WHEN THIS JAIL OPENS, for the first time in Walton County history, it will be under
the operation of the county commission,


Jail soon under new


management


By Dotty Nist
Walton County has set its
course for a jail operated by
a corrections director under
the supervision of the county
administrator.
The decision to pursue
this option took place at the
Aug. 8 Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) meeting. This was a
choice the commissioners
faced in the wake of a July
12 letter from Walton County
Sheriff Ralph Johns,on
indicating that the sheriff
would no longer operate the
county jail, effective Jan. 1,
2007.
At the Aug. 8 BCC
meeting, County Adminis-
trator Ronnie Bell reported
that a team had been set up
to prepare for the transition
ofjail operation, consisting of
himself, Assistant County
Administrator Shirl Wil-
liams, Human Resources
Director Gary Mattison,
Finance Director Bill Imfeld,
and Legal Services Director
David Hallman.
As an alternative to
setting up a corrections
division and director, another
option on the table for the
county had been contracting
the operation of the jail to a
private company. Discussion
included the later option.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows asked Bell if
he had any idea of the cost of
one alternative versus the
other.
Bell said he had collected
a "limited, amount" of
information on the costs of

school board

district 3 seat
Paul Davis wants to be
your School Board Represen-
tative for District 3. Davis
said, "I am .dedicated to the
students and issues that af-
fect our Walton County
Schools and I would appreci-
ate the opportunity to serve
in the capacity as a School
Board Member, but I can only
enjoy that privilege with
your vote."
Davis has two children
that attend Walton County
Schools and his wife is a
teacher in our county. He
feels it is important that we
elect someone who has a di-
rect connection to the every-
day happenings within the
schools. "The school board
members must be informed
and have some type of direct
connection to the schools in
order to make informed and


the 'two types of operation,
but that it had been difficult
to compare costs since the
facilities being examined
were of different sizes and in
a variety of locations.
He urged for a prompt
decision so that the county
could have the person or
company who would run the
jail in place by Oct. 1, and
preparatibris for the Jan. 1
transition could get on a fast
track.
"We've got until January
first to do something," Bell
said. He added that the jail
staff members working for
the sheriff's office were
getting anxious about
whether or not their jobs
would continue after Jan. 1.
*Bell said he wanted to
advertise beginning on Aug.
9 for someone to operate the
jail.
"I don't feel I have all the
information to make a
decision," Meadows
commented. She observed
that it would be possible to
contract with a private
company with the condition
that the current jail staff
would be retained.
District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones said that, in his
opinion, hiring a corrections
director, who would be
accountable to the county
administrator, would best
serve the interest of the
county. He also was strongly
in favor of keeping the
current jail staff.
County Commission
Chairman Scott Brannon
agreed that the direct

cil, he has visited different

accountability that would
exist with the corrections
director option would be a
definite advantage.,
Jones motioned to proceed
with advertising to hire a
corrections director, and
District 2 Commissioner Ken
Pridgen seconded. The
motion was approved
unanimously.
Jones noted that it was
important for jail staff to'
know that the BCC has no
intention of "making
wholesale changes" at the
jail. Bell commented that
rumors can be one of the
worst aspects of this type of
sitfiation. However, along
with a change in operation,
change is coming to the jail
with respect to location as
New Year's Day approaches.
Walton County Construction
Manager Rick Millard said
the county is optimistically
expecting to have the new
expanded jail facility that is
now under construction
ready for occupation around
Jan. 1.
Located near the Walton
Correctional Institute north
of DeFuniak Springs, the
new jail will initially provide
284 beds. The current jail in
DeFuniak Springs was
constructed for 100
occupants. However, the
current inmate population is
now fluctuating between 200
and 240 persons with the use
of tents for lower risk
inmates, Millard explained.
Millard added that the

the county should hire its

county needs to take better
advantage of the services
provided by "Florida's Great

be in limbo. Attracting addi-

City


rates


going


up
By Leigh Strickland
Residents of DeFuniak
Springs can expect
rates increases for natural
gas and commercial solid
waste collection. A rate study
performed by Public
Resources Management
Group for the city, presented
at Monday night's meeting of
the DeFuniak Springs City
Council, found deficits in
funding. that are to be
recovered through increased
rates. .
Another goal of the
increased rates will be to
make each fund self-
supporting. Currently, funds
are taken from the
sanitation fund to cover costs
for the natural -gas system.
Adjustments to the rates
will eliminate the need to
transfer funds from
sanitation to natural gas.
If the suggestions are
implemented by the city,
the rate for commercial solid
waste collection will increase
by 20 percent in the next
year. Natural gas rates will
increase by 23.5 percent.
An ordinance that amends
the city's utility tax
was adopted by the council.
The rate was not
increased. Finance manager
Sara Bowers said, "It's 10
percent and has been since
1958." City attorney Clayton
Adkinson said it was "just
a housekeeping measure."
He said, "We're not
changing much as far as,
procedures go." A model was
taken from Orlando, he said,
"and made to conform to our
needs."
The original utility tax
was set by the city at
six percent in 1937 and was
only raised once, to
10 percent in 1958.
Two properties recently
annexed into the city
that have gone through the
zone change process
were approved for their
requested zone changes by
the council.
There is now additional
commercial property on
Bob Sikes Road. Though

City manager,


police chief to


meet with EOC on


dispatch service


By Bruce Collier
In a letter dated August 8,
DeFuniak Springs City Man-
ager Kim Presnell asked
Walton County Sheriff
(WCSO) Ralph Johnson to
continue to provide dispatch
services for the DeFuniak
Springs Police Department
(DFSPD) "until such time as
we can have the necessary
equipment in place, or can
make other arrangements
for such service."
Copies of the August 8 let-
ter were also sent to DeFu-
niak Springs Mayor Harold
Carpenter, Walton County
Administrator Ronnie Bell,
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) Chairman Scott


Brannon, and DeFuniak
Springs City Marshal Mike
Adkinson.
The letter seeks specific-
ity from Johnson, who ex-
pressed his desire to the city,
manager and mayor on July
13 that the police depart-
ment take over its own dis`-
patching. At the time he
made his wishes known,
Johnson did not name a date
by which he would discon-:
tinue service.
The letter refers to a 1980
contract under which the,
WCSO provides dispatch ser-
vice to the police. That con-
tract has been renewed
yearly on November 25 "at

JIM McCALL, Chief Financial Officer for the Walton
County School District, presented the tentative budget to
school board members at the August 7 meeting.



School district


getting more


from dollar


By Patrick Casey
Chief Financial Officer
Jim McCall presented the
Walton County School Board
with the 2006-07 tentative
operating budget at the
August 7 school board
meeting. McCall, who is in
his twenty-third year as
C.F.O., commented to
members that the county is
getting more without having
to tax more.
The total budget for the
fiscal year includes the
General Operating funds,
Food Service, Federal
Programs, Debt Service, and
Capital Projects. As of July
14 those divisions comprised
a total budget of
$118,532,861. (See chart)
"We have reviewed the
budget in depth in
.:comparison to last year's
revenues and expenditures
in our finance department
and in two budget workshops
and one budget meeting. We
have pointed out in these
meetings that the, projected
increase and revenues in the
general operating fund, the
fund that is used to run the
day-to-day operations of the
school system, the increase is
approximately $6,670,000,"
McCall stated. .
"Of this $6,670,000,
$2,025,000 is budgeted for
new positions, these
positions are primarily as a
result of the citizens class
size reduction constitutional
amendment, and also
for reading coaches
associated at the middle and
high school reading levels. An
additional $605,000 is
required for the increased
premium cost for the state
retirement program,
$460,000 for the cost of
utilities 2'-d diesel fuel,
$400,000 for facilities
insurance, $330,000 for the
Star Program, $290,000 for
the reading program, and
$210,000 for the increase of
premium costs of
employee health insurance."
"A substantial portion of


the increase in millage over
the rollback rate is also
appropriated in capital
projects. Major capital
projects budgeted include: an
elementary school at Mossy
Head-$16,330,000; a new
Walton High School-
$14,339,000; a gymnasium at
Paxton-$4,304,000;
lease purchase payments-
$3,100,000; Emerald Coast
Middle School-$1,256,000;
and all other projects-
$8,003,000."
"It is important to
remember that the millage
rate is actually decreasing,
and the increase in rollback
rate is due primarily to new
construction. Last year the
total millage tate was
4.456 mills, this year the
requested millage is 4.183
mills, which is a decrease of
.273 mills. The millage rate
to fund the expenditures of
the school district has
decreased for nine straight
years."
"On a home with a taxable
value of $100,000 after
homestead exemption, the
reduction in taxes would be
approximately $20. On -a
home with a taxable value of
$200,000 after homestead
exemption, the reduction in
taxes would be
approximately $48."
"The current requested
millage rate of 4.183 mills is
less than of the millage rate
of 1996-97, ten years ago;
which was 9.119 mills."
One mill is equal to one
one-thousandth of a United
State dollar.
On Thursday, August 10;
the district released more
good news as teachers in the
county will receive a 12% pay
raise this year. According to
McCall, Walton Couny
teacher salaries have risi
from 55th out of 67 counties.
to 30th in teacher pay ov t
the last four years, and that
does not include this yea'
increase which should talt

Public Works: Working for the County


By LEAH STRATMANN
As much as the presence of
orange cones on the road-
ways produces groans from
drivers, in most cases, it
means the 155 employees of
Walton County's department
of public works are on the job.
In order to catch up with
what has been done and
what is planned for the fu-
ture, The Beach Breeze had
a chat with assistant public
works director Ryan
Douglass.
Many people are curious
about what criteria are used
before paving a road.
Douglass said, "There are
many factors involved. We
look to see how many people
live on a road that will ben-
efit from a paved road, what
the maintenance costs have
been in the past and the
closeness of a connector road
and how often the road
washes out. Each unpaved
road is maintained by the
county on a regular basis and
soon we hope to be able to
publish this information
regularly. Another area we
look at before paving a road
is whether or not there will
be any permitting problems
with environmental agen-
cies.
While describing problems
associated with obtaining
right of way before paving
starts, Douglass said, "The
way we look at it. If we can't
get a right of way, we don't
pave it. We need to have room

The DeFuniak Springs,
Area Council will be holding

hours of 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.,
at the Chautauqua Building,
95 Circle Drive. The public
is invited to share in this
opportunity to promote a


for utilities to get out of the
roadway. We try to pave with
a 50-foot right of way in ac-
cordance with the land devel-
opment code, but we prefer a
60-foot right of way."
Cost is another factor. The
cost of paving a single mile
of road varies from $100,000
to $300,000 dollars and the
difference in the price de-
pends on whether the work
is carried out from in-house
or contracted out. "Some jobs
are just too big or too in-
volved for the staff we have,
so we contract the job. In
some cases, we have no choice
but to go outside, but some-
times we also have grant
money to defray the extra
cost. For instance, an in-
house paving job usually in-
volves three workers doing
traffic control, but a large
project may take as many as
six people to control traffic.
We don't have the personnel
for that," he said.
"If a project gets too large,
we don't want any part of it.
If it takes our guys away from
maintenance, then we have a
problem. A rule of thumb we
use is this: if it is a project on
a Department of Transporta-
tion (DOT) road, it will be
contracted out. Anything re-
quiring work outside our
area of expertise, like traffic
lights, we have to contract it
out. These instances are
planned for in the budget, but
we are doing more in-house
work than ever before," he
said.

Since January 2006, Pub-
lic Works has paved East and
West Mallard Road, Roberts
Drive, Holly Tree Lane,
Bayloop Road, five roads in
the Beach Highlands Subdi-
vision, Penn Williams Road,
C.J. Laird Road, Mitchem
Road, Flowersview Blvd., and
County Road 147. Bridges
the beginning of the year
include Cook Road Bridge
and Whitfield Road Bridge,
The Williams Road Bridge is
80 percent complete, and
they county crews have
- worked on multiple large cul-
verts across Bayloop Road
project.
The most important ques-
tion to most residents is -
which roads are scheduled
next?
Ryan said, "A new capital
improvements plan is being
compiled for approval by the
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) of which a por-
tion of projects from Growth
Management is being
interjected. We hope to have
two to three years of informa-
tion after the plan is com-
piled," he said.
We are now much more
' able to provide the proper in-
formation to the BCC. If a
road is todfar gone and needs
to be totally rebuilt,'we won't
go down and do an overlay.
However, if we can save a
road by putting on an over-
lay and make it last another
10 years, we'd rather do that
than tear up another road.
We are trying to be as intel-

"On most jobs, there are
approximately people and
it takes one to three days to
pave a lane mile, which is one
side of the road. Contracting
paving crews are typically
larger than this. On most of
our jobs we have a foreman,
two men running the screed,
three to four doing traffic, a
man driving the paver, a man
keeping track of the spread
rate, and two laborers walk-


ing behind the man running
the screed to manually take
out any bumps, and two
roller operators. Most of the
people on a job can do more
than one job though. On a
paving operation there are so
many things you have to be
prepared for that sometimes
extra people are needed. The
paving material is hot and
has to be put down correctly.
Once it is cooled, you're done.
Sometimes you can pave
them really fast."


Regarding whether or not
the efficiency of the depart-
ment is as good, better, or
worse than last year,
Douglass said, "I think it is
better. Walton County is on
track to pave approximately
40 miles of road by the end
of the calendar year. By June,
we had paved 20 miles. Suc-
cess is measured by the
amount of work done. We are
proud of our crews. They are
working hard and doing a
good job."

B RON KELLEY
As county election races begin to roll, the rallies are being
held, political gatherings, coffees and receptions are being
held. Neighbors are talking in downtown eateries, on the
sidewalks and inside the grocery stores. Yet there is still
less enthusiasm for these races than Walton citizens once
displayed.
I was looking at some past front page stories from The
Breeze and the DeFuniak Springs Herald.
On June 9, 1910, R.H. Adams and A.L. Beach ran for De-
Funiak Springs Mayor. A.R. Campbell ran for city clerk, J.W.
Ca mn pbtll and E.D. Webster ran for city marshall. P.L. Biddle,
WL. Cawthon, J.A. McLean, B.F. Noves, Charles Turner and
George Ward ran for posts on the city council.
On Thursday, May 12, 1910, the headline read "Broward
In The Lead!" The article went on to say "The returns have
been very slow coming in and in some cases, it will likely
require the official count, which will be made Saturday to
decide." In the race for a U.S. Senate post, DeFuniak resi-
dents gave Napoleon Bonaparte Broward 117 votes and
James Taliaferro only 92 votes. Broward, was a former
Florida governor, and clearly a local favorite. Though DeFu-
niak Springs favored Broward, it was Taliaferro who went
on to become senator. Broward died in October before the
November election.
Although people turned out in droves that summer to cast
their votes in the local and state races, it was the Broward-
Taliferro primary race that stuck in the craw of Royal Storrs,
the editor of The Breeze.
He wrote, "With the closing of the polls Tuesday night
came the end of a campaign the like of which was never
witnessed in Florida and let us hope will never be seen again.
In the first primary little interest was manifested, but be-
fore the end of the second, every city, town, village and coun-
try precinct was stirred to the core. Had the discussions been
those concerning vital issues or broad principle of states-
manship, there might have (been) good come of it.
"The contest degenerated into a mudslinging match that
would, have disgraced the fishwives of Billingsgate. Every
conceivable wile of the unscrupulous politician was brought
to play...the result indicates that the Talliaferro forces went
too far, both in scurrilous attacks anonymously circulated
and in the lavish expenditure of money. It has been repeat-
edly charged, but without substantial proof, that the change
in this county two years ago was accomplished by the use of
money, and the farmers were determined that it should not
be said again that they had been bought and delivered."
And it wasn't just about the candidates, either.
The big issue that year was...dare I say it? Prohibition! Of.
course, Walton County voters were true to their roots. The
headline read, "Prohibition Amendment is Defeated De-
Funiak Votes Dry by Large Majority." However, the story
goes on to say, "It is learned through very incomplete re-
turns that the state has gone 'wet' by a good majority, but
this may be greatly reduced after hearing from all the pre-
cincts in the different counties."
Or maybe not. As Mr. Dylan sang, "The times, they are a-
changing." While that's true, I think that in many ways, the
more things change, the more they stay the same. Consider
the following statement.
"Why should freedom of speech and freedom of the press
be allowed? Why should a government which is doing what
it believes to be right allow itself to be criticized? It would
not allow opposition by lethal weapons. Ideas are much more
fatal things than guns. Why should any man be allowed to
buy a printing press and disseminate pernicious opinion
calculated to embarrass the government?" Nikolai
Lenin, 1920.
Why, indeed? That question is making the rounds in Wash-
ington even as we speak.
Here's the most dangerous idea of all: exercise your most
sacred, fundamental right as an American, vote, vote, vote!

, "There are so many far-

folks need to get involved," he
said.
The light attendance did

a public hearing to adopt
final millage and overall
budget for the fiscal year
during the regular meeting.


WCTA president Bonnie
McQuiston pointed to a chart
on the wall that showed the
perpetual rise of ad velorem
taxes paid by Walton County
residents and land owners,
and said,"That's why we're
here. There has to be account-
ability in government and
people need to know if their
money is being spent wisely."
The WCTA is a non-profit or-
ganization with members
throughout the county. Their
aim is to encourage less gov-
ernment and the wise use of
tax dollars.


PROPOSED BUDGET FOR 2006-'07
(As of July 14, 2006)

FUND TYPE:


General (Operating)


Editor,
The Athletic Program at Paxton is ranked No. 1 in Class
1-A by the Florida Athletic Association. Herbert Haddock,
the driving force in obtaining the No. 1 ranking was removed
as athletic director by Principal Mike Anderson.
In academics, Paxton is rated 'A' by the Florida Depart-
ment of Education. The senior teachers, the driving force in
obtaining the A-rating have been demoted and abused. The
chairmanship of the math department and three honors
classes were taken from Margaret Powell and given to an
unproven teacher. The chairmanship of the social studies
department was taken from Emily Powell and given to an
unproven teacher. Paul Powell was overloaded with students
(34). Odon Russell's ag class was starved for students (8).
Student requests to be in Mr. Russell's class were ignored.
The scheduling of classes was taken from Mary Watson and
given to unproven teachers. There was no class schedule
ready for parents when they came to open house and only a
partial schedule ready when students began school. Paxton
still doesn't have a master class schedule.
Why would a school principal want to dismantle his most
successful programs and create chaos at his own school? I
don't think he would want to. It doesn't benefit him in any
way. Its the superintendent and school board's job to super-
vise and oversee the school system. Why aren't they doing
their job, or is this the job that they're doing?
Anytime you find obfuscation in the school system, there
will be a politician in there somewhere stirring the pot.
School politicians often promise jobs to get elected and then
find there are not enough open positions to fill political prom-
ises and no money to create new positions with. The chaos
and confusion at Paxton is an effort to push some of our
best teachers out of the school system. All of them are good
teachers. Some of them are the best teachers you will find
anywhere. They are at the top of their game and the top of
their pay scale. They are worth every penny they are paid.
If these senior teachers are replaced with beginning teach-
ers, their positions can be used to fill political promises and
a considerable amount of money can be saved. Money that
is now being used to provide Paxton students with a quality
education will be free to use on some pet project of the poli-
ticians. Paxton students will be the big losers.
There are people all across Walton County that want qual-
ity education. They know that you can't have quality educa-
tion without quality teachers. You need to see what is hap-
pening at your school. I hope you agree that if anybody is to
be pushed out of the school system, it won't be our best teach-
ers, it will be the politicians.
To the teachers at Paxton: I appreciate the dedication and
diligence you had with my children..Their success and the
good that they do with their lives will be a continuation of
the good that you did to them. I thank you for it.

Editor,
After months of meetings and engineering analysis, the
College Avenue Complex Committee is about to hear the re-
sults of their request for facts and figures on building the
proposed Life Enrichment Senior Center. County Engineer
Rick Millard will be presenting his findings on August 24, 5
p.m. at the Church Of Christ Fellowship Hall on College
Avenue. This is an open meeting and the public is urged to
attend.
The committee had requested cost figures to refurbish the
Government Complex on College Avenue or refurbish the
building and add a 2,000 sq. ft. addition, or build a new 4,000
sq. ft. building. The information will be presented and the
committee will be making a recommendation to the Board of
County Commissioners.
Recently during a budget workshop, the city council of
DeFuniak Springs heard a request to provide a full time or
part time director for the facility. During many months of
deliberations, it has always been envisioned the facility would
be a joint city and county project. The county has included
$300,000 in their proposed FY 06-07 budget. The city is con-
sidering the request for a director. Hopefully, they will make
a positive decision soon. The facility will serve the entire
county, but in reality, the central Walton area will benefit
the most.
Senior citizens age 65 and over are residing in 34.2 % of
the households in DeFuniak Springs. This figure is from
the 2000 census. No doubt there has been an increase over
the past six years.
Senior citizens have the opportunity to become energized
through creative activity, socializing in an attractive facility
dedicated to their welfare, and become promoters of the area
as senior friendly to current and migrating retirees. The
city and county have made tremendous strides in recreation
for youth and young adults at Gene Hurley Park, Wee Care
Children's Park and the old armory.
Now is the time for our senior citizens to be recognized for
what they offer to the community, and the many decades of
service and support they have provided for the welfare of
Walton County and the City of DeFuniak Springs.
J. Buie Hillard, Chairman
College Avenue Complex Commitee

On Aug. 15, Dede Hinote,
executive assistant for the
county administrator's office,
said that there had been
much interest in the
corrections director position,
with some potential
candidates contacting county
administration to offer their
services even before
advertising for,the position
began. Hinote said that a
number of applications had
been received.
Walton County Finance
Director Bill Imfeld said the
county will be setting up the
new jail operation with an eye
to efficiency and cost
effectiveness.
Imfeld said he expects to
put the county-operated jail
into place at or below the $5
million per year cost that had
been budgeted for it in fiscal
year 2006-07 under the
sheriffs office.
He explained that he
expects to be able to cut costs
by assigning some corrections
functions to county
departments with staff
already in place to
accomplish the necessary
tasks. For example,
corrections-related legal
assistance, handled
separately under the sheriff s
office, would become the
responsibility of the county
attorney's office, and the
county purchasing
department would handle
purchasing for the jail, he
explained.
Imfeld added that,
depending on the number of
inmates at the new jail, it
may be possible to rent
available bed space to the U.S
government to house federal
inmates, with the revenues
generated being directed to
pay costs associated with the
new facility.
"We're looking to have a
smooth transition for the
benefit of the county and the
taxpayers," Imfeld said.

Paxton Town Council


adopts water rate increase


THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD, THURSDAY, AUGUST 17, 2006


By BRUCE COLLIER
Paxton Town Council held
its regular monthly meeting
on August 8, and voted unani-
mously to adopt an ordinance
raising water rates.
Every member of the coun-
cil was present, with Bobby
Kemp, Ann Sexton, Tommy
Mathis, Jenice Armstrong,
and Joe f., I,',.1 along with
M .* -' .. Smith.
"1 ordinance, 06-03,
iamends ... '... ordinances
- : ** 1 ,, and 05-03,
and and was adopted by the
S '.. uid :,L '. .1 by the
mayor on ,, .st, 8. The ordi-
nance is now in effect.
The 11-page document af-
fects rates inside and outside
of the city limits, with spe-
cific rates for schools, com-
mercial users, and for both
low and high volume commer-
cial users.
The new monthly rate for
"single-family, multiple-fam-
ily, apartments, mobile
homes and travel trailers"
with individual meters is


$8.24 minimum for the first
2,000 gallons. The same cat-
egory of users outside of the
city limits will pay $9.89 per
month.
The council next received
a report from Melton on the
construction the football field
located at the airport prop-
erty. Melton pointed out the
need to adjust the field and
move the end zones and goal
posts to accommodate the
adjacent runway.
The field as planned will
be 130 yards long and 75
yards wide.
Melton said that a member
of the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) has said that the BCC
will commit funds to the field.
Kemp suggested that
Melton contact the BCC
about committing to pay for
the field's lighting bills.
City youth football pro-
gram organizer and coach
Tom Seay expressed his
gratitude to the council for its
support, and noted that over


100 prospective players and
40 50 prospective cheerlead-
ers had signed up for the pro-
gram.
Most of the kids are from
north Walton County, said
Seay.

Though the city of Paxton
cannot give any funds or land
for the field, its contribution
comes in the form of allowing
use of the land, which is city
property, for the field.
Mathis asked the city clerk
to check the records to see if
the council has ever formally
voted to allow use of the field.

Melton moved to allow use
of the property for the field, a
motion carried without oppo-
sition. A motion was also
made and carried to move the
goal posts to the east and
west positions on the field.
The city attorney was not
present to make a report.
After department reports,
the meeting adjourned at
7:45 p.m.

the option and agreement of
both parties," the letter
states.
"By this letter, I request
renewal until we have the
ability to dispatch or have
made arrangements for this
to be handled by another en-
tity," wrote Presnell.
The letter advises Johnson
that the city is "presently
working on our budget with
plans to accomplish this, but
as you know it will take some
time to do so."
WCSO Capt.. Danny
Glidewell said that the sher-
iff had no comment on the let-
ter. As for when a response
to it might be forthcoming,
Glidewell said, "November 25
is a long way off, and we'll just
wait and see what happens."
In the meantime, Walton
C-ni ,y Administrator
Ronnie Bell said that he,
Presnell, Adkinson-and Wal-
ton County Emergency Op-
erations Director Ed Baltzley
would be meeting at the
Emergency Operations Cen-
ter on August 21 "to explore
options," including having the
county handle dispatch ser-
vices, or the DFSPD possibly
setting up its own dispatch
service. .


Presnell confirmed that
she had not received any re-
sponse from Johnson, and
that the subject of the August
21 meeting would be the EOC
taking over 911 and dispatch-
ing around the clock.
"There will be no interrup-
tion in service," said Presnell.
Presnell will get a cost
quote from EOC, which will
be figured into the city bud-
get, currently in preparation.
"Ideally it would be great
if we could handle it our-
selves," she said, "but [the
EOC route] is the most fis-
cally responsible way to
handle it."
Presnell compared the


city's situation to that of the
county regarding administer-
ing the jail. "The sheriff kind
of threw this at us," she said,
adding that the city needs[]
to satisfy the immediate
need."
Adkinson commented that
"we're dealing with the issue
at hand, and I am fully confi-
dent that EOC can handle
our service.
"We can work with them,"
said Adkinson.
Any plan proposed at the
August 21 meeting will be
subject to approval by the
BCC and the DeFuniak
Springs City Council, said
Presnell.

PURCHASING THIS CORNER LOT, currently occupied by a manufactured home company,
was the topic of discussion as the meeting of the DeFuniak Springs City Council.

development at this time,
the property at 248 Bob Sikes
Road was rezoned to C-2
commercial.
Property on the west side
of Juniper Lake Road
has also been rezoned from
the county's classifica-
tion urban residential to R-1
residential. Plans for
this property are for a
subdivision of about 19 lots,
which the developer said will
not reach maximum density.
An area on Dorsey Avenue
north of Graham Street
was considered by the
council. Developers are
requesting a change in
zoning for the property from
R-1 to R-2. Laird said, "The



MISSION

ten months, we didn't have
any news from America. My
wife felt like she was on an
island.
"We had to get used to the
winter. It was cold. The snow
got pretty deep, two and a
half feet deep, three feet. We
were out there playing in it.
Romanians kind of hibernate.
Our village was like a ghost
town in the wintertime.
Learning how to drive on ice,
that was a big deal for me."
Cultural differences, too,
presented a challenge.
"When you want some-
thing done, they're:going to
discuss, they're going to de-
bate, and they're going to ar-
gue. They're going to get it
done, but we've got to sit here
and wait while th.e,v..talk
about it. ? .
"Standing in line waiting.
They're real big on writing
things out on paper. It's just
slow and tedious paperwork
that they think they have to
do.
"The police would stop you.
He wants to see your visa,
your paperwork. 'Where you
going? Where you been?' He's
going to continue to harass
you until you give him some
money."
Religious differences were
another challenge for the mis-
sionaries.
"We're recognized by the
Ministry of the Cults, it's like
a ministry of religion. The
problem that we faced was
not with the government of
Romania, but with the reli-
gion of Romania, which is
Romdnian Orthodox. The
Orthodox priest wanted to
know why were in the village
causing all this trouble. He
said, 'We've been here 2,000
years.'
"The missionaries are not
being persecuted by the Or-
thodox Church.
Those Romanians that say,
'I'm not going to be part of the
Orthodox Church anymore,'
that's when the persecution
comes. The Romanians them-
selves receive the persecu-
tion, not the missionaries.
The Orthodox Church is very
powerful in the government,
they have a lot of political
ties. The only way the govern-
ment will hinder us is if the
Orthodox Church causes a
problem."
Grandstaff talked about
the Romanian people and
their food.
"They're real curious about
Americans, especially the
older people in the village.
They were brainwashed by
the communist government
that the Americans had to de-
pend on other people for sur-
vival.
Their concept of Americans
was inner city. They said,
'Why don't you live in the
city?' We said, 'We really don't
like the city.'
When Romanians see
you're not afraid of work, be-
cause they're a hard work-
ing people, they open up to


purpose of their request is to
build townhomes on the
property." There are some
questions, though, about the
proposed design of the
property, a large portion of
which is wetlands.
Councilman James
Huffman voiced the concerns
of nearby residents saying
that they are concerned
about the type of housing
that may go in there and
don't want to see anything
that would detract from
the neighborhood.
Councilman Roy McLeod
said that he would vote to
deny the request as all other
residences in the area
are single-family homes.


you.
"When you go to a
Romanian's home to eat, it's
two hours. You're not just eat-
ing, you're fellowshipping and
you're talking, you're enjoy-
ing each other's company.
They're very festive people,
they have a sense of humor.
You can joke with them and
kid.
"They eat a lot of soups. In
Romania, you have soup at
every meal.
They serve in courses. Like
cabbage leaves, boiled down,
put meat and roll it up, like
cabbage rolls. Then another
dish of mashed potatoes and
chicken. I can eat everything'
they serve except'for a dish
they make, it's a sausage they


The council voted to table
the issue until
more information is provided.
A list of nine large scale
future land use
map amendments was
considered. An amendment is
large scale when it involves
more than 10 acres. City
planner Greg Scoville said
that 3,300 to 3,400 housing
units are included in these
plans and said that it would
likely be "15 to 20 years to
build out" for all
projects. Only one of the nine
are ready to break ground,
he said, pending approval.
A representative of the
DeFuniak Springs City
Council was chosen to serve

make out of the liver of a pig.
That is too much for me.
The fruits, the vegetables, it's
top. The bread, the potatoes
are the best I've ever eaten.
"The healthiest we've ever
been was the 18 months we
were in Romania because
they don't inject the animals
with hormones or steroids or
[spray] chemicals all over the
vegetables. When you go to
the market to buy vegetables,
it came out of somebody's gar-
den.
It's organically grown."
The Grandstaff family is
returning to Romania this
month after spending some
time in the U.S. to increase
support for their missionary
work.

people from other areas of the
Panhandle to DeFuniak
Springs.
The city approved an
interlocal agreement by
which Walton County would

services to the city.
Council members

A Ministry In Romania


By LEIGH STRICKLAND
Romania, a country in
eastern Europe, is not a com-
mon destination for United
States travelers. However,
Roger Grandstaff and his
family have spent time there
as part of a missionary work.
Grandstaff spoke about
their experiences in the poor,
politically-troubled country.
"Romania is in eastern
Europe. It's one of the poor-
est countries over there. The
first time I went was in 1995
and I spent a month in Ro-
mania. There's about 22 mil-
lion people in the country. It's
just a little over the size of
the state of Oregon.
"They're very poor. The av-
erage income for a Romanian
is $12 a day. Some of the vil-
lages are very, very poor. The
houses are falling apart. The
roofs coming down. No win-
dows or they'll have some-
thing up, plastic or some-
thing, over the windows. Ba-
sically, it's just three rooms,
sometimes two rooms, in the
houses. The area in the win-
ter time is like living up
north in America, up close to
the Canadian border. Real
harsh winters, lots of snow.
They have wood heaters in
one room. They'll all sleep in
one room. Sometimes two or
three families stay in one
house.
"In the villages there's no
indoor plumbing. They use
the well to draw the water.

MODERN TRANSPORTATION? In a village the size of
DeFuniak Springs, most villagers use a horse and wagon to
get around. They don't have automobiles.


They use outhouses to use
the bathroom. They cook
with wood on the wood-stove.
Many of them use the horse
and wagon to get around.
Very few people own automo-
biles in the villages. It de-
pends on the size of the vil-
lage. A village the size of De-
Funiak here, the majority of
people would have horse and
wagons, they wouldn't have
automobiles.
"In the cities like Arad and
some of these other large cit-
ies, you have all of the mod-
ern conveniences, you have
what we would consider like
a Winn-Dixie store, Wal-
Mart, where you go in and
you can buy all the

phones. But when you go
outside the cities in the ru-
ral community, you step back
in time about 65 to 70 years.
We're mainly working with
the rural'community and the
small villages. Their liveli-
hood is what they have. They
make their own cheese and
butter. They live off their gar-
dens. It's just a basic living.
"What happened was that
under Communism, they
were just kind of locked in
time. Back in the early '40s,
early '50s rural communities
just kind of locked in time.
After the revolution and the
Western world started com-
ing in, it made the change for
the cities.
"It was under communism
for 45 years and 1989 is when
they had the revolution. The
dictator Ceausescu and his
wife were taken in the city
called Timisoara, and then
they were moved to
Bucharest, which is the capi-
tal, and they had a little
quick trial and then they
'were shot. They were assas-
sinated. I was told by some
Romanians that the Commu-
nists left the office in '89, po-
litically, their power, but that
the mafia kind of stepped in
and took over and so you
have a special interest par-
ties, people in the govern-
ment that are getting all the
money and it's not going to
help the people. But now this

community, they want to be
part of the EU in the next
couple of years, so what we
found is that it seems like
every three to six months
there's a change taking
place.
Either something new is
being introduced or
, something's being improved.
"My wife and family and I
lived in a small village of
about 350 people. It's in the
western part. We're two and
a half hours from the Hun-
garian border. But then,
seven miles from us is a vil-
lage called Lipova, which
population-wise is almost
the size of Crestview. But she
couldn't find any gelatin in
the stores. And then one day,
we went to Lipova and
walked in one of the little
stores and there was some on
the shelf. And so, that's just
a little illustration of how
things are improving and
changing.
"It is a socialist demo-
cratic type of government.
They're trying to model it
after America. They love
America. Communism is still
in the Romanian govern-
ment. They just don't have
control. The people that
were in the communist gov-
ernment are still there.
There are political struggles
in the government. The Ital-


ians are coming in.
The mafia is coming in. It's
corrupt still, so it's going to
take a long time to get that
political thing fixed up."
He described some of the
adjustments the family had
to make living in Romania.
"The language was very
difficult. We had about four or
five months of language les-
sons. It's difficult for me. Our
son Jakob, he's 15.. He's got
about 85 percent of the lan-
guage down.
"Learning how to go to the
market and buy food was a
challenge. We use the open
market. They have tables and


all kinds of fruits and veg-
etables. I would take my list
and I would try to commu-
nicate what I want. You con-
centrate on particular.
people and you build a rela-;.
tionship with those folks.
"Learning money was
challenging. A million lei is
like 30 dollars.
The Romanian people are
honest. Many times they
could have taken our money
and we wouldn't have
known. But they're honest
enough to want to help you.

By ROBIN NEWTON

HomeGrown Kids and Pollinators 4-H Clubs put their heads and
hands together to create four butterfly gardens at the Stanley House
Assisted Living Center. This joint community service project began
early in the year when the two groups learned about butterflies from
Dona Simmons, a volunteer from the Butterfly Museum in Gaines-
ville, Florida.
Mary Brewer, the leader of the Pollinators 4-H Club and a mem-
ber of Walton County Master Gardeners, described the idea of the
butterfly gardens to fellow master gardeners at a meeting and they
generously decided to fund the community service project.
The plants were purchased from the Greathouse Butterfly Farm
in Gainesville and Crestview Nursery in Crestview. A workday was
planned and under the guidance of Brewer the youth pruned trees,
prepared soil, and planted over 45 plants in four different gardens.
Residents eagerly looked on as the kids began to transform the court-
yard into a butterfly haven.
The following week a dedication ceremony was held. Prior to the-
arrival of the guests, the 4-Hers placed eleven caterpillars on plants
throughout the gardens. The caterpillars were busily munching the
host plants as guest began to arrive.
Many folks came out to support the youth in celebration of their
community service effort. As they walked through the building,
guests and residents passed under the butterfly dedication banner
created by the Stanley House staff.
Among the invited guests were Ronnie Bell, Kenneth Pridgen,
Dan Owens, Kevin Chilcutt, Eddie Powell, residents' family mem-
bers, and many members of Walton County RHD. County Adminis-
trator Ronnie Bell was the guest speaker for the day.
Bell began his presentation by having the 4-H youth stand and be

host and nectar plants).

recognized for their hard work. He explained how so often the only
youth you hear or read about are those causing problems. He assured
everyone that the youth standing before them were not, nor would
they be, those about whom terrible things are written. These youth,
he explained, are the ones who will grow to be fine leaders in our
community; leaders who will remember the importance of giving
back to the community and encouraging others to realize the value
of community service projects.
The presentation was then turned over to Cindy McKinley, direc-
tor of the Stanley House. She presented certificates of appreciation to
each of the youth and a plaque to commemorate the gardens.
The children then presented Cindy with a plaque to be placed
in the Stanley House. The plaque names the Pollinators and Home-
grown Kids 4-H Clubs as the creators of the Butterfly Gardens and
the Walton County Master Gardeners as the funding organization.
Cindy was also given scrapbqok filled with pictures depicting the
butterfly gardens from start to finish. The scrapbook started with pic-
tures of the children attending the club meeting and learning all about
butterflies. Other pages included photos of the Greathouse Butterfly
Farm and the workday when the gardens were created. Additional
pages showed the garden designs, identifying all of the plants and
a full color chart detailed the butterflies, caterpillars, and.chrysalis'
that are native to the area.
The peak of the dedication was a live butterfly release. The 4-
Hiers and several of the guests released 45 live butterflies into the
courtyard. The applause was spontaneous as colorful butterflies
made their way through the air and lighted upon trees, people, nectar
plants, and the fruit dishes throughout the courtyard.
Now the residents enjoy looking through the scrapbook and never
miss an opportunity to treat their guests and family members to a trip
through itheiri butterfly gardens.

Veterans urge support for Asbestos Reform Act


By A.E. HALL, Past State
Commander Florida Depart-
ment of the Veterans of For-
eign Wars
With more than1.8 million
currently residing full-time
in Florida, this state has the
second largest veterans'
population in the country af-
ter California. And that num-
ber doesn't even include the
veterans from colder states


who spend the winter
months in the Sunshine
State. Florida also has the
oldest veteran population,
and many of the veterans
here in the state have criti-
cal health care needs.
Sadly, among those with
critical health care needs,
there are thousands from the
World War II era, the Korean
conflict period and the Viet-
nam War who are sick from


exposure to hazardous asbes-
tos that occurred during their
military service. Before the
dangers of this substance
were understood, asbestos
was used in many aspects of
military construction, includ-
ing Navy shipbuilding.
Because of the long latency
periods of these debilitating
and deadly asbestos-related
diseases, some veterans who


Free national study on heart

disease underway in Destin


served as far back as World
War II are only today learn-
ing that they are ill, but
today's veterans don't have
the same legal rights to com-
pensation for their illnesses
as civilian sufferers of asbes-
tos-related diseases.
Due to the principle of "sov-
ereign immunity" veterans
cannot seek compensation
from their former employer,
the federal government,
through the courts. Often,
the only option for veterans
is to try to track down and
sue the companies that once
supplied asbestos to the mili-
tary. And in most instances,
these companies no longer
exist.
Even for the few veterans
who can find a responsible
party and gain access to the


court system, it is still a very
difficult and drawn-out pro-
cess. There are thousands of
asbestos lawsuits currently
pending in the courts, so
claimants must wait years
before their cases are heard.
Also, many of the companies
responsible for exposure are
in bankruptcy, making it a
harder and longer for victims
to get the compensation they
need.
The Fairness in Asbestos
Injury Resolution (FAIRAct),
which is currently pending in
the U.S. Senate, would fi-
nally provide prompt and
equitable compensation to
veterans and other victims of
asbestos exposure. If en-
acted, this bill would provide
compensation to sick victims
on a no-fault basis victims


would no longer need to iden-
tify a party responsible for
their exposure. What's more,
the compensation fund would
be financed by defendant
companies and their insur-
ance companies, so taxpay-
ers' dollars would be needed.
In addition to providing
help to those suffers of asbes-
tos related diseases, the
FAIR Act would provide
money for asbestos research
and treatment programs.
Because veterans as a popu-
lation have borne a dispro-
portionate share of asbestos-
related illnesses, the bill says
that these programs are to be
located near veterans' hospi-
tals, so that sick veterans can
benefit from medical ad-
vances in the treatment of
asbestos diseases.


Dr. Eddie Zant is seeking
men and women age 50 and
older who have had a heart
attack to join a National In-
stitutes of Health (NIH), U.
S. Department of Health and
Human Services (In coopera-
tion with Duke University,
Mt. Sinai Medical Center,
Miami, FL and Brigham and
Women's Hopsital, Boston),
study on the effectiveness of
an investigational treatment
for heart disease. The inves-
tigational treatment is a
combination of chelation
therapy and high-dose vita-
min therapy compared with
placebo (inactive treatment).
A.E. Zant MD is one of
more than 100 medical insti-
tutions across the country
selected to take part in the
Chelation Therapy Study, the
largest clinical research
study to evaluate the
therapy's effectiveness as a
treatment for heart disease.

Chelation (pronounced key
LAY-shun) therapy is an in-


vestigational therapy using a
man-made amino acid, called
EDTA (ethylene diamine
tetra-acetic acid). It is added
to the blood through a vein.
A national research study is
now testing whether chela-
tion therapy is effective for
treating heart disease.
Dr. Zant said, "Many
people are considering using
chelation therapy because of
the belief that it may treat
heart disease. However, this
has not been scientifically
proven. Past studies did not
show benefit, but may have
been too small to be conclu-


sive. We are committed to
working with the NIH to find
the answer to this important
public health question."
Those who join the study
will be part of a nationwide
effort to help the medical
community find new and ef-
fective treatments for heart
disease. In addition, their
health will be closely moni-
tored while they are enrolled
in the study. Those interested
in learning more about the
study can call (850-243-
8229), 1-888-644-6226 or

Pandemic Influenza:
Introduction of what's to come
Article 1 in a series-of 7

Over the course of the next several weeks we will run a series of articles on how to plan for the
possibility of pandemic flu. If a pandemic does occur we will need to be prepared so, share this
information with your family.
Let's start by defining a few terms you may not know.
A pandemic is an epidemic over a wide geographic area affecting several populations.
An epidemic is an infection that spreads rapidly affecting many individuals in a particular
population.
Avian Flu is the well known infection affecting people in other countries. It is caused by the
H5N1 virus. This flu is referred to as the "Bird Flu" because it is carried by birds. It has
affected some poultry and some humans.
The first investigation on the virus H5N1 was done in 1997 in Hong Kong due to an outbreak of
human infection along with bird infection. The investigation suggested that the humans died
from coming into close contact with infected poultry. As of today, there is no evidence of sus-
tained human to human transmission of the virus, and in the cases thia did :ppear to have been
human to human transmission it is thought that there may have been a predisposing genetic fac-
tor. Alth,.ug-h, it ik possible for birds to transmit the virus to poultry.

The virus is transmitted from bird to bird through the feces, salvia, and nasal secretions of
infected birds.
Symptoms of the H5N1 virus are:
typical flu-like symptoms
eye infections
pneumonia
respiratory distress
viral pneumonia
severe life threatening complications
diarrhea
vomiting
abdominal pain
bleeding from the nose and gums during the early part of the sickness

The drugs used for treatment for these symptoms are Tamiflu and Relenza. These two drugs do
not kill the virus; they just help relieve the symptoms of the virus. We have heard several
reports of deaths in Indonesia and other Asian countries due to this disease. The cause of death
from the virus is due to the effects from the virus itself not from treatment.

As Americans we need to think out-side-of-the box. Most of us do not live in houses with large
cracks you can see through in the floor. Our healthcare system is also much more advanced than
the healthcare of other countries. Just because we may not live the same way as other people
and our healthcare is more advanced, doesn't mean that we need to disregard the necessary
preparation for a pandemic. It is still very important that we be cautious of this infection due to
the increased travel outside of the United States. It is very important that you wash your hands
often. You should also stay home when you are sick. These two steps alone will help in
decreasing your susceptibility to this infection.

SPIRIT AND THE BRIDE WORSHIP CENTER Are you one of
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,

I Can Do all Things

Imaging the following people, and their lives, if they believed
what others thought.
Consider this:
Walt Disney was fired by a newspaper editor for lack of ideas.
He also went bankrupt several times before he built Disneyland.
Babe Ruth, considered by sports historians to be the great-
est athlete of all time and famous for setting the home run record,
als6 holds the record for strikeouts.
Albert Einstein did not speak until he was four years old and
didn't read until he was seven. His teacher described him as
"mentally slow, unsociable and adrift forever in his foolish
dreams." He was expelled and was refused admittance to the
Zurich Polytechnic School.
Louisa May Alcott, the author of Little Women, was encour-
aged to find work as a servant or seamstress by her family.
Beethoven handled the violin awkwardly and preferred play-
ing his own compositions instead of improving his technique.
His teacher called him hopeless as a composer.
Thomas Edison's teachers said he was too stupid to learn
anything.
Henry Ford failed and went broke five times before he finally
succeeded.
Winston Churchill failed sixth grade. He did not become Prime
Minister of England until he was 62, and then only after a life-
time of defeats and setbacks.
"People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those
who are doing it."
Live A Happier Life. Next time you wake up, instead of dread-
ing the day ahead, rise and shine and expect something won-
derful to happen today! When you go outside, notice people going
about their lives, and wonder to yourself what they're thinking,
and if they're happy. Feel the rain or wind on your face, don't
hide from it. Isn't it refreshing? Smile at everyone you meet. It is
a fact that people tend to respond to the look you are wearing on
your own face!
Wiggle your toes if you are bored. Be happy that you have
toes to wiggle! Be polite, and say please and thank you. That
girl taking your order at the fast food place is a human being, too
- be nice to her.
When you are eating, really slow down and enjoy every bite
of what you are eating! It's good ... well, and even if you don't
like it, isn't it great that you have food? Never underestimate
yourself!
You are always growing and learning. Just because you didn't
succeed at something in the past doesn't mean you can't get it
right this time around!
Stop complaining about your life. Never take for granted all
the joys and freedoms you have. Remember those who have
less. Tell everyone who is important to you how you feel about
them! You do not ever want to spend your days regretting things
you never told them.
And last but never least, remember that life is about love.
Give love when you can, and it will be given to you!

DESPITE THE SWELTERING HEAT there are those like Kyle Curic that still get out
and play the course in the mid-day heat.



FSU Seminoles and


Bowden say they're ready


By CHUCK HINSON
In less than three weeks,
the Florida State season
opener gets kicked off when
they travel to Miami for a
Sept. 4 opening game. This
game has become even more
heated over the past few
years due to the rise and fall
of both team's programs.
This Year, the field looks to
be extremely even as FSU is
trying to regroup and rebuild
after losing several to the
four first rounds of the NFL
April draft. Miami is trying
to get over some trouble that
a few of their players got into
a few weeks ago and injuries
that both have linebacker
Glenn Cook and right tackle
Tyrone Byrd, possibly riding
the bench in the season
opener.
But at press day on Satur-
day, everything and everyone
was looking optimistic and,
so far, no real scandal has hit
the Seminoles.
Returning for another sea-
son at the helm is coach
Bobby Bowden who will be 77
in November and is now en-
tering his 31st season at
Florida State as the head
coach. His opinions of his
team were high and he said
that the Seminoles were just
as good as any other NCAA
team playing today.
Returning to the field with
Bowden is quarterback Drew
Weatherford and his back-up
Xavier Lee. Both had impres-
sive season's last year and
Weatherford topped the ACC
league last year in passing
yards (3,208) and TD passes
(18).
Florida State has five
starters returning on offense
and four on the defensive
side. But the Seminoles will
have to rebuild after losing
key players such as DT
Brodrick Bunkley, DE
Kameron Winmbley, LB


Ernie Sims and WR Willie
Reid.
Last year, the Seminoles
saw their worst record in 24
years when they finished
with an 8-5 season. Three of
the biggest and most
embarrassing losses came in
November when FSU hit a
losing streak and dropped
three straight games in a
row.
The Seminoles went 5-3
last year and were almost
counted out in the ACC play-
off game when they shocked
the nation and brought down
Virginia Tech to earn a berth


in the Orange Bowl to play
against Joe Pop Paterno. The
odds were heavy for Penn
State, but Florida State put
the bowl game into triple
overtime before falling to the
Lions.
Bowden knows that his
time as head football coach is
limited and he said as long
as he is in good health, he will
continue to beat the field and
make the calls. Standing at
a 359-107-4 record, Bowden
and his Noles seem to have
the desire to change the polls
opinions and regain the glory
days of the 1990s.


DID YOU KNOW?
Five Sports Facts

1. Tennessee is 43-13 in SEC road games since SEC
divisional play began in 1992.
2. Auburn has won or shared five of the last six SEC
West titles.
3. DeAngelo Williams is the NCAA all-time leader
in career all-purpose yards with 7,573.
4. Troy's football team has ranked in the national
bottom ten in offense for four straight years.
5. The South Florida football team is 61-39 in the
school's nine-year history of the football program.

By PATRICK CASEY
North Florida has always
been well represented on the
college gridiron, and
that continues in 2006 as
many area athletes will dot
college rosters this fall. The
University of Arkansas has a.
pair of athletes from Talla-
hassee while Louisville still
sports a strong connection to
Tallahassee with eight ath-
letes from the capitol city.
Michael Smith, who
played football for Tallahas-
see Rickards, will be a red.
shirt freshman for the Ra-
zorbacks this fall. Smith was
in line for some playing time
last season at running back,
but a hamstring injury dur-
ing fall camp kept him out of
the lineup in 2005. He red-
shirted last year and is cur-
rently listed as a third-string
tailback. The 5-7, 170-
pounder will have to work
hard for playing time this
season.
Carlton Sanders is yet an-
other product out of North
Florida Christian in Talla-
hassee. Sanders will be a
true freshman for the Razor-
backs in 2006. The 6-0, 185-
pound flanker was a three-
sport star at NFC and will
have to impress as a fresh-
man in Fayetteville to avoid
a redshirt season in 2006.
Daniel Barlowe, a 6-5,
287-pound junior guard is
battling in fall camp for
the starting weak guard
spot. Barlowe has played in
seven games each of the last
two seasons after being
redshirted in 2003. Barlowe
played his high school foot-
ball for Tallahassee Leon
where he was a two-year
starter' at right tackle.
William Gay, a 5-11, 184-
pound senior At the right
cornerback position played
his high school football at
Tallahassee Rickards. Gay
has played in 33 games for
the Cardinals and is one of
the veteran defensive play-
ers returning for Louisville
this season.
Jonathan Holston red-
shirted in 2005 at Louisville.
Holston is a 6-6, 240-
pound defensive end who
enters the fall on the second


team depth chart. Holston
was a three-year starter at
defensive end for Tallahas-
see Rickards.
Travis Norton is listed as
a third-string cornerback
playing behind Gay as
a sophomore. Norton played
in four games as a freshman
recording five tackles.
Norton, a 6-0, 186-pound
graduate of Tallahassee Lin-
coln, should see more action
this season.
E.K. Sawyerr is yet an-
other redshirt freshman
from Tallahassee looking to
see playing time at corner-
back. Sawyerr played for Tal-
lahassee Godby and was a
two-year starter. The 6-0,
177-pound athlete continues
to work on his technique
while hoping to see some
playing time in 2006.
Kolby Smith, a 5-11, 218-
pound running back out of
Tallahassee Rickards,
has rushed for 1,001 yards
and 11 touchdowns in three
seasons at Louisville. Smith

was third in rushing on the
team in 2005 and has aver-
aged 6.1 yards per carry in
his career. He should see sig-
nificant time in the backfield
during his senior year.
Ryan Kessling, a 6-5,275-
pound offensive lineman will
be a freshman at Louisville
in 2006. Kessling faced Wal-
ton in 2005 as a member of a
veteran offensive line at Tal-
lahassee Chiles. The two-
year starter at offensive
tackle for Chiles may face a
redshirt season unless the
Cardinals suffer heavy inju-
ries along the offensive front.
Emanuel Frances was re-
cruited to Louisville in Feb-
ruary from Tallahas-
see Godby as an athlete.
Frances played quarterback
at Godby in 2005, but will
likely be moved to another
position during fall camp.
The 6-1, 195-pounder was a
two-sport star at Godby, av-
eraging 12 points and 13 re-
bounds for the basketball
squad.

Harvick gets it at the Glen


By CHUCK HINSON
What looked to be an all
but time for Kurt Busch to
celebrate his victory, Kevin
Harvick slipped in, took over
from behind the pack and
won at the Watkins Glen In-
ternational Speedway in
Watkins Glen, N.Y. on Sun-
day.
The exictement happened
when Kurt Busch was penal-
ized for pitting too soon mid-


way through the 90-lap race.
Harvick moved up, passed
Tony Stewart with three laps
to go and zoomed across the
finish line for the win.
The victory was the first
road win for Harvick and his
second victory of the year
driving for the Richard
Childress Racing team. THe
win was even more exciting
for Harvick since Stewart
has won three of the four pre-
vious four races.,

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
NOTICE OF HEARING TO IMPOSE AND PROVIDE FOR COLLECTION OF
SPECIAL ASSESSMENTS IN THE IMPERIAL LAKES MUNICIPAL SERVICE
BENEFIT UNIT TO PROVIDE FOR CONSTRUCTION OF IMPOUNDMENT
IMPROVEMENTS
Notice is hereby given that the Board of County Commissioners of Walton County will
conduct a public hearing to consider the imposition of non-ad Valorem special assess-
ments for the construction of impoundment improvements within the boundaries of the
Imperial Lakes Municipal Service Benefit Unit, as shown aboye for the Fiscal Year
beginning October 1, 2006, and for a total assessment period not to exceed ten years.
The hearing will be held at 4:30 p.m., or soon thereafter, on September 12, 2006, at
the South Walton Courthouse Annex, 31 Coastal Centre Boulevard, Santa Rosa
Beach, Florida 32439, for the purpose of receiving public comment on the proposed
special assessments. All affected property owners have a right to appear at the hearing
and to file written objections with the County Commission within 20 days of this notice.
If you decide to appeal any decision made by the County Commission with respect to
any matter considered at the hearing or at any subsequent meeting to which the board
has continued its deliberations, you will need a record of the proceedings and may
need to ensure that a verbatim record is made, including the testimony and evidence
upon which the appeal is to be based. In accordance with the Americans with
Disabilities Act, persons needing a special accommodation or an interpreter to partici-
pate in.this proceeding should contact the County Administrator's office at (850) 892-
8155 at least seven days prior to the date of the hearing.
The assessment for each tax parcel will be based in part upon the total number of
parcel units and in part on the total amount of water front footage attributed to each tax
parcel on the date the assessment is imposed. A more specific description of the
improvements and the method of computing the assessment for each parcel of prop-
erty are set forth in the Amended and Restated Initial Assessment Resolution adopted
by the County Commission on August 8, 2006. Copies of the Capital Project and
Related Service Assessment Ordinance (Ordinance No. 2003-13), the Initial
Assessment Resolution (Resolution No. 2006-76), the plans for the Impoundment

Monday through Friday.
The assessments will continue to be collected on the ad Valorem tax bill as author-
ized by section 197.3632, Florida Statues. Failure to pay the assessments will cause a
tax certificate to be issued against the property which may result in a loss of title. The
County Commission intends to collect the assessments in ten annual assessments, the
first of which will be included on the ad Valorem tax bill to be mailed in November 2006.
Future annual assessments may be prepaid at the option of the property owner.
If you have any questions, please contact the Walton County Administration office at
(850) 892-8155, Monday through Friday between 7:00 am and 5:30 pm.
Please be governed accordingly.

hurricane party on Satur-
day, Aug. 19, at 3Thirtyl Res-
taurant, located at 24200
Hwy. 331 in Santa Rosa
Beach. CVHN volunteers will
accept a $50 per- person do-
nation.
All donations and pro-
ceeds from the party's silent
auction will go toward the
medical and dental needs of
local children.
Founded in August of 2005
by Tricia Northcutt, CVHN
helps to provide care for Wal-
ton and Okaloosa County
children. CVHN plans to ex-
tend its operations into Bay
County as soon as financially
possible. "Our focus is on the
children and their medical
needs," said Northcutt.
CVHN is dedicated to en-
hancing and improving the
lives of the uninsured child
by providing free immediate
medical, dental and mental


health care.
A faith-based foundation,
CVHN relies solely on the do-
nations of citizens and medi-
cal providers.
Thus far, CVHN has ar-
ranged 350 appointments for
over 100 children with the
program's 50 volunteer pro-
viders. Such services range
from dental work to surgical
procedures.
CVHN Executive Director
Charlotte Blanton is trying
to raise awareness in the
area. "Sixty percent of Wal-
ton County's citizens are un-
insured," said Blanton,
"thirty percent of which are
children."
Donations are now being
accepted for Saturday's silent
auction. Concerned citizens
can volunteer with CVHN at
any time.

New Access Road West and New Access Road East
From Mack Bayou Road to US 331 and from US 331 to CR 395

PUBLIC NOTICE
Walton County, Florida, is conducting a public hearing for the New Access Road West and New Access Road East
PD&E Study, FPID 413039-1-54-01. The public hearing will be held Thursday, September 14t"', 2006 at the Walton
County Coastal Branch Library, 336 Greenway Trail, Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. This hearing is being conducted to
provide an opportunity for interested persons to express their views concerning the location; conceptual design; and
social, economic and environmental effects of this project.
The proposed project would provide two new roads located north of and generally parallel to US 98 (SR 30). The New
Access Road West would follow new alignment, from Mack Bayou Road to US 331. The New Access Road East
would follow mostly new alignment from US 331 to CR 395. Together, the proposed new roadways cover a distance
of approximately 12 miles. The new roadways would have three typical sections: a high-speed four-lane divided
suburban typical section, a high-speed two-lane divided suburban typical section, and a low-speed urban four-lane
typical section.


Right-of-way acquisition is proposed. Business and residential
relocations may be associated with the project. Potential
encroachment on wetlands and floodplains have been identified
as a result of this study and may be given special consideration
under Executive Orders 11990 and 11988. Access management
standards developed by the Florida Department of
Transportation under Section 335.18, Florida Statues to protect
public safety, provide for mobility and preserve functional
integrity of the road will be addressed. These standards affect
driveway access and median openings along the proposed
improvement. This Hearing will be held in accordance with 23
CFR 771 and Section 339.155, Florida Statutes. The project is
being developed to comply with Titles VI and VIII of the Civil
Rights Act.

* Conserve water because it is the right thing to do. Don't
waste water just because you are staving in a rental house or

* Check for toilet leaks by adding food coloring to the tank. If
the toilet is leaking, the food coloring \\ill appear in the toilet
, within 30 minutes. Flush once the test is complete. Food color-
ing ma\ stain the toilet.


* Retrofit all wasteful household faucets by installing aerators
with flo\w restrictors.

* If ou ha\ e a sw ifiming pool, consider a new water saving

* A\oid flushing the toilet unnecessarily. Dispose of tissues,

School is back in
session and students
once again clog the
streets and buses
have the right-away
at the intersections.
It also means slower
tourism traffic,, but
easier time for lo-
cals.


You can tell that school is
back in session. Tourist traf-
fic along the coastline has
begun to taper off. The sum-
mer season is coming to a
fast close and tourism is tak-
ing aback seat to school func-
tions and fall clothes shop-
ping.
So what does that mean for
the locals who call this area
home? It means there is time
to check out a few of the
places that attract thou-
sands of tourists a year to the
Emerald Coast.
Some of the many wonders
of the area. of course, are the
pristine waters of the Gulf,
coupled with the pearly
white sand of the beaches.
The miles and miles of azure
blue is a constant reminder
of why we call this place
'home.'
But what about the out-of-
the- way places where even
some tourists haven't even
ventured?
You would assume that if
you passed something every-
day of your life while driving,
you would know all there was
to know about it. Right?
Well the Clyde B. Wells
Bridge over the
Choctawhatchee Bay is a per-
fect example of undiscovered
areas around this area. It is
brimming with a whole new
world that is very rarely
seen.
Pull over anywhere and
walk down to the rocky sides
of the bay and you could find
flounders, crabs, mullet, even
some shrimp and a playful
dolphin. I know, thousands
visit the waters annually, but
most are tourists.
Another place of interest is
Eden State Gardens in Point
Washington, a reminder of
the past and a key symbol in
our heritage.
Built in the 1800s, the
mansion serves as an excel-
lent backdrop for hundreds of
wedding s that take place on
the grounds, in the gardens
and by the bay. It is the
fairytale day for brides as

they relive the days of
Scarlett O'Hara and Gone
With the Wind.
But just behind the el-
egance of the home and gar-
den are trails that lead back
into the woods to quite spots
that gives a sense of being
back in the days when the
house was first built. That is
until you hear off in the dis-
tance the roar of boat mo-
tors and the constant buzz of
construction saws and ham-
mers.
The numerous lakes
around the area also serve as
recreation for thousands and
the naturally-fed springs
brings in tourists from all
over the world to dive. These
are just a few of the many
natural wonders of this area.
For those who might not
want to explore in 100 degree
weather just yet, there are
things to do from the comfort
of one's own car.
In DeFuniak Springs, his-
tory is relived every day on
Circle Drive around Lake
DeFuniak. Motorists gaze at
the numerous homes built in
the 1800s. It is an endless
array of structural marvels,
landscape engineering and
daily maintenance for the
upkeep of these homes and
gardens.
From the lazy days of sum-
mer and seeing fireworks go
off on the Fourth of July, to a
carriage ride around the lake
at Christmas, the city of De-
Funiak has prided itself on
maintaining the past and its
history, no matter what!
DeFuniak Springs' rich
history sets the mood for the
surrounding communities
such as in Valley View, or "the
valley." One of the most
interesting spots is in the val-
ley at Knox Hill.

This hilly retreat has be-
come a local and national fa-
vorite of bikers who wish
travel up steep inclines as if
they were in the mountains.
The view is spectacular and
is the only one like it in the
entire state.
A,view from the top of
Knox Hill is like taking a
panoramic shot of the Geor-
gia Mountain foothills. Sim-
ply breath taking.
As fall approaches, and
hopefully keeps the hurri-
' canes away, venture out into
your own backyard and take
advantage of the area that
serves as a vacation destina-
tion for hundreds of thou-
sands. You may never see
Walton County the same
again!
