DFS puts on the fourth

By BRUCE COLLIER
Music, a parade, free wa-
termelon, patriotic speeches,
and a benchful of beauty
queens marked the Indepen-
dence Day celebrations in
DeFuniak Springs.
The event began at 5 p.m.
with a parade around Lake
DeFuniak on Circle Drive.
Parading were representa-
tives of the Walton County
Sheriff, DeFuniak Springs
Police, and various area fire
departments.
Also on hand were area
elected officials, and those
hopeful of future election.
Parade Marshall was Sonny
Yates.
The parade was led by a
trio of boys, dressed as "The
Spirit of'76," bearing the flag
of the original 13 colonies
that declared independence
from Great Britain on July 4,
1776.
The parade also featured _o
a Red Hat Ladies contingent,
horsemen, pony carts, and %
representatives from Walton
County Heritage Society, 'THE SPIRIT OF'76 LEADS off Fourth of July parade in DeFuniak Springs.
Chautauqua Hall of Brother-
hood, and other associations.
Following the parade, the
crowd drifted to the
Lakeyard amphitheater,
where the DeFuniak Busi-
ness and Professional Asso-
ciation (DBPA) sponsored a
concert and community get-
together.
Master of ceremonies was
Ron Kelley, editor of the Her-
aid/Breeze. This year's cel- L
ebration was dedicated to the PRETTY MAIDS INA ROW as eight beauty queens receive the applause of the
memory of the late Paul and
Virginia Cate, both of whom
were actively involved in ,
many aspects of community WARBIRDS FLY OVER Lakeyard Inde-

Laird seeking re-election to school board seat


William E. (Bill) Laird,
chairman of the Walton
County School Board, has
filed for re-election with the
Supervisor of Elections.
Laird is a candidate for Wal-
ton County School Board Dis-
trict 2.
Laird graduated from
Walton High School, OWC,
and the University of West
Florida with a Bachelor of
Arts degree. He then served
four years in the U.S. Air
Force and is a Vietnam-era
veteran. Upon returning to
Walton County after service,
Laird gained extensive expe-
rience in residential and
commercial construction.
In 1988, he began to teach
residential carpentry for the
Walton County School Sys-
tem at Walton Vocational-
Technical Center. While em-
ployed at the Vo-Tech, Laird
returned to UWF and ob-
tained a Masters of Educa-
tion degree, specializing in
vocational education/voca-
tional technical education.
During this period of his
formal education he became
a member in the Phi Kappa


Phi National Honor Society.
On May 29,2002, Laird re-
signed his teaching position
to run for the District 5 (now'
District 2) seat of the Walton
County School Board. He
was elected to the Walton
County School Board on Sep-
tember 10, 2002.
Residents of the Glendale
area, he and his wife Jeanne
have been married for 31
years. They have three adult
children and two grandchil-
dren who attended schools in
the Walton County School
System.
Laird said, "I wish to
thank those who supported
me through their work and
contributions in my past elec-
tion campaign. In sincere
gratitude and thanks to ,the
voters of Walton County for
the privilege and honor of
serving the last four years, I
will not request, ccept do-
nations from anyone to pay
for the expenses of this cam-
paign.
"In the 2002 election, I be-
lieve the Walton County vot-
ers based their decision to
elect me on my enthusiasm,


principles, experience, and
,education. Now I ask the vot-
ers to also review my perfor-
mance as a School Board
member in basing their deci-
sion on who to elect in the
September 5, 2006 primary,"
he said.
"Even with the tremen-
dous progress we have made
in the recent years, I believe
there is still room for im-
provement throughout the
Walton County School Sys-
tem. Our elected officials
should be held to the highest
standards. Administrators,
teachers and staff (both in-
structional and non-instruc-
tional) need to be held ac-
countable for their actions,
rewarded fairly for a job well
done and treated as profes-
sionals. In addition, we need
to require students to adhere
to school policies and we need
to deal promptly and justly
with those who do not wish
to be a part of the learning
process," Laird said.
Laird added, "Each stu-
dent in every school in Wal-
ton County is entitled to an
equal opportunity at a qual-


ity education. We
ensure that all school
ate within a sensil
manageable system:

voritism toward any s

Walton-DeFuniak Library closed to replace floor coverings


Patrons of the Walton-De-
Funiak Library on Circle
Drive in DeFuniak Springs
will soon see a new look in
their library. The 1985 addi-
tion to the historic building
will be getting new carpet
and tile to replace the worn
floor coverings and enhance
the interior appearance. The
historic front part of the
building will retain the origi-
nal heart pine floor that has

welcomed library users since
1886.
Installation will require
the closure of the library for
the last two weeks of July,
from July 17 to July 28. This'
is necessary because the
books and shelving will have
to be moved during the in-
stallation and will not be ac-
cessible for public use.
The Coastal Branch Li-
brary in south Walton,


Freeport Branch Library,
and Gladys Milton Memorial
Library in Flowersview will
remain open for their normal
operating hours during this
time.
Books checked out before
the closure period may be re-
turned at one of these loca-
tions or at the book drop in
front of the Walton-DeFu-
niak Library.
The Bookmobile will also


be used to provide limited
services in front of the Wal-
ton-DeFuniak Library when
not out on its normal stops
around the county.
The staff encourages li-
brary users to plan accord-
ingly for this temporary clo-
sure, and look forward to re-
opening on Saturday, July 29
at 9 a.m. Library patrons
may call 892-3624 or 835-

EDITOR'S COMMENT


By RON KELLEY


Independence Day in the Springs


The flags billowed majestically in the breeze, America, The
Beautiful seemed to issue from every radio. Children and
parents alike were decked out in red, white and blue colors
as people prepared for another sweet slice of true Ameri-
cana, a Fourth of July celebration in a small Southern town.
Here in DeFuniak Springs, the parade, the festivities and
fireworks went off without a hitch. The DeFuniak Springs
Business and Professional Association (DBPA) pulled off an-
other major event and it appeared that fun was had by all.
The parade had award-winning floats, beauty queens,
children, classic cars, golf carts, bicycles and beautiful
horses. There were also plenty of firetrucks and police and
sheriff's patrol cars, with sirens squealing and horns blow-
ing.
The fireworks display, under the supervision of the
DFSFD, was even more dazzling than usual and the
evening's entertainment, The Sawmill Band, was extremely
well-received.
All in all, it was a delightful Fourth of July celebration in





Editor:
The City of DeFuniak Springs would like to thank resi-
dents and business owners for complying with the volun-
tary water conservation request. Due to the continued dry
weather conditions, the City of DeFuniak Springs' water
system is operating'at higher than normal pumping rates.
To make sure the system's pumps and equipment are not
overworked and to be prepared if the dry conditions con-
tinue, we are asking residents and businesses on the water
system to use smart water conservation practices on wa-
tering lawns and washing vehicles.
We 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 addresses.
We would also ask residents to stop outdoor watering
from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. This is our period of peak water de-
mand. Dependent rainfall and water usage the city may
impose mandatory restrictions in the future. We are asking
residents at this time to voluntarily conserve until we get
some rain.

true small-town tradition.
Now, as I sit here at my desk, with the memory of fire-
works exploding above Lake DeFuniak, like the vision of
"the bombs bursting in air" that drove Francis Scott Key to
write the words to our National Anthem, I recall the words
of one of this nation's truest patriots, Patrick Henry.
On March 23, 1775, he said something that is as true then
as it is now. He said, "Gentlemen may cry, peace, peace-
but there is no peace. The war is actually begun. The next
gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the
clash of resounding arms.
"Our brethren are already in the field. Why stand we here
idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have?
Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the
price, of chains and slavery?
Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others
may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"
That's the spirit of liberty and freedom. That's the spirit
of Independence Day.





Editor,
I read your comment in a recent paper. And you feel the
same as I do. When anyone does not feel that they honor
the flag of this country, I feel that they should leave the
country. Old glory flies as a beacon of freedom for anyone
who loves freedom.
I am an eighty-six year Floridian and I and my two sons
have always stood when the flag was honored in the service
and out.
Enclosed, Mr. Kelley, are two items; one a poem, the other
a commentary on the flag. I think they speak for themselves.
Maybe you should send them to the judge. It might remind
him as to the country who made him a judge, and the young
people who have died for it.
Only last Wednesday, we had a flag ceremony here at Delta
Health Care where I live now. Many people here stood up
when the flag was raised. I am one of the young ones.
Included was the poem, 'The Name of Old Glory' by James
Whitcomb Riley, and a copy of comedian Red Skelton's es-
say on the Pledge of Allegiance.

Editor:
What we say or do here in this rather insignificant county
in Florida and the U.S. fails to affect the powers that be in
the' country. For that matter, the same goes for most of the
more thain 3,000 other counties in this country.
But immigration affects us all in one way or another. If I
had been forced to vote for Bush or Kerry, I would have voted
for Bush even though he ranted in numerous speeches that
Iraq had WMO's and none were, found, Fortunately, there
was a third-party candidate that got my vote.
Bush was wrong about WMS in Iraq and is wrong about
immigration. In the Senate, which supports him, Bush and
a majority of Republican Senators are fond of saying: "We
are a nation of immigrants." Well that is bull on its face. If
one is born here, he is not an immigrant. Even the Ameri-
can Indians, whose ancient ancestors are said to have
crossed the Bering Sea to what is now Alaska, and over thou-
sands of years populated North and South America, are im-
migrants according to the "we are a nation of immigrants"
definitions.
The federal government has miserable failed to control
the southern border. For many years following the war with
Mexico (1846-47) there was little need for it. A lot changed
in the next hundred or so years, however, during which the
Mexican population "exploded", and apparently continues
to do so, resulting is more unemployment. So the surplus
comes north. The trickles becomes a flood, which only be-
came public knowledge recently.
According to current government propaganda the illegal
aliens only take jobs that Americans won't do, which is bull.
The current federal government sorely needs a credibility
check. It is risky to take anything it says as fact. The facts
are a more like immigration will overwhelm public services
and a continuous chronic need for housing and medical care.
Wow! What a grand future awaits! How long before the U.S.
becomes as populated, overpopulated are India, China and
Mexico?

Dear Editor:

Bruce Collier's front-page story about Scott Brannon and
his troubles with the Florida Election's Commission (FEC)
left me wondering what the other two people mentioned in
the story thought about all of that. I always thought it
was standard news reporting practice to get all sides to such
an important story before printing it. There was no indica-
tion that there were attempts to contact Mr. Davidson or
Mr. Rees and that they were "unavailable for comment" as
you news folks tend to say. It would have been informative
to hear them speak for themselves rather than have it done
for them by Commissioner Brannon. Failure to get both sides
of any issue is generally considered to be bad form and
a major no-no in your business but then I realize I'm preach-
ing to the choir.
Speaking of bad form and major no-nos, I was very sur-
prised to read your spirited defense of Mr. Brannon in your
editorial on page four of the same edition. Specifically, I was
dumbfounded by the line in that editorial that says "Not that
you would known (sic) that by reading the headlines or sto-
ries in some other, less reputable newspapers." "Less repu-
table newspapers" is strong stuff. I'm not sure exactly whom
you were referring to but I'll'bet they didn't like that. Most
of us were taught not to speak badly of our competitors but
you make the rules at your paper and can do it your way. I
just wish it weren't so, especially in light of the major jour-
nalism mistakes made on your own front page, one-sided,
"news" article. Or was it an op-ed piece mistakenly placed
on the front page?
I do agree with one very important statement you made
in your editorial. You correctly said, "This is the kind of re-
porting that gives all news media a black eye." Amenr, Mr.
Editor, Amen.,
Bill Wright
Seagrove Beach, Florida
EDITOR's NOTE:

The issues covered in story, "Brannon campaign finance
controversy" (6/29) in the Herald, did not involve Commis-
sioner Lane Rees or Guy Davidson. The charge by the Florida
Elections Commission (FEC) regarding Brannon's report-
ing of two invoices from two area television stations were
between the FEC and Brannon, which is what was reported.
The opinion of anyone not a spokesperson for the FEC or
not charged in Brannon's specific case would have been ir-
relevant. *
The editorial did not defend Commissioner Brannon's ac-
tions or position. It detailed the actual charges by the FEC
and the fact that Brannon's guilt or innocence had not yet
been determined, despite other media reports to the con-
trary.
Finally, it is common for one media outlet to chastise an-
other or to report on its mistakes. Recent notable examples
include the New York Times, Newsweek and CBS News, all
of which have come under fire regarding questionable re-
porting, a fact widely reported by other media.



Editor,
We now know what to expect when there's an accident, on
US 331, either between DeFuniak and Freeport or Freeport
and US 98. Several weeks ago there was a bad accident at
Rockhill, just south of DeFuniak on US 331, involving two
Semi's, a CHELCO truck, a pickup, and a van. Thankfully
no one was killed or seriously injured, however, all the cir-
cumstances were there for both. Traffic was held up for over
four hours.
This past Saturday around 5 p.m. it finally happened, the
thing the people of Walton County knew would happen, if
331 were not four-laned soon. Three lives were taken and
four others are in area hospitals in pain and agony, not to
mention what the families and friends of these seven people
are now going through. This time it happened on the cause-
way leading up to the Clyde B. Wells Bridge. Traffic was
held up again for,over four hours. What would have hap-
pened if there had been a Cat. 4 or 5 hurricane bearing down
on the Emerald Coast? Panic and three options. The three
options would have been the Mid Bay Bridge to nowhere,
Fort Walton Beach and Panama City Beach, none of these
are good options in this type of emergency situation..
I've lived in Holmes, Okaloosa and Walton counties all
my life. I knew back when the first condo (Sand Cliffs) was
built in Walton County and was sold out before they were
completed that Walton County would come up woefully short
on infrastructure when it was finally discovered as the last
beach frontier in the state of Florida.
It is apparent to me that Walton County has no politi-
cians in the State or Federal Government with any political
clout. It's.clear that Charlie Clary, Durell Peaden, Jr, Ray
Sansom, Don Brown, Jeff Miller, Mel Martinez, and Bill
Nelson are politically bankrupt, with no power in Tallahas-
see or Washington. If they had the power I feel certain that
US 331 would have been four-laned five years ago, instead
of being the only major North South highway from
Cottondale to Pensacola with no four-laning.
I think it's time we bury'these men's political careers right
next to where they have their heads, buried in the sand,
whether they're Democrats or Republicans.
It's time the voters of Walton County elected some politi-
cians who will look out for all the people of Walton County
and those who wish to visit the beautiful Emerald Coast,
not just those who are politically savy. We need people to
run who are honest and sincere, and I know it's a lot to ask
of a Christian to run for political office, but we need you.
Let's start in 2006.

A concerned citizen and voter of Walton County,
Jimmy Commander

YOUTH AMBASSADORS pose for a photo with Donnie Richardson at his farm. Pic-
tured (I to r) are Richardson, Rachael Jones, Paige Howell, Ashley Garcia, and Teia Fields.


DONNIE RICHARDSON shares information about the latest technology available to
peanut farmers.


Tour of farm taken


Ashley Garcia, Miss DeFu-
niak Springs, and Rachael
Jones, MIss Walton County,
began preparation for the
National Peanut Festival
Pageant in October by taking
a tour of the farm, specifi-
cally, Donnie Richardson's
peanut farm. Richardson, a
member of the Walton School
Board, welcomed the reign-
ing queens, their sister roy-
alty, Teia Fields, Junior Miss
Walton County, and Paige
Howell, Tiny Miss DeFuniak
Springs, and their friends to
his agricultural enterprises
on Hwy. 1087.
Richardson believes it is
crucial that today's youth
become involved in agricul-
ture. After Richardson pre-

students may
register for free
dual enrollment
at OWC
Qualified 10th, 11th, and
12th grade students may en-
roll free of charge in college
classes offered during the fall
term at Okaloosa-Walton
College through Dual En-
rollment, a statewide pro-
gram which provides an ac-
celerated option for
students to take college
classes to earn both high
school and transferable col-
lege credits.
Students who have previ-
ously enrolled for Dual
Enrollment at OWC 'may
register July 18 thru Aug.
20. High School students
who have not previously en-
rolled for Dual Enrollment
may register Aug. 1 to Aug.
20.
Florida statutes provide
certain privileges and rights
to dually enrolled students.
Articulation agreements
with the Okaloosa and Wal-
ton County School Districts
provide the framework for
Dual Enrollment at OWC.
There is.no cost to the stu-
dent or parent since OWC
waives the college tuition
fees and there is no tuition
charge to the school district.
College textbooks are pro-
vided by the district for pub-
lic school students; private or
home school students must
purchase their own text-
books.
Students who participate
in OWC Dual Enrollment are
protected by Florida's com-
mon course numbering sys-
tem and transfer credits
earned are guaranteed to
meet degree requirements at
Florida public universities.
Further, students who go
on to earn an Associate of
Arts degree from OWC are
granted additional guaran-
tees when transferring to the
state university system as
outlined in the Florida Stu-
dent Bill of Rights. The col-
lege credits earned are also
transferable to out-of-state
colleges on the same basis as
credits earned at other
Florida public colleges and
universities.

tion affects the economic fu-
ture of the Florida farmer,
the queens visited his barns
and learned about the cost of
farm machinery and the
chemical expertise required
to have a successful farm.
The lesson ended with a
truck ride to the fields to


learn about the irrigation
system, getting first hand
knowledge of the appearance
of peanut plants at this stage
of growth and a chance to
select a complimentary wa-
termelon from the
Richardson watermelon
fields.


Ashley and Rachael, who
will be given a written exami-
nation and interviewed
orally on peanuts as a part
of the NPF pageant, will be
making a return visit to the
Richardson Farm this au-
tumn to observe the harvest-
ing process.


DOT discourages signs on state right-of-way


The Florida Department of
Transportation remind can-

placed in the right- of- way
on any state or national high-
way. (Chapter 479.11(8).

The right-of-way for a road
or other transportation facil-

road, the road shoulders,

Grimditch charged with DUI manei


By BRUCE COLLIER
Beverly A. Grimditch has
been charged with DUI man-
slaughter, as well as other
DUI and motor vehicle viola-
tions, in the June 15 death of
Milton resident William
Christopher Villar.
Villar was killed when
Grimditch lost control of her
vehicle and crashed through
the roof of the 22-year-old
Milton resident's home.
Grimditch also faces pro-
bation violation charges in
Walton County, where she is
on probation for a 2005 DUI
offense.
State Attorney William
Eddins released an offense


narrative report prepared by
Milton Police Department
(MPD) officer Roger D.
Holley, recounting the inci-
dent.
Grimditch was observed
driving into Milton on Hwy.
90, reportedly weaving "all
over the road." Officers initi-
ated a pursuit, and Grimditch
attempted to elude them,
reaching reported speeds of
65 to 60 mph.
Finally, Grimditch ran
through an intersection, and
her car struck a curb, then a
small embankment, sending
it into the air and through a
privacy fence.
The car then went air-


borne again and struck the
eave of a residence, crashing
into the roof and striking
Villar, who was in bed watch-
ing television.

Officers arrived on the
scene and pulled Grimditch
from her car. The officers no-
ticed Villar's legs "protruding
from under the rear of the
vehicle," buried under debris.
He was reportedly dead on
the scene.
A search of Grimditch's
vehicle found beer bottles and
a bottle of Bloody Mary mix.
Grimditch was trans-
ported to West Florida Hos-
pital, where a blood sample


was taken. A test showed a
blood alcohol level of .166.
The state attorney has
charged Grimditch with flee-
ing and eluding law enforce-
ment officers involving death,
which carries a maximum
sentence of 30 years in state
prison, DUI manslaughter,
carrying a maximum sen-
tence of 15 years in state
prison, DUI second offense,
carrying a maximum of 9
months in county jail, DUI
with property damage, carry-
ing a maximum of 1 year in
county jail, and violation of
driving restrictions, carrying
a maximum of 60 days in
county jail.

rections field can average up
to $30,000 annually depend-
ing on placement.
Shonk noted that the OWC

ignated by the state as the

tions, law enforcement and

Area actor cracking the big time with TV pilots


By BRUCE COLLIER
DeFuniak Springs resi-
dent Bruce Culpepper be-
lieves in keeping more than
one show business iron in the
fire.
A mere three years ago last
month, the 50-something
Georgia native took his first
baby steps into show busi-
ness. Culpepper started with
a role in a production of The
Mouse Trap, at the Imogene
Little Theatre in Milton.
"Before that," he says,
"you'd have to go back to
when I played the Great
Pumpkin at the age of eleven,
in Columbus, Georgia."

Since then, Culpepper's steps
have taken him to the
Pensacola Little Theatre, an-
other show at the Imogene,
three productions at
Okaloosa-Walton College, a
recurring gig with Act 4
Murder's mystery dinner the-
ater, and a number of local,
area, and national commer-
cial television spots.


More recently, Culpepper
snagged a continuing role on
Resource Rangers, an envi-
ronmental-themed series for
young viewers, shown Sat-
urdays on The Learning
Channel (TLC).

He has also done a pilot epi-
sode for Animal Planet, and
has stepped even higher up
on the TV ladder with the
recent completion of a pilot
for The Weather Channel
(TWC), When Weather Meets
History: Operation Eagle
Claw.
The pilot is a dramatiza-
tion of the disastrous effect
of weather, particularly sand-
storms, on the 1980 mission
to rescue 53 American hos-
tages held in Iran.
Operation Eagle Claw was
a joint-services mission car-
ried out by the newly-formed
Delta Force special opera-
tions group. The mission was
a failure, costing the lives of
five Air Force and three Ma-
rine Corps personnel.


The hostages were ulti-
mately freed, but only after
444 days of captivity. Presi-
dent Jimmy Carter's failure
to win re-election in 1980 is
partly attributed to the fail-
ure of Eagle Claw.
The Delta force was com-
manded by Col. Charles
Beckwith. Culpepper plays
Col. James Kyle, an air com-
mander who participated in
the ill-fated mission.
In addition to the script,
Culpepper. studied online
material about Eagle Claw,
and came away with great re-
spect for the man he played,
as well as the other real-life
participants in the mission.
Culpepper got the part
afer responding to a casting
notice posted on Carol's Cur-
tain Call, an online informa-
tion clearinghouse overseen
by Carol Kahn Parker of
Pensacola.
"The notice said it was a
non-paying, job," says
Culpepper, "and I didn't want
'to do it."


Much of the theater, tele-
vision and film work in this
area is for free, or, as the ads
say, "it will look good on your
resume."
Culpepper decided to sub-
mit his photo and resume
anyway, and received a favor-
able response within a few
hours.

"I told them I didn't want
to work for free, and they
said 'how much would you
charge?"'
A price was agreed upon,
and Culpepper went to work
for Towers Productions. The
pilot was filmed in Pensacola
over a period of days, and
Culpepper had a great time,
made contacts, and laid the
groundwork for future
projects with Towers.
When Weather Meets His-
tory: Operation Eagle Claw,
is set to air on TWC in Sep-
tember. If successful, more
programs are planned, all
dealing with the effect of
weather on historical events.


Culpepper has been making
the rounds, thanking a group
of advisors and mentors he
credits with his successes.
They include OWC profes-
sors Armand Coutu and
Clint Mahle, director/actress
Alicia Leonard, Act 4 Murder
producer Paula Hilton, Tow-
ers Productions' producer Liz


and an area journalist/actor.

These people, says
Culpepper, gave him instruc-
tion, inspiration, and advice,
and the ability to keep at it
despite discouragement.'
"None of this would have
happened if it hadn't been for
[those] guys," he says.


Cleveland graduates

basic combat training
Army Pfc. Lakeisha D. Cleveland has graduated from ba-
sic combat training at Fort Jackson, Columbia, S.C. She is
the niece of Henry Beach, of Chaffin Ave., DeFuniak Springs,
FL.
Cleveland is a 2001 graduate of Walton High School, De-
Funiak Springs.

DeFuniak Springs shows its true colors


A driving tour of DeFuniak Springs revealed that some
residents really know how to show their true colors for
Independence Day. Many homes displayed banners,
bunting, flags and ribbons, and provided a spectacle of
color for those passing by on the street. The residents
themselves tended to wear clothes with patriotic designs
and colors, too.
As might be expected, many homes around Circle
Drive were festooned with red, white and blue. Some
had more decorations than others, but most lakeside resi-
dents paid tribute to the celebration. The hundreds of
yellow ribbons tied to trees around the edge of Lakeyard,
a show of support for all American troops, also added to
the colorful display.
_-,,OR


In outlying neighborhoods, there were less decorations
to be found, but they were there. Those scattered displays
served as a reminder that we, the people, as individuals
and as a community, still treasure our freedom and inde-
pendence from tyranny and recognize the importance of
proclaiming it from our porches, balconies and flag poles.
Sir Winston Churchill said, "All the great things are
simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: free-
dom; justice; honor; duty; mercy; hope." They can also be
expressed on a single bolt of cloth, covered with stars and
stripes, waving proudly in the summer breeze.

Padgett reunion weff-attended


The annual Padgett Re-
union was held June 17, at
the Leonia Baptist Church.
The reunion was the 50th an-
nual gathering of the descen-
dants of Elijah Padgett who
settled in NW Holmes
County more than a hundred
and fifty years ago.
The reunion was well at-
tended this year with 110
signing in. The Sandyland
Blue Grass Gospel Band
played and sang several gos-
pel songs with the audience
joining in on some of the
songs. Members of the band
were Doyle Brake, Doug

Thomas Nolin, 92, of DeFu-
niak Springs, Robert C.
Padgett, 91, of Niceville, and
Norma Padgett Hopkins, 90,
of Jacksonville.
One, of the highlights of the
gathering was the singing of
"Age Isn't Really Important"
by a group of Padgett ama-


teurs. The song was dedi-
cated to Dan W. Padgett who
thinks he is getting old at the
age of 79. He has served as
chairman of the reunion for
most of the fifty years.
The youngest person to at-
tend was 8-month old Tinsley
Grace Parker of Brentwood,
TN. She is the great-grand-
daughter of Dan and Polly
Padgett of Westville. The
family that traveled the far-
thest to attend was the Philip
Padgett family of West Palm
Beach, FL.
Near the end of the formal
meeting, the assembly was
delighted to see Charles
Edwin Riddle enter the au-
ditorium. He is the son of E.
Bert and Ethel Padgett
Riddle. He was confined to a
wheelchair, and he is a resi-
dent of the Bonifay Nursing
and Rehab Center.
The assembly was closed
with a prayer by Bill Cotton.

reunion, and thanks for the
food of covered dishes in the
beautiful dining room of the

Bovee publishes book


Life under the Big Top


Jim Bovee or Bovay, de-
pending upon who you ask or,
in this case which book you
are reading, recently gave a
sneak preview of his newly
published book, GADJO to
the DeFuniak Springs Ro-
tary Club. Jim and his wife,
Ricki, moved to DeFuniak
Springs in 1983 and became
very involved with the com-
munity.
They are both former cir-
cus performers and the book
does cover some of that fam-
ily history. According to Jim,
who grew up in Portland, OR,
he was on track as a gymnast
for the Olympics when he
shattered his ankle in 1970.
After that devastating event,
he changed directions and
began his search for a new


career by training for the cir-
cus.
Jim's book is available at
The Bookstore and is the first


in a series that tells the tale
of a young man's life as a
gadjo or "outsider" in the cir-
cus world.


.' Is your future full of
q. questions? Let Jesus fill in
the blanks for you!

just get to Him, so many things in your life would change? Have you
been hurt by so called Christians, and now you won't even go into the
house of God? Do you have so many questions and no answers? There
is a church you can come to and not be judged by what you're wear-
ing or what mistakes you've made. Jesus says to come as you are, not
come when you're perfect. If any of these things apply to you, we

God Who Wars For Us
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC

Whatever you are facing today God is there to win the battle
for you. The devil does not like you or the Church, but we will
always prevail through Christ-listen to this message!
In 2 Chronicles 32:8, it is said- "And the people rested them-
selves upon the words of Hezekiah king of Judah."
What were the words of Hezekiah?
"With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the Lord our God
to help us, and to fight our battles."
How did the people react to these words? "And the people
rested themselves upon the words of Hezekiah king of Judah."
In other words, they leaned'on the strength and power of the
Lord God whom Hezekiah assured them was on their side. They
believed what he said to be true.
"The Anointed Of The War" none other than the Lord
Jesus Himself has a word for you today as you set yourself to
battle the enemy of your soul "Hear, 0 Israel, ye approach
this day unto battle against your enemies: let not your hearts
faint, fear not, and do not tremble, neither be ye terrified because
of them. For the Lord your God is He that goeth with you, to fight
for you against your enemies, to save you."
As the Lord's minister, I am making His words known to you
this day through this message.
What is required is that you "rest" yourself on the Word of
the Lord to you today.
Don't ever forget- "The Lord your God He shall fight for
you; and that cause cannot but be victorious which the Lord of
hosts fights for. If God be for us, who can be against us so as to
prevail? "Let the good subjects and soldiers of Jesus Christ rest
thus upon His word, and boldly say, Since God is for us, who can
be against us?"
Come worship with each Sunday at 9 a.m. Sunday School;
and 10 a.m. worship-don't watch us grow, come and grow with
us.

Supple's golf title a Panhandle rarity


High school golf hasn't
gotten a lot of attention in the
state over the years, but it is
a growing sport that saw its
first state competition for
boys in 1927, and'for girls in
1947.
The Florida High School
Athletic Association now
holds a yearly state golf
tournament that features the
crowning of two high school
team state champions as well
as two individuals in both
girls and boys play.
High school golf currently
has only two classes of com-
petition, as many schools
throughout the state do not
compete in the sport. While
the sport is growing in popu-
larity, and the Florida locale
offers many opportunities to
play, it isn't a sport that at-
tracts a large gallery
at regular season or district
meets, often played on ven-
ues where the competitors
are mixed in with the paying
public.'
Florida high school golf has
some history in the Pan-
handle, however. In fact, the
biggest Panhandle moment
may well belong to DeFuniak
Springs resident Shane
Supple, who captured the
1989 individual golf state
championship with a five-
shot win at the Misty Creek

tion fees set at $20 for indi-
viduals and $200 for teams.


Country Club in Sarasota.
Supple's win is even more
impressive when you con-
sider only one individual
champion was crowned thru
1993. Oh, and he beat David
Duval who was playing for
Jacksonville Episcopal High
School at the time. That's
David Duval, as in 13 PGA
wins on the Tour since
he turned pro in 1993. That
makes for a nice mention in
Walton County lore, as
Supple has the only boys in-
dividual title in the sport for
Walton High, as well as the
,entire Panhandle since 1970.
His two day total of 136(68-
68) is still tied for third best
score in Florida state finals
history.
Only seven male golfers
from the Tallahassee to
Pensacola area can claim in-
dividual golf championships
in the 80-year history of the
sport, of which Supple is one.
Eddie Johnson won the first
boys golf title for the region
in 1950 while playing for Tal-
lahassee Leon. John Berry
scored the region's second
title in 1952 when he also
won while playing at Leon.
Booker Moore became the
third Leon golfer to earn the
title when he won in 1955.
Pensacola High got in on
the action in 1956 and 1957
as Richard Dunlap captured
the title back to back years.
Keep in mind that prior to
1960, all titles were deter-
mined via match play, not
stroke play.
Supple is one of only three
golfers to win a boys state
golf title under stroke play
rules. Pensacola High's Allen
Miller won the 1966 golf title
with a 135(67-68) and
Panama City Bay's James


Chancey won the 1970 title
with a 134(65-69), the lowest
two-day total in boys'
state tournament history.
The state also awards
team golf titles based on the
combined scores of the low-
est totals of four players from
schools that make it through
district and regional compe-
tition to the state tourna-
ment. The top two teams
from each of the eight regions
advance to the state tourney.
The Panhandle has seen only
six team titles handed out in
the region with Pensacola
High gobbling up titles in
1956, 1957 and 1966.
Pensacola Escambia won
the boys' 1963 team title
while Tallahassee Lincoln
captured the 1977 crown.
Gulf Breeze was the last area
squad to capture a title,
though they shared the state
championship with Orlando
Dr. Phillips in 1999.
Girls golf has had limited
success in the Panhandle.
Pensacola Escambia won
four consecutive team titles
from 1962-65 and is the only
school in our region to ever
claim a team girls title.
Niceville has had some re-
cent success, the Eagles fin-
ished as runner-ups in 2001
and 2004.
Individual girls titles
have also been relatively
scarce in the Panhandle.
Brenda Trish won the first
girls title for the Panhandle
in 1961 while playing for
Pensacola Escambia. Robin
Cook captured consecutive
titles for Pace High School in
1994 and 1995. Jennifer
Pandolfi was the last to cap-
ture a title from this region
as the Navarre student won
a playoff to capture the Class

A title in 2001. Pandolfi is
currently starring in the ACC
on the Duke University golf
team.
High school golf is grow-
ing in popularity and it
doesn't hurt that it is a ma-
jor money sport, whether it is
on the pro tour or playing
with the money group at the
local country club.
Local golfers have
struggled to make their mark
on a state level, but the op-
portunity for success is there.
Shane Supple's 1989 title is
proof that public schools can
produce champions, though

Stewart wins Pepsi 400


DeFUNIAK'S SETH STAFFORD waits for a pitch from
R.L. Turner during the 9-10-year-old All-Star game in
Crestview. Stafford's inside the park grand slam led DeFu-
niak to a 6-5win.


Andre Agassi



says farewell


By CHUCK HINSON
Finally, he is seeing a light
at the end of the tunnel. De-
spite a yellow flag flying,
Tony Stewart crossed the line
at the Pepsi 400 race in
Daytona this past weekend,
a winner and breaking his
embarrassing losing streak.
After having a health issue
with his shoulders, he was
ready to jump fences,
barracades, even his own
race car, after pulling ahead
in with two laps to go in the
Saturday race, to win his sec-
ond striaght Pepsi 400.
Stewart led 85 of the 160
laps on Saturday, not as im-
pressive as last year where
he dominated the course and
only let nine laps go by with-
out him being in the fore-
front.
After Jimmie Johnson
bumped Bobby LaBonte with
just 14 laps to go, a yellow
flag was flown and all were
called in for a final pit stop.
With that flag, Stewart fell to
tenth place, but it wouldn't
stay that way for long .
The other drivers watched
with stares as the orange
oD#Mm .

Home Depot, No. 20 car
passed them all on the low
side of the track and regained
his spot, but now moving to
second place. Stewart was
primed and ready to make
his move until the fifth flag
came out, due to a wreck that
was behind him.
It gave Stewart time to re-
group, bask in his lap of
comeback and plot his final
move to take over first place.
When the race started, so did
Stewart's drive for the
winner's circle.
Once he crossed the line, he
jumped out of the vehicle and
performed his traditional
dance of climbing the fence,
grabbed the flag, and then
made his way into the crowds
as if he were stand-surfing.
Not a real smart move,
Stewart found out quickly,
when the crowds wouldn't let
him go back to his car and
security was called in to help
with the fan control.
Track fans said the win re-
ally helped his team, and de-
lighted those of us who have
been following him, even dur-
ing his downtime with a
shoulder injury.
in


Stewart had finishes of
42nd, 25th, third, 28th and
41st since his accident last
year and he dropped from
fourth place in the standings


to seventh.
Kyle Busch finished in sec-
ond place and his brother,
Kurt Busch, rounded up
third place spot.

It seemed just like another
match that Andre Agassi lost
when he gathered all his be-
longings from the bench and
began to head back to the
locker room after falling to
Rafeal Nadal on Saturday at
Wimbledon. But the tennis
icon stopped turned around,
blew a kiss to the crowd and
took one last look at the place
that put him where he is to-
day.
Agassi didn't get the happy,
fairytale ending he was hop-
ing for this past w weekend. In-
stead of sweeping the tourna-
ment of England, he fell
miserablly to this year's
French Open winner, Rafael
Nadal, 7-6, 6-2, 6-4- in the


third round play. But he was
not alone in the eliminaiton
circle as three-time
Wimbledon championVenus
Williams and two-time final-
ists Andy Roddick both lost
on Saturday.
Agassi told fans and re-
porters after his match that
he would always remember
this final tournament and
the tournaments held at
Wimbledon, when he won the
grand slam and Wimbledon
gave him his first jolt of feel-
ing like a champion.
He announced his retire-
ment two weeks ago, after
the French Open, and vowed
that the Wimbledon tourna-
ment, no matter the outcome,
would be his final match.

Beckham


kicks in the


soccer towel


By CHUCK HINSON
It seems that many ath-
letes are waiting to retire af-
ter hitting a bad note, or los-
ing a match, or due to penal-
ties and controversy. If that
was not the case, England's
David Beckham made that
decision at a very emotional
time.
Known for his flamboyant
lifestyle, his playboy image,
his rocker wife and his con-
sistently solid playing on the
soccer field, Beckham,,says he
will step down as Enlgland's
captain after they fell to Por-
tugal in the quarterfinals of
the World Cup in Germany
on Saturday.
With tears in his-eyes and
wearing a suit that looked
more like that of a boarding
school student, he told a
groupof British press as-
sembled in the conference,
room that he would be step-
ping down.
Beckham told the reporters
and his fans that he has lived
his dream and he was ex-
tremely proud to have worn
the arm band and been cap-
tain of one of the greatest
soccer teams on earth. He
also made it very clear that
he wanted to continue to play
for England.


Beckham took over the
captain's chair in 2000 after
Alan Shearer retired from
the European Champion-
ship. He said it was time to
pass on the arm band that
signifies the captain of each
team.
Beckham has been
England's most famous and
celebrated soccer player for
nealry a decade. At 31, he
has been a media favorite
because of his handsome
looks and his pop star wife,
Spice Girl Victoria Adams.
Many said that his popu-
larity had overcome his abil-
ity to play the game that he
loved so much. The couple
has been labeled Britain's
biggest celebrity couple, even
after moving to Spain in
2003.
Liverpool midfielder
Steven Gerrard or Chelsea
defender John Terry are cur-
rently the most likely candi-
dates to take over the posi-
tion. Both are captains for
their Premier Club.
It is not known if Beckham
will return for another sea-
son of soccer, or whether this
will be his final season, as
captain or team member of
England.

Fourth Parade A Blast!


OPPORTUNITIES FOR affordable or workforce housing
have become vc'rylimited in Walton County, particularly south
of the bay, despite W, lton Cwouty Comprehensive Plan goals
calling for mnkinn. this type of housingavailable throughout
the county. Rcccnt ipi 'osl, by two parties, ifsuccessful, may
contribute to the goal of creating affordable housingin south
Walton County.

Amendments for

affordable housing

get favorable vote

By Dotty Nist
Two large scale amendments that may set the stage for
affordable housing projects south of the bay took a step
forward on June 27.
The St. Joe Timberland Company of Delaware and
Kuykendall Partners had applied for land use changes in
connection with proposed affordable housing projects.
While the proposed changes cannot become reality without
state approval, the Walton County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) voted 4-0 in favor of the amendments
at the June 27 regular meeting.A vote on whether or not to
transmit the amendments to the state Department of
Community Affairs will come at a later date.
Several months ago, after authorizing large scale
amendments reclassifying thousands of acres in Walton
County, mainly to higher density residential uses, the state
Department of Conmmunity Affairs had warned that it would
be difficult for the county to justify additional large scale
amendments for residential development, at least in the
absence of certain conditions. A minimum requirement will
be a detailed examination of urban growth strategies and a
needs assessment conducted as part of the state-required
evaluation and appraisal report (EAR). The EAR is required
to be completed by the county by August 1.
Among the state's concerns about the amount of
residential development to come with the large scale
amendments approved earlier this year were urban sprawl
and "the inability to provide urban services and facilities to
maintain these facilities and services at the adopted level of
service."
In view of the warning and the apparent minimal
likelihood of having additional large scale amendments
approved by the state, last winter the commissioners gave
the county planning staff direction to focus on important
area needs, such as affordable housing, for proposed
amendments.
The proposed St. Joe Company amendment, the first large
scale amendment approved by the BCC on June 27, provides
for the reclassification of approximately 39.5 acres located
at the southeastern end of the county, on the north side of
U.S. 98 about 7.5 miles east of the entrance to South Walton
Commerce Park. The proposed reclassification is from large
scale agriculture to coastal center. The change would increase
allowable density up to a possible 12 units per acre. The
developer envisions building 212 affordable housing units
on the property.
Also getting the green light from the BCC on June 27 was
a Large Scale Amendment request by Kuykendall Partners,
L.L.C. and IMARC Partners, Inc. to reclassify approximately
60 acres south of the bay for 687 affordable housing units.
The classification change would be from Neighborhood
Planning Area/Infill and Conservation Residential to Village
Mixed Use. The property is located east of the Chat Holley
Road/U.S. 98 intersection between Nellie Drive and Old
Indian Woman Road.
During the consideration of the item Pat Blackshear,
county growth management director, commented that the
reason for proposing the Village Mixed Use (VMU) category
is for purposes of obtaining the density necessary for an
affordable housing development on the property.
She added that she was not sure the state would approve
the reclassification.
Walton County citizen and realtor David Kramer urged
for some commercial use to be included in accordance with
the village mixed use description in the Walton County
Comprehensive Plan. He advised providing "walkability" in
the community while restricting "double dipping" for
residential and commercial uses that could result in excessive
denr, it \
Blackshear commented that it would be easier and
preferable to propose the property to be classified' mply as
"high density" if such a land use category existed in the
comprehensive plan.
Village mixed use has traditionally been used mainly on
main roadway corridors. Community leader Anita Page noted
that, if VMU is to be expanded outside the main corridors,

Timpoochee Trail move


step forward, two steps


By Leah Stratmann
Each time it appears the
Timpoochee Trail is getting
smoother for users of the 18
and one-half mile multi-
purpose trail adjacent to CR-
30A, another immovable
object crops up hindering
travel for the users. After
months of complaints and
visits to county officials, most
of the major repairs have
been made to the trails and
a maintenance firm has been
hired to remove vegetative
hindrances to path users and
maintain the grassy areas
around the path.
The most recent assault
on the trail's users is a
buttery at Alys Beach
protruding into the shared
use path: "The existence of an
unsafe, immovable object
protruding into the shared
use path violates every code
of safety for such paths,"
commented Dan McClary, a
member of the Friends of the
Timpoochee Trail and a
regular monitor of the trail's
conditions.
McClary cites the Florida


Bicycle Facilities Planning
and Design Handbook which
states, "the minimum safe
distance from objects is four
feet of clearance from trees,
poles, walls, fences,
guardrails or lateral
obstructions." In an email to
members of the planning
board and the county
attorney, McClary said:
"The Friends would be
happy to ride all the shared
use paths in South Walton on
bicycles with you and point
out areas where your
planners and engineers
continue to approve new
developments that violate
this Florida
standard. Furthermore,
please look at the pictures
attached to this email and
you'll find the path
approaches within about four
feet of CR-30A because of the
flawed design of the path and
the butteries. I have asked
on three occasions if the
butteries and path were built
according to the approved
plan, yet no one at Alys
Beach or Walton County will


answer that question.
"In addition, we suggest
the county review the right
of way agreement. That
agreement states the county
may remove any or all
improvements at any time
with or without notice to
developer. The developer
doesn't want to respond to
my query regarding the
buttery wall. Due to the
inherent safety hazard that
currently exists, we request
the county require the
developer to remove the wall
a safe distance of four feet
from the path, or re-route the
path around all the
improvements, or remove the
buttery wall immediately.
Does the county want to be
jointly liable with Alys Beach
for the unsafe condition that
exists? I hope not."
Users of ihe path fear for
the safety of themselves and
other path users. In the
process of developing
subdivisions, cutouts are
taken from the path and
often left unrepaired for
months at a time. Sometimes


s one


back

the repairs themselves are
unsafe. McClary said, Alys
Beach removed the fire
hydrants after the Friends df
the Timpoochee Trail pointed
out this unsafe condition, but
they don't want to address
the concrete wall. "I can't
believe that cutouts, sand
and gravel covering the path,
equipment parked on the
path and walls built within
the path are in the best

interests of the health, safety
and welfare of its citizens,"
he said.
"In summary, the users of
the path have waited for
almost four months since the
cutouts at the west buttery
turn were first made by Alys
Beach. And yet, the holes are
still un-repaired," said
McClary. "Alys Beach did not
initiate one safety measure
without prodding from our
group, nor did Walton County
enforcement personnel g~t
involved until the Friends
pointed out all the unsafe
conditions." (These cutouts

Two Miramar Beach resi-
dents were injured in a colli-
sion with a truck in Okaloosa

levard on July 2. Three other
vehicles were also involved,
but their drivers were unin-
jured.
Florida Highway Patrol

Charles Holt, 81, and Emily
Holt, 74, were stopped at a
red light in the southbound
right turn lane at the inter-
section of Sandestin Boule-
vard and Hwy. 98.

A second vehicle, driven by
Harold Ferguson, 23, of Fort
Walton Beach, was traveling
westbound in the center
through lane of Hwy. 98, ap-
proaching the Sandestin Bou-
levard intersection.
Three other vehicles,
driven by William Grant, 45,
of Tulsa, OK; Mark Gibbons,
38, of Mandeville, LA; and


Sandra Barron, 49, of
Hattiesburg, MS, were all
stopped in the eastbound left
turn lane of Hwy. 98.
Holt attempted to enter
the westbound left through
lane, traveling into the path
of Ferguson.
The front end of Ferguson's
vehicle struck the left rear of
Holt's vehicle. Holt's vehicle
rotated counterclockwise and
continued traveling west-
ward across the westbound
left through lane.
Holt struck each of the
three vehicles in the east-
bound lane.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD THURSDAY, JULY 6, 2006










THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JULY 6, 2006


They came, they
saw, they say they'll
be back. Another
busy Fourth of July
for tourism in and
around the Emerald
Coast.

Despite an national news
interview conducted with
Ken Pridgen, Walton
County's chairman of the
county commissioners, that
tourism in Walton County is
hurting due to various
weather events, the beaches,
and roads, were still packed.
In the Friday morning in-
terview, Pridgen gave the re-
cent deaths, hurricanes and
riptides as a reason that tour-
ism has seen a sharp de-
crease in the area. It was
down considerably from two
years ago, but officials are
hopeful it will take an up-
swing in the next couple of
years.
You could say that, with
the threats of five hurricanes
last year and Hurricane Ivan
in 2004, people were a little
scared to make plans to visit
the Emerald Coast.
Beachgoers are also worried
to enter the waters, due to
the numerous 'shark attacks
over the past few years.
Though it has been an un-
predictable past two or three
years, weather and pest-
wise, the beaches seemed to
be filled this past weekend
and the tourist stops all
boasted long lines.
At several of the events I
attended, it was all about the
celebration of Independence
Day. Flags were flown, patri-
otic ribbons adorned people's
clothes and even the canines
got involved at the South
Walton Fourth of July Pa-
rade. One such canine, a toy
poodle, was proudly wearing
a red, white and blue bikini,
with matching sunglasses.
Okay maybe the owners
are a little too patriotic!


After a long ddeate and
many property managers
waiting to have their say on
the fireworks issue before the
Walton County Commission
last week, the night sky lit up
all along CR-30A, as one re-
sort after another shot hun-
dreds of thousands of dollars
worth of fireworks from 8:30
p.m. until around 10 p.m.
Once again ,the South Wal-
ton Fourth of July Parade
boasted many entries from
the area, as well as many
businesses and several golf
carts and walking entries
who were just down on vaca-
tion. The parade rolled down
CR-30A and ended at Sea-
side.
At Rosemary Beach, Fam-
ily Field returned with activi-
ties, sporting events and
children' activities. More
than 400 attended the two-
hour event that included
sack races, balloon tosses,
hula-hoop competitions, etc.
The event drew about 300
guests and homeowners. The
day concluded at Rosemary
Beach with a community bar-
becue, live entertainment
and a firework display.
Numerous locations all
along the scenic corridor
were lighting up the sky with
a variety of firework demon-
strations and celebrations
centered around Indepen-
dence Day. From ice cream
socials and barbecues., to live
entertainment and parades,
there was something to en-
tice every member of the fam-
ily.
If this past weekend was
any indication of the
summer's traffic flow and
tourism boom along the Em-
erald Coast, we are sure to
have an increase over last
year. Ideally, this trend will
continue and thousands
more visitors from all over
the world will make this area
their vacation destination
and give all of those in the
tourism industry a reason to
celebrate year 'round.


MORE THAN 200 HUNDRED BIKE RIDERS GATH-
ERED on the lawns of Rosemary Beach on Independance
Day morning. They decorated their two-wheelers with flags,
streamers, construction paper, bells and other patriotic items
as they paraded around the community lead by a bagpipe
band. The parade ended with the annual Family Field Day
and barbecue picnic.


THE STEEL DRUM COCONUT BAND returns this weekend to the third Rosemary Beach
West Indies Market. More than 50 fine artists from all over the South will participate in the
weekend event.

STATE OF FLORIDA DEPART-
MENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL
PROTECTION NOTICE OF
INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT
(FLA102440-006-DW1P/NR)

The Department of Environmen-
tal Protection gives notice of its intent
to issue a permit to the City of DeFu-
niak Springs, Post Office Box 685, De-
Funiak Springs, FL 32435 for a per-
mit renewal to operate an existing 1.5
MGD monthly average daily flow
(MADF) permitted capacity conven-
tional, plug flow domestic wastewa-
ter treatment facility (WWTF). The
wastewater treatment facility is com-
posed of two (2) parallel treatment
trains each with a design capacity of
0.75 MGD operating in the extended
aeration mode. The wastewater treat-
ment facility consists of pretreatment
(screening and grit removal), biologi-
cal treatment, secondary clarification,
disinfection, belt filter press, digestion
of residuals and residuals dewatering
on drying beds.

In addition, the City has requested
the Department to allow expansion of
the sprayfield by activating Zones 1
& 4. Zones 1 & 4 were previously per-
mitted as inactive. Upon completion
of construction (activation of Zones 1
& 4) of the sprayfield irrigation site,
the reuse flow limitation will increase
from 0.75 MGD annual average daily
flow (AADF) to 1.125 MGD AADF. A
wet-weather storage with a volume of
4.54 MG is provided. An approved
Agricultural Use Plan will be used for
landspreading domestic waste residu-
als.

This permitting action is the issu-
ance of a wastewater permit renewal
and substantial modification to the
Part II restricted access reclaimed
water reuse capacity by activating
Zones 1 & 4.

The WWTF facility is located at
latitude: 300 43 43 N, longitude 860
06 33 W at the Intersectionr:of Cook.
and Fourth Street, DeFuniak Springs,
FL 32460 in Walton County. The
WWFT reuse facility is located at lati-
tude: 300 47 42 N, longitude 860 08
18 W off Cat Island Road. The
WWFT reclaimed Water'wilr Continue'
to be reused on Part II restricted ac-
cess sprayfield irrigation sites.

The Department has permitting ju-
risdiction under Sections 403.087,
403.088 and 403.0885, Florida Stat-
utes and Florida Administrative Code
Rules 62-4; 62-600, 62-601, 62-610,
62-620, 62-640, and 62-699. The
project is not exempt from permitting
procedures. The Department has de-
termined that a wastewater permit is
required for the proposed work.

The intent to issue and application
file are available for public inspection
during normal business hours, 8:00
a.rrrto 5:00 p.m., Monday through Fri-
day, except for legal holidays, at
Northwest District Office, Florida Dept.
of Environmental Protection, 160 Gov-
ernmental Center, Room 302, Pensa-
cola, FL 32502-5794.

The Department will issue the per-
mit with the attached conditions in-
less a timely petition of an adminis-
trative hearing is filed under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes,
within fourteen, days of receipt of no-
tice. The.procedures for petitioning for
a hearing are set forth below.

A person whose substantial inter-
ests are affected by the Department s

120.57, Florida Statutes. The petition
must contain the information set forth
below and must be filed (received by
the clerk) in the Office of General
Counsel of the Department at 3900

tion 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-
3000.

Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida
Administrative Code, a person may
request enlargement of the time for
filing a petition for an administrative
hearing. The request must be filed
(received by the clerk) in the Office of
the General Counsel before the end
of the time period for filing a petition
for an administrative hearing.

Petitions filed by any persons
other than those entitled to written
notice under Section 120.60(3),
Florida Statutes, must be filled within
fourteen days of publication of the

Florida Statutes, however, any person
who has asked the Department for no-
tice of agency action may file a peti-
tion within fourteen days of receipt of
such notice, regardless of the date of
publication.

The petitioner shall mail a copy of
the petition to the applicant at the ad-
dress indicated above at the time of
filing. The failure of any person to file
a petition within fourteen days of re-
ceipt of notice shall constitute a waiver
df that person s right to request an ad-
ministrative determination (hearing)
under Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
Florida Statues. Any subsequent in-
tervention (in a proceeding initiated by


another party) will be only at the dis-
cretion of the presiding officer upon
the filing of a motion in compliance
with Rule 28-106.205, Florida Admin-
istrative Code.

A petition that disputes the mate-
rial facts on which the Department s
action is based must contain.the fol-
lowing information:


(a) The name, address, and tele-
phone number of each petitioner; the
name, address,-and telephone num-
ber of the petitioner s representative,
if any; the Department permit identifi-
cation number and the county in which
the subject matter or activity is lo-
cated;
(b) A statement of how and when
each petitioner received notice of the
Department action;
(c) A statement of how each
petitioners substantial interests are

(d) A statement of all disputed is-
sues of material fact. If there are
none, the petition must so indicate;
(e) A statement of facts that the pe-
titioner contends warrant reversal or
modification of the Department action;
(f) A concise statement of the ulti-
mate facts alleged, as well as the rules
and. statutes which entitle the peti-
tioner to relief; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought
by petitioner, stating precisely the ac-
tion that the petitioner wants the De-
partment to take.

Because the administrative hear-
ing process is designed to formulate
final agency action, the filing of a pe-
tition means that the Depart-ment s fi-
nal action may be different from the
position taken by it in this notice. Per-
sons whose substantial interests will
be affected by any such final decision
of the Department have the right to
petition to become a party to the pro-
ceeding, in accordance with the re-
quirements set forth above.

Mediation under Section 120.573,
Florida Statutes, is not available for
this proceeding.

Forgery suspect...



Do you know



this woman?


Emerald Coast Crime
Stoppers will pay a cash re-
ward to an anonymous caller
who helps The Okaloosa
County Sheriff's Office iden-
tify a female- suspect who
used a fraudulent check to
purchase diamond earrings
at a Destin jewelry store. On
Saturday, May 6, between
the hours of 5:00 and 6:00
p.m., a white female entered
the Seychelles Jewelry Store
and wrote a fraudulent check
to purchase diamond ear-
rings totaling almost
$5,000.00. A photograph of
the suspect may be viewed at
wwwaeniea rs

Anybody with information
about this incident should
contact Investigator
Samantha Schill at (850)
609-2000 or could possibly


become eligible for a cash re-
ward by contacting Emerald
Coast Crime Stoppers at 863-
TIPS 863-8477, or toll-free at
1-888-654-TIPS. Crime Stop-
pers callers are never re-
quired to reveal their identity
nor testify in court. A code
number system is used to pay
cash rewards without com-
promising the tipster's iden-
tity.
Crime Stoppers pays cash
rewards of up to $1,000 for
information that helps solve
crimes, or leads to the loca-
tion of wanted fugitives, ille-
gal drugs, or recovery of sto-
len property. Crime Stoppers
is a non-profit, community
organization; it is not a gov-
ernment program or law en-
forcement agency, and no
taxpayer dollars are used in
its reward fund.

presentation to the Board of

workers making them was

"We are happy to be your
'eyes and ears' out there-
but we expect you to hold
developers accountable to the
agreements they've made,
and we expect Walton
County government to look
out for the best interest of
[the] health, safety and
welfare of its citizens. We
asked the BCC during our
March 11 presentation for
Walton County to adopt a
standard for the shared use
path."
McClary is hopeful things
are about to improve. He and
other members of the
Friends group will
accompany Ryan Douglass
from the public works
department on July 6 and the
maintenance contractor for
the trail. The plan is to ride
the entire length of the trails
on bicycles and ATVs to point
out the maintenance issues
as well as any further safety
issues.

as in this case, that it would
be advisable to develop
guidelines for the
commercial uses that are
part of the classification.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows asked if a
"reverter clause" would be
attached to the approval in
case the affordable housing
project does not become a
reality.
Blackshear did not answer
in the affirmative but
observed that the planning
department has several
months to work on issues
such as this.
On July 25 the BCC is
scheduled to consider an
amendment to the county
Future Land Use Element
Policy "to clarify location and
policies applicable to" VMU
