Also the following ac-
cesses: SeaCrest (Mistral, lo-
cated just west of Mistral de-
velopment), Rosemary Beach
(Western green dune walk-
over, located due south of the
Town Center) and Sand Cliffs
(located in front of Sand
Cliffs Condominium).
Volunteers from SWCC
will be at each of these ac-
cesses to provide trash bags,
gloves and water.
The SWCC is an organiza-
tion of residents, business
owners and property owners
whose mission is to preserve,
protect and enhance the
quality of life and natural en-
vironment of South Walton
County.

Full agenda forces additional Planning Commission meeting


By Leah Stratmann

An overflowing agenda
with more than average citi-
zen input, forced the plan-
ning commissioners to order
a quit time of 10:30 p.m. at
the meeting held June 9 and
ordered a second meeting be
held at 5 p.m. on June 19 to
address the remaining
agenda items.

One of the items, a pro-
posal to amend the Walton
County Land Development
Code, would have established
a height limitation of 50-feet
for all of Walton County, with
the exception of agriculture
and industrial land use.
A homeowner in Choctaw
Beach commented that wid-


ening County Highway 20,
whichis in the planning
stages, would take her entire
front yard and put the high-
way within 10 feet of her
front door. She said if height
restrictions are imposed,
property owners cannot build
up and will effectively de-
value the property of every-
one in the neighborhood.

"A height of 50-feet is ar-
bitrary," commented citizen
Wayland David. "It is not
needed nor warranted at this
time. A height restriction is
like passing a law that taller
people can no longer exist. We
should allow no individuals to
restrict our property rights.
What is the rush to imple-
ment this ordinance?" he


asked.
Commissioner Randy
Gardner said he did not feel
that limitations should be
made on the entire county.
"I'm not certain what sense it
makes to do it now. I am on
record as adamantly oppos-
ing these restrictions in Wal-
ton County. I don't see a 10-
story project in Mossy Head
being planned and thereby
putting a 50-foot restriction
on my property."
Commissioner Butch
Lawrence concurred, com-
menting, "I am totally
against any form of height
restriction."
When public comment
closed and the measure put
to a vote, all voted not to pass
the ordinance with the excep-


tion of Sally Merrifeld.
The commissioners ap-
proved the Bay Breeze Cot-
tages, a major development
consisting of 36 single-family
homes on 5.04 acres of land
with a future land use desig-
nation of Neighborhood Plan-
ning Area/Infill. The site is
located along the south side
of Crest Drive, approximately
one-half mile west of the in-
tersection of Ponce de Leon
Drive and Crest Drive. This
project was unanimously ap-
proved.

Another project is Egret's
Watch, a major development
of an eight single-family
home subdivision on 7.36
acres located on Jack


Saltzman Road. County plan-
ners said the project meets
code requirements but access
is needed to the property.
Dean Burgis, a professional
engineer with Emerald Coast
Associates, said a private
agreement was being worked
out to provide access to the
property and the project will
adhere to 40-foot deed restric-
tions. The project was unani-
mously approved.
Tranquil Forest, a major
development located along
the northeast of Cypress
Pond Road, calls for 35 homes
and a 500 square foot pool to
be built on 20.42 acres of
land. Homeowners buying
property in this subdivision
will be ordered to protect ad-
jacent wetland in perpetuity.

The survey revealed that Blackshear. "Where we most


need the housing is where the
roads are most congested,
which is why we are looking
at all the alternatives," she
said. "I propose we ask the
Northwest Florida delegation
of legislators to recognize the
need for affordable housing
and realize that traffic
concurrency is a roadblock to
the creation of that housing.
The delegation must assist us
with this for it to be
achieved."
Blackshear noted that
Palm Beach County is al-
ready implementing a plan
relaxing the concurrency re-
strictions. "Palm Beach got
an amendment approved
years ago in their comprehen-
sive plan. We should treat the
whole state equally," she em-
phasized. "If we have 20 per-
cent of the work force that
could live south of the bay,
those people are not on U.S.
331 in the peak morning and
afternoon periods. What is
happening in our area is
people are forced to pay more
than 50 percent of their in-
come to buy or rent a house
,or. apartment. Because land
and construction cost is so
high, six or eight units on an
acre is just not possible," she


said.
"With proportional fair
share, if some builder has to
pay the fair share fees, it
could place a project out of the
affordable range of housing
altogether. We are trying to
get exemptions for bona fide
work force housing projects.
It's truly a Catch-22 situation
and we are looking for a
mechanism to assist in bal-
ancing the problem," she con-
cluded.
. The lack of housing for
working people-professional
level and others- does more
than handicap the home
seeker, it handicaps employ-
ers as well. Blackshear said
employer after employer re-
lates the difficulty in recruit-
ing when potential employees
cannot find a place to live.
She related the story of a
planner in Georgia who has
been made an offer by Wal-
ton County but may have to
turn the job down because her
budget for housing is $1,000
a month and she can find
nothing in that range'any-
where close to her work ste.
",If hadnt bought my haose

couldn't afford it today,"
Blackshear noted.

At The MOVIES

Crestview Cinema 3 Rave Motion Pictures
Nnrthview Plaza. Crastview 4100 Legendarv Dr Destin


It's summertime
and that means ap-
plying sunscreen,
fighting off pesty
yellowflies and pre-
paring for another
season of drab,
vaguely disturbing
television.

With the first official day of
summer here, school is out,
the beaches are crowded, the
air-conditioning needs servic-
ing, neighborhood kids have
invaded your home and noth-
ing on television is worth
watching, especially the
summer line-up.
I watched an old episode of
of my favorite cartoon, The
Simpsons this past weekend
. The episode talked about
the new releases and main
character, Homer Simpson,
barked at the tv set, saying,
"how about a story of my life?
I can be more interesting
than that jerk!"
That got me thinking and
got me writing. What does
television and the networks
really hope to do with such
programs as they have de-
cided to share with the pub-
lic? Are they trying to make
us mad? Do they want us to
stop paying the cable or sat-
ellite bill?
On Monday night, it's back.
Another session with the chef
from across the pond.
That's right, it's Hell's
Kitchen with its well-spoken,
trash-mouthed star chef Gor-
don Ramsey who thinks cook-
ing is surgery and presenta-
tion brings about world
peace. He has nothing posi-
tive to 'say, curses the 12
wanabe chefs, throws their
food in the garbage abd then
makes each one dig through
the dumpster the following
morning at 5 a.m. to see how
much food they wasted from
the night before.
All the drama is to be a les-
son on wasting food. What it
really is a waste of viewers'
time.
Don't get me wrong, I have
worked in restaurants dur-
ing and after college and
there is tons of pressure
cmoing from the floor man-


ager, the general manager,
the waiters, the head cook,
etc. But unlike the sensitive
characters on Hell's Kitchen,
most of the chefs I dealt with
did not cower down to a man-
ager and most simply self-
medicated after a ling shift,
rather than having a coffee
by the dumpster at four in
the morning, discussing
their hurt feelings from their
earlier shift.
I know. Bad drama makes
for good watching!
Enough about cooking.
How about those talented
kids and the next big per-
former? No, not Amerinca
Idol, but another dream
child of the show's creator.
So You Think You Have
Talent, another FOX master-
piece, showcased last month
to not-so-surprising reviews.
Critics tore it apart and said
one show about crying
wanabes and over-zealous
shower singers, is enough.
The summer months are
continuing with some of the
standards, such as Extreme
Makeover: Home Edition. It
has racked up several
awards, brought tears to the
eye with inspiring stories and
caused thousands to give
money and their time to
home building organizations
like the Habitat for Human-
ity.,
Once again, Ty Pennington
and his band of merry build-
ers, transform a lucky
family's life. For once, real-
ity television looks promis-
ing.
With all the new shows
hitting the airwaves this
summer, and the fall line-up
just three months away, be
careful what you allow your
family to watch and what
they consider family enter-
tainment. Even cartoons and
"kiddy" programming can
still be too offensive to chil-
dren and even adults.
If all else fails and there is
nothing on the boob tube,
make home movies of your-
self, your kids or your fam-
ily, send it in to one of the net-
works, and who knows? You
could have the next reality-
based television show on the
WB.
It could be The Truman
Show all over again.

view," he explained.
"There is no need,"
commented local resident and
realtor David Kramer,
suggesting that the ordinance
would result in sprawl.
I "Allow the sun to shine
before twelve o'clock,"
countered Seagrove resident
Bob Dobes, who said he also
owns property north of the
bay. Dobes said that with
lower construction heights,
"you can make a good profit,
but when does it just come to
greed?"
He urged that if heights
higher than 50 feet are
allowed, that those
developments be moved at
least a mile from the bay that
building heights be staggered
in order to preserve the bay
view for the public.
South Walton county
resident Alan Ficarra
suggested that opponents of
the 'height ordinance might
benefit if they worked
together to create a
neighborhood plan to foster a
community "with their
vision." Other local
communities such as Inlet
Beach have developed code-.


HOUSING

guidelines say affordable
housing is $210,000, then so
be it, but it won't help people
to own their own homes."
After the issue was closed
to public comment,
Blackshear recommended'the
land use amendment be
scrapped for now due the
large number of unanswered
questions and the incomplete
application. Commissioner
Terrell made a motion to
adopt Blackshe'ar's
recommendation, which was
seconded and passed by all.
Blackshear noted the
project will be postponed
until after the evaluation and
appraisal reports and it may
not be looked at again until
the next cycle, which could be
up to two years in the future.
She did not her office would
be working with the applicant
in the meantime.
The only other agenda
item eliciting a lot of citizen
input was a request to change
120 acres of land located 2.8
miles east of Rock Hill Road
and U.S. 331 from estate


residential to general
#317F agriculture to expand a
TLE borrow pit operation. It was
noted that Timothy Tindel
Unit #7 already operated a 40 acre
borrow pit in the general
ck Storage, area.
DeFuniak area.
d as whole Clayton Green who lives
3, 2006. on High Lonesome Road, the
current road used by the
#318F borrow pit operation, said 25
families live and dwell on
High Lonesome Road. "My
concern is the damage the
existing dirt pit has already
made. The dirt pit that exists
IBE there today is completely
washed out and' goes down
y into the branch of Bruce
Creek, which a half-mile from
the dirt pit. Everything in the
creek branch is dead and it
A. smells bad. My concern is the
AlR damage that is caused by
digging and hauling," he said.
Brent Miller is also
I. concerned about increasing
the size of the pit. "We are
"AR very concerned with an
additional 120 acres being
blown around and
uncontained. We want them
to contain what they have
within their own boundaries,"
ARD he said.


Several people spoke about
the high speeds of dump
trucks on the roads and the
dust and danger it brings to
area residents, many of who
suffer from asthma. Several
mentioned they bought the

sanctioned neighborhood
plans setting standards for
height and other aspects of
development.
.Blackshear observed that
some areas of the county are
affected by the mission of
Eglin Air Force Base. Her
recommendation was that the
commissioners direct staff to
work with Eglin officials and
come back with delineations
of various areas of the county
and appropriate construction
height standards for each. "It
is very uncommon not to have
a height restriction,"
Blackshear observed.
While the matter is being
studied, if someone proposes
to develop a 200-foot-tall
condominium north of the
bay, for example, she added,
"there is nothing in the code
that will stop it."
However, Blackshear
continued, the county's
maximum building density
ranges from 10 to 12 units per
acre. Those densities would
make high rises unlikely, she
noted.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows agreed,
commenting that if a
developer is only able to build
10 units on an acre, she would
not expect that he would opt
to build a 10-story building
with each of the units on top
of the other.
District 4 Commissioner
Ro Cuchens agreed with
Blackshear's suggestion for
additional work on the
ordinance in conjunction with
Eglin. He moved for approval
of that course of action.

The motion was approved
4-0, with Brannon, Cuchens,
Meadows, and Pridgen voting
in favor and Jones not
present for the vote.

property as estate residential
because they wanted to be
free ,.of commercial
operations.
Citizen Fred Cannon
noted, "The county maintains
High Lonesome Road and lots
of trucks running up and
down the road will create
more county maintenance. I
moved in because it was
residential. I didn't expect a
big business with trucks
running up and down the
street, contributing to health
problems." Linda Cannon
said, "Children have a hard
time now with the trucks
going by just trying to catch
the school bus. Fifty dump
trucks going in and out on
that small road will endanger
lives. It will cost the families
because the families will not
be able to enjoy the
community they already
have. It will destroy the
environment," she said.
Eric Compton who lives at'
the corner of Rock Hill and
High Lonesome Roads made
the following comment:
"There are two pits on that
road already. I've seen the
effects of the dump trucks
passing us on Rock Hill going
55 miles an hour. When a
truck comes up and stops it
blows the dust right toward
my house when they hit the
pavement. I'm a disabled
veteran and I'm limited to
what I can do. I can't afford
the extra cost to maintain my
house."
Owner's representative
Kent Hackett said the'
-commissioners should ignore
the comments by the people
because the issue was simply
about changing the
designation of the land.
Commissioner Albert Paris
said concerns about the creek
had to be addressed and that
further it was the purpose of
the commission to listen to
citizen concerns.
There is another road in
the area that is privately
owned. The commissioners
approved the land change
designation provided an
agreement can be worked out
to provide to provide legal
ingress and egress that is not
High Lonesome Road. The
citizens said they had no
opposition to the project if the
traffic was not through High
Lonesome Road.

After a lengthy agenda, the
meeting adjourned.

sented to Sacred Heart Hos-
pital on the Emerald

Fabulous Fall Fashion Show,
the Fall Treasure Sale, and
the Spring Home Tour at Re-
gatta Bay.
The club's Family
Fund donated $3,000 to area
