BCC discuss traffic concurrency


with Freeport City Council


By Jeffrey Powell
Members of the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners met with the
Freeport City Council on
Thursday August 3, to
discuss future traffic
concurrency issues affecting
Freeport and surrounding
areas.
A 2005 bill enacted by the
Florida Legislature (Senate
bill 360) is at the center of
these discussions. Senate bill
360 provides a mechanism
for developers to pay their
fair share contribution to the
infrastructure needs of local
development.
Walton County has
adopted a methodology for
assessing proportionate fair
share mitigation. The
methodology chosen by the
county has some Freeport
councilmen concerned. One


concern


is peak hour


analysis, which the county
prefers over the Department
of Transportation (DOT)
preference of average daily
use analysis. Peak hour
analysis calculates traffic at
heaviest times where as the
DOT method calculates a
daily average.
Originally the Board of
County Commissioners
wanted Freeport to enter into
an interlocal agreement
similar to DeFuniak Springs
and Paxton. This agreement
meant the county would
handle traffic concurrency
issues instead of the cities.
Mayor Marse indicated that
he did not favor such a plan
and said that the Freeport
City Council prefers to
handle its own concurrency
issues regarding develop-
ment within the city limits.
"How will this help
Freeport?" asked Mayor


Mickey Marse. "All
development south of
Freeport affects us because
the traffic will use highway
331," added Marse.
Walton County Growth
Management Director Pat
Blackshear and Engineering
Manager for Planning
Development Greg Graham
assured Marse their
cooperation in devising a
methodology everyone can
live with. "There have been
a lot of misunderstandings
concerning this issue and we
will do whatever we can to
work with the City of
Freeport," said Blackshear.
Graham went on to suggest
a combination of method-
ologies to appease Freeport's
concerns. "We want what is
best for the city and county
then move forward together,"
Graham said.
"At this time, we have


three main issues to contend
with," County Commissioner
Chairman Scott Brannon
stated, "Peak hour traffic
analysis versus average daily
use analysis, distribution of
traffic in Freeport and
capital improvement
projects."
Brannon said that
Freeport's methodology may
be better than the county's
and it may be that the county
should change its policy.
However, all sides agreed
that it is in everyone's best
interest to use the same
methodology.
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners and
Freeport City Councilmen
agreed to continue this forum
at a future date.

DFS planning board


covers short but far


reaching agenda


By Bruce Collier
The DeFuniak Springs
Planning Board attended to
a short but potentially far-
reaching agenda at its Au-
gust meeting, held at City
Hall.
Present were Larry Laird,
director of the building and
planning department, Mayor
Harold Carpenter, Chairman
Henry Ennis, and members
Jim Harman, B.B. Campbell
Jr., Roger Leatherberry,W.H.
Lindsey, Tyron King, and
Kermit Wright.
City Planner Greg Scoville
presented both items of busi-
ness.
The first item was a list of
nine large scale future land
use amendments, presented
with a map showing their lo-
cation in DeFuniak Springs.
The list describes nine
properties, ranging in size
from 51.8 acres to 340 acres.
Seven of the properties are
currently zoned as "county
general agriculture" or "agri-
culture." One is "county ur-
ban, residential" and one is
"county estate residential."
The proposed amend-
ments would convert seven to
residential and two to mixed
commercial and residential.
Building density on indi-
vidual properties ranges
from low in seven to medium
in two.
Scoville also quoted esti-


mated maximum potential,
dwelling units on specific.
properties. These ranged
from 127 to around 50Q
dwelling units.
Harman questioned-
whether sewer and water fa-,
cilities were adequate for the
development resultant from,
adoption of these amend-
ments.
Laird said that they would,
be, as long as the projects'
building dates were met.
Scoville also pointed out that.
the unit figures quoted were-
in the "upper range."
"We're looking at a lot of
issues," said Laird, "compat-
ibility, water, sewer."
A motion to recommend-
the amendments to the city
council was approved with-
out opposition. '
Once the planning board
has made its recommenda-
tion to the city council, an or--
dinance will be drafted for
each amendment applica-
tion, and each will be sched-
uled for a public hearing by
the city council. From there,
the amendments will go to:
the Florida Department of
Community Affairs (DCA) for:
review.
The DCA will send a re-
port of objections, recommen-
dations and comments (ORC)
to the council, which will re-

WCSB considers new school year


By Patrick Casey
At the Walton County
School Board meeting on
Monday, August 7,
Principal Tracey Dickey was
honored at the beginning bf
the meeting for his
outstanding work at
Freeport Elementary School
by board members and
Superintendent Carlene
Anderson as their choice for
the 2006 Principal Achieve-
ment Award.

A few concerned parents
living in isolated areas north
of Mossy Head voiced their
concerns about students
having to walk half-mile to
one mile distances to the
nearest bus stop.
Superintendent Ander-
son promised to look into the
matter, quoting that state
guidelines and board policy
sometimes limits where
drop-off and pick-up points
can be.
The board had to postpone



Walker seeks

district two

commission

seat
"My vision for Waltn
County is to meet the diverse
needs of current county
residents and bring new
business into the county
through increased infra-
structure", said Herman
Walker. "One major project I
intend to work on is seeing
Highway 331 becoming four
lanes. While plenty of
candidates make promises, I
always have been a person
who sees projects through to
their completion. Simply put,
I say what I mean and do
what I say", he added.
Walker says, "As a
property owner and
community member, I have
chosen to run for county
commissioner to serve the


opening bids for the bridge
project and site work at the
new Mossy Head Elemen-
tary School when it was
determined that a longer bid
advertising period was
needed to comply with
state statutes. The board also
had to postpone discussing a
project at Paxton that would
provide canopies on the
north side of the Paxton
gymnasium to protect
students from weather while
loading buses.
Board members discussed
the criteria for waivers for
students wanting to attend
schools in Walton County
who live outside the county
area. Superintendent
Anderson commented that
the district has been ap-
proached by some parents
who wish to send their
children to school in Walton
County, but live outside
the district's boundaries. The
district already has a
guideline for waivers, but


Superintendent Anderson
provided a handout that
spelled out the criteria in full
detail.

The board passed an
update on its use of school'
facilities by allowing a policy
change for Supplemen-
tal Education Services that
would permit use by for-
profit agencies. Previously
the board had only allowed
not-for-profit agencies to
conduct use of district
facilities for after-school
tutoring services that can
occur Monday- Friday from
3-5 p.m. Kay Dailey, Title I
Coordinator, told board
members that the previous
policy had limited the
number of agencies
interested in providing
Supplemental Education
Services. The board approved
the change by a 4-1 margin.
Sonny Nolin, director of
personnel, informed the
board that the county was


still seeking teachers in some
areas for the district's
schools. Several transfers
over the past few weeks
coupled with resignations
have a few slots still open at
the start of the school year.
The board had to hold a
closed door attorney-client
meeting to discuss
settlement negotiations
and strategy related to
expenditures in the pending
litigation between the
Walton County School Board
and the contractors and
architect in relation to the
construction of Freeport
High School.

The next regularly
scheduled meeting of the
Walton County School Board
will be held on
Monday, August 21 at 5 p.m.
at the Tivoli Administrative
Complex.

In a press release dated
August 2, the Florida Com-
'mission-on' Ethics i.FCOE)
stated that there was "prob-
able cause" to investigate
former DeFuniak Springs
Chief of Police Ray Burgess
on two ethics violations pos-
sibly committed while in of-
fice.
The FCOE release found
probable cause that Burgess
"may have misused his posi-
tion to falsify FDLE certifi-
cation records."
According to the release,
Burgess may also have "so-
licited a subordinate officer
to report more overtime
hours than the officer worked
so that the 'officer could re-
ceive the overtime pay and
give it to Burgess."
Three other charges, made
within the same complaint
against Burgess, were dis-
missed by the FCOE.
According to the FCOE,
all five of the allegations
were made in a single com-
plaint filed by Patti King-
Skinner, a former DFSPD
employee.
Burgess resigned from of-
fice in August of 2005, and
plead nolo contender to a
misdemeanor charge involv-
ing falsification of a public
document.
The document dealt with
FDLE certification of an ap-
plication by a person seeking
employment with the police
department, and is the sub-
ject of the first of the FCOE
findings.

The Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) has voted unani-

to do;
Adjudiention was with-
held in that case, and Bur-
gess was fined $300, in addi-
tion to voluntarily relin-
quishing his state criminal
justice certifications for a pe-
riod of. two years.
The second allegation con-
cerned payment for overtime
hours worked following Hur-
ricane Ivan, in September of
2004. Burgess informed the
FCOE that he had made no
-such solicitation to the of-
ficer.
The FCOE release empha-
sizes that "[a] finding of prob-
able cause is not a determi-
nation that a violation has
occurred. Such a determina-
tion is made only after a full
evidentiary hearing on the
charges."
The commission has the
authority to settle, or to
hold a public hearing on al-
legations of ethics violations.
The FCOE is an indepen-
dent nine-member commis-
sion formed to' review com-
plaints filed under the state
Code of Ethics, and is autho-
rized to recommend civil pen-
alties for violations, includ-
ing removal from office or
employment, and fines of up
to $10,000.
Burgess declined to com-
ment on the release, except
to say that his attorney,
Clayton Adkinson, had the

himself had not seen it.

At press time, Adkinson

Aug.. 26 1 Walton County Tax Collector
www.waltontaxcollector.com
Question: I recently bought a business or rental home/condo and later received a tax
bill for past due tangible.property taxes for previous years. Am I responsible for these
taxes or the previous owner?

The facts: (Florida Statute 192.042) The new owner is responsible. Most title companies
do not do a search of the tangible assets of a business. You should therefore consult your
realtor, attorney or closing agent to avoid problems in this area. You may also contact the
Tax Collector's Office to determine if unpaid,personal property taxes are associated with
the property.

Tangible Personal property is everything other than real estate that has value by itself. It
would include things such as furniture, fixtures, tools, machinery, household appliances,
signs, equipment, leasehold improvements, supplies, leased equipment and any other
equipment used in a business or to earn income. This includes rental homes and condos
since rental activity is of an income-producing nature.

Anyone in possession of assets on January 1 who has either a proprietorship, partnership,
corporation or is a self-employed agent or contractor, must file each year. Property owners
who lease, loan or rent property must also file.

At the beginning of the year a return is mailed to Tangible Personal Property owners by the
Property Appraiser's Office. Tax bills are mailed by the Tax Collector beginning November
1st of each year, and become delinquent on April 1 of the following year.

Tangible personal property that remains unpaid will have a tax warrant prepared and
ratified through the Circuit Court.

For more information regarding this issue, or other laws and regulations related to
the Office of the Tax Collector, please contact us or visit our website.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


PERSONAL COMMENTS



EDITOR'S COMMENT




News from Little Havana


Editor,
Jeffrey Powell's article on Camp Helen was of particular
interest to me as it was built by my mother, Margaret Hicks
nee Davis, and was our summer home from 1932 until my
mother sold it to Avondale Mills in 1945.
One correction needs to be made. R.E. McCaskill sold that
particular piece of property, 185 acres, to my father. It was
never involved with the Hicks-McCaskill Corporation, based
in DeFuniak Springs, and was always intended to be a pri-
vate place for our family.
We all owe a debt of gratitude to Mrs. Helen Schroeder for
her dedication in preserving this historic place for future
generations.


By RON KELLEY

Over the last three years, the Herald-Breeze has insti-
tuted a number of changes and offered several new features.
Since that time, I have been humbled by the overwhelm-
ingly positive response of our readers who approve of the
changes. One of those features is 'News from the Capitol.'
As its name implies, this column features news from Tal-
lahassee and Washington D.C. As features go, I think it's a
gem. It always contains news that has a direct effect on Wal-
ton County citizens. It's brief but contains a wealth of infor-
mation and news you can use. I mention this because, this
week, the News from the Capitol is both good and bad. The
good news is that our hurricane forecast is slightly better
than we first thought it would be. The bad news is, our fed-
eral government is at it again. The 'browning of America'
continues unabated.
According to Associated Press, "the Bush administration
is preparing to ease some immigration rules for Cubans who
want to live in the United States, focusing largely on re-
uniting families now separated by politics and the sea. 'Taken
together, they promote safe, legal and orderly migration,
while they also support the Cuban people in their aspira-
tions for a free and prosperous society,' says a draft copy of
Homeland Security Department talking points obtained
Monday by The Associated Press."
According to the report, "the plan seeks to reunite fami-
lies by allowing U.S. residents to apply for expedited parole
legal entry into the country for close relatives in Cuba.
This would speed the immigration process for an estimated
10,000 Cubans who are waiting for U.S. visas to join fami-
lies in the United States. Fewer than 1,200 visas have been
issued annually to Cubans over the past five years, the docu-
ments show."
First, let me say that I have nothing against the legal
entry of non-Americans into this country. That's the way it
should be done. My complaint with this plan is that, like
most of this administration's initiatives, it is extremely se-
lective. By that I mean, why are we just changing the immi-
gration laws for the benefit of Cubans? Why haven't we done


this for the citizens of Communist China, Russia, Bosnia,
North Korea, the Sudan and other places where citizens are
subject to extreme civil rights abuses, starvation, poverty,
sickness and even mass murder? Why just Cuba? Why do
only Cubans merit our help? Why haven't we attacked and
invaded any of those other countries and brought democ-
racy to them? Why aren't we easing immigration for any of
those people?
More importantly, why are we still welcoming illegal aliens
into America? You're probably thinking, "Oh, but we're not
doing that." Well, I'm sorry to have to tell you, but yes, Vir-
ginia, our government is still welcoming illegals no matter
how much money it costs you.
Have you seen the television ads by Matthew Lesko, a
funny-looking little man who wears a suit with dollar signs
all over it, telling you that you, too, can get a government
handout if you know where to look? Well, Matthew appar-
ently has a plan to help illegal aliens, too.
In part, the e-mail I received said, "Isn't America great?
You don't even have to be a citizen to be eligible for free
grants and services from Uncle Sam. Government financial
guru Matthew Lesko (www.lesko.com/immigrants) says, as
long as you are here legally and, sometimes even illegally,
you can apply and receive free money and services from thou-
sands of government programs. As an immigrant or citizen,
Uncle Sam wants to help you become a success in America.
"Non-citizens can apply for $10,000 For A Down Payment,
Closing Costs or Rehabilitation, Up To $10,400/Yr For
Seniors, Make $32,000 & Get Free Prescription
Drugs, $1,200/Month In Day Care Money While You Look
For Work, $4,000 To Attend Any College... plus hundreds of
other programs. There are even some programs that illegal
immigrants can apply for, like health care for kids, and ser-
vices like free legal help that never even ask the question."
Yes, Matthew, America is a wonderful place. Soon our chil-
dren will be standing at attention and reciting the follow-
ing words, "Prometo lealtad a la bandera de los Estados
Unidos de M6xico."

Makes you proud to be an American, doesn't it?

AGENDA

spond. Scoville estimated
that final adoption of ap-
proved amendments would
take place in January.
The second item was a pe-
tition for a small-scale
amendment, requesting a
land use change from low
density residential and a zon-
ing change from single fam-
ily residential to medium
density residential and
multi-family residential zon-
ing.
The 10-acre property,is lo-
cated near the corner of
Dorsey Avenue and Graham
Street The owner, Artesian
Springs, intends to build a
multi-family development in-
cluding some 32 units.
The property contains ap-
proximately 5.8 acres of up-


FROM FRONT

land, 3.9 acres of wetland,
and .3 of pond on the wet-
lands.
Scoville's review and sub-
mission noted that the den-
sity of the proposed develop-
ment was inconsistent with
surrounding density, that all
proposed dwelling units
might not be accommodated
as to required cul-de-sacs,
recreation areas, and storm
water retention area.
Also a potential problem
was the adverse effect of in-
creased vehicular traffic on
Dorsey Avenue, due to its
relative width.
A motion to deny the peti-
tion was carried by majority
vote.
The meeting was then ad-
journed.

policy. Examples include ap-
plications for small-or large-
scale future land use amend-
ments, variances, and rezofi-
ing.
Legislative hearings in-
volve making or changing
policy, such as text changes in
a comprehensive plan or land
'development code, vacation
and abandonment of prop-
erty, corridor plans, and sub-
division plats.
Scoville also offered a re-
port to the city manager on
the possibility of creating a
third residential zoning dis-
trict classification.
At present, two classifica-
tions exist, the R-1 single
family residential district,
with a maximum of 2.5 dwell-
ing units per acre, and the R-
2 multiple family residential
district, with a maximum of
16 dwelling units per acre.
In DeFuniak Springs, R-1
districts correspond to "low-
density residential," and R-2
correspond to "medium den-
sity residential."
A mid-range density zon-


FROM FRONT


ing district could be created
by amendment made by the
city council. However, the're-
port advised the council that.
it has the authority to limit
density on rezoning requests
or site approval plans "sim-
ply by making lower density
a condition of approval based
on such factors as diminution
of adjacent property values,
the range of densities within
the impacted area and com-
patibility to adjacent proper-
ties." The same can also be
accomplished with develop-
ment agreements, said the
report.
" Another alternative, says
the report, is to amend the R-
2 category to provide for a
range of densities, to be de-
termined according to various
"evaluative factors."

The report was submitted
to the city manager and city
council in response to their
request for research and in-
formation on the subject, in
preparation for future devel-
opment in this area.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 10, 2006


USDA proposes change to WIC food packages


The U.S. Department of
Agriculture's Food and Nu-
trition Service (FNS) has
announced proposed changes
to the special supplemental
nutrition program for
women, infants and children
(WIC) food packages that re-
flect recommendations made
by the National Academies of
Sciences' Institute of Medi-
cine (IOM).
The current WIC food
packages were designed to
supplement participant's di-
ets with foods rich in five


nutrients-vitamins A and C,
calcium, iron and protein-
because those nutrients were
lacking in the diets of the
WIC target population when
the program first began in
1974.
The proposed changes
largely follow recommenda-
tions made by the IOM in the
final report of its review of
the WIC food packages. Un-
der the proposal, the food
packages would be revised to
add new foods such as fruits


and vegetables and whole
grains, while amounts of
some current foods would be
modified.
WIC provides pregnant,
breastfeeding, and postpar-
tum women, infants and chil-
dren up to age five with nu-
tritious supplemental foods.
The program also provides
nutrition education and re-
ferrals to health and social
services. About eight million
participants receive WIC
benefits each month. Federal


Martinez and Nelson

offer bill to help Eglin AFB


U.S. Senators Mel
Martinez (R-FL), Bill Nelson
(D-FL) offered an amend-
ment which was approved by
the full Senate.
They added an amend-
ment to the fiscal year 2007
Defense Appropriations bill
that will require the Air
Force to conduct a rigorous
review of any realignment of
missions at any Air Force
base, including Eglin AFB.


"The test facilities at Eglin
AFB are indispensable and
the long term benefits ought
not to be sacrificed for short
term budget shortfalls. We
need this capability for the
Air Force and for our na-
tional security," said
Martinez. "This amendment
requires the Air Force to con-
duct a rigorous cost-benefit
analysis of any significant
changes to the test and


evaluation facilities at Eglin
and facilities throughout the
service."
The amendment would re-
quire a cost-benefit analysis
of significant proposed re-
alignments or closures of re-
search and development or
test and evaluation installa-
tions, activities, facilities,
laboratories, units, functions,
or capabilities of the Air
Force.

Northwest Florida State Parks receive 12.5 million dollars


The Florida Department of
Environmental Protec-tion's
(DEP) Florida Park Service
received an additional $12.5
million in the 2006/2007 bud-
get to expand and develop
five state parks in Northwest
Florida.
Spearheaded by Senator
Charlie Clary, the funds will
improve Blackwater River
State Park, Camp Helen
State Park, Eden Gardens
State Park, Henderson
Beach State Park and Topsail
Hill Preserve State Park.
"Florida State Parks offer
something for everyone, from


nature-based recreation to
historic and cultural sites,"
said DEP Secretary Colleen
M. Castille. "With Senator
Clary's support, Northwest
Florida state parks can ex-
pand and improve their fa-
cilities to become more acces-
sible.to visitors while pre-
serving the area's pristine
natural resources."
The additional funding will
be used for park projects such
as:
Blackwater River State
Park, almost $1.8 million -
The park will renovate the


campground and construct a
new tool storage building and
two picnic pavilions.
Camp Helen State Park,
$1.5 million Funds will be
used to stabilize the historic
structures, including the rec-
reation hall and four cot-
tages.
Eden Gardens State Park,
$1.5 million The funding
will allow the park to relocate
the entrance road and con-
struct new picnic areas.
Henderson Beach State
Park, $1.5 million The park
will construct an additional


day-use area for visitors to
enjoy.
Topsail Hill Preserve State
Park, almost $7 million -
Funds will be used to repair
roads, expand the camp-
grounds and improve camp-
ground sewer access.
"It has been a privilege for
the last six years to work
with the Department of En-
vironmental Protection to
support our nationally
awarded state parks system,"
said Senator Charlie Clary. "I
thought that it was impor-
tant in my last year to make


sure that the parks in my
area that were devastated by
the recent storms were able
to recover and welcome our
many constituents from this
state and visitors to experi-
ence ...the real Florida."
The first two-time Gold
Medal winner honoring the
nation's best state park .ser-
vice, Florida's state park sys-
tem is one of the largest in
the country with 159 parks
spanning more than 725,000
acres and 100 miles of sandy
white beach. From swim-
ming and diving in Florida's


rivers and springs to birding
and fishing or hiking and
riding on natural scenic
trails, Florida's state parks
offer year-around outdoor
activities for all ages. Battle
reenactments and Native
American festivals celebrate
Florida's unique history,
while art shows, museums
and lighthouses offer a win-
dow into Florida's cultural
heritage.

"Having never run for a public office, I did not know what to expect when I
entered the race for the Circuit Judge seat previously held by my father.
I have put in long hours and worked hard campaigning on these hot summer days.
I am truly humbled and honored by the tremendous amount of support and
kindness shown to me by my friends, neighbors and our community.
Day in and day out, I am greeted with a smile and treated with courtesy.
I believe my 20 years of jury trial and real courtroom experience will be beneficial
to the bench and help maintain the integrity it deserves. I have tried more civil and
criminal jury trials than all of my opponents combined. It is the difference in this race.
My commitment to you is to honor family, faith and community values and my obligation will
be to apply the law and enforce the law and not try to write new laws. These characteristics,
family values and work ethics, will allow me to best serve as your Circuit Judge.

Walton County Art League to

host program on U.S. lighthouses


The Walton County Art
League has invited Bob and
Sandra Shanklin to tell their
story and share their light-
house experiences. They will
be speaking at McLain's Res-
taurant on Aug. 10 at 6 p.m.
Dinner will be followed by the
Shanklins' presentation: The
public is invited and there is
no charge except to purchase
a meal. Contact Janis
Hannon at 835-4929 or email
her at saurus3118@yahoo-
.com for reservations. Limit
attendance for children to
those 14 years of age or older.
In 1987 Bob and Sandra
Shanklin embarked on a long
journey to photograph every
lighthouse in the U.S. On
Feb. 3, 1999, on the north tip


of the Big Island, Hawaii,
they realized their dream.
After a summer 1998 trip to
Alaska, a winter trip to Ha-
waii in 1999, and a later trip
to Puerto Rico, they had pho-
tographed every U.S. light-
house.

They've trudged down
many a trail, high winds
blowing, slogged through
sand carrying camera bags in
hundred degree tempera-
tures with bugs biting,
Nikons slung around their
necks. They've gone out on
the water in sports boats,
crabber's boats, lobsterman's
boats, rowboats. They don't
know how many ferries
they've taken. They lost


count long ago. They've flown
in twin engine planes, single
engine planes, seaplanes and
helicopters. They've climbed
over boulders, hung from tree
branches over a cliff and
rolled in a mud puddle to get
under a fence. Why? To pho-
tograph a lighthouse.

They met at art shows, Bob,
a widower, was showing his
photos. Sandra, divorced,'was
showing and selling paint-
ings. They started taking
photo trips and Sandra dis-
covered that she loved pho-
tography as well as the man.
It was on their wedding trip
to New England in 1987, that
they photographed their first
lighthouses together.


Florala physician achieves life membership


David Andrew Marsh, M.
D. FAAFP a family physician
from Florala has achieved
Life Membership status with
the American Academy of
Family Physicians (AAFP).
The AAFP recognizes fam-
ily physicians who have dis-
tinguished themselves
through service to family
medicine and ongoing profes-
sional development. To
achieve AAFP Life Member
status, a family physician
must be a continuous mem-
ber for a minimum of 20
years, demonstrating dedica-
tion to continuing medical
education and the family
medicine specialty.
Founded in 1947, the
American Academy of Family
Physicians represents more
than 94,000 physicians and
medical students nationwide.
The AAFP was instrumen-
tal in establishing the spe-
cialty of family practice, and
was also the first medical spe-
cialty organization to require
its members to earn 150
hours of approved continuing
medical education every


three years. It is the only
medical specialty organiza-
tion devoted solely to primary
care.


For more information about
the American Academy of
Family Physicians, visit

Gone is the soul that we
have loved,
A husband who has
done his work,
A father, brother, loved
by all
Who, from his duties,
did not shirk,
But on and on he forged
ahead
Until his work on earth
was done
And now he sits among
the blest
Beside the Christ the
Father's Son.
We will not pause to
shed a tear
For we shall meet him
over there
Where greater duties
are performed
In cloudless lands
where all is fair.
Missing you,

To my Daddy
From
Jayden Delane
Locklear
If there are teddy bears
in Heaven
Will you send one
just for me
So I can hold it close
to my heart
Where you will always be
I will take it to my bed
each night
As the angels tuck me in
I will feel your love
surround me
And know that you are
holding me
In your arms once again
You always said "I was
your heart"
That thought will help
me through
I will always remember
My precious daddy
Whose love was honest
and true!
In loving memory of
Jeromey Delane Locklear
who went to Heaven,

If I could have
a lifetime wish
A dream that
would come true
I'd pray to God with
all my heart
For yesterday and you
A thousand words can't
bring you back
I know because I've tried...
Neither will a
thousand tears
I know because
I've cried...
You left behind our
broken hearts
and happy memories too...
But I never
wanted memories
I only wanted you.
I miss and love you with
all my heart, Mama


They treated me like


I was someone special.

I feel the same way

about them.

so many people that are tired of going to church and leaving the
same way you came in (hungry and hurting)? Do you feel like you
are so far away from God, in a time that you need Him the most?
That maybe if you could just get to Him, so many things in your life
would change? Have you been hurt by so called Christians, and now
you won't even go into the house of God? Do you have so many
questions and no answers? There is a church you can come to and
not be judged,by what you're wearing or what mistakes you've made.
Jesus says to come as you are, not come when you're perfect. If any
of these things apply to you, we invite you to come and get the an-
swers you need, come and get to Jesus. After all, you are hungry,
aren't you? Take Hwy. 90 E. to Ponce de'Leon, turn right onto 181A,

S Satan's Spider Web
By Dr. Charles Satterwhite


Not too long ago I ministered to a woman whom satan
has held in a very tight web of deceit for the last few
years. Things had gotten so bad in her life that she was
almost non-functional and after a stint in a psych ward
she was ready for spiritual solutions.
This woman is a christian and in fact, as I got to know
her, I could see why God loves her so much. She really
has such a pure tender heart and spiritual gifts of "helps"
and compassion. But she has not used her gifts for a long
time. Why?
She told me that she began to wonder about her own
motives. She would do something for someone in need
and then a voice would say; "Did you do that out of a pure
heart of love for God? No, you just want people to like
you. You don't have pure motives." Believing the voice,
she totally stopped all acts of mercy.
I couldn't believe it. What a rip off! Satan successfully
took away one of her greatest assets -, robbing her and
the church. Ministry was shut down and that played into
other lies she was swallowing. She reminded me of a fly
caught in a spider web circled around into a sticky white
cocoon. Soon she would be sucked completely dry.
We made progress in countering the lies with truth
but she has a lot of work ahead of her. Each day she must
decide who she is going to believe.: I'm rooting for her,
praying courage will trump the malicious, deceitful voice.
What voice speaks inside of you? Who do you believe?
If you are caught in a web of deceit, the truth will cut you
free.

SPORTS



Odom winning races and fans across the country


By CHUCK HINSON
His father, James Odom,
sat across from me in my of-
fice. He was smiling from ear-
to-ear because of his son
Brandon. Not only because
he's a great kid, but because
all his hard work was paying
off.
Thirteen-year-old Brandon
Odom is still too young to
race for NEXTEL points, but
he's just the right age to
ripup the go-cart circuits
across the nation. He not only
rips them up, he brings back
the first place trophies and
purses to prove his domina-


tion.
A resident of DeFuniak
Springs, Brandon has trav-
eled the nation racing in the
Jr. Heavy, Jr. Lite, Jr. Animal
Champ and Jr. Champ divi-
sions with his PEC Prowler
# 81 Go-Kart. Odom has
raced on tracks in Florida,
Georgia, South Carolina,
North. Carolina, Virginia,
Ohio and Tennessee.
He began playing around,
with go-carts at age 10, but
missed out for two years be-
cause the qualifying was at
eight. Still, Odom has made
up for lost time on the track.


His first major win was the
2005 World Karting Associa-
tion Nationals at the South-
ern Pitt Raceway in Ayden,
NC. Since his first win last
year, he has racked up more
than 50 pole awards and
won over 100 races.
Odom's racing history in-
cludes the following:
2003
Jr. Sportsman Champ
Track; Jr. Sportsman Champ
Winter Divisional
2004
FDDA Jr. Sportsman
Champ Top-5 in points; Jr.
Big Dog Champion


2005
Crossroads Motorplex
Park track record holder in
Jr. Sportsman Champ light

Tigers Woods


wins 50th tour


By CHUCK HINSON
Besides reaching a per-
sonal goal of getting back.on
his feet this season, Tiger
Woods won his 50th PGA
tour this past weekend at
the Buick Open at Warwick
Hills Golf and Country Club.
Woods now exceeds Jack
Nicklaus for the most wins.
Woods did all this at age
30, three years younger than
Nicklaus, who hit the mark
in 1973 at age 33.
Woods won the tourna-


ment by shooting his fourth
straight 6-under 66 for a
three-stroke victory over Jim
Furyk. He also made a ca-
reer-high 28 birdies and a
season-low 24-under to take
home the prize of $864,000,
bringing his total earnings to
$5, 127, 563.
Furyk finished at.64.
The victory comes just two
weeks after Woods won the
British Open. He hopes to
also win his 12th PGA Cham-
pionship in two more weeks.

He says that his ultimate
goal is to get into NASCAR.
For many, the sport of car
racing is just a weekend pas-
time. For drivers like Bran-
don Odom, it is a way of life
that has involved his entire
family, one that is helping
pave the road for his future.
Who knows, in a few years
when you are flipping chan-
nels and run across ESPN or
Sunday Nextel racing, you
might catch a glimpse of a
driver that got his humble
start on the dirt roads of
Florida with his go-cart.


By CHUCK HINSON
Sherri Steinhauer was all
smiles last Sunday when she
accepted the cup for winning
her third Women's British
Open. The 43-year-old
Steinhauer splashed back
onto the women's golf scene,
claiming the prize she last
won in 2001.
Her record stands alone.
Steinhauer also won the
1998 tournament .at Royal
Lytham, and then at Woburn
a year later. She finished at
7-under 281, 72-par for her
second major title win, the


first being 'the now discon-
tinued Du Maurier Classic,
held in Canada in 1992.
A surprising switch for this
year's tournament was that
both Annika Sorenstani and
Michelle Wie, heavy favorites
and two of the world's lead-
ing women's golfers, finished
way behind th her top five
positions.
Cristie Kerr finished three
strokes behind Steinhauer
with a 71. 2000 champion
* Sophie Gustafson finished at
72.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 10, 2006


Johnson racks up points as he captures the bricks


By CHUCK HINSON
Just when his fans and
critics had begun to give up
on him, Jimmie Johnson sur-
prised even himself at the
Indianapolis track on Sun-
day winning the Allstate
400 at Indianapolis Motor
Speedway. The victory also
earned him a few more points
towards the NEXTEL Cup.
The track held bad memo-
ries for Johnson and his crew.
Two years ago, Johnson was
leading the Nextel points
when he finished 36th at In-


dianapolis.
He followed that embar-
rassing loss to place 40th at
Watkins Glen, losing the top
spot in the point standings.

Last year looked just as
grim for Johnson, who did
not pass inspection in time to
qualify. He was once again
the points leader when the
race started, but he blew a
tire, crashed and finished in
38th place, losing the points
lead when Tony Stewart won
the race to gain control of the


points standing.
The same fate appeared
imminent as Johnson geared
up for Sunday's race. How-
ever, after a restart with 14
laps to go, Johnson fought to
come back from eighth place
and take the lead of a race
he had never led before.

Johnson suffered a blow-
out on lap 39, hobbling back
to the pit. Meanwhile, rac-
ing team members Jeff Bur-
ton and Kevin Harvick took
turns at the number one spot


DAMON HAMMONED finished in third for the second time Saturday at South Ala-
bama Speedway. Special thanks to Naylor Realty for their sponsorship and mom and
dad.

mission of Shelter House and
it is a fun way to raise aware-
ness about domestic violence

The basketball game be-
tween Okaloosa and Walton

playing four quarters that
will run for eight minutes
each. There will be a 20-30
minute halftime. "Come to

Aug. 15 at 6 p.in., and sup-
port your local law enforce-
ment teams as .they compete

tion," Cash said.

getting back on the court and
supporting Shelter House,"
said Major Larry Ashley with
the Okaloosa County
Sheriff's Office. Captain
Danny Glidewell of Walton

Inducted into Catholic
High School's Sports Hall of Fame



Wiess honored


in Philadelphia


Richard Thomas (Dick)
Wiess was inducted into Ro-
man Catholic High School's
Sports Hall of Fame in Phila-
delphia, PA, April 21, He was
nicknamed "The Toe", after
kicking an extra point in the
1946 St. James game, giving
Roman the win.
Wiess was an integral part
of the legendary 1947 team
that went undefeated during
the season and captured the
city championship. He led the
Catholic League in extra
points and as a punter aver-
aged close to 45 yards. In the
Catholic League title game,
he boomed a punt for 75
yards and saved he day with
a 69-yard interception late in
the game enroute to a 19-6
.victory over St. Joe's Prep.
These feats, witnessed by
25,000 fans at Shibe Park,
would earn him the game
ball. He received honorable
mention All Catholic as a
member of the squad that
sports writers often call "the
best high school team ever."
In the championship game
against Frankford, Wiess
scored a TD and kicked four
extra points. This game was
attended by over 50,000 fans
in Franklin Stadium at the
University of Pennsylvania.
After high school, Wiess re-
ceived football and baseball
scholarships to the Univer-
sity of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill and won three
letters in each sport.
In 1950, he kicked off for
UNC vs. Rice and became the
youngest player to ever par-
ticipate in the Cotton Bowl at
19. He was the co-captain of
the baseball team his senior
year and was twice named
All Conference catcher.
After graduation, Wiess
was commissioned as an en-
sign in the U.S: N'avy and


served in the Korean War for
two years. During that time,
he became interested in den-
tistry and returned to UNC's
School of Dentistry, graduat-
ing in 1959.
Wiess practiced dentistry
for 31 years in Florida, serv-
ing as president of local den-
tal societies and also chair-
man of the Board of Denistry.
He is an award-winning art-
ist in both oils and watercol-
ors. He was elected to Who's
Who in the Southeast during
the 1960s and selected as an
Outstanding Dentist in
Florida in the 1970s. He was
inducted as a Fellow in the
American College of Dentists.
Previously, he was also
elected to the Hall of Fame
in Philadelphia's 21st Ward.

At the banquet during"
which Wiess received his
plaque and pen awards and
made his acceptance speech,
he was surrounded by all of
the members of his immedi-
ate family from Florida,
North Carolina, Virginia, and
Philadelphia. The ceremony
was also attended by his good
friends, Dr. and Mrs. Lynn
Mayfield of DeFuniak
Springs, and Mary Chris
Murry, of Atlanta, GA. An ad
in the awards program pro-
claimed, "We're proud of the
'Toe', Richard Wiess, class of
1948, love from The Wiess
Kids." And that pretty much
summed up the feelings of
family and friends in atten-,
dance that night.
Wiess and his wife, Adair,
have been married for fifty-
two years and now divide
their time between DeFu-
niak Springs and Chapel
Hill, NC. They have three
wonderful daughters and

Agreement brings valuable

parcel for state forest


By Dotty Nist
State officials are more than pleased with
a land exchange agreement struck last week
with Walton County conservationist M.C.
Davis, and there is also excitement on the
local level.
Once finalized, the agreement will glean
an important 70-arce "fill in" parcel for the
Point Washington State Forest. Also part of
the exchange will be a 2.69-acre parcel owned
by Davis, located adjacent to the Florida
Governor's Mansion in Tallahassee, which
will become the property of the state.
"We're very excited. We really appreciate
it," said Sarah Williams, state Department
of Environmental Protection (DEP)
spokesperson.
The south Walton County parcel is located


near Hogtown Bayou on the west side of Don
Bishop Road. Williams said it contains rare
plants such as the white-topped pitcher plant
and Curtiss sand grass. The Point
Washington State Forest supports the world's
largest population of the plant.
The, Walton County Conservation
organization Beach to Bay Connection is
devoted to the protection and enhancement
of public lands in the local area. Organization
spokesperson Celeste Cobena said she fully
supports the agreement.
"it's a great thing that finally we are
adding to Point Washington State Forest,"
said Cobena.
She called the parcel a "nice connector"

S.W. Fire District


lieutenant honored


for service
By Dotty Nist
A special award for Paul Malos of Point Washington,
recently back from military service in Afghanistan, was at
the top of the agenda at the Aug. 7 South Walton Fire District
(SWFD) board meting.
SWFD Chief Les Hallman, presented the award in
appreciation of Staff Sgt. Malos' service, which included
combat duty under fire. Hallman noted that Malos returned
from his one-year National Guard tour with a Purple Heart
and a Bronze Star.
Malos is a SWFD lieutenant with the SWFD and returns
to work at Station 5. in Miramar Beach. He accepted the
honor humbly with the observation that others continue to
serve in harm's way.
Turning to other matters, the fire commissioners discussed
options for modifications to their charter in response to the
county's creation of a new voting precinct, Precinct 34, which
will have. its polling place at Rosemary Beach for the
upcoming elections.
Currently SWFD fire commissioners are elected at large
but seats are tied to the voting precincts, and candidates are
required to be residents of their precinct.
Precinct 34 consists of territory previously included as
part of Precinct 15. There are 1095 registered voters in the
new precinct.
Board attorney Allan Ramey noted that among the
possibilities would be having one fire commissioner represent
the two precincts or to go to an "at large" arrangement for
all seven seats. Currently there are just two seats that do
not require residency in a particular precinct for candidates.
Ramey said that a modification to the SWFD charter will
require a special act of the Florida Legislature.
He observed that going to all' "at large" seats would
eliminate the need to go through this procedure every time
the county makes a change in voting precincts.
Hallman added that another option would be for the
SWFD to define its own geographic areas for fire
commissioner seats.
Fire Commissioner Tom Cooper asked if it would not be
possible to get seven fire commissioners living in one part of
the district with all at large seats. Ramey answered that
that would indeed be possible.
Fire Commissioner Mike Stange did not think that would
be a problem, observing that in his opinion all issues
coming before the fire board are south Walton County ones
rather than precinct-driven.
Hallman said it is his impression that most fire districts
operate with at all large seats but said he would research
the matter and report back to the fire commissioners.
Hallman reported that plans for the SWFD's secondary
public service answering point (PSAP) approved last month

by the Walton County Board of County Commissioners are
on track, with submission to the state for approval of the
new PSAP now being finalized. He said the SWFD has the
required staff for the PSAP and that the SWFD property
near the corner U.S. 98 and CR-393 is ready to house the
dispatchers. The fire district anticipates having staff at work
dispatching for services provided by the SWFD from that
location in less than a month. SWFD services include fire
response and emergency medical transport for emergencies
south of the bay.
This is to be a temporary location for the SWFD
dispatchers. The fire district has a draft contract for
construction of a communications and training facility on
the rear of the CR-393 North headquarters property. Plans
are for the dispatchers to operate from the new facility once
it is completed.
The fire commissioners have scheduled two budget
hearings for next month. The first one, a preliminary hearing
is set for 5:01 p.m. on Sept. 13. The September fire board
meeting will precede that hearing at 4 p.m.
The final budget hearing is set for 5:01 p.m. on on Sept.
20. Both hearings will take place at the fire district
headquarters on CR-393 North and are open to public
attendance and input.

and explained that this was
one of many areas within the
forest boundaries where
there had been a need to "fill
in" gaps through state land
acquisition of privately
owned parcels.
Davis said he will be
pleased to put the 70 acres,
which he has maintained in
its natural state, in state
hands so that it will be
preserved in perpetuity. He
also commented that he will
be glad to have the
Tallahassee parcel under
state ownership, since the
uses envisioned for it will not
include high-rise
development, as might have
occurred if it had been sold to
private interests. Davis said
he paid $1.4 million for the
Tallahassee parcel but that
he will be receiving just the
$1.2 appraisal value of the
property in the exchange.
The state plans for the 2.69

known as the Point
Washington State Forest was
purchased by the state in
1992 as part of 18,000 acres
that were being held by the
Resolution Trust Corporation
at that time. The Point
Washington State Forest
currently encompasses over
15,000 acres.
The 1992 state acquisition
included many parcels that
were not contiguous and that
have been difficult for the
state to manage. Some were
therefore identified as
surplus land, subject to sale.
The latter were located
outside the "Florida Fovever"
boundaries set by the state
within which "fill-in" parcels
are being sought for Point
Washington State Forest,
Florida Forever being the
state's current land
acquisition program.
As part of the agreement
between Davis and the state,
nine small parcels identified
for surplussing, a total of 59
acres, will go to Davis,
Williams said. Eight of those
will be exchanged for his 70-
acre parcel, she explained.
The ninth surplus parcel, 9.8
acres in size, along with a
$760,000 payment from the
state Department of
Management Services, will go
to Davis' company SRW
Properties in exchange for
the Tallahassee property,
Williams added.
Davis said the parcels he
will be acquiring from the
state are mostly wetlands. He
commented that he plans to
retain those properties, leave
them natural, and let them
continue to function as
wetland habitat. At some
point he may consider putting
them into a wetland
mitigation bank, he added.
Davis and fellow Florida
conservationist Sam Shine
are co-owners of the largest
privately funded
conservation area east of the
Mississippi River, Nokuse
Plantation, located in central
Walton County near
Freeport.
The agreement between
Davis and the state regarding
Point Washington State
Forest is expected to be
finralized within 120 days.,

The West Indies
Market is closing for
another season. It
has been a one-stop
art shop for eight
years, bringing art-
ists in from around
the world. Plans are
underway to bring it
back for the ninth
season.

In 1998, the West Indies
Market had one or two dozen
artists that would cram un-
der a tent on Saturday while
a few hundred browsers filed
around the table to check out
the merchandise. It has
grown to nearly 60 artists,
gathering every second
weekend of the month from
May to August. The artwork
is nationally and interna-
tionally recognized.
Once considered a small,
hangout for roadside ven-
dors, the West Indies Market
has hitched itself to.the fine
arts train and refuses to let
go. At every market, artists
from around the country and
around the world descend on
Rosemary Beach for a week-
end of live entertainment,
tent after tent of fine art, and
the feeling of being in an art
village in the Caribbean.
The sounds of steel drum
bands playing, the smell of
fresh food being grilled in the
surrounding restaurants,
and the background noise of
car alarms and yelling chil-
dren all set the mood for a
day of shopping and art ap-
preciation.

Rosemary Beach comes
alive with tourists,
homeowners, vendors and
media as the tent setup is
complete and the art is ready
to be displayed. Parents with
baby strollers, newlyweds
with smiles still on their


faces, homeowners with their
interior decorators in tow, all
crowd the markets for a
chance to see and purchase
artwork from up-and-com-
ing artists, or from an inter-
national artist displaying for
the weekend.
Artists such as Don Saw-
yer, Ricky Steele, Pam Camp,
Judy Schillingburg, Dwight
Ward, Traci Dolly, Sydney
Carter, Russ Traver, Lloyd
Hinze, Dorothea Jones,
Celeste Cobena, just to name
a few, have' started their ca-
reers at the market. Many
still have annual booth
spaces, while others have
gone on, returning occasion-
ally to visit and exhibit their
newest collections.
Hundreds of thousands of
homes, locally and nationally,
display works of art and col-
lectibles that were found and
purchased at the markets. It
is a variety of paintings, pot-
tery, sculpture, metal works,
stained glass, handmade fur-
niture and hand-blown glass
jewelry that will satisfy any
artistic taste.
For many, it is a chance to
find next season's collection
from their favorite artists. No
matter what attendees are
looking for, they always leave
with more than they
planned to buy.
I think that is what is
called the "Wal-Mart way of
marketing."
This weekend will mark
the final two-day show of the
season for the West Indies
Market at Rosemary Beach.
Though some assumed that
the markets would not be re-
turning to Rosemary Beach,
those assumptions are incor-
rect. Organizers are already
gearing up for the 2007 sea-
son.
This weekend's market
will take place Aug. 12 and
13, from 10 a.m. -6 p.m. both
days. For more information,
call Hilltop Productions at
951-2148.
