Sheriff relinquishes



operation of jail


"We simply can't run the

Jail without enough staff."


SHERIFF RALPH
JOHNSON


By Dotty Nist
During a recent Walton
County Commission budget
hearing, a letter was pre-
sented by Walton County Ad-
ministrator Ronnie Bell in
which Sheriff Johnson re-
turned the operation of the
county jail to the county com-
mission.
In attendance at that
meeting were the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC),
county staff members and
administrators, members of
the Walton County Taxpay-
ers Association (WCTA), rep-
resentatives of other localor-
ganizations, and interested
members of the public. ,
Bell began the workshop
by moving quickly through


proposed budgets for the
county's clerk of courts, su-
pervisor of elections, prop-
erty appraiser, and tax collec-
tor. Walton County Sheriff
Ralph Johnson's budget was
next on the agenda for dis-
cussion.
When that item came up,
Bell commented briefly that
the county jail would become
the responsibility of the Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners on Jan. 1,
2007 and that he would de-
velop a plan to move forward
with that change.
Bell added that he had
spoken with Sheriff Johnson
and that the sheriff was not
having any "second
thoughts" about his decision
to relinquish the operation of
the jail to the BCC.
While in other neighbor-
ing counties such as
Okaloosa, county jails are
departments under the
county commission with
their own adminis' ratois, in
Walton County the sheriffs
action marks a departure
from the past. No one can
remember a time when the


jail was run by anyone other
than the county sheriff.
Other local governments
such as Bay County hire pri-
vate contractors to operate
their jails.
Although the sheriffs de-
cision came only the day be-
fore Thursday's budget hear-
ing, without explanation, it
had not come as a surprise
to the commissioners when
they gathered for the hear-
ing. Johnson's one-sentence
letter relinquishing "supervi-
sion of Walton County jail to
the Walton County Board of
County Commissioners,"
handed to Bell just the day
before, had quickly been
faxed to the commissioners,
according to Shirl Williams,
assistant county administra-
tor.
Since Johnson was not yet
present, discussion at the
hearing moved on to the pro-
posed budgets of other
county departments and di-
visions and other matters.
When discussion again
turned to the sheriff's
department's proposed bud-
get, Bell explained that


three-fourths of the proposed
amount for operation of the
jail would be moved from the
sheriffs department budget
into the county general fund,
to reflect the portion of the
next fiscal year that the jail
would be the responsibility of
the BCC.
Johnson was present at
this point in the hearing but
his financial officer, Marjorie
Adams, served as spokesper-
son. Adams commented that
some positions that were
listed under corrections (jail
employees) would need to be
moved to the law enforce-
ment category in the sheriffs
budget.
Bill Imfeld, county finance
director, volunteered to work
with the sheriffs department
to "smooth out" any problems
in connection with the tran-
sition.
Bob Hudson of the WCTA
requested that a total "head
count" for law enforcement
and corrections employees be
provided once plans for the
transition had been laid out.
Prior to the decision to re-
linquish the jail, Sheriff
Johnson had proposed the
addition of 27 additional
staff for the new fiscal year,
including 17 to iman the.niail.

that is under construction

woman killed in


SR-83 crash


By Bruce Collier
A 45-year-old DeFuniak
Springs woman was killed on
July 14 when her car was
struck from behind by a
Mack truck on SR-83, 10
miles north of DeFuniak
Springs. Two persons in two
other vehicles were seriously
injured in the same accident.
Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) investigator Cpl. Eric
R. Diaz reported that a Mack
truck was traveling south on
SR-83. The driver of the
truck was Jason Lee Hill, 28,
of Panama City Beach.
.Owing to road work, traf-
fic had slowed to a stop in the
southbound lane. Stopped in
the southbound lane ahead of
Hill was a vehicle driven by
Patricia Newby of DeFuniak
Springs.
Stopped ahead of Newby
was a third vehicle, driven by
Keith Andrews, 58, also of
DeFuniak Springs.
Stopped ahead of Andrews
was a fourth vehicle, driven
by Frankie Kitchens, 52, of
Holt.


According to the FHP re-
port, Hill had driven over the:
crest of a hill and saw that
traffic was stopped. Hill ber

times, "but was unable to doa
so due to his speed."
The report goes on to
state that Hill applied his,

stop. Hill attempted to steer:
into the right lane to go off
onto the west shoulder, but
was unable to do so because
of oncoming northbound
traffic. ';
At this point, Hill's truck
struck Newby's vehicle from'
behind. Newby's vehicle then
struck the rear of Andrewg'
vehicle, which in turn struck
the rear of Kitchens' vehicle'.
Hill's and Newby's vez

Commission denies

animal shelter location


By Leah Stratmann
Neighborhood opposition
and an apparent
contradiction in the county's
land development code has
derailed a request by Walton
County to place an animal
shelter on 20 acres of land
located on Rock Hill Road,
approximately two miles east
of U.S. Hwy 331. The current
designation of the land is
estate residential future land
use.
County planner Brian
Martinez said the project met
the county's requirements.
The plan called for a 15,000
square-foot structure to be
erected on the 20-acre parcel,
leaving approximately 18
acres undisturbed.
Neighbors in the area
were opposed to the plan
based on violation of the code,
noise, odor and traffic at all
hours.
Speaking against the
proposal was area broker
David Kramer who said the
county "couldn't have it both
ways," regarding the land use
designation.
"The ,county's stated
position was that the land
use category estate
residential allows the
kennel/shelter under the
listed allowable uses as 'civic
uses.' However, civic uses as
defined in the land
development code not
provide for this type of use.
Then the county tried to say
that the shelter/kennel was
allowable as a conditional
use provided under estate
residential as 'functional
agriculture related non-
residential. However estate
residential has a special
provision in the land
development code that
states: 'Commercial
developments shall be minor
scale (less than 3,500 square
feet of floor area) and
consistent with the character
of the existing neighborhoods


and businesses. Clearly the
proposed use is over 3500
square feet and it is not
consistent with the
neighborhood and clearly the'
proposed use does not fall
under the listed civic uses.'"
Planning commission
chairman Albert Paris stated
that he was involved in the
sale of this property to the
county and that the
originally intended use had
been a borrow (sand) pit. "I
understand the county's need
for an animal shelter. I
understand the county's
desire to salvage the
investment. However, the
proposed use is not the
'highest and best' use for this
property. Approval and
construction of the shelter/
kennel at this site would
negatively impact
the quality of life and the
property values of the
neighbors and neighborhood.
This proposed use is not an
allowable use under thle
estate residential land use
category," he said.
Kramer said in an email,
"We should look to our county
to always set a good example.
County projects ought to be
held to even a higher
standard than that of the
development community.
What kind of message would
it send to the voters and
taxpayers of Walton County
if government were to take
liberties in the interpretation
of our code ani4
comprehensive plan? I cali
assure you it-would caS
some disparity (sic) on tli.
process that is set up t
protect those rights."

Chairman PAris made i
motion to deny the proposal;
which was seconded by
Commissioner Lawrence and
passed, by all. The proposal
now goes to the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC).

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


ltS ~PERSONAL COMMENTS


EDITOR'S COMMENT


A hot time in



the old town

p. ::, V ~LLLEY

i i': starting. One of my favorite times of the year is elec-
tion time. In Walton County, that usually means a 'hot time
in the old town tonight.' Though it will likely be that again,
too, I'm expecting a somewhat kinder, gentler election sea-
son than two years ago. After all the negative ads in the.
2004 election and the trouble they brought from the Florida
Elections Commission, there should be less negative ads,
locally.
That's a good thing. Candidates never win me over by try-
ing to demonize their competitors. Instead, I want to hear
what a candidate's views are and how they plan to make
things better. Besides, I've never seen a negative ad that
told the whole story. Most play fast and loose with the facts
and only mention the parts that support their claims. Of
course, nasty campaign ads appeal to some people, but in
Walton County, I have seen voters watch two candidates
cover each other with mud and then vote for the one who
stayed out of the fray. I hope candidates take a lesson from
our local history books about negative ad campaigns.
One thing I am glad to see is that people are getting in-
volved. There will be plenty of candidates to choose from
and plenty of issues to discuss. On the street, people are
already talking about candidates and issues. I hope this




Editor,
Higher fuels costs are making it difficult for many to man-
age even the most necessary of trips, like going to and from
work every day. People on already tight budgets are really
feeling the pressure of fuel costs hovering around $3 per
gallon. Calculating the actual cost is not for the weak of
heart. Over the span of one year, at $3 per gallon, the aver-
age person driving a mid-size sedan can put over $85.00 a
month and $1,000 a year in gasoline in their car just for a
30-mile round trip to work (no side trips). When one figures
in routine maintenance, insurance, depreciation, and other
"hidden" costs to drive a car, the annual cost of a 30-mile
round trip to work is closer to $1,500. That's a lot to shell
out just to leave a car sitting in a parking lot for eight hours.
AAA estimates that the average person driving 15,000 miles
per year (total) spends around 52.2 cents per mile to drive.
That's $7,800 (Your Driving Costs 2006, www.aaa.com/pub-
lications).
What many commuters don't know is that they have op-
tions to paying so much at the pump. Ride On commuter
services is available to help people who work in the Florida
Panhandle save money and find solutions to the single-oc-
cupant-vehicle drive to work. The benefits reach far beyond
the commuter's wallet, too.
Providing employees with commuter benefits mean con-
venient and reliable workforce transportation. Benefits in
the workplace include tax savings for the employer and em-
ployee, reduced tardiness, turnover and absenteeism, in-
creased productivity, improved on-site parking conditions,
expanded employee base, more free time and less stress
during the work commute. Employers can also support work-
ers who bike or walk to work. Guaranteed ride home assis-
tance is available in case of an emergency and can pay for a
taxi ride home, if someone gets stranded at work or has to
leave early.
Pooling is perfect for workers who leave their vehicle sit-
ting in a parking lot for the entire shift most every day. It
not only eases the "pain at the pump," but may also help
solve transportation problems for single-car households on
tight budgets. Ride On services are open to workers in Bay,
Calhoun, Escambia, Gulf, Holmes, Okaloosa, Walton and
Washington counties. For more information, call (850) 595-
8910 (Pensacola), (850) 769-9809 (Panama city) or toll-free

means we'll see a nice turnout at the polls. Sometimes, in
non-presidential years, voters don't turn out as well. How-
ever, there are so many important races this year, on the
county level and state level. Florida will be selecting a new
governor to follow Jeb Bush. We'll also be looking at a new
chief financial officer, a very important position. The com-
missioner of agriculture post is also up for grabs.
As always, the DeFuniak Springs Herald and The Beach
Breeze will not be endorsing any candidate in any race, on
any level. As I have stated before, I think that is inappropri-
ate behavior for any newspaper or news media outlet. The
reason is that, after a newspaper has publicly chosen its
candidate, from that point on, I never see another fair word
written about the opposing candidate in that paper.
I don't think our job is to tell you what to think or to delib-
erately allow the news to be slanted in order to achieve some
hidden agenda by the reporter, publisher or corporate CEO.
I believe our job is to report the facts as fairly and even-
handedly as we possibly can and then let you, Faithful
Reader, make up your own mind. I still trust you to do the
right thing.
In the meantime, I urge you to talk with the candidates,
go to the rallies and forums, the meet-and-greet barbecues,
fish fries and coffees. Ask the tough questions and listen
closely to the answers. Make up your own mind. Then go do
that thing that you do so well vote!
See you at the polls.




Editor,
Last Wednesday, after shopping at Wal-Mart, I unloaded
my unperishable items in the trunk of my car, put the store
cart up and headed to Healthmark Regional Medical Center
where I volunteer. After parking my car, I reached for my
purse. I didn't have it. I searched my trunk no purse. I
raced back to Wal-Mart, beseeching God all the way that I
find my purse.
My prayers were answered. Some nice. young man had
found it and turned it into the Customer Service Depart-
ment. He didn't leave his name but I would like to say to
him, "Thank you, thank you, thank you and may God bless
you always."

Editor,
I would like to take this time to thank the DeFuniak
Springs Little League for sponsoring the 11-12 year-old Little
League Baseball Tournament held the last two weeks. Greg
Brack has done a tremendous job on the fields. They were
the envy of every league that came and played.
You have the best playing fields of anyone at this point.
The concession stand had great food and was very reason-
ably priced. The umpires that were used were very profes-
sional and unbiased. There were no problems, games started
on time, everyone had a great time, there was plenty of good
baseball to be enjoyed by everyone. Ellen had everything
very well organized, and as usual, did a great job. Also, if
you missed the young boy who sang "Take me out to the
ballpark," you missed a great performance.
Thanks, once again to DeFuniak Springs Little League
and its board of directors, you represented DeFuniak Springs
and District 1 very well. You should be extremely proud of
your accomplishments.

Editor,
The new police chief asked for a numerous amount of ad-
ditional people to run the department. The Council didn't
give him the amount he asked for, but did give him six extra
men.
Most people that I talk to wonder where he put the addi-
tional help. If the chief would have some of his men watch-
ing the four-way stop signs at 2nd Street and Bay Avenue
and at 11th Street and Live Oak Avenue, they could issue a
book full of citations in one day. Another bad place is 7th
Street at Circle Drive.
The cities of Freeport and Paxton abolished their police
departments a few years ago and contracted with the Sher-
iff Department for enforcement and saved hundreds of thou-
sand dollars. Doing the same to DeFuniak Police Depart-
ment would be a cost-cutting help for the city.

Editor,
As the first residents on our road, my husband put up a
fence in sweltering heat exceeding 100 degrees to prevent
our animals from being a nuisance to anyone else, and to
protect them from the road.
Since then, every time a neighbor has moved in, we've,
had to contend with trash strewn along the perimeter of
our property, stray animals, inconsiderate drivers spinning
tires, and rutting the roads, drunken parties and loud mu-
sic audible over our own TV while our windows are closed
and the AC is running.
Most recently, it's started again. I've said something to
the ATV'ers that they can't be riding on these roads; young
adults who've chosen to blow me off three times, kicking up
dirt, etc. I have respiratory problems.
Add horseback riders coming down here leaving their
manure. No horses reside on our road. We clean up after
dogs why do we have to avoid or track manure into our
property, let alone smell it? And June 11,1 I had to go to the
emergency room for a severe allergic reaction to a horse fly
bite.
Then add the family of cats and older kittens abandoned
at Christmas time, that elude Animal Control. Does won-
ders for me.
Newcomers need to learn the rules and be more courte-
ous.

PAXTON
high by reason of a leak, and
the other a complaint from a
private citizen concerning low
water pressure in her resi-
dence.
The waiver was granted,
with council member Bobby
Kemp asking that the leaks
in the water system be re-
viewed, as well as the "one-
time" waiver policy. Some
grant and bond agreements
for city water systems contain
limitations on the granting of
bill waivers. City attorney
Loriane Bytell agreed to look
into the matter.
The water pressure com-
plaint came from Paxton resi-
dent Kim Bush, who asked
for a psi check of her water
pressure, and speculated on
the effect that nearby Brooks
Farm's filling of its water-
tanks might have on her
water pressure.
The council agreed to the
psi check, and expressed the
hope that the new water sys-
tem to be constructed will
solve such problems. Bytell
agreed to act as contact per-
son for Bush during the in-
vestigation period.
An update on the Paxton
football program showed a
good turnout for registration,
and the use of the town's ball
field for another registration
session was requested.
Also discussed was the
need for additional space for
football end .zones. Council
member Joe Melton pointed
out that the football field's
land as currently staked out
risks bringing the football
field too close to the town's
airfield runway.
A motion was made to shift
the field eastward, thereby
accommodating, space for end
zones while remaining a safe
distance from the runway.
The motion was approved.
A representative of the
Paxton Ruritans presented a
proposal for a monument, to
be placed on the grounds in
front of the town hall. The
proposed monument is to be
inscibed wth the words, "In
loving dedication to our
Ruritan charter members
who turned a community into
the town of Paxton while pav-
ing the way with fellowship,
goodwill, and community ser-
vice."
During discussion, council
member Ann Sexton ex-
pressed a "problem with the
wording."

said. A suggestion that the
words "helped turn," be, inter-
polated satisfied her.
Council member Tommy
Mathis expressed disap-
proval of the monument be-
ing placed on town hall prop-
erty, despite its wording, and
despite the fact that one of
his family is honored on the
monument.
Mathis said he feared this
would lead to a rush of re-
quests by other organiza-
tions to raise their own
monuments on town prop-
erty.
"If you do it for one, you've
got to do it for another," he
said, wondering where all
the other monuments would
be placed.
"We're opening up a can of
worms. You're going to get
feelings hurt. I think it's
wrong, using public property
to celebrate your Ruritans,"
said Mathis.
Sexton moved to approve
the monument, subject to in-
sertion of the.words "helped
turn." The motion was ap-
proved 4 1, Mathis voting
no.
Kemp concluded by sug-
gesting that the council look
into the town's history to find
the names of other people
who played a role in the
founding and development of
Paxton, for purposes of hon-
oring them on a monument.
That motion was approved
4 1, Mathis voting no.
City attorney Bytell re-
ported that the town's re-
quest for bids to administer
a grant received by the town
had drawn only one submis-
sion, which was approved
unanimously.
The council's recently pro-
posed ordinance on a water
rate increase was scheduled
for a public hearing and first
reading on July 21.
Two loan applications, one
for $107,000 and another for
$139,000, were approved
unanimously.
Council member Sexton
reported that plots in the
town cemetery needed to be
marked and numbered be-
fore sale.
Several housekeeping
items dealing with air condi-
tioning, plumbing, and furni-
ture at the post office and
town hall were addressed
and repairs approved.

"My experience in both the

Sheriff's search

yields 53 marijuana

plants, paraphernalia


By BRUCE COLLIER
Walton County Sheriff's
Office (WCSO) narcotics in-
vestigators executed a resi-
dential search warrant that
yielded 53 marijuana plants
and assorted paraphernalia
on July 14.
The warrant was served
and executed at 119 Darnell
Lane, just west of Mossy
Head. In addition to the


plants, officers seized a quan-
tity of drying marijuana, pot-
ting soil, and other parapher-
nalia.
The resident of the ad-
dress, Wayne Charles Keith,
60, was arrested and charged
with cultivation of marijuana
and possession of parapher-
nalia. He was transported to
Walton County Jail.


By BRUCE COLLIER
A Catholic priest has been
arrested and charged with
lewd and/or lascivious bat-
tery in Holmes County.
In a press release, Holmes
County Sheriff Dennis Lee
announced that Vijay Vhaskr
Godugunuru, 36, "a Catholic
priest," was arrested: follow-
ing an investigation by the
Florida Department of Chil-
dren and Famiilies.
The press release says that
theWalton County Sheriff's
Office (WCSO) executed the
Holmes County warrant.
The press release states
that Godugunuru "has been
serving at a local church for
the past month."
Lt. Chris Wells, in charge
of the investigation in
Holmes County, said that
Godugunuru had been serv-
ing at St. Margaret's (in De-


Funiak Springs) and at
Blessed Trinity church in
Bonifay. The incident giving
rise to the charge allegedly
involved a person from
Blessed Trinity.
The WCSO arrest register
for July 13 lists Godugunuru
as having been arrested on a
hold for Holmes County, and
lists his address simply as
"St. Margaret, DeFuniak
Springs."
At press time, the Herald-
Breeze had not been able to
reach anyone at St. Margaret
of Scotland Catholic Church
in DeFuniak Springs for com-
ment.
Wells confirmed that
Godugunuru has not been
charged with any alleged of-
fenses in Walton County.
He is currently being held
in Holmes County jail under'
a $20,000 bond.


Agricultural
tourism
launches in
Walton County
A growing number of
Americans are rediscovering
their rural roots and the
countryside's simple plea-
sures through agricultural
tourism, also referred to as
agri-tourism. The Walton
County Tourist Development
Council (TDC), the Univer-
sity of Florida's Institute of
Food & Agricultural Sciences
(IFAS) Extension and "visit
Florida," Florida's official
tourism agency, have
partnered in the first "Visit
Florida" Rural Pilot Pro-
gram for promoting agri-
tourism in Walton County.
Walton County was one of
two counties chosen for this
year's pilot program, which
involves marketing an exist-
ing farm or ranch product
differently. This is done by
adding a new product or ser-
vice to existing enterprises as
an alternative source of in-
come. Examples of agri-tour-
ism activities include farm
festivals and tours, nature or
historic tours, bird watching,
and fee fishing or hunting.
Walton County TDC is uti-
lizing the pilot program to
create an agri-tourism ad,
produce an agri-tourism bro-
chure and hold workshops for
marketing and promoting
agri-businesses.
The featured businesses
consist of Shoal Sanctuary
Nature Preserve and Sculp-
ture Trails, located in Mossy
Head; Rocking B-A-B Ranch,
located in DeFuniak Springs;
the Glendale Memorial Na-
ture Preserve, located in
Glendale; and Muscogee Na-
tion of Florida, located in
Bruce. Through educational
workshops, the owners par-
ticipating in the program are
gaining knowledge on how to
educate visitors through
guided tours on their prop-
erty.
Although the primary rea-
son tourists visit Walton
County is the beach, studies
show that many families are
also looking for an educa-
tional experience during
their vacation. The agri-tour-
ism program enhances the
destination's existing activi-
ties away from the beach and
provides visitors with a
hands-on learning experi-
ence.
For more information on
agricultural tourism in Wal-
ton County, please contact
Tiffany McCaskill at 850-
267-1216.

Tax Collector Rhonda Skip-
per announces the selection
of Patty Winstead as the Em-

values during each quarter.
During the award presen-
tation, Skipper stated,
"Winstead exemplifies the


core values of the organiza-
tion, and performs her duties

ous manner.
In her role as Property Tax

instrumental in the process-
ing of thousands of refunds

cane tax relief ordinance
passed by the Board of

in the first- ever online tax


certificate sale that produced
record revenues for the
county. She also administers

Bronson
announces new
tax exemption
for Florida
agricultural
producers
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson
today announced that a new
state law that takes effect
this month exempts electric-
ity used for agricultural pro-
duction from the state's sales
tax.
"We are grateful that the
Legislature, enacted this
meaningful relief measure,
which will assist our agricul-
tural producers in helping
them hold down their produc-
tion costs," Bronson said.
Under terms of the law,
which took effect July 1, the
exemption requires that
those requesting it sepa-
rately meter electricity used
in production activities from
the electricity used for other
purposes. If the electricity is
centrally metered and is used
for both tax-exempt and tax-
able purposes, the purchase
of the electricity is subject to
tax.
The exemption covers vir-
tually all aspects of a farmer
or rancher's business opera-
tion, including, the prepara-
tion, planting, cultivating,
harvesting and processing of
agricultural products. It in-
cludes aquaculture, horticul-
ture, floriculture, viticulture,
forestry, dairy, livestock,
poultry, bees and any or all
forms of farm products.
To qualify for the exemp-
tion, agricultural producers
must furnish their utility
provider with an exemption
certificate stating that the
electricity will be used di-
rectly and exclusively for the
production or processing of
agricultural products.
Producers can contact the
Florida Department of Rev-
enue for forms and other in-
formation about the exemp-
tion at http:/www.myflorida-
.com/dor/ or call the agency's
taxpayer services section at
1-800-352-3671 or (850) 488-
6800.

pects initially listed in the
2000 incident.
Over the years, DNA tests
cleared all of the suspects in
that case.
In 2003, Crystal was
charged with an unrelated
sexual offense, and after sub-
mitting a DNA sample, was
found not guilty.


However, Crystal's DNA
sample taken for the 2003
charge was found to be a posi-
tive match with that of the
2000 charge.
According to Gandy, Crys-

2003 and 2006 "incarcerated

The Uniform Crime Report
(UCR) released on July 11 by
the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement (FDLE),
states that the 2005 crime
rate in Florida was "the low-

1971."

The UCR is based on data

said.
In 1996, Sharon married
Richard Roberts. He also
attended Freeport High

sports. Roberts said, "We now
have an 8-year-old son,
Richard L. Roberts Jr. He

The rate of violent crimes
decreased by 0.6 percent in
2005, with non-violent crimes
down by 4.2 percent. The de-
crease since 1995 is 33.9 per-
cent for violent crimes and
39.4 percent for non-violent
crimes.
By contrast, the rate of vio-
lent crimes committed with
firearms was up by 7.5 per-
cent in 2005, though it was
down by 26.7 percent since
1998.
The total number of re-
ported arrests for 2005 was
up 2.6 percent from 2004, and
up by 45.4 percent since 1995.
The percentage of arrests for
drug offenses was also up, 6.9
percent higher than in 2004,
and 82.5 percent higher than
in 1995.
The 'total crime rate for
Walton County was down by
12.3 percent from 2004. The
index crime rate also de-


creased by 7.1 percent.
Broken down by specific
offenses, the murder rate re-
mained constant for both
years, while forcible rapes,
robberies, and aggravated
assaults were on the increase.
The number of burglaries,
larcenies, and motor vehicle
thefts were all down from
2004.
According to the report,
the population of Walton
County was 50,543 in 2004,
and 53,525 in 2005.
Walton County Sheriff
Ralph Johnson said "I am
extremely pleased with the
UCR report. This great news
is a reflection of the hard
work and dedication of the
deputies and investigators of
the Sheriff's Office. I would
also like to thank the Board
of County Commissioners
and the citizens of Walton
County for providing the staff
and resources that make this
effort possible."

In Florida, the summer months can bring temperatures reaching into the high 90's and 100
plus degrees and lasting for several weeks. Our. bodies produce a tremendous amount of .
internal heat and we normally cool ourselves by sweating and radiating heat through the skin.
But in our hot, humid weather, sweat doesn't work as well. The surrounding air is already
warm and heavy with humidity, and it cannot absorb extra heat and sweat. If a person
becomes dehydrated and can not sweat enough to'cool their body, their internal temperature
may rise to dangerously high levels, causing heat stroke.

Typically, about 240 people in the United States die. irom heat illnesses each year, according
to the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. During heat waves, that number .
has risen to as high as 1,700. Young children, the elderly and those who are sick and
overweight are more likely to be victims.
Heat stroke is the most severe form of heat illness and is a life-threatening emergency. The victim may develop
headache, slurred speech, dizziness, faintness, hallucinations, seizures, and may even become comatose. It is a condition
that develops rapidly and requires immediate medical treatment. The important thing is speed: The faster the victim is
cooled and rehydrated, the better his or her chance for survival. There are some immediate first aid measures you can
take while waiting for help to arrive. Remove the victim from the heat and have them lie down. Apply cool compresses,
elevate the feet, drink fluids and use a fan to blow cool air:

To prevent heat stroke before it occurs drink plenty of fluids during outdoor activities, especially on hot days. Water and
sports drinks are the drinks of choice; avoid tea, coffee, soda and alcohol as these can lead to dehydration. If you're
exercising, that means about 1 liter (about 1 quart) every hour. If you're just puttering in the garden, take a large jug of
water with you, and sip it continuously. Wear a hat with a broad brim to protect you from the sun and loose clothing to
allow sweat to evaporate. Wear sunscreen. A sunburn will inhibit your skin's ability to sweat. If you exercise outdoors
in the summer, do so in the early morning or late evening hours when it's cooler. Stay in an air-conditioned environment
on hot days. If that's not possible, take cool baths, spray yourself with water frequently, and sit in frontof a fan. If you
feel faint, call for emergency medical attention.

You can also prepare your home by having proper insulation and weather-stripping on doors and window sills. Have a
professional ji. e your air-conditioning unit a check-up andmake sure all ducts are properly insulated. During the hot
summer months cover your windows with hanging shades, draperies or louvers. Outdoor awnings or louvers can reduce
the heat entering a house by as much as 80 percent. Conserve electricity. During periods of extreme heat, people tend to
use more power for air conditioning which can lead to a power shortage or outage. Stay indoors as much as possible and
use ceiling fans to circulate the air.

And don't forget our furry friends! Remember that'pets and hot
.----- cars DO NOT mix. Never leave a pet in a car, even for a few
j minutes. A parked car can quickly become a death trap for
anything shut inside. A body temperature of just 107 degrees
may cause brain damage or death from heatstroke in an animfnal.
Leave your pet at home with a clean supply of water when
you're out running errands during these hot summer months.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JULY 20, 2006


near the Walton Correctional
Facility north of DeFuniak
Springs is expected to be
ready for use in less than six
months.
With responsibility for the
jail going to the BCC, Adams
confirmed that the sheriffs
office is now proposing the ad-
dition of only 10 new posi-
tions, including a school re-
source officer, five deputies


and four clerks.
With the change, the
sheriffs department's pro-
posed $19.3 million Fiscal
Year 2006-07 budget will be
reduced to $15.3 million, and
the BCC budget for the new
fiscal year will increase by
that $4 million difference.
Johnson declined to offer
any comment at the Thurs-
day budget hearing. He said


only a few words to Channel
13 television reporter Chris
Mitchell, who followed the
sheriff to his car, trying to
engage him in conversation
as he left the meeting early.
"They can run it," he said
of the BCC and the jail, add-
ing the assurance, "It'll be all
right," as he slammed his car
door.
County Commission Chair
Scott Brannon stated after
the meeting that he had no
idea what prompted the sher-
iff to give up the jail.

Bonnie McQuiston, presi-
dent of the Walton County
Taxpayer'sAssociation
(WCTA), remarked that she
had inquired about the in-
crease in the number of em-
ployees for the sheriffs office
in the proposed budget when
she met with the county fi-
nance director, but added that
there had been no objection
to the increase by the WCTA.
"We were as surprised as
everyone else was,"
McQuiston said of the
sheriffs decision.
Initially, Sheriff Johnson
declined to talk publicly
about his specific reasons for
transferring the jail opera-
tion to the BCC. Johnson
made his first public state-
ment about the issue to the
DeFuniak Springs Herald-

sultant services fees as well

language services,
for example.
Large purchase orders for
new textbooks were approved
as well as the disposal of old
school buses and obsolete
equipment throughout' the
district, as is consistent with
the startup of another ap-
proaching school year.
The board held open public
hearings on the student pro-
gression plan as well as the
2006-07 code of conduct. Both
measures passed on a 3-0
vote (Mark Davis and Donnie
Richardson were not at the
meeting due to previous en-


gagements.) with no public
comments, mainly due to no
public attendance at the
meeting.
The next regularly sched-
uled meeting of the Walton
County School Board will be
held on Monday, August 7, at
5 p.m. at the Tivoli Adminis-
trative Complex.

Johnson said, "We simply
can't run the jail without
enough staff. We took less
positions last year than I re-
quested, which made this
year's request greater than it
might have been, but- every
position was justified. I am
talking to the Commission
and their staff about the
problem. If we can resolve the
question about the number of
staff required to run the jail',
then the Sheriffs Depart-
ment would gladly consider
continuing to operate the jail
for the benefit of the taxpay-
ers."
District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones commented on
July 17 that, while the BCC
received a copy of the sheriffs
letter prior to the budget
hearing, there has been no
decision yet by the BCC on

the matter.
. "The only decision was by'
the sheriff," he said, adding
that the BCC has much to
discuss in the future on the
matter and much planning to
do.
"It is the responsibility of
the board of county commis-
sioners to operate the jail,"
Jones, said, adding that the
sheriff had been shouldering
that duty as "a courtesy."
"Ultimately, it is the
county jail, and the board (of
county commissioners) has
responsibility for it," re-
marked Walton County Attor-
ney David Hallman.
"I'm confident that what-
ever happens, the board will
be able to handle it and meet
the public's expectations, and
if necessary run the jail and
run it in an efficient manner,"
Hallman stated.

Camf Helen



By Jeffrey Powell
Nestled among sand dunes and moss
draped live oaks lies one of the last true
beauties of northwest Florida.
Camp Helen State Park consists of over
180 acres in the southwest corner of Bay
County. Although relatively new by state
park standards (1996) Camp Helen has a
rich and varied history.
Native Americans had inhabited the area
thousands of years before Europeans ar-
rived. The many shell middens on the prop-
erty attest to this fact.
In 1840, a ship captained by.a man named
Phillips ran aground near the inlet of what
we now know as Lake Powell. After several
days of trading with the indigenous natives
Captain Phillips and crew were attacked
and his ship was burned. Phillips Inlet was
named for the ships captain.
1928 saw J.J. McCaskill and Robert Hicks
create a company with interests in devel-
oping Camp Helen as a retirement complex.
Hicks died shortly thereafter and his widow
bought out McCaskill and continued to live
on the property.
Alabama governor Braxton Bragg Comer
has his dream of an employee retreat real-
ized in 1945 when Camp Helen was pur-
chased by Avondale Mills.
In 1993, Helen Schroeder, a Walton
County resident, spearheaded an effort to
see the state purchase the land. With the
support of Dana Beach Resorts, Schroeder's
vision was realized and the property was
finally purchased by the state.
Today, the park is a wonderful reminder
of the way the beach used to look. Visitors
to the park can enjoy swimming, fishing,
picnicking or walking on one of the well
maintained nature trails
Recently, the state of Florida has allocated
$1.5 million dollars for renovations at Camp
Helen. "these funds are a blessing" said
Park Manager Dan Blanner when discuss-
ing the allocation. Camp Helen is open from
8 a.m. until sunset 365 days a year.
For more information call (850) 233-5059.


THE LODGE AT CAMP HELEN has been restored to its original circa 1932 condition.

Cameron Michael Lund
March 6, 1987 February 19, 2006
Our Loving Son, Brother and Friend

A heartfelt "thank you" to all who
enveloped our family with kindness,
support and sincere sympathy during the
darkest and most trying time of our lives.
Your thoughtfulness and deeds of kindness
have touched our hearts and will be a part
of us forever. The many cards and letters,
calls, visits, meals, and overall support were
and continue to be comforting. Especially, to
know that Cameron and our family were
thought of by so many wonderful people.

The past weeks and months to come would
be impossible to bear without our faith,
family and friends. We could not get
through this time in our lives
without each of you. Your continued prayers
and support are felt ever so strongly each
day. May God bless you all for being a part
of Cameron's life
and ours.

Remember Cameron's zest for life and his
love for family and friends.

Sincerely,
Darrick, Robbie and Dillon Lund

so many people that are tired of going to church and leaving the

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

To Stray or Not To Stray
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC

On October 31, 1983, Korean Airlines flight 007 departed
from Anchorage, AK for a direct flight to Seoul, Korea.
Unknown to the crew, the computer engaging the flight
navigation system contained a one-and-a-half-degree rout-
ing error.
At the time of departing, the mistake was miniscule
and was unnoticed. However as the 747 continued through
the Aleutians and out over the Pacific, the giant plane
veered from its proper course.
Eventually, it flew into Soviet air space, and Russian
fighter jets shot flight 007 out of the sky. All who were
aboard flight 007 perished due to their 747 being slightly
off course.
When it comes to walking with God, we must keep the
Word as our lamp unto our feet and light unto our path.
When we stray just a little, the results may seem minor at
first, but the longer we stray the more harm it will bring.
Stay on course! Be quick to repent!
Stop by here on your way to eternity! Sunday School
9a.m.; worship 10 a.m.
We are proud sponsors of Angel Food ministries, help-
ing feed the poor in our area.

Junior League team wins extra innings thriller


By Patrick Casey
The DeFuniak Springs-Freeport junior league team be-
came the only team from the county to claim a Little League
district title with a 3-2 win over Tri-County in Century on
Monday night. Levi Burke scored on a throwing error in
the bottom of the ninth to earn the win for the visiting team.
James Towery pitched a gem going nine innings for the win.
DeFuniak rebounded from their first loss of the tourna-
ment on Saturday as the squad committed six errors to let
the host squad escape with a 9-3 victory and force a decid-
ing game for the title.
The 13-14 year old squad, made up of players from DeFu-
niak and Freeport, defeated Baker, Tri-County and Niceville-


Valparaiso to earn the upper hand in the double-
elimination tourney.
DeFuniak will play in the state sectional round of the jun-
ior league playoffs on Saturday and Sunday, July 22-23. The
format will be a best-of-three game series with a double-
header played at noon and 5 p.m. on Saturday at Showalter
Park in Century. If the two teams split the two games on
Saturday, a winner-take-all game will be played on Sunday
at 2 p.m.
The winner of the sectional will advance to the junior
league state tournament in Boynton Beach that will be held
July 28-31.

Kids play ball,

parents keep quiet!


By CHUCK HINSON
In the past few years ,with
all the sporting events that I
have covered, I've had an in-
credibly interesting ride. I
have been on the front line
and I have seen the damage
and destruction that war on
the field has caused.
No, I'm not referring to the
war in Iraq, but to children's
sporting events and the ca-
sualties that have mounted
over the past few years.
Have you ever been at a
little league game, a pee-wee
football game or even a high
school basketball game and
heard the fans in the stands?
It is like the Romans in the
Coliseum, waiting for the at-
tack of the lions.
One call that the fans don't
believe was correct, one'
wrong move by the ref, or
decision by a coach, and the
stands lunge for their throat.
This has become such a
problem with younger
children's sports that even
murders have occurred, tak-
ing revenge to the ultimate
limit. It is a situation that
has officials, sports authori-
ties and athletic associations
all on edge.
Just over seven years 'ago,
I attended a; little league
baseball game in Mary
Esther. It was a play-off tour-
nament and there was a little
riding on the line. Please re-
member it was just a city
little league game. -
You might remember I
wrote a story on the episode
the following week and I got
cheers and chants from read-
ers of all ages.
It seems that one bad call
by the referee was all it took
to heat up the crowds. Yes,
one of those competing home
teams were from Walton
County.
After the parents began to
throw soda bottles, popcorn
bags and hotdogs, then they
started throwing insults to-
ward the ref, the opposing
team and even their own
team's volunteer coach. The
situation ended with the po-
lice department responding,
the referee escorted to his car
by a cop, and the coaches of
both teams kept in the dug-
outs until the field and
stands could be cleared.
Yes, this story really hap-
pened here in our own back-
yard with our own county
neighbors.
The most troublesome and
embarrassing part of the
story is that the parents were
cursing the opposing teams
of 10 and 11-year-old play-
ers. Cursing these kids who
were mostly out there be-
cause they were pushed into
the sport by those same par-
ents.
After feeling embarrass-
ment for the athletes, my
shame turned to anger to-
wards the parents for their
actions. Apparently, so did
the feelings of the opposing
team's parents, who filed
charges.
In high school sporting
events, it is always the same
no matter where you go. Ref-
erees are never right, every
call by the coach is wrong, or
the other kid on the bench
could do a much better job.
This is a typical human re-
action, and I am as guily as
the next person.
There has been talk that
Florida's athletic associa-
tions will begin to follow the
guidelines of surrounding


states regarding fans' behav-
ior. If you act up and show
your ignorance at a public
event, you get a free ride to
jail.
Officials, players, coaches
and even fans feel that this
is necessary. This would not
only protect the home team,
it would also serve as a de-
terrent for "off-the-field
harassment" now on the in-
crease in the public school
programs.
With parents and schools
pushing their athletes to do
better, win more and feel less
pain, sportsmanship is de-
creasing and the push for to-
tal defeat and domination is
increasing. As many great
athletic coaches have said,
"there has to be an equal bal-
ance."
As the summer months
begin to wind down and
school opens in three weeks,
the sporting events will once
more light up the Friday
night skies at the county sta-
diums. Once again, thou-
sands will pour into the
stands to see their favorite
soccer, volleyball and football
team.
As each play is made and
each call is given, remember
that these- people are paid
employees doing their job.
They have been trained and
licensed to do their tasks on
the field, in the call box and
in the locker room.
They took on this career
because they love the sport
and, though not every call
might be the best decision or
answer, they are the coaches
or referees.
As I and many others like
me have been told before, and
will be told again, "If you can
do a better job, you get out
there."
What they are really tell-
ing me is to put up or shut
up!

Wad kins takes championship


By CHUCK HINSON
After shining like a newly-
minted penny at Sandestin
during the Boeing Champi-
onship in May, Bobby
Wadkins has again made his
mark, winning the Senior
Players Championship on
Sunday in Dearborn, MI.
The 12-foot putt on the
72nd hole of the tournament
was said to be the best double
bogey putt that Wadkins had


ever made. It gave the 54-
year-old player confidence
and an opportunity to keep
playing the game.
Wadkins ended up shoot-
ing a 4-under 68 on Sunday
and was 14 under for the
tournament. He was one
stroke better than Jim
Thorpe who shot a 69 on Sun-
day and came in runner-up
for a third time at the Senior
Players.


The win was Wadkins'
third' Champions Tour vic-
tory of his career. The other
wins included the 2001 Long
Island Classic and the 2006
Boeing Championship.
Wadkins still has not been
able to win a PGA tour. His
best finish in both tourna-
ments of the Champions Tour
in the Senior PGA was sec-
ond in both 2002 and 2003.

Kyle Busch has waited for
over a year to throw up his
arms in the victory circle.
This past Sunday he got to
do the winner's walk after
winning the NASCAR Nextel
Cup Lenox Industrial Tools
300 in Loudon, New Hamp-
shire.
At the young age of 21,
Busch has had some excite-
ment in his short career, in-
cluding two victories, but
alsomuch disappointment.
He finished in the 20th spot
in his rookie year and had
plenty of reasons to hang it
up after last season.
Even though there were 11
caution flags flown through-
out the Sunday afternoon
race, Busch stayed steady
and did not allow the flags or

It seemed like the same old
song and dance for Michael
Schumacher as he rolled into
the winner's circle to accept
the prize for winning his
eighth French Grand Prix in
Magny Cours, France this
past Sunday. He and his
Ferrari finished 10 seconds
ahead of the world's reigning
Formula 1 champion,
Fernando Alonso.

Felipe Massa finished in the
third spot.

hand.
In lap 240, Busch pulled
ahead of Elliott Sadler to
take the lead. It looked for
certain that he had the third
win of his career when Brian
Vickers and Clint Bowyer
had a crash with only three
lap to go.
The accident brought out
the final flag, and the race
was pushed to 307 laps.
Rookie Carl Edwards raced
in at second place, followed
by Greg Biffle, Mark Martin
and Kevin Harvick.
Jimmie Johnson remained

points and finished. in ninth

standing. At the present time
and after Sunday's victory,
Schumacher stands at 79
points, Alonso at 96.
Alonso, who took second
place in the race, said that
being able to take the crown
from Schumacher a while
back was victory enough.
Ralph Schumacher came in
fourth place behind his
brother with a time of 27.2
seconds. Kimi Raikkonen
came in fifth in the 70 lap
race.
The next grand prix race is
scheduled for July 30 with

By Dotty Nist
While plans are for
taxpayers to pay the county
a slightly lower rate per
dollar of assessed property
value in taxes in fiscal year
2006-07, Walton County's
proposed new budget still
shows more than a 19
percent increase over the
current year's budget.
Over $143 million is
proposed, consisting of
approximately $51 million
for general fund operations,
27 million for public works,
$15.3 million for the sheriffs
office operations, $17 million
for the tourist development
council, $16 million for
landifll operations, and $15
million 'for all other
operational expenses.
Over 4$4 million is
proposed for capital projects
in the new budget.
At the county's
preliminary budget
workshop last Thursday,
County Administrator
Ronnie Bell reported that the
county is looking at a
proposed countywide ad
valorem millage rate of 4.26
mills, a one-five-htndredth of
a mill reduction over the
current year 4.3099 millage
rate.
One mill equals one dollar
per $1,000 of assessed
property value.
Last year the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC)
reduced the millage rate by
three-quarters of a mill, but
the budget still increased
from $94.9 million to $119.8
million.
Factoring in property
value increases, and an
approximate 28 percent
increase in taxable property
value over that of the current
year' for ad valorem tax
purposes, the 4.26 mill rate
is expected to generate
approximately $15 million in
additional revenues for the
county in 2006-07.
Ad valorem taxes make up
a sizeable portion of funding
for the county budget but
other revenue sources such


as gas taxes, bed taxes,
license and permits fees, and
other miscellaneous sources
provide more than half of
funding for the budget.
The addition of 24 full-
time employees under the
BCC is proposed for the
2006-07 budget, along with
31 full-time employees under
the county's constitutional
officers. This would bring the
total number of employees to
540 for the BCC and 415 for
the constitutional officers.
The proposed budget
provides for a 2.5 percent cost
of living pay increase for
employees, along with a 1.5
percent incentive increase,
an expense of approximately
$315,000.
Proposed as part of the
new budget at Thursday's
workshop was $20.4 million
in unbudgeted expenditures,
for five capital projects,
including $1.7 million for the
new jail project, $2 million
for the courthouse expansion
project, $1.7 million for the
planned new animal shelter,
$10 million for a new south
Walton County Annex
building, and $5 million for
a new building at the landfill.
County Finance Director
Bill Imfeld explained that
items included in the capital
projects category do not
impact ad valorem taxes.
They are to be funded by
bonding or borrowing in
conjunction with other
revenue streams.
Imfeld suggested that he
investigate financing for at
least the first three projects
and come back to the BCC
with details.
District 4 Commissioner
Ro Cuchens requested that
$5 million be added to the
capital projects list to help
create a regional park on the
property that was donated to
the City of Freeport by the
Hammock Bay developers.
His request was
controversial with
representatives of the Walton
County Taxpayers
Association because the
matter had not been


previously discussed along.
with the other proposed
capital projects. District 5
Commissioner Cindy
Meadows also argued that if
this project were included, an
item for acquisition of park
land south of the Bay should
also be put into the capital
projects list.
Staff was directed to add
line items for the Freeport
park and for park land south
of the Bay to the list.
At the, close of the
workshop, Bonnie
McQuiston, Walton County
Taxpayers Association
(WCTA) president,
commended the county for
working very well with the
public in preparing for the
budget workshop. She
thanked officials for
"conscientiously" limiting
hiring and expenditures, in
the proposed budget.
McQuiston also suggested
prioritizing the hiring of a
clerk's office staff person for
internal audit to insure fair
bidding and enhance public
confidence.
Bob Hudson, also of the
WCTA, thanked the officials
for a "very positive" process
as his organization reviewed
the budget proposals prior to
the workshop. He noted with
appreciation that millions in
initially proposed
expenditures had been
"scrubbed" during in the
review process.
Anita Page of the South
Walton Community Council
also complimented the
officials on their
professionalism with regard
to the budget process.
The BCC will hold two
public hearings for the new
budget in September, one
tentative hearing and one
final hearing.

The public will soon be
able to view the proposed
budget. Wanda Smith, county
budget analyst, said her
office is preparing to post the
budget as soon as possible on
the Walton County web site,
www.co.walton.fl.us.

Living the dream


in Grayton Beach
By Jeffrey Powell
Current Walton County Artist of the Year Phil Kiser feels
good about his artwork. "Live in the moment," Kiser said
recently while showing his work at Big Mama's Hula Girl
Gallery in Grayton Beach.
Kiser has worked in many media but his mainstay is glass.
"I have never seen anyone else do what I do," Kiser said.
Kiser's dimensional glass mosaics incorporate hundreds of
hand-cut pieces of glass carefully laid together to catch the
light and become unique illuminating works.
Originally from the Appalachian mountains of Kentucky,
and surrounded by a family of craftsmen, Kiser finds,
inspiration in nature's beauty in the local area as well as in
his native mountains.
"I like to take items that most people throw away and
make something beautiful," said Kiser. Kiser's mix of natural
and industrial items has an interesting feel and fits well in
the local community.
Although only a full time artist for six years, Kiser is
grateful to have been chosen for artist of the year in October
of 2005. Kiser is the fourth person to be chosen for this
prestigious award. "I have'been treated very well by the area
and especially the South Walton Tourist Development
Council," Kiser said humbly.
To qualify for the award artists must have lived in Walton
County for at least one year and their work must exemplify
Walton County's heritage.
For questions concerning artist of the year, contact Tiffany
McCaskill at (850) 267-1216. Phil Kiser can be reached at
(850) 231-6201.

Bay Breeze Cottage project faces heavy wind


By Leah Stratmann
Marathon meetings of the
planning commission are be-
coming increasingly common
and when the first agenda
item takes more than two
hours to dispatch, no relief
appears to be forthcoming at
future meetings.
Crest Bay Development,
LLC and Don Brock, P.E. and
agent came before the com-
mission requesting approval
of a major development con-
sisting of 36 single-family
residences on 5.04 acres of
land with a future land use
designation of neighborhood
planning area/infill and
known as the Bay Breeze
Cottages. The site is located
along the south side of Crest
Drive, approximately one-


half mile west of the intersec-
tion of Ponce de Leon Drive
and Crest Drive.
According to county plan-
ner Tim Brown, the project
came before the board in Feb-
ruary and the commission
asked for some conditions to
be met before forwarding it
to the Board of County Com-
missioners (BCC). Those
items were to provide a
handicapped parking space
at the proposed swimming
pool and to remove a retain-
ing wall on the sor 'ast side
of the property. With that,
the project would meet the
building code. Brown noted
there existed drainage prob-
lems in the area, but county
engineers feel the new
project will not further exac-


erbate the problem. .
Jack Arthur, a certified
planner, addressed the com-
mission saying he had been
retained by people in the
neighborhood to oppose the
project. He said he sent an e-
mail on April 25 to the com-
mission expressing his con-
cerns about this project.
"Crest Drive on the south
side has a density of two
structures per acre. Eight
structures per acre is not
compatible and none of the
existing structures are four
stories high, which is pro-
posed for this development,"
he said.
Arthur also noted the con-
dition of Crest Drive where
there is no place to turn
around a vehicle. "Nine hun-


dred feet is along way with He further presented a peti-

the county to abandon the fee-

the county should keep the

County planning director

DEP releases Florida ocean and coastal value study


The Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection re-
cently released the Florida
Ocean and Coastal Econo-
mies report which estimates
the value of Florida's ocean
and coastal market. Part of
the Governors' Action Plan
for Healthy and Resilient
Coasts, the study is a guide
for progress of the Gulf of
Mexico that will be used by
the Gulf of Mexico Alliance.
Conducted by the National
Ocean Economics Program
(NOEP), the report compiles


information from 1990 2003
to provide a comprehensive
examination of Florida's ma-
rine economies.
"The report is an important
part of the Governors'Action
Plan to protect and preserve
the Gulf of Mexico," said
Stephanie Bailenson, direc-
tor of Florida's DEP Coastal
and Aquatic Managed Areas
(CAMA). "The information
and findings from the study
will be used to strengthen
protection of Florida's marine


and coastal resources."
The report includes the fol-
lowing findings:
*Florida produced $23.2
billion from transactions of
marine resources and opera-
tive industries.
Ocean tourism and rec-
reation for 2005-2015 in
Florida is projected to grow
by 73 percent, creating more
than 268,000 new jobs. ,
*Florida's Gross State
Product (GSP) for transpor-
tation and recreation is one
of the top five in the nation,


a significant influence on the
ocean economy.
Florida's coastal counties
increased employment by 31
percent, wages by 48 percent
and the GSP by 63 percent.
*Florida's inland economy
GSP is almost $200,000 bil-
lion compared to over
$402,000 billion for the
state's shoreline economy, a
difference of almost 300 per-
cent.

Water Conservation:


Washing Machines


A \washing machine is the second largest water
user in your home, with toilets being first.

A traditional washing machine uses approximately
41 gallons per load. The best way to lower this
usage is to buy a high efficiency washing machine.
These machines use 35-50% less water and 50%
less energy per load. This will save you money on
both your water and energy bills.


No matter what kind of washing machine
yOu have, here are some basic tips that can
reduce water use for washing clothes:
Operate the washer with full loads only -
even if the machine has adjustable load
setting. A full load is the most efficient
way to wash clothes.
SIf your washer has a variable water volume
setting, select the minimum amount
required per load.
Pre-treat stains to avoid rewashin2.
Use the shortest wash cycle for
lightly soiled loads.


* Check you


machine hoses regularly


for cracks that could result in leaks.

ever, improving the road is
not a requirement of the
county for a project to pro-
ceed. The drainage has been
looked at for both up and
down stream. Post develop-
ment should not change the
discharge," Graham said.
Arthur had indicated the up-
stream and downstream
drainage information was not
part of the report.
Pat Blackshear commented
"this project has been in the
works since 2003. I would like
to hear from the development
team about what was said at
the neighborhood meeting.
Since there is such opposition
to the project, maybe the 'de-
veloper could work on amend-
ing the project to make it
more agreeable to the neigh-
bors," she suggesteS'."
Engineer Brock said they
were not adding to the drain-
age problem, they were solv-
ing it. "State engineers have
looked at it. It would be sur-
prising if the project did not
solve the problem of storm

vide for collection and dump-
ing the water into the bay," he
said.
Scott Work, a lawyer for the
project, said there were no
current plans to build struc-
tures over two stories high.
Commissioner. Tom Terrell
said adding 36 homes means
they will have to exit from
Ponce de Leon Drive, which
is also inadequate.
Blackshear said she would
ask the developer to partner
with the county to work on
better ingress and egress.
Jane Angner said "don't for-
get that Crest Drive is nar-
row. If you put that many.
homes with that many cars
on that road, it Leaves no
room for pedestrians, moth-
ers with strollers, or bicy-
clists. We want things to be
safe and we don't want to be
washed away."

ted saying there were too
many engineering opinions
and saying it was the wrong
project for the area. "I would
like to see it denied as pre-
sented and give the developer
some time to negotiate with
the community to solve the
problems. Commissioner
Atkinson seconded the mo-
tion, but the motion failed
when Albert Paris, Tom
Terrell and Sally Merrifeld
voted nay.

A second motion by Terrell
was to approve the project
with stipulations the appli-
cant provide for a two-story
limit and a compatibility
study be provided, provide
the handicapped space at the
pool, remove the retaining
wall, work with the county on
improving traffic on Ponce de

Craving Cool

by Jenny Hotper


When summer sizzles, forget about turning on the oven!
Yet even with the temperature climbing, my delight in mak-
ing desserts for family and friends doesn't wilt. That's when
I turn to my file of favorite no-bake sweets.
Creamy Lemon Raspberry Pie is a dreamy dessert: A de-
licious shortbread crust is lined with raspberry jam and fresh
raspberries, topped with a creamy lemon filling and gar-
nished with more fresh berries. This classy pie always im-
presses.
Frozen Hot Chocolate is rich and frothy thick enough
to eat with a spoon or enjoy through a straw. Hot cocoa mix
and evaporated milk make this chocolateconcoction an irre-
sistible cooler. Top tall glasses of this treat with whipped
cream for kids of all ages.
Check out more chilling ideas at

pie filling mix
Grated peel of 1 lemon
1 container (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided
Additional grated lemon peel (optional)

SPREAD raspberry jam over bottom of crust. Sprinkle 3/4 cup
raspberries over jam.
BEAT cream cheese in large mixer bowl until creamy. Gradu-
ally add evaporated milk, pudding mix and lemon peel. Beat 2 min-
utes on medium speed until well blended. Gently stir in half of
whipped topping. Spoon into crust; top with remaining whipped
topping.
REFRIGERATE 2 hours or until set. Garnish with remaining
raspberries and additional lemon zest, if desired, just before serv-
ing.

FROZEN HOT CHOCOLATE

3 tablespoons superfine granulated sugar (or, baking sugar)
1 envelope (2 to 3 tablespoons) double chocolate, rich chocolate
or milk chocolate flavor hot cocoa mix
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/3 cup each semi-sweet chocolate morsels and milk chocolate
morsels

4 cups ice cubes
Whipped cream

over gently boiling water. Stir frequently until melted and smooth
paste forms. Add morsels; stir.
When morsels begin to melt, "'
slowly stir in 1/2 cup evapo-
rated milk. Stir until smooth
and velvety. Cool to room tem-
perature. .
PLACE chocolate mixture,
remaining evaporated milk and
ice in blender (in batches, if nec-
essary); cover. Blend until
