Johnson


speaks


out on


jail
By Ron Kelley
Walton County Sheriff
Ralph Johnson recently sent
a letter to the punty, made
public during,. a budget
workshop, informling them
that he would relinquish the
operation of the county jail to
their care, as&bf Jaf 1', 2007.
Although Johnson did not
comment on his reason's for
the action at the time; he
later said, '"We simply can't
run the jail without enough
staff. We took less positions
last year than I hbad
requested, which made this
year's request greater th a it
might have been, but ev ry
position was justified." Al
Johnson had asked fodr a
$19.3 million budget,
including 10 additional
patrolmen and 17 corrections
officers and staff membergsto
help man the much larger
jail and its medical fadty.
Apparently, disagreemni ts
with county staff over the
sheriffs budget is whlt
prompted Johnson to issue
the letter./ ,
In an interview with the
Herald-Breeze, Johnson said
the explosive growth of the
county's population was
creating an increased
demand for more law
enforcement and better jail
supervision and he had riot
made the budget request
without a careful study of the
sheriffs office needs. He said,
"We're using a precise
formula based on the riumbeer
of deputies per thousand
citizens. We didn't just piipk
the number out of the air. In
fact, all of our personnel
increases are in keeping with
the county's study, done by
Cody & Associates, which the
commissioners are on recoqd
as having approved." I,
Sheriff Johnson said that
after he had submitted his
proposed budget, he had been

JUDGE HOWARD LAPORTE (L) looks on while Circuit Judge Kelvin Wells takes
at construction plans inside the new courthouse wing, currently under construction.



Courthouse design



gets facelift


By LEIGH STRICKLAND
With a price tag of nearly
$1.5 million for Walton
County taxpayers, the Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners approved a
contract change order for the
Walton County Courthouse
renovation and addition
project. Dated June 13, 2006,
the change order increased
the cost of the project by
$1,479,798 to $11,856,
,036.54.
This increase in cost has
caused some to question
what the exact changes are
and why they came so far
into the project.
Walton County Construc-
tion Manager Rick Millard
has been with the project for
several years. He detailed the
history of the project.
"Seven years ago," he said,
"they began work on this
project. It takes about a year
in the design phase. So, a
year went by there.
"The job was eventually

County for the past four
years. I will continue to be
available to listen to your
concerns and suggestions. I
believe that communication
and a spirit of cooperation
are essential to our success.
Only by involving the citi-
zens of Walton County and
receiving their input can we
retain the values and tradi-
tions of the past while mov-
ing our county forward."
In conclusion, Pridgen
states, "The relationships
I've built over thr ast four
years will only se. lo make
me a better commissioner.
We have made great strides
toward. the future, and with
your support I am prepared
to work hard to keep Walton
County moving ahead."


put out on the street and bid.
It was awarded to a company
called Watkins Construction
Management. Within the
year after that happened.
Watkins went bankrupt. No
construction work had actu-
ally been started, but a lot of
paperwork, a lot of purchas-
ing, a lot of dollars had been
spent.
So, it took us another year
to year and a half through
the court bankruptcy system,
pursuing how much money
was owed us to collect all the
taxpayers' dollars back. By
that time, about four years or
so passed.
"Then, the process literally
started over. The original
drawings of four years ago
were for a complex that in-
cluded the courthouse,the
sheriff s new jail, the renova-
tion and addition to
thesheriffs office, etc. The
board decided at that time to
split the job into two. Hatch

courthouse in its smaller
form went out for bid then,
finally, after another year or
two had elapsed.
"So, now we're five to six
years into this thing and it
has taken us two years to get
to the point we are today. So,
we're talking roughly seven
years ago that this began."
Changes to the design have
been made for a variety of
reasons. According to
Millard, code changes af-
fected the project. He said,
"The fire codes changed.
About two years ago there
was a major change in the
national fire protection code."
He also cited changes
brought about as a result of
major hurricanes in recent
years.

Kemberly Ramer disappearance


FBI divers search

near Argyle for

remains of

missing teen


I By BRUCE COLLIER
i| A nine-year-old case of the
I suspected kidnapping and
murder of Opp teenager
Kemberly Ramer is back in

FBI agent Alan Ducote, of
the bureau's Mobile office,
said that an FBI diver inves-
tigation team will spend this
week performing a search of
a sinkhole, located on private
property off of CR-10A, some.
four miles north of Argyle.
According to Ducote, the
Opp. Police Department
(OPD) received an anony-
mous telephone tip in April,
directing them specifically to
the sinkhole.
. OPD contacted the FBI,
which has been involved in
the case since Kemberly's
disappearance from her
o home on August 15, 1997.
Ducote contacted FBI dive
teams in Washington, Los
Angeles, and Miami, and ca-
nine search teams in Louisi-
ana and Maryland, to pre-
pare for a search. The sink-
hole is about 300 feet wide,
with a maximum depth of 55
feet.
Using a line and grid sys-
a look tem, divers search by sight
and feel, and by using metal
detectors. If Kemberly's re-


mains are in the water,
Ducote hopes to be able to
identify them by teeth and
DNA.
Kemberly was reportedly
wearing several items ofjew-
elry, and had clear braces
with metal fittings on her


teeth at the time of her dis-
appearance.
Her mother, Sue, was on
the scene of the search. She
said that her 16-year-old
daughter was alone at home
when someone abducted her.
She is certain that her
daughter is dead, and hopes
that this new search will
bring someone forward who
has knowledge.
"I feel there's people out
there who really know the
truth about what happened.
and where the remains are,"1
she said.
Ducote said that thie
anonymous tipster als#a
claimed to know the perpee:
trator, but hung up without
giving a name.
According to Ducote, in-1
vestigators have conducted'
numerous digs, searches, and
hundreds of interviews over,
the past nine years.
Ducote said that if the r&-
mains are recovered, the FBI
will contact the Florida De-
partment of Law Enforce-
ment to enter the case. ;
Ducote said that anyone,
including persons that may
have withheld or misstated in-
formation during prior inter-
views with investigators,;
should contact the FBI, add-'
ing that such calls can be
made anonymously.

"We've gone through this
tragedy for nine years," said
Sue Ramer. "It's been long
enough. Just come forwarit
and give us some peace." --

Question: I bought a boat from someone in Alabama. The seller
says that Alabama does not title boats. What do I need to get it
titled in Florida?

The facts: Florida is a title state. The State of Alabama, as well as several
other states, does not title boats, so the registration is the ownership docu-
ment. In order for Florida to title a boat from a "registration only" state, the
original registration and an executed (signed) bill of sale from the registered
owner must be presented to the Tax Collector's Office, along with an applica-
tion for Florida Title, sales tax and title and registration fees. In the event that
the original out of state registration has been lost or destroyed, a letter from
that state's motor vehicle or vessel division verifying the owner of record
would be acceptable, along with a bill of sale.

EDITOR'S COMMENT


The ABCs of

By RON KELLEY

I don't know about you, but it's not often I see government
willing to offer a tax break to average citizens. When they
do, I recommend we take advantage of it.
This \\ eek. the state of Florida is giving the parents a tax
break on clothes, books and school supplies through July
30. This is a nice idea for a number of reasons.
Parents need the help. If you haven't tried to dress a child
with school clothes that are "cool" enough to prevent heck-
ling by other children and tried to make sure that the child
has all :he-.v need in the way of books and school supplies,
you just haven't lived.
AtY1 t\ wiht-. r :,generation wanted clothes that were neat, clean
al,', CmL ( have any holes in them. My generation wanted
ai lhini that haid holes in them, were faded or had patches.



L O IT O

Dear Editor,

Last week, my wife Alice, daughter Carol and I drove with
about 2,500 miles in search of that "right graduate school."
We drove interstates, four-lane roads, and local two-way
roads. We traveled through Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee,
Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and, of course,
Florida.
One of the remarkable lasting images of this road trip was
that Walton County, particularly U.S. 98 had the
worst maintenance and the highest amount of trash littered
about the roadway of all the States we drove through.
Interestingly, it is this portion of that highway that Walton
County has designated as a Scenic Corridor.
Scenic? Who is kidding who? I guess if you like to see trash,
and the worst maintenance / mowing jobs possible along a
road way. Sure, I know the Walton County officials in charge
will say that it is not the county's job to maintain the "state
roadway," but ultimately it is their responsibility because
they could make a change in who is responsible for the trash
pickup and landscape (lack of landscape) maintenance.
Maybe Walton County officials should drive to Destin to see
the landscaping of the medians.
The image of trash along the roadways of Walton County
is stronger than the slick advertising provided for in vari-
ous brochures and promotional materials trying to promote
Walton County. It is the first impression and the last im-
pression made on a traveling public, by auto anyway. What
it says is that Walton County doesn't care much about its
appearance so maybe it has the same attitude about its
residents.
It is a shame, because it doesn't have to be this way! There
is enough tax money generated that could be used to make
a difference!
By the way, Carol decided to attend graduate school in
Virginia Beach, Virginia. We are real proud parents, and
happy for her!

Corrections Clarifications

The July 20 article, "Walton County budget at $143+ mil-
lion" mentioned a $1.7 million figure in connection with the
planned county animal control shelter, one of the county's
capital projects.
The latter figure referred to the portion of the project cost
not included in the current budget and that would there-
fore require financing. According to the proposed 2006-07
budget, there is $1 million currently budgeted for the facil-
ity. According to the proposed budget, the estimated total
cost for the county shelter is $2.7 million.

tax breaks

Today's kids just want designer labels, whether they have
holes or not.
Sneakers today cost more than my first bicycle. For the
cost of a few books today, I could have rented a library and,
considering that we live in The Computer Age, there doesn't
seem to be any less paper in circulation.
To make matters worse, the family unit is not what it
used to be. There are lots of single moms and dads and grand-
parents shouldering the burden alone.
However, that's not the only reason that the statewide
sales-tax break is a good idea. It's also good for our economy.
This tax break gets those parents back in the retail stores
where they give the economy a nice boost before the sum-
mer ends. The next big time for retailers will be the Christ-
mas holidays.
According to the Florida Retail Federation, the tax holi-
day will help boost back-to-school spending above the 19
percent increase that is predicted for the nation as a whole.
Twelve other states have a sales tax holiday for back-to-
school shoppers, but Florida is the only state that includes
two weekends. The Federation estimates that parents will
spend about $527 on average on back-to-school shopping
this year, an increase from $444 in 2005.
My folks could buy clothes, shoes and school supplies for
less than $100. I must be really old, huh?
Hey! Don't answer that.




Editor,
In regards to the letter to the editor in July 13, 2006 issue
on "Heroes", I, myself, had a couple of heroes or angels that
came to my aid on two different occasions.
Thursday, July 13, 2006,1 I was walking my small dog along
Girl Scout Rd., when out of nowhere came six large and small
barking dogs. I believe they live on Daisy Lane, as when I
have walked Girl Scout Rd. other times, they all start bark-
ing. My dog was so scared when one of the dogs grabbed my
dog's tail and yelped and I bent down to pick up my dog and
he moved very'quick and broke his collar. Just then, a ve-
hicle stopped and a young couple hurried out and the young
fellow chased the dogs and the young lady came to me after
I had got a hold of my dog and picked him up and asked if we
were okay. I told her yes and then thanked her and they
were gone, with me so nervous I forgot to ask their names.
Thankfully my dog was not hurt and neither was I.
The other occasion was Saturday, July 15, 2006. I was
driving my van to Wal-Mart along Hwy. 90 and .just got
through the green light at the airport when my car started
making an awful noise, so I immediately pulled off to the
side of the road. I shut the van off, got out and looked around
and saw nothing wrong, I lifted the hood, but did not see
anything out of the ordinary, such as broken hoses, etc. I
closed the hood and along came a young man to see if I needed
help. I opened the hood for him to check and he found that
my alternator belt was off. He offered to call an auto store
and they had the belt I needed. So, I went with him, his wife
and daughter, as he said I did not need to wait in the sun.
Got the part and back to the van. This stranger proceeded
to install this belt and was having some difficulty and along
came a neighbor of mine, John Brazie, and he stopped to
help this stranger. They got the belt on and I started the
van up and it was making a noise and discovered it was the
water pump.
They removed the belt and the stranger left after me offer-
ing him some money, which he refused. I thanked him and
again never got his name. John drove the van to the auto
shop. His wife, Dana, had been sitting in the truck and they
drove me home.
Now these people that I did not get their name, know who
they are and I thank them all, and I' do believe they are
angels or heroes.
Thanks again, to all of you.

Dear Editor,

I am a bewildered resident of Walton County and I am
hoping that somebody can explain to me why we have to
pay so much for power here.
We have been a long time (10-year) customer of CHELCO
here in DeFuniak Springs and my monthly service contin-
ues to rise every month. I was surprised at my bill this
month. Not only do we pay for our usage, but we also pay a
customer charge of $18, a 27.4 percent charge for power being
brought in by Alabama Power, plus an administrative fee
($2) for our bills to be mailed to us.
I am fine with the member fee and usage, but enough is
enough with the other bull. We do not have a choice in where
we get our power from but as members we should have some
say in all of the other fees. CHELCO brags about its mem-
bers making the decisions, when in fact, we can change noth-
ing. I am sure that, as a community, something can be done
about these outrageous charges. We have to stand for some-
thing, right?
I spoke to CHELCO this morning and I was told that there
wasn't anything that I could do. I also spoke to Gulf Power
and they do not service my area. So where does this leave
us? It leaves us forced to pay whatever they want to charge
us or have our service interrupted. After talking to several
people, I have found that everyone with Gulf Power pays
about half of what we have to pay. How is that possible if
there is nothing that can be done?
I encourage everyone to take a long hard look at their
CHELCO bill this month and don't be afraid to ask why. If
the prices keep going up, those of us that are already strug-
gling aren't going to make it and those people that are can
barely feed their kids will do without.
This country needs to take care of its own and help each


other. I am not afraid to tell you all that something is very
wrong. We can make a difference if we stand up and say,
"Enough is enough."

Paxton Mayor looking for avenues of growth


By BRUCE COLLIER

Since taking office, Paxton
MayorWanda Smith has been
focusing on two main areas -
water and growth. Both are
related, she believes.
Smith has been mayor of


Paxton since June of 2005,
taking office following the
resignation of her predeces-

held any government jobs in
Paxton. Her regular day job
is as a budget analyst for the

Walton Road in DeFuniak, would like to

to be held on August 3 at 9 a.m.

candidates.
Following the meeting,
there will be an informal fo-
rum for members and friends
to question various candi-
dates regarding current
county issues. Those choos-
ing to eat should come a half
hour early.
The primary election is to
be held on Sept. 5, and the
general election will be held
on Nov. 7. "Now is the time
to ask questions an(dnote the

Since Smith took office, the
town has taken steps toward
upgrading its water system,
completing the grant applica-
tion process, digging a new
well, and building a backup
generator for the sewer
system's lift station. The ex-
isting system has its prob-
lems, with leaks and areas of
low pressure.
At the July meeting of the
town council, several water-
related agenda items led one
council member to express
his hope that the new system
will solve most existing prob-
lemins.
Smith also believes that
developing an infrastructure
is necessary to attract busi-
ness and industry, two things

agree are vital to Paxton's
growth.
"We need to keep people at

is going to improve'the area."
One of Smith's own chil-
dren is still living in Paxton,
the others have mved to Fort
Walton Beach and West Palm


Beach.
Suggestions have included
restaurants, industrial parks,
and possible future develop-
ment of airport property.
There is not a consensus on
the town council as to exactly
what kind of business or in-
dustry would be best. but
Smith is open to pretty much


anything, short of something
"toxic. "
Improvement of the water
system, paving of several
roads in the area, and a new
ball field are all positive
growth areas, she believes.

Local businesses to be honored as part
of "Best Places to Work" celebration event


The Workforce Develop-
ment Board of Okaloosa and
Walton Counties, the Eco-
nomic Development Council
of Okaloosa County and the
Walton County Economic
Development Council an-
nounce the 2nd Annual
Workplace Excellence
Awards Program.
The three organizations
are co-sponsoring the pro-
gram to honor those area
businesses and organizations
that lead the community in
providing quality work-
places. Winners of the three
2006 Workplace Excellence
Awards will be announced
and honored at the Breakfast
of Champions on Sept. 20, at
the Emerald Coast Confer-
ence Center on Okaloosa Is-
land. This event coincides
with the State of Florida In-
dustry Appreciation Week,
Sept. 18-22.
Fort Walton Beach Medical
Center, Spectrum Sciences &
Software, Inc. and the Wal-
ton County Tax Collector's
Office were honored as win-
ners of the 2005 Workplace
Excellence Awards.
The Workforce Develop-
ment Board has enlisted the
services of Personnel Dynam-
ics Consulting, Inc., to use ob-
jective and measurable data
to identify this 'year's win-
ners. Personnel Dynamics
analyzes and rates 37 objec-
tive measurements to deter-
mine the "Best Employers" in
Okaloosa and Walton coun-
ties.
The information is pro-
vided by the organizations
and calculated by a computer


program developed by Per-
sonnel Dynamics Consult-
ing. The credibility of this
program is based on facts
supplied by the participants
and not the opinions of the
community.
Applicants will be judged
in three groups based on the
number of their employees
working in Okaloosa and
Walton counties. Employee
size categories are 1-49 em-
ployees, 50-149 employees,
and 150+ employees.
Referring to the event,
Mary Lou Reed, executive
director of the Workforce De-
velopment Board said, "We
have many outstanding busi-
nesses and organizations in
our region."
The Workplace Excellence
Awards program gives an
opportunity to recognize
those who are deemed the
best. It also provides an op-
portunity to showcase some
of the programs and practices
that make them the best.
The competition is open to
all for-profit and not-for-
profit businesses and organi-
zations in Okaloosa and Wal-
ton counties. Businesses and
organizations are invited to
participate in the competi-
tion through their associa-
tion with the Workforce De-
velopment Board, the Eco-
nomic Development Council,
local Chambers of Com-
merce, and others. There is
no application fee.

cellence Award, go to

Arrested

priest had

little

connection

to Walton

County

By BRUCE COLLIER
A Catholic priest arrested
in Walton County last week
on charges of lewd and las-
civious battery on a minor in
Holmes County had only
minimal connections with
Saint Margaret of Scotland
Church in DeFuniak Springs,
said the pastor of that church.
Father Richard Dawson,
pastor of St. Margaret's, said
that Father Vijay Vashkr
Godugunuru was residing,
but not ministering, at St.
Margaret's at the time of his
arrest because the Diocese of
Pensacola-Tallahassee had
transferred him there from
thle rectory at Blessed Trin-
ity Church in Bonifay.
The priest, a native of In-
dia, was reportedly visiting
friends in Bonifay. When the
allegation of abuse was made,
the diocese Iprohibited him
from exercising any ministry
within the diocese. Bonifay
and DeFuniak Springs are
within the same diocese.
Dawson said that the de-
cision to move Gudugunuru
to the DeFuniak Springs rec-
tory was standard policy for
the diocese in cases of alleged
abuse.
"He really wasn't here,"
said Dawson, adding that few
of the parishoners at St.
Margaret's would have
known Godugunuru.
Holmes County investiga-
tor Lt. Chris Wells said that
Godugunuru was not being
investigated for any alleged
offenses in Walton County.

DeFuniak Springs Police seeking dispatch center


By LEIGH STRICKLAND
Police Chief Mike
Adkinson addressed the
DeFuniak Springs City
Council at its meeting Mon-
day night. In his police up-
date, Adkinson said that the
police department was look-
ing into establishing a 24-
hour dispatch system. They
are trying to find, he
said, "what best fits the needs
and what we can afford to do."
An integrated system is
necessary, Adkinson said,
and he's looking for some-
thing that is small and



JOHNSON.
FROM FRONT
assured by county staff and
officials that there were no
problems.
"Then at the eleventh hour,
I hear that the county plans
to make major cuts in my
personnel request because I
supposedly hadn't justified
each. position to the
satisfaction of the county's
finance department. Each
and every position .1
requested had already been
justified to the
commissioner's satisfaction,
because I was using a
standard formula and the
county's own study, which
they had already approved.
"Frankly, I don't think a
county commission's staff
member has the authority to
make wholesale decisions
about any constitutional
officer's budget. No staff
member of some other agency
has any real idea what my
department's needs may be.
How could they? It's fine for
that staff member to make
suggestions or
recommendations about the
budget to the commissioners
for them to talk to me about,
but for the staffer to decide
ahead of time what I can have
or not have is way out of
bounds and beyond that
person's authority.
Johnson stated that his
concerns were not directed at
any individual, but rather
with the process itself.
-- K ....


compact to fit the needs of
DeFuniak Springs. A basic
911 system, he said, is recom-
mended to start.
The initial setup cost is ex-
pected to be $80,000.
"We asked for a very sizable
grant," Adkinson said, but
he has gotten no word yet
about that grant. The cost
of the system was not fac-
tored into the city's budget.
Action will be needed soon
on this issue. A new system
takes 120 days to implement
and the current contract ends
November 25.



"That's why I sent the
letter. I know that the
commissioners can't run the
jail as cheaply as I can. Just
hiring new administrators
and staff will send that
budget through the roof and
that wouldn't be fair to the
taxpayers," he said. "What is
interesting is that, after I
sent the letter, when the jail
budget was presented to the
commissioners,,my original
personnel requests had been
restored exactly as I had
proposed. So, we they
justified all along or not?"
Johnson said that he is
more than willing to continue
to operate the jail as always,
but there needs to be some
changes regarding the budget
process. Johnson said he


In other council news, ac-
cording to an estimate
by Peters Municipal Associ-
ates, Inc., the cost to
repair drainage problems in
the Timber Wind
Estates subdivision will be
$39,500. The city has
contacted the developer
about making these repairs,
but he has not responded.
Some $14,000 remains in es-
crow from the development,
an amount that city attorney
Clayton Adkinson said can
clearly be used for the
repairs. The council voted to

would meet with the
commissioners individually
or as a body to reconcile the
issues. "The sheriffs office
has enjoyed a level of
cooperation with the
commissioners and it's in the
best interests of all the
taxpayers to maintain that
spirit of cooperation."
Johnson said if the
commission decides to take
irreversible steps to operate
the jail, it will remove his
biggest headaches and the
bulk of his liability, but it will
hurt the taxpayers in their
wallet.
Johnson said, "I hope the
commissioners will want to
work with me to resolve this
important issue for the
benefit of all the citizens."


Tri-Village Fire


Department to


be dissolve ed


The Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
unanimously voted Tuesday
to dissolve the Tri-Village
Fire department in Choctaw
.Beach. Walton County will
accept all real property and


cash assets now controlled by
the Tri-Village department.
This decision effectively dis-
solves the Tri-Village Fire
District and makes Walton
County responsible for fire
protection in that area.


Juniper Lake drawdown


By LEIGH STRICKLAND
Residents of the Juniper
Lake area can expect to
see less and less of the lake
as it undergoes a
cleaning process in coming
months.
Biologist Bob DeMauro
with the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission said that the
plan for cleaning out the
man-made lake,/located north
of DeFuniak Springs, in-
volves "getting the lake back
to usable condition." A draw-
down of the waters, he said, is
"inconvenient, but necessary."
According to DeMauro, Ju-
niper Lake has not had
a drawdown in over 20&years.
As a result, organic sediment
has built up as muck on the
bottom of the lake and has
become "a major cause of
habitat loss" that has "gotten
steadily worse and worse."
Vegetation in the lake is also
causing problems, he said,
making use of the lake diffi-
cult.
Taking advantage of re-


* 0O
S


cent dry weather that has
made the lake level low, the
drawdown process was
started by opening the valve
to begin draining the
lake. DeMauro said that an
engineering firm is
now collecting muck data and
is expected to develop a
map of muck deposits in the
lake. This map, to be
done within a week or two,
will be used to make
decisions about how to re-
move the muck buildup.
DeMauro said that the
level -of the lake will need
to be lowered by seven to
eight feet in order to do
the necessary work. The lake
drains about one inch per day,
he said, so physical work on
the project will not begin un-
til October or November of
this year.
Juniper Lake area resi-
dent Sally Johnson is
the president of the Juniper
Lake Conservancy Commit-
tee.
Of the project, Johnson
said, "We are really glad

and supportive. We're excited

A public meeting, Johnson
said, is to be held in August,
though the date is not set.
According to DeMauro, muck
removal options will be dis-
cussed with the public at this
meeting.


turn proceedings for recovery
of the funds over to Adkinson.
A grant agreement with
the FAA which would be
used for improvements to the
DeFuniak Springs Munici-
pal Airport came before the
council for approval.
The grant offer from the FAA
is to cover 95 percent of
the project's cost, up to
$41,057. The council
unanimously approved ac-


cepting the agreement.
With ,no members of the
public speaking against
the request, the council also
approved allowing Wal-
Mart to place 59 storage con-
tainers on its property for
the Christmas layaway sea-
son.
Council members ap-
proved renewing the
city's agreement with RWW,
Inc., formerly Old Crook


Creek Farms, for the removal
of sewage sludge for the
city for one year.
Work on providing water to
the new jail site is "way ahead
of schedule," according to
Charles Peters of Peters Mu-
nicipal Associates. About half
of the work is done, he said,
with only a third of the al-
lowed time elapsed.

tant to have affordable hous-
ing and they are taking a step
forward to do that," said
Casey.
The Steinbacher's'new

Walton Career Development

Center opening academies


By PATRICK CASEY .
The Walton Career Devel-
opment Center is looking for
ninth graders with an inter-
est in the area of architecture
design and engineering to at-
tend the Academy ofArchitec-
ture Design & Engineering
that will be offered in 2006-
07 at the WCDC.
The institute is a partner-
ship between the school dis-
trict, business, industry and
several higher education in-
stitutions. Students who ap-
ply and are accepted into the
magnet-type academy will be
offered learning experiences
that include rigorous and rel-
evant academic and techni-
cal curricula with an educa-
tion and career plan of study.
Job shadowing ,internships,
work experience and career
exploration will help prepare
for college or industry certifi-
cation for immediate en-
try into the workforce.
The career academy focus
is a "school within a school"
setting that is designed to
apply classroom instruction
to a real world work environ-
ment.
The Walton Career Devel-
opment Center also currently
offers health sciences train-
ing and experience. The
school may eventually ex-
pand with additional acad-
emies that focus on culi-
nary arts, hospitality and
tourism and information
technologies depending on
the development of the first
two pilot academies..
How the "school within a
school" model would differ
from the current standard is
in the academy's theme,
which is to integrate course
work with the career theme.
For example, students who
are selected for the allied
health sciences pathway
academy will not only
learn general algebra con-
cepts and constructs with
variables and equations, but


they will work with these for-
mulas in the real world set-
ting of health care. An allied
health student may be
solving problems related to
appropriate medication dos-
ages or radiation dosages for
patients.
Some of the occupations
that can be explored include
veterinary medicine, nurs-
ing, dentistry, radiology, op-
tometry, forensics, medical
records, health care manage-
ment, construction trades,
project management, draft-
ing, interior decor and design,
engineering, and land-
scape design.
Other career education
programs are available to
students in such areas as
horticulture, business and
information systems technol-
ogy, computer systems tech-
nology, and automo-
xtive technology. Academies
for some of these programs
are under development with
implementation of the career
themes planned for the fu-
ture..Walton Career Develop-
ment Center received two
of the twelve academies
granted throughout the state
of Florida.
The WCDC has tradition-
ally been a referral school, but
with the academy ap-
proach, students can now
choose to enter the 4-year
program as ninth graders.
Students have the option
to opt out of the program at
any time, should their career
path goals change..
The Walton County School
Board approved the academy
approach at a special
board meeting on July 24 by
a 4-0 vote.
. Parents of prospective ap-
plicants can refer questions to
the Walton Career Develop-
ment Center at 892-1240, ex-
tension 5157, or visit the
school at 761 North 20th
Street in DeFuniak Springs.

WILDERNESS near the Artic Circle in Alaska.


By BILLY VAUGHN
Approximately 15
miles north of Nome,
Alaska, near the Artic
Circle, are 2,300 acres of
wilderness. Cripple Creek
runs west into the
tundra-laden shore of the
Bering Sea. East lies a
picturesque background
of snow capped moun-
tains and streams.

The wilderness is as it
has been for centuries. In
the rivers and creeks,
several species of salmon
along trophy size fresh
water fish abound.
Grizzly bear, wolves, fox,
caribou, moose, musk
oxen and mountain goats
live unhindered by man
while Grey falcons and
Arctic terns circle over-
head. Access is over
rough wild terrain by
raised 4-wheel drive


ATVs, by foot, animal,
boat or canoe.
Surrounding acreage is
reserved for native
Eskimo. Access by non-
natives is granted by per-
mission only.
Gold was discovered
here in the 1900's. As
gold diminished, the area
was neglected until the
70's when plentiful gold
was once again found.
Global Outdoors bought
the acreage under agree-
ment to rebuild a frontier
town. It became the
Cripple River mining
camp set aside for those
wanting to experience
gold mining of the past. It
is not available to day
visitors or tourists. Due
to weather the camp is
open only 6 weeks each
year in July and August.
Hutches for sleeping, a
common dining room,


general stores and
saloons are as they were
in the early days. Paths
are dirt or gravel. Dusty
when dry and muddy
when wet. One truly
steps back in time and is
surrounded by nature. It
is arduous living with no
home comforts.

Wildlife unaccustomed
to and unafraid of man,
often visit the campsite,
creating added excite-
ment. Huge salmon can
quickly be picked out of a
stream for dinner. When
one gets tired of mining
one can go fishing.
Hunting is not permitted.
Awakening on the first
morning one assumes the
attitude of gold miners,
immediately surveying
for beach sites of course
white and black sand,
alluvial sites and tundra


RESULTS of prospecting.

banks. All likely gold
sites. One stake out his
claims, sets up equip-
ment, begins digging and
sluicing to separate gold
from sand and gravel.
One quickly learns the
ins and outs of prospect-
ing, gold recovery and
extraction. Early miners
had only hand tools.
Miles of ditches were dug
to bring water for sluic-
ing. Some of the ancient
mining equipment and
trenches remain today.
Even with some of today's
modern equipment it isn't


easy.
You're on your own.
You keep what you find.
Gold mined in a common
effort is equally divided
at the end of the week.
Gold nuggets are real
prizes.
Friday night is the end
of the week's 150-person
camp. We gather in the
saloon for a feast of
beans, fresh fish and corn
bread while dividing the
gold from the common
dig. Volunteers provide
entertainment by sing-
ing, story telling and


dancing, some with male
partners dressed as
ladies. A real old time
party. I came away with
greater appreciation of
the frontiersman, the
past, a lot of laughs and
13 nuggets, some made
into necklaces for my wife
and daughter.
Until next time.

NW Florida Symphony Orchestra Guild

and OWC to host concerto competition


The Northwest Florida
Symphony Orchestra Guild
and Okaloosa-Walton College
are proud to sponsor the 20th
Annual Concerto Competi-
tion open to students of or-
chestral instruments, key-
board, and voice who are 23
years of age or younger.
Students will compete for
prize money and the oppor-
tunity to play with the North-
west Florida Symphony Or-
chestra at the Feb. 23, 2007
concert.
The Competition is divided
into three divisions: Junior
Division, Senior Division,
and College Division. The
Junior Division is open to

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JULY 27, 2006


Darlington Vacation Bible School all a-buzz


Things are "buzzing" at
Darlington Baptist Church.
On June 25, Danny Wilkins,
music minister, promised to
shave his head if the students
attending Vacation Bible
School raised $600 to benefit
the Florida Baptist
Children' Home. During the
week, a 'Penny War' ensued
between the boys and the
girls. If the boys won, one of
the female VBS workers
would get a pie in the face. If


the girls won, Pastor Terry
Smith was chosen to receive
the pie.
The boys led in donations
most of the week, but the girls
won out in the end. By Fri-
day, June 30, the students
has raised over $900. Just
after the fellowship supper on
Friday night, the clippers
hummed, hair fell and a pie
flew. To show their support
to their teacher and to the


children, Cody Nelson, son of
Jerry and Jean Nelson, and
Tyler Ealum, sone of B.J. and


Johnnie Kay Ealum, decided having their heads shaved
to sacrifice their locks as well, were Timothy Smith, 18 and
"It's all for a good cause!" Also Levi Wilkerson, 18.
. The Florida Baptist


Children' Home, through
their many areas of ministry;
cares for disadvantaged chil-
dren throughout the state.

Sacred Heart Hospital on

nounces its first formal addi-
tion of pediatric services with
Dr. Susie FitzHarris, pedia-
trician, who will be joining
Sacred Heart Medical Group
on August 1.
'Dr. FitzHarris graduated
from medical school at the
University ofAlabama at Bir-

pleted three years of training

seminar
Dr. Jeffrey L. Lord, a spe-
cialist in laparoscopic weight
loss surgery, will present
Weight Loss Surgery: Is It
Right for You? on Tuesday,
Aug. 15, from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
at Sacred Heart Hospital on
the Emerald Coast. The
seminar will take place in
Suite 3 of the Resource Cen-
ter, which is located in the
west end of the hospital's
front parking lot.
The only board-certified
bariatric surgeon in North-
west Florida with advanced
fellowship training in weight
loss surgery, Dr. Lord serves
as director of the Sacred
Heart Institute for Surgical
Weight Loss. He has special
expertise in minimally inva-
sive surgical weight loss pro-
cedures.
Dr. Lord and the Institute
for Surgical Weight Loss can
perform two types of weight
loss surgery that use small
incisions. The first is
laparoscopic gastric bypass
surgery, which involves a per-
manent rerouting of the di-
gestive system that leaves
patients with a small stom-
ach pouch. The surgery cre-
ates a bypass that reroutes
food around a portion of the
small intestine.
The second, newer ap-
proach performed at Sacred
Heart is adjustable gastric
banding. Using a laparo-
scope, the surgeon places an
inflatable band around the
stomach, creating a small
upper pouch at the top, with
restricted passage to the rest
of the stomach. This pouch
fills quickly and creates a
feeling of fullness,
Dr. Lord and his staff pro-
vide comprehensive evalua-
tion of clinically obese pa-
tients to determine their can-
didacy for these life-changing
procedures as well as exten-
sive patient/family education
to create a foundation for a
healthy lifestyle.

mended for this free seminar.

DeFuniak Springs Junior


League team falls in sectional


By Patrick Casey
The DeFuniak Springs-
Freeport junior league team
split their first two games
with Woodville in the
Junior League Sectional held
in Century before falling 6-0
in the third and final game.
DeFuniak rebounded from
a shellacking in the first
game as Woodville came out
with bats blazing as
they rolled to an 11-0 win
over the District 1 represen-
tative. DeFuniak could man-
age only two hits in the game,
which was played in the
middle of a scorching Satur-
day afternoon as the first
game of a doubleheader. Cole
Weeks took the loss, but did
pitch five innings.
Rob Eldridge recorded the
victory in the opener, needing
only 94 pitches to shut down
the DeFuniak offense. Levi
Burke and James Towery re-
corded the only two hits off
Eldridge.
Eldridge's teammates
pounded out 12 hits while
hurting DeFuniak with ag-
gressive baserunning that led
to 13 stolen bases. Woodville
built a 6-0 lead after three
innings and coasted to the


win.
In Game 2 the roles re-
versed as DeFuniak took a 1-
0 lead in the top of the sec-
ond inning as Ryan
McLeod scored on Levi
Burke's two-out RBI single.
The game remained that way
until the fifth inning as
DeFuniak squandered sev-
eral scoring opportunities in
the first four innings.
The fifth inning was a dif-
ferent story, however, as De-
Funiak broke the game open
with a 6-run frame.
Kyle Clark singled in two
runners with the bases
loaded to up the advantage to
3-0. James Towery added an-
other run with a sacrifice fly
and Colton Campbell and
Adrian Hollingsworth fol-
lowed with run scoring
singles to pad the lead to 7-0.
Cole Weeks added another
run for DeFuniak as he
tripled and scored on a throw-
ing error by Woodville catcher
Justin Pichard in the seventh
for an 8-0 final margin.
Towery pitched a gem for
DeFuniak, tossing a complete
game one-hitter that took
only 72 pitches. The
game was called due to rain

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, JULY 27, 2006


Hamlin takes Pocono in hostile race


By CHUCK HINSON
Many thought his first sea-
son win was just the luck of
the draw, but after his stel-
lar performance on Sunday
at the Pennsylvania 500,
Denny Hamlin proved he had
what it took to win and then
to qualify for the Nextel Cup
competition.
Hamlin blew his competi-
tion away on Sunday as the
rookie pushed himself and
his team into cup contention.


He cruised the track for an
easy win, while his team-
mates were crashing all
around him.
Tony Stewart was fighting
his inner demons, while Dale
Earnhardt Jr. took yet an-
other slam on the tracks in
his pursuit of the cup.
Stewart has seen rough
times over the past few
weeks, but Sunday's race
capped it off for the two-time
and defending Nextel Cup


champion. He was black-
flagged early in the race for
intentionally wrecking Clint
Bowyer.
The drama came after
Bowyer pushed Stewart
against the wall. Stewart
angrily shook his fist at
Bowyer after the two cars
were detached. Stewart then
swerved directly into
Bowyer's car, sending it
spinning and taking out Carl
Edwards in the process.


NASCAR black-flagged
Stewart, pulling him into the
pit for a one-lap penalty that
dropped him to the 41st po-
sition.
Only a few laps later,
Edwards-returned the favor,
giving Stewart a bump that
sent him spinning and
earned Edwards a negative
nod from NASCAR officials.
Both drivers were cited for
aggressive driving.
Words flew between all


those involved in the confron-
tation Some spoke to report-
ers, while several vowed to
continue the battle off the
track in a boxing match.
Earnhardt Jr. also seemed
to be hitting the skids as he
once again finished 43rd for
the second straight week.
He needed almost 30 minutes
to cool off before coming out
to speak to reporters. This
was all due to the tap he re-
ceived from Dave Blaney.
Third in the Nextel Cup


points only two weeks ago,
Earnhardt Jr. slipped to 11th
position, just one spot out of
the qaulifying top 10 spots.
As for the winner, Hamlin
didn't seem to have to con-
tend with all the drama on
the track or with the other
"top dog" drivers. He led for
151 of the 200 laps.
Hamlin now ranks eighth
in the point standings and
becomes the sixth driver to
sweep the Pocono race, both
times starting from the pole.


Woods wins with memories of dad


By CHUCK HINSON
It has been a rough year for
Tiger Woods. He has
struggled with his game, has
not been able to take home a
trophy, and has been dealing
with the loss of his father
who passed away in May.


Despite all the press and
the personal problems,
Sunday's victory at the Brit-
ish Open Golf Championship
changed everything for him.

Michael Curry, formerly an
assistant at Okaloosa-Walton
College in Niceville, has been
named assistant men's bas-
ketball coach at Troy Univer-
sity. Curry replaces William
Small, who accepted a simi-
lar position at Tulane this
spring.
Tallahassee Maclay plans
to become the next school in
Leon County to add football
to their athletic
roster. Maclay, which is a pri-
vate school that has never
fielded a football team, has
hired Jeff Schaum to be the
school's first head coach.
Plans call for the school to
field their first varsity team
for the 2007 season. Schaum
has worked at both Jefferson
County and Quincy Monroe
as a head coach with limited


success. Maclay joins Talla-
hassee John Paul II as the
latest pair of schools to get in-
volved in football.
Fox Sports, the new media
distribution home of the Bowl
Championship Series, an-
nounced a four-
year agreement last week
with ESPN Radio that grants
the sports radio network the
terrestrial radio rights to
broadcast all FOX-televised
BCS games. The deal does not
include satellite rights, nor
does it provide ESPN Radio
with exclusivity in the home
markets of schools participat-
ing in the games. The contract
does, however, grant
ESPN Radio the right to air
the Allstate Sugar Bowl,
FedEx Orange Bowl, Tostitos
Fiesta Bowl and the newly
created BCS National Cham-
pionship Game beginning in


January 2007. ESPN Radio,
which began broadcasting all

marks the first year Fox will
televise three BCS games
and the BCS National Cham-
pionship Game after agreeing
on an exclusive deal back in
November 2004.
The NFL Network signed
a multiyear deal with the

their, and that he was once
again back in the game.
Woods won the game with
a two-shot victory over Chris
DiMarco. He finished the day
18-under-par.
Woods was reportedly
much calmer this past week-
end than he was at the Mas-
ters, where observers say he
just tried too hard. At the
British Open, however, he
came to win and nothing
would get in his way.
Woods was running his
record 11-0 in the majors
when he had the lead going
into the final round. That
was until DiMarco. closed
within one shot, due to a mix-
ture of birdies and a 50-foot
par save.
Despite DiMarco's impres-
sive attempts, Woods fired
back with three straight bird-
ies to knock DiMarco back
into second place where he
finished for the tournament.
With this past weekend's
win, Woods now ties with
Walter Hagen for second on
the career list. It also puts
Woods one step closer to the
18 professional majors won
by current record-holder
Jack Nicklaus.

Tour de France


By CHUCK HINSON
It seemed strange not see-
ing seven-time Tour de
France winner Lance
Armstrong taking the vic-
tory lap, champagne in
hand, Instead;, another
American, Flpyd.r Landis,
peddled his way into the
winner's circle and into the
hearts of those attending the
Paris event.
In one of the most interest-
ing Tours de France in recent
history, the arthritic Landis
held up and held on for a vic-
tory lap on the cobblestones
of .the Champs-Elysees. He
said that despite the pain, he
never let his arthritis get the
best of him.
It was a much different
outcome last week as the
American rider tried to use
techniques by Armstrong,
only to have his plans fall to
pieces. During the race in the
Alps, he was unable to com-
plete the final climb on Stage
16, giving up first. place and
slipping to eighth position.
Most had written him off,
thinking that U.S. domina-


tion of the sport would end
now that Landis had fallen
into eighth place and with
Armstrong out of the picture.
That all changed the very
next day when Landis re-
grouped and got back up on
the two-wheeled beast.
, He rebounded, closing the
timing gap by only 30 sec-
onds. His athleticism was so
astounding that team race
leader Jean-Marie LeBlanc
said that in his 18 years of
overseeing the race, he had
never witnessed such deter-
mination. He considered
Landis' performance to be the
best he has ever witnessed.
Landis, who hails from
Pennsylvania, finished the
race in front of Spain's Os-
car Pererio who finished sec-
ond. Germany's Andreas
Kloeden came in thrid.
With the victory, Landis
becomes only the third
American to take home the
prestigious Tour de France
award, behind seven-time
winner Lance Armstrong and
three-time winner Greg
LaMond.

ate ligament with cartilage
damage in his left knee in No-
vember, should be ready to go
in 2006. The former
Pensacola Washington player
is listed as the backup at
strong linebacker to Brain
Crum heading into the fall.
Jim Tartt, a redshirt
sophomore who played his
high school football at
Wakulla, is expected to start
for the Gators at left guard in
2006. Tartt played in four
games last season with three
starts but saw his season
come to an end with a shoul-
der injury that required sur-
gery after the Mississippi
State game. The 6-3, 315-
pound lineman figures sub-
stantially in the Gators offen-
sive line plans this season.
Though Cornelius Ingram
doesn't come from this region,
it is important to point out
that he was the starting quar-
terback for Hawhtorne, a


team that faced Walton twice
during his high school career.
Ingram, who was originally
signed as a quarterback by
Florida, was moved to tight
end last season and had an
outstanding performance in


the spring game. Ingram, a 6-
4, 225-pound redshirt sopho-
more, will definitely figure in
the mix at receiver in 2006
and will give Florida quarter-
back Chris Leak another tar-
get in the Gators offense.

S.W. Fire District gets green light for 91


By Dotty Nist
"We resolved any issues,"
said Walton County Admin-
istrator Ronnie Bell, regard-
ing a request by the South
Walton Fire District for an
amendment to Walton
County's 911 plan.
The requested amendment
was one to create a new sec-
ondary public safety answer-
ing point (PSAP) in Walton
County which would allow
911 calls involving services
provided by the South Wal-


ton Fire District (SWFD) to
be transferred to fire district
dispatchers after those calls
were received by county dis-
patchers at the Walton
County Emergency Opera-
tions Center (EOC) in DeFu-
niak Springs.
The change would not af-
fect calls for emergency aid
involving any other agency.
The SWFD is currently re-
sponsible for fire rescue and
emergency medical transport

After realizing that calls

season in

There are, at last counts,
29 threatened sea turtle
nests in Walton County. This
number is down slightly from
last year but experts are
excited about current nests.
I am happy with any and
all sea turtle nests," exclaims"
South Walton Turtle Watch
(SWTW) founder and
coordinator Sharon Maxwell.
Maxwell and other SWTW
volunteers search the beach
every morning for the telltale
signs of a female sea turtle
that has come ashore during
the previous evening. Once a
nesting sight has been
located volunteers flag and
monitor the nesting areas.

ferred to the SWFD dispatch-
ers, who were therefore un-
able to have any direct con-
tact with callers.
In contrast, there was no
technical problem in trans-
ferring calls to a PSAP oper-
ated by the Walton County
Sheriff's Department at its
Santa Rosa Beach facility.
A decision by the SWFD
board members to set up a
separate dispatch center
south of the bay was
prompted in large part by


this problem. Months ago the
SWFD had requested county
permission for the creation of
the secondary PSAP in con-
junction with plans to estab-
lish the call center on some
of their unused property near
the corner of U.S. 98 and CR-
393.
However, previously the
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) had turned down the
SWFD PSAP request, opting
to leave the 911 situation "as


1 plans

is."
On July 25, Bell reported
that all problems with the
SWFD request had beer

THIS MAP showing recently designated critical erosion areas along the central and east-
ern Walton County coastline and areas proposed for large-scale beach restoration was pre-
sented to the public at a beach nourishment workshop earlier this month.


County eyeing be


restoration along


By DOTTY NIST
Along the CR-30A corridor,
Walton County is considering
the addition of approxi-
mately 10 million cubic yards
of sand in several areas to-
taling about 12.9 miles in
length, using offshore sand
sources.
CR-30A residents heard
about the proposed project at
a July 13 workshop at the
Baytowne Wharf Conference
Center hosted by the South
.* i Walton Tourist Development
Council (TDC). The TDC's
role in this regard is project
management, facilitation
.. and funding of beach resto-
ration projects through tour-
ist bed tax funding and other
sources such as grants.
Comments from citizens
revealed sentiments ranging
from very positive to wanting
the restoration work done
"yesterday."
"I'm 100 percent behind
this," said Walton County
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows, who was
present at the gathering.
Meadows pledged to do ev-
erything possible to make the
project a reality.
Mike Trudnak, an engineer
with Taylor Engineering, the
county's beach nourishment
< engineering contractor, noted
that the state recently des-
ignated 14.3 miles of Walton
County's 25.3 mile coastline
...... as critically eroded as a re-
sult of hurricane and storm
'aded to the impacts.
This includes the approxi-


mately five miles on the west
end that is part of an ongo-
ing large-scale beach restora-
tion project. That project is
on hold by order of federal
officials due to the resulting
loss of four federally pro-
tected sea turtles. Work on
the west end beaches could
resume as soon as October
but may be delayed until the
gulf waters are cooler and
fewer sea turtles are present.
Along CR-30A, work is be-
ing proposed in four sections
spanning seven designated
critical erosion areas. In or-
der to create longer stretches
of restored beachfront in the
interest of increased storm
worthiness of the product,
the TDC is proposing the in-
clusion of some areas not des-
ignated as critically eroded
and some state park property
lying between and adjacent
to the critically eroded areas.
Matching state funding is
expected to be available for
the critically eroded areas
but not for the other areas or
the parks. Permission of park
officials will also be required
for restoration to take place
there.
TDC consultants have
identified three areas at least
a mile offshore from the
Sandesti./Topsail, Eastern
Lake and Camp Creek areas,
ancient inundated beaches
that are expected to provide
the necessary amount of
beach qualtiy sand for the
restoration project along CR-
30A.


sach


CR-30A
Detailed sand source inves-
tigation is planned in the
three areas, with 100
samples being taken 1,000
feet apart.
Total cost for the restora'-
tion project along CR-30A is
estimated at $50-60 million.
Plans are for the work to be
funded through a combina-
tion of bed tax funding;,
grants, and bonding or fi-
nancing, with the portion of
the bed tax designated for
beach nourishment used as
a revenue stream.
The project is expected-to
take a year to complete.
While permitting for the
western Walton County res-
toration project took over two
years, state Department of
Environmental Protectiion
officials have pledged to ei-
pedite permitting for the pro-
posed new project.
The next step for the OR-
30A beach restoration project
will be a public hearing be-
fore the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners, which has not been
scheduled at this time. *
Sand sampling for the
project is ongoing.

agement director for tlie
TDC, encourages residents fo

Question: I bought a boat from someone in Alabama. The seller
says that Alabama does not title boats. What do I need to get it
titled in Florida?


The facts: Florida is a title state. The State of Alabama, as well as several
other states, does not title boats, so the registration is the ownership docu-
ment. In order for Florida to title a boat from a "registration only" state, the
original registration and an executed (signed) bill of sale from the registered
owner must be presented to the Tax Collector's Office, along with an applica-
tion for Florida Title, sales tax and title and registration fees. In the event that
the original out of state registration has been lost or destroyed, a letter from
that state's motor vehicle or vessel division verifying the owner of record
would be acceptable, along with a bill of sale.

No Serenity at the

Gulf at planning

commission


By Leah Stratmann
A proposed project to build
three multi-family units on
0.54 acres of neighborhood
planning/infill property on
the south side of County Road
30A, in Seacrest was the topic
of much rancorous discussion
at the July 13 meeting of the
planning commission.
Acting on behalf ofA, LLC,
Dean Burgiss of Emerald
Coast Associates, Inc. re-
quested approval of the ma-
jor development which would
have put a three-unit condo-
minium in the midst of a
number of single family
dwellings.
Ken Vogel who lives across
the street from the proposed
project addressed the com-
missioners about lack of no-
tice being given to the neigh-
bors about the planning com-
mission meeting, saying he
was taking a walk and found
the posted sign or would not
have been aware of the meet-
ing at all. He asked the com-
missioners for a continuance.
Sharon Logue Higgins also
addressed the commissioners
for an extended period of
time, pointing out that she
has been objecting to the
project since February be-
cause she lives next door to
the proposed project.
"The whole process has
been unfriendly to us as resi-7
dcfents. The neighborhood
miYeeting provided no speciltics
and was conducted solely by
Burgiss. I've been frustrated
with my inability to speak
with Tim Brown of planning.
I only knew of this meeting
because I also saw a sign dur-
ing a walk. This project would
have a huge impact on us as
permanent residents next
door. We have been objecting
and have never been able to
have a comprehensive way to
present our objections. This
project is not compatible with
the neighborhood. Seacrest


dwellings take up less than
half of the build-able space
per lot," she said.
Anita Page, executive di-
rector of the South Walton
Community Council told the
commissioners that just be-
cause a tract of land is desig-
nated infill, doesn't mean to
just fill it up with something.
That something should be
compatible with the existing
neighborhood.
Although the project had
been cleared by county plan-
ners according to the land use
codes, Pat Blackshear, direc-
tor of planning said, "I do
think it is too close to the
single family dwellings. I
have serious reservations
about this being only 15-feet
from another house."
Burgiss responded to
Blackshear's comments by
pointing out that for every
story of the project, there was
an additional 10-foot setback
in addition to the ordinary
setback. Burgiss noted that
the Higgins home is four sto-
ries tall and very similar in
structure to the proposed
units. Further, he said his
company notified everyone
within 400 feet of the project,
,even though the county code
only mandates notification
within 300 feet.
When the discussion was
closed, commissioner Tom,
Patton noted that the project'
was presented with "the'
worst graphics I have ever
seen."
Commissioner Sally
Merrifeld concurred, saying
she found the graphic repre-
sentation hard to interpret
and asked Emerald Coast
Associate's for a better site
plan and making a motion to
that effect. The motion was
seconded and passed unani-
mously. The issue will be con-
tinued until the next meeting
of the planning commission
on Aug. 0lat 5 p.m.

Transportation authority meets in Walton County


r,
MEMBERS OF THE Northwest Florida Transportation Corridor Authority met recently
in Walton County.


By Jeffrey Powell
"This is a 250 mile project
and we have to look at the big
picture," stressed Northwest
Florida Transportation
Corridor (NFTC) Chairman
Randall McElheney.
The NFTC has the
daunting responsibility of
creating a master plan to
improve traffic flow on U.S. 98
and adjacent roadways
throughout the panhandle.
The eight-member governor
appointed board was in
Walton County to discuss the
project on July 20.
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners Ro
Cuchens, Kenneth Pridgen
and Scott Brannon were on
hand to welcome the
authority and to provide any
assistance necessary.
Among suggestions
discussed during the meeting
was the possibility of a
Bluewater Bay to Navarre
bypass of Niceville and Fort
Walton Beach through Eglin
Air Force Base reservation
property. Final approval for
this option would have to
come from Air Force officials.
Also encouraging was the
allocation of $40 million to
speed up four laning on U.S.
331 north of the Clyde B.
Wells Bridge. Commissioner
Cuchens pointed out the need
for Walton County to improve
hurricane evacuation time,
which is currently over 28
hours. U.S. 331 is the only
north/south artery leading
out of southern Walton
County.
The NFTC has until July
1, 2007 to submit their plan
to the state legislature.

With all the devel-
opment throughout
Walton County,
there are those who
still want to preserve
the area's nature.
Tours will offer a
look into the natural
settings of the Emer-
ald Coast.

A county that was once
lush with deep wooded areas,
hidden lakes and streams
and overrun with wildlife,
has now seen a complete
change of scenery. From the
pristine waters of the Gulf, to
the springs of north Walton
County, more and more natu-
ral aspects of the county and
surrounding areas are being
developed and built'up for
the influx of tourists and new
residents that are making
Walton County their vaca-
tion and residential destina-
tion.
This' problem has been
brewing for more than two
decades, but only in the past
five of six years has the situ-
ation become obvious.
Nature seems to have
taken a backseat to luxury
condos and high-rises. Ani-
mals have been pushed from
their homes to make room
for humans.
Of course, some properties
have set up sanctuaries and
preserves for the misplaced
critters, but their natural
habitats are nevertheless be-
ing disturbed. It is like mov-
ing a tribe of American Indi-
ans to a reservation far from
their homeland and expect-
ing them to just pick up right
where they left off in their old
surroundings.
Developers have run into
many issues and obstacles
presented by the govern-
ment, environmentalists, ac-
tivists and other developers.
The more they build, the
more bad press they seem to
get. It is a constant battle be-
tween developers and envi-
ronmentalists, with no clear
answer in the near future.
But one organization has
taken the responsibility of
trying to educate both sides
of the issue. It is Topsail Pre-
serve State Park, and its an-
nual lectures and demonstra-
tions on the local environ-
ment.
The series of lectures will
be an educational experience
about our natural surround-
ing, and also be an opportu-
nity to learn about our his-
tory, including World War II.

From August 5-8, Topsail
Tours will take visitors on a
journey through our past and
suggest ways by which we
can shape and preserve our
future. The four-day event
will highlight nature and
history in this area and the
effects it has had abroad.
On August 5 there will be
a lecture on a "burning" is-
sue for many residents: the
dry season and controlled
fires. The lecture will focus on
the need for prescribed fires
in Florida, including our
state parks. This lecture will
be useful to anyone wanting
to learn more about ways in
which fire can help our wood-
lands and the benefits it can
provide in our future.
August 12 will be a history
lesson unlike any other.
Modern warfare has shifted
from reliance on ground
troops to missiles. People
will be able to learn about
the history of missile devel-
opment taking place here in
Walton County. Ranger Curt
M1oore will present a slide
show on the subject at Top-
sail Hill Preserve State Park.
On August 19, the entire
family can enjoy an inspiring
and educational program,
the "Duke's Quest" puppet
show. Follow Duke the Deer
in his quest to find the Beach
Mice and his delivery of a
very important message
from the park ranger.
The puppet show will take
all ages on an adventure, and
teach facts about deer, bob-
cats, opossums, raccoons,
eagles, hawks, coyotes, foxes,
sea turtles, green horned
owls and beach mice. It's a
chance to learn about those
largely unseen indigenous
animals that make up a big
part of Walton County's ani-
mal population.
The final Saturday of the
month will send chills up
your spine with thoughts of
slithery creatures. The lec-
tures and demonstrations
will be about native snakes.
The class will feature fas-
cinating facts and misconcep-
tions about native snakes
commonly seen in the Topsail
Preserve Park and around
the area. Ranger Daniel Bur-
ton will host an interactive
discussion focusing on many
of the snakes found in
Florida.
All programs will take
place at the Day-Use building
located on CR-30A. Each lec-
ture begins at 9:15 a.m. and
costs $2 per person to attend.
For more information, call
the Topsail Preserve at 267-

PLANS

FROM FRONT


Johnson.
Johnson had raised objec-
tions and concerns about the
SWFD PSAP when the re-
quest was made some
months earlier.
Bell said the SWFD plan
was "well explained" and that
all the parties were now on
the same page.
Bell's recommendation,
which was made as an "add-
on" at the July 25 BCC meet-
ing, was specifically to
amend the county's 911 plan
to create the new SWFD
PSAP.
He requested the approval
of a motion to send the plan
to the state for approval.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows made that
motion and approval was
unanimous.


BUSINESSES ALONG CR-30A have built parking spaces that encroach on the public.".
right of way and patrons often block the path with vehicles which violates a county ordi-',
nance.'Enforcement of the ordinance is typically waived by the sheriff's office, much to the'
confusion of the multi-use path.




Lack of ordinance




enforcement

By Leah Stratmann

Members of the Friends of
the Timpoochee Trail, the 18-
mile long multi-use track
that meanders though south
Walton County, will be quick
to tell you the trail is in the
best shape it has been in for
years. The one bone of con-
tention that cannot seem to
be ironed out to the satisfac-
tion of trail users is the ut-
ter disregard of posted no-
tices specifically saying that
parking on the path is pro-
hibited by county ordinance.
Not only do motorists of all
kinds routinely block the
path, the Friends are frus-
trated by the county sheriff's
office refusal to enforce the
ordinance.
On June 6, members of the
group met with Capt. Danny
Glidewell of the sheriff's of-
fice with a laundry list of de-
tails and photographic evi-
dence of ordinance violations.
They asked how many cita-
tions have been issued for on'
the path parking and they
are still waiting for that an-
swer and a few others they
posed.
The same question was
posed to Capt. Glidewell by
this newspaper on Tuesday
and once again Glidewell did
not have any statistics to of-
fer. He said, "We are doing
everything we can to enforce
county ordinances and state
law. I don't know how many
tickets have been issued," he
said.
Glidewell also said he did
not know what the financial
penalty was for receiving
such a ticket. "We have in-
structed our officers to en-
force the law, but they are
allowed discretion on the
job," he said.
Friends' member Dan
McClary is concerned about
the lack of visibility of law
enforcement along CR-30A
as well.
"On July 6, I was on a six-
hour tour of the path with
public works and the com-
pany hired to maintain the
path. In that six-hour period
I saw one deputy go by and
they drove right by a brick
delivery truck parked on the
path. I called the non-emer-
gency number to report the
truck and a deputy came out
within 10 minutes.
The deputy then found the


person who had parked the
truck and said she told them
to move it. Fifteen minutes
later the truck was still
parked there. We got the lec-
ture about discretionary use
of warnings and tickets, but
at some point, compassion
has to stop and tickets need
to be issued. People are not
going to take this seriously
until tickets are issued,"
McClary said.
McClary said he asked
Glidewell about the patrol
pattern of officers assigned in
the south part of the county
and was told that each officer
toured CR-30A once in each
eight hour period. "We would
like more visibility than that.
Once in eight hours during
the height of the tourist sea-
son is not enough.
Last week when I was on
an early morning ride, I saw
a motorcycle deputy chatting
with an Alys Beach security
guard for a long period of
time. This was morning drive
time and he was chatting. I.
don't understand it," he com-
mented. "How can you only
see one deputy in a six-hour
period at the height of the
tourist season?" he queried.
Further, earlier in July,
only 20 percent of the five
deputies assigned to the area
were on duty, even with the
heavy influx of tourists. Two
deputies were in a traffic
school in Panama City and
the third was on vacation.
Glidewell said his office
didn't have any control over
when the school had classes
and that deputies, like every-
one else, want to take vaca-
tion in the summer with
their families. He didn't com-
ment on why all this took
place with thousands of ex-
tra people in the community
on vacation.
Glidewell seemed genu-
inely confused that the
Friends are still concerned
about safely. "I know Sgt.
Preston has been in contact
with Dan," he said. McClary
said that was true, but that
he was the one who initiated
the contact.
"We are between a rock and
hard place," Glidewell said.
"We are trying to work with
all parties and do the right
thing for all concerned. The
developers are mad at us and
McClary is mad at us be-
cause we haven't put every-


one in jail," he said. "We are..-
trying to work on the golf cart
deal too, which is a pretty`
serious issue."
McClary said that safety is,,
at the forefront of concerns:.
for he and his group. "Some-',
one is going to be seriously:'
hurt and the county is going,
to be seriously sued," he said..,
"I just don't understand why',
the ordinance cannot be en-`'
forced."
Overall however, McClary"
said he is grateful for the?
county's public works and'"
planning departments re-''
sponse to the path andi
pointed there has been mores-
progress in the last 90 days
than there has in years and'
pointed to the following!
achievements:
The major repair project is!
finished (at a cost of around
$150,000), and there are very.
few cutouts and holes in the,;
path,rm,eaning the path is.:
muchrsafer.
"The maintenance cont ra ct
was'signed and the contraL-:
tor started about three weeks,.
ago (at a cost of $237,000 a.
year'i. 'We believe this is a,
greaf investment in the ex-'"
isting infrastructure," he
said.
"The Friends were added to
the Technical Review Com-:
mittee to allow us to review'
plans in hopes of preventing.
safety hazards and construc-4
tion that may adversely af-'
fect the paths.
"The Friends spent several.
hours touring the path with,
Public Works and the main;:
tenance contractor to identify
priorities recently. Action,
items were documented and.
progress is being made. The.
Code Enforcement and De!
velopment Order Inspections,
departments have taken ac-,
tion on many issues we've
identified; Commissioner
Meadows asked for our input'
on the signage consultant,
proposals and invited us to.
attend a meeting with each?
vendor for further discus-
sions," he said.
"Many developers have re-
sponded favorably to our sug-
gestions and have adjusted
their sprinklers to run dur-
ing the night, repaired holes1
cleaned the path daily of dirt,
sand and gravel and are
keeping their employees' ve-
hicles off the path," he said.

THESE CHURCH MEMBERS get a look at the artist's rendering of the new Good News
United Methodist Church in Santa Rosa Beach.


Good things happening


at Good News


By ROBIN NEWTON
Driving east on Hwy. 98
from Miramar Beach, motor-
ists will soon be noticing the
construction on the new
building at Good News
United Methodist Church in,
Santa Rosa Beach. After
years of "praying and plan-,
ning," the site is being
graded and prepared for the
construction to begin around
Aug. 1.
The multi-functional build-
ing will have a 450-person
seating capacity in its sanc-
tuary to allow for traditional
and contemporary worship
services, as well as drama


SEASON
there. Dougless' concerns for
the sea turtles include the
amount of plastic products
found on the beach. "The
public could help us out by
reducing their litter," said
Dougless. Plastic baggies are
sometimes mistaken for food
by the sea turtle and become


presentation and concerts.
Another facet is the nurs-
ery and children's area which
will meet the state's re-
quirements for a pre-school
and/or day care center at the
church in the future.
The additional space is
needed for ministries which
the church has begun imple-
menting and planning after
a study of area demograph-
ics with regard to projected
growth and statistical data.
Pastor Randy Greene says
that the ministries are to
serve not only the people liv-
ing in the Santa Rosa Beach
area at present, but also


those persons who will be
moving to this area, as well
as snowbirds and other visi-
tors.
To that end, Brian Crook,
director of youth ministries,
was added at Good News. A
director of children's minis-
tries has also been added,
making their ministry to
youth and children a priority
of the church.
Rev. Greene said, "Good
things are happening at
Good News, which will cel-
ebrate its 10-year anniver-
sary in October. Everyone is
invited to come and see."

lodged in the throat.
Other concerns are
increased development,
which brings with it lighting
issues and newly constructed
seawalls. "Seawalls effect sea
turtle nesting areas,"
stressed Maxwell.
Citizens are asked to


please keep a reasonable
distance from marked sea
turtle nests and if walking at
night use red LED
flashlights that do not
disturb the nesting process.
Sea turtle hatchlings will
be emerging from their nests
from now until the end of
October.
