Sheriff looking to


discontinue dispatch



services for DFS police


By Bruce Collier
A representative of Wal-
ton County Sheriff's Office'
(WCSO) has reportedly noti-
fied the DeFuniak Springs
mayor and city manager
that Sheriff Ralph Johnson
would like the city to take
over dispatch services for the
DeFuniak Springs Police De-
partment (DFSPD), within a
"reasonable" amount of time.

DeFuniak Springs City
Manager Kim Presnell con-
firmed that a representative
of WCSO met with her and
Mayor Harold Carpenter on
or around July 13 to convey
the sheriff's wishes.
DFSPD Chief Mike
Adkinson said that he him-


self did not receive notice, but
learned of the sheriffs inten-
tions after the city govern-
ment was notified.
"They [WCSO] did not di-
rectly tell me," he said. Nev-
ertheless, he is treating it as
official.
Adkinson said that he be-
lieves that the dispatch ser-
vice will terminate around
November 25 of this year.
Presnell said that no spe-
cific dates have been men-
tioned, nor was anything
submitted in writing.
Presnell noted that the
November 25 date is that of
the original one-year con-
tract under which the sher-
iff provides dispatch service
for DFSPD. That contract


commenced on November 25,
1980, and has been renew-
able on that date every year
since.
"The timing for ,this was
not too good," said Adkinson.
DFSPD is currently in the
middle of budget prepara-
tions, and Adkinson was
looking to hire additional
staff, as well as purchase ve-
hicles. Still, he admits that
this was not unforeseen.
"We saw it as an eventu-
ality, just not this short a
time."
DFSPD has several op-
tions, said Adkinson, both of
which will cost additional
money.
The first is for DFSPD to
implement its own dispatch


service, as part of a long term
plan to offer 24-hour service
including an open lobby with
an officer on duty around the
clock.
The second would involve
working with Walton County
Emergency Operations Cen
ter (EOC) in DeFunial
Springs. Either option, saic
Adkinson, has its advantages
and drawbacks.
In the meantime, Presnel
said that she is exploring
what she can get in writing
from WCSO and the county
as to their plans, whatever
happens.

At press time, no one at
WCSO could be reached foi
comment.


By Dotty Nist
Potential danger during
the evening at well-traveled
but unlighted rural inlersec-
tions has been a concern fdor
the public.--The Walton
County commissioners re-
cently reacted to that con-
cern.
On July 25, the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (B3Cp) voted
unanimously to request
street lights at three dark
intersections.
The three intersections
are: U.S. 331 and Indian
Creek Road south of DeFu-
niak Springs; U.S. 331 and
Ramsey Branch Road south
of Freeport; and the Church
Street, S.R. 20, and Hwy. 81
intersection near Bruce.
County Administrator
Ronnie Bell will be contact-
ing CHELCO, the utility
company responsible for
street lights in the area of
the three intersections, with
the request.
For several months Bell
has been Walton County's li-
aison with CHELCO on this
matter, after being tasked by
the commissioners in March
with discussing with the util-
ity company the process for
getting street lights placed
at dangerous roads and inter-
sections.
BCC Chairman Scott
Brannon has taken an active
role in improving lighting at

Cemetery .. d


submits revised


ordinance


By Leigh Strickland
At its quarterly meeting
on Tuesday, July 25,
the DeFuniak Springs
Cemetery Board reviewed a
draft ordinance created at its
last meeting. The
ordinance, if approved by the
DeFuniak Springs City
Council, will replace the
current guidelines for the
city's Magnolia Cemetery.
Board members made
minor changes in the
wording of the document for
the clarity of definitions
within the ordinance.
Other changes proposed
and approved at the
meeting will require funeral
directors to give the city
notice no less than eight
hours prior to a funeral.
Also, costs incurred by
funeral arrangements
requiring city workers to
a work overtime are to be paid
, by the funeral home.
"I think this is a good
e ordinance that we've come
up with," Mayor Harold
e Carpenter said.

The draft ordinance is now
to be submitted to the city
council for approval.
City Manager Kim
Presnell said she is looking
into contracting with Walton
County ,ARC for the'
maintenance of the cemetery.'
She is also looking int&
permit fees for monumentsr
placed at grave sites.
Sara Bowers, finance
director forthe city, gave
a revenues and expenses'
report for the cemetery. A4.
of July 21, she said, revenues
were $24,800 and
expenses were $88,500. They
are, she said, three-fourths of
the way through the budge
year.
The only comments mad
by the public at th'
meeting came from Jim
Hayes, whose son is buried ii
the new section of the
cemetery. He spoke of a need
for better maintenance in the
cemetery. He would like to
see trees trimmed and the
grass mowed more
frequently.


DFS council


sets millage rate


By Leigh Strickland
In a special meeting of the
DeFuniak Springs City
Council Monday after-noon,
a tentative millage rate
was adopted for next year.
This rate, to be 4.5, will
next be certified to the
Walton County property
appraiser.
According to city attorney
Clayton Adkinson, a rollback
rate of 3.9 could be adopted
to bring in the same amount
of money as last year,
$762,726. The tentative rate
as set at 4.5 would bring in


.about $879,000, approxi-
mately $125,000 more than
last year.
"We'll need that much at
least for the police
department," Council-man
Don Harrison said.
Councilman Mark Atn'
person asked, "Do you think
we can do it at 4.5?" ;
"I think we can," City
Manager Kim Presnell said.
The 4.5 rate was approved
by the council and the
date for the first public
hearing has been set
for September 14 at 6 p.m.


Kemberly Ramer disappearance

FBI search yields


no results, but


possible leads


THIS INTERSECTION south of Freeport is one of three in Walton County for which the
Board of County Commissioners is requesting a street light in the interest of public safety.


problem intersections. It was
at Brannon's request that
the matter of the three inter-
sections was brought up at
the July 25 BCC meeting.
Brannon said he had re-
ceived a number of calls from
the public about the danger
of the intersections during


evening hours.
Susan Burgess, Walton
County District 1 adminis-
trative assistant, commented
on Tuesday that these inter-
sections are places where
many people turn off from
the main road and that light-
ing there would be both help-


ful to motorists and condu-
cive to safety.
She also noted that, in the
case of the two roads inter-
secting with U.S. 331, light-
ing would heighten the
awareness of motorists that
they are approaching this
major route.


By Bruce Collier
An FBI search of a sink-
hole north of Argyle last
week yielded "negative re-
sults" fior any evidence or re-
mains in the Kemberly
Ramer investigation, says
Craig Dahle, spokesman for
the FBI's Mobile office.
The 16-year-old Ramer
disappeared from her home
in Opp on August 15, 1997.
Investigators have treated
the case as a likely kidnap-
ping/homicide.
This most recent search
effort was prompted by an
anonymous telephone call
made in April to the Opp Po-
lice Department (OPD).


A joint investigation by
OPD and FBI dive teams led
to a three-day search of a
sinkhole, located on private
property about four miles
north of Hwy. 90 at Argyle..'
Dahle confirmed that the
search yielded nothing, but
added that the effort did gen-
erate some "possible leads"
that are being pursued, de-
clining to elaborate further.

FBI special agent Alan
Ducote, in charge of Ramer's
investigation, said that the
anonymous tipster had
claimed to know the identity
of the perpetrator, but hung
up without giving it.


Jones seeks school

board district 5 seat


Neale announces

school board candidacy


Jerry Jones, a supporter of
students, is seeking the office
of Walton County School
Board District 5. Jones is
seeking this office because he
wants to see students suc-
ceed. Jones says he has no
personal agenda for wanting
this position, and has no
business ties that would be
enhanced by his position on
the board. He says he simply
believes that Walton County
students, as all students, de-
serve to be successful in their
educational endeavors and
believes that it is the stake-
holders' responsibility to cre-
ate the atmosphere for their
success.
Jones says he believes in
the importance of education,
so while previously serving
on the board, he put in action


a plan to help college-bound
. students with scholarships.
Jones sponsored scholar-
ships for 54 deserving stu-
dents from every high school
in Walton County. When
elected, he plans to give ad-
ditional scholarships out of
his salary to help students
and families meet the cost of
beginning college tuition and
expenses.
Jerry and his wife, Cecilia,
live in south Walton County
on West Ann Street. Cecilia,
a teacher for t -'ty-three
years, currently a-rks with

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


PERSONAL COMMENTS



EDITOR'S COMMENT



Reach out and touch someone


By RON KELLEY

As an editor, I appreciate the concept of irony.
A perfect example of that concept can be found in the fact
that we live in a world of almost instantaneous contact with
every other part of the world, yet we are becoming increas-
ingly isolated.
We don't talk to each other anymore. We e-mail instead.
We fax. We text message, we blog, we use My Space, we have
Blackberries. Our phones beep, trill and play jingles. We talk,
but we don't see each other. We can communicate better now
than we ever have in the history of the world, yet we speak
face to face to fewer people than ever before. Can the extinc-
tion of the art of conversation be far off?
Accoi dinii to author Debra Fine, shorthand communica-
tion leaves us all shortchanged, especially young people. "A




Editi',r
There is a drug and alcohol abuse problem seething
through this country. Victim by victim, family after family,
it is tc aring our civilization to shreds. Who hasn't heard talk
of friends and families tragic and often losing battles with
substance abuse, for themselves, their children or their
children's children.
What is sadder, more horrific to consider is there seems to
be no cure. No way out for the afflicted millions, except prison
or death.
When my mom called to tell me my little sister, baby of
the family, with two beautiful daughters, had been arrested
with a large amount of methamphetamine, I was terrified
for her. But what could I do? What could anyone do?
We raised money for bail. We hired an attorney. We
searched the internet, the phone book, and we asked friends
for help finding a treatment program.
To our surprise most programs were enormously expen-
sive and very short term. We knew she needed more.
Then we heard of a program with over 70% success rate.
We were skeptics by now, but called anyway.
They told me that the program did not have any set time
but that they would help my sister in treatment until she
and they knew she could live a productive life without drugs.
They told me how remnants of drugs and alcohol could lodge
in fatty tissue and how they might be removed. They told
me how their legal liaison would work with the courts and
our attorney.
They told me they could give my little sister her life back,
and then, just as they promised, they did.
This organization of angels in disguise is called.Narconon,
Arrowhead. If you or someone you love needs help, call 1-
866-648-7609. You might even get to talk to my little sister,
Holly; she works there now.
If you do, remind her to straighten her halo, will you?

summer of constant instant messaging, 'face book' postings,
and e-mail often leaves the returning college student or en-
try-level employee lacking in the art of face-to-face conver-
sation skills. Although helpful and necessary tools in today's
education and business worlds, these technological advances
in communication have made Generations X and Y so reli-
ant on them that verbal and nonverbal skills may be in
danger. Once you've become accustomed to typing "btw" and
"lol," and creating smiley faces like (:-D), it can be daunting
to have to carry on an actual discussion. Generations X and
Y may find themselves in the habit of employing poor vo-
cabulary and grammar.".
It's not getting any easier. Our children are practically
born with input jacks behind their ears. They don't get to-
gether with other kids in the neighborhood and play out in
the fresh air anymore. Instead, they stay inside and play
Ghost Recon, Gears of War and Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow
on their Xbox, Playstation or Nintendo.
Fine says nonverbal skills also become compromised as a
result of a lack of face-to-face interaction. For some people,
90 percent of communication with others is via e-mail. People
have memorized the keys on their Blackberry, but they can't
tell you the color of their neighbor's eyes.
Lloyd Morrisette, speaking at an MIT conference, noted
that being able to talk from New York to California for 10
cents a minute or less, would have been unimaginable 50
years ago. "Yet with all their advantages, these technologies
have also exercised a'benevolent tyranny' over us. They have
favored passive reception of information and entertainment
over thoughtful reaction, and the telephone has favored
immediate response uver considered and deliberative re-
sponse," he said.
It is significant that we are called the "information soci-
ety"-not the thinking society, not the deliberative society,
not the society of reason and rationality. Frankly, despite
the vast array of communication devices we've created, I
tend to agree with actor Strother Martin's famous pro-
nouncement in Cool Hand Luke, "What we have here is a
failure to communicate."
The cure is simple. Put down your cell phone, turn off your
computer, get up and go visit that friend or neighbor. Jo-
seph Addison said, "What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are
to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered
along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable."
And as Debra Fine said, "You can't type a smile."




Editor,. : ..
On July 27, the Emerald CCoast AStiation of Realtors
hosted a candidate public forum at Freeport High School.
They are to be commended for providing this opportunity to'
the citizens of Walton County. But in order for democracy to.
work, it requires participation. The turnout to this impor-
tant forum was dismal at best.
Walton County is transitioning from a rural community
to a fast growing urban area. We have many issues that
must be addressed in the near future, infrastructure and
affordable housing, just to name a few.
Not only do we have incumbents running for re-election,
we have two open seats in Walton County government that
give the citizens the power to decide the future of the county.
Using these forums and those coming up in the future is an
excellent way for the voters to compare platforms and speak
personally to the candidates about their vision for the county.
The sheer size of Walton County is making it nearly im-
possible for each candidate to see every voter. So, please use
these forums to learn about the candidates and their issues
so that you may make an informed decision when you exer-
cise your right to freedom. And don't forget to vote, Sept. 5.
The future of Walton County is counting on you.

Dear Editor:

It's that time of year again for schools bells, backpacks,
and yellow buses. Most importantly, it's a time when chil-
dren are on our roads and sidewalks, eager to get to school.
This is an exciting time for both children and parents, and
we can all help to assure them a safe start to the school
year.
Drivers need to be extra cautious now that summer has
come'to an end. Thousands of children will be waiting at
school bus stops or walking and biking to school, often at
dawn when it can be particularly hard to see them. Statis-
tics show that one-fifth of all children age 14 and under who
die in motor vehicle crashes are pedestrians. Many of
these fatalities are children who run across the street, not
paying attention to oncoming vehicles.
Children are at a disadvantage because they are less vis-
ible to motorists. Children are also less capable than adults
of judging where and when it's safe to cross the street and
less likely to fully understand the consequences of their
potential misjudgments. Motorists need to keep this in mind
and pay extra attention so that we can keep the children
safe, not only in these first few critical weeks, but throughout
the entire school year.
AAA Auto Club South will be carrying out its annual
"School's Open Drive Carefully" educational campaign
throughout the months of August and September and AAA
School Safety Patrol members will be on full alert at schools
for dangerous situations. We ask that all motorists be on full
alert too. The best protection to avoid a fatal mistake is
for drivers to slow down. Every mile per hour you reduce
your speed allows for greater reaction time. This could be
the difference between life and death for a child that unex-
pectedly darts across the street. And that child could be
yours!
Whether it's the beginning, middle, or end of the year, al-
ways remember, "School's Open Drive Carefully."

Manager of Traffic Safety Programs

Editor,
I recently read this true story and felt strongly that it
seemed unnatural in the United States, but realized instead
that is has become truly representative of life in our "free"
country. Read and see if it rings as eerie to you as it did to
me...
"This statement was read over the PA system at a football
game at Roane County High School, Kingston, TN, by Prin-
cipal Jody McLoud:
'It has always been the custom at Roane County High
School football games to say a prayer and play the National
Anthem, to honor God and country.
'Due to a recent ruling by the Supreme Court, I am told
that saying a prayer is a violation of federal case law. As I
understand the law at this time, I can use this public facil-
ity to approve of sexual perversion and call it an "alterna-
tive lifestyle". If someone is offended, that's okay. I can use
it to condone sexual promiscuity by dispensing condoms and
call it "safe sex". If someone is offended, that's okay. I can
even use this public facility to present the merits of killing
an unborn baby as a "viable means of birth control." If some-
one is offended, no problem... I can designate a school day
as "Earth Day" and involve students in activities to worship
religiously and pray to the goddess "Mother Earth" and call
it "ecology." I can use literature, videos and presentations in
the classroom that depict people with strong, traditional
Christian convictions as "simple-minded" and "ignorant" and
call it "enlightenment." However, if anyone uses this facility
to honor God and to ask him to bless this event with safety
and good sportsmanship, then federal case law is violated.
This appears to be inconsistent at best and, at worst, dia-
bolical.
'Apparently, we are to be tolerant of everything and ev-
eryone, except God and His Commandments. Nevertheless,
as a school principal, I frequently ask staff and students to
abide by rules with which they do not necessarily agree; for
me to do otherwise would be inconsistent at best, and at
worst, hypocritical. I suffer from affliction enough uninten-
tionally. I certainly do not need to add an intentional trans-
gression. For this reason, I shall "render unto Caesar that
which is Caesar's," and refrain from praying at this time.
However, if you feel inspired to honor and praise and thank
God and ask Him, in the name of Jesus, to bless this event,
please feel free to do so. As far as I know that's not against
the law yet.'
One by one the people in the stands bowed their heads,
held hands with one another and began to pray. They prayed
in the stands. They prayed in the team huddles. They prayed
at the concession stand and they prayed in the announcer's
box. The one place they did not pray was the Supreme Court
of the United States of America the seat of justice in the
'One nation, under God.'
Somehow, Kinston, TN, remembered what so many have
forgotten, we are given the freedom of religion, not the free-
dom from religion. Praise God that his remnant remains!
Jesus said, "if you are ashamed of me before men, then I
will be ashamed of you before my father."
I remember when I could pray anywhere in public and
not be sued for offending someone. I remember it being not
only okay to worship God and pray, but rather a common
practice at every public event. I remember when majority
ruled, and decisions affecting our country were put to a vote.
Do you remember voting on this? Are we then still truly
free?,Remember, "All it takes for evil to succeed is for good
Smen to doi nothing."
Who is going to make a stand with me? I 'nt. to be'free.
What will you do?

Sacred Heart presents seminar

on hearing loss and hearing aids


More than one third of
Americans over age 60 suffer
from hearing loss, making it
one of the most common
health conditions affecting
older adults today. Although
more common as you age,
hearing loss can occur at any-
time in life and can be caused
by a variety of factors, includ-
ing exposure to noise, illness
and infection.
Dr. Sean McWilliams, an
otolaryngologist (ear, nose
and throat specialist), will
present a free seminar on
"Hearing Loss and the
LatestAdvancements" in
Hearing Aids. The seminar
will take place Wednesday,
Aug. 16 at 10 a.m. in Suite 3
of the new Resource Center
at Sacred Heart Hospital on
the Emerald Coast, which is
located in the west end of the
hospital's front parking lot.
The seminar will highlight
the different types of hearing
loss, ringing in the ear and
advances in hearing amplifi-
cation. Although the loss of


hearing is irreversible, there
are certain steps you can
take to increase your ability
to hear certain sounds and
thus increase your quality of
life.
Dr. McWilliams received
his bachelor degree from Au-
burn University and then ob-
tained his medical degree
from Tulane University
School of Medicine in New
Orleans. He completed a sur-
gical internship and four
years of residency training in
ear, nose and throat surgery
at the University ofAlabama
School of Medicine at Bir-
mingham.
This seminar is part of the
monthly series of free health
education programs spon-
sored by Sacred Heart "Se-
nior Spirit", a free program
for persons 55 and older.
Benefits include free screen-
ings, seminars, special in-pa-
tient benefits such as a free
daily guest meal ticket and
newspaper delivery, a
monthly calendar of events

THE DEFUNIAK HERALD BREEZE THURSDAY, AUGUST 3, 2006


AN OPEN LETTER TO THE WALTON

COUNTY COMMISSIONERS AND THE

CITIZENS OF WALTON COUNTY.

Agreed, an animal shelter would be a humane endeavor. Locating it
directly across from a subdivision where people live in single family
homes is not the place to put it. The shelter will have over 15,000
square feet, 80 open pens, and a 10,000 gallon water tank. It will have
3 drainage ponds and 2 huge septic tanks located on a steep sloping
hill. It will also have a 24/7 night drop off for unwanted animals without
a fail safe gate enclosure to prevent accidental escape of the animal.
Obviously, such an industrial looking facility would not be consistent
with the character of the neighborhood. But worst, think about 80 bark-
ing dogs, even half 40, even half of that 20 or even 10 barking dogs
across the street from your home. Not to mention the neighborhood
dogs joining in. The industrial looking building and compound does not
have a fence around it to prevent escape from within or intrusion from
without. Think about someone attempting to drop off an unwanted ani-
mal that may be vicious and it gets away from the person in the proc-
ess of attempting to drop the animal off and the animal heads right for
your yard while your children are playing on their own property. Or
think about the noise late at night from someone making a late night
drop off. Think about someone building an industrial size building or
smali strip mall across your home. Think about the added precarious
traffic from those working at the shelter or others traveling southbound
on Highway 331 attempting to make a left turn onto Rock Hill Road.
The rise of the road at that corner impedes your view to oncoming traf-
fic if you are attempting to turn left. You fear you will be rear ended or
hit by oncoming traffic. As we all know, any slight accident will tie traffic
up from Highway 98 to 1-10. The intersection already has had bad
accidents. While turn lanes will be installed someday, no traffic light is
planned. Think about an industrial like factory possibly jeopardizing
your drinking water from your well, or having the possible potential to
undermine wetlands.

The county owns other lands that this shelter can be placed on without
disturbing the peace. Having a shelter is a good thing. Placing the
shelter on the proposed Rock Hill Road location is not a good thing. It
exposes the county to all manner of legal, safety, social, and political
issues. For the good of everyone please act on our plea now, follow
the advice of the Walton County Planning Commission who denied
this location, and quickly find a better place for it. I will even volunteer
to help do so. Thank you.

"A government that does not protect its citizens so they may
enjoy their homes in peace fails at the very basic responsibility of
government."

By BRUCE COLLIER, '
DeFuniak Springs Police
(DFSPD) have arrested and
booked a 22-year-old DeFu-
niak Springs man on charges
of drug trafficking and as-
sorted possession charges.
DFSPD Capt. Mark Weeks
reported that Officer Joey
Ward was conducting a secu-
rity check of an abandoned
building on Beechwood Place
the evening of July 29, in re-
sponse to several complaints
of suspicious activity and pos-
sible drug activity.
Ward approached and saw
a man seated in a truck in
front of the abandoned build-
ing. The occupant's nervous
behavior led Ward to call for
a Walton County Sheriff's K-
9 unit. The K-9's external
search of the truck resulted
in a positive response for the
scent of illegal drugs.


A vehicle search yielded
23.8 grams of crack cocaine,
17.5 grams of powdered co-
caine, and 1.7 grams of mari-
juana.
The occupant, Mitchell
Sherod Reed of DeFuniak


Springs, was arrested and
booked for trafficking ihn co-
caine, possession of crack
with intent to distribute, pos-
session of crack, possession of
cocaine, and possession of
marijuana.

some live but malnourished
chickens. As with the hogs,
there was no evidence of food

Realtors hold political forum


FREWPORT ACREAGE,


WiuL SELL AT AUCTION


TO TfM HIGHEST BIDDER,


kOFAkCLESS OF NICE


By JEFFREY POWELL
The Emerald Coast Associa-
tion of Realtors recently held
a political forum to meet and
greet local candidates at
Freeport High School. The
July 27 forum gave citizens
the opportunity to speak with
candidates, first in an infor-
mal setting, and, also to at-
tend a more formal question
and answer session.
Local realtors Carol Lench,
Harry Millsaps and Judy
Rutland directed the ques-
tioning.
Current District 5 State
Representative Don Brown
(R) and opponent Toreatha
Hayes-Mitchell (WRI) re-
ceived questions concerning
Eglin Air Force Base's pos-
sible move to Edwards Air
Force Base of the 46th test
wing. Rep. Brown stressed his


desire to see. the test wing
remain at Eglin. Hayes-
Mitchell also expressed her
concern over local jobs.
Walton County Commis-
-sioner District 2 candidates
Herman Walker (R) and Ken-
neth Pridgen (R) and District
4 candidates Sara Comander
(R), Willa Hertwig (D), and
Harold Gene Ryan (R) were
also in attendance. Affordable
housing, potable water
sources and the future four-
laning of U.S. 331 were top
issues for this group of can-
didates.
Supervisor of elections can-
didate Ray Padgett (D) ex-
pressed his desire to see more
secure voting systems, sys-
tems that would provide each
voter with a paper receipt re-
flecting and verifying their
vote. Current Supervisor of


Elections Bobby Beasley (R)
was unable to attend the fo-
rum as he was training work-
ers for the upcoming election.
Candidates for Walton
County School Board Dis-
tricts 2, 3 and 5 were the last
to take the stage. Those vy-
ing for the non-partisan po-
sitions are District 2 incum-
bent William Laird and Rob-
ert Neal, District 3 candi-
dates Paul Davis, Sharon
Roberts, John Saltsman and
Twinette Thorn. District 5
incumbent Darrell Barnhill
and Jerry Jones.
FCAT testing and class
sizes were the dominant is-
sues for this group.
"We did not put the FCAT in
place and we are not going to
be able to get rid of it," candi-
date Thorn said. "Let's accept
it and move on."

Historic
Imogene
Theater back
in business
with Crimes
of the Heart

By BRUCE COLLIER
Following extensive reno-
vation for damage caused by
Hurricane Dennis, Milton's
historic Imogene Theater
will reopen with Crimes of
the Heart, Beth Henley's
Pulitzer-prize winning com-
edy/drama.
In the wake of the hurri-
cane, the resident theater
company, Imogene Little
Theatre (ILT), found itself
without a home.
ILT eventually changed
its name to Panhandle Com-
munity Theatre (PCT), and
continued to present plays in
local venues, often with
greatly limited space and pro-
duction facilities.
PCT president Rick Ready
said that Crimes of the Heart
is the first of two productions
scheduled at the Imogene for
the 2006 season.
Crimes of the Heart is the
story of three sisters living
in a small town in contem-
porary Mississippi. Each sis-
ter has her own sad, fre-
quently comic problems. A
touch of romance rounds out
the play.
Crimes of the Heart is di-
rected by Gail Ready, and the
cast features Clara Proctor,
Vicki Wright, Jennifer
Godwin, Leslee Young, Kurtis
von Krueger, and Andrew
Willard.
Performances are from
August 18 20, and August
25 27. Curtain is 7:30 p.m.
on Friday and Saturdays,
and 2:30 p.m. on Sundays.
All tickets are $12, and
may be reserved by e-mailing
Tennhawk45@aol.com, or by
calling 850-983-7764.

W o w% EVENTS around the South


Where does it all
end and who really
benefits from beauty
pageants? Is it all
about the smiles and
tears, or is it more
for the mothers than
the daughters?

America, especially the
South, is obsessed with
beauty pageants and beauty
queens. From the time the
child is wheeled out of the de-
livery room at the hospital,
they are taught how to give
an interview and how to
wear a crown without it slip-
ping off during the official
parade hand gestures.
Pageants have seen an in-
crease in participation over
the past several years, as
more and more girls are en-
tering the events that give
out thousands of dollars in
scholarships, career opportu-
nities, cars,jewelry, make-up,
clothes, etc. These competi-
tions have heated.up the
meeting halls and caused
fights in the foyers.
But with all the hairspray,
the vaseline on the teeth, the
expensive dresses and the
endless array of pageants
and auditions, who really is
benefitting from this ,and
who wants it more, mother or
daughter?
As with many a bride's spe-
cial day, it seems to be more
a case of what the mother
wants, than what her soon-
to-be-married daughter de-
sires on her big day. Either
she wants to give her daugh-
ter the best, or she is trying
to have the wedding she her-
self never got.
Over the past two weeks,
both the Miss America Pag-
eant and the Miss Universe
Pageant have aired. Hun-
dreds of gorgeous women
from all over the country and
the world have been compet-
ing for the crown. It was a
parade of beauties that
would make any man wish
for the younger days and any
woman envious of the days
gone by.
But what many didn't see,
was the collapse of Miss
Puerto Rico after she was
crowned Miss Universe. She
was dehydrated, had not
eaten in days, and was ready
for a hospital stay.
She told reporters that she
was just famished and her
family and coach had really
been staying on her about
her weight. She passed the
test, but at a costly price.

Locally, the Southern tra-
dition of beauty pageants
have consumed many young
girls' lives, and the lives of
the mothers that push them
into these events. For many
it is nothing more than a


learning experience they
want for their daughters, and
even here in the South some
of their sons.
Many of those participants
have learned the valuable
lessons of team work, self-
confidence, goal achievement
and overall self-respect.
These are admirable traits
that all children should be
taught at an early age.
But some mothers take
these things a bit further.
They regard it as an insult
when their cherished little
angel doesn't win or is not
chosen as one of the top 10
or 20.
Now it becomes a personal
issue, with hell to pay for the
judges' "mistake." It's not at
all unlike some parents' re-
actions to the officiating at
little league ballgames.
No longer is it a learning
experience, but a competition
that everyone is out to win
at any cost. To many, second
place is just first in the los-
ers' bracket. That does not sit
well with those parents, es-
pecially mothers who have
spent hundreds of thousands
of dollars of lessons, dresses,
make-up, pictures and any-
thing else associated with
becoming a beauty queen.
Recently, more and more
stories have been reported of
mothers fighting one another
backstage because their
daughter's competition .got
the better dressing. table
chair, or their daughter's
musical track was sabotaged
by another mother. It seems
to be a vicious cycle that has
tainted a once innocent
event.
Pageant organizers on the
upper levels are now trying
to implement rules about
parents' involvement both
during a pageant and after
the winner has been
crowned, as well as training
preparations before the com-
petition. It is hoped that
making the playing field
more even will prevent such
incidents as that of a Michi-
gan beauty pageant contes-
tant who was "accidently"
struck on the sidewalk by a
competitor's mother's car
while on her way to the fi-
nal interview.
For many the answer is
simple. Mothers need to
know when to say, "it is your
choice if you want to be in the
pageant and I will learn to
liv mry life and fulfill my own
dream.r- without going
through you to do so."
Until that time, competi-
tion will become increasingly
fierce, with more harsh
word-. and feelings ex-
changed. There will be even
more stories of mothers, at
Ih- ,-rnd of their beauty pag-
cant rope. snapping and go-
irip, postal on another unsu;-
p(-(clmin little beauty.

installed new officers for the

Rotarian of the Year. Each
member had voted by secret
ballot prior to the banquet for
the member who exemplified
Rotary's motto, "Service
above Self." The member se-
lected for this honor would
have supported the club, the
community, their vocation,
and international service
projects not with just their
financial support but with
hard work, dedication, and


many valuable hours of their
personal time.
Mary Whitehead was
named as Rotarian of the
Year and was presented with
a plaque from the member-
ship. Officers were sworn in
by Judge LaPorte. New club
officers are: Sylvia Bruner,
president; Chuck Lawson,
president-elect; Lyvonnica
Green, secretary, and Fay
Leddon, treasurer.
The Rotary Club meets
each Wednesday at noon at
McLain's Steak House. Visi-
tors and prospective mem-
'bers are welcome.

ELLEN MAYFIELD

RETIRES


By ELLEN MAYFIELD, CDA .
On the road again, this time, the road to r .
retirement. It seems like yesterday that .. .
Sunday afternoon that I went for an interview
with Drs. B.J. Brown and R.T. Wiess. ',
It was an introduction to Dentistry, and a .
new world that has lasted 46 years.
Twenty-seven and a half years found me on
the road to the Circle in DeFuniak Springs,
where I learned, worked and fell in love, not-only with my "bosses", but the beautiful patients who
became my friends and played such an important role in my life.
Then my life changed. Dentistry on the Circle was no more, and because of Drs. Brown and
Wiess, I met and married Dr. Lynn Mayfield. I traveled to Bonifay to work with him and then we
decided to relocate the office to DeFuriiak.
There, I continued my love for dentistry, working side by side, smiling every day for seventeen
and a half years. Little did I know the road in life would make a sudden turn, with severe illness of
the love of my life what to do? What about the patients, as I prayed for his recovery?
Then as if the heavens opened, there was Dr. Michael O'Donnell. Prayers were answered. My
husband continued to improve and there was an angel to take care of our patients.
However, after a year and a half, time has come to say goodbye to a profession that I will always
love and respect. I shall miss the people, the patients,
those of whom I call friends. I've been a part of a
; growing, changing dental era for 46 years. I've
seen changes from the white starched uniforms
to scrubs, to the computer age.
.. i One thing that never changed was the tender
loving care delivered by true professionals, one
of which I leave and recommend to you. Travel
S/ the road to 57 Bruce Avenue in DeFuniak
Springs and be pampered with the latest tech-
S"nology and equipment that dentistry has to offer.
V / Be pampered with the talented skilled staff and
know that my spirit is there. And, just who knows,
i.,,'be I'll see you there as I pop in for good dentistry. So
until then I'm on the road!

Commissioners Rosier Cuchens of
District 4 and Scott Brannon of

the meeting of the Northwest

Authority at the South Walton
Courthouse Annex on July 20.


Meeting with FDOT Secretar-I Stuer on JanuarN 5


Walton County Commissioners and the
mayors of DeFuniak Springs and Freeport
traveled to Pensacola Jan. 19 to make a
presentation to the Northwest Florida
Transportation Corridor Authority. They
reaffirmed their commitment to a road
project that would widen Highway 331 to
four lanes.


* In Freeport, extensive commercial and residential
development is in progress now within city limits and
utility service area
* All traffic to and from the beaches transits Freeport
during normal work days
* Many workers live in or north of Freeport
* Two schools are directly on the route and one in,
proximity, causing slowdowns in the morning and
early afternoon
* Evacuation traffic intermingles \vith school closure
traffic

A two-iane bypass is under construction that \vill relieve
the present congestion efforts are being made to have it
built as a four-lane whilee construction is in progress


* US 331 continues to be the main route from Alabama to the Beaches of South Walton
* Similarly, it is the main route returning home, with traffic worsened during hurricane
evacuation by adding residents to the line of tourists
* Walton County has the second longest evacuation time in the state
-second only to Key West
* It takes 28.3 hours to safely evacuate the areas south of the Bay to SR 20 in Freeport
* Currently Walton County must begin evacuation for cat 2, 3, 4, 5 hurricanes before a
Hurricane Warning is issued.
* Vehicle queues under current capacity will likely extend back into storm surge zones,
especially for major hurricane threats.

The Northwest Florida Transportation Corridor Authority was created by
the Florida Legislature in 2005 to improve mobility on the U.S. 98 corridor
in Northwest Florida, to enhance traveler safety; identify and develop
hurricane evacuation routes; promote economic development along the
corridor; and implement transportation projects to alleviate current or
anticipated traffic congestion. This may include roads that feed or connect
to US 98, thus making US 331 an issue of concern to them.

The nine member board is comprised of a representative appointed by the
Governor from each coastal county, from Escambia to Wakulla counties.
The Florida Department of Transportation District 3 Secretary, Edward
Prescott, serves as an ex-officio member under the terms of Florida Statute
Section 343.81 that established the board. Local businessman Jim Anders
represents Walton County on the board.


The Authority is almost ready to sign a contract with the engineering firm HDR, Inc to
draw up the master plan for traffic improvements, which is due to the state Legislature on
July 1, 2007.

7 Peace By Winning
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite
Pastor, Freeport UMC

"The only way you carf make peace is to win." I over-
heard this remark by a retired U.S. military general on a
news documentary. He was talking about the terrorist at-
tack on the marine barracks in Beirut back in the 80s. His
contention was that you can't negotiate with those who are
dead set against you you can only win over them so they
can't attack you again.
That does not sit well with those who want to be "rea-
sonable" in every conflict and always hold out hope for a
diplomatic solution. In the spiritual realm, I think the gen-
eral is right on. You cannot negotiate with the enemy of
your soul. Neither can you try to peacefully co-exist. It's
just not happening!
The devil is relentless when it comes to his evil inten-
tions toward each one of us. "Be sober, be vigilant; because
your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion,
seeking whom he may devour." (1 Peter 5:8) If you give him
an inch he will always take a mile.
Sometimes he sneaks in so stealthily we hardly notice.
There he is over on a shelf in our life, acting like he's not
going to make any big trouble at all. Oh well, since he's not
bothering anything, why not let him just sit there? Don't
do it. He wants to devour you and he won't be gentle or
"reasonable" about it if he gets the chance.
Do you want to have peace in your life? Soundly defeat
him. The only real peace is by winning.
Stop by here on your way to eternity- Sunday School

DeFUNIAK 9-10 YEAR OLDS FINISH 4-2
THE DeFuniak Springs 9-10 year old Little League baseball team finished with a 4-
2 record and a fourth place finish in the District 1 Little League baseball tournament held

Power Team coming to Florala


The Power Team is coming
to Florala High School, Bego-
nia St., Florala, on August
16-20 at 7 p.m. nightly.
The Power Team is a group
of world class athletes who
have performed the world's
greatest exhibitions of power,
strength, speed, inspiration,
and motivation in every state
and in over 40 countries for
over 30 years. These giant
men, many weighing over
300 pounds, can snap base-
ball bats like twigs, lift tele-
phone poles overhead, rip
phone books and license
plates like pieces of paper,
and smash walls of ice and
concrete. The Power Team
has several world-record
holders, former NFL football
players, and professional
wrestlers.


In 1976, The Power Team
became the "Original"
strength team and evangelis-
tic association, utilizing visu-
ally explosive feats of
.strength to communicate
positive messages to audi-
ences in churches, civic cen-
ters, stadiums, and coliseums
all across the nation, as well
as the world. They have been
featured in People Magazine,
The Saturday Evening Post,
and on the popular TV shows,
Walker, Texas Ranger,
Ripley's Believe It or Not, and
most recently, several ap-
pearances on Steve Harvey's
Big Time Show on the WB.
They have also been featured
onABC, NBC, CBS and CNN.
For over ten years they have
had their own television
show called The Power Con-
nection.


The Power Team has per-
formed in over 25,000 school
assemblies over the past 20
years, and is ranked as one
of the top school assemblies
in the nation. Believing that
inspiration and motivation
equals academic and per-
sonal achievement, they
tackle the tough issues of
drugs, alcohol, violence, ab-
stinence, peer pressure, and
suicide. Schools appreciate
the ability of The Power
Team to customize the topics,
content, and presentations to
match their audiences. From
elementary ages to high
school, young people all-over
the world have been chal-
lenged.

tact Daniel Garnett at (334)

year's winner, Floyd Landis,
is facing the same accusa-
tions. The winner of the 93rd
competition in Paris tested
positive for high testosterone
levels, but he has assured
fans and the media he will
clear his name.
Just hours after the race
concluded, Landis' victory
was called into question by a
positive test for high levels of
testosterone during his im-
pressive comeback perfor-
mance in stage 17 of the Tour
de France. Landis told re-
porters via satellite that even
if the results do come back
negative and people know
the truth, his name is tainted
in the world of biking and in
the Tour de France arena.
The Phonak team sus-


pended Landis, pending re-
sults from a backup sample.
If he is found guilty, Landis
could be stripped of the Tour
title and fired from the team
that he rides with during the
Tour de France.
Second-place finisher Os-
car Pereiro could-take the
place of Landis if the results
of his urine test come back
positive. Neither competitor
sounded thrilled about either
result.

This past weekend brought
on another round of accusa-
tions as Olympic great Jus-
tin Gatlin came under fire for
his alleged use of illegal
strength-enhancing drugs.
This is yet another headline
about a subject that seems to
be rocking the professional
sports world.
The world's Anti-Doping
Agency leader demanded'
that the American sprinter
be banned for "up to life" if


the results are confirmed
positive. This statement
came after Gatlin had been
tested for steroids.
His coach, Trevor Graham,
said that his positive drug
test was the result of sabo-
tage. This came after Gatlin
had been informed by the
U.S. Anti-Doping Agency
that he had tested positive
for testosterone or other ste-
roids after a relay race in
Kansas that took place in
April of this year.
This latest shocker came
just two days after the news
about newly- crowned Tour
de France winner Floyd
Landis and the allegations
against him.
Both camps say that their
athletes are innocent of the
charges and accusations, but
both camps agree that even
if the tests are negative, the
accusations have already
tainted both athletes' ca-
reers, for life.


Roberts pulls



upset at British Open


By CHUCK HINSON
. If you were a Loren Roberts
fan, you might have thought
it was all over for the gentle-
man who had blown a five-
stroke lead. It seemed that
Eduardo Romero had it in
the bag and the tournament
as well.
But Roberts had other
things up his sleeve, includ-
ing faith in his own abilities,
including his ability to putt.
It all came down to a poor


missed first putt on the final
hole, leaving Romero four
feet from the hole. On the
next putt, Roberts stepped
up, looked at the upcoming
play, sunk the ball and took'
home the trophy.
The two players were neck-
and-neck throughout the
tournament. Roberts shot a
75 in the final round and
Romero followed closely with
a 70.


Dick Mast finished in third
place at 5-under 275 after a
final-round 67.
Defending champion Tom
Watson, who was trying to
win his third title in four
years, finished with a 74 and
a four-round total of 288.
He came in tied at the 23rd
spot.
Three-time champion Gary
Player tied for 65th place
with a 16-over 296.


Castroneves/

Schumacher

win

on the

black top

By CHUCK HINSON
In the heatwave that is
gripping the nation, the only
thing the hot asphalt is good
for is a good Indy or Formula
One race. If you wanted to
see two good ones, then this
past weekend was your fan-
tasy.
In Brooklyn, Michigan,
Helio Castroneves let his
skill and agility take him to
the winner's circle at the
Firestone Indy 400 this past
Sunday. He beat Vitor Meira
by 1.62 seconds, picking up
his series-high fourth4victory
of the season and putting him
ahead of Sam Hornish Jr. for
the points lead in the league.
Castrovenes took the lead
for the last time on lap 177
after his final pit stop. He did
his trademark dashing and
weaving between the numer-
ous cars to build up a three-
lap lead over Meira.
The win gave Castrovenes
his 11th Indy Car series race
of his career, his first at
Michigan International
Speedway.
Michael Schumacher had
Formula One racing fans on
their feet in Hockenheim,
Germany this past weekend
as he blasted past the com-
petition to take control and
lead the pack.
It was Schumacher's third
straight Grand Prix win. The
win also cut points in half
from leader and defending
champion Fernando Alonso.
Alonso finished in fifth po-
sition, but still holds on to the
points lead. He stands at 100
points, while Schumacher
trails by 11 points, with 89
points. There are six races re-
maining in the season, and a
win worth 10 points is still
open.

Rees discovers


portrait of George


Walton in Mobile

THE TRI-VILLAGE FIRE DEPARTMENT in Choctaw Beach is now under the control of Walton County Fire Rescue.



Walton County Fire Rescue to


operate Tri-Village Fire Department


Walton County native
, Brenda Anderson Rees is
pictured with original
portrait of Walton
County's namesake, George
Walton Jr., in Mobile,
Alabama. Brenda had
discovered a picture of the
portrait in a book "The
Walton House" by Leora
Sutton in the archives at the
University of West Florida. A
copy of the black and white
picture was reproduced and
premiered at the Walton
County History Fair in
February, 2006, by Brenda.

This picture of the full-
color original portrait will be
the first published view for
most, if not all, Walton
County citizens. This picture
was taken Wednesday, July
26, 2006. Breida's great


uncle, T.T. Wentworth Jr.,
once owned the house in
Pensacola where the
Walton's reportedly lived. He
donated the house to the
Pensacola Historic Society
for $1. His extensive museum
collection is now part of a
state museum named for
him.
George Walton Jr. was
Secretary for the territory of
Florida and Acting Governor.
His father, George Walton,
signed the Declaration of
Independence and was twice
governor of Georgia. George
Walton Jr.'s daughter,
Octavia Walton Le Vert,
becamefa mous and was
known by such titles as "the
pride of Mobile" and received
by national and
international leaders of her
day.


By JEFFREY POWELL
"This agreement will pro-
vide the community with bet-
ter fire and rescue coverage,"
stressed Tri-Village Fire Dis-
trict ex-President Joe L. Vest.
An interlocal agreement be-
tween Walton County and
the Tri-Village Fire District
dated July 11, 2006 trans-
ferred daily operations ofTri-
Village Fire District to Wal-


ton County Fire Rescue.
Walton County Fire Rescue
has been operating under
contract at Tri-Village since
late 2004. Prior to this date
Tri-village had been a volun-
teer department.
The agreement transfers
all real property, motor ve-
hicles, cash assets, and per-
sonal property, including
firefighting equipment held


by Tri-Village Fire District to
Walton County.
The Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
voted unanimously in favor
of the agreement.
Vest cited the inability to
maintain a volunteer force on
a daily basis as one reason
for the agreement. "Most of
the volunteers have day
jobs," Vest said. Walton


County Fire Rescue has an
emergency medical techni-
cian and paramedic on hand
at all times, according to
Walton County Fire Manager
Eddie Rivers.

Walton County has no
,plans to move the S.R. 20 fire
station located on
Choctawhatchee Bay in
Choctaw Beach at this time.


County eyeing beach



restoration along CR-30A


By Dotty Nist
Along the CR-30A
t corridor, Walton County is
considering the addition of
approximately 10 million
cubic yards of sand in several
areas totaling 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
Walton Tourist Development
Council'(TDC). The TDC's
role in this regard is project
management, facilitation
and funding of beach
restoration projects through
tourist 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
everything 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
designated 14.3 miles of
Walton County's 25.3 mile
coastline as critically eroded
as a result of hurricane and
storm impacts.
This includes the
approximately five miles on
the west end that is part of
an ongoing large-scale beach


restoration project. That
project is on hold by order of
federal officials due to the
resulting loss of four
federally protected 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
being proposed in four
sections spanning seven
designated critical erosion
areas. In order to create
longer stretches of restored
beachfront in the interest of
increased storm worthiness
of the product, the TDC is
proposing the inclusion of
some areas not designated 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
Sandestin/Topsail, Eastern
Lake and Camp Creek areas,
ancient inundated beaches
that are expected to provide
the necessary a- -unt of
beach quality sa..... for the
restoration project along CR-
30A.
Detailed sand source
investigation is planned in
the three areas, with 100
samples being taken 1000,
feet apart.


Total cost for the
restoration project along CR-
30A is estimated at $50-60
million. Plans are for the
work to be funded through a
combination of bed tax
funding, grants, and bonding
or financing, with the portion
of the bed tax designated for
beach nourishment used as
a revenue stream.
he project is expected to
take a year to complete.

ATTENTION
ROCK HILL RESIDENTS


Regional


Utilities along with South Walton


Utilities have been permitted by Northwest Florida
Water Management District to operate potable
water wells south of Rock Hill Road since 2001.
To accommodate future growth
in the coastal areas as well as Freeport,
plans are now in the design phase of an expansion
to our well field. We anticipate construction
of additional wells in the immediate area
south of Rock Hill Road.


This permit requires Regional Utilities and
South Walton Utilities to share in the cost to
restore potable water service to private water users
in the event a well becomes inoperable
due to authorized inland water withdrawal.
Regional Utilities shall report the occurrence
of any such impacts to the District and shall
identify the mitigation action taken to
address the impacts.


Due to the recent drought condition in
Walton County, you may experience well
failure due to reduced ground water levels.
If you are a resident in the vicinity of the
Rock Hill well field and you feel that your
well has failed to operate properly,
please contact Ashley Dismukes
at 850-231-5114 ext 212.

Health officials caution


about heat exhaustion


The Florida Department of
Health (DOH) ia advising all
Floridians and visitors to the
state to be aware of the warn-
ing signs of heat exhaustion.
Heat exhaustion can occur
after several days of exposure
to high temperatures and in-
adequate or unbalanced re-
placement of fluids.
Elderly people, people
with high blood pressure or
heart disease, and people
working or exercising in a hot
environment are most prone
to heat exhaustion, as are
those not acclimatized to the
heat.
Warning signs of heat ex-
haustion may vary, but can
include heavy sweating, pale-
ness, muscle cramps, tired-
ness, weakness, dizziness,
headache, nausea or vomit-
ing, fainting, cool or moist
skin, fast or weak pulse rate,
and fast and shallow breath-
ing.


Heat exhaustion can
progress to heat stroke if
untreated. In cases where
symptoms are severe, or if
the victim has heart problems
or high blood pressure, medi-
cal attention should be
sought immediately.
In less severe cases, rapid
cooling-off is necessary. Medi-
cal assistance should be
sought if symptoms worsen or
last longer than one hour.
Effective cooling methods
include drinking cool, non-al-
coholic beverages, resting in
an air-conditioned environ-
ment, taking a cool shower,
bath, or sponge bath, and
wearing lightweight clothing.

Sunburn can be prevented
by applying sunscreen with
an SPF factor of 30 or higher.
Sunburn damages the skin's
ability to dissipate heat,
which can lead to heat ex-
haustion.
