Walton County budget


matching growth


By Leah Stratmann
As Walton County grows,
so do the monetary needs of
the myriad departments
tasked with keeping the
peace, fixing the roads and
providing for recreation. This
week, the county
commissioners will be
looking at a draft of the
proposed budget for fiscal
year 2007, which is $15.2
billion dollars.
Finance director Bill
Imfeld and his staff are
working furiously to put
together the final numbers to
present to the county
commissioners on July 13.
The two departments asking
for the largest increase are
the sheriffs department and
the fire department.
Imfeld said, "A number of
departments stayed the
same. The commission said
priorities were roads and
bridges and public safety, as
well as parks and recreation
as well as growth
management. Those will be
the principal areas that
receive the bulk of
enhancements. There's
another nuance this year. In
the 2005 legislative session,
the Legislature adopted
Senate Bill 360, requiring
counties and cities
throughout the state to


provide enhanced
infrastructure in areas of
growth where the growth is
impacting the ability to
provide roads, bridges,
schools, recreation 1and
safety. Our calculations are
that Walton County will be
impacted to the tune of about
$2 million."
The sheriff's department
has requested a budget of
$19,328,623. These funds
will be used to staff the new
jail, as well as add 27
additional personnel.
According to Imfeld, the
increase is needed to
enhance public safety. "He is
matching the growth of the
county, plus he must staff the
new jail," he noted.
Last year the county
commissioners signed off on
a six-year plan to increase
personnel within the fire
department. The request for
2007 was higher than the
2006 budget by almost $2
million dollars. However, the
recommendation of the
finance office cut the number
down from $3,368,072 to
$3,192,844, suggesting an
increase of $1,740,913 and
noting that the Paxton,
United and Tri-Village
Volunteer Fire Departments
were all incorporated into the
budget during 2006. The


request also calls for
additional personnel, a
vehicle for the fire marshal,
three laptop computers and
two sets of extrication
equipment.
Imfeld said the numbers
currently being used are
preliminary and based on the
projection by the property
appraiser on June 1 of $15.2
billion. "Before July 15 there
will be a final number. This
is a growing county, so I see
the number going up," he
said. Imfeld also noted the
tax collector gets three
percent of all tax monies
collected to cover the cost of
collection. Further, the state
requires all counties to
deduct five percent because
discounts are given to
taxpayers who pay early. If a
taxpayer pays his bill in
November, they receive a
four percent discount. The
discount is reduced one
percent each month through
February.
At this time, the finance
office is not recommending
an increase in the millage
rate, which currently stands
at 4.3099 or $4.31 cents for
every thousand dollars of a
property's appraised value.
"If budgeted money is not
spent, it is returned to the
treasury. If a department


overspends their budget,
they can be held personally
liable for the overage by the
state. We go to great pains to
make sure everyone spends
right at or less than their
budget, so there is no
consequence for the county or
its citizens," Imfeld said.
One item in the budget
that may be of interest to
citizens is $300,000 in the
general fund for minor
capital improvements. The
money is being earmarked
for the proposed senior life
center, although it is unclear
at this time exactly what
form this will take.
The request for the
allocation was made by
county administrator Ronnie
Bell who said, "Originally, I
requested that the $300,00
be placed in the proposed
budget for the commission's
consideration. The
committee has asked county
staff to look at three options.
One option would be to
renovate the existing
building, another option
would be to renovate the
existing building and add a
2,000-foot addition and the
final option is to construct a
stand-alone 4,000 square foot
building. At this time; our

highlights of the recent leg-

missioners discussed
progress in their respective
districts.
Brown reiterated many of
the legislative accomplish-
ments that he listed in a re-
cent interview with the Her-

Brown closed with an ob-
servation about the high
price of building a com-
pletely new bridge in place of

manded by the Department
of Environmental Protection.
Brown estimated that the


cost could be $700 million.

The impact of changes at
Eglin Air Force Base
on DeFuniak Springs was of
issue at Monday
night's meeting of the
DeFuniak Springs City
Council.
Greg Scoville of the
DeFuniak Springs Building
and Planning Department
received from Okaloosa
County a request for
DeFuniak's participation in
a joint land use study
program (JLUS) for Eglin.
This is in preparation for the
Department of Defense's
Base Realignment and
Closure program (BRAC)
which is expected to bring
some 11,000. employees and
their families to Eglin.
Councilman Don Harrison
expressed some concern
about the JLUS program.
His concern, he said, was
that DeFuniak Springs was
being asked to give up
growth without gaining jobs
or commerce from the
BRAC program. Almost none
of Eglin's money, he said,
comes to Walton County.
Addressing Hqrrison's
concerns, Scoville said
that participation in the the
JLUS program may
allow DeFuniak Springs to
have more influence in the
future. Scoville said that of
greater concern was
the potential effect on
aircraft operations in
DeFuniak Springs.
The council voted, to
authorize Scoville to prepare
a resolution for involvement
in the study program.
In another agenda item,
the council voted to formalize
membership of an Eglin
representative to
the DeFuniak Springs
Planning Board. This
representative would be a
non-voting member and
wouldn't attend meetings
unless there was an issue
that would involve Eglin.
Ann Robinson of the
Florida Chautauqua
Center requested use of the
Lakeyard for a Civil
War reenactment to be done


during the Chautauqua
Assembly next February.
The reenactment,
Robinson said, is scheduled
for Friday, Saturday, and
Sunday, February 9 through
11. Three firings are:
scheduled for each day.
Two pieces of property
that were recently
annexed into the city of
DeFuniak Springs are now
on their way to a change in
zoning. Ordinances that
would change the zoning of
the properties had their first
reading on Monday.
The first to be considered
was 248 Bob Sikes Road.
If approved, this property on
the north side of Bob
Sikes Road would become C-
2 commercial property.
The other area is located
on the west side of
Juniper Lake Road. The
property owner, Lakewood
Development LLC, has
requested a change to R-1
residential.
The city's planning board
has recommended
approving both changes. The
public hearing date for both
is scheduled for August 14.x
An agreement with VMS.
Inc. for the maintenance
of the right of way and
median south of Interstat,
10 in DeFuniak Springs wad
renewed. VMS subcontract
this work to the Walto
County ARC.
In closing comment;
Mayor Harold Carpenter
mentioned the July 2$
meeting of the Board of
Cemetery Trustees. This
meeting is usually held at t
p.m. on the third Tuesday of
each quarter. This meeting
however, has been moved to
the fourth Tuesday of the
quarter.
Councilman Roy McLeod
encouraged help to rebuild
the Chautauqua buildings
auditorium. Having this kind
of facility in town, he said,
will allow larger events to be
held in DeFuniak Springs.

Walton
Democrats host
candidates
Walton County Democrats
kicked off their political sea-
son, July 2, with an old-fash-
ioned ice cream social at the
DeFuniak Springs Commu-
nity Center. Featuring mu-
sic by the Dixie Dads, the
event introduced Ray
Padgett, candidate for Super-
visor of Elections, to party
supporters.
Padgett, a computer expert
and well-known county resi-
dent, outlined three innova-
tive ideas for improving the
voting and election process in
Walton County.
First, a computer voting
system that gives the voter a
receipt-used to verify that a
vote has been recorded and
counted correctly. Second, a
system that verifies the legal
voting status of every voter.
No more voting in Walton
County and in another state.
Third, an instant run-off vot-
ing system that makes costly
run-off elections obsolete.
Many other counties already
use this up-to-date system.
In addition to Padgett,
Democrats heard candidate
Joe Roberts, running for
Congressional Seat District
One, and a spokesman for
Florida Senator Rod Smith,
a Democratic candidate for
Florida Governor. All candi-
dates will appear on the Sept.
5 primary election ballot.

School Board talks dollars and sense


By PATRICK CASEY
The hot topic of conversa-
tion of the The Walton County
School Board is a proposed
memorandum to city plan-
ners and county officials stat-
ing the impact that proposed
developments in the county
could have on area school fa-
cilities. The memo, which in
its original form informed the
city or county officials of costs
likely associated with addi-
tional students being added
into the school system, was
pared down to include only
the district multipliers in the
different regions of Walton
County as well as a cost for
adding more students to ex-
isting schools or for adding
more students via the con-
struction of new schools.
Board member Mark Davis
was not thrilled with sending
a letter to officials at all, as
the concurrency plan that
would allow school boards to
levy impact fees and grant or
deny project developments is


not a point of law as of right
now, and will likely not be
implemented until 2008, as-
suming it is signed into law.
"Do we really need to be send-
ing letters asking for money
or land when this
concurrency issue is still on
the drawing board? The idea
of asking developers to con-
tribute money or set aside
land for county schools with
a monetary figure attached
seems a little presumptious.
If the Department of Educa-
tion multipliers are wrong, or
change, would we have to give
the donation back? I am just
not real comfortable that we
need to be sending any letters
right now."
Board member Darrell
Barnhill also questioned
whether the school board
should be sending out letters
with impact dollar values at-
tached. He suggested an ab-
breviated letter with just the
current facts would be more
in line with his way of think-
ing. The board approved the


abbreviated letter after much
debate by a 3-2 margin with
Davis and Mildred Wilkerson
voting against sending the
abbreviated letter.
Bill Laird and Mildred
Wilkerson were chosen to
serve on the County Value
Adjustment Board and Tom
Blackshear will represent the
board at Planning Commis-
sion meetings.
The board also announced
that in the near future, all
school .
board policies will bQ posted
online via the district's
website,
saving costs on the printing
of the large document as well
as being available for the
general public at the click of
a computer mouse. The dis-
trict has been working on a
definitive policy manual over-
* haul that will streamline poli-
cies throughout the district at
all schools. The policy
concurrency will help close
loopholes that may have ex-


isted in individual school
handbooks. The document,
which still must be reviewed
and approved by board mem-


bers, should be available
online in the fall.
The next regularly sched-
uled meeting of the Walton


County School Board will be
held on Monday, July 17, at 5
p.m. at the Tivoli Administra-
tive Complex.


Liberty Fire District news


By Robert King, PIO for
Liberty Fire District
What had been a relatively
quiet 4th of July turned cha-
otic after the parade and fire-
works when folks went home
to get some rest and sleep
before arising for work on
Wednesday.
At approximately 10:56
p.m. on July 4, 2006, a call
was answered in EOC Dis-
patch that said there was a
possible brush fire off of Hwy.
331 N on Martin Road. Lib-
erty Fire District was dis-
patched at 10:59 and the first
firefighter was on scene at
11:02 p.m. The firefighter,
John Dunham, sized up the
scene and called in a struc-
ture fire.

Upon his arrival at the
scene at Kelly Street off of
Martin Road, it initially ap-
peared to be a fire behind a
single-wide mobile home. It
became apparent that a sec-
ond structure behind the
mobile home was fully en-
gulfed with flames shooting
up into a large pine tree be-
tween the two dwellings. He
requested additional support
from Mossy Head District.
Within a few minutes,
more than a dozen
firefighters from Liberty Fire
District were on scene. The
fire was initially attacked
using water from Attack 7,
the fast attack apparatus,
and was quickly joined by
Engine 7 as the main
firefighting unit with Tanker
7 supplying 3000 gallons of
water. Apparatus and per-
sonnel from Mossy Head ar-
rived on scene for backup
support, as did Battalion 1.

As the firefighters arrived
on scene, Chief Tony Roy, in-
cident commander, quickly
set up relief teams for those
that initially began fighting
the fire. Support personnel
assisted firefighters to get
into their gear, got additional
equipment for the firefight-
ers, and from the Rehab Unit
supplied re-hydration to
those actively engaged in
fighting the fire. Due to the
uncertainty of the origin of
the fire, Chief Roy asked dis-
patch to send a state fire
marshal to the scene to inves-
tigate.

While fighting the fire in
the east end of the structure,
a canine was found in the ru-
ins that had succumbed to
the smoke and fire. Finding
of fire marshall cause un-


determined.
As the units were breaking
down the final mop-up equip-
ment another call came from
Dispatch about an MVA in
the 6000 block of Hwy. 90 on
the western edge of Liberty
District. It was a car vs. wan-
dering horse on roadway.
A Black Hyundai sedan
driven by a 20+ year old fe-
male from Mary Esther, FL
hit a black horse on Hwy. 90
W in the area of Spice Apple
Farms. The horse was a full
grown one and was appar-
ently wandering down the
highway. The automobile
was headed west at the time
of the impact. During impact
with the animal, which ap-
parently slid across the hood,
it. smashed the,wiridshield,
and proceeded to rip off the
entire roof of the vehicle into
an accordion of steel. The ve-
hicle continued traveling and
came to rest approximately
300 feet after leaving the
roadway and going through
a fence.
The driver had to be extri-
cated from the vehicle by
members of Walton County,
Fire Rescue stationed at
Mossy Head with personnel


from Liberty Fire District
assisting on scene.
Once extricated and placed
in an ambulance, the driver
was transported to DeFuniak
Springs Airport, where mem-
bers of DFS Fire Department
had set up an LZ for Gulf
Flight out of Twin Cities Hos-
pital. The patient was flown
to West Florida Hospital in
Pensacola.
Hwy. 90 West was closed to
total traffic for the better
part of an hour. The highway
was reopened at 2:34 a.m. af-
ter cleaning up all the debris.

EDITOR'S COMMENT



In the Good Ole Summertime


By RON KELLEY

Here we are in Florida, in mid-July. Hot? Even the trees
are sweating. Still, I'd rather deal with summer heat than
winter snow. I'm not alone. Millions are coming to Florida
every year. Thousands are expected to land in Walton
County, too.
The landscape is changing. Long term residents have
watched in amazement as south Walton has been trans-
formed from a quiet, undiscovered weekend getaway spot
for locals into a thriving, pulsing mecca of shops, condos
and homes for residents, rental homes for tourists and more
than a few breathtaking mansions for incognito stars and
other notables.
It's all so different from the days of my youth. I frequently
have occasion to drive around the county from Paxton to
Sandestin and Inlet Beach and I haven't seen a sandlot
baseball game in years. Whatever happened to that kind of
thing? I suppose kids don't take the time or energy to get up
a game among the neighborhood kids anymore.
That might be a good thing, though. So spoiled to air-con-
ditioning have we become that some kids might soon pass
out from the heat. Besides, they can stay indoors and play
baseball on their Gameboy or X-Box and never move any-
thing but their fingers. Much healthier, I'm sure.
Not that we adults are any better. We spend too much
time in front of the television that is, when we can tear
ourselves away from the computer.
I don't see many kids riding bikes either. In fact, I see
more adults on bikes than youngsters. Go figure.
Television is no escape. The Honeymooners, I Love Lucy,
The Ed Sullivan Show, Bonanza and a host of other shows
have passed into history, leaving us with a glut of things
misnamed as 'reality shows.' These programs prove that
Americans will watch absolutely anything if it's on the tube.
They should all be combined so that we could have one
show where couples try to survive on a desert island, are
then forced to race across the island, finding clues that will
tell them how to compete with an Iron Chef (whatever that
is), pause to vote off other couples, then plan their Bridezilla


weddings with help from a stern English nanny and a crazy
Italian woman named Gotti, and somewhere along the way,
dance with former stars and sing their way to a recording
contract while being insulted and vilified by a moronic host,
whose only claim to fame is that he can insult people better
than Don Rickles. Later, they could appear on Good Morn-
ing, America and the Today Show, before selling their story
to the National Enquirer.
Even the 'regular' programming is becoming increasingly
strange. We have police shows. We have forensic shows. We
have police forensic shows. We have police forensic shows
about people who are missing. We have police forensic shows
about people who are missing because they are dead, ex-
cept to the psychics, who figure out a way to solve the crime
and put their souls to rest, all in an hour.
Are you with me, so far?
Wouldn't it be nice to spend just one more summer going
barefoot, playing sandlot baseball and sharing a sno-cone
with a friend? Wouldn't it be great to sit on the back porch
and eat a big, red slice of watermelon without a care in the
world because school doesn't start again until after Labor
Day? Remember when bliss was a day at the Miracle Strip
Amusement Park in Panama City?
Wouldn't it be fine to spend a few afternoons swimming
or fishing down at the lake or maybe along the river? Then
there were those sunburned excursions to the beach, when
a person could spend the day on the shore and not see more
than a dozen people all day. Remember the way the snow-
white sand used to squeak when you walked on it?
Wouldn't it be fun to play I Spy, Simon Says, tag, or hide-
and-seek with the neighborhood gang, again? How nice it
would be to be able to go downtown Saturday afternoon and
plunk down a dollar to see a good double-feature, maybe

Fistful of Dollars and The Return of The Mole People.
I think it would be worth giving up a million dollars to
enjoy all those things again. Of course, I shouldn't say that
too loudly, else some funny little bald-headed fellow might
suddenly appear and walk up to me and ask me that fated
question.
"Deal...or no deal?"


Editor,
How about ordinary daily heroes??? The ones that no one
talks about.
Recently I was in the Wal-Mart parking lot and there was
a young woman who was distressed. She could hear the
sounds of a cat meowing from a car. I stopped to listen and
you could hear the cries of a cat. We looked in the car and
saw no cat and then determined the sound was coming from
under the car. The young woman got down on the hot, dirty
pavement and found the cat was stuck under the car be-
tween the gas tank and the frame. The woman became fran-
tic because she could see the cat, touch the cat, but could
not get it out. By this time we determined it was a kitten.
A young man came along and asked if he could help, we
had a small crowd gathered around us. The young man got
down on the hot, dirty pavement and managed after a length
of time to free the kitten. I don't think he even got a thank-
you because everyone was checking the smoky grey kitten
out to make sure it was not injured or hurt in anyway. Then
the problem what to do with the kitten, turn it loose, some-
one take it home?
. The young woman stepped up to the plate again, she got
the license number of the car told her kids to take the kit-
ten to her car and get it some water and she would go in and
page the owners of the car to see if it was their kitten. When
I told her I might be able to get it into a no-kill shelter she
said no, she would take it home before she would do that.
The young woman, the young man, no one thanked them.
They just decided to do what was right. I am so thankful
that we have people like them. Thanks, guys.

Paxton Town Council members speak on the issues


By BRUCE COLLIER
The five members of the
Paxton Town Council, Bobby
Kemp, Tommy Mathis, Ann
Sexton, Joe Melton, and
Jenice Armstrong, consider
themselves fortunate for sev-
eral reasons.
The first is where they live.
All express satisfaction at liv-
ing in Paxton, which they
consider a "great family
place."
The second is each other.
All find working with their
fellow council members a
pleasure, and one member
was especially proud of the
council's ability to disagree
without resentment, and to
keep their disagreements "at
the meetings."
The council holds its regu-
lar business i .n i.in- on the
first Tuesday of each month,
at the Paxton Town Hall.
Business is often con-
ducted in an hour or less,
though Mathis recalled that
some meetings have gone
"past ten o'clock."
Kemp and Mathis were
interviewed at the Paxton
Fire Station, where Kemp
works as an emergency medi-
cal technician. A retired pe-
can grower, Mathis has
served both as fire chief and
as mayor of Paxton.
"Some people still call me
'chief,'" said Mathis.
Kemp can't recall the ex-
act date he began serving as
a councilman, but estimated
he's been at it "a pretty good
while."
Both Kemp and Mathis
believe that the most impor-
tant single issue for Paxton
is expansion and improve-
ment of the water system.
Though water quality ap-
pears to be good, low water
pressure is a problem in more
remote areas of the commu-
nity. More lines are needed,
and a new well is planned.
The current system of
lines cannot accommodate
growth, which is coming,
though slowly.
Mathis recalled being told
over 10 years ago that Pax-
ton would be among the last
places in Walton County to
feel the effect of growth, and
that it has taken that long for
it to come.
Paxton has experienced an
increase in population, along
with residential develop-
ments, and both Kemp and
Mathis welcome "managed
growth."
"We could use a little help
with the tax base," said
Mathis.
Paxton grew up around the
Paxton Lumber Company,


and several lumber concerns
have operated in the area. A
sewing factory that produced
shirts was also located in the
town.
Those businesses are gone.
Kemp and Mathis admit
that there has not been a
great push to go out and at-
tract some industry, which
would help with the tax base
and make budget time less of
a struggle.
"We don't have the popu-
lation for a labor-intensive
industry," said Mathis.
Both councilmen are in fa-
vor of "orderly growth," and
agree that Paxton needs
something to keep its young
people here.
"[The town] has a lot of old,
retired people," added Kemp.
Ann Sexton's day jobs con-
sist of driving a school bus,
substitute teaching, and
babysitting her grandchil-
dren. She has served on the
town council for four years.
Sexton grew up in nearby
New Harmony, moving to
Paxton when she married her
husband, who has lived in


Paxton most of his life.
Sexton also considers the
water system, including the
new well, to be the foremost
issue immediately affecting
the town. Digging is set to
begin on a new well in Sep-
tember of this year.
Sexton also noted an in-
crease in school enrollment,
the possible development of a
new residential subdivision
in the area, and efforts to re-


open a subdivision on
Webster Lane.
Sexton appreciates the
need for affordable housing,
a hot topic in south Walton
County, and for increased
child care facilities for par-
ents who have to travel from
Paxton to DeFuniak Springs,
Freeport, Crestview, and Fort
Walton Beach to work.
"There's such a need for it,"
she said.

DeFuniak man booked


for 2005 DUI manslaughter


By BRUCE COLLIER
Deputies of Walton County
Sheriff's Office (WCSO) have
arrested and booked a DeFu-
niak Springs resident in con-
nection with-a fatal accident
that took place in December
of 2005.
A Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) media release stated
that James F. Zink, 41, of 498
Lakewood Drive in DeFuniak


Springs, was arrested on
July 11 and booked into Wal-
ton County Jail on a charge
of DUI manslaughter.
According to FHP investi-
gator Tpr. R.A. Noiseux and
homicide investigator Cpl. M.
Hulion, Zink was driving his
truck south on Hwy. 331, 1.7
miles north of Freeport on
December 13, 2005. Zink al-
legedly lost control and


struck a northbound vehicle.
The driver and sole occu-
pant of the northbound ve-
hicle vehicle was Brian C.
Falcon, 21, of 638 Park Av-
enue #8, in Tallahassee.
Falcon reportedly died at
the scene. Zink was taken to


Sacred Heart Hospital in

ries.

evidence that Zink may have
been under the influence of
drugs at the time of the acci-
dent.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JULY 13, 2006


Bronson announces changes to pest control rules


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson is
announcing that a set of new
rules has gone into effect that
provide improved protection
for consumers who contract
with pest control companies
for termite service.
All contracts issued by pest
control companies for termite
control must now clearly tell
consumers if the contracts
cover subterranean termites,
drywood termites, or both. If
they don't cover formosan
termites, a particularly form
of subterranean termite, the
company has to clearly state
that.

"The average homeowner
may not understand that
there are differences in the
types of termites that can
invade their homes as well as
differences in the kinds of
protections that address each
insect," Bronson said. "We

have found that many people
do not realize they are not
protected against one or the
other until their home is
damaged and it is too late."
Another important change
that goes into effect immedi-
ately is that companies that
perform only "spot" treat-
ments post that information
on treatment stickers in the
structure. Existing homes
may be treated prior to being
sold, especially when pre-sale
inspections show some ter-
mite activity. Sellers may opt
for a less expensive spot
treatment rather than a full
treatment. Until now the
treatment sticker did not
have to specify that it was a
"spot" treatment.
"This is especially impor-
tant for home buyers,"
Bronson said. "Buyers of ex-
isting homes may be told that
a house has been treated be-
fore they buy it, but not in-
formed the treatment was

Preliminary figures from
the Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) show that 31 people
lost their lives on Florida
roads during the holiday driv-
ing period, June 30 July 4.
That figure reflects accidents
investigated by the FHP.
During the same period,
troopers charged 198 people
with DUI, issued 8,424 cita-
tions for speeding, 1,457 for

citations, and assisted 4,109
motorists onr the state's high-

Nearly all contracts have
limitations and exclusions
under which treatment or
repair does not have to be
done, for example if there is
a plumbing leak. Prior to this
rule change, a company could
be aware of a defect, collect
renewals for several years,
and then deny retreatment
or repairs when they became

Other statistics contained
in the preliminary report
show that the 31 deaths oc-
curred in 30 separate
crashes, and that 23 of those
deaths (75 percent) occurred
during the hours of darkness.

Alcohol was a factor in 11
of the fatal crashes (37 per-
cent), and 52 percent of those

panies have a year to change
their contracts to reflect
these requirements.
"The practices these rules
require are already common
to all good pest control com-

loopholes and not protecting

BUDGET

FROM FRONT


construction management
office is trying to develop an
estimate to renovate the
existing facility.
"The $300,000 amount
was an estimate to be utilized
for budget purposes and
would be the approximate
cost to construct the 4,000
square foot building, if that
was the option
chosen. During the budget
process is when we place
items in the budget for the
commission's consideration,
but that does not mean that
the commission will leave
these type items in the
budget: The other reason we
do this is that if the
commission does approve to
move forward with this
project during the fiscal year,
then the funds will be
available to move forward
with the project instead of
waiting to the next budget
year or having to utilize
reserve funds to start a
project.
"The commission will
have the final say if this item
is left in the budget or
removed from the budget, but
we did place the funding in


the budget for their
consideration," said Bell.
Imfeld's office has
recommended the money be
set aside even though the
shape the senior center will
take is incomplete at this
time. "The budget year is
based on an Oct. 1 to Sept. 30
time frame. It is unclear
whether or not the building
that is proposed for the senior
center use will be vacant by
Sept. 30, 2007; therefore no
separate funds are
earmarked in this budget.
However, that doesn't mean
that Rick Millard's
construction crew can't work
on it should it become vacant
before then. His crew would
be used for gutting and some
initial construction. Any
major rehab work would have
to be budgeted for the
following year or come back
to the BCC and have a public
hearing to move money from
general fund reserves," he
said.
One of the largest
departments in the county is
planning and development.
Across the board the finance
office made recommendations


more people concerned and
active in this area."
Joe Melton is semi-retired,
working part-time in DeFu-
niak Springs, An Alabama
native, Melton moved to Pax-
ton in 1970. He is serving his
second term on the council.
Melton's prime concern is
getting industry and jobs to
Paxton, so people won't have
to travel to other towns every
day just to earn a living.
An industry that could
employ even 25 or 30,people,
said Melton, "would be a
start."
Melton estimated that
some 70 percent of the popu-
lation of Paxton is retired on
a fixed income, .leaving the.
young families having to go
out of town for work.
As for what kind of indus-
try or business he would pre-
fer, Melton said "it. actually
wouldn't matter to me.
"I'm all for growth. Any
kind of growth. I believe all
[the council] would be for the
growth of Paxton."
Melton agrees with
Sexton's assessment of oppor-
tunities for Paxton's young
people. His three sons live,
and work in Texas, Alabama,
and DeFuniak Springs.
"What can they do? If
there'd been good-payingjobs
[in Paxton] they'd have
stayed."
Melton loves the peace
and quiet and family atmo-
sphere of Paxton, but would
willingly trade a little quiet
for some increased prosperity.
An industry that could
employ 35 50 people would
be a good thing, he said, and-
go a long way toward retain-
ing the town's youth.
"We might be able to keep
them, if we had something to
offer."
Jenice Armstrong's day job
is postmaster of Paxton, a
contract post office located
next .to the town hall.
Armstrong is serving the oc-
casional customer, and keep-
ing an eye on workmen in-
stalling a new air conditioner
in the small building.
A member of the town
council for two years,
Armstrong believes that the
new water system, funded by
a grant for which council is
applying, is the most impor-
tant item of business before
the council.
A lifelong resident of Pax-
ton, Armstrong recalls some
of the former businesses in
town, including the lumber
companies and the sewing
factory, where she worked at
one time making shirts.
Armstrong would also like
to see some new industry,
even something as small as
a fast-food restaurant, make
its home in Paxton.
"High school graduates
stay here if they go to
Okaloosa-Walton College
[OWC]," she said, adding that
OWC's status as a four-year
college may help to keep even


more students here.
Armstrong expressed
amazement at the rapid
growth of business and de-
velopments in south Walton
County, but is not anxious to
see "that kind of group" in
Paxton.
Pointing to the town's ma-
jority of retired citizens,
Armstrong commented that
the council's recent decision
to raise water rates should
not affect many of them over-
much, since many are on a
flat-system.
The town budget is not dif-
ficult to put together, she
said.
"When I was the [town]
clerk,'7' she .said, "I did jt
mostly by myself."


smaller than requested.
Overall, the planning and
development department
asked for $8,095,064, which
included increasing the
number of full time
employees from 71 to 82. The
finance office recommended
increasing the number of
employees to 78 with a
suggested budget of
7,036,650. It should be noted
that the planning
department is broken down
into several divisions,
including code enforcement,
environmental-resources and
engineering. A request was
made for an additional code
enforcement officer, an
additional plan review
engineer, two administrative
assistants, a development
order inspector, a secretary


SAFETY
by Walton County.
He brought the matter up
for discussion at the July 11
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners meet-
ing, urging for a quick solu-
tion to the problem.
County Commission Chair
Scott Brannon said he had
also received complaints
about disorderly groups and
alcohol on the property.
Brannon said these factors
have been destructive to the
atmosphere of the facility and
are making families wanting
to relax there feel "uncomfort-
able."
Brannon said it is his un-
derstanding that this has
been a weekend rather than
a weekday problem.
The park, an approxi-
mately 160-acre property lo-
cated five miles north of Red
Bay, is a nationally recog-
nized spot for cave divers.
Owned by the state, it is un-
der lease to Walton County
and is open to the public dur-
ing daylight hours for diving,
boat launching, fishing and
swimming. The spring flows
to the Choctawhatchee River.
Cuchens suggested that the
county hire an off-duty law
enforcement officer for secu-
rity at Morrison Springs.
Brannon said he had spo-
ken to Walton County Sher-
iff Ralph Johnson about the
situation at the park and that


and a planner to be shared
with the building
department, plus desks and
computers for the new
personnel.
Public works requested
funds of $41,460,063. The
finance department is
recommending a budget of
$42,975,289.

The finance office also
cut the emergency operations
center request. They asked
for $126,533 but the finance
office is recommending a
budget of $120,601. This
figure includes 50 percent of
the cost of a plasma TV to be
shared with emergency trust,
as well as the purchase of a
forklift and improvements to
the building and the parking
lot.


FROM FRONT,
deputies had been monitoring
it from time to time. However,
since problems were appar-
ently continuing, he agreed
that Cuchens' suggestion
would be a "logical step."
District 2 Commissioner
Ken Pridgen was concerned.
about the plan to hire a secu-
rity officer, since taxpayers
were already paying the sher-
iff to deal with matters of this
nature.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows agreed. She
was worried that the county
could be faced hiring security
officers for all the parks if the
commission proceeded in this
direction. However, in view of
the immediate safety con-
cerns she suggested putting
a temporary remedy in place
while continuing to work
with the Sheriffs office on a
more permanent resolution.
District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones moved to autho-
rize county administration to
hire an off-duty officer to be
stationed at the park through
Labor Day for the days and
hours deemed appropriate to
address the situation, while
negotiations with the sheriff
ensued.
Meadows seconded, and the
motion was approved unani-
mously.

FROM FRONT


paving of Pen Williams Road
and Paxton's CR-147, and the
addition to the Walton
County Courthouse.
District 3 commissioner
Larry Jones pointed out resi-
dential development in
Mossy Head, development of
an industrial park, and a do-
nation of land to the Walton
County School District for an
elementary school in Mossy
Head. Jones also mentioned
the Wee Care Park, and the
installation of a light at CR-
1087.
"We serve at your pleasure,
and it is a pleasure to serve
you," said Jones.
Rosier Cuchens spoke
next, for District 4. Among
Cuchens' list of items were
the paving of Bay Loop Road,
development of Portland
Park on Alaqua Road, a park
in the Hammock Bay devel-
opment, completion of the
animal control facility, and


construction of an equestrian

Is county-owned

water/sewer

service in future


for Mossy Head?


By Dotty Nist
The Walton County Board
of County Commissioners has
authorized negotiations for
an agreement aimed at con-
solidated water and sewer
service in Mossy Head and
that may lead to a county-
owned water and sewer util-
ity in the northern Walton
County community.
On July 11, the commis-
sioners voted unanimously to
authorize County Attorney
David Hallman to work with
Mossy Head Water Works
President Tom Terrell to ne-
gotiate terms whereby water
and sewer service would be
provided on an '. flicic nt. re-
gional basis" in the commu-
nity, and W.:,ion County
would obtain the right to ac-
quire the Mossy Head Water
Works at the end of a five to
10 ye* period.
A letter to Terrell from the
county attorney's office sum-
marized the primary aims of
the agreement to be negoti-
ated.
They included an initiation
by the county, either directly
or through a regional author-
ity, of the planning and design
needed to set up sewer ser-
vice in the area of the Mossy
Head Water Works franchise
area, plus sewer service

agreements between the
county and landowners and
developers in the area, in-
cluding reserving sewer ca-
pacity for developments.
In addition, the agreement
would call for Walton County
to assist Mossy Head Water
Works in providing water ser-
vice to areas such as the 20-
acre school site donated by
the county and the Mossy
Head Industrial Park.
Included in the agreement
would be unified billing for
water and sewer by Mossy
Head Water Works.
The agreement would also
provide Walton County with
the right to acquire Mossy
Head Water Works' facilities
and assets five years after the
signing of the agreement. The
county's purchase right
would not be mandatory but
would be applicable from that
time until ten years after the
signing of the agreement.
Upon purchase by the
county, Mossy Head Water
Works would be required to
continue operation in the
same manner as had taken
place prior to the purchase.
Hallman's letter will be
presented to the Mossy Head
Water Works board for their
consideration.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JULY 13, 2006


Foul play ruled out


The Okaloosa County
Sheriff's Office (OCSO) has
ruled out the possibility of
foul play in the death of a
Laurel Hill residentfound
dead in her car on July 10.
Investigators found the
body of Debra Lynn Josey, 42,
of 6255 Will Owens Road, be-
hind the wheel of her car at
around 8 a.m. Monday morn-
ing. The car was sitting just
off of S.R. 85 near the Duke
Field entrance.
An autopsy was performed


on July 11, but did not deter-
mine an official cause of
death.
The Medical Examiner's
office is awaiting the results
of toxicology reports, which
will be available in the next
eight to twelve weeks.
Investigators were ini-
tially suspicious because of
bruises found on Josey's body.
The autopsy revealed that
the bruises were old, and
could not have been a factor
in her death.

Nature Of Meeting

DeFuniak Taekwondo produces world champions


The Korean martial art of TaeKwonDo is alive and well in
DeFuniak Springs. Though that may come as a shock to the
local public, it isn't across the rest of the country where it has
become one of the most popular martial arts in the United States
as well as around the world.
On June 23, the local DeFuniak Springs chapter of the
American Taekwondo Association' participated in the World
Championship competition in Little Rock, Arkansas. Students
Ethan and Sam Williamson competed against other boys from
all over the world in the competition with Ethan taking first
plhce in both forms and sparring to earn the undefeated world
championship title for his age and rank. Sam placed fifth in the
world for his age and rank. Each student had 12-16 opponents
in their competition ring.
Angel Ratliff took first in weapons and fourth in forms with
Abby Williamson capturing first in weapons, forms and spar-
ring. Rachael Rippon took first in sparring with Garrett Herndl
finishing first in sparring and second in forms. Mike Herndl
had a first place finish in sparring while Glen Williamson fin-
ished third.
Owner and chief instructor Thomas Miller earned a double
state championship in the state of Alabama for forms and spar-
ring. Miller has been the chief instructor for four years for the
DeFuniak chapter. He also operates a TaeKwonDo school in
Geneva and has been involved in the martial art for over ten
years.
The school's students also competed for titles in the state of
' "









o -


Florida meet for 2005-06. Ethan Williamson earned
first in forms and sparring while Abby Williamson
finished second in forms, third in sparring and
second in the use of weapons. Rachael Rippon fin-
ished third in forms and second in sparring with
Angel Ratliff garnering a fourth place finish in the
use of weapons. Sam Williamson was fifth in forms
and first in sparring. Nick and Alex Price both fin-
ished second in forms and first in sparring.
TaeKwonDo (also spelled Taekwondo, Taekwon-
Do, or Taegwondo) is the most popular of the
Korean martial arts and is the Korean national sport.
It is also the world's most commonly practiced mar-
tial art and an Olympic sporting event.
In Korean, Tae means "to kick or destroy with the
foot"; Kwon means "fist"; and Do means "way"
or "art". Hence, Taekwondo is loosely translated as
"the art of hand and foot" or "the way of the foot and
the fist." TaeKwonDo's popularity has resulted in the,
divergent evolution of the art. As with many other
martial arts, TaeKwonDo is a combination of com-
bat technique, self-defense, sport, exercise, entertain-
ment, and philosophy.
Although there are great doctrinal and technical
differences among private TaeKwonDo organizations,
the art in general emphasizes kicks thrown from a
mobile stance, using the leg's greater reach and


power to disable the opponent from a distance. In
sparring, turning (roundhouse), 45-degree, front,
axe, and side kicks are most often used; advanced
kicks include jump, spin, skip, and drop kicks, of-
ten in combination. TaeKwonDo training also in-
cludes a comprehensive system of hand strikes and
blocks, but generally does not emphasize
grappling. Its purpose is to not only acquire power
and skill for self-defense, but to perfect character
by teaching courtesy, integrity, perseverance, and
self-control through physical exercise and train-
ing.
Students of TaeKwonDo begin as white belts
and must learn the basic stances, kicks, and blocks
as well as the philosophy behind the white belt
before moving on to the next rank. Each belt color
thereafter has its own philosophy and builds upon
what had been previously learned. In 2006, it is
estimated that the World TaeKwonDo Federation
has over 50 million members in 180 National As-
sociations.
Classes at the DeFuniak Springs TaeKwonDo
are open for all abilities from ages six to adult.
The school is located at 399 Highway 90 East,
across from the Hotel DeFuniak. For more infor-
mation, contact Instructor Thomas Miller at the
Geneva school at (334) 328-9168 or leave a voice
mail at (334) 328-9168.

That maybe if you could just get to Him, so many things in your life
would change? Have you been hurt by so called Christians, and now
you won't even go into the house of God? Do you have so many

THANK YOU

The family of Roger Gandy would like to thank every-
one for their kind expressions of sympathy since the loss
of our loved one.
The visits, phone calls, cards, food, flowers, and memo-
rials made to charities in our dear husband and father's
name meant so much to all of us. We have been over-
whelmed with the love and concern expressed during this
difficult time.



A GREAT RECIPE
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC

Fold two hands together,
And express a dash of sorrow.
Marinate it overnight,
And work on it tomorrow.
Chop one grudge in tiny pieces,
Add several cups of love.
Dredge with a large sized smile,
Mix with the ingredients above.
Dissolve the hate within you,
By doing a good deed.
Cut in and help your friend,
If he/she should be in need.
Stir in laughter, love and kindness,
From the heart it has to come.
Toss with genuine forgiveness,
And give your friends some.
The amount of people served,
Will depend on you.
It can serve the whole wide world.
If you really want it to!
author unknown
Come worship with us each Sunday at 9 a.m., Sunday
School; and 10 a.m., worship-don't watch us grow, come
and grow with us.

Compassion is our passion.

loss is one more day we're proud to be in

toward families and enthusiasm for serving

Little League All-Stars

battling for district titles

The DeFuniak 10-11 year old All-Stars finished second
out of seven teams that took part in the District 1 Little
League competition from June 24-July 5. DeFuniak met R.L.
Turner out of Panama City after posting a pair of opening
round wins, only to fall to the squad 4-2 in a seven inning
contest. DeFuniak came back through the loser's bracket to
face R.L. Turner a second time in the double-elimination tour-
nament, this time capturing a 4-2 win in six innings. The
victory set up a winner-take-all game between the two squads
on July 5.
Unfortunately for the DeFuniak squad, R.L. Turner swung
a hot bat, building a 15-0 lead that turned into a 15-4 vic-
tory. DeFuniak finished with a 4-2 record in the event.

Destin to get powerboat classic


By CHUCK HINSON
It has been in the works for
over a year and this Novem-
ber, powerboats from all over
the nation will descend on
Destin for the Merrick World
Cup Classic. The best
powerboat racers in the
world will be coming to the
waters of the Emerald Coast,
Nov. 5-12.
World champions from
three different racing circuits
including the Offshore Super
Series, the Pacific Offshore
Powerboat Racing Associa-
tion and the Offshore Perfor-


mance Association, will all be
competing for the coveted
crown.
Destin had been selected to
host the event in September
last year, but the race was
canceled due to hurricanes.
The association tried to race
again on the Emerald Coast
in April, but it was canceled
again due to beach
renourishment programs in
progress.
More than 80 boats are ex-
pected to compete on the 9.5
mile course. Racers will top
out with speeds of 180 mph


on the striaightaway of the
course. Between three and 10
boats will compete in each
race.
The Emerald Coast Confer-
ence Center will serve as the
host venue for the event and
headquarters and the Racer's
Village where the the
powerboats will be on display
throughout the week of the
event..
Throughout the week,
various activities have been
scheduled, including a golf
tournament, a 5K/10K run
and other activities.


Mauresmo/Federer win Wimbledon


By CHUCK HINSON
It was a tournament of
goodbyes and redemption as
Wimbledon hosted the big-
gest tournament in tennis.
Roger Federer took home the
men's single cup, while
Angelie Mauresmo took the
championship for the women.
After losing the first set in
the final match for the
women's singles, Mauresmo
settled down, got her nerves
in check, and hit the court in
the second match to dominate
the rest of the series. She
bolted back in the next round
to take care of Justine Henin-
Hardenne, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 in
Saturday's championship fi-
nal.
This was not the first time
that Mauresmo had gotten
the best of Hardenne. In


January at the Australian
Open, she was claimed victor
after Hardenne left the final
game with stomach pains.
Mauresmo never felt like she
rightfully won the tourna-
ment.
This past Saturday, after a
hard-fought battle, she has
the confidence of being a
world champion.
For the men, No. 1 ranked
Roger Federer finally was
able to pluck the thorn from
his side as he took down No.
2 ranked Rafael Nadal in the
final match on Sunday, 6-0,
7-6 (5), 6-7 (2), 6-3. The vic-
tory gave Federer his fourth
consecutive Wimbledon
championship and his eighth
Grand Slam title.
Federer is boasting an im-
pressive record of 55-0 this

Italy takes the
World Cup

By CHUCK HINSON
The Azzuri team eventu-
ally outplayed the French
team in the championship
game of the World Cup this
past Sunday. Italy beat the
French, 5-3 in a shootout af-
ter a 1-1 draw took place due
to France's Zinedine Zidane's
ejection in the the 110th
minute of the farewell game,
due to a head butt he made
to the chest of Italian player
Marco Materazzi.
Despite the drama and the
vicious playing on the part of
both teams, it all came down
to a winning penalty kick
during the final minutes of
the game. Italy had finally
proven to many fans and crit-
ics that it could take advan-
tage of penalty kicks.
The Italians struck hard
and fiercely after the ejection
of French teammate Marco
Materazzi, and never looked
back until the celebration
began just moments later.
Critics, reporters, fans and
even the teams said they had
played sloppily throughout
the match and neither had
much to b e proud of after all
was said and done. Many
contributed to the long-
standing rivalry between
the two teams, while others
said it was just a long, hard-
fought match.
The host country, Ger-
many, finished in third place
after defeating fourth-place
Portugal 3-1 on Saturday.


year when he plays anyone
besides Nadal. The Swedish
tennis star entered Sunday's
championship match with a
1-6 career mark against
Nadal and 0-4 for the season,
when all four losses came in
tournament finals, including
last month's French Open.
This past weekend's vic-
tory puts Federer in a very
elite group. Bjorn Borg, Pete
Sampras and now Federer,
are the only men since World
War I to win the Grand Slam
title, four years in a row.
For the doubles champion-
ship, The Chineses duo Yan
Zi and Zheng Joe won their
second Grand Slam doubles
title of the year when they
beat Virginia Ruano Pascual
of Spain and Paola Suarez of
Argentina, 6-3, 3-6, 6-2.



Lance

Armstrong

drops suits

By CHUCK HINSON
It has been an up and down
battle for Lance Armstrong
in both the media and the
courtroom, but on July 6, he
dropped defamation lawsuits-
in France after winning three
legal battles elsewhere over
doping accusations.
The seven-time Tour de
France champion had told
his French legal team to
drop all pending charges.
One of those suits was
against the authors of LA
Confidential: The Secrets of
Lance Armstrong. The book
accused Armstrong of using
banned substances, which he
has denied.
That case was to go before
a judge in October, but has
been dropped.
Armstrong told reporters
that his life is not about that
anymore and he is ready to
move on.

Gordon gets win, but


even more controversy


By CHUCK HINSON
It wasn't pretty, but it was
a win as Jeff Gordon took
advantage of the turn with
only four laps to go, spun
Matt Kenseth around, and
went on to chalk up his vic-
tory at the Chicagoland
Speedway in Joliet, IL on
Sunday.
The scene turned even ug-
lier when fans littered the
speedway track with trash,
bottles, food containers and
pictures of the race, in pro-
test of Gordon's driving and
his win.


Gordon denied that his win
over Kenseth and the way he
conducted himself on the
track had anything to do
with two's encounter earlier
this year at the Bristol Mo-
tor Speedway.
That race led to a physical
confrontation between the
two, in which Gordon was ac-
cused of shoving Kenseth.
Second-place finisher Jeff
Burton, once a team mate of
Kenseth, did not want to
comment about the race be-
cause he did not see the in-
*cident. After a short review,


he said there would be retri-
bution for Gordon's actions.
After a rocky start,
Kenseth regained his post
and took a strong lead in the
second half of the race. He
seemed destined for his third
victory of the season.
But that would all change
when Gordon tapped
Kenseth's bumper and sent
him spinning, and costing
Kenseth the first-place spot.
Burton finished in second
and Kyle Busch, Kevin
Harvick and Dale Earnhardt
Jr., rounded out the top five.

Panhandle delegation discusses local appropriations


MARTI COLEY, state representative for District 7,
emphasizes the importance of teamwork among the legislative
delegation and local officials. The new representative said
that one of the first things she has learned is that "unless we
all work together, nothing is really going to happen."


By Dotty Nist
The efforts of Walton
County's legislative
delegation during the 2006
session were recognized on
July 7.
At this month's Walton
County Chamber of
Commerce First Friday
Luncheon, Walton County
Board of County.
Commissioners Chair Scott
Brannon announced, with
thanks, that the legislature
had appropriated over $50
million for the county during
the recent session, including
$39.1 million for acquisition
of right-of-way for the four
laning of U.S. 331.
The $39.1 million will be
used to purchase right-of-
way from the north end of the
of the Clyde B. Wells Bridge
to a half mile from State
Road 20.
"You have a commitment
from your delegation that
that will be completed,"
Marti Coley, District 7 state
representative, commented,
regarding the four laning of
the major north-south
corridor and evacuation


route.
Coley was elected to the
District 7 seat last year,
succeeding her husband
David, who died of cancer in
March 2005. Her district
includes a portion of Walton
County, parts of six other
counties and all of Calhoun
and Liberty counties.
The 2006 session was
the tenth and last for District
4 State Senator Charlie
Clary. Clary expressed
thanks for the opportunity to
represent Walton County as
part of his senate district.
Clary expressed high
hopes for the recently created
Committee for a Sustainable
Emerald Coast, which will
examine "where we want to
be within the next 25 years."
"Never underestimate
the value not only of growth
but good growth," echoed Ray
Sansom. Sansom, a former
Okaloosa County
commissioner, now holds the
Florida House District 4 seat,
representing portions of
southern Okaloosa and
Santa Rosa counties.
Sansom noted, that with


approximately 1,200 people
moving to Florida per day,
the state population is
predicted to surpass New
York State within five to 10
years. This is one reason why
the state needs leaders who
are thinking about the future
and not just the next election,
he added.
Sansom commented
that Walton County was one
of the most successful
counties in the 2006
legislative session. .
"You have great
leaders," he said. Sansom
praised the county's
legislative delegation as a
whole and called Coley a
"natural" in her new role as
state representative.
In addition to Clary and
Coley, Walton County is
represented by State Senator
Durell Peaden and State
Representative Don Brown
in the legislature.
All five Walton County
commissioners were present
and each voiced their
appreciation to their
legislators.
,.,. "Everything you do


trickles down to us and helps
us make our constituents
happy," commented District
5 Commissioner Cindy
Meadows.'
In addition to the $39.1
million appropriation to hell
with the widening of U.S. 98;
Walton County received
$1.57 million for the.
resurfacing and widening of
Bob Sikes Road between U.S,;
331 and Eglin Air Force Base.
and $5.1 million for the,
resurfacing of U.S. 98
between the Walton1.
Okaloosa County line andc
Sandestin.
An $8.1 million dollar
appropriation will go tqo
beach nourishment in
Walton County. Another $1.3
million will be available for,
wastewater treatment,
improvements in the
northeast Choctawhatchee
Bay area, $1.5 million fo(
sewer improvements in
south Walton County, an4,
$1.5 million for stormwateri
improvements on Bay Loop
Road in the Freeport area. .

SWFD fills board vacancy


Ad- ,-. AA


By Leah Stratmann
Donna Crawford filled a
vacancy on the board of
commissioners for the South
Walton Fire District at the
regular monthly meeting of
the board on July 10. Five
people had volunteered to fill
the non-paying volunteer
position. Among the
candidates were Thomas
McGee, David Cummings,
Steve Rappaport, Daniel
Marcinkolwski and
Crawford. Crawford is a long
time resident of south Walton
County and a licensed broker
and real estate agent.
The treasurer's report
revealed $5.1 million dollars
in the bank for the district
and the fire chief reported
that the district responded to
462 calls during the month
of June.
For the past couple of
meetings, questions have
arisen about the frequency of
false alarm calls. The
perception was that the


number was high and
perhaps the district needed
to look into creating some
type of special ordinance
regarding the number of calls
the district gets. However,
SWFD Fire Chief Les
Hallman reported that when
the statistics were run for the
top ten alarm calls, "we found
it wasn't as bad as we
thought. The worst offenders
averaged one call per month,"
he said.
Originally, it was,
Commissioner Tom Cooper
who was concerned about the
volume of calls when the
SWFD responded to 60 calls
in April in high-rise
buildings. He questioned if
maybe it wasn't a good idea
to put an ordinance in place
anyway, but said "numbers
don't lie" and it doesn't look
like we need an ordinance at
this time. Hallman said that
often false alarms calls are
due to failed equipment and
the building managers


usually fix the problems as
quickly as possible.
At the May meeting of
SWFD commission, it was
decided to award the contract
to build a new building to
Dalton Brothers
Construction. The new
,building will sit behind the
SWFD building on CR-393
providing the space needed
now and with the capability
of expanding to four stories
in the future at the least cost.
The estimated cost of
construction is $1.5 million
dollars.
Hallman and
Commissioner Ed Wright
were part of the committee
that looked for the requests
for proposals (RFPs) when
the bid went out on the
building. Although Dalton
Brothers offered the high bid,
the commissioners agreed
that using a local builder was
a good idea. However,
Hallman and Wright
reported they now have some


concerns about Dalton
Brothers.
"We met with them and
asked them to draw up a
design 'contract, which is a
simple boilerplate contract.
We met with them on May 11
and gave them a date we
needed the contract by. We
did not get it until June 9,
after the date asked for," he
said. "We did not hear from
them again until June 26. Do
we want to move forward
with them given their lack of
response?" he asked. "How
quickly would they do the
project?"
Commissioner Wright
agreed saying said they
didn't seem interested. "They
were rather blas6 about the
whole thing, not enthusiastic
at all. We feel like they aren't
really interested in doing this
project." Commissioner
Wright made a motion to
proceed with the second
choice candidate, Design
Build, with whom the SWFD


has a good history. The
motion was seconded and
passed by all. It was noted a
design contract should be

Healthy and green living makes sense for everyone


CHANDRA F HARTMAN addresses the crowd at the
healthy and green living workshop.


By Jeffrey Powell
Susanne Morrone,
Chandra Hartman and Ines
Clark are three ladies who
can help you live a better life
through healthy living,
improved diet and
sustainable development.
Each of these speakers made
a presentation at the Coastal
Branch Library on July 7.
The "healthy and green
living" educational workshop
was well-attended and filled
with useful information.

Susanne Morrone is an
author and expert in the field
of natural health. "Health is
in your hands," insists
Morrone. Morrone makes the
point that today's society has
embraced chemicals so
completely that almost
everything is synthetic. More


than 70,000 synthetic
chemicals are in commercial
use and approximately 1,000
are added each year. Less
than 7 percent of these
chemicals are tested for
adverse effects. Pesticides
are also a major concern for
Morrone. According to
Morrone's information
children playing on lawns
sprayed with non-organic
pesticides are four times as
likely to develop cancer.
Morrone asks citizens to
educate themselves and
learn about toxins and how
they can minimize exposure
in their lifestyles.
"We should all try to build
sustainable homes in Walton
County," stressed residential
and commercial designer
Chandra Hartman of cfh
Design Studio. According to


the Brudtland Report, which
was published by an
international group of
experts on the environment
and development,
sustainable development can
be defined as "development
that meets the needs of the
present without
compromising the ability of
future generations to meet
their own needs."
Three billion tons of raw
materials are used for
construction each year,
according to the World Watch
Institute. Common sense
dictates that this trend
cannot continue. Ines Clark
would be ti first to agree.
Clark, a regional
representative of Eco-Smart
Inc., presented several
products and ideas that could
help eliminate the continued


destruction of natural
resources. Geo thermal air-
conditioning, foam sealed
attics and solar water
heaters are just a few of the
suggestions Clark discussed.
The common thread
among these three speaker~
seems to, be the collective
health. of the human being
and the planet we live on.
Humans cannot continue to
abuse the natural resources
we depend upon. Obviously
healthy and green living
makes sense for everyone.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JULY 13, 2006


Florida Scenic
Highway
designation
sought for
CR- 30A
Walton County is looking
for designation of CR-30A as
a Florida Scenic Highway.
The Florida Scenic High-
ways Program was formed by
the Florida Legislature to
heighten awareness of our
State's historical and intrin-
sic resources cultural, his-
torical, archeological, recre-
ational, natural and scenic -
which enhance the overall
traveling experience along
designated highways. Par-
ticipation provides benefits
to the local community in
terms of resource preserva-
tion, enhancement and pro-
tection.
Designation of a Florida
Scenic Highway relies on the
volunteer efforts of local citi-
zens, community leaders,
businesses and non-profit
organizations working
closely with land manage-
ment agencies, local govern-
ments, consultants and the
Florida Department of
Transportation.
Anyone with an interest in
the Scenic 30A roadway and
surrounding south Walton
communities is encouraged
to participate citizens,
civic groups, or businesses.
The Scenic 30A Corridor
Advocacy Group is estab-
lished to help foster commu-
nity support, form strong
partnerships and develop the
necessary documentation to
get the Scenic Highway des-
ignation.
The next Corridor Advo-
cacy Group meeting is Thurs-
day, July 20, at 5 pm at the
Tourist Development Council
office on U.S. 98 at U.S. 331.
Contact Claire Bannerman
in the District 5 Com-
missioner's office at 622-3059
for more information.







Free class

on common

home

defects

offered

to the public

The Emerald Coast Asso-
ciation of Realtors is hosting
a one and a half hour semi-
nar on Common Home De-
fects on July 13, 2006, at the
Association Office from 9:30
- 11:00 at 10 Hollywood Blvd,
SE, Fort Walton Beach.
This seminar will be con-
ducted by one of the local
area's home inspection ser-
vices, and is designed to make
sellers, buyers and Realtors
aware of the potential prob-
lems in homes when buying
or selling a home.
Realtors in this area rou-
tinely recommend that buy-
ers have a home inspector
inspect the home they intend
to buy before closing the sale
to be certain that the prop-
erty has no material defects
that are not easily detectable
except by a professional.
Many sellers also have
their property pre-inspected
prior to offering it for sale to
reduce the risk of a buyer
finding a deal-breaking de-
fect.
This seminar, while in-
tended for professional Real-
tors, should be of interest to
anyone contemplating a pur-


chase, or sale of a property,
or who may already own a
property and have concerns
about the condition of the
property.
The 3300 member Emer-
ald Coast Association of Re-
altors represents Realtors in
both Walton and Okaloosa
Counties, and periodically of-
fers free or low cost classes
and events such as this one
to the public.
There is no charge for the
class, but a courtesy call to
the association at (850) 234-
6145, will ensure that space
is reserved.

OWC's AIDA offers rock-


tragedy in ancient Egypt


By BRUCE COLLIER
The Arts Center Main
Stage at Okaloosa-Walton
College (OWC) rocks like an
Egyptian this weekend with
Aida, a rock-opera tragedy
with music by Elton John and
lyrics by Tim Rice.
Aida was originally pro-
duced on Broadway by
Disney Theatrical Produc-
tions, and the roughly two-
hour piece (lengthened by
one intermission) offers a
variation on the love story
made famous in Giuseppi
Verdi's epic (and longer) 19th
century opera.
Aside from the basic story
line and character names,
however, this is not a "Verdi
for Dummies" version of the
opera. Elton John and Tim
Rice have produced an im-
pressive list of original songs,
blending the story of a forbid-
den love between an Egyp-
tian soldier and a captured
Nubian princess with themes
of war, freedom, and love of
country.
That being said, Aida is
long on spectacle and light on
profundity. The OWC produc-
tion is directed by Clifford
Herron, with musical direc-
tion by Guy Heath and
Carolyn Schlatter, sets by
Clint Mahle, and costumes
coordinated by Armand
Coutu and Linda Corley.
The cast is young, largely
recruited from OWC's the-
ater, music, and dance, de-
partments, as well as local
and area talent. There's a lot
of doubling, especially among
the chorus and dancers, and
the orchestra pit also boasts
a cadre of nine "pit singers,"
unseen but heard, fattening
the sound on the production
numbers.
The story ofAida is simple,


and, for something based on
an Italian opera, pretty
straightforward.
Handsome and heroic Cap-
tain Radames of Egypt,
played by Daryck Monroe,
has just returned from a suc-
cessful campaign of conquest,
pillage, and plunder in
Nubia. Among his spoils is a
young, beautiful Nubian
named Aida, played with one
name by Nielah.
Radames takes her as a
slave, making a gift of her to
his fiance Amneris, daughter
of Pharaoh, played by Erin
Carloni.
Two complications arise.
Radames falls in love with
Aida, and Aida neglects to tell
anyone that she is in fact
Princess Aida, daughter of
the King of Nubia, who has
also been taken prisoner and
is awaiting execution.
Radames must decide be-
tween his duty to marry
Amneris, and his love for
Aida.

Aida must decide between
her love for Radames, and her
duty to dad and country.
Added to the mix are a lot
of Nubian slaves hungering
for deliverance and a treason-
ous plot by Radames' father
Zoser, played by Clint Mahle.
Being opera-inspired, it all
ends badly but lyrically, with
a smidgin of hope and re-
demption.
Clint Mahle's set, Bob and
Christa Whittaker's lighting
and Anthony Borella's sound
design are all in harmony.
These artists have worked
together many times before,
and know each other's moves
like a good jazz ensemble.
Gasp-inducing tech and
costumes have become such
a norm at OWC under this


group, which includes
Armand Coutu, that it can
only be hoped that these guys
are training some equally
adept apprentices to follow in
their footsteps should they
move on.
The quality of the singing
and acting is generally high,
despite the relative inexperi-
ence of many of the perform-
ers.
Nielah, Monroe, and
Carloni have the biggest
tasks as the ill-fated triangle.
Aida is driven by passion and
grief, Radames by pride and
honor and Amneris by hope
and disillusionment.
Each has a strong voice,
and the good judgment to
channel their acting into the
songs, which provide most of
the necessary tools for the
job.
Mahle glides on and .off-
stage as the evil Zoser, rarely
raising his voice and display-
ing a heretofore hidden flair
for singing.
The supporting cast does a
good job of occupying the
huge stage, and the transi-
tions between the numerous
songs and dance numbers are
smoothly handled.
Aida is very much in the
modern style of musicals,
swiftly moving, with minimal
dialogue and emphasis on
songs.
The principals are openly
miked, giving them more the
look of rock singers than ac-
tors, but this is a work by
Captain Fantastic and one-
half of the team that gave us
Jesus Christ as a Superstar.
Aida runs July 12 through
15 at at 7:30 p.m., at the Arts
Center on OWC's Niceville
campus. For more informa-
tion or to reserve tickets, call

Aida comes to the
OWC Performing
Arts Center July 12-
15. Though a Broad-
way musical, it is the
local performers that
are causing all the
commotion.

Tim Rice and Elton John's
musical has had its time on
the big stage on Broadway.
With rave reviews, hundreds
of sold out shows and a story
that has been compared to
Cats and Rent, the produc-
tion has made a name for it-
self worldwide. But now all
the fanfare and the contem-
porary pop/rock styles of the
Broadway masterpiece will
be coming to the Performing
Arts Center at OWC,. July
12-15.
The story is about a forbid-
den love between an Egyp-
tian soldier and an enslaved
princess during a time of un-
rest in the country. The cast
is made up of community ac-
tors and college theater stu-
dents.
More than 40 stage per-
formers, 33 musicians and
singers, and 34 other tech-
nical and support members
make up the large cast and
supporting staff.
Work began on develop-
ment and the organization of
the Broadway musical nearly
10 months ago. This is OWC's
premiere summer theatrical/
musical production. The col-
lege hosts several traveling
concerts, groups and Broad-
way troupes, and is also
world-renowned for its cre-
ative arts studies and their


Ars Gratia Artis: The Artel

Walton County Art
L.ague; The organization is

its 15th annual Fall Festival
taking place Sept. 2 at the
Walton County Farmer's
Market on Hwy. 331. The fee
is $35 for a 10 x 8 space and


performing arts facilities.
Many new faces and sev-
eral familiar faces will ap-
pear inAida. Many have ap-
peared in other OWC shows,
and productions, while oth-
ers are making their debut on
the main stage for Aida.
Some of the past perform-
ers that are returning for the
production, have since moVed
on to perform in New York
productions after getting the
theatrical seed planted at
OWC's PerformingArts Cen-
ter.
It has always been the lo-
cal theater community and
those of the surrounding ar-
eas that seem to steal the
spotlight and cause the ticket
sales to skyrocket.
This production, with both
professional and volunteer
talent could cause another
rebirth and a surge in popu-
larity here in the Florida
Panhandle.
Many of the performers
consider it an honor to take
on such a story. The long-
running production has re-
ceived rave reviews on the
New York stage and five
Tony nominations, inlcuding
Best Original Score.'
Many of the songs in Aida
have been on the top pop
charts as' well as the top bill-
ing list for Broadway plays.
In 1999, LeAnn Rimes and
Elton John performed the
song, "Written In The Stars,"
topping the Billboard charts
for several weeks.
Aida opens July 12 and
runs through July 15 at the
main stage at OWC. For

July 13 Workshop


slated for CR-30A


beach nourishment


By DOTTY NIST
A July 13 workshop will fo-
cus on the history of the ef-
fort to restore eroded beaches
along CR-30A, along with sci-
entific aspects of planning for
beach nourishment.
Brad Pickel, beach manage-
ment coordinator for the
South Walton Tourist Devel-
opment Council, said he
hopes the public will attend,
provide input and ask ques-
tions about the proposal.
Soon after Hurricane Ivan


impacted Walton County's

NOTE: If a person decides to appeal any decision made by the School Board
with respect to any matter considered at such meeting or hearing, such person
will need a record of the proceedings and, for such purpose, such person may
need to ensure that a verbatim record of the proceedings is made, which record
includes the testimony and evidence upon which the appeal is to be based


gineering will also be on hand
with additional scientific and
engineering data collected in
offshore investigations by his
company, plus information on
plans for large-scale restora-
tion work under consider-
ation. Attendees will be able
to have their questions an-
swered directly by these tech-
nical experts.
Pickel said Walton County
is now looking at restoring
approximately 12.9 miles of
beachfront along CR-30A.
The workshop will be another
step in the planning and ap-
proval process for the resto-
ration, which will also require
approval by the Walton
County Board of County
Commission-ers.
Permitting by the state and
federal government, a
lengthy process, will be re-
quired. However, if approved,
the restoration could start by
2008.
The workshop is scheduled
for 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, July
13, in the Azalea Room at the
Baytowne Conference Center

at Sandestin Beach Resort.
