Brannon: campaign finance


controversy "wrapped


around the axle"


By BRUCE COLLIER
Walton County Commis-
sioner Scott Brannon wants
to set the record straight on
what he considers to be an
unfairly and unduly compli-


cated set of issues regarding
his campaign finances.
The Florida Elections
Commission (FEC) has in-
vestigated a complaint that
Brannon violated Florida law

". '
. .- .


COMMISSIONER SCOTT BRANNON discussing what
he feels has been unfair and biased news reporting over
campaign cicounting techniques from two years ago. A
complaint was filed by Brannon's opponent's campaign
manager. Brannon insists he's done nothing wrong.


in certifying as correct a cam-
paign treasurer's report that
was allegedly "incorrect,
false, or incomplete."
The inquiry focuses on
Brannon's 2004 campaign for
the Board of County Com-
missioners (BCC).
The complaint was
brought by Guy Davidson,
campaign manager for
Brannon's opponent, former
commissioner Lane Rees.
Brannon defeated Rees in a
sharply contested race.
Specifically, Brannon is al-.
leged to have purchased tele-
vision advertising time
through the Petermann Cor-
poration, and failed to report
that expenditure on his 2004
campaign treasurer's report
(CTR).
Brannon says that he did
not report the expenditure on
the CTR in question because
at the time he filed the CTR,
he had not yet received the
invoice for the expenditure.
Brannon had an agree-
ment with Petermann under
which Petermann would pur-
chase media time, and that
Brannon would not write any
checks directly to television
stations WMBB-TV and
WJHG-TV.
Brannon received a single
all-inclusive invoice from


Network Productions, a divi-
sion of Petermann Corpora-
tion.
This, said Brannon, was
Petermann's standard prac-
tice. Brannon never received
individual, itemized invoices
from the stations themselves.
"The commercials aired
before the billing cycle of the
TV station to Petermann
started."
At the time the commer-
cials began airing, Brannon
had not yet received an in-
voice, but had an expenditure
report due to be filed.
Brannon believes that the
airing of the TV spots prior
to a report of expenditures
led some to believe that "I
was being granted some kind
of credit, I was being... some-
body was fronting this
money."
Brannon said that he paid
and reported the expenditure
when he received the invoice
from Network Productions.
"The issue is the difference
between cash and accrual ac-
counting."
Brannon adds that he
could not have reported an
expenditure without an ac-
tual receipt.
"All money was accounted

At the Freeport City Coun-
cil meeting of June 22, the
Council discussed issues
arising from the Old Town
Plaza development of
Yarbrough and Copelan.
It was reported that the de-
velopers have allowed ten-
ants to occupy some of the
units before a certificate of
occupancy has been issued.
It was also said water and
sewer are not yet approved;
that metered electricity has
not been connected to the
units by Choctawhatchee
Electric Cooperative and
that tenants are getting
power from the developers
construction power pole. Ten-
ants are said to be coming to
City Hall with complaints
when they should be going to
the developers.
It was also reported that a
concrete slab, not shown on


the approved development
order, has been installed. The
City has ordered the occu-
pied units to close until the
developers satisfy all provi-
sions of the approved devel-
opment order and the Certifi-
cate of Occupancy is issued.
Mayor Mickey Marse asked
Henninger to ask the devel-
opers to appear in his office
at City Hall to discuss this
problem.
In other matters, City
Planner Latilda Henninger
made a request for the coun-
cil to schedule a workshop to
discuss the details of a draft
"Fair Share" ordinance that,
would put the city into com-
pliance with Florida law
specifying that when traffic
infrastructure is not ad-
equate to service a new de-
velopment project, the devel-
oper be required to pay an
impact fee to be used to as


part of the funding to correct
road deficiencies. The work-
shop was scheduled for Tues-
day, Aug. 1.
Henninger introduced a re-
quest for approval of a town
house development to be
known as Bay Breeze Town
Homes. The project would be
built on 2.83 acres off of U.S.
331 south of SR- 20. The tract
is heavily wooded and would
require removal of trees to-
taling 390 inches in diameter.

The developer wants to
mitigate the comprehensive
plan requirement for recre-
ation area by contributing
funds to be used in construc-
tion of the City's Hammock
Bay Park. The mitigation
would allow construction of
five additional housing units
which, according to remarks
by developer Tom Baldwin,
could be sold for $330,000


each. An extended discus-
sion about howv to set the fee
for mitigation followed. It
was said that Walton County
sets such fees at five percent
of the current value set by
the County Property Ap-
praiser.
City Attorney Clayton
Adkinson said that the Com-
prehensive Plan should be
revised to deal with similar
requests, on a case-by-case
basis, in the future. Although
the developer pressed for an
answer to the request at this
meeting, the council said that
it had insufficient informa-
tion with which to act and
deferred action until
Henninger could get more
information..
Henninger introduced a re-
quest for development of
Pods 13 and 14 of the Ham-

Walton schools receive state report card


By Patrick Casey
The Florida Department
of Education released grades
for schools throughout the
state of Florida last week
based on standardized math,
reading and writing test
scores, annual learning gains
and other factors.
Walton County did ex-
tremely well in 2005-06. The
district posted eight "A"
schools, three "B" schools,
and one "C" school. Scores
were up in most regions
across the state as Walton
County posted the most A-
rated schools in the history
of the current process for the
county.
Five Walton County
schools improved their
grades from the 2004-05


school year, including Paxton
and South Walton High
Schools, which showed the
biggest gains, going from C-
graded schools to an "A."
Van R. Butler Elementary
School was the only one to
slide down a letter grade,
from an "A" to a "B". Walton
High School's score remained
a "C" as the school's total
points slipped from 367 in
2004-05 to 346 in 2005-06.
"I am very pleased with
the district's overall1 scores,"
Superintendent arlene
Anderson said at the Walton
County School Board meet-
ing on Monday night. "We
still have areas we must
work on but the gains at Pax-
ton and South Walton High
were outstanding. Our ad-


ministration and faculty
worked very hard this year
and we are proud of the re-
sults."
When asked what could be
done to raise Walton High's
grade, Anderson replied,
"We'll work on exceeding our
staffing plan, get more teach-
ers for remediation, adjust
class schedules to get those
who need the most help more
help. We can use year-long
classes to keep students
working in areas where they
need more instruction. Read-
ing coaches and even reading
remediation in math can
help some of our students."
Okaloosa and Martin
counties were the only two
counties in the state to have
all their schools graded at the


"B" level or above. Martin
County administers to 17
schools while Okaloosa
County had 38 schools
graded.
To receive an "A" grade, a
school had to earn 410 points
or more while meeting ad-
equate progress of lowest
students in reading and test
at least 95% of eligible stu-
dents. To receive a "B" grade,
a school had to earn 380
points or more while meeting
adequate progress of lowest
students in reading within
two years and test at least 90
percent of eligible students.
To receive a "C" grade, a

school had to earn 320 points
or more while meeting ad-

THIS YEAR'S JULY 4 Celebration is dedicated to the
memory of Paul and Ginny Cate, in honor of their many
years of service to the community. Shown here is Ginny Cate
(L), DBPA President Sara Comander and Paul Cate.


Independence Day


celebration planned


The flags are being
unfurled. The parade route is
being planned. Participants
are getting their decorations
ready. Strains of "The Star-
Spangled Banner" can be
heard on the warm, summer
air.
July 4 is nearly here and,
in DeFuniak Springs, that
means that another big
celebration is being planned.
Sponsored by the DeFuniak
Business and Professional
Association (DBPA), the
annual event will start at 5
p.m. with a parade around
Circle Drive. DBPA
President Sara Comander
said they moved the
festivities back one hour
because of the sweltering
heat. "It will be a little cooler
at 5 p.m.," she said. The
theme for this year's parade
is "Proud To Be An
American." There'll be cash
prizes and trophies awarded
for the best float. Admission
is free. Call 892-3950 for
more details.
For the first time, the City
of DeFuniak Springs is
donating funds for the
fireworks display. The city
donated $2,000 for the
display. "We are so grateful
to the city for their generous
gift," said Comander. "This
covers one-third of the
required funds for the light
display over Lake DeFuniak
and that really helps us put
on a great show for the
citizens and visitors that
typically join us for this great
event."
Comander noted that the
rest of the money came from
contributors throughout the
community and the club
itself. This year, a number of
organizations stepped up to
make sizable donations, for
everyone's benefit. In
addition to the city,
Choctawhatchee Piling and
Dock, owned by Rosier and
Casey Cuch -is, contributed,
as did Badcock Home
Furniture and More, Walton
County Teacher's Federal
Credit Union, Woods &
Associates, Little Cat
Productions, Factory
Connection, Peoples Bank,


National Tire Brokers,
Roehm Preschool &
Aftercare Center, Mosley
Lawn Service, Haircrafters,
The Book Store and Sara
Comander. WDSP Radio
contributed money for the
main entertainment, The
Sawmill Band from
Chumuckla, Florida. Many

will remember the group
from their 2006 Chautauqua
Assembly performance.
The line-up for the
celebration is packed full of
fun. There will be loads of
children's activities,
including a water slide
and moon walk by Glendale
Presbyterian Church, a
soaking booth by First
United Methodist Church,
games by the First
Presbyterian Church, face
painting by Millie Chapman
and Coastal
Mortgage, Fourth of July
treats by Tax Collector
Rhonda Skipper arid Clerk of
Court Martha Ingle. There
will be a bean bag toss, glitter
stickers, sack races and a
little-tots basketball toss,
too.
Roehm Preschool is
providing a bubble table, a
coloring table, a chalk table,
a watercolor table, a bead
table and face
painting. There'll also be free
bottled water by Sara
Comander and free
watermelon by WZEP Radio:
The opening ceremonies
will start at 6 p.m., with a jet
fly-over scheduled for 6:30
p.m. The Sawmill Band will
play until about 8:30 p.m.
and then the fireworks
display around 8:45 p.m.

This year's celebration is
dedicated to the memory of
Paul and Ginny Cate. "Paul
and Ginny were such a part
of this community," said
Comander. "They were
involved in so many
organizations and events.
Paul was a city councilman
and Ginny helped organize
the very first Walton County
History Fair. They left an
indelible mark on this
community and they will be
sorely missed."

Walton County School Board meeting notes


By Patrick Casey
The Walton County School
Board met on Monday, June

two regularly scheduled
meetings in the month.

Little

completes

advanced

training
Ken Little of the Walton
County Board of Commis-
sioners' Citizens Services
Division in DeFuniak
Springs, has just completed
training at Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency's
(FEMA) National Emergency
Training Center.
The U.S. Department of
Homeland Security, which
oversees FEMA, trains thou-
sands of Americans at this
facility each year to enhance
the ability of communities to
manage significant emergen-
cies and disasters, both
manmade and natural.
Little completed the Emer-
gency Management In-
stitute's Advanced Public In-
formation Officers (PIO)
course in Emmitsburg, MD,
on June 16, 2006. This ad-
vanced course builds on the
foundations established in
basic public information of-
ficers by focusing on public
-information responsibilities
in large-scale emergencies.
This is accomplished
through a series of lectures
and simulation exercises.
Lecture topics include legal
issues, risk communication.
interpersonal skills, effective
communications in emergen-
"cies. media relations and use
of the joint information sys-
tem. Participants participate
in a simulation exercise.
On March 1, 2003, FEMA
became part of the U.S. De-
partment of Homeland Secu-
rity. FEMA's continuing mis-
sion within the new depart-
ment is to lead the effort to
prepare the nation for all
hazards and effectively man-
age federal response and re-
covery efforts following any
national incident. FEMA also
initiates proactive mitigation
activities, trains first re-
sponders, and manages Citi-
zen Corps, the national flood
insurance program and the
U.S. Fire Administration.
Both Public Information
Officer Ken Little and Pub-
lic Information Coordinator
Sara Comander have com-
pleted the advanced PIO
training. Together, they are
charged with getting news to
the public and press about
county government and vari-
ous ongoing projects.
During hurricanes and
other extreme weather, they
issue releases regarding the
very latest information about
the position and strength of
the storm, its effects on the
coastal and inland communi-
ties and information on
emergency relief measures
following the storms.

tary school at Mossy Head
and the new high school that
is planned to replace Walton
High School. The timeline for
completion of the new school
at Mossy Head is December
1, 2007 while the new Walton
High School is looking at an
August 1, 2008 completion
date. Board member Mark
Davis commented that-get-
ting those schools open on


that timeline might be real-
istic only if everything falls
perfectly in line, which hasn't
been the experience of the
board in the past.
Cost continues to be an is-
sue with both schools as well.
Mossy Head Elementary
School has an estimated price
tag of $16.7 million while'
Walton High is looking at a
$36-37 million price tag. The


architectural firm presented
some cost saving measures to
the board that helped pare
down the estimated cost of
both schools somewhat,
mainly using less expensive
materials in some areas as in
style of brick, or shrinking
areas that might need large
amounts of concrete or pav-
ing.
Wayne Miller, supervisor
of administration and opera-
tions, told board members
that the school at Mossy
Head was budgeted and
nearly paid for, while the new
Walton High was budgeted
$12 million this year and $10
million for each of the next
two years. "Though the bud-
get may be tight for new
projects, it does'look at this


stage like we can build these
schools without borrowing
money," Miller said.
Jim McCall, chief financial
officer for the district, told
board members that the tax
base for the county is at $15.2
billion. "Though some of the
beach property may be as-
sessed at a lower value, pro-
jections are for the current
tax base to remain at least
constant, if not continue to
grow." It was pointed out to
the press in attendance, that
the current projects are being
funded without an increase in
the millage rate.
The board approved ad-
ministrative.personnel for re-
employment for the upcom-
ing school year. Unlike last
year, there was virtually no


changes in principals or as-
sistants at schools through-
out the county.
Emerald Coast Middle
School submitted a request
for three additional supple-
ments for coaches in the
'sports of tennis, cross coun-
try and golf. Students have
shown an interest in adding
these sports at the institu-
tion.
The board members ap-
proved a list of 54 contractors
that could be used to do work
for the school district in the
upcoming school year.
The next regularly sched-
uled meeting of the Walton
County School Board will be
held on Thursday, July 6 at 5
p.m. at the Tivoli Administra-
tive Complex.

F I g 1^ LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

PERSONAL COMMENT TS


EDITOR'S COMMENT By RON KELLEY



Guilty Until Proven Innocent


Anyone with access to a Panhandle newspaper in the last
week or so has seen reports about Walton County Commis-
sioner Scott Brannon and his ongoing dispute with the
Florida Elections Commission. The commission is charging
two violations ri gatrding Brannon's campaign account from
two years ago when he defeated incumbent Lane Rees. It
was Rees' campaign ,anagi-Tr, Guy Davidson, who filed the
complaint.
The entire problem seems to revolve around when and
how Brannon should have reported an expenditure. Having
examined the state's document and campaign records, the
question appears to revolve around whether or not Brannon
should have declared and paid an invoice he had not re-
ceived.
Brannon hired an Okaloosa County political consulting
firm to run his campaign. During the course of the cam-
paign, the consultant, Petermann. Corporation, contracted
with WMBB and WJHG television stations in Panama City
to air a series of campaign commercials. Because the televi-
sion stations contracted with Petermann Corporation, the
commercials were initially paid for by Petermann. At the
time the commercials began airing, Brannon had not yet
received an invoice, and so the expenditures were not listed
on the expenditure report due to be filed. Brannon did not
see the actual invoice copies until he received Petermann's
invoice. Brannon said that he paid and reported the expen-
diture when he received the invoice from Network Produc-
tions.
The Election Commission argues that Brannon should have
declared the two campaign expenditures at the time the
commercials were ordered., Brannon responded by asking
how he could have declared an expenditure and paid an in-
voice that had not been sent to him. "Was it an expenditure
when the ads were placed, or was it an expenditure when I
received it?" he asked.
Good question, but that's the only question. That's the
entire argument.
Not exactly the stuff of which good conspiracy plots are
made, is it?
Not that you would known that by reading the headlines
or stories in some other, less reputable newspapers. Those
writers and artists appeared to be trying their best to cre-
ate some dark conspiracy theory by lumping Brannon's case
in with every other local case to come,before the Elections
Commission in recent weeks. Unfortunately for the con-
spiracy buffs, one has nothing to do with the other. Brannon's
entire case has nothing to do with anything other than when
he should have declared the expenditures to those two tele-
vision stations. Yet those particular newspapers have sug-


News from


the



Capitol


gested that Brannon is guilty of election fraud and that he
has accepted the commission's charge. In truth, both state-
ments are false. As of this writing, he has been convicted of
nothing and has not yet. accepted any decision by the state.
This is just the kind of reporting that gives all news me-
dia a black eye. It makes it more difficult for the public to
put their trust in us. Our job is to report facts, all the facts,
and nothing more. Opinions are fine on the editorial page,
but they have no place in news reports. I'm particularly dis-
appointed because, by and large, local media usually does a
fair job of reporting the facts without too much of a built-in
slant, but in this case, they failed miserably and now we all
suffer.
In William Blackstone's famous Commentaries, it's noted
that "Every free man has an undoubted right to lay what
sentiments he pleases before the public; to forbid this is to
destroy the freedom of the press; but if he publishes what
is improper, mischievous or illegal, he must take the conse-
quences of his own temerity."
Now that's something worth putting down in print.


Editor,
On behalf of all of the teachers in Walton County who work
hard at educating students and making residents proud to
say their children are educated here, I want to thank Mr.
Gary Towne for his very generous gift to me as the Walton
County Teacher of the Year. At the June 5 Walton County
School Board meeting, the Walton Education Foundation
presented me with a $5000 check which Mr. Towne donated
in recognition of this honor. Money is not a primary factor
when a person chooses teaching as a career. Rather a love of
learning and working with young people are the incentives
that keep us going and striving for the excellence that we
know our students are so capable of achieving. Looking at
the grades our schools earned this year certainly reflect this
excellence. However, such a grand and ufiselfish contribu-
tion reflects that we, as teachers, are appreciated by the citi-
zens of Walton County and sends the message that teachers
are truly valued.
Again, thank you Mr. Towne. I deeply appreciate what
this gift represents and feel very special to have been the
recipient.
Dr. Cheryl Mixson
South Walton High School
2006 Walton County Teacher of the Year

Dear Editor,
Walton County is the recipient of Topsail State Park due
in large part to several local i residents making many treks
to Tallahassee to fight the battle to protect the habitat of
the beach mouse in order to ward off developers, including
St. Joe, who had their eye on this gorgeous section of beach
for their own purposes. Eventually the state of Florida pur-
chased the area for visitor and fortunate resident alike to
enjoy into perpetuity. Is this simply a David and Goliath
story or is it citizens with the big picture in their scope?
The county has allotted over $15 million to restore a few
miles of beach on the western edge of Walton County with a
projected amount of over $65million required to restore the
entire stretch of Walton beach in the near future. This is
just a drop in the bucket of the monies the county, state and
federal taxpayer will pay on a continual basis to protect and
maintain the beaches so that the Walton County economy
will continue to thrive.
If the federal government, under the guidelines of the En-
dangered Species Act, must spend $5 million a year over
the next 20 years to preserve the beach mouse habitat, and
thus to protect large segments of our beach from the hands
of developers, then God bless the beach mouse.
The next time you stand awe struck at the variations of
color of the emerald green waters or you listen to the waves
lapping against the shore or you hear the squeak of the sugar
sand beneath your feet, thank the beach mouse and the En-
dangered Species Act for helping to preserve open spaces of
beach so humans can experience this venerable sense of
quiet, peace and wonder.

Freeport accident leaves three dead, four injured


By BRUCE COLLIER
Two Cincinnati motorists
were killed and four other
people injured in an accident
that took place on Hwy. 331
near the Clyde B. Wells
Bridge on June 24.
Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) investigators Trooper
R.M. Miller and Cpl. K.D.


Davis reported that a vehicle
was traveling north on Hwy.
331. The driver was Jesus R.
Bernal, age unknown, of
Freeport. Two passengers
were in the vehicle, Alfonso
Rivera, 41, also of Freeport,
and an unidentified 29-year-
old, also from Freeport.
Bernal apparently tray-


eled onto the right shoulder
after passing another north-
bound car. He overcorrected
to get back on the road, caus-
ing him to swerve into the
southbound lane.
A second vehicle was trav-
eling south. The driver was
James D. Rook, 43, of Cincin-
nati. Also in the vehicle were


Margie'L. Rook, 41, Magan
Doherty, 14, and Kylie P.
Rook, 14, all of Cincinnati.
Bernal struck the front of
Rook's vehicle. James and
Margie Rook were fatally in-
jured, as was the unidentified
passenger in Bernal's vehicle.
Bernal, Rivera, and
Doherty were seriously in-


jured. Kylie Rook received
minor injuries.
All riders in Rook's vehicle
were wearing seatbelts. Nei
their Bernal, Rivera, or thf
unidentified passenger wern
wearing seatbelts.
The FHP report said tha:
alcohol appeared to have
been a factor in the crash


Charges are pending.


Grimditch charged with probation violation


By BRUCE COLLIER
Walton County Sheriff's
Office (WCSO) deputies ar-
rested Beverly Grimditch on
June 22 on a charge of viola-
tion of probation.
Grimditch was trans-
ported to Walton County Jail
from West Florida Hospital,
where she was being treated


for injuries sustained in a
June 15 automobile accident
in Milton.
Grimditch, 50, faces pos-
sible charges in Santa Rosa
County in the death of 22-
year-old Milton resident Wil-
liam Christopher Villar.
Villar was killed June 15
when a car, allegedly driven


by Grimditch, crashed
through the roof of his house.
Milton police are awaiting
the results of a blood alcohol
test taken from Grimditch.

Grimditch, who lives in
Navarre, has been on proba-
tion in Walton County since
September of 2005, when she


plead to misdemeanor DUI,
aggravated fleeing/eluding of
a law enforcement officer, and
a violation of the open con-
tainer law.
A statement issued by the
State Attorney's office in-
cluded a copy of Grimditch's
arrest warrant, signed by Cir-
cuit Judge Kelvin C. Wells.


The warrant recites five
counts of alleged probation
violations, including DUI,
fleeing/eluding an officer, op-
erating a motor vehicle for a
purpose unrelated to busi-
ness, involvement in an acci-
dent with injury, and using
intoxicants to excess.


I, NICOLE KEMP, am on
probation for petit theft.

BRANNON" FROM FRONT


for, all bills were paid that I
received."
Also, says Brannon, all
funds used to pay for the ads
came from Brannon's cam-
paign account, that the ac-
count was not underfunded,
and that Petermann did not
"use his credit" to pay for the
ads.
"My personal bank
records clearly reflect that
the entire amount of the in-
voice was transferred from a
checking account, mine per-
sonally, to my campaign ac-
count. And it was paid.
"Was it an expenditure
when the ads were placed, or
was it an expenditure when I
received it?
"It would have been im-
proper and not even followed
policy to report something I
didn't receive.
"Accrual accounting has
been used in political races
forever.
"This whole thing has got-
ten so wrapped around the
axle, and so many other
things into play."

The FEC staff recommen-
dation is that there is "prob-
able cause" to charge
Brannon with violating the
statute.

Responding to another
newspaper's headline that he


has accepted a $1,000 fine, "I
have not formally accepted
anything.
"That's totally misleading.
I reported every expenditure
as I have received them.
"I want to make the case
clear to the people that I did
nothing wrong."
Brannon has 20 days in
which to decide whether to
accept the decision and pay
the fine, or to proceed further.
He has not made up his mind.
"I've done nothing wrong,"
he said, "and there's nothing
changed...."
. Commenting on the recent
consent agreement signed by
the Walton Association ofVot-
ers on campaign finance law
violations, Brannon said, "it's
a system that's designed... it
will wear you down to the
point that you spend thirty to
forty thousand dollars on a
thousand dollar fine. So what
do you think most people do?
"My attorney has handled
clients all over the state of
Florida and rrmo-t of them pay
the fine. Most of them don't
have this media exposure,
and they pay it."
He also noted that the
complaint was brought by
Guy Davidson, the campaign
manager of the defeated can-
didate Lane Rees.
"Did an ordinary voter and
citizen file this thing? No."

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 29, 2006


Commission aids with proposed health department building


By Dotty Nist
I At the request of Jim
Jones, administrator for the
Walton County Health De-
partment, the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) has agreed to
help in the face of a large cost
overrun that is anticipated
on the department's pro-
posed new building in DeFu-
iiiak Springs.
: On June 27, Jones pre-
sented the commissioners
with an update on planning
for the new building and re-
quested their assistance, giv-
ing them a choice of several


ways the county could help.
Recently the department
was notified that due to state
funding cuts, moneys coming
to the health department
from the state for the build-
ing would not come close to
paying the full cost.
Since then, Jones re-
vealed, plans for the building
have been redesigned for the
purpose of reducing cost per
square foot while maximiz-
ing space.
"By redesigning the build-
ing from one story to two, the
building's footprint has been
reduced by approximately 50


percent," Jones explained.
He said that the building
would still provide 32,000
square feet of space and that
his staff have deemed that
the new plans will meet the
department's needs "for the
foreseeable future."
"The current estimate is
that available funding will
complete the entire shell of
the building and about 45 to
50 percent of the interior,"
Jones reported.
He told the commissioners
that the building as cur-
rently proposed would cost
$7.3 million to complete, $2


million more than the state
funds currently appropriated
for the new facility.
While the commissioners
stopped short of opening up
the county "checkbook" to fix
the $2 million deficiency, they
also did not opt for the most
stringent option, which was
to request that the state ar-
chitects designing the build-
ing redo the plans so that the
building could be completed
with the available $5.3 mil-
lion, which, Jones noted,
would not only have reduced
the building size but delayed
the completion date.
Instead, they agreed to a
combination of Jones' options
A and B, following a motion


for that action by District 2
Commissioner Ken Pridgen.
The first option was to
pass a resolution requesting
that the state appropriate
the additional $2 million. The
county lobbyist is also to be
contacted to push for the ap-
propriation.
Option B was approval of
a motion that, if the state did
not provide the funding, that
once the partially completed
building is turned over to the
county, that the county would
complete it "with a phased
approach."
In the absence of the ad-
ditional state funding, ac-
cording to the decision, the
county would begin in fiscal


year 2007-08 appropriations
to finish the building, with
those appropriations con-
tinuing annually for up to
three years. The county fund-
ing could also include use of
county work crews.
Walton County Finance
Director Bill Imfeld stated
that the approval of the mo-
tion would not impact the
current budget. County Con-
struction Manager Rick
Millard told the commission-
ers that he saw no problem
with county crews helping
with the building construc-
tion.

Pridgen's motion was ap-
proved by unanimous vote.

Doctors, particularly those
who are involved in research,
are no strangers to contro-
versy. Dr. Scott Haufe and Dr.
Anthony Mork are no excep-
tions. Despite irrefutable sta-
tistical success of the endo-
scopic technique developed
by Haufe and Mork, many
doctors who still perform the
traditional style of invasive
back surgery have de-
nounced MicroSpine's tech-
niques and disputed their
success. Haufe, who with Dr.
Mork co-founded MicroSpine
in DeFuniak Springs, has
written several medical re-
search papers, two of them
have already been published
in major medical journals.
The latest paper deals with
stem cell research as it ap-
plies to spinal pain and re-
covery.
Stem cell research is one
of the most controversial of
all current medical issues.
Embryonic stem cells have
the ability to develop into vir-
tually any cell in the body,
and they may have the po-
tential to treat medical con-
ditions such as diabetes and
Parkinson's disease and
other life-threatening ail-
ments.
MicroSpines's research
did not use embryonic stem
cells, but instead utilized
cells taken from the patient's
own pelvic bone. The idea
was to determine whether or
not injections of the cells into
the patient's spinal discs
would help regenerate tissue
and help reduce infection at
the site. This would be an al-
ternative to traditional
disc replacement or
fusion surgery.
The technique
had been shown
to work in
animal trials,
but there
had been
no /j .


human studies.
Ten patients with con-
firmed spinal disc pain vol-
unteered to participate in the
study, which included the
stem cell injection, followed
by a two-week course of hy-
perbaric oxygen therapy. At
six and twelve month inter-
vals, MicroSpine documented
those patients' degree of pain
relief and discovered that
none of the patients experi-
enced any improvement in
lower back pain.
The conclusion was that
stem cell injection therapy
appears to be of little value.
Asked if he were disap-
pointed by the test results,
Dr. Haufe said, "Well, it's un-
fortunate that it did not re-
juvenate the discs and help
those 10 patients, but the re-
search was still a success. We
were able to demonstrate
that this type of cell therapy
does not work to repair the
disc. That means that signifi-
'cant amounts of time, energy
and financial resources do
not have to be spent pursu-
ing this kind of therapy.
Sometimes," he said, "it's
just as important to
prove a thing doesn't
work, as to prove
that it does."


DR. SCOTT HAUFE
(shown here) and Dr.Anthony
Mork, of MicroSpine in De-
Funiak Springs,
recently published a
paper in a
distinguished
medical journal
regarding A
spinal disc
regeneration.

THE 'GATORS
By BRUCE COLLIER
Boating and fishing on the Choctawhatchee River have an addeded
element of interest the real possibility of alligator encounters.
Jimmy Davidson and his wife, Doris, live on Hwy. 90, several miles
east of Ponce de Leon. A regular fisherman on the Choctawhatchee
River, Jimmy's last trip out was three weeks ago.
He doesn't always see alligators, but he knows the best times of
the day to find them.
"At the crack of dawn, or just before dark," he says, is the most
likely time to spot the local lizard life.
"I've seen as many as 17 of them at a time," says Jimmy, who
doesn't hunt or eat alligators, and,-- regards them as something of a
nuisance.
He says he has talked to local fish and game officers, county offi-
cials and even state legislators, but to little avail.
"We need to get them [state] senators on a boat."
Though there have been no documented accounts of alligators at-
tacking local people, Jimmy says that the resident reptiles sometimes
take a keen interest in fishermen, their boats, and especially their
dogs.
He recounts two stories, one in which an alligator swam alongside
his fishing boat for a time, "watching me."
Another time, he says, a fisherman had his dog taken from the
boat by a passing alligator.
He estimates that the largest alligator he has seen was about four
feet long. Not large by zoo standards, but "they get too close to you.
"They get ornery and they eat."
Jimmy has no plans to get an alligator permit anytime soon, but
would like to see something done to control the population.


"I don't believe in just killing something, but I'm going to be let alone when I'm fishing," he says.
A dawn visit to the Choctawhatchee River, just below the George L. Dickenson Bridge near Caryville, yielded
no 'gator photo ops, or tracks. One promising object lurking near the shore proved to be a submerged tree root.
Even so, this season's alligator harvest permit quota has been purchased statewide. The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) website projected thatl8 harvest permits were to be issued in Walton
County for 2006. According to the website, two alligators may be harvested per permit.
FWC statistics say that in 2005, six alligators were reported as harvested in Walton County, in September and
October. The largest was, 8 feet 10 inches in length. Holmes County reported four harvested in 2005, the largest
10 feet 6 inches in length.


DEVELOPMEN T-CONTINUES to encroach on the alligator's natural habitat, resulting in more
human and alligator contact. This young gator decided to do some encroaching of his own.

With a reputation as a war
fighter and acknowledged as
a decorated American hero,
Col. George "Bud" Day still
has an inspirational effect on
others.
That is why friends and
colleagues from across the
nation have come forward
with contributions to name
the Reserve Officer Training
Corps (ROTC) program at
Okaloosa-Walton College af-
ter the Medal of Honor recipi-
ent and former prisoner of
war. The gifts will also pro-
vide for ROTC scholarships
for freshman and sophomore
ROTC cadets.
Shot down over North
Vietnam Aug. 26, 1967, Day
spent 67 months as a pris-
oner of war, tortured and
abused at the infamous
"Hanoi Hilton" prison. '
Stories of his heroism and
fortitude abound. Inspiring
as these stories are, it is his
service to veterans since his
retirement which has in-
spired. retired military per-
sonnel and others to recog-
nize Col. Bud Day and his ac-
complishments by raising
funds to name the OWC De-
partment of Military Science
and ROTC after this true
American hero.
"There is no finer model for
these future service men and
women to emulate than Col.
Bud Day," said retired Lt.
Col. Bob Reinlie.
In recent years, Day has
waged his fight not on the
battlefield but in the court-
room in an effort to sue the
federal government. Accord-
ing to Reinlie the purpose of
the lawsuit was to restore
lifetime medical care to mili-
tary retirees, benefits they
were promised by recruiters
when they enlisted.
The principle accomplish-
ment by the legal skirmish
was TRICARE for Life, a pro-
gram that provides!many re-
r ; 'l l.


GEORGE BUD DAY


tired veterans with a health
care benefit.
Reinlie, one of the plain-
tiffs in Day's decade long law-
suit, is now the local catalyst
of the effort to pay tribute to
Day.

"Only Bud Day had guts
and tenacity to organize the
grass roots folks to 'take on
the government,'" Reibnlie
said. As a result of his efforts
to restore benefits, retired
military veterans, their
wives and widows are
healthier and better off fi-
nancially."
While "flattered and hon-
ored" by the new attention,
Day, who resides in Shalimar
with his wife Doris, said, "I
have truly been a blessed
man-in this life and am grate-
ful for how so many of my
friends have chosen to do
what they have done on my
behalf."
Dr. Bob Richburg, OWC
president, said the response
to the Day Endowment "has
been overwhelming" with
more than $30,000 raised
thus far from coast to coast.
He said donations to the
Day' Endowment will be
'matched bylthe state.

I Stand On History's Corner
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC

I once was called a State House, now I'm Indepen-
dence Hall, stand on history's corner on a Philadelphia
mall. Face the green where freedom rings in silence to
the ear, But the bell tolls daily in the minds of those who
want to hear. In the chambers of my meeting place, two
hundred years ago, Words of strong debate from out my
chambers overflowed. A government was founded and a
portrait finely etched And the face of freedom's guaran-
tee on parchment had been sketched.
I listened to the arguments, I heard the strong debate,I
shed a tear of joy when they discussed the people's fate.
They granted all a freedom that nobody could refute, The
right to speak what he believed was granted absolute.
It is a freedom that's denied to millions on this earth,
Yet many here still don't appreciate its' golden worth. For
every freedom guaranteed; there rests a certain trust, In
the right of conscience, right of thought, to say the things'
we must.
Every day the tourists come, to visit chamber halls,To
hear the words of independence echo off the walls. They
glance out rippled windows at the beauty of the green,
Some understand the magnitude of all that they have
seen
Come here to see where freedom's voice was duly given
birth, Come here to understand the measure of your
voice's worth.

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.

Local sports news and notes


By PATRICK CASEY
For the second time in six
months, Tate High School had
to go in search of a new foot-
ball coach. In December,
Johnny Hawkins replaced
Charlie Armstrong, who had
led the Aggies to just four
wins the past two seasons.
Now Hawkins has resigned
the post allegedly after find-
ing that he would have only
four coaches instead of twelve
that he expected. The Aggies
must now play catchup for
the rest of the summer.
Coming. off an 0-9
season, Tate already was fac-
ing a long climb up the foot-
ball ranks. Now faced with
possibly a third new system
in less than a year, that climb
may be more than they can
accomplish in 2006. Ed Rigby
was named the Aggies' third
coach in six months and


fourth in three years on Sat-
urday. Rigby, a 1986 gradu-
ate, played for three coaches
during his four years at Tate,
a trend the school must break
to become successful at the
sport.
Athletes who achieved a 3.0
grade point average, or bet-
ter, during the spring semes-
ter at Troy University include
Jennifer Hogg, who gradu-
ated with a B.S. in athletic
training. Hogg ran track at
Troy. Saundra Ingram,
who competes on the univer-
sity rodeo team, compiled a
3.2 grade point average in
marketing. Both athletes are
former Walton County stu-
dents.
The annual Iron Bowl be-
tween Alabama and Auburn,
along with all other primary
rivalry games in the
SEC, will now be played on


Thanksgiving weekend
thanks to a new rule passed
by the conference last week.
East Gadsden needs a foot-
ball coach following the de-
parture of Rodell Thomas,
who was hired when
the school opened in 2003.
Thomas, now an assistant
coach at Jefferson County.
failed to post a winning
record in his three seasons
and finished 7-23 overall.
Panama City Arnold Ath-
letic Director Julie Hale an-
nounced Mitch Kelly would
succeed Chris Lee as
the second head baseball
coach in school history. Hale-
also announced that Willie
Spears has been hired as the
Arnold girls basketball
coach.

Sorrells headed to alma mater


By Patrick Casey
Former Walton High
School football coach Frank
Sorrells has accepted a job to
coach the football team at his
alma mater, Broadway High
School, in Broadway, Vir-
ginia.
Sorrells, who was let go by
the Walton County School
District after the 2005 foot-
ball season amid some contro-
versy, had been working at
Vernon High School in the
spring and was preparing to
take a post at Bay High
School as an assistant foot-
ball coach.

Jeff


By CHUCK HINSON
At 36-years-old, many of us
are just getting started in
their career, but for tennis
legend Andre Agassi, an icon
to the sport for more than 20
years, it's time to say good-
? bye.
The announcement came
this past Friday at a news
conference that was held at
Wimbledon. The gathering
was thought to be just an-
other attempt by the tennis
star to stir up the media.
With a nervous voice and
tears in his eyes, Agassi an-
nounced that at the conclu-
sion of the U.S. Open, he
would hang up his racquet
and enjoy life out of the spot-
light.
After years of dealing with
numerous injuries, and
months of contemplation
about the decision, Agassi fi-
nally said the simple words
that he knew he had to say
at just the right place and
time.
Back problems have kept
on a

Harris/Jang


win tourneys


By CHUCK HINSON
In East Meadow, NY, John
Harris won the Commerce
Bank Championship on Sun-
day for his first Champion-
ships Tour title, birdieing the
first hole of a playoff round
with Tom Jenkins.
In only his fourth year,
Harris has had eight top-10
finishes. This first victory
matched the tournament's
best round with a 64 on Sun-
day after Harrisb5bhogied the
18th hole in regulation play.
Harris took home the
winner's share of $225,000
from a purse of $1.5 million.
In Pittsford, NY, South
Korean golf-wonder Jeong
Jang won the Wegmans
LPGA for her second career
LPGA Tour title, closing with
a 2-under 70 for a one-stroke
victory over Julieta Granada.
Jang, the 26-year-old 2005
Women's British Open cham-
pion, had a 13-under 275 to-
tal on the Locust Hill course.
She has become the eighth
South Korean winner this
season, and has earned
$270,000. This moves her
from 11th to seventh on the
money list, with total win-

Gordon


back on track


By CHUCK HINSON
Not sinceOctober of 2005
has driver Jeff Gordon
walked out of the winner's
circle at any NASCAR race.
This past Sunday he burned
rubber and waved to the
crowds as he took his victory
lap after winning the Dodge/
Save Mart 350 Nextel Cup
race in Sonoma, CA.
Gordon started llth in the
pole in the 43-car field, tak-
ing the lead for the first time
in the lap 49 of the 110-lap
race. Gordon led a race-high
44 laps, winning his fifth
Sonoma victory and the 74th
win of his career.
Aftqr accepting the trophy
and the Nextel points, Gor-


don told the packed stands
that he was now engaged to
long-time girlfriend Ingrid
Vandebosch.
The recent victory slapped
Gordon back into the top .10
in points standing, with just
10 races remaining until the
Chase for the Nextel Cup
championship begins.
That race is for those driv-
ers in the top 10 points stand-
ing after the 26th race of the
season has been run.
Gordon had his hands full
last season, barely qualifying
for last year's Chase cham-
pionship. He fired his crew
and had to reorganize.
That took time and took
away points and victories,


leading many fans to ques-
tion Gordon's abilities as a
driver.
With this past weekend's
victory, Gordon hopes to as-
sure his fans that he intends
to bounce back.
Gordon drove 16 races this
year before his first win. This
is the first time since enter-
ing NASCAR's top series
full-time in 1993 that Gordon
has gone so long without a
victory.
Ryan Newman finished
second, Terry LaBonte came
in third, Greg Biffle finished
third followed by pole-winner
Kurt Busch, Carl Edwards
and Jeff Burton.

him out of many tourna-
ments. Agassi played' only
one match in the past three
months due to his back.
He is seeded at 25th place
at the all-England Club,
where he started his next to
last tournament this past
Monday. Agassi does intend
to enter as many as four
hard-court events between
Wimbledon 'and the U.S.
Open.
Agassi knew that the 2006
season would be his last, but
he wanted to save the sur-
prise announcement until
Wimbledon, where he won
his first Grand Slam title.
The once-flashy, brightly
attired, quick-witted and
short-tempered tennis player
is now a father of two. He
sports a shaved head and
wears very "normal" tennis
attire.
Agas.si married female
tennis star Steffi Graf in
2001. Before Graf, Agassi
was married to actress
Brooke Shields.

6,217 acres of critical


habitat proposed for three


beach mouse species


By Dotty Nist
Three unique mouse spe-
cies found only in the Florida
Panhandle along the coast
will have a better chance for
survival if current proposals
by the U.S. Fish.and Wild-
life Service are adopted.
The Choctawhatchee
beach mouse, found in Wal-
ton, Bay and Okaloosa coun-
ties and the Perdido Key


beach mouse, found in
Escambia County, have been
listed as endangered species
by the federal government
since 1985.
At that time, areas within
those counties were desig-
nated as "critical habitat" for
these mice species, which live
in burrows in the coastal
dunes.
Critical habitat areas are


W.. .. _

BEACH MICE are small mammals that are native to the
dune area along the coastline of Florida and Alabama. They
are nocturnal, feeding mainly on seeds and fruits from dune
plants but also consuming insects. Threats to their popula-
tions have included increasing development along the coast,
predation by domestic cats, and competition for food, mostly
with house mice.


considered essential to the
preservation of a protected
species. Designating critical
habitat areas does not affect
the ownership of the proper-
ties that are included, nor
does it establish a refuge,
preserve or any type of con-
servation area, or allow gov-
ernment or public access to
private property. It does not
include existing developed
sites within the designated
area, roads, driveways, build-
ings, or similar features.
Federal agencies are re-
quired to consult with the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
with regard to any activities
within critical habitat areas
that they undertake, fund or
permit that may impact the
habitat.
A critical habitat designa-
tion may affect private land-
owners when they under-
take activities requiring a
federal permit, such as an
expansion to an existing
structure.
Owners of undeveloped
land within critical habitat
areas are requested to seek
an incidental take permit
from U.S. Fish and Wildlife
prior to development activity,
so that a determination can
be made whether the activ-

The history of our


Independence


By Jeffrey Powell
The fourth of July is a date
Americans observe to
celebrate independence from
the Kingdom of Great Britain

Today, July 4 is celebrated
with parades, picnics and
fireworks. Major league
baseball and Nascar hold
events on the holiday


weekend and in many
locations politicians will be
on hand to mesmerize the
masses with patriotic
rhetoric.
This year, July 4 falls on a
Tuesday, a day on which
many people, in this era of
hustle and bustle, will be
working. In the past, almost
no one worked on this day.


Work habits have changed
and so has the way we
celebpatg the independence
of the pation.
In 1777, British officers
heard a 13-gun salute, once
in the morning and again in
the evening. Americans were
actually celebrating before

Helicopter may be in future for South


Walton Mosquito Control District


By Jeffrey Powell
South Walton Mosquito
Control District (SWMCD)
Chairwoman Marge
Crawford believes that her
organization would benefit
from the purchase of a heli-
copter. The possibility was
raised at the SWMCD
board's June 20 meeting.
"The possible purchase is
in the long term plan,"
Crawford said, meaning that
the purchase would be at
least five years in the future.


Arguments for the pur-
chase include the aircraft's
ability to access areas un-
reachable by other means. A
final decision on the pur-
chase will be made "down the
road" but Crawforc els re-
serving funds now l1 a pru-
dent financial move.
Crawford said that the
community can play a large
part in helping reduce mos-
quito populations. "The more
people do, the less we have
to do."


Removing any standing
water around a home elimi-
nates egg-laying areas for
mosquitoes. "We are not here
to eradicate mosquitoes, just
control them," stressed
Crawford.
Even in times of drought,
water can still collect around
a home. Birdbaths should be
inspected and flushed regu-
larly. Plant pots, old tires and
appliances can also hold wa-
ter long enough for mosqui-
toes to lay eggs and repro-


duce.
Items also discussed at the
June 20 board meeting in-
cluded the approval of spray-
ing for dog flies by the State
Department of Agriculture.
Strict guidelines dictate
when and where the plane
can spray.
The SWMCD location on
north CR 393 will accept
tires and white goods for dis-
posal at no charge.
The SWMCD can be

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JUNE 29, 2006


MOUSE


ity would negatively impact
the habitat.
Negative impacts are
weighed against the benefits
of the activity being proposed,
and exclusions may be al-
lowed for economic reasons or
in cases where the activity
would not result in the extinc-
tion of the species, or where
conservation plans are in
place on the property that
benefit the species.
The primary critical habi-
tat created for the
Choctawhatchee and Perdido
Key beach mice in 1985 con-
sisted of the front part of the
dunes along the coast. In
1998, new research came to
light indicating that interior
oak-dominated scrub habitat
and scrub dunes were impor-
tant to the survival of beach
mouse populations, particu-
larly for sheltering during
and after hurricanes.
U.S. Fish and Wildlife is
now proposing a total of 13
critical habitat "units" along
coastal dunes in the Florida
Panhandle and south Ala-
bama, not only for the
Choctawhatchee and Perdido
Key beach mice but also for
the St. Andrews beach mouse,


FROM FRONT


which inhabits Bay and Gulf
Counties.
The latter species was
listed for protection in 1998,
and its critical habitat is be-
ing proposed for the first time
this year.
The proposed St. Andrews
beach mouse critical habitat
and the revisions to the
Choctawhatchee andPerdido
Key beach mice units reflect
the new findings on the im-
portance of the scrub dune
habitat and scrub dunes, the
latter units encompassing
landward expansion.
The critical habitat units
extend 500 feet landward of
the mean high tide line.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife
proposals are in response to
orders by two U.S. District
Courts.
The critical habitat units
total 6,217 acres. Over 80 per-
cent of the property is owned
by the federal government
and the Florida Division of
Recreation and Parks. About
18 percent of it is privately
owned.

The Walton County critical
habitat units total 614 acres
in the Topsail Hill, Grayton


Beach, and Deer Lake areas.
Of that total amount, 479
acres are state park land and
135 acres are privately
owned.
Two privately owned Wal-
ton County areas where con-
servation plans for beach
mice are in place have been
proposed for exclusion from
the Choctawhatchee beach
mouse critical habitat area.
These are the 75-acre
WaterColor/WaterSound and
'the 10-acre Stallworth Pre-
serve properties. _

A draft economic analysis
for the conservation proposal
for the three mice species es-
timates a $5 million to $9.4
million annual cost to be ex-
pended for the preservation of
the three species in the Pan-
handle over a 20-year period.
It is projected that 95 to 98
percent of that cost would be
associated with residential
and commercial development
on private land, where land
preservation, setbacks or
"set-asides," monitoring and
predator control may be re-
quired.
It is envisioned that many
of the cost impacts would be


borne by developers of for-
merly undeveloped property
for requirements such as the
above-mentioned and includ-
ing on-site modifications to
protect species habitat.
For future development
projects in Perdido Key, U.S.
Fish and Wildlife is propos-
ing a one-time fee of $100,000
for each acre of mouse habi-
tat, to go into a conservation
fund, plus an annual pay-


ment of $201 for each hous-
ing unit to be constructed.
For other developable ar-
eas in critical habitat areas,
conservation set-asides of 5 to
11 percent of the develop-
ment parcel are envisioned,
plus additional conservation
efforts such as predator con-
trol.
On June 26 and 27, U.S.
Fish and Wildlife held two
public hearings to provide


information and gather pub-
lic input on the proposals.
Comments may still be
submitted for consideration
through July 13. Documents
providing information on the
proposals and instructions on
submitting comments are
available by logging on to
www.fws.gov/panamacity/
panamacity/> or by calling
(850)769-0552.


Winds of change leaves


lasting contribution


Eyeing the tall, gangly
bushes in a circle on their
path to the new Visual Arts
Building of The Arts Center
at Okaloosa-Walton College
in Niceville, Dotty Blacker, of
Valparaiso, and the late
Christian LaRoche, of
Niceville, agreed again.
"Somebody should do some-
thing else with that space."
Gradually the idea -to en-
hance the entrance of the Vi-
sual Arts building took root
- the two women decided to
work together to replace the
circle of common greenery
with a professional sculp-
ture.
LaRoche and Blacker
helped select Pensacola art-
ist Sid Kamerman to work on
the sculpture and made a
joint gift to fully underwrite
the commissioned artwork.
Today, the 16-foot-high
Winds of Change sculpture
stands prominently in front
of the Visual Arts Building on
the OWC Niceville campus.
Appearing to have freshly
erupted from the earth, the
sculpture connotes move-
ment, growth and change.
"What I had in mind is geo-
logical. It'is coming out of the
ground. It's seemingly bro-
ken, in a state of flux, and its
direction is ambiguous," said
Kamerman.
Because of the vision and
dedication of two benefac-
tors, Christian LaRoche and
Dottie Blacker, and the tal-
ent of artist Sid Kamerman,
The Arts Center now has an-
other thought-provoking
sculpture.

Water Saving Tips

*When adjusting water temperatures,
instead of turning water flow up, try turning
it down. If the water is too hot or cold, turn
the offender down rather than increasing
water flow to balance the temperature.


If the toilet flush handle frequently sticks
in the flush position, letting water run
constantly, replace or adjust it.


Consider using a commercial car wash
that recycles water. If you wash your own car,
park on the grass to do so.


Create an awareness of the need for water
conservation among children. Avoid the
purchase of recreational water toys that
require a constant stream of water.


*Be aware of and follow all water-conserv'ation
and water shortage rules and restrictions,
which may be in effect in your area.
